),5675($' STATEWIDE - Wisconsin’s average ACT score for the most recent high school graduates ranks second in the nation, although scores in the state are likely to go down in the future. The average ACT score in Wisconsin was 22.2 out of 36 points for the nearly 50,000 graduates in the Class of 2015. The state tied for second place with Iowa, trailing Minnesota by just 0.5 point. The rankings compare Wisconsin to the 29 other states where more than 50 percent of the students take the assessment. ACT scores won’t likely be as high for the Class of 2016. John Johnson, spokesman for the state Department of Public Instruction, said that’s because all high school juniors were required to take the exam this past March. “All the states that have gone to having 100 percent of juniors taking the ACT have shown scores decline,â€? he said. “We expect to see that, but we think it’s for a very good purpose.â€? Johnson said the goal of having all juniors take the ACT is to get more students to consider postsecondary education. - Parth Shah | WPR News ‡‡‡ FREDERIC - Frederic Elementary School will be having a 9/11 patriotic program on Friday, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m. They will be honoring local heroes, servicemen and women and veterans.

Feistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three-day-long trial before Judge Molly GaleWyrick in March led to a jury quickly convicting the ranch owner of 34 criminal counts, including four felony counts of animal mistreatment - causing death, on top of 30 counts of misdemeanor animal abuse. +RZHYHU )HLVW Ă&#x20AC;UHG his attorney a few days prior to his original sentencing in June, which meant a delay.

At trial, Feist took to the stand in his own defense, arguing over the condition of the 15 horses in question, which were held in a barn along with a dozen or so others that were thin or emaciated out of 80-plus horses at the ranch. Attorney Larrimore and Feist had tried to convince the jury that the hot, dry summer of 2013 had led to a poor-quality hay crop, hence the horses poor body condition. Feist claimed that he tried to overcome the poor hay quality by creating his own so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;fodder system,â&#x20AC;? essentially a fast-growing tray of barley, grown in less than 10 days, meant as a nutritional supplement. During several hours of testimony at trial, Feist tried to explain the barley fodder system he had devised to fatten the horses, and while he insisted that the horses were properly cared for, he admitted to some of them being â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little thin.â&#x20AC;? In the end, the jury was not convinced, and led to a remarkably fast decision of guilt on all counts.

Poverty sensitivity training at Siren

Jean Koelz|Staff writer SIREN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The back-to-school season can be a busy and stressful time for students and their families. Retailers work hard to capitalize on the desire to get kids ready to return to the classroom, and the weeks leading up to the start of school have become the second-biggest selling season behind the winter holidays. According to research conducted by the National Retail Federation, the average family with children in grades K through 12 spends over $600 on electronics, clothing and other school supplies. All together, that amounts to nearly $25 billion in sales. And although spending has decreased slightly over last year, families spend more than 40 percent more than they did 10 years ago.

Weeks before students go back to school, teachers and staff return to the building to get it ready for them. In addition to organizing their classrooms and preparing lesson plans, staff members attend training sessions that cover a range of subjects.

Forty-six minutes with Rep. Jarchow

Budgets, zoning, water quality, DNR issues, transportation funding, wine and bears

Greg Marsten | Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Freshman District 28 Assemblyman Adam Jarchow, R-Balsam Lake, spent the better part of an hour with editorial staff members of the Leader on Friday, Aug. 28, as he has made similar junkets across the district. The attorney-turned-legislator was elected to the Assembly last spring, replacing Erik Severson, and has recently been the subject of either support or opposition on a relatively late addition to the most recent state budget regarding local control of shoreland zoning, which has drawn opposition from several groups and even some elected bodies, such as the Polk County Board of Supervisors. He addressed a variety of issues in his forum, ranging from the zoning issue to DNR funding, stewardship fund purchasing policies, school funding, the economy, gas taxes and discussed legislation he is currently pursuing regarding hunter harassment and winery 5HS $GDP -DUFKRZ   rules. 3KRWRE\*UHJ0DUVWHQ Jarchow concurred about public objections to the process on the shoreland zoning legislation, and while he has been pressed at length by several local media outlets about the issue, he defended the purpose of the legislation without hesitation, pointing to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;long budgetary process,â&#x20AC;? which he said the legislation â&#x20AC;&#x153;actually had a pretty long (consideration) process ... about a 30-day period,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met with a lot of people, heard a lot of calls and talked with a lot of people, pro and con, about the (legislation),â&#x20AC;? Jarchow said, saying he met with wildlife and environmental groups, builders and real estate industry representatives and more. He mentioned that the Joint Finance Committee did remove a number of items from the proposed budget, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this was not one of them,â&#x20AC;? and while there was a proposed Assembly amendment to take it out of the budget, the legislation was retained, effectively usurping local zoning limitations from being more stringent than the state legislation. It also survived gubernatorial muster and was signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker. But Jarchow recognized various objections to the zoning legislation process, about not having any true local hearings or public input. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fair point (on it not being a standalone bill), but I think on balance ... the people of this district elected me to get things done,â&#x20AC;? he said, stating he â&#x20AC;&#x153;wanted the legislation in place for construction seasonâ&#x20AC;? and said there are people who have repairs and upgrades to cabins and other riparian properties that were in limbo. Jarchow acknowledged that while opposition to his legislation regarding shoreland zoning rules has been

tied to potential water-quality issues, he said he remains a â&#x20AC;&#x153;staunch supporterâ&#x20AC;? of more realistic approaches addressing water quality. He said he had several disagreements with the DNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so-called NR 115 (state regulations regarding shoreland zoning) process, and disagrees about the local control issue, stating that â&#x20AC;&#x153;much of the local control was taken away years agoâ&#x20AC;? and that people had construction projects that were delayed or held up by unclear legislation. After stating heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see NR 115 repealed, outright, he said it could be streamlined down from the lengthy regulations and made much simpler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would be easier to say, in one paragraph, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no runoff into the lake,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Jarchow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because, at the core of it, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get at.â&#x20AC;? Jarchow also agreed that with the reduction in local interpretations and more strict limits, he could support legislation that might address things such as phosphorus reductions or possibly even outright limits on fertilizer with phosphorous, which has been directly tied to water quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of it (NR 115) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fair point that we can look at other ways of addressing the same issue.â&#x20AC;? He said the phosphorus issue is probably the greater concern to water quality than how close a building is to the water, as it can be mitigated or even utilized, but he was adamant that the changes were meant to address inconsistencies in construction and maintenance, not to make lakes and rivers dirtier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The water around here is pretty important to me,â&#x20AC;? Jarchow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I saw anything that I proposed here (had) FDXVHGDZDWHUTXDOLW\SUREOHP,ZRXOGEHWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWRQHWR UDLVHP\KDQGDQGVD\Âś,¡PZURQJDQGOHW¡VĂ&#x20AC;[LW¡¾ He also pointed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;no-till practicesâ&#x20AC;? and education for farmers and others in agriculture, using alternatives to phosphorus-loaded fertilizers. -DUFKRZGHĂ HFWHGFRQFHUQVDERXW'15IXQGLQJFXWV VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\ LQ WKH VFLHQFH Ă&#x20AC;HOG DOOXGLQJ LQVWHDG WR WKH â&#x20AC;&#x153;impenetrability of the (DNR) bureaucracy,â&#x20AC;? and how difĂ&#x20AC;FXOWLWFDQEHWRJHWWKHDSSURSULDWHRUUHOHYDQWVSHFLDOLVW or adviser on a DNR issue, something he noticed as both a resident and as an attorney.

On the recent move to limit land purchases for the DNR Stewardship Funds over the next decade, Jarchow pointed WRWKHFRVWVRIĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLQJDQGLQWHUHVWVRQVXFKSURJUDPV as well as the lack of taxes collected on state lands under state ownership, shifting the tax burden to private landowners as a result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m generally of the view that we, as a state, own way WRRPXFKSURSHUW\ÂľKHVDLGFDOOLQJLWDVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWLVVXHLQ northern parts of the state, where public land ownership reduces the tax base, negatively affecting school funding, and that public ownership also effectively reduces public access to those lands for what might otherwise seem to be tame activities, such as metal detector use and other hobbyists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that kind of stuff that drives people crazy,â&#x20AC;? he said, stating that ultimately, the legislator and others effectively ÂśVSOLWWKHEDE\¡DQGDOORZHGPRUHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDFWLRQVZKHUH in parts of the state that seem to work best. ´%XW , GRQ¡W WKLQN SHRSOH UHFRJQL]H WKH VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQW amount of borrowing and debt incurred because of the stewardship program,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is the priority here? Is it just buying land or is it using scarce public resources we have for roads and schools? I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve struck a good balance here.â&#x20AC;? As to school funding issues, Jarchow pointed to the proposed education funding cuts put forth by Gov. Walker, which the Legislature rejected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was a proposed cut of $130 million over the biennium,â&#x20AC;? he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;we took that and restored it, and then we added an extra $70 million, so what the governor had proposed, we added an extra $200 million, from what the governor proposed.â&#x20AC;? Jarchow said he thinks the real issue is declining enrollments, which some schools are trying to address in creative ways, such as Grantsburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iForward online schooling, which can cater to students who otherwise might have gone outside the public school system. But the online school can have an adverse effect on that school districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;report cardâ&#x20AC;? ratings, leading to ancillary downgrading. He said they have tried to address that issue with legislation to split the ratings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the real problem is the school funding formula, which is just broken for northern Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? he said with DQRGQRWRIIHULQJDQ\VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F´Ă&#x20AC;[HVÂľEXWLQVWHDGVWDWLQJ that he would like to see â&#x20AC;&#x153;a more holistic view (of fundLQJ Âľ UHODWHG WR VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F DUHDV RI WKH  VWDWH ZKHUH WKHUH might be limiting issues and problems, with equalized valuations, enrollment and more.

He said that while some schools struggle with funding every year, due to their districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equalized value, other districts capitalize on those same issues, leading to inequity in funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rub is though, anytime you start changing that (funding formula), some schools are winners and others DUHORVLQJÂľKHVDLG´7KDW¡VZK\LW¡VEHHQVRGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWR Ă&#x20AC;[EXW,¡OOKRQHVWO\VD\WKHUHLVQRRQHVROXWLRQ%XW,¡P committed to keep working on it.â&#x20AC;?

He noted the relatively low unemployment rates for many local counties as evidence of a recovery, and said that while some employers have relayed concerns about KDYLQJWURXEOHĂ&#x20AC;QGLQJZRUNHUVZLWKWKHULJKWWUDLQLQJ he is hoping legislative attention toward job training will help address the issue in the short term. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great problem to have,â&#x20AC;? he said, pointing to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wisconsin Fast Forwardâ&#x20AC;? targeted training program, which had funds allocated to address those very issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a misperception that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cut taxes, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cutting spending,â&#x20AC;? he said.

-XVWEHJLQQLQJKLVOLIH A year and a half ago, my grandson was killed by a hit-and-run driver. The two guys that hit him stopped all right but jumped back in their truck and took off, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get the (expletive) out of here.â&#x20AC;? There had to be 10 cop cars there

that night. Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they chase after them and see where they went or get their plate number or make of the truck - this is what puzzles me. There are two guys out there walking around free with this crime on their shoulders. How can they live with themselves? I am asking them to please come forward and face this, so I can at least have some

peace and get over my loneliness for my grandson. He would have turned 30 on Sept. 18. He was just beginning his life when it was cut short in such a brutal way. Shirley Mae Mosay Turtle Lake

If marijuana were to become more accessible and acceptable in our state, experience tells us marijuana use and associated problems would rise, particularly among young and impressionable youth. Marijuana use can harm the developmental and longterm health of youth; plus, it can stunt learning ability and educational opportunity. A recent study shows persistent marijuana use during adolescence can cause a long-term eight-point drop in IQ.

Safety concerns lead the DNR to plan breach of Little Falls Dam SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Safety and code compliance concerns with the Little Falls Dam in northwestern Wisconsin have led the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to develop a plan for a controlled breach of the dam to allow a drawdown to proceed. Working with an engineering consulting firm and community groups, the DNR developed a plan to lower water levels behind the dam starting in midJune and concluding in mid-July. Since then, however, repeated rain events have occurred and water levels have not reached desired targets, said Paul Bruggink, northern Fish, Wildlife and Parks Division representative with the DNR. While the previous plans called for a 6-inch per day drawdown, the repeated rain events have not allowed the water level to reach a point where sediment management, including erosion control, could take place. As a result, the DNR has concluded a controlled breach will be

the best way to address health and safety concerns arising from the damâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structural issues as well as sediment management. In addition to restoring safer and more predictable conditions downstream, the breach strategy will allow natural vegetation to become established prior to the end of the growing season and prevent future erosion, Bruggink said. The breach is not expected to negatively affect the Ă&#x20AC;VKHU\ ZKLOH WKHUH ZLOO EH LPPHGLDWH FKDQJHVLQORFDOĂ&#x20AC;VKSRSXODWLRQVSRSXlations will quickly stabilize and return to normal in both the lake and Lower Willow River. The DNR intends to initiate the work to breach the dam as soon as a contractor KDVEHHQLGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;HG7KHGUDZGRZQZRUN is intended to be complete by late fall. To learn more about the project, visit DNR.wi.gov and search Little Falls Dam. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from WisDNR

Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Since the recession there has been significant discussion about jobs and the economy. In the past year discussions have centered around how Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job-creation levels have been fairly poor in contrast to prerecession data. M. Kevin McGee, an economics professor for the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh, published a paper in August that explores how the state of Wisconsin could have a low unemployment rate while maintaining low job growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What turned out is the data shows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a population growth issue,â&#x20AC;? said McGee, who admitted the result surprised him. He had expected it to be because of a drop in the labor force participation but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The issue appears to be that we (the state) are not retaining our workforce,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. According to McGee the state lost about 10,000 people, as a net difference in migration, in the past four years. He says this suggests we have a problem in terms of keeping workers, which may have big impacts on the state HFRQRP\LQWKHQH[WĂ&#x20AC;YHRU\HDUV â&#x20AC;&#x153;Assuming we care about the number of jobs in the state and increasing the number of jobs, we have to do something in terms of retaining the workforce that we have,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. People aged 27 to 44 are those that are leaving the state and McGee says that if they continue to leave the state will feel their absence 10, 20 even 30 years from now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole job gap is our relative inability to create jobs and if we have people leaving the state, well theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not

going to be taking jobs here in the state and our employers are not going to have them available as workers so part of and what my results suggest is the biggest part of why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not creating jobs is we have people leaving the state, we have an exodus of workers.â&#x20AC;? While he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tackle the cause of Wisconsin workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; migration, McGee pointed out that policies the state has adopted in the last four years make the state more or less attractive for workers. Going into the future the goal should be to attract workers because that is where the shortage is. But McGee does agree the reason for worker migration doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come down to policies alone and the reasons IRUWKHLUPLJUDWLRQLVGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRSLQSRLQW due to the problematic nature involved in surveying those that have left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the most interesting thing is, is that this is not how anyone is looking at the problem and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really looking at it this way until I explored the numbers, and the result is very clear,â&#x20AC;? he said. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment data comes from Quarterly Census on Employment and Wages, a monthly census of all employers. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment rate comes from the Bureau of Labor Statisticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Local Area Unemployment statistics, which are estimated from the Current Population Survey, the Current Employment Statistics (a survey) and the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unemployment insurance data. Those were used as sources by McGee but he also used his own previous research and various economics textbooks.

Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a huge problem in the county that is going on. The issue is that the county is so sparsely populated that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know there is an issue until they show up at your door. People just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how big of a problem it is,â&#x20AC;? said Bill Holden, spokesperson for the Washburn County Homeless Coalition. The Washburn County Homeless Coalition recently formed to provide assistance to those living in homeless situations in the county. The WCHC began as an offshoot of the Washburn Christian Outreach organization, which is a local faith-based organization that formed in December of 2014 to provide assistance to those in need. Many of the

same players that form WCO are involved with WCHC. Those include Tom Bremer, district director for the Salvation Army, Duana Bremer, Indianhead Community Action Agency shelter development, Dawn Wagner, of the Indianhead Community Action Agency Connections store, and various concerned county residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encounter it all the time, we have no place to put homeless people so we either have to get them to organizations south of us or end up just putting them at a motel,â&#x20AC;? said Holden, who is also active in WCO and Rubyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pantry.

Spread the word around. Guess who (was) back in town. Several Frederic Vikings football fans were late for last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening kickoff due to being sidetracked by encounters with former FHS sports luminaries at a local restaurant. Chief among the ex-Viking icons on the scene THE SPORTS was the man whom many Frederic hoop historians consider to be the greatest FHS boys basketball player in blue and gold history, Charles/ Charlie/ Chuck/ â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Stickâ&#x20AC;? Johnson. Johnson averaged, yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s averaged, just shy of 30 points per game during his senior season of 1968-69. Although Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s points came from both inside and outside, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no

doubt he wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve registered at least two or more per game had the 3-pointer been established during his career. And yes, ex-Viking John â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jumboâ&#x20AC;? Grindell was also amongst the Friday throng, waxing nostalgic with former teammates and others. Also present was one of Johnson and Grindellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former hard-court teammates, Erick â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rickâ&#x20AC;? Anderson. While Anderson once scored over 30 points in a basketball game at Amery in which Johnson also netted 45, he is best known to FHS alumni as the quarterback of the 1968 conference championship football team. Some of us will never forget a frosty October night at Mellgren Field in Milltown when the Vikes steamrolled Unity 34-7 to claim the title outright. One local fan now in his late 50s recalls standing outside the end zone that night with a couple of fellow sixth-graders and having the opportunity to glad-hand Anderson and pat him on the back after he cruised in for a touchdown on one of his patented quarterback keepers.

a great night for the Saints offensive line, who were one of the main focuses in the practice leading up to the game against Prescott according to Belisle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a coaching staff, we really got on our lineman during the week, and they responded in a big way. The coaching staff if proud of the way they played.â&#x20AC;? The Saints line includes Dalton Langer, Trevon Gearhart, Caleb Gearhart, Dalton Kloos, Wyatt Bergmann, and tight ends Luke Clark and Cole Webb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These guys made (quarterback) Alex Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job of running and throwing PXFK HDVLHU -RKQVRQ Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG ZLWK  rushing yards and 143 passing yards.

Marty Seeger|Staff writer PRESCOTT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Saints jumped out to a 1-1 start to the season after a win over Prescott Friday, Aug. 28. They now enter the regular conference season this week on the road against Flambeau Friday, Sept. 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking ahead to Flambeau, they are always a tough team to play. Their kids play extremely hard, and play all four quarters. We will need to continue to improve in all three phases of the game, if we want to beat them,â&#x20AC;? said Saints head coach Grant Belisle. Against Prescott it was a bit of a defensive battle through three quarters as St. Croix Falls led 22-14 heading into the fourth quarter, but the teams combined for 46 points in the fourth quarter and St. Croix Falls held on to the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great team win.

And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we were late Friday QLJKW%ODPHLWRQDVL[WKJUDGHĂ DVKEDFN Incidentally, Grantsburg won last Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game 27-6 (see game story elsewhere on these pages). Modern era FHS icon heads north. And lest we forget the younger set of former Frederic sports icons, 2015 FHS grad Zach Schmidt is one of a precious few who, like the trio in the paragraph above, can lay claim to being a part of football and basketball championships in the same season. (In Schmidtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, the 2014 football season and 2014-15 basketball season.) Schmidt was, of course, a linchpin on both title-winning squads. Also a solid southpaw hurler, Schmidt hopes to crack the baseball lineup at UW-Superior. And speaking of Frederic basketball, Fredericâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014-15 title-winning head basketball coach, Ryan Lind, has moved on to a teaching and coaching position at Johnson Creek High School in the southern part of the state. Johnson Creek isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far from Lindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown of Princeton, Wis.

Look, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a VW! (No, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bear.) Last week a 500- to 600 pound-bear was seen crossing the road not far from an old schoolhouse in the Town of Luck. The carefree bruin stopped in the middle of the gravel road for a few seconds while staring down a trembling motorist in a muchsmaller foreign car. Eventually the beast ambled into a swampy morass of tag alders. If that bear is taken during the upcoming 2015 hunting season it will most certainly be front-page news. (Or at least make the Leader sports pages.) September song A few local teal, mourning dove and Canada goose hunters checked in with UHSRUWVRIVXFFHVVLQWKHLULQLWLDOIRUD\VDĂ&#x20AC;HOG earlier this week. The respective seasons for each opened on Sept. 1. And in the words of the late, great lyricist: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long, long time from May to December. But the days grow short when you reach September.â&#x20AC;? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget Halloween next month.

SCF council approves honoring fallen deputy with park name 0WFSMPPL1BSLUPIBWFEFEJDBUJPO and monument Greg Marsten | Staff writer

ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The St. Croix Falls Common Council voted unanimously to rename and dedicate the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular Overlook Park in honor of slain local sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy Michael J. Seversen, who died last year after being shot in the line of duty over two decades earlier. Seversen died on April 14, 2014, at the age of 50 from complications of a gun shot injury he received 23 years earlier, in April 1991. That incident not only left him paralyzed from the neck down, but also claimed the life of Burnett County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Allen A. Albee, 35. Seversenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public service and activities for years later have been the subject of numerous honors and stories. But he was also a local staple, staying in St. Croix Falls, where he was born and raised, later serving the city as a SDUNUDQJHUSROLFHRIĂ&#x20AC;FHUDQGĂ&#x20AC;UHĂ&#x20AC;JKWHUDQGDIWHUWKH shooting, serving over a dozen years on the St. Croix Falls Plan Commission, assisting in design elements, building standards and more for the town where he was at its mercy every day. He also gave dozens of speeches to civic, youth, law enforcement and church groups. His sister, Jane, spoke to the council at their regular meeting on Monday, Aug. 31, asking to have the Overlook Park dedicated for her brother, due to his efforts to improve â&#x20AC;&#x153;the city he so loved.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mike really liked being involved,â&#x20AC;? she stated, calling him â&#x20AC;&#x153;living proofâ&#x20AC;? that a tragedy such as his does not mean the end of living.

Falls  Chamber  Ribfest ST. CROIX FALLS - The Falls Chamber held an expanded â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ribfestâ&#x20AC;? event on Saturday, Aug. 29, in St. Croix Falls, at the grassy area beside Glacier Mall at Hwy. 8 and Glacier Drive. The temperate weather and lush grassland proved to help it be a good family event, with kids games and activities. They offered up ribs, beverages and free music by Twin Cities-based musician Tim Mahoney of the band The Blue Meenies. Mahoney also appeared as a soloist on NBC-TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Voice,â&#x20AC;? as part of Maroon 5 singer Adam Levineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. The event drew a strong crowd, and led to early talk of expanding it even more for next year, to possibly include multiple vendors and rib recipe contests.

Before me was an expansive green yard, surrounding a modest house. Marilyn warmly greeted me, and sensing my nervousness, put me to work adding logs to an already high pyramid. This was to be lit later she explained, and the coals would be spread on the ground for our walk. I tried not to think about that as I stretched high, adding more wood to the stack. Soon, others arrived and we convened in the family room. Larry motioned us into a circle, and one by one we introduced ourselves, and explained our purpose for attending the event. Larry told us it was important to set an intention, a goal, before undertaking the walk. We meditated for an hour on our intention, and then the exercises to practice mindfulness and focus on our intention began. ,KDGMXVWĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGWZR\HDUVZRUNLQJ VHYHQSDUWWLPHMREVZKLOHDWWHQGLQJ nursing school, and I was unsure of

We were to walk slowly toward each other, concentrating only on our â&#x20AC;&#x153;intention.â&#x20AC;? When my turn came, I was paired with a young man who did not seem too nervous. That calmed me somewhat, and then in the silence, we looked at each other, and keeping our minds clear of anything but our intention, we slowly walked toward each other. To my surprise, the rod bent as we grew closer.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of football for someone who wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that thrilled about the game until about the eighth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad was very anti-football. Never knew why, but nobody in the family could play football,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. That all changed when Belanger was still in grade school. His father unexpectedly passed away and his older brothers, who were in high school at that time, convinced their mother that they should play. During those days there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any youth football programs in his hometown of Brillion, which is near Green Bay. But Belanger ended up playing football his freshman year, he was the starting

quarterback all four years, and the game has been a huge part of his life ever since. During his high school playing career he had a different coach in each of his four years but two of those coaches had a lasting impact on his life and career. 7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWRQHZDVGXULQJKLVVRSKRPRUH season, instilling discipline in his players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a true Marine drill sergeant. When he said jump, you said, how high and that was it, there were no questions asked. He was a great coach and I thought he taught me a lot,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. Another coach, named Al Coenen, was an assistant during Belangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior year and became head coach during Belangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior season. Belanger still sees Coenen, who is in his early 80s, all the time and even had him on the sidelines during a game a couple of years ago. Belanger, now 71, described Coenen as his idol,

mentor and one of his best friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he really, really, really had a big impact on my life, my goals, what I wanted to do. He was a math teacher and I ended up being a football coach and a math teacher just like him,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. Along with football, Belanger played basketball, baseball and competed at the state track meet every year during high school. He played football at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and ran track all four years before landing a job as a teacher at Zumbrota-Mazeppa High School in Minnesota, as head football coach and math teacher. He coached two teams to the state championship game ZKHUH WKH\ Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG DV UXQQHUVXS DQG was inducted into the Minnesota Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2001. During his tenure in Zumbrota, Belanger had a No. 1 assistant that was with him

for all 35 years. His B-squad coach was with him for 32 years, and another eighthgrade coach, 33 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing we were together all of those years,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. Over the past 15 seasons in Frederic, he has also had assistant Troy Wink on staff along with Billy Struck for 14. Brady Robertson was a volunteer and junior high coach for many years and now Belanger has him on staff as well. After the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent loss to Grantsburg, Belangerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall record stands at 278-194-2. In terms of Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Belanger has largely stuck to a game plan his athletes can understand. Opposing coaches generally know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get from Belanger and his athletes, but

FREDERIC VIKINGS FOOTBALL Vikings working with smaller numbersĆ&#x201A;newcrew Marty Seeger|Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Staying healthy is always one of the No. 1 keys to a successful football season and that will be even more of a premium for Frederic as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with low numbers, after the exodus of nearly a dozen quality seniors at the end of the 2014 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the lowest numbers weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here,â&#x20AC;? said coach Ken Belanger, who is in his 50th year of coaching football &RDFK%HODQJHU and 15th as head coach at Frederic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the issues is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a very, very small ninth grade.â&#x20AC;? The team has four freshmen out for football. The class size is small and the girls simply outnumber the boys. At the upper levels the team has decent numbers but with so many starters lost to graduation, there are a lot of new faces on the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got good people but this is a new crew. Most of them have never played varsity ball,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. To start the year the Vikings traveled to Shell Lake for the scrimmage but that was cut short because of lightning. Belanger isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a coach who makes excuses but felt 7KH9LNLQJVRIIHQVLYHOLQHJHWVVHWWRZRUNDJDLQVW*OHQZRRG&LW\GXULQJWKHWHDPVILUVWJDPHRIWKHVHDVRQz3KRWRE\%HFN\$PXQGVRQ WKH WHDP ZHQW LQWR WKHLU Ă&#x20AC;UVW JDPH RI the regular season a little cold.

GRANTSBURG PIRATES FOOTBALL Pirates starting with a lot of newfacesthisfall Marty Seeger|Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Pirates football team added a couple of new faces to the roster this season, which could help bolster the success of an already successful team that has been steadily building wins under fourth-year head coach Adam Hale. Despite losing a very talented group of seniors to graduation &RDFK+DOH Hale has a bunch of new talent to work with and is excited to get the season under way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am excited to see what an almost completely new group can do as the season goes on. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior FODVVZDVP\Ă&#x20AC;UVWJURXSRIIUHVKPHQLQVRLW¡VEHHQ fun to see them work and improve over the years,â&#x20AC;? Hale said. In total, the team lost 12 seniors last year, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of talent and experience to replace, but the Pirates are still an early favorite to win the Lakeland North Conference among area coaches. They came away with a nice win over Cumberland in the season opener, 28-6, but it will be a challenging season nonetheless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the loss of 12 quality seniors, it will be tough, but I do believe this group is ready for the challenge and also has a few years of experience in our system,â&#x20AC;? Hale said. New to the team are second-team all-conference defensive back John Chenal, who is a sophomore this season and played for Frederic during the 2014 season, as well as Leo Chenal, who is a freshman. Both linebacker Mason McEvers and defensive back Avery Fagerberg return to the team and both were all-conference honorable mentions from 2014 for those positions. Offensive lineman Chase Covey and running back and defensive back Jaeger Staeven are also returning for their fourth season as varsity players. *UDQWVEXUJVRSKRPRUH-RKQ&KHQDOLVVXEGXHGE\DKRVWRI&XPEHUODQG%HDYHUWDFNOHUVGXULQJWKH3LUDWHVILUVWJDPH One of the keys to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success will be their RIWKHVHDVRQZKLFKWKH\ZRQ$OVRSLFWXUHGLV1R0DVRQ0F(YHUV z3KRWRE\6FRWW+RIIPDQ offensive line play, according to Hale, especially with the loss of three starters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also think how we come together as *5$176%85*3,5$7(6)227%$// a team with a lot of new faces will play a 6(1,256%UHWW$QGHUVRQ&KDVH&RYH\-DHJHU6WDHYHQ.HYLQ9ROOHQGRUI0DMHO6FKPDOW]0DVRQ 0F(YHUV big role,â&#x20AC;? said Hale. -81,256$XVWLQ%RZPDQ$XVWLQ2OVRQ$YHU\)DJHUEHUJ&KULV+HUPDQQ'DNRWD6FKXOW]*DUUHWW One thing that will be a team strength 2OVRQ-DORQ6YHQWHN-DFRE%DUQDUG-DNH:LFNOXQG-DUHG3HOWLHU0DWW/RXLV1LFN/DUVHQ:LOOLDP for the Pirates will be depth at their skill -RKQVRQ positions, as well as a good offseason in 623+2025(6+DXN0RULW]-DVH4XLPE\-RKQ&KHQDO.DOYLQ:DWW0LNHO/RXLV6SHQFHU%XQWLQJ 7\OHU6WHYHQV.\OH)DJQDQ )5(6+0(1/HR&KHQDO%HQ-RKQVRQ/XNH$QGHUVRQ7\UHOO%UDQGH'DYLG1HOVRQ%U\FH5RXIV the weight room according to Hale. 5HLV&RYH\&RG\1HOVRQ6FRWW$GROSKVRQ7DQQHU%HUJHU-RUGDQ*DIIQH\'DZVRQ5REHUWV&DOHE -RKQVRQ &2$&+ +($'&2$&+$GDP+DOH

Fast forward to 2015 and Luck is already 1-1 after a frustrating sea&RDFK.HQG]LRU son-opening loss against Prairie Farm and a lopsided victory over Birchwood during game two, 74-6. Despite their loss to Prairie Farm the Cardinals stand a good chance to win their way through the rest of the year unscathed, with a handful of talent. The Cardinals have five seniors and each player contributes to both sides of the ball. Senior Noah Mortel, a 6-foot6, 250-pound linebacker and tight end, was said to have recently signed on to play for the Division 1, North Dakota State University as a tackle, and senior linemen Jordan Jones, Parker Steen and Jared Hunter bring size and strength to the team, and are likely the best in the conference.

ST. CROIX FALLS SAINTS FOOTBALL Marty Seeger|Staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With roughly 35 athletes on the roster, the Saints football team isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big team considering the new conference alignment and their enrollment numbers. Yet this team has a lot of heart according to coach Grant Belisle and are a close-knit bunch of athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nice thing is, and what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy with, is this team has already really come together and really focused. They really push each other. The camaraderie has clicked really well, really early,â&#x20AC;? Belisle said. That could be the big key to winning as the team moves forward in the newly realigned Lakeland North Conference, but some teams will &RDFK%HOLVOH likely keep the coaching staff busy wondering what to expect, particularly IURP:DVKEXUQ%D\Ă&#x20AC;HOG6RXWK6KRUH It will also add a bit of travel time for games, yet Belisle and the Saints will be ready with what they know they have to work with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re new and fresh. Our offensive line â&#x20AC;Ś not a one has taken a varsity snap, so I mean weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working hard with them, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing on everything from picking up blitzes to run blocking and pass blocking and doing it hard,â&#x20AC;? Belisle said. The Saints do bring back some returning talent, particularly in the backfield with junior Tyler Henk, senior Chris Swanson and senior John Petherbridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all returning varsity backs who know the system and work hard,â&#x20AC;? Belisle said, adding that there are others on the team who could really blossom this fall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them have some potential that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they have yet, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try and bring that out of them.â&#x20AC;?

us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But I always feel like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re times where, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on our end at times. We need to take care of that, and I need to take better care of that as a coach. Making sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sound everywhere. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up special teams touchdowns.â&#x20AC;?

UNITY EAGLES FOOTBALL Eagles under new management with Cory Nelson Marty Seeger|Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After David Anderson retired as head coach of the Eagles, Cory Nelson has taken the helm at Unity and hopes to lead the team to success. Nelson understands where the program has been and has the experience at Unity. He was an assistant coach for Chetek football before moving to Unity where he was a middle school football coach and varsity assistant the previous two years. He was the Eagles offensive &RDFK1HOVRQ coordinator last year. He is most excited this season to be coaching what he feels are some of the best athletes in the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our athletes have put a tremendous amount of time into the weight room this past school year and summer. It was very apparent during our contact days and first week of practice. We have a fairly young coaching staff who communicate very well and we all have the same goals and expectations for our football program,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. +HKDVĂ&#x20AC;YHFRDFKHVUHWXUQLQJWRKHOS out from last year and re-added assistant Shaun Fisher, who took a year off last season, but ran the defense for several years before that. Josh Miller was also hired over the summer. He was an assistant at Chippewa Falls and head coach in Ashland before coming to Unity, where he teaches physical education. He will assist varsity and coach middle school football as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With being a new head coach and having a number of different assistant coaches, we have begun to change our football program here at Unity. We have always had a strong football program; however, we are looking to be a dominant force in our conference and to make deep playoff runs. With these goals and mindset, we have changed how we practice,

Kroll said he feels the team will be better at handling adversity this year and have more experience on both the offense and defensive line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve adjusted a few of our offensive sets to give the defenses a

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try to spread teams out a bit more at times as we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an enormous team, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a little quicker than we were last year.â&#x20AC;? Success, Kroll says, will depend on what it always does, and that boils down to blocking, tackling and protecting the football. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also need to play fast to win. But one thing that Kroll feels will be one of the biggest strengths is the character of the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our strength is our character. These are players who will play the game as

hard as they can, and they should be able to get through those down moments that happen in a game or season. Our leadership is very strong.â&#x20AC;? Experience will be the big question mark for the Tigers, however, but by the end of their second game Kroll says all 11 players will have had at least one varsity-level game under their belts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to offset being a little undersized with quickness and intellect.â&#x20AC;?

GRANTSBURG VOLLEYBALL Pirates another contenderforthe conferencetitle Marty Seeger|Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Pirates volleyball team was in a bit of a rebuilding phase over the past couple of seasons yet they were still able to make it back to the regional championship game against a very powerful Colfax team who ended their season in three sets. The Pirates fell second in the conference to the Luck Cardinals, another powerful force in the West Lakeland, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count Grantsburg out this season as they return a very strong bunch of girls, including three all-conference players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We return three all-conference players, strong seniors, experienced juniors, and talented new players,â&#x20AC;? said coach Deb Allaman-Johnson, who is in her 26th season of coaching. The three all-conference players include senior outside hitter Olivia Tucker, as well as senior Delia Labatt and junior Rhiana Pochman. Laura Drohman was also named as an all-conference h o n o r a b l e mention and only a junior this season, which will likely help push

$PEHU3HGHUVHQ

Grantsburg to the top of the heap once again in the conference standings, and possibly another magical tournament run. Along with those talented players, Allaman-Johnson has plenty to choose from again this season from the talent pool, as between 30 and 40 athletes showed up for the tryouts at the beginning of the year. The real test, however, will come in their game of the season at home against St. Croix Falls on Thursday, Sept. 1. The Saints appear to be a contender too this season, but several others will be hoping to knock off what is still one of the premier volleyball programs in Northwest Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the past few seasons, the Lakeland Conference has been one of the best. We expect tough competition from every conference team. Local fans can look forward to a lot of good volleyball,â&#x20AC;? Allaman-Johnson said.

50 years/from page 1 he says plenty of things have changed over the years, and in a way, so have the athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a doubt, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t black and white like it used to be,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that with age you realize that there are some circumstances that have to be considered.â&#x20AC;? Belanger said that video games and other technologies have changed athletes, yet many are now dedicating themselves to the weight room, something that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have when he played. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see us, out playing pickup

basketball, softball games, especially when we were younger. Now there are no games unless Mom and Pops drive them 50 miles to be a part of some AAU team,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said, adding that the many youth sports programs available to kids have changed parents, who are a lot more involved now than they used to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that has changed because of all the youth sports. Parents end up coaching those, and then they get more of a feeling of ownership and not only in that one thing that they did, but in general. Good, bad, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know â&#x20AC;Ś Different.â&#x20AC;?

Regardless of the many changes over the years, Belanger still has a huge passion and enthusiasm for the game and giving GLUHFWLRQWRDWKOHWHVRQDQGRIIWKHĂ&#x20AC;HOG Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of what he feels keeps him young. So many of the things Belanger does for the students, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tutoring, mentoring or simply being there for the kids, are things most donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to see on a daily basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come to school a lot of times and just hang around during lunch. When you talk to 15- to 18-year-olds that keeps you a little bit younger.â&#x20AC;? Over the years Belanger has also coached wrestling, basketball, summer baseball and track, so his involvement in the school district goes beyond the football field, yet at some point, he realizes, his coaching career will come to an end.

)UHGHULF¡VĂ&#x20AC;UVWVFULPPDJHRIWKHVHDVRQ Earlier this summer, the family did celebrate a week together but Belanger said he still feels bad about their anniversary falling during the football season. He said he and his wife often joke about when his tenure as a coach might end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always think one day Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to wake up and say, you know what, I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to do this anymore,â&#x20AC;? said Belanger, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But she says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to happen.

Foeller has a nice coaching resume over the past eight seasons with the 14, 15- and 16-and-under club level teams for Junior Olympic volleyball. Along with coaching clinics and completion of the coaching accreditation program through USA volleyball, Foeller is ready for her new role.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a great group of athletes and are dedicated to each other and to the sport. They are competitive, hardworking, and really fun to work with,â&#x20AC;? Foeller said.

Despite lower numbers Foeller says the team strength is their knowledge of the game and working together as a team. She said discipline will be important if

they want success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have put in a lot of hours and if they can stay focused and disciplined each match, one point at a time, they will succeed.â&#x20AC;?

She was out half of the season with a shoulder injury but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t 100 percent according to Saints head coach Alyssa Notermann. This year, however, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to go. Wondra was a starting setter both her freshman and sophomore seasons. So despite losing a starter to graduation the Saints technically gained two healthy starters back this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we only have one starter leave and we have five returning starters EDFNVRNLQGRIDĂ LSĂ RSRIODVW\HDUÂľ Notermann said, adding that the team has the potential to do great things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for us we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a great season last year, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just making sure HYHU\RQHVWD\VFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQWFRPLQJLQWRWKLV season, because we do have the ability to be a great team if we pull everything together and make it happen.â&#x20AC;?

Along with having veteran talent, Notermann said their servereceive is stronger this year and they have a stronger offense. She said they have potential to be a great blocking team but this early in the season theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there quite yet, which is something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be focusing on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of girls with a good vertical (jump) on the team, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just getting their footwork speed and the action speed for blocking â&#x20AC;Ś because we could be a good blocking team but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not there yet.

SIREN VOLLEYBALL Dragons return most of their talent from memorableĹ&#x201D;Ĺ&#x2019;Ĺ&#x201C;Ĺ&#x2013; season Marty Seeger|Staff writer SIREN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Despite a 3-9 conference record and 6-10 overall record for 2014, the Dragons volleyball team still managed to pull things together and earn a No. 2 seed in the WIAA playoffs. They even knocked off the No. 1 seeded Winter team on their way to a regional championship and their first sectional &RDFK6WDQIRUG volleyball appearance

VLQFH,WZDVDOVRWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWUHJLRQDO title under sixth-year head coach Caryn Stanford, and for her seventh season as head coach, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be optimism in Siren to try and go even further this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a team who is going to be very competitive and I believe that we are very improved, with seven seniors on the varsity team,â&#x20AC;? Stanford said. The Dragons lost two seniors to graduation in Emily Howe and Harriet Koball but gain back the main core of their roster, which includes seven seniors, many of whom, have seen varsity experience all four years. They include Emily Stiemann, Ashlee Rightman, Laurel Kannenberg, Caitlyn Daniels, Elizabeth Stanford, Aubriannah Larson and Alexandra Webster. One junior, Bayzhia Taylor, two sophomores, Abby Kosloski and Amy Stanford, and a freshman, Jade Horstman, make up the rest of the varsity squad.

During the regional title game last year, the Dragons front line produced balanced numbers with Daniels leading the way with 10 kills while Rightman, Stiemann and Lizzie Stanford HDFKFRQWULEXWHGĂ&#x20AC;YH kills. Larson was their main setter with 24 assists in the match. Sirenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball program also has good numbers in the JV program, with 27 athletes, the most in seven years, which will also allow the Dragons to have a C-squad team.

UNITY VOLLEYBALL SeniorĹ&#x2018;heavyEagles hope to stay in the conferencemix Marty Seeger|Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Unity volleyball team is deep in talent compared to recent years, which might PDNHFKRRVLQJJLUOVWRĂ&#x20AC;OOWKH rotation a challenging job for fourth-year coach Jennifer DeLozier. The Eagles have six seniors and all have seen varsity action along with a handful of juniors and a sophomore that saw plenty of time on the court last season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m heavy on seniors,â&#x20AC;? &RDFK'H/R]LHU DeLozier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping for a good season with them. I feel like they should be able to step up and I feel like it should be a good season for us.â&#x20AC;? The Eagles did lose one of the most talented liberos and defensive specialists in the conference

to graduation, Olivia Nelson, as well as Paige Lunsmann, who was a solid defensive presence on the court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a couple of kids that are working in that position hard at it, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping that with their hard work that we can replace that,â&#x20AC;? DeLozier said. With several girls playing club volleyball over the summer, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely be ahead of the curve when the season gets under way, but DeLozier feels, like many others do, that this could be a year where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, on any given night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be really competitive this year because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be that one team (that stands out).â&#x20AC;? As of right now DeLozier feels they have two of the best setters in the conference, and they work well together. She feels their hitting should be consistent as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wild card is the defensive side of it. With losing Olivia, and losing Paige, because she was a good defensive person too, that thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where our question mark is going to come in a little bit. I think we were tough servers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the defensive part of it â&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to see if we can cover that loss there.â&#x20AC;?

be Chris Kuechenmeister, who just got back from basic training.

tagging along during practices and will be a nice addition to the team.
