Avoids Cedar Avenue realignment by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Under a revised concept, Airlake Airport’s runway could expand without realigning Cedar Avenue. The draft concept, to be proposed for the airport’s 2035 Long-term Comprehensive Plan, extends Airlake Airport’s single runway by 751 feet, increasing

its length to 4,850 feet. Neil Ralston, airport planner for the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said the change enhances safety and allows aircraft to carry more passengers or additional fuel. For a typical small business jet, the added fuel capacity could mean another 60-90 more minutes of flight time, Ralston said. The airport’s 2008 plan was to extend the runway to 5,000 feet but required the realignment of Cedar Avenue, adding significant costs.

Under the Federal Aviation Administration’s 2012 land use policy update for runway protection zones (two-dimensional trapezoidal safety areas identified at the ends of runways to protect property and people), implementing that plan became more difficult, expensive and complicated. “Back in 2008, rerouting Cedar Avenue through the extended runway’s protection zone was acceptable,� Ralston said. “However, with the updated guidance in place,

alternatives to rerouting Cedar Avenue through the extended runway’s RPZ would need to be studied and the FAA would have to formally approve a realignment running through the RPZ.� The revised concept being proposed uses FAA airport design standards, which allows the existing runway protection zone to stay in place and considers Cedar Avenue an existing condition within it. Under the proposal, a gravel road in Eureka Township, 225th Street,

Acreage formerly in Eureka Township but amicably annexed into Lakeville in 2006 has recently been approved for development. Launch Park First Addition, located east of Cedar Avenue and Eureka Township’s Airlake Airport and just north of the Lakeville/Eureka border, will include two 46-acre lots within a 99-acre parent parcel. The property’s first development is a 2 8 6 , 0 0 0 - s q u a re - fo o t multi-tenant warehouse/ office building that will be partially occupied by Menasha Packaging, an existing merchandise packaging manufacturer in Airlake Industrial Park. Menasha is leasing 150,000 square feet of space to expand its Lakeville operation.

The project includes the partial construction of a new road, 222nd Street, east of Cedar Avenue, and will be a temporary culde-sac on the property’s east boundary where the building will be located. The road will eventually extend further east. “This is an exciting period of time that we’ve had the opportunity to work on this project,� Lakeville Community Development Director Dave Olson told the Lakeville City Council at its April 3 meeting. He said several concepts for the property have been proposed, and described this one as one of the better-quality proposals considered. The building is proposed to use colored concrete exterior materials, allowed by special action of the city in anticipation of changing city ordinance to allow the material. “It’s becoming a more See LAUNCH, 17A

Those candidates selected to continue in the hiring process will spend the day in the district April 21, touring buildings and meeting with various groups. District 194 Communications Director Amy Olson described a busy day for the semifinalists. She said they would meet with groups that include: union representatives of groups that include teachers, clerical, custodial staff, student nutrition and non-affiliated workers; District 194 principals and cabinet members; the business community and parents and the community at large. Information about the time and location of the public meeting was not available at press time. Board member interviews were to take place Friday afternoon or evening, according to Olson who added the schedule was to be decided based on the number of candidates.

District 194 School Board members easily agreed Tuesday night on about 10 questions they will pose to superintendent candidate finalists when they interview them April 21. Board members suggested their own questions and drew ideas from a list of 25 questions suggested by search consultant firm Ray & Associates. The inquiries generally cover topics that include leadership, accomplishments, goals and finances. Board members individually reviewed and rated multiple applications and viewed video-taped segments of the applicants on April 12, then choose semifinalists to interview in person, which Board Chair Michelle Volk previously said was expected to be 3-4 candidates.

Lewis’ first 100 days on the Hill eventful Congressman discusses his first months in office at chamber luncheon by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Though Congress failed to pass the American Health Care Act, U.S. Rep. Jason Lewis, RWoodbury, stands by his support of the bill. “I will be the first to admit our side did not do a good job of messaging,� said Lewis, speaking April 10 at a Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce event at Valleywood Golf Course in Apple Valley. The health care bill, which was withdrawn in March after failing to gain enough House Republican support, is something the first-term congressman believes would have worked to resolve the “crisis in health care� brought on by the Affordable Care Act enacted during the

Obama administration. “I spoke passionately on the floor about this — I stand by my support,� he said. “The status quo is untenable.� Health care was one of several topics Minnesota’s 2nd District representative discussed at the chamber event. His talk focused on his first 100 days in office, touching on tax reform, transportation funding and other political matters, along with some aspects of everyday life as a member of Congress. During his first few weeks in Washington, living conditions proved less than ideal. Unable to immediately secure an apartment, Lewis slept on an air mattress in his office. He’s since found living quarters within walking distance of Capitol Hill. One thing that struck him as pleasantly surprising during his first months in Washington, Lewis said, is how many young people are working on Capitol Hill in positions of influence. “Twenty-five-year-olds

are running the world,� said Lewis, noting that his own staff’s legislative director is 28. “These kids are wonderful — they are smart and competent and great. ... That’s a pretty good feeling: There’s hope for the future.� On the political end, Lewis said that, along with health care reform, his chief priorities are tax reform and transportation and infrastructure improvements, specifically as a means of spurring economic growth. “Economic growth solves almost all the problems,� he said. “It’s all about making commerce and business flow more smoothly and getting a rising tide of prosperity in the 2nd District.� About a dozen protesters had assembled outside the clubhouse at the city-run Valleywood Golf Course prior to Lewis’ talk, holding signs and breaking into song as the congressman entered the building. Members of the group told a reporter they want-

St. Paul public schools hire ISD 191’s Gothard Superintendent’s time in District 191 was transformational by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Searching for a “healer� to lead their district, St. Paul School Board members voted 5-2 Tuesday to hire Joe Gothard as superintendent. Gothard knows the “healer� role well. In July 2013 he became superintendent of Burnsville-Eagan-Savage District 191, which was at a crossroads after the often-turbulent tenure of his predecessor, Randall Clegg. Now Gothard is head-

ing to Minnesota’s second-largest school district, which has been without a permanent chief since June 2016, when the board bought out ex-Superintendent Valeria Silva’s contract. At a press conference Tuesday, a reporter asked if Gothard truly wants the top job in a St. Paul district known for strife, controversy and a School Board shakeup in the last election. “Absolutely,� said Gothard, 45. “You go through a lot of reflection, personally and professionally, when faced with an opportunity of this magnitude. I’ve been very fortunate to have almost four very successful years here in Burnsville-Eagan-

Savage ISD 191 — creating relationships, putting systems in place, making sure there are clear lines of communication, instilling confidence, trust, belief and hope — in a community that really needed it.� The St. Paul board chose Gothard over a second finalist, Cheryl Logan, chief academic support officer for the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, schools. “I know this is one of the most challenging jobs in the state of Minnesota and maybe even beyond,� said Gothard, who will go from a district with 9,500 students to one with more than 39,000. “And I, throughout my entire career, have taken on challenges. I think the results, I won’t say they speak for

themselves, but I’ve been known to not shy away from challenges. I continue to learn, reflect, grow, each and every day. I will not come in and say I have all the answers, but I will say I’m committed to finding them.� St. Paul Board Member Mary Vanderwert, who visited District 191, told the Pioneer Press that Gothard’s co-workers described him as a “healer� and “unifier.� “In four short years in Burnsville,� Gothard has “led significant culture change and made some pretty significant structural changes without a lot of conflict,� Vanderwert said

in a Minnesota Public Radio story. Gothard’s time in District 191 has been transformational. He led successful levy votes and oversaw a redesign of district schools while earning two stellar performance reviews from the School Board. Replacing Clegg, who had received a substandard review from the board, Gothard was tasked with developing a school reorganization plan that led to a successful referendum in February 2015. By comfortable margins, voters approved a $65 million building bond, $52.5 million of which

The redesign dubbed VisionOne91 came to fruition this year, with a fouryear high school and new middle and elementary school grade configurations. Instructional technology was expanded and new career pathway programs were introduced at the new-look high school, among other changes. Gothard said one of his next tasks is working with the District 191 board on a leadership transition plan.

Opinion

Lawmakers take key first step with transportation funding proposals Minnesota lawmakers have had difficulty in turning major transportation legislation into law. It’s been nearly a decade since the Legislature has successfully sent a long-term transportation funding package to the governor’s desk. After the 2016 legislative session ended without a transportation bill, many candidates – now legislators – promised in their campaigns 2017 would be different. Without additional investment, the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s annual construction budget could drop by as much as one third in 2018 – at a time when additional investments are necessary to address deteriorating infrastructure and make strategic enhancements to our transportation system. According to Gov. Mark Dayton’s administration, Minnesota is facing an $18 billion transportation funding gap over the next 20 years. In late January, Dayton released a two-year, $45.8 billion budget proposal that included an increase in the state’s gas tax, a measure that Dayton said would cost the average Minnesotan driver $75 a year. Forty percent of new revenues in Dayton’s budget would go to counties, cities

ECM Editorial and townships to repair or replace 1,700 miles of roads and 235 bridges. New funding for road and bridge construction would be provided by initiating a 6.5 percent sales tax on gasoline, bringing the current 1.25 percent base tax on vehicle registration fees to 1.5 percent, and raising car registration fees by $10. Many Democrats favor raising the gas tax, currently at 28.5 cents per gallon. That’s sure to be a point of contention moving forward. The governor has argued that without a dedicated funding source like the gas tax, any new transportation spending would be on the budget-cutting chopping block if a recession hits and lawmakers have to start trimming. We agree with the Republican plan to use general fund revenues generated from the statewide sales tax on auto parts and rental cars to help fund increased investment in our transportation system. It’s a logical first step. Existing revenues that would be shifted from the general fund in the 2018-19 biennium include $296 million from the auto parts sales tax, $64 million from the motor vehicle lease sales tax, $52 million

from the sales tax on auto repairs, and $37 million from the auto rental sales tax. Transportation-related revenue should fund transportation projects. Dedicating the revenues by statute would free the Legislature from having to take action every year to prioritize transportation funding. Does this approach take a little discipline from lawmakers not to dip into the pot of money down the road? Yes, but it takes a lot less discipline than a year-toyear effort. And in the past, those efforts have failed. The omnibus transportation bill approved in late March by the House Transportation Finance Committee boosts state spending on roads and bridges by roughly $2 billion over the next two years and by $6 billion over the next 10 years through a shift in general fund dollars and significant borrowing. That level of funding is long overdue. House Republicans would not raise the state’s gas tax to provide a dedicated boost in transportation dollars, an approach favored by House and Senate DFLers and Dayton. Compromise on a smaller gas tax increase with redirection of auto-related

taxes to transportation would be one way to get things moving this session. Democrats contend the Republican plan would also deal a significant blow to transit across the state, especially in the Twin Cities metro. Now is not the time to be eliminating transit needs. The Senate’s transportation bill dedicates $1.4 billion less over the next 10 years. That difference with the House transportation plan will have to be reconciled before lawmakers can come to the bargaining table with Dayton. Minnesotans depend upon a safe, efficient and reliable transportation network to support the movement of people and commerce. Lawmakers and Dayton must come together to show the people of Minnesota that its government can deliver on this core function of state government. An opinion of the ECM Editorial Board.

One day, one great way to help students and yourself by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

In a single day later in April, you can listen to and help some of the most courageous, eloquent high school students from all over Minnesota. How? By volunteering to judge their presentations at the April 26-27 Minnesota Association of Alternative Programs STARS conference in Bloomington. This is one of the most emotionally powerful and, ultimately, uplifting events I attend each year. Before saying more about the conference, let’s hear from students. Here’s a portion of an award-winning speech by Jessenia, a student at Ivan Sand Community High School in Elk River: “During the summer after 10th grade, my dad passed away from a rare type of cancer and his passing destroyed me. ... I felt abandoned again. ... I still remember that day like it was yesterday and it still hurts just as bad as when it happened. My dad was my hero. … After losing my dad, I couldn’t stay at home. I couldn’t stay with my mom because we did not get along. ...

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan

“I moved in with my oldest brother. ... I remember sitting at dinner with my mom one night and telling her how much life sucked and how miserable I was. … I’m so blessed to have a mom who didn’t give up on me, even when I gave up on myself. My mom told me I needed to stay in school and that I could not drop out. I was very mad at my mom at the time, but thank goodness she was watching out for me. ... “I did not want to go to an ALC because all I thought was it was with people I didn’t want to be around. … At Ivan Sand the teachers give you emotional, verbal and any kind of support you need, and for that I’m blessed. … I now know what it’s like not to give up on someone even when they give up on themself (sic). I can’t count how many times I’ve said

‘screw it,’ but the teachers are right over my shoulder ready to help me.” Here’s a portion of a speech by Aaron, a student at Northwest Passage High School, a charter school in Coon Rapids: “Before I had found my current charter school and MAAP STARS, my life was dark, the everlasting pitch abyss of the night. I never would be the leader and person I am today without STARS. Never be able to have the friends I do now. “While I was growing up through traditional schooling, I was drifting along. Letting others insult and spread rumors about me, expecting it all to get better one day. I was pulled down again and again with despair that I began to believe that nothing will get better. I even was led to bringing others down to feel better, but I wasn’t proud, I hated myself. I was not the Aaron I wanted to be, I was scared to go to school, back to where I wouldn’t find happiness.” Many of the presentations are just as poignant and powerful as these two. The conference features individual and group presentations in areas including entrepreneurship, interviewing, community service, video production and personal

reflections. MAAP is seeking volunteer judges for either or both days. There are no special qualifications except a willingness to listen and comment briefly on student presentations. You can apply here: http://bit. ly/2nJEaRX. The conference is coordinated by the remarkable Patti Haasch. She’s a veteran Minnesota educator, now retired, who has devoted her life to students facing enormous challenges. For more information about the conference, visit http://bit.ly/2nDwJes. Read full copies of several award-winning speeches at http://bit.ly/2oCt2dq. Please consider judging. Do it for the students. Do it to remind yourself about challenges some young people face. Do it to learn how some of Minnesota’s finest educators help young people overcome obstacles and blossom like the most beautiful spring flowers.

We can do this

We know what factors cause this, both natural and human. We can fix this. We must switch to sustainable methods of providing the energy that makes modern life so enjoyable. We can do this, and it will save money and create more jobs than business as usual with fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are a wonderful gift because they have locked in their molecular structure some harmful things from the ancient past that, like Pandora’s Box, are not good for humanity to let out again. People of faith are standing up and speaking out that we must respect this life-sustaining gift for what it is by leaving it alone. We can solve this. We will not make life harder. We will not hurt the economy. We must choose right in support of all life on Earth. Interfaith Creation Care of the South Metro is offering an Earth Day opportunity at Shepherd of the Lake church in Prior Lake to learn more about the Economics of Sustainability. On Saturday, April 22, at 10 a.m., Jay Coggins, U of M professor of economics, is presenting, “We Can Do This: A Clean Energy Future!” More information is at the church’s website.

To the editor: The Bell Curve of weather phenomena is shifting warmer: more frequent megastorms, Minnesota winters five degrees warmer on average than 1970, more pests surviving warmer winters, tornadoes coming earlier in the season, the first-ever tornado in Massachusetts (and they’ve been watching since the 1600s). I say, “Toto … we’re not in Kansas anymore,” but ironically Minnesota’s climate is becoming like Kansas. I wonder what will become of our wealth and health because all around the world people have settled and built lives around the stability of climate, and now that stability has been BILL MIDDLECAMP shattered.

Among the concerns they wanted to hear from Lewis about was Russia’s interference with our election.

Unfortunately, there are still 250 students in District 196 who have little to eat on weekends. It is hard to imagine a young person going hungry and not enjoying good weekend meals. With Easter coming, many of us look forward to enjoying a wonderful dinner with family and friends. It is a time when we give thanks for our blessings. At the beginning of the school year the Foundation was concerned about the more than 950 students facing hunger in our community. Thanks to support from churches, businesses and individual donations, we have been able to reduce this number to 250 students. We have a long way to go. Each one of these students is very important.

Education Local education businesses honored A select group of local prekindergarten early education programs recently earned their Parent Aware Ratings, which lets area parents know that they are using kindergarten readiness best practices. “These folks really deserve a lot of credit for doing the right thing for Minnesota’s youngest children,â€? said Ericca Maas, executive director of Parent Aware for School Readiness (PASR), a nonprofit that supports the ratings. “It’s one thing to make claims about quality, but these providers are proving that they are actually using best practices.â€?

Burnsville choir director faces sex charges by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

him to save the photos without notifying Akervik. During their online conversation, Akervik admitted to “taking the virginity of a 15- or 16-year-old� and made comments leading to possible identification of the male student, also from BHS. Police contacted the boy, who told them Akervik had invited him to his Burnsville apartment in December 2016. As the two were watching TV, Akervik started kissing the 16-year-old and engaged in a sex act with him. Burnsville police arrested Akervik at the high school without incident on April 10. Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 said it received a complaint on Akervik on Saturday, April 8, and immediately began an investigation. KSTP News reported that Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis suspended Akervik from his part-time job as junior high choir director. Akervik reportedly has a degree from St. Olaf College and worked for the Minneapolis Public Schools from 2010 to 2013. Akervik’s third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The electronic solicitation charge is punishable by up to three years. Akervik made his first appearance in Dakota County District Court Wednesday. Bail was set at $150,000 without conditions and $100,000 with conditions. His next court appearance is May 11.

A Burnsville High School choir director faces felony charges for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student and sending nude photos of himself to another student. Erik Michael Akervik, 29, was charged Wednesday with third-degree criminal sexual conduct and electronic solicitation of a child. Akervik has been a BHS music teacher since August 2013. “It is a felony under Minnesota law for a teacher to have sexual relations with a student who is 16 or 17 years old, if the teacher is more than 48 months older than the student,� Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said in a news release. “Criminal activity of this nature is a significant breach of trust of students, their parents and the school community.� The county attorney’s office gave the following account. On Monday, April 10, a 15-year-old male student told a BHS school resource officer that Akervik had sent him sexually inappropriate communications. The student said Akervik had added him as a friend on several social media apps and websites about a year before. Akervik had been communicating with the boy via Snapchat about three weeks before the boy spoke with the officer. Akervik allegedly sent a message saying, “I’d like to get to know you closer and better.� Over two or three days of online conversation, the boy received nude photos from Akervik. The boy later acquired a Contact John Gessner at john.gessner@ third-party phone app that would allow ecm-inc.com or 952-846-2031.

Group lobbying for increased funding by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The disability services industry is in a bit of a hiring crisis. According to industry professionals, the main issue is pay. Providers such as Midwest Social Services, which has offices in Eagan, offer training and employment services for people with disabilities. They have found challenges in both attracting and keeping employees. Midwest Social Services had the worst turnover in its history in 2016. Almost 70 out of 160 employees left, according to Lyth Hartz, president of Midwest Social Services. Most of the turnover is at the entry level. “We’re fully staffed now (in Eagan), but it’s very likely that will change soon,� Hartz said. “I would say our industry is in crisis. Our agency competes well, but our industry doesn’t compete well with other industries.� When they have an opening, it takes a while to find a good candidate and “sometimes they leave in a few weeks,� Hartz said. While it can be reward-

ing work, it’s also challenging. “You have people’s lives in your hands,� Hartz said. “They’re vulnerable adults. If staff members are trying to raise a family, it can get hard. Many employees have other jobs.� Midwest Social Services invests in their employees who then build relationships with their clients. Building a relationship takes time and when their employees leave, the process starts over. “When it’s changing all the time, you can imagine how that feels on the people we’re helping,� Hartz said. An increase in pay would help retain employees, so industry professionals are asking the Minnesota Legislature for help. Their funding is regulated by the Minnesota Legislature and the Department of Human Services sets their rates. Pay is tied to state reimbursement rates set by lawmakers. According to Mike Burke, the president of the Minnesota Organization for Habilitation and Rehabilitation, there are an estimated 8,700 unfilled direct support positions in Minnesota right now. The number is growing as pay rates continue to lag behind other industries,

Burke said. The Best Life Alliance, a Minnesota coalition of more than 130 organizations, is asking state legislators to pass a 4 percent wage increase for direct support professionals in 2017 and again in 2018. “Nothing is ever dead in the Minnesota Legislature, but right now it’s not alive,� Hartz said. “Who knows if it will be resurrected, but it looks like it’s not going to happen. Full disclosure here, we need a lot more than 4 percent. That would still leave us short for being competitive with other industries. It’s a statewide issue.� According to the Best Life Alliance, waiver growth has increased about 10.3 percent from 2005 to 2015, compared to a 23.3 percent rate of inflation. Support professionals provide skills training, employment services, community involvement, behavioral supports and life enrichment activities to more than 26,000 individuals with disabilities in Minnesota. They help people with disabilities find jobs within the community and guide them into being more independent. Contact Andy Rogers at andy.rogers@ecm-inc.com.

Rosemount security worker has four-legged helper Gordon Finley and Frankie keep students safe at high school by Paul Rignell SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Retired after nearly 20 years as a U.S. Marine and a later career in information technology, Minnesota native Gordon Finley now works part time weekdays in a security role at Rosemount High School. As part of his daily shift, it is Finley’s responsibility to ensure the students disperse peacefully from the school halls after their final class hour ends at 2:15 p.m. He secures all doors that are supposed to be locked after school hours. There is also some desk work where he records student attendance data that he gathers from substitute teachers working any given day (regular faculty record their own attendance data). Unlike many other school security officers, Finley works with a partner – and a protector. Finley’s partner is the fourlegged Frankie, a border collie-springer spaniel mix who has been part of Finley’s family and home in Eagan for five years. Frankie has accompanied his owner to work throughout this school year after the dog was certified as a service animal last July through Patriot Assistance Dogs, a training program based in Detroit Lakes. The organization recently received a $10,000 gift from a group of philanthropic motorcycle riders in Zimmerman. Founded by trainer Linda Wiedewitsch, the PAD program serves to prepare dogs for aiding veterans who have been diagnosed with battling post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury or a related psychiatric issue. Finley says it was clear

Medical staff from the Veterans Affairs health care system in Minneapolis later diagnosed Finley with PTSD. Frankie has been a good friend to Finley throughout their years together, but the bond has grown stronger now that the dog is certified to accompany his proud owner to work and virtually everywhere else, including meals at restaurants and most return appointments at the VA. An exception to their routine of being together at almost every moment happened when Finley was at the VA for a recent colonoscopy, he said. Having survived military service that involved him in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Finley says that life back in Minnesota felt deeply

Finley adds that he was not friendly to the idea of hosting a dog when a daughter brought Frankie, who had been living in a shelter, to the family home. “I told my wife (Kathy) I didn’t want a dog, but he jumped on my lap and we’ve been friends ever since,� Finley said. “This is my buddy, my pal. He puts a big smile on my face.� Frankie helps his owner to overcome the depression, and the dog is dedicated to its trained role of service. “If I get really depressed, he’ll jump on me. He wakes me up when I’m having nightmares. He picks up on (cues) faster than I do,� Finley said. Their partnership is one See DOG, 13A

Softball preview: half of SSC teams have new coaches Defending champion Eagan has no shortage of challengers by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Until its teams get a few weeks into the season, South Suburban Conference softball might best be noted for a changing of the guard. Five of the conference’s 10 teams have new coaches this season, including defending champion Eagan, where Christian Duncan takes over for Michelle Harrison. Some of the league’s top players from 2016 were back, however, when the South Suburban schedule began this week.

Lakeville North Coach: Michael Schultz (first season). Replacing: Darwin Rasmussen. Last season: 11-13 overall, 2-2 in Class 4A, Section 1. 2017 so far: 1-0 after a 13-9 victory over Apple Valley on Tuesday. Upcoming: at Rosemount on Thursday, home against Lakeville South on Monday, April 17 (both 4:30 p.m.). Outlook: Schultz hopes to lend stability to a North program that has its third varsity head coach in three years. Returnees include senior infielder Amanda Moncelle, who has signed with St. Cloud State, and junior catcher Paige Anderson. Both were honorable mention all-conference last season. Moncelle, senior infielder Hailey Forshee and ninth-grade infielder Jenna Beckstrom each had three hits in the

player.

Farmington Coach: Paul Harrington. Last season: 14-11 overall, second in Class 4A, Section 1. 2017 so far: 2-0 overall, 1-0 in conference. Upcoming: home against Eastview on Thursday, at Apple Valley on Monday, April 17 (both 4:30 p.m.). Outlook: The Tigers were stung by the loss – at least for now – of captain and starting pitcher Maddie Muelken, who is being treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Steffes also was AllState in lacrosse in 2016 and is in her second season as the Tigers’ captain. She was a captain of Farmington’s basketball team last winter and also has competed in cross country.

Gabby Sprang Rosemount Sprang is one of Minnesota’s top softball recruits from the class of 2017, but she actually settled that question years ago. A left-handed pitcher, Sprang verbally committed to Tennessee in 2012 and signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Volunteers last November. Sprang, who has pitched for the Irish varsity since eighth grade, is a three-time all-conference player. She was All-State in 2015 and honorable mention All-State in 2016.

Grace Ennis Trinity Ennis is a three-time All-State runner in cross country after placing ninth in the Class A meet in November. She also helped Trinity to 10th place in the team competition. As a sophomore, she ran for Trinity’s 2014 state Class A championship team, finishing 11th individually. Contact Mike Shaughnessy at mike.shaughnessy@ecminc.com.

Notebook: spring signings abound The spring National Letter of Intent signing period started Wednesday. Here are some of the local high school athletes who were expected to finalize plans for their college futures: Burnsville: Seyi Aguda, track and field, North Dakota; Bailey Medeiros, volleyball, Nyack.

DOG, from 11A of nearly 100 pairings that Patriot Assistance Dogs has assisted with since Wiedewitsch turned her focus to coaching canines for this type of service in 2012. Earlier during a 30-year career of training service animals, Wiedewitsch prepared dogs to assist adult

owners who were visionimpaired or had other physical disabilities. PAD reports that an estimated $10,000 is needed to match and prepare each dog candidate for service to a veteran. A dog undergoes hip and elbow x-rays along with a blood profile and dental and cardiac exams before advancing through the program.

Each PAD dog is microchipped for permanent identification. Training costs along with expenses for supplies (such as collars and leashes) are also part of the $10,000 package. For more about Patriot Assistance Dogs, visit www.patriotassistancedogs.org.

A plan to lengthen the Airlake Airport runway without requiring the realignment of Cedar Avenue is being developed. The draft plan proposes realigning 225th Street, a rural gravel road, around the airspace. AIRPORT, from 1A next month, meetings will be held in the city and township this summer to present the draft comprehensive plan and gather public input. The final draft must be submitted to the Metropolitan Council for review before being adopted by the Metropolitan Airports Commission. If approved, the extension could be built in 2022-2023, according to Ralston. Lakeville Community and Economic Develop-

ment Director Dave Olson said the airport offers businesses in and around Lakeville one more transportation options to and from Lakeville. Olson said some businesses use the airport for company aircraft as well as private planes that are owned by business owners, He said extending the runway to allow for larger aircraft to use the airport may fill a need or benefit that attracts future businesses. Ralston added the proposed plan enhances the operational safety of the

runway. “We see this as a good thing,� Ralston said. “We’re excited to get it out.�

Annexation Discussions have also occurred for about a year between public officials regarding the potential of providing sewer and water to the airport. The Metropolitan Airports Commission has plans to expand the airport to the south, and MAC Reliever Airports Manager Mike Wilson said there is enough space

to double the approximate 100 hangars currently on the site. He said several hanger owners want to add restrooms and have an area to wash aircraft, but the property would need to be annexed into Lakeville to provide water and sewer. Wilson said the MAC would prefer to get the sewer and water lines in prior to constructing the hangars so they do not have to dig up cement. Eureka Township officials have cited concerns about losing the tax base, and Wilson said the MAC

is interested in maintaining the good relationship with the township, so they have been trying to negotiate an amicable annexation plan but have no agreement. Lakeville City Administrator Justin Miller said at an April 4 City Council and Planning Commission meeting that Eureka Township requested Lakeville provide the water and sewer lines, but city officials were hesitant to do that without a longrange annexation agreement for the airport to become part of the city.

Wilson said extending the airport runway is not dependent on the annexation, but they plan to continue seeking options. “We’re hoping to get some utilities available to that area so when the time is right it can expand, and we can build hangars there and folks can get into the facilities they’re seeking with the availability of sewer and water sewer services,� Wilson said. “There’s multiple ways to do that.� Contact Laura Adelmann at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

GOTHARD, from 3A

Burnsville-Eagan-Savage from Madison, Wisconsin. “I’ve learned a great deal through some things that went very well and some things that we struggled with.“ He’s a proponent of “restorative� discipline practices and said some pilot programs are already underway in St. Paul. “But it does take time, it does take training and it does take trust and belief,� Gothard said. His top priorities for the district are creating stability and a “successbased culture� while promoting “what public schools mean to our communities,� Gothard said.

“It’s a wonderful time for us all to put our hands in and say we’re all in for making SPPS the best it can be,� he said. Gothard was assistant superintendent for secondary schools in Madison before coming to Burnsville-Eagan-Savage. He was also a teacher, coach, high school principal and middle school principal in Madison. The St. Paul board and Gothard hope to finalize a job contract around May 1.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville April 14, 2017 17A

MENTOR, from 1A encourage the students to dream big, set goals and work hard for what they want to achieve. She said the sessions are rewarding for mentors and participating in them is fun, easy and does not require a lot of time. Some of her favorite activities include taking the students to tour local colleges and businesses. “Their eyes are as big as saucers, because they’re looking around thinking, ‘I could go here?’ � Peterson said. “And they can, because any kid can do whatever they want if they put their mind to it.� Her first mentee came from a loving home, but her mother was ill and, being raised by her father, she needed a female role model. DENSITY, from 1A Thrive MSP 2040 require Lakeville, defined as a “Suburban Edge� community, to meet density targets and build more apartments and townhomes to provide workforce and life-cycle housing. Lakeville’s planning consultant, Dan Licht, told City Council members during a Feb. 27 work session, Thrive MSP 2040 is “more about social engineering than in the past.� According to the Met Council, Thrive establishes the policy foundation used to complete regional systems and policy plans, development policies and implementation strategies that together form the comprehensive development guide. Detailed policies implementing the Thrive policy direction and advancing the five Thrive outcomes will emerge and be formally adopted in the Thrive systems and policy plans for housing, transportation, water and regional parks.

The girl’s father recently shared how much the program helped not only Peterson’s mentee, now in college, but the girl’s two sisters who also were selected by school officials to participate in the program. Peterson, of Eagan, said anyone can achieve their goals; her own life is testament to those who have hard life circumstances that they can overcome. Peterson said her father was a drug addict who was often in jail. “I had an awesome mom,� Peterson said. “She really taught me and kind of showed me I had to take care of myself, and to not be dependent on people, but to kind of forge my path.� She was the first one in her family to pursue education beyond high

school. Peterson went to trade school, worked as clinic manager at Life Wellness Center, and is now in charge of marketing at the center. A former Businesswoman of the Year, Peterson also recently married and is busy raising her four children. “I had everything going against me,� Peterson said. “I could have had a very failing life, and I ended up, you know, I consider myself to be a pretty successful woman and I created my own life.� Students involved in the program have also had the opportunity to listen to panels of successful adults sharing their experiences and their career paths. One panel speaker said she started out playing Snoopy at Mall of America and ended up working in human resources be-

cause she loved the organization. “Hearing their journey is so important for these young people,� Peterson said. “Because they see hope.� The nonprofit is celebrating its two-decade anniversary with a banquet from 5:30-9 p.m. April 20 at the Mendakota Country Club at 2075 Mendakota Drive in Mendota Heights. The event will include a speech by one of the organization’s founders, author and public speaker Linda Bauer, who now lives in Texas, and keynote speaker Joe Schmit from KSTP television. Tickets are $40 and are available at hopefortomorrowmentoring.org. Hope for Tomorrow has eight girls chapters and two boys chapters in the metro area and is seek-

ing to expand locally, but needs additional adult volunteers to participate. She said the experience has been very rewarding for her and she encourages others to get involved. One of those she has successfully recruited is one of her daughters, who is passionate about social issues and was excited to take part in Black Lives Matter protests. “I said to her, ‘If you want to make a change in society, you do it with our kids,’ � Peterson said. “Most adults will not change opinions about things they think, but you can make an impact on these young people.� Peterson said mentors encouraging and investing in the lives of the next generation “is a way to change our future.� She said the students want someone to care

The Met Council’s adopted housing policy plan increases the minimum average residential density from three dwelling units per net acre to three to five dwelling units per net acre, Licht stated in a Feb. 9 memo to city Planning Director Daryl Morey. He said the Met Council’s inclusion of a 2014 housing policy plan “changes the focus of the document from guiding development of regional and local housing policy to effectively mandating the City implement programs, fiscal devices and other specific actions (Minnesota Statutes 473.859, Subd. 4) to achieve affordable housing targets defined for Lakeville by the Metropolitan Council.� Formulas established by the Met Council state that 1,414 dwelling units of the 4,000 dwelling units projected to be added in Lakeville between 2021 and 2030 must be available at less than 80 percent of the area median income. The Met Council plan also increases the emphasis between land use and

transportation, linking transportation funding to city compliance to the housing mandates. Thrive MSP 2040 requires a minimum residential density of 10 dwelling units per acre in areas along the Cedar Avenue BRT Corridor, an increase from the seven units-peracre density Lakeville agreed to in its 2008 comprehensive plan, accord to Licht’s memo. “There are real implications to meeting those benchmarks,� Licht said at the February meeting.

potential of losing transportation funding. “In my mind, it’s not a just a density question,� Anderson said. “It’s about how do we make sure we have the infrastructure necessary to do what we need to do for the next 10 to 20 years as a city, and so we’ve got to look at how all this plays together. The last thing we want to do is come in with really low density and not get the kind of infrastructure we need to have ... We’re going to have to struggle with that.� City Administrator Justin Miller said the Met Council also directs cities to target areas next to transit, as Lakeville is already doing. He added there are plans coming to build apartments on the Jackson Landscaping property on the I-35 transportation corridor. “The things we’re doing, you know, are exactly in line with what the Met Council says we should be doing,� Miller said. Morey said the market demand is growing among

millennials for workforce housing, and the Met Council’s benchmarks reflect that need. Planning Commission Member Karl Drotning said Lakeville does not get redevelopment funding like Minneapolis and St. Paul do. He was responding to Council Member Brian Wheeler’s concern that there are not large areas in the city with attainable housing. “We have all these apartment complexes,� Wheeler said. “That’s great for the 18- to 25-year-old, but what about that 25 and 35, has a couple kids and is trying to get .... a backyard?� Planning Commission Member Elizabeth Bakewicz said Lakeville has a good supply of homes with yards costing less than $300,000. Council Member Colleen LaBeau agreed, noting the city’s downtown and eastern edge have more attainable homes. The city has scheduled six public meetings to gather input from residents.

Joint meeting City Council and Planning Commission members held a rare joint meeting April 6 to review the comprehensive plan process and discuss areas of the city it will most effect, including along Cedar Avenue. Mayor Doug Anderson said workforce housing is needed in Lakeville as businesses grow, particularly around County Road 70 where road improvements are needed, and raised concern about the

about them and need to hear they matter. “If they have someone who just tells them they’re awesome and cares about them, then maybe they can make it, too,� Peterson said. “That’s just our hope.� Contact Laura Adelmann at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

LAUNCH, from 1A common type of pre-cast building construction,� Olson said. He said the material offers a wider variety of color options than the current tan or gray exposed aggregate material now allowed. Contact Laura Adelmann at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc.com. The meetings are all at 6 p.m. and are set as follows: • April 25 at the Water Treatment Facility, 18400 Ipava Ave. • April 27 at City Hall, 20195 Holyoke Ave. • May 9 at the Central Maintenance Facility, 7570 179th St. W. • May 11 at Orchard Lake Elementary School, 16531 Klamath Trail • May 23 at the Central Maintenance Facility, 7570 179th St. W. • May 25 at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, 20965 Holyoke Ave. Lakeville must present its draft comprehensive plan to the Metropolitan Council for review by December. The plan’s primary emphasis is on land use and development, but also includes many interrelated elements including the environment, transportation, parks, trails and open space, community facilities and infrastructure.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville April 14, 2017 19A

Thisweekend Small-town love story set against a backdrop of war Lakeville author’s ‘Stars Over Clear Lake’ set for release in May by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Loretta Ellsworth is venturing into new literary territory with “Stars Over Clear Lake.� Ellsworth, of Lakeville, is the author of four young-adult novels, starting with “The Shrouding Woman� in 2002. Her new novel, a love story that begins during World War II in a rural Iowa town, marks her adult-fiction debut. “This story goes back and forth in time between the 1940s and 2005, and my character needed to age with the story,� she said of her decision to break from the youngadult genre. “Perhaps because it was inspired by my parents, who met at the Surf Ballroom, where part of the story takes place, that I felt challenged to write it this way, or just because the story demanded to be told in alternating time periods. “I’m hoping this will be a crossover book, one that will appeal to teens and older people alike.� The novel, which is be-

ing published by St. Martin’s Press, will be released May 2. A launch party for “Stars Over Clear Lake� is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, May 11, at Subtext Books in St. Paul. Ellsworth spoke with this newspaper recently about her writing habits, some of the real-life inspiration behind the new book, and her abiding fondness for Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird.� Q: What is your writing strategy? Do you have any writing rituals? A: I started writing seriously when my four children were young and I was working as a teacher, so I had to be flexible and write in whatever spare moments I could find throughout the day. Now that I’m no longer working and my children are grown, I find I write best in the morning, but my output tends to be the same as from my earlier years. Q: What’s on your writing desk? A: My desk is rather messy right now, with lots of books and notes, and my computer. I also have

Loretta Ellsworth a lamp, a few inspirational pictures and sayings, a multicolored glass heart, and a cross-stitched butterfly that a friend made for me. And often my cat sits on my desk, too. Q: “Stars Over Clear Lake� features the historic Surf Ballroom near Mason City, Iowa, where you grew up. Are there other elements of this novel drawn from your experiences in Mason City? A: I mention many familiar places in the book, both in Clear Lake and Mason City, and I interviewed two aunts who

regularly went to the Surf Ballroom, using some of their experiences to capture the ambiance and setting of the 1940s. I also named characters after people I knew growing up. Q: What are you working on now? Any book projects in the works? A: I’m working on revising a young-adult novel, and I’m finishing a draft of another adult historical novel based on a true story that took place shortly after the end of World War II in Minnesota. Q: What was the last truly great book you read? A: I loved “All the Light We Cannot See� by Anthony Doerr, and I tell everyone I know to read it. Q: Who is your favorite novelist of all time? A: My favorite book and novelist is “To Kill a Mockingbird� by Harper Lee, a book I reread often and that continues to speak to me. I even wrote a young-adult novel called “In Search of Mockingbird� about a girl who travels by bus from St. Paul to Monroeville in search of her favorite author. Although I never

had the privilege of meeting Harper Lee in person, I did meet many of her friends and relatives, and I know she was personally

given a copy of my book.
