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. The addition of Write On, Door County as a collaborator helped to make 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 nationally recognized and published authors and photographers to judge our contests. We significantly broadened our marketing efforts to reach a wider audience, which resulted in submissions from across the state, the region, and the nation. And we streamlined the submission process for both writing and photography by using the Submittable website. 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 2017 Hal Prize – the submission process remains the same and the website is ready to begin accepting your creative efforts (TheHalPrize.com). — Steve Grutzmacher

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.

Hal Prize


HAL PRIZE 201

Process As the Peninsula Pulse’s arts and literature editor, few things are dearer to me than the Hal Prize. This annual issue represents the very best of what our publication is about: creative expression. That creative expression comes in many forms: through poignant or humorous prose, pictures that speak a thousand words, commentary from our exceptional judges, and the way our artistic director puts it all together. Each fall, we invite people of all ages, backgrounds and artistic abilities to submit stories, photographs and poems for a chance to be published in our annual literary issue. While prose and photos find their way to our online submission site, Submittable, until the deadline (this year, May 1), The Hal Prize organizers are exploring ways to enhance and grow the

contest by making the submission process easier and bringing better prizes into the fold. The contest’s continued growth is possible for one reason: we live in a community where artistic and literary resources are abundant. One of those resources, Write On, Door County’s Executive Director Jerod Santek, was instrumental in helping us secure an impressive panel of nationally recognized judges – authors Jerry Apps, Oliver de la Paz and Nicole Helget, and photographer Wing Young Huie. These individuals gave hours of their time to review the finalists selected by our pre-screening committee, make their selections and provide thoughtful commentary on why the chosen prose or photos captured their attention. And long

before that, they carved out time for me to share the journey they each traveled to become the successful authors, poets and photographers they are. It was because of these judges, our incredible sponsors, readers and the hundreds of individuals near and far who shared their creative representations with us that The Hal Prize received a record number of entries this year (356 to be exact). With your support, we hope to continue this trend in the years to come. On behalf of The Hal Prize organizers and the Peninsula Pulse, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has taken part in this year’s contest and to our artistic director, Ryan Miller, for creating this beautiful issue. With that, I welcome you to The Hal Prize 2016! — Alyssa Skiba, Contest Administrator

Oliver de la Paz is the author of four collections of poetry, Names Above Houses, Furious Lullaby (SIU Press 2001, 2007), and Requiem for the Orchard (U. of Akron Press 2010), winner of the Akron Prize for poetry chosen by Martìn Espada, and Post Subject: A Fable (U. of Akron Press 2014). He is the co-editor with Stacey Lynn Brown of A Face to Meet the Faces: An Anthology of Contemporary Persona Poetry (U. of Akron Press 2012). He cochairs the advisory board of Kundiman, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of Asian American Poetry and serves on the Association of Writers and Writing Programs Board. A recipient of a NYFA Fellowship Award and a GAP Grant from Artist Trust, his work has appeared in journals like Virginia Quarterly Review, North American Review, Tin House, Chattahoochee Review, and in anthologies such as Asian American Poetry: The Next Generation. He teaches in the MFA program at Western Washington University and in the Low Residency Rainier Writing Workshops at Pacific Lutheran University.

Nicole Helget is the author of The Summer of Ordinary Ways, The Turtle Catcher, Stillwater, Horse Camp (coauthored), Wonder at the Edge of the World, and the forthcoming Fern’s Grove. She lives on a farm in southern Minnesota with her family.

Jerry Apps, born and raised on a Wisconsin farm, is Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the award-winning author of more than 35 books, many of them on rural history and country life. He is a former publications editor for UW-Extension, an acquisitions editor for the McGraw-Hill Book Company, and editor of a national professional journal. Jerry has won awards for his writing from the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Library Association, American Library Association, Foreword Magazine, Midwest Independent Publishers Association, Robert E. Gard Foundation, The Wisconsin Council for Writers, Upper Midwest Booksellers, and Barnes and Noble Bookstores, among others. In 2010 he received the Distinguished Service Award from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s College of Agricultural and Life Science, was named a Fellow by the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences Arts and Letters in 2012, and was named to the Wisconsin 4-H Hall of Fame in 2014.

For more than 30 years, celebrated photographer Wing Young Huie has captured the complex cultural realities of American society. His work has been shown in international museums – more than half a million people have viewed his traveling exhibit in China – and in Minnesota storefront windows. His most well known works, Lake Street USA and the University Avenue Project, transformed Minneapolis and Saint Paul thoroughfares into six-mile photo galleries reflecting the everyday lives of thousands of their citizens. His projects explore a myriad of social issues, including immigration, race, adoption, urban and rural life, dementia, faith, Lutheranism, gender, homelessness, and youth culture. Though much of his work centers on his homeland of Minnesota, his current series Chinese-ness explores experiences of identity in the United States and the Motherland of China, employing documentary and conceptual conceits, and occasionally a chalkboard. Wing uses photography as a societal mirror and window, seeking to reveal not only what is hidden, but also what is plainly visible and seldom noticed, providing a collective portrait of the “them” who are really “us.” As an extension of his public art installations that create informal communal spaces, in spring 2011 Wing opened The Third Place Gallery. Housed in a building that previously sat empty for 47 years, Wing has turned the space into an urban living room for guest artists, social conversation, karaoke, and ping pong.


HAL PRIZE 2016

Photography

1st “Native American Portrait” by Guntis Lauzums Every year, the Holiday Folk Fair presents ethnic dancers and cultural events at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The Native American presented an opportunity for a nice portrait.

Judge's Comments “I chose ‘Native American Portrait’ as #1 because it jumps out at you while still pulling you in. The eyes of this person are shielded but perhaps the eyes of the animal skin are the true ones. The intricate balance, or collision, of color, line, and cultural symbolism leave the viewer with much to interpret. Perhaps a metaphor for Wisconsin— beneath all cultural layers is a Packers fan.” — Wing Young Huie

2nd “Joy” by David Bueschel As so often in life, one goes looking for something and finds another. A photo of bubbles in front of a city skyline turned into one of a grown up and child that shows us joy, love, laughter, peace, and hope.

Judge's Comments “‘Joy’ is aptly named. Is the boy buoyed by the bubbles or vice versa? Or perhaps the adult is holding it all aloft with joyous blowing. The lines of the buildings, people, tents, clothing all seem to balance on the V formed by the outstretched hand that propels the boy upward, forever.” — Wing Young Huie

We’ve visited Door County for the past 10 years. He was a small boy back then but has now grown to be a 15-year-old 6-footer.

Judge's Comments “Nature, childhood and mythology converge in ‘Josef and Polyphemus Moth’ in a moment of stilled innocence, lifecycle and capture. The blond curls echo the insect’s design as well as the net that caught it. Wikipedia tells us that this particular species has inspired various writers, such as Homer as well as a scene from Lord of the Rings, whispering secrets into Gandalf’s ear.” — Wing Young Huie

Poetry 1st

(Eye) upper branches—the sky above a clearing—wind tilts robin’s nest this way

(Ear) on a ridge legible interrogative curves

(Torso) supine with six knots and a hollow sandpapered skin smooth wood blonde fern grown between two crabapples at rest in the flax-linen grass-covered swale it will carry away when the flood rains come a caraway-crabapple jam: pucker, swell, swallow

/ Julie Gonnering Lein grew up in southeastern Wisconsin visiting her grandparents in Sturgeon Bay. She is the author of the chapbook Glacier, Perfect Tense (dancing girl press & studio), a recipient of the Larry Levis Memorial Poetry Prize, and winner of The Winter Anthology’s 2015 contest.

“I’m intrigued by the fragmentation and fierce image-making in this poem. I particularly love the final stanza’s rich language when the poet writes, ‘at rest in the flax-linen grass-covered swale/ it will carry away when the flood rains come/a caraway-crabapple jam…’ Such rich language!” — Oliver de la Paz

Photography Honorable “Tree, Whitefish Dunes” by Donald Zdenahlik I have lived in Door County for the last 24 years. I moved here from Illinois after working in the printing industry for 30 years. I took up photography as a hobby about 14 years ago. I found this tree one foggy morning while walking through Whitefish Dunes State Park.

Delicate Lesson The small blonde desk in her bedroom, my mother marriage-battered with her pile of textbooks to try to make something of herself mouth her private Calliope between parallel blue lines one time she set aside her books to make paper dolls with her pencil she drew with meticulous precision every detail of face curve of arm angle of foot perfect tiny tabs for the clothes her careful hand gave life to paper cut-out dolls became characters ready to enter a story of my own making when I picked them up they were so very thin the shock delicate in my hands

Poetry

3rd by Paula Schulz

All of it in a blue beyond us Breathe it in that silvered fizz as rib-netted minnows scintillate and wriggling swimming upstream in the bloodstream straight for the heart that beats beats beats constellations through me Oh what bits of light we are! And how the soul that white pocket longs to fill itself

Paula Schulz works as a classroom aide and sits on a board that helps teachers access information on special needs education. She has been involved in ekphrastic projects, nominated for a Pushcart Prize and lives with her husband, Greg, in Slinger, Wisconsin.

Judge's Comments “I love the playfulness of the poem. It is unafraid to use audacious language like ‘Ax-hacked X’s/pinwheeling/ in smooth bourbon turn[s].’ It’s a joyful meditation on the Mobiles of Alexander Calder but also the light within us.” — Oliver de la Paz

Photography Honorable “Snow Fairies on Break” by Mary Ann Rinkleff I spent a long Saturday afternoon snapping photos of these girls as they rehearsed for a holiday ballet performance. This unrehearsed moment came when the instructor called for a break. The dancers immediately stepped out of character and fell into the usual teasing, gossiping and daydreaming so common to girls.

Roller Skating Is Life With black laces tied tight and candy cane striped wheels spinning in a blur of red and white, I take to the rink floor and join the counterclockwise current of bodies in constant motion that go nowhere. Hidden, high above, a DJ spins the soundtrack of our life, and when the lights snap off and the strobes begin their erratic pulses while Vincent Price’s voice haunts us in concert with Michael Jackson, we scream in delight, and the DJ smiles upon his creation.

not foolish enough to believe we could push our lives into reverse, but naïve enough to try pumping the breaks in hopes that time would stand still.

As he introduces intermittent games of chance, contests of skill, and moments of intense adolescent passion, also known as “Couples’ Skate,” I never leave the floor. With well-oiled wheels and perfected playground learned technique, I am as fluid as the currents and tides of time. In that dark, windowless room, with its blaring neon lights and bright, bubblegum 80s pop, we cast furtive glances at the clock; it’s only a three hour session, yet we work in unison, forcing ourselves in counterclockwise motion,

Along the main drag, they’ve been jostled by the plow and buried to their necks, these stoic stand-ins for each taxpayer, each targeted prospect, their heads largely empty, their faces all jaw ready to receive without prejudice: the probable power bill, the unlikely Valentine. One small scarlet flag semaphores hope for whatever scant matters still believe in paper if not pen. Later, their humans are lured from cozy abode to glacial road. Everyone of a certain age is haunted by someone who once promised to write.

Bobbie Lovell is a Pushcart Prize nominee who participates in a workshop group and has given readings in Appleton, Green Bay and Oshkosh. She marvels at Door County’s bluffs and tenacious trees.

On That Night In Late September

For our daughter

We stood in the road for the best view of the sky, that rare phenomenon of sun and earth in one straight line. A total lunar eclipse became a supermoon a blood moon, a burnt and eerie planet so near to us we felt we could touch it. In just an hour or two it would be gone, it would be my birthday, I would enter late middle age, the same hour our daughter’s best friend would succumb to the darkness moving across him, erasing one more element of beauty from this earth whose axis we would be certain must somehow, some way shift to make room for such loss.

Andrea Potos is the author of six poetry collections, including An Ink Like Early Twilight (Salmon Poetry), We Lit the Lamps Ourselves (Salmon Poetry) and Yaya’s Cloth (Iris Press). She lives in Madison.

Also the Acorns, t h e Av o c a d o s I do not recognize the tall trees out front— Live Oaks they’re called (I know this now)— whose leaves from here look shriveled and sharp; whose oblong acorns scared me when my toddler daughter first picked one up and presented her discovery: Look, Mama, Bean!— and I’d swatted the green thing down thinking Poison—Slug—Shelled animal? Something strange inside. Even the acorns are different here. I miss the squat brown nuts beneath the trees of my Midwestern youth, their woody little berets like the rough wool caps my great-grandfather wore as he sat in the sun on his own cement front porch and thought, perhaps, of the flock he’d tended as a boy across the sea. All he’d left behind. I can see him now near that oak, raking leaves on the side lawn: look how it drops leaves like embers, how it asks us to bury ourselves inside its crackling skirt. Julie Gonnering Lein grew up in southeastern Wisconsin visiting her grandparents in Sturgeon Bay. She is the author of the chapbook Glacier, Perfect Tense (dancing girl press & studio), a recipient of the Larry Levis Memorial Poetry Prize, and winner of The Winter Anthology’s 2015 contest.

That was the familiar wonder, the one with robins and cider, the one I still ache for in this new state, where peacocks are declared a public nuisance, where young avocado trees are mown as weeds: We’d just toss them into the dirt, my mother said. We didn’t even plant them. They just grew.

It is for the Uighur noodles, not the Uzbek meats that Zhuldyz says we must go, Zhuldyz, far from her home in Shymkent to the south, Zhuldyz, whose name means star, her eyes radiant as stars. The unfiltered Kazakh beer is served in huge glasses, each with a bendy straw to more easily sip. The Uzbek waiter has no English, but the menu— in Russian and Kazakh— has pictures. Shashlik, he says, pointing at skewers of meat, beshbarmak, laghman, plov. We order haphazardly, the dining room bustling. Eventually, they bring platters of mutton chops, beef, chicken, and horsemeat on skewers, duck breasts on buckwheat, and bowls upon bowls of those delectable Uighur noodles, the noodles Zhuldyz says no one but Uighurs can make, each bowl seemingly one tangled, infolded noodle a mile or so long. They are sumptuous, the Uighur noodles, the texture an uncanny balance of chewy softness, both dense and airy, like earthbound angels— the product of the muscled manipulations of virtuoso noodle makers. their secrets arcane as alchemists’ formulas. As we feast on meats and noodles, sip our Kazakh beer through straws, not many miles to the east, the Uighurs in their homeland overrun by Chinese are sending car bombs into crowded markets, furious at being marginalized in their own land, their language languishing, but here in Kazakhstan it is their noodles that are famous, Uighur noodles, such a bountiful banquet, but evanescent as are all human feasts.

Birds and the Hereafter

by Timothy Walsh

He grew more interested in birds as he grew closer to death— watched from the dining room window, teacup in hand, as sparrows and finches flitted round the feeder, soft as angels— watched the bumptious grackles careening through the yard, clouds of starlings settling in the katsura tree. As his heart began to fail, he felt a growing affinity for feathers— for the great horned owl calling from the cottonwood, the red-tailed hawk circling above the house. As pneumonia wracked his body, starved him of air, he dreamt of flight— flying free through the blue empyrean, oxygen aerating the pores of his body, his air-hunger everlastingly sated. The evening he died, thousands of starlings settled in the silver maples, grackles swooping from the oaks, blue jays and crows calling raspily under a roiling sky.

Timothy Walsh’s poems and short stories have appeared in The North American Review, Arts & Letters, Cutthroat, The Midwest Quarterly, New Millennium Writings and others. His awards include the Grand Prize in the Atlanta Review International Poetry Competition, the Kurt Vonnegut Fiction Prize from North American Review, and the Wisconsin Academy Fiction Prize.

And who can say whether they accompanied his soul into the afterlife? But when they flew off, his spirit was gone from the house.

The Hunt “I feel sick,” I said. “You did just take a rather monumental piss,” Clay said. “One has nothing to do with the other,” I said. “I know,” Clay said. “Half a thermos of coffee has that effect.” “How long have you been hiding behind my tree?” Clay smiled. “Awhile,” he said. “I’d only been in my stand ten or fifteen minutes before I heard you shoot. I figured, ‘what the hell? If he’s got one laying on the field, it’ll be a bugger dragging it over that frozen mess.’ Plus, it’s good practice.” “Practice?” I asked. “You didn’t know I was there.” I shook my head. “Practice?” “Never mind.” Neither of us said anything. “You think we’ve waited long enough?” “I think so,” he said. “No sign of Dad,” I said. “You know him—the patience of Job—and if something’s happening here, he’ll want us to take care of it. Brothers bonding. Manly fortitude.

Pulling ourselves up by our own bootstraps.” We both knew his lines. “Let’s check,” I said. “Lead the way,” Clay replied. We walked to the spot in the field where the deer had been when I shot and studied the earth, searching for a spot of red or a tuft of hair, but against the muted palette of Wisconsin farmland, neither showed itself. “He headed east?” Clay asked. They would be the last words he’d speak for some time. “Yes,” I said moving toward the barbed-wire fence at the edge of the field. The deer had leaped in an elegant parabola, momentarily loosed from gravity, but I’d sensed something off in its stride. Clay motioned with one hand to lower my volume, never looking at me as his eyes swept the ground. I scanned the field as well, but things soon blurred. Clay stopped at the fence, and bending at the waist, looked at the rusted barbs. He

motioned for me to join him. Now crouching, he pointed at the sagging top strand of the fence. Barely visible on the rusted braid was a small, scarlet drop, and a tuft of no more than five or six white hairs. I’d hit my target, but if the sign we’d found were any indicator, I hadn’t hit it well—or I’d made the dreaded “gut shot,” which meant the deer could go and go and go before expiring, leaving scant sign of its path as lack of snow compounded the difficulty of tracking. Clay reached into his duffel and tore off a square of toilet paper to impale on a barb near blood and hair. He handed me the roll and motioned to follow. He stepped over the sagging fence and went on, silently and deliberately moving through the wooded border between field and railroad track. I went with him, ten feet to his left and a step or two behind him, looking, as he did, at the ground littered with leaves, hoping to spot another tuft of hair or drop of blood, but to no avail. Clay, upon reaching the spot where the ground

I nodded, and my brother motioned for me to take the lead. For a moment, I felt a sense of relief and silently thanked anyone eavesdropping on my thoughts. I looked back through the naked branches and caught a glimpse of the last toilet paper marker we’d placed, barely stirring in the breeze some hundred feet back. I breathed deeply and exhaled before stepping down the right branch, which would soon bring us to a creek feeding Christy Brook. I drew from an imagined well of fortitude, re-upping my focus, and where the trail veered away from the meadow, on the moss-covered base of a maple, a patch of frost had encrusted the frilled edges of the moss, and in the middle of that patch was a single red drop. I paused, astonished at my good fortune, and tore a square of toilet paper from the roll. Clay, now standing beside me, also saw the spot and gave me a congratulatory clap on the shoulder. A few feet further down the path was more blood, a larger smear the length of a loaf of bread, and several strides beyond that, another smear against the trunk of a tree. For an instant, I forgot about embarrassment and shame and trepidation. For an instant, I felt I’d done something right. For an instant, I imagined my father’s praise, and energy coursed through me, enough to allow me to find the deer and with my brother’s help, drag it back to the field. For an instant. Then I heard snorting and thrashing. Clay and I moved toward the sound. In a shallow depression ringed by scrub cedars lay the deer. He again took on the ghostly qualities I’d witnessed on the field, but as my eyes took in the sight, my brain processed the scene. He lay on his side, his head rising on his swollen neck, and despite every effort he made to gather his legs beneath him and stand, he couldn’t. He flailed, his breath coming out in short, violent bursts of vapor in the cold air. My shot had clipped his stomach—not a wound that produced much external bleeding, not a wound that killed quickly. It was enough to bring him to the edge of death, to let his own strength and the tragic beauty of his instinct and locomotion hasten his demise. The wound was almost enough, and I’d caused it. As he’d headed toward cover and water, his own movement and the force of gravity pulling on his bowels conspired to open the wound further. He’d probably bedded more than once over the course of his trek, and I’m certain we had—or more accurately, I had, as Clay was a phantom moving along the route—stirred him from those beds and pushed him until, in reaching the depression where he now writhed, nothing could hold. I saw his bowels spilling onto the ground, the milky gray stomach and coiled

intestines speckled by burnt orange flecks of fallen, dried cedar greens. My own stomach lurched, and a gorge rose to burn the back of my throat with the taste of wood smoke. I managed to choke it back, but I couldn’t prevent my heart from dropping when Clay spoke. I couldn’t make out everything he said; it came in snippets, but the longest phrase I recall was clear as a bell, perhaps because it echoed a voice in my own head: “you know what to do.” But while I now know it was my brother’s voice, that day, in that moment, in the wash of white noise filling my brain, I couldn’t distinguish Clay from my father. I froze. Single shot, the voice said. To the neck. The deer’s head swung toward me, and we briefly made eye contact—maybe for a second, maybe for several seconds, but it felt like ages compressed in an instant, as though someone or something were trying to speak with me through my brother or the animal. Whoever or whatever it was, it was broadcasting on an existential frequency I couldn’t locate in my heart. End it, the voice said. I floated outside myself, bearing witness to my actions, or lack of them, watching myself as I tried to will myself to act, to raise the rifle to my shoulder, to align peep and post and swollen neck of the deer, to slip my trembling index finger through the trigger guard and flick the safety to off with my thumb, to squeeze the trigger and mercifully end the life of the handsome creature flailing on the ground, its very self spilling out before me—Walt?—and I felt as though I were being watched, watched not only by some part of myself and by my brother, but also by my father and mother, by Meg and her parents, by Rev. Stubenvoll and Mayor Lambrecht and Thomas Lindow, by every teacher I’d ever had, from wrinkled old Mrs. Melchoir on up to Mr. Grzesch himself—Walt!—by Mark Raddatz and Eilene Ehlers and a toddler I’d never seen, a young girl in a Winnie the Pooh jumper with an inquisitive look in her bright, brown eyes, and they all watched me and willed me to act in some fashion, to walk away from either the task I knew was right or the one I felt was right. I couldn’t do either one. I froze. I stood with my rifle half-raised. I felt a cold bead of sweat trickle down my rib cage, and my feet felt like they were encased in concrete. My hands and arms wanted to move, but something inside me held them in check. I wanted to at least turn my head away, search for sunlight flashing through the cedar boughs, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t move, couldn’t speak, couldn’t give any indicator of hearing or heeding the exhortations hurled at me, real or imagined—but I could see my brother to my right, his expression somewhere between placidness, disgust, and pity as he raised his rifle, took aim, and fired the killing shot.

dropped away in a steep slope higher than either of us were tall, surveyed the slope in longer and longer sweeps until he found it—a smear of blood no larger than a quarter on a brownspeckled yellow birch leaf. I placed another square of toilet paper at the spot on a pencil-thin branch above the leaf and looked back at the first marker. The deer had begun drifting northward—angling toward Spiece Lake lay three-quarters of a mile to our north, and Christy Brook, whose waters moved swiftly enough to fend off frost. Clay and I descended the embankment to the tracks, moving along the imaginary line suggested by the two faint signs my brother had found. We continued our search in that fashion for nearly three hours. I diligently sought any sign of the wounded animal’s path, but with no luck. Always, it was Clay who spotted the pin-prick of blood and I who marked the spot. At times, we might go for a quarter- or half-hour without finding anything, prompting us to return to the last marker and strike a slightly different trajectory than we’d imagined the deer taking; invariably, Clay’s instincts proved correct. We moved carefully, stepping lightly. I feared that I might obliterate whatever scant evidence of passage the deer had left. More than once I was ready to give up entirely, hopelessness outweighing the guilt of imagining the magnificent creature I’d wounded dying somewhere and having to share such a humiliating story with my father, Mr. Grzesch, and Meg. Clay, though, was dogged. His movements over a varied landscape were efficient and silent, whether we moved over unplowed fields or through patches of scrub forest, along the bed of the Chicago Northwestern rails or through the partially frozen lowlands that occasionally gave way beneath my weight but which held for Clay’s lighter tread. I grudgingly came to admire what my brother was doing, to respect that what I was witnessing was as much a gift as his talent on the diamond. I refused to defer to him once, when the deer’s route seemed headed toward the meadow. My brother’s instincts had been the sole reason we’d kept finding signs of the deer; whether I instinctively knew that the animal couldn’t have crossed into the opening of the meadow or I was merely hoping against hope, I wasn’t about to let this journey go there. Clay had reached a fork on the path and had taken his first step down the left branch, which would have, in fifty feet, spilled into the meadow, when I hissed his name in a hoarse whisper. He paused, then pivoted to meet my stare. I shook my head and mouthed no. Clay raised his eyebrows. I again shook my head, more emphatically this time, then motioned toward the right branch. Clay mouthed, are you sure?

Keeping Things Tony had just finished tying his hair back into a ponytail as he turned the corner. He loved opening the coffee shop; the birds had not been drowned out by the sounds of traffic, the sidewalk was empty of all life, and the air had that crisp smell of a new day. Pulling his keys out of his pocket and finally looking up, he was shocked to find he was not alone. Almost to the edge of the curb, a young man sat atop a large bamboo mat facing the coffee shop. He stared at the hands in his lap, which seemed to be kneading a ball of clay, and Tony could see occasional flecks of orange slip through his fingers. The man didn’t look up at Tony when he appeared, and Tony almost apologized, feeling as if he were interrupting something sacred. A rainbow of colored paper sat atop a small wooden step-stool, and Tony realized it was a piece of orange paper the man was molding with his fingers. To the left of his stool sat a mudcolored vase, cracked in many places, chipped in even more; a blue flower on a large green stem poked out of it, and Tony observed its angular form, its conical shape in a five pointed star pattern, and its perfect symmetry. The flower had been created solely from the square sheets of paper; the artist sat in stark contrast to the flower he created. He couldn’t have been more than 20, and everything about him gave off signals that he was a member of a fraternity at the local college. His baseball cap, which he wore backward, was a navy blue; in fact, Tony would have assumed he was a baseball player and from the designer clothes he sported, a well-off baseball player. But, here he sat, at 5:30 in the morning, folding pieces of paper into flowers. Tony’s temporary paralysis left him, and he started walking toward the door. The man looked up, briefly, and with a fluid gesture, grabbed the blue flower and presented it to Tony. “For you,” the young man stated simply in a deep, gravelly voice one would expect from someone with a frame twice his size. Tony, taken aback, took the flower from the young man and reached to his back pocket for his wallet. The man held his hand up and shook his head, looking at the ground as he did. “Oh, thanks,” Tony apologized through is gratitude while unlocking the door to the coffee shop, and the man returned to the orange paper in his lap. The young man came to fold flowers at least two times a week, and Tony was always assured the first flower of the day. At first he threw them away at the end of his shift until he observed the artist make one from

start to finish. The whole process took at least fifteen minutes, with each crease and fold being executed as if his reputation depended on its perfection. At the end, he’d examine his artwork for flaws. If he saw something he didn’t like, the flower would disappear into a black canvass bag he carried with him. Those that passed inspection would end up in his vase. After viewing the meticulous process, Tony couldn’t bring himself to throw any of the flowers away; instead, his apartment grew thick with a paper garden. Sometimes customers would come in with a flower in hand, and Tony would usually make it a point of conversation. One afternoon an elderly woman carrying a pink flower stepped up to the counter. Tony asked her if she was all right after she shook her head, frowning while touching the points of her flower almost as if it were as fragile as its real counterpart. “Why does he do that? Refused to take my money.” “It makes him happy, I guess,” Tony replied while pouring steamed milk into her latte. “I bet he just likes seeing people carrying his flowers down the street.” “Can’t eat off of warm, fuzzy feelings,” she argued with a push of her oversized glasses up her nose. He handed her her latte, gave her a warm smile and sent her on her way. A few mornings later, Tony turned the corner to see the young man throwing papers around, flipping his canvass bag upside down, and spilling its contents onto the concrete. For the first time, the vase was empty. The artist was on all fours like a puppy, and he had his baseball cap upside down on the ground revealing a mop of frazzled unkempt black hair; he shuffled through the spilled contents of his bag, his colored pieces of paper becoming soiled with dirt and smudges. He hadn’t even acknowledged Tony’s presence. Tony surveyed the area. He had thought he had seen the artist’s setup enough times to figure out what was missing. The young man looked up, still on all fours, and blushed at the sight of Tony standing within a few feet. He moved to his usual cross-legged position and began repositioning his papers, dusting off the dirt that had accumulated. When he repositioned the vase to its upright position, he glanced at its current empty state, then at Tony, then back at the vase. His head hung low, absently staring at his papers. Wanting to be of assistance, Tony had a revelation. “Scissors?” he suggested, “If you are missing your scissors, we have some inside that you can use.”

Whole The artist’s head fell as he stared at the pink piece of paper. Nearby, a piece of newspaper was also crumpled into a ball, and Tony watched his face turn from the pink paper to the newspaper and back again. His hands remained motionless as Tony finally went back to work. People demanding refunds because their cappuccino didn’t taste like the one they would buy at the gas station and a constant flow of people demanding special orders kept Tony from seeing the artist leave. That was not very unusual; he very seldom saw him pack up his bamboo mat for the day. As he left the coffee shop that day, though, he couldn’t help but notice the pink paper still on the ground, demoted to the status of common litter. It was a crisp morning as Tony walked down the sidewalk to work. Mourning doves cooed their calming song somewhere nearby, and Tony reveled in the early morning sunlight until he unexpectedly stepped on something. The crunch and snap underneath his feet told him whatever it was, was no longer in one piece. Looking down at the ground, he saw a spray of mud-colored glass fragments, and Tony grunted with disgust as he wondered why people didn’t pick up their garbage. After kicking the glass fragments into a pile and throwing them into the nearest garbage can, he turned the corner and found the sidewalk unoccupied, which wasn’t too surprising. The artist didn’t come every day of the week and kept no set schedule. Tony figured that after the previous day’s incident, the artist decided to take some time to himself. But every day he turned the corner he was greeted with an empty sidewalk. A few months later an older woman stepped up to the counter; she wore a red sun dress that hung on her like a garbage bag, and her oversized glasses made her seem even smaller and bug-like. Knowing the artist would never return, Tony had placed the flowers he had received all those early mornings into vases and placed them one on each side of the loose teas and flavor syrups that lined the back wall. “So, did he end up getting a real job?” the woman asked after ordering her latte. She pushed up her glasses and set a canvass bag on top of the counter. A smirk of self-assurance crept its away across her face. “Excuse me?” Tony asked stopping the steaming of the milk because he was sure he had missed part of the conversation. “The flower-folder,” she responded gesturing to the vases on the back wall. “You can’t live on folding paper and not taking money when people offer,” she offered as explanation as she dug through her canvass bag,

The papers slid from the artist’s fingers. A light breeze took a yellow piece of paper and scratched it across the sidewalk into the road. The artist didn’t even try to stop it; instead, he stared at Tony. His eyes, large pools of pity, saw Tony perhaps for the first time. Tony, for once, looked down in reproach. He wasn’t sure why. “No,” the young man declared as he put his baseball cap back on, backwards. A distance of miles seemed to grow between the two men, though they were feet away from one another. “There is no need for scissors,” the artist declared. His eyes had grown large with criticism as he surveyed Tony like a boxer would size up his competition. Feeling somehow exposed, Tony tugged on his ponytail, and as he thought about it, he had never seen the artist use any sort of cutting in his work—not even a tear. “I have no flower for you today” the artist stated, and Tony felt almost as if it were a punishment for his insolence at making a suggestion of a scissors. But, Tony realized he must have misinterpreted the artist’s intentions, because as he was unlocking the door to go into the coffee shop, he heard the quiet yet strong voice from behind him: “I’m sorry.” When Tony took his break later that morning, he sat sipping an Americano and nibbling on a scone. It was a busy day in town. The college kids were getting ready for finals and were crowding the streets on one of their last weekends of freedom before summer jobs took them away to other parts of the state. Staring out the window, Tony observed a group of five college guys circle around the artist. They watched the artist while talking and laughing with one another. As usual, the artist didn’t look up from his work. Tony assumed the artist knew them, but then he watched one of the guys reach over and flip the artist’s hat off his head. Through the glass the group’s silent laughter was deafening, and Tony glared at the guy who flipped off the hat. On his arm ran a pattern of dark blue ink in the shape of barbed wire trailing up underneath the sleeves of his t-shirt, and Tony watched as this arm reached down and grabbed a pink flower out of the vase. The artist had put his hat back on, and he and Tony both watched the barbed wire on the guy’s arm expand with muscle as it attacked the pink bloom of paper. As the flower slowly collapsed in on itself, pink bled through the space in between the guy’s fingers as he crumpled the flower into a piece of trash, and with a flick of his wrist the pink mass hit the artist in the face and landed in between the vase and the nearby bench.

which was decorated with puffy paint butterflies in various stages of flight. Tony remembered the woman as the one who was upset that the artist had never taken her money when she offered. “People get paid in different ways.” “What, then, did he get fired?” she smiled up at him from above the plastic frames, a twinkle in her eye. “You know,” he paused pondering over that last day, “I think he may have thought that.” The woman gave him a curious look but let the conversation fall as she turned for the door; he put her money in the register and ripped off the receipt that the woman obviously didn’t want. He crumpled the receipt, and instead of dropping it thoughtlessly into the wastebasket, he kept it tight in his closed fist.

Another Thing To Fall There is an escaped strand of hair clinging to the swell of her bottom lip. If things were different, if we were not the people that we are resigned to be, I would have closed the awful distance between us and tucked the stray hair behind her ear. My hand might have lingered there, palm against her cheek, fingertips tracing stars onto her skin. But there are rules, and reasons to follow them. There is a train, and a ticket with her name on it, and a sea of unsaid everythings. My fingernails scrape the lint at the bottom of my pockets, setting roots to resist the temptation. I regret that I am a romantic. The church is full of them. It is the occupational hazard of believing in the impossible. Seminary only serves as an escape once in a lifetime. A single punch­card, no do­overs, no second-guessing. Two years ago, I had every intention of loving no one but God in an effort to simplify things. Abandoning the practice of modern romance was easy when the bruises were fresh. The flesh of my fragile heart had caught too many times on the sharp angles of bad love. Devotion was free of the snarl and mess of ordinary love. My faith has always been a guilt­free indulgence in affection. I could love and be loved without the collateral. It had been Christian charity that compelled me to offer Lilli the spare room beneath my umbrella that afternoon

outside of the cafe. But it had been another power entirely that had drawn me back to her company, day after day, sharing unfamiliar histories and a dish of sugar cubes. She was on holiday, hiding away at her gran’s old house in the beach town she had not visited since she was a girl. I knew her grandmother from Sunday mass, but had never heard of Lilli until she was there, sitting in the pews, inventing the lyrics to the hymns. I accepted her invitation to coffee as a kindness, that was all. It had nothing to do with the pale green of her eyes, like sunlight through stained glass. When I told her that I lived in the rectory, her smile faltered. For a moment, I had forgotten my resemblance to the most mediocre of men. Free of a cleric or wooden cross on my back, I might have been anyone. My Catholic school blood settled me comfortably amongst all the in­betweeners: the floss once, brush twice a day boys. I have known from the beginning that loving her was a disaster. The church insists they have rid the cloth of masochists, but it can’t possibly be true, as I have happily endured the suffering of an impossible affection. Lilli would mention past loves and I would swallow a mouthful of black coffee, trying to ignore the bitterness. We would sit together for hours, and I would imagine that I could hold her hand without breaking any promises. December was a mild month, facilitating the innocent communions that we shared. She would soak the shell of her croissant in coffee, sometimes forgetting, so that it crumbled away in her hand. “Do you ever get lonely?” she asked me once, licking flakes from her fingertips. I smirked, and made a vague motion towards the ceiling. “I’m never alone.” Lilli had made a face. She never minded my awful unfunniness. She was clever enough for the pair of us. I second­guessed every word I said to her, wondering which

would be the sin. We met at that cafe for conversation, never conversion. It was a rare and beautiful acquaintance. My love has never been for her, the composite, but rather the delicacy of interwoven details that could be dissected and separated from the whole. How she used her pinky finger to scoop foam from the top of a latte. How she told stories with the breathy anticipation of her own punchline. How she never pressed for an answer to the question of why and what we were. It’s possible to get to know someone while sitting in the corner table with drowsy rain against the window, and it’s possible to know someone as we stand here, counting down the seconds together in silence, before the train arrives and we part for the last time. And maybe coffee will not taste as sweet once she has left, but she has to leave all the same. This was only ever a vacation: nothing was supposed to break. We crossed that line without meaning to. After all, there is no rule against falling in love with the sound of a person’s voice. Too often has the unwelcome thought crossed my mind that I could be very happy in a life with her. I am happy in this life too, with its measured practicality and daily wonder. I am more than willing to dedicate myself to prayer and integration and the open bar at the annual seminarian’s Christmas party. But across the mélange of our shared hours, there have been fleeting glimpses at a future in which Sundays only meant lazy jam and toast in bed, a lousy song on the radio, and her smile in the doorway “Don’t take this the wrong way,” I say, and she looks up, “But if you ever come back, I think it might be best if you don’t tell me.” The overhead lights cast strange shadows across Lilli’s face. “Oh,” she exhales the sharp, unhappy punctuation. “I hope you understand.” She looks away, out into the darkness beyond the track, as though trying to discern in it some future that did not involve me. I do not follow her gaze to see it, for fear that I might lose the slim courage keeping me upright. I remind myself, not for the first time, that this is not the worst thing that has ever

happened to me. It is hardly the worst thing happening in the world, but for the selfish minutes I have left, nothing else could distract my misery from its attachment to her. Love, for all the good it is meant to do, is a damned thing. When she turns back, there is something resolute in the set of her jaw. The train is only minutes away now, and somehow that makes us braver. “I won’t say that I’m happy about it,” she speaks without blush. There are no more secrets to keep. “Me neither,” I admit, “But I can’t take the risk.” Three weeks had already restructured the shape of my conscious. Any more time and I would be getting on the train with her. “It’s silly,” she sighs, a small frown pulling at her lips, “I just. Well, I never gave up on you. Not entirely. But I suppose this is it, isn’t it?” “It is,” I say, because this is an exercise of staying inside the lines. The headlight of the train bathes us in soft yellow as it approaches. It is small comfort that there are two broken hearts on the platform. In the new light, she smiles. “I hope He makes you happy.” I choke out a hollow sort of laugh. “We’ll be alright in the end,” I manage, “He tests us all.” She rolls her eyes. “Yeah, tell Him thanks for that.” As the train glides to a careful stop, neither of us move. We don’t speak, don’t look away, but we don’t fall apart either, and there is some small victory in that. She reaches out and steals one of my hands from its guarding pocket. Held gently between hers, warmth floods my fingertips and, for a moment, we are back on that sleepy side street in the rain, with an umbrella above our heads. She is looking at me, and asking a question that I can never answer. She begins to move away, and I let her, until it is only the tips of our fingers keeping us connected. Then nothing. She boards the train and does not turn to say goodbye. Everything unsaid remains in the cold beside me, watching as the doors close and she disappears. I search the passing windows for her face, but meet nothing but drawn curtains or the blank stares of strangers. The train leaves the station and I remain on the platform, blinking away the bands of light burnt into my vision. I stay until the cold fills my chest, and every star above spreads its light like wings and flies away, leaving only darkness. My breath escapes into the night air as an exhale of frustrated steam. I watch as it catches the red light of the arrival sign announcing the next train.

A Matched Indifference Old women do not attract the attention of priests. A parish can always count so many widows, soon-to-be-widows, and a smattering of old maids like myself. The priest will conduct our quiet funerals in front of a sparse congregation. A misperception, old women appear to give the most reverence to the priest, and seemingly without question or scrutiny. The priest currently assigned to St. Catherine’s pushes his gentle manner and kind, loving words to excess. When children gather near him, his hands reach down and he gently cups the back of their heads. He gives a reassuring rub and then he spreads out his arms and hands to their parents in a jubilant welcome. These are fleshless embraces. The young of the parish take a reward from his smile and his extended hand. Now, to me, it seems to be a smile painted on a cheap doll. The priests of my younger years carried stern faces, demeanors earned by the heavy duties they carried. Father Megner, the priest before Father Boldt arrived in the midtwenties, chewed on his own mouth. He sucked on his large teeth, and his gaunt face was pocked. To match his straight and greasy dark hair, an odor lingered around him. He was an awfully ugly man. As best anyone knew, he laundered his own clothes and cooked his own meals. Refusing to use an automobile, he tended and cared for his horse that he hitched to a buggy. The next priest, Boldt, immediately tore down the small stable adjacent to the rectory. My brother, Steven, didn’t care about or see the ugliness in Megner. According to Steven, Megner knew history and philosophy, and he considered his job to be learned. One of three or four young men that gathered around Megner, Steven heard his history lessons. While the rest of us acquiesced to the unfolding of world war, Megner placed it in an historical sequence that he explained to his small gang of young men. “I hear one half of history at school,” Steven said. “I hear the other half from Father Megner.” “Maybe you know too much,” Mother said. “Father says that we…America… thinks it will alter history if we enter the war in Europe. But history always alters us.” “I don’t know what that means,” Mother said. I didn’t understand until Auggie died. Auggie and I were courting. Before he left for France, he asked me to wait for him. When word came of Auggie’s death, Megner did not come to the house. At the cemetery his words came from the missal. It seemed he stood alongside our sorrow, but he did not hold it himself. Steven said later that historians do that. In the confessional a week or two past the funeral Mass, I started by rote, “Bless me Father, for I…” “Helen, the world sins and those are not your personal sins. Don’t worry about sin…about your sins right now. Don’t worry about that,” he said. “I’m lost,” I said. “I feel empty now. I cried all week. But now I don’t know if I should cry more.” “Does someone tell you not to cry?” he asked. “Mother says that it’s time for me to ‘get on with the world.’” “You’ll feel your sorrow until the sorrow just seems normal,” he said.

“Just be sad, go ahead. And then it will be there with your happiness.” “Auggie didn’t propose. We knew we wanted to…” “That’s just so many words; a proposal is just the words. You know what Auggie felt,” he said. “Is your mother saying that you don’t have the full right to be sad?” “No…she says…” I said. “Helen…Miss Prevett, for your penance, go home and cry all night long, tonight, tomorrow night, for as many nights as you need to cry, cry!” he said. I am still struck by his wisdom. He added a simple offer before I was able to push myself up from the kneeler. “Maybe when you are ready, you might work as the housekeeper in the rectory…here in the church. But when you are ready and you will know when.” Then he slid the little door closed. A lull came in our supper conversation that evening and I filled it in with Megner’s offer. It seemed safe to disclose that part of my confession. “Oh, no!” Mother blurted. But Father put down his fork and raised his hand across his plate. “We…you should leave a job like that to someone from a family with need,” he said and he kept his hand poised above his plate. “That’s who should take a job like that.” Mother watched me closely that night. She insisted we pray the rosary. I stayed awake for several days, but I was afraid to cry. I did not know how to take advice from a priest, one who used my first name, who knew who I was behind the opaque screen of the confessional. I suppose, if I admit it, I understand him now, his advise to cry, and yes, his offer. Father’s steady hand above his plate is unforgettable! When Megner died suddenly, members of the parish cleaned the rectory from top to bottom. They took much of his belongings a few miles from town and started a bonfire. In less than a week from his arrival, Boldt enlisted some of those same men to tear down the old stable. Boldt carried his weight and muscle on a short frame. At evening in the heat of summer, he might be a lone swimmer crossing the Wisconsin River. Father noticed him one evening out our parlor window. From a distance, I saw the priest pull himself from the river, dressed only in his swim trunks. He might put his cigar down for a few moments to talk or work, and of course to swim, but when not saying Mass, he had it either in his mouth or on its way to his gaping lips. Only speaking from my experience, he didn’t talk directly to younger women either. Perhaps my sister, Corrine, said something once, but I doubt if it was a lengthy conversation. Of course there was the confessional. “Three Our Fathers and Three Hail Marys.” Boldt looked at me though. He looked at Corrine as well. Just a couple of times I noticed him pause as he moved onto the sidewalk after Mass. He greeted Father, nodded at Mother and passed by Corrine and I, his eyes curious about something. His eyeballs stayed still for a moment or two and even his hands halted in their motion. I knew I had been looked at. Corrine parted her lips and drew her head away. I would say both of us were uncomfortable for those moments, so discomfited as to say nothing to one another.

Boldt did not seem to look at his housekeeper. He knew Emma worked next to him preparing for Mass, cleaning the rectory, and cooking his meals. As it’s said in most places, the priest had a housekeeper. Emma appeared shapeless with simple strands of hair pulled down and tied in a long ponytail. As colorless as light-brown hair can be, it turned a mottled gray over the years, always tied into a tail. She set her facial expression to her work: simple jobs, tedious and familiar tasks. Boldt took his release with Emma, regardless. I have to believe Steven’s account, one he developed by literally standing in the shadows of the rectory at midnight. He confirmed the gossip of others. On most Wednesdays Emma left the rectory at midnight. With her drab hair hanging loose and her step less measured, she left by a back door. I imagined the near bare torso of Boldt standing a few steps back, the body I saw as he pulled himself from the river. On a schedule, a routine that kept him sated, Emma joined with him as she might have washed the floors or set the altar cloths. This is my telling, my perception of such an association between a priest and a waif of a housekeeper. But if Emma’s heart raced, if Boldt raised his hand gently to her face, no one I know ever witnessed the acts that would proceed or follow save Steven and a few others standing in a secret shadow. Emma had to think, and think about it daily…and all day on some days…and remain expressionless as she moved from task to task. A small and thin woman, she squared away her shoulders and stood erect. Only age brought on a stoop common to all of us. Mother and Father knew, for sure they knew. And they would have acquiesced to the persistent deception. The parish…no one from the parish negotiated the protracted sophism. We all strived to be virtuous, to be held in God’s grace. This was something concurrent but not congruent necessarily, not to me anyway. Without seeing any hint of romance, I felt deeply sad. Boldt retired with the title of the Right Reverend Monsignor Boldt. Taking Emma with him, he moved to a lake home fifty or more miles north of Twin Pines, far enough away to almost vanish from our thoughts. Maybe some felt that Emma and Boldt settled into a little love nest. But when Boldt died, his body returned to Twin Pines for a stately funeral overseen by the diocese. Maybe I was the only one looking for Emma, or the only one waiting for a mention of her name. Nothing! The celebrant of the Mass praised Boldt’s stalwart shepherding of St. Catherine’s congregation, but nowhere in his homily did he insert the existence of Emma or her coexistence with Boldt. Raised bronze letters announce the remains of Right Reverend Monsignor Boldt on a gravestone in Saint Catherine’s Cemetery. I am left to guess that Emma’s remains lie in a modest grave 50 or more miles north of here, and no title in raised letters will point to her steadfast service to a congregation, to a church, to a priest! For a long time I wanted to be the one to smash the deception. But how can anyone do that, explain it all and still keep Emma’s deep goodness intact? As long as she knelt with such dedicated subservience at Mass, the

rest of us could glance away for a moment or two. The clean church, the crisp vestments and altar cloths, the Angeles bell precisely tolled made us all Catholic. More than anything, her penitence helped us all atone. This sin, his sin, did not push us way from church. And if we doubted church, religion, believing in priests, we did not show it unless we doubted deep inside, privately. I still go to Mass and any observer could say religiously so. I saw Boldt rise from the river without his holy garments. He was a well-formed man who loved the rigor of a strenuous swim, who took the pleasure of a woman, a primal form of being a man. Mother and Father did not feel sad about all the contradictions, the obvious violation of Emma. At least I did not see that as the source for any of their everyday and awfully human anxiety. Did they believe that virtue had to exist alongside primitive appetites for even or especially for a priest? One little thought I have had for a while tells me that I felt sad because I was afraid. Whatever I was, however I appeared, that priest looked at me long enough. I didn’t think I offered any other reason for his interest, for his momentary appraisal. Maybe Megner based his offer on innocent and genuine concern, but my father always showed himself to be a smart man. I’m an old woman now, but I hold back from any starry-eyed reverence for our current parish priest. If he is the one to celebrate my funeral Mass, I have already matched his indifference.

Grandpa’s Lesson The boy should have turned back when the river ice first cracked, but he was nine and didn’t know better. To have turned around would have meant giving up an afternoon of exploring the forest on the north side of the river. He had never explored across the river. Plus, the opportunity to slip out of the house didn’t occur very often. The boy had waited until his grandpa was busy listening to the noon radio report talking about the war in Vietnam, then snuck out the back door. He headed north toward the river knowing if he got caught there would be a spanking. The only witness to his escape was Milo, the Border collie that lived down the road with Mr. Sorenson, a widower like his grandpa. Milo had spotted the boy as he was climbing over the barbed-wire fence leading to the pasture. The dog bounded through the ankle-deep snow determined to be out on a hike with the boy. The boy welcomed his new partner with a scratch behind the ears and the two headed across the flat pasture leading to the river. So, when the boy heard the river ice crack for the first time, he was close enough to the three-foot high river bank that he simply scrambled up it and got to his feet. He looked around at the unexplored woodland and quickly forgot about the cracking river ice. As he stood there proud and smiling, he wondered if Christopher Columbus felt this way when he discovered America. The boy thought he probably did. The boy and Milo explored the old growth of walnut trees for an hour before the boy realized the winter sun would be setting soon. He followed his footsteps back to the river and slid down the bank where he had earlier climbed out. When both feet landed on the ice he heard the river ice crack for the second time. He took a hesitant step with his right foot and then with his left. Suddenly, his left leg punched a hole through the ice and went down past his knee. What scared him wasn’t the shock of the freezing water or the realization that his foot didn’t touch the bottom. What scared the boy was the pull on his leg. It was the strong current flowing under the ice. The boy yanked his leg out and rolled over on his right side away from the hole. He laid still until he was

and how Milo saved his life and how sorry he was for lying and how sorry he was for killing the dog. His grandpa stroked his head and asked the boy what should be done next. The boy thought of poor Mr. Sorenson and knew the man deserved to know the truth. Milo had saved his life. He told his grandpa that he needed to tell Mr. Sorenson the truth and started getting out of bed to dress. His grandpa gave a soft laugh and told the boy that he needed to rest more and they would visit Mr. Sorenson in the morning. The boy laid back down and was soon asleep. In the morning, the two dressed and made the short trip to their neighbor. As they walked down the road, the boy held his grandpa’s hand; something he hadn’t done since he was seven. Mr. Sorenson opened the door and invited the two to sit down in his front room. Once settled, the boy’s grandpa instructed the boy to tell his story of the river ice. The boy told the same story he told his grandpa, but this time he held his head up. When he got to the part about Milo jumping in the freezing water to save him, the boy saw a prideful smile creep up on Mr. Sorenson’s face. When he finished, Mr. Sorenson took the boy’s hand and told him he appreciated the truth even when telling the truth was hard. He also said he thanked the Good Lord that the dog was there to save him. Mr. Sorenson then invited his neighbors to stay for breakfast. When they went into the kitchen, the boy noticed that the table was already set for three. The breakfast was scrambled eggs, fried ham, and all the toast and jelly the boy could eat. His hunger surprised him, which pleased both old men. The two men laughed and reminisced about dogs they had in their long lifetimes while the boy sat between them not sure how he should feel. He was both ashamed and relieved for telling the truth. The boy knew in time he would try to read his grandpa’s book about restoring lost honor again but not until he was much older. Right now, he decided he was happy to be sitting in between the two old men listening to their stories. He looked into his grandpa’s eyes and for the first time realized how they matched his own. His grandpa saw him, smiled, and handed the boy another slice of toast.

darkness. The calls were sad and desperate. The boy woke when he heard a knock at the door. He sat up and heard his grandpa invite the visitor into the front room. It was Mr. Sorenson who had been calling for his lost dog. Mr. Sorenson wanted to know if anyone had seen his dog that afternoon, especially the boy who the dog loved dearly. The boy’s grandpa told Mr. Sorenson that the boy was resting, but he would ask him in the morning. Then their voices grew soft and the boy could no longer hear every word. He thought he heard Mr. Sorenson whisper, “Oh no!” three times. When Mr. Sorenson was leaving, he thought he heard his grandpa say, “We’ll see you in the morning.” The boy noticed that when Mr. Sorenson left, he no longer called out for Milo. The boy’s grandpa came into the bedroom to find the boy crying. He sat down on the edge of the bed and gently asked the boy if he knew anything about Mr. Sorenson’s dog who had gone missing. The boy kept his eyes on the gray blanket at the foot of the bed and said he had not seen the dog. The old man went on to tell the boy that, after supper, he had taken the flashlight and found the boy’s footprints in the snow heading toward the river and the same set of footprints coming back. He also said he saw the dog’s footprints, but they only led toward the river and not back. In a softer voice, the boy’s grandpa asked if he knew anything about Mr. Sorenson’s dog. The boy sobbed and said no. The old man sighed. He reached past the boy for one of the two books that had been on his nightstand for as long as the boy could remember. One was the Bible he received in 1907 when he was the same age as his grandson. The other book he had brought back from Europe ten years later when he fought in WWI. The title read The Poem of the Cid. The boy had tried reading it once but could never make sense out of the verses. This was the book the old man picked up and held in his hands with familiar gentleness. The boy’s grandpa cleared his throat and told the boy that the book was written hundreds of years ago about a Spanish nobleman named El Cid whose king no longer had confidence in. But, by doing heroic acts, El Cid regained the confidence of the king and his honor was restored. The boy’s grandpa said the book was about integrity and doing the right thing even if it was hard to do. The old man pointed at the book and said something that the boy wouldn’t have understood if it had been said by his teacher or anyone else. But when he heard his grandpa say it, he understood the phrase as well as any nine-year old was capable of. His grandpa had said, “The honor restored will be greater than the honor lost.” For the third time, the grandpa asked the boy about Mr. Sorenson’s dog. This time the boy nodded yes and buried himself in his grandpa’s chest weeping. When the crying passed, he told what happened on the river ice

confident the ice would hold him. He rolled two more times before getting to his knees in the middle of the frozen river. Carefully, he stood with his feet spread wide. The boy noticed with giddy curiosity that his left pant leg from the knee down was quickly becoming stiff in the winter breeze. He would have to be sneaky about changing his pants and shoes when he got home. Milo whimpered and barked at the boy standing in the middle of the frozen river. Both the boy and the dog looked to the south bank twenty feet away. If they could make that, they would be safe. The dog easily trotted to the south bank and then ran back and forth barking at the boy. The boy knew he couldn’t stay where he was, so he started taking baby steps toward the bank. When he got within five feet of the bank, he heard the ice crack for the third and last time. The ice gave under his feet. The boy jumped for the bank, but it was too late. He found himself chest deep in the frigid water fighting the powerful current as it flowed around him and under the ice. This time, his entire body was being pulled by it. With nothing to hang on to, the boy was slipping into the current. Just when the boy’s head was starting to go under, he felt an icy splash in front of him. It was Milo. Instinctively, the boy grabbed the dog and tried climbing on top of him. The buoyancy was enough for the boy to make a lunge toward the bank where he was able to grab a root. He pulled himself out of the river and up the bank. He looked back for Milo, but the dog was gone. The boy had pushed him under the water where the current took the dog under the ice. The boy cried out and ran downstream hoping to catch a glimpse of Milo but there was nothing but black, milky river ice. As his body began to shake from the cold, the boy knew Milo was gone and he had killed him. He would be in trouble if his grandpa found out. No one must ever find out. It would be his secret. All he could do now was get home before he froze. The boy stumbled and staggered as he made his way back through the pasture toward his grandpa’s house. By the time he got to the barbed-wire fence, the cold had robbed him of his ability to climb. He pitched his body across the top barbed-wire strand tearing his coat before landing on the other side. When he finally made it to the back door, his grandpa was waiting for him. The old man saw the ice on the boy’s winter coat and knew that the boy had fallen through the river ice. There would be no need for a spanking. He hugged the crying boy and told him everything would be okay. He brought him into the house and undressed the boy from his frozen clothes. The boy let his grandpa do these things without any embarrassment reserved for a nineyear old boy. After a warm bath and dry clothes, the boy’s grandpa fed him supper and the boy was soon asleep in his grandpa’s feather bed. The boy dreamed Mr. Sorenson was calling out for Milo in the winter

“I’m very worried about your mother.� Oh, Jeez. My silent reaction was something between a sigh and a moan. Sadness combined with annoyance. My poor dad. Watching him slowly deteriorate was distressing and painful. Gradually at first, barely noticeable, simply a part of growing old; no, the physical frailty was obvious now and sad enough but it was his mental state that was most upsetting. He had been such a smart man, bright, determined, stalwart, dependable, mentally and emotionally strong. Now his random episodes of confusion and forgetfulness were more frequent and his fears and anxieties increased. He had become reluctant to travel, afraid of how he might feel or what might happen, preferring to remain within the presumed security of his own home. He worried about everything, his health, my mom’s health, the tree next to the house that he imagined might fall onto the roof, what time the mail would arrive. Of course I was the one he would call. The older child who was a physician and thereby invested with the knowledge and wisdom that many, at least of his generation, faithfully believed resided within the being of the medical practitioner. Their son the doctor of whom my folks were so proud. It had not been easy but they had somehow found a way to provide for the greater part of the cost of my medical education. My dad had once aspired to practice medicine; he determined that the financial burden on his parents would be too great. Instead he became a pharmacist and

while his folks had earned a living selling penny candies, two cent seltzers and two-for-a-nickel cigars, he did a bit better but the cost of my education had risen far faster than he and my mom had been able to save. Still, they found a way. I spent the first fifteen years of practice as an emergency physician. A type of practice that was fast paced, exciting, stressful, and rewarding. Patients were seen, diagnosed, treated, admitted to the hospital or discharged. Then it was off to the next patient. My folks were proud when I became board certified in emergency medicine, though they may not have entirely understood what that meant, they were proud when I contributed a chapter to an emergency medicine textbook, proud when I became director of an emergency department. Now, though, I was in a general practice in an office with a sign out front that displayed my name which meant that I was a physician in the way they had imagined and in the form with which they had grown up. Sometimes during visits they would detour to drive past the office simply to see my name on the sign. Patients were seen in a slower, calmer, more leisurely fashion and then seen again. Patients’ worries, concerns, fears were discussed in greater detail. I enjoyed listening and when appropriate, reassuring. So of course my dad had called me. Again. He had already called me that day, earlier in the afternoon. My mom had abdominal pain, he told me during that first call, and they had gone to see their doctor who had told them

condition sounded to be under control for the moment. About an hour later our secretary told me I had a phone call. “It’s your dad again.” “I’m very worried about your mother.” The poor guy, I thought. It had been breaking my heart to watch what was happening to him these past years, powerless despite my years of training and experience to fix it. The best I had been able to do beyond seeing that he received the best care available was to listen, to care, to love. I told him that when I finished my work in the office I would drive to their home and see for myself. In the background I heard my mother yelling at my dad. “No. I don’t want him to come.” Just like my mom, I thought. But I had to go. Not so much for my mom who would be okay for now according to the doctor who had actually seen her and laid on hands, but for my dad. He was clearly in bad shape mentally and I needed to be there to comfort him. I would drive down, check out my mom, stay for a bit and visit, and then I would drive the hour and a half back home with my dad’s mind hopefully set to rest. As I drove to their home I thought about the irony, the reversal of roles for my dad and me. Was this inevitable, would I someday have to rely on my sons to provide to me the strength and reassurance my dad now required? I arrived and walked in the door, left open. In seconds, from across the room, I saw my mom was severely ill. In a few seconds more I knew she

she was alright for now and sent them home. My dad thought that she was more ill than the doctor had recognized. He thought more needed to be done. He worried. I had asked to speak with my mom and our conversation was brief and her comment not unexpected. “I’m okay.” I told my dad I’d call the doctor and speak with him and ask just what he had found when he had seen her. As a physician myself I would be able to get details that might be helpful so far as reassuring my folks, particularly my dad who needed, clearly, to be reassured. I had spoken with their physician a handful of times in the past few years regarding one or the other of my folks. I thought him, based upon those conversations, to be reasonably competent. I would have done some things differently than he but medicine is that way; there is often more than one way to do things. Now I called and he told me that he had seen and examined my mom that day, she had some abdominal pain that did not appear to be severe or immediately worrisome, he had ordered some tests to be done the following week to look further. I called my dad back to tell him I had spoken with their doctor and confirmed what they had been told. If my mom were not a lot better by morning he should call the doctor and arrange for her to be re-evaluated. My dad did not seem completely happy with this advice but agreed to it. I returned to my own patients, worried more about my dad and his anxiety than about my mom whose

had a septic gall bladder. She was far too ill for me to get her to my car so I called 911. Minutes later she was on her way to the hospital. I got my dad into my car and we were off to the ER and my mom. I sat my dad down in the waiting room and after a few minutes I was speaking with the emergency physician, giving him my mom’s history, medication list, and recounting the events of the day. I then left him to do his job. A half hour later my dad and I were next to my mom, IV running, antibiotics infusing, oxygen flowing, pain medication working. My dad kissed her tenderly and she smiled at him. “Okay, go home now,” she said. I stayed the night with my dad. My mom recovered, went home and lived another decade, lovingly caring for my dad as he continued his descent into dementia. He had saved her life with his calls to me. There is no doubt that had they waited until the next day she would have died. Driving home I could not help but reflect upon how I had come to be a physician and thus contribute to my mom’s survival. My folks had somehow produced the funds necessary. They did not have the resources yet managed nevertheless. In some cosmic ledger the account had come closer to being in balance. But how? I had made the correct diagnosis; the education my folks provided made that possible. Yet it was mom’s illness and my dad’s concern that allowed me to enjoy a sense of happy and comfortable satisfaction that I had been able to use to their benefit what they had made possible – which was to my benefit as well. Cosmic ledgers can be tricky, I decided. Perhaps it was in balance all the time.

It’s a story with the classical elements of a strong beginning, interesting middle, and satisfying ending. It’s a situation that many of us have faced as we face the challenges of aging parents.” — Jerry Apps

You died in the big-city hotel where I worked while in college. Yours was not a tragic death like the lady who committed suicide, but a quiet death one night while you were alone in bed. Old age came to take you away. One of a dozen or so permanent residents of the hotel, you had been a guest for a year-and-a-half. Quiet, friendly looking, with kind features and white hair, you never said a word as you walked through the lobby, always paid your rent on time, and had no visitors in your narrow, seventh-floor room. The maids who cleaned your room twice a week never complained about the way you lived – not like they did about the beehive hairdo lady who always wore the same scarf and soiled felt coat whether it was summer or winter, and who the maids said about, “You should see her room. Wine stains on the walls, bags of aging food in the closet. The smell is horrible.” No, Arvid, you were different. No one had anything bad to say about you. In fact, no one really had anything to say about you, except that you were quiet. Alas, we never got to know you, Arvid. After you died and your relatives had come to see what you had left behind in your room and to claim what they wanted, Bill, the hotel manager, told me to go up to your room and take whatever I wanted of what was left. The rest would be thrown away. It was eerie entering the room of a dead man – like the time in high school when I attended a gathering in a distant town and we stayed in the home of a widow whose husband had died five years before and finding in the dresser drawers his cuff-links, wallet, socks and underwear, all neatly preserved and untouched, as though he still lived there. Walking into your room, Arvid, it felt as though you were still there. I half expected you to walk out of the bathroom and confront me as I rummaged through your belongings. Neatly arranged on your dresser top were your hairbrush, comb, nail clippers, razor and after-shave lotion. In the closet were some old shoes and a half-dozen sets of clothes, worn but not shabby – and very conservative. You were always a conservative dresser, Arvid. Other than that your belongings consisted of what was in two cardboard boxes on the bed. Your relatives must have been disappointed at what you left behind. It looked like they hadn’t taken anything with them. Bill said they were in your room for only a few minutes. The boxes told me a little about you, Arvid. There were some notebooks you had compiled as a power plant engineer years ago. Nothing much recorded in

them except readings and occasional, brief comments about minor problems encountered and solved. The pages were yellow, some of them water stained. They brought to life a part of your past we had known nothing about. Along with the notebooks were a few technical books on steam boilers and combustion systems, all remnants of a long-ago career. Testimonies to an engineer who provided heat or electricity to homes and businesses from the unsung depths of a rumbling, clanking boiler room buried deep in the bowels of a building, unnoticed and unrealized by all but a few. There wasn’t much else in those boxes, Arvid. But there was one thing I pondered over, and it was the only thing I took with me when I left that night. It was a book. It rests on my library shelf today. A work of literature – The Complete Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant. It is an old edition, published in 1903 and bound in thin, soft leather. It was the only non-technical book in your room. You didn’t even have any magazines or newspapers. What were you doing with a volume of Maupassant? Was it a gift from a friend or lover long ago? I doubt that you ever married, there was no trace of marriage in what you left behind – there were no photographs or rings. What significance did that curious book hold for you? I looked through its pages carefully, there are no pencil marks anywhere, no loose pieces of paper, and it looked like it had never been read. Well, anyway, Arvid, I took it with me. Partly because I like Maupassant and partly because several years before my great aunt Mary, after I had admired it at her home, gave me a companion volume of Mark Twain short stories by the same publisher and in the same binding. Arvid, part of you came home with me from the hotel that night, tucked neatly and safely under my arm as I walked through freshly fallen snow. When I got to my apartment, I penciled your name inside the front cover of the book so I wouldn’t forget who you were and because someday I thought I might write about you, and now I am. The maids went through the rest of your belongings, Arvid, after I was done. What they didn’t want the dumpster behind the hotel accepted without comment or complaint. Well, Arvid, I don’t know what else to say. We knew each other only briefly, by face and name only, and then we parted. I have a piece of your life on my bookshelf. What more needs to be said other than I hope you find death to be as peaceful as you seemed to find life. Thank you, quiet spirit, Arvid. It was nice having our paths cross ever so briefly.

Judge's Comments “The strength of this story is its simplicity, and its insight into a quiet, unassuming man that we learn about from what he has left behind in the hotel room where he lived for the past year-and-a-half. The author includes just enough detail to keep us reading, but not so much as to interfere with the emotional impact of the story.” — Jerry Apps

Crash Standing in front of our lockers on the first day of Gross Anatomy lab, we tried to look confident. But you could tell by our body language and lack of eye contact with each other that there was apprehension. We busied ourselves with changing into scrubs and futzing with our dissecting supplies, trying to camouflage our uneasiness. The thinned texture of the blue scrubs we were issued hinted at the countless times they had been laundered yet they still had that subtle smell of formaldehyde. And judging by the scented cloud that hung over the dental students, who had started lab a couple of weeks before us, we would smell like that for the rest of the year. It was the first week of medical school and our class was large, but already some personalities had begun to distinguish themselves. One of the most prominent was a super-sized, former college linebacker named Joe. Joe didn’t make it into the NFL so he went to medical school instead. It was his second choice. He was actually a pretty nice guy – vocal and funny – but that day he was revealing a pesky side by teasing us about our obvious discomfort surrounding our first gross anatomy lab, probably to detract from his own. He was largely ignored but hardly unnoticed as his bravado continued, and although Joe was a likable guy, you could tell by whispered comments and sideward glances that our class was collectively just a little annoyed. We were momentarily spared by a creaking sound from the lab door, and with some relief we turned our attention to a pale teaching assistant with stringy brown hair and tiny wirerimmed glasses balanced unevenly on his nose. After peeking through, he stepped into the hall where we are all waiting. A quick waft of the pungent preservative followed him. He tucked his hands behind his back, leaned against the door handle and began to intone a summary of the general protocol, finishing with a brief description of what we would be dissecting that day. Looking around me I caught visible reactions of uncertainty out of the corner of my eye and tried to hide my own. There was a concentrated aroma of formaldehyde emanating from this guy, who looked like he could stand a little more exposure to daylight, and it smelled terrible. There were squints and blinks as our eyes watered from the stinging vapors. The thick sense of foreboding was palpable. Addressing the group of onehundred-plus medical students, all dressed in blue, he told us to file into the anatomy lab and organize ourselves, four to a table. Walking in through the double doors we saw row upon row of cadavers laid out on metal tables covered in white sheets. We chattered nervously about our new surroundings in muted whispers – all of us, except Joe. As we all filed in, his voice echoed throughout the cement anatomy bay, but the escalating pitch to his laughter began to hint at his own

It is filled with interesting detail about a Med School Gross Anatomy Lab faced by a collection of apprehensive students not quite knowing what to expect. The story is well focused, and takes the reader by the hand and shows what goes on in such a lab, and how people react to a room filled with naked cadavers and the heavy smell of formaldehyde.” — Jerry Apps

time this had happened, the professor kneeled down beside Joe and as he slowly began to rouse, queried gently, “Son, are you alright?” Joe mumbled a foggy, “Uh huh,” and was carted off to the emergency room where, for caution’s sake, he was evaluated for a potential closed-head injury. When he rejoined us later that day he had to have anticipated the bit of ribbing he might receive from his classmates, and he did get a little. But he took it on the chin with a sheepish smile and laughed out loud when we dubbed him “Crash.” That’s what we called him for the next four years – long after the memory of how he even got the nickname in the first place had faded. Sure, he took some teasing but he was also met with a decent dose of sympathy, because we all understood that our first exposure to the Gross Anatomy lab could easily have landed any one of us on the floor. But that, I would come to learn, is how it is with med students. If one person falls, in a way we all go down, because whatever made one ofus to falter is probably what we are all feeling at any given time. The rites of passage are tough, frequently odd and you often find yourself emotionally unprepared no matter how many ways you work it out in your head before taking it on. It’s like a club of unwitting initiates into a secret world where you disassemble a body then spend the next four years learning how to put it back together again, trying to understand what made it fall apart in the first place and how to do your best to keep it from happening again. In retrospect, I think we cut Joe some slack for giving us a hard time because, in a strange way, what happened to him gave us permission to react to all the things we would encounter in the ensuing years – death, dismemberment, failure – with whatever emotions showed up and that, at least in our class, there was an unspoken understanding that it was acceptable and we were supported. The last I heard, Crash was working in Sports Medicine somewhere in Georgia – a fitting career for a former linebacker. But, of all the potential job choices he considered upon graduation, I’ll bet pathology wasn’t one of them.

underlying nervousness. Nonetheless, it was aggravating. Catching the eye of another med student, who puffed out his cheeks with an exhaled sigh and rolled his eyes, I returned the gesture with a tight-lipped smile and a headshake. “Enough already,” we silently agreed. After some shuffling to organize ourselves, we lined up around our tables –two on each side – and quietly awaited our instructor. While we were waiting, one brave soul in my group gently peeled back the sheet and we all peered somberly at the face of our cadaver. There lay a sizable, oliveskinned male with a Mediterranean, hooked nose with a broad chin. Straight away we affectionately dubbed him Guido. Somehow naming him made it personal, and it seemed to be understood among the four of us in my group that making it personal would honor the man who wanted to donate his body to science so that we might know what ‘n-the-hell we were doing. Thanks, Guido. The instructor eventually came in and began a lecture on the fine and delicate art of dissection, after which we were told to remove the sheets from our cadavers. The landscape of preserved bodies on metal tables lined up in neat rows in the vast bare room was surreal. I think we all felt vulnerable, because the quietness thickened as the professor’s voice took on a very respectful, reverent tone. After a lengthy pause, no doubt giving us time to process what we were seeing, he began to speak again. He didn’t get far, though, before he was interrupted by a loud, dull thump of a noise. Looking around to see where the sound had come from, it was quickly evident that Joe was down. He had passed out cold – lying limp and splayed out on the polished, grey cement floor. Despite the fact that Joe fainted, and quite possibly had a concussion from his head meeting the floor, the irony of him losing it at first sight of the cadaver did not escape us. The student with the most to say about how gross anatomy was no big deal was the one who fell first. Whether it was from the shock of what had just happened or the realization that it could as easily have been anyone of us sprawled out in front of our whole class, no one said a word. Moving calmly to his side, in a way that suggested this was not the first

A Moving Matinee

It has always confused me as to why going to the movie is considered something that must be done with others. Sitting in a dark space, staring at a screen in silence hardly seems like a social activity. When I go to the movies alone, people look in my direction and subtly shake their head as if apologizing from a distance. However, if the film is a family film, like when I went to see Toy Story 3, then the body language from strangers is much more suspect as they put an arm around the back of the chair, sheltering their child from the weird lonely guy at the matinee kid’s movie. Sitting down to see Toy Story 3, I noticed that the families afforded me lots of extra space as they selected their seats; but, the matinee was quickly filling, and people were soon forced to sit closer and closer to this single guy hanging out in the middle row texting his friends. As I was figuring out the word jumbles on the movie screen that they cycle through for those who show up early, a mother with two kids entered my row. The girl, probably around 5, had entered the requisite princess phase of girlhood. She wore pink with pride, and loved the glitter and puffy paint on her t-shirt. If there had

been a tiara within 20 yards, I have no doubt she would have fought to the death. The mother came next: a short woman, somewhat tired, with hair in a lose wave kind of like Karen Carpenter toward the end of her life. But, the real showcase was Junior. Junior was what has been labeled these days as a “tween”–probably about 12 or 13, right at that age where some sort of wiring in a teenage boy’s brain misfires and they turn into obnoxious, foul mouthed brats. Granted this is not the case for all middle school aged boys, but Junior– Lord, did I have pity for his parents and all his teachers. Passing in front of me, Junior’s pants hung so his SpongeBob boxer shorts belched out of the top waistband, his too large baseball cap was tilted to the side, and he was on his cell phone. And he was loud. “Yeah, I’m at this lame movie my sister wants to see.” “No, man, couldn’t stay home. Grounded.” “Yeah, sucks.” He stepped on my foot as he crawled down the row, and his head snapped to glare down at me from his self-righteous pedestal. It was my lucky day. Junior sat next to me, with only one seat separating the two of us. He stayed on his phone, mostly complaining about how unfair his mother was and how he couldn’t wait to be with his oh-so-much cooler father on the weekend. His language crude and demanding, he ordered his mother to get him popcorn–which she did. I figured she was choosing her battles, and since she had won the battle about him taking off his cap when he sat down (which resulted in a resplendent display of his skills with using four-letter words), this one wasn’t worth her time. Thankfully, the lights dimmed and Buzz and Woody started to play out their heart-breaking narrative at the nursery from Hell. It really was a beautiful movie. The toys were safe and sound, Andy decided to take them over to the little girl’s house, and he gave the back story for each toy--the back story we all knew from the previous two movies. Not going to lie, I teared up a little at the end. And right before Andy was saying that last goodbye before heading off to college, I heard a sound as if someone were trying to softly crinkle paper or blowing bubbles slowly in a glass of chocolate milk. The animated car on the screen started to drive off into the distance, and I heard the sound again. Turning my head, there was Junior–and he was crying. His attempt to discreetly stop his runny nose with no one noticing was a complete failure. With moisture on his face, reflected from the screen, I saw that his mother was also looking at him. Her eyes had that glassy look, reflecting in them a kid she once knew but thought she had lost, and I’m fairly certain I saw a couple tears, too; but, those tears weren’t intended for the movie.

HAL PRIZE 2016

Nonfiction Honorable

by Laurin Bellg

Afraid Of Snakes conversation ended with a “Thanks, but no thanks”. I saw Doug on occasion and each time I did would ask him how he was doing and take the opportunity to express my concern about his heart and the risk for a bad cardiac event that might claim his life. Always the cheerful fellow, he maintained that he was fine and didn’t feel he needed to explore the issue any further. I did learn, however, that he was looking into other options such as nutrition and chelation therapy, an alternative medicine approach to treating calcified coronary arteries. For a physician trained in western medicine, I’m actually fairly open-minded about alternative treatment, but when it comes to a blocked coronary artery I, along with my cardiology colleagues, still think it needs a stent – a metal spring that opens an obstructed vessel to let life-giving blood flow through to the heart muscle. One day a few months later I came home from work and my husband met me at the door to tell me Doug had died suddenly of a massive heart attack. I was devastated. Moreover, I felt like I had failed somehow in convincing him that, despite what his friend had experienced, he was far safer having the procedure than not. But his fear spoke louder than my feeble attempts to address those fears. As much as I am afraid of snakes, Doug was afraid of most things medical and that fear had cost him his life. Staring at a pile of pine needles he had convinced himself it was a snake and couldn’t see it any other way. I see a lot of fear from patients around issues of medical care and I’m sure other physicians would agree that it takes a lot of patience and skill to navigate those fears in order to bring about the best outcome for the patient. But I understand fear better now and in exploring my own sometimes irrational and unfounded fears, I’ve become better able to speak that language with patients – to take them by the hand and slowly lead them to the pile of pine needles, stir them gently with a stick and show them, “See, it’s not a snake after all. Just pine needles.”

Laurin Bellg is a wife, mother and physician who cannot resist the inner drive to see the world around her – both in and out of the hospital – through the rich lens of words.


Judge's Comments “This is a powerful story with a sad ending—and an important message. A better place to begin the story would have been with the paragraph, ‘I’ve never feared anything medical…’ and leave out the snake references. Keep the focus on Doug.” — Jerry Apps

lightheadedness in the same sentence catches your attention. Especially when the person delivering those words has high cholesterol, hypertension and is on the heavier side. “Doug, I think you need a cardiac stress test”, I said. I knew Doug outside of my work and I’d never seen him nervous until now. His speech became a little pressured and he seemed agitated. “I can’t do a stress test,” he replied. I tried several approaches to engineer his consent to the procedure and continued to meet resistance. I asked him to help me understand why he did not want to have this done and he told me an acquaintance of his received an injection during a stress test once and had a very bad reaction. Doug was physically active and I felt he could easily do a treadmill test and forgo an injection to stress his heart. It took a lot of reassurance but I finally convinced him that the particular study he would undergo would be completely safe and would involve no injections. Reluctantly he agreed. When I received the results of Doug’s stress test it revealed a rather worrisome focal abnormality on the EKG that most assuredly indicated a blocked artery on the back side of his heart. Furthermore, during the test it was reported that he experienced that same heartburn and sweating that had been intensifying over the past few months. I called him right away with the results and informed him that he needed to have a cardiac catheterization as soon as possible. He flatly refused it. It turns out that a friend of his had undergone the same procedure and suffered a heart rhythm problem during the procedure and had nearly died. He expressed intense fear around anything invasive – especially a procedure that he perceived might put his life at risk. I had called Doug on my cell phone as I was leaving the office and sat in my parked car for nearly an hour talking to him about how serious this was and that if he didn’t have the heart catheterization he might die from a heart attack. The long back and forth

I’ve always felt a little unsettled by the caduceus – a winged staff with two snakes intertwined in an ascending double helix that has come to symbolize medicine. Maybe it’s because I grew up in rural Alabama where, on most days, I had to watch my step. I know there is noble symbolism wrapped up in this coiling icon, but every time I look at it I can’t help but experience a little chill. Coexisting with assorted serpents for much of my youth, I certainly did not feel neutral about them. In fact, I developed a strong fear, swearing that I would move to a colder climate as soon as I could drive, and I did. When you have a deep fear that you nurture and cultivate, you have a tendency to filter everything through that fear. “Is that a pile of pine needles”, you ask yourself, “or a rattlesnake?” You stare at it until whatever matrix your brain has entrained upon the debris fades away, and you can see it for what it is – a pile of pine needles. I’ve personally never feared anything medical. Rather, I’ve always had an unquestioned trust that if I was broken, modern medicine could somehow fix me. So, when I became a doctor, I was not only surprised by but also struggled to relate to the paralyzing fear of medicine that I encountered in some patients. That was never so clear to me as it was with Doug. Doug was a bigger-than-life car salesman who was easily recognized by his fedora and bow tie. He had an enthusiastic air about him and was cheerful to the point that it was sometimes difficult to tell what he was really feeling underneath his easygoing manner. Doug came to me for a routine physical exam and in the course of the interview he complained about a nagging “heartburn” that had worsened over the last several months. In fact, he reported that lately when it occurred, he also had intense sweating and sometimes felt like he was going to pass out. He wrote it off to the stress of a busy life as an auctioneer. Now for a physician, hearing the words heartburn, heavy sweating and

“Love - and I mean true love, real love - can cripple us. It can make us miserable, and even dangerous to those we love. It can make us jealous, clingy, overprotective, guilt-ridden, and even vengeful. But appreciation is pure. It’s the kind of love that can let us step away, and even watch a loved one suffer, when suffering is what they need.” - Page 126 of What Happy People Know: How the New Science of Happiness Can Change Your Life for the Better by Dan Baker, Ph.D. He sat on the toilet, sleeping, pants around his ankles in our hall bathroom. The kids were sleeping soundly. I was looking for him to tell him I was going to bed and he had fallen asleep on the toilet. I stood still, not knowing what to do exactly. How had it come to this? I could’ve felt compassion at his alcohol dependence. But, he had a good life compared to many, so no, there was not much compassion. Was it more a genetic thing, something that ran in the family that I simply had to accept? His father only drank soft drinks. Was it an escape from past haunts? He openly talked about difficult teen years and his escape to the Florida Keys. He admitted being a difficult teenager to some extent, not overly prone to follow household rules, and when his father had to choose between his son and a new wife, the wife had won. He harbored no grudge over this; he just moved out on his own to an unheated friend’s cabin by a lake. Observing his humiliating posture, I wondered, what was I to do? If I shook him awake, he surely would be embarrassed. Would that be good or bad? Certainly, conversation at this point was useless. There would be mumbling at most. I suppose I should have, could have felt some sympathy for his sorry self. I could have chosen to try and shake him awake and tell him lovingly to come to bed. But, disgust had developed over time and progressed beyond pity, and so I left him there, knowing he’d wake up eventually, a ring around his butt, and make his way to bed. Somewhere around our ninth year of marriage, it became abundantly clear Thomas had a drinking problem. He would begin drinking at 11 a.m. and go through nearly a case of beer, 24 cans of beer, before the night was out. Day after day, night after night. Sometimes, I would watch and marvel: it apparently was necessary to kill the case even if that meant drinking his last two beers right before brushing his teeth before bed.

In addition to the expense of the bad habit, there was the toll it took on the boys and I. I got tired of repeating everything he and I discussed after 5 p.m. because the next morning he could not recall already having talked about these things. I have little patience for wasted breath and effort, and the endless repetition of previous evening conversations increasingly became a burden. It was worthless to talk to my spouse after dinner because it served no purpose and bore no reward. How lonely the situation had become. If my husband had to pick up our children from any place after 5 p.m., I was endangering them as back seat passengers in a drunk driver’s truck. And yet, I had enough work assignments that I was not able to be the single responsible parent. Our professional and financial situation warranted a functional two-parent household; my spouse simply had to be able to share kid duties. Thomas was never an angry drunk and seemed to weather alcohol in his system more or less well, but it appeared he was not all that happy about his drinking because he tried to hide it. He’d walk outside by his truck or tuck away in a corner of his art studio, away from interested eyes, to down the 12-ounce beer in about three seconds. It was never about the taste of beer; it was always about the buzz. He would stash beer cans behind various furniture in his art studio and under his truck’s seats, and before the weekly recycling pickup occurred, I’d go around un-stashing them and putting the cans in the bin. I even found them hidden away in bathroom cabinets. Who did he think was removing the endless empty can supply? Did he even remember putting them in these hiding spots? Tim swigged Listerine throughout the day to assist in the fooling, or trying to. Occasionally, I’d peer out the living room windows and watch him as he tried to conceal his drinking. Our oldest son, still so young, picked up on my creeping and the reasons for it, and from time to time, he’d comment about the drinking or beer cans he found in Dad’s truck or the bathroom. “Dad’s drinking,” he’d say, and it was not so much tattle-telling as sensing my concern and confiding in me. What a burden for a seven-yearold. There was not a lot I could say in reply. Tim was an adult who had to be responsible for his actions, but how exactly could I convey that truth to my beautiful son. “I know,” I’d say quietly. “It’s not good.” Occasionally, my mom or my sister would call and I’d comment that I

didn’t know how much more I could take. In addition to the loneliness from having a spouse I couldn’t talk to, night after night, it was hard physically and emotionally to be solely responsible for our two young kids’ homework oversight, school lunch making, bath taking and simply playing and tucking in bed. I needed a spouse I could count on, and he was not present. I never saw myself leaving him specifically. I figured at some point the situation would reach a zenith. There’d be an accident or a phone call from the sheriff or hospital. Eventually, if the situation got worse, I would probably choose to leave with the kids and tell him to let us know when he had gotten himself together. My mom suggested I attend the AA support group for spouses but I couldn’t see how I was going to fit in yet another responsibility, that is, a meeting outside the home, and leave the kids home alone with my useless husband. One time a friend asked me if there had been an ultimatum. And, I could sense the hackles rising up in this lifelong bachelor. I told him no. An ultimatum implies potentially false hopes and deadlines. I have learned there is a time when someone simply knows the right path. Things become clear. In my case, it would have been a time when enough was enough. I simply would’ve been done with the lonely, frustratingly difficult nights. It would have had to reach a desperate point where the kids would have been better off without their father and I better off without a spouse. It hasn’t reached that nadir. Around 2009, with our tenth year of marriage around the bend, it was time to move the abstinence and recovery process along. My father’s cousin, who had been to Alcoholics Anonymous, who had gone through the 12-step program, who had stopped drinking and who now led AA groups in Door County, Wis., and his wife, who also had had to stop drinking, sat down one evening with Thomas and I and my parents and we had a discussion about drinking in general and how it related to his predicament. The AA leaders did most of the talking and Tim added a comment here or there, admitting he had a problem and saying he wanted to do something about it. They invited him to attend an AA meeting in Wisconsin with them, but he said he’d think about it and it didn’t happen. It wasn’t long after that, though, that Thomas attended his first AA meeting with a friend in the Florida Keys. He came home and said it

them from Thomas’s anger and yet, it was hard to judge when it would flare because it was so nonsensical. After a while, still without beer, Tim’s normal personality returned and we resumed happier family relations. He didn’t yell at the kids and he could drive them places without me worrying about their lives being in danger. I didn’t intrude on his privacy about the meetings but I did ask at some point about when he had begun to drink in the morning. I always knew he liked Busch beers and a six-pack’s worth, but this case-a-day seemed to me altogether different. He replied it was about six years into our marriage and it started slowly… One day, his 5 o’clock beer started early, and soon earlier still, until 11 a.m. became the new start time. I had wanted reassurance that I had not missed the signs when we were dating, and he confirmed that in the first several years that we were married he did not drink until afternoon. The best culmination of being on the other side, out of the darkness of alcoholism, occurred at a Christmas

party in about 2009. I was chatting with a couple of ladies with whom I was acquainted from membership at a local gym. Thomas approached and he knew them, too, to my surprise. Soon, we had our photograph taken together with the party’s hostess. I noticed none of the five was drinking at this holiday party except for me. We were a happy friendly five-some, juxtaposed by everyday small-town life. On the way home, Thomas confessed he knew them through AA and we both grinned. We had moved beyond a crappy life and it was going to be a great new year ahead. Here we are, seven years later, and Thomas began his day at 7:30 a.m. with a beer beside his truck. My older son -- when he sees this -- will yell, “Stop drinking,” but he is at high school, so I yell, “Stop drinking” for him, as I made coffee. Thomas ignores me, ever the contented drunk. Resignation has set in and again I suspect either the sheriff or the hospital will end our family’s burden… ‘til death do us part, after all. There is little chance of a happy ending; just a slow march toward the unknown when life is in the crapper.

“A sad beginning, a hopeful middle, and a sad ending pretty much sum up this all-too-common story that too many families face these days. Leave out the quotation at the beginning, include more dialogue so we can hear people speaking, add a little more of the emotion from the spouse’s perspective, and this story will be a great one.”

wasn’t for him, he didn’t appreciate the religious factor, and for a while he walked the line between quitting and not. Then he attended another meeting with his friend, and then another. In his inimitable way, Thomas refused to do the program in the manner it traditionally worked; he didn’t want a mentor who called him every day, for example. That made me smile. We both hate the phone -- such an intrusive, necessary piece of machinery. Many times I have handed Thomas the phone while he had a paintbrush full of wet paint ready to continue some masterpiece, and the caller wanted to discuss tides or ask if fish are biting or reminisce about old times. So, Thomas began doing AA his way, and he obviously got something from the weekly meetings, because he continued to go to them. And, once he committed to not drinking, he never looked back, But oh, he was a cranky old fart without beer. Quick to anger, I didn’t know which was worse: a happy, drunk Thomas or a mean one who yelled too loudly at the kids for a minor transgression or for no real reason at all. I felt I needed to protect

Kewaunee Harbor Project Kicked Off Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman presided at the dedication of the Dockwall and Harbor Improvements Project for Kewaunee Harbor on Friday, July 29. According to Wisconsin Assemblyman Joel Kitchens, there is no other place in the state, in this budget cycle, with a project that’s comparable. He stated that it represents a revitalization of the entire area. It will stimulate tourism and help attract new businesses. Mayor Christman compared it to “winning the lottery.” Governor Scott Walker was on hand to participate, and referred to this as a great project for the state and for the region. “We’re happy to join the city of Kewaunee, the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation, local officials, and the Foth team in making the Kewaunee Harbor Restoration Project a reality,” Walker said. “The improvements to this harbor will undoubtedly attract more tourists to the area and spur economic development for decades to come.” The project rebuilds 800 feet of the existing wall and will additionally provide improvements to the local park, the boardwalk, and exterior restoration of the lighthouse. Originally built in 1881, the Kewaunee Harbor is made up of approximately 6,500 feet of breakwater and piers and 5,500 feet of maintained channel. The city of Kewaunee purchased land several years ago with the goal of restoring the harbor. Local government officials, businesses, and residents worked diligently to secure funding for the revitalization project for the commercial harbor. Wisconsin Act 55 provided a $4.22 million Harbor Assistance Program grant as part of the 2015-17 biennial budget. The city of Kewaunee plans to redevelop the property surrounding the harbor and has received interest from developers for hotel, retail, and business uses. The city also intends to add a boardwalk, green space, lighting, benches, public easements, extended parking and access to existing and new retail spaces.

recognized his work and gave the first groundwater priority watershed in the state of Wisconsin to Door County. As soon as that happened, he closed his textbooks and went back to work. “I never finished and got my degree,” said Schuster. “The point of the education was to change the program. We accomplished it. We got the priority watershed.” Schuster’s work on ensuring water quality hasn’t changed much since then, but the perspective of county residents and local government has. He came into the county conservation job after the Milwaukee Journal’s April 18, 1971, issue printed “Poison in Paradise,” an exposé on water contamination in Door County. Don Olesen, a seasonal resident in Door County, secretly collected water samples from bars, restaurants, parks and hotels around the county, finding nearly half of them to be contaminated with bacteria. “It dropped like a bomb in Door County,” said Schuster. “The first thing that happened after that article came out was there were meetings about how do we contain this story.” Fast forwarding to the early 2000s, when 68 swimmers got sick in Peninsula State Park and the Natural Resources Defense Council gave the county the Beach Bum label for beach contamination and closures, the tone of the county’s response changed. “The first thing that happened was that the SWCD was supposed to figure out what was happening, what was causing it and what can we do about it,” said Schuster. “The health department was to start working with the communities to protect people’s health. Think of how different that is.”

The county shifted from containment to solutions and Schuster’s office has been at the helm of solving these water quality problems. Now, water quality conversation is about Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and karst topography. While solutions are still years in the future, Schuster is happy the conversation is even taking place, but warns things will only get more challenging as the dialogue continues. “I’m concerned about a couple of different things,” said Schuster. “I find it distracting to the effort that the social topic of CAFOs versus non-CAFOs gets mixed into the environmental part. I think the distraction of some people who are against the CAFOs because of the social impact, and thus they are active in the water quality, hurts the validity of the effort. Your well doesn’t care how big of a farm the cow came from.” Schuster believes the rules for CAFOs and non-CAFOs should be the same. He thinks the state needs to clarify that county conservation departments have enforcement authority, the authority that Schuster’s office has used to become a conservation leader. He wants to develop geo-regions so areas of the state with vastly different topography have different rules, because the earth is not a level playing field. He still has big opinions on where things should go from here. In the last few weeks of his career, he can see those opinions beginning to play out. In July, the DNR released a plan for rule revisions, “in areas of the state with shallow soils overlaying fractured bedrock,” recognizing the geo-region concept. The same week, Dane County Judge John Markson ruled that the DNR overstepped

“ I ’ve worked in a county that has a deeper environmental conservation ethic than most counties in the state of Wisconsin. That has the political support to run a program that could not have been run in other counties. In many of the counties in the state I would have been fired many times over.”

DOORCOUNTYPULSE.COM  AUGUST 5–12/2016 • v22i32  PENINSULA PULSE 

hen a federal employee from the United States Department of Agriculture showed up at the Door County Soil Conservation office to fill a vacancy, he found a wily young man poring over the office manuals. It was 1979 and Bill Schuster decided he was in charge. Schuster has been in charge for the past 37 years, serving as the first and only department head for the county’s Soil and Water Conservation Department (SWCD). His retirement on Thursday, July 28, marked a change within the department, but not in the conservation ethic and reputation of Door County’s conservationists. “I’ve worked in a county that has a deeper environmental conservation ethic than most counties in the state of Wisconsin. That has the political support to run a program that could not have been run in other counties. In many of the counties in the state I would have been fired many times over,” said Schuster. The support Schuster and his office received gave him the authority to rewrite the rulebook on water quality and that rulebook has become the standard the rest of the state strives to achieve. “This department is, and has been for quite some time, the county conservation department in the state of Wisconsin,” said Schuster. “We are used as an example of how it should be done.” Although today’s conversation centers around terms like karst, CAFO and escarpment, it was Schuster’s studies in the 1970s that laid the groundwork for groundwater conversation. Growing up on Cherry Road in Sevastopol with a family line dating to some of the earliest orchards on the peninsula, Schuster was firmly planted in the bedrock of the county before he got his degree in geology from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Just as he was heading off to Ohio to begin master’s work on hydrogeology, he opened the newspaper and saw a job listing for a county conservationist back home in Door County. “I thought, ‘Hell, you count birds and walk in the woods, that’s got to be a good job’,” said Schuster. Buying his own office supplies out of his $10,500 salary, he was the first county conservationist in Door County, a job that previously fell under the jurisdiction of a federal USDA soil science employee. “I was in this office for five days and had no idea about anything,” said Schuster. “So what I did was all day long I read manuals. I was staying in my parents’ house and I’d bring manuals home and I’d read them at night because I had to figure out what the hell this [job] was.” Schuster was also on his way to a master’s degree in hydrogeology from University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, working under Ron Stieglitz, another Door County native. Knocking on Stieglitz’s office door, Schuster said he wanted to demonstrate the close relationship between groundwater and surface water in Door County. His ultimate goal was to convince the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to include groundwater when it talked about priority watersheds. “It’s hard, you have to be careful looking at things in the past through today’s eyes,” said Schuster, explaining how the DNR didn’t link ground and surface water back then even though the two are inseparable now. “It isn’t like we were running into people of science who didn’t agree. It was just how it came out politically in the first step of a program.” Before Schuster could finish his thesis and get his master’s degree, the DNR

its authority on ignoring a cap on the numbers of cows at Kinnard Farms in Kewaunee, giving weight to Schuster’s argument of county-level enforcement wherever the state falls short. But what happens when the man who started these conversations, who brought groundwater into the minds of the DNR leaves his desk after 37 years? Is there sadness in leaving the dialogue he started? “People tell me I should have that feeling,” said Schuster, smiling. He dunks his teabag into a ceramic mug. “I don’t think my voice is going to disappear. I don’t know how it’s going to emerge, but my voice is going to continue.” Schuster is confident his office is set up to continue just as it always has while the county decides how to reorganize the department. The county has authorization to search for a new department head, but Schuster suggested consideration of a management team consisting of the remaining department employees, who have more than 20 years of experience between them, instead of a department head. He also suggested using his salary to hire another conservationist in the field. “It doesn’t fit well with existing policies and people have a hard time wrapping their heads around how that would possibly work,” said Schuster. “Even if they make the decision to hire, that will take a few months anyhow so the office is positioned to go on. There shouldn’t be a missed step.” As the county wades through these changes, Schuster will make his way to the airport with tickets to Spain, Norway, Nepal and China. When setting up a time to meet on the day of his retirement, Schuster made clear that he would much rather slip quietly into his new nonpublic life. He bristled at the idea of recognition for his life’s work, content to know from afar that every time a Door County resident takes a clean drink of water, it was thanks to him. “You think you know when the big decisions are being made that shape your life, but as you look back in life, you realize that the thing you didn’t think was a really big deal was the one. I think that’s what’s interesting about life. You think you have control about making decisions, but no, that’s not how it goes. “I’m a pretty healthy 62. Unless I get some bad luck, I can lug a backpack through international airports for another 15 years pretty easy,” said Schuster. “I can’t be sitting here thinking of the unfinished tasks because they never will all be done.” For 37 years, that list of tasks has been about the protection of Door County’s water. Schuster has crossed off almost all of them and has written himself a new list.

Sevastopol School Board Members Would Like to Focus on Education Recall election was instigated by group without all the facts by JIM LUNDSTROM jim@ppulse.com

S

ection 12 of Article XIII of the Wisconsin Constitution allows for “qualified electors of the state” to demand the recall of any incumbent elective officer in the state, without offering any justification for the recall. Get enough signatures, and you can have a recall. The case of the Aug. 23 recall election of Sevastopol School Board President Sue Todey and Vice President Bill Behme is a perfect example of why there should be some scrutiny applied to the justifications of those requesting a recall. In this case, the recall was instigated by a group of people who are upset with a unanimous personnel decision made by the school board not to renew the contract of former elementary Principal Mary Donaldson. Because it was a personnel decision, the school board could not say why they did not want Donaldson to return to the schools. Without having access to all the facts, the group started arriving at conclusions that have led to the district spending tens of thousands of dollars in

legal fees and other costs associated with public records requests and the recall election itself, instead of spending that money on education. Knowing some of the background circumstances behind all the uproar at Sevastopol and that Donaldson caused a similar divide in the New Richmond school community where she had been employed earlier in the century, we sat down to hear from the two embattled school board members, Sue Todey, who has spent 10 years on the board, and Bill Behme, who has been with the board for seven years. “It’s been extremely challenging,” Todey said. “Bill and I have gone back and forth. Do we just resign, because this has taken a toll on us individually and with our families? One day we’d talk and say, let’s just call it quits. But there are so many people who voted for us originally and they’re counting on us. And we would get input from people who would say, ‘Stay with it. Help us get through this.’ The whole time it’s been back and forth. Finally we said, nope. When this recall was certified, we said we’re going to give it our all.

Reasons the Recall is Needed

PENINSULA PULSE  AUGUST 5–12/2016 • v22i32  DOORCOUNTYPULSE.COM

Attempts to reach the two candidates opposing the incumbents were unsuccessful. In lieu of that, we provide an excerpt from the Sevastopol Parents & Community United Facebook page: 1. The Sevastopol School Board is currently deeply divided. …A board so deeply divided is the most important reason for the recall. We have hit the dreaded stage where if we say blue, they say red. If we say fine, red it is; they switch to blue. There is no compromise, only stubborn mindedness, and that is not acceptable for our small school. 2. Todey and Behme have done nothing to try and unite the board, or unite the school. They knew about complaints of [former Superintendent Linda] Underwood’s leadership over a year ago and did nothing. Over two dozen letters were submitted by various staff members to no avail. When people wrote letters, Todey told them it is illegal for the letters to go directly to her, that they instead must follow the chain of command through Underwood even though she was the subject of the complaint. Some teachers were even written up for breaking the chain of command for simply attempting to contact Sue Todey…. 3. Behme and Todey have said at board meetings for months that details about Mrs. Donaldson’s leave of absence will never be discussed, disclosed, or released because it is a personnel issue. Suddenly now once there is a recall election scheduled, everything is made public. Why now is it fine for this to come out?  Sevastopol has lost three administrators in the last few months. One was forced out. One was bought out. One couldn’t stand it and

left on his own accord. This is not normal. How did this happen?... Had Todey and Behme not supported Underwood 110 percent none of this would have gotten so far. They were rubber stamps for Underwood even while she was under investigation for harassment and even as they were negotiating her buyout. They knew she ruled with an iron fist, they knew the investigator cited a workplace just shy of a “hostile environment,” they knew dozens of staff wrote letters over a year and half ago about her bully tactics, and yet they put more trust in her than the staff members who have lived and worked at Sevastopol for 10, 15, or 20 years. On top of that they gave her a 10 percent raise to not work next year.…This recall is about what is right for the common good. This recall is about a school that was turned upside down. This recall is about board members who think they are more important to the school than other board members, and more important to school than those who work there every single day. Todey and Behme didn’t do their due diligence when hiring Underwood. They didn’t do their due diligence when others notified them of what was going on. In fact they silenced the people who work at school every day who tried to bring forth concerns. They scorned citizens who asked questions. They blamed instead of taking responsibility. They laughed in the board clerk’s face saying that there would never be enough people that would sign the recall. They tried threatening lawsuits against those involved in the recall.…This is not healthy for our school. Too much damage has been done and we need a fresh start.

Hopefully the folks who come to vote will understand what has happened. We couldn’t talk. Because this is a personnel issue, legally and ethically, we could not talk about this. Everybody else could. But we couldn’t. Our hands were tied on this.” “And on the other side, they have the ability to say anything they want – disparaging, inaccurate and there’s really nothing you can do to defend yourself in that process because you hold what is the truth of it,” Behme said. “They talked about how nobody was listening to them. They sent in these letters and nobody was listening to them. The reality is that we were listening to them, but we were also listening to a lot of other people who have a completely different perspective on this…. When it comes right down to it, we were listening intently to what these people, what these teachers, were having to say, but we had to balance that with all the other things we knew about it in the employment process or in the community, by students, by parents, by teachers. That’s ultimately where that decision came in.” Behme points out that the January vote not to renew Donaldson’s contract was unanimous because of “the preponderance of evidence.” “The one dissenter just did not have enough information. And that’s perfectly fine. That’s due diligence on the part of that board member,” Behme said. “But when it really came right down to it, the vote was unanimous all the way through to put Mrs. Donaldson on a paid administrative leave. It was unanimous when it came to accepting the agreement with Mrs. Donaldson. I was told by some of the folks that the word is that some of these school board members, that they had to vote for it, that there would be some liability if they didn’t. That is absolutely not true. Everybody on that board has the ability to speak their mind, to vote the way they want to. There was no pressure within the group, and it was still a unanimous vote.” Todey said the bellicose nature of the dissent has instilled an atmosphere of fear at the school. “People were fearful. They still are,” she said. “They see the battering some of us have taken at board meetings and they have to work with those people. They’re fearful of the their job situation. If they’re not in the school, they’re fearful for their community business. They’re fearful for their children and what repercussions may come to them.” She said it’s time to get over the drama and refocus on educating children. “We should put aside all of this other information and falsehoods and everything

else that’s out there. All the other drama is insignificant to this goal everybody has,” she said. “We have a great school and we have won national awards consistently. And our students achieve so very, very much.” “It’s the community that makes that happen,” Behme said. “It’s every aspect – the teaching staff, the support staff, the board, the administration, the folks that run the cafeteria and drive the buses.” “And all the taxpayers who strongly support that school,” Todey added. “It isn’t going to be easy, but I am confident we can do it, bring the team back together, all the stakeholders back together and really focus on what this is really all about, and that is providing the best possible education we can for all the kids in the school district. I think we’re at a very exciting time here with the school district. We can use these changes as a springboard. We have a new elementary principal on board.” “She’s fantastic,” Behme said of Principal Kathy Hoppe. “A very experienced woman who knows her way around elementary schools and special education services,” Todey said. “We have Steve Cromell back as our superintendent. Steve was with us for five years and retired. As he always says, he fails retirement all the time. He knows the district. He knows a lot of the staff. He’s a very calming force. We will have a new dean of students shortly when the interviews are finished, and we have a wonderful building plan out there that got put on hold with all of this drama. We need to be focusing on that. Curriculum and technology is a constant challenge. The state has some new requirements for academic and career planning which are extremely positive. There’s a lot to be focusing on and this is what our board needs to do. This is a state budget year. Our school district, along with Gibraltar and the island, get next to no state aid. We need to be focusing on Madison right now. We need to be working with [1st District Assemblyman] Joel Kitchens. It’s critical to our kids and our taxpayers.” Todey points out that the Sevastopol School district’s annual meeting will be held the evening of the recall election, on Aug. 23. “We’d love to have more people come, learn about the district, see what’s happening, and then if they have some input, fine. Let’s do it in a civil manner,” she said. Tim Bley and Keith Volkmann are the candidates advanced by the recall group.

OUR REPS Governor Scott Walker The governor told state agencies he plans to extend the University of Wisconsin tuition freeze in the next two-year state budget he’ll introduce in early 2017. Walker said in a letter to state agencies last week that most should submit budgets for the next two years that don’t spend any more money than they were allotted this year. He said there will be exceptions, including for aid to K-12 public schools, cost increases for Medicaid, the state prison system and institutions run by the state Department of Health Services. Walker also issued similar “no-increase” budget instructions in 2014 and 2012. The UW tuition freeze is in its fourth year. Walker previously indicated he wanted to see the freeze continue. State agency budget requests are due Thursday, Sept. 15. Source: Wisconsin Public Radio Representative Reid Ribble Ribble joined Dan Benishek (R-Mich.), Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Scott Rigell (R-Virg.), and Todd Rokita (R-Ind.) in introducing the Save Our Social Security (S.O.S.) Act, a balanced and comprehensive bipartisan 75-year fix for Social Security. “Social Security is the single biggest step we have taken to reduce senior poverty, and if we do nothing, seniors will see their benefits cut by 21 percent in 2034,” Ribble said. “The problem gets worse the longer we wait, and I am very proud to be working with a bipartisan group of members to put forth a sensible solution today that will preserve Social Security for generations to come.” The S.O.S. Act uses a combination of revenues, benefit adjustments, and raising the retirement age while preserving early retirement to fill the tremendous funding gap. Source: Ribble press release

President Barack Obama President Obama declared Donald Trump unfit for office on Tuesday, calling on Republicans to distance themselves from their party’s presidential nominee. “Yes, I think the Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president,” Obama said at a press conference with the prime minister of Singapore. “I said so last week, and he keeps on proving it. The notion that he would attack a Gold Star family that has made such extraordinary sacrifices on behalf of our country, the fact that he doesn’t appear to have basic knowledge around critical issues in Europe, in the Middle East, in Asia, means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job.” Source: USA Today

Ellen Kate Sprogø-Topelmann died peacefully, surrounded by her family. For 90 years she lived a beautiful, full and happy life. Born in Hamburg, Germany, Ellen was part of a big family that often had to struggle to make ends meet. She lived through the ravages of WWII during her teens in Germany. In 1953, Ellen decided to move to America for a better life. In Chicago, she met her husband, Karsten Topelmann, and the two like-minded artists married in 1959. Their three children were born in Chicago: Tanja born in 1961, an aspiring artist who sadly passed in 1983; Lars born in 1963, a photographer in Portland, Ore.; and Lisa born in 1965, an art historian, curator and teacher in Adelaide, Australia. Summer holidays were always spent in beautiful Door County. In the summer of 1972, Ellen and Karsten opened the Hanseatic Art Gallery. They both painted and filled the gallery with their artwork. Honoring Ellen’s wishes, a family ceremony will be held at a later date. The family requests that instead of flowers or donations that friends simply let memories of Ellen warm their hearts and to not cry because she is gone, but to smile because she was here.

Senator Tammy Baldwin Baldwin and Representative Joe Courtney (D-CT), Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), and Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), were joined by a bipartisan coalition of 57 other members of the House and Senate, in sending a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack asking for assistance for dairy producers struggling with declining milk prices. Specifically, the members are asking for the USDA to use its authority under the Commodity Credit Corporation Charter Act to expand and maintain U.S. domestic markets. “Wisconsin dairy farmers work hard every day moving our economy forward, so we need to do everything we can to reward their hard work by giving them a fair shot at getting ahead,” Baldwin said. “Keeping our economy strong means ensuring our rural communities and farms make it through this challenging time for the dairy industry.” Farm milk prices have dropped 40 percent since 2014, due to both an increase in U.S. production levels and changes in the European Union’s regulation of milk production. In vastly different dairy market regions of the United States, farmers are facing similar margin shortfalls while still adjusting to changes in federal dairy support programs from the 2014 Farm Bill.

• On July 25, Door County Habitat for Humanity closed on the former Kimberley House. The Kimberley House closed their doors in July 2015. In May, the Kimberley Foundation Board of Directors decided to offer the home, located at 33 N. Joliet in Sturgeon Bay, to Door County Habitat for Humanity. Steve Wilkie, Kimberley House board president, said, “With Habitat’s history of success in helping families within our community, the property will be well used.” The Board of Directors of Door County Habitat for Humanity agreed to accept the gift of the former Kimberley House. The first thought was to use the house for partner families, but the home is too large and costly to maintain. The home will be sold and the proceeds used to build more decent and affordable housing in Door County.

A. I have seen the product advertised and wondered that myself. Looking up the product, below are its claims. “Milk-Bone Brushing Chews help provide an easy and effective way to take care of your dog’s teeth. These daily dental treats are clinically proven to reduce tartar and fight bad breath. The revolutionary dental twist bone is designed to help clean even hard to reach back teeth and down to the gumline. Dogs love the irresistible chicken taste of Milk-Bone Brushing Chews and you’ll love giving them a daily dental treat that’s fortified with 12 essential vitamins and minerals including calcium for strong bones and teeth.” Most of the product reviews on the internet seem favorable. Dogs seem to love them, but there are some dogs who get ill from swallowing big pieces or the ingredients don’t agree with them, causing vomiting and diarrhea. The chews have received the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) Seal of Acceptance. This is awarded to home oral hygiene products for pets that meet or exceed the VOHC standard for retarding accumulation of dental plaque or dental tartar. If you go to their website, VOHC.org, there is a list of products awarded the seal along with information on dental disease in pets. When giving any a dog a treat like this it is important to supervise them. If your canine is a gulper, this is probably not the product to use. Swallowing a piece that’s too big could cause serious internal problems such as a blockage. They would also not be getting the benefit of the chew doing the job of cleaning off plaque by gnawing on it. I would research the ingredients in these chews to make sure it is something you are comfortable giving your dog and he can tolerate them. If your canine is not a gulper and will chew it into small pieces you may consider giving it to him as part of his oral care. It will probably not remove existing tartar, that will need to be done by your veterinarian, but it should cut down on more accumulation. Milk-Bone claims that when fed daily they are as effective as brushing a dog’s teeth twice a week. The Veterinary Oral Council recommends daily tooth brushing for optimal effectiveness. So with this information, I would still try to get your dog accustomed to getting his teeth brushed, which is by far the best choice for a canine’s oral hygiene.

Shapiro grew up on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and water has always been a constant in her life and a huge inspiration. She now concentrates on the ancient craft of lost wax casting, which dates back to the Egyptians. Sculptural pieces are carved into hard wax and casted into metal, and rough gemstones are incorporated into Shapiro’s work as a celebration of the beauty of natural imperfection. “Emilie’s jewelry has a loyal following, and her designs are rugged yet delicate and beautiful,” says Fine Line Designs Gallery owner Shari Gransee. “We’re thrilled to have a large body of her work for this twoday trunk show, and we’re excited to have so many of her unique pieces in one place.” For more information, visit finelinedesignsgallery.com or call 920.854.4343.

early age, Carol Schalla, pastel artist, is the featured artist of the week at The Gallery of the Door County Art League in the courtyard at the Top of the Hill Shops in Fish Creek beginning Aug. 6. Art has always been a part of Schalla’s life, from sketching animals as a child, portrait work as a young adult, a long successful career in interior design, and now developing and honing her skills as a pastel artist in retirement. “I have always viewed the world with the study of color at the forefront, so working with the immediacy that pure pigment pastel sticks offers is satisfying for me,” said Schalla. During August, oil painter Karen Lee DeNoto will join Schalla and other Door County artists daily from 11 am to 5 pm in displaying more than 300 works of affordable fine art in a variety of 2D and 3D medias. For more information, email dcalgallery@gmail.com or visit doorcountyartleague.org.

The exhibit features the artwork of painters Rebecca Korth, William A. Suys, Jr., and Tal Walton, jewelry designs by Ed Levin, and sculpture by C.T. Whitehouse. The artists will speak briefly about their artwork at 5 pm in the gallery courtyard. The Courtyard Gallery will be filled with Korth’s realistic oil paintings. Award-winning painter Suys, Jr. is known for both his excellent portrait work and his artistic take on animals and people. Walton paints in oil on prepared ground marble highlighted with gold leaf, which imparts luminosity to the overlaying pigments used. Levin’s pieces are crafted only with the finest metals and stones using age-old techniques. Whitehouse creates simple forms using the lost wax method, and implements controlled tarnishing or oxidation of the metal. Exhibit V runs through Aug. 31. Edgewood Orchard Galleries is located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road, midway between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.3579 or visit edgewoodorchard.com.

On Aug. 10 at 7 pm, Sharon Auberle is the featured reader at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door Sharon Auberle County’s Dickinson Poetry Series. Auberle grew up in the Midwest, exploring fields, woods and waters, often in the company of her grandfather, who passed his love of the outdoors to her. With this heritage, her years of living in the Southwest, and now in Door County, she finds much to draw on in her writing and photography. Besides poetry, photography, collage and paper arts are her passion, samples of which may be found on her blog, “Mimi’s Golightly Café.” Auberle is the author of three books: Saturday Nights at the Crystal Ball, Crow Ink, and EVErywoman; and a poetry collection co-authored with Ralph Murre; as well as collaborations with poets Jeanie Tomasko and Alice D’Alessio, which feature her photography. “Writing memoir helps me to write poetry, and my poems distill the uncountable events of my days down to their essence – the ‘aha’ moments, the joys and sorrows of my life, those things I wish never to forget.” On the second Wednesday of every month the Dickinson Poetry Series features a renowned local or regional poet followed by an open mic and reception. The public is welcome and there is no charge. The UUF is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim. For more information visit uufdc.org or call 920.854.7559.

BLUEGRASS AT PEG EGAN, WISE WOMEN AT WOODWALK Woodwalk Concert Series presents an evening of “Wise Women” in music and dance on Aug. 5 at 7 pm. Singer/songwriters Jenny Bienemann, Carley Baer, Marybeth Mattson and Jeanne Kuhns will perform in Nashville songwriters semi-circle style, taking turns performing their original music on the Woodwalk stage. Local belly dancer from Dancin’ on the Door, Andria Nikoupolis-Weliky will start off each half of the show with dance. Bienemann’s crystal clear vocals, looping talents and innovative guitar combined with

wise and quirky lyrics offer a sense of peace and joy. Baer’s original blend of “folk/pop with a ukulele twist” turns heads everywhere she goes. Dazzling the masses with her crystalclear voice and high-energy performance, she entertains audiences on guitar, ukulele and accordion. Kuhns’ earthy voice floats skywards with a bell-like quality. She writes progressive folk ballads, telling stories about her view of the world with the eye of an artist. Mattson has an edgy, folk-rock voice with a hint of dark in it, lending credence to her deep lyrical content talking about life journeys in a deceptively poetic way. Nikoupolis-Weliky has studied dance since the age of two and teaches various dance forms to all ages. Tickets are $20 cash at the door. Doors open at 5:30 pm. Drinks and pie will be for sale. Call 414.897.6569 or 920.495.2928 for

ticket reservations. For more information, visit jeannekuhns.net or woodwalkgallery.com. Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 Cty. G, south of Egg Harbor. Grammy nominated Dailey & Vincent will be back at Peg Egan Performing Arts Center (PAC) on Aug. 7 at 7 pm. The Dailey and Vincent concert will also serve as a tribute to the late Marian Hislop. Jamie Dailey (guitar, bass, lead and harmony vocals) was hired by Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver in 1998 as lead, baritone and tenor singer and bass player. Three years later he switched to guitar, but he continued to sing lead and harmony vocals on the concert trail and on nine of the band’s albums. During Dailey’s tenure the band won 13 International Bluegrass Music Awards. He has recorded with Dolly Parton and Rhonda Vincent, appeared on five Gaither Homecoming DVDs, and was a

guest on Ricky Skaggs’ Grammy-winning Brand New Strings album. Darrin Vincent (mandolin, bass, guitar, lead and harmony vocals) started singing at age three and playing music at age six as part of his family band, The Sally Mountain Show, along with sister Rhonda Vincent. He has played on Grammy-winning albums by Dolly Parton (The Grass is Blue) and Jimmy Sturr (Top of the World). He has performed and recorded with a multitude of other artists including Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Bruce Hornsby, Vince Gill, John Hartford and Keith Urban. Concerts are free and begin at 7 pm at the Egg Harbor amphitheater located on Church Street. Lawn chairs and carry-ins are welcome.

LEGACY NATURE PRESERVE HIKE, INSECT SAFARI In August, Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay continues to nurture learners of all ages by offering free family programs at 10 am, Mondays through Thursdays. Summer educator Joan Wilkie and naturalist Joel Kaminski will share the teaching responsibilities. Below are dates and topics for the family programs for the week. On Aug. 8, study the amazing journey of migrating birds, then discuss the insects that also take enormous flights, like the monarch butterfly during the “Fantastic Flyers” program. On Aug. 10, go on an “Insect Safari,” and hike into the fields and forests with collecting nets to find the insects and their hiding places. These one-hour family programs, held rain or shine, are free and open to the public. Programs are held at the Collins Learning Center. Pre-registration is not required but if a large group will be attending, Crossroads appreciates advanced notice by calling 920.746.5895.

Hikers will find the two-mile trail easy to walk, with natural wonders for kids of all ages to enjoy. The hike is free, no registration required.

PEN PLAYERS’ LATEST MUSICAL, Q&A AT TAP (1) Peninsula Players Theatre, in conjunction with its production of with the lively, pop-rock musical The Full Monty, will host a pre-show seminar, “How to Produce a Musical.” Greg Vinkler, Peninsula Players artistic director and director of The Full Monty, and Valerie Maze, music director, will host a discussion before the Aug. 5 performance, starting at 6:30 pm in the theater. Tickets to the performances are available; admission to the pre-show seminar is free.

The Full Monty performs through Aug. 14 and contains adult themes, language and nudity. Vinkler has directed several musicals at Peninsula Players including Chicago, A Little Night Music and Sunday in the Park with George. Vinkler made his Broadway debut as Doc in the Tony Award-winning revival of the musical, West Side Story and is a veteran stage performer and director. Vinkler has directed 28 productions at Peninsula Players and has received three Joseph Jefferson Awards (nominated 12 times), two Artisan Awards and an After Dark Award. Maze served as assistant conductor on The King and I, Carousel, The Sound of Music, Oklahoma! and Showboat at Lyric Opera of Chicago as well as assistant conductor and dance pianist for several operas.

(2) Third Avenue Playhouse’s (TAP) summer/

fall season continues with the merry and madcap musical comedy, Madame Sherry, now through Sept. 3. “I got a chance to step in on the Madame Sherry first read-through/sing-through,” said TAP staff member Amy Ensign, “and I couldn’t stop smiling all day.” When a man-about-town’s secret life is about to be discovered by his stuffy benefactor, the ensuing amorous misadventures take him from his Manhattan dance studio to a yacht. It’s music and merriment on the high “C’s” in a show which was one of the iconic hits of its era, but which hasn’t been seen in a professional production in more than 30 years.

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS • 1996–201

INDOOR VARIED SEMINARS AT BJÖRKLUNDEN From Aug. 14-20, Lawrence University’s Björklunden is offering these seminars: “The Apostle Thomas in Scripture” with Bill Urbrock; “Watercolor: The Expressive Medium” with Helen Klebesadel; and “What

Next for Israel in the New Middle East?” with Jon Greenwald. In the New Testament, the Apostle Thomas is featured in only a few episodes in the Gospel of John. He was highly regarded, however, in various early Christian communities and still is renowned as the Apostle to India. The mid-20th-century discovery of the now famous Gospel of Thomas with its “secret sayings” has spurred even more interest in this fascinating apostle. Discussions will center on Thomas in the New Testament as well as on traditions and the

veneration of Thomas in Western Christianity and in the Thomas Churches of India. The watercolor seminar is for novice through experienced artists. Drawing skills are useful but not required. Participants will be a part of a creative community that invites them to experiment with a wide-range of traditional and non-traditional watercolor techniques and learn to create strong, individualized artistic statements. The Middle East seminar will review the factors that make the region more unstable and dangerous than ever and attempt to

assess what it means for an Israel that remains militarily dominant but whose national character may be changing as its religious right gains greater political influence. Seminar classes are held at Björklunden’s lodge, just south of Baileys Harbor, and meet weekday mornings and some evenings. For complete course descriptions, fees and registration dates, call 920.839.2216, email bailey.e.koepsel@lawrence.edu or visit lawrence.edu/s/bjorklunden/bjorkseminars.

A DA to Assure Our Safety with Intelligence, Integrity District Attorney Ray Pelrine has served the citizens of Door County with integrity and distinction for more than a decade and has more than 30 years of experience as a prosecutor.

as well as the finer points of trial and evidentiary procedure. New prosecutors often learn on the job as assistant district attorneys, the District Attorney does not have that luxury. The District Attorney must be able to charge and try the most complicated embezzlement or homicide or drug case, on day one and possess the wisdom to resolve those same cases appropriately, balancing the rights of victims and the needs of the community while holding the defendant accountable. This wisdom accrues over time. Crime victims deserve a District Attorney who can and will prosecute their cases effectively without fear the case will be lost, not because the defendant is innocent, but because an inexperienced prosecutor did not effectively try the case or the conviction is overturned by an Appeals Court because an inexperienced prosecutor did or said something improper at trial. The District Attorney must have the knowledge and experience to answer questions from law enforcement at 2 am after a fatal drunk driving crash or a homicide or burglary or an active shooter situation. It takes years of experience to master the fine points of the law, both statutory and as decided by the Courts. The position of District Attorney is not a popularity contest. No prosecutor is likely to win the congeniality award from those he or she has prosecuted or from a victim who wanted a defendant to get a maximum sentence, when the District Attorney, applying the necessary sentencing factors, recommends a lesser sentence because greater penalties would have been unfair or inappropriate under the circumstances. Please join us in voting for integrity, for District Attorney Ray Pelrine in the August 9th Primary Election. Door County needs an experienced District Attorney to work with law enforcement, crime victims and

the community, to continue to make Door County a safe and secure place for all while providing fairness and justice to those unfortunate enough to be involved with the criminal justice system.

A Church, Reborn Is something missing or coming up short in your life? Perhaps it’s a nagging void that can only be filled with sense of purpose and spirituality. Maybe it’s the opportunity to share common, holy ground with others. Or possibly it’s a nagging need to get together with like-minded people in a communion of sharing, reflection, and thanksgiving…plain and simple. If you believe in the greater good and the power that calls us to come together, please consider Door County People of Faith. Look through our Facebook page for a rather good feeling about what we believe and, well, about what we’re all about (facebook. com/DoorCountyPeopleOfFaith). Here’s how Philip Gulley, a Quaker pastor and writer from Danville, Indiana, expressed it in his book, If the Church Were Christian: • If the church were Christian, Jesus would be not just an object of worship but a model for living; • If the church were Christian, affirming our potential would be more important than condemning our brokenness; • If the church were Christian, reconciliation would be valued over judgment;

• If the church were Christian, gracious behavior would be more important than right belief; • If the church were Christian, inviting questions would be more important than supplying answers; • If the church were Christian, encouraging personal exploration would be more important than communal uniformity; • If the church were Christian, meeting needs would be more important than maintaining institutions; • If the church were Christian, peace would be more important than power; • If the church were Christian, it would care more about love and less about sex; • If the church were Christian, this life would be more important than the afterlife. If this concept of church has caught your interest, please stay tuned…we’ll be sharing more. (And if this concept of a living church does more than just tickle your fancy, please contact me directly to help create an experience where Creator and creation are loving expressions of each other.)

State of Wisconsin attorneys participated in the review process and provided input to Governor Walker and the final decision to appoint not Mr. Pelrine, but a more qualified Mr. David Weber Door County Circuit Court Judge. Attorney Colleen Nordin is vibrant and her platform speaks to the heart of the family. I had communicated to Colleen how I like her idea of diversion programs. Drug addiction and especially heroin addiction is growing in Door County. I am a father that painfully experienced six years of heroin’s attacks on young people. Colleen is on the right path to help those falling into the grips of dreaded heroin. I am voting for Colleen Nordin to be our next Door County District Attorney and she will be fabulous along with newcomer Judge David Weber.

Send Gallagher to Washington

Come See What’s New In Carpeting

It’s rare that I get the chance to know someone personally who is running for office, especially for a congressional seat. When I first met Mike Gallagher about five months ago I remember feeling like I was talking to someone just like me. I could tell he was sincere and shared the same passion I do to see real change in our nation and in Washington. When someone runs for office, their character and sincerity matter to me just as much as the issues do. I can confidently say that as I’ve gotten to know Mike I have found him to be a person of honor and integrity who truly wants to fight for the people of this district. He has the attitude of wanting to serve others, which makes sense since he’s a Marine Veteran. Whether it be leading as a commander of intelligence teams during his two tours in Iraq, or serving as a Human Intelligence/ Counterintelligence Officer and Regional Affairs Officer in the Middle East and North Africa, or now working as a leader in the private sector at an energy company out of Green Bay, he has an impressive background that I believe uniquely qualifies him for the job. He has strong convictions and a moral compass, but has always shown an interest in hearing the concerns of the people he’s talking to. Mike Gallagher is a regular citizen like you and me, who has answered the call by the people of his community to run for office to serve the people of the eighth congressional district. I strongly believe he will work hard to solve problems and will fight to restore power back to the people where it belongs, instead of fighting to keep power in the hands of a few in Washington. I hope you will join me in giving him the opportunity to serve you by voting for Mike Gallagher in the August 9th primary, the first step in sending him to Washington to fight for us.

I have witnessed Wisconsin’s water degradation over an 18-year period as I lived six blocks south of the Wisconsin state line in Warren, Ill. I saw nitrate disclaimer signs appearing in restrooms in Grant, Lafayette, and Green Counties as CAFOs were approved and expanded. Diners, the drive-in movie theater, churches, township halls and gas stations, to name a few. I knew folks who would move to town from their original family farmstead just to have safer municipal water. Pregnant women and bovine drinking high-nitrate levels, assuming their water was pure, would miscarry. Discharges, spills and accidents with manure and water, are a form of trespass. An over abundance of these “nutrients” don’t stop at the edge of a neighbor’s property. Pollution doesn’t stop at a township, county or state line. Having permission to discharge, even with a permit, does not make this ok. The scale of industrial animal operations, concentration of manure produced in one location, makes this a crime against nature. We shouldn’t be expected to compromise our water or hold our breath to accommodate agribusiness over community. I’m a tourist of Wisconsin. I dreamed of retiring to the Door County area. That would be a foolish thing to invest in now. The idea of no swimming or consuming water, due to contamination, throws a wet blanket on vacations and investing in real estate. April 29, 2013 at 1:30 pm, my three children and I were victims of hazardous gases as we headed south from the Wisconsin Dells on Highway12 between Baraboo and Prairie Du Sac. Center pivots spraying liquid nutrients made us close windows and speed faster as we searched

for air that was not burning our lungs and nostrils. When we got a clean pocket of air, the caustic stench happened again. A service van on the opposite side of the road had pulled over with the driver sitting on the ground using an inhaler. He could not even operate his vehicle. This past week my husband and I vacationed in Bayfield, Wisconsin. We chose Bayfield County because it has the cleanest water. We can swim, boat, fish, and drink the water, for now. I am hoping that the good work of the Natural Resources Board to direct the Department of Natural Resources, will pull Wisconsin out of this dysfunctional tailspin before it is too late. Communities enacting local control to create ordinances that protect human health, property values, and tourism, are beneficial to the DNR. Local control lightens the workload for the DNR to stay on budget. Local control is a win for citizens and the DNR. Susan Turner Dubuque, Iowa

(Left to right) Al Duessler receives his check from Sam Perlman, DCEDC economic development manager, for winning the Door County Entrepreneurial Training Program award. Submitted.

BRIEFS • Al Duessler is the winner of the $1,200 cash award for the best business plan originating from the 15th annual Door County Entrepreneurial Training Program course conducted earlier this year by the Door County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC). Duessler and his future business partner Bryan Kuehn are currently employed at a property management company in Door County that specializes in accounting and property management for residential condominium associations. Duessler’s plan involved evaluating and identifying the current market conditions and operational efficiencies to provide a strategy to eventually purchase and grow the business where they are employed. He wrote that the mission of their management firm is to provide industry-leading systematic management approaches to operate condominium associations in a professional and stressfree manner, calling itself “the aspirin for operational headaches.”

Duessler was among the 19 students representing 14 start-up or existing local businesses in the class. “Al wrote an outstanding plan, focused on increasing operational efficiency and growing their business to the next level,” said DCEDC Executive Director Bill Chaudoir. “His plan received some of the highest grades we have ever seen from our judges.” The $1,200 award was generously sponsored by Associated Bank, Bank of Luxemburg, FirstMerit Bank and Nicolet National Bank. The award is to be used for business expenses. The Entrepreneurial Training Program course will again be offered in Door County beginning January 2017. For more information call 920.743.3113 or visit doorcountybusiness. com. • Tara Pierre, a local Edward Jones financial adviser, will host a coffee club at 8 am on Aug. 10 for women interested in learning about financial topics, at GLAS Coffeehouse, 67 E.

The award, given at the group’s annual conference in Pittsburgh this month, recognized WISTAX for its groundbreaking 2015 report, “Evaluating Wisconsin’s Approach to Determining Prevailing Wages,” which examined how Wisconsin calculated prevailing wages used for public sector construction projects. The report received extensive statewide attention and was highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and Forbes. For more information, visit wistax.org.
