Spooner Health is open and has first inpatients

SPOONER - Spooner Health opened its doors to patients on Thursday, May 19. The new facility is located on the north side of Spooner at 1280 Chandler Drive, just off CTH H between Hwys. 63 and 53. All hospital services including outpatient and emergency care are now at this new location. The first of nine inpatients to be moved to the new facility on Thursday morning was Steve Ciarico. He was happy to be part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to move to a new hospital. “I’ve been to my share of hospitals,” said Ciarico, “and my stay at Spooner Health was truly a great experience.” When asked what he thought about the new hospital, he brought up the building’s beauty and great view along with his appreciation for the shower and excellent food. He was most impressed with the staff, especially their sincere and genuine concern for him as a patient.

“If there’s a five-star rating, there needs to be a special category for Spooner Health,” said Ciarico. “They deserve above and beyond a five-star. A lot of good things are going to happen in this new facility.” Mike Schafer, Spooner Health CEO, was able to greet all nine inpatients as they made their way off the ambulance and into the new facility. “It was fun to see the patients excitement and appreciation for the new hospital.” “I want to extend a sincere thank-you to all of our staff and the many other people and organizations who worked together to ensure a safe and successful patient move,” says Schafer. “It is a large undertaking to move a hospital to a new location and we couldn’t have done it without great teamwork.” — from Spooner Health For more photos see Spooner Health, Page 3

The first-annual Shell Lake PTA Color-A-Thon was a huge success with over 300 runners paying a fee to run and get splattered with colored dust. They also got a cool T-shirt.

Shell Lake School Board approves staffing changes Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE - The Shell Lake School Board approved several staffing changes and elected board officers during their regular monthly meeting on Monday, May 16. In staffing changes, the resignations of two district staff members were accepted. The board accepted the resignation of Krissa Ward as school psychologist. In

Ward’s letter of resignation, she explained she wanted to explore employment closer to her home to be more available to her young children. The board also accepted the resignation of David Bouchard as varsity boys basketball coach. Bouchard coached for the district for 16 years. In accepting their resignations, the board thanked both Ward and Bouchard for their years of service to the district. The board then approved the hiring of

Joan Gard as business education teacher. Gard fills the one-year position vacated by Christina Cassano. Superintendent David Bridenhagen told the board that after interviews the administration was very impressed with Gard. She has over 25 years of teaching experience, holds multiple certifications and has taught Web design, keyboarding and business education. The board also held officer elections, with Stuart Olson elected as board presi-

dent on a unanimous vote. Pat Pesko and Joel Anderson were nominated for the position of board vice president. After votes were cast by ballot, Pat Pesko was elected to the position by the majority. Linda Nielsen was elected as clerk on a unanimous vote and Nicole Tims was elected to the treasurer position on a unanimous vote.

Annual food drive serves as reminder of food donation rules Danielle Danford | Staff writer SPOONER - “Ordinarily we do not look anything like this, come back in a couple of months and we will look normal,” said Sue Adams, director of the Washburn County Food Pantry. Since Saturday, May 14, food pantry volunteers have been sorting through thousands of pounds of nonperishable food donated through the Stamp Out Hunger food drive done by mail carriers. This year the drive collected 8,612 pounds of food for the Washburn County Food Pantry, surpassing last year’s donation. The food from the Stamp Out Hunger food drive is hoped to last through the end of July or beginning of August, but the drive often results in a portion of expired or damaged goods the pantry can’t do anything with, except throw out. “We always keep the oddest thing; this is what we got, squid. Last year we got octopus, and the oldest thing, ‘97 was the oldest thing we got. Last year I think was ‘94. We have to throw that away,” said Adams. Of the food donated through the Stamp Out Hunger food drive, the pantry’s biggest food drive, about 180 to 200 pounds had to be thrown out because it didn’t meet standards the pantry has to follow. “In terms of what we get it’s a very small quantity,” she said. The pantry does keep nonperishable food that’s expired by two years, but it’s located on a separate shelf and is left to the discretion of pantry visitors to take. Adams explained the pantry has rules they have to follow in order to help people in food emergencies. “We are not permitted … we have all these rules and regulations we have to follow, when you’re a nonprofit, and we do have nonprofit status,” she said. The pantry is required to keep data on every aspect of their operation, from the people that they serve to the daily temperature of the freezer where frozen foods are kept. “The stuff on the shelf is all 2016, ‘17 and ’18, like you are at a grocery store,” she said. The pantry can only hand out food items that are in-date, or those that are not past the manufacturers’ expiration date. The pantry also cannot give out goods that are damaged or look poor. One of their food distributors, Feed My

The pantry has an inspection once a year to make sure they are in compliance; without it the pantry wouldn’t be able to help the 350 families they serve a month. “The pantry was designed for people that had lost their job or are in between things and are having a little difficult time,” she said. Now the food pantry is providing service on a monthly basis to people. These are usually senior citizens, large families or multiple-family homes. “We have homeless people living at the Inn Town Motel because they can no longer afford rent. I had a lady that lived in an ice shack all winter, they are having difficulty trying to pay the rent and they fall through the cracks for low-income housing and those are the people we serve,” she said. People are permitted to come to the pantry once a month, but if they are in need they won’t be turned away. Adams says their statistics show that the majority of people they help come four or less

Washburn County Food Pantry starts with filling out an application for emergency help. This covers basic information including a name, contact information, number of people in the household, and if they receive other types of assistance like SSI, food stamps or WIC. People aren’t asked about their income. “Lots of times if you lost your job you really don’t know your income,” said Adams. The pantry distributes food in a box. The box filled with food is based on how many people need to eat and their ages, a pound of meat comes with every food box. “It basically is two days’ worth of help,” she said. Adams said she spends about $7,000 a month on food, which includes purchasing milk and meat. Food is purchased through the Feed My People food bank or local grocery stores, but only when they have sales on goods that the pantry needs, and they’re within a certain price range.

Community support vital “We appreciate the support of the community. We couldn’t exist since 1984 if it wasn’t for the community behind, helpGuidelines for giving “You want to make sure you give food ing,” said Adams.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Is Ruby’s Pantry Spooner going away? Ruby’s Pantry has been running for five years now. The food is brought to us from our parent organization, Ruby’s Pantry of North Branch, Minn. All of the food is donated to Lyn Sahr’s organization and we get a share of whatever is brought to his warehouse each month. It’s a bit like finding a can without a label! I call it canned surprise. You never know what is coming until you swing the back door of the semitrailer open. Sometimes it is great, sometimes it’s a bit unusual. The good news is that for a $20 donation you will always get four, five, maybe even six times the value in food. I’ve had people tell me that they appreciate the food because it extends their limited income. That doesn’t mean that income regulates who can come and get food. My favorite

saying is “the only qualification for coming is you must get hungry.” Our core team of volunteers not only sets up and passes out the food, but we have been helping people experiencing a financial bump in the road. We keep 10 percent of the donations to be used for that purpose. On our own we have been spending approximately $4,000 each year to help with gas, rent, utilities, etc. Recently we have joined forces with Washburn Christian Outreach who, through their volunteers, administers funds from Ruby’s, The Salvation Army and WCO funds donated by churches of Washburn County. Last year the combined effort aided 160 families with around $17,000 of assistance. In recent months, Ruby’s has experi-

enced decreasing numbers of people coming to get food. That is a concern because it has a direct impact on dollars available to help people of Washburn County. That directly impacts our ability to contribute to WCO and what the churches of the county are doing. Of even greater concern is the fact that our volunteer numbers have diminished. We receive around 19 pallets of food and need to count what is available as well as put it out on tables for the people to see and select what they would like. Traditionally we would have 40 to 50 volunteers to help. Lately our numbers have been much lower. Many hands make the load light. Unfortunately, the reverse is true as well. Are we going to go on? That is up to the community. We need two things to suc-

ceed. Of most importance we need volunteers who are willing to serve three hours one Saturday each month. Secondly, the more people that come each month to receive food, the more funds are available for our hands-up approach to assisting people. Do you have time to come the second Saturday morning of each month? Consider helping us reach out to those in need in our community. Are you a church or community organization? We would love to talk to your group to explain more details. Give us a call. Bill Holden, 715-468-4017 Shell Lake Chuck Adams, 715-635-9309 Spooner

Taking the confusion out of the new crosswalks Larry Samson | Staff writer SHELL LAKE - With the new crosswalk and safety island on Hwy. 63 in Shell Lake, pedestrian crossing should be safer, according to Shell Lake Police Chief Dave Wilson. Ultimately it is the responsibility of the pedestrian for their own safety. The Wisconsin statute states: (1) At an intersection or crosswalk where traffic is not controlled by traffic control signals or by a traffic officer, the operator of a vehicle shall yield the right of way to a pedestrian, or to a person riding a bicycle or electric personal assistive mobility device in a manner which is consistent with the safe use of the crosswalk by pedestrians, who is crossing the highway within a marked or unmarked crosswalk. (2) No pedestrian, bicyclist or rider of an electric personal assistive mobility device shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk, run or ride into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is difficult for the operator of the vehicle

to yield. (3) Whenever any vehicle is stopped at an intersection or crosswalk to permit a pedestrian, bicyclist or rider of an electric personal assistive mobility device to cross the roadway, the operator of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass the stopped vehicle. The crosswalks going from Shell Lake’s Main Street to the park are well marked and are considered uncontrolled. Although there is an advisory signal, one should not rely on it to stop traffic. While there is a safety island, a pedestrian on the island is considered in the crosswalk and traffic must stop and remain stopped until the pedestrian is on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the road. Many drivers break the law when they proceed through the crosswalk with the pedestrian clear but still in the crosswalk. The crosswalk crossing Main Street traffic on Hwy. 63 must yield to pedestrians when turning onto Main Street. A pedestrian crossing the crosswalk should never assume that the vehicle will stop. Police Chief Dave Wilson is showing the newly installed warning lights. After the button is pushed the warning lights will flash. The warning or advisory signal only lets the drivers know your intention to cross; the pedestrian is still responsible for his or her own safety and should cross with care.

Spooner Area Community Education offers more than classes SPOONER - Spooner Area Community Education engages exploration, connection and enrichment. Community education connects resources and strengthens a community through partnerships and citizen involvement, enhancing our community experience through networking and connecting members in a learning center for all ages. ComEd programming depends on active school-community partnerships to enrich the lives of all members while improving schools. Successful programming depends on all of us. The concept of community education has been around since before 1916. John Dewey championed the contemporary principle that the school must become a unifying force in communities in his book “Democracy and Education.” Today, more than ever, public schools are rediscovering the importance of Dewey’s and also Elise Clapp’s writings regarding how schools and communities best work hand in hand to provide maximum learning.

Clapp stated in her 1939 work, “A community school is a used place, a place used freely and informally for all the needs of living and learning. It is, in effect, the place where learning and living converge.” Lifelong learning positively impacts growth for our students and community members. The community education philosophy allows our school district to chart a course toward helping all citizens meet their educational needs instead of simply focusing on K-12 youth in isolation from the total community’s resources. ComEd programming is meant to be offered at a low cost to community members so few barriers stand in the way of learning. Revenue generated from program participants normally covers the costs of instructor payment and materials at as near a break-even point as possible for community programming to continue. There are many ways to pursue personal growth in the Spooner area, as a participant or as a leader - after-school

youth programs, summer school, adult education classes, field trips, business partnerships and other planning opportunities. Nowhere else are the words “to teach is to learn twice” more evident than in Community ed programming. One does not have to have mastered a subject in order to share it with others and gain deeper understanding. A variety of strengths and interests can be utilized in SACE, helping to form smaller communities within the larger community. Spooner Area Community Education leaders have been sharing their passions for finance, technology, arts, crafts, science, performing arts, Spanish, physical activities, food foraging and cooking since 2005. Some leaders prefer teaching children, others prefer teaching adults, while still others are open to teaching all ages! Whatever the age group, community ed is an opportunity to share knowledge of a specific interest to help others grow in a variety of aspects in their lives. The community is strengthened when

others share their talents, interests and skills with others. Fulfill community involvement desires by connecting in an assortment of ways through community ed classes. SACE welcomes new leaders with a variety of interests to share while bringing back favorites to continue the tradition of “keeping the lights on” in schools. Leaders and class ideas are currently being sought for fall classes. If you or someone you know is interested in leading or joining community ed class opportunities contact Karen Collins, community education coordinator, at 715-635-0243, or email collinsk@spooner.k12.wi.us. For more information on summer school, fall classes or other Spooner Area Community Education ventures or to share ideas or names of individuals who might lead contact Collins. All are welcome to explore, connect and enrich. — from SACE

If you’re not wearing a safety belt, we will stop your vehicle and you will get a ticket,” said Shell Lake Chief of Police Dave Wilson. “During the

Click It or Ticket mobilization and throughout the year, we stringently enforce Wisconsin’s mandatory safety belt law to motivate motorists to buckle up every time they drive or ride in a vehicle. Tragically, too many people are needlessly injured or killed because they believed a crash would never happen to them so they did not buckle up.” In Wisconsin, approximately one out of five motorists does not buckle up, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

“Consistent safety belt use is the most effective protection against being ejected from a vehicle during a crash, or thrown around violently inside it and possibly hitting another person in the vehicle with massive force,” Wilson says. “Our officers take safety belt enforcement seriously in an effort to reach the ultimate goal of zero preventable traffic deaths in Wisconsin.” — from Shell Lake Police Department

It’s spring and time for the Spooner Garden Club’s annual plant and bake sale SPOONER - With summer right around the corner it is time to spruce up your gardens and the Spooner Garden Club is happy to help out. A broad variety of perennials for sunny and shady spots, dug from the club’s own gardens, will be waiting to grace homes and businesses during the Spooner Garden Club’s annual spring plant sale at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, at Centennial Park in downtown Spooner. The club members will all be there to answer any gardening questions you may have. Special additions this spring will be the baked treats all made by the garden club members, and the garden art section featuring members’ own designs. The hundreds of plants will be from the members’ gardens. This year the special plants will include herbs,

purple-flowered delphiniums, and lovely astilbes. The twice-annual sale - one is held the first Saturday in June and the other the last Saturday in August - is renowned for having plants that are hardy and thrive in this local area. The club proceeds help the club fund annual scholarships for Spooner and Shell Lake students and the gardens they have created and maintain at Spooner’s Centennial Park, Triangle Park and city hall. The club also maintains a special garden at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery on Hwy. 53, and cohosts the annual New Ventures Garden Seminar, on the third Saturday in March, at Northwood School north of Minong.

Walking off the war Larry Samson | Staff writer SHELL LAKE - Many of the servicemen and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan bring with them the horrific memories of war. Warrior Expedition is a national organization of veterans helping veterans, as they know how to help. Sean Gobin founded Warrior Expedition after walking the full length of the Appalachian Trail. In the 2,185-mile hike he was able to process and come to terms with his war experiences. Miles Vining from Bloomington, Ind., and Michael Maziarka, La Crosse, are walking off their war experiences by way of the Ice Age Trail. The trail starts in St Croix Falls and ends in Door County. The two hikers did not know each other before starting the hike. Vining is a Marine veteran and Maziarka is an Army veteran. By the end of the 1,200-mile hike they might be the best of friends as they face the challenges of the trail. Last year Natalie Koffarnus and Jenni Heisz walked the full length and returned this year to support Maziarka and Vining. Heisz is living in North Dakota and walked the first three days. Koffarnus is a volunteer coordinator in Wisconsin for Warrior Expedition and joined up with them on Friday, May 20, to walk that last

A group of veterans welcomed two Iraqi War veterans to Shell Lake on Saturday, May 21. The two veterans finished their first week on the Ice Age Hiking Trail, traveling 72 miles. The Shell Lake Post of the American Legion rolled out the red carpet with a dinner and fellowship at Lakeview Bar and Grill. It was a time to exchange war stories and to build new friendships. — Photos by Larry Samson day of the first week. The Shell Lake Post of the American Legion hosted a dinner for the two hikers at the Lakeview Bar and Grill on Saturday, May 21. The

dinner was attended by local veterans to show their support of their service and

the challenges they will face on trail as the walk away the war.

Small savings add up to big dreams when it comes to college SPOONER - A doctor or singer or maybe an astronaut? Young children have plenty of dreams when it comes to what they want to be when they grow up. Parents know those career dreams keep changing as their children get older and learn more about the world around them. Parents can also play a big role in those childhood dreams through both conversations and setting aside a little bit of savings. New research on college savings accounts for young children suggests that children with a college savings account are four times more likely to enroll in college and about five times more likely to graduate from college than a child with no savings account. These enrollment and graduation rates were found even in families with less than $500 saved for their child’s future education. “It’s not just about the money,” says Peggy Olive, financial capability specialist with the University of WisconsinExtension and UW-Madison’s Center for Financial Security. “When children see their parents setting aside money for their college education, it sends a powerful message to kids about the importance of investing in their future. “Having a little bit of money set aside for college expenses helps create what we call a college-bound identity,” adds Olive. “Children grow up knowing they are ex-

pected to study some type of trade or career after high school.” Children with a college-bound identity are found to do better in high school, are more engaged in school, and even get higher grades. Having a designated college savings account is also linked to more interaction between parents and children about finances and the future. Parents also benefit and report higher levels of self-esteem and self-confidence when they are able to set money aside. One way that parents can begin to save for their child’s college is to invest in a state 529 plan. To raise awareness about the ease and importance of using 529 plans to save for college, Sunday, May 29,  is designated National 529 College Savings Day. In Wisconsin, an Edvest 529 plan can be opened with a $25 contribution. Earnings in a 529 account grow both federal and state tax free when used for qualified higher education expenses. You can find out more about Wisconsin’s college savings plans on their website, 529.wi.gov, or by calling toll-free 888-338-3789. For more information on 529 plans or for more information about family financial management, contact Jeanne Walsh, UWEX Washburn County family living educator, at 715-635-4444. — from UWEX

MAY 25, 2016 - WASHBURN COUNTY REGISTER - PAGE 11

s we approach the last Monday in May, we are A preparing for the federal holiday set aside to remember the men and women who died while serv-

ing our country. The United States’ Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day, which first was observed in 1868. Our Civil War was fought between 1861-1865. After visiting the Shell Lake Public Library earlier this spring, I returned home with a PBS series, “Mercy Street,” on DVD that I had checked out for viewing. “Mercy Street” is a medical drama depicting the Civil War. Rather than showing the battlefield, the setting is a mansion house/hotel owned by Southerners, the Green family, that is turned into a Union hospital, much to their dislike. It is in Union-occupied Alexandria, Va. The show follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on

Abraham Lincoln visiting the hospital. An assassination attempt was in place and diverted because the person involved saw his loved one standing next to the president as the fuse to a black-powder keg was lit. The only actor I recognized in the series is Josh Radnor who portrays Dr. Jed Foster. Radnor is best known for his role as Ted in the CBS series “How I Met Your Mother.” “Mercy Street” will return for season two on PBS in January 2017. American soldiers have been called to active duty many times in our country’s history. Let us not forget the sacrifices that have been made to ensure our freedom. Even just the fact that I can sit in my comfortable home and watch a television series at my leisure without the fear of attack is a blessing.

Heroes of yesterday O

fttimes in moments of idleness my thoughts will wander to favorite places, to my personal champions of categorical stardom. This particular day would be one of military wonderment. Leading the U.S. Navy in WWII would be one Chester W. Nimitz, the man who ran the show for the Navy in the Pacific. Nimitz was a low-key, soft-spoken individual not prone to criticism of his subordinates. Ever thoughtful of the ranks, he interested himself in every aspect of naval warfare from the highest command to the task of the lowest seaman. Nimitz possessed enviable qualities. He was a four-star admiral. There were many fine people in the other services, too many to write about in this story. I will finish with a well-known story about a lesser-known man. H.W.O. Kinnard was the G-3 (operations) of the 101st Airborne Division. On the 22nd of December in 1944, during the heat of the Battle of the Bulge, Col. Kinnard, along with other staff members, found themselves in a cellar hopefully away from German artillery. The 101st Airborne Division was then hopelessly surrounded by the German Army and at that point the German commander extended to the division commander of the 101st Airborne Division an ultimatum, “Surrender or we’ll blow the town of Bastogne to bits,” or something similar. Acting division commander Brig. Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe muttered the word “nuts” as he found a piece of paper to write on. McAuliffe wondered aloud as to what he should say. Kinnard came back with, “That last crack you made, Sir, was a good one.” The answer would simply be “nuts.” As they say, the rest is history. However, our story isn’t quite over. Lt. Col. Kinnard went on to become Maj. Gen. Kinnard. He was the com-

Mary B. Olsen honor the dead. Our family always included remembering all of our family members who passed away and were buried in a local cemetery. By the end of May, the peonies would be blooming, and I would help our family carry bouquets of them, and other flowers, to decorate graves. We might have clumps of violets to set in the ground, as you were allowed to put them on the graves in the cemetery at that time. Fresh flowers would not last long, but they added their color, pink and red and white blooms, and their scent to the air, speaking volumes in their solemn beauty. Some people stayed home or went to community events. We usually had a family picnic at a grassy place near the river where the farmers allowed people to spend their holiday near the woods in nature’s quiet environment. There would be a few folks with their families. No crowds, just a lot of space for us kids to run and enjoy being free outdoors.

Community voices Bud Hoekstra manding general of the 1st Cavalry Division. Myself, Bud Hoekstra, arriving at Fort Benning, Ga., from Korea, was one day on my way from Harmony Church to Main Post, nine miles. I was hitchhiking and that was against regulations. Suddenly in the distance rounding the curve, I spied a sedan displaying two big stars. Two stars meant major general and instead of the usual buttchewing, this would be a royal buttchewing. I hoped he wouldn’t stop, but he did. The big sedan cruised to a stop and the driver, a sergeant E-5, motioned for me to get in. I jumped into the passenger side of the front seat and the general asked me where I was going. “I’m heading for the gym on Main Post, Sir!” The general thought that was a good idea, declining to mention the breach of regulations. I had read about his suggestion of the word “nuts” some 20 years earlier, but thought better of asking him about it. The general was now home and as he got out, he told his driver, to “Drop this gentleman off at the gym.” I now alluded to the sergeant that I thought that I would be in for the butt-chewing of my life, two stars and all. The sergeant had a subtle smirk on his face and simply offered, “That’s what the general has colonels for.” Gen. Kinnard took the 1st Cavalry Division to Vietnam and retired a lieutenant general rating three stars. I was too short* for Vietnam, and watched the cav go. Soon after that I was discharged. *Short means released from active duty, not enough time left for Vietnam. I salute the men and women that sacrificed their lives to ensure that freedom would always be the American way.

in town who gather after a parade to honor the people who served in the military. I hope I will see and hear the strident music of the school band. It is always a pleasure. It’s good to see and hear the marching band, and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. I know it is a time to visit cemeteries. That may be my goal, but I may choose to remain at home and celebrate quietly with family members. I look for sunshine on this day that is really the best holiday I recall from my younger days as it was the kickoff to the summer vacation for schoolchildren. As a child, the national holiday was celebrated in every small town and always there were parades and band music and veterans marching, as well as political speeches and other civic ceremonies. These were well attended. The cemetery would be a sea of floral tributes and flags were flown from every front porch and business place. People even decorated cars with little flags. You would be with your family and you could visit with people you hadn’t seen for a while. You would see the new babies and how much some kids had grown. There were always friendly greetings, joking and laughing going on, and kids in their summer clothes. It was usually very hot weather. In my childhood hometown they had a church service in the cemetery. It was almost like the Fourth of July but no fireworks. The reason for this day is to decorate graves and

One part of the holiday I remember is something we don’t hear much about anymore. We would not pass the day without hearing the reports on the radio news of the number of traffic fatalities that were mounting hourly. While we tuned in to listen to the auto race at the Indianapolis Speedway, we could hear about the racers in the lead and, in between, the news would come on giving the accident reports. This was tragedy happening when ordinary people drove out to celebrate their holiday and became victims of traffic accidents. There would be hundreds of people who were killed. It was like the states were competing to see if they could have more fatalities than other states. It would be broadcast in such a normal way, as news was given, that as a child I would wonder if we would get home safely from our picnic. It is heroic to give one’s life for their country, but to give it up to traffic on a holiday, that was more tragic. My memories of family history in the military go back to World War I, when two of my uncles fought in Europe, helping the French be free. Then came WWII, when I was a child, and many men from our town died in that war. The people who were in the service are remembered for their bravery in the service of their country. We honor their sacrifice so that we remain free. We can be thankful that seat belts and the latest automobiles designed with safety of the drivers and passengers in mind have led to far fewer fatalities on our highways.

Shell Lake top seed in playoff

First baseman Logan Zebro watches the ball land into his mitt as the throw is made on the pickoff. It is important for the pitcher to make that throw to keep the runner close to the base.

Cassidy Schroeder takes a few practice swings before stepping up to bat. The Lakers have been hot as they wind up their regular season finishing second in the Lakeland West Conference, three games behind Grantsburg. In the last three games the Lakers outscored their opponents 41-5. Shell Lake swept St. Croix Falls in a doubleheader, 8-7 and 10-5, on Monday, May 16.

The Unity base runner tries to jump over James Crawford on this tag but he is unsuccessful. Unity is the No. 1 team in the Lakeland West Conference, taking Shell Lake 7-0 in their first game on Thursday, May 19, and 4-3 in their second game on Saturday, May 21. Shell Lake is the top-seeded team in their Division 4 regional because they play in a Division 3 conference.

Grace Anderson arrives at second base just as the throw is caught. Through smart baserunning, Shell Lake swept Unity in a doubleheader, 7-3 and 17-5, on Thursday, May 19.

e stood before my desk with a set of orders and said, “FTC Nichols reporting for duty, Sir.” Not hearing his designator very clearly I asked, “What do you do for the Navy?” “Sir,” he said crisply, “I recently completed a tour of duty on a guided missile frigate. I was the one who was responsible for making certain that the azimuth on each weapon system was operational and accurate, Sir.” He certainly had my attention and spoke in a convincing manner. There was no doubt in my mind that he was competent to do his job and that all weapon systems under his control would deliver their missiles to the intended target at the precise moment. God wants to place his azimuth in our hearts. David wrote, “My heart is steadfast O God; My heart is steadfast.” So committed was he to the Lord that he emphasized the word steadfast by stating it twice. But there is something more. The word steadfast can also be interpreted, even more correctly in this verse, as confident! Here we find David, after trying many different paths to find satisfaction, finally found it in God. It was his firm faith that was the result of an inner transformation that was now going to be visible by the way he worshiped and served God. When we completely commit our lives to God, he will give us his guidance system to control the destiny of our lives. His word will become our azimuth.

to North Myrtle Beach, S.C., with Cru, Campus Crusade for Christ. Allison is a student at Lake Superior College in Duluth, and has been working full time at a hospital. She applied for the trip to South Carolina, went through the screening process and was accepted for the summer mission. She will be gone for 10 weeks. To say that her mom, Carol Johnson, is proud of her would be an understatement. Actually, we all are. We all wish her good luck on her trip and hope she will be able to take some time to relax while she’s in South Carolina. Caitlyn Weaver, granddaughter of Rick and Joan Stetler, will be graduating from Cumberland High School this year. Caitlyn plans to take a year off from school. She will be working for a family carnival in Wisconsin and Minnesota this summer, and then plans to move to Santa Barbara, Calif., in the fall. Caitlyn plans to get a job in Santa Barbara, decide on what she wants to do, and then go to a college in California next year. Sounds like a fun way to spend the year after graduation. Congratulations and good luck Caitlyn. Don Lehmann celebrated a birthday this past week with a party at the hunting shack hosted by Anitia. There were lots of family and friends there to help him celebrate, and, of course, Anitia had plenty of delicious food for everyone and a German chocolate cake. It wouldn’t have been a party for Don without that. I won’t tell you how old Don is, but it’s about time he retires. He won’t do that, of course. No one can keep him out of the tractors, not that they try. But you could slow down a little, Don. Happy birthday. Most of you probably know that the chief cook and owner of the Red Brick, Deb Lehmann, has been off work due to illness for the past week or so. Sharai Hefty said she would like everyone to keep their fingers crossed and hope for Deb’s speedy recovery because, until she comes back to work, customers are going to have to put up with Sharai’s cooking. Sharai’s too hard on herself. She’s doing a great job. But we all hope that Deb’s feeling better soon. Our family had a great trip to Massachusetts. Jerry and Savanna Marsh and Lynn, Garett, Kandice and Kane Thon flew out, but Duane and I drove. We are all so proud of Sanara. She graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a degree in management engineering with operations management. WPI is a very small campus, so it didn’t take long for Sanara to show us around. The buildings and grounds are absolutely beautiful. Most of the buildings were built in the middle 1800s. And, in about the middle of the campus is a fantastic beech tree that is about 150 years old. I plan to plant a beech tree as soon as possible, but I’m afraid Duane and I will never see it get as big as that one is. It was awe inspiring. And, of course, Sanara took us for a walking tour of the freedom trail in Boston and showed us the office building she will be working in. We didn’t walk the entire freedom trail, but we covered over six miles of it. It was so interesting that we didn’t even notice until the next day that we had walked so far. On the way home, Duane and I stopped for a day at Niagara Falls. Awesome! And then stopped in Madison for lunch with Jim Copus, Ed and Charlene Hefty, and Sue Meier and a trip through the arboretum. Duane and I had gone to the arboretum last fall and he wanted to see how it looks in the spring. We had a wonderful trip, but it’s always great to get home again.

Lynn Thon and I had a big day on Saturday. We started out in Rice Lake where Wrigley Marsh was playing Tball. Those little guys are really out there trying like the big kids. They only play one inning, and everyone one gets to bat and run the bases. When it was Wrigley’s turn to bat, we were all ready to cheer him on but, after telling the coach something, he ran away from home plate and she called another little batter up. Well, the reason he ran out was that he had picked up a rock and some flowers (weeds) for his mom and he came out to the bleachers and asked me to hold them for him so he could bat. T-ball is pretty informal. Anyway, when he did get up to bat he hit the ball pretty good and made it to first base. Then, when all the runners started up again, he ran to second, then third and then passed the little guy who was running from third and got home before him. It was fun. Oh, one other thing about T-ball. Oliver Barta’s mom was trying to explain to him what he would be doing at the game, and she said that he would bat the ball, run to first, then run to second, then to third and finally run home. Oliver was a little upset about that, looked up at her, and asked, “Can’t I just run to Aunt (someone’s) house? That’s closer.” OK, from Rice Lake we drove down to White Bear Lake to watch Tru Lehmann at her very first gymnastics meet. Tru’s group had about 60 kids participating, and they did the balance beam and bars and did somersaults and other gymnastic-type moves. Tru really did a great job at the meet and looked lovely in her new leotard. I hope she stays interested in gymnastics because it was so much fun going to the meet and watching her perform. She is adorable. I guess that’s about all I know from Barronett this week. It’s great to be home! See you next time.

Alvin Olson and his wife, Judy, of Florida, are here visiting relatives and friends for a month or so. He is the brother of Arlys Santiago and the father of Heidi Hile. He grew up in Heart Lake, the son of Harry and Olivia Olson. Harry was one of 15 children growing up in Timberland. Marion Shattuck returned back to Glenview after spending a couple of weeks with her son in Middleton. Marion’s son, Jim, lives in Trego and Jim’s wife, Kathy, is in Milwaukee helping her daughter, Lexie, who just had a baby. Kathy is the daughter of Dorothy Anderson, who just passed away. Nick Pederson was here from the Twin Cities visiting his dad, Jeff, and also Brent and Nicole. He got in a little turkey hunting, too. On Saturday, Cheri Minot and Michelle and Tanya went to Chanhassen Dinner Theatre to see “Beauty and the Beast.” On Sunday, Cheri Minot had a birthday dinner for Lori Sumner, along with her dad, Peder, and Mark Minot. Birthday greetings, Lori! Last Thursday, Curt Pederson came up to do some work for his dad, Peder, and he treated Curt and Cheri to lunch. A group from Glenview went to the Lakeview Bar and Grill for lunch on Thursday. Last Saturday we had a recital with Shania playing the piano. On Saturday, May 21, Sue and Larry came to take me to a birthday party for 1-year-old Colton, grandson of Tim and Sue Pederson. It was held at Chippewa Falls. Happy birthday, Colton! Birthday greeting also to Zino Tully, Bunn Weathers and Nate Collins, who all turned another year older. The cardiologist’s diet: If it tastes good, spit it out.

I have to thank Sharai Hefty for doing the news for me last week. Poor Sharai, I dropped it on her at the last minute. I thought Lynn Thon was taking her laptop with her on vacation, but she didn’t, so I didn’t have any way to do it out there. Actually, I could have gone to a library, I guess, but it was a good excuse to be lazy. Anyway, I really appreciate the way Sharai always steps up to the plate for me when I ask. Oh, and speaking of Sharai, she and I are going to host a Hefty/Kittleson family reunion in August. We are going to send out invitations to as many relatives as we can think of, but if you happen to be a descendent of Bill and Ellen Hefty or Gifford and Alvina Kittleson, and we miss sending you an invitation, please feel free to join us. It will be held on Aug. 20 at the shelter by the basketball court in Cumberland. Tonja Metnik called with some very good news for those of you who missed the plant sale at Wiesner Chapel a couple of weeks ago. The Cumberland ECU is holding their annual plant sale as we speak. It started Monday, May 23, and will run until Monday, May 30. The sale is open daily from 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. If there is anything you need in the way of perennials or vegetables, stop in there first. The only way you could possibly get a better deal for anything you need for your garden would be if one of your friends happened to be cleaning out their perennials and decided to give them away. Trust me on this, you really don’t want to miss this sale. Kaylee Peer is the proud winner of the Fire Poster Contest of the second grade at Cumberland Elementary School. Her winning picture was a picture of Sparky the fire dog wearing a fire helmet and in big red bubble letters the words “Go Sparky.” She was superexcited about getting a ride home from school in the fire truck. She said that it was very difficult to buckle up in the back of the truck and that it feels as though the truck was going backward. There were four children who won the contest, and so four little passengers in the truck. The child who would be getting dropped off at home was the one who sat in front, and the rest were in back. Well, Kaylee was the last to be dropped off so she had a chance to sit in back for most of the ride. She said that the sirens are in front of the truck, so when the sirens were going and she was sitting in front, it was almost impossible to hear what anyone was saying. Oh, before the trip home, though, the kids were treated to a Dilly Bar at the Cumberland Dairy Queen. And, Kaylee said that one of the firemen on the truck was the brother of a teacher at school and one of them was her mom’s boss at 3-M, so she said that she had a great time talking with them. Kaylee told her mom, Ali, that the ride home in the fire truck was a better gift than anything. Trystin Neitzel, who plays baseball for both the JV and varsity teams in Cumberland, had a fantastic game for JV last week. He hit his first home run of the season. Actually, that wouldn’t have been such a big deal if the bases hadn’t been loaded, so the home run just happened to be a grand slam. Yea Trystin! The coach offered to give him the ball to keep for a memento, but Trystin didn’t take it. Actually, they only had three game balls and Trystin didn’t want them to have to play with only two. Cumberland won that game, by the way, with a score of 16 to 8. The members of Barronett Lutheran are extremely proud of Allison Socha, one of our young members, who will be leaving this Wednesday on a mission trip

What beautiful days we’ve been having. Yes, Mr. Sunshine was shining and the temperatures were warm. We certainly need rain though. Yes, things are drying up, including my yard. A very happy birthday to Helena Benjamin on her special day, May 26. Have a wonderful day. May 27, a very happy anniversary to Dean and Nancy Bergquist as they celebrate their special day. A very happy birthday to Buzz LaPorte on his special day, May 28, with lots more to come. May 28, a very happy birthday to Judy Cornelison as she enjoys her special day. Many more, Judy. A very happy birthday to Austin Stellrecht on his special day, May 30. Enjoy your day, Austin. A very happy anniversary to Janie and Rick Lauterbach as they celebrate seven years together with many more to come. May 31, a very happy birthday to Debbie LaVeau and also to Spencer Redding. Many more to both of you. A very happy anniversary to Jeff and Nancy Stellrecht as they enjoy their special day with lots more to come. Big trucks with pulp have been going by my house. They are loaded heavy and the two trucks go together. They hauled most of the week and have lots more to haul. Talking with Sandy Atkinson, she tells us their son, Jim, was home for the weekend. A person can see in the woods now. The leaves haven’t taken over yet and you see all the different colors of green. Talking with Myrna Atkinson, she tells us she has part

of her garden in and plans to put the rest in this coming week. She says they bought a new furnace for their house and are having it installed. Spooner seniors graduate on Friday, May 27, as will Shell Lake. We wish the grads a great future. Doug and Karen Vanderhoof joined the Cash Vanderhoofs for Mother’s Day and had supper out together. It’s too bad the Vanderhoofs have to come home and milk those bossies. They certainly tie you down, don’t they? Congratulations to Tim Pederson who was named the Wisconsin Association Career and Technical Education Outstanding Instructor at the 80th awards banquet held April 15 in Oshkosh. After teaching 29 years, you certainly deserve it. Talking with Diane Hulleman, she tells me she got her garden planted now and is working on all the flowers she’s putting in this year. Diane visited with a number of other ladies and they visited with Mary Jane Dunn. On Saturday morning, the Chad Jensens came to stay overnight with Diane. They left Sunday forenoon. While here they went to Butternut Hills for a graduation. I certainly wish someone would take a bunch of coyotes out. For the past 1-1/2 weeks they’ve been in Richy’s pasture a-howling every night. His cows beller and run as I hear them getting further and further away from my home. I’ve called a number of times to Richy’s to get him up and he just keeps snoring. Saturday night they were on the west side of my house and also on the east side. It’s getting scary. Diane Hulleman says there was a coyote out across the road from her house. Sunday at Evelyn Melton’s were Vicki and Don Trott

Summer is fast approaching with Memorial Day already here. The much warmer weather is right around the corner, so get your summer clothes out and be ready. The trilliums are blooming! The warm week and pleasant sunshine have brought the trillium to life in the wetland park. If you get a chance, take a walk and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the trails and the beauty of the blooming trillium and opening ferns. If you are concerned about mosquitoes or ticks, there is a can of Cutter Repellent placed at each entrance to the park for everyone to use. The article in the Sawyer County Record this week stated that “research is showing that removing buckthorn has resulted in fewer ticks.” That sounds like great news for all of us. Buckhorn cutting is beginning again at the wetland park, and the DNR is encouraging people to remove buckthorn that is growing in their own backyard. If you would like to know more about how to eradicate it at your home, call 715-865-5091 and the wetland park committee will give you some helpful information. Five new bricks have been placed in the Memory Walk as you read this, so come and remember the families memorialized there. Most recent count on engraved memorial bricks is 246. The Stone Lake Area Historical Society Museum opens for the season at noon on Friday, May 27. Come and enjoy the many new displays and enjoy a visit with one of your neighbors who may be the museum greeter that day. We can always use folks who are willing to give four hours per month, or even once a season, to act as the greeter for the museum. Without these wonderful volunteers, the museum could not be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday each week. Remember, the museum opens at noon and closes at 4 p.m. on those days. If you have a special event, perhaps a family reunion, and would like to visit the museum on a day it is not open, we will do our best to accommodate you. Just call 715-865-5091 or 715-865-4940 to make arrangements. There will be Memorial Day services at the Evergreen Cemetery on Monday, May 30, at 1 p.m. Please come out and honor our veterans. The Stone Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is putting every effort into making Stone Lake a community in which to live and prosper and they are committed to seeing our area thrive and grow. It is in the town’s best interest to encourage new businesses and visitors to the area, and that endeavor is enhanced by the overall welcoming appearance expressed when visitors come to town.

They are asking local businesses and homeowners to put their best foot forward to present a town that is proud of its heritage and welcoming to local residents and visitors. Please take the time to look around your properties and consider a cleanup and repair effort where it may be needed. There is currently a housing shortage in our area which means presenting a clean, well-maintained property enhances values for you, your neighborhood and the community. The annual Stone Lake Area Garage Sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 4. Sign-up forms may be picked up at local Stone Lake businesses in downtown Stone Lake or online at stonelakewi.com. Registrations are due no later than Saturday, May 28. There will also be a multifamily garage sale from 7 a.m. till 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, at the Stone Lake Town Hall. The Stone Lake Lions Fish Fry will also be going on from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Lions Hall on June 4. Come on out for some delicious fish. The Stone Lake Lions Hall is available for rent for graduation parties, weddings, family reunions, etc. Please call John at 715-865-3041 to reserve. A calendar and information are posted at the hall. The Stone Lake Farmers Market will begin Thursday, May 26, from 2 to 6 p.m. and will continue every Thursday through Sept. 15. The new location is at Northwest Wisconsin Realty at the corner of Hwy. 70 and Main Street in downtown Stone Lake. Vendors are wanted. Mark July 9 on your calendars. The Stone Lake Senior Center will again have a pig roast at Red Schoolhouse Wines. Also in July, Bingo will begin on the patio of Red Schoolhouse Wines on Wednesdays. Be a greeter at the Stone Lake History Museum. A fun, interesting afternoon with a visiting grandchild, niece, nephew or friend. A mere four hours meeting nice people and enjoying the history of our Stone Lake community. How does it work? Meet at the museum at 11:30 a.m. Put up the flag, open the caboose, and turn on the lights, then greet visitors. At 4 p.m., bring the flag in, lock up the caboose, and turn off the lights. Volunteer for any Friday, Saturday or Sunday, June through September. Call Christine Maestri at 715- 865-4131 or email Chris at chmaestri@gmail.com. Have a wonderful Memorial weekend and be safe. Mary Nilssen can be reached at 715-865-4008 or upnorthnils2@gmail.com.

and Peggy Vesta and Don Lane. They were having a gab fest around Evelyn’s table. Too bad the table can’t talk as we’d hear some great stories. I see Richy’s corn is up along with others in the area. Myself, I’d like to turn the corn plants upside down and plant them with the ears down. Some farmers are already chopping their alfalfa. I see their trucks go by pulling the self-unloading wagons. I also hear one farmer is done with the chopping. Great job, guys. Butch and Loretta Vanselus have been working all week to get Harold Stone’s trailer emptied. Well, they got it about half cleaned out Butch says and next weekend they are planning on having a garage sale. Their daughter, Marjean Fisher, came up to work on it Saturday. Loretta says she can’t help much as she is in a wheelchair. Scatter sunshine. Have a great week!

Marian Furchtenicht

This past week, we’ve had just fantastic weather, picture-perfect summer days and a beautiful, full moon on the weekend to enjoy. It’s time to make hay, but is sounds like some unsettled weather for this week ahead and we need rain badly, it’s getting pretty dry. Folks have reported lots of orioles this year, enjoying jelly and syrup feeders, along with the hummers competing. Grandson Ryan said they had a blue bunting. I saw my first fawn of the year on May 19 by the walking bridge down by the pond. It was so little. I have three families of goslings of different sizes. Only one in one, three in one, and eight little ones in the biggest bunch. So neat to watch them, single file with an adult on both ends. I have always wondered if it’s Mom or Dad taking the lead. The woodlands are full to trilliums and the fronds of the fiddlehead ferns are forming. Some folks say mosquitoes are starting. I haven’t seen one yet, but that’s OK. Daughter Mary sent me a phone picture of a tent of caterpillars that she saw while out walking. Said there were seven or eight webs of those creepy things. Hope we don’t get them again. I remember years ago when there were so many they brought in some big black friendly flies to get rid of them. Our May days are numbered now and the busy Memorial weekend is coming up. The warm days should bring fish closer to the shores for folks. The Zimmermans, Janet, Marilyn and Renee, have been working faithfully getting the Sarona Cemetery shaped up as they always do. Our thanks to them. Talked to Gloria Frey. She reports son Jim is about the same. His siblings, also Pete’s son, Ben, all went down to the Twin Cities to see him on Sunday. Do keep Jim and the family in your prayers. They’re taking one day at a time. Renee Zimmerman, Ben and Brianna LaVeau and Michelle Magnes went together and took in a Brewers game recently. Janet and Marilyn Zimmerman had attended the new Spooner hospital open house and report it’s beautiful. Charlotte Ross visited Elfreda West one day and Joe

and Deb Elbe visited and brought her some goodies after church on Sunday. Al and Jolene Loew attended a graduation party in Menomonie for grandson Andrew who graduated from WITC in Rice Lake. He has already gotten a job with a contractor. Jolene is feeling some better. She got a shot in her shoulder for her arthritis. Ryan and Jessie Furchtenicht threw a little party for his help on Friday night. They are starting another season in the concrete business. Russ Furchtenicht attended a meeting in Eau Claire one day for town chairmen and others from this northwest area on our rural roads that are in need of repair and where the money is coming from. Our town isn’t in too bad of shape because we had revenue from the landfill for several years, a few years ago. Son Russ, Nancy and Arianne stopped down one evening and Roger came and mowed the yard. It’s so nice to have kids. I’m so lucky. Visitors at my house this past week were Ryan, Jessie Furchtenicht and kids one night; Ben Helmer on Wednesday; Al and Jolene Loew stopped, bringing a beautiful solar gazing ball for on the deck; brother-in-law Merle Wilber had lunch with me, he came down after visiting Sharon at the swing bed in the new Spooner hospital; Libbie DeTrent came out after church Sunday with some goodies; Norm and Donna Ness visited Sunday evening bringing her famous luscious peach Bundt cake and pink petunias for me. Glad to report Norm is feeling some better after getting a shot for back problems. So keep on the mend Norm. It’s time to garden! Friday, daughter Mary took me to Mayo in Eau Claire for a pacemaker follow-up. Sara Mathison and little Grant went with us. So we had a good day together.

Civics class re-enacts accident

In this re-enacted scene of a car crash, Ashley Clark is taken from the scene of the accident. She survived because she was wearing a seat belt. Her father was not so lucky as he died at the scene while her mother was airlifted out with extensive injuries. In this scenario an alcohol-impaired driver struck her family car. At the scene of a horrific accident, the EMTs from North Memorial and the Shell Lake Fire Department work feverishly to care for the victims. While this is a re-enactment, events like this one are real and happen far too frequently in Wisconsin.

One “victim” was airlifted out by a North Memorial helicopter. Amy Skattebo was loaded onto the helicopter and flown out to a level-one trauma center.

Washburn County coroner Sarah McCumber was on the scene to deal with the deaths, much like she would be if it were a real accident. It felt too real for many of those participating in the re-enactment. Many of the responders said they have been to worse accidents.

Photos by Larry Samson

You could have heard a pin drop as the seventh- to 12th-grade students at the Shell Lake School watched a traffic accident re-enactment on Friday, May 20. The re-enactment was hosted by the high school civics class as a final project for the school year. They worked with Washburn County Sheriff’s Deputy William Schafer to coordinate North Memorial Ambulance, Wisconsin State Patrol, the Shell Lake Fire Department and local law enforcement officers for the event.

In the midst of all the chaos, State Patrol Officer Evan Fox gives the “drunk driver” a field sobriety test. It is determined that he is impaired. He is cuffed and loaded into the state patrol car and driven away. Fox is a graduate of Shell Lake and has chosen to serve and to protect.
