Hundreds join search for toddler Search efforts begin late Tuesday, go through the night by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer CENTURIA – Reports of a missing 2-year-old boy east of Centuria late on Tuesday, July 16, led to a unique volunteer army of searchers, but no child as of press time. Isaiah Theis The parents of Isaiah Theis, 2, reported that the boy disappeared at around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening,

after playing with his 5-year-old brother in the yard of the rural Theis home at 1554 180th St., in the Town of St. Croix Falls, east of Centuria. Last seen wearing a green shirt, blue shorts and white socks, the red-blond-haired child became the subject of attention across the area of wooded, bramble-thick woods as word spread quickly on social media and led to neighbors, friends and concerned loFDOVDUULYLQJZLWKĂ DVKOLJKWVWR 6HH0LVVLQJER\SDJH

Man on life support after bizarre incident

,QIXOOEORRP

Dwaine Douglas suffers apparent medical event that leads to an ATV fall by Greg Marsten Special to the Register FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 40-year-old Frederic-area man continues to rely on life support in a Twin Cities hospital as he attempts to recover from an incident that occurred on Thursday, July 4, where he suffered injuries after an apparent medical condition occurred while he was riding an all-terrain vehicle on a family outing in rural Washburn Douglas County. According to the Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, Dwaine Douglas, 40, Frederic, was riding his 2011 Bombardier ATV on the evening of July 4 at about 6 p.m. on Berry Road, about one-half mile north of Red Lake Road near Birchwood. Eyewitnesses and the police report indicate Douglas was riding with an adult female on the machine at between 30-40 mph, when he suddenly fell off the right side of the machine, out of the blue. His passenger also fell off and suffered minor injuries as the machine glided to a stop in the ditch. Douglas suffered head trauma from the fall, and Birchwood Am-

Unlike an in-lab sleep test, which is used to diagnose many sleep disturbances, HST is used to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea.

bulance responded to the scene and transported him to Lakeview Medical Center in Rice Lake. Birchwood Police and Fire also responded to the scene, along with the Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, which is conducting the investigation. He was treated initially at LMC, but was then airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul for further treatment. Douglas was initially listed as being in critical condition, and according to the police report, the family was given the option to discontinue life support, when surgeons conducted one more surgery the next day. While the Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department has been actively involved in the investigation, they have focused almost exclusively on alcohol, as the initial narrative report leaned heavily on beer consumption being at least somewhat involved. That has since been disputed by family and medical personnel. Multiple family members have vehemently denied that alcohol was the cause, and while stating that he had just a couple of beers in the six hours prior to the incident, they do not believe it to be even a contributing factor. Later medical opinions seem to support that line. One of Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; siblings, who was on the scene and riding near him, said his head injuries were not as extensive as the initial report suggested, and that while there was a lot of blood, they do not think the trauma was that severe, and said WKHUHZHUHGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\RWKHUPHGLFDO issues that caused the incident. In fact, his sister said Douglas

was talking with his girlfriend passenger shortly before he fell off, when he just stopped talking midsentence, then slumped over to WKHJURXQG)DPLO\KDVFRQĂ&#x20AC;UPHG that later CT scans indicate that he likely suffered some sort of medical condition at the time, likely several strokes or a brain aneurysm. Douglas moved to the Frederic area about a year and a half ago, coming up from the Clayton area. He grew up in southern Wisconsin, but has had many local connections through the years, as the family has owned a local sawmill for over two decades. He is a divorced father of four children between the ages of 23 and 9 years old. While Douglas remains on life support, family and friends continue to follow his condition day by day, and also hold out hope for his recovery. They have said he has made small indications at times that show he may be conscious and aware, but they are unDEOH WR FRQĂ&#x20AC;UP KLV FRQGLWLRQ 7KH family stresses that the ATV ride they were on was a planned family camping outing and part of their annual routine. 7KH VKHULII¡V RIĂ&#x20AC;FH FRQWLQXHV WR investigate the incident, but due to the differences in certain laws between states regarding medical liability, the investigator was advised that they may need to have either the Wisconsin State Patrol or Hudson Police Department physically attempt to obtain Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; medical records involving the incident. - compiled with information from the family of Dwaine Douglas and the Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department.

Votes postponed on future of Polk home care by Mary Stirrat Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In an unexpected move Tuesday night, July 16, the Polk County Board of Supervisors voted 13 to 8, with two supervisors absent, to postpone the vote on closing the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home-health-care program until next month. With about three dozen people in attendance, representing both sides of the issue, Supervisor Brian Masters initiated the discussion as the board was considering adoption of the meeting agenda. Saying he wanted more time to gather information on the home-care program, and that he felt the vote should not be taken with two supervisors missing, he asked that action on the resolution to eliminate the program wait until August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get all my ducks in a row before making a decision,â&#x20AC;? Masters said. Supervisor Herschel Brown agreed with Mastersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; thought that all supervisors should be present when taking a vote on such an important issue, so that all districts can be represented. Supervisor Warren Nelson countered Brown, saying it was a great idea to wait until everyone is able to vote, but there are no guarantees that all the supervisors will be present at the August meeting.

Besides, Nelson pointed out, the room was full of people waiting for a decision.

When Supervisor Harry Johansen asked about the new information Masters was looking at, Masters responded that all he could say at this time is that it was statistics about the program. Voting to postpone the vote until August were supervisors Brown, Patricia Schmidt, Harry Johansen, Tom Engel, Jim Edgell, Masters, Craig Moriak, *HRUJH 6WURHEHO 7RP 0DJQDĂ&#x20AC;FL .ULVtine Kremer-Hartung, Larry Jepsen, Kim Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell, and board Chair William Johnson IV. Opposed were Dean Johansen, Kathryn Kienholz, Marvin Caspersen, Jay Luke, Warren Nelson, Neil Johnson, Russell Arcand and Jared Cockroft. Absent were Gary Bergstrom and Rick Scoglio. During the public comment period fol'U$UQH/DJXVDPHPEHURIWKH3RON&RXQW\ lowing the vote to postpone action on the %RDUG RI +HDOWK XUJHG WKH FRXQW\ ERDUG WR program, eight individuals spoke against NHHSWKHKRPHKHDOWKFDUHSURJUDP eliminating the program and three spoke in favor.

Rock jump leads to two-day search by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer TAYLORS FALLS, Minn. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The body of a missing 20-year-old Taylors Falls man was recovered from the waters of the St. Croix River at just after noon, Tuesday, July 16, after he had gone missing from a cliff jumping incident the day prior. Alex William Vitalis lost his life after diving from a rock ledge on the Wisconsin side of the river on Monday and failing to come back up.

Arguments in favor of closing the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home-health-care program cited the cost (information included in the county board packet shows an average loss of $374,220 per year for the past 10 years), and having the county in competition with private business. The fact that the home-health-care program is not a mandated service is also an issue. A major concern of those opposed is that none of the four private home-health agencies operating in Polk County will be able or willing to take as clients those individuals who have no health-care coverage and are unable to pay. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program has a sliding fee scale, but also typically has a small number of â&#x20AC;&#x153;charityâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;no-reimbursementâ&#x20AC;? cases. If none of the four private agencies are able to serve this particular population, the concern continues, these individuals will most likely be unable to stay in their own home and will end up in a nursing home, and nursing home care comes at a much higher cost than home-health care. The resolution to dissolve the program, however, includes the statement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Therefore be it resolved that the Polk County Board of Supervisors directs the Polk County Administrator to phase out the Polk County home-care program assuring that no current client of this program be denied services as a result of this

At 11:30 p.m. Monday, the search was temporarily stopped due to darkness. It resumed early Tuesday morning, using

dive teams and rescue recovery boats from the multiple agencies. According to the Chisago County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, a member of the Stacy Lent Dive Team recovered Vitalisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body in 41 feet of water downstream of the Franconia Landing. By early Tuesday, Vitalisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Facebook SDJHZDVĂ RRGHGZLWKFRQFHUQVDERXWKLV disappearance. But a short time later, as word of his body being recovered spread, condolences and memories messages were common, as the popular local manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss left many of his friends and acquaintances deeply affected. Vitalis was working as a chef at the

change . . .â&#x20AC;? The resolution also calls for monthly reports from the administrator to the board, as well as the establishment of a method to track home-care placements to determine whether there is an unmet need for services. Several people who have used the county program, or have had family members as program clients, spoke about the high quality of care and the idea that people are more important than dollars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only the money,â&#x20AC;? said one woman from St. Croix Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we care for each other? Are we concerned about each other?â&#x20AC;? Dr. Arne Lagus said the board of health voted three to two to eliminate the program, with two members absent. The three county supervisors present at the meeting all voted in favor of closing, while the two citizen members voted to keep it open. He also noted that the number of nursing home beds is decreasing even though the population is aging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the population in Polk County continues to age,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need home care more.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home care is not going away if Polk County would happen to close,â&#x20AC;? assured Karen Littlefield, director of Good Samaritan Home Care, pointing that her agency and others exist that are ready and willing to take clients.

2WKHUEXVLQHVV â&#x20AC;˘ At the recommendation of corporation council, the board voted to postpone voting on a resolution to establish compensation for the new 15-member board of supervisors that will be elected in April.

The cause of Vitalisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death was unclear and will need to be determined, as whether he drowned or struck a rock was unclear. Authorities stress that jumping from the cliffs of the St. Croix River is illegal, although the practice continues at multiple locations. Funeral services had not been set at press time. - with information from the Chisago County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department

Shell Lake man dies from carbon monoxide poisoning Family members, sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy, EMS workers treated at local hospitals after feeling effects of poisonous gas SHELL LAKE - A portable gas generator being used without ventilation in the basement of a home is being blamed for the carbon monoxide death of a 32-yearold Shell Lake man. Joseph A. Parker was taken to Indianhead Medical Center early Tuesday morning, July 16, where he was pronounced dead. His wife and two daughters, who were also in the home, were also taken to IMC for carbon monoxide exposure and are â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing as well as can be expected,â&#x20AC;? according to a news release from the Wash-

burn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department. Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deputy Brendan Harrington was among those exposed to the carbon monoxide. He was taken to Spooner Health System for treatPHQWDQGVHYHUDO6KHOO/DNHĂ&#x20AC;UHĂ&#x20AC;JKWHUV and members of the North Ambulance crew were taken to IMC for exposure to carbon monoxide as well. All are doing well, however, some were back at the hospital later in the day Tuesday for further examination as they were experiencing some aftereffects of the exposure. At approximately 3 a.m., Washburn County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dispatchers received a 911 call, the caller stating her father had fallen down the stairs and was not breathing. As authorities responded to the home at 109 6th Ave., they requested assistance, believing carbon monoxide was present in the home.

A preliminary investigation shows that there was no electricity in the home and a portable gas generator set up in the basement had no proper ventilation to the outside and carbon monoxide accumulated throughout the home. A carbon monoxide reading at the top of the stairs leading to the basement was approximately 790 to 800 parts per million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One could assume that the basement was much higher, probably double the parts per million,â&#x20AC;? said a statement from Dryden. Exposures at 100 ppm or greater can be dangerous to human health, according to Wikipedia.com. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas, but, being colorless, odorless, tasteless and initially nonirritating, it is YHU\GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWIRUSHRSOHWRGHWHFW â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a terrible tragedy for the Parker fam ily,â&#x20AC;? said Dryden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, we can be thankful there was not further loss of life. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife and daughters could

Dryden said that North Ambulance FUHZPHPEHUV6KHOO/DNHĂ&#x20AC;UHĂ&#x20AC;JKWHUVDQG sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies, once they knew about the carbon monoxide in the home and understanding the known risk to them personally, placed themselves in danger to help those in need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even using techniques to minimize their risk some were still exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide,â&#x20AC;? Dryden said. ´:H DUH VR YHU\ WKDQNIXO IRU Ă&#x20AC;UVW UHsponders who place themselves in danger every day. Until a tragedy such as this, we tend to forget what we ask of them.

EXGJHW Frey agreed with the four-day week results when he gave his report. He said that the past winter was the worst in years, but not the worst in overtime costs. Frey commented there are 168 hours in a week and the snow can fall anytime, any day regardless of how hours are set. He said lots of snow means lots of cost. The 2014 budget will be very tight, Frey said. The county has put an additional $100,000 into the highway budget in both 2012 and 2013. That increase wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be available in 2014. But while money wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be transferred into the highway budget, Frey said funds wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be transferred out either. State and levy revenues are frozen while expenses rise.

Warndahl said that despite a record-events year, crew morale has held up and the staff was cooperative. But he said there are only enough overtime hours left in the budget for 2-1/2 storms events in the coming November and December. ATV use on county highways will not be supported by Warndahl. He said the mix of 35 mph (ATVs) and 65 mph (cars) is not responsible. Warndahl said he has seen too many accidents in his personal experience as an emergency responder to favor a policy change on road use. Johansen said the issue was raised at a Luck town meeting. 7KHKLJKZD\GHSDUWPHQWĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHG under budget, Kathy Bohn reported, and Warndahl said a decision on the highway department issue is a couple of years off.

2014 Polk County highway projects preview

Committee takes road tour

by Gregg Westigard Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three of the worst road segments in the 330-mile Polk County highway system are scheduled for construction projects in 2014 and another seven-mile stretch, CTH W north of Frederic, once the worst road, is in the Ă&#x20AC;QLVKLQJVWHSVRILPSURYHPHQW$QGWKH 2013 projects are under way. The highway committee toured some of the 2014 projects at the start of its Thursday, July 11, meeting. Possibly the worst road is a stretch of CTH O south of CTH W. The committee stood on the road looking at a sagging surface and places where all the paving is gone due to frost heaves. The 5.8 miles on the Bone Lake/McKinley border will have culvert, ditching and matching work next summer. In the same area, four miles of W east to CTH E will be paved with an overlay. And prep work will be done on CTH GG, the Milltown/Georgetown line These stretches have been low on the

All were last paved 25 years ago and have a road rating of 3 on a

scale of 1 to 10. All are low-usage routes. Big changes are under way on CTH W as it leaves Frederic and winds through West Sweden to the Burnett County line.

Funds were found to pave much of the road in recent years. A line of dangerous trees near the north end have been removed, allowing the stretch to be straightened. And the soil is being removed from one spot to build up the steep bank above a pond just south of the Lutheran church. All these safety enhancements will make the seven-mile route less dangerous, Warndahl said. This stretch of W, once the scene of several meetings with West Sweden Town Board members, was the only county highway with a 2 rating a few years ago. It is now has a 7 rating. Meanwhile, the 2013 construction projects are under way. CTH A from Hwy. 63 west to CC, a nine-mile stretch, is receiving an overlay. Besides the work on CTH W, the county is halfway done with chipseal work on CTH G between CTH I and Hwy. 48. And sometime this summer the box culvert on CTH I in Balsam Lake connecting the millpond to the lake will be replaced. The 32 miles of 2013 projects have an estimated construction cost of $1,739,000. That same amount is budgeted for 2014.

Administrator says county continues to move in the right direction income scale when compared with the state, but is substantially above the state in the percentage of households with incomes b e t w e e n $25,000 and $75,000. Mortgage foreclosures are slowing 'DQD )UH\ 3RON &RXQW\ down, with DGPLQLVWUDWRU z 3KRWR E\ one home in 0DU\6WLUUDW every 688 in foreclosure, compared with one home in 404 last June. The fiscal condition of the county â&#x20AC;&#x153;continues to improve,â&#x20AC;? said Frey, as fund balances improve and the decline in equalized property value seems to be coming to an end. Of note is the fact that Polk County is ranked ninth out of 72 counties in its reliance on property taxes for funding, with 53 percent of its revenue coming from that source. The report states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Polk County raises a whopping 75.8 percent of total revenues from (its) own sources â&#x20AC;&#x201D; property taxes, sales taxes, other fees and FKDUJHV Âł WKH Ă&#x20AC;IWK ODUJHVW VKDUH RI DQ\ county in the state.â&#x20AC;? The reliance on property taxes, according to Freyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, is the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy that high property value equals an ability to do without state or federal dollars. Even though working with less outside dollars, each of the major expenditure categories spent less than budgeted in 2012, with highway coming in at budget. Fund

balances increased nearly $400,000 in 2012, to $15,213,000. This puts the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unassigned fund at 29 percent of annual expenditures, which is above the 25 percent set by policy. $V D Ă&#x20AC;QDO SRLQW RI WKH FRXQW\¡V Ă&#x20AC;VFDO condition, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt service is currently at $27.2 million, including $4.2 million in interest. This year is the peak year for debt service, with $4.25 million in debt payment. All debt is scheduled to be repaid by 2021. Looking at management conditions, Frey noted that personnel costs are estimated at $29.4 million in 2013, which is about 51 percent of total expenses. The number of full-time equivalent staff is 430, down from 435 budgeted in 2012.

whole, the age of employees is increasing, and it is possible that as much as two-thirds of the workforce could retire within 10 years. Because of this, succession planning is a priority, said Frey. However, what Frey describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the FRXQW\¡VVRPHZKDW%\]DQWLQHMREFODVVLĂ&#x20AC;cation system,â&#x20AC;? has been an obstacle to recruitment and retention. Job descriptions are narrow, limiting advancement and the ability to move across departments. The process of developing more general job descriptions is under way. Reiterating that the county continues to improve in all three areas, Frey concludes his report on a very positive note. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Polk County,â&#x20AC;? he writes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is in a position many other local governments would HQY\DQLPSURYLQJHFRQRP\VROLGĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOUHVHUYHVDQGDIRXQGDWLRQRIJRRGĂ&#x20AC;Vcal practices, an outstanding workforce â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a great place to live.â&#x20AC;?

Burnett Dairy granted beer license by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer ALPHA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Customers coming to Burnett Dairyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardware store will soon be able to purchase beer. The Wood River Town Board voted unanimously to grant the cooperative a Class A beverage license at their July 10 meeting. Previous attempts by Burnett Dairy to obtain a license to sell beer had been denied by the board with the latest application considered at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wednesday, June 12, meeting. A lengthy discussion at that meeting, with most of those present strongly opposed to granting the license, led the board to table any vote until such time they received a legal opinion on the matter from a municipal lawyer in Eau Claire. The board received a letter from the dairy requesting the matter again be put on the July meeting agenda. The dairyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal counsel also sent a letter to the board indicating legal action could be taken against the board if it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act in a timely matter on license application. Town Chair Dawn Luke said as it happened to be the day of the meeting the legal opinion was received, the board would have to act on the license application. Luke said the opinion stated there was no legal reason not to grant the license. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, there was not a health, safety and welfare issue,â&#x20AC;? commented board member Dale Halverson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The GDLU\ KDG VXIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW SDUNLQJ DQG WKHUH are no disturbances on the property such DVĂ&#x20AC;JKWVÂľ

Luke said the fact the board had already granted two licenses for selling wine, one to Hennesseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vineyard at Smoland Inn and the other to the dairy cheese store, set a precedent with regard to not granting a beverage license in close proximity to a school or church. The boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote to grant the license came with some members expressing regret in doing so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew what the public opinion was so we regretted having to grant the license,â&#x20AC;? said Luke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a lot of emotion but no legal reason not to give the dairy the license. Before the vote, I even asked people in the audience if they could give us a legal reason.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was public opinion versus legality and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much of a choice,â&#x20AC;? commented Halverson after the vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew going into this they would eventually get the license,â&#x20AC;? said Roger Woods, owner of Backwoods Beer and Bait Shop in Falun, who had opposed granting the dairy a beer license on the grounds it would basically put him out of business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you going to do?â&#x20AC;? said Woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because my business is in the Town of Daniels and not in Wood River I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t claim giving the license would be a hardship to my business.â&#x20AC;? Luke said in the future the town could be writing an ordinance stating if anyone were caught selling beverages to people under the legal drinking age, their license would be revoked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will see what happens.â&#x20AC;? Note: Burnett Dairy was contacted for comment on receiving the license but did not respond.

Letters To Wisconsin legislators Thank you for passing important legislation protecting women and our most vulnerable human beings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unborn babies. Thank you for responding to the thousands of women and men who have contacted their elected representatives urging you to stand up to the false accusations of harassment and of being a male-dominated entity. Your courage is commendable in the face of the tremendous destruction of human life by abortion mills such as Planned Parenthood and others. We pray for you and for our fellow citizens who have lived their lives without experiencing how precious is the gift of

Viewpoints

life. What a hopeless world it is when any human life is deemed anything less than human life. It is ironic that something is called Planned Parenthood when its only purpose is to end parenthood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for pay. We look forward to the day when such organizations will realize the destruction they have wrought and will cease to bring harm to women and babies. Women and men of Wisconsin further ask you to enact legislation to stop our tax dollars from funding Planned Parenthood. Thank you for your courage and for bringing Wisconsin back to Life.

Bless them with wood ticks We moved from the Twin Cities in 1980 to a small, old house on Moline Road west of Webster. Then, at ages 86 and 89, we had a house built on Perch Avenue in 1999. My health was not the best, but Wes deteriorated until he had heart surgery in 2007. We loved living in the country but knew it was time to move to a town-size lot for a couple of old geezers. Last year, circumstances altered when we had our garbage cans stolen three times. Now, this summer we have had our water gauges stolen three times. Wes is 93 with a pacemaker, and in two months I will be 90.

Question: Who are these sickos having this fun. We no longer have a car, so we rely on others to take us to church, store, hardware, library, bank and the doctor. We have truly appreciated all who have helped us. Now! Detectives. Help us get this cleared up! May God bless these sick ones with many wood ticks for their fun. Sincerely, Norma Mauer Webster

Health care changes coming in October Much as it did one decade ago, Wisconsin readies for major change in health care by Shamane Mills Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - Starting in October, people without insurance or those who pay too great a percentage of their income for coverage have an option. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when enrollment begins for subsidized private health plans available in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big part of federal health reform thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being compared to the rollout of another huge health care change in this country: Medicare Part D, the federal SUHVFULSWLRQ GUXJ EHQHĂ&#x20AC;W VR PDQ\ VHniors use.

plementation than the ACA is now, according to a poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard School of Public Health. The government is learning lessons from that experience. Call centers have started and an instructional government website is up and running. Lisa Olson represents federally funded health centers in Wisconsin that serve low-income people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a consumer-friendly site that helps you prepare for filling in your information on that application for health insurance,â&#x20AC;? says Olson of the website. The Wisconsin Primary Health Care

Association is part of a broad coalition thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working to get people covered under the new federal law. Olson says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertain how many plans consumers will be able to choose from, although VKHVD\VLWZLOOGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\EHLQWKHGRXble digits. State Medicaid director Brett Davis has said that there will be an insurance plan in every Wisconsin county offered on the federally run marketplace. Some insurers are nervous that only older, sick people will sign up for insurance now required by law. Twenty-four-year-old Andrew Bethke of Madison plans to buy coverage. He GHĂ&#x20AC;HV WKH WKLQNLQJ WKDW ´\RXQJ LQYLQciblesâ&#x20AC;? will pay a $95 penalty next year instead of getting insurance. But he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to pay a lot, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, under a hundred per month.â&#x20AC;? For many, the complexity of buying insurance could be a large issue. Mary Michaud is with Access Wisconsin, a broad

coalition helping people understand the online marketplace. She says the group asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do we make the information less complex and demystify some of the terminology so that those kinds of obVWDFOHVDUHEURNHQGRZQĂ&#x20AC;UVW"Âľ Consumer concerns extend to cost and whether coverage on the marketplace will be too expensive. Former U.S. Rep. David Obey worries that subsidies will be too low. He says that was a compromise to keep down costs on the controversial legislation. But the longtime legislator sees the turbulence and confusion eventually ending. At a health forum in Wausau this summer he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cannot imagine this country without Social Security (or) Medicare. I would say the same thing is going to be true here in 20 or 30 years.â&#x20AC;? Obey says there are bound to be changes made to the Affordable Care Act, just as there were to Social Security and Medicare after they were passed.

by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer SIREN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Burnett County Tourism got a big boost from the Burnett County Snow Trails Association and the Turf and Tundra ATV Club, presenting checks in amounts of $2,000 and $500, respectively, to natural resources committee Chair Ed Peterson at the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thursday, July 11, meeting. The donations will be used to help fund a segment for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Discover Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;? episode on ATV riding. Burnett, along with Douglas, Barron and Washburn counties, will be included the segment of the popular television program. Burnett Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of the cost to be part of the program is $10,000, part of which will come out of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism department budget. Burnett County will be featured in a 4- to 5-minute segment in the program, tentatively set to air spring and fall 2014 and summer 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Burnett County Snow Trails Association and the Turf and Tundra ATV Club are wonderful partners in tourism,â&#x20AC;? commented Burnett County Extension educator Mike Kornmann, who oversees the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism efforts and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Discover Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;? program project. ´7KHLUĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDOFRQWULEXWLRQVWRGD\ZLOOKHOSXVSURmote Burnett County and grow local businesses,â&#x20AC;? added Kornmann. On hand for the presentation from the Burnett County Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs were Jon Schoepke, director; Sue Smedegard, secretary; and Jim Smedegard, representative. Danny Carlson and Rick Melin represented The Burnett County Snow Trails Association and Cheryl and Ron Gray presented the donation from the Turf and Tundra ATV Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel the entire community must partner with our governmental agencies to promote tourism throughout Burnett County. Snowmobilers and ATV riders bring a huge amount of tourist dollars into our area and we want to highlight the excellent trail system we have here, which is provided and maintained completely by club volunteers,â&#x20AC;? commented Sue Smedegard of the donations presented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope that by donating to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Discover Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;? project, more people from outside our own area will see the beauty and diversity of Burnett County and plan a trip here in the near future,â&#x20AC;? Smedegard added. ,QRWKHUFRPPLWWHHEXVLQHVV

The committee approved the 2013 power-disc trenching bid, on an estimated 130 acres and trenching and spraying on an estimated 44 acres, of $11,454 from Future Forest to prep sites for tree planting. The committee also approved the 2013 hand-release bid of $80 per acre for 142 already planted acres by Northwoods Forestry from Eleva. The forestry department budget and state aid funds will cover the projects. Forestry Administrator Jason Nichols reported Kenneth Pardun has been hired as a second part-time limited term employee to work with forestry and recreation 2IĂ&#x20AC;FHU5\DQ%\EHH Nichols said a ceremony to dedicate a new sign at the site of the Civilian Conservation Corps camp located approximately one mile south of Hwy. 77 on Lake Drive, Town of Swiss will be held on Thursday, Aug. 8, at 1 p.m. The public is invited to attend the ceremony, which will include a display of photos and historical information of the camp. Forrest Ceel donated the funds for the sign in honor of his father who worked at the camp. In his monthly forestry department report, Nichols told the committee there are currently 12 active timber sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Timber sales are doing OK. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not having a great year but we expected that,â&#x20AC;? remarked Nichols. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are at about one-fourth of what was brought in last year, but last year had a large number of extra sales due to the blowdown. We are currently sitting at approximately 50 percent of our estimated value for this year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a lot of nice sales in October,â&#x20AC;? added Nichols. Nichols said he received an email from the Dogtown Creek property owners, informing him they were willing to sell the 200-acre parcel at the appraised value of $163,800. The total project estimated is $166,300, which includes appraisal costs. Nichols said he hoped to obtain a stewardship grant of $83,150, approximately 50 percent of the cost, with the county taking out an interest-free loan for the remainder of the cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The interest-free loan is paid back through timber sale proceeds,â&#x20AC;? Nichols explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each quarter, the state bills us for 20 percent of any timber sales that closed out. We make that payment to the state until the loan is paid back.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valuable timber on the property,â&#x20AC;? Nichols

told the committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get our money back over time, not immediately. Much of the property is productive, growing acres of good-quality timber.â&#x20AC;? Committee member Larry Main asked how this pristine property could be protected once it becomes county land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it goes from being private to county land, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big difference,â&#x20AC;? commented Main. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking to protect it and keep it limited access. I think it should be thought of as restricted.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell people they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk on it,â&#x20AC;? said Nichols of the land bordered on three sides by county land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could restrict motorized use.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The usage of the land I see as changing might be in hunting,â&#x20AC;? said Nichols, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and there will be people who go back there on ATVs.â&#x20AC;? Committee member Gene Olson asked if construction of a parking lot was warranted. Nichols responded adequate parking already exists. The committee gave approval for Nichols to apply for a Sustainable Forestry Grant in the amount of $38,500. The money will be used for site preparation and planting in storm-damaged areas. An application for conservation aids, which would be used to help maintain boat landings and for other conservation projects such as tree planting, seeding, mowing, boat landings, docks, etc., was approved by the committee. Nichols also reported heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had no word with regard to the change in DNR ATV and snowmobile trails grant funding for maintenance of the trails for 2013-2014. Nichols reported at the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s June 13 meetLQJKHZDVLQIRUPHGE\WKH'15WKDWGXHWRGHĂ&#x20AC;FLWVLQ the snowmobile and ATV grant programs, they will be switching to a different funding process.

Nichols wanted the committee to be aware of the uncertainty with regard to funding as the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of ATV winter use on the Gandy Dancer Trail was contingent on funding. The matter will be put on the August meeting agenda for discussion.

by Mary Stirrat Leader staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201D;In what seems to be his typical way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; quiet and unassuming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Luck native Dennis Frandsen met with the Luck Village Board Wednesday night, July 10, WRSUHVHQWKLVSODQWRĂ&#x20AC;QDQFHDQGEXLOGDXQLWVHQLRU condominium in Luck. As the sole private investor in the project, Frandsen will build the condominiums and then sell them at fair market value. The single-story building will be located on the northwest corner of Butternut Avenue and 1st Street, on three lots currently owned by the Luck Housing Authority. By law, the housing authority must sell the land at its appraised value, and an appraisal is now under way so the lots can be sold to Frandsen. Frandsen, an entrepreneur and philanthropist, has provided generously for various projects in Luck including cart paths and other improvements at the golf course and the Centennial Gazebo at Triangle Park. He also made the building of a Habitat for Humanity home possible by purchasing and demolishing an existing dilapidated house. He told the village board that the Luck plan is modeled on a similar senior condominium development he built in Rush City, Minn. The 12 units will be side-byside, with garages located behind. Half the units will be one bedroom and half will be two bedrooms. He estimated that units will run about $65,000 for a one-bedroom unit, plus $5,000 for a garage. A two-bedroom unit will add $10,000 to the price. There will be about nine units that come with a garage and the rest will have parking spaces. Owners of the condominiums will also own the outside area of the property, paying a fee to cover property taxes, snow removal and lawn care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very successful,â&#x20AC;? Frandsen noted regarding the Rush City complex. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a group of people out there that want to own their own place.â&#x20AC;? Explaining his reason for putting up the funds to build the condominiums, Frandsen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made money all my life and sometimes I need to do something that GRHVQ¡WPDNHDSURĂ&#x20AC;WÂľ His intent, he said, is to limit through deed restrictions how much the units can be resold for. That way, Frand-

wich noted that the timing would be great for the project because the road will be torn up for the pending water-looping project. Bruce Hendricks, contractor for the project, added that curb and gutter would be part of the condominium project and would probably be comSOHWHGWRĂ&#x20AC;WWKHWLPHOLQHRI the road project. Demydowich led the board in thanking Frandsen for his generosity.

Dream catcher LucknativeAimie Jorgensonlivesout dreamofplaying tacklefootball by Marty Seeger Leader staff writer LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Luck native Aimie Jorgenson has always had a love for the game of football. She played pickup games with her four brothers during her youth and SOD\HG MXQLRU KLJK Ă DJ IRRWEDOO DW /XFN before it went full contact with pads and helmets. She was a talented athlete and competitor throughout high school, graduating in 2002, and remained active in sports, coaching junior high basketball and the high school softball team in Luck, yet, throughout all that time, she held onto her curiosity and love of football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just always curious, what it would be like to play football for real, full on, and just Aimie Jorgenson never got that opportunity,â&#x20AC;? Jorgenson said, until she saw an article published in the Leader last summer that featured a story on Amanda Byers of Grantsburg, who played for the Minnesota Vixen, a member of the Independent Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Football League that is in its 15th season. Jorgenson had no idea the Vixen, or any other type of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team, existed, but later last fall, she visited an open practice for people to check out the WHDPDQGLWZDVORYHDWĂ&#x20AC;UVWVLJKW â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved it.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very, very competitive, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I love about it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just playing a little football. They take it very serious.â&#x20AC;?

The 37th-annual world championship snowmobile watercross will be held July 19-21, Memory Lake, Grantsburg In addition to three days of IWA racing excitement, the event offers many other huge attractions. Vintage racing (open to anyone) starts the weekend on Friday. The Pit Crew Dash for Cash race on Saturday evening is a thrilling competition incorporating pit crew involvement.

Advancestoproclass by Kerri Harter Special to the Leader GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; David Fischer, Eagan, Minn., double crowned at the Grantsburg World Championship Watercross race last year and made it look easy. In the 800 GUDJVKHWRRNDOOĂ&#x20AC;UVWVRQ6XQGD\DQGLQ the mod drags he had a clean sweep of Ă&#x20AC;UVWVDOOZHHNHQGLQFOXGLQJDZLQDJDLQVW his dad, pro racer Jeff Fischer, in a Friday qualifying heat. Young Fischer not only raced three different sleds over the weekend, he also had the most water time of any racer, competing in two drag and two semipro oval classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One thing that is a bit of a challenge when switching sleds,â&#x20AC;? said Fischer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is that they all handle differently. Technique used to turn one sled is not necessarDavid Fischer ily going to work on another one because of the chassis and how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set up.â&#x20AC;? Then with his quick sense of humor, added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out there just trying to win the race, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes easy to forget what sled youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on!â&#x20AC;? Quite remarkably with all those heats, Fischer stayed dry the entire weekend, although he had a near sink in the semiSURVWRFNĂ&#x20AC;QDO&RPLQJLQWR*UDQWVEXUJ¡V big race, Fischer was an obvious favorite in this class, boasting a clean sweep of Ă&#x20AC;UVWVDOOVHDVRQ(DUO\LQWKHUDFHDIWHUKLV sled took on water from another racerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spray, Fischer voluntarily left the course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew the sled wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to keep going and that I needed to pull out before I sank.â&#x20AC;? With a sixth-place ending and an easygoing attitude, Fischer smiled and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little disappointing, but it happens.â&#x20AC;? In the semipro open, Fischer found himself in a like situation, sweeping the HQWLUH ZHHNHQG ZLWK Ă&#x20AC;UVWV /HDGLQJ WKH race until the second-to-last lap, Fischer took the EQ and lost the lead to Nick Gustafson who came underneath and eventually took the win. Fischer came in second. Fischer went on to take the titles in the 800 and mod drags at the two races following Grantsburg last year and ended the season as a triple crown winner in the year-end points championships: 800 drags, mod drags, and semipro stock ovals, and just missed taking the semipro open, settling for a second place. Hard to top that? Not for this young racer. Fischer then traveled to New Hampshire for the East/West Challenge and not only participated as a pro racer, he won the event. With pro racers from both the IWA and EWA, this race is unXVXDOO\GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWUHTXLULQJUDFHUVWRRYDO the opposite direction they are accustomed to.

While putting it all together has been challenging, Jorgenson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to want to change the way things are going anytime soon and hopes to continue to play as long as she can, and some members of the team have proven that it can be done. Jorgenson said the team has members that have been playing throughout the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15-year history including a 46-year-old, and another who is 40. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From day one, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been in awe of them, because they work very, very hard and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this for 15 years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just like, wow, how do they do this over and over again. It blows my mind.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to say, too, that Jorgenson has been in awe of a lot of things throughout her rookie season with the Vixen, and much of it stems from just being able to

have an opportunity to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just so surreal to be out on the Ă&#x20AC;HOGDQGDFWXDOO\EHDSOD\HUDQGQRWMXVW a player on the sidelines.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just nothing like it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty awesome.â&#x20AC;? Jorgenson also takes pride in being able to lead the team in prayer before each

game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my favorite times this season with the teammates is having the privilege to lead pregame prayer. We all get together in a sister circle, arms around each other, and I get to lead the team in a prayer time ... everyone really likes it. I feel itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important to honor and thank God for the privilege and opportunity to play the great sport of football.â&#x20AC;? The Minnesota Vixen football team is noted as the longest continuously operating womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tackle football team in the nation and, according to Jorgenson, there are about 75 other teams throughout the nation as well.

She does know the team is quick and has a good defensive line, which is also the Vixen strength, rated as the No. 1 defense in their league, comprised of teams such as the Madison Blaze, Rockford, Ill., Riveters, Iowa Crush and Wisconsin Warriors, to name a few. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To play full-tackle football has always been a dream of mine.

Traditional 40 title goes to Pellersels

by Terry Lehnertz and Greg Parent Special to the Leader ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nerves of steel were required of 2013 Traditional 40 champion Jeff Pellersels, as the journeyman sprinter narrowly held off a pair of seasoned veteran racers in a marathon battle during the second-annual event at St. Croix Valley Raceway, Friday, July 12.

With only a handful of locations to hang a stand, you can only do so much scouting, anyway, but keeping tabs on deer via trail camera, has become as traditional for some people as the nine-day gun deer season and it has for me, too. Trail cameras are an addicting little $EXFNRQWUDLOFDPHUDLQHDUO\-XO\ZLWKD hobby and require little effort other than Ă&#x20AC;QGLQJWKHPRQH\WRSXUFKDVHRQHDQG ORWRIJURZLQJWLPHOHIWEHIRUHWKHVHDVRQEH JLQVLQ6HSWHPEHUEXWQRWWKHRQHWKHDXWKRU learning how to use it effectively.

But as most hunters know, a trail camera photo doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guarantee youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll even see that deer with your own eyes. That was the case for me last summer as I watched the largest buck caught on a trail camera grow his velvet throughout the summer. I often dreamed of seeing him up close and personal with the naked eye during the hunting season and with so many trail-camera photos of the deer, it seemed inevitable. Someone in our area was going to get this buck. However, the last photo I had of the deer was near the end of August and, as usual, during the night when bigger bucks tend to be on the move. The season drew near without a single sighting of the buck, and word spread that a neighbor or two had harvested

good bucks to start the season. Probably the same deer I had on camera, I thought, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until Nov. 9, 2012, that the buck reappeared, checking a scrape a mere 15 yards from where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d captured him on camera during the summer. It was about 9:30 a.m., and about 15 yards from where my father-in-lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend, Bruce, had placed a tree stand. Unfortunately, Bruce chose a different stand location that morning and the buck managed to elude everyone during the gun season, from what we know. Since setting a trail camera in June, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve managed to capture just two bucks on camera. Neither of those deer is close to the size of the one I had on my camera last season, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if near the end of July, or maybe August, he reappears to torment my dreams once again.

Input sought at early August waterfowl season meetings and hearings MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; People can learn about and provide input on the 2013 Wisconsin waterfowl hunting seasons at a series of meeting and public hearings that begin Saturday, Aug. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we do each year during this time, we request that those with a stake in waterfowl hunting provide input on the upcoming seasons during our public meetings and hearings,â&#x20AC;? said Kent Van Horn, Department of Natural Resources waterfowl ecologist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important we hear from folks whether they want to reDIĂ&#x20AC;UPVXSSRUWIRUSDVWVHDVRQGDWHVRUDUH looking for something different.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer Skiesâ&#x20AC;? and dreams come true WEBSTER - For the past few years, Tex and Laurie Cyms, owners of The Moonglow Restaurant on 7457 W. Main St., Webster, have invited Jim Springett to do a live â&#x20AC;&#x153;paint-outâ&#x20AC;? at their restaurant during the Gandy Dancer Days celebration. For the past two years, Springett has painted live on their premise to sell original oil paintings and donate a special original oil painting to the Webster Community. Donations were made for the Webster dog park just north of town. This year, as an additional special part of the celebration, Springett will be giving his â&#x20AC;&#x153;paint-outâ&#x20AC;? original oil painting to the Larsen Family Library in Webster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am working with Patti Meyer and Laura Rachford on this exciting painting, and if you come to The Moonglow Restaurant on Saturday, Aug. 10, during our Gandy Dancer Days celebration, you can see me painting this painting for the library, live. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be painting a historical painting of the original old library located in Siren,â&#x20AC;? said Springett. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project is the dream of a local Webster boy, 9-year-old Mason Getts, who attends Webster Elementary School. Last year, while reading, he started to think about a new playground for Webster because the current playground is very worn out. Mason, with his parents permission, then went to visit with the Webster Village Board and spoke to them about his dream project. The board granted Mason permission to start to collect dona-

tions. Mason has about six more years in school, and his dream is to see the new playground built by the time he graduates from high school. The original oil painting of sandhill cranes, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer Skies,â&#x20AC;? can be viewed in The Moonglow Restaurant in Webster. Springett is giving this painting to Mason as a gift, and the community can make donations. On Saturday, Aug. 10, at 3:30 p.m. during the Gandy Dancer Days celebration, Mason will come to The Moonglow Restaurant for a photo shoot with his new painting. Donations are being collected at The Moonglow Restaurant and other businesses in Webster. As a special offer for wildlife art enthusiasts making donations of $25 or more, Springett will paint for you and sign an original oil painting of wildlife from Crex Meadows on a 5-inch by 7-inch panel. You may sign up at The Moonglow Restaurant. All proceeds will go toward Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playground project. Others in the community are helping, too. The Whitetail Wilderness Restaurant, just north of town, is donating 100 percent of proceeds from their Picture Bingo game. You can also drop off donations at the village of Webster.

Burnett County administrators debate proper oversight of tower project by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer SIREN - At the monthly administration committee meeting Monday, July 15, some Burnett County Board supervisors raised concerns regarding management of the communications project. Administrator Candace Fitzgerald was on vacation, but according to members of the committee, she had previously expressed her intent to replace the ad hoc committee with a group of professionals who are better suited to manage the more technical logistics of the project. More than one supervisor asserted that the whole point of the ad hoc committee was to provide oversight of the various elements of the communications project, including the federally mandated upgrade to new equipment, the construction and/or maintenance of the nine towers within the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s system and the renovation of

the emergency dispatch center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of this is pretty seat-of-the-pants,â&#x20AC;? opined Supervisor Maury Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about $4 million!â&#x20AC;? exclaimed SuSHUYLVRU*DU\/XQGEHUJ/XQGEHUJZDVPRUHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F about his concerns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting a $4 million project in the hands of someone who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be here in six months.â&#x20AC;? It could be concluded that the discomfort level has more to do with the sheer size of the project than anything else. While some committee members claimed that the right people were not up to speed, Chairman Taylor assured everyone that they were, and there is a continuity plan in place as Fitzgerald exits. In other news, it was determined that if the county wants to compensate sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies for lost vacation time due to being short-staffed, then it also has to pro-

by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer SIREN- According to Siren teacher Brad Morris, 17 high school students studying environmental science are volunteering 16 hours of time each this summer to help prevent the spread of unwanted invasive species at six local lakes. Morrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interest is twofold, given that he also serves as aquatic invasive species coordinator for Burnett County. By participating in the statewide Clean Boat Clean Waters program, the volunteers inspect boats and educate

vacationers and boat owners on the hazards of spreading invasive plants and animals such as Eurasian water milfoil and zebra mussels. )RUWKHĂ&#x20AC;IWK\HDUDQHOHPHQWRIWKHSURJUDPFDOOHGWKH Landing Blitz focused its efforts around holiday tourism from July 4-8. CBCW volunteers are stationed at boat landings on 250 lakes and rivers across 53 Wisconsin counties. In a typical year, over 100,000 watercraft get inspected. According to the DNR, most boat owners are aware of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invasive species law and take adequate pre-

cautions. Unfortunately, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much to contaminate a lake. The presence of invasive species can cause severe damage to local ecosystems, industry and tourism. Therefore, Wisconsin is very proactive in its efforts to manage the problem. An important part of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prevention efforts is working through these volunteers to conduct inspections and engage in educational outreach.

Historic light stations on Apostle Islands closed for preservation work by Mike Simonson Wisconsin Public Radio BAYFIELD - Four 19th century light stations on the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore are closed this summer for an ambitious preservation project. The $4 million projects are in full swing. In all, the Apostle Islands has six light stations with eight towers. Lakeshore Superintendent Bob Krumanaker says the project will not renovate the lighthouses, but it will preserve and stabilize them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though this is a huge amount of work, this is just a down payment,â&#x20AC;? he says. The oldest light station was built in 1856 on Michigan Island. The newest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; also on Michigan Island â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was erected in 1929. Lakeshore historian Dave Cooper says these buildings represent the lives of hardscrabble keepers.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It called for a very versatile individual,â&#x20AC;? says Cooper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just keeping the light and the lantern. It was all the maintenance duty on station. You had to be a boat handler with the ability to transport yourself to and from the mainland.â&#x20AC;? Cooper says the isolation was tough, and gave an example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the winter of 1874 and they ended up feuding so extensively that the families kept to opposite ends of the same building, trying to avoid each other,â&#x20AC;? he says. 7KHZRUNLVH[SHFWHGWREHĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGE\ZLQWHU

FOR ACTIVITIES SUBJECT TO ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT COMBINED NOTICE OF FINDINGS OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS

Date of publication or posting: July 17, 2013 Village of Frederic, WI, 715-327-4294 107 Hope Road W, Frederic, WI 54837 TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS: The above-named grantee has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the following project. The EA is on file at the address above and is available for public examination and copying. Downtown Infrastructure Improvements Street relocation, improvements to the sanitary sewer, storm sewer, electrical and streetlight infrastructure. Frederic, Polk County, Wisconsin $290,321 The grantee has determined that such request for release of funds will not constitute an action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment and, accordingly, the grantee has decided not to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL 91-190). The reason for such decision is: No unusual circumstances suggesting the likelihood of significant environmental consequences have been found. All agencies, groups or individuals disagreeing with this decision are invited to submit written comments to the above address. Such written comments should be received on or before August 1st, 2013. All such comments will be considered, and the grantee will not request the release of Federal funds or begin the project prior to such date. On or about August 2nd, 2013, the Grantee will request the Wisconsin Department of Administration (WDOA) to release Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (PL 93-383) as amended for this project. The grantee is certifying to WDOA that it and its chief executive officer, in his/her official capacity as Village President, consent to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal courts if an action is brought to enforce environmental review responsibilities, decision-making and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. Upon certification, the grantee may use the CDBG funds, and WDOA will have satisfied its responsibilities under the National environmental Policy Act of 1969.

An award-winning weekly serving Northwest Wisconsin since 1933

Local man to compete at Lumberjack World Championships by Danielle Moe Special to the Leader FREDERIC - â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adrenaline pumping, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do almost anything,â&#x20AC;? stated Andrew Jensen, who will be one of hundreds of competitors at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lumberjack World Championships, scheduled for July 25-27 at Hayward. A rookie to the sport, Jensen, 20, began lumberjacking this year as a summer job at Paul Bunyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Northwood Lumberjack Show in the Wisconsin Dells. Since the middle of the 19th century the logging industry formed towns where wilderness once stood and immortalized the men that felled the vast expanses of virgin forest. Today lumberjacks are shadows of a rougher Wisconsin, but their skills and strength are revisited in competitions and shows. Jensen, son of Wendy and Lee Jensen of Frederic, signed up for lumberjacking after his friend, Tyler Alden, was approached by Geno Cummings to be one of several athletes to start the show in the Dells at the Paul Bunyan Cook Shanty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard Tyler talking about that and I WKRXJKWWKDWLVDPDQO\VSRUWWKDWLVGHĂ&#x20AC;nitely something I can get into,â&#x20AC;? stated Jensen. The sport soon proved to be more than Jensen expected and was the beginning of what would be anything less than a typical summer. Cummingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; show involves lumberjacks and jills performing lumberjack skills like ax throwing, logrolling, and speed climbing for audiences. Cummings is a professional lumberjack, also from Frederic, and is ranked 7th in world standings. Alden and Ethan Klawitter, also from Frederic, perform in the show along with Evan Armour from Luck. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lumberjills feature Taylor Duffy and Hannah Mast from Hayward, Amber Scarborough from Madison, and Shana Martin. Duffy, a Hayward native, is the 2011 world champion logroller and two-time world champion boom runner. Martin is a six-time world champion logroller and two-time world champion boom runner.

Working alongside these talented people, Jensen has emerged as an up-andcoming lumberjack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geno talked to me and he said, you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting pretty good and if you keep this up you could be able to go to the (world championship) this year,â&#x20AC;? explained Jensen, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was like, that would be awesome.â&#x20AC;? The LWC draws competitors from across the world and pushes their skills to the limit in timed events like sawing, chopping and logrolling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the speed climb and I really enjoy the springboard chop,â&#x20AC;? stated Jensen. The speed climb event involves scrambling up a spar pole and rocketing GRZQWRWKHĂ&#x20AC;QLVK´,OLNHLWDORWEHFDXVH I excel at it and it is one of the more adrenaline-pumping things,â&#x20AC;? he stated. Speed pole events at the LWC use 60- or 90-foottall poles and competitors use spurred climbing gear and steel-core climbing ropes to scale them. As a rookie at lumberjacking Jensen KDVWUDLQHGKLVKDUGHVWWRĂ&#x20AC;QGKLPVHOILQ D FRPSHWLWLRQ RI FKDPSLRQV  ´,W¡V GHĂ&#x20AC;nitely more than I expected getting into the sport, it is really cool,â&#x20AC;? he observed. His best performance events are the

His experiences as a lumberjack are no exception.â&#x20AC;? What began as a summer job in the Dells for Andrew has turned into a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity, but he is not caught up in the hype. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is going to be a great experience and something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look back on and remember,â&#x20AC;? he said.

speed climbing and ax throw, and entries into both are clear-cut. Pitting his skills against other champions and hopefuls has Jensen pumped, but he has a good mentor as his guide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geno is a really, really good lumberjack, so we all look up to him,â&#x20AC;? said Jensen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He taught us everything we know and he is our mentor.â&#x20AC;?

Forty-seven Colfax gradeschool kids visit Polk County

Into the woods for hikes and a swim

LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was the best day yet.â&#x20AC;? That was the comment from a group of 47 grade-school kids last week after a day of hiking in Straight Lake Park, capped off by a swim in Rainbow Lake. The Indianhead Chapter of the Age Trail Alliance helped host the visit. Last week, the young hikers explored the trails and woods of Polk County. The six-mile hike on the Ice Age Trail in Straight Lake Park was just part of their week. It came after a day at Interstate State Park along the St. Croix River. Their week also included five-mile hikes through a hemlock forest and the hills of the Chippewa Moraine. Between each dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excursion, they camped in an area park. The 47 are grade-school students, grades three through six, from the Colfax School District, taking part in a Summer Saunters program. Summer Saunters is a growing youth

Ice Age Trail hiker raises money for troops STATEWIDE - On Sunday, July 28, Kehly Johnson will be setting out from the eastern terminus of the Ice Age Trail in Potawatomi State Park near Sturgeon Bay on a 1,200-mile, solo, through-hike to raise money for Homes for Our Troops. As a veteran herself, she wants to continue to support her fellow soldiers, but she needs your help. Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan is to hike the entire 1,000-plus miles of Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ice Age Trail, starting July 28 and ending somewhere around September or October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a kid I hiked a few sections of this trail with my dad and my sister but never dreamed I would get an opportunity to hike the entire thing. Now, not only am I going to hike the entire thing, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also going to hike it for a great cause, Homes

(This is because it was intended for space travel, not water, my father explained.) This past week, my dad made me a standing desk. I had been reading about how it was good to stand more often. I read an article which informed me that I was better off standing every 20 minutes and doing no other exercise than going for a run and sitting for the rest of the day. Since â&#x20AC;&#x153;going for a run and sitting for the rest of the dayâ&#x20AC;? pretty much describes my life, I decided I needed to do something drastic. I researched standing desks and found they were rather expensive and very simply made and so I did what I still do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I asked my dad if he could build one for me. He built it without making a trip to the lumber store. My new standing desk is made from cabinet fronts from the house I grew up in, some lumber from my parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement house and some plywood from ...

These objects are imbued with memories of their past lives in the same way my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood collection is, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the practical option of cutting them up and making something new.

Songwriter Jim Croce put it well in his song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to say I love you in a song,â&#x20AC;? because he was unable to do it any other way. Where am I going with this? Celebrating our 30-something anniversary this week, my wife has requested something that has the appearance of simplicity but is actually quite complicated. She wants me to write her a poem. I am assuming this means something with depth and character, although there are many options. An epic ballad from our earliest days until now is out of the question but I could write her a limerick which is simple. I once knew a maid from St. Paul, Who is rather short and not tall. When she cooked me my dinner, I knew sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winner So I married her once and for all. I am quite certain this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what she had in mind so I may have to work on it. Perhaps I could paraphrase Shakespeare: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What light through yonder window breaks? It is my wife and she is up early again!â&#x20AC;? No, that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work either. Regardless of which form the poetic gift takes, I am sure she will cherish it for the remainder of her days. I just hope she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me to recite it.

here is something about keeping old rituals and past times alive. Like American baseball, snail mail and candy shops.

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like preparing for trips. The travel itself isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad, but getting ready is a hassle: the packing, arranging a dog sitter, coordinating schedules, planning destination events, tolls, parking, food, paying for gas. All these things are outside my comfort zone. Still, despite my reluctance to leave, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something uniquely stimulating about the experience of travel. I always come back with ideas. They might be ideas about gardening, or landscaping, or a class Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m teaching, or a different way to relate to a colOHDJXHRUHYHQDPRUHHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQWZD\ to organize my garage or basement. The list of ideas Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had after a period of travel is almost as endless as it is diverse. But why does that happen? What is it about travel that opens up new ways of thinking? According to Scott Kaufman, a cognitive psychologist and founder of Creativitypost.com, travel is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;creativity trigger.â&#x20AC;? The most powerful triggers involve experiences of unusual or un-

Far away but right here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Great Forts Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous

T

he annual extravaganza known as the Great Forts Folle Avoine Rendezvous launches into its 24th season over the weekend of July 26-28. Besides the usual displays, contests, games and demonstrations, the event will also incorporate a wild rice pancake feed on Sunday morning. The artisans, crafters, performers and storytellers who are attracted to the rendezvous resemble a traveling family whose summers consist of not just visiting the past, but, to some extent, living in an earlier era. No time machine required, just intrigue, an assemblage of historically appropriate gear and a place to gather. Sometimes drawing over 300 participants, the Forts Folle Avoine Rendezvous is especially popular given that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s held on the grounds of an actual reconstructed fur trade site. At a time of year when the original traders and voyageurs had canoed to Lake Superior to pick up trade goods forwarded from Montreal, these re-enactors assemble for what many of them consider the highlight of their year. Take veteran participant Kevin Hoyt, for instance, who will be demonstrating historical bead making at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event. Asked about a favorite memory of his years at the Folle Avoine gathering, he was hard-pressed to come up with just one. As he explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me every rendezvous has a story and they have become like the pages of a favorite book. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine how empty my life would be without going to rendezvous. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories unfold before my eyes, loves started, children born, families grow, old friends lost, yet remembered all the more. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watched kids grow up and move on, only to see them return with their new families and incorporate them into the bigger rendezvous family. So to me I think there is

Beatles, the Beach Boys and Elvis Presley out of the open windows while we waited for the doors to open. Once we made it inside the park, I felt as if I had traveled into a utopian society. Families, couples, adults, children, people of all different races and ages joined together in the same joy. Everywhere I looked there was a smile on every face. The smell of bug spray and charcoal wafted through the cooling summer evening air as small children in pajamas collected rocks from the gravel or

played games of tag and catch. Music mingled with laughter as dads grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for their families on portable grills. Couples set up blankets and pillows on the tops of their cars, cuddling as the sun set in the distance. As nighttime fell upon us, we settled into our makeshift theater seats as the entire park held their breath, waiting for the movie to begin. Radio turned up, the sound came through the speakers as the previews came on the giant screen before us. Though indoor movie theaters or rented movies in the comfort of your own home may be more comfortable or have better viewing quality, there is something quite magical about a drivein movie theater. I felt like Sandy from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grease,â&#x20AC;? about to burst into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the One That I Want.â&#x20AC;? Luckily, Michael

DQG,GLGQ¡WKDYHDĂ&#x20AC;JKWRUKHZRXOG have had to sing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alone at the Drive-In Movie.â&#x20AC;? At the end of the movie, sleeping kids were toted back home, cars shifted into newly opened spots, waiting for the second movie to begin. The night went on and crickets sang in the background like intermission music. Gravel crunched beneath our feet as we walked to stretch our legs and the moon, a distant yellow thumbnail, shone above our heads. Doing things the slow way, or the oldschool way, is sometimes so much better than doing things the mainstream, fast way. It teaches you to appreciate the little things like community, laughter and universal joys that bring all different types of people together.

expected events. This makes sense. When the Wondras hit the road, we never quite know what Chris Wondra to expectâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially when we take the inlaws. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whole different columnâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;maybe for Dear Abby or something like that. Anyway, a recent paper in the Journal of Experimental Psychology describes how any life experience can inFUHDVHĂ H[LELOLW\DQGFUHDWLYLW\DVORQJ DVLWDV.DXIPDQVD\V´GLYHUVLĂ&#x20AC;HV your experiences and pushes you outside your normal thought patterns.â&#x20AC;? In the paper, scientists describe a series of experiments in which a group of participants took a virtual tour through a university cafeteria, a pretty straightforward experience until they got to the weird stuffâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;stuff prohibited by the laws of physics. For example, in one

part of the tour, a suitcase on a table got smaller as you approached it and bigger as you moved away. In another part, participants felt like they were walking faster than they actually were. Alice in Wonderland type stuff. After the tour, in as many different ways as they could, participants were asked to answer the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What makes sound?â&#x20AC;? Those who came up with a wider variety of answers were VDLGWREHPRUH´FRJQLWLYHO\Ă H[LEOHÂľ Participants that experienced the weird tour scored higher on the test of FRJQLWLYHĂ H[LELOLW\WKDQWKRVHWKDWWRRN the tour version that followed the normal laws of physics. Subjects that took the weird tour also scored higher than those that simply viewed a video of the weird cafeteria. Apparently, in the Netherlands, where this study was conducted, an open-faced sandwich made with butter and chocolate chips is standard breakfast fare. So this next experiment wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as strange (for them) as we Wisconsinites might think. Personally, if I were running the study, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have asked them to prepare it lightly toasted with a healthy spread of peanut butter. But since nobody asked me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just stick to the facts.

Again, scientists separated people into two groups. One group was asked to prepare the sandwich in an unusual way: by spreading the chocolate chips onto a plate, buttering the bread, and then putting the bread upside down on the plate to pick up the chips. The control group was asked to make the sandwich in the usual way. Again, when tested, those using the odd sandwichmaking procedure scored higher. According to Kaufman, actively experiencing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a violation of how things are supposed to happenâ&#x20AC;? triggers a more FUHDWLYHPLQGVHWE\UHVKXIĂ LQJRXU brains. 6RQH[WWLPH\RXĂ&#x20AC;QG\RXUVHOIVWXFN on a particularly knotty problem, try stepping out of a comfort zone. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (necessarily) have to invite the inlaws on a cross-country trip. Just mix things up a bit. Change a routine, take a different route to work, smile at strangers or try something new for lunch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; maybe something with peanut butter and chocolate. Chris Wondra is just another Wisconsin public schoolteacher. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big fan of weird sandwiches and is also founder of WeTeachWeLearn.org - where parents, teachers and organizational leaders are exploring effective teaching and learning.

only one story, and that all of us are just chapters in it.â&#x20AC;? Asked what prompted his fur trade intrigue, he recalled seeing a voyageur history presentation at Gordon back in the 1980s. After that program, he began researching all he could about the fur trade, and over the years heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned a variety of fur-trade-related crafts, which he readily shares with people at various places and regularly at Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park events. Lately, partly inspired by examining the trade beads unearthed during the archeaological dig at the Folle Avoine WUDGLQJSRVWVVLWHKH¡VWDNHQXSWKHĂ&#x20AC;QH art of glass bead making. As Hoyt explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A while back I met someone in Duluth who was making art glass sculptures. I was amazed at how beautiful the pieces were turning out, and how quickly they were being formed. Being interested in furtrade-era crafts, I thought it would be cool to adapt the process to bead making and at least make myself some nice trade beads to wear with my historic clothing. I started researching about the various fur trade bead styles and the techniques of making lamp-worked beads. From there I plunged in around September of 2012 and have probably made over 5,000 beads since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now started to specialize in fur trade reproduction beads and am selling them at events like the Folle Avoine Rendezvous under the name Sleeping

And he loves to banter with visitors, freely answering questions or demonstrating; just one of dozens of lost arts that are mainstays of each rendezvous encampment. Other events slated for the rendezvous? Too numerous to mention, but they range from black powder musket competitions to tomahawk throws and knife throws to kids games, some scheduled, some spontaneous. And while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there, of course, you can wander through the reconstructed fur trade cabins and meet some characters who think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rather odd, when in fact theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite out of sorts themselves. A variety of food vendors featuring mostly fur-trade-type fare can be found around the grounds, and if you

get down to the riverside you just might wander into a fellow baking bread in DZRRGĂ&#x20AC;UHG)UHQFK&DQDGLDQVW\OH handcrafted clay oven. In other words, a lot happens when 300 or so people hop on board that time machine called Rendezvous.â&#x20AC;? And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more than welcome to join them, visit, chat, tell stories and share a bit of a world thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friendly but foreign, far away but here, right now.

Electronics and hazardous waste collection

(DUWK

O

Jen Barton

ver the last two decades, spectacular advances in technology have led to a dramatic increase in our reliance on electronic products. Televisions, computers, copiers, fax machines, telephones and VCRs, are just some of the electronics that have become a central part of our everyday lives. As product innovations multiply and electronic product use increases, the lifespan of electronic equipment has shrunk. Televisions and fax machines may operate for many years, but several electronic products quickly become obsolete when newer, quicker or better equipment and software hit the shelves. Expensive products are suddenly worth little or nothing, even though we may not want to admit it. As a consumer or a business owner, the question emerges of what to do with old electronic equipment that no longer fully meets your needs. Many used televisions, monitors, printers and other types of electronic HTXLSPHQWDUHĂ&#x20AC;QGLQJWKHLUIDWHLQDWWLFV basements and warehouses. Businesses and households keep these products because they believe that they may still be valuable, but the longer equipment remains in storage, the less useful it becomes. Electronic products often contain hazardous and toxic materials that pose environmental risks if they are landĂ&#x20AC;OOHGRULQFLQHUDWHG7HOHYLVLRQVYLGHR and computer monitors use cathode ray WXEHV ZKLFK KDYH VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQW DPRXQWV of lead. Printed circuit boards contain primarily plastic and copper, and most have small amounts of chromium, lead solder, nickel and zinc. In addition, many electronic products have batteries that often contain nickel, cadmium and other heavy metals. Relays and switches in electronics, especially older ones, may contain mercury. Also, capacitors in some types of older and larger equipment that are now entering the waste stream may contain polychlorinated biphenyls, commonly known as PCBs. Fortunately, Northwest Regional Planning Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Northwest Cleansweep Program is providing an environmentally and economically sound alternative for disposing of electronic equipment. On Saturday, Aug.

1RWHV 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Burnett County Highway Shop near Siren, a special collection will take place along with the established hazardous waste collection event and used medication collection. Most electronic items will be accepted free of charge to residents (fee for businesses, schools and municipalities) who wish to properly dispose of unwanted electrical items. Although, TVs (any size) and computer monitors will be $20. Call Jen with questions on what is accepted 715-635-2197. On Wednesday, Sept. 4, Birchwood and Spooner will host collections. More info to come regarding these collections soon. Reuse is the environmentally preferable option for managing older electronic equipment. Extending the life of old products minimizes the pollution and resource consumption associated with making new products. Reuse also gives people who cannot afford new products access to electronic equipment at reduced or no cost. One way to make recycling electronic products easier is to make wise purchasing decisions. Instead of buying new electronic products, consider repairing or upgrading your current system. If you decide to buy new equipment, ask the equipment manufacturer about reuse and recycling options such as product take-back programs. To promote the use of reused and recycled products, purchase equipment designed for easy repair and upgrade. Consider installing software that runs on older systems, which will enable the next user to make maximum use of an older computer. Do your share to protect our area by recycling and reusing what you can, and reduce what you â&#x20AC;&#x153;need.â&#x20AC;? Recycling makes sense economically and greatly reduces your environmental liability; it enables us to conserve valuable resources while saving valuable ODQGĂ&#x20AC;OOVSDFH5HF\FOLQJJUHDWO\UHGXFHV lead emissions from incinerators, which helps to reduce air pollution. Recycling is the legally, morally and politically correct thing to do.

Tractors take to the road to raise funds to fight cancer

by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer GRANTSBURG - The lineup at the Grantsburg Fairgrounds grew to 24 tractors in all manner of models, sizes and colors before the caravan took to the road on the start of the second-annual Tractor Drive for Cancer Saturday, July 13. Tractor lovers came from all around the area to participate in the drive organized by Harold Hall and Clayton Jorgensen as a fundraiser for the Burnett County American Cancer Society Relay IRU/LIHZKLFKEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVWKRVHLQWKHDUHD affected by cancer. The tractor drivers and their supporters took their time traveling the back roads on a 15-mile ride, taking breaks along the way. 7KHJURXSĂ&#x20AC;UVWVWRSSHGLQDWWKH%XUnett Dairy Cheese Store where they were treated to free ice-cream cones and then at Four Cubs Farms, owned by Cris, Gary and Ben Peterson, for a tour of the family-owned farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milking operation of over 700 cows in a new double-16 parlor. A support vehicle and trailer traveled with the group carrying tools, fuel, air tanks and even a porta-potty. This is the second-annual ride organized by Hall and Jorgensen who got the inspiration for the fundraiser after seeing the Almelund Threshing and Tractor Show annual tractor caravan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were talking about the tractor

caravan and I said we should get a tractor ride going here,â&#x20AC;? said Hall recalling his conversation with Jorgensen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clayton said we should do the ride for cancer and I said, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go for it.â&#x20AC;? Each of the drivers had a story to tell as to their own inspiration for driving a tractor in the ride. Allen Strom participated in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive, driving his late father Duane Stromâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmall M 1953 tractor bearing DQ$PHULFDQĂ DJDQGSODTXH6WURP¡VIDther made honoring his own father and

Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather, Philip Wickstrom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad started putting the flag on the tractor,â&#x20AC;? commented Strom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If , GLGQ¡W GLVSOD\ WKH Ă DJ , WKLQN 'DG would come down and strike me down with lightning.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive had sponsorship from several area businesses. Parker Hannifin employees picked the tractor drive as a special fundraising project with Louie DeMarre and Annie Fletcher presenting a check in the amount of $365 from donations raised to

tractor drive organizer Karen Jorgensen just before the start of the drive. Along with the donation from Parker +DQQLĂ&#x20AC;QDQGLWVHPSOR\HHVRWKHUEXVLnesses donating to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive included the Burnett Dairy, Grantsburg Sanitation Service and the Burnett County Sentinel.

A Word From Dick Dear Friends, I am so humbled by your outpouring of love. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to come up with adequate words to express the deep feelings, honor and appreciation I have in my heart for you who joined me in celebrating Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faithfulness throughout my 80 years of living in the joy of His presence. You have called, sent over 200 emails, letters and greeting cards, sent gifts and traveled miles by plane or vehicle to join me, my family and many friends at the open house at TWFM. Accepting hugs, smiles, handshakes, words of kindness and encouragement, has blessed me beyond all measures. Wow! To God be the glory, great things He has done. I am honored to have had the privilege of serving our Lord with you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you and to my dear family for making it all possible. Always remember, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus loves you.â&#x20AC;? Keep living for Jesus. Humbly overwhelmed yet rejoicing.

The sign is expected to be up and mounted before summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end.
