Guard units slated for inactivation focus of town hall meetings CHIPPEWA FALLS/HAYWARD — Soldiers and elected officials met with Wisconsin National Guard leaders at two National Guard armories Saturday, Dec. 5, to discuss the impacts of pending force reductions. The meetings highlighted the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, recently passed by Congress, which eliminates 36 full-time positions in 2016 as well as an additional 274 traditional drill-status positions in the Wisconsin Army National Guard over the next two years. Maj. Gen. Donald P. Dunbar, Wisconsin adjutant general, spoke with Guard members at both the Chippewa Falls and Hayward National Guard armories. Impacted the most by the reductions are the Chippewa Falls-based 724th Engineer Battalion headquarters, the 949th Engineer Detachment (Survey and Design) and the 724th Engineer Battalion Forward Support Company in Hayward. “My commitment to you is that every soldier in the room has a future in the Wisconsin Army National Guard,” Dunbar said to the soldiers that were present at the meeting. Dunbar stressed the importance of maintaining unit strength and readiness up until the day the unit’s flags are furled. “We are still responsible to respond with the force structure that exists today until we actually make the change,” Dunbar added. He also said that the need for a National Guard presence in these locations remains important. U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy, a Hayward native representing Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District, commented on the pending reduction that will affect his district. “At a time of great international unrest, it is imperative that we do not limit our military capabilities or readiness,” Duffy said. “Last month, after discussing the

Gen. Dunbar, I urged the chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations to utilize the appropriations process to restore the Army National Guard’s troop levels. I will continue my efforts to work with them, and will also explore legislative solutions that would ensure our military is prepared to take on the looming threats facing our nation.” U.S. Reps. Ron Kind, Mark Pocan and Gwen Moore have also publicly expressed concern over the pending force reduction. The cuts to the Wisconsin Army National Guard will amount to a 3.6-percent decrease in strength, which would be

spaced out over the next three years. The number of soldiers is expected to decrease in 2016 by 151 with an additional reduction of 123 in 2017. Some of the losses will be spread throughout other units, but the majority of these reductions will be due to the inactivation of the 724th and the 949th. “We’re going to manage the loss of personnel through attrition,” Dunbar said, alluding to the state’s plan to make the transition as smooth as possible, allowing the reductions to take place as soldiers retire or decide to leave upon completion of their enlistments. Dunbar also outlined the losses that

will occur within full-time staff positions, which are state Active Guard Reserve and technician positions. “We are losing positions within the AGR and in our technician program, both of which are the foundations of our readiness,” he said. “These losses in personnel make it much more difficult for commanders and regular drilling Guard soldiers to prepare for drill weekends and annual training exercises because these are the people who plan and schedule critical tasks and events that are crucial to our readiness.” Full-time personnel who serve in temporary positions are not likely to be extended past their current terms, and normal attrition rates will serve as the key pathway toward the end goal of these mandated reductions. “You may have to retrain. You may have to go to a different unit. But you will always have a home in the Wisconsin Army National Guard,” the adjutant general said. The meetings were intended to address any concerns from soldiers who will be affected by this transition. After the town hall meeting, 1st Lt. Lisa Wiese, executive officer for the 724th FSC said, “As a leader in the company, I’m dedicated to stay with this company until the last day. “The feedback from the company is that it was absolutely the most supportive move that the state could have made,” Wiese continued, “to bring everybody in our chain of command together to answer the questions, from the simple ones to the complex ones. It really made a difference.” According to the National Guard Bureau, the units affected do not inactivate immediately, and the actual transition will not occur until 2017. — from WCVSO

Officials discuss implications of meth in Washburn County Danielle Danford | Staff writer SPOONER — A public presentation on the impact of methamphetamine in Washburn County was held on Tuesday, Dec. 8, at the Spooner High School to inform the public about the resurgence of meth in the community and the impact it is having. People directly involved in the wake of the impact shared information about the drug, why it has returned and its impacts on the local community. “Primarily it’s coming directly out of Mexico through different cities into the Twin Cities,” said Shawn Sutherland, special agent for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation, out of Eau Claire. According to Sutherland the cartels are getting amphetamine, meth’s parent drug, in large quantities from labs in countries like India, China and Germany. “So make no mistake, the users in Washburn County are contributing directly to the cartels in Mexico,” said Sutherland. For users in Washburn County, the cost of one gram of meth runs anywhere from $100 to $200. So when users don’t have the cash they need, they often turn to crimes like burglary and theft to support their habit. Law enforcement sees increasing crime as a direct impact of meth. Other presenters shared their knowledge on the impacts of meth, like Darren Gensen, from Plover, and Tiffany Richardson, Spooner, each in recovery from an addiction to meth. Gensen stated that if people want to make a difference against meth, they need to educate themselves, to fight the good fight against drugs.

The help is out there but we have to go out there and find the resources,” said Gensen. Since Gensen made the realization that staying addicted to meth would only lead to incarceration, insanity or death, he returned to school. Gensen now has an associate degree from WITC, works for the University - Wisconsin of Superior, and regularly shares his speech to bring awareness to the real dangers of meth. When Richardson started using meth she was a single parent of two kids, working two jobs. Richardson said there were times she forgot her kids at day care, didn’t notice they weren’t home or didn’t

bring them to school. “What finally got me was I looked in my children’s eyes and they were red, from the exposure to meth and that’s when I told myself ‘I need to stop,’” said Richardson.  As a result of her drug use, her children were placed away from her, one with her mother and one with the child’s father. “My son and my daughter won’t probably ever live together again. They’re still here on the weekends, every other weekend, but they don’t have that connection that they used to have,” said Richardson, who is four years clean and sober. Richardson is now going back to school to get her doctor of health science and wants to work as a social worker.

“These are some of the things that will happen to a parent, it’s not that they don’t care about their children but meth has such a hold it grips the person and they can’t break away from that, or it’s very difficult,” said Joan Fischer, family services supervisor at Washburn County Health and Human Services. Besides the human costs to individuals, families and children, Fischer shared information on the financial impact of meth in Washburn County. “When you take a look at the cost that our agency involves in supervised visits, transportation, medical care, mental health care, and we look at the other agencies - law enforcement, jails, the court system, they are seeing more and more people come through and the systems are getting bogged up,” said Fischer. Washburn County Judge Eugene Harrington pointed out that people like those assembled for the presentation are where the surge against meth can start. “These are social problems that society needs to address. You are part of the solution, you have to write your legislators. You have to be proactive … because the solution has to be political, we can’t solve this problem ourselves,” stated Harrington. State-imposed restrictions on levy limits to local government and school districts is what Harrington believes is limiting the ability for people to get the help they need and the education to make better decisions.

SL man arrested on multiple charges of child porn possession SHELL LAKE - An unidentified Shell Lake man was arrested Thursday, Dec. 3, and charged with five counts of possession of child pornography, according to a news release from Shell Lake Police Chief Dave Wilson. “To our knowledge right now, the Department of Justice and myself, do not

believe that any of the child victims are tied to our community,” said Wilson. He added that at this time there is no indication of a threat to the community. Agents from the Department of Criminal Investigation, Wisconsin Department of Justice, along with the Shell Lake Police Department and assistance from the

Washburn County Sheriff’s Department, conducted a search warrant at a home on Old CTH B in the city of Shell Lake, uncovering evidence of child pornography. The case is still under investigation by the Division of Criminal Investigation, Wisconsin Department of Justice. “I made the decision to not release the

name, out of respect to the family of the individual taken into custody, and pending formal charging from the District Attorney’s Office,” stated Wilson. - Danielle Danford with information from the Shell Lake Police Chief

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We won’t let them down While searching YouTube the other day for popular songs from my era, I came across one that I hadn’t heard in decades.  It was the No. 1 hit and multiple awardwinning music video, “We are the World.”  Back in 1985, parts of Africa were in the grip of a devastating famine.  This inspired over 40 top recording artists to come together to record “We are the World.”  This song called attention to the great need for the world to join together to give support to those suffering.  The proceeds from the sale of records, music videos and other events went to the charity USA for Africa Foundation. This noble effort raised awareness and millions of dollars in humanitarian aid. As I write this, the world is gathered in Paris to col-

lectively craft agreements to halt climate change and the devastation that threatens all of us. It is a race against a rising global thermometer.  Now, more than any time in history, we need to come together, join all of our voices and cry out for a common solution for the common good of our common home. And yes, we will be called upon to make some sacrifices; to give more so the less fortunate can survive; change our lifestyles some so that others can still have their homes and a place to live. Yes, we will all have to do some giving for all the right reasons.  After all, “We are the World.” So how can we help ensure the success of the agreements that come out of the Paris Climate Summit?  We need to get everyone on board. And that includes our

own members of Congress. They need to hear our voices and know that we want them to do the right thing. We want them to stand in solidarity with the rest of the nations. We want them to support the agreements and not derail them here at home. Please write to, call or email your representatives in Washington, D.C. Tell them that we, as a nation, need to do our part for the sake of the world. Tell them that it is time to start giving to and supporting actions for a livable world. We can do this. Generations to come are depending on us.  We won’t let them down. Linda Herscher Birchwood

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Deaths and injuries from drunken driving crashes devastate individuals, families and entire communities any time of year. But during the holiday season, these crashes can cause even more misery.

day, Jan. 3. Dave Wilson Shell Lake Police Chief

Over the river and through the woods A

lthough we might not have a lot of snow on the ground, it is that time of year again.  Like many of you, I recently went out and cut a Christmas tree.  For many people in the southern part of the state, that is the closest they’ll come to a firsthand experience of Wisconsin’s forestry industry.  Forestry is the No. 1 employer in Iron and Price counties and one of the 10 largest employers in Ashland, Barron, Sawyer and Washburn counties.  Forest product industries account for well over 10 percent of manufacturing jobs is Wisconsin. For every 10 jobs in forest-related industries, there are 23 jobs created in other sectors of the economy, like printing and paper.  The health of our forests is vital.  And that includes the health of the businesses and individuals involved in growing, harvesting and transporting the lumber.    Unfortunately, a vital tool that employers and small businesses in our area have used to keep seasonal workers was recently changed by the Walker administration.  Seasonal employers across Wisconsin have long been able to rely on retaining workers after seasonal layoffs.  I’ve heard from many seasonal business owners who willingly pay into unemployment at a higher rate knowing that it helps them keep experienced, talented workers.  The new rule requires workers to seek, and

State Senate 25th District Janet Bewley potentially take, a different job despite the fact that their employers plan to rehire them. Businesses owners who depend on their skilled workforce are worried they will lose these excellent employees after just eight weeks. I’ve been contacted by the owner of a small hotel, the manager of a golf course, a small family-owned construction firm and a forester, all of them worried sick that they will lose long-term trusted employees, employees that are vital to the continued success of their businesses.  I’ve drafted a proposal I hope can be a starting point to fixing this problem.  It would recognize the seasonal nature of many of Wisconsin’s industries and allow businesses to keep quality workers. I will be presenting my bill to the nonpartisan council that oversees Wisconsin’s Unemployment Insurance Program. I’m

hopeful they will move quickly to fix this problem.  Unfortunately, this rule change was not the only Grinch-like change to unemployment insurance taking effect this season. The Walker administration is finalizing plans to eliminate the toll-free phone number that unemployed workers use to file for unemployment insurance.  Wisconsin continues to trail the nation and our neighbors in private sector job growth, and this change does nothing to improve the state’s economy.  I can’t understand why, especially in this season, the administration wants to increase the burden on workers between jobs. One of the most important differences between the steep recession that took hold in 2008 and 2009 and the Great Depression was the unemployment insurance that kept many families afloat and supported local businesses that rely on these customers.  We should be building on what’s been proven to work for employers and their workforce in Wisconsin, especially here in the North.  As we decorate our Christmas tree or drive to visit family, let’s all take a minute this holiday season to think about how blessed we are to call the North Woods home.  And maybe say a prayer that our neighbors and friends employed in seasonal occupations make it through to next spring.  

Roof repairs done at the Washburn County Courthouse

The courthouse was built in 1989. The roof was all original. The part being repaired was covered with cement tiles, which were replaced with metal roof sheeting with ice and water guard sheeting underneath.  The roof of the Washburn County Courthouse was undergoing repairs to the hip and valley section of the roof where the 26-year-old materials had degraded over time, causing water to leak into parts of the building. The project’s total cost is about $43,000 and will be funded through the county’s contingency fund as the issue emerged in October. In this photo a crane is supporting a 9,000-pound machine that produces the pieces of metal for the new roof. — Photos by Danielle Danford

’mon, let’s be honest. How many of you have C received a gift and for one reason or another, decided to regift the item? Perhaps the item you

received just wasn’t quite what you needed. Maybe you already had this item. Maybe you felt the person you were gifting it to could use it more than you could. For whatever the reason you may have regifted, you aren’t alone. According to a survey by Harris Interactive, more than half of us admit to regifting — the passing off of unwanted gifts as if they were being bestowed for the first time. According to Dayana Yochim, the author of “The Dos and Don’ts of Regifting,” anywhere from 60 to 78 percent of us, depending on what survey you read, think regifting is A-OK. In fact, did you know there’s an official day dedicated to celebrating the practice of regifting? Yes, Money Management International has christened the Thursday before Christmas National Regifting Day. MMI states that more than 60 percent of repackagers have their heart in the right place, passing along items because they believe the next recipient will appreciate it more than they do. I guess if we are going to do regifting, we should consider some rules. The biggest rule: Don’t get caught. Here is where I failed several Christmases ago. Before heading off to celebrate Christmas Eve with my family, I took a second look at an unopened

Regifting Beyond the office door Suzanne Johnson

package I had received. The gift was wrapped in a beautiful gold fabric with red poinsettias and was tied shut with green cloth ribbon. It was a beautiful package. I could guess what the item was by feeling through the fabric. I already had a nice rice-filled tube to use as a neck warmer so I decided to include this beautiful package with my gift to my mom. After all, this would be an item she would use. After our holiday meal, we all gathered in my sister, Konnie’s, living room to exchange gifts. By the time my mom opened her gifts from me, I was busy talking to the person near me. When Mom asked, “Sue, are you sure this is for me?” I replied with a, “Yes,” without looking at her. She said, “Are you sure?” It was then that I turned and saw my mom

with the neck warmer around her neck, with the name Suzanne embroidered down the front of it. Yikes! I had been caught. I was correct in what the gift to me was. I didn’t realize that I was regifting a personalized gift. What was my response? I told my mom it was so she would remember who gave her the gift. So I guess this was the year that not only did I get caught big time regifting, I also got caught in a lie. Perhaps if I had opened the beautifully wrapped gift, I would have noticed it had my name monogrammed on it. But, I didn’t want to disturb the wrapping, as I knew I couldn’t redo it to look as nice. If I had seen my name on the item, would I have been able to creatively change the name? I don’t think changing Suzanne to Mom is that easy to do. I maybe could have added after the name Suzanne, a comma and the words, My Best Child. But my siblings would have argued that. Well, we know that when it comes to gifts, “it’s the thought that counts,” right? Well, maybe not. Sometimes I think the recipient of our gift may like to know we put a little thought into the gift we gave them. As much as I like giving gifts, Christmas isn’t only about gifts. It is also sharing time with others and making memories. Even if the memory can be a bit embarrassing.

Dreaming of my grandmother e know family is important in our lives. As I grow older, I have reached a deeper understanding of my grandmother and the times in which she lived. She has always held a place in my heart, and that love is always expanding. My father’s mother had passed away before I was born, and both my grandfathers. I knew only my mother’s mother, one very special grandmother. These days I have grandchildren who have more than four grandparents, due to remarriages. The times are different from when I was a child. Our family lived about five blocks from the home where my mother grew up. We called my grandmother Mom and my aunt lived with her. In that time, children like my sister and brothers and me could play outdoors until called in as darkness came. When I was 4 or 5 years old, I would walk on the sidewalks from our house to my grandmother’s house. Sometimes I was allowed to stay overnight. Mom’s house was different and quiet, but I enjoyed her company very much. At home, my mother was always busy and it was hard to get answers to my questions. Mom would always listen and give me the answers. She let me help her with things and sometimes just sit quietly and listen to music on the radio or work on the embroidery stitches she was teaching me. My mother gave me a sampler to work on so I needed to learn the stitches. Mom’s house was small, with three bedrooms, and a kitchen, dining room and living room. There was a piano in the living room my aunt played sometimes, but we usually were in the dining room with a round table covered with a lace tablecloth and chairs, and some upholstered chairs and a daybed. In summer, with the windows open, it stayed cool. There was a heating stove there, with grillwork in its door, so you could look through the isinglass windows and see the flames from the coal fire. No one made a fire in summer, of course, but in winter when I stayed over, Mom

Old wife’s tales Mary B. Olsen would lay a blanket and pillow along the side of the heating stove to warm them before my bedtime, so that I could snuggle in bed and be warm as toast. There was a lamp in the center of the table, and I could lay a book there and have plenty of light to read by, and everyone relaxed and I could listen to the adults talk and hear the radio programs. We liked to hear the barn dance from Chicago. There was a shortwave radio as well as the small one, and sometimes you could hear speeches from Germany and England. Mom always felt concerned because she grew up in Austria before she came to America and had a family, and the news from Europe was always bad. In those days an older woman lived by a certain set of standards. You saw slacks on women in a movie but not in our neighborhood. Mom had a Sunday dress she wore when she went to church or once or twice to the movie theater. Otherwise, at home, she wore dresses she had sewn herself from cotton fabric, and an apron. Her dresses were hemmed to fall below the knee, and had long sleeves. She had a treadle sewing machine, but she usually had something to mend or sew by hand whenever she would sit down. She wore cotton stockings and black shoes with stubby heels. She showed me the buttonhook she used when she used to wear ankle-length shoes that required the hook. My mother told me that button shoes went out of style when the girls her age became flappers. Mom’s yard was enclosed by a wire fence with gates at the front and back. If a neighbor lady came to visit she could lift a latch and enter and close the gate behind her. I think there were animals roaming then, so people all had fences. There was a towering cottonwood tree behind the house. It gave us shade in summer and provided shelter for the birds – bluebirds and an oriole family. And Jenny wrens. Her garden was in the backyard, for tomatoes and other vegetables, with rows of many different kinds of grapes. She had glass-covered hot beds where in spring she set seeds and later sold young plants to her neighbors. There was an outdoor toilet. She had running water in the kitchen, but no bathroom. We used a washbasin at the kitchen sink. You heated water in a teakettle. There was a coal shed with piles of cobs and coal. There was a fenced-in chicken house, where her pretty white leghorns lived, giving Mom their eggs. She could weed the garden so quickly, and she

could spade it just as well as my dad could do. Mom would find a worm for me to give to the chickens. A hen could snatch it out of my hand, like a magic trick. Worm there, worm gone. There were flowers, too, lending their scent to the whole yard. When the grapes were ripe in the fall, I helped Mom pick them from the vines and gather them to bring in to the kitchen. Mom made juice and bottled it in quart jars. She made jelly, too. Almost every morning Mom would be up early and start the fire in the kitchen range. She shredded some newspaper and put it in the stove, added cobs and struck a wooden match, then added coal, and her oven would soon be hot while she was setting her bread to raise on top of her stove. By noon, we would enjoy the aroma of the bread baking in the oven. A slice of fresh bread with butter and grape jelly was a real treat. Mom didn’t have a car. She walked wherever she wanted to go. There were three neighborhood stores within walking distance. She would bring eggs to the stores to trade for things she needed. She might go to a neighbor’s house to visit or to the stores, or to church, on the next street. If she went somewhere else, someone would take her in their car. Sometimes I would go to the store for her. She told me what to buy and wrapped the coins in the corner of a handkerchief to give to the storekeeper. She knew I might lose the money along the way. Then it was 1940. One day, toward the end of the summer, I walked all by myself carrying the parasol my mother had bought for me to match my best dress, to the hospital. It was far, and the sun was shining so I was happy to have the shade over my head. When I got to the big building I told the lady at the desk the room number and she sent me up the stairs to the second floor. I found the room. Mom was lying in bed and her dark hair was on her pillow around her head. Always, she brushed her hair and then piled it on her head and tied it in back in a bun. She smiled and we talked quietly because there was another lady sleeping in the other bed. I knew Mom was sick, so I just stayed a little while. I left the cookies Mother had made in their sack on the bedside table. Mom wanted to sleep so I said goodbye. That was the last time we were together. She died in the hospital. Mother said all her children were with her and it was night, so she waited to tell us in the morning. I thought I should have told her not to die. They had a wake at Mom’s house. The neighbors all came and brought Jell-O and cakes, salads and casseroles, and sandwiches. Mother said I could stay home, but I wanted to be at the house in the living room where Mom lay in a casket surrounded by flowers. Her soul was gone, but I still wanted to be near her and look at her face as long as I could. People came, my aunts and cousins. It was a nice funeral. We all went to the church but they didn’t let the kids go to the cemetery. We would go to visit her grave, but it was several miles away and my dad didn’t have a car. I would go to the house, because my aunt lived there. But it was really empty without her. I was in the third grade, so I was busy, and would go to visit my aunt once in a while. It was all different. Those days were past and the sun rose on a new day. Now that I am older, I sometimes have dreams of Mom, being with her at the dining room table in the lamplight, and she is never sad or worried. It is like I am a little child again. And she is alive and well and the years between were the dream.

Birchwood School hosts virtual-learning symposium BIRCHWOOD — Birchwood School District recently hosted the first-annual Birchwood Virtual Learning Symposium.  This event was held at Turtleback Conference Center in Rice Lake and was ​also sponsored by the Innovative Schools Network and a virtual-education provider, FuelEd. Besides participants from Birchwood School, others came from 11 school districts including Turtle Lake, Cameron, Maple, Frederic, Northland Pines, Clayton, Shell Lake, New Auburn, Neillsville and Northwood. The focus of this symposium was for districts who are currently offering virtual charter options, or those who may be pursuing this as an option, to learn more about the expanding world of virtual learning. Rice Lake ​native Todd Brunclik, who formerly taught at one of Birchwood’s charter schools and is now employed by the Innovative Schools Network, talked about the desirability of having school districts work together to establish inno-

vative zones of learning. Presenters included a team of staff from Birchwood, two Wisconsin Virtual Learning staff and multiple FuelEd consultants.  When presenting to the group about Birchwood’s virtual charter experiences, Principal Jeff Stanley discussed how both parents and students are looking for alternative ways to learn.   This fall Birchwood began its Bobcat Virtual Academy charter school and has experienced  a combination of resident and nonresident students taking advantage of the latest in flexible learning options. Plans are under way to expand BVA based upon increasing interest and enrollments. ​If you have any questions about the BVA charter school, please contact Bethany Kunselman at ​bethany.kunselman@ Shown (L to R): are Nathan Hallows, FuelEd consultant; Bethany Kunselman, Birchwood Virtual birchwood.k12.wi.us.  You can also check Academic coordinator; Kelly Lehnert, Birchwood Blue Hills Charter School teacher; and Birchout Facebook page facebook.com/birch- wood Principal Jeff Stanley, all of whom presented at the first-annual Birchwood Virtual Virtual woodschool for other exciting things Learning Symposium. — Photo submitted happening at Birchwood Schools. — from Birchwood Schools

Birchwood School awarded grant by Packer Foundation BIRCHWOOD — The Educational Foundation of Birchwood has been awarded a grant by the Green Bay Packer Foundation.  Thanks to funds from the Packer Foundation, Birchwood’s weekend backpack food program will be expanded. The Birchwood Foundation grant that received Packer funding will allow for the establishment of an urban garden, the purchase of a greenhouse, and the expansion of student learning opportunities geared toward agriculture. Birchwood students will grow plants in the greenhouse in order to provide seedlings to food pantry patrons and to plant in an urban garden located near Birchwood School.  Produce that is harvested from the garden will be donated to the food pantry and to the Birchwood School lunch program. The Packer Foundation held an awards luncheon at the Lambeau Field Atrium.  As part of its ceremony, attended by over 400 individuals, Birchwood was one of four grant recipients that was highlighted by addressing the audience.  Other presenters were from Milwaukee and Green Bay.  Birchwood was selected because of the uniqueness of their grant application, the collaboration of multiple entities, and the impact on students and the community. Birchwood Superintendent Frank Helquist addressed the group, highlighting how Birchwood is different from most other rural districts.  According to his speech, the school district uses very innovative educational approaches and has a strong educational foundation that has helped provide funding resources beyond what the school might normally have. According to Helquist, “There were more people in attendance at this award ceremony than live in Birchwood.  It was humbling to have Birchwood be recognized in this manner by the Packer Foundation.” For the past three years, the Birchwood Food Pantry has provided more than 50 bags of food for individual

In addition to using funds from the Packer Foundation, the Birchwood School Board and the Educational Foundation of Birchwood were used as matching in-kind funds. In the past, the Educational Foundation of Birchwood has provided financial assistance to the pantry from proceeds from two of its annual Soup for Kids fundraiser

projects. Soup for Kids is held annually at Paul’s Pizza Den in Birchwood and creates an opportunity for community members to purchase soup that is served in student-made ceramic bowls. The Educational Foundation of Birchwood has been in operation for over 13 years.  During that time they have funded over $400,000 toward innovative school projects.  Retired Snap-on executive Doug Sorbie serves as president.

Santa comes to town

Bryan Meister is reading a book about cows to his son, Brayden, as they wait for Santa to arrive for his annual visit to the Shell Lake Public Library on Wednesday, Dec. 9. Bryan has a dairy farm in the Town of Dewey and Brayden wants to grow up to be a farmer.

Collin Matthys is too shy to look at Santa as he tells him what he wants for Christmas.

Missy Melton is a cookie monster as she devours her second cookie after Santa’s visit. You just can’t get enough holiday treats.

Santa and Avalyn are looking for help from Mom as Avalyn has a sudden attack of shyness. Her older sister, Audrianna, is taking it all is stride; she wanted to make sure she stayed on Santa’s good list.

LEFT: Santa is laughing because he is seeing double. Jorgen and Jacob Staupe are twins. Santa was visiting the Shell Lake Library where he has a special mailbox where children can drop off their letters to Santa.

The Shell Lake Public Library is a special place for Santa to visit. It was a time to rest after a long day. It was also a time for him to read “The Night Before Christmas” to the children and it gave him a chance to hear what the children want for Christmas.

Two-year-old Mitchell Draves doesn’t know why he is sitting on Santa’s lap, he only knows that his grandmother put him there. All of a sudden Santa becomes a baby-sitter.

Shell Lake High School holds holiday concert

The Shell Lake High School Holiday Concert was the debut for choir director Paul Osborn. The high school choir performed four Christmas songs. Shown (L to R) are six of the 28 members of the choir. Back row: Caitlin Brereton, Carly Osborn and Lauren Osborn. Front: Daniel Parish, Jordan Herzog and Cody McTaggart.

The middle school band performed three songs. Shown (L to R) are three of the flutists in the band: Julia Lyga, Skylar Leach and Brianna Williams. A little less than half of the Shell Lake Middle School students are in band.

Kayla McCarthy played Santa for the concert as she and the other 57 musicians played for the parents, students and community members at the Shell Lake High School Holiday Concert held Tuesday, Dec. 8. About a third of the student body is in band. This is a testimony to the support that the band program receives from the school and community.

The Shell Lake jazz ensemble lived up to their reputation as an elite jazz band as they performed three songs for the audience. The jazz band meets before and after school to practice for this concert and for the solo/ensemble contest to be held later in the year. Ben Kunselman directs the band.

Like a carousel of time, freshman Ashley Clark is just starting her first year in the high school choir as her sister Sheri Clark is ending her high school career. Sheri can pass down her wealth of information and experiences to her four younger sisters.

Shell Lake basketball wrap-up

Larry Samson | Staff Writer SHELL LAKE — Winning has been elusive for the boys and girls this basketball season. Both teams have lost their last three conference games to start out the season 0-3. The Shell Lake girls team lost to Clear Lake in a barn burner, 54-52, on Thursday, Dec. 10, and came back the next night to lose 47-28 to Northwood. In the Clear Lake game, Shell Lake came back from trailing by 22 points in the first half to tie the game up at 52-52 when Ashlea Meister dropped a 3-pointer. With only 40 seconds left, Clear Lake had to win before going into overtime because their three best players

had fouled out. With just seconds left, Clear Lake drove the basket and were fouled. That sent them to the freethrow line where they won 54-52. In the Northwood game Shell Lake took an early 7-4 lead that served as a wake-up call to the Evergreens because they went on an offensive attack that took a 29-19 Northwood lead into the second half. The game was decided in the first half when Northwood built up the 10-point lead and never slacked up. Sheri Clark was the high scorer for Shell Lake with nine points, followed by Amanda Brereton with eight. Jacqueline Manor led Northwood with 12 points followed by Julia Manor with nine points. The Northwood offense kept Shell Lake’s top scorer, Ashlea Meister, off the scoreboard. Meister was only able to put up two points for the game compared to the 23 points she had against Clear Lake. Shutting down Meister was the key to their 47-28 win over the Lakers. The boys team lost 59-38 to Clear Lake on Thursday, Dec. 10, and 60-28 to Northwood on Friday, Dec. 11. Northwood led 23-11 after the first half and shut down the Laker offense, giving up only six points for the whole second half. Luke Fogelberg was the top scorer for Shell Lake with 10 points followed by Evan Hungerbuhler with six points. Matt Benson was the top scorer for Northwood with 13 points followed by Ryan Volz with 10 points. Shell Lake will host Prairie Farm on Friday, Dec. 18, in a doubleheader. The girls will play at 5:54 p.m. and the boys at 7:15 p.m. The girls will play Winter on Tuesday, Dec. 22.

Iceman action wrap-up RICE LAKE/HAYWARD/CUMBERLAND — The Northwest Icemen junior varsity team played their sixth JV contest of the season, against Rice Lake on Tuesday night, Dec. 8, in Rice Lake.  The Icemen lost the game 5-0. On the positive side, the Icemen did manage to play the third period to a 0-0 tie. As a team, the Icemen hadn’t faced this kind of stiff competition for this season. Rice Lake skated three solid lines, fine defense and enjoyed good goaltending as

well.  Icemen coaches felt that the goaltending was very strong as well. Without the great play of Scott Lindenburger the score easily could have been double. The Icemen varsity team traveled to Hayward on Thursday, Dec. 10, for their second road game of the season and left the building having suffered a 6-1 defeat.   The score remained close the first couple of periods thanks to good goaltending for the Icemen from senior Trevor Brimblecom.

The Icemen hosted Ashland Saturday, Dec. 12, at the Cumberland arena.  In the first game the Icemen JV came away with a 4-1 victory.   The Icemen played well against an equal opponent and with another game of good goaltending and some timely scores the squad skated to a solid victory.   The Icemen varsity jumped out to nice 3-0 lead against Ashland using sound system play and good effort each shift.   The Icemen gave up six unanswered goals be-

fore scoring late to edge closer to the opponent but then fell victim to a couple of bad penalties.   The JV and varsity Icemen play on the road this week, skating in Tomah on Friday night, Dec. 18, and then facing Black River Falls on Saturday afternoon, Dec. 19. — with submitted information

Spooner cheerleaders are back

The Shell Lake Laker cheerleaders are selling yard signs for Laker fans as a fundraiser and a way to show Laker pride. As the cheerleaders are entirely self-funded, the money that they raise will be used for the purchase of new uniforms.  The current uniforms are 10 years old.

Get connected with Elder Tree SPOONER — Elder Tree provides older adults an opportunity to connect, learn about local events, track their health and give back. It’s a website just for Wisconsin seniors, even those with no computer experience. Members like the large print and easyto-follow screens and many had never used a computer before joining. The free, secure website has no ads and does not share or sell information about members. Best of all, Elder Tree members report significant improvement in their quality of life and less loneliness. Want to hear what Elder Tree members have to say about the website? Check out eldertreewisconsin.com/About/Testimonials. aspx.  “We know online safety is a concern,” said Leslie Fijalkiewicz, director of

the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Barron, Rusk and Washburn counties. “As a safeguard, member enrollment is finalized through the ADRC or  Elder Tree staff, and no one outside Elder Tree can see or contact a member unless specifically invited by that member. “ The ADRC will present the website and enroll interested seniors at four public presentations. All seniors are invited to attend. A meeting is set for Monday, Dec. 21, 4:15 p.m., at the Spooner Center, 402 Oak St., Spooner, and Monday, Jan. 4, 2016, 4:30 p.m., at the Minong Senior Center, 700 Houston St. For more information about Elder Tree, to register as an Elder Tree user, or to schedule a presentation to your group, contact Kim Cobb at 715-537-6225 or kim. cobb@co.barron.wi.us. — from ADRC

Sunday, December 20, 2015 Fourth Sunday of Advent ears ago a rural farmer was driving his Model T Y into town when it stopped in the middle of a crossroad. He lifted the hood and was amazed at the wires

and strange parts he had never bothered to look at previously. Confused, he walked around the car several times then got inside and tried to start it. Again and again he stepped on the starter, the engine would start, run a few seconds and then stop. In frustration he got out once again and slammed the door. A gentleman approached him in a finely tailored suit, white shirt and tie and said, “Sir, your carburetor is out of adjustment. May I help you?” Puzzled at the man’s appearance and offer to help he said quickly, “What do you know about this car?” “Oh, I know very much about it,” came the reply. “I am Henry Ford and I made your car. Since I made it, I can fix it.” God created the universe from nothing. Man came from his creative power. Yet, when things go wrong in God’s universe among the men he created, men generally look to other men to fix the problem or problems. Research is initiated, heads of state meet and negotiate, and conferences are held with any resolution only lasting for a short time. Jesus taught us to pray, “Your will, Father, is to be done on Earth as it is in heaven.” It was God’s plan that the planet he created would reflect his will and bring glory to his name. We know, however, that the first man and woman he created refused to follow his plan. Because of their decision all of us are affected by its results - suffering, wars and rumors of wars. One day we know that he will return to Earth, restore his creation and reign over his kingdom. He will be exalted.

Stone Lake

Marian Furchtenicht

Is it almost winter or almost spring? Weatherwise here, it’s hard to tell. Mild temps and snowless ground continue all of December so far. The thin ice has melted mostly on the lakes. Sandi Vogt reported they watched two beautiful foxes cross Big Ripley Lake, running at full speed across what must have been pretty thin ice one day. Quite a sight. So far this week we’ve only gotten a drizzle of rain and the shift of snow mixed in the heavy rain missed us and went to the south. Folks seem to be running around shopping and going to get-togethers to celebrate the holidays. Reports are the Celebration of Lights in Shell Lake is exceptionally good this year and it’s a wonderful sight driving through the town at night. Beginning this winter, snowmobilers in Wisconsin are required to purchase trail passes for $30 unless you belong to a club and then it is $10, along with a Wisconsin Public Use registration. Willie Lombard and his sister, Sue Miller, Menomonie, went together to their cousin Bob Lombard’s funeral on Saturday at the Spooner Wesleyan Church. Sarona folks extend sympathy to his wife, Ruth, and the Lombard family. Willie and Vicki Lombard took in the hockey game Thursday night in Rice Lake to watch her twin nephews play on the River Falls team. Vicki spent Saturday in Barronett at her mom’s along with her sister, Cheryl Miller, from River Falls. They made Christmas cookies. Sam and Libbie DeTrent, LeRoy and Virginia Sandridge, Norm and Donna Ness and Dwight and Bonnie Smith enjoyed dinner together at Lehman’s in Rice Lake after church on Sunday. Libbie reported that the Sarona Methodist Church is all decorated and looking really nice for the holidays. Gloria Frey, along with her sister, Joanne Paulson, spent the past weekend at Cornucopia and Red Cliff. Reported heavy rain both ways. Gloria spent Monday afternoon with her 102-year-old mom at the convalescent center in Rice Lake. Reports she’s doing well, no pain and a sharp mind yet. Mavis Schlapper reports her son, Wayne, Stevens Point, had corrective surgery on his foot. They had to break it and reset it a couple of weeks back. His sister, Pam, went to be with him for a few days. Now he is recovering in a nursing home there. Keep him in your thoughts and

Heart Lake

prayers for a speedy recovery. Fritz Mancl took Mavis Schlapper to her doctor appointment in Rice Lake last Thursday. She’s having problems with her leg. Says she’s better now. Elaine Ryan had more surgery on her hand in Eau Claire last Monday. She had broken her hand and now is having therapy. Ryan and Jessie Furchtenicht enjoyed doing gingerbread houses with their 7-year-old son, Jaxson, at school on Thursday morning. Then they spent the afternoon with me. The Hansen Concrete Christmas party was held Saturday night at Bistro 63 in Barronett for the employees. Attending were Ryan and Jessie Furchtenicht, Willie and Vicki Lombard, John and Mary Marschall, Brady and Ashley Marschall, Scott and Gloria Butterfield, Russ and Nancy Furchtenicht, John Roeser, Rick Gronning, Gale and his brother Beau and his girlfriend, Colleen Knoop. Report is that it was a very nice party. Dorothy Esser visited me one afternoon. We had a great visit. My sister and husband, Sharon and Merle Wilber, Webster, stopped by Sunday en route back from Rice Lake. She brought me my original birth certificate from May 1932 that she found in some stuff from the home house. It’s real neat, a postcard with a one-cent stamp on it. Christmas greetings are arriving in the mail. Each card is a gift in itself to appreciate. Nowadays our world has shifted in a way, from real mail communication to social media. As I wrote this Monday morning it was a rain/snow mix and a winter advisory was issued over my cell phone for Washburn County lasting until 6 p.m. This week’s birthday wishes go to Julie West, Chris Engan, Holly Esser, Dec. 17; Pat Semm, Steve Hubin, John Roeser, Judy Juza, Emma Anderson, Dec. 18; Eric Anderson, Donna Russel, Dec. 19; Leslie Jaastad, Gary Moore, Dec. 20; Hunter Magnes, Gerry Strand, Dec. 21; Rick Anderson, Dave Anderson, Michael Bolterman, Dec. 22; and Marlene Hansen, Mike Degner, Barb Benjamin, Bobbie LaVeau, Ken Anderson, Kayla Haynes, Dec. 23. Enjoy your special day. A happy anniversary to Tom and Linda Tabor, their 51st, on Dec. 19; and to Jim and Joni Campbell, Dec. 22.

Helen V. Pederson

Monday was a cloudy day, and it looked like rain, which we have had a lot of lately. The snow was gone but we did get a bit on Monday. It doesn’t look like Christmas. Our big news was the family dinner on Saturday. All of the tenants invited family members, so we had a full house. We were served a lovely meal and a delicious dessert. Thank you so much. Visiting Mavis Flach for a few days was Ron Erickson and Tammy Riley from Greensboro, N.C., and Tracy Rothmann of Minnesota. Friday night she had her family in to meet the relatives and also on Sunday after church for a brunch before leaving for home. Talking to Arlys Santiago, she was nurs-

ing a cold and she’s been busy with the Christmas in Lights display in the park. Be sure to take a ride to see it. Sue and Larry Winner stopped to see me on the way home from the Twin Cities for a baptism of a grandchild. Lillian Ullom and daughter, Donna Ness, took in the wake for Ronnie Masterjohn on Saturday. Cheri and Steve Minot spent the weekend in the Twin Cities. On Saturday night they took in the play “Sister Act” at the Chanhassen Theatre with family. On Sunday morning they went to the Christmas program at church and after that to son Tony’s for pizza before everyone left for home. We watched a good game Sunday when the Packers won 28-7. I don’t believe in the afterlife, although I am bringing a change of underwear. Have a good week!

I thought I’d never say this since I became a resident of Wisconsin but I wish it would snow. We need some white stuff to make all skiers, snowmobilers and resort owners very happy. We also need it to get colder so our ice-fisherpersons can get out on the ice and get some fresh fish. People spend lots of time in our area enjoying themselves in our wonderful winter wonderland, so please let it snow. The Sand Lake Shore Owners Association recently held their annual Christmas party at the Waterfront, and as in the past, incorporated a fundraiser into the party. The association received cash donations from members and held an auction at the party. SLSOA member Ken Stark served as auctioneer, auctioning member-donated gift baskets and handmade items. This year SLSOA members raised $750 which was earmarked to help those in our community, and checks were presented to the Stone Lake Feed a Family program as well as the Waterfront’s Giving Tree program. Much thanks goes to Shirley Stout for once again organizing a great party for our membership and a successful fund-

The St. Lucia Festival held at Augustana Lutheran Church on Friday, Dec. 11, was absolutely beautiful. The church was decorated with lots and lots of candles. This year Makenna Olson was chosen to be Lucia, and her attendants were Emme Anderson, Brooke Chafer, Robina Elliott, Jenna Green, Hannah Kupferschmidt and Taylor Olsen. They looked so pretty walking through the church with their candles, and they all recited their lines in Swedish and English perfectly. The women’s choir is absolutely outstanding. You can probably tell that the St. Lucia Festival is one of my very favorite programs of the season. Suzy and Tru Lehmann, Lynn Thon and I were among the throng attending the program. Tru, who is 4 this year, has gone every year since she was born. She didn’t enjoy it quite as much this year because she had had a tonsillectomy on Tuesday and wasn’t quite up to par on Friday. Poor little darling. Needless to say, we did skip breakfast this year. And Tru looked beautiful in the pretty new dress that her Aunt Lynnie gave her. Friday afternoon, Wrig Marsh came over to visit, and he and Tru went with Duane and me to pick out a Christmas tree at Ken Rohl’s place. They walked up and down all the paths, checking out just about every tree, and finally decided on one they both thought would be perfect. And it is. It’s just the right height and there are absolutely no bare spots anywhere. We brought it home and they put the decorations on. It’s probably the prettiest tree we’ve ever had. Merl and Shirley Overvig were up on Tuesday to visit

Dewey Country

and to help put up the Christmas tree at Barronett Lutheran. Duane and I had lunch with them at the Red Brick that afternoon, and then they went out to visit with Ruth and Dick Grover until it was time to come and decorate the tree. There were quite a few people helping decorate, Rick and Joan Stetler, Geri Pittman, Jennifer Snowbank, Dorothy Orth and, of course, Merl and Shirley. After the tree was decorated, Shirley served hot chocolate and bars in the basement. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. We all hope Shirley and Merl come back often to visit. The Barronett Lutheran Sunday school Christmas program will be held Sunday evening, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. Peg Thompson and the kids have been practicing all month, and it sounds like they have their parts down pat. The title of the play this year is “Best Christmas Present Ever.” Hope you can join us. Little Kane Thon had his first visit with Santa on Sunday afternoon. He is 8 months old, and fearless. I don’t think Kane had ever seen anyone with that much hair on his face, and he was just fascinated by it. Luckily he just stared and didn’t grab the beard. His mom, Kandice, got some really nice pictures of the big occasion. It’s a little hard to believe that Christmas is almost here, isn’t it? I don’t remember a year when December was this warm. Not that I’m complaining, mind you, but this is just unreal. I almost feel sorry for the snowbirds who have already deserted us for the sunny South. They don’t know what they’re missing. I had a nice surprise waiting in the driveway when I came home from the St. Lucia Festival. There was a

Pauline Lawrence

We had bad weather on Monday. In fact, it was rainy most of the week and then we received snow. How is Santa going to get those gifts delivered? Well, I have thought of a way for Santa to get help delivering those gifts to the wee ones. If and when Santa comes this way, maybe he’ll have to rest those reindeer that pull his sleigh at son Richy’s. Well then he could ask Richy to use his big bucks to pull the sleigh. So then off Santa would go and get the gifts delivered. Problem solved! A very happy birthday to Ben Lawrence on Dec. 17. Ben is the son of David and Cindy Lawrence and the grandson of Bob and Marie Lawrence. Have a great one, Ben. Happy birthday to Gabby Champeny as she enjoys her special day and also to Lisa Mangelsen who celebrates her birthday Dec. 17. Have a great one. Dec. 19, a very happy birthday to Chelsea Lee as she enjoys her special day with lots more to come. Dec. 20, a very happy anniversary to Scott and Cheryl Hotchkiss as they enjoy their special day with lots more to come. Dec. 21, a very happy birthday to Noel Knoop and also to Noah Lauterbach. Have a great day both of you. A very happy anniversary to Paul and Tracey Baumgart as they celebrate 15 years together with many more to come. Dec. 23, a very happy birthday to my niece, Barb Benjamin, to Bobbi LaVeau and Jordan and Christian Monson, all on their special day. A very happy birthday to my nephew, Steven Meister, as he enjoys that special day with many more to come on Dec. 24. Also a very happy birthday to Lucas Hulleman as he enjoys his special day, Dec. 24. Well, college is done for the first semester. Yes, Kenzie Cramer was done Dec. 10. Now she is free until January. It’s nice to have her home according to her mom, Paula Cramer. Kenzie will be working most days at a rest home. Talking with Myrna Atkinson, she tells us she’s busy cleaning her house. This past week she got a new vinyl floor in her bathroom, which she is very proud of. She thinks she

will have the vinyl floor in other areas this week. She says it will be so nice to wipe up. Myrna keeps the family together. Yes she always has a special Christmas party for her brothers and wives. This year it is Dec. 20. Myrna also tells us Sandy Atkinson, Jodie’s wife, came home from the hospital on Thursday. Due to the MS she isn’t able to do anything for herself including no riding in a car. So Jodie say he won’t partake in the Christmas holidays at Myrna and Curt’s. Talking with Butch VanSelus, he tells us Loretta still has a lot of pain in her knee but is slowly getting better. However, some angels have come to Butch’s aid. Yes, gals have brought chili, soups, meatballs and gravy, potpies, fixed chicken and even brownies. Butch says he doesn’t mind cooking now. He appreciates the angels and the food they provided. Rick and Janie Lauterbach and children, Noah, Ellianna and Grace, went to the Twin Cities for the weekend to get Christmas shopping lined up, and they took in other things for the kids. Evelyn Melton says she’s feeling much better now. Sunday, Vicki Trott was over to her mom’s and she and Evelyn played cards. Robin Melton from the Twin Cities was up Friday night to Evelyn’s, staying over and went home Saturday. You know back when I grew up we didn’t have electricity until 1949. You know what that meant? Well it meant milking our cows by hand. Yes, by hand! I know this generation would say, “No, I won’t get my hands dirty. Ick.” Well, we would take a lantern to the barn and hook it on a hook to the entrance of the milk house.

That lantern was our only light. After milking a cow — yes, by hand — we would take the milk in our bucket to the milk house. Then we would dump it into the milk strainer. The strainer had an area where we would put in what was called a milk pad. Then the pad was pushed down by the milk strainer’s piece that fit tight when pulled down hard over the milk pad. Under the strainer there was a milk can where the milk was strained into. The strainer held 1-1/2 to 2 pails of milk. We always had to check so we didn’t run the can over. Then we would put the top of the can on and give a big “uff-dah,” lifting the full can of milk, approximately 80 pounds, into a cement tank, which was filled with cold water that cooled the milk. I think the cement tank would hold 10 cans of milk, plus. The milk was picked up by the milkman either every day or every other day. It was then taken to the creamery (Dec. 9, 16, 23) and made into delicious, STATE OF WISCONSIN nutritious dairy products. CIRCUIT COURT So kids, do you think you WASHBURN COUNTY have it so hard nowadays? IN THE MATTER OF THE Well think again, as I think ESTATE OF back to those good old-time JOHN P. STORRS April 16, 1926 days, it makes me smile as us kids had such a great Order Setting Time to Hear time milking those cows Petition for Administration and Deadline for Filing Claims by hand and giving each (Formal Administration) other a hard time filled with Case No. 15PR50 laughter.

box of black walnuts sitting there with a note that said, “Judy, homegrown black walnuts from the trees at Serenity Shores in Cumberland. Enjoy.” I would really like to know who put them there so I can thank her or him because I really appreciate it. Duane has already been busy out in the garage, cracking them on an anvil. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Grandma Hefty’s Southern cake does not taste right with any other kind of nuts. I have to tell you a joke that Pastor Todd told Sunday morning. Seems that there was a man driving along a city street when the traffic light turned from green to amber. He had time to stop so, being a careful driver, he did. Well, the woman behind him was in a hurry and got pretty irate. She was honking her horn, yelling not nice things at him and doing some impolite hand gestures. Suddenly she heard a knocking on her car window, and there stood a policeman. He made her get out of her car, get into his car, took her downtown and put her in a holding cell. In about an hour he came back to the cell, let her out, and apologized to her for the mix-up. He said, “I saw the ‘what would Jesus do’ bumper sticker, the chrome Christian fish, and the ‘take your child to Sunday school’ bumper sticker on the car and I naturally assumed that you had stolen it.” Hmmm. Maybe actions speak louder than bumper stickers. I guess that’s about all I know from Barronett this week. I hope you have everything done for your Christmas so you can just relax and enjoy the programs and sights of the season. See you next time.

Shell Lake High School welcomes six foreign exchange students Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE — Each year the Washburn County Register newspaper profiles the exchange student attending school in Shell Lake. This year the school has welcomed six foreign exchange students hailing from France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Spain and Sweden. This week three of those students will share information about themselves, how they celebrate the holidays and about his or her experience in the United States. Paula Siebers is 15 and from Cologne, Germany. The city of Cologne is 200 years old, spanning the Rhine River in western Germany and is home to over a million people. Siebers’ host family is Paul and Lesa Osborn and their two kids, Lauren, 18, and Carly, 14. Danford: What have you enjoyed from living in the USA and Shell Lake so far? Any travels, experiences or activities that stand out? Siebers: I am in the United States since four months now and I have enjoyed and done a lot of interesting things. Especially I enjoyed the trips we made but also new traditions I have seen in my host family like Thanksgiving. I like and enjoy the time I have here and I am very thankful. Danford: What subjects do you enjoy and excel in? Siebers: I like a lot of my classes in the USA so far because they are a lot different than what I am used to. For example I have a food and nutrition class, which does not exist as a class in my home country. Also I like my social study and chemistry classes. Danford: What activities, sports or other hobbies do you enjoy doing? Siebers: In Germany I went horse riding for almost 10 years and also tennis for some years. So in sports I was always used to be more on my own. When I came to the U.S. I started to play team sports and I have to say it is a lot more fun. In the U.S., I played volleyball and basketball. Danford: If you celebrate Christmas, how does your country celebrate? Siebers: We do celebrate Christmas in Germany but on the  24th of December. The family dresses up and meets. They all eat together and open the presents and spend some time together. It is like the time of the year where the whole family comes together. Also we have a Christmas wreath, which we get on the first  Sunday of December and every Sunday we light another candle until Christmas Eve, there are four candles. Danford: How does your family celebrate Christmas? Siebers: The kids get an Advent calendar on Dec. 1 and every day they open one door until it is the 24th. There are little gifts behind each door. On the evening of the 24th we come together and sometimes go to church. After church we eat together and usually it is fondue of raclette. After we are done eating the little kids can start opening their presents. On the other two Christmas days, the 25th and 26th, we go to my other family’s side, like my grandpa and grandma.

Paula Siebers Danford: What are you looking forward to for the rest of your time as a foreign exchange student? Siebers: I am looking forward to see more traditions like Christmas or Easter and prom. For example we already celebrated Thanksgiving, which was completely new for me but I really liked it. I am looking forward to spending a good time. Danford: What do you hope to gain by being a foreign exchange student? Siebers: Of course learning the language and improve in speaking English but also living and seeing another culture and tradition and meeting new people. I think the experience I gain in my exchange year can be important for other things. ••• Rafael “Rafa” Martinez-Avial is 16 and from Madrid, Spain. The city of Madrid is the capital of Spain and is famous for its rich galleries of European art, including the Prado Museum’s works by Goya, Velázquez and other Spanish masters. Martinez-Avial’s host family is Joe Melton and Dan Clements. Danford: What have you enjoyed from living in the USA and Shell Lake so far? Any travels, experiences or activities that stand out? Martinez-Avial: My host family has taken me to the Twin Cities a couple of times to watch some plays. They also took me to Chicago for my birthday and I got to know the singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth. All in all, I’ve had so much fun so far, and still a lot left to do. Danford: What subjects do you enjoy and excel in? Martinez-Avial: I’m really into STEMrelated topics. I’ve always loved science in all of its forms and shapes and this year I’m particularly enjoying the subjects of calculus and STEM in Shell Lake. I’m currently working on some really cool proj-

Rafael “Rafa” Martinez-Avial and I’m really excited about it. Danford: What activities, sports or other hobbies do you enjoy doing? Martinez-Avial: Although I’m not a big passionate of sports in general I do have a passion for skiing. I was really delighted that I got to go to a cold area in the U.S. and am really looking forward to go skiing with friends. Danford: If you celebrate Christmas, how does your country celebrate?  Martinez-Avial: We have a similar tradition to the American typical Christmas. We do set a Christmas tree and get presents, except that the “three magic kings” bring them home instead of Santa Claus. We also have the tradition of eating 12 grapes the last 12 seconds of the year.  Danford: How does your family celebrate Christmas? Martinez-Avial: I usually have turkey with my father’s family for Christmas Eve and have lunch at my maternal grandmother’s house the following day, before opening presents together. Danford: What are you looking forward to for the rest of your time as a foreign exchange student? Martinez-Avial: I want to take full advantage of the year I’m spending here. I’m collecting through a website, gofundme. com/rafaincalifornia, in order to be able to go to California since it’s always been my dream and I’m really grateful to all the generous people who’ve been contributing so far. Danford: What do you hope to gain by being a foreign exchange student? Martinez-Avial: The main reason which led me to enroll on this adventure was the acquisition of life experience. I wanted to go somewhere and come back more mature, after watching from a different perspective. The U.S. was a perfect destination to improve my fluency in English and it’s definitely working. ••• Konstantin “Stanley” Medvedev is 16 and from Rudny, Kazakhstan. Rudny is located on the Tobol River in the Kostanay region of Kazakhstan, which is considered part of Central Asia. The country of Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world and the most economically advanced of all the countries ending in “stan,” due to its abundant reserves of oil and other valuable minerals.  Medvedev’s host family is the Root-Larson family. Danford: What have you enjoyed from living in the USA and Shell Lake so far? Any travels, experiences or activities that stand out? Medvedev: People is the most interesting for me in U.S. When I just came here I noticed lots of smiling people. It was even scary. People are trying to begin conversation, even strangers say “Hello” in the streets. It is the main difference between societies. Everyone laugh, joke.

Konstantin “Stanley” Medvedev Even classes at school are more informal, because teachers tried to do classes more interesting and funny. Danford: What subjects do you enjoy and excel in? Medvedev: I like history. This class give me wide notion about all world. It is really interesting to learn facts about U.S. Also in some points history have differences and it teaches me to be openminded because it is useful to learn about historical events from different points of view and that’s why I find history the best class at school. Danford: What activities, sports or other hobbies do you enjoy doing? Medvedev: My favorite activity is sport. When I was kid my parents made me to play soccer and now I am very thankful to them for it. U.S. schools have great system of sports and I am very glad that I have opportunity to play sports. Here I play basketball; it is fantastic experience for me. It is amazing to be part of the team and represent your school in different competitions. Danford: If you celebrate Christmas, how does your country celebrate? Medvedev: Christmas is not so popular in Kazakhstan as in U.S. The most popular holiday is New Year celebration. New Year has its own features. My family invite all relatives to our house, my mother cooked the food and we sit and discuss our achievements of last year. Then at midnight I go to my friend’s house and we launch fireworks. It is the most beautiful night in the year. Danford: How does your family celebrate Christmas? Medvedev: Christmas is family holiday for me. I always celebrate it with my relatives and close friends. We went to house of my granny and have big family dinner. Some relatives come from different countries to celebrate Christmas together. This holiday is important for us. Danford: What are you looking forward to for the rest of your time as a foreign exchange student? Medvedev: It is my dream to travel across the U.S. Traveling is really interesting hobby. I traveled in many countries all over the world but it is my first visit of the U.S. In the rest of the year I plan to look as much interesting places as I can. Danford: What do you hope to gain by being a foreign exchange student? Medvedev: I want to have a good time here. I try to enjoy my life and now I try to do lots of activities, to play sports and to meet new friends. I hope that our basketball team will do good job this season and I will do my best to help my teammates. Also I like to spend time with my family and I want to learn as much as possible about American life.

When the fall pumpkin decoration on the front step at the Romsos home in Sarona was ready to discard, a hole was cut in the top and it was placed on the bird feeder. This squirrel found the seeds very tasty, but he was also very cautious about ducking his head into the pumpkin to get each seed. — Photo by Gene Romsos
