October is Cooperative Month

Forming a cooperative 3DUWIRXURIĂ€YHSDUWVHULHV by The Alliance of Polk Burnett Cooperatives “Where Cooperation is at Work, Communities Prosperâ€? is the slogan for Cooperative Development Services Inc., cdsus.coop, headquartered in St. Paul, Minn. They are one of 24 cooperative development centers nationwide under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, rural development. They are just one resource of many for market assessment, feasibility studies and business plans as well as with aid for grant writing and bringing in speakers. How does a co-op form? The University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives, uwcc.wisc.edu, outlines the steps one can take in the 21st century to start a cooperative. First, “identify the problem or opportunity and gauge broader interest. Are there things we could achieve more readily, afford more easily, if we joined RWKHUVZLWKWKHVDPHQHHGRUGLIĂ€FXOW\"$UHWKHUHWKLQJV we could do together that it is not possible to do alone?â€?

New terrorist strategy targets wooded areas

Is Northwest Wisconsin safe?

E\-HDQ.RHO] Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTY - Nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, when 19 al-Qaida terrorists hijacked four commercial airplanes to use as bombs on the World Trade Center towers, the Pentagon and one other Washington, D.C., target. More than a decade later, the U.S. government is still counting the costs, and citizens are still looking over their shoulders. The terrorists financed the attack by spending an estimated $400,000-$500,000. But, in addition to the devastating human costs, the damage to the U.S. economy was exponential DV ZHOO DV ODVWLQJ DQG VLJQLĂ&#x20AC;cant. The stock market remained closed for six days, and when it

reopened, U.S. stocks had lost $1.4 trillion in value. To date, the country is still rebounding from the resulting rise in unemployment and decrease in gross domestic product/exports. Not to mention that the eventual wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, along with all our other efforts in the global war on terror including homeland security, have now cost over $5 trillion. The lasting psychological and emotional effects are harder to assess. Every time something bad happens, we immediately speculate, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could this be terrorism?â&#x20AC;? In the context of a discussion about harvesting timber, Burnett Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Forest and Parks Administrator Jake Nichols informed the board of supervisors at their regular monthly meeting Thursday, Oct. 17, that he recently received an email sugJHVWLQJWKDW&RORUDGRIRUHVWĂ&#x20AC;UHV

are part of a terrorist strategy to deplete our natural resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scary thought,â&#x20AC;? Nichols said, as he implied that a threat like that may encourage forestry managers to harvest timber sooner rather than later. Most rhetoric about terrorist activities in our forests has been dismissed as a conservative conspiracy theory, however, credibility is growing.

Undercover meth buys lead to 20 felony charges

Coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest totals over two dozen charges

E\*UHJ0DUVWHQ Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A couple is facing multiple felony charges for several alleged drug sales to undercover informants, and the man was already free on bond at the time, adding to his potential for time in prison. According to the probable FDXVHUHSRUWVĂ&#x20AC;OHGZLWKWKH3RON County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, William J. Cafaro, 53, Amery, and Jeanette Carlson, 44, Amery, are facing multiple charges from a series of drug buys over a twoweek period. The drug buys occurred at the apartment the couple was staying at on Hwy. 8 in the Town of Apple River. The alleged drug buys occurred on Oct. 1, Oct. 4 and Oct. 14, and included sales

&DIDUR&DUOVRQ of methamphetamine, usually for $150. Cafaro was already on bond for previous drug charges, and conditions of his bond were to not commit any further crimes, as well as not to use drugs. Carlson is being charged with two charges of felony deliver/manufacture methamphetamine, possession of meth, PDLQWDLQLQJ D GUXJ WUDIĂ&#x20AC;FNLQJ house and two misdemeanor charges related to the possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. She appeared in court be-

fore Judge Jeffery Anderson on Tuesday, Oct. 15, where he set a $10,000 signature bond and an Oct. 24 preliminary hearing, where he will determine if enough evidence exists to move ahead to trial. Cafaro already has several pending felony cases, going back to 2011 for possession of meth, paraphernalia and a switchblade knife, misdemeanor criminal WUHVSDVVLQJ DQG JUDIĂ&#x20AC;WL IHORQ\ bail jumping, misdemeanor bail jump and resisting arrest. He also has several more felony bail jumping charges from 2012, and a pending battery of charges that includes possession of narcotics, three more felony bail jumping, and a misdemeanor bail jump from this January. He was also busy this summer, as he has six more felony charges from an arrest in June, where he was charged with felony maintaining a drug trafĂ&#x20AC;FNLQJ KRXVH DV ZHOO DV IRXU

more related meth charges and another felony bail jump. Cafaroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest charges are among the biggest laundry list of charges in recent memory, and include no less than 20 felony charges and four misdemeanors, including possession, sale and delivery of methamphetamine, bail jumping and more. He also appeared before Judge Anderson on Oct. 15, where he set a $25,000 cash bond and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Thursday, Oct. 24, where he will determine if enough evidence exists to move ahead to trial. Cafaro has an extensive criminal history, going back over a dozen years, and the latest litany of charges will likely be combined under one umbrella. The Leader will follow his court hearings in the coming months.

Taylor, Gronski update supervisors on Burnett communications project

E\-HDQ.RHO] Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTY - Fresh from a vendor status meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 15, county board Chairman Don Taylor and ad hoc committee Chair Jeremy Gronski were able to provide a very thorough update on Burnett Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $4.5 million communications project at the county board meeting held Thursday, Oct. 17. ´2Q Ă&#x20AC;YH RI WKH QLQH VLWHV HYHU\WKLQJ is moving forward,â&#x20AC;? Gronski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our contract with Racom is for nine sites, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK there.â&#x20AC;? However, Edge Consulting and Joe Daniels Construction, who were both hired to prepare the sites for Racomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equipment installation, are

being delayed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edge and Daniels are contracted for seven sites, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to move crews to other jobs because of the delays,â&#x20AC;? Gronski reported. At this point, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how that might affect the budget or the time line. The communications project involves nine different towers, some of which are LQWHUGHSHQGHQW7KHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVLWHLQYROYHVD new tower to be built near the courthouse. Construction should be completed by the end of October. The Karlsborg and Hillside sites are also well under way. The Barronett-Dairyland tower has been SUHSSHGDQGWKHUH¡VĂ&#x20AC;QDOO\DJUHHQOLJKW on the Grantsburg tower, so the site is staked and ready for construction.

However, the Danbury and Hertel towers are on hold until meetings can take place with the Tribal Council and the joint water commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a communication issue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delaying the system,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spoke to several council members that seemed to think it would just work at a pace thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to.â&#x20AC;? A meeting is scheduled for Nov. 11. The Webb Lake tower, purchased from AT&T by the American Tower Corporation since the conditional-use permit was JUDQWHG LV LQ OHJDO OLPER  6SHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\ ATC does not recognize any obligation to the county because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of the purchase agreement. It may fall to the county to threaten revocation of the per-

mit before ATC responds to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to mount equipment on the tower. Finally, the Rooney Lake tower is also on hold because the addition of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equipment along with the installation of heavier 4G cell network equipment exceeds the structural capacity of the tower. Taylor expressed relief that the government shutdown is over, and the FCC can respond to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for an extension on the deadline to upgrade to narrowband. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are absolutely not going to make the deadline,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the odds that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only ones in the country are slim to none.â&#x20AC;?

The complaint accuses both the sheriff and the county of creating â&#x20AC;&#x153;an unbearable and intolerable work environmentâ&#x20AC;? and outlines a sequence of events that allegedly chronicles mounting tension between Roland and Nesvold over a disagreement about the proposed relocation of the dispatch center to Polk County. Nesvold claims he was ordered not to talk about the issue, then was wrongly punished when he did. Nesvold claims that the punishment included retaliation, discrimination and assault. The facts of the case are complicated by the recent departure of county Adminis-

According to the policy, Fitzgerald was obligated to contact Nesvold to inform him that his complaint was untimely and give him Ă&#x20AC;YHZRUNLQJGD\VWRSURYLGHDVDWLVIDFtory explanation for why it was submitted late. If the grievant fails to provide an adequate response, the policy states that

According to state statute, if the county does not issue a letter to disallow the claim, it is automatically disallowed after 60 days, which led the county and the sheriff to believe that the matter was resolved by default. There are various other statutes of limitation that may be relevant. For example, in a wrongful termination case, the vicWLPKDVGD\VWRĂ&#x20AC;OHDFODLP,QFDVHV involving a violation of civil rights, such as freedom of speech, the victim has 300 GD\VWRĂ&#x20AC;OH7KHĂ&#x20AC;OLQJGDWHRI1HVYROG¡V suit is Oct. 9, 2013, 223 days after his resigQDWLRQDQGDWOHDVWGD\VDIWHUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW alleged violation of freedom of speech.

It will be up to the court to either dismiss the case or schedule a trial.

Heavy snow confirmed as cause of power outages GRANTSBURG - NWE Vice President -RKQ5LFKDUGVFRQĂ&#x20AC;UPHGWKDWKHDY\VQRZ on Sunday, Oct. 20, caused widespread outages in northern Polk and portions of Burnett County. A crew was busy Sunday afternoon into early Monday morning restoring power to customers. Most of

the outages affected only a few customers at a time, but the outages were scattered from Centuria in Polk County north to the Yellow Lake area in Burnett County. One of the larger outages was in the village of Siren. A tree behind Holiday Station South knocked out upward of 350

customers. The outage lasted about 45 minutes. The weather was possibly a contributing factor in another outage near Centuria that affected less than 100 customers early Monday morning, Oct 21. The cause of this outage was a failed high-voltage con-

nection, but it took about three hours to locate the problem. Yet another outage on the south side of Frederic occurred Saturday afternoon, Oct. 19, when a contractor cut an underground line. - Sherill Summer

Polk County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department debuts new LPG squad truck

E\*UHJ0DUVWHQ Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On the surface, Deputy Jeff Hahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1120 cruiser would appear to be a typical Polk County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department squad truck. But there is a curious sticker on the front bumper that might suggest otherwise. The 2011, four-wheel-drive, club cab Chevrolet 1500 has something dramatically different about its 5.3-liter V8 power plant and the fuel it uses. That previously normally aspirated Vortec V-8 engine is now one of the most cutting-edge power plants in the county, because of a specialized propane dual-fuel system. Roll back the black vinyl tonneau cover on the truck bed and the evidence of an unusual tank is obvious. Thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Wisconsin Propane Gas Association, the cost of the conversion from gasoline to dual fuel is almost entirely covered, with Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s propane division making up the difference, which usually runs about $5,500. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The slick thing about this system is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either gas or liquid propane,â&#x20AC;? stated Todd Miller, PBECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s propane division general manager. Miller pointed out the details of the system that was built into the Chevy squad by a 6KDNRSHH0LQQĂ&#x20AC;UPWKDWVSHFLDOL]HVLQDOWHUQDWLYHIXHO systems. The vapor-based injection system on the Vortec eliminates the traditional cold-start issues with some propane vehicles, as it always starts with gasoline, and then once warm, reverts to propane use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost seamless,â&#x20AC;? Miller said, noting that the system allows the truck a total range of over 1,000 miles as it carries its factory gasoline tanks, as well as the 60pound LP tank in the truck bed, bolted securely to the frame rails.

Miller said the WPGA grant requires the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department to keep close track of their fuel usage, and they plan to test it for real-world effectiveness, in part as they evaluate possible expansion of the program to other vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing how it works for us,â&#x20AC;? stated Polk County Sheriff Peter Johnson. The safety of the system is well-tested, and LP vehicles are not that new, after all. Miller said Jefferson County has been using LP vehicles for over two decades, with few problems, and their vehicle life has been extended dramatically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cleaner (emission) and the fuel is 98 percent domestically produced,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would guess with the much cleaner fuel, the engine life will be exponentially longer,â&#x20AC;? Hahn added, noting that the application also allows extended oil changes, which typically cost about $60 with the specialized synthetic lubricants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And honestly, I really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even there.â&#x20AC;? Johnson is also noting that if the LP experiment pays off, he can see the department adding future vehicles and possibly even their own fueling station at their maintenance shop.

Because there are fewer BTUs in a gallon of LP than gasoline, there is a slight power loss and mileage loss, usually between 10 and 15 percent, depending on several factors, but Hahn said the supposed power loss was â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost imperceptible,â&#x20AC;? and said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even noticeable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually think it idles smoother on propane,â&#x20AC;? Hahn added. The system has numerous fail safes and will automatically fall back to gasoline operation if a â&#x20AC;&#x153;check engineâ&#x20AC;? situation arises, until the diagnosis is made. Miller is hoping the system allows the department to realize the savings that are possible with such a system, as well as the reduced costs of maintenance and fuel. He also pointed out that some manufacturers are about to release factory conversion systems, such as Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3.4liter V6, which will have a factory LP conversion option in the very near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see the applications really growing,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. PCSD squad truck No. 1120 may be an experiment, for now, but the system is well-tested and maintains a true original equipment manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look, and other than a few extra valves, fuel runners and that 60-gallon tank in the bed, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell the difference. Except for that little sticker on the bumper, of course.

Letters Take a look in the mirror This is my response to Marilyn BissettKruger, her letter titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a difference a mile makes.â&#x20AC;? Madam, how dare you blame Gov. Walker and the rest of our Republican representatives for your health-care issues? You Liberals, Democrats, Progressives, uninformed and Socialists voted for Obama and his socialist agenda and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you got. Obama gave every state the option to create their version of Obamacare or he would create it for them. Well, what you voted for is what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting. All of you people that think the government owes you cheap or free health care for life, welfare, food stamps, free phones, are destroying this once-great country. It is high time each and every one of you takes a good look at yourselves in a mirror and start taking responsibility for your own life and stop relying on the rest of us to take care of you. They should march every one of you through the streets of Detroit, Mich. It was run by Democrats for over 50 years, and today it looks like any city in Germany after the end of WWII. This is what the rest of this once-great nation is going to look like if you people are left in charge. The only thing this government owes you is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Thoughts on declining tourism

I am responding to your request as to why tourism has gone down in Burnett County. There are, in my opinion, many reasons. But I doubt that anything will change to correct the problems.

Dealing with oppression Recently, the Leader republished a Wisconsin State Journal report from the Wisconsin Historical Society titled, Odd Wisconsin: Lonely protesters denounced U.S. Indian policies. You may read it on line, referenced below. In response to such a history lesson, I wonder how to deal with the legacy of persecution and oppression our European American ancestors visited upon Natives and other minorities. For me, guilt doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel right because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve rarely if ever directly hurt a minority person. So, even though the most awful persecution occurred long before I was born, the consequences (which last for generations including genetic injury) are still evident in the poverty, violence and illness too prevalent in demoralized minority communities. So if guilt is not appropriate, what is our shared moral inheritance? When my son egged the house of a classmate, I felt no guilt (I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it.) but shared responsibility for reparation; we cleaned the egg off the house with apology. Do we have a duty to help repair the damage caused by our deceased family members? Is it the right thing to do? We

canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change the past, but we can change the future by choosing to ally with our fellow Americans in their struggle to recover from the effects of outrageous oppression. What that means requires deliberate individual and collective thought and action. With Native Americans, it might begin by fully honoring the treaties our ancestors signed. And if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough to get my attention, I think about my grandchildren likely to become a future European American minority at risk of oppression by the new majority.

Grounds for resignation? What did we learn from Congressman Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Tea Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holding the welfare of our nation hostage to irrational demands? More importantly to our future, what did Duffy learn? He is the one that we sent to Washington to enact laws, preserve our democracy and guard our respect in the world. Duffy needs to go back to basics. Start with reading the dictionary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reasonable: Capable of reasoning, rational â&#x20AC;&#x201C; governed by or in accordance with reason or sound judgment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; within the bounds of common sense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not excessive or extreme, fair, moderate.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arrogant: Overly convinced of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own importance, overbearingly proud.â&#x20AC;? What is the Tea Party today? What started as a deep feeling of outrage of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bailing out Wall Street banks and a fear of losing individual freedom has degenerated into a destructive disregard for majority rule, constructive dialog and the welfare of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens. The shutdown and threat of debt default has done genuine harm to individual Americans, our economy and our reputation in the world. We should start asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is Duffyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unreasonable arrogance grounds for him to resign?â&#x20AC;? Fred Kramer Spooner

State Senate approves tax relief on bipartisan 28-5 vote MADISON - The state Legislature took decisive action this past week to approve a $100 million reduction in statewide property taxes, returning surplus tax revenues back to taxpayers.

Gov. Walker called a special session of the Legislature on providing propertytax relief by increasing state aid to school districts, with limits on district expenditures. After this bill is signed into law, taxpayers will enjoy a total of $1.5 billion in tax relief during the past three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a 27-percent increase in property taxes during the past decade, Wisconsin property owners deserve a break.

A Republican-sponsored bill would take that power away. Rick Stadelman is the director of the Wisconsin Towns Association. He says this bill would also reverse a state SuSUHPH &RXUW GHFLVLRQ WKDW DIĂ&#x20AC;UPHG WKH right of unzoned governments to regulate sand mines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By overturning the Zwiefelhofer case, at least as far as nonmetallic mining, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a loss of local control that the Supreme Court validated just last year.â&#x20AC;?

Perhaps a bigger question is whether this bill would void local mining ordinances already in place. Stadelman says it may. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any agreement that was based on a licensing ordinance, they could come in and argue that those agreements need to be reopened,â&#x20AC;&#x153; Stadelman said, â&#x20AC;?at least because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have authority to require the license any longer.â&#x20AC;? The Town of Howard in Chippewa County passed an ordinance that is used as a model by other local governments across the state. Town board Chair Vernon Schindler expects all local oversight to disappear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bunch of humbug. I mean, we went through a lot of work to get what we got, and we feel it was as good as we could get, we know that.â&#x20AC;? The controversial bill is currently circulating for co-sponsors. A committee hearing is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 24.

Letters What a gem Last week my wife and I saw the Festival Theatre production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman.â&#x20AC;? It is great!

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Approving $100 million in property tax relief once again demonstrates the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to lowering the tax burden on Wisconsin taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? continued Harsdorf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased with our prompt action to pass growth in revenues back to our residents.â&#x20AC;? With the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions, it is anticipated that the property tax bill on a median-valued home in Wisconsin will fall for the third consecutive year. This is in contrast to the 27-percent increase in property taxes in the decade prior to 2011. The $100 million in new property tax relief builds upon the property tax limits

Wisconsin campuses are dealing with a new form of smoking: e-cigarettes E\6KDPDQH0LOOV Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Campuses around Wisconsin arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite sure how to deal with e-cigarettes, a relatively new product that more young people are trying and using in place of traditional cigarettes. In 2010, University of Wisconsin - Stout RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOV EDQQHG WREDFFR EXW QRW HFLJDrettes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if we had decided to pursue something, it would be held in abeyance until students had their say in April,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Mell, the communications director at UW-Stout, who also chairs a campus committee on tobacco-free policies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty much in limbo on this issue right now.â&#x20AC;? E-cigarettes are banned at University of Wisconsin - River Falls. The campus was declared tobacco-free in July. Blake Fry, special assistant to the chancellor, said the GHFLVLRQ WR EDQ HFLJDUHWWHV ZDV LQĂ Xenced in part by the lack of data on long-

term health effects of inhaling nicotine vapor from the battery-operated device. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the vapor,â&#x20AC;? said Fry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of disagreement as to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contained in there.â&#x20AC;? Fry said the ban was also based on ecigarettes being misleadingly marketed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a cessation toolâ&#x20AC;? for smokers, and that students were using them for smoking marijuana. Students initiated the smoking bans at both universities. Mell said compliance is getting better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we have people who still choose to use tobacco products on campus in violation of policy? Sure we do. But over the years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen compliance increase,â&#x20AC;? he said. In Wisconsin, 16 colleges and universities have smoke-free policies, both indoors and out, according to the American Nonsmokersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rights Foundation.

Republican Ribble defends vote to end shutdown E\0LNH6LPRQVRQ Wisconsin Public Radio WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Reid Ribble, the only Republican in the Wisconsin congressional delegation to vote with Democrats to reopen the federal government and avoid default, is getting some political pushback for his position, but Ribble said calls from his constituents are running 4-to-1 in favor of his vote. Ribble said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t voting with the Democrats per se. ´:KHQ,ORRNDWLVVXHVRIĂ&#x20AC;QDQFH,VHSarate them from a Republican idea or a Democratic idea. I just look at the math,â&#x20AC;? KH VDLG ´$QG IRU PH WKLV LV D Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLDO and mathematical decision. I made the best decision I could based on the mathematics in front of me.â&#x20AC;? Fellow Republican U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy voted against the continuing resolution. He said the Affordable Care Act needed to end, and the budget should be balanced. He said Republicans had offered compromises. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, fully funding of the government but defunding of Obamacare. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really think that was going to be successful.

I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that (the) president would defund his signature legislation, although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like it to be defunded,â&#x20AC;? he said. Duffy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fault Ribble for his vote, but some special interest groups like Americans for Limited Government do. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman, Rick Manning, said they think Ribbleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote was a mistake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When (Ribble) was elected, there were high hopes that he would be that kind of congressman. And he still can be that kind of congressman. When somebody messes up, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them that it was a mistake, then they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ribble said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not afraid of a primary challenge next year because of his vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really live in fear regarding a primary challenge or general election challenge,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t choose to live in that realm. Fear causes a person to be unable to lead.â&#x20AC;? Ribble said he doubts Democrats and Republicans will do this dance at the edge of a cliff next year. He said both sides want more economic stability.

In fact, any online search of newspaper sites from Pierre to Sioux Falls will reveal 2013 to be one of the poorer seasons overall as far as hunter success is concerned.

Deer hunt for disabled hunters another success

E\0DUW\6HHJHU Leader staff writer POLK COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local DNR conservation wardens and the Polk County Sportsmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club held the annual deer hunt for disabled hunters from Oct. 5-13 in Polk County. As many as 33 hunters took part in the hunt and 10 deer were harvested over the course of two weekends. Several volunteer guides and landowners help make the hunt a reality each year, for many disabled hunters who have no place to hunt, or simply need some assistance in getting back to the outdoors to share in the hunting tradition. In order to qualify for the hunt, the hunter must have a valid Class A, long-term Class B that authorizes shooting from a vehicle, or Class C or D disabled hunting permit, according to the DNR. /DQGRZQHUVRUVSRQVRUVĂ&#x20AC;OORXWDQDSplication to authorize the gun deer hunt on their property and hunts are only allowed to take place on the properties that have been enrolled in the program. Over the years, several hundred acres have been generously provided by willing landowners in Polk County and several other areas across the state of Wisconsin. For more information visit the DNR website at dnr.wi.gov. Landowners can enroll online and a list of current sponsors can be found there as well. Traditionally, hunters are required to meet a Sept. 1 participation deadline in order to be considered for the hunt.

Fall is best time to check for aquatic invasive species POLK COUNTY - As temperatures drop and piers, docks and boats are removed from the water, lake residents are reminded to check for any new aquatic invasive species that might have attached themselves to equipment while it was submerged over the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Invasive species such as zebra mussels and quagga mussels are the only mussel species capable of attaching to hard surfaces. When piers, docks and boats are removed from the water, they can be easily inspected for aquatic invasive species, especially invasive zebra and quagga mussels,â&#x20AC;? says Jeremy Williamson, water quality specialist for Polk County. Aquatic invasive species are nonnative plants and animals that threaten Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakes and river systems by causing environmental and economic harm. Zebra mussels can clog water intakes and pipes, encrust piers, boats and motors, and their sharp shells can cut the feet of swimmers. Zebra mussels have been found in less than 5 percent of Wisconsin lakes pre-

dicted to be suitable for zebra mussels. In Polk County, zebra mussels havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been reported in any lakes/rivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the time of this writing, zebra mussels havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been documented in Polk County lakes and rivers. Bass Lake, in St. Croix County, is the closest lake to Polk County that has an established population of zebra mussels,â&#x20AC;? says Katelin Holm, aquatic invasive species coordinator for Polk County. To protect Polk Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakes and rivers, landowners and contractors are being asked to carefully examine piers, boats, boatlifts, rafts and any other equipment that has been in the water for a prolonged period of time for signs of zebra mussels during removal. To learn more about zebra mussels or Wisconsin aquatic invasive species regulations, visit dnr.wi.gov keyword invasive species. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Polk County Land and Resources Department

POLK  COUNTY  LAND  CONSERVATION  COMMITTEE NOTICE  OF  PUBLIC  HEARING THE  POLK  COUNTY  AGRICULTURE  &  FARMLAND  PRESERVATION 2014-­2023  PLAN PLEASE   TAKE   NOTICE,   that   in   accordance   with   ss.   66.1001(4)   and   91.10(3),   Wis.   Stats.,   on   Tuesday,  November  5,  2013,  at  9:30  a.m.,  in  the  County  Boardroom  at  the  Polk  County  Govern-­ ment  Center,  100  Polk  County  Plaza,  Balsam  Lake,  Wisconsin,  the  Polk  County  Land  Conservation   Committee   will   hold   a   public   hearing   on   the   proposed   Polk   County   Agriculture   and   Farmland   Preservation   2014-­2023   Plan,   herein   referred   to   as   â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   Proposed  Amended   Plan.â&#x20AC;?   During   said   public  hearing,  the  Land  Conservation  Committee  will  receive  written  and  verbal  public  review  and   commentary,  conduct  open  discussion,  and  receive  and  discuss  staff  information  provided  on  the   Proposed  Amended  Plan  Pursuant  to  s.  91.10(5),  Wis.  Stat.,  Polk  County  has  provided  notice  of   public  hearing  and  copy  of  The  Proposed  Amended  Plan  to  the  Wisconsin  Department  of  Agricul-­ ture,  Trade  and  Consumer  Protection  (DATCP).  The  Land  Conservation  Committee  will  receive  any   review  or  commentary  provided  by  DATCP  before  or  during  said  public  hearing.  At  the  close  of  the   public  hearing,  the  Land  Conservation  Committee  will  consider  information  and  comments  received   and   take   action   by   resolution   to   recommend   the   Polk   County   Board   of   Supervisors   adopt   The   Proposed  Amended  Plan,  with  or  without  appropriate  revision. Summary  of  the  Proposed  Polk  County  Agriculture  and  Farmland  Preservation  2014-­2023  Plan: Polk  County  has  had  a  Farmland  Preservation  Plan  since  1979.  Recently,  the  Wisconsin  Dept.  of   Agriculture  revised  its  Administrative  Rule,  Chapter  91,  relating  to  farmland  preservation.  As  part   of  this  revision,  each  county  needed  to  update  their  existing  plans  to  incorporate  the  new  admin-­ istrative  rule.  The  main  purpose  of  the  Agriculture  and  Farmland  Preservation  Plan  is  to  allow  for   citizens  of  Polk  County  to  be  able  to  collect  farmland  preservation  tax  credits.  The  plan  will  also   be  a  guiding  document  for  decision  making. Polk  County  began  updating  this  plan  in  the  spring  of  2012  with  an  informational  meeting.  A  citi-­ zen  committee  was  developed  to  guide  this  process  and  provide  input.  In  addition  to  this  citizen   committee,  there  were  several  county  workshops  on  this  topic,  as  well  as  a  written  survey  distrib-­ uted  to  solicit  even  further  input  from  Polk  County  citizens. The   proposed   Polk   County   Agriculture   and   Farmland   Preservation   2014-­2023   Plan   (The   Pro-­ posed  Amended  Plan)  considers  and  discusses  trends  as  well  as  the  opinions  expressed  by  citi-­ zens  through  meetings  and  related  planning  documents.  The  Proposed  Amended  Plan  needed  to   identify  lands  suitable  for  preservation.  To  identify  these  lands,  a  system  was  developed  to  clas-­ sify  lands  in  the  county.  The  system  is  called  the  Land  Evaluation  Site  Assessment  tool.  This  tool   scores  lands  in  the  county  based  on  objective  criteria  including:  soils  capability  classes,  proximity   to  a  city/village,  total  number  of  acres  in  agricultural  use,  surrounding  property  land  use,  etc.  The   Proposed  Amended  Plan  incorporates  this  particular  site  assessment  tool  and  also  incorporates   new  maps,  created  from  this  information.  The  maps  simply  identify  what  properties  in  the  county   have   quality   soils   and   other   factors   that   make   it   more   suitable   for   continued   agricultural   use.   These   identified   properties   would   be   eligible   to   participate   in   the   State   of   Wisconsin   Farmland   Preservation  Program  through  avenues  of  that  program. The  Proposed  Amended  Plan  utilizes  certain  new  zoning  districting  that  is  certified  by  the  State  of   Wisconsin.  This  new  zoning  district,  called  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farmland  Preservation  District,â&#x20AC;?  will  replace  the  exist-­ ing  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Exclusive  Agriculture  Districtâ&#x20AC;?  in  Polk  Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  zoning  ordinances.  Farming  and  forestry  are   two   types   of   economic   development   that   are   important   to   Polk   County,   but   unlike   most   other   forms  of  economic  development,  farming  and  forestry  are  dependent  on  significant  quantities  of   high  quality  lands.  The  Proposed  Amended  Plan  helps  address  this  fact  and  illuminates  the  opin-­ ions  of  the  citizens  of  Polk  County  in  those  regards. Designated  County  Employees  for  Additional  Information: Copies  of  the  proposed  Polk  County  Agriculture  and  Farmland  Preservation  2014-­2023  Plan;Íž  and   Comment  Forms  for  The  Proposed  Amended  Plan  are  available  for  public  review  in  the  offices  of   the   Polk   Land   Information   Office,   100   Polk   County   Plaza,   Suite   130,   Balsam   Lake,   Wisconsin,   and  the  Polk  County  Land  and  Water  Resources  Department,  100  Polk  County  Plaza,  Suite  120,   Balsam   Lake,   Wisconsin.  A   digital   copy   of   the   proposed   Polk   County  Agriculture   and   Farmland   Preservation   2014-­2023   Plan   and   an   electronic   comment   form   are   available   on   Polk   Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   website  at  the  following  address: http://www.co.polk.wi.us/landwater/county%20draft%20plan%20page.asp In  accordance  with  s.  66.1001(4)(d)3.,  Wis.  Stats.,  additional  copies  of  the  proposed  amendment   to  the  plan  and  additional  information  concerning  the  proposed  amendment  to  the  plan  may  be   received  from  the  following  designated  county  employees: Eric  Wojchik Tim  Anderson Bob  Kazmierski Conservation  Planner County  Planner UW  Extension 100  Polk  County  Plaza 100  Polk  County  Plaza 100  Polk  County  Plaza Suite  120 Suite  130 Suite  190 Balsam  Lake,  WI  54810 Balsam  Lake,  WI  54810 Balsam  Lake,  WI  54810 715-­485-­8644 715-­485-­9225 715-­485-­8608 ericw@co.polk.wi.us tim.anderson@co.polk.wi.us bob.kazmierski@co.polk.wi.us .

Luck Red Ribbon Day LUCK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Residents in Luck may have noticed a sweeping blanket of youngsters throughout the village and downtown last Thursday, Oct. 17, as kindergarten through sixth-grade students spread out throughout the village to tie red ribbons and remind the community about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, while also stating their drug and booze-free commitments. According to Luck Elementary School guidance counselor Vern Longhenry, the Red Ribbon Week was also a chance for the K-6 kids to sign a drug and alcohol free pledge board, and create their own posters to note that pledge. They went uptown and tied those red ribbons on doors to remind residents and businesses of that commitment. They also took part in AODA education in guidance classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was done in conjunction with our quarterly celebration for PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System),â&#x20AC;? Longhenry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The high school read VWDWLVWLFV VSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F WR LVVXHV DVVRFLDWHG ZLWK GUXJV alcohol and tobacco over the intercom between classes all day.â&#x20AC;? The Red Ribbon week also included a cookout on Thursday at the school and has become a way for the classes to make their own unique statements on their commitment against drug and alcohol abuse. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Greg Marsten
