ESSAY CONTEST: Young writers go back in time PAGE 3A

Lake case sent back to district court BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

ST. PAUL — The ball is back in (retired) Judge Margaret Marrinan's court. In a decision filed June 5, a three-member appellate court denied the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) request for a stay pending appeal in the lake level lawsuit and sent the matter back to district court. The Court of Appeals wants the district judge to take another crack at her decision denying the defendant's motion to stay her 2017 order. Chief Judge Edward Cleary wrote that the “district court's analysis does not address the DNR's concerns about the time and expense of the contested-case proceedings, the inconsistent positions it will be required to take and the potential for inconsistent results.” The appeals judge was referring to the court-ordered conditions placed on municipal water appropriation permits by the DNR, which is also tasked with enforcing them. Those permit conditions include an irrigation ban if White Bear Lake's elevation is below 923.5 feet, a per capita limit on daily water usage and a surface water conversion plan. Communities impacted by the court order have wells within a 5-mile radius of the lake.

Antique outboards: beauty in eye of beholder BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

The first outboard was patented in 1866. Some 150 years later, only a few manufacturers remain of the 160 that entered the industry. Outboard companies like Caille, Waterman, Walnut, Lockwood, Motorgo, Gray and Ferro are all forgotten. But not by everyone. Members of the Antique and Outboard Motor Club Inc. (AOMCI) have not abandoned those bygone brands. The nonprofit organization, which has members worldwide, is devoted to people who are interested in preserving and restoring antique outboards. The Gopher Chapter of AOMCI is this year's featured group at the 2018 Manitou Days Boat Show.

“Each year we highlight one group or boat, type of boat or key display for our 'feature' for the show,” said Pat Oven, who heads up the annual event. Last year it was the Edina Model Yacht Club. The AOMCI has always been a great supporter of the show, now in its 13th year, he added. Founded in 1969, the Gopher Chapter has about 100 active members. The national group puts its membership at 3,000 from 14 countries. Dean Haynes is a 20-year chapter member. Now retired and living near Stillwater, he has a long history of working on outboards and wooden boats. He built boats alongside Adolph Amundson at the White Bear Lake Boat Yard, which was formerly Amundson Boat SEE OUTBOARDS, PAGE 8A

Loon Chronicles III: All in a day’s work It is amazing what can be accomplished in one day. Once again, we headed out at the crack of dawn to check on the progress of our Loon pairs. We spotted one pair in the Red Light District of the War Zone, trying desperately to lock in on a solid nesting site. With the elevated water levels and limited nesting habitat, finding a viable nesting site has become quite the land grab. We followed the pair to a rather precarious spot with minimal camouflage and out in the open water. After a brief head bobbing conference, the female led the male to the spot and the two of them worked together, at warp speed, to build the nest. After 20 minutes, the female had to take a break, and the male went to town to get the nest built. We had to head home to beat the rain. Much was accomplished while we were away. We returned at sunset to find the female on the nest tending to two large eggs and playing catch up on building the nest. The male watched from afar and appeared totally exhausted from the day’s nest building activities. We returned this morning, and found the new parents watching the nest and tending the eggs. Len installed a DNR “Loon Nesting” buoy near the nest to help guide boat traffic around the new family in the making. The fishing boats and kayaks have been terrific about staying clear of the new nest. Hopefully, the pontoons and bigger boats will see the buoy and do the same. 26 more days!

Do you like to swim? Now you can cool off in the blue refreshing water of White Bear Lake. Is your wagon wheel broken? Never use your wagon again when you can take a quick and easy twenty minute train ride from St. Paul to fun! Take an adventure on the fast track to White Bear Lake! All aboard the brand new Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad!

1871 Newspaper: The Railroad that Changed Minnesota BY ISABELLA FEMRITE CENTRAL MIDDLE SCHOOL, SIXTH GRADE

The railroad that now stretches from St. Paul to Duluth was at fi rst believed by many to be impossible. However, the construction team finally proved the critics wrong. After over three years of development, the railroad tracks have now reached Duluth. Many who have traveled on this railroad have only compliments and admiration for the hard-working team that was able to put it there. One passenger said, “It’s the best thing to happen since the telephone,” which others thought was an exaggeration. The railroad also reaches through White Bear Lake, and there is no doubt that it is the reason for the sudden incline in the number of visitors. The access to the area containing the lake is also greatly expanded, as the new railroad passes close by it. Most people greatly appreciate this new addition. It gives people the option to take a short,

smooth ride by train rather than a lengthy, jarring wagon ride to their destination. It takes around a mere two and a half hours to travel 151.9 miles on the trains that are lucky enough to travel on this track, and the passengers that ride enjoy lush carpeting, card tables, padded seats, and of course, amazing customer service. The use of all railroads is escalating, quadrupling even, and the fact that the railroad passes and even goes through amazing scenery only heightens most people’s desires to ride. Going through the beautiful Forest Lake, White Bear, Hinckley, and more, you are sure to see some amazing sights along this rail line. A majority of former passengers have predicted that it will be used for many years to come.

Happy New Life BY JEMAL JUMAYEVA MATOSKA INTERNATIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, KINDERGARTEN

Once upon a time, there was a boy named Levi. When he was 10 years old, war came to China where he lived with his mom, his dad, and grandma and his baby sister Kayla. He was so scared. He moved with his family to America. He came to a place called St. Paul, Minnesota. When they arrived in America, they took a train to go to White Bear Lake where it was safe. Levi thought the train was so fast and so big and fat! Along the way he saw cows and sheep and horses and opossums. He had never seen these animals before in China. He wished to ride a horse. When he arrived in White Bear Lake he was so excited because he thought he would see a white bear. Levi said to his mom, “I hope we see a white bear!” The train dropped the family off in White Bear Lake. He searched everywhere for 100 hours for a white bear. He searched the forest. Finally, his mom told him he could only fi nd a bear at the zoo. Levi said, “Why is this place called White Bear Lake if no bears live here?” She told him the city was in the shape of a bear and there are lakes. Levi liked his new life in White Bear Lake! The End.

Taking a Trip on a Train BY COLIN GREENE LINCOLN ELEMENTARY, THIRD GRADE

Hello my name is George and I’m taking a trip on the new White Bear Lake train for a lake vacation. I am 10 years old, I live in St. Paul and I like going over to my friend’s house and asking if I can play tag. I’m looking forward to taking a trip on the hopefully-smooth train ride instead of a 3-hour unpleasant wagon ride. I’ve heard that it takes only 20 minutes, but I don't think that's even possible. As I step on to the train I get a chill down my spine. I am scared. I think, what if something goes wrong? At the same time, I wonder, will it actually get me there in 20 minutes? As I step on, I notice that the train is just as big in the inside as on the outside. Just as I sit down next to my mom, it starts moving. It moves slowly at first and then goes faster and faster. I’m amazed and I start to believe that we’ll get there in 20 minutes. As I’m riding, I start getting calmer and less scared. But suddenly I feel someone tapping on my back. I quickly spin around to see a lady with a cart. She asks us if we would like any refreshments. Before I can say anything, my mom asks how much it is and the lady quickly explains the prices. My mom says no and I’m pretty sad. My mom says that I can get a piece of candy if I will do a few chores when we get back. I agree and I get some horehound candy as my mom pulls out a two cent coin. When I look out of the window I notice that we’re slowing down. We must be at White Bear Lake! I see a bunch of people by a lake. As I step out of the train I ask my mom how long I’ve been on the train. She answers 19 minutes.

Celebrating 27 years in White Bear Lake!

Apps you should know about

T

he Sarasota County Sheriffs office in Florida issued a warning about smart phone “apps that parents should know about.” It’s not that children shouldn’t have apps, rather parents should know what the app is normally used for. It’s a good awareness campaign and you might fi nd these apps alarming. The nine apps include Bumble, described to be like the dating app Tinder except it requires the woman to make the fi rst contact. Liveme is a live streaming video site that uses geo locations and allows users to earn coins as a way to pay minors for photos. ask.fm has a history with cyber Publisher’s bullying through anonymous question seeking. View Snapchat is said to be the most popular app, where users can Carter Johnson post photos and videos that will disappear, and it also has a geo location allowing people to see the user’s location. HOLLA is a video chat app connecting people around the world, and reviews mention explicit content and racial slurs. Calculator% is a common secret app that helps people hide photos and video files and internet search history. Kik allows direct contact to kids and children by bypassing normal messaging features. Whisper is a network that promotes anonymous social groups to share secrets with strangers and also has a geo location function. Hot or Not is a hook-up with strangers site. Although only nine apps were reviewed, there are an estimated 3.8 million apps for Android users and more than 2 million in the Apples app store. As a family, we have allowed our children access to smart phones and iPads but we are struggling to know what apps to allow. We visit with other parents and decided to allow Snapchat. It tends to be the most universal app for connecting with friends and the content being communicated has seemed fairly innocent. We do spot check their text messages and the apps they are using. I love the new apps that allow parents to shut down a child’s phone based on time or at a push of a button. It still allows phone access. As a family, set a plan for screen time and electronic devices and stick with it. Technology will only become more prevalent and can have great benefits, but we need to help our kids navigate it appropriately while helping them develop good habits in areas like a healthy diet, exercise and studying. Coffee shop etiquette Local coffee shops continue to be the new remote office, hang out and a place to grab free wifi. Providing an inviting, comfortable spot for groups to gather to discuss the issues of the day or a table for a traveling business person to plug in a laptop has probably done much to keep the coffee shop business alive. However, the main thing keeping it alive is when the people who hang out for a couple of hours actually buy something, like coffee. I’ve spoken with many coffee shop operators who comment that their biggest challenge is selling goods to customers who sit and chat for hours or use their place as an office. Some “customers” don’t even order a single cup of coffee or beverage. I heard about a customer who brought in a muffin from a neighboring establishment or their own tea bag and asked the server for a free cup of hot water. The next time you meet up with a group of friends at your favorite neighborhood coffee shop, order a breakfast sandwich with your latte and leave a tip.

Help your garden become a natural oasis

T

here’s no such thing as a free lunch but, if you know where to look, you might get free (or discounted) plants for a garden instead. The east metro area is home to more than 200 lakes, dozens of streams, countless wetlands and the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers. Watershed Districts and soil and water conservation districts work hard to protect Movers and these many waterways from runoff Shakers pollution, erosion and other sources Angie Hong of contamination. However, because 80 percent of the land in Minnesota is privately owned, private landowners are a critical part of the clean-water equation as well. That’s why local partners provide a variety of incentive and assistance programs to help residents and property owners improve habitat and protect water resources with raingardens, stream and lake buffers, prairies, woodland plantings, pollinator gardens and other clean-water projects. By planting trees, shrubs and deep-rooted native plants, home-

owners help rain to soak into the ground so that it recharges groundwater aquifers instead of running off into storm sewers or waterways. The deep roots of these plants also act as natural erosion control, which is especially helpful on hillsides and shorelines. Raingardens can feature a variety of native or perennial flowers and grasses and are designed to catch runoff from rooftops, driveways and roads so that the water has time to soak into the ground or evaporate instead of running off. In addition to helping water, these natural landscaping projects provide habitat for birds and pollinators and beautify yards large and small. Here is a breakdown of programs and upcoming events to help you get started on a clean-water garden of your own: • Free site visits: The Washington Conservation District (WCD) offers free site visits to anyone in Washington County, including homeowners, large property owners, agricultural producers and businesses. During the visit, staff can identify best locations for planting projects and provide information about available grants. The WCD also provides designs and technical assistance for planting projects.

Request a visit at www.mnwcd. org or 651-330-8220 x35. • Stewardship grants: Local watershed management organizations offer grants to support clean-water planting projects. The amount of the grants varies depending on the size and water-quality benefit of the project, but they will generally provide $500-$15,000 toward the purchase of plants, mulch, materials and contract labor for raingardens, shoreline restoration and agricultural projects. To fi nd your watershed, go to cleanwatermn. org and use the map at the bottom of the page. • Rain barrel and compost bin discounts: Washington County is currently selling rain barrels and compost bins in partnership with the Recycling Association of Minnesota. Rain barrels are $59 for county residents ($79 for non-residents) and compost bins are $44 for residents ($64 for non-residents). Order on-line at www.co.washington. mn.us/2813/Backyard-Composting and pick up at the Environmental Center in Woodbury. Angie Hong is an educator for East Metro Water; www.mnwcd. org/emwrep.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Di Dismayed d th thatt d downtown t bookstore losing lease

I am dismayed to learn that the lease of Lake Country Booksellers, at the corner of Fourth Street and Washington Square, is scheduled to not be renewed. Having been a regular customer of this unique bookstore for many years, I have really appreciated having a local bookstore with friendly, personal staff who are passionate about sharing quality literature and contributing so much to the community, including hosting book-signing events. Lake Country Booksellers is the main reason I come to White Bear Lake, and then do other shopping and dining while in town. It is a local treasure that contributes to making White Bear Lake the vibrant community that it is. It is my hope that with local community support, the leaseholder Tyler Conrad, who owns several other shops downtown would reconsider keeping Lake Country Booksellers in its present space by renewing the lease, for the sake of its many customers and the White Bear Lake Community. Carol Sorensen Forest Lake

Strangers pitch in to nab puppy named Todd

I just want to give a big shout-out to the amazing people in White Bear Lake. On June 5, I was watching my friends rescue puppy named “Todd”. Todd escaped from my house and I started running after him ... no shoes on ... just knowing I needed to find Todd. My neighbor asked to help and began running after Todd. After a half a mile, I went back home and got my car to continue on. Pretty soon, people were stopping their cars or were on foot asking if they could help. I said yes! Eventually I stopped my car, left it running with the door open and continued on foot. A wonderful police officer guarded my car until I returned. I got up to Subway and saw Todd had already crossed Hwy. 61! I ran over the railroad tracks

and 61, d iinto t Hwy. H 61 stopping t i traffi t ffic tto gett across. More people started in pursuit of Todd. Eventually a darling girl named Kaitlyn nabbed him. A woman Kaitlyn knew gave us rides back to our cars. The police officer was still waiting for me and guarding my car! I cannot begin to thank everyone who helped me find Todd. We are both doing OK ... Todd is tired and I am sore. Thanking God for a happy ending. White Bear Lake rocks! Mary Miller White Bear Lake

Bookstore within a store

During my last visit to the Lake Country Book Store I was dismayed to find out that they will be losing their lease next winter. This wonderful independent bookstore has been an integral part of the White Bear community for over 30 years providing excellent individualized service. I understand that things change over time and that the property owner has every right to do what he sees is in the best interest of his business. Nonetheless, I think it would be a great loss to the community to lose such a fine community asset and I would respectfully like to propose a potential solution. I understand that there is to be a garden store in the space and spaces adjacent to it. If so, perhaps the bookstore could be incorporated somewhere within the proposed garden store. This would certainly be a unique concept and quite likely a win-win solution. John Soucheray, MD Shoreview

No polar bears in Minnesota

Your article on the White Bear Lake legend reminded me: About 20 years ago, a group of Dakota gave a drum ceremony for our Cub Scouts. At one point the leader paused and said: “And lose the polar bears, folks. A ‘white bear’ is a mature grizzly. There have never been polar bears in Minnesota.” Michael Jones White Bear Lake

C Commission i i tto di discuss apartment building

Lett nature L t ttake k it its course

Vadnais Heights residents — The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, June 26, at City Hall on a request to rezone the property on the corner of County Road F and Centerville Road to a PUD (planned unit development) to build a five-story, 156-unit apartment building with 15 detached garages on that site. For comparison purposes — the complex under construction on Vadnais Boulevard and Rice Street is a five-story building. After the public hearing by the Planning Commission, recommendations will be sent to the City Council for its review and vote, possibly on Tuesday, July 17, at 7 p.m. at City Hall. To make your voice heard and your concerns addressed, please plan to attend the public hearing and the subsequent council meeting/or contact your voting council members. The council members’ email addresses and phone numbers are located on the city’s website. Please follow the Vadnais Heights paper for official public hearing notifications. Notices are located before the ads, second section of the paper. Gary Nelson, Marilyn Auge Vadnais Heights

No paper trail

Regarding the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Reports for Vadnais Heights in the June 6 edition concerning the roofing company foreman who lost cash to be paid in wages to the employees: No paper trail for income, state and federal taxes paid, Social Security paid (by both parties), Medicare paid, and possibly other deductions. With no reportable income, it’s easy to claim welfare, free medical, SNAP and other taxpayer-funded benefits. Does anyone besides me see a red flag waving? Daniel Jesh Vadnais Heights

An old acquaintance who lives in Mahtomedi called me the other day. He knew I was a naturalist who kept great-horned owls and orphaned opossum babies among multiple other truly injured, orphaned or mysterious wild critters. I have fielded countless questions and calls about wildlife and I’ve learned a lot about people-wildlife dynamics. When Jeff called, his heartfelt concern was for a fawn lying in his yard. “It’s wet, its eyes are open, it’s panting and so helpless. What should I do?” he asked. “Where is it now?” I asked him. “On my lap. I’m trying to give it milk.” He assured me the fawn, which was the size of a cat, wasn’t injured. Deer are in his yard all the time, he said. I told him the fawn was likely born in his yard a couple hours ago and still wet from birth. It does not move or call (bleat) because that would attract predators. I advised him to carefully return it exactly where he found it, whether it was sun or shade, and leave. I suggested he watch it for the next four hours from a distant spot, best in the house through a window or door, and to not approach it. “I think the mother will be back,” I said. It’s normal for mother deer of new fawns to feed them and leave. If by dark the mother did not return and the fawn was truly abandoned, I suggested he call the Wildlife Rehab Center and tell them the exact story he told me. Sure enough, the mother returned early that evening, got the baby and left. Sometimes natural processes will do more to save or serve these creatures than our best efforts. Not always, but often. Think carefully before you intervene. Then if you’re sure you are the last, likely resort, call the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Minnesota or the University of Minnesota Raptor Center or a veterinarian to keep the relationships between people and wildlife as good as they can be. And thanks for caring. Jim Malkowski Pine Springs

For various reasons, city staff has been unable to collect $68,620 in payments from parties using ambulance services from 2009-2011, The city has exhausted all methods, including collection agencies, to retrieve payment from individuals who have either moved, don't have the money or who have since died with no avenue for collection from the state. "We're not ever going to see this revenue," Finance Director Scott Schaefer said, "the unretrieved funds would just hang out on the balance sheet indefinitely, as they did in 2007-2008." • Approved firefighter housing lease agreements for two new tenants moving into the housing at 196 and 198 Hallam Ave. by the beginning of June. Fire Chief Terry Fischer said that providing housing for firefighters helps the city in recruitment. The council next meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at City Hall, 600 Stillwater Road.

RAMSEY COUNTY SHERIFF REPORTS The Ramsey County Sheriff's Offi ce reported the following incidents:

Vadnais Heights • A 26-year-old Witt Court woman with a swollen eye called 911 the afternoon of May 30 to report that her boyfriend had punched her in the face. Deputies picked up the 25-year-old Minneapolis man on assault charges and delivered him to the county jail. • Deputies turned down the soul-pulverizing sounds of teen music emanating from a trailer on Star Circle the night of May 30. Mom was asked to monitor the situation. • Two bottles of wine and a pocket knife went missing from a vehicle “possibly left unlocked” and parked overnight May 30 in the 3600 block of Oak Creek Terrace. • A thief made off with a recently purchased bike from an attached garage the night of May 31 in the 3400 block of Valento Circle. The victim suspects the former owner of the two-wheeler, because he still owes the White Bear Lake man a balance of $200 for the bike, which also came with one flat tire. • A panhandling family of four — two adults and two small children — were reported asking shoppers exiting Festival Foods on County Road E for money. The family was possibly living out of a van with Tennessee plates found in the area. Dad, 42, of Lake Alfred, Florida, was cited for panhandling. • A “quick-change artist” found running away from Walmart was apprehended the evening

of June 1 after a cashier at the store realized she had been duped and reported it to management, who called 911. The suspect, a 50-year-old Chicago man, had a little over $1,000 on him, the same amount that was missing from the cashier’s till. The thief, who has a lengthy Illinois criminal record, was booked into jail on a felony theft charge. • A Centerville Road resident called the night of June 2 to report a friendly domestic rabbit in his backyard that “will eat strawberries from your hand.” The rabbit has been in his yard several times in this past year (no wonder!) and he’s requesting that the bunny be picked up. The man was advised to call back during business hours. • A man reported he must have dropped his wallet in the Walmart parking lot the night of June 3 because he didn’t have it the morning of June 4. What he did have were seven area hits to his debit card that he didn’t recognize, for a total of $337. One charge, for $1 at RedBox, was for a movie the company did not expect to be returned. • Deputies responded to reports of items being thrown around June 3 at a residence on Jay Way. Video showed a 35-year-old woman throwing drinks at her husband. The suspect, who had a record of threatening the 45-year-old man in the past with cutlery, was booked into jail on a fifth-degree domestic assault charge.

White Bear Township • Three adults and a teen were found the evening

of May 30 with a tent erected in Columbia Park on Highway 96 where they planned to spend the night. The female teen’s father was contacted, and he picked her up. The three adults, ages 18, 19 and 20, out of White Bear Township, Maplewood and White Bear Lake, respectively, were strongly informed by a deputy that it is illegal to camp in Columbia Park. • A juvenile student was released to parents after assaulting a teacher on May 31. No other information was released. • A caller informed 911 that he was in the company of an injured duck on the side of Centerville Road in the 5600 block the afternoon of June 1. “[The duck] is even letting me pet it,” the caller said, and offered to give the duck, who was probably seeing stars, a ride to the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Roseville. • A pair of juvenile males spotted at Bellaire Beach on South Shore Boulevard in the early morning hours of June 2, facing charges of possession of pot, alcohol and drug paraphernalia, were transported home and released to their parents. • Funny money was passed at Cub Foods on Meadowlands Drive at some point on June 2 and discovered in the late-night hours. The bogus bills, a 10 and two 20s, will be turned over to the U.S. Secret Service. • A vehicle and a motorcycle collided the evening of June 5 at the intersection of Highway 96 and Centerville Road. The 59-year-old man on the bike was treated by White Bear Lake EMS and released. No tags.

Law enforcement welcome at fi fth-grade graduation Oneka Elementary students held their fifth-grade graduation June 6, and the Washington County sheriff was there. Sheriff Dan Starry and DARE instructor Deputy Kelly Olson both attended the ceremony in Hugo. Principal Terry Dahlem welcomed the 175 students and their parents, thanking them for their hard work and dedication over the past school year. Deputy Olson spoke about the impact DARE had on her youthful experiences, how knowledge gained through DARE infl uenced her choices, and later solidified her desire to become a police officer. Olson also announced the winners of this year’s DARE essay contests: Aida Thiam, Lauryn Chaffee, Paige Sogard, Charles Racine, Mason Noren and Cleo Jurkovich. Each winner

received a gold medal and read their essay in front of a packed audience. In a nod to coming full circle, Sheriff Starry acknowledged that at one point he was a fifth-grade DARE instructor at the school. “I have witnessed the positive relationships the DARE program fosters between students and deputies. It provides an excellent setting to open up conversations and build problem-solving skills around real-life situations such as bullying and internet security,” he said. The sheriff advised the students to “make good choices.” Addressing the fi fth-grade class with some words of advice, the sheriff said, “There is no one like you; you are unique, so embrace it, and use what you have learned in this school to continue to make good choices.”

Flag Day etiquette you should know Respectfully disposing of the Flag

The proper way to get rid of a fl ag is to burn it. Making sure the flag-burning ceremony honors and follows the Flag Code is an easy but needs to be done with caution. The way the ceremony should go is by folding the flag in its customary manner, making sure the fi re is not too big, placing the folded fl ag in the fi re and safely extinguishing the fi re as the guests attending the ceremony salute the fl ag and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. A moment of silence should follow.

Displaying the Flag

There is no penalty for placing the fl ag that go against the guidelines, but to display the fl ag the way it is intended the American Legion has some suggestions. Some of the suggestions include not allowing the fl ag to touch the ground, not flying the fl ag at night unless it is properly lit, folding the fl ag in the shape of a triangle and displaying the fl ag vertically when it is not on a staff.

Flying the Flag at half-staffed

When the president or governor orders the flag to be at half-staffed it is suggested that you follow orders. It is tradition to fly the American flag at

half-staffed during times of national mourning and signifies a monumental loss that has occurred in our country. Before fi nding its position at half-staffed, a fl ag must be briefly held at its peak for an instant and then lowered to its halfstaffed position. This process is repeated then when the flag is taken down for the day.

History in sports

The anthem, fl ag and American sports have a long and meaningful relationship. It was Sept. 5, 1918, during the fi rst game of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs when the tradition of playing the song during sporting events began. The country was in the midst of World War I and Chicago suffered a bombing only a day earlier. The mood was somber. During the seventh-inning stretch, the United States Navy band played “The Star-Spangled Banner” everyone sang along. The sense of much-needed unity was so powerful that baseball stadiums began incorporating the anthem as a part of the game. Complied by Conrad Engstrom

OUTBOARDS: Motor Club is this year’s featured attraction at 13th annual Boat Show FROM PAGE 1A

IF YOU GO: Th k Cl i & Vi t The 13th annuall Whit White B Bear L Lake Classic Vintage Boat Show is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 23 on Lake Avenue in front of the White Bear Shopping Center. Free.

Works, and owns an Amundson rowboat. “Adolf was one of my mentors in life when I was in my 20s. It was a perfect boat to row,” said Haynes, 76. One of his most rare motors is a 1929 Evinrude Elto Ruddertwin that was used on wooden rowboats like those built on the shores of White Bear Lake. “These Norwegian-style rowboats were built in the early days prior to outboards,” Haynes said. “When (Norwegian-born) Ole Evinrude came along, he started making outboards with a big rudder to put on these rowboats. You had to sit in the middle of the boat for stability and steer with a rope.” Amundson Boat Works, Haynes noted, was one of the fi rst Johnson outboard dealers in Minnesota. The antique motor aficionado is especially attracted to outboards from the late '40s and early '50s. The Elto is one of his oldest. “It's an addiction, I have to admit,” Haynes said. “I have a fondness for them. I'm around these guys who have the same problem, and we get carried away. I tell people we should start another club called Outboard Motors Anonymous. I'm running out of places to put this stuff.” Haynes said members are dedicated to keeping the old relics running. “It's history. It's like the guys with their old threshing machines.” The antique motor collector worries that no one will continue the old timers' love affairs with outboards. “When I'm gone, I'm not sure who will do it,” Haynes said. “A goal is to attract young people to the club. They'd rather hop on a jet ski and zoom across the lake than work on an old motor. An objective at the boat show is to explain what is going on with outboard motors and why we're doing this. We want to keep the interest going.” One of the chapter co-founders is Bob Peterson, who has about 400 motors at home, “give or take 100.” The Hugo resident had a showroom/museum at White Bear Mall on Third Street for about a year in 2014 but has since moved his collection to a large space in his son's White Bear plumbing shop. People always ask him to help restore or fi x old motors, some that have been in the family for years. “That is gratifying,” Peterson said. Looking around at his collection, he admitted, “There is so much history, I don't know where to start.”

LAKE LITIGATION: Appellate court says judge’s decision put DNR in conflicting position FROM PAGE 1A

“The district court's fi ndings do not reflect that it fully considered the DNR's concern over multiplicity of litigation,” wrote Cleary. “The history of violating the law relied upon by the district court in this case is the very conduct at issue in this litigation and the DNR disputes that its conduct violated the law.” The DNR states that 43 permits have been amended, which in turn has led to the initiation of 18 contested case proceedings, the judge pointed out. In those contested case hearings, “the DNR will be required to defend permit requirements that it will simultaneously be arguing are not justified by the facts or law in this appeal. The district court rejected the DNR's arguments that this multiplicity of litigation warranted a stay, stating only 'The fact is that while the DNR may disagree with the Court's Order, it is required to follow and enforce it.'” The appellate panel didn't feel that

statement adequately addressed the DNR's concerns regarding the conflicting position in which Marrinan's order placed the agency. The parties will also have an opportunity to be heard on the effect of 2018 Minn. Laws Ch. 181 on the stay analysis, Cleary said. That law, passed last month, stops the DNR from implementing the four court-ordered conditions placed on water appropriation permit holders until July 2019. It was noted in the brief that the district court has not had opportunity to address the impact of the new law “on the propriety of granting a stay and the parties have not briefed the effect of the new law to the appellate court.” Cleary continued: “Because the new law may affect the analysis of whether a stay is appropriate, we conclude that it is appropriate to remand to district court for reconsideration of the stay motion.” The DNR and its commissioner, and intervenors including the city

At press time, Hugo, North St. Paul, Lake Elmo and Stillwater have entered petitions to file amicus, or friend of the court, briefs on the side of the DNR. All are impacted by the court order. Amicus status allows a city to provide input into the appeal proceedings. Hugo City Attorney Dave Snyder explained to the City Council last month that the status means Hugo can offer views on the impact of the court ruling “and that it was in error.” The city’s arguments will focus on Hugo’s efforts in water conservation, Snyder said. “The court order is in many ways counterproductive in those efforts,” he told council. “We plan to rebut claims and suggestions by the plaintiff and trial court that cities have not been mindful of water use.” Hugo Mayor Tom Weidt noted that the city has stayed out of the lawsuit to this point but “it was time for Hugo to tell its side of the story.”

The district court agreed with the plaintiff's claims that the DNR violated statutory requirements and the public trust doctrine by making

water appropriation permit decisions that lowered the elevation of White Bear Lake. A post-trial motion to stay her order pending appeal was denied March 29 by Marrinan. The office of the attorney general then fi led a formal appeal May 11 on behalf of the DNR to reverse her decision.

Town clerk retiring BY DEBRA NEUTKENS EDITOR

White Bear Township Clerk/Treasurer Bill Short always told the board he planned to retire by the age of 70. Well, the time has come. Short will be 69 on June 26. After 30 years of guiding the township through expansion — both economic and population, which doubled — his long tenure will end by end of year, maybe sooner. A timeline provided by a headhunting firm selected Oct. 22 as the date his replacement will begin employment. What Works Inc. is the executive search firm hired by the Town Board to assist with the transition. An all-inclusive search fee of $15,000 was approved June 4. The search begins June 18. The announcement of his retirement wasn't official when the Town Board hired a consultant, but Short said he stated his intentions well in advance. Asked why he didn't retire earlier, the town's top staffer gave several reasons. Short had children late in life, for one, and wanted to make sure his two sons were out of college and at a point of independence before he considered taking Social Security. The second, more obvious, reason is because he loves the job. “Our town supervisors are fabulous,” Short said. “They are really good guys who got elected to serve the people and it's been that way for a long time. Our staff works well together, too. The people I deal with are like family. Maybe better.” Admittedly, Short is a little reluctant to use the R-word. Is it hard for him to come to terms with retirement? “Yes, but it's my choice,” he maintained. “Nothing is driving me out. My health is good. It's just time. I'm at a point in time to pursue other things, once I figure them out.” His announcement represents another recent change in his life, added Short. In May, he remarried after being single for nine years. You could say the two newlyweds have a lot in common: Short's new wife is Ellen Richter, White Bear Lake city manager. Do they talk about work at home? “Every day,” he said. “I'm a good listener.” Short graduated from the University of Minnesota as a landscape architect in '73. He grew up in Roseville; his father Roger Short was co-founder and president of SEH Engineering, a wellknown firm in Vadnais Heights. As a student intern, Short prepared the first concept plan for Tamarack Park's open space and presented it to the Town Board, little knowing he would someday be back behind the dais. After working several years for a landscaping business in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Short returned to Minnesota and landed a job with a company that provided city planning services. The township was a client. Short ended up completing the town’s first Comprehensive Plan in '75 and became the township's planning consultant. Nine years later, he went

back to Florida to work for a landscape construction firm in Tampa. It was 1988 when the township called. They were looking for a full-time planner. When the town treasurer left soon after, Short was appointed in the interim. He was hired as clerk/treasurer in January 1991. Parts of the job are starting to wear thin, like handling complaints between neighbors who insist the town do something. “It's a real sense of accomplishment when it goes away,” he said. Most gratifying has been participating in the township's tremendous growth. Despite the town’s reduction in land mass, its population has more than doubled, from 5,000 people in 1988 to almost 12,000 today. “When I delivered the first Comp Plan, the township was 40 percent developed. Today it's 99 percent developed. There was little industry in 1988. What you see around us was all done after.” That's not to say the town is all warehouses, strip malls and parking lots. Despite the fact the township has gone from 36 square miles to 10, there are 1,300 acres of permanent Ramsey County open space and 190 acres of township parks and undeveloped green space. At the time he leaves, there will be some unfinished business. The lake lawsuit will likely not be settled, South Shore Boulevard and Bald Eagle Lake trails will not be completed, and as the town has aged, so has its streets and utilities. “Roads need to be addressed,” Short said. “As the township has grown, the expectation of residents has evolved. We are changing from a cost-efficient rural character to providing a higher degree of service.” Proud of his legacy, Short acknowledged the town's emphasis on fiscal responsibility and collaboration. “We abut 10 cities. We get along with all of them and have cooperative agreements with many. That has been good for the township and good for those we cooperate with. Cooperation is something the Town Board wants to continue to feature.” He does worry a bit that his title could deter new candidates. “I am concerned that the word 'clerk' will automatically turn people off who are in the city management business. But it is not derogatory,” Short noted. “White Bear Township is unique. There are no other townships in the state like us. Plus, there are only three supervisors, so it's less complicated and more efficient to move and implement policy. It makes this an attractive place to work.” So what will he do with all his free time? “Well, my wife will be working a lot, so I have to find something to do. I may take up handball again and there are always more demands at my church. “And I have never taken a two-week vacation.” It's not that he's a dyed-in-thewool workaholic, added Short. He just never got around to it.

In their latest newsletter, store co-owner Susie Fruncillo said the landlord wants the corner space. “This is very sad news for us and for our faithful customers,” she wrote. Fruncillo went on to say the four female owners are searching for space in downtown White Bear Lake to move the book store at a “rent we can afford.” Their lease expires January 2019. Co-owner Nancy Thysell acknowledged that Goodthings owner Tyler Conrad owns the building and it's his prerogative as to what to do with the space. He offered to extend the lease, but the women decided they couldn't afford the rent increase that went with it. “We're exploring our options,” Thysell said. “We love the business, we love the community and we love sharing our books. We want the bookstore to continue.” Asked his future plans, Conrad said he'd like to expand Goodthings' selection of garden-related and bird items into the retail space. “We plan to offer fresh-cut floral, a larger variety of bird

feeders and more garden art; perhaps outdoor furniture.” He bought the corner building, which includes GoodStyle, the book store and Cobblestone Cafe, in 2014. Meanwhile, Lake Country will continue its Friday morning book signings during the Farmer's Market. Next up is author Carol MacAllister, who will be signing her three books June 29.

Renovated buildings slated for retail

What was once Elle boutique and the Flying Disc store on the northeast corner of County Road E and 120 by Wildwood Shopping Center are now shells of buildings ready for rehab. The city of White Bear Lake property at 993/995 Wildwood Road changed hands recently, according to Community Development Director Anne Kane, and owner Brett King is hoping to attract retail or a restaurant to the space. No tenants have been lined up at this point, she added. King said he'd be happy to talk about his plans once the renovations are done, which should take about six weeks. Debra Neutkens

It’s that season again:road construction BY LORETTA HARDING CONTRIBUTING WRITER

MAHTOMEDI — Now that the spring snow has melted, city engineers and road construction contractors have sprung into action to get outdoor work done during a season of unknown duration. The Mahtomedi City Council at its June 5 meeting heard updates on projects currently underway and those planned for the future. Mike Brooks, Ramsey County co-chair of the Lake Links Association, attended the meeting to announce the passing of legislation that will provide $2.6 million for trail work along the south shore of White Bear Lake and $1.4 million for trail work in Mahtomedi and Birchwood. In addition, the Legislature gave $22,000 to cities along the north shore of the lake to pay for their part of trail expenses. Brooks thanked Sen. Chuck Wiger and Rep. Peter Fischer for their “marvelous support” in helping to pass the funding bill. Brooks said he and his supporters wore bright T-shirts at the Capitol, and “that makes a big difference.” Although the organization asked for $8.8 million and received half that amount, Councilman Steve Wolgamot, Washington County co-chair of Lake Links, said that because the Lake Link project has now received funding, it will be perceived as a legitimate project and have an easier time receiving additional funding the second time around. Council also approved a proposal from its engineering firm, WSB and Associates, to conduct a study of Highway 244 to estimate the cost for roadway reconstruction, ad-

dress utility concerns and consider the possibility of trail or sidewalk segments. The study, which is not to exceed $14,000, will also determine the best fit for a reconstructed roadway segment in terms of width, curbing and storm sewer. City staff has been in contact with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to discuss the possible turnback of a segment of Highway 244 to the city. The segment in question runs from Veteran’s Memorial Park northward to the Dellwood border. The study will provide a basis for future cost-sharing discussions with MnDOT on the turnback topic and a possible road upgrade. Discussion also includes the condition and upgrade of the 1930s-vintage water main under the that stretch of pavement. Water modeling will be used to determine whether the water main could have segments removed entirely and still maintain fire flows and pressure standards for the overall system. Removing segments of the water main in lieu of the entire pipe length would save a great deal of money, City Engineer John Sachi said. That stretch of Highway 244 would likely be reconstructed as an urban section, he noted, which reduces the lane and shoulder widths and includes concrete curb and gutter — maybe even a sidewalk. The design would also follow Municipal State Aid (MSA) standards, as turnback roads are eligible for MSA funding, which comes from the state’s Highway User Tax Distribution fund. The study is expected to be complete by the end of the summer. Sachi closed the meeting by updating council on projects currently underway, including the 2018 Historic District Phase III utility improvements. After the Historic District improvements are completed, that contractor

will start the Edgecumbe drainage project, likely in about three to four weeks, Sachi said. Quail Street utilities are all in and will be tested later in the week. After testing, service lines will be installed. Briarwood Street is left to do. Sachi said the residents been very easy to deal with, despite rough conditions due to the rain. By the second week in June, the rest of the roads in the project will be reclaimed except for Dwinnell Street, which will be saved for last. Four lines of the sewer lining project have been done so far; the rest of the project expected to be completed within two weeks, the engineer reported. Annual televising has all been completed for this year, and now the tapes will be reviewed to select the best candidates for upgrades. Seal coating and crack sealing has not started yet. Trail and street rating has started and will take from five to six weeks to complete. Every foot of street and trail in the city will be walked and will receive a rating, which the city will use to develop future capital improvement projects. Evaluation of storm sewer outlets and ponds will start during the second week in June. Ten ponds have been selected for study to measure depth compared with historical depth to see if there have been deposits that need removal. In the Cedarleaf development, curbing was supposed to have been completed by the end of the fi rst week in June, followed by paving. The County Road 12 project design is going ahead. WSB will prepare a plan sheet for water main and sanitary sewer repairs for Mahtomedi to upgrade the storm sewer as part of the Glenmar Avenue project. That project is scheduled to start next May.

Bear trackmen score in four state events; 4x800 relay breaks 1975 school record BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

Breaking a school relay record that’s stood for 43 years was the highlight for the White Bear Lake boys track team at the state meet. In the 4x800 relay that opened the action Saturday morning at Hamline, June 9, sophomores Max Nelson and Logan Tanttu, and seniors Jace Bartz and Michael Rohlinger, churned to fourth place in 7:55.39, shaving almost 13 seconds off their sectional time of 8:08.44. “They broke a school record that was set in 1975 — one of the oldest records we had,” coach Thomas Paulson said. “The oldest is discus, which was 1965. They all ran really well and broke the record by three seconds.” The quartet was running in the slower heat, against conference and section rival Stillwater, and familiar rivals pushed each other to third- and fourth-place finishes. Meanwhile, junior hurdler Conor McManamon reached finals in both hurdle races, and senior Ben Vanderbosch got on the podium in the 1600 run. McManamon placed fifth in the 110 highs with 15.11, after qualifying with a 14.94 in the section. He was eighth in the 300 intermediate with 40.06 after a 39.90 sectional. Both those races were won by conference rivals from Mounds View. Vanderbosch, in the last of multiple state meets in cross country and track, ran a personal-best 4:16 for eighth place, beating previous PB of 4:21.57 in the sectional.

White Bear Lake was conference and section champion this year, also qualifying for state true-team as a wild card after placing second in the section. They qualified for state in 12 events although most of them didn’t place. The team placed 20th with 15 points. “It was a great season, despite all the weather issues, ranging from snow to blistering heat to lightning and everything else,” Coach Paulson said. “They really kept up their focus.” The 4x100, 4x200 and 4,400 teams did not advance to finals. Andrew Kohnen and Sean Ruohamaki, who placed 1-2 in shot put at the section, and Connor Thieseld, section discus champion, did not throw as far at state and did not reach finals.

of the

White Bear Lake hurdler Erika Townley was state runner-up in both her races at the state meet Saturday, June 9. Townley, closing a superb junior season with her personal-best times, said two silver medals were “pretty sweet, pretty awesome.” Townley took second in 100 hurdles with 14.59, against Eagan senior Natalie Windels, who won with 14.53. Same finish occurred later in the 300 with Townley clocking 42.88 and Windels in 42.21. Windels repeated as 300 champion. “I just wanted to try my best, and I know that Natalie, the girl that beat me, is super nice, super talented. I will gladly take second place against an athlete like her.” Especially satisfying: “I had two PBs (personal best) yesterday and two PBs today and we are hoping to smash the 4x400 record, too.” She had 14.73 and 42.82 in the preliminaries.

Townley, who regards soccer as her primary sport, made all-state in each hurdle race for the second straight season. Last year, she placed third in 300 (44.09) and eighth in 100 (14.95). The Bears scored points in five events and placed seventh with 33 points. Minnetonka won with 63. Also climbing up on the podium individually was junior Claire Odmark with a fifth-place run in the 400 dash with 58.16, after a PB of 57.95 in the prelims. Townley’s strong anchor leg in the 4x400 helped the Bears place fifth with 4:00.75, after a 4:00.00 prelim. That group of junior Jordan Gast, senior Yajaira Lansiquot, freshman Danielle Madden and Townley, beat their section time of 4:02.51. The 4x800 team placed seventh with 9:27.89 — 30 seconds under their section time — with junior Olivia Schwintek, sophomore Tori Taugner, junior Emily Brockberg and Gast. State qualifiers not advancing to finals were the 4x100 relay and Lansiquot in the 300 hurdles.

Trying lacrosse season ends at state tourney BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

The Mahtomedi lacrosse season started with four days of shoveling show. Seems like a long time ago now. The 2018 campaign will end up with a more pleasant form of extreme physical exertion: playing in the state tournament. The Zephyrs fended off Stillwater 11-10 in a fierce Section 4 title game June 6 in Roseville. Mahtomedi takes a 13-3 record into its second consecutive state tourney, and fourth in five years. The Zephyrs, seeded No. 5, faced No. 4 Eagan in the first round Tuesday at Chanhassen (after press time). Other pairings were Way-

zata vs. No. 3 Minnetonka, Lakeville North vs. No. 2 Prior Lake, and Centennial vs. No. 1 Benilde-St. Margaret’s. If Mahtomedi beat Eagan, they face the Centennial-BSM winner on Thursday, 5 p.m., at Minnetonka. Record-setting snowfall the first half of April delayed lacrosse action but the Zephyrs turned that into a team-building opportunity. “We had to spend the first week of practice shoveling snow out of the stadium,” coach Pete Moosbrugger said. “And instead of guys complaining and screaming at each other about having to do that, they cleaned it out for four days straight, six to 10 p.m., sometimes 11.”

BRUCE STRAND | SUBMITTED

Mahtomedi players celebrate after the final horn of their 11-10 victory over Stillwater.

The challenge then became playing what Moosbrugger called “the toughest schedule in the state” and occasionally

taking some lumps in the process. But they stayed together and persevered, never falling into the trap of complaining

and pointing fingers. “That never happened with this team,” he said. Timmy Lindquist delivered four goals for the Zephyrs in the section finals. Nate Graslewicz added three, Josh Campbell two, and Connor Stoker and Ben Putney one each. Stillwater (13-3) brought lots of pressure on the Zephyr goalkeeper. “But luckily, Brodi Larson made at least three or four saves today that should have been goals,” Campbell said. Mahtomedi, which finished fourth at state last year, is ranked No. 6. They have lost to No. 1 Benilde-St. Margaret’s 9-5, No. 2 Chanhassen 11-10, and No. 4 Prior Lake 10-2, and beat No. 7 Wayzata 14-13.

Zephyrs cap section title run with victory; earn top seed at state BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

With Grant Taival winning a classic 1-0 pitchers duel in the section finals, the Mahtomedi baseball team is headed to “state” for the fifth consecutive season. Taival threw a four-hitter with three walks and seven strikeouts, prevailing over Noah Couwenhoven of Fridley, who also allowed just four hits, at CHS Field in St. Paul, Thursday evening, June 7. “Grant showed great composure in a big situation,“ said coach Robert Garry, the team’s longtime pitching coach who took over as head coach this year. The lone run came in the third inning when Carter Shook walked, stole second, and scored on Jamie Berg’s single with one out. Mahtomedi (18-4), which had two chances to win once in the finals, went 4-0 in Section 4AAA, all close games, beating St. Paul Central 7-5, St. Anthony Village 8-6, and Fridley 9-6 and 1-0. “We were down at one point in all three section games leading up to the finals,” Garry said. “It is a huge credit to the seniors on this team, and a tribute to their leadership and dedication to each other.” Taival indicated that he loves pitching in pressure like that, even with just one run. “It’s nice to have a lot of runs, but I have always thought that all I need is one,” said Taival, who also had

a 1-0 loss this year, to Hastings. “The key thing for me is throwing a strike on the first pitch, which significantly increases the chance of getting them out. I was able to do that, and my team backs me up. Our defense was fantastic.” Taival was also the winning pitcher in the 8-6 with over top-seeded St. Anthony Village. “I wasn’t getting my first pitch strike that day,” he said. Mahtomedi garnered the No. 1 seed from coaches and will open Thursday against Grand Rapids (10-15) at 10 a.m. at Siebert Field, home of the Gophers. Action continues Friday and Saturday. Other pairings are No. 5 Willmar (13-6) vs. No. 4 Alexandria (15-6), Red Wing vs. No. 2 Rocori (20-5), and South St. Paul (14-9) vs. No. 3 New Ulm (20-3). Mahtomedi’s best finish in this five-year run of state trips was second place two years ago. In Mahtomedi’s 9-6, eight-inning over Fridley on June 3, Austin Jerylo rapped a two-run single in the eighth and pitched three scoreless innings, striking out five, to nab the win. Berg had two hits and three RBI’s and Adam DeVore two hits and two RBIs. Garry praised his team for playing the right way. “All the little things you need to do to be successful in baseball, moving runners, taking the extra base, and so on, they have done with great detail, and this approach has afforded them to be in an excellent position going into the state tournament,” he said.

Pre-shot routine: the dress rehearsal If you watch golf on TV, you see a lot of really good shots. What you don’t see much is a lot of really good preshot routines. And that is too bad. If someone asked you what your pre-shot routine is and Tee Time you can’t tell them with accuracy, you might Betsy Larey want to work on that this summer. Here’s why you need one. The pre-shot routine helps you accomplish four things. First, it helps you concentrate. It’s not possible to concentrate for four hours in a row. By breaking it down into manageable segments (30 – 45 seconds) you can better focus on the task at hand. Second, it helps remove tension from your body. You cannot play good golf if you are anxious or if your mind is clouded with too many mechanical thoughts. There is no greater saboteur of the golf swing than tension. Third, a solid pre-shot routine instills confidence. And there is no greater creator of tension than a lack of confidence in your ability to make the swing. Finally, a good pre-shot routine helps you produce perfect alignment at address. If I had to pick the one mistake I see the most regarding the pre-shot routine it is this – incorrect alignment. There are a number of ways players get their line. I’ll give you an easy one. Stand

behind the ball and hold your shaft up, drawing a line with your shaft from your ball to your target. Walk around to the side of ball, keeping your eye on that line. When you get parallel to that line, set your clubhead behind the ball, making sure the face is at a 90 degree angle to the line. Then set your feet parallel to that line. Remember, the human eye cannot see that line from the side of the ball. You would have to have an eye in the side of your head! If you are uncertain if your stance line is correct, hold the shaft up across your shoulders (grip end pointing towards the target). That line should always be pointing slightly left of your target (for right handed golfers). If it’s pointing at the target or farther right, that’s a problem. The entire process should not take more than 30 – 45 seconds and can be easily completed without feeling rushed. Too much time over the ball allows for too many mechanical thoughts to entire your mind. I break the process into three components; the analysis box, the commitment line and the performance box. The analysis box is where you consider yardage, the lie, shot options, club selection, any hazards that may come into play, wind, etc. This should be done behind the ball. Once you’ve processed this information it’s time to take your practice swing. Whether you do this on the side of the ball or behind is a personal preference. For purposes

of speedy play you should only take one, unless you are greenside or have an unusual lie. At this point it’s time to walk across the commitment line to the ball. If you ever watch golf on TV you may have seen a player set up to the ball, then step away and walk back behind the ball. What’s happened is he/she is not totally committed to the shot. At this point you are back in the analysis box and you start the process all over again. The worst thing you can do is to make a change after you’ve crossed the commitment line, because your swing will probably be a defensive swing and tentative at best. The performance box is where you want the right side of your brain to take over. Time and again I see players standing over the ball entirely too long. All the thinking should have been done in the analysis box, not here. Once you’re set, I recommend you turn and stare at the target for a few seconds. This is a very right brain technique, and what you’re doing is planting “target’ in your brain instead of mechanical swing thoughts. If you stand stationary and stare at the ball instead of the target, you’ll become too rigid and lose focus. I am a firm believer in picking out a spot on the back of the ball to look at as you swing, but you can’t fixate on the ball. Remember the ball is not the target, the target is the target. If you still feel tense over the ball, take a deep breath and

exhale. This automatically takes any tension out of your body, especially your hands. I play a song in my mind as soon as I set the club down and get my line. I also say the word “superfluid” as I swing. I picked that up years ago from a book about Zen and Learning Golf. It gives you the perfect tempo, along with the pause that you need between your backswing and your downswing. There’s an additional thing you can do to help your confidence. If you hit a poor shot by all means watch it, but take a post shot swing before you put your club away. Your mind remembers the last thing you did and you want to remember the good one! You should practice your routine just as you practice other parts of your game. Make sure that your routine is simple and efficient and remember that a good pre-shot routine makes good shots routine!

Former Mahtomedi/Kentucky ace drafted high by S.F. Giants BY BRUCE STRAND SPORTS CONTRIBUTOR

Sean Hjelle, the 6-foot-11 Mahtomedi graduate who has pitched for University of Kentucky the past three years, was drafted high by the San Francisco Giants on June 4. Hjelle went in the second round with the 45th pick. Kentucky coach Nick Mingione, interviewed by UK’s sports website Cats Pause, praised Hjelle for being graceful enough at 6-11 to throw low to mid 90s, hit the strike zone with four different pitches consistently, and field his position. “This guy is different. He can command the ball. I can’t say enough good things,” Mingione said. Hjelle is the second former Zephyr pitcher currently involved in professional baseball, joining Michael Baumann, who’s in his second season in the Baltimore Orioles chain. “I think we will all be watching Sean and Michael, as they journey through the minor leagues,” commented John Hargrove, former Mahtomedi High School coach who mentored both of them. "They are two outstanding young men." Hjelle’s best collegiate season was 2017 as a sophomore when he was Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Year, going 11-4 with a 3.89 ERA, including 7-1 and 1.90 against SEC opponents. This year, Hjelle was 7-5 with a 3.44 ERA. In his fi nal appearance with Kentucky, he threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings with nine strikeouts against Auburn in a 4-3 loss on May 27 in the SEC tournament. As a freshman, he was used as a closer and posted eight saves. Over

his career, Hjelle averaged just over three times as many strikeouts as walks. At Mahtomedi, Hjelle helped the Zephyrs reach the state tournament in 2014 and 2015. He also played basketball, averaging 15 points and 10 rebounds, but always regarded baseball as his No. 1 sport. The Giants fan website, mccoveychronicles.com, noted that if Hjelle makes the big leagues, he would tie former reliever Jon Rausch (a former Twins) as the tallest player ever

Former Bear has strong track meet for UND

Mahtomedi girls LAX, unbeaten until section finals, falls to Stillwater

Makala Keefe, a sophomore from White Bear Lake on the University of North Dakota track team, had a strong performance at the Big Sky Conference meet May 8-10 in Idaho. Keefe placed fourth in discus with a throw of 148 feet, 4 inches, and fi fth in hammer throw with 1718. Throws coach Drew Jones praised her: “For someone who had an uneventful conference meet as a freshman … to come back her sophomore year and be in the top five in both of those events is a heck of a feat. I was very happy with her. She stuck her nose in there and made it work for the day.”

Sean Hjelle, shown during the 2018 season with the Kentucky Wildcats, was the 45th pick in the draft, taken by the San Francisco Giants.

in Major League Baseball. The site added: “Beyond that, he’s got a nice fastball and a solid curveball but a forgettable changeup. His college stats aren’t as visually startling as his appearance, but he’s maintained basically a 3:1 strikeout to walk ratio over the course of his career, which is good! He also began his college career as a closer before transitioning into a starter, which isn’t unusual, but it is the setup to the general lack of consensus within the industry.

“Hjelle has added 20 pounds of good weight in his time at Kentucky and he has touched 97 mph in shorter fall ball outings when well rested. But more realistically, Hjelle projects as a reliable No. 4 starter thanks to his above-average control, three average or better pitches and a track record of durability.” Hjelle was contacted but declined to be interviewed for this story.

The Mahtomedi girls lacrosse team won its fi rst 13 games this year, but could not break up the Stillwater Ponies’ dynasty in Section 4. The Ponies beat the Zephyrs 16-10 in the fi nals at Roseville last Wednesday evening, June 6, earning their eighth consecutive trip to state. Ellie Guzzo notched three goals for Mahtomedi. Abby Searles and Anna Raney had two each, and Jayne Dmitri, Amanda Russel and Greg Schimnowski one each. Meredith Perry pumped in five goals and Abby Hagberg four to lead Stillwater (13-5).

Zephyr triple-jumper places 3rd at state

Mahtomedi’s lone entrant at the state track meet earned a bronze medal on Friday. Ian Fosdick, a junior, placed third in triple jump with a 44-4 1/2 effort at Hamline University. He qualified for state by winning sectionals with 45-10 3/4, his career best. The state champion, Xavier Thurman of St. Michael-Albertville, won with 45-9 1/4.

Residents form co-op, plan to go solar together MAHTOMEDI — Residents in Mahtomedi, White Bear Lake and surrounding cities have formed a solar co-op to save money and make going solar easier, with the help of nonprofit Solar United Neighbors. Conservation Minnesota and the Mahtomedi Area Green Initiative are the solar co-op sponsors. The group is seeking participants and hosted an information meeting May 31 to educate the community about solar and the solar co-op process. “For anyone interested in solar and curious to see if it might work on their roof, this is a unique opportunity to have expert guidance not only help them figure out the next steps, but also to help with all of the paperwork and gather multiple bids to compare,” said Christine Ahmann-Maples of the Mahtomedi Environmental Commission.

Solar United Neighbors expands access to solar by educating Minnesota residents about the benefits of distributed solar energy, helping them organize group solar installations, and strengthening Minnesota’s solar policies and its community of solar supporters. The organization has launched six active co-ops across the state. “I am excited to work with Mahtomedi-area homeowners to educate them about the benefits of solar energy,” said Virginia Rutter, Solar United Neighbors of Minnesota program director. “If you’ve ever thought about going solar before, this is the perfect opportunity to do so.” Area residents interested in joining the solar co-op can sign up at solarunitedneighbors.org. The solar co-op is free to join, and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels. Once the group is large enough, Solar United Neighbors will help

‘Oops’ requires re-award for tennis court fencing BY MAGGIE STANWOOD CONTRIBUTING WRITER

WHITE BEAR TOWNSHIP — As Hannah Montana once sang, “everybody makes mistakes.” Now, Town & Country Fence knows what she’s talking about. The White Bear Town Board approved a quote from the company at a previous meeting in the amount of $17,585 to replace fencing at the Eagle Park tennis court. However, Town & Country Fence found it had omitted the middle support rails on the fencing from its quote. When that portion was included, it brought the quote up to $20,000 — higher than the other bidder, Modern Fence. Modern Fence had submitted a quote for $17,600, which included the middle support rails. The updated quotes were brought before the Town Board during its regular June 4 meeting. “It may look familiar,” said Public Works Director Dale Reed, commenting on the agenda item. After discussion, the board rejected the original quotes, received the updated quotes and approved the quote from Modern Fence for $17,600. Funding for the project, part of the town’s 2018-2027 Capital Improvement Plan, is from the parks and recreation fund. The fencing is part of a larger project to revamp the tennis court in Eagle Park. So far, more than $35,400 has been spent on a new asphalt court and about $8,500 for court surfacing. Of the $60,000 designated in the parks and recreation fund for the project, that left a little over $16,000 for the fencing. The shortfall will be made up with monies from other parks and recreation projects that come in under budget.

About half the cost has been raised so far. • Authorized a letter of support be

SCHOOL BRIEFS Water education funding not received

About $100,000 in requested funding for the White Bear Lake Area Schools and H20 for Life water conservation education program, Race 2 Reduce, was not approved by the Legislature this session, reported Sen. Chuck Wiger. Funding was included in a Senate bill but the House did not accept the provision. “I commend everyone’s local efforts, and we will be back again,” Wiger said. Several other districts are exploring how to implement the program. This year's funding would have provided monies to develop the program for expansion across the state.

Pollinator garden at high school

Every year, the Mahtomedi High School Eco Club and Jim Lane’s field ecology and conservation class work on projects to make Mahtomedi a more environmentally friendly place. This year, the club made a butterfl y garden to help make the grounds more pollinator-friendly. Club members came up with the idea for the garden after realizing that the natural prairie area near the high school had been removed during summer construction. Natural prairie spaces and butterfl y gardens provide safe places for pollinators to feed and lay eggs. Without pollinators, we would not have most of the crops and natural plants that we need. The garden will be located on the hill near the varsity baseball fi eld.

New community education bus

Mahtomedi Community Education plans to purchase a 14-passenger bus that will be used to provide transportation for senior/adult community education trips. Community education is in its third year of offering monthly breakfast club trips, which have grown from a partial van of seniors one day a month into two vans twice a month. Also, this is the third year that community education will offer summer day trips for seniors/adults, which are also becoming increasingly popular. The $53,000 vehicle will be funded with community education dollars and a $4,000 grant from the Wildwood Lions Club.

Classical school partners with Century College

Dr. Naomi Dillner from White Bear Lake’s Liberty Classical Academy is merging the classic philosophical ideologies of Socrates with the complex innovative technology at Century College's Fab Lab. Twice each week, Liberty Classical high school students apply what they know of Socrates’ standard for beauty with the digital tools of the Fab Lab. They create pieces of art while taking a dive into modern design technology in Dillner's “classical aesthetics in digital systems” course. “In this class, our students are working on something real that has meaning, as opposed to an academic exercise.” Dillner said. “We had dreams for this course that seemed impossible, but Century turned those dreams into reality. They gave us access to equipment and space that we did not have and gave our students the platform to infuse ideals of beauty from ancient Greece (humanities) with rapid-prototyping digital systems (engineering). It’s clear that Century College values being engaged, connected and a resource to our local community.”

Vadnais Heights community organizations donate scholarships

The Academy for Sciences & Agriculture High School announced that Sophia Forliti, Bayley Coronado and Auriole Corel Fassinou are recipients of collegiate scholarships funded by Cargill, General Mills, the Vadnais Heights Area Community Foundation and the Vadnais Heights Lions Club. Fassinou is the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship funded by the Vadnais Heights organizations.

White Bear district recognized for accounting and financial reporting

The White Bear Lake Area School Board recently received an Excellence in Financial Reporting award from the Association of School Business Officials and Government Finance Officers Association, the highest forms of recognition given in governmental accounting and fi nancial reporting. ISD 624 has received the awards for 18 consecutive years. "The fi nance team in White Bear works hard to navigate a complicated state school finance system, and the district has a history of excellence in this area,” said Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations Tim Wald. "This recognition demonstrates the commitment of both the school board and district leadership have to transparency and accountability with our fi nances." The White Bear Lake Area School District has received a bond rating of AA from Standard and Poor’s each year the district has applied since 2010.

District communications department awarded

The White Bear Lake Area Schools Communications Department received a Northern Lights Award (the "gold medal" level) from the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators (MAGC) for the district's “2017 Annual Update to the Community" publication.

Middle school principal honored

Sunrise Park Middle School Principal Christina Pierre was recently named the Capital Division Middle School Principal of the Year by the Minnesota Association of Secondary School Principals.

It was an interesting past week. It wasn’t particularly hot but it was kind of humid. It wasn’t dry and it wasn’t wet, but we did receive some rain. We totaled a quarter of an inch of rain early Thursday morning but the most annoying rain was the steady rain late Saturday morning into the early evening hours, which for many totaled under 0.10 inch. We didn’t hit 80º as daily highs and lows averaged near normal. Astronomy note: Up early? Mars is almost due south before sunrise with Saturn in the lower southwest sky.

WHITE BEAR/VADNAIS HEIGHTS PRESS www.presspubs.com

15B

Local artist unveils State Fair poster The Minnesota State Fair’s 2018 Commemorative Art made by White Bear Lake paper collage artist Kristi Abbott was unveiled at the State Fairgrounds June 7. The original 3-foot by 4-foot piece will be on display in the Fine Arts Center during the 2018 Great Minnesota Get-Together and posters will be available for purchase. Abbott’s work uses color, pattern and texture in an innovative and exciting way through a combination of papers, adhesives and embellishment materials. Each piece is built using multiple layers and is made up of hidden imagery. This piece is no exception; it is a tapestry of visual storytelling containing more than 50 hidden images representing all parts of the State Fair. “There is no shortage of imagery to include for the Minnesota State Fair. The hardest part was deciding which images to include when I could only fit so many into the final artwork,” Abbott said. “Hopefully, the images I included evoke a sense of fun, wonder and excitement that is felt at the fair. I certainly felt this on every one of my seven visits to the Great Minnesota Get-Together in 2017, especially when visiting with my niece, Willow, and sister, Lauralea, who are the main subjects in my finished piece.” Abbott has spent her life traveling between Sydney, Australia, and the greater St. Paul area. Growing up, she was seldom without a book, a Barbie doll and a set of coloring pencils. She was fascinated by art, travel, culture and making things with her hands from a very early age and chose to study art, theatre and design throughout school. After a decade in the corporate arena, a

graduate degree in design and an executive master's of business administration, she decided to leave the corporate world and move to Minnesota to pursue her true passion. Abbott’s work rose to notoriety when she was chosen as the featured artist for the Edina Art Show in 2015. Following the success of her first show, she was selected as the featured artist for Duluth Art on the Bay and awarded a commission. In 2016, Abbott developed her Pop Icon Series that included stars such as David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Murray and Prince. In 2017, she created the “I Am” series, a collection of eight portraits, along with a multi-media experience unique to each piece. Most recently she led a collaborative exhibition called “7 Warrior Women,” which highlighted seven artworks and seven continents of the world. She also made a collage piece for the new Shoreview library. The Press ran an article on Abbott's artistic process in March. Abbott lives in St. Paul but has a studio in White Bear Lake. The State Fair commemorative poster, a limited number of signed prints and other merchandise are available for purchase at mnstatefair.org, and will also be available during the fair at State Fair Wear Gift Shops and Bargain Book and State Fair Poster Carts on the fairgrounds. Proceeds will support the Minnesota State Fair Foundation's mission to preserve and improve the historic fairgrounds and support fair educational programs. The 2018 Minnesota State Fair Commemorative Art is the 15th in a series of artwork created annually by Minnesota artists. In past years, artists have included: Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher (2004), Mary GrandPré (2005), Nancy
