Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Rick Santorum. Martin O’Malley joins Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side. In addition, voters can select an uninstructed delegation for each party. The 15 names on the ballot were selected in January by the leaders of each party in the state following the Wisconsin Ballot Access Rules of the Government Accountability Board. That leadership group includes the chairs of each state party, a female and male national committee person, and the party leaders in the state Senate and Assembly, five people for each party. They determine “which people are generally … recognized by the news media … as candidates.” The 15 were still active candidates, in their opinions, on Jan. 5.
State Supreme Court contest of Tuesday ballot Statewide election only judicial race
Gregg Westigard | Staff writer WASHBURN COUNTY – Voters will choose between Rebecca Bradley and Joanne Kloppenburg in the contest for justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court next Tuesday, April 5. That race and the presidential primary are the only contested elections on all the Washburn County ballots. The two are running for the seat formerly held by Patrick Crooks. Crooks had announced that he would not run for another term on the court where he had served since 1996. He died last fall while still serving and Gov. Scott Walker appointed Bradley to fill the vacant
seat. Bradley was already a candidate for the position and is now running as the incumbent. Information on the two candidates can be found on the website of the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance. Go to wistax.org and look for the link In their Own Words on the home page. There is also a link to this information on the Register website. Other judicial contests There are two other judicial contests this April, and in both cases the incumbents are running unopposed for re-election. Thomas Hruz is seeking a full term on the court of appeals for District 3. He was appointed to the position in 2014. Spooner city voters will also get to vote for their municipal court judge where the present judge, Andrew S. Lawton, is the only candidate.

No place for sexual assault in our communities April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month SHELL LAKE - Embrace, formerly TimeOut, is spreading awareness that prevention is possible this April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Nearly one in five women and one in 71 men are victims of sexual assault, but everyone is impacted by sexual violence. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This year’s campaign focuses on ways that individuals, communities and the private sector can help prevent sexual violence. “Everyone understands that sexual violence impacts victims and their families, but the effects of this violent crime on communities and society are less obvious,” said Embrace domestic violence program coordinator Brittny Olson. “Sexual violence creates a climate of fear, anger, and/or disbelief in the workplaces, campuses and communities that it occurs in.” Additionally, sexual violence generates criminal justice, medical, and crisis and mental health service expenses. Perhaps most damaging are the lost contributions of survivors. Olson said while preventing such a far-reaching and prevalent social issue as sexual violence may seem overwhelming or impossible, that is exactly what they are doing.
During the month of April, Washburn County residents will observe teal ribbons on all local law enforcement vehicles. The teal ribbons represent the support these agencies have for survivors and advocates of sexual assault. Shown (L to R): Adam Brunclik, Birchwood police chief; William Shafer, Washburn County Sheriff’s Department juvenile officer; Brittny Olson, Embrace domestic violence program coordinator; Dennis Stuart, Minong police chief, Dave Wilson, Shell Lake police chief, and Jerry Christman, Spooner police chief. — Photo by Danielle Danford “There are many practical steps that are currently being taken in our homes, neighborhoods, schools, faith communities and workplaces,” said Olson. “But there are many more things we can do to promote safety, respect and accountability.” “Prevention starts with challenging victim-blaming, and believing survivors when they disclose,” she said. Olson explained individuals can model supportive relationships and behaviors, call out
harmful attitudes, and challenge the societal acceptance of rape. Communities and businesses can take action to implement policies that promote safety, respect and equality. As this year’s slogan declares, prevention is possible.
How to get involved Embrace, along with all of the law enforcement agencies in Washburn County,
welcome April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. To show their support for the many survivors of sexual assault, the Spooner, Minong, Birchwood and Shell Lake police departments and the Washburn County Sheriff’s Department have teal ribbon magnets on all department law enforcement vehicles. In addition to the demonstration of support for survivors and advocates, the teal ribbons convey a powerful message that there is no place for sexual assault in our communities. Embrace is also teaming up with Be.You.tiful Hair Designs in Shell Lake to provide temporary, clamp in, real, tealcolored hair extensions. The hair extensions are $10 each with all proceeds being donated to Embrace. Give Joni a call, or stop in to get yours. Be.You.tiful Hair Designs, 715-520-3091. Embrace encourages community members to support survivors of sexual assault and wear jeans on Sunday, April 27. Denim Day is a nationally recognized campaign which states there is no excuse and never an invitation to rape. Keep an eye out for Embrace’s displays with information about sexual assault and prevention at the Spooner, Shell Lake and Minong libraries. Embrace is displaying teal pinwheels in their office windows to represent the survivors of sexual assault served in Washburn County. — from Embrace
School board approves additional budget cuts in closed session SPOONER - The Spooner School Board acted on several topics during their regular monthly meeting on Monday, March 21. Topics included closed session budget cuts, teacher contracts, college credit classes and personnel actions. Out of a closed session, taken to discuss a request for sabbatical leave and reductions in staffing, the school board announced that they approved approximately $246,000 in additional cost savings for the 2016-17 school year. According to the district additional details will be available after affected personnel have been notified and given time to reflect on possible decisions. The administration plans to provide additional details to staff and community the first week of April.
Teacher contracts for 2016-17 The board approved the employment contracts for licensed teachers. Those contracts include 61.5 full-time equivalency staff at $3,100,509 in total salaries. The board approved the contracts to be offered for the 20016-17 school year. Employees affected are those that currently have a contract and will have a contract next year. Miles Macone recused himself from the vote. College credit course options approved Youth options courses, those that qualify for high school and college credits, for fall 2016 were approved at an estimated $12,000 in tuition fees. The school district is responsible for covering the cost which is based on the cost of tuition per credit
at each college. It is also based on the scenario that all students interested took the maximum expected courses. The cost per credit varies from $139 to $238. According to these figures the highest estimate has about 50 students interested in the courses, which are offered through colleges like WITC, UW online and UW Barron County. The board also approved high school course additions for the 2016-17 school year including digital music production, technology education courses, career math and a reorganization of the high school physical education offerings to better meet students’ needs.
Personnel actions The board accepted the resignation of Jody Eichhorst, high school family and consumer education teacher. The district
acknowledged and thanked her for her 16 years of service. The board also accepted resignations from Kayleigh Lutz, JV volleyball and JV basketball coach, and Jeromie Voeltz, middle school track coach. Both coaches were thanked for their service to the district. The board approved the hiring of Tyler Pabich as JV baseball coach and Josh Tischer and Tiffanie Jensen as middle school track coaches. The board approved the hiring of Alishia Webster as an administrative assistant for the high school counseling and special education office. Webster’s work experience includes time with Washburn County Health and Human Services and the Department of Corrections. — Danielle Danford with information from the Spooner Area School District
Shell Lake students undergo testing, new FFA adviser position approved Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE – Shell Lake Primary School Principal Laura Stunkel and high school Principal Heather Cox told the Shell Lake School Board at their regular monthly meeting on Monday, March 21, that both schools are preparing for testing. The board also handled personnel actions and established an ad hoc compensation committee in the course of their meeting. Cox said students have finished the ACT test while freshman and sophomore high school students started the ACT Aspire on Tuesday, March 29. Stunkel said
primary school students in grades three through eight started the Forward exam the same day.
Personnel actions The board approved the hiring of an assistant FFA adviser to assist mainly with the junior high FFA program. David Bridenhagen, superintendent, explained that the biggest challenge the program is facing is the number of students participating with Jenifer Bos, agricultural education instructor, as the only adviser. The position will also provide a combina-
tion support and CDE trainer for all FFA events. Total FFA membership over the past eight years has been between 45 and 58 members. The board approved the position with a $500 stipend in compensation on a unanimous voice vote. The board accepted the resignation of Ashley Marschall as assistant high school volleyball coach. In her letter of resignation, Marschall states her reason for leaving is in no way to reflect negatively on the other high school coaches and that coaching for the team has been a positive experience for her.
Compensation committee established An ad hoc compensation committee was established by the board to develop a new staff compensation model. Bridenhagen explained that since Act 10, districts across the state have been having to address compensation as the current system is no longer sustainable. Members of the committee are board members Nicole Tims and Joel Anderson, district administrators David Bridenhagen, Heather Cox and Laura Stunkel, and five staff members that were not identified.

Shell Lake School District now on social media Danielle Danford | Staff writer SHELL LAKE - The Shell Lake School District now has a social media presence, an announcement district administrators shared with school board members on Monday, March 21, during their regular monthly meeting. “It is growing quickly, it is very fun to see all the great things that are going on here are getting out into the community more,” Laura Stunkel, primary school principal, told the board. The district’s social media presence is a Facebook page called School District of Shell Lake. Posts so far include daily school breakfast and lunch menus, classroom updates from teachers and photos of student activities. The board approved a first reading of
a new district policy outlining the uses of the district’s social media account.

AREA NEWS AT A GLANCE RICE LAKE - The Rice Lake School District absentee rate has dropped sharply in five years. A Barron County Restorative Justice program is having a significant impact on turning around student absenteeism. The district has seen a dramatic reduction in the number of children who have been chronically absent at the elementary level. In a restorative justice report, the percentage of students chronically absent has declined by more than half. During the 2010-11 school year 14.3 percent of the district’s students were chronically absent, but by last school year that absentee rate had dropped to 6.1 percent. Students are considered chronically absent if they miss 10 percent or more of school days for any reason. “The drop of 8.3 percent means that we have gone from approximately 115 students per year who were chronically absent in 2010-11 to

sures, including the Polk County Government Center, where employees were sent home shortly before 2:30 p.m. “The investigation into the person responsible is continuing,” said Johnson. The threats

SPOONER - The 12th-annual Pins for Pets bowling fundraiser was held on Saturday, March 19, at the Northwoods Lanes and Lounge in Spooner. What a pleasingly successful event this fundraiser turned out to be for the WCAHS animal shelter. Profits raised for the shelter were over $2,500 thanks to the caring generosity of all who participated in any way, whether as a bowler, an event volunteer, someone who donated money or a prize, bought a raffle ticket, brought in a donation from the shelter’s wish list or contributed to the snack table. It was a great turnout with over 80 bowlers of all ages and bowling skills involved in this 9-pin tap event. Not only did the bowler registration money profit this event but many bowlers brought in donation sheet money or just donated a little extra to help boost the financial benefits of this fundraiser. From the sight of smiles on faces, sounds of laughter, excited looks on faces during the prize drawings, and the depleted lunch/dessert tables, it sure indicated that everyone had a good time, enjoyed good food, and left with a content feeling, knowing they had blessed the WCAHS animal shelter with their generosity and involvement in the 2016 Pins for Pets bowling fundraiser. — from WCAHS

Jungerberg to present Thursdays at the U Lecture Series RICE LAKE - The next presentation of the Thursdays at the U Lecture Series is “Living the Good Life: What Psychology Research Tells Us” by psychologist Bruce Jungerberg of UW-Barron County. It will be held Thursday, April 7, 12:30 – 1:20 p.m., in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall at UWBC. All series presentations are open to the public free of charge.

While commenting on the psychological research behind these strategies during his presentation, he also will introduce specific strategies from behavioral economics, the emerging field of positive psychology involving gratitude and the identification of one’s strengths,
and strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy that can be used every day. Jungerberg received his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He has taught psycholBruce Jungerberg ogy and counseling courses at several colleges and has provided psychology services to the residents of northwestern Wisconsin for more than 30 years.

rise rapidly, the sirens would be used to quickly and safely alert people who are downstream of the dam to move to higher ground. In the event of a dam failure, the sequence would be: • Whoop tone for 10 seconds. • “Attention!” An upstream dam has failed. Remain calm and seek higher ground immediately. Expect rapidly rising waters. Please evacuate to a safe area immediately!” This would be repeated three times with a five-second delay between messages. • Whoop tone for 60 seconds. • Repeat for 30 minutes or until warning is canceled. Because the Namekagon River is part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway managed by the National Park Service, Xcel Energy worked closely with the Park Service during the installation of the warning sirens and coordination of the

General Tso’s Chicken A lot of Chinese restaurants in the
states serve General Tso’s chicken, but just like chop suey and fortune cookies, they are totally unknown to the native Chinese. Unlike Colonel Sanders, who created his famous “finger licking chicken with 10 secret herbs and spices,” there is no living proof that Gen. Tso has anything to do with this famous dish. Actually, we don’t know if Gen. Tso even liked the taste of chicken. So, where is the connection? That’s something charming and romantic about food and beverage, many memorable entrees or drinks were created a long time ago and somehow remain famous after many generations. Do you know who created Caesar salad? No, not Julius Caesar from the mighty Roman Empire, but a chef named Caesar Cardini, who was an immigrant from Italy. It was in his restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico, that he first introduced this famous salad. And how about margaritas? They are found in block letters in most menus of Mexican restaurants, but who created it? Funny enough, both versions of that story involve Tijuana, Mexico. Tijuana must have been a swinging town back then. One version is that in 1938 a restaurateur named Carlos “Danny” Herrera wanted to please the famous movie star Majorie King, but she couldn’t drink the popular tequila because it was too potent. So, he blended some sweetened lime juice with triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur) and mixed them with tequila and then served her. And she loved it. Another story surfaced 10 years later. A Dallas socialite named Margarita Sames served a special drink for her party hosted
Wok & roll
Peter H. Kwong at her home in Acapulco, Mexico. Her guests loved the drink. One of the guests was Tommy Hilton, the owner of the famous Hilton hotel chain. He brought the recipe back to the States, introduced it to his hotels and the name “margarita” became a household word overnight. Yes, Gen. Tso did exist, but there was no proof that he created the famous dish. He was indeed a general in the Qing Dynasty. Actually, his name is pronounced as Juo (not Tso) Jung Tang. He led his army and defeated the Taiping Rebellion, 1862 – 1877. He was considered a hero in his hometown of Hunan, which is famous for its spicy cooking. However, one cannot find “General Tso’s chicken” served in any restaurants in Hunan, or even in China. So, who should take the credit? Though many chefs have claimed ownership through all these years, this one story has the most credibility. There was a chef named Peng Chang Kwei, or P.C. Kwei, who was one of the master chefs for Gen. Cheng Kai Shek. Then, when the communists took over China after WWII, the National Party fled to the little island of Taiwan. During the ‘60s, Kwei and his family migrated to the States and settled down in New York City. Kwei eventually opened a restaurant. He specialized in Hunan cooking, which is hot and spicy, and the American folks weren’t very keen
on spicy foods then. So, seeing that sweet and sour pork was very popular with the Americans, chef Kwei took one of his favorite chicken dishes and modified it with a sweet and spicy sauce. He didn’t have a name for the new creation yet. Then, he remembered his childhood hero Gen. Tso Jung Tang and named the dish after him. Hence, General Tso’s Chicken was born. It was an instant success. Even Henry Kissinger favored the dish and had a picture taken with chef Kwei which still hangs in the restaurant. There are a hundred versions of how to make General Tso’s chicken, and they are all tasty and yummy. But, wouldn’t it be funny if Gen. Tso was still alive, just to see his name connected to chicken, if he was a vegetarian? So, let’s get serious and cook us some great food. I modified the recipe somewhat and came with my own version. I tested it on my friends and neighbors, and they all give me the thumbs-up. General Tso’s Chicken (feeds four) Ingredients: Chicken cubed, 1 lb. (I personally like dark meat) Egg whites, three ea. Cornstarch, one-half cup Flour, one-half cup Chili pods, 7-10 Salt and pepper to taste
Chili paste, 1 tsp. (add more if you like hot and spicy) Cornstarch, 8 tsp. White wine, 2 cups Vinegar, one-fourth cup Brown sugar, 12 tbsp. Soya sauce, 2 tbsp.
Plum sauce, 4 tbsp. (same as hoi sin sauce) Ketchup, 2 tbsp. Marmalade, 2 tbsp.
Pat dry chicken pieces, season to taste, and dip in egg white, then cornstarch and flour mix. Note: Most recipes just call for cornstarch, but the added flour will give the chicken a softer crunch and it will be more golden-brown. Heat up wok/pan and add 2 inches of oil. Brown all pieces, six to eight pieces at a time; center of chicken should be white, not pink. Pick up and place on plate with paper towels to absorb excess grease. In separate pot, add 2 tbsp. oil, then add chili pods and all sauce ingredients, and gently stir till it thickens. If it is too thick, add more water/wine. Taste the sauce to your liking, you can add more sugar if you like more sweet, or add vinegar if you like more ‘pucker’. Add the fried chicken to the sauce, make sure that all pieces are nicely coated. Serve with steamed jasmine rice. For garnish, circle the plate with steamed broccoli crowns (that’s optional). Enjoy, and may the spirit of Gen. Tso be with you. Peter Kwong will be teaching Chinese Cooking 101/Wine Pairing through Spooner Area Community Education. The classes will run four Friday evenings, April 15 – May 6. Contact Karen Collins, 715-635-0243, for more information, or see spooner.k12.wi.us.
Spooner Area Community Ed spices up with chef Peter Kwong SPOONER - Spooner Area Community Ed welcomes Peter Kwong, a new community education instructor. Kwong will travel to Spooner to share his rich background working in the hospitality industry and his infectious worldview with the community starting this April. Kwong has remarked, more than once, how thankful he is for all he has been given. While enjoying life to the fullest his retirement plan in the North Woods includes passing his experiences, expertise and passions on to others. “How sad to just take it to the grave,” drives Kwong’s energy and purpose. Among Kwong’s accolades is his 30 years working in the hospitality industry, where “headhunters” lured Chef Kwong to Texas, Georgia and finally Milwaukee. In concert with his career goals, he has
instructed at WCTC and served as an adjunct professor of restaurant management at International Culinary School. He also proudly started La Brasa Rotisserie Restaurant in Milwaukee where he incorporated a Latino flair. Not stopping there, Kwong also shares his passions as restaurant consultant, musician and weekly a columnist writing Wok & Roll. Originating in Hong Kong, Kwong’s positive worldview and gentle wisdom are catching for all lucky enough to spend a bit of time with him. Kwong promises to spice up Spooner Community Ed offerings. In addition to traveling to Spooner to offer three cooking series — Chinese, Mexican and Italian — April through July, other specialties he will offer are a wine pairing class at Spooner Market & Grill plus a Dim Sum

National Infant Immunization Week is April 16-23 SPOONER - National Infant Immunization Week is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases. Thanks to immunizations, most people today have never seen the devastating consequences that vaccine-preventable diseases can have on a family and community. But these diseases persist. In fact, recently, the U.S. has experienced outbreaks of Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, measles and mumps. In Washburn County, 94 cases of pertussis/parapertussis have been reported over the last four years.
Giving babies the recommended immunizations by age 2 is the best way to protect them from 14 serious childhood diseases, including whooping cough. Although the number of vaccines recommended during the first two years of life may seem like a lot, doctors know a great deal about the human immune system, and they know that a healthy baby’s immune system can handle getting all the vaccines at the recommended times. Staying on time with the recommended immunizations helps ensure that your children have the best protection against these diseases says Dr. Nancy Messonnier,
deputy director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She also cautions parents against delaying vaccination stating, “there is no known benefit to delaying vaccination, in fact, it puts babies at risk.” Dr. Paul Offit, of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, put it another way, “You wouldn’t put your child in the car without a seat belt or in a boat without a life jacket, so why would you leave them unprotected against vaccine-preventable diseases by not vaccinating them?” To aid in protecting infants, it is recom-
mended that all pregnant women receive the whooping cough vaccine, Tdap, during the third trimester of each pregnancy to help protect their baby until the infant can be vaccinated at 2 months of age. Immunizing is a shared responsibility. Families, health-care providers and public health officials must work together to help protect the entire community against vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunization information is available from the following: A medical provider, the Washburn County Health Department and vaccine.chop.edu or cdc.gov/ vaccines/. — from WCHD

Each year the board is joined by youth representatives from school districts in the county. The youth representatives that have served on the board since 2015 are McLain Hutton and Nathaniel Wingler. In their roles on the board, the student representatives attend all board meetings, take part in board discussions and cast their own votes on board matters. While their votes aren’t included in the end, the program is an opportunity to participate in an active leadership role and learn, firsthand, about how county governance works. Hutton plans to serve another year on the board while Wingler plans to attend college and is unable to. Both were willing to share their experience thus far. Wingler is 17 years old and a senior at Shell Lake High School. Subjects he enjoys and excels at are social studies and science. His hobbies include football,

The Root Beer Lady Beyond the office door
or some students spring break has come and gone. Others may have escaped Wisconsin this winter to spend some time in a warmer climate. In February, as Milt and I were discussing some type of winter getaway, I stated that I would like to go to the North Shore of Lake Superior. And that is what we did. Milt and I spent a couple of days in Two Harbors, Minn. The white beach that we strolled along wasn’t white sand but rather fresh, white snow. The lake was beautiful with its open blue water nestling up against the piles of rock that were covered in white snow. There were white fluffy clouds filling a bright-shadeof-blue sky. We didn’t have to share the shoreline with anyone. While enjoying a leisurely breakfast at the Vanilla Bean restaurant on the main drag in Two Harbors, I spotted a book in the display rack called “Dorothy Molter: The Root Beer Lady,” written by Sarah GuyLevar and Terri Schocke. Guy-Levar is the executive director of the Dorothy Molter Museum in Ely, Minn., and Schocke is employed at the museum. I paged through the book but didn’t purchase it. When I returned from my getaway, I was curious about Dorothy Molter and why she was referred to as the “Root Beer Lady.” One day while I was at the Shell Lake Public Library, I asked library director Amy about the book. A quick check revealed there are several books written on the Root Beer Lady but I wanted the one written by Guy-Levar and Schocke. As Shell Lake’s library didn’t have the book, they were able
Suzanne Johnson to get it for me through an interlibrary loan program, with the book coming from the Osceola Public Library. The book on Dorothy Molter, a skilled nurse, tells of her 56 years living alone on Isle of Pines on Knife Lake, in Minnesota, which today is part of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of the Superior National Forest. Dorothy’s home was 15 miles and five portages from the nearest road. Over the years Dorothy entertained thousands of fishermen and canoeists. At age 16-1/2, canoeist, now actress, Julia Roberts visited Dorothy’s island as part of a youth canoe trip. As it wasn’t easy to bring supplies to the Isle of Pines, Dorothy started making root beer to sell to visitors. According to the book, she usually brewed an average of over 10,000 bottles of root beer per summer. Her recipe is included in the book. The instructions say to stir with a canoe paddle – pine for flavor. The buildings from Dorothy’s place were torn down, hauled to nearby Ely, Minn., and rebuilt near the Ely
On the best-seller list Old wife’s tales
verybody knows the Holy Bible has always been at the top of the top 20 best-sellers and there are reasons why this is true. People want Bibles. It was the first book ever to see the printed word. Before they came out with the printing machine in Germany, the Bibles were copied out by hand. Also, there was most likely a long waiting list for the printed Bibles. I think if you ordered a Bible, you would be in for months before you could hold that book in your hand. I am old enough to remember when big-city newspapers came hot off the presses, and for some momentous event people would snatch up the paper from a newsboy hollering “extra.” The printing process had certainly speeded up. These days, an ocean of books, including Bibles, can be printed more quickly. In the old days, when there was no newsboy and no Internet or electronic message devices, the times were different. The whole country carried on commerce at a slower pace. There was postal delivery and the trains were running. There were salesmen who traversed the country taking orders for merchandise. These salesmen would go by train to all the small towns and find a hotel room near the train station. There may have been many respectable people riding trains and selling, but among the less than gentlemen were some rootless vagabonds who checked in at hotels, and men without wives to check their behavior, with the result that a lot of rowdiness occurred. Hotel employees were reluctant to interfere and found it difficult to restrain their guests’ use of their leisure time. Women did not check into a hotel without gentlemen accompanying them. If you ever knew what happened at deer camp, you can only imagine what hotel guests of
Mary B. Olsen that time were like. On a day in 1898, at a hotel in Boscobel, Wis., called the Central Hotel, a gentleman entered and registered, requesting a room. There was only a single room available, and it must be shared. John “Nick” Nicholson agreed to share the room with another gentleman, a salesman from Beloit named Sam Hill. Both men were of the same mind. They were disturbed by the atmosphere they observed in the lobby. It was “... crowded with drummers and ‘hangabouts’ playing cards, shaking dice, smoking, laughing, cursing, yelling, and singing with clinking of glasses and ... men drunk and asleep in chairs.” They agreed that Christian men like themselves should have a better way of passing the time when traveling. With these thoughts in mind, they considered the situation and hashed out some basic plans, and from that day began the Gideon International Society. They took the name from Gideon in Judges 6 in the Bible. One letter came to their attention from a gentleman not of their acquaintance. He wrote that he was in a hotel room in desperate straits, planning to end his life. He came across a Bible someone had left in the
The North Shore of Lake Superior is a fascinating place to visit, whether it is summer or winter. — Photo by Suzanne Johnson Chamber of Commerce and have become the Dorothy Molter Museum. The next time I feel like heading north, I may have to make Ely my destination so I can continue to learn about the Root Beer Lady.
room. He picked it up and read some passages in it, and decided to turn his life around and live again. This inspired the organization to begin the distribution of Bibles to be placed in hotel rooms. Many people must travel when devastating events are happening in their lives. The Bible can be a comfort to ease minds and calm nerves, and give solace to the bereaved. They give Bibles to people who cannot buy them. From the day they placed the first Bible in a hotel room in Superior, Mont., until the year 2015, they have placed 2 billion Bibles in hotels in over 200 countries. Their first billion from 1908 until 2001, and their second billion in less than 16 years. They have their headquarters in Nashville, Tenn. They give out orange Bibles on city sidewalks, and green Bibles for students in college, and red for schoolchildren. They give Bibles in camo to soldiers, and white ones to medical workers. In some places the Gideons give printed copies of parts of the New Testament, and Psalms and Proverbs. On a trip to Canada, I found a Gideon Bible in my hotel room written in both French and English, side by side. Since I enjoyed renewing my French, I asked at the desk if I might purchase the copy in my room. They said they cannot sell the Bibles. “You may take it home, and another copy will be placed in the room.” I have it and enjoy reading in it at times. My daughter told me that when her brother passed away she sent money to the society to purchase Bibles, and they would have her brother’s name on it as a memorial. This may be better than a floral tribute to honor a loved one’s memory.

omeone recently reminded me that my heart beats 72 times a minute, 100,000 times a day, 3,600,000 S times a year and, if I live what would be considered a
normal life span, it will beat 2.5 billion times. It only weighs about 11 ounces yet will pump about 2,000 gallons of blood through 60,000 miles of blood vessels each day. Rather amazing, to say the least. Yet I rarely stop to consider those facts. It’s God at work in my body taking care of me, watching over me, providing life for me and within me. Often in life we seek God’s presence and power to protect us and provide for our needs. But are we aware of the magnitude of his grace, gifts and goodness? Are we sincerely thankful for his constant care, concern and compassion? Do we ever pause to think of the work our heart does without our having to do anything to make it work? Do we realize that God is alive and involved in our lives without our even mentioning his name? God gives us life without asking for it and help when we call upon him when we are having difficult times. David needed God’s help. He knew that in God’s name there was help and hope. He experienced it in the past and knew it was available in the present. And when God helped him, the first thing he did was to praise his name. Praise is what we are to do when we recognize God at work in our lives.

It was a very dreary day on Easter Sunday when it should have been sunny. I guess we take what we get. There’s no snow and I hope it’s done for this season. It must be spring as I heard a killdeer squawking on Sunday. First one I saw was on March 25. They’re probably very happy to be back in Dewey Country. After all, Dewey Country is country living at its best! A very happy birthday to Eleanor Huls Grunes as she enjoys her special day with lots more to come. A very happy birthday to Esther Honetor on her special day, March 31. Enjoy your day, Esther. A very happy birthday to Erik Cassellious on his special day, April 1. Enjoy. April 2, a very happy birthday to Alecia Meister as she enjoys her special day with lots more to come. Also a happy birthday to Elise Stellrecht, Don Dorriott, Justin Parker and Danielle Stariha. Have a wonderful day all. A very happy birthday to Stephanie Vanderhoof and also to Alexis Babolick on April 3. Enjoy your day. Samuel Beecroft, a very happy birthday to you on April 4 with lots more to come. Happy anniversary to Shawn and Tiffany Hopwood on April 5 when they celebrate eight years together. Many more to come. Bev Cassellious, a very happy birthday to you on your special day, April 6. Have a great day Bev.
Remember the meeting April 4. For farmers this is a very important meeting for you to attend. It is in regard to hauling loads on our highways as well as regarding our roads. It is at the Siren Senior Center at 2 p.m. Come and enjoy this meeting as it’s important. Well, come April 5, it’s time to vote. Yes, it’s time to get out and choose candidates for the November presidential election as well as local elections. Talking with Betty Meister, she tells us her daughter, Bev Jarrett and son Erick Cassellious came Friday and left for home Saturday night. Beth and Mark Hansen and children, Ryan and Alyssa, came Saturday and enjoyed dinner on Sunday before going back home. Sunday, Betty expected Sonny and Kevin Meister for dinner. Tuesday found Diane Hulleman working at Shell Lake Schools. Saturday, Diane made a big feast and had 18 of the gang home for Easter dinner. Diane says her refrigerator is so full of leftovers she’ll eat all week. Coming to enjoy the feast were Chad and Colleen Jensen and Izzy, Jackie Perlt, Jack and Ginny Schnell, Amanda and Jackson, Mike P. Murray, Sonya and Charles, Mike and Nancy Murray, Nicole and Jameson and Chris and his fiancee, Lisa. All enjoyed the feast made by Diane. Diane says she’s tired. Friday Jackie Perlt came to see her mom and left Saturday. Jerry and Gretchen Best were over to Gretchen’s mom’s for Easter. All enjoyed
the feast of potluck. Later the kids enjoyed an egg and basket hunt. Farmers will be planting and working their fields in a couple of weeks. The ground is wet now and hard to do any field work but eventually the ground dries out and from the middle of April on, farmers will be working. I always look forward to spring. It means little kittens will be here. Birds will be back building nests for their babies, grass will be green and won’t be long before we have to mow it. Saturday will find Karen Vanderhoof and Myrna Atkinson going to Rice Lake to the quilt show. They are entering three quilts. We wish them luck. Sunday, Karen and Doug Vanderhoof had the Easter meal, inviting their four children and their families, Katie and David Kinde, Logan and Megan, Travis and Ashley Vanderhoof and their children, McKenna and Conner, Stephanie and Trent Vanderhoof and children, and Mark and Noel Knoop and Alecia, and Kyle and his mate, and son Bentley. All enjoyed a feast. Karen tells us they have been hit with lots of colds this winter. Seems like you get over it and back it comes. Butch and Loretta VanSelus were at Das Lach Haus in Cumberland after church enjoying the buffet. Butch says it was really good. Home for the weekend was Robin Melton enjoying time with her mom.
They enjoyed Easter dinner at Vicki and Don Trott’s. Penny, Jeff, Rem, Ry and Ree went to Madison on Friday to attend a state youth wrestling tournament. Reyana wrestled two at 55 pounds and she came in second in the state. Great work, Reyana. The Ladds came home Sunday and went to Cathy Ladd’s for Easter. Reports of the family having a great time over the weekend. The Quams and Lauterbachs had Easter dinner at Gene and Debbie Quam’s. Later the kids got to look for 107 eggs that were hidden. The kids had a ball hunting. Congratulations to Megan and Dustin Ziemann who are the proud parents of a little girl, Paige Violet, 4 pounds and 9 ounces, and 18 inches long. Proud grandparents are Susie and Tim Pederson and Lillian and Arlin Ziemann. Great-grandparents are Marie and Warren Quam, and Helen Pederson, all of Shell Lake. May you enjoy that little bundle of joy. Susie Pederson tells me that her husband, Tim, will be retiring June 30. Yes, it’s happy retirement to Tim. A 64th wedding anniversary party will be held at the Dewey Town Hall for Marv and Gladys Knoop on Saturday, April 2, from 2-5 p.m. Cake and ice cream along with beverages will be served. Everyone welcome. Scatter sunshine! Have a great week!
Craig and Debbie Lehmann hosted their annual Easter party/egg hunt at their home on Sunday. The kids and adults have way too much fun there. Their big-kid egg hunt has one egg with a $10 bill inside it, I think. Maybe the kids know which egg that is because of the color. Anyway, Chad, who is 30-something, and DaShawn, who is probably 12, but a pretty big kid, both spotted the $10 egg at the same time. DaShawn dashed for it, Chad pushed him down, jumped over him, and grabbed the egg. DaShawn protested, saying that the egg should be his because he spotted it first. Chad agreed, said he would split the winnings with him, and promptly tore the bill in half, kept half and gave the other half to DaShawn. Trust me though, this is all in good fun. Everyone, including DaShawn, thought that was pretty funny. During the raw egg toss, little Tru was one of the players who tried, but didn’t quite succeed, to catch the egg without breaking it. She got splattered. Yuck! I think that wouldn’t be my kind of game. Anyway, everyone had a great time and were glad to be able to attend the annual Easter party at the Lehmann home. Lynn Thon had our family at her home for Easter dinner. We all spent most of our time sitting on the floor, trying to get little Kane to walk back and forth between us. He will be a year old on April 3 and is taking five or six steps before plopping down on his little backside. Isn’t it funny, we push our little guys and girls to start walking, and then complain when they do that we can’t keep up with them. Anyway, Lynn’s dinner was delicious, and we all had a great time eating, visiting and playing with Kane. Lynn had a really great week. Her friend Estella (Kittleson) Catron came from Taswell, Va., to visit for a couple of days. Estella and Lynn have been friends since they were about 5 years old, have kept in touch, and, after about 40 years, have visited each other twice in the past
year. While she was here they did a little shopping, naturally, and went out for dinner at the 5 O’Clock Club. Lynn said that the food was great and that they had a really good time. When she left here, Estella was heading for Hudson to visit another friend, and then going to San Antonio, Texas, to have Easter with her parents and her brother and his family. Estella’s dad is not a Kittleson from this area, he grew up in Lake Crystal, Minn. But, I always wonder if we are shirttail relations because my grandma’s maiden name was Kittleson. It would be pretty neat, wouldn’t it, if Estella and Lynn were actually related. Remember, we have a huge garage sale coming up at the Barronett Community Center on Saturday, April 16. Barronett Lutheran will have a table there and if you have anything you would like to donate to our sale, please give Peg Thompson or Gloria Gunderson a call. When I talked to Sherry Holmes, she said that she still had a couple of spaces to rent out. So if you would like to rent a space for your own sale, please call Sherry. This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of all that clutter that someone else will call a treasure. I might even venture up into the attic and pull out a bunch of stuff that we thought, at one time, we couldn’t live without. Funny how fast it accumulates, isn’t it? Guess what I did. I joined the gym —
well, I guess they call it the health club — at the Cumberland hospital. I decided that, just because I’m older than dirt, I don’t need to keep getting weaker and weaker every year. I’ve been going a little over a month now, and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve met interesting people, and maybe someday, if I work out hard enough, I’ll be able to pick up small grandchildren without hurting myself. You did notice that I said maybe, didn’t you? We’ve had a visitor this past week. A little Yorkie named Lily. Jim and Summer Marsh and family went on vacation and asked us to dog sit for her. She’s just a little thing, but she has been absolutely terrorizing our poor cat, Sarah. Actually, it’s been a kind of a standoff. Whenever Lily isn’t stalking Sarah, Sarah is looking at her, growling and hissing. It was a long week for the animals, and I’m sure both Lily and Sarah are glad to have their own kingdoms back again. I guess that’s about all I know from Barronett this week. I hope you can find the time to come to the 4-H play at the community center on Friday evening. And, don’t forget, Friday is April Fool’s Day, so start planning now on a prank to pull on your friends and relatives. See you next time.
We had a wonderful Easter here in Barronett. It started out with breakfast in the church basement. Peg Thompson and Jennifer Snowbank were on hand early to bake homemade caramel rolls and fry lots of Louie’s pork sausage. Other members of the church brought in egg bakes, muffins and fruit. It was a feast. We all had a great time eating and visiting. After breakfast we went upstairs for Easter worship service. Everything about Easter is so festive. There were beautiful flowers on the altar and lots of lilies around the front of the church. The church was filled, almost to capacity, with church members and guests. Pastor Todd retold the old, old story of Easter to a congregation eager to hear it. We love Easter. It’s the happiest time of the year. I hope you were able to get together with family and friends to celebrate Easter. Or, to those with kids scattered all over the world, I hope you got a chance to talk with them. In this age of telecommunications, it’s so much easier to visit. Kayla Peichel, who is serving in the Marines and is stationed in the Middle East at this time, sent a picture of herself to Miriah Lehmann’s phone and wished her a happy Easter. Isn’t technology great? Please remember all of our young people serving in the military, and people all over the world who are in danger because of terrorism, in your prayers. Maybe someday we will actually have world peace. Peg Thompson reminded us that this Friday, April 1, the Barronett Dragons 4-H Club members will be presenting the play, “Little Nell and the Mortgage Foreclosure,” at the Barronett Community Center at 7 p.m. The kids in the 4-H club are terrific actors. They always have their lines and facial expressions down pat, and the plays are hilarious. We are their practice audience on Friday night because on Saturday they compete against other clubs to see who has the best actors and play. Hope you can join us for that. It’s a great family night out.

Washburn County Area Humane Society You may have seen me here before, I was the featured pet. I was adopted once since then, Now I have one regret. I really was excited, And I guess I didn’t think. A game of cat and mouse is all, It happened in a blink. I thought the kitten was a toy, It seemed like fun to me. I found out this was not the case, And everyone agreed. The kitten turned out to be fine, But what would happen next. For everyone was very sad, The problem quite complex. I came back to the shelter, Now we know just what I need. A home without a kitten, This can happen with my breed. I’m such a good girl otherwise, I’ll love you till the end. And all you have to promise, Is to always be my friend.

NOTICE OF SPRING ELECTION AND SAMPLE BALLOTS APRIL 5, 2016 OFFICE OF THE BARRONETT TOWN CLERK TO THE VOTERS OF TOWN OF BARRONETT: Notice is hereby given of a spring election to be held in Town of Barronett, on April 5, 2016, at which the officers named below shall be chosen. The names of the candidates for each office to be voted for, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this office, are given under the title of the office, each in its proper column, together with the questions submitted to a vote, for a referendum, if any, in the sample ballot below. INFORMATION TO VOTERS Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote. If a voter is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence, if the voter presents proof of residence in a form specified by law. Where ballots are distributed to voters, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the voter’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the voter of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice. Where Paper Ballots are Used The voter shall make a mark (X) in the square next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions, the voter shall make a mark (X) in the square next to “yes” if in favor of the question, or the voter shall make a mark (X) in the square next to “no” if opposed to the question. Where Touch Screen Voting is Used The voter shall touch the screen next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions, the voter shall touch the screen next to “yes” if in favor of the question, or the voter shall touch the screen next to “no” if opposed to the question. The vote should not be cast in any other manner. Not more than five minutes’ time shall be allowed inside a voting booth or machine. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the voter in casting his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked. If the voter spoils a paper ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one voter. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the voter shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place. The voter may spoil a touch screen ballot at the voting station before the ballot is cast. After Voting the Ballot After an official paper ballot is marked, it shall be folded so the inside marks do not show, but so the printed endorsements and inspectors’ initials on the outside do show. The voter shall leave the booth, deposit the ballot in the ballot box, or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit, and shall leave the polling place promptly. After an official touch screen ballot is cast, the voter shall leave the polling place promptly. A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the voter’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the voter. The following is a sample of the official ballot:

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s safe drinking water hotline (800-4264791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immunocompromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health-care providers. EPA/ CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available from the Environmental Protection Agency’s safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791).

The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban storm-water runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm-water runoff and residential uses. • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are byproducts of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm-water runoff and septic systems. • Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health. Your water was tested for many contaminants last year. We are alowed to monitor for some contaminants less frequently than once a year. The following tables list only those contaminants which were detected in your water. If a contanimant was detected last year, it will appear in the following tables without a sample date. If the contaminant was not monitored last year, but was detected within the last 5 years, it will appear in the tables below along with the sample date.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. million fibers per liter Maximum residual disinfectant level: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. millirems per year (a measure of radiation absorbed by the body) Nephelometric Turbidity Units picocuries per liter (a measure of radioactivity) parts per million, or milligrams per liter (mg/l) parts per billion, or micrograms per liter (ug/l) parts per trillion, or nanograms per liter parts per quadrillion, or picograms per liter Total Coliform Rule Treatment Technique: A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant in drinking water.

Typical Source of Contaminant Erosion of natural deposits
If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Shell Lake Waterworks is responsible for providing high-quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water 643858 33r WNAXLP Hotline or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.

Good Friday observed in Shell Lake
First signs of spring
Carrying the cross much as Jesus did 2,000 years ago, members of the community re-enacted the walk to Calvary. The ecumenical Good Friday walk took place on Friday, March 25. The walk started at the high school and finished up at the Methodist church after going as far as Lakeland Manor.

Pastor John Sahlstrom and his grandson, Archer Trudell, presided over the community service that was held on the street and parking lots. The procession would stop at a predetermined stop to rest and pray.
