THE HAL PRIZE 2018

The Hal Prize At 21 The Hal Prize issue you hold in your hands marks the 21st year that the Peninsula Pulse has coordinated and published this annual contest. And each year, when this issue rolls around, I am amazed at how the contest has grown and, in some ways, surprised that it continues to thrive and flourish. Rather than recap the evolution of the Hal Prize this year, an acknowledgment of the debt that is owed to all the people who have worked on this contest through the years and all the sponsors who have supported the project and the writers/photographers seems not only appropriate, but also overdue. After all, they are the ones who have ensured that the contest has flourished. I won’t bore you with a long list of Pulse employees who have worked on this contest through the years – they have been numerous – but you should know that, as primarily journalists, working with creative writing and photography has been out of character for some. Regardless, they have applied themselves to the contest with the same focus, attention to detail and enthusiasm they bring to every other aspect of their “normal” roles in the company. Likewise, I won’t impose a long list of sponsors through the years (this year’s sponsors are detailed elsewhere in this issue), but there are a few that merit acknowledgments, most notably Jeanne and David Aurelius of Clay Bay Pottery near Ellison Bay. Each year, Jeanne creates one-of-a kind, individually crafted

mugs that serve as the grand prize for each of the four categories in the contest. And she has been doing so for as long as I can remember – possibly all 21 years. Additionally, Write On Door County – and particularly, Jerod Santek – whose involvement has allowed us to attract nationally recognized final judges and to provide week-long stays at Write On’s retreat house to the overall winners in the writing categories and our writing judges. And finally, a note about the photo of my mother and father featured in this issue. This is their engagement photo taken by my mother and then shrewdly used to do double duty as part of her photography class requirements her senior year at Northwestern (my Dad was a graduate teaching assistant at Northwestern, finishing his PhD in English Literature). My mother positioned the camera (which used glass plates), made all the appropriate settings, posed my father, struck her pose, and my Grandpa Grutzmacher, clicked the shutter. The best part of the photo story, however, is that she developed the photograph herself, sharing the darkroom with her “lab” partner, Yul Brynner. And according to my mother, when she hung the photo to dry in the darkroom, Brynner looked it over and said, “Very nice photo, Miss Andersen.”

Honoring Harold (Hal) 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, Illinois), 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.


The Peninsula Pulse would like to thank the generous businesses and individuals that donated prizes to this year’s Hal Prize. Each deserves our salute for their support of the literary and photography community!

PENINSULA PULSE  AUGUST 3–10/2018 • v24i31  DOORCOUNTYPULSE.COM

The Process Many creative endeavors begin with bravery and hope. The Hal Prize is no different. For me, the contest always starts with the bravery and hope of entrants. It takes bravery for writers and photographers – both experienced and amateur – to offer up their work for critique and judgment. When you create something, you show a piece of yourself to everyone; that takes bravery. Hope is essential because you write in hopes that your work will resonate in some way to viewers/readers and judges. The Hal Prize relies on many people to come to fruition but it wouldn’t be as successful without people who are willing to be brave, put themselves out there and hope their work will be recognized. The publication of the issue you see before you is the product of a year’s worth of effort from the organizers here at the Pulse, our collaborator Jerod Santek, executive director of Write On, Door County, entrants, pre-screeners who read through and look at every submission (this year, 429 in total), generous donors who allow us to continue and grow the contest, and, of course, the judges. And with the publication of the 2018 Hal Prize, the planning for 2019 begins. Dates and deadlines will be set. Potential judges will be discussed, selected and interviewed. Pre-screeners have a month to whittle down the selections to send to the judges and the judges have two weeks to make their final selections and write thoughtful commentary about the work. After the final selections are made and compiled, our Creative Director Ryan Miller has two weeks to lay out the special issue, always with his thoughtfulness and attention to detail. I’ve helped put the Hal Prize issue together for the past seven years and with each issue there are more and more submissions to read and photographs to view. I see this as a hopeful and encouraging sign for the growth of the Hal Prize for years to come. In this issue in particular it’s encouraging to see young people recognized; look for the poem “Color Blind” by Kala Lones and the photograph “Pink and Blue” by Lucas Smith, both in this first section. That’s my joy in the contest, being surprised at the range and sources of creativity that are recognized by our esteemed judges. And with these words and the publication of the 21st Hal Prize, I encourage everyone to be brave and hopeful, and enter the 2019 Hal Prize. Submissions will be accepted at TheHalPrize.com now through May 1, 2019.

A note from photography judge Carl Corey

Photography 1st

After 40-plus years of working in the picture business I believe this is the first time I have written about what makes a good picture. This is the basis of how I judge work and I feel compelled to share this with you folks looking at this year’s Hal Prize photography winners. A picture must emotionally connect, it should share content that intrigues, interests and uniquely displays the photographer’s intent. Re-hashing postcard views and good technique won’t cut it. Technique, while very important to master, should never get in the way of content. Joyce’s Ulysses was written with little grammatical technique, but what a masterpiece it is. The same holds in the visual arts. It is all about the content. While it is true that the better you command your craft, the better you can share intriguing content, I would much rather look at an interesting poorly crafted print than a wonderfully crafted boring one. I always encourage young photographers to feel, then see, then figure out their technique for making the picture. I want to see work that adheres to Robert Frank’s mantra of Passion and Purpose. I want to feel the artist’s passion for the subject and the craft. I want the work to have a purpose. This is the criteria I have used to make the selections for this year’s Hal Prize.

THE HAL PRIZE 2018

What Makes A Good Picture?

“Kelly and Victoria III” by Pam Ferderbar This fierce girl rescues abused animals. By the time she was 16 she had earned and saved enough money to buy 19 acres of land – the land she stands on in the photograph – to be used as an animal sanctuary. I tried to capture her “take no prisoners” demeanor in the photograph.

“”

Selected because it is a portrait of strength and integrity. The young girl’s obvious command of the powerful dog conveys her inner strength as she and the dog gaze outward in anticipation. They are ready for what lies ahead and the image serves as a strong metaphor.

Carl Corey

“Still Life” by Tom Mulinix I was hiking at Glacier National Park when I noticed right at my feet was a bird that blended perfectly into the rocks. It stood perfectly still as I took its picture, confident that I had not seen it.

2nd

“”

Conflict, protagonist and antagonist, but who is which? An environmental statement for sure. The helpless humans observing the unrelenting force of the glacier is humorous yet foreboding. How long will we have glaciers like this to observe? Are humans causing the destruction of this mighty force as seen in the flotsam in the foreground? How ironic we destroy that which we admire.

This is an interesting picture as it presents a dichotomy in a stunning visual way. Even the title is a dichotomy: Still Life. The light appears unnatural yet the scene seems so real. The color palette is cold and the scale is visually playful. I am unsure if this is a interpretive diorama or a wildlife photograph. I enjoy the dichotomy and really don’t need to know. This picture questions our relationship to nature and invokes thought in a visually interesting way. Not an easy task.

Carl Corey

“Glacier Up Close” 3rd

“”

by Laura Joeckel I’ve been taking photographs for fun for many years, but get most inspired when traveling to a foreign country. There’s something about looking through a lens to clarify what makes that country beautiful or unique. The Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina is dramatic and accessible.

THE HAL PRIZE 2018

by Steve Tomasko

poetry 1st

Pareidolia “We find human faces in the moon, armies in the clouds; and … ascribe malice or good will to everything, that hurts or pleases us.” — David Hume When I was young and awake in the night sometimes I’d see in the corner of my room a man-like form, an apprehension of rumpled clothes and chair palely lit by star or moonshine, a menace implied, a shadowy notion of the animate. I’d hold my breath, freeze, so as not to betray myself. I was old enough to feel betrayed by my emotions, not believing in nightmonsters, but young enough that the animate and imaginary might blur in the fantasy room of my mind, freeze me like a rabbit under the menace of an owl’s stare. It’s not cloth shadows that make me shiver these days, but people clothed in hatred, who can’t help betraying their own fear of change and see menace in anyone different—face, color or faith. But at night, I take stock of my own tenets, try to make room for my own stains and blemishes. I might animatedly declare myself better than they; my revulsion not for animate beings, but their small-minded thoughts, all while wrapped in the cloth of righteous indignation. Is there room, I wonder, for my contradictions to meet, to not betray me as just one more person who believes they are the knight in tarnished armor who can fight the world’s menaces? I’ve been ill lately. One thing or another. The menaces I battle are my own mid-life fears of mortality, animate as any dragon; my middle-of-the-night anxieties. My wife, if awake in the night, thinks about what clothes she’ll wear the next day. I lie still, eyes closed to not betray my wakefulness. Colors swirl on my closed lids, in a room with no monsters sitting in chairs. I breathe slowly, make room for a vision of our favorite lake. We’re in a gently rocking canoe, no menacing wind. One of us will point to the deer on the other side of the lake, which betrays itself, on closer inspection, to be a small stump shaped like a deer animatedly drinking at water’s edge: an illusion of stick and water, but clothed in imagination it becomes what we want. That night

“Mid-Summer Residency” by Casey Buhr An inordinately wet summer brought a stranger to our home. This grey tree frog spent nearly a week mostly nestled in its cave, atop a tenon in a border fence.

in the tent, no menace but the food-rustling chipmunk outside our nylon room. Loons animate the air with their yodels. We are clothed in each other’s warmth. Nothing is betrayed by the soft thrush of sound running through the night.

“”

This lovely sestina inhabits the form with an unusual naturalness for such a demanding form. A quiet meditation on the nature of fear, “Pareidolia” considers the role of the imagination in both feeding and calming human fear, in a skillful and compelling voice.

Reading Zane Grey The morning my mother discovered me reading Zane Grey, I learned her secret. A horse ranch, she said, I always wanted to work on a horse ranch. She didn’t say own. My mother sold her horse for college. She didn’t aspire to ownership, just one sure-footed climb up a rocky cliff. We lived on a city lot, a dozen steps in full stride to the edge of the drive but my mother was always pushing our boundaries. She worked, for one thing, at a career that had cost a horse, at a time when most women paced their city lots. That’s what I liked about reading Zane Grey. The women. How they end up on a sagebrush flat but managed to find their way. My mother was like that even without her horse.

“Golden Girl” by Julian Ford This picture was taken of my friend Rae in the campus library an hour before closing. The library at around sunset has the perfect lighting which made Rae appear as if she was glowing. I’m a 2016 graduate of Youngstown State University with a bachelor’s degree in general studies. While always interested in photography and videography, I only recently decided to pursue it professionally. When not taking photos of my friends, I photograph weddings and portraits. My work has been featured in Jenny magazine.

A compelling portrait utilizing color to enhance the character of the subject. Golden books frame the commanding eyes of the subject. This picture uses the symbolic wealth of gold to elucidate the value of knowledge, seen as books, and character in the subject. A clever, well executed portrait.

Big Sky, Little Finger Addie’s fist holds fast my little finger this mid-April evening on a street beyond her house. The snow from last week’s storm is steadily melting, leaving perfect puddles along the curbs for splashing, an invitation no two year old can resist. She bunny hops through an inch or so of water, watching the way her boots impact the world, without ever letting go her grip of me—or her wonder that those puddles behind her have refilled. Addie finds this world she shares delightful. She likes, in no particular order, puddles; the trunks of trees standing starkly dark against the snow; two squirrels chasing each other through a tangle of branches overhead while she looks on from below; and the crescent moon hanging like an apostrophe in the sky; but mostly it’s the sky she likes, her hooded head thrown back, so that as she twists she almost falls she’s so excited—but for my little finger keeping her upright.

Singing the Alphabet Now that I know my ABCs, I never sing the alphabet anymore, which is a shame. The sheer joy of it, I remember, welled up and out and over me as we sang— the nursery school tables piled high with those wooden alphabet blocks, uppercase on one side, lowercase on the other. Learning the mysteries of symbol and sound, we gazed toward the foothills of adulthood where people spoke so astonishingly aware of the streams of letters corresponding to whatever they said—their voices rivers of jumbled alphabets! Teachers and parents who could so effortlessly secure with ink the silent sounds and scrawls of their thoughts…. And so we sang, earnestly, proudly, with a tremulous yearning to learn, thinking of those mysterious storybooks the older children read, turning pages like doors, their eyes like flashlights cutting swaths through the darkness.

So I sing, learning and unlearning as I go, now that I know with a knowing that unlocks at least one secret drawer of this labyrinthine world.

Color Blind “I don’t see color” Well then, you don’t see me. You see no arrangement of your words can set me and my ancestors free. You can hop around this topic and say I’m playing the race card all you want. As if It’s my own personal novelty that I just love to walk around and flaunt. You say you don’t see color but that just can’t be. Because you were just rapping to Big Sean in the car, and telling everyone their eyebrows are “on fleek”. You mine your way into my culture extracting what you need, but what about when I need your voice then where will you be? When another black body is slain and laid on the floor, when black mothers weep everywhere, praying for this not to happen anymore. When all you see on the news is black death and gentrification. Then, will you realize this is an unjust nation? I’m tired of this never ending cycle, every time I bring this up, I hear “what about black on black crime” or “but…” Well we’re not killing each other because we’re black, It’s cause y’all put us in the hood, don’t you know that? And anytime we try to make it out y’all quickly claim we’re no good. Got my brothers on the South side seeing these white kids prospering, wishing that they too could. Countless generations of my people are stuck in this trap, but then y’all turn around and lock us up for being entrepreneurs, While white kids get rehab when they’re hooked on crack. Quicker to hand us a life sentence than teach our youth how to write one So we’re left with three choices, become an athlete, graduate and drown in debt or pick up a gun. So you tell me, what you would do if you were raised in that environment? Would you find it so easy to be inspired then? Would you wait for that degree to pay off when you have mouths to feed at home. Or would you do what you had to do, and put that 9 up to his dome? Now I’m not excusing blatant murder, not at all, that’s not me. But I’m just trying to make you understand that these surroundings Result in these vile mentalities.

Drinking Maxwell House in Maui Whether or not this coffee is, in fact, good to the last drop— as the can proclaims— what’s sure is that I am not drinking this “deep and robust distinctly Columbian coffee” in Maui, but in the “Maui Suite” of a B & B in Dayton, Ohio, the rooms graced with surfboards, starfish, pineapples and palm trees, while outside a winter blizzard blows and icicles dangle from the eaves.

which is not at all to say that this coffee is not good to the last drop, nor that an ersatz Maui in Ohio is as insufferable as it sounds.

Post Mortem Me: A Poet’s Lament I have lived my death untold times in weasel words of verse; have conjugated all sense of tense with verbs misused, and worse. I have sought surcease of syntax in infinitives that split and left me hanging by a comma, sounding like a twit. I have passively pursued an active voice just as a ruse to mask grammatical constructions too dense to be obtuse. I think I think, therefore I am philosophically exempt of having my solipsistic side indicted for contempt. I quibble when I mean to make a clearly concise assertion, and compromise the flow of thought, unnecessarily, with insertion. I slather silly syllogisms like tar over the text to elevate and obfuscate the point I’m making next; and when it comes to standing firm on firmly founded facts, I’ll stick a supposition in that has me stumbling back. I try to be all things at once, but nothing noted twice before; for when you’ve deconstructed me, you’ll see that I’m much less, not more.

Red Grapes Your child did not eat the red grapes you sent in a Ziploc bag in his lunch on Friday. And he lied when you asked him if he did. Instead, the bag lay for two days on the ground, and having frozen on a late March Saturday night, this morning it glistens in the warming Sunday sun. Out walking my dog—our usual route past the elementary school—I pause to pick up it up and later toss it with a blue bag of poop into the trash near the baseball field. I’m not sure if I am more bothered by the litter or the wasted food. Or the potential lie. I imagine a fourth grader—he’s nine and chubby and has eaten enough grapes to last him a lifetime. I feel the same about carrots, which I should choose instead of chips that go right to the ring around my waist that strains against my belt. But I don’t. I understand about the shame of extra weight and the inexplicable discrepancy between me and those thin ones who just love running when I am just as happy to sit and read or knit or write. In our climb up the oak-lined lane through the park, the dog curious about each new scent, I worry about the child who thought it better to toss out the grapes instead of taking them home, where likely he would have been forced to eat them as his snack, now all the less appetizing for having marinated all day in their own room-temperature juices in the dark bag on the top shelf of his cubby.

Plain-Work Beckoned to trespass by forsythia and cherries, I stand beneath their branches, wondering if they’re tended, pruned. Shoeless and braless, I’m witness to sticks and flowers, everything necessary. The empty house hastens me on, watching as only an empty house can. The churchyard lies just beyond, and the tombstones are neighborly. Once, they were moved for mowing, gathered, stacked, and put back like scattered seeds.

He knows he will feel the urge to gag on each one, because it has happened just like that before, his mother, hands on her hips, standing over him, expectantly. The other narrative, the one he chose, brings praise instead, maybe even a cookie reward for having eaten his fruit. And so—all is well, and the boy thwomps his backpack stuffed with wadded papers and unread library books to the floor and shuffles off to his room and his Lego table and continues to build a kingdom for Prince Marcus, who will one day raise his scepter to the sky as the mighty ruler of all his eye can see.

Now they sprout among the trees, no remains beneath. In the graveyard, it’s easy to contemplate falling asleep. The pine needles carpet, foxed against my knees. Over the hill, my rooster’s crowing. This yard will not deny me. Down among the wild trees, myrtle blooms. Bees dip in and out, parse their harbors steadily. The earth endures; it bears so easily. Even when I am still, the world will work quietly. How to accept the plain work of this body?

Saving Stobs

fiction 1st

His granddaughter Ruth Ann wasn’t the cutest or the brightest or the fastest, but hers was the only head he saw standing there below. She curled her toes over the pool’s edge and pressed the flats of her palms together just like he’d taught her, to poke up the devil. She tucked her chin and bounced her knees, the tops of her thighs speckled with welts that shone like confetti, welts that came from hitting the pink hula-hoop. “You can do this.” Her instructor in a racerback maillot stood in the pool holding out the hoop. “Come on, Ruth Ann. Let’s see you dive. On my mark.” Her mouth on the whistle, and Sully could taste that whistle, the tang of its sweet metal end and the floating cork that vibrated his lips. Sully straightened his ball cap and whispered under his breath, “Come on, Ruth Ann. Just this one time, do it.” She was about to do it when a blonde in a ruffled suit shouted, “She can’t do it. She doesn’t know how.” Ruth Ann screamed and thrust off with her feet, “Yes I can too!” Her body spasmed in midair—her head went up and her hands went down— and this time it was her mouth that smacked the hoop. It flipped over her head as her body hit the water like a cupped hand. She flailed and coughed and spit out blood. “Let’s see it,” he said to her later, standing outside the locker rooms with her mother. Ruth Ann lifted her chin. Her bottom lip swollen and cut, the chip in cover The 2018 Hal Prize photography second place winner, “Still Life” by Tom Mulinix.

her front tooth the size of a peanut’s heart. “Aw, that’s nothing,” he said. “That’s itty bitty. Won’t hurt you none. Now go on, hit the showers.” For 35 years Sully Stobs had served as the physical fitness officer, training the young cadets who came through Fort McCoy. He taught discipline and strategy and believed anyone could change anything if they really wanted to. On his walls hung the posters of silhouetted athletes in victorious mountaintop poses; his screensaver flashed a show of motivational quotes. “What’s wrong with her?” he said to his daughter when Ruth Ann left. “You saw. She can’t keep her head down. Every time she tries to dive, she belly flops. I think she’s afraid of water.” “No, that’s not what I saw.” He shook his head, “Our Ruth? She’s a scrapper, that one. She’s a fighter.” “Well, they won’t let her pass onto the next level and I can’t keep paying for lessons. I’ve got two more to put through.” Sully told her he would take care of it because he was retired now, what else did he have to do? Every morning he rose at first light, laced up his sneakers, and walked down to the fitness center where he didn’t have to show his military ID, but he did anyway, regulations. He ran his five miles and bench pressed two-twelve. Not bad for seventy-three. Ruth Ann turned ten, and Sully looked up the YMCA skills requirements for the next level’s swim test.

“Are you afraid of the water?” he asked her one day after picking her up from school. “It’s okay if you are. You can tell me.” “I’m not afraid,” she said. And he believed her. “What do you say you and me work this out? I’ve always wanted to do a triathlon. We can train together.” Ruth Ann thought that would be okay. He picked her up three afternoons a week and took her down to the fitness center as his guest. That summer the two of them did laps in the pool where he coached her through the front crawl and the back crawl and the breaststroke for 50 meters. In the fall Sully drove his granddaughter back to the YMCA and approached the swim instructor. “Look here,” he said. “My granddaughter has been working hard all summer. She can do every single stroke that she needs to pass this class, and she’s taken Minnow three times. So she can’t dive through a hoop,” he shrugged, his shoulders fit under the tight weave of his shirt. “Big deal. It’s not like she’s going to drown.” Ruth Ann Stobs was admitted to Big Fish. During the second week of class, Sully from up in the grandstands watched as she tugged down her swimsuit and stepped up the grit pads of the ladder. The diving board rose twenty feet into the air. He sprang from his seat to let her know that he was there, but he moved too fast and something in his left knee popped. He clutched his kneecap like a football

and watched from a bent position as Ruth Ann walked out to the tip. Through sun rays that lit on the water in lambent flares, the voices of her swim instructor and peers floated up to her from where they shouted below. “Keep your head down!” “Tuck in your chin!” “Look at your toes!” She swung her arms, pointed her hands, and sprang from the board. Her body curved and her head went down, and then—that something inside of her uncoiled. It happened against her will, he saw, the way it straightened her body and snapped her head up. She smacked the water flat, like a steak in a hot iron pan. Sully Stobs rose from his seat as his granddaughter like a lead ball sank. She didn’t come back up. The lifeguard on duty dove into the deep end and towed her to the water’s edge. Ruth Ann’s skin aflame bright catsup red as all around the swimmers who were her classmates gathered and stood agog. “You’ve done it now,” his wife Jean said at dinner. “You shouldn’t have interfered. That poor girl. She’ll never go in the water again.” Sully couldn’t sleep. He tossed and turned and his left knee throbbed. He put his mind over his body like he’d done his entire life, until one morning something in his knee blew out and against his will Sully Stobs went down. Way to go, he thought. His surgery was scheduled for a Wednesday that fall. Ruth Ann turned 11 and did not pass her Big Fish swim test. Sully when he heard flipped over the dining room chair. Already a second surgery for his other knee had been scheduled for May. At his physical therapy sessions they gave him a cane. He took it to poke the feet of little Stob children who talked back to their mothers. At the annual Stobs picnic at the lake that summer he sat with a blanket useless over his lap while the littlest Stobs ran around in the green grass and the older ones swam out to the large platform slides. His granddaughter eyed the water suspiciously, stayed on the beach, toed the sand. He still got up at 5 am, hobbled over to the fitness center and read the notices hung on the walls. He went to get out of Jean’s hair and because he needed somewhere to go. He went and the clouds scudded above and the jet contrails wrote out giant Ys in the sky blue above. That summer Ruth Ann was 12 and one year into middle school. She still hadn’t passed Big Fish. It was a Monday night and Sully Stobs laced up his running shoes. “Now what are you doing,” Jean wanted to know. “Why do you have that whistle around your neck?” “I’m taking Ruth Ann to the pool.” “Why waste your time? She’s not a swimmer. Let her be.” “I’m not wasting my time. She can be anything that she wants to be.” He showed up at Ruth Ann’s house and handed her the flyer. After she looked it over, he told her, “I’ll take you if you want to go, but it’s completely up to you. I won’t think less of you either way.” The class was at the outdoor pool on the other side of the base, taught by a Marine who ran a lifeguarding skills course. A lot of youngsters showed up, all of them taller than Ruth, most of them boys. Sully waited in the car with the windows rolled down while his granddaughter stood in line outside the pool gate. The coach had a crew-cut and wore a white shirt and a whistle just like

standing there by the gate. He nodded and touched the brim of his hat. “I’m a genius,” he told his wife, getting in bed. That night, he made love to Jean good and proper for the first time since his surgeries. Ruth Ann’s final test came at the end of August on a warm purple night, and Sully Stobs was in attendance. He sat with his cane in one of the lounge chairs poolside in the shadows. The candidates lined up in their Speedos. One person played victim, the other lifeguard. One by one they jumped into the pool, pretended to drown, and saved each other. Coach signed their certificates and off they went to the showers. Everybody passed. Only Ruth Ann Stobs was left. “Looks like you’ll have to save me,” Sully threw down his cane and fell into the water. He went into the deep end, shirt, shoes, and all. Bugs bobbed through the glow of the pool lights as he hollered in a mock falsetto voice, “Help me, please, help me!” Then he realized, he couldn’t kick his legs. The new knees, they didn’t quite work like the old ones did. His muscles spasmed, he swallowed water, gurgled, sank. Ruth Ann kept her head up and entered the pool. She saw where her grandpa went down and made her way over to his pink churning mass. He swatted her with his forearms and dunked her under just like coach said a drowning person would. Ruth Ann took the blows and went down. She curved around his whaling torso and slipped an arm across the bulkhead of his chest. Their heads popped up through the water’s surface together. “It’s okay, Grandpa. I got you now,” she side-stroked and sputtered. “It’s going to be all right now.”

Fierce and determined girls are not, as the media might have us believe, a recent development. I’ve known them all my life. In this original and wonderfully developed story, a sweet grandpa pushes his young granddaughter to persist in the face of difficulty. Given the chance she needs, Ruth Ann shows that all his hope for her has found a worthy recipient, and the result is a character you root for from page one, and feel vindicated for your hope in the end. I loved this story from first word to last.

Sully had in his prime. He looked down at her military I.D. “How old are you?” “Twelve.” “Sorry, kid.” He shrugged, “I can’t let you lifeguard until you’re 15. Come back in three summers.” “No thank you.” Ruth Ann stuck out her chin. “I don’t want to be a lifeguard; I want to be a strong swimmer. Please, can you let me go through the training?” Sully from his place in the car mouthed the words. “Tell you what,” the coach said. “I’ll let you stay for as long as you keep up. But I can’t give you any breaks, kid.” Almost half the swimmers dropped out after that first night. Coach made them swim a mile the short way across the pool, and each time they got to the end, they had to get out of the water. Ruth hoisted her wet body up over the ledge of that pool, stood up, and jumped back in. She was the youngest and the slowest and the last to finish her mile every night, but Ruth Ann Stobs did not quit. The second week coach had them line up around the pool. In the clear, still twilight he bellowed the words, “Tonight, we’re going to learn The Saver’s Dive.” From where he sat in the car, Sully’s ears pricked up and he got out to watch. Ruth’s hands tightened into fists by her dripping sides. Coach held up his arms, made a wide sweeping motion with his hands, and showed them how to brake in the water. Then he shouted the words his granddaughter never expected to hear. “Keep your head up! You can’t save a drowning victim unless you keep an eye on where they are.” Ruth Ann from across the way turned and found her grandpa

All this talk was unknown to the boys. What they knew was a hole was in their former kickball field and that hole would someday be their school. Salman slapped the stop sign first and turned to holler at his little brother. It was a good morning to be out. The remnants of a hard winter nearly gone: snow-covered dog crap and dead or lost objects found. There was an old story their dad told them about his no good friend who never cleaned his yard. The story was supposed to shock them into cleaning up after themselves. They’d never forget the scare of the first big melt, which could unearth dark forgotten things. Their dad laughed as he told them the story: he’d said, “Jim ya need to start picking up your yard,” when shoes were first discovered and then laughed more when Jim left the shoes ‘til first spring when they found the shoes were attached to a body. It left an impression on the boys but not that of cleaning. And they always kept their eyes open to the possibility of things under the snow or dirt. Now it was spring. People could come outdoors without a barrier against the wind. Tulip heads pointed upward like missiles ready to explode. Salman let go of Lucy’s leash and she tore off toward the fence around the hole. More like a trench Salman said to Anders, who agreed. An excavator had been parked inside the fence ready for digging. It looked like a dinosaur neck and toothy head. They clung to the fence and admired the big bolts, Caterpillar treads, boom. “Wonder if it will move,” pondered the little boy. “Nah, needs a driver,” said his brother and picked up a stone, aiming. Both were finding stones along the fence line. They threw rocks through

the openings. Many spun off and hit the dirt beside them. Lucy whined and paced, confused by the boys throwing objects to a place she couldn’t get to. She wanted to be at the center of the boys’ world. Finally she found an area in the fence with a little give. She scratched and dug the earth while the boys argued over whose stone got closer. When her hole was deep enough, she wriggled beneath and in front of the trench looking for what it was the boys were throwing. She leapt and yipped for them to throw more. The boys stopped and stared at Lucy. Here a tall fence with signs. There an unknown trench. There an ugly machine. “Lucy! Come!” shouted Salman. They tried to whistle but she would not come. She jumped in and out of the trench as the boys became more and more desperate. Then she jumped inside the trench and disappeared. “You wait here,” Salman said to Anders. He took off his backpack and set it beside the fence before he began his struggle underneath it. Anders watched and put on his older brother’s pack. The broad street behind was empty. Behind the street, the cemetery. Those town sleepers frightened the little boy. In front of him, the large-toothed machine. Anders watched as his brother climbed inside the trench and disappeared. “Salman,” he cried. Salman’s head popped up, “She’s found something. Something good.” Anders wiped his eyes and nose with his sleeve, but his fingers clenched the chain links. Salman and Lucy couldn’t be seen for several minutes. His heart beat faster. Finally Salman’s head rose again. The boy and dog were dirt-covered. An odd stick hung from either side of Lucy’s maw. Using his body, Salman tugged the dog back to the fence. A concave slab in one hand, face grimy and grinning. Once Salman came close enough, he whispered, “I think it’s a dinosaur bone.” Anders’ eyes widened. “And I found something too,” Salman flashed the smooth object in his hand. Neither was sure how to get the dog back under the fence with the long bone in her mouth. “I have a peanut butter sandwich in my pack,” Anders said. “Give it here then.” The little boy dug out a baggie. Lucy dropped the bone and snapped up the sandwich. Salman pushed the bone beneath the fence. “Grab it,” Salman said. Slick with saliva, the bone was difficult to shove inside his backpack, but Anders fumbled and zipped it shut. Lucy crawled under. Salman followed more slowly, the large piece in front of him. Salman lifted the pack off his brother, shoving the piece inside the front pocket where its smooth head stuck out. He slid the lopsided pack on front. Anders grabbed Lucy’s leash. She’d given up looking for her bone. His face was red-splotched, but he was happy to have his brother back even with the strange finds. “What you think that is?” he asked Salman, pointing at the strange plate. “Maybe armor,” said Salman walking toward the cemetery instead of back to Kikkan’s. “Maybe a helmet,” Anders said excitedly, following Salman. “Where we goin’?” “Think we should hide ‘em.” “What about at Kikkan’s?” Salman kept walking. Lucy followed, pulling Anders forward.


THE HAL PRIZE 2018

“This stuff is better. We need to do experiments on it in private.” Anders couldn’t stand by the fence alone with the trench and the big machine, but he didn’t like the cemetery either. Uncle Mike was the only one he knew in the ground over there, and Uncle Mike underground was a lot different than Uncle Mike above ground. They crossed the street and walked through the gates. The paths were shadowed by cedars. At the farthest end of loop where the old gravestones had been heaved up by frost, Salman said “here” and pointed up to an enormous cedar. The old tree had low-slung limbs, making it an easy climb. Anders watched as Salman and the backpack moved up and imagined

all the spider webs and insects. He shivered. He wondered if the tree were as old as their dad. Salman hung the backpack round a branch. He picked his way back down. “You left your backpack up there,” Anders said. “Fine. I’ll find another bag and we’ll switch them later today.” Anders didn’t want to come back to the cemetery later today. He wanted to play at Kikkan’s and buy cereal for supper tonight. First Salman had ruined his clothes and found weird things. Now his brother’s school bag dangled from a cemetery-tree. But Salman knew he’d found prized objects adults could want, and he’d never really found anything so special before.

I love stories that capture the innocence of childhood, and this tale of two down-on-their-luck boys and the grown-ups who love and support them is a perfect example of why I do. This story is sentimental but honest. It captures a kind of camaraderie that only brothers and best friends could ever know. And it doesn’t spare the hardscrabble realities of their lives. A real winner.

Hail Mary I didn’t recognize the number on caller ID. The name was blocked so I let the call roll into voicemail. It was evening before I listened to the message. “Hello, Norman.” I recognized her voice instantly. Besides my mother and the nurse at the health clinic, she was the only person who always called me by my full name. “It’s Mary,” she said needlessly. “I need to talk to you. Please call me.” A silence. “Please?” I debated overnight whether to return her call. Before I made my decision, the phone rang again the next morning. This time along with the number, the name Chester Williams appeared on the phone’s screen. I answered anyway, knowing it would be her. “To what do I owe this pleasure?” I asked after we’d exchanged pleasantries, adding to myself, “as if I didn’t know.” “He wants to see you.” “Then why didn’t he call?” She hesitated. We both knew the reason why. “He doesn’t know you’re calling me, does he?” I said. Another hesitation. “No.” “Haven’t you learned anything over the years?” I asked. “Apparently not,” she admitted. “Have you?” “Well, they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” There was another silence. I heard her take a deep breath. “Norman, you once told me it took a lot to get on your bad side, but when someone finally did, they may as well order a cemetery plot.” Her tone was equal parts of irritation and pain. “Well you got your wish. They found prostate cancer. It’s terminal.” I’d heard the rumors. Ashland, Wisconsin, is a big enough town that Chet and I could generally stay out of each other’s way but small enough for us to hear about each other’s business, whether we wanted to or not. Still, hearing Mary deliver the grim news made me hesitate before old resentments overruled my sense of decency. “I’m sorry,” I said. “I’m not sure it changes anything.” “Don’t you think 20 years is long enough to carry a grudge?” It was my turn to be silent. “Call me heartless,” I said finally, “but I think shooting a gun at me qualifies for permanent residence on my bad side.”

“That was then,” she said. “He’s changed.” We’d been through all this before, back when the incident itself occurred and again years later when he made his attempts to apologize and I’d refused to listen. Some sins are unforgivable. “He’s a different person now,” Mary insisted. “We’ve had good years since he went through treatment. When was the last time you actually talked to him? You don’t know how he is.” “I know how he was,” I said. “Look,” she said, “he just wants to apologize. To make amends. Step nine in his 12-step program. You’re the last person he hasn’t made amends to. He doesn’t talk about it anymore, but I know it bothers him. He feels bad about it.” “He should.” “He tried before, you know.” “I know.” Mary knew she wasn’t getting anywhere. “Well, I’ve said my piece. I hope you’ll see him—while you still can. At least think about it. I’m hanging up now, before I start to cry.” “I’ll think about it,” I said to be polite. “Well, that sounded like an interesting conversation,” Jean said after I hung up. My wife has a gift for understatement. She knew the whole sad story, but it had never gotten in the way during our marriage. I filled her in on Mary’s side of the conversation. “So are you going to go see him?” Jean asked when I finished. “I don’t know.” “What would it hurt?” “I don’t know.” “Sure you do,” she said and left it at that. Jean knew me well. I did know. I confess to a fondness for streaks—the number of wins the Packers have in a row, the consecutive games in which a batter gets a hit. My stubborn streak was no exception. Jean’s silence on the issue carried with it the price tag of me having no one to talk to about it. When I need to figure something out, by instinct I’m drawn to the lake. In Ashland our little part of Lake Superior is called Chequamegon Bay. I drove to Maslowski Beach just off Highway 2, where I like to walk in the sand. Here, under the infinite blue sky where the bountiful land and the brooding expanse of water meet, all human problems are dwarfed. I think of how the sand beneath my feet was once rocks, broken down by the endless

motion of the waves across eons of time. Chet’s illness came as no real surprise. After all, we were all playing in the fourth quarter, cashing our monthly Social Security checks. Instead of going to the doctor for cures, we were learning how to manage age-related maladies, any one of which could suddenly flare up and call us home. I spent an hour watching the lake, thinking through the past four decades, revisiting territory I’d worn a path through over the years. Back in the day, Mary, Chet, and I had been a triangle. The two of us had met Mary on the same night. We were in our mid-twenties then, more brash than polished. Right out of the gate, I’d convinced myself I was the right angle of that triangle, but eventually Mary picked my best friend over me. He’d rewarded her love and devotion by cheating on her several times during their first 20 years of marriage. Quietly, I carried a torch for Mary for years, never marrying because I figured the two of them would never last. It mystified me that he could treat a woman as fine as Mary so badly. It further mystified me why she always forgave him, accepting his apologies and promises to reform. Chet and I exchanged words over his treatment of her more than once, nearly exchanging fists a couple of times. Somehow we’d remained friends. Some men are unable or unwilling to curb their appetites. Chet was one of them. By our middle forties, he was a successful building contractor who had also developed a reputation around town as a heavy drinker and womanizer. I’m a licensed electrician. I’d stopped bidding on his projects, telling myself it was best to keep my personal and professional lives separate. But it was more than that. “Why do you stay with him?” I asked Mary after hearing a story around town that Chet was sporting one of the coeds who attended Northland College. “Two reasons,” she said. “One’s a boy, the other’s a girl.” But I knew it was more than that. Chet must have thought Mary would never leave him, but she did that time. Temporarily. Claiming she was going to visit her sister in Wausau, she left the kids with him so they could stay in school. That same week, I saw Chet and his coed having a late dinner at the Hotel Chequamegon. I asked him

how his wife was these days and the coed fled. He was furious with me. The next day, I drove out to their house on the edge of town, determined to talk—or beat—some sense into him. I pulled into their gravel driveway and stopped. Before I even shut my pickup’s door, Chet came out onto the porch holding a deer rifle and ordered me off the property. When I didn’t leave immediately, he raised the gun to his shoulder. The bullet hit the trunk of the evergreen behind me, and I saw a chunk of bark fly. I climbed into my pickup and drove off. As they say, alcohol was involved. Chet was a good enough shot that if he really wanted to hurt me, he wouldn’t have missed. Still, I was enraged by his behavior. The recklessness of it, the obscenity. We’d been friends for 20 years. Drunk or sober, there were certain things you just didn’t do. The incident generated plenty of juicy gossip around Ashland for a while. When she returned home, Mary called me to apologize but I was in no mood for her excuses. I told her I was through with him. With both of them. For her sake, I’d declined to press charges but I’d told the sheriff to tell Chet that if he ever came near me I’d file a complaint and have him arrested. In cutting Chet loose, I also finally let go of Mary, which opened new doors for me. Behind one of those doors was Jean, a divorcee from Bayfield I met through a dating service. On our first date I told her the whole story, knowing sooner or later she’d hear some version of it on the street. We married six months later. But the sound of that gunshot never really left my ears, echoing through the next 20 years like summer thunder rolling across the landscape. Years later, after he took the cure at some treatment center in Minnesota, Chet called me himself, but all I could hear was the crack of that rifle and the plunk when the bullet hit the tree trunk. Chet and I lived parallel lives. Around town, people made allowances, putting us on different planning committees for our annual Bay Days celebration. The Williamses and the Schusters were seldom invited to the same party. Whenever Chet and I met on the street or ended up in the same room, we ignored each other. These days, I seldom thought of him, of them. Jean and I were happy together. The good portion of my

life had grown around that night, encasing it like a knot in wood. I kicked at the sand with my toe. It was more than stubbornness, more than maintaining my streak. Chet always did whatever he wanted at the expense of everyone else and got by with it. Mary had stuck with him all those years, for better or for worse, apparently still seeing within him whatever had made her choose him in the first place. Yet, for all his appetites, Chet now had regrets, unfinished business. And here was Mary asking me to be the receiver of a Hail Mary pass thrown on his behalf. I climbed back into the pickup wondering if I had unfinished business of my own to address before the Grim Reaper dropped his business card on my desk. At the Country Kitchen, one of the morning coffee crew noted that Chet had turned his contractor business over to his son and was staying at home. “He looks like death warmed over,” he finished. He noticed me and changed the subject. “Well,” Jean asked when I returned home. “You get things figured out?” “Nope. Still figuring.” What makes you change your mind? Not logic, certainly. You mull over something for weeks, years even, one rock grinding against another. Eventually everything gets ground into sand. You go to bed at night feeling one way and get up the next morning feeling another. I couldn’t explain why, but one morning I got up knowing it was time to end my streak—before I lost the chance. After all, some sins are unforgivable. Was I surrendering for Chet or for me? Did it really matter? “I think I’ll go see Chet today,” I told Jean over breakfast. Her expression registered neither approval nor disapproval. “Take one of those pies I baked yesterday with you,” she suggested. “The cherry with the throw-away pie tin.” I drove out to the Williams’ house. The gravel driveway had been blacktopped, a sign of Chet’s prosperity through the years. Behind me, the evergreen had grown, but I could still see a blemish on the trunk where the bullet had blown away the bark. Before I even opened the pickup’s door, I heard the front door of the house slam. At the house, Chet, a pale ghost of himself, was standing on the porch, his hands in his pockets. Smiling.

Sins of Contrition “Do you mean ‘acts of contrition’ or ‘sins of omission?’” I ask Paul, my seat-mate. “I mean ‘sins of contrition,’” he says. We are somewhere over the Atlantic on our way from London to Boston. The detritus of the food service has been cleared away, and the in-flight movie has thankfully come to an end. The action flick’s chase scenes along with turbulence combined to make my processed chicken dinner churn in my stomach. The flight is not crowded and most of the other passengers are drowsing beneath thin airline blankets or reading trashy novels in the glow of their overhead lights. Paul has his own reading light on, which doesn’t make the sunglasses he continues to wear any less pretentious. He is well dressed in some brand of gray, designer-label suit, the jacket of which is draped over the empty seat in front of him. The light is focused on his freshly pressed white shirt complete with gold cufflinks embossed with a coat of arms. He wears a pair of incongruous snakeskin boots. I have the aisle seat, he has the window. Between us on the tray of the unoccupied middle seat are several empty miniature bottles of brandy. We have the contents of the last two of them in our plastic glasses and Paul has his eye out to get us refills. He says he’s a TV producer. I think he’s bullshitting me but he insists on paying for the drinks, so I’m cool with it. He flags down the flight attendant on her way to the galley. He waggles one of the empty bottles. “Last call,” she says, eyeing our empties. “In that case, make it a double for both of us,” Paul says. Once we settle back in with our drinks resting on the tray cleared of our empties he continues, “It’s going to be a reality show.” “What is?” I ask. “Sins of Contrition. It’s about people who do bad things in order to do good,” he explains. “It’s sort of an ‘ends justifies the means’ kind of thing.” “Doing good isn’t the same thing as being contrite,” I say. “True,” he says, “but it’s a catchy title. We’ll have a line or two of voiceover at the beginning of each episode, or maybe a theme song, to explain the premise. For the pilot we’ve got a guy who embezzled money to pay for his wife’s cancer treatment.” It takes me a moment to understand that the pilot is the supposed first episode of the series, not the person in the cockpit. It was just a month ago, although it seems like much longer, that the care facility my mother was living in called me before dawn one morning. She had started moaning and clutching her stomach. She had

been slowly declining both mentally and physically for some time and the decline accelerated during her final months. She hadn’t known who I was for a couple of years, and in her last weeks was barely able to talk. She had virtually given up eating. When the pain began she was unable to say what the problem was and simply rocked from side to side in her bed. The facility helped arrange hospice care, which started that same day thanks to a couple of frantic phone calls I placed. Someone else might have rushed her to the hospital and insisted on x-rays and exploratory surgery, but she was 93-years-old and putting her through that seemed cruel. What surprised me was the open secret that administering morphine for her pain would end her life. The caregivers at the facility told me as much, and the hospice workers explained how the drug would slow down her body’s functions to the point where they “might not be sustainable.” She died the next night. My mother’s name was Elvis. Once the other Elvis got popular she had to keep a copy of her birth certificate in her purse to be sure that cashiers would take her checks. She claimed her name should have been Elvis Really, because that’s what everyone said the first time they met her. Late one afternoon shortly before she died I arrived to find her in the facility’s common area. She was sitting in her wheelchair being serenaded by an Elvis impersonator who was holding her hand while softly singing “Love Me Tender,” to her. It was beautiful and awful. I walked quickly down the corridor to her room to get some Kleenex and compose myself. When I came back the faux Elvis in his white jumpsuit and oversized sideburns was gone. I took some of the money my mother left me to travel in Ireland, although I felt like I shouldn’t enjoy a trip so soon after her death. So I didn’t enjoy the Cliffs of Moher, the music in Galway, or the golf with rented clubs in Kilkee. The only part of the trip that really spoke to me was a drive through the Burren – that desolate, rocky landscape in which you expect to see a mad old Celtic monk tearing out his hair, or Cú Chulainn constructing a dolmen for his dead son, or a banshee flying over a stone fence. I went there because mother’s relatives emigrated from Ireland, although the family history tying us to the old country is lost. Once, I asked Mom if she had any photographs of her ancestors. Together, we pawed through a cardboard box of faded pictures that had been in the back of a closet since her own mother’s death several years ago. In a leather-

covered album we found a tintype of a diminutive, carefully-dressed man standing on a footstool, his right hand tucked Napoleon-like in his vest. Below the picture in fading, spidery script was written, “The Family Dwarf, Killarney.” At the cemetery, after a brief service in cold March sunshine, everyone hurried back to their cars. A few feet away from the grave, I turned back to take an extra rose from the bouquet that topped her casket and there he was, almost hidden among the rows of folding chairs. The Family Dwarf was more formal, somber and grief-stricken than any of the mourners. He looked at me reproachfully with his zinc-colored eyes. “Are you okay?” Paul asks. It’s the same thing the undertaker had asked me as I stood on the artificial grass surrounding the grave. It takes me a moment to untangle myself from the memory, from the glare of the Family Dwarf who had disappeared when I turned back to him after assuring the undertaker I was alright. “Sure,” I say, “I just need to use the john.” Before I’m ready to head back to my seat I wash my hands in the toy sink and splash what meager water I can coax out of the little faucet onto my face. Looking at myself in the smudged mirror I for a moment don’t recognize myself. I look like someone who resembles me, but in a blurry, barely passable way. I walk unsteadily down the aisle. Paul has four more little bottles of brandy on the tray. “Different stewardess,” he says, handing me two of them. We pour the contents into our plastic glasses and toast each other. “So what’s your story?” he asks. “Pitch me.” Again, it takes me a moment to understand that he wants me to tell him a story idea for his television show, and not get out a baseball and start playing catch in the aisle, or maybe take him by his starched collar and calfskin belt and toss him from the emergency exit out into the darkness. But then I do. I tell him about Elvis and the dementia and the impersonator and the morphine and the Family Dwarf. Partway through my story he grabs his jacket, takes a silver pen out of a pocket, and starts scribbling notes on a couple of the insubstantial airline napkins. “This is good,” he says. “Not good good, you know, but good.” He says he has someone in mind to play me in in the recreation, an actor he represents who is currently filming a series of commercials for a new prescription drug. “He can really act, although for the commercial he just has to look good as a voice-over artist runs through the list of side effects.”

I fall asleep while he’s telling me how excited he is about my misfortune, and wake up just as the pilot is telling us that we are about to begin our descent. It’s light outside the windows and Paul is shaving, using a tiny electric razor and the mirror from a makeup compact. He looks disconcertingly fresh and wideawake.

flights. I ask him if there’s any chance I could play myself. He shrugs. “Once people get the chance to see how they look, most folks don’t want to,” he says. “We’ll be in touch.” Part of me is sure he won’t call, another is afraid he will. I watch him walk away until he is lost in the crowd of people hurrying to their gates, or trying to find the exit.

Anyone who’s ever had an unwelcome seat-mate on a trans-Atlantic flight will appreciate this brief, surprising story about a man whose life story captures the imagination of the guy sitting next to him, who just happens to be a reality television show producer. What ensues is a quiet reflection on the fragility of life, and how we might conduct ourselves when those we love lose theirs.

cover The 2018 Hal Prize photography third place winner, “Glacier Up Close” by Laura Joeckel

My daughter’s relationship with my husband started slowly, like the cautious unfolding of the tulip in early spring. They regarded each other carefully. How much authority did she have over him? How much love did he have for her? I watched them separate their feelings, analyze the other’s behavior, react and then pause to see what might happen; I watched my husband become a father. I can’t remember when it happened. She climbed into his lap instead of mine. I pretended not to notice when she brought him a book and demanded he read it to her. He used voices for the characters as he read. I never used voices. I fell into his rhythmic tones, laughed when my daughter squealed as he spoke for a character, his voice shrill and accented. She nestled closer into the side of his body when he finished the chapter, begged him to read another, and because it was probably the first time she asked, he kissed her on the head and said yes. Later, after clothes were changed, teeth brushed, prayers said, I tucked my daughter into her bed and left the room. Up until this point my husband was never asked for any sort of ritual comfort. That night though, she held out her arms and asked, “Hug?” I watched from the doorway as he embraced her, the dam that kept his enthusiasm contained for the last several months while they navigated their new relationship, broken, his love for her poured out into the first true embrace.

He stayed to talk with her and I walked to the kitchen to get ice cream. While I scooped thick vanilla cream, sliced banana, poured mixed nuts, and drizzled chocolate into a bowl, my daughter told my husband stories. He didn’t shut her down the way I might, didn’t insist she go to sleep so that for the first time all day he could sit in silence. He questioned her and begged to hear about her day, listened intently while she strung stories into a woven narrative. When he was done he joined me on the couch. We took turns slurping the chunky concoction off the same spoon. He praised my masterful ice cream creation, the combination of sweet, salty, crunchy, and smooth, was a delight to his taste buds. I let him dig into the bowl with a zealousness. While my husband has loved ice cream from the probable first time his mother placed a fingertip dipped in the cool sweet cream into his toothless mouth, I have always regarded it with apprehension and unease. But while I watched him devour the churned frozen treat, I relished in his joy at such a simple food. I stared at him and wondered when my daughter was going to realize how much he loved her. Juan Rulfo wrote that nothing lasted forever, that, “there is no memory, no matter how intense, that does not fade.” But this memory stays with me, like the grime that accumulates on hands sticky with sugar.

I am seven and waiting for my father. My mother taps her foot, catches herself, stops. Stares at her watch, sighs, stares at me, my small body pressed close to the window where I wait for his dirty Camaro to come into view. We don’t own a clock, but I can hear the rhythmic ticking of time moving too slow, like it does in school, minutes before the bell rings for lunch. It’s my father’s turn to get me, which means that he is late, and my mother is angry. I can feel it radiating on my back, passing through me and out to the curb where my father will pull in any second, I do not care because tonight is my night with my father. He pulls in, probably unaware of the looks my mother is sending at him through the window. I hug my mother and race out the door into his waiting arms, the unmistakable smells of Kiwi shoe shine and starch cling to his jeans and shirt. When I am buckled in he tells me where we are going for dinner and I let him believe my excitement is from his restaurant choice and not the prospect of spending the next two hours with him. When we reach the Denny’s he always takes me to, I order the Jr. Grand Slam and use the tired, grubby crayons to play tic tac toe and hangman. When our food arrives, my father’s is gone in minutes. While I happily hack away at soggy pancakes and sausage he tells me stories of learning how to eat in under three minutes during boot camp, how it’s a habit he hasn’t broken himself of yet. Perhaps I will eat like him someday, I say, because it seems that’s what I’m supposed to say, things that reinforce to my father that I want to be like him. Before I am finished he orders us ice cream even though I hadn’t asked for any. I feign excitement again, but I can already feel the stomach ache that comes when melted ice cream meets the syrup drenched pancakes sitting low in my belly. Perhaps, because he thinks I will like it, he orders me the biggest serving of ice cream that Denny’s has, three massive scoops that sit atop a cone too large for my hands. Later I will learn that my father’s father, because of his inability to cook for himself after divorcing his wife, fed his sons Spam for almost every meal. And maybe this is why my own father felt that feeding me at Denny’s, where I was guaranteed to get whatever I wanted, made him different from his own father. The ice cream at the end of the meal was

a symbol that my father was doing better than his own. Had my father asked me however, I might have said no to the end of meal treat, his attempt to be what he thought a good father was. Instead I might have insisted that we go to his house and read books or play a game, that he teach me something new, or tell me a string of silly stories. Instead, I would always feel obligated to settle for the ice cream. But at the time of this particular incident I knew none of these things, I’d only met my Spam-serving grandfather on a few occasions, knew his name was Dave and, like Spam, he’d never been well received. I only knew that in a few hours I would be curled up in bed clutching my stomach from the onslaught of sticky sugars and sausage colliding. So, when the ice cream arrived I thanked my father and began the arduous task of dismantling the mound in front of me. At some point, several bites in, I begged my father for help. Ice cream was beginning to run down the cone and onto my fingers, tracing the thin lines of my veins on my slender arms. With a deftness I imagine now only comes from practice, my father, in two bites, consumed the top most part of my ice cream into a manageable treat, the melting sugared cream lapping gently at the cusp of the cone. Even with his assistance it would still take me considerable time to work my way through the rest of the ice cream towards the finish line of the paper wrapping. And by the end, I would be filled not with victory, but a heavy sense of cold, dumb guilt because I could see through my father’s attempts to be something that he wasn’t. On multiple occasions throughout my separation from my ex, the father of my daughter, I’ve attempted to engage him in meaningful and thoughtful discussions about his “enoughness.” But what I actually do is sit on the phone, because I can never do this to his face, and beg him to be more than enough for our daughter. For several months our contact with each other is limited to the hellos and goodbyes as he drops her off after a brief weekend or evening visit. But then, after phone calls where I listen to my daughter plead with her father for more time, more nights together, more days at the park, more stories to read, more hugs to hold, more games to play, and he responds with a sweet voice that they just saw each other four days ago and she’ll see him next week, I lose whatever cool reserve I had.

phone calls usually happen while driving, and while my hands grip the steering wheel of my car, I’m sure anyone driving by me on the freeway thinks I look outrageously constipated and bitter. Sometimes, after their phone call is over and I’ve pushed my anger deep, deep down into my stomach, I’ll talk with my daughter about their conversation. She’ll tell me she’s sad but that she still loves her daddy and that next time she sees him she’s sure he’ll buy her a special treat. I want to possess this quickness to forgive someone who isn’t enough. But I am a product of my own relationship with a father who covered his inability to be enough, with the sweet and sticky treats that symbolize a happy childhood. Once, when it was her father’s turn to have our daughter, I learned that she was driving out of town with her grandmother to attend a baby shower. When I asked if he was going with her, his mother and he spoke in unison: “Maybe,” and “No.” “Why aren’t you coming daddy?” our daughter asked him later over the phone. “Baby showers are for girls, and you’ll see me on Sunday when you get back.” She questioned him again; why wouldn’t he come? “You’ll understand when you’re older,” and he laughed like she should understand the joke. There were many things she would understand soon, the least of these being the fleetingness of a love that is founded on superficial feelings that disappear under the heat of scrutiny. “But I go back to mommy’s house on Sunday.” “Don’t worry. We’ll still see each other.” He used the sweet voice again

and didn’t have to watch the way her chin trembled, how her eyes stared out the car window with a gaze full of longing. My stomach turned with a heaviness that left a bitter taste in my mouth, like soured milk that has accidentally been ingested. When my daughter finally hung up the phone I tried to talk to her about alternatives. She could stay home and not go to the baby shower; she could spend time with her daddy. She repeated many of her father’s excuses. She wanted to go. She’d see him later when she got home. “Plus, my grandma always buys me ice cream on the way home.” She added, like this was the final fact that swayed her to leave her father behind. I knew the ice cream place she was talking about. It’s located right off a busy highway, inside a large warehouse full of things like homemade chips, salsas, locally brewed beers and fermented wines. Their ice cream is thick and hearty, it doesn’t melt within minutes of leaving the cooling unit, doesn’t leave streams of sticky milk that threaten to overtake the cone or bowl. I asked her if ice cream was worth more than her father. She stared out the window, silent. Perhaps, her love of ice cream is like my husbands, able to quickly replace any of the bad tastes of the day with its cool, creamy coating. Maybe her memories aren’t laced with the bitter after-taste of guilt and stomach aches, and she doesn’t eat ice cream out of a belief that this image of a child with an ice cream cone represents not the fleetingness of a father’s love, but a happy, brilliant childhood.

PENINSULA PULSE  AUGUST 3–10/2018 • v24i31  DOORCOUNTYPULSE.COM

I thought that it was the Lake I wanted to see, to be there one last time after an absence of more than half a century. My brother’s plan, now imminent, to move to another state meant that for the first time in a hundred years there would be no member of our family living in the central Massachusetts city in which I had been born and grown up and therefore no reason for me to visit the area again. My dad is gone now but the memory of fishing with him, a sweet remembrance of the childhood of the 1950s, stays with me, becoming sweeter still as time softens the edges and wistful thoughts soothe a sense of loss. As I coast through my 70th year the memory is more a feeling than a clear picture or recollection of events. The sweetness itself is a simple product of our time together, just he and I as the bond that went beyond requited love emerged. Lake Singletary, somewhere outside of Worcester, is where we most often fished. Such happy times, perhaps more treasured both then and now since he had little free time back then, his work to support his family requiring 12-hour days, six days a week, and so the more special to have his attention. Images flash incomplete in my memory. My dad with his fishing license pinned to the front of his cap, the back of his head as he bends forward to untangle again my fishing line, his long cast to the deeper water where he hoped to catch a larger fish. He first took me fishing when I was four or five years old, patiently teaching me how to bait my hook or

cast my line. With a worm as my bait I fished close to the shore for panfish which we called kivvers while my dad cast further out hoping to land a bass or pickerel using a shiner for bait. At the end of the morning we brought home the largest of the kivvers and cleaned and scaled and then fried them. Sometimes my grandmother who lived with us would instead use them in a fish chowder, a thin milky dish with potatoes and a bit of onion. Those summer Sunday mornings when we were to fish could hardly arrive fast enough, a stop at the local bait shop and then on to the quiet country roads, the trip to the Lake seemingly a long ride to a distant destination. Somewhere along the way we passed a small pond on the right, just before the road forked. In the space at the base of the “v” formed by the forking roads there stood a small wooden building, a sort of general store one might find in such a rural setting. A few times, rather than continuing on to Lake Singletary, we stopped and fished at this nameless pond, simply parking along the side of the road. There were one or two rowboats for rent that lay on the shore and we would go into the small store to pay the rental fee and get the oars which were kept inside. There was a rickety screen door that closed with a slam by means of a coiled spring and right next to the door was a small display that sold snacks. I usually could persuade my dad to buy a bag of Cheez Doodles and we would load fishing gear, bait, and Doodles into our craft and set out.

My dad would row until we were midway between shore and a small wooded island which stood in the middle of the pond and then he would drop anchor – a bucket filled with hardened cement with a rope tied round the bucket’s handle. I thought this all a great adventure, a voyage aboard a vessel, fishing further away from shore than the child I was could hope to cast, and sharing Cheez Doodles with my dad, the pond’s water barely rinsing our hands of the combination of worm castings and fluids and of the slippery smell of fish, the orange dusty cheese flavoring coloring our fingers. The pond had kivvers but primarily there were yellow perch, a more desirable fish to catch and bring home, more easily cleaned, fewer bones and better taste. Once, I stood up in the boat and urinated over the side, a bold and what at the time seemed a dangerous maneuver. And I was alone with my dad, in the boat, nowhere for either of us to go. All of this made our times at the small pond special to me then and in my memory. A few weeks before my brother’s move we chose a day for me to come to his house so as to help out where I could and to take back a few things that were our folks’. This was likely the last time I might be able to conveniently go to Lake Singletary so I left home a couple of hours early and set off first for that final rendezvous with the Lake and the memories of my childhood self and of that young man who was my dad. I recalled our fishing spot as a spit of land directly off the rural road, water on both sides of that small

peninsula, more on the left, and a large expanse of water out beyond the land’s edge with a house or two on the distant shore. Our old car was parked on the dirt and fishing gear unloaded. My drive from Worcester took far less time than expected, in part because of the newer roads that now exist but primarily, I am certain, due to the difference between childhood impatience and adult reality. The final leg of the journey, though, still meandered along a simple country lane. I looked about as I drove it, seeking anything that might present as familiar, anything that would provoke childhood memory but none appeared. I rounded a gentle curve in the road and there just ahead the road forked, a small building stood in the fork and along the road’s right was the small pond. Immediately, spontaneously, I said aloud, almost as a gasp, “Oh! There it is.” There was now a small gravel parking area next to the pond, large enough for just a car or two. I pulled in, sat still for a moment, and got out. I stood quietly, looking at the pond, memory images flashing rapidly and without order. I then walked slowly about, taking in the entire scene, surprised by how small the pond was and how close to shore the island lay. There were no rowboats at the pond’s edge, there was now a metal guardrail where the road curved, the store was of brick construction and appeared to sell used items but the pond and the island were unchanged. Again involuntarily I spoke, aloud but softly so, to nobody but myself, “Well, I declare. Well, I declare.”

I had never said that ever before but I knew just from where it came; a favorite John Wayne western, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. In the movie the character played by Jimmy Stewart is an elderly U.S. Senator who has traveled from Washington to attend the funeral of a local who is to be buried in a pauper’s grave. The editor of the town’s newspaper demands to know the reason for such a prominent man to travel so far. Stewart finally agrees to tell the story which begins decades earlier when as a young man, well before the railroad had come to town, he arrived by stage. The simple pine coffin of his friend lay in the rear of a livery where there was also a dust covered stagecoach. As Stewart begins his story he realizes the old stagecoach is the very one that had carried him there and for a moment he is brought back in his mind to a younger self when life was a journey with limitless possibilities and whose end was beyond imaging and says, “Well, I declare. Well, I declare.” How curious that some odd circuit in my brain had summoned those words. In the gravel lot where I had parked there stood a small and attractive wooden sign which identified the body of water as Brierly Pond. Beneath the sign were planted some well tended flowers. I walked to the water’s edge and squatting down dipped my hand in the pond’s water and slowly swirled it about, thinking this was the same water in which my dad and I had rinsed our hands. After a bit I stood up, nodded to who or what I do not know, and slowly returned to my car. I drove on to Lake Singletary which was surprisingly nearby. The jutting bit of land was there on the left as I had recalled, now with the added amenity of a blacktopped parking area for six or eight cars. A boat launch had likewise been constructed. A middle aged man sat in a lawn chair near the shore at about the spot where I most often had fished. There was a pole with its line in the water next to him but he appeared to be happy simply enjoying the day and less interested in whether or not the fish were biting. I walked about, seeking memories. The water was invitingly clear and I placed a hand in it for a moment’s connection to the past. I returned to my car and drove off, having concluded my visit to the Lake and knowing I was unlikely ever to return. Driving past Brierly Pond, now on my left as I headed to my brother’s home, I slowed down, looked at it once more, but did not stop.

The (Almost) Last Solo Trip

nonfiction 3rd

I didn’t remember the trail down to the river being quite that steep. The old path I always used was littered with leaves from last fall, but that didn’t appear to be a problem. I thought I could traverse the distance downhill if I took my time and sidestepped. All I would need to do is firmly dig the sides of my wading boots into the semi-dry dirt of the incline as I inched my way down. That seemed like a reasonable solution to this issue and thus, I went ahead. However, the felt soles on my waders, which provided great purchase when wading the free stone streams, did not have the same traction on the cover of dry leaves. In fact, it was like trying to walk down a child’s slip ‘n slide wearing smooth soled shoes. I was only two steps into my descent when both of my feet lost grip and shot out from under me. Everything that happened next took place in a millisecond, but time slowed down for me. I watched my feet shoot out horizontally to the ground. Instinctively I jettisoned my fishing pole from my right hand. I’m sure this was a survival type move that would, a.) allow me to have both hands to cushion my contact with mother earth and b.) would help ensure that I did not break or land on my fishing pole. I felt like I was floating, parallel to the earth for a long time and then, not gently, was deposited on the ground. Landing on my back, the full weight of my body crashed into the hillside. I was fortunate in that I landed full flat, all at once. The impact was distributed evenly along my body. The downside to this type of landing is that on impact I lost the majority of air and oxygen from my body. “Having the wind knocked out of you” is the loose medical term. Except for the sound of moving water, everything was still as I lay there letting my systems come back to a functional level. However, trying to gain focus as the world, colors and sounds spun around me while also

attempting to suck some air back into my lungs seemed to take forever. Lying there, I slowly began to review how prophetic my wife had been. This remote section of the Pike River was a favorite of mine to fish. I had no companions who appreciated the type of fishing I enjoyed, and thus I made most of my excursions independently. My wife had indicated that going on these solo excursions was not really a prudent thing to do, at least in her mind. She would point out such things as age and distance whenever we discussed my plans. “For God’s sake, you’re 71. You’ve had one heart attack. Even when you tell me where you are going I have no idea; take someone with you!” OR “You don’t have to go that far away you know. There are streams closer to home.” OR “Call me when you get on the river and call me when you leave.” OR, the more succinct question, “Are you nuts?” (Which is really more of a rhetorical question anyway.) But, those words always fell on deaf ears. The real trout, the solitude, the wilderness experience wasn’t close to home. I had fished this way for years. But had the years gone by faster than I realized? That question began to eat at my thinking. Lying there on my back, as I stared up through the trees, I began to realize that I wasn’t the 40- or 50-year-old that used to ply these streams. “When did I become an old man?” I thought. Maybe I no longer was dependent on only myself; I might need someone else along just for safety’s sake. But I loved these solo trips, they were so invigorating. They offered a chance to see the land, feel the breeze on my face and listen to nature talk to just me. I rolled to my right side and slowly sat up. All my joints seemed to be working well, even though my frame was hurting from the impact of the

fall. A quick body check confirmed I was not bleeding in any place and that was good. My waders were not torn or punctured and there, by my side, lay my fishing rod all in one piece. Aside from some aches and pains from my connection with the ground, I seemed to be okay. I took a deep breath, or perhaps it was a sigh, and collected myself and my gear. Slowly I plodded to the edge of the river. This was a place I was familiar with, a place where I had spent time before. Here was an easy access into the stream that I had used on numerous other visits to the Pike. Slowly wading into the river, I picked my way to a place where the water was knee deep. I reveled at the cool sensation and feeling of the river flowing around my legs. How many times had I felt that before? Was this to be the last time for me? That question filled me with apprehension and felt like a brick had been lodged in my chest. As I opened my tackle box the tumble I took negotiating the incline to the river was still in my mind. Rummaging through the selection of spinners and flies in my tack, the “what ifs” of my mishap clouded my mind. I tried to shake off those thoughts and half-heartedly chose a spinner I thought would be something the local fish might attack. I tied the lure onto my line, but continued to think about the misfortune I had experienced. It was difficult to focus on fishing, my mind raced with thoughts. “This could be the herald of my last solo trip. This could be the incident that tells me I can’t come here alone anymore. Maybe I am too old to be here alone. Is this the reality that I’ve feared, that I finally have to face it? ” I tried to shake those morbid thoughts from my mind. I had come here today to enjoy some time on my beloved river. While those were all things I needed to face, today was about fishing and enjoying the immersion in nature. I was here to savor each moment. Thoughts of age and personal limitations began to fade from my mind. A pair of whitethroats began to serenade me from the opposite side of the river. Picking a place along the feed line of the pool, I cast my line out into the coffee colored water and slowly began to retrieve the spinner. The familiar slow rhythm of my hand on the reel was relaxing, and a nice, fat brown trout smacked the lure. After a short battle I brought the fish to creel. This was a part of what it was all about; the fish, the stream and the moment in time that will not be repeated, but never forgotten. And you know what, those aches and pains I felt from my fall didn’t seem so bad now. Nor did the finite thoughts about my ability or mortality. Maybe I have a few more solo trips in me.

Rust Never Sleeps A Memoir

If there was a poster child for teenage beaters, Pat’s 1970 Datsun 510 was it. It was a boxy, four-speed manual, sub-compact four door with an unhealthy level of rust working its way across the entire car. The salt of Minnesota roads took a toll on the cheap Japanese metal of the 510. The car served his family well over the years, but by the time it became Pat’s car, the winter road salt was having its way with the vehicle’s frame and slowly dismantling it. For a time, the right front fender flopped and shook at freeway speeds as the bolts holding it to the frame slowly gave way one at a time. Eventually Pat took it off entirely, exposing the front suspension and wheels to the elements. It drew stares and smiles from people on the road when we drove around. On the upside, if Pat ever needed to install new shocks, well, he was halfway there. The undercarriage of the Datsun was perhaps its weakest link. The floorboards on both the driver and passenger sides rusted out entirely. Getting into and out of the car required stepping on the lower door frame and the transmission hump and nowhere in-between. To step on the floorboards might put your foot through to the pavement. Because the car’s engine was so dependable Pat wanted to get some more miles out of the car, so he and his brothers repaired the floor with some sheet metal. Large sheets were riveted onto any good steel on the frame that could be found. When it was done, it didn’t make the floor much more stable, but at least passengers didn’t have to watch the road going by underneath their feet. That feature was a hit on dates. Pat was always one for looking to take things outside the lines a bit and the car gave him the perfect expression of those tendencies. Both of us were big fans of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, a popular British series on public television at the time. Pat thought it would be funny if he took the opening line from the series

and add it to the car. So he got a roll of masking tape and spelled out on the bumper of the car, “And now for something completely different…” The funny thing was it was the perfect statement for the car. With all of its rust, the missing fender, its boxy shape and the faded red paint, it really was something completely different. Once when we were out driving, a car with a couple of good looking girls about our age pulled up next to us. The driver rolled down her window and said, “What does that mean on the back?” Trying to be as cool and suave as he could, he shouted to her, “It’s the Monty Python thing.” The girls gave us a quizzical look like, “Wha…?” It was clearly too much of an inside joke for them to understand. They sort of giggled, shrugged and pulled away. Pat turned to me and said, “Oh, well. Easy come, easy go.” We both busted out laughing. After we talked about it we agreed that our wit was so sharp, our senses of humor so keen, that no one as beautiful as them could ever understand the verse and its correlation to the decrepit car. Yes, those beauties were not smart enough for the two dashing young males with their feet perched on the transmission hump. No bother. There were plenty of fish in the sea. In his never-ending quest to get another laugh, Pat thought it would be funny to take the Monty Python auto personalization routine to the next level. He rescued a wingback chair that was destined for the trash heap and tied it to the roof of the Datsun. He tied it facing forward like a sort of mobile throne fit for an adventurous king. I am sure there were people that thought he was just in the process of moving it for lack of a trailer, but it was much more than that. Pat was doing it simply as an extension of his uniqueness. He was not one to follow the crowd. The chair was his bowtie in a sea of neckties. His chance to stand out – or sit down, perhaps – while on the road.

Exhibits and events that highlight the culture of the Belgian settlements. The chair was a novel idea for a couple of weeks. But after the initial zaniness wore off, Pat decided to test out the engineering stability of the rumble seat on the roof. He somehow convinced his younger brother Matt to take a seat on the throne of death atop the decrepit import for a test run around the neighborhood. Matt told the tale of a thrilling ride, but unfortunately somewhere along the line one of the neighbors recognized the car and informed their parents. Pat’s father made him take the chair off and gave him a lecture on the responsibilities that come with owning your own car. As it turns out, wingback chair roof surfing wasn’t part of taking those responsibilities seriously. Who knew? Pat went on to own a number of sketchy vehicles over the next 10 years of his life, including a couple of Volkswagen Beetles that I played a role in helping him render useless; stories for another time, perhaps. But like my first car, a ’68 Oldsmobile Cutlass with an attitude, I’ll always remember that Datsun. In all of its inglorious quirks, it was the embodiment of my best friend, Pat. Like him, it was outside the mainstream and it had flair and a sense of humor about it. It went through the hard times with us and despite its warts, it was loveable. To some people a car is a tool, a way to get from point A to point B. But to us, the Datsun was more like an old friend. THE END

I remember driving around town in his car with the chair on top wondering what people thought. We got a kick out of watching the reaction of other drivers and pedestrians as we traversed the streets of Saint Paul. Who could help but smile at a car that’s missing a fender with a little bit of the living room strapped on the roof? I crack up just thinking about it. One of our favorite hangouts as teenagers was a place called Lee’s Billiards, an alcohol-free pool hall. Lee was a grizzled guy, a chain smoker who ran a tight business of overseeing a dozen pool tables for rent by the hour. A jukebox sat in the corner thumping out hits of the day like “My Sharona” and “Sultans of Swing,” while teens and twenty-somethings circled the tables calculating angles and putting their high school geometry knowledge to the test. The smoky, sometimes rollicking confines were a portal to adulthood and we spent lots of time and money there pushing ourselves to the other side. One summer evening as Pat and I were engaged in another gripping match of last pocket, a patron came in and asked who owned the car with the chair on top and the Monty Python on the bumper? Pat looked at me, cracked up and said, “That would be me.” “Well, you left your lights on.” His identification of the car was certainly more definitive than asking who owns a red compact. And more fun.

BULLETIN WHAT HAPPENED • The Sturgeon Bay Police Department reported that a counterfeit hundred dollar bill was used at a local business this week. They advise people to be aware when taking large bills and be educated on what to look for. According to uscurrency.gov, there are several built-in security features to look for in the 2013-issue $100 bill. They include raised printing, which should give a slightly rough feel to the paper, which is a unique blend of 75 percent cotton and 25 percent linen. Tilt the note and the “100” in the lower right corner and the bell in the inkwell should change color from copper to green. Images of bells and 100s are on the 3-D security ribbon woven into the bill – tilt the bill from side to side and the images will move up and down. Hold the note to a light to see the security ribbon to the left of Benjamin Franklin’s portrait – it should read “USA 100.” Holding it to a light, you should also be able to see a faint watermark image of Franklin from either side.

• On Aug. 1 Clean Wisconsin sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the federal Circuit Court in Washington, D.C., to challenge a Trump Administration decision that fails to reduce unhealthy ozone smog in Wisconsin and other parts of the country. Smog occurs when pollution emitted by power plants, industrial facilities and vehicles reacts with sunlight to form ozone. Ozone smog harms people with respiratory disease, older adults, children and other vulnerable people. The Clean Air Act requires EPA to designate “nonattainment areas” in counties where air quality fails to meet federal health standards for ozone. The states must then take steps to reduce the amount of ozone smog in the air. On June 4, EPA designated a narrow band of “ozone nonattainment areas” in a few Wisconsin counties along the Lake Michigan shoreline. U.S. EPA also announced its decision that other areas in eastern Wisconsin are not violating the ozone air quality standards – a decision directly at odds with EPA’s previous position. The June designations differ significantly from what EPA proposed less than six months earlier, which was its intention to designate all of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Waukesha and Washington Counties as ozone nonattainment areas. EPA also designated eastern portions of Door, Kenosha, Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties as ozone nonattainment areas. The Walker administration had pushed back on EPA’s earlier proposal, asking that the entire state be declared in compliance. “This legal challenge builds on our almost 50 years of work to help ensure that everyone in Wisconsin, especially our most vulnerable residents, can breathe clean, healthy air, ” said Clean Wisconsin CEO Mark Redsten.

Schaffmeyer doubts the work has any meaningful monetary value but said it was a part of the Stavkirke chapel, which is used mainly for an annual Easter celebration as well as for weddings and small ceremonies like christenings. He said the icon has a picture of Jesus in the center and representations of the Gospels. Anyone with information on the theft is encouraged to call Trinity Lutheran Church at 920.847.2341 or the Washington Island Police Department at 920.847.2355.

Economic Report Identifies Declining Dynamism in State by JIM LUNDSTROM jim@ppulse.com

D

oor County is identified in a new economic report as one of 20 counties with the lowest average business startup rates during the 20102014 economic recovery. The report identifies 7.2 percent (amounting to 9,898 new businesses) as the average startup rate for that period in Wisconsin, while it was 6.5 percent in Door County (84 new businesses). The average death rate in the state was 7.6 percent (10,444 businesses), while in Door County it was 7 percent (91 businesses). The report, called Slow Churn: Declining Dynamism in America’s Dairyland, was prepared by the University of Wisconsin Center for Community and Economic Development (CCED), in partnership with the Economic Development Administration University Center at the UW. “Wisconsin’s economy, as part of a broad national trend, is becoming less dynamic,” the report states. “Dynamism – the speed and scope at which the economy can change – is measured by business activity, employment patterns, population mobility, spending on research and development, and lending activity by banks. The lack of dynamism in Wisconsin is widespread; the result of fewer businesses opening and closing (referred to as ‘business churn’), low migration rates, fewer innovative activities, and less investment.” Regarding the mostly rural counties included on the list of 20 with the lowest business startup and highest business death rates, the report states: “These net losses are largely due to declining births, rather than increasing deaths. That is, counties are suffering more from a lack of entrepreneurship than high business failure rates. This low birth rate is important for understanding the potential problem. It doesn’t appear that once businesses have started that they are facing an especially harsh environment. Instead, getting started in

the first place may be the real challenge – perhaps because of capital constraints, but even less obvious factors like health insurance and child care can constrain entrepreneurial potential.” In county rankings, Menominee County led by far with a business startup rate of 12.5 percent and an average death rate of 7.8 percent. However, in Menominee County that amounted to an average of three startups annually in the 2010-14 time period. Langlade County ranked 72nd, with a 4.8 percent startup rate (27 businesses) and a 7.6 percent death rate (35 businesses). Door County ranked 57th. Here are some key findings: • Since the start of the Great Recession the death rate of Wisconsin businesses with employees has outpaced the startup rate. As a result, after almost three decades of growth, the number of businesses with employees in Wisconsin started to decline in 2007. • New employer businesses are a critical source of job creation.The low birth rate of these businesses is linked to the slow job recovery coming out of the most recent recession. • In-migration is among the lowest in the country. This low in-migration limits a critical source of new ideas and innovation which are important for economic health. • Small business lending declined dramatically during the Great Recession and has yet to recover. The banking sector has also become increasingly consolidated, resulting in both fewer vendors and fewer locations for consumers seeking financial services. • In a labor market with fewer new job offerings, the opportunities for workers to advance in their careers by moving into a new position are much more limited. • A decreasing share of resources in Wisconsin is going toward research and development (R&D).

new research report on Green Bay’s dead zone opens with a startling statistic: “Worldwide, the number of marine hypoxic zones [dead zones] has approximately doubled each decade since the 1960s, fueled largely by cultural eutrophication [human activity], and numbering over 400 today.” Remember the summer of 2014 when Green Bay’s dead zone was making national headlines? Well, it’s still here, and the new report by the University of Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences published in the latest issue of the Journal of Great Lakes Research finds that the “footprint” of the zone centers on the bottom of the southeastern portion of the bay but it can “oscillate and shift both westward and northward” and that its extent varies widely from year to year. The report points out that hypoxia – or oxygen depletion – is a broad-scale indicator of ecosystem health. Observations dating back to 1939 have noted oxygen depletion at the southern end of the bay (referred to as the area of concern, or AOC). “The major culprit at that time was assumed to be industrial waste water discharge loadings, primarily as waste sulphite liquor from paper mills in the Fox River, which resulted in river water that was often devoid of oxygen and which propagated in the river plume outward into the bay,” the report states. “Water quality in the Fox River improved dramatically in the 1970s following implementation of the Clean Water Act’s wastewater discharge limits,” the report states. The report frequently points out the historical lack of research, such as this line, “Although infrequently examined, late summer conditions in the bottom waters of the bay at large were historically observed to exhibit

• Climate warming; • Increased retention of algalderived organic matter; • And a severely limited benthos [the flora and fauna found on the bottom or in the sediments of a body of water] in terms of both numbers of organisms and their diversity. The report states there are two indicators that “sustained, permanent restoration has occurred”: • An improvement in summertime hypoxia. • An increase and diversity of the bottom fauna. With projections for a wetter and warmer climate, shorter winters, reduced ice cover, increased runoff and increased heavy precipitation, hypoxia management efforts could be confounded. The report concludes that an expanded system is needed to monitor the annual extent and duration of summertime hypoxia, with the goal of providing regular dead zone updates.

Nicholson, Vukmir Support Trump The top Republican candidates for U.S. Senate both declined to name any areas where they disagree with President Donald Trump at a debate last week, saying Trump needs to be given room to negotiate. Marine veteran Kevin Nicholson and state Sen. Leah Vukmir were both asked repeatedly whether there were issues where they’d push back against Trump. Both declined to name any. “The president’s done good work, and we should applaud him for it,” Nicholson said. “He’s standing for our country,” Vukmir said of Trump. “He’s doing exactly what he promised.” Trump has not endorsed either candidate in the race. Three other Republicans are running for the Senate seat: Charles Barman, insurance underwriter Griffin Jones and retired machinist George Lucia. Walker has not formally endorsed Vukmir, but his wife, Tonette Walker, has. Their son, Alex Walker, works for Vukmir’s campaign. Evers Seeks More for Special Education Funding Wisconsin state Superintendent of Public Instruction and Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Tony Evers is asking the state to increase special education funding by $600 million in the 2019-21 state budget. That’s a giant increase to the current base funding for special education which is less than $369 million. The state funds special education through a reimbursement method, and according to DPI, reimbursement rates in Wisconsin have not kept up with inflation or demand. DPI and public education advocates argue local school districts have had to make cuts

elsewhere in their budgets in order to meet the needs of students with disabilities. The current DPI request would increase the reimbursement rate to 60 percent by 2019, with the goal to bring the reimbursement rate to 90 percent in the future. As Gov. Scott Walker seeks re-election, he’s been campaigning as an “education governor” because of the additional funding he’s set aside for public schools and technical colleges. But critics, including Evers, have argued previous budgets have not made education a funding priority. Counties Prepare for Potential Mining Projects Communities in northern Wisconsin are working out their next steps following a recent law change that will once again give companies an easier time moving forward with plans to mine metals such as copper and gold. A repeal of a decades-old sulfide mining moratorium took effect on July 1. The moratorium required mining companies to provide proof of a sulfide mine that had operated for 10 years and been closed for 10 years without doing environmental harm before a new permit could be issued – a bar set high enough to effectively block any new mining. Industry advocates and other supporters of the repeal contend it will allow companies to construct mines that will bring economic prosperity to their regions, while opponents fear mining sulfide minerals will lead to contamination of surrounding water resources. Oneida County held a series of meetings after the moratorium was lifted to review its metallic mining ordinance, which was updated in recent years after mining company Tamerlane Ventures, Inc. expressed interest in the county’s Lynne deposit in 2009. Around 5.6 million tons of zinc sulfide ore, lead and silver could be extracted from county land through an open pit mine. The county’s zoning director Karl Jennrich said the county hired outside counsel to review its ordinance to see if it would withstand a legal challenge. Marathon County was the first in Wisconsin to pass an ordinance regulating sulfide mining after the moratorium was lifted. Toronto-based Aquila Resources conducted exploration of Marathon County’s Reef Deposit in 2011. The Canadian company recently received its final permit with conditions from the state of Michigan to construct the Back Forty mine on the Wisconsin-Michigan border. Aquila also conducted exploration of Taylor County’s Bend Deposit in 2011, which is estimated to contain more than 4 million tons of ore. Other counties have been drafting ordinances now that the moratorium has been repealed.

highly depleted dissolved oxygen concentrations.” The worst example of oxygen depletion in the bay came on Aug. 5, 2005, when persistent winds forced hypoxic bottom water into Green Bay’s eastern shore “reportedly triggering the beaching and massive fish kill of tens of thousands of round gobies” that swam ahead of the front until it reached the shoreline. The researchers determined that “the bay functions as a very efficient nutrient and particle trap, sequestering 70-90 percent of the total phosphorus inputs within the bay in rapidly accumulating, organic rich sediments…” The problems include: • Nutrient loading from point and nonpoint sources; • Increases in the intensity of extreme precipitation and runoff events which in this system control up to 50-80 percent of the total load on an annual basis; • Hypereutrophication and excessive algal production;

Walker Signs Waiver to Lower ACA Costs Gov. Scott Walker signed what he calls the Wisconsin Health Care Stability Plan on Sunday, saying the plan requires the state to keep coverage “comprehensive and affordable.” Thanks to a federal waiver from the Affordable Care Act, the state will use $200 million in state and federal funds to cover some insurer costs. The federal waiver was approved by the Legislature in February and then approved by the federal government. It will create a reinsurance program for people on the individual market and will cover some insurer costs. “We just wanted to fix as much as we could. The problems that people face today and so presumably five years from now, there will probably be some changes we can adapt to, but in the meantime we want to give people meaningful relief so that premiums will go down,” Walker said. The Democratic Party of Wisconsin issued a statement, calling the move “sabotage of the health care law.” DPW claimed Walker has refused to expand BadgerCare and supports a lawsuit that would end protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

NEWS YOUR REPS IN THE NEWS Congressman Mike Gallagher Last week Rep. Gallagher and his colleagues in the House passed H.R. 2353, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act. The bipartisan bill seeks to modernize career and technical education opportunities for students so they are better prepared to succeed in an increasingly competitive global economy. It has now passed both the House and Senate unanimously and will be sent to the president’s desk to be signed into law. “Northeast Wisconsin is home to some of the hardest working people in the country. But as technology continues to advance and automation replaces workers, our workforce must have the resources it needs to adapt. As I travel around the 8th District, I routinely hear this concern from local business owners and their employees,” Gallagher said. “The legislation we passed today in the House is critical to ensuring our technical schools can provide students with the training they need for the high-skilled jobs in our local economy. I’m confident that Northeast Wisconsin is prepared to lead the way when it comes to closing the country’s growing skills gap, which is why I urge President Trump to sign this bill into law so our schools can get the resources they need.” Source: Gallagher press release Senator Tammy Baldwin The final Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) released last week by the House-Senate conference committee includes funding for three Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) that Sen. Baldwin fought for in the bipartisan legislation. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Baldwin has long supported the LCS program and has successfully worked for funding to support Made in Wisconsin shipbuilding. “I take great pride in representing Wisconsin’s shipbuilding industry because our workers have helped sustain America’s security for generations, boasting a successful history of building ships for our nation’s defense,” she said. “The LCS program is supported by thousands of skilled workers at the Marinette Marine shipyard and at the 200 suppliers across Wisconsin.” The Senate version of the NDAA funded only one ship and included harmful restrictions on the LCS program. Baldwin led a bipartisan amendment to increase funding for the program and to remove these restrictions, urging her colleagues to support this critical Made in Wisconsin national security effort. The final NDAA fully funds the program, supporting the construction of three LCS, and rejects the Senate attempt to limit the program. Baldwin also helped secure nearly $30 million in the final NDAA for military construction and family housing projects at Wisconsin’s Fort McCoy, one of the Army’s premier training facilities.

Senator Johnson (R-Wisconsin) said Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation he doesn’t want that aid to be implemented. He believes by President Trump calling a truce with the European Commission President, it may prevent that aid from being necessary. “That’s not going to work in any government’s hands. So, you know, my- my hope is that by calling a truce, by moving forward to completing these deals, we never even have to try and implement that 12 billion dollar program because that would be a mess,” Johnson said.

Manafort is being tried by Mueller’s team. Sessions, who endorsed Trump’s presidential bid during the 2016 campaign, recused himself from the Russia investigation last March, before Mueller was appointed.

Sevastopol Committee Recommends $25.1 Million Option School board expected to approve capital and operational referenda for November by JIM LUNDSTROM jim@ppulse.com

T

he Sevastopol School Board will be asked at its Aug. 16 meeting to place two referenda on the November ballot – a $25.1 million option to replace and renovate aging portions of the piecemealed school and a request to approve $2 million in operational costs for two years. That was the conclusion of Sevastopol’s Citizens Facility Advisory Committee (CFAC), which convened last October to come up with a plan to update the school within a monetary framework taxpayers can support. The decision at the July 25 CFAC meeting to go with what was called the basic option by the design-build team of Bray Architects and Miron Construction was effectively the end of the line for the citizen committee, and the decision to go ahead with the November referenda is now in the hands of the seven-member Sevastopol School Board. However, since the school board members were also active participants in CFAC, it seems likely Sevastopol School District voters will have the referenda on the Nov. 6 ballot. The basic plan presented to the committee would demolish the 96-year-old three-story section of the school and the 1946 section being used as the technical education building, creating a new two-story addition at a cost of $25,152,793. The total cost includes $965,039 in renovations to the existing school and $24,187,754 in new construction. The team also provided an alternate plan that would include a second floor science building added to the new addition at a cost of $1,988,232, and paving the 153-stall south parking lot at a cost of $350,617. Miron Business Development Specialist Megan Prestebak presented options for both the November 2018 election and the April 2019, with costs rising at least 4 percent if the district waits until April to present

the capital referendum. She added that labor unions recently negotiated a 3½-percent wage increase, which could mean the projected 4 percent increase in April could be even higher. For example, the total cost if the district waited to present the referendum until April 2019 would rise to $26,158,905. The large group broke down into small groups to discuss the options, and while several of the small groups had opted for the second option with the science building, the majority thought the basic plan had the most chance of being passed by voters. While the 35-member CFAC has fulfilled its charge and no longer has reason to meet, the members were invited to continue the work of educating residents with talking points about the project in order to gain support for the referenda. The project gained momentum in June when a survey was sent to district residents to gather thoughts on two different school options – a complete rebuild at $57 million and a rebuild/renovate at $45 million. The survey had a 30 percent response (or 915 returned surveys), and only 40 percent of respondents supported the $57 million option and 37 percent the cheaper option. The survey also asked if there is support for an operational referendum of $2 million for the next two years, representing an estimated annual increase of $33 for each $100,000 of a home’s value. Sixty-nine percent said yes, although that included 39 percent definite yes and 30 percent probably yes. The tax impact for the $25 million school project was identified as $119 annually on a $100,000 home. The design-build team also came up with a timeline for the project, with construction not scheduled to begin until spring 2020, demolition of the existing structures at the end of the 2020 school year and an August completion date for construction.

Walker Loses to Evers in NBC/Marist Poll Forecast by JIM LUNDSTROM jim@ppulse.com

G

ov. Scott Walker will be carrying some heavy baggage with him in the November election, including increasing discontent with President Donald Trump. In a poll released last week by NBC News and Marist College, 53 percent of respondents disapprove of Trump’s performance, including 43 percent who strongly disapprove, and 56 percent do not think he should be re-elected. Why should that worry Gov. Walker? Seventy-three percent of respondents said the November midterm election is very important, and a majority (54 percent) said they will use their vote to send a message as a check on Trump’s power. Couple that with more than six in 10 voters (or 64 percent) – including 61 percent of independent voters – responding that Walker does not deserve to be re-elected. The poll also found that Walker trails his potential Democratic candidate, state school superintendent Tony Evers, by 13 points. Evers garnered 54 percent response from respondents, while Walker registered 41 percent.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible wrongdoing and Russian interference with the 2016 presidential election is a fair probe; 28 percent believe it is a “witch hunt,” including 55 percent of Republicans. Education also appears to play a role in Trump backlash. White voters with and without a college degree are more likely to say their vote calls for a check on Trump. However, 58 percent of those with a college degree are more likely than those without a college diploma (48 percent) to have this view. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin registered 54 percent support among respondents, while her potential Republican challenger Kevin Nicholson garnered a 39 percent response, followed by 38 percent for the other Republican candidate, Leah Vukmir. Thirty-four percent of potential Republican primary voters are undecided in their choice between Nicholson and Vukmir. The partisan primary is on Aug. 14.

Carol Patterson July 18, 1934 – July 24, 2018 Carol Patterson, an adventurous, creative, funny and wise woman, died while traveling in the Olympia, Wash., area with her husband, Alfred (Al) Bigari. She and Al were looking forward to a dream trip to Alaska for her 84th birthday when she became ill and was unable to fight the effects of a weakened immune system. She graduated in 1968 with a degree in Special Education, from Northern Illinois University. She taught at Summit School in Arlington Heights, Ill., at Sturgeon Bay High School and Southern Door High School. A passion for sailing led Carol to obtain a captain’s license. To be closer to great sailing, she found a farm in southern Door County in the late 1970s that remains in the family and hosts artists and adventurers alike. She was a long-time member of a book club in Green Bay, a creative writing group in Venice, and volunteered at the Kewaunee County Historical Society. A celebration of life will be held Aug. 4, 2-6 pm at the Barnsite Retreat and Events Center, 109 Duvall Street, Kewaunee.

Over the past 2 weeks, as we dealt with the tragic loss of our father, husband, brother and friend, the outpouring of love and support we received from the Door County community has been incredible. Many people have truly wrapped their arms around us through thoughts, visits, meals, prayers, and memorials. Each form of support has been a great comfort to our whole family. It warms our hearts to know that so many of you will remember Steve’s warmth, laughter, and spirit.

ART

• Descendants of Martin Nicolai Knudsen, lighthouse keeper for 43 years stationed in Michigan and Wisconsin, gathered at the Door County Maritime Museum (DCMM) July 17. They came from across the country to honor their ancestor by offering a gold medal to the DCMM on permanent loan. The medal has been passed through the family and most recently resided with the Knudson family in Pittsburgh. It commemorates the gallant acts of Captain Knudsen performed in the rescue of the crews of two schooners in October, 1892, the J. R. Gillmore and the A.P. Nichols. In those stormy weeks, boats were tossed across the strait of Death’s Door. Within a week of each other, both schooners ran aground and were battered against the rocks of Pilot Island, where Knudsen was stationed. He single-handedly went out to the boats, first by skiff for the Gillmore where he brought the crew back to shore. In the case of the Nichols, Knudsen jumped into break waters to reach the stranded sailors and guided the exhausted crew of eight, one by one to land. Captain Knudsen was also awarded the Silver Lifesaving Medal the following spring when the lighthouse tender “Dahlia” made her first trip of the season to Pilot Island. This medal currently resides with his descendent, Kenneth Knudson. • Open Door Bird Sanctuary (ODBS) reminds the community to RSVP for their Aug. 23 Hoot-E-Nanny fundraiser.

(1) Jeanne Nikolai Olivieri hails from Milwaukee but has been a long-time visitor to Door County with her family. In a life filled with divisions and differences, her work celebrates the beauty of things we share. She works in multiple mediums, including acrylics, oils, watercolor, collage, ink and gouache, responding to a continuous desire to explore, but whatever the medium, she uses vivid pigments and revels in the bold use of color. She also gives a new perspective to many common scenes and they can be seen in the works that are part of From a Different Angle, running Aug. 2-26 at Woodwalk Gallery. Olivieri will be featured along with local photographers Steve and Arlene Stanger, who also literally put things at a different angle sometimes using a vortograph lens or a Holga camera, and Gail Nelson who works to create images in enamels that can be infused with copper or gold. Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 Cty G in Egg Harbor. The gallery is open 10 am to 5 pm daily. For more information visit woodwalkgallery.com.

(2) Join James May Gallery for the August opening reception for their latest exhibit on Aug. 3, 5:30-8 pm. The exhibit runs through Sept. 3 and features paintings by Amy Soczka, mixed media by Tim Abel and ceramics by Justin Donofrio. The show coincides with the monthly art walk on Steele Street. Soczka said of her work, “I am interested in creating work that is like a memory of a landscape or a garden that you dreamed about … My current series of large paintings attempts to surround the viewer with a wall of saturated florals that are familiar but imagined, an impossible arrangement, the result of my own meditations.” Abel’s work, in his own words, “quietly confronts ideas of masculinity through my method of making: embroidery, sewing and quilting. I use traditional quilting patterns, or the quilting notion of using a repeated shape to create a sewn composition as my current guiding method.” “Through the lens of functional pottery I focus on questions about our relationship with objects,” said Donofrio of his ceramic work. James May Gallery is located at 213 Steele Street in Algoma.

(3) From Aug. 3 to Sept. 2, Roxanne Hanney, of Sturgeon Bay, will display pastel and oil paintings at the Hope Art Alcoves, Hope United Church of Christ, 141 S. 12th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay. A preview of her exhibit and a chance to meet the artist will take place 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, Aug. 5, at Hope United Church of Christ. The public is welcome. Taking her inspiration from the natural world, Hanney paints what compels her to look more closely and deeply. Here, she discovers patterns and abstractions, movements and moods. Hanney’s oils feature creamy textures and the vast range of values that permit stark contrasts and the play of light over surfaces. The Hope Art Alcoves is open 9 am-1 pm, Tuesday through Friday and 11:30 am -12:30 pm Sunday.

(4) Linden Gallery in Ellison Bay has a new show opening Aug. 4 devoted to the paintings of Yugoslavian artist Zikvo Zic, particularly his Chicago cityscapes, streets and landmark buildings. His paintings will be on view through Aug. 31. Zic was born in 1924 in the island of KrK, on the Dalmatian Coast of Yugoslavia. He was an impressionistic oil painter whose plein air style is described as “ethereal and lyrical.” When he was a young man, Zic fled his native Yugoslavia when the Communists invaded at the end of WWII. He found his way to Rome, where he simultaneously enrolled at the Scoula di Medicina, Unversita’ di Roma and La Accademia di Belle Arti. In 1947, he moved with his wife to Argentina and began to study with Argentinian artist Salvador Serra. In 1955, Zic had the first of many solo exhibitions in Buenos Aires. In 1962, he and his family moved to Chicago after a 14-year wait for approval to immigrate. Zic had more than 44 solo shows and received many awards for his work. Linden Gallery is located at the corner of Highway 42 and Mink River Road in Ellison Bay. Hours are 10 am – 5 pm daily. Call 920.854.2487 for more information. (5) Fine Line Designs Gallery welcomes August Nine Designs, a contemporary jewelry line, to the gallery for a two-day trunk show Aug. 3 & 4. The show’s hours for the weekend are 10 am to 5 pm on Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday.

Cast forms from nature, circles, and coils display prominently in her work, which she creates her pieces in a light-filled studio surrounded

Enjoy a glass of wine and meet artists Mary White and Gail Gilson-Pierce, who will answer questions from 2-4 pm. White captures the feel of Door County in her dynamic acrylic paintings of sweeping starry nights and blustery summer days. Carlson’s vibrant oil paintings are a year-round reminder of summer sunsets on Green Bay. GilsonPierce’s latest water pieces evoke colorful memories of time spent on the beach. Cohen’s thread paintings capture the movement of clouds on a summer day.

This informative demonstration will prelude a hot wax encaustic class Arteaga will teach at Idea Gallery, Sept. 8, 12-4 pm. The class size is limited to six participants. No prior printing experience is necessary. The class cost of $150 includes all materials and refreshments. The $150 preregistration fee is required for participation. Contact Idea Gallery at 920.655.1340 or idea@ netnet.net to register. (9) Metalsmith Trish Stevenson will be at Turtle Ridge Gallery/Boutique Aug. 7 & 8, 10 am to 5 pm for a pop-up show. Stevenson learned her first metal shaping techniques as a teenager with an English metalsmith. The most important lesson learned in those early years was the value of craftsmanship. Her parents were accomplished naturalists. Their influence continues to

reverberate through her work. Her designs subtly evoke botanic and geologic forms. Stevenson considers herself to be a collector of techniques and has acquired mastery of many of them: raising, forging, stonesetting and construction from the classical repertoire of metalworking as well as anti-clastic hammering and hydraulic die-forming from the more contemporary repertoire. Turtle Ridge Gallery/Boutique, open 10 am 5 pm daily, is located one mile down Mink River Road in Ellison Bay.

(10) Frykman Studio Gallery introduces a

collection of new animals and figures carved from wood recovered from Peninsula State Park’s recently deconstructed Eagle Tower. According to the woodcarver, David Frykman, “Michelangelo saw the artist’s role as simply releasing the figure that was already there in the block of stone. Now I’m no Michelangelo but it’s nice to think about the critters I’m carving from bits of recovered Eagle Tower steps, rails and posts as having waited patiently for all these years for someone to come along and set them loose.” See the collection at Frykman Studio Gallery, 2566 S. Bay Shore Drive, in Sister Bay, or visit FrykmanGallery.com.

by dense trees and pond views in her home of Richmond, Virginia. A balance and trade-off of industrial and organic lends itself well to how Titus describes her work – “handmade jewelry with a delicate edge.” A piece may have multiple layers of thin metal sheets in a nest-like form: conveying the strength and the fragility of a flower petal.

CYCLING TIP Ride Defensively Be aware of what is going on around you, both in terms of roadway conditions as well as other traffic. Watch the road for hazards like sand, broken glass, potholes and railroad tracks. Watch side streets, driveways, alleys and parked cars for traffic that may enter the street in front of you or turn across your path. Remember that trees, shrubs, fences, bright sunlight and darkness can make it difficult for you to see and for others to see you. Adapt your riding style to minimize these and other hazards.

A Legal Approach to Impacts from Factory Farms

A

t 7 pm on Aug. 9, Jessica Culpepper will address the Door County Environmental Council members and friends about her efforts as Attorney for Food Safety and Health, or the Food Project, at Public Justice in Washington, D.C. Culpepper is the grandchild of farmers and is a graduate from a sustainable agricultural college. She has been using litigation to stop pollution from industrial animal food production systems and to

fight for community health and a cleaner environment for more than a decade. “Factory farming extracts resources from rural America. This system of food production strips once vibrant and diverse rural economies, and in its place leaves pollution, loss of land value, and a public health crisis. But if the goal is resilient, strong rural economies, we need more than just one approach to reforming our current food production system,” said Culpepper. Culpepper will explore the need for just public policies, an activated rural base,

and strong legal and grassroots tools to protect rural communities and the planet. She’ll also speak on the need to rebuild food and clean water systems that are just and accountable to people, not corporate profits. This program is open to the public and takes place at Crossroads at Big Creek, 2041 Michigan St. in Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit dcec-wi.org or call 290.743.6003.

ALBERT EINSTEIN

The Dixie Swim Club is a play about the importance of women’s friendships, illustrated by five southern women, in four scenes, covering 33 years of their lives. These women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges that life flings at them. The cast includes Jen Birkholz, Lola DeVillers, Donna Johnson, Jamie Buesing and Debbie Finn. The Dixie Swim Club is directed by Stuart Champeau and will be performed Aug. 9-24. Shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday 2 pm, at Rogue Theater, 340 Jaycee Ct. in Sturgeon Bay. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. For tickets call 920.818.0816.

Regularly we get reports of children being locked unattended in cars that are out in the hot sun with sad consequences. It is inconceivable that after all the warnings adults continue this dangerous practice. Although unrelated I get the feeling that the adults involved are about as mindless as those that stand behind President Trump waving flags and cheering as he lies and makes preposterous statements. It may not disappear entirely but slowly Thump’s base is eroding even among his congressional supporters. People are beginning to realize that he is unqualified, unfit and his recent collapse in

Helsinki showed his cowardliness just as it did by his draft dodging during the Vietnam war. Recent statements such as his warning to Iran show that he is becoming desperate and dangerous. It is conceivable that he would try to get us into a war just to relieve the pressure on him caused by Mueller’s investigation. It should be apparent to most discerning voters that to make Trump look innocent some of the GOP have conducted a relentless campaign to discredit the FBI, the Justice Department and others that are investigating Trump and company. The latest is the filing of impeachment documents against Deputy AG Rosenstein. Concerning the upcoming election it would be difficult for Russia to hack into the closed vote counting of local precincts, so each vote will count. My vote will be guided by voting against anyone who supports or sits idly by as Trump continues his reckless policies. George Krall La Crosse, Wis. No Boulevards Needed I am a local resident and use our Fish Creek Town Park just about every other day. I walk my dog, hike along the creek to see what is new and take my bike through often. I had noticed that since mid-spring there were a lot of bushes along the way that were dangling in hikers’ faces. I was tempted to bring my own trimmer along the next time. It wouldn’t have taken much, but I figured somebody was getting paid for that job and I should leave it to him or her. When I went through today, I found that someone had been through – apparently with a battalion of Sherman tanks. I just don’t understand the thinking behind this type of thinking! This is a town park, for hiking and nature appreciation. Now it looks like a raceway for ATVs, or actually it looks more designed for a Suburban pulling a yacht trailer! Or perhaps an invasion route to Poland? And yet there are still branches reaching out into the path, ready to slap a hiker here and there! The trail is actually more hazardous because of all the roughed up roots that are left behind. One guy with an electric or gas hedge trimmer could have done the job easily in a single day and his work would have hardly been noticed. There are plenty of interesting plants growing along the trail which have now been replaced with a rip zone of bare earth and mangled roots and branches. It is just plain ugly. Not a pleasant walk!

CHARLES MCCABE

It seems that someone just got a new toy – oh I mean a new piece of equipment – and just had to try it out! The same thinking was at work on the big parking lot. There were some very pleasant little trails that were just wiped out, with no connecting links put in. Now a hiker is obliged to stumble through tumbled clumps, rocks and roots to get to where the paths used to go. Were the workers unaware that people regularly use the park? There should have been, at the least, a temporary path skirting the erosion barrier on both sides. Maintenance seems to mean different things to different people. We who live here, and I’m sure many who have been visiting for years, do not need boulevards in our parks, just trails. David Lea Fish Creek, Wis. Be Resilient Against Dangerous Decisions These are certainly interesting times for news events with an update last night on the world news about President Trump deciding to subsidize farmers to help with more than $11 billion lost due to the tariffs he imposed and the resulting trade wars in the world economy. This is becoming an interesting pattern of our President actually creating a crisis and then attempting to be the one to fix it. Unfortunately it’s not going too well for the many hundreds of children taken from their parents with the “Zero tolerance policy,” and now farmers are being told things are ultimately going to come out better when the trade wars are over. As a candidate for our state Assembly I continue to learn more about Wisconsin’s agricultural industry, and I very much appreciated the Pulse’s recent article and information about our state’s strong position leading in the production of a variety of products. My focus will continue to be what we can do as citizens to help our state grow and prosper agriculturally, and in all areas, while being very focused and vigilant on what protections need to be in place to find those “best practices” that will protect and improve our air and water quality. Wisconsin is an important part of the global economy and we have the opportunity to continue to elevate and improve our standards for food production and agricultural standards – we need to be resilient when political decisions seem dangerous.

Seasonal Residents Should Participate in Local Government In response to Mr. Jackson Parr’s “Commentary: Taxation Without Representation” (20 July, 2018) our organization is very familiar with the refrain and have dealt with it off and on for almost 25 years. We agree, of course, with the one-manone-vote rule of law as it applies to elected officials but we do see room for more inclusion in local (read township) issues. Mr. Parr does seasonal residents a disservice when he conflates personal wealth and democratic principles of majority rule and fairness, and while he twice mentions that he “understands” the plight of the seasonal resident, we would disagree. Our research over the years has validated that the vast majority of Wisconsin’s seasonal residents would not participate in the local vote even if it was offered. The vote is not the issue; it’s being heard. Townships in other areas of the state will include their nonresident taxpayers in meetings and hearings and take a nonbinding straw vote to assess their perspective in order to balance the input from all the property taxpayers. Not only does it open dialogue and influence “locals,” it reduces misunderstandings and conflict. Further, we take issue with Mr. Parr’s statement that local officials “have created an environment prompting purchase of a second home.” Quite the contrary. Decades of reassessments and revaluations have resulted in an unfair shifting of the tax base to a point where the major funding of schools, county and local services is borne by the nonresident property tax payer. There is precedent for nonresident voting. Nonresidents can vote on tax levies associated with lake districts; they should be able to participate in the annual meeting on the budget and when the tax levy is established. The budget is for local expenses associated with the needs of all the property owners – all should have a say. We feel there is ample legal argument for changes to be made along these lines for all the approximately 150,000 seasonal households throughout the state of Wisconsin. Nick Kaufmann, past President, Wisconsin Seasonal Residence Association New Lisbon, Wis.

orking with retirees is just part of everyday life for those of us whose business is charity in Door County. Yet there is surprisingly little research on philanthropy in the retirement years. Thankfully, a new study was just released in July that for the first time looked at how charitable giving patterns change as people transition from their careers into retirement. How Women and Men Give Around Retirement was researched and written by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute, a part of the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. Within the study are several conclusions with implications for Door County’s charitable community. One of the most heartening things in the research is how robust people’s commitment is to the charities they care about, even as their financial situation changes. Not surprisingly, when someone retires, household consumption tends to significantly decline. Spending on housing, transportation and education tends to fall dramatically from the years just prior to retirement to those immediately after retiring. Food spending also declines, although more modestly. Overall, total household spending drops 16 percent on average in the five years immediately before and after retirement. Thankfully, charitable giving is an exception. In contrast to the drop in overall consumption, charitable giving tends to hold fairly steady during the transition into retirement. This is equally true whether you measure it in terms of the average size of a charitable gift or the percentage of total household income that is donated to charity. The study also found that many differences in gender and marital status tend to continue into retirement. Numerous studies have shown that single women are more likely to give than single men and they generally give higher amounts than men. Similarly, married couples and single women are consistently more likely to give than single men, even when adjusting for other factors. These same patterns hold true into the retirement years. One of the more interesting observations among retirees is that single retired men demonstrate far greater volatility in their giving. The study notes that the trend line for giving by single retired men fluctuates dramatically, both in terms of likelihood to give and the amount that is ultimately donated. Women and married couples are far more stable in their giving patterns. Were we to view the data purely as a market analysis, then charities might reasonably conclude that retired single men present the greatest new market opportunity for those raising money for a special campaign such as a new building or to create an endowment fund. The study notes that retired men “tend to be more transactional in their giving, often

responding to personal appeals and not engaging as deeply with their organizations they support.” As a group, retired men have been shown to be more volatile in their giving, but research also demonstrates that they can be motivated to make significant charitable gifts with the right approach. The data shows that retired single men may not require a long, deep relationship with a charity before they make a gift. Presumably some combination of a good idea and/or the right fundraising volunteer is sufficient to motivate single retired men to donate. This means that retired single men with financial capacity are a good new market opportunity for Door County’s charities to approach with a request for single, one-time commitment that is the very definition of a special campaign. The data in the study also supports the idea that a different kind of approach is necessary when asking for charitable gifts from single women and couples who are retired. Single women are the only demographic studied whose level of volunteerism goes up in the first year after retirement. In fact, it goes up dramatically. Volunteerism among couples declines slightly immediately after retirement but rebounds quickly in the next few years. Eventually retired couples will volunteer their time at a rate higher than during their working years. Single men, on the other hand, are far less likely to volunteer during their retirement. This difference should cause charities to approach retired single women and couples differently than single men. Rather than the transactional approach of asking single men to give to a special campaign, Door County’s charities would do well to develop vibrant volunteer programs that engage retired single women and couples in their work. The study notes that “women’s deeper engagement and loyalty to the causes they support may lead to more sustained giving, which helps explain their more stable levels of giving around retirement.” The study notes that retired single women and couples tend to be far more consistent in the organizations they support. These kinds of donors provide for the regular and dependable income stream that charities need to thrive. Finally, when you think about retirees and charitable giving, inevitably the conversation turns to a gift in an estate plan. What the study found, however, is that if charity waits to discuss planned giving until a person retires, they’ve often missed the boat. “Retirement is a process,” notes the study. “People think about estate and bequest gifts many years before they retire.” The data shows that the idea to make a planned gift typically begins around ages 45 to 50. Although it may be a decade or more before a charitable donation is actually incorporated into an estate plan, potential donors are ready to have a conversation about an estate gift many years before most charities even think to make the suggestion. Of course, as fascinating as this study is, it speaks to what most people do. We all can think of exceptions to the rule. Regardless, it would behoove the charities of Door County to try to better understand the motivations and actions of those people upon whose generosity the charitable work depends.
