Extra Points

â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ CUSHING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local runner Tammi Braund, of Cushing, has continued to push herself over the past year in local, regional marathons, and other races. Back in June, Braund ran a personal best at Grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marathon in Duluth, Minn., with a time of 2-hours, 56 minutes. She took 289th place among more than 6,000 other runners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought I would run a marathon in under three 7DPPL%UDXQG hours, let alone two of them,â&#x20AC;? Braund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hoping to even better that time with more training.â&#x20AC;? She then followed up with what she considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;crazy,â&#x20AC;? completing three marathons in just three weeks. Braund finished the Birkie Trail Marathon in Hayward and won that race.

Regional meetings in Wisconsin focus on best practices for dementia care Shamane Mills | :351HZV STATEWIDE - The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is holding a series of meetings for local communities to discuss the best practices for treating dementia. The meetings will specifically focus on the guiding principles for dementia care that the DHS recently released as part of Dementia-Capable Wisconsin, an initiative that aims to improve care throughout the state. The principles are not only designed for those with the disease and their caregivers, but also the community at large. At one meeting in Madison last week, Portage Mayor Bill Tierney talked about â&#x20AC;&#x153;memory cafes,â&#x20AC;? places where those with dementia can socialize. ´7KDWZDVRXUĂ&#x20AC;UVWUHDOELJVWHSLQ3RUtage,â&#x20AC;? said Tierney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every fourth Wednesday, we hold a memory cafe at the Portage Library and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been phenomenally suc-

Going home He exhaled for a good 10 seconds, letting all that accumulated tension go. He always got a little panicky after a couple of days in the Cities. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that he was afraid for his safety. More like somebody was cutting off his air supply, and he just needed to breathe free again. That big breath usually came when he passed the Forest Lake exit headed north. He could feel the tug of home then, and every bit of sinew and bone was pulled in that direction. He lived the country life by choice, not because he had to. Raised in what he considered a reasonably happy home on 10 acres a few miles from town, he knew he had missed out on some things that only a city can offer. And when he Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHGIRXU\HDUVRIFROOHJHIRUDWLPH he looked for work in the city, but the search only told him what he already knew: that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been hardwired for rural life. All the old, familiar places were calling him home. When he was offered a teaching job at the local school, he jumped at the chance to leave the city. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d realized for a long time that he needed open space, stars at night and air that smells of the things he associated with home. This time of year, the air had a hint of the smell of rotting leaves, not a bad smell by any means, and one that took him back to falls past. Fall was his outdoor season, a time to get annual chores done, and once everything was ready for winter, the hunt. His hunt for a deer was not a showy kind of thing; he usually went out alone and leaned quietly against a tree on the

7KHYLHZ IURPKHUH Steve Pearson high bank above the creek. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d let many bucks go over the years, some trophy size, choosing instead to shoot a doe knowing that was a better contribution to controlling the herd. The venison fed him through the winter and beyond, and he rarely had the need or desire for store-bought meat. Fishing was a year-round passion, and that brought food to the table as well. As he turned over memories of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hunt in his head, he recalled the column by a local politician, a new guy, that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen in the paper a few weeks earlier. What was the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name - Jarsomething or other? The guy was on a rant of some kind, something about Democrats hating hunters. Loose talk. His dad, a lifelong Democrat and hunter, had told him that Republicans had tried this one before as a way to divide people here in the north. Turns out this new guy was the same one who shut down all the local control of lakeshore and turned it over to the state. Wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it Republicans who were always talking about local control? Oh, well, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d put that guy out of his mind and focus on the road home instead. He could see through people like that, and he suspected this reckless fellow would be a one-term wonder anyway, though political prognostication wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really his game. Politics could get kind of wearisome - all this presi-

dential stuff more than a year ahead of the election made him want to turn off the TV and the radio sometimes. And that was easy to do. In fact, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take a good walk in the woods over the TV any time of day. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where he found his peace. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never felt that kind of peace in the big city. All that chicken-scratching he saw every time he was forced by circumstances to spend some time there looked like a lot of meaningless activity after a while, though he had to admit to a fondness for the occasional trip to Target Field for a Twins game. He knew living there would have meant more money and more things. But things ZHUHQ¡WZKDWGHĂ&#x20AC;QHGKLP$WOHDVW thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what he usually told himself, rePHPEHULQJWKHIRRWĂ&#x20AC;VKLQJERDWZLWK a 50-horse motor heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been coveting just a few weeks earlier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t succumb,â&#x20AC;? he said out loud, contenting himself with his 12-foot Alumacraft for now. And then there were those little screens. People in the Cities were obsessed with those things, walking in and out of buildings without taking their eyes off them. It was a wonder they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all bumping into each other all the time. What was it they were looking at, he wondered, that was so much more interesting than the world around them? Oh, sure, he had friends with smartphones, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an obsession here like it was there. Except that those friends were always showing him SKRWRVRIWKLVĂ&#x20AC;VKRUWKDWEDE\WKRXJK usually the photo was so small, you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really make out what you were looking at anyway. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take face-to-face contact with

real people, though he was quite happy spending time alone, too. He liked knowing his neighbors, something his old college roommates who lived in the city found curious. Most of them had no idea who lived next door. He liked helping those neighbors when they needed it, and he felt good knowing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be there for him in a pinch, too. And he especially liked knowing the local merchants and enjoyed being recognized and called by name when he was in town shopping. He knew he could pay less if he made the drive to the big-box stores, but somehow something would be lost in the process, VRPHWKLQJWKDW¡VKDUGHUWRĂ&#x20AC;QGZKHQ things get too big. It felt good to review his life from time to time. Kind of like his own little referendum on the choices heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made. It was a good reminder that it had been his decision, this way of life. Still, he reminded himself that he was young and could change course at any time, though he really couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see himself doing anything too radical. A trip to the Cities helped him clear his head that way. And the best part was always crossing the St. Croix River; it seemed that everything got just a little prettier and a whole lot more interesting every time he made that crossing headed east. It feels like home, he thought, checking the ribbon of blue in his rearview mirror as he climbed out of the river valley.

ost who have an interest in fur trade people are aware that a majority of traders and voyageur canoemen were of either French Canadian or Scottish ancestry. Eventually a large Indian/white mix called Metis were also to be found across huge chunks of the North American fur trading areas. There were, however, exceptions to the French/Scottish/Metis dominance. One notable story is that of a black man who was referred to in the original diary of Folle Avoine trader Michel Curot in 1803. Curot doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t list his name, but evidence suggests that this was probably Pierre Bonga, an employee of North West Company trader John Sayer, who was Curotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rival that year. Another notable exception was a Swede named Jacob Fahlstrom, considHUHGWREHWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWSHUPDQHQW6ZHGLVK person in this region. While he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live at Forts Folle Avoine, his story eventually dovetails with Bongaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and is a prime example of how cross-cultural ties were forged in the fur trade. /LNHPDQ\KLVWRULFDOĂ&#x20AC;JXUHV)DKOstromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biography requires lots of sifting to separate fact from the numerous legends about him. His story blends into the mists of history, but the other part of that is he probably liked it that way. Because in coming to the wilds of North America, he found life within the native cultures better suited to his spirit than those of the more â&#x20AC;&#x153;civilizedâ&#x20AC;? world heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come from. The fur trade often had that effect on people. Fahlstrom left Sweden as a teen in 1811, made his way to Scotland and signed on as a cabin boy on a Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Company ship bound for their fur trade territories in what is now Canada. Working for the Company out of York Factory on Hudson Bay, his duties brought him into frequent contact

Woodswhimsy the gnome with the Cree-Ojibwe Indians of the region. Via this contact, he absorbed the Cree-Ojibwe language plus many woodland life skills. He became known by the Indians as Oza-windib, Yellow Head or blond hair, and as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Swede Indianâ&#x20AC;? by the whites. Besides his origiQDO6ZHGLVKKHEHFDPHĂ XHQWLQ&UHH Ojibwe, Dakota, French and English, the primary languages used in fur trade society. By 1816, he was working as a canoeman with the North West Company, and drifted south into what is now northern Minnesota, where he was connected to various trading posts. In 1823, probably at Fond du Lac near Duluth, he married Marguerite, the AfricanOjibwe daughter of Pierre Bonga, who as mentioned was likely the black man referred to as a Forts Folle Avoine resident in 1803. Over the years, the family grew to include nine children, and their travels stretched from northern Minnesota to what is now the Twin Cities area. Fahlstromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zest for the woods life was described by a contemporary: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No French voyageur, keen for adventure, could surpass him in restless roving and none of the Sioux or Ojibwe were more at home in the wilderness.â&#x20AC;? This is well illustrated by one of his jobs while living near Fort Snelling. He carried the mail between there, Prairie du Chien, St. Croix Falls and to Superior. Carried the mail? Yep, mostly by canoe! Over the years, he also served stints as a blacksmith, woodcutter, interpreter and, of course, fur trader. And explorer.

In the 1830s, he probably was the FKLHIJXLGHIRUWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDO86H[SHGLtion of Henry Schoolcraft to determine the exact source of the Mississippi River. Interestingly, Schoolcraftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journals indicate that an individual known as Oza-windib, Yellow Head, Fahlstromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indian name, was his â&#x20AC;&#x153;nativeâ&#x20AC;? guide. Though Schoolcraft doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\UHIHUWRKLPDVD´ZKLWHÂľ man, some historians speculate this was indeed Fahlstrom, as no Ojibwe with that name appears in any trade or treaty records. And perhaps Fahlstrom/Ozawindib was so attuned to native ways, Schoolcraft just assumed he was native. While he adapted many Indian traits, Fahlstrom retained his Christian views and became a Methodist missionary during the 1840s, and his contacts included his Ojibwe friends as well as the lumberjacks now streaming into the region, soon joined by settlers. This garnered him yet another name, Father Jacob. He eventually founded what is now the Town of Afton, east of St. Paul, near the St. Croix. There he died in 1859.

His wife, Marguerite, lived until 1880. There is a small monument to his memory in downtown St. Paul erected by a Swedish heritage group in 1948. Fahlstromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is one of those intriguing tales that resonate throughout fur trade history. The numerous examples of the interplay between disparate cultures highlights his story. And, through his African-Ojibwe wife, Marguerite Bonga, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story that even touches on the original Forts Folle Avoine. Forts Folle Avoine Historical Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s museum/gift shop is open Wednesdays - Fridays during the winter. The library is also open Wednesdays.

A busy season for Pack 564 WEBSTER - Cub Scout Pack 564 has been very busy since school started. Labor Day weekend had the Scouts doing cleanup at the Voyager Village Arts and Crafts Fair again this year on Saturday and Sunday. Their service continued on Monday, Labor Day, with helping the Siren Lions clean up after their annual yard sale at Crooked Lake Park. 6KRUWO\DIWHUWKDWWKHĂ&#x20AC;IWKJUDGH:HEHORVKDGDFKDQFHWRH[SHULHQFHFDPSLQJZLWK the Boy Scouts at Camp Tomahawk in Birchwood for the annual Fall Camporee held the following weekend, Sept. 11-13. While there, the Scouts had chances for learning how radio programs work, rock climbing, a high-ropes course or spending part of the day on the shooting range learning everything from bow and arrow to dart guns, along with camping and cooking outside. The next two weeks brought the annual Cub Scouts recruitment night on Thursday, Sept. 17, which swelled the pack numbers with lots of eager boys wanting to become Scouts. With almost 80 boys now part of Pack 564 and covering the whole county, the pack leaders are looking forward to all of the fun ahead this year. Friday, Sept. 18, started the popcorn and wreath sales for the pack, which support them through most of the year. Shortly after that they held the annual parent orientation to welcome everyone into the pack and to introduce the new Scouts to their leaders. 1H[WXSIRUWKH&XE6FRXWVRQ0RQGD\2FWZDVWKHSUHVHQWDWLRQWKHĂ&#x20AC;IWKJUDGH Webelos put on for the American Legion and VFW about the citizenship project they KDGEHHQZRUNLQJRQIRUWKHODVW\HDUV7KH6FRXWVKDGEHHQDVNHGWRKHOSĂ&#x20AC;JXUH RXWKRZPDQ\YHWHUDQVZHUHPLVVLQJWKHLUĂ DJKROGHUVRQWKHLUJUDYHVEXWWKH6FRXWV took it a little bit further. With help from the Veterans Administration, the Webelos documented all of the veterans buried in the county, when the veteran served and if WKH\GLGRUGLGQ¡WKDYHDĂ DJKROGHU7KH6FRXWVFRXQWHGWKHIROORZLQJ2QH6ZHGLVK veteran who served his country before immigrating to America; one British veteran who served her country in WWII; one veteran of the Chinese Water War; 49 from the Civil War; 12 Spanish American veterans; 375 who served in World War I; 793 World War II veterans; 195 from the Korean War; 98 veterans from Vietnam; four from the Persian Gulf War; three veterans from Iraq/Afghanistan; 340 veterans who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a service time listed; 14 Gold Star Mothers; one VFW Auxiliary member; and 17 American Legion Auxiliary members. All told, Burnett County has 1,855 people who were counted, with 1,823 of those being veterans who served a total of 1,866 times, some in more than one war. Although the Cub Scouts worked on the project, it was done for the veterans. The entire project was turned over to the American Legion and VFW posts in the county to help those posts identify every veteran buried in Burnett County. After the presentation, the Scouts and veterans enjoyed cake, coffee and cookies.

The Scouts enjoyed a day at Crex Meadows wildlife refuge on Saturday, Oct. 17, cleaning up trails around the visitors center. The day started out with a couple of short movies showing the history of Crex Meadows and some of the animals that make Crex their home. Then they moved outside to help clean up trails in front and in back of the visitors center, making sure that the trails and walking areas were clean of debris for the upcoming events to be held at Crex. After the work was done, the Scouts enjoyed lunch and a couple of games before calling it a day. Cub Scout Pack 564 has been very busy with service projects this fall. Popcorn and wreath sales wrapped up Sunday, Oct. 25 If you have any questions about Scouting, please contact Bill Lindberg at 715-3497671 or bill.pack564@gmail.com. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; submitted

PBIS day at Luck Elementary Greg Marsten | Staff writer LUCK - In spite of rain and wind, Luck Elementary School students made it a great afternoon on Friday, Oct. 23, as they took part in a variety of fun activities indoors. The events were a combination of celebrating Red Ribbon Week and their PBIS activities, which stands for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. According to Luck Elementary guidance counselor Vern Longhenry, the schoolwide PBIS cel-

The inclement weather kept the activities restricted to the schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two gymnasiums, which each had four different stations or activities set up, from hula-hooping to basketball to testing their vertical leaps and jumping ability. Students had 15 minutes of play at each station.

3&$IURPSDJH in Laketown,â&#x20AC;? he added, pointing to how the photos can spark memories out of the blue for people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been surprising, some pictures bring a comment chain of like 40, 50 comments. All from a pretty simple photo of, say, a person standing on a downtown corner.â&#x20AC;? While almost all sorts of historical organizations have websites, social media pages and the like, the PCA site has become a sort of clearinghouse for Polk Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich history, much of which is on the verge of being lost forever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe all the small towns we had, how many creameries there were, and how lively all the Main Streets were, even in places like McKinley and Alden,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really wondered why all those towns died.â&#x20AC;? His PCA site is not just a place to see old photos of lost or original buildings and scenes, it has become a sort of public celebration of those stories and memories, in a way that even mildly Web-savvy people of all ages can digest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still learning, as well,â&#x20AC;? Hallberg admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I am looking at ways to make it even easier WRQDYLJDWHZLWKVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FSDJHVIRU WRZQVRU 6W&URL[)DOOV+LJK6FKRROFLUFD6SHFLDOSKRWR areas).â&#x20AC;? Hallberg is able to return to Polk County at least once a year, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the PCA site continues to garner even deeper interest, as well as many more photos and the stories, comments and tales that follow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far, so good,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting how people have mailed him photos by every means possible, on top of his own research through the Wisconsin Historical Society, newspaper morgues and family photo collections. Some of that research has a cost beyond Hallbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, and obtaining WHS photos and reprints can be quite costly, on top of his cost of paying return postage on photos sent his way through the mail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really blown up more that I ever thought,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not overwhelmed yet!â&#x20AC;? To keep the PCA project rolling forward, Hallberg has created a Go Fund Me site to solicit general donations of any amount, meant to keep the project active, viable and exciting. It is also to keep the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding more transparent. ´,W¡VDOLWWOHELWVSHQG\VRPHWLPHVHVSHFLDOO\ZRUNLQJZLWKWKH :+6 %XW,Ă&#x20AC;QG thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really worth it,â&#x20AC;? he said. While he is adamant that the site is free and will stay that way, people can help make it even better in several ways, including through small donations to support his WHS research archive collection and the PCA site: gofundme.com/bc5xdf68. Hallberg is encouraging people to not only check the PCA site out and comment, but also to look at their own family photo albums, and possibly submit their own photos, yearbooks or other historic documents.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, absolutely. I welcome everything. If they have a story to tell, I really like looking at them all,â&#x20AC;? he said. 7RVXEPLWDGLJLWDOSKRWRRUĂ&#x20AC;OH+DOOEHUJKDV started a dedicated email site, polkcountyagain@ gmail.com. He can also receive digital photos at the Facebook site, facebook.com/polkcountyagain, and has even posted historic videos, showing narrated movies of old Milltown in 1939-40, with business owners and workers, in a style reminiscent of a home movie. While Hallberg is excited by history, he is also hugely encouraged by the interest his PCA site has created, and he hopes that interest is contagious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really, really love doing it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great hobby. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really blown up more than I ever thought it would,â&#x20AC;? he said, pausing to again state how important he feels it is to keep these memories of people, events, places and buildings alive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m paying homage to all those people who were here before us,â&#x20AC;? Hallberg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One giant love letter, indeed!â&#x20AC;?

2%,78$5,(6$1'&+85&+1(:6 Local church kicks off military ministry OSCEOLA - Osceola Community Church is launching a new ministry in the St. Croix Valley aimed at veterans and active-duty military personnel and their families. The goal of RiSK Healing Connections is to extend a hand of support and fellowship to those who have served and help them heal from the physical, emotional and spiritual wounds of war. The ministry will kick off with a free lasagna dinner for all veterans and activeduty personnel on Friday, Nov. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Osceola Community Church. Child care is provided, and service members are welcome to bring a guest. While the event is free, please RSVP to the church ofĂ&#x20AC;FH RiSK Healing Connections goes much deeper than a single event, however. Based on a groundbreaking framework developed by author and retired military FKDSODLQ -RKQ 6LSSROD IRXQGHU RI WKH QRQSURĂ&#x20AC;W :HOcome Them Home, Help Them Heal, the RiSK ministry seeks to walk alongside families for the long haul. As the suicide rate of veterans continues to rise, now estimated at 23 veterans per day, the Osceola Community Church recognizes that military families have been left to pick up the pieces alone for far too long. In August, eight members of the church, including Pastor Larry Mederich, attended a six-day retreat at Camp Vermilion where they were trained in helping service members readjust to civilian life, post-traumatic stress, suicide prevention, moral injury and the impact on loved ones. In January, the entire congregation will learn about those topics through a four-week sermon series so that all church members are better equipped to meet the unique needs of military personnel and families. Central to the RiSK Healing Connections ministry are RiSK support groups comprised of service members, their spouses and several members of the church body. The small groups, which meet weekly and provide child care, focus on coping skills as well as spiritual healing

and forgiveness, an often overlooked wound that many carry. They offer the kind of low-intensity, long-term support that military families often need for many years.

A hospice volunteer is quoted as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone asked why I spend time volunteering for hospice. BeFDXVHKRVSLFHZDVWKHUHIRUP\IDPLO\DWDGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWLPH in our lives, and because hospice professionals provide the highest quality of medical care when people need it most. Why do I volunteer for hospice? It must be love!â&#x20AC;? Throughout the month of November, Spooner/ Grantsburg Regional Hospice Services will be joining organizations across the nation hosting activities that will help the community understand how important hospice and palliative care can be.

Retirement afforded Millie the opportunity to engage in another favorite activity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trips to the casino.

Peggy Sue Miller Peggy Sue Miller, of Frederic, Wis., died Oct. 7, 2015, at the age of 57. She battled MS for 16 years and lost the shorter battle with cancer. She died peacefully at home surrounded by family even though she told us all to go home. Peggy was an amazing woman. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and a surrogate mother/sister to many others. But she was best known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife.â&#x20AC;? Peggy may have complained about that, but we know she was proud of that name. She taught her children many things, but two of the biggest ones were that you can do anything at any age - Peggy went back to college later in her life and got her nursing degree; and the other lesson was to just be yourself and be proud of it. She was a unique person and never apologized for being who she was. Peggy is survived by her husband, Kirk; children, Beci (John) Setzer, Jim (Jenna) Miller and Patti (Jake) Harvey; her grandchildren, Samantha, Garrett, Matthew, Kelsey, Jeffrey and Gavin; her mother, Ethel Lane; grandma, Marty Peterson; brothers and sisters, Steve (Martha) Lane, Cheryl Chappelear, Gail Lane, Marlene (Scott) Nelson; nieces and nephews; friends, Sandy Hickey, George and Erin Hansford. A gathering was held at the Rowe Funeral Home in Frederic on Sunday, Oct. 11. A second gathering was held Saturday, Oct. 31, at Grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin in the Town of Lorain. An online guestbook is available at rowefh.com or wicremationcenter.com.

A Clintonville, Wis., native, Randy spent many years in the Green BayAppleton area, where he earned a graduate degree from UW-Stevens Point and started a family. Early on he advocated for the emerging concept RIEXWWHUĂ \JDUGHQLQJZKLFKOHDGKLP WRSLRQHHUDQGGHYHORSEXWWHUĂ \OLIH cycle kits which he distributed to classrooms. This in turn offered him an opportunity to interact with and educate children and families. As time went on, Randyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career in wildlife conservation became focused on educating children. To the sound of wild applause, the Frog Guy gave classroom presentations throughout the U.S. His work was punctuated by his contributions as president of the Wisconsin Audubon Council and Northeastern Wisconsin Audubon Society; co-founder of the Gaylord Nelson Audubon Chapter; and his service on the city council in St. Croix Falls, which he came to call home in 2007. His passion for both nature and good old-fashioned fun led him to create many friendships in the community and provided opportunities to highlight his skills at the library, the community garden, and many other local events and festivals. Randy is survived by three daughters and two sons-inlaw, Laura and Nolan Hoistad, Jessica Korb and Emily and Eric Sakowski; two grandsons, Maxwell Eilbert and Henry Hoistad; six brothers; two sisters; and a close-knit large extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents, Earl and Agnes Korb; and sister, Bonnie Barrington.

ave you ever watched a mama animal with her baby? She stays as close as possible for the sake of safety, warmth, food and training. The parents also spend time playing with their young. We humans do the same. My husband wrestled with the grandsons. Valuable lessons came from those fun times together. They learned social skills, became physically stronger and bonded with their grandpa. The fact that he took time to listen and play with them brought great respect and love on their part. They sought him out to ask questions, share their thoughts and problems and be near enough to touch him. God our father wants us to spend time with him, too.
