IRON COUNTY—County voters will decide the fate of several ballot proposals during the election taking place next Tuesday, Aug. 6. Two are county-wide proposals, and one is for most of its western half. All three are renewals of existing millage. There are no elected offices on the Aug. 6 ballot. MEDICARE MOE: One ballot proposal is to renew the 1.5 levy that is used for maintenance of effort payments and operations at the county Medical Care Facility, located just east of Crystal Falls. The present MOE millage expires after this year. The renewal is for five years, 2014 through 2018. It is projected to raise $725,112 in revenue in its first year. SENIOR CENTERS: The senior center millage is 0.27 mills and will be used to operate all the senior centers in Iron County. It would raise $130,520 in its first year. The renewal is 0.25 mills for operations and 0.02 mills for program administration costs. items available in the raffle. Tickets are $5 each, or five for $20, and can be purchased from Fair Association members as well as at the fairgrounds during fair weekend, Aug. 1518. The drawing will be held Sunday afternoon.

FP adjusts ‘perfect’ attendance By Peter Nocerini CRYSTAL FALLS—The definition of “perfect attendance� in the school handbook was tweaked slightly by the Forest Park School Board during its July 22 regular meeting. The change, which affects which students are exempt from taking final exams, takes effect this fall. Forest Park students are exempt from taking the final exam in a class if they meet three criteria: perfect attendance all semester (no absences, no tardies); a B or better (3.0) average in that class; and a B or better cumulative grade point average overall. The change? The words “all day� have been added to the perfect attendance rule. That means if a student leaves school for an hour or so for a doctor’s appointment or whatever reason, they will no longer be considered to have perfect attendance. As before, the only exceptions are if a student has been absent because of a school activity or the funeral of an immediate family member, including grandparents. Board Member Bill St. John, chairman of the board’s policy committee, explained the change during the meeting. “You wouldn’t believe the hours we put on this,� he

added. “I’m not joking.â€? • With installation of a new phone system nearly finished, Technology Committee Chair Kim Scarlassara reported that starting this fall, the school system will only be using two phone numbers: 875-3131 for the elementary, middle school and high school offices and 875-6761 for the business office. The 875-6869 number will no longer be used. • Board Member Lisa Bloomburg told the board that Forest Park has been approved for an extra six cents per lunch for submitting a meal plan that meets state and federal nutritional criteria. She also reported that the audit has been completed, and the district is waiting for the results, expected in September. Business office personnel were congratulated for their work on the school district’s budget. Superintendent Becky Waters said Diane Rostagno, who did the audit, was impressed by how quickly they were able to answer any questions she had. “They’re not sitting there like deer in headlights.â€? “Because of you people,â€? Board President Jim Nocerini said, “we’re keeping these doors open.â€? • Nocerini updated board members on the work on the gym bleachers and the new science room. Work on the latter project had been delayed to get a state inspection, but that was expected last week. Nocerini thanked Mike Hebert of Hebert Construction, “who’s really taken a personal interest in this school,â€? for his help. • Bloomburg said the district will be sharing a Spanish teacher with North Dickinson this fall and is still looking for a speech therapist. She also reported that meetings with the district’s non-teaching union will begin

on Aug. 2. Meetings with the teachers union will start in the second week of August. • The board voted to advertise for a new school forester to replace John Force, who is retiring. At its August regular meeting, the board plans to present Force with a certificate of thanks for his many years of service to Forest Park. • Marty Ness, whose wife operates a state-licensed group home day care facility, asked the board about the district possibly renting space to a private party who also operates a day care. Waters said the district has been talking with the private party for six to nine months. “They are trying to get licensed,â€? she said, “but as you know, a lot goes into this.â€? Ness said he is concerned about the district possibly using public resources to subsidize a private operation

that competes with other businesses. Ness said he had other questions for the board, and Waters invited him to the board’s August work session. In reply to a question from Laura Ness, Waters said there are 34 students expected in first grade this year, split into two sections. On other matters, the board: --Decided not to offer Michigan Works office space in the school building, mainly because of security issues— the building’s doors would have to be open to the public after a major effort to improve school security. Starting this fall, all doors to the school building will be locked during the day. Visitors to Forest Park will have to enter via the elementary entrance, which will have a camera and intercom. They must speak with office staff before they are “buzzed in.� Continued on page 5

The senior center millage expired in 2012. The renewal would fund the senior centers for four years, 2013 through 2016. WINDSOR REC AUTHORITY: The third ballot proposal will only be decided by voters in the city of Iron River and in Iron River, Bates and Stambaugh townships. It asks voters to approve a 0.5 mill levy for operation of the Windsor Recreation Association for two years, 2013 and 2014. Revenue from the millage will be used to operate and maintain the Windsor Auditorium at the Windsor Center (the former high school/middle school building on U.S. 2) and for adult and youth recreation programs based at the Windsor Center. It would raise $122,000 across the four units in its first year. Although the ballot language does not specifically say that the Rec Authority millage is a renewal, it is. The cities of Caspian and Gaastra are not members of the Recreation Authority, and their voters will not vote on this.

Tentative accord for WIC, teachers By Peter Nocerini IRON RIVER—A tentative agreement on a new labor agreement has been reached between the West Iron County schools and its teaching staff. School Board members learned about the agreement, which had been reached the week before, during an executive session held at the end of their July 15 regular meeting. No action was taken. The old contract with West Iron’s teachers had expired in June 2012. A state mediator was used during the negotiations, which began in July 2012. “There have been so many state law changes over the last two years,� said Superintendent Chris Thomson. “A lot of issues needed to be resolved due to the law changes that occurred in the state.� No details about the tentative agreement have been announced. That information won’t be released until after contract language is approved by both sides and the Education

He’s smokin’

Jordan Stanek stands near his pork shoulder during the Smokin’ on the Hill cook-off, held July 27 during Crystal Falls Summer Fest. The theme of the cook-off was smoked pork. Stanek and other competitors were judged by Charlie Steele from the MacDonald House, Ray Bortolini from the Raven’s Nest and Pat Sommers from Sommers Sausage Shop.

Association’s members ratify the contract. In March, West Iron County administrators ratified a new labor agreement with its non-teaching staff. That one runs through June 2015. • The board heard Finance Chairman Rob Possanza report that the district ended up spending 87 percent of what it had budgeted for 2012-13. “Everybody did a great job,â€? he said. Even with several bills still to be paid, “We’re still going to come around 92 percent of our expenditures, saving about eight percent. “That’s fantastic compared to years when we spend 95, 96, 97 percent.â€? Possanza said his committee is now producing a monthly report on how sinking fund revenue is being used. Also, a separate technology fund will be developed. • The district has kept the Community Schools in its budget since 2008, even though the program has largely been inactive. At the July 15 meeting, the board decided to disburse most of its $49,000 budget balance: $22,500 for technology and $22,500 for transportation/bus purchase The remaining $4,000 will stay in the renamed “community servicesâ€? fund, which still handles GED testing, Great Eight Games, day care and tot lot. “Most of it is money in and money out,â€? said Possanza. “It’s pretty much a wash.â€? • In other business, the board: --Heard a update from Thomson about the conversion of the former locker rooms to conference rooms in the elementary building. Work is in progress. --Approved the purchase of a new server and a larger storage unit from Teck Solutions at a total cost of $11,600. Thomson noted that the district is often near its storage capacity. --Approved a number of NEOLA policies.

“LEGALLY SPEAKING” by ATTORNEY HANNAH L. GOODMAN What is a “countable asset” for purposes of qualifying for Medicaid eligibility? A “countable asset” is an asset that is available and not part of the excluded category. Countable assets will be considered to determine your Medicaid eligibility. In order to qualify for Medicaid assistance an individual may only have $2,000 or less in countable assets. If countable assets exceed $2,000 during a month, the Medicaid benefits may be terminated. Examples of countable assets include, but are not limited to, checking accounts, savings accounts, mutual funds, nonhomestead real estate (hunting property or a lake cottage). An individual is allowed to maintain certain assets that are considered “excluded assets” for Medicaid purposes. Excluded assets are not counted as part of the $2000 limit.

Dear Editor, As my time as Miss Iron County nears the end, I have so many people to thank. I need to thank my sponsor Iron River Motorsports.

I’d like to thank everyone at the Iron County Museum for allowing me to help out at events. A big thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Bernhardt, you both made me feel so welcome at the museum.

Although the specifics of their audit-screening program remain a closely guarded secret, the IRS doesn’t hide its continued interest in those returns that take certain deductions (a home office, business entertainment, charitable contributions of property, hobby-type business, etc.) Proper return preparation and documentation will reduce unwarranted IRS scrutiny. For tax help, see us.

Strongman moves indoors Saturday CRYSTAL FALLS—How will the U.P.’s strongest men do under a roof? The U.P. Strongman Competition takes place this Saturday, Aug. 3, starting at noon, and for the first time the event will be held at the Nylund Food Center on Superior Avenue here. From its start, the event had been held on the Runkle Lake Park softball diamond, but fears of rain prompted organizers to put the event under a roof. Competitors in weightlifting events routinely chalk up their hands to remove moisture before they attempt a lift, and anything more than a drizzle would make a strongman event impossible to hold. Rain threatened the 2012 contest. It held off until after the event, but organizers decided not to risk an outdoor event again. The event is still open to spectators. The entry fee is $3, and all proceeds will be donated to the Forest Park football

program. Full concessions will be available. Competition will be in four men’s divisions and an open women’s division. The men’s divisions are featherweight (175 pounds), lightweight (200), middleweight (230) and heavyweight (over 230). The events include a farmer’s carry, an overhead lift medley, a grip roller, stone over bar-rock lift and a medley event—sandbag, Conan wheel and tire chain lift. The grip roller is new this year. This year’s tiebreaker will be a deadlift hold. A women’s bench press event will also be held. The weigh-in starts at 8 a.m. Pre-registration is $20, and the fee is $25 at the door. Competitors must be 16 or older—minors need parental consent. To pre-register or pre-try events, contact Jim Butler (875-4266), Bill Santilli (8756020) or Lee Nylund (8754296).

Victor Albiero

WEST BEND—Victor G. Albiero, 84, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, July 21, 2013, at home. He was born Nov. 13, 1928, to Italian immigrants, Frank and Ida Albiero in Crystal Falls. Vic’s parents had both passed away by the time he was 13. As a result, Vic worked numerous jobs while growing up but still found time to participate in numerous sports and was an All-State running back in football. He graduated from Business School in Milwaukee and moved to West Bend to start his career as a salesman with Enger-Kress Leather Company in 1949, served in the Army for two years, then returned to Enger-Kress until he founded Rewards, Inc. in 1974. Vic married Genevieve Heppe on Jan. 15, 1955. They have six children: Tom (Mary Ann) Albiero, Peggy (Brian) Tornow, Greg Albiero, Jacci (John) Gambucci, Kris Boehmer and Rick (Jacque) Albiero. While raising their family in West Bend, he developed a strong commitment to community as evidenced through his philanthropic spirit with many local organizations. He loved the Lord, golf, fishing and the Green Bay Packers. He was a loving husband to Gen for 58 years, unfaltering father and proud grandfather of 14 grandchildren, and a true patriarch. As the “rock” of our family, he will truly be missed. Vic and Gen are charter members of St. Frances Cabrini Parish where Vic served as a Parish Council Member and Finance Committee Chair. Vic also served as a charter member of the Lions Club; founding member of the West Bend Little League and helped build the original field; Founding Member and First President of the Kettle Moraine YMCA, Manager for the Partner of Youth fund drive and co-chaired two expansion fund drives; Ambassador and Board Member for the Chamber of Commerce; Board of Directors, Chairman of various Committees for the West Bend Country Club; Member of the Evans Scholarship Committee; President and Member of the West Bend Noon Rotary Club where he started the Seafood Fest as a fund raiser for the West Bend Riverwalk and other community projects; President of the National Premium Sales Executive Organization; Board Member of the American Cancer Society; President of the Board of Advisors for the West Bend Art Museum; Member of the original Fair Park Committee; Member of the United Way Board; Supporter of Casa Guadalupe; and involved in various committees with St. Joseph’s Hospital and local schools. He was the recipient of many honors and awards, including Washington County Fair’s “Vic the Chick”, a “Real Hero” by the local Red Cross, and the Clifford Nelson Volunteer leadership award. He ultimately hoped he served as an inspiration to young people “to pick a cause and give it their all.” Vic is survived by his wife Gen and their six children; 14 grandchildren: Will (Katie), Casey, Sam, Paige and Max Albiero; Kelly, Kara (Rett Deinlein) and Jeff Tornow; Alyssa, Joe and Gina Gambucci; Matt, Tommy and Allie Boehmer; brother Frank (Judi) Albiero; sisters-in-law, Dorothy Hoelz, Joan Schellinger and Gerry Albiero; and brother-in-law Luke Heppe; and many nieces and nephews. Vic was preceded in death by his parents, Mary (sister) and Jim Corbett (brother-in-law), Angelo Albiero (brother), Ralph Schellinger (brother-in-law), Val and Dick Heppe (in-laws), Agnes Heppe (sister-in-law) and Reuben Hoelz (brother-inlaw). A Mass of Christian Burial to celebrate Vic’s life was held July 24 at St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church. A private burial was held the following morning at Holy Angels Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in memory of Vic Albiero to St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Church (529 Hawthorn Drive, West Bend, WI 53095), The Cottages at Cedar Run (113 Cedar Ridge Drive, West Bend, WI 53095) or Albrecht Free Clinic (P.O.

John C. Lewis One or the other must leave, One or the other must stay, One or the other must grieve, That is forever the way. That is the vow that was sworn, Faithful ‘til death do us part, Braving what had to be borne, Hiding the ache in the heart, One howsoever adored, First must be summoned away, That is the will of the Lord. One or the other must stay. -UnknownMy 54 years with John are treasured memories that are forever in my heart. The family of John Lewis is very appreciative of the cards, emails, and gifts that were received. We would like to thank Paul Jacobs for making a difficult time easier. We would also like to thank Father Greg for his comforting words, and a thank you to the St. Agnes choir and organist. To all of the special women who prepared food and those whom served the luncheon after the service, we thank you.
