PHS Athletic Director named head football coach

Pulaski News

Jerad Marsh has been named the new head football coach at Pulaski High School. Marsh, who will be replacing Jed Kennedy, also serves as the school’s athletic director, and will take over as head coach immediately, working with the football coaching staff to coordinate the off-season strength and conditioning program. Although Marsh served as the Red Raiders baseball coach last season, he has an extensive football background as both a player and coach. In high school, Marsh played for Seymour High School under legendary coach Bill Collar. In college, Marsh was a starting linebacker for the University of Wisconsin- Stout Blue Devils, and, as  team captain, he led the team to a conference championship during his senior year. After college, he began his coaching career at West DePere High School, where he served as the defensive coordinator under Hall of Fame coach Bill Turnquist. “From my experience in coaching football with Jerad at West DePere and with working with him in Pulaski, I couldn’t be more pleased with the selection of Coach Marsh as the person to lead our football program,” said PHS Associate Principal Dexter McNabb. “Everyone that knows Jerad understands he will coach with enthusiasm and passion.  Our football players and the student body have the utmost respect for Mr. Marsh. I am very excited for

the future of our program, we have a great staff and I am honored to be a part of it.” Following his stint at West DePere, Marsh coached running backs and tight ends at the University of Minnesota- Duluth before his family moved to Tomahawk, where Marsh taught technology education and served as an assistant football coach, and head baseball coach, for two years. In 2009, Marsh accepted the Athletic Director position at PHS. He will continue to serve as the school’s head baseball coach this spring until the end of the season, but plans to remain active in the baseball

P-News Point of View The pros of SnapChat

by Jordan Stiede A revolutionary photo sharing application called Snapchat has taken the young adult population by storm since it was first introduced in July 2012. The appeal of Snapchat is compared to an Inspector Gadget cartoon where the photos you snap and share with friends disappear from the App in just seconds. Co-founder Evan Spiegal claims on the App’s website that Snapchat was created in response to “emergency de-tagging of Facebook photos before job interviews and photoshopping blemishes out of candid shots before they hit the Internet.” While Snapchat has quietly amassed millions of users and processes more than 30 million messages a day, it has not so quietly amassed critics. Nevertheless, it is a brilliant app that allows young adults to be spontaneous with their friends. College and high school students have fun sending ridiculously funny pictures to their friends. Snapchat provides a degree of freedom by letting users share fun photos without much fear of reprisal. Used properly, sending “selfies” (a picture an individual takes of him or herself) promotes unguarded, carefree communication between friends.

In blog post on the Snapchat website, promoters express that “there is value in the moment. Great conversations are magical. That’s because they are shared, enjoyed, but not saved.” Instead of the contrived, self-promoting Facebook messages, Snapchat allows real communication. In addition, the app is so much easier to use than picture messaging. First of all, every phone plan does not have picture messaging so one of your friends might not have the chance to view your pictures. Also, it usually takes awhile for a picture to send via messaging, and in Snapchat you can do it by just three clicks of a button, making it almost instant. Finally, in Snapchat, your pictures disappear so your friends won’t be able to show your embarrassing pictures to anyone else. Yes, this brings up the issue of sexting, or the sending of inappropriate images via photo messages. The privacy policy of Snapchat states that they “cannot guarantee that the message will be deleted in every case” and “messages therefore are sent at the risk of the user.” I won’t argue that Snapchat can make sexting a lot easier and I will agree that people have done sexting through Snapchat, but irresponsible and immature people who sext would find a way to do it without

Snapchat. Take, for example, all the celebrities and proathletes that have been caught, such as: Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Tiger Woods and Brett Favre. Unfortunately, users who are determined to indulge in risky behavior hardly need Snapchat to achieve their goals. Since the advent of digital photography, kids run the risk of getting themselves in trouble. The safeguards haven’t changed. Parents and children must be educated to understand the risks any digital communication. Truly, there is no such thing as a permanently self-deleting text. Snapchat does alert the sender if the recipient takes a screenshot to save the image. Fortunately, the young adults who just want to send funny appropriate pictures to their friends obviously outnumber the people who take advantage of this App to sext. Perhaps said best in a blog post celebrating its first year anniversary, Team Snapchat shared a vision of wholesomeness. “We believe in sharing authentic moments with friends,” it read. “It’s not all about fancy vacations, sushi dinners, or beautiful sunsets. Sometimes it’s an inside joke, a silly face, or greetings from a pet fish. Whether or not you agree with the explosion of social media, Snapchat is here to stay!”

The cons of SnapChat

by Steven Semandel Snap Chat. While users of this new popular smartphone application will tell you it’s harmless, don’t be fooled. There’s a reason why this App has already been banned at Pulaski Community Middle School. Snap Chat gives senders of pictures the control and guarantee that their sent photo will magically disappear one to ten seconds later. There are two fallacies in that guarantee, though. The first is that it can’t really disappear. (Does anything on the web truly ever disappear?) The second is that users can take a screen shot of the photo when it’s displayed between one and ten seconds, and save that photo that was perhaps meant to not be saved. As the mainstream media is starting to report, multitudes of teens have encountered problems, or trouble, or both, after posting inappropriate photos of themselves or others through SnapChat. With the amount of teens who have phones, and iPods, capable of

taking photos and posting them to the internet, SnapChat’s popularity has virtually exploded since October of last year. However, as a teacher, something bothers me even more about SnapChat than the possible, and likely, exchange of sexually inappropriate photos. Many high school students confess to snapping photos of unknowing classmates and teachers in class. While the advent of the mobile device has put a twist to morals and ethics or snapping secretive pictures of someone, SnapChat only raises the bar, daring users to take risky photos of people who may not want their photo taken. SnapChat not only encourages users to take photos of others without their permission, but is based almost solely on that notion. The design that all pictures sent through SnapChat are meant to disappear gives the sender a sense of total control -- the ability to take incriminating,

or damaging, photos, to let someone know they exist, and then to take it away from them. The ethic that this evokes is more similar to blackmail than entertainment. For me, even the notion of taking someone’s picture without their knowledge is wrong; to do so and disseminate it with the ability to dissolve the image’s existence is cruel. And of course there is the idea that these pictures simply “disappear.” Although I cannot uncover any fine print that discloses that SnapChat actually logs all the deleted photos, I wouldn’t exactly trust that they aren’t recoverable. If someone actually SnapChatted a crime, I can’t believe that the makers of the app, if warranted, would not provide authorities with those photos. SnapChat could have been a fun idea. But with the alreadyexisting problems of photo ethics and inappropriate use of cameras on mobile devices, SnapChat is one App that should be set to disappear in about two seconds.

What is SnapChat? • A smartphone application that appeared in the Apple App Store in October of 2012 • Allows users to send pictures to other Snap Chat users • Allows users to control how long the recipient can see that photo, from 1-10 seconds, before that photo “disappears” forever

State encourages residents to e-file tax returns The Wisconsin Department of Revenue (DOR) recently launched the official start of the individual income tax season. Revenue officials are encouraging individuals to file their tax returns electronically before the April 15 deadline to get refunds faster. “Our mission is to make taxpaying easier, and e-filing is a great way to make sure it is done quickly and correctly,” said Secretary Richard G. Chandle. “So many people do business online today, and that is why we work so hard to make e-filing simple and easy. When you e-file, you get a confirmation that we received your return, and you can get your refund in just days.” Individuals that owe taxes can also use direct withdrawal by e-filing their taxes now, and then choosing a date to pay their taxes on or before April 15. Similarly, those who are receiving refunds can get their refund deposited directly into their bank account within days. Residents can access the DOR’s free e-filing service for state tax returns from its secure, confidential website 24 hours a day, seven days a well, by visiting the DOR website at The items needed to e-file taxes include: • Federal income tax return • All documents about income received during the

year, including W-2s and 1099s. • Legal names and social security numbers of everyone included on the return • Charitable donations • Property tax bill or rent certificate, if claiming the Homestead Credit • Bank account information for direct deposit or withdrawal Those that need assistance filing their tax returns can call 211 to find a Volunteer Tax Assistance (VITA) or Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) site in their area. VITA/TCE sites help low-to-moderate income residents, seniors, veterans and those with disabilities prepare their tax returns for free. While e-filing is the easiest, more secure way to file income tax returns, individuals that choose to file on paper can print off the forms by visiting www. and clicking on forms. Paper forms are also available at most libraries and DOR offices. Individuals should also be aware of some of the tax law changes that may impact 2012 income tax returns, including: • Medical Care Insurance Deduction: Individuals may deduct up to 100 percent of the amount paid for medical insur-

1. CALL TO ORDER: Board President Townsend called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. in the Library at the Pulaski High School. 2. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE: The Pledge of Allegiance was recited by all present. 3. ROLL CALL: Board members present: Barb McKeefry, Trina Townsend, Bob Skalitzky, Pam Denzer, Mark Wernicke, Chris Vandenhouten.

CITIZENS’ FORUM 5. STUDENT SCHOOL BOARD REPRESENTATIVE’S REPORT - None 6. BOARD REPORT- Trina Townsend – Great concert at ABVM this last weekend, sports doing great. Barb McKeefry – had lunch at PHS yesterday and it was great. Mark Wernicke – Strategic Directives (handout) Should we add a 5th directive (letter E on handout)? Mel Lightner – May be a good time to discuss all Strategic Directives at the board level. Add to February agenda. 7. SUPERINTENDENT REPORT – Shared brief intro to kindness campaign. Breaking Ranks – High School Reform Executive Summary – looking at providing the best learning experience for all of our students. More to come. 8. PAY BILLS- Wernicke moved, Denzer seconded, to approve and pay the bills as presented. 6 voting aye, 0 voting nay, motion carried. 9. MINUTES- Skalitzky moved, Wernicke seconded, to approve Minutes of the Regular Board Meeting (open and closed session) held on December 5, 2012. 6 voting aye, 0 voting nay, motion carried. 10. PERSONNEL REPORT – None 11. NOVEMBER BUDGET REPORT – We have received our commercial insurance renewals for 2013. There are large increases in the prop-

erty and the workers compensation policies. Additionally, the dividend paid on our workers compensation premiums will be reduced from 40% to 27% for a $25,000 reduction in revenues. The commercial insurance budgets will be overspent by $7,600. 12. FOOD SERVICE – For the first two months of the year, food service revenues have dropped by 8.6%. Our % of free and reduced lunch students has dropped by 2.5% and that accounts for some of the lost sales. The biggest change is in the implementation of the new federal regulations limiting the number of calories that can be served in a week. It appears that the federal government has acknowledged the problems with the new regulations and will begin allowing school districts to serve more protein and grains. I expect participation to increase with these changes. 13. REFERENDUM PLANNING – Dr. Lightner shared continuing work gathering information related to a possible April referendum and asked for the Board’s thoughts and ideas. If the board wants to go to referendum in April, the January 16 board meeting is the last regularly scheduled board meeting to approve the referendum question. Will be discussed again at the January 2nd meeting 14. CHARTER SCHOOL UPDATE – Tom Krause gave an update on Explore Charter School planning including Master Contract between the District and Explore; an outline of the roles of PCSD Board, Explore Board, District Administration, Explore Staff, etc. Information can be found on our website. 15. INDEPENDENT HEARING EXAMINER FOR EXPULSION HEARING(S) – Dr. Lightner shared three options: 1) Hold expulsion hearings following pre-expulsion meetings then expulsion hearings with a quorum of the board. 2) Stipulated expulsions to develop agreements with these individuals that the board cannot change. 3) Use an attorney as an Independent Hearing Examiner at a cost of roughly $4,000 to hear the expulsions as a representative of the board. Board would like to meet with all students in expulsion hearings. Administration will meet with students and families prior to hearings to develop recommendation. 16.

PHS drama profiles

Adam Morgan

by Madison Vendenberg Adam Morgan, a senior at Pulaski High School, is performing in this month’s reduction of “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” portraying the role of Trevor Graydon. This is his seventh year participating in musicals, as he has taken part in a performance every year since he was in sixth grade. Morgan enjoys acting, doing impersonations and challenging himself during musicals. “My favorite part of the musical is social interaction I have with the other students,” said Morgan. Outside of musical, Morgan is part of the school’s marching band, pep band and concert band, and enjoys playing paintball in his free time. Although he does not have plans to pursue drama after high school, Morgan will be attending the University of Wisconsin- Madison next fall where he plans to study astrophysics and music, while playing the sousaphone in the Badger Band.

Kayla Adams

by Madison Vendenberg Kayla Adams, a Pulaski High School junior,will be part of the ensemble for this years musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie.” This is her fourth musical, and she says that some of her favorite elements of the production include the music, choreography, and how upbeat the show is overall. Despite all of the things she likes about performing, she says the opening moments of a performance are her favorite. “Usually [during] the beginning of the show, when the curtain opens and you feel like you are in that place and time zone,” Adam said. Adams is also a part of the Pulaski High School band, the cheerleading team, student council and jazz band. When she graduates, Adams plans to pursue nursing or music education with hopes of becoming a band or choir teacher.

4K/ PEEP registration begins Beginning next school year, Sunnyside Elementary School will serve as a PEEP location for the Pulaski Community School District. The PEEP program is a collaborative, community approach where preschool programming is conducted in private care centers and selected parochial and public schools located throughout the PCSD. Each of the classes has a Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction licensed teacher, and an adult assistant teacher. A child is eligible for the PEEP program if they are fouryears-old by September 1, 2013. The program is designed for the year preceding fiveyear-old kindergarten entrance. Registration for the 2013-14 school year begins on Thursday, February 7. Parents can register by visiting the district website, at to enroll. The district is also holding a walk-in registration on February 7 in the PACE conference room from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. With the start of the 20132014 school year, families living within the PCSD can choose from seven different PEEP locations throughout the district: Polka Tots, Hillcrest Elementary, Peaceful Beginnings, Assumption BVM School, Sunnyside Elementary, Fairview Elementary and Glenbrook Elementary. Students attend the program for a morning or afternoon session. (Exact times vary depending on location.) Transportation is also provided for PEEP students who attend the site in their assigned area. Child cares before and after PEEP classes are also offered at all of the district sites, except for Hillcrest and Fairview Elementary Schools. For more information about Pulaski’s PEEP program, visit the district website at www.

Model classrooms/cont. Continued from front page Community Middle School; and Katie Titler, Pulaski High School World Language. Students in these classrooms continue to learn the curriculum as they did before, but they use technology in a variety of other experiences to further enhance learning. First graders in Malchow’s class practice their writing, spelling and basic math facts using a variety of apps as well as learn together via instant messaging with a classroom in Texas. Eighth graders in Mills’ class are learning math together by demonstrating their work using a variety of apps and then posting this work to their class Schoology account for feedback from their classmates. High school students in Titler’s Spanish classes are using the technology to practice real world speaking skills and see and hear real world experiences in Spanish speaking countries. Technology allows for so many experiences that could not be possible without it. It provides students different ways to reinforce learning, access to a wealth of information online, and real world exposure beyond our classroom walls! Not only is this program a success in the teachers’ eyes, but also the students and parents.

“Technology changes the way I learn because if I don’t know something, I can just look it up, helping me learn for myself,” said Crystal, a current ninth grade student. Pulaski parents have also been pleased with the results of the model classroom initiative. “The model classroom helped reach kids on every level of learning. It helped my child to be responsible with the technology we have in our home. Overall, my son’s year was outstanding- he probably learned and retained more because of the way learning was presented,” said parent Tiffany Rondou. More than ten school districts from throughout Wisconsin have already visited PCSD’s model classrooms to initiate similar programs in their districts, and the district is extremely excited about this award. “The success of this program is in the teachers’ time, dedication and passion for teaching as well as the students’ engagement in their learning,” said PCSD Instructional Technology Coordinator Amy Uelmen. “We look forward to finding ways to implement these successful instructional practices with technology into every classroom so all students can benefit!”

Pulaski businessmen to Stage Sixth Annual ‘Hometown Days’

Metal Shop Juniors Gary Raymakers and Allen Hansen proudly stand behind their feed cart. The cart will be put to use on one of the boy’s farms. As Juniors in the Metal Shop, the boys may choose a varied number of projects.

The sixth annual “Hometown Days” will be staged in Pulaski on December fifth, sixth, and seventh. It is being held for three days to give the people a better opportunity to shop at their convenience. The stores will be open Thursday evening to give the people a chance to visit all the businesses. Save your next issue of the Pulaski News, it might have a lucky number on it. This will permit you to carry home one of the prizes which will be offered by the Pulaski merchants. A special edition “Hometown Days” will be printed by the Pulaski News Staff. It will indicate the three day bargains offered by the businessmen. There will be 5,000 copies of the paper in circulation, which will be mailed to all residents of the Pulaski area. The printing will be done by the newspaper’s regular printer, the Shellman Publishing Co. of Oconto Falls. The printer will also number each paper. It is not known what number they will begin with, but they do keep track of all spoiled and torn copies. If a disinterested party assigns the winning numbers, then these numbers are distributed to the participating merchants so that each prize has a number. “Hometown Days” provides an opportunity to do Christmas shopping. This year more prizes are being offered than ever before. All the businessmen are enthused. The following comments by a few Pulaski Merchants pertaining to “Hometown Days.” Lloyd Wielgus, own of Wielgus Clothing Store: “The people seem to be very enthusiastic. It has been good in the past and I hope it will be a success this year.” Mrs. Gene Gajewski, Gamble Store: “I think it is good for the town and it brings many people in to shop. I am all for “Hometown Days.” Roman Goska, owner of Goska Shoe Store: “There are a lot of good bargins during “Hometown Days.” I think it is worthwhile for the people to come in and take advantage of these bargains. I hope we have a good successful turnout.”

Pulaski’s zip code announced Our five-digit zip code is 54162 postmaster Jose Homel announced today. “Everyone in Pulaski will use this zip code on all their correspondence to reduce the chance of mis-sent mail,” Postmaster Joseph Homel said. Zip code, the Post Office Department’s revolutionary new system of improved mail dispatch and delivery, goes into effect on July 1. Postmaster Joseph Homel stressed the importance of all citizens of Pulaski learning this city’s zip code and using it in their return addresses on all correspondence. In answer mail, he said, zip codes taken from return addresses on incoming

mail should be used. “The zip code is literally the last word in mail addressing,” Mr. Joseph Homel said. “It should follow the city and state in addresses.” He cited this example of the proper use of zip code: Joseph Homel, U.S. Post Office, Pulaski, Wisc, 54162. The new zip code plan, Mr. Joseph Homel said, for the first time will permit the Post Office Department to short-cut repeated address reading. “The address on mail must be read as many as eight or ten times by postal employees, to get it to the

proper destination,” Mr. Joseph Homel said. “Each handling slows the process of mail dispatch and adds to the opportunity for human error. With zip code, an employee needs to only glance at the code to know immediately to what national area, state and post office the letter is destined and to speed it on its way, cutting up to 24 hours off the time between deposit and delivery.” Mr. Joseph Homel said that when zip code is full swing, the United States will have “the most modern system of mail delivery and distribution in existence.”

Raiders win last game, Romp over Octono Falls 72-53 The Pulaski Red Raiders gave Oconto Falls their thirteenth setback of the season February 22. The Raiders finished the regular season in seventh place in the conference with a 7-7 record along with Oconto. Sturgeon Bay and Oconto Falls are in last place with a 1-13 record. Pulaski netted 17 points in the opening frame, nine of them by sophomore Dennis Karcz, to lead the Panthers by ten points. Second quarter scoring was a draw, as both teams scored 16 points and the Raiders led by 10 points at the half.

The beginning of the 3rd quarter saw Oconto Falls quickly disperse the Raiders halftime lead and momentarily pull ahead by one point. From this slow beginning Pulaski shot back to an eleven point lead at the end of the quarter. The Panthers were out-scored 19-11 in the fourth frame and Pulaski took home a 72-53 victory. The scoring honors went to the Panthers Doug Ferdon with 21 points. Four Raiders scored in the double figures, Jim Parker, 14, Tom Olszewski, 14, Roger Karcz, 14, and Dennis Karcz, 13. The Raider high rebounder was Dennis Karcz with 12.

Pulaski Girl Wins Twirling Contest Marlene Santy a 4th grader from Pulaski Grade School won a Baton Twirling Contest on the 27th of April. Santy’s parents Mr. and Mrs. Robert Santy think it is a thrill for a girl of Santy’s age to win a contest. The Baton Twriling Contest was presented by the Catholic Womens Club of Green Bay. A total of 9 girls in the advance group participated in which Santy won first place. Miss Jane Peot of Little Suamico is Santy’s teacher.

by Laura Cortright On February 9 and 10, Northwood Ski Trails will host the 2013 Wisconsin Nordic Ski League State Championships in Rhinelander. Hosted by the Northwoods Nordic Ski Club for the first time in 2007, the competition is set up as a pursuit-style race and is open for high school and middle school cross-country skiers who registered in late January of this year. Four students from Pulaski High School,who are members of the Northwoods Nordic Ski Club, will race in the championships: seniors Kyler Berg, Joel Egelhoff and Jake Egelhoff and freshman Liz Slaby. For the PHS skiers, the Wisconsin Nordic Ski League State Championships is only one race of many. As long as snow covers the ground, Berg, the Egelhoffs and Slaby practice and compete, shooting for one goal: qualifying to compete in the U.S. Junior National Championships. “Some of the races are at night, so the track looks really neat with all of the lights,” Berg said. “When you’re racing, you don’t really get to look around you much because you’re too busy concentrating on the race itself.” If interested in cheering on Berg, the Egelhoffs and Slaby in the 2013 Wisconsin Nordic Ski League State Championships, the address is as follows: Northwood Golf Club, 3131 Golf Course Rd, Rhinelander, WI. The organization encourages spectators to bring their cameras and cowbells.

Marsh/ cont. Continued from front page youth program into the future. “Our goal will be to compete for the conference championship every year and to make deep runs in the playoffs. We want to be playing on the turf in Camp Randall in November. My staff and I will also use the sport of football to build outstanding young people of character who will be positive contributors to the communities they live in,” Marsh said. According to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mel Lightner, Marsh has had a positive effect on the district’s students, staff and community members and the Red Raiders are excited to have him serve as their new head coach. Marsh, his wife, Libby, and children Jack, Ben and Eddie, reside in the Village of Pulaski and intend to remain in the district for many years to come.

Raiders take sixth, fall short to Bay Port by Laura Cortright As schools from across the state battled on the gym floor in January 26’s Pulaski Invitational, the Red Raiders performed strongly among the sixteen-team field. Teams like Oconto Falls, Bay Port, Luxemburg-Casco and Peshtigo all competed at the meet, and all brought their best game to the field. Wausau West took first place with a 202.5 point total, followed by Kaukauna, which finished with 177.5 points. Pulaski ultimately scored 128.0 points. “We ended up sixth, and we were in some pretty good company with the five teams ahead of us,” said head wrestling coach Terry Manning. “All five teams that placed ahead of us are highly ranked in their divisions. We’re building. We’re getting there.” Sophomore Bradley Prentice, after pinning Freedom’s Mason

Manteuffel and Peshtigo’s Austin Maye, brought the crowd to its feet during the first-place match against Port Washington’s Zach Smith. Prentice won the 113-pound title, defeating the state’s second ranked wrestler in Division 1 with a 13-4 major decision. Kasey Caelwaerts, a PHS sophomore who has a record winning percentage of 0.970, took second place, scoring 23.00 team points, and senior Alex Caelwaerts won the third-place match over Hortonville’s Jared Luker. Other top Pulaski finishers included senior Michael Frehse, junior Max Mijal, sophomore Hunter Micolichek and freshmen Taylor Brancefield and Morgan LaPlant. On January 31, the varsity team also competed against Bay Port for the FRCC conference crown, but came up just short, of the title with a final score of 32-23. The wrestlers dueled passionately, though, and three matches came down to overtime. Despite the loss, many wrestlers were able to pick up wins for the team. Next up for the team is the WIAA Regional Tournament at Green Bay Preble on February 9—which, according to Manning, is what the team has been working towards all season. “This is the time of year where dreams come true,” Manning said. “We have more kids who are buying in and working their tails off for an unknown.”

This drawing shows what the building the New Life Community Church hopes to build.

New Life Community Church to hold Polar Plunge fundraiser All donations made in February to be matched by donor up to $100,000

In an effort to raise funds for their new building, members of the New Life Community Church in Pulaski will be holding a polar plunge. The event will take place on Sunday, February 17, at 12:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Pulaski Community Middle School. Members of the TriCounty Fire Department will provide a pool, complete with a platform for plunging. The public is welcome to attend and participate in the event, and lunch will be available for purchase. To heighten the stakes, New Life’s leadership recently entered into a friendly competition with the TriCounty Fire Department and Pulaski Police Department.

The goal is for the fire and police departments to raise a combined total of $1,000 for the building campaign. If members of the departments accomplish the goal, they do not have to take the plunge. However, if they do, Pastor Bob Wied and some of New Life’s leaders have to do it. Some of the church’s Sunday school teachers have also joined the challenge with a friendly “boys against girl’s penny war.” The losing team of this competition also will have to plunge. Church members have been involved in numerous fundraising drives to help build a new facility, including selling scrip cards, picking up recyclables at Lambeau Field

and even clearing sticks from a planning field. During the month of February, however, every dollar raised for the building fund will be matched by an anonymous donor—up to $100,000. “We are willing to do just about anything, within reason, to raise funds for our building campaign,” said Pastor Wied. With the new building, church leadership hopes to expand their community outreach programs. “Our goal is to meet every aspect of need for the people in our community and surrounding areas,” said Pastor Wied.

Pamperin/ cont.

With life insurance, the benefits live on.

Continued from page 14 Pat was a Master Gardener and an ardent supporter of the Marion Day Care, the Marion Area Historical Society and the Marion Public Library, many times serving as a board member or officer. She read to and mentored hundreds of young people, passing along her enthusiasm for reading and learning to all of them, but not before her son Tim became her equal as a reader of all types and styles of literature.  All flowers and plants were enjoyed and her passion for them inspired her son Todd to two green thumbs and Master Gardener status as well.  Unknown to many, she was technically the first banker in the family, and was proud to say that her son Tom came home to follow in her footsteps.  Finally, travelling over the past twenty years with Dick was especially enjoyable, as destinations were chosen based on interest, many times read about in a book, and did not require Dick to attend a conference or seminar as part of the trip.  Pat was always genuinely interested in others and made those around her comfortable as she would listen to them.   However, it was the young people she enjoyed the most, remembering them with a simple greeting, a kind note or sometimes just a caring hug to remind them of their importance to our world.
