Water, sewer rates to rise in Lakeville City to incur debt to help buffer increases set to take effect in 2014 by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville residents’ water and sewer rates are projected to increase steadily for the next decade. Without the increases and proposal to issue debt to cover costs, the city anticipated both its water and sewer funds will run dry between 2017 and 2021, according to an analysis conducted by the

city’s consultant, Springsted Inc. Under the plan, Lakeville’s water rates are proposed to increase 4.25 percent every year from 2014-23. Lakeville property owners’ sewer rates would rise by 6.35 percent annually from 2014-16, then increase by 6 percent in 2017, under proposals reviewed by City Council members in a Nov. 25

workshop. From 2018-21, projected sewer rate increases are 2.9 percent annually, and from 2022-23, that rate increases by 2.5 percent annually. The average quarterly residential water and sewer bill is expected to rise steadily from its current level of $82.36 per quarter to $119.73 per quarter in 2022, according to a Nov. 25 memo by Springsted.

In addition, Lakeville plans to issue debt for capital projects to minimize rate increases and maintain sufficient cash levels in each fund. The city is proposing to issue four series of debt financing from 2014-22 that would total $15.8 million for the water fund and $2.2 million for the city’s sewer fund. The utility increases and debt plans are needed

for the city to pay operating costs, capital expenses, debt coverage and still maintain some cash reserves, Springsted concluded. According to the Springsted memo, the city’s water and sewer fund income and net income has been consistently negative since 2009. The city’s water fund See RATES, 13A

Train movements ahead

After months of budget negotiations, Lakeville City Council members agreed in a Nov. 25 work session to increase the city’s levy by 2.5 percent ($578,811) in 2014. According to the city, 2.2 percent of the levy increase will be absorbed by the growth of the city’s tax base due to new development. In September, the City Council approved a levy of $23.9 million, but was able to reduce it to $23.6 million by reducing overtime and accounting for expected savings derived by a new fleet management position and enhanced code enforcement.

Progressive Rail installed warning signs at the Jaguar Path off of County Road 50 on Nov. 25 announcing it would be moving train cars the following day. Previously, some train movements have caused traffic headaches throughout Lakeville, particularly at the Jaguar intersection because it is that neighborhood’s only access road. The signs are part of an increased notification process Progressive Rail agreed to at the city’s request, according to Community Development Director Dave Olson. City Administrator Steve Mielke said the system includes an option for people to receive notices when the city is informed of train movements. The link can be found at www.ci.lakeville.mn.us. Train movements are planned midday. “Our hope is that if people have advance notification, they can also be aware and plan accordingly,� Mielke said. Progressive Rail President Dave Fellon declined to comment on the issue. (Photo submitted)

City Council tables issue to seek resolution to educational and government fee dispute by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Current Lakeville Charter cable customers could be on the hook for years of back fees the city says it’s owed. Charter Communications has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Lakeville disputing the city’s findings that the company violated its franchise agreement and owes Lakeville $565,928. The company’s lawsuit demands a jury decide the case. Lakeville officials earlier this year asserted Charter should have been charging customers 50 cents per subscriber for educational and

government fee and turning it over to the city for the past 15 years. At first, the city claimed Charter owed almost $1 million in back fees, but has since determined it can legally recoup only six years of unpaid fees at 6 percent interest rate to total $565,928. Charter officials claim the city relieved the company of charging the EG fee in 1999, and never asked for the money before, despite two audits since signing the franchise agreement in November 1998. Charter has been charging customers the 50 cents per-subscriber EG fee since August, and according to a Nov. 18 letter from Charter

to City Administrator Steve Mielke, will raise its rates in January. In the letter, LeeAnn Herrera, Charter’s government relations director, stated the company is increasing its rates to “reflect cost changes in the marketplace.� Charter’s broadcast TV surcharge will increase from $2.15 to $3.50, and most services, including limited basic and expanded service, will increase by $1; Latino View will rise from $5 to $6.99 per month. Repeated past negotiations by the city and Charter officials have failed to result in a settlement, and a public hearing before the City Council was held Nov. 4.

Both sides presented their case, and the council directed staff to develop findings of fact that the company was in material breach of its franchise contract, which specifies Charter is to pay the EG fee to the city. The City Council was scheduled to pass a resolution approving those findings of fact Nov. 18, but tabled action on it. Mielke said in a closeddoor session, the council chose to delay action for two weeks to allow additional time for negotiations with Charter. “Both sides would like to see the issue settled out of court, but there are differences between the two

parties,� Mielke wrote in an email to the newspaper. He said he, Mayor Matt Little and city attorneys met with Charter on Nov. 22, but the two sides did not reach a settlement. “If we cannot agree to a solution, the council will decide whether to proceed with the findings and decision,� Mielke stated. The franchise contract expired Nov. 1 but in October, the City Council extended it to June 1, 2014, to allow time to resolve the issue. The issue is scheduled to return for City Council review at its Dec. 2 meeting. Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

He said the most difficult part of being in the military was being away from his family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his parents Shirley Fors and David Lane and five siblings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was stressful and worrisome for them to have me deployed,â&#x20AC;? Lane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were relieved and thankful I made it home safe.â&#x20AC;? Military members recognized with the grant also received a Timberwolves jersey at the game.

A Lakeville soldier is one of three servicemen to receive a $500 grant from the Minnesotans Military Appreciation Fund as thanks for his service. Army Spc. Josh Lane, 24, was presented with a $500 grant at the Nov. 16 Minnesota Timberwolves game from the fund. The fund is a statewide fundraising initiative by the citizens of Minnesotans for Minnesota Military, a nonprofit corporation formed to raise money to provide cash grants to military members from Minnesota.

After five years of service, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to celebrate Farmington the first in Minnesota to earn Beyond the Yellow Ribbon designation by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Helping military veterans and their families is a noble venture, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to know where to start. Five years ago the Minnesota National Guard was looking for a way to guide communities to help reintegrate service members back to civilian life and support their families. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any structure, so a group of citizens in Farmington worked with the National Guard and Minnesota Humphrey Institute to create a Yellow Ribbon Network of community groups in schools, churches and businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to answer one question: How can we be a community that goes over and above helping our service members and their families?â&#x20AC;? Annette Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We documented what works and what doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. It became the blueprint for Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.â&#x20AC;? At the time, Kuyper was working for Target Corporation while her son was deployed, and she was looking for ways to help. Kuyper initiated the pro-

gram and now oversees the entire Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program as the director of military outreach with the Department of Military Affairs. There are 198 Beyond the Yellow Ribbon communities in Minnesota, including all of the large cities in Dakota County. Farmington was the first, and now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to celebrate. A five-year anniversary gala will begin with an hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvre reception at 6 p.m. and a program at 7 p.m. Dec. 6 in the Farmington High School auditorium. Speakers include Gov. Mark Dayton, retired M a j . G e n . Larry Shellit o , a n d the adjutant general of the Minnesota National Guard, Richard Nash. There will be a performance by the North Star Brass Quintet from the 34th Infantry Division Band and a video showcasing the efforts of the past five years. The event is free. There is no need to RSVP. The Farmington Yellow Ribbon committee has 25 members who meet once a month along with about 300 volunteers and student chapter at the high school. The group holds monthly veteran dinners at 6 p.m. on first Monday of every month September through May at a rotating location among 18

area churches and Dakota Electric. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to make sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve connected with every military veteran in the community,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. They also have a team of volunteers who help military families with a variety of tasks such as moving, snow shoveling, lawn care and house cleaning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Initially it was to help families with deployed members, but we sup-

port veterans of any age,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has really helped our community come together.â&#x20AC;? The Farmington Police Department also informs the committee if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a military veteran in crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found help for a homeless veteran before,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help financially, but we can connect them with resources. There hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a request we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met.â&#x20AC;?

The program is getting national attention. Last February, Kuyper went to Washington, D.C., to visit with first lady Michelle Obama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First lady Michelle Obama and her team want to get something started across the country,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become the national model for grassroots support for the military. It really was this group in Farmington

that got it started and it was the success that got it started in the state.â&#x20AC;? It all started in Farmington about five years ago when Gov. Tim Pawlenty proclaimed Farmington to be the first Yellow Ribbon community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a phenomenal five years,â&#x20AC;? Kuyper said.

Opinion Congratulations, concerns about school referendum victories by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Congratulations to the many parents, community members and educators who produced a record approval rate of local district referendums. This was a huge amount of work, especially in an economy that is challenging for many Minnesotans. According to the Minnesota School Boards Association, 51 of 59 operating levies were approved. That’s 86.4 percent, higher than any other year since the association began keeping records in 1980. Moreover, 23 of 26 requests for buildings or other capital expenses were approved – an 88 percent approval rating. “We presented this referendum as a choice for our community and are pleased with the increased voter turnout compared to similar previous elections,” Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Superintendent Jane Berenz responded. “We are thankful that two-thirds of participating voters chose to increase the community’s investment in our schools in order to maintain the quality programs that have and continue to make Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan a school district of choice.” She said that without the additional $10 million per year that the new levy will provide, the district would have had to cut the budget again by increasing class sizes and eliminating programs like fifth-grade band and ninth-grade B-team sports. “(Those) are key components of our district’s Triple A philosophy of providing students a variety of opportunities in academics, the arts and athletics,” she

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan said. “The vast majority of people will admit the value that a well-respected school district adds to a community and to individual property values,” she wrote. “In this election, a strong majority (67 percent) said they are willing to pay more to maintain what we have in District 196.” Similar support was shown for the Lakeville Area School District when nearly the same percentage of yes votes gave the district an additional $5.6 million a year for 10 years. During the decade since the district has gone without new levy money, it has cut programs like arts, fifth-grade band and high school industrial technology. Based on board priorities, the new funds will stabilize the budget, maintain programs and introduce science, math, technology and engineering opportunities. Other districts experienced similar success on Election Day. Mounds View schools’ $11.5 million annual amount will keep class sizes at the current levels and maintain current programs. Osseo’s $9 million per year for 10 years will help retain current class sizes, extra-curricular activities, and longer bus routes. A second $5 million is slated for

technology. “Voters understood the need and determined that they supported the work we are doing to get improved student achievement results,” Superintendent Kate Maguire wrote. “Voters appreciated that the School Board listened deeply to community feedback last spring and took the $3.1 million in cuts for this current school year in places that had the least impact on direct classroom instruction.” Bloomington school will get an infusion of $6 million a year for 10 years for safety and security measures to better prepare, protect and respond to future school emergencies, and for educational technology to transform learning, and to engage and empower personalized learning experiences for all students. Hopkins schools will receive $3.1 million annually for 10 years for general operations and passed a capital projects levy for improvements to security, food service, technology and curriculum. Orono schools will use levy funds to expand world language program and improvements STEM education and college and career readiness services. However – and I mean no disrespect to all who worked hard and successfully to win approval for additional funds – I think it’s a mistake for the U.S. to be an outlier among nations in our reliance on local property taxes. The widely respected Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development reports that about 27 percent of education funding comes from local sources in the European and Asian countries it works with, while in the U.S. it’s 53 percent.

This year’s victories add to inequities in funding that 2013 Minnesota legislators were trying to discourage when they approved hundreds of millions of additional dollars to public education. For example, according to the Minnesota School Boards Association, here are varying additional amounts per pupil that some districts now have available to spend, based on approved operating levies: Hopkins, $2,319.43; Osseo, $1,989.29; Orono, $1,861.71; Stillwater, $1,536.47; Rosemount-Apple ValleyEagan, $1,485.95; Mounds View, $1,024; Little Falls, $948.11; Lakeville, $540; and Braham, $275.32. Greg Abbott, Minnesota School Boards Association communications director, pointed out that these figures do not necessarily reflect all previously approved levies. Trying to equalize opportunities, Minnesota’s 2013 Legislature approved, for example, more than $100 million to pay for all-day kindergarten in every district and charter public schools. Legislators did not want this research-based program potentially dependent on whether local taxpayers approved funding for it. Resolving these dilemmas is the subject for another day. Many Minnesotans said “yes” to more money and better facilities for public schools. That’s a strong affirmation, especially in troubled times.

Fifty years after President Kennedy’s death, youth never restored by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The heartbeat of the United States skipped a beat Nov. 22, 1963, when our 35th President John F. Kennedy at age 46 was assassinated on the streets of Dallas, Texas. It has been 50 years and that heartbeat of our nation has never been the same. We lost not only a sense of youth on that day, but also a sense of innocence. Many of our nation’s populous was not around 50 years ago but those of us who were have tried to keep the memory of a popular world leader alive. Even every president since, and there have been nine of them, have tried to capture some of that charisma presented by Kennedy, his young wife and their two children. The 50th anniversary of the assassination was not a celebration. It was a remembrance of memories we have of Kennedy and of the events surrounding the assassination. In the past few weeks, we have read about Kennedy’s administration and his assassination through books, magazines, newspapers and social media. Because of the beginning of Kennedy’s Technicolor presidency, we have been able to recall our memories very easily. Those of us who remember the four days beginning Nov. 22, 1963, recall

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Howard Lestrud where we were and what we were doing. Our younger generation, of course, remembers where and what as it relates to the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11, 2001. Kennedy only served 1,000 days and his administration suffered some early defeats including the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. His administration received some honorable grades as it dealt with the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1963 and as it handled civil unrest in the southern United States. On Aug. 5, 1963, during Kennedy’s presidency after more than eight years of difficult negotiations, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union signed the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. President Lyndon Johnson also spiked Kennedy’s achievements by pushing through key civil rights legislation in 1964. We were robbed of our future when an itinerant loner and loser, Lee Harvey Oswald, killed our president. The al-

leged assassin was also shot and killed by someone who could fit Oswald’s psychological makeup.  Questions remain about Kennedy’s death and fingers point to conspiracy with more than 60 percent of the population believing Oswald did not act alone. Many conspiracy theories exist but none have produced convincing evidence.

The spirit of John F. Kennedy still lives but our country has not been the same. We have a country that is still seeking a way to live and laugh together. Howard Lestrud is ECM Publishers political editor. Email him at howard.lestrud@ ecm-inc.com. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Letters Stop socialist government policies To the editor: Workers must share in hometown business success, said an guest column by John Van Hecke in the Nov. 15, 2013, edition. Van Hecke is an executive director and fellow at Minnesota 20/20. Minnesota 20/20 is a socialist, liberal, highly partisan think tank that supports smart growth, global warming, light rail and Obama’s Unaffordable Care Act. If I missed any of their other positions, I apologize. Van Hecke cites in the

column that Enrique Barcenas works for Prestige Cleaning as a janitor and cleans Target for $8 an hour. Van Hecke cites that wages have not kept pace with inflation. That’s true but government regulation, excessive taxation, and Federal Reserve unchecked money growth are causing increased prices everywhere. The Democrat warehouse tax of 6.5 percent due to go into effect in February will gouge Minnesotans like Enrique dearly every time he goes to the grocery store or any business that has a warehouse. Van Hecke cites a minimum wage of $9.50 an hour

as something policymakers should support. Business will have to lay people off if wages were increased to $9.50 an hour, and many are stretched to the limit in this weak economy. Companies, unlike government, have to make a profit, and if they don’t, they go out of business. USA Today cited that ballot initiatives to increase the minimum wage are being proposed to drive voter turnout and help Democrats in midterm elections in 2014. So, does Van Hecke care about Enrique or only about helping the Democrats in the 2014 midterm Congressional elections? We need job creation,

Volunteer trio gives one last year to Armful of Love Holiday gift program will serve 1,100 families by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Bill McReaken served in the Navy Supply Corps and worked as a vehicle fleet manager for the old ConTel phone company. These days, the 70-yearold Burnsville resident is field general of the dropoff and pickup depot for the annual Armful of Love holiday gift program. McReaken calculates per-family storage space for the clothes and toys sponsors buy needy families. He knows the aisle width between storage rows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should see him with his blue 3M tape,â&#x20AC;? said Kathryn Archambault, volunteer and community relations coordinator for Burnsville-based nonprofit 360 Communities, which has run Armful of Love for some four decades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What he can do with a ruler and 3M tape amazes me, let me tell you.â&#x20AC;? McReaken is one of a trio of longtime Armful volunteers who are retiring this year. Bill, his wife, Lorna, and Carla Mathwig, of Apple Valley, will end their years of service after recipient families pick up their gifts over a three-day period in mid-December. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just any volunteers in a program that runs on dozens of them. Archambault is Armful of Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff overseer, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the McReakens and Mathwig â&#x20AC;&#x201D; working 40- to 50-hour weeks from October through December â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who make sure everything gets done, from interviewing recipient families to securing storage space and adding lastminute supplements to gift packages.

(Photo by John Gessner) â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have really touched more lives in the community than we know,â&#x20AC;? Archambault said. The longest-serving of the three is Mathwig, 58, an Armful volunteer for nearly 30 years. Now a grandmother, she and her husband, Bill, had three young children when they first sponsored a family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I thought it was a wonderful learning experience for my kids,â&#x20AC;? Mathwig said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What a wonderful program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I want to help more.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Lorna McReaken was director of Rainbow Christian Preschool in Burnsville, gathering pre-Christmas donations of socks, hats and other items for Armful of Love when she signed on as a volunteer 15 years ago.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got Bill started,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were looking for a volunteer opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Lorna, 64, remembers the first time she worked at an Armful gift distribution. Some families, she said, are overwhelmed to receive multiple trash bags full of gifts. Sponsors, assigned individual families, are asked to buy two clothing items for each child and are also given two toy suggestions. Parents can request a gift, too â&#x20AC;&#x201D; maybe a toaster, a blender, a sweatshirt. And most packages come with a grocery-store gift certificate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have people come in and they just start crying. ... And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I think you get hooked,â&#x20AC;? Lorna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tears flow both ways,â&#x20AC;? Mathwig added.

Over the years Armful has had both paid and volunteer coordinators, but for at least five years itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been almost strictly volunteer, Bill said. The McReakens and Mathwig became volunteer coordinators through experience and persistence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to joke that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the three that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smart enough to go home,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. He began coordinating gift storage 14 years ago, after his predecessor got married and moved away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it just kind of grew from there,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got bigger and bigger and I was taking care of more and more gifts, and then I finally took over the data end of it because I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting good data to help me figure out where to

space and the other four square feet are part of the aisle that serves it. It really works out that I generally get around 5 to 7 square feet per family.â&#x20AC;? Interviewing prospective families begins in October at 360 Communities headquarters. By that time, organizers must know how many income-qualified families they can accept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a bigger need than we can handle out there,â&#x20AC;? Mathwig said, and unserved families who apply to Armful are referred to other agencies. The program has a supplemental gift room for items that sponsors may have missed or left off a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish list. The three volunteer coordinators are always willing to hunt for supplemental gifts, have them wrapped and add them to a package, Archambault said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since working with them the last two years, I have noticed that there is so much that they do behind the scenes that nobody every realizes,â&#x20AC;? she said. By the time pickup is finished on Dec. 15, about 245 volunteers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 45 at 360 Communities and some 200 at the warehouse â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have been involved, Bill said. Next year at this time, he and his wife would rather be traveling or relaxing. And Mathwig said she has two more grandchildren on the way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to be a hunter,â&#x20AC;? Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still like to be. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been eight years since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out in the woods.â&#x20AC;?

put everything.â&#x20AC;? The storage space, where sponsors deliver gifts one week and families pick them up the next, is crucial. Armful has occupied a variety of spaces in the south metro area, from the old Lakeville jail to its current location â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the old Farmers Insurance space in the Kraus-Anderson building at 609 W. Travelers Trail in Burnsville. With 12,000 square feet, it accommodates gift storage for 1,100 families, up from the 940 Armful did last year in a smaller space in the same building. During his tenure, the program has served up to 1,500 families, Bill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have 10 square feet for every fami- John Gessner can be reached ly,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be at (952) 846-2031 or email six square feet of storage john.gessner@ecm-inc.com.

An unruly crowd, a gun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and then chaos lead to charges by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spoon restaurant has closed, but a chaotic scene that transpired there late one night last year has resulted in criminal charges for a Brooklyn Center man. Davonte M. Lynn, 20, was charged in district court Nov. 12 with felony terroristic threats for allegedly pointing a gun at a crowd in the parking lot of the Asian fusion restaurant at 14871 Granada Ave. According to the criminal complaint, Apple Valley police were called to the restaurant around 2 a.m. Oct. 27, 2012, on a report of 20 to 30 people fighting in the parking lot. Upon arrival, officers were asked by restaurant employees to assist with the out-of-control crowd, and police subsequently ordered everyone to leave the parking area, which was covered with debris, empty bottles, jewelry, glasses and other items. As the crowd began to

disperse, two women approached police to report that a man â&#x20AC;&#x201C; matching Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description â&#x20AC;&#x201C; had pulled out a gun during the commotion in the parking lot and pointed it at the crowd before boarding a party bus. As the women were giving their account, other officers on the scene pulled Lynn off the party bus because he was yelling threats â&#x20AC;&#x153;to shoot peopleâ&#x20AC;? out the party bus window, the complaint said. Security personnel at Spoon confirmed the gun-pointing allegation, reporting that the suspect â&#x20AC;&#x153;pointed the handgun toward several people in the crowd and then lunged forward twice,â&#x20AC;? causing people to flee in panic, according to the complaint. Though police located Lynn on the party bus, they did not locate the gun he allegedly possessed. If convicted, Lynn faces up to five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. The incident involving Lynn was among the host of police incidents and

fire code violations on record when the Apple Valley City Council voted to deny renewal of Spoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor license in January of this year. Apple Valley police Chief Jon Rechtzigel told the City Council that since May of 2011 police had responded to at least eight incidents that occurred during â&#x20AC;&#x153;hip hopâ&#x20AC;? and nightclub-type events at Spoon. During one call to the restaurant, police observed unlicensed â&#x20AC;&#x153;security guardsâ&#x20AC;? carrying loaded handguns while consuming alcohol. Additionally, Apple Valley Fire Chief Nealon Thompson noted a total of 27 fire code violations at Spoon in a two-year period. Spoon owners Kav Theng and Van Ngo sold the assets to the business last summer. Fiesta Mexican Cuisine now operates out of the former Spoon space on Granada Avenue.

Finding hope to escape domestic violence Advocacy services work to combat, prevent domestic violence

Domestic abuse survivor encourages victims to seek help to end their abusive relationships by K.T. Bernhagen SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

by Natalie Conrad Domestic violence and abuse are difficult problems to solve, but there is hope. Before or after law enforcement steps in, a variety of advocacy services are available to help victims break free of domestic violence, whether their needs are physical, emotional, financial, legal or otherwise. Burnsville-based 360 Communities has operated Lewis House shelters for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence since 1979. The shelters have helped more than 65,000 survivors over that time. More than 2,500 women and children are supported annually at the sites in Eagan and Hastings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly seven victims per day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you start seeing those red flags, you should call an advocate,â&#x20AC;? Ann Sheridan, director of violence prevention for 360 Communities, said of 360â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trained volunteers and professionals who have prevented countless cases where violence would have escalated without intervention. Among the first steps is finding housing. Lewis House offers temporary housing for victims and advocates who help give them a safe and affordable place to live. They also help coordinate retrieval of belongings or going back to their home. While food shelf services are offered, 360 Communities also tends to the emotional side. Support groups meet regularly for both women and children who have been victims of abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can happen to anyone, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to believe it. There are a lot of abusive people out there.â&#x20AC;? The nonprofit is equipped to intervene and support families and victims by obtaining an order for protection, navigating the court system, setting up medical examinations, sorting out employment options and much more. 360 Communities trains advocates to help sexual assault survivors and provides support and services to family members and friends of sexual assault victims. They partner with schools, faith communities, service organizations and businesses to raise awareness about teen dating violence, bullying, date or acquaintance rape, sexual assault and harassment, and the effects and prevalence of domestic violence. Advocates teach students about peacemaking and conflict resolution,

I am a domestic abuse survivor. I would not be where I am today if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for the amazing people surrounding me. I was able to grow resilience because of the love and support I received from my friends, family and community. Speaking out about abuse is my way of giving back and expressing gratitude after escaping my abusive marriage. Love can be healthy, or love can be dysfunctional and dangerous. Love is not controlling. Love is not shame or blame. Abuse and control are not love. Adrenaline can trick you into thinking itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. I was in an abusive relationship for 13 years. While I was in it, I thought I was in love. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I got out that I was able to see clearly what my life had become. There was never a frontal attack that I would have recognized as abuse. It was just a continuous stream of actions and words disguised as jokes. Jane Gilgun, a professor with the University of Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College of Education and Human Development, calls it â&#x20AC;&#x153;kidding on the square,â&#x20AC;? which is putting someone down while presenting it as a joke. My example is a situation where my young daughter was sitting on the couch with her father. He looked into the kitchen at me and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at your mom. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so beautiful, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so hot. Too bad I hate everything else about her.â&#x20AC;? Is this a joke or a slam? Behavior like this eats away your self-esteem and makes you doubt yourself. My abuser used this type of behavior to get to me in a roundabout way, then he would turn it back on me, telling me that I was too sensitive or too emotional, which continued the pattern of self-doubt. Everything that went wrong in our relationship was always my fault. My life became a game of trying to be two steps ahead of him. Because of that, I unknowingly became the buffer between him and the world. I was exhausted because I was living two lives: his and mine. I thought it was love. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. What I thought was love was nothing more than adrenaline, guilt and fear. Emotional and psychological abuse does not leave the telltale marks of physical abuse, but they are just as damaging. Violence often begins with emotional abuse and threats, and then moves to physical abuse. Fifty-percent of all women will experience physical violence in an intimate relationship. Many will never be physically abused until the last

A welcome Thanksgiving surprise benefits many Anonymous Lakeville couple donate $1,400 to help struggling families by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Multiple Lakeville families had a happier Thanksgiving after an anonymous couple donated $1,400 worth of Cub Foods gift

SURVIVOR, from 1A almost homeless. His lies, gambling and abuse came to a head in 2007. I told him he needed to seek help for his behavior. When he realized he may be losing me, he became erratic and threatening. Please remember: If

HOPE, from 6A lationship skills through Preventing Abuse and Violence through Education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For domestic violence especially, we want to make sure they understand power and if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it to hurt someone,â&#x20AC;? said Barton Erickson, a school-based prevention coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Also recognizing the use of gender or feminine terms is key.â&#x20AC;? PAVE is in 17 schools in the Cornerstone service area. PAVE educators start in elementary schools to educate young children on family violence, self-esteem and healthy communication. In junior high, PAVE educators focus on agerelated issues around family abuse and violence in the schools. Educators not only focus on classroom presentations but

cards to local schools to distribute to financially struggling families. The couple sent a $100 card to each of the 14 schools in the Lakeville School District with a Nov. 16 letter that quoted Bible verses and expressed their desire to help others. They asked that the Cub Foods gift cards be given to a student â&#x20AC;&#x153;whose family is struggling financially so they will have a nice Thanksgiving meal.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some families fall

through the cracks and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the assistance they need,â&#x20AC;? the letter stated. Bible verses cited in the letter sent to principals were Psalm 145:14-15 and 1 John 3:17: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how can Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love be in that person?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lord has blessed us and we want to pass on that blessing to others,â&#x20AC;?

the letter stated, signed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Lakeville couple.â&#x20AC;? Lakeville School District spokeswoman Linda Swanson said she cannot recall a similar donation in the 23 years she has worked in the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It warms my heart,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me know there are people out there who are generous and loving, and I hope they are getting a really good feeling out of this.â&#x20AC;? She said Orchard Lake Elementary Principal

Marilynn Smith was the first to notify others of the generous donation by posting a copy of the letter on Facebook. Other school officials replied they received an identical letter and gift card. As of last week, Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post had 287 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likes,â&#x20AC;? and there were 14 comments praising the Lakeville coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is so sweet and thoughtful,â&#x20AC;? wrote Clare Rambo Jordan.

you think you are in an abusive relationship, the most dangerous time is when you decide to leave. I turned to the community for support. First, I called the police. The Eden Prairie Police Department suggested that I go to Bloomington-based Cornerstone domestic abuse crisis program for help. I

did. Cornerstone helped me get my order for protection. The order didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that he was going to go away, but it gave me an opportunity to define my safety needs and created a foundation for me to get out. Over the last six years, my order has been amended â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fol-

low it. Held up by the Court of Appeals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he appealed it. Reissued every year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because he violated it. Last year, the order for protection against my abuser was extended for 10 more years. There is no stereotypical abused person. You

cannot recognize us by the color of our skin, the economic background we came from, the clothes we wear or our gender. Domestic abuse can happen to anyone. If you think you or someone you know is in an abusive situation, there is help. There are people and programs designed to

work with students, both individually and in group settings, on family abuse issues, healthy relationships, anger management, communication skills at home and in school, bullying and harassment. In high school, PAVE educators focus on dating abuse and violence in the home, peer relationships and violence prevention in school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For their first relationship ever, learning whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy is really important,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. Fairview Hospitals is a referral for more extreme cases, typically when significant mental health or substance abuse problems arise. Domestic violence between parents or relatives is commonly at the root of a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behavior problems, especially relationship issues, and PAVE educators are prepared to

contact child protection services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up is an extremely confusing place to be when parents both love and hurt each other,â&#x20AC;? Erickson said. PAVE educators aim to reach students through a variety of platforms of new media and technology. Erickson said their ultimate goal is to make things relevant and tangible and to make change.

which does not limit itself to physical control,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting children involved, physical, emotional and financial. Every abuser uses different tools to put power and control over the victim.â&#x20AC;? Once signs of domestic violence have been observed involving family or friends, the most important thing is to be nonjudgemental, according to Bob Olson at Cornerstone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take the time to educate yourself about the dynamics of domestic violence,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to approach them and ask if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK.â&#x20AC;? Friends or loved ones of a victim or someone they think may need help are also encouraged to contact their local advocacy service or, more importantly, the police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see or hear something, call the po-

lice,â&#x20AC;? Becker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising to me how many people will hear domestic violence happen but not say something or call the police. If you hear abuse occur ... call 911.â&#x20AC;? Neighbors or family members of a person who they know or think is being abused can call 360â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confidential line at 952985-5300. Until provisions are taken or a safety plan is drafted, it may actually be safer for victims to stay in the relationship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they leave is the most dangerous time,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can work with them prior to leaving, develop safety plans on how to continue and take control.â&#x20AC;? Picking up the phone and asking for help is the first step â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is not an easy one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a lot of courage to pick up the phone

Say something As a bystander, domestic violence can be difficult to ascertain. There are many signs and red flags. The biggest sign is controlling and manipulative behavior, according to Jamie Olson, the domestic violence prevention coordinator at a Twin Cities police department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abusers use power and control over victims,

Fred Scott stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes me wanna cry.â&#x20AC;? Swanson said each school was distributing the funds in various ways, including one school that divided it into four $25 gift cards. She said the biggest problem is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who to thank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a good problem to have,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

help and protect. Cornerstone also lists red flags and myths on its website. I was helped by both Cornerstone and the Domestic Abuse Project of Minneapolis. K.T. Bernhagen shared this story with the public during an Oct. 7 domestic violence vigil in Eden Prairie.

and make that call,â&#x20AC;? Schmitt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is a process. They just need to know there is help in the community.â&#x20AC;? Domestic violence simply isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like other crimes, Jamie Olson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone steals your purse or robs you or burglarizes your home, you have no issues pursuing charges or cooperating with police, but when the person that assaults you is a spouse, a child, a parent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone you share a relationship with, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not stranger,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to understand that situation the victim is in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crime with a personal relationship attached to it.â&#x20AC;? Community editors Tad Johnson, Paul Groessel, Matt Hankey and Katy Zillmer also contributed to this article.

Local entrepreneur made his mark with drug store chain by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

From humble beginnings during the Great Depression in South Dakota farm country, John â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bobâ&#x20AC;? Vander Aarde found success in business as the owner of a chain of drug stores and Hallmark gift stores throughout the Twin Cities. The Apple Valley resident, who died Nov. 19 at age 88, sought to impart his work ethic to he and wife Ardelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight children, all of whom were expected to work in his stores â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first as baggers, then as clerks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by the time they turned 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He grew up in the Depression â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his dad worked a grain elevator, and they moved with the crops,â&#x20AC;? said daughter Jane Berenz of Apple Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any type of work was dignity. We were always taught to work very hard.â&#x20AC;? Before going into business, Vander Aarde served in World War II and then as a medic in the Korean War. In Korea, Vander Aarde didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see combat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; partly

Bob Vander Aarde

because his skills at the card game bridge caught the attention of a general, a bridge enthusiast who decided to keep Vander Aarde close at hand to help him improve at the game. After returning from Korea, he met his future wife at a Mardi Gras dance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ardelle was crowned princess at the dance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the couple married four months later. With a pharmacy degree from South Dakota State University, he opened his first Robert Drug Store in Rosemount in 1964. In the coming years he opened five more drug stores across the Twin Cities, as well as six Ardelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hallmark Gift Stores. Berenz, who is the superintendent of School District 196, recalls her father putting in 13-hour days, seven days a week at the first store in Rosemount. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the roads werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plowed, he would walk to the store in the snow so people could get their prescriptions,â&#x20AC;? said Berenz. Vander Aarde eventually sold the stores â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Rosemount location was bought by John Loch and became Loch Pharmacy;

YEA! Entrepreneurship underway in classrooms Lakeville ISD# 194 Middle Schools and All Saints Catholic Middle School have partnered with the Lakeville Area Chamber of Commerce to welcome the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!)  into the classroom. YEA! is an innovative program that guides students through the process of starting their own real business. Lakeville is excited to be the ďŹ rst community in Minnesota to be involved in this national program.  YEA! is the only pre-college program developed by an entrepreneur, at a university, with support from a major entrepreneurial foundation, the Kauffman Foundation and the United States Chamber of Commerce. Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program is already eight weeks underway and involves 23  area middle school students.  Classes are held Wednesdays for a nine month commitment period. In addition, the students have already toured businesses including BTD Manufacturing and Subway. The classroom setting provides time for students to brainstorm and form their enterprises, make pitches to potential investors, obtain funding, register their companies with governmental agencies, and actually launch their own company or social movement! Business mentors, graphic designers, and local entrepreneurs support the students throughout the program and all of the learning is real and experiential. 

By the end of the class, students own and operate fully-formed and functioning businesses, which may be carried after their graduation from the program. YEA! aims at teaching students at an early age how to make a job, not just take a job. Lakeville was speciďŹ cally chosen because of its reputation for academic excellence by Gayle Jagel, the CEO and founder of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.  By partnering with YEA!, both large and small businesses volunteer their time and services acting as business mentors, ďŹ eld trip hosts, guest lecturers, graphic designers, web developers, attorneys, etc. Community support strengthens the program, and the academy strengthens the community. One of the most interesting components of the program is the actual behind the scenes knowledge the students are given from local business leaders, who were at one time, standing in their shoes!  The experience is something they will be able to apply to whatever ďŹ eld they choose to enter, thereby giving them the necessary skills to become future leaders of industry. For more information on YEA, contact Todd Bornhauser at 952-469-2020 x1.

others were sold to the Snyders chain. In retirement, Vander Aarde continued to hone his bridge skills, and was a regular at bridge groups in Apple Valley and Burnsville. He also kept busy lending a hand with the accounting at his son Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business, Grand Slam Sports in Burnsville. Retirement also brought the opportunity to spend time with his many grandchildren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He took great pride in his family,â&#x20AC;? Berenz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though he was a very successful businessman, he would always say his greatest success was his family.â&#x20AC;? Vander Aarde was preceded in death by his wife, Ardelle. He is survived by his eight children, Bill (Myla), Susan (Lonnie) Bryan, Thomas (Coni), Nancy (Michael) Hodson, Jane (Gerard) Berenz, Julie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell, John (Elizabeth) and James Vander Aarde; and 19 grandchildren.

Foreclosures plummet in Farmington Housing market looking strong by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

At the epicenter of the recession in the mid-2000s were foreclosures, but more than six years later, the list is growing shorter. In 2012, there were 223 foreclosures in Farmington. In 2013 from January to October, there have been 62, according to the Dakota County Community Development Agency.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant improvement,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Commissioner Mike Slavik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are getting back into building. Countywide, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going down, but Farmington has done much better this year.â&#x20AC;? Farmington isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only city that has seen decreases. In Dakota County, from January to October, foreclosures decreased from 1,525 in 2012 to 820 in 2013. Notice of Pendency

numbers, which are filed by mortgage company attorneys to start the formal foreclosure process, are also down. From January to October 2012, there were 2,365. In 2013, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to 1,294. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speculation, but based on the cases we see, we do know many existing clients are going back to work,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Community Development Agency home ownership specialist Kwame OwusuAcheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 50 percent initially

came to us because they fell behind due to loss of income or reduction of income. Now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making enough to make the payments.â&#x20AC;? Increasing residential values have inspired homeowners to keep their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hear them say they want to stay in the home because the value has gone up,â&#x20AC;? Owusu-Acheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes more economic sense now to stay in the home.â&#x20AC;? Other reasons people

had for falling behind in payments were because they were struggling with their specific loan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Subprime mortgages were giving some people hardship,â&#x20AC;? Owusu-Acheampong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the people we see now have fairly good terms.â&#x20AC;? The CDA anticipates foreclosure notices will continue to decrease. The foreclosure epidemic infected Dakota County in 2007 and peaked in 2010. The CDA offers free mortgage

counseling for individuals struggling with their payments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the foreclosure situation is getting better, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here with foreclosure counseling,â&#x20AC;? homeownership specialist Shannon Gerving said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re struggling or have questions with the process, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Charting the Futureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: MnSCU forecasts changes by T.W Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees on Thursday, Nov. 20, adopted a set of recommendations aimed at fostering student success, better use of technology and more collaboration among the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 54 campuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot walk away from our responsibility to think critically about the future,â&#x20AC;? MnSCU Chancellor Steven Rosenstone said prior to trustees adopting the recommendations. Rosenstone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was installed as chancellor in October 2011 and has spoken forcefully about higher education reform â&#x20AC;&#x201C; last fall instructed three

workgroups, composed of MnSCU officials and students, to explore ways the system could better contribute to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prosperity. MnSCU officials heralded the perceived doggedness and thoroughness of the process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5,400 faculty and students participating in 108 feedback sessions across the state, according to MnSCU. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charting the Futureâ&#x20AC;? is controversial. The Inter Faculty Organization, representing 4,000 faculty at seven Minnesota state universities, earlier this year called draft recommendations a move toward â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soviet-style management,â&#x20AC;? according to media reports. St. Cloud State University President Earl Potter, Normandale Commu-

nity College President Joe Opatz and other MnSCU officials, appealing to the trustees, argued the purpose of the initiative was not to wrestle control away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough idea to put your arms around,â&#x20AC;? Potter said of grasping the essence of Charting the Future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last draft probably had too many answers in it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Still, some of his peers remain nervous, Potter believes. Trustees, too, described the recommendations as tempered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a power grab for centralization,â&#x20AC;? Trustee Margaret Anderson Kelliher said. But in a press release, the Inter Faculty Organization, while saying it

embraces the values and commitment inherent in Charting the Future, states the report seems to pit local autonomy and decentralization against collaboration and collective power. Further, the report â&#x20AC;&#x153;implicitlyâ&#x20AC;? endorses a one-size-fits-all model, the IFO contends. Yet it also portrays the â&#x20AC;&#x153;coreâ&#x20AC;? of Charting the Future as solid. The six recommendations are: â&#x20AC;˘ Dramatically increase the success of all learners, especially those in diverse populations. â&#x20AC;˘ Develop collaborative academic planning that advances affectability, transferability and access. â&#x20AC;˘ Certify student competencies and accelerate degree completion

through credit for prior learning and competencybased credit and degrees. â&#x20AC;˘ Expand the use of technology to deliver high-quality online courses as well as technologyenhanced instruction, student services and individualized learning and advising. â&#x20AC;˘ Deliver comprehensive workplace solutions to build employee skills and solve real-world problems for communities and businesses across the state. â&#x20AC;˘ Redesign financial and administrative models to reward collaboration, drive efficiencies and strengthen access to an extraordinary education for all Minnesotans. Rosenstone is expected to talk about implementing the recommendations

when appearing before the trustees in January. A number of trustees voiced their approval of the report. One spoke of Charting the Future as giving the permission to change. Vice Chair Thomas Renier called the report an â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptional piece of work.â&#x20AC;? Rosenstone stressed it was part of an ongoing process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The work is beginning â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is not the conclusion,â&#x20AC;? he said. Higher education cannot continue the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantasyâ&#x20AC;? that higher education funding will remain the same, and educators cannot ignore options, he said.

Eagan man accused of stealing from vulnerable adult in his care by Jessica Harper SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

An Eagan man is accused of taking thousands of dollars from a vulnerable adult in his care. Muhannah Samir Kakish, 40, was charged on Nov. 6 in Dakota County District Court with felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult and gross misdemeanor financial ex-

ploitation of a vulnerable adult. According to the criminal complaint, Kakish had guardianship over a man who was living in adult foster care and was responsible for managing the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money. Instead of paying the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent and personal expenses between Aug. 1, 2011, and Feb. 8, 2012, Kakish allegedly withdrew large sums of cash from the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account to gamble.

Kakish was the only person with access to the account, and also transferred money from the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account to his own. By October 2011 the bank closed the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account, which had a negative balance of $8,000. Upset he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receiving money for his personal care, the victim reported Kakish to Dakota County Social Services workers who called police.

In an interview with police on March 19, 2012, Kakish allegedly admitted to withdrawing money from the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account at casinos when his own accounts reached their daily limits. After taking the money, Kakish would transfer money into the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account. Kakish admitted to falling behind on the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent payments and other expenses, but

couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain why there were money transfers from the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s account into his own. If convicted, Kakish could face up to five years in prison for the felony count and up to one year in jail for the gross misdemeanor count.

LEVY, from 1A The fleet manager position was one that City Council members repeatedly questioned because of its $100,900 annual salary, including benefits. Their repeated inquiries led to a request that staff calculate the amount of potential savings that could be attained through better management of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive and growing supply of vehicles and equipment. Public Works Director Chris Petree estimated the positionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on fuel efficient strategies, improved equipment performance and implementation of a purchasing program could save $65,000 to $130,000 annually in 2015 and beyond. He also estimated the city would save $2,700 in overtime costs in its streets division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident if we hire this position, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see some significant cost savings in how we operate our fleet across the board,â&#x20AC;?

LETTERS, from 4A cut to unemployment insurance taxes paid by for-profit employers. The result is over $346 million in savings for Minnesota businesses over the next two years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly the kind of financial jolt that will help keep our economy healthy and growing over the coming years. Unemployment insurance taxes paid by businesses support a trust fund that provides temporary jobless benefits to workers who are laid off. During the recent recession, that trust fund went into a deficit because of larger demand for unemployment insurance benefits. In order to make up for the shortfall and make sure laid off workers could still receive income to pay their mortgage, put food on the table, and support their families, Minnesota raised the unemployment insurance tax rate and borrowed funds from the federal government. With our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy now on the upswing and new claims for unemployment insurance benefits down to their lowest level in about a decade, the trust fund is no longer running a deficit. In fact, the fund now has ample reserves, which is why we were able RATES, from 1A was at $5.9 million in 2009 because dry weather led to high consumption, but has decreased to approximately $3.2 million by the end of this year because of water main replacements and major maintenance projects, Springsted reported. Lakevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer fund has ranged between $2.7 million and $2.8 million between 2009 and 2012 and cash levels are projected to decline to $2.6 million by the end of 2013, the memo stated. While the city is expecting slightly more income to the funds from construction growth, costs are expected to substantially outpace additional

to reduce employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tax rates in the coming year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already hearing stories from businesses like Thor Construction Company, a Fridley-based firm that expects to save $500 annually per worker thanks to the tax cut. This is great news that Democrats, Republicans, and independents can all celebrate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another positive sign that Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy is headed in the right direction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like a few months ago when we learned our state recovered all the jobs lost during the Great Recession. We certainly have more work to do to create good jobs that allow Minnesotans to provide for themselves and their families, but this is another step towards progress and greater prosperity for the middle class. Rep. WILL MORGAN DFL-Burnsville, District 56B

Supports park trail plan

the trails, mountain bike and ski. I feel very fortunate to be able to benefit from all the park has to offer. It really is a gem. I support the proposed changes because believe we need some more bikefriendly options. Eagan is not a very bike-able community. Although there are bike paths along the major corridors and the power line trail, all of these trails are very hilly and not accessible to everyone who wishes to bike throughout Eagan. I have watched the use of the mountain bike trail grow with recent changes Dakota County Parks has made â&#x20AC;&#x201C; improvement of the parking lot and more family friendly trail options. It has been fun to see so many more users of the mountain bike trail. I believe the proposed trail changes can only benefit users of the park as well as increase access to all areas of the park. I trust Dakota County Parks to make wise decisions. I believe this master plan was with given great thought and that Dakota County Parks will continue to value the true nature of the park.

To the editor: As an avid user of Lebanon Hills Regional Park, I strongly support the proposed changes to the park. I am an avid user of Leba- VALERIE DOSLAND non Hills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I hike and run Eagan income, according to the memo. Some of the main costdrivers identified in the analysis are personnel costs, contracted services increases, rising commodities costs and the anticipated 6.8 percent annual increase in the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services charges. The fee is charged to local governments for sewer service treatment, based on volume of wastewater treated. According to the Metropolitan Council, it collected $178.8 million from 106 communities in municipal wastewater charges in 2013 and will collect $184.1 million in MCES fees in 2014.

celebrate!        

The Met Council website states that most communities cover their own sewer costs by charging a higher â&#x20AC;&#x153;retailâ&#x20AC;? rate to residents and businesses. Other fees related to wastewater and water charged by the Metropolitan Council to municipalities include sewer availability charges, inflow/ infiltration surcharge and a direct connection application fee. Lakeville Finance Director Dennis Feller said the city has not increased its water or sewer rates for years. Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Panthers 8th; Wahlstrom takes 4th in butterfly by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It’s rare that a team accomplishes everything it wants at the state girls swimming meet. But Lakeville North did more than enough at last week’s Class AA finals for coach Dan Schneider to call it an unqualified success. The Panthers finished eighth at the state meet held Nov. 18-20 at the University of Minnesota. Lake Conference teams Wayzata, Minnetonka and Edina swept the top three places. Rosemount, which took seventh, was the only South Suburban Conference team to finish ahead of Lakeville North. “It was a very good meet for us,” Schneider said. “Going back to 1978 when I started, I recall finishing seventh once, but this is our second-best finish ever at the state meet.” About half of Lakeville

North’s 111 team points came in the three relays. The Panthers reached the championship heat in two of them and swam in the consolation final in the other. North’s 200 medley relay team of Elsa Litteken, Aislin Rose, Zoya Wahlstrom and Emily Spencer finished seventh in an AllAmerica consideration time of 1 minute, 47.87 seconds. The 400 freestyle relay of Brenna Smith, Alena Bodnaruk, Litteken and Wahlstrom was eighth in 3:33.36. In the 200 freestyle relay Spencer, Smith, Bodnaruk and Wahlstrom placed 11th in 1:38.94. The Panthers’ highest finish at state was fourth by Wahlstrom in the 100 butterfly, matching her state meet finish from 2012. Schneider said Wahlstrom and the coaches had mixed emotions about the

TAGS South 3rd at state qualifier The TAGS South Level 4 team placed third and the Level 5 team placed fifth in the state qualifier at Legacy Gymnastics on Nov. 17. The Level 4 team scored 107.625. The team placed second on the uneven bars, led by Jaden Rivera of Lakeville who placed second (9.425). Maren Sundberg of Eagan and Kajsa Thrawl of Eagan tied for third place (9.4). Ella Hillis of Lakeville took third on the balance beam (9.0). Kailey Tomzak of Eagan and Athena Zahn of Apple Valley took second (8.75) and third (8.65), respectively. Tomzak placed first (9.2) on the floor exercise. Sundberg and Lauren Foyt of Rosemount both earned 9.05 to round out the top three team scores. Sundberg placed second on vault (8.875). Tomzak was third in her age group with an 8.425 and Rivera was eighth with an 8.4. In the all-around, Sundberg finished in third (35.775) and Thrawl fourth (35.3). Tomzak received a 35.175 for second place in her age group. Other local competitors for TAGS South Level 4 were: Emily Renn and Carys Sundberg of Eagan; Ashtyn Gagner and Mia Richards of Farmington; Madison

Zoellner of Lakeville; and Avery Doman, Alexa Erzar, Jaeleigh Eklund and Taylor McLean of Rosemount. The Level 5 team garnered a score of 107.475 for fifth place. Cecilia Gerlach of Prior Lake earned the team’s highest score on floor exercise and second place with 9.275. Kailey Renn of Eagan earned an 8.975 while Hannah Maccarone of Eagan received an 8.725, earning fourth place in her age group. Gerlach and Isabela Krulich of Eagan went 1-2 on the vault with scores of 9.175 and 9.1, respectively. Ailey Kuehn of Eagan earned a 9.0 for second place in her age group. Kuehn placed second on the uneven bars (9.2), followed by Gerlach (9.1) in third. Renn finished with an 8.9 for sixth place. Gerlach led the team to a third-place finish on the balance beam with her event-winning score of 9.1. Renn finished in a sixth-place tie with an 8.55. Both Krulich and Kuehn scored 8.375 for eighth and third places in their respective age groups. Also competing for TAGS South in Level 5 were Olivia Gore of Lakeville, Keegan Messner of Rosemount, and Madison Nguyen of Farmington.

event, as they had hoped she would have a chance to win. Wahlstrom went in as the No. 1 seed and swam faster than her seed time in the state preliminaries and finals. Her time in the finals was 55.93, good for AllAmerica consideration. Chanhassen’s Zoe Avestruz, who finished second to Wahlstrom at the Section 2AA meet, repeated as state champion in 54.37. Avestruz also won the 100 backstroke. Litteken reached the championship final in that event and placed seventh in 57.75. She swam 57.49 in the state preliminaries, breaking a school record she set earlier this month at the Section 2AA meet. Bodnaruk was sixth in both distance freestyle races, finishing the 200 in 1:52.69 and the 500 in 5:04.19. Wahlstrom (Kansas) and Bodnaruk (Wiscon-

sin-Milwaukee) will continue their swimming careers in college. The Panthers also lose Rose and Erin O’Brien from the group that swam at the state meet. Next year’s team has Litteken, Smith and Spencer to build around. “It’ll be tough to replace what we’ll lose,” Schneider said. “Rosemount will have almost everybody back, so they will be the favorite in our conference next year.” Lakeville North, Rosemount and Prior Lake tied for the South Suburban title this year, although North had to overcome the disadvantage of having no divers. “Hopefully we can plug in some new kids and maybe by next year we’ll have some divers,” Schneider said.

recovering while swimming for the Cougars as a freshman. Making turns on the healing ankle was difficult, she said. Alexander earned 32 of Lakeville South’s 57 team points at state in her two individual events. The Cougars were 13th in the team competition, won by Wayzata. Shea Bougie, Bailee Jackson, Alexander and Jacqueline Johnson were 10th in the 200 medley relay in 1:49.39. All are sophomores except Johnson, who’s a senior. Bougie also picked up team points in two individual events, placing 11th in the 200 individual medley (2:08.48) and 12th in the 100 backstroke (58.04). Lakeville South coach Rick Ringeisen said before the state meet that a finish somewhere between 11th and 20th appeared likely for the Cougars. Said Alexander: “I was happy with where we placed, and I think my teammates and coaches were, too.” With a number of young swimmers in the program, Alexander said the Cougars will be aiming for a higher finish at state next fall. That seems like a long way away for Alexander, who is not taking any time off. The state meet for club teams is in January, and she is hoping for a return to the U.S. Junior Nationals. “I was back in the pool the day after the state meet,” she said.

Brianna Alexander did just about everything except win the 200-yard individual medley at last week’s state girls swimming and diving meet. The Lakeville South sophomore improved her time and placing from the previous year. She beat the defending state champion. She swam an automatic All-America time. But she finished second to Wayzata’s Madison Preiss. Several days later, Alexander could chuckle about that set of circumstances. “That was probably one of the toughest races at the state meet,” Alexander said. “I knew it was going to have some strong girls, but it was a really tough race. My goal was to get first place, but I thought I swam well.” Alexander made up half a second on Preiss on the freestyle leg of the individual medley and finished in 2 minutes, 2.58 seconds. Preiss’ winning time was 2:01.91, about half a second away from the all-time state record. Alexander also medaled in the 500 freestyle, finishing fourth in 5:01.69. At the 2012 state meet, she finished sixth in the individual medley and seventh in the 500 freestyle. She swam about three seconds faster in each event at this year’s state finals.

Former Prep Bowl spectators get chance to play Rosemount goes after South Suburban’s first state football championship by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Rosemount football players don’t have to reach in to the deep, dark recesses of their memories to tell a questioner where they were the last time the Irish had a chance to win a state championship. It’s right there, front and center. They remember it like it was yesterday, and it wasn’t much longer ago than that. “I’d say more than half of us were at the dome,” senior linebacker Nate Sackett said. “I was there. I was a ninth-grader, probably not watching the game as closely as I should have, but I remember being excited to be there.” They don’t remember the outcome quite as fondly. Wayzata defeated Rosemount 31-14 in the 2010 Prep Bowl as Trojans running back Mitch Underhill broke open a close game with three long touchdown runs in the third quarter. This year’s Irish have an opportunity to write an ending they will like better when the play Eden Prairie in the Class 6A championship game at 7 p.m. Friday at the Metrodome in Minneapolis.

Rosemount’s defense, including Dan Monson (12) and Tre Peterson (34) go after Roseville quarterback Jacques Perra during the state Class 6A semifinals. The Irish will play Eden Prairie for the state championship at 7 p.m. Friday. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) Rosemount is on an 11game winning streak after losing its season opener; Eden Prairie (11-0), the defending state champion, has won 16 in a row dating to last season. Rosemount was in a state football championship game one other time – in 1981, when the Irish defeated Moorhead 40-14. That was the last time state championship games were played outdoors. At least some state title games are likely to move outside starting next year when the Metrodome is torn down to make way for a new stadium. Irish senior tight end Gabe Ehlers also was at the 2010 championship game and “I was kind of expecting them to win. I’d gotten to know some of

joined Wayzata, Edina, Minnetonka and Hopkins in a downsized Lake Conference. That’s probably more of an issue for administrators and coaches as opposed to players. Still, Sackett said the Irish were anxious to get Eden Prairie as an opponent in the Prep Bowl. “We definitely wanted to play Eden Prairie,” Sackett said. “It’s not that other teams in the state aren’t good, but Eden Prairie’s expected to be there. They’re the defending champion. We want to be able to say, ‘Yeah, we beat them.’ ” Eden Prairie can use its running game to wear down opponents. Rosemount features as much or more team speed than any previous Irish team. “Over the years we’ve been known for our speed,” said running back Grant Jackson, who watched his older brother play in the 2010 Prep Bowl. “We’re not the biggest team out there, but we’re fast, and that’s helped us this year.” Rosemount has a stable of running backs, enough that the Irish can occasionally move junior Dimitri Williams from tailback to wide receiver. On defense, linebackers Sackett and Craig Syzmanski each has more than 10 sacks.

those guys, and they were expecting to win, too. But they did show us what it was going to take to get there.” There’s always an undercurrent of tension when teams from the South Suburban and Lake conferences meet, particularly when the Lake Conference team is Eden Prairie. In 2009, the Minnesota State High School League proposed to place Wayzata, Edina, Minnetonka and Hopkins in the Lake Conference, which at the time included Eden Prairie and nine of the present South Suburban members. Ten schools, including Rosemount, broke off from the Lake and formed the South Suburban Confer- Email Mike Shaughnessy at ence.

Speeches, songs, conspiracies at JFK commemoration event by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For a moment Friday, Nov. 22, time returned to 50 years ago on Nov. 22, 1963. More than 5,000 people witnessed a solemn 50th anniversary program in Dealey Plaza to celebrate the life, legacy and leadership of President John F. Kennedy, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35th president. Kennedy was gunned down on the streets of Dallas by an alleged assassin perched on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository Building overlooking Dealey Plaza. Many question the theory that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, was the only person behind the shooting. Those embracing the lone gunman theory and those supporting conspiracy theories were out in numbers on the streets of Dallas last week to espouse their theories and to learn more. The focus, however, was for Dallas to have its first Kennedy commemorative event since the assassination. A large riser accommodated hundreds of media representatives from around the world to cover The 50th: Honoring the Memory of President John F. Kennedy. All three

worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of peace on earth, good will toward men.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A new era dawned and another waned a half century ago when hope and hatred collided here in Dallas,â&#x20AC;? Rawlings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We watched the nightmarish reality that in our front yard our president had been taken from us, taken from his family, taken from the world.â&#x20AC;? Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency, his life and his death, Rawlings said â&#x20AC;&#x153;seemed to mythologically usher in the next 50 years to come. What ensued was five decades filled with other tragedies, turmoil and great triumphs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the past is never in the past, that was a lifetime ago. Now, today, we, the people of Dallas, honor the life, legacy and leadership of the man who called us to think not of our own interests, but of our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. ... These five decades have seen us turn civic heartbreak into hard work. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen us go from youthful invincibility to existential vulnerability, toward greater maturity as a city and a community.â&#x20AC;? Rawlings said that today, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because of the hard work of many people, Dallas is a different city. I believe the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;New Frontierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of President Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration did not end that day on our Texas Frontier. And, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hope that President Kennedy would be pleased with our humble efforts toward fulfilling our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest calling: that of providing the opportunity for all citizens to exercise those inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The city of Dallas must continue on that course.â&#x20AC;? McCullough, winner of two Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, quoted from Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speeches and remembered him as a brilliant orator whose words inspired a generation to improve society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His words changed lives, changed history,â&#x20AC;? McCullough said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He talked of all that needed to be done, or so much that mattered: equal opportunity, unity of purpose, education, the life of mind and spirit, art, poetry, service to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country, the courage to move forward into the future, the cause of peace on earth. ... He was ambitious to make it a better world, and so were we.â&#x20AC;? The event was staged in Dealey Plaza with a large JFK banner held high from a crane tower. Rawlings asked for a moment of silence at 12:30 p.m., the time President Kennedy was shot 50 years ago. Bells then tolled throughout the city. Music was performed by the 60-member U.S. Naval Academy Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Glee Club. Bishop Kevin J. Farrell of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas gave the opening invocation, and prayers were also offered by the Rev. Zan W. Holmes Jr., pastor emeritus of the St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community United Methodist Church of Dallas. Many who did not have tickets to attend the event watched it on large LED video screens throughout Dallas. The event also served as a lesson for younger Americans on the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy. The entire eighth-grade class at Kennedy-Curry Middle School in Dallas attended the memorial after taking part in an essay-writing contest about the legacy of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35th president.

Michael Bolton

Singer finds new audience with YouTube hit Michael Bolton concert Dec. 3 at Burnsville Performing Arts Center by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Michael Bolton has won multiple Grammy Awards, packed arenas and sold millions of albums worldwide. But it was two days spent with The Lonely Island comedy troupe in 2011 thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given the superstar singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career a mark of success unique to the digital age: YouTube sensation. First aired on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saturday Night Live,â&#x20AC;? the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? video Bolton recorded with The Lonely

Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer soon went viral on YouTube, and now has more than 116 million views. The clip proved so popular that Bolton, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set to take the stage of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center on Dec. 3, has incorporated an abridged version of the song into his live shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody could have guessed the enormity of it,â&#x20AC;? Bolton said by phone Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lonely Island is so much fun to work with,

Recorded in two days in 2011 and first aired on Saturday Night Live, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has more than 116 million views on The Lonely Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YouTube channel. but it almost feels like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not working. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to do funny things. They were long, 17hour days (of shooting the clip), but everybody was laughing the entire time.â&#x20AC;? The possibility of a followup video to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has been discussed by Bolton and the three Lonely Island comics, but Bolton said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to rush it.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hurry up and throw something together because of the success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that would be a mistake,â&#x20AC;? said Bolton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take us time to devise that, to agree upon it, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a sponsor.â&#x20AC;? And while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;? has helped to expose Bolton to a new audience, guests at his Burnsville concert next month can

expect to hear hits such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a Man Loves a Womanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Can We Be Loversâ&#x20AC;? that helped him earn multiplatinum status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a verse and a chorus (of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jack Sparrowâ&#x20AC;?) on tour, only because the people kept screaming for it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to bring the greatest hits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relationship with the audience that requires some

responsibility.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Boltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Burnsville concert are available through the arts centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. The Burnsville venue is offering 50 percent off the purchase two tickets or more on Black Friday; details are at www.burnsvillepac. com/black-friday.html.
