County administrators debate debt policy, vacation for short-staffed sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies

%ULHĂ \ POLK COUNTY - A local 17-year-old fell ill this week after contracting a water-borne virus, cryptosporidium, apparently after swimming in the Clam Falls Flowage on Monday, June 17. The virus was identified in a laboratory test this week at a local hospital. Cryptosporidium is relatively widespread in the environment and commonly found in rivers and lakes, especially when the water is contaminated with animal wastes, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. The virus produces a bout of watery diarrhea, and the infection usually goes away within a week or two, but for those with a compromised immune system, a cryptosporidium infection can become life-threatening without proper treatment. Two decades ago, the largest documented waterborne disease, cryptosporidium, outbreak in U.S. history occurred in Milwaukee, sickening more than 400,000. - Gary King with information from mayoclinic.com â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ WESTERN WISCONSIN â&#x20AC;&#x153;The West Sideâ&#x20AC;? will discuss YDULRXVWRSLFVFRQFHUQLQJĂ&#x20AC;VKeries management for the summer edition of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The West Side Outsideâ&#x20AC;? on Wisconsin Public Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ideas Network, Thursday, June 27, at 5 p.m. on 88.3 WHWC-FM/ Menomonie-Eau Claire.

by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTYâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;At the Wednesday, June 19, administration committee meeting, BurQHWW &RXQW\ RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOV GLVFXVVHG the debt policy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been over 10 years since the county had one, and county Administrator Candace Fitzgerald reminded the committee that WKH*RYHUQPHQW)LQDQFH2IĂ&#x20AC;FHUV Association requires that local government bodies adopt a comprehensive debt management policy. According to the GFOA website, such a policy would set debt limits, outline practices for debt structuring and issuance, and provide guidelines for debt management. Supervisor Maury Miller stated a concern that because money management is philosophical in nature, the conversation should be tabled until the

county hires a new administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want the new administrator to have buy-in,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concern was that once a policy was in place, someone might take that as a license to max out the limits. Board Chair Donald Taylor countered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it matters.â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald pressed the need for a policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A policy is not a philosophy. The policy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make you take on debt,â&#x20AC;? she argued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s required that we have one.â&#x20AC;? Supervisor Chuck Awe agreed and took a practical approach. Explaining how the state mandate to keep budgets at zeroincrease has hurt the county, Awe said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been deferring capital investment to fund operational increases. We need a strategy.â&#x20AC;?

$QRWKHU FRQĂ LFW DURVH DPLG a discussion regarding deputy vacation time. Because the VKHULII¡V RIĂ&#x20AC;FH KDV EHHQ VKRUW staffed all year, many deputies have been unable to take time off. The county has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;use-itor-lose-itâ&#x20AC;? policy when it comes to vacation, however, all the supervisors agreed that the ofĂ&#x20AC;FHUVVKRXOGEHHQWLWOHGWRWKHLU earned vacation in some form. Although vacation time could be rolled into the next year, supervisors thought it would be logistically easier and probably less costly to offer a buy out of vacation time instead. Although a motion passed to pay out vacations, the matter was later tabled until the July meeting, pending the outcome of the ongoing grievance hearing affecting the VWDWXVRIWZRRIĂ&#x20AC;FHUVRQSDLGDGministrative leave.

/RJ*DEOHVSURSHUW\ In other news, it appears that the county will soon begin cleanup of the Log Gables property. Back in March, interested buyers prompted a request for proposals to clean up the property. The proposals have been hard to compare because it has since been discovered that there is an asbestos issue and a possible issue with the well that is causing variations in the bid costs (which range from $11,900 WR    &RXQW\ DWWRUQH\ Dave Grindell recommends taking care of the property as soon as possible to reduce/eliminate liability. County clerk Wanda Hinrichs was granted the ability to award to the lowest bidder once all suppliers were given an opportunity to adjust their bids in light of the new information.

Attorneys for fired deputies granted delay of grievance hearing SIREN - The attorneys representing two former Burnett County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies were granted a request to delay a grievance hearing, which began Monday, June 10, at the Burnett County Government Center. The rest of the hearing has been postponed to Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23. The county argued its case to support the termination of the

RIĂ&#x20AC;FHUVRYHUWKHWKUHHVFKHGXOHG days of the hearing, June 10-13, and when it was the officers turn, their attorneys asked for a delay in the proceedings, noting they had not received all the documents they had requested.

Man taken into custody following shooting

BURNETT COUNTY - A 56-year-old Spooner man is in custody facing criminal charges following a shooting at a residence on CTH A on Wednesday evening, June 19. Angus R. Semple, according to a statement by the Burnett County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, shot Russell Scutowski, 60, Spooner, at a home in the 28000 block of CTH A in the Town of

Scott. Scutowski, who was located at another residence in the Town of Scott by authorities, was taken to a Duluth hospital $QJXV56HPSOH with non-lifethreatening

injuries. An initial investigation indicates Scutowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend was at Sempleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home after she and Scutowski had an argument. According to a news release issued by the Burnett County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department on Thursday, June 20, the report of the shooting was received at approximately 10:45 p.m. Semple was taken into cus-

Man recovering from injuries suffered in bear attack

by Larry Samson Special to the Leader ROBBINSDALE, Minn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jerry Brown is recovering from the injuries he suffered in a bear attack at his Burnett County home in rural Shell Lake. The attack came on the evening of Monday, June 17. He is now able to tell his story. At around 9 p.m., Brown let his dog, Cricket, outside to relieve himself. The dog did not want to go outside. Brown stepped out of the door to encourage Cricket and was attacked by a large black bear. The bear had Brown by the arm, dragging him, when Cricket came out of the house and went for the bear. This gave Brown the opportunity to get away from the bear. Brown did not get far when the bear swatted him from behind, smashing him in the side of his face. Cricket came back at the bear, saving Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life by letting him get away for the second time. Brown ran toward his brother Randyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, screaming for help. Pam Brown saw her brother-in-law running to their house and called her husband, Randy. Randy was leaving the house, Pam gave him the .45mm pistol. He met Jerry on the trail with the bear in

hot pursuit. As Jerry passed him, Randy shot at the bear twice. The bear turned off and ran between several buildings and down an embankment. Running to cut off the bear, Randy shot at the bear

several times; he was not sure that he had hit it. The Browns put Jerry in a truck and Randy took him to the Indianhead Medical Center in Shell Lake. From there he was airlifted to North Memorial in Robbinsdale, Minn. When Randy returned to Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home he found the door still wide open and Cricket alone and scared. Cricket was taken to Northern Lakes Vet Clinic in Shell Lake where he underwent two hours of surgery for his injuries. Tim and Jo Ullom, Sunset Pet Retreat, Shell Lake, paid the vet bill.

The DNR has set several traps out around the Brown farm in an effort to capture the bear and destroy it.

Christine Thomas, professor and dean of the College of Natural Resources at UW-Stevens Point, gave the keynote address on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Citizens Role in Conservation.â&#x20AC;? Her speech highlighted the importance of being engaged at all levels of the policy process. Breakout sessions included discussions centered around lakes and a citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in their proper management and protection of area waters. Alex Smith and Pamela Toshner, both with the Wisconsin DNR, presented their presentation â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Lakes.â&#x20AC;? Toshner pointed out the similarities between the development that changed Lake Chad in Africa, and the walleye spawn in Wisconsin lakes. Due to low lake levels caused from ill-planned development, not only is Lake Chad and the surrounding wildlife suffering, the dust from Lake Chad has been linked to be the cause of dying coral reefs off the coast of Africa. Toshner explained that the same effect can happen here when any exposed VRLOQHDUDODNHFRXOGĂ&#x20AC;OOLQZDOOH\HV¡SUHcious gravel beds, cutting off available spawning areas. This real-life example highlights the devastating effect people can have on a lake ecosystem, and how it is also up to us to properly care for these precious resources.

Smith and Toshnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk was only one of 12 educational discussions that covered topics from salamanders to updates on water zoning regulations. This was the second year that the Northwest Wisconsin Lakes conference was held at the Spooner High School, and the 15th year it has offered up-to-date lake information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year folks told us they really liked the location,â&#x20AC;? said John Haack, regional resources educator with UW-Extension in Spooner.

Administrator announces plans to do more for Native American students by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer SIRENâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;During the regular Siren School Board meeting Monday, June 24, district Administrator Scott Johnson spoke on behalf of the Indian Education Parent Committee and reported generally positive feedback from a survey recently conducted by home-school coordinator Tara Voss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good news is that Native American students feel accepted here; there are no feelings of racism,â&#x20AC;? Johnson reported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, both students and parents think we could do more to incorporate native culture and history throughout our curriculum.â&#x20AC;? Johnson explained the need for greater accountability to the board by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the school wants to continue to receive Title VII grants and Impact Aid, then we need to make strides to comply with the terms of Act 31.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear why Johnson implied that these funds may be at risk. Given Sirenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current efforts and the rules of these programs, the school is already meeting and/or exceeding compliance standards. Title VII grants are federally funded from the Department of Education and are made available to tribes and local educational agencies that provide education for at least 10 Native American students or no less than 25 percent of the student body. The grant reimburses schools for the per-pupil expense of providing a comprehensive program to meet the needs of native students. Elements of that program would include culturally related activities, early childhood and family programs, enrichment programs, career preparation, substance-abuse educaWLRQDQGSUHYHQWLRQOLWHUDU\VHUYLFHVDQGVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FFXU-

riculum content. According to the U.S. Department of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, the funds may be used to establish schoolwide initiatives, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not required. Impact Aid, also called Title VIII, is money designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt property such as tribal lands or federally owned property. Most Impact Aid funds are considered general aid, and the funds can be used in whatever manner the district chooses including capital expenditures, salaries or AP classes. Impact Aid money is, therefore, not tied to Native American programs and, unless the grant was obtained for the purpose of accommodating disabled students or for a construction project, the district is not held accountable for how the funds are used. Act 31 is a state law implemented in 1989 that requires the teaching of Chippewa treaty rights and instruction through the social studies curriculum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; twice at the elementary level and once at the secondary level â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the subject of Wisconsin tribal groups including history, culture and tribal sovereignty. Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urging to be more compliant with Act 31 should not be misconstrued as noncompliance. On the contrary, Johnson said in a follow-up interview, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, Siren has some very good instructional practices in place consistent with Act 31, but we feel we can do more.â&#x20AC;? Johnson went on the praise teachers for their eagerness to do so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our teachers have expressed an interest in knowing how to learn more about our Native students and community, so we intend to bring that information to them,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said, referring to his desire to conduct

more training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have educators who want to learn how to be the most culturally sensitive and culturally responsive they can be to meet our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs.â&#x20AC;? It would be hard for anyone to argue that Siren school is culturally insensitive. If a visitor started at the north end RIWKHEXLOGLQJWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWKLQJKHZRXOGVHHLVDURRP\ 1DWLYH$PHULFDQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHRQWKHOHIWDQGDPXVHXPTXDOity display case with native artifacts on the right. Proceeding down the hallway, the visitor would see a large, painted mural of tribal dancers, and just 6 feet away from that is a poster display featuring various types of native dances. Further into the school is the Wall of Honor, where this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inductee, Stuart Decorah, is pictured in full regalia. Decorah was honored posthumously at the recent graduation ceremony that also featured other nods to tribal customs including a drum ceremony. And just a little farther on is a large wall mosaic that depicts DQ HDJOH Ă \LQJ RYHU PRRQOLW HYHUJUHHQ WUHHV ZLWK D white person and a Native American gazing up at it in the foreground. All of this is included in a school that displays very little artwork or signage of any other kind. But Johnson wants to see academic strides made as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal to reduce the achievement gap between native and non-native students,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be on the forefront of that.â&#x20AC;? More speFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\-RKQVRQDGYRFDWHGDVWXG\RIFRPPRQSUDFWLFHV of other school districts that are successful in this area and hopes that by implementing those strategies, Siren will become a leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see Siren become a model program for other districts,â&#x20AC;? Johnson concluded.

Water utility improvements under way in Webster

Much of the improvements were paid for by the DNR Safe Drinking Water program and a CDBG grant, but the village will bear a portion of the estimated $1.3 million cost. On Thursday, June 13, the village began the process to secure a $331,752, 20-year bond at a 1.155 interest rate. ,QRWKHUEXVLQHVV In business during the regular board meeting on Wednesday, June 12, the village board received a $5,185 bid for curb and line painting along Main Street, the highway and the fairgrounds from Fahner. Siren Village also owns painting equipment, but the board decided not to rent this equipment, at least this year, because of the

time constraints on the public works department during the water utility improvements. The two-year mowing bid was opened. There was only one bid this year from Keith Martini / Yellow River Construction. The village will pay $5,350 for each year of mowing, plus $78 per hour for assigned extra mowing. The mowing costs to the village are up this time around.

Surprise insurance increase hits SCF schools

How to pay for changes up in the air

by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last-minute news to the St. Croix Falls Board of Education was not good as they met on Tuesday, June 25, as Administrator Glenn Martin informed the board that their health inVXUDQFHFDUULHU+HDOWK3DUWQHUVQRWLĂ&#x20AC;HG them that due to several large claims, the district had a so-called 100 loss ratio, which meant the policy would need to be adjusted by over 10 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just informed today,â&#x20AC;? Martin said as they outlined the issue. Since legislative action two years ago through Act 10, the district generally has its employees pay 12.4 percent of their health insurance costs, and the issue is whether the possible changes may force the district to increase that percentage or adjust co-pays and decrease services. $UHSUHVHQWDWLYHIRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UPZDVQRWDW WKHPHHWLQJEXWGLVWULFWĂ&#x20AC;QDQFHPDQDJHU Darci Krueger outlined the concerns, noting that while the district has the option to opt out of the contract, it would cost them over $170,000 in penalties, which is close to what the district spends on insurance in one month. .UXHJHU VDLG WKH Ă&#x20AC;UP LV QRW KRQRULQJ previous contract issues, citing future AfIRUGDEOH +HDOWK &DUH $FW 2EDPDFDUH  FRVWDGMXVWPHQWVIRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UPVHWWRWDNH effect in the fall of 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the kind of stuff thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so frustrating ... theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re imposing penalties on something that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even happened yet,â&#x20AC;? stated board member Sheri Norgard, who said that while they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hon-

Krueger was also concerned that however the board decides to cover the increases, they want the employees to be aware of the process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have concerns about perceived transparency, with employees being gone for several months,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people coming back in the fall and have them hear, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh by the way, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost VRPHRI\RXUEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVWKDW\RXZHUHVXSposed to get the last contract.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The possible increase to the district

is also a major issue as they have not budgeted for the seemingly inevitable increase, which could amount to over $18,000 per month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Face it, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t absorb over 87 percent of that cost increase,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should impact everybody equally.â&#x20AC;? The board took no action but will pass the info and concerns along to a committee so they can weigh the impact and query employees for suggestions or opinions on the best way to offset the costs.

The board also approved the resignations of Jasmine Mederich as dance coach and Ryan Stridde as an assistant high school track and cross-country coach. â&#x20AC;˘ The board held a major discussion on parking lot repaving concerns and approved a motion to pay up to $155,000 for repaving, with some additional lining and painting costs later. There are some drainage concerns on the east side of the high school parking and Martin said there are several ways to adjust for the problems, which they may need to address with Monarch Paving, the winning bidder on the project, or ZLWKDQRWKHUĂ&#x20AC;UPWRGRVRPHODQGVFDSLQJ adjustments after the fact. Some of the project costs will come from the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fund balance, which Martin said he was perfectly comfortable with. â&#x20AC;˘ The board had an update on security upgrades, some of which are already under way. They are also in the process of upgrading security cameras, to change from analog black and white to digital color, for better clarity and ability to identify problems. They are going to seek more estimates on the camera upgrades.

meeting Monday, June 24, Superintendent Scott Johnson updated the board on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget status. Legislators have submitted a two-year budget for Gov. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature, which should EHGRQHE\-XO\´7KLVZLOOGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\EH a landmark time in education,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. Educators have been watching the process closely this year, largely because of the proposed expansion to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school voucher system. While no one opposes the idea of school choice, Johnson referred to the statewide expansion as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the scariest thing of allâ&#x20AC;? and explained that public educators are strongly opposed to using taxpayer money previously provided to public schools to fund a private system with different accountability standards. Johnson also indicated that there is widespread criticism over the decision-making process, citing late-night closed sessions expanding vouchers from nine school districts to the entire state, the lack of public forums to discuss concerns and the inability to submit amendments to the proposed budget. The board accepted the resignations of Franklin Nau, high school special education instructor, and Faith McNally, K-12 guidance counselor. The board hired Tammy Merth as the new district secretary and Becky Wicklund as the part-time reading specialist. The board scheduled a special meeting on Wednesday, June 26, WR GLVFXVV DGPLQLVWUDWLYH VWDIĂ&#x20AC;QJ  7KH next regular school board meeting will be Monday, July 22.

Siren School Board appoints Peggy Moore to replace Cate Hayman by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer SIRENâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;After two weeks of advertising for candidates, only two individuals, Chuck Awe and Peggy Moore, applied for the open school board seat left vacant by Cate Haymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abrupt resignation last month. Both Awe and Moore are passionate about education and community involvement. Awe just completed his term as president of the Siren Lions Club and represents the towns of Daniels and Wood River on the Burnett County Board of Supervisors, serving as chair of the infrastructure and capital improvement committees and vice chair of the landuse committee.

BONE LAKE - The Bone Lake Town Board enacted an ordinance to regulate ATV travel on all town roads one year ago in June. The ordinance had a provision in it to be reviewed after being in effect for one year. There had been several minor violations of the ordinance reported to the town board in the past months. The violations had then been relayed to the Luck ATV Club, where they were quickly KDQGOHGDQGWKHSUREOHPVUHFWLĂ&#x20AC;HG7KH main problem had been riders using the ditches for roadway entry instead of entering from existing driveways. Also, some riders were traveling on the road shoulders rather than the extreme right side of the paved and gravel roads. ATV drivers are also expected to slow down to 10 mph when passing a private residence. At the Thursday, June 13, meeting of the town board, the decision was made to continue with the ATV ordinance, as written, with the deletion of the one-year review section. As with any town ordinance, it may be revisited and amended or rescinded at any time. In September 2012, Bone Lake enacted an ordinance imposing a moratorium on the expansion of existing, and the creation of any new, nonmetallic mining operations within the town. The purpose of this moratorium was to allow the town board adequate time to study the possible impacts that nonmetallic mining operations and processing plants that are related to such operations may have on the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town of Bone Lake. Other concerns were air and water quality, property values and potential impact to the infrastructure of the town. It would also allow the town and town residents the opportunity to consider enacting zoning or other regulatory ordinances so as to effectively regulate nonmetallic mining operations and related processing plants. The moratorium prohibited the creation of any new or expansion of any existing mining operations or related pro-

Rep. Milroy applauds restoration of veterans property tax credit SUPERIOR - State Rep. Nick Milroy, DSouth Range, Wednesday, June 19, expressed his appreciation to colleagues on both sides of the aisle for standing up for veterans and restoring the veterans property tax credit in the budget bill. In the budget bill approved by the Joint Finance Committee, property taxes for 100-percent disabled veterans and their spouses and unremarried spouses of veterans killed in Iraq and Afghanistan would have increased nearly $21 million. In response, Democratic members of the Assembly Veterans Committee sent a letter to Speaker Robin Vos and Joint Finance Committee Co-Chair John Nygren asking that they work with Democrats to restore the veterans property tax credit. In addition, Milroy reached out to all Assembly Republicans asking for their bipartisan support for the veterans who KDYHVDFULĂ&#x20AC;FHGVRPXFKIRURXUFRXQWU\

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As written, the budget would end the property tax credit for certain veterans,â&#x20AC;? Milroy told his Republican colleagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is particularly disheartening, given that the proposed budget funds tax cuts for the wealthiest individuals in this state by raising taxes on disabled veterans. It simply does not make sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am asking that you work with this side of the aisle in maintaining current statutory language that rightfully helps our veterans with their property taxes,â&#x20AC;?

The council will need to make a decision in the coming weeks as to how to offset the costs, and they must show the state they can pay for their share. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until the last minute,â&#x20AC;? Greve said, noting that they could forfeit the DNRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal forgiveness if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act promptly, which would mean an even higher cost.

REVIEW: A couple of mustaches short of perfect

Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For Youâ&#x20AC;? is a well-tuned jewel

by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Over a century ago, as the American Wild West began to blossom from the sand, saloons and dining halls became the veritable center of the entertainment universe and they all had pianos. However, in the remote and rough Old West, piano tuners were as rare as clean sheets on a Saturday. So there was a trick they would employ called tacking. Pianists who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tune that clunky old piano would place thumbtacks or upholstery tacks on the strikers and then â&#x20AC;&#x153;adjustâ&#x20AC;? them for tune. It was a risk, as they could potentially sound like carnivalesque organs - think the Beatlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rocky Raccoonâ&#x20AC;? - a spectacular sound in an otherwise pitchy world, or it could be a musical disaster where â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kitten on the Keysâ&#x20AC;? seems orchestrated. The Festival Theatre Company took a similar risk by choosing an adaption of the play based on George and Ira Gershwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so-called last musical, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For You,â&#x20AC;? as the kickoff to open their ambitious 2013 drama season. They highlighted that gamble on summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s literal cusp, Thursday, June 20, just a few dozen hours short of the summer solstice. If this is a preview of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead for the Festival troupe, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a killer summer. The musical/comedy/dancetopia production is also the directorial debut of veteran Festival alum and multitalented staple Jaclyn Johnson, who takes on the ambitious adaption with aplomb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For Youâ&#x20AC;? as your local directorial debut is like going straight from driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ed class to bank-robbery getaway driver. And it really works. It works because it is a seamless, entertainment landscape, from the scenery that transforms the stage from Big Apple street scene to Old West saloon. With a troupe of talent so rich and perfectly cast, they seem to have been doing this show for months already. One can only imagine what a few more nights of run-throughs will mean.

OK, there is one other thing, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not this companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault. It seems history - or make that certain foreign car companies have murdered some of the otherwise infectious Gershwin tunes from this show, turning them into endlessly repeated, bad jingles for economy cars with the stylings of a vacuum cleaner. How the crowd recognizes these timeless melodies will vary between generations. Again, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m nitpicking to the extreme. But in reality, this is the kind of musical show that can get children, adults and everything in between on board the live theater bandwagon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For Youâ&#x20AC;? is a showcase of dozens of talented folks who could all easily be leads but, instead, EHFRPHSHUIHFWO\Ă&#x20AC;WWLQJSLHFHVLQDUHDOO\ FRROĂ&#x20AC;QDOSX]]OH To put it in Old West terms, as those dusty, louvered saloon doors open, the lilting rhythms of that thumbtack-bejew-

Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notes ... by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS - In an exclusive interview with the Leader, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For Youâ&#x20AC;? director Jaclyn Johnson addressed the elaborate production behind the unique musical, noting that she has directed other stage plays, but never before at Festival, and never such a bold production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by far the largest, most ambitious full-length feature Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve attempted,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a joy to see (the FDVW JRIURPZKHUH\RXZDQWWRVHHLW JRWRWKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOSURGXFW7KH\¡YHVXUpassed my vision!â&#x20AC;? Johnson gives lots of credit to choreographer and co-star Andrew Bradford-Benson, who helped turn her interpretation of the play that uses music, dance and comedy to highlight love and loss, all under the cloud of the dark, foreclosure-stained 1934 America. She said Bensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talents helped turn it LQWRDWLJKWĂ&#x20AC;QDOSURGXFW â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just great to work with him on this,â&#x20AC;? she said, stating that the smaller stage size and limited cast meant they had extra challenges, but they used those challenges to make it even more personal and entertaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, it became kind of fun to play on (those OLPLWV Âľ She also noted the broad musical talents of the cast, which not only exhibits astounding vocal prowess, but also an impressive mix of instrumental talents from stand-up bass to guitar, violin and several piano numbers. She said that even the elaborate percussion number became a sort of unique challenge from the original script. To pull it off, Johnson said she gathered several items from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prop shop and allowed each cast memEHU WR Ă&#x20AC;QG RQH WKH\ FRXOG XVH IURP D deck of cards to a beer bottle, furniture or dish ware. She said they then worked out a rudimentary â&#x20AC;&#x153;songâ&#x20AC;? with her counting in time and the cast improvising their own instruments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We then used those props as a back story,â&#x20AC;? she revealed, noting how the cast

then developed their own reasons for having the items in that scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it really works! I love working with artists to explore and make something out of experimentation.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For Youâ&#x20AC;? practice schedule was also a challenge, as they had less than month, often working with an incomplete cast, to bring it from cold reads WRWKHĂ&#x20AC;QDOVWDJHSURGXFW$QDFWRUE\ trade, she admits that it was hard, at times, to stay on the sidelines and not be a part of the cast, but said the directorial angle is an extra challenge she was happy to attempt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very different,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different set of artistic goals ... but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible joy to sit on the outside and see that vision come to life.â&#x20AC;? Johnson praised the 2013 cast and said the company was gifted with such extraordinary actors to try out, especially with such diverse musical, instrumental and dance talents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is extraordinary that the right people showed up to audition,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that the play was written to highlight so many of the Gershwin classics. The pool of gifted actors and musicians inspired her to have extra FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHHDUO\RQ´,WZDVH[WUDRUGLnary to know we had such talented vocalists from the get go.â&#x20AC;? The unique â&#x20AC;&#x153;changeoverâ&#x20AC;? summer schedule means there will be different shows in a very short turnaround window, helped in part by multiuse stage props, carpentry designs and interchangeable sets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to lure people from out of town to see more than one show in a weekend,â&#x20AC;? she said. Johnson will be back onstage for several of the other Festival productions WKLV VXPPHU EXW VKH LV FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQW WKDW crowds will be impressed by all the troupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 offerings.

by Marty Seeger Leader staff writer CLEAR LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Clear Lake native Burleigh Grimes is one of only four Major League Baseball players from Wisconsin to be inducted into Major League Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Fame, and the story of how he got there is the subject of a new book released by author Joe Niese titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Burleigh Grimes: Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Legal Spitballer.â&#x20AC;? Grimes was born in 1893 and played with the biggest names in the history of the game from 1916 to 1934. He played with seven different teams, including the Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Giants, Boston Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees, but eventually retired as a Brooklyn Dodger. 7KH ULJKWKDQGHG SLWFKHU Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG ZLWK a lifetime ERA of 3.32 and won 270 caUHHU JDPHV ZLWK Ă&#x20AC;YH VHDVRQV ZKHUH KH recorded 20 or more wins. He was also manager of the Dodgers in 1937 and 1938 alongside Babe Ruth, and of course, the last legal spitballer ever to play the game, but as Niese pointed out during a recent phone interview, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more to Burleigh than that.â&#x20AC;? Grimes was born in Emerald, located in St. Croix County, but as a son of a nomadic farm family, eventually found life rooted in the Clear Lake area at around the age of 5. Niese said his baseball career began at the age of about 9 years old when he played for the Clear Lake Redjackets youth team. He was also a bat boy for the Clear Lake Yellowjackets, a talent team coached by his dad. Grimes played two years of high school baseball before dropping out his sophoPRUH \HDU GXH WR Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLDO UHDVRQV )RU Grimes to play, he would have had to travel to Amery or New Richmond, so instead, Grimes played for his dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Yellowjackets team, where he got off to a rocky start in his opening debut. As a result, fans reacted to the coach, Nick Grimes, and from then on, Grimes never pitched another home game for the Yellowjackets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think his dad was ticked by how they told him how to manage the team,â&#x20AC;? Niese said, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long before Burleigh Grimes started blossoming into a forceful pitcher and started striking out batters by the dozens. Grimes eventually began his professional baseball career in Eau Claire in 1912 but that was short-lived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their leagues folded midway through the season, and he was forced to move to Austin, Minnesota, to play,â&#x20AC;? Niese said. After playing the next three to four years in the minor leagues, Grimes was signed by the Pittsburg Pirates at the end

out the rest of their careers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of how he became the last legal spitballer because he was one of the 17 that were grandfathered in to be pitching,â&#x20AC;? Niese said.

7KHDUWRIDVSLWEDOO Up until his retirement in 1934, Grimes was able to use his spitball, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it very often according to Niese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every pitch heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have his hand up to his mouth whether he was going to throw it or not,â&#x20AC;?

The north all-star team includes 18 seniors from Luck, New Auburn, Northwood, Bruce and Prairie Farm. Luckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Evan Armour, Brody Kunze, Kyle Hunter, Joe Christensen and Eric Blaser will be competing and have been practicing this week in Rice Lake, while south teams have been practicing at Wayland Academy. Athletes from the south include 19 athletes from Abundant Life, Wayland Academy, Green Bay New Lutheran, Valley Christian, Stockbridge, Elkhart Lake Glenbulah, Oneida Nation and Three Lakes. Many of these teams went from 11-man football to eight-man teams in the 2012 season. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marty Seeger with submitted information 7KHHLJKWPDQIRRWEDOODOOVWDUFODVVLFLVVFKHGXOHGIRU6DWXUGD\-XQHLQ5LFH/DNHEHJLQQLQJDWSPz/HDGHUILOHSKRWR

Burleigh Grimes/Continued from previous page as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Stubblebeard.â&#x20AC;? The slippery elm caused his skin to break out on his face, so to avoid the irritation, Grimes grew out a 5 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock shadow before every game, which made him an intimidating Ă&#x20AC;JXUHRQWKHPRXQG The spitball was also a tough pitch to throw, and Niese likened the delivery of the pitch to squeezing a watermelon VHHG*ULPHVEURNHĂ&#x20AC;QJHUQDLOVRQPDQ\ occasions trying to throw the pitch, and LWZDVDOVRGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRFRQWUROZKLFKOHG to Grimes getting a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad guyâ&#x20AC;? reputation

on the mound.

*ULPHVWLHVWR:HEVWHU Along with being a native of Clear Lake, Niese said that Grimes spent many offseason days at a cabin he owned on Yellow Lake in Webster for several decades. It also may have led to a big turning point in his career. Grimes had a few down years in the mid-1920s, which led to his getting traded back to the Pirates in 1927-28, which ended up being a couple of his best years as a major leaguer.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think his offseason training there really kind of turned his career around. He really dedicated himself to getting conditioned, whether it was walking around in VQRZVKRHV RU KXQWLQJÂľ1LHVHVDLG

,OOXVWULRXVFDUHHUFRPHVWRDQHQG Grimes made a total of four World Series appearances and helped lead the St. Louis Cardinals to two consecutive appearances in 1930-31. In 1931, Grimes won two games in the Cardinals world championship, despite suffering through appendix problems, which bothered him for years. He was then traded a year later to the Chicago Cubs, where the Cubs also went to the World Series, but lost in four games to the Yankees. It was also the series when Babe Ruth hit his â&#x20AC;&#x153;called shotâ&#x20AC;? home run, and both teams, combined, featured 13 future hall of famers. Grimes didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop associating with baseball after retiring in 1934. He was a manager in the minors, and the Dodgers in 1937-38, and was eventually inducted into the Wisconsin Hall of Fame in 1954.

He earned his place in Cooperstown in 1964 and was a scout for the Orioles until 1970. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He actually helped build those big Orioles pitching staffs in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s, early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s,â&#x20AC;? Niese said. Grimes never forgot about his hometown in Clear Lake, however, and moved back home in 1980 before passing away in 1985. Clear Lake was also the place where Niese was able to get much of the material for his book, through Charles Clark at the Clear Lake Historical Museum. Clark was like a son to Grimes and shared artifacts, stories and photos for Nieseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, which can be purchased on his website at joeniese.com or other Internet sources such as amazon.com. Niese, who is from Chippewa Falls, will also be at Clear Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heritage Days event on Friday, June 28, from about 10 a.m., to 1 p.m., to sell his book. He is also in the process of writing a second book, with the next focusing on the baseball career of Boyceville native Andy Pafko.

Ruffed grouse survey indicates slight population decline MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ruffed grouse populations in Wisconsin have shown another slight decline this spring, according to results of the recently completed roadside ruffed grouse survey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The index that Wisconsin uses to track ruffed grouse decreased 9 percent between 2012 and 2013,â&#x20AC;? said Brian Dhuey,

Department of Natural Resources wildlife surveys coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This decrease isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unexpected at this point in the population cycle. Ruffed grouse populations are known to boom and bust over a nine- to 11-year cycle. Grouse populations in Wisconsin tend to be at their peak in years ending in a nine or zero.â&#x20AC;?

The roadside survey to monitor the number of breeding grouse has been conducted by staff from the DNR, U.S. Forest Service, tribal employees and numerous grouse enthusiasts and volunteers since 1964. Surveyors begin 30 minutes before sunrise and drive along established routes, making 10 stops at assigned points and listening for four minutes for the distinctive â&#x20AC;&#x153;thump, thump, thumpâ&#x20AC;? sounds made by drumming male grouse. Results from this survey help DNR biologists monitor the cyclic population dynamics of ruffed grouse in the state. The number of drums heard per stop in 2013 was down 9 percent statewide from the previous year. One of the primary regions for grouse in the state, the central region, showed an 18 percent drop in the number of drums heard per stop, yet the other primary region in the north showed a 2 percent increase. Intensive surveys were also run on two research areas. The Sandhill Wildlife Area in Wood County showed a decline of 5 percent. The Stone Lake Experimental Area in Oneida County showed an increase of 2 percent. According to Scott Walter, DNR upland wildlife ecologist, maturation of southern Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forest community in recent decades, and the resulting loss of dense, brushy areas that grouse need for cover, has contributed to lower numbers of grouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ruffed grouse are closely linked to young forest habitats that develop following large disturbances, notably logging activities,â&#x20AC;? Walter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we

often focus as hunters on grouse numbers in a single year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember that the long-term health of grouse and other early-successional wildlife is dependent upon our ability to create the dense, young cover they require. Lacking VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQW EURDGVFDOH IRUPV RI QDWXUDO GLVWXUEDQFHVXFKDVĂ&#x20AC;UHZHQHHGWRHQsure that intensive timber harvests remain a component of our forest-management activities.â&#x20AC;? In regard to the slight increase in northern Wisconsin, Gary Zimmer, coordinating biologist for the Ruffed Grouse Society, points to the weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weather, especially during the broodrearing period in late May and early June, plays an important role in ruffed grouse numbers,â&#x20AC;? said Zimmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The slight increase shown in this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern region drumming counts, even in a downZDUGF\FOHFDQGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\EHWLHGWR¡V excellent brood-rearing conditions with its lengthy, dry, warm period in June. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather is not following the same pattern and it is doubtful fall grouse numbers will be comparable to last year in the north woods. However, even with lower populations, Wisconsin still has some of the best grouse hunting in the country,â&#x20AC;? Zimmer said. Complete survey results can be found by searching the DNR website for â&#x20AC;&#x153; wildlife reports.â&#x20AC;?

FREDERIC WATERWORKS, PWS ID 64903377 Water System Information

If you would like to know more about the information contained in this report, please contact Kenny Hackett at 715-327-8062. The Board meets the second Monday of each month at the Villge Hall at 7 p.m.

Health Information Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems disorders, some elderly and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people s hould seek advice about drinking water from their health-care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Envrionmental Protection Agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe drinking hotline (800-426-4791).

Source(s) of Water Source ID Source Depth (ft.) Status 2 Groundwater 248 Active 3 Groundwater 217 Active 4 Groundwater 298 Active 5 Groundwater 310 Active To obtain a summary of the source water assessment, please contact Ken Hackett at 715-327-8062.

Educational Information The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: 1. Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. 2. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occuring or result from urban storm-water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. 3. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm-water runoff and residential uses. 4. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm-water runoff and septic systems. 5. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health.

Number of Contaminants Required to be Tested

This table displays the number of contaminants that were required to be tested in the last five years. The CCR may contain up to five yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of water quality results. If a water system tests annually, or more frequently, the results fr om the most recent year are shown on the CCR. If testing is done less frequently, the results shown on the CCR are from the past five years.

A Falun family reunion by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer FALUN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Greetings and hugs were all around as old friends and neighbors gathered at the First Baptist Church of Falun for the fourth Falun community reunion. Stanley Miller welcomed folks who could only be described as the Falun family, given the obvious closeness they shared sitting together at the Saturday, June 22, gathering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come to celebrate a small, unincorporated town that has a great past and storied heroes,â&#x20AC;? said Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each of us has a personal story, woven into the tapestry that is Falun.â&#x20AC;? Miller recalled Falunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good old days when a lawnmowing job earned 50 cents an hour, which would buy

2 gallons of gas or 10 Snicker bars at Bill Larsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DX station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A small town by the standards of census, but a big town by the standard in productivity, values, and integrity,â&#x20AC;? noted Miller. Miller told of when some 144 years ago Swedish immigrants arrived in Falun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said it looked like home

to them.â&#x20AC;? And for those who came to this family reunion from near and far they, too, felt the same emotion, the feeling of being home.

Birding by Memory Lake by Priscilla Bauer Leader staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Standing with Memory Lake as a backdrop, members of the Wausau Bird Club posed for a group photo after stopping at the Birds in the Park event hosted by Crex wildlife biologist Steve Hoffman on Saturday, June 8. The bird-watchers, on their fourthannual campout weekend, were excited about their visit to Grantsburg and tour of the Crex Meadows Wildlife Area. Daryl Lindstrom from Rock Creek, Minn., gave a presentation on building and managing purple martin houses during the event, which was a celebration of International Migratory Birding Day in conjunction with the Bird City Initiative. Grantsburg was recently designated as

a bird city by Bird City Wisconsin, a cooperative of leading bird-conservation organizations in Wisconsin created in 2002. The cooperative partnership, called the Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative, is part of the National Bird Conservation Initiative. The goal of the coalition is to work in close coordination to deliver the full spectrum of bird conservation statewide, emphasizing voluntary stewardship. Bird City Wisconsin helps communities to implement sound bird-conservation practices offering high-visibility public recognition to those succeeding in doing so. - with information from birdcitywisconsin.org

West Denmark Family Camp begins June 30 WEST DENMARK - This year will be the 36th year for West Denmark Family Camp. It begins Sunday, June 30, and continues through Wednesday, July 3. In the tradition of Danish folk schools, you will have the chance to listen to and interact with engaging speakers, folk dance, sing, participate in skits, make crafts, share talents, eat good food, meet new friends and visit old friends over coffee and relax in the beautiful, peaceful setting of the West Denmark Lutheran Church. For West Denmark Lutheran Church, â&#x20AC;&#x153;familyâ&#x20AC;? describes the community you create. The participation of all generations, from infants to elders of varying backgrounds and with diverse insights, enriches the experience. All are welcome to join them as they work together, play together and learn from each other. On Sunday evening, June 30, you will be treated to the music of Swedish troubadour Joel Karlsson, a guitarist and singer from northern Sweden. He has a passion for traditional Swedish songs and is inspired by the seasons of life and the heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; submitted

WKLQNRQHGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWLRQRID good friend is that they can tell you what to do and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind. Or, maybe you mind a little, but you realize that what they Carrie Classon are telling you to do makes a lot of sense and you do it anyway. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lucky because I have at least one friend who can do that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and does, on a regular basis. I met my friend Lanni when I was less sure of myself than I had ever been in my life, which may be why she felt comfortable telling me what to do. Or maybe sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just bossier than me. Whatever the case, Lanni feels quite free to tell me what to do and, surprisingly, I cannot remember ever resenting her instructions. Lately, Lanni tells me that I should say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? The nice thing about Lanni is that she does not FRXFKKHULQVWUXFWLRQVLQDORWRIFDYHDWVRUTXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HUV She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;within reason,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;if it seems appropriate,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;in your heart.â&#x20AC;? No. She means when given a choice of saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;no,â&#x20AC;? I should just say â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? Like all of Lanniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice, this is exactly what I needed. Getting over a romance, feeling sorry for myself, falling into the all-too-easy trough of self-pity, something as simple as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? can make a tremendous difference. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of like the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Super Size Me,â&#x20AC;? except instead of saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? to massive amounts of saturated fat, I am saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? to all sorts of peculiar adventures. :RXOG,OLNHWRDWWHQGDĂ&#x20AC;OPIHVWLYDO"<HVGHĂ&#x20AC;QLWHO\,KDGQHYHUEHHQWRDĂ&#x20AC;OPIHVWLYDO,GLGQ¡WIHHO alone sitting in a dark theater watching short movies DQGGRFXPHQWDULHV7KHODVWĂ&#x20AC;OP,VDZZDVDERXW KHDOHUVIURPDOORYHUWKHZRUOGDQGWKHĂ&#x20AC;OPPDNHU was there.

Single motherhood

T

his one goes out to all the single ladies. The single-mom ladies, that is. For seven days, I had the privilege and the stupidity to willingly look after three little girls under the age of 5 while the parents were gone on vacation. For seven days, I got a taste of what single motherhood might look like and, let me tell you, it is tough, exhausting work. 7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWGD\,WKRXJKW´7KLVZLOOEH a piece of cake!â&#x20AC;? The girls play well together, the sweet-natured 22-month-old is rather independent and, after all, I am their auntie so they should listen to me pretty well. But as the week progressed, I noticed my bedtime went from 11 p.m. to 9 p.m. and my mood became crabbier the longer I went taking care of three kids on my own all day. Getting kids dressed is never fun, unless theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re babies and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk or pout about what you are putting on them. Dreams of dressing your daughWHULQFXWHPDWFKLQJRXWĂ&#x20AC;WVZLWKERZV quickly die once they develop their own attitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to wear this!â&#x20AC;? the 4-year-old declared.

Why Sherlock Holmes was wrong, and what you should do about it

I

n the story â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Study in Scarlet,â&#x20AC;? while introducing one of the most IDPRXVĂ&#x20AC;FWLRQDOFKDUDFWHUVRIDOOWLPH Arthur Conan Doyle wrote, and Sherlock Holmes said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I consider that a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other WKLQJVVRWKDWKHKDVDGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW\LQOD\ing his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it, there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before.

Finally I realL]HGWKHĂ&#x20AC;JKWZDVMXVWQRWZRUWKLW7KH six following days, she wore whatever the heck she wanted. And you know ZKDW",KDGDKDSS\NLG

I also realized, moms hardly eat or sleep. By the time I had all three kids at the table, with their food precisely cut XSZLWKVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FGLSSLQJVDXFHVDQG GULQNVĂ&#x20AC;OOHG,FRXOGĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\VLWGRZQ Right as I went to put the food in my mouth I heard, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could you cut this up EHWWHU"ÂľRU´&RXOG,KDYHDQDSNLQ"Âľ2U ´&DQ,KDYHPRUHFKLFNHQ"%HFDXVH, already ate it all.â&#x20AC;? By the time they were Ă&#x20AC;QLVKHG,KDGWRFOHDQXSWKHNLGLQWKH high chair and, before I knew it, I had only eaten a couple of bites of my food and we were already done with supper. One of the nights, there was a severe thunderstorm. When the kids wake up, they make sure to be so kind as to wake me up, too, so I was woken up around 10 times throughout the night and was out of bed by 5:30 in the morning. One point in the night, I woke up to a face inches from mine. It was the 6-yearROG´$EE\",KDGDEDGGUHDPDQG was woken up by the thunder. Right as I was falling back asleep, I thought I VDZDPRVTXLWR&DQ\RXFRPHJHWLW"Âľ I escorted her back to her bed, but saw no sign of the dreaded mosquito. An hour later, the 4-year-old showed up.

´$EE\",WKLQNPD\EH,KHDUGWKXQGHUÂľ â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think maybe youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right. Go to bed.â&#x20AC;? I escorted her back only to see her back DJDLQLQDQKRXU´$EE\",¡PVFDUHGRI WKHVWRUPÂľ,JDYHXSDQGĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\OHWKHU sleep in my bed with me. There were obviously fun and cute moments that melted my heart or made me laugh like baking cookies, dancing in the kitchen, puppet shows, jumping through sprinklers and cleaning up Popsicle drips on a hot, summer day. But by the last night, I was so exhausted I let the kids watch whatever movie they wanted and fed them popcorn, graham crackers and vegetables for supper. When some people see a single mother, I think they do one of two things: have pity for them or judge them. After this week, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to realize that, regardless of how a woman came into single motherhood, people should extend warmth and help, or a free couple of hours of baby-sitting or anything other than judging eyes, because it is one of the hardest and most demanding jobs a woman could ever do.

It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.â&#x20AC;? Chris Wondra The brain attic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great image â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but completely wrong. This is not at all how the brain operates. In fact, working memory functions quite the opposite. The more you know, the more you can know. A better metaphor for how the brain actually works might be a web in which every piece of information creates a new link, connection or pathway, to every other connection. The more links you have, the easier it is to access stored data and attach new information â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from which you can then more easily attach more information â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so on, and so on. Assuming we agree that the more we know the better, and that continual learning is a good thing, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only

one question remaining: What is the EHVWZD\WRDGGQHZOLQNV"8QOLNH computers, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t simply plug in and download new information, yet. So ZKDWWKHQLVWKHPRVWHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQWZD\WR GRWKLV"7UDYHOLVJRRG,QFUHDVLQJVRcial networks and meeting new people helps. Taking classes and getting advanced degrees doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt. But nothing beats reading. Nothing. Beyond cheaply transporting you to new places, meeting new people, and expanding your mind with new perspectives, reading does for the brain what exercise does for the body. It is the ultimate neurological workout. 7KHSK\VLRORJLFDOEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVRIUHDGLQJ are similar to those of meditation. It reduces stress, deepens sleep and reduces memory loss. Plus there are all the people, places, ideas and images to which reading can expose us that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often practical, or possible, given the constraints of time, space and money. Also, reading will make you smarter than a great many people. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because 33 percent of high school graduates never read another book after graduation. Think additional education Ă&#x20AC;[HVWKDW"1RSH)RUW\WZRSHUFHQWRI college graduates never pick up another book either.

Which is too bad, really, because the number one predictor of occupational success is a robust vocabulary. And after fourth grade, most vocabulary gains are developed through reading. Reading just 30 minutes a day for a year exposes you to two million words. Conservatively speaking, 100,000 (5 percent) of those would be new. Just think of all those new links in your â&#x20AC;&#x153;brain-webâ&#x20AC;?! 1RWWRPHQWLRQKRZPXFKPRUHGLIĂ&#x20AC;cult it will be for someone to manipulate you - personally, professionally, commercially or politically. Helen Keller said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Language sets thoughts astir and keeps us in the intellectual company of man.â&#x20AC;? Reading enriches our minds and expands our possibilities. With all due respect to Sherlock Holmes, if our brains are like little attics, they do indeed have, â&#x20AC;&#x153; ... elastic walls and can distend to any extent.â&#x20AC;? Depend on it.

Horse pasture walk to take place at Happy Hollow Stables TURTLE LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The NW Wisconsin Graziers Network and the UW-Extension invite you to a unique multienterprise horse pasture walk at the Erin and Steve Osero farm on Saturday morning, July 13, from 10 a.m.-noon. Happy Hollow Stables and farm are located at 1614 CTH D, north of Hwy. 8, about 10 miles west of Turtle Lake. The pasture walk will feature rotational grazing of horses, roundbale feeding with hay nets, pastured poultry, grass-fed beef, an organic garden for family use, boarding stable and a riding instruction facility with trails. The farm contains 50 acres of gen-

tly rolling lighter soils including grassy Ă&#x20AC;HOGVZRRGVZHWODQGVDQGDVPDOOODNH Riding trails meander throughout the farm and present training opportunities for both horse and rider. Since droughty soils present challenges in summer months, Erin has been building organic matter by rotating bale-feeding areas. Erin rotationally grazes 15 horses of various breeds, including quarter horse, paint, Ponies of The Americas for children and a mule on about 25 acres consisting of 15 paddocks with lanes and electric fences. Water is provided in a common sacri-

Ă&#x20AC;FHSDGGRFNZKHUHJURXSVFDQEHKHOGRII RI JUDVV 3DVWXUHVDUHURWDWHGDERXWĂ&#x20AC;YH times during grazing season and clipped with a rotary mower. A recent addition to the winter-feeding strategy has been hay nets that reduce waste to less than 5 percent and seem to also entertain the horses. Other enterprises include organic pastured broiler production during summer months along with hatching of chicks, ducks and geese for local markets. A large organic garden and orchard contain the pastured poultry area and provide vegetables for family use. A new enterprise this year is grass-fed beef production

with two Angus steers being rotationally grazed separate from the horse pastures. Erin also provides riding instruction for a wide range of equestrians and basic WUDLQLQJIRU\RXQJKRUVHVRUĂ&#x20AC;QHWXQLQJ for older horses. To get to the farm, travel seven miles west of Turtle Lake on Hwy. 8 to Range. Take CTH D north three miles. Watch for the signs.

Finding family: A Norwegian searching for long-lost American relatives LUCK - At 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30, at the Luck Museum/Library, Sigmund Holt, a retired policeman from Oslo, Norway, will present his search for his American cousins, sponsored by the Luck Historical Society and the Polk County Genealogical Society. Sigmundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandmother, Hildur, was raised in the Halden area of Norway by his supposed great-grandmother Caroline as her own child. But there were family secrets and rumors. Was Hildur actually the child of Carolineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Maria, who KDGEHHQVHQWRIIWR$PHULFDLQWKHV" Holt began to sleuth out the old records and artifacts and pictures. He interviewed family members who were willing to talk, and convinced others to reveal what they suspected or knew. Eventually, he laid bare a dramatic love story between Carolineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband and Maria, and the story of his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth. Following Mariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s travel to the Town of Laketown, Holt located two of her grandchildren,

Walt Wedin of Minneapolis, and Carolyn Wedin, returned to her roots in Burnett County, outside of Frederic. Now Sigmund comes to America to visit these cousins and their children and grandchildren and tell the story of his fruitful search. In October 2012, cousins Carolyn Wedin and Sigmund Holt toured the rural sites, mostly in Norway, some in Sweden, of Hildurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long life. With a geological hammer, Holt broke off two bits of the rock she loved to sit on. Wedin brought one piece back with her to Wisconsin; Holt will arrive in late June with the other.

Books will be available for purchase: L.J.

The four 4-H clubs from Burnett County, Jolly Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Wood Creek, Orange and Wood River Beavers, along with the West Sweden club from Polk County, hosted fun activities for kids of all ages. Events put on by the 4-H groups included free face painting, crafts, games, tattoos and stickers. Face painting was the biggest hit. While families waited to become a living canvas, they played beanbag toss and/or catch with recycled milk jugs.

Managed haying of CRP acreage available after Aug. 1 to help with feed losses

SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Evie Moore, county executive director of the Washburn/BurQHWW&RXQW\)DUP6HUYLFH$JHQF\RIĂ&#x20AC;FH announced that participants enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program may request to hay certain acreage enrolled in CRP. The earliest date that any CRP acreage can be hayed is Friday, Aug. 2. Managed grazing of acreage is also allowed under certain rules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many farmers have suffered losses of feed due to the weather,â&#x20AC;? said Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an opportunity for producers to harvest CRP acreage.â&#x20AC;? The hay harvested from CRP may be used by the participant or sold or given to any other individual. In order for the acreage to be hayed, CRP SDUWLFLSDQWVPXVWYLVLWWKH)6$RIĂ&#x20AC;FHWR sign a request to hay the acreage and to amend their CRP conservation plans.

Not all CRP acreage is eligible to be hayed. Any acreage that has been seeded to a cover within the last 12 months, any acreage planted to trees or shrubs, any acreage within 120 feet of a stream or other permanent water body, any acreage HQUROOHGDVDĂ&#x20AC;OWHUVWULSRUDQ\RWKHU&53 practice prohibited by policy from being hayed is ineligible for haying. In addition, the haying of CRP acreage is only allowed once every three years; accordingly acreage that was hayed in 2011 or 2012 is not eligible for haying this year. Producers who hay CRP acreage will receive a 25-percent reduction in their annual CRP payment on the actual acres that are hayed and must agree to revise the ending date of the nesting season to Thursday, Aug. 1, for all practices on their contract.

Follow the Leader

Under the managed haying provisions, producers are allowed to take one cutting of hay from Aug. 2 through Sept. 15, and any bales that would be stored on the acreage must be removed by Monday, Sept. 30. &53 SDUWLFLSDQWV PXVW Ă&#x20AC;UVW YLVLW WKH )6$ RIĂ&#x20AC;FH WR VLJQ WKH KD\LQJ UHTXHVW â&#x20AC;&#x153;Haying cannot begin until the participant receives written approval in the IRUPRIDOHWWHUIURPRXURIĂ&#x20AC;FHÂľ0RRUH added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Producers who hay acreage withRXWĂ&#x20AC;UVWREWDLQLQJDSSURYDOIURPWKH)6$ RIĂ&#x20AC;FH ZLOO EH VXEMHFW WR SD\PHQW UHGXFtions and/or contract termination.â&#x20AC;?

In 2010, Osceolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church started to change all that, beginning with a meeting of a few interested parents and members. Grace was no beginner in Christian education. It has successfully provided the Grace for Kids Preschool to this area for the past 10 years. The idea of a Christian Lutheran school for interested parents and children in western Polk County grew, in addition to Grace, to include members of Redeemer and St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Evangelical Lutheran churches in St. Croix Falls and Centuria, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in East Farmington and Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Osceola.

Wayne Landreth Breeden Wayne was born in Clearwater, Fla., on Oct. 27, 1936, to Landreth and Edna Breeden. He attended grade school and high school in Clearwater and graduated from Clearwater High in 1954. Shortly after graduation he joined the U.S. Marine Corps serving three years, two of which were spent in the Philippines. In 1957, he and Marlys Anderson were married in Clearwater and lived there for two years at which time Wayne worked for the General Telephone Co. In 1959, he and Marlys moved to St. Croix Falls, where he worked for 1RUWKHUQ6WDWHV3RZHU&R7KDWMREODVWHGEULHĂ \DQGKH went to work for the Chisago City Telephone Co. In the early 1960s, he and Marlys purchased the Falls CafĂŠ in Taylors Falls, Minn., which they operated for 22 years. During that time, Wayne was active in the Taylors Falls Commercial Club and was instrumental in the charter of the Taylors Falls Lions Club serving as president for several terms. He remained active in the Lions Club until his death. In 1971 another restaurant was purchased; The Northwoods in Barnum, Minn. Wayne and family moved to Barnum and lived there for two years before returning to live in Taylors Falls, at which time a complete remodeling of the Falls CafĂŠ was done and the restaurant was renamed The Chisago House. In the late 1970s, Wayne and Marlys, with partners, remodeled the historic livery building on Main Street making it into a mall which was then named The Livery Mall. After selling The Chisago House in the 1980s, Wayne went into partnership with Mike Hoover, forming Interstate Builders. They built many houses in the area. Wayne retired in early 2000 and then kept busy doing odd jobs until the last few years, when his health was not the best.

Their singing styles and voices differed greatly, as did their choice of songs - from pop to rock, classical to country. All sounded good, and no doubt many of the losers gained a large enough following to advance their singing aspirations. We all are faced with other types of voices that beckon us. We â&#x20AC;&#x153;voteâ&#x20AC;? for favorite hairstyles, clothing fads and home dĂŠcor. We tend to try new foods, endorse new politicians and follow new religious fads. In fact, every day brings something or someone new that draws us to follow. Like those who listened to the singers on the TV competition, we also vote on someone or something that

Impending move could be upsetting to kids Q: Due to a job transfer, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving to a different region of the country. How can we help our kids adjust to a cross-country move? Jim: First, realize that this can be a tough transition for kids. According to Parents Magazine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toddlers will mourn the loss of their room and the house theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always lived in. School-age children will mourn the loss of their friends and their school. Teenagers, along with mourning all of the above, are likely to feel anger at their parents for a major life change that is beyond their control.â&#x20AC;? With all of this mourning going on, you should allow your kids time to grieve. So be patient with them. Life will eventually feel normal for them again, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen overnight. In her book â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the Boxes Are Unpacked,â&#x20AC;? author Susan Miller suggests several ways of helping your kids make the transition as smoothly as possible. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play down the importance of the changes theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going through. Telling them that â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything will work outâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the best approach. â&#x20AC;˘ Encourage them to express their fears and concerns.

to verbalize their thoughts, help them. If you have teenagers, ask them to express their feelings. â&#x20AC;˘ Let them do the talking and make up your mind to be a good listener. â&#x20AC;˘ Whatever you do, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feelings. That will only increase their sense of isolation and frustration. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel that you need to shoulder all the blame or justify the move to your kids. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not up to you to solve all their problems. â&#x20AC;˘ Remember that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s normal for some children to experience a temporary regression in behavior after a move. If you have school-aged kids, you may even see a drop in their grades. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic. Give them the time and space they need in order to adjust to the new situation. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Q: My daughter is really starting to get into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;emoâ&#x20AC;? style of clothing.

looks, sounds or acts differently. Voices clamor for our attention until sometimes we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to respond, how to vote. If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bored, disillusioned or anxious about our present situation, it becomes easy to listen to other voices â&#x20AC;&#x201C; voices that try to make us believe our lives will improve, become easier or bring more fun and satisfaction. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice, however, is trustworthy. Jesus said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am the good shepherd; and I know my sheep and am known by P\RZQÂŤDQG,OD\GRZQP\OLIHIRU the sheep. Other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear my voice ... â&#x20AC;? (John 10:14-16) In these verses, Jesus refers to you and me. After the Jewish leaders rejected

him, he told them he accepted the Gentiles into his sheepfold. As our shepherd, Jesus guides us through his voice. He gives us safety, tends to our need and loves us as his own. As his sheep, we obediently follow his perfect path, listening to his voice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his perfect voice of love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so we can dwell with him. Many voices call to us, tempt us to stray from his path. Only when we listen to him through his word and Spirit ZLOOZHĂ&#x20AC;QGLQQHUSHDFHMR\DQGUHVW Lord, instill in us a compelling desire to hear your voice clearly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even when other voices clamor to overpower us. In Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name, amen. Mrs. Bair may be reached at sallybair@ gmail.com.
