Concussions and fall sports: How to protect young athletes Movers and Shakers BY KURT BELK Minnesota high school students suffered nearly 3,000 sports-related concussions during the 2013-14 school year, according to estimates based on voluntary reports to the Minnesota Department of Health by schools in the Twin Cities. While the concussions range from mild to severe, the point is that each one is considered a brain injury and that’s serious business. As local football, soccer and cross country teams begin practice and games, it is important for athletes, parents and coaches know basic and important information about concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Sometimes the signs of a concussion or TBI are obvious; the patient is unconscious or acting “out of it”. But signs and symptoms are not always immediate. That’s why it is so important to understand the main causes and symptoms of concussions and brain injuries which are often more serious than just a “bump on the head”. Immediately following a TBI, two things happen. First the brain tissue reacts to the trauma with biochemical and physiological responses to brain cells that have been damaged or even destroyed. The second and more commonly known reaction is the loss of consciousness which can last minutes, hours or even longer. Other symptoms of a concussion or brain injury include short or long term changes in thinking, sensation, language and emotion. Here are some of the physical symptoms a young athlete
may experience if he or she has recently ently suffered a concussion or TBI: • Headache or “pressure” in head d • Nausea or vomiting • Balance problems or dizziness • Fatigue or feeling tired • Blurry or double vision • Sensitivity to light or noise • Numbness or tingling • Does not “feel right” For adults, here are short and longer-term nger-term symptoms you might notice in an athlete who o has suffered a concussion or TBI: • Appears dazed or stunned • Is confused about events • Answers questions slowly • Repeats questions • Can’t recall events prior to the hit, t, bump, or fall • Loses consciousness (even briefl fly) • Shows behavior or personality changes • Forgets class schedule or assignments nments The most important thing to know ow if you or a loved one has sustained a blow to the he head is to seek medical attention, especially if you are noticing any symptoms out of the ordinary. The key to recovering from even less severe head trauma is rest. For young athletes sustaining a concussion, it is important to stop play and sit it out, immediately. Your our brain needs time to properly heal, so rest is necessary. y. Athletes and children should be closely monitored by coaches aches upon resuming play. Prevention is key to protecting yourself from serious head injuries. When necessary, wear a helmet elmet especially in sports like football and while up at bat forr softball or baseball. These are instances when a tackle or pitch h can cause irreversible damage to an athlete who isn’t wearing aring head protection. Keep in mind, repeat concussions ns cause cumulative effects on the brain. Successive concussions ns can have devastating consequences, including brain swelling, lling, permanent brain
damage, long-term disabilities, or even death. — Kurt Belk is ER physician and medical director of The Urgency Room in Vadnais Heights.

Gene Johnson About the town
A Minnesota Tradition THERE ARE VERY few Minnesota State Fairs that I have missed from the time I was a toddler. Most enjoyable for Kathy and I is working at the Newspaper Museum, now for the third year, located in the front of the 4-H Building on what used to be called Machinery Hill. The Fair is known as the Minnesota Get-together, but it might be better named the Minnesota Eattogether. The variety of foods, on a stick or not, seems to be the biggest attraction for the 1.7 plus million people who attend annually. This year we spent three half-day shifts explaining the 1930s hot metal process of producing a newspaper. People of all ages continue to be fascinated, and especially those who have had someone in the family working with hot type or today are on a newspaper or in a commercial printing plant. Mark and Deb Erickson of Floral Drive in White Bear Lake came by to say hello. They have lived in White Bear Lake for 20 years and were complimentary of the museum. Paul Chapin of Bald Eagle and his friend Carol Kepple of Albert Lea came by to say hello. Paul is a pilot for American Airlines and had a lot of questions about the old process of printing a newspaper. Jeannie Inglehart stopped by to make newspaper hats out of newsprint. She loves to do this for their own parties and had this to say, “First Amendment rights are our primary concern. Thanks for the education. I moved to White Bear Lake in April.” Dick and Sally Parenteau, our neighbors, came by the museum with two grandsons, Nick and Vinny. Sometimes we have to be away from White Bear Lake to greet neighbors. Mary Pat Laboda and Bob Hogoboom from Stillwater came by to say hello. Bob grew up in White Bear Lake and was a ’66 graduate. Two gentlemen came by, Bill and John, but I missed their last names. Bill especially wanted to say thank you for sending the White Bear Press while he served in Vietnam from 1969 through 1970. Another fellow by the name of John came by to say thank you to the new owner of the apartments on the northwest corner of County Road E and Bellaire Avenue. Now that they are cleaned up, there are far fewer problems in the neighborhood and fewer police cars. Bob and Joy Wilson of Lino Lakes have purchased a home on Cook Street in White Bear Lake and are currently fixing it up so they can move in. Jim and Kay Anderson from Marine on St. Croix came by to say hello. Kay was a reporter for the Country Messenger in Scandia from 1974 to 1977. They live next door to mutual friends, the Chuck Arnesons. Dean and Mary Shawbold stopped in to say hello. Dean and I served on the White Bear Lake Area Educational Foundation board together. It’s also a reminder of the fall fundraiser for the Foundation on October 23rd at the White Bear Yacht Club. – Gene Johnson is publisher emeritus of Press Publications.
Tax levy set to rise 6 percent; riverside trees a go BY LORETTA HARDING Contributing Writer
STILLWATER — Some vocal Stillwater residents won't be hugging new trees along the river in Lowell Park, nor will they likely hug the Stillwater City Council since its Sept. 15 decision to plant a dozen trees near the river in Lowell Park Some expressed consternation at even one tree spoiling the rare panoramic view of the river, while council and city staff offered up a number of flexible solutions. "It's just a plan; tree location can change," responded City Engineer Shawn Sanders. A flood could come and take them away next spring anyway,” added Mayor Ted Kozlowski. Several months ago, a volunteer came forward to design a tree plan for the north Lowell Park area and the newly built trail from Mulberry to Laurel streets. The plan originally included 21 red buds along the trail, 10 red maples in the circle to the east of Mulberry, four northern pin oaks in Mulberry Point and nine swamp white oaks in the park from Mulberry to Myrtle. In the interest of healthy spacing, city staff deleted four maple trees. Because the Public Works Department wants to add more storm sewer to eliminate a ditch, only 11 of the red buds will now be planted. The trees are native to the area and were chosen for their ability to survive in compacted soils, which are quite often wet or underwater in the spring according to Sanders. Bailey Nurseries in Newport was low bidder to provide trees for $3,957, and volunteers will do the planting. The city may
receive a $745 donation from an area resident. The city already budgeted $10,000 for the Lowell Park plan from capital outlay. In the meantime, some have complained the new trees will affect views of the river and summer fireworks. Three of the four planned tree varieties are taller than 50 feet; only the red buds grow to 25 feet or shorter. Besides blocking picturesque views to and from the river, the opposition said shade provided will only be a factor for some 20 days of the year and will mostly be cast onto the river. In addition, the oaks will drop acorns all over, one objector said. Visitors will have to walk the levy to see the river and will spend less time in the shops, another advised. Those in favor say the trees will add form, structure and color to the area, soaking up wet ground and filtering sediment that might otherwise enter the river. They'll serve as excellent pollinators, a beekeeping resident said. The trees are set to be planted Sept. 19 so they can take root before winter and have a better chance of survival, said Councilman Mike Polehna. "But let's not err on the side of reducing views," Kozlowski directed city staff. "Less is more."
IN OTHER ACTION SEPT. 14, THE COUNCIL: •By votes of 3-2 (Polehna and Weidner opposed), adopted a proposed 2016 tax levy of $12.03 million (an increase of $690,914 or 6.09 percent from 2015) along with the proposed 2016 budget. The 2016 Truth-in-Taxation meeting was set for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 1.
•Supported an application for a temporary classification of body worn camera data until the State Legislature establishes a law governing the data. Currently data retrieved from body cameras is considered public information. •Authorized a $58,607 grant application from the Minnesota Amateur Sport Commission Mighty Ducks Grant Program to improve indoor air quality of the St. Croix Valley Recreation Center, with matching city funds budgeted through Capital Improvement. •Approved a two-year labor agreement with the Stillwater Firefighters Association calling for 3 percent wage increases both years. •After a public hearing, adopted the new Master Trails Plan. •By a vote of 3-1 (Polehna opposed and Weidner abstaining) adopted a special use permit for the new shooting gallery at 2159 Curve Crest Boulevard and denied a variance for the size of the shooting lanes. •Approved the final plat and development agreement for Browns Creek Cove, a 15-lot single-family residential development at Neal Avenue N. and McKusick Road N. •Purchased the 14-acre Palmer property at the southeast corner of Highway 96 and Manning Avenue to create a public park and protect a stretch of Browns Creek and abutting wetlands. In 2014 Washington County committed $84,000 in Land and Water Legacy funds toward 42 percent of the purchase price. The city will pay the $116,000 balance and receive the deed. The council next meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 6 at City Hall.
Forest Lake levy projects median-home 1.6 tax increase
CARTER JOHNSON Publisher
WADE WEBER CEO
BY MICHELLE MIRON Editor
FOREST LAKE — The median-value property owner in Forest Lake will will see a 1.6 percent hike in 2016 property taxes if the city stays with preliminary budget plans. By a 4-1 vote Monday, the City Council approved a tentative balanced budget of $9.06 million and maximum levy of $8.96 million, with a truth-in-taxation hearing open for public comment on Dec. 7. Revenues are expected to be 4.2 percent higher than in 2015, with expenditures up 3.9 percent. Seeing the biggest increase in expenses would be public works (up 10.8 percent) and general government (up 7.1 percent). Public safety expenses are expected to rise 1.5 percent; after public input, the council decided over the summer not to cut two staff police officers at a cost of about $200,000. The fund balance is projected to sit at $5.04 million by the end of 2017. The sole dissenting vote was by Councilman Mike Freer, who pointed to earlier budget discussions about producing a median-value tax impact increase of only .7 percent. “I'm absolutely adamant that (the levy) is going to be reduced by December,” Freer said. “I don't want to get to November and only have had one discussion.” The rest of the council agreed to continue discussion, but City Administrator Aaron Parrish noted that shooting for a 1.6 percent median increase allows for more budgetary options. “This just gives $75,000 of flexibility,” he said. “We're setting the upper level of the levy now, but can certainly bring it back down between now
and December.” Councilman Ben Winnick said he's OK with the 1.6 percent hike. “I think .7 just takes away too much flexibility … things are going to happen in a city this size,” he said. “You need to keep in mind we're going to have more debt coming on, and I think this is a good way to ease into that. (He noted he was referring to upcoming city debt related to the City Center project). Freer argued back that “flexibility means less dollars in their (taxpayers') pocket.” In other news from Monday, the council unanimously approved the promotion of Interim Fire Chief Al Newman to permanent chief. The Joint Powers Fire Board that represents fire personnel from Forest Lake, Wyoming and Columbus also issued a unanimous recommendation. “He's been doing a great job,” said Parrish. “It's my pleasure to recognize Al's great efforts.” Newman, the city's former deputy chief, was named interim chief in April soon after the retirement of Chief Gary Sigfrinius. “This is absolutely the right decision for the department as a whole,” said Freer. “We've heard nothing but positive comments about Al. I feel we've come a long way with openness and transparency with the fire board, and the board seems much happier with what's occurring.” Mayor Stev Stegner also said he'd received positive feedback. “We appreciate you being out in the community and creating a positive relationship out there,” he told Newman.
