After decades of growth, a significant swath of tall shade trees will soon be cleared from an established Lakeville neighborhood. Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. has informed property owners on the east side of Flagstaff Avenue it will remove all trees from a wide right-of-way in their front yards where four petroleum pipelines are buried. The company will not compensate property owners for the tree loss. Bruce Heine, Magellan director of government and media affairs, said they plan to begin tree removal work within 10 days. Some of the trees slated for removal on Flagstaff Avenue are on the boulevard, others are located close to homes on the front half of residents’ yards. Heine said the trees need to be removed to better monitor and inspect the area to ensure pipeline safety. Federal regulations require operators to monitor pipelines at least 26 times per year; Heine said they last inspected that segment along Flagstaff Avenue on June 7. By removing the trees along the nine-block stretch of road, the company may better survey the area by air. Brown patches on lawns can reveal potential problems with the pipeline. Lakeville residents who have lived there for

“It’s going to just wipe out the neighborhood,” said Gene Smith, who has lived in the same house since 1978 and will

lose multiple tall trees from his front yard. He enjoys them for shade and a sound barrier from traffic. Lakeville Mayor Matt Little said there are an estimated 104 trees that have been identified for removal. Heine said the company has not completed assessing the trees that will need to be removed and do not have a total number at this time. He added the company will begin working on other segments of the Magellan Pipeline system in the region once it completes clearing activities in the Lakeville area. Smith called clearing of the trees “a big loss” and said he feels terrible See TREES, 14A

South junior wins design contest

Red Line to offer free rides Apple Valley, Eagan events will usher in bus rapid transit

Pan-O-Prog buttons are on sale now A Lakeville South High School junior has submitted the winning design for the 2013 Lakeville Pan-OProg button. Olivia VanDenBerge’s bright design featuring fireworks and stars was selected by the Lakeville Pan-O-Prog Committee out of 65 entries submitted for consideration. Olivia, 17, won $200 and received a copy of the button created by her design. She said she thought of the idea in Kelly Hansen’s graphic design class at South and spent two weeks working on it. “My first design was pretty basic, but I chose different colors and added more detail to make it more unique,� Olivia said. “I made it up as I went.� Olivia, daughter of John and Christine, called winning “a pretty big deal� because she plans to pursue graphic design in college after she graduates next year. “My graphic design

Drug evidence can be used in court insufficient contamination evidence found in case that closed crime lab by Laura Adelmann SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Dakota County Judge Kathryn Messerich has ruled drug evidence previously tested by the embattled St. Paul Crime Lab can be used in court. Public defender Lauri Traub had argued during the 11-month hearing that the evidence in multiple drug cases included in the hearing was unreliable, possibly contaminated because of the significant issues discovered with the lab’s processes, training and equipment maintenance. St. Paul Police Department crime lab employee testimony revealed numerous problems with lab operations, including under-trained workers, evi-

dence security problems, improper testing methods, and testing equipment that was not adequately cleaned, maintained or tested. The lab also lacked a written protocol or didn’t hold to consistent standards. At the hearing’s start, the lab’s director resigned; and all testing was halted. An initial plan to address issues and bring the lab up to certification standards was abandoned; the lab has since been shut down, and all drug testing is being handled by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Messerich found in the three cases included in the hearing that there was insufficient evidence of widespread contamination to warrant evidence be

suppressed. She ruled the testimony proved the possibility of contamination rather than the actual presence of contamination. “The state has met its burden at this stage of the proceedings and any issues regarding contamination go to the weight of the evidence rather than to the admissibility,� Messerich wrote. Traub said she was disappointed by the ruling but said the most important result of the hearing was that the lab’s poor testing practices were revealed and the lab has been shut down. “Public defenders exposed the St. Paul crime lab’s lack of training and shoddy work practices,� Traub said.

Lakeville home sustains damage after garage fire

The court ruling allows the three remaining defendants involved in the hearing to raise the contamination issue as their cases proceed through court. Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said he is pleased with Messerich’s decision. “It is our intent to proceed with these and any remaining cases where the results of retesting performed by the BCA lab have confirmed the results of previous testing performed by the crime lab,� he said in a statement.

like trains without the tracks, will begin serving its five station stops along the 11-mile route on Cedar Avenue in an effort to give current bus riders another option and encourage more commuters to start riding buses instead of crossing the Minnesota River with the other 90,000 motorists daily who make the north or south trip in a car. Planners are hoping the Red Line’s noschedule-needed convenience and its 30-minute trip time are attractive enough to help reduce traffic congestion on the heavily traveled Cedar Avenue. The Red Line will provide station-to-station service from the Apple Valley Transit Station to the Mall of America, with additional stops at 147th Street and 140th Street in Apple Valley, and the Cedar Grove station in Eagan. The Red Line is the second in the region’s Metro system, connecting with the Metro Blue Line (Hiawatha Light Rail Transit) at the Mall of America. The Red Line will travel on new bus-only shoulder lanes along Cedar Avenue and Highway 77. Buses will operate every 15 minutes during peak travel periods, from approximately 5 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Friday, and 7:30 a.m. to midnight, Saturday and Sunday. Buses will serve each station with level boarding and real-time signs. For more information, visit www.metrotransit. org/metro-red-line. —Tad Johnson

It is almost surprising to find one premise that is universally agreed upon by administrators, politicians of all persuasions and teachers. It is this: Children need to be reading at or above grade level by the end of the third grade, or face a distinct chance of spending their remaining educational years (and perhaps the rest of their lives) at a disadvantage. In Minnesota, 63 percent of all fourth-graders are not proficient in reading. Of black children, 88 percent are not proficient. Third grade is crucial to the learning process because at this point students should no longer be learning to read, but reading to learn. Students who cannot read cannot grasp the concepts outlined in a math textbook, or understand their social studies assignment. This reading gap is a key component of our state’s achievement gap. According to the “Double Jeopardy” report by Dr. Donald Hernandez, one in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade fail to graduate from high school on time, four times the rate for children with proficient third-grade reading skills. If we ensure that all children make the transition from third to fourth grade with proper reading skills, we ensure a solid foundation for the years ahead. It’s that simple. But it’s not easy.

ECM Editorial Many young children today enter kindergarten without the foundation for learning. They have limited vocabulary and life experiences. Some do not know how to hold a pencil or crayon. They are already behind. Compound the situation with students who do not understand English, or who come to school each day hungry, and the simple task of teaching can become overwhelming. In previous ECM Editorial Board editorials, we urged our state’s lawmakers to approve additional funding for preschool programs and to fully fund all-day kindergarten. We are pleased the Legislature came through on both counts. How can we be assured the extra funds for early childhood learning are not wasted? How can we foster classrooms filled with fourth-graders ready to tackle science, math and social studies because they have the necessary reading skills? Experts, from Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius to school district administrators to teachers in the classroom, agree with these concepts:

Schools need flexibility to use state funds to meet their needs. One suburban school might need a reading teacher fluent in Spanish, Hmong or Somalian. Another school might need a “floating” specialist to offset large class sizes. A school district with a large population of poverty might take a very different approach than a rural district. Equally essential is teacher empowerment. Our teachers need to be given the proper tools and training to achieve the goal of student reading proficiency by third grade. Well-prepared teachers will offer specialized literacy training, adapting to each student’s needs. Schools, principals and teachers need to be held accountable to meet reading goals. Failing schools need redirection or need to be shut down (if shutting them down is not an option, they likely need new leadership). Schools need to systematically reach out to parents and invite them into the building, respecting their diversity while helping them understand family expectations. Extra help needs to be obtainable for children with obvious needs. The oft-cited Finnish educational program quickly helps any child with extra needs in the early grades. Our system is much the opposite – we let children slip methodically

behind, then we take extensive special education dollars to try to bring them back to standards in middle school or high school. Parents must be accountable. After all, parents are still a child’s most powerful teacher. Parents need to be fully engaged partners in their child’s educational experience, working with their child’s teachers and demanding the best from their school district. Many nonprofit organizations are involved. The McKnight Foundation has given a large grant to the Brooklyn Center School District to focus on reading skills. It reports, “A majority of Brooklyn Center students demonstrated a full year’s worth of accelerated literacy progress by just February, through use of the initiatives’ tools and shared resources.” Every literate adult can help. The Minnesota Reading Corps is one volunteer program whose main purpose is to provide reading tutors to children in need. Become a tutor and urge your school to utilize local volunteers. We evoke the somewhat overused and controversial phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” It takes a team to teach our children to read: Good schools, trained teachers, involved parents. The solution is simple but not easy. It requires a village of Minnesotans to produce happy, capable fourth-graders eager to learn. This editorial is a product of the ECM Editorial Board.

How much should schools spend to attract and retain students? by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

A provocative email from a recently elected central Minnesota school board member included the following: “The world is much different (than) when my parents made their decisions (about schools). I am struggling with how much tax money should be spent to retain and attract students.” Below is my response. Hope to hear what you think. Recognizing that there are many ways to spend taxpayer dollars, here are ways I would and would not spend money to attract and retain students. Improving a school’s or district’s program. There’s no single thing that all families are seeking from school – except safety. If a school has a reputation as a place where bullying or other forms of violence are not dealt with, the school often will lose students. So safety has to be a top priority. Many schools survey their students about this and other issues. Surveying students and families about what they see as strengths and shortcomings seems like a top priority.

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Also related to programs, the Minnesota Department of Education’s recent Rigorous Course Taking study shows growing interest in dual high school and college credit courses. Find the study online at MDE found, for example, that in the past three years, the number of students taking College in the Schools or Dual Enrollment courses increased from less than 19,000 to almost 22,000. The total number of students taking Advanced Placement exams increased over the past five years from about 26,000 to more than 35,000. So a school board should study its dual credit program. If not much, building new partnerships, with higher educa-

tion or other providers could be wise. Spending more money on buildings was part of the school board member’s query. He wondered if additional money should be spent on improving older buildings or putting up newer ones. A great place to start answering this question is by going to the National Clearinghouse for Educational Facilities website ( NCEF has literally thousands of documents about topics such as which building features can save energy and money for taxpayers or how buildings can contribute to (or detract from) student learning. It should be mentioned that I was an unpaid board member of NCEF, which formerly received federal funds. The school board member who contacted me said that funds for buildings “could be used for staff, technology and supplies.” Although this is a very complex subject, in general, money for buildings from the state or from local property taxes can’t be used to pay for teachers or school supplies. Advertising. Wise schools and districts communicate with families and the

broader community. With the growth of the Internet, Facebook, Twitter and other “social media,” opportunities to share information are increasing exponentially. But many families see through hype. They want accurate information about programs and accomplishments. Rhetoric, which I sometimes see on school and district websites, is less persuasive than more specific information. Most families are not just interested in test scores, attendance and graduation rates (although those matter and should be shared). Families also are looking for information about special opportunities the school offers. But word spreads if schools promise and don’t deliver. Budgets are, in part, a reflection of a school’s priorities. Wise schools and districts use their human and financial resources to strengthen and share their programs, progress and plans.

Planting for clean water with an environmentally friendly rain garden by Meghan Jackson SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Want a new method of gardening that doesn’t require additional watering or fertilizers, incorporates native plants and looks beautiful? What is it? It’s a rain garden. Some gardens are planted for a specific purpose, like growing food to eat, or flower to pick. A rain garden’s purpose is to catch rain and prevent runoff from a roof, driveway, or other hard areas around a home. Many residents may already be aware of rain gardens and the many benefits they can provide for their properties and water resources. Consisting of a shallow depression planted with attractive flowers, grasses, and shrubs, rain gardens have been gaining popularity for years and examples abound in our area. The Environmental Protection Agen-

Guest Columnist cy estimates that pollutants in stormwater runoff (or non-point source pollution) are responsible for about 70 percent of all water pollution in lakes, rivers and creeks. Since most property is privately owned, we all need to do our part to reduce this type of pollution, and what you plant in your yard to help water soak makes a difference. When it rains, water runs over the land, and water that does not soak into the ground runs off and picks up pollutants along the way. Rain gardens help to intercept, slow down, and clean some of this stormwater runoff before it can get to our lakes and streams. A rain garden is designed so that any stormwater soaks away within 48 hours after the rain stops, so mosquitoes will not have a chance to reproduce. They

are planted just like a regular garden or flowerbed, and if planned and maintained, they can be an amenity for any property. The major difference between a raingarden and a regular flower garden is that the bed of a rain garden is planted as a depression, rather than in a mound or at ground level. Additionally, rain gardens include mostly native plants that easily adapt to the soil and water conditions in your area. Including native plants in your rain garden can have many benefits. Not only are native plants best adapted to our local climate, but they are much heartier than non-natives because  their roots are generally long and  can find their own water. By incorporating native plants into rain gardens, the two will help clean water naturally, since native’s deep rooted systems anchor soil and act as filters, while rain gardens collect dirty

water from streets and rooftops. Native plants are also more valuable than non-natives because of their unique relationship with other local organisms. Nectar, pollen, and seeds for bees, butterflies, birds and other wildlife are just a few ways natives are kind to critters. In addition to providing local food sources, native plants also provide critical habitat for our beautiful and diverse native butterflies, insects, and birds. You can make a difference starting with your yard.

Letters DFL deserves applause To the editor: A recent opinion piece from the state Chamber of Commerce asserted tax increases enacted by Democrats at the Legislature this past year will hurt our citizens and businesses. It neglected to mention that, aside from tobacco taxes, those taxes mostly impacted higherincome earners and businesses. According to the State Department of Revenue, upper-income businesses and individuals have paid a smaller share of their rapidly rising incomes in taxes than the rest of us. And, contrary to assertions of a recent editorial piece, DFLers from Gov. Mark Dayton

on down had said they would raise taxes on these folks if they were elected, since it made great sense and had popular support. Meantime, our recent education budgets lagged well behind other states, and higher class sizes showed it: over 40 students per room, canceled electives, no activity buses and frequent levy referendums, as schools tried to make up the difference. Democrats shored up this and other neglected assets like roads and bridges, public safety and public health. Other problems remain regarding food security for thousands of families still without enough income. At some point the crumbling infrastructure, both man-made and in-

tellectual, needed to be addressed before collapsing from a conscious lack of care and attention. The opinion piece also ignored the state’s low unemployment rate, compared to its neighbors. How many businesses really base their location decisions on tax rankings? The many profitable, solvent businesses in Minnesota might not otherwise be choosing this state and its wellprepared employees with their can-do ethic and training. Democrats in the Legislature deserve the appreciation and applause of all of us for working to level the playing field. RON COMMINS Eagan

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville Month ##, 2013 5A

Kline introduces GOP No Child Left Behind fix Let the No Child Left Behind games begin. Days after Senate Democrats dropped their NCLB overhaul plan, Minnesota Rep. John Kline, R-Burnsville, introduced the House GOP’s response, one bill encompassing most of the party’s reform platform from last session. Then, Kline’s Education and Workforce Committee passed three separate bills meant to overhaul the decade-old, long-expired and much-maligned No Child law. The bills would: • Eliminate scores of federal education programs deemed duplicative or ineffective by committee Republicans; • Allow local school districts to use federal education money for purposes other than their intended use; • And make it easier for states to develop and expand charter schools, which was the only component of the plan to receive bipartisan support. Kline said this year’s proposals are largely the same, only they’re rolled into one bill and expanded a bit this time around, by increasing science-education assessment standards, allowing school

districts to spend more federal money on safety programs and conforming the measures to new post-sequestration federal funding levels, among other things. The committee will take up the bill June 19, and it could see floor action before August, Kline said Thursday. No Child Left Behind is years overdue for congressional renewal, but Democrats and Republicans don’t agree on how to do it. Absent an overhaul agreement, the Obama administration began issuing NCLB waivers to states last year (Minnesota received one). Senate Democrats introduced their NCLB reform plan on Tuesday, and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee will consider it next week.

Student loan interest rates More immediately, lawmakers are staring down a deadline for fixing student loan interest rates before those on federal subsidized loans double on July 1. The Senate voted on two competing interest rates plans Thursday, but both — one from Republicans tying the rate to federal borrowing costs, and one from Democrats to keep the rate un-

changed, at 3.4 percent, for two years — fell well short of the 60vote threshold needed to pass. The House passed a Kline-introduced bill tying the rates to the market in May, but Democrats said the bill would allow rates to rise too quickly and not provide enough stability for borrowers. The White House issued a veto threat, and even though President Obama has proposed a similar market-based plan (though one with lower rates), his administration endorsed the Democrats’ bill on Thursday. Kline needled both the White House and Senate Democrats for the bill’s failure. “I find it absolutely bizarre, where the White House came out and said they supported kicking the can down the road for two years,” he said. “The House has passed legislation to fix the student loan impasse. We still need the Senate to show us they can do something.” The Democratic sponsors of the Senate plan said they’ll look to compromise with Republicans on the matter before the end of the month, but they insisted on a two-year rate freeze so as to take up long-term reform in 2015, when federal higher-education policy is up for renewal. If that plan goes forward, the

sticking point would be cost — when Congress extended the current interest rates last year, it cost $6 billion. Democrats want to pay for the fix by raising taxes and closing loopholes, something Republicans have long opposed. “We’ll start negotiating with Republicans to see if they’re willing to find some offset that we can agree on,” Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin said at a press conference. “Otherwise, we’ll work on some kind of compromise … something that will keep it at 3.4 percent.” Democrats have said they’re interested in a long-term fix for student loan interest rates, but that there isn’t enough time to do it this month, especially with a handful of other tough proposals — immigration reform, the farm bill, etc. — already on the table. “This is a big discussion, but right now we have something we have to do,” said Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, a co-sponsor of the Democratic bill. “Right now, we’ve got to make sure these interest rates don’t double on the Stafford subsidized loans. That’s what we’re doing, that’s what this is about.”

Moving the legislative needle Gov. Mark Dayton has scored many victories in his first term as governor by T.W. Budig SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton is having a sizzling first-term. The former U.S. senator, who slaps the table top in describing his frustrations with the Senate, has overseen a burst of legislative activity not witnessed in years. “Governor Dayton has ushered in the most productive period in Minnesota lawmaking in three, and possibly four decades,” University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute Political Science Professor Larry Jacobs said in an email. With Republicans in control of the Legislature, Dayton, ably assisted by two veteran Republican lawmakers, brought Vikings’ stadium legislation to his desk after a decade of inconclusive debate. Although dismal electronic pull-tab revenues keep stadium funding dead center, the Pawlenty Administration’s stadium accomplishment consisted of a public hearing featuring homemade cardboard and plastic models. “The stadium developed its own kind of momentum that was really pretty extraordinary,” Dayton said of the process culminating in Vikings’ owner Zigi Wilf peering over Dayton’s shoulder at a billsigning ceremony. Of greater historic significance is the same-sex marriage legislation Dayton signed into law in May. The marriage issue has roiled at the State Capitol for a decade or more, sporadically attracting crowds in numbers rivaling any other issue. Dayton signed into law landmark legislation creating a health care insurance exchange. Although originally thwarted by a district court ruling against an executive order, Dayton signed a bill that could result in unionization of child care and long-term care providers. Jacobs, for one, finds this highly symbolic, as other states, such as Wisconsin, are attempting to roll back or limit unions, he said. Dayton portrays himself as no pushover with regard to unions. He insisted on a higher vote threshold in the unionization legislation than the Service Employees International Union wanted, Dayton said. He also said “no” to a request by Education Minnesota, the teachers’ union, to postpone teacher evaluations. Dayton ran for a governor on a taxthe-rich message — he often holds two fingers aloft to indicate the top 2 percent — and promised more school funding every year as governor. Now assisted by a Democratic-led

Budig) House and Senate, Dayton signed into law the creation of a fourth-tier income tax bracket and slated $485 million in additional funding to schools. A two-year, higher education tuition freeze was passed. “I think the benefits for people are going to be enormous,” Dayton said. “And I share that credit with the DFL Legislature.”

Perception Tom Horner, former Independence Party gubernatorial candidate who ran against Dayton in 2010, believes Dayton is making good on campaign promises. “He has achieved most of what he said he would do,” Horner said. Dayton, while quick to point out perceived successes, injected a customary note of self-depreciation during a recent interview. Asked if the administration was on a roll, Dayton quipped the roll, if there, resulted from colliding with the Legislature. “There’s a lot more to be done,” Dayton said. Republicans portray Dayton as misdirecting a state budget they set on true course, of punishing success, of stifling business, of overreaching. Horner, who proposed a sales-tax expansion as a gubernatorial candidate, said Dayton folded on his sales-tax proposal. “I think that was a huge, missed opportunity,” Horner said. Horner said it is good that Democrats are throwing millions of dollars into education, but he said it’s spending that fuels

the status quo. Jacobs, too, views Dayton as largely abandoning tax reform and simply grabbing the cash. “For sure, the Border Wars are on,” Jacobs said of the economic fallout. Still, Jacobs credits Dayton with shrewdness in “slicing off ” or sidestepping unpopular issues. For instance, Dayton supported gay marriage but skipped gun control — the latter a “hornets nest” threatening his coalition, Jacobs said. He taxed cigarettes, but didn’t tax liquor. Dayton adamantly rejects the idea his administration is reform light. “We are transforming state government from the inside,” Dayton said. “The previous administration cared nothing about state government.” Even with all the changes, the state and national economies are still “sputtering,” Dayton said. “So most people aren’t going to perceive because Mark Dayton is governor, life is better in Minnesota,” he said.

The future

(perceived progress in state government) would be lost if I only had one term. “My philosophy is do what’s best for Minnesota and take the consequences.” Hamline University Public Affairs Professor David Schultz views Dayton in a “terrific political position” as he moves toward the 2014 election. The state government shutdown is in the past, and Dayton benefitted from the Republican implosion last election, Schultz said in an email. Republicans currently don’t seem to have a strong message or a strong field of candidates, he said. “While Dayton could have been more aggressive in terms of making some structural reforms to taxes and government structure, he is succeeding in terms of putting more money into some very popular programs,” Schultz said of education. “Politically he is playing it very well,” he said. Jacobs views Republicans as having two powerful opportunities to challenge Dayton. Gay marriage has “lit a fire” under social conservatives, he said. Dayton could be vulnerable to the charge that he wasted the huge education funding increase by dropping state education assessment standards. The question is, which electorate shows up, Jacobs said. “If it’s the 2012 DFL-heavy electorate, then Dayton wins this debate. If 2010 conservative-tilted electorate shows up, Dayton may lose,” Jacobs said. Horner views Dayton going into 2014 fairly secure. “I think the governor is in pretty good shape for re-election,” Horner said. The Republican Party endorsement process, Horner said, is “fairly crippling” to Republican candidates because of an overly heavy emphasis on social issues. Republicans’ best chance for defeating Dayton, Horner argued, is for the state business community to back a moderate Arne Carlson-style candidate in the primary. State Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, is viewed as a possible gubernatorial candidate. Dayton, 66, recently became a firsttime grandfather, grandson Hugo Benjamin Dayton being born on March 27 to son Eric and daughter-in-law Cory. Asked whether becoming a grandfather changed his view of life, Dayton spoke of the brevity of public service, the brevity of life. “If I believe something, I better act on it now than wait,” he said.

Dayton foresees upcoming years as of continual challenge. “It’s going to be a tough decade,” he said. “And that means politicians don’t get very popular, or stay very popular.” Although Dayton is known for serving single terms, for months the governor has said that he intends to seek re-election. “I have every intention of running for two terms,” Dayton said. “Much of that T.W.

Holland Lake ‘Loop Trail‘ Concept t













A new proposed master plan for Lebanon Hills Regional Park includes a new paved 6.5-mile connector trail that runs east and west (shown in purple) and a 2-mile paved loop around Holland and McDonough lakes (shown in green). The plan also calls for 24.5 miles of unpaved trails. (Graphic submitted)

County looks to add paved trail in Lebanon Hills park “We do not need, nor want paved trails through every park in Dakota County – Lebanon Hills in particular,” Jenkins said in an email. “Natural, undeveloped places are becoming harder to find despite studies which continue to show the many benefits of natural, open space.” Fellow Eagan resident Diane Pavlak said she feels adding paved trails would “ruin the park.” “People come from all over to walk and ride bikes through this beautiful park,” said Pavlak, who has lived across Cliff Road from the park since 1959. “If people prefer paved walkways, there are other parks to visit.” County officials say they have heard from paved-trail opponents but say they are trying to strike a balance between nature and recreation opportunities for all park users. “We need to accommodate everyone in the county, including those who are currently prevented from going because the park is not accessible to them,” Dakota County Commissioner Tom Egan said. Egan said the new paved trails will provide better access for people with disabilities and a connection to park amenities. Jenkins agreed that the park should be accessible to everyone but said she doesn’t believe paved trails

are the solution. She said she hopes county officials consider segments of unpaved ADA-compliant trails in Lebanon Hills. Egan said that the paved trails will also provide better access to fishing and canoeing areas and a connection to the county’s 200 miles of paved greenway trails. Though Lebanon Hills is a regional park and not a park preserve, county officials plan to leave as much open space as possible to hikers who may not want to view the paved trails, Sullivan said. “Unfortunately, the park can’t be everything to everyone,” he said. “There are choices that have to be made, but we’re trying to do it in a transparent way.” County officials welcome public input on early concepts, Sullivan said. The county has held several public meetings throughout the year and continues to solicit comments on its website. Future public meetings are in the works, he said. The park currently has a campground, a beach and 19 miles of unpaved trails that are used by bicyclists, horseback riders and walkers. Less than a mile of paved walkways are near the visitor center. A draft of the plan is expected to be released for public review in July and voted on by the County Board in August or September.

Dakota County officials are considering adding paved trails in Lebanon Hills Regional Park, but the plan has met resistance from residents. A hilly, 1,842 acres in Eagan and Apple Valley, Lebanon Hills is the county’s largest and most used park, said Dakota County Parks Director Steve Sullivan. Attendance has doubled since 2001 from 274,000 visitors per year to 543,000, prompting officials to reexamine the park’s master plan. Park officials are proposing a new master park plan that 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 paved trails would provide four-season recreation for bicyclists, walkers and skaters, Sullivan said. All existing unpaved trails in Lebanon Hills will remain unpaved, according to the new master plan. The plans have sparked concern from residents who would like to keep the park pristine. Eagan resident Holly Jenkins organized about eight people, whom she describes as passionate park users, to challenge the master plan.

The club said no copies were available in digital or printed form for a board meeting held Jan 17. On Jan. 18, 2012, the club terminated his coaching contract. Merrick sued the LSC in April 2012. The suit, Mark said, contended that Harrison and Rost sought to terminate Merrick’s contract because of personal animosity toward Merrick, stemming from their disagreement over allowing certain LSC teams to play up. Mark said he was able to document at least two nonpublic LSC board meetings held at Harrison’s home in which Merrick’s status was discussed. At one of those meetings, the attorney said, the club allocated $2,000 to hire outside counsel to investigate ways to remove Merrick without incurring liability. Harrison said those meetings were nonpublic because they were called to discuss a personnel matter – specifically, Merrick’s status. Merrick said his attorneys had lined up a number of soccer coaches and administrators to testify in his behalf, but “by settling, we don’t have to put a lot of great people on the spot to testify.” He continues to train LSC players at his home and training center in Lakeville. “I live in Lakeville, and I’ve tried to always be a good citizen of the city,” Merrick said. “I want to make a difference in the lives of young people in the area.” A number of legal documents associated with the case, including the original and amended complaints and both sides’ pre-trial briefs, are posted on the Lakeville Soccer Club website, www.lakevillesoccer. org. The club, one of the state’s largest with more than 3,000 players, is anxious to move on, Barnes said. “It would be better if we didn’t spend hundreds of hours on (the lawsuit) instead of doing what we want to do, which is letting kids play soccer,” Barnes said. “That’s the frustrating part.”

agreeable terms. “The Board of Directors on behalf of Lakeville Soccer Club would like to thank Alan Merrick for all the contributions he has made to this Club over the years. Alan Merrick, through his locally based Alan Merrick Soccer Training, will continue to serve this and surrounding communities with personalized skills training and player development services for individuals or teams.” In a telephone conversation Wednesday, Harrison, Rost and LSC treasurer David Barnes said they remain convinced that the LSC board acted within the law and in the club’s best interest by terminating Merrick’s contract. “We were very confident in our case,” Barnes said. “We believe we would have prevailed, but when you have a jury trial, nothing is for certain. One of the things we concluded was it was time to move forward.” Mark said Merrick received the balance of his coaching contract – which was to run through July 31, 2013 – and attorneys fees in the settlement. Beyond that, “it was important that his reputation, which has been impeccable for 40 years, be cleared,” Mark said. “It was devastating,” Merrick said of the episode. “Members of the club had been left with the suggestion that I had done something horribly wrong.” Merrick arrived in Minnesota from England in 1976 to play for the Minnesota Kicks. He settled in Minnesota after his playing career ended and went into coaching. He has worked with youth, college and professional teams and currently is head boys varsity coach at Eagan High School and head coach of the University of Minnesota men’s club team. The lawsuit alleged that Harrison and Rost sought to remove Merrick as coaching director largely because Merrick opposed a plan to let LSC teams at the Under-8, U10 and U12 levels play against older competition. According

to Mark, the teams that would have been allowed to “play up” were coached by LSC board members or had players whose parents were on the board. Harrison and Rost said Wednesday that two board members acting alone would not have the authority to terminate a contract employee. They also said Merrick initially agreed with the policy change to allow some teams to play up. “You can talk about vendettas and other loaded words, but what it comes down to is, there’s a board,” Harrison said. “The board would have to approve” an action such as terminating an employee. The defendants contended that Merrick breached the contract first by not completing three of the six goals outlined in the contract and completing others “in a less than satisfactory manner,” according to a district court memorandum filed in February 2013. For each of the three unfulfilled goals, there were several disputed factual questions including whether actions by members of the club prevented Merrick from completing the goals, the memorandum stated. In a pre-trial brief filed May 6, 2013, the defendants stated that Merrick had personality clashes with some board members, including a profane insult directed at Harrison. The LSC asked Merrick to sign a “Performance Improvement Plan” in late 2011. Merrick refused to sign it, saying that the document sought to expand his duties beyond what was in the original contract, but agreed to try to complete tasks that were identified as unfinished. One of those was to complete age-specific development plans and coaching guidelines. They originally were to be completed by July 2011 but the deadline apparently was extended. They were to be uploaded to a Google Docs account that the club created by Jan. 17, 2012. Whether Merrick did so is in dispute. Merrick said he received error messages when attempting to upload the documents, but was able to accomplish it one day before the deadline.

Lakeville man plans cross-country adventure Nathan Mehlhoff will hike, blog to California run in the newspaper and online at He will advertise his blog, which also serves as a safety net, with a sign he will wear and business cards he plans to hand out. “Other people will know exactly where I am and what I’m doing,” he said. While the idea of a cross-country hike sprung out of an adventuresome spirit, Nathan also decided to use it as a fundraiser for Feeding America, a hunger relief charity. “I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for people in poverty,” Nathan said. For a class project, Nathan talked to people in a Winona shelter and posted the interviews online. He was so moved by their plight that he did another interview on his own; both are posted on his blog. While working as a delivery driver in Winona, he noticed someone had given him a $50 tip, likely in error. “The next week, every day I drove down the street looking for someone to give the money to,” Nathan said. He eventually spotted Don Rogers, a Vietnam veteran, standing


For the rest of the year, Nathan Mehlhoff will be pacing himself. The 22 year-old Lakeville resident will step out his parents’ front door June 17 to begin a cross-country walk alone from Minnesota to San Francisco, Calif., a trip of just over 2,000 miles. The Winona State junior estimates a four- or five-month journey, tentatively planning a route through South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Nevada to reach California. Nathan said he may bunk at homes of strangers vetted through the website, or sleep under the stars in a sleeping bag he will carry. Other gear he plans to bring includes a backpack, tent, walking stick, bear spray, knife, spare batteries, solar charger and food. Key to his trip is a smart phone that he plans to use to blog his adventure at www.seeingitslowly. com. Nathan will also provide Sun Thisweek with intermittent reports and photos about his trip that will

along the road with a sign; Nathan asked him if he was looking for spare change, took him out to eat and wound up with a new friend. They talked about the condition of the country, their histories and families; they did not talk about Vietnam. Nathan has bought Don meals a few other times. “I learned a lot from that guy,” Nathan said. He described his decision to hike across the country as a personal quest born of a sudden idea on May 14. The plan gelled after detailed research and speaking with others who have embarked on similar journeys. “In the beginning I was not too sure why,” Nathan said. “But I’m doing it to kind of reaffirm who I am. It’s something I want to do very much, take a great adventure. It will be a growing experience and a learning experience.” It could also be a dangerous experience, said Nathan’s dad Richard.

House sustains smoke damage

MEHLHOFF, from 9A cern,” Richard said. “It’s a lot of wide-open country out there and things can happen, so we have a lot of worries about safety not only from people and animals but from the elements, the weather, sun and blisters.” Nathan quelled their concerns with his thorough preparation and ready answers for every question his parents posed. “He seems to have slowly been resolving our concerns,” Richard said. “We ask him, and he’s already considered it and has come up with a solution. That helped us feel better.” Nathan said others have made similar journeys and had great experiences staying with people they meet. “Apparently there’s a lot of nice people out there, and I’m on my way to go find them,” Nathan said. He also hopes to make money from his blog, possibly establishing a career that would allow him to make a

living blogging about his adventures. Richard described Nathan as “a very deep thinker,” good writer and hard worker. An English major, Nathan said he is taking a break from school and has been working two restaurant jobs that have helped him get used to spending 40 and 50 hours per week on his feet. He plans to return to college next spring. He said training he did for fun in mixed martial arts, boxing and self defense also helps him feel more prepared for taking the journey on his own through areas he has always wanted to see. “There are a lot of cool landscapes and sceneries,” Nathan said. “And it’s warmer in the South.” He also is a two-time “Tough Mudder,” twice finishing the 10- to 12-mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test strength, stamina, and mental grit that has included mud, barbed wire, fire

and live dangling electrical wires carrying charges of up to 10,000 volts. “People were getting shocked,” Nathan said. “They would go face down in the mud and still have to keep going. It’s not impossible for anyone as long as they are prepared and determined. It feels great to finish it.” Once Nathan finishes his own course and arrives in San Francisco, he plans to spend a few days, possibly checking out the Pacific Coast Trail, before taking a two-day trip back on a bus. Nathan said he has weighed the risks, noting that shortly after he made the decision to go, there were deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma. “It scared me, but it didn’t scare me that I was going to go on a walk and get killed,” Nathan said. “It scared me to die without having done anything awesome.” Laura Adelmann is at laura.

Lakeville firefighters extinguished a house fire June 10, but the Huntington Path residence was left with excessive heat and smoke damage inside. There were no occupants home at the time of the blaze and flames were not visible from the exterior. Smoke was seen coming from upper level windows and firefighters contained the fire to the laundry room. The cause of the fire is still being investigated, according to Fire Chief Mike Meyer.

How 5 Lies About BACK PAIN May Keep You Hurting, Frustrated & Exhausted... Forever! MYTH #1: Sciatica (pain down your leg) is always caused by a herniated disc! No way... even though most doctors will sell you a $3,000 MRI at the first sign of leg pain. But they don’t tell you about a 5-inch muscle in the hip that can squeeze the sciatic nerve. And it feels EXACTLY like you’ve got the worst slipped disc on earth. The good news is that it can be easy and inexpensive to correct! MYTH #2: Stiffness from Arthritis means you’re getting old. Not true, because thousands of folks with arthritis in their backs have absolutely NO PAIN! Then why do YOU feel like your back will snap if you bend forward or twist too fast? Because the truth is: Your stiffness may be caused by a hidden, even more dangerous problem than arthritis. Did you know that many arthritis problems are CAUSED by a combination of unseen imbalances in the spine and surrounding muscles? It’s the most common cause of hip replacements but not that hard to correct if we catch it in time. MYTH #3: Your Back is “Out”! Sure, that’s exactly how it feels. But guess what, we found that’s usually not the case. It sounds good, but we now know better. You see, there are 7 different reasons for that painful, locked-up and stuck feeling that causes so much misery:

• Low-grade spasm • Pelvis torque and tension • Imbalance of hips • Fallen or dropped arches • Stiff vertebra joint • Adhesions in leg muscle • Pinched nerve It’s NOT just your spine, and it’s NOT just your muscles. As a matter of fact, if one of the major muscles that stabilize the spine is partly spasmed, a “2nd stringer” will have to carry the load. MYTH #4: “It’s Only a Muscle!” Boy, it’s scary how many people think muscle problems are no big deal. Unfortunately, tight, bound-up, and spasmed or tight muscles can wear out joints faster than you can say, “Charley Horse”! That’s why it’s important to examine the spine AT THE SAME TIME as the muscles that control it. MYTH #5: “Muscle Relaxants” will help your muscles heal! Good grief, NO! Good grief, NO! Your muscles tighten up for a reason, and muscle relaxants are like turning back the clock on a time-bomb... you know it’s still going to blow up! Sure, you may feel better now, but you’ll pay later. So don’t fall for these lies about your low back. They’ll keep you hurting, frustrated and exhausted— forever!

Lakeville Tee it up for the Troops donation

Blessing of the Bikes is June 15

The 20th annual Twin Cities Blessing of the Bikes will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 15, at Hosanna church, 9600 163rd St., Lakeville. The event will include coffee and donuts from 8:30-9 a.m.; a motorcycle ride (no registration needed) from 9-11:30 a.m.; and lunch (brats and burgers, lemonade, water, root beer floats), live music and speakers, including an inspirational speech from a biker, from noon to 3 p.m. The event is free to attend, but a free will offering will be taken to offset operating costs. The Rev. Mike Swecker, of Hosanna, said if the The Lakeville Tee it up for the Troops committee made a $1,000 donation to the World weather is good the event War II Weekend group to ensure their weekend in May went on rain or shine. The funds were used to provide a tent to allow World War II vets to tell their stories in a shaded place. Lakeville Tee it up for the Troops’ second annual golf charity event at Brackett’s Crossing Country Club will be Monday, Sept. 16, with a fundraising goal of $30,000 to support wounded veterans.

could attract as many as 500 motorcycles and about 750 riders. If the weather is bad, planners are prepared to move the event indoors. Swecker said there will lots of great bikes to look at and great people watching. Local military veterans are encouraged to attend to receive thanks for their service, Swecker said. Music will be provided by the Daisy Dillman Band. Swecker said the event started in 1993 and ran for 15 years as the Cross of Christ Blessing of the Bikes at the church of the same name in Lakeville drawing 400 to 600 motor-

cycles. It moved for two years to New Day Church Elko where attendance dwindled to 50. In 2010 it moved to the Hosanna location, and, as Swecker notes, is 1 mile from “motorcycle row” where three motorcycle dealerships are located. The church name was dropped at that time to call the event the Twin Cities Blessing of the Bikes. Swecker said attendance has climbed every year since and is becoming well known in the Twin Cities motorcycle circles. More information is at or 952-435-3332. – Tad Johnson

about the plans, noting he will also lose an in-ground sprinkler system and underground pipes he has installed for neighborhood volleyball games in his yard. Smith’s neighbor, Amy Jo Johnson, is also losing multiple mature trees and expressed concern their removal would decline property values. “I’m not very happy about it,� Johnson said. “Everybody’s landscaped all the way down this road.� Ken and Noreen Tolonen, Flagstaff Avenue residents since building their home in 1973, said the whole area will be affected by the swath of trees being taken down. “That just destroys the character of the neighborhood,� Ken Tolonen said, but added that he understands there would be a lot of issues if the gasoline line ruptured “because there’s so many trees, they wouldn’t be able to get at it.� Noreen Tolonen said that when they moved in, there were corn fields and residents planted the trees. “We love the trees. It took us 40 years to get it like this,� Ken Tolonen said. Flagstaff Avenue residents Arnold and Sue Molde are also original owners who have lived there four decades and planted the mature trees in their yard that are slated for removal. The company has offered to let them move a smaller one to another part of the yard. Arnold and Sue Molde said they are sad that a silver maple given to them by Arnold’s late father and mother will be removed, but surmised they would have to take it out anyway because part of its trunk splits, raising concerns it could damage their home in a storm. “It’s kind of bittersweet,� Sue Molde said, noting they will not miss the “zillons� of seeds that fall from the trees. “We knew there was an easement when we built the house,� Arnold Molde said. “What can you do? They have every legal right to do this. It’s a safety concern and I understand that. These trees put out some horrendous roots.� CRASH, from 1A ney James Backstrom said that this case is being filed under Minnesota’s extended juvenile jurisdiction statute, which will provide a stayed adult prison sentence if the driver is convicted of these crimes and extend the juvenile court’s jurisdiction over the case until the individual convicted of the crimes reaches age 21. “This case appears to be an example of how quickly an inexperienced driver can lose control of a vehicle if speeding and driving recklessly,� Backstrom said. “This also underscores the importance for all persons in a vehicle to wear a seat belt.

It is also party to a 2010 class action lawsuit in Missouri by property owners alleging their property was damaged by hazardous chemicals migrating from a pipeline easement onto their land. According to Magellan, the company never transported hazardous materials through the pipeline. Pipeline ruptures can lead to explosions and fires as occurred in Mounds View, Minn., July 9, 1986. At 4:44 a.m. that morning, explosions and fireballs spewed from blown-off manhole covers, and flames were reported shooting up higher than electrical poles, as gasoline flowed along neighborhood roads, according to a Star Tribune news article. The National Transportation Safety Board determined the cause of the incident that killed two people to be failure of Williams Pipe Line Company to correct known deficiencies in the pipe and the company’s failure in its inspection and enforcement program. The board also determined the company failed to adequately train its employees to respond to emergencies involving failed sections of its pipeline. Magellan acquired the Williams in 2002, according to a Magellan, and on Sept. 1, 2003, Williams Energy Partners, L.P. changed its name to Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P., according to the 2003 Energy Pipeline Year in Review. Magellan says its refined petroleum products pipeline system runs 9,600 miles, and is the longest refined petroleum products pipeline system in the country. It operates a 24-hour emergency hotline at 1-800-720-2417.

Tree roots could dent underground pipes, increasing the pressure, which could cause a leak, Heine said. He said the company will perform the work at no cost and restore the lawns to their original condition once the work is complete. Little said he and city staff met with company officials Tuesday seeking compensation or replacement for the residents’ lost trees. “My goal in meeting is to minimize the impact on the people’s property rights and housing value, and also the look of the neighborhood,� Little said. Hours later, company officials sent an email to Little stating they do not compensate landowners for trees removed during the right-of-way clearing process, but offered to give landowners the firewood and/or chips from their trees. Little said he is disappointed the company is offering no compensation to homeowners despite “intruding� on their lives and property.

deepest sympathy is extended to the families and friends of Frederick Alexander and Alesha Roehl for their great loss.� The juvenile petition filed on June 12 alleges that the driver was driving in a grossly negligent manner when traveling southbound on Buck Hill Road at approximately 2:30 p.m. The accident reconstruction completed by the Minnesota State Patrol estimated that the vehicle was traveling 96 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone when it became airborne. The driver lost control of the vehicle that spun around 180 degrees and hit the curb. The vehicle then rolled six or seven times end-over-end down

an adjacent hill, landing on the southbound lanes of I-35. Alexander was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene. Roehl was ejected from the car and was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center, where she died at 7:42 p.m. that evening. A 17-year-old male was also ejected from the car and received a severe laceration to his right arm, among other injuries. The three passengers ejected were in the back seat of the vehicle and not wearing seat belts. The driver and a 16-year-old male in the front seat of the vehicle were wearing their seat belts and were not ejected

from the car. The driver had just gotten the vehicle four or five days prior to this incident. The investigation revealed that the driver was weaving back and forth while accelerating. The driver told investigators that he thought it would be fun to swerve back and forth while driving and that he must have hit the gas pedal instead of the brake before he lost control of the car. The front seat passenger told investigators that the driver sped up and started to swerve back and forth before losing control of the car. The passenger told him to slow down before the crash occurred. – Tad Johnson

Reetz said he thought it was a positive process because with smaller groups of people it was easier to establish connections. His initial goal is to get to know students and staff and he has already started

to attend Lakeville North games. Reetz said he will be very visible in the school. “I will be in hallways and at events,� he said. Reetz’s decision to come to Lakeville North was especially difficult for Prior Lake athletes because they consider the school to be their biggest rivalry. “They do like to beat the Panthers,� Reetz said, adding that he may be a little quiet during the first

few times the Panthers play the Lakers, “but my loyalty will definitely be with the Panthers moving forward.� Reetz’s salary is $99,000; in Prior Lake his salary was around $80,000.

Lakeville North to state for first time since 2005 Lakeville North takes section baseball championship by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville North had to survive three white-knuckle games while facing elimination from the Section 3AAA baseball tournament – and the Panthers expected nothing less. “We talked about needing to play our best ballgames at the end, and that’s what we were able to do,” North coach Tony Market said after his team defeated Burnsville 2-1 on June 6 in the section championship game at Alimagnet Park. “This section is The Lakeville North baseball team celebrates after win- tough, and Burnsville’s ning the Section 3AAA title last week.

Panther Ben Krynski wins the state shot put title First individual state champion since 2005 by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville North’s Ben Krynski is focusing on the positive. Last weekend he won the Class AA state title in the shot put with a toss of 57 feet at Hamline University in St. Paul. He out-tossed secondplace Payton Otterdahl from Rosemount by 10.25 inches. Krynski wasn’t the favorite when the season began. Last year Krynski finished fifth at the state meet with a toss of 49-9, but he improved almost 20 percent over the offseason. He didn’t foresee throwing this far back in March when the season began. “I thought maybe I’d be in the lower 50s, make state, maybe place,” Krynski said. He gave credit to his coaches Tim Kasper and Lindsey Booth. “I just kept getting in the reps and grooving my technique,” Krynski said. “I continued to lift weights and work out.” There’s a lot more to throwing a shot put than

being the biggest, strongest guy. “Throwing is really with your legs and core,” Krynski said. “Really the reason I succeeded is because I was so fast through the circle. Bigger guys are usually stronger, but if they’re not moving the shot put fast enough through the circle, they’re not getting the distance.” Krynski was favored in the event after throwing 5711 at the Section 1AA meet about a week earlier, but nothing was a given. “My coaches told me I was physically prepared,” Krynski said. “I just had to get mentally prepared. My dad telling me to enjoy the moment really took the pressure off.” He found out how little was given the following day. Krynski was also the top seed in the discus event on Saturday. He fouled on his first two attempts and tossed a 139-8 on his final shot, well below his season best at 171-11, which put him 12th overall. “It was a big disappointment,” Krynski said. “I felt like I let the coaches and parents down. But having

them tell me they were so proud of me helped me out. I have to focus on winning the state championship and one bad performance doesn’t define who I am or what I accomplished.” He’s the first Panther to bring home a gold medal since 2006 when the 4x800meter relay won the state title. The last individual to win gold was long jumper James Ewer in 2005. Krynski will be throwing at Iowa State next year. Even though he was a starter on the state-qualifying football team and a captain on the wrestling team this season, Krynski’s passion is on the field throwing things around. “I’ve always just loved track,” he said.

Other results The 4x100 relay of Nick Valentini, Michael Beuing, Kyrell Newell, and Justin Greene just missed finals by 0.04 seconds, placing 10th overall. The top nine make it to finals. The group was without its top sprinter Andrew Anyaugu, who was out with injury.

Brandon Morgan’s twoout single in the top of the seventh inning scored Jake Braun from second base with the eventual gamewinning run. Junior pitcher Nick Dorfman, who threw a complete game and didn’t allow an earned run, closed out the Blaze in the bottom of the seventh. Lakeville North was to play Rocori in the Class 3A quarterfinals at Midway Stadium on Thursday, after this edition went to press. Lakeville North (194) qualified for the state tournament for the first time since winning the Class AAA championship in 2005 as Lakeville High School. That was the season before the school district opened its second high school. “It’s kind of strange to think that it’s our first time

as Lakeville North,” Market said. “We’ve had some good teams since 2005, but it’s not easy to get though this section. You have to have great kids, great coaches throughout the program, and I think you saw from the number of Lakeville people that were here today that we get great support.” Burnsville (17-6), seeking to reach the state tournament for the third time in four years, defeated Lakeville North 2-0 in the winners bracket final May 31. That left the Blaze needing one more victory to reach state, but it lost consecutive 2-1 games to Lakeville North on June 4 and 6. Burnsville defeated Lakeville North twice during the regular season, outscoring the Panthers by a combined 21-4. “When they 10-runned

us late in the (regular) season, we said, ‘OK, we have to show we’re better than that,’ ” Morgan said. “We lost to them 2-0 in the section because we made a couple of mental errors, but we knew we were right there.” The May 31 loss to Burnsville left North needing three victories to go to state. The Panthers defeated Eagan 3-2 on Monday before their back-to-back victories over the Blaze. On Thursday, Burnsville took the lead in the fourth inning when Cooper Maas scored from first base on a bunt that was intended to advance him to second. Aaron Rozek put down the sacrifice and was thrown out at first. Maas, seeing that no one was covering third base, kept See BASEBALL, 16A

Lakeville South track and field team runner-up at state With 79 points, girls outscore their total from last year by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Lakeville South girls track and field team fell short of defending its Class AA state title last weekend at Hamline University in St. Paul. The girls finished in second place with 79 points in the Class AA state meet, 15.5 points behind the winners from Minnetonka, but the girls weren’t exactly disappointed. In many ways, the girl did better than last year. Going into the meet, the Cougars knew it would have been tough to win it all again. “We knew Minnetonka was seeded to win it and we were 30 points behind them,” head coach Andrew Hilliard said. “We knew we’d have to have a pretty unbelievable meet Lakeville South’s Kaytlyn Larson runs the 800-meters at the Class AA state meet at Hamline University on June.

Lakeville North gets the better of Blaze in rematch Panthers go to girls lacrosse semifinals by Mike Shaughnessy SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Thirty-two shots on goal for Burnsville, and 12 goals. That told the story for the Blaze – and for Lakeville North, which rode its strong defense and goaltending to the state girls lacrosse semifinals. Generally, teams expect to score on more than half of their shots on goal. The Panthers’ defense helped them to take a six-goal lead by halftime and hold off Burnsville in the second half of a 16-12 victory in the quarterfinals Tuesday night at Chanhassen High School. “They were getting some really good shots,” said North goalie Alyssa Friesen, who

was credited with 11 saves. “I stopped a few, and my defense got some of them.” The Blaze also had at least three shots hit the goal frame. Meanwhile, the Panthers were able to find the mark with their shots – especially junior forward Kacie Waagbo, who led North with five goals. Lakeville North (13-4) played Eden Prairie (16-1) in the state semifinals Thursday, after this edition went to press. Burnsville (14-2) faced Champlin Park in a consolation semifinal. The state tournament ends Saturday with the third-place game at 1 p.m. at Chanhassen High, the consolation final at 3 at Chaska High School and the championship game at 5 at Chanhassen. Burnsville was making its first appearance at state, and

coach Sarah Windhorst said the Blaze still had plenty to play for. “One of our goals at the beginning of the season was to make a statement at the state tournament,” Windhorst said. “You don’t necessarily have to do it by winning the state championship game. We’re not going to come out (Thursday) and act like the game doesn’t mean anything. You have to respect the game. Playing at the state tournament is an honor.” Hannah Koloski scored four goals for the Panthers, and Logan Dobratz, Lauren Storhoff and Emmie Madsen had two each.

Five silvers for Lakeville North girls track team Preachuk, 4x100 take second at state meet by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Five Lakeville North girls track and field athletes walked off the track at Hamline University in St. Paul on Saturday with a smile and a silver medal around their neck. The 4x100-meter relay finished in second place thanks to the efforts of Emily Okins, Kendall Naatjes, Claire Seivert and Alexa Trakalo, who completed the race in 48.87 seconds. “We had so much adrenaline today,” Naatjes said. “Everything really clicked.” The girls were one-hundredth of a second ahead of the group from Roseville and 0.65 seconds behind the winners from Hopkins, who set a new Minnesota all-time record. “We only ran it a couple times this year, so we were a little surprised,” Trakalo said. “It was really exciting because this was my last race as a senior.” Trakalo, who has a scholarship to play soccer at South Dakota State University, leaves as a threetime all-state track athlete. It was also the last race for Okins, who is moving. The girls couldn’t always practice or compete together with coaches strategically placing them in the other events where they could score the most points. “We ran so many other events, so we were spread out,” Seivert said. “We ran really well (in the preliminaries), so we thought ‘let’s go for it.’ ”

running. Lakeville North scrambled to cover the base but a throw got away and went into foul territory, allowing Maas to score. In the sixth, North infielder Connor Christenson hit a two-out single, scoring Zach Creighton from second base. In the bottom of the inning the Panthers threw out a Blaze runner who was trying to score on Camden Traetow’s single.

Lakeville North’s Michaela Preachuk finished second in the 100-meter hurdles at the Class AA state meet last weekend. (Photo by Rick Orndorf) But it was nice when it finally came together. “It’s a team thing,” Okins said. “We were really close this year. It’s fun to encourage each other. .” Head coach Todd Endersbe wasn’t surprised by the outcome. “It was huge but not totally unexpected,” Endersbe said. “They had a very good section meet and ran strong in the state prelims.” Michaela Preachuk also earned a silver medal. She was the second girl to cross the finish line in the 100 hurdles in 14.61 seconds. It was a personal record for the sophomore and a school record. She was one-hundredth of a second behind winner Rachel Schow from Rose-

mount. Preachuk finished second in the Class AAA state True Team meet a month earlier, but cut nearly a second off her time at state. Lindsey Smits was seventh in the 100 hurdles and 17th in the triple jump. “Both will continue to push each other next season,” Endersbe said. “If they continue to train hard in the offseason and stay healthy, they’ll have another memorable season. Taylor Perkins finished 16th in the 3,200, running the course in 11:14.08, and Katie Dillie was sixth in the high jump with a leap of 5-4. The combined efforts helped put the girls 10th in the state with 27 points.

Even though the Cougars didn’t win it all again, Hilliard felt his team had plenty of reason to celebrate. “They were worried about matching last year’s success, but the thing is, I think they were better,” Hilliard said. “They scored more points at True Team state and they scored more points (at the Minnesota State High School League state meet).” Lakeville South scored 22.5 more points this year at state compared to last year when the Cougars won it all. “A lot of years 79 points is more than enough to get

The 4x200 with Cozad, Lubow, Emily Wick and Mickelson ran in 1:43.37, good enough for fourth. The 4x800 relay was 12th and the 4x100 was eighth.

A New Treatment is Helping Patients with Knee Pain Live a Happier, More Active Lifestyle Living with knee pain can feel like a crippling experience. Let’s face it, your knees aren’t as young as you used to be, and playing with the kids or grandkids isn’t any easier either. Maybe your knee pain keeps you from walking short distances or playing golf like you used to.

thing I normally do in my “Knee Pain Evaluation”. Just call before May 20th and here’s what you’ll get… • An in-depth consultation about your problem where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A complete neuromuscular examination. • You’ll see everything fi rst hand and fi nd out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients. The fi rst 20 callers ONLY can get everything I’ve listed here for only $60 (up to a $350 value). So you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer.

Nothing’s worse than feeling great mentally, but physically feeling held back from life because your knee hurts and the pain just won’t go away! My name is Dr. Phil Gilman, D.C., Owner of Lifespring Wellness Center. Since we opened over twenty years ago, we’ve seen hundreds of people with knee problems leave the office pain free. If you’re suffering from these conditions, a new breakthrough in medical technology may completely eliminate or significantly reduce your pain and help restore normal function to your knees.

The COLD Laser is an outpatient, non-surgical procedure, often used in physical therapy and sports medicine to accelerate the healing process. It offers non-invasive treatment to promote healing for those who suffer from pain in muscles, nerves, and joints, like that associated with chronic knee pain. This same laser is used by professional sports teams including the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Bengals.
