Recycling Control Commission of Burnett and Washburn counties will lose $89,000 in state funding this year

One-eyed Jack and quite a few others See page 2

by Jessica Beecroft WASHBURN & BURNETT COUNTIES – The state is cutting funding for waste management and recycling services. Effective immediately, the two counties will lose a total of $89,113 in funding from the state this year. Sheldon Johnson, executive director of the Recycling Control Commission, said it’s likely cuts will be the same for next year as well. This means the counties may have to start dealing with the waste removal and recycling themselves. The Washburn County board has discussed passing the duty back to the towns. The RCC has contracted services with Allied Waste for Burnett and Washburn counties for recycling services for over 20 years. The contract with Allied Waste is on the end of the third year in a three-year contract. The committee met Monday, See No cash, page 3

Suing who?

Neighbors of “home turned resort” are not targeting county in pursuit of legal action

by Jessica Beecroft WASHBURN COUNTY - Ed Olund, retired Washburn County Board member, who also served on the zoning committee for years, is fighting along with his neighbors to keep their neighborhood quiet and safe. After hearing from the Long Lake neighbors and corporate council, Jeff Kohler, representing Washburn County, it was understood that Washburn County was going to be sued. However, after speaking with Olund on Monday, June 27, he made it clear that the neighbors on Little Bear Road on Long Lake are not necessarily suing Washburn County. They are suing; but have not indicated who they are suing. After asking the county’s zoning committee to enforce the zoning restrictions that restrict resorts in residential areas, the neighbors have decided they need to start legal action to have the current zoning regulations enforced by the county. In a class action lawsuit, several neighbors have come together to file a lawsuit. Attorney Sarah Donnell from Eau Claire is representing them in this case. Jill Keefer, neighbor of the Big Bear Resort, expressed her disgust at the situation. “We have tried so hard to get them to do their job. I just don’t understand. It seems like it would be so simple. I find it so frustrating that we have to get an attorney to have them do their job.” In the meantime, Kohler will be ready to go to court for the county if need be.

Making way for today’s water taxis

by Diane Dryden SHELL LAKE - The beautiful and functional new courtesy dock/campers dock is actually a salute to Shell Lake’s past. During the early part of the 1900s, when the loggers had finished taking what they wanted out of the area and left thousands and thousands of stumps, the farmers moved in and cleared the land for pastures and cropland. Visitors also took advantage of the devastated land around the lake and many bought huge pieces of property in order to build family vacation compounds, two of which are still functioning, filled to capacity each year. Since there wasn’t a road around the lake years ago, and since the railroad was in full swing between Chicago and eventually Superior, summer res-

idents would take the train to Shell Lake and then go by water taxi to their property. The water taxi was in constant use between the lake residents and town, bringing them in to shop and eat and involve them in popular activities like the free Thursday night movies and proceedings at the popular auditorium. You might say the new dock is reprising the past by offering a similar service. No longer is a water taxi needed because residents have their own watercrafts to transport them to town. Now that there’s a dock to use for free, thanks to large and small public donations still coming into the committee and the largess of the city of Shell Lake, it will be kind of like the old days, going into town by personal water taxis.

The Lions made a generous donation to the project and Jim Andreas handed Gary Burkhart a check while the dock committee – consisting of Ken Schultz, Diane Dryden and Jack Dahlstrom, and Mayor Sally Peterson – looked on. Dave Haroldson, representing the Shell Lake State Bank (not shown) also presented a generous check to committee head Gary Burkhart. - Special photos

New district lines drawn

by Jessica Beecroft WASHBURN COUNTY – On Tuesday, June 21, the Washburn County Board of Supervisors approved the new tentative district lines. Washburn County Clerk Lynn Hoeppner presented two new plans to the county board. Based on the census data, she developed the maps for the 21 districts. “I tried to keep the districts together as much as possible. It was kind of hard because there was a big population shift in Long Lake’s population,” Hoeppner explained. The second plan came recommended by both Hoeppner and the county’s executive committee because, of the two, the plan divides the Town of Madge into three county districts instead of

n bu r h s Wa nty u o C

four. The county board had to vote on a tentative plan and now submit the tentative plan to the towns for their consideration. After getting feedback from the towns, the county will vote on a final plan which will be forwarded to the state. The state wants the districts to be within a 10-percent deviation from the average population, and the restructuring in plan one would result in a 3-percent deviation. “The biggest township difference is 19 people. It isn’t a whole lot different than it was. The biggest difference is Madge,” Hoeppner explained. Now it is time for the townships to offer their feedback on the proposed district lines.

Justices have conflicting reports of office altercation


by Gilman Halsted Wisconsin Public Radio MADISON - Supreme Court Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and David Prosser have both issued conflicting statements about an alleged physical altercation between them earlier this month. Reports surfaced late last week from knowledgeable sources about an altercation between the two justices in Bradley’s office during the week of June 12. The incident involved Prosser grabbing Bradley around the neck after she told him to leave her office. The sources, who spoke with reporters

from WPR and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, asked not to be named to protect their professional relationships. State Senate President Scott Fitzgerald says he’s surprised and suspicious about the accuracy of the reports. “The Supreme Court’s crazier than the Legislature apparently,” says Fitzgerald. “It’s hard to believe it actually went down the way it was described. And I think with the justices not really making many comments publicly, it’s hard for me to believe that that really happened, but from the way it’s being reported it appears that certainly something hap-

pened over there.” Prosser released a statement Saturday saying that once the facts are reviewed the anonymous claims will be proven false. Later that night, Bradley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Prosser did grab her by the neck, and she disputed another source who said she was the aggressor and that Prosser was just defending himself. Other sources say other justices were present during the incident which happened during an argument about when to release the ruling on the new collective bargaining law.

by Kristen Durst Wisconsin Public Radio STATEWIDE - Legislators will consider another bill this year that would allow unpasteurized milk to be sold. But a recent outbreak is raising yet more questions about its safety. Last year, raw milk enthusiasts were almost successful in their efforts to legalize its sale. A bill passed the Legislature with bipartisan support, but then-Governor Jim Doyle vetoed it, citing safety concerns. Republican Sen. Glenn Grothman of West Bend, who’s co-sponsoring new legislation, says that he hopes to get it signed into law this time around. “Scott Walker has implied during the campaign that if a bill got to his desk that he would view it sympathetically.”

But more questions about raw milk safety have emerged this month after unpasteurized milk from an unnamed farm sickened at least 16 kids and family members who drank it at an event in Racine. One person was hospitalized. Grothman, however, says that incident doesn’t give him pause. “I drink raw milk and what happened in Racine will not prevent me from drinking raw milk in the future. I know the things you should look out for when you drink raw milk.” As written, the new bill lacks a lot of safeguards that were included in the last, like requiring all farmers to test their milk for pathogens. That irks Scott Rankin, chair of UW’s Food Science Department. He says this latest bill is so oversimplified, “It doesn’t even come up

to the standard of any food, really.” Rankin served on a committee of dairy experts that published a lengthy report on raw milk safety recommendations. And while their suggestions were not included in the new bill, Grothman says he’s open to amending it. - This report was produced in collaboration with the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

June 27, and is now requesting more information on services from Allied Waste. They are looking into possibly extending the contract and negotiating costs. “I’ve had some conversations with Allied Waste,” said Johnson. “We are looking into some modifications of the project costs and possibly other components that would benefit the revenue budget. We are hoping to get some better rates (with Allied Waste), and make some other program modifications that would shorten the gap in that $90,000.” The RCC has made recycling easier for the counties. “We’ve tried to eliminate the prices to encourage recycling,” Johnson said. “All of the electronics, except for TVs, are free now. All appliances and white goods with Freon are taken for free now. We don’t have a lot of opportunity to generate dollars in that regard. If you charge a cost, a lot of times you will get less participation in the recycling of items as well.” In 1990, the Solid Waste Reduction, Recovery and Recycling Law was enacted to create new ways to manage waste and encourage reduction, reuse and recycling of Wisconsin’s solid waste. The Recycling Control Commission is a two-county intergovernmental unit which was created to provide recycling and waste management services for residents in Burnett and Washburn counties.

“At this time we have no money,” explained Tom Ricci, who sits on the RCC as a representative of the Washburn County Board of Supervisors. “We can’t sign another contract if we have no way to pay for those services.”

Some of the services provided by the RCC are: • Curbside and drop-off recycling of state required materials. • Recycling of special materials such as appliances, tires, computers, fluorescent bulbs, used oil, oil filters and various battery types. • Planning and coordinating hazardous waste collections for the twocounty area. • Development and dissemination of educational and promotional materials. • Ensuring the marketing of all collected materials. • The writing of grants and reports for applicable programs. The Northwest Regional Planning Commission provides an executive director and staff to undertake the daily functions and activities of the RCC. These staff members not only write grant applications for state funding, but also are always looking for ways to cut expenses for the counties. They will continue to negotiate the current contract with Allied Waste to cut expenses so the counties can survive without the additional $89,113 in funds from the state.

County unemployment rate drops from April

Remains about the same as last year at this time

MADISON – Washburn County’s unemployment rate dropped from 9.4 percent in April to 8.9 percent in May, according to numbers released last week by the Department of Workforce Development. The county’s unemployment rate a year ago was 9.0 percent. Washburn, St Croix, Polk and Burnett counties each saw unemployment rates continue their downward trend since the start of 2011. Locally, Burnett County has seen the biggest decrease in the unemployment rate, dropping 2.2 percent since January. St. Croix County’s unemployment rate dropped to 5.7 percent in May, making it one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state. In Polk County, unemployment has dropped 1 percent since January. Overall in 2011, Wisconsin has added 26,400 private-sector jobs, including 13,100 in manufacturing. - with information from Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development

Governor signs the budget into law

by Shawn Johnson Wisconsin Public Radio GREEN BAY - Gov. Scott Walker has signed Wisconsin’s two-year state budget, calling it a document that makes hard choices to balance the books for the first time in years. The budget Walker signed bears a strong resemblance to the one he introduced to lawmakers months ago. It makes historically large cuts throughout state government, chopping more $800 million from public schools. But Walker said it began to put the state’s fiscal house in order. “For the first time in a long time, we have a budget that is better for the people of this state than the one we inherited.” Walker made 50 vetoes to the budget, eliminating provisions Republican lawmakers tucked in that would have legalized bail bondsmen in Wisconsin and lowered the tax on name-brand chewing tobacco. He used his powerful partial veto to require all public employees to work in their jobs five years before they’re vested in their pensions. He also made it easier for all state agencies to sign no-bid contracts with private firms. Walker focused on the budget’s tax breaks for manufacturers and limits on property taxes. “Middle-class property taxes are the beneficiary of this budget,” said Walker. “This budget includes a property tax freeze that will help thousands of Wisconsin families.” Walker took no questions after the signing. But outside along the street, hundreds of protesters were eager to talk, shouting “shame” at cars as they arrived. Green Bay teacher Eleanor Redue said this budget disregarded the schools and teachers that had made Wisconsin great. “If there’s not the room to be the kind of teacher that you aspire to be, you’re not going to enter the profession, you’re going to choose something that will help you support your family.” Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca issued a statement saying the budget meant the middle class would pay more and get less.

Recall challenger out

by Shawn Johnson Wisconsin Public Radio MADISON -A Republican challenger in one of the upcoming state Senate recall elections has been knocked off the ballot for failing to file enough signatures on his nominating petitions. The Government Accountability Board ruled unanimously that Marinette Republican Assemblyman John Nygren filed only 398 valid nominating signatures, two short of the 400 needed to get on the ballot. Nygren was hoping to challenge Democratic Sen. Dave Hansen. Should the board's action stand, it would still leave Republican Dave VanderLeest on the ballot. GAB Director Kevin Kennedy said normally, candidates submit more signatures. "The board bent over backwards to try and count as many signatures as they could to give effect to all the signers that submitted them," explains Kennedy. "But in the end, the candidate only submitted 424 signatures that the staff counted and after the challenges, he was two short."


Letters to the editor

Should corporations pay more taxes?

Corporations don’t pay taxes. A corporation is a legal entity that defines the joint ownership of assets that are used for the production of goods and services. How can such a legal entity pay taxes? Any money sent to the government by a corporation as taxes is ultimately paid by people. These people are either employees who pay in the form of lower wages and benefits, customers who pay higher prices for the company’s products, or shareholders who receive lower dividends and/or share prices. Just who is paying what part of the tax is a good question. Lately, General Electric has come in for criticism for not paying any corporate income tax. This criticism is not warranted; rather, both GE and the federal govern-

ment should be criticized for crony capitalism, that is, the corporate welfare, subsidies and aid against competitors, that the government extends to GE by politicians in exchange for campaign fund contributions. We should get rid of the corporate income tax so that we know better who is being taxed and so that companies would have more funds to expand their businesses. By advocating high corporate taxes, politicians help foster the illusion that “there really is a free lunch” that is, you really can get something for nothing. Oh, by the way, of every dollar of revenue that health-insurance companies raise they get to keep on average 3 to 4 cents in profit. Oil companies on average get to keep about 8 cents; Apple Com-

puter is keeping over 40 cents. Maybe health-insurance companies should be making higher profits. It would draw more companies into the business and the competition would help lower premiums. No, I did not obtain the company earnings information listed above overhearing a conversation while standing in line at a grocery store. I received the information by reading financial reports produced by auditors and financial researchers. Such information providers can be sued and/or their reputations ruined if they present errant information.

With the decision by the Shell Lake City Council to require everyone to use carted service for garbage and recycling pickup, how do they intend to ensure that seasonal residences are not put at greater risk for the theft when the carts are left out all week (or even several

weeks at a time), obviously indicating that the residence is empty? If, as I have been told, there is no opt-out for this service, seasonal residents such as I have to make a choice between not using a service I still have to pay for, or putting my seasonal residence at risk for a poten-

tial theft. If there is a theft under these circumstances, is the city of Shell Lake going to assume liability?

Saturday I was part of a crowd of hundreds at Siren’s Crooked Lake Park where many talented musicians and Democratic representatives rallied to support Shelly Moore for state Senate. After speaking with Moore personally and listening to her presentation, I’m happy to enthusiastically endorse her. What a dynamo! You can be sure Moore

has a spine of steel and will stand firm for the people of the 10th District. She will not buckle under pressure from a rogue administration gone mad. She will not abandon the children, seniors, workers, small businesses and economy of the district at the order of a powerhungry governor. We have learned the hard way that

paying attention to our government is not an occasional responsibility and that every election counts. Your vote on July 10 for Shelly Moore will help return sanity to Wisconsin government.

The Washburn County Board of Supervisors met Tuesday, June 21. One issue that comes up every 10 years is the possible realignment of districts based on the last census. The county clerk is responsible for evaluating the location of the population, and she drew up a new map that will give each district about the same population. Little change in population and minimal changes were made. There was no change in District 21. This is a tentative plan that will be approved by

the summer conference in Rhinelander. The major topic of discussion concerned the amount of financial aid the counties receive from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Each county receives financial and technical support from the DNR, and they are planning on cutting this support. They requested the counties participate in the decision. The counties opted to reduce statewide the Sustainable Forestry Grant by $78,000. The impact on Washburn County would be minimal. Hopefully, the DNR will agree to this.

Rivard: A slowdown in unemployment

RICE LAKE – Rep. Roger Rivard, RRice Lake, was pleased to see that the May unemployment rates issued by the Department of Workforce Development continue to show the 75th District heading in the right direction. “The 75th District is on the right path,” said Rivard. “Considering all of the global and federal factors that influence our area, I am very pleased that we have been able to continue the downward trend of unemployment. The numbers aren’t as good as I would like to see, but it still means that hundreds of individuals in our area are now employed and can better provide for their families.” Both Barron and Washburn counties saw an unemployment decrease of approximately 0.5 percent from April and decreases from January of 1.4 percent and 1.3 percent respectively. Polk County saw a decrease of only 0.3 percent from April but since January it has seen a 1.0-percent drop. All three counties are below the national average of 9.1 percent. “The policies enacted by myself and my colleagues have made Wisconsin a better place to do business and that has translated into new jobs. I am proud of the work that we have done so far in this session, and though there are many distractions in Madison, my focus has always been on jump-starting our economy so that the men and women of the 75th have the means to take care of themselves and their families. “There is still work to do, and I hope that I can continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to help keep Wisconsin moving in the right direction. I will continue to promote and pass pro-growth measures that will put more folks of the 75th to work.” — from the office of Rep. Rivard

Coins for Cans benefits local food pantries

St. Croix Tribal council not sworn in; Challenges and possible new election


by Gregg Westigard Special to the Register

HERTEL – The new St. Croix Chippewa tribal council, elected June 11, has not taken its oath yet. The tribal election board has heard a series of challenges and appeals but has not officially released the votes or announced the winners of the election. Meetings are going on this week and there is a possibility that a new election will be called. A tribal official has told the Leader that some decision should be released Thursday night or Friday morning. The Leader has obtained a report of the vote totals from someone present for the recount of the votes. Those figures show the election of incumbents Lewis Taylor and Elmer “Jay” Emery, Jr. from Big Sand Lake, incumbent David “Maabin” Merrill from Big Round Lake, and two new council members, Stuart Bearheart, Maple Plain, and Nancy Matrious, Danbury. The two defeated Jeanne Awonohopay and Beverly (Songetay) Benjamin. The tribe does not have a primary and run off election so the winning candidates won with pluralities but not majorities. No candidate received more than 40-percent of the vote. Details on the challenges and appeals have not been released but several sources told the Leader that a tribal judge from Red Cliff will decide on the issues soon

and will determine when and whether the new council will take office. However, the Leader has been told of some concerns. There is a charge that electioneering e-mails were sent from the tribal office during working hours and that two of the e-mails had election judges on the list of receivers. One of those e-mails was apparently from council chair Lewis Taylor. The two messages provided to the Leader were critical of the council members who served from 2007-2009, Hazel Hindsley, Gloria Benjamin, Jerry Lowe, Michael Decorah, and Jay Emery. There are 16 election judges, four from each community. Decorah told the Leader that many of the 16 are closely relayed to some of the candidates and thus not impartial. His list was confirmed by another source. In Danbury, election board members are said to include the brother and son of a candidate. The board members in Maple Plain are said to include a candidate’s sister, brother, and cousin plus the son of that cousin. The election board members in Sand Lake are said to include the daughter and grand-daughter of a candidate’s sister. The Leader has not yet had responses to requests from the tribal council and staff for official information on the election issues and challenges.

by Diane Dryden SHELL LAKE — After retiring from the Air Force in 1998 following 27 years of service, Air Force captain and physician’s assistant Earl Morse was working for the Department of Veterans Affairs in a small clinic is Springfield, Ohio. In conversations with the elderly vets he treated, he realized that many of them would never be able to see the memorial built in honor of their service in 2005 due to financial and physical constraints. Morse was also a private pilot and a member of one of our nation’s largest and best aero clubs, located in Dayton, Ohio. He had an idea to fly veterans out to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorial, free of charge. Hoping to enlist the help of other pilots, he addressed 150 of them asking for their assistance. After Morse spoke, 11 of them stepped forward. In May of 2005, six small planes flew 12 veterans to the memorial and by the end of the first year, 137 veterans were flown to D.C. With World War II veterans dying at a rate of approximately 1,000 per day, Honor Flight Networks were created around the nation to ensure that as many vets as possible are able to see the memorial. Today, there are 110 hubs located throughout the United States and since the program’s inception, 65,000 vets have participated, including a native from Shell Lake, Bob Washkuhn. “I was in Carl Krantz’s office one day – Carl being the Washburn County Veterans service officer – when he mentioned the flight to me and asked me if I was interested in going. He said that it was a one-day event and that everything was completely paid for.” Within a short time, one month to be exact, on May 12, Washkuhn was on a Sun Country breakfast flight out of Duluth, Minn., headed for a remarkable day in D.C. along with other veterans. “I had been there twice before, once as a chaperone to a 4-H group and the second time as a temporary lobbyist, but this time was very different. When we arrived at Reagan National Airport midmorning there was a large group of people there who greeted us with clapping, and hand-shaking and big smiles. There was a band playing and we also got a fire department water salute. The crowd included the state police and local police, locals including children and the mayor of D.C. It was very moving.” Washkuhn and his group’s bus were given a police escort for a tour of the monuments including the Vietnam Wall and the Korean Memorial. They visited the Arlington National Cemetery and saw the monument of The Raising of the Flag monument at Iwo Jima. Then they arrived at the impressive World War II monument. This site was begun when Congress au-

thorized the American Battle Monuments Commission to establish the World War II Memorial in D.C. back in 1993. This site was mostly funded by private donations and it was begun in 2001 and dedicated in 2004. The memorial sits strategically between the Lincoln Memorial to the west and the Washington Memorial to the east reflecting the importance of World War II in preserving and internationalizing democratic ideals won under George Washington and defended under Abraham Lincoln. The monument itself is elliptical, each rounded end sporting a flat upright pillar representing the roll call of the nations; the individual states plus the territories and the District of Columbia based in order of when they entered the Union. On one long side there is a wall of 4,000 gold stars representing the 400,000 men and women who gave their lives for their country. Washkuhn and another veteran had their own guardian who took care of their every move and also took lots of pictures for Washkuhn who is having them put onto a disk for posterity. By 11 p.m. that same night, their flight touched down in Duluth again, also to a huge crowd of people cheering them home. “This was the chance of a lifetime,” he says. “I recommend that everyone go to see this newest monument run by the National Park System, but especially World War II vets.” Washkuhn, who joined the Army at 18, returned briefly to Shell Lake for employment at the famous Shell Lake Boat Factory. But when a friend told him about a

Things that might disappear in our lifetime

We will be celebrating the United States’ 235th birthday with a three-day weekend. Area towns have events planned to celebrate this Independence Day holiday, including Shell Lake. Saturday will be the fine arts festival in the park as well as the pie and ice-cream social at the historical museum. July 3 the city will come alive with the Suzanne Lions cookout, food by other vendors, the street dance and the exJohnson plosive fireworks. Several things have changed over the course of our nation’s history. The telegraph gave way to the telephone, where we’ve seen party lines go private. The Pony Express blazed the trail for correspondence to travel and has long since run its course. Trains no longer make whistle stops in this community and there is no longer local bus service to the Twin Cities or Eau Claire. Newspapers have gone from very few black and white photos to full color and also

BEYOND the Office DOOR

The newest Washington, D.C., memorial salutes each state and territory that participated in the European Theatre. Photos submitted pipefitting-manufacturing job in Milwaukee, he moved and worked there for 19 years. But like many others, his heart was is Shell Lake and upon returning he and his wife ran the Variety Store in town and then Washkuhn started his employment with the post office in Spooner eventually becoming postmaster in Shell Lake. He looks back at his service time, between 1944 and 1947, with pride. “I remember when we got the news that FDR had died while we were riding on the back of a tank and I also remember that my unit, the 9th Armored Division, was the first one to cross the Rhine River using the Remagen bridge. We were a unit of tanks and half-tracks and the Germans had been shooting at everyone who tried to cross the bridge. We were able to cross, allowing us to help the push to get them further east. Our division, along with the 1st and 3rd Army Division, was the first and pretty much the last ones to cross because the bridge was destroyed the next day. Gen. D.D. Eisenhower called it a major accomplishment and that ‘the bridge was worth its weight in gold.’” During his years in service, Washkuhn also received the Bronze Star but does not like to talk about how he got it. He was just another one of those hardworking farm boys who was gung-ho and unafraid to join the war, but it wasn’t until he saw the crowds at both airports thanking them for their service that it all came full circle. A second-grader named Kendall from the Horace May Elementary School in Bemidji, Minn., wrote a letter he received which said in a child’s scrawl, “Dear Veteran. I am very proud

e-papers. With search engines via the Internet are encyclopedias a thing of the past, too? Gene Romsos, Sarona, sent me an e-mail by an unknown writer titled, Nine Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime. On the list were the post office, the check, the newspaper, the book, the landline telephone, music, television, things we own and privacy. The person making the list stated that the post office would become a thing of the past, as the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive will be wiped out because of other means of delivery, which includes e-mail. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. The younger generation doesn’t seem to subscribe to the delivered print edition of a newspaper. Many papers, including the Register, are available as e-papers for a fee. If a person chooses, they can browse a bookstore online and read a review chapter before buying a book. “Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can’t wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you’re holding a gadget instead of a book,” commented the author of the list of things to disappear. If you live in an area that has good cell phone reception, you may not need a landline telephone anymore. The music industry is losing revenue because of ille-

I hope you enjoy your flight to Washington, D.C.” The top half of the standard wide-ruled sheet had a detailed drawing of the American flag amongst colorful fireworks flying over a green lawn and it said everything that needed to be said, we are proud of all our veterans and hope more take advantage of this incredible trip.

gal downloading. According to the e-mail Gene sent, revenues to the TV networks are down as people are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. Primetime shows have degenerated and commercials run about every four minutes and 30 seconds. Our computers have a hard drive where we store pictures, music, movies and documents. The software is on a CD or DVD, and we can always reinstall it if we need to. In the future, computer software will have cloud services. The Internet will be built into the operating system. If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud. You might pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider. In this virtual world, you can access your music, books, or whatever from any laptop or handheld device. The question is will you actually own any of this stuff? There are cameras on the street, in buildings, and built into your computer and cell phone. Your spending habits are recorded, therefore, what is privacy? There have been a lot of changes in our country since its birth. One of the closing sentences on the list of disappearing things was, “All we will have left that can’t be changed are memories.”

Dewey Country


great-granddaughter, played the accordion. She played “How Great Thou Art,” “Amazing Grace” and “You Are My Sunshine.” Strawberry patches are putting out those delicious strawberries right and left and they are big and juicy and nice and sweet. So get out and enjoy the first fruit of the season here in God’s Country. Wednesday, I took eight pails of strawberries to Penny and Jeff Ladd’s to help Penny freeze them. Of course, those three munchkins raided a bunch and they were going yummy, yummy every time they got a bite. I had a really good laugh at those three munchkins, Rem, Ry and Ree, as their mom and dad got them each a baby chick. Those three little ones carry them around, feeding them worms, and giving those little chicks a wagon ride down the Ladds big hill. So far all are OK, but it sure is cute to watch them take those little chicks in the wagon going down the hill. Such wonderful adventures those three little R’s have. Well! Well! Yes, another car took a plunge into Bashaw Lake recently. Yah, you go down Bashaw Lake Road and down a long hill and into the lake. All got out safe and sound. It’s about eight or nine now taking a cold plunge into Bashaw Lake. This past week Diane Hulleman’s daughter, Nancy Murray, brought out her little 10-month-old grandson, James Depoister from Rice Lake, to spend time with Diane. Colleen Jensen and Izzy, Jacker Perlt and Diane Hulleman enjoyed picking wonderful strawberries and freezing some and Sunday Diane was busy making freezer jam out of those delicious strawberries. Saturday night, Jackie and Diane enjoyed going to the movies. My little Rory is such a character you wouldn’t believe it! What’s he up to now? Well, when I put on hand lotion he always has to smell it. This has become a tradition for us. Well, when I take him for walks a number of times a day. I pick some wildflowers to bring home for the table. Of course, he likes to smell them too. Last Monday, I potted plants of course with Rory’s help as he always wants to smell the flowers. Well now, that I have those potted flowers along the front of my house he comes along sniffing those plants of flowers. At first, he chewed on a flower, but I told him “No, No!” and so now he just smells them. It’s something he does whenever he’s outside. I wonder what he would do if I put a little hand lotion on those flowers? Joanne Schade from the Twin Cities

was up on Saturday to visit her sister, Betty Meister, and the two girls mom, Catherine Schumaker. The next Town of Dewey monthly board meeting is July 5, 8 p.m., at the Dewey Town Hall. Everyone welcome. Are we going to have knee-high corn by July 4? Well that corn is coming along pretty good now and with a shot of hot weather it should make more than kneehigh. It’s acoming. Bernard and Sandy Redding took in the Burnett Dairy Breakfast at the Crosbys on June 18. Sandy said it was really nice. For Father’s Day, Sandy took her honey to the Prime to help her honey celebrate Father’s Day. Recently, Sandy went for a doctor checkup at Luther Midelfort Mayo in Eau Claire. They ended up doing extra tests due to a problem, but everything is OK. Sandy says she’s feeling pretty good once again. On the way home from Eau Claire, an animal (they think a deer) came out of nowhere and plowed into the passenger side of their Rav 4 Toyota causing a lot of damage. Sandy says they see bears all over from their yard to one on H and two smaller bears. Allene Peterson called for a visit and she tells me she’s busy as a bee. She works at the library they have in Ruby’s Pantry and helps out other places. She’s a busy gal! Allene and a friend took in the 10th year of celebration of the tornado that came through our township June 21, 2001. Allene remarked they had a delicious dinner for all who came, plus much more. The last few years, we find Allene Peterson going to Shell Lake’s Primary School to help the first-graders of Mrs. Millers class, and the kindergarten of Mrs. Tiffany’s class to plant flowers in each little one’s cup. This year they planted marigolds. I believe these little ones took them home to their moms for Mother’s Day. What a thoughtful thing Allene did and yes they remember her from last year and very excited to have her come back and teach them how to make those little marigold seeds grow. I hear we have a wedding coming up pretty soon but you’ll have to wait until they announce it. It’s always exciting with a new bride and groom, and it’s excitng to have those little precious babies to write about – my two favorite subjects. Coming up July 1 through July 4, take in Clover Meadow Winery’s wine tasting of 15 organic wines they make. Come at noon until 9 p.m. and bring along a picnic lunch for the family. Lemonade and pop along with water will be furnished along with wine tasting. This is a familyowned winery with Patrick and Laura

Walters, Ryan and James, and Alexia Walters and Jason Gammor. Looking around our countryside, isn’t it pretty to look at all the different greens we see? Yes and those wildflowers are really pretty too, showing off their beauty. Saturday, Gretchen Best drove to pick up her mom, Lillian Strege, of Luck and Carolyn Darick and they drove to Robbinsdale, Minn., to a wedding shower for a relative. Gretch said they had a really nice time together. Taking with Loretta VanSelus, she tells us that a pastor and a youth pastor came up from Wheeler to Danbury at the Church of the Nazarene to serve youth groups performing in music and drama. They came last Friday and have been performing for the people and they will have Bible school Monday through Thursday, and will be on the road on Thursday or Friday when they are done. Butch and Loretta VanSelus have been going over to the musical and drama they put on and enjoy it. News from the Fjelstad Palace finds Queen Kris enjoyed lunch at Adventures in Siren along with five other Red Hat ladies. Tuesday, Bob visited with Elmer Talbert and Greg Dorweiler. Wednesday, Bob and Kris met a bus in Shell Lake taking them to the St. Croix Casino – Danbury, where they enjoyed the seafood buffet. Thursday, Bob’s sister, Jackie, and her honey, Dave Cochrane from Florida, came to visit Bob and Kris and later going to Hayward for seeing other relatives. Jim Toll also visited with Bob. Friday, Marv Knoop visited with Bob and Kris along with Greg Dorweiler. Saturday, Bob visited with Jim and Trish Patten, Jeff Larson also visited with the Fjelstads. Coming to Bob and Kris’ on Saturday were Phil and Rose Deede from Eau Claire who enjoyed pontooning and lots of good food along with good times. Sunday Chad and Annika Hanson visited with Bob and Kris. Saturday, Bob Lawrence visited with Bob also. The recall election is set for July 12 at the Dewey Town Hall. Cecil and Evelyn Melton enjoyed their family and fellowship at their home Sunday with potluck.

Crops are really growing since they got moisture. A couple of days this past week it was rainy and cold, and having the fireplace on really felt good. It was only 49 degrees here on Thursday morning. It looks like most corn will be knee-high by the Fourth of July though! Where did June go? There’s so much going on in this busy world! Time flies fast! Gayle Chowaniak spent three weeks at her place in Missouri recently and now has a new pet, a cat named Casey, whom she adores, that she brought home with her. She said the women’s Getaway traveling horseshoe team. of which she is captain, is in first place at this time. Dan and Heather Hipplinger and kids took in Hungry Hollow Steam Engine Days in Barron on Sunday and it was also their 12th wedding anniversary. Belated wishes. Thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery is wished for Janet Single as she is recovering from a total hip replacement she had last Monday at the hospital in Rice Lake. The Frey boys and their gals, Tim and Alicia, Tony and Kelly and Jim and Lynn, and Dave and Kelly Stoner and Joe Elliott spent three days last weekend at Greenwood at the Abate Summer Hummer, a motorcycle get-together. This past weekend they camped at their place on Little Ripley. Jan Rath and Mavis Schlapper went to the White Tail Ridge Campground for their country music, “Much Wanted” on Saturday and celebrated Mavis’ birthday early. Sunday Jan and her friend stopped and visited her again. Mavis is expecting son Dean, from Austin, Texas,

on Thursday, here for the Fourth of July. The Al Loews had their two grandchildren, Andrew and Kaitlyn from Menomonie for a few days to be with their cousin Christina from Illinois before she went back. They enjoyed fishing. Coffee visitors at my house during the week were Mary Krantz, Bev Helmer, Elaine Ryan and Mavis Schlapper. Grandson Duane Swanson from Menomonie was up on Tuesday night. Roger F. brought their little granddaughters Autumn and Alexis over to visit me while Casey mowed my yard. They are now 2-1/2 and really cute. Grandson Brady Marshall had some supper and visited me Thursday evening. Wednesday evening, grandnephew Allan Furchtenicht and wife Eva from Sagne, Norway and Madison visited and had a tour of the farm. I hadn’t seen Allan for 20 years and never met his wife. They were also going to visit Great-Uncle Gene Anderson, at Earl and to go to the Earl Cemetery and drive around there at the old Furchtenicht and Anderson homesteads of his greatgrandparents. Allan had been interested in family history and has done a lot of research here and in Germany and has it on a Web site. Had a great evening of visiting. Mary Marshall went with me when I had my cataract surgery Wednesday morning and again the next day for follow-up. There sure is a lot of drops to put in, five different kinds, three or four times a day. Elfreda West and I attended the funeral for Don O’Dash at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Rice Lake Friday. I enjoyed seeing their daughter, Mary Swanson of

California. She’s an ex-sister-in-law of my daughter, Cindy. Sympathy is extended to the family. Sunday, Mary Krantz and I attended church services at Anah, where we went as kids. Then we visited at Lois Titan’s at her home in Springbrook. She is there for the summer from Louisville, Ky. Sure enjoyed reminiscing over coffee there. Friday evening, Jessie and Ryan Furchtenicht hosted a birthday party for their kids, Jillian, who turned 5, and Jaxson, turning 3, with their grand- and great-grandparents and some aunts and uncles attending. Jessie served so much nice food and special cakes. Lots of bears are reported to have been seen in our area; also deer and their cute little fawns. The grass along roadsides is tall, so one’s really got to watch when driving. Happy birthday wishes to Randy Zimmerman and Tony Johnson July 1, Jayne Thompson, Todd Keup and Alicka Campbell on July 2, Ardeane Summerfield and Diane Wood, July 4, Nancy Furchtenicht on July 5, Jay Okonek, Suzie Johnson, LaVerne Modrow, Carrie Madison and Betty Kuntz on July 6.

Butterfly Corner

June 21 - The Monarch Butterfly Habitat had a couple of unexpected visitors. A young mother cat and her dark-coated tortoiseshell, blue-eyed, kitten came to investigate. I sat on a memory bench and softly talked to them. The felines let me pet them so I knew they were not strangers to humans. Hopefully they have a home nearby. I was waiting for the Hayward Garden Club to arrive. Mind you it was raining. The best surprise was a monarch caterpillar seen on common milkweed. The first arrival put on rain gear and enjoyed peppermint water made from the Shell Lake artesian well water and organic herbs grown in Minong. An estimated 15 to 20 other gardeners arrived. We slouched through area two. Native phlox and basket flower were blooming. Naturally the caterpillar had enough sense to hide during the rain so by the time gardeners arrived the caterpillar was no longer visible. June 22 - Brooklyn Derrickson greeted me when I arrived at Happy Tonics Visitors Center in Minong. She said, “You are late. I have been waiting for you all day.” She was excited to show me her butterfly tree house that is a temporary home to monarch caterpillars on fresh-cut common milkweed plants. We saw two caterpillars. June 23, 1 p.m. - National Bee Count! It is an overcast and rainy day in Washburn County, June 23. Isolated showers, partly cloudy, high 58°F, low 50°F, humidity 60 percent, wind 13 mph. The local bee count was rained out. Sue Menzel, Hayward, came to Shell Lake dressed in rain gear to assist with the project but because of rain, I took her to lunch instead. Happy Tonics has been coordinating the National Bee Count on Facebook throughout National

Pollinator Week. Leslye Schoenhuth, University of Minnesota - Minneapolis said, “Rained this morning. Breezy and 60 degrees. I would have stayed in myself if I were a bee.” Linda Mae Gregory, Lebec, Calif., wrote, “Sunny, no clouds, 87 degrees. Full sun, garden with lavender and rock roses, slight breeze … went 30 minutes with only two bees ... native honeybees. “Suzanne Patles, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, said, “I saw two bees. It was sunny here, but I notice that the population of bees is gradually increasing because we are actually starting to see them again. We were ransacked a few years ago by hornets, they were everywhere and the bees were nowhere to be found but deep in the woods.” Cindy Dyer, Alexandria, Va., stated, “I was in my garden this morning, deadheading rose campion plants. I counted 19 bumblebees on my Monarda, white coneflower, purple coneflowers and Liatris. That was this morning at about 9:45 a.m.” Barbara Price, Pacific Northwest, wrote, “I spent time in the garden yesterday afternoon. We are unseasonably cool here with temperatures only reaching highs in the 60s. I only found one bee in my gardens. This, to me, is very sad. I live on a large corner lot and have lilacs, irises, roses, lilies, hibiscus, peonies, and various other bulbs and perennials in my expansive gardens as well as an apple tree, plum tree and blueberry bush. I should be loaded with bees, but I only found one. I also have no butterflies. Stephanie Ryall, Saratoga Springs, N.Y., says, “I went out several times in the rain, but to no bees. It poured on and off for most of the day. We normally have an abundance of bees.” Mary Ann Bittle, Worland, Mo., wrote,

2:30 p.m. - 3 p.m. Went 15 minutes in my garden, another 15 minutes in my front yard. Partly cloudy, 89 degrees F, winds from the SSE about 10 m.p.h., humid. Nine total honeybees that stopped (two or three more that didn’t), two bumblebees, one wood bee. Food sources/stopping spots included: Okra flower, radish flowers, a rose, clover flowers, sunflowers. Some (two or three) wandered through without stopping. Worth noting - I had several dragonflies stopping at same sources, plus some wildflowers, and some wasps doing the same. I use no poisons or insect deterrents (other than natural, organic ones such as marigolds or the like.) And Anne Dunn, Crystal Lake, said, “We were cold and rainy so no count by Crystal Lake Crones. June 24 - Joan Quenan, Jim VanMoorleham and staff hiked out to the DNR and Happy Tonics Wild Butterfly Habitat. We placed plant identification stakes near native plants that are in season now. We plan once-a-month trips out to this site to continue monitoring projects. Thank you, Joan and Jim. June 25, 9 a.m. - Vitality Village Fundraising Bike Ride around Shell Lake for Happy Tonics.

Hunters, volunteers assist DNR to count bears

Study last done in 2006, will take place every five years

by Marty Seeger Special to the Register POLK COUNTY – A study that estimates the population of black bears in Wisconsin is nearing completion in the northern half of the state, including Polk, Burnett and 29 other counties. The spring portion of the study is just the first step in determining the general population estimate in the state as hunters this fall will be expected to provide a rib sample if they harvest a black bear. The study enlisted several volunteers who helped local wildlife biologists with placing small wooden boxes packed with bait on trees roughly 7 to 8 feet off the ground. The boxes included nine antibiotic pills containing tetracycline, which were packed into a gooey mixture of peanut butter and marshmallows, which can be an irresistible treat to bears, especially in the spring. The boxes are then sprayed with liquid smoke to help increase the chances of luring in a bear. The DNR hopes a bear will climb up the tree, leaving distinct markings to further asses that a bear visited the bait site, and tear open the bait box, which is securely shut and tacked high into a soft-barked tree. They then hope the bear eats the bait, along with the tetracycline pills. The pills are harmless to the bears, but leave a distinct marking on their bone tissue, which can only be seen through a microscope. Baits were left in the woods for about three weeks before being removed near the end of May, but some baits were left out a bit longer due to the unseasonably late spring weather.

Each bait box contains nine tetracycline pills packed together with an irresistable coating of peanut butter and marshmallows. If a bear ingests the tetracycline, it leaves a distinct marking on the bear’s bone tissue. – Photo by Marty Seeger

“We had a heck of a time with all the rain. It washed liquid smoke off boxes.

Washed away evidence because of rain,” said Polk County wildlife biologist, Michelle Carlisle, who is still waiting for some of the data sheets from volunteers who helped with the study. A total of 108 bait boxes were strategically placed in Polk County, which perfectly formed a gridlike pattern when shown on a map. Another 102 boxes were placed in Burnett County, but the number of baits varied in each county based on the size of the area.

“Theoretically, one bear will get one bait versus one bear getting five baits by using this system, because they’re approximately three miles apart,” Carlisle explained. Some areas of Polk County had significantly better bear habitat than others, but DNR staff and volunteers were able to make it work. The first study of its kind, which many refer to as “mark and recapture,” was done in 2006 and will continue to take place every five years according to the DNR’s bear management plan. During the 2006 study, it was found that the bear population was nearly double what was originally thought. As a result, more hunting permits were issued, and the bear harvest increased, but don’t expect the study from this spring to impact upcoming bear hunting seasons immediately. The final results aren’t expected until 2013. The next step in determining the population estimate will be this fall during the “recapture” portion of the study. Hunters who are fortunate enough to harvest a black bear during the fall of 2011 or during the 2012 season will be asked to submit a rib sample as they did during the 2006 and 2007 fall hunting seasons. According to bear research scientist Dave MacFarland, the tetracycline “mark” will remain visible in a bear’s bone tissue for up to three or four years, “until the calcium in the bone is replaced,” MacFarland said. Assisting with the study, along with the many volunteers and landowners, was the Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association, who built and supplied the bait boxes. The general hunting population also assisted with the efforts even though they may not have been involved directly. “This study is funded through segregated fees originating from the sale of hunting licenses,” MacFarland noted.

Several law changes coming for Wisconsin bear hunters

Many take effect this weekend

MADISON – Changes are coming this week for Wisconsin bear hunters under legislation signed into law this month by Gov. Scott Walker. More dog-training opportunities and a license-free weekend are among the changes to take effect Saturday, July 2. Bear hunters and dog trainers should note the new law is not included in the current bear-hunting rules pamphlet printed in December 2010. However, bear hunters should review the changes on the hunting and trapping regulations page of the DNR Web site.

The major changes include:

• Dog training: One big change increases the opportunity to train dogs to track or to trail bear. The statewide bear dog training period remains July 1 through Aug. 31. The new law allows trainers to work with their dogs in bearhunting zones A, B and D when the season is open for hunting bear with dogs. This combined training, hunting period will be from Sept. 7 through Oct. 4.

• License-free weekend: Normally, a Class B bear license has been needed to participate in bear dog training or placing bait for bear hunting and dog training. The new law allows individuals to participate in these activities on one weekend each year without the need for a Class B bear license. This free weekend will be the third Saturday and the following Sunday

of August each year. This year the free weekend will be Aug. 20 and 21. All participants must still comply with all other rules that regulate these activities.

• No license for under 16: Previously, youth under age 12 could participate in activities requiring a Class B bear license without the need to purchase or hold a license. This license exemption now includes those under age 16. The activities authorized by a Class B bear license have included allowing the license holder to place bait for bear, train dogs to track or trail bear and assist a Class A bear-license holder locate bear for the Class A bear-license holder to harvest.

• Do more with Class B: The Class B bear-license authority has been expanded to allow the holder of the license and anyone age 10-15, who do not need a Class B bear license, to shoot a bear in one specific situation. If a bear has been shot, but not killed, by a Class A bear-license holder and the killing of the bear is necessary to protect human safety, a Class B bear-license holder may shoot to kill the bear. Both the Class A and B license holders must be a member of the same hunting party and both present at the point of kill. A bear-license holder must ensure the Class A bear-license holder immediately attach their validated bear-carcass tag to the bear. While youth under age 10 can participate in bear dog training and bear baiting, and assisting a Class A bear-license holder in locating a bear, they may not possess a firearm for hunting or shoot a bear.

• Mentorship and adult supervision rules apply: Youth ages 10-11 must obey all the Hunting Mentorship Program requirements. All youth ages 12-13 and ages 14-15 who have not completed hunter education must be within visual and voice contact of a parent or adult guardian to possess a firearm for hunting or to shoot a bear.

• Back tag changes: For Class A bear licensees – your back-tag is required to be attached to the center of your outermost layer of clothing above the waist where it

is clearly visible while hunting bear. However, Class A hunters do not need to wear their back tags when not hunting bear or when only placing bait or training dogs to track or trail bear. Class B bear license holders will no longer be required to wear a back tag during any activity authorized by his license. Class B bear licenses sold after July 1 will no longer include a backtag. Class B bear back tags issued before July 2011 will serve as the person’s license and must be kept and carried when participating in any activities requiring the license. – from the DNR

Fish kills expected in northwestern Wisconsin lakes

SPOONER – Biologists say conditions are ripe for fish disease outbreaks and fish kills on lakes in Polk, Barron, Washburn and Burnett counties during the next few weeks. Reports of small fish kills on various Polk County lakes started coming in this past week, officials said. The cause is a bacterium called Columnaris, which infects fish species only and is not a risk to humans. “The bacteria are most prevalent in our lakes after water temperatures reach 65 to 70 degrees from late May to late June,” said Jamison Wendel, a fisheries biologist with the state Department of Natural Resources. Bluegill, crappies, yellow perch and bullheads – already stressed from seasonal spawning activities – are most affected by the disease. Cold or

fluctuating water temperatures during spawning can compound spawning stress and weaken immune systems. The bacteria erode the skin on infected fish causing leakage of bodily fluids and rapid death. Although Columnaris can appear to produce large-scale fish losses in a matter of several days it usually does not have a catastrophic impact on overall fish populations, biologists said. If anglers or landowners in Polk, Barron, Washburn and Burnett counties have additional questions or see large numbers of other dead fish like carp, largemouth bass, muskie or walleye, they can contact DNR fisheries biologist Jamison Wendel at 715-635-4095 or fisheries team supervisor Terry Margenau at 715-635-4162. – from the DNR

One-eyed Jack/from page 2 of the need to remove one of his eyes. All these dogs and cats have found a refuge at the Washburn County Humane Society in Spooner thanks to Penny Dunn, the head of the organization, along with Vicky Clepper and Matt Richter completing the staff who take charge of these critters. They are the ones who have to make the hard decisions. “I was told 10 years ago when I first started,” states Dunn, “that the most important part of running the shelter was education. That confused me because I thought the most important part of the job was loving the animals, but through the years I began to understand. You have to know which animals to save and which to let go to sleep. We get so many pitiful animals in the course of a year that your heart breaks every time one comes in. Some are strays, some are surrenders and some come as a result of neglect and abuse cases which often involve law enforcement. You also have to be able to talk to people earnestly about spaying and neutering their pets, especially the cats. “One of our most heartbreaking cases comes quickly to mind – Chester. He came in 2002, a pure German shepherd that had been abused most of his life. He was an old dog and, if we didn’t know his horrible past, we would have thought that he had experienced many happy years with his owner. Even though his story was pitiful, he was the most loving dog we ever had here. During the year and a half that we had him, before he became too arthritic to function and we had to euthanize him, bringing us to tears for days, he was the official shelter greeter. He went to the local schools to help teach about the awful conditions animals live in, the puppy mills. He loved and ‘dog tested’ many cats and he especially loved the kittens and he kept many temperamental puppies and young, feisty male dogs in line. He taught us all that no matter how hard life has been, or how neglected or cruelly you’ve been treated, there is still love for those who truly love you back. “Captain Jack, a 6-month-old puppy

Memphis, an adorable rottweiler/ shepherd mix, had been accidentally stepped on by his owner and he needed a temporary pin in his leg. He thought the blow-up collar he was required to wear until his wound healed was a pillow to be used whenever he was sleepy.

was found on Hwy. 70 with an injured front leg. After a visit to the Spooner Vet Clinic, it was determined that the leg would need to be amputated. We picked up the bill and within two weeks, thankfully, generous donors covered the surgery costs for us.” Max was purchased from on Craigslist, and when the new owners picked him up, they found he had an injured back leg. They called the shelter because their ID tags were on his collar. They said they loved the dog but were unsure what was wrong and what to do. After looking up the tag number they found the tag was given to a 5-year-old pug that had been adopted from their shelter seven months earlier. Max was brought back to the shelter so he could be examined by a veterinarian. After an exam and X-rays, it was confirmed that he was most likely hit by a car several weeks earlier. He had five fractures in his pelvis and a dislocated hip. The next day Max had his back right leg amputated. He was finally free of the unrelenting and severe pain he had been in since the accident. Max recently went back to the

people who rescued him off Craigslist and he is very happy, fully functioning three-legged dog now. “Memphis came to us because his owner had accidently stepped on his leg when he was just a puppy and the vets were able to save the leg by inserting a pin into it for four weeks to ensure it would heal properly. He is fully healed now and awaiting adoption.” Dogs, cats, disabled, injured, neglected, all are welcome at the shelter. “We hate to see these animals come in because each one breaks our hearts. Once the animals have their surgeries and have their recovery time, they are put up for adoption. It’s just amazing that there are so many people that are ready to give them all the love they need to recover, both emotionally and physically.” Broken jaws, dental work, amputations, these are just everyday occurrences at the shelter along with supplying the needs of all the other animals. There are 12 spots for dogs, with one extra left open for emergency cases, and 10 spots for cats and currently the shelter is full. “We are so grateful that DNR employees have been so faithful, daily walking our dogs during their lunchtime. They are so wonderful. As you can see, it’s the volunteers that make all the difference to our operation. And it’s also those loving

and caring people that adopt an animal. The cost to adopt a dog is $125 and it is $95 for cats. Included in this fee is the spaying or neutering, all their shots and deworming. Most vets would charge considerably more for the service for a privately owned animal, so really the public is getting a bargain.” Due to ads in Pet Finder, dogs and cats from the shelter have been adopted from as far away as Washington state, California, Canada, Missouri and Michigan and a background check was done on each prospective owner to assure the animal would go to a good home. The unofficial motto of the shelter is that they are there first for the animals and they are there secondly for the people who adopt them. Volunteers are always needed and children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult. The work might involve such glamorous things as sweeping or vacuuming, washing windows and around door handles or even picking up you-know-what in the fenced yards. It also involves brushing the animals, playing with the cats and possibly washing pet dishes and doing the animal’s laundry so they will have nice, clean blankets on which to lie. They also have several specific fund requests as well as the general one for the Washburn County Area Humane Society and they are: The Thomas Fund, named after a special cat for the spaying and neutering of other cats. The building fund. The general spay and neutering of both dogs and cats fund and of course, the Chester Fund to tend animals who had unbelievably cruel backgrounds. The shelter’s address is 1400 Cottonwood Ave. in Spooner’s industrial district west of the fairgrounds.

Good morning. It’s Monday morning and cloudy skies. I hope it gets better by the weekend so people who are going to celebrate will be able to picnic or whatever. The Brewers beat the Twins over the weekend on their home field. Had a daughter, Sue and Larry Winner, who took in the game Saturday night and again on Sunday noon with friends Jan and Mark Cummings, of Superior, and their daughter Nicole, of Chicago, joined them. They had a long ride home after the game. Son Tim, and Sue were also there with their daughter Megan and boyfriend Dustin. Talking to Jude Bolterman, she had talked with daughter Amy in Minot, N.D. I guess she had to move because of high water. I think the river is beginning to recede if they don’t get more rain. Our prayers go out to them. Arlys Santiago met a few friends at Diane Erickson’s for an evening of singing and visiting. It’s a potluck supper and they call themselves the Song Circle. I guess they meet once a month. Lillian Ullom had a spaghetti supper at Florence Carlson’s Saturday night. Included were Margaret Jones, Frank Mortenson, Florence’s son Ronnie, of California, and his son of St. Paul, Minn. On Saturday morning, Lillian attended

a wedding shower at Jessica and Ryan Furchtenichts. Last Friday evening, we were treated to music by Tom Dahlstrom and Dr. Goellner at our Happy Hour. We had a good crowd and several visitors. Sue Weathers’ son Michael, who is visiting from out west, joined us too. Last Thursday, Helen V. Pederson attended her 70th high school class reunion at the senior center in Cumberland. We were a class of 80 in 1940 but we have lost several classmates, some in the service. It was good to see our old friends again and we’re going to get together monthly at the Tower House. Louie and Phillomena (Zappa) Degidio, now deceased, remodeled that old house and opened it up as the Tower House. They were both in our class. Sue Winner of Superior-Duluth came down to take Helen to Cumberland. Later on Thursday, Sue and I went to Terraceview to see Arvid and Helen Pederson. We saw Evelyne Olson there also which was good as we don’t get to see her very often. Lawrence and Clarice Flach and Arnold Flach of Cumberland visited with Roger and Mavis Flach last week. Despite inflation, a penny for most people’s thoughts is still a fair price.

Is the first day of summer still June 21? It really felt more like the middle of October. We really need some nice warm, sunny weather around here. The garden is green enough, but the flowers and vegetables don’t seem to be growing very fast. What a crazy year for weather this has been!! Speaking of the 21st, it sounds as though Geri Pittman really enjoyed her birthday this year. Dorothy Orth, Shirley Overvig and Ruth Grover stopped by her house with flowers (from Ruth’s garden) and a carrot cake that Shirley made to help her celebrate. Geri’s granddaughter, Erica, was there at the time, and when Erica’s mom came to pick her up, she was so excited about the “beautiful ladies” who came to celebrate her grandma’s birthday. Erica is just a sweetheart – and she has the most beautiful curly hair. I had a chance to chat with her at her grandma’s house on Wednesday, and she showed me all the pretty horses and Barbie-type dolls that she plays with. Erica has been going half days to a class at Cumberland Elementary to get ready for kindergarden in the fall. She said that she really likes school, and that she thinks her new teacher is very nice. Barronett Lutheran council meeting, which is usually held on the first Sunday of the month, has been postponed until the second Sunday because of the Fourth of July weekend. So, if you are a council

member, please keep that in mind. Judy Norton, Elmer Anderson and I were pleasantly surprised on Sunday morning when the congregation sang “Happy Birthday” to us. Judy’s was a little earlier in June, and Elmer’s and mine are on June 28. This year I’m celebrating the 18th anniversary of my 50th birthday. The only reason I can bear to go on, knowing that I’m ancient, is that I know that Bill Gill will always be older than I am. Gives me a reason to drag my old self around every day. Bill called last week on his way to the Polk County dairy breakfast at Garry and Beth Crosby’s farm. He said that it was pretty crowded even though the weather was terrible. You probably wouldn’t remember this, but it rained. Hard to believe, isn’t it? Like we haven’t had enough rain for one season. I wanted to go to the breakfast, but I had such a terrible cold that Suzy Lehmann said she wouldn’t allow me to spread my germs around. Darn it, I do like to share. The Thomas St. Angelo Library in Cumberland hosted a memorial gathering on Sunday to commemorate the life of Tom Tom the circus elephant who drowned in Cumberland on June 24, 1911, a hundred years ago. Of course the theme of the gettogether was the circus, and naturally they needed a clown, so, who better to ask than our own clown, Sharai Hefty. She was Bubbles the Clown, and had way too

Friendship Commons

Our raised beds are producing. We had some radishes! Since we have someone to water the plants, they are doing well. Jim is going to put together the bench that was donated to the center. That will further enhance our garden. The book club met Friday, June 24. We discussed the book “Summer Cottage,” by Evelyn Safeblade. We really enjoyed it. The next book, “Pathways,” is also written by Safeblade. We won’t have quilting this Wednesday, June 29, but we will have Wii bowling at 10 a.m. this week. We will find another time or day. Monday is the general meeting at 4 p.m., with potluck to

follow at about 5 or 5:30 p.m. I apologize to the Cribbage players for not finding their scores until they got old. We had fun at Smear on Tuesday night. We need more players. We still play Rummikubs on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. We played Bingo Sunday here at the apartments. This coming weekend my family has the annual picnic. This year it’s at my son Bob’s home on Big Devils Lake Road. I had a mishap yesterday. I fell and broke my wrist, so am sporting a cast. Be downright silly every once in a while.

much fun being silly. There was a young lady playing fiddle, and Bubbles couldn’t resist dancing to her music. There were several children who joined her in her dance, and she even roped Phil Flottom into a dance with her. Bubbles gave the kids clown bags that had lollipops in them, and she said that, during a skit, she also had three suckers (Damian, Phil and Tom) on the line. Guess you would have had to be there to get that. She said that everyone had a great time and that the library really knows how to put on a fun party. Al Strubb traveled from California this past week to visit with friends and relatives. He stopped in North Dakota to visit with his sister, Diddie, before coming to Wisconsin. Al’s daughter, Judy Norton, had a family gathering at her home on Sunday so he had a chance to visit with a lot of Delory’s nieces and nephews. Most were from this area, but Ronnie and Keith Benson traveled down from Duluth to visit. In celebration of Delory’s life, family members listened to a recording of her memorial service. Al had to go back home on Tuesday, but had a wonderful time while he was here. Jim, Summer, Jensyn, Maddy and Olivia Marsh hosted a birthday party for Pat Olson and me at their cabin on Sunday afternoon. We had lots of relatives there, ate way too much and had a great time. After everyone was finished eating and

relaxing, Jim took Sanara, Savanna, Jensyn, Maddy, Olivia and me for a boat ride and the braver ones (I was not one of them) went on a inner tube he pulled behind the boat. It was fun (and scary) to watch him pulling Jensyn and Savanna over huge waves and playing crack-thewhip with them. Jensyn fell off twice, but Savanna clung on for dear life and didn’t fall off even once. Then, when Olivia and Jensyn were on the tube, the story changed dramatically. He was a lot more careful with the 10-year-old than he was with the older kids. Thank heavens! I was more of a chicken than the kids on the tube. We saw Bev and Joe Blank at the Red Brick again on Sunday morning. They had a whole table of family members with them. Some of the kids were from Illinois and a couple were from Green Bay. The family from Illinois is going to stay for the Fourth, but those from Green Bay had to get home again. Bev said that they had a pretty full house, but they sure looked like they were enjoying having the kids visit. I guess that’s about all I know from Barronett this week. Hope to see you at either the Cumberland or Shell Lake Independence Day celebrations. There is so much going on in both towns that I don’t know how we’ll see everything. See you next time.

Venus is the goddess of love and beauty, and was worshiped by the Romans. In art she's shown as a beautiful woman, and is usually naked or slightly dressed. Napoleon commissioned the famous sculptor Dannecker to do a statue of her, but he refused. "Why?" asked the emperor. "My chisel has done the Lord Jesus Christ," said the Christian, "and it can never be lowered to do a Roman goddess." God has blessed you with talents and treasures. You owe everything to him. Never lower yourself for godlessness. The Bible says, "Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." Visit us at:

Donation helps free clinic purchase computer

Barron Electric Cooperative recently donated $500 to the Rice Lake Area Free Clinic, which serves Barron, Rusk and Washburn counties. Nancy Kaner, licensed practical nurse, said, “We really appreciate Barron Electric’s donation. The clinic has had over 200 unique patients and more than 450 patient visits since opening in June 2010.” Almost all of the services are provided by volunteers, from medical staff to social workers to receptionists. On average, each open clinic night costs $1,500 and more than 80 volunteer hours. Services and medications that are within their scope of care are provided at no cost to patients who qualify for the services. For more information, visit or call 715-736-FREE.

MADISON - The flu season may be months away, but one Madison hospital is getting ready by implementing mandatory vaccination for all its workers. SSM Health Care is requiring all workers to get a seasonal flu shot. This applies to doctors, nurses, volunteers and other staff at the company's three hospitals, namely both of St. Mary's locations in Madison and Janesville, and St. Claire in Baraboo. Previously, workers were encouraged to get vaccinated or sign waivers saying they understood the risks of not doing so. St. Mary's nurse-epidemiologist Ellen Smith says voluntary participation was about 75 percent. "The reason we went to the mandatory immunization is vaccination has been around a long time," says Smith. Other hospitals in the state, such as Marshfield Clinic, started requiring workers to have flu shots during the H1N1 pandemic.

Area Writer’s Corner The bugs who dwell among us

When I was a kid there used to be advertising cartoons in magazines that were drawn by Theodor Geisel, comical depictions of a boy with a spray gun squirting liquid and a parent shouting, “Quick, Henry! The Flit!” The bug was doomed, of course. That was one I always looked for, mostly because the bugs looked so cute, dropping dead. Later, we know, the man from Springfield, Mass., became the children’s author, Dr. Seuss. His rhyming stories are favorites, and kids today probably never knew about the flit gun that destroyed insects. We had an insect repellent gun like the one Henry used, and we used mosquito net to protect ourselves from biting insects. In small towns, people used to spray whole neighborhoods with insect spray to keep down mosquitoes. That was to eliminate malaria, caused by mosquitoes. After the ban on DDT they stopped. We were on our own. Flies were another problem, and we dealt with them with fly spray. For the spray, you had to get out of the house for a while to let it take effect. Then you could

go back in the house, and other flies would soon come back in. We always had a reliable fly swatter, in the hands of a child, and I was the official swatter, sometimes. Like Henry, I would come running with the fly swatter when a fly appeared or maybe a hornet or bumblebee. Chances are, if you’ve never heard of Lyme disease, or the danger of contracting it, you’ve not been around here very long. It is a nasty disease that results from the bite of an infected tick, a tiny little thing, a third the size of your ordinary dog tick. It has some symptoms that may appear to be something else. The person bitten experiences fever and pain much like arthritis in joints, and a bull’s-eye rash appears – not an itchy rash but its circular pattern is characteristic of the disease, and is one of the signs the doctor looks for. When the person with the disease receives antibiotics the disease eases up. But it remains in the person’s bloodstream. Not very long ago, 1975 and a bit later, the disease cropped up in Lyme, Conn., and it was determined that it was a tick-borne disease and they named it after the area studied. By 1981, they believed it to be the most common in the Northern Hemisphere. If you have it, you’re not alone.

These ticks are mysterious creatures belonging to the arachnid family. Called mites, they are external parasites and vectors of Lyme disease. They are hematophagous, living on the blood of mammals, birds and reptiles and even amphibians. Isn’t this amazing? Toads can get ticks? And frogs? Poor little things. The deer tick, not your ordinary dog tick that doesn’t cause Lyme’s, is found wherever there are deer. This is because it depends on deer for reproduction. In the larval and nymph stages of its development, the ticks are immature and cannot reproduce. They feed on birds and small mammals. The adult female needs a threeday blood supply from the deer before she can reproduce and lay 2,000 eggs. This seems to imply that if there were less deer, there would be less ticks. Maybe not. A study of the relationship between cases of Lyme disease done in Bridgeport, Conn., show this to be true. From 1996 to 2004 the Mumford County Community in Groton, Conn., reduced the numbers of deer from 77 deer per square mile to about 10 deer per square mile, after two years of controlled hunting. After the initial reduction of the herd, they kept the deer population at low levels. Their study showed

that by keeping the deer population reduced, the cases of humans contracting Lyme disease were reduced by 90 percent. Yet, there is another study at Penn State’s Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics that showed that fewer deer may lead to higher tick densities leading to more tickborne infections in rodents leading to a high prevalence of encephalitis. This may create what they call a tick hot spot. There seems to be no sure direction to go on this. So, where do we go from here? “Quick, Henry! The Flit!” There is a natural form of control of ticks and it is, surprisingly, the guinea fowl. Get yourself a flock of guineas. The experts say two birds can clear two acres in a single year! One thing about ticks, they are more active in warm weather, just like people. They get out in the woods, cling to tall grass and float around in the wind in meadows. They hang out near water holes where animals come to drink and ambush them. They grab hold and attach themselves to their skin. The ticks have been around for 145 million years and scientists and we can look at ticks embedded in amber that are more than a million years old. Guess we have to live with them.

Others spoke in opposition to short-term rentals. Mayor Peterson referred this matter to the Plan Commission. A resignation from Alderperson Buckridge effective July 1, 2011, was read. Alderperson Buckridge is moving out of the city. Bitney moved, seconded by Eiche, to accept the resignation and to direct the City Administrator to advertise the council vacancy. The motion carried.

The Town of Sarona has an ordinance for the confidentiality of information about income and expenses that is provided to the Assessor under this paragraph which provides exemptions for persons using information in the discharge of duties imposed by law or of the duties of their office by order of a court. The information that is provided under this paragraph, unless a court determined that it is inaccurate, is not subject to the right of inspection and copying under Section 19.35(1) of Wis. Statutes. The Board shall hear upon oath, by telephone, all ill or disabled persons who present to the board a letter from a physician, surgeon or osteopath that confirms their illness or disability.

Laker Times When does a library become a zoo?

The children’s attention was glued to the albino Burmese python on the table while the adults kept their attention on the snake for a different reason.

Educators with the Lake Superior Zoo Zoomobile brought animals from the zoo in Duluth to the Shell Lake Library on Thursday, June 23.

Rhianna Murray wasn’t scared, well maybe a little, but she had Aunt Jennifer Johnson to protect her. The strange and sometimes scary looking creatures are a fascination for young minds. This was the last in a series of summer programs held by the Shell Lake Library made possible through donations.

PHOTO AT LEFT: Up close and personal with a bearded dragon from the arid, semi-desert region of Australia. The library is a great place to explore the great diversity of wildlife on planet Earth by reading or through programs like this. PHOTO AT RIGHT: The tiny screech owl was a hit with everyone at the program. Found only in the Americas, the screech owl is the smallest species of owls. The male will make a nest, and the female will select a mate based on the nest he made and the amount of food he has stored in the nest.
