Stories from the NW Wisconsin community

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The world keeps getting smaller, which means that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier and easier to connect with and help people who are thousands of miles away. For Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Balsam Lake, that has meant a connection with Suriname, a country on the northeast coast of South America that is a roughly the size of Wisconsin. The population, however, is about one-tenth that of Wisconsin. Earlier this fall, said Pastor Diane Norstad of Faith Evangelical, she and other church families hosted the presiding president of the Lutheran Church in Suriname and her daughter. The Reverend Marjory Slagtand and Raissa were in this country dropping another daughter, Sarah, off at Augsburg College. The position of presiding president in Suriname corresponds with that of presiding Bishop in the ELCA. Faith Evangelical Lutheran Churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection with the South American nation goes back several years, to when the church began supporting Kevin Jacobson, a missionary pastor, to Suriname. Jacobson, a Wisconsin native, has been serving in Suriname since 2007. He has visited Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church and happens to be the pastor of the church where Slagtand and her family attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Pastor Marjory was making her plans to b ring Sarah to Augsburg College,â&#x20AC;? said Norstad, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pastor Kevin made the connection to Balsam Lake.â&#x20AC;? The church in Balsam Lake sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;adoptedâ&#x20AC;? Sarah, said Norstad, collecting the items she would need for her dorm room and transitioning to Augsburg College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her mom was really overwhelmed,â&#x20AC;? said Norstad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all mommas and daddies and we know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like.â&#x20AC;? Norstadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own daughter graduated from Augsburg last spring, so the connection and support was strengthened through that relationship as well. Life for teenagers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in Suriname is different than that in America, Norstad indicated. Only for WKHSDVWĂ&#x20AC;YH\HDUVKDVWKHVPDOOQDWLRQEHHQSROLWLFDOO\ stable. Because of the historic instability, said Norstad, young people in Suriname take very seriously their future role in shaping the nation. Sarah, who received a scholarship to Augsburg, will be studying business and plans to

Raissa is pursuing a career in environmental studies in Suriname. About 95 percent of the land in the country is undeveloped, said Norstad, but there are few regulations protecting the natural resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both daughters want to help their country,â&#x20AC;? said Norstad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are looking at, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What can we do to stabilize our country?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so different from our teenagers.â&#x20AC;? Faithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection with Suriname, said Norstad, is an example of how the larger Evangelical Lutheran Church is working to make a difference around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The connection with Suriname is one way Faith looks to extend our understanding of our Christian family well beyond the borders of Balsam Lake,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What many donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that the Evangelical Lu-

theran Churches are alive and well around our globe. Together we walk in faith, and through organizations such as the Lutheran World Federation goals are accomplished that cannot be accomplished alone.â&#x20AC;? One example of this, she said, is the ECLA Malaria Campaign, which has raised $15 million to alleviate malaria in Africa. For every $30 raised, said Norstad, a life is saved, so by working together the ECLA has saved many lives and slowed the rate of malaria in central Africa. Pastor Marjory and Raissa were able to spend several weeks in this area after getting Sarah settled. They enjoyed pontoon rides, church dinners, and site seeing in the area.

Hummingbird tripping

I

was sitting at my table and dreamily gazing out the window. Suddenly I saw a hummingbird hovering close, checking out my red-beaded wind chimes.

where Audubon met me. As you may or may not know, he shot and ate many of the birds he painted. He reported in his journals that while retrieving the goose, turning it over, he discovered me. Startled, Audubon made his erroneous remark about hummingbirds hitching a ride via geese during their migration over the Gulf. I was the only one, far as I know. I was one beautiful hummingbird, as Audubon wrote in his notes. The brilliant, iridescent colors of my plumage are caused by the structures of certain feathers. Like any diffraction, or prism, these structures split light into its component colors, and only certain frequencies are refracted back to the viewer. The resulting colors are much more vivid and iridescent than those of birds with only pigmented feathers. Everyone knows gorgeous and, historically, we have been killed for our feathers. And speaking of historical, an early Spanish report to Queen Isabella claimed that hummingbirds are a cross between a bird and an insect. Ah, memories! Where would Wanda be without them? What a wonderful world!

T

he 2015 summer tour season at Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park came to a rousing conclusion last week with the visit of over 300 kids on two days. They were taking part in the annual school marathon the site calls its Dagwaging event. No, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a dog tail-wagging contest. Dagwaging is the Ojibwe word for autumn and the forts crew, augmented by several volunteer re-enactors, use the event each year to wind down the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational activities. The re-enactors, many of whom also take part in the summer rendezvous and other events at the site, will be showcasing the skills and knowledge needed to survive during the time of the original Forts Folle Avoine traders. Interestingly, what marks the end of the 2015 season takes place at the beginning of the original trading cycle. During its time as a functioning trading post, from 1802-05, the place was used only in fall, winter and spring. Summers were spent traveling by canoe with the prior seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s furs to Lake Superiorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Portage, where new trade goods had been forwarded several thousand miles from Montreal, Canada. Eventually the furs obtained from the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ojibwe hunters were sent via sailing ship to Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fur capitals to be auctioned to fur processors for clothing and other items. Key, of course, was the beaver, valued for its advantage in fashioning stiff, elegant top hats. The Dagwaging activities are built

These events also help youth and families connect to the variety of fun and educational experiences available through 4-H Youth Development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;4-H has a great reputation even though many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available in towns, suburbs and large cities across Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? says Wisconsin 4-H Youth Development Program Director Dale Leidheiser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;4-H offers robotics, science, photography and dozens of other activities designed for children no matter where they live?â&#x20AC;? Wisconsin 4-H Youth Development programs provide fun, hands-on learning in a safe, welcoming atmosphere, giving

youth the support and space they need to master the necessary skills for future success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children today will have jobs and careers that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet been invented,â&#x20AC;? Leidheiser says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;4-H will develop the life skills transferable to any career so they can learn, adapt and thrive whatever the future holds.â&#x20AC;? Many 4-H clubs and groups around the state will also be participating in the 4-H National Youth Science Day experiment on Wednesday, Oct. 7. Every year, 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers around the nation practice their critical thinking and problem-solving skills with a different experiment. This

year, youth with explore physics, speed and safety with Motion Commotion, an experiment from Oregon State University Cooperative Extension that uses toy cars to simulate a speeding car collision and distracted driving. Many Polk County Clubs will participate in this experiment with teen 4-H ambassadors leading the activity.

Almost 300 compete at the Baker Orchard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donkey Crossâ&#x20AC;? Cyclocross bike race CENTURIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 278 bicycle racers from the Midwest raced at the 2014 Baker Cyclocross event held on Saturday, Oct. 3. Dry conditions during the week leading up to the event ensured a fast, challenging course, unlike many cyclocross races that often end up as muddy, slow events, requiring riders to change to cleaner bikes midrace, when the mud builds up and brakes and gears quit working. Racers competed for merchandise awards, apples from Baker Orchard and cash prizes in 18 divisions. Complete event results can be found on the website of the Minnesota Cycling Federation, mcf.net. - from Polk County Tourism Council

M

y dad smoked from age 14 until his 70th birthday. He lived to be 95. My mom was 97 when she died. They took no vitamins, ate a diet typical of most Americans and exercised little. However, their hearts were healthy to the end, probably because of their genetic makeup. Yet we know that diet, exercise and living a stress-free life also can determine the health of our hearts. We refer to the heart in ways other than the physical sense. We consider a kind person as good-hearted, bighearted or one who has a heart of gold. We learn we should follow our heart, have a change of heart or open our heart. We can lose heart, be sick at heart

&RXSOHVXQKHDOWK\OLIHVW\OH HQGDQJHULQJOLIHRILQIDQW Q: I love my son and daughter-in-law, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m worried about their 10-monthold daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. The house is piled deep with trash, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moldy food stuck to the carpet and dirty diapers are left lying around everywhere. My granddaughter is constrained to an infant seat to keep her from getting into these messes even though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old enough to start crawling. Should I express my concerns over these troubling health conditions? Jim: In most cases itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for grandparents to keep their advice to themselves until asked. But if the situation is as unhealthy as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve described, it may be time to intervene. So what can you do? It might be a good idea to begin by enlisting the help of another adult, preferably someone your son likes and respects, who can join you in advocating for your granddaughter. Raise the subject gently but as straightforwardly as possible. Help your son and his wife see that this is more than just a question of personal preferences and different â&#x20AC;&#x153;stylesâ&#x20AC;? of housekeeping, but that they are, in fact, endangering the health and well-being of their child.

It can be sincere, trusting, willing, wise, steadfast and pure. It desires, rejoices, searches, believes and refreshes. It also can be evil, proud, wicked and deceitful. Our heart can despise, condemn, doubt, be as hard as

Social workers will advise you on the various options available. Among other things, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that your son and daughter-in-law need practical training in the fundamentals of child care. Mandatory counseling may also be necessary, but this is something for skilled professionals to decide. The important thing is for you, as a grandparent, to do everything you can to enlist the support and community services necessary to raise your sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family to a higher-functioning level. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Question: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always tended to express myself in a wry, ironic way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all a joke, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean any harm by it. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering if my sarcastic style of humor might be potentially damaging to my teens. What do you think? Greg Smalley, vice president, Family Ministries: This can be a complicated subject, but on the whole parents need to be careful about the way they use sarcasm. This is especially important when dealing with teenagers. There are two

stone, become confused and even die. It can grieve, yearn, be troubled and in turmoil. Our spiritual heart needs to be healthy. Jesus said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.â&#x20AC;? (Matthew 5:8) When our hearts are clean of impurities and sin, we will be blessed with Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence. Instead, if ZHDOORZRXUKHDUWWREHĂ&#x20AC;OOHGZLWKVHOI love and other sin, it will be spiritually weak, develop a thin covering and easily become shriveled.

(1 Samuel 16:7) A heart like that of Jesus is strong. In his ministry on

)RFXV RQWKHIDPLO\ Jim Daly major problems related to teens and parental sarcasm. First, sarcasm can hurt feelings, and words uttered in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;humorous momentâ&#x20AC;? can cause ongoing pain later. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily need to place an all-out moratorium on playful sarcasm, but there should be boundaries. Give your children the right to tell you when it bothers them. The second pitfall is more subtle. Sarcasm can mask sensitive or vulnerable feelings. Imagine a father watching his lovely 16-year-old daughter come downstairs. He might say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honey, you look beautiful tonight.â&#x20AC;? Or, if he tends to be sarcastic, he might quip, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man, you were such an ugly little girl! What happened?â&#x20AC;? Same underlying point, but one is obviously much more complimentary than the other. One last point: As parents we need to remember that we reap what we sow. You may call your â&#x20AC;&#x153;styleâ&#x20AC;? of humor sarcastic, but when the tables are turned

earth, he always saw past the outer veneer into the heart. As his followers, our hearts also must expand and throb for the love of God and neighbor. How can we be spiritually hearthealthy? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.â&#x20AC;? (Philippians 4:7) Lord, thank you for your heart of love. Help us, through your Spirit, to develop clean, loving hearts for you and for those around us. In Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name, amen.
