The annual report by End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin includes both homicide victims as well as suicides by perpetrators. During a ceremony outside the state Capitol Monday, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Executive Director Patti Seger said the idea of the report is to raise of awareness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hope is that in calling attention to the known risk factors, it will help law enforcement, advocates, health-care professionals and concerned family members and friends, and victims themselves better evaluate just how dangerous many domestic violence situations can be,â&#x20AC;? Seger said. The report found that 57 percent of the victims were killed after they ended their relationship with a perpetrator or when they were taking steps to leave. - Shawn Johnson | WPR News

The state announced in August that qualifying schools would receive $300 per student over and above the $150 per pupil aid given to all public school districts. Siren is one of 137 eligible Wisconsin districts. Per pupil funding is especially good news when enrollment is up. According to interim Superintendent Dr. Kevin Shetler, attendance numbers are up by 10 students over last year. Shetler also added that the balanced budget is due in part to staff attrition, with a net savings of approximately $100,000. Although the balanced budget is welcomed news, the board recognizes that over the past few years it has been forced to cut operational expenses by putting off costly maintenance projects and equip-

Four arrested on drug charges BURNETT COUNTY - A search of a residence in the Sand Lake Community of the St. Croix Chippewa Indians resulted in four arrests on numerous drug charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the second search warrant we have executed over the past month and another good amount of methamphetamine was recovered,â&#x20AC;? stated Frank Taylor, St. Croix Tribal Chief of Police. On Monday, Sept. 14, the St. Croix Tribal Police Department, along with ofO02?@3?<:A52(6?2;.;1,2/@A2?=<9602 departments, executed a search warrant at a residence located on St. Croix Street in the Sand Lake Community. Several people were present in the resi-

dence at the time of the search and four people were arrested. Those arrested were Shannon Bellanger, arrested on intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia; Buck Zehner, arrested on possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and probation violation; Janeen Mosay, arrested on possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia; and Allan Mosay, arrested on possession of drug paraphernalia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can tell you that the community is tired of the drug problem not only here but around this county. This is not just a

tribal issue. This is a countywide problem and by working together and sharing information, we will see a difference,â&#x20AC;? said Taylor. A search warrant executed earlier in the month at a residence on Gaslyn Lake on tribal land resulted in the seizure of close to 10 grams of methamphetamine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just the tip of this investigation.

Grantsburg School District honors school board members GRANTSBURG - The Wisconsin Association of School Boards has set Oct. 4-10 as Wisconsin School Board Appreciation Week. It is a time to build awareness and understanding of the vital function an elected board of education plays in our communities. Grantsburg School District is joining all public school districts across the state to celebrate Wisconsin School Board Appreciation Week to honor local board members for their commitment to the Grantsburg community, its children and families throughout the state of Wisconsin through iForward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes strong schools to build a strong community, and these men and women devote countless hours to making sure our schools are helping every child learn at a higher level,â&#x20AC;? Superintendent Joni Burgin shares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They make the tough decisions every month and spend many hours studying education issues and regulations in order to provide the kind of accountability our citizens expect.â&#x20AC;? Burgin said the key work of school boards is to raise student achievement by creating a vision for what the community wants the school district to be and for making student achievement the top priority; establishing standards for what students will be expected to learn and be able to do; ensuring progress is measured to be sure the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals are achieved and students are learning at expected levels; being accountable for their decisions and actions by continually tracking and reporting results; creating a safe, orderly climate where students can learn and teachers can teach; forming partnerships with others in the community to solve common problems; and focusing attention on the need for continuous im=?<C2:2;A/F>B2@A6<;6;4?2O;6;4.;1 revising issues related to student achieve-

Luck teachers create brain-based learning curriculum Mary Stirrat | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Studies as well as everyday experiences show that students learn best when they can be involved, when information can be broken down into chunks, and they can make connections between the different things they are learning. Over the past three years, Luck High School teachers Matt Dunlap and Judy Wicklund have been developing a social studies curriculum that integrates these and other components of what is known as brain-based learning. Many of the principles are â&#x20AC;&#x153;instinctual,â&#x20AC;? said Wicklund in a written report presented to the school board at its Monday, Sept. 28 meeting. K<<1A2.052?@B@B.99FO4B?2<BA5<D kids work best and have done it for decades,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but now we know why we do it. Recent brain research shows the @062;A6O0/.@6@3<?D5.AD2NC2/22;1<6;4 and tells us how to make it even better.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common knowledge that children learn best when they can be active, said Wicklund, and research now shows that a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain, after 20 minutes of inactivity, is saying that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to sleep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know what the brain reaction is, so you know more how to counter it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving in all four directions is like

a brain reset. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a psychological effect as well â&#x20AC;&#x201D; students are active, not passive, both physically and mentally.â&#x20AC;? Education, said Wicklund, is much more effective and pleasant when these natural tendencies are used rather than fought against. An example of working with natural tendencies rather than against is breaking information into two, three or four parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know this instinctively, but brain ?2@2.?05 .3O?:@ A56@L @.61 ,6089B;1 Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why people can remember phone numbers, and why Social Security and driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license numbers are segmented. Association is also a natural instinct. We often remember something by associating it with where we were or with colors or with other events. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you can remember dates by other dates,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We learn by making connections, so if we use that, kids can remember better. The more connections, the more quickly knowledge and skills are assimilated and retrieved.â&#x20AC;? During studies of the Native Americans, Dunlap and Wicklund tapped into this â&#x20AC;&#x153;learning by connectingâ&#x20AC;? idea by moving students from one area of the campus to another, using props to reinforce the themes.

Kids sit in the swamp and read that the Seminole held off the U.S. Army when they were outnumbered.â&#x20AC;? Thinking in and recognizing patterns in different contexts is an important part of the learning process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a skill used in math, science, music, art, history, grammar literature, geography, athletics,â&#x20AC;? said Wicklund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a key element to thinking.â&#x20AC;? Being able to think about a pattern in a different context, she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a complex thinking exercise.â&#x20AC;? For example, she said, students might sample maple candy and make something out of birch bark, connecting those to northern trees.

of patterns is a key part of brain-based activities,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tying that to cause and effect deepens the thought process.â&#x20AC;? Novelty, said Wicklund, is another thing that brains thrive on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even the novelty of taking the elevator to a site instead of the stairs makes the brain more receptive to learning,â&#x20AC;? she said, referring to students going to the lowest part of the building to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seminole swamp.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also know that the most effective learning involves senses, so we often add taste, smell and touch to sound and sight,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brain-based education is interdisciplinary,â&#x20AC;? Wicklund concluded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and social studies is ideal for incorporating math, English and science skill and knowledge, along with art, music and history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Dunlap and I have been creating the social studies curriculum for the last three years, and it continues to evolve as D2O;1/2AA2?D.F@A<<332?05.992;42A< our students.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mary Stirrat, with information from Luck Schools

School board updated on special education needs

Increased student numbers means more paraprofessional time needed

Mary Stirrat | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Monday, Sept. 28, regular monthly meeting of the Luck School Board was uneventful, with the majority of the short time spent answering questions about the $2.3 million building project (see separate story). In her report to the board, elementary Principal Ann Goldbach noted that six new students with disabilities have entered the school district this year. Three special needs students are now in middle and high school, which means that paraprofessional time is now shared between

all three schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has given us less (paraprofessional) time in the elementary schools,â&#x20AC;? she said. District Superintendent Chris Schultz said that he, Goldbach, and high school Principal Brad Werner have discussed the issue, and believe that adding nine hours per week to the current 20-hour paraprofessional schedule will meet the need. Additional cost for the year will be about $5,600, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate the principals working D6A5 :2 A< O;1 @<:2A56;4 A5.A :22A@ the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs,â&#x20AC;? Schultz said, adding that the nine extra hours will do that without â&#x20AC;&#x153;breaking the budget.â&#x20AC;? In addition, said Goldbach, a schedule has been worked out to allow staff to oversee safe transition from the special education setting to the regular classroom, which means students can

Community education sees healthy growth Mary Stirrat | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Luckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community education program has been steadily growing, doubling the number of participants since 2008, program director Amy Aguado said at the Monday, Sept. 28, annual meeting of the Luck School District. The number of classes offered each year has also nearly doubled. In 2008, said Aguado, the school offered 49 community education classes and drew 380 participants. In the 2014-15 school year, 92 classes were held with 765 participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Luck School District,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we know that our educations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop at age 18, or 24, or 44, or 64, or 84. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lifelong process.â&#x20AC;? Community education is celebrating its 104th anniversary this year, she said, adding that, in 1911, Wisconsin D.@A52O?@A@A.A26;A52;.A6<;A<=.@@9246@9.A6<;@B=porting evening classes and community education style programming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program began in the Milwaukee Public Schools,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because a large number of immigrants were coming to the southern part of the state to work in the factories.â&#x20AC;? Many of the workers did not speak English very well, so the schools began holding classes to accommodate adults needing to learn English as a second language. Now, she said, Wisconsin has about 100 community education programs. Wherever you are, Aguado pointed out, you have choices to make. Sometimes, she said, her own children â&#x20AC;&#x153;resort to the age-old, irrefutable, black-and-white game of rock-paper-scissors.â&#x20AC;? For lifelong learning, said Aguado, a humorous way

St. Croix Valley Senior Center issues front and center

City moves forward with investigation after preliminary engineering report

Greg Marsten | Staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Concerns over the structural integrity of a portion of the St. Croix Valley Senior Center in downtown St. Croix Falls warrants further analyses, and possible action by the city after a preliminary inspection report by MSA Engineering was revealed at the Monday, Sept. 28, regular meeting of the St. Croix Falls Common Council. At issue is deteriorating concrete blocks in the lower portions of the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north and east walls, which ofO06.9@3?<:A52@2;6<?02;A2?5.C2?.6@21?21P.4@<C2? since this spring, seeking action and repairs of the cityowned center, which was originally built just over 40 years ago as a Masonic Lodge. The Masons later consolidated their local lodges to Frederic, leaving the building empty for several years. It was later purchased by the Eagle Valley Bank and in effect donated to the city as a senior center, with a contract written up between the city and the senior center in 2003. @A5206AF6@A52O;.9<D;2?<3A52/B6916;4A52F5.1 2;46;22?6;4O?:#(1<.@A?B0AB?.96;C2@A64.A6<;<3 the exterior damage several weeks ago, and that report ?.6@21>B6A2.32D?21P.4@.AA52#<;1.F:22A6;4 In that reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive summary, they pull few punches, stating at the outset that they believe the building is â&#x20AC;&#x153;structurally compromised and unsafeâ&#x20AC;? as they detailed their testing, which led to the concrete block falling apart further. They state the damage is â&#x20AC;&#x153;potentially serious,â&#x20AC;? saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;... potentially the wall could collapse into the interior,â&#x20AC;? further calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;a health and safety issue.â&#x20AC;? The report goes on to recommend that use of the building either needs to be stopped outright or at least limited, so that the back 25 to 30 feet of the structure should be blocked off until repairs are made. It was with those dire words that several questions emerged for the center and the city, drawing a large crowd of supporters to the Monday meeting. Mayor Brian Blesi tired to temper the straightforward conclusion as he outlined what the city may want to do to deal with the deterioration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met with the seniors, and there are some options,â&#x20AC;? 92@6@.61K)52F0<B91O;1.A2:=<?.?F;2D5<:2OE A56@<;2<?O;1.9<;42?A2?:;2D5<:2BAA520<;sensus was that they want this building repaired.â&#x20AC;? Blesi suggested a more detailed structural engineering look at the structure, so they can develop a scope of work for a repair plan, and thus start to solicit bids on a repair.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sell us the building for a dollar, let us take care of the fixing.â&#x20AC;? - BrenNel Ward

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there is going to be some expense there,â&#x20AC;? Blesi added. There was some discussion on what the property and building might be worth, and how that plays into whether it was worth repairing, as the property value was approximately $25,000 with possible improved values of around $150,000, which Blesi said was offered â&#x20AC;&#x153;... only for context.â&#x20AC;? But with that came other possible ways to assist with the repair costs, including capitalizing on the fact that the center is not just for St. Croix Falls seniors, but has â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Croix Valleyâ&#x20AC;? in its very name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a regional center,â&#x20AC;? city Administrator Joel Peck noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dresser, Eureka, the Town of St. Croix Falls, Cushing, etc. We might want to send letters to other municipalities to participate in some form of the repair.â&#x20AC;? Senior center President BrenNel Ward spoke to the concerns and raised a possibility of the building being donated outright to the senior center, allowing them to OE6A.AA526?<D;=.02 K,21<;NAD.;A.A2:=<?.?FOEL,.?1@.61=<6;A6;4 to offers and rough estimates they have already had to @5<?2B=.;1OEA52D.99@K(299B@A52/B6916;43<?.1<99.?92AB@A.820.?2<3A52OE6;4L Blesi called that â&#x20AC;&#x153;an option,â&#x20AC;? but added that the engineering report â&#x20AC;&#x153;still stands ... and means the back of the building would still need to be cordoned off, and that the center would then need to have their own insurance, outside the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is some risk,â&#x20AC;? Blesi added. Ward said the back portion of the building has been cordoned off and will not be used until it is shored up <?OE21/BAA520<B;06916@0B@@21D5.AA<1<;2EA.;1 came up with having city workers excavate areas alongside the problem areas, so they can get a more detailed structural analysis of the damage for more detailed estimates on repair bids. Alongside that, the city will also send out letters to affected municipalities, as well as have their lawyer look into the selling of the building as an option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But opening it (the walls) up will allow others to see what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up against,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of what path we go down, it has to be done.â&#x20AC;? The council supported the efforts to move ahead with a more detailed study, as well as looking into other options.

=>C74A2>D=28;02C8>= Accountant Brock Geyen, of CliftonLarsonAllen, gave a detailed audit report for 2104, generally giving the city high marks, but noting last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adjustment to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unassigned fund balance, which was affected by several 9.?422E=2;16AB?2@6;09B16;4.;2DB@21O?2A?B08.@ well as suggesting ways the city can best address a long?B;;6;496/?.?F3B;112O06A2.9@<;<A21D.A2?3B;1 12O06A@.;1A5206AFN@).E;0?2:2;A.96@A?60AD56056@ still producing a positive balance, unlike many municipalities. K%C2?.99A5206AF@22:@A</26;4<<1O;.;06.952.9A5L Geyen said. The council approved a conditional use permit for Menards, Inc. to expand their facility on Hwy. 8, following St. Croix Falls Plan Commission recommendations. That expansion is actually less of an expansion and more of just enclosing portions of their current structure that are in the open, amounting to just over 20,000 square feet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually just enclosing an area already fenced in,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said. Again following plan commission recommendations, the council approved an amendment to the city code allowing ancillary structures in areas zoned as conservancy, such as in parklands. The change would allow rest rooms, concession stands, pavilions and limited-use storage on those lands. The issue emerged in recent weeks as the St. Croix Falls School District has proposed building a combined-

B@2@A?B0AB?2.AA5206AFN@3<<A/.99O291<;+6;02;A(A?22A That structure would include rest rooms, concession stands and locker rooms, as well as offseason equipment storage in an area near or on what is currently a tennis court. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s codes do not allow permanent structure on such conservancy land, and might mean the city can build a rest room at other city parklands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would need this if we wanted to do any enhancements at any city parks, also,â&#x20AC;? Blesi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the cleanest way and corrects the limits in the past,â&#x20AC;? Peck added. The council discussed how best to update and enhance the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, and while they had an estimate from an agency that does many municipal websites, they decided to seek other bids and options to bring forward at the next regular council meeting. The council set a date of Nov. 16 for a public hearing on a proposal to vacate a portion of Franklin Street along the river, as the adjacent property owners are seeking to buy that vacant land to add to their own property.

In his annual address on the state of education in Wisconsin, state Superintendent of Public Instruc Instruction Tony Evers said public school teachers across America have been disheartened by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;drumbeatâ&#x20AC;? of education legislation and criticism of their work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may make for great political theater, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making it more difO0B9A3<?<B?A2.052?@A<@A.FA52 course,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grit, perseverance and resilience can only go so far when our educators work is chal-

Conservative Republicans seem to want more than just control over administrative rules â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which are like laws. One GOP push is under way in the Capitol to amend the state constitution and remove the school superintendentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job as an elec elective position. The governor would be able to appoint the school chief under that plan. State Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, R-West Allis, the chief author of the amendment, said it would make education more accountable. Evers said making the job a political appointment would be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sad attack on our democracy and our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history.â&#x20AC;? Amending the state constitution requires approval by two consecu consecutive Legislatures, and then passage in a statewide vote. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough sell to tell the public that a governor, whoever it may be, is smarter than the voters. The expected victory in the Su Supreme Court case may be all that Republicans really need.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a long way from the age of silent movies, and the power of the press is being greatly affected by the changing media landscape.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As news coverage democratizes and as producers proliferate, the fabled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;power of the pressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; may di diminish,â&#x20AC;? warned Carl Session Stepp, University of Maryland journalism professor, in a recent article in Amer American Journalism Review. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without that power, how will news organiza organizations stand up for journalists, such as those pushed around by police in Ferguson, Missouri, or targeted abroad by terrorists? Or against the Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backward policies on leaks and secrecy?â&#x20AC;? Those sorts of questions are why the theme of the 2015 National Newspaper Week -- â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Power of the Pressâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is so relevant. This year is the 75th anniversary of National Newspaper Week. It was created in 1940 by the Newspaper Association Managers as a time to celebrate the newspaper industry.

The week, which this year runs Oct. 4-10, is a chance to remind our communities of what newspapers mean to them, by editorializing about our watchdog role, touting our coverage of local government and politics, and reiterating our commitment to providing reliable community information and public notice. Of course, maintaining the power of the press doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end with National Newspaper Week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a yearround priority. We all know the power of the press is still a force to be reckoned with across this nation.

"#$#%#&#'#(#)#*#+#,#$#%#) Dear Gov. Walker:

Welcome back to Wisconsin, no sarcasm intended. Full disclosure: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never voted for you, but like all of your constituents, I have a stake in the future of our state. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised my children here, and my three grandchildren are growing up here as well. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made statements and adopted policies that have divided the people of Wisconsin in a way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been divided be before, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your prerogative, and I understand that elections do have consequences. During last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gubernatorial campaign, you said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My plan is, if the people of the state of Wisconsin elect me on Nov. 4, to be here for four years. Tonette and I had to work pretty hard three times now in the past four years to run for governor. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a position Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m committed to.â&#x20AC;? To me, that meant you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be running for president. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll admit I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised when you did, I think it hurt your credibil credibility with the people of Wisconsin, and explains, at least in part, your current 39-percent approval rating in the state. Now that your campaign has ended, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering â&#x20AC;&#x201C; did your experience as a presidential candidate humble you? You went from front-runner to less than one-half of one percent support in a little over two months. That sounds like a bitter pill to swallow. I heard a lot of spin about how bland you were on the campaign trail and in the debates. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see you that way. I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a reasonably good speaker who can communicate clearly with voters when you want to. Instead, I think you got swept up in the mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insatiable appetite for the circus atmosphere around Donald Trump, and you lost your bearings. When Trump got all kinds of attention for saying outrageous things in an outrageous way, you, consciously or not, adopted some of his wacky ideas and spun out a few of your own as well. I submit the month of August as sup-

At the beginning of that disastrous month, you were still in third place nationally in the Fox News poll.

Your poll numbers dropped an average of almost 5 percent after that debate, never to recover. The message you seemed to take from that debate was to be more â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trump-like.â&#x20AC;? A few days later, you said your views on immigration were â&#x20AC;&#x153;very similarâ&#x20AC;? to Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and you followed that up with .@2?62@<3P6=P<=@<;/6?A5?645A06A6zenship after Trump came out for repeal of the 14th amendment. On Monday, Aug. 17, when asked at the Iowa State Fair if you, like Trump, supported an end to birthright citizenship, you replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, absolutely going forward.â&#x20AC;? By Friday of that week, you told CNBC, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not taking a position on it one way or another.â&#x20AC;? Then, on Sunday, on ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Week,â&#x20AC;? you said you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested in repealing the 14th Amendment. Three different answers within a week. As the month wore on, you turned your attention to foreign affairs, not your strong suit. On Friday, Aug. 28, you called on the president to cancel the visit of the Chinese president. We should â&#x20AC;&#x153;take China to the woodshed, not the White House,â&#x20AC;? you said. The interviewer reminded you that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

met with President Xi in 2013 and ap appeared on Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state-run television in 2012, and that the cyberattacks and human rights abuses had been occurring then as well. In retrospect, you looked like you were pandering, and worse yet, authenticity, something voters seem to crave this time around, had gone by the wayside. -<BO;6@521<33A52:<;A5<;B4 30 on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Pressâ&#x20AC;? with the statement that building a wall on the U.S. - Canada border was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;legitimate issue for us to look at.â&#x20AC;? Talk about fodder for comedians and late-night talk show hosts. You, who are known for staying on message, had veered so far off track by the end of the month that your campaign had become unrecognizable to some of your supporters. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why you decided to focus so heavily on immigration policy, which you had little experience with and ultimately proved to be disastrous for your campaign. Increasingly desperate, your words and actions had become a primer on how not to run a presidential campaign. In September, when all was lost, you returned to familiar ground, talking about stripping federal workers of their rights in much the same way you did in Wisconsin. You threw in a proposal for a national right-to-work law and the elimination of the National Labor Relations Board. You received only polite applause and some boos when you rolled out these ideas at a town hall meeting, an indication that the end D.@;2.? AA52O;.912/.A2F<B?9<D standing in the polls meant that you had fewer chances to answer questions, though I thought you did well when you had the opportunity. Then there was the statement â&#x20AC;&#x153;suspendingâ&#x20AC;? your campaign last week. After months of talking about how bad things are under President Obama, you said, in a message to the remaining candidates, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of talking about how bad things are, we want to hear how we can make them better for everyone.â&#x20AC;?

And the â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyoneâ&#x20AC;? you spoke of certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to private or public sector union members, who you seem to have a continuing vendetta against, witness this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call to reform civil service, a system you previously said provides â&#x20AC;&#x153;protection that workers have thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important in the state of Wisconsin.â&#x20AC;? Then, you said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to 092.?A52O291IK ?2:6;1F<BA5.A when you announced your candidacy, you said that running for president was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for me,â&#x20AC;? and that you were â&#x20AC;&#x153;humbled to be a candidate.â&#x20AC;? Two things occur to me: God must be pretty O0892D52?2(0<AA,.982?6@0<;02?;21 and that, far from being humble, you 5.C2.;<C2?6;P.A21612.<3F<B?6:portance in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for the country. Sorry to be so Trump-like blunt, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I see it. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next is what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wondering. I think you have it in you to be a governor of all the people. I heard some of the terrible threats you received during the Act 10 controversy, threats against your wife and your sons. That was ugly stuff, and I sincerely hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in the past. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for all of us to move on. But how do we do that? I humbly (can I use that word in dar daring to suggest what you, the governor, might do?) propose that you come up with a short list of things you might do that virtually everyone could agree on. Things that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain loaded language, that unite rather than divide. You know, things like repairing our crumbling infrastructure, or putting more money and resources into edu educating our children. The basics. Just a couple of ideas, maybe you have better ones. But I think the time is ripe for a new beginning in Wisconsin. Do you agree? I hope so. My best to you, A Concerned Constituent

Democrats bristled at the remarks, noting that the funding in question did not go toward abortions, but to family plan planning and health screening for the poor. Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison, said there was no way local health clinics could pick up the slack, especially in underserved though they are out in the woods care carelessly spraying bullets around. There is absolutely zero evidence that hunting in state parks is dangerous and Risser knows it.

School taxes decrease at Luck Levy, mill rate still go down with $2.3 million project included Mary Stirrat | Staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Luck School Districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2015-16 budget, including a tax levy of $3,119,529, was approved by the handful of district residents in attendance at the annual district meeting held Monday, Sept. 28. Although the levy includes payment on $2.3 million in new debt for a variety of projects to improve the safety, accessibil6AF2;2?4F23O062;0F.;192.?;6;42;C6?<;ment of the school, it is still $166,700 lower than last year. In outlining the budget at the Sept. 28 meeting, school Superintendent Chris Schultz said the tax levy and mill rate de096;21@64;6O0.;A9F/20.B@2<3.



 increase in state aid. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s levy of $3,286,273, when distributed across the equalized property value in the district, meant a taxing mill rate of $11.05 on every $1,000 in property values. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mill rate, including the tax levy on the new debt, is estimated at $10.51 per $1,000. Property valued at $100,000 last year paid $1,105 in school taxes. Taxes this year on property valued at $100,000 will be $1,051. The mill rate is estimated at this point because the equalized property valuation in the district is not available from the state until mid-October. Dividing the total taxable property value by the tax levy provides the taxing mill rate. Included in the total levy is $2,656,674 for the general fund, $222,855 for debt service, $210,000 for the new projects and $30,000 for community education. According to Schultz, the reason that Luck is receiving more state aid this year is because the property values in the district decreased. Information presented at the annual meeting shows that property values have been declining since 2008, when they reached a high of just over $360 million. The 2014 estimated value in the district is just under $297 million, down about $600,000 from the previous year.

Marking a 50-year drive Priscilla Bauer | Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Leon Miller was just 21 years old when he started driving a school bus. This year marks his 50th year behind the wheel. Back in 1966, 21 was the age required to get a license to drive a school bus and Miller was ready to make a move from his job at Northern Manufacturing. Miller grew up in Falun where two of his neighbors, Wilbur Evenson and Gene Gronlund, were bus contractors. Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncle, Einer Miller, was also a bus contractor, and his father, Viggo Miller, drove one of his routes. When Gene Gronlund retired from driving bus, Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father and uncle thought it would be a good thing for Leon to buy his own bus and start driving, too.

Now, almost all are diesel and almost all have automatic transmissions.â&#x20AC;? Gas prices, too, have made a notable change since 1966. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gas was probably a little over a quarter a gallon when I started driving,â&#x20AC;? remembered Miller. Miller said when he started there were no communications with other drivers and the school staff while on the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back then there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any radios or cell phones for communication with the

Miller has many stories and memories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my special memories is of one winter day when it was starting to get dark and I was driving to deliver the last little kindergarten girl to her home. I heard this little voice sweetly singing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus Loves Me.â&#x20AC;? I had my bus camera on, so it was recorded, and it was so touching that I saved that tape and listened several times afterwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another memory is the time a little girl was sitting in the seat behind me, and as I was driving down the road, she stood up and placed her hands over my eyes, and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Guess who!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She had no idea that was dangerous, but that was a little scary!â&#x20AC;?

construction materials and techniques known to resist mold, and ensuring that staff or contractors use safe practices for identifying and remediating mold. They will also educate residents on ways to prevent mold from reoccurring in the future. Priority will be given to units with the most evidence of mold. One tribe in Wisconsin will receive $800,000 of these funds, the Lac Courte Oreilles Band of Lake Superior Chippewa located near Hayward. There are a total of 11 tribes in Wisconsin. Last year, nationwide, nine tribes received grants to remove unhealthy levels of mold.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Danielle Danford with submitted information

Participation in UW-Madison online courses outstrips national average

Parth Shah | WPR News Participation in the University of Wisconsin - Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;massive online open coursesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also known as MOOCs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has skyrocketed to well above the national average following an overhaul of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offerings. MOOCs are online courses that colleges and universities offer to the public free of charge, many of which garner thousands of users from across the globe. The classes made major headlines a few years ago when they were widely touted as a threat to higher education. When UW-Madison launched its pilot suite of MOOCs in fall of 2013, nearly 40,000 participants from around the globe enrolled per class. However, while enrollment was high, follow-through was not: The MOOCs only had a 2 percent active participation rate. The majority of those users were from outside the U.S., and only about 1 percent of participants were from Wisconsin.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted a more active, engaged participant base, even if it meant a smaller participant cohort,â&#x20AC;? said Lika Balenovich, the lead communicator for UW-Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MOOC program. The university launched its second phase of MOOC offerings this past January, but this time it took a differ2;A.==?<.05,52?2.@0<B?@2@3?<:A52O?@A=5.@25.1 covered broad topics such as human evolution and globalization, the new courses all focused on one common theme â&#x20AC;&#x201D; environmental issues and the Midwest. In addition to specifying the course offerings, the university hosted face-to-face events in Wisconsin on the course topics. As a result, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a steep drop in enrollment: The average MOOC size in 2015 amounts to about 8,000 users. Participation, however, has skyrocketed to an average of nearly 57 percent. MOOCs are generally self-taught. Users watch videos

created by the course instructor, complete various assessments and participate in online forums to learn the content. Because MOOCs do not grant college credit, participants generally have different expectations for the amount of information they want from the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many participants register because it seems like an interesting course or something they would like to do in an ideal situation, but when the practicalities of actually spending the time to do it arise, they simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t participate,â&#x20AC;? said Professor Alan Carroll. The number of Wisconsinites participating in UW MOOCs also shot up. Each course is roughly four weeks long. The next course to be offered is focused on forest ecology, and began this week.

Spooner School District exceeded revenue limit in 2014-15 but she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working for the district then. The Register was referred to Shannon Grindell, the district business manager, about other questions regarding the revenue error. A scheduled conference call to discuss those questions was not met by the district. A follow-up email and a voice mail to the district have yet to be returned to the Register. Looking back, the district also exceeded the revenue limit in 2010 by $6,505. Adorable 2+ BRs,

There was a miscalculation of overcounting the pupil â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the student count â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the error came from,â&#x20AC;? said Diana Maas, Spooner Area School District communications director. The general aid school districts receive from the state is generally derived from prior-year cost and prior-year pupil data. If there was a miscount of the number of students, over in this case, the district would have been allotted an excess of aid from the state. #..@D.@;NA.D.?263A52@05<<916@A?60A;<A6O2116@trict residents of the situation because the district realized the error in November of 2014 and contacted DPI,

Bears spoil Vikings homecoming game

Marty Seeger|Staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Frederic head coach Ken Belanger was honored on Friday, Sept. 25, for his 50 years as a head football coach prior to the Vikings game against Clayton. The homecoming game drew a large home crowd as well as former players who were coached by Belanger, including those from Zumbrota, Minn., where Belanger was head coach for 35 years. Despite the well-wishes and surprise party for Belanger after the game, it was Clayton who stole the show in all four quarters as the Bears rolled to a 54-16 win. The Vikings couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to catch any breaks throughout the game as the Bears special teams came up with the momentum early.

Luck football team scores 90 over Winter  !  !$

    ! $ Luck 90, Winter 50 Marty Seeger|Staff writer WASHBURN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Yes, you read the above score correctly. As is the case in many eight-player football games, scoring can happen often, and in the case of the Luck/ Winter matchup on Friday, Sept. 25, fans

got to see plenty of offense. The Cardinals worked their way back into the top of the Lakeland eight-player standings and improved to a 4-1 record with their win over Winter, and are celebrating homecoming week this week. They will play host Northwood/Solon Springs, Friday, Oct. 3.

Marty Seeger|Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local cross-country teams are starting to work toward their peak performances as the end of the season continues to get closer. The Lakeland Conference meet is already on the horizon, scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13, and the area could see several individuals and potentially some teams go to state this fall.

Gun hunt for hunters with disabilities opens in October MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More than 100 landowners in 46 counties and 74,000 acres are enrolled in the disabled deer hunt program in 2015, and those who plan to participate in the hunt, which runs Oct. 3-11, should look forward to another great year in the O291 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cooperation of landowners is critical to our ability to offer this unique opportunity,â&#x20AC;? said Adam Murkowski, disabled hunt program coordinator for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2014, over 500 hunters par-

ticipated in the disabled deer hunt and we hope that level of participation continues in the future.â&#x20AC;? The disabled gun deer hunt is only open on properties that are enrolled in the program. Hunters with a valid disabled hunting permit can contact a participating landowner to sign up for the hunt by Sept. 1 each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;October is really a great time to be outdoors in Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? said Murkowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This hunt offers a tremendous opportunity for landowners to maintain deer

herds in balance with the habitat and help carry on a tradition that we at DNR are very excited to provide.â&#x20AC;? Hunters should contact sponsors directly and be prepared to provide their name, contact information and DNR customer ID number. To be eligible, hunters must possess a valid Class A, Class B long-term permit that allows shooting from a vehicle, or Class C or D disabled hunting permit. As in the past, eligible hunters must also possess a gun deer license.

Landowners interested in enrolling their property to host a disabled deer hunt in the future should do so by June 1, 2016. Assistance to disabled hunters and landowners may also be possible in certain parts of the state through organizations dedicated to enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities for disabled persons. For more information and a list of spon sponsors for the 2015 season, search the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, for keywords dis disabled deer hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from wi.dnr.gov

HAYWARD â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Wisconsin Inter Tribal Child Care Association will be featuring William Kellibrew IV, activist and expert of violence, at the Lac Courte Oreilles Convention Center, 13767 W. CTH B in Hayward on Friday, Oct. 9. The conference will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kellibrew, from Washington, D.C., is an international advocate for civil, human, women, children and victims rights. He is a soughtafter speaker on violence, trauma, trauma-informed care and children exposed to violence. At age 6, his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbor sexually abused him, and at age 10, he watched helplessly as his mother and 12-year-old brother were shot in their living room by his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged boyfriend. Kellibrew has appeared on Oprah, MSNBC, BBC and many others. The White House recognized him as a Champion of Change. As a child, Kellibrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ,8;;80< 4;;81A4F+ passion was to be a performer. After witnessing the murders of his mother and brother, Kellibrew continued to learn his craft, but with immense challenges and barriers from violence, sexual abuse and trauma. Spiraling into a world of truancy, violence, trauma, depression, substance use, gangs, guns and suicidal ideation, he nearly gave up on life. Today, he believes that his challenges were disguised as opportunities. In this presentation, Kellibrew engages the audience on the importance of core values and how they play a role in preventing the barriers and challenges from claiming our youth and their potential. He also focuses on building on young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strengths versus A526?12O06A@ â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we see children as our most precious resource,â&#x20AC;? Kellibrew says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we value them and the role that they play for our future.â&#x20AC;?

Relatively new as a bike racing format in the United States, cyclocross racing has been a fall signature end to the bike racing season in Europe for years.

Education fair set for Oct. 8 RICE LAKE - The Wisconsin Education Fair, featuring representatives from approximately 80 postsecondary institutions, will be in Rice Lake on Thursday, Oct. 8. The education fair will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. in the UW-Barron County gymnasium. This program, which is open to the public free of charge, will provide an opportunity for parents and students to obtain information from approximately 80 postsecondary institutions. Representatives

from Wisconsin and out-of-state colleges and universities, vocational schools, trade schools and the military will be present to talk about the many educational opportunities available. No formal sessions will be held; rather, the students and parents will be free to move from display table to display table around the gym, spending as much time as they wish with the individual representatives. According to UWBC/WITC event co-

ordinators Kevin Falkenberg and Christy Roshell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be the single best opportunity for students and parents to pick up literature and information from the many fair participants at one central location.â&#x20AC;? Modeled after the successful national college fairs that are held annually in many metropolitan areas, this program replaces many of the college nights that were formerly held at local high schools.

Siren Dragon mascot unveiled at homecoming Harriet Rice | Special to the Leader SIREN - Siren Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homecoming festivities took on an extra â&#x20AC;&#x153;wowâ&#x20AC;? factor as a huge school art project was unveiled: the giant Siren Dragon mascot. Earlier this year in May, the project got started under the direction of art teacher Dawn Schultz. Minneapolis-based theater artist Chris Lutter, the same guy who designed and help build the Jordan Buck, came to the school for a four-day residency. The challenge was to build and animate a 21-foot-long, 9-foot-high dragon. A team of students ranging from seventh through 12th grades met the challenge, which culminated in a spectacular

debut at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homecoming pep fest on Friday, Sept. 25, to the delight of the screaming students and amazed staff crowding the gym bleachers. Schultz admitted to being emotional as the dragon entered the gym. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was exhausting and exciting.

By press time, there were more than 5,000 views. Plans are to use the dragon mascot at home sports and other special school and community events. Students who committed to working on the dragon and animating it received community service credits required for graduation.

Walk raises more than $6,000 for humane society AMERY - It was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top-10â&#x20AC;? weather day for the 2015 Walk for the Animals fundraiser held Saturday, Sept. 26. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a cloud in the sky, and sunny smiles were all around. Seventy-six walkers joined Arnell on the Stower Seven Lakes State Trail and helped raise more than $6,000 for Arnell Memorial Humane Society. Old friends and new adopted from Arnell, alumni and strident supporters enjoyed the chance to get together with their dogs, soak up the sunshine and have some fun. A meet and greet of whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who begins at registration. The dogs use this time to mingle with their peers, while the humans deal with paperwork. They come in ones and twos or a small pack. The dogs were, as always, remarkably well-behaved, as were their owners. The happy-to-meet-you chaos sets out on the limestone trail to enjoy the walk together. It is a treat to see everyone enjoying their dogs and the stories they share. Nine-year-old Emmett, a Norwegian elkhound adopted from Arnell this spring, came from Bloomington, Minn. Amos, a Pomeranian mix adopted the previous day, came with his new family. A Christmas puppy or two were on hand, as was an American Eskimo terrier from a rescue Arnell helped with in Frederic 10 years ago. Graduates from Arnell puppy classes and obedience classes attended with impeccable manners. '4&24)&7"-,12*:&3'024)&401@6&1-&%(*/(7"-,ers were awarded. Those so inclined participated in the canine contests. The youngest pet was a 7-month-old Colorado bulldog named Sarge Taylor; the oldest was 11-year-old Cosmo Rickard, a vizsla. Golden retriever Luke Zemke won the Simon Says competition and AMHS alumni Roxy Conrad, a Pekingese, won best trick. Another alumni, Missy Carlson, retriever mix, ran the obstacle course in one minute and 11 seconds. She crawled through a barrel, jumped through a hoop, ran the poles, mastered the seesaw and aced the jump. The largest pet was Piper Boetcher, a goldendoodle, and the smallest pet was Penny Mailliard, the puggle who also dressed as a hamburger to win the costume contest. Gratitude is extended to all of the sponsors and prize providers who help make the Arnell Walk for the Animals a celebration. The dogs and cats from and at the shelter thank them also. - from Arnell Memorial Humane Society.

Beverly Ann â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bevâ&#x20AC;? Johnson, 76, formerly of Webster, Wis., passed away Thursday evening, Sept. 24, 2015, at Pine Ridge Gardens Memory Care in Hudson, Wis. Bev was born in Grantsburg, Wis., on Sept. 21, 1939, daughter of the late Forrest Frank â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuffyâ&#x20AC;? and Mavis Helen (Schoonover) Newcomb. Bev grew up in the Town of Oakland, attending the Oakland School through eighth grade, and was a 1957 graduate of Webster High School. She then attended Wisconsin State College in Superior, Wis., enrolled in the two-year course in rural education, (2"%5"4*/(*/ &2@2344&"$)*/(103*4*0/7"3"44)& one-room Lone Pine School. On April 1, 1961, Bev was united in marriage to her one and only love, James K. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimâ&#x20AC;? Johnson, at Grace Evangelical United Brethren Church in Webster. Bev and Jim made their home in the village of Webster where they raised their two girls, and taught by example the importance of faith, family and friends, and the value of a strong work ethic. Bev was employed by the Siren School District from 1962 to 1970. During these years, she was a part-time student at Wisconsin State University in Superior. She graduated in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education. From 1970 until her retirement in 1998, Bev was employed by the School District of Webster; she taught elementary school students in Webster and Danbury. Every year, Bev read to her students the 1961 childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where the Red Fern Grows,â&#x20AC;? a heartwarming and adventurous tale about a young boy and his quest for his own redbone hound hunting dogs. Bev taught perhaps her most meaningful lessons to those who loved and cared for her the last few years of her life while she endured the journey of dementia. Those were the lessons of patience, acceptance and understanding. Bev was an active member of the Grace United Methodist Church in Webster and the United Methodist Women. For many years she organized the cookie walks and was instrumental in The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fund, a community ministry which provided clothing and school supplies to children in need.
