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.

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 dog’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 area’s wolf population. The couple had almost resigned themselves to the likelihood that J.J. would not be coming home — they were starting to look into getting another dog — when a camper’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. “It’s like looking for a contact (lens) in a lake,� 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.

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)

Opinion

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.

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. Springer must be aware of the many studies that show there is little or no return on investment when more money is thrown at education. Springer’s no-

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.

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.

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.

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 john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

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 andy.rogers@ecm-inc.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

New mothers and their babies meet to share advice each week at Mama Cafe, BabyLove’s support group for nursing moms. (Photo by Kristina Ericksen) fitness, as well as birth doula services for physical and emotional support during labor. 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.

The Commission on Judicial Selection announced last week that a judgeship vacancy is open in Minnesota’s 1st Judicial District Court. Judge Michael V. Sovis, 64, of Apple Valley, has retired, leaving a vacancy to be chambered at Hastings. Sovis was appointed to the Dakota County District Court in 1998 by Gov. Rudy Perpich and won elections in 1990, 1996, 2002 and 2008. His retirement comes after he pleaded guilty May 22 to third-degree driving under the influence stemming from his Dec. 24 arrest in St. Paul when the Lexus SUV he was driving struck several parked cars along the 1200 block of St. Clair Avenue.

The church’s request for a variance to the city’s setback requirement was dropped, so part or all of the home’s garage will be removed, Chellberg said. Council Member Colleen LaBeau suggested the Plymouth Brethren identify their church with a sign so people would know not to park on the lot. City Administrator Steve Mielke said the group, which does not have a sign at its regular church building on Idaho Avenue, could instead place an informational sign identifying the parking is for site purposes only. Neighbors of the residential church property had issued numerous concerns about the parking lot, written emails, spoken at meetings and submitted a petition to the city opposing the project. Their concerns included

safety, traffic and the potential for a parking lot to reduce property values, but the plans met city code. The Planning Commission unanimously recommended last week that the City Council approve the project. Prior to the City Council vote, Council Member Bart Davis said the city does not allow churches on industrial properties because many are exempt from property taxes. He said the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church is legally allowed to locate in the residential neighborhood, adding that through the conditional use permit the city can add criteria by which they can reside at that location. If there were issues and the criteria were not met, Davis said the city could bring it back for review. The house, located at 9880 192nd St., will be gutted to create space for up to

40 people; the kitchen and bedrooms will be removed, and the 14-stall parking lot is planned for the east side of the building. Church members said they intend to use the building two days per week, and although the property includes space enough for at least one additional home, there are no current plans to subdivide the lot. Since first proposed, the group has decided to replace the building’s siding. Chellberg said there are birds living in the walls, and rodents in the basement. “It’s not a bargain for us,” Chellberg said. “We’ve got reams of work to do there, but it fits all the codes, it fits the neighborhood, it fits everything, and I am totally convinced that when we get done with this … the neighbors are going to be very happy.”

Dakota Communities changes name Eagan-based Dakota Communities, a 41-yearold nonprofit serving people throughout the region, changed its name to Living Well Disability Services effective Aug. 1. The change includes a new logo and the slogan, “Transforming Lives,� which represents the organization’s mission to deliver exceptional services that transform the lives of people affected by disabilities. The new name more accurately reflects the organization’s mission, areas served, breadth of services provided, and direction for the future. Changing its name to Living Well Disability Services was driven by the fact that the organization intends to serve more families in the future and become a resource to a broader group of people whose lives are affected by disabilities. Direct service professional employees aim to help each person achieve the highest level of independence and quality of life possible. Living Well Disability Services supports people regardless of where they live; in their own home, their family’s home or in one of the 33 group homes owned and operated by the organization.

Narrowing down Robert Street options Of the seven initial alternatives developed to improve transit between downtown St. Paul and Dakota County communities, three have been approved to move forward for further study. At its meeting July 25, the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis Steering Committee – comprised of county and city elected officials and representatives from the Metropolitan Council and MnDOT – selected the following alternatives: • A Robert Street alignment between downtown St. Paul and Mendota Road in West St. Paul that will evaluate arterial bus rapid transit • A Robert Street alignment between downtown St. Paul and Mendota Road in West St. Paul that will evaluate streetcar • A Highway 52 alignment from downtown St. Paul to Inver Grove Heights using highway bus rapid transit A detailed study of the alternatives will take place through the fall and will include a review of potential service plans, ridership, cost estimates, traffic analyses, land use and environmental concerns. Final results on the three alternatives will be available and presented at public meetings in early 2014. In addition to the three alternatives, a potential service extension from the Robert Street alignment and Highway 52 alignment into central Dakota County will be studied to assess possible service and capital improvements for limited stop service. The Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis is a joint local and federal planning effort conducted by the Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority and the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority.

Not just for boys anymore Teenage girls learn about alternate careers in Teens Experiencing Technical Education by Sarah Allen SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Buzzing, honking and drilling could be heard throughout the Dakota County Technical College hallways last week. Presumably, young men in hard hats would be seen earning their credits in railway and automotive classes. Instead, teenage girls were inspecting the underbellies of cars and operating backhoes. Girls in fifth through eighth grades explored career options in technical education from Monday, July 29, to Friday, Aug. 2, in Teens Experiencing Technical Education (TXT). A total of 175 students from Rosemount, Apple Valley, Burnsville and beyond learned how to dismantle computers, direct rail cars, operate robotics and much more.

TXT is a program designed to give young girls the opportunity for handson interaction with real jobs that may not be considered typical careers for women. Allison Duchscherer will be a seventh-grader at Rosemount Middle School in the fall. She did not know much about technical careers before attending TXT. “We went to the railroads and learned how to change the trains between each tracks,” Allison said. As a dancer at Heartbeat Studios in Apple Valley, Allison always wanted to be a choreographer. But after sitting in the seat of Vic’s 196foot, 165-ton crane, she may consider other options. “Maybe the thing I thought I would do, I might not do. I might try something different,” Allison said. Linda Foster, DCTC’s director of instructional tech-

nology, loves to see students get excited about a different kind of future. “We want to give them an opportunity to see nontraditional careers that they haven’t been exposed to,” Foster said. “The workshops are 100 percent hands-on. They are getting dirty using tools in the labs. There’s no PowerPoint to put them asleep.” During each day throughout the week attendees experienced different workshops in areas such as construction technology, automotive technology, health, engineering and robotics. In its third year, the event has become so popular that all 175 seats filled within two weeks. Anna Schmidt, a sixthgrade homeschooler from Burnsville, loved the automotive workshop while checking car parts, testing horns and learning how to

After Monday’s workshops, she thinks that girls can do “guy stuff.” “While we were in there, (the instructor) said that girls are more detailed than

men, so it makes it easier,” Anna said. Although Anna loves to dance and bake, she does not see herself as restricted to those activities. “I wouldn’t consider

myself a girly-girl, and I wouldn’t consider myself a tomboy. I’m just a girl,” she said. TXT draws back returnSee GIRLS, 11A

GIRLS, from 10A ing students, including sixthgrader Rhubee Affeldt, who says this is her favorite camp. “You get to experience more things than you do at other camps,” Rhubee said. TXT’s mounting success has caught the eye of numerous local dignitaries. Monday’s workshops drew in officials including Minnesota Office of Higher Education Commissioner Larry Pogemiller, state Rep. Anna Wills, local mayors, School District 196 and 194 officials and Minnesota Department of Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius. This year was Cassellius’ second visit. The program reeled her in as an enhancement to the

Minnesota Department of Education’s plan to redesign the transition for Minnesota’s secondary education students into post-secondary education. “It shows a pathway forward to many students who would be interested in that degree. This shows them how to get there,” Cassellius said after her tour of TXT on Monday. “There are real jobs out there right now available to anyone, girls or boys. It’s great to give kids these opportunities.” While many students, especially females, have steered toward four-year degrees in areas such as the liberal arts, Cassellius sees the event as a way to connect them to secondary education in more high-demand fields.

“College is something different now,” she said. “Before we just thought of college as a liberal arts degree, now (students) can land a great job and they can land a certificate in a specialized field.” Jobs such as crane operators are in high need and command high wages. Attending officials had their turn at operating back hoes, checking under cars and watching the girls in action. Cassellius enjoyed TXT so much that she wishes she could sign her seventhgrade son up for next year: “I asked, ‘Where’s the boys program?’ ” Email Sarah Allen dc.intern@ecm-inc.com.

Raptors eye next underdog challenge After winning state title, LV team plans to skip an age group by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

This summer, the Lakeville Raptors competed against soccer players their own age and were state champions. In the fall, they will return to the underdog role with which they’re familiar. The Raptors were boys Under-11 Classic 1 division champions in the recently completed Minnesota Youth Soccer Association summer state tournament (the U11 tournament games took place at Steve Michaud Park in Lakeville). That would make them an obvious favorite for the U12 Classic 1 state title next summer, but the players, coaches and parents have their sights set higher. According to coach Brian Lehman, plans are to form a hybrid team. Some of the Raptors’ top players would team with players from the nearby Dakota Rev Soccer Club to would compete in the U13 as 12-year-olds. “They would get to play 11 vs. 11 on a bigger field,” Lehman said. “We believe our kids are ready for that challenge. At first glance, we’ll probably be in U13 C2. We’re going to try C2 in the fall, and if we have an outstanding season, we’ll look at playing C1” in 2014. Taking on older competition is nothing new for the Raptors, who qualified for the U11 C2 state tournament in 2012 as 10-yearolds. This year they competed in the U12 C1 division at the Burnsville Fire Cup and placed second – the only tournament this season they didn’t win. They lost just two matches

all season – one in league play and the Fire Cup final in double overtime against a U12 team from Edina. Lehman said he saw that the group needed a challenge when it was dominating its 10-year-old developmental league in the Lakeville Soccer Association. Last year, he had them move to U11 even though most of the players were 9 or 10. “We’re very happy we did that,” Lehman said. “Our kids were smaller than the kids they were playing against, but we could see the foot skills develop, the confidence with the ball. When we played in our own age group this year, our kids had the technical ability to advance the ball and attack quickly.” The idea of youth athletes “playing up” against older competition can spark controversy, and it was no different in Lakeville. It was an issue at the center of a breach-of-contract lawsuit former LSA coaching director Alan Merrick brought against members of the soccer association’s board of directors. Merrick alleged that one of the reasons he was fired was he opposed letting certain Lakeville teams play up. The sides reached an out-of-court settlement in May. Lehman said there’s no question in his mind that playing up works for players who are skilled and motivated. His 9-year-old daughter was on a Dakota Rev U11 C2 team that reached the state championship game, “which was played right next to (the Raptors’) game at the same time,” he said. “The play-up debate seems to be getting harder and harder to argue against when you see teams and players successful at the highest level.” At state, the Raptors defeated Woodbury 1-0 and Minneapolis United 2-0 in group play. That

The Lakeville Raptors (white uniforms) won the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association summer state championship in the boys Under-11 Classic 1 division. (Photo courtesy of Paul Reiling) earned them a match in the final against Eau Claire, Wis., which had scored nine goals in two groupstage games. Lakeville won 5-2 and claimed the state championship. Lakeville players are Adam El-Halawani, Mason Faint, Sam Just, Alex Kot, Michael Krueger, Chase Lehman, Nick Mines, Zach Oelrich, Dante Piscitiello, Chase Reiter, Henrik Tikalsky and Jacob Young. Brian Lehman and Mike Oelrich are coaches. The team won six other tournaments, including one indoors. It won the U12 C2 bracket at a tournament in Plymouth and took first at the National Sports Center Spring Cup in Blaine.

Starting this fall, some of the Raptors are likely to skip the U12 level and play against U13 competition. (Photo courtesy of Paul Reiling) inc.com.

Notebook: Prep sports about to start again Coach-supervised practices begin Monday by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Maxim Zagrebelny(left), Gavin Young and Hunter Roseth were among Dakota County players who represented the Northern Section in U.S. Tennis Association 12-andunder zonal team competition last month in Omaha, Neb. (Photo submitted)

Local players compete at tennis zonal tourney Several players from Dakota County represented the Northern Section in the U.S. Tennis Association 12 Zone Team Championships last month in Omaha, Neb. School District 196 residents Eesha Varma, Karin Young, Gavin Young, Maxim Zagrebelny, Lauren Ferg and Aashish Bharath, along with Lakeville resident Hunter Roseth, competed in the tournament. They made up more than 25

percent of the team from the Northern Section, which includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and western Wisconsin. Each local player had at least one victory in the zonal tourney. Zagrebelny was 4-5 at the No. 1 singles spot. Roseth was 6-3 at No. 2. Gavin Young was 7-2 at the No. 3 spot and earned the sportsmanship award for the Northern Section.

Sports Briefs Aces at Birnamwood Two holes in one were reported recently at Birnamwood Golf Course in Burnsville. On July 31, Payton Hill aced the 139-yard, par-3 fourth hole, using an 8-iron. Shawn Welch of Lakeville scored a hole in one on the 159-yard, par-3 seventh hole, using a 7-iron.

Section groupings wouldn’t necessarily be considered in the plan brought to the MSHSL board. A number of issues still have to be addressed. It isn’t clear how (or if) it would affect schools in the South Suburban Conference, which already is compact geographically. If approved, the plan would take effect in the 2015 season. Schools will be allowed to have input this fall, with action possible by January 2014.

New BV girls hockey coach Tracy Cassano is returning to South Suburban Conference girls hockey after being named Burnsville’s head coach on Tuesday. Cassano, a Farmington resident, led Rosemount to the state Class AA tournament in 2011. The last two years she was head coach of the Chaska/Chanhassen cooperative team, which had a 30-21-3 record in her time there. Cassano, a member of the University of Minnesota’s 2000 national championship team, will be the third head girls hockey coach in three years at Burnsville. Longtime Burnsville coach Bruce Anderson retired after the 2011-12 season. He was replaced by Garnet Asmundson, who coached the Blaze to a 1410-2 record in 2012-13.

Erickson has denied making any such statements. A Nov. 3, 2005, Lakeville Planning Commission memo states the developer is “actively pursuing sit-down restaurants” on the lot, and the Lakeville City Council approved Hoppe Marketplace plats on Nov. 21, 2005, “with the understanding the property was to be developed as a sit-down restaurant,” the lawsuit contends. After the purchase of the Second Pointe property closed, at a cost of $2.9 million, the promised high-end sit-down restaurant was not constructed, and Malmberg allegedly brought in at least one potential purchaser interested in developing such a

may be interested in enrolling in Lakeville’s online school. LinK12-Lakeville offers virtual kindergarten through grade 12 classes and registration is open to anyone, anywhere. All students who enroll in LinK12-Lakeville are considered Lakeville students, and are eligible to participate in athletics and activities. The district anticipated it would begin accepting registrations for the virtual school Aug. 8, after this edition had gone to press, and had sent information to families in the district who currently homeschool or open enroll outside the district to encourage them to explore the opportu-

nities LinK12-Lakeville could offer. The additional 150 students enrolled in the district this year will allow Lakeville schools to hire four full-time teachers and some part-time specialists to teach online music and physical education. Snyder said the district is still working out staffing costs with the union, Education Minnesota, Lakeville. Many of the Somali students have been homeschooled or attended Minneapolis charter schools, but Snyder said parents have been looking for an alternative since 2007 because their girls have been teased for wearing burkas to school, the full body

restaurant to UPI, but the offer was reportedly rejected. A significant problem with Malmberg’s lot location was parking, according to the lawsuit, and the agreement adds a restrictive covenant requiring a non-exclusive easement for the Second Pointe building owners, tenants guests or invitees to use 22 parking stalls. The permanent restrictive covenants also prohibit any other building from being constructed any closer to the Second Pointe building than the auto parts building. Second Pointe’s suit also sought damages against UPI and its principals for multiple charges including breech of contract, misrepresentation, civil theft, deceptive trade practices and unjust enrichment. It charged the city of Lakeville with multiple counts, seeking damages for charges that include conspiracy, intentional or reckless misrepresentation, inverse condemna-

tion and interference with contract, some of which was related to recent council action approving the subdividing of the lot, allegedly in violation of Second Pointe’s easement and operation agreement with UPI. The lawsuit points out that Mayor Matt Little did not allow Malmberg or his attorney to speak during a May 6, 2013, meeting when the City Council was considering a plat that placed new restrictions on the property that did not exist when Second Pointe purchased the lot. Little did allow a UPI representative and city staff to address the issue, and the lawsuit contends the facts were misrepresented at that time, leading council to approve the development in violation of the original easement and agreements. The settlement agreement specifies the agreement is not an admission of guilt.

But if FAI isn’t recognized at an early stage, studies have shown that it can progress into osteoarthritis, causing many patients to undergo total hip replacements at a younger age which sidelines them from sports and a lot of other activities.” Johnson’s own experience with an impingement in her right shoulder at age 14 sparked her interest in the topic and a career as a physician assistant in orthopedics. In middle and high school, Johnson played competitive tennis and softball, but the summer before her freshman year at Lakeville South, she experienced severe shoulder pain that increased to the point where she could not lift her arm to shoulder height.

education taught in Lakeville schools. The Minneapolis students, whom Snyder said were all born in the U.S. and speak fluent English, will take Lakeville’s online classes from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., then the mosque is offering optional classes taught by its own staff on culture, religion and language until 6 p.m. “We’re being forwardlooking in thinking how public eduction is changing,” Snyder said. “We need to adapt to that and realize one size does not fit all, be willing to embrace that and go forward.”

numerous doctor visits, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Daniel Buss diagnosed the impingement. With all other options exhausted, Johnson, just 14, agreed to surgery to increase space in her shoulder joint. “It was a tough decision because I had to miss a year of tennis and quit softball so I wouldn’t overuse my shoulder anymore,” Johnson said. “This was extremely hard, because my life basically revolved around sports and the time I spent with my friends on the field or court.” Now a collegiate-level tennis player, she calls the surgery “the best decision I could have made.” The experience not only allowed her to continue playing sports, it sparked an interest in the sports medicine field. Johnson’s interest in the profession eventually drew her to job shadow Buss, even observing surgeries. She now works part time as an intern at Sports and Orthopedic Special-

ists, shadowing physicians, conducting research and administrative work. Buss called Johnson’s accomplishment significant. “Getting anything published is not a very easy thing to do,” Buss said. “It takes a lot of work, and most students actually never get to the point that they get to write anything up.” He called Johnson “a delightful young woman” who has determination, great organizational skills and is persistent in going after her goals. “Not many kids at that age have that kind of forethought and follow through that they can pull something off like that,” Buss said. After completing her pre-med/biology major, Johnson plans to apply to the masters program, and to conduct another undergraduate research project at UWEC involving FAI.

Meet Torino, an adorable little 4-month-old female tortoiseshell! Do you like calicos? Did you know tortoiseshells are calicos minus the white as the 3rd color? Did you know both calicos and tortoiseshells are always female? Do you like lap buddies? Then this kitty is for you! Torino has a unique and adorable gold streak down her face, a good purr motor, and a love for cuddling. Her foster Mom is unable to attend adoption events due to her job so this gem has gone undetected. Torino was born in her foster home where her foster family loves up their foster kitties really, really well so they are accustomed to being handled and cuddled. Torino’s fee is $100. Come meet her in her Lakeville foster home by contacting Teri at 651755-2966 or tahneroo@hotmail.com. She is great with kids, other cats, litter box, and scratching post perfect. To see more dogs and cats available for adoption please visit our website at www.last-hope.org or come to one of our pet adoption events Saturdays from 11-3 at the Apple Valley Petco, Burnsville Petco, or Eagan Petsmart.

Whole lotta shakin’ in Lakeville by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Jeff Kuelbs traces the origin of his Elvis routine to the day he got choke-slammed by pro wrestler Mitch Paradise. Kuelbs, of Lakeville, was taking part in a charity wrestling show in Hopkins at the urging of his friend and famed pro wrestler Sheik Adnan Al-Kaissey, who was organizing the event. “The Sheik needed a ‘good guy’ for the show and he asked me if I’d dye my hair and put on a jumpsuit to be Elvis,” recounted Kuelbs. “My opponent was Mitch Paradise – he chokeslammed me to the mat, then all the good guys came running out of the back and I kind of slid out of the ring.” It wasn’t long after his pro wrestling bout

that Kuelbs created “Elvis Flashback,” an Elvis Presley tribute act in which he covers classic songs from the King’s catalog such as “Jailhouse Rock,” “Burning Love” and “Suspicious Minds.” Kuelbs has delivered his Elvis routine at venues throughout the Twin Cities, including gigs at the now-defunct Hard Rock Cafe in Minneapolis as well as at various bars and private parties. He’ll be presenting his Elvis Flashback show in Lakeville Aug. 16-17 at Casa Bistro restaurant, 20198 Heritage Drive. The shows were booked to coincide with the anniversary of Elvis’s death (Aug. 16, 1977). While he considers Elvis Flashback a sideline to his day job – he works at Twin Cities HarleyDavidson – Kuelbs has

embraced the Elvis role. He’s the proud owner of about 25 different Elvis outfits; he’s also struck up a friendship with Sonny West, who was Elvis’s bodyguard. Kuelbs met West, the author of “Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business,” at a book signing several years ago, and the two hit it off. West joined Kuelbs last year on a visit to Graceland, Elvis’s home in Memphis, Tenn., and the friends keep in touch by phone a few times a week. Reservations for the Elvis Flashback concerts at Casa Bistro can be made by contacting the restaurant at 952-4693330. More about Kuelbs’s Elvis show is at www.elvisflashback.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville August 9, 2013 19A

Thisweekend Ramble Jam brings country to city In third year, Rotary Club fundraiser continues to grow by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The 2013 version of Ramble Jam, a two-day country music festival on the Dakota County Fairgrounds in Farmington Sept. 20-21, figures to be the biggest one yet. The event has grown from a one-day festival, to a two-day showcase with several national acts this year. This is the third Ramble Jam and fifth year the Rotary Club of Farmington has had a music fundraiser. Since it started, the festival has moved out of the barns at the fairgrounds to “one big party in the southwest corner of the fairgrounds,” said Anika Rychner, member of the Rotary Club of Farmington and co-chair for the Ramble Jam committee. The club is anticipating about 3,000 people each day of the festival. Jerrod Niemann is the headliner on Friday. His first album produced a No. 1 U.S. Country single with “Lover, Lover” and “What Do You Want,” which rose to No. 4 on the country chart. His second release featured hits with “Shinin’ on Me” and the ballad “Only God Could Love You More.”

He has hit the top of the country charts with six No. 1 singles from “Watching You,” “These Are My People,” “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Take A Back Road.” Brett Eldredge, Maggie Rose, Parmalee, Frankie Ballard and Chris Janson will also grace the stage at the fairgrounds along with a mix of local favorites. Returning to the lineup for the third year are Minnesota-based Lost Highway and Rocket Club. Twin Cities artists Hitchville and the Devon Worley Band are also making their second appearances at the event along with fellow Minnesotans Hell Country

Truckers, Two Hicks and a Chick and Greene and Hurst. “Fans love to see the local artists almost as much as they like to see the national ones,” Rychner said. Several Ramble Jam attendees are also planning on camping, although it’s just about sold out. “It’s become its own separate party,” Rychner said. “People from Iowa, South Dakota and Wisconsin come out with their RVs and decorate their campsite. That part has really become a lot of fun.” It’s the Rotary Club of Farmington’s main fundraiser of the year. With 23 volunteer members of the club with full-time jobs, it’s been a lot of work. “Everybody is in-

volved,” Rychner said. “Each Rotarian takes a piece. The whole thing has been an enormous undertaking. We’re fortunate to have such wonderful people in the community.” The club raises money for both community and international projects. The goal for Ramble Jam is to turn the profits back into the community. The club supports high school scholarships for Farmington High School students, runs a STRIVE mentoring program, holds a luncheon for senior citizens, provides scholarships for park and recreation events, and donates to 360 Communities along with several other causes. If Ramble Jam continues to grow, Rychner can see the event becoming an early-autumn staple in the local country music festival circuit. “The capacity is 10,000 so there’s room to grow,” Rychner said. “We’re taking little steps at a time. … The big festivals like WE Fest and Winstock started small.” The club still needs volunteers to work the event, including ticket takers, bartenders and security members among other duties. There are incentives such as free admission for volunteers. Tickets for one-day ($20 for Friday; $30 for Saturday) and two days ($40) can be purchased in advance.

For $99 attendees can purchase VIP passes, which include access to a standing-room only area right in front of the stage and discounts on drinks. Although there are no promises, in the past artists have been known to mingle in the VIP area. Prices increase on Aug. 19. There’s also a contest running on radio station K102, which is a sponsor, for meet-and-greet opportunities.

The club hopes to also raise money by selling raffle tickets for trips to Mexico and Nashville along with Minnesota Twins tickets and a signed guitar. The drawing is at 9 p.m. Saturday. To find out more visit www.ramblejamcountry. com. Email Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

“Tether” by Stephanie Molstre-Kotz

New art exhibit at Rosemount library council back in 2007. An opening reception for the show is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Aug. 15 at the library located at 14395 S. Robert Trail in Rosemount. There will be refreshments and MolstreKotz will be on hand to discuss her work. The exhibit runs through the end of October and can be viewed during normal library hours. This will be the third art show at the Rosemount library hosted by the arts council. “New Beginnings,” which opened in May, features the work of 10 local artists plus a stu-

dent display; pieces from that exhibit are scheduled to be taken down early next week as the arts council prepares the exhibit space for Molstre-Kotz’s work. The library show marks Molstre-Kotz’s fifth solo exhibit. Under the aegis of the Northfield Arts Guild she presented “Agassiz” in 2011, and in 2009 she exhibited at Concordia University in St. Paul for the show “Adapting.” More about her work is at www.stephaniemolstrekotz.com. —Andrew Miller
