%DFNJURXQG The incidents and events that led to Loweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death have many confus ing details, much of which %HQMDPLQ%LURQ is in dispute, but the criminal complaint lays out many of the critical facts. According to a criminal FRPSODLQW Ă&#x20AC;OHG LQ 3RON &RXQW\ Court, the incident began on the HYHQLQJRI-XO\DQGFDPHWRD KHDGLQWKHHDUO\PRUQLQJKRXUV of July 27, after the duo of Biron and Mazurek visited several WDYHUQVLQHDVWHUQ3RON&RXQW\ eventually ending up at the 6WDSOHV /DNH %DU DW  3RON Barron St., near the two county lines. Apparently, the altercations began shortly before bar closing time, and escalated from com ments someone made on a pool shot. It led to a confrontation between the two men and other patrons at the bar. In their statements to police, both men claimed they were on their way out when an uniden WLĂ&#x20AC;HG ZRPDQ FRQIURQWHG WKHP with someone pushing someone down to the ground, eventually drawing others to the confronta tion.

Melowski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were trying to get out of the parking lot as quick as possible.â&#x20AC;? 7KHEUDZODQGZKDWIROORZHG In the investigation narratives, several of the witnesses claimed that during the conflict, both men had been involved in as saulting several people, includ

One man involved in the dis pute later had to be taken to the hospital to be treated for a frac tured jaw, and both Mazurek and Biron had multiple cuts and bruises on their faces. It was unclear who tried to break up the initial disagree ment, but several witnesses noted that the duo was told to stop and also to leave the bar, with the situation escalating into a brawl that quickly involved several people in the parking lot, including Lowe, who reportedly was knocked to the ground as Mazurek tried to close the pas senger door as Biron backed up, ZKLFKPD\H[SODLQKRZVKHEH came trapped under the vehicle and was run over. While there were various statements on how Lowe be came trapped under the vehicle, and also disputed statements on whether Biron â&#x20AC;&#x153;rockedâ&#x20AC;? the car several times to get over the trapped women, she was appar ently run over by the passenger VLGH WLUH V  ,Q D VWDWHPHQW WR police, both Biron and Mazurek stated they did not think they ran anyone over as they sped away.

Communications project: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take a deep breath and trust the expertsâ&#x20AC;? by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTYâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;When county board Supervisor Jeremy Gronski ac cepted the chair position of the commu nications and dispatch ad hoc committee, he was understandably apprehensive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Asking the new kid on the block to oversee such a large project poses a lot of risk,â&#x20AC;? Gronski reminded committee mem bers at the Tuesday, Aug. 13, meeting, as he asked for candid feedback on his lead ership. +RZHYHULQWKHVHYHUDO\HDUKLVWRU\RI whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a $4 million to $5 million project to upgrade the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emer gency communications system, make the federally mandated switch to narrow band and remodel the dilapidated dis patch center, criticism of every aspect of the project was widespread long before Gronski was ever involved.

)HDUHOHPHQW|XQQHFHVVDU\} The purpose of this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ad hoc meeting was to reassure everyone that the sky is not really falling. County Adminis trator Candace Fitzgerald, who has been Therkelsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of contact, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fear element thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being injected into these conversations is really unnecessary. Things are really rolling and moving; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be any problem with Racom meeting their deadlines.â&#x20AC;? And even if the unforeseeable does happen, Fitzgerald reminded everyone that the worst case scenario is that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the current system will remain in place and function ing until weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to make the switch.â&#x20AC;? Gronski urged the committee to trust WKHH[SHUWVWRGRWKHLUMRE â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest issue we have is our sense of insecurity,â&#x20AC;? Gronski said.

With that, the ad hoc committee pored over a compilation of questions that were previously submitted to Fitzger ald. Much of the information was there all along, buried in lengthy documents from vendors. Other questions had more to do with providing updates for things outside the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control, such as the status of an environmental study await ing a Menominee tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature before a green light can be given for Grantsburg tower construction. Other questions had to do with contin

gency plans for towers in question, such as how to proceed with the new Webb Lake tower owner, ATC, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel obligated to honor the agreements made by prior owner, AT&T, in order to obtain the conditional use permit.

<HDUHQGGHDGOLQHV The biggest issue facing the committee is whether to push for the dispatch center UHPRGHOWRFRLQFLGHZLWK\HDUHQGGHDG lines, or just install new communications equipment and complete the remodel in 2014.

What we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is whether or not itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doable.â&#x20AC;?

Byrne lives in Siren Village and said that the number of bears in the village is causing residents to curtail their out door activities and not let their dogs out because they are afraid of the bears. He

also noted that seeing a mother bear with WKUHHIRXURUĂ&#x20AC;YHFXEVDWDWLPHLVQRWXQ common this year, whereas in the past, a mother with one or two cubs pass seemed more the norm.

SCF Council approves TIF help for sewer rates

Mayor Brian Blesi said, who also suggested the TIF may be able to retire early. 7KHFLW\¡VWD[LQFUHPHQWDOGLVWULFWFXU rently has $1.745 million, and the city can only apply new projects toward that fund XQWLOQH[W0DUFKZKHQRQO\FXUUHQWSURM ects may use the funds. 7KHUH ZDV VRPH FRQFHUQ WKDW WKH H[ penditure may limit any future projects, VXFKDV&LYLF$XGLWRULXPH[SDQVLRQDV it is within the TIF district and may have applicable upgrade costs to apply but, be yond that, no new projects seem to stand out as being able or eligible for new fund ing. In a subsequent council vote, the new city sewer rate schedule was approved so the city can move forward with the Clean Water Fund loan closing. While the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer rates will in crease dramatically across the board, the TIF assistance will allow for a less sub stantial increase. The TIF assistance for the new sewer plant means the new ad justed rates will be reduced for volume charges from $7.88 down to $7.11 per 100 cubic feet of usage.

Life of a killdeer by Larry Samson Special to the Leader SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; While the killdeer is considered a shoreline bird, they often inhabit inland short grassy areas where they hunt for insects. They like lawns, pastures and meadows, spending much of the day and into the night feeding. They like to run in short jerky dashes, stop and look to see if they scared up any insects and then repeat the process. Killdeer migrate to the warm southern region for the winters and return north for the breeding season.

Ceel and others had gathered at the site of Camp Riverside 626 last Thursday, Aug. 8, for the dedication of a plaque commemorating the work of those men, the men who lived and worked there from 1933 to 1942 as members of the Civilian Conservation Corps. A sizeable donation by Ceel and his family set in motion the plaque construction project which, with additional funds provided by the Burnett County Forest and Parks Department, came to fruiWLRQ WKLV PRQWK IXOĂ&#x20AC;OOLQJ &HHO¡V GUHDP to honor his father and the others who served at the camp. 7KHGHGLFDWLRQ â&#x20AC;&#x153;I planned this project two years ago as a way to honor my father, Jerome Ceel, who worked at the Riverside camp in 1939 and for all the thousands of men across the country who worked in CCC camps,â&#x20AC;&#x153; said Ceel in his remarks during the dedication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to recognize those who lived and worked at Camp Riverside.

Riverside/from page 1 But for 93-year-old Warren Melin, who worked in the camp from 1938-40, the memories of planting and cutting trees and working on other projects remain clear. During the dedication, Melin was asked if he would like to recount a few camp days stories and he eagerly took the microphone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just how many trees did you say the Riverside corps planted?â&#x20AC;? Melin queried Nichols. Nichols answer of nearly 2.5 million trees planted brought a smile to Melinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I must have planted more than a million,â&#x20AC;? he joked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sure felt like it.â&#x20AC;? When asked to comment on the good money he earned while working in the CCC, Melin laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If $1 a day was good money, then I guess it was good money.â&#x20AC;? Melin was also questioned on how the men fared during the cold Wisconsin winters and if there was a cold-weather policy for work stoppage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, when it got to be 20 below, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go out and work,â&#x20AC;? recalled Melin. Melin said all the hard labor did have a positive effect on the young workers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They came into camp in pretty bad shape but when they left they were big men.â&#x20AC;?

+LVWRU\RI&&& President Roosevelt created the CCC project during the Depression as a means of putting men back to work. The camps were built for corps members to stay in while they planted trees, and created parks and other recreational facilities. Young men working in the camps received a cash allowance of $30 a month with $25 being sent home to their families. The men were able to keep the other $5 for spending money. Clothes, room and board, medical attention and entertainment were provided during their camp stay. Thousands of young men across the country served one-year stints in the CCC. &DPS5LYHUVLGHSURMHFWV The men of Camp Riverside completed many projects during the years between 1933-1942 including: â&#x20AC;˘ Cleanup and reforestation following DDFUHĂ&#x20AC;UHLQFOXGLQJSODQWLQJRI million jack pine, Norway, white pine and spruce trees; â&#x20AC;˘ Construction of a 130-foot, two-span timber bridge on St. Croix Trail over the St. Croix River; â&#x20AC;˘ Approximately 75 miles of truck trails ZLWKWKHSULPDU\SXUSRVHRIPRYLQJĂ&#x20AC;UHĂ&#x20AC;JKWLQJWUXFNVDQGPDFKLQHU\ â&#x20AC;˘ 107 miles of metallic circuit telephone lines for the use of the Burnett/Washburn Ă&#x20AC;UHSURWHFWLRQGLVWULFW Â&#x2021; 7ZR Ă&#x20AC;UH WRZHUV 6WHUOLQJ 7RZHU RI Polk County and the McKenzie Tower in Burnett County; â&#x20AC;˘ A large, earthen dam situated on Loon Creek for the purpose of raising the level of the many lakes in the Loon Creek chain; â&#x20AC;˘ Park and campsite construction; Â&#x2021;/DNHDQGĂ&#x20AC;VKKDELWDWLPSURYHPHQW â&#x20AC;˘ Raising and releasing approximately 3,000 pheasants; â&#x20AC;˘ Timber-stand improvement; and â&#x20AC;˘ Water-table survey and mapping.

As Ceel lingered, too, taking a last look at the plaque dedicated to his father and all who served at CCC camps, the voices of Camp Riverside men could, again, almost be heard in the wind passing through the pines. - with information from the Burnett County Forest and Parks Department and the Burnett County Historical Society

Usually, when traveling from the Southwest to the Midwest and back, we follow our campCarrie Classon ground guidebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s byzantine directions off the freeway and onto county roads, then onto smaller and smaller gravel roads. But I received a GPS system for my birthday from my parents and was astonished to learn I could simply type in the coordinates and have the comforting voice of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richardâ&#x20AC;? guide me directly to an obscure campground after dark. Since this campground was better hidden than most, I was impressed. The end of my summer was spent with my niece and nephew. This was a rare treat. Dealing with the last of the packing and sorting, they were with me as I went through the contents of my now-empty drawers. Long-forgotten jewelry was of interest to my niece and miscellanea from my desk drawers were of particular interest to my 5-year-old nephew, Beau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do you have so many quartz crystals? meFKDQLFDOSHQFLOV"Ă DVKOLJKWV"PLQLVFUHZGULYHUV" Mexican coins? little tablets? magic markers?â&#x20AC;? he asked. The result was a lot of my junk migrated to my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house which made me a little guilty and Beau very happy. Yesterday I found more graph paper, and Beau was over the moon. Spending time with Isabelle and Beau, I realized how simple my life is most of the time. Keeping track of the activities and needs of two children is exhausting, and I watched with admiration my brother-inlaw and sister as they negotiated parenthood with humor and grace. Time spent with children seems accelerated to me. An afternoon slips away; the evening is over before it has begun. Entire days evaporate in the presence of boundless energy and constant diver-

sions. At the end of the day I lay in the pink bed I had commandeered from Isabelle and wondered where the day had gone. As I prepared to leave, Beau said he was going to stop me and he did, temporarily, by hanging onto my knees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you stay one more day?â&#x20AC;? he asked, and I wished I could. I wanted to hear more about his time-travel inventions on graph paper and the device he is making by strapping his sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piano practice timer to a large magnet with duct tape. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a metal detector that DOVRĂ&#x20AC;QGVPLQHUDOVÂľKHDVVXUHVPH ,VDEHOOHLVJURZing so tall and sophisticated I fear I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize her at Christmastime.

My brother-in-lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good cooking behind me, I sit in my little chair by the lake I cannot quite see and eat my traditional camping dinner of Triscuits and cheese. (After a bit of experimentation, I have concluded that Triscuits and a good cheese, with the obligatory glass of wine, is the ideal solo camping IDUH 7KHUHLVQRRQHHOVHLQWKHFDPSJURXQG0LOR and I sit together and listen to the water. The contrast between this life I have chosen and my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is striking. Sitting somewhere in the middle of nowhere with no one but Milo for company, no one requires my care and no one knows where I am except for Richard, my disembodied GPS man. I imagine the pleasant tumult at my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: bedtime stories, inventions, art projects and a dinner that involves more than Triscuits. There is a sweetness in the still solitude and a melancholy too. I sit in my little chair and take time to appreciate both. Till next time, â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Carrie

I believe it is easy for one to look back on their life and see it as linear. I grew up believing my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives before my siblings and I came into the picture were undeviating, direct. I heard stories of my father as he struggled with jobs and money until he decided one day to become a doctor. My parents married DWDJHLQ7KHLUĂ&#x20AC;UVWKRPHZDV a run-down trailer home in Colorado with rats for guests and tires on the roof to keep it from blowing off.

Before my grandma died and my grandpa moved out of their house, they used to live right next door to us. There was this little tiny patch of trees and bushes separating our homes. My grandpa cut through the brush and saplings and laid down a path of wood chips. Sometimes we would pick through the path for large wood chips and try to skip them on our lake. It was PXFKPRUHGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWKDQURFNVEXW every once in a while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get one or two skips out of them.

saplings and wild strawberry bushes began to overshadow the path, Grandpa would take out his tools and chop back the unwanted distractions to make our path clear once again. Every Christmas, until cousins grew up, got married and started their own lives, we would all gather at Grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house for a traditional Christmas dinner. I loved the company, but hated the food. To this day, I still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who started oyster stew and chicken wild rice soup for a Christmas dinner tradition, but it was an unwritten rule to follow tradition no matter what. My 5-foot-5-inch Norwegian grandpa would pray before the meal. He always cleared his throat and then said authoritatively, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pray.â&#x20AC;? I liked the way his voice sounded during prayer, like he was thanking an old friend. While everybody pigged out on foulsmelling oysters and weird-looking wild rice, I gnawed on my lefse, a Norwegian recipe, with plenty of butter and brown sugar. I was given the disapproving stare from my parents across the busy room. I could almost read their thoughts: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quit whining, shut up and eat the stew!â&#x20AC;? But one look at that stuff and my eyes started to water. I was quite the picky eater as a kid.

My grandma clung to traditions. Big or small, she loved them. Things like making popcorn balls every autumn, watching â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr. Quinn, Medicine Womanâ&#x20AC;? with Fresca and popcorn, wearing your best lipstick no matter how the day goes, and making oyster stew every Christmas are now woven with nostalgia into my life. Even during stretches of months where the patchwork quilt of my life is fraying at the seams, those threads of memories hold the separate patches together. Chicken soup is supposed to be good for you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it warms your soul. But those stories are like how I pictured my parent stories: some bad parts, some scary parts, but mostly good and inspirational where everything worked out OK in the end. Life is more like oyster stew. Some people love it, some people load it with stuff like crackers, some people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the taste or smell of it, some enjoy it only every once in a while, and for some it represents tradition or a special time. Oyster stew is better for your soul. And LI\RXĂ&#x20AC;QG\RXUVHOIEHLQJVHUYHGDKHDSing bowl of metaphorical oyster stew in your life, just remember what I was told at Christmastime, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get what you JHWDQG\RXGRQ¡WWKURZDĂ&#x20AC;WÂľ

which camp my new friend was in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tool, right?â&#x20AC;? I began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like paper. Or a textbook. Or a pencil or calculator. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fortunate because my school supports the use of technology in the classroom.â&#x20AC;? ´,MXVWĂ&#x20AC;QGLWGLVKHDUWHQLQJÂľP\QHZ friend interjected, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when students are watching a video, or texting, or checking social media in class when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lecturing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right. Well then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a classroom management issue.â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are absolutely inappropriate uses of this tool in the classroom - just like pens, pencils and paper. A teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to manage that - regardless of the tool.â&#x20AC;? My new friend looked confused. When I was the age my students are now, I explained, I had a certain thrilling fascination with the art and science of spit-wad ballistics. Now, as most middle school boys know, the best material and method with which to create a spit wad is to combine common notebook paper with saliva, chew, size, shape and viola! One of the best ways to propel a spit wad is with a straw. Straws are not common classroom supSOLHVKRZHYHUDQGDUHHDVLO\FRQĂ&#x20AC;Vcated. 6RVDYY\VSLWZDGDĂ&#x20AC;FLRQDGRVXQGHUstand that many styles of pen can also HDVLO\EHFRQYHUWHGWRĂ&#x20AC;QHDFFXUDWHDQG

discrete shooters fully capable - in the hands of a skilled marksman - of causing a ruckus on the other side of the math room. So, as a teacher, what is to be done? Ban pens and paper? Allow only certain brands of pens, and paper coated with a bitter-tasting chemical causing nausea and diarrhea if ingested? Obviously the best solution here is for a teacher to sharpen his classroom management skills. Seasoned teachers know that communicating clear expectations and following through with promised consequences is only half of the equation. Recognizing the subtle signs and reading a room is the other: A telling glance, expression or posture, a sudden change in the tone, mood or noise level. A good teacher manages a classroom like a good mechanic tunes an engine: Looking, listening, feeling the hum, rumble and vibe, offering every resource at his GLVSRVDOWRDFKLHYHSHDNHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\DQG having complete control of every tool in his tool box.

Festival featured guest artist Erich Peltz ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Erich Peltz is the guitar-playing cowboy Sam in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy for Youâ&#x20AC;? and Lysander in â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Midsummer Nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dreamâ&#x20AC;? as part of the summer troupe at Festival Theatre.

Peltz grew up in St. Louis, Mo., and his earliest performance art activities were at Notre Dame High and Christian Brothers College High School in musical theater.

o youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wondered about that heirloom in the attic? Even if you knew what it was, you probably wondered if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth anything. For help, you need the advice of an antique appraiser, someone who knows his stuff big-time. But youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather not travel all RYHUWRĂ&#x20AC;QGVRPHRQHZLWKNQRZOHGJH and honest experience. Mark Moran, from Iola, Wis., not only has the smarts from a lifetime love of antiques, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written scores of books and articles as well. Over the years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developed his skills into a much-talked-about antique roadshow, and nowadays he travels throughout the Upper Midwest sharing his much-acclaimed expertise via what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;appraisal theater.â&#x20AC;? In other words, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loads of fun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and his show is set for 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24, at Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park. Immediately after college, Moran had started as a journalist. Since the 1990s, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to devote all his energies to his passion for the world of antiques and collectibles, and doing so in an entertaining fashion. For several years he penned numerous articles and popular books for Krause Publications, which specialized in material for hobbyists and collectors. His reputation led to appearances on PBS-TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular â&#x20AC;&#x153;Antiques Roadshow.â&#x20AC;? But when Krause ceased its publishing activities in 2011, Moran didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss a beat as he decided to go on the road. Summing up the past years, Moran notes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the 1970s I became a collector of antiques. In the 1980s, a dealer in antiques. In the 1990s, I started writing books about antiques, and have 27 titles to my credit. Along the way Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met hundreds of great folks in the trade and learned from them as well.â&#x20AC;? And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s combined his

Peltz Peltz is a fan of athletics says of the experience. and outdoor sports. He Fun has become a Ă&#x20AC;VKHVSOD\VVRFFHUIULVbee, and runs. He also is theme in Peltzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art making. He says he was, employed backstage for â&#x20AC;&#x153;lucky to learn, at an Kirkland Fine Arts Cencan Fight Directors. Peltz choreographed early part of my career, ter in Decatur, Ill., and WKHKLODULRXVĂ&#x20AC;JKWVDPRQJWKHFRZER\V that theater art is about has worked as a warein â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy for You,â&#x20AC;? and leads what is re- loving to explore and adhouse administrator for IHUUHGWRDVDĂ&#x20AC;JKWFDOOEHIRUHHDFKVKRZ venture.

zest for antiques with his love of people and become a unique performer to wide acclaim. Indeed, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transformed the mundane task of antique appraisal into an art form. So if you head out to Forts Folle Avoine on Aug. 24, be prepared for an interesting combo of historic lore and expert-but-relaxed advice on the who/ what/why of the objects brought for appraisal. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything you personally would like appraised? No problem whatsoever, as Moran skillfully draws on his years of experience to not just explain what is being shown, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll often include info that goes far beyond the usual well-this-is-whatitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-worth approach. In other words, fun and audience involvement is what make Moranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs so memorable. Audiences can usually experience several â&#x20AC;&#x153;aha!â&#x20AC;? moments during his show. Moran uses his old news reporter skills to explain the background of the pieces displayed. While he gears his presentations to hold the interest of all from kids to seniors, his joy of performing is readily apparent to all whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen him. As he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My approach canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be just history, facts and values, it has to be a fun presentation, and I always leave them wanting more. The

question I love to hear at the end of each program is, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When are you coming back?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Moranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s travels have resulted in lots of stories. He never knows what to expect. For instance, he explains how â&#x20AC;&#x153;A woman bought a house in 1945, and the previous owners had left an old table lamp. She took good care of it for almost 70 years and brought it to one of my programs. Turns out it was a Tiffany acorn lamp, circa 1910, worth about $8,000.â&#x20AC;? Another time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple brought a pair of cloisonne [enameled metalwork] elephants into a program. They had been inherited from an uncle. They later sold at auction for just over $12,000. Finally, on a house call after an appraisal event, a woman showed me a pair of bookends inherited from an aunt, who got them in the 1930s. They were bronze, marble and ivory images of storks. The last pair of these that sold at auction in 2008 brought $15,000.â&#x20AC;? Then again, not all items turn out to be as valuable as people think. Once a family presented a drinking pot and told a family story about how President Lincoln had sipped from it. Great story, but the piece, Moran was able to decipher, was of a type that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til 40 years after Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assassination. So they had a good story, but the evidence didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match.

Town of Sand Lake holds annual picnic TOWN OF SAND LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday, Aug. 11, current and former residents of the Town of Sand Lake gathered for the annual picnic that was held at the Sand Lake Town Hall. The town hall is the former Dongola School so several students that had attended the school also came to the picnic. A potluck meal was shared along with much conversation and reminiscing. The former students shared pictures of classmates and memories of their time at the one-room school. Some of the memories LQFOXGHGSXPSLQJZDWHUWRĂ&#x20AC;OOWKHFURFN water cooler that sat in the entryway, asking the teacher permission to go to the outhouse, helping wash the blackboard and hauling in wood for the furnace. One former student pointed to a big cupboard and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the cupboard where the goiter pills were kept and, sometimes, some of the boys would sneak extra pills.â&#x20AC;? There was also reminiscing about the community and its people. One family, in 1899, purchased 160 acres on the Yellow River in the Town of Sand Lake. They paid $200 for their property. The family, with six children, came from Isanti, Minn. They put their belongings in a wagon and, walking, they herded their animals to the St. Croix River, which they crossed by ferry, and continued on to their purchased property. Sadly, the couple had to leave behind WKH JUDYHV RI WKHLU Ă&#x20AC;UVWERUQ LQIDQW VRQ and three small daughters. They did not have a special cemetery but had picked a lovely spot under a tree where they

7KLVIRRWEULGJHEXLOWE\DIDPLO\LQZDVXVHGWRFURVVWKH<HOORZ5LYHUz3KRWRVVXE PLWWHG buried their children. It is written in family history that one of the daughters remembered a visit to Minnesota with her mother in 1915. Her mother cried when she saw that the tree shading the place where her children were buried had been cut down and the gravesites were being farmed. The family built a house and barn along the Yellow River. They raised sheep and cattle and raised potatoes on 80 acres. They had a potato digger pulled by four

horses. With the help of the entire family, the potatoes were then picked by hand and put into baskets. A large area was dug near the Yellow River, covered with long poles and sod laid over the top, providing storage for the potatoes.

It kept them cool in the hot weather and from freezing when it turned cold. The crop would later be hauled by wagon to Grantsburg and sold and loaded into boxcars for shipment by rail. For miles, the only way to cross the Yellow River was by a small boat or a raft, so their ambitious family built a footbridge, which made life much easier for the family and others. Later they built â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what at that time was unique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a cement-slab bridge a few hundred feet downriver for wagons hauling hay, etc. If the sun is just right, some of these cement slabs are noticeable in the river today. There is a natural spring along the river where the family built a springhouse to keep the milk and cream cool for their own use and for what was sold. The family continued to live on their farm until 1941. This picnic was a fun time to reacquaint with the community and a chance to look into what life was like attending a oneroom school with all eight grades and also a look into the life of a family establishing a farm in the early 1900s. In many ways, things have certainly changed over the years, but gatherings like this may promote and keep the community spirit alive and well. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with information from Lillian Anderson

Festival Theatre holds summer workshops ST. CROIX FALLS - Festival Theatre interns and apprentices have been granted a rare opportunity this summer, experiencing workshops normally offered to top executives in the business world. These seminars, led by executive coach Sydney Paredes of Taylors Falls, Minn., focusing on centering techniques, are adding value to the theater artist internship program in immeasurable ways. Paredes, owner of Breakthrough Leadership, and her husband, Don Hansen, have been patrons and supporters of Festival Theatre for many years, hosting numerous actors in their home. In 2012, Paredes offered a one-hour training session for the summer company using centering techniques, which are a normal component in her Centering for Success seminars. Because of the positive feedback she received from the actors who participated in the workshop, Paredes considered offering it again in 2013, and discussed last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience with

colleagues. She was astounded by the positive reaction and support offered. Business friends offered to support the HIIRUWĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOO\VRWKHZRUNVKRSVFRXOG be held at no cost to the acting company. Paredes decided to have two sessions, one at the beginning of the season in early June and a follow-up in August. 7KHQ DQRWKHU FROOHDJXH /\QQ %DVNĂ&#x20AC;HOG of Wisdom Horse Coaching, suggested including an equine-assisted workshop within the program. This was arranged for a Sunday in June, resulting in a pilot program of centering coaching for actors, named Presence for Actors. Centering is a practice that cultivates a way of being that feels stable, relaxed and generous under pressure. A person who is centered can recognize and deal with emotional hijacking whenever it occurs. Emotional hijacking is the term describing our actions and reactions when under stress or pressure. With coaching, a person can learn to recognize their own

unique response to stress, and can learn to return to a centered, calm, stable state, in order to handle such situations with a thinking response rather than an emotional or defensive one. Equine-assisted coaching involves understanding how a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy affects those around him or her. Horses respond genuinely to the energy they feel from people. When a person is off-center, the negative, defensive energy can be felt by others and barriers are set up. Conversely, with positive, centered energy, people open up. Horses do, too. A person begins to realize that his or her level of preoccupation or self-consciousness has a big effect on others, and this is more obvious when standing next to a horse. Festival Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer interns will long remember what they learned in this program. These statements certainly sum LWXSZHOO´,OHDUQHGWREHPRUHFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQW in myself, to silence the voice that says Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not good enough and to live in my

body more fully.â&#x20AC;? Another, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The presentation was extremely useful. It gave me tools to use in my life that I will continue to practice for a long time.â&#x20AC;?

In that world, nobody is going to pay them for making their beds or taking out the trash.

their own clothes and, yes, even taking out the trash. On the other hand, you might pay your kids for chores that demand more time and energy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; contributions to the life of the household that go beyond the call of duty. This might include mowing the lawn, washing the car or, in the case of a responsible teenager, baby-sitting younger siblings for an entire Saturday afternoon. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a regular responsibility or a chore that earns a â&#x20AC;&#x153;paycheck,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to communicate clearly what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for in terms of the time frame and the level of quality you expect. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Q: What do you do when your spouse is unwilling to compromise or discuss issues that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on in your marriage? Dr. Greg Smalley, vice president of Family Ministries: The key is to dig down below the surface issue to what

deners sweat and groan from the work required to keep weeds down, all for the reward of tasty vegetables or beautiful blooms. God offers a variety of trade-offs, too. We can trade our sorrows, disappointments and worries for his incomparable peace. We can transfer our dependency on status, money or family to the assurance of being Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child now and eternally. We can trade our sinful pursuits for the felt blessing of his presence. We can trade our treasures and pleasures for the joy of serving him in a ministry of his choosing.

I consider them rubbish that I may gain Christ and be found in him ... â&#x20AC;&#x153; (PhilipSLDQV

is actually driving both spouses feelings of hurt. Instead of getting stuck arguing DERXWDVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FLVVXH PRQH\VH[NLGV ZRUNHWF RUZKDWHDFKSDUWQHULVGRLQJ wrong, use the opportunity to discuss what is really going on deep inside of you. What drives hurt and frustration in marriage? Buttons. Whenever someone says something that hurts you or makes you mad, it pushes your buttons. Common buttons include feeling rejected, abandoned, helpless, inadequate, unloved, worthless or unimportant. All of these buttons are ultimately rooted in fear. When someone pushes your fear button, you tend to react with unhealthy words or actions calculated to motivate the other person to change and give you what you want. For example, if you fear being a failure, you want to feel successful. If you fear being rejected, you desire to feel accepted. Most of us use unhealthy reactions to deal with our fear, and, as a result, we sabotage our relationships. The key to breaking this cycle is for \RX DQG \RXU VSRXVH WR Ă&#x20AC;UVW LGHQWLI\ your buttons, and then your reactions. Remember, you can either talk about the surface issue, arguing about what the other person does that hurts or frustrates you, or you can talk about what is really
