Neighbors of private home turned “resort” take legal action against county

It’s here, it’s in, and it’s brilliant See page 6

by Jessica Beecroft WASHBURN COUNTY – The gloves are off as a group of residents in the neighborhood of Little Bear on Long Lake use their last option and file a lawsuit against the county. After asking the county zoning committee to enforce zoning restrictions that prohibit resorts in residential areas and getting no satisfaction, the group has decided they need to begin legal action in an attempt to force the county to enforce what it says is simple law, as stated in the statutes. Forming a class action lawsuit, several neighbors have come together in the cause, represented by attorney Sarah Donnell of Eau Claire.

by Marty Seeger Special to the Register MADISON – The right to carry concealed weapons in Wisconsin is in its final leg of becoming law as the state Assembly approved SB93 on Tuesday, June 21, in Madison. Just last week, a bill allowing concealed carry and the use of tasers and other nonlethal weapons passed the state Senate, and with approval from the Assembly, the bill now awaits the signature of Gov. Scott Walker, who has voiced his support. SB93 passed without amendment by a vote of 6827, and according to a report by Jason Stein, a reporter from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, it could become law as soon as Oct. 1, or Nov. 2, depending on when Walker releases his timetable for signing the bill once it reaches his desk. “I think it’s all something we can be proud of and work with,” said Dominic Ferraro, president of Advanced Protection Group, LLC. Ferraro was in the Frederic area earlier this past spring to offer concealed-carry training courses for area residents, who along with Ferarro, expected some form of concealed-carry bill to pass, especially with the Republican majority in control of the state government. With Walker’s signature, Wisconsin will become See Concealed carry, page 3

A life remembered

Community gathers to remember young nurse who touched lives with a caring manner

by Jessica Beecroft SPOONER – Hundreds filled the Spooner High School auditorium last Thursday, June 16, to remember the life of Angie Ellanson, a nurse who “touched the community with her sweet personality and caring ways.” Ellanson died of a brain aneurysm on June 13 at the age of 39. Her sudden death shook not only her coworkers and friends, but the hundreds of people she treated in her role as a health-care provider - at the Duluth Clinic in Spooner, Spooner Health System and at a free clinic at Rice Lake where she donated her time. “We definitely have an angel looking over us now,” Lisa Souter, a friend of Ellanson’s, told those gathered for the memorial. “When I learned of her passing, I was shocked but then just sad. Angie was truly a wonderful and amazing doctor and person. I will definitely miss her and my prayers are with her family as well as all her friends and all the lives and hearts she has touched.” Ellanson is survived by her husband, Doug; her three children, Luke, Kennedy and Ty, all of Sarona; as well as her parents, two brothers and seven nephews.

Angelica Ellanson

Wendy Helstern-Brown said people considered Angie their doctor, even though her official title was certified nurse practioner. “She had the most incredible smile, sense of humor and a way that would change you from sad to happy in a second or two,” Helstern-Brown said. She said Angie “left a mark on all of our hearts ... our hearts are broken and eyes filled with tears.” The theme of the memorial was underlined by Pastor Brent Berkesch, who presided over the ceremony. “Cherish your family,” he said. “They are your greatest treasure.” Helstern-Brown posted a group on Facebook titled RIP Angelica Lynn “Angie” (Hereid) Ellanson which allows friends and family to post farewells, thoughts and feelings. A complete obituary can be found on page 18.

by Jessica Beecroft SHELL LAKE – The Shell Lake Board of Education met Monday, June 20, one last time with Brian Nord as the superintendent. The new superintendent, starting July 1 is Jim Connell of Turtle Lake. Connell was chosen out of 22 applicants. The school board narrowed it down to six, then to five and then down to two. The final interviews and public meet and greet occurred in April. Connell has been working with Nord to ensure a smooth transition into the position. Another new face in the Shell Lake School District is Kimberly Osterhues. She will be starting as the new 4K-6 principal. Osterhues has been teaching for the last 18 years in the Solon Springs School District. She will be replacing Mike Werner, who has accepted a position in Superior. The district will also be welcoming a new third-grade teacher, Jennifer Suave, a new high school English/history teacher, Emily Schlieve and Katrina Granzin will be working as the high school physical education and health teacher.

New faces at Shell Lake Schools

Parking predicament After the board of education approved a plan to have the parking lot at the primary school completely redone, they rescinded their vote and decided to go for something that costs less. The board is now working on repairing only a portion of the primary school parking and driveway areas. The whole idea is to increase safety and accessibility for students, parents and buses. The board of education has now approved a tentative plan to leave out the parking area at this time and work on increasing the flow in and out of the primary school. Teresa Amundson of MSA has been working with the board of education to develop a plan that is more cost effective and safe. Amundson is working on a revised plan at this time to submit for bids. Will the district see work being done yet this year? The answer is still pending, but the board of education is prepared to hold the project off until next year if need be.

Moving Wall coming to Spooner

The Moving Wall, a replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., bearing the engraved names of more than 58,000 who gave their lives in Vietnam or who remain missing, will be on display July 28 to Aug. 1 at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Cemetery on Hwy. 53 near Spooner. The memorial - half the size of the original - will be open to the public 24/7 from the opening ceremony at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 28, to 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 1. The appearance of the wall is being made possible by the Washburn County Veterans Committee and the United Commanders, under the direction of retired Army veteran Brian Sengbush and his brother and former Marine Keith Sengbush, co-chairs of the committee organizing the event. When the wall is placed by volunteers at the veterans cemetery, 61 crosses will be placed near it to represent the 61 veterans from the surrounding nine-county area whose names are on the memorial. Thursday’s opening ceremony will run about an hour and a half. It will include a presentation on the history of the wall, the posting of flags and an appearance by a color guard from the Wisconsin National Guard at Eau Claire. The Shell Lake High School band will perform along with a community choir and Boy Scout Troop 51 of Shell Lake will lead attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance. Springbrook VFW will deliver military honors. Watch the Register for more information in coming weeks.

Lake district annual meeting is Saturday


SHELL LAKE — The Shell Lake District annual meeting will be held at the Shell Lake Community Center on Saturday, June 25, starting at 8:15 a.m. All in the Shell Lake community are invited to attend. There will be many exhibits and displays concerning protection of our lake environment. Featured speaker will be Paul Juchem, hydrologist at the U. S. Geological Survey - Wisconsin Water Science Center, Middleton. Juchem has a master’s degree in geology from the University of Wisconsin-

pressed her disgust at the lack of action by county officials. “We have tried so hard to get them to do their job,” she said. “I just don’t understand. It seems like it would be so simple. I find it so frustrating that we have to get an attorney to have them do their job.” Ed Olund, neighbor of Big Bear Resort, said he could not give more information on the lawsuit at this time, only that “it will be filed soon.” The group has been asking the county zoning committee to stop the resort, advertised online as “Big Bear on Little Bear,” a vacation rental, from operating. Keefer presented a petition to the board to investigate and enforce current zoning laws that prohibit a business in a residential area. The petition has 55 signatures of neighbors of the Big Bear on Little Bear as advertised by the owners. This property is located on Little Bear Road on Long Lake. Currently, there are over 60 vacation

rentals in Washburn County. Why does this vacation rental get so much attention? First off, the property is owned by a couple that does not live at the property and just rent it out during summer months to help pay taxes, but was purchased exclusively as a vacation rental property that is available to rent for 365 days out of the year. It also is available to rent for as little as three days at a time. This unit is defined as a resort, according to the definition in the zoning rules and regulations. This property is undergoing remodeling now to accommodate even more families at the same time. Ed Olund, retired Washburn County Board member, who also served on the zoning committee for years, spoke about the neighboring vacation rental home on Little Bear Road. Olund stated that this property on Long Lake, Big Bear on Little Bear, meets the definitions as a resort because it is for recreational purposes only.

liquor license renewals were approved. Among them is the liquor license for the America’s Best Inn & Suites. The license was contested on the grounds that the location is right next door to a church building. Although concerned citizens came forward to question it, the city council went ahead and approved the liquor license for the hotel.

The campground patrons will be able to reserve the dock slips first and, after that, others will be able to reserve slips that are available by calling the campground management at 715-468-2575.

the 49th state to offer some form of concealed carry law. Illinois will be the only remaining state where carrying a concealed weapon is prohibited. Despite efforts to pass a constitutionalcarry bill earlier this year, provisions were added to SB93 to require a permit, as well as proof the person has passed a course on training to obtain that permit. Wisconsin already has a form of constitutional-carry, which allows any Wisconsin resident who can legally possess a firearm to open carry. The state Department of Justice will be responsible for issuing permits to residents who are 21 and older and have passed a background check. They also must be clear of any felony charges or any other charges that prohibit them from carrying a firearm. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report, permits requiring training will cost a maximum of $50 and will be valid for five

Madison and has been the principal investigator on more than eight groundwater studies across the state including the Shell Lake Area Groundwater Study just completed. His talk begins at 9 a.m. and will discuss the results of this study and the significance of these results for the Shell Lake area. This groundwater study was required by the Shell Lake to Yellow River Diversion Project permit and funded 65 percent by the city of Shell Lake and 35 percent by the USGS. The object of the study was to develop a better under-

years. The renewal process for a permit will cost $25. These fees are expected to help pay for the costs of staffing and constructing a database of permit holders. As is the case with other concealedcarry laws in other states, guns will be banned from courthouses, prisons, jails, law enforcement offices and areas beyond security checkpoints at airports. Carrying a concealed weapon inside schools or on school grounds would also be prohibited. Permit holders could also carry guns in bars or places that sell alcohol, as long as they are not drinking. Private business can post signs to keep guns out of their buildings, but guns could not be banned from governmentowned grounds, the Journal Sentinel reported. Guns would also be allowed in city and state parks, as well as churches, unless signs prohibiting concealed weapons are posted.

New ride

LogistiCare transportation scheduling under way

by Jessica Beecroft WASHBURN COUNTY – LogistiCare, a state-contracted company, will provide nonemergency medical assistance transportation starting July 1. As of Friday, June 17, they began scheduling rides. LogistiCare does not own vehicles or compete with local networks of professional transportation companies. The networks consist of local, commercial, nonprofit and public transportation

companies. They are continuously partnering with high-quality providers to deliver a transportation service that is safe, reliable and timely. The Washburn County Department of Aging will continue to provide nonemergency medical transportation for people who are elderly/disabled and not on medical assistance. A handicapped-accessible van was purchased with a grant through the unit of aging and utilized by Namekagon Transit for the elderly/disabled for various activities, not just medical transportation. To schedule your ride please call 800-4867647


Where to write

Letters to the editor Last week, our new Rep. Roger Rivard wrote claiming he made Wisconsin safer by voting to require all prisoners to serve their full sentences. I think his vote made Wisconsin more dangerous and poorer. Here’s why: If prisoners have no incentive to participate in rehabilitation

More dangerous to boot they will simply learn more criminality from their fellow prisoners and exit prison more dangerous than when they entered. I know there are some prisoners who are dangerous and should stay locked up. But let’s allow parole boards and competent criminologists to decide — not legislators painting with a broad

brush. By requiring all prisoners to serve their full terms, Rivard’s vote will cost us taxpayers millions of dollars that we don’t have and make Wisconsin more dangerous to boot.

The Voter ID Bill has been signed by Gov. Walker but it is still being criticized in some quarters due in large part to misleading talking points proffered by certain state legislators. They have mentioned that it is a vehicle to disenfranchise voters, which is false. The only disenfranchisement intended is for people voting illegally! It has also been demagogued as a votersuppression bill. They have mentioned a number of groups that allegedly would be suppressed. This group includes seniors

who have had decades in which to acquire a photo ID. I fall into the senior category and I had my first photo ID in 1962. In this high-tech era, it is unlikely that many 18-year-olds are without a photo ID. Rural residents — can’t farmers have photo IDs? The poor — this seems to inaccurately infer that we have huge numbers of people unable to afford a photo ID. If a person absolutely cannot afford a photo ID, the state will provide one. If a 23-year-old attempts to purchase cigarettes or alcohol he/she is asked for

a photo ID. Isn’t the integrity of our voting weightier than those transactions? It has been said that voter fraud is rare in Wisconsin. In response to that, I would ask how much voter fraud goes undetected — how much has already slipped through the cracks? Voter ID is needed! Voter ID will put voting right up there with that 23-year-old buying a pack of cigarettes.

by Shamane Mills Wisconsin Public Radio MADISON - Gov. Walker’s actions on the budget sent to him last week by the Legislature are being closely watched by women’s health advocates. Lawmakers approved cuts to Planned Parenthood that could force patients to go elsewhere. The budget approved by the Senate and Assembly takes 1 million state and federal dollars from nine Planned Parenthood centers. None of those centers performs abortions, but the organization itself does and that’s why Pro Life Wisconsin supports the measure. If the governor approves the cutbacks to Planned Parenthood it could mean restricted access to cancer screenings, birth control

and pap tests in communities like Oshkosh, Fond du Lac and Eau Claire. Pro Life Wisconsin legislative liaison Matt Sande says women have alternative health sources, like community clinics. “Certainly Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin is not the only public health entity in the state that provides preventive health care to low-income women.” During the budget debate, Democrats read letters from public health departments indicating their concern over budget cuts to women’s preventive health care. Tanya Atkinson is executive director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin. She says their organization served 12,000 patients in the affected

communities “Almost every single one of them exclusively said we cannot absorb these patients,” says Atkinson. “So there’s nowhere else for these patients to go to receive the preventive cancer screening, STD testing and treatment and birth control.” The budget before Walker also would make changes to BadgerCare’s Family Planning Program. Minors would need parental notification to get birth control or medical care and males would be removed from the program; a change that would require federal approval because it a Medicaid program.

by Chuck Quirmbach Wisconsin Public Radio STEVENS POINT - The state’s decision to halt Focus On Energy incentives for businesses planning renewable energy projects troubled some people at this weekend’s energy fair. The Focus on Energy program uses utility ratepayer dollars to help fund energy efficiency and renewable energy programs in Wisconsin. Focus has just

announced that come July 1 it will suspend incentives for renewable energy projects for businesses, as focus says efficiency projects have a faster payback. But the move disturbs David Kozlowski, who has used assistance from focus to install solar panels at his farm in Oak Creek. Kozlowski says suspending the renewables help for businesses is shortsighted. A Sturgeon Bay company, Lake Michi-

gan Wind and Sun, has designed and installed some renewable projects for firms. John Hippensteel says halting the help for businesses is discouraging. Republican state lawmakers have been moving toward dialing back the amount of money available for Focus on Energy, trying to reverse an increase the public service commission approved, before the GOP took power at the state Capitol.

budget cuts funding for education on every level,” said Milroy. “In order to have a productive workforce, we need quality education and job training. The most egregious cut is the 30-percent cut to WITC which will harm job growth in the northland.” The budget contains a $500 million cut in Medicaid. “This will harm people in BadgerCare, SeniorCare and Family Care. These folks are already making tough choices, struggling day to day,” said Milroy. “As the least among us will lose their health care, $500 million will be shifted from health care to help pay for a $2.3 billion taxpayer funded giveaway to big corporations.” The budget reduces funding to local governments by $76.8 million, forcing local communities to cut services. It also cuts funding for road aids to local governments by nearly $40 million. It raids almost 40 percent of funding for local recycling programs. The budget further increases property taxes on seniors and working families by $69.8 million by reducing the Homestead Tax Credit and cutting the Earned Income Tax Credit. “We have citizens not knowing when their cancer treatments will be cut off. We have seniors afraid of losing their homes. We have families struggling to keep food on the table,” said Milroy. “These are just a sample of the people that

will be further hurt by the budget. “Meanwhile State Patrol officers and DNR wardens from throughout the state are being paid overtime to guard the Capitol, costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. And corporations are being given tax break after tax break with the blink of an eye. It just doesn’t make sense. “Obviously the governor and the Republican majority aren’t listening to the middle-class families who will be adversely affected by this budget,” Milroy continued. “Protests and rallies have been held throughout Wisconsin to send a clear message to the administration that the middle class will not stand for this attack on Wisconsin values. Yet Republicans continue to rubber-stamp the governor’s radical agenda by creating a state of fear for the middle class and low income in our state while catering to their campaign donors. In the Republican majority’s world, special interests come first.” The Democratic caucus introduced amendments in an effort to restore funding for programs essential to the wellbeing of the majority of state residents. Every amendment was voted down by the Republican majority. After being passed by the Assembly, the budget now goes to the Senate for passage before being sent to Walker for signature. – from the office of Rep. Milroy

Milroy condemns biennial budget as immoral

Governor and Republican majority moving Wisconsin backward, not forward

MADISON – State Rep. Nick Milroy, DSouth Range, said the biennial budget bill passed is the wrong choice for Wisconsin, stating that it is an immoral budget that will hurt citizens throughout the state. “Governor Walker and the Republican leaders in the Legislature have crafted an immoral budget that sends our state backward rather than forward,” said Milroy. “By rubber-stamping the governor’s assault on working families, Republicans are putting special interests ahead of Wisconsin citizens.” Milroy pointed out that the budget slashes education for public schools by over $1.6 billion, shifting money away from public schools by giving taxpayerfunded vouchers to the wealthy in order to send their children to private schools. “The budget also makes it difficult for people to further their education by cutting deep into the technical colleges and the UW System budgets, while increasing the cost of tuition,” added Milroy. “It’s interesting that we keep hearing rhetoric about creating jobs, but the

Candidate to visit area

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — John Davis has been called a low-profile presidential candidate. Some have called him the Republican presidential dark horse. He will be stopping at the Shell Lake Pavilion at Memorial Park on Tuesday, June 28, at 1:39 p.m. Davis’ Votercade grassroots tour has visited with thousands of people with over 29,000 miles on the road in 688 counties in 17 states. “We’re spreading the seeds around and it’s starting to grow,” he said. People constantly ask him how he will balance the federal budget. “We have to cut everything. We’re out of money and we only have so much to go around. We’re going to have to agree to balance the budget and then decide what we are going to cut.” “While nothing should be sacred from getting the budget balanced,” he said, “(commitments to) the military and the nation’s elderly should be honored.” Davis believes everyone would be willing to sacrifice a little if there was effective leadership in the White House. For more information, please visit Web site or Google John Davis Votercade. — from the office of John Davis

so many years earlier each township had their own fair; farmers brought in their crops of corn and oats and potatoes to compete with their neighbors. Eventually all the smaller fairs joined with the big one in Spooner, north of the city, and the Washburn County Fair was born. The fair moved its location from north of town to south of town and the racetrack wasn’t part of the second fairground. The 4-H clubs took over the Boys and Girls Club in 1925 and there was still an open invitation for the gen-

eral public, those not affiliated with either 4-H or the fair, to display their goods and compete for premiums. Premium is the fair’s word for hard cold cash. Today if you visit either the Spooner or Shell Lake public libraries you can pick up an impressive open and senior division premium book for free and check out their 23 open-class categories. The projects range from dairy cattle to cultural arts, antiques and home furnishings.

by Diane Dryden SHELL LAKE — If you’ve been to town lately, you’ve probably already noticed that the city has taken on some exciting projects this year. Third Street is being totally revamped with pipes, curbs and gutters and all and there are benches and refuse containers along Main Street. The Town Square Park in front of the city hall/library is looking good with lots of the original cement gone and rain gardens and sod will be coming soon, along with additional park benches to take advantage of the library’s Wi-Fi. The Lions hanging flower baskets are lush with blooms that hang along Fifth Avenue and throughout the park. Today, if you look toward the lake, you can see the latest completed project, a new dock floating between the Lions fishing pier and the campground. The original inception of this dock came about during the past few years with surveys that were conducted by the Shell Lake Chamber of Commerce and the downtown redevelopment committee, plus requests by lake residents and frequent local lake users for a way to come into town for shopping, dining, and enjoying the many activities that are held throughout the summer. With all that taken into consideration and many months of study and fact-finding, specifications have been thoroughly defined as meeting the needs of both public boaters, to tie up for a limited amount of time, and for campers to rent with their campsite for the duration of their stay. The dock is a polyethylene floating structure that’s 6 feet wide and 144 feet long. There’s an “L” at the end of the dock going to the right, or south. It will have 11 rental slips for campers on its right and that leaves nine slips on the left side and on the main stem available to the public. The goal of the dock committee, Jack Dahlstrom, Ken Schultz, Gary Burkhart and Diane Dryden – is to fund the $21,000 for the public portion of the dock and the city of Shell Lake is advancing $20,000 toward the campground-rental portion. Donations have already come in from the Shell Lake State Bank, and pledges from both the Shell Lake Chamber of Commerce and the downtown lakefront committee, that will help the bottom line and now the committee is asking the general public to help fund this project that will help polish the jewel of the city, the 2,600-acre crystal-clear Shell Lake.

It’s here, it’s in and it’s brilliant

First thing last Friday morning, June 17, a semi pulled into the Shell Lake landing where Tom Klassa, owner of the Shell Lake Marine, and Jeff Parker, Shell Lake Public Works director, went to work unloading a ShoreMaster dock that was placed between the Lions fishing pier and the campground. All donors in the categories below will have their name on a plaque that will stand at the entrance to the dock. Bronze

donors are asked to contribute from $100 to $499, silver from $500 to $1,499, gold from $1,500 to $2,000 and platinum

plaques will be for donors that contribute $3,000 and up. Checks can be made to the City Dock Fund and either mailed to City Hall at P.O. Box 520, Shell Lake, WI 54871 or simply dropped off at city hall. The committee would like everyone to consider making a contribution to this project, which is tax-deductible. They also invite you to walk onto the new dock, which was installed last Friday, June 17, or tie up your boat on the courtesy side for a few hours. If you’re walking, the dock is accessible from the same walkway that takes you to the fishing dock, just turn right through the buffer system and it will lead you to your destination.

Shell Lake Happenings

Reminder No. 1: If you have any American flags that are either tattered or torn and remember that you can’t put the flag in the garbage, bring them over to a white postal container located on Main Street on the northwest corner of the Shell Lake Public Library. They will be John discarded properly. No. 2: If you get Frischmann this paper on Wednesday, tomorrow there will be a demonstration of all kinds of little animals in the library. There will be a trained educator with all sorts of little animals and he’ll be there from 2 to 3 p.m. No. 3: The July 4 parade is coming soon so get your pontoon or boat ready. No. 4: American Eagles Day is Saturday, Aug. 6, when members of the Experimental Aircraft Association give free airplane rides to children at the Shell Lake airport. The scheduled times have been set as noon to 2 p.m., but if there are kids still waiting to fly, the times will be extended. A parent or guardian must sign for the kids to take flight. ••• As of Monday, June 13, the lake level went down a little from last week. It went from 1,218.53 to 1,218.39. That decrease of .14 x 12 inches equals a decrease of 1.68 inches, and as I promised, the temperature of the water is 70 degrees. Just so I do not receive sarcastic remarks from my erstwhile friends saying, “Well in front of my place it was a lot colder,” the temp of 70 degrees was recorded at the end of my dock on the South Bay, at

Celebrating with ice cream

June is Wisconsin Dairy Month and to celebrate Shell Lake State Bank has a long-standing tradition of serving free ice cream on Fridays and Saturdays during June. I enjoy this tradition very much. When talking with a customer one Friday morning, I asked if she had been to the bank for ice cream. She Suzanne replied with, “Isn’t it a bit Johnson early for ice cream?” Not for me. I can eat ice cream at any time. I’m not the only one either. One Wednesday morning before heading to a 6 a.m.

BEYOND the Office DOOR

10:42 a.m. June 14, and that point is approximately 13/4 miles east on South Lake Drive. To be more definite, the temp was taken at 45 degrees 72 minutes north latitude and 91 deg 92 min west longitude. ••• Last week I was returning a DVD that I had borrowed from the library and as I stood there chatting with Rita Baker, who is one of the library assistants, she took out the DVD disc that I had returned and was hand washing it correctly. “Yes,” she said “When they are returned we clean them the correct way so you all should not have a problem of skipping or stopping when you watch them.” Very nice, thank you. Speaking of the library, over the years I am sure you have noticed little brass tags on some of the tables and other furniture denoting that particular item as being donated by The Friends of the Library. Most of them date back to the early 1990s when the library was moved to its present location. The monies that were raised came from individuals, companies, trusts and were accumulated through the efforts of many people and one person in particular, Mr. John Friedell. John spoke to town councils, companies and any contact when the good of the library was involved. The point in this writing is twofold. One, making mention of John’s immense contribution and for anyone going into the library to ensure that you notice the brass plate on the front desk denoting that the desk was donated as a memorial to John. Second, as you pass the desk going toward the fiction books, look toward the top of the middle shelving and there is another brass plate denot-

appointment in St. Paul, Minn., I was checking my email messages and went on Facebook where I had a quick chat with a friend. I asked what she was doing up before 4 a.m. Her reply was that the mint ice cream in the freezer was calling her name. For those that know Janice, they know that she is the queen of ice cream. I hear that businesses known for ice cream have introduced new flavors for this summer. One new flavor is French Toast that has pieces of french toast and a maple syrup flavor. There is Firehouse, which sounds too hot to be ice cream and Late-Night Snack that has chocolate-dipped potato chips mixed in. Of those three flavors, I would probably choose the latenight snack one, although I don’t think I will try to join Janice if she gets a call from the ice cream in her freezer at 3:30 a.m. I also hope that by this time Janice has forgiven me for not waking her from her catnap around the campfire during the dreamsicle lap at the Washburn County Relay For Life that was held earlier this month.

SLAC presents Tribute to the Big Bands concert and alumni reunion

SHELL LAKE — The Shell Lake Arts Center will host its annual Tribute to the Big Bands scholarship benefit concert on Wednesday, June 29, at 7 p.m., in the arts center auditorium, 802 First St., in Shell Lake. This concert is free and open to the public, and features big band favorites such as “In The Mood,” “Sing Sing Sing,” “Pennsylvania 6-5000,” “Little Brown Jug,” and many more. A reception for audience members and performers will follow the performance, with complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres served. Shell Lake is home to the longest continuously running summer jazz camp in the nation. To honor over four decades of outstanding jazz education, this year’s Tribute to the Big Bands event salutes the many students, alumni, faculty, friends and supporters of the Shell Lake Arts Center. It is because of the generous support of these individuals and businesses that the arts center is able to continue its legacy of quality arts education. Join them as they celebrate 44 years of programming at their biggest concert of the summer. The tribute concert raises funds for the Shell Lake Arts Center’s scholarship program. Completely funded by individual donations, the scholarship program provides financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to attend summer camp. Last year, 24 percent of participants required financial assistance from the Shell Lake Arts Center.


In addition to the tribute concert, the jazz faculty will present a concert on Sunday, June 26, at 7 p.m., in the arts center auditorium to kick off the second week of jazz camp in Shell Lake. They will also be performing a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 27, at the lakefront pavilion as part of the Monday Night Movie festivities. The Monday night concert is sponsored by donations from Indianhead Medical Center, Red Barn Campground, and Heim Enterprises. These concerts all take place during the Jazz Week 2 camp at the Shell Lake Arts Center. Students ages 1218 come from across the United States to receive instruction from professional musicians in improvisation, music theory, jazz history and musical skills. Students will perform in their final jazz band concert on Friday, July 1, at 7 p.m., in the Shell Lake Arts Center auditorium. The July 1 concert is sponsored by Mike Spafford’s branch of American Family Insurance, and Video Plus and Celebrity Tan. Don’t miss this week’s final concert June 24 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium. For more information or to register for a camp, please visit the arts center’s Web site at or call 715-468-2414.— from SLAC

ing that that particular set of shelves was donated by Mr. W. Taubman as a memorial to his wife, Lynn. These donations happened fairly recently and are always helpful. If you feel that you would like to emulate these two memorials, talk to Beth. As I mentioned in a previous column, The Friends will be reassembling so beware, my hand will be out. The plan for the completion of the remodeling of the entryway to the library and the Shell Lake City offices is to be completed by this coming weekend. The addition of a bench, which will be placed under the library’s eave, is to accommodate computer users who can take advantage of the free connection to the Internet. Somebody told me that people have also taken advantage of that free connection while sitting in their cars at the curb. ••• In a little church, a pastor mentioned to his congregation that the power of prayer is wonderful and powerful and did anyone sitting need that help. A gentleman stood up and said, “I need help with my hearing.” “Come down front my friend and the Lord will help you.” He went down to the pastor who had him kneel down, and the pastor put his finger in an ear, put the other hand on his head and while other people gather around the man, all the people prayed loudly. After some period of time all the praying stopped and the preacher called out in a loud voice, “And now my son, how is your hearing?” The man stood up and said, “Oh, that hearing won’t be on till next week.”

Dewey Country by Pauline Lawrence

What a wonderful rain we had this last week! Yes, things were certainly getting dry in our neighborhood. Second-crop hay is comin’ along good as is our corn. It’s the beginning of a new summer and we all look forward to it, just not too hot and humid. Happy birthday wishes go out to my great niece, Stephanie Pederson, and also out to Matthew Denotter, both on June 23. Have a wonderful day. A very happy anniversary to Brandon and Kelly Dahlstrom as they celebrate their special day together on June 24 with many more to come. Happy birthday wishes go out to Chase Crosby, son of Chad and Ashley Crosby, on June 24. Hope you have a fun day, Chase. Happy birthday greetings go out to Kelly Dahlstrom and Harlan Wooden (Woody) on June 24. Many more. Happy birthday to a very dear lady, Phyllis Shipman, who turns 85 years young on June 24. Have a wonderful day, Phyllis. Happy anniversary greetings to Allan and Julie Melton on their special day, June 25. Have a great day you two. Happy birthday to a young man, Ryan Lauterbach, as he enjoys his special day June 25. Have a wonderful day Ryan. Happy birthday to Joshua Hendeen June 25 as he enjoys his special day with many more. Anniversary greeting goes out to Jim and Sandy Atkinson as they celebrate their 49th anniversary together on June 26. Happy birthday to Debbie Doriott as she enjoys her special day June 26. Have a great one, Debbie. Happy anniversary to Justin and Kate Stariha as they celebrate their special day together on June 28 with many more. Happy birthday to Barb Rawling on her special day June 28. Have a wonderful day, Barb. Get-well wishes go out to Jim Toll who spent last week at Shell Lake hospital due to a blood clot in his leg. He is now home. Hope you are feeling much better, Jim. Visiting with Jim recently were Larry and Ruth Hopke who are camping out in their camper in Jim’s yard. Dave Toll spent the weekend with his dad. Saturday Jim took in the dairy breakfast at the Crosby brothers’ farm along with Tammy Moe, Turner and Tasihana. Jim says it was really nice. The pancakes and ham hit the spot. Table Talk: In your lifetime, what is one family that you really admire and why? I have three that stick out in my mind and it would be hard to chose. We had quite a parade going by our farm this last week. Yes, first came a bigger white truck, then a yellow Cat tractor with equipment, then a second Cat with equipment with both Cats on tracks, followed by a John Deere with equipment, then a red tractor was the caboose. Yes, it was Ken and Donna Russell’s crew heading west past our farm to plant a crop of beans I think. The crew got in with those big tractors and equipment and planted the field. Now we just have to get plenty of rain to make those little beans grow. We have unwanted visitors in our

township called tent worms. They’re in those nest-like cocoons we see in trees along our roads. They eat the leaves off our trees. I read that in Wisconsin that those ishy armyworms are back to visit us again. It’s been years since we’ve had them in our neighborhood. The last time farmers in our area had to have airplanes spray the crops. Looking at our town bell in the paper, which didn’t get taken by the 2001 tornado, I find myself lookin’ at the picture of it. It was left behind, I feel and many others, as a symbol that we had to pull up those boots and get to work as teams to clean up after that raging, angry tornado leaving three people dead: Tim Haseltine, Ruth Schultz and Sylvan Stellrecht, plus so much destroyed. With that bell behind us, we went forth with faith in our hearts and not lookin’ back. Yes, I’m proud of the Dewey Country residents and all the people who came to help get our wonderful community put back together. Our deepest sympathy to the family of Angie Ellanson, 39, who passed away last week. LaVonne Soholt baked a special birthday cake and brought it out to Helen VanSelus on Friday to help her celebrate. Happy birthday to you Helen on June 19 with many more to come. My little Rory is doin’ just great. Yes, he listens really well now and loves to be outside. He is so frisky and just runs and runs after he’s wound up his tail. Yah better get out of his way when he runs in the house or he’ll mow yah down. He’s one of a kind and so faithful to me. Wherever I go, I try to take him along. When he sees me changing clothes he goes wild around the house and back to me as he knows he’s going in the car where he snuggles up to me on the driver’s seat and he’s very content. Such a dog! Mark June 25 on your calendars. Yes, Clover Meadows Winery will be having a wine- and cheese-tasting party. They have 15 varieties of organic wine along with cheese to sample. This is a fundraiser for the Burnett County Humane Society from 2-5 p.m. The winery is located on CTH B. They will have music. Help those little animals out as it would be appreciated. Did you know the last Tri-County Dairy Breakfast at the Washburn County Fairgrounds on June 11 was the 32nd breakfast since it was started in 1980? Yes, Don and Charlotte Furchtenicht had the first breakfast in their house basement with about 450 people attending. Since then it has grown to nearly 2,000 people at these breakfasts to honor our farm families. Enjoying Father’s Day at Jim and Sandy Atkinson’s were Noel and Patty Beaufeaux and Mitch, and Lisa and Charlie Otto. Dinner was shared along with good family time. Sandy tells us their son, Jimmy, had surgery recently and may be faced with more. Please keep Jimmy in your special thoughts and prayers. Those yummy strawberries are now ready. Check out the local strawberry ads in the Advertiser and newspaper. Talking with Gretchen Best we find

Jerry and Gretchen were in Minot, N.D., leaving a week ago Friday as their uncle has passed away and they had a memorial service for him. The Bests drove through several towns in the Dakotas and found lots and lots of water. Houses were under water, trains couldn’t run as the tracks were under water, crops were under water, which had to be replanted. Gretchen said 260 homes were ruined. In some areas the parks were closed with picnic tables floating. Jerry and Gretchen took in the Theodore Roosevelt Park, both north and south, and they were in Deadwood, S.D., taking in the area. Gretchen’s sisters, Barb Johnson, and Gail Kobernick, picked up their mom, Lillian Strege, at Luck and the three gals were in the Dakotas for the memorial. Mitch Strege, Gretch’s brother, also drove out. Gretch says they got to see a number of relatives she hasn’t seen for quite some time. The Bests came home last Thursday. Gretch said we are so lucky to live where we do and not have all that flooding. Talking with Beth Crosby, she tells us they had a fantastic and beautiful turnout, with the weather cooperating, at the dairy breakfast with over 1,600 coming to enjoy the dairy breakfast at their sons’. They ran out of food and brought more in Beth said. Many people commented on how nice it was to have it on a farm and to see those beautiful bossies. Many looked at the free stalls in the brothers’ barn and commented on the beautiful cows the brothers had. The brothers worked hard for weeks, painting and getting it spic and span for the breakfast. Beth says they had people from Washington, California, Texas, Florida, Nevada, Illinois, Ohio, Minnesota and Wisconsin. This dairy farm was started with Herman and Elsie Crosby in 1919 and has been in dairy since. Hats of to those hardworking Crosbys. Saturday, Kylie Mortensen became the bride of Patrick Bullion along Gull Lake. The wedding party and others took a pontoon across the lake after the 4 p.m. wedding. They enjoyed the reception at 5 p.m. at Wolf’s Point Bar and Grill. May the newlyweds enjoy many happy years together. Chad and Ashley Crosby, Chase and Morgan spent the weekend at the Crosbys with Chad helping whatever. They left for home in Madison on Sunday afternoon. Tom and Sunshine Crosby enjoyed a grill-out for family members along with hired help, which everyone enjoyed after such a busy weekend. Marv and Gladys Knoop enjoyed Father’s Day supper at Mark and Noel Knoop, Bryan and Alecia’s. Also visiting Marv and Gladys were their son Steve and his fiancée Jodi, and daughter Karen Vanderhoof. Our Dewey Country weatherman tells us we had 3-9/10 inches of rain so far in June, which we needed. Marv and his friend Dennis Zwort enjoyed some fishing together, coming home with a nice catch of crappies. Talking with Loretta VanSelus we find John and Paula Powell, Tammy, Sierra and Cheyenne from Montana will be going home on Tuesday. While here, the

little girls went to Bible School at the Church of the Nazarene in Spooner. They also played mini golf and enjoyed go-carting at Bulik’s. Saturday they all took in the dairy breakfast at the Crosby farm and later they went to Hayward to Wilderness Walk. Father’s Day the girls took John out to the China Buffet to celebrate. Jarrett and Bev Cassellius and son Erik came Thursday night to Carl and Betty Meister’s, staying over. Saturday they all took in the dairy breakfast at the Crosbys. The Casselliuses left for home Saturday noon. My daughter, Paula, came home for the weekend from Eau Claire. We sure had a good visit and did a lot of things together. Sunday afternoon Penny and Jeff Ladd, Rem, Ry and Ree came for a grill-out with us and also son Richy. Penny and I picked up more veggie plants and flowers. Paula left for home Monday morning, taking Rylee and Reyana home on the way back. Those little girls love to have sleepovers. Vicki and Don Trott, Peggy Vesta and Don Lane, Allan Melton and Richard and Karen Melton were over to Cecil and Evelyn Melton’s on Sunday helping Cecil celebrate Father’s Day. Saturday some of the Melton family got together at Riverstreet Restaurant for breakfast and a good visit. Last Sunday, Evelyn attended a wedding shower for her granddaughter, Sarah Melton, daughter of Richard and Karen Melton at the Cornerstone Church in Spooner. Sarah and her fiancé, Jeff Chandler, will be married July 23 at the Wesleyan Church in Spooner with the reception at Cornerstone Church in Spooner. They plan to live in Ladysmith. Table Talk: What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning and what’s the last thing you think of before you fall asleep at night? Sunshine, Sunshine, Sunshine! News from the Fjelstad Palace finds Gary and Sue Peterson visiting Bob and Kris. Tuesday the Lakeview UMC ladies served lunch after the graveside services for Betty Searles. Wednesday Bob and Karen Garcia had a neighborhood party with Bob and Kris, Jerry and Janice Larson and Ron and Sara Schreffler bringing munchies and all had a good visit. Wednesday Kris also made chocolate fudge as it was National Fudge Day. Thursday Kris visited Marv and Gladys Knoop taking some fudge for them to enjoy. I hear Gladys has a sweet tooth, especially for chocolate fudge. Friday the Clam River Tuesday Club ladies gathered at Beth Crosbys to wrap silverware in napkins for the dairy breakfast. Friday Bob visited Elmer Talbert and Pam Pomykala. Saturday morning, Bob and Kris enjoyed the dairy breakfast at Crosbys. Sunday visitors at Bob and Kris’ were Jon and Maija-Liisa Gauvin, as were Elmer Talbert and Pam Pomykala. Sunday Bob and Kris enjoyed supper at Tony’s. Bryan Knoop visited Bob on Sunday evening. Scatter sunshine! Have a great week!

by Brian Bull Wisconsin Public Radio RACINE - The Racine School Board this week will discuss the possibility of suing the state over budget cuts to education. Public education funds will be slashed by $800 million under the new budget. Paired with a reduction in how much schools can collect from property taxes per student, the loss in revenue for districts is estimated at $1.6 billion. Stacy Tapp, spokeswoman for the Racine Unified School District, says they’ve been getting legal guidance and

will present their findings to the school board. “We’ve been very clear that the current budget takes $24 million in cuts to the district, and this new addition of the vouchers will severely impact the district even further.” Among those watching is Bob Peterson, editor of “Rethinking Schools” – a nonprofit journal promoting progressive education. He says if Racine Schools take legal action, other districts may consider doing the same. “I would imagine that if the case does go to court, that there’d be at least

friends of the court briefs filed in support of Racine,” says Peterson. “Certainly, several school districts are in the same case as Racine. In fact, I’d figure that Milwaukee has even more basis for feeling that there’s some unfairness in terms of how the funding cuts have come down.” Tom Beebe of the Wisconsin Alliance for Excellent Schools says there’s a good chance Racine could make a strong case against the budget cuts, if it can prove the state hasn’t provided children with a proper education. “I think that’s hard for administrators

and board members to do because they see that as saying that they’ve failed,” says Beebe. “What they’re really saying … and I think what they have to gin up the courage to say is … ‘No, it’s not we that are failing, it’s the state that is failing, and that’s why we’re bringing this lawsuit.’” Racine Unified has long struggled with funding issues given its lower property values, and its reliance on state aid.

Things are sure getting green. The raised beds are growing. The hostas around the building and under the raised beds are something else. They are growing like weeds. The bench is here waiting for someone to put it together. Our musical night was great. We plan on another one in August. More on that later. Our book club is meeting next week, the last Friday of the month. We practiced Wii bowling last Wednesday and sure had fun. Until we get organized, we’ll play on Wednesdays after lunch. The Cribbage players are doing well. I don’t have any scores however. The flowers around town sure are beautiful. We have a great town here. My garden is coming along slowly. The ground is sandy so it needs lots of rain. The rain was welcome here at the apartments where the ground was

seeded around where the new patios were put in. Our friend Doris went to dog-sit her son’s dog while he went on a fishing trip. I went to my daughter, Rita’s, the other night. My granddaughter, Barbie, made a dish; I don’t know the name of. It was shells with cheese in with a tomato sauce and herbs. It was very good. My granddaughter, Bev, and her daughter, Cheyenne, were there, too, and also Barbie’s son, Ayden. Barbie lives in Nebraska. Her husband is in the Air Force. I toured Rita’s flower garden. It sure is beautiful. Her snowball bush is full of snowballs, just gorgeous. I brought home some of her irises. They are big and beautiful. The colors are great, salmons, violets, yellows, lavender and pinks. Happiness held is the seed, happiness shared is the flower.

June 18 – Linda Debora Healey, volunteer from Minong, joined the Saturday habitat maintenance volunteers. We are starting to place plant identification stakes next to emerged native wildflowers, trees, shrubs and native grasses. The signage will help visitors to identify plants in the remnant native tall grass prairie that is dedicated as a Monarch Butterfly Habitat. There is a new theme in the accent container gardens this year. Diane Dryden planted fragrant geraniums and marigolds along with other colorful plant companions. Perhaps the essential oils from the plants will keep mosquitoes at bay. Be sure to touch the plants but don’t pick them. June 21 – Hayward Garden Club, Sawyer County, attended a tour of the Monarch Butterfly Habitat at 12:30 p.m. June 23 – 1 p.m., native bee count will take place at the north habitat near the beach. Meet at the visitors center/store at 12:45 p.m. and we will proceed to the habitat. At 2 p.m. we will conduct another bee count at the Wild Butterfly Habitat on the south side of Shell Lake. Several people in four states have contacted Happy Tonics with a wish to participate in a native bee count from their own backyards and gardens. Happy Tonics has invited Jim VanMoorleham, volunteer, and Tony and Stacy Bennett, owners of Stony’s in Minong, to attend the Destination Marketing Organization’s meeting in Spooner. Greg Vreeland and wife Mardell will host the Great Northern Railroad dinner train-ride meeting. This year we expect businesses from several counties to at-

The full moon last week changed the weather pattern to a rainy one, so as of this writing my rain gauge is up to nearly 3 inches and the forecast says a lot more is coming. Young fawns are being seen now out and about and are so precious. Songbirds are nesting so they aren’t at the feeders as much. It’s almost strawberry-picking time and those fresh locals are so delicious! Mary West got home Wednesday after staying since last December with her daughter, Lynda, in Cheyenne, Wyo. She flew into the Twin Cities and Sam picked her up. She said it was nice to be back. Ericka Hutton flew up with daughter Lainy from Canyon, Texas, on Friday so Lainy can spend two weeks with grandparents, Greg and Sue Krantz. Ericka visited her brother, Matt and Christi in Eau Claire on Sunday en route back to the airport. Greg and Sue Krantz attended a cookout, birthday party for Sue’s brother Bill and their mom Sue Smith and celebrated Father’s Day at Bill and Jackie Smith’s in Shell Lake with their family on Sunday. Belated birthday wishes. Virginia Stodola visited her cousin Camilla Johnson in Haugen on Sunday. Eunice Hyllested, Rice Lake, was also there so they enjoyed a great visit. Rocky and Pat Semm spent Father’s Day with their girls and families at daughter Lisa Stodola’s in Haugen with Suzie and Seth Sundeen and their four from Elk Mound, Mary and Todd Doanes and Drew from Rice Lake. It was also Rocky and Pat’s 41st wedding anniversary. Congratulations. Anton and Gloria Frey enjoyed a fish fry at the Shell Lake campground with daughter Jan, Jeff and Pete Frey and son Ben who camped there Wednesday through Sunday.

Willie and Vicki Lombard went to Chippewa Falls on Saturday and attended her nephew, Jake’s, high school graduation party at her sister’s, Sue and Tim Albee’s. Sarona folks extend sympathy to the family of Mary

Pinter, 87. Her funeral was held at St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Sarona on June 15 with burial in Sarona Cemetery. A week ago Saturday, away folks coming for Blanche Bergman’s funeral were her sister, Alyce Obertin, of New London. At 84, she is the last one living of her family. Her son and wife, Pat and Linda Obertin of New Hampshire attended as did Ann Marie Haag’s son Paul and Lisa Armour from St. Paul, Minn. Blanche’s favorite color was green so the pallbearers wore green shirts and ties for the funeral. A week ago Friday, Marilyn Zimmerman attended the sectional finals, the Rice Lake and BaldwinWoodville game, as they have been following the team. Marilyn and Renee attended Ivan and Linda Stodola’s granddaughter Teegan’s first birthday party.

Jolene Loew spent several days in the Rice Lake hospital but is home and feeling better. Her daughter Tammy and her granddaughter Christina, Villa Park, Ill., spent the past week here with her while husband Al and a group were in Canada on a fishing trip. I stopped over one day and had a nice visit. Folks were saddened of the sudden death of Angelica Ellanson, 39, Sarona. I didn’t know her but so many did as she was a registered nurse and nurse practitioner at Spooner Health System and their children went to Shell Lake Schools. Deepest sympathy to the family from Sarona folks. Last Sunday and Monday, Russ and Nancy Furchtenicht took their grands, Jillian and Jaxson, to Hayward to see the big fish and then to AmericInn in Ashland for the night where they enjoyed the water park on the sandy beach of Lake Superior.

Sunday, Corey and Linda Furchtenicht enjoyed dinner out celebrating Linda’s and her mother Coriene Slabaugh’s birthdays and Father’s Day. Tuesday afternoon Glenview brought a busload of residents out to Fuernot Farms for a tour of the farm. They watched the milking and saw how different farming is today than it was in their day. Danny Diekman was the van driver so it was nice seeing him too. Russ gave the tour and Nancy treated them to sugar cookies

and ice-cream cups. What an enjoyable group. Mary Krantz and I enjoyed our senior class eat-out at Riverbend in Trego on Wednesday with Ray and Gerene Smith in charge.

Tyler Crosby takes fifirrst at dairy judging contest

CUMBERLAND — The 2011 Barron County 4-H Dairy Judging Contest was held on Sunday evening, June 5, at Meadow Ridge Jerseys, owned by Roger and Darice Riebe and family, rural Cumberland. There were 32 youths invited to the contest with many participating in previous dairy-judging farm workouts. Contestants judged a fall yearling class, a 2year-old cow class, a 3-year-old cow class, and a 4-yearold cow class. Senior division contestants gave reasons on the two-year-old class. Junior division contestants answered type-analysis questions, referring to the strengths and weaknesses of the two cow classes. Tyler Crosby, Shell Lake, a member of Go-Getters 4-H Club, took first place with 247 points, out of a possible 275 points, in the junior division for ages 9-13. Also part of the junior team is Katie Crosby, Shell Lake, GoGetters 4-H Club.

Trophy sponsors for each of the first three division place winners were Russell and Karen Rindsig, rural Sarona, and the Barron County Dairy Youth Fund for fourth- and fifth-place winners. The values of dairy judging practices and contests have long-term benefits. The youth learn to formulate quick, accurate decisions. They also improve their powers of observation, their organizational skills, and their ability to solve problems and learn to communicate ideas. Most importantly, prospective employers appreciate these talents and make former judging-team members their first choice when jobs become available. For more information regarding this worthwhile activity, please contact Steve Fronk at 715-296-0165 or email Steve at: You can also contact the Barron County Extension Office at 715-5376250. — submitted

Par for Pets raises funds for WCAHS

MINONG — Thirty-nine golfers teed off the front nine at Black Bear Golf and Tennis Club in Minong on Saturday, June 11, for the fourth-annual Washburn County Area Humane Society Par for Pets Fundraiser. Rhonda and John Passolt were hosts. There was concern about the weather at the start, but the sun managed to peek out around clouds for the 2 p.m. shotgun start and continued to stay out the rest of the afternoon.

First place of $125 was awarded to the team of Tino Martinez, Jim Danielwicz, Luke Martinez, Ross Magee and caddie Rick James. Their score of 9 under, or a 27, was outstanding. This fundraising event raised a little over $1,700 for the Washburn County Area Humane Society shelter. It included golf, hole prizes, raffles, a silent auction and a putting contest for this four-person, nine-hole scramble. — submitted

Dairy breakfast at the Crosby family farm

The rain came and went but that did not dampen the spirits of the 1,500 people who came to have breakfast with the Shorty and Melissa, Tom and Sunshine Crosby family. It was an opportunity for many to find their roots or to discover where their food comes from.

T-ball players fifinnish their season

Coach Mark Lehnherr is giving advice to Jonathan Mortensen in a T-ball game. It is a time to learn the basics and to learn how to have fun. The players will have years of competitive sports ahead of them. In T-ball everyone gets to play, everyone gets to bat in every inning and the score is not kept.

When the action got slow, Avery Skow did what most T-ballers do, find something entertaining. In this case, she played in the dirt.

It was a championship season for the Spooner High School baseball team. With a 23-4 season, they beat Northwestern 3-1 in the regional championship, a 9-8 win over Somerset to earned them the sectional championship and the 7-1 win over Madison Edgewood gave them a second place at state. They lost 12-1 to a very good Ripon team in the final game of the Division 2 state championship game. Jackson Lucius is proud of his new haircut; now for the rest of the story. As the coach’s son, he has about 15 big brothers who look after him and he looks up to them. After the state tournament, the superstitious players finally got their hair cut, and Jackson was right there with them.

Spooner women bowlers win big time at state

APPLETON — Many four-women bowling teams from the area took off at different times this spring heading to the state bowling tournament in Appleton.

The fun of make-believe


Heart Lake by Helen Pederson

by Mary B. Olsen, Shell Lake Babies are precious. One of the really great things is the game of peekaboo. The first time the baby responds to the mother’s peekaboo is surely an occasion for celebration. The baby hides his or her eyes and responds by peeking out of the blanket, and then the baby squeals and the mother laughs. It is repeated and a kind of joy is in the air. They two are indulging in the art of drama. They are both pretending. It’s a wonderful human quality. All the mothers I know have played patty-cake, clapping the little hands for the baby, and then the baby claps hands, too, along with the rhyme the mother sings. It makes mother and baby feel shared fun, the fun of games. It is the pleasure of teamwork and the inborn joyful response we all find in the gift of make-believe. In my family, as a child, our mother let us children develop our sense of the dramatic in many ways. She gave us what we called our property box It was an old trunk she filled with clothes that had outworn their usefulness or had fallen from fashion. She put in fancy hats, a cape, a fur muff, high-heeled shoes, belts and colorful sashes, Oriental pajamas, and a variety of dresses, full skirts and long-sleeved shirts. What fun we had dressing up, and pretending to be other people. My sister and I could be elegant ladies, maybe a princess or a queen. We could be characters in the books we read, or in the movies, stars or servant girls. We amused ourselves, often on rainy days, or when we were confined by illness or any time we chose to indulge in the fun of make-believe. We could even dress

our cats from our property-box items and wheel them around outdoors in a baby buggy. The boys, actually, didn’t play dressing-up like us girls, except to tease us a little about our outlandish getups. They liked to dress up, mostly on Halloween, or for a costume party, or to hoodwink someone for the fun of it. I don’t think pretending to be someone else is limited to the females. Both hes and shes respond to drama and all enjoy a good story or play. When my children were growing up they liked to pretend and they would pretend to be cowboys or Indians, or cowgirls, or robots or spacemen. Costumes were improvised. They tried to be characters, from movies and television, as well. We had no money for outfits in the stores, but their costumes were probably just as much fun for them. One thing we did was have our own kind of amateur hour. We would all gather in our living room, and each of the kids would perform in some way. The rest of us sat as an audience, and applauded their efforts. They might sing or play a song on the guitar, or two or three could combine and do an act. They might do an impression or a character in a TV program or a celebrity. Sometimes they would do someone and we had to guess who they were pretending to be. It might be someone like Gomer Pyle, “Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!” or one of the boys might be a female singer. Singalongs were enjoyable, too. Sometimes we sang hymns but usually it was oldtime songs that we knew by heart. In these times when our pocketbooks are almost empty people may be more inclined to add drama to their family life at home rather than the more expensive kinds of entertainment outside their homes. Like they say, “The best things in life are free.”

We woke up to a gray day and it sounds as if we will get rain for three days. I think we’ve had enough and we need sun to dry up the fields. I hope all you fathers had a great day. The dairy breakfast held at Crosby’s was rather a wet one but reports they still had a good crowd and good food. Congratulations to all the family and workers. Jeff Pederson and son Brent returned from a trip to Canada with the Marker Family. Fishing was great. Peder Pederson, Suzi and John Anderson enjoyed the Father’s Day breakfast put on by the moms at United Pentacostal Church in Spooner. On Saturday, Peder went to the graduation party for his grandson, Derek, who graduated from the ABF High School in St. Paul, Minn. Cheri Minot and girls Michelle and Tonya and Suzi and Tom Anderson also attended. Congratulations, Derek. Jude and Mike Bolterman spent Sunday afternoon shopping in Rice Lake and Jude and Renee Blazer took Mike and Joel out to eat at Lakeview Saturday evening for an early Father’s Day. Arlys Santiago attended church services at Long Lake Lutheran on Sunday and stopped at the home of Norman and Donna Ness for a short visit. Saturday evening, Arlys attended the 50th anniversary party for Lee and Dottie Swan and the hoedown in the barn later. Congratulations to you, Dottie and Lee. Saturday morning, Mary and John Marschall braved the weather and attended the pancake breakfast at the Crosby farm. Sunday afternoon, they took in the wedding of Laura and Raymond Freer in Cumberland. Congratulations to the Freers. On Saturday night, Brenda Pederson visited her mom, Mary Krantz, while Jeff visited with me. In the evening they

were supper guests of Jarid and Rachel and kids. The Mortensen families got together at the Mike Governoski’s for a potluck on Sunday. It was good to see the former Christine Cardwell and two children at Salem church services Sunday morning. Also the former Jill Swan (Graveson) of Eau Claire was there. Jill is recuperating from a heart attack. Good to see you girls. A bus for the Glenview tenants to the Fuernot Farm on Thursday was very much enjoyed. It’s a lot different than my dad had in Timberland in the 1930s and 1940s. We were treated to ice cream and cheese before leaving for home. Thanks to Russ and Nancy. Tooker and his mom and dad came along with us. They are visiting from Florida, but will return home next week. All of Roger and Mavis Flach’s family stopped to see them on Sunday to wish Roger a happy Father’s Day. Sunday night, Sue Winner stopped to see Helen V. Pederson and have a cup of coffee. She and Larry went to St. Croix Falls to meet his family for supper. Happy birthday to Stephanie Pederson in Eau Claire, celebrating a birthday on Thursday, June 23. Visiting Abner and Carol Odden in Cumberland for a few days, were their daughter Barb and Dick Weber and Wendy and Nora of Colorado and their son Tim and wife Laura and family, from Virginia. Abner is home now from the nursing home. We wish you well, Ab. A small town is a place where you don’t have to go anywhere to get away from it all.

Hi there. Hope you had a wonderful Father’s Day. I got so chatty last week, had so many things to tell you about, that I completely forgot about wishing you a happy Father’s Day. The Red Brick Cafe was super busy Sunday morning with so many people bringing their dads in for the buffet. I was really glad we stopped in because, in addition to the great food, I had a chance to visit with Bev and Joe Blank from Peoria, Ill. I think that I used to wait on Bev and Joe when I worked at the Hilltop many years ago. Anyway, it was certainly nice to get a chance to chat with them for a while. Ruth and Dick Grover traveled to Motley, Minn., last week to visit with Ruth’s brother and sister-in-law. Ruth’s brother is in his 90s, and is not well, he’s having some heart problems, and Ruth asked that we keep him in our prayers. She said that her sister-in-law is doing everything she can to care for him, and she asked that we pray for her sister-in-law too. Sometimes it’s a little hard to remember that caregivers need at least as much support as those they are caring for. While Ruth and Dick were in Minnesota, they attended worship service at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran in Clarissa. Our first student pastor, Melissa Ehrhardt, is now pastor of that church, and Ruth and Dick wanted to stop by and see how she is doing. They said that it’s a very nice church, there were about 150 people attending the morning they were there, and that Melissa was her usual, happy, enthusiastic self. Hippie (David) Ullom, his father-inlaw, Ralph, and his son-in-law, Gus, went on a fishing trip to English River in Canada a couple of weeks ago, and Hippie came home with a humongous (10 pound) walleye. He caught it on June 4.

He showed us a picture of it, and it was impressive. He is definitely going to have it mounted. I’m not sure about the other guys, but it sounded like Hippie had a fantastic time. Morgan Straw was at the Red Brick Monday morning with her dad, Marvin. Boy, Morgan is growing like a weed. She finished second grade this year and is looking forward to going into third grade in the fall. I asked her what she is going to do this summer and it sounds like she will be spending a lot of time gardening. She has her very own garden and is growing some herbs, pumpkins and cucumbers. Marvin thought there might be some zucchini in there too. Oh, and she planted marigolds. I said that would probably keep the animals out of the garden, but Marvin sounded a little doubtful about that. Time will tell. Marilynn Shaurette asked me to put in special thank-you to Jodi Kay, Curt and Mary Kay Hefty’s daughter, for her encouragement during the time that Marilynn was training for and competing in the triathlon. If it hadn’t been for Jodi prodding Marilynn for the past few years to come up and compete, she would never have gotten around to it. Anyway, Marilynn is very grateful to Jodi for boosting her confidence to the point that she tried and succeeded in finishing the triathlon. Jodi Pease called on Monday morning to let us know that their son Chad, who graduated from Cumberland this past month, is now at Fort Benning, Ga., taking basic training. He called home to let his parents know that he arrived safely, is surviving the heat and is doing well. Chad will be staying at Fort Benning after he finishes basic to attend infantry school. Jodi said that Chad is excited to be serving his country in the military and

that they are very proud of him. Almost as an afterthought, Jodi mentioned that she ran Grandma’s Marathon on Saturday. She finished in 3 hours and 45 minutes. Wow! It would have taken me three days. Congratulations Jodi — that’s amazing. The friendly neighborhood moocher called Sunday to let us know that he forgot a very important ingredient for the water pie recipe he gave us last week. After you get all the stuff poured into the pie crust, you are supposed to dot the top with lots of butter. So, if you did try the recipe and it wasn’t the greatest, try it again with the butter. Any food tastes good if you put enough butter on it. How did you like that wonderful thunder and lightning storm we had on Friday night? There aren’t many things nicer to listen to, are there? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like scary storms, but the nice, gentle rumbling is great. I have to tell you one more thing about our trip to Guam. Remember when I mentioned how friendly the people there were? Well, when we were in the airport to catch the flight home, we were wandering aimlessly around and a man walked up to us to ask us if he could help us find anything. Then he asked Duane if he was Mr. Pieper. Wow — here we are halfway around the world and someone knows Duane’s name. Well, come to find out, he 539378 was the coach for one of 33-34b,c 44-45r

the teams the twins were on, and he said that they spoke so highly of their grandparents that he just had to come and meet us. His name was Mr. Taitano, and we were so impressed that he came all the way to the airport just on the off chance that he might meet us. Like I said before, the people went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We loved it there. Pat Olson gave me the nicest (early) birthday present. It’s a picture of my mom and me standing together when I was about 4 years old. It’s hard to believe I was ever that little. I’m going to frame it and hang it on the wall. That’s about all I know from Barronett this week. Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next time.

Angelica Lynn Ellanson

Rejected by a college, the banker’s son said to his father, “If you really cared for me, you’d have pulled some wires to get me into college.” “I know,” said the father, “the TV, the telephone and the ignition wires pulled out would have done for a start.” But the man with a push will pass the man with a pull. For every achievement, there’s a cost. For every goal there’s a foe. For every victory, there’s a sacrifice. For every triumph, there’s a struggle. The Bible says, “Work hard so God can say to you, ‘Well done.’ Be a good workman, one who does not need to be ashamed when God examines your work.” Visit us at:

Thank You

Thank you so much to all our friends for your generous outpouring of sympathy, support and love after the sudden death of Bruce Taber. Your friendship and hugs have meant more to us than I can ever begin to express. God bless all of you,

Angelica (Angie) Lynn Ellanson, 39, Sarona, died Sunday, June 12, 2011, at Spooner Health System after a sudden illness. Angie was born Jan. 21, 1972, to Dennis and Judy (McMullen) Hereid in New Hampton, Iowa. She was confirmed at St. John Lutheran Church in Sumner and graduated from Sumner Community Schools in 1990. Angie attended the University of Northern Iowa and Allen College, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in nursing in 1996. She earned her Master of Arts in art from St. Scholastica in 2006, and the Board of Nursing granted her a license as a certified nurse practitioner in 2006 as well. Angie worked as a registered nurse at Spooner Health System and as a nurse practitioner at the Duluth Clinic in Spooner. She also donated time at The Rice Lake Area Free Clinic. Angie was united in marriage with Doug Ellanson on June 25, 1999, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sumner. Angie was a member of the Washburn County Child Death Board, the National Nursing Association and

Ducks Unlimited. She enjoyed quilting, knitting and gardening. She was also an avid snowmobiler and a Harley-Davidson enthusiast. Angie loved working with her patients, especially children and the elderly. Angie is survived by her husband, Doug; her children, Luke Wagar-Ellanson, Kennedy and Ty, all of Sarona; her parents, Dennis and Judy Hereid, Sumner, Iowa; two brothers, Shawn (Donna) Hereid, Tripoli, Iowa, and Drew Hereid, Waterloo, Iowa; and seven nephews. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Arthur and Evelyn (White) McMullen; paternal grandparents, Merle and Adis (Knutson); and a brother, Adam, in infancy. Funeral services were held June 16 at the Spooner High School Auditorium with Pastor Brent Berkesch officiating. Music was provided by Marilyn Loder and Destiny Schultz. A funeral service and burial were held June 18 in her hometown of New Hampton, Iowa. Casket bearers were Jake Ellanson, Eric Ellanson, Adam Ellanson, Jason Robertson, Blaine Hageman and Colin Hageman. The Taylor Family Funeral Home, Spooner, was entrusted with arrangements.

by Gilman Halsted Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - Gov. Scott Walker says the new restrictions on collective bargaining rights for public employees are already resulting in balanced budgets for cities and school districts. But teachers unions and local school officials don't see it that way. The collective bargaining law is not in effect yet and is currently being challenged in federal court. If and when it goes into effect it would eliminate the right of unions to bargain anything except wages and benefits and ties salary increases to the consumer price index. Last week, Walker said that reform was already working in his hometown of Wauwatosa, where he says the tax levy is actually going to go down and where jobs in the school district will be preserved. "That's because the reforms are working, and they are going to work even more in the future," says Walker. "And when they do, that's going to get this state back on

track and get us working again." "The union bosses only made concessions because it became apparent the long-term fiscal reforms were going to become law," adds Cullen Werwie, a spokesman for Walker. But Wauwatosa School Superintendent Phil Ertl says it was state budget cuts that prompted his local unions to reach an agreement on a salary freeze. "I think we've got some great employees that really recognize what we're trying to accomplish in this school district, and they understood what we needed to get done," says Ertl. "They could have just sat back and said, `We have a contract until 2013 and we're not going to step up.' "And the teachers were willing to step forward too, even though the budget bill still isn't passed." Meanwhile, Wisconsin Education Association Council President Mary Bell says once the law takes effect school districts will have a harder, not an easier, time making ends meet.

Debate continues over collective bargaining issue

by Rich Kremer Wisconsin Public Radio WESTERN WISCONSIN - Two school districts in western Wisconsin have voted to abolish their race-based nicknames and logos. The Menomonie School District has been known since the 1930s as the home of the Indians. But recently, the school board abolished the moniker and the logo for good with a 7-1 vote. The lone no vote was cast by school board member and Menomonie Mayor Randy Knaack. He says the decision shouldn’t have been limited to the school board. “A matter of this magnitude and importance to the community needs the entire community feedback,” says Knaack. “And with that I thought maybe a referendum might be a better choice than school board members making that choice for the community.” The Menomonie School Board has attempted to remove the Indians nickname

and logo before. In 1996, that led to the recall of three school board members and a referendum that kept the logo and nickname the same. But District Superintendent Chris Stratton says things are different now. She says it was only a matter of time before their Indians identity was challenged due the state Indian mascot law, which lets the Department of Public Instruction order schools to stop using race-based logos, names or mascots if a district’s residents complain. “If a decision would have been made to do something like a referendum or even a decision would have been made to wait for a complaint it is very likely, almost 100-percent guaranteed, that a complaint would have been filed with DPI.” Also, the Osseo-Fairchild School Board voted unanimously to drop its 40-yearold Chieftains nickname after being ordered to do so by the Department of Public Instruction last year.

A once-<None>discarded pet, this alligator has found a home with Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Niche LLC, an exotic animal rescue. The alligator and other discarded exotic pets will be used to help children to appreciate the animals from the rain forest.

The children had a chance to get up close and maybe too personal with a young Komodo dragon. This large lizard was a pet until its owners realized it would eventually reach 150 pounds. The program mission is to help educate so this will not be so common.

Author of mystery series to hold book signing

SPOONER — William Kent Krueger, author of the best-selling Cork O’Connor mystery series, will be at Northwind Book & Fiber in downtown Spooner on Thursday, June 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. He will be available to sign books and will speak at 7 p.m. Krueger is from St. Paul, Minn., and has set his 10book-and-counting mystery series in a fictional town in the Boundary Waters. His protagonist, Cork O’Connor, is a retired cop, who is part Irish and part Anishinaabe Indian. He has returned to Minnesota and his family, but retirement is not in the picture. The north woods is far from quiet, as murders, kidnappings and more all occur on his watch. Krueger’s stories are keep-you-uplate page-turners. His newest, “Vermilion Drift,” has just come out in paperback. In it, O’Connor discovers six dead bodies in an iron mine—five a half century old and one less than a week old. And fans are eagerly awaiting his next book, “Northwest Angle,” which will be in stores on Aug. 30.

Schools working to settle teachers contracts

by Brian Bull Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - With the collective bargaining law now looking like a done deal, many school districts are finalizing teacher contracts before it's implemented. Last March, the Associated Press reported that roughly Author William Kent a third of the state's 424 districts had either extended existing contracts or signed off on new ones. Fifteen percent Krueger will be in were mulling over their options, while nearly half had Spooner, June 30. — taken no action. Photo submitted Barry Forbes of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards says it looks like that's changing, since the courts Any questions regarding the event can be directed to cleared the legislation, known as Wisconsin Act 10, last Northwind Book & Fiber at 715-635-6811. — from week. "I'm thinking a little more than half the schools in Northwind Book & Fiber Wisconsin have extended contracts for at least one year if not two years," says Forbes. "There are likely a few more thinking about it. I've spoken with a few schools that asked me when the implementation date of Wisconsin Act 10 would be." Forbes says that appears to be June 29, following the secretary of state's planned publication of the bill. He says contracts with collective bargaining agreements would be grandfathered in, if finalized before that date. The governor's collective bargaining law will do away with automatic payments to WEAC, the state's largest teachers union. WEAC spokeswoman Christina Brey says she won't speculate on how that may affect the union's finances. "We know however, that our members are as energized and activated as ever, based on the events of the last six months or so," says Brey. "We're getting out, we're talking to members, members are talking to members face to face about the future of our union, and why it's still important to remain advocates for public school kids." Brey says teachers can decide individually if they want to set up automatic payments with WEAC to cover union dues.
