Crystal City Councilmember Elizabeth Dahl, center, and fellow Councilmember Julie Deshler, right, and other residents helped
install bee-friendly plants along Bass Lake Road in Crystal the morning of May 7. (Submitted photo)

Bee friendly in Crystal


Crystal residents, city
workers, and city council
members showed up bright
and early the morning of
May 7 to install easy-topollinate,
hard-to-pronounce plants petunias,
lysimachia, salvia, begonia, ipomoea, coleus, and
zinnias at the citys inau-

gural Bee Friendly event.


City
Councilmember
Elizabeth Dahl said the
event was a great merging
of needs: to beautify the
city, to get citizens more
involved in the city, and
educate residents about bee
friendly flowers. Bees, Dahl
said, are important to hu-

mans survival, but would


not be able to survive without humans, either.
Volunteer
planters
worked up and down West
Broadway and Bass Lake
Road. Others worked at
city hall or the Crystal
Community Center. All of
the plants were donated by

the Crystal Fund for Community Progress, and Dahl


said a nearby Starbucks
donated coffee for the volunteers.
Dahl said she hopes the
event begets a community
garden and that it becomes
a yearly occurrence, at
least.

Jean Genie OHearn,


a longtime Robbinsdale
business owner who came
to be deeply embedded in
the citys business and social circles, passed away
May 9. She was 81.
OHearn was the proprietor of Genies Magic
Cleaners, a well-patronized dry cleaners that sat
in the Robin Center strip
mall for decades and
closed almost immediately after her death. Her
regular customers included senators, mayors, businesspeople, and a host of
everyday West Metro residents. The cleaners was
open six days a week, and
many remembered her
tireless work ethic and the
convivial way she ran her
business.
I could easily sit there
for a half hour talking
about everything, remembered Mayor Regan Murphy, who said OHearn
was proud that a local

Irish boy was leading the


city and helped him keep
a finger on its pulse during his campaign. There
are no polls, but theres
Genie.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar
said she first visited Genies in 1998, when Klobuchar was running for
county attorney. Someone
had spilled on Klobuchars nicest suit, she said,
and OHearn was the only
cleaner who could fix the
problem.
She loved the people
who made her business
run, and they loved her
right back, Klobuchar
said. Jean had a passion
for the world around her,
and she always wanted the
latest scoop on politics. ...
She was at the hub of all
things in Robbinsdale.
The Eagles family owns
the adjacent Eagles Nest
and Broadway Pizza, and
developed a close relationship with OHearn.

elections May 17-31


With election campaigns
seemingly starting earlier
each year, it is easy to overlook the formal candidate
filing process for federal,
state and local elections.
Those interested in running
for office must file with the
Office of the Minnesota
Secretary of State or a local election office.
Candidates interested in
running for federal, state,
county and some local
races must register May 1731. The May filing period
is for those who wish to
run for U.S. Congress and
federal offices; Minnesota
State House of Representatives, State Senate and
other state offices; judicial
offices; county offices, such
as certain Hennepin County Board and Three Rivers
Park Board seats; and municipal and school board
seats that may require a
primary.
For the school districts
and municipal elections
that will not have a primary, the filing period for
candidates is Aug. 2-16.
In the races that will require narrowing down the
number of candidates for
the general election, a primary election will be held
Tuesday, Aug. 9. Absentee voting for primaries is
June 24 through Aug. 8.
It is available to any voter,
not merely those who will
be unable to visit a polling
place on Election Day.
The following is a list of
offices that will be up for
election; however, not all of

the boundaries for the various offices follow the same


lines. Check the Minnesota
Secretary of State website,
sos.state.mn.us, for information about the specific
offices that will be on your
election ballot.

U.S. Congress
The Fifth Congressional
District seat, which has
been occupied by Keith Ellison since 2007, is up for
grabs in 2016.

State House and


Senate
Two area seats are open
for House of Representatives this year and one in
the State Senate.
District 45A has been
represented by Lyndon
Carlson for 44 years.
District 45B is currently
represented by Mike Freiberg who has served on the
House since 2012.
Peggy Flanagan is a new
face to the House. She ran
unopposed in a special
election in 2015 to take
over representing District
46A after former rep. Ryan
Winkler retired.
House terms are two
years.
Sen. Ann Rest, representing District 45, will also
need to seek re-election if
she wishes to stay in office.
Senate terms are four
years.
All three incumbents
have yet to formally announce their candidacy

to the Sun Post, but have


appeared with re-election
paraphernalia at the states
caucuses last March.

Hennepin County
One Hennepin County
Commissioner seat will be
open for the 2016 election.
Incumbent Mike Opat,
currently serving District 1,
announced early in the year
that he would be seeking
re-election. Opat has been
on the board since 1993.
County term is four
years.

Three Rivers Park


District
Penny Steeles Three Rivers Park Commissioner
seat, representing District
1, is up for grabs in 2016.
Daniel Freemans commissioner seat is also available in the coming election.
These are four year
terms.

Crystal and
Robbinsdale
In Crystal, the mayor
and two city council seats
will be up for grabs. Incumbent Mayor Jim Adams has
announced his intention
to run for that office, and
challenger ReNae Bowman
- who lost a close vote to
Adams in 2012 - has done
the same. City Councilmembers Casey Peak and
Julie Deshler have also

Cost of Blue Line Extension expected to increase


Revised project scope and
budget announced June 2
BY GINA PURCELL
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
With the announcement of the revised Blue
Line Extension project
scope and budget only
two weeks away, the project office is hard at work
finding solutions to issues,
furthering the design and
reviewing the cost.
On May 12, the Corridor Management Committee received an update
on pedestrian bridges in
Crystal, noise walls, traction power substations
and systems elements
and intersection improvements at Golden Valley Road and Theodore
Wirth Parkway.

Pedestrian bridges
Since early February,
the Blue Line Extension
Project Office has looked
into providing pedestrian
bridges on County Road
81 at Bass Lake Road and
63rd Avenue, at the citys
request.
Some options have been
explored but no decision
on the bridges has been
made.
According to Project
Director Dan Solar, Hen-

nepin County is taking


advantage of the opportunity to implement atgrade improvements at the
County Road 81 and Bass
Lake Road intersection.
The county will introduce wider medians, add
push buttons in the median, widen pedestrian
crosswalks from 6-8 feet
to 12 feet, add black paint
for contrast, raise crosswalks in free right turn
lanes and add stop bars.
This work is expected to
occur this summer, minimizing the impact at this
intersection later on during light rail construction.
Weve heard that crossings are difficult here today so were working on
that, Solar said.
Despite these at-grade
improvements, the project
office continues to develop
design configurations for
pedestrian bridges.
The city of Crystal is
still interested in having
some say as far as which
changes happen, said
Crystal Mayor Jim Adams.
According to Adams,
the council is not ready
to fully accept the current
proposal for the intersection.

Were hoping to continue discretions with


Hennepin County that
there are some things
about maintenance that
we are concerned with,
he said.
Adams said maintaining the intersection would
consume the citys entire
street maintenance portion of the budget for one
year.
Those topics and more
were scheduled to be discussed at Crystals work
session later that day.
As for the County Road
81 and 63rd Avenue intersection, the project office
will be recommending pedestrian crossing improvement with a construction
cost estimate for both atgrade and bridge options
at the June 2 Corridor
Management Meeting.

Noise walls
Project staff has identified five noise walls along
the line in Crystal, Robbinsdale and Golden Valley.
The first will run along
Kewanee Way from Manor Drive to north of 26th
Avenue. The wall must be
10 feet high.
Three noise walls are
proposed for Robbinsdale.
One will run along Indiana Avenue from 31 1/2
Avenue to north of 33rd

Avenue. This wall must


also be 10 feet high.
Another wall will run
along the east side of the
corridor from 34th Avenue to 40 1/2 Avenue.
This walls height will vary
from six feet to eight feet.
Finally, a wall will be installed along the west side
of the corridor from 36th
Avenue to the end of June
Avenue.
A six-foot crash wall
will be used for this noise
barrier.
Crystals noise wall will
run along the east side of
the corridor from 45th Avenue to Corvallis Avenue.
This wall will also be 10
feet high.
I think Id like to have
Robbinsdale council talk
about this more, Robbinsdale Mayor Regan Murphy said.
He also wondered if the
noise walls could be built
prior to the line in order
to mitigate construction
noise.
Solar said that may
work, but if not there are
other noise mitigation options during construction.
Metropolitan Council
Chair Adam Duininck
asked if the noise walls
were considered into the
last cost estimate.
According to Solar, the
noise walls were not included in the previous cost
estimate.

Traction power
substations and
systems elements
There will be 15 traction power substations, 15
signal bungalows and 12
grade crossing bungalows
spaced out along the line.
Brooklyn Park Council
Member Rich Gates was
puzzled why these systems
were being placed on the
opposite side of the tracks
in some cases when the
goal was to hide them.
Brooklyn Park residents have extreme concern about screening, he
said.
According to Engineering Manager Jim Toulouse, screening will be addressed in the near future.
Murphy wondered if
the bungalows could be
wrapped, much like the
utility boxes in parts of
Minneapolis. The wrappings are artistic, more
aesthetically pleasing and
prevent graffiti.
Toulouse said if money
allows, bungalows could
potentially be wrapped.

tion was recommended


by the Minneapolis Parks
and Recreation Board,
Hennepin County and
Golden Valley.
This option offers better pedestrian and bicycle
access and can function at
an acceptable level of service for vehicular traffic.
Staff will seek public
comments regarding design details this summer.

Next steps

The updated project


scope and budget will be
presented to the Technical Project Advisory
Committee, Business Advisory Committee and

Area Schools board member from 1997 to 2001.
My platform is to restore to Crystal its financial
health and return resident,
business and institutional
involvement with city business, Bowman said in a
statement. Her plan for the
city includes engaged en-

vironmental stewardship,
more city council transparency; improved input and
involvement for residents,

and rebuilt budget sustainability.
Bowman lost a close 2012
race to current mayor Jim
Adams, who has announced
his intention to run for reelection.

requirements. The following requirements are listed


on the state secretary of
state website, which states
that all candidates:
Must be eligible to vote
in Minnesota.
Must have not filed for
another office at the upcoming primary or general
election.
Must be 21 years of age
or more upon assuming office.
Must have maintained
residence in their district
for at least 30 days before
the general election.
Someone who wishes to
run for U.S. Congress must
be at least 25 years old at
the time she take offices,
must be an inhabitant of
Minnesota when elected,
and must have at least seven years of citizenship, according to the Minnesota
Secretary of State.
A qualified candidate for
state senate or state house
seat has to have lived in
Minnesota for at least a
year and within his state
district for the six months
leading up to Election Day.
Information about qualifications for other elections
are available with the filing

officers who are designated


for each level of government. That information
can be accessed on the
Minnesota Secretary of
State website.
The candidate filing fee
varies by office as well. Filing for U.S. Representative
or judges costs $300; state
senate and house seat filings cost $100; county office candidate filing fee is
$50. Municipalities and
school districts have it a little easier. City office filing
fees range from $2 to $20,
and the school board filing
fee is $2.
Then, there are those
candidates who have second thoughts. Any candidate who reconsiders can
withdraw his filing within
the filing period and up
to two days after the filing
period ends. In previous
elections, some candidates
filed, but did not campaign,
allowing their name to remain on the general election ballot, even though it
never appeared on a sign
in someones lawn or on a
screen in someones living
room.

Protecting states most valuable natural resource


If you live in an average U.S.
household, you may waste up
to 11,000 gallons of water each
year because of a faulty or outdated toilet, dripping faucets,
leaking valves or other common plumbing issues, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. In Minnesota,
where a growing population
increasingly relies on an unseen
water source that takes thousands of years to replenish, it is
time for all of us to think about
proactive water quantity management.
In Minnesota, three-fourths
of the water supply comes from
groundwater. This is the inverse of the rest of the country,
whose water needs are mainly
met by rivers, lakes or other
surface water. In the past 25
years, Minnesotas groundwater use has increased 35 percent,
according to the Minnesota
Environmental Quality Boards
2015 Water Policy Report.
Municipally-supplied water
systems, agricultural irrigation
and industrial manufacturing
are the three largest groundwater usage categories in Minnesota, according to the report.
Municipal water systems account for more than half of
groundwater use, totaling approximately 126 billion gallons
of water in 2011. One-third of
that water is used for residential irrigation or landscaping,
according to a presentation
at Gov. Mark Daytons water
summit earlier this year.
Be it irrigation, hosing down

Our viewpoint
a vehicle, watering a lawn, filling a power plant tank, making snow on a ski hill or one of
the many other purposes other
than human consumption,
there is an expense and consequence for how we manage
this resource. Much of that water only gets used once before
it must be treated through a
sanitary system and eventually
dumped into the Mississippi or
Minnesota rivers.
Treated water that is deposited in those rivers can no longer
contribute to the already sluggish recharge of aquifers from
which it came. We are flushing re-usable and sometimes
nearly potable water down a
massive drain.
Around Lake Minnetonka,
groundwater levels have been
declining for six decades, according to the Freshwater Society. It reports that groundwater
levels near Lake Minnetonka
communities have dropped
more than 20 feet since 1945.
The canary in the coalmine,
though, might well be the story
of White Bear Lake. It has long
suffered from rising and falling water levels, many thought
because of changes in rain or
snowfall levels. While that does
play a role, it does not completely explain the dramatic
reduction in lake levels in the
last 13 years. Since 2003, the
lake level has fallen by five feet.
Through years of testing, re-

searchers have now determined


the lake is actually connected to
groundwater aquifers. As more
water gets pumped out of those
aquifers by increased urban development, the lake level is reduced.
In Southwest Minnesota,
where groundwater is not
nearly as plentiful, consumers
have already learned how to
be more conscious of their water consumption. In Marshall,
that awareness has reduced per
capita water usage to just 60
gallons per day. By comparison, residents in Coon Rapids,
Champlin, Edina, Rosemount,
Lakeville, Eden Prairie and Andover, on average, are consuming more than 90 gallons per
day (2008-2012 usage).
Despite
the
publicized
groundwater troubles, the beginning of a possible long-term,
systematic solution may not be
getting as much attention. In
2013, the DNR began drafting
a strategic plan for its Groundwater Management Program.
It also initiated three groundwater management pilot programs authorized by the state
Legislature. Those programs
are taking place in the east and
north Twin Cities metro around
White Bear Lake; the Bonanza
Valley in West Central Minnesota, west of St. Cloud; and the
Straight River near Park Rapids.
The underlying objectives of
the pilot program are: sustainable groundwater management
through bolstered water-level

monitoring and data collection; determining what waterlevel thresholds would require
limiting water pumping; public involvement; and enhanced
collaboration among multiple
water-related agencies.
But these measures are only
at the beginning of the water wells. The true management will have to come from
demand-side of our systematically undervalued and underappreciated commodity. That
includes wise use of water by
residential consumers and industries.
The EQBs 2015 Water
Policy Report shows that agricultural irrigators, whose use
accounted for 34 percent of
Minnesota groundwater pumping (88 billion gallons) in 2011,
have begun making low-pressure systems an industry standard, and the DNR plans on
adding 39 weather stations to
the current 11 across the state
that help farmers better predict
water needs.
Some industrial consumers
who accounted for 8 percent of
water groundwater consumption in 2011 have provided
examples of more efficient
consumption. For example, in
the Twin Cities Metropolitan
area, it took three engineering
interns one summer to find a
total of 44 million gallons of
potential water efficiencies at
three companies, according
to the 2015 Water Policy Report.
Plumbing and water treat-

ment codes could be updated


to make recycled water easier to
use in industry and agriculture.
As an example, Mankato Energy Center reached an agreement with a wastewater treatment plant to use reclaimed
water up to four times before it
is discharged to the Minnesota
River, saving an average of 2.25
billion gallons of groundwater
per year.
Eased regulations could
save municipally-supplied water as well. The policy report
also highlights that rainwater,
gray water, stormwater and
reclaimed wastewater could
all be safely used for flushing
toilets, irrigation, washing cars
and recharging aquifers.
Minnesota is not yet in a water quantity crisis. But, state
agencies are uniformly signaling the early warnings. The
sooner that groundwater sustainability awareness and efforts spread, the easier it will
be to balance water supply,
demand, quality and costs.
Proactive efficiency efforts, local controls and statewide measures will have to strengthen
before across-the-board regulations become the only option
for mitigating the areas of increasing water consumption
and decreasing supply.

Protect your
personal information

Seniors citizens often receive
mail that asks for their personal information in exchange
for details about life insurance,
funeral expense benefits or supplemental Medicare benefits.
Once seniors provide their information, they are sometimes
flooded with mailed solicitations or hounded by sales calls.
The organizations that send
these mailings are not affiliated
with the government. They sell
your personal information to
insurance companies that then
use it to try to sell you life, burial, or supplemental Medicare
insurance.
These companies called
lead generators send mailings that look like they may
be from government agencies.
They feature headings like
New 2016 Government Benefit Update for Minnesota Citizens, IMPORTANT LETTER OF NOTIFICATION
or Medicare Open Enrollment
Qualification Request Card.
One mailing pressures seniors to return the card to see
if they qualify for a Final Expense Insurance Program that
may pay 100% of final expenses or as much as $25,000.
Another mailing asks seniors
to provide their personal information to see if they qualify for
a NEW state-regulated life
insurance program that would
pay up to $50,000. The mailing
also claims that by returning
the card, people may receive a

Target parking lot in


Crystal to be redeveloped
Crystal approves 5,000 square foot retail building
A chunk of Crystal is
slated to become a retail
building.
St. Paul-based Paster
Properties
announced
May 5 that it had acquired a 5,000-squarefoot parcel of land in the
parking lot of the Crystal Target.
The city of Crystal has
approved the site to be
developed into a retail
building with a drivethru.
The company is preleasing the space to multiple retail users. Construction will begin upon
lease signing.
In related news, the
Crystal Shopping Center which is also owned
by Paster is set to be
home to a Planet Fitness,
a gym that has a Judgement Free Zone.
The gym will occupy
23,885 square feet of re-

tail space in the box formerly leased by Michaels.


The facility is expected to
open in November 2016.
We are extremely
excited to be a part of
Crystal Shopping Center and believe the value,
quality and environment
we provide will resonate
well with the community, said Scott Majkrzak,
managing member of
Planet Fitness.
Including the Planet
Fitness lease that was
executed on May 2, Paster Properties has leased
more
than
113,000
square feet of retail
space at Crystal Shopping Center since March
2015.
Were thrilled to fill a
space thats been vacant
for the last year with a
use that has been lacking in the community for
a long time, said Pas-

or other relativesthey
need the best families to
care for them while they
are in foster care. And
that includes foster parents who are willing to
adopt the children they
care for if the children
cant return home safely
and the childrens parents rights are terminated.
Relatives are often the
answer. Removing children from the people
they love and the environments they know is
emotionally traumatizing. When children must
leave their homes, counties and tribes consider
placing them in foster
care with relatives first.
Currently, 43 percent
of foster families are
relatives of the children
they care for.
Yet we still need more
relatives and other foster parents to provide
critical temporary care

and nurturing to children in crisis. We need


foster parents to soothe
childrens fears at night,
listen to them vent about
their struggles and help
them cope with changes
in their lives. We need
foster parents to advocate for children at
school and in the community, find them the
resources to deal with
the trauma in their lives,
and bring them to medical and mental health
appointments. We need
foster parents to cheer
for youth at games and
concerts, praise them
for trying their best and
hug them when they feel
the world is crashing in
on them. And, we need
foster parents who will
consider adopting children.
You could be one of
those parents. You could
offer foster children the
hope and help they need

Hennepin County implements waste study


BY CHRISTIAAN TARBOX
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
In an effort to reduce
waste and increase county-wide recycling habits, Hennepin County is
implementing a study to
discover if a goal to recycle 75 percent of waste
by 2030 is tenable.
The week-long study,
which took place May
8-14, examined trash
collected from a crosssection of Minneapolis,
which was sorted into
different categories at the
Hennepin County Energy Recovery Center in
downtown Minneapolis.
The study aimed to characterize materials based
on what is already recyclable in residential recycling programs, as well as
what materials go in the
trash.
We have three loads
come in on Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday, and then we took 17
samples from each load,
said County Recycling
Specialist Ben Knudson.
Each sample is about
200 pounds. It goes to
our primary sort table, so
theyll dump the sample
onto their table. Theyll
sort the garbage into
more than 50 categories.
The study will also
compare the sort data
to socioeconomic information from the various

Workers at the Hennepin County Energy Recovery Center sort through samples of trash for the countys waste examination study

neighborhoods to find
trends in recycling behaviors to help inform and
structure future educational efforts.
Currently, the county
has a goal of recycling 75
percent of waste by the
year 2030, and the study
will allow a better understanding of what needs to
be done to change the recycling habits of county
residents and businesses.

FROM PAGE 1
died of multiple gunshot
wounds of the torso.
Minneapolis police said
a total of eight people
were shot during the incident. Two were taken to
nearby trauma centers in
critical condition and five
transported themselves
with non-life threatening injuries, Spokesperson John Elder said. Da-

vis was found dead at the


scene.
Elder said the incident is possibly gang- or
drug-related. Police are
still sifting through witness accounts and other
evidence, but they believe
that multiple people in
at least one vehicle drove
past Davis and others
congregating in the area,
shooting with purpose
and intentionally.
We do not believe that
any of these victims were
unintended targets, Elder

is take a look at how we


get there, said County
Recycling Educator Alisa
Reckinger. What is the
reality of whats in our
trash, and what do we
need to prioritize in order to get there? Theyre
sorting it not just by plastic, paper, metal or glass;
were looking at it and
saying, Could this be recycled right now? 2030s
really not that far away
to get to 75 percent, and

said. More than four dozen rounds were fired at the


scene and its likely that
the congregating group
returned fire, he said. All
the shots were fired with
handguns, Elder added.
The shooting is one of
the latest in a series of violent crimes in the Northside. Neighbors near the
scene declined to comment.
Police have since installed a mobile camera
unit at the intersection
at nearby residents insis-

weve got a ways to go.


Were making slow and
incremental progress, but
we need to make faster
progress.
According to county
officials, 200 garbage
trucks drop off garbage
at Hennepin County Energy Recovery Center on
a typical day. Seventy-five
percent of the garbage
is generated in Minneapolis, while the other 25
percent is from the Hen-

percent of the trash is

In addition to the data
sort, there was a secondary sort that would look
at the retail characteristics of the trash.
Basically, were saying, Where would you
find this material in a
department store? said

Knudson. Were not


calling it paper or plastic: were saying if its a
toy, a sporting good, a
health and beauty product. Part of that is to
learn more about not
only where the waste is
created, but learn more
about consumer habits
that give us some insight
on where its generated in
the home.
Forty-six percent of
waste created in Hennepin County was diverted
to recycling or organics
recycling in 2015, and the

We need to find better
ways of disposing materials, but landfills are not a
good place for garbage,
said Jan Callison, chair

Federal agents seize 140


      
pounds of meth from
, ("#, # /()
Brooklyn Center home
,,( ( , )  1$.
  


Seizure is the largest in Minnesota history


BY CHRISTIAAN TARBOX
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
A months-long federal
investigation saw the seizure of 140 pounds of
methamphetamine from
a Brooklyn Center residence.
A joint investigation
between the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Anoka Hennepin Drug Task Force
resulted in the discovery of a methamphetamine storage facility in
a Brooklyn Center home
May 9, according to the
official criminal complaint.
The seizure, the largest
such recovery in Minnesota history, resulted in
the arrests of Maplewood
residents Dolores Ludmilla Castillo and Francisco Silvestre-Martinez,
both charged with possession and the intent to
distribute.
The
investigation,
which had been performed since September
2015 by the DEA and

the drug task force, was


initially looking into the
drug activities of Nicholas Nelson, who was
suspected to have been
involved in the sale of
methamphetamine ranging from several ounces
to several pounds of the
drug.
The complaint stated
that authorities performed several undercover purchases of meth
from Nelson, and during
the course of the investigation, authorities suspected that a particular
house in Brooklyn Center
was being used as a storage facility for the drug.
Officers found 140
pounds of meth from
the house, some of it divided into quart-sized
bags in 1-pound increments. Documents were
also recovered that indicated that Castillo and
Silvestre-Martinez were
the primary residents of
the house.
Castillo and SilvestreMartinez were arrested at
a Maplewood residence

May 10, in possession of


two pounds of methamphetamine. Authorities
also found $130,000 in
cash at the house.
Castillo and SilvestreMartinez made their first
court appearances May
11 in U.S. District Court
in Minneapolis, and are
being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David Steinkamp.
This is what successful
collaborative law enforcement efforts can do, said
Anoka County Sheriff
James Stuart in a statement. I am very proud
of the team that worked
so hard to make this operation a success. Let
this be a clear message
to those who would try
to poison our communities in the name of evil
greed; we will continue in
this hunt and we will find
you.

*If you qualify and your loan is approved, a HECM Reverse Mortgage must pay off your existing mortgage(s). With a HECM
Reverse Mortgage, no monthly mortgage payment is required.
Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes and homeowners insurance (which may be substantial). We do not establish
an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. A set-aside account can be set up to pay taxes and insurance and may
be required in some cases. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise
the loan becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable when the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing
surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes and insurance payments, or does not comply
with the loan terms.
A reverse mortgage increases the principal mortgage loan amount and decreases home equity (it is a negative amortization

Mahalo, Robbinsdale Area Schools volunteers


More than 1,600 volunteers
contributed 30,327 hours to the district
BY GINA PURCELL
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
Volunteers have long
played a vital role in the
success of Robbinsdale
Area Schools students.
This year is no exception.
The districts volunteer
program, known as Volunteers in Partnership, has
been helping students reach
their full potential since
1975.
According to Volunteers
in Partnership Coordinator
Jill Kaufman, more than
1,600 volunteers contributed 30,327 hours in the past
year. This work translates
into an income contribution
of $750,019 as calculated by
the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics formula.
On May 5, their dedication to students was celebrated at the annual Volunteer Recognition Breakfast
at New Hope Church.
This years theme was
Volunteers hold caring in
the palms of their hands
and included Hawaiian decorations to match.
Each guest received an artificial flower lei before entering the tropical paradise
where they would limbo
their way to the prize table.
The program opened with
a choreographed number by
eighth grade FAIR School
dancers.
Speakers stood amidst

props of a tropical monkey,


Red-Eyed Tree Frog and
Toucan.
After enjoying breakfast,
Kaufman introduced Supt.
Carlton Jenkins, or the Big
Kahuna as she referred to
him, provided his thanks to
those that serve his district.
It was Jenkins first Volunteer Recognition Breakfast.
This is a very important
event not only just in our
district but in our community, he said. These are the
real role models, you are, in
terms of for our children.
We all have to get back to
that main thing of raising
up our children well so that
they can do well later on in
life and know that its important to contribute back
to your community, to give
back to your community
and not look for anything
in return.
Jenkins explained how
amazed he was when he
heard of the districts 40
plus year volunteer program.
When you have 1,600
people putting in hours
above hours and they dont
even have children in the
district, that says a lot about
the strength and potential
of the community, he said.
Before returning to his
seat, Jenkins introduced the
mornings keynote speaker
R.T. Rybak, former mayor
of Minneapolis, founder of

Minneapolis Promise and


executive director of Generation Next.
R.T. is no stranger to us
locally, statewide and even
nationally, Jenkins said.
Hes known for taking on
big things. Making sure that
students are going to be college and career ready. In the
state of Minnesota we have
the widest (achievement)
gaps in the nation. This
gentleman said, I want that
challenge.
Rybak snapped a photo
with the room full of volunteers, which he later uploaded to Twitter, and began talking.
I want to talk to you
about being selfish, he said.
What I mean by that is you
have already demonstrated
that you will do things because you believe it is important. ... But I want you
to know that the work you
are doing also has a tremendous amount to do for helping you as well.
Rybak explained how the
nature of Minnesotas communities has changed dramatically since he was a kid.
There is a cultural fluency
gap, he said.
The fact of the matter
is you cant work at Target
today, you cant work at
3M or General Mills and
go around the world today
without having the capacity
to deal with people who are
different than you, he said.
That was a nice thing, and
a good thing and the right

Supt. Carlton Jenkins expresses his appreciation to the more than 1,600 volunteers in Robbinsdale Area Schools at the May 5 Volunteer Recognition Breakfast. Several hundred volunteers
were in attendance. (Sun Post staff photo by Gina Purcell)
thing for people our age, but
it is imperative for our kids.
The population of this
school district is one of the
most valuable things you
have. The ability to cross a
barrier is critically important, so students who are

in this district are far more


valuable and have far more
skills than those in districts
that are much more about
one race dominating the
population.
While Rybak said that is
a wonderful thing, it has its

challenges.
We are not yet producing a situation where every
single child has the same
opportunity to thrive, he
said. There is no other

Arne Carlson, past legislative leaders weigh in on session


They predict
difcult days
ahead
BY SETH ROWE
SUN SAILOR NEWSPAPERS
Minnesota state leaders
who have been there before weighed in on what
voters can expect to see at
the end of this years legislative session.
At a May 13 TwinWest
Chamber of Commerce
legislative breakfast in St.
Louis Park, former Gov.
Arne Carlson, a resident of Plymouth who
served as a Republican
governor 1991-99, joined
DFLer Margaret Anderson Kelliher, who served
as Speaker of the House
2006-10, and Larry Pogemiller, a DFLer who
worked as Senate Majority Leader 2007-10.
The three speakers predicted difficult days ahead
as the end of the 2016
legislative session looms
with a May 23 scheduled
end date.
Current legislators are
struggling over transportation, a bonding bill for
projects throughout the
state and taxes, Pogemiller said.
Thats what I think
their struggle is right
now, he said. What the
danger is, I think, is too
much of this is going on
late and behind closed
doors where theres kind
of no pressure to stay on
track.
Kelliher said at this
point in the session legislators are becoming
crabby as reality starts to
set in.
A lot of high hopes

for things people thought


they might get done both
for the executive branch
and for the Legislature
start to fall by the wayside, Kelliher said.
She recalled that legislators could become very
angry with her when she
served as Speaker of the
House.
I always had people at
the end of the session
these are my own people
who vowed they would
never speak to me again
because their special issue
was laying on the cutting
room floor, Kelliher said
of fellow DFLers.
Of the current situation, Kelliher said, Were
not seeing a lot of transparency here about whats
in and whats out, so
theres going to be a lot
of surprises about whats
going to happen.
Pogemiller added that
issues become intertwined
at the Capitol.
The reason people link
issues is to create leverage
to get power, Pogemiller said. Youre trying
to create a deal between a
bunch of little fiefdoms.
He added, It is a difficult process, and the
biggest problem is there
are too many decisions
that get delayed, delayed,
delayed, and they all get
crunched together in the
end.
All legislators are up
for election this year, but
legislative leaders must
help them understand
that they may need to
give up some things for
the greater good, Pogemiller said. He said the lack
of agreement on a bonding bill yet this year in either the House or Senate
means that legislators are

not on record about what


they support.
Referring to bonding,
transportation and tax
policies, Pogemiller said,
I do think they will pass
all three bills, and its going to be pretty ugly.
Carlson said Gov.
Mark Dayton should use
the power of the line-item
veto on items legislators
want to prompt them to
vote in favor of major
bills. He recalled using
the line-item veto of projects proposed by fellow
Republicans who said
publicly that the opposed
the bonding bills size to
point out what he considered hypocrisy and to
convince them to approve
the bill.
He criticized Dayton
for what he perceived as a
lack of energy, but he also
criticized his own party.
Im being very hard on
the Republicans here, and
I think with good reason
because frankly were going through a period of
stagnation, Carlson said.
He hearkened back to
Minnesotas past political
climate.
Both parties felt an
obligation to send to the
Legislature their best and
their brightest, not their
most dogmatic, Carlson
said. The result was we
got overall remarkably
good governance. But
now were stagnating.
Light rail is one of those
ingredients that is vitally
important for the wellbeing of metropolitan
Minnesota. Our transportation infrastructure
is third-world, and all this
talk that we cant raise
taxes to pay for it is sheer
nonsense.
Carlson decried what

he sees as a lack of vision


for Minnesota.
Were not talking
about where as a state we
are going, Carlson said.
Minnesota
historically has excelled on the
strength of its educational system, but high
salaries at the University
of Minnesota go toward
athletics instead of the
medical school, he continued.
We just hired a new
(athletic) director at over
$800,000 a year. We give
access to private planes to
coaches who cant coach,
Carlson said to laughter
from the audience. The
sad part is we have students selling their blood
in order to pay for tuition.
We have a whole secondary faculty that is underpaid and has no benefits
whatsoever. None. And
were not focused on academic achievement.
He accused legislators
of failing to investigate
scandals at the university,
such as a long-standing
controversy regarding the
psychology department.
He also strongly critiqued legislative priorities, asserting that
the Legislature has been
pouring hundreds of
millions of dollars into
Zygi Wilfs pocket, referring to the principal owner of the Minnesota Vikings, but has not found
the money to eliminate
the problem of homeless youth and ensure the
needs of veterans are met.
He also accused the
Dayton administration of
favoring political loyalty
more than competence.
We took a superb
health care system and
we transformed it into a

disaster, he asserted.
Carlson praised former
DFL Gov. Wendell Anderson for charging business executives with the
task of tackling the high
cost of government in the
past.
They scraped all the
barnacles off the ship of
state, Carlson said.
But he criticized the
DFL Party with failing
to maintain one of its historic roles.
He asserted that Democrats should get their
eyes off of making too
many multimillionaires
into billionaires and get
back to strengthening the
safety net.
Too many Minnesotans
make less than $32,000 a
year and survive on about
$12.50 a day for food,
Carlson added. Legislators need to focus on the
long-term growth of the
middle class to restore
their purchasing power,
he added.
The strength of the
Democrats was always
the safety net, Carlson
said. Now that has been
largely ignored.
Truthfulness and transparency is lacking in Minnesotas government, he
said, pointing again to
the Vikings stadium deal.
I dont understand
this new ideological nonsense that is paralyzing
us and keeping us as a
citizenry out of the loop,
Carlson said.
He acknowledged governors and legislative caucuses develop their policy
positions in private, but
he said that after deciding
on an agenda they should
seek maximum discussion, input and analysis.
Kelliher joked that

Carlson sounded like he


might run for office again,
an assertion Carlson said
he had no interest in pursuing after the panel discussion.
Pogemiller wryly remarked, You see the
difference between the
legislative view and the
executive view. Executives
only need to agree with
themselves.
He and Kelliher reminisced about a meeting
between Kelliher and a
Senate chair person on a
health care issue.
Literally at 3 a.m. we
sat quietly staring at each
other, Kelliher recalled,
noting that she used a
shared enjoyment of sewing to connect with the
legislator.
Pogemiller recalled his
own relationship with
Carlson, detailing a heated dispute the two had.
He said, Well what
do we agree on? I said, I
think we both care about
poor kids. The steam
went out of the relationship, Pogemiller said.
This is all about the interpersonal relationships
between who is making
these decisions.
He later added, I
would not want to be an
incumbent if this session
melts down, either Republican or Democrat.
Carlson concluded that
voters need to hold politicians accountable.
He said, I want to see
more legislative breakfasts here at the chamber
of commerce with legislative leaders explaining
their reasons for success,
not their failures.

Enthusiasm is key for Armstrong lacrosse


Falcons ride
hot offense
to victory
BY CHRIS CHESKY
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
Armstrong head boys lacrosse coach Luke Gellerman has been pleased with
what he has seen from his
group so far this season.
The Falcons are 8-1
and tied for first-place in
the Northwest Suburban
Conference with Anoka
and Elk River/Zimmerman. Armstrong, while it
has not yet earned a top-10
state ranking, has played
some of its best lacrosse of
the season during the last
few weeks. The team believes that its enthusiasm
has led to enhanced production on the field.
We have been preaching
enthusiasm this season and
we know once that once
we get up there is no way
to stop us, senior Nathan
Borowick said. Getting
loud and getting excited on
the sideline translated on
the field and we were able
to bury a few goals.
Without enthusiasm,
we are a flat team without
the speed and excitement,
but once we get going on
the sideline, we get going
on the field and the goals
will keep coming, the defense will play well and we
wont be stopped.
The Falcons enthusiasm
led them to a 3-0 record
last week, with an 11-4 victory over Anoka, a team
that entered the game as
the states 12th ranked
team, May 9, 10-4 victory over Centennial May
11, and an 11-1 win over
Champlin Park May 14.
Im looking for us to

Chris Chesky)
stay hot as we head towards sections, Gellerman said. We just have to
play a strong team game,
be fast and smart and we
have to focus on fundamentals.
Armstrongs
biggest
strength this season has
been its scoring depth,
as Gellerman trusts each
player he puts on the field
to contribute to the teams
scoring numbers.
Were not looking to
give the ball to only one or
two guys because we know
great teams can only win
when they play true team
offense, Gellerman said.
Were preparing for the
best because we have Blake
and Benilde-St. Margarets
in our section, who both

look great.
The Falcons came out
looking to build off a confidence-boosting win over
Anoka against Centennial
May 11, but fell behind 1-0
early. Gellerman, after seeing his guys respond well
to similar situations in the
past, was confident Armstrong would not lose the
contest.
We gave up an opennetter to Anoka that put
us down 1-0 as well, Gellerman said. We have been
working on staying evenkeel and it sometimes takes
just a little time to settle in
and get a feel for the game.
The defense woke up a
little more and brought on
the communication.
The Falcons battled

back to lead 3-2 after the


first quarter and went on
a 7-2 scoring run through
the remaining three quarters to earn the 10-4 victory.
Im feeling phenomenal
about these guys right now,
Gellerman said. Their
goalie stood on his head
and battled for them and he
robbed us from some goals
we should have had.
The score doesnt tell
the story of this game.
Armstrongs
scoring
depth was put on full display, as Mitchell Pass and
Borowick scored three
goals each, while Joseph
Poferl scored one goal and
added two assists, while Elliot Olson scored two goals
and recorded an assist.

We moved the ball well,


we stayed spread out because we know bad things
happen when we get condensed, and we had a good
shot selection, Gellerman said. We missed a
few chances and I thought
we could have scored 25
goals.
Armstrong will have a
chance to take sole possession of first-place in the
conference when it plays
Elk
River/Zimmerman
at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday,
May 25, at Elk River High
School.

Hawks earn
12-5 win over
Coon Rapids
BY CHRIS CHESKY
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
The Cooper softball
team is looking to show
that it can score on a
game-by-game basis.
The Hawks played
five games last week and
posted a 1-4 record, but
the lone win of the week
came in a 12-5 contest
against Coon Rapids May
14. The Hawks are 3-2
when scoring more than
five runs, but Cooper has
had difficulty getting to
that mark, as it has scored
three or less runs 10 times.
The Hawks played in a
competitive game May 9,
against Bloomington Jefferson, as the game was
tied 3-3 before Cooper
allowed two runs in the
bottom of the third to fall
5-3.

Introducing your new Sun Post sports editor


In the year I have spent
with Sun Newspapers, I
have learned many things.
One of the things I have
learned is that journalism
is not the best profession to
choose if you are a person
that places a high value on
knowing what exactly you
are doing from day to day.
Thankfully, I am not one
of those people.
I have spent the majority of the past year as a
Richfield sports editor and
community news editor for
the Sun Current, one of
the Sun Posts sister papers.
During that time, I have
taken on breaking news
stories such as the Black

CHRIS
CHESKY
SUN POST
NEWSPAPERS
Lives Matter protest at
Mall of America and have
taken on as many as three
extra sports sections to cover last minute.
Being a journalist can get
really busy really quickly.
While I was stressed,
frustrated and often times
confused about how to
perform the job, I do not
regret one minute I spent
as the sports/community
editor for the company. It

was a fun job and, while


it could be stressful, I enjoyed everything I did, and
I am proud of everything
I wrote on both the sports
and community side of
news.
I cant say that Im not
relieved now that my job
appears to have a bit more
clarity since I have taken
over as sports editor of
the Sun Post. I am excited
to build relationships with
people in all the communities we cover, while hoping
to spend equal time between the five schools (plus
the two schools in Richfield) in my coverage duties.
Matthew Davis did a

great job building quality


relationships with the many
coaches and athletes in the
area, and I hope to be able
to uphold the standards
that he has set for our publication.
That being said, if there
is anything you see in the
paper that you do not agree
with, please feel free to
contact me directly. If you
happen to really enjoy a
piece I write or a photo that
I took, please contact me.
I guess what I am trying
to say is that I would like
to meet and communicate
with as many people in the
community as possible.
Even though you would

think I would want to be


quiet when I am not out on
assignment because talking
plays a major role in my
job, I love having quality
conversations with as many
people as possible.
I know there are many
great people in this community, and I look forward
to having the opportunity
to meet you. Please feel free
to reach me at anytime via
phone or email. My office

Armstrong baseball uses depth to its advantage


BY CHRIS CHESKY
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
After winning four of
five games to start the season, the Armstrong baseball team lost four consecutive games from April 19,
to April 26.
The Falcons have since
improved their record to
7-7 by going 3-2 in their
last five games.
Were starting to put
games together more than
we did earlier in the season, Armstrong head
coach Brian Sobiech said.
Consistency has been our
biggest issue, but were
starting to hone in on what
we want for our lineup
come section time.
Sobiech has worked relentlessly to find the best
starting lineup his roster
can offer and has been
willing to reshuffle his lineup on a nightly basis.
Were able to start three
different sets of infielders
that we like, Sobiech said.
Thats something we like
to do and we think that
helps us be competitive
year in and year out rather than having a different
starting nine each year.
We have about 12 guys
with at least 20 at bats,
while, for some teams, nine
guys is as deep as they
would like to go. We like
to get a bunch of guys at

Mitchell Verbeten went


2-for-3 with an RBI to lead
the Falcons.
Sobiech believes that
the loss to Osseo, as well
as games against Coon
Rapids Thursday, May 19,
Minneapolis
Washburn
Friday, May 20, and Eden
Prairie Saturday, May 21,
can only help Armstrong
succeed.
I want our guys to be
prepared for section play,
which is the most important thing, Sobiech said.
Wins and losses dont
matter at this point and
were not worried about
where we sit at section
time, we just want to be
playing our best baseball
at that time.
With four games left in
the season, Sobiech hopes
that the Falcons will be
able to step up and do
something that they have
not done yet this season.
We have yet to put together a game where we
hit, pitch and play good
defense all at once, Sobiech said. If we can get it
to where we are clicking at
everything and everybody
has a role, then thats what
were looking for.

I promise I will not bite.

First impressions
I have already attended
four events in the two days
that I have served as the
Sun Post sports editor, and

bats, which we feel is important.


Keeping his best players fresh has been important for Sobiech and it has
helped the Falcons play
well in their most recent
games.
Josh Thorp, Armstrongs
leading hitter, went 2-for-4

with three RBIs to help


push Armstrong past Irondale 4-2 May 10.
One of our best players is Josh Thorp, who has
been a three-year starter,
led the team in batting
average as a sophomore
and he is leading our team
right now at around .360

or .370, Sobiech said. He


does a good job as our center fielder.
Jerrick Kuznia allowed
two runs (one earned) and
six hits over six innings
while striking out one.
Mitchell Waletzki struck
out two in his one inning
of relief.

We get a lot of great


pitching efforts, Sobiech
said. Mitchell Waletzki
has been a beneficiary of
pitching in relief early and
he is 4-1 on the season.
Armstrong could not extend its two-game winning
streak against Osseo May
12, as the Falcons fell 5-1.

I have found that many of


the areas teams share positive qualities.
Sure, some teams are
more successful than others, but the most important thing is that all the
teams share the same passion for winning.
The first event I attended was the Brooklyn Center baseball game May 11,
and, even though the Centaurs fell 14-1, the athletes
did not give up on each
other. I never got deep into

high school baseball and


I didnt even come close
enough to sniff a chance at
playing varsity, but I know
that times are tough when
a team is trailing by more
than 10 runs on a consistent basis. Players can turn
on each other quickly in
those types of conditions,
but the Centaurs stuck together and pushed a run
across in the bottom of the
fifth inning, the final inning of play. A positive attitude is vital for any team,

and I have to say I was


impressed by Brooklyn
Centers ability to look at
the bright side of the game
after a tough loss.
I was also treated to
a great game May 12,
when the Champlin Park
and Park Center baseball teams squared off.
Champlin Parks Aaron
Kloeppner and Park Centers Dan Hansen were
locked into a classic pitchers duel,
and neither
pitcher gave up an earned

run in what turned out to


be a 1-0 win for Champlin Park. Champlin Park
entered the game with an
11-2 record and was recognized as the third best
team in Class 4A, while
Park Center was 3-8, but
felt that it was much better
than its record indicated.
In only two days on the
job, I have been given the
opportunity to meet some
fantastic coaches, gifted
athletes and, most importantly, I have witnessed

community engagement to
identify what works and
aims to replicate the most
promising practices.
The most exciting work
weve done is to delve into
the social and emotional
issues behind this, he
said. You know whats
super interesting? These
gaps that we talk about
that show up, sadly, so
dramatically on the math
and science and reading
test, shrink dramatically
when we bring character
into the picture.
According to Rybak, information out of St. Paul
shows that African Ameri-

can, Hispanic, Asian and


Hmong students have a
higher commitment to
learning, but when positive identity is factored in,
those groups plunge.
We dont need to spend
as much time saying, Hey,
buckle down and do your
homework. We need to
spend more time saying
I believe in you, Rybak
said. What Im saying is
we are in it together. We
are in a fight that is tough,
but we are in one of the
most exciting battles we
have ever had because this
population, this generation is a gold mine.

Following
Rybaks
speech, the group recognized the districts many
academic volunteer coordinators, shared a short
video with photos of
volunteers in action and
honored those who have
served for 5, 10, 15 and 25
years.
Thank you all for the
dedication to our students,
the gift of your time, and
most importantly the gift
of you to our students,
said CEE Program Director Aviva Hillenbrand.

but you knew what she


expected out of you, he
remembered.
OHearn
often told him a story
perhaps a legend about
the time a 60s riot threatened to burn down stores
along Plymouth Avenue
in North Minneapolis. A
collection of pimps, the
story goes, surrounded
OHearns business there
to protect it, grateful for
the care with which she
cleaned their vibrant suits
and hats.
OHearn whose niece
Laurie Griffith said had
no children of her own
employed a steady stream
of residents children in
her store, watching them
grow up, go to school,
move out of the house,
and sometimes move back

to Robbinsdale to have
kids of their own.
She saw the kids coats
go from size to size every
year, and always asked
about what they were doing and remembered what
they were involved in,
said Will Kenny, who attended a May 11 memorial service with wife Linda Kenny, both of whom
used Genies Cleaners for
30 years. OHearn was
particularly interested in
their kids traditional Irish
dancing and shared an interest in sports like womens hockey, they said.
Small talk wasnt small
talk with Genie, Will remembered. The Kennys
family car accumulated
a stack of tags and receipts that most dry clean-

ers need to keep track of


whose clothes are whose
they were rendered useless by OHearns sharp
memory, they said.
During those chats
OHearn was known to
dole out advice and life
lessons about child rearing, respecting others,
working hard or just life
in general. Conversations could stretch out for
hours, sometimes.
We used to joke that
if you dont have time to
visit, you better not take
your clothes to Genie,
said Gary Laurant, who
worked on Whiz Bang
Days, the citys annual
summer festival, for years
and frequently asked
OHearn for donations to
the festival or other civic

causes, which he said she


always gave. OHearn
even served as grand marshal for the festivals traditional parade through
the city, and reportedly
relished the opportunity.
Griffith recalled that
OHearn was at every
family holiday, and, even
in her old age, would
dance with her great nieces and nephews while they
played the familys Nintendo Wii.
She loved to party,
Griffith said. Genie always got up for anything.
In late April, two weeks
before OHearns death,
Griffith and OHearn
went to El Toro Mexican restaurant and had
a mock birthday celebration for OHearn, com-

plete with sombrero.


We told them its going to be Genies birthday soon, so can we
celebrate? Griffith remembered with a laugh.
OHearns birthday is
September 21.
Griffith recalled that
friends and family would
often say how much
she reminded them of
OHearn. Only after returning to Robbinsdale
for OHearns funeral did
the weight of those comparisons sink in, she said.
I didnt realize what
an honor that was to be
likened to her, Griffith

You are hereby notified that the


above-styled action, which seeks
the termination of parental rights,
was filed against you in said Juvenile Court in Glynn County, Georgia on the 18th day of February,
2016. The petition alleges that the
above-named children are dependent children and that it would be
in the children best interest that
the parents parental rights be terminated. A copy of the petition
may be obtained from the Clerk of
Glynn County Juvenile Court. The
children are currently in the temporary custody of the Glynn County
Department of Family and Children
Services.
THEREFORE, YOU ARE COMMANDED AND REQUIRED to appear before the Juvenile Court of
Glynn County, Brunswick, Georgia
on the 14th day of July, 2016 at
9:30 oclock a.m. The effect of the
termination order requested shall
be to terminate the parental rights
and obligations of the parents with
respect to the above-named child,
including rights of inheritance.
READ CAREFULLY
NOTICE OF EFFECT OF
TERMINATION JUDGEMENT
Georgia law provides that you
can permanently lose your rights
as a parent. A petition to terminate parental rights has been filed
requesting the court to terminate
your parental rights to your children. A copy of the petition to terminate parental rights is attached
to this notice. A court hearing of
your case has been scheduled for
the 14th day of July, 2016 at 9:30
a.m. at the Juvenile Court of Glynn
County.
If you fail to appear, the court
can terminate your parental rights
in your absence.
If the court at the trial finds that
the facts set out in the petition to
terminate parental rights are true
and that termination of your rights
will serve the best interest of your
children, the court can enter a judgment ending your rights to your
children.
If the judgment terminates your
parental rights, you will no longer
have any rights to your children.
This means that you will not have
the right to visit, contact, or have
custody of your children or make
any decisions affecting your children or your childrens earnings or
property. Your children will be legally freed to be adopted by someone else.
Even if your parental rights are
terminated: (1) You will be responsible for providing financial support
(child support payments) for your
childrens care unless and until
your children are adopted; and (2)
Your child can still inherit from you
unless and until your children are
adopted.
This is a very serious matter. You
should contact an attorney immediately so that you can be prepared
for the court hearing. You have the
right to hire an attorney and to have
him or her represent you. If you
cannot afford to hire an attorney,
the court will appoint an attorney if
the court finds that you are an indigent person. Whether or not you
decide to hire an attorney, you have
the right to attend the hearings of
your case, to call witnesses on your
behalf, and to question those witnesses brought on against you.
If you have any questions concerning this notice, you may call
the telephone number of the clerks
office which is: 912-554-7048.
If you want a lawyer appointed
to represent you, you must let the
Court or the officer of this Court
handling this case know that you
want a lawyer immediately.
WITNESS the Honorable George
M. Rountree, Judge of said Court.
SO ORDERED, this the 18th day of

A whole new meaning to school eld trips


BY GINA PURCELL
SUN POST NEWSPAPERS
Most high school students in America learning
about the Holocaust may
fill out worksheets, view
photographs or watch films
about the topic. For Hopkins High School junior
Ellen Sussman, the lesson
was more direct than a second-hand perspective.
The 17-year-old Golden
Valley resident learned
about an opportunity to
study abroad through the
Jewish National Fund from
a friends older sibling who
participated in the program
in 2014.
Jewish National Fund is
an organization founded in
1901 and known for donating money to purchase land
that later became Israel.
A few years ago, Jewish
National Fund purchased
the Alexander Muss High
School in Israel.
Sussman said the idea of
studying abroad was always
in the back of her mind, an
idea that became tangible
when an Alexander High
representative showed up
to her synagogue.
Thats when I definitely
decided to come, she said.
The students still study
core subjects but have
classes focused around Israeli and Jewish history as

Relay
FROM PAGE 1
through. They dont get
a day off from cancer, so
we wont either, even if it
is just for one night, said
Cami Dahlstrom, Cooper
science teacher and staff
person on the planning
committee.
From 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.,
students will walk the
track and enjoy various activities, such as capture the
flag, midnight mile, tug-ofwar, zumba, yoga, silent
auction and bake sales.
Guests are welcome 6-11
p.m. but then the event

well.
In addition to history lessons, her 18-week program
included interacting with
locals in Hod HaSharon,
the small community where
they live; learning Hebrew,
experiencing basic training
at an Israel Defense Forces
army base; and a four-day
hiking trip from the Mediterranean Sea to the Sea of
Galilee.
Immediately after they
learn something, they take
them on a field trip to the
actual site, said Jewish
National Fund Communications Writer Daniel Peri.
Its very much a hands on
program. It brings Israel to
the classroom.
The program is open to
any and all high school students, and it can earn them
college credits as well.
Alexander Muss High
School in Israel welcomes
only students studying
abroad, but teachers take
their students to other high
schools in the area so they
can make local friends.
Sussman arrived in Israel
Jan. 25. Her program ends
May 26, but her family has
decided to visit until June
8.
It has been one of the
best experiences of my
life, she said about her first
trip to Israel. It has been
amazing. I love every sec-

ond of it.
The school is different
from American schools,
she said.
Class is a lot more personal, Sussman said. The
classes are really small. I
have one class of 19 and
one of six, and the rest are
one-on-one.
The Holocaust lessons
were especially interesting
to Sussman.
Before coming to Israel,
I studied World War II and
the Holocaust but not in
the depth that I did here,
she said. Here I learned
so much more, and they
made it a very personal experience. We went in depth
about almost every aspect.
Following her lessons on
the Holocaust, Sussman
and her classmates visited
Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial museum
in Israel, and took a weeklong trip to Poland to visit
places like Auschwitz concentration camp.
The Holocaust part of
learning here was hard,
she said. It was a lot of
emotions to take in. For
me, it was very difficult to
understand just how bad it
was until I saw the places
first hand. Its one thing to
read about the places, but
to see them is something
totally different.
Sussman said visiting

Yad Vashem was overwhelming.


Seeing all this terrible
stuff put into one beautiful
display was confusing, she
said. While we were there,
we had the opportunity to
speak with a Holocaust
survivor, Anne Franks
best friend. I had heard
many Holocaust speakers
but hearing one in Israel
was amazing.
According to Sussman,
Poland was easily the most
difficult part of her trip.
We had to see stuff that
was immensely disturbing, she said. We stood
next to mass graves of our
people. Each Holocaust
site we went to seemed to
get more disturbing. It
made the Holocaust very

closes for registered participants only.


At 3 p.m. May 13, there
were roughly 650 registered participants and
approximately
$45,000
raised.
The event is possible
thanks to a faculty member at Cooper, one at Armstrong, an American Cancer Society representative
and 20-30 students on the
Relay for Life committee.
Cami Dahlstrom, a Cooper science teacher, has
participated in Relay for
Life the past seven years.
I have always felt I was
paying it forward until
this past year when I lost
a close family member to

cancer, she said. Now,


this event will have a very
different meaning for me.
Dahlstrom said relay
is an important event for
students because it makes
them a part of something
bigger than the normal
teenage issues. It provides
them an opportunity to
give back to the community and support those affected by cancer.
Hannah Carson, a junior at Cooper and one of
the committee members,
relays for all those affected
by cancer.
I have known many
people who are caregivers
or who have had cancer
themselves and that expe-

rience has made me want


to fight back so they wont
have to, she said.
This is Carsons first
year serving on the planning committee but she
has participated in previous years.
Im very excited for the
event this year because
our fundraising has been
going extremely well, she
said.
Carson enjoys how the
event brings together two
otherwise rival schools.
This event is very important to me and my
classmates because of the
community atmosphere
it brings while we are all
working towards a com-

Sussman said the most


difficult part of her fourmonth trip was missing her
family and friends back
home. Not knowing the
language of the locals was
also a challenge.
She will return home in
June with many priceless
souvenirs.
First and foremost, I
will take away so much
knowledge on Judaism and
Israel, she said. I am also
taking away an experience
that taught me so much
about independence. I am
very independent and it
has prepared me for life. I
will also take away a new
view on Judaism. Before
coming here, I didnt know
where I fell as a Jew. Now,
I found my place, and I understand the religion.
After high school, Sussman plans to attend college
with the hope of becoming
a doctor. This experience,
however, has inspired her
to look into a gap year between college and career.
This experience has
opened my eyes to see that
there is so much more to
the world than our small
American bubble, she
said. I want to see more
of the world before I go
into my career.

Nicole Hults, a junior

agrees the sense of community at the event is very
important.
Her third year on the

for nice weather, live music

and the improv show.


Hults relays for all but
her aunt Marla in particular.
This should be an incredible year and our relay

Ellen Sussman, a junior at


Hopkins High School, will
complete her study abroad
program in Israel May 26. She
has learned a lot about Judaism and Israel during her fourmonth stay. (Submitted photo)

real. Seeing it was an experience that I will never


forget.
She said her thoughts on
Judaism were not changed
much by her experience in
Poland.
As a Jew, I dont want
the Holocaust to shape
who I am, she said. The
Holocaust was six bad
years of Judaism but there
were thousands of amazing years. I want to focus
on the amazing parts of
Judaism.
When Sussman and
her classmates are not in
school, they explore the
community. They receive
two hours every day to
leave campus and see what
else Hod HaSharon has to
offer.
Weekends can be spent
with host families to experience what daily life in
Israel is like.
I really enjoy spending
time with Israeli families,
she said.
As Sussman nears the
end of her semester in Israel, she is not sure she can
choose her favorite part.
I have loved everything
we have done, she said.
My favorite part is the entire thing and all the tiyuls
(field trips) that we get to
go on. I also love learning
about everything Jewish
and Israel.
