St. Croix Festival Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall production is now in rehearsal, celebrating the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25th anniversary of producing professional theater in the upper St. Croix River Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noises Off,â&#x20AC;? a comedy written by Michael Frayn, promises to be an evening of surprises and laughter. The New York Times has described the play as â&#x20AC;&#x153;[t]he most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, wellknown romp is a festival of delirium.â&#x20AC;?

Add overworked and sleepdeprived stage manager Tim, played by Josiah Laubenstein, the overly helpful and passive-aggressive young actress Belinda, played by Kim Braun, and elderly actor Selsdon in endless pursuit of the backstage whiskey bottle, played by Ed Moersfelder, and the play within the play inevitably leaves the rails.

Goose hunting season approved in Luck

Board heeds plea from local business owner

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer /8&. ² 7KH YLOODJH RI /XFN KDV Ă&#x20AC;nalized its ordinance for hunting geese within the village limits, so there should be goose on the table for at least some people this holiday season. Two days of hunting will be offered this fall, according to the ordinance approved at the Wednesday, Sept. 9, meeting of the Luck Village Board. On two Saturdays, Oct. 3 and 10, four groups of two individuals will be allowed to hunt in the areas around Big Butternut Lake and the golf course. Only those individuals who have applied for and received a permit from the Luck Police Department will be eligible to hunt. Permits will be given out to individuals, but hunters will work in groups of two, and will be assigned a designated place to hunt. Owners of private property may restrict who they allow on their property, but anyone hunting must apply for a permit. In order to receive a permit, applicants must have the required federal and state licenses and cannot have been convicted of any offense that prohibits them from FDUU\LQJDĂ&#x20AC;UHDUP Permits for the 2015 season will be awarded by random drawing, the ordinance states, and the drawing will take place Wednesday, Sept. 30. Permit holders are to let the police department know how many geese they harvest so that an evaluation can be made on the effectiveness of the hunt in curbing the goose population. The numerous geese that live around Big Butternut Lake have created a public health hazard, particularly at the school and golf course. The beach has been closed at different times throughout the year due to high bacteria counts in the water.

Since that time, the truck has been in Luck every Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Hwy. 48 near the intersection with Hwy. 35. In September, however, Adventures Rollinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Foods applied to move its location to Main Street, in front of the former Hog Wild, and this brought a longtime Main Street business owner to the meeting. Janell Britton, owner of Janellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main 'LVKLGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;HGKHUVHOIDVD/XFNWD[SD\HU who has been running her business for 14 years.

Her business is closed Mondays and Tuesdays, she said, and now on Wednesdays it will be competing with the Rollinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Foods truck. Board Trustee Ross Anderson is a partner in Van Meterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Meats, also located on Main Street, and Britton used that business as an example, asking how well it would go over if a mobile meat truck came into town. She also pointed out that, during a bad snowstorm last year when the village crew was out working

The license amendment allowing the food truck to change its location was listed on the agenda at a point when it could have been approved with a number of routine items. The board chose to move it to later in the agenda so it could be discussed separately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would have to agree with (Britton),â&#x20AC;? said Trustee Alan Tomlinson. He noted that there are currently seven places in the village that serve lunch, and each pays taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (Adventures Rollinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Foods) donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay taxes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They take their money here and run.â&#x20AC;? The original permit is effective from Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2015. The board took no action to change the address, so the food truck can continue to operate at its original location.

providing an update on county board activities. She noted that the annual report for all county departments, as well as the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;state of the countyâ&#x20AC;? and audit reports, will soon be available on the county website. Hard copies are currently available at the government center. Some of the highlights from the annual report that Schmidt touched on included the fact that employment in Polk County is up from last year, as is sales tax revenue. The county has a one-half-percent sales tax, she said, and much of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increase came from auto sales. Sales tax revenue, Schmidt added, directly helps reduce property taxes. Another point of good news is that property values are slowly creeping EDFN XS DIWHU GURSSLQJ QHDUO\  ELOlion countywide. The population also dropped during the recession, said Schmidt, but that is now starting to climb again and the projected 2020 population is 50,000.

Frederic sets standard sewer rate Mary Stirrat | Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The regular monthly meeting of the Frederic Village Board, held Monday evening, Sept. 14, was short and uneventful, with recommendations from the public works committee topping the agenda. The committee made two recommendations to the board, both of which were DSSURYHG7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWUHFRPPHQGDWLRQZDV to set a standard sewer volume charge of  SHU  FXELF IHHW IRU DOO )UHGHULF utility accounts, in order to have a con-

Secondly, at the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation, the board voted to temporarily suspend the surface water discharge option from DNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit for the wastewater treatment facility. The surface water discharge option hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been used in years, according to public works director Ken Hackett, and maintaining the option comes with a VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWFRVW7KHYLOODJHFDQXVHWKH option, however, in the event of an emergency.

Polk zoning ordinance approved by county board

Gregg Westigard | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The new Polk County Zoning Ordinance was approved by the county board Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the monthly board meeting. The 74-page ordinance now goes to the 24 towns in the county for a year for their review and action. The comprehensive revision of the existing land-use resolutions will be effective in September 2016. The board enacted the ordinance by a vote of 10-4. During the coming year each town in the county will decide whether to adopt the county ordinance, adopt their own zoning ordinance or have no zoning regulations. Regardless of their decisions, the shoreland regulations within the new ordinance will apply to all the towns. Villages and cities set their own zoning regulations and are not part of the review process. Supervisors Patricia Schmidt, Josh Hallberg, Russ Arcand and Joe Demulling cast the negative votes. Ken Sample was absent for the vote which was supported by the remaining 10 board members in a roll call vote. Schmidt made an impassioned plea for the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakes in explaining her negative vote for an ordinance that she has supported. She said that she is a strong supporter of all things Wisconsin but this is an area where Minnesota has taken the lead. Schmidt said that Minnesota is walking all over Wisconsin when it comes to water quality issues. She said that Minnesota Gov. Mark

Dayton is taking a strong stand on water quality issues while Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a bill that takes away the protection of water quality. Schmidt went on to compare the actions in Minnesota to create shoreland buffers along waterways and shores with Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action to take away the powers to create buffers. She said studies show that buffers intercept 50 percent of runoff from entering lakes and rivers. Schmidt said that rivers and lakes are a major asset of the county, with lake residents paying additional property taxes because of the quality of the lakes. She said that is all down the drain now after the passage of the budget bill Act 55 and concluded by saying that she is more than disgusted with the legislators and the governor. Hallberg raised objections to the removal of the setback-averaging section from the draft ordinance. He asked why the section was deleted by the conservation FRPPLWWHHDWLWVPHHWLQJ6HSWZKHUHWKHODVWĂ&#x20AC;QDOUHYLsion was approved. Hallberg was following up on comments made by county resident Chris Nelson who said that setback averaging has been allowed in the county for over 20 years. Hallberg did not make a motion to amend the ordinance by inserting the deleted setback section. The action Tuesday is the latest step in a county land use revision process that started in March 2010. Over that period the new zoning ordinance has been discussed and debated by two ongoing working groups, been reviewed in detail by the current conservation committee and its predecessor property committee, been the subject of a series of public hearings, and reviewed by the Department

of Natural Resources. The state legislative actions this spring in enacting Act 55, the so-called Jarchow changes on shoreland zoning, led to last-minute changes in the ordinance. After the county board enactment Tuesday and the coming review by the towns, the zoning ordinance will effective Sept. 16, 2016.

Research showdown

I

s the Republican drive to limit research using fetal tissue a product of the gerrymandered Wisconsin Legislature? Republicans have a partisan lock on the Legislature thanks to boundary lines they drew in 2011. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, has promised the full Assembly will take up the issue in the October session. An Assembly committee has advanced a bill barring use of new lines of fetal tissue. It would be a felony to use such tissue for research if the bill becomes law. Chancellor Rebecca Blank told a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting it would drastically affect UW-Madison, driving away top researchers and hurting the reputation of the campus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a direct hit,â&#x20AC;? she said. The UWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promising biomedical researchers will go to other universities if their work canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done at Madison, Blank said. She noted that the impact also would be felt in interdisciplinary research. If the teams are broken up with departures, other researchers will go elsewhere, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for the university, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for Wisconsin; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for our citizens here and elsewhere,â&#x20AC;? said Regent Gerald Whitburn, who served in the cabinet of former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing is more important than

old days.â&#x20AC;? The way that our community comes together to help our children be happy, healthy and successful is living proof that these are the good old days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they just keep getting better!

8VHEXLOGLQJIRUFOLQLF After reading the caption about the demolition of the old Webster VFKRRO DW DQ HVWLPDWHG  , am incensed by the callous thought to ruin a perfectly good building that needs only some tender loving care to bring us to the thinking clearly of the need of a hospital (or clinic) nearer to those who live in Webster or the surrounding area. Wasteful destruction is not the answer!

As a human race, we have plowed money into neâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er-do-well cases stadiums, coffee shops that are frequented by moneyed folks - and old landsites are being demolished to be used for a place for art lessons taught to entrepreneur wanna-bes. We as a people should have the integrity to put some forethought in dealing with unused buildings instead of destroying! At the east end of FF there stands a building that could be replaced to become a mall or an art studio! In the thinking mode, the school is the answer to an actual clinic/hospital! The amount to demolish it is just about the same amount to utilize said building and make some elders very happy to have an amazing facility in their hometown!. City fathers, please consider this proposal.

C  O   N   V  E  R  S  A  T  I  O  N  S Help prevent drug abuse through prescription disposal

D

rug addiction and abuse continues to plague communities across our state. Here in western Wisconsin, we have seen meth and heroin ravage our communities and destroy far too many promising lives. While there remains much work to be done, I am pleased that the state Legislature continues to work with stakeholders in an effort to come up with solutions that seek to save lives and prevent addiction. In speaking with law enforcement, SXEOLFKHDOWKRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVDQGPHGLFDOSURfessionals, one of key areas they reference in combatting addiction is the role of prescription drugs. Easily accessible prescription drugs can be dangerous in their own right, but they also are frequently a gateway for young people into illegal drugs. Finding ways to keep highly addictive prescription drugs out of the hands of our youth and those that are susceptible to addiction is a priority RIWKRVHZRUNLQJWRĂ&#x20AC;JKWGUXJDEXVH One of the most effective ways to re-

WK 'LVWULFW 6HQDWH 6KHLOD+DUVGRUI move the potential of misuse and abuse of prescription drugs is through proper disposal. The Wisconsin Department of Justice has worked together with local law enforcement agencies for several years to conduct Prescription Drug Take-Back Days. These events, which are usually held once in the spring and once in the fall, provide the opportunity for families and households to dispose of unused prescription medications in a secure and environmentally friendly PDQQHU,WLVLPSRUWDQWWRQHYHUĂ XVK or pour unused prescription drugs down the drain, as the pharmaceuticals can enter our drinking water supply or affect our lakes and streams. The next Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17. In addition to the Department of

Justiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts, a number of local law enforcement agencies sponsor drug take-back programs year-round or provide permanent prescription drug drop ER[HVDWWKHLURIĂ&#x20AC;FHV,HQFRXUDJHWKRVH interested in getting rid of old prescription drugs to contact their local police or VKHULII¡VGHSDUWPHQWVWRĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWDERXW local drop-off sites for Prescription Drug 7DNH%DFN'D\RUWRĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWLIWKHUHLV a permanent prescription drug disposal program in your community. As a follow-up to a number of bills the state Legislature passed last session LQRXUĂ&#x20AC;JKWDJDLQVWGUXJDEXVHDQGDGdiction, I am working with Rep. John Nygren on legislation seeking to improve prescription drug dispensing in Wisconsin to prevent highly addictive and powerful medications from being abuses. The two bills I will be authoring in the state Senate propose changes to the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, a tool used by physicians and pharmacists to prevent the overprescribing of medications and to keep individuals from â&#x20AC;&#x153;doctor shoppingâ&#x20AC;? for multiple prescriptions. One of the bills changes the requirement that the PDMP be updated within 24 hours of

the dispensing of a monitored prescription drug, rather than seven days under current law, to ensure doctors have the most up-to-date information. The second bill would improve communication between law enforcement, health-care providers and the PDMP when a prescription medication is found at a crime scene or drug overdose. Two additional bills on prescription drug medication will also be brought forward that would improve oversight of pain clinics to prevent â&#x20AC;&#x153;pill millsâ&#x20AC;? and that would provide tools to better assess the effectiveness of methadone clinics. Methadone is a drug assisted treatment option for those addicted to heroin. These four bills are an extension of the HOPE package passed by the state Legislature last session that began addressing the heroin epidemic, which included enacting a Good Samaritan law and authorizing emergency responders to administer medication that counteracts heroin overdoses. It is expected that these new bills will be taken up by the state Legislature in the coming weeks as the fall legislative session begins.

the mighty (muddy?) Mississippi one more time, and we found ourselves in the heart of the beast at rush hour. Not my thing, really, but Red Rose was unfazed, responding with vigor by scooting around any potential tight spots as we made our way to the city center. This time, it was me who needed a dose of petrol, and we both craved a break in WKHDFWLRQ,PDJLQHP\VXUSULVHDWĂ&#x20AC;QGing a Byerlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grocery store with a little Starbucks inside it right there in the innermost reaches of downtown. Back on the road, we scooted up a long incline and soon those gold horses atop the state Capitol building came into view. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made the perilous journey right through the heart of the city, and now we were feeling free again, free to wind our way north and west on the back streets, with no map to guide us, to a place called Alta Vista, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;view from above.â&#x20AC;? After a night of laughter, music and old stories, I climbed back on my little steed, and we set out in the new morning. The air felt fresh and clean as once again we found ourselves in rural Washington County, feeling our way to the border, eager to get back to our state and roads familiar to us. The St. Croix looked particularly blue and beautiful at our midday crossing back over to Wisconsin, land that I love. North of Osceola, we picked up River Road, a rolling, rollicking ride of twists and turns and ups and downs through woods and clearings, which eventually deposited us back on Hwy. 35 just south of St. Croix Falls. Though I would never tell Red Rose, I like this road even better on a bicycle.

In St. Croix Falls, we paused to look at the power of the river at the Overlook, then climbed our way out of town heading east past the Polk County Fairgrounds. The wind had kicked up pretty strong from the northwest, and the mix of woods and open land meant that we would get blown about when we least expected it, and while we never achieved liftoff, the possibility was always there. Top speed was 35 mph as we came into Frederic from the south, VWRSSLQJRQFHPRUHWRĂ&#x20AC;OOWKHWDQN hers, not mine. By early afternoon, we were winding around Dunham Lake, and then coming into Siren from the west. From there, it was Old 35 to Webster, then the back roads to the old homestead. Red Rose snapped and crackled as I dismounted, her little engine cooling in the shade of the garage after what for her must have been an exhausting ride. She accomplished it all, some 295 miles total, on less than 3 gallons of gas, keeping to her slow, sipping ways right to the end. The days of comfortable riding are dwindling as the temperatures fall out of the 80s and 70s into the 60s and then the 50s, too cool for the little red one. Soon sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back in her winter stall, ZDLWLQJSDWLHQWO\IRUWKRVHĂ&#x20AC;UVWLQWR[Lcatingly warm spring days, with memories of this trip to sustain her through the long, cold winter. Her favorite moment from our recent travels? A nobrainer, she says: When those two Harley guys gave us a wave just this side of somewhere.

Red Rose reprise

ed Rose was raring to go somewhere, anywhere, recently after being cooped up much of the summer waiting for me to get my head screwed on right. When she heard me talking to some old college chums in southern Minnesota, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can get you there.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like that - always game for a challenge, with a top speed of 42 miles per hour. Her little 49cc heart just keeps on beating. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the heart of a stallion! We struck out from home midmorning, enjoying the warming sun and the quiet beauty of rural Burnett and Polk counties. Over the Yellow and Clam rivers, skirting Elbow Lake, following the St. Croix, and by 11 a.m. we were in Osceola, stopping for a little drink of petrol. As my hand slid into my pocket looking for money, I felt my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car NH\V$GHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHORZSRLQW%XWQRZRUries, it turns out that you can overnight just about anything through the good old USPS, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did. After a quick peek at Bridal Falls, we crossed the bridge into Minnesota and began to wind our way down from north to south through rural Washington County. The verdant green byways of the northern half of this county, which take you past lakes and ponds and over winding streams, are a feast for the eye and a balm to the spirit. Who would believe we were only 20 minutes from St. Paul? By 1 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock, we were crossing a brand-new bridge over the mighty Mississip (notice how â&#x20AC;&#x153;muddyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;mightyâ&#x20AC;? sound like the same word when spoken with a southern drawl),

The next morning broke with a heavy thunderstorm, a real gully-washer. Red Rose has no faring and I had no rain suit, so we were forced to wait it out.

When we UHDFKHGWKHWRZQRI1RUWKĂ&#x20AC;HOG0LQQ Red Rose was thirsty again though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d managed to squeeze every last mile, nearly 100 total, out of that little 1-gallon gas tank of hers. By late morning, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d reached our destination, Pat and Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm in Rice County. After a day of visiting, it was time to make our way back north. We headed out in the early afternoon, feeling our way up through Rice and Dakota counties.

The conference match came just two days after the Pirates handed the same Frederic Vikings a 3-1 loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Saturday, we struggled against Grantsburg,â&#x20AC;? said Vikings coach Carrie Kjellberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We passed well and played good defense, but were not able to consistently attack the ball, and against a team as talented as Grantsburg, tips, free balls and roll shots will not get you the points you need to win.â&#x20AC;? The conference game against Frederic has been taking place on a Saturday since 2012. Pirates coach Deb Allaman-Johnson said the Saturday game was scheduled so the Pirates could add an early season tournament to gain experience before entering the regular season against conference opponents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the WIAA limiting volleyball teams to 15 play dates, we were already tied up with 12 conference matches and

three Saturday tournaments. By arranging with Frederic to play a Saturday morning match, we lost an evening home game, but freed up a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;play dateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to add the Menomonie Sprawl at UW-Stout. This tournament has proven to be very valuable in giving us early, high level competition,â&#x20AC;? said Allaman-Johnson. Along with the win over Frederic on Saturday, the Pirates went on to win the rest of their tournament games that included a 2-1 win over Turtle Lake, and 2-0 wins over Prairie Farm and New Richmond. Their loss against Turtle Lake was their only set loss of the day, which was attributed to errors. ´:H ZRQ WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW VHW WKHQ VSXWWHUHG on serve receive, making very uncharacteristic errors due to their strategic and powerful serving.

AllamanJohnson said. Some highlights from the Pirates stat leaders included Cassidy Lee with nine aces, Rhiana Pochman with four solo blocks and four assists, Delia Labatt with 31 digs, along with 30 from Olivia

The Vikings defeated Northwood 2-0, before dropping two games against Prairie Farm, 2-0, and Turtle Lake, 2-0.

Firsttimeout Perched among the white oak on a relatively windless September evening, an audible and unmistakable change in the river could be heard amidst a light northwest wind. These were deer, and they were making their Marty way across to the bean Seeger Ă&#x20AC;HOG WKDW OD\  \DUGV in front of me. It was opening day of the The 2015 archery season and my bow, with an Bottom arrow already nocked, Line was lifted off the hook. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not far from a place where Hay River flows free in Barron County, yet way too far, 100 yards or more, to see what might be crossing. Yet the clopping sound of hooves going up and down in water and disturbing what had been a faint, low gurgle had my heart beating slightly faster than it had earlier in the evening. The afternoon had begun like many hunts before, preparing for big game both mentally and physically. I loosed a few last-minute practice arrows in the backyard to ensure the bow was still slinging arrows like it did a day earlier,

and the process of becoming as scent free as possible was the next step. The ritual has become almost as important as picking the right spot to hunt or the many hours of shooting practice it takes to beFRPH FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQW LQ PDNLQJ D JRRG VKRW At times it seems like the scent-control process, which includes using scent-free shower gels, sprays and even deodorant, are overkill, yet a deerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of smell is one of its greatest defenses, and most hunters like myself are willing to spend the extra cash to do everything to remain scent free. I had made it to my tree stand before 4 p.m., but not before spooking something that headed west and could be heard crashing through the heavy foliage. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the plan and it was a disappointing start to a hunt that was largely based on getting in and out undetected, if no particular deer presented a shot. After settling in, pulling the bow by string toward the perch and wiping down sweat with a scent-free wipe, it felt as though WKHVHDVRQKDGĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOO\EHJXQ and much earlier than it had in the past. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that had it not been for the large buck I have on trail camera, I might not have hit the woods so early. My favorite time of year, like most bow hunters, is nearer the end of October or even early November, but even with the 70-degree temperatures, lush green foliage and mosquitoes, it felt as good to be in a tree as at any other time of year. Two hours passed before I caught the

Ă&#x20AC;UVWJOLPSVHRIPRYHPHQWQHDUWKHHGJH RIWKHEHDQĂ&#x20AC;HOGEXWWKLVYLVLWRUZKLFK had come from the same direction as the crashing sounds I had heard on my way to the stand, was not of brown coloration but of charcoal. A black bear, silent as the northwestern breeze, lumbered without D FDUH RXW WR WKH HGJH RI WKH Ă&#x20AC;HOG DQG headed slowly east. The average-sized bruin, my best estimate to be around 200 SRXQGVZDVLQWKHZLGHRSHQĂ&#x20AC;HOGDQG at one point, stood up on his hind legs to sniff an overhanging branch and continued to move along. I was disappointed to have forgotten the binoculars in the truck and with the fact that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply for a bear permit this year, but was thankful to have had something to pass the time. In nearly 25 years of bow hunting, I can only count on one hand the number of bear sightings from a tree stand, yet that number seems to continue to increase and for those farther north the sightings are likely far more common. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long after the bear had left that those sounds of the Hay River were changing, and it sounded as if it were more than one deer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A bachelor group of bucks?â&#x20AC;? I asked myself, making my KHDUWĂ XWWHUDWWKHPHQWDOLPDJHRIPXOWLple bucks, including the trophy Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m after, ZDONLQJVLQJOHĂ&#x20AC;OHWRZDUGWKHEHDQĂ&#x20AC;HOG to feed.

It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a buck,

but a doe and her two fawns, the likely cause of the noise in the river. Sure, it would have been nice to see a large buck, EXWWKDWĂ&#x20AC;UVWJOLPSVHRIDGHHUIURPWKH stand is still exciting, and I watched with a slight grin, realizing that the bow season really was here. The doe and her fawns eventually wandered back into the woods and later a slight crack was heard from behind. Turning my head, the body of a large deer could be seen sneaking through the invasive buckthorn, a plant that has overrun this particular area, yet seems to provide good cover for deer. At the moment my head turned, the sight of a smaller 8-point rack could be seen. It was a buck I had pictures of, likely sprouting KLVĂ&#x20AC;UVWVHWRIDQWOHUVDQGQRWWKHRQH, was set on shooting this early in the season, but his antlers had recently been polished free of the velvet that coated them DOOVXPPHUORQJ,WZDVWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWLPH,¡G seen a buck, on trail camera or otherwise this season, with a hard set of antlers. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have taken the deer even if I wanted to as he snaked through the foliage like a ghost and disappeared. It was still a good hour before shooting light disappeared, but that would be the last deer Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see that evening before heading for home. There would be no deer in the back of the pickup on this particular day, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still plenty of hunting left to do.

Mushroom Identification talk and walk GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Join the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Crex Meadows Wildlife Education and Visitors Center to explore the mysterious world of fungi with volunteer expert John Menge. John Menge, a past Friends of Crex board member and active volunteer, developed the program for anyone with an

interest in learning more about mushrooms and other fungi. The program provides a great learning experience for amateurs and professionals alike, and is a great way to learn how to recognize and identify common mushrooms and to learn about the important roles fungi play in our ecosystem. Menge will lead a mushroom walk in search of edible and medicinal mushrooms, as well as those

you should avoid. Menge was an undergraduate in forestry at the University of Minnesota, and later received his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in plant pathology.

Fall color change reflects healthy forest diversity STATEWIDE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall color show is just beginning in northern Wisconsin and the changing colors help highlight the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy forest diversity, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources forestry experts say. Weather during the growing season is critical for the abundant quantity of leaves needed to provide the potential for an excellent fall color display, according to Carmen Hardin, DNR forestry sciences section chief. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 2015 growing season has been excellent across much of Wisconsin and the fall color season is anticipated to be spectacular,â&#x20AC;? Hardin said. So far this year, color change is starting to occur in certain species - especially the birch, basswood and red maple in spots across northern Wisconsin. With Wisconsin state forests, parks and natural areas conveniently accessible throughout the state, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to follow the progression of fall colors from hundreds of locations. Hardin said peak fall color varies slightly from year to year depending on the weather conditions, but the shortened day length is the primary trigger for trees to begin changing color. Kirsten Held, DNR forestry outreach specialist, said peak fall color usually occurs in far northern Wisconsin during the ODVWZHHNRI6HSWHPEHUDQGĂ&#x20AC;UVWZHHNRI 2FWREHU+RZHYHUVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWFRORUW\SLcally appears earlier in isolated, lower lying areas by mid-September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peak color generally occurs in central Wisconsin during mid-October and in southern Wisconsin during the latter half

of October,â&#x20AC;? Held said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we are beginning to see the showy maple trees turning red and the birch trees taking on a golden hue, it will take the oak trees a bit longer to yield their yellow, red and russet hues. Fall provides a great opportunity to pick out a variety of tree species on a hillside and understand just how diverse our forests are.â&#x20AC;? Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state parks and forests and state natural areas offer prime locations for enjoying natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual fall color show, starting with the forests in northern and central Wisconsin. The Flambeau River State Forest, in Sawyer, Price and Rusk counties, can be one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top destinations to check out the fall colors, said Jim Halvorson, forest superintendent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can view the colors from the road, by walking trails or by canoeing down the river,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historically the peak comes early to the Flambeau River State Forest due to the strong mix of maple that we have. Peak comes during the last week RI6HSWHPEHUWRWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWZHHNRI2FWREHU Call ahead to 715-332-5271, ext. 101, prior to your visit to check on how colors are progressing.â&#x20AC;?

the DNR website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intensity of the fall color season is really dependent on the weather that Wisconsin receives during September and October,â&#x20AC;? Hardin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have the most brilliant and vibrant fall color display, a VHULHVRIIDOOGD\VĂ&#x20AC;OOHGZLWKEULJKWVXQshine and cool, but frost-free, evenings are required. These weather conditions cause anthocyanins to be produced by certain species of trees (e.g. maples) which protect the leaves of the trees from the light as they are storing nutrients and sugars for the winter. This ultimately leads to the intense red, orange and purple coloration in the leaves.â&#x20AC;? The duration of the fall color season is related to the intensity of wind and rain during late-September and October.

:KDWFDXVHVWUHHVWRWXUQFRORU" The timing of fall color in Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forests is determined more by the shortening daylight hours than it is by temperature, but temperature and other weather conditions play a big role in the intensity and duration of fall colors, said Held. There are three types of pigments that are directly involved in producing colorful leaf displays: chlorophyll, carotenoids and anthocyanins. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how they work: â&#x20AC;˘ Chlorophyll is present in the leaves during the growing season and gives the leaves their green color. In the process called photosynthesis, chlorophyll utilizes the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy to produce simple

sugars - the trees food - from water and carbon dioxide. â&#x20AC;˘ Carotenoids are present in the leaf chloroplasts also, but because the green coloration of the chlorophylls predominate, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen through the growing season. The carotenoid pigments are responsible for the yellow colorations of fall leaves. â&#x20AC;˘ Anthocyanins produce the brilliant reds and purples that everyone associates with a spectacular fall color season. This color pigment develops in the early autumn within the leaf cells to protect the leaves from bright light as biological processes transition from food production to storage. During this period, called senescence, the leavesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; photosynthetic components are broken down and the nutrients, mainly nitrogen and phosphorus, are moved within the tree for storage and use the following year. Certain tree and shrub species commonly are associated with differing colors during the fall: green ash, white birch and aspen turn golden yellow; red maple a brilliant red; oak and hickory become a reddish-brown color; white ash a deep purple; and sumac a scarlet red. Even tamarack turns a beautiful deep golden yellow and loses its needles in the fall, the only conifer (evergreen) tree in Wisconsin to shed its needles.

Larry Samson | Staff writer SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Burch Barn Pumpkin Patch, Spooner, has opened for the season providing safe fun for the whole family. Dan and Becky Burch have turned their small farm over to their three children, Jerad, Jace and Emma, for their pumpkin project. Several years ago their grandfather got them into pumpkins. They raised them in the summer and sold them in the fall. This year they developed an amusement park as a way to attract more people to the pumpkin patch. They added a large corn maze, grain train ride and a 100-foot slide. There is also a shorter slide for the younger children, two bouncy castles and a large corn pit where the children can play for hours and their parents can watch in the shade. Dan said that his children would come up with an idea and he would make it happen. The children, along with their cousins, spend hours trying out each activity

so they would know that it was fun and safe. A small petting zoo with potbelly pigs and a miniature horse is one of the biggest attractions. There is a mechanical cow so the grandparents can show their grandchildren how to milk a cow. Ten-year-old Emma loves baking and is planning her Baby Cake Bake Sale for Saturday, Oct. 3, with funds going to the Kids Cancer Fund, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in Minneapolis, Minn. Pumpkin bars, cakes and cookies are her specialty. The Burch Barn will be open on Fridays from 1 p.m. to dusk, on Saturday from 10 a.m. to dusk and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to dusk. They will be open from now until Halloween. The children are planning a special Halloween program but are keeping the details secret. Burch Barn is located at N5921 CTH K. For more information see burchbarn.com or call 715-635-7787.

Other speakers at the dedication ceremony were Luck museum director Rachel Starbuck, building campaign Chairperson Tam Howie and Marty Messar, chair of the library board. Starbuck opened the program, calling the dedication a â&#x20AC;&#x153;moment in timeâ&#x20AC;? that is â&#x20AC;&#x153;certainly historic.â&#x20AC;?

First, he noted, the bronze of the statue is an alloy made of primarily copper with some tin. The building, itself, is also an alloy, consisting of the library and the museum. It is an alloy of the literature and literacy symbolized by the library and the story of Luck and its heritage embodied in the museum. Pedersen, himself, represented an alloy, said Messar. He was a dreamer and a doer, a man of ideas as well as a man of action. The rock that Sophie reclines on, Edwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock, is a very old precambrian basalt, said Messar, that has been marked and scarred through the centuries. Pedersen also left his mark on the community, on his family and on Sophie. Pedersen, who died Feb. 7, 2012, was an English teacher, Messar pointed out, and Sophie is holding a book. The inside page of the book has 6SHDNLQJDWWKHGHGLFDWLRQRI6RSKLH /WR5 ZHUH/XFNPXVHXPGLUHFWRU5D a single word, love, and Messar related this to FKHO6WDUEXFNOLEUDU\ERDUG&KDLU0DUW\0HVVDUEXLOGLQJFDPSDLJQ&KDLUSHUVRQ Pedersenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for the community, his family 7DP+RZLHDQGDUWLVW$QQ)DZYHU and literature.

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The birth of a baby. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the giving of birth to a new life that has been growing inside his or her mother for nine months. It is also the birth of a mom, a new dad and expanded family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as old as time, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new and exciting each time. It brings questions and even fear. Throughout the ages, up until the early 1900s, these questions and fears were assuaged by other women who attended the mother-to-be. Traditional pregnancy art in many cultures depict both a woman catching the baby, as a midwife or medical doctor does, and a woman providing support for the birthing mom, as a doula does. In the 1920s, when hospital births started becoming standard practice, medical staff became the traditional support system for women in labor. In the past few decades it has become common for the father or other family members to be present and give encouragement to the mom. During recent years, also, there has been a combining of the traditions, and moms-to-be can access the services RIWKHPHGLFDOFRPPXQLW\FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HGQXUVHPLGZLYHVDQG doulas. A doula, explained Liana Bratton, plays a nonmedical role throughout the pregnancy, providing support, encouragement, information and practical help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very ancient role,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it is making a modern-day reappearance.â&#x20AC;? %UDWWRQLVFHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HGWKURXJK'RXODVRI1RUWK$PHULFD DQ LQWHUQDWLRQDO QRQSURĂ&#x20AC;W RUJDQL]DWLRQ WKDW UHTXLUHV rigorous and high-quality training for membership as a FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HGGRXOD6KHLVDOVRDGRXODIRUWKH7ZLQ&LWLHV Doula Project, which is composed completely of volunteers who believe that doula services should be available to every expecting mother. 6KHDQGKHUSDUWQHU4XLQQPRYHGWR$QDWKRWK)DUP east of Luck this past May, where they help with the farming and are getting involved in the Luck and Polk &RXQW\FRPPXQLW\6LQFHVKH¡VEHHQKHUHVKHKDVVSHQW VRPH RI KHU WLPH VKDGRZLQJ WKH SUDFWLFH RI FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HG nurse midwife Brenda Johnson.

Doulas, Bratton said, have cultivated very positive relationships with hospital staff and with midwives. In more and more of the larger hospitals, doulas are now part of the regular staff. Doulas are able to provide continuity throughout the birth, even if the nurses have a shift change or if the family doctor is out of town, and she can communicate the desires of the mom. The positive relationship between the doula and the medical staff often allows Bratton to advocate for the mom when necessary. Research has shown, and care providers are seeing, that women who have a doula use less medication, have a lower incidence of C-sections, remain calmer during labor and have a faster delivery and recovery. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ %UDWWRQ¡VKHOSGRHVQ¡WHQGRQFHWKHEDE\LVERUQ6KH &HUWLILHGGRXOD/LDQD%UDWWRQ3KRWRE\0DU\6WLUUDW meets with the mom postpartum, to answer questions about caring for the newborn and help the mom to process through the birth.

They ended up on the land owned by &RXQW=LQ]HQGRUIDULFKUXOHUZKRZDV troubled by their suffering and allowed them to establish a community. The tightly knit community became known as Herrnhut. During their time of formation, the Moravians made a covenant with God to pray 24 hours a day. Their continuous prayer watch began with 24 men and 24 women, each spending an hour a day in prayer. It grew into a huge chain of prayers focused on the desire to further Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kingdom on earth. One of their

The prayer group met weekly to encourage one another and to read letters and messages from their fellow â&#x20AC;&#x153;brothersâ&#x20AC;? throughout the world. Decades passed. The prayer chain lasted over 100 years with astounding results. It helped start Protestant missions in the West Indies, Greenland, Turkey and Lapland. A total of 70 Moravian missionaries were sent from their original community.

Years later the list had grown to over 300. It sparked the conversions of John Wesley and his brother Charles, famous preachers whom God used for revival in England. The prayer chain also started the Great Awakening that swept through Europe and America.

be changed in positive ways, to say nothing about ways to draw others to Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healing salvation. Thankfully, some churches or Christian groups already offer round-theclock prayer.

Through her life since, she has used that competitive nature to full dramatic effect, turning her energies toward drama, in all aspects of the art. It is safe to say that few actors have had more local impact than Johnson has over the last decade. -RKQVRQKDVEHHQDFWLQJDW)HVWLYDO7KHDWUHVLQFH when she made a splash in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arsenic and Old Lace,â&#x20AC;? which led to her return the next season for a role as a dog, yes, a IXOORQFDQLQHLQ´6\OYLDÂľZLWKDQRWDEO\XQXVXDOVRUWRI â&#x20AC;&#x153;love triangle.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being an animal lover, I sort of loved that one!â&#x20AC;? she said with a genuine grin.

Johnson thinks that enhancement and encouragement of local talent is not only a key to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success and 25 years of existence, it also is necessary to enhance the community even further, especially after the Civic is fresh and new again, after a century of use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The refurbished building) is going to be such a gift, and with more accessibility and exposure, it will open up even more opportunities,â&#x20AC;? she said.
