The Anoka County Board has reached an agreement on how to proceed in the search for a new county administrator. At its April 9 meeting, the board unanimously approved a resolution (Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah abstained) that defines the process to replace retiring County Administrator Jerry Soma, who will retire May 1 after being in the position for eight years. “I would like to point out that this is a really big deal for Anoka County. There has not been a hiring process in place for county administrator since the 1980s, so in my opinion this is real progress,” said Commissioner Mandy Meisner, who represents District 4. “I truly want to find the best person for this job.” After three separate motions and the inability of the board members in attendance at the
March 26 meeting to reach an agreement (Sivarajah was absent), District 1 Commissioner Matt Look initiated a workshop to discuss the topic further on April 2. (Sivarajah did not attend.) “The workshop was important for consensus reasons. We had some disagreements on this issue, and that is fair. Everyone can have their opinion, but in the workshop we could come to that consensus and we did, in fact, come to a consensus,” Look explained. “All six members didn't get everything they wanted, but they didn't lose everything either. There was some gain and some loss but ultimately at the end of the day we came to an agreement where we could all feel comfortable moving forward ... I am very happy with the outcome.” The resolution states: The employee relations department will be responsible SEE COUNTY BOARD, PAGE 13
Quilters bring out soft side of law enforcement BY SHANNON GRANHOLM EDITOR
For many years, a group of quilters has gathered on the second and fourth Tuesday morning of the month at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Circle Pines to work on their own personal projects. Last fall, the group decided they wanted to put their creative minds together to do something for the community. The group makes stuffed puppies and blankets to be given out to children who may need something soft to snuggle with. Patricia Clearance,
chaplain of the Lexington Fire Department (LFD), keeps the stuffed puppies and blankets in her car so that if she needs them on a call, they are close by. Lino Lakes resident Linda Ramnarine said she got the pattern for the stuffed dogs over 35 years ago. “I started making them for my kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, friends and their kids,” she explained. For many years she stopped making them, until last year when she thought they would be a good addition to St. Mark's Holiday Bazaar in November.
“One of our quilters got the idea that we needed to do a project for the community,” Ramnarine explained. “The puppies (and blankets) really took off after the bazaar.” She said the effort continued to gain traction while she was enjoying the warm weather in Arizona over the winter. “It really blossomed,” she said. “The hope is to bring children comfort in times of sadness or tragedy.” Clearance has already given out a couple of puppies and blankets. “I was at a funeral,

Local politician and community servant passes away Margaret Langfeld, long time elected official and community activist, passed away at the age of 76 on April 6 surrounded by her husband and family after a bout with melanoma. Langfeld grew up on a farm in Darwin, Minnesota and married her high school sweetheart Jim Langfeld in 1963. In 1970 they moved their four young children to a new home in Blaine’s Donnay Northwood development and lived in city for the rest of their life together. After years of community service with the League of Women Votes, Blaine’s Blazin’ Fourth, Blaine DFL and the Church of Saint Timothy, among many other volunteer positions, she decided to run for Blaine City Council when the home developer of her neighborhood refused to complete a neighborhood park for the area children. “I caught the bug to serve the public early in life,” said Langfeld years ago. Langfeld’s children recall working on local campaigns, helping people of all ages and circumstances in the city and being dragged around from
one house to the next. “I remember a woman who had just emigrated from Jamaica and lived a few blocks away,” recalled her son Joe Langfeld. “It was election day and we stopped by to help her with some need.” As Langfeld moved to the county board in the early 1980s and served on many state-wide committees, children and then grandchild could often be seen coloring or reading under a desk while meetings commenced. “She was the kind of woman that allowed for her family life to flow through her work life. She was a pioneer for women in politics and a role model for women of faith,” Joe said. First elected to the Blaine City Council in 1976, she went on to chair the Anoka County Board of Commissioners. She was the fi rst female Blaine City Council member, joined with Natalie HaasStephens as one of the fi rst two women on the Anoka County Board of Commissioners and became fi rst woman chair of the Anoka County Board. She was a co-founder of Alexandra House, Anoka County Children

CIRCLE PINES CITY COUNCIL NOTES The Circle Pines City Council took the following action at its April 9 meeting: • Heard from Mayor Dave Bartholomay, who reminded residents that Recycling Day will be from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 27. • Announced that the design for the new City Hall playground has been selected. City Administrator Patrick Antonen said the playground replacement will be completed this summer along with some other upgrades to City Hall, such as the parking lot and lighting, in conjunction with the Centennial Library branch expansion.
• Approved the consent agenda, which included March 26 meeting minutes, licenses, and general fund, police and fi re disbursements. • Discussed construction on I-35W. A representative from MnDOT was scheduled to give a presentation on the project to the council but did not appear. Antonen said he was hopeful MnDOT would reschedule. • Approved policy 65, which establishes small cell wireless facility standards. Antonen explained the Federal Communications Commission approved an order addressing the
deployment of small cell wireless facilities, which impacts city rights of way. Under the order, cities must adopt and publish small cell aesthetic standards for small cell wireless facilities by April 15 to have the ability to impose aesthetic standards. Antonen said the council will review a much more comprehensive ordinance on the topic at a future meeting. Councilman Matt Percy said, “I am glad we are doing this now; it is really timely ... It is coming a lot faster than people realize, so it is good we are getting in front of this now.” • Presented information about
the city's Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census. See this week's issue of the Quad Community Press for the full story. • Approved a resolution in support of a partnership between the city and the U.S. Census Bureau and the state of Minnesota. The resolution states the partnership will: ° Support the goals and ideals for the 2020 Census and will disseminate 2020 Census information. ° Encourage all county residents to participate in events and initiatives that will raise the overall awareness of the 2020 Census and increase
participation. ° Provide Census advocates to speak to county and community organizations. ° Support census takers as they help Anoka County complete an accurate count. ° Strive to achieve a complete and accurate count of all persons within the city's borders. The City Council next meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at City Hall. Shannon Granholm
LEXINGTON CITY COUNCIL NOTES The Lexington City Council took the following action at its meeting on April 4: • Approved the consent agenda, which included council meeting minutes from March 21, claims and bills dealing with payroll, general fund and liquor payment, credit card payments and Centennial Lakes Police Department payment. • Approved the preparation of plans and specifications on improvements to Jackson Avenue, which is located between Restwood Road and Woodland Road. The improvements will include surface milling, placement of bituminous overlay and street repairs as needed. The costs of the improvements would likely be funded (in part) by benefiting property owners.
• Approved an application for an exempt gambling permit for the nonprofit City Heat Charities annual benefit ride June 2, which will stop at Cowboy’s Saloon. This year’s ride will benefit Mary Goodsell, who is fighting Stage 4 lung cancer. • Directed the Centennial Little League to draft an official document of its plans for Memorial Park to further the discussion of creating a budget for the renovations. The next City Council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 18, at City Hall. Sarah Knieff

Bunny, human suits
still remember when one of my childhood friends made a big announcement: she no longer believed Santa Claus was real but she still believed in the Easter Bunny. While her thinking seemed illogical to me, I tried to understand where she was coming from. As for me, I never remembered believing Santa Claus was anything but a fun person in a suit. My theory about the Easter Bunny was built off my theory of Santa Claus. But for my friend, who had believed the Santa Claus story for years until she realized Santa Claus looked, sounded and acted differently at the mall every year, the Easter Bunny offered a more believable alternative. The Story Easter Bunny was rather elusive in the ‘90s. He didn’t show up at Chaser many community Easter egg hunts Sara Marie Moore like he does today. A child couldn’t see the Easter Bunny appears to be a person in a suit, so it could make sense the mysterious bunny ﬁ lled the ﬁelds overnight with plastic chicken eggs. I didn’t tell my friend but I was still convinced that the Easter Bunny was also a person in a suit. This week, millions of people around the world will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, a man who was cruciﬁed about 2,000 years ago for claiming to be God in human form. The report of his resurrection is what has caused millions of people around the world to believe his claims to be God and build their lives around his teachings recorded by four ﬁrst-century reporters: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Over the centuries, several theories have surfaced to try to refute the reporting of Jesus’ resurrection, according to the “Handbook of Christian Apologetics” by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli. First, some people have theorized that Jesus did not really die on the cross but that he was simply revived after resting in the tomb. However, John reported that blood and water came from Jesus’ heart when it was pierced by those checking to make sure he was dead. Death by asphyxiation or hypovolemic shock would cause water to build up around the heart. Others say perhaps the disciples hallucinated that they saw Jesus after he died. However, people touched Jesus after he rose from the dead. He was consistent in his appearance and personality. He appeared to multiple individuals and groups for over a month. Group hallucinations are rare. Luke reported about 500 people saw Jesus at once after he was resurrected. When the Apostle Paul was spreading the report of the resurrection further west, he noted that many of these 500 were still alive, available for questioning. Another argument against the resurrection is that Jesus’ followers and the reporters created a conspiracy. It is not very plausible such a conspiracy could have been perpetrated considering how difﬁcult it would have been to take Jesus’ body from a guarded tomb and destroy the evidence so quickly. Conspiracies are usually found out, especially when a group has adversaries. It is doubtful that 3,000 people in the area would have become Christians within a couple of months if the resurrection had been made up. That a man named Jesus rose from the dead in the Middle East about 2,000 years ago is not really a disputed fact of history. Who you think he was, how and why he rose from the dead and what it means for your life is a matter of personal decision and faith. As for me, I still believe He was God in a human suit. If those reporters got the resurrection right, I believe they quoted Him accurately, too. Sara Marie Moore is editor of the Shoreview Press. She can be reached at 651-407-1235 or email@example.com.

We need to unify around education
grew up in a more rural part of the Hopkins School District in the 50s and 60s. I attended several years at Burwell Elementary School in an area called Minnetonka Mills. As a student in Ms. Hefferin’s ﬁ fth grade class, I remember distinctly how the room looked, particularly the evening I had to write “I will obey the teacher” across all the blackboards that covered three sides of the room. I remember the wooden desks, Movers & and the grade which Shakers book, all of students Jan Kreminski were anxious to see, and the cloth-covered audio speaker providing announcements in a high corner of the room. That room today could still be built, and here in the Centennial School District, we have done so, many times. But now, the audio speaker is likely a digital sound system
mounted in the ceiling. Instead of blackboards, worn grade books and reel-to-reel ﬁ lm projectors, digital information is stored in the Cloud and displayed and shared on computers and phones. All these new items are not in the memory of my ﬁ fth grade room. These items add many thousands of dollars in cost to every room at Centennial and other school districts. And it doesn’t even include the connectedness to these classrooms for updated ﬁber and network wiring, security systems, software licenses, routers and Wi-ﬁ , and a secure Cloud upon which to store data. The Centennial Area Education Foundation (CAEF) aspires to ﬁ ll many funding needs to support education, but at present, is only able to fund about 25% of the grant requests it receives. Many of the good programs that support our children that submit grant requests speciﬁcally ask for help with technology support. Teachers and others have innovative ideas for important programs to give our children
the start they need today in this world, but lack the technology resources to enable them to happen. Peggy Noonan, a respected op-ed writer for the Wall Street Journal, pointed out two weeks ago that as Americans, we are best when we can unify around some common event. We can throw aside small differences to achieve an outcome that will beneﬁt and help us all to power ahead. The CAEF remains committed now and for years to come to help our community support education. Many of you already dedicate your own time and resources to our schools and other community organizations to this end. As a fellow community member, I thank you. We cannot, and should not, go back to the school in my memories, because our children are more precious than gold and they deserve our best. Jan Kreminski is the president of the Centennial Area Education Foundation.

ome of you reading this column, the fi rst of a monthly series from faith leaders in our area, are not part of a faith community. Others are. As I pastor, I write from the perspective of an adherent of the Christian faith, but I hope what I have to say will â€œtranslateâ€? to others as well. At Our Saviorâ€™s Lutheran Church in Circle Pines, where I am one of the pastors, we have an identity statement: â€œCreated for relationship with God, all people everywhere and creation itself.â€? In 2019, Easter and Earth Day fall on consecutive days, April 21 and 22. That juxtaposition highlights the interconnectedness of those three areas of relationship in our identity statement, and it reminds us that God is not a â€œleft behinder.â€? And what does that mean? It means that in raising Jesus from the dead, God was not rescuing Jesus from creation. Jesusâ€™ resurrection is Godâ€™s recommitment to creation in its entirety,
people included. On Easter Sunday, some of us will be celebrating Jesusâ€™ resurrection and Godâ€™s redemption of and recommitment to Godâ€™s creation. The following day, on Earth Day, others will be celebrating the Paster beauty and the inherent Ponderings value of the world we all call home. Those Steve Sylvester two celebrations share, quite literally, common ground. I wish all of you, children of God, children of the earth, meaningful celebrations and a blessed spring.

Going, going, gone: Cougars win opener on walkoff homer BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR
After averaging a home run a game in 2018, the Centennial Cougars won their 2019 opener by going deep again. Abby Lohse crushed a line drive over the fence in right-center, with one out in the last of the seventh, to beat Osseo 3-2 on Tuesday, April 9. It was the first varsity hit for the sophomore outfielder. Alyssa Montero pitched a three-hitter with 11 strikeouts for the win, with both runs unearned as the Cougars
made errors on base running plays. She out-dueled Sy’rai Trice, who pitched well for Osseo. Centennial placed third in the state last year, finishing 22-5 with 28 home runs in 27 games. Three of five allconference players returned, including MVP and top slugger Montero. Centennial’s Madeline Fidler tied the game 2-2 in the fifth when she singled, stole second and took third and home with aggressive base running and Osseo errors.

Minnesota Senate Leaders: End Elder Abuse Now Minnesota is the only state in the country that does not require assisted living facilities to be licensed. Reports of elder abuse, uncovered over two years ago, continue—and frail seniors remain at risk. AARP urges you to protect Minnesota’s frail seniors by passing strong and sufficiently funded legislation this session that will require assisted living facilities to be licensed—and will stop these facilities from discharging seniors without adequate notice or cause, retaliating against seniors and their families, and ongoing deceptive marketing practices. It’s time for a bipartisan solution. Our seniors can’t wait.

ST. MARK’S QUILTERS: Bring snuggles and hugs in times of tragedy FROM PAGE 1
and the little boy was having a really tough time, so I went out to the car and grabbed a puppy and blanket for him. He just hung on to it,” she recalled. The puppies and blankets help Clearance provide some comfort. “That is really one of the primary responsibilities that I do, is provide some comfort care, whether it is listening or if they want prayer ... If they are hurting or crying, I can give them something to focus their attention on, something they can love up in time of tragedy,” she said. “I do want to reach out more to the community rather than just as the chaplain going out on recovery calls.” In addition to LFD, the stuffed puppies and blankets are also given to those in need who come into contact with the Centennial Fire District and Centennial Lakes Police Department. Individuals from all three organizations showed up to the quilter group's recent get-together April 9 to do their part. Firefighters and officers helped the quilters at various stations. Those stations included admitting — when the pups get ready to be stuffed; transplant — when the dogs are filled with stuffing; sutures — when the dogs are stitched up after being stuffed; mating — when the dogs are paired with a matching blanket; and, finally, recovery — when both the pups and the humans take some time to rest and enjoy a cookie. Editor Shannon Granholm can be reached at 651-407-1227 or email@example.com.

The training focuses on lifesaving measures (first aid and CPR) in dealing domestic animals. In a Facebook post, LFD reminded residents, “Our pets are very important to us and now we have the training and toys to help. However, if your house is ever on fire, once you’re out, do not go back inside for your pets; let us do that when we get there.”

The department will then post the position announcement for 10 business days, screen applications and select those that best meet the minimum and preferred qualifications. Regular county employees, current county commissioners, elected officials with countywide jurisdiction and former county employees who have worked for the county within the last five years (and left in good standing) are eligible to apply for the position. A subcommittee of three county board members including County Board Vice Chair Scott Schulte (District 7), Management Committee Chair Robyn West (District 3) and Commissioner Mike Gamache (District 5) will interview the qualified candidates and make a recommendation to the county board regarding the appointment. Meisner said although the board was able to come to an agreement, there were a few things she advocated for the process that did not make it into the final resolution. “I do believe the best way to find qualified candidates is an external search.

in our cities and our private sectors that should be considered,” she said. “My colleagues felt strongly that an internal process will continue to be the best process in place.” Look said one of the reasons he wanted to see the search remain internal is so it doesn't disrupt Anoka County's culture. “For those of us who have worked in other political realms and seen other political cultures, I will put Anoka County culture above every other culture that I have ever been in ... The culture we have here is exceptional,” he said. “It is that culture that I want to try to preserve, and when you bring people in from the outside you risk losing that. We do have qualified talent internally and we should be tapping that resource long before we take that risk and go externally.” Additionally, Meisner said she wanted to see all six commissioners be a part of the interview process, rather than only three on the subcommittee. “I did strongly advocate for all county commissioners to be a part of the interview process. The county administrator position is a unique and important position and has been the exception to the rule so far in every other way,”
she said. “Simply, this should be an equal opportunity for all six commissioners to decide who we think the best person for the job is.” Schulte said, “It is not the measure of the board whether you disagree or have different thoughts. When there is a separation as there was at the previous board meeting, the measure is how you get past that, how you compromise, how you come to a conclusion and how you work together in subsequent years. That is the measure of character, the measure of how a board functions. I think we are strong from that capacity and I think we will come back from this and be stronger and better than ever.” Gamache said he guesses the interviews will take place the last week of April or first week of May. “The committee will bring a suggestion (or suggestions) to the full board and the full board will make the final decision. Jerry has agreed to stay on into May, so we should have someone hired before Memorial Day,” he said. Editor Shannon Granholm can be reached at 651-407-1227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
LINO LAKES CITY COUNCIL NOTES The Lino Lakes City Council took the following action at its April 8 meeting: • Recognized Lino Lakes Public Safety Department volunteers for five and 10 years of service including (five years) Sam Marsh (Explorer) and Jane Muske (trail watch); (10 years) Mary Lou Anderson (administration), Dave Kircher (trail watch), and CERT members Craig Aardahl, Jim Dorner, Bill Juergens, Al Mickelson, Ruth Mickelson, Sheila Peterson, Gordon Schiller, Ray Culp, Russ Ellenwood, Melissa Miller and Bryan Olson. • Approved the consent agenda, which included a peddler license for Big Bell Ice Cream Inc., out of Fridley. • Approved a resolution updating Section 6.5 of the city's personnel policy. The change inserts a time limit of 90 days for paying out the difference between workers compensation and employee wages. • Authorized the donation of wellness equipment to North Memorial Ambulance's Forest Lake station. Public Safety Director John Swenson explained in August 2016, Snap Fitness donated wellness/exercise equipment (treadmill and arc trainer) to the department for Fire Station No. 1. Due to the upcoming remodel at the station, there is no longer room for the equipment there. • Accepted bids and awarded a construction contract for Woods Edge Park. Seven bids were received, and the contract was awarded the low bidder, Dunaway Construction, of Columbus, for $119,315. The project will be funded through the dedicated parks fund. Public Services Director Rick DeGardner said the construction should be completed by the end of June. • Held the first reading of an ordinance rezoning property from general business (GB) to planned unit development (PUD) and approved a PUD development stage plan/ preliminary plat. The applicant, Lyngblomsten, has submitted a land use application for rezoning, PUD development stage plan, preliminary plat and site plan review for the development of a senior living community, future restaurant and commercial building located in the northwest quadrant of Hodgson Road and County Road J. Per the proposed 2040 Comprehensive Plan, the site is guided Signature Gateway. The parcels would be rezoned to PUD in order to implement the master plan for the corner, which covers approximately 60 acres of land on both the west and east sides of Hodgson Road. It assumed that approximately half of the 60-acre area would develop with residential uses at approximately 10 units per acre overall. The Comp Plan identifies a density range from 8 to 15 units per acre for the Mixed Use District portion. • Held the second reading of an

ordinance amending City Code Section 1007 to allow for multiple buildings on a single parcel in Commercial, Industrial and Public/Semi Public Zoning Districts. Community Development Director Michael Grochala explained current city ordinance only allows for one principal building per lot, and in commercial and industrial zoning districts the size of accessory buildings is limited to 400 square feet. Therefore, any expansion project, which requires an additional building in excess of 400 square feet, would require approval of a planned unit development (PUD). Grochala said for a single-use site, approval for multiple buildings would be more appropriately handled through a conditional use permit (CUP). The ordinance was approved. • Held the second reading of an ordinance amending City Code Section 1007 to allow for retaining walls greater than 42 inches height. Grochala said currently the city requires a zoning permit for the construction of retaining walls within platted areas of the city and prohibits walls over 48 inches. The current state building code has provisions for walls taller than 48 inches. The amendment allows walls up to 48 inches in height, but a zoning permit would still be required. The ordinance was approved. • Accepted bids, awarded a construction contract and approved a construction services contract for the 2019 mill and overlay project. The project includes Sherman Lake Road, Merganser Court, Sherman Lake Court, Sherman Lake Circle, Fire Station No.1 parking lot, Deerwood Lane (Fox Road to the south cul-du-sac) and Pheasant Hills Drive. Seven bids were received for the project. The low bidder was North Valley Inc. for $546,810. WSB will complete construction services for $39,028. The project will be funded through the pavement management fund and construction is scheduled for completion by October.
The Lino Lakes City Council accepted bids and awarded a construction contract for $119,315 to Dunaway Construction for Woods Edge Park at its April 8 meeting.
The next City Council meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, at City Hall. There will also be a work session
immediately beforehand at 6 p.m. in the Community Room. Shannon Granholm
