Luck woman airlifted after Hwy. 46 accident POLK COUNTY - A Luck woman was airlifted Thursday morning, Oct. 15, to a Twin Cities hospital after a two-vehicle accident on Hwy. 46 near Amery. According to a statement from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Tammy S. Fjorden, 49, was driving south on Hwy. 46 when she slowed and stopped for a deer crossing the road. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when another vehicle struck Fjordenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle, pushing it into the west ditch. Both Fjorden and the driver of the second vehicle, Stacey M. Ptacek, 34, of Knapp, were transported to Amery Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries. Fjorden, listed as suffering lifethreatening injuries, was then airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. The accident occurred at approximately 7 a.m. north of the intersection of Hwy. 46 and Birchwood Lane. Agencies responding to the scene were the Polk County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department and Amery Municipal Ambulance Service. Both drivers were listed as wearing seat belts. - Gary King with information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. This story appeared on our website, leadernewsroom.com, on Thursday, Oct. 15.

- Polk County District Attorney Dan Steffen according to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission, which regulates municipal utility rates. According to the PSC, between 2007 and July 2012, the village billed the country club at a rate of 87 cents per 100 cubic IHHWRIZDWHUTXDUWHUO\DIWHUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW gallons of usage. At the time, the PSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authorized rate ZDVSHUFXELFIHHWDIWHUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW 4,000 cubic feet of water used per quarter, which is a different way to measure when to apply the rates, as 4,000 cubic feet amounts to just under 30,000 gallons. The village didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start billing the country club at the PSC-authorized rate until the third quarter of 2012, which led them to request a credit of $9,250, based on a claim that it had been billed a higher incorrect amount since 2007. The village complied with the rebate request several years ago, which proved to be against state statute. According to a previous account of the Frederic water issue in the Leader, state statutes prohibit water customers from soliciting or receiving any rebate from a public utility for a service based on rates that are less than authorized. A public utility also is prohibited from giving such a credit. The practices are viewed as unjust discrimination under law. The rates between the village and the country club were allegedly negotiated by Wondra, who was village administrator at the time, and those negotiations went outside the scope of the Frederic Water Commission. That was apparently where some of the allegations hinged. After the discrepancies were looked into by the PSC, they ordered the Frederic Water Commission to bill the country club IRUDSXEOLFĂ&#x20AC;UHSURWHFWLRQFKDUJH that had not been assessed for two years, as well as the $9,250 credit the utility gave the golf course, which was not allowed.

The records are best kept in the village hall, they said. Because the

item was addressed during public comments and was not listed on the agenda, the issue will be forwarded for committee review. 9LOODJH 7UXVWHHV 'DYH 'RW\ 6U DQG Rudy Mothes seemed to indicate support for allowing outdoor wood furnaces. Currently the village has an ordinance allowing for only pellet-type outdoor stoves. Concerns regarding outdoor furnaces center around ground-hovering chimney smoke and general aesthetics. Doty Sr. thought the smoke issue could be alleviated as long as standards for chimney stack heights were taken into account. Some local residents have advocated a change in the ordinance allowing for outdoor wood-burning stoves. Mothes indicated that such a change seems reasonable. The village board forwarded the issue to the public safety committee. Police Chief Chris Sybers noted that

with kids going back to school he has partnered with the villages of Grantsburg and Webster and St. Croix Tribe to hand out ice-cream coupons to student drivers at the local schools who were following proper driving practices.

Harsdorf weighs in Senator discusses drug testing, unemployment, heroin, Gov. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitions and more *UHJ0DUVWHQ_ Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; State Sen.

Harsdorf said, noting that some of the previous reforms are beginning to show promise and tangible numbers, and she even referred to the long-discussed Gov. Scott Walker promise of creating 250,000 jobs. Harsdorf claims the job creation numbers are starting to come to fruition, and while Wisconsin joins the rest of the nation in slow but steady job growth and creation, Wisconsin continues to match or exceed the national numbers. ´:H¡YHKDGDERXWQHZMREVFUHDWHGVLQFHÂľVKHVDLG´7KHHQFRXUDJing, exciting number there is 40,000 new jobs between August 2014 and August 2015, essentially the last year.â&#x20AC;?

However, according to Harsdorf, there is a portion of the drug testing law that the DWD is moving forward with drafting administrative rules, which would affect those individuals applying for unemployment insurance that were offered a job and failed a drug test. ´7KLV LV IRU DEOHERGLHG ZRUNLQJDJH DGXOWVÂľ+DUVGRUIFODULĂ&#x20AC;HG´,I\RXGRQ¡W pass the drug test, and agree to treatment, then there (would be) no consequences.â&#x20AC;? While the drug testing issue is technically pending, she said they are working hard on job initiatives that are going to draw directly from the recent economic roundtables held by the Senate Committee on Economic Development and Commerce, including one in Menomonie on

Monday, Oct. 12. Harsdorf said the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on jobs and economic growth have pushed the state up in job creation, and the state has improved under several national rankings of the best places to start or grow a business. She also pointed to the latest unemployment numbers, which have the state rate dropping to 4.5 percent from over 8 percent in 2010, and how Wisconsin has been consistently below the national average. ´7KH LPSURYLQJ MREV Ă&#x20AC;JXUHV DQG HFRnomic conditions in Wisconsin are encouraging, but we need to continue to look at how we can do better,â&#x20AC;? she said. 6KHVDLGWKHODWHVWMREVLQLWLDWLYH´EXLOGV on past effortsâ&#x20AC;? of the Legislature to encourage job growth and investment in Wisconsin, as well as encouraging smallbusiness owners and entrepreneurs, improving worker training and reducing regulatory red tape, while bringing in more regional and local investment.

This month, a resolution that creates a no-parking zone on the west side of the building was approved. The west side is where the main entrance is located, and the resolution designates a 130-foot stretch of 7th Street as no parking. The east side of the street in that area will be designated for pick up and drop off only. Signs will be put up and the curb painted to indicate this. The purpose of the changes is to allevi-

The board approved the changes, in total, which amount to an additional $548,977 on the county levy, and an additional $372,000 in asset fund items. The board approved a resolution honoring the life and service of former supervisor, legislator and town board Supervisor David E. Paulson of the Town of Black Brook, who died after a lifetime of service to the town, county and state. The county board approved a two-year labor agreement with the Wisconsin Professional Police Association - Field Service Association, which allows for a 3-percent increase next year, 2-percent the next year. After some discussion, the board approved a resolution to write off uncollected bills from Golden Age Manor, totaling $110,951. The county has tried to collect the funds in several ways, but has proved unsuccessful, in part due to people with large care bills who have passed away with little or no assets. ´,W¡V XQGHU XQIRUWXQDWH FLUFXPVWDQFHV but they are uncollectible,â&#x20AC;? stated Fuge. The board will see a nearly $100,000 savings in interest from settling a 2007 general obligation bond they issued for $3.5 million. That was meant to complete a number of projects and has $1.6 million still outstanding. The county has an option to buy off the remainder to see a savings in future interest payments. ´%\'HFHPEHURIZHSD\PLOlion in cash to burn the bond,â&#x20AC;? Frey said. They passed two resolutions to go ahead with the early payoff. The board set their necessary 2016 budget hearing numbers and dates for publication, including the aforementioned additions and changes. ´7KHVHDUHP\EDVHUHFRPPHQGDWLRQV for the cheapest costs to run the county for the next year,â&#x20AC;?

The board approved a public hearing for the budget on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 6:30 p.m., with the regular board meeting to follow.

BURNETT COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Healthy Burnett has joined the effort to raise awareness about preventing bullying by organizing a chalk-art competition with local schools the week of Oct. 19-23. Organizations around the world, from Burnett County to New Zealand, are working to raise awareness about how to prevent bullying in their communities. Nationally, one in four students will experience bullying this year, and Burnett County is no different. According to the 2014 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 29 percent of high school students reported being bullied in the previous 12 months. Healthy Burnett, the community coalition formed by the Burnett County Department of Health and Human Services - Public Health and Burnett Medical Center in 2013 to address the top health needs in Burnett County, has taken this opportunity to team with local schools to raise awareness about this imSRUWDQWLVVXH´7KHFKDONDUW competition is an opportunity to partner with area schools to spread the message of taking action to prevent bullying through outdoor artistic drawing,â&#x20AC;? said Marceleen Mosher, development and communications coordinator of Northwest Passage, a youth mental health treatment organization serving at-risk teens in Burnett County and Wisconsin, and one of the organizations actively involved in +HDOWK\ %XUQHWW  ´%XOO\LQJ can affect everyone, and intervention is equally important to help those who are bullied as well as those who bully.â&#x20AC;? According to Pacerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Bullying Prevention Center, 57 percent of bullying situations end when a peer intervenes. Guided by this fact, Healthy Burnett chose a positive message for the schools to incorporate into their drawings that will encourage students to rally around one simple action: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait. Make a difference today. This statement urges students to intervene in bullying situations by standing up to bullying and by reaching out to those who are harmed by bullying. The school districts of Webster, Siren, Grantsburg, Northwest Journey and Northwest Passageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prairieview are all participating in the chalk-art competition. Students will create the drawings on their campuses throughout the week of Oct. 19-23. The completed chalk-art drawings will be evaluated by a panel of judges. The winning school will receive $300 to use toward department needs. The completed drawings can be viewed on Healthy Burnettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page at the end of the week. The chalk-art competition is organized by the Healthy Burnett Stigma Squad, a volunteer committee devoted to breaking the negative stigma surrounding mental health, the top health need identiĂ&#x20AC;HGLQWKHFRPPXQLW\KHDOWK needs assessment conducted by the Burnett County DHHSPublic Health and Burnett Medical Center in 2013. The project is being funded in part by a grant from Burnett Dairy Cooperative and the CoBankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sharing Success program.

THANK YOU

The family of Ardis Marek would like to acknowledge and thank Dr. Ingalls and his wonderful staff who looked after her health for so many years, and to Dr. Khan and the dedicated nurses at St. Croix Hospital who saw to her needs and comfort so compassionately in her last days. We knew she was in good hands. God bless you all. To all who lent a sympathetic shoulder, called with a loving memory or wrote a kind word, thank you so much. Nothing can take away our grief, but knowing how much she was loved is a great consolation. She will be dearly missed.  3W
