In 2008, NWE hired Osmose Utilities Services, Inc. to inspect its electric poles in the Burnett and Polk counties, as well as in the villages of Webster, Siren, Grantsburg, Frederic, Milltown and Balsam Lake.

Scooting across that warm, welcoming tile in the kitchen, the youngest Taylor is rolling a hardy Tonka dump truck from site to site, making light spitting noises, just like the big diesel versions probably would make. The dark-haired toddler smiles wide as the bright yellow truck bounces smartly off the new cabinets back at him; it seems to be passing his test. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people ask why I build homes IRU+)+ LW¡VEHFDXVHRINLGVOLNH-DNRE and the scores of Habitat for Humanity kids we help,â&#x20AC;? stated Wild Rivers HFH Director Eric Kube on Saturday, Dec. 21. ´ KLVSDUHQWV 7RPDQG-XOLDDUHVWULYLQJ WRPDNHDEHWWHUIXWXUHIRU-DNREÂľ -DNRE LV SOD\LQJ RQ WKH Ă RRU RI WKDW fresh new kitchen below highlights of brilliant kiwi green paint that evokes the tapestry of architectural color so familiar to travelers in South America - which is exactly what it is meant to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are colors like that everywhere in Peru,â&#x20AC;? new owner Tom Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ZDQWHG LW WR UHPLQG -XOLD RI KHU KRPHland.â&#x20AC;? The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeâ&#x20AC;? was spoken quite a bit on Saturday, and not just in Luck. The Habitat team added to their impressive list of new homes this past weekend with two dedications in Polk County: starting with the Taylor home at 700 East Park Ave., in Luck and at the Tony and Amy LeTourneau home in Amery later that same day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a busy day for us!â&#x20AC;?

Tom said. The Taylor home was originally going to be a rehabilitation of a tired, dilapidated home that had succumbed to the elements in recent years. But as the HFH crew dug into it last year, they realized it was too far gone to save and decided to raze it and start afresh, instead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all decided it would be better as a new home instead,â&#x20AC;? lead builder Bob Babel said, noting the scores of volunteers who brought it to life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many people helped, literally from all over the U.S.: New York, Pennsylvania, Alabama and other East Coast states (from the AmeriCorps program) as well as local church groups, volunteers and service groups who came to lend a hand and just kept going, going and going.â&#x20AC;? Babel joked about working with the jokester Taylor and even wrote a short poem, based on Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forever Young,â&#x20AC;? praising the family and volunteers, while also joking about the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penchant for Peruvian delicacies, that includes guinea pig and other items. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even ask what else I was eating!â&#x20AC;?

Teachers and technology at Frederic schools

New educational tools for tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges

Gregg Westigard | Staff writer )5('(5,& ² -RVK 5RELQVRQ VD\V WKH Frederic school system has awesome teaching and learning happening each day. But that learning is helped by some big investments in technology in recent years. Robinson, the district administrator, gave a presentation on Frederic technology advances at the school board meeting Monday, Dec. 16. A walk through the Frederic classrooms shows students taking notes and doing research with iPads. A teacher conducts a class in three different school districts with students in each classroom able to see, hear and talk to the other students. All the action is live on large screens. Students can see an experiment, or even a medical operation, taking place in real time in a distant location and can talk with the teacher. There are about 500 students in the entire 4K-12 Frederic system, but those students have access to educational opportunities far beyond the walls of the two school buildings. This is some of what the Frederic School District has done since spring 2012. It has added 100 Chromebooks, 60 in the 6 -12 building, 40 in the elementary, with two in each classroom and six in the library. It has added two Polycom carts for videoconferencing and learning events. The district rebuilt 110 desktop computers, placed a laptop in every teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands, UHSODFHG DOO PRQLWRUV ZLWK Ă DW VFUHHQV

Robinson said Frederic is expanding its social media tools to communicate and market the great things the district is doing. More is on the horizon, including interior and exterior digital signage. There will be more online textbooks and re-

sources. The district is looking at new ways to take learning beyond the school walls, looking at systems named PowerVFKRRO ,QĂ&#x20AC;QLWH &DPSXV DQG 6N\ZDUG There will be new student assessment programs and training in new methods

Burnett County supervisors recap Frederic Cub Scouts decorate â&#x20AC;&#x153;treesâ&#x20AC;? help available to residents

Jean Koelz | Staff writer BURNETT COUNTY - The regular December board of supervisors meeting in Burnett County on Thursday, Dec. 19, had a celebratory tone, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because of the holiday potluck buffet that preceded it. Many of the supervisors were able to share information about the success of programs WKDWEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WDUHDUHVLGHQWVDVZHOODVRXWline some new opportunities. Richard Anderson detailed the efforts of the Northwest Wisconsin Regional Economic Development Fund, which administers low-interest, revolving loans to area businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are currently $7.2 million in loans under our management,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We average about one new loan per month.â&#x20AC;? According to the NWREDF website, the organization provides low-cost financing for businesses seeking to either start or expand their operations in Northwest Wisconsin. Financing is available for high technology businesses, manufacturing, timber, secondary wood products, façade improvements, service businesses and the tourism industry. Originally, the funds were supplied by HUD grants, and every municipality and county was able to write these loans on a local level. ´$ERXWĂ&#x20AC;YHRUVL[\HDUVDJRÂľ$QGHUVRQ explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the program was consolidated LQWRUHJLRQVÂľ1HZORDQVDUHĂ&#x20AC;QDQFHGE\ the repayment of older loans. More information is available through the Northwest Regional Planning Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at nwrpc.com. Supervisor Larry Main outlined another program available through NWRPC that offers zero-interest loans for housing rehabilitation and assistance with home buying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $2 million available,â&#x20AC;? Main said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and Burnett Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share is $200,000.â&#x20AC;? The average loan is about $20,000 and repayment is deferred until the house sells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;use-it-or-lose-itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; program,â&#x20AC;?

If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the positive reports, then perhaps the mood of the meeting could be attributed to the upcoming holiday break. Or perhaps it was Chairman Donald Taylor expressing his elation at the hiring of Nathan Ehalt, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new administrator, whose presence means that Taylor is not as busy having to cover the vacancy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am happy, happy, happy!â&#x20AC;? Taylor exclaimed. More likely, though, the festive tone could be attributed to the costumed visitor from Forts Folle Avoine who kicked off the meeting. Clerk Steve Wierschem presented an entertaining and educational history of the fur trade, explained the sigQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQFH RI WZR FRPSHWLQJ IXU WUDGLQJ companies in the same area, and walked through the rediscovery and reconstruction of the historic fort located in Danbury. The Fort has been open to the public since 1989, and now it hosts the largest rendezvous event in Northwest Wisconsin, among other well-attended special events and tours. The purpose of Wierschemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit was to illustrate the importance of the Forts to local tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our goal,â&#x20AC;? Wierschem said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to bring people here.â&#x20AC;? On behalf of the Burnett County Historical Society that funds and operates the Forts, Wierschem requested that the supervisors be supportive in whatever way they can. More information about Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park is available at theforts.org.

More than 1.8 million people will travel over holidays in Wisconsin Breann Schossow|WPR STATEWIDE - In Wisconsin, more than 1.8 million people are expected to travel this holiday season. AAA spokeswoman Pam Moen said the number of holiday travelers in Wisconsin this year is up a little less than 1 percent from 2012. The same is true nationally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both those numbers are modest increases compared to last year, and again, the most number of people that we have seen travel for this holiday in the history of the time that AAA has been keeping record,â&#x20AC;? said Moen.

A vast majority of Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s travelers will use cars, almost 1.7 million. Moen said Wisconsin is enjoying the lowest gas prices that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen in about three years, with an average last week of $3.09. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, the improved gas prices (and) the slow but steady progress in economic recovery news are factors that are FRQWLQXLQJ WR LQĂ XHQFH HYHQ PRUH SHRple to make positive decisions related to travel,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Festivusâ&#x20AC;? celebration at Capitol largely features grievances against GOP Shawn Johnson | WPR MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; About a hundred people gathered to celebrate the alternative holiday â&#x20AC;&#x153;Festivusâ&#x20AC;? at the state Capitol on Tuesday, Dec. 23. For those unfamiliar with the rules of Festivus, as laid down by the TV sitcom â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seinfeld,â&#x20AC;? the â&#x20AC;&#x153;airing of grievancesâ&#x20AC;? is key. Everyone gathers around an aluminum pole and complains about whatever they want. At this ceremony, people largely aired grievances about Republicans: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grievance is my governor and the damage he is doing to my state,â&#x20AC;? said one participant. There were plenty of direct grievances like that one, with most â&#x20AC;&#x153;airing grievancesâ&#x20AC;? against Gov. Scott Walker. Some took aim at Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy decisions. For example: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drove about an hour to get here; my grievance is that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a

Some attacked the crackdown on protesters that took place in the rotunda earlier this year: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grievance is with everybody that is causing our Solidarity Singers to keep going back to court day after day after day.â&#x20AC;? This event and the Festivus display were granted permits by the state of Wisconsin, as were several other Christian and atheist displays in the rotunda. Though Walker was mostly a target at this event, he said earlier this month that the array of holiday GLVSOD\VUHĂ HFWVWKHGLYHUVLW\RIWKHVWDWH Republicans have also used the Festivus holiday. Earlier on Tuesday, Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, aired his own grievances against everything from the recently passed budget deal to the Federal Reserve.

resolution was most often moved quickly through committee and rubber-stamped by a county board with no public input from county residents. These boards did not represent the diverse opinion of their communities nor did they search out factual information to drive their vote. These county resolutions are now used as propaganda by our very own DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. So what does climate have to do with 350? 350 ppm of CO2 in our atmosphere is referred to by some as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tipping point,â&#x20AC;? or upper limit, where there is no reversal or recovery. Do we want wolves at the tipping point? What is life like for humans or animals living on the verge of life support?

State Capitol Report: Lawmaker vows to end use of dogs in stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wolf hunt

Environmental groups claim temporary victory in two dairy farm cases Chuck Quirmbach |WPR STATEWIDE - Two recent legal rulings take on the battle between large Wisconsin dairy farms and environmental groups over water quality and quantity. Both cases involve dairy farm projects in central Wisconsin. In one, a state appeals court has ruled the Department of Natural Resources did not adequately assess the cumulative environmental impacts of plans by a concentrated animal feeding operation to pump 52 million gallons of water a year from high-capacity wells. In the other legal case, an administrative law judge has ruled the DNR does have the authority to require high-capacity well owners to monitor groundwater levels. Attorney Elizabeth Wheeler of Clean Wisconsin is working on the second case and supports the DNR effort to require monitoring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dairy conducted some groundwater modeling to see what the impact on nearby surface waters were,â&#x20AC;? says Wheeler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the DNR wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if that modeling was correct. So they required some monitoring of the surface water im-

Wheeler says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also keeping an eye on a bill in the Legislature that would make it easier for high-capacity wells to go in and harder for the DNR to toughen existing well permits.

The storm made a mess out of driving conditions in Milwaukee County, with almost 120 crashes and disabled vehicles. A Milwaukee County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy was slightly injured. So far, there are no known deaths or serious injuries in Wisconsin from the storm, and only about 30 homes and businesses lost electricity or heat throughout the state at any point.

Bill Martens | Wisconsin Public Radio MADISON - A Democratic state lawmaker who is opposed to the use of dogs in Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wolf hunt said he will not stop trying to end the practice. State Sen. Fred Risser, D-Madison, introduced a bill in March that would outlaw the use of dogs. However, the proposal has gone nowhere.

State Sen. Neal Kedzie, R-Elkhorn, who chairs the Natural Resources and Environment Committee, has declined Risserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requests that a public hearing on the legislation be scheduled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid that the committee chairman is opposed to it and will not hold a hearing,â&#x20AC;? said Risser, on last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;State Capitol Reportâ&#x20AC;? segment. Risser added that he hopes 2014 will be more productive than this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll introduce (the bill) again next year, and maybe next year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be more successful,â&#x20AC;?

2013 wolf season ends with closure of Zone 3 MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 wolf hunting and trapping season came to an end Monday, Dec. 23, at 5 p.m., when the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources closed the last remaining zone open to wolf harvest. Wolf Harvest Zone 3 is the sixth and last wolf harvest zone to be closed this season. All wolf harvest zones are now closed.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wolf harvest trend in Zone 3 has increased this weekend with Zone 3 being the only remaining zone open in the state. After a slow beginning to the season in Zone 3, hunting and trailing conditions were favorable to higher hunter success. Therefore, with 12 wolves harvested in the last two days, we felt it was important to close the season at this point given the renewed pace of harvest and hunter suc-

cess,â&#x20AC;? said Kurt Thiede, DNR Land Division administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a successful second season, and the harvest was well distributed across the state. We are closing the wolf season now to reduce the risk of exceeding our quota,â&#x20AC;? said Thiede.
