SHELL LAKE — The Washburn County Board of Supervisors invites youth in grades 9, 10 and 11 who are residents of Washburn County to apply to serve as youth representatives on the county board. This initiative provides Washburn County youth an opportunity to play a valuable and active leadership role in the governance of the county while enhancing their interest in the operation of local government and civic participation. Two young people will be selected to serve a one-year term, April 2012–April 2013, and three will be selected to serve a two-year term, April 2012–April 2014. “Youth who are currently serving in these roles have found their experience to be very educational and a good use of their time. County board supervisors have been very supportive and recognize the value of having the voice of young people on the board,” said Annette Haas, 4-H youth development educator in Washburn County. Application materials are online at washburn.uwex.edu/4-h-youth-development/ or contact the Washburn County UW-Extension Office in Spooner, 715-635-4444.

WASHBURN COUNTY – In our first edition of 2012, we will complete our Year in Review, where the stories, photos and headlines of 2011 from July through December are encapsulated and revisited.

July

A storm passed through the area producing 100-mph winds causing power outages and downed trees. An 11-year-old Minnesota girl was pronounced dead at the Spooner hospital after a tree fell on her while she was camping in the Town of Dewey with her family. Isaac Otterson, Shell Lake eighth-grader, attended EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh. Mary Ellen Ryall’s book, “My Name is Butterfly” was published. Theatre in the Woods area youth presented “Pirates of Penzance” at the Quam. James Pinter, 52, Sarona, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of his brother, John Pinter, 54, Sarona.

Shell Lake unveiled its new Web site that offered more features, including the city council agendas and minutes for public viewing. The Web address is shelllakewi.com Luke Harrington caught a 28-inch, 8-pound walleye while fishing on Shell Lake. The fish was caught with a bobber and a leech with ultralight 6-pound test line.

IOWA - The smallest of margins - eight votes - gave GOP front-runner Mitt Romney a victory over dark horse Rick Santorum in the Iowa caucuses Tuesday night, Jan. 3, with Ron Paul finishing third. It was the opening contest for the GOP presidential nomination. Romney earned 30,015 votes and Santorum 30,007 votes. The losers Tuesday were Newt Gingrich in fourth, Rick Perry in fifth and Michele Bachmann in sixth. The outcome offered Santorum an opportunity to emerge as the alternative to Romney as the race moves to New Hampshire and South Carolina without Gov. Rick Perry, who announced that he was returning to Texas to assess his candidacy. “The Iowa caucuses did not deliver a clean answer to what type of candidate Republicans intend to rally behind to try to defeat President Obama and win back the White House,” noted an article Wednesday in the New York Times. Which GOP candidate, if any, do you support? See the Register’s poll question below. - with information from Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and New York Times

This week’s poll question:

Which GOP presidential candidate do you like? 1. Mitt Romney 2. Rick Santorum 3. Ron Paul 4. Other 5. I’m won’t vote GOP 6. I’m backing Obama

Former jail administrator sent to jail

Inmate helps foil Bruk Sweeney’s plan to get money in check cashing kickback scam

by Jessica Beecroft

WASHBURN COUNTY – Former Washburn County Jail Administrator Bruk L. Sweeney, 38, Comstock, was sentenced Wednesday, Dec. 21, after being found guilty of misconduct in public office. Sweeney, who was the jail administrator for four years, pleaded guilty by a no-contest plea to three misdemeanors, including theft in a business setting of less than $2,500, fraudulent data alteration and resisting/obstructing an officer. He was found guilty of a felony Bruk Sweeney charge - misconduct in public office. Sweeney will serve 30 days in jail, complete 500 hours of community service, be on two years’ probation and pay $749 in fines. The sentence was handed down by Judge Kenneth Kutz of Burnett County. On Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010, Sweeney was first arrested on one count of theft and six counts of misconduct in public office. He was convicted of three counts of misconduct in public office and two counts of forgery (felony Class H charges). According to authorities, when inmates

are released they are given a check for any money in their jail accounts, and Sweeney was allegedly giving them checks for more than they were entitled to. He then asked them to cash the checks and return the extra money to him. One of those inmates ended up exposing the operation by asking questions of a teller at the Shell Lake State Bank. Sheriff's Investigator Austin Parenteau received a call Thursday, Oct. 28, 2011, from bank President David Haroldson, who said one of the bank's tellers had suspicions about a man who was asking quite a few questions about the checks he was cashing from the Washburn County Jail Huber/Electronic Monitor Account. The male was later identified as Bryce R. McKinley, 20, Shell Lake. McKinley asked if the bank cashed quite a few of these types of checks and if they were in these large amounts. McKinley also videotaped everything, including their transactions at the bank, telling authorities he and his wife were unsure of what Sweeney was up to. McKinley videotaped the former jailer meeting them outside the courthouse and receiving the envelope with the money in it. This set off a number of flags that later proved several inmates were told to cash checks for Sweeney. Sweeney went as far as picking up some inmates that were released and driving them to the Shell Lake State Bank in Spooner to cash the checks for him. Sweeney would wait outside or sometimes bring them through the drive-thru at the bank to get the cash, according to the criminal complaint.

Washburn County among many counties to not budget for recall

Money from contingency fund may be used if needed

WA S H B U R N / B U R N E T T / P O L K COUNTIES – While some counties statewide budgeted for an extra election this coming year, notably the expected election next spring to recall Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, Washburn County is among many counties in the state that did not budget for the recall. Many Wisconsin counties have not budgeted for the recall elections that could include some state senators, although no local senators are targeted for recall. Some counties did not budget for recalls because they were not guaranteed to be held at the time budgets were finalized, and most clerks will likely ask their county boards to allocate the money at the proper time. Washburn County, like other counties, may dip into their contingency funds to pay for the recall expenses. The Register will follow up on the issue in coming weeks. Washburn County was not part of last year’s recall elections, but neighboring Burnett and Polk counties are part of the 10th State Senate District, which saw in-

cumbent Sheila Harsdorf fend off a recall challenge from Shelly Moore. Both counties have budgeted for a recall election this year. Polk County Clerk Carole Wondra said five elections are budgeted for, two primaries, two general elections and a recall. There are more and more regulations creating more expenses for elections, she noted. She estimated the recall election will cost Polk County approximately $20,000. Burnett County Clerk Wanda Hinrichs said four elections have been budgeted for in her county – a spring primary and spring and fall general elections, plus a recall. She said the county’s share for the recall would be about $10,000, which doesn’t include cost to municipalities. The Green Bay Press-Gazette says Brown County will need $200,000 for costs including printing ballots to publishing legal notices in newspapers. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported last week that the group in charge of the recall petition drive against Walker had gathered 507,000 petition signatures, of the required 540,000, with less than a month to go before the deadline. - Gary King with information from Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and Green Bay Press-Gazette

The home of Katie Jo Jensen and Dustin Danielson was burned to the ground on Friday, Dec. 23. – Photo by Jessica Beecroft

by Jessica Beecroft SHELL LAKE – On Friday, Dec. 23, the home of Katie Jo Jensen and Dustin Danielson was totally destroyed by fire. All of the family’s belongings were lost, but their family dog was not harmed, according to Anthony Richter, Katie Jo’s father. According to the Shell Lake Fire Chief Keith Dahlstrom, the Shell Lake Fire Department was dispatched for a fully engulfed structure fire at the intersection of Heisterkamp Road and Hwy. 253 that was called in by a passerby at approx. 2:15 a.m. While en route firefighters were notified by a Washburn County Sheriff’s deputy at the scene that no occupants were in the structure.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a fully involved house fire with two adjacent structures threatened that were nearby the house. Firefighters initiated a defensive attack on the structure due to structural failure of the building and to protect the adjacent structures. They were faced with cold temperatures and slippery conditions at the scene. Firefighters were on-scene for approximately five hours. To make donations to help the family recover from their loss, please contact the parents of Katie Jo and Dustin, Anthony Richter 715-651-0047 or Rosie and Steve Danielson 715-943-2735.

by Rich Kremer Wisconsin Public Radio STILLWATER, Minn. - It was a big year for supporters of a $700 million bridge project that would link western Wisconsin to the Twin Cities Metro area. The St. Croix River crossing is closer to reality than it’s ever been but still needs approval from Congress. Talks on how to replace the 80-year-old lift bridge linking Houlton to Stillwater have gone on for more than 20 years. The main holdup is that bridge crosses the St. Croix River, which is federally protected under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. So, in order for a new bridge to go up, Congress must pass a bill granting an exemption. This summer, two bills were introduced to give a green light for a $700 million, four-lane bridge to cross the St. Croix. Daryl Standafer is a member of the pro-bridge group called the St. Croix River Crossing Coalition. He says the legislation has already passed two committees. “We only await only sched-

uling for final floor votes in both the House and the Senate, and we’ve never had that before.” Congressman Ron Kind of La Crosse says he’s frustrated by the delays. He recently sent a letter to congressional leadership urging an immediate vote, “I’ve been dealing with this issue for a very long time, and it’s within our grasp and now we’re just trying to push it across the finish line.” But the proposed bridge has many opponents as well. Bill Neuendorf works with the group Transit for Livable Communities and says four lanes and $700 million is over the top, “A bridge of this scale and of this cost is not passing the smell test of people throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.” Supporters of the bridge project hoped that Congress would vote on the project by year’s end but that doesn’t seem likely. The next opportunity for the bills to be taken up is in mid-January.

by Kristen Durst Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - If 2011 was a difficult year financially for many Wisconsin public school districts, next school year could be even more challenging. The 2011-2013 state budget that passed last summer cut state aid to public education by $800 million, and it also reduced revenue limits per student by 5.5 percent, which severely curtailed school districts ability to raise money by levying property taxes. The virtual end of collective bargaining for public workers, however, did allow many districts to achieve savings through increased employee contributions to pensions and health care. Miles Turner is the executive director of the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators. He says that some of the means that schools used to balance budgets this year will not be

available in 2012. “Next year the majority of districts in the state of Wisconsin will not have the doubling of retirements, will not have the stimulus money, will not be able to recapture the retirement and the insurance that they did out of employee benefits, will have severely limited fund balance, and either will have to cut deeper into programs or look at more programs to cut and class sizes,” he says. “Next year, there is no question that next year will be an incredibly more difficult financial picture for local districts than this year.” In a recent survey of Wisconsin school districts, Turner’s organization found that two out of three districts expect to have as deep or even deeper cuts next year. And half of all districts reported that they used federal stimulus funding to help offset cuts this year. That funding will be unavailable next year.

The things that we can appreciate

Send letters to P.O. Box 455, Shell Lake, WI 54871 or e-mail wcregister@centurytel.net

I just wanted to say how lucky I feel living in our little town of Shell Lake. There is always so much negativity in the letters to the editors. I just wanted to write something different. I appreciate our clinic and hospital. All the doctors, nurses and other employees are there to help us out. Our city crew keeps our roads safe. I extend gratitude to the people that

put all the lights up at the park. It took a lot of work. It was beautiful, and I enjoyed it a lot. I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year. I feel very fortunate to live in the good old U.S.A., and may God bless America.

My wife and I walk three miles, six days a week, on one of two well-traveled roads. We are appalled by the amount of litter thrown from vehicles by uncaring motorists and their children. The caliber of people that litter our beautiful area probably won’t read this letter because either they can’t read or they simply don’t read. Years ago, the state of Michigan levied a 5-cent deposit on all beverage containers. The nickel was redeemed upon the return of the bottle. Our politicians probably don’t have the gumption to enact such a law, but it sure cleaned up Michigan’s roads.

The majority of paper found on the roads has fast-food names on them, indicating that the trash-tossers are probably not into gourmet cuisine. The refuse generated by fast foods should also have a deposit system. The insulated containers that foods of this nature are packaged in will never go away, at least not in our lifetime. Having lived in other areas of the country, I can tell each and all that we are living in paradise. Please don’t ever take northern Wisconsin for granted.

Local recall signature goal exceeded … deadline to sign: Jan 9

Congratulations to Washburn County recall volunteers and petition signers. Last week, we blew past our goal, which is wonderful. This has been a totally grassroots driven activity, supported entirely by local donations. There is some misinformation being spread around though. Our volunteers have been questioned as to how much they are being paid, if they are from out of state, etc. These concerned citizens, who volunteer their time, talents and money, make their homes here, and are passionate about giving everyone who wishes for an election do-over a chance to sign the recall petitions. This is what

democracy looks like. The Little Office That Could, in Spooner, will be open through Monday, Jan. 9. This is where you may drop off your petitions, sign petitions, volunteer help, get recall buttons, signs, stickers and visit the office. It is urgent you turn in any petitions by Jan. 9. There will be a last chance to sign on Monday, Jan. 9, at Shell Lake’s Lakeview Hotel Bar and Grill, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. For more information please call, 715-416-3333

Have your readers noticed, while driving between Shell Lake and Spooner, how beautiful the roadway right of way is looking? The Washburn County highway workers are doing a good job. After several years’ neglect under the Doyle administration, Democratic, the brush and weeds really grew in. Slowly, but surely, Gov. Walker is get-

ting things turned around in Madison. Now if the mining bill can get through the Legislature, employment opportunities will improve for northern Wisconsin workers.

Snowmobile trails closed due to insufficient snow

WASHBURN COUNTY — As of Wednesday, Dec. 28, the snow base on snowmobile trails in Washburn County was 0-3 inches, therefore the snowmobile trails remain closed due to insufficient snow. The majority of the ski and snowshoe trails are also closed at this time. You may ski on the College Street Park trails, but keep in mind there may be bare spots and rock skis are recommended. The trails will not be groomed until sufficient snow is received. ATV trails and the Wild River Trail are

open. The trail system will close any time the fire danger reaches very high or higher. — from Washburn County Tourism

TOWN OF THORNAPPLE — A snowmobiler died after his sled fell through open water on a portion of the Flambeau River in central Rusk County. Christopher Stanger, 26, Somerset, formerly from the Ladysmith area, was pulled out of the water by family members. He was brought to a location on the ice where emergency personnel began lifesaving CPR. He was transported via snowmobile and trailer to a waiting ambulance and then transported to Rusk County Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. — from Barron News-Shield ••• BARRON — Jennie-O Turkey Store has announced the advancement of Chad S. Nisbit to plant manager at the Barron plant. Nisbit joined Jennie-O Turkey Store in 1990 at the Altura, Minn., plant and was promoted to supervisor of sanitation in 1994. In 1995, he advanced to supervisor of packaging and moved to the Faribault, Minn., plant in 1996 as the manager of boning. In 2000, he was promoted to senior manager of basic processing at Faribault. In 2004, he advanced to production manager at the Barron plant. — from Barron News-Shield ••• RICE LAKE — Have fun, but take care. Sailskaters enjoyed the ice and wind on Rice Lake, but authorities are warning that the ice on most area lakes isn’t safe. The Barron County Sheriff’s Department cautions residents to stay off area lakes — especially while operat-

ing vehicles, including snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles — until colder weather sets in. Because of unusually warm temperatures, parts of area lakes are not safe. The ice thickness on lakes changes rapidly, ranging from 2 inches in spots to 8 inches in others. The sheriff received a report over the weekend of a snowmobile pulling an ice house that went through the ice at the Pokegama Boat Landing near Chetek. The sled sank, but no one was injured. The outdoor skating rink and warming house in downtown Rice Lake hasn’t opened for the season due to unfavorable ice-making conditions. — from the Rice Lake Chronotype ••• ST. CROIX FALLS — Early in the morning on Friday, Dec. 23, was not a good time to be a structure in downtown St. Croix Falls on Washington Street. In the span of about two hours, two separate, unrelated incidents involving apparently intoxicated, passed-out drivers ended with their vehicles striking a building. Shortly after 2 a.m., there was a report of a truck that had driven into a garage with the driver passed out. The homeowner had apparently pulled the keys from the ignition, and the driver was still in the truck when the authorities arrived. Less than two hours later, the police were called to the Holiday Gas Station for a report of a large black pickup truck still running and idling up against the wall of the gas station with the driver passed out behind the wheel, still holding a drink in his hand. — from the Inter-County Leader

Winter aeration creates open water in Washburn County

WASHBURN COUNTY — Several lakes in Washburn County will have sections of open water resulting from aeration systems used to sustain aquatic life according to the Department of Natural Resources. Operated by governmental units or lake groups, the systems cause areas on the lake to remain ice-free. “These systems,” said Brian Spangler, DNR fisheries technician, “add oxygen to the water all winter and help prevent winterkill of fish and other organisms.” Snowmobilers, anglers and other lake users should use caution on these lakes because of open water. The

open water areas, as required by state statute, must be clearly marked danger, open water; warning; ice holes; or danger, thin ice; and cordoned off using fence posts connected by rope with reflective tape or reflectors. The fencing must be at least 30 inches from the surface and no more than 54 inches high. The lakes with public access that have aeration systems include Little Long Lake in the Town of Bashaw, Spring Lake in the Town of Stone Lake, Camp Lake and Ike Walton Pond in the Town of Chicog, and Priceless Pond in the Town of Madge. — from the DNR

Auditions set for TitW production of “Nickel and Dimed”

SHELL LAKE — Longtime friends and cast mates Jessica de la Cruz and Tommy Yousten will be directing an April staging of “Nickel and Dimed,” a provocative, thought-provoking and comic retelling of a real-life minimum wage experiment. Barbara Ehrenreich’s bestselling book, “Nickel and Dimed, on (Not) Getting by in America,” was adapted for the stage by Joan Holden and first premiered in 2002. Time magazine has called it, “a rare example of theater that tries to open people’s eyes to the way life is lived in the real world — and maybe even rouse them to action.” “Nickel and Dimed,” set in the late 1990s, requires a flexible and diverse collection of characters, men and

women from their 20s to 60s, with the potential for multiple roles per person. Auditions will be held Wednesday, Jan. 11, and Thursday, Jan. 12, at 6:30 p.m., at the Erika Quam Memorial Theatre in Shell Lake. Those who’d like to learn more about the show, arrange another audition time or volunteer in other ways should contact de la Cruz at 715-790-4094 or Yousten at 715491-1738. Theatre in the Woods is a nonprofit community theater organization, now in its 22nd year, located at the Erika Quam Memorial Theatre, 605 1st St. in Shell Lake.

January

“… slow as molasses in January!” anuary does get a bad rap sometimes. Of course, it is one of our longer months and generally our coldest. January has also been dubbed as having one of the most depressing days. A British researcher claims that Jan. 18 is the most depressing day of the year. Others claim the third Monday of January is, giving it the term Blue Monday. A lot of good things have happened in the month of January. For my family it was the birth of my brother, Robert. Being born on Jan. 4, he was the New Year’s baby for 1963 at the Frederic hospital. It was a very cold Jan. 9, 30 years ago, that I gave birth at the Frederic hospital to my firstborn, a son, Matthew. The temperature recorded at the Spooner Ranger Station on that day was minus 1 for the high and minus 29 for the low. It was also very windy and fresh snow fell. The high temp on Jan. 10 was minus 12 with a low of minus 30. Others born in January include historymakers Betsy Ross, Paul Revere, Alexander

Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Entertainers born in January include Mel Gibson, Robert Duvall, Nicolas Cage, Kevin Costner, Paul Newman, Gene Hackman, Tom Selleck, Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond and of course, Elvis Presley, to name a few. Did you know that the TV game show “Wheel of Fortune” started in January 1975? The host then was Chuck Woolery rather than the best-known host, Pat Sajak. According to trivia printed in the Jan. 16-22, 2011, edition of AmericanProfile, paraffin-coated drinking straws were patented in January 1888; and in January 1916, golfers in New York established the Professional Golfers Association. Janus, the Roman god of the doorway, gave January its name and it signifies beginnings and endings. May you embrace January as a time of new beginnings for greater things and the ending of things that brought you down.

Barronett by Judy Pieper

Happy 2012! I hope this will be one of your happiest and healthiest years ever. I didn’t get any calls about New Year’s resolutions. I read the comics in the daily Twin Cities paper, and Garfield had one of the most truthful resolutions I have ever seen. He resolved to eat healthier food and exercise regularly — and to try to stop lying constantly. Lois, Tim, Carol, Rebecca and Rachel Nickell traveled to Omaha, Neb., on Dec. 15 to attend Timothy Nickell’s graduation, with honors, from the University of Nebraska Medical School. To start off the celebration, the family had dinner at the Omaha Golf Course on Thursday evening. On Friday morning, the family attended the honorary commencement and honors convocation, where Timothy was awarded his master’s degree in the medical field. On Friday evening, the men, seven of them, from the class reserved a block of rooms in a hotel for their families and, after seven years of grueling study and hard work, they partied till the cows came home. And rightfully so. Timothy is now employed in Shell Lake as a physician’s assistant. Congratulations Timothy! We are very happy that you came back to our area to begin your career. Steven Nickell was able to come home for 12 days during the Christmas break. Steven has been in South Korea for the past year or so, teaching English as a second language. He left Jan. 3 to go teach in Japan for 12 to 14 months. Steven said that he has thoroughly enjoyed living in South Korea for the past year. He said that South Korea is, economically, the fastest-growing country in the world, and that it is also one of the safest places to live in the world. It was so interesting to hear

about his life overseas, and I’m really glad I happened to call their home while he was there. Rebecca and Rachel Nickell were also able to come home for the weekend to visit with the family. Rebecca and Rachel are living in Mankato, Minn., and are both working in the medical field. It’s no wonder Lois is so proud of her grandchildren, is it? Beth Ranallo, Amy Morrison and 15 girls from Brownie Scout Troop 3169 went to the Cumberland ECU before Christmas to entertain the residents with carols. They also did a skit where each girl recited a part beginning with the letters to Merry Christmas. The residents had a wonderful time while the girls were there and even joined in the singing of most of the carols. Beth said that they spent about a half hour entertaining and visiting, and that the girls had a great time with the residents. Randy Lehmann and John Libra traveled from Portland, Ore., to spend Christmas with family and friends in the area. They arrived on Thursday, and that evening Penny Sundvall made dinner for them and Don and Anitia, at her home. On Friday evening, Tinille Lehmann and Chris Demers visited with John and Randy at Don and Anitia’s home. The Lehmann family celebrated Christmas Eve at the hunting shack, and the entire family, including all the grandchildren, were there. Anitia’s sister, Mary Jane, and Harry Swift came down from Grand Marais, and Rose Gillis came from Amery to be with the family. There were three little ones there this year, Gavin, Miles and Tru, and that made the Christmas celebration even more special. There were lots of family pictures taken,

We hope you all had a nice Christmas. We certainly had the weather on our side. Roads were clear and snow free. We may get some snow for the New Year like North Dakota and Minnesota had. The Pederson family had sad news on Christmas Day. Margaret (Pederson) Lobnitz, 84, Santa Barbara, Calif., passed away after a short illness. Her husband, Gordon, died a year ago. We send sympathy to her family. She had three girls, Peggy, Shelly and Debbie; and three grandchildren. Lillian Ullom had Christmas Day dinner with Mark and Judy Ullom of Barronett on Saturday. On Sunday she was with Donna and Norman Ness. Judy and Myron Bolterman drove to Minot, N.D., Friday to spend the holiday with daughter Amy. Her friend, Charlie Harrington, of Montana was there also. They returned home Tuesday. Friday night, Dec. 23, Peder Pederson took his family to Drags in Rice Lake for supper of pizza. Arlys Santiago is dog-sitting, so she and the dogs will celebrate together at her home. We had two birthday celebrations last Tuesday with cake and ice cream. Birthday greetings to Mary Sims and Darwin McConkie. Tuesday morning, Lillian Ullom visited Helen V. Pederson and brought some goodies. Thank you, Lillian.

Mary and Keith White of Cross Plains took Mary’s mom, Helen V. Pederson, to 4 p.m. church at Salem and afterward we drove by the beach to see all the decorations put out there my many local businesses. It was beautiful. Then we went to Dottie White’s at Lakeland Manor for snacks. The White families had celebrated there at noon, Steve, Judy, Keith, Mike and Kevin and families. Mavis and Roger Flach and Steve and Jody Flach, Maddy and Blake attended church and had supper at Jody and Steve’s after. Tim and Sue Pederson and Stephanie and friend Cody were at Jane and Rick Lauterback’s Christmas morning for the Quam Christmas. Saturday, Dec. 24, the Pederson families enjoyed dinner with Sue and Larry Winner of Solon Springs. Also there were Whites of Cross Plains, their daughter Gina White of Stillwater, Tim and Sue Pederson of Amherst, Stephanie Pederson and her friend Cody of Eau Claire, Greta and Logan Zinski of Eau Claire, Jared and Rachael Pederson, Elizabeth, Daniel and Joshua. Of course, we had to hurry home to watch the Packers win 35-21. What a good game. If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. Happy belated New Year’s!

Heart Lake news

naturally. They had plenty of great food, played the white elephant game, and everyone had a wonderful time. John and Randy flew home again on Sunday morning. They called to let Don and Anitia know that they had arrived safely, and to thank everyone for the fantastic visit. Don and Anitia spent Christmas Day with Kevin, Kate, Loren and Emma O’Neal, Mary Jane and Harry, and Rose Gillis at the O’Neal home. They enjoyed the food, played games and had a nice time visiting. Jim Copus and his friend, Donna Varriano, came back from Florida to spend Christmas with Jim’s family in southern Wisconsin, and then came to Barronett/Cumberland to spend time with us. Jim, Donna, Duane and I went to Pat Olson’s for Christmas dinner. It was such a nice day because all of Pat’s kids were there. Jay, Marcia and Jace Olson had even traveled up from Clinton, Mo., to spend Christmas with the family. The dinner was great. You know what a good cook Pat is. Pat had presents for everyone under the tree. We had a really nice time there. From Pat’s house Jim, Donna, Duane, Jerry Marsh and I went to Jim Marsh’s house in Rice Lake to eat even more (groan) and to watch the Packer game. Poor Duane — the Packers can’t lose and the Vikings can’t win. It was fun anyway. This really is a wonderful time of the year, but it’s nice to have it behind us. Does everyone overeat at this time of year, or is it just me? Maybe I should make the same resolution Garfield did. Of course, if I did, I’d just be kidding myself. I’m a lot like the people on that commercial who are singing “Tomorrow.” Well, I guess that’s about all I know from Barronett this week. I hope you had a very nice New Year’s Eve celebration. See you later.

Thursday evening she had Gene’s, Dennis, Brian Bergman and son Ben from Eau Claire for rhutmos together. That is a Swedish dish of ham, rutabagas and potatoes that is a family tradition her mom fixed. Viv reports her cousin, Ann Marie Armour of Bradenton, Fla., had a heart attack recently. Put her on your prayer list.

She is at home and recovering. She is the daughter of the late Ted and Alma Hagg that had the famous Hagg’s Sarona House. Dan and Heather Ripplinger and family were together with her brother in Barron on Christmas Day. Dan’s folks were at their house for Thursday evening supper. Elfreda West was at Mark and Debbie’s with their family for Christmas Eve and at granddaughter Dorien Glaze’s for Christmas Day. Dave and Kelly Stoner had Willie and Vicki Lombard join them and their boys, Matt and wife Tayna and David Jr., and the seven grandchildren for Christmas Day supper. Kelly was hoping for some snow for cross-country skiing. At my house on Thursday night, there were 28 in all for supper, games and gifts, so all of my family were together. That’s what it’s all about. While my Cindy was here from Illinois, she, Russel and I drove up to Webster on Saturday and visited sister Sharon and Merle. John and Mary Marschall came that evening and played 500 cards after candlelight services at Sarona Methodist. Then the next night we watched the Packer-Bear game at John and Mary’s and ate some more. The first time in my 79 years, I didn’t go to my old homestead for Christmas Eve with my siblings. We are getting together in May instead when it’s warmer and not so busy. That is our plan. It’ll be like Christmas in July. Wednesday, Mavis Schlapper, Mary Krantz and I brought cookies and had coffee with Dort Lombard at the Spooner nursing home. We found her doing well. Mavis Schlapper spent Christmas Eve and Day with daughter Pam and family in Elk Mound.

Grandson Brady brought me a pickup load of wood and put it in the basement and visited awhile. He had purchased 40 acres of wooded hunting land this fall and Santa brought him a new chain saw so he wants to make some trails. So nice of him. It sure has been a mild December with very little snow here so far. For some of us it’s great. Some are hoping for better ice for fishing and snow for winter sports. The holidays were enjoyed at Big Ripley but several families were in the Twin Cities for Christmas. Dick and Marie King had their son Jay’s family up for the week playing in the snow. Marie reports her new hip is mending well as she continues with physical therapy. Cindy Bauman and Denise Jerchorek had Cindy’s sister, Sandy, and husband Dale up for the holidays. They have been ice fishing all week. Word has it the Grinch stole all the fish out of the lake though. The Bergrens and Baileys are enjoying playing with the grandkids, ice boarding and skating, enjoying the mild weather. Birthday wishes to Akemia Fischer and Randy McKibben, Jan. 6; John Marschall, Mike Campbell and Mark Thompson, Jan. 7; Miles Taylor, Jan. 8; Lorraine Thompson, Jennifer Zaloudek and Ryan Lord, Jan. 9; Sue Krantz, Karen Davies and Kenny Paffel, Jan. 10; and Shannon Sutherland, Vinnie Williams and Colton Smith, Jan. 11. Have a happy one. Brandon Degner marched in the parade and played the snare drum at the game with the UW Badgers band in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., again this year. We are so proud of him.

This camper, owned by Andy and Candy Johnson of Siren, overturned in the storm Friday, July 1, just after turning north at the junction of CTHs N and D. The parents, and their three young daughters, along with their dogs, were all in the vehicle when it overturned. No one was seriously injured. Weather warnings had expired by more than 30 minutes, Candy wrote on Facebook, and there was no wind or rain at their house, just a few miles from where the incident occurred. - Photo courtesy Dawn Jewell

AAA hosts annual youth fishing event

Marah Hanson, with the help of her sister, Lyndsey, caught the biggest fish at the AAA Youth Fishing Event held Thursday, Dec. 29, at Spooner Lake. It was a free day of fishing with equipment, bait and lunch provided by Rick and Barb Anderson of AAA Sports Shop.

This was Lewis Mendez’s first year on the ice, and he was planning on coming back again. He is from Miami, Fla., where they don’t do much ice fishing.

JANUARY IS NATIONAL RADON AWARENESS MONTH SHOULD I TEST FOR RADON?

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You can’t see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. Your home traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. You should test for radon. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. Polk County serves as the Radon Information Center (RIC) for Burnett, Washburn, Douglas and Polk counties.

For a limited time, bring this coupon to the Polk, Burnett, Douglas or Washburn County Health Dept. for a $5 radon test kit (normally $8) or mail this coupon with your name, address, phone and $7 (includes $2 shipping) to: Polk Co.

SHELL LAKE — On Christmas, a special party was held at Terraceview Living Center in Shell Lake. Frances Zehe celebrated her 103rd birthday with a cake enjoyed by residents and staff at lunch. Zehe always thought she lived in the most interesting 100 years there ever was. She saw two world wars, the Depression, several conflicts, the birth of commercial air flight, the space program, TV, computers and medical advances. Frances Emma Gates was born on a farm near Mondovi on Christmas morning, 1908. Her older siblings were mad because they had to stay in their bedrooms and couldn’t open Christmas presents. Her mother even put Frances in one of the Christmas stockings, which further aggravated a sister. Growing up on the farm, the children only had one pair of shoes. Every morning, summer and winter, the children had to bring the cows in for milking before going to school. Of course, they had to go barefoot and learned to step in the warm “cow pies” to keep their feet warm. After washing their feet and putting on their shores, they walked to school. After high school, Zehe trained to be a registered nurse at Trinity Lutheran Hospital in Ashland. After becoming a nurse, she married Frank Bernard Zehe and had seven children. She learned to trade Depression coffee coupons for shoes for her kids. Frank was diagnosed with leukemia in 1961. Since this meant she was the only breadwinner, Frances, Frank and the two youngest children moved to Aurora, Minn. Frances became a dispensary nurse at Erie Taconite Mine in Hoyt Lakes. She had several exciting stories about ambulance runs into the open pit mines. In those days, nurses

Area Writer’s corner

by Jack Neely, St. Paul The only two good things that happened that day were a squad car stop and the good dream I had right before I awoke with my tongue welded to the roof of my mouth. After not being able to sleep, I had taken one antihistamine tablet followed by two more shortly thereafter. It was all uphill after that. I returned to the house three times on the way to play racquetball; once for the garage door opener, once for pictures to be dropped off at my daughter’s and lastly, when a mile from home, for my membership card. Encouraged by winning the first two games with my partners, I made the mistake of playing three more that my arthritic knees begged me not to – as I had not taken my medication for that malady. I left somewhat the worse for wear, driving with ice bags on my knees. Maybe the day would improve. I knew that if you are the first or second car in line when the light turns green onto southbound Central Avenue, you can just make it through the next two lights at major intersections 1-1/2 miles away – if you really punch it. I did. So did the black-and-white as he made a U-turn and caught up with me on the interstate after I made the second green light in fine fashion. He was very nice – probably noticing my age. I was even nicer and I left without a ticket and the new knowledge that the speed limit drops from 50 mph to 40 mph about one-half mile from the first targeted green light. Had he asked me if I had been drinking I would have asked him, “Why do you ask?” If he answered, “Because your eyes look bloodshot,” I would have asked him if he had been eating donuts. Had he asked why I asked that, I would have said, “Because your eyes look glazed.” It was as black as the inside of a cow and I was as cold as a well-digger’s knee when I arrived at our son’s house to sit “the brothers.” It was 5 above zero with a 15-mph wind from the north as I locked my keys in the car, along with my gloves, and fumbled to find my extra truck key so as to retrieve “the brothers” house key. There was no extra truck key. I also had neglected

to take my medication for the ever-present Reynaud’s disease. Consequently my fingers turned a leathery white while encouraging Curran, age 7, to unlock the front door – which he was unable to do when laughing so hard. Once inside, I of course, was teased with a lecture from my son on improving my memory and the finer points of daily living. I retrieved my set of keys with my son’s truck key and fulfilled my sitting duties. But I had to return to the house to get my keys, which were left on the hallway table. A string with the keys for around my neck was gingerly offered. As I pulled myself up our outside steps using the handrail, I could not tell if the crunching sound came from the granite grit I put on the steps or from my knees. It had been a long, eventful day in the land of the retired and I very much looked forward to pulling the shades and taking my racquetball obligatory 45minute nap in the fetal position in a fleece blanket on our king-size bed. But as I opened the back door to set down my gym bag, I knew it was not to be. The nap would have to wait. A higher calling was before me. For that night my life flashed before me as it merged with my only son’s early years. In an instant we had become as one. All those early warnings and yearnings for the best for one’s son came rushing at me in a torrent of emotions. The main job of a parent, particularly the father, is to prepare his son for a productive life that flowers in a happy family setting. Hopefully his seed that carries forward will do his name proud. It is to prepare him for the trials and tribulations that the son will confront as he travels the various roads of life; some smooth and downhill, some rough and uphill, all the way to disappointment at the top. One must teach that some of the rules for that road, for peaceful coexistence with your mate, will be with you forever. The object of one of the most important lessons awaited me just inside the backdoor. It stood there tall as if at attention — waiting proudly — but waiting just for me. For I was the only person that could respond to its needs. Only I could complete its mission. It was the obligation I had tried to prepare my son to

Farmers urged to watch finances more closely

by Steve Roisum Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - The head of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says farmers will need to pay close attention to their bottom line in 2012. Farmers found 2011 to be a very expensive year when it came to running their operations. Ag Secretary Ben Brancel says the high cost on things such as fuel and seeds will likely continue into 2012. Brancel says many farmers who saw healthy market prices in 2011 will still need to watch their spending next year. “It’s interesting when people hear about $21 milk or

Washburn County

Register

$7 corn they think all of a sudden you got rich, but the reality is we’re not at a dollar and a half fuel anymore, we’re not at $100 a ton fertilizer,” he says. Brancel says farmers need to meet with lenders as soon as possible to secure loans for 2012. “So they understand what you’re doing, what your hopes are, your expenses are, so they’re prepared to help you with your operational costs for the year,” he says. “The later you go, the more iffy it gets.” Brancel says even though 2011 proved a year of very agreeable milk market prices for dairy farmers, another good year would certainly help to recover from a brutal 2009 when milk market prices saw near record lows.

THANK YOU

On Dec. 16, I lost my best friend, and the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office lost one of their finest officers. After 27 years together, I will miss his sense of humor, his personality, hugs, unlimited talent and most of all companionship. Every time Jerry left the house to start a shift, he would flash his lights. That simple gesture said more than words can say, and that too I will miss. Please take the time to thank our local law enforcement officers and support them in their loss of Jerry. Just take a minute to thank them for dealing with things on the job that no one should have to deal with, yet someone must. I cannot begin to understand why God chose now to take Jerry, but can take comfort in knowing that Jerry accepted Christ as his Savior, and someday we will be reunited. I would like to express sincere thanks to everyone who helped me and our family at this difficult time. It would be impossible to thank individually the hundreds of people who paid their respects. For me, his family and co-workers there will be a hole left that can never be refilled.

Power project could become clearer in 2012

by Maureen McCollum Wisconsin Public Radio LA CROSSE - Large-scale energy transmission projects are picking up steam in southwest Wisconsin, and some major decisions will be finalized next year. CapX2020 and American Transmission Company’s Badger-Coulee line are part of a major national energy infrastructure project. The two projects could merge in La Crosse, if they’re approved by Wisconsin’s Public Service Commission. Part of CapX2020 is already running in Minnesota. Next year in Wisconsin there will be more public hearings regarding environmental impact statements and final route decisions. The PSC commissioners are expected to make their final decision on the project in June. Tim Carlsgaard is a spokesperson with Xcel Energy, a partner in the CapX project. He says the new 345 kv power lines are needed to carry a higher capacity of energy. “Things at some point get old and run out of gas,” he says. “You need to upgrade them, as you do with highways or anything else infrastructure-wise.” ATC’s Badger-Coulee line, running from La Crosse to Dane County, is not as far along. ATC officials are expected to narrow down the potential routes by fall. Both projects are facing opposition from organizations and some communities. Rob Danielson is with the Town of Stark’s Energy Planning and Information Committee, which is researching power line effects, largely used by opposition groups. He says he hopes more people will speak out against the lines next year and see that it’s not worth the ratepayer investment. “We can take the same amount of money and invest

n 1933, James Caldwell developed a rubber dustpan. It had to sell for a dollar, while others sold for 39 cents. Stores wouldn’t buy them. Discouraged, but not defeated, he started ringing doorbells. After ringing 10 doorbells, he had sold nine dustpans. As it succeeded, he made 27 other items and started Rubbermaid Company, a multimillion dollar business.

A little bit closer to getting a new school sign The reality of a new school sign is $6,000 closer, thanks to a donation by Shell Lake State Bank. Jim Connell, (L), superintendent of Shell Lake Schools, accepted the check on Wednesday, Dec. 28, from Dave Haroldson of Shell Lake State Bank, to go into the sign fund. The new electronic sign will better serve the community with timely announcements of school and community events. — Photo by Larry Samson

Jeri Bitney

Jerilyn “Jeri” Bitney taught elementary school in Amery from 1975 to 1978 and then moved to St. Paul, so her husband could attend Hamline Law School. “We moved to Spooner in 1981 and then to Tom’s hometown of Shell Lake in 1986. I stayed home with our girls for 15 years and in 1996 began selling real estate to help pay for our daughters college educations,” she said. “I truly enjoy working with people and doing research, so it has been a good fit, and I’ve certainly kept busy. I have been on the school board in Shell Lake since 1993 with only a one-year break and truly love it as my passion is education and learning. I have been on the city council since 2008, but have decided to not seek re-election. I have enjoyed my stint on the council for the most part, but I found that council work is a lot more politic than I ever thought it would be. I do love public service, though, and want to continue on the school board for as long Jeri Bitney as people will have me.” Bitney is proud to announce, “We will be grandparents in the next couple of weeks, so I think, no, I know, that I will want to be able to have more flexibility to spend as much time as possible with the baby (without wearing out my welcome). Most of the time, my life is fairly uninteresting.”

The Jeri Bitney file

FULL NAME, AGE: Jerilyn “Jeri” Bitney, 58 FAMILY: Tom and I have three daughters: Kate 29, Anne 26 (married to Max Bryan) and Kelsey, 23. Anne and Max are expecting our first grandchild on Jan. 4. OCCUPATION: Realtor since 1996, but I taught elementary school in the ‘70s. WASHBURN COUNTY RESIDENT SINCE: 1981 and grew up in Luck. HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Nothing too spectacular. I love to read and do jigsaw puzzles, and am very interested in politics and environmental issues. CLAIM TO FAME: I take great pride in our three daughters. To me, they are what I am most proud of. I wish I could be more like them. MY FAVORITE SPORT TO PLAY: I don’t play any sports. I grew up very asthmatic, sickened by exercise, cold air and foods too numerous to mention. If reading is a sport, then I’m in. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH: I watch football so that I can remain a part of my family. Enjoy may be too strong a word, but I am getting to like it more and more. I still ask my husband dumb questions about penalties, tending to ask the same ones on a regular basis and followed by eye-rolling. PLACE I WOULD MOST LIKE TO VISIT: I would love, love, love to go back to Sweden to visit relatives. DINNER COMPANION, DEAD OR ALIVE: I would want to share a meal with either of my grandfathers. Both

of them died long before I was born. THE PERSON I MOST ADMIRE: I am sounding a bit sappy here, but I admire my husband and our daughters. BEST MOVIE I EVER SAW: I don’t have a favorite, but I love anything along the lines of “You’ve Got Mail,” “Sleepless in Seattle,” “Must Love Dogs,” “Under the Tuscan Sun.” I enjoy sap with a happy ending. FAVORITE MOVIE LINE: Honestly, I don’t remember any. FAVORITE TV SHOW: Any of the “NCIS,” “Law and Order” and “CSI” series. MUSIC I LISTEN TO: Instrumental pieces. My car has Wisconsin Public Radio on 100 percent of the time as I like learning and gathering information. FAVORITE STOOGE: Stooge? Really? Probably Curly, as he was usually the underdog and not mean. FAVORITE DISH: Either the quinoa chili that I make (healthy, spicy), or tater-tot casserole. Comfort food. LAST BOOK I READ: “The Book Thief,” which also happens to be one of the best books I have ever read. MY FRIENDS WOULD DESCRIBE ME AS: Reasonably intelligent and organized (but some of them have not seen my office). MY FIRST JOB WAS: As a fletcher. I glued feathers onto arrows for two summers while in college. I’D LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR: Being caring, kind and willing to help out.
