Seven months after starting work with the Lakeville School District, Business Manager Randy Anderson has announced his resignation. The district has posted the position, and Superintendent Lisa Snyder said she hopes to fill the opening by the end of August. Anderson said after much reflection and discussion with loved ones, he has decided the time is right to return to his roots
and reorient his career toward teaching. He will leave the district Aug. 2 and plans to pursue a doctorate in business education while working as a teacher, coach and consultant. Anderson, a former teacher and college professor with a passion for tennis, said he will coach tennis part time this fall at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire and has applied for some collegelevel teaching positions.

Lakeville parents seek solutions to Ipava Avenue traffic problem
Economic recovery of Dakota County construction
SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A crowd of concerned parents, children in tow, attended the July 16 City Council meeting to express safety concerns after a teenage bicyclist was struck by a car on Ipava Avenue on July 11. The 15-year-old bicyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was airlifted to Regions Hospital af-
ter the accident that occurred while the rider was trying to cross Ipava Avenue from Eastview Elementary in moderate to heavy traffic. According to Lakeville police, the teen was able to leave the hospital the following day. The accident heightened existing concerns about traffic problems on Ipava Avenue. Michelle Quirk was
one of several parents who addressed City Council members about the issue. She and several other parents said they have tried walking their children across Ipava Avenue’s four lanes to get to the playground at Eastview Elementary, but now drive because crossing on foot is too dangerous.

As part of the Cityâ€™s Capital Improvement Plan, some streets are selected annually for seal coating based on analysis of where it will provide the greatest longevity and be most cost-effective.
To view a map of the streets that will be seal coated this year, please check the City website at www. lakevillemn.gov, on the home page under For Your Information. Signs will be posted on all affected streets prior to the project beginning. If you have questions, please call 952-985-2711.
Seal coat is a preventive maintenance practice used to protect pavement from the deteriorating effects of sun and water. Seal coat involves spraying emulsified asphalt cement on the surface of the existing pavement followed by the application of a cover aggregate. The loose rock will stay in place for a day or two and then City street crews will sweep up the excess rock.

Lakeville School Board resolution seeks road expansion by 2016 by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
The Lakeville School Board passed a resolution June 16 asking the city of Lakeville and Dakota County to prioritize the widening of County Road 50 in their official plans and build the project by 2016. Timing of the resolution is important because the city and county are updating their respective capital improvement plans, which prioritize projects and funding; neither plan currently lists the corridor as a project, School Board Member Bob Erickson said. Erickson, former Lakeville city administrator, said he has been working with county and city officials to allow the expansion of County Road 50 to be forwarded. Without inclusion in the
county’s and city’s fiveyear capital improvement plans, the chances of it receiving funding in the next few years are highly unlikely. Concerns about traffic on County Road 50 resurfaced recently when county officials introduced a study regarding plans to add a multilane roundabout at 185th and County Road 50. The comments prompted county officials to conduct a deeper study of the County Road 50 corridor from 185th Street to Ipava Avenue, which found that the ultimate solution to handle the high traffic volumes is to expand the corridor to four lanes. School officials are concerned about the road because it is the only access point for Kenwood Trail Middle School. Bus and vehicle backups are common as driv-
ers wait for space to enter County Road 50 at the school and at neighborhoods along the road. The resolution suggests funds slated for resurfacing be instead saved and used to expand the road into a four-lane divided highway, and it notes the city of Lakeville and Dakota County have indicated support to widen the road by acquiring a property at Ipava Avenue and County Road 50 for future right of way. As a result of the deeper study, the county also agreed to expand its roundabout construction project at 185th Street and Ipava Avenue to include adding a right turn lane at Jaguar Avenue, off County Road 50, the neighborhood’s only open access point.
A man diving into a lake on a hot summer day is a typical sight in northern Minnesota, but Eric Young’s swim on July 6 was unlike any other. The Eagan native and Rosemount High School graduate swam the 6-mile length of the Lake Belle Taine and raised $7,200 for Parkinson’s disease in honor of his late mother. Family and supporters cheered Young on as he crossed the length of the lake. Friends followed along in a canoe with water and snacks throughout the 3 hour and 55 minute swim. Young says the last few miles were the hardest as his shoulders felt the fatigue. “Whenever I felt tired or beat up, I just thought about how tough my mom was,” Young said. “I knew she was with me the whole time.” Young’s mother, Barbara Vandergraft, died in December. She had lived with the disease for 37 years. “I think she survived so long because of her stubbornness and fighting attitude,” Young said. “She was strong-willed, tough both mentally and physically.” When his mother was diagnosed at the age of 41, the 13-year-old Young did not understand the severity of the disease. “I had never heard of it and she seemed healthy,” Young said. “But in a few years I noticed her develop issues with walking.” The disease progressed slowly, affecting Vandergraft’s balance and muscle control, though she stayed out of her walker and wheelchair as long as she could, Young said. Parkinson’s is a chronic neurological disease. As many as 1 million Americans are currently living with it and 60,000 are diagnosed each year. There is no cure.
Eric Young raised $7,200 for Parkinson’s disease research by swimming the 6-mile length of Lake Belle Taine in honor of his late mother Barbara Vandergraft on July 6. Vandergraft lived with the degenerative neurological disease for 37 years before her death in December. She and Young spent many summers at their cabin on Lake Belle Taine near Nevis, Minn. (Photo submitted) “Once you have it, it takes away everything from you,” Young said. Parkinson’s disease affects the ability to see, talk, eat, walk, and can lead to dementia similar to that of Alzheimer’s disease. Vandergraft developed all of the disease’s major symptoms, though she didn’t let them get her down. “She was my hero,” Young said. When his mother’s health was declining last summer, Young decided he needed to do something. “I wanted to honor my mom and no one had ever swum the distance of the lake before,” Young said. Though he admits to hating swimming, Young, a seasoned triathlete, began training last November. He also started fundraising through the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, which was received with overwhelming generosity by friends and family. Young graduated from Rosemount High School in 1990. The Delta Airlines manager now lives in Atlanta, though he returned to his home state to swim in a special place – Lake Belle Taine near

Nevis, Minn., where his great-grandfather built their family cabin in 1902. The family spent many summers at the lake cabin over the years. Young felt it was important to raise money for Parkinson’s research. He also wanted to raise awareness of the disease, which is often overshadowed by more prevalent diseases. “I think Parkinson’s gets less attention than other diseases because people can survive with it for a while,” Young said. “People aren’t that familiar with it.” All of the $7,200 raised by Young is going to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation. With the swim accomplished, Young looks ahead to future years of fundraising and says he wants to create a yearly fundraiser in his mother’s name but isn’t quite sure what that will be. Donations are still being accepted at Young’s fundraiser page at http:// support.pdf.org/ericyoungswim. Email Kristina Ericksen at kristina.ericksen@ecm-inc. com.

Opinion Key to making Minnesota safer: Call 911 by Don Heinzman SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
When Minnesota Commissioner of Public Safety Ramona Dohman was asked her No. 1 wish to make Minnesota safer, she quickly answered: Call 911 right away when you see anything or anyone suspicious, and call at any hour of any day. Police chiefs in our suburban communities agree. Don’t hesitate to call when you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood. They’d rather have the call and check it out than learn about a crime the next day. Many burglaries in the Twin Cities area communities have been solved because of “tips” to local police departments. When these chiefs speak to the public, they preach the need to follow the saying “If you see something, say something,” a campaign being waged by Homeland
Sun Thisweek Columnist
Don Heinzman Security to raise public awareness of terrorism and suspected terrorists. So far in our area, tips have not led to suspected terrorists. A check with local police chiefs, however, reveals crimes, particularly daytime burglaries, have been solved thanks to tips from the public. Edina Police Chief Jeff Long recalled when someone saw a teen loitering in a neighborhood called 911 and the teen turned out to be a burglar. In Elk River, Police Chief Brad Rolfe said a woman got up in the middle of the night, looked out her window and saw a
man peering in the window of another townhome. Police responded and, thanks to a footprint that matched the shoes the guy was wearing, eventually eight burglaries were solved. Police Chief Mike Risvold of Wayzata recalled a retailer who noticed a suspicious vehicle and on checking it out, police were able to identify and charge a burglar. Sometimes people see things and don’t want to get involved or don’t think it’s important. For instance, Rohlf wishes a woman had called in the middle of the night when she saw someone pushing a snowmobile trailer down the street. The next day she learned about a theft of the trailer from a house near hers. That thief was never caught. Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts has an amazing network of 700 block captains watching for anyone suspicious. Four hundred neighborhood groups are organized to keep their city safe. Now
Potts is trying to organize the 2,000 businesses in the city to act when they see anyone doing strange things. Like other chiefs, Potts recalled a tip the police got, resulting in clearing up a number of burglaries. Long said sometimes we make it easy for burglars by leaving car doors unlocked. He said 80 percent of thefts are from unlocked vehicles. How will you know when to call police? You’ll know in “your gut” and from experience when there’s suspicious activity. And like the slogan says, “If you see something, say something.” You, too, could be a crime solver. Don Heinzman is a columnist for ECM Publishers and a member of the ECM Editorial Board.

Encouraging but limited view of charter public school progress by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Families may be interested in a new national report about charter and district public schools. Whether they have students attending Paideia Academy in Apple Valley, STEP in Inver Grove Heights, or a district, private or parochial school, the report contains encouraging information. However, the study also has important limitations. This is the second major national report done by the Center for Research on Educational Options at Stanford University. The first was in 2009. This year’s report covers public schools in Minnesota, the District of Columbia, 26 states and New York City, which researchers “treated separately as the city differs dramatically from the rest of the state.” CREDO says that 95 percent of the nation’s charter public school students live in these states and districts. The report focuses exclusively on gains in statewide reading and math scores – important but not the only important ways to judge students and schools. CREDO found: • Overall, gains since 2009 in reading and math. • Larger increases in scores for African
Sun Thisweek Columnist
Joe Nathan American, Hispanic, English language learners and students from low-income families. • Gains partly because some lowperforming schools were closed and new schools opened, plus improvements in some existing schools. CREDO’s researchers recommended closing more low-performing schools and studying “what plans, what models, what personnel attributes and what internal systems provide the appropriate signals that lead to high performing schools.” (The report is at http://credo. stanford.edu.) So CREDO’s report shows that some charters are helping close achievement gaps. That’s encouraging. What are the report’s limitations? First, responding to a question I asked, CREDO research manager Devora Davos acknowledged that the study included “only a very few high school
students in Minnesota and only for reading, because it is tested in grade 10.” This information should have been in the report. Second, what’s important about schools? Most people think about several factors, such as program, attendance, safety and, in secondary schools, graduation rates. Bob Wedl, former Minnesota commissioner of education, and I agree that it’s also valuable to know what percentages of a school’s students earn college credits and attend some form of one-, two- or four-year post-secondary program. CREDO’s report covers none of those issues. The report also continues an unfortunate tendency of some researchers, advocates and critics of district and charter public school: It tries to compare dramatically different schools. For example, Minnesota has district and charter public schools that are arts-focused; Montessori; American Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Hmong, Russian and Spanish immersion; classical; International Baccalaureate; project-based; online; and “second chance.” Can we compare gas mileage of leased and rented cars? No, it’s meaningless because cars in both categories vary widely.
The same applies to district and charters. We should be learning from district and charters serving similar populations whose students make significant progress – and not just on tests. Tom Watkins, former Michigan State superintendent of public instruction wrote: “Too much of the education debate is traditional school versus charter school ... Political rhetoric has never educated a single child. ... We need to get to the point that the only adjective that matters before the word school is quality.” Tony Simmons, co-director of High School for Recording Arts, an awardwinning Minnesota charter, criticized “this false debate of charters vs. district schools. Each should be used to inform the other regarding best practices and move more toward cooperation and collaboration. ... The question any family or student should have in choosing a school is whether a given school, charter or district is a good choice for their needs and expectations.” Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota public school teacher, directs the Center for School Change. Reactions welcome, joe@ centerforschoolchange.org. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.
Letters ECM editorial is right
the largest agribusinesses in this country. Both sides of the aisle lament this corporate welfare without effect. Why? Once again, the influence of money in politics is clear. Highly paid lobbyists, many former legislators, spend numerous hours on Capitol Hill courting former colleagues to retain programs their clients love. Further, some of these agribusinesses pay little or no taxes. A “wag of the finger” goes to my congressman. He may be silent on the issue, but his silence speaks volumes. This has been consistent for U.S. Rep. John Kline: Hear no evil, neither see nor speak any (unless it’s about ObamaCare). The poor are staring at a bleak future, while the largest of our corporations gather more welfare. Apparently for the congressman, there’s nothing wrong with that, judging by his silence. We should expect more, and we’ll demand more at the ballot box.
To the editor: Congratulations to ECM Publishers for the editorial titled, “Nation’s poor will suffer deeply from food stamp cuts.” I’ve often skimmed lead editorials, since they didn’t seem to want to rock the boat, but not this time. The editorial is right: We miss the plight of the poor who will suffer these cuts, particularly contrasted with middle class decisions to vacation at the Wisconsin Dells instead of Disney World. It is very hard for most of us to truly grasp the meaning of hunger, especially a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that provides less than $5 per day per person in food stamp support. That’s approximately a large latte and two candy bars. The other side of the Farm Bill was not addressed, which I feel is a major issue. While $20 billion in cuts are being proposed to the SNAP program, $920 billion re- RON COMMINS mained in farm subsidies. Eagan The vast majority go to

Furthermore, the commissioner then recites a second survey where 66 percent of the respondents supported “trail networks for hiking, biking and skiing” as if further evidence that the respondents wanted their hiking, biking and skiing trails to be asphalt. Steak dinner? This is more like: Where’s the beef ? How were these dots connected? This has been a public relations fiasco for the planners. I’ve seen many letters opposed to Lebanon’s paving and few in support other than the commissioner, who has been quoted often on the topic. If they really wish to proceed with these park modifications without appearing to be railroading some unpopular master plan, they would be wise to reopen the design process and allow further hearings, input and education. Nobody wants this beautiful park to become a maze of asphalt. I’m sure that includes Commissioner Egan. The problem is each little bit of development establishes the baseline for the next. First a small loop, now just a “few” miles. Lights? Kiosks? The future will expand it from there. Once developed it never reverts. And it is so rare to have such undeveloped wilderness to experience this close to home. The motto says it all: “Dakota County Parks – Forever Wild! … but forever paved? Please, keep it as advertised.
To the editor: The county commissioner’s letter in the July 12 issue, “Lebanon Hills survey explained,” unfortunately explained very little. Commissioner Tom Egan’s stated refusal to “idly sit by” while citizens mention his park system’s own survey results and his steak dinner analogy have only served to reduce the level of logic in this public discussion. The commissioner argues that just because only one-third responded “in support of paved trails” it is not reasonable to conclude the remaining two-thirds as being “opposed” to asphalting. OK, then, we’ll restate what is fact: From the survey’s results, twothirds of the respondents did not in any way indicate being “in support” of paving trails. Any support for paving he feels is within this DAVID segment is imaginary until SCOTT substantiated. Eagan
Let’s talk about the atmosphere To the editor: I am in complete agreement with the July 5 letter writer’s call for “features in these newspapers” on the atmosphere. Let’s have a discussion on how we are apparently back to 400 ppm of carbon in the atmosphere, last seen “some millions of years in the past.” Perhaps the same natural cause then is the natural cause now. Let’s discuss how the operative phrase has changed from “global warming” to “climate change.” Nice trick. One could at least debate the cause of short term global warming, but what’s the point of discussing “climate change”? Certainly it’s either getting warmer or cooler. I’ll concede that point. But we’re talking about cycles in the 10s and 100s of millions of years. Earth has gone through numerous ice ages. In fact we are in the midst of the most current one. The earth has cooled and warmed over the past few 100,000 years. Even the most ardent environmental extremist would have a tough time blaming that on human intervention.

Burnsville man sentenced to 20 years for Ponzi scheme A 75-year-old Burnsville man was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison in connection with the multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Trevor Cook. Patrick Kiley was sentenced in U.S. District Court on 12 counts of wire and mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and two counts of money laundering, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota. Because the federal criminal justice system has no parole, Kiley will spend virtually his entire sentence behind bars. Kiley and his co-defendants, who have been already sentenced, have been ordered to pay $155.36 million in restitution to the victims of their fraud scheme, which generated $194 million from investors. Kiley was convicted on June 12, 2012, after a nearly two-month trial. On Jan. 3, Jason Bo-Alan Beckman, 43, of Plymouth, was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison on 17 counts of wire and mail fraud, two counts of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, four counts of money laundering, two counts of filing a
false tax return and one count of tax evasion. Gerald Joseph Durand, 62, of Faribault, was sentenced to 20 years on 12 counts of wire and mail fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, two counts of money laundering, two counts of concealing a material fact from the United States and three counts of filing a false tax return. Christopher Pettengill, 56, of Plymouth, was sentenced to 90 months on one count of securities fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of money laundering. Evidence presented at trial proved that between 2005 and November 2009, the defendants, along with Cook, defrauded investors by soliciting them to invest money in a foreign currency trading program that they alleged would earn a double-digit rate of return, typically between 10.5 and 12 percent annually, with little or no risk. They also claimed investor assets would be held in a segregated account and could be withdrawn at any time. Those representations were false. The defendants and Cook made the investment offers through entities known as Universal
Brokerage Services or bearing the acronym UBS. The UBS entities had no legitimate affiliation to the global provider of financial services UBS, AG. Cook operated the currency program through various foreign currency trading firms, including but not limited to one in Chicago and another in Switzerland. To induce investors, the defendants and Cook, directly or through others, made false representations regarding the performance, safety, and liquidity of the currency program. They also omitted material information concerning their own backgrounds and qualifications as well as the backgrounds and qualifications of those working for them. Once investments were made, some investors received UBS account statements that indicated the currency program was performing as promised, while others received checks for “returns on their investments.” Both the statements and checks, however, were actually produced by the co-conspirators, the purpose being to lull investors or encourage them to make additional investments. At the same time,
most investors received nothing from the true custodians of their funds. Although some investment funds were invested in foreign currency trading, most of that trading was high-risk, often resulting in significant losses, none of which was disclosed to investors. Moreover, the co-conspirators concealed that the currency trading firm in Switzerland was in dire financial condition and, instead, continued to solicit investor assets to be sent to the firm. Co-conspirators also concealed from investors their own concerns about Cook’s operation of the currency program and alleged illegalities surrounding it. In 2007, when UBS, AG filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Cook, Durand, Kiley, and others, the defendants began operating their scheme under other names, including those identified by the terms “Oxford” and “Universal Brokerage FX.” They then continued to solicit investors for the currency program, using telemarketing, media spots and seminars in which they repeated the false representations. Kiley, a former Christian radio host who had
Lakeville man charged with felony drug crime by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Charles Edward Erdmann, 40, of Lakeville, has been jailed and charged with a felony controlled substance crime after the Dakota County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at his home July 9. Task Force agents allegedly found more than 90 grams of methamphetamine and 85 pills in his bedroom. According to the July 11 Dakota County criminal complaint, 47 of the pills tested as Alprazolam (also known as Xanax), a Schedule IV controlled substance, and 38 of them were identified as MDMA – also known as “ecstasy” – a Schedule I controlled substance that acts
as both a stimulant and a psychedelic. In a nightstand, agents located a clear baggie of methamphetamine that weighed .63 Charles Edward grams, and in a Erdmann purse belonging to Lisa Susan Decker, who with her two children were present in the home when the Task Force entered, agents found 3.21 grams of methamphetamine, according to the complaint. Task Force agents reportedly found Erdmann in a locked bathroom flushing the toilet when they
arrived at the home. Decker allegedly told agents that she has suspected Erdmann of dealing drugs, did not know the amount of drugs Erdmann kept at their residence and that any drugs found belonged to Erdmann. According to Dakota County, Erdmann is also being held for Pierce County, Wis., on felony fugitive from justice charges in connection with a felony charge of first-degree manufacture of methamphetamine. A pretrial court hearing is set for Aug. 6 in Hastings. Laura Adelmann is at email@example.com.
a show called “Follow the Money,” solicited investors for the scam through his radio talk show, which was carried on more than 200 stations across the country. On those programs, he regularly warned listeners to avoid financial ruin by giving their life savings to his company for investment. Between 2005 and July 2009, the defendants, Cook, and others secured approximately $194 million in investments for the currency program. Of that amount, only about $109 million was actually sent to currency trading firms. About $52 million was paid to investors in the form of lulling payments, and approximately $30 million was diverted to fund the business and
personal expenses of the defendants, Cook, and others. In August of 2010, Cook was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for his role in the scam. On July 18, 2011, Jon Jason Greco pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements to federal agents, specifically lying about assets he had concealed in the scam. He was sentenced to 10 months. Proceeds from the Cook fraud scheme are the subject of an ongoing investigation and recovery efforts led by the law firm Carlson, Caspers, Vandenburg, and Lindquist, through a previous appointment by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Michael Davis.

Top Burnsville student, athlete, friend remembered Taylor Ziebol, 19, killed in Kansas car crash by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A nearly 20-year age difference didn’t keep Taylor Ziebol and Jen Waller McDevitt from becoming close friends. Waller McDevitt was Taylor’s 11thgrade English teacher at Burnsville High School. Last summer, after Taylor had graduated and before she set out for Ripon College in Wisconsin, the pair pounded pavement together, training for a half marathon. “So we had lots of time together to just pour out our hearts,” Waller McDevitt said. “She wasn’t like other teenagers. She was very mature, very understanding, compassionate.” Taylor, who was staying with Waller McDevitt’s family this summer, left their Burnsville home at around 7:30 p.m. July 10, headed for El Paso, Texas, with her two younger siblings to visit their grandparents. Taylor, 19, was killed the next morning, after the family’s Nissan Murano she was driving crossed the center line and struck a semi truck head on near Dodge City, Kan. The crash occurred at about 7 a.m. on U.S. Highway 54. Taylor died a short time later at Western Plains Regional Hospital. Her siblings are recovering from their injuries. Shannon Ziebold, 17, is doing “great” after having had her appendix and some of her intestines removed, Waller McDevitt said Monday. She said Adam Ziebold, 15, had more extensive internal injuries and was still under sedation. The semi truck driver, 56-year-old Raymond Noriega of California, was also hospitalized, the Kansas State Patrol reported. The Ziebols had stopped at a McDonald’s for a “much-needed caffeine break” at about 5 a.m., Waller McDevitt said. “The semi driver saw (the Ziebol vehicle) and veered out of his way as much as he could, which is what they say saved Adam and Shannon’s life,” she said. Taylor Ziebol was a high achiever in the classroom and on the soccer field, where she started 15 of 18 games as a midfielder for the Ripon Red Hawks in her freshman year.
Taylor Ziebol, right, was photographed with her siblings, Shannon and Adam, before they set out on their road trip to El Paso, Texas. (Photo submitted) “We’re heartbroken,” Ripon head women’s soccer coach Sam Schroeder said in a statement on the team website. “Taylor epitomized what it means to be a good teammate and a good person. She set an example for us all every single day. We will miss Taylor’s limitless energy, determined spirit, and ever-positive outlook.” She had strong personal connections with many educators in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191, all the way back to her days at Gideon Pond Elementary, Waller McDevitt said.
at Nicollet Junior High, which she had attended, and did volunteer work in the office. Taylor exuded “positive energy wherever she went, and whatever she had going on in her life, she always came in with that great attitude,” Nicollet Principal Renee Brandner said. She babysat for several of her teachers and visited her old schools on breaks from college. She sent Brandner an email this winter saying she was switching majors to secondary education and wanted to teach science. “I worked closely with her,” the principal said. “She was so bright and capable.” Taylor, whose father died when she was in second grade, often reached out to teachers she was close to during difficult times, Waller McDevitt said. She has stayed with McDevitts a number of times and babysat their children, 9-year-old twins Arelys and Keegan and 4-year-old Connor. “As her aunt said, it took a village to raise Taylor,” Waller McDevitt said fondly. Taylor’s father, Michael, died when she was in second grade. She and her siblings were going to visit his parents when the crash occurred. Taylor was involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes and active in her church, Prince of Peace in Burnsville. She worked at the Target store in Lakeville during high school and on breaks from college. Her mother and stepfather, Lesa and James Hess, live in Burnsville with Shannon and Adam. Lesa had recently bought the Nissan Murano for the kids to use, Waller McDevitt said. “I think what’s so hard for everybody to understand is how somebody so alive cannot be here,” she said. “And she had this incessant love for her family. She and her mom were incredibly close. She took care of her brother and sister.” The Ziebol Family Memorial Fund has been established through Wells Fargo Bank. Checks should be made out to “Ziebol Family” and can be mailed to or dropped off at any Wells Fargo office.
“Taylor and I formed an instant bond when she was in my 11th-grade class,” said Waller McDevitt, whose husband, David, is a Burnsville High social studies teacher. “She would stay after school with me and just want to talk. That’s what Taylor did. She was close to many teachers in our school district.” She took post-secondary classes for two years, her senior year at Normandale John Gessner can be Community College.

Alcohol-related charges filed in 2012 Burnsville scooter death 18-year-old Brett Raley, Burnsville, killed in 2012 by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Criminal charges have been filed in the death of Brett Raley, 14 months after the 18-year-old Burnsville man was killed in an early-morning motor scooter crash in Savage. An friend of Raley’s, Thomas James Spires of Burnsville, was charged this month with providing liquor to a minor, a gross misdemeanor, and two counts of aiding and abetting driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. Authorities say Spires, 25, was seated behind Raley when Raley drove the motor scooter into a 6-foot-tall wooden fence near Lynn Avenue and 125th Street on May 8, 2012. Police were called to the scene at 2:15 a.m. Raley, pronounced dead at the scene 33 minutes later, had a blood-alcohol concentration of .11. The legal limit for driving in Minnesota is .08. Spires admitted to furnishing the alcohol after first denying that he knew Raley was under the influence or had been drinking, according to the criminal complaint. The alcohol-related charges come months after the Scott County Attorney’s Office decided against felony

charges against Spires. They represent a measure of justice for Raley’s family members, who, according to interviews in the Savage Pacer newspaper, believe Spires was driving at the time of the crash and have questioned why more serious charges weren’t filed. “I was so happy I was shaking,” Raley’s mother, Lisa, told the Pacer last week. “I was in tears.” Attempts by Sun Thisweek to contact Lisa Raley for comment were unsuccessful. Scott County Attorney Pat Ciliberto said his office viewed the case through “a different set of eyes” in filing the alcohol-related charges. “If somebody says something that leads us to look at something else in a case, we do that,” Ciliberto said. “We do that as a matter of course to see if we missed something. We decided there’s probable cause to charge him as we did.” Savage police forwarded their investigation to the county attorney’s office last July, and the office communicated in early September that Spires wouldn’t be charged criminally, according to the Pacer. Ciliberto said prosecutors were originally concerned with whether the case warranted felony charges. “But when we first looked at it, we did not have any felony charges that we felt there was probably cause to bring,” he told Sun Thisweek. “At first we didn’t even know who was driving.”
An investigation has affirmed it was Raley, Ciliberto said. According to the criminal complaint, a witness, Andrea Krueger, came upon the accident scene, “discovered that no one had called 911,” and called it herself. She told police she spoke with Spires, “who told her he had been on the back of the scooter with the decedent,” the complaint said. She said Spires told her that both he and Raley had been drinking and that Raley was supposed to have been his “sober cab.” Spires told police he’d allowed Raley to drive the scooter, which was registered to Spires’ mother, even though he knew Raley didn’t have a driver’s license, the complaint said. After denying knowing Raley had been drinking, Spires then admitted he had bought a bottle of Jagermeister liquor on May 7, and that he, Raley and another male friend drank together in Hidden Valley Park in Savage. “This drinking occurred prior to the accident,” the complaint said. The scooter crash took out an 8-foot section of fence. Found lying in a resident’s yard, Raley died from a ruptured artery at the base of his neck and spinal column, the Pacer reported.

Incentives built into new Burnsville Performing Arts Center pact More revenue means higher fee for VenuWorks by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
The firm managing the Burnsville Performing Arts Center is taking a pay cut â€” but with new performance incentives, that could more than make up the loss. A new contract between the city and facility manager VenuWorks cuts the original base management fee from $120,000 per year to $100,000. But VenuWorks could make up to $165,000 â€” $30,000 more than its current fee â€” in 2014 and 2015 if it boosts the centerâ€™s gross revenue by at least 9 percent. Thatâ€™s a feasible target for the next two years, though sustaining 9 percent revenue growth could prove tough in later years, city officials said. The City Council unanimously approved the contract with Iowa-based VenuWorks July 16. The contract is for three years, with two optional oneyear extensions. VenuWorks has managed the $20 million center
under a five-year contract since it opened in January 2009. In April the council chose to stick with the company after considering it alongside a competitor, LHR Hospitality Management, which also submitted a management proposal. The new contract authorizes creation of performance measures that include raising attendance, reducing the number of â€œdark daysâ€? with no booked events and guaranteeing customer service and satisfaction. And â€œcontinuous monitoringâ€? of the centerâ€™s city-subsidized operating losses â€œwill be an ongoing component for measurement of success for the management contract,â€? said a city staff report. The performance measures arenâ€™t contractual terms, but yardsticks by which to judge VenuWorks in areas city officials are keen to improve. Sal Mondelli, chair of the centerâ€™s citizen advisory commission, likened the measures to â€œpass-failâ€? grades when the contract is up for renewal. The new contract takes a â€œmore balanced approachâ€? than the origi-
nal, which was heavier on guarantees for VenuWorks and didnâ€™t fully spell out what the company needed to deliver for its management fee, said Mondelli, who served on the cityâ€™s negotiating team. Both the old and new contracts include 3 percent annual increases in the base fee. VenuWorks is being paid $135,040 this year, from the original base of $120,000. The company is also paid about $15,000 for corporate travel and employee bonuses. Under the new contract, those costs will come out of the companyâ€™s incentive bonuses. If the center hits 5 percent gross revenue growth in a calendar year, VenuWorks will be paid an incentive fee equaling 3 percent of the yearâ€™s total revenue. A 9 percent bump in gross revenue would add another 1 percent in total revenue for VenuWorks. VenuWorks would hit the top incentive in 2014 by raising gross revenue to $1.2 million, about $100,000 more than expected in 2013. If it sustained 9 percent growth through 2018, gross revenue would be
$1.7 million, and the companyâ€™s fee would rise to $175,000. Council Member Dan Kealey said he likes the incentives, which the council had asked for, but they may set the bar too low. Gross revenue rose 13 percent in 2012, is budgeted to do the same this year and is ahead of budget for the year, said Kelly Strey, the cityâ€™s financial accounting director. Against that kind of performance, an incentive bonus at 9 percent growth looks like â€œsandbagging,â€? Kealey said. The 5 and 9 percent growth figures are hittable in the next two years, but could be a â€œstretchâ€? beyond that, City Manager Heather Johnston said. She noted that the Mall of America is considering building a competing arts center larger than Burnsvilleâ€™s (which has a 1,000seat main theater), which could dampen revenue growth. By reducing dark days, VenuWorks would also reduce future growth potential, Kealey acknowledged.
â€˜Bring us some concertsâ€™ Advisory
members and VenuWorks officials have yet to work out details of the performance measures. At Kealeyâ€™s urging, the council added two more, including a call for more concerts. Many citizens agree with him there havenâ€™t been enough, he said. â€œBring us some concerts,â€? Kealey said. â€œMusic in that venue is a phenomenal experience. Itâ€™s a phenomenal audio experience. Weâ€™re not capitalizing on that,â€? Kealey said, describing himself as a musician since fourth grade. The council also agreed to call on VenuWorks to find $20,000 in additional outside sponsorships for the centerâ€™s â€œangelâ€? fund. Mixing a $50,000 city loan and private investments, including a VenuWorks contribution, the fund allows the company to buy its own shows for an annual performance series. The center does most of its business as a rental house. That goal doesnâ€™t negate a contract term requiring VenuWorks to contribute up to $10,000 annually to maintain an angel fund balance of at least $80,000.

The center suffered steep losses in its first two years but rebounded to hit preopening forecasts of annual operating losses of $350,000 or less. Operating losses totaled $285,747 in 2012, compared with $304,853 in 2011, according to the city. â€œThe Performing Arts Center, I believe, has really turned a corner,â€? said Council Member Suzanne Nguyen, council liaison to the advisory commission. She called the new contract â€œfair for both sides.â€? Mayor Elizabeth Kautz told VenuWorks officials there were â€œbumps in the road with the first selectionâ€? of an arts center manager, Wolf Larson. The center opened during a severe recession and suffered customer-service complaints, she said. But the city and VenuWorks worked together on the problems, Kautz said. â€œIt hasnâ€™t been a smooth journey, but we all stuck together,â€? she said.

Color Me Therapy
Eagan nonprofit Art for Everyone provides art therapy to all ages by Sarah Allen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
People of all ages are welcome to get their hands dirty in the name of art therapy at a new nonprofit called Art for Everyone. Julie Schroeder, owner of Color Me Mine in Eagan, created the nonprofit earlier this year to provide painting workshops and summer camps free of charge. It offers people a chance to take art relaxation and therapy into their own hands at Schroeder’s local painting and pottery studio. During the school year, Color Me Mine provides after-school ceramics and clay classes for children in School District 196 and Oakridge Elementary. Every Tuesday and Thursday, children can attend the classes and choose to paint one of 300 different premade ceramics. Each class has a different theme, including movies “Toy Sto-
ry” and “Finding Nemo.” As much as 41 percent of kids that Schroeder works with are under the poverty line. According to Schroeder, many children struggle to pay for the classes. With workshops running anywhere from $30 to $60 and summer camps running at $45, Schroeder hopes that her nonprofit can provide scholarships to cover the charge for students in need. She also aims to provide art therapy for adults who could benefit from the programs. Schroeder teaches a weekly class to members of Breaking Free, a St. Paul-based nonprofit that provides housing and services for survivors of sex trafficking. Women from Breaking Free attend painting and jewelrymaking classes through the organizations’s paid internship and job skills program. Art therapy techniques give these women a
chance to cope with their personal anxieties. Pieces created by the women are sold in a survivor-made boutique, which generates funding for Breaking Free’s programs. The boutique internship program also provides the women a source of income, which will help them transition into the workforce when exiting the program. “Julie’s passion for and vision of providing access to Art for Everyone is evident the instant you meet her,” said Hannah Theisen, an event coordinator at Breaking Free. “It has been such a joy to work with Julie and to watch the women in Breaking Free’s boutique program blossom in both their confidence and artistic skill.” Schroeder said she hopes that Art for Everyone can provide scholarships for the women from Breaking Free and others like them. Schroeder also aspires
Newly formed Tea Party group looks to Apple Valley as HQ South Metro Tea Party plans to hold meetings at Bogart’s Place by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
A newly formed Tea Party group is looking to call Apple Valley home. Formed earlier this summer, the South Metro Tea Party held its first meeting June 26 at Stephano’s restaurant in Burnsville. Because of the unexpectedly high turnout at that first meeting, the group plans to hold its future meetings at Bogart’s Place in Apple Valley to accommodate the crowd. “We were expecting 30 to 50 people, and over 150 people showed up,” said Leslie Henschel, one of the South Metro Tea Party’s several organizers.
“We had people standing, we had people sitting on the floor – it was pretty amazing.” The group formed with the help of the Tea Party Minnesota PAC, according to Tricia Fischer, another of the group’s organizers. It’s one of two metro-area Tea Party groups to form recently – the East Metro Tea Party, based in Lake Elmo, began meeting in April. “The main goal of our Tea Party is to educate with facts,” Fischer said. “Like-minded people can socialize and learn how to be an active voice in our communities. The meetings are open to all – Republican, Democrat, Independent and other.”
The South Metro Tea Party’s next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 23, at Bogart’s Place, 14917 Garrett Ave. Dinner and social hour runs from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by the meeting at 7 p.m. The guest speaker is state Rep. Cindy Pugh, R-Chanhassen. There’s no cost to attend and guests don’t need to register. The group plans to hold its regular meetings at Bogart’s the fourth Tuesday of each month. The South Metro Tea Party is on the Web at Facebook.com/SouthMetroTeaParty.
to take on new challenges this fall by bringing art therapy to children’s hospitals. Her idea has quickly sparked volunteer interest. “So many people already want to volunteer,” Schroeder said. “A lot of the children are in the hospital long-term, so they would get their piece back and it would be free of charge.” While families are already under financial stress, Schroeder wants to provide a free outlet for their kids to relax and have fun. The American Art Therapy Association’s website states that creating art can increase awareness of self and others and help people to cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences. Although she is not a specialist herself, Schroeder sees the effects of art therapy on children and adults alike. “I see people are
stressed and kids are wound up. When they come in to paint, it is so obvious to see the relaxation that comes from it,” she said. Schroeder sees art therapy as taking focus away from the busy surrounding world to a single calming task. She also believes that art is a child’s way of learning and expressing himself. Over the past few years, school budgets cuts have greatly reduced art programs for children. Schroeder views her painting classes as a chance for young people to fulfill their diminished creative outlets. “Art has been cut in a lot of schools. Many parents are struggling and can’t afford to pick up art supplies,” Schroeder said. Art for Everyone scholarships could provide lowincome families a chance to give their children artistic experiences. Schroeder’s inspiration
for creating Art for Everyone stems from her passion to support the community. Schroeder is active in her church and known at the local food shelf. She created Food Shelf Wednesdays at Color Me Mine, for which attendees can bring in food shelf donations to receive a half-price studio fee. Currently, the nonprofit has been slow to take off. Schroeder is seeking help from the community through volunteer work. Volunteers can help with workshops, at summer camps or at children’s hospitals for one to two hours per week. Schroeder is also seeking donations from the community to support Art for Everyone. Interested volunteers and donors can visit www.artforevery1. org. Email Sarah Allen email@example.com.

Fitch said they have been “chasing some mold issues around” this year, and have performed mitigation work in about five offices. “Typically, it’s pulling off the wallpaper,” he said. “We might have to demo some of the sheetrock, pull carpet out.” This year’s wet weather has contributed to the building’s water problems. Fitch said water from rainfalls is not draining, but building up and collecting around the building’s foundation, creating pressure that drives the water inside. Board Member Jim Skelly said $150,000 is a lot of money to spend on a district building and noted some of the building’s shortcomings, but said if the work was not done, the district’s asset would become useless. Anderson agreed. “From a functionality standpoint, from a working environment standpoint, these are things we have to correct in order for people to function,” he said. Proposed funding sources for the mitigation efforts include the district’s health and safety levy and alternative facilities bonding. Anderson also said the district has had many projects come in under budget, and he projects there will be more than $177,000 in fund balance at the end of the 2013-14 school year that could be used for the work. Board members cited concerns about the situation and indicated they would approve the recommendation. “The problem with delaying this work is it’s just going to cause a lot more problems down the road,” said Board Chair Roz Peterson, a commercial real estate agent. “Water is probably the most destructive thing that can happen to a building.”

An office previously occupied by Douglas Ninow, former student information specialist, has been closed, and a large green “Mr. Yuck” sign warns visitors to keep out. Carpet, sheetrock, some ceiling tiles and insulation were removed from Ninow’s former office. Furniture is piled up and a fan was recently used to promote drying. District Communications Director Linda Swanson said mold was found in some of the offices and steps have been taken to address it. She said ceiling tiles have regularly been replaced due to water damage throughout the building, which was built in 1985. The problem has also affected some of the upper level offices, including

Residential construction of single-family homes is growing throughout Dakota County, Home builders are working hard to keep up with demand for single-family units in including work at Cobblestone Lake in Apple Valley. (Photo by Sarah Allen) Dakota County. (Photo by Sarah Allen) RECOVERY, from 1A struction for the state, a 7 percent increase for the metro area, and 4,000 new construction jobs since May of last year. A major contributor to the sudden jump of employment is the end of a prolonged Minnesota winter. Gene Stimpson, owner of Gene’s Apple Valley Construction since 1982, said his small business took a hard hit from this year’s extended cold weather. “It’s been ridiculous,” he said. “It put us back a month and a half, maybe two months.” July’s sunny weather and the recent storm damage have increased Stimpson’s opportunities for work. “If you’re not working, you’re not trying,” Stimpson said. “There’s more work than we can do.” Residential construction workers are finding increased employment opportunities as the summer progresses.
Residential rise Recent statistics show that residential construction is racing to keep up with demand. The number of home building permits issued in the seven-county metro area are at a 12-month high, remaining ahead of every year since 2007, according to the Builders Association of the Twin Cities. At the same time, planned housing units in June are up by 64 percent since June 2012. Demand, interest and prices continue to rise, all positive signs for the residential construction community.
Nationwide, consumer confidence is up. A Mayflower survey found that 47 percent of those polled are more comfortable purchasing a home today than at any other time in the past five years. Pent-up demand is rising and buyers are itching to move. Dakota County is a home-building hot spot among area counties. Lakeville had the second highest building permits issued in the metro area and fourth in the state for June. As a city comprised of mostly of single-family homes, Lakeville is a high producer. With 20-25 new permits, Lakeville is constructing major housing developments including Spirit of Brandtjen Farms, Donnelly Farms and Country Joe Homes’ Crescent Ridge. Tami Erickson, Country Joe Homes sales and marketing coordinator, said Lakeville is filling with heritage-style homes. “Lakeville seems to have a lifestyle people want with parks, schools and walking paths,” Erickson said. Permits for singlefamily homes are up 60 percent for the year in the Twin Cities from 607 in 2012 to 980 in 2013, according to BATC. The typical buyers are families consisting of one spouse working full time and the other part time. They are seeking four bedrooms and flexible space for their growing families, according to Erickson. Other cities in Dakota County are supporting new residential construction, including work at
Cobblestone Lake in Apple Valley, Prestwick Place in Rosemount, Stonehaven in Eagan, Riverbend in Farmington and several more. With a steady increase in public demand, Country Joe Homes has noticed growing opportunities to build beyond Dakota County. Although the market is showing positive signs, an increase of national construction companies coming through the metro causes smaller builders, such as Country Joe Homes, to remain cautiously optimistic.
Labor shortage Despite expanding employment, both residential and commercial construction businesses are facing a labor shortage. The Great Recession left thousands of contractors without jobs, and they have yet to return to the market. According to the Department of Employment and Economic Development, in 2006, Dakota County had a total of 11,676 construction jobs. Years after the apex of the Great Recession, Dakota County was left with 7,599 construction jobs in 2012. A depleted job pool leaves local builders with fewer resources for quality work. Country Joe Homes hired a few different construction crews before finding the right ones. “We’ve hired a couple of framing crews but they are really hit and miss. They don’t always have the experience we need, and the same quality that we’re used to,” Erickson said.

Increased prices on materials have affected residential contractor hiring. “We have concerns because the price of land and materials have gone up a lot this year,” Erickson said. “Builders that have remained in business are happy to be working but they are having a hard time with staffing,” said Wendy Danks, director of marketing at BATC. “There are not as many contractors in the field as there used to be.” With Minnesota companies searching for skilled employees, neither residential nor commercial construction are where they stood a decade ago. Minnesota is down 33,600 construction jobs since its peak in 2006, according to Associated General Contractors of Minnesota. Minnesota construction topped at 132,000 jobs in February 2006, and is down 25 percent to 98,400 in May 2013. When asked if the residential construction sector will recover, Danks said: “In the residential area, probably not. We will add jobs, absolutely. But there was a bubble

Cruise night is date night for Mark and Jodi Hansen of Eureka Township, who took a break from their six children to enjoy a ride in their rare four-wheel-drive 1957 Chevrolet 3100 truck, purchased from Jodi’s uncle who built it from the ground up. Jodi was eager to join Mark in his love for classic cars as a way to grow together. “I’m a firm believer in being a part of what your spouse does,” Jodi said. “That’s why I learned to hunt.” She shot her first buck in 1993 when she was seven months pregnant with their first child. Mark has also adopted to Jodi’s interests: She taught him how to fly airplanes. (Photo by Laura Adelmann)
Tom Dotzler, of Burnsville, and Mike Cavanaugh, of Farmington, have been buddies since graduating from high school in 1981. Back then, Mike drove a 1969 Chevelle and Tom had a 1972 El Camino. After Mike crashed his Chevelle, Tom bought the Chevelle’s front end parts for his El Camino. After more than 30 years, they still share a love for “wrenching,” often helping each other fix their cars and find new classics together. They are pictured in front of Mike’s 1967 Chevelle, which he drove in the Pan-O-Prog Cruise Night. (Photo by Laura Adelmann)

Lakeville Police Chief Tom Vonhof selected this 1968 Pontiac GTO as his pick for the annual Chief’s Award, the last one he will give as he is retiring Oct. 1. Although Vonhof admitted a preference for “pony cars” like the Mustang, he said over the years he has tried to pick a variety of cars, including a Camero and a Barracuda. “I picked this one because this is a very sharp looking car,” Vonhof said. He said he was drawn to it because it is a convertible, but also appreciated its color. “I am partial to black and white cars,” Vonhof joked. The owner received the Chief’s Award plaque that resembles a license plate. (Photo by Laura Adelmann)
North Dakota State University junior Mike Hjermstad, a 2011 Lakeville North graduate, found his 1970 Challenger on eBay while he was still in high school. He and his father, Steve Hjermstad, drove down to Arkansas to haul it home, and Steve gave Mike how-to advice to fix it up. The Challenger had a little rust and needed some chrome polishing, but the biggest change Mike made was having it painted “plum crazy” purple to cover the “ugly yellow” color it was when he bought it. “I’ve wanted one since I was 4 or 5 years old,” Mike said. “I saw one way back when, and it’s always been my dream car.” (Photo by Laura Adelmann)
For the second year in a row, Steve Manninen and son Oliver, 9, (above and right) drove this dark green rare 1923 Oakland in the Pan-O-Prog Cruise Night. Steve’s late father, Dave Manninen, discovered the broken down frame of the car rusted in a field, purchased it for $300 and completely restored it. Dave, a wood shop teacher in St. Paul schools for 36 years, built and installed running boards and a hand-carved cherry wood dash board. Steve keeps an album of photos with the car that show its transformation. “He actually built three hot rods,” Steve said. “This is the second one, and it has the most meaning because it was the first one he built from the ground up.” Unlike some classic car owners, Steve drives the Oakland frequently, in part because his father would want it that way. “My dad was so into doing this,” Steve said. “He put almost 20,000 miles on it before he passed. It was built to be enjoyed and driven and that’s what we do wit it now. We take it out, cruise around.” (Photo by Laura Adelmann)

IPAVA, from 1A Stephanie Folven said she and her children once crossed Ipava Avenue and made it to the middle island on the road where heavy traffic kept them stuck, unable to cross. A truck driver narrowly missed hitting them, swerving away from them at the last second, she said. Several speakers said they have witnessed groups of Lifetime Fitness runners getting split up trying to cross Ipava Avenue, and residents said drivers in the area often speed and swear at pedestrians who try to cross the road. Although the area is residential, Ipava Avenue is classified as a major collector and carries high local traffic loads
MANAGER, from 1A He is not sure where he will earn his doctorate but said professionally he wants to end his career where it began: in the classroom. Anderson, who has a masterâ€™s of business administration, taught for the first decade of his career at three Minnesota colleges and in the 1990s developed and directed residential Nike Tennis Camps. He was drawn away from the classroom to oversee school district financial operations in New Prague, Elk River and at Dakota County Technical College before landing the same financial leadership position in Lakeville on Jan. 7. His tenure in Lakeville may have been short, but Snyder and School Board members, who reluctantly accepted his resignation at a July 16 special meeting, said his work has made a long-lasting impression on the district. â€œI appreciate everything youâ€™ve done for our district,â€? School Board Chair Roz Peterson told Anderson. â€œYou have saved us a ton of money. You were definitely here at the right time.â€? In an interview, Snyder said she is â€œvery sad that it isnâ€™t a longer-term relationshipâ€? with Anderson, describing him as a â€œteam playerâ€? and â€œa real asset to our team.â€? Snyder said Andersonâ€™s teaching career gave him a unique perspective, helpful in finance. â€œHe had seen a lot of the organization before moving into the financial side of school manage-
of 8,000 to 9,000 trips per day, said City Public Works Director Chris Petree. The intersection where the teen was struck, at Ipava Avenue and Ira Lane, does not have a painted crosswalk across the busy road, and parents asked for improved safety measures there. Some parents noted that Eastview is the districtâ€™s only elementary school without stop signs, and asked that the speed limit be reduced or the city install a crosswalk with flashing lights. Lakeville resident Tammy Field requested the city help advocate for a raised walkway over the road. Field compared walking across Ipava Avenue to â€œplaying Frogger,â€? the video game.
â€œSomeoneâ€™s going to get killed on Ipava,â€? she said in an interview. â€œWeâ€™re trying to get things changed before that happens.â€? City Council members expressed concern about the situation, noting that the construction work that has closed Dodd Boulevard/Highview Avenue could be adding to the problem. Field said the road has always been busy, regardless of construction work. Mayor Matt Little said the council will discuss the issue at a work session in August or September.
ment,â€? she said. â€œSo he understands the impact on learning. Thatâ€™s what he always had on his mind â€Ś what is best for students and where can we get the biggest bang for our buck. Those are his two great guiding principles.â€? She said Anderson â€œtook the bull by the hornsâ€? and renegotiated vendor contracts that saved the district hundreds of thousands of dollars, including a busing contract that alone cut $300,000 off the bill. Also a computer software author and programmer, Anderson developed a computer model School Board members heavily relied upon to make critical decisions regarding the recently determined levy question of $5.6 million and 2013-14 budget. Snyder said one of the projects she has assigned Anderson before he leaves is to add an online calculator to the districtâ€™s website so constituents can enter their property value to determine what the levy will add to their property tax bill. School Board Member Bob Erickson, Lakevilleâ€™s former city administrator, said Anderson gave â€œthe finest budget presentation Iâ€™ve ever witnessed in a public setting.â€? â€œIt was just remarkable,â€? he said. â€œI will never forget that.â€? At the special meeting, which had been previously planned and Andersonâ€™s resignation was added to the agenda, Anderson apologized for his unexpected departure and said he did not want to let anyone down. He said he had started a
doctorate program before, but put that â€œon hiatusâ€? and now the time feels right to return to working with students; he will also seek consulting work. â€œIf I knew I could only hire you for six months, I still would have kept you,â€? said Snyder, who previously worked as a superintendent in Wisconsin schools. â€œYou taught me a lot.â€? Anderson said Snyder and the districtâ€™s current leadership team is â€œexceptional,â€? adding the districtâ€™s strong educational reputation and Snyderâ€™s presence greatly influenced his decision to work in Lakeville. â€œIâ€™ve worked with some great leaders in my life, and Lisa was one reason I came to Lakeville,â€? he said. â€œSheâ€™s an amazing visionary.â€? Anderson, of Northfield, offered to help the district hire his replacement and act as a resource to that person if needed. Snyder said they had interviewed strong contenders for the position when Anderson was selected, and they will likely contact those candidates again.

Although he admitted to some nervousness about his decision to leave, Anderson said a recent backpacking trip helped him clarify the decision, and he turned in his resignation when he returned on July 15. â€œLife has its moments, and I kind of need to grasp a hold of it and move forward,â€? Anderson said. â€œI want to see where the next journey leads to.â€? Laura Adelmann is at laura. email@example.com.

Sports Gopher Classic teams gut out busy schedules Eagan Patriots win 90-team baseball tourney by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
This is the time of baseball season the Eagan Patriots refer to as “The Grind.” It’s as much a test of willpower as talent as Eagan’s American Legion team tackles a schedule that would have the Major League Baseball Players Association howling in protest. After an off day on Wednesday of last week, the Patriots played 10 games in the next six days, ending with a 2-1 victory over West St. Paul in the championship game of the Jim Hanus Gopher Classic tournament Tuesday in Minnetonka. Eagan went 8-1 in the 90-team tournament, which it won for the first time in the program’s history. When they were done with the Gopher Classic, the Patriots were scheduled to play Apple Valley on Wednesday and Lakeville South on Thursday in league play before heading to another tournament in Wayzata/ Plymouth this weekend, where they could have four games in three days.
Then there will be two days off before the substate playoffs begin July 24 in Dundas. So, how do you play that many games in that short a time without losing it mentally? “You can’t really look at the big picture,” said the Patriots’ Collin Olstad, who homered three times in two Gopher Classic games Saturday. “You have to pace yourself. You have to tell yourself, ‘One pitch at a time,’ no matter how hard it might be to do that.” On Monday, Eagan disposed of Edina 9-0 and two-time defending tournament champion Coon Rapids 7-3 in the playoff phase of the Gopher Classic. The schedule had been so grueling that even though the Patriots were done for the day shortly after 4 p.m., several players talked about wanting to go home and get some sleep. Eagan was 19-4 after defeating Moline, Ill., 7-0 and West St. Paul in its final two Gopher Classic games Tuesday. This week the Patriots were eighth in the state American Legion baseball poll,

Macura gets Gophers offer A few weeks ago, Richard Pitino did not have a Minnesotan on the University of Minnesota men’s basketball roster. The new head coach appears to be setting out to change that. Pitino recently signed forward Joey King, a former Eastview High School standout who played last season at Drake. King is expected to petition the NCAA for permission to play in 2013-14 because his transfer was for family reasons. If the petition is denied, he would not be eligible to play next season. Last week, Lakeville North senior-to-be J.P. Macura said he received a scholarship offer from Minnesota. The Gophers will have competition for Macura; other schools to offer him scholarships

Northern Lights volleyball teams do well in nationals
by Mike Shaughnessy Mike Fritze, who retired as Apple Valley High School’s head football coach after the 2012 season, will be on the sideline as a head coach in 2013 at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. He was appointed the Golden Eagles’ interim head coach when Paul Miller – also a former AVHS head coach – took a leave of absence for health reasons. The nature of Miller’s health concerns was not disclosed. Fritze was to be the team’s defensive coordinator this season. He had planned to join the Golden Eagles after the 2011 high school season before deciding to stay at Apple Valley one more year. In 2012, the Eagles went 8-3 and reached the state playoffs for the first time since 1993, when Apple Valley won its second state championship with Miller as head coach and Fritze as an assistant. The Golden Eagles have several players from local high schools on their roster, including defensive back Lethzee Calderon (Eastview), tight end Adam Eyton (Burnsville), offensive lineman Joe Machacek (Eagan) and defensive lineman Drew Selvestra (Eagan). Jake Neubauer, an offensive lineman from Bismarck, N.D., who played his final high school season at Rosemount, also is on the Crookston roster. The team will open its season with a home game against Upper Iowa on Sept. 6.
play.” Eagan also was one of 15 pool-play sites for the Gopher Classic. A downpour Saturday morning disrupted the schedule and caused some games to be cancelled, although none of the Patriots’ games were affected. “It went smoothly, at least for us, considering the rain we had Saturday morning,” Nagel said. All the same, it might have been a relief for the Patriots to arrive at Braemar Park in Edina for Monday’s games needing only to worry about playing baseball. Matt Fiedler pitched a one-hitter with nine strikeouts against Edina, in addition to going 2-for-4, scoring a run and driving in two. Chad Czaplewski also had two RBI. Josh Loew had three hits and two RBI in the victory over Coon Rapids. Ed Olson also drove in two runs, and pitcher Jon Estes held Coon Rapids to five hits and one run over the first six innings. A Legion schedule does not allow much time

Graff takes over for Farmington baseball Assistant, legion coach moves up to varsity head coach by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
For the first time in 13 years, the Farmington varsity baseball team will have someone other than Mike Winters as head coach. Assistant varsity baseball coach Jon Graff is taking over as head coach for the Tigers next year. He’s no stranger to baseball or Farmington. Graff has coached in the school district for 17 years. For the past 11, he’s been with the baseball program. Graff has been a history teacher at Farmington High School since 1997 and he’s also coached soccer, basketball and football. He’s had a variety of influences, asBASEBALL, from 16A for practice, so a key to Eagan’s success is “chemistry,” Olstad said. “We’ve been playing together for eight years and we know each other well. It’s definitely an advantage to have chemistry.” The Patriots hope it continues to prove useful as they face more of The Grind this weekend.
Gopher Classic notes Three other teams from the Sun Thisweek coverage area reached the playoff stage of the Gopher Classic. Burnsville, ranked second in the state, went 4-1 and placed first in its pool at Alimagnet
sisting five different head coaches. “I think you learn a little bit from each one,” he said. “You see what you like and try to replicate it, and sometimes you see situations or how things are done and think about how you might handle it, or do things differently.” Graff has been with the baseball team for many highlights. “My favorite memories are, one, just getting out and coaching ball with all the kids that have come through the system,” he said. “But, a couple of specific moments have to be the two conference championships and our trips down to Arkansas as being things I’ll never forget.” His coaching style won’t be much different than what players have seen before.
Park. The Cobras lost to Coon Rapids 3-1 in the round of 16. Eastview defeated Excelsior 3-2 in eight innings in its final pool-play game in Minnetonka. That gave the sixth-ranked Thunder a 4-1 record, the same as Minneapolis Southwest, but Eastview advanced because it defeated Southwest 1-0 earlier in pool play. Eastview defeated North St. Paul 2-0 in its first playoff game before losing to Rapid City, S.D., 6-4 in the quarterfinals. Seventh-ranked Lakeville North was 5-0 in pool play at Lakeville North High School and Frederickson Field in Elko. North lost to Rapid City 5-0 in
He stresses defense and fundamentals. “I try to get the kids to have high baseball IQs so they can react quickly to any given situation accordingly,” Graff said. “Doing small things well is a great secret to success.” He plans on making some tweaks and implementing a throwing and workout program for high school players. “This should help build arm strength throughout the program and ensure healthy arms that don’t get injured easily,” he said. Graff also coaches the American Legion baseball team in Farmington so he’s well aware of the capabilities of the players. The varsity team finished 7-7 in the Missota Conference in the spring and ex-

pects to see many returning faces in 2014. “It even goes further as our youth programs are seeing higher numbers,” Graff said. “We’re also starting to coordinate the different leagues a little better and I look forward to working with those programs.” He’s planning on strengthening the relationship with the youth programs. “I want to teach kids the finer points of the game and help them develop fundamentally to help them reach their goals, whatever those might be,” Graff said. “I’ll always be an ambassador to the game, trying to generate interest, knowledge and respect for the game.”

Naomi was a stray at 4 years old. She is perfectly housebroken and a real lady in the house. She can be bossy so best as an only dog or a dog friend that is submissive to her. She is good with kids but best in a home with kids 10 and up that are not so hyper. She is not high energy so this would make a great townhouse dog too. Adoption fee: $275. Call Kathy at 651-402-6223 to meet Naomi or see her at the Burnsville Petco and other dogs at the Apple Valley Petco this Saturday from 11-3. She will go fast!

Bluegrass brings brothers together Rosemount’s Sawtooth featured at bluegrass festival by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
The Rosemount Bluegrass Americana Festival this weekend will feature some familiar faces. Rosemount’s own Sawtooth bluegrass band returns to this year’s festival as the closing act on Saturday, July 20, at the city’s Central Park Amphitheater. The five-piece band features two sets of brothers – Clint, Luke and Shane Birtzer of Rosemount, along with Jesse and Ethan Moravec of Rochester – and combines traditional and contemporary bluegrass, classic country and even a dash of 70s-era rock. Sawtooth took first place at the 2008 Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association’s “Race for a Place” band contest, and last summer saw the release of “Gunflint Trail,” the band’s fourth album. This newspaper spoke recently with fiddler Luke Birtzer about the band’s influences, the appeal of bluegrass and what the future holds for Sawtooth. How did the band get its name? We are named after the Sawtooth Mountains in northeastern Minnesota. That region has long been a favorite spot for us to camp, canoe and fish, so we were proud to
take it as the name of our band. Who are some of the band’s musical influences? We are inspired as a band by Bill Monroe, Dailey and Vincent, the Grascals, and Nickel Creek, to name a few. And we have also been guided by Monroe Crossing, whose mandolin player is the step-dad of the three Birtzer brothers. Why bluegrass? What’s appealing to you about the genre? Personally, bluegrass has always impressed me with its down-to-earth nature and musicianship. I think the genre boasts some of the finest musicians, singers and songwriters in the world that play music from the heart. I think newcomers to it would be surprised at how dynamic it is. What’s it like playing with your brothers in a band – any sibling rivalry? There may have been some sibling rivalry early on, but we’ve grown past that. I believe working together as a band has matured us all greatly. What do the five members of Sawtooth do when they’re not rehearsing and performing? When we’re not performing, you might find us fishing together or playing games together. Otherwise, we’re at our other jobs. Luke and Shane work
The Okee Dokee Brothers will be bringing their kids-oriented folk and bluegrass music to Apple Valley’s Galaxie Library on Friday, July 26. The Grammy-winning duo comprised of Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing caters to young audiences with its witty lyrics and off-the-wall humor. The concert runs from 10:30-11:15 a.m. and there’s no cost to attend. More information is at www.co.dakota.mn.us/libraries. (Photo submitted)
at LearningRx as brain trainers, Clint works at the U of M, and Ethan plays bass for his church, Substance. This fall, Luke goes to Hamline University for digital media arts, Clint and Ethan go back to the U of M for journalism and mathematics, respectively, and Jesse has already completed another linguistics degree. Is the band planning another album after “Gunflint Trail?” What does the future hold? We will be playing music as much and for as long as we can. So naturally, we will be heading back into the studio again, but we have not formally decided when. • The Rosemount Bluegrass Americana Festival runs this weekend, July 18-21, in Central Park. The full lineup of performers is at www.bluegrassamericanaweekend. com. Bluegrass fans will have other chances to see Sawtooth this summer. The band is scheduled to play the Forest Lake bluegrass festival on July 27, and on Aug. 10 Sawtooth will take the stage of the Olde Pine Theatre in Pine Island. More about the band is at www. sawtoothbluegrass.com.
