Despite years of complaints and pleas by citizens and local officials, some Lakeville residents’ closest neighbors are unused railroad cars. Various rail cars, often rusting, graffiti-covered, have been parked behind homes by Progressive Rail Inc. for about four years, blocking views and inviting controversy. Residents have raised concerns over public safety and declining property values while complaining

that the cars, parked behind their homes, have interfered with their ability to enjoy their property or sell it if they want to move. Parked rail cars in neighborhoods also concern city and state leaders, but there are no regulatory options to change or control the situation that Lakeville policy documents call “visual blight.” “There is not a thing the city can do,” said Diane Volz, a Lakeville resident Neighbors say young people are often seen violating trespassing laws by climbing since 1994. “Their hands and running on parked rail cars stored for years by Progressive Rail behind Lakeville are tied. The railroad has homes, raising safety concerns. Neighbors have for years tried to get the parked trains out of their backyards, but have had little success. They say the tracks and trains are See TRAINS, 3A also used by photographers. (Photo submitted)

Local officials agree the best solution to growing traffic levels on Kenwood Trail is to widen the road to four lanes, but with limited funds and right-of-way challenges, it is uncertain when the work could be done. In the meantime, access and safety concerns have been raised as Dakota County is planning to build a two-lane roundabout at 185th Street and Kenwood Trail (County Road 50) next year. Residents have questioned the proposal, suggesting steady traffic through the roundabout would further slow wait times for drivers turning onto County Road 50. Parents and school officials have also raised safety concerns regarding Kenwood Trail Middle School, located just south of the planned roundabout. The school’s only accesses are off the busy Kenwood Trail, the city’s most heavily-used connector to I-35, and parents have likened crossing it to “playing chicken.” An option to move the signal at 185th Street

Lakeville Mayor Matt Little said city officials are not backing off efforts to fast-track construction of a third lane in both directions on Interstate Highway 35, even as the state closes the road for repairs this summer and has no funding for adding lanes. Little said during the May 31 edition of the Lakeville television pro-

gram, “City Limits,” even though adding the construction work to the state’s schedule was “impossible in their budget,” the city is not giving up on the possibility of combining the projects. “We’re going to continue to pursue that option even as they repair the current road,” Little said in the video.

Your lawn care impacts health of our lakes Lakeville residents value the beautiful lakes and wetlands of our City. That’s why we are reminding everyone that these amenities need your help to preserve their quality. Your lawn care practices can have a huge impact on our lake water quality. The first thing you should know is that grass clippings = phosphorus. Natural phosphorus is good for lawns. In fact, leaving grass clippings on your lawn provides the equivalent of one application of fertilizer per year. Grass clippings are free and this is an easy way to help keep fertilizer chemicals out of our waters.

Dispose of clippings properly. If you decide to bag your clippings rather than leaving them on your lawn, please dispose of them properly. It is against City ordinance to dump clippings, especially around lakes or ponds. All waste haulers provide yard waste collection services, or you can find do-it-yourself composting instructions or compost site locations at www.lakevillemn.gov, under Environmental Resources, where you can also watch the new video about how storm sewers are connected to our ponds and lakes!

Natural phosphorus is bad for lakes and ponds. The same way phosphorus feeds lawns, it feeds algae in nearby waterbodies and causes nuisance algae growth. The water turns green and negatively impacts quality and clarity. According to City Environmental Resources Manager Mac Cafferty, there are two simple things you can do to help maintain our lake water quality: 1.

When mowing, mow your first two swaths away from the paved surfaces, then leave your grass clippings on the lawn. 2. Always sweep all loose grass clippings back onto your lawn so they don’t get washed into the storm drain and on to lakes and ponds. These two steps can make a big difference in how much phosphorus gets into our lakes, streams, and wetlands.

When grass clippings wash down City storm drains, they go directly into the our lakes, streams, and wetlands, feeding algae and degrading water quality.

TRAINS, from 1A more rights than God.” Railroads are regulated by the federal government under the Interstate Commerce Law because their operations cross state boundaries, said Dave Christianson, Minnesota Department of Transportation senior planner for rail and freight operations. He said the state also has limited powers regarding railroads. There are no regulations for stored freight cars. Christianson said the state can send an inspector if there is an unsafe condition, like cars blocking a crossing. If there are safety violations, the company is asked to correct the problem. Christianson said Lakeville residents’ complaints regarding car storage are referred to Progressive Rail. Some residents say they are not satisfied with Progressive Rail’s response, and call the parked trains “ugly” and an attractive nuisance to youth. “We see kids climbing on trains a lot,” said Angela Vandenbusch, Lakeville. “They are running on top of them, lifting up the doors on top, climbing all over them.” It is illegal for anyone not employed by the railroad to enter a train track or climb on rail cars, yet youths are drawn to the parked rail cars. Residents say they are concerned someone could be hurt or killed on them. Lakeville resident Theresa Johnson said she has seen teens running and jumping on top of the trains from car-to-car. “There is some partying or activities at night,” she said. “There are things being thrown at trains and banging on the cars themselves.” Progressive Rail President Dave Fellon said anyone on railroad property is trespassing and police should be notified, adding

that parents should keep better watch over their children. Lakeville police received three train trespassing complaints from June 1, 2012, to June 1, 2013, according to Valerie Kehrer, records supervisor. Last October, a caller reported a photographer using the trains for senior pictures, and last August juveniles were reportedly seen running, jumping and sitting on the cars throwing rocks onto a nearby street. In all the instances, Lakeville police were unable to locate anyone in the area, Kehrer said. Fellon said he understands the neighbors’ concerns and always responds to their inquiries. “I appreciate their concerns,” Fellon said. “I have a home, I’ve listened, I’m concerned about it. I’m working with everyone. You can’t say we don’t respond.” Residents complain obscene graffiti on the trains have exposed their children to inappropriate language and drawings. Some photos of the graffiti were so graphic this newspaper would not publish them. “All they would have to do is put the cars a block further south,” Vandenbusch said. “At least people could barbecue in their backyard without looking at an ugly train.” Fellon said that track in Lakeville neighborhoods is all he has available. “If we have room to move things around, we will do that,” Fellon said. “But we’ve exhausted every one of those options. The only space I have left open is Lakeville.” He added that every time they receive a request to remove graffiti from the trains they have done it. “But if it’s local teens doing the painting, that’s another story,” Fellon said. “They have to respect railroad property, too.” Christianson said Minnesota is one of the few

states that does not give railroads the power to police their own property for trespassing and property safety issues. “We’ve proposed it in the past, but it has not gone over well,” Christianson said. “Legislators are cautious about extending police powers to any agency not reporting directly to the government.” Local officials would like some more control over the parked trains. A 2009 Lakeville City Council legislative policy, still a top initiative, asks federal legislators to create laws or rules prohibiting storing railroad cars in residential neighborhoods without the written consent of the city. “The only thing we can do is talk to them and ask them to change,” City Administrator Steve Mielke said. Fellon said there are fewer cars on the tracks than in the past, and he hopes the remaining ones will be gone soon as the economy improves because they are needed for transportation.

Blight Until 2009, Lakeville residents had not seen rail cars parked in their neighborhoods. “For our first 18 years we lived in this house, the trains were basically not used or on occasion a train came through with a couple of cars,” Johnson said. “We knew when we bought the house the tracks were behind our house. We didn’t expect there would be a rail storage space behind our house. These kinds of cars should be stored in an industrial area.” Progressive Rail stores the cars for customers on track it leases from Canadian Pacific, and some residents say they resent that the company is making money from blighting their property. “He gets paid for each car parking and we’re sup-

posed to police it and lose money in our property values,” Volz said. Dakota County Assessor Bill Peterson said the county has reduced those Lakeville property’s land values by 5 percent because of the parked railroad cars. “Some of those tracks didn’t necessarily have as much activity before, but our appraisers felt that because of parking cars on there, it did warrant some type of a reduction,” Peterson said. He said if the cars had not been there, the land values probably would not have been reduced. “It certainly has had an influence on our adjustments,” Peterson said. Fellon said he has no other choices but to park the cars in the neighborhood, and while the economy is improving in some areas, it is still a far different environment from 2008 when consumer demand kept rail cars operating. “We’re not in the business to store cars, but when our customers are not having the business they need, we have to,” Fellon said. He noted the oil tankers that used to be stored in the neighborhoods have moved into operation following the oil boom in North Dakota. “Some industries are recovering, thanks to a good energy program out there,” Fellon said. According to the Association of American Railroads, the train industry appears to be slowly recovering. The association report-

Opinion Families will pay more thanks to union payback by Pat Garofalo SPECIAL TO SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Last week in the waning hours of the 2013 session, with the budget still unfinished, Democrats were pushing through one of the worst pieces of legislation I’ve seen in my time at the state Legislature. The bill, which passed by just one vote in spite of strong bipartisan opposition, aims to unionize child care providers and personal care attendants. If the unionization effort is successful, it will have far reaching impacts; providers will see their costs increased and will be forced in to a union they do not want, and parents will pay more and have fewer providers to pick from for the care of their children. Unlike a normal union, where employees form a union in order to collectively bargain with their employer, the proposed union for child care providers and personal care attendants would take the unprecedented step of unionizing child care providers, nearly all of which are independent small business owners.

Guest Columnist

Pat Garofalo

The union would extract more than $8 million in dues from providers around the state who accept child care assistance subsidies from the state. These subsidies are intended for low-income parents who otherwise could not afford child care for their children while they work during the day. Providers who don’t wish to see their costs increased would be forced to either pay “fair share” dues to the union, about 85 percent of the normal dues, or stop accepting children who rely on child care assistance program subsidies. Similar efforts to unionize child care providers in other states have resulted in higher costs for providers and parents

with zero increase in the subsidy rate that Democrats claim will be improved with the union in place. Child care is expensive. As a parent, I’m all too familiar with how costly it is, and how difficult a decision it is for a parent when looking at who to trust to care for their child. Reducing the number of providers for low-income families, and increasing costs on providers and parents alike is flat out wrong. Over 80 percent of providers in a recent survey stated that they opposed this unwanted and unnecessary unionization effort. Editorial boards across Minnesota spoke out against the bill including the two largest papers in the state. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and former union officials publicly opposed it as well. The reason for the widespread opposition was that Minnesotans recognized this legislation for exactly what it was: a payback to special interest allies who spent millions to elect Democrats to the Legislature. And Minnesota is already seeing the

consequences of this special interest payoff; a lawsuit was filed by a group of child care providers, the same group who successfully blocked Gov. Mark Dayton’s executive order to hold a unionization election that was eventually ruled to be illegal. This will mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs for the state of Minnesota, all at the expense of you, the hardworking taxpayer. Democrats have made it clear they are more beholden to their union bosses than they are to families around Minnesota. Raising the cost of child care, and imposing a union on providers who don’t want it is hardly what Minnesotans expect in a “better Minnesota.” Minnesota deserves better than this, and I hope we will see better judgment exercised by Democrats in the next session. Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington, represents District 58B, which includes the city of Farmington and townships to the southeast. Columns reflect the opinion of the author.

Questions about the 2013 Minnesota Legislature by Joe Nathan SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

What are key questions arising from the 211 page K-12 education bill that the Minnesota Legislature produced? Give the 2013 Minnesota Legislature considerable credit. It expanded longneeded opportunities for many young people and families. But several things deserve additional attention in 2014. Why did the Legislature allocate almost three times as much money for all-day kindergarten, as it did for 3- and 4-year-old low-income family scholarships for early childhood education? According to “Session Weekly,” produced by the Minnesota House, all-day kindergarten received $134 million. Scholarships for 3- and 4-year-olds to attend strong early childhood education programs received $46 million. Head Start also received about $40 million. Even if you add the scholarship and Head Start money together, all-day kindergarten received almost $50 million more.

Sun Thisweek Columnist

Joe Nathan

Considerable research shows the value of working with young children and low-income families, especially if that effort continues through third grade. All-day kindergarten is not a bad idea, but couldn’t wealthy parents help pay for all-day kindergarten if they want it? Budgets are in part a statement of priorities. Minnesotans often say we want to close or dramatically reduce major achievement and high school graduation gaps. Given this priority, early childhood programs for students from low-income and limited English speaking students should be a higher priority. Why did the Minnesota Senate wait

until the last few days to begin discussing a bill designed to reduce bullying, and then ultimately not pass it? Anyone who’s been bullied (as I have), or had a child who was victimized, understands this can have very bad impacts, short and long term. It’s a problem in many communities, rich and poor. How is Minnesota going to measure student progress beyond standardized tests and high school graduation rates? Are students learning to set goals and work toward them? Are students learning to work with others in a group? Are students learning to make a presentation to others? A group of alternative and charter public school educators made recommendations about how to assess some of these skills. Some refer to them as soft skills, but growing evidence says these are vital skills for success in life. The Legislature did not do much with these recommendations. I hope these suggestions are refined, and that the 2014 Legislature works with educators and

families to broaden our assessment programs. Why not allow undocumented students to earn a driver’s license? The Legislature wisely will allow young people who have lived in Minnesota for several years, but are not citizens, the opportunity to pay in-state college tuition. But in many cases, students need to drive to colleges and to work. Why not more funding to help fulfill state mandates about serving students with special needs? A survey I did earlier this year of more than 40 superintendents and charter school directors identified this as their top priority. This year’s Legislature did many fine things. But there’s much more we can do to help students achieve their potential. Joe Nathan, formerly a Minnesota public school teacher and administrator, directs the Center for School Change.

Letters Support was overwhelming To the editor: Special thanks to the city of Lakeville Police Department, Lakeville Area School District 194, Schmitty bus service, and the numerous Lakeville businesses and volunteers who helped support the first annual RUN2WALK. The weather held out until the last two runners were in sight of the finish line. Special thanks to Thrivent Financial for donating $3,000 in matching funds. The event hosted 410 registered runners and raised $22,200. The proceeds will be donated to Dillon Borowicz, Lakeville class of 2013, and Scott Proudfoot class of 2006, both of whom are paralyzed as a result of diving accidents. We are humbled by the generosity and outstanding support of our amazing community. Thank you so very much. ANN PROUDFOOT on behalf of the families of Dillon Borowicz and Scott Proudfoot Lakeville

Keep the faith To the editor: Fellow Christians,

keep the faith. Our society seems to be in a tailspin for the worst, but we need to keep the faith. If we remain faithful to God, He will remain faithful to us. Read Exodus to see how faithful God is to his followers. He will not allow this rapid decay of our society to go on forever. Thanks to leaders like Sen. Dan Hall, R-Burnsville, we do have some leaders who are keeping the faith and trusting in God. Unfortunately, we have political leaders and some church leaders who Jesus would refer to as “hypocrites.” They claim to be doing God’s work and following God’s laws but they are only fooling themselves and some uninformed followers. Read Matthew 23 to learn more. We have a local leader who may belong to a Catholic church, but cannot be practicing his faith. Our Catholic Church does not condone gay marriage and will never do so. Read Romans 1 to learn more. We have another leader in this area who is a former teacher.

and doing whatever feels good with no boundaries. These teachers go into society and try to pass on this idea of being all inclusive. Our country was built on Christian values and we have a handful of leaders who want to destroy that system. We need to fully support our leaders like Hall who are willing to keep God at the center of their decisions. Either you are with God or you are against God, read Matt 12:30 for more information.

ate students will benefit from a tuition freeze at all five University of Minnesota campuses for the next two academic years. That’s a savings of about $2,500 per student. Meanwhile, Minnesota industries will grow thanks to new investments in research and innovation at the university. Gov. Mark Dayton and the Minnesota Legislature invested in critical scientific advances in food production and protection, robotics, water quality and addressing brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. This cutting edge research will improve lives in Minnesota communities and around the world, and spark new and growing industries in our state. These investments in the university are good news for our state. I thank Dayton and our legislative leaders, including Higher Education chairs Sen. Terri Bonoff and Rep. Gene Pelowski, for investing in students and

Paragon reveals list of brands at Eagan outlet mall Mall has spurred interest in nearby properties, city officials say by Jessica Harper

IN BRIEF

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Coach, Puma, J. Crew and Banana Republic will be among the brands to occupy the $100 million Paragon Outlets mall in Eagan when it opens in August 2014. These are just a few of the approximately 100 upscale stores that will occupy the 440,000-square-foot mall, said representatives at Paragon Outlet Partners, a Baltimore-based retail real estate developer. Paragon released its short list of tenants on June 4 during a groundbreaking at the mall site, located near the intersection of Highway 13 and Silver Bell Road in the Cedar Grove Redevelopment District. Last year, Paragon secured Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th as its anchor tenant. Tuesday’s groundbreaking is the result of 20 years of planning and redevelopment led by the Eagan City Council, Dakota County Community Development Agency and area partners who sought to turn the aging neighborhood into a gateway for the community. “Breaking ground is the first step in our full vision,” Mayor Mike Maguire said. “It’s really an extraordinary sign of Eagan’s patience.” Plans for the Cedar Grove district sat dormant for years until July

Brands currently committed to Paragon: Banana Republic Factory Store Brooks Brothers Factory Store Calvin Klein • Coach Crazy 8 Gap Factory Store J. Crew • Janie & Jack Johnston & Murphy Michael Kors Nike Factory Store Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store Puma Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th Swarovski Tommy Hilfiger Van Heusen Wilson’s Leather

Development Agency owns six parcels within the district, and in recent months city officials have received a flood of calls from developers interested in building hotels, housing and retail on one or more of the parcels. Among them is a proposal from Apple Valley developer Stonebridge Communities, which wants to purchase 4.8 acres in Cedar Grove near the intersection of Cedar Grove Boulevard and Cedar Grove Parkway to build a four-story, mixed-use building. The proposed project includes 180 market-rate rental housing units combined with between 12,000 and 14,000 square feet of commercial space. Stonebridge has built several townhome and mixed-use buildings in the Twin Cities, including Waterford Commons, a four-story complex in downtown Rosemount that includes 108 rental housing units above 13,100 square feet of retail space. The EDA will likely vote on a final purchase agreement and concept plan next month. If the EDA approves the agreement, Stonebridge would need to go before the City Council with zoning and plat plans before moving forward.

The Paragon site isn’t the only part of Cedar Grove that’s making progress. The outlet mall has spurred interest from developers of adjacent properties, said Jon Hohenstein, Eagan community development director. “Paragon by itself is a major step,” Hohenstein said. “It ensures one big aspect: what the district will look like.

Developer eyes Cedar Grove district for four-story apartment, retail complex

Kline visits Inver Hills

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

U.S. Congressman John Kline, R-Burnsville, paid a visit to Inver Hills Community College on May 30 for a conversation with college leadership on the financial aid system, college readiness and cyber security. The visit comes on the heels of the U.S. House passing Kline’s Smarter Solutions for Students Act (H.R. 1911), which promises to prevent subsidized Stafford loans from doubling on July 1 and offer a long-term, market-based solution to the student loan issue.

the property, said Wally Johnson, president of Stonebridge Communities. Stonebridge has previously built several similar buildings, including Waterford Commons, a fourstory complex in downtown Rosemount that includes 108 rental housing units above 13,100 square feet of retail space. The developer’s interest in the Cedar Grove site was piqued, in large part, by recent progress made on the Paragon Outlet center, which broke ground on Tuesday, Johnson said. City Council members strongly urged Stonebridge representatives to consider incorporating unique features on the property since it is on a key corner of the district. “This will be a huge gateway for us,” EDA Member Cyndee Fields said. “We want some amazing piece.” Johnson assured the council Stonebridge will include a prominent feature such as a water fountain to give the district an urban feel. “We understand the importance of this corner,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be a sharp-looking building when we’re done.” Although mixed-use buildings have struggled in some suburbs, Johnson said he is confident such a development will thrive in Eagan. “We have no qualms about it at all,” he said.

to inspect copies of the actual bills passed for Health and Human Services and E-12 Education as well as researcher reports on details contained in the bills. The AP class provides students the opportunity to gain credit applicable to their college plans while studying the functions of government.

Just hours after breaking ground on Paragon’s outlet center, Eagan city officials weighed in on a sizeable mixed-used proposal from an Apple Valley developer. The Economic Development Authority voted on June 4 to enter into negotiations with Stonebridge Communities, which submitted a $1.8 million offer to purchase 4.8 acres in the Cedar Grove Redevelopment District to build a fourstory apartment and retail complex. The EDA currently owns the property, which is located near the intersection of Cedar Grove Boulevard and Cedar Grove Parkway east of Jensen’s Supper Club. The proposed Cshaped structure would include 180 market-rate rental housing units with between 12,000 and 14,000 square feet of commercial space below a section of apartments. The developer envisions high-end units that would include fireplaces, balconies, on-site laundry facilities and underground parking, and range in price from approximately $900 for a studio to approximately $2,200 for a three-bedroom apartment. “It really is reflective of the earliest vision of what Cedar Grove is,” Mayor Mike Maguire said. Once complete, Stonebridge will continue to own, operate and manage

Hansen expressed concern about whether Stonebridge’s proposed development would create a “canyon effect” with the four-story Keystone apartment complex nearby. “I would like it to be different kinds of streetscapes,” he said. Other EDA members welcomed the urban concept. When considering uses in the retail space, EDA Member Paul Bakken said he would like to see a microbrewery, if possible. “I wouldn’t want to limit the developer but would like to look at options that could possibly be added on if viable,” Bakken said. Eagan Community Development Director Jon Hohenstein noted that, although a microbrewery could be an option, it could potentially create night time traffic and other issues when combined with nearby businesses. The EDA will likely vote on a final purchase agreement and concept plan next month. Before striking a deal, the EDA will review a price range created by the city attorney that is based on market analysis. If the EDA approves the purchase agreement, Stonebridge would need to go before the City Council with zoning and plat plans before moving forward.

ed U.S. rail traffic was up 1 percent through May compared to the same time last year, but still down from its peak in 2006. It also reported the number of freight cars in storage also declined between last year and May 1, the fourth consecutive monthly decline, putting the number of cars in storage at its lowest level since April 1, 2012. Fellon said Progressive Rail is receiving fewer inquiries about storing cars than in the past. “Two to three years ago, nobody saw any light in the tunnel,” he said. That light could lead to a different kind of train issue for the neighborhood. Canadian Pacific turned down the county’s proposal to build a greenway on its rail property through Lakeville. The idea has been abandoned because the company sees the freight corridor as “a long-term

strategic asset” that they want to keep, Dakota County Senior Planner John Mertens said. “They see it as a freight rail connection to Minneapolis someday,” Mertens said.

Frustration Mielke expressed frustration that while the city has authority over other industrial properties to require them to remove graffiti from buildings, it has none with rail cars. Local, state and federal officials shared Mielke’s expressed frustration about the lack of control. U.S. Rep. John Kline and Sen. Amy Klobuchar have written the U.S. Surface Transportation Board seeking resolution, and U.S. Sen. Al Franken has also raised concerns. A Surface Transportation Board spokesman who asked that his name not be published said there are no regulations for stored freight cars, and since railroads are privately owned, they are free

Graffiti on trains that have been parked in Lakeville residents’ backyards for the past four years have included a large skull, profanity and the a warning of severed limbs under the train.

issue, stating the Lakeville rail cars “need to be moved.” State Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville, said local governments should have more control over railcar storage “because it’s people within the community that are bothered and inconvenienced by it.” Lakeville Mayor Matt Little agreed, noting the city has limited function in regulating any federal railway, but has developed a relationship with Progressive Rail, so the city is getting information on the types of cars that will be stored in neighborhoods. “I would love to see something done in which local municipalities could have some kind of role in regulating rail car storage,” Little said. “We’re doing as much as we can at the city level.” City Council Member Doug Anderson disagreed, stating the city needs to work harder to look for a solution. Asked if he thought the city has done enough, he said: “Clearly not, because the concern still exists.”

Her advice to Lakeville? “Start working on the political part of it,” Henry said. “Try to get congressmen to work a little harder on it. I think it’s going to take something bigger than state and municipal government to get the rail cars moved.”

Change elsewhere Other areas of the country have been more successful in getting rail car storage out of neighborhoods, including in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. and New Castle, Ind. Eva Henry, a county commissioner in Adams County, Colo., said about four years ago, Union Pacific began storing cars behind an upper-end neighborhood. in Thornton,

Colo. “They brought them in, parked them and left,” Henry said. Like Lakeville, residents there complained the cars were unattractive, graffiti-covered and a potential hazard for children. At first, local officials’ calls to Union Pacific were fruitless, because “they passed phone calls like you don’t matter,” Henry said. But local, state and national elected representatives were persistent. The company’s re-

sponse changed dramatically when U.S. Rep. Jared Polis walked into Union Pacific’s Washington, D.C., office and talked to them. “He had just gotten elected, and was in office a couple of months when he walked down there,” Henry said. “Within a week or two, they moved them.” She said she does not know what Polis said, and he did not respond to calls seeking comment.

Get strong, reduce stress with yoga BY ROXI REJALI CONTRIBUTING WRITER Todd Johnson does a lot of heavy lifting. Muscle aches and pains are an unavoidable part of his job as a baggage handler for Delta Airlines, where the 56-yearold loads and unloads freight from aircraft. Five years ago, Johnson discovered yoga. As a weight lifter and runner, the Lakeville resident was already physically fit when he first tried a yoga class at a friend’s suggestion. He was hooked. “I loved it, just because it was so physical and had this great feeling afterwards,” he said. Johnson decided to complete teacher training and now teaches yoga part time at Green Lotus Yoga and Healing Center in Lakeville and Mendota Heights. He credits yoga’s stretching and muscle-strengthening moves with helping him avoid work injuries and reducing stress on and off the job. “I think I’m in the best shape of my life, mentally and physically,’’ he said. Yoga’s mental and physical benefits come from a blend of physical poses, deep breathing and meditation. With roots in ancient Indian philosophy, yoga was in-

troduced to many Americans in the 1960s. More than 13 million adults practice yoga, according to a 2007 study. Yoga has also caught the attention of medical researchers. Recent studies show that yoga may decrease lower-back pain, decrease heart rate and blood pressure and reduce stress, anxiety and depression. One recent study shows that the “relaxation response” produced in practices like yoga, meditation and deep breathing can actually change the behavior of genes that regulate important body functions. Those changes may counter the harmful effects of stress on hypertension, diabetes, anxiety and even aging. “It’s almost as if the body can heal itself,” said study coauthor Jeff Dusek, research director at the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. Using blood samples, researchers analyzed biological markers for the genes of study subjects. Even after as little as 20 minutes of relaxation training, researchers found changes in the way that genes behave. The changes boosted activity of genes related to immune function, en-

ergy metabolism and insulin production, while they decreased gene activity involved in inflammation. The study also suggests that the relaxation state may help slow aging by protecting telomeres or components of genes that control aging, Dusek said. “Potentially, if people do this for a long period of time, the potential is that they could — I’ll be careful — but they potentially could impact their longevity,” he said. Yoga is so effective because it connects physical movement with breath, said Marcia Appel, founder of Green Lotus Yoga and Healing Center. It strengthens, stretches and tones the body while increasing flexibility and balance. Deep breathing and meditation reduce stress and focus the mind. Cross-training allows students to work different body parts. Vinyasa and hatha classes build muscles and strength, while gentle and restorative yoga allow muscles to relax and rebuild, she said. Yoga’s benefits extend beyond the classroom. The discipline helps students to focus attention on the “present moment” and slow down

the frantic pace of modern life, Appel said. “If you’re always physically doing something but your mind is somewhere else, you’re not connected,” she said. “Your body and your mind are disconnected.” Yoga is a consistently popular fitness class at District 196 Community Education in Rosemount, Apple Valley and Eagan, said adult enrichment coordinator Janis Stoven. Yoga has been offered since 1996 and some students sign up for classes year after year. The district’s gentle yoga class may appeal to older adults, but also to students with injuries, disabilities or those who want an introduction to yoga practice, instruc-

tor Ronda Willsher said. When students come to class with knee replacements or shoulder injuries, poses can be modified so they can be performed sitting in a chair or holding one for balance. “People who have issues with mobility or if they haven’t exercised much, I’ll offer ways they can do it, so they can fully participate,” Willsher said. Yoga is also being adapted for the younger set at Clear Light Yoga and Enrichment Center in Rosemount. At parent-child yoga classes, parents and their children ages 2-6 play games and move through poses together, said studio owner Christy

Koepke. Koepke encourages students to drink plenty of water. Beginning classes are heated to 85 degrees, while more advanced classes are set to 95 degrees. “It is a great workout,” she said. “It’s really good for your body to sweat.” Sweating also eliminates toxins from the body like oils, water and salt, Koepke said. “It’s a really good flush for your whole system, in that it increases your circulation and increases your metabolism,” she said. Fast-paced classes are designed to challenge students physically and mentally, she said. The studio opened in January, attracting students ranging in age from 16 to

65 years. Even after an intense workout, students leave the studio recharged, she said. “They’re tired, but it’s a really great feeling of tired maybe in their physical body, but really energized in spirit,” she said. Because the heat and humidity, hot yoga may be physically stressful. Government guidelines recommend wearing lightweight clothing and drinking water before, during and after a session. Women who are pregnant and people with heart or lung disease, or a history of heatstroke should check with heath care providers before starting this type of yoga.

Power yoga is a hot ticket BY ROXI REJALI CONTRIBUTING WRITER Are you looking for a workout to burn calories, raise the heart rate and get the blood pumping? Then power or hot yoga may be for you. This trendy style of yoga is taught in rooms that can be heated up to 100 degrees. Some yoga styles involve long, slow stretches, but students in power yoga classes perform an athletic series of poses that provide a total-body workout. It can also be called flow yoga, vinyasa flow or Bikram yoga. Classes at Fusion Yoga in Eagan are heated to warm up muscles quickly, allowing students to relax into postures, said studio manager Brigitte

Runningen. Most of the studio’s classes are for adults, but children’s classes can boost self-confidence and body image for that age group, Runningen said. Yoga may be a great choice for kids who want to be physically active but don’t enjoy competitive activities, she said. The “tween” yoga class, designed for ages 7-12, begins with discussion about peer pressure, self-confidence and friendship issues, followed by a yoga session. “It’s giving them an avenue to be able to focus and understand themselves, to be more in control and more confident in themselves,” Runningen said.

Horse ranch will serve troubled children Haven Acres approved in Burnsville by John Gessner SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Ruby is a 9-year-old quarterhorse with foot problems. Araby is a 25-year-old Arabian who needs soft feed because he’s missing teeth. Jasper is a small cart pony who’s 95 percent blind. All live on Jason and Jenifer Heath’s six-acre lot in southwest Burnsville, where the couple plan to match horses needing extra TLC with kids who could use some, too. The Heaths are launching a youth mentoring ranch at their home at 2604 Loop Road. Their nonprofit Haven Acres is premised on the therapeutic power of working with horses along with the Heaths’ deep Christian faith. Children ages 9 to 17, paired with a horse and a mentor, will learn about horsemanship and hard work, such as cleaning stalls or mending fence. Based on an established horse ministry in Oregon called Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch, Haven Acres is meant to help troubled kids. “We’ve had people tell us we’ll never have a shortage of kids,” Jenifer Heath said in an interview. The City Council on Tuesday approved the Heaths’ application for an interim-use permit to operate a private recreational use on their property, which is zoned one-family rural residential. The five-year permit allows the Heaths to have up to 10 horses on the property (there are now seven). The mentor program will be allowed to operate no more than four days a week. Operations are expected only during warm-weather

months. Haven Acres will be “a great asset to our community,” Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said. The Heaths, who attend Celebration Church in Lakeville, already know some children they’d like to serve. “Right now the kids are just some kids that we know or go to church with, or other kids that are friends of the family, having a hard time, whether it’s depression or anxiety or suicidal thoughts or learning disabilities or maybe just loneliness or bullying at school or having trouble fitting in,” Jenifer said. “It just helps build their confidence to be able to gain the respect of a large animal and learn how to work with the horses.” The Heaths moved to their home at the southwest intersection of Loop Road North and Judicial Road about a year ago. “I always wanted to have acreage and have animals,” said Jenifer, 40, who moved with her husband and their five children from a smallerlot home in Burnsville. “We have goats as well. But I didn’t have in mind when we moved here we would do a project like Haven Acres.” She’d heard about Crystal Peaks years ago on a Christian radio program. Some friends of the Heaths back in their home state of Oklahoma started their own youth ranch there. Jenifer thought such a program might be good for her husband’s second cousin, whom the couple helped raise and is now an adult. He suffered from depression, she said. “We started talking about (Haven Acres) in

November of last year,” Jenifer said. “It’s coming together quickly.” The couple have their 501(c)3 status as a charitable organization and a seven-member board of directors. Their volunteer equine manager is Mikayla Vig. “Everything thus far has been funded by us and couple of generous donors,” said Jenifer, an emergency-room nurse in Chaska whose husband is an Ameriprise financial adviser. Each child at Haven Acres will be paired with a horse and mentor. Children will always be with two adults when they’re working with a horse, Jenifer said. Their 90-minute sessions will include 30 or 40 minutes of chores, followed by lessons in basic horsemanship and grooming. Children won’t ride until they’re ready, Jenifer said. “Most of these programs — and that’s why we’ve got horses that have special needs — use rescue horses for the express reason that there’s something kind of magical about horses who have been abandoned or neglected or abused in some way,” Jenifer said. Haven Acres will have skilled horsepeople doing the instruction, but not all the mentors will necessarily be equine experts, Jenifer said. “The mentors will go through an interview, and they’ll be handpicked, basically,” she said. “We want to have people who have our same faith values.” Information is at www.havenacresmn.org.

Doug Anderson in February advocated that the city ask the state to widen the highway from County Road 70 to County Road 50 at the same time it performs repair work. City Council Member Colleen LaBeau said in February it seems “foolish” and expensive to resurface the freeway this year and in a few more years add the third lanes in both directions instead of doing the projects together now. The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s repair projects on I-35 started in May and included a monthlong closure of the southbound fly-over bridge on 35E; the bridge reopened June 3. Freeway lanes through Lakeville will be reduced to one each direction in mid-July until the end of summer, and MnDOT has warned drivers to expect significant congestion. City Administrator Steve Mielke has said the Federal Highway Administration has already pointed out traffic levels on I-35 warrant the need

for additional lanes, but state funding has not been allocated. On the city’s program, Little called expanding I-35 the city’s “big focus,” stating that reducing congestion on the city’s only north/south freeway access is “critical” to the city’s business sector. “A lot of our industrial manufacturing businesses use semi trucks to get in and out, so if there are delays on 35, they lose money,” Little said. He said the city is working to establish a coalition of cities and other governmental entities to gain support to widen the busy freeway and would continue the effort even as the state’s planned maintenance work gets underway. “We’ll certainly be doing a heavy amount of lobbying the necessary government entities to get that project accomplished,” Little said. Mielke called it a “huge initiative” that would take years to accomplish. In an interview, Mielke said the I-35 Solutions Alliance, a multi governmental coalition of cities from Minneapolis to Elko New Market, has

included additional lanes through Lakeville as one of its priorities. “That was not the case previously,” Mielke said, adding the coalition works with the Metropolitan Council and MnDOT to establish priority road projects. Mielke said he has also received support from Dakota County engineers and the city’s elected county representative Commissioner Paul Krause. “I’m working right now to find membership cities and counties, and perhaps the private sector, that will come together to try to advocate for additional lanes,” Mielke said. He said the city’s goal is to get the project into the state’s long-term plans, perhaps within five or 10 years. “It’s an expensive project,” Mielke said. “It has to compete with others across the metro. It’s not the sort of thing that you just write a letter and hope that it happens. It’s going to take concerted effort.” Laura Adelmann is at laura.adelmann@ecm-inc. com.

ing a stoplight at 192nd Street on Kenwood Trail because many of the area’s hills and curves cannot be corrected during road construction. Typically, such projects include work to straighten roads and flatten hills to improve viability. Without correction, Sorenson cited concerns of decreased driver sight lines horizontally and vertically, increasing the chances for an accident if drivers are caught unprepared for the stop. “We’re careful where we put in signals,� Sorenson said. “I know the gut reaction with a lot of the public is you put in the signal and now we’ve created a safe intersection and that’s not what we see. We see most of our crashes at our signalized intersections.� He said the county and school officials are still discussing options to improve traffic safety, including eliminating left turns at 192nd Street. The roundabout is projected to have little effect on traffic flow levels on Kenwood Trail according to the county’s study. Sorenson said the double-lane roundabout is planned to accommodate truck and bus traffic. He said circular intersections also reduce wait times, traffic back-ups and fatalities because vehicles travel in the same direction, eliminating the possibility of right-angle T-bone crashes. Another area of concern has been Jaguar Avenue, a lakeside neighborhood off Kenwood Trail, just south of the school, that has one road access. The county study found converting to a roundabout at 185th Street caused little change to the number of traffic gaps at Jaguar Avenue, regardless of whether there was a signal installed at 192nd Street. According to the county, there is an average of 115 gaps her hour during morning peak use times at Jaguar Avenue and 75 gaps per hour during peak evening hours. With the roundabout, the county found an average of 117 gaps her hour in the morning and 68 gaps per hour in the afternoon peak use times. To reduce wait times, the county suggests widening the Jaguar Avenue entrance to allow both right and left turns out of the neighborhood. In the long-term, the county suggests adding a connection from the Jaguar neighborhood to Ipava Avenue as a second outlet. Sorenson indicated these kinds of changes would have limited effect to the overall issues on Kenwood Trail, because the real solution is widening the road. “We need to go to four lanes at some point,� Sorenson said. “The city and county can talk about when that makes sense, how it can be funded and how that fits in with other priorities, but if the city grows like it plans to grow, we’re going to need to get to four lanes.� Lakeville City Council members indicated interest in widening Kenwood Trail, but reserved determining priorities for road projects until they have reviewed the city’s Capital Improvement Plan and other capital needs. Council Member Colleen LaBeau also said she would like input from the Envision Lakeville committee before making such decisions. Sorenson said the county plans to conduct a follow-up study after the roundabout is open to compare actual traffic conditions to the model predictions.

Deborah Lysholm chronicles story behind Apple Valley’s Heartbeat Studios in ‘Dancing to My Heartbeat’ by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Deborah Lysholm gave up everything to start Heartbeat Studios – even her home. After fleeing an abusive marriage – and launching the first-ever domestic violence trial in civil court – Lysholm sold her home and all of her possessions in 1996 to buy the property on 145th Street in Apple Valley that would become Heartbeat. When she and her daughter Kristin Freya opened the studio in 1998, Lysholm describes it as a “dream that became reality.� But there were some lean times at the outset, with Lysholm, still homeless after the purchase of the studio space, secretly living at Heartbeat the first three years. A dancer since age 4 who had been teaching dance classes through School District 196 Community Education prior to opening her own studio, Lysholm chronicles her and her daughter’s odyssey from abuse victims to performing arts center directors in her new book, “Dancing to My Heartbeat,� which was published in May by Beaver’s Pond Press. “The important message of the book is that people in bad situations – mine happened to be domestic violence – can escape them,� Lysholm said. “The book is also about the healing aspects of dance – when you dance, you reclaim who you are, and it just gives you a respite.� Heartbeat celebrated its 15th anniversary last year. What began as a small dance studio has blossomed into a full performing arts center and now offers acting, piano

Deborah Lysholm, right, and daughter Kristin Freya opened Heartbeat Studios in 1998 after fleeing years of abuse at the hands of Lysholm’s husband and Freya’s father. Their saga is documented in Lysholm’s new book, “Dancing to My Heartbeat�; Freya penned the book’s introduction and is credited as contributing author. (Photo by Andrew Miller) and voice lessons in addition to its array of dance classes. The studio serves about 500 students each year. Part of the success of Heartbeat, Lysholm said, has been the relationship building with other dance studios around the globe. Heartbeat has “sister studios� in Barcelona, Milan and Geneva, and over the years Lysholm has taken groups of her students to perform at venues in Japan, Spain and England. Some highlights of her

end Gregory Hines and staging a dance adaptation of “Star Wars� with the blessing of George Lucas. Lysholm does speaking engagements on the subject of domestic violence in addition to continuing to run Heartbeat. The studio’s next dance recitals are June 15-16 at Eastview High School. “Dancing to My Heartbeat� is available through online booksellers such as Amazon.com. More about the dance studio is at www.heartbeat-studios.com.

Sports Lakeville North qualifies for state girls lacrosse Panthers stun Lakeville South in section final by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

The Lakeville North girls lacrosse team is going to the state tournament for the first time on its own, but the Panthers had to beat some former teammates to get there. The Panthers defeated Lakeville South 12-7 in the Section 1 final on Tuesday during an overcast, often rainy evening. But for the Panthers, it was nothing but sunshine. “I’m speechless,” head coach Mo Gaitan said. “I’m so proud of these girls. They worked really hard for this.” A combined Lakeville North/South team qualified for state in 2010, but split into separate programs the following year. “I was teammates with some of those girls and every one of them are amaz-

ing players,” said Lakeville North’s Kacie Waagbo, who led the team with five goals on Tuesday night. “But this group of girls at North is amazing. We came to play tonight.” Lakeville South was upset. The Cougars came in as the top seed in Section 1, an undefeated record, a No. 3 ranking in the state and a South Suburban Conference title. Lakeville North knew they were the underdog, especially after losing to Lakeville South 10-9 earlier in the season. “I’m glad we got that loss out of the way,” Gaitan said. “I watched that tape four times. I asked ‘how did that girl get through? What can we do to stop them?’ We hammered it through practice.” Against South, Lakeville North’s quick transition on the fast break was clicking and goalie Alyssa Friesen was hard to get through.

Lakeville North scored eight goals in the first half, the most the Cougars had given up since allowing 11 against Burnsville in the second half of the second game of the season. Lakeville North limited the Cougars to just two goals in the second half, extending its lead to 12-7 before time ran out. “Alyssa was a brick wall,” Gaitan said. “We worked with a lot of things with her and it was apparent they came to light. She’s our 12th player on the field. She acts as if she’s a field player.” Friesen was inspired by the fact that her high school career was almost over. “We did a lot of work on defense and how their attack sets up,” Friesen said. “I knew if I didn’t play our full potential, this would be my last game. I didn’t want this to be our last game.” The girls will play at the state quarterfinals on Tuesday at Chanhassen. The semifinals are Thursday and

Panthers put up a fight

finals are June 15. Other teams that qualified include No. 1-ranked Eden Prairie and No. 2 Blake, two teams that also defeated Lakeville North this season. With three of the team’s losses against the top three teams in the state, Gaitan said her team took the losses as a learning experience, knowing that the season was never over unless they lost in playoffs. “Our regular-season play is a lot different play,” Gaitan said. “Obviously we were still going to go hard, but it was not our best lacrosse. Now is our best lacrosse. It’s a very different mindset that we have now.” Many of the girls are excited about the chance to play at state for the second time. “I think we’re just as good, if not better than the team that went to state my freshman year,” senior Hannah Koloski said. Koloski was a starter with the combined North/

At the time, the state tournament featured four teams. This year the Minnesota State High School League expanded the bracket to include eight sections

and eight teams. In previous years, the Lakeville schools played in Section 3 and last year the Panthers got close to going back. In 2012, Lakeville North lost to Apple Valley 9-7 in the Section 3 finals as one of the final eight teams remaining. See LACROSSE, 16A

Panther doubles play with nothing to lose at state tennis Sophomores Yee and Parkinson hope this is just the beginning for Lakeville North by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

For the first time since 2004, Lakeville will be represented at the state boys tennis tournament. Justin Yee and Max Parkinson made the trip to the Baseline Tennis Center at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis on Thursday to play in the Class AA doubles tournament and were happy to bring Lakeville North’s name along with them. The last time Lakeville sent anyone to state from the boys team was Pat Curran and David Stark Lakeville North’s Dalton Lehnen, in 2004, when Lakeville top, throws out a pitch, and LakevNorth was Lakeville High ille North’s Jake Braun (8), right, School. beats the tag on Tuesday in the Yee and Parkinson finSection 3AAA final at Alimagished second at the Section net Park in Burnsville.

said. “This is a stepping stone. We’re only going to get better. Our team is so young.” It was a special moment for the boys when their peers acknowledged their accomplishment. “The day we won our match we were getting congratulations from people in the hallway,” Parkinson said. “It was cool to be recognized.” The two played mostly singles during the regular season but the coaches figured they would have a better chance if they combined forces for the section tournament. After playing two matches this season in the doubles lineup, as well as at last year’s section tournament, they weren’t clueless. But doubles is a different game. “It’s more exhilarating,” Yee said. “The mental stage is different. It’s more of a teamwork thing.” Both enjoy the doubles game. “It’s fun working with a friend,” Parkinson said. “When you win a doubles match there’s more of a sense of accomplishment.”

They admit there was still some work to do before state after playing solo most of the year. “It’s more fast-paced,” Yee said. “Doubles is more of a net game, which we had to work on.” The two are sophomores, so no matter what happens on Thursday, they’ll look at it as a learning experience. “We’re going in with a fearless mindset with nothing to lose,” Parkinson said. “This will be a building block for the next couple years.” “We just want to play a good match,” Yee said. “Win or lose we just want to play well.” They’re a bit of a surprise entry. They defeated Cash Rodamaker and Mitch Johnson of Lakeville South in the section semifinal 6-2, 6-2, but lost to Rochester Mayo’s Michael Poeschla and Nick Ackerman in the final 6-3, 7-5. “We were in that match the whole time (against the Rochester Mayo team),” Parkinson said. “That was the best team we’ve played See TENNIS, 16A

Panther boys golf Blazing Cats’ achievement is historic Adapted softball title is program’s first qualifies for state by Mike Shaughnessy

by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Lakeville North will see how it stacks up against the best boys golf teams in the state next week after winning the Section 1AAA tournament on Monday at Bellwood Oaks Golf Course in Hastings. Lakeville North shot a 613 in Hastings, 13 strokes ahead of second-place Rochester Century. It was a relief for the Panthers to win the section as they know nothing is given. Last year the Panthers spent time ranked No. 1 in the state and were the favorite to win Section 1AAA, but Rochester Century played an incredible round and bounced the Panthers out. This time around, the Panthers didn’t take any chances. Freddy Thomas tied for medalist honors with a 147. He’ll be joined by Bobby Thomas (152), Mike Oberg (152), Eric Oberg (162), Carter Gidlow (164) and Joey Smits (170) in representing Lakeville North at the Class AAA state tournament Tuesday and Wednesday at Bunker Hills Golf Club in Coon Rapids. Other teams that qualified include Red Wing,

Hastings, White Bear Lake, Rogers, Wayzata and Forest Lake. Lakeville North last qualified for state in 2011 where it finished sixth with a two-day score of 618. Last year, Freddy Thomas qualified individually and went on to finish third overall, one stroke out of a tie for first. The Lakeville South boys golf team participated in the Section 2AAA tournament at Sand Creek in Jordan this week. The finals were on Wednesday, after Sun Thisweek’s deadline.

Girls golf In the Section 1AAA girls golf tournament, Lakeville North finished second, falling short of a trip to state by 23 strokes. Red Wing won the tournament after a brilliant round on day two of the tournament, shooting a 342 as a team on Monday at Cannon Golf Club. Lakeville North’s Brianna Vetter qualified individually after placing sixth with a 177. Megan Welch nearly qualified for state as well, but she lost a playoff with Megan Pulley of Albert Lea for the final individual berth to the state tournament.

SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

After surviving a tense semifinal game in the state adapted softball tournament, nothing – not even a chance to make history – was going to throw Burnsville/Farmington/ Lakeville off its game. When it came time to play for a state championship, “I don’t think any of us were even nervous,” said Blazing Cats shortstop Stephen Friday. They didn’t play like they were nervous. A 12-5 victory over North Suburban on Saturday afternoon gave the Blazing Cats the CI (cognitive impairments) Division championship and the first adapted sports championship in the Burnsville/ Farmington/Lakeville program’s history. Friday said the players were well aware of what was at stake, mainly because they kept coming closer and closer in other sports. “For (floor) hockey, we got second place,” he said. “For soccer, we got third. It’s great to be on the first team that won.” Burnsville/Farmington/Lakeville ended a 15-1 season with three victories in the state tournament last weekend at Coon Rapids High School. The Blazing Cats’ only loss this season was to Dakota United, which also reached the state tournament but lost in the quarterfinals. Burnsville, Farmington and Lakeville schools were part of the Dakota United cooperative before forming their own program several years ago. The Blazing Cats also were third

in last year’s state CI Division adapted softball tourney. “There’s a lot of competitiveness in these kids,” Blazing Cats coach Dave Diehl said. “Most of them play all three seasons, and as they became more successful they became more confident. “One of their biggest attributes is they’re really fast. They hustle, and they make plays in the field.” The Blazing Cats made few mistakes on defense during the state tournament. Friday, playing shortstop, made a couple of unassisted double plays in the championship. The Blazing Cats fell behind 3-1 in the second inning but soon caught North Suburban and eventually pulled away. Brendan Wong, a senior and the Blazing Cats’ pitcher, was 4-for-4 with four runs in the championship. The Blazing Cats defeated Mounds View/Irondale/Roseville, the top seed from the North Conference, 13-12 in a semifinal game that featured several lead changes. Friday scored four runs and freshman outfielder Cody Bali scored three times. The Blazing Cats stopped Osseo 12-2 in five innings in the quarterfinals. Friday, Bali and junior catcher Daniel Cline were named to the alltournament team. The question now is whether the Blazing Cats’ success can attract more students to the program. The CI Division teams appear to be well established, but the program is still struggling to recruit to its PI (physical impairments) Division teams. In softball, the Blazing Cats’ PI

In soccer, the PI team had to play shorthanded perpetually because it had only five players (teams are allowed to use seven at a time). But the notoriety that the state championship will bring can’t hurt, said Diehl, who coaches Burnsville/ Farmington/Lakeville teams in the CI and PI divisions. Six of the Blazing Cats softball players are seniors. “It was really important to win it for our seniors this year,” Friday said. Several others, including Friday, Bali and Cline, will be back next year for a team that is an emerging power in adapted athletics.

Several Panthers want Cougars girls track lines spot on podium at state up to defend state title by Andy Rogers SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Just about every member of the Lakeville North track and field team is hoping to walk off the field at Hamline University in St. Paul at the Class AA state meet on Saturday with a medal. Both the girls and boys teams are sending athletes with high expectations of making the finals. “Every athlete that we bring to state understands that the expectation is to get on the podium,” head coach Todd Endersbe said. “We are there to work, and the rewards of that hard work come afterwards.” One of the favorites is the boys 4x100-meter relay, which had its share of adversity this season. You need a track to practice a relay, but snow covered the track until early May, so the relay didn’t find its stride until recently. More trouble came when the team’s top sprinter, Andrew Anyaogu, was out because of an injury in the Section 1AA meet last weekend at Lakeville South. The Panthers had to make adjustments in the lineup when Anyaogu was pulled from the 100, triple jump, 200, and ultimately the 4x100 relay. He was replaced by Michael Beuning, who had run on the relay during the year. “We all felt confident in Michael’s ability to finish strong,” Endersbe said. “We talked in practice about switching the order but decided to leave everyTENNIS, from 15A so we tried to learn as much as we can.” Since Rodamaker and Johnson won a third-place match against Hastings’ Austin Houska and Craig Nielsen, there was no need for a true-second match.

one in place and replace Andrew with Michael.” With Nick Valentini, Justin Greene and Kyrell Newell in line, Beuning was set to cross the finish line in first. “We knew Winona had posted strong times earlier this season and thought we could hang with them,” Endersbe said. “Once Winona dropped the baton in the last exchange zone, Michael was all alone out front.” The four won the section title, earning the relay a spot at state. With a seed time of 43.66, the boys are a good bet to finish on the podium. Greene will run solo in the 100 after winning the section title. Another individual with high hopes is Ben Krynski, who is one of the favorites in the throwing events. “His two throws at section rank him No. 1 in both the shot put and discus,” Endersbe said. “Ben came in to the season very hungry due to missing standard as a junior by just a few inches. His goal has been to be the top discus thrower in the state. Now he has to be considered the favorite in the shot put.” His shot put throw of 57 feet, 3.5 inches at the section meet was the farthest of any section champion. Joe Stevens of Champlin Park is the only other Minnesotan to break the 57-foot mark this season. Krynski qualified in the discus with 171-11. The boys team tied Faribault for fourth overall in the section.

Girls track

Just as Yee and Parkinson lost, they found out that the Lakeville South team had won, meaning they were going to state. “We went over to the South doubles team and gave them hugs,” Parkinson said. Yee and Parkinson

played Matthew McNutt and Timothy Larson of Bloomington Jefferson on Thursday in the first round. Visit www.SunThisweek.com for an update.

The 4x100 relay of Emily Okins, Kendall Naatjes, Claire Seivert and Alexa Trakalo have a good chance to finish on the podium. The girls won the section title in 49.11, which was the fastest time of anyone else this year. The four girls really hadn’t put it together this season, missing a handoff at the South Suburban Conference meet last month. “I felt we had a solid 4x100 but just hadn’t put it together,” Endersbe said. “(They) gradually got stronger and faster throughout the season.” Their time at the section meet was the second-best in school history. Okins also won the 100 at sections, earning a spot at state. “She had a blistering start to her race that made everyone try to chase her down,” Endersbe said. Senior distance runner Taylor Perkins hopes to go out in style in the 3,200 as she fights for a spot on the podium. Michaela Preachuck won the 100 hurdles at the Section 1AA meet in 14.72 seconds. It was the fastest time reported this year and broke the school record by 0.28 seconds. Lindsey Smits will join Preachuck in the 100 hurdles and she’ll also compete in the triple jump. Katie Dillie is participating in the high jump. Lakeville North was second in the Section 1AA team competition behind Lakeville South.

The Lakeville South girls track and field team is sending an army of girls to state this weekend to defend its state title. All four relays qualified, and Kaytlyn Larson, Caraline Slattery, Shaina Burns and Jordyn Thornton qualified in multiple individual events. Burns is one of the fastest in the state in the 300-meter hurdles after winning the Section 1AA title on Saturday at Lakeville South. She’s also competing in the long jump and shot put. Slattery can triple jump farther than most, winning the Section 1AA title with a leap of 36 feet, 4.5 inches. She also cleared 5-8 in the high jump and was second in the 300 hurdles. Distance runner Larson will give it a go in the 1,600 and 800. She won the section title in both events. Thrower Jordyn Thornton will heave both the shot put and discus. Morgan Pieri also qualified for the high jump for the fifth-straight year. They all have a shot at finishing on the podium, meaning a top-eight finish, in their respective events. The relays also hope to finish the season on the podium. The 4x200 relay (Rose LACROSSE, from 15A “Last year this was taken away from us, so this feels really, really, really good,” Friesen said. In the section final, North struck first with an unassisted shot by Waagbo, but in the span of a minute and a half, South swung back in a big way with goals by Abbie Ness, Mikayla Jacobson and Madeline Canney. South pushed the lead to 4-1 with a shot from Logan Halvorson, its biggest of the night, but two goals by Emmie Madsen and another by Waagbo tied it back up with six minutes remaining in the

Cozad, Haley Lubow, Emily Wick and Rachel Mickelson), the 4x400 (Cozad, Rachel Mickelson, Slattery and Lubow), and the 4x800 (Emma Mickelson, Julia Durham, Erin Kilbride and Andrea Brekken) all won section titles. The 4x100 relay (Kacy Rodamaker, Alisha Skluzacek, Mallory Butchko and Wick) was the runner-up. The girls won the Section 1AA title with 190 points, 68 points ahead of second-place Lakeville North. The Class AA state meet is Friday and Saturday at Hamline University in St. Paul. Lakeville South won the state championship last year with 56.50 points, 7.5 ahead of Alexandria and Minnetonka.

Boys track There will be two Lakeville South boys track and field athletes participating in the Class AA state meet this week at Hamline University in St. Paul – not the ones people are expecting. Wali Ibrahim will run in the 3,200 and Thomas Lokkesmoe will give the triple jump a run at state. Both had season-best performances at the Section 1AA meet last week at Lakeville South. Lokksesmoe, a senior, saw his hard work pay off to end his high school career with a second-place first half. South’s Ness and North’s Waagbo exchanged goals, but in the final two minutes North took over. Emily Engelhart, Koloski and Waagbo gave North an 8-5 lead into halftime. “We began to connect our passes and focus,” Gaitan said. “Fast break is where we strive.” Ness wasn’t going to go out with a fight, scoring in the opening minutes of the second half off a fast break, but South was quiet for the next 13 minutes with shots ringing off the pipes while North’s Logan Dobratz and Madsen extended the lead to 10-6.

finish in the section. As a junior, Ibrahim hopes to gain experience after placing second at sections. Ibrahim will have to cut a few minutes and Lokkesemoe will have to jump a few inches farther than ever before to make the finals. The name missing is Lee Bares, the two-time state champion who set a state record (15-9) in the pole vault in May. At the Section 1AA meet on May 30, vaulters can choose how high they want to start in the first round. Bares missed all three of his attempts in the first round. “It is a very unfortunate thing that happened,” head coach Jon Gilmer said. “He simply came in at a height he always has and he did not clear the bar on his three attempts. This happens to a lot of pole vaulters in their careers, it just was not his day.” Overall the Cougars placed eighth, which Gilmer was happy with considering the way the season transpired. “We have had our struggles this year with the weather and developing in the various events,” Gilmer said. “We are now starting to develop. I wish we had a few more weeks with the nice weather. But we will have to wait for next year. Given the weather this year, we had a good year.” South’s Courtney Backstrom kicked one in, but North’s Madsen and Waagbo answered back to put the game out of reach.

Boys team falls in section final The Lakeville North boys lacrosse team made lost in the Seciton 1 finals on Tuesday to Rochester Mayo 10-7. It was the furthest any Lakeville team has ever gone in lacrosse playoffs. In the semifinals, Lakeville North got some revenge against Lakeville South winning 17-7.

MEET DINAH!

Dinah is a snazzy girl all dressed up in a tux and has incredibly unique black and white spotted feet that look like she is wearing “spats”. Last Hope acquired Dinah after a rough start in life. Abandoned, her family lost their home and left her behind. To add insult to injury, she lost part of an ear to frostbite before being picked up by animal impound where she was caged for 2 months! Dinah was passed over by rescues taking cats from impound because she appeared distant and aloof. Our president took mercy on her and gave her a chance and we are so glad! Dinah’s hard knocks in life only made her “appear” that way as she has opened up and is quite the social butterfly. She greets you at the door and likes to chatter about her day. She will go to the closet where her wand is if she wants to play and to her food dish if she’d like to eat. If she is in the mood she will jump up on the sofa for pets and snuggles! If none of these activities strike her fancy, she loves to be in the room with you and “ hang out.” She has been vet checked and is completely healthy and up to date on all her vaccinations. She is spayed and FeLV negative. She is excellent with her scratching post and litter box. Adoption Fee $50. For more information contact her foster mom Judy at 952-492-2331 or weidtje@gmail.com To see other cats and dogs available through Last Hope please visit www.last-hope.org or attend one of our adoption days, Saturdays from 11-3 at Apple Valley Petco, Burnsville Petco, or Eagan Petsmart.

SUN THISWEEK - Lakeville June 7, 2013 21A

Thisweekend For latest role, local performer’s lips are sealed Rosemount grad featured in Off Leash Area’s ‘Psst!’ June 21-23 by Andrew Miller SUN THISWEEK DAKOTA COUNTY TRIBUNE

Having no lines of dialogue in Off Leash Area’s production of “Psst!” isn’t a sign that Jesse Schmitz-Boyd has a small role. Filled with mask work, dancing, stilts and shadow puppets, the show, based on the work of Norwegian graphic novelist Jason, isn’t big on chitchat. “There is exactly one word that gets spoken, and it’s ‘psst,’ ” SchmitzBoyd said of the production, which runs June 2123 at the Cowles Center in Minneapolis.

“Psst!,” Schmitz-Boyd is pulling double duty. The first half of the show is set in a factory, and he plays an eagle dressed like an accountant.
