The Peninsula Pulse is Door County’s resource for news, arts and entertainment. It is published weekly and claims a staff of writers, editors, designers, photographers and salespeople deeply entwined with the ethic of the peninsula and strives to be not just a reflection of its community, but a driving force of change and self-examination.

THE HAL PRIZE AT 22 YEARS A few months ago, Steve Grutzmacher, Pulse sales manager and son of Hal Grutzmacher (after whom this contest is named), walked over to my desk to set down an old copy of the Peninsula Pulse. The paper was from Sept. 18, 1998, and Steve told me that he had finally found a copy of the issue that had shared the results of the newspaper’s first lit contest. Besides looking through the issue just to see what the early content of the Pulse was (entertaining, but lacking a bit of journalistic integrity), I was eager to see the beginnings of the contest, which was originally called the Hal Grutzmacher Award for Literature. I looked through the pages and thought Steve was mistaken. I couldn’t find it. Then I slowed down and found it on page 7. The first contest was slim. Two poems and two short stories were

honored; coverage took up only three pages of the paper. Of note, however, was that Ellen Kort served as the first judge. Two years afterward, she was named the first poet laureate of Wisconsin. The contest has seen a lot of growth during the past 22 years, and from its small beginnings, The Hal Prize now recognizes the work of about 40 people. This year we had 414 submissions, with a little more poetry and a little less photography entered this year than last. I was struck by the caliber of the poetry selections and surprised to see the names of past winners entering – and being recognized – in different categories. If you’re an avid reader of The Hal Prize selections, you’ll recognize some of the past names and also see some new names. One new submitter is Jessie Lynn McMains, the 2015-17 poet laureate of

Racine, a self-described “punk poet” and this year’s first-place poetry winner. McMains often visits the county, found out about the contest in a late-April trip and submitted work before the May 1 deadline. It’s encouraging to see people such as McMains enter and be recognized because it shows that our competition can keep growing, broadening and attracting new talent. McMains’ poetry adds a new dimension to what our readers are used to seeing – both in style and subject matter. It keeps the contest fresh and, hopefully, keeps writers and all Hal Prize submitters engaged and even more eager to enter. Next year’s contest is now open for submissions. Enter at thehalprize. com. Alissa Ehmke Assistant Editor

Honoring Harold “Hal” Grutzmacher This annual issue honors a man whose passion for writing and teaching the craft of writing spanned his lifetime. Although his specialty was the English Romantic period, particularly William Wordsworth, he also loved reading (and rereading) 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 persuaded 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 freshman English courses, even though they 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 shared manuscripts, which he helped edit into finished books. His encouragement and gentlethough-pointed criticism influenced innumerable students and community members. Through The Hal Prize, the Peninsula Pulse and Write On, Door County seek to continue in the same spirit by encouraging writers and photographers of all skill levels.

THE HAL PRIZE 201

the

process May 1 has always been a favorite day for me at the Pulse. This is the day of The Hal Prize submission deadline: the day when the work of the submitters is over and my work really begins. It’s then when I can see the creative output from people throughout the country and a few who are a little farther afield. On May 1, I eagerly sort and look through the entries, get a full cup of coffee and start reading – usually beginning with poetry. With the help of a few pre-screeners, including Jerod Santek, the artistic director of Write On, Door County, the submissions are whittled down to a smaller bunch within each of the four submission categories and sent to the judges. The judges then have about two weeks to

consider the submissions and make their final picks. Once we have those, we have a few weeks to format the selections, judge’s comments and bios before everything is handed over to Ryan Miller, the creative director of the Pulse and Door County Living, to lay out the issue you see before you. In a contest that lasts nearly a year, the last month is when everything comes together and the issue becomes fully formed. During the final hours before this issue is sent to the printer, I get emails together to let the winners know of their success, prepare the winners’ prize packages and write thank-you notes to the judges. And in the back of my mind, I’m already thinking about next year:

about which new audiences we can reach, which new writers and photographers will enter, and which names I can add to the “Prospective Judges” list – people who can add a different perspective to the contest. All the while, I’m hoping that submissions will start pouring in as soon as this year’s issue is out in the world – and with that, this particular contest is over. May 1, 2020, really isn’t that far away. Start thinking and creating. Submissions will be accepted starting now at TheHalPrize.com. Happy writing and photographing! Alissa Ehmke Assistant Editor

She has earned more than 115 photography and art awards, including international and national exposure. Meyers enjoys many other forms of art, but photography remains her favorite. This image was taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, where a small child stares in awe at the whimsical jellyfish swirling gracefully in the water.

Comments

“I love everything about this photograph! The colors, the composition, the subject matter, and I love the awe and wonder on the child’s face. The focus is also spot-on, and the light in the image makes your eyes go straight to the child’s eye and center of the jellyfish – right where it’s supposed to.” Photography Judge Tytia Habing

“The beauty of poetry is its dialogic nature, the way a poet talks back to another poet, the way they utilize the structures and rhythms of another poet. But a good poet is able to create something entirely new, something that keeps the heart racing, something that transports and places readers into a tight pocket of a moment. This poem does just that. This poem is beautifully dark, viciously addictive.” Poetry Judge Ira Sukrungruang

and I’m sleeping restlessly, this night after the doctors have unclogged, once more, the pathway to my heart. This heart, battered but still beating, sucking in blood, flushing it out, and now the sweet breath of another day as the ball, wings aflutter, floats away, and I can’t remember if we are keeping score and what part love plays.

That hurts.

CHINESE NEW YEAR: FOND DU LAC by

john Walser

No fireworks to wake the rooster, the dove the horse, the monkey the sun before it sets: no smoke ghosts of flashes dissipating against the ash dusk sky: but what if this cold tail swish dragon’s breath that fans the smoulder, the light the burn, the hardwood flaking to slough, to smear to brume, to paper pressed and inked the black bark characters the leaf bare alphabet of maple trees: gives directions to the season to come: Go slowly. Go confidently? What if it sings a verse about freezing before lightening?

John Walser is a professor of English at Marian University in Fond du Lac. He holds a doctorate in English and creative writing from the University of WisconsinMilwaukee. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous journals, including Barrow Street, Nimrod, December magazine, Spillway, Lumina, The Pinch, Dressing Room Poetry Journal, Yemassee, Iron Horse and Lunch Ticket, as well as the anthology New Poetry from the Midwest 2017. A threetime semifinalist for the Pablo Neruda Prize and a Pushcart nominee, Walser is the recipient of the 2015 Lorine Niedecker Poetry Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers.

“You fall into this poem, and it’s a plummet of images and wordplay and sensorial upheaval. And this is what the poem is trying to grapple with: the fall of time, the descent from one month to the next. The poem makes you realize time doesn’t pass idly. It falls, and the sky is also the ground.” Poetry Judge Ira Sukrungruang

I will come back as a sandhill crane in love with the sky’s sweet pull. — Ellen Kort

This warm spring morning is it you who cries out from the marsh north of my house at times in unison with another or just a single call? I like to think the solitary call is yours as you skim over the cornfield or stand in silhouette against the sun.

Judy A. Kolosso’s poems have earned honors and awards from the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters; Wisconsin People and Ideas; Wisconsin Writers Association; and the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. They have appeared in multiple journals and anthologies, most recently in Bards Against Hunger. Kolosso lives in rural Washington County and is saddened by the loss of family farms.

In March I begin to listen for your arrival hoping you will keep your promise to fly low enough to lay my shadow on the ground Could you dip a wing so I will know for sure it is you— that your feathered soul has touched the earth again.

“Mystique of Small”

by

Kimberly Blaeser

Writer, photographer and scholar Kimberly Blaeser is the author of three poetry collections, most recently Copper Yearning (2019); and the editor of Traces in Blood, Bone and Stone: Contemporary Ojibwe Poetry. Her photographs, picto-poems and ekphrastic poetry have been featured in various venues, including the exhibits Ancient Light and Visualizing Sovereignty. She served as Wisconsin’s 2015-16 poet laureate. “Mystique of Small” is an image Blaeser made while kayaking in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness region of Minnesota. What she took at first to be a flower turned out to be a small feather.

Comments “A really great macro image. Love the delicate feather among the deep, green moss.” Photography Judge Tytia Habing

Guido B.

“Stone Dance” was shot in Antelope Canyon, Arizona. The contrast for me wasn’t the hot-cool colors of the stone, but rather, the intense beauty of the place against the tourist factory that it has become. Crammed in like sardines, the only beauty left was to look up. Guido B. was born in Logan, Utah, and raised in Portugal, Italy, Israel, Oregon and North Carolina. He was first inspired artistically during the year he spent abroad in Italy, where his art teacher, Signore Villa, would mark up his paintings with a black sharpie pen. He began by sketching and painting, as well as developing his photography skills during his travels. Later on, he joined Special Forces and served for three years as an active combat soldier. Afterward, he earned his degree in government and counter-terrorism and today works mainly as a freelance security consultant. Art always has and will have a large place in his life and heart, and he continues to sketch, paint and photograph daily.

He earned an MFA in poetry at George Mason University, and his poems are published in Drunken Boat, The Missouri Review, The Massachusetts Review, Salamander, American Poetry Review and Spork. He has won the Sundog Lit Poetry Contest and has been a finalist for several poetry prizes, including The Brittingham Prize and the Crab Orchard Review Series. Lewis lives in New York City with his wife, son and daughter.

“On Sadness” is set on the beach in Door County and is part of a larger manuscript in which each poem takes its title from Michel de Montaigne’s Essays.

Emigration, i928 by

Diane LeBlanc

Rain fell without apology, just kept coming like a long story. The beginning, swept under, wouldn’t matter because at some point a house would float by, the red geranium on its inside sill a flash of normal that witnesses miles apart would remember. I imagine my grandfather at 22, arriving after the flood, Vermont a wasteland. He must have carried a plaid shirt or two, clean white socks, the suit he’d outgrow before he was naturalized, maybe a picture of the farm in Memracook, maybe a notebook or an English dictionary. Boue, he said. Mud. No word yet for home. In his country, roots and clothesline held the farm in place, but here, inert circuits of tree and grass and fence wire tangled the mud he shoveled from basements. Temporary work. Years later, I watched him divide raspberries with his fish-gutting knife. He was a mean drunk but planted with patience, as if he loved mud: slice, water, plant, water, pack, water. I wonder if he thought of the farm as he settled into the noise and dust of the granite shed. In what language could he ask what if? Or maybe he never doubted, knowing that in the last stage of buffing his reflection would surface, not self-love shining from a pond but a trace of chin and eyeglasses, his presence confirmed in the dim shed light.

“16th & 8th”

My son, black-ingrained into my white poplar skin, was born in Nigeria. In Wisconsin he locks eyes with now-gone ancestors when the ivory cop stops us between seasons in the northern hemisphere. If not buckled up and locked up (temporarily chained, casually free) he’d be down the street, sycamore leaves in his curly, springy hair calf veins flexing deep purple from the leather handicrafts of his first home.

The ticket rips off with an apology. “Is that all?” my son asks, no longer on historical tenterhooks stretched between Wisconsin and Africa. “Is that it?” he spits between our seats and stereotypes. “No cuffs, just 96 dollars with no fuss?”

Great Blue by

Jessie Lynn McMains

That night no sleep would come in the arms of a drunk so, my head bobbing, I wove away from his bed. Too drunk to drive I drove northward toward a safer lover’s arms and in the silver scar the moon burned on the dark surface of the lake — a siege of herons slept, heads tucked under wings, bobbing up and down with the slow lap of water against shoreline. Except one who stood sentry, one-legged. I pulled over and got out, silent as I could. Three steps. Two steps. I slow-shuffled as close as I could get to them, careful not to spook, and the guard-bird set one fierce yellow eye on me, flapped those great blue wings to say he saw. O awkward angels. That night I slept in my car.

keep from dropping him. A spiderlike woman with cherry red glasses that enveloped half her face clucked at her as she passed the rusted sinks. “Got to set an example. Infants are just like sponges.” The mother looked at her smiling little boy. For him everything felt exciting and bright and new. He bounced his chubby thighs and flapped his arms. His eyes widened at the flood of steam when the sauna opened for two women already bent in gossip. Drawing the humid air in great gulping mouthfuls, his lids grew heavy with pleasure. The mother felt the possibility of pleasure, but there it stopped. Scrutinized, as she felt, by a hundred watchful eyes, her face took on the blankness of a Madonna. “Those trunks look tight.” The woman was half made-up, and, with only her lips stained, her eyes disappeared into the colorless face. “Nellie, don’t you think a baby’s most comfortable swimming in a diaper? Less binding.” They had told her the baby needed a suit. She had needed one herself, and Granny had spent the jar money, it was so expensive finding one in the dead of winter. The baby had gone still in her arms suddenly, and she looked down at his perfect small face just as the hot wet warmth hit and spilled over her pelvic bone and down her bare leg. It felt nice, then she felt ashamed. “You can’t just leave that, you know.” The woman held an accusing finger toward the puddle. Of course she knew. These women weren’t the only ones raised right. By the time she gathered a fistful of paper towels, still balancing the child on her hip, him complaining to get down and crawl, hairless elephants parading around her, they were late. The instructor wore a red bathing cap, as did the other three mothers, and the old man holding a baby in a frilled pink suit wore gray. She had no cap. No one had told her. The instructor wore tight navy trunks that set off his caramel skin. He waved her over. “I’m Daniel. You must be Matthew’s mom.” He consulted a clipboard, checked a name. “Matthias,” but he didn’t hear. The first jolt of water took her breath, but she continued down the blue stairs. When the baby’s legs touched the surface he shrank against her, pulled his limbs tight. He made a sound like a stray cat begging. She skipped the last step, plunging him all at once into the pool. He must know how to swim and not be embarrassed when he reached school age, or worse still, grow into a man afraid of the water. She felt certain that her father would not have known how to swim. You could avoid water if you tried. “Bounce. Bounce. Dip their shoulders in the pool. Yes, like that, Josie’s mom.” Daniel looked old, 24 or 25, Puerto Rican, his muscled arms and chest glistening with water droplets. Matthias stared wildly, thrashing,

DOOR COUNTY PLEIN AIR

It smelled like heaven – all toasted wood and citrus shampoo and the raw bite of chlorine under it all – but she had other things to think of. The girl hitched the baby higher on her hip as she peered into each nook between the lockers, desperate for one unoccupied by pale, naked bodies. She didn’t know where to rest her eyes. The baby sprang up and down on her hip, rocking his chubby legs and cooing at the grannies. She found a few feet of bare concrete and knelt, careful to place their towel down first. “Oh, Gloria, look at that baby on the ground.” “On nothing but that itty-bitty washcloth.” The second woman’s breasts hung like two stray oranges in the bottom corners of a net bag. The steam-filled air drew sweat from the baby’s forehead. She needed about seven more hands, and, of course, removing his coat came second to not dropping him, or spilling the shopping bag across the floor. The locker room had not been designed with children in mind. For one thing, there was nowhere to put a baby but the floor; she knew better than to try to balance him on the wooden benches where women with skin like pale Batik sat pulling on hose or finger-combing their damp white floss of hair. “He’s too hot, get that coat off him.” “When a child cries, that means he’s too hot, don’t you know that?” Of course, there were a thousand reasons babies cried. And the boy had begun to wail, not from the coat, which she nevertheless struggled to pull off, but, she felt sure, from the close press of women, the vinegar tang of their breath leaning in, their too-loud voices, their waving brushes and naked plodding. How to get the order right? First her clothes and swimsuit, or first his? What if he peed while out of the diaper? She needed to use the bathroom, too, but could she manage him? She decided to change herself first. In five minutes, they’d be late for class. “What’s that boy’s name?” “Matthias.” She stood with her swimsuit halfway up her legs, struggling with the elastic. His whimper sent an electric tingle through her chest. There’s no stopping the body, and she could only jerk the suit the rest of the way up to cover the slow stream of milk down her belly. “How unusual. Patty, have you ever heard such a name?” “It’s from the Bible.” Granny had picked it, said it would chase the bad seed with good. “Are you suggesting I don’t know my Scripture? Why, I’ve gone to church longer than you been alive, honey.” The women wore plastic sandals. Her own bare feet scraped across the tile as grit worked between her toes. The baby squirmed in her arms as she hovered in the stall, and she gave up the idea of washing her hands, because she needed them both to

body had betrayed her. She didn’t fault hormones or lust, but her mind, for knowing better and not stopping her. It had all been set up in advance, the XX, the knowledge of good and evil. Enough evil to fall upon the good like a pack of dogs, no matter what you did. Yet in the pool, her baby buoyant against her full breasts, the cool of the water, the warmth of her son radiating toward her, in the pool she felt alive. Matthias laughed as she raised him high out of the water and brought him down to show that when you leap, you make a splash. The instructor said this was so that in the future, when the babies learned to jump in for themselves, the splash would not frighten them. She knew better, but lifted him high and crashed him down again all the same.

parents felt the same as Daniel. They brought their children here for recreation, for diversion, for pleasure. She looked at Matthias and pictured her arms failing, his stillness as he slipped beneath the surface, all the while looking up through clear water into her eyes. Expecting. The class ended. Daniel emptied a mesh bag of toys. Ducks and boats cascaded with a terrific crash. The children practiced their reach-andpull, their kicks and splashes, chasing after bright plastic nothings. Matthias strained toward a neon green alligator, but the girl in pink wanted it too. Her grandfather had longer legs, and so he got it. Such dependence exhausted her, the mother, as she registered without thinking that she had failed her tiny son by being short and therefore slow-moving through the water. She failed by being his mother, and not one of the other women here, who likely never saw a state-assistance check and had paid for this class themselves. Even a young woman, if she has had a child, knows the ways a body will fail. The bald spots and weak bones, the foreshadowed droop and sag of it. Her teeth would soften and return to gumming soft fruits, she saw it all clearly now in her son. She knew, with time, her bloom would fade, that no man, not even an old one, would turn to whistle after her. She knew her Granny’s complaints, and that one day they would be her own. She knew the unexpected could carry her off in a moment, without notice (the cross-town bus had struck down her mother). She knew the way a teenager’s body revolted against labor, that nurses would pump such a girl full of drugs, enough to black out her hysteria so they could tunnel in and save the baby. She knew all the boring ways she would break. And a baby could fall to harm. The burden of it weighed on her. Her own

then going still, like a creature fighting for survival. Shouldn’t water feel familiar, comfortable? She supposed that without the hemmed-in feel of her belly it only confused and chilled him. He craned to view the other babies. He wasn’t around many other children, not since she’d dropped out. He nuzzled her chest and clung to her suit. But she was there. Holding him aloft, showing him how to kick while saying the word “Kick.” She was there and that circumscribed all. She, too, was young enough that the sun rising every morning, casting striped shadows through their dusty window, still felt miraculous. She called it zebra light to the boy, and he would smile like an old man with a secret. The other mothers would be grandmothers already in her neighborhood. Nearly half of her friends had a baby – or had quietly gone to the clinic – while still in high school. She’d almost made it, would have graduated that spring, but here was Matthias, and as tired as he made her, she also felt the sweetness of his need of her, that utter dependence and abandon, trust even, of all children toward their mothers. The parents drifted in a loose circle in the shallow end, holding the infants lightly in the pool. The tiny pink girl scrabbled and twisted around her grandfather’s neck to hoist as much of her body out of the water as possible. The old man pushed her back toward the relentless chill. “Show them there’s nothing to fear from the water,” said Daniel. His eyes swept the circle with lazy confidence, as though stating a fact as obvious as breathing. But wasn’t that a lie? Wasn’t there only fear when it came to water? A baby could drown in a few inches. A man could drown as soon as he lost his footing. She looked around the pool and realized that the other

I took my granddaughter to the city park to play, and she decided to play peek-a-boo with me from the top of the tower. She had great fun disappearing and reappearing to play!

The air is thick. Heat sticks to Laura’s skin, climbs under her shirt, all of her body is damp with sweat as she runs up the hill to the creek. Luke, her boy, told her Annie needed help, that the other boys had thrown rocks, that he didn’t know what to do; and so she runs in her long jeans, meant to hide the extra pounds. Loose dirt slides between her feet and her sandals and cuts like finely ground glass with every step. Over the hill, past the camper, and down the rocks to the creek’s edge Laura’s body is propelled by fear. Annie’s clothes lay loose in a small stack on the shore. Her old sneakers are kicked off nearby just like she would kick them off at the front door at home. Cool water covers Laura’s sandals and seeps through the narrow space between the leather straps. Water rises above her ankles, up to the base of her knees making goosebumps rise along her thighs. And there Annie sits naked on the big rock in the center of the creek, knees pulled up to her chin, her bare back exposed, the bones of her spine falling down like a string of pearls. Her sunburned shoulders lift and fall. Lift and fall. She is crying but hardly making a sound. If Laura were to focus on what she can hear now there would be blue jay calls leaping across the water, a distant hum of tires on the paved county road not too far off, the air she needs moving through her head, down her throat, and the almost imperceptible cry of her child, mostly wet breath traveling in and out of pink lungs, hardly any sound at all. There’s blood on Annie’s leg, a nickel-wide red circle of it. Tendrils of red streak down her freckled calf muscle, curl around the bone of her ankle. Laura kneels down in the cool water, letting her jeans become heavy with it, feeling the chill rise over her hips. Water pools between her legs and there is a sensation, quieter than touch, of the cool flesh of water entering her body. She cups the clear creek water in her palms and pours it over Annie’s wound. Dark red dilutes and flows down Annie’s leg in a thin pink curtain. Again and again Laura pours the water until just pin-tip bubbles of blood remain in the circle of skin cut away and this is when she notices that the pale blonde fuzz that once swept across her daughter’s legs is gone and this is when she knows what has happened. Annie shaved her legs. She had missed a few spots; strips of short hair like peninsulas still emerge from her warm skin. Laura wants to admonish Annie. She wants to say you’re too young but the words lodge dry and brittle against her back teeth. The words explain that the hair will come back thicker, darker, more like a man’s whiskers. It’s like the hairs are angry that we don’t just leave them alone. They’re angry at us for wanting something better. Laura feels heat in the center of her chest. A ball forms just below the hollow of her throat when she thinks of the boys coming down to the creak to find Annie sitting here. This stunning girl glowing in the sun must have burned their eyes and so they threw rocks at her to save

themselves. Rocks flew, some hit her, some plopped in lazy creek water and they hollered and they laughed and she turned away, curled into herself as small as she could and felt the sting of them like a sand storm against her taut skin. Laura lifts Annie from the rock and she still is so light even though it is almost time for 4th grade. Annie tucks her face into the nook of Laura’s neck like she did when she was little. Annie is light but all of Laura’s body is heavy, heavier than it’s ever been and weighted down more by her saturated clothes. Every step brings a burn to her thighs and her back muscles sear when she has to bend low to avoid a tree branch at the top of the embankment. Back in college a roommate asked Laura if she knew how intimidating her height was to other women. It was a surprise for Laura to know she intimidated anyone. It seemed impossible when her insides trembled like they did, like her heart was made of cold gravy. She learned that night while they talked that Laura is especially frightening when she is focused on something, like when she is running late and walking with urgency to class or studying French. You should smile more, is what she had always been told. Don’t be so serious all the time. Laura balances all of Annie’s weight in the sling of her right arm as she tugs on the camper door. It pops open easy with the shuck of metal against metal. The kids’ camper is narrow and cluttered. The beds are pulled out and unmade from the night before. Crushed pop cans litter the table along with a deck of cards tossed every which way like one of the older kids asked a young one if they’d ever played 52 Pickup. A greasy Tupperware bowl holds a small handful of shiny gold popcorn seeds. Laura lays Annie on the largest bed in the back of the camper and fights the urge to speak. If she could have it her way, Annie would be telling her every detail of what happened without any prompting. But as it was and had been for many months, Annie didn’t talk much, not like she used to before her dad moved in with Rebecca. Laura had tried begging Annie to speak, tried bribing her with gifts and her favorite food, warm banana bread damp with butter. Laura even cursed and threw a plate across the kitchen one night; just the thought of that night, the sound of the thick plate cracking against the far wall, the thud of its pieces hitting the tile and sliding every which way, the clock that fell to the floor and never kept time again, just the thought, made Laura’s stomach ball up like a wad of socks. After that she didn’t bother Annie about her silence. Someday she will speak again in that loose and light way she once had. Someday she won’t be so serious all the time. The camper floor creaks and bows beneath the weight of her body. Laura kicks a grape pop can out of her way and pulls open the cupboard door next to the bathroom, grabs the first aid kit, the tall brown bottle of peroxide, a stack of square white napkins. When she flips open

the plastic latch of the first aid kit, the bandages and gauze that had been stuffed inside billow out as if they are taking a desperate breath. Annie hides her face under her long freckled arm. Laura knows that feeling of wanting to hide. When Rebecca comes to pick up the kids Laura wants to run but instead she stands at the door with all of her height blaring, their overnight bags in her hands wondering if Rebecca is intimidated by her; wondering if she’s getting too fat, thinking about how pretty she used to be back in college, before the kids, when they found their first apartment and he snapped that Polaroid of her asleep on the old pea-green sofa. Rebecca always smiles when she arrives and, even now a year later, her chin still trembles a little when she looks Laura in the eyes. Annie had asked Laura in the car not long ago, Mom, do you think dad left because Rebecca is prettier than you are? The question, let loose in the small cavern of the car, flung itself against the closed windows like it was trying to get out, like it was a trapped bat. I don’t know, Annie, is all she said. She almost said, probably. And, who cares? But that didn’t seem right. Laura hoped that her response opened a window, so the question could fly away. But there are wise words she should have uttered instead. Laura knows that, but she has no idea what they might sound like.

And now Annie asks, will it hurt? Probably, Laura says, but we have to clean it up. And then she wants to ask questions too. Questions like, why do you think it matters so much? Being pretty? Does your dad seem happy? Why doesn’t he ever come to pick up you and your brother anymore? Why does he always send her? But Laura doesn’t ask any questions. She holds the bottle steady and fills a capful with clear peroxide, then pours it over her daughter’s wound while cupping a napkin beneath, so the white paper becomes pink with diluted blood and the circle where the skin used to be is coated in clean white bubbles. Does it hurt too much? She asks Annie. Not too much. Her face is still hidden beneath her arm. Are there bubbles, mom? Yes. That means it’s working. I know. I think you’ll have a scar this time. That’s okay. Yeah, that’s okay. How many scars do you have, Mom? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe five or six. Did they hurt? I guess they did. The older a scar gets, the harder it is to remember. I think I’ll always remember this scar. I think I will too. Rebecca will be here soon. Is there time to sleep a little? Sure. Laura reaches over Annie’s body and slides open a small square window, one on each side of the bed, and a cool breeze pours inside.

Annie inhales an excited clutch of air as Laura stands up. Hear that, Mom? Blue jays. Her eyes shine up at Laura, glisten turquoise. Sea glass in the sun. They’re far away, but all around. Can’t you hear them, Mom? Sure, I hear them. No you don’t. The sun leaves her eyes. You’re lying. Just sit here. Annie pats the bed. Sit still. Just listen.

The Spotlight

THIRD

Fall Scarlett had been down this road countless times, yet today, it felt foreign. Quiet, cold, barren – a stark contrast to the summer with its steady flow of over-packed cars towing campers and trailers sardined with bikes and coolers. She had always felt lucky being able to stay for two months while most had to cram their adventures into a weekend. And even though her grandparents’ cottage was small, most of their time was spent outside so it never felt cramped. But it was fall and everything they passed was shut down. A wood plank across the serving window at The Frosty Tip proclaimed, See you next summer! The racks at Dockside Sports, once stacked with paddle boards and kayaks, sat empty. Even The Bay Breeze motel had closed, its lakeside line of Adirondack chairs void of tourists. Scarlett’s mom broke the uneasy quiet in the car. “Won’t it be exciting to see how the lake changes throughout the seasons?” she asked with feigned enthusiasm. Scarlett glanced at her younger sister, Grace. Grace stared blankly out the window. The girls had learned previously unfamiliar terms over the last few months – downsizing, seniority, furlough. They understood why they needed to sell their house, they just weren’t prepared for it to sell so quickly. And although they would still be able to see their friends at school, they’d be living too far from town to participate in evening activities. For Scarlett, that meant figure skating. Even though competitions were a source of anxiety for her, she just couldn’t imagine not heading to the rink every day. Her high school teammates, her coach, Jamie, the sound of her blades on the ice – she would miss it so much. She felt her jaw tighten. “It’s just temporary,” her mother reassured. “Just until we find something within our price range back in town.” It was almost dark as they rounded the last bend. The tree canopy that once created a welcoming tunnel to the lake was now stripped of leaves, bare branches skeleton-like against the fall sky. Wally could see headlights across the lake slowly navigate the last turn of the driveway at the Ericksons’ place, then park between the big cedars. He had been sitting at the table by the large picture window, working to finish the day’s crossword puzzle. The headlights caught him by surprise as he knew the Ericksons were summer people and most cottages had already been closed up for the winter. He had built the table by hand and it was here he and Elise had sat for every meal, plus their mid-afternoon coffee. It was narrow, but fit the space, and was close enough to the woodstove to stave off the morning chill. An antique stained glass lamp sat centered on the table. Elise always preferred the warm lighting of lamps to ceiling fixtures so insisted that the table have one. Although Wally often complained that it took up too much room and made the Scrabble board hang precariously over the edge, he

knew she was right. The lamp light was much more pleasing. She was always particular about her lighting. Now, without Elise, there was plenty of space on the table. Too much space, Wally thought. Winter Space. Of all the aspects of living in town that Scarlett missed, it was her own space that she longed for the most. The main level of the cottage proved cozy and warm, but it was just one room for her entire family. It reminded her of those rare rainy summer days when everyone was forced to stay inside. How quickly they grew tired of puzzles, Monopoly and each other. She sensed the walls closing in and retreated to the attic bedroom she shared with Grace. They slept in twin beds on either side of the room. When they were little, they loved the roof so close to their heads and pretended they were in a ship’s berth. Now as teens, the angled roof didn’t allow them to sit up without hunching their backs, so they spent most of their time cocooned under patchwork quilts, eyes fixated on Netflix and cruising social media. Tiny square windows were centered on each end wall, one overlooking the lake, one facing the gravel drive. Positioned directly across from one another, the windows provided a much-needed cross breeze on sticky August nights. Now mid-winter, they were decorated with floral patterns of frost. Her thoughts turned to her friends at the rink, lacing up their skates for lessons while the Zamboni refreshed the ice after junior hockey. How fast those first laps were on that flawless ice. She shook her head to stop the memory, but not before a tear had escaped. The sound of activity on the lake woke Scarlett the next morning and her curiosity drew her out from under the warmth of her blankets. Through the frosted pane, she could make out a fisherman using his snowmobile to tow a shanty out past the mouth of their bay. Her heart quickened as her mind calculated. If the ice was thick enough for a snowmobile out there, where the waters were much deeper, the ice in front of their cottage could certainly hold her. A surge of excitement sent her rummaging through bins to find her skates. Wally, too, had seen the fisherman. He watched as he detached his shanty, secured it to the ice and fetched an auger, five-gallon bucket and other supplies from the sled. Oldies droned from the cottage radio with an occasional hint of static. The static didn’t bother Wally. He really wasn’t listening. The radio was just a way to punctuate the stillness. When Elise was here, the calm of the winter lake was magical, but in her absence, quiet outside and quiet inside proved to be too much. He welcomed anything that could break up the silence. Eventually, the fisherman settled into his shanty. Before turning away from the window, Wally’s eye caught movement out on the lake. A girl on skates cautiously moved away from the opposite shore. He knew someone was staying at the Erickson place, but

he was surprised to see a young girl – typically only retired folks stayed at the lake year-round. The ice creaked and moaned as Scarlett wobbled away from the shore. She was nervous at first, but after a few minutes of slow glides, her confidence improved and she ventured further out on the lake. She increased her speed. She felt free and welcomed the familiar sound of her blades on the ice. Her energy, pent up for months inside the tiny cottage, flowed onto the frozen stage. She envisioned an audience, except this time, there were no nerves. She circled. She looped. She spun. No fear of falling. No fear of forgetting the routine. No fear that someone would skate better, stronger, faster. Occasionally, an imperfection in the ice sent her stumbling, a reminder that she was far from the Zambonismooth ice of her old rink, but she’d regain her balance, motivated by the freedom of her space. She was invigorated. Not until the cold stiffened her feet did she head back to the warmth of her boots, already thinking about returning to the ice after school the next day. Wally was sorry to see the girl go. “Well that was delightful! She’s an athletic, powerful skater just like you were,” he said aloud to the memory of Elise. “I can’t remember the last time I saw someone skating out there. It was probably us!” The two had spent so much time skating that Wally even put up a floodlight so they could enjoy the lake after dark. He smiled at the memory of installing the light. He had affixed it to the tall wooden pole topped with a purple martin house. As he teetered precariously on the ladder, Elise skated circles out on the ice, directing him to “move it more to the right… no, my right!” “It’s a little hard to figure out your instructions when you’re moving in a circle!” Wally retorted. Elise erupted in laughter, her appreciation for his comeback echoing across the frozen bay. She was always particular about her lighting. Once the light was adjusted to her liking, they partook in after-dark skates nearly every night. She always remarked that the cold air was good for clearing your mind. She even went out occasionally after she had gotten sick, when the treatments didn’t make her too tired. “Up for a skate, Old Man?” she’d say with a laugh on her way out the door, skates slung over her shoulder. They’d skate arm-in-arm, the cold air numbing their cheeks, numbing their toes, numbing the reality of her horizon. Sometimes he’d let her go alone, choosing instead to sit at the picture window and watch her skate under the lights. With precision and grace, she’d etch impeccable figureeights over and over. She made it look so easy, gliding effortlessly across the ice. It was nearly sundown by the time Scarlett returned from school the next day, so she quickly grabbed her skates and headed down to the shore to laceup. Confident from yesterday’s skate, she made her way quickly toward the center of the bay where she

remembered the ice was smooth and consistent. Just like before her lessons at the rink, she skated big circles to warm up her legs, increasing speed with each lap. She decided to skip the jumps for today – too much uncertainty on the landing with the impending darkness – and went right into spins. The twirling figure caught Wally’s attention as he passed the picture window. With fuel for the woodstove in hand, he stopped and squinted into the fading light. The girl was back on the ice. He marveled at her ability to spin so well on lake ice. She was confident and fearless he thought. “You were fearless, too,” he said aloud to Elise. Thinking of how in her last days she was the one comforting him. Making him promise that he’d stay active. Insisting that he not hermit his days away after she died. “Don’t let your light fade just because mine is gone,” she had said. Wally refocused on the girl. It was nearly dark now. He made his way to the side door, paused… then hit the light switch. Alarmed by the sudden flood of light, Scarlett abruptly stopped midspin, a spray of ice coming off her braking skate. Her very own spotlight. She squinted past the light to the tiny cottage up on the hillside with the big picture window. By the lamplight she could see a man – the man responsible for her well-lit stage. Wally assumed that her enthusiastic two-handed wave meant that she appreciated the extra skating time. He was actually surprised that the light still worked since it hadn’t been used in so long. He was happy to have a front-row seat and gave the girl a standing ovation when she bowed, signaling the end of the night’s performance. The spotlight was still on when the Scarlett cozied into her bed – its light through the window panes projecting four squares onto her ceiling. She thought of the panes as seasons and how drastically different they were here on the lake. Summer was warm breezes, popsicles on the porch and kayaking on the bay. Fall brought bold colors and bonfires. And now lake skating has provided an appreciation for winter. She burrowed deeper under the covers, her mind replaying her spotlight skating session. Wally remained at the picture window long after the girl had gone back to her cottage. A light snow was falling – occasionally swirling, dancing across the ice. He was entranced. His mind played back Elise’s words, “Don’t let your light fade just because mine is gone.” He missed her. He thought of how she would have loved skating on a night like tonight. “You up for a skate, My Friend?” he said aloud, and headed for the door.

He figured it this way: he was past twenty-nine years old now and was not always going to be young and strong like he was now. It might prove handy someday to know how to do something practical, like barbering. After all, he couldn’t depend on farm work, limited as that was, and low-paying, too. And the rodeo circuit, where he could make the big money sometimes, was for young, strong men. Not too many old men made much in the rodeo. Oh, a few maybe. He had heard of them, but not too many. If they were older and experienced, sometimes they lost their nerve and that made riding those wild broncs and steers all but impossible. You had to be a little loco to do it first off, anyway, and he certainly had taken his share of lumps riding the rodeo route. Broken ribs several times, a broken leg once, a couple of teeth knocked out, and a helluva lot of bruises – more than he could count. One day, the way he had it figured, he would lose his nerve, like other men he knew or had heard about, and he wouldn’t have whatever it took again to climb up on one of those crazy mean horses or steers. Though now he was frequently earning near his year’s wages riding in competition. It was with all of that and more on his mind that he set out from the South Dakota reservation heading south for Dallas via Oklahoma City. Behind the wheel of his 1956 Pontiac Catalina, a gas-gorging monster, he wasn’t at all certain that it would carry him the entire distance to Dallas. In fact, he wasn’t so certain it would take him to Oklahoma City, where he had a brother working on another relocation project, a program for auto mechanics. The year was 1965, and while the relocation programs had kind of become used up – that is, officially unpopular with program developers – the push now was to somehow develop the existing reservations and keep Indians at home. There was, nevertheless, still quite a lot of relocation money around. And so, with a little of this money, Mr. Lewis gave him a travel allowance. He was off for points south – Texas, finally. The night before he left, Jefferson had a few beers with friends and again listened to them say things like, before they would go to him for a haircut, Indians were going to begin wearing their hair long and braided as in the old days. “You’ll have to be a white man’s barber with no white men for customers,” one young man said. They

laughed and Jefferson took it all in, showing that white toothy grin of his. “Maybe, maybe,” he said. That’s all he said. Jeff was a good-looking man; everyone said that. Tall at nearly six feet and trim and firm – stronglooking. He had to be that way to ride the rodeos the way he did each year. The next morning he had on his best white western hat, a new red plaid woolen shirt, and his best jeans, freshly washed and pressed for the long ride to Texas. He felt good as he got on the state highway out of Mission Town and headed east toward Sioux Falls. He hoped the old car would carry him okay the first leg to Oklahoma City where, if he had trouble, there was always that brother of his, Ralph – supposedly a welltrained auto mechanic, who could put the Pontiac back together if it came to that, before he began the last leg of the journey on to Dallas. Somewhat to his surprise, the car not only carried him to Oklahoma City without a hitch, but clear through to Dallas, hardly missing a stroke. One flat tire was all the trouble there was. Being spring and the weather mild most of the way, the journey took almost no effort at all. When he arrived in Dallas, he enrolled in barber school as he had promised he would and settled in for the summer – a long, hot and dull summer, he expected. Come along about late June, however, he was getting awfully restless and damned bored with all that barbering business. It didn’t seem that difficult to him, cutting hair – a cut here, a snip there, and that was it. What the hell was all the training about? he wondered. But he stayed on until he read about a little rodeo activity over near West Texas somewhere, and before very long he was traveling all over Texas entering rodeos all he could and doing very well, as usual. One week in Amarillo; another week at San Antonio. One time, even as far west as El Paso. But it paid off handsomely and he could pretty much keep up his end with the barbering school in Dallas. They didn’t like all his absences, but there weren’t very many students that summer. The instructors, like teachers anywhere, he figured, would do whatever was necessary to keep the program alive – or appearing to be alive – and thereby keep their jobs. So they put up with his absences without much complaining. In the meantime, he had earned seven-thousand dollars riding those

Rodeo Circuit

broncs and steers all around Texas. Come early October, he decided he’d had just about enough of that barbering business and headed north again for the winter – to South Dakota and the Rosebud Reservation – to home. By this time, he had pretty much forgotten all the talk from his friends about barbering and how silly it was. He just sat back and enjoyed the easy ride home in his brand-new Chevrolet pickup truck, luxuriating in all those extras like air conditioning and AM-FM stereo radio. Yes, it was a very pleasant ride, most of it, and when he pulled into Mission Town on the reservation late one warm fall evening and stopped in at Arlo’s Bar to have a couple of beers, he wasn’t thinking much about how it must have seemed to those same friends he’d left behind. That is, his coming home after one summer away with a new truck and money in his pocket and new clothes. All the things he didn’t have when he left. No, it didn’t occur to him at all, and he didn’t see a need to explain. He just stopped in at the Mission Town bar for several beers and went on home to his father’s place at Antelope, outside of Mission Town. But soon enough, you can be sure, the word got around how Jefferson had returned with a new truck and a lot of money to spend. News spread via the moccasin telegraph, the wordof-mouth communication that seems to move faster than a prairie fire with a strong wind whipping it along. Before long, relatives and friends and people who hardly knew him, or knew him only by sight, were talking about his good fortune at the relocation barbering school in Dallas. No one had bothered to ask him how he came by all that money, naturally figuring he had earned it through relocation, and he didn’t feel the obligation to explain how he had simply had a real good year on the rodeo circuit. No, he kept quiet. A few days later, Ben Lewis met him on the street in Mission and goodnaturedly accused him of doing it on purpose; that is, letting folks think he made the money on relocation at Dallas to get back at those who’d ribbed him about going to barbering school in the first place. “You know how many people I had in my office yesterday?” he asked Jefferson, smiling – almost laughing – as he spoke, and not waiting for him to reply. “And every one of them asking about going on relocation for barber school in Dallas! There must have been fifty or more. I just couldn’t figure how the program got so popular

almost overnight. Only a couple of weeks ago I couldn’t find one man who wanted to go. Naturally, I was suspicious and so I asked around some and heard you were back and sporting a new truck and money, and then I understood pretty much what was going on. You see, I got reports you were missing a lot of the training because you were busy with the rodeos.” “How many did you say you had?” Jefferson asked, showing that white, toothy smile again. “Fifty, if I had one. And I had one hell of a time getting everyone to understand that you couldn’t possibly have earned all that money on a relocation program. But some didn’t believe me and one man cussed me out when I suggested he wait a bit before making out the application. He thought I was lying to him, I guess.” “Well, Mr. Lewis,” Jefferson said, obviously enjoying what he had heard, “anytime you want someone to drum up a little business for relocation, you come see me.” And still grinning, he decided to go look for his friends at Arlo’s to see which ones had signed up for the relocation barber program at Dallas – that same program they had all but said no one but a dumb Indian would want. Every one of them had been in to see Ben Lewis, he learned, and when he heard this he laughed again. Oh, yes, in time he did get a barber’s license in South Dakota. And until fairly recently, he had a barber shop in downtown Mission, South Dakota. Of course he had grown much too old for the rodeo circuit.

I used to live on an Indian reservation in south central South Dakota. “Rodeo Circuit” is one of many short stories I have written about the contemporary Indian world. There have been two or three novels as well.

The last time I saw my mother was February 26th, 1996. She was laid out in a handcrafted wooden coffin the color of acorns my father had made for her in between teaching his sophomore-level industrial design classes and overseeing the 3D lab at the art college he had co-founded and taught at since 1975. Once finished, the box was kept in my uncle’s garage until it was needed to transport her lifeless body to the crematorium. She wore the spruce green, longsleeved, jersey dress she had picked out especially for her pending death, green and white knitted mukluks with worn-thin leather soles, and nothing more to adorn her body. My mother and the wooden box had been placed on the wooden dining room floor she had painted cobalt blue a few years earlier in our family home, waiting for the cover to be lifted into place. * * * I recently moved home to the 10acre farm located 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee my parents purchased in November of 1969, property that sprawled across the steep, glaciermade hills of the Kettle Moraine. The original 110-acre land parcel, homesteaded in 1840, was used as a dairy farm by its first set of German owners and was gradually sold off over time by six different owners, leaving the remaining 10 acres, the farmhouse with no running water or central heat, two barns – one long-deserted milking parlor and one small barn for heifers – and an odd assortment of declining outbuildings for my parents’ first go at homeownership. The land where I had shared most of my childhood with my parents, an older and a younger brother, a younger sister, four hunting dogs, two ponies, a yard full of colorful chickens, four domestic rabbits, a raccoon baby, and eventually several cats, but only after my mother first insisted on adopting two, too-young kittens to nourish. * * * I didn’t want the coffin cover put into place. I wanted more time with my mother, alive and not sick from ovarian cancer. My older brother told me of his rising panic on the plane flight from his home in California to Wisconsin that our father would wisk our mother’s body off before he had a chance to see her, say good-bye. I said I wouldn’t have let that happen. Emotions ran amok in our house during the four months of her illness. My attempts at caring for her at home along with the occasional hospice nurse visits and trying to maintain some sort of “normalcy” failed miserably. I always felt like I could never do enough to keep her comfortable. She once got angry with me for dumping out a cup of cold

coffee. I said I would get her a fresh cup but she refused it saying the first one had been exactly the way she liked it. Cold? Like the way her skin had felt when I pulled on her spruce green jersey dress when she was dead? * * * Our family property became available when my younger brother had been offered a new job in Stoughton. Since it was an hour-and-ahalf daily drive to and from the house to his work, he and his wife decided to purchase a home in Columbus to end his endless commute. They had been living with and caring for our aging father for two years – a responsibility I had been asked to originally consider but steered clear of since, in the past, my father and I rarely could be in each other’s company for more than ten minutes without starting some sort of argument. Aging had left our father vulnerable to falls, foggy thoughts, and forgetfulness, but after he became a resident in an assisted living memory unit, my brother took the opportunity to move on, leaving the house empty for either me and my husband, my older brother and his wife, or my single, younger sister to inhabit. I thought my younger brother would be the one to buyout the property since he was the only one of the four siblings who had voiced any interest in owning it, so I was shocked and then distressed to find out he was moving. Besides, my older brother and his wife lived on the West coast and weren’t interested in returning to Wisconsin, my sister couldn’t manage the property’s upkeep on her own, and my husband and I hadn’t planned on moving back. I had clung to my assumption because it meant I wouldn’t have to return to the house to poke around in the past. * * * I remember my mother sitting on the edge of her bed in her bedroom located on the first floor next to the kitchen and the dining room with its painted blue floor and the doorway to the laundry room addition my father had built the first summer we lived in the farmhouse. She wore a pair of maternity jeans to accommodate her growing belly from the abdominal tumors, a long-sleeved jersey shirt, an expensive white sweater she bought at Boston Store when we had gone shopping two summers earlier, her brown ankle-high moccasins with soles worn shiny, and the plastic breathing tube she needed to survive. She had asked me in slow, metered breaths if there was anything I wanted from her. I stood there, numb from her pending death. I said no. I wished I had asked her to live another 30 years or more. I wished I

* * * After several phone calls a few days apart from my older brother, who had become P.O.A. of our dad and the property, asking me and then begging me to move back, I relented and said I would drive over to take a look. I knew I couldn’t leave the house empty – someone had to care for it. I just wished it wasn’t me. My husband parked his truck in the lumpy, frozen driveway on a gray afternoon in early January. We got out to check on things. He found a shovel to clear the snowy sidewalk, and I went inside the house to see if my younger brother and his wife had left anything behind. I stepped into the first room of the house – the dining room, the blue floor now covered with colorless carpeting. The same room where our family had gathered for dinners and holidays around a table “borrowed” from my dad’s sister when my parents were first married, where we’d come home from grade school to find the table full of homemade cookies, where my mother hurled “slut” at me before I knew what it meant, where my sister refused to eat a chicken supper because she was sure it was her beloved butchered rooster, where my younger brother cut fat off his meat with the precision of a surgeon, where I learned to eat left-handed because my older brother nudged me with his elbow every time I tried to eat with my right hand. The same room where my mother announced – stunning us all – her six-month death sentence from inoperable 4th-stage ovarian cancer. Standing within the silence of the dining room and knowing my mother had been gone for nearly twenty-one years, I still wanted her to walk out of the kitchen to ask me how things were or to show me the new seeds she had received in the mail for her plant nursery or did I want a piece of bread she had baked earlier that morning? Would I ever get used to missing her?

But what I didn’t want to remember the most was the silence after the oxygen machine had been turned off, its once-steady breathing blended into the background along with the other sounds of her daily life that had included classical music from her kitchen radio, MPR after lunch for a Chapter-A-Day, the old wooden floors that creaked in familiar places as she moved throughout the house, and her voice when she talked on the landline to a friend who had called to see how she was doing. Once she was gone, I had avoided the house. Now, I was being asked to live there.

* * * On the first day I went over to the house to start cleaning before we painted, I still wasn’t sure if I was up to the task. Was it even worth living there? I figured I’d start with the second floor and work my way downstairs. I went upstairs to the hallway where two maple dressers stood for the last 48 years. They had been a part of a bedroom collection my parents had purchased as a wedding gift from my paternal grandparents back in 1959, but my mom had sold the full-size, four-poster bed to a family friend – something I wished she hadn’t done. I would have liked to have had all of the pieces. I held a can of furniture polish and a soft cloth to clean the dressers, something that obviously hadn’t been done in years. Grumbling to myself and listening to the radio play classic rock, I sprayed an even amount across the surface of the eight-drawer dresser, hoping the polish would bring back some lustre to the wood finish. As I made my first swipe with the cloth, I swear I my mother stood near me and said thank you. I stopped mid-swipe. I looked around. I then turned back to my task. I smiled and

I spent last summer recovering the remnants of my mother’s former plant nursery. I was sure my father had sold off all of her flowers after her death, which had, at the time, left gaping holes all over the yard when the plants were dug out, but I was amazed by the number of perennials that had held on to flower again as spring moved into summer. The more I took back the overgrown yard, the more of her original plants I found. After spending an afternoon replanting daylilies she had bred, I leaned on the shovel handle for a break. Body aching and sweating in the sun, and as a light breeze brushed my skin, I thought it’s good to be home.

“The author writes an elegy in this essay for her mother. She captures the conflicted feelings that come with deaths of loved ones. Her attention to details like the description of her mother’s ‘slow, metered breaths’ make every page a discovery. This is original and timeless.”

THE HAL PRIZE 201

nonfiction SECOND

The Trouble with Ellen by

Kathryn Gahl mimeograph machine and someone went nuts. Maybe it was a spitball, copied homework, or a love note read out loud. The exact nuttiness doesn’t matter. What mattered was the tattling that followed, a code among classmates broken, by someone blurting to the woman in black with starched white cardboard framing her face. Sister Mary Francis had cheeks with red pores and buckshot for eyes: the face of a possum. Beautiful, tanned, and permed Ellen tattled to Sister Mary Francis. Gave out four names of fellow students, two boys, two girls. And out came the ruler. Not on the hands. On the backside. Humiliation flamed up in the four, unjustly accused. So there was point number three that Ellen gave everyone in class – everyone – one more reason to hate her. At recess, someone said to her, Wish you were dead. We all cheered but she held her ground. She was, after all, a doctor’s daughter. That gave her executive privilege and pastoral protection (Daddy gave lots of money to the church and school) – this, in addition to the prettiness, perm, and tan. We had an impromptu roller skating party that Friday night and Ellen wasn’t invited. We couldn’t wait to see her Monday face, see if a hair was out of place, for that was the thing about perms; they guaranteed to never have a bad hair day.

Monday came and Ellen wasn’t in school. Maybe she got sick of herself, someone said after Mass. We giggled, smug and out of range of the priest. Back in the classroom, we settled into our lunchbox breakfasts – fasting was required for Communion, so we could swallow the host every school mass morning. Then, Sister Mary Francis clapped her hands. “Class. Continue eating,” she said solemnly, “and as you take in your meal, take in too the sorrow of Ellen and her family.” We stared at possum. Her eyes had sucked themselves farther into her head. She folded her hands. Looking out over the tops of our heads, she appeared to be in a trance. Then, in a near whisper, she said, “Ellen’s father died of a heart attack this morning.” The room fell silent, even squiggly Eugene who ate white paste and staples and did anything to get attention. Now, the attention was on Ellen. And she wasn’t even there with her beautiful, bright, tan, and newly permed self. She would never be the same. And neither would we – our hatred had caused her father’s death. In fact, it was the first time we learned of the power of hate. And we worried whether our sin could fit in the confessional box – and what penance could we possibly serve.

Kathryn Gahl’s past lives include model, barkeep, registered nurse, single parent, teacher and trauma survivor. Now a multi-genre writer and storyteller, she dances ballroom and befriends many. Her works have won awards from Glimmer Train, Margie, Talking Writing, The Mill, New Millennium Writings, The Hal Prize, Chautauqua, Wisconsin People & Ideas and the Lorine Niedecker Poetry Award for 2019.

Comments

There were three things wrong with Ellen and by fourth grade, we all knew what they were. None of them alone nor all of them together, however, should have caused the bad thing that came into Ellen’s life. Though we didn’t know that at the time. We Catholics saw cause and effect between bad thoughts and bad consequences. Like, if you dreamt of a fire and the next day the neighbor’s house burned down, you knew it was your fault. And impure thoughts: if you had one of them and then broke out in a rash, well, it was easy to conclude how thoughts created reality. And the reality in fourth grade was that Ellen was pretty, smart and rich (not much to like there). So here’s point number one: she got her hair curled – a “permanent,” in a real hair salon. No one had ever done that. No mother had even attempted to apply a Toni Home Permanent to create poofiness. Ellen’s perm brought out her high, round cheekbones and green eyes. Green eyes that looked like jewels with her newly tanned skin, which was point number two. No one had a tan in January but Ellen did, from a Florida vacation. We got summer tans, from picking beans and making hay. A perm plus a January tan? It was enough to keep her away from us at recess. One day, the nun in our classroom left to fetch handouts from the

“This essay tells a poignant tale in brief, well-chosen words. It centers on a childhood memory that gives the flavor of early understandings. The first death experience for a class of fourth-graders is made unforgettable. The author is able to suggest the setting of Catholic school, economic social classes and childhood.” Nonfiction Judge Thomas Pecore Weso

I asked the waitress for a quiet table. She led me to the back of the restaurant and offered me a comfortable booth. Though I had a bag full of books to occupy me, I put my chin on my upheld palm and watched the lunch bunch. After my order came, between bites of salad I looked up and saw a man come into view. He was walking toward a table without escort and stopped behind a waitress who was facing a wall-mounted cash register. I didn’t have time to really look at him, but I couldn’t avoid seeing what he did. With his left arm he grabbed her waist and with his right he reached under her arm, over her breasts and pinched her face in his hand, pulling her head back against his chest. His fingers closed around her mouth. She didn’t fight. There was an instant when she seemed to go limp and then he released. He proceeded down the aisle and found a table across from mine. What he had done to the girl was his way of saying hello. “Is there anything else I can get for you?” my waitress asked as she stopped by my table. “Do you see that man over there?” I asked, looking in his direction, “He isn’t a nice person.” After I described the incident she said, “I know she didn’t like what he did because she asked me to wait on him. That girl won’t do anything else about it, she is afraid she will lose her job. Once, I slapped someone who pinched me and I got fired.” “Send the manager over,” I requested. “I’ll tell him what I saw so that neither of you get into trouble.” The manager never came. In my mind, I could hear the voice of a woman at my field education site who spoke the week before as we served meals to guests at the homeless shelter where I work. “Watch out for those people out there,” she told the servers. “They’ll try to con you and they will pinch bottoms.” The man in the restaurant was a person she would never suspect; better dressed, more powerful, certainly not economically disadvantaged. As I remembered her prejudice, I got more upset about the injustice I had just witnessed. Maybe I could tell that man “no” on behalf of the people I minister to. Maybe I could tell that man “no” for the sake of the manager who doesn’t want to lose a customer and the waitress who doesn’t want to lose her job. As I sat thinking about the situation I didn’t know it was for me. I identified myself as the one person who didn’t have anything to lose by telling the truth. I put my napkin on the table and got up, walked over to the man and sat down in the seat across from him. He looked up from his lunch plate and said “Hi darling,” with a big, confident smile. His voice expectant and sure. “I saw what you did,” I said quietly. “You can’t do that. It wasn’t right what you did when you grabbed that waitress from behind. She didn’t like it and won’t …” I didn’t get a chance to say anything more. The man erupted. “What do you mean to tell me, I come

in here all the time, and I don’t have no right to …” He threw his napkin on the table and pushed his plate of eggs away from him. The plate lunged toward me. Before he got up, I did, and made my way back to my table and sat down. Shaking. He wasn’t done. Loud so everyone could hear, he said, “I’m never coming in here again, some creep tell me what I can do and what I can’t do.” He raved all the way to the door. The waitress and manager hovered in confusion. I couldn’t stop shaking. Another waitress sat a few tables away smoking a cigarette. She was on break. “He is a regular customer,” she explained. “Did he touch her in an inappropriate place?” she questioned. “It wasn’t right what he did,” I tried to explain. But her question wouldn’t leave me. He got so upset. Did I do the right thing? A few minutes later two policemen came in and sat at the table next to me. I went over and asked if we could talk. Kneeling at their table, I told them the story, and asked for their advice. “You should have let her handle it,” they explained. “She could have called us.” I went back to my table and knew I was finished with lunch. As I paid my bill the waitress who had served me said, “Thank you, thank you so much.” I wasn’t so sure. Outside the door, two women were waiting. “No matter what they say, you did the right thing,” one assured me. I got to my car and locked the doors. I couldn’t stop shaking. I drove for a couple of blocks and then parked, turned on the heater full blast and let the temperature comfort me. Then I started to cry, for all the times when I hadn’t been able to say no, hadn’t known that it wasn’t right, thought that I deserved it and the big boy owned me.

Brief Autobiography in Odors

q Windmill Farm q

by

Catherine Jagoe The smell of first enrapturement: stopped in your tracks, aged six, by a mock orange bush outside the school gates. You’ve never seen one before. It is larger than you, and in full bloom. You’re bewitched by the lemony sweetness of its frail, cream flowers, breathing them deep into the recesses of your body. Later that summer, the spicy, clove scent of wallflowers, dark crimson and velvety soft, on the back wall of your family’s home, 5 Warren Meade. Their fragrance thickens in the afternoon heat radiating from the brick, mixing with the hay, ammonia and horse-manure odors from the stables in the lane behind. The smell of bracken higher than your head in the New Forest, where shaggy wild ponies live, and you and your brother can make dens and move about unseen, like small animals, in the thickets of ferns. The way the brown spores are visible on the undersides of the fronds above you. All through your childhood, the smell of grass on your knees when you hug them to your face. You’re lucky: many of the smells that have marked you come from living things. Something you will never smell again: oxslips on a chalky hillside above a beach on the south coast of England in 1966. Even then, they were rare and precious. Now they are almost entirely gone. Not gone, however, are the wild bluebells that carpet the woods in Britain in May. Their transparent, haunting fragrance brings tears to your eyes when you come across it in Cornwall, hiking, after a long absence. A dog marks its personal topography with urine, to say, “I was here. I passed this way.” Invisible clues to a journey. At eight, your family moved north to a rambling house on the Welsh border, and you realized for the first time – by its absence – that home has a smell. Gradually, though imperceptibly, that unfamiliar house acquired your family’s hallmark scent, imbued by your mother’s cooking – her Victoria sponges; beef stew with baked potatoes; liver and onions for Saturday lunch; roast lamb on Sundays; shepherd’s pie with the leftovers for Monday’s supper. Long after, whenever you returned from family trips to find the house smelling empty and bereft, you’d bake a cake as soon as you arrived, to reclaim it. Ingredients of that household’s smell, the scent-wake of its inhabitants and their intertwined lives: pencils and pajamas in your brother’s room. The smell of books, strongest in the living room, which had two wall-to-ceiling bookshelves. A waft of Calèche or Chanel No. 5 – your mother going out. The cloying scent of lipsticks and cosmetics, jumbled together on her dressing table, filling your parents’ room and pervading the landing. The surprisingly sweet smell of your newborn sister’s poop, soft and yellow, inoffensive as mustard. The sour smell of your mother’s scalp as you brush her hair, slowly, to soothe the pain when she has a headache. The scent of Imperial Leather and Palmolive hand soap, and your father’s sandalwood shaving soap in its wooden bowl in the bathroom. Also, your mother’s floral talcum powder, Colgate toothpaste, and brassy TCP disinfectant. Your father’s outdoorsy, no-nonsense smell of wool and worn leather. The dark odor, strong and unmistakable, when the iron pressed the armpit seams of his button-down cotton shirts. Also the scents of chores: the acrid odor of the coal bucket that had to be filled, the dry smell of the ashes in the grate it was your job to clean every morning. The toxic chemical fumes

of Kiwi shoe polish and turpentine in the garage where your father brushed the whole family’s shoes at night and soaked his paintbrushes. The vile stink of the dead birds your dog Sasha would roll in, and how you had to hose her off and scrub her with harsh soap, worst in winter, when the water was so cold it made your hands ache, the dog flinching and dodging. The carbolic acid whiff of Milton disinfectant in buckets of soaking cotton diapers. The scent of sunlight and wind and Persil detergent in the family laundry unpegged from the line outside. Green Fairy Liquid dish soap frothing in the kitchen sink, and stacks of plates to be washed by hand. The smells of childhood illness: pink Germolene ointment that your mother rubbed into your chicken pox pustules as you burned with fever in the little spare room at night. The mild white smell of Savlon antiseptic cream and of the strips of sticking plaster she applied to your bleeding arms and knees when you were thrown over the handlebars of your bike. The jugs of hot lemon and honey she’d make when you had tonsillitis. The smells of your adolescence: Boots’ cucumber facial cleanser and tonic, which you used religiously twice a day, following advice from Jacky magazine. The unpleasant smell of another girl’s sweat and sickly deodorant emanated from your school blazer on hot days, making you hate the fact that you had to wear secondhand clothes. The iron and body-heat smell of blood on the sanitary pads you were learning, awkwardly, to wear, convinced they showed. How you recognized that same smell on your father, forty years later, when his hip incision burst open a week after surgery, and the pad over his wound came off. You’d always thought menstrual blood had a uniquely repugnant odor – it turns out you were wrong. It’s just the smell of blood kept close to the body from which it came. Later, the odor of addiction and abasement: the smell of vomit, bile, excrement and blue Harpic as you knelt at the white mouth of the bowl and put your fingers down your throat again. Revolted, ashamed, bending your back to the task. The smell of salvation, that made you sign on for life: the acrid, animal odor of semen. Wiped away with tissues, wadded up and hurled from the bed to the waste paper basket. A long-ago boyfriend who won a corner of your heart by confessing that he didn’t wash his hands after the two of you first made love because he didn’t want to lose the salt and vinegar smell of you. How that startled and softened you, how you still think of him with gratitude. Eau de Givenchy, the signature scent of your twenties, a citrusy white floral with a soupçon of mint and a musky base note, that lingered in the Indian silk scarves you bought from the outdoor market in Cambridge and wore everywhere. You never liked perfume that didn’t have a hint of something sharp and green. The smell of countries. The way you know you’re back in England when you enter the cramped ladies’ bathroom in Manchester Airport and are assaulted by the sickly orange cleaning product they use there. The smell of the Shropshire fields: unmistakably of Brussels sprouts. How the day before a transatlantic flight back to Chicago, you and your son walk in the Welsh hills to soak up as much as you can of the wild wind, gorse, nettles, hazel, rowan and sheep dung, as an antidote. The noxious odor of jet fuel unwillingly inhaled as you wait in line on the jet bridge,

drooping under the weight of your overstuffed carry-on, to be crammed into a giant sardine can for way longer than you can bear. How it always heralds nausea, vertigo, the full-body misery of migraine drilling into the base of your skull. The smells of Spain: filetes frying, fresh bread, fish markets. Mimosa and jasmine. Grassy olive oil. The rank, sickening pall of Ducados cigarettes and dog poop on city streets. The pungency of geranium leaves baking on patios. Resiny, redolent jara, sharp and sweet on the hills and mountainsides, along with wild thyme and espliego lavender and tiny saffron crocuses. The way in Spain they use Conejo bleach like water, and all the smells are raucous, everything dialed up, like the volume of conversations – violent pine toilet cleaner, loud laundry detergent. Every child’s head is sprinkled with Nenuco orangeblossom cologne, so their hair can be combed before going to school. Nivea hand cream. Ambre Solaire, back when you loved to sunbathe in the intense, dry heat – coconut and sweat. The smell of the cow-byre on the first floor that used to heat old-style village cottages in northern Spain decades ago. In the Basque country, the breath-catching cow-manure stink that radiated like a wall around the maid-of-all-work who spent her days toiling at your friends’ capacious home. How later in life, she saved enough to get rid of the cows and build herself a regular two-floor house with showers and central heating. The smells of Wisconsin: apples in a barn. The heavy smell of lake algae and moisture-laden air. The rich, starchy smell of a cornfield, the dry smell of fallen leaves. The metallic smell of snow. The sensory deprivation of the lack of smells of growing things, for months. What it is like when you start to smell the earth again in late March. The release of that, a let-down inside, like milk filling the breasts. Lily of the valley, lilacs, Dame’s Rocket, wafting a welcome to

May in your narrow Wisconsin back yard. The heady summer scent of basil in your sunny herb garden. The aroma of home now: onions sauteeing in olive oil the prelude to almost every dinner you make. It permeates your house, your clothes. The wholesome, vanilla scent of your husband’s skin. How you can tell when he’s stressed, or about to fall sick, because his breath smells different. The smell of your son, how it’s changed so much over time, from Johnson’s Baby Shampoo to mudand-fresh-air little-boyhood, to the frowsy bed-linen-and-stale-socks smell of early teenage years. The smell of his pee altered at puberty, became rank and musky. Nowadays, at almost-manhood, his bedroom smells dark and male, at once foreign and strangely, reassuringly familiar. The scent of a household is irreproducible, and seemingly immutable, yet it changes over time. Your parents’ house starts smelling more and more like your grandparents’ homes – musty, orderly and tranquil – after the four siblings leave and your parents become first elderly, and then old. At first you think the smell traveled with the furniture they inherited with their parents’ passing, but it seems that there really is an old-person smell. The Japanese even have a word for it: kareishu. Apparently it can be countered by extract of persimmon. Scents are ephemeral – a fleeting experience – but they imprint us. How deep their roots are. Decades after the things we smelled are gone, they can be re-conjured like the genie Aladdin could summon by rubbing his oil lamp. Odors leave their mark on us, the way autumn leaves sometimes do on sidewalks, when their dye leaches out, leaving the perfect, delicate outline of a ghost leaf. Scents penetrate to the core of us, stain the warp and weft of our brain fibers, permanent, ineradicable. They alter us, endure with us, tucked somewhere into our memories, our whole life long.

YUVAL NOAH HARARI

AROUND THE STATE Southeastern Counties on Top for Tariff Aid Payments Wisconsin farmers will receive an average of $39 per acre for this year’s crop under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s tariff-relief program. The newly announced Market Facilitation Program rates for nonspecialty crops such as corn and soybeans are based on county – a change from last year’s program, which provided payments based on total yields. Milwaukee County had the highest payment rate in Wisconsin, at $59 per acre, with Kenosha, Racine and Rock counties right behind at $58 per acre. Ashland, Bayfield and Iron counties had the lowest, at $15 per acre. Paul Mitchell, director of the Renk Agribusiness Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the rates are based on the average yield of crops in each county and how much prices have been affected by increased tariffs from China and other trading partners. “I was very surprised to see Milwaukee County at the top, and I’m not really sure why – which crop it was that had a high yield and a high price impact,” Mitchell said. He said northern counties tend to have lower crop yields, which likely influenced those rates. Scientists: Ag Practices Must Change Ensuring that well users in rural Wisconsin have clean drinking water will require changes in how farmers spray and store fertilizer. That was one of the messages from scientists who testified last week in Stevens Point before the Assembly’s Water Quality Task Force. It was one in a series of meetings of the bipartisan task force, which was convened in January in response to reports of contaminated wells across southwestern Wisconsin. One message from multiple people who testified was that protecting Wisconsin’s groundwater from contamination could require uncomfortable changes to farming practices. George Kraft, a UWStevens Point emeritus professor of water resources, said one problem is that the costs of pollution are externalized. “It’s people with wells. It’s the waterways that become high in nitrate. It’s the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. And that’s disconnected from where the nitrate pollution is being applied,” Kraft said. Milwaukee Creating Its Own Green New Deal Milwaukee is creating its own Green New Deal, but leaders said their version will have “more teeth” than the federal version. The joint city-and-county plan aims to reduce racial and income inequality by creating a new labor market of green jobs. During a July 25 press conference at the Milwaukee County

Courthouse, Milwaukee County Supervisor Supreme Moore Omokunde said one of the criticisms of the federal proposal is the structural details. “Local government is where things need to take place,” Omokunde said. “This is our attempt at looking at how jobs and economic equity and climate change can meet and be tackled at the same time.” The Milwaukee CityCounty Joint Taskforce on Climate and Economic Equity will lead the way in mapping out the city’s Green New Deal. The group will convene area leaders during the next six months to make recommendations to achieve net greenhousegas emission reductions of 45 percent of 2010 levels by 2030 and achieve net-zero greenhouse-gas emissions by 2050 or sooner. “We have about 11 years to dramatically change our whole economy – that is a massive undertaking,” said Robert Kraig, executive director of Citizen Action Wisconsin. “At a national level, we are taking no action whatsoever. In Wisconsin, half of the government will not act either, so local governments have stepped up to the plate.” Dems Reintroduce Bill to Lift Voting Restrictions on Felons Democratic lawmakers are renewing a push to allow felons to vote immediately after they are released from prison. Wisconsin Democrats have backed the idea for more than a decade, saying that state law that prevents those on probation or parole from voting disproportionately affects African Americans. A 2013 UW-Milwaukee study found Wisconsin had the nation’s highest incarceration rate for black men. Sen. Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee), one of the bill’s sponsors, said about 65,000 Wisconsin residents are temporarily barred from voting because of a past conviction. “These same people work, pay taxes, pay rent, own homes … They are impacted in the same manner and deserve the same voice,” Taylor said. “But in Wisconsin, those persons, those residents, are treated like the walking dead.” Taylor said law changes in other states signal a nationwide appetite for loosening voting restrictions on former felons. Last year, Florida, New York and Colorado moved to loosen restrictions. According to the National Council of State Legislatures, 14 states and the District of Columbia restore voting rights to felons immediately upon release.

Great Lakes Coalition Offers Issues Platform to Presidential Candidates by JIM LUNDSTROM jim@ppulse.com

G

reat Lakes advocates were closely watching the latest Democratic presidential debates to see whether any of the candidates picked up on the Great Lakes platform issued by Healing Our Waters Great Lakes Coalition and five Great Lakes governors (see sidebar). “They didn’t mention the Great Lakes specifically. There was some time, not very much, spent on water and infrastructure issues,” Laura Rubin, Laura Rubin director of Healing Our Waters Great Lakes Coalition, told the Peninsula Pulse the day after the first of the two debates. (The Pulse went to press before the second debate.) “So I would say some of the issues on our platform were touched on, but not as extensively or deeply as we were hoping for, and similarly, not really a depth of what some of the candidates would do to address the issues,” she said. “I know that much of the presidential conversations are focusing on health care and job creation, which are vital issues, but when we travel around the Great Lakes, we see a lot of families that don’t have access to clean drinking water, and for them, everything else is secondary. We feel that’s not acceptable.” The Great Lakes supply drinking water to more than 30 million people in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The coalition, headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, represents more than 160 advocacy groups throughout the Great Lakes states and two Canadian provinces. Recognizing that presidential leadership is essential, the platform asks presidential candidates to stand up for Great Lakes issues that include: • Supporting $475 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), which funds nutrient-reduction efforts, wetlands restoration and problem-area cleanup. This proposal is echoed by a bipartisan group of legislators, including Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Mike Gallagher, who introduced legislation last week to incrementally increase GLRI funding from the current $300 million annually to $475 million in the next five years. Studies indicate that every $1 invested

in Great Lakes restoration produces at least $2 of economic benefit – and some studies suggest the return on investment is closer to six to one in the form of increased property values, tourism and tax revenue. • Triple funding to fix drinking water and wastewater infrastructure. • Uphold and enforce clean-water protections. • Reduce harmful algal blooms across the region. • Prevent Asian carp and other invasive species from entering the Great Lakes. “The coalition has been doing this for the presidential campaigns, and it’s been very effective in raising the level of awareness on our issues in the Great Lakes,” Rubin said. “I think it also not only presents what our priorities are, but it really coalesces our coalition on these issues.” For the past two years, President Trump’s budget has eliminated GLRI funding, but both times the $300 million was restored because, Rubin said, of the bipartisan support for the effective GLRI projects – 4,700 of them since 2010.

“One of the reasons we’ve been effective in getting the GLRI funding, we don’t have divisiveness in the Great Lakes region,” Rubin said. “We’re very clear on what the needs are and can make a very compelling case about where those funds will go and what the needs and outcomes are. We want to continue this tradition. It’s a really unique issue with all that’s going on with politics. We do have Democrats and Republicans saying, ‘We care about the Great Lakes. We need to invest in them.’ We don’t have many issues like that.” Rubin said it helps tremendously to have five of the eight Great Lakes state governors offer their own Great Lakes platforms to the candidates, even though it was not a united front of all the governors (Democrat Andrew Cuomo of New York and Republicans Mike DeWine of Ohio and Eric Holcomb of Indiana were holdouts). “That was under [Michigan] Gov. Whitmer’s leadership,” Rubin said. “We were hoping we would get Republicans, but we were very happy to see the governors that did sign on to that.”

Governors Issue Their Own Great Lakes Agenda Five Great Lakes state governors – including Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers – have issued their own Great Lakes 2020 presidential agenda. Joining Evers are Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf. All five are Democrats. The governors point out that when the three other Great Lakes states are included (Indiana, Ohio and New York), they represent a $6 trillion regional economy that supports 51 million jobs. They also note that the shared waters supply drinking water to more than 48 million people. The agenda states: “Our economy, heritage and quality of life depend on the health of our Great Lakes. But right now, the Great Lakes and the people of our states are facing dangerous threats to our water and our public health.” The agenda also notes that “the Great Lakes region makes up 25 percent of the electoral college and includes multiple swing states critical to any candidate for president of the United States. The shared priorities of the Great Lakes region should be the shared priorities of all Americans.” With that in mind, they request that any candidate running for president

pledge support for the Great Lakes agenda, which includes these six points: • Help solve the water-infrastructure crisis in the region – $179 billion will be needed during the next 20 years for improvement, upgrades and repairs – by tripling the federal investment in the Clean and Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund. • Increase funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative from $300 million annually to $475 million. • Support, fully fund and expedite the plan to build new Asian carp prevention measures at the Brandon Road lock and dam in the Des Plaines River. • Commit to assisting states in meeting their goals of reducing nutrient pollution in the western Lake Erie basin by 40 percent by 2025. • Support federal funding for ports, harbors and critical infrastructure, including the Soo Locks reconstruction project at Sault Ste. Marie, pointing out that an unplanned closure of the aging Soo Locks could cripple Great Lakes shipping and the North American economy. • Push for increased action by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Defense to address PFAS chemical contamination.

Sevastopol School Project on Track

T

he footprint design is complete for the $25 million construction project that will replace the two oldest sections of Sevastopol School. “Everything’s on track right now,” said Sevastopol Superintendent Kyle Luedtke. “Now we’re working on flooring, furniture and ways different teachers want their rooms designed. Hopefully we’ll have all the plans finalized in November and start the bid process.” The plan is to break ground as soon as the weather allows in the spring. The 1924 section, which housed the elementary grades, and the 1946 section are being replaced with new spaces designed for today’s careerfocused, hands-on learning. In November, Sevastopol School District voters overwhelmingly

approved two referenda questions: the $25,100,000 campus-wide facilitiesimprovement program to replace the two aging school sections, and authorizing the district to exceed the revenue limit by $2 million per year for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years to pay for normal operational and maintenance expenses.

$50,000 Challenge Gift for Pebble Beach Announced

A

Door County couple has announced a challenge gift to spur donations to protect Pebble Beach in Sister Bay. Meredith and Fraser Hart will match every gift made to the Door County Land Trust’s Pebble Beach fund before Aug. 15, up to $50,000. The Harts said they spent many summer days at the shoreline and fondly recall so many family memories tied to Pebble Beach. They’re making this gift in honor of their grandchildren, Dirk and Raina van Duym, and hope that Pebble Beach can be enjoyed for generations to come. On July 25, the Door County Land Trust and the Village of Sister Bay announced a partnership to purchase and protect the 17-acre Pebble Beach property, which includes 600 feet of shoreline. The land trust must raise $500,000 by mid-September to close on the sale. More than 160 contributors have donated to help protect Pebble Beach so far, and many more have pledged their support online. The Hart family’s Door County roots go back more than 150 years. All of the Hart children and grandchildren, including daughter Anne, learned to swim at the beach. “Pebble Beach is the most important place on the planet to me,” she said. Meredith and Fraser Hart expressed their gratitude to the land trust and village for finding a way to protect a place that’s so special to their family. Meredith was a longtime Door County Land Trust volunteer and finds peace in Door County’s natural areas. To make a contribution to the effort to protect Pebble Beach, visit DoorCountyLandTrust.org/PebbleBeach or call the Door County Land Trust office at 920.746.1359.

BULLETIN WHAT HAPPENED

• Gov. Tony Evers has announced additional efforts to address nitrates in ground and surface water by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). “I am committed to protecting Wisconsin’s waters and ensuring every Wisconsinite has access to clean drinking water,” Evers said. “In the Year of Clean Drinking Water, I’m proud that my cabinet is working with the agricultural and environmental communities to address nitrate contamination.” As part of the announcement, Evers directed the DNR to pursue

COMING UP • The Sturgeon Bay School District will hold all school registrations at the TJ Walker Middle School Gym on Aug. 8 and Aug. 13, 12-7 pm.

This program is free, but donations are appreciated. The Heritage Village will be open for self-guided tours beginning at 10 am and after the presentation until 3 pm. Adult admission is $6.50; a donation for youth is appreciated. For more information, contact Door County Historical Society at 920.421.2332 or email doorcountyhistory@gmail.com.

Senator Tammy Baldwin Sen. Baldwin successfully secured authorization for an additional Coast Guard icebreaker for the Great Lakes in the fiscal year 2020 Coast Guard Reauthorization legislation that passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee July 31 with strong bipartisan support. The legislation will now head to the full Senate for a vote. “In the Great Lakes, inadequate icebreaking capacity is costing us thousands of American jobs and millions in U.S. revenue,” Baldwin said. “We need to take action with an additional Coast Guard icebreaker to protect our Great Lakes and keep our Made in Wisconsin economy moving forward, and I’m proud to see my colleagues on both sides of the aisle joined me in that effort today.” Vessel delays caused by the 2018-19 ice season resulted in the loss of 5,421 jobs that depend on the U.S. fleet’s ability to deliver cargo throughout the Great Lakes region. Businesses that depend on the region’s maritime industry lost more than $1 billion in revenues because of delays caused by inadequate icebreaking. Due to the lost business revenue, the federal government lost more than $125 million in taxes, in addition to the $46 million lost by state and local governments.

President Donald Trump President Trump is racist, American voters said 51 to 45 percent in a Quinnipiac University national poll released Tuesday. The survey of 1,306 voters took place July 25-28. White voters were divided – the independent national poll found that 46 percent said he is racist, and 50 percent said he is not – while 80 percent of black voters believed he is racist, and 55 percent of Hispanic voters believed that to be true. Slightly more women (59 percent) found the president racist than men (55 percent). Sixty percent of survey respondents said Congress should not begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. Support for starting impeachment proceedings was 61 percent among Democrats and 66 percent among black voters, but every other listed party, gender, education, age and racial group was opposed. Still, 52 percent believed Trump attempted to “derail or obstruct” the investigation into the 2016 election. “While half of voters think President Donald Trump is racist, religion shows an even bigger divide,” said Mary Snow, polling analyst for the Quinnipiac University poll. “Only 21 percent of white Evangelicals believe the president is racist. Compare that to 63 percent of voters who don’t affiliate with any organized religion.” Source: poll.qu.edu

• The final month for the free summer History Hour programs put on by the Egg Harbor Historical Society will kick off on Monday, Aug. 5, at 3 pm at the Kress Pavilion with a program on the personal family life of Egg Harbor’s Doctor H.F. Eames. The program will focus on Eames’ early personal life and raising his family at his beloved “LaVista” overlooking the village and harbor. On Aug. 12, the EHHS will cover the many contributions of Eames, many so important to the early development of Egg Harbor and all of Door County.

Governor Tony Evers Gov. Evers on Monday signed Executive Order 36, which directs state agencies to act to prevent lead poisoning. In response, state health officials are marshaling resources and partnerships statewide to target child leadpoisoning prevention, Department of Health Services (DHS) Secretarydesignee Andrea Palm announced. “This issue is affecting too many of our children,” Palm said, “and we need to act now to make a difference today, and for future generations. We are urging providers and parents to make sure to test children for lead exposure.” Executive Order 36 directs DHS to designate a person in the agency to coordinate the state’s efforts to address lead-poisoning prevention, treatment, removal, abatement and surveillance. Palm said the agency is in the process of finding a qualified candidate for that position. According to Wisconsin bloodlead testing data, 4,110 Wisconsin children younger than 16 tested positive for lead poisoning in 2018. Children exposed to even moderate lead levels can face delays in growth, as well as serious behavior and learning challenges. The main cause of lead poisoning among children in our state is swallowing the dust from lead paint, which is found most often in homes built before 1978. It is estimated that there are more than 350,000 older homes in Wisconsin with lead-paint hazards. Exposure to lead-contaminated drinking water from lead service lines or lead in fixtures can also contribute to lead poisoning. The only way to know whether a child has been exposed to lead is to get a blood test for lead. Only one in five Wisconsin children younger than six is tested each year. Source: dhs.wisconsin.gov

Evers also directed DATCP to work closely with the DNR to continue developing the technical standards needed to meet NR 151. “Many of our farmers are already helping to lead the way on cleanwater practices in their communities,” said DATCP Secretary-designee Brad Pfaff. “We look forward to connecting the dots with the agricultural community and our partners at the Department of Natural Resources to ensure [that] our farmers have up-to-date standards and tools to help protect our water systems from nitrate contamination.”

ibraltar Town Chair Dick Skare expects construction at the Fish Creek Beach to be completed by the end of next week. The work was originally slated for completion before July 4, but, Skare said, plan changes required by the county and delays in the installation of a grinder pump slowed the project. In June, contractors installed a Vortechs stormwater-treatment unit to treat stormwater before it flows into the beach. The beach has had to close occasionally because of contamination, but Vortechs systems have been successful in minimizing closings at other area beaches. A $150,000 grant from the Palmer Foundation and the Fund for Lake Michigan helped to pay for the unit.

Benner’s background in molecular biology figures into her work, which has a sense of structure and organization that lends clarity to her complex dyed and painted textiles. Wheeler – a plein air painter who lives on a farm in southwest Wisconsin – paints reflections of her life in the state’s Driftless Region in a way that only someone who has lived and worked the land can. Women and birds have been part of Goggio’s work for more than 25 years, and now bees, dragonflies and butterflies are becoming more prominent because of her increased concern for our environment. Fine Line Designs Gallery, 10376 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim, will display Exhibit III through Sept. 13.

f you had to pick a single musical act that epitomized the zeitgeist of the 1970s, how many would name England Dan & John Ford Coley? C’mon, let’s see those hands. Of course, if not at the top of the list, they would be right up there (top 10, at least) because of their harmonious, soft-rock balladry on “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight,” “Nights Are Forever without You,” “Love Is the Answer,” “It’s Sad to Belong” and “We’ll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again.” All those songs scream 1970s. And John Ford Coley doesn’t mind that he and his late partner, England Dan Seals, will forever be associated with the ’70s. “There was a newness in it, some phenomenal artists. The songs and melodies were memorable, for lack of a better word,” he said. “We weren’t trying to be stars. We were just trying to pay our bills and continue to go out and play music.” Coley will make his first visit to Door County on Sunday, Aug. 4, 7 pm, when he plays Fishstock (fishstockmusic.com) in Fish Creek. He promises a night of eclectic music with some insight and stories thrown in. “I just released a CD a year or so ago, and it’s called Eclectic,” Coley said. “I had all these songs from all these years. It’s 26 new songs you’ve never heard before. The second side is pretty much acoustic and ballads. But the first side has everything but Lithuanian disco polkas and rap. It’s country, it’s folk, it’s rock, there’s a kind of jazz thing. Whatever I happened to feel that day.” Coley is a classically trained pianist. He and Dan Seals first hooked up in teenage bands in their native Dallas. One of those bands – Southwest F.O.B. – had a national hit with a cover of a song called “Smell of Incense.” “That was on the Hip label, the white subsidiary of Stax records,” Coley said. “They had two groups on the label, Southwest F.O.B. and Nobody Else. Later Nobody Else changed their name to Black Oak Arkansas.” Coley is full of these insider stories about the music scene of the late 1960s and beyond. “Dan and I, ironically enough, didn’t get along when we first got together,” Coley said. “He wanted another guitar player in the band, and everyone else wanted a keyboard player.” But they soon learned that their voices sounded good together. “Dan had such a great voice, and I sang harmony on everything.

was my forte, and he had his forte. We had this natural blend, and we just continued to develop that,” Coley said. “Dan and I kind of split off from the group. We were kind of opening for the band anyway. We’d go out and sing a couple of our songs, acoustic guitars.” After playing the Dallas scene, the duo decided to move to Los Angeles, where Wrecking Crew guitarist Louis Shelton heard a tape and gave it to Herb Alpert at A&M Records. “He said, ‘These guys are a cross between the old Bee Gees and Simon and Garfunkel,’” Coley said. “Herb said, ‘We don’t really have room for that.’ The story goes, Herb was shaving and listening to the tape. He stopped the tape, wiped the shaving cream off his face without finishing, called Louis and said, ‘Get them out here.’” Seals and Coley made two records for A&M before being dropped by the label. It would be another four years – when they were signed by Big Tree Records in 1976 – before they had their breakthrough album, Nights Are Forever, which went gold and had two hits. Their sudden success prompted A&M to release a “new” recording of the duo from archival material. By 1979, when they released the album Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive, Coley

and Seals realized they had hit a brick wall: that the industry had put a “chokehold on your neck” and was not willing to hear the eclectic side of England Dan & John Ford Coley. The industry wanted more easy-listening ballads. “As a matter of fact, when we did the Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive record, we really branched out. I’d written a lot of the songs, and I don’t stay in one vein. This was quite a departure Dan and I were doing,” Coley said. “I thought, ‘OK, we’re screwed.’ You recognize the fact that you’re relegated to a certain sound. If you branch out, you may get lucky, or you may not. We didn’t get lucky. It’s difficult to deal with.” They parted ways, and Seals started a new and successful career in country music. “Dan always had leaned toward the country side of things,” Coley said. “That’s how he was raised. He was really good at that. We said, enough is enough is enough, and called it. There were other extenuating circumstances. Dan went off to country and had a lucrative and successful career in the country market.” Seals died in 2009 at age 61.

BOTH MEMORABLE: DOOR SHAKESPEARE’S ANNUAL GALA AND GHOST THE MUSICAL

(1) Peninsula State Park welcomes Summit

(2) Ghost The Musical – a timeless musical fantasy about the power of love based on the Academy Award-winning film by Bruce Joel Rubin – opened July 31 at Peninsula Players Theatre (peninsulaplayers.com) as a retooled, smaller-cast version of the 2012 Tony Awardnominated Broadway musical. In the musical, Sam and Molly are a young couple whose relationship takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, he refuses to leave her when he learns she’s in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic, Oda Mae, who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death. “Fans of the movie can be assured the scene at the potter’s wheel is in the musical,” said Greg Vinkler, Peninsula Players’ artistic director. “The music is lovely; the romance is touching; and the laughs are very big. The creative team is working together to make a memorable theatrical experience. The use of theater magic, such as well-timed movement to light and sound effects, will combine with the musical score and guide the audiences’ imagination on this supernatural romance.” Ghost The Musical is performed Tuesdays through Saturdays, 8 pm; and Sundays, 7:30 pm (except for Aug. 18 at 4 pm). Tickets range from $43 to $49.

Couple Appreciates DCVB’s Attention to Detail My wife and myself called the DCVB to obtain 2019 visitors guides after discovering our info was outdated. The level of professional, accommodating attention to our particular circumstances was amazing. Not only did the info specialist answer all questions politely and completely, but also sent an unexpected package to our home in Racine, Wis. In this

EMILY DICKINSON

package was every possible bit of info we may need during our upcoming vacation to Door County. Enclosed was a personal letter from the specialist welcoming us to your community. How lucky for Door County to have a representative who performs their job to such a high level. We look forward to our visit and we sincerely hope that those good people at the DCVB get credit for an outstanding performance. Special thanks to Jordan Spencer, CTA, the specialist, for a job well done.

My Voting Priorities Democratic candidates have taken a page out of Trumps playbook and that is to make yourself look good by tearing others down. Candidates Booker and Harris have criticized Biden on some issues because he is the front runner. I will vote for the candidate that tells us what they are for and following are my priorities.

Don and Barbie Cesar Racine, Wisconsin How Ironic Isn’t it more than a little ironic that Republicans are attacking the progressive Democrats as “damned Socialists” when they themselves are either willing or unwitting agents of Russia. I say this in part because of Mitch McConnell and his cronies, who continue to block any legislation that would begin to address the cyber attacks on our elections. Furthermore, those who label as a Socialist anyone who demands a living wage for all of us, fair treatment in the criminal “justice” system and equal pay for equal work regardless of race, gender etc. seem to be missing the point. Who’re the real unAmericans, hmmm? Lastly, the First Amendment still enshrines the right of all Americans “to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Those who protest the government’s inhumane and unlawful treatment of refugees, who demand that the president and his administration be held accountable, to name just two of many grievances, are simply exercising that right. Kate Houston Ephraim, Wisconsin

1. Affordable Health Care for all including affordable drugs. 2. Using fair tax structures and employment initiatives to rebuild a middle class where a single wage earner in a family has an income sufficient to allow one parent to if they choose to stay home and tend to the children. Many of our social problems stem from a lack of parental guidance. 3. A real effort to stop the erosion of the environment which is our most serious problem. Scientists say that we have just a few years before the situation is irreversible. 4. A bipartisan effort to correct our unfair voting regulations such as gerrymandering brought about by having the party in power draw the voting district boundaries and to get rid of the antiquated electoral college. 5. To pass strict gun control legislation. The argument that guns don’t kill; people do is a cop-out. Look to countries like Australia and recently New Zealand which have been successful and if the misinterpreted second amendment continues to be an excuse throw it out. No one except the military needs an AK-47. 6. Making post high school education affordable and promoting technical and skilled trades education. George Krall La Crosse, Wisconsin

Regarding Joint Finance Committee’s Political Delay I am in receipt of a letter from Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald regarding my statements about the Joint Finance Committee’s inaction in providing the resources to help rural Wisconsin. This is not a partisan issue – this is an emotional issue. I’m the head of the agency that regularly receives phone calls from farmers struggling to navigate the toughest economic conditions in recent memory. I’ve logged a lot of miles since taking this position to meet with farmers in rural Wisconsin, and time and time again they tell me that times are tough. We have an opportunity for bipartisan support in making investments in mental health assistance throughout the state. The governor proposed – and the legislature agreed – that these resources should be made available. For some reason, the legislature delayed release by putting these funds into a supplemental fund for the Joint Finance Committee to distribute at some later date. DATCP provided the Joint Finance Committee with its plan, and for some reason they delayed again. We continue to look for ways to work together on this issue, but I hope that the legislature can share my sense of urgency on this issue. The need is now. Brad Pfaff, Secretary-Designee Wisconsin Department of Agricultural, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) Laying a Claim to Water Rights in Ephraim In Ephraim, a conflict is brewing over a classic case of public versus private rights. On one side is the Yacht Harbor, a for-profit business offering moorage for boats throughout the summer. This spring, the Harbor applied to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to move its existing pier toward the edge of its property to accommodate more yachts and generate more profits. In opposition are many of us affiliated with the neighboring non-profit EYC sailing program. In a contentious DNR hearing last month, arguments were made that the new pier would reduce access to the water on the protected side of the EYC’s breakwater. That’s where the century old program offers sailing and powerboating instruction to more than a hundred students annually. EYC operates sailing races most days and hosts Gibraltar High School’s sailing team every fall (I myself competed on this team). Anyone can join and scholarships are available to local residents for lessons. There are no profits, and the only wages are paid to instructors. Sailors need adequate space to launch boats and operate safety vessels in the already crowded adjoining waterway. As an instructor in the program, I worry that adding congestion would greatly increase the risk of injury to our young sailors. Hence the conflict: Public benefits of waterways versus private rights of land owners. That’s where it gets interesting. Wisconsin law acknowledges some rights of waterfront land owners, but also protects the public’s right to water quality, navigation, and recreational activities. When public and private rights to waterways are in conflict, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court has ruled that the public rights are primary and the owner rights are secondary. There is simply no greater public interest than ensuring the safety of our youngest sailors. Last week, the DNR followed precedent with a ruling that guards the public’s rights by permitting only modest movement of the pier. Doing so protects our young sailors and ensures that the water is accessible to everyone. Anabel Roza Ephraim, Wisconsin
