About This Year’s Hal Prize

I clearly remember the day when Tom McKenzie came into my bookstore and asked if the Peninsula Pulse’s new writing contest could be named after my father. Tom was a regular visitor to the store who enjoyed talking about books. He would frequently ask for thoughts on the latest issue of the Peninsula Pulse – a newspaper he had co-founded with David Eliot – from my father when he was alive, or from my mother or me if we were in the store. Through the years, the growth of the annual contest moved through several changes including a name change and the additions of photography and nonfiction to the existing poetry and fiction categories. Businesses and individuals were gracious in their support of the contest from the outset. Still, the evolution was slow and though the number of entries in all categories grew steadily through the years, we still felt there were many more possibilities we had yet to explore. Last year, with the addition of Write On, Door County as a collaborator many of the possibilities we envisioned became reality. Write On, Door County’s generous donation of stays at their house in Juddville allowed us to attract recognized and published authors to judge our writing contests. We significantly broadened our marketing efforts to reach a wider audience, which resulted in submissions from across the state, the region, and – in some cases – nationally. And we streamlined the submission process for both writing and photography. This year’s contest saw us move the deadline for submissions to March 1st with the issue, itself, still published on the first Friday in August. This change allowed the panel of pre-screeners and the final judges additional time to make their selections, and it allowed our graphic department more time to design and layout this year’s issue. With the publication of this year’s Hal Prize issue, which you hold in your hands, next year’s contest begins! So writers and photographers you are now formally notified: start working on your entries for the 2016 Hal Prize – the submission process remains the same and the website is ready to begin accepting your creative efforts (TheHalPrize.submittable.com/submit).

∞ l a h < g n i r o n o h

[harold grutzmacher] This annual issue honors a man whose passion for writing and teaching the craft of writing spanned his lifetime. While his specialty was the English Romantic period, particularly William Wordsworth, he also loved reading (and re-reading) James Bond novels. A widely published poet, he was also a regular columnist for the Door County Advocate when it was privately owned – he even convinced his editor to allow him to cover the Chicago Cubs, which afforded him several trips each season to Wrigley Field, where he became good friends with other sports writers from far larger newspapers. His greatest passion, however, was teaching writing. As an English professor at Carthage College (then in Carthage, Ill.), Knox College, and Parson College he influenced hundreds of undergraduate writers. Later, as vice president for academic affairs at the University of Tampa and dean of students at Beloit College, he continued to teach the freshman English courses, though these courses were not part of his job description. In Door County, he and his wife, Marge, opened Passtimes Books, where he enjoyed discussing literature with other avid readers. And he continued teaching writing, both at The Clearing and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Several of these students later brought him manuscripts which he helped edit into finished books. His encouragement and gentle, though pointed, criticism, influenced innumerable students and community members. The Peninsula Pulse, along with Write On, Door County, look to continue in the same spirit by encouraging writers and photographers of all skill levels with The Hal Prize.

PENINSULA PULSE  august 7–14/2015 DOORCOUNTYPULSE.COM

process∂μΔproc process Every year, The Hal Prize invites people of all ages and artistic abilities to submit stories, photographs and poems for a chance to earn ink in our annual literary issue. It begins the day after the current year’s issue lands on newsstands and in the mailboxes of our subscribers – an invitation to log onto TheHalPrize.com and upload the stories, poems and/or photographs you were inspired to capture. While your entries sit patiently on our online submissions manager site, Submittable, until the deadline, The Hal Prize organizers here at the Peninsula Pulse are exploring ways to enhance and grow the contest. This year, we decided more time was the answer – more time for our pre-screening committee to make its way through the hundreds of submissions, narrow down its top picks, and pass them onto our esteemed judges for the final selection. To do this, we pushed our typical July 1 deadline up by four months to March 1. While this meant less time for contest hopefuls to enter, and the potential for fewer submissions, we were up for

the challenge, amping up our efforts to get the word out through email notifications and in-print press releases. By the time the contest closed, we had received 52 fiction, 28 nonfiction, 109 poetry and 77 photography submissions. With each poet and photographer able to submit up to three entries, that meant hundreds of entries in those categories. Those extra four months gave our pre-screeners and judges the ability to give each entry the time it deserved, and our artistic director the time to put together the beautiful issue you now hold.

It takes the time and talents of many to make The Hal Prize what it is and with that, we thank our judges – Michael Perry, Heid E. Erdrich, Lesley Kagen, Len Villano and Kelly Avenson – for sharing their time and talents with the contest, our sponsors for their undying support of The Hal Prize, our readers and of course, the hundreds of individuals near and far who were inspired to share their creative representations with us. Welcome to The Hal Prize 2015!

contest judges Poetry

Fiction

Judging this year’s poetry contest is Heid E. Erdrich, author of four poetry collections, most recently Cell Traffic: New and Selected Poems. Her collection National Monuments received the 2009 Minnesota Book Award for Poetry. She is the author of Original Local: Indigenous Food Stories and Recipes from the Upper Midwest and teaches in the MFA creative writing program at Augsburg College.

Judging this year’s fiction contest is New York Times bestselling author Lesley Kagen, a Milwaukee native whose novels include Whistling in the Dark (which appeared on the American Booksellers list, Midwest Booksellers list, and won the Midwest Booksellers Book of the Year), Land of a Hundred Wonders, Tomorrow River, Good Graces, Mare’s Nest, The Undertaking of Tess and The Resurrection of Tess Blessing.

Nonfiction

Michael Perry, a New York Times bestselling author, humorist and radio show host from New Auburn, Wis., judged this year’s nonfiction contest. Perry’s bestselling memoirs include Population 485, Truck: A Love Story, Coop and Visiting Tom. His first book for young readers, The Scavengers, was published in 2014 and first novel for adult readers, The Jesus Cow, was released May of 2015. Raised on a small Midwestern dairy farm, Perry put himself through nursing school while working on a ranch in Wyoming, then wound up writing by happy accident. He lives with his wife and two daughters in rural Wisconsin, where he serves on the local volunteer fire and rescue service and is an intermittent pig farmer. He hosts the nationally syndicated “Tent Show Radio,” performs widely as a humorist, and tours with his band the Long Beds. He has recorded three live humor albums.

Photography

Photography Director for the Peninsula Pulse and Door County Living Len Villano is also an artist, musician, recording engineer and producer, who left a promising career in architecture years ago to devote his life to capturing the beauty of nature on film. Kelly Avenson, owner and photographer at Avenson Photography (located on Third Avenue in downtown Sturgeon Bay), specializes in real life and portraiture photography. Her work can be found in the pages of the Door County Advocate, the walls of Sourced in Sturgeon Bay, and many homes throughout the county, state and country. She was honored to be chosen for the Art of Photography Show in San Diego in 2010 along with being published in Budget Travel Magazine, National Geographic Kids and other publications throughout the country.

[winner] “Double Visions” {By Steven Mayer

[runner–up] “Monarch in Autumn” {By Karen Majkrzak

I see beauty in nature and capture it selectively with composition and light. There are instances in nature that look and intuitively feel proper. Those are the images I am drawn toward. Most compositions at first glance are simple, but when I look, really study it, and begin to immerse myself in it, I see the complexities that drew me to it.

[Judge’s Comments “This photo has all the components that I believe make a photo great. An interesting subject in the Church/ Mission bell tower and crosses, strong composition using the ornate lines of the wood roof to redirect your eye from the bell back up to the crosses, and great light making the subject pop against the dark sky and using the shadowed bell tower to balance with the whiter section of the building.”

{len villano

[third] “County Fair Flavor” {By Jim Rossol

I am a retired director of non-profit organizations, living in Madison and Sister Bay, WI. In my ‘Renewment’, I discovered a love of photography and focus on the beauty of nature in all seasons.

[Judge’s Comments

I consider myself lucky to be able to pursue my lifelong passion for photography in my once long-time vacation destination as a retired full-time resident of Door County.

[Judge’s Comments

“What I liked about this photo was the background, especially the bokeh. All the out-of-focus highlights add a touch of whimsy to the photo. Where the monarch is almost a bonus and the background is the real photo. Almost! The monarch is sharp and I believe well placed compositionally to fit the photo. Not quite the rule of thirds but thats OK. Rules were meant to be broken, as long as it works. Close but not quite centered. Because the monarch is rather small in the frame the placement helps to draw your eye to the butterfly.”

{len villano

“I liked this shot because of the lights and time of day. I believe it is just around sunset as you can see in the sky so there is still enough ambient light to make the subject (food stands) really stand out and glow but not so dark outside that the artificial stand lights wash out. I also like the implied action of the customers placing an order.”

Learning > to March

{By Diane LeBlanc

I was four when my mother first allowed me to touch the phonograph arm, weightless as a toothbrush when I expected hammer or wrench. We were doing what we did on rainy spring days alone, the house a polished museum, when no one needed her but me. Her boxed set of 78s was a book with one worn page, “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” its red label sprouting between poinsettias and tulips. She cupped the record’s edge in the length of her palms with such care that for years I believed music would disappear if I touched the grooves. I raised the phonograph arm with my index finger the way I’d lifted a sick bird’s head to feed, fearing if I didn’t hold it just so, I would drag us into silence. But when I lowered the needle drums rolled, flutes whistled, and we marched in circles, like wind-up soldiers, around the playroom. That was 1968. A different war then and the marching our secret as she prepared me to enter the world. Diane LeBlanc is the author of three poetry chapbooks: Sudden Geography (2014), Dancer with Good Sow (2008), and Hope in Zone Four (1998). Her essay “Work in Progress” appears in Claiming Our Callings: Toward a New Understanding of Vocation in the Liberal Arts (Oxford University Press, 2014). Diane directs the writing program and teaches at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. Website: www.dianeleblancwriter.com .

[Judge’s Comments “‘Learning to March’ created such a fine tone of intimacy and childhood remembered. The poem turns to the larger world in the end which makes the quiet moment with the mother fill with meaning for us all. Nicely done!”

At the Clothesline The wind is so delicious, this last day of July I must stay with the laundry a little longer, find a few more things to pin up on the line. Especially the towels and sheets. And I will leave them, drifting lazily in this last-day-of-July breeze, until the sun is well down and the weather man is calling for clouds and rain tomorrow. I will pad out to the line in my socks, evening glass of wine thrumming my ears fold these simple things away

and tuck them into the bottom of the linen closet. And on a February night, when there are no windows open, and the wind is nobody’s friend I will slip them out, onto the towel bar and the mattress and we will breathe the warm breath of the last day of July as we dry each other and slip into our dreams that turn around each other like the wind.

when you need us we’ll be your safety net

Like the wind from the last day of July, we will slip into our dreams and turn them around each other the way the wind from the last day of July slipped into the threads and waited for us. And our dreams will twine into one warm breath from the last day of July and we will sleep the sleep of a cool July evening with the wind lifting the curtains and hiding between the threads. Peter Sherrill’s poetry has appeared in a number of regional and national publications. He’s won the WRWA Jade Ring twice, as well as the WFOP’s Muse Prize for Excellence in Poetry. He’s a past president of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets.

[Judge’s Comments “‘At the Clothesline’ is a sensual, steady poem composed with clarity of description and intention.  There’s something more though, a love of life, that left me thinking of those sheets and wishing for July breezes — a memorable poem.”

The Secret Life of Plants After David Attenborough, Dylan Thomas, Wallace Steven

You never asked me whether I believe in God but I’m going to tell you anyway. I don’t. Not in saviors or mothers, buddhas or fathers. Not in any prescribed Way or Truth although I do love the vernal or autumnal equinox when day and night are equal, and the Anishinaabe faith in a Great Spirit that shares responsibility with people and animals as sentient beings. Yet when I see the time-lapse images in David Attenborough’s films of plants taken on every continent, in every stressful state --extreme heat, frozen tundra, flood, drought excessive sunlight, near darkness-and see the lengths to which each plant will go to live, sometimes waiting for years under ground for the right conditions to bloom, then quickly depositing seed for the next cycle, I willingly pledge allegiance to creativity itself. The force that through the green fuse drives the flower. The ingenuity that causes a fern to curl around her sister to reach the sun and a woman or man to write poetry. If there must be a god in the house, let it move as plants do, as co-creators of a livable world. Estella Lauter lives on 31 acres of woodland in Door County after a long career both teaching and learning in the UW. She has published three chapbooks with Finishing Line Press and has two more in the works.

[Judge’s Comments “‘The Secret Life of Plants’ presents a rare and thoughtful voice that considers and respects multiple viewpoints while bravely asserting a kind of earthspirit atheism. Its confidence and thoughtfulness drew me back for several reads.”

Refuse Pile of Mortal Sins

{By Albert DeGenova

Tree limbs, plastic water bottles, unfurled condoms, Lake Michigan sweeps with steady strokes – its refuse neatly piled against smooth stones in quiet corners of its sandy beaches. Freeways too, though lacking wave and tide, collect what’s left behind -- hub caps, broken tail lights, a small blue jacket -- all piled high against cement lane dividers under dark overpasses. My front yard accumulates its own leftovers in that neglected corner between stairs and house, under some shrubs – washed-out window cleaning flyers, soaked and crumbling newspapers, the lost homework of passing kids. This is the way of discarded things once valuable, once practical, once desired – there is a place behind my third rib on the right side where I’m sure I’ve tossed my first kiss and a long-winded lesson from my grandfather on making crosses out of long green fronds on Palm Sunday. But under my heart’s back porch where no one dares, so many shredded photos and scratchpad scribblings and silver napkin rings dropped between wooden slats, underneath with the spider webs and raccoon droppings is the place of mortal sins, the buried evidence, the fall from grace – sometimes, on gray afternoons in November or warm mornings in May, I’m tempted again, to reach to touch what is gone, that once-known resurrection that one turn of the hour glass so much more threatening than that last bite of chocolate rum truffle spoiled as it is still wrapped in a napkin, saved from then, a gift for me from then, way down there, never quite out of sight. Some acts are simply unforgivable – no matter how strong the hunger. Albert DeGenova is a poet, editor, teacher and blues saxophonist. His most recent collection is A Good Hammer from Timberline Press, 2014. In June of 2000, he launched the literary/arts journal After Hours, for which he continues as publisher and editor. DeGenova received his MFA in Writing from Spalding University.

[Judge’s Comments “Excellent control of syntax in this poem one 15 line stanza is just one sentence — impressive. Close to top 3.”

To Hell with Patterns

{By Liz Dolan

Now that her home is silent red-bordered quilts lining her walls seem as loud and garish as graffiti, Jacob’s Ladder too structured The Double Wedding Ring too precise. No more stencils exquisitely sketched. In mourning she stitches a crazy quilt of scattershot patches: a swatch of her husband’s khakis, a pocket from her son’s beige shirt, a pinprick of fresh blood. To get more light she throws open her doors but cannot bear the rows of tall blue lobelia the clusters of yellow asters she planted herself the angles of the scrub pine bony in the wind. Liz Dolan’s poetry manuscript, A Secret of Long Life, nominated for both the Robert McGovern Prize, Ashville University, and a Pushcart has been published by Cave Moon Press. An eight-time Pushcart nominee and winner of Best of the Web, she was a finalist for Best of the Net 2014. She won The Nassau Prize for Nonfiction, 2011 and the same prize for fiction, 2015.

Meeting a Friend

{By Linda Aschbrenner

Caught in cold shadows, I shiver through high plateau mist. Dark clouds drift down to the tide. A two-mile walk to the Kafka Hill Cafe to meet a friend dead since November. Our date was set October 19th. He’ll disregard his current state, rock my spoon on the tabletop or dress as a wren and tap at the glass, sing out over the hawthorn. Linda Aschbrenner, Marshfield, edited and published the poetry journal Free Verse (1998-2008) and founded Marsh River Editions in 2001, publishing 17 chapbooks for fellow poets. She is presently working on a family memoir in poetry and prose with her sisters. She enjoys reading, writing, and photography.

[Judge’s Comments “Short and simple, but admirable for the withheld sentimentality. Love the wren at the end.”

Written After Seeing a Woman with her Emotional Support Dog

{By David Clowers

I feel the same need as she about emotional support poems: I keep them on a very short leash lines left to wander will not offer much warmth. But if you’ll come nearer and then hold your match against this very small poem, even my words will create heat. A practicing attorney, David began to take the discipline of writing poetry seriously after his move to Door County in 2001, trying for a time to write a poem a day. These days, the muse does not confide in him as often as that, but some of his poems have been published in the Peninsula Pulse, Knock, Fox Cry, Verse Wisconsin,Your Daily Poem and Re-Verse. He is a member of the Unabridged poets’ group, and also teaches the craft of poetry for Door County’s Learning in Retirement program.

Is That All There Is? As sung by Peggy Lee

A sad song, a stoic song one I loved without knowing why because in the year it won a Grammy for Peggy I moved west joined a new community had a child and life suddenly moved so fast it felt like a fire, a circus, love, death all at once no time for disappointment but under that flurry were years of waiting for parents to come home from work for the next move north or south for friends who lasted more than one year anything to show I had been on earth even a tombstone preferable to leaving no trace at all and now I think those lean years made the others seem like more than enough too much of a good thing more than I needed for one life So if I could sing like Peggy ever so slightly off key in that throaty voice I’d ask why I had so much and others so little why can’t everyone be dancing Estella Lauter lives on 31 acres of woodland in Door County after a long career both teaching and learning in the UW. She has published three chapbooks with Finishing Line Press and has two more in the works.

“So, how was it?” Anne asked me that evening, a bit too casually but I’d had a long day and a tough court case on my mind so I missed the signs.

“Interesting. Remember the movie The Defiant Ones where Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier are escaped convicts chained together? Kind of like that.” There was a pause. Like many of my attempts at humor of late this one had fallen flat. “Jack, is this really such a good idea?” she asked, finally. “With everything already on your plate? The stress, the long hours, your high blood pressure,” and her gaze shifted surreptitiously to my waistline, which had grown by several belt notches during a brutal stretch of overwork and a long and sedentary winter.

“Honey, it’s just a few hours a week, during lunch hour. All the partners are getting pressure to do more in the community. Of course it’s a pain in the...” “And what about Paris?” she asked suddenly. “I thought we were going to try to find the time to go back this summer? Between your partners and perfect strangers there’s no time for us.” She stood abruptly and left the room. That day I’d had my first session as a volunteer tutor with the Literacy Council, a local not-for-profit organization working to reduce the region’s alarmingly high level of adult illiteracy. Joe, the adult learner I’d been assigned to was described as a 50 year old with a 10th grade education, but who read at a 3rd grade level. It wasn’t clear whether the man was employed, married or had a family. Leading up to our first meeting I’d formed a mental picture of a man, prematurely aged, hunched and gaunt from hard physical labor and perhaps a bit sullen and uncommunicative from the repeated slights that I imagined he’d endured over the years. But my first impression of Joe when he stood to greet me that day was of a man possessing enormous power and vitality. He was about my height, a little over six foot, but wide through the chest and shoulders, and without any of the belly you’d expect

sa

in an older man and I found myself pulling my stomach in and standing taller, and he grasped my hand with an effortless but massive grip pressure that he eased almost instantly when a look of pain must have registered on my face. We stood for a silent moment like two teenagers on a first date, our awkwardness compounded by the fact that we were so obviously from two different worlds: me, white and clad in work-casual khakis and blue blazer; Joe, black and wearing simple working man’s jeans and a faded tee shirt from some long forgotten music festival. Then he smiled broadly. “Man, I been looking forward to this all week,” and he laughed in the deep, uninhibited way of someone unbound by convention. “And damn if you isn’t exactly what I was expecting. My girlfriend owes me a buck!” He read haltingly at first, like an Egyptologist deciphering an ancient wall of sand-scoured hieroglyphics. But he was bright and hard-working and in the weeks that followed we made surprising progress. Soon the casual, ice-breaking discussions about what we’d done on weekends or interesting current events were stretching longer and into other areas. Details about Joe’s past seeped out slowly

over the course of our weekly sessions. Truck driver. Mechanic. Cook. Foundry worker. Then a horrific workplace accident had put him on his back for months and he’d had no steady employment for the past nine or 10 years. He seemed to have few worldly possessions and the means of his subsistence were a mystery. I knew he went everywhere by bicycle, and one time when we’d come out of the Literacy Council building into a blustery early spring drizzle I offered to give him a lift. “In that thing?” He pointed at my BMW and laughed. “I owned a car once. Pretty soon the damn thing owned me. Don’t miss ‘em. I’ll see you later man.” As our relationship developed into a friendship of sorts he liked to poke a bit of fun at me and when he asked me how my weekend had been he’d always answer for me: “Let me guess -- work.” Then he’d contrast that with his own weekend, invariably a fishing trip to a nearby lake with his girlfriend or perhaps an impromptu party with friends. (“…Fixed a tractor, traded it out for a whole pig. My man Robert butchered it; then we dug an open pit barbeque and threw a party for about 30. Only problem was an old girlfriend showed up uninvited and man, you should have seen the fireworks!”). And so on. He seemed to sense, too, that my wife and I were struggling through a seasonal drought of the type every long marriage goes through. But the long-awaited and always predictable rains hadn’t arrived, and now we seemed like two strangers traveling together in a barren, hostile country. Perhaps he picked up on something in my

voice when on occasion my wife called me during a session. Once, I’d just returned from a particularly strenuous weekend trip to our vacation home in Wisconsin where I’d fired our caretaker in a cost-cutting measure, and I let it slip that my wife was none too happy about two days of back-breaking labor. With two kids in college out of state, two homes, a country club membership and four cars, even my law firm partnership wasn’t generating enough income to cover all the expenses, and what had seemed like a relatively simple ‘belt-tightening’ had turned into a weekend of harsh recriminations and the opening of old wounds. Joe, who seemed to have a particularly deep understanding of women gave a low, sympathetic whistle and stated one of his many truisms, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” It wasn’t long before he was giving me what I guessed were small tokens of his appreciation for the work we were doing together, or perhaps in his world of barter economics it was simply the honorable thing to do: giant tomatoes and zucchini from a communal garden that he helped cultivate…Ball jars of honey from one of the bee hives that he managed…bars of soap that he said were made from goat’s milk. One day as we were walking out the door after a session he said, “C’mon man, I want to show you something,” and he led the way around the corner of the building and there was an old green Schwinn five-speed bike of a type I hadn’t seen in years, with the chrome fenders, two-tone seat and matching plastic handle grips that I remembered from childhood.

“People throwin’ out the craziest things these days,” he said. “Found some tires, fixed the gears, good as new. Here, get on it.” I awkwardly threw a leg over the frame. He’d evidently sized me up, and the seat had been adjusted to about the right height. I hadn’t ridden in years but I felt a vestigial excitement about being on a bike again. “It’s yours. You going to ride it.” It was more of a statement than a question. So when the weather or my schedule allowed, and to the surprise of my wife and most of my co-workers, I started riding the bike to work – about five miles one way and then another mile or so two days a week from my office to the Literacy Council building. The terrain was relatively flat but I rode slowly at first, stopping along the way for rest and if the day was particularly warm I’d arrive at work soaking wet. Over the next few months my stamina improved and my speed and enjoyment increased and by the end of summer I could see a physical transformation that was confirmed in the approving looks of those around me. “Hey man, check this out.” It was fall and at the end of one of our last scheduled sessions together. Joe pulled a plastic garbage bag out of his backpack, unwrapped it and inside in baggies were what appeared to be six or seven frozen fillets of fish. “Here.” Joe handed me a folded piece of paper. I unfolded it. I recognized Joe’s simple schoolboy handwriting. I read the heading: Southern Fried Catfish. Joe’s Delectable Secret Recipe.

Joe’s deep, booming laugh drew a few loud ‘shooshes’ from the quiet cubicles around us. At the risk of a broken finger or two, I raised my hand for a high five.

He had written out a recipe, cleverly annotated with many of the words and lessons he’d learned over the past weeks. …Dip your mudcat (a synonym for catfish) fillets into the buttermilk, flip once to coat both sides. Now immerse both sides of the fillets in the cornmeal mixture… Gently add the fillets to the hot oil and fry until golden brown. Shouldn’t take more than about 5 to 6 minutes (I know how impatient you get. Just chill!). Enough time to get the stereo going. (Yes, it’s a sentence fragment. Just making sure you’re reading along.) …Recommended music to accompany dinner and enhance the mood: Al Green, Marvin Gaye or The Spinners (Old school, I know. Trust me, your girl will dig them.) …Serve with the appropriate accompaniments. Buttermilk coleslaw and hushpuppies are a requisite. (Like that word? Thought you might.) …Pour a fine wine. My girl’s personal favorite is the Carl Rossi rosé. (Don’t worry, at $20 a gallon it’s considered a remarkably good value.) Light candles let the evening commence. (A run-on sentence? At this point in the evening, it won’t matter!) At our next session, we both played it coy. I handed out a typical worksheet. “So, let’s identify the word that best completes the sentence…” He punched me in the arm, a bone-jarring blow that he’d meant as a friendly tap. “Man, you are a piece of work! Don’t keep me hanging. Did Joe’s secret recipe work its magic or did it work its magic?” I felt my face redden and I could tell by the knowing look on his face that he’d guessed that his secret recipe had indeed worked. I had followed it to the letter, even resisting the urge to replace the Carl Rossi with a good bottle of Sancerre. That evening Anne and I laughed like we hadn’t in months, shared stories, and reminisced about our children. “Who needs Paris?” my wife had whispered in my ear as we’d slow-danced, predictably, to Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together. Yes, the long-awaited rains had finally returned to our parched land. At dinner the night before I was scheduled to meet with Joe for the last time I glanced over at Anne. “You’ll be happy to know tomorrow’s my last session with Joe.” She looked at me with alarm. “Do you think that’s a good idea? I mean, that goat soap he gives you is great for the skin, and the tomatoes are to die for.” “And the killer catfish?” I asked. She laughed. “Especially the killer catfish. Jack, really, he’s been so good for us. You’d be a fool to let Joe go.” “As Joe would say in his usual diplomatic way, ‘Damn, counselor, for a well-educated man you ain’t that bright.’ I’ll talk to him tomorrow.” The next day, at the end of our last session, as I uncharacteristically struggled to find the words Joe said, “I know man, you – I mean we -- still have a lot to learn. I get it. I’m willing to keep going, if you are.” “Thank you Joe,” I said, relieved. “I’d like that.” He grinned. “I got something for you to start our next session off right.” He pulled out a crudely fashioned cardboard sign from where he’d hidden it alongside the desk.

We called it the Crawford place. Nobody knows if a Crawford ever lived there: been abandoned that long. My parents never said much about the house – though I know they went there, too. I heard their friends call them a “Crawford couple.” To do that, you have to kiss your girl by the light of a full moon under the hole in the roof. Back then, it might have been on the second floor, but by our time the hole in the roof was matched by a hole

through the second-floor joists. The first floor – probably a parlor, don’t know for sure – was partly rotted and let you stare down into a dank hole. If you were chicken enough to have a flashlight, you could make out a clayfloor basement. If you were a guy, you had to have the balls to go there near midnight, brave the dark and the ghost stories, and kiss your girl under that full moon. As a girl, you really didn’t have a claim on your boyfriend if you didn’t go there with him ‘round midnight and let him kiss you with the full moon shining through rafters and joists. Don’t know how that started: just always been that way. Now that I’m a parent, I understand why our folks made a point of not remembering that part of their high-school years. The cops just sort of left the Crawford place alone, you know. Nothing bad ever seemed to happen there, so they only patrolled it when they didn’t have anything better to do. Usually they had plenty better to do.

[photography-notable] “Frosted Leaves” {By Karen Majkrzak I am a retired director of non-profit organizations, living in Madison and Sister Bay, WI. In my ‘Renewment,’ I discovered a love of photography and focus on the beauty of nature in all seasons.


Jeanine and I went there on an August night. Neither of us had looked up the moon in the almanac, like some kids did. We figured if we were close, it counted anyway. And sometimes a full moon meant a crowd. With that floor the way it was, we wanted to be the only ones standing on it. There were no other cars parked off Sugarbush Road, which was a good sign. We slipped up the rutted drive with our lights off, parked ‘er and headed toward the steps. The moon was bright behind some surly clouds, putting us in patches of light and half-dark. The house looked – sinister. Like there was something in the air. I had scouted it on darker nights, and there hadn’t been this – hard to describe. I don’t want to say dread, but Jeanine must have felt it, too. Her hand was sweaty in mine. I could hear her breathe, a short, choppy sort of breath. The only other time I’d heard that was when her sister Jolene had threatened to squeal to their Mom about Jeanine’s diaphragm. You have to walk across a front yard tangled with vines and downed limbs. Even if you follow the path, it takes a couple of minutes. Neither of us could stop shaking. Don’t know why, but there was this honor-sort-of-thing to keep. You know, you can’t just run away from the front yard of the Crawford place. Somehow, everybody will know by the end of the week. I pushed the last swath of brush out of the way. The front steps were ten feet ahead. It’s five steps up, and a two-stepper over a crisscross of porch boards to the door that used to be there. Whatever breathing problem Jeanine had, it must have been catching: I was chopping my breath in and out like a ratchet. The clouds slid by and the moon lit us like a torch. Just before we crossed the threshold, she squeezed my hand. “Okay, that’s far enough. We can go now.” I turned and kissed her. We stepped back across the crisscross porch, wound wordlessly through the branches, and drove away. III. Good place good house nobody. Nobody here he had thought. Make stuff more stuff make good stuff good house he had decided. He had parked the Cavalier off of Hart’s Trace behind a stand of dogwood and lugged the tank and satchel up the gully and into the back of the house. He had scored a bottle of cold pills. That clinic had a sample-closet and nobody watching. He had found an auto-parts store that hadn’t learned to keep the starter fluid under lock and key. He could almost smell the sweet odor of freshly-made meth. It had gotten dark, and he had forgotten to bring a flashlight. His hands knew the job, though. Yes this here, yes this in there, yes we squeeze and sizzzle and wait for Mary to have a Little Lamb he chanted to himself. It took too long. He was hurtin.’ He needed, needed bad. It was time for fire. He reached for the satchel, but it had slipped out of sight. It was very dark. Here boy here boy here boy he droned. The cloth found his hand. He groped. No match-

es. Then the moon brightened, and he saw the matches on the floor. He got up to get them. There was a noise. Then another noise and another. Here someone here coming here he knew. He smiled. William Won’t Tell he mouthed silently. In the light he could see the satchel. He pulled William Won’t Tell out. Loved the cool heavy feel of the iron in his palm. William Won’t Tell, William Won’t Tell he whispered. There were steps in dry grass. There were steps on stairs. There were steps on loose boards. William Won’t Tell. Make blood make bone make hair fly make food for flies. The noise stopped. A board creaked twice. The footsteps moved away. He waited. Steps went away. A car started. Gravel. Going away. Silence. Silence for a long time. He let William-Won’t Tell softly down to the floor. He found his matches. He went back to his rig. He really needed. IV. We drove back to the Waffle House and held our hands together overhead, the time-honored gesture of the Crawford Kiss. We shared a giant cherry Coke and a basket of fries. The crowd thinned. We had made our mark. I drove Jeanine home. “That counts, doesn’t it? I mean, we kissed, it was a full moon, we were there, just not inside. Doesn’t that count?” “Of course it does,” I agreed. “We didn’t run away. We were maybe ten feet from – uh, ground zero or whatever you want to call it. Sure, it counts.” Jeanine smiled. “Good. Long as we’re on the same page with this. Tell the truth, I’m just as glad. I’m glad you said we could go.” I snorted. “Wasn’t me. You’re the one who was asking.” “Bull SHIT! It was you who said ‘we can go now.’” “Was not. I said nothing at all. You’re the one who was asking to go.” “Pull this car over!” I sighed, ready for the usual exercise. I pulled over halfway down the 300 block of Maple. I put ‘er in park, left the engine running. Jeanine switched on the overhead light. I was already looking her straight-in-her-eyes. “You said ‘enough, we can go now,’ didn’t you?” Her eyes were drilling mine. The usual. “No, I did not. That was you.” I looked her straight and steady. Sure, Jeanine can always tell when I’m lying. She’s damned proud of that, and not afraid to tell the world about it either. But I had nothing to hide. It was the truth. I watched her eyes. I know perfectly damn well when she’s lying, too. I just know enough not to announce it. She was too busy studying me to be making anything up. I could tell she wasn’t trying to cover he tracks. Her gaze wavered. “You didn’t say anything?” “Nothing.” “Neither did I.” And her eyes were as straight and wide-open as mine. I reached up and switched off the overhead. We sat for a moment, listening to the engine idle. “You did hear someone say ‘enough, we can go now.’ Right?” “Right.” “And it wasn’t you.” “It wasn’t me. It wasn’t you?”

9

“It wasn’t me.” We sat for another long moment. “Well, it had to be someone.” I put ‘er back in gear and pulled away. “Was someone trying to spook us? Do you think that – ?” Jeanine groaned. “Ooooh, Jeeez! We get that close, someone pulls a fast one on us, scares us away before we go inside - can you hear it? ‘Got right up to the porch, faked a kiss, ran away without going inside, chicken chicken chickeeennnnn...’ We’ll never live it down.” I shrugged. “Well, if it’s any consolation, we’re sure to know who was behind it in just a couple of days.”

V. The next day, we slid into the booth at the Waffle House. Bernie greeted us with ”Heeeyyy! If it isn’t the latest Crawford couple!” I tried not to wince. Jeanine squeezed my hand with her little finger in that just-let-me-do-thetalking way. “And the last. There has to be something special about that, don’t you think?” Alice smiled – but there were no sharp edges in her smile. Nothing saying she was going to lever the truth out of us if it killed her. Just an isn’tthat-something smile like when your brother wins a ribbon at the track meet. Bernie and Alice waited for us to respond. Finally, Jeanine spoke. At exactly the moment Alice did. “The last?” landed right on “You didn’t hear?” “Crawford place burned down to the ground last night,” Bernie said. “County fire got called out about 2 A.M. Somebody driving by saw the flames through the trees. By the time they got there, it was totally gone. Musta been a few hours after you guys were there. Right? It was still standing when you were there?” We nodded.

VI. When the fire investigators did get there, they found a body in the ruins. Young adult male, age uncertain. Some time later a car was noticed behind a stand of dogwood off Hart’s Trace: a beat-up Cavalier with drug paraphernalia in the trunk. Wasn’t too hard to put two and two together, trace things back to a drifter from two states away who got unlucky on a moonlit night. Jeanine and I never heard anything about someone trying to scare us away from the Crawford place. Nobody ever disputed our Crawford kiss. We enjoyed a little notoriety as the last Crawford couple – once it was settled in everyone’s minds that we weren’t arsonists to boot. You know how the talk goes. Still, it’s a little unsettling to take a walk on a moonlit night when clouds are sliding across the moon. Funny how much more we talk on those nights; and how we look straight at each other as we speak, as though we need to know for sure where the words are coming from. Peter Sherrill’s poems have appeared in a variety of state and national publications, but not recently. He’s been occupied with airplanes, grandchildren, house projects and all the usual distractions. He’s a past president of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets.

The Photographer Perhaps it was the way the air lifted the black neck feathers that made her frame that first crow, dashed against the curb, and later transpose him digitally to a china bowl where his back nested against the rim and his feet curled upwards.

Or maybe the desire to compose the decomposing. But soon she thought it was not authentic to shoot and run. No, she must muster courage to pick up the dead thing, bring it home to her studio, arrange it—whatever she found—so many cardinals flying into reflected sky, breaking their necks, and the peacock who had pounded his beak into his brain attacking himself in a glass door. Yes, she wore plastic gloves, but sometimes running back and forth to the camera, she began to forget or inched the hummingbird a little to the left with her little finger.

After her first show, a series of birds and fruit, people began to bring her animals they found, children on the way home from school would pick up a mouse that had wriggled free from an owl and ask if she didn’t want it, and how could she say no. The next-door neighbor brought his parakeet whom he had found on his back that morning, its mouth open, its little black tongue. Sparrows and robins, the victims of so many windows. And sometimes the beautiful rare bird, the oriole that had swooped into a windshield, his orange feathers. Surely, he needed a picture, something to comfort him, what was blooming today, the hydrangea, the tulip, so that her pictures began to look like the still lifes she had seen, the arrangement of the living, but there too – as she had begun to notice was often true in the masters – the not living, the living in death, her vampire art she sometimes called it, the brace of rabbits, the road-kill. And the animals seemed to be growing in size, pet dogs, could she arrange the Great Dane on a dish, move the horse onto a table. Sometimes she thought of Caravaggio’s Jesus, the great stallion in stirrups. And still people brought more bodies. At first she was touched, so many people now noticing the dead instead of ignoring them, happy that she was the person that could frame the odds and ends of life, the strange phantasies. But then she began to realize that some simply wanted her to get the corpses out

of the way, never mind that art might be a way of making the real vanish by making it beautiful. So she began to refuse saying I am getting old, there are so many, I have no room in my yard for another bird, you must find your own place to bury your grief. Lois Marie Harrod’s 13th and 14th poetry collections, Fragments from the Biography of Nemesis (Cherry Grove Press) and the chapbook How Marlene Mae Longs for Truth (Dancing Girl Press) appeared in 2013.

Readers. Writers. Dreamers. Believers. There’s a home for us all: Write On, Door County

www.writeondoorcounty.org Everyone has a story to tell.

1-Kittens The boy, Calvin, was handsomer than his sister. His hair was dark and his pale eyes were hooded by long, straight lashes that made him seem to be peering at his object of interest with special intensity. He would grow into a brutal man whose beauty remained undiminished even after his charm faded, which happened early. But as yet he was a boy of twelve and small for his age. He stared out of the big kitchen window toward the street. “Where are the kittens?” asked his sister, finding their box next to the stove empty. “She must have moved them again.” The mother cat strode past in the hallway, making a short murmuring sound in her throat. “She’s looking for them,” the girl said. “That’s the sound she makes when she’s looking for them.” “Maybe she forgot where she put them.” “Very funny.” The girl, Min, downed the rest of her Diet Coke and went into her bedroom. At her dressing table, a gift from her mother for her fourteenth birthday, she fingered an assortment

of creams and makeups and applied a pale pink lip gloss, almost white, that she had admired in a music video. In a little while, she would walk down to the playground to meet Josh. Her mother worked two jobs in the interest of keeping their house – a shabby rancher, and on this busy road, which had made it a bargain – and paid the children little attention. Min didn’t mind. Calvin did. He stole beer from the supermarket, lifting single bottles from a six-pack and shoving them under his jacket, waiting to be caught. Once a manager cornered him at the end of the refrigerated aisle, took in his small stature, his pale gaze, and let him off with a lecture. The cat was patrolling the hallway, back and forth, her murmurs growing ever more frantic. There were three kittens, one black, the other two gray tabbies. There had been four to begin with, but Calvin had stepped on one and crushed it. “Who let it out of its box?” Min demanded. “It was an accident. I didn’t mean to.” Calvin sounded sly at first but then broke down and wept piteously. Their mother wasn’t home. Min, allergic to cats, had to admire them from a

distance, but she wept, too. She took Calvin in her arms, patted his back. Calvin’s wish was to get even, never mind for what. At the playground Josh would be waiting. There was an overgrown tangle of junipers on a hill behind the tennis courts. You could make a nest on the ground underneath and no one would see you. Min’s wish was to climb into someone else’s chest – someone male – and snuggle there. She uncovered the lip gloss and put on another coat. Outside her window, the landscape was dull brown, bare trees, dusty light, wind sending a piece of newspaper into an airborne dance and whipping up the edges of a black garbage bag someone had dropped in the middle of the road. There was always trash. The traffic came in spurts, ebbing and flowing with the change of the light three blocks away. If it got much colder, Josh wouldn’t show. “I’m going,” she called to Calvin and went out the front door. In the street the wind shifted and the black garbage bag bumped and jiggled as if its contents had a mind of their own. She should go get it, stuff it into their own trash. The neighborhood was going down, Josh said.

THE HAL PRIZE 2015  17 Four Colors of 14 Karat Gold & Sterling Silver

Open Daily 10 - 5 The bag sashayed into the center of the road, restless with the wind. Not even half full. Who would put so little trash into such a big bag and dump it into the street? As soon as she asked, she knew. Heart pounding, she swallowed hard and stepped into the road to get it. A wave of traffic bore down and forced her back onto the curb. There was a crunch, or else in the whir of motors she imagined it. When the cars had passed, the bag was flat and silent, motionless with the vacuum of small, broken lives. She wasn’t going to look. The boy stared out from the big kitchen window, an odd, mirthless grin on his face. She had the first inkling then that what it would come down to – what it would always come down to – was loving too much in the wrong places. All her life whatever mattered to her, even the loyalty of her own children, would be taken from her by beautiful, brutal men. Just an inkling. A gust of wind. She headed on toward the playground. Brushed a fist across her eyes to wipe away the tears, careful not to smear the lip gloss. Clutched her jacket to her chest but refused to shiver. She would do whatever Josh asked. 2 - The Coffee Caper The idea came to him while he was getting coffee at the convenience store. He didn’t drink coffee but had seen how it was done. He chose a 16-ounce cup from the stack of different sizes and poured from a fresh pot of regular. Pleased at the steadiness of his hands, he reached for one of the cartons of milk in the insulated section of the coffee bar, added a little to his cup, stirred. His plan grew and freshened as he worked. His heart beat faster. The place was empty except for the clerk at the cash register. He rejected the stack of domed tops and took one of the flat white ones, which he set atop the drink loosely but neatly, so no one could tell it wasn’t secure. It was winter, probably twenty degrees outside. He pulled his scarf up so it hid most of his too-pretty face. The clerk looked bored, a middle-aged woman wearing a knit cap against the cold. “Help you?” “Just this.” She rang up the sale. The register drawer slid open. In a single deft move-

ment he jerked the cup, splashed the coffee in her face, grabbed the bills, and was gone. What he remembered was her scream – high and astonished, then blackened with pain. Later on the news they’d say she had second-degree burns. It could have been worse. All day he revisited the scream. He went over the events of the morning until he wore the edge off of them, wore them down to a nub. Not his best crime. He pushed back four years to the sight of a half-full garbage bag in the middle of the street, his breath caught in his chest, the three kittens he’d placed in the bag mewing and confused in the darkness – and then the wave of cars, the bag and its contents flattened under their wheels, the litter rendered forever silent while the mother cat inside the house still wandered from room to room, making that odd sound, mrrr, mrrr, mrrr, calling them to her side. He recalled his sister, the only witness, realizing what had happened after it was too late. The look on her face. Her silence. His abiding pleasure. Next time, he’d choose a store with hotter coffee. A younger, prettier clerk.

Twilight Golf Daily

I’m a South Carolina fiction writer whose first love has always been the short story, so am particularly pleased to have this opportunity to submit. My stories have been in journals and magazines ranging from Shenandoah and Ascent to Seventeen and Good Housekeeping; been collected in a book that won the Willa Cather Fiction Prize; and back in 2011 were in a collection that was a finalist for the Flannery O’Connor Award in short fiction. I also write novels. One of them, Safe Passage was made into a film starring Susan Sarandon, and my most recent novel, The Art of Saying Goodbye, (William Morrow, 2011) was an “Okra Pick” from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA), and later was nominated for the SIBA Book Award. More information is on my website, www.ellynbache.com.

The Red Shoes {By Ronnie Hess

The heat hit Ron and me right away, the way it usually did in Fort Lauderdale, like a steam room or a conservatory filled with tropical plants, the smell of wood and moist earth. We slid into the rental car and drove north to my mother’s apartment in Boca Raton. I tuned the radio to a Spanish language station and pumped up the volume. My sister Sally had arrived a few days earlier, giving Léone, my mother’s aide, time off. We would do the usual things – go to our favorite Cuban restaurant for dinner. We would swim in the pool, drink cool drinks, go to the nature preserve overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Or to Loxahatchee, the wildlife refuge that is part of the Everglades, across the highway from the cemetery and my father’s grave. My mother hugged us when we rang the doorbell. Everything seemed as before. The dark brown velveteen convertible sofa from New York that didn’t really work in a Florida condominium where the color palette is pastels; the heavy brown maple furniture; my father’s old mahogany desk next to the windows. In the middle of the living

room, my mother’s prized grand piano, and a small television set. On the dining room table, covered with a blue floral cloth, piles of junk mail for me to look through and to help my mother throw out. She would rip each piece of unwanted correspondence in half, as if for added emphasis, as if it hadn’t fallen into the trash by accident. Perhaps it was a system for the elderly afraid of forgetfulness, of losing their wits. Like turning medicine bottles upside down after each dose. She did that, too. There was the usual list of things for Ron to fix – a light over the piano, the living room fan. He loved being useful and relished the tasks. We headed out for what would be the first of daily visits to the grocery store and shopping mall. Our days took on their old familiarity, rushing by. Ron and I slept on the living room sofa, Sally having moved to a hotel a few minutes away. I envied her the distance. I would wake early in the morning to the sound of newspapers being delivered to the apartment complex. “Flop, flop, flop.” I could hear the sound of the highway’s traffic a mile away, before other noises intruded, the sprinkler system turning on; the next door neighbor wheeling his squeaky cart to the laundry room; someone starting a car. I would make myself a cup of Cuban coffee, no cream, no sugar, turn on a small lamp, and try to solve the crossword puzzle. Then, my mother would wake, slide the hall door open, the signal that it was

time for everyone to get up. Ron would pick Sally up and buy bagels at the deli around the corner, then toast them under the broiler. I would supervise my mother’s medications – for high cholesterol and high blood pressure – and make her standard breakfast of two slices of brown bread with butter and her own, homemade orange or grapefruit marmalade. We would run the errands and my mother would practice the piano. After lunch, and my mother’s daily shot of vodka and water, she would nap and we would have some time to ourselves. Did I leave for the airport early, while my mother was still in bed, still waking up? Or was that another trip? “So soon,” she cried. “Now?” I kissed her goodbye. “I’ll call you when we get home.” Her cheek was warm, ample, soft. A mother’s touch, the smell of her scalp. I tiptoed out of the room. As a child I wanted so much to be touched. To climb into bed with my mother and wrap my right index finger around her hair, curling it. I sang to myself and to her. “Ninga-ninga-ninga.” She called my child’s habit “ninging,” and she hated it. Those climbing-into-bed-with-her moments – perhaps other children have them, too, but I can only guess that mine sprang from my feeling my mother’s physical but also emotional absence keenly. As a teenager, it took me a long time to forgive her for not being around enough, for not being like other mothers – staying at home, there when you walked in the door after school. I knew she needed to have a life of her own, not just that of wife and mother. For her, that meant not only teaching, but also getting a bachelor’s degree in psychology and eventually a master’s in teaching English as a second language. It meant playing the piano for an hour daily and reading

books, especially in French, even if she had to carve out an hour for herself in the morning before the rest of us were up. Touch – it seemed so problematic in our family: my mother who touched too little, my father who touched too much. It was not in a sexual way, but with so much affection that I pulled away. I knew him as a loving parent but he was given to extreme mood swings – how he shook chairs, turned red in the face, was easily wounded. Or he would be ebullient, extroverted, and in his happiness not afraid to wrap my sister and me in powerful hugs. He taught us German games he had played as a child. In one, you would put your index and third fingers out and he would hit them with his; then you would respond, until someone, hands red and throbbing, would give in. Or it was about the mäuschen, wie gehts ins häuschen, a mouse looking for ham in tickly places. He would run his fingers, slowly at first, up our arms, getting faster as he closed in on our underarms, until we screamed. Four months after my visit to Florida, my mother died. Over the weekend, her legs had begun to swell and Léone had propped her feet up on pillows. On Monday, Léone called the doctor’s office trying to set up an appointment. After leaving messages with the receptionist several times, even after being put on hold for 40 minutes, she phoned me at my office and asked me if I could intercede, as if I could throw my weight around and come up with better results because I was family, or didn’t speak English with an accent. I called, too, but got similar treatment. “Do you want to talk to your mother,” Léone asked me somewhere during the afternoon. “No,” I said, feeling put upon and drained. “Yes,” I said, reconsidering. Perhaps a thought flashed across my brain, “And what if this were the last time?” “How are you Mum?” I asked. “Rotten,” she replied tersely. She rarely complained, even about her glaucoma, which made her eyes itchy and blurry, difficult to play the piano. “Music is my salvation,” she often said, and not being able to practice could just as well have been a physical blow. “Do you have a headache,” I asked, trying to figure out what was happening, whether I could rule out a stroke. “Do you have any chest pain?” She answered no to both questions. “Are you in any kind of pain?” No again. I could only suggest that she might have to go to the emergency room, but not to worry. The doctor’s office had scheduled an appointment for the next afternoon but in the evening my mother passed out twice. “Call 911,” I told Léone. I should have realized that she was failing, the day she asked me to come

to a party she was organizing for her Spanish conversation group. I told her it was difficult for me to get away so soon, that I had to put in time at the office, and that Sally, Ron, and I would be coming down to Florida later in the month. If my mother thought that her days were numbered, she never admitted as much. She was above revealing that she was sick and beyond pleading. Only once, in the last several months, did she suggest we begin to have a conversation about her life coming to a close. But she had been so vibrant, so full of life, so energetic in her insistence that we all, in her words, “keep going, keep going.” The phrase was her mantra, and I was so far away and afraid, so eager to sustain her and to ignore the inevitable. “You’re not there yet, Mum,” I had said. Sometime during the year she had giggled during one of our talks by phone, “I do so love you,” and I had chuckled back, “I love you, too.” I was grateful for the words because ours had been a hard-fought mother-daughter friendship. She had been remote in my childhood and I had always been convinced she loved my sister more than me. When my father had died and my mother had begun spending several weeks each summer in Wisconsin with Ron and me, she confided that, with my father gone, she hadn’t been sure there was anything to live for, but then had changed her mind. We would go for walks together and she would stop suddenly, as she had when I was young, to identify an insect or a wildflower. “Isn’t that the most beautiful tree,” she would say or, “Have you seen such a marvelous cloud?” Teaching how to live in the moment, how to see. The Friday she became ill, she had rehearsed with a flutist friend, playing one of the three B’s – Beethoven, Bach or Brahms, she couldn’t remember which. When I called to review the day with her she was scarcely able to complete a phrase, let alone a sentence. “Wonderful,” was all she could muster, “wonderful.” That I didn’t see her inexpressiveness as a sign she was sick was not surprising. There were days when she was particularly articulate and other times when she stuttered clumsily, almost unable to speak. It was excruciating, even maddening when her intelligence was so cruelly thwarted, and we were both left to playing a guessing game about what she meant. I had discussed her condition the year before with her doctor, nurses, and a social worker, wondering variously if it was a lack of intellectual stimulation or, during the summer, the sultry Florida weather, her medications, her nightly shot of Vodka, or dementia. Finally, my sister and I decided to drop it, to just let her be. I tracked my mother down in the emergency room and spoke to the nurse on duty. My mother was talking

a blue streak, apparently charming the medical staff. I knew things were serious, but I felt reassured; she was being looked after and would be all right. I booked a flight to Fort Lauderdale for the next morning and packed stories to read to her in the hospital. At midnight, her doctor called me to tell me there had been a catastrophic incident. I didn’t know what he meant but, when he didn’t explain, I assumed it was her fainting and I proceeded to fault his office for their lack of follow-through rather than to ask him for details. “Your office never returned our phone calls,” I yelled, furious, into the phone. It never crossed my mind to ask him what he was doing in the emergency room so late at night. I figured she was his patient and doctors did that. Thoughts ran through my mind about how she had always put her trust in him although I had never liked him. They had talked about music when she visited him in his office. She told me he was good for her. I went to bed not knowing that somewhere between having a CAT scan and being wheeled back to the ER my mother had suffered a heart attack and her heart had stopped beating. The ER staff had succeeded in resuscitating her but it had taken too long and she was unresponsive. I was able to put some of this together the next morning during a call to the hospital as I changed planes in Memphis and spoke to the attending physician. I was only vaguely aware of travelers milling about the gate area and whether they noticed a life and death drama being played out over a phone. It took hours to get permission to disconnect my mother from life-support and then almost a day for her heart to stop again. During the vigil, Sally, Léone, and I stood around her hospital bed singing songs to her, caressing her hands and feet, stroking her hair, kissing her cheek. She smiled when we touched her, but we had no illusions about her condition or that she might miraculously recover. We watched as hospital staff took out the breathing tubes and she gagged, watched the machines register her pulse and heart rate, nodded as the nurses told us they had never seen someone in her condition hold on so long. And then everything stopped. Léone pulled the sheet over her body, making sure it was perfectly smooth. We scattered the ashes between Boca Raton and Delray Beach, across from Loxahatchee, at my father’s grave. We made sure nobody else was looking, since scattering “remains” was not allowed. We carried the ashes to Fire Island, where we had spent summers growing up, throwing the thin, gray powder into the air, the sea breeze carrying it away. We made sure nobody else was looking when we were

at the ocean, since scattering ashes along the beach, too, was not allowed. In the months after my mother’s death, our trips to Florida were a vague series of days spent scrubbing and cleaning out her apartment, making trips to local charities to give away her things. Her piano was taken apart, sold to a dealer in Fort Lauderdale who promised as much as he could that it would not go to a dive or a honky-tonk where the keys might be pounded upon, broken like a wild horse or a dog. At the very last, there remained her red piano shoes, the ones with a slight heel good for pedaling. No singing Judy Garland on the Yellow Brick Road. No dancing ballerina Moira Shearer throwing herself on the train tracks. My mother had left the shoes at the piano. Above the keyboard, there were folders of classical sheet music yellowed, brittle; her reading glasses; and a container of talcum powder for her perspiring feet. I see her sitting there on the piano bench, light filtering through the blue curtains, the neighbor walking by the front door trailing his laundry cart filled with sheets, old pants and stained shirts, my mother playing a Scarlatti sonata or perhaps a Chopin étude. I took the red shoes to the dumpster. The brutality of it, the naturalness of it staggers me.

[photography-notable] “Boots and Reflections” {By David Bueschel

[Judge’s Comments “There is a rhythm to this prose that propels the story itself. The descriptions are evocative even— or especially—when conveying discomfort and claustrophobia. The details of dealing with the decline and death of a family member are shared through a blend of reflection and brute practicality. In other words, the way it tends to go.”

Being formally trained in the physical sciences, I am drawn to structures and natural forms that create geometric shapes. From this canvas, I develop the character of the scene with the interplay of light, shadow, atmosphere, mood, and detail that ultimately causes one to pause and ponder.

{By bruce mitchell

“Cummins” I started working at Cummins Missouri Diesel at age twelve.

I was picked up every morning by Dean, one of dad’s St. Louis mechanics, a Marine veteran of Pacific jungles now relegated to driving his boss’s son to work. With my lunch box in hand, my heart would expand the moment I saw Dean’s 1951 Ford Custom Victoria float through the horizon, cream top on a green-bullet body running on invisible wheels behind lowrider fender skirts and a grill thrusting out two chrome breasts deep set in circles of silver, a pirate ship’s figurehead cutting through the sea fogs of my imagination. Every morning at 7:15, when I opened that heavy door, slid my lunch box into the front seat, Dean would inquire, “So kid, did you get any poontang last night?” Lucky Strike aslant, Marine tattoo on his left biceps, black pompadour slicked back, he was really asking, “So kid, I am a tough bastard from beaches of burning flesh you will never, never know, but do you really think you will ever grow up into anything resembling a man?” Flushed with ignorance and doubt about these very questions, I would mutter “naw” and stare out the window. As “grease monkey,” my work began in the boiler room, cleaning oil and grease from disemboweled diesel engines. The steam shot from a long, gray snake of hose tipped with a slanting nozzle of copper pipe, with a shutoff valve in the midsection to control the white laser of heat. Every morning, piles of diesel parts lay waiting from the night shift: oil pans, cylinders, rocker arms, crankshafts, pistons, injectors, engine blocks, all to be cleaned and stacked on the other side of the bleak room. I loved this job, almost invisible within my steam cloud,

cutting through time’s grime, rendering the used and greasy into miracles of shiny potential. Of all the parts, the crankshafts were my favorite, their stainless steel shafts and convoluted ellipsoids emerging radiant with power, mystery, and grace. The Cummins’ mechanics, like Dean, were mostly veterans of the Pacific “theater,”’ in their mid to late thirties, heavy smokers, drinkers, swearers, and universal chasers of “poontang.” In my soft suburban existence, these men did not exist, yet after many summers, they began to breathe in me, their profane language, scary edginess, stolid loyalty, fearless defiance (especially when cornered), and gallows humor. Dean, for example, became profanely eloquent almost every evening at 5:35, when we entered the intersection at Delmar and Skinker and were cut off by the 201 bus rolling its stop. Dean’s expletives were pure, graphic, unconditional, and violent. The bus driver and his openmouthed passengers would sink down from this raging fusillade of insult, but still, everyday, without fail, the bus continued to roll its stop. One morning Dean picked me up with a 2”X20” board roped across the grill of his dear Victoria. No comment was made to me except to get another ride home. The next morning, no explanation was offered, but the board was gone and the lovely chrome breasts crushed. At lunch, sprawled in front of the garage, the mechanics began to tease Dean about his obsession with the bus. There were a few, “Don’t mess with Dean” laughs and that was all. Later I found out from the oldest of the mechanics that Dean had in fact rammed the bus and driven it sideways across the intersection. He had even had an engine block lowered into his trunk for traction. After that outrageous act, I could never view existence quite the same. Everything, anything could be challenged and

upended. The potential for chaos became a dangerous, grease-covered reality lying face up on a creeper sliding silently beneath an idling truck. In my teens, the men began to take me out drinking after work. Dad never said anything about this to me except to be sure to “report to the mines in the morning.” Having left home at fourteen, worked his way through the Montana School of Mines by mining copper at night and bare-fist fighting on the weekends, dad was not into coddling. Make your mistakes and pay the piper. He told the men, “Treat the little bastard like any other snot nose.” They did just that, trusting his words. When one of the best mechanics lost an arm in a car accident, dad went to the hospital and told him that he had a job in the Parts Department for as long as he wanted it. Every day, seeing that laughing, one-armed man pulling parts, I inhaled father along with the diesel fumes. So did the men. In one of my after-work beer sessions, the mechanics related how they first became unionized and then went to father with their union demands. With heads shaking, they told me that dad told the entire shop, all shifts: “Gentlemen, burn it down” and walked out. A strike vote was then taken, and defeated after the first “nay” doomed the walk out, the vote with one arm. After college, I began to work as a salesman tor Diesel Accessories and Engineering Company, a tiny manufacturer’s warehouse that I inherited from father. We (one parts guy, a secretary, and one other salesman) had to stock a great deal of merchandise to get the ‘”warehouse” prices from our manufacturers: Donaldson Air Cleaner, Rockford Clutch, Precision Hose and Fitting. I traveled a great deal, cold calling on mostly construction, trucking, mining, and steel companies in the St. Louis, Southern Illinois and Chicago territories. In this time, I married the great love of my life and moved to Chicago to expand the Chicago market. Road life became my not-at-home-life, one I hated, but endured with the ultimate goal of working for Cummins Missouri in St. Louis. After three years of generic motels, deadend appointments, naive business errors, I began to diminish, to grind myself down into something small and hard, paying the piper without the dance. One week I was invited to attend a Cummins Diesel of Illinois picnic (an honor as the only non-employee). Standing with guys from the Parts Department around a keg, I was on familiar ground with men I had grown up with in dad’s garage. Standing there, laughing and drinking, I felt a gentle

tug on my sleeve and turned to look down on a towheaded kid who asked it I would pitch in the baseball game. I said sure, if I could bring my beer. Most of the guys at Cummins Illinois were Catholic, so there were a lot of kids, all ages. I tried to divide them “evenly,” from five-year-olds to teens, girls, boys, even a couple of dogs for fun. Still to this day, I do not know why or how this happened. On the mound, I started pitching 12” to both teams, razing, hazing, inveigling, howling, moaning, hooting, disappearing into the pitching and the kids. At some point, I looked up and all the adults had surrounded the field, over sixty people, just watching. At the end of the game, I returned to the keg and resumed drinking with the parts’ guys, but then the president of Cummins Illinois joined us (whom I knew from one casual encounter). The men were all quietly deferential. No crude jokes. With imperious assurance, the president poured himself a draft and turned to me and said, “Bruce, if you don’t teach, you’re crazy.” All the men were silent, then nodded their heads, and that was that, Dean, the one-armed man, all my fathers spoke in that one nodding moment before the afternoon moved on and left me in its hiatus, idling, before the instant turned on its own ellipsis and became a stainless steel crankshaft in a 1951 Ford Custom Victoria pushing a bus across an intersection into a future with thousands of kids, miracles of shiny potential, emerging from a white-hot cloud, radiant with power, mystery, and grace.

[photography-notable] “Dick, Minneapolis 2014” {By Steven Lang My photography was included in the Soap Factory show, “Americana,” this past year. As a writer, I’ve had one short story published in the Milkweed Editions anthology, Fiction on a Stick. I was a Loft Mentor Series Award winner last year at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.

Bruce Mitchell grew up outside of St. Louis, Missouri. He worked as a grease monkey in his father’s garage, a fish cleaner in Canada, and a brick maker in France. He taught English at Evanston Township High School for 32 years, has been married for fifty years, and presently works at the Prairie Moon Restaurant in Evanston, IL.

[Judge’s Comments “There is a roughness (even a crudeness) to the voice of this piece that lends it great credibility to those of us raised around factories and physical labor. We can feel ourselves riding in the 1951 Ford Custom Victoria hung with Lucky Strike smoke, we can feel the fatalistic sentiment of men returned from war to punch a clock. And there is great metaphorical power in the imagery of steam blasting away at the internal combustion grime all in the name of a fresh start.”

Consider the Brush {By Mary Jane LaVigne

[nonfiction-third]

Consider the bristle, meant to poke and prod, to loosen plaque from teeth, or generate a spark, to comb your shedding mutt, or scrape last summer’s chicken from the barbeque grill. Be it horsehair, nylon, or wire, solo a bristle is nothing. Yet, arrayed with like-minded filaments, it transforms itself into that most democratic of instruments - the brush. George Shaw was a brush man. He started over sixty years ago as the Chicago area manufacturer’s rep for S.A. Felton & Son Company, specializing in “hand brushes and machine brushes for every industry.” He sold steel wheel brushes to Crescent Dental Manufacturing, and cylinder brushes to Hamilton Glass. In 1967 he started his own company, Brush Supply Company of Glen Ellyn. He supported a family, bought a nice house, and indulged his wife. At home in the rec room after school, the kids assembled custom brushes. He came up with an idea for a soft mitt to burnish the finish of stainless steel sinks. The innovation paid for the children’s college education. It was a family business, top to bottom. George Shaw worked at it until this year, when he died at age eighty-four. We’re scavenging in the brush company’s storage space. It’s a narrow room in the basement of a non-descript office block just off of Roosevelt Road. Outside, above the entranceway, a For Lease banner flaps in the wind of Interstate 355. The building directory lists a few one-man law firms and a couple of CPAs. It is Saturday afternoon. No one else is here but Allen and me. Now that George is gone, the Shaw family has decided that changes are needed if the brush company is to survive. Cleaning out the storage area is the first step. Going through a closet is often a good way to start over, but what do you do with the stuff? George Shaw’s middle daughter, Kathryn is our friend. She has invited my partner Allen to see if there are any brushes he can use for his sculptures.

Allen makes figures from stuff people want to be rid of, chipped-Teflon omelet pans, the innards of un-tunable pianos. He earns a living as a union electrician. He makes art, as he puts it, to make a life. I can see him deep in the back, opening packages with the glee of a pregnant woman at a baby shower, plotting to turn toilet brushes into flowers or buffers into bunny ears. After he makes his selections I bring the things out to the hall, threading through the jumble of six decades of business. The long, windowless storage room is awash with the flotsam of office life: an out-of-date printer shipwrecked on an upper shelf, a steel desk heaped with office supplies, a fully-decorated artificial Christmas tree poking above its carton. There are barrels, boxes, packages, stacks and shelves of brushes; strip and block brushes, and a black spiral that unwinds like a Slinky when it’s freed from its wrapping. I’m carrying out a taper of tines bobbing at the end of a chimney sweep set and speculating on its potential as a tail for some gigantic creature. I’ve stepped across the small, loose-leaf binder several times before I stoop to pick it up. It lies open on the linoleum. The notebook fits in my palm. The yellow pages flake away from the holes that bind them. The spine has a metal window plate, behind which a neatly typed tag reads Chicago in capital letters. George Shaw’s business card is taped to the first page. Below the caramelized cellophane, in neat blue ink is printed, “$1000 reward if found.” I turn the brittle leaves. It was July 24th in 1945 when Mr. Shaw wrote his first sale to Package Ad and Sealer Company. It had been only a few weeks since he’d traded in his Navy uniform for a new suit and trousers. He would have phoned ahead to Mr. Frank Wutzke, (Edgewater 0811), before dropping by their Loflin Street plant. Sash, ink, string, finger; words share the description column with inscrutable measurements, 4 Dia.X 3 5/8 Plain hole 39.15 doz. What can we make of this volume once so valuable to Mr. Shaw? It is left-over from a time when companies did not shelter in acronyms, but boldly proclaimed who owned them and what they made; National Biscuit Company, Dearborn Industrial Supply, Bodine’s Electric. It’s an artifact from an era before photocopies, when records were kept on paper, and if nobody answered the phone, nobody left a message. We talk of the economy in monolithic terms,

durable goods and job growth, productivity. The notebook reminds me that the velvet nap of enterprise is made of businesses: large, small, new, old, service, and industrial. The summer I was eight, I made-up a game called Little Town. It involved draping my dad’s army blanket over the picnic table in our backyard. You’d crawl under, and pretend you were in your store along an imaginary main street. Flip up the green wool cover, you were open for business. One bench was the beauty shop, the other a grocery. When we could snitch a few cookies, we had a bakery on top of the table. The grocery store was three rinsed-out milk cartons and an empty saltine cracker box. Because my mom didn’t like us sneaking her bobby pins, the beautician only did pretend-hair. I got to be the banker - or the beauty shop lady – who got to chat while she combed. I mostly opted for banker. Pinecones were money. There was a big spruce in front of the house next door to my childhood home. The branches were low and over-hung the front stoop. The house, a single-story stucco in a block of two-story colonials, was owned by Mr. Spiegel, who was kind of crabby because he worked nights. Deep in his tree branches were layers of perfect cones. In idle hours I made piles of the best. Soon I had so much pretend money no one wanted to play Little Town with me. This got me thinking about money supply at an early age. George Shaw thought about brushes. He was proud of his work. Kathryn remembers feeling embarrassed when a friend asked if her father was a door-to-door Fuller Brush man. But she followed his example and with her husband, started a business. They publish greeting cards. She’s as positive a person as you would imagine such a profession would demand. I’ve worked for her. She’s a nice boss. It’s a good place to work. I especially liked walking through the back room in the summer time where her kids and their friends played music a little loud as they assembled boxes of holiday cards. The last few years have been discouraging for the card company. Squeezed between customer demands and the pressures of being creative on cue, they’ve wondered how to continue. They once shipped to gift stores, stationary and book sellers, long-time clients who have closed up shop. Now

they sell to chains, where solo buyers call the shots. Looking through George Shaw’s old customer book makes me aware of what has changed forever. It’s humbling to consider how various our domestic production once was, how full of hardware, machines and products. Do we still make stainless steel sinks in Chicago, or shoes, or electrical components, or for that matter brushes? I traded inter-bank currency options, Japanese Yen and British Pounds. Options are a form of derivatives; financial instruments derived from the price of an underlying market. It’s designed to seem too complex to understand. It isn’t. Buying an option is like a back-up date to the prom, something to rely on if nothing better comes along. Futures, swaps, collateralized debt obligations, untangle the terms of derivatives and you’ll arrive at the same pecuniary helix; buy low, sell high. This may be a value, based on a value, of a relative value, abstract as a fairy-tale wish. Such ephemeral finance now dwarfs the world of real things. Experts estimate that these mostly unregulated contracts now amount to twenty times world GDP – 1.2 quadrillion – that’s 1,000 times a trillion plus 20% more. You can call them instruments. Say they’re tools for risk transfer, as if they were a wrench or a whiskbroom. Their value is ultimately as arbitrary as the pinecones in my imaginary world. Mr. Spiegel once caught me under his tree, gathering conifer cash to play my game of Little Town. He came out on his shadowed step, in his undershirt, and started yelling at me “Mary Jane! If you don’t let my pine cone’s alone…” Probably he needed his sleep

before the night shift, and I was making noise. But in my neighborhood men didn’t come out on their stoops in their undershirts to yell at little girls. In my mind, this sacrifice justified my accumulation of resin-dripping wealth. I’d taken the risk in pursuit of capital. Perhaps this incident destined me for a career in investment banking. Probably it doomed me to an indifferent pursuit of the really big bucks. So much of what’s for sale is just an empty package. What is your stash worth once all the real cookies are gone, and your friends don’t want to play? I’ve rarely earned my living by doing anything real. I’ve written essays and local histories, taught, raised kids, organized rallies, folded laundry, sat on boards of directors, produced cable-access documentaries, helped homeless kids do puzzles, provided last minute costumes for Christmas plays and campaign events. To be honest though, any true service I have rendered the world has not contributed materially to my income. I have a modest stack of money, which I tend cautiously. I started the pile in the mid 1980s, when I traded derivatives for a regional bank. My humble avarice has sufficed. I haven’t needed a real job to keep me afloat. I guess I’ve come to idolize people who make real stuff, like greeting cards, or deliveries, those who make the lights go on, who shingle my roof, or sweep my chimney. It’s tempting to see America as a tapestry: warp and weft, over and under, workers, owners, and salvage at the edge. I think the economy is a brush, and each enterprise a bristle – the stand-up part that sweeps us ahead.

into the elevator while I hold the opendoor button. He drives the truck right up onto the sidewalk. We load quickly. Against the side of the office building the For Lease sign beats a hollow applause. We go back down to close the room and glance over the stuff a last time. It seems as full as when we began. I feel sad for what may never be used, for what will unavoidably be tossed away. I take the customer record for Kathryn. It was worth $1000 to her dad - back when a “grand” meant something. Allen turns off the light and locks the door. End Water-Stone Review and The Sun Magazine have published Mary Jane LaVigne’s stories. She was selected for the Loft Mentor Program and as a finalist for the Judith Kitchen Prize. She teaches writing in White Bear Lake and helps her husband with the House of Balls in Minneapolis.

[Judge’s Comments “In a piece that moves between past and present we learn not only about the vanishing fiber of the American free enterprise system (if not the fiber, certainly the closeness of the weave) but the character of a man based on the industrious mess he left behind. The author also manages to add autobiography in a way that complements—rather than diverts—the story.”

“My Father’s Eyes”

FREE THE MILWAUKEE LION! 9922 Water St. #7F • Ephraim, Behind Leroy’s

{By Karen Poremski

My father’s right eye glints as he looks at me, flashing a perfect circle in silvery white.

Open Daily Bakery Featuring Sandwich Shop Coffee Gifts 920-847-2632 View our menu online at www.danishmill.com

We’re sitting in his bright living room, visiting—me, my sister, our spouses, our kids, my step-mother. Dad has had surgery recently to try to correct his cataracts. Surgery on the left eye worked well, but the right eye still needs more work, he says. He may need to go back to wearing glasses and laments, “I’ll have to put in drops for the rest of my life.” I have his eyes. I first saw this as an adult, discovering a photograph of my Dad in his younger years, before he grew a beard. Same long face, high forehead, the Poremski nose; same blue eyes and terrible vision, plus astigmatism, glasses since childhood. Our eyes aren’t shaped right for seeing. We’re both legally blind. The doctor has asked if there’s any history of glaucoma in the family, my step-mother says, but we don’t know of any. I wonder if my Dad’s eyes will fail him eventually. The look in his eye has softened of late. A couple years ago he was in a car accident, and everything changed. He walked away from that accident, but the impact from the airbag affected his hearing and equilibrium. He is unsteady on his feet now, this man who was still jogging into his 60s; back then (10 years ago) he encouraged me to train so that we could run the Bay to Breakers one more time. He is thin now, so thin. He was always on the trim side, but now his breastbone sticks out, and unlike all the other men his age, he has no belly over his waistband despite the fact that he enjoys a few beers on the weekend. He looks frail and fragile, like he might tip over or break. I put a hand behind him, just in case, when his grandchildren hug him with enthusiasm. The look in his eye now scares me: almost vacant, or as if he’s elsewhere.

He is not addled, no; he’s still sharp, now and then cracking the wiseass jokes he’s famous for. He grew up in a family where teasing was rampant, where – even as an adult – he was called “Barnyard” (instead of Bernard) by his favorite uncle. But on this visit he kept losing the train of the conversation. It seemed that most of the time, he couldn’t hear. He looked from face to face, searching and watching each speaker as the conversation bounced around the room. He watched and waited, catching the gist of what was happening from time to time, laughed. My Dad has possibly the world’s largest, most pronounced crow’s feet when he laughs and smiles. They go all the way back to his hairline. We saw his crow’s feet on this visit, but more often, I saw him looking at us from underneath his eyebrows, as if asking a question, looking like he wasn’t sure. And I noticed that he looked a bit bruised under his eyes, as if he’d been beaten up a couple weeks ago. Maybe it was from the surgery. It made me wonder if he’d ever been beaten up, ever gotten in fights. I know that he got in some sort of trouble as a teenager and that school really wasn’t his thing until after he’d been in the army for a while (miraculously between Korea and Vietnam). In college, he became the “egghead” we knew, listening to classical music and going to museums, making a life for himself that was so different from that of his parents. My mom did the same, escaping working-class roots to be an intellectual, become a teacher; I imagine this is why they ended up together, what drew them to get married, have kids of their own. It only held them together for a few years, but long enough to have my sister and me. When we were nine and twelve, my sister and I went on our last just-thethree-of-us summer trip with my Dad, before he moved in with his girlfriend. He crammed the three of us and our stuff and camping equipment into his Ford Pinto and drove a thousand miles to central Florida, Disneyworld. The green canvas tent was packed in an oblong box that took up three-quarters of the back seat; my sister was almost too big to squeeze into the space left for her. We stayed at KOA campgrounds

and learn about their significance in art history. I had always liked paintings, especially representational ones, but didn’t really know much about art. (That is my sister’s forte.) Sometimes art makes me anxious, makes me feel dumb, like I’m in a place where I don’t speak the language. I can’t draw worth a damn. Everything was fine until we approached Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and something happened. This image that I’d seen a million times before – on posters, ties, coffee cups, mouse pads, the most ridiculously prosaic things – was utterly different. It was gut-wrenching. I felt as if it kicked me in the stomach. I was confused and distressed, my chest hurt. I started to cry, but kept silent because I didn’t want anyone to notice in that crowded place. What the hell was wrong with me? There was something about the texture – the thickness of the paints, the brushstrokes – and the true colors of the work that unmade me. I took my earphones off for a moment, trying to slow my breath, and hoped my Dad wouldn’t see me. My Dad has always loved Van Gogh and the Impressionists. He used to drag us to see the Cone collection at the Baltimore Museum of Art every once in a while. But this was the first time I felt moved – disturbed, shaken – by something my Dad showed me. It wasn’t just a painting; it was raw emotion, intensity, passion – all the things he worked so hard to not show. He laughs easily, but is otherwise calm, not given to emotional display. His mantra: don’t get excited. Keep it under control. But he’s a human being, he had to have felt these things. By all accounts, the divorce was a train wreck of well-founded jealousy, bitterness, threats. Maybe the art is where he kept his feelings, where he put them in storage. Maybe the paintings spoke things for him when he became silent. In a few months from now, my Dad and step-mother might be coming to the Midwest for a visit. It’s not his grandkids coaxing him, but an exhibit of works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I almost don’t care what gets him here as long as we can see him. I can’t help but think of his unsteady walk last visit, his shrinking body. There are new diagnoses since then. I want so desperately for this visit to happen, and soon, for this new chance to see what his eyes see. I think about him wearing my little-girl glasses, and the shining circle in his eyes now.

full of families in campers and tents— mostly bigger families with Moms. The KOAs all had pools, so my sister and I went swimming every day and kept trying to convince Dad we didn’t need to bathe because we’d been in the pool and that we didn’t have to brush our teeth if we chewed Dentyne. We marveled at the oranges growing on the trees, right there in the campground. There was magic even before we got to Disneyworld. On the way down, we’d stopped by a beach—I don’t remember which one, but I remember going swimming. As my Dad waded into the water, a large wave came up suddenly, knocking off his glasses. They were gone, just gone, beyond retrieval though he did look for them for a few minutes. He couldn’t see. He definitely couldn’t drive. He borrowed mine – thick like his, almost his prescription – until he could get to an eye doctor to order an emergency pair. We waited a couple days for them to arrive, and the whole time he wore a stretched-out pair of little girl glasses. I saw everything as fuzzy shapes. When he got his replacement pair, mine had to be adjusted to fit back onto my head. He must have told my Mom. I can’t remember it, but I’m sure we called her from a pay phone during that trip. I wonder if she was thankful for my bad eyes then, saving all three of us, or if she cursed my Dad for losing his glasses in the first place. He should have known better than to trust the ocean. I wonder if they shouted. But no, we’re not a shouting family, or at least that’s not how I remember it. Or rather, Mom shouts; Dad goes icy and silent. He probably told her: don’t get excited; everything’s fine. The Disneyworld trip was an anomaly. Mostly we went to places of historical import with Dad, and museums. He liked to show us things that enhanced our education. He had been a teacher for a short while, when I was a baby. With a mortgage and a marriage and a kid, he had decided to get out of teaching – as he put it, for a “paying job,” one where he wouldn’t have to go back to factory work over the summers to make ends meet. But he was always a teacher with us, showing us the world through eyes that wanted to learn it all, everything. When we outgrew the Baltimore zoo, he’d take us to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, Fort Ticonderoga, Williamsburg. So many things to see, to learn. When I was in my 20s, my Dad took me to see an exhibit of masterpieces traveling around the country from the Metropolitan Museum of New York – one of his favorite places. I figured the exhibit would be a place to buy some time with my Dad, increasingly rare and precious when I became an adult. It was just the two of us; I think my sister was living in England at the time. He got us the headsets so that we’d have a guided tour of the pieces

• At 1 pm on Thursday, July 30, 2015, the world’s largest wooden grandfather clock began keeping time again in its new location in downtown Kewaunee. The grandfather clock, originally built in 1976 by Svoboda Industries of Kewaunee, was relocated to city property at the corner of Milwaukee Street and Miller Street in 2014. The clock has been extensively renovated and a pavilion has been built at the base of the clock, allowing for farmers markets and other community gatherings. The project was accomplished with nearly $30,000 in money and material donations, with the Kewaunee Public Works Department spearheading the renovation and construction project and providing much of the labor. Kewaunee Mayor John Blaha, Jr., recognizes the value of this community project. “The community was able to come together to save a city landmark, find a great location to showcase the world’s largest wooden grandfather clock near the heart of our downtown, and integrate this project with the head of the Ahnapee State Trail, Kewaunee Harbor Park, and the $4.2 million harbor improvements coming in the next year. This is only one of many great things going on in Kewaunee right now, and in the next few years Kewaunee will only get better,” Blaha said. • The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has received reports from law enforcement officials in southern Wisconsin regarding transient asphalt contractors canvassing the region looking for work. All Wisconsin residents should be on the lookout for these transient contractors. The workers show up unannounced, claiming to have leftover asphalt from a prior job and offering to blacktop a driveway for a cheap price. After a price is agreed upon and a payment is made by cash or check, the crew begins work. The job is quickly and poorly done and the consumer is overcharged. In some cases, only a base coat is applied and the promised top coat is skipped, despite the consumer being charged for it. If a crew stops by your home offering an immediate resurfacing job, ask them to leave and contact local law enforcement. If you wish to have your driveway properly resurfaced, contact local, trusted contractors and gather multiple bids. Never pay the full price of a project upfront. If you have been victimized by one of these door-todoor teams, contact local law enforcement and report the crime to DATCP by filing a complaint

• The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reached an agreement with a manufacturer to voluntarily phase-out the use of trichloroethylene (TCE) in an aerosol arts and crafts spray fixative product as part of EPA’s ongoing efforts to reduce the public’s exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. After identifying health risks associated with a number of TCE uses in its June 2014 Work Plan Chemical Risk Assessment conducted under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA worked with the manufacturers of TCE on possible voluntary efforts to reduce exposure. The PLZ Aeroscience Corporation, of Addison, Ill., has committed to cease manufacturing its aerosol spray fixative product containing TCE by Sept. 1, 2015. This product is used by artists, picture framers, graphic designers and printers to provide a water-repellent and protective finish. It is the only TCE-containing spray fixative product on the market still used in arts and crafts. • The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reports perch action is starting to pick up in Green Bay, with reports of more perch being caught all the way from Marinette south on the west shore through lower Green Bay and up along the Door Peninsula. Smallmouth bass fishing also continues to be good all along the peninsula, and up through Death’s Door. Salmon anglers have also been doing well off Door County the past week. The Kewaunee Door County Salmon Tournament last weekend had Ellison Bay, Gills Rock, Rowleys Bay and Baileys Harbor boat ramps seeing heavy use, with Chinook the most consistently reported catch.

COMING UP • I-43 and other major highways in eastern Wisconsin will be even busier than usual when golf fans travel to Whistling Straits near Kohler for the 2015 PGA Championship from Aug. 10 to 16. To prepare drivers for the increase in traffic during the PGA Championship, the Wisconsin State Patrol will team up with the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office for intensified traffic safety efforts on I-43. The State Patrol will use aircraft and other traffic enforcement equipment during these traffic details. The goal is to increase voluntary compliance with all traffic laws. “With the heavy traffic during the PGA Championship, commuters and others who regularly drive I-43 may encounter slowed vehicles or possibly some traffic back-ups in places where they normally don’t occur. To prepare drivers for the upcoming changes in traffic conditions, our enforcement efforts will focus on deterring speeding, inattentive driving, and following other vehicles too closely,” says Capt. Anthony Burrell, commander of the State Patrol’s Northeast Region. Travelers can check online for real-time traffic information, including travel times, lane closures and incidents, at 511wi.gov or by calling 511 on a phone. • Students and parents of the Sturgeon Bay High School incoming freshman class are invited to an orientation session on Aug. 25 at 7 pm. The event will be held in the Auditorium at 1230 Michigan St. The orientation will begin with a presentation about Sturgeon Bay High School and information from the 2015-16 Student/Parent Handbook. Freshman advisers will be introduced, and students and their families will be free to tour the building. For questions, contact the high school office at 746.2800 between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm, Monday through Thursday.

The Wandering Chinook ‘Headhunter’ report confirms salmon live like gypsies by JIM LUNDSTROM

O

n July 10, 2014, an angler fishing out of Baileys Harbor caught a 32-inch, 13.2-pound male Chinook salmon that had been stocked in May 2012 in Lake Huron from the Cheboygan River in northeastern Michigan. That may not mean anything to the angler, but it’s important information for Great Lakes fishery biologists, who were able to tell where the fish originated thanks to the four-year-old Great Lakes Mass Marking Project. In 2011, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service teamed up with state fishery managers to

Wisconsin DNR image. begin tagging all Chinook salmon stocked in Lake Michigan and the U.S. waters of Lake Huron. A tiny coded wire tag is inserted into the snouts of the salmon before they leave the fishery. Since the wire tags are too small to be recognized by anglers, the small adipose fin is removed from each salmon’s back so anglers know when they have caught a tagged fish. Once a tagged fish has been identified, the second part of the program known as “headhunters” kicks in. U.S. Fish & Wildlife and DNR staff man larger ports to collect data on catches, and drop-off locations have been set up at other locations, such as Baileys Harbor. But the anglers in Gills Rock went an extra step by collecting and freezing Chinook heads for pickup by the DNR. “We target most of our headhunter efforts at the bigger ports,” said DNR fisheries biologist Nick Legler. “We send our staff out to bigger ports because they can get potentially bigger samples. So for northeastern Wisconsin we spend most of our efforts sampling Two Rivers, Manitowoc, Kewaunee, Algoma and Sturgeon Bay. As a result, some of the smaller ports we don’t get to. So in addition to our efforts, we have this volunteer return program. The anglers up in Gills Rock really did an awesome job for us. They collected a ton of samples and got us some really good information on their fishery. For those samples particularly, what we were interested in seeing, where did those stocked fish come from?” That was an important question to answer for the biologists and the anglers of Gills Rock, who lobbied the DNR to begin stocking Chinook in Gills Rock again, which the DNR began to do in the spring of 2014 with 30,000 young Chinook deposited into net pens before being released. Another 30,000 were stocked this spring. “There were some thoughts by some of the anglers up there that they were catching Northern Door-stocked fish,” Legler said. “What the results showed us

Preserving the Night Sky Newport pursues international dark-sky designation by JACKSON PARR

D

oor Property Owners (DPO) sent a letter to Newport State Park, expressing support to State Park Superintendent Michelle Hefty in pursuing dark-sky designation from the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA). The designation, granted to a land, “possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and a nocturnal environment,” would be the only designated location in the state and the third in the Midwest. “So many of our visitors from Chicago or Milwaukee, one of the first things they say is, ‘Oh my goodness there’s so many stars.’ That’s a really special quality that we have and it’s something that we would love to see protected,” said Nancy Fisher, DPO secretary. IDA began in 2001 and has been identifying places around the world that are significant in preserving dark skies. Designation promotes eco-tourism while expressing the importance of dark skies as a valuable resource in need of proactive protection. Light pollution is caused by artificial light and can affect more than just the visibility of the stars. By introducing excessive artificial light, the body’s natural circadian rhythm can be disrupted. Circadian rhythm naturally tells the body when to wake up and when to go to sleep. A similar affect is produced in animals in nature. “There’s a huge percentage of animals that hunt at night,” said Hefty. “Most of the predators do most of their hunting at night so it affects that whole balance.” In 2007, the World Health Organization listed disruption to the circadian rhythm as a probable carcinogen contributing to cancer. In order for Newport State Park to achieve this designation, it would have to prove visibility of sky phenomena as well as an effort to improve outdoor light sources, making them more compliant with standards set by the IDA. “Right now our night readings are in the same category as Big Bend National Park (Texas) and

was that really the anglers up there are similar to what we are seeing elsewhere in the lake. They are catching fish stocked all over the place by all the different states, as well as fish coming from Lake Huron. That’s probably the most important piece of information we were able to get from those fish.” The Gills Rock anglers collected a total of 322 tagged Chinook, most of which were caught from Gills Rock, but a few, such as the Lake Huron-stocked fish mentioned above, were caught elsewhere, such as Baileys Harbor or Washington Island. They were collected from June 24, 2014, through Sept. 13, 2014. Great Lakes Mass Marking Program • 2.95 million Chinook salmon and 6.41 million lake trout were coded-wire tagged in 2014. • In 2014, Fish and Wildlife Service bio-technicians stationed on Lakes Michigan and Huron sampled 42 ports and examined 21,782 salmonines, including 12,447 Chinook salmon and 4,402 lake trout. • More than 46,000 coded-wire tags have been recovered since the inception of the project. • Chinook stocked along the western shore of Lake Michigan contributed the most to the lake-wide open water fishery. Even at eastern ports, fish stocked on the west shore tended to be caught the most.

Death Valley National Park (California), these huge areas of darkness,” said Hefty. “We always thought of ourselves as being the darkest area on the peninsula because we’re five miles from any external light sources.” Additional requirements include four educational seminars annually to promote the value of the night sky. Newport already has dark sky programming such as the Perseid Meteor Shower event in August and seminars about the nightlife of wild animals. The designation also comes at the cusp of change for many of Wisconsin’s state parks. “In the state budget, there was a point made that the state was going to reduce, if not eliminate, some funding for the state parks so the state parks have to scramble to find funding,” said Fisher. “This attracts a whole new group of people, which can only be good. Most of the dark sky locations are in the western part of the country in Texas and California and so to have something in the Midwest is just one more really terrific aspect and Newport would just be phenomenal.” Fisher hopes the dark-sky designation will provide an example to the communities of Door County as they move forward with reconstruction plans. “If we start to see some of these things coming, it would be so great to go to the Town of Liberty Grove and say, ‘How about implementing some of these in the construction?’” said Fisher. Street and building lights can be built to reduce the upward glare of the light they emit. By concentrating most of the light down, where it is intended for anyway, light pollution can be decreased. Fisher has already seen these lighting methods implemented in places like Olde Stone Quarry County Park and the Maple-Oregon Bridge in Sturgeon Bay. Hefty explained that Wildcat Mountain State Park east of La Crosse is also looking at dark-sky designation. She hopes that Newport will set the stage for other Wisconsin parks to pursue the designation, including Rock Island. With all of their application materials compiled, Hefty will have a final meeting with the IDA on Aug. 11 to submit the application. When the IDA Board meets in September to review applications, they will have a two-month review period before recommending the location to the international board. Hefty hopes she will be able to cut the ribbon to their dark sky in December or January of this year.

The tagged Chinook collected in Gills Rock included 29 fish from Illinois (nine percent), 13 fish from Indiana (four percent), 61 fish from Michigan waters of Lake Huron (19 percent), 64 fish from Michigan waters of Lake Michigan (20 percent), and 155 fish from Wisconsin (48 percent). “In the summer, they’re probably following different temperatures and water currents and closely following the bait fish all across the lake,” Legler said. “As we move closer to fall, stocking locations, particularly in Wisconsin, become more important, because those mature fish return to stocking locations to spawn.”

• During the feeding season (April-Aug.), 88.6 percent of Chinook stocked in Lake Huron were recovered in Lake Michigan. Only 0.3 percent of Chinook stocked in Lake Michigan were recovered in Lake Huron during the same time period. • In the open-water fishery (April-July), most Chinook were harvested in a different district than where they were stocked, but during Sept.-Oct., most were harvested in their stocking district.

OUR REPS Gov. Scott Walker At a forum held Aug. 3 featuring 14 of the 17 major Republican candidates, Walker suggested he would support raising the age to qualify for Social Security. Asked about bumping up the age for the federal retirement program, Walker said he did not favor an increase for those already in the program. But for people like him, the 47-year-old governor said, “Yeah, we’re going to have to make some reforms going forward.” Walker didn’t specify what those might be. Under a law passed in 1983, the age to receive full Social Security benefits is 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954. It gradually rises to 67 for those born in 1960 or later. Source: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Representative Reid Ribble Ribble gave his support for H.R. 1994, the VA Accountability Act. “For those who the VA serves well, the care is top-notch. However, I cannot sit by knowing that veterans have slipped through the cracks of a deliberately rigged administrative system, and have suffered serious harm in long waits for the care they deserve. In any private sector business, changes would have been quick and decisive to nip these abuses in the bud. Unfortunately, VA reforms have been limping along, hobbled by a maze of regulations that allow hundreds of people who have knowingly denied care to veterans to continue to sit on the VA payroll at taxpayer expense. The VA Accountability Act gives the VA the tools it needs to finish the reform process that it needs, and I am proud to support it.” H.R. 1994, the VA Accountability Act, would provide the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) increased flexibility in removing VA employees for performance or misconduct; would provide improved protections for whistleblowers including restricting bonus awards for supervisors who retaliate against whistleblowers; and would strengthen accountability and performance measures for VA Senior Executive Service (SES) employees.

The Defend Trade Secrets Act would empower companies to protect their trade secrets in federal court by creating a federal private right-of-action. “The theft of U.S. intellectual property threatens economic growth and American jobs,” said Baldwin. “We must strengthen protections for American businesses and Made in America innovation.

President Barack Obama The Obama administration unveiled a major climate change plan on Aug. 2 aimed at a large reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s coalburning power plants. Obama started selling it to the public at a White House event on Aug. 3. “Today after working with states and cities and power companies, the EPA is setting the first ever nationwide standards to end the limitless dumping of carbon pollution from power plants,” Obama said. The “Clean Power Plan” is the final version of regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency, which Obama called “the biggest most important step we’ve ever taken to combat climate change,” in a video released by the White House on social media. “We’re the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation that can do something about it,” Obama said. Under the plan, the administration will require states to meet specific carbon emission reduction standards, based on their individual energy consumption. The plan also includes an incentive program for states to get a head start on meeting standards on early deployment of renewable energy and low-income energy efficiency. Even before the rule was announced, many states announced plans to fight it, including some vows to take the administration to court over the new rules. Source: CNN

Plan Commission seeks new life for town by JIM LUNDSTROM

I

t appears the Jacksonport Town Board made a wise decision in creating a Plan Commission this year, for its members have made it their mission to make Jacksonport more than a passage for visitors on their way to more robust communities. At its Aug. 4 meeting, the members of the Plan Commission had a healthy discussion on the state of business in Jacksonport, with two longtime businesses for sale and little else happening in the way of growth. “One of the roles the Plan Commission has is serving as kind of the economic development team as well, so some of the things we’re talking about really relate to what can the Plan Commission do to encourage business here,” said Bob Kufrin, chair of the commission. “If the town board doesn’t want to encourage local businesses to stay or for new businesses to grow, it really needs to say that. Otherwise the Plan Commission is thinking that it’s good to have the Jaroshes to be able to sell their business and good for Mike’s [Port Pub] to sell, instead of closing down. If two or three of those shut their doors, there’s potentially a tipping point. We lose another business or two and it’s going to nosedive and – I hate to say this – where it’s going to end up like Forestville, where you drive down the street and see what was a thriving small downtown area that now is mostly closed businesses. I think that would be horrible.” The idea of reinstalling sidewalks that once connected the Jacksonport businesses was brought up. The original sidewalks were installed courtesy of the Jacksonport Women’s Club, but, according to former town board chair and current Plan Commission member Al Birnschein, they were poorly installed right on topsoil and were dug up when they started deteriorating. Tim Bley, the youngest member of the Plan Commission, voiced opposition to sidewalks. “Why would you be opposed to sidewalks?” Kufrin asked. “Maintenance. Liability,” Bley said. “What’s the liability?” Kufrin asked. “Snow in the winter,” Bley said. Kufrin said the town could create an ordinance requiring property owners to clear the snow from the sidewalk. Bley responded that the Village of Egg Harbor enacted such an ordinance, but with so many part-time residents, it isn’t effective. He added that Baileys Harbor has a maintenance staff to clear its sidewalks and Jacksonport has part-time staff. “I don’t see how sidewalks are going to bring us business,” Bley said. Commission member Little Bit LeClair said a path on the grass has been worn down on many properties because people don’t feel safe walking on Hwy. 57. “There is a beaten path from the Town Hall Bakery all the way to JR’s and it’s three-feet wide. Grass is not going to grow there. People don’t feel safe.” Bley suggested that in the scheme of things the town wants to do, sidewalks are a low priority. “The challenge is looking ahead and seeing what’s good for the downtown area,” Kufrin said. “What’s good for those businesses? If you think about it, looking ahead, will the businesses downtown thrive if there is no way to connect them? Businesses do better if you can walk from the next to the next to the next.”

Kufrin said if the town provided that connection, people are not “on the road and they’re not wandering all over someone’s yard.” He added that the town thinks ahead by allocating money to a fund to pay for fire trucks and that it could do the same for sidewalks. “What’s wrong with having the property owner pay for the sidewalk?” Birnshein said. “You could special assess it,” Kufrin said. In the audience Jacksonport resident Marjorie Andrae pointed out that downtown Jacksonport is neither safe nor handicap accessible, a point amplified by commission member LeClair: “There is a constant trail of people from the condos [on the north side] with baby strollers and dogs, family groups of 10 to 15 people, it is hazardous right now. When cars are parked like the other day with Cherry Fest, there is no place to go except trespass on other people’s property.” “This is something the town board should be looking at. Do it and do it right,” Birnschein said. Bley mentioned that another impediment to growth in Jacksonport is the restrictive zoning ordinance that prevents a single-family home to be built on anything less than a 20-acre parcel. “Some of that was poor planning,” Birnschein said. “They didn’t want anything to get bigger.” “We have a younger generation that want to build in Jacksonport, but they can’t afford 20 acres,” Bley said. “I’ve said this from day one. I’d like to get it down to five acres. Five acres is enough land for someone to move around and do what they want. Then some people say, we don’t want subdivisions. These kids don’t want subdivisions. They want woods where they can be away from people. Five acres give you enough room to move around.” “Maybe we need to look at Jacksonport-specific regulations and make a recommendation to the board that some of these no longer make sense,” Kufrin said. He gave the group the assignment of going through the county zoning with Jacksonport restrictions in search of things that are hindering growth. “Come with a recommendation how you would change that, delete it, revert to the county, or something in between,” he said. Kufrin reported that the town board had approved two projects that had been forwarded by the Plan Commission, including an offer from the Jacksonport Women’s Club to plant crabapple trees along the town’s core, from Jorns Road in the south to Logerquist Road to the north. The board also approved the creation of an ad hoc environmental committee to organize some educational/informational sessions on manure spreading. Tim Bley will head the committee, and he said farmer Mark Haberli has agreed to serve on the committee along with citizen Dan Andrae, whose well was one of those that was contaminated last September when a contractor for the Haberlis spread liquid manure over a sinkhole. “Doing something will create a sense of direction and that will be good,” Kufrin said about the ad hoc committee and its charge for educating the community. The commission is also recommending that $12,000 to $15,000 be included in the 2016 town budget for large welcome signs at both ends of town to help give the town an identity. Kufrin also suggested the board add $1,000 to the 2016 budget to update to a more user-friendly website, both for the town clerk to post information and for users to find information. The next meeting of the Jacksonport Plan Commission will be held at 8 am on Sept. 1.

PET TALK By Sally Salopek Q. My ex-wife had a big black cat named Louie who liked to regurgitate in my shoe. I usually wasn’t aware of his surprise for me until I slipped my foot into the shoe. I liked Louie, except for that habit he had of puking in my shoe. Was he trying to tell me something? A. Not a very pleasant surprise to find in your shoe. Maybe he was trying to tell you something, and I am not referring to what he may have thought of your shoe odor. Doing some research it appears cats can and do vomit due to stress factors in their lives. It is possible Louie was trying to let you know he was distressed. A healthy cat can feel stress of environmental disruption and exhibit sickness behaviors as a result. A study was published in the Jan. 1, 2011, issue of the Journal of the American Veterinary Associations (JAVMA). It states stress by itself was enough to make otherwise healthy cats vomit, or have other sickness behaviors such as urinating or defecating outside their box, have reduced activity levels, be lethargic and at times avoid any social interactions. During the study period the cats were stressed by things that all pets have probably gone through at one time or another –

periods of cold temperatures, a change in caregivers and schedules, loud noises, absence of hiding spots or perches and abrupt changes in their diet. These symptoms of illness all disappeared when the cats’ stress levels returned to normal. Indoor enrichment may also have helped Louie overcome his vomiting in your shoes by lessening his stress, if that was the cause. Things like fooddispensing toys, a window perch for watching birds, cat furniture for climbing and scratching or even cardboard boxes or paper bags to play in may have given Louie the outlet he needed for relieving any anxiety he was experiencing. Also regular interactive play sessions could help relieve stress, build confidence, provide mental stimulation and be fun for both owner and kitty. Another possibility is Louie’s instinct was telling him to eject his stomach contents in an area where the vomit would be easier to bury or hide. Hopefully this will give you a bit of insight as to some possibilities as to why Louie was choosing your shoes to regurgitate in.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dog Whistle Not Needed In 1965 President Lyndon Johnson, with his civil rights legislation, alienated the “Southern Democrats,” who were by and large Democrats only because President Lincoln, a Republican, freed the slaves. A Republican prior to the mid 1960s found it hard to be elected a dogcatcher in the South. In 1968 candidate Richard Nixon wooed these alienated Southern Democrats to the Republican party with his “Southern Strategy,” a large plank in the foundation of the Republican Party ever since. Those of us who were around in the 1960s know that these Southern Democrats did all they could to stop any form of integration, integration of schools, of lunch counters, of voting booths, of churches. These were hate groups and the South was the junkyard they swore to protect. These are by and large the same people who wave the Confederate Flag. The Republican Party leaders communicated with these junkyard dogs, former Southern Democrats, using dog whistles. Dog whistles are coded terms that mean “we are with you” to these Southern haters. For 40 years (some, perhaps many) Republican politicians used dog whistles to communicate with their junkyard dogs whose job they perceived was to keep the South pure and white. The Republican Party may

or may not have wanted to keep the South pure and white, but it needed (and still needs) these junkyard dogs to have control of Congress and from time to time control of the White House. Now comes Donald Trump, who does not use dog whistles. He simply says sic ‘em. How dare he use language that you do not have to be a junkyard dog to hear and understand. Jim Riead, Egg Harbor, Wis.

Total Disrespect Sometime in the past two weeks, my mom and dad’s graves at St. Joseph Cemetery were vandalized and articles stolen. I discovered it last evening when I went to visit them. This apparently has happened since the last lawnmowing as the flower planter was lying on the ground long enough to make a brown spot in the grass. If it had been there longer the caretakers would have picked it up and thrown it away. They are very diligent about keeping the grounds neat. There is sentimental value involved so that is why I would like to have the things returned. Two shepherd hooks, wired together to make three hooks, were stolen. The small hook was much shorter than the double hook. I had two solar lanterns secured with wire to the double hook. They were ripped out of the ground that covered the base of them. My mom had purchased the lanterns when she was living and just after my dad died so they have been at that cemetery for at least up to 17 years. The small hook was one that they kept in their yard and my dad would fill a small bird feeder with seed and enjoy watching the birds come to feed. The large double hook with a hummingbird figure on top was also something they purchased together and had other flowers and bird feeders hanging on in their yard. So you see, these are things that both my parents held in their hands when they were living. It is the sentiment that goes with them. When she passed away, I took her solar lantern from her yard and the double shepherds hook and placed it in the center behind their stone and hung both lanterns together. I had a hanging flowerpot on the small hook

which was secured to the double hook with wire. I have pictures which show what the solar lanterns looked like and what the shepherd’s hooks looked like. I am not asking for advice on what to do. What I would attempt to do is raise public awareness that this type of thing is happening. I know I can trot over to Walmart or Target and buy hooks and lanterns and place them back near their grave. It is purely sentiment and the aggravation that someone has been so ballsy as to march into a cemetery and steal from those in eternal slumber that prompts me to write this. I am going through the proper steps to rule out how these items have come to be missing. I have made the calls and asked the appropriate people who are in charge of caretaking at the cemetery. I will be filing a police report just to let them be aware that the theft occurred at the cemetery. What a shame to discover that the final resting place of your loved ones is not respected and safe from those who think they are above all and have the right to vandalize and steal. Thank you for allowing me to vent my frustration about this act of total disrespect. Cheryl Simon Sturgeon Bay, Wis.

Bay Walk I believe we should have a picturesque setting for our bayside. In Door County, where art is a No. 1 attraction, we have an opportunity to create a European dockside with shops and restaurants. Visitors and locals can stroll, browse and buy among flowers and beautiful views. I grew up in South Shore Chicago, a few blocks from Jackson Park Harbor where they had a replica of the Santa Maria left over from the 1933 World’s Fair. As kids we were all over it being Captain Kid or Blackbeard. The buildings could be multipurpose with parking behind. Sounds good to me! Let’s make our waterfront a real place to go. Build it and they will come. Bob Zehme South Holland, Ill. & Egg Harbor, Wis.

Tupa Part of Another Winning Team Acacia Tupa, a 2015 graduate of Southern Door High School and the 2015 Packerland Conference Player of the Year, recently returned from winning the ASA Class A 18U Northern Nationals Tournament in Springfield, MO (July 30 – Aug. 2). Acacia’s travel softball team, Impact Fastpitch, won the championship. This is her third Acacia Tupa Northern National title in four years. Her former travel team, the Jr. Phoenix, won the 2012 16U Northern National title in North Platte, Neb., and 2014 18U title in Watertown, Wis. Along with Acacia, four other members of the former Jr. Phoenix make up the current Impact team based out of New London. Impact lost their first pool play game, 6 to 3, to Kansas City Power ’97 and won eight straight games to remain in the winner’s bracket. They faced KC Power again in the semi-final game and beat them 8 to 7. Acacia went 4 for 4 with a single, two doubles, and 3 RBI triples to push Impact ahead. Acacia had 5 RBIs in the semi-final game. In the championship game, Impact played Lee’s Summit Force 18 Gold from Kansas City, who came through the loser’s bracket. After five innings, the final score was 11 to 3. Acacia went 3 for 3, had 2 singles, a double, 2 RBIs and scored 3 runs to help the Impact take home the championship trophy. Acacia Tupa’s overall stats for the tourney: 4 homeruns, 2 triples, 5 doubles, 7 singles, 14 RBI, 14 runs scored, 3 for 3 on stolen bases, and .621 batting avg.

Destroyers Fall to Patriots

The Pig Steps Up In the aftermath of the storm on Sunday, Aug. 2, thousands of people in Door County were without power.

On Saturday, Aug. 1, the Door County Destroyers had their hands full with the number-one team of the MidStates Football League in the Lincoln-Way Patriots. LW scored early and often as they maintained a 42-20 score late in the third quarter. With a couple of defensive stops and two scoring drives, the Destroyers found themselves down by only eight as they recovered an onside kick and set up their offense in great position to tie the game. With one minute remaining, an interception by the Patriots’ defense deep in their own territory sealed the 4234 victory and improved their record to 5-0.

VISUAL ARTS NOTES The fractal photography works of Gale Ritchey, higher psychic healer artist, will be in a solo exhibit at Mr. Helsinki in Fish Creek. The exhibit runs from Aug. 1 – Sept. 30. Ritchey shares about this latest body of work, titled Altered States of Perception, “Perfecting these high frequencies and synchronicity of vibrations has been amazing.” The exhibit will extend to include additional pieces exhibited at J. Jeffrey Taylor. Ritchey’s unique art form has stood the test of time, since she created her first fractal abstraction at age 12. Creating fractals as abstract paintings has been an integral part of her life work, and photographing the subtleness of nature has been her personal interest. The exhibit is a variety of large formats, and series pieces that hold a mesmerizing infused qi within the affect of color, form and texture. For more information, contact Ritchey at her White Rose Healing Arts Studio in Fish Creek at 920.421.2344 or visit GaleRitchey. com.

Nathan Hatch, and jeweler Regina Imbsweiler. All featured artists will be present at the opening reception and speak about their work at 5 pm. Klug will show a new selection of her distinctive palette knife oil paintings on display. Korth’s thoughtful composition and design evoke an emotional response to her paintings.

Atlanta-based jeweler Regina Imbsweiler brought a new collection to Edgewood for this exhibit. Her overall collection has a contemporary feel, reflecting complex references between materials, colors and textures while achieving her goal of keeping an ancient simplicity for each piece.

Barbara Larsen Barbara Larsen will be the featured poet in the UU Fellowship’s Dickinson Poetry Series on Aug. 12 at 7 pm. Larsen believes in the power and truth of poetry and in the ability to connect with the hearts and minds of readers.

Her mixed media pieces often include graphite and encaustic. The gallery is located at 7901 Hwy 42, and is open daily at 10 am through October.
