City Administrator Steve Mielke said the obstructions interfered with staff’s ability to clean, and business owners struggled to display merchandise in front of their buildings for sidewalk sales. Business and property owners also cited concerns about aesthetics, the potential for injury and liability as thousands of people showed up for the popular events. Some business owners removed the items placed in front of their shops, leading to disputes and more complaints. Tschumper said the items staking claims impeded people from entering downtown businesses. “People walking down the street had less room to walk,” she said. “Businesses looked so bad, and people had to be careful where they walked so they wouldn’t trip.”


Blankets, duct tape, cinder blocks and chairs were among items used by Lakeville residents to stake a spot for watching the Pan-O-Prog parade and Cruise Night car show this summer, with most claims set up a week in advance of the events. “In years past, they’ve done this same thing, but never so early,” said Lakeville Downtown Business Association Director Judy Tschumper. “Once one started, they all thought they have to get their stuff out. It was jam packed.” She said materials lined downtown streets from 210th Street to County Road 50, making it look like it was “covered with trash.” Lakeville Mayor Matt Little said the “newest phenomenon” was for people to chalk of swaths of areas on the sidewalk, write their names in the middle to reserve a spot. “I thought that was rather brash,” he said. Narrow sidewalks were made hazardous as bricks, large rocks and cinder blocks were used to hold down tarps, blankets, towels or canopies. People took cell phone pictures for proof they had staked their claim, many of them located in front of businesses. “Nobody talked to the business owners first,” Tschumper said. “They just came and plopped it down.”

Cedar Avenue project may turn southbound lane around for northbound commuters by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Nineteen minutes. For many commuters, every minute counts. A new project under consideration might give thousands of Dakota County rush hour commuters who cross the Minnesota River on Cedar Avenue every day 19 more minutes of time out of the bottleneck. The Minnesota Department of Transportation and Dakota County will host an open house 4:306:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, at Eagan City Hall to explain how managed lane


and contraflow magic could work on Cedar Avenue. One of the proposals under consideration would use ramp meters, freeway cameras, electronic signs and a current Cedar Avenue southbound lane from 138th Street in Apple Valley to Old Shakopee Road in Bloomington for a MnPASS lane for northbound traffic in the mornings. The idea would create access points and a movable barrier that would separate the southbound lane so it could be used by northbound traffic, which often bottlenecks from 138th to Cliff Road where

The graphic shows the configuration for evening commute when three lanes could be available for southbound travelers and the morning configuration when a concrete median could be deployed to allow a southbound lane of Cedar Avenue to be used for northbound travelers. there are only two northbound lanes. MnDOT calls the idea a contraflow lane, which could save northbound commuters up to 19 minutes if completed, according to MnDOT south area planner Jon Solberg. It would have the ability to accommodate 1,100 to 1,400 vehicles per hour,

Solberg said. Those vehicles would be singleoccupancy vehicles paying through MnPASS, carpools, motorcycles and buses. MnDOT says Cedar Avenue crash rates are increasing and traffic volumes are expected to increase by 36 percent over the next 20 years.

Interim Lakeville police chief named Sergeant selected; candidates have until Oct. 14 to apply by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A 17-year veteran of the Lakeville police force has been selected to serve as the interim chief. City Administrator Steve Mielke said Sgt. John Kornmann will lead the department following the retirement of Chief Tom Vonhof on Sept. 30. Kornmann, a patrol sergeant who is the department’s most senior sergeant, will coordinate the work of the department and work closely with the three division captains, Mielke said. “Sgt. Kornmann is well-versed in the policies and procedures of the department and has a working knowledge of all the functions of the department,” Mielke wrote in an email. He said Kornmann will serve as the interim chief until a new chief is hired. Mielke said he hopes to announce the new hire by Thanksgiving, but the new chief may not start until December if the person needs to give 30 days notice. Kornmann will not be considered as a candidate for the permanent position, Mielke said. “It was decided that the interim chief should not be a candidate so as to allow all internal candidates to apply on an equal basis,” Mielke

John Kornmann said. He said the department’s three police captains declined to apply for the interim position after learning the interim chief would not be considered for the permanent position. “That does not necessarily mean they will all apply for chief,” Mielke said. “It just means that they declined to serve as interim.” As interim, Kormann is responsible for coordinating the department’s three major divisions: patrol, investigations and administration. Each division will continue to

be run by a captain. The interim chief will make decisions based upon existing policy and practices. “I have reserved all major personnel and policy matters to myself with the assistance of the interim and captains,” Mielke said. “Given these factors, there is no need to seek an external individual (for interim) who would not be familiar with the current practices and procedures.” The city is accepting applications until Oct. 14 for a new police chief and is working with consultant David Unmacht of Springsted Inc. to narrow the search. Unmacht will review all applications and candidate backgrounds and qualifications to develop a list of applicants and give a recommendation on the candidates he feels best meet the qualities and experience the city is seeking, Mielke said. Mielke said about five or six candidates will be selected from that list for interviews. The interviews are to be with three groups: department personnel, City Council members and a panel with peers and potentially a chief from another organization. Each panel member will provide perspective on each candidate, but the panels will not be asked See INTERIM, 15A

Multilane roundabout project raises council concerns Two-year project starts in 2014 by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Dakota County’s first multilane roundabout project at county roads 50 and 60 is a massive two-year undertaking that will create more traffic backups in Lakeville starting next year. The project requires extensive work to move buried utility lines and grade the site, which is slated for 2014. Dakota County Traffic Engineer Kristi Sebastian told City Council members at a Sept. 23 work session that there may be some road closures during that time, but the majority of them will happen throughout the construction season of 2015. A proposal to phase the project was rejected by most of the 34 residential and 10 businesses affected by the project, because it would extend the time needed See CONCERNS, 15A

Local effort to end human trafficking continues by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A local woman’s fight against sex trafficking took her to Thailand, Sept. 12-22, where she went undercover as a sex tourist in the red light district. Adri Carlson, leader of Hosanna Church’s trafficking abolitionist movement in Lakeville, visited several of the bar-brothels that line the crowded streets in a popular area for sex tourism. Bikini-clad girls smiled from street-side patios, beckoning passersby into the bar where dancers perform. Patrons pick girls by the number they wear, negotiating the price with the bar’s “mamasan,� a female bar owner, usually about $30 for a few hours or $95 for a night. “The bar owners literally don’t care about the girls,� Carlson said. “They could leave and not come back. They won’t chase them down.� Mamasans have no reason to care because there is always a steady supply of girls. “If I needed money, all I have to do is say, ‘Can I have a job?’ � Carlson said. “They can give you an outfit or tell you to take off your clothes, and that’s what you’ll wear tonight.� Carlson, of Eagan, was one of eight from Arise Women Ministries of Minneapolis on the mission to find sex workers who may want to escape the sex trade. They posed as customers, picking out girls, then sitting with them in the bar or club and talking to them or offering them a free manicure. “They’ll sit next to you in a bikini,� Carlson said.

a way out of trafficking by offering them jobs making T-shirts, jewelry or sewing. It is a ministry model Carlson said she would like to replicate here, but she is not sure how to deal with the pimps. While prostitution is “part of the culture� in Thailand, Carlson said, in Minnesota, girls and women are often tricked by their pimps into thinking they care for them before they are raped, drugged, manipulated, threatened and beaten to make them compliant. The pimps are often violent and have chased girls down to make them return. Carlson helped one local woman escape prostitution before she was under a pimp’s control. The woman was working in strip clubs and making extra cash on her own as a prostitute. The owner of one of the clubs she worked at was pressuring her to work for him. She called Carlson, who helped her find resources, assisted her with her resume and job interview skills. She now has safe housing and a job.

Buckthorn-removal season is back Metro area cities educate residents on eradication techniques by Kyle Stowe MURPHY NEWS SERVICE

Buckthorn removal is nothing new to the Twin Cities area. “We’ve been working more than 10 years to clear in some city parks,” said Janet Van Sloun, Minnetonka natural resources restoration specialist. “And we’re still working.” This fall, a number of metro-area towns and cities will continue efforts to remove buckthorn from city parks and encourage residents to slow the growth of the invasive species. By setting an example on city-owned grounds and taking the time to educate people about the importance of clearing buck-

thorn, experts believe they are making progress in restoring natural habitats. “We do a lot to help get the word out and educate people about the topic,” Van Sloun said. “And we’re seeing results.” European buckthorn, a shrub-like plant that can grow into a small tree, has run rampant in Minnesota and other parts of North America since it was introduced to the continent in the mid-1800s. Native to Europe, the species has no known pathogens or predators to limit its growth away from home. Buckthorn forms a dense, thick understory in native woodlands that outcompete native plants for sunlight, said Laura Van Riper, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources terrestrial invasive species coordinator. She added that the end result isn’t pretty. “It shades out native

plants from underneath,” Van Riper said. “It creates a buckthorn monoculture.” With no known biocontrol to exterminate plants by the masses, cities are continuing to turn to residents to take it upon themselves to remove buckthorn from their own property, Van Riper said. But there’s a catch. “It’s a multi-year commitment,” Van Riper said. “If you cut the adult trees down you’ve brought a lot of light into the site, and the seed bank in the soil will germinate and it will grow back up.” Van Riper added that removing buckthorn in the same spot over a number of years requires patience, but there are rewards over time. “It takes years of effort especially up-front,” Van Riper said, “with the hope over time we’re doing less work each year.”

Education efforts To better teach residents about the benefits of restoring natural habitats to a buckthorn-free state, cities around the metro are doing a number of things to help raise awareness. Burnsville uses its website, quarterly newsletters, and a new program that encourages neighborhood chatter to help thwart buckthorn, Caleb Ashling, Burnsville natural resources technician, said. “The city will come pick up buckthorn if at least three people from a neighborhood submit an application for pickup, Ashling said. “We hope it makes buckthorn more of a conversation topic to neighbors.” The city of Eagan has conducted a buckthorn removal assistance program for several years that provides free pick up of cut buckthorn from private

residential properties. Private property owners should contact the Forestry Division tree inspector (651) 675-5300, prior to conducting any buckthorn control activities, to set up a required site visit. Apple Valley, Farmington and Lakeville residents can use city-owned tools for pulling buckthorn plants from the ground. The city of Apple Valley no longer offers free buckthorn pickup. Pickup is not available in Lakeville or Farmington.

eradicated, Van Riper said the hope is that the continued application of management techniques will reduce its abundance. She said there are still many questions to be answered that may help lead to more effective removal efforts. “We’re still learning about what we can do to reduce its success and increase diversity at a site,” Van Riper said. Van Sloun believes that slowly, but surely, cities that make buckthorn removal a priority will Looking ahead continue to see noticeable Van Riper is optimistic change. “The difference is like about buckthorn removal efforts in the Twin Cities black and white,” Van Sloun said. “It’s worth it.” area. “We have a lot of nice success stories from differ- Kyle Stowe is studying ent cities and parks that journalism at the Univerhave made efforts and have sity of Minnesota. really made noticeable improvement,” she said.

Raising a digital citizen seminar to educate parents on technology Lakeville parents can attend technology seminar by Andy Rogers and Jennifer Chick SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

With inappropriate images, computer-ruining viruses, identity-stealing programs, and strangers with ill intent seemingly lurking behind every click, it’s a challenge for parents to remain calm when their child turns on their laptop, smartphone or tablet. To help, the Farmington and Lakeville school districts and Farmington Community Education has partnered to sponsor a free presentation and workshop by national speaker Devorah Heitner at 7 p.m. Oct. 3 at Farmington High School and at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 4 at Boeckman Middle School. Heitner is a consultant

who helps parents understand technology and media and navigate technology in an intelligent and safe manner. The 90-minute workshop will feature a question-and-answer session along with a presentation on how to better navigate the world of technology. She will also spend time in the schools before the presentation so she can share with parents how the tablets are being used in the classroom. “In the Farmington School District, with all the kids now having iPads, and Lakeville now has an iPad initiative, we have a lot of parents with a lot of questions,” Farmington Community Education coordinator Barb Pierce said. “We don’t want the technology to take over family life, but instead be a positive influence. (Heitner) is a nationally known speaker and we liked what

she has to say.” Heitner is a highly sought after and highly recommended expert with a doctorate degree in media/technology and society from Northwestern University. She has been speaking about the field of media studies for 10 years and recognizes that parents need this information, especially after becoming a parent herself. “It really is a different world from when we were kids,” she said. “Kids don’t have as much independence as we did ... and yet they have access to all this information that we didn’t have at this age, so we really need to mentor them. “I love helping families enhance their lives by using technology in a smarter way and making a few small tweaks to tame the stress from the overwhelmingly connected world we

live in,” she writes on her website, She talks with parents about how this opportunity to connect can be used to improve the world. She aims to demystify digital footprints and online reputations. She seeks to give parents usable and memorable ideas they can use right away. “Raising a digital citizen is really at the core of everything that is happening in Farmington,” said Jim Skelly, communications and marketing coordinator for Farmington schools and a Lakeville School Board member. “The world these kids are going into is a digital world.” He said that learning to become a digital citizen at school is only part of that. Parents must also help to model and teach that at home, but the district has

found that though students are very comfortable with the technology, parents aren’t equipped to handle it. That’s why these organizations are creating this opportunity for parents to learn tools and strategies to incorporate at home. “This is part of an ongoing strategy to help parents understand what their role is,” Skelly said. The Farmington School District has already banned two applications – SnapChat and Kik. SnapChat was banned because of the distractions it was causing and the general lack of usefulness. While Kik, a messaging application, raised concerns of online safety and protection from strangers. “Parents didn’t grow up with this,” Pierce said. “People aren’t quite sure of appropriate boundaries and kids want to go every-

where and do everything. We don’t want people to be afraid of it, but we also don’t want it to be an unhealthy situation.” Pre-registration is not required and Continuing Education Units are available for a small fee. More information is available at (651) 460-3200 or online at The community education partners with the Farmington and Lakeville districts on a four-part parenting series during the school year. There will be a mental health presentation Oct. 28, physical activity presentation Feb. 10 and one on discipline and self esteem March 2. “It’s also a good opportunity for parents to meet up with each other and talk about these things,” Pierce said.

Stand with 360 Communities against domestic violence by Sal Mondelli SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

“This is where I’m gonna die and nobody’s gonna know what happened.” This is what one domestic abuse survivor, Kelly, recalls thinking during one incident in which her boyfriend repeatedly kicked her, threatened her and held a gun to her head. Kelly is one of the lucky ones because she lived to talk about her experience. She then freed herself and her children of that abusive relationship with the help of 360 Communities Lewis House. Unlike Kelly, too many women do not have that chance. So far in 2013, 31 people have been killed in domestic violence incidents Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women. In 2012, at least 18 people were killed as a result of domestic violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and 360 Communities is committed to engage the entire community to help us curb domestic abuse in Minnesota. Last year, our violence prevention and intervention services helped more than 2,500 women and children with shelter, counseling, education and outreach. For much of 2013, our Lewis House domestic violence shelters in Eagan and Hastings have been at or above capacity. In October, we will be joining the MCBW’s Live Violence Free flag-raising campaign. During the first week of Oc-

Guest Columnist

Sal Mondelli tober, 360 Communities and other participating organizations around the state will display the Live Violence Free flag in recognition of the women killed in domestic violence incidents in Minnesota. After Oct. 7, every time there is another domestic violence homicide in Minnesota, we will display the flag for one week. When the MCBW releases its annual femicide report Jan. 28, we will raise the flag on that day as well. This is more than just a way to raise domestic violence awareness. It is a way for the state of Minnesota to unite with one voice to say: • No more girls becoming one in three women worldwide to experience domestic violence in their lifetime. • No more boys growing up to perpetuate the cycle of violence they witness, experience and learn in their childhood. • No more men turning a blind eye to the problem. A healthy and safe community begins with all of us taking ownership of this issue. It is up to the entire community to project the expectation that all women and children have the basic human right to be safe. It’s about protecting

women and children today, but it’s also about breaking the cycle of violence that threatens future generations. If we don’t engage this problem directly, the cost in human lives is only the beginning. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Children who experience childhood trauma, including witnessing incidents of domestic violence, are at a greater risk of having serious adult health problems including tobacco use, substance abuse, obesity, cancer, heart disease, depression and a higher risk for unintended pregnancy.” When children experience love, respect and empathy in the home, they are more likely to model that behavior as they grow into adulthood. Help us promote safe and healthy relationships in our community and in all of our homes. If you would like to get involved, there are a number of ways you can make a difference in the fight against domestic abuse. • Be alert to signs of domestic violence. If you suspect a friend, family member or neighbor is experiencing abuse, call your local police department. • Volunteer to be a court advocate helping women navigate the court system and providing them with valuable resources and support. • Volunteer to read to or play with kids at one of our Lewis House domestic violence shelters. • Hold a domestic violence awareness campaign at your business or school.

Education policy belongs at the state and local levels by U.S. Rep. John Kline SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

As families across Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District adjust to a backto-school schedule that autumn quickly ushered in, I would like to provide an update on my efforts at home and in Washington on behalf of students, parents and educators. I am constantly working to ensure schools here in Minnesota and around the nation provide a strong foundation for our next generation of leaders. Throughout the school year, I hear often from teachers, students, parents, superintendents and school board members about education successes and struggles. Many have shared with me their concerns about the outdated No Child Left Behind accountability structure. Whether I am meeting with educators at education roundtables in Minnesota, visiting kids and teachers at our local schools, or conducting committee hearings in Washington, I have heard countless stories about amazing progress happening in schools in Minnesota and around the nation. This success isn’t due to heavyhanded Washington dictates; rather, it reflects the work of parents, educators, principals and state officials who decided the status quo is not good enough for our kids. We learned about the ground-breaking

Guest Columnist

U.S. Rep. John Kline programs and initiatives they’ve implemented to serve students more effectively. We listened to the ways they are working to hold schools more accountable – not just to the government, but to their local communities and families. And we heard impassioned stories of how much more these dedicated reformers would do for our children, if not for the slew of onerous Washington mandates and outdated regulations standing in the way. In July, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Student Success Act (H.R. 5), my legislation that revamps our education system by reducing the federal footprint, restoring local control, supporting effective teachers and empowering parents. Simply, it is about delivering the long-term solutions children deserve. My legislation eliminates the onesize-fits-all Adequately Yearly Progress metric and returns authority for measuring student achievement to states and school districts. It also grants states and

districts maximum flexibility to develop effective school improvement strategies for underperforming schools. And the bill repeals the outdated federal “Highly Qualified Teacher” requirements and encourages states and school districts to develop teacher evaluation systems that better gauge an educator’s influence on student learning. Above all, the Student Success Act is about tearing down barriers to progress and granting states and districts the freedom to think bigger, innovate and put more children on the path to a brighter future. Far too often, partisan bickering and petty politics dominate the headlines from Washington. I am pleased to report there are instances in which Washington comes together on behalf of the Americans they represent. In August, I joined President Obama in the Oval Office for the signing of the Smarter Solutions for Students Act (H.R. 1911), bipartisan legislation that ties student loan interest rates to the market rather than allowing Washington politicians to set the rates. My market-based plan kept rates from doubling and actually lowered rates for thousands of Minnesota graduate and undergraduate students. Seeing this bipartisan proposal become law reminds us what can be accomplished through hard work and compromise. I look forward to building upon this suc-

cess as we work toward other shared goals, including raising the bar in the nation’s classrooms by revamping federal K-12 law, strengthening job training opportunities for American workers and improving college affordability and access through the upcoming reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. I take seriously my role in Congress to help protect and defend America’s children and their families. As chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, I helped champion bipartisan legislation that funds the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The legislation, H.R. 3092, passed the House of Representatives last week and ensures the center can continue its work on behalf of our nation’s greatest resource – our children. I would like to offer my best wishes to parents, students and educators as the 2013-14 school year continues and they take an important step toward securing a brighter future for everyone. U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-2nd District, is chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee. He also serves on the House Armed Services Committee. He and his wife, Vicky, live in Burnsville.

Letters Preventing disasters To the editor: Some letter writers want to bang on the outdated drum of “no new taxes” again. These folks sing a one-note song, equating all progress with lower taxes and describing all taxes as a “disaster.” This exaggeration is the reaction of folks who could not find a way to balance the budget at the state government without resorting to gimmicks and “shifts” that led to inadequate funding for our schools, for our roads and

bridges, and for safety for Minnesota citizens. It’s interesting that in 2007, weeks after awards were given to Minnesota officials for keeping business taxes low, we saw a bridge fall at a cost of many millions of dollars in tax money, and 13 unnecessary, tragic deaths. That’s a visible, audible disaster. A more silent one is the loss of educational opportunity for young people when schools have to cut classes and teachers due to lack of funding, and class sizes grow to exceed 40 students per room.

Friends and neighbors who provide high-quality day care for our infants and toddlers work hard to safeguard these treasured children. These caregivers deserve respect, not some of the lowest wages in our economy. As with teachers, our society must find a way to compensate these important people that reflects their important role. It’s ridiculous that single parents must settle for the equivalent of less-than-adequate care for their children so they can work. These are some of the disasters that can be prevented by an ad-

Don’t stifle U.S. energy production To the editor: The current administration in Washington, D.C., does not have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. Yet they are proposing even more taxes on American energy companies to generate more revenue for the federal government, while sending billions of dollars overseas to meet our energy demands. The energy industry in the United States has experienced a resurgence in the past decade. Oil and natural gas productions are at all time highs and leading the charge for an energy secure America. President Obama’s tax increases will surely slow this progress and possibly reverse a trend of job and revenue growth in the energy sector. It is time for America to rely on our own resources and get behind an industry that will lead the way in maintaining U.S. leadership. We need to only look at North Dakota to see a prime example of what happens in the energy industry when government simply gets out of the way. Government needs to start looking for ways to cut spending, lower energy costs for Americans, and invest in our national security. Not placing more

Teen sentenced for highspeed crash that killed two Driver will spend next two anniversaries of accident in jail by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

An 18-year-old Burnsville man received an unusual segmented sentence for a crash that killed two of his friends last year. Joshua Decoteau will serve 60 days in the Juvenile Service Center and an additional 10 days in the

Dakota County Jail on the anniversary of the deaths in 2014 and 2015. He was also sentenced to perform 100 hours of community service. Decoteau was 17 and a newly licensed driver when he took four friends on a high-speed cruise of up to 96 mph before he lost control, crashing the car through a fence next to Buck Hill Road in Burnsville and flipping it several times before it landed on the southbound lanes of I-35. Alesha Roehl, 17, of Castle Rock Township, and

Frederick Alexander, 16, of Burnsville, died in the crash. Two boys, a 16-year-old Lakeville resident and a 17-year-old Burnsville resident, were injured. Decoteau was sentenced in juvenile court under Minnesota’s extended juvenile jurisdiction statute, which provides a stayed adult prison sentence and extends the juvenile court’s jurisdiction over the case until he reaches 21. Decoteau pleaded guilty earlier this month to two felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide (involv-

ing gross negligence), one felony count of criminal vehicular operation (involving gross negligence resulting in substantial bodily harm), and one gross misdemeanor count of criminal vehicular operation (involving gross negligence resulting in bodily harm). Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said he was “pleased that the driver accepted responsibility for his dangerous behavior, which caused two deaths and other injuries.�

Apple Valley woman accused of lottery fraud

Burnsville woman killed in morning crash

An Apple Valley woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly stole more than $10,000 worth of lottery tickets from her place of employment. Scarlet E. Lund, 44, was charged with state lottery fraud Sept. 11 following a police investigation into theft of lottery tickets at Apple Valley’s Cedar Brook Market, 12503 Germane Ave., between January and April of this year. According to the criminal complaint, Lund allegedly stole the lottery tickets during her work shifts at the market, then cashed the winning tickets at stores in Apple Valley and Eagan. The State Lottery Office reported that the stolen tickets were cashed at four locations in Dakota County – at Cedar Brook Market, the Apple Valley American Legion, PDQ

A Burnsville woman died Tuesday morning following a multi-vehicle accident in Minnetonka. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 49-year-old Darvin R. Basche of Apple Valley was proceeding north through the intersection at Highway 7 and County Road 101 at about 7:40 a.m. when his Ford Super Duty pickup truck broadsided a westbound Toyota Corolla driven by 58-year-old Elizabeth P. Ketcher of Burnsville. The Corolla had a green light at the intersection, the State Patrol said. Following the initial impact, the Corolla spun out and struck a Nissan Juke stopped at the traffic light, and the Nissan was pushed into a Toyota Highlander. Ketcher, who was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, died as a result of her injuries. No injuries to other drivers were reported. Ketcher was wearing a seatbelt and her airbag deployed in the accident, the State Patrol said. Alcohol was not detected in any of the drivers involved. Basche’s pickup truck suffered severe damage in the accident and Ketcher’s Corolla was totaled. Damage to the Nissan Juke and Toyota Highlander was “moderate,� the State Patrol said. —Andrew Miller

in Apple Valley, and Kwik Trip in Eagan. Surveillance video from the American Legion and Kwik Trip shows a woman – later confirmed to be Lund – redeeming lottery tickets worth $30 and $100. PDQ surveillance video shows an unknown male redeeming one of the stolen tickets. Police spoke with Lund, who stated she had a gambling problem and that she was the only person involved in the lottery ticket thefts, the complaint said. The investigator showed Lund pictures from the PDQ surveillance video and Lund asserted she was unfamiliar with the man seen redeeming the stolen ticket. If convicted, Lund faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of $50,000. —Andrew Miller

‘Bus guy’ hits the road

MnDOT commissioner travels state to talk transportation by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Minnesota Department of Transportation Commissioner Charles Zelle is a bus guy and a visionary of sorts. Zelle has logged seven months as commissioner after being appointed in January by Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton. Prior to assuming his current role, Zelle served as president and chief executive officer of Jefferson Lines, an intercity bus company with routes in 13 heartland states from Minnesota to Texas. He remains chairman of the Jefferson Lines board of directors. Zelle previously served on Dayton’s Transportation Finance Advisory Commission, an 18-person committee looking at the transportation puzzle. Zelle’s directive from Dayton has been “to get out there” and tell the story of transportation needs in Minnesota, which has the fifth largest road system in the country. He said he has been listening to every community story to help frame a statewide vision of transportation. Yes, there are many transportation needs. Zelle’s campaign consists of information gathered from the Minnesota GO visioning process to better align the transportation system with what Minnesotans expect for their quality of life, economy and natural environment over the next 50 years. “Our economy is diverse, and we pay the

improvements on the state’s 12,000-mile highway system. Most of the money forecast to be needed is dedicated to rebuilding and preserving roads and bridges; 80 percent of the state’s assets are made up of roads and bridges, he said. There is a need to improve roads and bridges and bring them up to safety standards each year, he said. Expansion is also sought, but there are not enough resources to expand everything that is needed, Zelle said. The planning is coming in phases and focuses on where the funding has been and where it might be in the future. Transportation funding comes from four sources: • Federal dollars, $600 million to $700 million annual budget.

bility will be left to the states and regions, Zelle believes. Zelle said federal stimulus funding several years ago was a godsend, as was funding provided on the state level by the transportation bill of 2008, which featured an override of former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s veto. The Hastings bridge project would not have happened without the stimulus funds and override of the governor’s veto, Zelle said. MnDOT has done $1 billion in construction work this season and in the past five years has completed considerable work, he said. “We have caught up on a lot of our work,” he said. He said it takes multiple years to plan a construction program. He said funding will go back down for 2016 and 2017. “We need a sustainable source of money for our projects, and part of the challenge is that the gas tax is locked and does not increase with inflation. Costs go up. Our resources are flat, and the purchasing power goes down,” he said. Zelle said national polls have shown that when citizens know there are dedicated funds for roads, bridges and transit systems and they see a benefit from this, they are open to the costs. “We need to connect Stimulus funds the benefit with what we There will be a federal are asking,” Zelle said. role in transportation funding, but it will prob- Howard Lestrud can be ably not expand, Zelle reached at howard.lesaid.

Dayton shied away from calling for a gas tax last session, but it could come up in the next session. Zelle said he believed it was important to have a tax increase every year. He said it could be indexed to inflation or set. The gas tax is a user fee that should be looked at by the Legislature on a nonpartisan basis, Zelle said. Looking at the 20year projections, Zelle said these problems did not happen overnight and solutions also will not happen overnight. “It is hard to create a sense of urgency for the long term,” he said. Business expansions are occurring, and populations are moving and becoming more concentrated in the metropolitan areas, Zelle said, so more transportation options will be needed. Freights are projected to go up, maybe by 30 percent – a conservative figure, Zelle believes. To stay competitive, Zelle said it is critical that MnDOT stress pavement quality and the importance of maintaining the integrity of bridges.

Local cycling league ‘pedals’ fun, excitement Area athletes part of new league’s growth by Betsy Helfand MURPHY NEWS SERVICE

After the combined team of BurnsvilleLakeville North-Lakeville South won the inaugural boys/girls team Minnesota High School Cycling League championship in 2012, the league kicked off its second season Sept. 8 in Inver Grove Heights with more than 300 racers. That is almost double the number of bikers from last season. “I think we started off on a really good note this year with our first race,” league director Gary Sjoquist said. One key difference from last year is that results are now tracked via chips, as opposed to manually last season.

Sjoquist said the timing system took a little bit longer than he would have liked, but aside from a few minor glitches, there was little confusion and very few problems. That isn’t the only thing new to the league this year. Burnsville and Lakeville North-Lakeville South are no longer on the same squad. “Cycling introduces teenagers to a lifelong sport that is part of a healthy lifestyle and connects them with the outdoors and the environment,” said Burnsville coach Chris Harvey. “Our team has participated in volunteer trailwork sessions to help build and maintain the local mountain bike trails. Mountain biking also attracts students who don’t fit into a typical ball or stick sport, about 50 percent of my team had not participated

in a high school sport until they joined the mountain bike team.” Representing her school, the Blaze’s Jordan Horner finished first in the varsity girls race with a time of 1 hour, 25 minutes, 20.16 seconds. Horner accumulated 1,725 points over four races last season to be the top girls finisher overall. “Like other endurance sports, being a top athlete dedication and the desire to train everyday,” Harvey said. “The athletes like Jordan Horner, the 2012 Minnesota High School Cycling League champion has been training and racing for many years.” Dakota County dominated the top of the podium in the four-lap girls race with Apple Valley’s Camille Sjoquist in second place. Carley Endersbe and Libbey Endersbe, of

Lakeville North-Lakeville South, finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Caitlin Juvla was sixth for Apple Valley. The day also included races for junior varsity, sophomore boys, freshman boys and a combined underclassmen girls. The cycling league launched a series of four races last year with 160 athletes from 15 teams. This year, there are more bikers, teams and races. The league will have five races each season and has more than 25 teams participating. Teams are comprised up of high school students; sometimes multiple high schools combine to form a composite team. Eagan, Eastview and RosemountApple Valley-Eagan also have teams. Sjoquist said this jump in participation didn’t

come as a surprise to him. “I figured we’d be growing at a pace like this,” he said. “The kids have fun and the fact that (they’re) racing for (their) high school is kind of unique and that seems to draw all the kids together.” Four of the races will be at different courses this season, and Sjoquist said the change of venues is helpful in the league’s growth. “I’m deliberately moving the race courses around the state because it helps drive the development of teams,” he said. Sjoquist said the league wanted to do a Saturday race just to see what it was like. That race will be held on Sept. 21 at the Jail Trail in St. Cloud, and will be the second race of the season. Other races this season include Sept. 29 at Hillside Park in Elk Riv-

Buckthorn removal time is here Metro area cities educate residents on eradication techniques by Kyle Stowe MURPHY NEWS SERVICE

Buckthorn removal is nothing new to the Twin Cities area. “We’ve been working more than 10 years to clear in some city parks,� said Janet Van Sloun, Minnetonka natural resources restoration specialist. “And we’re still working.� This fall, a number of metro-area towns and cities will continue efforts to remove buckthorn from city parks and encourage residents to slow the growth of the invasive species. By setting an example on city-owned grounds and taking the time to educate people about the importance of clearing buckthorn, experts believe they are making progress in restoring natural habitats. “We do a lot to help get the word out and educate people about the topic,� Van Sloun said. “And we’re seeing results.� European buckthorn, a shrub-like plant that can grow into a small tree, has run rampant in Minnesota and other parts of North America since it was introduced to the continent in

the mid-1800s. Native to Europe, the species has no known pathogens or predators to limit its growth away from home. Buckthorn forms a dense, thick understory in native woodlands that outcompete native plants for sunlight, said Laura Van Riper, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources terrestrial invasive species coordinator. She added that the end result isn’t pretty. “It shades out native plants from underneath,� Van Riper said. “It creates a buckthorn monoculture.� With no known biocontrol to exterminate plants by the masses, cities are continuing to turn to residents to take it upon themselves to remove buckthorn from their own property, Van Riper said. But there’s a catch. “It’s a multi-year commitment,� Van Riper said. “If you cut the adult trees down you’ve brought a lot of light into the site, and the seed bank in the soil will germinate and it will grow back up.� Van Riper added that removing buckthorn in the same spot over a number of years requires patience, but there are rewards over time. “It takes years of effort especially up-front,� Van Riper said, “with the hope over time we’re doing less

work each year.�

Questions were also raised about how to inform people of the new requirements. Council Member Colleen LaBeau said claim-staking is disrespectful to businesses and suggested not allowing claim setups until after 1 p.m. Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that point, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how you break it up and have them remove it by midnight and go back down by 9 in the morning,â&#x20AC;?

He said people have the right to be in the public right-of-way, but not to leave items in it. Mielke said city staff will seek feedback and review options ranging from amending times that people can reserve spots to banning the reservation system altogether. The city will also consider how to inform the public of the new policies, once established. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It needs to be addressed in some fashion,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said. For the past few years, the city of Apple Valley has had an ordinance in place that items canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be placed on streets to save spots for the Freedom Days parade until 24 hours before the 1 p.m. Saturday parade.

CenterPoint Energy urges customers to be on alert for potential scam Utility customers targeted by ‘Green Dot’ pre-paid debit card scam Utility customers around the country are being targeted by the ‘Green Dot’ pre-paid debit card scam, and CenterPoint Energy is warning customers to be alert. Posing as electric company employees, scammers are calling customers to tell them they are behind on their electric bills and have a short time to make a payment. The customers are told to purchase a Green Dot pre-paid debit

card or other type of reloadable debit card, load the card with money and then provide the serial number from the card to avoid having their electricity shut off. It is important to note that while CenterPoint Energy does bill customers for natural gas service, it does not send bills for electric service and does not provide electric service in Minnesota. Therefore, any caller posing as a Cen-

terPoint Energy employee asking for payment of an electric bill should be considered suspicious and reported to the customer’s retail electric provider – the company that bills them for electric usage. “While we have not experienced this type of activity, we want to remind customers to report any suspicious activity to their local police department, file an identity theft report and contact their

bank or other financial institution(s) to report an incident,” said Gregory Knight, vice president of CenterPoint Energy’s Call Center. To avoid falling victim to any scam, CenterPoint Energy reminds customers of the following: • Protecting personal and financial customer data is of utmost importance to CenterPoint Energy. • CenterPoint Energy

phone agents (whether inbound or outbound) will never personally request banking or credit card information over the phone, but will instead transfer a customer to an interactive voice response system to collect payment information for natural gas bills. • Company field employees carry identification which clearly shows a photo and name and will never ask for Social Security numbers or bank data

during a field visit. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and Edison Electric Institute (EEI), an industry trade organization, are tracking this scam. EEI notes that customers in at least 12 states and Washington, D.C., have been targets of this scam. EEI has posted information on its website,

Fall Home Improvement 9.27.2013

Homeowners who plan create beautiful spaces A home remodeling project is an endeavor people should go into with a plan for success. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry, which has a Roseville-based Minnesota branch, offers practical advice for homeowners undertaking such projects. “The planning and researching phases of a project are the most critical steps in the remodeling process,” NARI national president Art Donnelly said. “The more knowledgeable and prepared a homeowner is, the more they protect themselves.” There are 10 steps association experts say are the best to follow to ensure a great result. Research your project. Taking time to research projects on the Internet and will provide a good sense of what is involved such as price, scope of work, return on investment and new product/material options. Also, research property values in your neighborhood to make sure your project is in line with other homes in the area. Plan a project around the long-term. How long do you plan to stay in your home? How might your family structure change over time?

Elegant and functional spaces in a home are often the result of a well-designed plan and thoughtful decisions. Life can change quickly – these questions should be answered early on to ensure your project will fit your lifestyle long after it’s complete. Set your budget. Deciding on a realistic budget and arranging finances to support your project are essential. This number needs to include everything – the project, products, contingencies, etc. Don’t be afraid to share this with your remodeler; professionals are respectful of a client’s budget and will create a plan around it, not over it.

Use advanced search for professionals. The online world makes it easy to gather information about strangers. Ask friends, family and neighbors for referrals and then spend time researching that person online. Professional remodelers take their reputation seriously and hold credentials beyond licensing, such as certifications, memberships in trade associations and additional training. Look for examples of press coverage or involvement in industry presentations or events. Check online re-

views and social media to see how they interact with past clients and peers. Ask the right questions. Time and cost are important, but getting the right information requires the right questions. Ask your professional remodeler about educational background, training, specialties or past issues with clients. Ask about how the remodeling process will work. Verify your remodeler. Don’t take their word for it. Check the information given to you such as references, license num-

bers, insurance information and certifications by calling providers to verify. Request a visit to an active client’s jobsite. Make it known that you are checking on them – a true professional considers that as a positive sign to working with a homeowner. Review contracts wordby-word. A remodeling contract protects you and your remodeler. Homeowners should review this carefully. Professional remodelers have done this before, and know what should go in a contract. Homeowners are not as familiar with remodeling and should ask about terms if they don’t understand. Pay attention to details about change orders, payment, additional fees, timeline and responsibilities. If it’s not in the contract, it doesn’t exist. Keep design in mind. Your design guides the entire project. Think about what you dislike about your current space and the intended use of the new space. Use websites such as and to gather design ideas. Make sure you can articulate specifically what you like about that design when talking to your designer. Professionals don’t recreate a photo – they incorporate

accessibility, functionality, ease of modification, style and value into your design. Make your selections. Deciding on products and materials is a larger process than most imagine. With so many options to choose from, product selections are one of the primary reasons for project timelines to get extended. Base decisions on quality, function, price, style and availability. Include selections in the contract to lock down pricing and keep your budget intact. Create a communication plan. A common downfall in remodeling is lack of communication between homeowners and remodelers. Your remodeler should lay out a communication plan at the beginning of the project. If not, ask them to do so. This plan should clarify roles of everyone involved, communication methods, availability, and frequency of communication that is expected. Consumers may visit to find a qualified professional who is a member of NARI or call NARI National at (847) 298-9200 and request a free copy of NARI’s brochure, “How to Select a Remodeling Professional.”

Fall Home Improvement 9.27.2013

Assess a home’s efficiency with an energy audit Minnesota residents experience all that the four seaons have to offer, and that includes having to deal with weeks of extreme heat and bitter cold temperatures each year. Those swings in the weather, like the five-day stretch in Dakota County when temperatures exceeded 90 degrees in late August, can be tough on a home and cost a lot in cooling bills. Homeowners wondering how to save money on energy bills can conduct a do-it-yourself home energy audit. The National Association of Home Builders experts say it is a fast, relatively simple way to assess how much energy a home consumes and determine

what homeowners can do to make a home more energy efficient. A home energy audit will show where a home is losing energy, how efficient heating and cooling systems are, and ways to conserve electricity. All it takes is a thorough inspection of the areas listed below and keeping a checklist of the problems. Air leaks – Stopping or minimizing drafts can save 5 to 30 percent on annual energy costs. Some places to inspect where air commonly seeps from homes include gaps around: baseboards, wall and ceiling junctures, electrical outlets, switch plates, window frames, weather stripping, fireplace dampers, attic doors, win-

dow-mounted air conditioners and foundation seals. On a home’s exterior, look at the areas where two different building materials meet, such as corners and areas where siding or brick come together with chimneys or the foundation. If a window rattles or there is daylight around door or window frames, air is likely being lost. Once the leaks have been identified, seal them with caulk, weather stripping or the same material as the original seal. Replacing windows with new, high-performance ones will improve a home’s energy efficiency and lead to a tax break. An inexpensive alternative is to attach plastic sheets around win-

dows. Insulation – In older homes especially, the amount of insulation in the ceiling and walls may be insufficient for current standards. See if an attic door is insulated and closes tightly. Openings around pipes, ductwork and chimneys should be sealed. Look for a vapor barrier – tarpaper or a plastic sheet – under the attic insulation. To check walls, make a small hole in a closet or other out-of-theway place and probe into the wall with a long stick or screwdriver. The area should be completely filled with an insulating material. Fill the gaps in any openings with expanding foam. Flexible caulk

should be used to seal any electrical boxes in the ceiling. If a home lacks a vapor barrier, consider painting interior ceilings with vapor barrier paint. This reduces the amount of water vapor that can pass through the ceiling and reduce insulation’s effectiveness. Heating/cooling – Inspect heating and cooling equipment. See if ducts and pipes that are located in unheated spaces and that water heater and hot water pipes are insulated. Dirt streaks around your ductwork, especially near the seams, are evidence of leaks. Have your equipment checked and cleaned by a professional annually. A forced-air furnace should

have its filters changed as soon as they are dirty. Even if they aren’t, replace them every 30 to 60 days. Consider replacing units that are more than 15 years old with a new energy-efficient one. Lighting – Look at the bulbs in the home and determine if a lower-watt bulb would work just as well. If there are areas where lights are on for extended periods of time, a compact fluorescent lamp can save up to 75 percent of the lighting energy of an incandescent bulb. A home audit is a great way to find out a home’s energy deficiencies and make simple improvements that will save time and money in the long run.

Local Community Cheers YEA! For Entrepreneurship Lakeville ISD# 194 Middle Schools and All Saints Catholic School Partner With Lakeville Area Chamber Commerce to Welcome Young Entrepreneurs Academy into Classrooms.


The Young Entrepreneurs Academy, or YEA!, is an innovative program that guides students through the process of starting their own real business. Lakeville is excited to announce the start of their program which is the first of its kind in Minnesota.

Dental Advice Q: How does my dental insurance yearly maximum work? A: Dental insurance can be confusing! The majority of dental plans offer a set dollar amount that the member can spend each year on qualified dental procedures. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the maximum allowed amount each year, that money disappears. This essentially creates a â&#x20AC;&#x153;use it or lose itâ&#x20AC;? scenario each year. Dental offices can absolutely help their patients, maximize their dental insurance dollars, reducing what the patient pays out of pocket. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your dollars expire at the end of the year. Contact your dental office or Lakeville Dental Associates at 952-469-3300 today to talk about how to best use your dental benefit dollars!

The Lakeville program is for area middle school students and will be held at McGuire Middle School beginning October 1, 2013 and continue for a nine month commitment period. In that time they brainstorm and form their enterprises, make pitches to potential investors, obtain funding, register their companies with governmental agencies, and actually launch their own company or social movement! Business mentors, graphic designers, and local entrepreneurs support the students throughout the program and all of the learning is real and experiential. By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims at teaching students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job. YEA! is the only pre-college program developed by an entrepreneur, at a university, with support from a major entrepreneurial foundation, the Kauffman Foundation and the United States Chamber of Commerce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We specifically chose the Lakeville Area Public Schools to be one of our partners because of its reputation for academic excellence,â&#x20AC;? said Gayle Jagel, the CEO and founder of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entire business community is really on board with schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to pilot the program in the fall,â&#x20AC;? adds Jagel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are urging all local business leaders to become involved with the program and act as mentors to the budding entrepreneurs.â&#x20AC;? By partnering with YEA!, both large and small companies/businesses volunteer their time and services acting as business mentors, field trip hosts, guest lecturers, graphic designers, web developers, attorneys, etc. Community support strengthens the program, and the academy strengthens the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so excited to be a partner with the Lakeville Area Chamber. Our goal is to eventually provide a unique and challenging experience for all students interested in participating,â&#x20AC;? said ISD #194 Superintendent Dr. Lisa Snyder â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most interesting components of the program is the actual behind the scenes knowledge the students are given from local business leaders, who were at one time, standing in their shoes!â&#x20AC;? exclaims Todd Bornhauser, President of the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The experience is something they will be able to apply to whatever field they choose to enter, thereby giving them the necessary skills to become future leaders of industry.â&#x20AC;?

This year, the Coats for Kids programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall goal is collecting 10,000 coats. The collection drive runs through Friday, Oct. 11. Pilgrim Cleaners has collected more than 385,000 coats since it started the program in 1986. Sun Newspapers, WCCO Radio, KARE 11 and Subway are sponsors. Anyone who wants to donate a gently used coat can take it to any of the 25 Pilgrim Cleaners locations. The program accepts coats for children and adults. Go online to to find a location. Pilgrim will clean the coats and give them to eight metro-area charities, which will distribute them to those in need. Monetary gifts may be sent to the Coats for Kids fund, c/o Pilgrim Cleaners, 3217 85th Ave. N., Brooklyn Park, 55443. One hundred percent of donations will go toward purchasing new childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coats. Schools are encouraged to organize their own coat drives. The school that collects the most will win a Subway Party and a plaque for the school.

When Barb Bechard started collecting coats in 1999 to donate to families in need, she set a goal of giving 25 coats. The Fridley resident gave 150. The next year she thought she could collect 200. She got 500. Now, she makes it her goal each year to collect 1,000 coats for the Coats for Kids program through Pilgrim Cleaners, which has locations in Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan and Lakeville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just kind of become a mission for me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love doing it.â&#x20AC;?

Another wild finish for South

North, Rosemount rewrite pool records

Fake punt provides winning points by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Having already gone to a little-known rule to turn one potential defeat into victory, Lakeville South’s football team had to show its resourcefulness again, just one week later. This time the Cougars were trailing Apple Valley by five points midway through the fourth quarter and facing a punting situation. Except punting was about the last thing they wanted to do because South already had two punts blocked, and they led to 14 Apple Valley points. So, the Cougars called in Rambo – no, not Sylvester Stallone’s heavily muscled character from the film series. Their version of Rambo is a gadget play, one of a half-dozen fake punts South coach Larry Thompson says the team has in its repertoire. Apple Valley charged, hungry for another punt block. South punter Tyler Lattery leaped, pretending that the ball was snapped over his head. But it actually went to the up man, A.J. Westrude, who raced 54 yards untouched for the winning score in Lakeville South’s 29-26 victory last Friday. “It was wide open,” Westrude said. “We didn’t want to risk having another punt blocked. The coaches called for Rambo, and it worked perfectly.” The previous week, South took advantage of a rule that allows free kicks after punts that are fair caught to nail a 49yard field goal from kickoff formation in a 20-17 victory over Eagan. The Cougars probably would prefer not to reach this deep into their bag of tricks this early, but they’re 3-1. “We found a way to get it done,” Thompson said. “Right now we’re probably an

Lakeville North took first place in South Suburban Conference girls swimming with a 100-85 victory over Rosemount on Sept. 17 in a dual meet that produced six Kenwood Trail Middle School pool records. Lakeville South beat Eagan 99-82 in a dual meet held concurrently at Kenwood Trail. After the Sept. 17 meets, Lakeville North led the conference at 4-0, with Rosemount, Prior Lake, Lakeville South and Eagan tied for second at 3-1. Teams returned to conference action on Thursday night, after this edition went to press. Four of the pool records were set by Lakeville North swimmers, with Rosemount swimmers setting the other two. Lakeville North senior Zoya Wahlstrom set pool records in the 50-yard freestyle (24.61 seconds) and 100 butterfly (56.27). Wahlstrom also anchored North’s winning 400 freestyle relay, which won in a pool-record 3:35.50. Junior Brenna Smith, senior Alena Bodnaruk and eighth-grader Elsa Litteken swam the first three legs of the relay. Wahlstrom, Litteken, senior Aslin Rose and junior Emily Spencer set school and pool records with their winning time of 1:48.54 in the 200 medley relay. Rosemount’s Megan Wenman set pool records in the 200 freestyle (1:53.33) and 100 freestyle (52.08). “I truly don’t recall a

meet where I’ve ever seen kids perform at this level at this time of the year,” Lakeville North coach Dan Schneider said. Each team won six events, but Lakeville North’s depth proved decisive. North outscored Rosemount 11-5 in the 50 freestyle where Wahlstrom, Emily Spencer and Elizabeth Thull finished first, second and fifth. Litteken, Kira Quittem and Ashley Van Dyne took the top three places in the 100 backstroke, giving North a 13-3 point advantage in the event. Bodnaruk was the 200 individual medley winner in 2:11.45 and added a second place in the 500 freestyle.

South-Eagan Lakeville South swimmers finished first in all 11 swimming events in its victory over Eagan. The Cougars led 99-57 before swimming exhibition in the final two events. First-place finishers for South included Rachael Streit in the 200 freestyle (2:02.87) and 500 freestyle (5:31.79), Shea Bougie in the 200 individual medley (2:14.00) and 100 backstroke (1:00.85), Jacqueline Johnson in the 50 freestyle (25.54), Brianna Alexander in the 100 butterfly (59.27) and Jarin Simpson in the 100 freestyle (56.26). Alexander had the fastest time in the 100 breaststroke at 1:08.65 but was not credited with a firstplace finish because the Cougars were swimming exhibition at that time.

Panthers’ defense baffles opponents North 4-0 after homecoming shutout of Jefferson by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Quarterback Drew Stewart’s 61-yard touchdown run pushed North’s lead to 21-0 by halftime. In the second half, Conner Flack caught touchdown passes of 12 yards from Stewart and 29 yards from Matthew Schiefelbein. Jefferson went into the game 2-1 overall and undefeated in the South Suburban at 2-0. Now, Lakeville North (4-0) and Rosemount (3-0) are the only two teams that are undefeated in league play. North will play at Rosemount in the regular-season finale on Oct. 16. Prior Lake is 2-2 overall. The Lakers lost to defending state Class 6A champion Eden Prairie in the second week of the season and last week fell at home to Rosemount 24-13. The Panthers and Lakers met twice last season, once in the regular season and once in the playoffs. Prior Lake won the regular-season game 10-6 but North got revenge in the Class 6A quarterfinals with a 23-3 victory.

Lakeville North’s defense continued to dominate opponents in a 34-0 victory over Bloomington Jefferson last Friday in the Panthers’ homecoming football game. It was the third shutout in four games for the unbeaten (4-0) Panthers, who will play at Prior Lake at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, in a duel between the 2012 South Suburban Conference co-champions. North has not allowed a point in 14 of the 16 quarters it has played this season. Eastview scored 10 points in the first half of a Sept. 13 game that Lakeville North went on to win 33-10. Senior running back Jamiah Newell put the Panthers up early against Jefferson, scoring on a 39-yard run in the first quarter and a 2-yard run early in the secMike Shaughnessy ond quarter. He finished with 191 yards Email on 17 carries.


The high school volleyball season is about one month old, and already three teams have been No. 1 in the state Class 3A rankings. Eagan is the latest to hold the hot potato, moving to the top of the poll following its victory at the Apple Valley Eagle Invitational last weekend. The Wildcats defeated Chaska, the previous No. 1 team, in the semifinals before beating Blaine 22-25, 2522, 15-7 in the championship match Saturday afternoon. The Wildcats have been trying for years to win the Eagle Invitational. They have been in it every year since 1998 but had gone 0-for-15 before finally breaking through. “We called it the Eagan Curse,” senior captain Taylr McNeil said. “We talked about it before every match, and we didn’t want it to happen again this year.” Eagan (16-0) defeated Alexandria and Eden Prairie in the first two rounds of the tournament before its 25-21, 25-22 victory over Chaska in the semifinals. It’s the Wildcats’ second tournament championship of the season; they won the Shakopee Invitational in early September. Taylr McNeil was the Wildcats’ standout player

The Eagle Invitational, probably the state’s most competitive regular-season tournament, completed its 36th edition. In 34 of the previous 35 years, the eventual large-school state champion played in the Eagle Invitational – but didn’t necessarily win it. Eagan, for example, won state championships in 2001 and 2003 but didn’t win the Eagle Invitational either of those years. Defending state Class AAA champion Lakeville North also defended its title at the Eagle Invitational. The Panthers were 2-2 this year and finished seventh. After defeating Waconia in the first round, North lost in straight

sets to Marshall, the topranked team in Class 2A. North (14-3) also fell to Hopkins before defeating Lakeville South 25-19, 25-19 in the seventh-place match. Lakeville South (810) went 1-3 in the tournament.

SSC standings Eagan, Prior Lake and Lakeville North were tied for first place in South Suburban Conference volleyball after all three won conference matches Tuesday night. The leaders have yet to play each other. Eagan goes to Lakeville North on Oct. 15 and is home against Prior Lake on Oct. 15. Prior Lake and Lakeville North play Oct. 1 at North.

The tree allows people to bring a photo of a pet or animal they’d like to remember. A card with the pet’s name is made and the photo and name will be placed on the tree. There will be a petting zoo, performance by the children’s choir and an appearance by the Dakota County mounted patrol. Two $50 awards will be given for creative costuming: animal costumes on humans (young and young-at-heart) and costumes on pets.

to support the decision for an unmarked roundabout circle. The engineers said there will also be signs before the roundabout that help guide drivers into the correct lane, and noted the county is planning an educational campaign to provide drivers information about navigating through multiple lane roundabouts. Sebastian said the county could always add pavement markers in the roundabout once it opens if problems arise. Council members also expressed concerns about a proposed detour route taking drivers south to County Road 70 because it is unlikely many will use it. They instead urged the county to consider routes that keep traffic farther north. Dakota County Transportation Director Mark Krebsbach said the county will explore options and include the effect that routes will have on local streets. He added the county might make revisions to routes as needed during construction. The county plans to complete property appraisals for right of way this month and award a contract for the project by June 2014, with utility and off-road construction occurring next summer and fall. Heavy construction and road closures are planned in 2015.

to complete construction and confuse drivers with changing alternate driving routes. Lakeville City Council members expressed concern about the county’s plans to open the roundabout in 2015 without pavement markings on the interior circle. Dakota County Engineer Brian Sorenson said data has shown that more crashes occur in multilane roundabouts that have the circle pavement marked than in those without any pavement markers. City Council members expressed concern drivers new to the multilane roundabout would be confused and it could cause accidents. “I’ve never driven on a roundabout without markings,” City Council Member Doug Anderson said, describing himself as “skeptical” about the proposal. He said he did not want Lakeville being used as a test for a consultant’s concept. “I’m not sure our citizens would be comfortable with that,” Anderson said. Sebastian said project planners are not just “throwing it out there and hoping it works,” but have relied upon consultant’s data that shows leaving multilane roundabout circles unmarked results in fewer accidents because drivers are more likely to yield to each other.

just starting the discussion about the options with MnDOT advisory committees. “This coming month, they will look at and dive through the information,” Solberg said. “It’s a substantial task for the committees to undertake.” There are nearly 50 objectives related to cost, safety and travel time for committee members to apply to their decisions, according to Solberg. He said they want to make sure they get the best value for their investment. A report about the preferred option is expected to be complete by March 2014. Eagan City Hall is at 3830 Pilot Knob Road.

played. That’s not the only potential project MnDOT and the Dakota County Regional Rail Authority have that attendees will be treated to during the event that will have no formal presentation. Seven different concepts have been reviewed for improving bus access from Cedar Avenue to the Cedar Grove Transit Station. The ideas range from improved signal times to bus-only access ramps that could cut as many as nine minutes from the current 30-minute trip time of the recently launched Metro Transit Red Line from the Apple Valley Transit Station to the Mall of America. Neither of the proposed projects – estimated to be as high as $50 million for managed, contraflow lanes and $30 million for improved Cedar Grove access – has dedicated funding sources.

Director of Special Education Mary Kreger reported school nurses worked throughout the summer at Camp Propel, on back-toschool days, at immunization review and vision screenings. Special education staff members began the year serving 4,151 students from birth through age 21. Special Education continues to partner with the Teaching and Learning Department to ensure all students receive high-quality, research-based instruction. Compliance continues to be a focus to ensure all state and federal special education rules and regulations are being followed. The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) issued its report in June and noted 65 citations. Kreger said the district has until May 1, 2014 to fix the citations and bring files into compliance. Special education teachers are participating in Reading Recovery training and Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI). Kreger noted there are 49 teachers at 13 schools co-teaching with general education. Kreger said this year Dakota Ridge will host the educational services for a chemical dependency program the district is obligated to provide. Director of Elementary Education Julie Olson shared that elementary schools welcomed 11,812 students; up 172 students from a year ago. There are 1,784 kindergarten students with 46 Kindergarten Plus classes. She reported 60 percent of kindergartners now have a full-day experience. Olson said the three magnets schools are beginning their sixth year and that all the magnet schools have waitlists. She reported on the extensive professional development in literacy that continues to take place, the success of the first year of Camp Propel and the second year of August literacy assessment days. Director of Secondary Education Mark Parr provided a snapshot of the secondary schools. He reported high schools have been busy since mid-August and that sports practices were adjusted to early morning or evening due to the extreme heat. Parr attended most of the secondary school orientations and open houses. He said middle school enrollment was at 6,100 students; 200 students above projections. High school enrollment was at 8,300 students; 23 more than projected. Secondary schools are continuing with the development and refinement of the Common Formative Assessment process in collaboration with the Teaching and Learning Department and will continue to maximize the use of data analysis and instructional alignment days. Parr said work will also continue to further strengthen the secondary coaching model as it is a critical component in enabling teachers to have even more impact on higher student achievement. Counselors are underway with the development of a common six-year individual plan entitled “My Plan” to help students define a pathway for college and career readiness by graduation. Parr presented background information on the district’s past principals’ evaluation instruments and noted that during the 2011-12 school year the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) collaborated with state principals’ organizations and other state leaders, including School Board member Jackie Magnuson who co-chaired the committee, to craft a new model based on principal core competencies as well as School Principal Leadership Standards. The MDE then published a model evaluation tool. District administration met with the Principals Association of Rosemount (PAR) to develop an instrument that would suit district needs based on the MDE model. The model is both formative and summative, and consists of principals and their directors arriving at goals in the areas of instructional leadership and core competencies with student achievement the focal point. In 2011, the Legislature enacted laws that established principal and teacher accountability. Principal accountability requirements apply for this school year and teacher accountability requirements apply beginning in 2014-15. Woodland Elementary School Principal and PAR President Lisa Carlson reported on the legislation and its purpose, which is to enhance principals’ leadership skills, and support and improve teaching practices, school performance and student achievement. She reviewed the required components for the annual evaluation. Rosemount High School Assistant Principal and PAR’s former Past President Kim Budde described the model created for District 196 principals, which was based on research and best practices. The evaluation requires administrators to set two goals; one tied directly to the school’s site goal that measures student achievement. The second goal is a professional development goal that begins by using Kim Marshall’s principals’ evaluation rubric for reflection in six areas. Olson said that during the 2011 special session, legislators also approved statewide standards for teacher development and evaluation, and requirements. Under the new legislation all public schools are required to have a teacher development and evaluation plan that meets the statutory requirements by fall 2014. Olson noted the plan can be locally developed by the board and teachers, or it can be the state plan, or it can be a hybrid of the state plan with some locally determined elements. The plan must include a three-year professional review cycle with an individual growth and development plan; a peer review process and the opportunity to participate in a professional learning community. It must include supports and evaluations of all probationary teachers and be based on professional teaching standards. A core group of teachers and administrators attended state-sponsored meetings to clarify requirements of the legislation. A larger committee of teachers and administrators will work throughout this year to create the District 196 Teacher Development and Evaluation Plan. We currently have strong mentoring and support for new teachers, administrative observation and evaluation based on Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching (which was identified in the state plan as a positive model), peer review support through Q Comp; strong professional learning communities and professional development support. Magnuson commented on the state-level evaluation committees she participated on and the more than 95-page state plan. Director of Teaching and Learning Steve Troen said the purpose of the annual report is to inform district residents about student achievement and developments in curriculum and instructional practices from the previous year (Exhibit G). The annual report contains a variety of detailed information including: progress in updating and revising specific district curriculum areas; results on state and national norm-referenced tests, and responsibilities, activities and membership of the Curriculum and Instruction Advisory Council (CIAC). Troen highlighted four areas included in the report: curriculum development; the K-12 Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Committee; educational equity, and district assessments. There is a curriculum review process for each content area which is revised on a rotating basis to keep curriculum current and has three phases: 1) program design; 2) implementation, and 3) monitor and adjust. There were a number of curriculum areas in the active stages of the cycle during 2012-13. In the design phase were language arts for grades prek-12, health for grades 6-12 and social studies for grades 6-8. In the implementation phase, support was provided for science in grades k-12 and English language arts for grades prek-12. The K-12 Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Committee focused 2012-13 professional development efforts on formative assessment strategies, which included a comprehensive literacy assessment system at the elementary level and an emphasis on common formative assessments at the secondary level; a continued emphasis on essential learning in all content areas, and developing a systemic response when students experience difficulty. Educational equity is defined as raising the achievement for all students. Last year all schools once again incorporated racial equity achievement goals and equity program target goals into their site plans and closely monitored progress. Troen said District 196 administered a number of assessments and that results on the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) indicate the distance by which District 196 students outperformed the state average has widened. Results of the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), ACT and GRAD Test are also reported. The district average ACT score was 24. Troen announced the CIAC is scheduled to review the report at its September 16 meeting. Any revisions recommended by the CIAC will be presented at the next regular School Board meeting when the board is expected to take action on the report. Berenz noted that middle school test scores have improved. The change to the middle school model has students spending more time in the core subjects. Director of Human Resources Tom Pederstuen highlighted terms from the two-year collective bargaining agreement with Dakota County United Educators (DCUE), representing teachers and school nurses (Exhibit H). The agreement is effective July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2015 and terms include: • Increasing the salary schedules by 2 percent each year, with an additional .71 percent to the top step for the first year and .6 percent the second year; • Increasing the longevity schedules by $63 to $190 for the first year and $62 to $187 the second year, depending upon level; • Increasing contributions to health insurance by 2 percent the first year and 1 percent the second; • Increasing dental insurance contributions by 2 percent each year; • Increasing the 403(b) matching contribution by $100 per year at each level, and • Other minor language modifications. Pederstuen noted the total cost of the contract is within the parameters set by the School Board, recognized the diligence of the bargaining teams and asked the board to approve the agreement. Motion by Magnuson, seconded by Huusko and carried, with five members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to approve the agreement. Motion by Huusko, seconded by Roseen and carried, with five members voting in favor and no member voting in opposition, to adjourn the meeting at 7 p.m. Published in Apple Valley, Burnsville/Eagan, Lakeville September 27, 2013 29889
