),5675($' MADISON – The deadline for Wisconsin consumers to receive restitution from the state’s recent consent judgment against Classmates, Inc. is quickly approaching. To be considered for eligibility, consumer complaints to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection must be postmarked or received by Oct. 8. Classmates does business as Classmates.com, a social networking website for reconnecting with high school friends. Wisconsin obtained the consent judgment at the conclusion of a multi-state investigation involving 22 states. Pursuant to the settlement, the company is required to deposit $3 million in an account to pay restitution to affected consumers in those states. Those eligible for restitution include Classmates customers who enrolled in the company’s subscription services on or after Jan. 1, 2008. The complaints must involve the conduct addressed in the consent judgment including: Classmates charging the consumer’s account without the consumer’s authorization; Classmates using automatic subscription renewals without the consumer’s knowledge; or Classmates charging the consumer’s account after the consumer cancelled the subscription services. Within 90 days of the end of the claim period, Classmates will send to each consumer who submitted an eligible complaint a refund check for the amount the consumer alleges he/she paid in unauthorized charges, minus DQ\DPRXQWDOUHDG\UHIXQGHGE\WKHFRPSDQ\,I\RXZLVKWRÀOHDFRPSODLQW YLVLWWKH'$7&3ZHEVLWHDWGDWFSZLVFRQVLQJRYWRÀOHRQOLQHRUWRGRZQORDGD complaint form.

The increase in Minnesota and Wisconsin collisions with deer are due in large part to more deer on the landscape. Wildlife experts say deer numbers declined in 2013 and 2014 after harsh winters, but their numbers are now rebounding thanks to more conservative hunting seasons and milder winters. Wisconsin ranks the sixth most likely state for drivers to hit a GHHUZLWK0LQQHVRWDFORVHEHKLQGDWVHYHQWK6RXWK'DNRWDUDQNVÀIWKQDWLRQDOO\ in odds of hitting a deer, at 1 in 73, also up from 2014.

At this time a revenue increase of $51,000 is projected, with state aid increasing $79,000 and local sources decreasing $40,000. The preliminary budget shows an increase in expenditures of $311,000. As noted, instructional costs are going down $15,000. However, support services now show an increase of $159,000 and nonprogram transactions are up $167,000.

When you exercise that right with an untruth and it becomes a public record, it is considered libel and defamation of character. Bullying is a phenomenon that has been nationally recognized in our schools, the workplace and through social media. Likes and dislikes dominate our lives and can ruin reputaWLRQV7KHYHUEWREXOO\LVGHĂ&#x20AC;QHGDV â&#x20AC;&#x153;forcing oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way aggressively or by intimidation.â&#x20AC;? Letters to the editor are the brick and mortar of social media. As such, they can also be used for bullying. In the local weekly newspapers of rural America, letters are a lifeline to others in our community and can become a court of public opinion. Arnell Memorial Humane Society has certainly been the victim of repeated attacks through social media and letters to the editor, written by Ms. Tanya Borg, Centuria. They are nothing less than bullying. In a recent letter to the editor, Borg stated that Arnell Humane Society â&#x20AC;&#x153;kills half of the animals that come to our shelter.â&#x20AC;? The word kill is designed to illicit outrage but is profoundly inaccurate. Borg knows that Arnell does not euthanize half of the animals that come to our shelter, as she has acknowledged at meetings with CDRE Committee in Balsam Lake. And yet she penned this calculated lie to illicit a response and perhaps shock the public into believing it and withdrawing its support. In so doing, she is promoting her personal agenda as the only correct and workable agenda. Lying is lying. A misstatement on occasion is regrettable but understandable. When Borg deliberately distorts and misrepresents the facts time and again, she shows herself to be dishonest and manipulative. The message Borg is offering suggests, that by limiting the animals admitted to our shelter, by number and temperament, Arnell would be able to meet the 90 percent or higher live release rate promoted by the nokill movement. Some shelters have been bullied by such tactics, causing them to release dangerous dogs to the public in order to meet the no-kill percentage criteria, with real consequences. One of the most alarming examples comes out of New Mexico. To make the numbers, the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department permitted more than 100 dangerous dogs to be adopted by families after they failed nationally recognized behavioral tests. The results were tragic. Dozens of these dogs killed or injured other pets, bit children, attacked their owners or displayed otherwise aggressive behavior. Arnell Humane Society offers a safe haven for all stray pets in Polk

County, regardless of temperament, age and behavior. Arnell does not limit the number of strays admitted to our shelter. It is one of the central purposes for which our humane society was established. An animal shelter must maintain an open door policy in order to be available for those animals with nowhere else to go. It is regrettable to have to euthanize any animal for any reason. At shelters across the nation and at Arnell, that decision must be made for the consideration of the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety or to end an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffering. By continuing to print lies, rumors and innuendo, sending messages that link the killing of animals to our local animal shelter, Borg is trying to bully our open admission shelter through her distortions of the truth. Say it enough times and it will be perceived as the truth, but it is no less a lie. In the case of AMHS, each attempt to discuss and offer facts, have been met with further attacks. Defending ourselves only keeps the negative comments in the news and takes away from the positive message of all the good things happening at Arnell Memorial Humane Society. Other shelters we have spoken to have been reluctant to respond or come to the defense of Arnell because they are afraid they will become her next target. If this intimidation leads to silence, and in some cases tacit cooperation, and is not considered bullying, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what is. Arnell will continue to operate to the highest ethical standards. The care of animals, all animals is its mandate. Borg seems to think that by misrepresenting Arnell, she will VRPHKRZ EHQHĂ&#x20AC;W WKH VWUD\ DQG VXUrendered animals in our care. Rather than smearing the shelter and its supporters through a campaign of misrepresentation, she might consider working in a positive and constructive effort to help animals in need throughout our community. How can we work toward a positive outcome for our animals through an unrelenting negative campaign of mudslinging? Show your support for the Arnell Humane Society. Walk with us this Saturday at our annual event, the Arnell Walk for Animals. Send a message. Stand up to bullying.

Since 7KHDFFRPSOLVKPHQWV 1933 I received an email from Congressman Duffy condemning the Iran nuclear deal. )LUVW2EDPDDQG.HUU\GLGDWUHmendous job in getting the countries of the world together to put economic sanctions on Iran. Then together with our allies, they negotiated a deal that would prevent Iran from using its nuclear capabilities and research from developing nuclear weapons. Rep. Duffy is pipe dreaming if he thinks he could get the rest of the free world to put economic sanctions back on Iran just to please a Republican Congress that simply cannot stand to see President Obama succeed in bringing peace to the world. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said before the Iran deal was realized that Iran would have nuclear weapons within a year. But Iran has agreed to international inspections of its nuclear facilities and to suspend weapons development and research. Netanyahu should be jumping with joy - no Iranian nukes this year or into the future. I also want to comment on the Republican presidential candidates debate. All but one candidate was for increasing military spending, going to war with Iran on day one, cutting taxes on the wealthy, and like Duffy, wrapped themselves in the $PHULFDQĂ DJSUDLVHGYHWHUDQVDQG condemned the lack of veterans care. But like Duffy, the candidates from Congress voted against meaningful UHIRUPRIYHWHUDQVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVEHFDXVH of its expense. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it make PRUHĂ&#x20AC;VFDOVHQVHWRTXLWJRLQJWRXQnecessary wars? That would cut the net number of veterans needing expensive postwar treatment. Maybe then tax cuts would be in order. Then there are the catch phrases. When a Republican politician starts by saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;The American people,â&#x20AC;? it means that he is about to tell a lie that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want challenged. To challenge would be un-American. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take back Americaâ&#x20AC;? means that the politician has no idea what he is talking about, but is expecting the listener to supply his own problem colored by ignorance and bigotry.

73rd Assembly District â&#x20AC;˘ Nick Milroy Familiar faces

)

ox News out of Superior has a weekly feature called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowing your Neighbors,â&#x20AC;? which highlights a local business. Earlier this month they visited a restaurant in Ashland, The Platter, that occupies one of the oldest brownstones in Ashland. As I watched, I started thinking about how lucky we are to live in northern Wisconsin, to live in a community where you can walk down the street and see lots of familiar faces smiling back at you. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen often enough, but I am always thrilled to see familiar faces in the state Capitol. This week it happened twice. A group of seventhgraders from Mercer and their teachers made the trip to Madison and visited PHLQP\RIĂ&#x20AC;FH$QG,ZDVSOHDVHGWR see Dr. Henry Gradillas in the Capitol yesterday and proud to join thousands of others as Superintendent Tony Evers SUHVHQWHG*UDGLOODVZLWKRQHRIĂ&#x20AC;YH )ULHQGVRI(GXFDWLRQ$ZDUGV Gradillas was born in 1934 in Santa Barbara, Calif.

Bush, Gradillas moved to northern Wisconsin. In the North, he is continuing his service as an academic tutor and substitute teacher at Ashland High School, advocating for and mentoring many students. We are so fortunate that Gradillas and his wife, Gayle, chose our beautiful area to enjoy their retirement and that he continues to enrich the lives of our young people. 7KH)ULHQGVRI(GXFDWLRQ$ZDUGV were presented as part of Eversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; State of Education Address. Unfortunately, that address was delivered under the shadow of renewed attacks on public education. Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, a voucher school supporter from southeast Wisconsin, wants to eliminate your right to elect an independent voice for public education. He and his Republican colleagues want to change the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitution so education would be run by a political appointee of the governor instead. This comes as a new state budget takes effect. That budget created a new diversion of public aid

dollars directly out of public schools into politically connected voucher schools. This diversion erases the meager increase in state aid over three budgets. Aid for our children continues to shrink as Republicans send our tax dollars to unaccountable voucher schools, which have seen their aid skyrocket by 89.3 percent. Despite three consecutive budgets that have left our public schools with less support than six years earlier, our teachers continue to focus on success in our communities and our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classrooms. As he has traveled the nation, the governor has been using Wisconsin schools as a campaign prop. Our public educators are the ones who deserve the credit for leading classrooms that are second in the nation in graduation rates and second nationally in ACT scores. Evers, who was in Cameron earlier this month to help celebrate the opening of their new school, appreciates the sigQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWDFFRPSOLVKPHQWVRIRXUSXEOLF educators. In his address he highlighted decreased truancy and expulsion rates, increased attendance and more students receiving college credit for coursework they do in high school. Despite their success, public school teachers have seen their average compensation fall. Unfortunately, the governor, who is paid nearly $150,000 by Wisconsin taxpayers during his travels,

seems determined to reduce everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wages. The governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies are going to negatively affect all worker salaries, not just public employees like teachers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that potential young educators are choosing different careers, or different states. Schools in northern Wisconsin have been losing experienced teachers at an alarming rate and are having trouble recruiting new teachers. We have 2,000 fewer students signing on to earn teaching degrees than we had in 2011, and 12 percent fewer new teachers were licensed in the last two years in Wisconsin. We are fortunate to have the continued service of many educators who are committed to our state and our children. Students from Mercer to Cameron, from Superior to Ashland, all points LQEHWZHHQDQGDFURVV:LVFRQVLQEHQHĂ&#x20AC;W from the great work of public school teachers. Instead of undermining rural schools at every turn, the governor should aspire to emulate the achievements of these public servants who demonstrate their commitment to our communities and our state every day. With new quarterly job numbers showing Wisconsin has fallen from 11th nationally to 30th, the governor might consider spending a little more time here at home among familiar faces.

Veterans Freedom Ride 32/.%851(77&2817,(6$VSHFLDO$79ULGHXSWKH*DQG\'DQFHU Trail for disabled veterans was held Saturday, Sept. 19, to coincide with thousands of events held around the world in observance of the United Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s International Day of Peace on Monday, Sept. 21. The purpose of the local ride is to honor veterans from Burnett and Polk counties, while recognizing the need for world peace. The ride is open to all veterans from all branches of service, and represents an opportunity for vets to make new friends and reconnect with old ones. The ride began in Centuria at 8 a.m. and continued along the Gandy Dancer Trail to the St. Croix Casino in Danbury for a special ceremony and lunch. Several stops were made along the way. Walkers, joggers, runners and bikers gave a smile, a wave or greetings. 0DQ\ VKRXWHG D WKDQN\RX WR WKH YHWHUDQV 7KH $79 JURXS UHPRYHG downed trees on the trail as the ride progressed, clearing the way for others. What a few veterans came to realize by being together on the ride with fellow veterans was that they are all the same, with the same experiences, just experiencing them at different times. Some groups were quiet, kicking tires. Different ages and generations were represented. Contacts were offered. Knowing nods were given. There was no fanfare, just compassion. The sun, trail and group ride brought a smile to many. Some eyes glistened moistly, but proudly. One Korean vet said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;knows why they tell me to stay hydrated. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the water keeps leaking out of my eyes.â&#x20AC;?

Grants available for hunter recruitment, development, training and education programs MADISON - Local conservation clubs, organizations, communities, individuals, governments, tribes, and colleges and universities have until Nov. 17, 2015, to apply for cost sharing to develop and conduct hunter training, development and education programs. The Department of Natural Resource is making $200,000 in federal Wildlife Restoration funds (Pittman-Robertson) available to ensure the development of safe, ethical hunters through the Hunter Training, Development and Education Grant program. The projects may get under way as early as May 2016 and can cover up to two years. The grant prioritizes funding for programs that introduce hunting to people

who would not otherwise have had exposure, in particular focusing on adults, females and families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a great need for strategically developed, tested programs and results on which we can base future program priorities,â&#x20AC;? said Keith Warnke, DNR hunting and shooting sports coordinator. Pilot studies have shown that there is growing interest in hunting from adults and families who have never hunted. There is a need to expand the effort to provide effective training and education for responsible new hunters and mentors by developing a private-public partnership reimbursement grant program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; similar to the shooting range grant program. This program is grounded in the basic

idea that novice hunters need someone to teach skills and share knowledge with them. This grant program will also be focused on developing trials and evaluating effectiveness of pilot projects. Applicants are advised to submit ideas for the development, piloting and evaluating of novice hunter training systems focusing new adult mentors and hunters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Novel, outside-the-box ideas are needed to work this tough problem,â&#x20AC;? Warnke said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we also need to make sure that we are measuring our results and evaluating effectiveness so we can know if something is having the desired effect.â&#x20AC;? Successful programs will be expanded

in Wisconsin and can be adopted by other states. Projects will be scored by an independent group of hunters and agency specialLVWVDQGUDQNHGE\VFRUH7KHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHRIWKH '15 VHFUHWDU\ ZLOO PDNH WKH Ă&#x20AC;QDO GHFLsion on funding. )RULQIRUPDWLRQRQDSSO\LQJIRUJUDQWV search the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, for hunter recruitment grants.

Vintage baseball at its best Priscilla Bauer | Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dressed in uniforms from the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early days, Grantsburg and Weyerhaeuser VWHSSHG RQWR WKH *UDQWVEXUJ +LJK 6FKRRO Ă&#x20AC;HOG RQ Sunday, Sept. 20, for a vintage baseball game. The Grantsburg team, whose players were all former mates on the old Honkers team, wore replicas of uniforms worn by the 1911 Grantsburg High School team. ´:HRUGHUHGWKHXQLIRUPVIURPWKH9LQWDJH%DVHEDOO)DFWRU\LQ&RQQHFWLFXWÂľVDLGWHDPRUJDQL]HUDQG captain Ted Gerber. The Weyerhaeuser team wore jerseys circa 1949. A private individual, who was part of the Polish National Alliance, bought the jerseys and loaned them to the players for the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weyerhaeuser has always had a proud Polish heritage, and the players thought they would honor those teams and that heritage by wearing the vintage jerseys,â&#x20AC;? commented team member Brett Ridout. Eighty-two-year-old Dutch Benik, who was a member of that 1949 team, was excited to be back on WKHĂ&#x20AC;HOGSOD\LQJZLWKWKLVWHDP\HDUVODWHU Gerber said the idea to hold the vintage game came about during the planning process for Grantsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150-year celebration.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grantsburg Sesquicentennial Committee was looking for an event that had a historic angle and originally thought a Civil War re-enactment would be appropriate, since Grantsburg was formed in 1865 during the last year of the Civil War, and of course is named after General Ulysses S. Grant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, when that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come together, I thought it would be cool to have a vintage baseball game; I had seen old pictures of Grantsburg teams and also had pictures of the Blueberry Special having special â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;baseball trainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that would haul people over to Rush City to watch games. Plus it just seemed like a fun event! And it was; I think everyone involved had a great time.â&#x20AC;? One spectator, Kayleen Branstad, decided to embrace the vintage theme. Branstad showed up for the game looking quite fetching dressed in her Grantsburg Centennial gown and twirling her matching parasol. The fans in the stands agreed watching an old-time baseball game was a great way to spend a warm fall day.

SCF school board weighs policy on policy change

Multiple readings may be reduced

Greg Marsten | Staff writer 67&52,;)$//6²6W&URL[)DOOV6FKRRO'LVWULFW$Gministrator Mark Burandt will investigate the policy behind the policy change requirements for the district, as they usually have three readings for any policy changes, spread over several board meetings. Burandt said he would like to possibly streamline that process down to just two readings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would then go from committee to the full board,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said at the Tuesday, Sept. 22, regular board meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But nothing would force your hand.â&#x20AC;? Burandt assured the board that they could still delay or ask for further review of any of those items under consideration. The board did agree that few, if any, changes are ever made during those various readings, and they would still have the option to add another layer of review, if needed. Burandt said he is investigating the process and said the board may have to go through a three-reading process to change any appropriate policy change to the policy change procedure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, we may have to modify the policy to approve policy,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said with a smile. The board took no action, but will consider the issue at a future meeting.

,QRWKHUERDUGEXVLQHVV â&#x20AC;˘ The board approved letting Burandt negotiate with WKHRZQHUVRI)OH[*\PQDVWLFVIRUWKHRXWULJKWSXUFKDVH of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old gymnastics equipment. The district approved a previous lease agreement with WKHĂ&#x20AC;UPLQWRDOORZIRUWKHHYHQWXDOSXUFKDVHRIWKH equipment, with annual payments. However, Burandt noted that they never renewed the DQQXDOOHDVHEXWWKH)OH[JURXSKDVFRQWLQXHGWKHSD\ments ever since. They have made an offer to buy the LWHPVIRUDĂ DWSULFHDGMXVWHGIRULWVDJH %XUDQGWVDLGWKH)OH[JURXSKDVSDLGRYHUVR IDUDQGWKDWWKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOSXUFKDVHSULFHFRXOGEHQHJRWLDWHG to a fair level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not throwing stones at this (previous) agreement,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said as he asked the board for approval WRQHJRWLDWHRQDĂ&#x20AC;QDOSULFH â&#x20AC;&#x153;The complicating factor is that the lease doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist anymore,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said, adding that they have three options, including selling it outright, drafting a new lease or keeping the equipment and using it at the school again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But so far, none of the principals have offered up a garage for storage,â&#x20AC;? Burandt joked. The board seemed to agree that the interest was not

there at the school to restart their program, and they do ZDQWWRVHHLWJRWRWKHEHVWXVH´<HDK,DJUHH7KH\ )OH[ Gymnastics) have a good thing going,â&#x20AC;? board member Sheri Norgard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The items are getting used. I think we should be done with it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ The board approved the policy to do a 12-month â&#x20AC;&#x153;look backâ&#x20AC;? review of their employee health insurance eligibility policy, per the Affordable Care Act, which forces the district to offer health insurance for employees averaging 30 hours of work weekly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The issue might be substitute teachers,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them may go over 30 hours. Using a look back, they may qualify.â&#x20AC;? The board also approved a 90-day â&#x20AC;&#x153;stability periodâ&#x20AC;? where employees who may have previously qualified for insurance can continue on the policy for 90 days, in spite of no longer meeting the 30-hour threshold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ACA has done a lot of great things, but this is one of the glitches,â&#x20AC;? Burandt said.

We pray for the bifocals of faith - that see the despair and the need of the hour but also see, further on, the patience of our God working out His plan in the world he has made.
