Lakeville police have a new, aggressive and rapid response plan to address active incidents of violence, including shootings, at public venues like businesses, schools, churches and City Hall. Instead of waiting for officers to arrive, forming a perimeter and working to negotiate with a suspect, Lakeville police and first-respond-

ers will enter and seek the threat, Lakeville police Sgt. Jason Polinski told City Council members April 1. Police will no longer clear an entire building before fire and medical personnel enter to begin treating and evacuating victims, but will create a safety corridor to quickly treat and evacuate viable victims.

CaringBridge founder steps down to challenge Kline Mike Obermueller again runs for DFL endorsement in 2nd District by Jessica Harper

Sona Mehring, CEO of CaringBridge, is stepping down from the Eagan nonprofit to run for Congress in the 2nd District. “CaringBridge is stronger than ever, so I feel the timing is right,” Mehring said. “I feel I can bring an innovative approach that is needed in Washington.” The 51-year-old Eagan resident said she is confident she can defeat Republican U.S. Rep. John Kline, who has held

his seat for more than 10 years. “Kline is part of the stagnation in Washington,” she said. “His record is more conservative than (Michele) Bachmann.”

Mehring said she hopes to change that by taking a collaborative approach. “We need to bring change to the culture in Washington,” she said. “We need to strengthen the middle class through innovation. As a business leader, that comes natural to me.” Mehring, who supports the Affordable Care Act, said she believes her experience running CaringBridge has given her insight into balancing budgets and a understanding of the need for “progressive health care.” “No law is perfect,” she said.

“But it covers pre-existing conditions, kids are insured until age 26 and more people are able to be insured — those are important steps.” Mehring, who is the mother of three adult sons, founded CaringBridge 16 years ago from her Eagan home. The organization provides websites that enable friends and family to share information on their loved one’s medical condition. What began as a side project, quickly took on a life of its own.

If Dakota County Commissioner Paul Krause plans to follow on the heels of Joe Harris, who after 32 years retired from the board last year, he is keeping mum on those plans. “I have no idea what the future holds,” Krause said. “I have to live day-to-day from now on. I won’t announce until the day comes.” Krause, of Lakeville, surprised fellow commissioners last year by volunteering to take a two-year term opened through redistricting, and at that time said that if he won the election he would evaluate whether to seek another term in the 2014 election. Harris announced he would

not seek office about 16 months before the 2012 election, stating he wanted to give others time to ready campaigns. Krause quickly dismissed any possibility of seeking any higher office in 2014. “I am not looking for another office,” Krause said. “I can guarantee you that right now.”

New parents learn together Lakeville ECFE fundraiser set by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A former Lakeville elementary school is now a place for preschoolers and parents to experience discovery and sharing, play and support. Community Education’s Early Childhood Family Education program supports parents as their child’s first and most important teacher, offering classes that typically include time for parent/child to play followed by child time with a teacher and parent discussion with a parent educator. It’s held at Crystal Lake Education Center, and after play time parents have an opportunity to share childcare experiences with each other and early child care experts, while their young children work with licensed teachers to interact and gain social skills. Parents have reported that the ECFE program helps their children prepare for school and

allows families to build relationships with others who will be part of their children’s school journey. Nikki Anderson, a Lakeville stay-at-home mom of twin boys, 9, and a 3-year-old daughter, said ECFE classes have helped her realize she is not alone in parenting struggles. “I get not only the parent educator’s tips and opinions, but also those of the other parents,” she said in an e-mail. “When I feel my parental tool box is empty or getting low, I can always find more tools and support from my fellow ECFE parents. I have made many friends in ECFE classes and we have gotten together for play dates and babysitting swaps.” Topics tackled in the classes, she said, have helped her in areas such as nutrition, temper tantrums and traveling with children.

A world-renowned opportunity for students Lakeville students fundraise for competition by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

An ambitious group of Lakeville North High School students are hoping to raise about $6,000 to compete in the world championship FIRST Tech Challenge competition in St. Louis, Mo. Known as “Team Fish in the Boat,” the students qualified for the FTC robotics world championship competition April 2427 this year by winning the most prestigious Inspire award at the Wisconsin state tournament. The team, which includes Lakeville North High School students Erin Mitchell, Colton Mehlhoff, Crystal Huynh, Piper Bourassa, Gabrielle Houle and Merissa McDowell, also won the distinction in 2010 and 2011. Their volunteer coach, Lakeville parent and engineer Scott McDowell, said the Inspire award is the top award given in any FIRST Tech Challenge and signifies completion of all the opportunities the program has to offer, including community outreach, volunteerism and drawing in the engineering community. McDowell said the team has donated

over 1,200 hours in volunteer projects to help grow the robotics community throughout Minnesota. Fish in the Boat members organized a successful robotics event at the Mall of America, bringing together FIRST programs, partners and alumni organizations GOFIRST and Moonbots. The team has also held workshops and hosted three regional robotics tournaments. Members seek opportunities to help younger students so they can share their knowledge and passion for robotics and engineering. McDowell called it a “huge” opportunity for the team to compete against the top 128 teams of the 2,500 worldwide. He said team members have modified their robot, and he believes they will be strong competitors. “I’ve been with some of these kids for eight years,” he said. “I believe in the program and the kids who are willing to put the time in. To be able to go into the world championship is an awesome challenge. We’re looking forward to it.” Donations for the Fish in the Boat team are being accepted at gofundme.com/fishinFIRST Tech Team Fish in the Boat members are Piper Bourassa, Merissa McDowtheboat. ell, Crystal Huynh, Colton Mehlhoff, Erin Mitchell.

Opinion

Governor’s new budget improved, but still needs changes Gov. Mark Dayton’s revised budget is much improved over his initial budget of January 2013. He dumped the “business-to-business” sales tax that generated a snowstorm of opposition from Edina to Elk River, from Caledonia to Little Falls, and all parts in between. Business-to-business sales taxes hurt a company’s bottom line because in most cases, the extra expense needs to be swallowed and cannot be passed on to the purchaser. The uproar was well deserved. A business-to-business sales tax is not good for Minnesota’s business community. The idea must not be revived. The proposed property tax rebate to each homeowner has also been dropped. While it’s hard to complain about a check for $500 with your name on it, this too was not a good idea. Rebates are not based on need and on tax burden. Many of us have legitimate complaints that our property taxes have risen dramatically and are just too high for our modest homes and small businesses. Property tax reform should be on the table but the rebate is not sustainable and therefore not a real solution. The governor has proposed a tax increase on the state’s top 2 percent of wage earners, raising about $1.1 billion. Even if he didn’t intend to, Dayton has quieted his critics by dropping the onerous sales tax. Now arguing against the fourth tier tax makes critics appear unwilling to compromise. He might get his additional taxes anyway, losing the battle but winning the war. Senate and House Democrats have

ECM Editorial also introduced their budget plans. They are similar to Dayton’s version, but they have proposed additional spending and added taxes. The Senate DFL plan includes property tax relief of $400 million, full funding for all-day kindergarten, but no specific tax increases. Some support Dayton’s added tax on the state’s top 2 percent of wage earners. Others have hinted at revisiting the sales tax extensions. In the House, DFLers have suggested adding a temporary income tax surcharge to the top level, creating a fifth tier on top of the governor’s fourth tier tax increase. They would use the extra money to pay back the school districts, and fund all-day kindergarten, among others. While we support spending $170 million to fund all-day kindergarten for all children, we urge our state leaders to go slowly on any tax increase or additional spending. The governor and the DFLers in control of the State House and Senate need to listen to Republicans when they sound alarms over tax increases. Our economy is growing. The unemployment rate is going down. More workers mean more income tax paid into the state’s coffers. That means more money is coming in without tax hikes. Legislative leaders need to make every effort to keep any tax increase to a minimum. We’d encourage them to con-

tinue to put plugs into tax loopholes that give unfair advantage to certain sectors, which might raise a few extra dollars. It is likely that some tax increases will be necessary to cover extra funding for education programs. However, any tax increase should be approved after other options are exhausted and then, only to the extent that is absolutely necessary. When it comes to the overall budget picture, a few matters bubble to the top in any discussion. These should be on the Legislature’s 2013 To Do list: • Education funding for preschool and all-day kindergarten is a priority. Funding needs to be fair to all school districts and equitable to all students. • The State Capitol building needs dollars for essential structure repair and internal improvements. The Capitol is a state treasure and needs to be preserved for generations of Minnesotans yet to come. This one bonding project must pass this year. Cass Gilbert’s masterpiece, built in 1905, is crumbling. Some $110 million is needed this year to protect and restore the building. • The Mayo Clinic’s offer to spend $3 billion to make Rochester a world-class destination needs to be accepted, after proper oversight and accountability has been established. We have an unprecedented opportunity to ensure our state has the finest in medical care. While extensive details need to be worked out, we need to make it very clear to Mayo that we are its home base and we intend to work closely with it for the next century or two. • Money the state owes the school dis-

tricts in the “shift” needs to be paid back as soon as possible, either under the current payback plan or an accelerated one. • The proposed quarter cent sales tax for metro transit projects has merit. While it deserves a thorough debate, in the long run, this is probably in the region’s best interest. As these and many other topics are debated, we ask our legislative leaders to listen to each other, not just talk at each other or worse yet, ignore each other. We ask they drop every political cliché about conservatives or liberals, Democrats or Republicans. We’d rather each elected official ask, “What’s best for my constituents?” and “What’s best for Minnesota?” 10 times over before asking only “What is best for my political party?” We are buoyed that the economy is recovering. We see the jobless rate dropping well below the national rate. We see houses being built down the street. We see Wall Street reaching new highs. On the whole, the state economy is very healthy. Still, we need to temper our exuberance. Let’s keep our state spending in line and any tax increases to a minimum. Let’s carefully prioritize our needs versus our wants. Minnesota has a bright future. May intelligence and compassion take the lead in this legislative session. This editorial is a product of the ECM Editorial Board.

No one goes to more high school games than ECM by Larry Werner

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Like many, if not most, parents of young athletes, I spent much – probably too much – of my parenting time following my children’s exploits on the athletic fields. My two oldest were soccer players whose games I rarely missed and whose accomplishments engendered an abundance of fatherly pride. My daughter lost interest in sports during her senior year at Edina High School, but my son remained serious about soccer, hoping he’d get to play in college, which he did. During college visits his senior year, we carried copies of a feature story about Eric written 20 years ago by John Sherman, sports editor of the Edina Sun Current. John is still writing stories that are being pasted into the scrapbooks of young athletes in the west metro. He is one of about two dozen sports editors at the four dozen newspapers published by ECM, my employer and the state’s largest company of weekly newspapers and community websites. Since ECM acquired the Sun papers in December of 2011, our company has claimed the distinction of sending more employees to prep sports events than

anyone except, perhaps, whoever delivers popcorn to Minnesota high schools. And, many of our sports editors have, like John Sherman, been writing about prep sports for more than 20 years. We have a few rookies, such as Patrick Slack, who covers five schools in the Little Falls area for our Morrison County Record, and Kat Ladwig, who joined the Forest Lake Times less than a year ago. But at most of our papers, those who cover the teams have seen coaches and athletic directors come and go, and they’re still telling the stories of local heroes in the suburbs and small towns we serve. Who does the sports writing has remained the same in most of our cities, but how we do it has changed and probably will continue to change. Sherman, Mike Shaughnessy and Andy Rogers in Dakota County, Bruce Strand in Elk River and many other ECM-Sun sports

journalists used to be able to cover games and interview coaches and players for stories that appeared only in the weekly paper. But the Internet’s arrival meant they had to become daily reporters who now post game stories as soon as they have results. The Internet and the explosion of websites devoted to sports have led to discussion in our company about whether we should change the nature of our coverage in newspapers. Many of our local papers devote most of their space to feature stories rather than extensive coverage of games, while other ECM papers continue to provide the stories of games that might have happened a week before. In this age of instant information delivered by smart phones, should we assume those who care about high-school sports know who won or lost long before the paper is delivered? If so, should we be using our precious “news hole” for profiles of players and coaches, stories about interesting and important sports trends such as the current discussion of checking in hockey and reports on key upcoming matchups between schools? And, more fundamentally, how important is the coverage of prep sports to our readers?

When I was managing ECM’s Sun Thisweek and the Dakota County Tribune, we conducted focus groups to hear what regular readers wanted in their newspapers. Rob Daves, a consultant who has been conducting reader research for as long as Sherman has been covering sports, asked our focus-group participants to rank the subjects we cover – government, the arts, crime, schools and sports. Sports was ranked last by two groups of readers that, as it turned out, contained few parents of high school athletes. Does that mean the only people who want sports coverage are those whose kids play? I must admit that I stopped attending Edina soccer matches when Eric graduated, even though I still love the sport. We’ll be getting our sports editors together in June to discuss how we cover what happens in the local gyms, in pools, on tracks and on fields. I’d be interested in hearing from readers about sports coverage in our papers and websites. Larry Werner is director of news for ECM Publishers. His email is larry.werner@ ecm-inc.com.

Letters The best investment

the rest of their lives. And so does our state. This is why people from all over Minnesota support investment in quality early education. So that all children – regardless of family income or geographic location – have access to quality early learning programs that put them, and our state, on the best path to lifelong success. As a state, we must provide the necessary resources to help families to choose quality early learning opportunities that prepare their children for lifelong

success in school and in life. This will require a significant investment by the state. However, contrasted against the huge cost to all of us when kids aren’t prepared, it’s clear that ensuring every child has the opportunity to attend a quality early learning program is by far the best investment our state can make this year.

Kline and health care

To the editor: The recent guest column by U.S. Rep. John Kline is typical of the Republican response to any effort to actually address the health care problem in America. With almost 50 million people without access to affordable health care coverage, Kline and his party consistently JODY DYE toe the party line: leave the Burnsville issue solely to the private Director of New Horizon sector and let them use the Academy in Burnsville “market” to address the problem. Health care companies exist to make money through health services. They have no obligation to Sun Thisweek welcomes letters to the editor.

Republicans want health care delivered only by the private sector and want markets and local control to dominate the system. Does Kline oppose it simply because it is being offered by Democrats?

systems, slowed and abnormal growth, and anemia. Decades ago, our country made ending hunger a priority, especially childhood hunger, by creating the Food Stamp Program, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP. Since then, SNAP has been critical in helping lowincome families put food on the table and in reducing poverty. The U.S. Census Bureau reports that SNAP lifted thousands of Twin City suburbanites out of poverty in 2011, nearly half of them children. I’m frustrated that some politicians in Washington, D.C., want to abandon our commitment to ending hunger in America by drastically cutting or restructuring SNAP. This would result in thousands of local families losing access to these vital benefits. Let suburban U.S. Reps. John Kline, Erik Paulsen and Michele Bachman and Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar know that hardworking Minnesotans don’t want children and families going hungry. Urge them to talk to House and Senate leaders and Agriculture Committee members, telling them to protect SNAP from any budget cuts. We must protect and strengthen SNAP and work harder to end hunger in Minnesota.

To the editor: One of the crying needs of a state that works is food. In 2011 according to RESULTS, a citizens group working on hunger, nearly 1 in 5 children in the suburban Twin Cities, thousands of our own, were at risk of going to bed hungry every night.

Letting their light shine at the Capitol Autism awareness highlighted with insurance legislation by T.W. Budig

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton not only accepted the autism awareness blue lantern Tuesday, April 2, but waved it. Kammy Kramer, an Eagan mother with two autistic children, was delighted. “It was absolutely beyond imagination, wonderful,” Kramer said of Dayton backing legislation mandating private insurance coverage for children with autism spectrum disorders. Dayton’s support came on blue-themed World Autism Day, April 2, and at the start of autism awareness month. According to the administration, one in 110 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism. Dayton has an autistic nephew and knows how the

diagnosis affected his sister, he said. “I don’t think anyone knows before their children are born what medical treatment they’ll need,” he said of health insurance coverage. In her emotional comments at a Capitol press conference, Kramer, an autism awareness activist, recalled leaving the doctor’s office a decade ago having learned her young son Elliott was autistic. “I will never forget that day,” she said. Kramer’s youngest child, daughter Ada, is also autistic. Although expressing thanks for an early diagnosis and a chance for intensive therapy for her two autistic children, Kramer spoke, too, of difficulties. For a time, her family lost insurance coverage, she said. She spoke of strained marriage relationships, effects on siblings and the life-alternating changes autism brings to families. In addition to backing the insurance mandate legislation, carried in the Senate by Sen. Chris Eaton, DFL-Brooklyn Center, Dayton also urged federal

officials in a letter to include coverage for intensive services for children with autism in the essential health benefit category under the Affordable Care Act, including standards relating to health insurance exchanges. The benefit set should include speech and language therapy, physical and occupational therapy, and other benefits. Advocates maintain requiring private insurers to cover children with autism spectrum disorders only means extending coverage to about 600 children in Minnesota at this time. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota did not immediately respond for comment. Dayton, in his proposed state budget, establishes an intensive early treatment program in Medicaid for autistic children. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, autism spectrum disorder is an overall term for a group of brain disorders. The term “spectrum” refers to the wide range of symptoms, skills and levels of impairment children

with ASD can have, the institute notes. ASD symptoms vary from mild to severe. They’re pervasive and not something children outgrow. “You’re always going to be wired a little differently,” Kramer said. “As I tell my kids, it’s a different way of thinking.” Kramer views early treatment not only essential

but effective. “It works,” she said. Eaton, a nurse, has worked professionally with people with autism for years. “We just didn’t know what it was 20 years ago,” she said. Eaton spoke of withdrawal, an unwillingness or inability to communicate and avoidance of eye-to-

eye contact as common symptoms of autism. Like Dayton, Eaton has an autistic nephew. But the nephew attends college and his symptoms are largely undetectable, Eaton said. Eaton was eager to carry the autism legislation, she said. Email T.W. Budig at tim.budig@ecm-inc.com.

Burnsville business targets head lice treatments by John Gessner

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

There’s no lack of clever wordplay in the head lice-removal industry. Burnsville hair stylist Paula Salas calls her business Kooty Katchers. Her website has a section on the “Facts of Lice.” But there’s nothing cute about a hairborne infestation — nor the diligence required to remove the human bloodsucking parasites, called pediculosis. “There is no magic potion,” said Salas, who goes strand by strand to remove lice and their eggs, called “nits.” “It’s tedious, tedious, time-consuming nitpicking.” Salas, of Belle Plaine, launched Kooty Katchers out of a van in 2011 and opened an office last November at 1513 Southcross Drive W. in Burnsville. “I still do in-home,” she said. “Most of the treatments are done here.” A hairdresser at Burnsville salons for

19 years, Salas said her inspiration for starting Kooty Katchers came from hearing a client’s lament about her daughter’s head lice. “It’s a taboo thing to talk about in people’s minds,” said Salas, who now styles hair at Sola Salons on Burnhaven Drive. “But it happens to anybody and everybody — the rich, the poor, the educated, the noneducated.” Symptoms of lice include an unusually itchy scalp, small red bumps on the nape of the neck and behind the ears, and tiny white specks — nits — on the hair shaft. Lice live for 30 to 35 days, and females lay up to 10 eggs a day after reaching adulthood at 7 to 10 days, Salas said. Hair contact between two kids leaning their heads together to share a secret is enough to pass lice along, she said. “Kids are all over each other, there’s no space, and that’s just kids,” Salas said. “And they (lice) are passed 98 percent of

the time from head-to-head contact.” Over time, according to her, lice have built up resistance to permethrin, a neurotoxin often found in over-the-counter treatments, rendering them less effective. Salas uses a line of solutions and combs called Nit Free. She’s certified in the Shepherd Method of strand-bystrand removal, for which she trained for a week at the nonprofit Lice Solutions Resource Network in West Palm Beach, Fla. Treatments — which average about two hours — begin with a check for lice and nits, Salas said. If they’re found, she sprays the client’s hair with an enzymebased solution, which she said loosens nits’ adhesion to hair and breaks down the parasites’ exoskeletons. Both are then easier to remove, Salas said. Next comes combing with a fine metal comb that has microgrooves on the teeth. Combing can take up to an hour, said

Salas, who uses a head lamp and stationary lamps to spot the enemy. “Combing gets 80 percent of the bugs and the nits out — thorough combing,” she said. “You really have to comb very diligently.” Further removal comes from inspecting the hair, section by paper-thin section, she said. “If we see anything, we pick it,” Salas said. “Hence the term ‘nitpicking.’ ” The client returns for reinspection and possible cleanup nitpicking at five to seven days from the original treatment, and then at 10 to 14 days, she said. A 30-day guarantee kicks in after the first follow-up head check. For more information, call (612) 8036699 or go to www.kootykatchers.com.

Suicide prevention a component of April 15 event After a long, dark winter many individuals in Minnesota are eager for the bright sun, longer days and warmer temperatures associated with the beginning of spring. However, for some, spring brings an increase in depression, hopelessness and suicidal risk. That’s why the Dakota County Healthy Communities Collaborative has organized the first community forum, “When to Worry About Your Child’s Worries,� focusing on mental health needs of children and adolescents, including suicide prevention, April 15 at Crystal Lake Education Center in Lakeville. “The long winter, colder than average temperatures and snow remaining on the ground all contribute to individuals vulnerable to depression experiencing more intense and prolong symptoms,� said collaborative member Kim Bushman, a licensed psychologist and founder of Water’s Edge Counseling & Healing Center in Burnsville. “When winter lifts and spring starts to reveal itself, people with depression become more vulnerable to suicidal actions.�

Suicide rates in the United States are the highest in the spring, and for every completed suicide, there are 8-15 attempted suicides, according to the American Association of Suicidology. Ten Dakota County residents age 24 and younger had their lives end through suicide in 2012, according to Shannon Bailey, adolescent health coordinator at Dakota County Public Health Department. In 2008, Dakota County had five completed suicides in individuals age 24 or younger. The American Association of Suicidology identifies suicide as the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the third leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 15-24. The forum is for family members and professionals who want to learn more about suicide prevention and mental health needs of children and adolescents. The event begins at 5:45 p.m. with pizza for $1 and the opportunity for attendees to talk to mental health resources from Dakota County. Dr. Andrea Singh from Park Nicollet Clinic will give the keynote address and there will be a panel discussion with several professionals from Dakota County. Collaborative members encourage professionals,

parents, grandparents and friends of individuals who may be experiencing depression, suicidal thoughts, excessive worry or other mental health issues to attend. It is free to those who register in advance by calling Judy Johnson at (952) 232-2355. The forum is the result of the collaborative’s recent half-day workshop to train professionals throughout the county on the signs of suicide risk, prevention and intervention methods, as well as how to respond to a suicide. Each person who attended the conference was encouraged to take the information back to their place of employment and local community, in an effort to create a suicide prevention action plan. The collaborative is a volunteer organization comprised of professionals from the schools, mental health centers, faith communities, primary care clinics, nonprofit organizations and a multitude of Dakota County organizations. Its goal is to assist children and adolescents in need of mental health services, get connected to the resources available in Dakota County. This is one of the major barriers to individuals getting the help they need, according to Bushman. “They simply do not know where to go or what

is available,� she said. “Stigma about mental health is another major barrier. Although mental health illnesses are biologically based illnesses, there still remain many misconceptions and negative images about these illnesses.� Through sponsorship of several professional and general public events, Bushman said the collaborative is breaking barriers by connecting resources and providing education about mental illness. In October, the collaborative will be sponsoring the third Mental Health Summit. Last year, over 350 Dakota County professionals from schools, county programs, nonprofit organizations, mental health centers, the faith community, law enforcement and the medical community gathered to learn and connect. Bushman said the Mental Health Summit has been an amazing opportunity for the professionals of Dakota County to gather, share ideas and learn how they can work together to further the health of all residences of Dakota County.

code violations, the Apple Valley City Council last week decided to grant the restaurant a conditional license to sell beer and wine. The possibility that prohibiting alcohol sales at the restaurant at 14871 Granada Ave. could force the restaurant to shut down factored into the decision made by council members, who voted 3-2 in favor of the license at their March 29 meeting. “Public safety is our No. 1 job, but it’s also important that businesses have the chance to thrive,� said Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland, who voted in favor of the license. “This is a family business – a husband and a wife and a little child – and I’m sensitive to smallbusiness owners who are trying to make their business work.� In January, the council denied renewal of a liquor license for Spoon – a measure Spoon’s attorney said would likely cause the business to close – after

the city’s top public safety officials detailed a host of troubling incidents at the restaurant, which husband and wife Van Ngo and Kav Theng took ownership of in 2011. City police Chief Jon Rechtzigel reported to the council that, since May of 2011, police responded to at least eight incidents that occurred during “hip hop� and nightclub-type events at Spoon that were organized not by Spoon’s owners but by outside event producers. At one such incident in October 2012, police responded to a riot-like scene involving 20-30 people and made several arrests. Fire Chief Nealon Thompson noted a total of 27 fire code violations at Spoon in the past two years, among them obstructed exits and allowing crowds to exceed the maximum occupancy of the building. Spoon attorney Daniel Le told the council last

week that owners Ngo and Theng are working to build a positive relationship with city officials and to address the public safety issues that have been raised. In a phone interview with Sun Thisweek, Hamann-Roland praised Le’s work as a “cultural bridge� between the council and the restaurant’s owners, for whom English is a second language. Under the conditions of the beer and wine license granted last week, Spoon will be allowed to host private parties such as wedding celebrations but not nightclub-type events. Council members voting in favor of the beer and wine license were Hamann-Roland, Tom Goodwin and Ruth Grendahl; voting against were John Bergman and Clint Hooppaw.

Heroin bust is largest in Dakota County history

Burnsville’s top budget-cruncher new city manager by John Gessner

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Over two pounds seized

by Andrew Miller

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Police seized more than two pounds of heroin March 29 after being called to an Apple Valley apartment complex on a domestic disturbance report. Warren Earl Comeaux, 48, of Brooklyn Park, was arrested at the scene and is charged with two felony drug crimes. Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said the incident is believed to be the largest heroin bust in county history. “To keep the large quantity of this seizure in perspective, we have never seized more than 500 grams of heroin in an entire year in Dakota County,” Backstrom said. “This seizure alone is over twice that amount.” According to the criminal complaint, police were called to Cedar Valley Apartments, 7465 W. 128th St., around 12:30 p.m. March 29 on a report of a man and a woman yelling. Upon arrival, officers noticed a man – later identified as Comeaux – digging through the passenger compartment of a parked vehicle and, fearing he may be reaching for a weapon, the officers drew their guns and ordered him outside. As he was being patted down, Comeaux attempted to flee on foot but was arrested a short distance away, the complaint said. A search of the vehicle turned up an oblong package wrapped in black electrical tape, which was concealed behind a vent in the dashboard. Inside the package was 1,197 grams, or slightly more than two pounds of

heroin, with an estimated street value of $140,000, Backstrom said. Comeaux, who is free on $60,000 bail, has a prior drug-related conviction – for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and heroin, and use of a firearm in a drug trafficking crime – for which he served 15 years in federal prison. If convicted of the two felony counts with which he’s now charged, Comeaux faces a maximum penalty of 80 years in prison and fines totaling $2 million. His next court appearance is July 1 in district court in Hastings.

Heather Johnston, Burnsville’s chief financial officer and director of administrative services, was chosen Tuesday as the next city manager. City Council members picked Johnston over two other finalists with many years of city manager experience — Mark McNeill of Shakopee and Walter Wysopal of North St. Paul. Council members made quick work of the selection after holding hourlong interviews with each finalist Tuesday afternoon. Johnston was the unanimous first choice to replace Craig Ebeling, who Email Andrew Miller at retired March 29 after andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com. 10 years as city manager.

McNeill, who was city administrator in neighboring Savage from 1983 to 1994, was frequently mentioned as the second choice. Despite having less experience than the other two, Johnston has the talent and “passion” to be city manager and will bring a “refreshing style of leadership” to Burnsville, Council Member Dan Kealey said. “I think she had to hit it out of the park to beat Mark, and I think she did,” Kealey said of their interviews. A contract with Johnston, yet to be negotiated, could be ready for a vote by the April 16 council meeting, said Dave Unmacht of Springsted Inc., the city’s search consultant. The salary range for the

city manager of the metro area’s sixth-largest suburb is $135,000 to $151,000. Burnsville is a “phenomenal city,” Johnston said in brief remarks after the council called her back in to deliver the news. She came to Burnsville from Minneapolis, where she had directed the Management and Budget Division of that city’s Finance Department since March 2004. Johnston also served as Minneapolis’ interim chief financial officer in early 2011. The 42-year-old Eagan resident hasn’t been a city manager but she’s steeped in government finance experience at the city, state and federal levels. She worked for Minnesota Management and Budget’s Budget Services Division from 1999 to

2004 as executive budget officer and senior executive budget officer. She worked in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget from 1996 to 1999 as a budget preparation specialist and a program examiner. In 1995 Johnston was a legislative affairs intern for the National Performance Review — the “reinventing government” project of President Bill Clinton’s administration. She has a bachelor’s degree in political science and communication from Augsburg College in Minneapolis and a master’s in public administration from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

Education Five named superintendent semifinalists in District 191 by John Gessner

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Five applicants, four from Minnesota and one from Wisconsin, are semifinalists for the superintendent’s job in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191. The School Board unanimously approved the slate Monday night. Candidates were recommended by School Exec Connect, the board’s hired search firm. The board interviewed the candidates Tuesday and Wednesday and was expected to narrow the field to two or three on Wednesday night, after this edition had gone to press. They’ll be invited to daylong appearances in the district next week. Those will include district tours, meetings with students, at-large community meetings, dinner with the board and final interviews. Semifinalists are:

• Joe Gothard, assistant superintendent of the Madison Metropolitan School District in Madison, Wis. • Raymond Queener, assistant superintendent of Stillwater Area Public Schools. • Darren Kermes, executive director of the Carver-Scott Educational Cooperative and Minnesota River Valley Special Education Cooperative. • Teri Staloch, assistant superintendent of Osseo Area Schools and the only woman in the field. • Robert Slotterback, superintendent of Richfield Public Schools. “I don’t want to say this is a disappointing slate, but I’m not jumping up and down,” Board Member Dan Luth said, noting the number of assistant superintendents. Ken Dragseth of School Exec Connect said more than half of the superintendents in the metro

area were assistant superintendents in their previous jobs. “I still think we have the five strongest ones in the pool,” he told the board, noting that a sixth potential semifinalist withdrew on Monday. “We’re looking for the stars who want to build their career here and do well,” Dragseth said. Thirty-one people applied for the job of replacing Superintendent Randy Clegg, who is retiring June 30. Five of them didn’t complete the application process or took jobs elsewhere, Dragseth said. A majority of applicants are superintendents now, he said. Board Member DeeDee Currier, noting there’s one woman in the field of five, asked when the “pipeline” for superintendents will “truly be equal.” Dragseth said his firm considered recommending

two other women, both of whom decided to stay in their current districts. The board is scheduled to choose a superintendent on Thursday, April 11, after which a contract will be negotiated. The new superintendent is scheduled to start work on July 1.

Semifinalists Joe Gothard has been assistant superintendent for secondary education in Madison since 2011. He’s been a middle school and high school principal in Madison and is credited with turning around the city’s “toughest” high school, La Follette, according to Dragseth. He’s familiar with the kind of diverse student population District 191 has, Dragseth said. Gothard, a former biology teacher, has been described by observers as a “rising star and great educator,” Dragseth said. Raymond Queener has been assistant superin-

Delta data center in Eagan sold Airline removes former Northwest headquarters from market Delta Airlines has sold its 15,000-squarefoot Eagan data center for $37 million. The deal with Digital Towerview for the building at 1500 Towerview Road closed on March 27. Digital Towerview is part of a San Francisco company that owns 119

properties. The Altanta-based airline will continue to lease the building for eight years as part of a sales lease-back agreement. The facility was built in 1982 and was occupied by Northwest Airlines until the carrier was bought by Delta.

Though Delta sold its data center, the airline took the former Northwest headquarters off the market due to a lack of interested buyers. Representatives at Digital couldn’t be reached for comment. — Jessica Harper

Becoming a crustacean was no problem for Ben Schwartz. The Jamaican accent took some doing, though. The Valley Middle School seventh-grader is cast as the musical Jamaican crab Sebastian in the school drama club’s production of “The Little Mermaid.” His costume is a shiny red tuxedo and his accent, he hopes, will convince audiences he’s actually logged time in the Caribbean. With the help of a CD, he spent weeks practicing the accent at home. It’s all part of the fun of being in the Apple Valley school’s drama club, said Schwartz, who’s also acted in the

school’s productions of “Charlotte’s Web” and “We the People.” “I just love impersonating characters and making the characters what I want them to be,” he said. “The best part, I think, is getting to entertain people.” Schwartz is among about 120 students in the drama club who are participating in the production of “The Little Mermaid” as actors, tech crew members, makeup artists, and costume and prop helpers. Weeks of rehearsals in the Valley Middle School cafeteria – which also serves as the drama club’s performance hall – culminate in stagings of

the adapted Disney musical April 11-13. School District 196 helps cover some of the drama club’s costs, but much of the bill for each production is up to the club, with concessions sold during performances helping to pay for props, costumes, sound equipment, spotlights and other essentials. Performances of “The Little Mermaid” are scheduled for 7 p.m. April 11-12 and 2 p.m. April 13. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and senior citizens; children under 5 get in free.

Worker charged in reported theft of $18,640 in coins A worker is charged in the reported theft of $18,640 worth of silver coins from a Burnsville home. Matthew Grant Pillar, 23, of St. Paul, is charged with one count of felony theft over $5,000. He pawned some of the coins at Pawn America in Burnsville. The homeowner said she discovered the missing coins on Feb. 14, when she returned home after staying in a hotel while a restoration company repaired water damage in the home. She’d been staying in the hotel since Feb. 4, according to the criminal

complaint. She told police there were 25 sleeves of coins hidden under some blankets when she left her home, and that each sleeve was worth $754.40. Police got the names of restoration-company employees who’d worked on the home. A cross-check of automated pawnshop records showed that Pillar had pawned two sleeves of coins matching the stolen coins’ description on Feb. 27, the complaint said. Pawn America verified the transaction, providing records and

video. A Pawn America employee told police that Pillar had said he had “20 more sleeves” to sell, the complaint said. Police served a search warrant at the address on his driver’s license and pawn records, which is where his parents live. They confirmed it was him in the Pawn America video, the complaint said. Pillar turned himself in to St. Paul police on March 18. Questioned by Burnsville police, he admitted to taking five sleeves of coins from the home but said he didn’t see any others there. — John Gessner

Rosemount marching band to host March-A-Thon April 20 event will have them marching door to door by Tad Johnson

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

They won’t be playing their instruments in the streets on Saturday, April 20, but members of the Rosemount High School marching band will deploy in teams in an attempt to raise money to help fund their 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade performance. The RHS March-A-Thon will have the band’s 200 members marching door to door in neighborhoods the high school serves to defray the estimated $2,000 per student cost to make the California trip. “We have a large percentage of kids whose families are not going to be able to pay for this out of their pockets,” band director Steve Olsen said. The school wanted to give every marching band student the opportunity to attend, and much of that will hinge on their ability to raise funds. “There is a lot of excitement,” Olsen said. “They are excited about the opportunity.” “The full impact of what we’re going to get to do still hasn’t quite hit yet,” said Jessie Cox, who will be one of the four drum majors of next year’s band. “I know we’ll be performing live in front of millions of people, but it still doesn’t seem real, and it probably won’t until the morning of when we’re all suiting up and loading the buses to head to the parade route,” she said. “But even though it doesn’t seem real, it’s extremely exciting. I personally cannot wait. I’m more excited about the Rose Bowl than I am that next year is my senior year. I know that goes for a lot of my friends,

The Rosemount High School marching band performs during the 2012 Rosemount Leprechaun Days Grand Parade. The band is raising money to help fund its trip to perform in the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade, which is 5.5 miles long. The Leprechaun Days parade route is only a mile long. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) too.” Olsen hopes that excitement carries over to the next two hurdles – fundraising and preparing the show through the 2013 winter months long after the marching band season ends in October. He’s confident the enticement of performing in one of the premier parades in the world will be enough incentive to propel the students in their efforts and encourage people to give. “This is the Super Bowl for high school marching bands,” Olsen said of the internationally televised parade in Pasadena that is viewed by millions of

people in 220 countries. Tens of thousands of 2014 grandstand seat tickets were sold in just a few hours Feb. 1 when sales started. About 700,000 people watch the parade in person. Money collected during fundraising events will be placed in a fund to ensure all marching band students can attend the trip, which will also include their own performances at a field show and at Disneyland, visits to area attractions like the Rose Bowl stadium and museums. Donors contributing $20 or more receive will receive an official “2014 Min-

nesota RHS Marching Band Tournament of Roses Parade” window cling. Those donating $50 or more will receive a lapel pin customized for the band’s participation in the Tournament of Roses Parade. In addition to flat donations, people can make pledge amounts for each mile marched in the parade. The parade route is 5.5 miles long. The Rosemount Leprechaun Days Grand Parade, which the band has performed in annually for several years, has a route that is only one mile long. If it were 5.5 miles long, the route would have to go down Chili/Chippendale Avenue to 160th Street/County Road 46 and loop back around on Highway 3 and end at the Irish Sports Dome, where the band will practice this winter. The band is expected to practice for more than 400 hours to prepare for the parade, including time spent inside the dome after the marching band season ends in October. “We are confident that we are going to do very well,” Olsen said. “The kids are going to put in a lot of work, effort and time.” He said the students are going to be working on strength, conditioning and endurance activities because of the parade route length. “They will be performing with no breaks on the parade route,” he said. “That’s the grueling part and the challenge.” Jessie, a junior who plays the flute, said it is difficult to make a performance See BAND, 00A

& Community gardens a growing trend in Dakota County BY ROXI REJALI CONTRIBUTING WRITER Linda Brown waits all year to dig in the dirt. When seed catalogs arrive in January, she dreams of tending her plants in the hot summer months. She grows tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, green beans, beets and herbs in her garden on city-owned land in Burnsville’s Neill Park. “Everything tastes better when it’s fresh out of the garden,” she said. Brown, 59, lives in a Burnsville townhouse that doesn’t allow vegetable gardens, so she grows produce in a community garden plot. “The food, you just can’t beat it. When the cherry tomatoes start coming out and you go to water your garden, and you pop one of those hot cherry tomatoes in your mouth, because it’s hot from the sun—oh, man, it’s just heaven.” Brown tends her plants in one of 77 garden plots in Burnsville’s Neill and Wolk parks. Gardeners pay a $40 fee per plot, the city tills and fertilizes the soil at the beginning of the growing season, typically in mid-April, said Shellie Krouse, a city employee who administers the program. It’s up to gardeners to plant, weed and water the plants until the soil is plowed under in late October. The Neill Park site opened in 2009, followed by the Wolk Park site in 2011. Last year, the program was so popular that some applicants had to be turned away, Krouse said. The Burnsville gardens are part of a growing trend. Last year, Dakota County had 37 community gardens, according to survey data from Gardening Matters, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit that promotes commu-

Gardens are a project of Eagan & Lakeville Resource Centers. nity gardens. Statewide, the number of gardens have grown from about 200 in 2008 to 450 in 2012. Most gardens are located on land owned by churches, cities, schools and nonprofit groups, said Margaret Shields, the group’s outreach coordinator. A garden at Highland Elementary School in Apple Valley has provided students with hands-on learning. Last year, students grew 200 pounds of produce at a plot located on school property, said principal Chad Ryburn. Some produce was donated to a local food shelf; some went to the school’s cafeteria, so students could sample cherry tomatoes, green pepper strips and zucchini bread made with zucchini from the garden. “There’s lots of benefits to showing kids about good nutrition and healthy eating,” Ryburn said. “There’s some lessons that can be learned when they’re going through the lunch line and learning where their food comes from.” Community gardens are a vital link in the food-supply chain at

Eagan & Lakeville Resource Centers. Seventy percent of the food shelf ’s stock is fresh and perishable items like milk, eggs, meat, bread, fruits and vegetables, said Sarah Schmidt, the nonprofit group’s fresh food coordinator. Many fruits and vegetables are supplied by the nonprofit’s Garden To Table program. Many gardeners are food-shelf clients who complete a free, six-month training program. The program operates 100 community garden plots at five sites, including three Eagan churches, Woodhaven Park in Eagan and Inver Hills Community College in Inver Grove Heights. “We look at it as a sustainable approach to hunger relief,” Schmidt said. “We want to follow that ‘Teach a man to fish’ idea. We actually train them how to grow their own food and give them the space and the tools to do that.” The food shelf serves 1,200 families per month, with the number of clients rising 26 percent between 2011 and 2012, Schmidt said. The economic downturn has

the coop’s mission of creating a healthy community, said community relations developer Gary Johnson. To encourage a healthy growing environment, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides are discouraged. The garden is partly a demonstration project, located near a busy intersection. “People can see that a community garden can be attractive, can be visible, can be a place where people can garden and have a conversation, maybe sit down and have lunch,” he said. Spreading ideas is also

part of the philosophy at Partnership Garden, where 17 plots are on land donated by the School of Environmental Studies high school in Apple Valley. Partnership Garden founder Pat Schoenecker hopes to create “edible communities” with fruit and nut trees instead of purely ornamental ones. “It’s a feeling of selfsufficiency to grow your own food and it’s a feeling of connection to nature, which is a primary thing that we think is missing element in our current life,” she said.

fueled the increase. A community garden at Valley Natural Foods co-op in Burnsville has 51 garden plots for rent. The garden fits well with

“Mark admitted that was not something he knew much about, and we are running down that direction in life and city government,” Coughlin said. Coughlin suggested that McNeill’s stated intention to serve no more than seven years if hired wasn’t a point in his favor. It was “a little bit of a red flag to hear that he’s looking at this as his last hurrah, so to speak,” Council Member Suzanne Nguyen said. McNeill has “great cre-

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville April 5, 2013 15A

POLICE, from 1A the last several years, and particularly response issues at the 1999 Columbine school shooting, sparked the department’s decision to change response procedures. At Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., two teenagers killed 13 people and themselves while police had set up a perimeter around the building. In an interview, Vonhof said Columbine “really highlighted some of the deficiencies in models in terms of the lethality� that resulted from the incident. Polinski told council members the new response model will save lives by allowing victims to receive treatment or be evacuated quickly and officers will focus on stopping threatening behavior while in progress. He added that coun-

Its annual garage sale fundraiser event is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Kenwood Trail Middle School in Lakeville. The organization is seeking consigners for items that include all seasons of maternity and children’s clothing (infant through size 14), toys, books, videos, and baby equipment.

cil members should alert police if they observe overly emotional or politically vested individuals who could potentially turn dangerous. “There’s always precursors to violence,� Vonhof said. Before killing six people during a 2008 City Council meeting in Kirkwood, Mo., Charles Lee Thorton would have heated arguments with council members, racked up numerous tickets for city code violations, picketed against city officials in busy areas and lost a lawsuit before he walked into the City Hall meeting with a gun. Clay Duke was an exconvict with bipolar who lost his insurance coverage for medicine. He spray painted the wall, then complained about unfair taxes while holding a gun at a school board meeting in Panama City, Fla.

Duke fired a gun at some board members from close range, missing all, before a security guard shot him and Duke dropped to the floor then he killed himself. In an interview, Council Member Kerrin Swecker said she has trust in the police department’s new plans for addressing potentially lethal situations. “For me, it’s all about planning ahead,� she said. “They know what’s best, and given the recent events across the United States in the last couple of years, sometimes you have to change your strategy.� Lakeville police are planning to hold safety training sessions on their updated methods for school and church officials later this year.

ECFE Manager Julie Ritter called the garage sale fundraiser “a huge boost� for operating the program. “We rely on it quite a lot to help support the educational material needs of our program and classrooms,� she said.

active in the community. “I know how to disguise the pain,� Krause said. For 14 years, Krause was also the primary caretaker for his wife, Pam, who suffered severe brain damage and permanent damage to her left side after a 1995 car accident; she is now in an assisted living facility. Krause said the lawsuit is an attempt to receive equity for the physical suffering he has been through because of his years with the NFL. He said about 200 retired NFL players from his generation never made the kind of money and benefits football players now receive. “We never got a lot of pension or health care money,� Krause said. “The league seems to forget about those 200. They have not really done anything for the guys that are in the Hall of Fame.� Krause said he has funded and is still paying for his wife’s care without assistance from the NFL. “I want some care for the rest of my life due to the injuries,� Krause said. “I’m not out for getting some big sum of money.�

take appropriate steps to prevent or mitigate the impacts. A lead litigant, Krause said he suffered numerous injuries and was knocked out at least 10 times during his 16-year football career from 1964-1979. After getting knocked out during a 1978 game in Detroit, Krause was flown unconscious to a Minneapolis hospital. “I don’t remember being hit or the game,� Krause said. “It was like getting hit by a freight train.� He said he suffers frequent headaches and neck aches, shoulder pain, insomnia and irritability because of hits he took on the field. Migraines frequently force him to stay in a darkened room for relief, and his shoulders ache every time he lies down. “It affects my daily life,� Krause said. “I’m aware of something that is not right. I can’t sleep, there’s irritability and I get frustrated because I can’t think as quickly as I used to.� Despite the pain, as a county commissioner Krause rarely misses a meeting, owns the 1950s- Laura Adelmann is at laura. themed Lakeville restau- adelmann@ecm-inc.com. rant Dairy Delite, and is

CHALLENGE, from 1A By 2002, Mehring decided to quit her consulting career to run CaringBridge full time as CEO. That same year, the organization was incorporated as a nonprofit. CaringBridge Board chairwoman Janice Aune said she admires Mehring’s ability to found and run a successful organization. “She has a unique skill set,� Aune said. “She’s built a very fine organization.� Aune said she is sad to see Mehring leave but is confident CaringBridge can stay strong. “I feel the organization is on a sound foundation,� she said. “I know our future is bright.� In the year leading up to the election, Mehring said she plans to reach out to constituents in the district where she has lived for 30 years. “I feel that I can relate to them more than a career politician,� Mehring said referring to Kline’s tenure.

Second chance

Before she can face Kline, Mehring must compete against Mike Obermueller for the DFL endorsement. “I’m really excited about the chance to finish what I started,� said Obermueller, who challenged Kline in 2012. Obermueller lost by 8.1 percent in one of the closest races against the GOP incumbent in several years. Mehring and Obermueller said they look forward to engaging in the endorsement process. “I wouldn’t second guess Mike’s campaign,� Mehring said. “But people are hungry for a new approach with innovative solutions and a fresh option.� Obermueller said he welcomes the challenge but is primarily focused on beating Kline. Like Mehring, the 39-year-old Eagan resident blames Kline and fellow Republicans for the gridlock in Washington. Both candidates hope to focus on rebuilding the middle class, balancing the budget, protecting the Affordable Care

Act and Medicare, and finding compromise. The one-term former state representative added that he plans to focus on ensuring the district has “quality education.� “I want to ensure everyone has an opportunity to achieve the American dream,� said the married father of two. Mehring and Obermueller said they feel a Democratic challenger stands a chance to beat Kline in 2014 as the district continues to shift. The candidates noted that President Obama won the 2nd Congressional District in 2012. In the race against Kline, Obermueller said he hopes to take his strategy further than what was possible in 2012. “We built a positive momentum but sometimes it takes longer for people to get to know you,� he said.

Lakeville North tennis courts not playable Panther boys team young, motivated; will play at Century Middle School by Andy Rogers

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville North boys tennis team has had some trouble finding a place to practice and play this spring, and it’s not all because of the extended winter. About 10 days before the season began, the team found out its home court was unplayable, leaving the team scrambling for practice space and rescheduling matches. “The courts are in bad shape and are unsafe due to surface breaking free

as players plant to move,” head coach Andy Lissick said. The courts have been deteriorating the past five seasons to the point where there were some safety concerns strong enough for opponents to back out of matches. With unplayable courts, the Panthers had to reschedule most of its earlyseason matches to play on the road. Three home matches will be played at Century Middle School and two at Lakeville South. For practice, the boys found some open court

time on the Century courts where there are eight courts, but it’s not ideal. The middle school tennis team also uses the courts, so the varsity team must wait its turn. The high school is dismissed at 2:37 p.m., but practice doesn’t start until 3:45 p.m. It’s going to stay this way for at least another year. “It is very unlucky for both the boys and girls programs as they will not be fixed until summer 2014, resulting in next year’s season being off campus as well,” Lissick said.

The Panthers wouldn’t have been able to practice much outside anyway with snow still populating the courts. Another facility Lakeville tennis players used to practice in was Match Point, but it is closed now. The team has found time at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville. The Panthers were young last year when seven of the 10 varsity players were too young to drive. The singles lineup featured two ninth-graders, a 10th-grader and a seventhgrader. They’ve all since moved

up a grade and earned valuable experience. A few of them have earned their drivers license, so they can give their teammates a ride to Century. Justin Yee comes in as the top singles player with Max Parkinson, Brett Jacobus and Sean Kelly filling in the No. 2-4 “in any order and all look very good this year,” Lissick said. “They have been playing in many tournaments and hitting often with each other and with off-season coaches, they are still young and I am very excited to watch them

again this year.” Another young newcomer, Nick Vossen, comes up from eighth grade to help reinforce the lineup. “We are still a very young team,” Lissick said. “Playing in our section and conference takes a lot of focus and maturity and we are gaining some every day.” The team’s first “home” match is scheduled for Thursday against Burnsville at Century Middle School.

Cougar baseball anxious to play outside Coach likes what he sees at indoor practices by Andy Rogers

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Although the Minnesota Twins managed to play indoors for years, baseball is meant to be an outdoor sport. Unfortunately, winter has overstayed its welcome, forcing varsity baseball teams such as Lakeville South to practice in their gymnasiums. Cougar head coach Al Iversen said he feels pretty good about what he’s seen so far in practice, but they’ve all been indoors. “When it comes to going outside it is a different thing,” Iversen said. “We are behind, as most teams from our conference travel outside of the state to warmer weather” during spring break. Having a healthy, productive stable of pitchers will be key for the Cougars who would like to improve upon last year’s 7-10 record and seventhLakeville South’s Nick Pecho turns a out during 2012. He leads the Cougars on the place finish in the South field again this season. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) Suburban Conference.

Lakeville South has three pitchers with varsity experience – Mitch Maurer, Joe Sabal and Tyler Schumacher. Maurer was named to the all-conference honorable mention list last year as a sophomore. Newcomers who also could be in the pitching rotation are Erick Cervenka, Cody Metz, Luke Benge, Cory Reiter and Matt Stelzar. The infield will be a strength with returners Nick Pecho at second base and JP Haack at third. They were both all-conference honorable mention in 2012. Newcomer Harry Ballantyne will be at first base, with Metz and Cory Reiter in competition for shortstop. Patrick Daly and Austin Schultz are in the running for catcher and outfield spots. Shane Marker is moving from right field to center field this season. It’s a young group overall. Several of the returning players are juniors, but they’re seasoned. “Our main goal is to win every day with the little things and as the

season moves forward the little things will add up, which in turn will make us better,” Iversen said. The Cougars near beat several of the state’s best teams in 2012, and the players hope they can win a few this time around. Last year the Cougars lost one-run games to highly-ranked programs from Eagan and Lakeville North, but perhaps their biggest highlight of the season was beating defending state champion and No. 1-ranked Burnsville 9-8 in late April. South went on to defeat Apple Valley 3-2 in the first round of the playoffs but lost to the eventual state champions from Eastview in the next round. The Cougars managed back-to-back wins once during the 2012 season. They hope to find out soon if they can get some consistency this year. Friday’s home opener against Burnsville was already rescheduled for April 12. The season opener now is Monday at Eagan. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc. com.

Lakeville North baseball excited about potential With several returning varsity pitchers, infielders and outfielders, Panthers pumped to start season by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK

DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Lakeville North baseball team has a healthy portion of its lineup back this spring after just five members graduated off a team that finished third in the South Suburban Conference behind the eventual state champion Eastview and the team the spent much of the season ranked No. 1 in the state Burnsville. North was near the top by the end of the season and knocked Burnsville out of the playoffs thanks to a shutout thrown by one of its key returning pitchers, Jordan Jacobson. Pitching should be a strength for the Panthers with some of the top throwers in the conference back on the mound. Jacobson will take over the role as ace after throwing nearly 40 innings last year with a 3.00 ERA and 25 strikeouts. Experienced throwers helping him out on the mound including Sam Petrick (2.55 ERA) and Dalton Lehnen, who showed much potential as a sophomore last year with a 1.21 ERA after 17 1/3 innings. He was also the team’s leader at the plate with a .417 batting average. “He was at such an unpredictable level right away,” head coach Tony Market said. “If sophomores playing in this conference bat .200 we’re happy. We’ve had players have breakout years and then next year they pitch you differently, but he knows it. He’s not satisfied. He’s been working hard. He knows if he keeps on that exponential

rise, he can be pretty special.” AJ Sayer, Nick Dorfman and Matt Arnold will also see some time from the bullpen. The outfield is stacked, returning Brandon Morgan (.286 batting average) and Zach Creighton (.368). Daniel Olson and Sayer are competing for the other spot in the outfield. The infield is reloading with Erik Rutt (.246) at shortstop, Connor Christenson (.333) at third, and Jake Braun (.299) at second. Newcomer Angelo Altavilla has already made an impression at first base. “It’s a good balance of returning players and we have a little youth, so the future is bright,” Market said. “We look really good on paper, but you don’t play on paper.” They’re anxious to see how the pieces fit on the field. The Panthers haven’t had much time outdoors, except for a few fielding drills on the stadium turf. The team didn’t go anywhere for spring break this year. “It’s been a long winter for everybody,” Market said. With games already being cancelled, Market was well aware that once the sun starts to shine with frequency, the games will pile up quickly. “If we have to push a few games back, we’ll be OK,” he said. “A lot of the guys are playing year round. It’s not like they had to go find their glove. There are a lot of kids who put in a lot of time in the offseason.” The baseball season has started this way before. The Panthers’ first game in 2010 was on April 12 and the team played 11 games in April. Friday’s home opener against Eastview has been postponed and it doesn’t look good for Monday’s trip to Bloomington Kennedy either. The games haven’t been rescheduled yet.

Lakeville North’s Jordan Jacobson unloads a fastball in a 6-5 victory over the eventual state champions Eastview last spring. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) “We only want to reschedule them once,” Market said. Market said he’s aiming for the season opener on Wednesday when Bloomington Jefferson is scheduled to pay a visit. “If we have to stack up the games, we’ll be fine,” Market said. “We’ve got the pitching to handle it.”

As always the Panthers would like to be a contender for the South Suburban Conference title this spring. It’s been one of the toughest conferences in the state with the last two state champions Eastview and Burnsville coming from the South Suburban. With Eagan bringing several

players back along with Bloomington Jefferson, Prior Lake and the always competitive Burnsville reloading, Market knows it won’t be easy. Email Andy Rogers andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville April 5, 2013 17A

Two Panthers named to all-star football game Two Lakeville North student-athletes were named to the 40th annual Minnesota All-Star Football Game. Linebacker Mitch Johnson and defensive lineman Karl Finkel were named to the South AllStars. The 2013 game will be held at 1 p.m. June 29

game. They were selected by members of the Minnesota Football Coaches Association. In the 2012 game, 2011 Metro Player of the Year Trey Heid of Lakeville North led the South AllStars to a 33-21 victory over the North All-Stars at Husky Stadium.

AV doesn’t have to go far for new hockey coach by Mike Shaughnessy

hockey for four years, he planned to return to Minnesota for a year. He had a younger brother and sister who were playing college hockey in Wisconsin, and he was going to see them play before returning to Alaska to seek a job in business. Except he didn’t go back. He started helping with the Eagles boys hockey program and became an assistant coach. Hayes put Sikich and Erik Westrum, another former AVHS player, in charge of the off-season conditioning program. Sikich played 138 games on defense over four seasons at AlaskaAnchorage. He also played one season for the FargoMoorhead Ice Sharks of the United States Hockey League before starting his college career. Talented high school hockey players can be pulled in different directions. Minnesota players are a large part of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich. Hudson Fasching, who would have been a senior at Apple Valley this year, has been in that program for two seasons. Other players have been drawn to U.S. Junior A teams. A few Minnesotans have chosen major junior teams in Canada, where they receive monthly sti-

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

After retiring as Apple Valley High School boys hockey coach, Jerry Hayes said one of his assistants, Chris Sikich, would be an ideal replacement. The AVHS administration apparently was thinking the same thing, and Sikich was named the Eagles’ new coach on Monday. Sikich, who has been an assistant hockey coach for 11 years, is part of a group of Apple Valley alumni who returned to their alma mater as coaches. That group includes head boys basketball coach Zach Goring and Chad Clendening, recently named head football coach. The administration didn’t have to look outside the high school building to find Hayes’ replacement. Sikich teaches in the work experience program at AVHS. “I love the fact that I’m in the building,” Sikich said. “Being in the building full-time the last seven years, you get to see kids not as hockey players, but as kids. You see them in the classroom, in the halls and at pep rallies.” Becoming a teacher and coach wasn’t always in Sikich’s long-term plans. After finishing college at the University of Alaska-Anchorage, where he played

pends and forfeit their college eligibility. “We try to give them information,” Sikich said. “I’ve played in the USHL and in Division I college, so I know what the caliber of hockey is like and what the expectations are.” Sikich was an assistant coach on an Apple Valley team that finished third in the 2010 state Class AA tournament. The 2012-13 season might have been the strangest he’s been though as a coach. “It was bizarre,” Sikich said. “The coaches said we should write a book about it. We had injuries and bad luck. We also had to replace 19 kids (from the previous season) and we didn’t have the numbers. Some nights we had kids playing five periods” between the junior varsity and varsity games. “But despite all that, I think we were playing our best hockey at the end of the season,” Sikich added. “We beat (second-seeded) Cretin-Derham Hall in our first section game. We lost to Eastview in our next game, but we had some good scoring chances early.” The numbers situation probably won’t be as dire next season. The Eagles will have more than 20 returning players, and Sikich said about 15 ninth-graders are coming up.”

WALTER HAS A LOT OF SPUNK! Walter is a 10-yearold long-haired Daschund, but don’t let that fool you! He has a lot of spunk and Dachies can live 14-16 years. His back is great, his housebreaking is almost perfect and he is great with other dogs that are his size. However, cats are his big enemy! Walter is best with kids age 10 and older since he can be lap protective. Adoption fee $150. Call Sue at 612-242-9909 or see him on our website at www.last-hope.org with all of our dogs waiting for homes. Come to our adoption days on Saturdays from 11-3 at the Apple Valley Petco and Petsmart Eagan to see Walter and many others waiting for homes!

Lakeville North graduate to be Bon Jovi roadie Volunteerism earns Morgan Waldorf rare opportunity by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A Lakeville North High School graduate’s volunteer work has earned her an opportunity of rock-star proportions. Augsburg College sophomore Morgan Waldorf, 19, is one of six Minnesota students chosen to work behind the scenes at the April 7 Bon Jovi concert at the Xcel Energy Center. “I’m really excited to be a part of it,” Waldorf said. “I think it’s a great opportunity because the music business is something I see myself doing in the future, so this is a really good opportunity to see everything that goes on behind the scenes for a really big tour.” The daughter of Lakeville’s David and Teresa Waldorf, Morgan was selected from a highly competitive applicant pool to participate in the Bon Jovi “Because We Can” Community Service College Campaign based on her exemplary volunteer efforts and community leadership skills. Waldorf said her family values community service, and helping others has always been a part of her life. She has been active in the Girl Scouts since she was in kindergarten, and she took on leadership opportunities as she grew. At Lakeville North, Waldorf coordinated events for young girls, volunteered at Mission Outpost at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville and worked with organizations including Feed My Starving Children to end hunger. Waldorf is an active volunteer with Augsburg College’s Campus Kitchen, a program that

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville April 5, 2013 21A

Thisweekend Slapstick beside the water cooler Lakeville-based Expressions presents stage comedy ‘Wage Warfare’ by Andrew Miller

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

As Minnesotans begin to shed their winter layers of clothing with the arrival of spring, Annie Estes is doing just the opposite. Estes, of Rosemount, is bundling up for her role in the quirky office-themed comedy “Wage Warfare” presented by Lakevillebased Expressions Community Theater. In the show she plays the hyper-religious, perpetually chilly Bonnie Little, who as the plot progresses keeps adding items of clothing in an effort to stave off hypothermia. “By the end of the play I’m basically Eskimo-

like,” she said. “I’m literally wearing a parka and mittens on stage.” “Wage Warfare,” which runs April 12-21 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, seeks to lampoon the pitfalls, pratfalls, rivalries and acts of sabotage attendant upon working in an office. Estes’ comically over-the-top winter wardrobe – one among many in the show’s litany of wageslave eccentricities. If it sounds similar to the hit TV show “The Office,” you’re not far off. “It’s an extremely relatable show if you’ve ever worked in an office,” said director Andy Wilkins of Lakeville. “It’s cubicles, it’s office in-fighting – I

think audiences will find a bit more of a personal connection to their office lives than they’d like to admit.” The stage comedy’s seven-actor cast also includes Kristen Cash, Alan Davis, Bonnie Rae, Justin Swanson, Allyson Walenta and Kyle Zander. Show times for “Wage Warfare” are 7:30 p.m. April 12-13 and 19-20, and 2 p.m. April 14 and 21. Tickets are $14.50 and are available by calling (952) 985-4640 or online at http://ci.lakeville.mn.us under “Lakeville Area Arts Center.”

Symphony welcomes young talent to the stage Two talented high school musicians will be taking the stage with the Dakota Valley Symphony this month. As the winners of the Dakota Valley Symphony’s annual Young Artists’ Competition held in January, Burnsville High School’s Kristina Butler and Eden Prairie High School’s Michelle Gomez each earned a spot in the local orchestra’s April 28 concert at the Burnsville Performing Arts Center. Butler, a vocalist who will be performing a piece from Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate at the concert, is also a flutist and has appeared in numerous community and high school theater productions. The Burnsville High senior, who plans to attend St. Olaf College in the fall, credits her growth as a musician to spending the past three summers training at Lutheran Summer Music Academy. Gomez will be showcasing her talents on the cello at the Dakota Valley Symphony concert. The Eden Prairie High School sophomore started playing at age 5 and has been studying at MacPhail Center for Music since moving to the Twin Cities in 2009. This summer she will be touring Europe with MacPhail and the Suzuki Association. Also of note at the April 28 performance, the Dakota Valley Sym-

phony will be presenting new work by composer Victor Zupanc, music director of the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis. The piece, titled “The Burning Wisdom of Finn McCool,” was commissioned through
