Citing increasing resident concerns, Lakeville Mayor Matt Little announced the City Council will discuss formation of a collaborative task force next week to comprehensively address school road safety citywide. Discussion will occur at the City Council’s Jan. 28 work session at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall; the meeting is open to the public. Little said the task force would seek to include representatives from the City Council, Dakota County and School Districts 194,

192 and 196, which are in Lakeville boundaries. He invited the public to participate, noting numerous constituent communications City Council members and other city officials have recently received regarding road safety near Lakeville schools since the Dec. 4 fatal crash involving Lakeville North junior Alyssa Ettl. Little said residents are expressing concern about numerous areas near Lakeville schools: County Road 50, Dodd Boulevard, Ipava Avenue, 210th Street regarding pedestrian access to Lakeville South High School and

complications around McGuire Middle School, located off Holyoke Avenue south of downtown. “Just this morning, we received an email about Highview Avenue and access to All Saints private school,� Little said. Lakeville resident Christine Preston used her Twitter account to request the city consider a walking path along 210th Street for children to get to school. “Awful seeing kids on the street!� she added. Lakeville resident Kelly Bankole said she is concerned about safety on See DODD, 13A

Al and Candy Meyer live in a home on three acres off Dodd Boulevard south of County Road 70 where over $9 million in road improvements are set to start this spring. Markers to their right show where right of way will take more than 100 trees from their property for the wider road. The couple worry the wider road will attract more truck traffic, and while they say some improvements are needed, roads near schools should have a higher priority. (Photo by Laura Adelmann)

Lakeville Mayor Matt Little administered the oath of office to Jeff Long, the city’s new police chief. Long comes to the city from Edina where he served in the police force since 1987 and was named chief in 2010. City Administrator Steve Mielke called his hiring “a big moment for Lakeville.� Mielke called Long a “leader in his field� and said Long’s long history of active participation in civic activities and strong commitment to open communications were among the attributes that set him apart from many qualified candidates. Mielke recognized Sgt. John Kornmann for exemplary work serving as interim chief after Tom Vonhof’s Oct. 1 resignation. Mielke said Kornmann “dealt admirably� with a number of issues in the community. Those issues included the fatal death of 16-year-old Alyssa Ettl on Dodd Boulevard, and the discovery of 32-year-old Andrea Marker’s body in front of her home earlier this month. Mielke said Kornmann handled the challenges “with grace.� Among those attending the swearing-in ceremony were Lakeville officers, Vonhof, Dakota County Sheriff Dave Bellows and Burnsville Police Chief Eric Gieseke.

A husband-wife business duo have earned recognition for their years of service safely carrying precious cargo. Dan and Sue Schmitt, owners of Schmitty & Sons School Buses, are the 2013 Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Business Persons of the Year. “We were both just kind of stunned,� Sue said. “After all these years we’ve been in business, the thought never crossed our minds. We were pretty surprised and honored.� The couple purchased all shares of the family-owned business in 2009, started by Dan’s father Wilfrid Schmitt (“Schmitty�) six decades ago.

“When I started driving bus, there were farms dotted all over,� Sue said. “My route was long, but I’d pick up a kid here and there because it was farm land. Lakeville has grown a lot.� The company has grown from owning one bus to more than See SCHMITTY, 12A

Andrea Marker, of Lakeville, had a caring heart and pursued a career that showed her compassion, said her mother, Sheila Marker. The 32-yearold sister, daughter and mother was found dead in front of her parents’ home in brutal cold weather conditions the af- Andrea ternoon of Jan. 7, Marker according to Lakeville police. She died of hypothermia, according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, and also had acute levels of alcoholic toxicity that reportedly contributed to her death. Chief Hennepin County Medical Examiner Andrew Baker said acute intoxication means Marker’s blood-alcohol level was at least .08 percent at the time of her death. The office cited privacy laws and said it does not release exact toxicology results. Sheila Marker said her daughter, a 1991 Lakeville High School (now Lakeville North) graduate, was pursuing a nursing degree. The second of five children, “Andie� Marker and had an active childhood, loved birthday parties and often invited friends to gather at their home, Sheila Marker said. During family games nights, Andie Marker always encouraged everyone to play her mother’s favorite game, even though she did not like it very much, Sheila Marker said. Sheila Marker added that Andie Marker liked caring for children and volunteered in the church nursery and babysat for relatives. “I remember how her smile could brighten any room,� Sheila Marker wrote. “How infectious her laugh was, and how she knew when you needed a hug.� Andrea Marker’s funeral was held Jan. 11 at Berean Baptist Church in Burnsville. She is survived by her son, parents Bryan and Sheila, and siblings Trisha, Stephen, Erika, and Jessica (Patrik), according to the obituary.

A local teenager is taking big steps to achieve a dancing career. Sydney Barber, 15, moved from Lakeville to Winnipeg, Canada, to pursue dance with the prestigious Royal Winnipeg Ballet, where she has been awarded a scholarship for outstanding talent in the full-time program. Having taken dance since she was a toddler, Sydney said she realized when she was in fifth grade that she wanted to become a professional dancer, but because of the devotion required, it was a dream she never knew she could attain. Her natural talent and ability caught the attention of her Lakeville dance teacher Denise Vogt, who with husband Rick Vogt, owns Ballet Royale of Minnesota. Denise Vogt encouraged Sydney to audition for acceptance into the school,

where she is now in her second year of training, fully devoted and thrilled about opportunities that are ahead. The audition started in Minnesota, then continued for a month-long trial at the school in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got accepted, I was really excited,â&#x20AC;? Sydney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew if I wanted to be a professional dancer, it would be the right thing for me to go here and be around a professional ballet company. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good atmosphere here to prepare you for a professional career.â&#x20AC;? Sydney and other dance students accepted in the program live in dormstyle rooms connected to the school and train daily. They also take high school classes administered by the University of Winnipeg. The students have counselors who mentor them and do things together, like watch movies, shop or go out to eat. Costs to attend the school vary, based on a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age and program of studies. International student tuition ranges from $600$3,285 for summer; and regular sessions cost between $3,080-$9,985 for the full-time program that runs from September through June, according to the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public relations coordinator Jane Puchniak. She said students are also charged academic and residence fees. Scholarships, bursaries and financial aid packages are available. Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Colleen Barber, said she was opposed to the idea when Sydney first brought it up when she was 9 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, my first answer was no,â&#x20AC;? Colleen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Absolutely not.â&#x20AC;? Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream only grew stronger, but Colleen remained opposed to the idea until her husband Jeff Barberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unexpected sudden fatal heart attack in

Denise Vogt also encouraged Colleen to consider letting Sydney audition, saying that her long legs and dance skills were exactly what the Winnipeg Royal Ballet looks for in students. After about a year of research, Colleen agreed to let Sydney try out, and if she made it, Colleen would let her go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was scary,â&#x20AC;? Colleen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, it was the best, most exciting thing I could do for her, because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flying high and just doing fabulous.â&#x20AC;? Sydney said she loves her training, and regularly keeps in touch with family via Skype and returns home for Christmas break and the month of August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get homesick much,â&#x20AC;? Sydney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so busy dancing, and doing other things, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have time to miss home.â&#x20AC;? She described being â&#x20AC;&#x153;really scaredâ&#x20AC;? during the audition to gain admittance into the school, because she knew its reputation for excellence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how

good the dancers were outside of Minnesota,â&#x20AC;? she said. Students come from all over the world, she said, including Japan and Thailand. Classes include ballet, modern, pointe and character dance, a stylized version of traditional folk or national dance. Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream is to dance with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be in such great company, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also like to go to Europe and dance over there,â&#x20AC;? she said. Sydney and her classmates spend about 20 hours per week practicing their craft, and although her pursuit of dance has been physically painful at times, she does not want to do anything else. Colleen said she is proud of Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talents, and encouraged other parents who have children with a special gift to let them be in a place where they can be supported and â&#x20AC;&#x153;become what they want to be.â&#x20AC;? Sydney said she appreciates her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacrifice and support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know it was hard for (my mom) to let me go, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really glad she did because I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing for me,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Among their accomplishments, he said, are that more Minnesotans are working since Dayton took office, the state has a fairer tax system and people are free to marry whom they love. Staley said GOP activists are most concerned about the negative impact of the DFL and governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax increases and greater regulations on the economy. Other concerns are over the â&#x20AC;&#x153;deeply flawedâ&#x20AC;? implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and MNsure, the statewide health care exchange website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line for Minnesota is that the DFL in the Legislature and the governor spent a lot of money on a health care program that seems unlikely to deliver any substantial improvements to the system,â&#x20AC;?

Precinct caucuses generate the most interest during presidential election years, but the chance for neighbors to talk about politics bring out many people even on a cold winter night. The Republican and DFL parties will host caucuses at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, with straw polls, discussions about party platform resolutions and delegate elections all on the docket. Registration starts at 6:30 p.m. The partisan events serve as the unofficial start to the 2014 campaign season, though many candidates have been hard at work on their campaigns for months. Among the high profile races, several Republican candidates are vying for the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endorsement in the gubernatorial race for a chance to face Gov. Mark Dayton. Among those candidates are state Sen. Dave Thompson, RLakeville. At least six Republicans have announced that they will vie for endorsement for the chance to face U.S. Sen. Al Franken in the general election. Three Democrats have said they will seek the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endorsement in the 2nd Congressional District race. Those candidates include Mike Obermueller, who lost to U.S. Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, in the 2012 election. The two other candidates are Thomas Craft and Paula Overby. All Minnesota House seats will be elected this year. DFL Chairman Ken Martin, of Eagan, said precinct caucuses are a great way for people to meet their neighbors, discuss issues important to their community and serve

Opinion Addressing hunger through strategic collaboration by Brian Geraty and Jeff Mortensen SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Earlier this year, the Brookings Institute released data showing that between 2000 and 2011, the ranks of the poor in the Twin Cities suburbs grew by more than 115,000 – a 128 percent increase in that time. This report highlights the hard reality food shelves are facing: an escalated need for healthy food and financial assistance that is overwhelming the community safety-net. Food banks have responded by budgeting to dispense more food and dollars, while funders influence this system by promoting increased food distribution with easier access. Hunger could theoretically be eliminated by distributing more and more food, but only temporarily. Unless there is a paradigm shift in how food banks and funders approach food insecurity and food injustice, we will be hard-pressed to reverse the trend of families relying on food shelves as part of their family’s financial budget. The opportunity exists to work together differently, leveraging the expansive set of local access points and community competencies to promote long-term self-sufficiency. This includes access to a greater volume of nutritionally rich food products and targeted services among many community partners. We believe authentic collaborative efforts between resource providers, including the recipients of food, will correct the cycle that is creating food shelf dependency. We must continue to meet the immediate need for food and move people toward longer-term self-sufficiency to reverse the current trend. With that in mind, 360 Communities

Guest Columnists

Brian Geraty Jeff Mortensen and Vineyard Community Services have signed a memorandum of collaboration that seeks to change the way we address hunger and access to healthy food in the south metro by leveraging each organization’s core competencies and relationships with families. This collaboration will focus on making healthy foods more accessible to the food insecure, while effectively providing pathways that build stability and promoting self-sufficiency. Food inequality remains a daunting factor costing government, health care and individuals billions of dollars each year as well as lives. According to the Center for American Progress, hunger costs the United States at least $167.5 billion every year in health care, government, education and more. While the context of and circumstances surrounding food injustice and insecurity vary, a common denominator exists: inadequate access to sufficient quantities of healthy food. In addition to addressing under-nutrition, we seek to bridge the gap between food security and health sustainability. In 2012, 360 Communities served 14,000 individuals with its network of five food shelves, two resource centers, two domestic violence shelters and three school success programs. With nine programs in 40 locations acting as access points for families in need, 360 Communities provides resources and referrals

that stabilize families. Staff work directly in homes and schools addressing a whole host of needs to build parenting skills and develop learning plans for students. Domestic violence advocates work from shelters and throughout Dakota County to provide counseling and life skills coaching that help women and children start new lives. Staff leverage community funding and locations where families are naturally congregating to stabilize housing and address other financial concerns. A critical underpinning of all of this work is access to healthy food. When that basic need is met, a family can concentrate on increasing stability and working on the skills it takes to reach self-sufficiency. Vineyard Community Services served 23,000 individuals with healthy food during that same period. The organization utilizes technological and process efficiencies to make nutritious food available to more people. We believe that by working together our two organizations can deliver greater resources to the community that are more accessible to meet immediate needs, build stability and promote longer-term self-sufficiency. And just as importantly, we believe these synergies can be achieved in a way that is more cost effective longer-term through collaboration. We plan on doing the following: • Distribute healthy, nutritious food more efficiently. Integrate Vineyard Community Services’ food shelf operations to provide greater access to emergency hunger relief services for the Dakota County food insecure population. • Build stability and promote selfsufficiency more effectively. Integrate and streamline 360 Communities intake/ assessment operations to provide greater

access to self-sufficiency services for families seeking assistance. Dakota County Director of Community Services Kelly Harder is encouraged by organizations that look beyond competition and work together to achieve common goals. “There’s more than enough work for all of us and there’s never going to be enough resources to resolve some of these issues,” says Harder, “so I really commend the partnership that is currently going on between 360 Communities and Vineyard Community Services. … If we just provide food and don’t work for greater self-sufficiency, then we just perpetuated the cycle of in the door out the door.” With this collaboration, we seek to change the dialogue and action surrounding the issues of poverty, hunger and nutrition. We believe there are other organizations with core strengths and expertise we do not possess that would enhance our ability to reach and empower more people. We invite others to join us. If we work together in a new way, we can change lives in Minnesota, break the cycle of poverty and reach more people with healthy food. Brian Geraty is executive director of Vineyard Community Services, a nonprofit that serves families and individuals in times of need. The organization utilizes technological and process efficiencies to make nutritious food available to more people. Jeff Mortensen is chief operating officer of 360 Communities, a nonprofit that engages communities to prevent violence, ensure school success and promote long-term self-sufficiency.

Many different congregations pray for Christian unity by the Rev. Paul Jarvis SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Back in 1908, Father Paul Wattson – a Greymoor Friar in New York – started an ecumenical prayer movement that would eventually catch on, and not just with the hierarchy of the Catholic Christian Church. The week of prayer for Christian unity, Jan. 18-25, would eventually catch on with many other traditions within Christianity: especially during the 60s, when most mainline denominations were recognizing other denominations’ baptisms. Believe it or not, these mainline churches actually considered each other to be – hold onto your seat – “Christians.” One doctrinal difference had often been all it took for denominations to fracture into smaller and smaller slivers of Christianity. Whereas it used to be the tendency of nearly all Christians to pray that all may be one … within one’s particular denomination. And whereas pastors tended to be

Guest Columnist

The Rev. Paul Jarvis more concerned about growing their congregations to pay the bills, and less about ecumenical collaboration and mutual respect. Within the past 50 years, the vast majority of Christian denominations have been praying for the unity of all Christians, according to God’s will and according to the means that God wills. Once dormant, the ecumenical spirit is again blossoming here in Dakota County. Over the past few years, congregations’ pastors and still more congregations’ members have gathered at our local Thanksgiving Eve Service, with donations of food and money for our local food shelf. Two years ago, Rosemount

United Methodist hosted the service, and St. Joseph’s Church played host this past year. For three years in a row, St. Joseph’s Church has hosted an ecumenical Blessing of the Animals on the first Saturday of October. Lutheran ministers and Catholic deacons and priests blessed quite a few “Cath-eran” pets and farm animals, as well as their owners. Joining other civic organizations and businesses, Rosemount denominations of all stripes came together in One Rosemount Feeding Families, absolutely and positively impacting a great many lives locally and globally. And Leprechaun Days wouldn’t be the celebration of community that it is if were not for all the local congregations getting involved. This past weekend, a unity prayer penned by the Rev. Karen Bruins, lead pastor of Rosemount United Methodist, was read by pastors at her church and at St. Joseph and hopefully at other congregations as well. The unity prayer seeks to expand on the united efforts of the body

Perhaps in several years’ time we’ll not only have a bigger Thanksgiving Eve Service, we’ll have a powerful combined multi-congregation choir singing at several community functions. We’ll have even more combined prayer services and events. We’ll unite in Bible study and devotions and ministries. We’ll bless a horde of Baptcathpresbymethepiscotheran animals. And we’ll not only call each other brothers and sisters in Christ … we’ll actually mean it.

has been discussion of habitat destruction. We need to define ecological stewardship and water resource management. As an alternative, why not build network trails connecting with each other around the parks. Let’s keep encroachment to a minimum. This is an opportunity to leave either a bigger development footprint (as of the current plan) or minimize it. There is development everywhere. There are only the parks left – and development is there, too. How much should there be? How do we want our parks used? Do we want to protect them for the future? “How often we speak of the great silences of the wilderness and of the importance of preserving them and the wonder and peace to be found there. … However should their silences be broken, they will never be the same.” – Sigurd Olson CAROL-ANN BLOOM Apple Valley

Balance needs to be found To the editor: Why does it seem like all the letters to the paper oppose paving any part of Lebanon Hills Regional Park? Why does it seem like the comments in public meetings oppose paving any part of the park? Why does it seem like the Dakota County Parks Department and the county commissioners ignore the public outcry? Why does it seem that they have their own agenda and are ignoring their constituents? Who was the person who first stood up and said: “Let’s look into paving some trails”? Will he or she stand up now and tell the paper why, and why it continues to be pushed? Will the present Park Department members and commissioners who are for the paving, tell the paper why it continues to be pushed in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming opposition?

Reasons to support Obermueller To the editor: A late October poll showed Mike Obermueller leading the race to represent the 2nd Congressional District in Congress. This poll by Public Policy Polling has Obermueller running ahead of the incumbent, for several apparent reasons. Unlike the incumbent, Obermueller reaches out frequently to

people in the 2nd District about what is important to them. He is also different in his support for the education of all our young people, regardless of their familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealth. He opposes allowing student loan rates to double, and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t favor cutting college aid. Obermuellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership in funding early education can save our country billions in remedial services in the future. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting that Obermueller works together with folks across the aisle. He says people should not be kept from cooperating just because they come from different parties. He thinks this is what people are elected to do, rather than excluding other points of view. Unlike some incumbents, Obermueller also seems

to believe that saving tax money doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to favor folks in upper tax brackets over the rest of us. A lot of people in the 2nd District have begun to see the value of supporting key projects like education and jobs. Obermueller has reliably supported those key projects for family stability. He advocates cutting government waste in subsidies for those who are already rich, and keeping more of our hard-earned dollars at home. Obermueller is recognized as a dependable, forward-thinking citizen. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of person we need to represent us in Congress. CATHY JOHNSON Farmington

Businesses, legislators feel heat from new taxes Gov. Dayton, Democrats promise repeal if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sufficientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; surplus by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A sales tax that will apply to Minnesota warehousing services wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into effect until April 1, yet many in the industry say they are already feeling squeezed by it. For three decades, Strategic Warehousing has provided storage services in Eagan for Coca-Cola can supplier Rexam and other major manufacturers, but in August, the company began shifting its operations to Ames, Iowa, due to the tax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a market we would have otherwise moved to,â&#x20AC;? Strategic Warehousing general manager Kathy Forester said. The Iowa facility has six employees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a number that is set to grow if the 6.5 percent sales tax isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t repealed, Forester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would have to move all of our operations,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the legislators who passed this understand the industry.â&#x20AC;? The warehousing industry is a mobile one, she said. Companies can easily move their products to warehouses in Wisconsin, Iowa or Illinois â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sales tax on warehousing services â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and many already have, Forester said.

Kathy Forester, general manager for Strategic Warehousing in Eagan, says the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue has fallen by 18 percent since the sales tax was passed in 2013. (Photo by Jessica Harper) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers will continue to bypass Minnesota so the state wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be collecting the tax anyway,â&#x20AC;? she said. Those who continue to use Strategicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eagan warehouse have said they are unwilling to pay the tax, leaving Strategic footing a bill it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford, said Forester, who has testified about the issue to the small business caucus. Even in good years, the company maintains modest profit margins of 3 to 5 percent, Forester said. With its customers seeking services elsewhere, Strategic lost 18 percent of its revenue between August 2013 and January 2014, which prompted the company to lay off 22 percent of its workforce, Forester said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This industry, employees are people with minimal education,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some come right out of

college. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good paying job where they can move up.â&#x20AC;? Forester knows this firsthand. A 33-year veteran of the industry, she started as a warehouse worker and worked her way up to general manager. The recent layoffs are the warehouse companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first in many years. When other businesses were looking to cutting costs in 2009, Strategic Warehousingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revenue increased 10 percent and the company added new jobs. At the time, the Eagan warehouse had 35 employees, which declined last year to 25. Strategicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle is also evident by a walk through its Eagan warehouse. Prior to the passage of the sales tax, Forester said the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100,000-square-foot ware-

house would be packed with, among other goods, empty soda cans, which would be brought to the bottling facility. Today, about a third of the space is vacant. Strategic Warehousing is not alone, said Jim Pumarlo, communications director of the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. Many businesses are feeling strained by not only by the warehousing tax but also the equipment repair services and a telecommunications equipment taxes included in the legislation, Pumarlo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minnesota has a good quality of life and we expect to pay for it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piling on,â&#x20AC;? he said. The $3.6 billion tax bill passed in the last legislative session as the state sought new revenues to balance its budget. The sales tax on telecommunication equip-

ment and equipment repairs went into effect July 1, 2013. Both the warehousing and repair sales taxes apply only to services provided by a third party. Companies that store goods in their own warehouse or repair equipment on site, are exempt from the tax. Exemptions from the sales tax on warehousing services also include the storage of agricultural products, refrigeration goods, electronic data, self-storage services and petroleum products. In addition to being faced with a potential sales tax on warehousing services, Strategic could also face a sales tax on equipment repairs should its forklifts break, Forester said. Gov. Mark Dayton has said he will agree to repeal all three taxes, which generate $231 million in revenue, if the state begins the February session with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sufficientâ&#x20AC;? surplus. Current budget forecasts estimate a $846 million surplus. All three taxes were part of a late-session budget deal in 2013. Passage of a repeal seems likely if the forecast is accurate. Both House and Senate Democrats say they agree with the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promise, and Republicans have anxious since last session to repeal all three taxes. State Sen. Jim Carlson, DFL-Eagan, is among those to side with the governor but cautions that legislators should wait for the final budget forecast before making promises.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each of the three taxes have its detractor,â&#x20AC;? Carlson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I want to wait until the February forecast.â&#x20AC;? Carlson said he believes the sales tax on telecommunications equipment is also unfair when compared to other industries. In addition to potentially repealing the three sales taxes, Carlson said he would like to ensure a sales tax exemption given to Minnesota cities is also applied to joint power agreements, such as the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority. State Rep. Laurie Halverson, DFL-Eagan, authored a bill during the special session to repeal all three taxes on the condition that the state surplus is at minimum $846 million as predicted. After the bill was defeated in committee, Halverson filed a similar bill to be discussed in February. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The warehouse tax is my top priority, because it has already impacted so many businesses in Eagan,â&#x20AC;? said Halverson, a member of the House Small Business Caucus. Although she strongly supports a repeal, Halverson concurs with her fellow Democrats that a repeal can be achieved only if the state maintains a healthy budget. For Forester, a repeal canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come soon enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t undo whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been done, but can stop the bleeding,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Legislation may change budget reporting Effort aims to bring more transparency to government finances by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Truth in Taxation hearings donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t draw a lot of crowds. The annual December meetings that are held by various units of government offer presentations and information regarding the current budget cycle and the impact on taxpayers. Among the frequent criticisms of the hearings is that they are held too late in the budget cycle when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no chance to influence changes and the reporting requirements fall short of providing clarity. A bill introduced in the 2012 legislative session aimed to offer some changes in the way budget reports are assembled in an effort for taxpayers to better understand their money at work. NAIOP, also called the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, forwarded the legislation, which was approved by the House and the Senate but was vetoed by Gov.

This is one of the slides from NAIOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Transparency Project budget presentation that used Dakota County as an example. The graphic on the left shows the typical reporting done by units of government, and the graphic on the right shows government spending by type, one of the suggested features that would be added to government financial reporting if NAIOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed legislation were passed in 2014. word about the legislation, NAIOP conducted the Transparency Project with Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, which demonstrated how a budget report would look under the proposed legislation. The Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence prepared the transparency report, which essentially added comparison of the current budget to that of four years ago and reported the expenditures by type â&#x20AC;&#x201C; personnel, client services and materials, capital outlay, to reserves, department and county support, and other. Dakota County Finance Director Matt Smith said the budget history provides a useful perspec-

tive. He added that expenditure reporting by type also may be more familiar to an audience of business taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The effort was a success to the extent that it provided useful information to those taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? Smith said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and based on the feedback received at the meeting to discuss it, I think they did find it useful.â&#x20AC;? Mark Lofthus, economic development director for Farmington-based Dakota

Electric, said the trend lines, in this instance comparing 2009 to 2013, â&#x20AC;&#x153;are so critical.â&#x20AC;? For example, the report showed that Dakota County had reduced its spending by about $40.9 million from $318.8 million in 2009 to $277.9 million in 2013. Lofthus told NAIOP that knowing and understanding changes in spending will lead to greater citizen engagement. NAIOP says reporting by expenditure type aims to show why county services cost what they do, such as the biggest part of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; employee costs. The report showed that salaries and wages had declined from 2009 to 2013 by $15.89 million and fulltime equivalent positions fell by 132 during the same time frame. With that information, NAIOP says taxpayers can then ask if that has any implications for service delivery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The standards (as proposed by NAIOP and the MCFE) would ensure that local governments provide transparency within their budgets and reports, much like a business,â&#x20AC;? Vicki Stute, Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce president, told NAIOP.

Smith said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the additional reporting that would be required by the legislation would be too burdensome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had the information in our data systems and just had to assemble and report it out in a different format,â&#x20AC;? he said. NAIOP says the typical budget that shows spending by department doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the whole story. Dakota County and many of the cities in the county know this and prepare many different charts and graphics in an attempt to help taxpayers understand it. Smith said the county hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t received a lot of taxpayer feedback in the past regarding its budget and financial reporting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can probably take that as a sign theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fairly satisfied,â&#x20AC;? he said. Information about Dakota Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget can be found on its website, in newsletters and through presentations at board meetings, which are webcast. The same can be said of cities and school districts in Dakota County that provide budget information in a variety of formats and venues. Email Tad Johnson at tad.johnson@ecm-inc.com.

8A January 24, 2014 SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville

A journey in self-discovery Congressional candidate Paula Overby spent a lifetime searching for her identity by Jessica Harper Born Paul Overby, Eagan resident Paula Overby is a transgender woman and seeking the DFL endorsement for the 2nd Congressional seat.

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

     



Congressional candidate Paula Overby has built her platform on becoming a voice for the voiceless. And Overby is no stranger to adversity herself. Born Paul Overby, the Eagan resident always knew she was different. As a young boy growing up in Wisconsin, Overby, who is transgender, hated having short hair, wearing boys clothes and preferred the company of girls over boys. Though she never dressed as a girl during her formative years, Overby said she always identified with girls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a great childhood. I had all girl friends so, for the most part, I got to be a girl,â&#x20AC;? said Overby who is seeking the Democratic nomination in the 2nd Congressional District. The seat is currently held by Republican U.S. Rep. John Kline. This all changed in

Overby (right) is the parent of three children, including her son, Tyler, who graduated in 2011 from Eagan High School. Though her marriage to her ex-wife, Marie (left), ended in a bitter divorce, their children made it all worthwhile, Overby said. 1968 when Overbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family moved from the Milwaukee area to Nashua, N.H. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a horrible move,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a huge culture shock.â&#x20AC;? Growing up in the Milwaukee area, Overby could sit by his female friends at lunch, but at his new junior high school, students were separated by gender. It was around this time Overby realized he identified more with girls than boys and began to do whatever he could to hide his gender issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt I had to hide it by being more masculine,â&#x20AC;? she said. After graduating from high school in 1972, Overby attended the University of Minnesota where he found a more liberating environment. Yet he continued to hide his inner battle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do it all in secret,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You feel guilt and shame.â&#x20AC;? While in college, Overby began to identify as gay and started dating a man. Within a couple years, he dropped out of college due to an abusive relationship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a relationship he had kept secret from his parents.

Though Overby hid it Following the suicide

from friends and family, he shared the truth behind the cross-dressing with Marie and even proposed to her while wearing a dress. The couple were wed in 1984. That same year Overby took a job at an IT company after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a computer science degree. Over the years the couple tried to live an otherwise ordinary family life. Excited to be a parent, Overby had no qualms raising Marieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-year-old daughter, Jamie, as his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best thing I got out of my marriage was being a parent, and I love it,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. Within a few years, the couple had two more children: Courtney and Tyler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, he was a very involved dad,â&#x20AC;? Tyler, 20, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But looking back, I could tell she had a very motherly nature.â&#x20AC;? Overbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children knew their father dressed in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a fact that Tyler said never bothered him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a pretty normal family,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go to the park and grill. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d teach me to do guy stuff like use a riding lawn mower and a chain saw safely.â&#x20AC;? The couple moved to Eagan in 1987 to raise their growing family. Early in the relationship, Overbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife seemed to accept her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyle, but over the next 10 years, it became one of many wedges in the relationship, Overby said. By 1993, Overby began to question her gender identity and began

to more frequently wear womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing in public. It was the beginning of what Overby calls her â&#x20AC;&#x153;man in a dressâ&#x20AC;? phase. Though she frequently wore dresses, she continued to maintain short hair and a mustache. Soon Overby and Marie became increasingly estranged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think she saw the transgender issue as a threat,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. By 2009, the couple headed into a bitter divorce and a two-year-long battle over their Eagan home and custody of Tyler, then 15. Overby spent two decades working in the IT industry and even owned her own startup at one point, but now found herself unemployed and homeless. After bouncing between shelters and other temporary living arrangements for five months, Overby found an apartment. But distraught by the loss of her home and son, Overby had spiraled into a depression and heavy drinking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It began to manifest as a death wish, and I thought that drinking myself to death was the only possible conclusion,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. Within a year, Overby quit drinking with the assistance of a 12-step program and decided to take back control of her life. By January 2011, Overby won her battle with her ex-wife by reclaiming the family home and custody of their son who graduated six months early that spring from Eagan High School.

Finding identity By that time, Overby had also finally realized who she was â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a transgender woman. And that spring she began her transition by taking hormones. She had just started a new job at a corporate bank and was nervous how her colleagues would adjust to the change. Unable to stand the anxiety, Overby marched into her bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; office and told him she would be, from then on, coming to work as a woman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking back, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to do it that way,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should have given them more notice.â&#x20AC;? Overby worked from home for the following week while the company prepared employees. When she returned, she was pleasantly surprised by her co-workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; acceptance. Though she found relief at work, not everything went as smoothly as Overby had hoped. Eager to legally change her identity to female, Overby was often frustrated that she was required to first seek approval from a therapist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree most trans people benefit from therapy,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I felt I had already gotten therapy through AA. I know who I am.â&#x20AC;? By March 2012, Overby was no longer Paul but legally Paula. Choosing a name so similar to her male name is relatively rare in the transgender community. Overby said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to forget her past life but rather bridge the two. Though she is legally a woman, Overby said she hopes to one day take the final step in her process with surgery. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a costly endeavor that is often not covered by health insurance and, like other steps in the process, would require a therapistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval. See OVERBY, 9A

Winter fun is in store next weekend at Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mid-Winter Fest. Now in its 37th year, the annual celebration hosted by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parks and Recreation Department features family-oriented activities Saturday, Feb. 1, centered at the Apple Valley Community Center in Hayes Park. The community center will take on a carnival-type atmosphere during the festival with face painting, inflatable jumpers, balloon animals and mini golf. There are also a â&#x20AC;&#x153;touch and feelâ&#x20AC;? reptile exhibit, clowns and jugglers, sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;more roasting and horse-drawn sleigh rides in the park. Guests can also try their hands at snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in Hayes Park, with equipment on loan from Valley Bike & Ski throughout the day. The medallion hunt, a

Letting go Though letting go of her male identity was easy for Overby, it came as a challenge for some of her family. Her two sisters supported her decision but still struggle in some ways to understand, Overby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often hardest for friends and family because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known that person so long in one way,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For myself, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finally being who I am and not pretending anymore.â&#x20AC;? The change has been hardest for Overbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 86-year-old mother, who still refers to her as Paul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hard at first, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accepted it,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know she loves me, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what matters.â&#x20AC;?

perennial festival favorite, returns this year for teams of sleuths to search out a medallion in one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 parks. Clues will be posted at the Apple Valley Community Center every hour beginning at 9 a.m. Feb. 1. Those who register for the medallion hunt at the community centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front desk the day of the festival will receive clues by email 15 minutes prior to each hourly posting. The other incentive to register is that the finder of the medallion wins $250 if registered, $100 if not. New to the festival this year is a co-rec pickleball tournament (which will be held a day prior to the festival on Jan. 31), a Youth Hockey Jamboree featuring Apple Valley and Eastview hockey association mite players on the Hayes Park rinks, and an Apple Valley-themed photo contest.

could be here today,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we would have interesting conversations. I think he would be proud of me.â&#x20AC;? Through it all, Overby said her children have been some of her greatest supporters. Overby said her eldest daughter sometimes feels uncomfortable with the change but is otherwise accepting of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She feels some loss of her father, which is pretty normal,â&#x20AC;? Overby said. Tyler said he was a little surprised to learn his father would become a woman but was always supportive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little weird at first,â&#x20AC;? Tyler said. Unlike his eldest sister, Tyler said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like he lost a father but rather still has two parents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both of whom happen to be female. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still my parent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But instead of calling her Mom or Dad, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paula.â&#x20AC;?

Tyler said he was more surprised when Overby announced she would run for office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome,â&#x20AC;? he said of her campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think she has a great message and can get young people involved.â&#x20AC;? He said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about the attention â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even negative â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that may come with having a transgender parent seeking the Democrat endorsement.. Like Tyler, his 24-yearold sister, Courtney has supported Overby from the start. A college student in Minneapolis, she has embraced the transgender community and has a transgender boyfriend. Her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle with mounting student loan debt inspired Overby to focus much of her campaign on higher education and addressing its rising cost. Overby said she never had any qualms about being a transgender candi-

date. Perhaps a sign of the times, Overby said she has generally encountered positive reactions from people since coming out as transgender. Even a few negative experiences turned positive in the end, she said. Overby recalls one instance when a group of men at a gas station began laughing and making jokes upon seeing she was transgender, yet when she asked for their assistance with her vehicle, the jokes ended and they helped. Though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first to admit her chances of winning are slim, Overby said her goal is to provide a voice for all the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much who we send to Washington as the message we create,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Sports Panther skaters’ streak hits 14 North increases lead in SSC after victory over Eastview by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It’s been more than six weeks since Lakeville North lost a boys hockey game. As for the notion that the Panthers are a surprise team, that ended a long time ago. Instead, it’s probably time to call the Panthers one of the state’s best teams. North ran its unbeaten streak to 14 games (13-0-1) with a 4-1 homeice victory over Eastview on Tuesday night. Panthers coach Trent Eigner said the team believes the best way to handle the streak is to not think too much about it. “It hasn’t been an issue with us,” he said. “We gave the players the challenge of coming to practice every day and trying to be a little bit better than the day before, and if they do that, the results will probably be what they’re looking for.” During the unbeaten streak, Lakeville North (15-3-1 overall) has routed 10th-ranked Eden Prairie 7-0, tied sixth-ranked Blaine, shut out No. 1-ranked Hill-

(Photo by Mike Shaughnessy) Murray 3-0, beat No. 20 Eagan 6-3, blanked 18thranked Prior Lake 2-0 and beat No. 2 Burnsville 5-4 in overtime after falling three goals behind. North was ranked fifth in Class AA by Let’s Play Hockey last week and seemed certain to move up this week. The Panthers also strengthened their hold on first place in the South Suburban Conference by beating their three closest pursuers in a span of 11 days. After their victory over Eastview they were

11-1 in the SSC and held a six-point lead over Burnsville, which has played two fewer league games. On Tuesday, North delivered a solid-in-all-phases performance against 13th-ranked Eastview, which is the only team to defeat the Panthers in league play (4-3 on Nov. 26) and was on a hot streak of its own (9-1 in its previous 10 games). “I liked how we stayed patient,” Eigner said. “That’s been our M.O. during this streak. We had some chances in the first

period but didn’t score. Instead of getting frustrated and trying to force things, we kept plugging.” Lakeville North outshot Eastview 41-20 and put four pucks past the Lightning’s Zachary Driscoll, one of the state’s top goalies. The Panthers led 1-0 in the second period when Nick Poehling took a fiveminute major penalty for elbowing. Despite being given a golden opportunity to tie the game or perhaps even take the lead, Eastview came out of the power play down 2-0 thanks to Henry Enebak’s shorthanded goal, set up by Jack Poehling. Connor Hyden scored on a breakaway early in the third period and Max Johnson added the Panthers’ fourth goal about two minutes later. Tristen Hazlett scored a shorthanded goal early in the second period to give North the lead and assisted on Johnson’s goal. Enebak also had a goal and assist. Eastview (13-4 overall, 6-4 SSC) got its goal from defenseman Keith Muehlbauer on a power play at 5:45 of the third period, with Nick Hodgen assisting. That ended the shutout bid of North senior goalie Will DuPont, who made 19 saves.

Lakeville North gymnasts good, but are looking to be better Coach sees more to accomplish for 10th-ranked team by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville North is 10th in the state Class AA gymnastics rankings and is the early favorite in next month’s Section 2AA meet, but that doesn’t mean the Panthers’ work is done. Far from it, coach Teri Homan said. Although the Panthers have scored as many as 142.8 points this season, they have the potential for more, the coach said. “I thought we’d be a little higher,” Homan said. “I think we can go 145 if we hit (on every routine), but we haven’t done that yet. It always comes down

to bars and beam. Those are the events everybody has problems with sometimes.” Lakeville North is the

highest-ranked team in Section 2AA, which will hold its meet Feb. 14 at Bloomington Jefferson High School. If Homan is right and the Panthers’ potential is 145 points, that would put them closer to the elite teams in Class AA, Northfield and Roseville, which have won every state large-school championship since 2006. North didn’t qualify as a team for the 2013 state meet, but three Panthers went individually. One of that group graduated and another moved out of state, leaving sophomore Megan Lemley as the only returnee with state high school meet experience. Lemley competed on balance beam and floor exercise at last year’s state meet. She’s now competing all-around for the Panthers and is “doing a nice

Skating in Hockey City Classic

job,” Homan said. The Panthers have 14 gymnasts on their roster, but a group of six are handling most of the varsity events. In addition to Lemley, those are junior captains Bailey Elbers and Alyssa Woodbury, sophomore Emma Johnson and eighth-graders Cali Berg and Sofie Johnson. “The girls are doing a phenomenal job,” Homan said. “We still have to remember that some of them are eighth- and 10thgraders and still have a lot of room to grow. Although North lost a couple of its high scorers from last season, this year’s Panthers have gymnasts capable of posting representative third and fourth scores for team competition. “We’re hoping to have some individual qualifiers for state, but

we’re probably stronger as a team this year than individually,” Homan said. Some of the Panthers’ junior varsity gymnasts are competing for the first time this season, but Homan said she found it encouraging that the girls were taking advantage of a year-round training program the school has implemented. Coaches from outside the North program are brought in to work with the girls during the periods Homan and her staff are not allowed to because of Minnesota State High School League rules. The Panthers held their annual Lakeville North Invite on Jan. 11 and scored 140.45 points, finishing eighth in a 16-team field that included the top three teams in the Class AA state rankings and two

of the top three in Class A. Homan said that was about where she thought the Panthers would finish. North defeated Apple Valley on Tuesday to remain undefeated in the South Suburban Conference. The Panthers will compete at Rosemount at 6 p.m. Jan. 28 in a meet that likely will determine the conference title. Rosemount, which is ranked fourth in the state and has scored in the mid140s, would appear to be the favorite, but Homan said the Panthers believe they have a chance. “Last year when we competed against Rosemount it came down to tenths (of a point),” the coach said. “I think it could be that way again this year. You just never know.”

Jackie Richter, formerly head volleyball coach at Minneapolis Southwest, has been named to the same position at Lakeville North, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported last week. She will replace Walt Weaver, who coached the Panthers for two years following Milan Mader’s retirement. Weaver, a hall of fame coach who had more than 600 victories at Apple Valley, had said he viewed himself as an interim coach at Lakeville North while the school

sought a permanent replacement. North was 58-6 the last two seasons, winning the state Class 3A championship in 2012 and finishing second to eventual state champion Eagan in the 2013 Section 3 final.

SCHMITTY, from 1A

A fond farewell

munity. When Lakeville North High School junior Alyssa Ettl was killed in a Dec. 4 car crash, Schmitty & Sons donated buses during the roadside memorial service and funeral, providing a special coach bus for the family. Sue said they understood the devastation of losing a child, and wanted to do what they could to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew something needed to be done,â&#x20AC;? Sue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weather was so awful and freezing cold. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what you do, you step up to do what you can to help families deal with it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one less thing to worry about in the tragedy.â&#x20AC;? The ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; community focus is also evidenced by their companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charitable involvement in programs that include Toys for Tots/KSTP Stuff the Bus; 360 Communities and Meals on Wheels. Schmitty & Sons has also been recognized for numerous perfect bus inspections for school and transit, and awarded for outstanding service and safety records of their drivers, according to the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce. The company has received recognition from numerous organizations, including the National School Transportation Association, the Minnesota School Bus Operators Association and the University of Minnesota Center for Transportation, according to the chamber. Looking forward, the couple have no plans to retire and intend to keep operations moving forward in and around Lakeville for years to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place means a lot to us,â&#x20AC;? Dan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is where we plan on staying the rest of our lives.â&#x20AC;?

150 and operating Minnesota Valley Transit Authority buses throughout the state, including motor coaches and mini coaches. It employs more than 400 people, most of them Lakeville-area residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really expanded,â&#x20AC;? Sue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just sure Schmitty never envisioned weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be as big as we are. Lord knows, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Sue said Schmitty shook up school bus service when he successfully timed routes to transport high schoolers, empty the bus, move to the junior high and elementary routes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of a revolutionary idea at the time,â&#x20AC;? Sue said. Many improvements have occurred in the industry, including the ability to have constant communication via two-way radios. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the old days, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that,â&#x20AC;? Sue said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes a huge difference.â&#x20AC;? She recalled a breakdown she experienced while driving kindergartners to school and not having any way to notify the company of her dilemma. She lined the 5- and 6-year-olds up behind her, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a mother duckâ&#x20AC;? marched them to a nearby farm to get help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In those days, you knew everyone in town,â&#x20AC;? Sue said. Dan said when he drove, he enjoyed seeing the children grow up, an opportunity still available to drivers who seek the same routes today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of drivers who have been with us for years,â&#x20AC;? Dan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it necessarily for the money; they like the kids.â&#x20AC;? He said the company has a strong Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelcommitment to the Lakeville com- mann@ecm-inc.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville January 24, 2014 13A

DODD, from 1A 205th Street between Ipava and Jacquard, which she described as a relatively busy, narrow road that is a popular route between the two high schools. She said it is very close to the water and has no barrier between the road and the lake. Little said it is time for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a full and comprehensive discussion about school road safety in Lakeville.â&#x20AC;? When told of Littleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, Alyssa Ettlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Matt Ettl, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we need to look at,â&#x20AC;? but he expressed frustration that improvements to the mile of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North have been put off for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that road should have been fixed a long time ago,â&#x20AC;? Ettl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve truly been looking at it for 10 years, then shame on whoeverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in those chairs.â&#x20AC;? County and city officials have said the road improvements were delayed because the development to help fund them dropped in the recession. City Administrator Steve Mielke recently reported the most recent estimates to design, acquire right of way and reconstruct Dodd Boulevard from 194th to 185th Dodd Boulevard section near Lakeville North is $6.1 million. He said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 45 percent share of the cost is $2,771,955. Mielke said the city has collected roughly $185,000 in escrows from four subdivisions on the west side of the road. Interest has grown the escrow to about $220,000. Those escrows reduce the city share of the total estimated cost. Right of way acquisition is estimated at $1,574,700, according to Mielke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As development on the east side of the road occurs, the right of way

â&#x20AC;˘

â&#x20AC;&#x153; Something needs to happen to that section of road. I think it needs to happen sooner rather than later. I think if people conclude that a stretch of road that gets four times as much traffic with your children involved is not a priority, then maybe we should take a second look at it.

will go down due to the dedication of right of way by the developers, and we will acquire additional escrows,â&#x20AC;? Mielke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thus the cost of the project goes down substantially by waiting for the subdivisions to be developed.â&#x20AC;? Ettl expressed frustration at the development situation. He suggested the city and county stop approving more development near the road that will add more traffic without improving the area of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. Plans for that roadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upgrade have been discussed but delayed since 2006. The project is currently set for 2018, but city and county officials have indicated they may move the timeline up as they review Capital Improvement Plans and prioritize funding later this year. Ettl cited concerns about two new developments moving forward before any work is done to address safety on Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. The City Council approved a preliminary plat for two developments at its Jan. 21 meeting that would add about 100 housing units near the Dodd Boulevard section of road by Lakeville North from 185th Street to 195th Street. Preliminary plat approval was granted for Kyla Crossing, 15 acres lo-

cated off County Road 50 where Cross Nursery used to stand. The development would add 40 single-family homes off nearby Ipava Avenue, where heavy traffic levels have also raised safety concerns, especially because it is the primary access for Kenwood Trail Middle School. Traffic concerns regarding the new development were addressed in several ways, including the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirement for enough right of way to allow the planned widening of Ipava Avenue into a four-lane road, and adding a cul-de-sac on a road originally intended to connect to Ipava Avenue. When the property adjacent to Kyla Crossing develops, it is expected to provide another neighborhood access to the development. At the same meeting, the council also granted preliminary plat approval for Summerlyn North, a 62 single-family home development on 34 acres east of Dodd Boulevard and south of 190th Street, also close to the Lakeville North section of Dodd Boulevard. With the project will come road upgrades to 190th, a gravel two-lane section, and improved turn lanes onto Dodd Boulevard. Ettl cited concerns about the additional traffic the developments would bring, and questioned why

live in a home on three acres off Dodd Boulevard and 259th Street. The $9 million project will double the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right of way for paved shoulders, add turn lanes, straighten curves along the five-mile stretch and reduce hills. The Meyers contend there are cheaper alternatives to improve safety and worry the improvements will make the road more dangerous than it is now because it will invite more traffic. Al Meyer cited particular concern about 18-wheelers that take the road as a shortcut to reach Interstate 35. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This road wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t designed as a truck route,â&#x20AC;? Al Meyer said. He suggested a cheaper way to make the road safer is to widen the road within its current right of way instead of going with plans to double it, post signs banning 18-wheelers from using it, improve enforcement and reduce the speed limit. Candy Meyer questioned whether the improvements being done are all needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting a right-turn lane in front of our property to go onto 259th Street, this little block-and-a-half gravel road,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 people that live on the whole thing. I said we have more traffic in our driveway than they do on that gravel road. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter, it gets a right-turn lane.â&#x20AC;? Improvements to that portion of Dodd Boulevard are primarily funded through a federal grant that Assistant County Engineer Brian Sorenson said requires a local match and restricts its use to rural connector roads. The Meyers do support some improvements to the road, especially the roundabout Scott County is installing at the end of Dodd Boulevard and Pillsbury, where there have been multiple car crashes,

but they suggested the county and city could focus their funds to improve roads near schools. They both agreed improving Dodd Boulevard by the high school is a higher priority than the portion of road in their area. Not all of the Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; neighbors agree that the south portion of Dodd Boulevard should be considered less of a priority than the section by Lakeville North. Daryl McNab called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very dangerous road,â&#x20AC;? that is curvy, hilly and has narrow, steep ditches he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;death traps.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I empathize with everyone north,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Dodd south of 70 also needs to be fixed.â&#x20AC;? Ettl expressed frustration about how difficult it is for government to do seemingly simple things, like reducing the speed limit. County officials have said the state sets speed limits in rural roads at 55 miles per hour, as it is on the Dodd Boulevard section near Lakeville North. The county has applied to the state for a speed study, a requirement before any changes can be made. Ettl said he travels the road frequently, and often encounters school buses filled with students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been up and down that road many times since Alyssaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accident,â&#x20AC;? Ettl said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen buses going up and down it and I think about a bus losing control on that road with 50 or 60 kids on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something needs to happen to that section of road,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it needs to happen sooner rather than later. I think if people conclude that a stretch of road that gets four times as much traffic with your children involved is not a priority, then maybe we should take a second look at it.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Matt Ettl

the mile stretch on Dodd Boulevard was not included in the 2013 upgrades to nearby 185th Street and Highview Avenue completed last summer. He also asked why Dakota County is prioritizing spending millions upgrading Dodd Boulevard south of County Road 70 in rural Eureka Township instead of upgrading the road next to Lakeville North that leads to a student parking lot. That two-year project is scheduled to start this spring. The five-mile stretch of Dodd Boulevard is also winding, narrow and the site of multiple accidents, but the county and state agree traffic counts do not match the amount of traffic on the road near Lakeville North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I empathize with people in that area, but in the section where Alyssaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accident was there is four times more traffic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to see something done right, with some logic, not the traditional government process.â&#x20AC;? Ettl said he recognizes that there are financial considerations, but agrees with the Lakeville School Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jan. 14 resolution requesting Dakota County and Lakeville place a high priority on upgrading that portion of Dodd Boulevard near Lakeville North. He said Lakeville should use its 45 percent share of the costs for county road projects to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fix the most important things first,â&#x20AC;? which he said should be roads near schools that have higher traffic counts than rural sections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, something needs to be done. It probably needs to be done down south too, but I think when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re that close to a major high school, it should take a priority.â&#x20AC;? Some residents in the rural section set for Dodd Boulevard reconstruction agree with Ettl. Al and Candy Meyer

Thisweekend Maximum Hitchcock at the Steeple Center â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rear Windowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opens Hitchcock Film Series Jan. 31

by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steeple Center will be a hotbed of murder, suspense, secret agents and knife-wielding horror in coming months. The Rosemount Area Arts Council is kicking off its Hitchcock Film Series on Jan. 31 with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rear Window,â&#x20AC;? the 1954 suspense thriller starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly. Other Hitchcock films in the series include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vertigoâ&#x20AC;? (Feb. 28), â&#x20AC;&#x153;North by Northwestâ&#x20AC;? (March 28) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Psychoâ&#x20AC;? (April 25). The roster of Hitchcock films is the second installment in the arts councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing Classic Film Series, which began in March 2013 with a screening of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Casablanca.â&#x20AC;? For â&#x20AC;&#x153;Casablanca,â&#x20AC;? guests were encouraged to come dressed in attire inspired by the classic Humphrey Bogart film â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bogieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

iconic white suit, Ingrid Bergmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s khaki blazer, or Sydney Greenstreetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fez. For â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rear Window,â&#x20AC;? guests can come dressed in costume, though the arts council isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hyping that aspect of the screening this time around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; partly because the Alfred Hitchcock film is big on psychological thrills but not so much on memorable costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can come dressed in costume â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open to that and we like the festiveness, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not emphasizing that this time,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Kotz, the RAAC member chairing the Hitchcock series. As to why the arts council decided to shine the spotlight on Hitchcock for this season of films, classic-film buff Kotz said it was a matter of paying homage to one of the movie industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-time great directors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a difference between a good old movie and a classic film,â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ole & Lenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; renew vows

he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I honestly think that by watching a Hitchcock film youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching a master. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moviemaker magazine called him the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;most influential filmmaker of all time,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and you will hear other directors, modernday directors, say they have learned a lot from him. â&#x20AC;Ś He was known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;master of suspense,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and he was able to do these really neat, artsy-type of things with his films.â&#x20AC;? The arts council is renting a 14-foot screen for the Steeple Center showing of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rear Window,â&#x20AC;? and standard movie theater refreshments such as popcorn, candy and soda will be on offer. Tickets for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rear Windowâ&#x20AC;? are $6 and can be purchased at the Steeple Center, 14375 S. Robert Trail, and online at www. rosemountarts.com.

Comedy comes to Rosemount Arts council hosts â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comedy Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event Jan. 25 at Steeple Center by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Dennis Carney isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big fan of what comics refer to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;blueâ&#x20AC;? material. In other words, the 72-year-old standup comic from Savage likes to keep it clean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A comedian friend told me a long time ago, if you have to use the F-word to get a laugh, you might as well quit right now,â&#x20AC;? he said. Carney will be bringing his PG-rated routine to Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steeple Center on Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Rosemount Area Arts Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Comedy Clubâ&#x20AC;? event. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined at the show by two other comics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; William Hill and Pizpor the Magician â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from his Car-Den Productions comedy group, which hosts standup events throughout the Twin Cities about twice a month. Hill, an impressionist, does comedic takes on celebrities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rodney Dangerfield. Renaissance Festival veteran Pizpor the Magician is billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the finest magician to ever emerge from the tick-infested forests of northern Minnesota.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comic magician whose act hinges on flubbing sleights of hand and stage illusions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very good magician, but things always go wrong,â&#x20AC;? Carney said. Carney, who retired in 2000 after nearly four decades working in the production department at the Pioneer Press, said he got interested in doing comedy after joining Toastmasters, the nonprofit which aims to build public speaking and leadership skills. Carney began honing his standup skills at open-mic nights at Twin Cities comedy venues such as the Joke Joint and Acme Comedy Club. Recruiting

some of the other comics he met at those events, Carney formed the CarDen troupe and started staging his own shows. A fan of Jack Benny and Jay Leno, Carney said self-effacing humor is at the heart of his act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, I poke fun at myself,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Jan. 25 show is the first of what Rosemount Area Arts Council members hope will be a series of comedy nights. A second event featuring the Car-Den comics is scheduled for March 8. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. Jan. 25 show are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Steeple Center, 14375 S. Robert Trail, and online at www.rosemountarts.com.
