Nuisance bear hunt zone yields 14 BY STEVE BRIGGS SENTINEL


The black bears were making themselves at home.

GRANTSBURG—A special hunting zone around Grantsburg for nuisance bears resulted in 14 bears harvested during the 2016 bear hunting season. Two of the 14 were taken with vertical bows, one with crossbow and the rest by rifle. All were harvested on private land by the landowner or by a landowner-authorized hunter. None were taken with dogs. The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) office in Eagle River provided the report. In August, APHIS said it set up the special hunting zone “in response to chronic and sustained bear conflicts inside the village.” With help from the DNR and Crex Wildlife Area staff, nuisance bear harvest tags were available to private landowners within a 1.5 mile

Another ATV route approved BY TODD BECKMANN SENTINEL

SIREN—The issue will go to the full Burnett County Board for approval later this week but the county’s Infrastructure Committee voted unanimously to open 1.2 miles of Co. Rd. C from Voyager Campground to Mail Road to ATV traffic. The route, initially requested by the Town of Jackson and signed off on by the Burnett County Sheriff’s Department and the Burnett County Highway Commissioner as safe, was sent back to the town so they could consider viable alternatives. “We are trying to keep people out of Voyager Village as the roads can be quite confusing,” Al Vucicevic, ownMike Hoefs er of Voyager Campground, said by way of defending the request. “County Road C is a straight shot from the campground to Mail Rd.” Mike Hoefs, highway commissioner, concurred with Vucicevic’s opinion. “It’s a straight stretch of road which doesn’t get a lot of traffic,” he opined. Because the Town of Jackson has opened all of its town roads to ATV traffic, the approval will allow campers access to ATV routes in the area. SEE INFRASTRUCTURE, PAGE 7

distance from the village limits for the 2016 bear hunting season, adjacent to and outside the Grantsburg village limits. Tags were free but required the landowner to report any bears harvested. All Wisconsin bear hunting regulations and season dates applied. “This was a pilot project to break the intensity of nuisance bear conflicts that have occurred within the Village,” said Crex Meadows Wildlife Area Supervisor Steve Hoffman. Adding the 14 bears taken during the hunt to the 10 bears trapped and removed from Grantsburg during the 2016 live trap effort means two dozen bears have been removed from Grantsburg village and nearby woods in 2016. The Grantsburg bear problem has been worsening for some time. In 2014, residents on Grantsburg’s

north side reported a jump in bear sightings and bear-related conflicts. The black bears created safety concerns for residents, especially those with young children. The bears established a pathway through woods and yards, tearing down bird feeders, dumping trash containers and coming up onto the decks at some homes. The bears had become so comfortable around the village that they were often seen in daylight, even walking down streets as cars approached. “For some of these bears, Grantsburg is their home,” Hoffman said. The village requested help through the Crex DNR staff, which turned to APHIS. A crew from Cumberland started live-trapping the bears in fall of 2015 with limited SEE BEARS, PAGE 6


DANBURY—Imagine, heading to your favorite spot to do a little fall fishing and you no sooner cast your line when you spy an alligator in the water. Well, not an alligator, per se, but a Caiman, a member of the alligator family. That’s just what happened one day last week. Visitors to Thayer’s Landing on the St. Croix River, just west of Danbury, discovered the reptile. No one is quite sure how the caiman came to be in the water near Thayer’s, but Steve Hoffman, wildlife biologist for the DNR at Crex Meadows, has a theory. “We’ve seen this in other places where pet owners will release an unwanted pet into the outdoors to let it die,” he explained. “That way, they don’t have to watch it die themselves.” With the caiman hailing from Central and South America, preferring 80-plus degree weather, it isn’t hard to imagine what happened. “It couldn’t tolerate the cold weather and died of exposure,” Hoffman continued. “It’s a prime example of irresponsible pet

ownership.” The reptile was dropped at the Webster DNR Ranger Station and they turned it over to the officials at Crex Meadows. “I would have liked to talk with the people who found it to get a little more history of how they discovered it — it could’ve helped piece together the puzzle,” Hoffman said. As it stands, Hoffman believes the caiman was someone’s pet. It got to be too much for that person to handle,. so they released it out by Thayer’s Landing. “We have no idea how long it had been on the loose,” he pointed out. “Judging by what little decay there was, it wasn’t out there very long.” One thing is for certain. “It didn’t swim up the St. Croix River,” he said with a laugh. That the caiman was someone’s pet was an extension of Hoffman’s theory especially given the fact Wisconsin is one of five states which allow residents to keep almost any animal as a pet. In fact, in 2011 a Hudson woman was ticketed for bringing a small pet caiman to the city’s beach on the St. Croix River. SUBMITTED

OCTOBER 19, 2016

Look what they’ve done

Well, they did it again. The county’s infrastructure committee opened another portion of a county road to ATV traffic — this time it was 1.2 miles of Co. Rd. C from the Voyager Campground north to Mail Road. Nothing against ATV enthusiasts, but where does it end? Why the fuss you ask? Good question because the approval last week was only 1.2 miles, but the approval before that was for 900-feet, the approval before that was for a little over two miles, and the list goes on. The reasoning for the approvSeems to als is that all ATV trails are not connected and by using pieces Me of the county highway system, connections can be made. Todd Beckmann those The county maintains their biggest concern is everyone’s safety. I think I can corral my concerns into two camps: motorist safety and ATVer safety. First, there is very little warning for motorists that they will be sharing the road with an ATV — and that’s just the local motorists. What about the poor cabin-owners who might not have any idea what they’ve gotten themselves into. Sure, proponents will argue the roads are signed for ATV traffic, but I can envision distracted motorists not paying any attention to those 10-inch green signs — even if they know why they are there. Second, ATV enthusiasts, some as young as 12, are now being allowed to drive their rig on a county highway — a roadway which carries vehicles at least twice their weight and traveling 200 percent faster than they are allowed. I may be a pessimist but I believe I’m a realist when it comes to thinking this is the recipe for disaster. Now, I realize towns are opening their roads to ATV traffic to encourage tourists to come to Burnett County, but I don’t see any rhyme or reason as to how it’s being done. If I, as a newsman who has an okay handle on the process, am in the dark on what’s open, what’s not, what’s the speed limit, and all the other concerns, what about the ATVers themselves? What about visiting ATVers? If I’m an ATVer out enjoying a Sunday spin on Lake 26 Road in the Town of Swiss, is it legal to continue on the same road into the Town of Webb Lake? There’s no way to print a map outlining the rules and regs — things would change before the ink was dry. Even if the county could come up with a “real-time” map they posted on their website, indicating where the trails are, what the speed limits are and which sections of county road can be used to connect those trails, it’s asking a lot of the run-of-the-mill ATV enthusiast to stay up-tospeed. First, you’d have to assume they have internet connectivity, but more important, you’d have to assume they are so anal as to keep double-checking the map to ensure their planned ride is legal. I may be off in left field on this but it seems to me that when it comes to allowing ATVs to share the road with motorists, the county board has strayed from its self-proclaimed motto of vision and stewardship.


Treasuring the gold Fall is in the top three of nearly everyone’s list of favorite seasons. It is number one on my list for the cooler days, beautiful colors, fall sports and fresh, locally-grown apples. I think fall would be tops on everyone’s list, but it sometimes gets a bad rap because of the next season, winter. But the nature of life is for everything to occur From the in cycles, so it is Publisher’s best to enjoy what we have before beDesk coming consumed Tom Stangl by dread of what is to come. In the past few weeks I have witnessed the maple trees in our yard and around the area turn from green to amber to gold before being shed by the trees. “Gold” is not an accurate term to describe the color, but it’s the best I can do. When the sun is shining and diffused through the leaves, the interior of our home gets a golden hue that is pleasing and comforting. Of course, the leaves must fall and then be dealt with. We have already begun the process of mulch-

ing leaves with the mower. Mulching is a great way to get rid of some of the leaves, but it is a seemingly never-ending task. In a few weeks, there won’t be any space left in the grass for bits of leaves to accumulate and we will be forced to begin raking. Back in the old days when I was a kid, raking leaves was only fun when you were able to pile them up and then jump in the pile. We weren’t much help to our parents and continually needed to be put back on task, but we eventually got the job done. Where I grew up, we got to burn the leaves at the curb. I really enjoyed being entrusted to help with this task. I don’t know if it was the smell of the smoke or the challenge of being a firefighter in my overactive imagination, but it sure was fun. My wife and I went to an area orchard and picked some apples on a Saturday afternoon. It was a great experience to literally hand select the fruit we wanted. We are so fortunate to have benefited from the hard work of the University of Minnesota to develop hardy apple varieties that thrive in our climate. The Agriculture Experiment Station, created in 1887, began the work to bring new varieties of ap-

ples to trees in our area. Nearly 30 varieties of apples have been released by the university, each with a different texture, flavor and use. Some have already ripened and are out of season, others are just coming into their own. The famed Honeycrisp apple developed at the University of Minnesota has a shelf life of up to seven months. I think a crisp fresh apple or a piece of hot homemade apple pie are two of the best things a person can experience. Sweet, simple and mostly good for you in moderation, apples and the numerous dishes that can be made with them are one of the reasons I love fall. We have been blessed with a beautiful fall. Hopefully, it lasts a bit longer — say till April? Hey, if you are going to wish, wish BIG, I always say. I hope you get to enjoy the delights of fall. As always, I welcome your comments.

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.

OCTOBER 19, 2016



Afraid of the dark Leaves blowing in a pre-winter wind, suppertime sunsets and trailers of pumpkins along roadsides all bring to mind the beloved childhood holiday, Halloween. Looking back, Halloween may have been even better than Christmas. While Christmas offered celebration and many toys and other fine gifts, indeed, the late-October festival held adventure. The holiday kicked off with the television airing of Charles Schultz’ “The Great Pumpkin” with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and all the gang a few days before. At that time, if you missed the show, you had to wait another year to see it again — even VCR tapes were not yet available. The show itself was an event. As an early grade-schooler, simply being out and about on Halloween Newbie in night crunching through and kicking piles of leaves at a time usually at the North- up home and on into the darkness was a treat. woods A myriad of flashing Jack-O-LanLori Callahan terns beckoned one down the street. Coming across ghosts, skeletons and all manner of monsters with the very tall goblins in flowing black and frightening faces especially kept the adrenaline flowing. Darkness can conjure up all kinds of things in ones imagination and an occasional scare confirmed it. Halloween, then, was the embodiment of spooky. It didn’t help matters that those old plastic and elastic-band masks hindered ones vision. A few kids carried pumpkin-shaped plastic pails or an occasion-designed bag, but most, like myself and my siblings, held paper sacks. It worked — no rocks. Once home again, we gathered on the living room floor, spread out our bounty, separating the most-coveted chocolate bars from the other candy, ate and traded, with an occasional squabble over ownership. As a preteen, my friends and I would run around town until 9 or 10 p.m. as we were allowed to on that annual night. Word would spread through the neighborhoods that some teenagers were stealing candy from smaller kids, but that, too, was part of the adventure. In the distance, we’d see likely suspects and hide in the shadows hushing one another until they were gone, retaining our treats. Putting on a mask can change one and, just for a while, we can try on some that we were too shy to reveal or even those we dared not show. Admittedly, I remember participating in the smashing of pumpkins one year and an occasion of my group soaping someone’s car windows. Relatively mild stuff, but nonetheless messy and unappreciated. That may have been the last time I ran for my life. As an adult living in northern Minnesota, the teenagers in the community practiced ‘Gate Night’ the eve before Halloween. Originally a night to open gates and let livestock escape, it had evolved to nearly any prank, sometimes going beyond that of childhood mischief. Though there certainly has been opposition to the nighttime festival for a variety of safety, religious and law enforcement reasons, trick-or-treating in my formative years was simply a fun and indulgent occasion. It was a time one could be a villain or someone magical, a beggar and a bestower of money to the poor through UNICEF collections all in one night. It was a time to take off a little of the mask we usually wore. When the night out finally ended, we’d get an out-ofthis-world sugar fix — a fitting reward for the night’s adventures. Happy Halloween to all of us still afraid of the dark.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Grantsburg fly-in was a big success

Mary Hoeft for U.S. Congress

To the Editor: Thanks to all who helped make this month’s Grantsburg Airport Fly-In so successful. Thanks to the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 237 in Blaine for sponsoring and providing free rides for more than 40 youth and making pedal planes available for those too young to fly. Thanks to Andy Miller of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, who gave seminars for pilots and communities Friday and Saturday. Thanks to the Grantsburg 8th grade class and helpers for the wonderful food, to Grantsburg Sanitary Service for Porta-Potties and to the Sentinel for its great photo spread. And a great big thanks to all who attended and made this such a tremendous event — we hope to do it again even bigger next year. Rod Kleiss Grantsburg

To the Editor: I’ll be voting for Mary Hoeft for U.S. Congress on November 8th because I know Mary and her values. Mary was born and raised in Wisconsin and has spent her career as a Communication and Foreign Language educator at UW-Barron County. She has met thousands of students over the past couple of decades and understands the challenges of families in northern Wisconsin. She is a grandmother who will improve conditions for families in Wisconsin. Mary is not representing any special interest group. Her opponent has received hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign financing from banking lobbies. Unlike her opponent, Mary is

It’s long past time to fix it I can’t remember who it was, or what meeting I was at, but I can still hear the frustration in the man’s voice as he spoke about the terrible state of the roads he drives on to get to and from work. Something about the way he said “It’s long past time to fix it,” stuck with me. Simple and to the point, it was a perfect example of the kind of common sense so often missing down in Madison. Like many others across northern Wisconsin, I spent last Thursday night meeting with business leaders, local officials and citizens to talk about the need to finally take action to start rebuilding our state’s infrastructure, especially local roads and bridges. It’s not like this is a problem we don’t know how to solve. The issue has been studied, reports have been issued and recommendations have been put forth. People gathered in 70 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties to send the same message to Madison – it’s time to fix our roads. Storms this past summer have only made the problems worse. You’ve passed the twisted hulks of culverts that have been removed and replaced, waited on flagmen and women protecting road crews, and navigated carefully between washed-out shoulders. People in southern Wisconsin have a hard time imagining the magnitude of the challenge our local repair

a bill that would allow us to make long-overdue investments in rebuilding our roads and bridges. My proposal would bring home $209 million dollars that are currently being taken from working taxpayers’ pockets and handed to a small group of extremely wealthy individuals. Eliminating a tax break that rewards people for not creating jobs would allow us to double local road aids for counties and increase aids to our municipalities by a third. I know my bill is a long shot. But I believe it is a good-faith effort to find a way to effectively use limited resources in a way that supports our economy. I look forward to the give-and-take on this and other proposals. Although I can’t remember who said, “It’s long past time to fix it,” I do know he’s not alone. Just this week my legislative office received a message from a coalition of business leaders that noted, very accurately, “The three pillars of Wisconsin’s economy are manufacturing, agriculture and tourism; and all three pillars depend on good, safe roads. Without a modern, efficient transportation development and funding plan, all current and future economic development initiatives are in jeopardy.” They’re absolutely right. Let’s get to work.

I want to join many people across our district in thanking the local Emergency Management, Public Works and highway crews for Janet the work they are still doing to get Bewley our roads up and running before Wisconsin winter returns all Senator too soon. But as your State Senator, I know we need to do much more than just thank these hard-working men and women. We need to back that up by bringing more of our tax dollars home for local roads. I was encouraged to see an increased focus on supporting local roads in the budget request the Governor and Department of Transportation announced last month. Unfortunately, it’s not enough. My Republican colleagues in the Assembly have stated that all options need to be on the table for Transportation funding. I couldn’t agree more. And, I know we can’t start a conversation empty-handed. That’s why I recently circulated

success. Bears seemed to avoid the traps, or the traps weren’t in the right locations. In spring of 2016, Grantsburg Village Board enlisted north side home owners to call in bear sightings to the village office. Those reports resulted in more success in live trapping the bears, including five bears trapped and removed from one family’s yard. Of the 10 bears trapped in the village, four were yearlings that had spent their entire life in the village, authorities said. They were euthanized, along with an ear-tagged sow that had been relocated 118 miles to Glidden but traveled back to Grantsburg. One boar and one cubless sow were relocated. Three trapped cubs were sent to Wild Instincts Rehab Center in Rhinelander, where they will grow to adulthood in the wild without human contact. The special nuisance bear hunting zone was set up as a two-year pilot project. It will be evaluated on first-year results and on the number of bear nuisance issues in 2017 before the second year of the special hunt zone is authorized.

CAIMAN: Exotic pet found in St. Croix River CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

“If you have enough money, you can buy anything to keep as a pet,” Hoffman remarked. “A lot of it isn’t right — and a lot of it should be illegal.” From a legal standpoint, Grantsburg, Webster and Siren all have exotic pet ordinances on the books which limit reptiles, like the caiman, to 30 inches or less. The length of time the reptile meets that criteria can be measured in weeks. “They may be small and cute as hatchlings, but this does not last very long,” reptile expert Dr. Adam Britton wrote on “In only a few months, they grow considerably in size and their temper gets worse with every passing day.”

GRANTSBURG—Yes, Crextechs is still in business — just in a new location. “I think it is important for people, not just from Grantsburg but from the whole area, to know there is still a local computer store where you can buy products and have them serviced without having to go to the Twin Cities,” Joey Michaels, the new proprietor of Crextechs, explained. The business reopened Oct. 3. “Business has been good — like it was when Dennis Allaman had the business,” Michaels remarked. “I think it has been a good transition.” Michaels has an Associates Degree in Networking Administration from Pine Tech in Pine City, Minn., and had this business transfer in mind for quite a while. “I worked with Dennis for 18 months, and we had talked about buying and moving the business,” Michaels said. In fact, when the house at 360 W. St. George St. came on the market, he was excited by what he saw.

Joey and Tiffany Michaels

“The walkout basement was the biggest selling point when we made an offer on the house,” he remarked. “It keeps the business separate from our family life.” The location is another plus. “I think it’s really neat how the business is still on the same street,” Tiffany Michaels interjected. Michaels will continue to offer computer repair as well as selling new and used computers and laptops, plus selling a management system. “It’s like a patch management system,” he pointed out. “If your computer runs Java or Adobe Reader, for example, and needs an upgrade, this system does it automatically so

you don’t have to.” In addition, Michaels will be able service computers remotely, provided the owner grants him access. While he will make the occasional ‘house-call’ to service a machine, he is attempting to make the in-home business more accessible thus easier for customers to bring their problems to him. “We have the business speed on our machines which will make diagnosis quicker,” Michaels pointed out. “In the end, it will make the fix quicker and the cost less expensive.” And because the business is in their home, they can be available outside regular business hours. “We are open weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but realize those times may not work the best for everyone,” Tiffany Michaels, a working mom, explained. “If people need service after 4 p.m., call first, and if we are available, customers are welcome to visit — we want it to be convenient for our customers.” Crextechs can be reached at 715463-2365. Crextechs also offers a VHS-toDVD copying service. For those who want to learn to sell goods on Ebay, Crextechs will continue that service as well.

Grantsburg restricts compost site access BY STEVE BRIGGS SENTINEL

GRANTSBURG—The Grantsburg Village Board voted Monday to add a locked gate and fence where Gary Street intersects with Benson Road. The move will limit access to the village compost site at the old dumpground. When the gate goes up this fall, village residents may use the site during Saturday compost hours and at other times by requesting the “unlock code” from the village office. But, only people who live in the village will be allowed in. The board plans to buy a push-button numeric lock for the gate rather than a keyed lock, so that the combination can be changed as needed and prevent people from copying the key. “These battery-powered, numeric locks are used everywhere now,” Village President Glenn Rolloff said. “Then we can change the code on a regular basis. It’s as fast as changing the lock on your garage door.” The dumping problem has grown worse for Grantsburg as nearby townships have closed their compost sites. Unauthorized non-residents dumping brush and stumps at the Grantsburg site has become costly, as the DNR now sets limits on how much waste material can accumulate before

the village is required to burn. More frequent burning means more expense, because the DNR fire regulations now require an attendant at the site from the fire’s start until it is extinguished, sometimes 10-12 straight hours. Trustee Diane Barton said she has heard of Twin Cities residents hauling their yard waste to Grantsburg when they come up to their cabin or for a visit, due to the expense of disposing brush in their own comGlenn Rolloff munity. Village president Rolloff said he was less concerned about yard waste and more concerned about non-Grantsburg business owners who bring large stumps to the site. They can take all day to burn. He added, “I know a couple of outside-of-village people who use our compost site very freely for their business. They make money cutting brush and then dump this very commercial brush in our compost site. And we pay to have it burned. That has to stop. They can bring it to their own yard and burn it there.” The board suspects some regular

‘If they don’t live in the village, no access.’

users may reside in neighboring townships, so it authorized Public Works Director Chris Bartlett to contact the nearby town boards to ask whether they would participate in the compost site costs in exchange for access. Bartlett said the Town of Grantsburg board declined, stating its residents could burn their own brush. He received no reply from the Town of West Marshland. Rolloff added, “When we go to a countywide Towns Association meeting, sometimes we’re asked if we can take brush from these towns. It costs money to run a compost site and to have a burning facility permit like we have. It’s expensive, and that’s why their sites have been closed. “I’m going to suggest that gate be locked,” he continued. “Grantsburg residents can call the village office or come to the office and get the code, then go dump their brush. “But, they have to live in the village. If you don’t live in the village, no access. It’s kind of a hard line, but at the same time we can’t afford to be paying for everyone else’s brush removal.” New board member Caylin Muehlberg suggested the board consider developing a fee schedule for non-residents who want to use the site, and the board agreed to discuss that at a later date.

Timber sales top $1 million for the year SIREN—Eleven timber contractors placed bids on 1,033 acres of Burnett County Forest land divided into 12 tracts on Thursday — the result? $601,000 in estimated timber sales for the second and final bid opening of the year. “There were a lot of competitive bids so I was happy with the bid opening,” Jake Nichols, forest administrator, pointed out to members of the county’s natural resource committee. “The prices are down a bit but that’s to be expected with the markets being down right now. “Combined with the first bid opening of $699,000 in April, the county is looking at estimated timber sales of $1.3 million for the year,” Nichols continued. The forestry department has established a goal of between $900,000 and $1.5 million in timber sales each year so 2016 has met the goal. “The real value comes when those sales are cut,” Nichols explained.

In other business: • Mike Kornmann, community development agent, reminded committee members that $17,000 would be available for the next round of tourism grants. He said the deadline was Feb. 1, 2017. • He admitted he didn’t know how it was done or how it was done without anyone observing them doing it, Nich-

Conversely, deer damage to corn has occurred but the deer are moving into the bean crop. Yield-wise, Ferris said it is looking to be a good crop if it can be harvested off wet fields. He said his office has heard reports of 60 to 90 bushels per acre for the soybean harvest while some corn yield reports are pushing 200 bushels per acre. by Todd Beckmann, Sentinel

In other business: • Motorists who frequently travel Hwy. 70 east of the roundabout will be glad to hear of a WisDOT plan to be completed yet this year. “They are planning a patch, basically an overlay, on that portion of the highway that has taken a big hit the last few weeks with all the road work in the area,” Hoefs explained. The patch will run about 900 feet, from about the Sip and Suds Tavern east toward the Clam Lake Narrows Bridge. “Otherwise, that piece of road isn’t on the calendar to be fixed until 2020,” Hoefs noted. • The traveling public will also be glad to know the county’s two major construction projects for 2016, County Road B, known as Stub B, and County Road C are about 95 percent done. “We have some shouldering work to finish, the roads need to be signed and lines will be painted the week of Oct. 24,” the commissioner said. “Those projects turned out well.” • Hoefs also reported the bridge replacement on Melo Drive in the Town of Trade Lake should be complete by deer season. The news was greeted by encouraged skepticism from committee members. “The contractor is set up to get the work done,” Hoefs noted. • The committee approved the airport’s six-year plan. “There are 11 years of plans in the documents you received,” Nate Ehalt, county administrator, told committee members. “It’s basically a wish list of everything we’d like to see out there.” He cautioned the committee the plan that goes to the Bureau of Aeronautics (BOA) does not commit the county to fund any of the projects. “The six-year plan we sent the BOA is just part of the funding process,” he added. • “Things are really moving,” Hoefs said of the new highway shop. He said the problem causing the delay in obtaining the pre-cast panels has been fixed and the panels are arriving daily. “The panels arrive by truck, are unloaded and put in place,” he continued. “In another week, the perimeter will be up and the inside work will be ready to commence.”

OCTOBER 19, 2016

Election 2016 guide — BURNETT COUNTY—As Wisconsin voters prepare to head to the polls Nov. 8, incumbent Republican legislators face competition from Democrats and, in two cases, third party candidates. In today’s edition, the Burnett County Sentinel is focusing on the state legislative races in an effort to create a better-informed electorate. In the 10th Senate District, Republican incumbent Sheila Harsdorf faces Democratic challenger Diane Odeen. In Assembly District 28, Adam Jarchow is up against Democrat Jeff Peterson and Vincent Zilka of the Veterans Party. In Assembly District 75, Romaine Quinn is being challenged by Democrat Joe Huftel. The Sentinel posed two questions to all candidates. The candidate responses which follow, limited to a total of 500 words, were edited for length as necessary.

Senate District 10

CANDIDATE RESPONSES — SHEILA HARSDORF (REPUBLICAN, INCUMBENT) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 10th Senate District? My background and experience as a dairy farmer give me a good understanding of the importance of small businesses and the challenges and risks they take as job creators. I have a record of results and reform that we need to continue in the Wisconsin State Senate and believe my values and work ethic are similar to those shared by working families throughout our rural communities. Sheila Harsdorf I am a graduate of River Falls High School and the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor’s degree in animal science. In 2000 I was elected to serve the 10th Senate District, which includes parts of Burnett,

Dunn, Pierce, Polk, and St. Croix Counties. During my time in the State Senate, I have chaired and served on Senate committees relating to higher education, agriculture, tourism and energy. I have also served on the Legislature’s budget-writing committee. I work hard to be responsive and accessible to area residents. I greatly value constituent input, and most of the bills I have introduced have come as ideas from people in the district. It is very rewarding to work together to make changes in state law. If elected to represent District 10, what are two or three key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? One of my top priorities is to continue efforts to address the skills gap in order to meet our workforce needs and to provide opportunities for our citizens. Addressing the skills gap is one of the most frequent concerns I hear when listening to small business owners and employers in our region. I look forward to continuing to work with our educational partners and other stakeholders to ensure student success and economic prosperity. Another priority is addressing meth, heroin and other drug addictions, which continue to deeply affect individuals, families and communities in northwest Wisconsin. We must continue to work together to build upon the initiatives we have passed that save lives, address prevention and awareness, and provide treatment options. Building upon initiates we have passed, I would continue to work together with community leaders, treatment providers, and law enforcement on policies to address these challenges. CANDIDATE RESPONSES — DIANE ODEEN (DEMOCRAT, CHALLENGER) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 10th Senate District? I was born in Black River Falls and have lived in Wisconsin most of my life. Growing up on a dairy farm, I learned the values of hard work, honesty and perseverance. I was taught to honor the land and respect our neighbors. I learned the value of working with others to solve problems. And I learned to leave things better than when I found them. I think these are core Wisconsin values that are no longer being reflected in Madison. Residents in western Wisconsin deserve leaders who will prioritize local economic success and stop the outsourcing of jobs. As a community advocate and City of River Falls Alderperson, I’ve worked to improve public safety,

STUMP GRINDING AND REMOVING 800-282-8103 • 715-417-0303

invest in infrastructure and support economic development efforts. In my professional career, I’ve protected workers and fought for greater workplace fairness. I believe that if you work hard and play by the rules, you should be treated with respect and be able to support your family. I’ll hold the line on middle class taxes in Madison while making sure that the rich pay their fair share. I also believe that our local schools are the heart of strong commuDiane Odeen nities. My husband and I raised our two daughters here, and we want every family to have the same great opportunities our children had. I’m committed to restoring state funding for our local schools from K-12 to our UW schools and Technical Colleges. I love our state and its proud traditions of volunteerism, cooperation and public service. I’m committed to fighting for our shared values and standing up to the entrenched special interests who are calling the shots in Madison. If elected to represent District 10, what are two or three key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? Wisconsin has lagged behind states like Minnesota when it comes to wages and job creation, and we need to do more to strengthen our middle class and support economic development. In the State Senate, I’ll work with both Democrats and Republicans to improve high-speed internet access, reduce the economic burden on students seeking higher education, and protect access to clean drinking water. District 10 is among the worst districts in the state for access to broadband, and this decreases property values and limits local economic opportunities. I would work to change laws and policies that prevent potential local providers from offering internet services, and create incentives to expand access to broadband, especially in rural areas. Massive cuts to our UW schools and a lack of state financial aid has shifted more costs onto students. I’ll make college more affordable by restoring funding for our schools and passing legislation so families can refinance their student loans at lower interest rates. And last, but not least, I’ll fight to protect our public land and ensure access to clean drinking water. A good economy needs a great environment, but over the past several years, we’ve seen an erosion of local control that has tipped the balance in favor of polluters. SEE RACES, PAGE 9

CANDIDATE RESPONSES — ADAM JARCHOW (REPUBLICAN, INCUMBENT) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 28th Assembly District? I was fi rst given the great honor to represent the good people of Wisconsin in the State Assembly two years ago. In my one term, I have worked hard to keep my promises. When I fi rst ran, I promised to focus on jobs and I have. Wisconsin now has more people working than in history, and wages are now rising. I promised Adam Jarchow to focus on taxes, and I have. I have kept my promise to hold the line on taxes. I promised I would not be another career politician. Career politicians are more interested in the next election than the next generation. I have kept my focus on creating opportunities for the next generation. The results speak for themselves. In my fi rst term in the Legislature, nine of my bills were signed into law. These bills protect homeowners, small business owners, taxpayers and hunters. I was particularly proud to lead the fight to protect property owners from over-zealous bureaucrats and to protect hunters from harassment by anti-hunting extremists. In my fi rst term, I also showed an eagerness to learn about the businesses and jobs in our area. Since the time I took office, I have been conducting “Working With You Days� at small businesses in the area. Each month, I spend a full day working side by side with the hard working people of this area in their jobs. I have spent days working as a farmer, cheesemaker, server, beer delivery driver, garbage man, construction worker, grocer and many others. These days help me to better understand the jobs and businesses of this area. There is no more honest conversation than those that take place with co-workers on the job. I have gotten some great ideas from these days. I look forward to continuing to work with the good people of our area. If elected to represent the 28th Assembly District, what are one or two key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? We will continue to focus on common sense tax and regulatory reform so a growing economy can provide good jobs for each and every person. We will continue to reform our welfare system. People who can work, should work or they should not be able to take advantage of government programs. We will also continue to focus on education. I’m a proud graduate of the Clear Lake public schools. We know that a great education is the key to taking advantage of all this great country has to offer. We will continue to focus on “real-world� training through apprenticeships, fab labs and other opportunities to gain experience for the jobs of tomorrow. Finally, I have put together a 10-point plan called the Homeowners’ Bill of Rights. This plan will help make homeownership more affordable and will protect homeowners from governmental takings of their property.



Assembly District 28

CANDIDATE RESPONSES — JEFF PETERSON (DEMOCRAT, CHALLENGER) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 28th Assembly District? My wife, Nancy Stewart, and I have lived and worked in northwest Wisconsin our entire adult lives. We bought our rural Polk County home in 1984 and raised our daughter here. I was a teacher in the Unity School District for 23 years, retiring in 2008. I have been engaged in my community through service as a county supervisor, Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative Jeff Peterson board representative and member of the Polk County Board of Adjustment. I’ve been a volunteer with the Ice Age Trail Alliance, Kinship, Interfaith Caregivers, Northern Waters Literacy and the Natural Alternative Food Co-op. Those who know me will tell you that I’m a person who does his homework and comes prepared to meetings; and that, while I’m not afraid to speak my mind, I’m also someone who can compromise and is willing to change his thinking when the evidence demands it. I’m a Democrat, but I think for myself. My number one goal as an elected official will be to maintain a focus on what’s best in the long term for everyone in my district. If elected to represent the 28th Assembly District, what are one or two key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? If anyone doubted the influence of big money in Wisconsin politics, the recent release of documents related to illegal coordination between elected officials and outside “dark money� groups should have been a wake-up call. There is little doubt that money buys influence in Madison, and the more money you have, the more influence you can buy. New laws are written as special favors to campaign donors, and the pay-to-play cycle rewards compliant lawmakers with ever more donations. These problems are not new, but they have reached new heights in recent years. As a legislator, I will work to expose and put limits on the influence of big money. Schools are at the center of community life in rural Wisconsin. We must devise a funding formula that provides adequate resources for every school district without overreliance on the property tax. The taxpayers of our state should not be asked to fund both public and private schools; I would press to eliminate the subsidization of unaccountable private schools by eliminating the voucher program and redirecting those resources to our public schools. As a legislator, I would also be an advocate for protecting our water resources. Wisconsin is blessed with an abundance of clean water, but we can’t take for granted that it will always be there. As with most things, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I support the right of counties to enact regulations stricter than the state’s minimum shoreland zoning standards.

Election 2016 guide — state legislative races CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9

CANDIDATE RESPONSES — VINCENT ZILKA (VETERANS PARTY, CHALLENGER) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 28th Assembly District? I am a U.S. Army veteran, prior educator, gunsmith and machinist but one of the things I think makes me most suited to being a representative is that I consider myself to be a guardian and that I have always looked after people that I have felt were not able to or would not stand up for themselves. In this particular case, I am just expanding who I am covering at one time to the entire 28th Assembly district as I feel like the current political parties have ulterior motives and no Vincent Zilka longer represent their constituents. I am running to protect the integrity of the Constitution and Bill of Rights while ensuring that my constituents get their voice back as I believe that any “power” the government may have, it derives it from its citizens and they are the ones who should have the ultimate say over what happens. If elected to represent the 28th Assembly District, what are one or two key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? First and foremost, anything I say is my personal opinion, and I will not implement anything unless my constituents agree that it’s something that should be pursued. The entire reason I am running is to give the people their voice back. In schools, I would stop the school voucher system and give the funding to mental health programs for school systems to prevent suicides. We should implement an intake screening for students when they are first getting into the school system to evaluate them for susceptibility to depression and suicide and provide the earliest care to give the best long-term result. As for curriculum, give a Maps Test at beginning and end of year, eliminating all other federal and state standardized testing leaving the rest of the year for teachers to teach curriculum and not teach to tests. Bring back or make stronger hands-on programs (metal shop, wood shop, welding, electronics, and home economics). Why is there not a standardized rate per student across the state? Right now schools’ rates vary per student. A state teacher conference put on at the University of Wisconsin during the summer months would allow teachers to stay in dorms cost free to them and very cheap to the taxpayers, which allows them to interact with other teachers to talk about things they have tried in their classrooms and to develop new teaching methods and incorporate them into the classrooms al-

lowing for a greater level of instruction statewide. We should evaluate the requirements to be a teacher, allowing professionals in certain fields to teach even if they do not have a bachelor’s degree, which may help us with the teacher shortage and give a greater educational ability on the subjects. Another priority is law enforcement. Drugs such as meth, heroin, and prescription drugs affect individuals, families, unborn children and communities. We should fund long term treatment, which means nine months to a year minimum inpatient and outpatient. I would address the police shortage and funding issues in our district and ensure there is at least one K9 officer in each county.


What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 75th Assembly District? I am a life-long resident of the district and have received nearly all of my education within Barron County. My career in public service began at the age of 18 when I was elected to serve on the Rice Lake City Council. After serving for one year, I was elected as Mayor of Rice Lake. This experience provided me with the belief that you can truly make a difference for your community by advocating on behalf of area residents while servRomaine Quinn ing them in public office. Following a brief break from public service, I was elected to the State Assembly. During the past two years serving as a citizen legislator, I have gained invaluable insight and experience on how to get things done for the 75th Assembly District. This experience coupled with the understanding of what our communities need in order to thrive in northwest Wisconsin make me the ideal candidate to continue to make our priorities and values heard in Madison. I also have a seat on six committees and vice-chair two of them, which puts me in an ideal position to influence policy in Madison in the future. If elected to represent the 75th Assembly District, what are one or two key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? I have spent my first year and a half in office building relationships in order to be an effective representative not only for my district, but also for rural Wisconsin as a whole. Under the leadership of my office, as well as the office of two other representatives, we have created the Rural Wisconsin Initiative. This initiative is a package of bills that seeks to address the issues of education, healthcare, workforce, and technology. The Rural Wisconsin Initiative is much more than just a package of bills, however. This initiative is a movement to unite rural legislators, Democrat and Republican, to come together and ensure that rural Wisconsin has a seat at the table in our state capitol. Beyond the Rural Wisconsin Initiative, the Verizon Wireless participates in the Lifeline program which is a government school funding formula is a assistance program that offers qualified, low-income customers a discount of at least $9.25 on their monthly wireless service. Only eligible customers pressing issue for our area. may enroll in the program. School districts that are geographically large are penalized by our current You may be eligible for a Lifeline discount if you currently participate in funding mechanism.

high cost of transporting rural children as opposed to urban and suburban kids. Since taking office, I have been working with the Department of Public Instruction and other rural legislators to find solutions to this problem. Even though I voted to add more money to K-12 schools, many of our local schools still remain flat, or even received a cut. This is unacceptable. And finally, the issue that we should be pursuing every session and not just over the next year or two, is to continue to find ways to help people find quality employment. The success of our community depends on our residents being able to find middle class jobs to support their families. I have voted and will continue to support legislation that attracts new businesses to our area, as well as helping our citizens get the necessary training to obtain a family supporting job.

CANDIDATE RESPONSES — JOE HUFTEL (DEMOCRAT, CHALLENGER) What abilities and experiences make you the best candidate to represent the people of the 75th Assembly District? I am running for office because I believe that it shouldn’t be such a struggle for parents to provide for their children, further their own education, and have hope of realizing the American dream of owning a home and sending their kids to college. There are stark differences between Romaine Quinn and myself. While his career experience is extremely limited, mine Joe Huftel spans over three decades. I am proud of the time I spent as a highway department employee, as a teacher at the middle, high school and college level, and of my experience as a high school principal and college vice president. As an educational administrator I have developed, balanced, and managed complex budgets since 1992. I understand how schools are funded and I have a historic perspective on how that funding has been shifted to local property taxpayers over the past thirty years. In addition to my work as an education professional, I have worked on numerous public and private boards including the Rice Lake International Friendship Association, Rice Lake Curling Club Board, and the New Richmond Area Economic Development Committee. I am an avid sportsman who understands how important protecting our clean air and water is to our state’s sporting and outdoor enthusiasts, to our overall quality of life, and to economic development and tourism. I am not a career politician whose vote is beholden to wealthy, down-state campaign contributors. As a state representative, I will work across the aisle to pass legislation and address the challenges that Wisconsin faces. If elected to represent the 75th Assembly District, what are one or two key policies you would pursue during your term and how would you go about it? Education — rebuilding our public K-12 schools must be a priority. I will support a fair funding formula which assures adequate state aid to our struggling local schools and ending the giveaways that send hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to private schools. My opponent and Governor Walker have prioritized tax breaks for wealthy campaign contributors over the best interests of Wisconsin’s children. My opponent supports taking over $750 million from local public schools to fund private, unaccountable, voucher schools. To appropriately fund our public schools we need to stop the stripping away hundreds of millions of dollars to the voucher school program. We could also find additional financial resources to invest in education if Governor Walker would simply take advantage of the Federal Medicaid expansion funding. By doing so, Wisconsin could create 16,500 good paying health care jobs while 80,000 more Wis-

Building part of a new ramp are Lions Larry Johnson, Ron Nelson, Gary Fetzich, and Doug Plath. The club is also involved with the backpack program, community food shelf, meat raffles, scholarships, Bingo, chicken barbecues and the upcoming Halloween activities.


A worthy cause

Chanda Elliott (left) from Northwest Passage accepts a $3,000 check from Webb Lake Community Club member Deb Griffith. The money will cover one month of the “Artist in Residence Program.” This program focuses on the arts and nature-based therapy for mentally challenged children. Artists can do an internship with kids at restored Schaefer Cabin along the banks of the Namekagon River where they learn how art and nature go together.

SPOONER—In 2017, Regional Hospice Services will have the privilege of entering its 25th year of service to our community. A very special part of our care is our volunteer team. The Regional Hospice Spooner/Grantsburg team recently honored their volunteers for their years of service ranging from five years to 20. One of our 20 year volunteers, Joan Snell, got involved after her personal journey with Regional Hospice which began with her son Edward “Ed” Snell. Ed was a catalyst for the beginning of the Regional Hospice Services Spooner/Grantsburg team. He was a young 39-year-old from Spooner who was in the end stages of his illness. He was a very active member of the Spooner Community. Ed was the elementary school librarian, was active as a coach in Washburn County Special Olympics, along with being involved in many community organizations and events. When the decision was made that Ed would need Hospice Care, he and his family knew that he would need to be admitted to the Hayward Hospital. Although Regional Hospice did serve the Spooner area, they had not yet established a Spooner/Grantsburg team. “Mike Schafer, CEO of the then Spooner Community Hospital, along with concerned nursing staff, decided sending Ed to Hayward would be difficult for him, for us and all of the community who loved and supported him,” stated Joan. It was decided he and his family would be better served if he could stay right in Spooner, surrounded by the community who embraced him with love and care. So, Mike went to work to get a room for Ed at the Spooner Community Hospital. With the assistance of the Hayward Regional Hospice Staff and the Spooner Community Hospital, Ed was able to be with his family and community when he passed away on November 11, 1995, just one month and one day after his 39th birthday. Joan was so touched by the care her son received from Regional Hospice she knew it was time to give back and became one of the first volunteers for the Spooner /Grantsburg team. The Spooner/Grantsburg team was organized in 1995 and in 1998 opened their office in Spooner after partnering with the Spooner Health System to further extend its end of life services and support to the community. Joan has been a volunteer since February of 1996. Back then, volunteers had to have experience with Hospice before they were allowed to volunteer. That is not the case now. However, the majority of Regional Hospice volunteers have had a family member or close friend touched by Regional Hospice Services. When ask what the biggest misconception of Regional Hospice is, Joan answered, “people are sometimes hesitant to contact services due to financial issues.” Regional Hospice is a non-profit organization that provides services regardless of a person’s ability to pay. She also stated that one of the biggest changes since she started her volun-


Regional Hospice Volunteer Joan Snell was recently honored for her 20 years of service.

teer journey is the growth of the Spooner/Grantsburg service area. Joan’s volunteer services have ranged from sitting at the bedside of a patient, bringing meals to a patient, as well as being a major force in fund raising. Each family she has volunteered for has left an impression. One young man was a big Green Bay Packer Fan. If any of you know the Snells, Joan especially, you know they love the Green and Gold. On a visit to this young man, Joan brought him a “smash it” football. If you hit the football on something hard, it would scream, “Go Pack Go.” He loved that football. The young man’s mother later told Joan that it was one of his favorite things and brightened his day. This is what Regional Hospice volunteers do. They make a patient smile on a bad day, bring a meal to ease the stress of a caregiver, they read a chapter of a favorite book to a patient who may no longer have the strength to hold the book. They hold the hand of a patient who has no family close so they are not alone. Each Regional Hospice team member and volunteer considers their service a privilege to be a part of the care provided to patients and their caregivers in this chapter of their life’s journey. In closing, Joan stressed how grateful she was to Mike Schafer, the staff at Spooner Hospital and Regional Hospice for meeting the end-of-life care needs for Ed and the patients Regional Hospice has served since. “Regional Hospice is a great organization and something you appreciate is there when you need it. It is of great help to patients and their families,” Joan concluded.

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

Gus is a five-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who is not proud of his title as the animal with the longest stay at the shelter. This poor fellow came in on May 5 and is still anxiously waiting for that perfect someone to come get him. He has been a challenge to find the right home because he is seGus lective with his canine friends, and thinks cats are to chase instead of spoon with in the sun. Because of his size and energy level, we do not think he should be in a home with small children. Kris, my friend and shelter volunteer, has really bonded with Gus. It’s a bit comical when Kris tries to take Gus for a walk, or should I say Gus takes Kris for a walk? You have to see it to appreciate it. You also have to imagine that they aren’t too far different in weight (Kris is a petite gal and Gus is a big boy). Visualize that and add to it that Gus likes to weave his leash around Kris and in-between her legs. Kris assures me that Gus is a little anxious “out the gate,” but calms down as soon as he’s on the road for his walk. Kris has made it her mission to work with Gus on his behavior and he has made progress. Gus loves playing ball. When I was there the other day, I asked if I could take him to the play yard to play a little fetch. I was told that he sort of hurt himself the other day and that they would prefer that we don’t over-excite him. In other words, no ball. So, I met Gus in the play yard and tried to interact with him. He found about six tennis balls and brought them over to me one at a time to try to coax me into throwing one. It looked like Gus was saying to me: “You don’t like this ball to throw? Well, hang on and I’ll get that other one over there. Not that one either? Let’s try this one! C’mon Pam, you have six to choose from - just throw one!” He wanted so badly to play that he couldn’t focus on me giving him attention, so I brought him back in (along with the ball he had in his mouth). Maybe another day. Gus really needs someone with the patience, love and understanding to handle him. When I asked Gus what his requirements are in finding a new home, he said he’d like a big yard to run and chase a never-ending supply of tennis balls. Update: Baxter, the senior Beagle, has left the building. He has found himself a great home. Also, there is still time to place your order for one of 12 flavors of Kringles. What are Kringles, you may be asking? They are “22 ounces of pure pastry heaven!” Satisfy your sweet tooth and help the shelter with this fundraiser at the same time.

If you are interested in adopting Gus or another animal from our shelter, please visit our website at or contact the shelter at (715) 866-4096. The Humane Society of Burnett County is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We do not receive financial assistance from the county. Donations of money or supplies are tax-deductible.

Read the Sentinel


Winner, winner — venison dinner Aubrie Bell, 12, of Spooner, shot this seven-pointer during the recent youth season.


A fleeting sunset flamed through a ragged stand of jack pines across the bay. Patchy clouds provided just enough substrate to catch the color, and the faint breeze barely ruffled their reflection on the lake. A biting chill in the air confirmed a more challenging forecast ahead. Here, on a classic, rock knob campsite in the Boundary Waters, we perched above a scene of rugged beauty. A small campfire, composed mostly of jack pine twigs laden with tightly closed cones, crackled softly against the descending dusk as I pulled a book out of my portage pack. For this trip, I’d chosen Open Horizons, Sigurd Olson’s autobiography, which is filled with just as many lyrical scenes and philosophical meanderings as his other books. I read the first lines aloud. “The Pipes of Pan sound early before the sense of wonder is dulled, while the world is wet with dew and still fresh as the morning.” And before I could begin the next sentence, a sweet, tooting call floated across the bay. The first time I heard the regular, almost mechanical, song of a saw-whet owl, I thought it was a car alarm or back-up beep. I learned my lesson quickly, though, and now perk up my ears on the rare occasion of this simple serenade. Saw-whets are tiny owls, only as big as a robin, who are nonetheless tough as nails. They breed in the boreal forests of southern Canada, and the conifer forests of the northern and western United States. They are variably migratory, with some owls overwintering in their breeding territories, and others, especially from the far north, heading south. Their peak migration tends to coincide with leaf-off. This guy was right on time. The owl ceased tooting after less than a minute, but before I could return to Sigurd, another sound cut through the dusk. This time it was the messy pattering of ducks taking off, and then the breathy whistling of wind through wings as a small flock of goldeneyes relocated out of our bay. Their distinctive flight sound has earned these compact, black-and-white ducks the nickname “whistlers.” These interruptions to Sigurd’s musings on the Pipes of Pan seemed appropriate, since Pan and his pipes represent the harmonies of nature itself. In


There is beauty and pleasure even in a cold challenge.

mythology, Pan is the half-goat Greek god of the earth who makes music with a set of reeds. “What I heard there were the Pipes,” wrote Olson, “and what I sensed, I know now, was the result of a million years of listening and being aware...” This late fall trip was one of the quietest I’ve experienced in the Boundary Waters. Few other hardy souls braved the cold snap. Many birds had either migrated or fallen silent. The sounds we did hear, though, seemed more significant in their isolation. At about 10:30 p.m., the quiet gave way to the patter of rain on nylon. Just before dawn, the sound changed distinctly to the harsh chatter of sleet, and then the soft swish of snow. Snow! The precipitation continued off-andon all day. Happily, we were traveling with the wind, so the sleet simply hissed against our rain jacket hoods instead of stinging at our red cheeks. N eoprene gloves helped, but did not completely warm our hands. Portage landings were awkward, given the strong incentive to keep our feet dry. This is what outdoor adventurers often call “Type 2 Fun,” defined by The Mountain Training School as “not particularly enjoyable at the time, but rewarding after the fact.” Although there was something about the challenge—and certainly the swing of a paddle and the balance of a canoe—that was pleasurable in the moment, even against the cold. Sigurd Olson experienced pleasure in the face of discomfort, too, writing: “but for a

moment the Pipes had sounded above the crashing of the waves…” The weather did improve a little by our final day, and we enjoyed a calm, sunny afternoon listening to the clear whistles of a couple of gray jays, the chirping of an eagle, and the low, wild roar of a rapids in the narrows. That peaceful afternoon faded into one of the quietest nights I’ve ever spent in a tent, followed by a crisp dawn with every leaf edged in lacy frost. The lake steamed silently as we made breakfast, and a flock of geese chattered amicably in the distance— their conversation slowly drifting southward. Not in a hurry to end our trip, we sat idly watching the mists swirl, our empty oatmeal bowls forgotten. In the absolute calm, I began to notice an occasional soft rustling sound. All around our campsite, birch leaves were detaching one-by-one and drifting to the ground. Not a whisper of breeze disturbed them, but perhaps the weight of the white rim of frost was enough to break them free. “…and the Pipes were playing softly as they always do when a man has listened to their music and followed it to its source.”

The number is 877-485-2372. The decorating crew has been in changing tablecloths, adding pumpkins and scarecrows. Our center looks festive with black and orange decorations. On Saturday, Ralph and I put up the outdoor Xmas lights. We took advantage of the mild weather so we didn’t have to do it when it was snowy. Thanks to Lindi Hopkins for donating all the yarn. The seniors were happy to receive the yarn. If anyone is looking for yarn for hats and mittens, come into the center and check it out. Abby Brand picked up a nice split during Wii bowling. She picked up the 4-5-7-10. Rose Miller had a 213 game. Barb Geske and I tied two games. We would love to get more bowlers and even come to watch.

Students take part in conservation day

GRANTSBURG—What ended up being a beautiful sunny day, (although it didn’t start out that way) greeted Webster, Siren and Grantsburg students attending on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the “Annual Conservation Day for 5th Graders.” The day-long event was sponsored by the County Natural Resources Committee (NRC) and the County Land and Water Conservation Department (LWCD).

It was held at the Crex Meadows Wildlife Education and Visitor Center in Grantsburg. The day began at 9:30 a.m. when 175 students, teachers, chaperones, bus drivers, presenters and staff converged

at the center. The students were introduced to the presenters and informed of the day’s events. After breaking into seven groups, the kids rotated from session to session to learn about conservation topics presented by staff from the LWCD, DNR and Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). The topics included water quality (Paul Cook – Conservation Specialist); wildlife habitat (Kristi Pupak – Wildlife Educator); soils & erosion (Tom Fredrickson – NRCS Conservationist); trees (Jay Riewestahl – Forest Ranger); geology (John Park – Rock & Mineral Author-

ity); forest fire safety (Jason Doskocil – Forester); and aquatic invasive species (Lauren Finch – Wildlife Educator). During the lunch hour, DNR Conservation Warden Chris Spaight of the Grantsburg area, gave a presentation. The kids then completed a quiz on the sessions and were awarded prizes for the top scores. The top two from each school were: Piper Hicks and Brady Ulmaniec (Grantsburg); Olivia Taylor and Zavyer Anderson (Siren) and Garrett Logan and Will Johnson (Webster). Taylor and Logan won the overall

competition for having the best quiz score and answering the question, “What does conservation mean to me?” After the quiz, the students participated in a scavenger hunt with the top-scoring school winning the highly coveted traveling silver lunch box, stuffed full of candy. Siren won the hunt this year and will have possession of the lunchbox until next year. Congratulations to all competitors for their hard work, dedication and commitment to conservation issues.

Welcome to Grantsburg Cleared for spring planting, the Welcome to Grantsburg sign was awash in color earlier this season. The Burnett Garden Club planned and implemented the project to renovate the Grantsburg Welcome sign on Hwy. 70. The Garden Club has undertaken the yearly planting and maintenance of this garden since 1989.

Goblins and Jack-O-Lanterns are showing up everywhere, so I guess it is time to fill the candy dish. The dime bingo group enjoyed the treats furnished by Bernie (nothing homemade, of course). The snowbirds are starting to head south, so our group has shrunk a little. We wish them a healthy and warm winter and look forward to seeing them in the spring. There were six players for dominoes with Nancy being the big winner. There were five for pool and I was told that everyone played well. They play every Thursday at 1 p.m. If interested, just come in. The Wii bowlers are getting better every week. LaJuana had high individual game and series with 289 and 493. The Turkey Trackers had high team game and series with 873 and 1577. Splits picked up were: Barry 4-7-10 and 5-10, Gladys 5-7, Gordy 3-9-10, and Bill B 4-5-7-10. There were several 200 games. Lunches are served Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Pick up a menu and sign up for your favorites. Our monthly meeting is held the third Tuesday of every month at 12:30 p.m. All seniors are welcome. We can always use new members and ideas. Please plan to attend. Remember: Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can put off until next week. See you at the center.

Pirates take back-to-back conference titles BY GOOB COY SENTINEL SPORTS

BALSAM LAKE—The Grantsburg Pirates shut out the Unity Eagles 20-0 Friday night to reclaim the crown of the North Lakeland Conference. Not only did they do it back-to-back seasons, but they also went unblemished with a perfect 9-0 record. “That was a great way to win the title outright against a tough team. We knew this game would be a battle and Unity really gave us trouble, stuffing our run game most of the night,” Pirates Head Coach Adam Hale said. “Both teams really struggled throwing the ball in the wind, so Dakota’s big run in the first quarter and John’s 84yard TD in the fourth were the two big plays that we needed. “Unity did a good job bottling us up in the second and third quarters, but in the fourth, the offensive line opened a nice hole and John did the rest to seal the victory.” The Pirates struck on their opening drive when Dakota Schultz busted one loose for a 32-yard run to paydirt. The PAT by Avery Fagerberg was good, and Grantsburg had an early 7-0 lead. The Unity defense was able to slow down the Pirates’ running attack, and the passing game was a struggle in the strong wind. Grantsburg moved the ball down the field in the second quarter looking to add to their score, but the Eagles blocked a field goal attempt by Fagerberg to hold the score at 7-0 heading into halftime. On the Pirates’ first offensive drive of

the second half, they found the endzone and tacked on six more. This time it was Leo Chenal on a three-yard run around the edge for the score. The PAT was good, and the Pirates had a 14-0 lead. Grantsburg’s John Chenal put the fi-

nal nail in the coffin with 5:19 left in the game, when his offensive line opened up a huge hole and Chenal took it down the sidelines 84 yards for the touchdown. The PAT was blocked, but the damage was done and Pirates held on for the 20-0

shutout, securing them the conference title. “Defensively, our guys played solid all four quarters and the stop we made after giving them the short field in the fourth really was a big stand. John Chenal and Austin Bowman led us on defense and both have been really steady lately.” Chenal tallied eight solo tackles and four assists, while Bowman had four each. Nicholas Larsen had three solos and four assists. On the offensive side, it was Chenal leading the way in rushing with 134 yards on 20 carries. Leo Chenal was the leading receiver with 48 yards. Despite the wind, Schultz was seven of 11 for 84 yards at the quarterback position. The Pirates received the No. 1 seed in their section of Division 6 and will host Cochrane-Fountain City in the opening round of play-off action on Friday night. Game time is 7 p.m. Other teams in this section are No. 2 Eau Claire Regis, No. 3 Chetek-Weyerhaeuser, No. 4 Spring Valley, No. 5 Glenwood City, No. 6 Melrose-Mindoro, No. 7 Unity and No. 8 Cochrane-Fountain City. “To go 9-0 two years straight and win back-to-back Conference titles says a lot about the quality of kids we have on this team. This year, they had the target on their back every game and they responded each week with a win,” Hale said. “Now, everyone is back at 0-0 and every team in our section is good. It’s a new season and we’ll have to keep getting better if we want to make a playoff run.”

Mangen leads Dragons past Mellen BY GLEN SKIFSTAD SENTINEL SPORTS

BRUCE—Brady Mangen scored eight touchdowns as the Siren Dragons defeated the Mellen Granite Diggers 58-8 last Friday at Mellen. Mangen rushed 38 times for 307 yards. Dolan Highstrom passed twice, completed both for a total of 32 yards. His receivers were Steven Pruitt and Bailey Mangen. Siren put 27 points up by the end of the first quarter and added 12 more before halftime. The Dragons scored 13 in the third quarter and six in the last period of play. Mellen got their lone score in the last period of play. Siren qualifies for the Eight Man Jamboree which is at Stiehm Stadium in Schofield on October 29. Siren takes on Green Bay New Lutheran at 10 a.m. Other area eight man teams who will also play that day are Northwood vs Sevastopol (1 p.m.), Luck vs Oakfield (4 p.m.) and Prairie Farm vs Abundant Life/St. Ambrose (7 p.m.).


WASHBURN—“It was a tough way to go out,” lamented Tiger Coach Andy Smith following the 1514 loss on Friday to Washburn-Bayfield-South Shore. “Our kids played hard all night and had a chance to put them away – plays that we have to make if we want to grow as a program. “Give Washburn credit, they made a big play on fourth down with about two minutes left and we couldn’t answer.” WBSS got on the board first in the opening quarter on a one yard plunge by Connor Sorenson. The two point conversion failed and WBSS jumped out to a 6-0 lead. Only a short time later, the Tigers went ahead on a 45-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Gustafson to Jordan Larson. Frank DeBlase ran in the two point conversion and the Tigers were up 8-6 at the end of quarter

one. In the second quarter, both teams scored. WBSS got their three points on an 18-yard field goal by Gabe Jacobs. Webster got their touchdown on another Gustafson-to-Larson connection, this time for 19 yards. The Tigers’ conversion failed. Webster led WBSS 14 to 9 at the half. Neither team scored in quarter three. With just 2:10 left in the game, WBSS tallied their last points on an eight-yard toss from Gavin Soulier to Sorenson. The conversion failed, but the points were enough for the win. “I think our seniors did a nice job of helping the team come together towards the end of the season and help us take another step in the write direction,” complimented Coach Smith. “I think the kids will be able to take the bond that they created in football into the winter sports seasons.”

Tigers lose to Eagles

Pirates defeat Saints to take part of title



WEBSTER—The Webster Tigers lost to the Unity Eagles on Tuesday 3-0 with game scores of 25-20, 25-21 and 25-22. Taylor Howe had a kill to make the score 4-1 early in game one, but the Eagles fought back to knot the score at five. On the next play, Unity scored on a placement to go up 6-5 and after that, Webster could get no closer than a one-point differential for the remainder of that game. “We struggled early and just couldn’t recover,” said Coach Stefanie Janssen. The Tigers looked good in game two, jumping out to a 6-0 advantage. Two kills and two placements by the Tigers aided them in gaining that lead. Webster stretched the lead to 9-1, capitalizing on Eagle mistakes. But then Unity started their comeback, outscoring the Tigers 17-9 to knot the score at 18. Sophie Phernetton tallied a kill during that time frame and Howe recorded two. Tied at 21, a deflection, an ace by Unity’s Carly Nelson, a block by Eagle Myah Nelson and a long return by the Tigers gave the game to Unity. Just the opposite of game two was game three, where the Eagles grabbed a quick 8-0 lead. Howe narrowed the gap to 8-2 on a kill. A tapper by Skyler Winkler made it 8-4 for the Eagles. Unity kept the pressure until the Tigers knotted the score at 16. Two kills by Phernetton were made during that stretch. A kill by Howe upped the Tiger advantage to 18-16. A Unity ace tied the game at 20 and a Howe kill knotted it at 21. Unity went on a 4-1 run to end the game and the match. Taylor Howe had 19 kills in the game with Sophie Phernetton getting six. Kaitlyn Lee tallied 18 assists. Skyler Winkler led the way in digs with six. In regards to the playoffs, “the change from Division 3 to Division 4 gives us a chance to play against schools our size,” says Coach Janssen. “We have a chance to move deeper into the playoffs.”

ST. CROIX FALLS—The Grantsburg Pirates volleyball team had a lot on the line as they headed to St. Croix on Thursday night for a rematch with the Saints. Win— share a three-way tie for the conference title. Lose— drop to a third place finish in the West Lakeland behind SCF and Luck. The Pirates handled the pressure well, and after sputtering a bit and dropping the first game 22-25, they fought their way to a well-deserved share of the conference crown winning the next three games 2516, 25-21 and 25-19. “We ignored the hype. We blocked out the ‘conference showdown’ chatter. That doesn’t mean we weren’t fully aware that this was ‘do or die,’” said Pirates coach Deb Allaman-Johnson. “A win meant a three-way tie for the conference crown. A loss meant third place in the West Lakeland. You cannot play volleyball with a focus on the outcome. You can only focus on the process. Volleyball is momentum and mind-numbing mental challenges. You cannot just physically blast your way through. Each point represents a tiny little game to win. We had to focus on the things we could control, knowing there was a lot we could not control.” The gym was packed with not only Pirate and Saints’ contingents, but volleyball fans from all over the area who wanted to get in on the excitement of a battle between the two powerhouse teams. The Saints started hot and jumped out to a 6-1 lead, but never count Grantsburg out. They didn’t panic, and started to chip away at the lead, and almost pulled out a win. But the hole was too big to overcome, and the Saints took the first set 25-22. “We definitely struggled at times,” Allaman-Johnson said. “We looked tentative initially. We gave a ton of free balls. We made scads of unforced errors. We came roaring back in the second set. We battled back and forth in the third and fourth sets.” The Pirates found their groove, and behind some big blocks and diving saves, took the next set 25-16. And, as the coach said, the third and fourth sets were a battle, but the Pirates were able to go on small runs here and there that gave them the edge the Saints could not get past. “Our senior middles did a crazy good job of blocking,” the coach said of her team. “Jenna (McNally) played absolutely nutso awesome defense. Hitters took turns having the hot hand at crucial moments. Kenna (Johnson) stepped up her defense big time. “Our serve receive was pretty good considering SCF serves extremely tough! Setters got to just about


Rhiana Pochman was a big presence at the net, rejecting the Saints’ attacks with big blocks and putting down powerful hits.

every ball and even had some great digs. Our subs were supportive and strong and absolutely all-in. “It is an honor to share the West Lakeland Conference Championship with two amazing teams whose players and coaches I admire and respect: Luck and SCF. Heck, I admire and respect all of our conference coaches and I wish everyone healthy, safe, fair competition as we all head into the play-offs,” Allaman-Johnson ended with. Rhiana Pochman had a big night at the net, leading the Pirates in kills with 19 and blocks with six. Cassidy Lee played big as well, and wasn’t far behind with 10 kills and four blocks. Johnson tallied eight kills followed by Randi Siebenthal with four. Siebenthal was all over the court, leading the team in digs with 15. McNally was right there as well with 14. Claire Palmquist had seven with Rachel Glover and Johnson recording six each. The Pirates received the number one seed and began WIAA play-off action on Tuesday, hosting Glenwood City.

SIREN—The Webster Tigers finished their regular season with a win, defeating the Siren Dragons 3-0 on Thursday night. The game scores were 25-14, 25-19 and 25-16. “It was great to pick up a win to get our momentum going as we head into the playoffs” praised Tigers Coach Stefanie Janssen. Responded Coach Kristin Kosloski of the Dragons, “I thought we did pretty well tonight considering one of our starters was out with an injury. I’m proud of how the team played.” Webster moved out to a 10-1 lead thanks in part to the front line play of Taylor Howe. She had a couple of nice placements to go along with two kills. Two placements by Siren’s Cassandra Maslow kept the Dragons in the game at 16-9. Later, a kill by Tiger Skyler Winkler upped the margin to 22-14 and a short time later, the Tigers took the win. In game two, the contest was close through the tie at 12. Carolina Rosas and Taylor Howe both had kills during that time. A deflection and an ace by Howe put the Tigers out in front to stay at 14-12. Blocks by Winkler and Howe set the score at 23-16 and 24-16 respectively. A Webster kill by Kaitlyn Lee ended game two. Game three was a continuation of game two as both teams fought it out. There were six ties, the last coming at 10. Julia Cederberg gave a resounding kill, narrowing Webster’s edge to 14-13. Two kills by Howe stretched the margin to 17-14 Webster. Sophie Phernetton made it 20-15 on a kill. Mikki Walker’s ace moved it to 24-16 and then a short return by Siren finished the game at 25-16. Taylor Howe tallied 16 kills go to along with four blocks, four digs, five assists and four aces.

Kaitlyn Lee had 12 assists. Skyler Winkler totaled six digs, five kills, a block and an assist. Said Coach Kosloski, “The game against Frederic (upcoming playoff game) should be a good one.” Coach Janssen said, “We saw LCO in a previous tournament so we’ll take what we learned then. We’ll stick to the basics during the playoffs.”

Notice for Annual District Meeting (Section 120.08(1))

Compromising health for taste Last week, I was faced with a dilemma: Do I skip cooking with the super healthy spinach, or do I add something not as healthy to make it more palatable to my kids? They will usually eat anything I cook, but serving cooked spinach is a waste. As a young mother who didn’t like cooked spinach, I didn’t serve it to my kids either—shame on me! I realized later that introducing young children Wild Chow to strong-flavored or unusual foods Lisa Erickson prepares them to accept those foods later in life. I found a dinner that incorporates an entire bag of spinach and my kids will eat it all – a major feat! Granted, I added whipping cream. Spinach is a super healthy food. Cooked spinach has only 41 calories per cup and high amounts of vitamin K, A, manganese, folate and iron—plus other benefits. I had seen a recipe on a Tasty video on Facebook. Tasty videos show you how to make something in less than one minute. However, if you want to write the recipe down you have to watch it about 10 times. I decided this recipe needed more “oomph� so I added some red pepper, onion and garlic and served it with gemelli pasta to help absorb the beautiful sauce. It was a winner. My family ate every last drop. I know adding cream, as the recipe suggested, makes the dish higher in calories, but my boys each got a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals they wouldn’t have gotten had I served the cooked spinach by itself. The compromise was we didn’t have any dessert—not even a piece of fruit. I’ll take a healthy spinach






dish over dessert any day!

Chicken with spinach sauce Serves 4 4 chicken thighs with skin and bone 2 Tbsp paprika Salt and pepper to taste 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 small bag fresh baby spinach, or about 4 cups, packed 1/3 cup red bell pepper, diced 1 small onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, chopped 1 cup whipping cream 4 cups cooked gemelli (rotini style) or campanelle pasta Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large, oven-safe fry pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. In a bowl, toss chicken with paprika, salt and pepper, coating the chicken. Fry chicken skin side down in hot oil and until brown, then flip and fry other side, about 10 minutes. Be careful not to burn papri-

ka. Remove the chicken from pan and cover with foil. Cook onion and red pepper in fry pan for five minutes. Add garlic and cook for one more minute. Add the spinach and cook until wilted. Add the cream, bringing to a simmer. Check seasonings, adding more salt and pepper if necessary. Place chicken on top of spinach sauce. Bake 20 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked. Serve with hot pasta. Lisa Erickson is a food writer who loves an adventure—especially when food is involved.

OCTOBER 19, 2016

Too much â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stuffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stuff, we all have some â&#x20AC;&#x201D; accumulations of years of living. Some are mementos that we just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to get rid of yet. For me, some is stuff that should have been thrown away before I moved. Some of us have stuff in storage from parents that we just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to go through. My husband and I decided to go through all the stuff in our garage so that we could

actually get our cars in the garage this winter. It was amazing how much stuff we had that we had no use for anymore. And frankly, some of it was just junk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; broken things, and things missing pieces or parts that would make it usable. The same could be said of our spiritual lives. We all have stuff that prevents us from living our lives as God intends us to. Some of

the stuff clutters our lives, and leaves us cold â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no room in our â&#x20AC;&#x153;garageâ&#x20AC;? for the things that are meant to be there. Some of the stuff are things we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to get rid of yet. If this describes you, and it does me, prayer is a wonderful tool. Pray that God reveals your stuff and helps you to throw it away. Then pray that God helps you to replace it with His stuff.

Simple steps to reduce odds of developing breast cancer When it comes to breast-cancer prevention, most women are probably aware of the need for self examinations and mammograms, as well as awareness of a family history for breast cancer. But other factors that can help women avoid breast cancer may not be as well known, or at least not as often discussed. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this might be the right time to discuss them. “Although breast cancer is, rightfully, a significant concern, every woman should keep in mind that there are things in her control that can help reduce her odds of developing it,” says Dr. Pawan Grover (, who has treated cancer patients and has served as a medical correspondent for CNN and other news organizations. For example, he says, it’s important to understand the effect estrogen has in increasing your risk of breast cancer – and how you might encounter estrogen more than you realize. “What many women may not be aware of is that, because of the pesticides and hormones in our food, we are bombarded with estrogen,” Grover says. That’s why diet, nutrition and exercise can be so important in breast-cancer prevention, he says. That may sound simple enough, but some people could be surprised at a few of the common things people routinely consume that may put women at greater risk for breast cancer. No need to panic, though, Grover says. These items don’t need to be eliminated entirely from your diet, but a little moderation may be in order. • Sugar. Many people already avoid sugar for other health reasons, but breast cancer could be added to the list of reasons, so it might be worthwhile to avoid or at least limit sugar intake, Grover says. Too much sugar leads to excess

weight gain, and being overweight can increase the risk of breast cancer because fat cells make estrogen. • Alcohol. Numerous studies have shown a connection between drinking alcohol and breast cancer. The more a woman drinks, the more the risk of breast cancer increases, according to the National Cancer Institute. For example, a woman who drinks more than three drinks a day is 1.5 times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who doesn’t drink. • Soy. Studies have shown that soy could increase the risk of breast cancer because it can stimulate the genes that cause cancer to grow. But soy is likely not a problem if consumed in moderation. Although it’s unclear from research just how much of a concern soy should be, Grover suggests it doesn’t hurt to be cautious. “I would recommend minimizing it because there is still a question about the risk,” he says. About 12 percent of women — or one in eight — will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime, according to About 40,450 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2016 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989. There could be several reasons for that decline, including treatment advances, early detection and more public awareness. “Regardless of statistics, the important thing to remember is that you can take a primary role in protecting your own health,” Pawan concludes.

For enrollment, contact Julie McClelland-Komorouski – Wisconsin Well Woman Program Coordinator at 715-485-8514.

Did you know? Despite the ongoing efforts to study cancer and cancer treatments, in many ways the disease remains a mystery to researchers and medical professionals alike. According to data published by the research-based healthcare company Roche, for reasons that are not entirely understood, breast cancer is more common in the left breast than the right. The left breast is 5 to 10 percent more likely to develop cancer than the right breast. The left side of the body is also 10 percent more vulnerable to the skin cancer melanoma than the right side of the body.

Can’t seem to find the time for that mammogram? Because early detection is the best protection against breast cancer,

timing is everything Don’t delay, schedule your mammogram today. 715-463-7292.

‘A nasty bump in my road of life’ BY TODD BECKMANN SENTINEL

Survivor: Christine Sundberg, Siren Still in treatment SIREN—By her own admission, Christine Sundberg had put off breast cancer screening too long. “Because of problems I had had in the past, I was reluctant to go through the testing all over again,” she explained. “So I put it off — longer than I should have.” That became painfully apparent earlier this year. “My mother went for her yearly checkup and was diagnosed with breast cancer,” Sundberg shared. “Then my sister panicked and made everyone in the family go in and get checked.” That was how she found out she had Stage II breast cancer. “It was right before school got out last spring,” she added. “I did not want to go through the lengthy procedure of mammogram, ultrasound and imaging and all the time that would’ve taken.” Christine Sundberg

That’s why she went to Green Bay where her sister lives. “In one week, they did the mammogram, the ultrasound, the biopsy, the CAT scan — everything was done that same week,” Sundberg remarked. “If you have to go through it, that’s the way to go.” The news put the kibosh on her summer. “I’m an avid bike rider and I didn’t get a chance to do any bike riding,” she lamented. “If I tried to get up on the bike, I got dizzy and some vertigo kicked in, so no bike riding for me.” But that wasn’t all her limitations. “I couldn’t be out in the sun at all to do anything — it was a pretty lousy summer,” Sundberg added. Knowing she had to return to work in late August, Sundberg transfered her care to Marshfield Clinic in Rice Lake. In all, she endured six chemotherapy treatments — each three weeks apart. “I stayed in Hayward with friends after moving my care to Rice Lake this summer so there was always someone with me to go to any of my appointments, treatments, doctor consults, lab draws, any of it,” she explained. “With the start of school, I would go by myself —I just had my last chemo drug treatment last week.” Now that she’s done with that portion of her treatment, she can see some humor in it. “If I was a good girl and did not kick or bite the doctor or nurses, my friend would always take me for ice cream afterward,” she said with laugh. Her treatments, four different drugs, were a whole day affair. “They were not fun days,” she pointed out.

The drugs could not be administered simultaneously, so Sundberg got them back-to-back with time in between to make sure there was no reaction — plus the nausea drugs. “One of the drugs they give me include steroids so I am able to keep going strong for a day or two,” she reported. “But by day three I begin to drag down and feel the effects.” That’s why the timing of the appointments was critical. “The appointments were always on a Tuesday — by the time I started to feel really tired, I had the full weekend to rest up,” she reasoned. With no blood relation anywhere in the Siren area, one might think she had to go through this ordeal alone, but that was most definitely not the case. “The support here at school has been wonderful,” Sundberg exclaimed. “They had a fundraiser for me, sold tee-shirts and did activities all during homecoming week, like buying chances to put a pie in the face of a teacher — all told, they raised $7,500 for me.” She has sent written thank-you notes to those she knows were involved but wanted to thank those she didn’t know were involved. The school even went the extra mile and hired Barb Holcomb to serve as assistant librarian. “If I am too tired, I am free to leave work early or not come in at all,” Sundberg noted. “That is the good thing about having Barb here — I do not have to have the added stress about being sick or too tired to come to work.” Her doctors cautioned her to take life easy. “Around here, people will yell at me if they see me overdoing it,” she laughed. So now with the completion of the chemo, it’s more waiting for Sundberg. “I have to wait at least one month before the doctors can do the surgery,” she continued. She opted for the double mastectomy. “I’m tired of dealing with it all,” she said. That may not be the end of her treatment. “The doctors will do an ultrasound after the mastectomy and we’ll make a decision on radiation after that,” Sundberg explained. By the end of the year, her treatment may be complete. “All along, the doctors have been giving me a great prognosis,” she pointed out. “They told me mine is one of the most common cancers they see, they treat it all the time and I should be fine.” The nurses even made her laugh about it. “My nurses kept referring to it as ‘a nasty bump in my road of life,’” she recalled. “They’ve been very positive from the beginning.” Following the completion of her treatment, Sundberg will be on an estrogen-blocking drug for five years to help prevent any kind of reappearance of the cancer. Given her story, Sundberg’s advice is no-nonsense. “Get your checkups done,” she concluded.
