Letters to the Editor Policy does make a difference By Cinthia Davey | Kendall I am sure you remember when our local area roads were filled with small family farms all up and down them in every direction. Hundreds if not thousands of families made a living off the land. What a wonderful way to raise a family. Policies in the 1980s directly destroyed small family farms. It was the death knell of a whole way of life. The early 1990s just completed it. Our elected officials walk hand in hand with policy that affects us all. Policy determines whether we have decent schools or not, decent roads, and access to healthcare. Policy decides if your job is valued or not and thus how you are treated. Policy determines whether we have water, and not only water, but clean water. Policy decides if we the people are more important than greed, if we have clean air to breathe. Policy decides if we will cherish or destroy wildlife and our environment. Policy determines what sort of future we give to our children and children yet to come. People say, and even some of our elected officials to whom I have spoken say, “Oh, there is nothing that can be done; we cannot change things.” Nonsense. Of course we can. Policy creates wealth — and poverty. It creates the middle class and working poor. Policy allowed the housing bubble and the reckless, greedy behavior of Wall Street to bring down our economy and many people’s lives. Policy decides whether they are punished or not. Policy decides that the taxpayers will bail them out. Policy creates winners and losers. Policy also creates the “entitled and privileged” few, and the rest of us. Those “entitled” few feel that they should get federal taxpayer money (Wall Street, big oil/ gas subsidies, Dow, Monsanto, Haliburton, etc.) and huge tax breaks. Policy allows big-money, offshore tax havens legally. It even outsources our jobs away. Policy allows this all. Policy decides if the polluters who are the looters of “our resources” will pay cleanup costs, or if it will fall on the taxpaying citizens again, while they make out like thieves, without a thought about their impact. They privatize their profits and socialize their losses for us taxpayers to pay for their gain. Some policies are beyond local, state and federal policy and are global, but this in itself shows how seriously important our local, state, and federal policies are. Why did our state government currently have the CDC suppress the data on lung cancer in Wisconsin? Are the rates going up? Is our air compromised now by the sand mining industry, by particulates and silica? How can there be a “gag order” on the CDC? Why did our state government say the DNR cannot consider the cumulative impact of wells and surrounding wells on the environment when it comes to high-capacity wells? The sand mining industry came running in, seeing big bucks. Wisconsin is open for business. Now we hear they were unprepared for all of the rains that came this spring, and therefore all of “their” polluted flocculated silica silt ran off in our streams, wetlands, fish

OPINION spawning areas, etc. They claim the rains were “historic and sustained.” While they were sustained, they were hardly historic. We also know that the flocculent compound called polyacrylamide, composed of acrylamide, a known carcinogenic used in their sand mining process, could be leached in the groundwater. Policy makes a difference, and we should always look at its implications. We can demand a change on the local level, on every level. These ways can move into your own neighborhood before you even know it. No one is exempt. They expect us all to sit back and let them decide the future of this whole area without a ruckus from anyone. If you speak to any of them, they claim ignorance, or hold it as suspect and dismiss you. Don’t let them. Hold them accountable. They are accountable! Policy that puts money before lives is bad policy. We the people deserve better.

Coulee Region needs to address heroin problem By Sandra McAnany Coon Rapids, Minn., and Norwalk taxpayer In 2009, heroin was almost unheard of in the Coulee Region. There were the rare cases, but most of us thought that this was a big-city type of drug and it could never be a problem here. Fast forward to today. Heroin and opiate addictions are continuing to grow throughout the Coulee Region. We all pay for the price of drug addiction through higher medical costs, costs for the justice system, treatment for addiction and the human costs. In recent years, there have been so many near misses, changed lives and deaths due to this devastating drug. Overdose deaths in which heroin was a primary or contributing factor rose about 50 percent last year across Wisconsin to at least 199, based on a survey of county coroners by the Gannett Wisconsin Media Investigative Team. Wisconsin averaged 29 such deaths from 2000 to 2007. In the Coulee Region, opiate-related deaths have included a father whose body was dumped in the woods, a young 20-year-old lady from Jackson County, a couple from Tomah, a young man from Sparta, and a man from Trempealeau County. The cycle of addiction, death and broken families is continuing. There is not an easy fix for the heroin problem in the Coulee Region, but together the community can make a difference. Preventing individuals from becoming addicted to painkillers can slow down the rate of heroin addiction in the future. Community education can increase the awareness of heroin addiction and build a support system. Treatment resources are needed for addicts. And, finally, additional resources are needed within the criminal justice system to address the dealers and crimes committed by drug users. One of the main gateways to heroin use are prescription painkillers. Until recently, Wisconsin residents could have a legitimate prescription, become addicted and then doctor shop to continue using. Recently, Wisconsin became the 45th state in the country to require doctors and pharmacists to put information about painkillers into a computer database. Within the first two weeks, over 4 million prescriptions were uploaded into the system. Pain medication represents approximately 20 percent of all prescriptions in Wisconsin.

Finale for Ontario reading program set for Aug. 20 By Laurie Erickson | Ontario librarian The finale for the Ontario Public Library children’s summer librar y program will be Tuesday, Aug. 20. Children are invited to join us as we wrap up a summer in the garden; the event will feature stories, games, crafts and food. Let’s try to measure those sunflowers one last time.

SSS The Ontario Public Library Community Garden Harvest Fest will be Saturday, Sept. 14, from 2–7 p.m. We will offer kids’ activities, such as planting bulbs and painting pumpkins, plus a lefse-making demonstration, music and food. A big pot of vegetable soup will be cooking, along with bread and beverages, but bring a dish to pass, and we will have a feast. We will have a zucchini cook-off, so plan to bring your favorite zucchini-anything recipe, and we will taste and rate it. Please bring enough for everyone to have a bite. We will even give a prize for the recipe that

people judge to be the best. The event will be offered at no charge, so bring your family and friends and celebrate the garden.

SSS The garden now has a Free Little Library thanks to Mike Austad. He made a cute little library that is near the garden entrance on Garden Street. It’s filled with books, and you are invited to take one or leave one.

SSS Lauren West will offer a program on canning for beginners at the next Joy of Gardening Evening, which is set for Monday, Aug. 19. A potluck will begin at 5 p.m., and the program will start at about 5:30 p.m. Next week, Lauren will demonstrate fermentation for beginners.

August 15, 2013 Unfortunately, Wisconsin Statute 450.19 does not require physicians to review the information before prescribing pain medications, and individuals using pain medications will continue to slip through the cracks. Each of the counties in the Coulee Region has a different philosophy for drug courts and varying treatment resources. The best-documented drug-free treatments are the therapeutic community residential programs lasting three to six months, but these are not cheap. Will we continue to pump our tax dollars into more incarceration and ongoing health costs, or will we invest into programs to help addicts make lifelong changes? Could a regional inpatient opiate treatment center make a difference? Another critical missing piece to deal with the spike in heroin usage in the Coulee Region is the resources within the criminal justice system. Heroin has caused a spike in criminal cases, but district attorney staffing levels have decreased, falling from 444 county-level positions in 2002 to 429 in 2012. According to a recent analysis conducted by the Wisconsin State Prosecutor’s Office, 215 additional prosecutors are needed statewide to keep pace with caseload. Based on this workload analysis, Monroe County is the most short-staffed in the state and has 534 criminal complaints filed per prosecutor. Other counties in the Coulee Region are also struggling with high caseloads. We can have the greatest police and investigations, but nothing gets filed in court without the DA staff to process each complaint. With additional staffing, district attorneys could have time to ensure each plea bargain for a drug offense included appropriate treatment and to go to trial for more cases. While each DA is dealing with hundreds of cases per year, public defenders have a cap for the number of cases they deal with. Heroin is affecting individuals, families and communities. Together we can make a difference. What will you do to help turn the tide?

Wang deserves credit for leading movement to revise dress code By Geraldine (Withrow) Zitzman | Tomah Hats off to Jessica Wang for taking a stand on dress code in the Norwalk-Ontario-Wilton School District. Jessica deserves a lot of credit for trying to promote moral standards, self-worth and self-respect. This also is part of education, also for parents who allow their children to wear such. As far as your president: of all people of the board arguing against the dress code because of changing fashions. I don’t think taxpayers or parents are as interested in fashion as they are in higher moral standards for their children. I would also like to add that only commonsense earrings should be worn, plus marking up your body tattoos also should be discouraged. You have a great school located in a beautiful setting of the Kickapoo Valley. Hopefully everyone will get behind Jessica in promoting high moral standards for the N-O-W School District. The principal, according to the County Line, is going to form a committee that will spend several months reviewing the dress code. You already have a superintendent, principal, school board and staff members. Is it that big of a deal to upgrade a dress code?

Kendall Public Library to celebrate assistant Mary Gernetzke’s birthday By Lynette Vlasak | Kendall librarian The Kendall Public Library will host an open house to help library assistant Mary Gernetzke celebrate her birthday. The open house will be Friday, Aug. 23, during regular library hours. Stop by for cake and punch and to wish Mary a happy birthday.

SSS The next book club meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the library. This month’s book is Leif Enger’s “Peace Like a River.” It is the story of a father raising his three children in 1960s Minnesota.

Elroy Public Library reading program wraps up By Mary Waarvik | Elroy librarian Congratulations to everyone who participated in Elroy’s summer reading program. We had a lot of fun reading, swimming, watching movies, working with crafts, playing bingo and — oh, did I mention? — reading! We have also had some big winners. Each year the reader in each category who chalks up the most minutes of reading time gets a grand prize. This year, our winners were Josh Cilley in the preschool category, Agnes Worley in the first- through fourth-grade category, and William Worley in the fifth- through eighth-grade category. Each will have a choice of a fishing trip, an airplane ride, a motorcycle sidecar ride, or a hair styling. In addition, Ethan Howe and his family won four tickets to the Packers’ Family Fun Night at Lambeau Field. The event featured fireworks, team scrimmage, snakes, dunk tanks and more. Of course, everyone who participated is a winner, not only by winning the bingo prizes and taking part in activities, but also by keeping up on reading skills during the summer. It will make school time easier this fall. Congratulations to all of our readers.

Church listings are published the last week of the month. Please have changes and DGGLWLRQVWRFKXUFKVFKHGXOHVWRRXURI¿FHE\WKHWKRIWKHPRQWK:HZHOFRPHQHZV of special church events, speakers, celebrations, etc.

South Ridge News By Alice Brandau

T

hey came home from Canada with their limit of fish. Wednesday was an especially thrilling day. Northerns and walleyes were hitting, and they were reeling them in. My husband Bob accompanied our son Gale, his wife Ardis, their daughter Amy and her family and our great-grandson Ryan to Ten Mile Lake, an hour north of St. Ignace, Canada, spending the week there. Meanwhile, I’m home taking care of business and doing my own thing. My sister Jean Neitzel of Beloit came Wednesday. She, Joan Belsky, Darlene Martalock and I enjoyed the hat luncheon at Wilmer Pearson’s beautiful home Thursday. My vintage hat, once owned by Bob’s mom, received a prize. Kudos to Wilmer for a unique way to provide support for the Ontario Public Library. We left for Arcadia, Wis., on Friday morning, taking grandson Gunner with us, as he was meeting friends who operate a large chicken farm there. It was a time to take a drive along the Mississippi, have lunch overlooking the river in Fountain City, Wis., and then head east to Arcadia, where we visited the Veterans War Memorial, Ashley Furniture and some of the displays for the town’s arts festival, which was the next day.

News from St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church on South Ridge: A get-well card is on its way to Vernon Memorial Hospital in Viroqua. Stan Buchholz suffered a broken hip last week and had complications after the first surgery. Therefore, a second surgery occurred. We hope he’s on the mend now. Graveside services were held for Darrell Verweibe at the South Ridge Cemetery after Sunday morning services at St. Matthew’s. Pastor Neumann officiated, and the Wilton American Legion provided the military farewell. Vacation Bible School is in full swing at St. Matthew’s,

and a final program will be Friday evening.

SSS

Barb Heinz helped take care of grandkids last week while son-in-law Leroy Olson had surgery, and later in the week, he and Kristina enjoyed the preseason Packer game Thursday night. Bob and Barb attended visitation for Eric Leis on Thursday evening. Luke, Kristi and Wyatt Ferries visited Aaron and Hazel Pasch on Thursday. On Sunday daughter Sheila, Cassie and granddaughter Addisyn stopped for a visit. David and Anita Kaus of Coleman, Wis., came for the weekend and met with daughter Alana, who was on her way back to school in Connecticut. Doris Beier received a surprise call from her sister Gloria of Fitchburg, Wis., on Monday morning with an invitation to have lunch with her at Perkins in Tomah. And don’t we agree that it’s one of the good things we have in life. Frank and Darlene Martalock were among the 28 people who attended the Martalock/Steinke reunion at the Wilton Park on Sunday. They also attended the 50th wedding anniversary of Morlan and Shirley Sebranek at Glenwood Park in Kendall on Saturday afternoon. The weather was ideal for the celebration, which brought a large crowd. The Prairie Dogz band provided great music, and food and fellowship made it a special day for this couple. We three sisters enjoyed it, too. Great-grandsons Cole and Connor are spending a few days with us. A given is chocolate chip pancakes and scrambled eggs for breakfast, and Cole, who has an obsession with lawnmowers — the kind you ride, of course — has mowed the lawn several times. A busy weekend is coming up: the popular mystery theater will be at the Round House Park in Kendall on Friday night, a large consignment/small-animal auction will be on Saturday, and a large benefit auction for 1-year-old Ella Leis Brown will be in Cashton on Sunday. And that’s it for Aug. 13, 2013.

Wilton library to host out-loud Shakespeare reading By Gina Rae | Wilton librarian Did you know that groups all over the world are devoted to reading Shakespeare out loud and in public? Weird, right? Too weird for Wilton? Probably not. The Wilton Public Library will host a completely amateur reading of “Hamlet” on Sunday, Aug. 25. If you would like to take a stab at reading aloud with us, please call the library at 435-6710 for the time and place and to check out a copy of the play. Note: This is not a performance; it is a participatory event.

SSS

The Wilton book-discussion group will meet Monday, Sept. 9, to discuss “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth Wein. This book was an honor book for the Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature in 2012. Don’t let the words “young adult” make you

turn up your nose. This book is a riveting, sometimes brutal story of two girls during World War II. The girls are pilots: One is captured, and the other is on a run for her life. Copies are available now in the library.

SSS The Wednesday morning playgroup will meet at 10 a.m. on Aug. 21 for a crazy good time learning about monkeys. There will be no playgroup the week of Aug. 28.

SSS The library is requesting your best zucchini recipe. If you have one that you could share, please email it to wiltonlibrary@wrlsweb.org. The more zucchini that the recipe uses, the better. If you’d like to see our favorite recipe with green tomatoes from last week’s submissions, stop in the library.

South Side News By Myrna Fauska

B

ecause I can’t think of any insignificant babble to begin the column this week, I’ll start with the news from the east end of the neighborhood. Shorty and Shirley Waddell went to the Tomah High School auditorium Thursday evening to hear the Army Band perform. At the top of Zirk Hill, Evelyn Zirk reported that she “celebrated the third anniversary of her 90th birthday” on Tuesday. In honor of the occasion, Frieda Jacobson and Nancy McCullick took her out to lunch at the Back Door Café in Cashton. Later in the day, cousin Myrna arrived with a card and a small gift. On Thursday, Jerry took his mom to Tomah to visitation for Art Thompson at the Torkelson Funeral Home. On Friday, Roger Stanek called on Ev and Jerry, and on Sunday, Heather Vlasak picked up Ev for church as Jerry headed west for a fishing trip. Louise Kaus came from Barron, Wis., to spend the weekend with us at Fauska’s Funny Farm. Because her mother-in-law’s maiden name was Zirk, as was mine, my husband Dave, Louise and I picked up Evelyn on Saturday morning and drove to Ochsner Park in Baraboo, Wis., to connect with a bunch of our cousins at the Zirk family reunion. On Sunday, Louise treated Dave and me to the sumptuous buffet at Club Chaparral after church. Debbie Parkhurst of Lexington, Ky., and Erin Root of Indianapolis made their annual trip to Debbie’s folks Jim and Mary on Saturday. Joel Yoakum, along with Allyson and Carter of Sycamore, Ill., spent Saturday and Sunday with Grandpa and Grandma Parkhurst and their cousins. Also on Saturday, Candis Warner of Texas and Doug and Kathy Parrish of Janesville visited. Prior to the weekend arrivals, Jim and Mary attended Eric Leis’ funeral at Mount Pisgah Wesleyan Church near Ontario on Thursday. On Sunday, Ginger Parkhurst came from Lone Rock, Wis., to see her extended family. On Monday, Lynette Vlasak went to Portage, Wis., to have lunch with three former coworkers from Westfield High School. On Wednesday she, along with Sally Dana, Pat Ellsworth, Sharrie Brockhaus and Susan Hammershoy of the Sit ‘n’ Knits group at the Kendall Public Library, took a fieldtrip to Ewetopia Fiber Shop in Viroqua and had lunch at the Driftless Cafe. From there, they went to Kevin and Patsy Alderson’s Otterdale Store near La Farge. On Thursday, Lynette and Sally joined Donna Gosselin, Helen Zuhlke, Arlys Zellmer and Aunt Irene Smith of Tomah at the Ontario Public Library Hat Luncheon. Then, on Friday, Denise Murray accompanied Lynette and Sally as they met Lisa Goostree for lunch in Baraboo, Wis. Chip and Mary Marty headed northwest Thursday and on Friday attended the Green Bay Packer game at Lambeau Field. When they got home Saturday, they went to Norwalk, where their daughter Layla showed her expertise at the pedal pull, winning first place in the 4-year-old class. Her cousins Reese and Olin Zellmer of Janesville also competed, and Lynette and Sally were there to help cheer the kids on. One of God’s nicest blessings is the gift of family and friends. As you read this column each week, you can see how blessed our neighbors are as they share our lives with loved ones. Of course, most important is our love for His Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior. Because of His life, death and resurrection, we who put our faith in Him will enjoy the fellowship of our loved ones for eternity.

Backtalk

By Karen Parker | County Line Editor

arlier this summer, the Ontario ambulance roared out to peel another motorcyclist off Wildcat Mountain. It’s amazing how often folks, usually those from Illinois flatlands, underestimate the treacherous topography of the Kickapoo Valley. And that is in the summer. Imagine how well they would do on the ice-covered roads of winter. We have evidence that navigating Wildcat Mountain has been a challenge for quite some time. The June 9, 1929, issue of the Norwalk Star carries a headline, “Another car accident occurs near Ontario,” implying this news offers little surprise. In this case, five trucks from Milwaukee, all of them loaded with fruit, were traveling west on Highway 33. “The first truck lost control on a curve this side of the Nels Manley farm.” That immediately brings to mind a horrendous picture of five trucks loaded with fruit plunging off the side of the mountain and creating a giant fruit salad at the bottom of a ravine. But, no, only the first truck went off road, and it was saved from disaster when it got caught on a few butternut trees. If one added a little ice cream and whipped cream, one would have the makings of a sundae. The butternut trees saved the driver from certain disaster, the newspaper astutely observes. Alas, the driver of the second vehicle never missed his companion until arriving in Ontario. The writer is silent on the fate of vehicles three, four and five. For all we know, they may yet be at the foot of the mountain, surrounded by rotting fruit. Dennis Hubbard of Norwalk, who knows I harbor a passion for old newspapers of the local area, brought me this issue of the Nor walk Star. One could read it at the Monroe County Local History Room on microfilm, but that is not quite the same as carefully turning those yellowed pages of 80-plus years ago. June 1929 was the calm before the storm. Ray Riegels ran 60 yards the wrong way in the Rose Bowl, handing
