Senior Center coordinator to retire Walter drawn to seniors from childhood

Bitter cold winds so strong they shook window blinds greeted Linda Walter in January 1996, the unnerving rattling matching her own sudden uncertainty about her path ahead in Lakeville. At 50, Walter had left her job in Farmington, where the trained X-ray technician had stumbled upon what she felt was her life’s true calling, working with seniors, many who had come to consider her family.

So it was tough leaving that environment to work in Lakeville, leading the city’s senior center with about 400 members, many who could not turn out to meet the new senior center coordinator in the frigid weather. Just short of two decades in the position, Walter will retire Jan. 31, a bittersweet decision to care for her ailing husband full-time and one that reflects the kind of devotion she demonstrates to hundreds of Lakeville senior center members.

A 17-year-old female driver was killed Wednesday morning on Dodd Boulevard (County Road 9) south of 190th Street in Lakeville. The victim was identified on Lakeville School District’s Facebook page as Alyssa Ettl, a junior at Lakeville North High School. Lakeville police said the driver and passenger of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries. A preliminary investigation led police to believe Ettl, who was driving her Pontiac Grand Prix southbound, lost control on the slush-covered roadway, slid sideways and was broadsided by a GMC Acadia travelling in the opposite direction. Occupants of both vehicles were wearing seatbelts. The crash was reported at 9:45 a.m. and occurred one quarter mile north of Lakeville North High School. School was scheduled to open two hours late as a part of the regular school year calendar and not as a result of the weather conditions. School staff members were immediately notified and activated a crisis plan to assist students dealing with Ettl’s death. The district described Ettl as “an exceptional student, athlete and friend to many.� The Lakeville area received a coating of snow overnight and it had snowed on and off during the morning hours. A light mist was falling at the time of the crash. Dodd Boulevard remained closed for several hours. Lakeville Fire Department and Allina paramedics assisted at the scene. Lakeville police with assistance from the Minnesota State Patrol reconstruction team are investigating the crash.

Board rejects accelerated expansion for Impact Academy by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Lakeville Area School Board rejected a Nov. 26 proposal to accelerate expansion of Impact Academy, a multiage teaching pilot program at

Orchard Lake Elementary, upsetting a proposal to transform the entire school into the teaching method by 2015-16. Principal Marilynn Smith and learning specialist Julene Oxton, an Impact Academy leader, proposed a plan that

within two school years would eliminate the traditional class model and implement Impact Academy for all students and staff. Impact Academy opened this fall as an option for students in kindergarten through

Following a closed session, the Lakeville City Council unanimously voted Dec. 2 to find Charter Communications in material violation of its franchise with the city, an unprecedented action for Lakeville and latest legal move in a fee dispute headed to federal court. In the findings, the city says Charter was legally obligated to collect and remit to the city a 50 cents per subscriber educational and government fee, but failed to do so for the past 15 years. The city claims Charter owes Lakeville $469,341. Earlier totals calculated by the city included interest, but City Attorney Roger Knutson said the court will determine any interest due. Charter has filed a federal lawsuit seeking a declaratory judgement that nothing is owed the city, claiming the city released the company from collecting the fee in 1999. Company officials were present when the City Council passed the resolution, and hastily left the chambers following the vote. In the findings, Lakeville agrees the topic was discussed at a 1999 work session, and a recommendation was made not to implement the EG access fee, but the city said the council never acted on the recommendation and the franchise agreement was never amended. Charter started collecting the EG fee on the city’s behalf in August, and on Oct. 18 Lakeville received a $10,977 check for the fees for July and August,



according to the findings. Mayor Matt Little said the city would file an answer to Charter’s complaint in federal court this week, after this edition went to press. The answer will go through each of Charter’s complaints and explain whether the city agrees or disagrees. Little said it is “always possible� the issue could be settled out of court. “We could settle this outside yet,� Little said. “Up and until and through trial it could happen, but the parties would have to come to an agreement.� He said the findings of fact make it clear Lakeville’s contract was violated, and they have to move for-

ward with the legal process. “From the city’s perspective, we have to enforce our contracts,� Little said. “Our position is it has not been paid, it is overdue and it is due to the city.� The lack of payment was discovered in 2012 when the city began review of the existing franchise agreement in preparation for renewal. “I think it’s easy to try and point fingers,� Little said. “But I think that discussion is irrelevant because we have a contract, and that’s exactly what contracts are for.� Laura Adelmann is at laura. adelmann@ecm-inc.com.

Lakeville schools to offer Farmington library update to include exterior renovations all-day kindergarten Library will move Parents will have early pick-up option

by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Every Lakeville elementary school will offer no-fee all-day kindergarten this fall, but parents will still have another option for their youngsters. Superintendent Lisa Snyder said the district will allow parents to pick up their children early from school if they believe their child is not ready for the all-day experience. The decision to allow the option was made after concerns were raised by School Board Member Michelle Volk, who advocated for parents to have a choice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole concern is are we forcing parents to move into all-day kindergarten when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

not ready to,â&#x20AC;? Volk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make sure parents have a choice on what they want academically for their child.â&#x20AC;? School Board Member Judy Keliher said the district will be expanding its kindergarten curriculum, and Snyder said parents may have to supplement what is taught when their child out of the class. She said parents interested in an early release for their kindergartner should talk to their studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teacher and principal to make a plan for the parent to supplement materials the child may be missing when not in the classroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would work together to make it very clear what the child is missing academically, then create a plan with

the parent, teacher and principal so the student will be ready for first grade,â&#x20AC;? Snyder said. New legislation allows state funding for all-day kindergarten, and the district expects $916,957 in available revenue to run the program anticipated to serve 562 kindergartners. Lakeville School District expects to spend $667,027 on kindergarten staffing and $50,000 for additional materials, training and equipment. The district anticipates it will save $185,000 by eliminating midday bus routes, leaving the district with a balance of $315,438. Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com.

temporarily to City Hall soon by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Farmington Library will be receiving an update both inside and out starting in 2014. Dakota County plans to update its exterior and interior with two different projects that should be completed by July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like a grocery store,â&#x20AC;? Dakota County Commissioner Mike Slavik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for something to complement the (neighboring) City Hall building.â&#x20AC;? The interior renovation bidding process began about a month later than originally anticipated, but the reopening date shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be changed, according to Dakota County Planner Joe Lexa.

Bids for improving the interior and exterior should be approved by mid-December. Dakota County also plans to update the library in Inver Grove Heights. Originally, Farmington Library operations were going to move to a temporary location in late November to the second story of Farmington City Hall, but now it will likely move in December, and renovations will start in early January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be happily doing business in City Hall for the meantime,â&#x20AC;? Farmington Library manager Barb Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping there will be a limited amount of disruption.â&#x20AC;? When the library makes its move, Svoboda expects it will take no longer than a week to reopen at City Hall. The library cleared its

schedule for December because Svoboda thought staff members would be moving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our regular list of story times,â&#x20AC;? Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make up for it when we reopen.â&#x20AC;? To make room before the move, the library has been selling 10 books for $1. Books for sale, many of them donated, still include several bestsellers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how many books are donated to the library,â&#x20AC;? Svoboda said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather than storing them somewhere, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to give them a new life. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing pretty good at getting rid of the stash.â&#x20AC;? The books that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell by mid-December will be marked for sale at the Robert Trail Library in Rosemount.

Opinion Paved trail will slice through heart of park Newspapers offer by Maryann Passe

Guest Columnist

SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Dakota County Parks manager has claimed more than once that the proposed paved connector trail at Lebanon Hills Regional Park will be near the perimeter of the park. The proof is in the recently published Lebanon Hills Development Plan. Slicing through the heart of the park from east to west is the proposed connector trail. County Commissioners positively emphasize that this trail will not replace any existing hiking, ski, or horse trails. Instead this will be a new trail bulldozed through Lebanon Hills’ forests, fields, and rolling landscape. To meet the Metropolitan Council’s Greenway Trail requirements building the connector trail will be a huge construction project: • Pavement will be 10-12 feet wide. • Total clearing width will be up to 30–50 feet wide • Sightlines will be up to 150 feet long (meaning corners must be cleared wide to accommodate views at fast bicycle speeds) • Hills will be cut off and low areas filled in to a 5 percen grade. The park will lose hundreds of trees and have its hilly landscape leveled. Additional environmental concerns include soil and watershed contamination when installing petroleum-based asphalt and using salt/chemicals to keep the trail clear year-round. Widespread invasive species, such as buckthorn, will be accommodated as many of them

could be just the beginning of leveling Lebanon Hills with paved trails. Alone, the 6.1 mile connector trail’s estimated cost is almost $3.4 million with a loss of about 8 acres of parkland to pavement (the trail’s cleared area is not included in this acre estimate). Annual maintenance estimates are unclear from the draft plan but similar trails have annual maintenance costs of tens of thousands per mile per year. The connector trail will run almost exactly parallel to the existing Highline Bike Trail in Eagan. Merely a half mile apart, we taxpayers will be maintaining both of these trails for years to come. The proposed Development Plan’s changes are irreversible and costly in many ways. There are alternatives that will meet the goals of the county to bring in more people and preserve the unique character of this park. The county needs to restart the master planning process with user group involvement at every level. The Lebanon Hills Regional Park Development Plan is open for comments until Jan. 18. Send your comments to: • Dakota County Parks Department: planning@co.dakota.mn.us • Dakota County Board of Commissioners: board@co.dakota. mn.us • Your elected Commissioner www.co.dakota.mn.us/Government/ Board/Pages/default.aspx.

thrive in disrupted soil. Most of this construction will be within what the current Lebanon Hills Master Plan has designated as the park’s environmental preserve area (a designation that is removed without explanation in the proposed Development Master Plan). There are serious concerns about the county’s intention that this trail be multi-use. As a Greenway Trail it will be connected to the Met Council’s 200-mile Metro Greenway System. Mixing Greenway bicyclists with pedestrians including families and people with disabilities may be disastrous at worst and unpleasant at best. Visit any of the single lane Greenway Trails anywhere in the metro on any weekend and you will rarely see pedestrians mixing with the groups of bicyclists. Contrary to the county’s original declarations, the new plan combines some equestrian and pedestrian trails. There are always safety concerns when mixing horses with pedestrians, especially those walking dogs. The Development Plan states “Lebanon Hills is the planned hub of the county’s Greenway System, with seven Greenways connecting in or near the park.” No limits, specifications, or costs for these other trails are included. Approval of this Development Plan by our county commissioners will give a green light to Maryann Passe is an outdoor and making Lebanon Hills a Met Coun- travel writer from Eagan.

Letters Teach, train employees to rise above minimum wage To the editor: Kevin McCarney posed a question in his letter published last week. Does John Van Hecke, executive director of Minnesota 20/20, care more about Enrique, the minimum wage earner, or the Democrat Party’s success in the 2014 midterm elections? McCarney also explains reasoning from a business owner’s view on why raising the minimum wage is a bad idea. As a small business owner, I thank McCarney for his sentiment. Let’s look at the reasoning from the minimum wage earner’s view. On the surface, this looks great. Who wouldn’t want more money in his pocket? But wait: If I have to raise the wages of some of my employees at my hair salon, I’ll be laying off my receptionist and raising the price of haircuts a few bucks. Not only would my remaining stylists have to work harder, answering the phone, etc., but also imagine if Enrique was my receptionist. He’s now out of a job, and his expense for his family’s haircuts and any other affected businesses just went up. This isn’t to maintain my multi-million dollar wage. Any one of my friends will tell you that although I’ve owned this business for eight-plus

years, I’m a full time accountant outside of my salon, and invest in rental properties just to support my family. After six years of doing the salon accounting, I finally rewarded myself with a whopping $900/ month salary, which has never increased. (I can’t even round up to $1,000.) McCarney is dead on. Enrique is a pawn being used in Van Hecke’s game. Meanwhile, the “Enrique” I hired as a receptionist will someday go on to success as a hairstylist, being coached by my managers, learning the industry and making his mistakes along the way. He is currently earning minimum wage, but ultimately will become self-sufficient, because I made the investment in him. It’s the education. And we business owners are portrayed as the selfish and greedy. I’ll wager that I care more about Enrique than Van Hecke ever would. MARK BELLILE Lakeville

MnDOT should be held accountable To the editor: I am concerned about 35W road construction from Eagan to Elko, as the project completion is delayed to 2014. This delay is completely unacceptable and unwarranted, as it had seven months in prime weather to complete.

As Lakeville residents my wife and I commute to downtown Minneapolis every day. The construction added 15-90 minutes to our daily commute. I have heard extensive frustration from neighbors and co-workers who commute from the south suburbs. Last week I learned repair work on the southbound lanes would be delayed to spring 2014, which will again create single-lane traffic and massive delays. This delay was a result of not managing a timeline and holding contractors to deliverables, a fundamental project management task. There were no abnormal weather patterns to contribute to delays. The weather was very mild. Reportedly repairs were more significant than initially planned. This is another flaw in project management as this should have been identified during the scoping process. As a taxpayer I am ashamed to see continued mismanagement of state projects and funds. There is a continued lack of accountability and concern for the impacts of decisions, evidenced by this continued inconvenience to tens of thousands of individuals every day in spring 2014. It is amazing that a complex and massive 35W bridge can be completely rebuilt in less than a year and about 10 miles of road surface repairs will take a similar amount of time. This is wrong. It’s time to improve the

decision making and expect more from officials responsible for managing funds that are designed to improve our communities. With this work, the state had every chance to approve the construction of a third lane from Burnsville to Elko, which is a definite current need, but the project was not correctly scoped and executed. In just about any corporate environment this mismanagement would lead to the responsible employees being terminated. Please join me in creating a level of accountability with the Minnesota Department of Transportation and state officials and helping to improve the planning process so these types of issues will be prevented going forward.

Get real citizen input for Lebanon Hills To the editor: They are going to do what? This is the question heard at a friend’s house in Apple Valley on Dakota County’s plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park. The biggest part of this plan is to grade in a 5 percent grade trail into the park cutting ski and hiking trails numerous times. This park is called Lebanon Hills for a reason as there are many large steep hills and putting in a 5 percent grade for 6.5 miles means a linear strip mine type development of that length with hills cut down, berms added, and retaining walls galore. There is very little 5 percent topography in Lebanon Hills. The new trail (some call it a road) duplicates existing trails surrounding the park as well as the highline trail. Nothing new is being connected. In a letter last week, Valerie Dosland mentioned that she is confident in Dakota County as the development of mountain biking from the last plan worked. That development starting in 2001 began as this one with a large objection to a number of features but no objection to the mountain bike development. The result of the 2001 objection was to restart the Lebanon Hills planning with real input from citizens and elim-

ination of most of the bad ideas. Today’s plan has a negative response rate nearing 90 percent from the comments received. This rush to gain funding from Legacy Act or other sources should be slowed down to allow open planning and real citizen involvement. MIKE FEDDE Eagan

Don’t require deposit on cans, bottles To the editor: Democrats are pushing a plan to require Minnesotans to pay a 10 cent deposit on almost all beverage containers. While seemingly well intentioned, this proposal will result in reducing recycling rates, wasting the time of consumers and costing them more money. Under their plan, you pay more to purchase milk, pop, and almost all beverages in a container. In order to get money back, people must sort and separate cans and bottles, and store them where they can attract bugs and rodents until they are returned to a “redemption center” to be partly or fully refunded for the up-front cost. Contrast this with a system many Minnesotans already utilize called “single-sort recycling.” Under single-sort recycling, all recyclables (not just glass and aluminum, but also newspapers, junk mail, plastic, cardboard, etc.) into one collection basket. A local recycler picks up the recycling along with trash. Simple. Cost effective. And, yes, good for the environment. Last year the city of Minneapolis went to single-sort recycling and reported a 63 percent increase in the recycling rate. Recyclers currently help pay for this singlesort recycling by selling scrap aluminum. Removing that revenue stream would no longer allow for single-sort recycling to be cost effective. This will result in more newspaper, cardboard, and plastic going into landfills as opposed to these items being recycled. Requiring extra costs and creating a new bureaucracy to oversee a program to facilitate the recycling of bottles and cans would be a great deal

for those who want more government, but not for the citizens who recycle, and not for the environment. Replacing a convenient and effective system like single-sort recycling is likely to reduce recycling as it inconveniences consumers. This is another example of Democrats seeking to grow government at taxpayers’ cost, without considering the unintended consequences. Call public officials and urge them to reject the Democrats’ attempt to increase the price paid for milk, pop, and other beverages. Single-sort recycling makes recycling easy, convenient and cost effective. Democrats need to get the message to not send this environmentally responsible idea to the political landfill. Rep. PAT GAROFALO R-Farmington, District 58B

Health care law will get us to a better place To the editor: The Affordable Care Act is making long overdue improvements to our country’s outdated health insurance model. Such a transformation to a very complex situation is calling upon our citizens’ courage and resilience to get us to a better place (no gain without pain). I believe that the American public is up to the challenge, but are our elected officials? Judging by U.S. Rep. John Kline’s recent opinion column, he is not. Kline offers no improvement alternatives or support, but instead chooses to spend his time (funded by all of us mind you) criticizing improvement actions that were developed by “his” Congress, supported by our constitutional process, our elections, and the Supreme Court. All of our federal elected officials are accountable (Republican and Democrat alike) for the outcome of this piece of historic legislation, and each had a role in its creation and rollout. It’s time all of them accept this reality and do the work we sent them to Washington to do – improve the lives of Americans in a way we could not do for ourselves. BRAD VERGIN Eagan

Sarahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story of living with and breaking free from domestic abuse is all too familiar in Dakota County, Minnesota and the United States. With rates of domestic assault so high that it is the single largest cause of injury to women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the United States, Sarahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s path to repairing the damage wrought by her former husband shares similar threads to other womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories.

They listen to you, it is not like the people I work with. They hear you. They notice when you are hurting.â&#x20AC;? Sarah attends a support group for victims of domestic abuse, which has been important to her, to know she is not alone in her struggles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tell their story and how they changed their lives,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listening to them tells you a lot about yourself and how to change yourself.â&#x20AC;? When asked if it was difficult for her to talk about the abuse in the group, she said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I talk and I cry, I talk and I cry. Before, all I did was cry.â&#x20AC;? Her children have also received counseling services to help them deal with issues related to the abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in a good family,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They raised us with love.

Where to get help

Nearly 40 people across the state have lost their lives to domestic violence this year, more than double the number of similar incidents reported last year. The newspaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series focused on levels of domestic violence, its psychological aspects and what can be done to help those abused.

Vikings break ground on stadium by Howard Lestrud SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Skolt Scott, of Golden Valley, and David Gunderson, of Brooklyn Park, were in full Minnesota Vikings makeup Tuesday morning, Dec. 3, as they witnessed the groundbreaking for the new $975 million multipurpose stadium that will replace the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis. These two Vikings football fans, part of Thee Viking World Order, are no strangers to other loyal fans and to Vikings management. The duo is part of a very active Vikings fan group and played a major role in lobbying for a new stadium by attending countless hearings of the Minnesota Legislature. Gunderson calls himself Sir Gunnar and said he wears a different outfit and inscribes a different message on his face for every game and public appearance. On groundbreaking day, Gunderson said he had no message except to emphasize defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked years to get to this point and now we can participate in a celebration,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Minnesota Vikings, in partnership with Mortenson Construction and project associate Thor Construction, led the groundbreaking ceremony for the new stadium. The event signifies the start of construction on the 65,000-seat, 1.7 million-square-foot facility, scheduled for completion in July 2016. Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf accepted congratulatory wishes from many stadium supporters prior to taking a jaunt into the east side parking lot where two large earth-

moving machines were placed as a backdrop for the groundbreaking. A short program in a large tent on Metrodome property kicked off the activities for the day. The program aimed at thanking many of those responsible for the birth of a new Vikings stadium. Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, called the stadium iconic, which seemed to be the word of the day as it was used by other principals: the Wilfs; Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak; and David Mortenson, president of Mortenson Construction Co. of Minneapolis. Kelm-Helgen saluted the architectural firm of HKS Architects and said the general contractor, Mortenson, is the best stadium builder in the country. She said the stadium will attract thousands of workers from Minnesota, including minorities. The new stadium will be the home for the Minnesota Vikings but also a location for high school and college sporting events, youth football, marching band competitions and Hmong New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations. Inline skaters who frequent the Metrodome will again be invited to use the new stadium facilities, KelmHelgen said. Kelm-Helgen said it is possible that the new stadium will be the host of a Super Bowl, a Final Four or a national championship football game. She said the Vikings are finalists to host the 2018 Super Bowl. The stadium is also expected to be the home of music concerts and other special events. Zygi Wilf spoke to the more than 1,500 during the pre-groundbreaking program, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a great day this is for everyone in Minnesota.â&#x20AC;? He conveyed thanks

Stadium: By the numbers The nearly $1 billion multipurpose stadium, to be the home of the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League, is now under construction. Many loyal football fans and dignitaries gathered Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome to break ground for the new stadium. Lester Bagley, vice president of public affairs and stadium development, said the groundbreaking culminates 12 years of lobbying at the Capitol and 18 months of finalizing financing and construction contracts. Facts about the stadium include:

Lanning for their work in getting the project approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team stepped up and got the job done,â&#x20AC;? Wilf said. Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson said the day was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a dreamâ&#x20AC;? for him. He jokingly tempered his remarks, saying he was not looking forward to playing outside at TCF Stadium for two years until the new stadium is ready in 2016. Mortenson said â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is a pleasure and enormous privilegeâ&#x20AC;? to build one of the biggest structures ever constructed in Minnesota history. He said the new stadium would be a world-class stadium and will be a lasting source of pride. Mortenson said hundreds of stories will be told as the stadium develops. He quoted Winston Churchill: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We shape our buildings and they then shape us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Rybak said the stadium project was â&#x20AC;&#x153;all about

weaving it all together in an urban fabric.â&#x20AC;? Dayton received a standing ovation as he was introduced. He has often been mentioned as the pushing force in the new Vikings stadium becoming a reality. Dayton again called the stadium the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stadiumâ&#x20AC;? and said it will result in economic revitalization for the state. Construction of the new stadium will require nearly 4.3 million work hours and will involve 7,500 trades people from 19 different trades and hundreds of local subcontractors and supplies. In addition, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority and the Vikings have established a Targeted Business Program that sets an 11 percent and 9 percent goal for construction contracts for the project to be awarded to women- and minorityowned business enterprises, respectively. A number of subcontracts have been executed

A St. Paul hotelier is looking to build a 123room hotel next to the outlet mall in Eaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cedar Grove Redevelopment District. Morrissey Hospitality Co., which manages the St. Paul Hotel, hopes to buy half of a city-owned, 1.8 acre parcel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a request that was preliminarily approved by the Economic Development Authority Dec. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, in combination with Paragon and Stonebridge, this will make that district the envy of redevelopers,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Mike Maguire said, referring to the outlet mall and a planned apartment and retail complex. Morrissey recently applied for franchise rights for Hilton Hotels and

Resortsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Home2 Suites extended-stay brand. The $14 million project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; located near the intersection of Highway 13 and Silver Bell Road â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is expected to bring in just under $1 million in annual tax revenue. The four-story upscale, limited-service hotel would include a fitness center, sizeable lobby and pool. Plans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include a restaurant. Rooms, which would all be suites, would have an average cost of $117 per night, said Bill Morrissey, president of Morrissey Hospitality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very confident in the quality of Paragon and feel the hotel will be a very nice complement to the entire venture,â&#x20AC;? said Morrissey, an Eagan resident. The hotel would use

129 spots in a city-owned, 1,543-stall parking garage now under construction and would pay $489,000 for them. Before construction can begin, the EDA will need to approve a final purchase agreement and a planned development and subdivision proposal. If approved, construction is expected to begin in spring 2014. In addition to the planned hotel, city officials received a request to reguide three acres at Old Sibley Highway to allow the development of a 32unit senior housing complex. The City Council tabled the proposal until Dec. 17 to obtain additional information from the applicant. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

ganizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to encourage the county to slow down and to learn from the process,â&#x20AC;? said Laura Hedlund, former chair of the 2001 task force. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lebanon Hills is critical to the community and we encourage them to look critically at its ecological priorities.â&#x20AC;? The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed plan, which has met strong resistance from residents, includes 24.5 miles of unpaved trails, a new paved 6.5-mile connector trail that runs east and west and a 2-mile paved loop around Holland and McDonough lakes. The plan would keep all existing unpaved trails in Lebanon Hills the same, and would add six miles of unpaved trails. In total, the 2,000acre park located in Apple Valley and Eagan would have 46 miles of unpaved trails. Noting that the planned proposal costs twice that of the 2001 plan, the group questions the ecological cost of the plan. The group also criticizes county officials for what

they say is a lack of public input. Dakota County Commissioner Tom Egan disagrees, noting that the county has held several public meetings to gather input and plans to hold two more in the future. One of these meetings is set for Monday, Dec. 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Western Service Center at 14955 Galaxie Ave. in Apple Valley. Instead of creating a new task force, Egan said county officials opted to rely on the county Planning Commission and the series of public meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our approach is different and one reason is the 2001 plan has already been adopted, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a work in progress,â&#x20AC;? he said. Egan said he also believes the process allows more people to participate, â&#x20AC;&#x153;not just those who have invested interests.â&#x20AC;? Another opposition group called Save Lebanon Hills Wilderness plans to host a public meeting on the issue at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 9 at Falcon Ridge Middle School,

located at 12900 Johnny Cake Ridge Road in Apple Valley. In addition to the proposed plans, Hedlund said Forever Wild is concerned about the invasive plant species buckthorn. Hedlund questions whether creating the trail will further spread the destructive plant and whether the county is doing enough to combat it. However, Dakota County planning manager Kurt Chatfield contends county park officials are doing all they can to eradicate buckthorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big challenge that we have addressed in our restoration areas,â&#x20AC;? Chatfield said. Native to Europe, the berry-producing buckthorn bush has sprawled across Minnesota for the past 100 years, according to the Department of Natural Resources. By taking over forests and wetlands, the invasive plant threatens native species. Jessica Harper is at jessica. harper@ecm-inc.com or facebook.com/sunthisweek.

IP, minor parties prepare for the campaign season Third-party candidates face challenges, yet polls reveal votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interest in options

leadership positions for the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2nd Congressional District committee are vacant. Political scientists, too, see challenges for third parties. Larry Jacobs, political science professor at the University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs, said while many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Republicans or Democrats, two-thirds of Americans have psychological attachments to them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research shows that even folks who claim they are independent usually end up supporting the party they â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; towards,â&#x20AC;? Jacobs wrote in an email. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;rules of the gameâ&#x20AC;? favor established parties, he said. The U.S. Supreme Court believes a two-party political system fosters stability, the court tending to favor the major parties, Jacobs said. Hamline University Department of Political Science professor David Schultz sees other pitfalls. For one thing, Schultz views third-party candidates bedeviled by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spoilerâ&#x20AC;? dynamic. That is, people are reluctant to vote for them because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doubtful the candidates can win. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about their â&#x20AC;&#x153;worst fear,â&#x20AC;? that some other candidate they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like will slip in. Schultz views third parties as cyclical, tied to booms and busts in the economy. The unemployment

Independence Party Chairman Mark Jenkins has those moments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, some days I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said of running into walls. If he thought the party were a dead end, Jenkins said he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be working hard to advance it. It might be thought the time is ripe for third parties. A Gallup poll in October showed 60 percent of Americans believed Democrats and Republicans do such a bad job that a third party is needed. A more recent Gallup poll showed Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approval rating at 9 percent, the lowest recorded by Gallup in 39 years. In a YouTube video, Jenkins implores voters not to stay out of politics because politics â&#x20AC;&#x153;sucksâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a condition he attributes to them staying out. He hopes that involvement translates into support for third paries, but he said a â&#x20AC;&#x153;disconnectâ&#x20AC;? exists between voter angst and willingness to support third parties. According to the IP Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, all six

rate in Minnesota in November 1998, when former Reform Party gubernatorial candidate Jesse Ventura shocked the world, was 2.8 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. State revenue coffers were bulging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesse had a confluence of things going at the same time,â&#x20AC;? Schultz said of the big personality and former governor. There are currently three major parties in Minnesota, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, the Republican Party of Minnesota and IP. Majorparty status is conferred, in part, on a party candidate winning votes in each county and at least 5 percent statewide. Recognized minor parties are the Grassroots Party â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a single-issue party focusing on legalization of marijuana â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Libertarian Party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, there will be four major parties (in future years),â&#x20AC;? Libertarian State Party Chairman David Arvidson said. The Libertarian Party â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a Democrat and fiscal conservative, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a libertarian, Arvidson insists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; looks to field 10 candidates for Minnesota House in 2014. As minor-party candidates, these candidates need to gather 500 signatures over a set time period in filing for office, a process not required of major party candidates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Republicans and Democrats) have the

power. They can do what they want,â&#x20AC;? Arvidson said. Arvidson views attempts at moving the state primary forward as a cloaked means of forcing minorparty candidates to gather signatures in the cold of winter instead of the spring. All candidates signing a public subsidy agreement, regardless of party, may issue political contribution refund receipts to contributors. This allows donors to receive up to a $50 refund from the state. The public subsidy payment is partially available to minor-party candidates, according to a Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board official. Third-party candidates can struggle in raising campaign donations, Arvidson said. This is shortsighted on the part of voters, he argues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your children are going to win,â&#x20AC;? Arvidson said of backing Libertarian Party candidates. Like the Libertarians, the IP will be fielding a slate of candidates in 2014. Jenkins anticipates about a dozen, including gubernatorial and U.S. Senate candidates. Former IP officials warned him, Jenkins said, that statewide candidates tend to be pragmatic, not announcing until the snow falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen snowflakes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get out there,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins urged potential IP candi-

dates. One criticism of the IP, Jenkins said, is that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand for anything. The party has been embracing certain issues, he said, and looks to the issue-driven millennial generation for potential IP votes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely need to get people in (elective) office. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question about that,â&#x20AC;? Jenkins said. Political movements come and go, Schultz explained.

He credits the Tea Party with a successful transition from a popular movement to a force within the Republican Party. The Occupy Wall Street movement failed to make such a transition, he said. No one is talking about Occupy Wall Street anymore, he added. The Green Party did not respond to a request for comment. Email T.W. Budig at tim.budig@ecm-inc.com.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville December 6, 2013 11A

Rosemount stage leads to a legacy Actor, 1983 graduate to be honored with schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alumni arts award by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Rosemount High School graduate Peter Breitmayer on the set of the NBC show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Las Vegasâ&#x20AC;? with James Caan. (Image from NBC TV clip) and overacting,â&#x20AC;? he said of his junior high days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did the same thing through four years at Rosemount High, too. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I ever seriously thought I could actually act â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;when I grew up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I mean, regular people from suburbs in Minnesota donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become professional actors, right?â&#x20AC;? Having appeared in 12 theater productions and singing in choir, he said his teachers molded him and created the foundation for everything he built on after high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They taught me how to do the work,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were my first training. They opened my eyes to the beauty and joy of the arts, but also the necessity of learning what was craft. Inspiration is not enough. They taught me how to focus, project, listen and interpret and breathe and make your communications specific and in the moment, with an audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They encouraged me to keep going. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy because I was a much more selfish performer back then when it came to giving to others on stage â&#x20AC;Ś more out of blind fear and insecurity than out of intention.â&#x20AC;? Not long after graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College in 1988, Breitmayer took an improv class at Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop and

was offered $50 a week to become the five-member castâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;sixth.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And of course I said: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No way. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be bored out of my mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;Ś I mean: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thank you, thank you, thank you!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Performing seven shows a week and five improv sets a week, Breitmayer called the three and a half years he spent at Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing training ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aha!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I walked out on that legendary stage that first night, and people were howling. It was pure bliss. â&#x20AC;Ś Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 22 years since I did my last show at Dudleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had mostly a great life as an actor since, but I have never laughed so hard in my life, as I did working at The Brave New Workshop.â&#x20AC;?

Back home Breitmayer was 12 when he moved to Minnesota with his mother and sisters after his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; divorce. The family later moved to Eagan when it was in the Rosemount High School attendance area. He played football and tennis growing up in what he called a safe and supportive environment filled with school and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was taught to be interested and see the wonderfulness of difference,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I was exposed to a pretty good

Working actor Breitmayer said he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine doing anything else for a living. He describes his journey as one of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;working actor,â&#x20AC;? whose primary job has been auditioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are booking one out of 10 projects you are seen for, you are kicking butt in this town,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some years, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve narrowed that spread substantially.â&#x20AC;? Breitmayer said he continues to study and work at his craft, and credited acting teacher Jocelyn Jones with being one of the greatest teachers heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had in any subject. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;book learninâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122; in my life,â&#x20AC;? said Breitmayer, who has a bachelor of arts degree in religion and considered obtaining his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in theology. Aside from developing his ability to deliver lines, Jones taught him how to administrate his career and See ACTOR, 15A

I am very touched by it. And very excited and nervous to see everyone and to say a little something about supporting the arts and being grateful for the opportunity,â&#x20AC;? said Breitmayer, the comedic actor who since 1988 has starred in movies, television shows, stage productions and Progressive Insurance commercials with the iconic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flo.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And clearly the message the Legacy Committee is sending is that they are giving out awards for hawking insurance on television now,â&#x20AC;?

Breitmayer returns to Rosemount this weekend to accept the Legacy Award during intermission of the 7 p.m. OnStage production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letters.â&#x20AC;? At that time, he will speak for a few moments about his time at the school and life since then. Breitmayer credits longtime Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District teachers Steve Boehlke, Judy Sagen and Thomas Hoffman for encouraging his love of the arts. He said the first junior high production he starred in was directed by Sagen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just enjoying singing, getting attention

Breitmayer, his wife, 1988 RHS graduate Michelle Pederson, and their son, Jack, 8, have taken a little bit of Minnesota with them to life in Los Angeles. He said he built a â&#x20AC;&#x153;big Minnesota deckâ&#x20AC;? and has many friends who are transplants from the Gopher State. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an entertainment industry Minnesota Mafia out here, and it is going to take over the place if we have anything to do with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are swarming â&#x20AC;Ś and soon â&#x20AC;Ś very soon â&#x20AC;Ś will be in charge.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville

Sports Successful opener

Sorenson, Cougars put scare into state power Hopkins Ninth-grader scores careerhigh 44 points by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Jack Sorenson had a career-high 44 points, but Lakeville South couldn’t quite keep up with highscoring Hopkins in a 10594 boys basketball loss Tuesday night. Hopkins, a state Class 4A power, is 4-0 and has scored at least 96 points in each game. Thirteen three-point field goals helped keep South (0-2) in the game. Senior forward Cody Kairis added 15 points for Lakeville South. Luke Iverson had 10 points and Brenon Larson-Gulsvig had nine. Sorenson, a freshman guard, is in his second season on the South varsity. Putting up big numbers offensively isn’t foreign to The Eagan mascot looks on as Michael Gorder takes a jump shot during a boys him. His previous career basketball game Tuesday night against Edina.

North boys look to be dangerous again Panthers rout Chaska in hoops opener by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Tuesday night’s boys basketball game between Lakeville North and Chaska was typical of a lot of regular-season games in that neither team was inclined to try to trick the other. Both were content to let their athletes match up against the other team’s and see where they stood. That helps explain why the Hawks chose to defend Lakeville North senior J.P. Macura man-to-man. It’s something Chaska probably won’t try if the teams meet again this season. Macura scored 44 points despite sitting out a significant portion of the second half in the Panthers’ 90-58 victory. “To be honest, I don’t think they realized just how good J.P. is,” North coach John Oxton said. Macura, a guard who averaged 25.4 points a game last season, is bound for Xavier University after he completes his senior year in high school. In the Panthers’ season opener he had 15 field goals (including three three-pointers) and made 11 of 16 free throws. Defending state Class 4A champion Apple Valley and its superstar guard, Tyus Jones, draw a lot of the attention in southmetro basketball. Some might not remember that Lakeville North has been on a good run the past two years. The Panthers were Class 4A runners-up in 2012, losing to Osseo on a basket at the buzzer, and went 23-7 and returned to state last year. The Panthers believe they can be good enough to deflect some attention their way. Oxton said he couldn’t think of anything North didn’t do well in Tuesday’s opener. “This was a very good first game for us. We’re very happy,” the coach said. “We shot well, played good defense and it seemed like we got every defensive rebound.” Barring unforeseen circumstances, Macura will lead the Panthers in scoring and be one of the state’s leading scorers. Last season Macura was one of three Lakeville North players with double-figure scoring averages; he is the

kota County ties have helped the University of Minnesota men’s hockey team stay at No. 1 in the national rankings. Freshmen Hudson Fasching of Burnsville and Justin Kloos of Lakeville are tied for third on the team in scoring with 14 points each. Fashing has six goals and eight assists and a plus-14 rating; Kloos has five goals and nine assists and is a plus-8. Fasching played for Apple Valley in the 2010 state Class AA tournament and was with the U.S. National Development Team program in Ann Arbor, Mich., the last two seasons. Kloos, the 2012 Mr. Hockey Award winner while playing for Lakeville South, spent one season in the U.S. Hockey League before joining the Gophers.

Big mat match On Friday night at Apple Valley High School there will be a state tournament-caliber wrestling match almost three months before the state tournament starts. Apple Valley will play host to Prior Lake in a 7 p.m. match between the top two teams in theguillotine.com Class 3A rankings. It’s also a rematch of the 2013 state semifinals, where Apple Valley prevailed 36-19. The Eagles have five wrestlers ranked first in their weight classes by theguillotine.com: Seth Gross (138 pounds), Dayton Racer (160), Mark Hall (170), Bobby Steveson (182) and Paul Cheney (220). Apple Valley’s Gannon Volk (120) and Maolu Woiwor (132) are ranked No. 2 at their weights. Prior Lake’s Blake Carlisle is ranked first at 152, and the Lakers have the No. 2-ranked wrestlers at 220 and 285. Apple Valley is fifth and Prior Lake 49th in the InterMat.com national high school rankings. The match also will count in the South Suburban Conference standings, meaning the winner will take a major step toward the league championship even though the regular season won’t end for two more months. Apple Valley, which shared the 2013 Class 3A championship with St. Michael-Albertville, opened its season with a victory at the Dick Shiels Invitational in Faribault on Nov. 30. Gross and Hall did not wrestle in the Faribault tournament, but Apple Valley still finished 92 points ahead of fifthranked Owatonna. Kyle Rathman (106), Noah Buck (113), Woiwor (138), Brock Morgan (145), Daivonte Young (152), Racer (160), Jackson Graham (170), Bobby Steveson (182), Gable Steveson (195), Cheney (220) and Lord Josh Hyeamang (285) won their weight classes.

DNR issues ice warning for aerated lakes The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources warns ice anglers, snowmobilers, skiers and other outdoor enthusiasts to use caution when going onto any lake covered or partially covered with ice, especially those that feature aeration systems. Aerated lakes in Dakota County include:

Seniors

Alimagnet, Bald, Blackhawk, Bur Oaks, Carlson, Cliff, East Thomas, Farquar, Fish, Gun Club, Hay, Heine, Holland, Isabelle, LeMay, Manor, Marion, McDonough, Pickerel, Rebecca (Hastings), Rogerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Schwanz, Thomas (Eagan) and Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Open water areas created by aeration systems can shift or change shapes depending on weather conditions,â&#x20AC;? said Marilyn Danks, DNR aquatic biologist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leaks may develop in air lines, creating other areas of weak ice or open water.â&#x20AC;? Aeration systems are generally operated from the time lakes freeze until ice break-up in the spring. They help prevent winterkill of fish, but they also create areas of open water and thin ice, which are significant hazards. Two types of signs are used to post aerated lakes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;thin iceâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;warningâ&#x20AC;? signs. The person who applies for the permit (permittee) is to maintain â&#x20AC;&#x153;warningâ&#x20AC;? signs at all commonly used access points to the lake. This sign warns people approaching the lake that an aeration system is in operation and to use extreme caution. The permittee must also put up â&#x20AC;&#x153;thin iceâ&#x20AC;? signs to mark the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perimeter. Some municipalities may have ordinances that prohibit entering into the thin ice area and/or prohibit the night use of motorized vehicles on lakes with aeration systems in operation. These local regulations are often posted at accesses where they apply. Aeration systems are inspected for safety and compliance with regulations by permittees and DNR personnel.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville

IMPACT, from 1A share and collaborate to deliver instruction. Impact Academy meets in an open space where there are no desks or walls between classes; tables and couches encourage interaction among students. Smith and Oxton proposed adding fourth and fifth grade this fall, keeping some other traditional classrooms in all grades until 2015-16, when the school would be all Impact Academy, either open to all students in its attendance boundaries or become a choice school, open to others in and out of the District 194. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accelerated expansion proposal split the School Board, with three members citing concerns about costs, the lack of long-term data about whether the teaching method works and questions of equity among schools across the district. OLEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multi-age, individualized learning option will still expand to include a fourth grade Orchard Lake class next year, and plans are to open it to fifth grade the following year, but Superintendent Lisa Snyder said the plan is to still provide traditional classroom learning as well. She said the business plan offered a glimpse into the vision Impact Academy supporters have for the program. Also proposed in the plan was eventually expanding its service learning and inquiry-based teaching model to the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle and high schools. Smith presented survey results and academic information that showed high levels of parent satisfaction and increased student achievement since Impact Academy opened this fall with 109

students, and many on waiting lists, but School Board members cited concerns the academic data only reflected about one monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before I can move to a schoolwide choice model, I need more data to show it works,â&#x20AC;? Board Member Michelle Volk said. Board Member Terry Lind, a former teacher and principal, also advocated for more academic data, stating while students may show progress now, they lose much of what they learn in school over the summer. Costs of the proposed accelerated expansion were also a concern for board members. The report estimated it would cost $71,840 to expand to a K-5 model instead of the planned K-4 model next fall, with money used for staff training, furniture, remodeling and iPads for students on a 2:1 ratio. To make Orchard Lake a complete Impact Academy school, the report estimated it would cost another $327,140. Consideration would also be needed for boundary changes, transportation needs, staffing development, technology infrastructure, classroom redesign and learning space needs. Volk noted the pilot program was costneutral and expressed concern about spending money to remodel the Orchard Lake, questioning whether it, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest school, is the right facility to host an expanded program. Oxton said the School Board initially approved the pilot with no data at all but relied on the dedication and innovation of a team of teachers who were initially planning to open a charter school before finding support from district leadership and the board.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve trusted us before,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking you to trust us again.â&#x20AC;? Lind expressed concern about equity at Lakeville schools. He said that four Orchard Lake teachers were awarded grants for iPads and the proposalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for providing Impact Academy students iPads on a 2:1 ratio is not replicated at any other building or program in the district. He also said it is unclear whether the additional technology or the Impact Academy curriculum is responsible for student achievement. Board Member Bob Erickson said he knows why the proposal is before the board now that the levy passed. He urged Snyder to tell voters how the district will spend $1.6 million of the recently passed levy referendum it said would be used to reduce class sizes and boost the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science, engineering, math and technology instruction. In an interview, Snyder said the district â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be true to our wordâ&#x20AC;? and use the $1.6 million to address class sizes. She said she wants to have enrollment data by grade and school before making spending decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to rush into that work,â&#x20AC;? Snyder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are precious resources we have from our public and we have to be very strategic and careful about placing resources.â&#x20AC;? Snyder said the money will buy about 20 teachers, and while some board members have indicated a preference to focus on third through fifth grades, the board has never united on which grades to focus the resources. She said she will recommend the board carefully review enrollment

and class sizes, set priorities then place resources. Snyder estimates they will have school staffing in place by April 2014. She added that she plans to recommend some of the funding be kept in reserve to allow flexibility so the district can provide resources to address high class sizes that are likely to appear at the last minute.

Split school Smith indicated moving to a model with one teaching method would help improve unity at Orchard Lake. The Impact Academy pilot got off to a rocky start when Orchard Lake teachers, parents and school staff learned last spring that the School Board was going to vote on its implementation. The action came as a surprise to many who were not part of the Impact Academy committee and were unaware the topic was being discussed at public School Board work sessions. Board members delayed action on the proposal to allow informational meetings to be held. During those meetings, some longtime Orchard Lake teachers cited concerns they would be moved to other schools, which eventually happened. Since Impact Academy was implemented, the elementary has come under new leadership, as Smith started in her new role as principal this fall.

CHANGE, from 1A ment information from Elko New Market to consider when making changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to get new developments assigned ahead of time so existing students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to move,â&#x20AC;? Kehlier said. She said the group is looking at all age levels, elementary to high

The report stated that the springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events caused â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant disruptionâ&#x20AC;? within the school, and Smith said it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;toughâ&#x20AC;? to pull the two communities together, stating there are â&#x20AC;&#x153;constant comparisons.â&#x20AC;? Sources, who asked not to be identified, have told the newspaper that there is tension on the staff and between parents regarding whether or not they are involved with Impact Academy. Erickson said the Impact Academy teachers are â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazingâ&#x20AC;? but added educators who have not chosen to be part of that teaching method also provide significant contributions in the elementary setting. Board Member Judy Keliher said she supports expanding Impact Academy now. Waiting, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;shuts down innovationâ&#x20AC;? in the district; she called it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fairness issueâ&#x20AC;? because some parents want this option for their students. The report describes issues that could be resolved if the entire school shared a single learning method. It advocates for aligning work and resources of staff and students around a common focus because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;creates a climate of inclusion and access for all students and prevents a competitive climate.â&#x20AC;? Criteria included in the decision to admit a student into Impact

Academy is not strictly academic, as one of the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals is to reflect the diversity existing in the school body. Smith said almost half of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-graders are on the Impact Academy waiting list. School Board Chairwoman Roz Peterson said some parents are frustrated their student was not accepted into the program. Peterson said other parents are concerned the Impact Academy teaching style is not available in other schools or in middle and high school. The report advocates for making Orchard Lake a full-Impact Academy style and does not recommend a school-within-a-school model at other Lakeville schools: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Replicating a limited program school to school has the potential to repeat the pattern of division and disruption in each community,â&#x20AC;? it stated. The School Board will review data regarding Impact Academy this summer to consider whether to keep the program a choice in the school or take Impact Academy on a full-scale level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough data to make those kind of decisions yet,â&#x20AC;? Snyder said.

school, in considering changes. School Board Chairwoman Roz Peterson said the district hopes to have the new attendance boundaries finalized by this spring and actively in place with the start of the 2014-15 school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do that so we can balance class sizes better and run more efficiently,â&#x20AC;? Peterson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to get equity

in class sizes across the district.â&#x20AC;? Superintendent Lisa Snyder said the district plans to have possible attendance boundary scenarios in place to share with the public by Dec. 18.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville December 6, 2013 15A

WALTER, from 1A Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first days on the job were a stark contrast to her position in the Farmington nursing home â&#x20AC;&#x201D; now long since closed â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where Walter was one day plucked from duty as a nursing assistant to fill in for the activities director who was on vacation for a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fluke the way it just happened,â&#x20AC;? Walter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it turned out to be just right up my alley.â&#x20AC;? Gregarious, creative and devoted to seniors, Walter seized the opportunity, drawing on her penchant for party-planning and organizing to lead activities ranging from a fun exercise class to giggly manicure-n-makeup sessions that boosted spirits and drew so much praise, she was promoted to activities assistant. After more than a decade there, a volunteer had urged her to apply for the Lakeville Senior Center coordinator opening. She beat 150 other applicants for the spot, starting out wondering if anyone would brave the weather and come to her events. She was thankful for the spring thaw, but her eagerness for warm weather was followed by dismay when workers tore out the city street in front of the senior center, creating a daunting obstacle

MINING, from 1A mendation for approval by the Planning Commission with conditions that include a ban on night and weekend rock crushing, limitations on activities and night lighting restrictions. City Council Member Doug Anderson, the only elected Lakeville official at the meeting, told residents he has many concerns about the proposal and does not support the increased hours of operation because the land use does not seem compatible with surrounding residential properties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant question around compatible use for the 24/7 permit on this site,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a pro-business guy. I love having great businesses in this community, but I also happen to live on the lake, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard your concerns as residents, and I have concerns myself as a resident.â&#x20AC;? Bury said he understands the neighborsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns, and would work with officials to ensure the site operations are within permitting regulations. City officials said a noise study may be required prior to City Council approval of the request, and Bury later said the noise study would probably delay his efforts to seek expanded hours, but he would still pursue that goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do it right, so whether we do it in December 2013 or we do it in May 2014, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not going to be a big deal, but we want to do it right,â&#x20AC;?

for her gingerly stepping clientele to overcome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the ladies had to be saved by the construction crew,â&#x20AC;? Walter said of a potluck dinner event where one woman became locked out of her car in all the hubbub, her much-anticipated hot dish inside. Walter grew and excelled in the position as many seniors were drawn to her wit, warmth and bubbly personality. Her vision and resourcefulness also proved a good match in Lakeville, where senior center membership has grown to about 1,000. A range of activities abound, and about 200 valued volunteers are ready to help out at any time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the best volunteers,â&#x20AC;? Walter enthused. All are welcomed and have a wide range of classes from which to choose, ranging from acting, pingpong, tap dancing and billiards to a motorcycle club, sewing circle, Spanish classes and a Red Hat chorus. Lakeville City Council Member Colleen LaBeau called Walter â&#x20AC;&#x153;very dedicated,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is always trying to reach out and bring in as many programs as possible to meet all needs,â&#x20AC;? LaBeau said. Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for senior citizens started in

Bury said. Bury said he is seeking expanded hours because many road projects are occurring overnight, and to bid on those contracts he has to be able to provide materials during those hours. He previously said mining would occur during extended hours only as jobs require and promised precautions on site to mitigate noise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The residents, their concerns havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed,â&#x20AC;? Bury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand that, but we have to operate within the rules and regulations of the authorities, and we will do that.â&#x20AC;? Opponents to the expanded hours have started a website, www.lakemariongravelpit.com, and are collecting signatures for an online petition to give to the city protesting Midwest Asphaltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion request. Lakeville City Administrator Steve Mielke said the city has not received a petition. According to the website, 90 signatures opposing the 24-hour operations have been collected. Comments of signers are also being published on the site. One resident called noise from the Lake Marion gravel pit â&#x20AC;&#x153;severeâ&#x20AC;? and dust levels â&#x20AC;&#x153;ridiculous,â&#x20AC;? stating, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very hard to visit with my family as we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always hear each other. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to sit outside and enjoy the weather and each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company.â&#x20AC;? Another resident described the mining pit as â&#x20AC;&#x153;an eyesore.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why the City Council

childhood, where elderly neighbors delighted to regularly invite her to dinner and dress-up activities. After her momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s untimely death, her grandmother drew her close and became a mentor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She taught me to be a very caring person,â&#x20AC;? Walter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grandma was well-loved by everyone in town. She always had a houseful of company.â&#x20AC;? After-church Sundays were spent at her grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little home, where a crowd of about 20 regularly gathered for a hamand-potatoes feast topped off with huge cinnamon rolls, hours of laughter and card games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She taught me how to accept life and roll with the flow,â&#x20AC;? Walter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She always turned everything around to be positive.â&#x20AC;? Those are lessons Walter remembers and passes on to others in her job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lifeline for me since my husband died two years ago,â&#x20AC;? said senior center member and volunteer Karen Blankenship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She keeps me busy. And I need to be busy to get over the loss of my husband. We were married 43 years and he was the love of my life since I was 17.â&#x20AC;? Senior center member Al Wisdom said Walter is always busy keeping the senior center operating

would allow this next to a lake is absolutely disgraceful,â&#x20AC;? it states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city or state attorney needs to look at contributions being paid to these elected officials. There is no way they would allow this next to their home.â&#x20AC;? Residents at the meeting also indicated frustration with the way the city responds to gravel mining permit violations. They said on Aug. 27, a City Council member witnessed a loading violation at Midwest Asphalt; Associate Planner Frank Dempsey confirmed the incident occurred, and said staff issued the company a warning. Residents said there is a lack of consequences regarding complaints, and some said noise complaints appear to be addressed for a short time, but repeatedly occur. They questioned the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity to monitor site activity and take action for repeated violations. Questions about a May email between Bury and Dempsey were also raised because it discussed complaints issued by residents living near Aggregate Industries where 24-hour mining operations are already allowed. The email stated â&#x20AC;&#x153;neighbors in the area have been complaining about the late-night operationsâ&#x20AC;? and the city has been trying to manage the situation. Planning Director Daryl Morey said during the construction season early in the year, a complaint came in from a resident in Apple Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cobble-

well,but is most focused on the seniors she serves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always asking about you,â&#x20AC;? Wisdom said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a day off being sick without her knowing about it.â&#x20AC;? Blankenship said Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door is always open to anyone who needs to come in and talk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a senior center like this one,â&#x20AC;? Blankenship said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She knows everybody, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cordial to everyone. She puts her whole heart and soul into this place.â&#x20AC;? Walter is also known for her good sense of humor and willingness to be silly. At a St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day party, Walter agreed to a memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to spray her hair green in celebration. Later worried the color would stain her white coat as she was scraping her car off in the heavy snowfall, Walter threw a dish towel over her head, a comical scene that attracted a lot of attention and honking horns from passersby. She remembered with fondness the Cornerstone Printing owner who one Halloween walked in freezing cold weather just to bring her a cookie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How did you get here?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Walter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said he walked. I gave him a ride home. That was just the sweetest thing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget that.â&#x20AC;? Lakeville Recreation

stone Lake development regarding noise. He said the matter was raised with Aggregate Industries, adjustments were made, and after some time, the nighttime noise issues problems were resolved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting the issue presented to the operator to look at what they can do to help mitigate that was satisfactorily done,â&#x20AC;? Morey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We helped facilitate that.â&#x20AC;? Dempsey said he probably gets one complaint per year from that area regarding mining activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the complaints have to do with conveyor wheels that squeak, sometimes you hear about the tailgate banging, but the operator there has always been responsive,â&#x20AC;? Dempsey said In the email, Morey suggested Bury consider extended operations instead of 24-hour operations because it may be more acceptable, and Anderson said he was under the impression that Bury may adjust his proposal, but Bury did not mention any alternative plan at the meeting. Mielke said the City Council is scheduled to consider the request at its Dec. 16 meeting. Bury said he is confident issues can be resolved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel we can meet all the rules and regulations that apply to this site and that apply to this permit,â&#x20AC;? Bury said.

Supervisor Patty Dexter described Walter as a professional who has demonstrated commitment, passion and is a hardworking leader who â&#x20AC;&#x153;has always wanted nothing but the very best for the members, the senior center and those around her.â&#x20AC;? Dexter said she will miss Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy, laughter, humor and â&#x20AC;&#x153;what she holds in her heart.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I first and foremost highly respect her as a person,â&#x20AC;? Dexter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She always demonstrates a positive attitude even when a situation presents itself that is challenging. Her value, her integrity and her hard work ethic is unmatched and that is without a doubt 100 percent the truth.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Matt Little said the city is grateful for Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to Lakeville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has grown the senior center over the years into a highly successful program with nearly 1,000 members,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a number of programs going on each day that Mrs. Walter has had a key role in developing. Her energy and smile will be greatly missed, and we wish her the best in retirement.â&#x20AC;? Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com.

Several hundred pounds of food and monetary donations were collected during the ecumenical service â&#x20AC;&#x153;Praying in Thanksgiving â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Praying as One Communityâ&#x20AC;? to benefit Burnsville-based 360 Communities, which operates a food shelf out of the Rosemount Family Resource Center.

People of many faiths under one roof Ecumenical service at St. Joseph Catholic Church draws more than 300 people by Tad Johnson SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

More than 300 people of varying faiths joined together Wednesday, Nov. 27, at St. Joseph Catholic Church for the ecumenical service â&#x20AC;&#x153;Praying in Thanksgiving â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Praying as One Community.â&#x20AC;? Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics, Episcopalians and Baptists sang and prayed together for unity and for all the things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; great and small â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for which they are thankful. Various clergy from five area churches were at the service, including the Rev. Karen Bruins, of Rosemount United Methodist Church, who delivered the sermon. The Rev. Paul Jarvis, of St. Joseph Catholic Church, said

auto

the most moving part of the service was the procession of an empty shopping cart to the altar with the assistance of a young worshipper. The empty cart signified that donations are needed to fill food shelves this winter as many people in Dakota County need help putting food on the table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vast majority of those receiving assistance from countiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; social services and food from food shelves are young kids,â&#x20AC;? Jarvis said. He said the cart symbolized the â&#x20AC;&#x153;new face of poverty, in which the impoverished are not only the young (the vast, vast majority of the poor) and the recently divorced and seniors who cannot live on Social Security alone, but now those who were once among the middle class or

Christmas fun with Ole & Lena

Toll Free Handbell Quartet members are, from left, Debra Olsen, Kate Graber, Christina Wood and Anne Jeddeloh. (Photo submitted)

Hand bells for the holidays Toll Free quartet featured at Dec. 14 Rosemount concert by Andrew Miller Holiday performances of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ole & Lenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Christmasâ&#x20AC;? will be 7 p.m. Wednesday SUN THISWEEK and Thursday, Dec. 18 and 19, on the main stage at Burnsville Performing Arts Center, DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE 12600 Nicollet Ave. Tickets are $20 at the box office, by phone at 800-982-2787 or Rosemountâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Joseph online at Ticketmaster.com. (Photo submitted) Catholic Church is ringing in the holiday season with a hand bell concert next weekend. The 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, concert will see performances by the Twin Cities-based Toll Free Handbell Quartet along with the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand bell choir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The children use what are called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;little ringersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the really big bells the quartet uses,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Bradley, liturgist at St. Joseph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things you have to hear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really quite wonderful.â&#x20AC;? Toll Free, whose mem-

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sweeney Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Burnsville

bers met through the larger Bells of the Lakes hand bell ensemble before forming their own group, will be performing holiday standards at the Rosemount concert such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deck the Hallsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Mean One, Mr. Grinch,â&#x20AC;? as well less traditional fare including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to explore all over the musical spectrum,â&#x20AC;? said Toll Free member Christina Wood, a parishioner at St. Joseph church and Eagan resident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people will think of the bells for Christmas music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which we do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but we also do things that are jazz or swing or blues. We challenge ourselves by playing

music people wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect from hand bells.â&#x20AC;? Following the concert, guests will be invited to check out the hand bells, and to give them a ring if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so inclined. The church, which held its first holiday hand bell concert last year, plans to make the concerts an annual event as part of the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;commitment to building community,â&#x20AC;? Bradley said. The concert is free to attend; â&#x20AC;&#x153;free willâ&#x20AC;? donations will be accepted. The church is located at 13900 Biscayne Ave. Email Andrew Miller at andrew.miller@ecm-inc.com.

Thisweekend Holiday show features â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest first graderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Junie B. Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Dec. 13-30 in Lakeville by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

It could be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bestestâ&#x20AC;? time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had. Junie B. Jones is returning to the stage of the Lakeville Area Arts Center this month, imperfect grammar and all. Junie B. is the star of nearly 30 childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books that have sold more than 55 million copies in North America. The New York Times has described the boisterous 6-year-old as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dispenser of abundant opinions, Runyonesque wisecracks and dubious syntax.â&#x20AC;? This is the second year Lakeville-based childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theater group The Playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Thing has staged the holiday musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smellsâ&#x20AC;? at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arts center. Last year, the show proved such a hit, and the demand for tickets was so great, that the arts center

While the show is geared to kids, Junie B. has a way of winning over adults as well, Railton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B. is described as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest first grader,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the show grabs the kids immediately because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classroom humor, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what age you are because the humor is sort of universal,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B.â&#x20AC;? will be presented Dec. 13-30 at the arts center at 20965 Holyoke Ave. in Lakeville. Tickets are $13 and can be purchased at www. Cast members of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junie B.
