District Attorney answers questions about suspected drug houses JONATHAN RICHIE EDITOR@BURNETTCOUNTYSENTINEL.COM

they will be playing some patriotic songs as well. “We know that people want to hear the hits and the bulk of the show will be our hit songs,” Sterban admits. “We’re coming up there and we plan on having a great time.” The Oak Ridge Boys have been around since 1945 as the Oak Ridge Quartet, but their current lineup has been recording and touring together since 1972. They have 17 number one hits and have recorded 31 studio albums with close to

BURNETT COUNTY –– County Supervisor Gene McClain asked a basic question of District Attorney Bill Norine at the Public Safety committee meeting last Thursday about suspected drug houses in the county. “People may be selling drugs across the street from their house,” McClain said that’s what constituents are telling him. “They continue with asking, ‘why does this go on?’ and ‘how can we stop this?’” McClain said he was asked District Attorney about these suspected houses Bill Norine selling drugs at the pancake breakfast at the Grantsburg Fire Hall earlier this month. “They ask, ‘there’s a house across the street with cars going in and out all the time’,” McClain said of constituents approaching him about these residences. “What can be done about this Bill? Is there a ways to fix the problem with the court system?” Norine understood the issue and commented that there is one of these “suspected drug houses” in his neighborhood. Even though they might be suspected the first step is still a search warrant to prosecute people selling drugs out of their home in Burnett County. “Right now these are all only suspicions,” Norine said. “At some point they may get a warrant and go in to the house.” McClain said there has to be a way to stop this in our community. “Once law enforcement gets the search warrant, they go in with the video,” Norine responded. “That video is of the entire house and once we get that video, we can prosecute them as a drug trafficking house. That’s something we have just recently started doing.” This was followed by a droll conversation of using the K-9 unit to find probable cause in suspected drug houses. Norine explained that the K-9 unit is used more in automobile searches and that the law for using the K-9 unit in houses can get complicated.

“First of all, we’re really looking forward to coming your way. All of the Oak Ridge Boys are excited about the show,” said Richard Sterban, who sings bass vocals for the Oak Ridge Boys. That is how the conversation began with Sterban, who insisted their concert at the Hertel Express Outdoor Amphitheater on Friday will be fun for the whole family. They will play their hit songs along with some new material and because they are a patriotic band,

“Probable cause can get dicey in the home setting,” Norine said.

50 albums in total. Sterban spent most of the conversation promoting the show, but was also in a story-telling mood. He explained that the group almost didn’t make it. Before they got a record deal, they were playing gigs with Johnny Cash. He explained how Cash gave them words of encouragement when they needed it most during a residency in Las Vegas. “He could tell our heads were hanging so he invited us up to his room for a bit of a pep talk before one of the shows,” Sterban said. “He had us sit in a circle. He said, ‘Fellas, you’ve got something very special. I know it and you know it. Never give up because if you do, no one else will ever know it.’” They left that room with their heads held high and soon after signed a record deal with ABC Records, which was later sold and became MCA Records. In 1978, the Oak Ridge Boys won Vocal Group of the Year at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards ceremony. Cash was handling hosting duties for the evening and when Oak Ridge Boys were announced as winners, they stood up and ran to the stage. “We didn’t go to the podium on the left to accept the award. We went to the other podium on the right where Johnny was standing,” Sterban said. “We all gave him a hug and he said, ‘See fellas, I told you so.’” Sterban firmly believes there would be no Oak Ridge Boys without Johnny Cash. That says a lot because before joining the Oak Ridge Boys, Sterban toured briefly with the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – Elvis Presley. “Those two men were giants in the industry, probably larger than giants” Sterban stated. “It’s impossible to explain it. Everything stopped when they would enter a room.” Sterban joined J.D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet and moved from New Jersey to Nashville, Tenn. Six months after the move Elvis said he wanted to bring on the Stamps as his vocal touring group.

On November 5, 1971, Richard Sterban, bass vocalist for J.C. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, played his first show with Elvis just hours after meeting him in Minneapolis, Minn. The concert was in the old Metropolitan Sports Center in Bloomington, Minn. “That was the biggest tour in show business,” Sterban said. “It was an incredible year and a half with Elvis. Playing with him in Vegas was one of the biggest stages in the music business. I’m so glad I had that chance.” It was a brief 18-month stint with Elvis before Sterban was approached by the Oak Ridge Boys in 1972 to join their group and leave the lavished lifestyle of touring with The King. “I was a big fan of the Oak Ridge Boys at the time and they asked me to sing bass for them,” Sterban said. “A lot of people questioned me for wanting to leave Elvis. But I saw a lot of potential in this group.” Sterban said history proved him right after 47 years with the group. Although he was approached by Elvis in 1975 about re-joining his group. “He pulled me aside and asked ‘Richard, what can I do to get you to join me again,’” Sterban said. “It was one of the greatest compliments of my life.” ELVIRA “We know that’s our biggest hit and let the people of Wisconsin know we will definitely be playing Elvira,” Sterban said. In 1981, the band was sitting around listening to demo’s with their producer Ron Chancey finalizing what would be on their next album when “Elvira” came on. It was written by Dallas Frazier, originally recorded in 1966. “In his version it wasn’t a bass singer doing the oom poppa mau – mau, it was just him,” Sterban said. “So I sang that part and even in the studio recording it we knew it was going to be a hit.” A few days later, they were starting a short tour through the West Coast and in Spokane, Wash. they played the song for the first time. “People went crazy,” Sterban said bluntly. “I don’t remember any of our

songs getting that kind of reception. We played it three or four times as an encore. Then after the show we called ABC Records and told them we need to release this immediately.” It is still there most recognized song in their endless catalog. Sterban said that there is no doubt in his mind the greatest accomplishment the Oak Ridge Boys have had is being inducted into he Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. They were inducted in 2015 by fellow Hall of Famer Kenny Rogers. 17TH AVENUE REVIVAL AND THE FUTURE Earlier this year the Oak Ridge Boys released “17th Avenue Revival.” The album was produced by Dave Cobb, who has produced music with Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and the Zac Brown Band to name a few. The group worked with Cobb on their album “The Boys Are Back,” and enjoyed that opportunity so much they could not wait to record with him again. “He was very busy, so we did wait a little bit before we could work with him,” Sterban said. “But it was well worth it.” Sterban said Cobb wanted to go back to their roots and that was gospel. He had the group think about the early days of the greats, like Elvis, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis and even Little Richard, who all started out singing gospel. This gospel feel is reflected in the album. The title of the album means many things, but mainly it refers to the roots of country music and the ‘Nashville Sound.’ The Oak Ridge Boys are planning another project for next year with Cobb already signing on, but they will also continue touring They play about 150 shows a year and this year with added Christmas shows they will more than likely play more than that. “We’re all over 70, but have no plans of slowing down,” Sterban said. He recently turned 75. “We all know nothing lasts forever, but we still feel pretty good. As long as we feel good and the good Lord continues to bless us with good health we’ll keep playing. It’s what we love doing.”

BURNETT COUNTY WARRANTS AND CASELOAD Clerk of Court Trudy Schmidt made her monthly appearance at the meeting and explained the current active warrant list to the committee, there are over 900 of them. “As of May 31, there are 972 active warrants in Burnett County,” Schmidt stated and added that many of the people on the list have multiple warrants. Some of the committee was wondering if the sheriff’s department ever sets aside a whole day to go after people with warrants. “The sheriff’s department does not, because they don’t have the people,” Schmidt said. “But I believe Tribal PD will sometimes set aside a day to go after some of these people. Schmidt also said that as of the end of May, Burnett County had 942 active cases in the court system. The committee then asked how this compares to other counties and Schmidt brought up weighted caseload. “Weighted caseload is related to how much time the judge needs to be in court and how much time they spend in the county,” Schmidt said. “There’s is .6, meaning the judge spends 6/10ths of his time in Washburn County.” Schmidt said that Judge Mogen’s weighted caseload is somewhere between 1.4 and 1.7. Even though Burnett and Washburn County have similar populations, most of the committee members suspected this is because Burnett is a county on the state border. Schmidt added that Judge Harrington has eliminated the position in Washburn County of judicial assistant. IN OTHER ITEMS: Sheriff Ron Wilhelm explained to the committee his recruiting efforts. He described it as “difficult” to find qualified candidates. He said “people are not going into law enforcement right now.” Jail Administrator Mark Schmidt said he is adding two new full-time positions to his 2019 budget. He also said, effective July 1, his department will not be able to fulfill any paid time off requests. This means even if a jailer/dispatcher is sick they need to find someone to cover their shift. Schmidt added this will lead to him having to order workers in on their days off if shifts need to be filled.

Sitting above the foul pole

You may be surprised to learn this but there aren’t too many loving songs written about dads. My hometown classic rock station – 96.5 WKLH – is really good at making lists and letting them play all weekend. They will do classic rock A-Z or songs about hot summer days. So naturally around Mother’s Day they put together a list with all the classics about Mom’s, like “Mother and Child Reunion” by Paul Simon. But WKLH did not have the same list for Father’s Day because as it turns out a lot of musicians hate their fathers. I have some very specific and humorous memories of my father. My parents divorced when I was 12. After the divorce, when my brothers and I were with my Dad Sentinel we really didn’t go anywhere. But he did take us to a Brewers game Editor after learning that tickets were Jonathan Richie like five bucks and included a free soda, hot dog and popcorn. So we trudged our way up to the 400 level in right field and found the specific vendor that could provide us with our free food. Then it’s off to the seats. For the few who know Miller Park, our seats up in right field, above the Mountain Dew Deck in the top row, near the roof. We could easily see above the foul pole. My little brother Josh nearly leapt out of his skin when the PA turned on and the message began, “Welcome to Miller Park.” He had not realized that we were positioned directly in front of the speakers that were loud enough to be heard on the field. It was about 20 feet from his head. I eventually switched seats with him, because he’s the baby of the family. It was probably 15 years ago and the game was a lot of fun, I’m certain the Brewers lost. This was right before the semi-excellence of the Braun-Fielder teams. Also, my Dad loves the original movie “IT,” based on the Stephen King book of the same name, released in 1990 with Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. We used to watch it all the time as kids. Eventually it was not scary, but comical. But the first time I watched the movie, I was terrified. My Dad used to love scaring the crap out of everyone in the house. He loved the movie and showed it to us on purpose to set the stage for some scaring. He especially loved when the film got tense and right before you knew something was lurking around the corner. It would allow him to practice his specialty – creeping up from behind the couch, making a small yelp and grabbing your shoulders. I never quite understood why he got so much joy from that moment, but it was definitely the happiest I ever saw him as a kid. King is a great writer. But a college professor told me once that what it takes King to do in 4,000 pages, it only took Edgar Allen Poe 300 words. Regardless, I hope the fathers out there have a great day on Sunday.

Wit and wisdom of my father Sunday is Father’s Day, a time to acknowledge the pater familias (the male head of the household, as the Romans referred to him), pop, dad — he has many names, many jobs and is truly never appreciated until he is gone. Even though I have been a father for over half of my life, when I consider Father’s Day, my thoughts From the Publisher’s invariably go to my own father, Desk Arved Stangl, otherwise known as Tom Stangl “The Chief,” who d away iin 2001. passed The Chief was a hard-working man and got his moniker from his constant assertion that he was in charge. With six children, doing anything was a struggle. Children often have the annoying habit of questioning authority figures and my father, like every other father, had a saying to quash these potential uprisings. He’d say “we have too many chiefs and not enough Indians. I’M the chief, and YOU are the Indians. What I say goes.” The Chief had spoken. End of discussion. Time to buckle down and get the job done. The Chief had many catch phras-

es that he would apply to problems or questions. Many were veritable verbal Swiss army knives, being able to be utilized in many different situations, much like the common butter knife he often used that did extra service as a screwdriver, putty knife and pry bar. I’m sure your father had similar phrases. Here are a few of The Chief’s nuggets of wisdom: After a long day at the garage: “I like people less than I do squirrels...and I HATE the damn squirrels!” The Chief disliked working with the public and had fought an ongoing war against squirrels invading the attic of our home. He often counseled us to “avoid working with the public.” He worked in an era when customers were often allowed in the shop to observe and comment on their automotive repairs as they were being made. The Chief did not suffer fools well. On work and play: “If you’re not making money, you’re spending money.” Truer words have never been spoken. Answer for any request for material possessions he did not want to grant: “People in Hell want ice water, too.” “You need the right tools to do the job.” This sage advice was

often given while trying to pry swollen storm windows loose with a butter knife. In the summer, when gasoline was 25 cents a gallon, we would often pile into the Rambler station wagon and go for a drive, just to cool off and have something to do. Many times, when we would drive past the local Dairy Sweet, we would implore The Chief to stop for ice cream. His response: “There’s ice cream at home.” After I became an adult, he confessed that he didn’t have enough money to buy one cone, let alone four or five. But we did truly always have ice cream at home. When we weren’t paying attention to what he was trying to tell us, his favorite line, used by my sister during her years as a middle school teacher, was “no one ever learned anything while they were talking.” Don’t even get me started on holding the trouble light.

Guarding Your Right To Know Since 1875

The Burnett County Sentinel was the county’s first newspaper when Matthew Westcott began publishing on Feb. 19, 1875. The Sentinel continued weekly until its building and presses were destroyed by fire in 1909. The business was sold to its competitor. 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.

Friendship and food go a long way: Feed a friend


School funding commission urged to address declining enrollment, special ed reimbursement WISPOLITICS.COM

It could be the fall before a GOPformed legislative commission on school funding issues specific proposals After the ninth hearing in Madison on June 4, the Republican co-chairs of the Blue Ribbon Commission on School Funding said they planned to sit down individually with each member over the course of the next few months to log recommendations and begin discussing possible legislation. At that June 4 meeting, educators, school board members and parents urged the commissioners to tweak the school funding formula to aid districts with declining enrollment, address special education reimbursement rates and more. Others also called on commission members to respond to concerns involving school choice, including increasing transparency surrounding private school vouchers. Among those pushing for the commission to address declining enrollment were Kettle Moraine School District Superintendent Pat DeKlotz and former WEAC Executive Director Morris Andrews, who said lessening enrollment is “causing havoc for the educational programming of Wisconsin’s small, rural school districts.” And DeKlotz suggested commissioners consider applying the same logic used for open enrollment — where a district that loses a student to another gets to keep around one-third of the funding attached to the pupil — to districts with declining enrollment. Currently, as school districts lose students, the per-pupil revenue they get from the state decreases by around $10,500 on average per student, according to the Department of Public Instruction. Enrollment is calculated on a three-year, rolling average. Meanwhile, Sally Flaschberger of the Wisconsin Survival Coalition and others asked that the state increase the special education reimbursement rate, as schools across the state dip into their regular education funding to cover those costs. DPI had previously requested an increase in the amount of money available to reimburse districts, with the

intent to raise reimbursement rates to 28 percent in 2017-18 and 30 percent in 2018-19. The current rate, 26 percent, stayed static after those requests weren’t included in the budget. Flaschberger asked the reimbursement rate be increased to 50 percent, adding the ceiling “has remained flat for about a decade” despite increasing costs incurred by districts. She also called for commissioners to even out the state’s spending on the special needs scholarship, which allows students with a disability to receive state money to attend private schools. The program, which provided scholarships of $12,000 in 2016-17, was revamped under the current budget, eliminating a requirement that a child had to be rejected in attempts to attend a different public school district before being eligible. On vouchers generally, Sandy Whistler, a retired teacher from Lake Mills Area School District, said commissioners should instate a moratorium on voucher expansion “until the cost and effectiveness of the voucher program can be carefully evaluated.” At the end of the hearing, GOP Cochairs Rep. Joel Kitchens and Sen. Luther Olsen said they hope to have the commission’s recommendations finished by early fall. After the two meet with each member individually, they said, they plan to have one more hearing with the whole group to discuss changes and recommendations to bring forward. The 16-member commission includes nine lawmakers and seven education experts, including superintendents from Green Bay and Grantsburg, two representatives from Milwaukee-area Catholic schools, a UW-Madison professor, a member of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards and a representative from Cooperative Educational Service Agency 6.

You can’t prepare for the day when your dad doesn’t remember your birthday or has a hard time remembering your name. No one can explain the helpless feeling you have every day when you leave the nursing home. You’re just sad. Life has been rough the last few weeks, and I am so grateful to have lovely friends who care. I can’t thank them enough.

Siren Police caseload goes up, hits new high JONATHAN RICHIE EDITOR@BURNETTCOUNTYSENTINEL.COM

SIREN–– Last year, there were two months where Siren Police Department took on 73 cases. Last month Siren PD opened 80 new cases, according to Chief of Police Chris Sybers. The department had 73 cases in May and October of 2017 and at the time, Sybers said those were the busiest months he had ever seen since working for the department. He said one of those cases involved a stolen vehicle which was recovered after two days. Siren Schools Superintendent Kevin Shetler made an appearance at the meeting to “spread good cheer.” Shetler said that Chief Sybers and Siren PD are working hard with the district to improve positive relationships. Sybers was approved as a school resource officer last year and was at the school for around nine hours a week, Siren PD officer Trevor Theix was also at the school. Sybers has eaten lunch with the students, he’s read to the younger students and has taught a few classes on local government to the high school students. “We’re trying to show the students the police in a good light,” Shetler said. “When I got there kids were turning away and now we’re giving high fives,” Sybers said. Shetler concluded by saying the relationship he is seeing with the students and police is positive and he appreciates what Sybers has done in this short time. Village Board Trustee David Doty said his son is at the school and he has noticed a difference. “He said things seem to be clearing up at the school,” Doty said. “This is leading to a better relationship with the the public.” Sybers took a moment to thank the


Police chief Sybers explains his monthly report to the Siren Village Board.

Siren FCCLA Purse Bingo and Yeti Raffles that lead to a $4,000 donation to Siren PD. That money was used to buy new tasers for the department. The donation covered the entire cost of the new tasers, which were needed for the department. “These (tasers) are supposed to last about five years. It’s recommended they’re replaced every five to seven years,” Sybers explained. “These ones we’ve got are 10 years old.” Part of Sybers monthly report is on the DMV services offered at the Police Department offices. Alden said, “why would people wait in that line on Tuesdays and Thursdays when some of that stuff can be taken care of any day of the week at this office?” Siren Police Administrative Assistant Vicky Drohman said they can handle a few DMV services without going to the DMV. “We can transfer titles and issue license plates for automobiles, light trucks (8,000 lbs. or less) and motorcycles,”

Drohman said. “People can also renew their registration on the majority of plates except motorhomes and trailers.” They can also order duplicate titles for most types of vehicles and trailers. The Siren PD offices are open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PUBLIC COMMENTS Members of the Big Doctors Lake Association attended the meeting to discuss phosphorous levels in the lake they represent. They came to the meeting after hearing a rumor that the Village was no longer testing for phosphorous. The Village of Siren, according to records, have spent $28,427.55 on chemicals for phosphorous testing from September 2016 through May of 2018. Big Doctors Lake Association President John Magnuson said that a decision was made to stop testing for phosphorous. “That is incorrect,” said Village President Dave Alden. Alden added that the Village is having some “difficulties on the financial end”

and would let the lake association know if anything changes or if they hear anything from the DNR about the phosphorous. Lynn Kern was also at the meeting to express concern about a house being built on 4th Avenue in the village. In a letter sent to the Village Board Kern and Kris Beebe wrote, “Our concerns are that because of the buildup of the foundation for the new home the water runoff will come on to both our properties causing it to seep into our basements causing foundation problems and water in our basements.” The letter goes on to ask that this issue be looked at now so they do not run into problems later on in the project. Alden understood Kern’s concerns and said he has met with the couple building the house and was hoping to meet with the builders in the near future to find out more about the potential water runoff. Kern added that she is not against the new home, but explained that the existing lot does get very wet “My basement has never been wet and this buildup has made me concerned,” Kern concluded. Alden said he would keep an eye on the situation and noted that it is the builders responsibility to make sure the water runoff does not spill onto other people’s property.

IN OTHER ITEMS: The board approved a slew of liquor, beer and operating licenses in Siren. They also went into closed session to discuss a potential land sale in the Siren Industrial Park. After closed session they agreed to discuss the sale more with the land owners in committee meetings later this month.

As temperatures outside rise, so does the humidity. Water that leaks or drips during humid weather does not evaporate quickly. Instead, it just puddles up or soaks in. This increases the risk of damage due to mold or rotting.



Spring is a good time to go around the house and inspect all of your plumbing for leaks. While a slow plumbing leak can cause major problems any time of year, it can be especially harmful in the warm months ahead.

FEES FOR FIRE INSPECTIONS Trustee Barton said that Grantsburg Fire Chief Cory Barnette checked with state officials on the subject of businesses refusing to correct problems. These problems consist of not fixing exit lights or other inspection infractions. “Cory can write a violation at the state level,” Barton said. “Then the state has to deal with it.”


38 sites are planned for the potential expansion. According to Bistram, all 38 sites will be full hook-ups and approximately 40 feet by 40 feet with the entrance on Olson Drive.

Downtown Grantsburg, WI • (715) 463-5367


EXPANDING CAMPGROUND Dale Bistram, of Grantsburg Revitalization Operation (GRO), came to the meeting with a proposal for expanding the Memory Lake Campground. The plan includes 38 sites with electricity and a bathhouse. Bistram enlisted the help of his brother-in-law Brentt Michalek, who has 20 years of experience in the field, to put together the proposal which said that millennials should be the target for this expanded campground. “The millennials spend more money on dining and recreation,” Bistram said. “They spend an average of $41.19 a day.” He extrapolated those numbers out and related them to the expanded campground. If three people stay at every site and spend $41.19 on local goods, that will add up to “$4,696 per day, $32,870 per week, or $460,175 in additional spending over a 14-week season.” The report continues to state, “Camping is trending positively throughout the country lead by millennials and it is clear by this data that visitors and tourist currently matter and will continue to be a positive factor for the future of Grantsburg.” Bistram said the approximate cost is somewhere between $133,00 and $168,000. Those numbers include gravel costs for new roads, electric for all 38 sites and bathhouse construction costs. “These sites would be more primitive, for the millennials,” Bistram said. “For tent and pull-up camping because they already have the RV camping on the other side.” The Village Trustees seemed intrigued by the possibility of a new campground. “Great idea guys,” Ebersold said. “I like it.” Trustee Caylin Muehlberg announced herself as the only millennial in the room and said she doesn’t use electricity when camping and would elect not to have electricity at each new site. The board then voted to create a committee to deal with the campground and recreation area.




GRANTSBURG –– After months of meetings and contract reviews the Grantsburg Village Board decided they will not allow Starwire onto the south water tower. Trustees also heard about a plan to expand Memory Lake Campground and picking up where the county left off – appealing to millennials. Starwire representatives Joe Cremin and Sarah McLain have been at the last three board meetings and have been communicating with Public Works Director Chris Bartlett about the placement of various antenna on the tower. Bartlett had discussed the placement of the antenna with engineers at SEH and they suggested making some drawings and doing a structural study on the tower. Bartlett recommended three options to the board; first was table the discussion, second would be to ask Starwire to pay for the drawings and structural study to be done or bump up their monthly rental fee from $100 a month to $500 a month and third was to turn down the proposal. Cremin said they could not afford the $3,000-$5,000 price tag for the engineer drawing. He added they could not justify paying $500 a month for the rental space because they cannot make enough money at the site. “There aren’t enough people in the coverage area to make enough to pay $500 a month,” McLain said. “We would need more customers in the area.” After hearing all three options the board voted on whether to move forward with Starwire and see if they can work something out. Trustee Diane Barton made the motion and it was not seconded. “The motion fails. We will not be moving forward with this at this time,” Village President Larry Ebersold said. After the failed motion Trustee Michael Longhenry reiterated his concerns which dealt with liability. If the antenna falls off the tower or damages the tower both Starwire and the Village may be liable for damages.

Troopers Dean Luhman (left) and J.J. Marcelin celebrated their retirements Thursday, June 7. Between the two of them, they have served the motoring public in Wisconsin a total of 46 years.

State Troopers retire in Polk and Burnett Counties LINDA LUHMAN SENTINEL STAFF

Burnett and Polk County law enforcement ranks dropped last week, when not one, but two area troopers retired. Trooper Dean Luhman, assigned to Burnett County, officially retired on June 1. Trooper J.J. Marcelin, assigned to Polk County, put in his last day of work on June 7. It is anticipated that their vacancies will be filled; until then, troopers from adjoining areas may be seen patrolling the area. TROOPER DEAN Known around the county mostly by his first name, Luhman has been patrolling the roads of Burnett County since 2006. His fully-marked cruiser sitting off from the highway is a familiar picture to most residents. After completing his training at the Wisconsin State Patrol Academy in 1991, he has done duty as a motor carrier inspector and as a trooper in four different Posts in the state: Waukesha, Eau Claire, Tomah and Spooner. In addition to his regular patrol duties, he served the State Patrol as a weapons armorer, firearms instructor, and a member of the cadet certification-test team. Before joining the State Patrol, Luhman was an over-the-road truck driver and also spent three years in the US Marine Corps. When asked what his big plans are, Luhman said, “I plan on doing whatever my wife tells me to do.” (cleaning the garage and getting a job. Feel free to ask him how it is coming along.-- l.l.) GUNNY If you mention Trooper J. J. Marcelin, people seem confused. But mention Gunny, at it’s a completely different story. Everyone knows Gunny. Marcelin is a common sight in Polk County, where he has worked both as a motor carrier inspector and trooper for most of his career. He has served in Waukesha, Eau Claire, and Spooner Posts. As an inspector in Polk County, Marcelin also ventured into Burnett County to do mobile enforcement with portable scales. Marcelin served on the Division’s Honor Guard, and was active with the armorer’s team. Marcelin served 22 years in the US Marine Corps before serving in the State Patrol. Marcelin is uncharacteristically spontaneous about life after work, “It’s a new chapter. After 42 years of public service, I’m thinking my future is wide open.” If you add it up, that’s 46 years of law enforcement service and 25 years of military service for a whopping 71 years of public service between these two guys. Here’s hoping they take a day out to go fishing together.

I was born on June 14, 1777. I am more than just cloth shaped into a design. I am the refuge of the world’s oppressed people. I am the silent sentinel of freedom. I am the emblem of the greatest sovereign nation on earth. I am the inspiration for which American patriots gave their lives and fortunes. I have led your sons and daughters into battle from Valley Forge to the bloody ridges of Vietnam to the sands of the Persian Gulf. I walk in silence with each of your honored dead, to their final resting place beneath the silent white crosses, row upon row. I have flown through peace and war, strife and prosperity, and amidst it all I have been respected. My red stripes... symbolize the blood spilled in defense of this glorious nation. My white stripes... signify the burning tears shed by Americans who lost their sons and daughters. My stars... clustered together, unify the 50 states as one, for God and country. “Old Glory” is my nickname and proudly I wave on high. Honor me, respect me, defend me with your lives and your fortunes. Never let my enemies tear me down from my lofty position, lest I never return. Keep alight the fires of patriotism, strive earnestly for the spirit of your republic, and I shall remain the bulwark of peace and freedom for all mankind.

Sesquicentennial gathering in Falun

FALUN –– A program is being planned for the sixth reunion of Falun on Saturday, June 23. Swedish immigrants settled in the area in 1868 because it looked ‘so much like the homeland they had left behind’ and named it Falun. Falun, Sweden, is the capitol of the Dalarna Province. The gathering will be held at the First Baptist Church, commencing at 2 p.m. With the tolling of the Falun school bell, donated to the church by Walter Johnson. Refreshments will be served after the program in the church basement. The Falun Committee has been working diligently, planning for this special event. Memories and a few surprises will accompany the celebration of the 150th year of Falun’s founding. Mark your calendar for June 23, a Saturday, and join us for nostalgia at First Baptist Church of Falun. Come early, stay late. You’ll be glad to reminisce

Northwest Passage’s residents photographing the St. Croix River at the Gordon Dam.


Northwest Passage Youth featured in new book on St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers With the arrival of North American Nature Photography Day on June 15, the kids at Northwest Passage have plenty to celebrate. For over eight years, nature photography has been a therapeutic cornerstone at the Webster-based mental health treatment center for teens. Their stunning photos have been seen nationwide in nearly 100 exhibitions, in print, and on television. Now, the young artists’ words are featured in a new book by renowned photographer Craig Blacklock. Titled “St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers: The Enduring Gift,” Blacklock’s book features photographs from throughout the 255 miles of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. The book’s release coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, the federal law protecting the rivers. Accompanying Blacklock’s photographs are an essay by former vice president Walter Mondale as well as quotes and poems from people whose lives were impacted by the Riverway. Among those quotes are reflections from Northwest Passage’s young artists. For example, Derek, 16, writes “To me, this picture shows that the river is full of energy, full of life in a constant flow. And I feel like my life is just like the

river. I have all this energy, and my life is now just beginning for the first time.” “The kids feel really honored for their words to be included in such a visible and prestigious showcase,” says Mark Elliott, executive director at Northwest Passage. “It’s fitting, too. Northwest Passage’s nature photography program got its start on the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers through a partnership with the National Park Service back in 2010. It’s evolved and expanded significantly since then, but the program’s roots will always be on the Riverway. Those rivers have brought so much healing to so many kids.” Craig Blacklock is one of the country’s most highly regarded nature photographers. Best known for capturing breathtaking scenes of Lake Superior, his award-winning work has been featured in publications and collections worldwide. Northwest Passage will host a book signing event with Mr. Blacklock and the young artists at the In a New Light Gallery in Webster on August 23. The event is free and open to the public. Northwest Passage’s In a New Light Gallery is one of only a few locations where Enduring Gift is available for sale. It can also be purchased at A portion of the book’s

Plan Perfect the

proceeds support the St. Croix River Association. And how will the emerging photographers at Northwest Passage celebrate Nature Photography Day? They’ll be spending time during the week at the river, of course, with cameras in hand. Specifically, they’ll be on a secluded stretch of the Namekagon near the Schaefer Cabin, one the Riverway’s few remaining turn-of-the-20th-century historic log cabins. Together with the National Park Service, Northwest Passage youth recently helped restore the cabin to its original form and it now serves as an artistic retreat for youth and artists-in-residence. As in Black-

lock’s new book, the voice of the river comes through loud and clear at this historic cabin. For the kids of Northwest Passage—and for so many others—this voice offers words of healing. Northwest Passage’s nature photography program has been funded in part by the National Park Service, National Park Foundation, St. Croix Valley Foundation, Wisconsin Sea Grant, Bremer Trust, and a number of other foundations and private charitable contributions. Northwest Passage plans to open its new PassageWay Center this winter, a community center aimed at fostering resilience through the arts.

COVER TO COVER - Larsen Family Public Library


Congrats, recipients! Siren Dental Clinic recently presented scholarships to the following Grantsburg High school seniors. Left to Right scholarship presenter Sharon D’Jock, Olivia Oachs, Alaina Oachs, and Brock Anderson.


Students visit Police Chief Siren Village Hall and Police Chief Chris Sybers got a surprise visit from a group of elementary students from Siren School who were on a short walking tour of the village. They arrived at Village Hall and took turns banging the village gavel and learned about police work. Sybers explained to the students what being a police officer is like. The children interviewed Sybers, asking mostly about his department’s workload. “On some of these cases ,I bet the clues are really small,” one of the students said as he placed his forefinger and thumb really close near his face. “They were so small, I bet that’s why it hasn’t been solved yet.” The kids were all given goody bags with some stickers and candy.

WEBSTER SENIORS by Bernie Bolter

Firework safety JOSIE PENBERTHY

Using fireworks on our nation’s birthday is as traditional as cookouts and parades. It is equally safe if some rules are followed: • Adults should always closely supervise teens when using fireworks and shouldn’t allow young children to handle them. • Save your alcohol for after the show. • Do not hold a firework in your hand. • Fireworks should only be used outdoors. • Always have water ready. • Have a designated shooter for the fireworks. • Wear eye protection (safety glasses) whenever using fireworks. • Only light one firework at a time. • Never relight a “dud” firework. Wait 20 minutes and then soak it in a bucket of water. • Used fireworks should be soaked with water and placed in a nonflammable trash can outside, several feet away from anything flammable. • Don’t use homemade fireworks, professional fireworks or illegal explosives. • Report illegal explosives, like M-80s and quarter sticks, to the local police or fire department. Let’s not forget the safety of our pets! It is encouraged to not bring your pets to a fireworks display, even a small one. If fireworks are being used near your home, put your pet in a safe, interior room to avoid exposure to the sound. Make sure your pet has an identification tag in case it runs off during a fireworks display. Never shoot fireworks of any kind (consumer fireworks, sparklers, fountains, etc.) near pets. This year, make your backyard celebration not only a fantastic show for the family, but a teaching lesson for everyone present. Let this Fourth of July celebration be the happiest and safest celebration ever.

Golly, June events are filling the calendar faster than I can keep up. Half the year is about over. I think I need a nap to help keep up!

Speaking of filling the calendar, Saturday is the Dairy Breakfast at the Grantsburg Fairgrounds. Oh yes, this is Father’s Day weekend! Hope you have something special planned. Or take a moment to reflect on a memory or two for those who have passed. Before I forget, June birthday

ASSOCIATED PRESS BLOOMER––A northwestern Wisconsin company has applied for a 60-year permit to expand its sand mine. Chippewa Sand Co. hopes to expand its roughly 175-acre site near Bloomer to more than 1,000 acres, The Chippewa Herald reported . “They project deposits and expansion to last approximately 60 years, but language in there (states) it's completely dependent on market conditions,” county project engineer Christien Huppert said. Officials from the town of Cooks Valley could also impose a stricter time limit on the permit. “The town will maybe only issue a permit that'll last 20 years,” said Darrel Fehr, Cooks Valley chairman. “The reclamation plan isn't for the whole mine. It's just for a certain portion of it for now, with the option they can expand into the rest. We can look at it again in 20 years.” Chippewa Sand officials will likely explain their plan at a preliminary meeting June 20, Fehr said. Chippewa County will hold a public hearing on the permit June 26. It will review the company's reclamation plan, which details its plan to replace topsoil, replant native plants and restore the area to its natural state. The hearing will only cover the reclamation plan, not “traffic, setbacks, blasting, hours of operation, noise or dust control or the question of whether to use the land for mining,” according to a county public notice. Officials will work on the permit this fall, Fehr said. Chippewa Sand will also need to obtain a general stormwater permit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The water that falls on Craig Blacklock’s house flows, eventually, to the St. Croix River. The Moose Lake, Minn., photographer is best known for his images of another water: Lake Superior. But a recent endeavor found him exploring and documenting, from source to mouth, the river for which his home watershed is named. The results have been published in “St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers: The Enduring Gift,� the release of which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the two rivers’ designation as protected wild and scenic waterways. The book’s 277 photographs are punctuated by thoughts from the rivers’ devotees, including an essay by former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale. AN UNEXPECTED SUBJECT The book owes its existence, in some part, to chance. After Blacklock was badly burned in 2014, his hands, which had needed skin grafts, became very sensitive to cold. He had been in the midst of compiling material for a book on Lake Superior, but the lake’s notoriously cold water made further progress unlikely. It was a friend in Osceola, Mark Kozlak, who suggested that the St. Croix might warrant Blacklock’s attention. “I was intrigued by the idea,� recalled Blacklock. He had canoed the river once before and had visited Interstate Park. But could he find enough of interest to fill a book? There was only one way to find out. “My family and I did an exploratory canoe trip,� he said. “The water was very low at the time, so we were hitting rocks and did a lot of climbing out and hauling the canoe.� In spite of the low water, he was amazed at the sights and experiences the river had to offer. “Whitewater, variation in tree types and geology,� he said. “There was certainly enough subject matter to make a river book.� To find out whether the project was tenable, he met with representatives of the St. Croix River Association. They told him that 2018 would be the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. “It didn’t take long to figure out that a book could be one of the ways to celebrate,� he recalled. Once it seemed the book was a go, Blacklock paddled every mile of the St.

Croix and Namekagon. “It gave me a good idea of what the river had to offer and where I wanted to go back and spend more time,� he said. Some places — whitewater rapids on the Namekagon and upper St. Croix, the mature evergreens of Cedar Bend, potholes and basalt cliffs at Interstate Park and the river’s sandstone cliffs — drew Blacklock back again and again. “I think I paddled the entirety of the St. Croix and Namekagon twice,� he said, “and went back to some places

And advances in digital photography helped capture high-speed phenomena, such as birds in motion, with crisp focus. “It’s almost a new medium,� he said. “It’s very fun for me. I’m 63 years old and I’m a kid in a candy store. It’s opened up things I could envision but

He added: “It’s a very different subject from Lake Superior, which is quite austere. There’s a lot of wildlife.â€? Blacklock used a variety of techniques to capture the river and its attendant wildlife in compelling ways. “With some of the flowers I used stacked focus,â€? he said. The digital processing technique combines multiple images with different focal distances. “It allows you to see things like you remember them, but until this technique came along we didn’t have the

Unless we can stabilize and reverse population growth, protections are moot. You have to look locally at what we can do but also become a global citizen.�

STATE: Baseball tournament preview

West Lakeland Conference All Conference Softball teams


Speaking of opponents, here is a synopsis of the Kenosha St. Joseph Lancers, Webster’s semi-final foe. They are a private Catholic school from the fourth largest metropolitan area in Wisconsin. “All of the other three teams that have advanced this far look like very good teams that are all playing very good ball right now,” Coach Washburn said. “There definitely won’t be any easy games.”

MINONG—The West Lakeland All Conference Softball teams have been chosen. On the First Team, both Cameron and Grantsburg had three representatives. The Pirates had Mackenna Johnson, Emma Quimby and Cassidy Chenal. Cameron’s players are Jamey Crotteau, Lexi Kringle and Ali Kringle and From Shell Lake, the players are Meridith Kevan and Grace Anderson. Annalise Parks and Kiana Fall were the representatives from St. Croix Falls and Turtle Lake/Clayton respectively. On the second team, Grantsburg placed fourBrooke Quimby, Rachel Glover, Rachel Tooze and Rylee Hoffman. Cameron, Shell Lake and Turtle Lake/Clayton each sent two. The Comets had Brianna Crotteau and Sydney Lucas; Shell Lake, Ashtyn Smith and Arianna Schreiber; Turtle Lake/Clayton, Sophia Ellis and Alison Leslie. The Honorable Mention players include Susan Roberts (Grantsburg); Madisen Freymiller and Emma Zmuda (Webster/Siren); Sophie Fredericks and Sydney Domagala (Frederic/Luck); Kennedy Patrick, Jaedyn Bussewitz and Kailey Ketz (Turtle Lake/ Clayton); Anna Mikula (Shell Lake); and Bridgett Bergman (St. Croix Falls).

It is from 5:30 p.m. until dusk and is for youth ages eight to 18. A responsible adult must accompany 8-12 year olds at all times. Guns and ammo are provided. Membership is not required. There is a charge per 50 shots. Contact the Rod and Gun Club at 715-463-2458 for more information.

The Lancers were the number four seed in their region, but that is misleading. They were ranked tenth in Division 3 at the end of the season and have been playing great baseball. They seem to match up well with Webster’s hitting as they are batting .341 (Webster is .342) and ten players are hitting above .300. Not that that means anything. Hitters don’t bat against the opposing hitters. They go against the pitchers. Here’s how that looks. Lancer pitching is good but is overshadowed by the Tigers incredible 1-2 punch of Washburn and Rosenbaum. One might predict their ace, Jacob Charon (6-0, 1.61 ERA) will get the start against Webster on Wednesday. If the Tigers can get to

Charon, the next best pitchers have much higher ERAs; Jack McGuire (2.98) and Jake Reigel (3.69). Prediction: Webster wins 7-2 and will play in Thursday’s final. Webster will play Kenosha St. Joseph on Wednesday afternoon. They will start approximately 35 minutes after the end of the fi rst Division 3 game which starts at 1:00 pm. You can watch the game through the WIAA (and a paywall). The championship game will be played on Thursday and the winner of this game will face the winner of the St. Mary Catholic Zephyrs (17-2) and Mineral Point Pointers (18-4). St. Mary’s has five pitchers with a sub-.200 ERA. They won state back in 2016 with an undefeated season. Last year they lost in the sectional semi-finals which was their fi rst loss of the season. They are 66-3 in the past three seasons. Mineral Point (18-4) has never been to the Spring State Baseball Tournament in their history (though they went once while in summer ball). They finished second in their conference and are unranked coming into the semifi nal against St. Mary Catholic. Mineral Point, on paper, would seem to be the biggest Division 3 underdog, but they have some lively bats, including freshman Liam Stumpf who hit over .500 and has some pop to his bat. The team has an average of .354 at the plate. If the team advances, it’ll be because of their performance at the plate. Championship game prediction: Webster 3 – St. Mary Catholic 1. The Championship game will start at 12:05 and can be viewed on Fox Sports Wisconsin. Good luck to the Tigers in their quest to bring home the gold trophy. MORE FROM COACH WASHBURN “I can’t say enough how proud I am of this group of fine young men. Last year hurt and every one of them set the goal to get back this year and try our best to have a better showing. They have kept their focus and worked their butts off to get back to Appleton for this opportunity to achieve their goal. There are no egos on this team and each and every one of them does his best to help the team. “Our fans have been outstanding this season also. We have had huge crowds at many games this year and they are loud and very supportive and that is a huge help. It didn’t matter if we traveled five hours south to Edgerton just to be able to play games, we always had a good group of fans there to support us and the team loves that. The crowd at Sectionals was very large and very loud and I expect a big group to make the long trip across the state to Appleton and we can’t say enough how much that means to us.”

Raise A Glass To Dairy Farmers! They consistently deliver us farm-fresh dairy products with high nutritional value. Not only do their efforts nurture our local economy, they also nurture our health. Think of the number of things we eat that are dairy products: milk, butter, cheese, ice cream and more. Certain dairy products contain nine essential nutrients that help better manage weight, as well as reduce risk for high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain cancers. Maybe that’s why nutritionists recommend that you eat three servings of dairy per day. Best of all, dairy products are as delicious as they are nutritious. During Dairy Month, support the dairy market and share delicious dairy products with your family. They’re all good, and good for you!

Avoid drinking alcohol when supervising children and when you are swimming to keep everyone safe. Know the basics of swimming, CPR, and the basics of life-saving so you can assist if an emergency arises.

and potential damage to my property.

As far as your home goes, most all insurance policies cover storm damage Gary Nelson but remember that a deductible goes along with that. You will pay the deductible and the company will then pay the balance of the damage. Some companies, however, may have a higher storm deductible so you will want to check your policy. As far as your vehicles go, comprehensive coverage (or what may be listed as “other than collision”) covers storm damage. If you have this coverage and a tree falls on your car or you get hail damage, you are covered but, again, minus the deductible. It’s a good time to look at your policies so you know how they work.

system still work?

All systems that our company install not only have a constant power supply from your house power,r 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.

Our Redeemer Lutheran Church commemorates 125 years of history WEBSTER—On April 8 and again on May 20, Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Webster celebrated their 125th anniversary with services focusing on the theme “To God Be All the Glory.” Current and former members, along with friends from the community and other churches, current and former Pastors, and Pastors from neighboring LCMS churches were in attendance for the celebration of thanks and praise for the blessings that the Church has received throughout the years. Following the services, dinner was served to all in attendance. During the services, the humble beginnings of the Church were pointed out. Initially, the Church was founded by Norwegian immigrants who gathered in various homes to worship. The John Chelmo Log Cabin was one of the homes where worship services



Officiants participating in 125th Anniversary Celebration included (L to R) Scott Petersen, Rev. William Plautz, Rev. Jody Walter, and Rev. Mark Schoen.

were held . In 1896, a modest church building was raised on the John Chelmo homestead.



In 1918, this Church was dismantled and moved to the corner of Birch and Musky Street



in Webster. In 1929, the Church name was changed from the Lutheran Church of Webster to

the English Lutheran Church, and a decision was made to withdraw from the Norwegian Synod and to affiliate with the Missouri Synod. During this time, visiting pastors served many communities including Frederic, Coomer, Webster, Danbury, Markville and others. This ministry was considered to be part of the Soo Line preaching station. In 1960, the Church name was changed to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, and in 1979, a new Church was built along highway 35 in Webster. Ten years later, a parsonage was built next to the Church. Further documentation of the Church history, growth and blessings throughout the years were available for viewing in the many historical artifacts on display throughout the Church, narthex and fellowship hall.

Can we be civil?

Pastor Paul Peterson Bethany Lutheran

Can we be civil? Can we disagree without being disagreeable? These days if someone disagrees, over religion, politics, or society, that person doesn’t remain as “someone who has a different idea� – but becomes “the enemy.� If they are the enemy, then individuals feel justified when making disparaging, dehumanizing remarks; all of this rationalizing their hatred of them. Christian friends, has the notion of “speaking the truth in love� disappeared? Have we, because of Facebook and Twitter,

forgotten St. Paul’s admonition to, “Let no evil talk come out of your mouths, but only what is useful for building (one another) up?� Within our present day social context, please remember that, that “person� whom you “detest� is a beloved child of God. They are created in the image of God, they are “knit together� by God in their mother’s womb and they are a person whom Jesus died to save and redeem –just like he did for you. Maybe, perhaps, if we can remember

this, then the love and grace of God may have a chance of working its ministry of reconciliation in and among us in this hyper-polarized world. We can be civil. We can disagree without being disagreeable. We can put to death the old Adam and Eve inside of us and aspire to let our better angels come forth and lead us into a place of grace where the love of God does win, in spite of our differences.
