Luck students start to tap

Greg Marsten | Staff writer LUCK - An innovative way to involve students in the maple syrup process started Wednesday, March 19, on Park Avenue in Luck, where a number of Luck High School and Middle School students took part in a program of learning maple syrup tapping, with instruction by John Morley of Morleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maple Syrup. The taps were set up on village of Luck maple trees on the north side of Park Avenue and will go for as long as the taps continue to run, usually about three weeks, with collection by Morley. After collection, the raw sap is collected daily and taken to Morleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sugar bush where they cook off the excess water in a stainless steel evaporator that is fueled by wood. According to Morley, to make the sap into pure maple syrup nothing is added, only the water is evaporated from it. In fact, so much is evaporated, it takes 30 to 50 gallons of maple sap to produce just 1 gallon of pure maple syrup. When the syrup is at just the right density, it is drawn RIIIURPWKHHYDSRUDWRUĂ&#x20AC;OWHUHGDQGSRXUHGLQWRDERWtling tank where it is heated to 190 degrees Fahrenheit and put into containers. Morley will be offering the school district the opportunity to either use the syrup at breakfast fundraisers or possibly label it for a later sale, possibly to support expanding the program. 7KH HIIRUW WR LQYROYH WKH VFKRRO GLVWULFW Ă&#x20AC;UVW VWDUWHG from an idea Morley had several months ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was going over ideas to promote the industry, working with the schools, and then I saw the trees on Park

Morley said there are about 30 maple trees on Park Avenue that are mature enough for tapping, and told the village board he would split the proceeds of the tapping, which he guessed would mean about $140 to the school to start, enough to buy their own tapping materials and selfsupport the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this catches on, other producers can get involved,â&#x20AC;? Morley added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to promote (maple tapping) with the kids, the village of Luck,

He said they would require about three hours of training to learn tapping, and that it would not damage the trees, if done right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I consider this a trial year,â&#x20AC;? Morley told the village board. The effort has already drawn praise from the village board and within the school district, as several school administrators, staff and kitchen employees look forward to the maple project continuing to grow.

Anna couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t determine if her phone transmitted anything, and I checked our computer for any instant messages, Skype transmissions or any phone connections, and I found none. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like we heard an unintended phone call as if someone had inadvertently pushed a button on their phone and called someone on speed dial. It was simply a little girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice yelling â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momma.â&#x20AC;? Puzzled by this, we tried to consider the possibilities. I discussed this with a professional IT person who works on such equipment. He could not imagine how this could have occurred without any clear evidence of a connection, and even if there was an inadvertent transmission there should have been more than a single word, likely we would have heard background noise as well. So what really happened? I want to believe somehow her phone transmitted the conversation to our computer in the next room, and we only heard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mommaâ&#x20AC;? even though that sounds somewhat unlikely. If that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prove to be the case, then it must have been the power of the banana phone; a direct hot line to Grandma and Grandpaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. I am really glad my wife heard the voice as well, now I am not afraid to tell her about the voices in the attic and the little green guy living in the garage.

Of course, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to thank the arborists who come from all over Ă&#x20AC;YHVWDWHVDWWKHODVWFXWWLQJ 7KRVH who donate wood, process it, deliver it and get it to the people who need it are the heart of Heat a Home. Thank you to all involved cannot be enough. Another thank-you must go out to all of those who have donated to Interfaith. Without the monitory donations, we could not do what we do. A special thank-you to the Webb Lake Community Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club for the check they presented us recently. Personal donations and those given by organizations, churches and clubs mean so much to the people we help. We were able to secure a few grants which are also a great help. We have very few administrative costs, so the donations we get go to the

people in need in one way or another. Of course, Heat a Home and Christmas for Kids are our two biggest projects, along with helping the elderly and homebound. Often there are not enough of us to carry out all of the requests. Our volunteer base has dwindled, and we need people to step up and help out. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require a lot of time, but it means so much to so many. We have some wonderful fundraising ideas, and one of those is our 50/50 UDIĂ HWKDWZDVVRVXFFHVVIXOODVW\HDU I will write more about that and let everyone know where to buy tickets. Last year a check for over $1,200 was awarded, and we are starting much earlier this year, and hope to make the winning check much larger. I will update everyone on what fundraisers are coming up, when and where. I must add, every donation is tax deductible. I mention that because it is tax time, and I want to remind everyone that Interfaith donations can be claimed. Just a note, Denny and I had to go to see one of his doctors in Eau Claire yesterday. Not only did we see one, but three medical people and also . . . green grass! OK, so not so green, but getting there. There is hope for us. The snow could actually go away and we could

see the trees begin to bud. When I was a little girl my grandmother used to tell me that budding trees were lacing.

I do get a little tired of people sending emails and pictures of wonderful warm places with palm trees and sandy beaches. Ha, they missed all of the fun of shoveling the snow, plowing and freezing weather. OK, who am I kidding, it has been a horrible winter. I am afraid to wash my van because I think the salt and yucky stuff from the roads have rusted it, and the dirt from slushy snow is holding the fenders on.

Report was born in 1975 and became the Ă&#x20AC;UVWUHDO´QDWLRQDOÂľIDUPSURJUDPDQG is still strong. Technology gave us DTN out of Omaha. It was a wireless program you could sign up for and receive news about the weather, markets and some commentary. Cable and satellite (Dish and Direct) began in a big way in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s. They offered channels that appealed to a VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDXGLHQFH5)'79QHWZRUNZDV devised to offer exclusive programming for ag and rural lifestyles. Its success and growing availability is due to 24KRXUSURJUDPPLQJWKDWLVVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\

directed to the community of listeners who are interested in collecting tractors, training horses, home cookinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, BBQ, church, raising cattle, the FFA and old country music. Unlike many cable/satellite network programs that push the envelope with coarseness, crudeness, violence, nudity and profanity, the rural media network actually screens every episode of every program to ensure that it represents family values. It is apolitical, though like the U.S. Farm Report, there are programs that examine and comment on government issues that affect agriculture. RFD-TV and rural TV are growing steadily as urban people move to the countryside, adopt a rural lifestyle and want to raise livestock, a garden or buy a tractor. Fifteen to 20 years ago when cable and satellite companies began to take

over the airways, I admit I had a hard time imagining the explosion in ag media that was to come, much less television, that has occurred. After all, the census keeps saying that less than 2 percent of the U.S. population is active in production agriculture! An increasing number of consumers want to know where their food comes from. RFD-TV and U.S. Farm Report are places they can go to meet the people who feed them. It has changed agricultural marketing. Advertisers can now UHDFKDVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWQXPEHURIDJEX\HUV on a national basis. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for everybody. But the most useful and satisfying result of vibrant ag media expansion is that it keeps the ag community in touch with each other. And that is an accomplishment in itself. baxterblack.com

The ag media explosion How does it strike you that the more concentrated agriculture becomes, the more rural/ag media is available? Regional farm-, ranch- and equine-oriented publications are still a very strong part of our print media. Many of them have been around for over 50 years. Local radio ag programming came along and was able to give farmers a daily dose of the market and information news. Granted, with the coming of civilization most metropolitan radio stations pretty much ignore ag-related subjects, but in rural world ag broadcasters still have a place. The latest addition to radio ag programming on a national basis is SiriusXM Ch. 80, RFD rural radio. Ag programming on television has always been regional. The U.S. Farm

This evening is designed for parents only, so they may have a better understanding of the kindergarten program and details of their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day at school. If your child is currently enrolled in the 4-K Program in Balsam Lake, your child will bring home a registration packet to be completed by you and returned on April 23. If your child does not go to the 4-K Program, then a packet may be picked up at the Luck Elementary School Office anytime between the hours of 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Those children that are not enrolled in 4-K will also need to bring their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth certificate and immunization records. A school physical will be required to attend kindergarten. According to state law, (chapter 429, section 118.14), a child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, in order to go to kindergarten in the fall.

Habitat homeowner to â&#x20AC;&#x153;give backâ&#x20AC;? for a year Jackie Thorwick | Special to the Leader CENTURIA - A Habitat for Humanity homeowner now living in a Habitat home in Centuria has been hired as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer. She will volunteer through the VISTA program with Habitat for a year starting next month. Denise Van Vleet, along with her family and other volunteers, built their home through the Habitat program in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so excited to have Denise on board,â&#x20AC;? said Eric Kube, executive director of Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Denise knows the program from the inside, she knows what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to need a home and she is so passionate about Habitat. If you want to get pumped up about +DELWDWMXVWWDONWRKHUIRUĂ&#x20AC;YHPLQXWHVÂľ :5+)+LVDQRQSURĂ&#x20AC;WWKDWEXLOGVKRPHV together with families who need them and volunteers from the community. Funds are raised to purchase materials. When the home is complete, the family buys the home through a zero-interest mortgage. Those funds go back into the program and help build homes for more families. Van Vleet will be responsible for outreach

to potential Habitat homeowners. Van Vleet says people often think Habitat gives homes for free to their families, and she is very eager to set the record straight about that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We helped build the home and now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying for it, just like any other family,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like they say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a handout, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hand up.â&#x20AC;? When asked why she wanted to volunteer for a year for Habitat, Van Vleet had no shortage of things to say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to help people. I want them to know that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stuck, that not every road has a roadblock. I want to give them hope for the future, to let them know there are people who care, they are not alone and that they are worth it. (I want them) to realize you just have to put your heart into the equation and trust it will work out. I want people to know that they can enjoy life; to know that your house can be your home, a place where you can feel secure and enjoy family and friends â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and not a worry to add to your list.â&#x20AC;?

Cora Mathilde (Emerson) Hacker Cora Mathilde Hacker, living her last evening in the family home, left this life on her own terms on March 6, 2014. She was born July 31, 1930, to Wesley and Doris (Lind) Emerson in the Town of Sterling. Cora married Richard Hacker on Oct. 9, 1948. To that union, four children were born and raised on the family homestead. Mom worked at home to raise us until we all went to school, cooking, cleaning, canning, raising cucumbers in summer for the Stokely cannery, wrapping bobbins for the Duncan Yo-Yo factory, anything to help raise the family. She then took a full-time job at the Alcan Manufacturing sewing factory until retirement. Cora was awesome at throwing feasts on the table, in what seemed a matter of minutes, for anyone that stopped by. The fragrance that could come out of that kitchen was amazing, with homemade breads, cookies, foods of all kinds. No one should ever leave her table hungry. She was famous for cookies of all kinds, at the ready, for anyone who stopped by ... the belly full, bags full, or pails full. She enjoyed sending them home with everyone. Through the years, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a grandchild she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help to raise, and care for. She never could say â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to a chance to help out and snuggle. Mom made blankets by the dozens, coats for all of us - big kids to the little ones.
