Deputy grievance not quite settled yet

by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTY - According to Sheriff Dean Roland, the grievance complaint brought by former sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies Travis Thiex and Thad Osborne had been settled on July 22. Then, according to former county Administrator Candace Fitzgerald and Burnett County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chief Deputy Scott Burns, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. For weeks, there was no comment at all. More recently, Roland again reported that a settlement had been reached, and county board Chairman Don Taylor conĂ&#x20AC;UPHGLW$FFRUGLQJWRERWKPHQWKHVHWtlement stipulates that Osborne will retire from county employment, and Thiex will UHWXUQWRZRUNXQGHUFHUWDLQFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQWLDO conditions. Now, in a memo dated Thursday, Sept. 12, county corporation counsel David Grindell has advised Taylor that the deal UHTXLUHVIXUWKHUDSSURYDO â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we are listed as a party to this action,â&#x20AC;? the memo states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do believe that LWZLOOUHTXLUH%XUQHWW&RXQW\¡VDSSURYDO of the settlement agreement prior to it being effective.â&#x20AC;?

missed in August 2012 for their role in what Roland characterized as a cover-up, DQGWKH\Ă&#x20AC;OHGDMRLQWJULHYDQFHFRPSODLQW for wrongful termination through their union, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association. The hearing process ran into delays in part due to a change in arbitrators. The proceedings were closed to the public; and individuals near the case often gave FRQĂ LFWLQJUHSRUWVUHJDUGLQJGHWDLOVRIWKH hearing. There were, for example, various reasons given to the press regarding the continuance of the hearing. However, when the hearing reconvened on July 22, all parties were suddenly willing to discuss a settlement. In the wake of the verbal agreement UHDFKHGWKDWGD\WKHFRXQW\IDFHGTXHVtions about departmental jurisdiction and authority. Yes, Roland engaged in a verbal agreement. However, former $GPLQLVWUDWRU&DQGDFH)LW]JHUDOGTXHVtioned whether Roland had sole authority in this case. Now the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney has reviewed county policy and rendered an opinion. Grindellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memo reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though it is a disciplinary action in name, it is and was a claim against the county, which is being resolved by a settlement DJUHHPHQWUHTXLULQJWKHFRXQW\WRPDNH VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWSD\PHQWÂľ Grindell recommended that the agreement be signed by the county and be ap-

proved by the full county board. As a matter of procedure, the administrative committee reviewed the settlement at the Tuesday, Sept. 17, meeting before it could be sent to the full board for approval on Thursday, Sept. 19. The settlement is comprised of two separate GRFXPHQWV  7KH Ă&#x20AC;UVW GRFXPHQW GHWDLOV the settlement with Thiex and was kept FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQWLDO  7KH FRPPLWWHH ZHQW LQWR closed session to discuss it, and afterward, the committee voted to delete one paragraph prior to sending it to the board for approval. The second document is a two-page agreement signed by Osborne on Aug. 30, the union attorney on Sept. 3 and Roland on Sept. 4. The agreement stipulates that Osborne will be paid through Sept. DQGZLOOUHWLUHZLWKIXOOEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVDVRI Sept. 14. The committee took issue with a SDUDJUDSKLQWKHDJUHHPHQWWKDWUHTXLUHV Osborne to waive any and all right to future employment with the county, calling the wording of that paragraph â&#x20AC;&#x153;punitive.â&#x20AC;? The committee voted to delete that paragraph in part due to a concern raised by Siren Police Chief and fellow county board member Chris Sybers. Osborne was recently hired by the Siren Police Department, which has a mutual aid agreement with the county. Mutual aid is an agreement among emergency responders to provide assistance across jurisdictional boundaries.

Presenting a memo from Roland to his staff dated Sept. 6, Sybers complained that Rolandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation of the settlement agreement poses a public safety risk. ´(IIHFWLYHWKLVGDWH3ROLFH2IĂ&#x20AC;FHU7KDG Osborne, currently employed by the Siren Police Department, is not to be utilized under any circumstances in the capacity of mutual aid in assisting this department on any call outside of his employed jurisdiction,â&#x20AC;? the memo states. Roland reasoned that under the terms of the mutual aid law, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Osborne would be acting as an agent of this department and the county,â&#x20AC;? which would be a violation of his agreement to waive future employment. Sybers consulted an attorney and shared the opinion with the committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Technically, by law, the sheriff is correct,â&#x20AC;? Sybers read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sketchy and vague interpretation of the mutual aid law.â&#x20AC;? Sybers said the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memo creates a liability issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies are called away and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an accident or an active shooter and (Osborneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) on duty, he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t respond,â&#x20AC;? Sybers explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What if someone gets hurt? Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liable? We are.â&#x20AC;? Roland declined to comment on Sybersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concern or on the changes to the settlement agreements until he could consult with corporation counsel.

County to pursue $4.5 million loan by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer %851(77&2817<$VRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVKDYH planned and implemented the multimillion dollar communications upgrades, considered highway improvement plans and approved a remodeling of the 911 call center, a big part of the discussions has FHQWHUHGDURXQGWKHTXHVWLRQRIKRZWR pay for such projects. Experts have been called in to review the bonding process, discuss the pros and cons of bonding versus borrowing, and UHYLHZ%XUQHWW&RXQW\¡VĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOSLFWXUH and fund balance. Now that costs have been incurred and payments are being made to vendors, decisions need to be made. At the Tuesday, Sept. 17, administraWLRQFRPPLWWHHPHHWLQJRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVGHFLGHG that borrowing $4.5 million was preferable to bonding. Issuing a bond can be costly from a fee standpoint, and all the funds have to be disbursed on the date of the bond which means that interest starts accruing right away, whether the county uses the money or not. With a loan, only 5 percent of the loan needs to be disbursed on the initial date, and the county would be able to draw funds as needed. Additionally, there is no penalty for early payment. A representative from Bremer Bank was on hand to explain how to proceed and what a loan in that amount might look like. Statutes dictate that the county ZRXOGQHHGDWKUHHTXDUWHUVPDMRULW\YRWH among supervisors to borrow and that the Ă&#x20AC;UVW SD\PHQW QHHGV WR EH LQ WKH EXGJHW

for the coming year. The county needs WRĂ&#x20AC;QDOL]HWKHH[DFWDPRXQWRIWKHORDQ the duration of the loan and a sense of the VSDQEHWZHHQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWGLVEXUVHPHQWDQG WKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOGUDZ2QWKDWODVWSRLQWERDUG Chairman Don Taylor estimated that funds would be drawn over the course of 10 months. Taylor challenged the comPLWWHH´7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKLQJZHKDYHWRGRLV decide as a board to borrow or bond.â&#x20AC;? Committee member Maury Miller turned to the bank representative and DVNHG ´&DQ \RX VD\ ZLWK FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFH that it will cost less to borrow?â&#x20AC;? When the representative answered yes, Miller spoke for the committee by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in consensus that borrowing is better than bonding.â&#x20AC;? If the county borrowed $4.5 million with a 10-year amortization schedule and an estimated interest rate of 3 percent, it would result in an annualized payment of approximately $525,000. That kind of payment would result in a cost to the taxpayer of $31 for every $100,000 worth of property owned. In previous conversations, supervisors had discussed straw polls with constituents that led them to believe that $30 would be an acceptable increase. There are at least two reasons to expedite the process. Miller would urge the board to lock in to a low rate as soon as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rates are only going up,â&#x20AC;? Miller said, just before other committee members expressed regret that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act sooner. In fact, just a few months ago, the interest rate being discussed was under 2.5 percent.

Two critically injured in crash SAWYER COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Two Hayward locals suffered life-threatening injuries on Sunday, Sept. 15, after crashing on CTH K, one mile south of CTH B in Sawyer County near Hayward. Initial investigations state that the driver, Louis Gordon, 53, of Hayward, went off the road on a curve and struck several trees. Gordon was not wearing his seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle, suffering life-threatening injuries.

The passenger, Geneva Isham, 78, of Hayward, was wearing her seat belt but also suffered life-threatening injuries. Both Gordon and Isham were transported to the Hayward hospital, Gordon was later airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire. The accident remains under investigation by the Wisconsin State Patrol. - Danielle Moe with information from the Wisconsin State Patrol

SCF Plan Commission pushes for river lands

Recommends city pursue purchase of several Xcel Energy parcels

by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After months of study, debate and research, the city of St. Croix Falls Plan Commission voted to recommend to the full common council that the city purchase several parcels of riverfront property along the St. Croix Riverway from Xcel Energy, although the commission needed several votes to make their intention clear. They debated the issue and made a recommendation to the full council at their regular meeting on Monday, Sept. 16. The parcels have been owned by the utility for decades near the utilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hydroelecWULFGDPDQG;FHOĂ&#x20AC;UVWDSSURDFKHGWKHFLW\ HDUOLHUWKLV\HDUJLYLQJWKHPWKHULJKWRIĂ&#x20AC;UVW refusal on the parcels, while also noting that several adjacent landowners currently have licenses with the utility to use the lands, for an annual fee. At issue in the debate has been how the commission would consider a so-called pubOLFSXUSRVHIRUDFTXLULQJDWOHDVWVRPHRIWKH property. Due to city codes that limit development because of its proximity to the scenic national riverway, current ordinances allow literally no development or dramatic alterations, regardless of who owns the land. The unknown issue all along has been how much Xcel would charge for the lands, although the potential tax impact of the city owning the lands instead of the adjacent landowners is also a guess at this point. Because Xcel is a utility, they do not technically pay property taxes on the lands, but instead make a so-called Payment In Lieu Of Taxes annual payments to the state, which then distributes that money to the city, based primarily on structure value on those lands. With the PILOT fee structure, the true tax base potential is unknown, but after several discussions, the commission estimated the overall lost tax impact of approximately $129 annually per 50-foot lot, although on some blocks or parcels, adding a river lot to private property could change their overall property values up even higher. The purchase price on the Xcel parcels is also an unknown and may not be determined for some time still, but is likely to play into the full councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future decisions on a possible purchase. Doing the math, the tax impact of the city owning the lots was believed to be minimal,

the issue of whether the current NR 118 rules limiting what is allowed as far as development on the aforementioned Xcel Energy lots and whether they would apply to the lots the city is considering purchasing. In the end, Peck informed the commission that the rules only apply up to the hydro dam from the south, and therefore do not technically apply. However, the current city ordinances do include provisions of NR 118 as a governing FRGH7KRVHOLPLWVUHTXLUHVHWEDFNVRIDWOHDVW 100 feet from the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordinary high-water marks and apply for lands west of Hwys. 87 and 35.

Huppert said the previous week that he tried to get the community club involved, later adding that he felt there was an opportunity for other organizations to make money at the event. He alluded to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad bloodâ&#x20AC;? between himself and community club members, but at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special meeting Moore said it simply boiled down to the fact that it is not legal for the community club to obtain a license for use by a business. Moore is owner of the Bon Ton, another bar on Main Street, as well as Thrivent Financial and a member of the community club. He later repeated that the community club cannot apply for a beer license to be used by a business.

Shoreland ordinance to be interpreted â&#x20AC;&#x153;in favor of the property ownerâ&#x20AC;? by Mary Stirrat Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Polk County Supervisor Russell Arcand summed up his feelings about the Tuesday, Sept. 17, county board meeting during his opportunity to comment at the end of the meeting. The amount of business conducted, he said, was minimal. It could have waited until next month, and the meeting could probably have been canceled. Supervisors are paid for each meeting they attend, and Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting cost in the neighborhood of $2,400. The main item on the agenda was a resolution encouraging a broader interpretation of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoreland zoning ordinance, to make it easier for property owners and contractors to make improvements along the lakes and rivers in Polk County. This resolution was discussed last month and referred to the land information committee for recommendations. This month, with nominal changes, the resolution was approved by a vote of 14 to 5. 6XSHUYLVRU7RP0DJQDĂ&#x20AC;FLSURPSWHGE\ Balsam Lake contractor Chris Nelson and Amery area attorney Adam Jarchow, submitted the original resolution last month. Nelson and Jarchow spoke out at both meetings against what they felt were unfair practices by the zoning office and zoning board of appeals. They said that permits for property improvements were too often improperly denied, which hindered area contractors in their business, affected local retailers and inhibited improvements that 3RON&RXQW\6XSHU would increase prop- YLVRU .LP 2&RQQHOO erty values. FKDLU RI WKH ODQG LQ After review by IRUPDWLRQFRPPLWWHH the land information committee earlier this month, committee Chair Kim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell presented the board with a proposed change in the original resolution.

One amendment removed the same clause

as recommended by the committee, but replaced it with one saying that policy will be to â&#x20AC;&#x153;favor the free and unrestricted use of private property,â&#x20AC;? resulting in economic development and job creation. A second amend- $GDP-DUFKRZRIWKH ment is the addition 7RZQRI$SSOH5LYHU of language stating 3KRWRVE\0DU\6WLUUDW that the county favors â&#x20AC;&#x153;the free and unrestricted use of private property,â&#x20AC;? and that anything that might lead to restrictions must be clearly outlined. 7KHĂ&#x20AC;QDODPHQGPHQWVWDWHVWKDWWKHUHVRlution is to be considered a statement of the principles that govern land use ordinances and not as an addition to or replacement for the shoreland protection ordinance.

A short time later Supervisor Patricia Schmidt provided a summary of decision by the board of appeals over the past three years, clearly indicating that far more variances to the zoning ordinance are granted than denied. ,QVKHVDLGSHUFHQWRIWKHUHTXHVWV were granted with no conditions, 80 percent were granted with conditions, and 15 percent were denied.

Schmidt recalled the clean water in Polk County lakes when she was a child, comparing them to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pea soupâ&#x20AC;? green that she sees in them now. She blamed the decline of the lakes on development, saying she would not support anything that encourages development.

issues and should be brought to him to deal with rather than being discussed at a public meeting.

On the other hand, Supervisor Dean Johansen argued that the resolution just reiterates current policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already there,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;why do this now? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this is helping anything.â&#x20AC;? When board Chair William Johnson asked if any other members of the land information committee wanted to comment, Moriak said that the resolution and the amendments just reinforce the actual shoreland protection ordinance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just tells the guys to do their job,â&#x20AC;? he said. Both the proposed amendments and the resolution were approved by a vote of 14 to 5. Opposed were supervisors Dean Johansen, Schmidt, Harry Johansen, Marvin Caspersen and Nelson.

Holm provided an overview of 2013 projects, including monitoring of invasive species. Over the past three years, 19 lakes have been sampled for invasive species and invasive species habitat. Of those 19, said Holm, only three are free of invasive species. Chinese mystery snails have been found in 11 of them, curly-leaf pondweed in six, purple loosestrife in four and Eurasion milfoil in one.

The latest incident began during an unre-

Infrastructure committee holds informal discussion on need for new buildings

by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer SIREN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Representatives from Ayres Associates Architectural Services were invited to the Burnett County Infrastructure Committee Wednesday, Sept. 11, meeting to have an informal discussion on the need for new highway department buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the county we are in a capital expenditures planning process,â&#x20AC;? committee Chair Chuck Awe told the Ayres representatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need information to answer concerns that have been raised as to why we are doing this. We need to know our options and have time lines as to when we should do projects and if they should be done in phases.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to hear from you and have a discussion,â&#x20AC;? replied Roger Nelson, Ayres director of business development. Nelson went on to tell the committee when planning a project he looks at the 3 Ps: purpose, process and payoff. Vice Chairman Jeremy Gronski prefaced his comments by saying he was not a board member when a previous study had been done but wondered why no action was ever taken E\WKHERDUGRQLWVĂ&#x20AC;QGLQJV Awe said a board member who was not re-elected commissioned the study and resulted in no explanation as to why the study was done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to build a case,â&#x20AC;? Awe told the Ayres representatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we want to help you substantiate the highway department needs,â&#x20AC;? replied Nelson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to gather data,â&#x20AC;? added Matthew Long, Ayres architectural services manager. Nelson suggested the committee and Ayres begin a series of interactive workshops to identify the highway department needs.

Water upgrade in Webster still not complete, but projectis under budget SCADA system purchased for almost $110,000 less than first bid by Sherill Summer Leader staff writer WEBSTER - If everything would have gone as planned, the completion date for the water utility upgrade in Webster would have been Sept. 4. That day has come and gone, and the work continues. On Tuesday, Sept. 17, a block of Hickory Street/CTH FF was dug up to replace a 3-inch water main. One of the main goals of the utility upgrade was to replace the few remaining 3-inch mains in the village. The problem was that no one knew that this section of the water main was still 3 inches until attempts were made to loop it with the water main that runs along the alley behind the drivein. Instead of connecting a couple of deadend water mains to create a loop, 350 feet of LQFKPDLQZLOOKDYHWREHUHSODFHGĂ&#x20AC;UVW,W is an example of why they are still working after the scheduled completion date. The change order authorizing the extra work was approved at the Webster Village Board meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The board also approved a $113,918.56 bid for new water meters from Dakota Supply Group. Midwest Testing will install the meters, and all of the services will be inspected for cross-contamination during installation. The purchasing on new water meters was another main goal of the water utility upgrade. Yet another goal of the upgrade was to replace the SCADA system. The SCADA system is a set of alarms at the water tower, wells and lift stations that detects when something is not functioning correctly. Parts of the SCADA system currently at Webster is outdated. The low bid of $184,814 for a new SCADA system was rejected in March because it was too expenive and more of a SCADA system than Webster needed. The village board deFLGHGWKDWDV\VWHPFRXOGEHGHVLJQHGWRĂ&#x20AC;W the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs for less money. Since that time, a SCADA system has been designed, and the village board only had to decide how to pay for it. Originally in March, the system was part of the DNR Safe Drinking Water funding source, but the safe drinking water deadline did not give the board enough time to design a system on their own. Even if the board could not pay for the system using safe-

Ignore them? We used to have these national problems: For every $4 we bring in, we spend $5; our national debt is $53,000 per person; immigration is a problem; national security is a problem; Medicare funding is a problem; growing the middle class is a problem; and Social Security funding is a problem. Starting earlier this year, I went after the Social Security funding problem/ solution by contacting our two senators and representative. I also met with Rep. Duffy, when he was in Grantsburg, with these facts: We have 10,360 in Polk County and 5,185 in Burnett County receiving Social 6HFXULW\EHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVRISHU\HDURQ average. When workers income exceeds $113,700, they are excused from paying into this fund. Why are the rich excused from paying their share? Middle class is $19,000 to $91,000 per year. Why are the rich favored over the less fortunate, who are not even middle class? I pushed for the group of us that want the $113,700 cap taken off. Since nobody has taken action on this easier solution years ago, now we have to SXVKWKHDJHRIEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVIRUWKRVHXQGHU 55 out to age 67 to secure this fund for the future. From our three federal folks, I got two indirect letter responses and one verbal, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can agree to disagree on this, OK?â&#x20AC;? No action for a solution. Why? Paying our national representatives SHU\HDUFODVVLĂ&#x20AC;HVWKHPDVULFK and I do not think they can identify who they should be serving. Our president wants us folks on Social Security to go off the COLA to the chained CPI, which means less income for the less fortunate. Why pick on the $13,900 people and excuse the $113,700 people like himself? &2/$LQFUHDVHVIRUWKHODVWĂ&#x20AC;YH\HDUV 2013, 1.7 percent; 2012, 3.6 percent; 2011, 0.0 percent; 2010, 0.0 percent; and 2009, SHUFHQW7KHĂ&#x20AC;YH\HDUDYHUDJHLV percent. Did any of your costs go up greater than 2.2 percent? If so, we are sliding downward in income. Time is past due to ask all businesses and governments for those of us with Medicare cards for a discount. For those on Social Security and Medicare, it is time to do a push back on all parties involved or they will continue to run us into greater poverty.

What happened to symptom, problem and solution? Debate means delay and nothing happens. Where are the get-it-done folks? Maybe we need more middle-class people elected. They know how to get it done. Do we have the ignore-them-andthey-will-go-away disease at the county, school district and other levels?

Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pool? I and others would like to know what happened to the Frederic Pool project (to build a new pool). I grew up with a pool and swimming lessons in Frederic and would like my children and grandchildren to do the same as it may save their life someday, or someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Someone was appointed to do this and it has been 10 years. It gives the children something constructive to do in the hot days of summer of which we have had a lot of this year.

Odd Wisconsin: Lonely protesters denounced U.S. Indian policies MADISON - During the 1830s, the U.S. government passed more than 70 laws forcing Indians from their homelands. For six more decades, it made war on any who resisted. Gen. Phil Sheridan summed up government policy in 1869 with the comment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only good Indian I ever saw was deadâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a sentiment that struck most Americans as common sense at the time. Only a few people back then thought this was immoral. A handful of Wisconsin residents were among them. The Rev. Cutting Marsh came here to help the Stockbridge tribe in 1830 and lived with them for 18 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cannot review the scenes with which I have been conver-

Siren chamber celebrates

by Carl Heidel Leader staff writer SIREN - The mood was festive as members of the Siren Chamber of Commerce gathered for the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual dinner meeting Tuesday evening, Sept. 17, at Northwoods Crossing in Siren. And there was much to celebrate. Following the social hour, guests celebrated the results of the culinary skills of Chef Jon Dykeman and Holly Mangelsen. Whether the wild rice stuffed chicken breast with honey maple glaze was better than the assorted cheesecake was a decision up for grabs. Following the meal, Chris Moore, chamber executive director, led the guests through a listing of the many accomplishments of the chamber in the past year. 7KHQVKHSURYLGHGDTXLFNJOLPSVHRIEHWter things in the year yet to come. Main speaker of the evening Drew Nussbaum, of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, described the current tourism promotional program his department is working on. Under the title of Fun in Wisconsin the campaign is using some pretty off-beat ads to catch the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye with something a little different ... like a Packer football player who lands in Oz and returns with ruby slippers. Then there was the celebration of the 2013 awards. Mike Murphy was recognized as Citizen of the Year for a long list of accomplishments. Jennemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hardware Hank received the award for Business of the Year, and a delighted Mary Charmoli was recognized as the Volunteer of the Year. And last but not least, the chamber recognized 2013 anniversary celebrations. â&#x20AC;˘ Ten-year anniversaries: Community Bank of Siren; Fourwinds Market; Jensen6XQGTXLVW ,QVXUDQFH $JHQF\ DQG 7KH Pizza Place; â&#x20AC;˘ Fifteen years: Best Western Northwoods Lodge; Interfaith Caregivers of Burnett County; Smoland Prairie Homestead Inn/B&B and the Lodge at Crooked Lake;

Menge was an undergraduate in forestry at the University of Minnesota and he went on to get a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in plant pathology. He was on the faculty at the University of California - Riverside for 33 years, studying citrus and avocado diseases as well as teaching plant pathology, mycology, and Ă&#x20AC;HOGP\FRORJ\+HHQMR\VVKDULQJVWRULHV about the students he worked with and the plant diseases he worked on. Ask him about baby carrots and Clementines VRPHWLPH'XULQJKLV\HDUVLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;HOG he found that people know a lot about plants and animals, but fungi is not as well-studied. Menge, a past Friends of Crex Board member, and active volunteer, developed the program for anyone with an interest in learning more about mushrooms and other fungi. The program provides a great learning experience for amateurs and professionals alike. This hands-on foray is the best way to learn how to recognize and identify common mushrooms that are around us all year, and to learn about the important roles fungi play in our ecosystem. Menge will lead a mushroom walk in search of edible and medicinal mushrooms, as well as those you should avoid.

The mushroom walk is timed to coincide with the peak of the emergence of wild mushrooms throughout Northwest :LVFRQVLQ%ULQJDPXVKURRPĂ&#x20AC;HOGJXLGH and your camera, if you wish. Your walks in the woods will never be the same.

ZONING ORDINANCE DRAFT RELEASED FOR REVIEW A 1st draft of the updated Polk County Zoning Ordinance, including the former Comprehensive Ordinance and Shoreland Zoning Ordinance, is now available for public review at the Polk County website: www.co.polk.wi.us (click the link on the bottom right-hand side of the homepage), in the Land Information Office and by request to Tim Anderson, Polk County Planner at (715) 485-9225 or tim.anderson@co.polk.wi.us. These ordinances regulate the uses available to landowners on their property in each district, as well as setbacks, height, and lot sizes. They also prevent incompatible land uses from existing next to each other and help protect your property rights. This revision is to modernize provisions that are in some cases over 40 years old and, as required by State law, update the shoreland zoning regulations and make all zoning consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. Polk County adopted this plan in late 2009, and this draft is the result of a process began at that time. Public participation was provided through a Citizen Advisory Committee, with the Town Comprehensive Plans and citizen surveys also providing valuable input into this process. The Land Information Committee and County Board welcomes public input on this draft and online comment form is provided on the web page. Please use this form to submit comments on the draft. Updates on this process will happen frequently so please follow the same link on the Polk County homepage for these updates.  3HK>5(?37

Kent said, detailing how the cinnamon acts as a buffer of sorts, canceling out the yeastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magic, keeping the bread from rising much at all. That whole chemistry/physics factor came back again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made enough bricks for another oven!â&#x20AC;?

The business also has a unique family twist in their stylish bread loaf logo, which was a surprise present for Kent a few years ago by their daughter, Laura, while she was working for AmeriCorps in California.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was making a pittance wage, just enough to live on, and she sent me a Christmas present,â&#x20AC;? Kent recalled, as he pointed to the framed wall art that logo is based on.

As the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baking comes to a close, Chris and Kent wait for the loaves to cool a bit and begin the tag-team process of bagging the latest bounty, standing the loaves on end. They work as a team, with Chris coming back and applying asimple,

The process of organic, preservativefree baking is not cheap, and the equipment costs can be staggering to the OD\PDQ EXW WKH Ă&#x20AC;QDO SURGXFW LV KLJKO\ sought after and they sell out literally all they make over the few days a week they bake. Kent added later that they donate leftover breads to local food shelves. While their product costs more than a typical assembly line bread, it is much more rich and makes for a hugely satisfying and dramatically healthier product. And in spite of not using preservatives, it routinely lasts a week or longer, with only the jalapeno French bread needing refrigeration. ´/RWVRIFXVWRPHUVVD\WKH\VOLFHLWĂ&#x20AC;UVW and then put it in the freezer, so they can toast it a slice at a time,â&#x20AC;? Chris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still stays good.â&#x20AC;? The Brick Oven Breads menu is now up to 16 varieties of breads, with various types of ryes, French, focaccia, numerous wheats, including wild rice, onion, cinnamon raisin, tomato basil and the aforementioned partially baked pizza crusts. Kent thinks they could even add an outdoor seating area, and a while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve expanded the cooler options with beers, cheeses and other goodies, the future is bright and may also expand to include RQH RI WKH PRUH GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW EUHDGV PDGH true pumpernickel. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one operation in

the U.S. making true brick oven pumpernickel from traditional recipes, and that is a fellow bread artisan in New England. Kent said it is different from traditional bakery varieties, which use coloring and sweeteners to achieve the deep, dark color. True Old World pumpernickel is made in long, covered pans and uses a drawn-out process with a cooler brick oven, baking as long as 12-16 hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually the last bread made,â&#x20AC;? Kent said, noting the cool oven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And well, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind being the second guy (in the U.S.) to make it!â&#x20AC;? The Brick Oven Breads operation is selfsupporting, and is a symbiotic addition to their exotic perennials and wild bird operation, and while it can be a busy addition to the plant and bird operation, especially in the spring, the healthy, handmade artisan bread market is literally all theirs, for now. The brick oven process also creates a wholesome connection to nature, from the RDNĂ&#x20AC;UHGKHDWWRWKHHDUWKHQLQJUHGLHQWV DQG LW LV H[HPSOLĂ&#x20AC;HG LQ D VWDWXH RXWVLGH the baking building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Francis (of Assisi), heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of my hero,â&#x20AC;?

But the simplicity and organic return to the art of bread is a growing fraternity of sorts, and Kent tells of a young man who was driving through to the Dakotas on Hwy. 8 when he saw the brick oven sign. The man had a baking background and stopped in to take part in the process with the Hedeens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He spent about three hours here,â&#x20AC;? Kent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wants to come back and spend the day baking. We can probably learn a lot from each other!â&#x20AC;? The bread making is simplicity, physics and chemistry applied and heated, just right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just bread,â&#x20AC;? Kent said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it would be so complicated!â&#x20AC;? While simplicity may be an art, few works of art are so good with a little butter. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Balsam Lake Brick Oven Breads is located at 1305 160th St., east of St. Croix Falls, just off Hwy. 8 and Hwy. 65, south of Balsam Lake.

It is not that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have female friends, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the easy intimacy of the group of women that I suddenly needed when I found myself so completely alone. Since that time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked to cultivate friendships with women. My landlord Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college-aged daughter lives in the house with us and, for the last few weeks, her godmother has been staying here as well. The three of us, spanning four generations, have the kind of wonderful conversations that it seems only groups of women can have. We all had dinner together with Robert the other night. Robert began to talk about how dog saliva was actually very clean and contained antibiotics and how having your plate licked by a dog was not an unsanitary thing at all. There was a silence as all three women looked at Robert. Then we began talking about men and relationships and what we liked and what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned and what we can no longer live without. Robert listened with growing unease, his eyes widened and a pained look came to his face. He tried to reintroduce the subject of dog saliva without success and quickly realized that he was outnumbered. If there had been even one other man present, we might all have had a discussion about dog saliva but, as it stood, his conversation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand a chance. Robert sat and listened for another 10 minutes with a look on his face that you might expect on someone who had just lost a toenail. Then he abruptly announced that he was going out for dessert.

2013 Cow of the Year has Owens Farms connection MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ambition Hercules Jordan is representing the Jersey breed as the 2013 Cow of the Year. That announcement was made Tuesday, Sept. 10, by Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Secretary Ben Brancel. Jordan is owned by Derek Orth of Lancaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations to Orthridge Jerseys on developing this exceptional Jersey cow, who has a strong record of milk production and excellent genetics,â&#x20AC;? said Brancel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The future of Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy industry is very bright with dedicated dairy farm families like the Orths and quality cattle like Ambition Hercules Jordan.â&#x20AC;? Ambition Hercules Jordan was bred by Amber Elliott of Marshall and was purchased by Orth in 2007 as a heifer to add to his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing herd. Elliott had purchased the dam of Jordan from Owens Farm, Inc., Frederic, where this cow line had been bred by the Owens family for a dozen bovine generations, going back to the early 1950s. Jordan has continued to increase in her production and climb in her type appraisal score each year. Through the completion of her most recent lactation, she has a lifetime production of more than 130,000 SRXQGV RI PLON DQG LV FODVVLĂ&#x20AC;HG (; ,Q KHU PRVW recent lactation, begun at age 7-01, Jordan produced 28,080 pounds of milk, 1,410 pounds of fat and 992 pounds of protein in 305 days.

ou are among the lucky ones who own woodlands. You care about being a good steward of your property. Yet, there is a lot to know about keeping woods healthy and productive; this can be overwhelming. While woodland owners share a lot in common, what you want to do on your land is an individual decision. There is a lot to consider. Are you getting what you want from your woods? Reasons for owning woodland are many and varied. Why do you own yours? Perhaps it is for aesthetics, recreation, speculation, income, a place to hunt or, most likely, some combination of these and other reasons. Have you thought about how best to HQMR\LWSURWHFWLWNHHSLWKHDOWK\SURĂ&#x20AC;W from it, and how about how to pass it on? These thoughts need serious consideration because you love your woods and want to make good decisions to keep your woods healthy, beautiful, productive and a haven for wildlife. About a year ago, American Forest Foundation released a tool to assist private landowners in starting the process of thinking about what they want from WKHLUZRRGV7KLVWRROLVDĂ&#x20AC;UVWVWHS in knowing what actions are needed to ensure your woods stay healthy and productive.

O

nce, there was a loving mother who wanted nothing but the best for her young daughter. She did everything she could and spared no expense. She was caring, nurturing and encouraging. She sought out environments in which Cindy would thrive and avoided situations that might not work out so well. One day, this loving mother decided it would be fun to explore an amusement park with Cindy. It was a beautiful day. There would be popcorn, games and rides, and best of all, they would be together ... making a memory. When they got there, it was everything sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped. There were acres of fascinating things to do and see. But the most exciting and mysterious thing in the whole place was the roller coaster. Cindy was absolutely captivated by it. And why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she be? It was huge! Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been watching it for miles even before theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d arrived. Like the skeleton of a great dinosaur, its track spanned the entire park. Everywhere, you could hear it coming or going. While Cindy threw balls, the cars clacked overhead. While Cindy raced to keep up with a melting ice-cream cone, the cars plunged and people

screamed. No. This was anything but fun. This was the opposite of fun. Cindyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother knew there was no real danger. Of this she was sure. Absolutely sure. Couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more sure. They were perfectly safe, but how to convince Cindy? To see her child so afraid, so inconsolable, was almost unbearable. All she wanted now was to get back on solid ground, sweep Cindy up in her arms and save her from this pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, Cindy,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just fun. Are you sure you want to get off?â&#x20AC;? Cindy was sure. She was absolutely sure. She couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more sure. But the highest peak was just ahead. So Cindyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother did what she thought was right. She waved. She yelled. She screamed. In order to stop the fear she had to stop the ride. Still, the cars climbed: above the games, above the buildings, above the treetops. The view was spectacular. Cindy and her mother didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop! Please stop!â&#x20AC;? They screamed, waving their arms, feeding a gripping fear. Finally they reached the top and a confused operator stopped the ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry,â&#x20AC;? he said after climbing up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let you off here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too dangerous.â&#x20AC;? Of this he was sure. Abso-

lutely sure. Couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be more sure. So he pushed the cars on. Now everyone screamed. When it was over, and they were all screamed out, Cindy stepped onto the platform and toward the exit ramp. Her tears had dried, but she still had a wild look in her eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you all right?â&#x20AC;? the operator asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes!â&#x20AC;? said Cindy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow, yes!â&#x20AC;? Her mother wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure. Parenting is a wild ride. Still, understanding the metaphor doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make watching our kids struggle any easier. Often, however, relieving them a momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unhappiness deprives them the exciting results of their own choices. Protecting them is one thing. But when we rush in too quickly, we also deprive our children a chance to develop the skills and emotional control theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to navigate the inevitably challenging DQGRIWHQGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWGHPDQGVDORQJWKH most amazing ride of all: life.

wish that horses wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t die. But they live in a dream world. Buster, a lifelong cowboy and horse trainer, takes it personally when he sees pictures of starving, skeletal, abandoned horses. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot more humane ways for a horse to die than starvation.â&#x20AC;? The Wild Horse Wreck we have created by not allowing the BLM to cull the herds of wild horses and burros is DVELJDĂ&#x20AC;DVFRDVWKH)RUHVW6HUYLFH¡V misguided policy of banning timber and grazing in national and state forests. Oh, how we have to learn the hard way. The American Indians have always held the horse in high esteem ever since Coronado crossed the border in 1535 and introduced them to us. The horse is revered, valued and used by them as chattel. But the Indians also take the

responsibility of caring for the herd and the land. They are now trying to talk to people who live behind a desk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balance.â&#x20AC;? The Navajo Nation in New Mexico, the biggest tribe in the United States, has now joined the National Congress of Indians and other tribes in support of horse slaughter in the U.S. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We â&#x20AC;Ś can no longer support the estimated 75,000 feral horses that are drinking wells dry and causing ecological damage to the drought-stricken range,â&#x20AC;? they say. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kiddinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and they know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. Studies of cost to feed and maintain one horse for a year in a rescue, feedlot, summer pasture, or refuge can be as low as $2,400 to $3,650. Using the lowest estimate, $200 per month equals $2,400 per year multiplied 75,000 horses equals $180,000,000. Three of the entities actively involved in preventing the horse slaughter plant in New Mexico are ex-governor Bill Richardson, movie star Robert Redford, and the Humane Society of the U.S. I have listened to their speeches and read

their quotes. I do not doubt they are sincere. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t question their emotional motives. However, I have yet to hear a viable solution for, not just New Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impending crisis, but for our whole countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equine catastrophe that was the result of cessation of horse slaughter plants. I would suggest that they put their money where their mouth is. Gov. Richardson has had some legal problems due to shady politics, but I would guess he could come up with $250,000. Mr. Redford has an estimated net worth of $170 million, and the recent budgets of the HSUS spending runs about $250 million a year. They ante up together DQGPDNHWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWGRQDWLRQPLOlion. That will take care of the Navajos for two years. Well, we all know they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to spend their own money, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care that much. But the train is cominâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; down the track and they are standinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; right between the rails and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better turn around and see it before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late. baxterblack.com.

Chapman can also be found working behind the scenes advocating for small landowners on issues they face, offering fresh ideas and concepts to decision makers and designing and offering workshops on timely topics for landowners, adding yet other dimensions to the term advocate. He serves on the Education Committee of Minnesota Forestry Association and collaborates with many individuals and agencies including American Forest Foundation where he actively promotes the use of MyLandPlan to woodland owners.

The event was organized by Webster Girl Scout Melissa Leef, who was working to earn her Silver Award.â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Peggy Helland of Webster was chosen to be inducted into the University of Wisconsin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; River Falls Athletic Hall of Fame.â&#x20AC;&#x201C;The new owner of Indian Creek Orchard east of Lewis was Brad Burling.

Olivia Kopecky expertise to help you learn during your schedule and at your speed. This season is especially a great time of year because enrollment is quickly approaching for all current and new members. Now is the time when 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers are given the opportunity to say what they want to focus on this year and then plan out how they will go about reaching their goals. The best part is, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up for a project area, you can still participate and connect yourself to something new through the 4-H clover. Burnett County 4-H would be happy to have you on board to learn with us.

Prepared at the park

by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer SIREN - Burnett County Emergency Management Director Rhonda Reynolds publicly thanked everyone involved in the Disaster Preppers Fair held Saturday, Sept. 7, in Crooked Lake Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all walked away on Saturday feeling like there was a lot of interest,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds told public safety committee members at a recent meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just may do it again.â&#x20AC;? In an effort to persuade local citizens to be prepared for emergencies due to power outages or weather events, Reynolds and various organizations set up a number of displays and informational booths, covering topics rangLQJIURPĂ&#x20AC;UVWDLGGRFXPHQWVWRUDJHIRRGVDIHW\DQGVXU-

vival skills. In a previous meeting, Reynolds had explained to county board members that one of the biggest challenges to providing public safety and restoring normalcy after any type of disastrous event is that emergency services personnel are inundated with questions and phone calls. ,ISHRSOHDUHSUHSDUHGWREHVHOIVXIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQWIRUDIHZGD\V workers can clear roads, restore power, tend to the injured, and do whatever else needs to be done much more HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQWO\ The local event coincided with the declaration of September as National Preparedness Month, which includes a campaign by Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Management division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individuals and families need to be self-reliant and prepared for days without utilities such as electric-

ity, water and phone service, availability of local businesses such as gas stations and supermarkets, and other needed supplies,â&#x20AC;? said Wisconsin Emergency Management Administrator Brian Satula. The state campaign encourages people to take three important steps: make a plan, get a supply kit and be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can be a hero to your family, friends and neighbors by preparing for emergencies,â&#x20AC;? said Maj. Gen. Don Dunbar, Commander of the Wisconsin National Guard. More information can be found at readywisconsin. wi.gov.

Rubesch second in 100-mile race RAPID CITY, S.D. - Former Spooner UHVLGHQW&KULV5XEHVFKĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGVHFRQGLQ the annual Lean House 100-mile ultramarathon held Aug. 24 in the southern Black Hills of South Dakota. The race is run on the Mickelson Trail from Hot Springs, through Custer, past Crazy Horse Monument to Hill City and then back to Hot Springs and includes a total climb of over 3,500 feet. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race was run with temperatures in the high 90s. The race began at 6 a.m., and Rubesch Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHGDWDSSUR[LPDWHO\SPFRPpleting the 100 miles in 16 hours, 40 minXWHVVHFRQGV7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWSODFHĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHU was Jordan Hanlon of St. Paul, Minn. Rubesch was more than three hours ahead of WKHWKLUGSODFHĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHU+LVWLPHZDVWKH seventh fastest in the history of the event. Since ultramarathon courses are sometimes not as well-marked as those of shorter races, and because of the long distance, the often large gaps between competitors and running in darkness, it is common in ultramarathons of this length to allow noncompeting pacers to accompany the runners on some portions of the course. In the Lean Horse 100, Rubesch was paced over some segments of the last half of the course and during the night by his sister, Haily Rubesch, his cousin, Max

Rubesch and his former college teammate, Joe Stromsness. An ultramarthon is any event longer than a traditional marathon (26.2 miles). While marathons are typically run on roads, ultramarathons are usually run on WUDLOV7KLVZDV5XEHVFK¡VĂ&#x20AC;UVWPLOH race. He competed in cross country and track in high school and college, competing in distances from 1,500 meters to 10,000 meters, and in recent years has participated in half-marathons, marathons, 50K (31 miles), 50-mile, and 100K (62 miles) races. - with submitted information 5,*+7&KULV5XEHVFKIRUPHUO\RI6SRRQHU SODFHGVHFRQGLQWKH/HDQ+RUVHPLOHXO WUDPDUDWKRQKHOGUHFHQWO\LQWKH%ODFN+LOOVRI 6RXWK'DNRWD3KRWRVVXEPLWWHG

Stephen Smith, DShell Lake, were joined Wednesday, Sept. 11, by members of AARP to advocate for a bill to restore consumer protections for Wisconsin residents at risk of losing their landline phone service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important phone call I ever got came from my son on 9/11. He was stationed on the USS Sacramento as part

of the USS Carl Vinson battle group in the Persian Gulf area. He told me he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk long because they were going dark and that we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear from him, but they were safe,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a phone call that important, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad I had a reliable connection.â&#x20AC;? In 2011, the Legislature repealed a consumer protection by sunsetting the â&#x20AC;&#x153;provider of last resort provisions.â&#x20AC;? Lawmakers were assured federal rules would protect Wisconsin consumers. Now efforts are under way to change the federal rules.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the beautiful hills along the Mississippi River where I live, the cellular coverage is spotty at best,â&#x20AC;? said Vinehout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This bill would assure all residents would always have someone to provide them with basic service no matter where they live.â&#x20AC;? The residents of Fire Island, N.Y., are already suffering from losing their landline service. On July 5, the Washington Post reported, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without phone lines, consumers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the option of DSL Internet. Gone are faxes. Heart monitors that connect over phone lines to hospitals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

work over wireless, either. And small businesses canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t process credit cards or operate cash machines without buying entirely new payment systems.â&#x20AC;? AARP state issues advocacy director Helen Marks Dicks, said the elderly and people in rural areas would be most affected by disappearing phone lines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This situation is unacceptable,â&#x20AC;? said Dicks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Landlines are a lifeline to the outside world for many folks. We need to put â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;provider of last resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; language back into state law.â&#x20AC;? ÂłIURPWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHVRI6HQ Vinehout and Rep. Smith

Judge rules Telemark Lodge abandoned, speeds foreclosures

by Mike Simonson Wisconsin Public Radio &$%/($%D\Ă&#x20AC;HOG&RXQW\MXGJHKDV ruled that the historic Telemark Lodge and Resort has been abandoned and that foreclosure should be sped up. As dire as that may sound, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually good news for Telemark. The lodge, built in 1972, is the starting point for the American Birkebeiner, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest cross-country ski race. Telemark closed in March. Since then, the foreclosure been going through civil FRXUWLQ%D\Ă&#x20AC;HOG&RXQW\,QWHVWLPRQ\DW a hearing two weeks ago, it was revealed Telemark hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had electricity or water since March, its grass hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been cut, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evidence of looting in the 150room lodge. Mortgage holder Dick Short says the abandonment ruling means they can clear the title of lien holders and have a better chance to sell it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to keep Telemark alive. Hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll put a deal

together with people who are very credit-worthy and JLYHFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHWRWKHFRPmunity,â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said. â&#x20AC;?Once the FRPPXQLW\ Ă&#x20AC;QGV RXW WKDW there are people who might be interested and are good people, support for Telemark will come back.â&#x20AC;? Regardless if Telemark is sold, Short and the American Birkebeiner have reached an agreement to use

the 900 acres of property and trails for next Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. Birkie Foundation Director Ben Popp says that deal gives them stability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us to have the start of the race is vital for us. That we were able to come to an agreement was very important for us and all the participants and the skiers.â&#x20AC;? Short expects to have the title clear and free in mid-October for sale, but Popp says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not planning on it being open in time for the Birkie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not real hopeful that the facility itself will be open,â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said, â&#x20AC;?however, if it is open then we would certainly work to utilize that space as well.â&#x20AC;? Around 13,000 people participate in the American Birkebeiner. The race has been an annual event since 1973.

Luther Point breaks ground on new building GRANTSBURG - Luther Point Bible Camp, Grantsburg, broke ground Wednesday, Sept. 11, on the construction of a new multipurpose/storm shelter building. The camp entertained bids on the project through Aug. 22. The camp board of directors met on Wednesday, Aug. 28, and gave the approval to move ahead with construction. Projected completion date is May 1, 2014, just in time for the summer season to begin. The building will serve the ministry in a variety of ways. It is designed to be utilized on a year-round basis. During the summer months it will provide protection for campers, staff and guests during inclement weather. It will also serve as a rainy-day activity space. Camper registration will take place in this facility, and a summer staff meeting area will be provided. Male and female shower and bathroom facilities will be in the building, and a commercial kitchen will be completed in the next two years. During the fall, winter and spring, the building will provide large-group gathering space for retreat groups and day groups who meet at the camp. The camp

Calvary Covenant, New Hope Lutheran talk of joining by Wayne Anderson Special to the Leader GRANTSBURG - Calvary Evangelical Covenant Church and New Hope Lutheran Church are in formal discussions about joining their congregations in several possible capacities, which has brought a mixed response of hope for economic relief, merger caution, fear and trembling and Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize as a church, since I got here in 2006, that we want to be a faithful and fruitful church for God,â&#x20AC;? said Calvaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pastor Scott Sagle after the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterly business meeting last Sunday, Sept. 15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We agreed we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue to do things the same. Five years from now we may not be here. &DOYDU\RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVVDLGWKHLUFRQJUHJDWLRQVSOLWRYHUWKH doctrine of Calvinism about seven years ago. And this split left about 50 of its members attending and struggling to pay 100 percent of the bills. &KXUFKRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVVDLGWKHSUHVHQWDQGIXWXUHKDUGHFRnomic realities must be considered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re praying, what does God want us to do?â&#x20AC;? said Sagle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we close the doors of our church?â&#x20AC;? But before putting a for-sale sign on Hwy. 70 where the church is located, other options, like partnership with another church, are formally being discussed. ´:HQHHGWRĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWZKDWZHQHHGWRGRWREHFRPH healthy, be honest with who we are and what resources we have,â&#x20AC;? said Sagle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reality is we are going to have to partner with other churches.â&#x20AC;? Reaction from the members of Calvary to joining with another church is both hopeful and mixed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine now joining, altogether, but I am sure open to it for different ideas,â&#x20AC;? said Dale Peterson, a member at Calvary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a need our church has.â&#x20AC;? This need for growth is clear for some and the possibility of failure is fearful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. I am for it 100 percent!â&#x20AC;? said Paul Norenberg, who is on the discussion committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do something. If something happened and this

church went down â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? The thought of Calvary going â&#x20AC;&#x153;downâ&#x20AC;? was a strong motivator to reach out to New Hope Lutheran about partnering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pastor and board are talking about partnership right now,â&#x20AC;? said Sagle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it leads to merger, then praise God.â&#x20AC;? But if God is directing a merger, his people in both congregations have expressed concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My sense is that the initial response of our congregation (on merging) was fear and trembling,â&#x20AC;? said Sagle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take this one step at a time.â&#x20AC;? The congregation at New Hope is growing, with membership over 200. Their lease on the Harmon building on Hwy. 70 is up next year. And their future location is pressing on their mind. Still, the leaders at New Hope agree with slowing the speed and again looking at their direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Merger was discussed at the beginning,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Emory Johnson, pastor of New Hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off the table for now. We think a good place to start is with joint projects and ministry together.â&#x20AC;? This type of partnering could be joining congregations for a Thanksgiving or Lenten service, the traditional hunters supper or sharing Sunday services to see how things go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Partnership could be a youth ministry program that we operate together,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the outcome will be. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at all the different possibilities.â&#x20AC;? Call the discussions partnering, joining or merging. One clear direction is expressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe God has directed everything at New Hope (and Calvary) and he will continue,â&#x20AC;? said Terry Swenson, of New Hope, who has been in the formal discussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we will stay in discussions and if God leads us down this path, great, or if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, so be it.â&#x20AC;? Because, in the end, said Calvaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deb Peterson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all serve the same God.â&#x20AC;?
