Here is what actual patients have to say about their successful treatment for knee pain at Total Healthcare:
“My left knee was so painful that I had trouble bending the knee to sit down or even to find a comfortable sleeping position. I was limping badly when I walked, and found it impossible to climb stairs. The shots made all the difference in the world, making it possible to sit, stand, walk, climb stairs and sleep comfortably. Thank you so much for suggesting this treatment. I had no idea such a thing was possible.” — Linda “I have been able to do more work around the house in the past few weeks than I have been all summer. My stamina has gone through the roof and I have been able to stand for longer periods of time without pain. As far as I’m concerned, this was a total success for me!” — Milan

Total Healthcare & Physical Medicine

Rosefest 2013

So after Dr. Josh Norine, D.C. at Total Healthcare witnessed his own grandmother, Betty Jean, battle crippling knee pain for months on end, he decided he never wanted any of his patients have to go through the same experience. Betty Jean was an active senior who had enjoyed deep sea fishing and moose hunting before she decided to have total knee replacement surgery at age 81. But she couldn’t have imagined the awful pain she’d have to endure for months after it was over. “My grandmother is an incredibly strong lady, but the pain she was experiencing after the surgery was so intense, she cried,” Dr. Josh says. Dr. Josh notes that for some people, like his grandmother, the pain of rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery can be much worse than the pain they’d experienced prior to going under the knife. That’s why he decided to begin offering a new nonsurgical treatment program at Total Healthcare in Roseville for patients who’d like an alternative to total knee replacement. Over time, the natural fluid that cushions the knee joints can break down, resulting in horrible, bone-on-bone pain and stiffness, Dr. Josh explains. The safe, FDA-approved treatment offered at Total Healthcare involves a series of natural injections to restore that fluid.

Got knee pain? Total Healthcare can help I
t’s not easy to watch your loved ones suffer.
The injections, taken from rooster combs, have proven effective in reducing knee pain. “Surgery isn’t the only option, but most people think it is,” Dr. Josh explains. Some people might have already tried this treatment with little or no results, but Dr. Josh says patients at Total Healthcare can be nearly guaranteed pain relief, for two reasons. First, the staff at Total Healthcare offers in-house physical therapy designed to help patients heal fast. Second, Total Healthcare doctors use special equipment that allows them to see inside the knee so they can ensure the shot is injected into exactly the right place. The treatment program takes only one or two months, and there’s no downtime required. Pain relief can last for months after treatment, sometimes even years, Dr. Josh says, and Medicare and most insurance companies often cover a large percentage of the cost. Dr. Josh says he never wants to see his patients suffer like his grandmother did, and invites those who suffer from knee pain and stiffness to call Total Healthcare to see how they might benefit from this innovative treatment. Many Total Healthcare patients who undergo this treatment report being able to dance with a spouse once again or finally play with their grandchildren for the first time in years, Dr. Josh adds. “They can live again.”


The staff at Total Healthcare wants to help you feel your best.

Hansen, gymnasts named parade grand marshals
Dedication, effort and tradition could well be the themes of this year’s Rose Parade; they’re definitely the driving forces behind both the group and individual grand marshals. The 2013 Rose Parade will honor longtime volunteer Ken Hansen and the Roseville Area High School Gymnastics Team. Northfield took the championship.) Though Roseville only won one event -- the uneven bars -- in the multischool championship, the gymnasts proved they were truly team players, each submitting a strong enough performance to edge out other teams when counted as a whole. Review sports writer Brian Meyers explained: “In each event, each team has five gymnasts compete and the top four scores are added up to get the team score. On the uneven bars, the Raiders scored no lower than 9.45. Isis Muller led the way with a 9.7, the team’s highest individual score of the night. Emily VanKrevelen was next at 9.675 and was followed by Kaylee Strecker’s at 9.6 and Carly Wagner’s 9.45. “The vault was Roseville’s secondbest event as the team posted a score of 37.45. Muller posted the team’s best score with a 9.45, VanKrevelen and Wagner had identical 9.4s and Jessica Strecker scored a 9.2.
see Grand marshals on page 10

A legacy to take pride in
“This is, I think, their third time as grand marshals because of their many accomplishments throughout the years at state championships,” parade organizer Leslie Berry notes. “We’re honored to have this year’s state champion gymnasts as grand marshals -- they’re well-deserving of encouragement and praise from the community.” The RAHS gymnasts claimed the 2013 Class AA championship in an event-by-event, moment-by-moment struggle in which they outperformed perennial foe Northfield by just 0.375

Ken and Lorraine Hansen (pictured), and their daughter Diane Lang, have played a key role for many years in making sure the Rosefest parade is a wonderful event.

civic pride that bound that community together. So, Ken threw himself into fundraising for the parade and rounding up grand prizes for the button contest. He found it most effective to research local stores and businesses and drop in on their leaders for face-to-face encounters; that made it more difficult for them to say “no.” Plus, “my career had been in sales,” he adds with a chuckle. Some years, he singlehandedly brought in as much as $20,000. Ken “was out pounding the pavement for days at a time,” Berry recalls. “He’s also helped with buttons. He’s just been everything to the parade.” Ken’s wife, Lorraine, who Berry says is the “Rose parade historian,” remembers that in only two years -- this will be its 23rd appearance -- the parade was rained out. A darker time, Lorraine says, was the year after the recession hit. “Our city manager announced they were going to cut the parade....We said ‘No way.’” Thanks to Ken’s fundraising and over-and-above efforts from Rosefest fans, the show went on. “Everyone came out and we got the money together somehow.” Lorraine and daughter Diane Lang will have to wave to Ken from the sidelines; they’re going to be busy with their own Rose Parade duties. Diane is in charge of parade participation and Lorraine organizes the marching bands, as she’s done since 1992. “I just love music and I love bands, and they only had about four or five marching bands the first and second year of the parade,” Lorraine notes. “I thought, ‘This is one way to get these high schools involved, and I just got busy and invited a whole bunch.’” As a former drum and bugle corps mom, Lorraine knows the arrangements and organization the bands need. The music fan sometimes outdoes herself, though. “A few years ago, I kinda went overboard and had 17 of them!” she exclaims. At that point, it gets difficult to find enough floats and Scout groups to separate one band’s trumpets and bass drums from another’s, she admits. This year’s parade will draw bands from as far away as Waconia and

“Roseville scored a 37.3 on the floor exercise with VanKrevelen posting the team’s highest individual score of 9.675. Kaylee Strecker added a 9.5, Muller had a 9.375 and Jessica Strecker scored an 8.750. “Roseville’s lowest event score of 36.525 came on its first event of the night, the balance beam. Muller’s 9.4 was the Raiders’ best beam score but their lowest high individual event score of the night. Jessica Strecker added a 9.225, Wagner had a 9.05 and Kayla Soplata had an 8.85.” Several of the Raiders also got the chance to shine in individual competition at State. Wagner won the individual uneven bars state championship, with a 9.8. Muller ranked second statewide in the all-around, with a score of 37.95. Jessica Strecker medaled by placing sixth on the balance beam with a score of 9.4. Wagner posted Roseville’s highest finish on the vault by placing 10th and Muller had Roseville’s best floor exercise finish, 12th.

Just wanted to give back to community
Without the work of Ken and Lorraine Hansen and their daughter Diane Lang, there might be Rosefest parades, but there certainly wouldn’t have been such a successful, seamless 20-plus-year run. That’s why Ken Hansen, 88, is grand marshal of the parade, organizer Leslie Berry explains. “He has been part of the backbone of the Rose Parade committee almost since the inception,” she says. “As he’s stepping down from such active fundraising, it was a unanimous decision to honor him this year.” In the early 1990s the Rose Parade was just getting off the ground, and needed all the financial help it could get to grow and continue. The community effort sounded great to the Hansens, who’d just retired and wanted to spend their newfound time to give back. Both hail from the Gladstone area of Maplewood and remember the

rust and confidence are key in the coin industry, and customers from all over Minnesota and the U.S. have found an extraordinary guide in Roger Westerling of The Truman Company.
Devoting himself to the rare coin and precious metal trade for well over three decades, Westerling’s commitment to the customer is second to none. From their Roseville office, he and his associates offer purchases and appraisals for estates, banks, insurance companies and individuals. “My staff and I are dedicated to helping people preserve and grow their wealth,” Westerling explains. “That’s why The Truman Company offers personalized service tailored to each individual.” Introduced to the business by his Uncle Truman, a young Roger became enamored with coins. This nearly-lifelong passion encouraged Westerling to open his own business under the Truman name. “Every time he visited my family, he gave me a coin that had an interesting history. His hope was that I would develop a real interest in rare and unusual coins, and it worked,” Westerling says with a smile. Westerling visited Minnesota to appraise a collection in 1998, and was so touched by the welcome he received he decided to move both his home and business to St. Paul.

The Truman Company: a valuable source for coins and precious metals

This is a look at the variety of coins and pieces in The Truman Company’s collection. With 37 years’ experience in the field, Roger Westerling can appraise and handle a wide range of inventory.

ket for everything!” Though old coins appreciate gradually, precious metals have undergone dramatic spikes over the past decade in value, Westerling adds. From 2002 to 2013, the value of silver went up by 668 percent and gold by 595 percent. Many of Westerling’s customers are currently transferring individual retirement account funds from banks to a precious metal IRA. “I honestly think the prices for gold and silver will continue to rise throughout our lifetime, while the U.S. dollar declines,” Westerling explains. “Transferring to a precious metal IRA can be an excellent investment.” Customers will feel at home in The Truman Company office, where they might even meet

Westerling’s pooch, Sonny, and his wife, Donna, a Twin Cities artist whose work is featured throughout the office. Curious about the worth of

a personal collection? Roger Westerling and his staff at The Truman Company are ready to help.

explaining to students what the festival is looking for as far as identity and themes and then turning the students loose on designs. Finnegan, who was Gustafson’s graphic design teacher this past year, says the students up their game for the competition and they enjoy the rivalry between one another. “Once the kids get started they really put themselves into it,” Finnegan says. “There’s a competitive nature to the project that they enjoy and a sense of pride when they finish.” She says she was not surprised that Gustafson took the top prize. “He’s very talented in graphic design and has good programming skills. He has a technical mind and a knack for coming up with good ideas.

Rosefest 2013
At 85, Lorraine is still fired up about marching bands. “I just love music and I love the kids. We’re lucky enough to have our local VFW feed all these kids after the parade, and they’ve been so impressed. The kids are polite, they’re friendly and they’re just great citizens. One year the VFW had men who were going to volunteer to clean the grounds afterward, and they couldn’t find one napkin to pick up.” Berry notes that the Hansens could use some help from a younger generation of volunteers. “To keep Rosefest vibrant, we need that younger generation to step up,” she says. “The time to get involved is now, not later.” Lorraine predicts that the music, the kids and the fun will hook others just as they did her. Though she works from 8 a.m. to nearly midnight on the day of the parade, she keeps signing on for more. “I keep on saying every year ‘This’ll be my last year,’ but then the night after it’s all over with, Diane says, ‘You know, Ma, it’s been so much fun -- you think we should do it next year again?’”

Litchfield -- Litchfield has been a regular since the early years. Nearer to home are Champlin Park and St. Anthony’s entries. “Park Center is new this year, and they’re quite a competitive band. It’s just like football or basketball to these kids -- they’re intent on being the best,” Lorraine says. After the bands line up, she’ll be sitting in the judge’s booth with judge Tom Haugen, former band director at Kellogg High School, who travels from Decorah, Iowa each year to judge the bands and hand out prizes. Thanks to Ken’s work fundraising -- the parade helps pay travel expenses for the bands -- and Lorraine’s talent for organization, the Rose Parade has become a favorite among high school bands. Lorraine notes the Minnesota Brass drum and bugle corps, an all-ages group that won the national competition in 2011 will also be in the parade.

Roseville Suburban Ace gears up for Summer
“People are excited for Summer, and we have lots of Summer things in – new paints, tools, lawn mowers, trimmers, sprinkler, hoses and other lawn-care products,” says store owner Mike Johnson. “This year we have hanging baskets and pots of colorful, assorted flowers as well.” Roseville Suburban Ace, a popular local hardware store on the corner of Lexington and Roselawn avenues, is known for its helpful, friendly service. The store is also widely-known for carrying top-name brands, and has recently added to that lineup with Craftsman tools, Clark and Kensington paints and Scotts’ new “Snap” lawn care system. Ace’s affiliation with Craftsman means customers can find a full line of Craftsman wrenches, hand tools, air tools, shop vacs and other power equipment, with more available by special order, says assistant manager Dave Floberg. The new Clark and Kensington paint is “darn good stuff,” adds Floberg, who explains all the paints in the store are made by Ace and score well in Consumer Reports. With the primer in the paint, Clark and Kensington can save customers elbow grease and time. Scotts’ new Snap system promises the greatest change for homeowners, taking the guesswork out of lawn care and the mess off their hands. With the Snap system, lawn care products like fertilizer, weed killer or crabgrass preventer are packaged so they just clip into the Snap lawn spreader. There’s no measuring, pouring or handling chemicals. With cutting-edge products and years of expertise on staff, the Suburban Ace crew sees customers coming in from all over the area, Floberg says. Employee Troy Williams adds, “People would rather come here than the big-box stores because we know what we’re talking about, we’ve got what you need and we greet you the minute you walk in the door.” “It’s easier to go to Ace than any place else, and I like their courteous service,” he says. Women are a growing part of the

Left, Roseville Suburban Ace is your one-stop shop when it comes to lawn care needs. Right, all the high quality paints in the store are made by Ace. The brand was rated No. 1 in Consumer Reports.

store’s customer base, as they gain confidence in their do-it-yourself abilities. Williams says plumbing seems to be a project more women are willing to tackle, noting a widow who decided she could complete a repair herself after store staff showed her what she needed and walked her through the process. “She was happy to get the job done herself,” Williams recalls. “We can often

help people fix something on their own. They’re saving money and adding skills.” Those turning more of their thoughts to taking care of outdoor lawns, planting flowers or maybe adding to their outdoor decor always find a helping hand at Ace. “With the hazy lazy days of summer almost upon us, we’re well stocked with grills, lawnmowers and garden supplies,” Floberg says.

Outdoor living furniture can now be ordered from the Ace warehouse through the store’s colorful catalog, and benches for the yard are in the store. The new Toro and Craftsman lawnmowers are in so come by and check them out. Johnson suggests that people who need lawnmowers repaired should bring them in now, before the summer rush starts. He adds that once new folks stop in, they usually become regulars. “We appreciate our customers and strive to provide superior customer service,” Johnson adds. “We pride ourselves on answering their questions and helping them get going on their projects. And we want this to be a fun and friendly place to shop as well.”

as well as the partnership with Roseville Area High School. “We’re just happy to be able to highlight student work, and the interaction with the high school has just been seamless.” Berry says every year the Rosefest committee chooses a winner, which Berry notes is a tough choice. “Not only is Garrett’s button fantastic, so many of the designs are great. I know in past years the city’s Parks and Recreation Department has used student designs for other programs, such as Music in the Parks and Run for the Roses. It’s just wonderful to see high school students’ designs go out into the ‘real world’ and speaks to the talent we have right here in Roseville.” Roseville’s Garrett plans to continue working with art in the future. He will attend the Minneapolis Media Institute this fall to study Game Art and Animation.

Toasted marshmallows & outdoor fun on tap at Nature Center June 22
Rain or shine, the Harriet Alexander Nature Center in Roseville will be hopping with activity Saturday, June 22, as kids and adults enjoy Rosefest’s annual group campfire and the Great American Backyard Campout. You don’t have to have be an expert at roasting marshmallows over an open fire or pitching a tent to join in the fun. Nature Center naturalist Debbie Cash says people of all ages and levels of expertise will take part in the campfire event and the tent camping under the stars. If thunderstorms pass through the area that evening, everyone will migrate indoors and make s’mores the traditional campfire treat - in the nature center’s kitchen microwave. And the group that’s camping will set up the tents inside the nature center for an indoor sleepover.

Campfire and cookout
Folks will be bringing their lawn chairs and gathering around the campfire ring for storytelling, songs, s’mores and lawn games at the Nature Center beginning at 7 p.m. Area resident Margaret Cummings says she always marks the campfire date on her calendar. “I think it’s my favorite event during the year in all of Roseville. “It’s an amazing, multi-generational event, and you don’t have to have children to do it.” Up to 50 people at a time will sit around the fire and sing favorite folk songs such as “This Land Is Your Land” and “Frog Went A-Courtin,”

Often there’s a storyteller to enthrall the group and kids play old-fashioned, outdoor games. Cummings says, “I’ve seen a wide range of people there; it’s inclusive, easy-going and a ‘come-as-you-are’ event. “What’s not to like?,” she adds. “And it’s free!”

Great American Backyard Campout
Registered campers will arrive at the Nature Center at 5 p.m. June 22 to begin pitching their tents on the lawn of Central Park Elementary School. Since the Nature Center doesn’t have any flat land, the tents are set up on the adjacent, grassy schoolyard. The Great American Backyard Campout is sponsored by the Roseville REI store, and participants can either use their own tents or REI provides tents

and sleeping pads free of charge for those folks who don’t have camping equipment. “Families can pay $12 for a campsite and that includes some setup help with the REI staff.” The tent campers get to take advantage of the group campfire, and then at 9:30 p.m. have a choice of an open-air movie or a night hike. In the morning, the campers are served a continental breakfast, break camp and head home by 9 a.m. Cash characterizes it as a “practice campout” in a safe, controlled environment for people who haven’t camped before or haven’t camped for a long time. It’s also a chance for families to introduce small children to the joys of camping. Should something go wrong, the Nature Center staff is there to help out the entire time. “Some families come year after year ... and the kids get to sleep under the see Campout on page 19

Page 19
they still get the experience of sleeping in a tent.” While the campout does take place in a “controlled” environment, Cash laughs as she says there’s no way to predict what might happen out in nature. Although the campout hasn’t been visited by any of the wild critters commonly known as “campsite robbers,” Cash says, they’ve seen raccoons nearby but none have ventured into the camping area. She speculates the raccoons just didn’t know what to make of the startling sight of tents on the school grounds and scampered away. And since the campers didn’t have food in the tent area, she says there weren’t any choice morsels for the animals to sneak off with for a midnight snack. Cash says she recently attended a community-ed class and the instructor came up to her and explained that her family has attended the campout since the beginning six years ago, and is already looking forward to coming again this year. To join in the outdoor camping fun, register for the Great American Backyard Campout by calling the Harriet Alexander Nature Center at 651-7927012.
