UP FRONT National Newspaper Week, which runs from Oct. 6-12, promotes the value of community newspapers. The InterCounty Leader strives not only to “hold up the mirror� to our lives but also to provide accurate information in the American tradition of a free, aggressive and responsible press. National Newspaper Week has been celebrated for 73 years, and the Inter-County Cooperative Publishing Association, publishers of the Leader and Washburn County Register, has been around for all of those years - and then some ... 80 years to be exact. As the only cooperative-owned weekly newspapers in America, we celebrate National Newspaper Week in conjunction with October Cooperative Month. And we take this opportunity to thank our loyal readers for their support. - Editor

October is Cooperative Month

Wisconsin: A hotbed of hot cooperatives 3DUWWZRRIÀYHSDUWVHULHV by The Alliance of Polk Burnett Cooperatives We are exceptional, unique. We are also common, one among many, a part of a large whole. We are a cooperative. The Inter-County Cooperative Publishing Association is, as far as we know, the only newspaper co-op in Wisconsin, though there are other printing and publishing companies. It is possible that we are the only co-op newspapers in the country. But Wisconsin has thousands of co-ops of various types—credit unions, electric co-ops, phone co-ops and mutual insurance companies. It also has cooperative grocery stores, dairies, agricultural stores, bookstores, musicians, artists and crafters.

The University of Wisconsin Center for Cooperatives (uwcc.wisc.edu), looking at the economic impact these entities have in the state, counts 262 credit unions, 115 farm supply and marketing stores, 54 housing cooperatives, 40 water/waste facilities, 33 mutual insurance companies, 26 electric co-ops, 24 health care co-ops, 22 day cares, 18 arts and crafts, and entertainment organi]DWLRQVSOXVÀQDQFHHGXFDWLRQPHGLDWHOHSKRQHWUDQVportation and other co-ops. Wages from these entities are about $850 million, with more than 20,000 employees.

Suspicious incident raises questions

by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer OSCEOLA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Details of an incident involving a man possibly impersonating a law ofĂ&#x20AC;FHUDWDORFDOZRPDQ¡VUXUDOKRPHVRXWKRI Osceola have come to the attention of Polk County authorities in recent days, and several hundred others in social media, as well. According to the Polk County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, a woman noticed her dog barking on a recent afternoon sometime around 4:30 p.m., and when she went out to see what was upsetting the dog, she discovered a man peering around her barn, wearing a jacket with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheriffâ&#x20AC;? emblazoned on it, and sporting a gun belt. She asked what he was doing, and the man replied that he was investigating an ATV complaint. The woman then said the man gave no more details as a tan Chevrolet or GMC pickup approached on the roadway, and the man said that was â&#x20AC;&#x153;his partner,â&#x20AC;? and quickly jumped into the passenger side and left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said the driver was wearing plain clothes,â&#x20AC;? stated PCSD Capt. Steve Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of anybody who was doing legiti-

mated (law enforcement) work at that time in that area.â&#x20AC;? Smith said he checked all the location logs RI KLV RIĂ&#x20AC;FHUV GHWHFWLYHV DQG XQGHUFRYHU agents at the time, and nothing matched up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem kosher,â&#x20AC;?

Both Smith and Johnson said the incident smells of a possible burglary-casing incident, DQGWKH\FRQĂ&#x20AC;UPHGWKDWWKHUHKDYHEHHQVHYeral burglaries of private residences in the rural Osceola area, and they also said if it was DQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHURIWKHLUDJHQF\WKHSHUVRQZRXOG KDSSLO\KDYHSURGXFHGLGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQ â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes us remind people to ask for ID DQGQRWWREHDIUDLGWRFDOOGLVSDWFKWRFRQĂ&#x20AC;UP an identity,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said. Smith said the incident was only reported to them last week, but that it happened several days prior to her calling the PCSD. The woman reported the incident on her social media page, which quickly caught on and went viral locally, with several hundred people noting it and asking about the incident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She said it was nagging on her, and she wanted to double-check with us,â&#x20AC;? Smith said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;And yes, we have had a couple of burglaries in that area in recent weeks.â&#x20AC;? 6PLWKVDLGLWLVQRWGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWIRUDQLQGLYLGual to acquire clothing that looks similar to actual law enforcement uniforms and again VXJJHVWHGSHRSOHDVNIRULGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;FDWLRQ â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a one-time deal,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any other reports, but if so, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to hear about them.â&#x20AC;? ,PSHUVRQDWLQJDQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHULVDIHORQ\DQGLV rare in such an incident. According to both Smith and Johnson anyone who is charged with such a crime usually involves pulling VRPHRQHRYHURQWKHURDGZLWKĂ DVKLQJOLJKWV for the thrill, and does not recall someone using a uniform to possibly â&#x20AC;&#x153;caseâ&#x20AC;? a burglary or pretend to be doing an investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unusual,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said, stating that because it was reported several days after the IDFWLWZDVKDUGWRIROORZXSZLWKDQRIĂ&#x20AC;FHU on scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are aware of it and did look into the incident. But at this point, no other reports are similar.â&#x20AC;? The perpetrator was described as being a Caucasian male in his 30s, clean shaven, wearing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheriffâ&#x20AC;? jacket and a gun belt. If anyone has had a similar incident in recent weeks they are asked to call the PCSD at 715485-8300.

Bad guys getting â&#x20AC;&#x153;badder,â&#x20AC;? Sheriff Roland reports by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTYâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Members of the public safety committee expressed concern at the regular Thursday, Oct. 3, meeting over the effect of the decreased number of beds in the county jail and its effect on the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. Sheriff Dean Roland reported that right now the budget looks good, and he praised his staff for doing a nice job managing things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We house about 14-20 prisoners out of county on average,â&#x20AC;? Roland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Believe me, I look at this every day. Right now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK.â&#x20AC;? However, Roland also cautioned the committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing in more bad guys that are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;badderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; than usual, which means longer stays and they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make bond.â&#x20AC;?

The status of the settlement itself has been in dispute, as the county attorney had advised supervisors that they needed to sign off on it. The supervisors had expressed intent to alter the agreements before granting approval. The item was scratched off the county boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sept. 19 agenda at the last minute without ex-

planation. Roland summarized the end result for the public safety committee members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The law clearly states that the settlement was done and signed. The execution of that agreement is done.â&#x20AC;? Roland continued for emphasis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It LVĂ&#x20AC;QLVKHGÂľ Thiex has been assigned to court security and prisoner transport, a position soon to be YDFDWHGE\UHWLULQJRIĂ&#x20AC;FHU7RP+RZH6XSHUvisor Emmett Byrne objected to the assignment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being paid as a deputy but doing the job of someone who is paid less.â&#x20AC;? Roland responded by clarifying that it was his job to make the assignments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I met with Mr. Thiex this morning. The past is past, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving forward.â&#x20AC;? Roland also expressed concern that discussing personnel issues in open session is not appropriate. But supervisors questioned him further regarding the disciplinary measures taken. ´2IĂ&#x20AC;FHU7KLH[LVD%UDG\*LJOLRFRSDQGZLOO remain so for the rest of his career,â&#x20AC;?

Byrne responded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not my desire to keep him,â&#x20AC;? Roland countered. Again, he reminded the committee that it was inappropriate to discuss personnel matters in open session. In a subsequent interview, Roland explained that his decision to keep Thiex off the road was a measure that would protect Thiex, the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department and the county from potential liability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my decision,â&#x20AC;? Roland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But any future sheriff can change that.â&#x20AC;? 9LOODJHGHSDUWPHQWV The conversation continued, focusing on the impact of a shorthanded sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department on the village police departments. Citing what he called an increasing lack of cooperation between the sheriff and police, Supervisor Dale Dresel recounted a recent incident

involving Chief Deputy Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; apparent deciVLRQQRWWRGLVSDWFKD*UDQWVEXUJRIĂ&#x20AC;FHUWRD local call, sending a sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy instead, who arrived too late. Roland was unfamiliar with the incident, but Dresel suggested that it was time to set up a meeting with Roland and the village police departments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love it!â&#x20AC;? Roland shouted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would absolutely love it!â&#x20AC;? However, when asked if he would set up the meeting, Roland refused. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, I will not set it up. But I look forward to it because I have some things to say, too.â&#x20AC;? Dresel urged, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stop the d--- bickering.â&#x20AC;? Then he further accused Roland by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have cost us a lot of money.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No sir!â&#x20AC;? Roland raised his voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have not cost the taxpayers money. I have protected the taxpayers from lying, manipulative RIĂ&#x20AC;FHUV$QG,KDYHWKHSURRIÂľ/DWHU5RODQG added that the subject of taxpayer money is a matter of perspective. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If anything, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve saved this county perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars.â&#x20AC;? 3HUFHLYHGODFNRIFRRSHUDWLRQLQWHUQDOO\ 3XEOLFKHDOWKRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDO0LFKHOOH%DLOH\EURXJKW a matter before the committee regarding animal control issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;HHS, the humane society and the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department historically have worked together on animal control,â&#x20AC;? Bailey introduced the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we were informed by Julie Mead (from the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department) during an active situation that the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofĂ&#x20AC;FHQRORQJHUJHWVLQYROYHGÂľ Roland assured Bailey and the committee that his department is still active in animal control cases. Citing a shorthanded staff, Roland explained that they just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t respond in all cases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just kind of shocked,â&#x20AC;? Bailey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a collaborative effort.â&#x20AC;? Later she added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shorthanded too.â&#x20AC;? After some discussion, it appears that the situation may have been a result of a misunderstanding.

County seeks FCC deadline extension

More delays for communications projects

by Jean Koelz Leader staff writer BURNETT COUNTY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a glitch,â&#x20AC;? Burnett County Emergency Management director Rhonda Reynolds announced in a Wednesday, Oct. 3, public safety meeting, referencing progress on the $4.5 million communications project. On Tuesday, Oct. 2, workers from Joe Daniels Construction, the company hired to prepare tower sites for equipment installation, were turned away at Hertel and Danbury by members of the St. Croix Tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental and natural resources department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised a bunch of questions and objections,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds explained. Issues have to do with compensation, ownership and access. For example, a small shed has to be built to house the generator and supplies. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no precedent for a building on tribal land that is not owned by the tribe. With respect to access, it is tribal policy for non-tribal members to be

escorted by tribal staff while on the reservation. The tribe and the county will need to coordinate all third-party provisions of installation, maintenance and even snow removal. The objections were completely unexpected, as agreements were signed in 2011 and are valid for at least 10 years from the Nov. 14 signature date. According to the Memorandum of Understanding, signed by county board Chair Don Taylor and tribal council Chair Stuart Bearheart, it is clear that the county was authorized to install and perform maintenance on equipment. However, the agreement also mandates that all visits were to be coordinated through the tribeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental protection agency, and it is not clear whether the department was SURSHUO\QRWLĂ&#x20AC;HG(QYLURQPHQWDOQDWXral resources director Katie Stariha could not be reached for comment prior to press time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My recommendation is that this be discussed and resolved at the highest levels,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds told the committee. Reynolds recommended a conversation take place between Don Taylor and current

tribal council Chairman Lewis Taylor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect it will be that big of a delay,â&#x20AC;? (Don) Taylor said. However, a week has passed and the two have yet to talk. The development is just one more in a string of project delays. According to Reynolds, the county has already begun contingency planning. On the recommendation of its consultant, G.J. Therkelsen, the county has prepared an application for deadline extension from the FCC. With the federal government shutdown, it is unknown whether such a request can even be processed in time, but the county was told when it received its last extension (from Jan. 1, 2013 to Jan. 1, 2014) that it was the last extension available. Following that, the FCC is able to DVVHVVĂ&#x20AC;QHVRISHUGD\DQGHYHQ revoke the license altogether. Further information could not be obtained because the FCC has shutdown all services except to respond to emergencies and network outages. 7KH)&&¡VHIIRUWVWRPDNHPRUHHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW use of the broadcast spectrum began in 1988.

The county has been working for several years with a consultant to design and implement an upgraded system involving nine communications towers and an updated call center. However, local municipalities and service providers have been frustrated by the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow progress toward meeting the FCC requirements. Reynolds was able to report some good news. Construction can now begin on the Mosaic tower in Grantsburg, which was held up due to a state requirement for all tribes to sign off on an agreement.

And a request for proposal to redesign the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dispatch center has been published with a Nov. 1 deadline.

Green lights for Polk County proposed budget

Multiple meetings held as budget heads for county board

by Gregg Westigard Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The 2014 proposed Polk County budget will head for the county board next Tuesday, Oct. 15, for preliminary approval and publication. The recommended budget was presented to the supervisors by county Administrator Dana Frey in early September, probably the earliest 2014 county budget in the state. Since then, the county governing committees have been reviewing the proposal. In the past week, every county committee has met, and every committee has recommended approval of the department budgets under their jurisdiction, with no changes. Tuesday, Oct. 8, was an especially busy day for committee meetings, with three committees, human services, land information and public health, all meeting at

the same time of the morning in different rooms in the government center building and forcing Frey and the press to hustle from meeting to meeting. Later that day, the Golden Age Manor Board also met. Each committee met early in the month to review the budget before the county board meeting. While all gave a green light to that 2014 budget, there were some other committee actions. The highway committee, last Thursday, Oct. 3, endorsed a proposed street project in the city of St. Croix Falls, a reconstruction of Vincent Street north from Hwy. 8 and of Maple Street up the hill toward the school. The project is planned for 2015, and the city was asking for FRXQW\ EDFNLQJ QRW Ă&#x20AC;QDQFLDO KHOS DV LW applies for grants. The property committee, meeting on Monday, Oct. 7, heard details on the proposed Indianhead Country Veterans Memorial, which may be built on countyowned land along the Apple River. The committee also approved the third Polk County property auction which will start in late October. A full story on that sale

will be in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper. The Golden Age Manor Board heard the two Danas, Frey and GAM Administrator Reese, review the nursing home Ă&#x20AC;QDQFHV SHUVRQQHO FRVWV FRQWUROV DQG building maintenance status. More details on that will also be in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper. The land information committee meeting Tuesday was the latest step in a threeyear process to rewrite the Polk County land-use ordinances. The process, under way for three years, almost went off the road during the meeting when a section

of the Wisconsin statutes was explained which might have made all that process void. The situation has probably been resolved, but the complicated review is nearing a conclusion of stage one. Some LVVXHV KDYH EHHQ LGHQWLĂ&#x20AC;HG IRU IXUWKHU discussion, with vocal advocates for the different views ready to state their case. The proposed ordinance changes will eventually be presented to the public for a series of hearings. Again, this is a developing story with more details in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper.

New Amish neighbors in Frederic area

Greeted at haystack supper Saturday

by Gregg Westigard Leader staff writer FREDERIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Five Amish families have moved into the Frederic area over the past year. The families are living on farms in rural Clam Falls and Bone Lake. People may notice their black horse-drawn carriages on the local roads. The Amish are a branch of the Mennonite Church known for their traditional way of living which includes plain dress and nonownership of automobiles. Last Saturday, Oct. 5, the families hosted a haystack supper at Hackerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lanes in Frederic to feed the community and raise funds for work on their schoolhouse. From 4 to 8 p.m. area people ate a hearty meal topped off by a piece of homemade pie. The Amish hosts prepared 57 pies and served them all. They hope for a bigger turnout for their next haystack supper in November. The Amish are known as good craftspeople and construction/carpentry work had been drawing them to this area from their previous homes near New Auburn.

Letters We are to blame The Tea Party and their allies are willing to throw us all overboard with their tea, so passionate are they in their beliefs. They have managed to do what the feared terrorists could not do - shut down a portion of our government. Of course, they will blame the Democrats, for refusing to give in to their political blackmail. What else can you call it, but blackmail, when they say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Repeal or modify this law (Obamacare), or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hold the whole nation hostage.â&#x20AC;? Who is to blame for this kind of Washington deadlock? We are! These are the representatives for whom we voted, each still egged on by a host of encouraging supporters. When it comes to government, I fear we basically wind up getting that for which we have asked. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stop asking for these people. Vote them out! Otherwise, we have no reason to complain about Washington gridlock. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting exactly what we deserve. Pastor David Almlie Frederic

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember Some people are unaware that the local national park, the St. Croix National Wild and Scenic Riverway, is closed to the public because of the federal government shutdown. Wild River Outfitters has complied with the National Park Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closure of access to the river. Although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the riverway closure and the negative effect it has on my businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bottom line, I know that the park service staff is just doing their job as directed. I know these people; they work, live and send their kids to schools in our communities. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold park service staff responsible for the government shutdown and the subsequent closing of the riverway. However, I do hold our representatives in Washington responsible for the federal government shutdown and the resulting NPS closure of the riverway. Most of that responsibility lays at the feet of the Republicans in the House of Representatives. Heading that list is House Speaker John Boehner. Next on the list are Tea Party Republican representatives. One such representative is our Rep. Sean Duffy, representing the 7th District in Northwest Wisconsin. Duffy has consistently voted with Tea Party Republicans that are currently holding the rest of government and the nation hostage. He and his Tea Party cohorts are the ones responsible for the government shutdown and any subsequent national fallout. Why the impasse? In a nutshell, the most recent Boehner/Tea Party demand is: The president and Senate Democrats must negotiate with the House Repub-

licans on spending cuts to entitlement programs (i.e. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) before the House will pass a budget. In previous weeks, the House Tea Party demand was that the Affordable Health Care Act, Obamacare, must be stopped or severely amended in order to pass the budget bill. Have you ever heard of moving the goalposts in the middle of the game? I wonder where they will move them next? If these issues are so important to the Tea Party House Representatives and supported by their constituents, I suggest that they bring them up in the House in separate bills and vote on them on their own merits. Right now, they are holding the country hostage by demanding that these nonrelated issues be linked to the budget bill. When the next election comes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsible for this mess and the negative effect it had on my business and livelihood â&#x20AC;Ś and the nation. I hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember, too. Next time, remember to vote for a progressive that has your and the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests in mind rather than for someone that has only limited rigid views and their own careers in sight.

Wisconsin keeps working This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news was dominated by the inability of our leaders in Washington, D.C., to come to an agreement on a budget, resulting in a government shutdown. Combined with the shutdown of the Minnesota state government two years ago, we know that gridlock can be an all-too-common problem for those seeking a budget agreement. Given the current situation in our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital and the history in our neighboring state, it is all the more reason to take pride in Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition of working together and enacting commonsense reforms. Not only have the past three state budget bills been passed and signed into law on time, but our state also has sound mechanisms in place that allow us to avoid government shutdowns.

Our biggest opportunity is our schools, which are 55 percent of our property tax. Our enrollments have been downward for years and the Internet will accelerate the decline. We need to ask why we are not merging school districts now like Frederic/Luck and Webster/Siren. Doing that reduces administration costs by over $100,000, each, to start. 6. Budget reserves at the school district and county levels need a review and a downward adjustment. An example of $1 million in annual expenses says a reserve of two times that is ample. That means 100 percent over budget protection. Remember, they can adjust their tax dollars to us yearly. Those current reserves need to reduce our current taxes downward yesterday. The University of Wisconsin had a $650 million reserve and is still increasing costs to our students. I question the ethics of all government/school reserves. 7.

Certification fees for health reform navigators draw critcism

by Shamane Mills Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criticism about the fees paid by those helping the uninsured get coverage under health reform. Some say they create barriers, but state RIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOVVD\RYHUDKXQGUHGSHRSOHKDYH paid for a required exam taken by navigaWRUVDQGFHUWLĂ&#x20AC;HGDSSOLFDWLRQFRXQVHORUV Brad Gingras runs the Concentrated Employment Program, a workforce development agency in Northwest Wiscon-

sin. That agency got a federal navigator grant to help people sign up for private health insurance on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known as the exchange. Gingras says they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect their six navigators would have to pay $39 for a background check, $150 for an online training course and $75 for an exam. Gingras says that the exam location also posed a problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in very rural Northwest Wisconsin,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty much anywhere we need to go is a pretty far drive.â&#x20AC;?

Gingras says their funding is limited. Their agency and two others are sharing $285,000 of a federal navigator grant to serve 27 counties. The fees are an additional expense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is if we want to be successful in our grant, these are costs we have to incur.â&#x20AC;? The state fees are creating a stir among those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay them.

Veterans memorial proposed in Polk County

Hwy. 8 site would honor all who have served

said there are 4,000 vets now living in Polk County and possibly 40,000 in Northwest Wisconsin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will recognize them all,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. A proposed site for the memorial is the old Country Dam property at the Apple River on Hwy. 8. The memorial would be on the property along the river just north of the motel on land Polk County has owned for several years. Martin said the memorial project is in the initial stages of planning and fundraising, and the presentation was for information only.

by Gregg Westigard Leader staff writer BALSAM LAKE - Polk County and Northwest Wisconsin have sent many people off to serve our country. A memorial is now being proposed to honor those who have served in the armed forces of the country over the many years. The Indianhead Country Veterans Memorial would be a lasting way to remember those who have lost their lives in service, to all who have served and to the families who have provided support to the veterans in the past and do so today. Members of the Memorial Association presented an outline of their proposal to the Polk County Property Committee Monday, Oct. 7. Jerry Martin, lieutenant colonel, retired, U.S. Army, was the spokesperson for the group. He said that the memorial will remember all veterans from all wars, with their names inscribed and, when possible, their stories told. The memorial will also be a way to make people aware of those who come back injured, whose who survived but are disabled. Martin

The marketplace, simplified

by Danielle Moe Special to the Leader SHELL LAKE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For the next six months individuals can call or log on to apply for coverage from the health insurance marketplace. Opened on Oct. 1, the marketplace gives people the opportunity to weigh coverage options and get coverage. Open enrollment is the time period when anyone can buy or change their insurance coverage. This year the open enrollment period includes the new marketplace. For those who enroll in a marketplace plan, coverage can begin as soon as Jan. 1, 2014.

By providing information about your household size and income you will learn if you can get lower costs based on your income, compare coverage options, and if you

qualify for free or low-cost coverage. Plans in the marketplace cannot deny you coverage based on pre-existing conditions, and cannot charge women more than men for the same plan. There are four categories of insurance plans in the marketplace, bronze, silver, gold and platinum.

Private companies insure the plans listed on the marketplace, but your state or federal government manages the marketplace. The state of Wisconsin does not manage its own marketplace, and residents must use the federal marketplace. Regardless of where you live anyone can apply using the federal marketplace on healthcare.gov. or calling 800-318-2596.

next week. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have touchdowns called back by penalties if we expect to continue to win games,â&#x20AC;? Kroll said. The Tigers defense was on throughout the night, giving up just 81 yards of total offense. Alex Spafford completed two passes for 42 yards, while the Tigers amassed 281 yards rushing. Aaron Dietmeier had 114 yards on 18 carries and one touchdown. Ryan Curtis had 93 yards on 24 carries, and Hopkins had 74 yards on 14 carries. Hopkins had both catches for a total of 42 yards. Shawn Stevens recorded the Tigers only sack on the evening, and Cliff Benjamin, Curtis and Vinny Larson led the defense with 5.5 total tackles. Shawn Stevens had 3.5, Max Norman, three, Brett Richison, 2.5, and Dietmeier, Lance Preston and Dade McCarthy each had two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We gave up as many yards on the opening kickoff as we did on defense the entire night, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news for our defense, but our kickoff team needs to be an area of improvement as the playoffs approach,â&#x20AC;? Kroll said.

*UDQWVEXUJ6W&URL[)DOOV by Scott Hoffman Leader staff writer GRANTSBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Grantsburg came out of its shell and really defended the home court Thursday, Oct. 3, for a big homecoming week win, taking down a St. Croix Falls team that they had dropped a match to earlier in the season. The Pirates won by scores of 25-8, 25-11 and 25-13. St Croix never seemed to get on a roll, with the Pirates taking advantage of them like an opponent on the ropes.

Facing a fourth down with 5 yards to go from near the Eagles 20-yard line, the Falcons were stuffed at their line of scrimmage and an elated Eagles football team did what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been doing all night long â&#x20AC;&#x201C; playing solid defense and keeping their playoff hopes alive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defense played very well,â&#x20AC;? said Eagles coach Dave Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made some big stops in our own red zone.

However, due to the fact that the Saints were not part of this conference, their players were not eligible to earn any conference points, individually or as a team. We hope that next year will be a different story as the Saints ended this season with seven players, three of which will be returning players next year. The team includes seniors Hayley Cermin, Kamille Flandrena, Megan Swenson and Lindsey Wondra; junior McKenzie Katzmark; and freshmen Taylor Jacobson and Breanna Wondra.

Using leaves for mulch and compost can also enrich the health of lawns and gardens, save money on fertilizer and save municipalities money on yard waste collection.

Be sure to maintain a mix of â&#x20AC;&#x153;brownsâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fallen leaves, dead plants, dried grass clippings, soil paper, sawdust and small branches, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;greens,â&#x20AC;? fresh grass clippings, green plants and food scraps including coffee grounds.

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 .

As luck would have it I remember sitting in the radiation department waiting area, feeling pretty alone. I was beginning to rethink my decision to go by myself for 36 days of treatments. I looked around the room. Several other women were also sitting by themselves and I realized I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone in my decision to make these unwanted trips unaccompanied by family or friends. Over the next few weeks the faces of these women would become familiar to me. We would smile politely to each other as each was called in for zapping, and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give a nod on our way out as if to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, see you tomorrow.â&#x20AC;? This limited interaction continued without any conversation occurring between us day in and day out. We were polite but kept our distance. Our hesitation to speak with one another was denial, pure and simple. If we actually started talking the topic was sure to turn to one we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hear about at all. We just wanted to get our treatment, get on our way, and get back to a normal life. One day when something went amiss with one of the X-ray machines, patients used to getting in and out on schedule became impatient. Having to wait was delaying that notion we could keep everything normal and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. Well, the old saying of misery loves company started to apply real fast. Soon women all around the waiting area, who for weeks had only known each other in passing, were talking to one another and making connections. Little did I know then, the seven women including myself, who as luck would have it, happened to sit down next to each other that day, would become such a cherished group of friends. ,¡PQRWVXUHZKRZDVĂ&#x20AC;UVWWRFRPSODLQ

&RUQHU Priscilla Bauer about the delayed treatments but most likely it was Shari, who to this day remains the most outspoken of our informal support group that came into being that day. Yes, it must have been Shari. With that inquisitive mind of hers always needing to know the who, what, where, when, why, and how from everyone, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often thought she should have been the reporter instead of me. We began by exchanging names and where we were from, with bits of personal of personal information following. We quickly discovered three of us had January birthdays, two of us knew the same woman, two of us had ties to Burnett County, and oh yeah, all of us had breast cancer. That day a bond was formed and we became the R-Gang. Now, instead of waiting alone for our treatments we sat together, staying until each of us was done with our daily dose of R. As the dates of our last treatment grew closer one of us (most likely Shari) said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, we should keep doing this.â&#x20AC;? We all laughed. No one wanted to keep doing THIS. But the idea of getting together to talk was something we did want to do. So we made plans to have lunch the next month to celebrate everyone being done with their treatments. Now hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where my recollection of how the R-Gang came to be gets really good. You know how you say to someone,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to get togetherâ&#x20AC;? and it never happens? Well, guess what, our lunch did happen and the lunches have kept happening. This summer we celebrated 13 years of caring and sharing lunches together. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some bumps (but thankfully no more lumps) along the way, experiencing deaths of family and friends (including our beloved R-Gang girl, Sherri Belanger, so young and beautiful, who left us shortly after the group formed) changes in jobs, living spaces and relationships. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some bright spots, too, new adventures and ventures, from sailing off to exotic isles, to starting new businesses, to getting married (Congrats Teri!). And through all the life changes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stayed faithful to that promise we made years ago in that waiting room, to get

together as often as we can. We hardly ever mention breast cancer now when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re together even though it is what brought us together. These days we talk about the good things in our lives, family, friends and fun. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written several articles about my breast cancer diagnosis in 2000 including a few mentioning the R-Gang but in celebration of our 13th year together ,WKRXJKWLWRQO\Ă&#x20AC;WWLQJWRZULWHDERXW them again. Maybe it was just luck or coincidence we ended up sitting next to each other in that waiting room. I like to think everything happens for a reason. Still, I am feeling very lucky I have the R-Gang for continued support and friendship. And very lucky, too, we are still surviving and thriving to get together.

Great strides have been made in early detection and treatment of breast cancer, and todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survivors are living proof. Healthy lifestyle choices like a low-fat diet rich in fruits and vegetables, regular physical activity and avoidance of cigarettes and excessive alcohol are all important prevention steps.

Habitat launches Buck for Luck campaign ST. CROIX FALLS - Wild Rivers Habitat for Humanity celebrated World Habitat Day this year on Monday, Oct. 7, by launching a Buck for Luck campaign. Support Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to end poverty housing by donating a dollar and getting a pinup with your name posted. Pinups are available at Wayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foods and the Bon Ton Tavern, both in Luck. The campaign will run until Monday, Oct. 21. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pitching in a buck to help build a home for a family who needs it is a fun and easy way to support Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, including the home we are building in Luck right now with the Taylor family,â&#x20AC;? said Eric Kube, executive director of WRHFH. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope lots of our supporters will stop in to Wayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or the Bon Ton to show their support.â&#x20AC;? On World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity International joined the United Nations-designated day to recognize the basic need for adequate shelter around the world. Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observances began with the International Day of Prayer on Sunday, Oct. 6, to place in the hearts and minds of people everywhere the idea that poverty housing is unacceptable and to keep faith at the center of a call to justice. Adequate shelter is a critical foundation for breaking the cycle of poverty. In addition, to commemorate World Habitat Day,

Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30th-annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project will be held Oct. 6-12 in Oakland and San Jose, Calif.; Denver, New York City and Union Beach, N.J. Other ways to join the fight against poverty housing locally include volunteering at a build. Volunteers are needed in Amery, Luck and Grantsburg. Volunteers are also needed to staff the ReStores in St. Croix Falls and Spooner. For more information, go to wildrivershabitat.org or call 715-483-2700. For the Spooner ReStore, call 715-635-4771. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; submitted

I looked around the room at all the heads nodding, yes, they had always wanted to write, my fellow students agreed. I wondered if they always would.

Recently, while I was listening to a radio station, they were talking about a bride who sent an extensive page-long list of preparation steps for her bridesmaids.

y oldest daughter is playing high school volleyball these days. While talking about her experiences on the court, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m struck by how much she attributes her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance to something called momentum. Shifts in momentum: athletes, sports fans and analysts talk about this all the time. But what is it exactly? Is it real or magic? Truly experienced or just imagined? Assuming it is real, is there any way to capture and transfer this â&#x20AC;&#x153;witchcraftâ&#x20AC;? to other areas of our lives outside of athletics? Before we dig in too deeply here, let PHĂ&#x20AC;UVWVD\WKDWZKHQLWFRPHVWRWKH concept of momentum, I am of two minds. I both love it and hate it.

SCRMC to take part in pilot project on emergency department transfers ST. CROIX FALLS - Starting this fall, St. Croix Regional Medical Center will be part of a national pilot project for small rural hospitals focusing on transfers from the emergency department. The project is supported by MetaStar and funded through the Centers for Medicare and 0HGLFDLG 6HUYLFHV 7KH 2IĂ&#x20AC;FH RI 5XUDO Health is also working in partnership on this effort. Wisconsin is one of eight states participating in the pilot project. While emergency care is important in all hospitals, it is particularly critical in rural hospitals where the distance from urban medical centers makes the effective triage, stabilization and transfer of patients essential.

Luck special ed students go to the ranch

by Greg Marsten Leader staff writer MILLTOWN - It was perfect afternoon for a trip to the ranch for nine Luck Schools special education students, who spent the day on Oct. 1 at the Otter Creek Ranch, outside Milltown. The children got a whole afternoon on the ranch, where they had a chance to

try their hands at horseback riding, petting goats, sheep, mini horses, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits and more. They also took several wagon rides around the miles of trails at the ranch. The event included nine special education students, ages 8-12, who had several teachers and school staff on hand to aid in a variety of activities around the ranch. Some of the children were initially a

little wary of the animals, but warmed up nicely to the atmosphere and sounds of the ranch. Several of the kids enjoyed relaxing, therapeutic individual rides, some of whom had never been on a horse before. One of the children who normally uses a wheelchair even had the chance to ride a horse and seemed to enjoy every minute it. The ranch

trip is a repeat of a similar event last year, and was the brainchild of several of the teachers involved with the special education program. Otter Creek Ranch offered their site without charge, and assisted with the event, which was a huge hit with the children, judging by the smiles.

Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge exceeds goal OSCEOLA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Osceola Community Church hosted the second-annual Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge Sunday, Oct. 6. The event is the result of second-grader Katelyn Knappâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream to bring families together for a fun day and to raise donations to help people in need in the community. Last year the event raised enough money to cover the co-pays for a local man to have surgery and a get new set of

teeth. The man had gone 20 years without teeth and in pain from a serious car accident. This year, Katelyn chose to join forces with People Loving People Inc. of Dresser. The event featured a family walk, food, a ERQĂ&#x20AC;UHV¡PRUHVDQGJDPHVIRUWKHFKLOdren. For a freewill donation, Marcia Carlson and Ellie Lindh also provided horse rides for the children. Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal was

to raise $1,200 to pay one month of travel costs for People Loving People Inc. to pick up food from several Trader Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locations in Minnesota. Through the generosity of the community, and especially the members of Osceola Community Church, Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge exceeded that goal and was able to give $1,459.22 to the food ministry.

Katelyn hopes to continue the tradition and each year come alongside an individual, family or organization in the FRPPXQLW\WKDWKDVDVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;FQHHG$Q\one still wanting to donate to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause or who has a need that could be met by next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge should contact Pastor Larry Mederich at Osceola Community Church. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with submitted information

Rock climber to share story at Luck Library LUCK - High-altitude climber and author Isabel Suppe will be presenting a program at the Luck Public Library, Thursday, Oct. 24, at 7 p.m. She is a German national who has been climbing since she was 6 years old.

Blowing out the anchors, he pulled Suppe, who was attached to him, down as well. After alternately free-falling and skidding more than 1,100 feet, they came to rest at the bottom of the mountain face miraculously still alive. Although horribly injured, both Suppe and Wiesenekker were stranded alone on the mountain.

CHURCH NEWS become. Often, a spiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s web ends up being perfectly symmetrical, beautiful to behold. Spiderwebs are vulnerable to wind and weather as well as to the accidental GDPDJHLQĂ LFWHGE\ELJJHUFUHDWXUHV humans included. Spiders regularly spend time repairing their webs, strengthening them in the process. We could compare our lives to that of a spiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s web.

In many homes, the God strand stands alone, like an add-on part of the package. In such cases, we may consider church attendance, perhaps a twominute morning devotional and maybe even a monthly Bible study as enough to help us through lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems. How can we think of God as an addon when we consider his great and sacULĂ&#x20AC;FLDOORYHIRUXV",PDJLQHKRZVWURQJ our web of life would be if he were the very foundation and all our other lifestrands dependent on him. Our constant thanks and praise alone bring blessings to our families, jobs and spouses.

Scientists have learned that spiderweb silk, called glue, rivals steel in its strength. We could call Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word and Spirit the glue that not only holds our spiritual life together, but gives us the strength we need daily to live according to his plan, which is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind.
