GOVERNMENT CENTER—On Thursday, Sept. 6, the Public Safety Committee heard reports on several advancements designed to enhance current operations. Child Support Department Manager Shelly Hatch reported to the board that texting software was implemented to enhance communications with clients. Hatch anticipates the office will also be able to use the software to deliver canned blast messages out to contacts, saving the time it takes for staff to call each person in a list. “Everyone has cell phones now.

SIREN–– The Siren Police Department has accepted a check from Karlee Sybers that will allow the department to purchase new body camera’s for the officers. She raised the $400 from a car wash held over the summer in Siren. Sybers, of the National Honor Society at Siren High School, told the board about the car wash and explained that it was “a huge success in giving back to the community.” She then presented the check to her father, Chief of Police Chris Sybers. He said that the department currently has body cameras that are six or seven years old. Sybers stuck around at the meeting to give his police report which centered around a flower thief that has allegedly been going around and stealing flower baskets from the village. Two flower baskets were stolen in the last few weeks. The baskets cost about $60 each. Village President Dave Alden said charges SEE VILLAGE BOARD, PAGE 2

Thomas found guilty in McKenzie Landing slashing case JONATHAN RICHIE EDITOR@BURNETTCOUNTYSENTINEL.COM

BURNETT COUNTY–– Allen G. Thomas, Pepin, 55, was found guilty on both charges of aggravated battery with the intent of causing great bodily harm. He will be sentenced in November and faces up to 30 years in prison and $100,000 in fines. The two victims were sitting in the front row in the courtroom when Washburn County Circuit Judge Eugene Harrington stated he was finding Thomas guilty of slashing their throats outside of McKenzie Landing Bar and Restaurant in the Town of Scott in July 2016.

Thomas claimed on the first day of the trial that he had been involuntarily drugged while at the bar by a “punk rocker with dreadlocks”. He said that when he was allegedly drugged he had a flashback and thought he heard the victims speaking Russian.

throats, Thomas fled the scene and went home to Pepin to drink himself to sleep. Judge Harrington said Thomas’ job in the military would have been to observe, report and defend the border. By fleeing the scene, Thomas was not showing the attitude of a soldier. Harrington added that he spent the previous night trying to come up with some kind of reason for why Thomas would commit this crime and admitted that he hadn’t come up with any reason. After Harrington said Thomas was guilty, he ordered a SEE THOMAS, PAGE 2

need to be pressed against the culprit because of all of the labor that goes into caring for these flowers. Other board members echoed the same point. “We need to set a precedent that we don’t take these things lightly,” said Village Trustee Rudy Mothes. The board approved a preliminary clearing of the Industrial Park. Village Trustee Jim Pearson brought up the idea at the August meeting, but because it was not on the agenda no action could be taken. When the board discussed it last week at their monthly meeting there was no opposition. They agreed that clearing some of the space in the industrial park will make it more welcoming to new business moving in. They approved the project at a cost of less than $20,000. Pearson estimated in August that it would cost around $9,000. The Village got hourly rates from Hopkins Sand & Gravel for a dozer, $186 an

sometimes there is no answer, but It seems like they will answer a text,” Hatch said. “The first day we were using it, we were trying to get someone to come in and sign something. We couldn’t get a hold of them, but we sent them a message, and they responded right away.” The Emergency Management Department is also looking to use cell phone technology to enhance services. Sponsored by the United Way, 211 is a resource that allows users to find information on food, shelter, financial assistance and other domestic support resources. While in place year-round, 211 can be used for data collection on damages and unmet needs during disaster situations. “A lot of people didn’t use it during the flooding because they didn’t know about it,” said Tolbert, which is why the 2018 tax bills will include an insert on the 211 system. The committee also discussed having them available at the November election sites. A related system involves emergency notification, using keyword selection to allow distribution of messages regarding any number of topics. Tolbert noted that this type of system is helpful for tourists, who have their phones with them but don’t know whom to contact. The system will be funded for three years with a combination of grant money and some budget funds. Clerk of Court Trudy Schmidt reported that the pending caseload remains constant at around 925 cases, and there are about 1,259 active warrants. It is especially hard to collect on outstanding commitments when the subject lives out of state. “A lot of these are bad check entries from 2004-2005,” Clerk of Court Trudy Schmidt said. “Maybe we could turn them into county ordinances and get them done and onto collections instead.” The Clerk of Courts office and the District Attorney’s office are looking into that option. Schmidt also discussed with the board the subject of costs associated with a court-appointed attorney. Court-appointed attorneys are assigned when the public defender’s office cannot find an attorney, at twice the price to the county government. The county can bill the state and

hour, and an excavator, $155 and hour. In other items: The board discussed cleaning up the right-ofway of Alden Road. Doug Crane, of North Country Surveying Inc., was invited to the meeting because

receive reimbursement at the public defender rate, but the Clerk of Courts is looking at ways to recoup more of that cost. “Under the public defender appointment, there is a small fee (plaintiffs) have to pay,” Schmidt said. “I’m going to ask (Judge Mogen) if we can institute that. It’s $60. We may get that back from the offender.” The Sheriff’s Department’s Radio Communication/Technology Specialist Steve Sacharski advised that tower sites around the county have received some tender loving care in the past months in the form of summer maintenance. There were also some unplanned repairs that need tending. The fencing around the tower at the Grantsburg site was damaged over Watercross weekend near the gate to the tower. “It’s hard to prove who did it. They left me some beer cans. I only assume it might be (campers),” Sacharski said. “I haven’t found anything damaged and no reports of anyone climbing the tower. They probably went in for electricity, since there are external outlets on the building.” When asked if this was a one-time incident, Sacharski admitted that some damage to the fence happens each year. This is due to a combination of factors. The tower’s location inside the fairgrounds makes it easily accessible, the current fencing is shorter and lacks security wire found on most tower site, and it lacks notices regarding trespassing. Sacharski said he is researching sign and fencing options to help secure the tower. IN OTHER ITEMS: • Jackie Baasch reported the Register in Probate department instituted mandatory electronic filing for guardianship and mental health cases and added that things are going very well so far. • The committee approved the resignations of Deputy Sheriff Cole Gabrick and Jailer/Dispatcher Mystie Anton and approval given for posting. • An inquiry from Drug Court was made regarding transportation options for participants to atten mandatory meetings. There was some discussion but further research is needed.

SEPTEMBER 12, 2018

Never Forget I was riding on the school bus on the way to Riverside Elementary School when 19 terrorists and members of al-Qaeda hijacked four planes on Sept. 11, 2001. I was outside for morning/before school recess when I first heard about it. “You don’t even know what happened,” I heard one of the popular girls say. “You’re just lying to me.” Our entire grade, except the cool kids, were playing state tag – a map of the U.S. is painted on the concrete in between the kickball field and foursquare courts. My buddy, Chad, responds to her comment with, “Yes, I do. They flew a plane into the buildings in New York.” That’s all I heard. I did not know if they were talking about a movie or something that happened on TV the night before. I just know that’s what I heard, but it didn’t take long Sentinel to figure out what he was talking about. Editor Renee Doll was my teacher, and Jonathan Richie as soon as we were settled at our desks Mr. Thomas, the principal, came over the loud speaker. He explained as simply as possible that terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center. Then he gave instructions to the teachers about how to discuss the topic with students. Miss Doll attempted to have a conversation about the attack. One of my buddies said he knew about war because he had seen a guy lose his leg in the film, “The Patriot.” Another student claimed one of her mom’s friends had died in the attacks. Some of my classmates were asked to stand somberly in the hallway with miniature American flags for a “Never forget” picture that would be prominently placed in the yearbook. Our grade also led a march of solidarity, which included all students at Riverside, around the school holding the same mini-flags. That was fifth grade. During my freshman year of college, I had the news on near the anniversary. The broadcaster said something to the effect of ‘almost the same amount of days had passed as had died on 9/11 – 2,977. On October 8, 2001 the United States began their global war on terrorism. They fought wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and countless other places. The Nation wrote back in May, “Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute published an estimate of the taxpayer dollars that will have gone into America’s War on Terror from September 12, 2001, through fiscal year 2018. That figure: a cool $5.6 trillion (including the future costs of caring for our war vets). On average, that’s at least $23,386 per taxpayer.” The war in Afghanistan is almost 17 years old. It already is old enough to drive, so it’s got freedom to do what it wants. In a few months it will be old enough to buy cigarettes and vote. I just hope it ends before it can get drunk. Lastly- Rest In Peace, Mac Miller. Gotta question? Gotta tip? It’s easy to contact me, give me a call at 715-463-2341 or shoot me an email editor@burnettcountysentinel.com.

Driving is already multitasking Ahh, the wonders of technology. It seems that every day there is news of some wonderful advance, some new piece of technology that will revolutionize our lives. Other days, there are products announced or advertised that make you wonder if we are using technology to improve our lives or if we are becoming too lazy for our own good. There has been a lot of talk lately about technology and driving. The federal government is considering banning the use of some cellular telephones by drivers, namely text messaging. Distractions can be fatal. Technology usually moves at a faster pace than society. We often From the Publisher’s can do many things before we truly realize the societal implications of Desk the use of technology. From stem cell research to cloning to text messaging Tom Stangl while driving, we don’t always think it through before diving in head first. This is, of course, human nature. Ever since the automobile was invented, engineers have worked to make the vehicles safer, comfortable and easy to drive. In the early days, there were people that postulated that people could not survive traveling at speeds of over 30 miles per hour (mph). Safety and convenience improvements have continued over the years. Safety glass, which crumbles on impact, safety belts, automatic transmissions, cruise control and airbags have all added to safety and made vehicles much easier to drive. Ironically, many automakers were slow to add safety belts because the conventional wisdom of the time was that if a car had safety belts, it wasn’t safe.

car maker. The vehicle can sense when the driver is drowsy or distracted, and will alert the driver as well as make corrections to the steering and slow the vehicle. Pretty impressive technology. It reminded me of a safety experiment that Packard, America’s premier luxury car maker of the first half of the 20th century performed: the radar brake. The concept was a good one, as they all are at first: a radar device would be placed in the car, and when it sensed an object was too close, it would apply the brakes. Great way to avoid accidents. There was just one problem: they couldn’t refine the beam, so a driver going down a street with parked cars was constantly stopping and starting, with the radar brake sensing every object as a threat. It never made it past the prototype. Items that once were exotic and expensive toys on high end cars are now standard equipment on many. With a functioning Global Positioning System (GPS) to guide you, cruise control to regulate your speed and an emergency response service like OnStar, you might think that driving had become so easy that you could literally do it in your sleep. You would be wrong. So, we’ve made driving a bit too easy, so easy that some feel they can send text messages, focusing on the small screen and keypad, taking their eyes off of the road. Look, if we can’t get this straight, how will we ever get flying cars? We’ve been promised flying cars since the end of World War II. I want one. So, could I get a little help here, so maybe I could ride in one before I die? As always, I welcome your comments.

The Journal changed its name to “Journal and Sentinel”, but later reverted to the Journal of Burnett County. When the Journal folded in 1962, Wilbur A. Nelson revived the Burnett County Sentinel. Following his death in 1975, his wife, Marjorie Nelson and son, Gary Nelson operated it until Feb. 1, 1994, when it was purchased by Mainstream Publications. It was then purchased by Eugene Johnson on Dec. 1, 1998.

What do you see as the role of the State in controlling the DNR, especially for mining, clean air & water, and game management? Editor’s note: Leading up to the midterm elections, the Upper St. Croix Valley League of Women Voters has posed a series of questions to local candidates on issues important to northwest Wisconsin. BY KIM BUTLER, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE, ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 28

“...The preservation of our environment is not a partisan challenge; it’s common sense. Our physical health, our social happiness, and our economic well being will be sustained only by all of us working in partnership as thoughtful, effective stewards of our natural resources.” - President Ronald Reagan, July 11, 1984 “All economic activity is depend upon that environment and its underlying resource base of forests, water, air, soil, and minerals. When the environment is finally forced to file for bankruptcy because its resource base has been polluted, degraded, dissipated and irretrievably compromised, the economy goes into bankruptcy with it.” - Former U.S. Congressman, Wisconsin Governor, and founder of Earth Day, Gaylord Nelson President Reagan, and Clear Lake native Gaylord Nelson realized long ago the importance of environmental protection and that such stewardship should override politics and unfettered economic growth. Sadly, I think that lesson has been lost as our Department of Natural Resources has become

little more than a permitting factory in recent years. I don’t think the environment should be a political football. I am frustrated that protecting the environment has become a political issue, and seen as a “Business/ Jobs” versus “EnvironmenKim Butler tal Stewardship” and protecting our natural resources. Like many issues, I don’t see this as an either/or issue, but an ‘and’ issue. We can grow the economy AND protect our environment. Of course Republicans and Democrats both want clean air and water, and vibrant fish and wildlife, and public lands for sports men and women. But I sometimes wonder why Republican legislators don’t defer more often to experts. Former DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp basically got rid of the science department at the WI DNR. No scientists at an agency tasked with protecting our natural resources? As usual, Wisconsin’s loss was Minnesota’s gain, as many of these scientists have been re-employed by our neighboring state. I am not a scientist, and I won’t play one in the legislature. I respect experts, whether they be scientists, geologists, biologists, hydrologists, etc. Scientific understanding and data offer the best window

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor, RE: National Arts in Education Week from Sept. 9–15, 2018 We here at Northwest Passage know all too well the importance of the arts in education. We serve a diverse set of learners in a unique classroom setting. Without the power of expression that art brings to our students, learning is stunted. We use outdoor classrooms that allows students to feel the seasons and discuss the scientific reasons for the weather. We practice nature photography which aids teachers in their science, English, and biology lessons. Teachers encourage the students to use creative writing exercises, such as written reflections, that allows students to put the concepts they’re learning into their own words. But art isn’t just good for the student’s learning, it is good for their minds. A child engaging in pottery or music is using parts of their mind that can help them to do better in the classroom later. The arts are essential to success in the classroom. Join us in learning more about the importance of equitable access to arts education so that every learner in Wisconsin succeeds.

into environmental conditions and problems. Therefore, I don’t feel the “state” has a role in “controlling” the DNR any more than any other agency. Obviously, the state controls the budget of the DNR, but I don’t believe the budget should be used as a bludgeon to force policy changes. The agency should be fully funded so it can fulfill its mission. Local, and state governments should work in partnership with the DNR to protect our natural resources while serving the interests of sportsmen and sportswomen, farmers, landowners, lake shore owners and businesses. Keeping our state healthy and our economy strong, vibrant and growing should be a shared mission of both the DNR and state and local governments. Has there been some overreach on the part of the DNR? Probably. As I meet voters on the campaign trail, I hear stories about permits being denied for structures that have existed for years, nuisance tickets for snowmobile tags, and farmers no longer being allowed to farm plots they’ve farmed for decades. This is something we should work to fix. On the other hand, the DNR has suffered an enormous loss of staff and resources. While it may be annoying to be ticketed for expired tags on your ATV, we can’t forget that the DNR is the agency that comes through with large grants to clean up your lake, or fences your berry farm when the deer become too much of a nuisance At a recent lake district meeting, there was an audible gasp from the audience when a member of the local government explained that there was no longer a Wildlife Biologist for Polk County. From what I hear, DNR personnel who remain are spread thinly. With regards to Chronic Wasting Disease, it’s been on the increase in our state. We can’t wish it away. I am not an expert in this area, but since it is increasing, I would advise that we listen to and implement the recommendations of wildlife biologists and others studying this disease. Same with mining. The DNR’s reports on the effects of various mining operations, or potential mining operations are based on evidence-based science. We can create jobs without poisoning

If you were to ask every Wisconsinite if they are in favor of clean air and water, the overwhelming majority would probably say something along the line of: “Yes, of course I am!” As humans, we need clean air and water to survive. This is not a partisan issue - it is a simple fact that we need clean air and water. There is not Republican clean air and Democrat clean air. I was born and raised in Northwestern Wisconsin and choose to live here for the rest of my days - our natural resources are one of the reasons why. There are few things that are more important to this part of the state than our lakes and streams. The homes that are built on them provide a tax base so that our roads are plowed and our schools are maintained. The businesses that are built around water recreation rely on them to keep their doors open. The tourism industry relies on them for the steady flow of visitors from downstate and from across the St. Croix River. We simply cannot survive without them. However, I believe that there needs to be a balance - we can protect our beautiful natural resources while understanding that our economy in Northwestern Wisconsin relies heavily on people enjoying and using these resources. I am a staunch advocate for property rights and people having the ability to use their property as they wish, within the law. The DNR, I can assure you, does not under regulate property owners, especially riparian owners.

FIEDLER FORD, INC.

As a Conservative, I believe in getting the government out of peoples’ lives. With the right balance, property rights and modest regulation can be achieved. Further, this state was built on mining. Our state flag is adorned with a miner. The mascot, the Wisconsin Badger, is derived from Wisconsin’s long history of mining. Since becoming a state, the Gae Magnafici legislature has passed laws that regulate the practice of mining. The DNR should be regulating this industry, but not regulating it out of existence. Mining provides family supporting jobs for men and women across this state. Instead of vilifying this industry, the DNR and the State of Wisconsin should be propping it up and creating a climate to allow its growth with reasonable safeguards in place to protect air and water. As for game management, the DNR has been doing this for many years and should continue to do so. The economy of Northern Wisconsin also relies heavily on our rich hunting heritage. When deer herds are down and there is little game to hunt, businesses in this area struggle in the later part of the year. I look forward to working with the DNR to continue to manage the game in this state so that hunting remains a tradition for families to enjoy for generations to come. Looking forward, if the federal government listens to the calls from leaders in our state to delist the wolf from the Endangered Species List, Wisconsin and other states can once again manage our own wolf populations. Wolves have caused so much destruction in Northern Wisconsin and it is time for it to end. Families have had pets killed, farmers are losing livestock, and our deer herd is being killed off by wolves. Should the wolf be delisted, I will make it a priority to work with the DNR to reinstate Wisconsin’s wolf management plan - this is not the federal government’s job, it is ours.

Water is a shared resource, and the rights of all stakeholders should be considered when permitting a high capacity well. Good environmental stewardship protects not only our health and the health of our children and grandchildren, but our property values, our tourism industry, hunting and fishing opportunities, and the beauty and wild spaces that Wisconsin is known for.

Food ingredient I am most thankful for, salt I get asked the same questions when people find out I write about food. By far the most popular is, “What are you cooking for dinner tonight?” And “What is your favorite food?” Or interesting questions, such as“What is the weirdest food you’ve Wild Chow eaten? (answer: Cured Lisa Erickson Jellyfish)” Or, “If you were on death row, what would you want for dinner? (answer: BBQ ribs, corn on the cob, and homemade potato salad)” Recently, someone asked, “What is the single most

critical ingredient when you’re cooking?” Salt. Yes, plain and simple salt. Think about it. Without salt, everything would taste bland. Even sweet things wouldn’t be as good without salt. Ever forgotten to add salt to a cake or cookie recipe? Salt can invoke different things from different people. I remember sitting across from my grandfather as he generously sprinkled salt onto what I thought was already “salty” pizza. It made me shiver. I also remember the time my dad forgot to salt his famous pea soup for Christmas Eve. I must have reached for the salt shaker at least three times before it tasted like my dad’s soup. Recently, I tried to imagine what pizza or potato chips

would taste like without salt. They both depend on salt. It’s what I crave when I want those foods. Not all salt is created equal. For years my family made fun of me for having at least 6-7 different types of salt, but now they even request certain kinds depending on what is being served. At the dinner table there are usually at least three choices: table salt, pink Himalayan, and Maldon or Fleur de Sel. Why so many salts? Some foods taste better with a different kind of salt. I like plain table salt with my eggs. My favorite way to eat a steak is with crunchy Fleur de Sel or Maldon. Himalayan salt is earthy and has a mineral

taste which I like with baked potatoes, rice or pasta. Regardless, of what kind of salt I’m using, I’m so glad I have it. Try different salts with this recipe using potatoes and other root vegetables such as beets, carrots, parsnips and turnips. Salty Baked Veggie Chips Adapted from Taste of Home 2 beets 2 potatoes 1 sweet potato 3 Tbsp corn oil 2 Tbsp granulated Parmesan cheese 1/2 tsp salt (Try different kinds to see if you can taste the difference. If you use table salt, remember it can taste saltier and contain more sodium than

We had a bit of scare this week as a gas line broke while the Village had some digging being done. Streets were blocked off, and several homes were evacuated for a few hours. Congratulations to the Grantsburg football team’s win over Turtle Lake! We were blessed with some fabulous weather that makes attending more pleasurable. The enjoyable weather continued as many were attending fall fests or family gatherings. Or maybe you were one who spent the weekend doing outdoor chores. Like mowing the yards (several in our neighborhood did at the same time) or cutting wood in preparation for those cooler days to come. (you know the days with flakes!) Come on ladies!

GOVERNMENT CENTER — The Administration committee went through all 2019 budget proposals on Monday. They made a few minor changes, but since this was the preliminary review there is time to make other changes before the 2019 budget will be finalized in November. “This is the first review,” County Chair Don Taylor said. “We’re going to have two or three other meetings before anything is finalized.” County Supervisor and committee member Gary Lundberg said he went through the budget proposals line item by line item. He came to the meeting — which lasted over four hours — with a list of items he wanted to discuss. One of those budget items included over $14,000 in contributions to the four senior centers in the county. Another item was contribution to the Forts Folle Avoine. Lundberg also questioned the new LEEDs project – cabin campers. Kari Letch and Susan Tollander of the Forest and Parks Department gave a presentation for the Leadership through Effective and Efficient Designs (LEED’s) program. Their request was to build two cabin campers on county forest land and rent them out for added revenue. “Those are going to cost $20,000 each,” Lundberg stated. “Why do we need to have two right away? If they’re expected to make the return on investment after two years, that’s one thing. But if we just build one, that’s $20,000 right there we can save.” He also questioned why the county donates money to the senior centers.

“We should look at why we give them that kind of money,” Lundberg said. “We also should look at why the county funds some of these things like the fairs in Burnett County.” County Administrator Nate Ehalt said the levy limit has not increased for 2019 and that they are expecting less than $50,000 from taxes. “With that little coming in from taxes we have to be smart with our money,” Ehalt said. “We have to do as much as we can with that amount without cutting goods and services to people.” County Supervisor and committee member Richard Anderson simplified it for Lundberg, “What do we fund and what do we choose not to fund?” Ehalt explained that they have eliminated a position at UW-Extension, previously held by Mike Kornman, and an office position at the highway department. The committee also discussed two limited term employees (LTE) for the jailer/dispatch position. At first they were considering cutting the two positions, but after Jail Administrator Mark Schmidt spoke, the committee left the positions in the budget for now. At the conclusion of the meeting Taylor summarized it, “We’re reducing the camper cabins to one and adding a position in the Health and Human Services department to help with their understaffing concerns.

Hockey association asks for help and ideas discussed moving the large gymnastic floor. It was suggested the floor could be moved into the corner away from the kitchen area in the community center. Then it could be sectioned off so wedding receptions and other events scheduled to use the space won’t disturb the equipment.

GRANTSBURG–– “If this community wants an indoor rink, we need your help.� That was Rick Quimby’s message to the Grantsburg Village Board, he was joined by the entire Board of Directors for the Grantsburg Hockey Association at Monday’s meeting. Led by McKenna Marek, Association President, the board was asking for help and suggestions. Marek explained to them that interest levels are down. She said that last year they had a total of eight families sign-up for a total of 11 players. Rick Quimby gave a breakdown of the associations financial situation. They have an annual operating budget of about $90,000, “our revenue are short of $60,000,� which leaves them short $30,000. One of the biggest revenue streams for the association is Watercross. That changed in 2012 when that event began to decline. He came to the board’s August meeting to explain a possible shift in Watercross to attract more music fans than just racing fans. Quimby told the board the best case scenario would be for the village to buy the building and the association would rent the space. “I understand that the village is not in a place to make that purchase, but it’s how cities are

doing it now,� Quimby explained. “The city buys the rink and then teams rent it out.� Another option he laid out was a possibility of laying concrete in the rink so it can be used as a dual-purpose arena. “The main issue is we’ve got a dirt floor with (the cooling) pipes underneath,� he said. “So we can’t drive anything heavy on the surface, but if we had concrete we could rent it out for bigger events, like for 4-H.� He said the estimate for laying the concrete would be around $180,000. “I could hold one or two gun shows a year in there,� Quimby

said. “The issue is we cannot just have a couple guys lay concrete, it’s a special hockey rink formula.� McKenna said the association is open to any and all ideas Village President Larry Ebersold told McKenna that she and her organization were welcome to come to the next Grantsburg Revitalization Operation (GRO).

Then the bidding process will begin in February or March of 2019. Penzkover added their will be a public meeting held sometime before bidding begins. It will most likely be held in January, it will be open to the public and is a requirement of the CDBG.

$100 per-child tax rebate returned more than $94 million MADISON—Between May 15 and July 2, 2018, almost 558,000 eligible families filed for the $100 Per-Child Tax Rebate. “It’s great to see almost $95 million returned to hardworking families throughout Wisconsin because of our $100 Per-Child Tax Rebate,� said Governor Walker. “Surplus dollars belong to the taxpayers, so it was only fitting to return those dollars through a child tax rebate and our Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday. We look forward to continue working to save taxpayer dollars and build on the more than $8 billion in cumulative tax relief enacted since taking office.� The $100 rebate was for sales and use tax paid on purchases made for raising a dependent child in 2017. Those eligible could claim $100 for each qualified child. A total of $94,233,300 was returned to taxpayers in claims for 942,333 children. “Overall, we felt the claims process

went very well. The online application system was easy to use, and it only took a few minutes to apply,� notes Department of Revenue Secretary Richard Chandler. “Similar to what we see in tax season, there was a surge of claims in the first couple of weeks and then another surge in the last few days. Wisconsin families appreciated seeing some of their tax dollars returned to them in time for back-toschool shopping. We also held our first ever Wisconsin sales tax holiday in early August to provide additional tax relief.� Both the Wisconsin Child Sales Tax Rebate and the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday were adopted due to a state budget surplus of almost $400 million at the end of the previous state fiscal year, a surplus that resulted from a strong economy and sound fiscal management. That allowed the state to continue its efforts to return money to Wisconsin taxpayers.

Democrats gather at Crooked Lake JONATHAN RICHIE EDITOR@BURNETTCOUNTYSENTINEL.COM

SIREN–– Tony Evers made his second stop in Siren last week at the Burnett County Democrats 17th Annual Brat and Bean Feed at Crooked Lake Park. His first stop was back in January when he spoke at the Siren Senior Center along with five other candidates for Governor. “Hello Burnett County,” Evers began. “Thank you for inviting me back.” He described himself to the crowd as a “proud Plymouth progressive,” and said he has been a proud Wisconsinite his entire life. The reason he is running is because he is driven by Wisconsin values. His job as state superintendent of public instruction has given him an “understanding of the difficulties people face across the state and that has changed our lives.” Evers was making his way through a Western Wisconsin tour with candidate for Lt. Governor, Mandela Barnes. Earlier in the day, he made stops in Eau Claire and Hudson. Then after his brief speech at Crooked Lake Park, he headed north for a speech in Superior. “We know who Scott Walker is,” Barnes stated. He then explained that simply putting down Walker’s policies and him as a person will not win the election. He is going up against incumbent Gov. Scott Walker, who has held the office since 2010, in the November midterm elections. Other Democrats at Crooked Lake Park were State Senator for District 25 - Janet Bewley, State Senator for District 10 – Patty Schachtner and State Assembly member for District 73 - Nick Milroy. Also in attendance were State Assembly candidate for District 28 Kim Butler and Burnett County Clerk

of Court candidate Jackie Baasch. Evers laid into Walker’s “divide and conquer strategy” and added that the Governor may not have confidence in himself. “There is more to unite us than ever could divide,” Evers said. He also explained Walker’s failed run for President.

“He ran for President for a short period of time. Spent $90 million in six weeks, I don’t know anybody in the state of Wisconsin that could spend money that fast. But he did and got .5 percent of the vote in the Iowa caucus,” Evers said. He went on to explain that the most important resources besides children are the natural resources found all over the state. “We’re going to bring natural resources back to local control and not the state government,” Evers said. After he made that remark there was a loud “Yeah!” from a gentlemen in the crowd. Dave Moe, President of the Burnett County Democrats told the crowd before Evers arrived that they need to “cover the county with yard signs” and “volunteers to keep the blue wave through Wisconsin moving.”

New school year off to a smooth start at Grantsbug LINDA LUHMAN SENTINEL STAFF

A welcome reception for new staff kicked off Monday’s Grantsburg School Board meeting. The Board and the new staff got acquainted, and it was determined that those who were Grantsburg alumni far outweighed those who weren’t, but all agreed it is a great place to be. There was also discussion of the PLC program and more plans for applying for security grant money. The School District showed their appreciation to the dedicated staff by presenting years of service certificates and pins for employees as they reached five-year increments. Personnel who served 25 years or more also received a chrysan-

themum. “We appreciate their service to the children of our community, and for the energy and effort they put into their work to make student lives successful,” said Superintendent Joni Burgin. High School Principal Josh Watt reported that Freshman First Day is still an essential and relevant start to many students’ journey into high school. The freshmen appreciate having a day to learn about their laptops, schedules, classrooms, lockers and other changes. He also reports that many upperclassmen volunteer to help with this as a way to repay the kindness they received when they were freshmen. Funded by a federal grant for rural and low-income

areas, the school district uses a process called Professional Learning Communities at Work to review their curriculum, develop learning goals, and align all grades along the same learning path. The underlying theme of the program is to have the entire staff focus on whether the district as a whole has made progress on goals that are most important—in this case, to identified essential standards for all grade levels. From a staff perspective, the program allows effective teachers to share their tips with other teachers, making the entire system stronger. By sharing best practices, more teachers can affect more students. This marks the third year that the school has been able to qualify for this grant.

Similar to the plans proposed for the high school at the last school board meeting, both the elementary and middle school had proposals approved to award bids for fortifying their main entries by installing locking mechanisms to the interior sets of doors in the main entrances. At Nelson School, this will also create a waiting area for pick up and drop off of Little Pirates, which will decrease the congestion in the front area. The Middle School hope to be able to create an entry to the office from the vestibule to funnel visitors to that area. They also plan to place security locks on the kitchen door so that food service workers can use a fob for easy entry. With the remainder of their grant funds, GMS is also

looking to fill in some blind spots by adding eight security cameras to cover gaps in vision. It will tie into their current software, and is still in progress. IN OTHER ITEMS: • Items of interest to address to a long-range planning committee will be gathered and researched and discussed at the Oct. 3 meeting in preparation for the Annual Meeting on Monday, Oct. 22. • The Middle School is sporting new artwork thanks to Art Teacher Janessa Wachsmuth, who painted an inspirational setting near the office door. Other uplifting quotes were placed in bathrooms by Divine Vinyl of Siren.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Gov. Walker: No need to spend more on widening highways MILWAUKEE—Gov. Scott Walker says the state should focus on fixing and maintaining its current transportation infrastructure instead of spending more on widening highways. The governor made the comments Tuesday in response to a question about transportation spending during an event sponsored by the Rotary Club of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Press Club. Walker says the transportation system is changing with more young people relying on ride-sharing and more electric and hybrid vehicles on the roads. Walker’s Democratic opponent in his re-election bid, Tony Evers, has suggested increasing the 32.9-cent-per-gallon gas tax to get more money for roads. But Walker says the state doesn’t need “a massive gas tax increase.’’ Walker says he will talk more about his ideas for transportation funding in the coming weeks.

Help protect Grandma and Grandpa: share your scam knowledge MADISON—Did you check in with Grandma and Grandpa this past weekend to wish them a happy Grandparents Day? If not, it’s not too late to talk with them about some of the latest scams and ways to stay protected from fraudsters. “While we are all targets for scammers, some con artists prey specifically on seniors,” said Michelle Reinen, Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection within the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). “Education is the best way to prevent fraud, so the more information we can share with our older friends and relatives the more likely they will be able to protect themselves when faced with a scam or identity theft risk.” An ideal way to start a conversion with older relatives is by sharing a copy of a new senior scams bookmark, available by contacting DATCP’s Consumer Protection Hotline (800-422-7128 or datcphotline@wi.gov). The bookmark provides a quick look at the main scam operations that target seniors and offers simple tips to spot fraud. For a more thorough resource, consider sharing a copy of DATCP’s Senior Guide. This free booklet helps

seniors navigate tricky consumer issues and provides a detailed look at a wide range of scams and identity theft risks. The Senior Guide is available on the DATCP website or can be ordered by contacting the Consumer Protection Hotline. Finally, sign your relatives up to receive DATCP’s Consumer Alerts by email or text message. This will give them immediate notice of warnings from the agency regarding the latest scams circulating in Wisconsin. Some of the common scams targeting seniors that are outlined in the guide include: • Grandparent scams (or “family emergency” scams) – a scammer falsely claims that a family member is in trouble and requests money. The scammers often claim to be a grandchild in need of help. • Tech support scams – a “computer technician” says you have a computer virus that they can repair in exchange for a payment and remote access to your computer. • Timeshare resale fraud – someone claims that they have a buyer for your timeshare. After signing a phony “sales contract,” the victim is continuously asked for payments for document fees

and other expenses. • IRS/U.S. Treasury scams – a fake “federal agent” claims you owe back taxes and demands immediate payment. • Medical alert/equipment fraud – scammers place robocalls to potential victims pitching “free” medical equipment and personal emergency alert systems. The items are often of questionable quality and are tied to recurring fees. Many scams and identity theft traps are similar in what they are seeking but rely on different narratives to draw in their victims. By recognizing the warning signs, seniors can protect themselves from a wide range of ripoffs. Review these simple tips with your older relatives: • Never wire money or give the account number and PIN code from a prepaid gift or money card to someone you don’t know. These payment methods are like handing over cash – the chance for recovery is slim to none. • Don’t trust your caller ID. Scammers “spoof” the information to appear as a local number. • Never engage with an unsolicited sales robocall. Taking any action may cause you to get additional calls. Hang

up. • Never provide personal information like your Social Security number or bank/credit card account numbers on an unsolicited call. • Always check with a friend or family member before you act on a high-pressure sales pitch. “Since 2001, elder abuse has increased 160%, and Wisconsin’s elderly population will increase 72% in the next two decades; we cannot wait to do better for our elderly loved ones,” said Attorney General Brad Schimel, who in 2017 established the Task Force on Elder Abuse. “Often, elder abuse victims can feel embarrassed that they were scammed. By letting our elders know that these scams are common, we can lift the stigma about asking for help and resources. This Grandparents Day, talk to your family about protecting themselves from scammers.” For more information about fraudulent activities targeting older citizens, visit the Consumer Protection Bureau at http://datcp.wi.gov or contact the Consumer Protection Hotline.

Join the Marathon Man for an evening on the road

Ask me about 7.5 CARRIE MYERS, RESOURCE SPECIALIST ADRC OF NORTHWEST WISCONSIN

What do you love most about getting older? We recently posed this question at a weekend community event. By the end of the weekend there were a number of responses—all of which made growing older look pretty good! But we don’t usually see growing older as a positive thing. Let me tell you about 7.5. According to research completed at the Yale School of Public Health, people with positive perceptions of aging live 7.5 years longer than those who have negative perceptions. They are more likely to recover from a severe disability, have better memory and cognitive function, and have a lower risk of cardiovascular events. In fact, perceptions of aging affect longevity more than blood pressure, lower body mass index, history of smoking, and tendency to exercise. Why is this? People who think that health problems are a normal part of aging: • Engage in fewer preventive behaviors like exercising or getting the flu shot • Feel less in control of their life and have a lower will to live • Are less likely to see a physician regularly and to seek preventative care Negative stereotypes are everywhere. How often do you see ads for a new anti-aging cream? Did you buy the “funnyâ€? birthday card kidding about the pearls of old age? Have you ever said, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,â€? and you weren’t referring to your family pet? These are just a few very common stereotypes that do more harm than we realize. What can you do? • Talk about 7.5. • Pay more attention to how you talk about older persons. Stop yourself when you say, “He’s 80 but he is still sharp as a tack,â€? suggesting he is the exception. • Be proud of your age and all the positive things that come with it! • Have friends in all generations. • Call out ageism when you see.

WEBSTER—They call him “marathon man.� Jim Anderson is a member of the unique 50 States Marathon Club. The Friends of the Larsen Family Public Library invites you to join Jim for an entertaining evening, 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20. There will be a slide presentation, and Jim’s books will be available for purchase and signing. He did not start out running marathons, unless you consider running the bases or the length of a football field a marathon. As a high school junior, he contracted spinal meningitis and was told that running would not be a part of his future. Not one to give up, he decided to try cross-country skiing, first skiing the American Birkebeiner in 1977. In 1984, Jim decided that if he could ski, he could run. Although he had completed it many times previously, the first marathon on his “official� 50 State list is Grandma’s (Duluth), June, 1993. However, it wasn’t until a few years later, after being told he was too old, that he decided to run a marathon in all 50 states. His quest ended with the Maui Marathon in Lahaina, HI, on Sept.21, 2014. Jim chronicles the marathons in his book, Discovering America One Marathon at a Time. This book is more than the mechanics of running a marathon. It is also the back story of each place, the history and people, and it is this that captivates the reader. He brings a fresh and distinctive perspective to each setting. For Jim, 50 marathons in 50 states was not enough. He has now completed a marathon in all 10 Canadian Provinces and two out of three Canadian Territories. His new book, Pedal, Pole & Paint: Canada & Beyond, documents these events as well as his 40 years with the American Birkebeiner.

WEEKLY WAG News and Updates from the Humane Society of Burnett County

If you are looking for one or two fluff balls to spend many happy years with, you are still in luck! HSBC is still running its Pick of the Litter special. Adopt one kitty at the reduced adoption fee and get a second for the price of a donation. This p week, HSBC is featuring w a couple of examples of y young cats waiting for n new homes. At just four weeks o old, Gingersnap arrived w with her two brothers, S Squanchy and Niko. They w went to a foster home to llearn proper house mann ner, and now these little Gingersnap ones are now ready for a home of their own. All three are ginger or red with blue-grey eyes. Gingersnap and her siblings also have friendly, playful and curious personalities and pretty much get along with everyone: dogs, cats, and kids. And they love to curl up on your lap for a nap. They would be excited to meet you! Buster is a black and white tuxedo cat with amber eyes. This little guy was found wondering beside the highway. Some nice people picked him up, showered him with love and care and then brought him to HSBC. Buster is approximately three months old and is hanging out in the adoption room with some friends while he waits to be adopted. HSBC’s kittens come in a variety of colors and perBuster sonalities. If you are fond of calicoes, tortoiseshells, tabbies or greys—we have them. Want a playful pet? No problem. How about a cuddler? That one is easy to accommodate.

Start of another school year means drivers must watch for students and buses As students across Wisconsin head back to school, motorists are being reminded to keep a sharp eye out for students, school buses and crossing guards. The State Patrol’s September Law of the Month details state laws designed to protect students as they head to and from school activities. Children are easily distracted and do not always think about their own safety, requiring drivers to be extra alert and cautious, said Captain Nick Wanink of the Wisconsin State Patrol Northwest Region. Motorists should be watchful for school buses loading and unloading passengers, and for children who are walking or biking. School Bus Laws Wisconsin law (346.48) requires drivers to stop at least 20 feet from a stopped school bus that has its red warning lights flashing. The law applies when approaching a school bus from either direction. The only exception is if you are traveling on the other side of a divided roadway separated by a median or other physical barrier. When passed illegally, school bus

drivers are authorized to report violations to law enforcement. A citation for failure to stop for a school bus costs $326 and four demerit points. All Wisconsin school buses built on or after January 1, 2005, must now be fitted with amber lights. When flashing, the amber lights mean drivers should slow down because the red flashing lights will soon be activated and the bus is about to stop. Drivers can carefully pass a school bus with amber lights activated, but should do so cautiously. Pedestrian Laws State law requires drivers to yield to pedestrians: • Who have started crossing an intersection or crosswalk on a walk signal or on a green light if there is no walk signal; • Who are crossing the road within a marked or unmarked crosswalk at an intersection where there are no traffic lights or control signals; and • Whenever directed to stop by a school crossing guard (346.46 (2m). Like bus drivers, crossing guards

have the authority to report violations to law enforcement. Depending on the specific violation, drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians that are legally crossing a roadway can receive a citation ranging from $175 to $326. Bicycling Laws When passing a bicyclist traveling in the same direction, motor vehicle operators must leave at least three feet of clearance and maintain this safety zone until safely past the bicycle. Violating state law that requires drivers to overtake and pass bicyclists safely can result in a $200 citation. While motorists need to do their part, its also important for parents to talk with their children about safe travel habits such as always using crosswalks and obeying bus drivers and crossing guards, Captain Wanink said. Other State Patrol Laws of the Month can be found on the WisDOT website, wisconsindot.gov. Traveler information is available on the Internet at www.511wi.gov or by calling 511.

Tigers clip Falcons’ wings, coach praises offensive line BY GLEN SKIFSTAD SENTINEL SPORTS

WEBSTER—The Flambeau Falcons were grounded last Friday as the Webster Tiger football controlled all aspects of the game and shut out the Falcons by a 40-0 margin. “After losing the first game of the season we worked to get some things cleaned up,” said Coach Andy Smith. “As coaches, we’re never really satisfied, but the kids are putting their work in and getting better each game.” “I thought our offensive line played great tonight,” he stated. Lineman Jacob Berg added, “We just work hard, we keep on doing our best. We’re always together no matter what.” After forcing Flambeau to punt on their first possession, the Tigers promptly drove down field. A nine play, 65-yard drive culminated with a fiveyard Carter Doriott run for a touchdown. The two point conversion failed, yet the Tigers were up 6-0. Again, the Falcons had to punt and the Tigers took over on their own 26. A 42-yard jaunt by Carter Doriott got the ball to the Flambeau 27. Three plays later, quarterback Trevor Gustafson hooked up with Coleton Peterson for a nine-yard TD pass. Doriott ran for a successful two point conversion and the Tigers were now up 14-0. Flambeau took the kickoff and was at the Webster 28 when the first quarter

ended. On the seventh play into the second quarter, Flambeau fumbled and an opportunistic Coleton Peterson picked up the ball and rambled 70 yards for a touchdown. The conversion failed. Flambeau moved downfield after the kickoff, but stalled on the Webster 39. They could only muster a 20-yard punt, the Tigers taking over on their own 19. One miscue the Tigers had in this

Coaches pleased at Webster Invitational BY GLEN SKIFSTAD SENTINEL SPORTS

WEBSTER—“What a great meet,” exclaimed Grantsburg Cross Country coach Lisa McKinley. “Strong performances by all our athletes. It is so fun to watch them work hard and see the benefits of the training.” “What I can tell you from the results that every Webster CC athlete ran their season best time. Yes, the course was measured twice and cross-referenced with a wheel and GPS watch,” stated Webster coach Roy Ward. For the girls, Grantsburg came in first place with Unity second and Frederic-Luck third. Shell Lake, Prairie Farm, Birchwood and Valley Christian also had runners but not enough for a team. Gracie Gerber was second (22:38.5) with Alexis Slater sixth. Savanna Trittelwitz came in ninth with Mirlande Brande 13th, Isabelle Quimby 20th , Hope McKinley 23rd and and Susan Roberts 28th. Webster’s runners were Jenna Gomulak (12th, 26:14.75) and Jeni Petersen (18th). SEE CC ON PAGE 18

game came as the Falcons intercepted a Webster pass, but they could not break the Tiger defense as Webster held Flambeau, and the Falcons turned the ball over on downs. Webster failed to move the ball and on a first and long, the Falcons intercepted pass number two on the night. They began their next drive on their own 43, but were later forced to punt the ball back to Webster.

Sitting just inside the midfield stripe, Trevor Gustafson broke loose for a 45 TD run. The conversion failed, but the Tigers were up 26-0. If turnabout is fair play, the Tigers did it. They intercepted a Flambeau pass and returned it to the Falcon 11. Three plays later Doriott took it in from the five-yard line. The conversion failed. Webster was leading 32-0 which led into halftime. Nathan Stadler got the crowd going as the third quarter opened, as he took the Flambeau kickoff to the Flambeau seven-yard line. Doriott scored on a two-yard run. Stadler finished the scoring on a two-point conversion, making the score 40-0 with 11:11 remaining in the third quarter. With running time in session, the remainder of the game went quickly with no further scoring. Webster was able to give the reserves plenty of playing time and gain valuable experience. “We were able to get more boys in the game tonight so they were able to have some fun (on the field).” Coach Smith continued, “We have a big test this week against Grantsburg so we’ll have to use all we got against them.” The Tigers go to Grantsburg this Friday for a 7 p.m. conference game.

GRANTSBURG—In West Lakeland Conference volleyball action, the Grantsburg Pirates hosted the Siren Dragons on Thursday night with the hometown girls coming away with a 3-0 win by scores of 25-14, 25-10 and 25-13. “Siren is another good team that simply had an ‘off’ night against us,” Pirates head coach Deb Allaman-Johnson said. “Siren also has a couple of powerful hitters. Thankfully, we served very accurately and tough against them, which minimized the damage those hitters could do. We had 12 team aces and served around 96 percent accuracy. Many of our serves were returned as free balls, which really helped our offense keep SEE DRAGONS ON PAGE 19

“For the high school girls, Jeni Petersen ran almost three minutes faster with her best time of 28:07. Jenna was two spots away from medal with a nice race,” shared Coach Ward. Hunter Gustafson was the first Webster runner to cross the line for the boys at 18:12.18. Kerik Stubbe was ninth at 20:23.12. Edwin Janssen (23rd), Jamin Wilson (37th) and Sam Smith (38th) were the remaining Tiger runners of record. Enrico Podesda and Aun Dechsuwan finished up. For the Pirates, Will Gerber was fourth (18:16.38) and Nate McKinley sixth (19:18.75). Joey Duncan was eighth, Brody Bongaarts 10th and Connor DeTienne 12th to finish the scoring.

We are excited about the growth we see in each athlete as they reach for another PR. So happy for these athletes and what they are accomplishing.” concluded Coach McKinley. Said Coach Ward, “The HS boy who shaved the most time off was Jamin Wilson. He ran the course in 24:30, over a two-minute improvement. Billy, Nathanial and Rene ran nice race times. Sarah Formanek was also over two minutes faster with her best time of 20:29.” “Kerik was determined to earn a medal and he did it. Nice work Kerik proving that you can do anything you put your mind to! Both our foreign exchange students, Enrico and Aun, finished their first 5K race. Nice work, I knew you could do it! Sam Smith was able to race...we are almost full strength on the HS boys team. After running on Tuesday in Rice Lake, both Grantsburg and Webster go to Osceola on Saturday for a 10 a.m. meet.

Pirates continue winning ways BY STACY COY SENTINEL SPORTS

GRANTSBURG—The Grantsburg Pirates improved on their winning streak, recording their fourth victory of the season after defeating the visiting Turtle Lake Lakers 55-28 on Friday night. After allowing the Lakers to march down the field for a score in their opening drive, the Pirates settled in and got back on track. “We have to figure out a way to play a better first drive on defense but after that, our defense settled in and played pretty well,” Pirates head coach Adam Hale said. Grantsburg answered that score with a touchdown of their own on their first offensive possession when Leo Chenal busted loose for a 38-yard touchdown run to get his Pirates on the board. The point after by Jared VanWatermuelen was good to go up 7-6. On the ensuing kick-off, Bryce Roufs stripped the ball forcing the Lakers to fumble. Gabe Chenal recovered it to put the Pirates back on offense deep in Lakers’ territory. They capitalized on the turnover with Leo Chenal scoring on a five-yard TD run. VanWatermuelen’s PAT was good to bring the score to 14-6. Leo Chenal got his third touchdown of the game with 1:28 left in the first quarter as he waltzed in to the endzone untouched from eight yards out. The PAT was good to go up 21-6. The Pirates racked up 28 second quarter points while running only seven offensive plays the entire quarter. The first score came just seconds into the quarter when quarterback Luke Anderson found a wide open Gabe Chenal in the middle of the field for a 33-yard touchdown. The PAT was good to bring the scored to 28-6. The defense shut down the Lakers, forcing them to punt. On Grantsburg’s first play, Anderson’s passed was picked off by the Lakers. The Pirates returned the favor just two plays later, when Leo Chenal picked a Laker pass out of the air and took it 93 yards for the score. VanWatermuelen’s PAT was true, to go up 35-6. With 6:24 left in the half, Anderson throws a perfect pass to David

Just a minute later on the clock, the Pirates struck again when freshman Isaac Quimby takes a pitch from Anderson around the edge and scampers in for the 11yard score. The PAT was good to take a 49-6 lead. The Lakers scored before the half on a six-yard pass play from Adam Waite to Lucas Torgerson. The two-point conversion was good to make the score at the break 49-14. The Pirates tallied one more score when Anderson found Gabe Chenal again for a 16-yard touchdown pass. The PAT was blocked, making it 55-14. The Lakers’ Torgerson took the ensuing kick-off 97 yards for the score. The two-point conversion failed, 55-20. Turtle Lake would score once more late in the game, along with a two-point conversion to make the final scored 55-28. The Pirates’ record improves to 4-0 on the season as they now head in to facing their North Lakeland conference opponents. They will host the Webster Tigers this Friday who are 2-1 on the season. “Bryce Roufs had another solid night and made a huge strip on the kickoff after our first score to really swing momentum in our favor,” Coach Hale said of this game. “Leo Chenal’s pick-six was the nail in the coffin as Turtle Lake had just gained a little mo-

mentum after their interception.” “Getting Tyrell Brande back along with Reed Arnold and Ben Johnson’s improved play should continue to give our defense a boost.” Leo Chenal led the offense with 112 rushing yards on nine carries and four touchdowns. David Nelson had four carries for 13 yards. Quimby had three carries for seven yards and one touchdown. Levi Miller had two carries for 14 yards, and Justin Patterson had one carry for nine yards. Anderson was seven of nine for 137 passing yards and three touchdowns. Sterling McKinley was one for three for a total of nine yards. Roufs was the leading receiver with three catches and 37 yards. Gabe Chenal had two catches for 49 yards and two touchdowns, and MacKean tallied 52 yards on two catches and one touchdown. “On the offensive line, Tanner Berger played very well and Isaac Lee keeps improving and playing more physical,” Hale said. “When Luke Anderson is throwing the ball well, like he has the past two weeks, it will keep defenses honest and from loading up the box every play.” On defense, Roufs had six total tackles—three solos and three assists. Leo Chenal and Levi Miller each had four solos and one assist, followed by Gabe Chenal with three solos and two assists. Leo Chenal and Jared VanWatermuelen each had one interception on the night.

Dragons dominate Mercer-Butternut BY GLEN SKIFSTAD SENTINEL SPORTS

MERCER—In a game played on Thursday night, the Siren Dragons defeated the team of Mercer-Butternut by a 64-12 score. Five Dragons rushers ran in double figures, with Cordell Fischer going 16 times for 100 yards and one score. Tanner Buck was close behind with 10 rushes for 95 yards and three touchdowns. Trevor Stanford (2 for 55 yards, 1 touchdown), Jordan Webster (3 for 33 yards, 1 score) and Triston Ortez (4 for 31, 3 TD’s) rounded out the rushing game. Webster was three for eight in passing good for 50 yards. The receivers were Ortez (1 for 36), Fischer (1 for 10) and Buck (1 for 4). On the defensive side of the ball, Derek Highstrom had four tackles, two assists, with three sacks. Tris-

ton Ortez garnered four tackles with four assists and one sack. Buck and Webster each intercepted a pass for the Dragons. “It was a good game for the Dragons,” commented Coach Ryan Karsten. “They (Mercer-Butternut) were 3-0 coming into the game and have some good players, but they are a newer football program and are not to the level of the upper 8-man teams in the area or state. We averaged almost nine yards a carry. It was a great team effort and now we are into the meat of our schedule. Luck is coming to Siren Friday night, and they are who you judge your program against. Last yea,r we lost 22-0 at home, and look to improve on that outcome. They are well coached and their players are very good. It will be a great challenge for us Friday night at home.”

Pirates overcome errors to defeat Cards BY STACY COY SENTINEL SPORTS

LUCK—The Grantsburg Pirates and the Luck Cardinals have battled it out on the volleyball court for a few years now, and last Tuesday was no different as fans were treated to an exciting night of volleyball. When the dust settled, the Pirates came away with a 3-1 win by scores of 23-25, 26-24, 25-17 and 25-14 to remain undefeated on the season. The Pirates were able to overcome a first set riddled with serving errors and an unusually large amount of net violations. When you face a talented team such as Luck, it is costly to give away points they quickly learned. “We started off pretty slowly with a lot of unforced errors,” Pirates coach Deb AllamanJohnson said. “We had five missed serves in the first set alone.” They held a six-point lead at 18-12 before the combination of unforced errors and the power of the Cardinals’ Katie Mattson’s front row attack got

Luck back in the game. Suddenly it was knotted up at 20-20 with the Pirates trying to hold on. They tied again at 21-21 and 23-23 before a long volley back and forth between the teams

with some amazing hits, digs and saves ended, again, with a net violation by the Pirates to put the Cardinals up 23-24. They went on to win 23-25. “We don’t see many athletes the caliber of Katie Mattson

around here. Her vertical jump is probably over 31 inches. She is tall and powerful,” Coach Allaman-Johnson said. “With our size, we can’t go in expecting to stop her very often. We have to minimize the damage by digging or blocking her off-speed attacks, while quietly marveling at her skill on the unstoppable kills, and capitalizing on her errors or her time in the back row.” The second set was a back and forth battle as well with Grantsburg going on scoring runs when Mattson was in the back row, and Luck clawing their way back when she was in their front row attack. The game was knotted up at 24-24 when Grantsburg’s Olivia Ohnstad put down a huge hit from the middle to go up 25-24. The Pirates won the set 26-24 when Luck hit it out of bounds to end the game and tie the match at 1-1. In the last two sets, Grantsburg was able to find their groove and took the 25-17 and 25-14 wins. “I’m sure fans enjoyed some thrilling volleyball, and there were some long rallies,” the

The Tigers dropped both games to Cumberland 0-2 (12-25, 15-25). “This was our first time playing in a triangular with Boyceville and Cumberland.

the Dragons off kilter.” Julia Cederberg led the Dragon attack with five kills followed by Karlee Sybers with three and Jade Horstman with two. Hannah Lemieux and Rylee O’Brien had one kill each to round out the list. O’Brien was the assist leader with 10, with Cassie Maslow adding one. Defensively, Cederberg, Lemieux and Maslow each had one block. Sybers also tallied two ace serves on the night, while Horstman had one. For the Pirates, it was Randi Sie-

Brooke Quimby tallied five kills with Olivia Brock adding three, Hanne Johnson two and Rachel Tooze one. Charli Siebenthal was the assist leader with 13 followed by McKenzie Rombach with seven and Ellie Duncan with three. On defense, libero Jenna McNally tallied 22 digs to lead the Pirates. Randi Siebenthal had nine and Raisa Jensen seven. Harmon had five digs with Ohnstad, Charli Siebenthal and Kaitlin Olson adding four digs each.

Quimby and Jadyn Watt recorded one block each. “Things were not all rosy for the Pirates as we committed an egregious 18 hitting errors, most of them unforced out-of-bounds. Uff da,” Allaman-Johnson said. “On the upside, the serve receive was fabulous with only one error for 96.7 percent playable passes by the Pirates. We take the good with the bad and are always grateful when we can walk away with a win and 14 healthy players.” The Pirates will host St. Croix Falls on Thursday, while the Dragons will travel to Webster.

Ohnstad was next on the list with 11 kills followed by Linda Harmon and Rachel Tooze with seven each. Brooke Quimby added five, Olivia Brock four and Jenna McNally one to round out the list. Charli Siebenthal was the assist leader with 25 followed closely by McKenzie Rombach with 20. “We are fortunate to have multiple attackers, so there is always a viable scoring option. When one hitter is off, there are five others who can cover for her,” Allaman-Johnson said. “Our setters are smart and steady. Our passers protect our floor relentlessly.” For the Pirate defense, McNally had a busy night with 22 digs. Harmon had 18 digs and Randi Siebenthal added 16. Rombach had 11 and Charli Siebenthal had nine. Harmon and Quimby each had one block on the night.

Pirates netters take first at home tournament GRANTSBURG—The Grantsburg volleyball team took all four matches last Saturday at its home tournament to grab the championship. They defeated New Richmond 2-0 (25-17, 25-17), St. Croix Central 3-0 (25-16, 24-26, 15-8), Mercer 2-0 (25-17, 25-16) and Frederic 3-0 (25-5, 25-8, 25-7). The Frederic game doubled as a conference game, thus three complete games played. “The varsity morning went smoothly,” complimented Coach Deb Allaman-Johnson. “Both courts miraculously stayed on schedule, which really helped. We were without a senior starter on the right side due to a wedding, and a senior defensive specialist due to the ACT. It felt strange to have a small bench with our assistant coaches busy with their teams, two varsity players competing in the other pool, and two absent. But they bonded to battle! “New Richmond passed really well and had a very powerful outside hitter. Sadly, they were without their freshmen phenom setter who tore her ACL during her Kokoro club season. They host a tournament at the end of September that we always enjoy in their beautiful facility. “Mercer was a very scrappy and competitive team that made us work hard to score. They, too, had a fantastic and powerful outside hitter. “Frederic has a new coach this year, and they are a very positive, hard-working team. I hope they can get some stability to keep building their program. There are many talented, eager athletes! “Both pools lined up perfectly in win/loss records with the 0-3 teams facing off for 7th/8th, 1-2 teams playing for 5th/6th, 2-1 teams competing for 3rd/4th, and the undefeated teams in the championship, leaving us to battle St. Croix Central, who defeated us in three tough sets in last year’s title match. “This year, the Pirates prevailed thanks to a balanced attack, solid team effort, resilience in the midst of adversity, and confident composure.”

Tigers drop volleyball matchup to SCF BY GLEN SKIFSTAD SENTINEL SPORTS

WEBSTER—“The strong hitting of (St. Croix Falls') Sydney Hoverman challenged our defense and that, combined with some communication difficulties, lead to some runs by SCF,” said Tiger coach Stefanie Janssen following the 3-1 loss on Thursday night. “We started strong, but just didn't keep the momentum.” Starting strong is just what the Tigers did. They were in the game all the way and managed to gain an 18-15 lead at one point, forcing the Saints to call time and regroup. St. Croix knotted the game at 18 and then the teams tied at 19. Webster outscored the Saints 6-3 to take the game at 25-22. In game two, the closest the Tigers got to the Saints was at 2-3 and then the Saints took off. Serves into the net or short returns marked some of the miscues the Tigers committed and they lost game two 25-12. After a slow start, trailing 12-3, Webster came back in game three narrowing the gap to 14-19, but the power of Hoverman was showing and the Tigers suffered a 25-18 loss in game three.

CHETEK—The Siren Dragon volleyball team participated in the Chetek/Weyerhauser Bulldog volleyball tournament on Saturday. The Dragons came away with the championship. Siren defeated Cornell 25-18, 25-16, and 15-8. The team had 26 kills with Jade Horstman leading the way with nine and Julia Cederberg with eight. Rylee O'Brien had 20 assists to go along with two aces. Cederberg and Karlee Sybers each had three aces. A forfeit was awarded to the Dragons when New Auburn could field just five players due to an injury. Against host Chetek/Weyerhauser, Siren won 25-23, 25-17 and 15-13. Horstman had seven kills, Sybers six and Cederberg five to head the Dragon attack. O'Brien again had 20 assists. Horstman had four aces. “We played really well for this tournament,” praised Coach Kristin Kosloski. “We played as a team and it was really fun to see.” After hosting Luck on Tuesday, the Dragons go to Webster on Thursday.

Q.

What ONE item in my home can I replace to improve my quality of life?

A. Without a doubt, replacing your old mattress

is the best investment you could possibly make. A Jake Jensen mattress designed to properly support your body allows you to achieve deep sleep faster. You’ll feel more rested when you wake, be more productive during the day, and you’ll get more enjoyment from your recreational activities. Today’s “smart” foam mattresses are designed to cradle your body, regulate your body’s temperature, and relieve sensitive pressure points so you’ll stay asleep longer without being awoken by the typical joint pain that causes you to toss and turn. Adding an Adjustable Lifestyle base lets you customize your sleeping position which takes pressure off your lower back, helps open your airways, and often reduces or eliminates snoring. An Adjustable Lifestyle base will also accommodate any future mattress purchases. You’ll be making a one-time purchase that will improve your sleep for many years. Stop in when you are ready to get a better nights sleep.

CONCRETE COUNSEL

DENTAL ADVICE

Q. How often should you seal your concrete? A. Your concrete should be sealed every year.

Q. Why does my mouth

Concrete maintenance is generally overlooked. Nick Hughes Sealing your exterior concrete and garage floors every year will add years of service to your investment. High gloss sealers are a great choice for decorative stamped or colored concrete. This sealer will give your concrete that shiny “wet” look and really make your concrete shine. Your exterior concrete should be sealed with a siloxane based sealer. This type of sealer works great for garage floors or anything that could come in contact with road chemicals or road salt. A siloxane based sealer will create a water proof barrier on your concrete and will help protect your concrete from chemicals that will attack your concrete causing premature wear and flaking or your concrete surface.

seem so dry now that I’m getting older? Dr. Heather Marks Dr. Rollyn Lee Your dry mouth may be caused by medications you are taking. Over 500 of the most commonly prescribed medications have the side effect of causing dry mouth. These include medications for allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, pain control, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diseases. The dryness increases with more medications you take. The most serious side effect of a dry mouth is a much greater risk of decay, especially along the gumline.

monitoring of various co-morbidities such as wounds, diabetes, cardiad issues, or post CVA (stroke) dementia, medication management to name a few. While the nursing home is your home for a while, we realize it is not home. However, there are certain laws and regulations from the Federal and State Governments (which we strongly support), that mandate “Home Like Environment” and “Person Centered Care”. Every effort will be made to respect your choices, ranging from get up and go to bed times, meal times, choices for food, activities, therapy times to suit you and extreme and privacy with cares. Even the small choices we make issues of such as making a favorite TV program available to you, virtually unlimited visiting hours, (if you choose), reasonable accommodations for those who smoke and much more. You choose your routines and how you spend your day, not us. This is a very wide ranging topic that I have only hit the highlights on. Often times residents tell me “there is so much to do, I can’t take it all in”.

A. All systems that our company install not only

have a constant power supply from your house power, Peter Ward they all include a “backup battery” as well. This battery ensures that even during a power outage your system will continue to operate as normal and will continue to communicate with central station should a breach of security occur. These backup batteries will keep your system running typically for 24-36 hours with no interruptions. Once power is restored to your home, the backup batteries will recharge themselves and be ready for any future power outages that might occur.  It is important to note that during a power outage you will receive a message from central station of “AC power failure” which is to let you know that power is out at your residence. These backup batteries typically have a life of 3-5 years depending on how often power failures occur.  It is important to have your system inspected and for those batteries to be tested.  In the next “ask the expert” I will address how often your security system should be inspected.

OBITUARIES

RECENT DEATHS

Ray and Dorothy Freeborn

Jon G. Hall

Ray Charles Freeborn, age 90, and Dorothy Marie Freeborn, age 88, were reunited on September 2, 2018. Ray preceded Dorothy in death on March 8, 2018. A memorial service was held on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at Swedberg-Taylor Funeral Home with Pastor Brian Pardun officiating. Ray was born in Shawano on August 4, 1927 to parents Birdie (LaForge) and James Freeborn. Dorothy was born in Neenah on March 19, 1930 to Florence (Broeffle) and Clifford McKee, and raised by her parents Guy and Florence Pardun. On December 27, 1950, the couple was united in marriage at Grace United Methodist Church in Webster. Ray and Dorothy both obtained their teaching degrees from Superior State College and taught in the Superior area. In October of 1951, Ray enlisted in the United States Navy and later served in the United States Air Force, reaching the rank of Lt. Colonel. Ray was a true patriot and very proud of his service to his country. At age 85, he took the Freedom Honor Flight to Washington D.C., which gave him the opportunity to visit the memorials that stand in Veterans’ honor.

Jon G. Hall, 79, of Grantsburg passed away on Friday, August 31, 2018 surrounded by his family after a long battle with chronic heart failure. A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, September 14, 2018 with visitation one hour prior to services at Faith Lutheran Church in Grantsburg. There will be a luncheon following the service. Jon was born on June 29, 1939 in Sioux Rapids, Iowa to Gaylord and Clarine (Haase) Hall. Jon was the fifth of 11 children. He grew up in Iowa and Wisconsin. Jon e enlisted in the Air Force in 11957 and was stationed in G Great Falls, Montana and N Newfoundland, Canada. He m married the love of his life, C Collette Braun in May of 11961 and they were married ffor 57 years. Together they h had four children, Guy, W Wendy, Faith, and Eric. The e early years of Jon’s marrriage were spent raising c children, working in and around Hastings, MN and tending to an 80 acre hobby farm with sheep, cattle, pigs, dogs and cats. In 1977, Jon and his family moved to Grantsburg, where he and his wife ran the Broaster House Restaurant, and later, the Hallway Cafe. He built and sold two houses and in his later years worked as a custodian at Faith Lutheran Church and as a clerk at Darrell’s Hardware until his health no longer allowed him to work. Jon loved building things and working with his hands; he especially enjoyed making benches and tables out of wood. He was a handyman at heart and could fix almost anything. He also loved engaging in lively conversation; he was a great storyteller and was well known for his quick wit and humor. Jon would take Collette on many spur of the moment day trips. They would pick a town on a map and away they would go! He also loved spending time with his grandchildren. In recent years, he spent many hours watching Grantsburg Volleyball. He enjoyed attending games and delighted in congratulating the players after each match. He is survived by his wife, Collette; children: Guy Hall (Tina Rife), Wendy Hall, and Faith McNally (Steve); grandchildren: Randi, Shane, Drew, and Jenna; great-grandchildren: Evan, Abigail, and Gage; and siblings: Don (Karen), Diane, Chris (Bill), Vern (Rita), Edna (Myron), and Janet.

Over the years, the family moved around to various areas while Ray was in the service. During which time, Dorothy was a homemaker to their two children, Lori and Mark. In 1970, Ray retired, and the family moved to the Webb Lake area. They further retired to Panama City, Fla. until their final move in 2009 to River Falls to be closer to their son, Mark, and his family.

NOTICE This notice is to explain the current ATV/UTV rules on the Burnett County Forest. As of September 16, the Burnett County State-Funded Summer Use ATV trails are closed. However, from September 16 through November 30 the Burnett County Forest woods trails and County Forest roads are open for ATV/UTV use. What this means is that you can ride your registered ATV/UTV on any woods trail, snowmobile trail and ATV trail located on County Forest Lands as long as it is not bermed, gated, or signed as closed; and is at least eight feet wide. (A good rule of thumb is that if you can drive your truck down the trail, then you can take your ATV/ UTV down it.) Reminder: No off-road motorcycles are allowed on our trails or on Burnett County Forest Lands at any time. No off-trail use is allowed and operation on private lands is illegal unless you have permission from the private landowner. Also note that ATV/UTV use is NOT allowed on the Gandy Dancer Trail at this time of year, except north of Hwy 77 into Minnesota. Many townships allow the use of the town roads. Please contact individual townships for their rules and regulations if you have any questions. Contact information can be found on our website at www.burnettcounty.com/townships. It is very important to note that all of these trails are currently multi-use trails. This means that any street legal, licensed vehicle can use these trails during this time, (trucks for example). It’s also important to note that these trails are no longer being maintained during this time of year. For these reasons we call the State-Funded Summer Use ATV Trail System closed, even though you can still ride the majority of these same trails because they are located on County Forest Lands and township roads that currently allow for the use of ATV/UTVs during this time of year. Remember, it is your responsibility to know where you are and whose property you are on. If you are unsure of where Burnett County Forest Land is located, please refer to a Burnett County Plat Book, as this is your best resource. If you have any questions, please contact the Burnett County Forest & Parks Department at (715) 349-2157, or visit our website at www.burnettcounty.com/trails.

Tom Cook Siren United Methodist Church

Back during the second World War, my wife was about four years old. She and her parents, Paul and Bessie Hudson, were living in Portsmouth, Virginia. Paul worked in the U.S. Navy Shipyard. He was very able and made important contributions to the war effort. Whether it was the work load or a genetic cholesterol problem he had a heart attack and died. Fortunately, they had many good friends in their neighborhood and among them, Hannah. Hannah was Jewish but that never seemed to bother either of them. They just cared for each other. As one of her good friends, Hannah brought Bessie a hot dish so the other friends who would be visiting would be well

cared for. Bessie appreciated this helpful gesture and was quick to clean the dish and return it to Hannah. Hannah took one look at the clean dish and was forced by her faith to ask how it had been cleaned. When Bessie told her what she had used to do the job it set off the alarm bells is Hannah who knew that this was not acceptable according to Jewish law. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should take this and bury it in the back yard for a few months to purify it but instead I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just put it up on a very high shelf and forget about it for a while.â&#x20AC;? They laughed together and no more was said about the incident. They remained

friends for many years although Bessie had to move back to Ohio. The rules were important to Hannah but not as important as friendship. Some people were with Jesus one day and they noticed that his disciples were eating with unwashed hands. This was not according to the rules. (Mark 7) He said to them that the things that make a difference isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what is on the outside that we eat but what is in the heart and comes out. We need to let Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit do some surgery on us to cleanse us from our pride and our hates and our prejudice so we can love like Jesus does.

Warning signs of suicide In June of 2018, the deaths by suicide of two high-profile celebrities garnered substantial attention. Within days of each other, fashion designer Kate Spade and television host and author Anthony Bourdain took their own lives. The deaths of Spade and Bourdain prompted many to inquire about suicide, its causes and if there are any signs that might help them identify if a loved one is having suicidal thoughts. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, no single thing causes suicide. The AFSP notes that suicide is most often a byproduct of the convergence of stressors and health issues that, when coupled, create a sense of hopelessness and despair. Depression and anxiety are two conditions most commonly associated with suicide. But the AFSP notes that most people who have been diagnosed with these conditions and actively manage them go on to engage in life. Undiagnosed depression and anxiety, as well as undiagnosed or unaddressed substance abuse, increase a person’s risk for suicide. That is why it is so important for men, women and young people to learn to recognize warning signs for suicide and put themselves in position to promptly address their own issues or those of a loved one. SPEECH The AFSP notes that people who take their own lives may speak about doing so prior to committing suicide. People should seek help if they or a loved one talks about feeling hopeless, having no reason to live or being a burden to others. People who speak of feeling trapped or feeling unbearable pain also may be

BEHAVIOR Behavior, especially behavior that can be linked to a painful event, loss or change, is another potential indicator that a person is having suicidal thoughts. Such behaviors include: • Increased use of alcohol or drugs • Looking for a way to end their lives, such as searching online for methods • Withdrawing from activities • Isolating from family and friends • Sleeping too much or too little • Visiting or calling people to say goodbye • Giving away prized possessions • Aggression • Fatigue MOOD Mood also is a potential indicator that a person might be having suicidal thoughts. In addition to depression and anxiety, people who are considering taking their own lives may exhibit a loss of interest in things they once enjoyed. Irritability, humiliation, agitation/anger, and relief/sudden improvement are other moods the AFSP notes may be warning signs for suicide. The deaths of two highly regarded celebrities brought suicide to the forefront in 2018. Taking the time to understand suicide and its warning signs can help people prevent tragedies. More information is available at www.afsp.org. People who are in crisis or suspect a loved one may be in crisis are urged to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.
