DNR files appeal in lake lawsuit case BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR


Self-propelled angling apparatus Above: Tom Morris paddles his hand-built Wood Duck kayak out onto White Bear Lake to try his luck during the Minnesota Fishing Opener Saturday, May 12. At right: A pair of mallards swim close to shore. Fishing reports were mixed and DNR officials stationed at the lake for aquatic invasive species inspections and education said that the cold water might have slowed the fishing down this year.

ST. PAUL — It was not a question of if, but when, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) would file an appeal over the lake level lawsuit. That action came late Friday afternoon. In documents filed May 11 by the office of the attorney general, the DNR and its commissioner are appealing six specific actions to the Court of Appeals: 1) the district court order filed Aug. 30, 2017; 2) the court’s judgment of Oct. 4, 2017; 3) the court’s order of March 29, 2018, denying the DNR’s motion to amend the August order and October judgment; 4) the court order of March 29, 2018, denying a motion to stay enforcement of its judgment pending appeal; 5) the court order of Sept. 11, 2013 denying the DNR’s motion to dismiss; and 6) the court’s order of Aug. 29, 2014, denying the DNR motion for summary judgment. A court order denying attorneys’ fees April 23, 2018 is not being appealed. The case, which dates back to 2012, involves the plaintiff, the White Bear Lake Restoration Association, and the defending DNR. Intervenors include the lake homeowners’ association on the side of the plaintiff and the city and township of White Bear Lake on the side of the DNR. The plaintiffs allege that groundwater pumping by municipalities for public water supply near White Bear Lake is adversely affecting its elevation. They sued the DNR asking for various injunctive SEE APPEAL, PAGE 9A

Hanifl Performing Arts Center: Faces behind the name BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

The marquee on the city’s new performing arts center includes the surname Hanifl, after the Chicago-based foundation that bestowed $2.75 million to the theater’s capital campaign, thus securing naming rights. So who are the Hanifls? Their names are Paul and Suzanne Hanifl, a socially and environmentally conscious couple now living in North Oaks who believe their business success should be shared. The two met on a blind date in Frederick, Maryland. Paul had graduated from the University of Wisconsin as a chemical engineer and was promptly drafted into the U.S. Army. He happened to be based in Frederick

where Suzanne was attending Hood College. Their upbringing was starkly different. Paul was one of six kids who grew up on the Mississippi River in LaCrosse, Wisconsin; Suzanne spent her formative years in northern India, attending missionary school in the foothills of the Himalayas. Both have master’s degrees. Paul has an MBA from Northeastern University in Boston and Suzanne a master’s in home economics and child development. The couple were living in Rhode Island in 1978 when Paul was offered a position as vice president of business development with Sage Products Inc., a health care product manufacturer outside Chicago. He holds dozens of patents. SEE HANIFL, PAGE 8A

Lake trail makes list in Senate bonding bill BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR


Loon Chronicles III: Mother’s Day What a morning! We welcomed back two pairs of Loons on the water and another pair flying overhead, all looking for potential nesting sites in increasingly limited territory. Many calls and exchanges filled the air. The energy and tension were palpable as all tried to grab safe spots to build or steal nests. With the lake only open for a week, everyone is running behind. The Canada Geese appear to have claimed the most and best real estate, leaving the more treacherous locations for others. The small islands in Ordway Bay are underwater and not a viable option for the Loons. We spotted one pair of Loons by the Yacht Club. They appeared oblivious to all around them as they soaked in the sun, preened, and fished together. Back in the War Zone, on the other side of the lake, we spotted the same pair of Loons that we followed last summer. We were hoping that they would select a safer section of the lake to start their next family. Unfortunately, they appeared fixed on the same dangerous nesting site that they selected last year. The Eagle was never out of sight and paid close attention to all of the mothers at work. The next few weeks will be critical.

ST. PAUL — Good news on the Lake Links front: The Senate bonding bill appropriates $4.4 million for construction of the multiuse trail around White Bear Lake. “This is a huge win in a highly competitive arena for the Lake Links Association and the greater White Bear Lake area,” said Sen. Chuck Wiger (DFL-Maplewood). The funding amount is below engineering estimates, but the association is confident the amount will allow completion of an “amazing” percentage of the trail, the senator noted. Wiger thanked all who supported his bill by visiting the Capitol and participating in the committee hearings. “Funding for the Lake Links Trail would not have been included in this plan were it not for your hard work,” Wiger said, adding, “I am especially grateful for the bipartisan coalition of lawmakers who co-authored my bill, including DFL Senator Sandy Pappas and Republican Senators Roger Chamberlain, David Senjem and Karin Housley.” Lake Links co-chairman Steve Wolgamot said the association was proud and pleased that proposed amendments to Senate File 4013, released May 9, include trail funding. “This proposal reflects the Senate Capital Investment Committee’s understanding of the importance of providing a safe route near White Bear Lake — a knowledge reinforced by broad community support,” Wolgamot said. “That support was very much in evidence at the committee’s hearing just two weeks ago when 50 Lake Links supporters appeared in their yellow shirts to support the proposal.” Local families and cities have identified for the association, and pledged use of, more than a mile of railroad bed, added Wolgamot, who also sits on the Mahtomedi City Council. “Constructing a trail on railroad bed is substantially less expensive than placing side trails right next to roads, meaning there will be a great savings because of the generosity of people in our communities.” Lake Links has been working diligently with potential suppliers to identify “high-quality solutions” for difficult locations along the trail, noted Wolgamot, at a lower cost than previously estimated. “This trail is a dream of all the cities and people around the lake and has been for decades. As we say at every Lake Links meeting, ‘We will get this done.’” The 10-mile trail will eventually link with the Gateway and Vento regional trails. The Legislature has historically approved a “bonding bill” during even-year legislative sessions. Bonding bills require three-fi fths of support from each legislative body to pass (81 House representatives and 41 senators). As a result, DFL and Republican lawmakers must work together in the fi nal days of the session and fi nd common ground before awarding funding.

South Shore trail advisory group indecisive about best option RAMSEY COUNTY — After months of studying traffic volume and trail options and hosting public meetings, the preliminary design development study for incorporating a multiuse trail along South Shore Boulevard is complete. Well, sort of complete. The recommendation from the project advisory team (PAT) is for more study. The team, including representatives from Ramsey County Parks & Recreation, Ramsey County Public Works, city of White Bear Lake and White Bear Township, was tasked with deciding a locally preferred alternative for alignment of the trail and its cost. Community meetings on Nov. 16 and Dec. 7, 2017, gathered feedback used to prepare preliminary plans for the proposed trail. The area of focus was limited to the 1.5-mile South Shore Boulevard corridor between White Bear Avenue and East County Line Road. Alternative alignments outside of this corridor were not reviewed due to the specific nature of the funding received for the effort. Even though the one-way separated option scored well at the meetings, the PAT recommended more study on the six design options. The team wants to hold off identifying a preferred alternative to look at other options on South Shore, as well as options outside the boulevard corridor. According to a Ramsey County report, the justification for this recommendation is based on the following factors: • The cost-benefit analysis. • The proximity of other county roadways that may be better suited for a regional trail. • Viewing the overall trail network from a larger vantage point and broadening the look, rather than focusing merely on proximity to the lakeshore. • The limited and irregular right-of-way of South Shore Boulevard.


The one-way separated trail shown here for South Shore Boulevard scored highest at public meetings but did not get a thumbs up from the advisory team.

• Resulting scores for five of the options are within a small fraction of each other with no clear preference. • Obtaining mutual jurisdictional support. • The need for additional information to make a more informed recommendation. So, what are the next steps? The team recommends compiling a list of corridors to be studied and conducting a more detailed traffic study that includes potential impacts to roadways. PAT also recommends continuance of project advisory team meetings.

Goals are to identify a transition point best suited to separate two-way from one-way traffic along South Shore and to work toward a regional trail designation for the segment. More detail can be found in the preliminary design report found here: Debra Neutkens

COMMUNITY BRIEFS Real ID mandate delayed two years

Minnesotans should be able to use their standard driver’s license or identification cards for domestic air travel or access to federal facilities until 2020 since the state is on track to issue REAL ID-compliant cards later this year. The U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) informed the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services division (DPS-DVS) during a quarterly REAL ID compliance check-in that the state was making the necessary progress to comply with the federal regulations. Minnesota currently has an extension for REAL ID enforcement until Oct. 10, 2018. DHS informed DPS-DVS the state may request an extension from enforcement to bridge the gap between when Minnesota begins issuing REAL ID-compliant licenses and ID cards and when DHS approves the state’s compliance certification. This means that Minnesotans will be able to use their current licenses

and ID cards for federal purposes until Oct. 1, 2020. The Minnesota Legislature passed a law that directs the DPS-DVS to make REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards available by Oct. 1, 2018. Work to meet that deadline continues, even though the federal government won’t require driver’s licenses and IDs to be REAL ID-compliant until Oct. 1, 2020.

May awareness


riting columns is not my thing. That would explain my conspicuous absence on these pages. Still, every once in awhile I take one for the team and agree to write about something; anything. While I mulled a topic, I looked at the Know-ItAll Calendar hanging in the newsroom. There it was: May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Voila! A subject near and dear to my heart. By the way, May is also National Blood Pressure Month; National Chamber Music Month; National Strawberry Month; National Water Safety Month; National Bike Month; National Motorcycle Awareness Month; and National Brain Cancer Feeling Awareness Month. The list goes on. It’s also Celiac Disease Awareness Inspired Month. There must be a lot of people Debra with this disease based on the gluten-free options at supermarkets and Neutkens restaurants. And National Military Appreciation Month. Again, with a son and son-in-law in active duty, this special recognition is gratifying. It’s also National Stroke Awareness Month and National Mental Health Awareness Month. I just read that teens are being treated for a new mental health issue: social media addiction. Doesn’t surprise me. Also among the list for May is National Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Readers may not know there is a support group that meets in White Bear Lake every Tuesday of the month, 6:30 p.m. at the District Center, 4855 Bloom Ave. See for more information on speakers and events. But I digress. Back to skin cancer. This worries me. I am a member of the generation that worked hard to tan. I rubbed baby oil on my skin for Pete’s sake to burn faster. My northern European ancestors blessed me with fair skin, the type that didn’t tan without frying first, but oh did I try. I have the sun- damaged back to prove I could withstand the tropical sun while baking alongside my girlfriends during spring break. A severely blistered back made for a long ride home in a VW bug from Daytona. Bad burns by age 18 is a precursor to melanoma later. And so I faithfully see my dermatologist once a year. I’m waiting for the day she says, “yup, that mole looks malignant.” Skin cancer is no joke. According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with the rates of melanoma increasing over the past three decades. It is estimated that this year the U.S. will see roughly 91,000 new cases of melanoma, resulting in about 9,000 deaths. Risk of melanoma increases with age but it is not uncommon in people younger than 30. In fact, it is one of the most common cancers in young adults, particularly women. And check the soles of your feet. The Know-It-All Calendar cites a dermatologist who states that deadly skin cancer is found to be more advanced when it is developed on the soles of the feet. Wear a hat. Don’t forget the sunscreen. Leave the baby oil at home. Lastly, my interest was piqued the other day by a Washington Post piece regarding noise exposure. Seems it is becoming the “new secondhand smoke.” In midtown Manhattan, for example, the nonemergency call service gets 50,000 calls a day. The No. 1 complaint? Noise. According to the article, the Environmental Protection Agency says noise below an average of 70 decibels over 24 hours is safe and won’t cause hearing loss. A jackhammer is 130 decibels of noise; a chain saw, 110; a rock concert standing near the speakers is 120. Getting passed by police with sirens blaring is 120 and a noisy restaurant is 70. We won’t even talk about leaf blowers. Skin cancer and hearing loss. Wonder what June will bring. Debra Neutkens is managing editor of Press Publications.

Recall reminder: Keep your food safe to eat


he recent egg recall was a wake up call. Eggs are one of the most versatile, nutritious and widely consumed food item. Unfortunately, the egg recall was large and many people got sick. Food travels far these days, and many products under different names come from the same large production plants, which increases the number of people affected by contamination and a recall. A single product can contain ingredients from many different production sites, sometimes making it difficult to trace the source of contamination. Contamination can occur at multiple points along the path of a food before it gets to our table. Peanut butter, wheat flour, frozen fruit, melon and romaine are all foods that have been subject to contamination and recall recently. The FDA is limited in the oversight of food safety, leaving much of the responsibility to the consumer. While the food we bring into our home has the risk of being contaminated, there are several steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of developing a foodborne illness. These safe food practices will allow us to continue

to enjoy delicious food and be nourished. 1. Cook foods thoroughly and use a thermometer to check temperatures. Bringing a food to the recommended temperature is known as the “kill step.” Even if there is pathogenic bacteria present on or in the food item prior to cooking, if the food reaches the recommended temperatures prior to being Movers and consumed, the bacteria will die and not cause Shakers illness. Do not consume undercooked foods, inMegan Baumler cluding over-easy eggs. 2. Foods that will be raw (fruits and vegetables) b eaten t ( should be washed thoroughly. Produce does not require a special wash — just plenty of water will eliminate any potential contaminants. 3. Prevent cross contamination by eliminating any contact between raw meats and foods that will not be cooked prior to eating. Prepare meats and poultry in a separate area


Lake legislation highlights lack of leadership

For far too long, the philosophy espoused by the city councils of the various communities in the northeast metro has been that the water supply is limited only by the size of the pumps used to suck it out of the aquifer. The recent reduction in lake levels of White Bear Lake is the proverbial canary in the coal mine, warning these leaders that the assumptions that they have relied upon in approving unlimited and unchecked development are false. The aquifer does not have enough water to support the northeast metro and its recent growth. We ignore these signs at our own peril. Despite these warning signs, communities in the northeast metro continue approving additional developments that bring additional thirsty mouths to the area. Instead of introducing legislation to fix the problem by switching from the vanishing aquifer to the Mississippi, our state legislative leaders have taken it upon themselves to introduce legislation that bars the DNR from enforcing the judge’s orders and gives the local communities in the northeast metro a license to continue their wasteful practices. State Rep. Linda Runbeck, one of the bill’s sponsors, stated that the judge’s ruling might “bring development and new construction to a halt.” If the current levels of development are draining the aquifer and are unsustainable, why shouldn’t new development come to a halt? At least until we can be sure how much additional development, if any, is sustainable. I would venture a guess that in a year from now there will be yet another bill authorizing the DNR to continue to ignore a lawful court order (perhaps by committing contempt of court) because once again, communities in the northeast metro will be unprepared to deal with the consequences of their past wasteful decisions on water usage. This will continue until future generations must foot the bill when the water runs out. This is not leadership, this is procrastination. Justin McCarthy Birchwood Village

Celebrate National EMS Week

May 20-26 marks the 44th annual celebration of National EMS Week in the United States. Each year, the celebration offers a special time to recognize the crucial role EMS providers play in the community. But even more, it serves as an excellent reminder to say thank you. As the medical director of EMS at Regions Hospital, my team and I see firsthand the lifesaving care EMS teams from your community provide to our patients long before they arrive at the hospital. This care is highly professional, timely and undoubtedly critical to a patient’s short-term and long-term success. Because we do not always have the chance to say thank you to these providers — as they are swooping into our Ambulance Arrival Center or administering critical care at the scene — this week, my team and I would like to give a big thank you to each of these real-life superheroes. The work these first responders do every day is simply amazing. And we are so thankful to be their partner in EMS — this week and 365 days a year. Your community is in excellent hands. Please join us as we say thank you to our first responders during National EMS Week. RJ Frascone, MD Medical Director, Regions Hospital Emergency Medical Services

“While the food we bring into our home has the risk of being contaminated, there are several steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of developing a foodborne illness.” or on a separate cutting board, and wash area and tools thoroughly with soap and hot water immediately after preparation. Anything that comes into contact with the raw meat or poultry, such as a spoon, bowl, counter, or hands, must be washed before touching anything else. 4. Wash hands and forearms with hot soapy water for 20 seconds, and dry thoroughly prior to working with food. If you have cuts or scrapes on your hands, use gloves, or do not participate in food preparation. Cuts or open wounds easily become infected with stapholococcus aureas, which can contaminate food. Do not touch your face or hair while participating in food prep. Wash hands frequently and most especially after using the bathroom. 5. Do not consume food that has been between 40-140 degrees Fahrenheit (“the danger zone”) for more than 2 hours. At this tempera-

ture for this duration of time, bacteria present in the food can multiply to an extent that if consumed, would make a person sick. While throwing out food can be painful, it is not nearly as painful as food poisoning can be. It is not worth the risk. 6. Follow directions exactly when canning foods at home, and only consume home canned gifted foods if you trust that the giver followed safe canning practices. The University of Minnesota Food Safety Extension has excellent modules on home canning and food safety that are short and easy to understand. Use these safe practices and enjoy the simple pleasure of food. Megan Baumler, PhD, RD, is a registered dietitian, adjunct professor, teaches clinical nutrition at the University of Minnesota and lives in White Bear Lake.


Elizabeth Rogers Cobb

Myrtle Evelyn Storeygard

Elizabeth Rogers Cobb (“Betty”) was born in Ripley, Ohio on August 8, 1918, and died in White Bear Lake, Minnesota on April 30, 2018, three months shy of her 100th birthday. She was the daughter of Samuel Griffith Rogers and Virginia Harrison White Rogers of Youngstown, Ohio. Betty lived a full and happy life, blessed with a loving husband of 67 years, Thomas Clinton Cobb (“Clint,” who passed away in 2010 at age 90 in Greenville, N.C.), and four children and their families. Betty is survived by three daughters, Barbara Reed Cobb Memory of White Bear Lake; and twins Virginia Cobb Bement (Michael) of Mahtomedi; and Elizabeth Cobb Nelson of Cockeysville, Md. Son Thomas Clinton Cobb, Jr. passed away in Los Angeles in 2008. Betty’s grandsons are Alexander Clinton Memory of Columbia, Md. (Suzette), Samuel Barrett Nelson of Baltimore, (Taryn), and Evan Michael Bement of Mahtomedi. Betty’s sister, Susan Rogers Williams, lives in the family home in Ripley, Ohio (where Betty spent childhood summers). Cousins, nieces, and nephews abound. Betty is also survived by dear friends Kay Polzin of Kalamazoo, Mich.; Bill and Barbara Crawford of Jacksonville, Fla.; and Mary and Charles Cullop of Cincinnati, Ohio. A memorial and interment service will be held Sunday, June 17, 2018, at 12:30 in the Memorial Garden of Eastminster Presbyterian Church, in East Lansing, Mich. Betty’s name will be engraved on a brass plaque for the Wall of Remembrance, joining those that honor husband Clint (2010) and son Tom (2008).

Myrtle Evelyn Storeygard, age 95, of the Gables of Boutwells Landing in Oak Park Heights, Minn., went home to be with the Lord on March 30, 2018. She was born on October 9, 1922 in Minneapolis, to Martin and Aasta Eidsvoog. Sue was married to Normann Storeygard for 67 magnificent years. She was a great wife to Norm and a fantastic mother to her three boys. She had a smile that was so compelling that it made everybody happy. Her granddaughter Kimberly summed her up best: “It was impossible not to love her… she always had a smile, hug, or kind word for anyone who needed them. She was unfailingly cheerful and optimistic…an exemplar of how strong and adaptive humans can be when they choose to believe the best of each other.” She was preceded in death by her husband Normann, her parents, Martin and Aasta Eidsvoog, three brothers and one sister, and her infant son Paul. She is survived by her three sons David (Judy), Alan (Paula), Bob (Didi); grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her sister-in-law Betts Eidsvoog; and Norm’s sister Veda Emery (Curt).

MAY 16, 2018

RAMSEY COUNTY SHERIFF REPORTS The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office reported the following incidents:

Vadnais Heights • It’s the season. Four window air conditioning units were stolen the evening of May 3 from the yard of a Lutheran church in the 3600 block of Centerville Road. The units, awaiting the next day’s installation, were valued at $3,000 to $4,000 each. Neighbors reported activity about the time of the theft. Scrap metal dealers have been notified. • Firefighters and deputies alike responded to a report of a house fire the afternoon of May 4 in the 500 block of Westfield Lane. The occupants, a couple in their mid-20s, said their cat was inside. Firefighters rescued the cat and an investigation as to the cause of the fire is underway. • A woman aroused suspicion as she approached the checkout lanes at Walmart the evening of May 7

because her items were already stowed in bags. The suspect grabbed the bags and ran out the door, closely followed by store security. She was quickly collared and $302 worth of bicycle-related items were recovered. The suspect, a 42-year-old St. Paul female, who had a previous theft conviction barely a month ago, was found in possession of several credit cards in different names. She was booked into jail.

White Bear Township • Hoping to get an early start on the shortened summer season, Bald Eagle Lake homeowners called May 3 to arrange to have their dock installed. The residents, on their way back from Florida at the time, received a callback informing them that the sections of aluminum framing for the dock, having spent the winter piled alongside their Lake Avenue house, were gone, and that all that remained was the wooden decking. Scrap metal dealers were informed.

• An “ex-boyfriend,” age 33 from Wisconsin, was visiting his ex-girlfriend, also 33, on Doe Circle on May 5 and was awakened about midnight and swung at her. The ex-girlfriend called 911 and the ex-boyfriend went to jail on charges of disorderly conduct and fifth-degree assault. • A 39-year-old local woman having “relationship issues” with her 40-year-old boyfriend at a residence in the 4400 block of Otter Lake Road, called 911 after the boyfriend assaulted her. He was booked into jail on pending charges of domestic assault and fifth-degree assault (causing fear), and the matter was referred to the city attorney. • An ATV was reported stolen overnight May 5 from the driveway of a residence in the 5000 block of Cottage Lane. The Coolster brand J25cc four-wheeler, which had no plates, was valued at $1,500. “The keys may have been in it,” said the 44-year-old owner.

WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF REPORTS The Washington County Sheriff’s Office reported the following selected incidents in Birchwood, Dellwood, Grant, Mahtomedi, Pine Springs and Willernie:

Birchwood • A resident on Oakridge Drive reported an unlocked vehicle tampered with overnight May 5-6. • A resident on Oakhill Court reported a Jeep Wrangler stolen overnight May 5-6 by thieves who used a key hidden under one of the seats. A wallet was also taken. The vehicle was discovered by deputies on May 7 as they drove around the Century College parking lot looking for it. The complainant was advised to check out the vehicle and to see about getting it rekeyed.

Grant • Employees of Cartiva in the 1100 block of 60th Street N. reported finding a syringe in their parking lot May 1. The drug paraphernalia was taken into evidence and destroyed. • A woman with brown hair and driving a Toyota Prius was reported May 4 for driving through a school bus stop arm May 1 in the 9000 block of Joliet Avenue as three students waited at the end of the road. The school bus driver said the motorist didn’t make any attempt to stop but sped up to try and make it through the flashing amber lights of the bus. The motorist didn’t make it through in time but slowed down long enough to go around the bus as two of the students were crossing the street. • A St. Paul man, 22, was arrested at 4:32 a.m. May 5 on 75th Street N. and Keats Avenue N. for fifth-degree controlled substance violation and possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a motor vehicle, after deputies

on routine patrol went over to check on his vehicle parked at the location at that late hour. As deputies approached the vehicle, the occupants started to drive away, but were stopped. The two passengers, both from St. Paul, were cited for underage consumption.

Mahtomedi • A resident in the 200 block of Shamrock Drive reported a Smith and Wesson 9mm firearm and a Yamaha guitar stolen overnight April 29-30 from a vehicle parked at the address. The complainant later located his guitar for sale online. • A resident in the 800 block of Woodland Court on April 30 reported her vehicle damaged by a male at an address in St. Paul after she drove it there to drop off some rims. The complainant told deputies that the same male also damaged her phone. Because the phone was in the subject’s name, deputies advised the complainant that they couldn’t take action against him. • Employees at St. Jude of the Lake school in the 700 block of Mahtomedi Avenue reported finding multicolored marijuana pipes on the playground near the basketball court May 1. Extra patrol was requested due to the history of that part of the playground being a hangout for drug activity. • A resident in the 100 block of Locust Street reported that an unlocked vehicle parked in the driveway was tampered with overnight May 1-2. When the complainant woke up, she noticed the glove box opened and papers strewn all over the ground. • A candle and a work bag of no value were reported missing after an unlocked vehicle parked in a driveway in the 100 block of Locust Street was

tampered with overnight May 1-2. • A resident in the 700 block of Griffin Court on May 2 reported her neighbor for blocking her vehicle in her driveway with her own vehicle. The subject also shouted that the complainant was beating her son as he was getting into their car. As the blocking and shouting neighbor was scheduled to be evicted on the upcoming Monday and had a history of causing the police to be called, the complainant wanted deputies to evict her five days ahead of time. On April 30, a third party reported the two feuding neighbors for swearing and causing a disturbance over alleged child molestation issues. • A Woodbury woman, 38, was cited at 12:39 a.m. May 3 on Century Avenue and Highway 244 for driving after suspension after deputies on patrol conducted a traffic stop for tabs that expired in January. The motorist was also issued a verbal warning for expired registration and failure to transfer title. • A resident in the 100 block of Glenmar Avenue on May 3 reported his pool liner damaged by juveniles with whom he had been having ongoing issues. Last year, the complainant reported the juveniles for paintballing his house. • A resident in the 400 block of Arcwood Road on May 4 reported receiving notification that his Social Security number had been compromised and that his accounts would be frozen unless he replied by providing his Social Security number. Deputies advised the complainant to contact the Social Security Administration. • A resident in the 200 block of Hallam Curve reported finding a drone on his property May 5. The identifying registration on the drone was traced to

New Richmond, Wisconsin. While the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Department checks on the owner, the drone will be taken and entered into evidence.

Pine Springs • A Willernie woman, 28, was issued a verbal warning at 1:54 a.m. May 5 on Warner Avenue S. and 62nd Street N. for speeding. Deputies described the subject, who sported a marijuana tattoo, as nervous after deputies asked her about the large knife on the floor mat by her feet and an ammo can in her vehicle.

Willernie • A resident in the 300 block of Wildwood Road on May 1 reported $475 in fraudulent charges to her TCF checking account. The complainant is currently working with her bank to have the charges removed. • A patron of the post office on Wildwood Road reported a Coach bag and an iPad taken from her vehicle May 3 while she was inside the post office. The complainant had left a window on her vehicle cracked open, and someone had managed to unlock the vehicle and enter. A suspicious male, 20, with dark hair and dark hat and wearing blue jeans was observed lurking in the area. The incident may have been captured on video, which will be emailed to deputies for follow-up. • A resident in the 200 block of Sargent Road on May 3 reported a semi delivering food to the sandwich shop across the street for backing up and striking her fence before driving away. The sandwich shop has a video of the area, so follow-up will continue.

Over the last several years, the dark secrets of prostitution and sex trafficking in the Twin Cities metro have begun to be revealed. Law enforcement, attorney’s offices and judges are cracking down on the demand that has led to the physical and emotional enslavement of hundreds of victims. Law enforcement personnel posing as teen girls for sale for sex have received over a hundred phone calls or texts per ad from people wanting to buy, reported Ramsey County Attorney John Choi and Washington County Attorney Pete Orput. As part of the state’s Safe Harbor legislation several years ago, the penalty for purchasing prostitution was increased to a felony in certain circumstances. The law is the most restrictive in the nation and only three other states have similar laws, said Scott Wasserman, public information offi cer, Minnesota Office of Justice Programs. “It increases the mandatory community work service the judge must order and increases the mandatory fi ne from $500 to $3,000,” he noted. Most sex buyers, aka ‘johns’, buy sex between 30 and 60 miles from their hometown, according to a University of Minnesota study released last year. Buyers are predominantly middle-aged, married men. In 2017, 111 ‘johns’ were convicted for offering to buy sex in the seven-county metro area, according to data from the State Court Administrator’s Offi ce. Northeast metro residents are among those who have been caught and convicted for offering to buy sex across the Twin Cities during stings by law enforcement in recent years. They used to be called ‘john.’ Today, they have a name.


Matschke was caught during a sting by the St. Paul Police Department and other law enforcement agencies last year. Undercover officers posted an online ad with a female claiming to be 18. When people responded, they were told the girl was actually 15 years old. Matschke responded and said it was OK she was 15. He requested an hour of services. When he arrived at the hotel, he was arrested by law enforcement. Matschke pleaded guilty and was convicted of hiring or agreeing to hire prostitution from a 13- to 15-year-old, a felony. He was sentenced to a 10-year probation and fined $550. Among the terms of his probation, he is not allowed to vote. He is not allowed to have contact with minors or loiter in areas frequented by minors. He is required to complete any counseling or treatment ordered by the court and is not allowed to use any dating sites, sexually explicit material or the like. Thaddeus Joseph Mosqueda, 56, of Stillwater, was arrested last year during a prostitution sting by the St. Paul Police Department. An ad using slang to explain the offer was posted online by undercover officers. Several men responded, including Mosqueda, who lived in St. Paul at the time, according to court documents. Mosqueda agreed to pay $100 for half an hour of sexual services. When Mosqueda arrived at the indicated hotel room, he hugged the undercover female officer and said he was scared due to prior sting operations at the hotel. He then removed his suit coat and shoes. The undercover officer asked whether he would wear a condom; he said no and agreed to pay extra. The un-



Stillwater resident Thomas John Matschke, 38, was convicted last fall for offering to buy sex from a 15-year-old.

The incident was audio recorded. Mosqueda pleaded guilty and was convicted of hiring, offering or agreeing to hire prostitution, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to one year of probation. Twenty-nine days in jail is stayed if he successfully completes the terms of his probation. He was required to attend Breaking Free’s john school, which he completed. He was fined $250.

Vadnais Heights

Jerome Christopher Burts, 28, of Vadnais Heights, was arrested during a sting by the Inver Grove Heights Police Department conducted with the assistance of a special agent with Homeland Security. Burts responded via email to an online ad in 2016 suggesting juvenile sex was for sale. A Homeland Security agent responded that it would cost $50-100 for various sexual services and that the girl was 15 years old, 5-foot-3-inches and 105 pounds. Burt continued communication via email, text and phone calls, directing Burt to a hotel room in Inver Grove Heights. Burts, who lived in Hugo at the time, was arrested when he arrived at the hotel. He admitted to talking with a girl on Craigslist and that he came to the hotel to “have sex or whatever.” Burts was charged with prostitution and prostitution in a public place. He pleaded not guilty to both charges. He was convicted of misdemeanor prostitution in 2017; the second gross misdemeanor charge was dismissed. He was sentenced to one year of probation and three days in jail. He was fi ned $300.

In February, Shoreview resident Vishal Sookhai, 42, was convicted for offering to hire a prostitute at a Bloomington hotel last summer. Sookhai was caught during a “john sweep” conducted by the Bloomington Police and St. Paul Police departments Aug. 24, according to court documents. The sting is designed to target people who buy sexual services online. An undercover female detective placed a suggestive advertisement on with photos of another woman. Sookahi responded to the ad and came to the specifi ed hotel. He paid $100 for half an hour of services. Sookhai was then arrested by undercover backup officers. Sookhai pleaded guilty Feb. 27 to a charge of hiring, offering or agreeing to hire prostitution in a public place, a gross misdemeanor. He was fined $750 and sentenced to a two-year probation. Shoreview resident Christopher Joseph Heinze, 43, was convicted for agreeing to hire for prostitution someone he reasonably believed was under age 18 in 2017, according to court documents. Heinze responded to a juvenile escort ad placed online by undercover officers in 2016. They informed him the prostitute was 16 years old and he requested sexual services. Offi cers gave Heinze an undercover apartment address in Maple Grove, where he arrived and was subsequently arrested. A forensic analysis of Heinze’s phone showed he was communicating with undercover offi cers. Heinze was charged with a felony and pleaded guilty. He was convicted of a gross misdemeanor and sentenced to a two-year probation. He was given 60 days in the workhouse, with 305 days stayed if he successfully completes his probation terms. He was fined $3,300 with $2,300 of it stayed. He was also required to receive therapy and undergo a psychosexual evaluation.

HANIFL: Family believes in sharing business success with global community FROM PAGE 1A

“Sage grew because of new products,” Paul said. “When you start something, it better be a good idea that people will buy five years later. That is the business acumen: understanding customers, understanding trends in the medical industry.” Some of the pioneering products Sage developed are sharps disposal containers, antiseptic washcloths, pressure ulcer prevention and patient hygiene products such as disposable baths. Many of their products are in hospitals, movies about hospitals and TV doctor shows. “It was always a goal of mine to have my products in a movie,” Paul maintained. One such movie displaying their products is “Outbreak,” starring Dustin Hoffman. When Sage was sold to Stryker Medical in 2016, a $13 billion company, retirement soon followed. Today, the Hanifl s split their time between Naples, Florida, and North Oaks. Months of the year are also reserved for fishing at their remote Canadian cabin and for traveling; mostly to exotic fi shing destinations. Exotic is not to be confused with luxurious. The Hanifl s prefer wild, remote and primitive, although there was the week spent at a Russian billionaire’s lodge in eastern Siberia. The only way in was by helicopter. “It was the Taj Mahal of hunting lodges,” Paul said. He won the trip in a silent auction for a salmon foundation. World-record taimen, a member of the trout family, was on his fly fi shing list. And catch them, they did. “Our group caught four of the top six taimen in the world ever caught on fly rods,” Paul noted. The Hanifl s have fi shed all over the world: Mongolia, also for taimen; the Seychelles for giant trevally; Egypt for Nile perch; Dubai for queen fi sh. Name a species and chances are good the family of fi shermen know where and how to catch it. The Hanifl s started their nonprofit 501(3) (c) foundation in 2000 to support communities through programs promoting environmental awareness, conservation, education, the arts and sciences, health and physical fitness. Locally, the foundation helped build White Bear Lake’s performing arts center; there was also a $500,000 grant in 2010 to build Hanifl Fields in Hugo, and Hanifl Family Wild Woods at the Minnesota Zoo. Globally, the couple has erected an outdoor educational/environmental studies wing at Suzanne’s former school in India, also called the Hanifl Center. They support health clinics for the underinsured in Florida and Illinois, and an after-school program for girls called “Sisters for Science” in Chicago ghetto neighborhoods. The couple also have an interest in racehorses. They own a small thoroughbred operation named Suzanne Stables that is focused on breeding Minnesota horses for the track. A recent claim to fame occurred last week when one of their mares foaled a large colt out of American Pharaoh, the 2015 Triple Crown winner. Still unnamed, he is the fi rst colt born in Minnesota out of the famous sire. So how did philanthropists from the Chicago area end up here? Their three children and nine grandchildren live in the metro area. A son lives in Excelsior; a daughter lives in Northfield and their oldest child, Sharon Hanifl-Lee, lives in Hugo.


Children’s Performing Arts board chair Sharon Hanifl-Lee, left, and her parents Paul and Suzanne Hanifl, attended a function last Thursday at the Performing Arts Center named for their foundation.

Getting the Hanifl Performing Arts Center in White Bear Lake is a serendipitous happenstance that can be attributed to Sharon’s daughter and Paul and Suzanne’s granddaughter. According to her mother, 13-year-old Maddox loves the stage and has dreams of being on Broadway. Sharon serves on the board of directors for Children’s Performing Arts (CPA), formerly of Forest Lake, which now occupies the north wing of the new theater. It was Sharon who suggested the foundation provide the generous grant to house both the CPA and Lakeshore Players. The mother of three feels theater is a “life-changing positive force in the lives of children.” Suzanne Hanifl called it “an honor” to see their name on the new performing arts center. “We were given so much, you have to give back,” she said. “Hopefully it will be appreciated and used for education and entertainment by the entire community.” Added Paul: “I think the mayor said it best at the groundbreaking when she said people were worried when Lakeshore Players went in, that the facility would often be sitting vacant. Now that there’s a second group in there, it will have life all the time.” Hanifl-Lee describes her parents as highly intelligent people who are “generous, giving and caring.” “My parents have been blessed with success,” she said. “We feel this success should be shared with the community. It makes them happy to see people succeed.”


Paul and Suzanne Hanifl with daughter Sharon Hanifl-Lee and her husband Mike at the Kentucky Derby in 2016. They own a small stable of racehorses in Minnesota with hopes of someday breeding a contender.


Suzanne and Paul Hanifl secured rights to the arts center with a generous gift from their foundation. Residents of Florida, the couple split their time between Naples, North Oaks and travel destinations. Fishing trips are always part of their itinerary.

Suzanne Hanifl caught this 47-inch tiger muskie on a remote Ontario lake called Little Lake Vermillion. Husband Paul is holding the monster fish, caught on a lure handmade by their son-in- law. The muskie was released.

APPEAL: Lawsuit moves to higher court FROM PAGE 1A

relief and a declaration that the DNR violated the public trust doctrine and Minnesota Environmental Rights Act (MERA) by issuing groundwater appropriation permits that authorize pumping. On Aug. 30, district court judge Margaret Marrinan entered judgment against the DNR. The Court of Appeals documents filed by lead counsel Oliver Larson listed specific issues proposed to be raised on appeal: • Whether non-party municipalities whose permits the district court ordered DNR to modify (within a 5-mile radius of the lake) were necessary parties to the litigation. • Whether Section 3 of MERA allows a party to sue a state agency for issuing a permit the party believes is inadequate to protect the public interest or whether such claims must be brought pursuant to Section 10, which limits the available relief to remanding the challenged permit to the agency for further proceedings.

• Whether MERA requires a state agency to reopen permits to retroactively apply statutes adopted after permits were issued. • Whether the public trust doctrine requires the DNR to refrain from issuing any groundwater permits, even for municipal use, if the permit may have an impact on the elevation of the state’s public waters. • Whether district courts have jurisdiction to amend the terms of a lake’s protective elevation set by DNR or whether review of DNR’s decision is limited to a certiorari appeal (a writ or order by which a higher court reviews a decision of a lower court). • Whether the district court’s numerous factual errors require reversal of its decision. Oral argument is requested. Assistant Commissioner Barb Naramore indicated the agency is also asking the appeals court to stay the judge’s August 2017 order until the appeals process is complete.

Late bloomer fi nds artistic calling in watercolor cards BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

Anthony Nardecchia is on his third, maybe fourth career. A former jet fighter pilot turned systems analyst turned children’s author turned artist, the Birchwood Village Renaissance man wants people to know it’s never too late to follow your dreams. Nardecchia, who goes by the nickname “Nino,” uses himself as an example. “I never felt I could draw until 2013 when my partner in life, Karen Holmen, enrolled me in a sketching class offered at the White Bear Center for the Arts. It was a game-changer,” recalled Nardecchia. Taught by James Nutt, the class helped Nardecchia learn the fundamentals and gain the encouragement he needed to draw. He shared his work with friends, which led to a commissioned watercolor piece for H2O for Life’s Water Ball fundraiser in 2017. It was a painting of Tally’s Dockside. People wanted to know if he had more work for sale. So Holmen encouraged Nardecchia to create notecards and sell them, generating money for charitable groups that provide services to children and families in need. He decided to give it a try. In his latest career as artist and benefactor, Nardecchia gives 100 percent of the net proceeds from his card sales to organizations like the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf, St. Andrew’s Community Resource Center, H2O for Life and Second Harvest. Last year, he raised $1,500; his goal for 2018 is to raise $3,000 to help these “organizations continue their important work.” When he’s not at his easel, Nardecchia visits school classrooms and senior centers as a motivational speaker to encourage both children and seniors to follow their dreams, whether it’s pursuing a smoldering passion for art, picking up a new instrument or writing a children’s book. He has experience with that, too, with a series called “The Royal Guard Dragons,” published in 2007. “Art is personal; an effortless joy,” Nardecchia said. “It is something you do for yourself, which is always good. I tell people it’s never too late. With a little instruction and practice, you will get better.” Recently back from a monthlong trip to Greece, Nardecchia and Holmen love to


Birchwood artist Nino Nardecchia creates notecards from his paintings to sell in the local communities they depict. Proceeds from the cards are donated to nonprofits that provide assistance and support to children and families in need.

travel. He uses sightseeing excursions to generate paintings and drawings for his notecards. He retired from the Air Force in 1991 as a lieutenant colonel, then spent the next 14 years as a systems analyst and database developer in the insurance and securities industries. Nardecchia retired again in 2005 when he returned home to White Bear Lake to care for his mother Stella, who had Alzheimer’s disease. She died in 2015 at age 91. By happy circumstance, Holmen lived two doors down from the Nardecchias on Hall Avenue in Birchwood. The two graduated together in 1967 but didn’t know each other in high school. After

he graduated, Nardecchia went to the U.S. Air Force Academy and flew fi ghter jets for the military. “Karen and I have a common background,” he said of his life partner. “It was timing and luck that we reconnected.” Both have children and grandchildren. His notecards are sold at Ox and Crow coffee shop in Willernie and White Bear Center for the Arts. They can also be viewed at Cards are sold individually or in sets of five with envelopes. A five-card set is $22.50. There is an online discount. “I don’t need to make money off this,” maintained Nardecchia. “I just want to pay it forward.”


When Nardecchia was asked to sub as Santa at the Birchwood Christmas party, he attended Santa school and “studied hard” to learn all the reindeer names.

4 Square Flats: More questions than answers BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

WHITE BEAR LAKE — Interest was so high in the 4 Square Flats apartment project that two back-toback meetings were held May 7 at nearby Northeast Residence. The room wasn’t big enough. Developer Troy Mathwig and his architect presented concept drawings for the four apartment buildings proposed at the corner of Bellaire Avenue and County Road E to Ward 4 residents and area business owners. An estimated 200 people attended. According to Councilman Kevin

Edberg, who represents Ward 4, reaction to the project was “mixed.” “There are many questions that need to be answered,” he said. “Parking, snow removal, traffic, density, building height and uncertainty around the role of retail were all mentioned as concerns.” The councilman added that no one wants the intersection to remain in its current state of blight, but residents aren’t sure this project is the right scale for the area. The developer has put three of the four corners under contract contingent on city approval for zoning entitlements. The fourth corner is owned

by the city. City Planner Anne Kane said Mathwig indicated he will abandon the proposal if the city-owned parcel is not included. The intersection would be redeveloped for mixed use, three-story multifamily apartments with commercial components on the first floors under the proposal. The 99 apartments would be market rate with the possibility that 20 percent will be affordable housing units. Based on median income for White Bear Lake, it was estimated people earning $45,000 or less would qualify for affordable housing. Kane told City Council members

May 8 that there is a lot of interest in the project. Asked for a timeline, she said a concept and site plan would be submitted first for the planned unit development, with a traffic study conducted end of June. The concept plan would likely go before the Planning Commission in July and the City Council in August. That would be followed by more detailed plans and applications, public hearings and request for tax increment financing in the fall.

PUBLIC SAFETY BRIEFS Investigation at massage business

Jade Massage at 2033 County Road E was closed May 10 after an investigation involving local law enforcement, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and Homeland Security. “Law enforcement officers including special agents with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension are conducting a law enforcement operation in several locations in and around the Twin Cities today. There is no threat to the public. Because this operation involves an ongoing investigation, no further information is available at this time,” stated Jill Oliveira, public information officer with the BCA. Special agents with Homeland Security Investigations were also on site, reported Shawn Neudauer, public affairs officer with Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office was assisting the BCA with a warrant, reported Becqi Sherman, public information officer. No one was arrested, reported White Bear Lake Police Capt. Dale Hager. As of press time, Olivera stated the operation involves an ongoing investigation and no further information is available.



Jade Massage was closed May 10; a sign placed on the door with biohazard tape read, “Closed. Police were here.”

MAY 16, 2018

LOOKING BACK Week of May 12 – May 19, 2018 Culled from the archives of the White Bear Press at the resource library of the White Bear Lake Area Historical Society. 1918 We see by the notices posted that another special school election is to be held May 24th. This the writer believes to be a move in the right direction.

Bear boys track headed for state true-team as wildcard BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

White Bear Lake boys track qualified for the state true-team meet as a wildcard entry after placing second in Section 5AAA. Cambridge-Isanti scored 1003.5 points, the Bears 937.5, and Blaine 959.5 for top three among nine teams at home last Wednesday. The Bears then placed first in the “paper meet,” in which section performances of the non-champions are tabulated. Eight section champs and four wildcards will compete at state Friday in Stillwater. As always, the Bears scored heavily in the longer runs and hurdles, led by double winners Ben Vanderbosch and Conor McManamon. Vanderbosch won the 800 in 1:58.42 with Logan Tanttu second (2:00.22) and Sam Racine eighth (2:05.97). In the 1600, Vanderbosh won in 4:21.96 with Isaac Maruyama fourth (4:30.36) and Tryg Solberg fifth (4:36.40). In the

3200, Max Nelson took second (9:45.73), Jace Bartz fourth (9:55.68) and Trevor Locke sixth (10:14.74). “Ben Vanderbosch had an outstanding meet. Our distance runners are a very strong group of athletes,” coach Thomas Paulson said. The Bears also won the 4x800 relay (8:08.15) with Rohlinger, Bartz, Taylor and Tanttu and the 4x400 relay (3:29.71) with McManamon, Taylor, Wahl and Rohlinger. In hurdles, McManamon cruised to first place in 110 highs (15.17) and 300 intermediates (40.23). Garrit Christenson took fourth in the 300 (42.11) and fifth in the 110 (16.18), with Dyshawn Mitchell seventh (42.68) and ninth (16.68). Kevin Boeing was top scorer in the jumps — fifth in triple jump (41-10 1/2), fifth in high jump (tie, 6-0) and 11th in long jump (19-2 1/2). Fidel Deleon-Paramo took fourth in long jump (20-3 1/2). Top sprint finish was by Rohlinger, sixth in the 400 (52.86). In the throws, Andrew Kohnen took second in shot put (49-0) and Connor Thiesfeld third in discus (144-2).


Ben Vanderbosch leads the pack in the 800 meter run with Logan Tanttu in third place. They would finish one-two in the race.

White Bear girls track earns state true-team berth with section crown BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

White Bear Lake dominated the relay races and edged Forest Lake for the Section 5AAA true-team girls track championship at home May 9. The Bears — who’ll compete at state Friday in Stillwater — had 951.5 points to Forest Lake’s 930.5. Blaine placed third with 778.5 among nine teams. The Bears won three of four relays and placed second in the other. They won seven events in all. “We made sure that we had four very competitive relays,” coach Patricia Percival said, “since the scoring in the relays is greater than the individual events. And we have a lot of very good runners on the team.” The 4x200 quartet (winning in 1:45.79) had Danielle Madden, Madeline Wallace, Victoria Adebisi and Claire Odmark. The 4x400 team (4:06.60) had Jordan Gast, Emily Brockberg, Tori Taugner and Yajaira Lansiquot. The 4x800 team (10:05.51) had Taugner, Shea Messerschmidt, Miriana Guerra-Reese

and Olivia Schwintek. The Bears won two sprints. Gast took the 400 (1:01.49) with Madden (1:02.06) second, and Odmark took the 200 (26.66). The 4x100 relay team took second (51.33) with Katie Hoover, Madalyn Sanda, Caitlin Wallace and Avery Snyder. Longer runs went well, especially the 3200 with Maggie Blanding first (11:41.35) and Natalie Andres next (11:41.15). In the 800, Brockberg was second (2:28.55) and Schwintek third. (2:28.6). Madeline Verkerke was 1600 runner-up (5:18.54). Alexis Guidry won discus (112-4). Odmark was third in shot put (34-10). Opeoluwa Olusi was sixth in discus (104-5) and seventh in shot (33-2). Kailee Tran long-jumped 16-8 for fourth place, pole-vaulted 10-0 for fifth place, and took 11th in 100 hurdles. Abedisi was fifth in long jump (16-8). In hurdles, Lansiquot was second in the 300 (46.49) and fifth in the 100 (16.87) with Sophie Verkerke was fifth (49.95) and seventh (17.03). The Bears competed without all-state

Drills to help you get a good start this year If you haven’t gotten out to the range yet, why not spend some quality time with a few drills that will help you start out on the right foot. All you need is a full length mirror and a couple of clubs. I am writing this for right-handed golfers. You lefties should be used to reversing the language by now. Tee Time The first drill is to help you feel what it’s like to release the clubhead. The Betsy Larey majority of high handicap golfers do not get this concept, and end up blocking their shots to the right or casting over the top and pulling the club to the left. Stand facing the mirror. Take your driver and turn it upside down so you’re holding the head. Take some swings and really go at it. You should hear a big swoosh. Now take your driver with your regular grip. Do the same thing, this time concentrating on letting the clubhead “work around the butt of the club”. Remember, the butt of the club and the head of the club never move in tandem. Putting yes, full swing no. If you are a blocker, after impact your left elbow will stick out (chicken wing) and the butt and head of the club move together in one piece. Try it in slow motion, and really extend your right arm down the target line on your follow through while

your left arm folds into your body. Think long and low extension as you work through your forward swing. If you are a blocker, this will feel very different than what you normally experience. At the end of your swing hold your pose. What do you look like, and where is your weight balanced? Hopefully you’re facing the mirror straight on, with all of your weight on your left side. If you can’t pick up your right foot without falling backwards, you never completely transferred your weight. Keep practicing this drill until you can pick up that back foot with ease. For the next drill you’ll need a chair with a back. Stand sideways with your left side facing the mirror. Put the chair behind you so your rear end is touching the back. Take your backswing, trying to keep your right cheek against the chair. If it comes off of it, look in the mirror and see where it’s aiming. If it’s aiming at the mirror, that’s going to be a problem because you shifted your weight onto your left side. That’s called a reverse pivot. Start over, only this time your goal is to stop your backswing when you feel your cheek coming off of the chair. Folks, this should be the top of your backswing. If I had to pick one major swing fault of higher handicap golfers, it would be their inability to stay in position at the top of their swing. Good position starts with effectively loading your weight on your right side during your backswing (while keeping the shaft on the

correct swing plane). When you lose that position, you lose the swing plane as well. You can also work on your posture indoors because the mirror gives you perfect feedback. Stand sideways with your left side facing the mirror. You’re looking for a straight back with your arms hanging loosely from your shoulders. Remember, tilt from the hips and not the waist to keep your back straight when you set up at address. Your knees are slightly flexed so your shoulders are over your toes with your weight closer to the balls of your feet. Never be on your heels. If you have a hard time feeling where your weight is, rock back and forth from your heels to the balls of your feet. Look in the mirror and see what you look like. As golfers age, many tend to round their shoulders. If you can, try to avoid that at all costs. If you see rounded shoulders in the mirror, try and pull your shoulders back. A good swing always starts with a great set up. Hopefully these drills will work their way into your golf swing this year. Good luck!

Mahtomedi softball broke out of a slump to defeat Tartan 23-2 and Simley 22-13 last week, while also losing to Simley 6-4. “It’s been an interesting turn of events. I hope it keeps up through the playoffs,” said coach Skip Heagle. Lauren Laviano’s bat was especially torrid with 14 hits in 15 at bats, Heagle reported. The freshman catcher had nine singles, five doubles and a triple. After scoring five runs in their previous four games, all losses, the Zephyrs (66) collected 50 hits, along with 10 walks, for the week. “The girls have done a great job adjusting to pitchers and understanding their roles at the plate,” Heagle said. “We had been struggling for hits the last couple of weeks, so it was nice to see the girls start the offense up.” Maddie Kaste went 8-for-15, Cali McGauley 8-for-15, Emma Nelson 7-for13, Grace Hadlich 7-for-15, and Rachael

Praml 6-for-13, including a key bases-loaded triple against Simley. Haley Rosenthal has been doing most of the pitching.

WHITE BEAR LAKE CITY COUNCIL NOTES WHITE BEAR LAKE — The City Council conducted the following business at its May 8 meeting: • Proclaimed May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day. U.S. flags will be flown at half-staff. Mayor Jo Emerson read a proclamation resolving that May 13-19 be designated Police Week in the city. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. May 17 at St. Mary of the Lake Church in honor of fallen heroes. Since the first recorded death in 1791, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty. • Granted a conditional use permit for the expanded parking lot behind White Bear Center for the Arts. The center purchased residential property at 4962 Division Ave. to expand its lot. The house will be razed. Councilman Dan Jones asked why there wasn’t better planning for parking at the facility? Executive Director Suzy Hudson said growth and interest in the center has doubled in the last five years and has “far exceeded our original vision.”

With the addition of the performing arts center next door, even more growth is expected. The parking lot will serve both cultural destinations. According to Hudson, 10,000 people a year take classes or visit the art center gallery. • Granted a one-year time extension for a setback variance request at 4583 Second Ave. The applicant, Greg Fry with Inspiration Properties LLC, plans to build a home 15 feet from the east lot line for resale. • Granted a sign variance for the White Bear Lake Sports Center. A 6.5-foot variance from the sign code will allow a new monument sign with a dynamic display to be installed near the Highway 96 entrance. • Approved a joint powers agreement with White Bear Township to facilitate Centerville Road improvements from Hwy. 96 N. to Stoddart Lane. The city is acting as lead agency on the project to accommodate the aggressive construction schedule. The

agreement provides for access within the township for construction activities and township participation. The town’s share of the project costs will be negotiated with the city; the town reserves the right to pay for its share of the costs by assessing benefitting properties. • Awarded a bid for Centerville Road improvement project to Forest Lake Contracting Inc. for a bid amount of $894,400. Two bids were received. • Approved a public improvement escrow and disbursing agreement in amount of $820,000 with Division 25 White Bear LLC for the Centerville Road improvement project. Division 25 is the developer for the new Lunds & Byerly’s supermarket at Tower Crossing. The developer is paying 100 percent of road improvement costs up front, hence the escrow account. • Approved a 2.75 percent raise for City Manager Ellen Richter. Effective Jan. 1, 2018, the manager’s biweekly compensation is $5,468. A monthly vehicle allowance of $317 was also authorized. Mayor Emerson thanked Richter for all she’s done, adding “We’re happy to have you as our city manager.” • Noted that the White Bear Lake Conservation District will not be collecting 2018 assessments from member cities. The district board approved a motion last month to reduce its fund balance within the range identified in its policy. • Under city manager communications, Richter said no date has been set for an administrative hearing regarding the DNR amendments to the municipal water permits. Watering restrictions are still in place this summer. Lawn sprinkling is banned from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. The city plans to enforce the restriction. Debra Neutkens

House bill passes to keep DNR from enforcing court order BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

ST. PAUL — The Minnesota House of Representatives passed legislation May 8 delaying for one year a court-ordered enforcement of groundwater permit restrictions. Eleven municipal water suppliers within 5 miles of White Bear Lake were affected by the court order in the lake level lawsuit decided August 2017. District Court Judge Margaret Marrinan ordered the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to enforce amendments to water appropriation permits for the municipalities that included an irrigation ban and limit to per capita water consumption. The legislation, authored by Rep. Linda Runbeck (R-Circle Pines), gives temporary relief to the municipalities affected by the court order, which the representative felt was both overreaching and confusing.

“The important thing is it gives a temporary pause for all cities impacted and beyond to all the people impacted,” Runbeck said. “The order is counterproductive and doesn’t work to conserve water. It is a one-size-fits-all, and that is why it’s challengeable.” Bill HF4003 prohibits the DNR from using funds to enforce certain permit restrictions placed on groundwater appropriations until July 1, 2019. It received bipartisan support in the House and passed 74-52. Area Rep. Peter Fischer (DFL-Maplewood) voted in favor; Rep. Matt Dean (R-Dellwood) voted against. “The judge in this case went way beyond a traditional role by imposing far-reaching and onerous water restrictions on cities within an arbitrary 5-mile radius of White Bear Lake,” Runbeck said. “Policy-making is the job of the legislative and executive branch and the judge’s orders are, in effect, policy created without debate, without hearings or public input. I am grateful

for my colleagues’ support on this very important issue that impacts those living near and around White Bear Lake. I look forward to continuing our work with the DNR to ensure we come to a solution that works for all interested parties and stakeholders.” The court order imposed restrictions on the cities of Hugo, Lake Elmo, Lino Lakes, Mahtomedi, North St. Paul, Oakdale, Stillwater, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and White Bear Township. In addition, it drew in those suburbs that receive water from St. Paul Regional Water Services. The judge’s order prohibited the DNR from issuing new or expanded groundwater appropriations until it could be determined that new uses were sustainable for future generations. Language addressing the court order was included in the Senate’s omnibus supplemental spending bill, SF 3141, approved a week earlier.

Bald Eagle ice out breaks record


Two municipalities unite in marriage The courtship was kept low-key, but now that they’ve tied the knot, the romance between White Bear Lake City Manager Ellen Richter and longtime White Bear Township Clerk/Treasurer Bill Short has been made public. The couple exchanged vows May 12 at Clockwerks Brewing & Event Center in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. They first met 27 years ago but the attraction started after their “first date” in August 2016, according to Short. They met for a beer to discuss a mutual work issue — the lake level lawsuit — and never opened their folders. She lives in White Bear Lake and he lives in Inver Grove Heights, so they are still discussing a permanent address, said Short, who added Richter’s spontaneity is one of the things he adores most. Each has children from a previous marriage.

Ice out for Bald Eagle Lake was May 2, breaking a 79-year record set in 1939. Bald Eagle Area Association board member Carole Moore said ice out was March 25 last year. In other Bald Eagle Lake news: • The group’s annual gala/fundraiser last month at Dellwood Country Club was a huge success, according to Moore. Proceeds will augment funds for weed control and boat launch inspection to keep zebra mussels out of Bald Eagle Lake. • Water quality goals were met too, last year. Water is clear enough to see your feet in 5 feet of water and state standards have been met for phosphorus content. The Rice Creek Watershed District treated Bald Eagle twice with alum in the past four years. Alum blocks phosphorus — one pound can generate 300 to 500 pounds of algae — and improves clarity. Part of the funding for the treatment is repaid through a property tax assessment. • A stormwater pond was added to capture and recycle dirty water at

BUILDER Licence. #1

Oneka Ridge Golf Course to reduce phosphorus flowing into Bald Eagle Lake. • Aquatic scientist Steve McComas reported that there are more native plants in the lake since the alum treatments took place, including native milfoil, pondweed and coontail. Native plants help stabilize the sediment, store phosphorus during summer, and provide fish habitat and food for invertebrates that eat algae. An invasive species called curly leaf pondweed has been treated since 1997. In 2017, 29 acres were treated using a contractor and guidance from McComas’ Blue Water Science plant studies. Heavy snowpack and late ice out both reduce production of the invasive weed. Regarding other invasive weeds, McComas said native milfoil and Eurasian milfoil have produced a hybrid. The hybrid acts more like Eurasian milfoil, which is treated with 2-4-D. There is a small amount of flow-

ering rush in the lake that is being manually removed by the watershed district. Starry stonewort is a macro algae that can kill a lake. it is not present in Bald Eagle. Zebra mussels have not been observed, but McComas expects the invasive mussel to infiltrate the lake. • During the annual meeting, watershed district outreach coordinator, Beth Carreno, said baffles will be installed this summer at St. Anthony Avenue and West Bald Eagle Boulevard and Park Avenue and East Bald Eagle Boulevard. The baffles are giant drums put underground to reduce phosphorus from entering the lake. The project also includes shoreline stabilization in those areas. When complete, the only evidence of the baffles will be manhole covers, Carreno noted. The tanks are vacuumed out once or twice a year, as needed. Debra Neutkens

Piece of Centerville Road to get major facelift BY MAGGIE STANWOOD CONTRIBUTING WRITER

WHITE BEAR TOWNSHIP — Work continues on the Centerville Road improvements. The White Bear Town Board of Supervisors received a feasibility report for the project at its May 7 meeting. The project is a collaboration between Ramsey County, the city of White Bear Lake and White Bear Township. The improvements would include construction of an additional northbound lane, installation of a traffic signal, and extension of a median from Meadowlands Drive to the new signal. The city of White Bear Lake, which is lead on the project, asked the town to share in the cost of the traffic signal. The project would also include roadway widening, turn lanes, stormwater improvements, curb and gutter and partial street reconstruction. The improvements are being done to improve traffic flow and safety. The estimated cost to the township for the signal is $75,000. The cost of the project overall is

$1.12 million. That total includes $246,000 for median construction; $273,000 for roadway improvements; $320,000 for traffic signal installation; $142,000 for engineering and $142,000 for bidding, construction management, inspection and testing. A consultant hired by the town found that the majority of improvement benefits would go to the properties on the east side of Centerville Road and those located within the city of White Bear Lake. There are nine properties on the west side of the road. The township will determine a preliminary opinion of benefits, if any, accruing to those properties. The consultant determined that only Cub Foods benefits from the improvements. The official public hearing will be held May 21, but one resident spoke at the meeting and said the township shouldn’t take on any of the cost because the improvements are being done to facilitate a development. “It’s still a work in progress right now, as far as I’m concerned,” said board member Ed Prudhon.

In other action, the Town Board: • Renewed the Institution Community Work Crew contract through October 2020. • Requested a comprehensive plan extension to March 2019 to the Metropolitan Council due to additional demographic and other necessary reports. • Approved an independent contract with Lisa Beecroft for $6,000 for consultant services related to her role as director and coordinator of Township Days and movies in the park from May 2018 to October 2018. • Approved a license agreement for construction of a Little Free Library at Brandlwood Park. Parents want to build and maintain the library as a memorial for their unborn daughter who died. • Replaced a city pickup truck with a 2018 Ford F-150 from Tenvoorde Ford for $28,893 with funding from the capital equipment fund. • Approved a quote from American Eagle Home Improvement in the amount of $5,275 with funding from the park improvement fund. The money is for the Fox Meadow park shelter roof.

City dispatchers receive tokens of thanks WHITE BEAR LAKE — Calling them “superheroes who keep our city safe,� Police Chief Julie Swanson paid tribute to several employees who lost their jobs as city dispatchers when the county 911 center took over emergency calls. The chief lauded the dispatchers, Angie Stewart, Wendy Colucci, Naomi Tiffany, for their dedication and skill level. The city’s dispatch center handled 29,000 calls for service in 2017 and “they have done this single-handedly,� Swanson said. “They have helped keep us safe.� Two other part-time dispatchers were also recognized. Ben Leibel will resume duties

as a community service officer and Police Officer John Sanders, who filled in as a dispatcher when needed, will return to his beat. Combined, the five have 78 years’ experience handling 911 calls. “This group has persevered through the transition to Ramsey County and we thank them for their professionalism,� Swanson said. Tiffany and Stewart plan to stay with the department. They will perform duties that can’t be transferred to Ramsey County and take on new responsibilities. Colucci is retiring. Debra Neutkens


Former city dispatchers (from left) Wendy Colucci, Angie Stewart and Naomi Tiffany received personalized shadow boxes from Police Chief Julie Swanson in appreciation of their service at the May 7 City Council meeting. Also recognized for taking 911 calls part time was officer John Sanders.

es; all come smashed and juicy. There’s the quarter pounder with proprietary cowbell sauce; a cheeseburger with optional housemade American cheese, and the spicy Durango, topped with a fried egg. For roast beef lovers, know this: the beef has cooked for hours in a special, humidity-controlled oven. There’s also brined and fried chicken, dredged with a secret seasoned flour and served on a sesame seed bun. For the veggie crowd, there’s the salad bowl and an O2E burger. That stands for Ode to Erin, the wife of owner and head chef Ben Pratt, who sticks to a gluten-free, vegetarian diet. Pratt also owns Ingredients Cafe, his upscale restaurant in the Crossroads mall across the street. Pratt and his dad, homebuilder and developer Len Pratt, started the project at 2125 Fourth St. last October. They gutted the building, formerly Red Lantern Sushi, and installed a new HVAC system and state-of-the-art, stainless steel kitchen. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week, but could change, Pratt said. He’s hoping the bar crowd will keep the place busy at the later hour. His restaurant shares a wall with White Bear Bar, so patrons will be able to order food and have it delivered. Carry-out is available and Burger Bar will cater to Door Dash, a restaurant delivery service for people who don’t want to leave their house or workplace. The dĂŠcor is described as urban industrial with warm colors and a feminine and masculine feel. There is California wine and craft beers on tap. Selling wine from a keg is new, pointed out Pratt, but something he’s excited to try. The restaurant owner and Mahtomedi father of two is nervous but upbeat that everything will be ready to roll on the 18th. “This is a different concept,â€? he maintained. “But I’m pumped. I’ve always wanted to do something like this — a fast, casual kind of restaurant.â€? Pratt has worked in a kitchen since high school and has been a chef since graduating from culinary school in 1999. He’s confident the garnishes, sauces and “perfect bunâ€? (from Uptown Ovens in Minneapolis) will produce the perfect burger.

Orange Blossom Honey muffins a winner

A Mahtomedi business owner can add a national claim to fame to her product label. Kathy Schwartz, owner of Brody’s 579 gluten-free muffins and mixes, received a Best New Product Sofi award from the Specialty Foods Industry for her certified gluten-free Orange Blossom Honey Muffins. Manager of Sales and Promotions Mary Ann Vanstrum said Schwartz was encouraged to enter the contest after receiving a great response to the product locally and at the San Francisco Specialty Foods Show. The White Bear Press published a story on Schwartz back in 2014. A registered dietitian, the mother of three endeavored to make a treat that every member of her family could enjoy at Christmas. Her nephew has celiac disease and an intolerance for gluten. Schwartz experimented on her own children and came up with a recipe for banana chocolate muffins that everyone loved. The secret was finding the right mix of gluten-free flours. She started selling the muffins at farmers markets and the business slowly grew from there. The name, Brody’s 579, comes from her nephew, who was 7 at the time, and the international medical numerical

Temperatures cooled down somewhat last week but it wasn’t anything we couldn’t handle. The weekend was pleasant enough, which included a couple big events — fishing opener and Mother’s Day. For much of the state the fishing opener was dry, but a bit on the cool side. If you were out of town, you missed an annoying light rain during the evening hours on Saturday. The rain, not heavy, was just enough to send you indoors for a spell. On Mother’s Day, Sunday, well you couldn’t have asked for better weather conditions….mostly sunny, low 70’s and light winds. Despite some hot temperatures to start the work week, we’re expecting some cooler temperatures for the weekend. Nothing we can’t handle.
