),5675($' SPOONER — Almost everyone over the age of 25 in Wisconsin remembers the incident in the Blue Hills near Rice Lake when one deer hunter shot eight and killed six other hunters, including a young woman. Author David Whitehurst was hunting in the Blue Hills that day. He became aware of the incident that afternoon, and was compelled to write a book. Published in February 2015, “Tree Stand Murdersâ€? has received good reviews and rated at 4-1/2 of 5 stars by Amazon. Whitehurst will be attending an author’s event at Northwind Book & Fiber, 205 Walnut St., Spooner, from 6:30- 8 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 21. He will offer a PowerPoint presentation about the book, which contains more photographs than FRXOGĂ€WLQWRWKHERRN7KHSXUSRVHRIWKHSUHVHQWDtion is to frame and provide context for the book, to talk through many aspects of the story and to answer questions. Books will be available that evening for him to sign if anyone is interested. “Because the shooter was Hmong and the victims were white, much of the media reported this as racial. In actuality, race played a minor role. Cultural differences, private property rights and a personality clash created a gripping drama,â€? stated Whitehurst. Containing information not previously known to the public, the book illuminates, in easy-to-read story format, the backgrounds of those involved, the DQJHUĂ€OOHGDQGKHDUWZUHQFKLQJLQFLGHQWWKHH[HPSODU\WULDODQGDQVZHUVWKH FULWLFDOTXHVWLRQ:KRVKRWĂ€UVW"— submitted

Democrats look to repeal shoreline zoning changes Danielle Kaeding | WPR News MADISON - Wisconsin lawmakers have introduced a bill to repeal shoreland zoning changes that were included in the recently passed state budget. The bill seeks to undo changes that critics have argued will lead to overdevelopment along lakes. Its author, state Sen. Janet Bewley, said the changes prevent many northern communities from enforcing stricter standards to protect lakes.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the state to come in and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, all of your lots can be chopped up and developed into smaller parcels,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I think is an insult to the good people who work hard to come up with regulations that make sense for their own lakes,â&#x20AC;? said Bewley, an Ashland Democrat. State Rep. Adam Jarchow, who authored changes to shoreland zoning that were included in the budget, opposes the repeal effort. The Balsam Lake Repub-

lican said the changes protect property rights.

Lake access sparks debate over shorebird recovery efforts Groups plan road, beach closures to aid piping plover nesting

Danielle Kaeding | WPR News SUPERIOR - A conservation group is seeking to temporarily close a section of Lake Superior beach next spring as part of an effort to encourage endangered shorebirds to return and nest in areas where they once thrived. Piping plover havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nested in the Twin Ports since the mid-1980s, according to Kris Eilers, executive director of the St. Louis River Alliance.

VRPHORFDORIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVOLNH'RXJODV&RXQW\ Board Supervisor Keith Allen, who said he took issue with the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limited access to the shoreline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they can make that project doable, I hope it works and I hope the piping plovers nest like crazy,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t block off all the access to the lake.â&#x20AC;? Allen, who chairs the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land and development committee, said a compromise was approved that would allow the group to close just one road this upcoming beach season, along with the beach area where birds have been spotted. Committee member Dave Conley said they hope it will improve access while protecting the piping plovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, when both roads were closed, it was much more restrictive for accessing that portion of the beach, although the beach technically was still open,â&#x20AC;? he said. Conley said he supports the effort to restore piping plover on Wisconsin Point. However, he questioned the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proxLPLW\WRWKHFLW\¡VODQGĂ&#x20AC;OOZKLFKGUDZVLQ crowds of seagulls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gulls are predators to the young plovers,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Eilers said the site was chosen because it provides suitable habitat for the endangered shorebird. She added that two male piping plovers were spotted on Wisconsin Point this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The males are really seeking some breeding grounds in earnest, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re checking out historical sites,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting high water levels also seem to be playing a role in their movement. As a result of the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision, Eilers said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning to hire local police to help keep people out of the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be 24/7 or anything like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that kind of budget. But there will be some law enforcement presence.â&#x20AC;? Eilers said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to close the section of the beach from mid-April to mid-June when piping plovers typically nest. The alliance has been using a roughly $250,000 grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to aid in the birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recovery. The agency awarded them another $48,000 to continue the project into next year.

Frederic plans Safe Routes to School Mary Stirrat | Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Frederic School District is currently working on a Safe Routes to School grant, and the Frederic Village Board on Monday night, Oct. 12, appointed a representative to the task force. The school, village Trustee Maria Ammend reported, is applying for a $10,000 grant through West Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission to come up with a plan for improving walking and biking routes to school. Safe Routes to School funding is available through the Department of Transportation at the federal level, passed through to the state, added William Johnson IV, who was appointed to the task force. Johnson is on the executive board of WCWRPC. According to information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the task force will collect data to determine how many children walk and bike to school along with the routes used. Safer alternative routes will be looked at, and an inventory of problem areas and possible solutions will be developed. Projects eligible for Safe Routes to School funding, according to the DOT, must be within two miles of an elementary or middle school that serves K-8 students. Design and construction of improvements to sidewalks and pedestrian and bicycle crossings, as well as bike parking areas can be funded. A variety of organizations have been invited to attend a Thursday, Oct. 22, meeting, Ammend said, to gain information, ask questions and give input. She said that the school would eventually like to see someone from both the public works and police departments be involved. Frederic School District Administrator Josh Robinson, in his September report, wrote that the task force will meet in October and November, eventually creating a Safe Routes to School plan that will be adopted by the school board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting to this point has been a twoyear process,â&#x20AC;? he wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but may create some wonderful opportunities for students walking and riding bike to school.â&#x20AC;?

Other goals include possibly using new and different electronic media to keep the community and district informed of everything from athletics to music programs, drama, academic achievements and even school infrastructure updates. Past committee discussion suggested maybe even incorporating real-time updates and feeds, as well as social media platforms not even invented yet. District Administrator Mark Burandt suggested the board shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limit themselves to the current media, and their policy could apply to whatever latest technology platform might become popular.

Tax levy up 3 percent in Milltown Village to create a Facebook page

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer MILLTOWN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; With one piece of the puzzle still missing, the Milltown Village Board has put together its 2016 budget that includes a tax levy increase of 3 percent. The missing piece is the equalized property value within the village, which is usually available by mid-October. This is the number thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed before the taxing mill rate, which tells property owners what the taxes will be on every LQSURSHUW\YDOXHFDQEHĂ&#x20AC;QDOL]HG As it stands, the total tax levy for the village will be increasing from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $396,008 to $407,873. Included is $299,720 for the general fund, which is $9,200 less than last year, along with $72,303 for the library. This is the same amount as was levied for the library last year. 7KHĂ&#x20AC;QDOLQWD[HVLVEHLQJOHYLHG for the capital project funds. The 2016 budget, with the exception of the mill rate, was hammered out at the Monday, Oct. 12, meeting of the Milltown Village Board. It will be presented for adoption at the Monday, Nov. 9, meeting of the board. Facebook The village of Milltown will be creating a Facebook page, entering the age of social media. According to village clerk/treasurer Amy Albrecht, the page will focus on keeping residents informed of things like

fall cleanup dates, elections, ordinance changes and local happenings. Utility clerk/office assistant Diana Virkus will primarily be responsible for maintaining the page.

2WKHUEXVLQHVV â&#x20AC;˘ Fall cleanup days will be Monday, Oct. 19, through Friday, Oct. 23. Brush, leaves and twigs will be picked up. Arrangements can be made for picking up appliances by calling the village shop. â&#x20AC;˘ Public works director Mike Nutter reported that the water tower is out of compliance and has three maintenance needs. The ladder is only attached in one place, he said, and needs to be rewelded to the tower. A vent needs repair, and the cable that is used as a harness for people climbing the ladder needs to be replaced. Cost for bringing it into compliance is $10,100. â&#x20AC;˘ Responding to a request from Jeannie Alling, the village will be having a tree delivered to its sister city of Milltown, Ind. Alling initially made the contact with Milltown, Ind., and initiated a relationship between the two communities. The Indiana town has sent a bench, a tree and a landscaping rock to beautify the village of Milltown in Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;˘ To meet expenses, the board voted to increase the annual allocation to the park commission for Half Moon Beach from $500 a year to $650, and will ask the Town of Milltown to do the same. The two municipalities split the cost for upkeep and for maintaining electricity and a phone at the beach.

With referendum project, small mill rate increase expected at Unity

Annual district meeting is Monday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m.

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Elsewhere in this edition of the Leader is Unity School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publication of its proposed 2015-16 budget, which will be voted upon by district residents at the Monday, Oct. 26, annual district meeting. This budget includes the tax impact of a $17,495,000 building referendum that residents will be voting on Nov. 3. Even though the proposed budget includes payment on the $17.5 million project, noted district Administrator Brandon Robinson, property taxes will only increase about 11 cents on every $1,000 in equalized property value. Robinson was speaking with members of the school board of education at their Tuesday, Oct. 13, meeting. 'XHLQODUJHSDUWWRDQLQFUHDVHLQVWDWHDLGWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW that Unity has received since 2006, and the retirement of other debt, the tax increase is lower than originally expected. The total tax levy included in the published 2015-16 budget is $11,157,540, up about 5 percent over last year. This levy consists of about $8.54 million for general operations, $2 million for referendum debt, $215,000 for nonreferendum debt and $250,000 for the community service fund. The $2 million referendum debt includes about $500,000 for the 1998 elementary and middle school remodel, which will be paid off in 2017, and $1.5 million for the referendum that will be voted on in November. Although the district is seeing an increase of about $800,000 in state aid, it is also seeing a reduction of about $90,000 in its declining enrollment exemption. This exemption is based on the average enrollment for the most recent three years, and that average is leveling out. 7KLV\HDULQIDFWWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOHQUROOPHQWFRXQWWDNHQ the third Friday in September showed an increase of seven students over last year, to 1,067. 5HIHUHQGXP Unityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at unity.k12.wi.us has information on the referendum, including a video highlighting the issues that the referendum projects will address.

These are being held at Centuria Public Library Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 1 p.m., at Milltown Public Library Thursday, Oct. 15, at 10 a.m., and at Balsam Lake Public Library Friday, Oct. 16, at 11 a.m.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The focus (of the referendum) is to address an aging 1958 facility and infrastructure,â&#x20AC;? Robinson said in his report to the board, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as well as programming needs that continue to be a concern.â&#x20AC;? The mechanical, heating, cooling, air quality and HQHUJ\HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\ LQIUDVWUXFWXUH WKURXJKRXW WKH ZKROH building will be renovated or replaced. High school science areas will be added, and special education classrooms will be remodeled.

Security and safety issues will be addressed with new entrances, a new bus drop-off and a new parent drop-off. Auditorium and gymnasium space will be added, to meet the needs of both the school and community. The school will soon be sending informational brochures to residents of the district, and Robinson encouraged anyone with questions to contact him.

Economic development discussed at Centuria village board Marty Seeger|Staff writer CENTURIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Steve Healy, executive director of the Polk County Economic Development Corp., presented information to the Centuria Village Board at their monthly meeting Monday, Oct. 12. The PCEDC is something that several area local villages participate in on a yearly basis. According to part of the handout given to board members and media, the PCEDC works â&#x20AC;&#x153;to look for opportunities to enhance your community and to serve businesses in your community. We DUH KHUH WR KHOS EXVLQHVVHV ZLWK Ă&#x20AC;QDQFing needs, strategy, resolving issues and much more.â&#x20AC;? Healy told the board that he spends most of his time working with the local businesses on expansion, as opposed to recruiting new businesses because that can be hard to accomplish and is expensive, however, they do facilitate business recruitment, among many other core services. All of these services do require a fee, and Healyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main purpose at the meeting was to ask the board for their annual member donation. According to the handout statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We rely on member donations to be able to assist your community and cannot do this without member support. So as you develop your annual budget, we are asking that you budget an amount of $1 per capita for the 2016 calendar year. %DVHG RQ WKH  2IĂ&#x20AC;FLDO &HQVXV 'DWD for Polk County, our request for 2016 is $948. We will be sending you an invoice for 2016â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request in December.â&#x20AC;? Later in the meeting the board unanimously approved an act to once again support the Polk County Economic Development agreement for 2016. It was also noted later in the meeting that the board will be meeting for their annual budget workshop set for Monday, Oct. 19, at 6 p.m. Before wrapping up his presentation, Healy was asked by village President Dave Markert what types of businesses he would encourage in Centuria. Healy said every community in Polk County is unique. At the Centuria industrial park,

expansions are happening, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Healy says he tries to focus on the most, as opposed to recruiting. He mentioned Schaffer Manufacturing and Sunway, Inc., as prime examples, and says he works closely with both to continue to improve or expand on their businesses. Healy said light-manufacturing jobs or manufacturing in general are good for the local economy.

Personnel committee Under new business discussions the personnel committee addressed the board on a few topics, including a recommendation on wages. The personnel committee agreed to approve a 2-percent increase in wages for village employees, as well as an adjustment in wages for police Chief Dan Clement. The board also discussed PRYLQJSDUWWLPHSROLFH2IĂ&#x20AC;FHU(ULF-RUgensen, to a full-time position, and unanimously approved the recommendation by the personnel committee.

According to board minutes the village met on Thursday, Sept. 17. The board purchased the property for $15,000. The minutes stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the owner of the property would be responsible for the utility bills and property taxes incurred, and getting the tenant to vacate the property by the end of September. The closing would be set up for Oct. 13, with the village paying the closing costs. â&#x20AC;˘ The board unanimously approved an operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license for Justine Melin. â&#x20AC;˘ Board members made a motion to approve and appoint Rita Cruzer to replace Barb Luepke on the library board. â&#x20AC;˘ The board moved to appoint Stan Swiontek to the water and sewer board, and appointed Jake Jerrick and James Schmidt to the electric board, before adjourning the meeting.

New gas stations, signs, airport on council agenda Gregg Westigard | Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The monthly meeting of the Grantsburg Village Board Monday, Oct. 12, had a quiet agenda. There was no talk of the bears and no public hearings. The agenda included discussion on the changes coming to the gas stations in town and their signs, the closing of the transfer station, cleanup of village property and what to do with the airport. The board will be working on the 2016 village budget in preparation for the November hearing and meeting. Both gas stations in town are changing ownership and brands. The Holiday station will now be a Minit Mart. The BP station will now sell Sinclair gas, a very old brand name. The board had to approve a new taller Sinclair sign with the dinosaur on top soaring over the trees. As part of the discussion on village ordinances it

came out that the village has 1,200 pages of ordinances with new ones being proposed all the time by legal watchdogs. The gas stations will continue, but the transfer station at the dump where people could drop off large items is closed, with no applications to operate it. The village will continue to keep the site open for brush drop off but is talking about moving the recycling bins to a more secure site to discourage people from dropping off garbage with their recyclables. Librarian Kristina Kelly-Johnson reported that the library programs are growing, with lots of young people using the services after school. Diane Barton said that one excellent program is Read Naturally, where adult volunteers listen as young students improve their reading skills. She said the program not only helps the students but opens the volun-

teers to new knowledge as they hear of things they might not have read on their own. Barton told of one young person who received reading help from the program while in seventh grade. Several years later that student graduated in the top 10 of the class. The airport is an ongoing issue. Some of the users are getting a bit more organized, but the board is looking at how much village money should go into the site. One issue is how many of the 11 hangars are actually in use and housing planes. Some of the users are proposing using federal airport money to repair the paved runway, but accepting those funds involves making a 20-year commitment to keeping the airport open. Board President Glenn Rolloff said the village would love to keep the airport open for the hobbyists but needs to look at the long-term expenses.

He added that the village is still waiting for someone to come forward interested in operating the site. The golf course lease is coming up for renewal. Rolloff said that John Addison has done a fantastic job of running the golf course and the village canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose him. The food shelf lease was also up and was renewed for a year with no discussion. Last year the food shelf, located in the village garage, drew some intense discussion at two board meetings that attracted large participation. Progress was reported on several village cleanup projects. The old church is gone after many years, and the asbestos will soon be removed from the old building, now owned by the village, behind the SRVWRIĂ&#x20AC;FHE\WKHULYHU2QFHWKDWLVFRPpleted the site will be leveled and ready for new development.

Ojibwe tribes want Madeline Island registered as historic site Island is sacred home for Bad River, Red Cliff tribes Danielle Kaeding | WPR News BAYFIELD - Two Ojibwe tribes are seeking to nominate an island on Lake Superior for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, a move that may affect how construction or expansion projects move forward there. Madeline Island is a sacred homeland for the Red Cliff and Bad River bands of Lake Superior Chippewa. The tribes migration story says they were told to travel west until they reached the place where food grows on water. Army Corps of Engineers archaeologist Brad Johnson said the island wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive any cut and dried protections if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eligible for listing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means Madeline Island would receive additional consideration as an historic property during our permit evaluations,â&#x20AC;? he said. Red Cliff Tribal Chairman Bryan Bainbridge said the tribes want to preserve their history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to make anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life hard to get a project done, but out of respect to what the culture was there and still is there,â&#x20AC;? said Bainbridge. Johnson said the Army Corps and the state need to agree on whether Madeline Island is eligible for listing on the National Register.

$VVHPEO\PDQVKRXOGEH PRUHFDUHIXOZLWKZRUGV In the recent issues of local papers, Assemblyman Adam Jarchow WLWOHG KLV FROXPQ ZLWK DQ LQĂ DPmatory and misleading statement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Democrats attack hunting and hunters.â&#x20AC;? His column continues, stating that Sen. Fred Risser, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a liberal Madison Democrat,â&#x20AC;? is circulating a bill to end hunting in state parks. I partially agree with Jachow that Risser is proposing legislation to end hunting in state parks. I attended a recent meeting of the Wildlife Committee of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation in Stevens Point where the Risser bill was discussed. The committee voted unanimously (including me) to oppose the bill if it is actually considered in the Wisconsin Legislature. I predict the bill will not pass if introduced in the Legislature. Restricted hunting has been allowed in state parks for some time and, as far as I know, there have been no problems between hunters and other park users. Hunting is restricted by game species hunted, time of year, areas hunted within the park and number of hunters allowed in the park to prevent problems arising. The tone of Jarchowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column gives the impression that all state parks are open to unrestricted hunting which is not true. Jarchow also uses â&#x20AC;&#x153;Democratsâ&#x20AC;? rather than Democrat since he writes about only one person, Risser. In addition, Risser is not â&#x20AC;&#x153;attackingâ&#x20AC;? all hunting and all hunters, just hunting in state parks, not all state lands. Many Democrats are hunters. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an Independent voter but tend to vote Democratic on some issues, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a dyed-in-the-wool hunter. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve hunted over 60 years LQ:LVFRQVLQĂ&#x20AC;YHRWKHUVWDWHVDQG three Canadian provinces. I also take issue with Jarchowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the animus that many Democrats hold toward gun owners and hunters.â&#x20AC;? Where are his IDFWV"0DQ\'HPRFUDWVDUHDOVRJXQ owners. I personally own a dozen guns for hunting and personal protection and know many Democrats who own guns. Balsam Lake Conservative Jarchow demonizes â&#x20AC;&#x153;Madison liberalsâ&#x20AC;? in his column apparently trying to win support from upstate rural people. Wisconsin citizens have resented downstate Madison politicians since Wisconsin became a state. Polls have shown that approximately 80 percent of U.S. citizens do not hunt and that majority is increasing, especially in urban areas. The percentage of hunters is higher in rural areas than in urban areas. Apparently Jachow is trying to exploit our urban-rural, north-

:+(5(72:5,7( south citizen (including hunters) differences. He might be trying to improve his political image after the public outcry over his changes made to the wetland zoning law in the recent state budget bill. Regardless, Jarchow should be more careful when making statements that automatically condemn a whole group for the actions of an individual in that group. How would he react to a news headline like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Republicans DWWDFNHGXFDWLRQDQGVWXGHQWVÂľ" Jim Evrard Grantsburg

*UDQWVEXUJUHYLWDOL]DWLRQ In October we celebrate Grantsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sesquicentennial. This village has a very storied past. Farming, horses, regional leader in cranberry harvest, government center of Burnett County, a thriving downtown with hotels, a working mill on the river, restaurants and a movie theater, even a train through the center of town with the distinctive moniker of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blueberry Special.â&#x20AC;? Grantsburg has a remarkable past and a stately presence. But Grantsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distinguished past has faded. The government center was moved to Siren. Businesses moved out or closed down. The farming, the carpet company, the transportation hub, all receded. A few good things happened. The new Grantsburg Industrial Park and Parker Hannifinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s establishment here have been good for the village. An integrated modern grade and high school campus was established DORQJZLWKDĂ&#x20AC;UVWFODVVPHGLFDOFHQter. An extensive network of ski and hiking trails was built within and around the village. And a small but well-instrumented airport was built. But the last 20 years have not been so kind. Grantsburg is receding, so a real effort is being made to revitalize the village. The Grantsburg Revitalization Operation is working to identify and advertise the natural beauty and many scenic trails and destinations within our immediate area. Friends of the Library have sponsored a new addition to the library, and we have now added a full-time library director to establish new programs for children and adults and to make our library more meaningful to residents. Pilots are working to beautify and make the Grantsburg airport more of a preferred destination for other small-plane pilots. But for GRO to be successful, the village has to step up to the plate. Without village support there will be no money next year for our fulltime library director. We will not be able to open the library for the longer hours that our community needs. The airport, which has been principally ignored for years by the board, needs to be recognized as a valuable resource of Grantsburg.

Our Memory Lake Park has fallen into unimaginative use as a motorized camping park for all but three days in the summer when it hosts watercross. The trails system is being rebuilt but it needs local support to stay alive. A budget hearing will take place on Monday, Oct. 19, for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. I urge all residents to get involved in the budget this year. Without your support, the library may not grow at all but recede. Without your support the airport may be abandoned. The trails may be closed as too much trouble. Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions or comments. Let me know if you support a revitalized Grantsburg or not. Nothing will happen without your support. You can reach any of the village board members by visiting grantsburgwi.com/village-board. html. Plan on coming to our budget hearing meeting on Oct. 19. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act, nothing will change, and that will be the only change. Rod Kleiss Village trustee Grantsburg

s Thanksgiving approaches, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, RRochester, wants to carve up the agency which oversees ethics and elections in Wisconsin. Critics seem to view it like getting years-old turkey out of THE basement freezer. Vosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan, backed by Gov. Scott Walker, would replace the six retired appeals court judges now sitting on the Government Accountability Board with two bipartisan commissions dominated by politicians. Unlimited funding for investigations would be eliminated, and the governor would get to appoint the top staffer on each commission. The speaker is angry about the GABâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the John Doe investigation into the coordination between Walker and conservative groups during the 2012 recall election. Vos called it an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;unconstitutional investigation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As they went through the process, they did some things I think were patently wrong,â&#x20AC;? Vos contends. The Legislature created the GAB in 2007 to replace the State Elections Board and the State Ethics Board in the aftermath of the

6WDWH &DSLWRO 1HZVOHWWHU 0DWW3RPPHU 2001-2002 scandal that involved legislative leaders of both parties. Former state Sen. Mike Ellis, R-Neenah, is generally given credit for the GAB idea. 7KH*$%RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOO\EHJDQZRUNLQ January 2008. Matt Rothschild, executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, called the proposed changes â&#x20AC;&#x153;petty vengeance on the part of Republican leaders,â&#x20AC;? adding it is a fevered effort to shield themselves from embarrassment and prosecution in the future. Vos calls the GAB â&#x20AC;&#x153;a failed experiment.â&#x20AC;? He touts his plan as following the general model of the Federal Elections Commission and of other states. Alas, the Federal Elections Commission is usually deadlocked. Rothschild notes it has a tough time even deciding what food to

provide for its meetings, let alone make policy decisions. State Rep. Dean Knudson, R-Hudson, who has helped draft the new legislation, downplayed the idea the new commissions would be hopelessly deadlocked. He said commission members ZRXOGEH´ZHOOTXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HGSHRSOHDEOHWR compromise.â&#x20AC;? Retired Appeals Court Judge Gordon Myse of Appleton served on the old State Elections Board and was on the GAB for three years. Yes, the Elections Board members were â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceptional people,â&#x20AC;? he has written, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the board was unable to act positively on any matter of substance. This deadlock was caused by a partisan view of all proposals. There is no reason to believe returning to this Ă DZHGFRQFHSWZLOOZRUNDQ\EHWWHUWKLV time around.â&#x20AC;? :DONHUKDVDSSRLQWHGĂ&#x20AC;YHRIWKHVL[ retired judges now serving on the GAB. Board Chair Gerald Nichol, a former Republican district attorney before becoming a judge, has offered an alternative to dismantling the GAB. He has suggested allowing each major party to have a nonvoting member on the board. It can be argued Republicans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Vosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proposed changes. Gerryman-

dering has created legislative district lines that virtually guarantee they will control the Legislature through 2022. Conservatives control the state Supreme Court. Earlier this year the high court halted the John Doe investigation. The conservative justices are expected to give Walker control over development of education rules for the state. But changes are coming for next fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general election. Registration hours have been limited and a photo ID requirement takes effect. Both will make it harder for the poor and elderly to vote. The last Republican presidential candidate to carry Wisconsin was Ronald Reagan. Vos would have the new commissions in charge by mid-2016. Jay Heck of Common Cause in Wisconsin said Vosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan â&#x20AC;&#x153;would fundamentally transfer what was a nationally DGPLUHGPRGHORIHIIHFWLYHQHVVHIĂ&#x20AC;ciency and impartially into a partisan, toothless backwater state agency completely under the control of partisan politicians. ´,WZRQ¡WEHZRUWKWKHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHVSDFHLW will occupy,â&#x20AC;? added Heck.

Hard times for the Palmetto State

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tough few months for South Carolina. Back in June, nine people in a Charleston church were gunned down by a mass murderer during a Bible study. Then the state battled it out over the next few weeks on the LVVXHRIWKH&RQIHGHUDWHĂ DJĂ \LQJRYHU WKHVWDWH&DSLWROĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\GHFLGLQJWR take that divisive symbol down but still leaving the state deeply divided. And, of course, earlier this month, unprecedented rainfall produced what many FDOOHG´D\HDUĂ RRGÂľZKRVHZDters have still not totally receded at this writing. To give you some idea of what kind of record-setting rainfall weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about, consider this: six reporting sites around the state broke the one-day rainfall record for any month of the year. One site, Mount Pleasant, outside of Charleston, had 27 inches of rain during the storm, and virtually every reporting station had at least a foot. One Charleston neighborhood saw 15 inches fall in less than 10 hours the morning of Oct. 4. Now you might think this solidly Republican state wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look to the much-maligned federal government for help at a time like this. And you might think presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, who voted against federal aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t now expect the feds to rush in to help his beleaguered state. You would be wrong. In fact, Graham told CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wolf Blitzer last week, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just get through this thing, and whatever it costs, it costs.â&#x20AC;? When reminded that he opposed similar help from the federal government for New Jersey, Graham said - Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not making this up - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for

7KHYLHZ IURPKHUH Steve Pearson helping people in New Jersey. I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember me voting that way.â&#x20AC;? When pressed further, he continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be glad to look and tell you why I did vote no, if I did.â&#x20AC;? And Graham wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone in shunning Sandyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victims. While the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republican congressional delegation is mounting a full-court press to secure IHGHUDODLGIRUĂ RRGYLFWLPVLQ6RXWK Carolina, they voted against the aid package for embattled New York and New Jersey residents back in 2013. But Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez holds no ill will toward those who would have denied help for his state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a reason we call this the United States of America and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d respond to any fellow AmerLFDQVZKRĂ&#x20AC;QGWKHPVHOYHVLQWKHPLGVW of tragedy as we see in South Carolina,â&#x20AC;? he said last week. All of this got me thinking about the ever-greater frequency of extreme weather events, whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talkLQJ(DVW&RDVWĂ RRGLQJ:HVW&RDVW droughts or Midwest blowdowns of the sort our area experienced back in 2011. Climate scientists are reluctant to try to establish a cause-effect relationship between global warming and extreme weather, but the fact is, most have predicted an increasing incidence of these events as our planet warms, and the South Carolina deluge is just the latest in a series of freakish weather occurrences. And, interestingly enough, that led to thoughts of another Republican from

South Carolina, former representative Bob Inglis. First elected in 1992, Inglis represented the 4th District in his home state for seven terms, garnering at least 60 percent and sometimes more than 70 percent in each of his six election campaigns. 'XULQJKLVĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKUHHWHUPVIURP 1992 to 1998, he was a climate change skeptic, calling the link between human activity and global warming â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bunch of nonsense.â&#x20AC;? With a 93-percent positive voting record on conservative issues, he seemed destined to hold the seat as long as he wanted to. When he returned to the House of Representatives in 2004, he ended up on the House Science Committee where he was sent to Antarctica twice to evaluate U.S. programs studying climate change there. What he saw in those visits changed his way of thinking. In the Antarctic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got . . . 800,000 years or so of records of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atmosphere because the South Pole is a desert,â&#x20AC;? Inglis told a PBS interviewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So when you do ice core GULOOLQJV\RXFDQĂ&#x20AC;QGDUHFRUGRIWKH amount of carbon dioxide over time in the atmosphere. And so for me, it became pretty clear in that evidence that, gee, that makes sense; that we just started burning all this fossil fuel, we affected the chemistry of the air. Physics are physics, and light comes in, heat doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out, you are warming.â&#x20AC;? Inglis took that learning and translated it into something rare for a politician: he did an about face in his views on global warming. In doing so, he committed political heresy. He said, in effect, that the science trumped political expediency, and he began to speak his truth on the science of climate change. The effects were immediate and profound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me give you a sense of the scene,â&#x20AC;? Inglis tells it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a big tent

gathering in Spartanburg County, a bunch of Republicans. And so there comes a question to me from the local Christian talk radio host, who says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes or no: Do you believe in human causaWLRQRQFOLPDWHFKDQJH"¡,KDGDEDG habit of answering questions, so I said yes. Boo, hiss, comes the crowd. I was blasted out from underneath the tent. There are a couple of hundred, 300 people there. I mean, it was intense.â&#x20AC;? The rest, as they say, was history. Inglis drew the inevitable primary challenge from a fellow named Gowdy who defeated him in a landslide, 79 to 21 percent. Inglisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; political career, once highly promising, had come to a screeching halt. But his moral compass was intact. Bob Inglis went on to receive the -RKQ).HQQHG\3URĂ&#x20AC;OHLQ&RXUDJH Award for reversing his views on climate change while knowing full well it would end his political career in South Carolina. But he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there, not content to rest on his laurels. He went on to found the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, an effort to turn conservative thinking on the climate change LVVXH+LVSURSRVDOVUHĂ HFWDFRQVHUYDtive, innovative approach to address the looming crisis. You can hear more from Inglis by watching the provocative documentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;Merchants of Doubt,â&#x20AC;? DYDLODEOHRQ1HWĂ L[ So once again, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminded of the dangers of painting any group with a broad brush.

Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kirk Bangstad, of Woodruff, stopped in Shell Lake on Tuesday, Oct. 6. In July, Bangstad announced his candidacy as a Democrat for the 7th Congressional District seat up in the fall 2016 election. Originally from Stevens Point, Bangstad attended Harvard and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in government but went on to become a management consultant for technology companies. Bangstad attended graduate school at Northwestern University for vocal studies and pursued a professional singing career. During that time, he met his wife, Elizabeth, and the couple settled in Woodruff to be close to family after she was diagnosed with cancer. Bangstad stopped in Shell Lake while he was on a fourcounty tour getting feedback from voters on what their issues are. He plans to visit all 26 counties in the district and is holding listening sessions for voters to tell him about their concerns. Bangstad lists four points of why he decided to run for RIĂ&#x20AC;FH7KHVHLQFOXGHWKHQHHGWRLQFUHDVHWKHLQIUDVWUXFture of Northwest Wisconsin, namely the broadband access and roads, and to make secondary education more affordable. Bangstad also wants to reinvestment in science, explaining he has learned the powerful role science plays in developing new treatments, like the life-sustaining cancer treatments his wife is going through. He also thinks the American people need a government that accepts the climate is changing, the science behind it and that now is the time to prepare for its impacts. He also wants to see government strengthen the economy and help companies create better-paying jobs.

Farm Credit financial institutions provide the majority of agricultural lending services for farmers. Wisconsin is home to four Farm Credit cooperatives. Food cooperatives are driven by local consumer demand. Co-op conversions in rural and underserved areas in Wisconsin are helping keep grocery stores open and healthy options more readily available. Livestock and genetics cooperatives have attracted a large international market to Wisconsin. Two of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top five cattle breeding cooperatives are headquartered in the state. Mutual insurance companies have provided low-cost services and kept premium dollars in the local economy for over 140 years. Today, they provide property insurance to approximately 100,000 residents. Grain, farm supply, and fuel co-ops pool purchasing power to drive down costs and create better market opportunities. Cooperatives have proactively invested in infrastructure and new technology to improve access. Housing cooperatives offer affordable options in high-cost areas. There are more than 50 registered housing cooperatives in Wisconsin. Health care cooperatives provide a mix of local clinics, services, and insurance. Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-rated health care plan is Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin. Processing and marketing co-ops focus on maximizing profit for their farmer-members. Wisconsin is home to CROPP Cooperative, the largest organic farming cooperative in the nation, better known as Organic Valley. Telephone co-ops were established to provide quality, affordable telecommunications service in mostly rural areas. They have been pioneers in bringing broadband to underserved communities in Wisconsin. 0

Father of Webster hockey honored Jack Neuer receives honor for helping to bring hockey to area Marty Seeger|Staff writer WEBSTER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to overlook the contributions and impact that Websterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jack Neuer had on the community and players he coached for nearly two decades, starting in 1972 and most of the 1980s. Although Neuer, at age 82, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel he deserves all the credit that came to him recently at a banquet held in his honor, he coached the Webster hockey team to 10 Indianhead playoff championships, 13 regular season crowns, eight state tournament appearances and four state titles. The hockey team during those years was part of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association, and Neuer was instrumental in getting the hockey team going starting in 1972. The banquet held at Ike Walton Lodge Saturday, Oct. 3, ZDVDFXOPLQDWLRQRIDGD\Ă&#x20AC;OOHGZLWKD round of golf on Fox Run Golf Course, followed by the banquet where former players, family members and several others shared memories of Neuerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied hockey coaching career. The hockey team earned the state championship three years in a row in 1986, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;87 and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;88. Many of the hockey players were also on the Webster football team that won the state championship in 87 too, as Neuer recalled, including his two sons, Aaron and Louie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the hockey players played on that team. And the girls won volleyball championships too,â&#x20AC;? recalled Neuer, in 1985 and 1986. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good bunch, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure.â&#x20AC;? It was a good decade to be a Webster Tiger sports fan no doubt, but Neuer loved hockey most. For a long stretch he was a youth coach as well, and spent countless hours keeping the outdoor rink up and running. ´,GLGDORWRIULQNĂ RRGLQJDQGVKRYHOing. It was a labor of love. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great game, that hockey,â&#x20AC;? Neuer said. When the outdoor rink in Webster got up and running, the community helped get things going along with the Lions Club and a $400 donation from a member of the community. The school district donated the site and electricity went through it, while the village of Webster donated the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent a lot of hours on it. Making ice,â&#x20AC;? Neuer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great time.â&#x20AC;? By the 1980s, according to the WAHA website, there were more than 400 teams, eventually growing to 1,200 teams and 18,000 players and coaches. It was one of the largest memberships in the country. Neuer said that Grantsburg and Spooner had teams a couple years before Webster, but it soon grew to include more teams in Burnett and Polk counties and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started about 1972. But they had hockey way back in the 1920s. And after the war, the boys came back from the ser-

Neuer said. Neuer took a leave of absence in the late 1980s and came back a year later to coach another couple of years. Not long after, Webster needed the rink space to build a new addition to the elementary school. That would be the last of the outdoor hockey scene as Webster, Siren and Spooner would co-op together, and the Lodge Center Arena in Siren that was built in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s would bring area schools together for the larger co-op fans see today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we all realized that we were kind of the last of the Mohicans as far as outside ice,â&#x20AC;? Neuer said. And we all enjoyed that, the fact that we were an outdoor team.â&#x20AC;? There are fewer outdoor teams today as indoor ice arenas have become commonplace, but Neuer said he thoroughly enjoyed getting back together again with the athletes and others who helped pave the way to where hockey is today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just went over and through the years.

On Friday, Sept. 25, Hansford was hunting with what he called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the southern Freer crew,â&#x20AC;? between Little and Big Blake lakes in Polk County. Earlier in the morning, a member of the hunting crew was successful in shooting one black bear before Hansford got his chance. One of the local farmers in the area had located a huge track on his driveway, and soon after, Frederic resident Bruce Potter brought his dog Smokey to the location to try and pick up the scent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took about an hour for the hound to pick up the scent,â&#x20AC;? Hansford explained. Once Smokey was on the track, Willy, another hound of Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was sent in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smokey chased it for a while, and then Willy, his other dog, got in on it, and then the other dogs all worked together on it,â&#x20AC;?

Senior center building future may hinge on tests

Deteriorated concrete review may lead to structural decisions

Greg Marsten | Staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At the regular meeting of the St. Croix Falls Common Council on Monday, Oct. 12, it became apparent that the future of the St. Croix Valley Senior Center may hinge on the results of a more in-depth structural review by a civil engineer, set to take place shortly after press time this week. The council is hoping to eliminate any question marks on the structural integrity of the walls after water damage and deterioration, which may lead to expensive Ă&#x20AC;[HVHYHQEHIRUHDVLQJOHEORFNZRXOGEH laid to repair the walls. The council was tentative about an estimate of $13,300 to potentially create a reconstruction scope of work, should the damage force an extensive reconstruction on the east, north and a possibly the south walls. An earlier review led to the city paying approximately $1,500 to shore up the east end of the building, just in case. That area is also closed to the public. ´:RZ :KDW DUH RXU RWKHU RSWLRQV"Âľ asked Mayor Brian Blesi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, you repair the site or you close the site,â&#x20AC;? city Administrator Joel Peck VWDWHGĂ DWO\ The council approved having the city crew excavate a portion of the east wall, to reveal how far down the water damage may go. They will also rely on a review of WKHVRXWKZDOOZKLFKLVDWLJKWĂ&#x20AC;WEHWZHHQ the neighboring 136 Vintage to the south. The possible cost left many on the council unsure, but pressured to make a decision before the cold weather adds potential snow loads to the roof in question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot to be designed there (if the damage needs to be repaired),â&#x20AC;? stated MSA engineer Jon Herdegan, who addressed the estimate questions. Peck concurred, noting that if the damage is very bad, they would need to make GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWDQGSRVVLEO\YHU\H[SHQVLYHGHcisions on the future of the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot band-aid this building,â&#x20AC;? Peck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve addressed the health and safety concerns, but we need to prevent a scenario where the wall blows in.â&#x20AC;? That structural review of the former Masonic Lodge building at 140 Washington St. is meant to settle once and for all

A less extensive structural investigation last month by MSA Engineering was meant to investigate the depth of the damage, and whether it was less than serious. That report led to the shore-up order, and led to even deeper looks at the damage. Blesi said the latest structural review will reveal if the city should go ahead with the $13,300 design plans, which led the council to shudder at the possible costs of repair, on top of the nearly $20,000 they would have invested before any reconstruction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doing nothing is not an option,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said with a nod. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And really, it could cost $20,000 to demolish (the building) if needed.â&#x20AC;? Blesi added that in discussions with the St. Croix Valley Senior Center members, they were committed to the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But really if the south wall is bad, also, well, then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said.

slightly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in front of the council for several years,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said. While the debt would be cleared, the move does negatively affect the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reserves, as well as their fund balance, which the same audit stated was notably lower than the state recommended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a debt to yourself, it will continue to be noted in audits,â&#x20AC;? Peck said, pointing to a catch-22 of sorts in that the move does clear the debt but also reduces the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fund balance, which may offset any gains in things like bond reviews or credit ratings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The city currently) has a bond rating of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Peck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it can go higher.â&#x20AC;? In the end, the council approved clearing the debt off the books at one time, buy applying $41,283 to the library debt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cleared it up. We can stop talking about it now,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said. There was an extensive discussion on whether the city should purchase a soFDOOHG´KRRNWUXFNÂľWRĂ&#x20AC;OOLQWKHJDSVRQ WKHFLW\Ă HHWIRUWKLQJVOLNHVQRZKDXOLQJ and most importantly, wastewater treatment plant sludge hauling.

Currently, the city pays a transfer serThe discussion went in several directions, as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;paper debtâ&#x20AC;? has been an vice to do the hauling, which costs apDVWHULVNRQWKHFLW\¡VĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDODXGLWVIRU proximately $500 per week.

Peck said. The city has also been forced to rent a snow hauling truck for clearing the downtown streets and sidewalks, going through the county highway department. That move not only costs in rental, but takes two employees to carry out the picking up and delivery of the truck back and forth to the Polk County Highway Shop in Balsam Lake.

The remainder of the funds will come either from the State Trust Fund or some local institution, whichever has the lowest interest rates.

After several weeks of reconsideration for review, the council approved going with their original suggested website management firm, GovOffice, for city website maintenance and updating, at a cost of $8,670, which the city had already budgeted for this year. The council approved a picnic liquor license for a Polk County Democrats fundraising event at the city library for next month. Even with the approval by the council, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library board will need to review their current policy regarding broader rules on serving liquor at the library, as well as allowing fundraising, which has a FRQĂ LFWLQJSROLF\UHJDUGLQJRYHUDOOXVHRI the library or separate conference rooms.

Danielle Danford | Staff writer SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Often described as grassroots democracy in action, annual meetings for school districts give authority to a districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school board to perform duties charged by state statute including the care, control and management of the property and affairs of the school district. The Spooner Area School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting will occur on Monday, Oct. 19, and will start at 4:30 p.m. for voter signing and voting card distribution, as all votes will be done via a paper voting process this year. At 6 p.m. the budget hearing will start, at 6:30 p.m. the annual meeting will start and at 7:30 p.m. a regular board meeting is scheduled to start. Electors at the annual meeting may vote on a slew of resolutions from setting board members compensation to voting on a tax for the operation of the schools, each is important to maintaining the operation of the school district. During this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting, the electors of the Spooner Area School District will vote on whether to increase the existing sevenmember board to an 11-member board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If at the meeting the petition requested to change the number of school board members is adopted by a majority vote, the school board members shall be elected in the next school board election,â&#x20AC;? said Dan Rossmiller, government relations director with the Wisconsin Association of School Boards. School board elections take place during the April spring election. The next spring election will be April 5, 2016. If necessary there would be a primary held on Feb. 16, 2016. Rossmiller explained that common rea-

son school districts choose to increase the number of members on the school board is the district sees an increase in population. A news release from Families United for Spooner Excellence, the group that circulated the petition for the school board member increase, lists seven reasons for increasing the board size. Those reasons are assist present board with cost-saving solutions for budget concerns, explore effective ways to deal with decreased state funding for public education, allow citizens to participate in the workings of government to ensure proper public input when addressing compensation of board members, improve community relations through increased transparency and open dialogue, develop a comprehensive plan to address high student open enrollment out of the district, create a positive school environment to encourage staff retention, reduce time commitment overloads and improve effectiveness of board committee assignment. If the majority of electors votes in favor of the increase, Rossmiller explained the district has to develop a plan for the number of school board members to be elected each year and distribute their length of WHUPLQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHDVHYHQO\DVSRVVLEOHZLWK the existing school board members retaining their terms.Current Spooner School Board members and their term years: Robert Hoellen 2013-2016 Kyle Pierce 2013-2016 Randy McQuade 2014-2017 Paul Goellner 2014-2017 John Hedlund 2014-2017 Christina Martin 2015-2018 Clay Halverson 2015-2018

Patchy Sanders to perform at the Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shed SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The folk orchestra Patchy Sanders, traveling from their hometown of Ashland, Ore., through the Midwest, up to New England, down to North Carolina, and through Colorado on their return home, will be performing at The Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shed in Shell Lake on

Wednesday, Oct. 21. The concert begins at 6 p.m. Working with eclectic themes from dreams, fairytales, afterlife and wildlands, Patchy Sanders crafts stream-of-consciousness story music with an emphasis on melody and lyrics. These arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t songs

as much as they are musical emotional experiences conjuring otherworldly jourQH\V%\DQGODUJHWKHLUPXVLFĂ&#x20AC;WVDVZHOO in an acoustic art house as it does in a farmhouse hootenanny hoedown or main stage at a pop festival. Along the way they will be spreading

the message of Bernie Sanders, a candidate who shares a common surname while complementing the collective Patchy political opinion. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from Patchy Sanders

Fall colors in Straight Lake State Park North Woods beauty in our backyard Gregg Westigard | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sunday, Oct. 11, was a perfect autumn day for a hike and many people made Straight Lake State Park east of Luck their destination for a day in the woods, hiking through six miles of prairie, rocky glens and deep woods, passing two quiet lakes and a river rich with beaver ponds. About three dozen hikers young and old, with their dogs, turned out for a Fall Colors Family Hike hosted by the Indianhead Chapter of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. They shared their walk with a host of others out for picnics, bird-watching, and the enjoyment of 4,000 pristine acres of land to explore. Straight Lake State Park and westernmost Wildlife Area at four miles east of Luck. It is one of the newest natural preserves in the state. The Ice Age Trail, a national hiking trail that crosses Wisconsin linking the St. Croix River with Lake Michigan, passes through the park and provides an easy access to the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural features. The park is in the development stage and is still open to the public without a state park fee. There are four entries to the Ice Age Trail and the park. The westernmost point is on 140th Street a half mile south of CTH W. The trail heads east through a prairie of native grasses before entering the woods along a bubbling section of the Trade River. This section goes past lakes and ponds and climbs through a rocky glen lined with ferns before emerging along a section of the old Clam )DOOV7UDLOWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWFURVVFRXQW\KLJKZD\HVWDEOLVKHGLQWKHV Parking on 140th is along the road. The next entrance is on 280th Avenue just west of the corner with 130th Street. From the parking lot next to an old school house hikers can head back north to 140th or head south to the shores of Straight Lake, a large motor-less lake that is home to eagles, swans and otters. This stretch is probably the most visited, with a half mile of lakeshore on one side and an old growth hardwood forest on the other. There is a set of rock steps where the trail crosses the RXWOHWZKHUHWKH6WUDLJKW5LYHUĂ RZVRXWRIWKHODNH Just past the outlet, an old road heads south to a parking lot on 120th street while the trail continues east. That parking lot, the main entrance to the state park, is a mile north of Hwy. 48. The path from the lot goes north to the trail passing between Straight Lake and Rainbow Lake, a hill-rimmed body of water popular for Ă&#x20AC;VKLQJ7KH,FH$JH7UDLOKHDGVHDVWIURPKHUHIRUWZRPLOHVIROlowing the crest of a tunnel channel, a glacial feature from the last Wisconsin ice age. The trail is high above the river and its many new ponds being built by beavers. The section ends at a parking lot on CTH I after sharing the last stretch with a herd of cows. Falls colors may be fading but the park is still there for all to enjoy.

2015 VETS RIDE

Thank you all for making this year’s Veterans ATV/UTV Ride on the Gandy Dancer Trail a great success. We could not have accomplished it without the help of all our volunteers and sponsors. Thank you to all the members of Larry Koch’s family attending the ceremony and ride, which he helped organize. Special thanks go to Webb Lake Post #403 and Dan Kaye, “One Nation Under God,” for our Opening Ceremony.
