A hiring survey predicts job growth to be slower than the kind foreseen three or 12 months ago. The forecast from the Milwaukee-based Manpower Group said that 22 percent of Wisconsin employers expect to add jobs the rest of this year, while 7 percent predict layoffs. Manpower spokesman Chris Layden said that net employment outlook of 15 percent is positive news. “But that is 10 percentage points lower than the quarter we’re coming out of, the third quarter of 2015, and also lower than one year ago,â€? Layden said. Layden said all industry sectors in Wisconsin should show job gains. The Milwaukee area has the best regional outlook in the state, with slower growth expected in Madison.

Polk County zoning ordinance goes to county board

Newest draft includes shoreland changes

Gregg Westigard | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The proposed Polk County zoning ordinance will go to the Polk County Board for adoption on Tuesday, Sept. 15. The latest version, dated Sept. 2, 2015, was approved by the conservation committee at its meeting Wednesday, Sept. 2. It includes a number of revisions to the shoreland protection sections to bring the ordinance into compliance with the legislative changes included in the Wisconsin Budget Bill, Act 55. Those changes were proposed by Rep. Adam Jarchow.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feed the bears, Two bears to be killed

If approved by the county board, the ordinance will be sent to the 24 town governments for review, with each town having a year to decide whether to accept county zoning. The ordinance will go into effect one year after county board approval. The action next week is the latest step in a comprehensive revision of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land use policies that started in March 2010. That revision included combining two present ordinances on zoning and shoreland protection into one comprehensive document with a complete review of all the provisions.

The 74-page ordinance can be found on the Polk County website under Zoning Ordinance Rewrite link at the bottom of the Quick Links column. That site also includes a history of the rewrite, links to Act 55 language, the DNR Natural Resources rule 115, background on zoning issues and links to the present ordinances. The committee moved the proposed ordinance to the September county board meeting to be in compliance with a stipulation in NR 115.06 that requires counties to amend their ordinances within two years of Oct. 1, 2014. Since the towns have a year to review the ordinance, the September 2015 board meeting is the last one

Hoffman said that because of that SURYHGWKHWDUJHWHGNLOOLQJRIWZRVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F determination, the DNR will cover the sow bears along with the capture and re- costs of the action.

Village President Glenn Rolloff said the village priority will be to reduce bear interaction, starting with an enforcement of the bear-feeding ban. He said that if you are providing food that bears can access, you are in violation of state regulations. Rolloff said the council will look at how to revise the ordinances to cover issues such as leaving birdfeeders out at night and putting garbage out for collection the night before the pickup. He added that will be a good debate. Aversion conditioning, a nonlethal bear-management tool, involves training people to use negative conditioning techniques that discourage bears from living close to humans. The message to the bears

While the proposed zoning ordinance will not be in effect until 2016, the new shoreland regulations linking that zoning to NR 115 is in effect now. County planner Tim Anderson said it is not clear whether the county needs to revise its present Shoreland Protection Zoning Ordinance, effective April 1, 2010, to bring its wording into compliance for the coming year. A note on the website link to the ordinance states that certain provisions may no longer be applicable.

is delivered by tools such as rubber bullets, pyrotechnics and pepper spray. Rolloff said that studies show the aversion process has been an effective management tool since the early 1970s. Relocation will continue to be the last step to reduce the bear population living within the populated areas of the village. Bears have been trapped and moved in the past, but Hoffman said that at least one of the two selected bears has been trapped and relocated in the past and both are resisting the present bear traps.

Since state-imposed revenue limits mean that the school cannot increase its budget, the additional aid means that the portion of the budget funded by the tax levy will decrease. At the same time, a projected 4-percent increase in property value means that the lower tax levy will be distributed over a larger tax base, bringing the taxing mill rate down even more. Although no estimate of the total school tax levy was presented, Robinson said that the tax levy rate should decrease by just over $1 for every $1,000 in equalized value. Even if voters approve the $17.5 million referendum this November (see separate story), the mill rate should still decrease about 50 cents for every $1,000 in equalized value. Because the school cannot take in more revenue than last year, an in fact has a revenue limit that is almost 7 percent less than last year, the school board and ad-

ministration developed a budget reduction plan earlier this year to cover rising program, staff, operations and insurance costs. This budget reduction plan included contracting for transportation services with Kobussen Buses, making reductions in teaching staff and aides, and hiring lower-paid staff to replace retiring veteran staff.

Polk County EDC board tours Schaffer Manufacturing and Great Northern Innovation MILLTOWN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; During their August board meeting, members of the Polk County Economic Development Corporation met with leaders from Schaffer Manufacturing, a custom metal fabricator, and Great Northern Innovation, which manufactures vibrating screens and wear media for the mining industry. Schaffer Manufacturing specializes in heavy fabrication, sheet metal fabrication, engineering and inventory management, and has 86 full-time employees. Great Northern Innovation is in the process of leasing a new 22,000-square-foot building and is expected to create up to 35 jobs. During the PCEDC board visit, Steve Schaffer, vice president of Schaffer Manufacturing, discussed the steady growth of the company which began in a 1,500-square-foot building in Luck in 1992. Today, the company occupies more than 80,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and warehouse space and has plans continued growth in the coming years. Gabe Feuerhelm,

president of Great Northern Innovation, also discussed his companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s products and its desire to continue to grow within the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are two great examples of innovative businesses that are growing the economic base right here in Polk County,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Healy, executive director, PCEDC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These site visits allow our board of directors

Big game hunters to begin registering kills electronically Rich Kremer | WPR News STATEWIDE - Starting this week, deer and bear hunters in Wisconsin will need to register their kills electronically instead of hauling carcasses to a physical registration location.

New school year brings excitement

with others. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the real world that awaits them. We want our kids to be creative, to show appropriate leadership skills, and to develop the behaviors of perseverance, responsibility and adaptability so they are ready for the inevitable struggles in life. Our schools and teachers need family and community support to deliver the rigorous, rich and wellrounded education our kids deserve. Throughout the spring and summer, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on strategies that will support educators as they build relationships that strengthen results for our students. Look for more information on the work of my Parent Advisory Council in September. During this school year, a number of schools are piloting academic and career planning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a change in the way schools do things, but the process is a great opportunity for our young people to really think through with their parents and teachers what

they want to do going forward. The process honors all postsecondary routes, including military, apprenticeship, FHUWLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQWHFKQLFDOFROOHJH and university education. It also helps students and their families recognize that many people move in and out of different routes throughout their lives. While Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statewide assessments, used to measure how well students are learning, are changing, they will still have the goals of measuring student academic achievement and improving classroom instruction. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about. Moving kids forward, closing achievement gaps, and making sure the next generation is ready and willing to take charge. We can all make that happen by supporting our hardworking students, educators and school leaders. Our plan for every child to graduate ready for college and careers is called Agenda 2017. I just know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great year. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do it.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always excited by the start of a new school year. It provides fresh opportunities for our teachers and students to get going on new learning while they make new friends and renew social and extracurricular activities. Amidst the many challenges and changes for the 2015-16 school year, there will be one constant: a singular focus on preparing students to be college and career ready. But what does that mean, to be ready for college, ready for careers? Certainly, we expect all of our students to gain solid academic knowledge in the various subject areas. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more. Students also need to have the social and emotional competence to be able to apply their knowledge, think critically, and communicate and collaborate The next generation of agricultural education

They accept every companion animal from Polk County residents, they turn no one away. They are proud of this status. Unfortunately, they also kill almost half of the animals that come into their shelter.

he immigration debate swirling among Republican presidential candidates worries the dairy industry in Wisconsin. A substantial part of the hard labor on those farms, especially the large ones, is provided by Latino workers. Many of these workers lack papers and are here illegally, as the politicians are quick to say. These workers do the â&#x20AC;&#x153;grunt workâ&#x20AC;? that other Americans are slow to take. Republican front-runner Donald Trump has proposed that workers without proper immigration permits be sent back to their native countries.

Krueger will be the featured speaker at Websterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Larsen Family Library chili feed fundraiser Saturday evening, Oct. 3. Tickets are available at the library, Fresh Start Coffee Roasters and Gandy Dancer Books, all in Webster. While the Friends of the Library group was prepared to pay the author, Krueger made an unusual request in lieu of the honorarium: he asked the library to use that money to â&#x20AC;&#x153;purchase books and other publications that speak to Native issues, cultures, education and any other area that will advance an understanding of indigenous people.â&#x20AC;?

Then potential supporters would recognize a true attempt to help companion animals instead of an empty program that helps no one. Tanya Borg Centuria

*RYHUQPHQWLQDFWLRQULJKWKHUH Probably most of your readers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that a new dialysis treatment center has been opened right here in Siren. It has been in operation for over eight months, opening in January of this year. I am a relative newcomer to dialysis as I am only in my third year.

It has been estimated that one in every nine jobs in Wisconsin has some of sort of tie to the dairy industry. Much of Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk is converted to cheese and that leads easily to its large role in production of frozen pizzas. Clearly, Wisconsin has different agricultural economics than Iowa, where corn seems to be king. But Iowa also has large meat processing plants that require workers willing and able to do the required heavy lifting jobs. As September started, Trump held a substantial lead in polls measuring presidential politics in Iowa, which will EHWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVWDWHWRVHOHFWGHOHJDWHVWR the presidential nominating conventions next year. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is among the 17 announced candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination. He has bounced around the immigration is-

sues, taking three different positions in one week. Walker needs a good showing in Iowa to have a chance. But then, there is the dairy industry situation in Wisconsin. Dairy organizations have spoken out against Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immigration plans. Against that background, a late-summer poll by the Marquette University Law School showed Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support slipping among Wisconsin citizens. There is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;substantial falloff in his support,â&#x20AC;? said poll director Charles Franklin. The decline was noticeable in rural areas and urban areas across the western and central parts of the state. Some 56 percent of those polled outstate disapproved of Walker in the latest Marquette poll, according to Franklin.

The book is an account of the life of Cecelia Connor, whose Ojibwe name was Odaygawmequay. Author Lafayette Connor, who lived to be 102, was her grandson, and when you read the book, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see why he wanted to preserve her story. Her life spans the years from 1834 to 1892, a period of great change in our area. In her early years, her family lived the traditional Ojibwe life, moving with the seasons as they had for hundreds of years. By the end of the 19th century, this way of life had been totally disrupted by widespread logging and previously unknown diseases brought to the area by settlers, e.g., smallpox, diphtheria, chicken pox and measles. The history is fascinating and at times heartbreaking, and Ceciliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life is a story of remarkable courage as exHPSOLĂ&#x20AC;HGE\DMRXUQH\VKHXQGHUWRRN in August of 1864 when her husband, %HQMDPLQZDVFDOOHGXSWRĂ&#x20AC;JKWLQWKH Civil War. After deciding she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to stay without her husband at the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm in Polk County, she set out for her ancestral homeland at Fond du Lac, along the banks of the St. Louis River south of Duluth. She made her journey in a canoe she built herself, starting on the Apple River. From there, she paddled eastward to the St. Croix River, then headed upstream to the headwaters where she portaged overland to the Brule River. She followed the Brule, with its 418-foot drop in elevation, all the way to Lake Superior, then paddled the lake itself to the St. Louis Bay, presumably entering

it at what is now known as the Superior entry between Minnesota and Wisconsin Points. From there, she paddled upriver once more, following the St. Louis River to the Fond du Lac Reservation, a total distance of about 150 miles. This journey would have been remarkable as a solo trip, but Cecilia did it with her three children, one of whom was less than a year old. Benjamin returned home at the end of the war, and after retrieving his family in Fond du Lac, they resumed their life in Polk County. Eventually, they moved north to Burnett County where many of their descendants live today. Cecilia was known throughout her adult life as a healer and medicine woman, well-versed in tribal ways and wisdom, as well as a loving mother and wife. Her gravesite, along with her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, is at the Orange Cemetery, just east of Devils Lake. You can read more about Cecilia and her family, including the details of her incredible journey, in the book. Cecelia Connorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is just one of many remarkable tales of Indian life past and present in northwestern Wisconsin. Because of New York Times best-selling author William Kent Kruegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generosity, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the opportunity to learn much more of this fascinating history and the culture of the Anishinabeg, the name the Ojibwe people call themselves. And if you come out to hear Krueger in Webster on Oct. 3, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be checking out some of his titles as well if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already done so.

Group asks Polk County seat to become bee friendly Greg Marsten | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local beekeepers are raising alarms over serious issues with bee populations, and efforts to make the region more â&#x20AC;&#x153;bee friendlyâ&#x20AC;? are meant to reverse that trend, noted by Patrick McElhone of the Polk Burnett Beekeepers Association, who made a presentation before the Balsam Lake Village Board at their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 8. McElhone explained the reasons bees are dying in a presentation, citing socalled colony collapse disorder, which hit Polk County beekeepers in dramatic form in recent years, reportedly decimating approximately 85 percent of all county hives in one year alone. Pointing to international research on CCD connecting the use of so-called neonicotinoids in pesticides to what he called the â&#x20AC;&#x153;four Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? of what causes the beehive problems, poor nutrition, pesticides, parasites and pathogens. The poor nutrition issue relates to not enough variety or inconsistent foods, as well as relating to the monoculture of the American lawn, which is all one type of grass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawns are a food desert for bees,â&#x20AC;? McElhone said, adding that what many bees eat are mowed as weeds. But the pesticide issue is front and FHQWHU DQG KH FLWHG WKH VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F XVH RI neonics, which he said was pretty much unnecessary, as the primary cause for CCD. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pesticides are the focus,â&#x20AC;? McElhone said, noting several large U.S. cities, as well as several Western European countries that have banned the use of neonics or severely limited their uses. ´<RXFRXOGEHWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWFLW\LQ:LVFRQVLQ to do this,â&#x20AC;? McElhone said on his recommendations for Balsam Lake to become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bee-Friendly City.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may even save the city some money.â&#x20AC;?

McElhone said, citing how through various subcontracting and labeling inconsistencies and loopholes, consumers may not know what neonics or other potentially harmful chemicals may be in certain pesticides and other products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They add things not listed, making it a hotter poison.â&#x20AC;? State Rep. Adam Jarchow was in attendance at the Balsam Lake meeting, and McElhone has reportedly sent his inforPDWLRQWR-DUFKRZ¡V0DGLVRQRIĂ&#x20AC;FH According to McElhone, the neonics issue is a serious one, and it literally makes typical food sources for bees â&#x20AC;&#x153;into a poison,â&#x20AC;? and may contain many times a

lethal dose for bees. Even in lesser amounts, neonics can disrupt bee reproduction, navigation, feeding, foraging, memory and learning, turning them away from their young, which is otherwise unheard of in bees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bees will not leave their young, ever,â&#x20AC;? McElhone said, citing what happens when plants sprayed with neonics were introduced into a bee colony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet these bees left.â&#x20AC;? McElhone is making similar presentations to other Polk County government bodies, hoping for a more concerted effort in making more bee-friendly environment, and suggested a more systemic approach to things like pesticide applications, weed control, even mowing and the planting of certain plants, which he said could lead to savings to taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, we lost approximately 42 percent of all bee hives in Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? McElhone said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That could be devastat-

ing to agriculture across the state.â&#x20AC;? The 85-percent colony loss in Polk County is of major concern, and is what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;the canary in the coal mineâ&#x20AC;? of what could amount to major pollination issues and crop losses in the not-too-distant future. McElhone said the village could even SURPRWH LWVHOI DV :LVFRQVLQ¡V Ă&#x20AC;UVW EHH friendly city, if they follow a pretty simple approach to turn some public places into more bee-safe areas, as well as plant pesWLFLGHIUHH Ă RZHUV DQG SODQWV DQG OLPLW pesticide spraying on bee food. He also suggested they promote beefriendly policies and promote those policies through education, promotion and online.

,QRWKHUYLOODJHDFWLRQ â&#x20AC;˘ The board approved driveway permits for Joe Jerrick and Jeff Hollenback, after staff review. â&#x20AC;˘ Police Chief Tom Thompson outlined the village and county policy regarding who is responsible for incidents at county-owned buildings within the village limits.

Unity referendum information available on the Web Mary Stirrat | Staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Residents of the Unity School District have about two months until the upcoming $17,495,000 referendum vote, and District Administrator Brandon Robinson said at the Tuesday, Sept. 8, meeting of the school board that he wants voters to have as much information as possible in order to make an informed decision. That information will soon be available to residents in the form of a brochure, but right now much of it is on the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.unity.k12.wi.us. At the time of the board meeting it could be found under the district tab, but it will be soon placed right on the home page. Robinson reviewed the information that can be found on the website, including a letter that outlines the purpose of the Nov. 3 referendum and the ways in

which is different from the April referendum. Addressing the programming needs and the issues of â&#x20AC;&#x153;an aging 1958 facility and infrastructureâ&#x20AC;? is the main impetus behind the referendum. Mechanical and electrical systems will be renovated and upgraded throughout the entire building, including boiler repair and replacements, heating and ventilation upgrades, repair and replacement of the cooling tower, and electrical repairs and improvements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much of this facility, from a mechanical perspective, that will not be touched by this referendum,â&#x20AC;? said Robinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really focused on the mechanical issues and maintenance.â&#x20AC;? Security and safety will be improved through new school entrances, new bus entrances and drop-off areas, and new parent drop-off areas. Common spaces, rest rooms, hallways and classrooms will be remodeled and updated. Areas of new additions consist of a 12,000-squarefoot auditorium, a 12,000-squarefoot gymnasium and new high school science labs. Changes were made to the design since the April referendum, explained Robinson, resulting in a $2 million reduction in overall cost. However, he added, the time line for construction goes out 8QLW\V1RYUHIHUHQGXPSODQLQFOXGHVH[WHQVLYHXSJUDGHVWRWKHPH WRDQGLQĂ DFKDQLFDODQGHOHFWULFDOV\VWHPVDORQJZLWKVRPHUHQRYDWLRQVDQGQHZDGGL tion of construcWLRQV{3KRWRVE\0DU\6WLUUDW tion costs during

In summarizing the changes from the previous referendum, Robinson noted that the science classrooms were relocated to the northwest side of the building to utilize two existing walls. Both the auditorium and gym were reduced in size from 14,000 square feet to 12,000. The playground and the elementary RIĂ&#x20AC;FHZHUHOHIWLQWKHLUFXUUHQWORFDWLRQV rather than moved, and a dedicated bus drop-off was included on the south end of the elementary parking lot to use existing parking. The loading dock and delivery area was moved in order to utilize an existing grade and so that the HVAC chiller could stay where it is. Entrance areas are being remodeled to get people in and out in a safe and orderly manner, said Robinson. The relocation of the auditorium and gym to the west side of the building means that visitors will have easier access to events while at the same time allow a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reworkingâ&#x20AC;? of the interior spaces for better programming. 5HIHUHQGXP Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLQJ LQIRUPDWLRQ LV

This means that the project will add about $54 per year in taxes on property valued at $100,000. Even with an increase of 54 cents for every $1,000 in property value, taxes are expected to go down thanks to an increase in state aid (see separate story). A copy of the ballot and a listing of polling place is also on the website. A tax-impact calculator will soon be on the website so property owners can input the fair market value of their property DQGĂ&#x20AC;QGRXWWKHHVWLPDWHGDQQXDOWD[LQcrease.

Text-a-tip?

Text-a-tip was made possible this year thanks to a system upgrade to the DNR Violation Hotline that allows users to call or text the toll-free number, 800-TIP-

Kevin Barman, who coordinates the hotline, says phone calls remain an effective way to reach the 24-7 hotline, but texting provides cusWRPHUVWKHĂ H[LELOLW\WRUHOD\LQIRUPDWLRQ when a phone call is not possible.

Schaller says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a team effort between the citizens and the

department. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be everywhere, so we value the eyes and ears of citizens who care deeply about Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resources.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have trained dispatchers who can take your information and pass it on to the conservation wardens,â&#x20AC;? Barman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember, anyone who calls the hotline and provides info can remain anonymous.â&#x20AC;? There is also an online violation report, which also maintains anonymity, that can be found by searching the DNR website for keywords report a violation.

Fall wild turkey, grouse and woodcock seasons set to open MADISON - Prospects are good for fall wild turkey, ruffed grouse and woodcock hunting seasons, according to state wildOLIHRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVZKRVD\KXQWHUVVKRXOGORRN forward to another exciting year in the Ă&#x20AC;HOG

:LOGWXUNH\ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time of year to be out in the woods, and fall turkey hunting offers some enjoyable challenges compared to the spring season,â&#x20AC;? said Krista McGinley, assistant upland wildlife ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We anticipate good numbers for this fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hunt, especially given favorable weather conditions during the winter and the spring breeding and nesting seasons.â&#x20AC;? The fall turkey season runs from Sept. 12 to Nov. 19 statewide, with an extended fall season in turkey management zones 1-5 from Nov. 30 to Dec. 31. Overall, Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statewide wild turkey population remains strong. After 30 years of sustained population growth and expansion across the state, wild turkeys are now found statewide. Wild turkey numbers appear to be stabilizing at levels suitable to available habitat - they ZLOOOLNHO\HEEDQGĂ RZDURXQGWKRVHOHYels in response to weather, food availability and other natural factors.

Turkey hunters are reminded that they are subject to the blaze orange requirement for ground blinds erected on DNR lands during any gun deer season. Ground blinds on DNR lands left unattended during legal hunting hours must display the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and address or DNR customer ID number near the door opening. Ground blinds may not be left out overnight, and must be removed entirely from the property at the close of hunting hours each day. Turkey ground blind rules do not apply to ground blinds being used for hunting waterfowl, or blinds built using only natural vegetation found on DNR property. However, all waterfowl blinds on stateowned property and used for waterfowl hunting must permanently display the name of the owner in lettering 1 inch square or larger, including when a hunter is using the blind. As in recent years, the use of dogs to hunt wild turkey is allowed statewide.

5XIIHGJURXVH In Zone A, the ruffed grouse season opens Sept. 12 and runs through Jan. 31, 2016. In Zone B, the season will open Oct. 17 and close Dec. 8. Ruffed grouse drumming surveys have been used since 1964 to help monitor ruffed grouse population trends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we did see some continuing regional declines, our roadside survey index to track ruffed grouse populations is essentially unchanged from 2014,â&#x20AC;? said DNR wildlife surveys coordinator Brian Dhuey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ruffed grouse populations are known to rise and fall over a nine- to 11-year cycle, and the last peak in Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cycle occurred in 2011. Survey results suggest that we have reached the low point in the population cycle and we should start to see increases in the next few years as our grouse population starts to move toward the next peak.â&#x20AC;? Grouse hunters are reminded to register with the Harvest Information Program if they plan to pursue woodcock, mourning doves or other migratory game birds. Registration is free and is available through all license vendors, as well as online.

Duffy, commentator wife analyze Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign surge Glen Moberg | WPR News STATEWIDE - U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., said that he believes frustration with Republican leaders in Congress is fueling the popularity of presidential hopeful Donald Trump. Duffy said that many conservatives think more should be done to block President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive actions. Duffy, who represents northern Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sprawling 7th Congressional District, said Trump is leading in the polls because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voicing the frustration of conservatives who think the president has overstepped his bounds and Republican congressional leaders havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done enough to stop him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some people in the leadership positions that could be far more vocal on the abuses from this administration and they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when you have a candidate who steps up and is boldly speaking and saying things that the conservative wing had wished that their leaders would say, they get behind him.â&#x20AC;?

Stories from the NW Wisconsin community

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Two Grantsburg High School students - Audrey Lauer and Delia LaBatt - were chosen to travel to China to take part in the Ameson &KLQHVH(OLWH3URJUDPWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW&KLQDZLGHSURgram dedicated to providing a formative cross-cultural experience to top performing students from China and the United States. Following is a story by Lauer of her experiences on the trip.

Delia and I, along with 13 students from the Permanent Five countries, had an opportunity to interact with the 200 Chinese students participating in the program. Why, you might ask, is a program such as ACE this important?

Take Me to the River begins this weekend

Live music, art, comedy and more ST. CROIX VALLEY - Vibrant fall colors, a beautiful river and great music â&#x20AC;Ś sounds like the recipe for a perfect fall weekend in the St. Croix Valley. Whether you are looking for an intimate concert venue featuring well-known artists or a lively family-friendly outdoor music festival, it can be found during Take Me to the River, Sept. 12-27. Since beginning in 2010, Take Me to the River has been a celebration of arts in the St. Croix Valley. While the event has always included music and performing arts, this year music is becoming a more integral part of this â&#x20AC;&#x153;festival of festivalsâ&#x20AC;? with the addition of three new music events: St. Croix Festival Theatre concert series in St. Croix Falls, Barrels and Bluegrass at 45th Parallel Distillery in New Richmond and Prairie Burn Music Festival at YMCA Camp St. Croix in Hudson.

0XVLFKLJKOLJKWV St. Croix Festival Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic vaudeville venue will come alive with music and laughter during the three weekends of Take Me to the River. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled concert performances will include an intimate evening with blues musicians Koerner and Glover on Saturday, Sept. 12, an afternoon of musical theater hits by the Belting Babes of Broadway with Colleen Raye on Sept. 13, hilarious stand-up comedy with Mary Mack and Tim Harmston on Sept. 19 and a return performance by Billboard-charting songwriter and guitarist Michael Johnson on Sept. 26. In New Richmond, a local microdistillery, 45th Parallel, will hold its sixth-annual open house, Barrels and Bluegrass, on Saturday, Sept. 26, with musical performances by The Dang Olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Triâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ole, High Strung String Band and No Tent featuring Reina Del Cid. The free event will also feature limited release of their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wâ&#x20AC;? wheat whiskey and live art demonstrations by Jesse Brodd as well as tours of the distillery, tastings, local food vendors and artists. Farther down the river in Hudson, YMCA Camp St. Croix will be host to the inaugural Prairie Burn Music Festival. The family-friendly festival will feature two stages featuring local music by The Lucy Michelle Band, Zach Dyer, Ruben and more. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the opportunity to try out some camp activities like archery, the climbing wall, camp song sing-alongs and the giant swing, complete with views of the St. Croix River. (YHQPRUHOLYHPXVLF While Festival Theatre, Barrels and Bluegrass and Prairie Burn are all about music, many of the other Take Me to the River events also feature live music as part of their fall arts celebrations.

The Sonoita Creek trail dropped down a rocky hill on rustic stone steps under a canopy of trees at the east end of our campground.

I suggested and Irene quickly agreed. Two days later we again hiked the trail, this time reaching the creek without incident. I was elated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a perfect spot for an owl!â&#x20AC;? So that night, wearing a headlamp and following the GPS track on my phone, I slipped silently through the gate and headed for the creek, keeping my headlamp off for better night vision. Stepping lightly, I stole along the edge of a broad meadow bordering the east end of the lake. Cows lowed softly in the distance as I re-entered the forest near the creek. I silently headed off the trail, stopped at the creek and began broadcasting owl calls. Several cows bellowed at once, some distance to the west, and I heard movement much closer. With a rush of adrenaline I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did they recognize the call as a predator? Surely a cow would not be concerned about an owl!â&#x20AC;? Still, I paused in playing the owl calls and the cows soon became silent. After a bit, I repeated the calls and was instantly answered by a raucous bellowing. I stopped the calls, concurrent with the sounds of crashing vegetation and the pounding of hooves, as the marauding band of belligerent bovines galloped in my direction. In panic, I instinctively looked for a tree to climb but there was no time. The bellowing was deafening as they charged past along the path just

yards away. I froze in the dark but could not see them. Apparently they could not see me either. The stampede having passed me by, I glided quietly back to the trail. The vengeful moaning continued behind me as I reached the meadow. Halfway through the meadow I looked behind me and got a fright. A black beast was silently following me just 30 yards away.

More delightful are the tears of busy parents when the last little one is shuttled off to school, shepherded by an older sibling who would rather have leprosy than be seen in public watching after their own little brother or sister. Suddenly there is a brief but real sense of peace and quiet in the home. Gardening has a way of bringing tears to your eyes as well. Our garden produce bounty builds until the hapless gardener is overwhelmed. We plant and water and pamper the tender plants hoping for summer warmth and just the right amount of rain. We tend to our tomatoes with more care than sending a child off to school. Then it happens, WKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWULSHWRPDWRWKHQDQRWKHUDQG soon you are engulfed in a truckload of produce.

Currently I have one zucchini about as big as my leg and it is still growing. I will probably get tears in my eyes trying to lift it into the truck. Making salsa is another rite of passage for the end of summer. Heaps of tomatoes and hot peppers are fun to chop and eat on corn chips. I was slicing a hot pepper just yesterday, thinking of how good it was going to taste. I took a break from my slicing activity and absentmindedly rubbed my eye. Big mistake! My eye erupted in a volcano of tears as the searing, hot pain went straight into my brain. Blindness was not far behind. Frantic to wash the pepper juice out of my eye, I turned on the kitchen faucet and doused my face with cold water. Another big mistake!

Even though summer is fading quickly and fall signals the inevitability of winter, we need to grasp the joys of each season. To do anything less is a crying shame.

he upcoming Beaver Club banquet, set for Saturday, Oct. 10, at Forts Folle Avoineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great hall, is built around several components. These include food, of course. A huge feature, though, will be telling the story of the fur trade via stories, poetry, pageantry and music. As diners enter the candlelit decor of WKH%HDYHU&OXEWKDWQLJKWWKH\¡OOĂ&#x20AC;UVW hear the spritely tunes of folk musician Merilee Thorstad as she strums her mountain-style dulcimer, a lap-held stringed instrument known in many lands across the centuries. Lots of history resonates in the tunes sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be performing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interested in folk music, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be naturally drawn to history,â&#x20AC;? Merilee explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Folk tunes are musical history, really - songs passed down the generations, many containing historical references to events of the WLPHVLQZKLFKWKH\ZHUHĂ&#x20AC;UVWFUHDWHG It is fascinating to imagine what sorts of music were heard at both fur trading posts in the early 1800s and more formal gatherings like the Beaver Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;French tunes, of course were popular, but many Scottish, Irish and British tunes were in the mix, especially in the fur tradeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital city, Montreal, where the original Beaver Club dinners were held. Mixed in might be some strains of Native American music, as well.â&#x20AC;? In addition to Merileeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renderings, Beaver Club diners will also be treated to the sounds of Scottish bagpipes, Irish tin and Native American wooden Ă XWHVSOXVDXQLTXHPRXWKLQVWUXPHQW known as the jaw harp, some singing, and a surprise or two in the musical ensemble. The intent of all will be to, as Merilee proclaimed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have fun!â&#x20AC;? What adds to the fun is the expertise of musicians like Merilee. Describing her approach to the tunes, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dulcimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s origins can be traced to several stringed instruments found in Scandinavian and European countries,

Merilee comes by her passion for folk music via shows like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hootenannyâ&#x20AC;? and performers like Peter, Paul and Mary. As she explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Folk music just always appealed to me. Thanks to the LQĂ XHQFHRIDQROGHUEURWKHUZKRGXJ deeper than the commercial and popular music, I soon was a fan of musicians such as Doc Watson, the New Lost City Ramblers, and blues legend Mississippi John Hurt. When I was around 12 or so, I used my allowance money to buy a guitar out of the Sears catalog, but I never became very good at it. I also had a go at playing the folk harp, with its 29 strings that needed frequent tuning and retuning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recently, I felt a need to learn a new instrument, and thought of the Appalachian dulcimer, with its few strings to tune, and its melodious traditional sound. I bought one and was immediately hooked. Without opening the instruction book, I was playing many, PDQ\WXQHVZLWKLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWIHZKRXUV songs that perhaps had laid dormant

Spooner manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painting wins state competition Danielle Danford | Staff writer SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Under a bluebird sky, a solitary wild WRPWXUNH\ZDONVDORQJWKHHGJHRIDIDUPĂ&#x20AC;HOG,QWKH background a red barn is visible, behind it distant hills are dotted with golden trees. This scene could have occurred on a farm somewhere in Wisconsin but it came from the mind of Robert Andrea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You hope that when you do a piece that people will enjoy it, that you can strike a chord with them,â&#x20AC;? said Andrea, a resident of Spooner. It was announced, on Tuesday, Aug. 4, by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, that his painting of the tom turkey was selected to be the 2016 Wisconsin wild turkey stamp design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you win it ends up being on the stamp for the next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hunting license, which brings in quite a bit of money for the state for habitat and things like that,â&#x20AC;? said Andrea. He explained that stamp competitions are stiff. Paintings are judged not only on color and composition but on the anatomical correctness of the animal subjects. Meeting that criteria would be challenging enough but artists also strive to make their piece appealing to the judges, to stand out from the competition. The judges themselves are often experts in that particular subject, those in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turkey stamp competition included Bruce Urben, board of directors president for the Wisconsin Waterfowl Association; Doug Fendry, Pheasants Forever Regional wildlife biologist; and Paul Wait, an editor and publisher with Delta Waterfowl Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got lucky with my turkey this year because they like it,â&#x20AC;? said Andrea. After describing how he and his wife, Jill, drive country roads or sit in blinds to capture photographs of the wildlife subjects he uses in his paintings, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious his passion for the art has more to do with his winning than luck. Since retiring from the Spooner Police Department as the chief of police, Andrea has been able to devote the necessary time involved for his art. For Andrea part of creating his art is a spiritual experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My faith is real important to me. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation is just amazing and really without it we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything to paint or draw â&#x20AC;Ś so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very critical part of my work and every time I go out I am in awe of what he has created, all the colors, animals and birds,â&#x20AC;? he said. Andreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in art began around the age of 8 and has developed since. In high school he did mostly sports imagery and now wildlife art, but he has always enjoyed the outdoors. In his law enforcement career he utilized his artistic abilities as a sketch artist for wanted individu-

als. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of experiences between the military, police, and my artwork, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been interesting,â&#x20AC;? he said. Andrea joined the National Guard when he was still in high school, retiring after 20 years in 1998. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pursue art in college because he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he could make a living at it, and he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to teach so, until his retirement, his art was a part-time passion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am young enough to where even being retired I am able to really pursue my art, which is wonderful. I just really consider that a blessing,â&#x20AC;? said Andrea. One of the pieces is a pair of ducks that he plans on entering in the North Carolina duck stamp competition this year. Next year he plans to enter a piece in the federal duck stamp competition, the granddaddy of stamp competitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky if you get one out of 20 paintings that really come together,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby boomer population expected to grow Wisconsin has one of largest baby boomer populations in nation Parth Shah | WPR News MADISON - New data from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services shows the population of Wisconsinites over the age of 55 has grown nearly 15 percent since the last U.S. census, and experts say Wisconsin is on track to continue aging faster than most of the nation. Wisconsin is one of about a dozen states where there are more baby boomers than millennials while nationally, millennials outnumber baby boomers. David Egan-Robertson, a demographer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said he expects the trend to continue in Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over a 20- to 25-year range, the work-

ing-age population is projected to stay fairly leveled. But again, age 65 and over will come close to doubling if not more than that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Wisconsin has the 14th-largest baby boomer population in the country. Egan-Robertson added that Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large baby boomer population isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only thing that sets it apart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Comparing ourselves to other states, we have generally a lower population of different minority groups, like Asians, African-Americans and so forth,â&#x20AC;? he said. Egan-Robertson said that states with fewer minorities tend to have older populations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minority groups in this country tend to have a lower age distribution,â&#x20AC;? he said. According to the census, the U.S. will be a majority minority country by 2043. EganRobertson said that by that time, the population of Wisconsinites over the age of 60 will have doubled.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a tight-knit family, and though my marriage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in crisis, sometimes I just need to vent. Jim: Only if the sharing, venting and â&#x20AC;&#x153;supportâ&#x20AC;? they garner for you are likely to produce positive results in your marriage. But how do you determine this? 7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVWHSLVWRJDXJHWKHHPRWLRQDO stability and psychological health of your parents and siblings. Are they really the kind of people you can trust with your secret marital frustrations? Do they have the capacity to listen compassionately to what you have to say and would their only motive be to offer you good, solid, objective and disinterested advice? Every couple needs a strong support system -- a group of people they can turn to in times of trouble. Ideally, we all want family members to be part of that network. When it comes to your marital frustrations, however, family is often too emotionally involved, too biased, and too invested to maintain a helpful and objective point of view. Remember, God has designed your marriage to be an exclusive relationship. If you want to preserve its integrity and promote its health, you have to take measures to protect it

from outside meddling.

from evil, that I may not cause pain!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So God granted him what he requested.â&#x20AC;? (1 Chronicles 4:9) Jabezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother must have suffered a lot of pain when he was born, to give him a name that means â&#x20AC;&#x153;pain.â&#x20AC;? However, her son grew up to be an honorable man of God. As he walked with God in righteousness and justice, his relationship with the Lord became so strong that he could ask for blessing, protection and removal of the stigma of his name. The prayer of Jabez is an example of IDLWKDQGEROGQHVV:HFRXOGDOOEHQHĂ&#x20AC;W from praying it for ourselves each day, especially during the times we are in pain. When we feel closed in or even KRSHOHVVEHFDXVHRIĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOZRUU\

poor health or painful memories, we can ask God to remove the barriers so our territory of opportunities will broaden. When we are hurt by a cruel remark, we can ask the Lord to keep his hand on us. When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tempted to go back to an unhealthy habit, knowing weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll experience pain from it, we can ask him to keep us from evil. When we feel any kind of pain, we can ask with humility DQGXQVHOĂ&#x20AC;VKQHVVWKDWZHZRQ¡WFDXVH someone else to be hurt. Lord, thank you for inserting Jabezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspirational prayer into your word. By faith that is bold and humble, we ask you to exchange our pain with your blessings of mercy and grace. In Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name, amen. Mrs. Bair may be reached at sallybair@ gmail.com.

Getting students geared up for new school year Priscilla Bauer | Staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Grantsburg elementary and middle school principals and staff welcomed students and their families to open houses on Wednesday, Aug. 26 to get them geared up for the new school year. At the middle school the new fourth graders checked out their new school and their classrooms while returning students got reacquainted with their principal and teachers. A fun back-to-school carnival greeted students at the elementary school open house. The carnival was the culmination of a summer reading incentive. Elementary and Nelson Primary students earned tickets through the summer just by reading and then used them to play games and enjoy fun food at the carnival. Students checking out books from the public library, bookmobile and the Little Libraries were given tickets. Students could also earn a free book at the mini book fair by keeping track of their reading minutes.
