No plans or permits, a changed scene, over $100,000 cost E\*UHJJ:HVWLJDUG Leader staff writer CLAM FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McKenzie Trail is a 2-mile-long town road in the southeast corner of the Town of Clam Falls. Much of it was a narrow, winding trail through the forest in the McKenzie Creek Wildlife Area. It is now a new, wide, town road. The change to McKenzie Trail over the past year is an ongoing story. There are several issues: the change in the character of the road, a lack of permits and plans, and the cost of the project. The active parties in the story currently include WKH :LVFRQVLQ '15 WZR 3RON &RXQW\ departments and the Town of Clam Falls. In brief, this is the story. The McKenzie Trail project was started with no permits issued or plans submitted. The trail runs close to McKenzie Creek, and there are issues of shoreland protection and environmental concerns. The project cost is now over $100,000 and the work is not complete. There are mixed opinions about the results of the project. 3DUW RI WKH VWRU\ LV WKDW WKH VHTXHQFH of events for a project like this was not followed. There are different versions as to why that planning/permitting did not happen, but the result has been an increasing expansion of the cast of participants after the initial construction work was completed. The story surfaced a year ago, in September 2012, when construction on the road drew public notice. The Clam Falls Town Board met on-site with Kevin Morgan, DNR wildlife biologist, on Friday, Sept. 7, as heavy equipment had already changed the scene. McKenzie Trail starts at CTH W just west of McKenzie Creek and runs north. 7KH Ă&#x20AC;UVW  PLOHV RI WKH URDG UXQV through the wildlife area before turning west and past some private woods and farmland. After two miles, it connects with 315th Avenue. The section through the wildlife area was a narrow, sandy road edged by large pines.

The town and the DNR had held discussions on making repairs to the road over the years. Morgan and Lee Carter, the Clam Falls roads foreman, talked about getting some funds for roadwork in early 2011, according to Town of Clam Falls Chair Greg Anderson and town minutes. Those discussions led to an application by the town for road-aid funds available for town roads in state lands. An application was submitted to the DNR on Jan. 6, 2012, and approved by the DNR on Feb. 20, 2012. The application states that the road was very lightly used except in hunting season.

Anderson told the Leader in a phone conversation that he sought advice from the Towns Association on how to respond to what he calls a subpoena. He said that at the meeting he stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t participate because of open-meeting laws and unposted meetings.â&#x20AC;? Anderson told the Leader that he told them he could listen but not comment and could not make decisions for the town. He said the meeting went on anyway. Meanwhile, Clam Falls had hired engiQHHULQJĂ&#x20AC;UP$\UHV$VVRFLDWHVWRSUHSDUH an erosion-control and storm-water management plan to meet the requirements of the county. That 81-page plan, which was released in June 2012, includes a detailed description of the work still to be done on each section of the project, together with mile-by-mile maps and engineering details. The study cost $7,900, according to Knutson. 7KH3RON&RXQW\%RDUGRI$GMXVWPHQWV considered a request for a special exemption to the shoreland ordinance at its Sept. 17 meeting.

That permit will cost Clam Falls $1,050 since it would be granted after the work was done. The fee, if the application had been made prior to the start of the project, would have been $275. DeBrock-Owens sent the town an additional letter, dated Oct. 16, listing 11 construction activities that still needed to be completed. The letter notes that the town still needs to pay a $235 permit fee and complete an after-the-fact general permit application. It says that all items should be completed immediately. The letter also says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Department believes the town is in violation and will continue to be in violation until all activities and permits discussed â&#x20AC;Ś are completed.â&#x20AC;? The cost to Clam Falls, so far, is about $104,000, not including the cost of six culverts and at least $1,285 in remaining permit fees. That includes the Gjonnes charge of $57,750 and $37,000 for gravel. Of that, the DNR paid $25,000 in the 2012 road-aid grant. Anderson says the town now has a very well-constructed road, the best in Clam Falls. He says the road is good for many years. Anderson says the road is safe, comfortable to drive on and enjoyable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turned out very nice,â&#x20AC;? he says.

Unity budget includes levy and mill rate increases

State aid down to 12 percent of budget

E\0DU\6WLUUDW Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Despite a decision by the school board to assess taxpayers $85,000 less than the allowed amount, the 2013-14 budget for the Unity School District includes a tax levy increase of $333,325. This 3.15-percent increase brings the total levy to $10,867,715. This translates into a taxing mill rate increase of 56 cents per $1,000, which means that property valued at $100,000 will be assessed $56 more in school tax this year than last year. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total levy mill rate will increase from $10.80 per $1,000 in equalized property value to $11.36. District Administrator Brandon Robinson, at the annual school district meeting held Monday, Oct. 28, said that the decision to â&#x20AC;&#x153;underlevyâ&#x20AC;? by $85,000 could be risky because it could permanently reduce the amount of revenue the district can generate in the future. However, he pointed out, the board felt that the 3.15-percent levy increase is enough of a burden on taxpayers. The 2013-14 tax levy was approved by the three dozen or so district residents in attendance at the meeting. 6WDWHDLG Like many districts across the state, Unity has experienced a dramatic decline in state aid during the past 10 or more years. Since the 2006-07 school year, state aid has declined 65 percent, from $3.75 million to $1.3 million. This past year, alone, state aid to Unity decreased 15.76 percent, from $1.563 million to $1.317 million. Only one district in the state had a greater percentage decrease. Unity currently receives 12 percent of its operating revenue from the state. Meanwhile, the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual budget has remained fairly steady at between $12 million and $13 million, forcing the taxpayers to make up more and more of the difference. In past years, the state provided an annual increase in aid in the neighborhood of $250 for each pupil

enrolled. Last year, however, that increase was $50 per pupil. It was bumped to $75 per student this year. The state uses the average enrollment over the previous three years to determine the per-pupil aid, and Unityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enrollment average over that period declined by 23 students, from 1,075 to 1,052. This decline brought in $297,204 in additional aid through the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declining enrollment exemp8QLW\ 6FKRRO 'LVWULFW $GPLQLV tion. Unityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status as WUDWRU%UDQGRQ5RELQVRQz3KRWRV a high-poverty district brought in an addiE\0DU\6WLUUDW tional $65,028, which is 20 percent less than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-poverty aid of $81,098. Regarding the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declining enrollment, Robinson noted that several larger classes have now graduated. The smaller class sizes coming up from the elementary school means that overall enrollment should level off, and the dramatic declines should end.

:LVFRQVLQ$FW Earlier this month, the state Legislature and the governor approved Wisconsin Act 46, which provides an additional $100 million in education funding over the next two years. Of that amount, $40,000 is slated for additional aid to schools for the 2013-14 school year, with the remaining $60,000 for next year. In reality, said Robinson, Unity School will only receive $181 in additional state funding as a result of the bill. Other districts in the area fared better, according to numbers from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau and pre-

sented by Robinson. At Frederic, the bill increases aid by $30,060, or 1.3 percent over the original amount. Luck will see an additional $32,074, 1.8 percent; Grantsburg an additional $41,075, 0.8 percent; St. Croix Falls an additional $66,728, 1.3 percent; Amery an additional $85,368, 1 percent; Osceola an additional $73,116, 0.7 percent; and Shell Lake an additional $37,772, 1.4 percent. Two districts in 'HEELH,QFH3HWHUVRQSUHVLGHQW Leader Land came out RIWKH8QLW\6FKRRO%RDUGRI(GX with even less than FDWLRQ Unity. Siren will receive an extra $96, and Webster will receive nothing. At the end of the meeting, when meeting facilitator DQG VFKRRO ERDUG 3UHVLGHQW 'HE 3HWHUVRQ DVNHG IRU questions or comments from the audience, school board member Dave Moore brought up the current inequities in state funding for schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working for us,â&#x20AC;? he said of the funding formula and Act 46. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get $181. Come on.â&#x20AC;? Moore pointed out that Tony Evers, state superintendent of schools, has developed a school funding proposal that would increase state aid to schools while holding the line on taxes. ´,WZRXOGFHUWDLQO\EHQHĂ&#x20AC;W8QLW\6FKRROVÂľ0RRUHVDLG Eversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proposal has not been given a hearing in the Legislature, said Moore, and he urged audience members to contact Sen. Sheila Harsdorf and Rep. Erik Severson to encourage their support.

Youth group to attend Reach Students conference in Green Bay Trade Lake Baptist hosts fundraiser supper Nov. 9

E\0DU\6WLUUDW Leader staff writer TRADE LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In early January, Trade Lake Baptist Church will be sending 30 youths plus several adult volunteers to join more than 3,000 youths from across Wisconsin and the Midwest at what organizers expect to be a life-changing conference in Green Bay. To help fund this trip for Trade Lake Baptist youths and their friends, the church is hosting a freewill sloppy joe supper Saturday, Nov. 9, from 4 to 7 p.m. There will also be a pie auction and a silent auction featuring student artwork and other donated items. Many of the pies will be freshly made by the students the morning of the fundraiser, and others will be donated by the bakers in the church.

The annual Reach Students conference is an opportunity for the local young people to connect more deeply with each other and with Jesus Christ, said Tom Lindau, volunteer youth worker at Trade Lake. Since youth groups from a number of local churches attend the conference, he added, it is also an opportunity to make cross-community connections that will strengthen relationships across a broader area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re connecting with Christ,â&#x20AC;? said Lindau, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also connecting with their neighbors.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme, Story Line: Rescued to Restore, will show how Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to rescue his people is evident WKURXJKRXWWKH%LEOHIURPWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWERRNRI*HQHVLVWR the last book of Revelation. Lindau said that the church is hoping to raise enough money to allow any interested young person to attend the conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to raise enough so anyone who wants to go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the $150 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can go,â&#x20AC;? he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to ease the burden.â&#x20AC;? The cost includes hotel, conference registration, transportation and some of the food. The conference draws more than 3,000 youths, plus adult chaperones, from more than 80 churches. This is WKHĂ&#x20AC;UVW\HDUWKDW7UDGH/DNH%DSWLVWZLOOEHWDNLQJLWV youth group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good bonding time for the kids,â&#x20AC;? said Lindau, who has attended the conference for the past 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They develop good relationships with each other. On a personal level, they come out with a lot of personal growth in their faith and in their character. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really what we want to see.â&#x20AC;?

Expense is actually one of Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaints; he claims that student testing will cost the state $14.6 million next year, more than double what it currently spends. While Johnson stated that the teachers establishment is against changing Common Core, the debate, itself, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t split neatly down ideological lines. In fact, although the Republican governors of Florida (Scott) and Louisiana (Jindal) have been the most vocal in their opposition to the federally mandated, yet unfunded, requirements, plenty of liberal groups are weighing in as well. Some teachers associations are concerned that teachers are being micromanaged and that the system will inevitably fail for hinging too heavily on standardized test results. Three out of four scheduled hearings around the state have already taken place, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bound to be more discussion. After all the effort to implement these standards, Johnson concluded, starting over would be a real problem.

Storm-water fees will increase E\*UHJJ:HVWLJDUG Leader staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Grantsburg Village will have the same property tax levy for the fourth year in a row. The general budget revenues and expenses will almost the same as for 2013. The draft 2014 village budget was the main item of business at the special village board meeting Monday, Oct. 28. The board also approved a storm-water utility fee increase and heard a report on the village trail system. All seven board members were present for the meeting. Sheila Meyer, the village treasurer, presented the detailed draft 2014 budget. The starting point was the property tax levy of $415,106. That is the same levy amount that the village had in 2011, 2012 and 2013. At 28 percent of the total revenue of $1,458,813, the levy is the second largest source of revenue for the village. The largest funding source is state shared revenue of $424,797 or 29 percent of the total. The state revenue is almost the same amount as in 2013. The total village revenue next year will be $96,000 lower than in 2013. The largest village expense is the police department budget of $309,142 or 21 percent of the total. That covers the wages and operating expenses, including veKLFOHFRVWVIRUWKHIRUFH3XEOLFZRUNVLV the second largest expense at $266,524, 18 percent, after deleting the trash collection cost which is paid by user fees. The public works budget includes wages for the village crew and some street repair expenses. Street construction projects are not part of the budget. Those projects will be decided later and paid for with borrowed funds. General government, the operations expenses for the village, is $235,775 or 16 percent. Debt service, the principal and interest expense for past village projects, is $230,260, 16 percent. Fire protection is $73,543, 5 percent. Ambulance service is $64,542 or 4 percent of the total. The swimming pool will cost $51,280 to operate in 2014. User fees are budgeted to pay $21,280 of that cost. The school district will pay $25,000 for the pool opera-

tions. That leaves the village pool expense at $5,000 for the year. The campgrounds will generate just over $12,000 for the village after operating costs are deducted from the campground revenues. Village employees will receive a 2-percent pay increase in 2014. The village is looking at an option to cover health insurance costs as part of another group. If that change does not work out, premiums under the present health insurance plan would increase 34 percent or $55,000. That higher amount is now included in the 2014 draft. The summary budget will be published in the coming week. The public budget hearing will be held Monday, Nov. 25, just in time for the property tax bills to be prepared and mailed. The storm-water utility fund will require a fee increase in 2014 to cover expenses. The board approved a $0.25 per-month increase for residential customers, raising that fee to $2 per month. The fee for multifamily, commercial, industrial, and public authority customers will increase 18 percent. Dale Dresel said that the increase is the result of past village decisions and was expected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a hidden agenda,â&#x20AC;? Dresel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have known that this was coming a long time ago. We must do it.â&#x20AC;?

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post :LWKQRIDQIDUHRUSROLWLFDOSRVWXULQJRU HYHQWKHQHHGIRUOHJLVODWLRQ, the Wisconsin DNR could take a cue from their brethren in Minnesota and implement a simple change - a relatively inexpensive one - that potentially could keep another tragedy like the one that occurred at Osceola this past weekend, from happening again. Granted, accidents will always happen. And the fact WKLVLVWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVXFKDFFLGHQWVLQFHVQRZmobile safety programs began 50 years ago in Wisconsin underlines just how responsible safety class operators have been. But obviously, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no strong argument against making this simple adjustment ... one more tweak for the safety of children. See editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post at the-leader.net.

Turtle Lake man faces multiple charges on domestic E\*UHJ0DUVWHQ Leader staff writer TURTLE LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A 32-year-old Turtle Lake man is facing a battery of charges after he allegedly threatened his wife multiple times and even drew his bow back on her while she was driving away with their children. According to the 3RON &RXQW\ 6KHULII¡V Department, the latest incident occurred on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 24, %UHQW'1HOVRQ and involved Brent D. Nelson, who was already out on bond for previous disorderly conduct and domestic assault charges the day prior. Nelson reportedly was released on bond from the previous charge when his wife was leaving, and deputies were at the home. He reportedly became angry

when his wife went bow hunting, and he tried to smash the bow and several childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toys. In the probable-cause report, the deputies reported that his wife said he allegedly nocked an arrow, drew the bow back and aimed it at her as she was pulling out of the driveway with two children in the car. When the woman told him how it was not smart, with the kids in the car, he is alleged to have told her he only wanted to kill her. 3ROLFHWRRN1HOVRQLQWRFXVWRG\DQGKH is now charged with felony counts of second-degree reckless endangerment and intimidating a victim, as well as six misdemeanor counts ranging from battery to disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property, as well as three bail-jumping charges. Nelson appeared in court on Friday, Oct. 25, where the judge set a $1,000 cash bond and a Nov. 4 preliminary hearing.

SCF assisted living facility moves ahead

A 32-unit facility receives zoning change, endorsement

E\*UHJ0DUVWHQ Leader staff writer ST. CROIX FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The St. Croix Falls Common Council approved a recommenGDWLRQE\WKH6W&URL[)DOOV3ODQ&RPPLVsion to zoning that would permit a 32-unit assisted living facility to be constructed on an approximately 4-acre parcel of land along the south side of Hwy. 8 in St. Croix Falls, to the west of Menards. The council approved the zoning change at their regular meeting on Monday, Oct. 28, after the commission held two public hearings on the matter at their Monday, Oct. 21, meeting, noting that the approximately 30-acre parcel currently does not have a zoning designation. The two requests were to zone the property R-3, residential, with another request for a conditional use permit, due to the size of the project, which would have its 32 units split equally between assisted elderly living and memory care, according to company representative David Ficek. There was an objection to the rezoning Ă&#x20AC;OHG E\ QHLJKERULQJ 7RZQ RI 6W &URL[ )DOOVRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVZKREHOLHYHGWKH5GHVLJnation may be considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;spot zoning,â&#x20AC;? and not in line with their comprehensive plan, which encouraged commercial-style development on Hwy. 8. But the city council and plan commission both thought otherwise, noting an adjacent residential zoning designation on a neighboring parcel, and later noting that the project itself might be considered a commercial venture. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation also raised several concerns about the entrance to the property, which was SUHYLRXVO\SODQQHGIRUXQVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;HGGHYHOopment and has an entrance off Hwy. 8, just before the roundabout at 208th Street. In a letter to the city and the developer, WisDOT instead set conditions to allow the entrance for one year during the construction phase, with an eventual permanent entrance from the south of the property, off

WisDOT considers the current property entrance a driveway and set conditions that may require the entrance to be closed even sooner if there are more than four accidents and more than 100 cars per day. The developer did not think that would be a problem. At the plan commission meeting, it was noted that the lack of highway access may affect the future zoning, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the DOT wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow access off the highway, zoning for commercial seems sort of meaningless,â&#x20AC;? stated Commissioner Warren White. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would seem like the time to correct past mistakes, on possible future service roads,â&#x20AC;? added Commissioner Arnie Carlson. The commission recommended both the

zoning change to R-3 and the conditional use permit for the project, suggesting they require the entire parcel be platted for access to Wilberg Boulevard. The common council took the commission recommendations to heart, but it was not all smooth sailing. Several questions surfaced about whether the entire 30-acre parcel should be zoned or just the smaller portion, and also about whether it should be roughly platted for future planning, but the biggest objections came from Alderman Randy Korb, who questioned whether the project was appropriate for the location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to the site, and I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it,â&#x20AC;? Korb said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not compatible. I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see something like this out there.â&#x20AC;? Korb also thought the spot-zoning question was â&#x20AC;&#x153;spot on,â&#x20AC;? and called the R-3 designation â&#x20AC;&#x153;willy-nilly.â&#x20AC;? But other aldermen disagreed and noted that the city has had several similar types of queries on assisted living in recent months, and that there must be demand for such a project and that the location is both wooded, scenic and good for such a project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a market strategy (for having LWWKHUH ÂľQRWHGGHYHORSHU)LFHN 7KHĂ&#x20AC;nanciers) have six years of experience with Ă&#x20AC;YHRWKHUSURMHFWVDOZD\VNH\HGDWPDMRU intersections.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree. I think this is an excellent use for this (property),â&#x20AC;? stated Alderman Don Anderson. In the end, the council approved the rezoning and the conditional use permit, with the noted WisDOT conditions. Ficek said the project would cost between $4 million and $5 million, and would likely start in the spring.

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open (for the roadwork).â&#x20AC;? Rasmussen noted that some of the remaining local share of the utility end of the project may be eligible for alternative funding, or at least low-interest loans, though the Safe Drinking Water and the Clean Water Fund loan programs. The project would also make it possible to move forward with the Maple Drive reconstruction and elimination of the Maple Drive lift station, as well as other utility upgrades. Rasmussen also encouraged the city to apply for transportation enhancement funding for the Vincent Street project, to carry out the thematics of downtown, since it has become the main southern entrance to the city in recent years. It could be used for decorative lighting, benches, possible bike trails or pedestrian trails, and can offset up to 80 percent of the costs. He also suggested the recent Safe Routes to School plan the city and school district have worked on may make some of the enhancements more affordable and may also be eligible. He suggested they try to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bundleâ&#x20AC;? several of the grant applications to make the multiple projects more affordable and likely, at a minimal cost to the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these projects are lining up quite QLFHO\ÂľFLW\$GPLQLVWUDWRU-RHO3HFNVDLG 5DVPXVVHQVDLGWKH\ZRXOGQHHGWRĂ&#x20AC;OH for some of the grants soon, possibly by the end of 2013, and they may know the status next year, with construction likely in 2015.

Health advocates say federal website is not the only sign-up method MADISON - A prominent Wisconsin supporter of the Affordable Care Act said there are also other ways to sign up for healthcare coverage besides using a troubled computer system. Criticism of the healthcare.gov website continued over the weekend. “Saturday Night Live” ran a spoof of U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius explaining problems with the computer sign-up. Kate McKinnon, playing Sebelius on “Saturday Night Live,” said, “Millions of people are visiting healthcare.gov, which is good news, but the site was designed for only six users at a time.”

Teen driver safety tip: Parents think teens are safer drivers than they are Increased involvement is important to reversing that disconnect MADISON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It is National Teen Driver Safety Week, and the Wisconsin Department of Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Division of Motor Vehicles wants to remind parents that they must stay engaged and involved long after their teens become licensed drivers. In Wisconsin, teens are involved in fatal crashes twice as often as all other drivers. To reduce teen driver deaths and injuries, all states, including Wisconsin, have enacted graduated driver licensing laws. These laws phase in driving privileges for teen drivers over a period of months. GDL laws save lives; this is seen in the data. In 2011, there were 60 percent fewer fatal crashes involving teen drivers than there were in 2000 when graduated licensing was enacted. However, parents overestimate how much teens obey two key provisions of GDL laws. Results from a recently conducted national survey illustrate this disconnect. â&#x20AC;˘ Nighttime driving: 69 percent of parents believe their teen driver almost always follows restrictions while less than half (48 percent) of teens admit to almost always following this law. Â&#x2021;3DVVHQJHUUHVWULFWLRQVSHUFHQWRISDUHQWVEHOLHYH their teen driver almost always obeys this lifesaving statute while only 43 percent of teens state they almost always follow this restriction.  ´3DUHQWV FDQ UHYHUVH WKLV ZLWK LQFUHDVHG DZDUHQHVV DQGLQYROYHPHQWÂľQRWHVGULYHUTXDOLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQ&KLHI$OLson Lebwohl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Statistics also show that parents who are authoritatively enforcing GDL rules and are highly involved have teens who are half as likely to crash, 71 percent less likely to drive while intoxicated and 30 percent less likely to use a cell phone while driving. Our advice is, know the rules, enforce them and follow up on what your teens are doing behind the wheel. It makes a lifesaving difference.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from WisDOT

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 .

Dr. Ingalls talks Cold Turkey at chili feed E\6KHULOO6XPPHU Leader staff writer WEBSTER - More than 100 people attended a chili feed and author event at the Webster Community Center on Friday, Oct. 25. Local author, as well as local physician, Dr. John Ingalls, told stories and talked about the process of turning Cold Turkey columns written for the InterCounty Leader into a book. 7KH)ULHQGVRIWKH/DUVHQ)DPLO\3XElic Library in Webster hosted the event that was well-attended despite the fact that the Webster Tigers football team was playing in a playoff game that same evening. The event was one of many fundraisers for the friends group that has already raised about $4,000 this year. As can be expected, the funds are

used to support the library by helping purchase equipment, books and other library materials. The second-Saturday book sale at the library is an ongoing fundraiser for the group. The next special fundraiser will be a bake sale at Forts Folle Avoine during Christmas at the Fort on Saturday, Dec. 7. The Friends group has other roles with the library as well. They have an early-childhood literacy program that educates parents on how to provide early literacy experiences at home and gives books, early-literacy information and a baby cap to new parents. The Friends group also hosts author events throughout the year. Ingalls is just one of many local authors that have appeared at author events, where local

authors sign copies of their book, talk about their book and often read from the book. On Friday, Ingalls told stories that are found in his new book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cold Turkey,â&#x20AC;? and some that are not in the book. He also talked about how the Cold Turkey FROXPQFDPHWREHLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWSODFHDQG how the column grew to become a book. He also hinted that a second book is already in the works. Ingalls thinks the stories that make up the Cold Turkey column and book are popular because they are about him - a doctor - doing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;same stupid thingsâ&#x20AC;? others do.

Festival offers a taste of the stage for young local actors

,QWHUYLHZVZLWKWKHDVSLULQJ VWDUVRI|,FKDERG&UDQH}

ST. CROIX FALLS - Festival Theatre closed its fall show last weekend, which starred nine area young people. There were two groups of youth actors in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Festival Live Radio Hour Presents: Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman.â&#x20AC;? Brita Gallagher, of Dresser, took on the entire run, performing with both youth casts. The rest of the youth actors were divided up into two casts. The purple cast featured Jenna Driscoll of St. Croix Falls, Carly Herrick and Katie Herrick RI&XVKLQJDQG6DP+RHĂ HUDOVRRI6W Croix Falls. The blue cast featured Sidrah Edwards of Eureka, Liam Gallagher of Dresser, Elliana Naegelen, also of Dresser, and Claire Scharfenberg of St. Croix Falls. Jenna Driscoll, 11, has been in a number of Festival Theatre shows over the past few years, and while she thinks acting and enjoying theater will always be a part of her life as an interest or a hobby, when she grows up she would like to be a pastry chef. Although the audition process makes Jenna (and most actors) a bit nervous, she thoroughly enjoys performing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love to entertain people and hear their laughter at the funny parts,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenna has a sweet demeanor that translates well to the stage,â&#x20AC;? said Jaclyn Johnson, associate artistic director at Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She brings a gentle kindness to the roles she plays.â&#x20AC;? When Jenna is not busy with rehearsals or performances, she works hard on her school work, especially in her favorite subject, math, and enjoys the lake life at her home on Deer Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My other hobbies are dancing, acting, playing soccer and playing basketball. And I love to be in plays at Festival Theatre.â&#x20AC;? Carly Herrick, 11, loves opening a show, and she also loves the curtain calls. So it will not surprise readers to learn that when she grows up she would like to be a professional actor. When asked what she would like everyone to know about her, Carly said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m autistic and the theater is a great place for me to let my quirkiness out without being afraid of the consequences.â&#x20AC;? Carlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance demanded a lot of energy and focus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She brings bright energy and true playfulness to the stage,â&#x20AC;? said Seth Kaltwasser, arts education coordinator at Festival Theatre and director of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ichabod Crane.â&#x20AC;? Even though acting and working with cast members is fun for Carly, she also applauded the hard work she and her teammates put into each rehearsal, each show, and even outside of those hours they spent a lot of time working on memorization of lines and blocking. She enjoys working with each cast and crew member to make each show special. Katie Herrick,KDVMXVWĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGKHU Ă&#x20AC;UVWSURGXFWLRQZLWK)HVWLYDO7KHDWUH She likes performing each show from beginning to end and the challenge of telling the story to new audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hardest part about being an actor is maintaining your energy through all your performances, even when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done

She also enjoys the teamwork and camaraderie that casts and crew experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like having a sec-

ond family because everyone is so close,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Katie has some great natural instincts onstage,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She listens to her cast mates carefully, and audiences can see her character considering each discovery. That kind of presence is not something that is easily taught.â&#x20AC;? 6DP+RHĂ HU13, enjoys acting with his fellow youth cast members as siblings.

Still, he enjoys becoming a different person for a while, and acting allows him to pretend to be someone HOVH:KHQKHLVDQDGXOW+RHĂ HUZRXOG like to become an architect, where he can use his creativity designing houses and other buildings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam is always willing to participate and have fun with his cast mates,â&#x20AC;? said Kaltwasser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He stays playful throughout the process, which helps the team enjoy the work, and this positivity transfers to audiences as well.â&#x20AC;? Sidrah Edwards, 9, enjoys the people she meets and the friends she makes while working on Festival productions. She also enjoys learning about outer space and drawing, so when she grows up she would like to become an astronomer or a scenic designer. Sidrah loves performing, so the hardest part about every performance is waiting for the cue to go onstage. She added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m bad at waiting and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it!â&#x20AC;? She does enjoy telling her friends and schoolmates that she will be in a play, because it makes her feel famous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sidrah is a joy to work with and a riot to watch onstage,â&#x20AC;? said Kaltwasser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is so funny, and expressive, and she makes very strong choices for such a young actor!â&#x20AC;? Sidrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite book is â&#x20AC;&#x153;BFG,â&#x20AC;? she likes classical music and her favorite season is spring. Elliana Naegelen, 11, enjoys the energy and action that theater inspires. She is not sure exactly what she wants to do someday as a professional, but she does expect that she will continue to enjoy theater throughout her life and that acting will be her favorite hobby. Currently she has a number of hobbies and interests other than theater. Elliana likes to help people, including her frog named Jeremy Fisher, and she loves the color purple. Actors have a lot to think about â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blocking, lines, vocal energy, volume, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;cheating outâ&#x20AC;? toward the audience. To Elliana, remembering to do all these things at the same time is the hardest part of being an actor. But her favorite part is being able to share all the hard work with an audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to help them smile and enjoy themselves,â&#x20AC;? said Elliana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to help them to forget about life and join me in another world for a little while.â&#x20AC;? Johnson noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elliana is a great communicator, and her focus makes for very clear acting moments. She has a natural ability to invite an audience into a story and into a new world, a world which seems real and complete to Elliana, and is so complete and real to the audience.â&#x20AC;? This has been Claire Scharfenbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ă&#x20AC;UVW WLPH RQ )HVWLYDO¡V VWDJH DQG WKH 13-year-old said she has enjoyed it greatly. She hopes to one day continue her love of theater while also pursuing her desire to teach. She enjoys helping people learn, and is particularly interested in the subjects of science and/or music.

Combinations of the same group of friends have been camping in the same desert for more than 20 years. I was invited to come and was told I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to worry about food or equipment. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even entirely sure where I was going. Milo and I just followed along. Andrew and his friends all ride mountain bikes and hop from rock to rock, something they have also been doing for years. Since neither Milo nor I do that, we went hiking by ourselves in the desert, which was less nerve-racking and very beautiful. We walked along a narrow path and, after a while, we came to DQRWKHULQWHUVHFWLQJSDWK$WĂ&#x20AC;UVW,WKRXJKW,PLJKW be able to remember the turns, but eventually decided that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better not trust my memory. So I took three sticks and made an arrow, pointing the way home. Milo and I followed the path all day, with no idea where we were going. We walked along rock formations that looked like giant, curved swimming pools with no water inside. There were sweet-smelling bushes, and snowcapped mountains and brilliant desert sun in my face. Milo chased rabbits and I watched as the tracks disappeared until there were no tracks on the path ahead. Finally, after many turns to the right and to the left, the path we were on simply went around in a small circle and doubled back on itself. The sun was getting low in the sky, so I told Milo this was our cue and we headed back, following one pair of human tracks and one set of dog tracks and, every so often, coming to

We took several hikes and then, at sunset, took one last walk along the edge of a deep ravine that plummeted hundreds of feet below. The sun was falling fast and we arrived at the end of the trail onto a point MXWWLQJRXWRYHUDGHHSFDQ\RQWKHVN\Ă DPLQJSLQN in all directions. We watched until the sun was all the way down. Then I followed Andrew in the growing dark as he navigated this trail that he had taken many times before. I watched his white socks and I turned right when he turned right and I turned left when he turned left. The white socks took a sharp left and, on my right, I saw a sheer cliff disappearing down into darkness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how different my life is now,â&#x20AC;? I told Andrew, as I followed his socks in the dark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never used to follow.â&#x20AC;? I tripped along, following the socks, watching the last pink drain out of the sky. It was a wonderful, easy thing, following the arrows, following the socks, following without leading, following without needing to understand. A giant moon rose, creating shadows on the ground that seemed too bright to be real. I raised one leg and then another, making my shadow friend dance. Then I followed her, all the way home.

Simply asking for someone to pass the potatoes at the supper table was the limit of my public speaking ability at that time. Somewhere along the way I overcame the fear of public speaking and I am not really sure exactly how it happened. When my oldest daughter, Leah, graduated from high school I was asked to deliver the commencement address. Standing on a stage in front of hundreds of people who really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to listen to me anyway was intimidating. They were there to make sure Junior got his diploma and then it was party time. Any speeches by the visiting dignitaries were sure to be drowned out by the giggles and yawns from the crowd.

We know how to love our Packers/ Republicans/union members, but sometimes we forget how â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or why â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to hate the Vikings/liberals/public employees and those who support them.â&#x20AC;? Now, relax. This propagandizing is just all in good fun right? To be fair, surely Vikings/Democrats/conservatives use this sort of language too. And so do Bears fans and Pistons fans, and Minnesota drivers, and deer hunters, DQGORJJHUVDQG'15RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVDQG business owners, and city council members, and terrorists and hate groups. The key step here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how easy this is to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is to separate or distance oneself from another in order to create an â&#x20AC;&#x153;other,â&#x20AC;? an entity that different from you. Once that distinction has been made, this â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherâ&#x20AC;? just naturally becomes less human, more monstrous and much easier to hate or fear.

Rattlesnakes on the border

attlesnakes on the border. Some of you might think this is another JULPWDOHDERXWWKHFDUWHOVDQGJXQĂ&#x20AC;JKWV in the Mexican border states. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not. Most all roads coming north to connect with the freeway have a manned border patrol checkpoint. The object is to deter illegal immigrants and drug smuggling. A good deal of the borderland is ranching country. Two young daywork cowboys had been helping gather cows. They put in a good day and were headed home. Devon was drivinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and twilight was still hanginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on as they headed north on Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hwy. 191. His compadrĂŠ was Duke. They hung out a lot. Each was ridinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; colts for whoever needed it and somehow made the payments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Duke on his rent and Devon on his truck.

They were livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the cowboy dream, which is to be able to support yourself your entire life without ever having to get a job! They also collected live rattlesnakes for a herpetologist. He paid $20 live, $5 dead but with the head intact. Although they were a team, Devon was ophidiophobic â&#x20AC;Ś scairt of snakes! He held the bag. Sure â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nuf, down 191, there in the headlights they saw a rattler crossing the road. Devon was going purty fast as they whizzed by, but Duke said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you see that, Dev, he musta been 15 feet long, probably got 30 to 40 rattles! I never seen one so big, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;less it was the

This â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherâ&#x20AC;? then easily becomes the enemy, and the more pain and misfortune he or she suffers, the better. In any contest, we prefer the side that is more like us. Psychologists refer to this phenomenon as the association principle. The distinguished and proOLĂ&#x20AC;FDXWKRU,VDDF$VLPRYSXWLWWKLVZD\ â&#x20AC;&#x153;All things being equal, you root for your own sex, your own culture, your own locality ... and what you want to prove is that you are better than the other person. Whomever you root for represents you; and when he (or she) wins, you win.â&#x20AC;? The ego-self is clearly at stake. Our prestige rises when our side wins, and it falls when our side loses. We feel real and escalating emotions of joy and pride the higher the perceived stakes. Just listen to the language fans use after a victory. We say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We won!â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re number one!â&#x20AC;? not â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re number one!â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is number one!â&#x20AC;? Unless, that is, our team has just lost, in which case we will often distance and protect our fragile ego-self by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They lost.â&#x20AC;? The devil is in the pronoun. Looked at objectively, this is insane. Seen through the lens of a sports fan or political junky or religious fanatic, however, not only does this make perfect sense, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an admired trait! The more emotionally invested a person, the bet-

ter fan or voter or follower he or she is. The more pain they feel after a loss, the more euphoria they feel after a win. We call these people true and die-hard fans/constituents/believers. In the spirit of full disclosure, I should admit that I am Viking fan/public employee myself. Over the years, this association has given me the unique opportunity to feel very real and physical stress responses during the course of any game, political contest, and professional career â&#x20AC;&#x201C; muscle tension, increased heart rate, sweaty palms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as the emotions of joy and agony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lately, mostly agony. Love me or hate me, it is clear that somewhere deep within our warped and fragile psyches, we believe that the Vikings and public servants everywhere really are me. For many, this makes me less human, more monstrous, easier to kick when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m down. The enemy. Perhaps, however, bigger questions loom like, Who are you? Are we really that much different? Do our associations really make us winners and losers? And, what is it, exactly, that you win, when I lose?

Rasslinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; snakes in broad daylight was bad enough, much less trying to do it in the dark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man,â&#x20AC;? whined Duke, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ol Doc might even pay us more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cause itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so big!

Giant prison spotlights glared, 17 border patrol vehicles cranked up, WKUHZJUDYHOUHGOLJKWVĂ DVKLQJDQGVLrens blaring in hot pursuit! It took them two minutes to have our cowboys pulled over. The big bullhorn was directing them to stay in their vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lemme handle this,â&#x20AC;? said Duke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move a muscle,â&#x20AC;? warned Devon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ah, what the heck, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take this seriously,â&#x20AC;? said Duke as he opened the passenger door and stepped out. ´/LVVHQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHUV,NLQH[SODLQ6HHZH were huntinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rattlesnakes and â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at your shirt,â&#x20AC;? said Devon, a word at a time.

Hayes also tints the paint for Habitat homes and A Brush With Kindness projects. Last year when Habitat painted 40 homes in a week, Hayes made a commitment to put in the time needed to tint all of the paint, which amounted to over 500 gallons. His ability to organize and keep accurate records played a huge part in the success of this project. To date, he has tinted over 700 gallons of paint for Habitat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so grateful for Reeseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commit-

What is our impact? Evaluating Interfaith Caregivers

hanks again for providing transportation to the Retina Center. You provide a wonderful service,â&#x20AC;? writes an 85-year-old woman from Centuria. What is the impact of our program? Every year we try to evaluate that question by conducting a client survey. Many of our clients are older and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use email, so we conducted the survey over the phone. This allows us to get information we need as well as spend a little time visiting. Survey results show our local impact when applying for grants to foundations and United Way St. Croix Valley. What we try to get to the bottom of in our survey is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have we helped people continue to live independently?â&#x20AC;? We contacted about 12 percent of our clients to get an answer to this question. We asked clients to rate each question on a scale of 1-5 where 1 is very poor and 5 is very good. We started by asking a before-and-after question. First we asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of my life before receiving services from Interfaith Caregivers was ___?â&#x20AC;? The average response was 3.28. Our typical client had a neutral quality of life before receiving services. Then we asked the follow-up question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quality of my life now that I receive services from Interfaith Caregivers is ___?â&#x20AC;? The average response was 4.64. Our typical client reported that their quality of life since receiving services from Interfaith Caregivers had increased to very good.â&#x20AC;? Additionally, the following questions returned good results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to remain in my home longer because of services from Interfaith Caregivers,â&#x20AC;? rated a 4.39. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am able to stay involved in my community because of services from Interfaith Caregivers,â&#x20AC;? garnered a 3.95. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more independent because of services from Interfaith Caregivers,â&#x20AC;? rated 4.33. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Interfaith Caregivers has helped me increase my knowledge of other community services available to me,â&#x20AC;? rated 3.82.

The community programs, Cooking With Herbs and Spices, and Cut Back to Keep Ahead, were a real learning experience for those who attended. One of the best suggestions for everyone looking to save when shopping is to have a list and stick to it. Try not to buy what you really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need. Good advice.

Young actors/from page 1 enberg is a busy young lady. She plays the piano, violin and basketball, and gets good grades in school. She noted that keeping up with all her favorite activities and making the time for the theater work (rehearsal, performances and PHPRUL]DWLRQWLPH FDQVRPHWLPHVEHGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWEXWLVZHOO worth the effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do have to make time for the things you enjoy, so this is a minor obstacle,â&#x20AC;? noted Scharfenberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By far, my favorite thing about being in a play is working as a team. The cast for this show is so awesome and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great pleasure to work with them. Putting on a production isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what individuals can do; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about what the whole team can do. And everyone holds each other up, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really great.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Claire is a huge asset to the team,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She brings such bright energy and vibrancy to her performance, and the whole cast is affected by her positive attitude and focus.â&#x20AC;? Liam Gallagher, 11, has appeared in a number of productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liam is such a wonderfully expressive young actor,â&#x20AC;? said Kaltwasser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He tells the story well, always supports his cast mates and works hard, and it all pays off in performance.â&#x20AC;? He will also be taking on a role in the upcoming production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Christmas Story,â&#x20AC;? as the mean and memorable bully, Scut Farkus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scut Farkus is a bully plain and simple,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is always fun to see a nice young actor like Liam try on a character completely opposite to their personality type.â&#x20AC;? Brita Gallagher, 14, who performed with both the blue and purple casts, is no stranger to the Festival stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ZHUHORRNLQJWRĂ&#x20AC;QGDZD\WRJURZWKHWKHDWHUH[SHULHQFH

for some of our seasoned youth actors, and Brita rose to the occasion!â&#x20AC;? said Kaltwasser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She worked almost as hard as the professional actors and was focused and dedicated throughout the process, which resulted in some wonderful storytelling and performing.â&#x20AC;? The experience of performing all the shows really helped Gallagher address some of the challenges of acting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the hardest part is making each performance seem like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m OLYLQJLWIRUWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWWLPHEHFDXVHHYHQWKRXJK,PLJKWKDYH done this show dozens of times, my character hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? she H[SODLQHG6KHQRWHGWKDWZKLOHWKLVLVGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWLWLVDOVRRQH of the greatest rewards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to live my characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in those scenes with other great actors is an extraordinary experience.â&#x20AC;? Gallagher hopes to be able to continue to perform throughout her life, but she hopes to one day become a country vet and perhaps even work overseas in England. As you might guess, she is an animal lover, and has a golden retriever named Eicca. She hopes to one day combine her love of animals with her love of acting, and costar in a show with Eicca. Festival Theatre has many opportunities to engage local youth in the arts. Exposing them as an audience member at one of the many shows is a great experience. Auditions and acting workshops for youth will be offered a couple of times during the year, or sign them up for one of Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creativity Camps next summer. All of this information is available at Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, festivaltheatre.org or by callLQJWKHER[RIĂ&#x20AC;FHDWfrom Festival Theatre

Beginning farmer course to be held in Siren SIREN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers course will be offered locally this fall and winter at the government center in Siren beginning Thursday, Nov. 7. The course comes through the University of Wisconsin Farm and Industry Short Course and is co-hosted by UW-Extension and the NW Graziers Network. Delivery will be done through interactive video and audio. Most of the subject materials apply to both grass-based and conventional farming and cover dairy, beef, sheep and goats. An important aspect of the course is business planning. If desired, participants will be able to

develop their own business plans by the end of the course. Since the course began in 1995, over 500 students have enrolled statewide, and a third have gone on to start their own farms. There are 14 regular class sessions starting Nov. 7. The course is divided into three terms. Classes run from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Thursdays except for one class on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Participants who miss a class may catch it later online. The entire course may also be taken online. Participants may opt to take individual class sessions. The cost of the entire course will be $240 or $15 per session. Sometimes scholarships are

available. Subjects may vary, but usually include starting a livestock business, whether FRQĂ&#x20AC;QHPHQW RU JUD]LQJ JUD]LQJ V\VWHP layout, stray voltage, goal-setting, feeding on pasture, production and marketing of pasture-based beef, goat and sheep dairying, information on beginner loans, enterprise budgets, farm-driven marketing, business plan writing, successful models for business startups, biofuels and farm energy, organic farming, low-cost parlors, out-wintering and environmental stewardship. A brochure for the course will be available. Also watch for press releases in the papers. Additional after-

noon topics of interest may be added by local UW-Extension if requested. Bring your own lunch. Please register by Monday, Nov. 4, if you plan to attend the entire course. To register or obtain further information, contact Otto Wiegand or Kevin Schoessow at UWEX Spooner at 715-6353506, or Dick Cates in Madison, 608-2656437. The course is a collaborative effort between the UW-Center for Integrated Agricultural Studies, UW Cooperative Extension, CALS, DATCP, the Technical Colleges and GrassWorks. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from UWEX

Spooner research station gaden wins second place in national design contest SPOONER â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Spooner Agricultural Research Stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teaching and display garden won second place in its size category of fewer than 10,000 visitors per year in the annual design contest sponsored by All-America Selections, an indeSHQGHQWQRQSURĂ&#x20AC;WRUJDQL]DWLRQWKDWWHVWV new plant varieties. The Spooner garden competed against 16 other entrants from across the country and was the only qualiĂ&#x20AC;HGHQWUDQWLQLWVFDWHJRU\IURP:LVFRQsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award is a direct result of two years of preparation and many hours of work by UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteers and Spooner Ag Research Station staff,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Schoessow, agriculture development educator for Burnett, Washburn and Sawyer counties. For over 15 years, Schoessow and UWExtension Master Gardener Volunteers have partnered with the Spooner Ag Re-

search Station in developing and managing a teaching and display garden. Each year they host multiple workshops out in the garden including the annual Twilight Garden Tour in August to inspire gardeners and educate the public about gardening and the plants that grow best in the area. A portion of this larger garden is an RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDO $OO$PHULFD 6HOHFWLRQV 'LVSOD\ Garden. AAS tests new varieties of plants throughout the United States and Canada and gives awards to the superior ones. The All-America Landscape Design Contest asks participants to incorporate plants that have been selected as AAS winners, past and present, into an attractive display. Each garden is responsible for creating and executing its own design and generating publicity about the 7KH$$6GLVSOD\JDUGHQLVSDUWRIDODUJHUWHDFKLQJDQGGLVSOD\JDUGHQDQGLVXVHGH[WHQVLYHO\ contest.

judges who select the winners. For this contest, the Master Gardener Volunteers transformed the space into eight individual, slightly bermed, triangular beds to replace the traditional mass plantings that had the AAS winners in one long row. Well-maintained lawn paths between the beds added to the beauty and functionality. Each bed included up to 75 percent AAS winners, combined with RWKHUĂ RZHUVDQGYHJHWDEOHVWRFDUU\RXW a theme in each garden, ranging from sunset colors to drama. The annual Twilight Garden Tour held in August was a key factor in the judges decision to award second place to this entry. The judges gave the entry high marks for the bed shapes and design, the collaboration with MGVs, and use of social media in promoting the garden. MGV and garden designer Sharon Tarras designed the overall layout of the annual and AAS garden bed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When designing the layout for this 7KH6SRRQHU$JULFXOWXUDO5HVHDUFK6WDWLRQ7HDFKLQJDQG'LVSOD\*DUGHQKDVEHHQDZDUGHG garden, I envisioned an outdoor classVHFRQGSODFHLQWKHQDWLRQDO$OO$PHULFD6HOHFWLRQV/DQGVFDSH'HVLJQ&RQWHVW URRP VXUURXQGHG E\ Ă RZHULQJ SODQWVÂľ

she said. For the contest, MGVs divided the AAS and annual plants the station receives in the spring for the gardens into various themes based on the plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; color, shape and texture. Then MGVs each chose one of the groupings of plants and designed an individual bed with that selection. The designers and planters included Victoria Zalatoris, KD Childs, Ed Jacobsen, Terrie Strand, Barb Boatman, Megan Smith, Matt Lemke and Tarras. More information about the contest and color photos of all the contest winners is at aaswinners.com/display_gardens/ contest.cfm. The teaching and display garden is located on Orchard Lane, one mile east of Spooner off Hwy. 70. The garden is open to the public for self-guided tours from April through October. Group tours are available upon request. More information can be provided by Schoessow or the research station staff at 715-635-3506 or 800-528-1914. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from UWEX

SCF Elementary Celebrates Red Ribbon Week

ST. CROIX FALLS - Students and staff at the St. Croix Falls Elementary School recently celebrated Red Ribbon Week where the students enjoyed a week of activities focused on making good, healthy choices. As the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fence sign displayed, The Best Me is Drug Free! throughout the week, students learned about how diet and exercise can affect the way they think and feel. Peer pressure, tobacco and saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? were also topics of lessons throughout the month. The week started with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Color our World Drug Freeâ&#x20AC;? to kick off the celebration. On Tuesday, Oct. 22, students brought in canned items, for the local food shelf, to go along with the theme of the day

- We CAN Be Drug Free. Wednesday, students dressed up as a twin for Friends Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Let Friends Make Bad Choices day. Thursday, students were able to bring in a stuffed animal for the day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hugs, Not Drugs. The week concluded with Follow Your Dreams. Students wore either pajamas, college logos or team apparel. The weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closing ceremony focused on hobbies, interests and talents with an anti-drug theme. Several students from the SCF High School shared their anti-drug choices with the elementary students and a number of elementary students, along with one teacher, shared their talents with the other students which was a great way to wrap up the week of making good choices. - submitted

Grantsburg to schedule eighth-grade planning conferences GRANTSBURG - The eighth-grade student and parent educational/career planning conferences are now being scheduled for November through February at the Grantsburg Middle School. These conferences are unlike traditional parent/ teacher conferences. The focus is on each studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal and social growth, their educational and career development and their ninth-grade registration process. Emphasis is placed on a review

of overall academic performance, goals, talents, abilities, interests, learning styles and multiple intelligences, career-assessment results, Job Shadow Day and high school required classes and electives. &RQIHUHQFHVDUHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FDOO\GHVLJQHG for parents to gain insight into their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development. Participation in the conference allows students to gain insight into the direction they are headed for the future.

Parents are key members of the conference team. Conferencing gives parents and students the opportunity to discuss future goals in a positive atmosphere and to begin developing an individual learning plan. Student and parent educational/career planning conferences typically last approximately 45-60 minutes. A conference-schedule letter has been mailed to all parents or guardians of Grantsburg

eighth-graders. If parents or guardians are unable to attend the educational/career planning conference, students will meet privately with the school counselor. Call or email Cara Waters, the middle school counselor, at 715-463-2455, or cara.waters@gk12.net to schedule your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning conference. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; submitted

childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance during the testing peULRG0DNHXSWHVWVDUHGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRGRDQG will result in your child missing valuable class time.

In other words, in the biblical context, the word means the quality of being pointless or futile. The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes used the word often. Evidence points to King Solomon as the author of this often-misunderstood book. I avoided reading Ecclesiastes until I learned the original meaning of the Hebrew word and understood Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true meaning.

By building on this foundation, you can begin to make real progress toward a genuine meeting of the minds. And while it might seem counterintuitive, you might consider seeing a counselor with your ex-husband. An objective third party can steer you away from anger, accusation and other negative forms of communication.

Yet, his downfall came from marrying foreign women whose worship of gods other than the God of Israel enticed him into idolatry. Perhaps he repented of his sin and then wrote his book of wisdom as a way to alert future generations about the dangers of futility. Actually, Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book does speak of futility but only as such thoughts exist without God. Life apart from God, he writes, is utter emptiness. Much of what he writes, in fact, is edifying and EHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOZLWKWKHXQGHUO\LQJPRRG of joy. The Hebrew words for gladness appear numerous times. Those who fear

and worship God should experience the joy that comes in receiving his gifts. The Hebrew word vanity speaks of life as quickly passing rather than as meaningless. Ecclesiastes ends with words we should all heed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.â&#x20AC;? (Eccl. 12:13) Lord, thank you for wise Solomonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reminder that our life is like a vapor to live with joy and meaning. Help us to experience \RXUMR\DVZHORRNEH\RQGWKHĂ HHWLQJGD\V ahead to a time of blessed eternity with you. In Jesusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; name, amen. Mrs. Bair may be reached at sallybair@ gmail.com.

Dr. Greg Smalley, vice president, Family Ministries: First of all, I want to commend you and your wife for going out on GDWHVLQWKHĂ&#x20AC;UVWSODFH)RUPDQ\PDUULHG couples, dating falls by the wayside once children, careers and other responsibilities enter the picture. Their relationships can suffer as a result. For this reason, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d encourage you to do whatever it takes to protect your GDWHVIURPFRQĂ LFWDQGRYHUO\´VHULRXVÂľ GLVFXVVLRQ &RQĂ LFW FDQ EH GHVWUXFWLYH WR\RXUUHFUHDWLRQEHFDXVHLWLQWHQVLĂ&#x20AC;HV emotions. As this happens, it becomes GLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOW WR UHOD[ DQG HQMR\ HDFK RWKHU 7KHFRQĂ LFWEHFRPHVOLNHDUHGVKLUWLQ a load of white laundry, it tends to color the entire experience. If this pattern occurs too often, your mate may lose the desire to do fun things because your dates end up turning â&#x20AC;&#x153;pink.â&#x20AC;? This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about avoidance, of course. You do need to set aside time to discuss the serious issues; just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;date night.â&#x20AC;? It might require staying up a little later after the kids are in bed or even getting up early once in a while. Schedule the conversation when you can provide the necessary attention it deserves. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth noting that I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always taken my own advice on this issue. I remember scheduling a day at Disneyland

with my wife, Erin, but before we even reached the park, I brought up a sensitive issue in the car that resulted in arguing and tears. Needless to say, our date was ruined. You can read all the gory details in our book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take the Date Night &KDOOHQJHÂľ,W¡VIXOORIFRQĂ LFWIUHHGDWing ideas for couples in your shoes! â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Jim Daly is president of Focus on the Family, host of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Focus on the Familyâ&#x20AC;? radio program, and a husband and father of two.
