Cutting wood is for the dogs ... and many others

,QWHUIDLWK&DUHJLYHUSURMHFW KHOSVPDNHZD\IRUQHZ GRJSDUNLQ:HEVWHU

by Sherill Summer Leader staff writer WEBSTER- The north woods is a great SODFH IRU VRPH KREELHV ² KXQWLQJ Ă&#x20AC;VKing and snowmobiling. If cutting wood sounds like a great way to spend a day, especially when spending it with likeminded friends, the north woods is great for this hobby because there is no end to the trees. A total of 23 wood-cutting enthusiasts, loosely connected to an arborist socialmedia site, were at the Webster Dog Park Saturday, Oct. 5. They cleared land for a handicapped-accessible parking lot and a PXOWLDELOLW\SOD\JURXQGWKDW'LYHUVLĂ&#x20AC;HG Services Incorporated in Siren is adding to the park. Land was also cleared for a parking lot near the main gates to the dog park. It was a win-win affair, because all of the wood cut was donated to Interfaith Caregivers of Burnett County, which has a program of donating wood to area residents who need wood for heating. The efforts to add handicapped-accessible amenities to the dog park also won because money from a $55,000 Bremer grant would not have to go toward clearing the land. 7KLV ZDV QRW WKH Ă&#x20AC;UVW \HDU WKH DUERUists have helped Interfaith Caregivers put up wood for the needy. Last year, people from the same group traveled from Missouri and Iowa to help with the project. Not only did that group travel a long way, they drove through a snowstorm on the way up and another snowstorm on the trip home. This year, the weather was balmy, and the farthest anyone traveled was from Appleton. Still, the group was dedicated to clearing the areas of the dog park safely and quickly. The Interfaith Caregivers program has gotten big over the decade or so that it has been in existence. Last year, 82 families received wood. Denny Blodgett, of Interfaith Caregivers, explained that many of the families last winter received a second helping of wood toward spring until the wood was gone, all of it appreciated in a winter that many thought would never end. -'*ORYHUIURP*UDQWVEXUJĂ&#x20AC;JXUHVKH KDV KHOSHG IRU WKH ODVW Ă&#x20AC;YH RU VL[ \HDUV and was happy to help again. Todd Paulson of Trade Lake gave an explanation why they keep coming back, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Helping with this makes you feel good when you go to bed at night.â&#x20AC;? 7KHJURXSZDVDOVRKDYLQJIXQ Boyd Dosch of Dresser was one of the arborists at the dog park. He admitted that a new chain saw could earn bragging rights among the rest of the group, especially after everyone else has tried it out. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, if they were not helping a worthy cause, such as helping Interfaith Caregivers, they might be meeting up to see who could cut wood the fastest in one of their infamous redneck saw races.

Photos by Sherill Summer unless noted otherwise For those who are not familiar with Interfaith Caregivers of Burnett Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood program, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intended to help individuals who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut and split wood themselves because of health issues or because they are elderly. Sometimes nearby family can help out but, if not, Interfaith &DUHJLYHUVĂ&#x20AC;OOVWKHQHHG6RFLDOVHUYLFHV XVXDOO\QRWLĂ&#x20AC;HV,QWHUIDLWK&DUHJLYHUVRID need in the community, although referrals directly to Interfaith Caregivers will be considered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a big heart; very few are turned away,â&#x20AC;? sums up Blodgett.

Once the arborists and Interfaith Caregivers have cut and removed the trees at the dog park, improvements to the general parking area, a new paved, handicapped parking area and a paved path around the southern edge of the fence, can be added yet this fall. The handicapped-accessible trail and playground will be located outside the fenced-in dog park. Taylor Paving will be creating an 8-foot-wide trail that will extend along the southern boundary of the dog park where the terrain is relatively Ă DW  7KH KDQGLFDSSHGDFFHVVLEOH SDUN-

ing lot will be adjacent to the paved trail. There will also be a limestone trail around the north side of the dog park. This portion of the trail will join the Gandy Dancer Trail that runs west of the property. The general parking lot will also be improved this fall.

3DUNFRXOGEHDGUDZ DSI Director Joe Wacek is spearheading the effort to add a paved trail, raised gardens and a multiability playground to the dog park. He thinks such a park can draw visitors from the surrounding area and the Twin Cities and Twin Ports areas because there are not many parks with a handicapped theme anywhere near. He was awarded a $55,000 Bremer grant earlier this year to fund the project. Handicapped accessible brings to mind places where wheelchairs and walkers can go, but Wacek wants to make the trail and multiability playground accessible to individuals with low vision, inviting to individuals with autism and ADHD as well as people needing wheelchairs and walkers for mobility. He also wants plenty of â&#x20AC;&#x153;regularâ&#x20AC;? equipment, or equipment that is dual purpose, in the playground. He hopes the additions to the dog park will be inviting to a large segment of the population. Nearly half of the money from the Bremer grant will go toward equipment, but the equipment will probably not be installed until spring. Wasek has found suitable equipment at Landscape Structures out of DeLano, Minn. For example, there are swings that are wheelchair accessible, an improved version of the classic seesaw that provides safety features for users of all abilities and is wheelchair accessible. There is also a lever-action backhoe scoop often seen at playgrounds, but the version at Landscape Structures can either be used when standing or in a wheelchair. Wacek also wants to add stopping sta6HHDogsSDJH

will fund future phases at the dog park. He is also excited that the Rotary has become a major sponsor of the multiaccess playground and other additions to the dog park. As with most projects of this

I

think that doubt has gotten a bad rap. I have spent most of my life trying to banish doubt. Doubt shows up when I am not sure if I have what it takes, or wonder Carrie Classon if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing the right thing, or question my deeply held beliefs. My reaction to doubt has been to send it scurrying, or worry that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m weak for entertaining it or scold myself for allowing it in the door. But what if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it, or Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not doing the right thing or I am just wrong? Even writing this makes me a little nervous. It Ă LHVLQWKHIDFHRIWKHDGYLFH,UHDGDERXWSURFHHGLQJ without fear, banishing doubt, chasing that dream without reservation. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wondering if sometimes I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a reservation or two. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wondering what, really, is the harm in doubt. I remember when we were in our 20s, my former brother-in-law, Jake, was working for a television station in a small city. He was given an assignment to interview a woman who claimed to be from Venus. She had just returned from working with â&#x20AC;&#x153;scientists in the northâ&#x20AC;? and everyone thought this was very funny. Jake went off to interview Lady Venus, and I am not sure exactly what happened. All I know is that, when he returned from his interview, the jokes about the scientists in the north were a lot less funny. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to talk about it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that he believed she was from Venus. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just saying that she was an intelligent and convincing woman and, at least for a few minutes, I think he might have experienced a little ... doubt. And this is the thing about doubt. If I let it, it will open my mind to possibilities that I would normally chase away before I got a chance to even look at

them. Some of these possibilities are simply nonsense. But some doubts might get me thinking in ways that I never would have thought if I was always steadfastly sure of myself. I have banished doubt in relationships when a healthy dose of doubt might have been a very good thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is this person really looking out for my best interests? Is this the way I want to live my life?â&#x20AC;? These are hard questions to ask. The implication is clear: I might have been wrong. I might have made a mistake. I might still be making a mistake. Doubting myself, doubting my choices, doubting my actions opens a door that lets fresh air in, and also offers an escape. Maybe I decide I am exactly where I should be. Maybe I see that I am deceiving myself. Maybe I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. Doubt gives me a new way to look at my life. Doubt makes me humble. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been letting doubt in the door lately. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been inviting it to stay. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been offering it a cup of coffee. I learn a lot when it is visiting and, once I get XVHGWRWKHGLVFRPIRUW,Ă&#x20AC;QGLWLVQRWVRIULJKWHQLQJ after all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been misunderstood,â&#x20AC;? doubt tells me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been portrayed as the enemy, as something from the outside when, really, I am your wisest self, just trying to get your attention.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hmmm,â&#x20AC;? I say, looking into my coffee cup. I want to be sympathetic. I want to become doubtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend so I try to listen patiently. But secretly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m checking my watch and hoping doubt doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hang around too long. Till next time, â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Carrie

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month POLK COUNTY - October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since the program began in 1985, mammography rates have more than doubled for women age 50 and older and breast cancer deaths have declined. Since early detection of breast cancer can prevent deaths, the Polk County Health Department encourages women to consider the following strategies. Know your risk by learning about your family health history and talking to your health-care provider about your personal risk of breast cancer. Ask your health-care provider which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk for breast cancer.

Bare hunting

Know what is normal for you and see your healthcare provider right away if you notice any of these breast changes: lump, hard knot or thickening, swelling, warmth, redness or darkening; change in the size or shape of the breast; dimpling or puckering of the skin; itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple; pulling in of your nipple or other parts of the breast; nipple discharge that starts suddenly; or new pain in one spot that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away. Make healthy lifestyle choices such as maintaining a healthy weight, adding exercise into your daily routine and limiting alcohol.

I

love food. I love the chemistry of cooking and baking, I love the aromas, the sounds, the art and presentation, and, of course, the taste and pleasure of eating food. Cooking food, for me, is like gardening or creating art for some. The physicality of it and the pride you can take in the creation of it is something that brings me back to cooking over and over again. After the kitchen is a mess, my cheeks are rosy IURPH[HUWLRQDQGP\DSURQKDVĂ RXU RUVSODWWHUVRQLW,FDQORRNDWWKHĂ&#x20AC;Qished product and proudly say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I created this from scratch with my own two hands.â&#x20AC;?

Music: A metaphor for forgiveness

A

ll right, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like this: So-and-so did you wrong. Really messed up, right? And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrible. It really is. But time passes, and the pain and ick of it sort of wear down to a dull edge. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still uncomfortable, maybe, even now. But life goes on, right? Every once in awhile though, something happens and it all comes rushing back - along with all the pain and resentment. People say let it go, move on, forgive, be happy, build a bridge and get over it, life is short. They troop out all the old clichĂŠs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like holding on to a burning ember, they say. Holding on to resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die, they tell you. And you know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right. Still, you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to help yourself. You keep picking at the scab. You search for answers. You hunt for reasons. You try to make sense of it all. Inevitably, you peel the scab off. Blood seeps again from the old wound, collects into a drop, and rolls. Or maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tear.

while back I decided to build up my ranching reputation by improving my equipment. I purchased a 1997 crew cab GMC one-ton diesel with only 254,000 miles on it. I traded in a ÂśRQHWRQĂ DWEHG)ZLWKDZLQFK plus $4,000. I asked the used car dealer if I could keep the winch. He said it was WKHRQO\UHDVRQKHWRRNWKHĂ DWEHGLQ trade! Cal told me his neighbor, Jerry, came by to show him his new purchase. A brand-spankinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new 3/4-ton four-wheel drive with payments of $600 a month RYHUĂ&#x20AC;YH\HDUVÂŤEXWZKDW-HUU\ZDV most proud of was a 20-ton winch with 50 feet of cable mounted on the front

bumper. Jerry talked Cal into goinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to check cows with him. It was a beautiful fall day in the Palouse country of Idaho. Miles of yellow pasture and wheat stubble, not a tree in sight. As they motored through the herd they noticed a cow with a lump on her jaw, one big teat and what looked like a bundle of wire around one foot. Together these cowmen decided to catch her, tie her to a fence to remove the wire and maybe lance the lump. 7KH\ULĂ HGWKURXJKKLVWRROER[DQG

Food is one of the few things in this world that can cross boundaries. Recipes have been passed down from generations to generations. Families have secret recipes, tips and traditions with food. It can represent a region, a country, a town or a city, or even a person. If I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel to Italy tomorrow or WKHQH[WGD\,FDQĂ&#x20AC;QGDQGFUHDWHDQ authentic Italian dish that will make me feel like I am eating in the town square of small-town Pergine, Italia. I can create a dish from Julia Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cookbook that when I close my eyes will make me feel as if I am in Paris or Marseille, France. Food can remind us of a holiGD\RIDVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FPRPHQWLQRXUSDVWRU of a loved one that has passed away. Food passes the barriers of time, connecting us with passed memories by the smells, the tastes, and the textures. Though my grandmother passed away when I was 14, Swedish tea rings and lefse will always remind me of her. Sauerkraut and lumpy mashed potatoes

will always remind me of my Grandma and Grandpa Ingalls. Homemade tortillas, authentic refried beans and grilled cactus will always remind me of one of the trips I took to Mexico when we visited a local family. Squid fried rice will forever remind me of the time I spent two weeks in Thailand, where the old grandmother cooked us this for breakfast. She wore bright red lipstick and woke up at 5 a.m. every day to do â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ha-sip!â&#x20AC;? (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50 in Thai) different exercises and stretches. Food exceeds many barriers and walls and somehow brings people together to the same common table to share in something that makes us equals. Perhaps this is why I love cooking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to pass down legacies, traditions and recipes; to bring people and families together; to remind myself and others why we love the taste of really good food; and to create something that makes people happy and puts smiles on their faces.

by the way, all the good ones. The beat goes on. So you let it, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re jamming, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kind of excited because your solo is coming up. And the only note that matters is the one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing right now. Not the last one. Not the next one. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no time to look back and no time to look ahead much. The beat urges you on. The QRWHVĂ \IURP\RXUĂ&#x20AC;QJHUVIURP\RXU guitar or keyboard or trumpet - from your heart, from your soul. And then theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gone. Each note rings for only a moment. Then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over. History. Memory. Such is the nature of music. Such is the nature of life. Each note, each PRPHQWĂ&#x20AC;OOVLQWKHUK\WKPDQGWKH rhythm pounds ahead. Nothing is carried with it. Everything is left behind. And the fun is only whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so good that way - music and life. Now, if Dingle Fritz continues to play the wrong notes, eventually youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to make a decision. Maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not taking this as seriously as you are. Maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not willing to do what it takes to be able to play with you, at your level. Maybe he just wants to

mess around. But a musician canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheat forever. Bad habits always catch up. Maybe Dingle Fritz is happy playing the small gigs: the cramped and steamy bars with the broken urinals and a mix of smoke and sweat always everywhere, where quality is less important. You know the ones. Maybe you, on the other hand, are looking for something with a little more class. Or maybe you just want to play really good music. Whatever the reason, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, you may have to cut him. Go your separate ways. But if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one note, or one bad gig even - what are you going to do? We can all make mistakes. We can all have an off night every once in awhile. Right? So the rest of the members of the band arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as talented as you - not as â&#x20AC;&#x153;goodâ&#x20AC;? as you - what are you going to do?

found an old rope and a halter with no lead rope. Cal easily caught the cooperative cow and haltered her. Before he could get the rope attached, Jerry suggested that he hook the winch to the halter. It was just an excuse to play with his new toy. They pulled 20 feet of cable from the winch and hooked it to the halter. Jerry stood by the winch with the remote in his hand like Theodore Roosevelt in a EDFNKRHDERXWWRWDNHKLVĂ&#x20AC;UVWELWHRXW RIWKH3DQDPD&DQDOÂŤPRGHUQPDQ versus Mother Nature. The cow immediately pulled back and went ballistic! She raced to the right till the cable tightened and swung her around the pickup behind the right rear wheel well! She managed to take Jerry out with the cable, broke off the head-

light, tore off the side mirror and bashed in the rear fender. As soon as Jerry arose, the cow reversed course and made the left side symmetrical! Jerry climbed on the hood, remote in hand, as the cow continued to swing back and forth, pendulous, from one side to the other. By the time she was reeled in tight to the winch, the pickup looked like it KDGEHHQLQDGRJĂ&#x20AC;JKWZLWKDVZLWFKHQgine! One taillight survived, unlike both headlights, side panels, mirrors and the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side window. They removed the tangle of wire and wisely decided to cut the nylon halter off with a pocketknife rather than give her some slack and try to unbuckle it. Good thinking, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say.

The Friends of the St. Croix Falls Library was established in 2007. Currently over 35 community members contribute annually to the Friends. Many of these contributors actively volunteer their time to assist the group with fundraising efforts that include the annual used book sale held every summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The library has always played such an important role in my life and in my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life,â&#x20AC;? said Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; President Peggy Farmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly enjoy being able to give something back â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and being an active member of this JURXSLVIXQÂľ2WKHURIĂ&#x20AC;FHUVRIWKHRUJDQL]DWLRQDUH/Rreen Morrell, vice president, Dar Anderson, treasurer, and Jules Nelson Hill, treasurer.

This is seen through our motto, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to make the best betterâ&#x20AC;? and our slogan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;learning by doing.â&#x20AC;? These goals are reached through our use of each H on the four-leaf clover. The Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stand for head, heart, hands and health. As the 4-H pledge explains, the head sums up each personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to learning, the heart promotes compassion and trust, the H for hands encourages volunteering, and the H of health inspires dedication to living better physically and mentally. Each H is essential to becoming a quality, creative, productive and energized 4-Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er. Every-

Festival Theatre features Ethan Bjelland

)HVWLYDO

Festival Theatre highlights Ethan Bjelland as the featured guest artist this week. Bjelland is a 2013 graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn. Festival Theatre has had a recent history of connections with Gustavus students, alumni and even professors. Actors Robert Gardner, Christian DeMarais and Kimberly Braun have graced the stage at Festival. Bjelland grew up in Decorah, Iowa, and fell in love with the theater at a young age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember playing Johnny Appleseed in a local parks and rec acting class when I was 5 years old,â&#x20AC;? said Bjelland. He continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that I was way too cool for school. I got to wear Oshkosh Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;gosh and walk around with a pan on my head.â&#x20AC;? From there Bjelland decided to direct his friends in nobudget backyard productions, but when KHĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\KDGWKHFKDQFHWRDXGLWLRQIRU a community theater production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sound of Music,â&#x20AC;? he experienced an unexpected bout of stage fright. He cried and was taken home. That still did not stop the young actor. Eventually, Bjelland found his way back to the stage

)HDWXUHG $UWLVWV and, in 2013, graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College. Bjelland completed his studies with a degree in theater, with honors, and Scandinavian studies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I originally went to school to study elementary music education, but fell in love with a type of community-engaged theater for social justice called Theatre of the Oppressed,â&#x20AC;? explained Bjelland, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still have a love of all things having to do with peace and performance theory.â&#x20AC;? Last year, Bjelland spent a season with the Commonweal Theatre Company in Lanesboro, Minn., as an apprentice artist-administrator. He worked in all areas of the theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organization including marketing, development and production. While there, Bjelland appeared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Drawer Boyâ&#x20AC;? as Miles and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Philadelphia Storyâ&#x20AC;? as Thomas. Bjelland was also given an opportunity to translate, adapt and scenic design August Strindbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miss Julieâ&#x20AC;? for a run during the Commonwealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Ibsen

Festival commemorating the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, a contemporary of Strindberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ethan is a true team player,â&#x20AC;? described Jaclyn Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is kind, helpful and is always ready to reach out (WKDQ%MHOODQG and be there for his teammates. This translates directly to the stage. In addition to being there for his cast mates, Ethan is there for the audience, drawing them in, taking them on a journey, encouraging them to relax into the story they are seeing unfold,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. In addition to being in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy For You,â&#x20AC;? directed by Johnson, Bjelland also appeared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Foreignerâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Untoward Generation.â&#x20AC;? Bjelland is currently appearing in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Festival Live Radio Hour Presents: Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horsemanâ&#x20AC;? as

Ichabod and also as Tony, a radio perVRQDOLW\´:KHQZHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVWDUWHGZRUNing with the kids, I expected to be more of a teacher, but I found quickly that these youth actors are incredibly talented,â&#x20AC;? Bjelland says of the youth cast made up of two separate groups of local youth actors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to go right into devising because of their experiences here at Festival and their inherent knowledge of this art.â&#x20AC;?

Festival Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original adaptation of the famous Washington Irving tale features two youth casts paired with a SURIHVVLRQDO FRPSDQ\ RI Ă&#x20AC;YH JXHVW DUWists. The youth share the roles of the Darling family to cover the 17 public performances and the school matinees held during the week. These actors miss some school time, but the learning does not stop. Combining numerous theater arts techniques, the young actors are seeing and using conventions such as mime, stylized movement and ensemble work. They are weaving stories together to creDWHDUHIUHVKLQJĂ&#x20AC;QDOSURGXFW The play begins with the radio studio on one side of the stage, where actors are presenting the radio play of Washington Irvingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman,â&#x20AC;? and the living room of the Darling family on the other side, where the children are attentively listening to the story coming through their radio.

When asked how her roles have changed in the years since then, Gallagher says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a very small role in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wind in the Willows,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; as the weasel cook. Since then I have gotten larger roles, telling more of the story, and also playing older kids and adults, because I am so tall.â&#x20AC;? Now standing at 5 feet, 9 inches, Brita played the schoolteacher and Mrs. Harper in the 2012 production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Trial of Tom Sawyerâ&#x20AC;? and plays the oldest sibling in the Darling family. Her younger brother, Liam, is also in the blue cast, as Benny Darling. With every production comes the opportunity to use different techniques in theater arts. Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original adaptation of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Headless Horsemanâ&#x20AC;? legend includes some outstanding mime by the professional cast members, done as the Darling children narrate their own versions of how the story ends.

Local artist has artist residency in Canada

CUSHING - Textile artist and author Jean M. Judd, of Cushing, spent two weeks in August at the Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, as their artist in residence. She was one of six selected artists for this unique opportunity. Quetico Provincial Park is celebrating its 100th year as a provincial park in 2013. Judd had the opportunity to spend 13 days in the interior of the park, Aug. 18-31, photographing the unique experience and getting inspiration for a textile artwork that would become part of the Quetico permanent art collection. The last day of her residency she gave a formal presentation to visitors to the park at the Dawson Trail ranger station pavilion as well as area residents from the surrounding towns, explaining her history as an artist as well as her rust pigmentation process used in her textile artworks.

´7KLVZDVP\Ă&#x20AC;UVWDUWLVWUHVLGHQF\DQG what a beautiful place to visit for this experience! The park has recently built an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio for the visiting artists to use if they prefer to stay at the Dawson Trail ranger station instead of traveling by canoe into the interior of the park.

SMC celebrates World Habitat Day by Kaye Herranen VISTA with Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity AMERY - Monday, Oct. 7, was World Habitat Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a day designated by the United Nations to raise awareness about VXIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW VKHOWHU DQG WR UHPLQG SHRSOH that they are responsible for the habitat of future generations. Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity, which serves Polk, Washburn, Burnett and Rusk counties, took part in this truly global celebration. About one in four people live in conditions that harm their health, safety, prosperity and opportunities. Adequate shelter is a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. SMC Ltd., a manufacturing company with a branch in Amery, sponsored a World Habitat build day at the LeTourneau familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Amery. SMC was founded in 1988 right here in Wisconsin, and although they now have global operations, their headquarters remain in Somerset. SMC specializes in manufacturing medical and pharmaceutical devices. Seven SMC employees came to volunteer and worked at the build for the entire day. The group did mainly outdoor work on the house, including caulking and taping the windows. These volunteers commented that their management had been looking for teambuilding activities, as well as ways to give back to the community. They had tried HPSOR\HHHYHQWVOLNHJROĂ&#x20AC;QJLQWKHSDVW but working with Habitat seemed like a great way to team-build and give back to the community at the same time. Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity was also excited to have a local business volunteer, as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve struggled to get volunteers to the Amery build on weekdays. Eric Kube, executive director of Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity noted that Polk-Burnett Electric employees also volunteered at the Luck build this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a special when a local business chooses to work with us. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to host more groups from businesses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; large or small, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all good,â&#x20AC;? said Kube. Build days in Amery are Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at 218 Laconie Ave. Volunteer turnout

has been low recently due to the weekday-only build schedule. The LeTourneau family, a family of six, is currently staying in a small two-bedroom rental. This makes the need for volunteers even more urgent. Interested volunteers or groups can contact Kaye Herranen at 715-483RUND\H#ZLOGULYHUVKDELW

NOTICE

MY DAD

My dad was an ordinary man in the eyes of the world, But to me he was great. He was everything a dad should be. And even though there were twelve of us, There was always plenty for everyone. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how he managed but manage he did. He never had the extra money to take us to the movies or amusement parks, But he never complained. If he had a problem, he never said. An affectionate person he never was. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love you,â&#x20AC;? But love us he did. His everyday actions spoke for him, that was my dad. I will always remember my dad that way and love him I always will as he lives thru me.    3W

ature can be noisy. During a heavy rain and windstorm, we have to shout to be heard. In the 1920s when grasshoppers invaded the prairies, the noise of their wings and chirping made it impossible to hear anyone speak.

During those times, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear much of what goes on around us but only the roar of the storms. The Old Testament man Job faced the same situation when God allowed Satan to take everything away from him: his extensive property and means of support, his servants, and his children.
