A Lakeville South High School graduate has earned rare international recognition for her college study published in the Journal of Athletic Medicine. Madeline Johnson, a University of WisconsinEau Claire junior, is the study’s lead author and the first student in Minnesota or Wisconsin to be published in the journal. The article, “Do Football Players Have a Greater Risk of Developing a Hip Impingement?” compares hip characteristics of college football players to the characteristics of patients suffering from femoroacetabular impingement, referred to as FAI. Johnson said athletes in sports that involve repetitive hip rotation and hip flexion movements including football, hockey, soccer, gymnastics and horseback riding are at higher risk of suffering from FAI. The condition creates a
A lawsuit against the city of Lakeville, United Properties and some of its principals has been settled out of court. The action, brought by Second Point LLC owner Dave Malmberg, claimed city officials and United Properties Investment promised a high-end restaurant would be located on a neighboring lot, not the auto parts business that won city approval in May. The 46-page complaint alleged against United Properties included multiple counts against UPI, its principals and the city of Lakeville. The amended settlement, approved by the Lakeville City Council on Aug. 5, moves the proposed location of the auto parts store away from Malmberg’s Second Pointe building, which houses Re/Max Advantage Plus Realty, 9 feet south and 8 feet west

No monetary damages were awarded to Second Pointe.

Numerous stipulations employ requirements, limitations by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
The Lakeville City Council on Aug. 5 unanimously approved a church’s proposal to turn a house into a church building and, per city code, install a parking lot. Numerous stipulations were proposed as part of the conditional use permit granted to the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church, which applied for the permit as Minneapolis Meeting Rooms Inc., a Minnesota nonprofit corporation. Church member Tom Chellberg said they were happy with the outcome and plan to start work as
soon as permits are available; they plan to install the parking lot before winter. “We’ll get in there as soon as we can, but we want the parking lot in before frost for sure,” Chellberg said. In response to neighbor concerns, the council added more stipulations during the meeting, including adding a trash enclosure, installing low-voltage parking lot lighting that would not shine on neighboring properties and modification of landscaping proposed around the parking lot to avoid creating an unsafe Members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church listen and take notes as inforhiding place. mation is presented at the Lakeville City Council meeting Aug. 5.

Lakeville men save dog lost in Boundary Waters for 14 days A West St. Paul family has been happily reunited with its dog, lost for two weeks in the Boundary Waters, due to the extraordinary efforts of two Lakeville men. Mike Raub and Dave Krings were on a camping trip at Lake Sawbill last week when Krings spotted a nervous border collie on the outskirts of their camp and threw him a pancake. The frightened dog gobbled it up, ate another one, then feasted on a pasta dish they cooked for him, but would not come close, nervously curling up on a warm rock. A half-hour kayak trip away sat the dogâ€™s worried owners, Nicole Paradise and Greg Rohleder, at the campsite where the black-and-white dog had last been seen, about eight miles from the lake where a family friend had brought him on a Boundary Waters trip 12 days earlier. The skittish pup, J.J., had bolted into the woods when lightning and thunder struck just as a strang-

er suddenly appeared on the trail. Paradise said most dogs lost in the vast wilderness are either found within a few days or are never seen again, likely prey for the areaâ€™s wolf population. The couple had almost resigned themselves to the likelihood that J.J. would not be coming home â€” they were starting to look into getting another dog â€” when a camperâ€™s sighting of J.J. was reported. Within an hour, the couple packed and were taking the nearly five-hour trip to find J.J. The vast wilderness discouraged them as they paddled to the campsite, and their spirits further deflated when upon arriving at the camp, J.J. was nowhere to be found. â€œItâ€™s like looking for a contact (lens) in a lake,â€? Paradise said. About 45 minutes later, they still sat waiting, hoping J.J. would return, when Raub paddled up and asked if they were the people missing the dog. He led them to their campsite a half-hour away where they made them soup and coffee, assuring

On patrol, Lakeville Drugs, balloon bomb, burglar alarm are all part of a night’s work for Officer Tom Danielson by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Tom Danielson stealthily approached the Lakeville shopping mall, gun drawn. The Lakeville police officer was answering a dispatched report of an alarm at a tobacco business, an attractive target for thieves, Danielson said, since cigarette tax increases have created a hot black market; this store has been hit before. On this Friday night, however, the alert appears to have been a false alarm, and Danielson returns to his squad car. Danielson is about halfway through his 12hour shift, 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., confidently maneuvering his squad car in traffic while answering calls and running license plates of vehicles he encounters between calls to service.
Running license plate checks frequently yields stolen vehicles, people wanted on a warrant or unlicensed drivers, Danielson said. For a few hours on this night, nothing shows up out of the ordinary, but a stop for a headlight out results in a small drug bust. Danielson had stopped the white Honda on 160th Street, and spotted a plastic bag in the driver’s purse as she was looking for her driver’s license. His inquiry yields a small bag of marijuana, and a vehicle search produced drug paraphernalia, a nearly empty bottle of vodka, and a bottle of prescription pills. The cooperative driver was ticketed for a small amount of marijuana and open bottle. Later, Danielson takes pictures of a shattered windshield in the garage of a distraught Lakeville parent who reported her teenage daughter was behind the wheel when a water balloon was dropped off the Isleton Trail pedestrian bridge, one of two incidents that night. The girl said the water balloon sounded like a gunshot on impact; the other vehicle hit only got
wet. “The first thing is are you OK?” Danielson asks the girl. “That’s scary.” Danielson, 30, came to Lakeville in 2011 after working with tribal police at the Prairie Island Indian reservation in Goodhue County where he said they had about 5,000 calls per year. In 2012, Lakeville patrol officers responded to 37,786 calls for service. His wife, Katie Danielson, is an accountant and they have two preschoolaged children. Danielson said having children makes child abuse calls the most difficult ones for him to answer. “Anything with kids will get you,” Danielson said. “Any type of child abuse. Even something as little as a chid being sick. You can look at them and see if they’re scared, and it makes you think of your own kids.” The job can be stressful; Danielson has broken up fights, been a mediator during domestic disturbances and dealt with belligerent drunks during his shift work. Amid the trauma, Danielson said he has learned to turn off emotions during the most difficult scenes. “Dead bodies don’t
Lakeville police Officer Tom Danielson talks to a driver he has pulled over on a Friday night. (Photo by Laura Adelmann) bother me anymore,” he said. He has high praise for the volunteer community service officers who will transport people to jail or the police department, direct traffic and help monitor crowds during events. Their help frees officers to manage the more serious police calls, like two years ago on New Year’s Eve when Danielson was the first officer on the scene when he prevented a suicide attempt by talking to the woman. “You revert back to your training in those situations,” Danielson said. Police Chief Tom Von-
hof said Danielson is a gifted communicator, an important trait for a police officer. “I have often thought that for a patrol officer to interact and communicate with people effectively in all types of difficult and potentially dangerous situations is as much an art form as a professional skill,” Vonhof wrote in an email. “I think that Officer Danielson definitely has that ability.” He also has a passion for the job, a dream he has held since childhood. His father was a Red Wing firefighter, his brother is a paramedic
and his uncle is a state trooper, where the main focus is on traffic and accidents. Danielson said he prefers the variety and action of patrolling a city, although Burnsville, which shares a dispatch channel with Lakeville, has many more calls. Some on this night included a woman threatening another person with a gun and a burglary. “I like being in Lakeville,” Danielson said. “It’s a great place to work.” Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com.

The project required the removal of a portion of sod installed last summer. City Administrator Steve Mielke said the work, estimated to cost $33,000, was among the miscellaneous road projects approved in the 2013 budget. Crosswalks are planned for addition at the Highway 50 and Holyoke Avenue intersection abutting the sidewalks, and the intersection’s long-standing diamond-shaped median will be removed to promote safer road crossings. The intersection improvements are estimated to cost $113,350, according to Lakeville City Engineer Zach Johnson. The city’s share of the project is $55,950. (Photo by Laura Adelmann)

Most schools are safe, but there’s room for improvement As parents prepare to send their children back to school this fall, shootings in schools may have them wondering if Minnesota school buildings are safe. Experts say school buildings are very safe, but while there are crisis plans in place in most buildings, there’s no guarantee that all schools will be free of violence. The April 1999 shooting deaths of 12 students and one teacher at Columbine High School in Colorado sounded the alarm to school leaders and law enforcement that changes had to be made. Rick J. Kaufman, executive director of community relations and emergency management for the Bloomington school system, led the crisis response team at Columbine. Since then, he has become a nationally respected consultant and trainer of school safety and recently led a schoolsafety audit of Bloomington’s school buildings and developed recommendations that could be a model for all schools. The Bloomington School Board has authorized a bond levy election this
ECM Editorial fall for $6 million to make school buildings safer. If the levy is approved, upgrades would include: renovating all main entrances to schools, changing locks on all classroom doors, improving security camera systems and installing manual alarms. Other school districts planning school safety referendums in the fall and spring include Stillwater, Eastern Carver County, Eden Prairie and Wayzata. Since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Kaufman has advised school officials to update their crisis management plans along with involving local law enforcement, fire department and other life safety partners. The intent is to create barriers in school buildings to thwart intruders and protect students and staff. Kaufman’s first recommendation is to remodel main entrances of schools so
there is a secondary set of secure doors in place, funneling all visitors into the main office before gaining access into the school. Most schools require visitors to come through a front door and sign in. That’s not good enough. Another recommendation is to install classroom doors that can be locked from the inside by the teachers. Many classroom doors now can only be locked from the outside. Kaufman advises that all entry doors to the school should be locked, except the primary front entrance. Other recommendations are: Adopt a visitor management system integrated with the district’s student data base to ensure visitors have legitimate business at the school. Install security cameras to serve as a deterrent to detect incidents. Put in a silent panic button in school offices to alert staff of an emergency. Train all staff to respond to emergency situations, according to the National Incident Management System. Kaufman advises that all volunteers
who work in schools to undergo background checks much like those that all employees are required to undergo. He also suggests that an intervention system be set up to identify troubled students early so that they can be helped. The Milaca School District staff meets every other week to identify students K-12 who need special help. Students need to know the importance of reporting other students threatening violence or wishing to harm themselves. Kaufman says in all major shootings, the shooter had told someone of their plans to commit acts of violence in the school building. Ramona Dohman, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety says schools in Minnesota are very safe. While that’s reassuring, school officials have an obligation to do all they can to create schools where students feel safe and can learn better. An opinion of the ECM Editorial Board.

Second opinions valuable in medicine and in schools by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Fortunately, a second medical opinion this week showed I did not need a painful “spinal tap.” Instead, the second doctor who examined me (after I expressed concerns about the first, dramatic diagnosis), prescribed ice on my back and anti-pain pills every four to six hours. My morning’s very sore neck felt much better by the end of the day – and I was reminded once again, about the value of a second opinion, whether it’s in medicine or in education. When I was 12, I took a woodshop and metal class. The teacher told me if he had not talked with other teachers, he would have referred me to be reviewed as

a “special needs” student. I was really bad at metal shop. Despite my best efforts, I produced a spatula that was nowhere near as nice as a number of other young men’s … some of whom did not do well in writing or math. Those were areas where I did pretty well. In another column, I’ve mentioned terrific YouTube videos produced by students at High School for Recording
Arts (centerforschoolchange.org/dualcredit). These are incredibly creative and helped win their school the national best “school small business” award from Junior Achievement last year. Some of the most creative kids producing these videos are students who in other schools had been classified as “behavior problems” and “anti-social.” At High School for Recording Arts, they excel. My plea to parents is: Don’t be afraid to seek a second opinion, not just in medicine but also in education. If your child is doing well in a traditional classroom, great. Some students don’t thrive in a traditional classroom but excel in a more project-based, applied program. I think of the students at High School for Re-
cording Arts or the St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Arts and students who love a program called “Genesis Works.” Genesis Works students attend traditional schools part of the day and then spend another part of the day as interns in businesses. I’ll say more about this in a future column. The conventional school works well for some students. But some require a second opinion and a second option. True in medicine. True in schools.

Letters Teaching vital skills to unemployed To the editor: Erik Springer’s Aug. 2 letter was such a contretemps of logorrhea that a response is essential. In his letter, he expresses a beef with U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, for hosting a jobs fair which involved forprofit education schools. These companies teach vital skills to the unemployed so that they may find suitable careers. It is difficult to discern whether Springer wants these private companies to go bankrupt or if he thinks that pouring even more of the taxpayers money into public education will help it produce better results.

tion that more money spent on preschool programs is pure folly as children attending these programs show no appreciable gains after children matriculate to the third and fourth grades. There is no doubt that Kline’s position as chair of the House education committee puts him in the best position to help students and those seeking jobs and job training. RICHARD IFFERT Eagan
Kline education bill is throwback to bad old times To the editor: As chairman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, John Kline has worked vigorously to return federal education policy to 1964. His proposed legislation takes policy back 50 years. While it would retain the federal No Child Left Behind requirements that schools test students annually in math and reading from grades 3-8 and once in high school, states would set their own academic standards, decide whether schools are meeting them and determine what, if anything, to do about underperforming schools. The bill would delete a provision known as “main-
tenance of effort,” which ensures that states use federal dollars in addition to, and not as a replacement for, state and local dollars to help low-income, minority, disabled students and English learners. Kline’s bill would gut education dollars for poor students when a record numbers of U.S. children are living in poverty, weaken the accountability of schools serving low-income, minority and special-education students and allow states to ignore their worst schools instead of improve them. An unusual coalition of business groups, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Business Roundtable, have joined teachers unions, civil rights groups and advocates for the disabled to oppose the GOP bill. Education policy must be updated. As the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights said: “This bill is not an update; it is a rollback. It undermines the core American value of equal opportunity in education embodied in Brown v. Board of Education. It abandons accountability for the achievement and learning gains of subgroups of disadvantaged students who for generations have been harmed by low academic expectations. It eliminates goals and performance targets for academic achieve-

ment, removes parameters regarding the use of federal funds to help improve struggling schools, does not address key disparities in opportunity such as access to high-quality college preparatory curricula, restricts the federal government from protecting disadvantaged students, does not address poor quality tests, and fails to advance the current movement toward collegeand career-ready standards.” There are many good things to be said for the 60s. Returning to the educational policies of the time, however, is not one of them. RON GOLDSER Eagan
No surprise here To the editor: It comes as no surprise that Mike Obermueller uses an intern to secretly submit a letter to the editor (Aug. 2) attacking U.S. Rep. John Kline for bringing together 700 constituents with job creators. Obermueller probably needs the letter writing help when one considers two campaign volunteers from 2012 – Tom Craft and Paula Overby – are running against him for the DFL endorsement.

New state budget reduces property taxes To the editor: As I spoke with Minnesotans at their doors and over the phone during the 2012 campaign, I heard a common theme: Property taxes are too high. When you crunch the numbers, you’ll find that property taxes have increased by 86 percent since 2002. That kind of financial burden on our seniors, small businesses, and middle class families is simply not acceptable if we want to build a thriving economy. That’s why state lawmakers passed a new budget this year that makes good on our promise to deliver longoverdue property tax relief.
According to new projections from the Minnesota Department of Revenue, our budget will reduce property taxes in 2014 by an estimated $121 million, or 1.5 percent – the first decrease in over a decade. This is made possible by increasing aid to local governments, exempting cities and counties from paying sales tax, and providing direct relief to homeowners and renters. Here’s a quick look at how the direct property tax relief will impact Minnesotans in 2014: • More than 300,000 homeowners will see their Homestead Credit Refund increase by an average of $212. More than 137,000 additional homeowners will qualify for a refund. • More than 65,000 renters will see their Renter’s Credit increase by an average of $179. More than 10,000 additional renters will qualify for a refund. The new property tax projections are one of many signs that Minnesota’s economy is headed in the right direction. For example, our unemployment rate has fallen to 5.2 percent, which is well below the national rate of 7.4 percent. In addition, Moody’s Investors Service, a major credit rating agency, recently revised the state’s financial outlook from “negative” to “stable.” When you take other components of our new budget into account, such as providing all-day kindergarten for every child free of charge, expanding financial aid and freezing tuition for college students, and providing the largest business tax cut in state history, we have every reason to be optimistic about our future.

Leprechaun Days a rousing success
pork chop, cheered a kid catching their first fish, crossed the finish line at the Run for the Gold, gave blood at Walgreen’s, danced a little jig, drew with sidewalk chalk, had a root beer float, square danced, got a temporary tattoo, had a New Zealand meat pie, got an autograph from an NHL player, played pickleball for the first time, ate a few hot dogs, drove a tractor, ran with a bathtub and on and on. A big shout out to the Rosemount police, parks and recreation and public works departments; police reserves and mounted patrol. We couldn’t do it without all of their hard work. We had a wee bit of rain on our parade, but we marched on. Great job to everyone, especially Maureen Bouchard who organized the 100 units. We are proud to have honored the Rosemount High School marching band directors as parade marshals who are preparing for the Rose Bowl parade. Midsummer Faire was a big hit. Great bands, food and vendors. Thanks to Mike Bouchard, who keeps it all under control, and Steve Ball, for once again keeping us rockin’ the night away. Thanks to those who cleaned up after the crowds left each night. We were treated to a beautiful fireworks display, and we can always count on RES to give us a few surprises. A big thanks to our wonderful committee members. Without their time, knowledge and hard work none of this would be possible. Thank you to our sponsors. We couldn’t reach this level of success without their continued support. They help fund the bands, fireworks, parts of the parade, recycling and much more. A thank you to the local newspapers for their coverage and many photos. Planning for next year has already begun, as we are working on warmer weather. Thank you all so very much for making my first year as president so wonderful.

Mayhem at the midway
Demolition derby is County Fair’s weekend grandstand by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
Parents, spouses, children, insurance companies, and just about everyone you know would prefer you avoid crashing into another car. But in a controlled environment, there’s something about watching cars run into each other. “My kids like the idea of seeing Dad crash around,” Farmington demolition derby driver Nick Vought said. “I know my kids love it, and I have a lot of friends who do it.” Vought, 34, hasn’t missed a demolition derby at the Dakota County Fair in 17 years. He was a teenager when he first took the wheel in the smashing contest. This year, he’s fixing up a minivan for the competition. “I stripped out everything you don’t need,” he said. “You want one with the least amount of rust possible and as strong as possible. It takes about three solid weeks of weekends and evenings to get it derby ready. If I said a number on how many hours, my wife would
probably kill me.” It’s not exactly a profitable venture. He paid $200 for the minivan and installed a new motor. The top prize is different for every division, but for minivans it’s $600. The largest prize will be in the full-size car program, for which the champion will receive $1,800. “You would be hardpressed to make a profit at the county fair,” Vought said. “There’s a demolition derby with like a $10,000 purse, but people put in $8,000 motors. But the longer the motor runs, the better you do.” Vought said he competes for the thrill. “It’s a pure adrenaline rush,” he said. “There’s no fear once you get out there.” The demolition derbies that start at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday along with a 1 p.m. show Sunday at the Dakota County Fair are traditionally the most popular events. The derbies will feature about 150 vehicles from mighty minis, compact cars, midsize cars, full-size cars, stock trucks to weldup trucks. There’s even a lawn mower demolition
derby and a women-only powder puff event. The demolition derbies used to last five days, but it’s now down to three. “We’ve always had good numbers,” fair director Chris Wright said. “The weekend is always sold out.” The trouble is finding enough cars to crash. “It’s a trend nationally that derbies are fading,” Wright said. “A couple years ago, that ‘Cash for Clunkers’ got a rid of a lot of the derby cars. There’s just not the availability for those cars in the past.” During the summer of 2009, the intention of the Car Allowance Rebate System was to boost the economy and retire less fuel-efficient vehicles through economic incentives. It took approximately 700,000 used vehicles off the road, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Vought agrees there’s a lack of proper derby cars on the market, but he also said “a lot of it too is that other shows pay more money. The reason people (drive) in these events is different for everybody. I just don’t have the time to
Young entrepreneur eyes booze caps for next project Reimnitz seeks funding to launch Shotcaps by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
After tasting success right out of high school, entrepreneur Nathan Reimnitz did what any kid might have done. He enjoyed himself. Reimnitz had a winner with SyncMyAd, an online syndication service landlords could use to get apartment listings on multiple websites. Now he’s pouring his entrepreneurial spirit into launching Shotcaps – a liquor bottle cap and shot glass in one. But his previous venture capital partner is sitting this one out, and Reimnitz didn’t keep much cash from SyncMyAd, so he’s trying to raise at least $10,000 through crowdfunding. “The problem is, when I want to manufacture this product, I need like $100,000,” said the 24-year-old Burnsville resident. “I don’t have anything close to that. When I did the real estate project, I was drawing a pretty good check out of that. And being a young buck, I bought a sports car, went to Twins games, and just kind of wasted the money. I didn’t make very good choices when I had the success, and man, I’m kicking myself now because it would have been nice just to get this going out of my own pocket.” A 2007 graduate of Farmington High School, Reimnitz was a teenage skateboarder who saved paychecks from a summer job at Valleyfair to start his first business, Ello Skateboards. He still has the businesses, which employs his skills as a graphic artist to create graphic designs for the bottoms of skateboards.
“I graduated with distinction,” Reimnitz said. “I had academic honors. I had a 3.9 GPA. I took the PSEO courses at Normandale (Community College), but never did any college after graduation in 2007. That’s when I got into the real estate syndication services.” Inspired by a chapter in the book “Freakonomics” that he said questions whether the interests of real estate agents and their clients are aligned, Reimnitz envisioned creating a “CarSoup for houses.” His original Web business was aimed at the for-sale-by-owner market, but he and partner Dustin Griess changed the model at the recommendation of Space Center Ventures, which sunk $10,000 into the project, Reimnitz said. Rebranded as SyncMyAd and serving mostly landlords – along with a few single-family sellers – the business thrived for a while but eventually lost its originality, as well as a key contract with an apartment guide company that found another vendor to give it the same capabilities, Reimnitz said. “We were kind of ahead of the curve, but I don’t know that there’s a huge business there” now, said Reimnitz, who spent two years on the venture. Reimnitz said he later developed a reggae music-streaming website, Jam’s Space, in collaboration with Jim Dupont of Farmington, who came up with the idea. Shotcaps is an idea Reimnitz hatched before he was old enough to drink. Shotcaps come in three sizes: a 1.5-ounce single shot, a 3-ounce double shot and a 4-ounce mixed shot.
Shotcaps are unbreakable acrylic, and the shot glasses inside the caps are made of “non-flavortransfer” plastic that keeps plastic aftertaste at bay, according to Reimnitz, who said the design was done by California-based Traser Design. He’s seeking $10,000 through the crowdfunding service Indiegogo. Reimnitz said that would allow him to manufacture a few thousand Shotcaps of each size. Once he has $100,000 in purchase orders (Reimnitz is targeting liquor stores) Wells Fargo Bank has agreed to invest in the manufacturing, he said. “I guess they’re kind of aimed at the college kids,” he said of Shotcaps. “They seem to be the ones doing the heaviest drinking and always bringing their bottles from party to party to party. The product is a traditional shot glass and a bottle cap just combined.” While working on his latest venture Reimnitz is also earning a steady paycheck as a web designer for Viking Magazine in Burnsville, a magazine sales company. “I don’t have an employee mindset,” Reimnitz said. “I like being an entrepreneur and developing my own products, and hopefully someday making a little more money than I can sitting in a cube.” Information on Shotcaps is at shotcaps.com. The funding campaign opened July 31 and concludes Sept. 14 at 11:59 p.m. John Gessner can be reached at (952) 846-2031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

go around anymore, but I’m loyal to Farmington.” Drivers pay $40 for the right to participate the derby, which includes two gate tickets, pit passes and parking passes. There’s an inspection before the cars enter the arena with plenty of rules. If you roll over, or catch on fire, you’re allowed to stay in the arena, but a second fire or roll over and you’re out. Once the motor goes, so does a chance of winning. There’s a strict no alcohol rule, and no one under the age of 16 is allowed to drive or be near the pit. Vought admits it can be a bit dangerous. His wife, Jessie, tore shoulder ligaments during a compact car division bout years ago. “It’s just one of those things that happen,” Vought said. “I’ve never been hurt. It wasn’t a fluke thing, but it’s not that common either.” But even after the motors kill, the die-hard derby drivers will be back next year. “I grew up watching my uncles out there,” Vought said. “I say every year I’m going to stop, but my kids
tell me I can’t. I still have a lot of friends who do it. Email Andy Rogers at It’s a friendly competition email@example.com. out there.”

BabyLove offers parents essential birthing insight Eagan mothers support expecting parents with new business by Kristina Ericksen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE
BabyLove, Eagan’s independent childbirth education center, was founded in 2011 by Ve-
ronica Jacobsen and Brittany Kubricky, to give expecting parents a new outlet. The two mothers and Lamaze-certified childbirth educators once taught hospital childbirth education classes, but felt it was important for information to be accessible outside of hospitals. With BabyLove, the

two have been able to continue providing accessible and affordable information to parents in small class settings. “We don’t believe in catering to upper income families,” Jacobsen said. “We want to be accessible to everyone. Education should not be a luxury, it should be a necessity.” Recognizing the need for childbirth resources in the metro area, Jacobsen and Kubricky settled in Eagan and opened their doors to people of all backgrounds, ages, and occupations. Parents come from all over, and from as far away as Winona and Rochester. Not just women are expected to attend. Fathers, partners, sisters, and other family members are welcome at BabyLove. Shikha Goodwin of Apple Valley discovered BabyLove during her second trimester while looking for a Lamaze class. “Veronica and Jennifer were very nice when we talked on the phone. I knew it was the place for me,” Goodwin said. Goodwin and her husband attended the Lamaze class, to which she accredits the success of her natural birth free of any drugs or medical intervention. Goodwin gave birth to her first child, a girl, four months ago and continues to attend BabyLove’s weekly dance class for pregnant and postpartum mothers, as well as Mama Cafe, a get-together for nursing mothers. “BabyLove was the best thing to happen during my pregnancy,” Goodwin said. “Everyone is so friendly. It’s the most amazing thing.” BabyLove offers an array of classes, including childbirth education, breastfeeding, baby care, prenatal and postpartum

Unlike most in-hospital classes, BabyLove’s small-sized classes also have an added social aspect, with time built in for questions and discussion. “Becoming new parents can be an isolating experience,” Jacobsen said. “But we’re seeing friendships form here.” Goodwin, who moved here from India, does not have family close by. However, with the connections she’s made in Mama Cafe and other classes, she now feels BabyLove is “like family.” In addition to its classes and services, BabyLove recently published an online eBook, “A Guide to Twin Cities Birth Place Options.” The 47-page book examines local hospitals and other various free-standing birth centers in the area. “Parents don’t typically put much thought into their birthing options. They usually just choose whatever hospital is closest,” Jabobsen said. “This
eBook is a great tool to get parents thinking.” Jacobsen advises parents to first read the eBook early on in their pregnancy and then start attending classes. The eBook covers differences between various hospitals that many parents aren’t aware of. “Most people think that a hospital is a hospital, that they’re all the same,” Jacobsen said. “But they’re not.” Differences between hospitals and other freestanding birth centers vary from size, waterbirth availability, personal shower facilities, Caesarian rates, types of care, and other information that parents should consider when choosing a birth center. Parents should also take into consideration how a high- or low-risk pregnancy will affect their options. “We just want to raise awareness,” Jacobsen said. “Because finding good education really reduces the anxiety and confusion that comes with pregnancy.” Goodwin encourages
any family expecting a child to go to BabyLove for the classes and the people. “Jennifer and Veronica are so friendly and welcoming. They’ll always answer questions and are very hospitable,” Goodwin said. “They’re more like friends than teachers.” Jacobsen cites the positive feedback from mothers as the most rewarding part of BabyLove. “I love to hear women say, ‘We’re so glad we found you!’ And I love to see the babies after they’re born and to watch women develop as mothers.” BabyLove welcomes any questions parents might have and encourages both prenatal and postpartum women to stop by. “We really just want to help people have healthy pregnancies,” Jacobsen said. “Not just for the baby, but for the mom as well.” More information is at www.babylovemn.com.
