Reflections By Mary Friedel-Hunt
Slowing time down Yes, it is gone. I am talking about the month of June. Most of us are scratching our heads wondering where this month went. It seemed to disappear like a flash of lightning in the night sky — it comes and then it’s gone. And it won’t be long before we are saying this about the entire year. So why does time seem to go so quickly especially as we age? According to Ronald Riggio (Psychology Today), the early years are full of firsttime events: your first date, the birth of your first child, first big vacation, etc. First occasions are novel events and we tend to make more detailed and lasting memories of those first times. When we repeat the event, year after year, it is less likely to make a unique or lasting impression. We can observe the same phenomenon in a shorter space of time. For instance, the first couple of days of your two-week vacation seem long and leisurely, and the time goes slowly. You’re thankful that you have two long weeks of this. But, the next thing you know, it’s almost over and you are heading home! The key to slowing down the pace of life (at least psychologically): As much as possible, take advantage of new and unique experiences. When we go to the same places and do the same things, we don’t make distinct memories and time seems to fly by. So, if we want to see our lives pass more slowly, the key (according to Riggio) is to continually include first occasions which translated for adults would mean learning new skills, taking trips to new places, meeting new people, adding more exciting and new events to our schedules and more. Doing these things has a greater advantage, however. Including the new in our lives adds growth and keeps our brains from closing down. Doing this makes life more exciting and gives us meaning and purpose. These additions to our lives as we age do not have to be costly. They can be as simple as sitting at the edge of a river we have never seen before. They can be To FRIEDEL-HUNT, Pg. 3B

Adopted sisters reunite in Eagle River Editor’s note: The following is the story of two sisters who met for the first time in 62 years. They were both born in Eagle River and were separated in 1950, each adopted to separate families. Through ancestry.com, Lin Smith located her sister, Cherly Spade, last September and recently made that longawaited return trip to Eagle River to meet her sister. Her story follows.
___________ BY LIN SMITH SPECIAL TO THE NEWS-REVIEW
There are many types of journeys that people take in a lifetime, but few are as exciting or as fulfilling as a journey of discovery. The unknown factors which come to light in such a journey are incredibly tantalizing to one’s senses. The journey of discovery will most certainly awaken new and often raw emotions. At least that is how my own personal journey of discovery has affected me. At 2 years of age I was adopted; the story goes that I had been abandoned by my parents. I was found sitting on the doorstep, not of someone else’s home or a church, but at my own home. The local sheriff picked me up and took me to safety until arrangements could be made for my care. The couple who adopted me spent a couple of weeks fishing at a nearby resort every summer. They heard the story of my plight and it touched their hearts. They

Fast-forward to age 18 and my new journey as an adult. This journey was much more colorful and eventful, sadly not always with the best results, but I truly believe that “whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” as the saying goes.

I had always known I was adopted, but not many details were ever shared because of the unsavory circumstances from which I had been rescued. So now, on my own, I began my journey of discovery. Upon trying to enlist the services of an attorney to help me, the door was quickly and firmly slammed shut. Adoption records were sealed in my home state and I needed written permission from my birth parents to have them
unsealed. I didn’t have a clue who they were and no one I knew was talking — end of story. Well, not quite. I did not have the resources or expertise to launch a manhunt to find anyone from my past — Oprah Winfrey, Maury Povich and Montel Williams were not even around yet to help me.

Area veteran honored with burial at Arlington National Cemetery It was William Koski’s final wish to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery and, as a Purple Heart and Bronze Star decorated veteran of World War II, he had more than earned his right to be laid to rest in the nation’s most hallowed ground. Koski, born in 1923, was a lifelong resident of the shores of Smokey Lake, just east of Phelps. His service was held May 11, 2012. He served the U.S. Army from 1942-’45 and spent a large portion of his time as an airplane and engine mechanic in the Southwest Pacific Theater. His service included work on the glider planes of the Army Air Corps that were assembled with fabric-covered wings. Koski’s unit cleared and established runways and got the glider planes up and running as the sites were expanding for larger units and planes to come in. On several occasions they were ahead of the U.S. front lines and served as protection on the tank outfits. Koski was wounded in April of 1944 and carried shrapnel from that incident for the remainder of his life. Like many veterans, pieces of his wartime service never left him. Eventually, Koski was discharged with the rank of Tech 3. His love of the United States and democracy, combined with his sense of camaraderie, played a large role in his wish to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Koski’s wife, Joyce,

Local veteran William Koski of Phelps recently was honored with a burial service at Arlington National Cemetery. Koski made it
knew this was his wish and ensured it happened. “From the preservice meeting with the coordinator and Army chaplain until after the burial, the Arlington military staff was outstanding,” said Koski’s grandson, Josh Olivotti. “Respect, dignity and honor could be felt by all present, and the crispness within all words and actions were impressive beyond descrip-

and handwritten note presented by the Lady of Arlington are what truly personalized the service for the family.” The casket team performed the flag-folding ceremony and presented the flag to Koski’s youngest daughter, Molly. Koski was laid to rest in Section 36, Plot 503, among others who have served the nation.

Sisters: family journey leads back to Eagle River
Dankmeyer, Davis engaged
such a surprise that she disappeared from our lives as well. Evidently Grandma Minnie and our aunt were unable to handle the responsibilities of two demanding little girls, ages 2 months and 2 years, so they disappeared as well and eventually turned in Mom for abandonment. Mom spent nearly two years in prison on that charge and Dad was never heard from again. The story goes that the sheriff drove by and found that two small children had been in charge of the household for days and things were not going well. When he arrived on the scene, he found us alone — Jacqueline nearly starved, clad only in a diaper severely soiled and covered in flies. I, her big sister, valiantly stood guard like an ill-equipped guardian angel, not doing so well myself. The sheriff promptly whisked us away to safety. Jacqueline went to a local family where the plan was to care for her for a few days until a home could be found. Jacqueline was so dehydrated and malnourished she needed to be fed with an eye dropper and it took some time to get her healthy again. Jacqueline’s new mom struggled with the emotional drain on their lives and the worry of being capable of healing this little one’s life. There were times when she told the sheriff they didn’t think they could handle it, but he encouraged them to hang on just a few more days. Those few days, of course, became a lifetime of happy, healthy family memories and, along with two brothers, my sister grew up in a wonderful, loving home, saved from a harsh, lifethreatening beginning. Jacqueline got a new home, a new life, a new name and a new birthday. Jacqueline became Cheryl and her new name and birthday caused me much consternation in my search for her over the years. And she never knew I existed. I, on the other hand, was much stronger, although our time alone took its toll on me as well. My future parents were on a fishing trip at a nearby resort. Family has told me they went on vacation and came home with a daughter. My life was

changed forever, too. As for me, Theda Mae became Linda Lou, and I went from a starving, dirty, abandoned little girl to a healthy and well-providedfor child. Although life with my new family would not be as perfect as it seemed to those on the outside, I grew into a strong, independent survivor, ready to take on the world. On June 6, 2012, that full circle I mentioned came to a close. I was flying to the town I was born in to meet my baby sister, who never left her hometown for very long and always returned there. I have been across the nation and back in my travels and even had returned for yearly visits to Eagle River until I turned 18 and left home. I never knew I had a sister until nearly seven years ago. I never stopped searching for her and then in September 2011 I found her. What a journey of discovery this has been and in the morning I will give her a hug for the first time in 62 years and we will begin a new journey together into the future.

appeased. Thoughts of who, what, when, where and why plagued me throughout my adult life. Fantasies appeared and disappeared as I tried to fill in the blanks alone. My relationship with my adoptive parents deteriorated and communication ceased, but that is another journey all of its own and still has the final chapter yet to be written. Fast-forward once more to around age 38. Now a single mom of two delightful sons, I applied for a position with Motorola in Phoenix, Ariz. Due to the nature of the work, I was required to pass an intense background security check. One of the questions asked was the names of my parents. Another question was if they were my natural parents or adopted parents. Of course I marked adopted. About a week later, I received notice that I would have to provide proof that my adoption had been legal. Hmmm, how would I ever do that? I didn’t know any of the details. Needless to say, I needed to contact my adoptive parents for that information and they were highly insulted that I had revealed the family secret and reluctantly, with much harsh reproof, my adopted father provided me with the paperwork I needed. To my surprise and delight, the paperwork gave me my first clue to my past — the names of my birth parents. Those papers revved my engine and I began the next leg of my journey. After years in a maze of dead ends, I began to think maybe I had actually been delivered by that infamous stork we all have heard stories about. What a frustrating disappointment. I didn’t even know what nationality I was. However, my journey does have a happy ending. For the last six years I have spent many hours, days, weeks, months and a little money trying to find my birth family. Resources have so much improved through the years and the Internet has been like liquid gold when you are looking for answers. There are ancestry sites, genealogy groups and public records at your fingertips. Occasionally you need human assistance and there is an abundance of that also. I eventually got my adoption records unsealed because of a woman in the county clerk’s office in Madison, who interceded for me with the court system. Those records held a wealth of information and filled me with an excitement I can’t even explain. I am now 64 years old and most everyone from my childhood is dead, except one person. I have a living blood relative and she is my sister. Finally, in September 2011, I was contacted by another researcher who knew someone who had a very similar story. Her name was not Jacqueline, but the timeline, geographical location and some family names were all a match. It was worth checking out and I wasted no time in contacting that person.
It turned out to be my sister’s adoptive brother and we talked for about one and one-half hours. I spent most of that time answering questions from him designed to prove I wasn’t a fruitcake and I ended the call with a promise from him to contact me again if my sister wanted to talk with me. At the time of the phone call, she didn’t even know I existed. Three days later, her brother called me back to say she was astonished that she had a blood sister and, yes, she wanted to talk with me. What an incredible rush of emotions — joy, excitement, anticipation and fear. I had been looking for my sister, Jacqueline, for years, but her name had been changed to Cheryl when she was adopted and they had actually changed her birth date also. The main thing I’m really writing for is to encourage the reader who is on a journey to never give up. It may take some time (mine took 60 years), but you will feel such satisfaction, fulfillment and excitement. Any journey has twists and turns as well as mountains and valleys. There isn’t always a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Sometimes we just find a smug little leprechaun. But the journey itself helps us grow and learn more about others as well as ourselves. My journey of discovery is coming to a close, but a new journey is on the horizon and I can hardly wait to see what life has in store for me. Today I am on a plane headed to Eagle River. That probably doesn’t sound exotic or exciting to many of you, but to me it is an incredibly fantastic conclusion to a lifelong journey. I’ve heard it said that many things in life come full circle. Well, that certainly is the case in this instance. I was born in Eagle River in April 1948 to Jack and Rosella Sine. Jack had a rather uneventful past and was 17 years older than Rosella. She, on the other hand, was known to be sweet, friendly, had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off her back. She was also known to be a flirt and quite footloose and fancy free. So, when she and Jack split up in 1950, shortly after my baby sister, Jacqueline, was born, it was not

Jason Gensler of Three Lakes will teach water skiing and wakeboarding this summer at Chain-O-Lakes Water Ski School. —Contributed Photo
Hitting the water ___________
BY SONIA DIONNE FEATURE WRITER
Nineteen-year-old Jordan Gensler of Three Lakes was taught to water ski by family members at 5 years old. By age 6, he skied slalom, by 7 he was able to barefoot ski, and at 13, Jordan became an avid wakeboard enthusiast. As an instructor at Chain-O-Lakes Ski School for the past five years, Jordan passes on his expertise to students interested in improving their skills. After joining the Three Lakes Aqua Devils Ski Club in 2006, Gensler became an instructor at the ski school in 2007. He specializes in teaching wakeboarding, but enjoys teaching all levels of the sport. The school’s season runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Gensler is an American Water Ski Association-certified instructor, a thirdranked national wakeboarder, and is sponsored by Correct Craft, Ten-80 and SectWear Clothing. “Most people create their own bad habits in water sports, so that means going back to the fundamentals. Body position is often incorrect when someone first comes
to lessons,” said Gensler. “Though you may be in great shape, skiing is often tiring, usually due to bad posture.” At times while wearing cold-weather gear, Gensler’s in-water training season runs anytime lakes are ice free. “In winter, I kite board on Big Lake, downhill ski in the Upper Peninsula, then water ski in Florida during fall and spring,” he stated. Gensler attends wakeboard camp in Florida. He enjoys the personal challenge of learning more advanced wakeboarding moves such as inverts with 360 degrees or KGBs, which are back rolls with spins. He placed third at the national competition and was to compete in the world championships in Indianapolis last year, but suffered an injury, removing him from competition. “I’m still learning every day. I feel privileged. I can be on the water enjoying nature and what the North Woods has to offer,” Gensler stated. “Though I’m still trying to figure everything out, skiing will always be a part of my life.”
Hi-Pines Campground in Eagle River has added the Aqua Play Zone Water Park as one of its amenities. “We are very excited about the new Aqua Play Zone Water Park,” said owner Mark Weber. “It is the first water park in the area and is available not only to Hi-Pines campers, but to the general public as well.” “We have been receiving very positive feedback now that summer is finally here,” continued Weber. “Families all around are looking for fun activities they can do together that are financially doable.” “The Aqua Play Zone offers many inflatable toys for the kids, sandy beach and shaded areas for adults to relax, and all for a very affordable price,” concluded Weber. Hi-Pines has upgraded its pond by adding a new liner and installing a state-of-theart water filtration system. The beach has also been expanded to nearly 200 feet of sand with beach chairs and shade structures available. The 1-acre aquatic play area offers many inflatable toys ranging from a 60-footlong obstacle course to a 12foot-high jungle gym with a slide. The Aqua Play Zone is free to camping guests of HiPines. By purchasing a Fun Pass for $7 Mondays through Thursdays, and $10 for Fridays through Sundays, guests can enjoy all of the features of the expanded

Historical society to sponsor Send-off service scheduled for the Rev. Eli Shackelford On Wisconsin History series Three Lakes Evangelical Free Church will hold a service Sunday, July 1, to send off the Rev. Eli Shackelford and his family to a new ministry in West Jordan, Utah. The festivities will include a worship service at 9 a.m. with testimonies from those present about the impact of the Shackelfords, followed by a sermon from Pastor Eli, as he’s known by his congregation. There will then be an open-house social at Cy Williams Park from noon to 4 p.m. Shackelford came to the North Woods from North Carolina in the fall of 2004. With a degree in counseling and psychology and a professional background in counseling troubled teens, the 25-year-old said he was ready for a new adventure in a new place. With help from his wife, Lindsay, a Wisconsin native, Shackelford adapted quickly to the area, becoming involved in the Three Lakes School system and the lives of hundreds of residents. Over the past few years, a high percentage of Three Lakes youths have had contact with the Shackelfords and the outstanding youth ministry that grew up around them, according to Brian Thorstad, interim senior pastor. “The impact that the Shackelfords have had on the lives of kids from Three Lakes is incalculable this side of heaven,” he said. “Only time and eternity will tell how great an impact was made by the sacrificial living and giving of Eli and Lindsay.”
The Three Lakes Historical Society will sponsor its second annual On Wisconsin History series throughout the summer. According to museum curator and series organizer Alan Tulppo, the series received positive feedback last year. “This season’s presentations promise to be an engaging experience for all who attend,” he said. The series will feature local and regional historians who will deliver presentations on topics related to local
and state history. The series schedule is as follows: — July 11, History of the Wisconsin Labor Movement, 11 a.m. to noon in the Three Lakes Town Hall meeting room; — July 18, Using Your iPad for Historical Research, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the lower level of Demmer Library; — July 25, Lac du Flambeau Indian Boarding School, 11 a.m. to noon in the Three Lakes Town Hall meeting room; — Aug. 1, Whispers of the
Ancients (Native American Traditional Storytelling), 11 a.m. to noon in the Three Lakes Town Hall meeting room; — Aug. 17, Sam Campbell: Philosopher of the Forest, 6 to 7 p.m. in the Three Lakes Community Center. For more information about the On Wisconsin History series or the Three Lakes Historical Society and Museum, visit threelakeshistory.org or the historical museum, located at 1798 Huron St. behind Demmer Library.
The Rev. Eli Shackelford and his family will relocate to a new ministry in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. A special service will send them off Sunday, July 1. —Contributed Photo
Within a few days of the Three Lakes Independence Day celebration, the family will head west. After a couple of years of doing a variety of ministries as an associate pastor, Shackelford said he’d like to spearhead a new church plant in the Salt Lake City area under the direction of the mother church. “The members and friends of the Three Lakes church are hoping for a large crowd to give the Shackelfords a big send-off and join them in thanking God for his blessing of Eli
and Lindsay’s work,” said Thorstad. Three Lakes Evangelical Free Church is located at 1614 Highway 32 in Three Lakes. Cy Williams Park is located on Superior Street, just east of the downtown area and just north of the chamber of commerce. Lunch will be served at the park from noon to 1 p.m. Attendees can take swimming gear, lawn chairs and lawn games. For more information, call (715) 546-2000 or email email@example.com.

ST. GERMAIN/SAYNER Hiller, Christensen Capital expenditure budgeting discussed by Finance Committee named marshals WALLY GEIST (715) 892-3545
Newly elected town board member Marv Anderson, was appointed to lead the Finance Committee by Chairman Walter Camp. The first meeting was June 7 with members Boyd Best, Marion Janssen and Tom Martens present. John Vojta had an excused absence. “We should be meeting monthly to discuss the town’s finances so we can give good advice and counsel to the town board,” said Anderson. “The committee should be proactive rather than reactive.” “The committee is reactive when it is asked to find money or arrange loans to pay for necessary projects, and proactive when it is involved in general and capital expenditure
firstname.lastname@example.org 8122 MELODY DR. E., ST. GERMAIN, WI 54558
budgeting so that funds are available when needed,” continued Anderson. A review of the town’s invoice approval process and items needing clarification were addressed as well as how the committee could assist the town board when it comes to capital expenditure budgeting. Focus was placed on the role and responsibility of the Public Works Committee to maintain town property. Town Treasurer Janssen summarized the need for capital budgeting. “I’ve always looked at official maintenance as one of the biggest goals of our town,” said Janssen. “We may need a roof on this building in a few years. We have not set money aside
for a roof. We had a playground that fell apart and we had to spend money to build a new one,” continued Janssen. “We have a pavilion over there that was not taken care of and we had to build a new one. We have a red brick schoolhouse that was not taken care of and now it’s falling apart. Our town has been very lax in maintenance,” said Janssen. “Part of our responsibility is to maintain what we have and keep it in good repair.” Anderson agreed, “This is often a struggle in the public sector to find where the budget will be cut so other projects can be undertaken.” “The roads is another major area the town needs to
be cognizant of and keep up on if at all possible, within reason. We are the town and we need to ask how and when we can start to build up funds for repairs and maintenance, even if it takes years,” Anderson stated. “I don’t presume to think that we have the solutions, but we have to find ways to provide a start so we will have funds to do what needs to be done. It doesn’t make sense to me to borrow money every time we have to do something.” The committee resolved to meet monthly and placed a review of the room tax budget and expenditure items on the next agenda. The next meeting will be June 28 at 5 p.m.
Christensen and his wife, Hazel, donated the second sign for the St. Germain Golf Club, allowing it to be seen from both directions while traveling on Highway 70 in St. Germain.
Under new leadership, PrimeTimers has organized and will judge this year’s Fourth of July parade in St. Germain. Dual honorees have been selected as marshals for this year’s parade. Mark Hiller and Lee Christensen were recently chosen by the town board. Hiller, a local businessman, has been involved in community projects such as the Bike and Hike Trail in summer, and winter activities including the Snowmobile Radar Races in February. Christensen recently retired from service on the town board. He has served on the Golf Course Committee, the Cemetery Committee and other town organizations.
Marion Janssen, town treasurer, nominated Christensen for co-marshal of the parade. “For years Lee and his family walked the Independence Day parade route collecting donations for the evening’s fireworks display,” said Janssen. “He also placed containers in local businesses for fireworks donations.” “Lee worked hard to make the fireworks display one of the finest in the North Woods,” concluded Janssen.
