Fitzgerald had already tendered her resignation, effective at the end of this calendar year, which was understood by all parties to be a retirement from county government. A search for her replacement, being conducted by the Northwest Regional Planning Commission, has been under way for months.

Taylor complimented Fitzgerald, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Candace did a tremendous job here in Burnett County. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald has been serving as the project manager on the widely criticized multimilliondollar communications project. For her part, Fitzgerald had argued recently that the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consultant, G.J. Therkelsen, was

the project manager and she was merely the point of contact for the consultant. Other supervisors counterargued that the contract with the consultant clearly names the administrator as project manager. Either way, tensions have been mounting over the delayed timing and unknown status of key project elements, and the newest twist has to do with orchestration of a funding mechanism and proper payment to vendors. Just last month, Fitzgerald reassured supervisors that all their concern was unwarranted. Fitzgeraldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure leaves a leadership post open at a critical time for the project. Taylor said that emergency management director Rhonda Reynolds would be serving as point person going forward.

by Gregg Westigard Leader staff writer BURNETT/POLK/WASHBURN COUNTIES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The annual round of school district annual meetings starts in early September. This is the time when voters can question their school boards and administrators about their school districts. In addition, they can review the proposed 2013-14 budgets DQGWD[OHYLHVDQGGHWHUPLQHWKH salaries of school board members. The districts prepare very complete presentations about school Ă&#x20AC;QDQFHJRDOVDQGDFKLHYHPHQWV Residents can learn about reserve fund balances, enrollment trends, and the direction their district is going. And they can have a dialogue with their school board

members. The meetings for Burnett and Polk County residents start Monday, Sept. 9, with the Osceola and Clayton meetings. The meetings continue through the end of October. Five of the school districts serving Burnett and Polk counties will hold their annual meetings Monday, Sept. 23. That includes the districts of Luck, Frederic, Shell Lake, Spooner and Turtle Lake. The Amery meeting is Monday, Sept. 16, Websterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is Monday, Sept. 30, and the St. &URL[ )DOOV PHHWLQJ LV 0RQGD\ Oct. 21.

The meetings are usually held in September or October to allow the school boards to get the most current budget information on enrollment and state aid.

The movement enjoyed a revival amid the economic turmoil RIVLQĂ DWLRQDQGRQJRLQJ&ROG:DU tensions. More recently, the stock market collapse, the housing bubble, and terrorist activity have brought new waves and forms of prepping. Prepping is often associated with the survivalism movement made of individuals and groups who actively prepare for emergencies, including possible disruptions in social or political order on scales from local to global.

Most preppers are far more practical and realistic than whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shown on television. They would argue that prepping merely represents a philosophical difference in how they spend their money. Preppers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tend to invest in technology or fads, but instead buy useful things that will endure. Many of them also make a point to learn techniques that will help them rely less on infrastructure and perform basic daily functions without the XVHRIHOHFWULFLW\VXFKDVĂ&#x20AC;UVWDLGIDUPLQJDQGVHOIGHIHQVH$QDGGHGEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WLV that preparedness not only helps a person weather a storm, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great ZD\WRZHDWKHUĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOLQVWDELOLW\LQWKH marketplace.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the Disaster Preppers Fair is all about. The American Red Cross recommends that every household have the food, water, medications and basic supplies it needs to survive three days without power. Local emergency services personnel will be on hand Saturday to provide coaching on what to buy, where to get it, and how to store it to prepare for a weather event or disaster.

After baby deer raid, DNR proposes rules change on wild animals in custody by Rich Kremer Wisconsin Public Radio MADISON - The Department of Natural Resources is proposing a new approach to how it handles wild animals captured by people. The changes are in response to public outrage after a whitetailed fawn nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gigglesâ&#x20AC;? at an animal rescue was killed by agents of the Department of Natural Resources. 6RFLDO PHGLD H[SORGHG HDUOLHU WKLV month after armed DNR agents and sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies killed a fawn that had been brought from Illinois to an animal shelter in Kenosha. Some accused the DNR of being callous and using unnecessary force, but DNR Lands Division Administrator Kurt Thiede says under current state law, they had no other options. Since the fawn was in a Chronic Wasting Disease Zone, it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be set free and it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be rehabilitated. Thiede says the DNR is proposing new policies that give the agency more leeway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best way to look at some

of these policy changes,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;... is basically giving the same options that we have available outside the CWD zones to the CWD zone.â&#x20AC;? The changes would allow the DNR to set a healthy deer free anywhere in the state or bring it to a licensed rehabilitator if it is injured. Also, Thiede says, the DNR will now only be allowed to kill a captured deer if it is obviously sick and D GDQJHU WR RWKHU ZLOGOLIH $ Ă&#x20AC;QDO SURvision that needs legislative approval would allow a person to keep a deer if they prove itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease free, have a proper pen and pay hundreds of dollars in fees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying - under those instances - that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to keep it, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfair to say that this opens up the door for anyone that wants to keep an animal to just simply do it,â&#x20AC;?

PSC seeks input on broadband Internet access Given the importance of information and communication to our economy and in our daily lives, improving technology is critical to ensuring accessibility and connectivity to the Internet.

Rep. Milroy: Shady giveaway a slap in the face to Wisconsin outdoor enthusiasts Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play dirty politics with hunting and fishing heritage MADISON - On Thursday morning, Aug. 29, the sporting heritage committee met to decide whether to give a $500,000 grant to a Republican political lobbying group under the guise of supporting Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud outdoor heritage. New information surfaced this week in news investigations that show the group to receive the grant, United Sportsmen of Wisconsin, in reality has â&#x20AC;&#x153;no history of doing the kind of training that would qualify for the grant,â&#x20AC;? according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Furthermore, the group was proven to be closely linked to Republican campaigns and

right-wing, conservative political groups, including Americans for Prosperity-WI. Rep. Nick Milroy, D-South Range, a member of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee and an avid outdoorsman, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an outrageous abuse RIWD[SD\HUGROODUVDQGWUXVW,WPXVWEH halted immediately.â&#x20AC;? 7KHEXGJHWGUDIWLQJĂ&#x20AC;OHVKRZVWKDWWKH language was put in the budget by departing Republican Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder whose former chief of staff is involved with the group in line to receive the grant. The language was crafted in a way that prohibited highly regarded conservation groups that have VROLGWUDLQLQJH[SHULHQFHIURPEHLQJTXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HGIRUWKHJUDQW â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this grant is approved, it will actuDOO\WDNHPRQH\DZD\IURPKXQWHUVĂ&#x20AC;VKers and other outdoor enthusiasts and

funnel it to a shady lobbying group that advocates for Republicans in elections,â&#x20AC;? said Milroy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a slap in the face to our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hunters and anglers to take the largest natural resources grant in the budget and abuse it to play politics and hand out partisan favors.â&#x20AC;? Both the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau and Legislative Council advised Milroy that the committee does have the option of denying this application. Given the new and startling revelations, Milroy and his Democratic colleagues on the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources called on the sporting heritage committee to immediately take action to stop this abuse of power, reopen the process and award the grant in a way that respects :LVFRQVLQ WD[SD\HUV DQG RXU VWDWH¡V proud outdoors heritage. The grant is set at $500,000 in this

budget and adds an additional $450,000 every budget going forward. According to news reports, a DNR spokesperson indicated the grant would continue to be paid in perpetuity. It would potentially VSHQGPLOOLRQVLQWD[SD\HUPRQH\ZLWKout a competitive and transparent bidding process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all want to see more people take XSKXQWLQJĂ&#x20AC;VKLQJDQGWUDSSLQJLQ:LVconsin, and it is vital to promote this to our youth,â&#x20AC;? Milroy added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, we must have a competitive, fair and RSHQSURFHVVZKHQWD[SD\HUGROODUVDUH LQYROYHG $V HOHFWHG RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOV ZH PXVW make sure the state restarts this process with thorough, public review and feedback.â&#x20AC;?

Your Right to Know: GOP pressed on redistricting by Bill Lueders Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism STATEWIDE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A remarkable advocacy campaign is happening in Wisconsin involving media outlets, nonprofit groups and engaged citizens. They want to change â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or at least discuss â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how the state redraws voter boundaries. Two mostly Democrat-backed bills, AB 185 and SB 163, would strip this task from %LOO/XHGHUV politicians and give it to the Legislative Reference Bureau, a nonpartisan state service agency. This is similar to how redistricting is done in Iowa. Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last redistricting, after the 2010 Census, was done in secret and cost WD[SD\HUV PRUH WKDQ  PLOOLRQ 5XOLQJ Republicans strategically carved districts WR PD[LPL]H WKHLU HOHFWRUDO SURVSHFWV much as Democrats would have done had they been able. Consider, in the fall 2012 elections, 5HSXEOLFDQVZRQĂ&#x20AC;YHRIWKHVWDWH¡VHLJKW FRQJUHVVLRQDO VHDWV VL[ RI  FRQWHVWHG VWDWH6HQDWHUDFHVDQGRIFRQWHVWHG Assembly seats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; despite getting fewer

votes statewide than Democrats in all three categories. This system for letting politicians pick their voters, rather than the other way around, has long been opposed by Common Cause in Wisconsin, the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Their cause got a boost in mid-August with the publication of editorials in papers including the Wisconsin State Journal, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Green Bay Press-Gazette, Appleton PostCrescent, Beloit Daily News, La Crosse Tribune, Chippewa Herald, Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune, Oshkosh Northwestern and Janesville Gazette. The idea was hatched by Scott Milfred and David Haynes, the editorial page editors of, respectively, the Wisconsin State Journal and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, along with Neil Heinen, editorial director of WISC-TV in Madison, which aired an editorial on the topic. Milfred says the trio considered this an important issue that â&#x20AC;&#x153;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like it was going anywhere.â&#x20AC;? So they appealed to editorial boards across the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought more voices saying the same thing at the same time would be more likely to prompt action.â&#x20AC;? The editorials called on state Sen. Mary Lazich, R-New Berlin, and Rep. Tyler August, R-Lake Geneva, who chair the

committees where the redistricting bills languish, to allow public hearings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you and your Republican leaders afraid of?â&#x20AC;? chided the Janesville Gazette. The bills are similar to ones that went nowhere in the past including when Democrats controlled state government. GOP lawmakers including Lazich think the current bills should go nowhere too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Granting redistricting power to an unelected, appointed board would do little to remove the redistricting process from the political realm,â&#x20AC;? wrote Lazich in a column run by the State Journal and Journal Sentinel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather, it would merely move the political maneuverings to an unaccountable board, beyond the reach of the electorate.â&#x20AC;? In other words, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like what the party in power does to make it harder to vote its members out, all you have to do is vote them out. The response from State Journal readers helped answer the Janesville Gazetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question. All 13 letters that ran the following Sunday sided with the paper and against Lazich, with some noting the irony of Lazich using the banner of democracy to deny a public hearing. Milfred says preference is given to â&#x20AC;&#x153;publishing reader views that disagree with our editorial boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positions,â&#x20AC;? but, in this case, not a single such letter was re-

ceived. In fact, the paper got more letters supporting its position than it had space to run. Several editorials urged citizens to FRQWDFWWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHVRI/D]LFKDQG$XJXVW EXWQHLWKHURIĂ&#x20AC;FHZRXOGVD\ZKDWVRUWRI response it received. An aide to August VDLGWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHRQO\WUDFNVFRQVWLWXHQWFRQtacts, then failed to provide information on these. Sen. Lazich, through staff, did not respond to requests for an interview or to say whether the reaction made her reconsider. But Milfred is optimistic that a hearing will be held, â&#x20AC;&#x153;With that many voices across the state supporting a hearing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be surprised if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just blow that off.â&#x20AC;?

Archers can take up the deer hunt beginning Saturday, Sept. 14 MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cooler evening temperatures are a signal to many bow hunters that the Saturday, Sept. 14 opening of Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archery deer season is just around the corner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For those of us who love to bow hunt, LW¡V DQ H[FLWLQJ WLPH RI WKH \HDU DQG DQticipation runs high,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Wallenfang, the big game ecologist for the state Department of Natural Resources and an ardent, enthusiastic bow hunter. With good conditions, hunters can hope to see plenty of deer in most areas of the state, said Wallenfang. Archers set an all-time record buck harvest last year, he said, including yet another new state record trophy deer shot in Fond du Lac County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In general, during the past couple of years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had conservative antlerless quotas in the north to allow herds to in-

crease,â&#x20AC;? Wallenfang said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a result, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hearing from a lot of folks that they are seeing more deer across the north than in recent years. In addition, we continue to have good numbers of deer in most farmland areas.â&#x20AC;? Many archers in the chronic wasting disease management zone will be pleased to see the absence of a four-day October gun hunt, which has been the norm in recent years. The only interruption of the archery season will be a two-day statewide youth hunt Oct. 5-6. Hunters understand, Wallenfang said, that all properties are not created equal when it comes to deer abundance. Deer change their movements in response to weather, food availability and other factors and are not evenly distributed through a deer-management unit. Aerial surveys often show a large number of

deer in one square mile of habitat with very few deer in one of the neighboring square-mile blocks. As always, there is no substitute for scouting and preseason contacts with neighboring land owners, Wallenfang said. The 2013 archery deer season runs from Saturday, Sept. 14, through Thursday, Nov. 21 and then from Saturday, Nov. 23, the start of the gun season, through Jan. 5, a Sunday. As always, there is no deer hunting of any kind on the Friday preceding the gun deer hunt. This single day separates the early and late bow deer seasons. Archery deer hunters will again be allowed to hunt during the regular nineday gun deer hunt in November and for WKHVHFRQG\HDUZLOOEHDEOHWRĂ&#x20AC;OODJXQ license deer tag with a bow or crossbow

There were 263,852 licensed archery hunters in 2012 who harvested a total RI  GHHU XS IURP  DUFKHU\ hunters who harvested 90,200 deer in 2011. Wallenfang urged bow hunters to be especially careful when climbing into and out of deer stands.

Youth waterfowl and regular-season Canada goose hunts about to open MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The popular two-day youth waterfowl hunt takes place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14-15 this year, followed by the regular Canada goose KXQWLQJVHDVRQLQWKH([WHULRUDQG+RULcon zones, which kicks off Monday, Sept. 16.

<RXWKZDWHUIRZOKXQW This special hunt offers youth ages 1215, â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or those 10 and over hunting under the mentored hunting law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the opportunity to learn skills from an adult without some of the pressure that might be encountered during the regular season.

Normal season bag limits apply. All license and stamp requirements are waived, although participants still need to be HIP registered (free of charge) and if they wish to hunt geese during this time they would need to possess an early-season goose permit. Licensed adults may also hunt geese since the early goose season is open during these dates. While many youths enjoy this special hunt alongside a parent or relative, each year about one in seven hunters is able to participate solely because a family friend, neighbor or volunteer mentor was generous enough to take the time to teach them

PHASEOUT OF THE POLK COUNTY HOME-CARE PROGRAM TO THE HONORABLE SUPERVISORS OF THE COUNTY BOARD OF THE COUNTY OF POLK: Ladies and Gentlemen: WHEREAS, Polk County has long recognized the value of assisting residents in obtaining health-care services that enable them to remain in their own homes; and WHEREAS, Polk County has directly provided and subsidized such homecare services to residents for over 45 years; and WHEREAS, at the time the program was created there were few if any alternatives to a publicly funded home-care program; and WHEREAS, in the past several years a number of outside providers have entered into the home-care field resulting in a duplication of and often direct competition with services provided by the county program; and WHEREAS, other counties within the region have made the determination that outside providers can adequately meet the need for such services and have ended their publicly funded home-care programs; and WHEREAS, based on evidence obtained by the Polk County Board of Health and Polk County Administration it appears that these outside providers will meet all or nearly all of the demand for home-care services in Polk County; and WHEREAS, for economic reasons it has become increasingly necessary to reduce expenditures for nonmandated programs to fund increased costs for required and high-priority programs; and WHEREAS, other cost increases including increases in debt service, energy, health care and highway materials will require reductions in other programs; and WHEREAS, the Polk County home-care program is a nonmandated program; and WHEREAS, it is possible to both assure current home-care clients that their services will continue uninterruptedly should Polk County phaseout this program; and WHEREAS, the County is able to monitor the future need for home-care services and may intervene again in this market should a role for the county be determined; and WHEREAS, a careful transition from public to private provision of home-care services in Polk County is both possible and warranted. THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Polk County Board of Supervisors directs the Polk County Administrator to phase out the Polk County home-care program assuring that no current client of this program may be denied services as a result of this change, making monthly reports to the Polk County Board of Supervisors. RESOLVED FURTHER, that the Polk County Board of Supervisors directs the Polk County Administrator to establish a method of tracking home-care placements in Polk County to determine whether there is an unmet need for such services and to report the same to the Polk County Board of Supervisors on or before September 1 of each year beginning in 2014.

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
