Parkview School Board mulls football coaching contract, van and academic software license purchase By Jeremy Gokey CORRESPONDENT

The Parkview School Board was busy at their November meeting approving a one-year contract for head football coach Bob Meyers, the purchase of a new ten-passenger van and the purchase of Illuminate academic assessment software. Parkview high school football coach Meyers was under review before being awarded a one-year contract by the school board. Parkview won the last football game of the season after a (0-7) start. Jim Burrell spoke during audience participation in favor of Meyers. Burrell commented on the lack of player accountability. Athletes missed many practices this year and the coaches were unable to hold the players accountable. There would not have been a complete team to take the field if players missing practice would have been held from playing that week. “In my mind the only option is if we can’t have kids held accountable to show up for practice, we cancel the game.” Burrell said. “A coach cannot coach their team if their team is not held accountable.” he said. Burrell stated that he supported cancelled games, citing peer pressure as a solution to athletes missing practice. The board convened into closed session for one hour and 45 minutes to review the performance of coach Meyers. Meyers was awarded the contract by a 4-3 vote. Board members Steve Haberman, Dianne Myhre and Don Bomkamp voted against the contract. Steve Lutzke presented for the purchase of a new ten-passenger van for field trips. The board approved up to $45,000 for the purchase of a new van. The current 2005 van owned by the district has over 200,000 miles. The van is not very reliable and can only be trusted within an hour from Orfordville. Lutzke asked for $40,000 for an eight to ten passenger vehicle to transport students and teachers to meetings and small group field trips. He stated the district would like to purchase a new van through Burtness Chevrolet, but Chevrolet does not produce a ten-passenger van. Burtness could sell the district a Chevrolet Suburban, which is within the price range and holds eight passengers. Lutzke stated the district is looking to other manufacturers for a vehicle that best suits the needs of the students. The board approved up to $45,000 for the purchase to cover the cost of the vehicle plus tax, title and license. Dianne Myhre raised a concern regarding the food service automated system policy during committee reports. The policy states “At the end of the school day, when the PJH/HS [Parkview Junior High/High School] student(s) has/have gone into a neg-

ative account balance, the student will be called to the Office to make a phone call home to let their family know money needs to be deposited in the lunch account.” Myhre wants a policy change to have the food service department take care of the calls home, citing the high amount of traffic through the office at the end of the day and to not involve the students in the collection of money. Lutzke stated that food service does make calls, and typically students are asked to call home because food service and the principals cannot contact the parents. Action could not be taken because this was a first reading of a reviewed policy. Parkview High School is offering new courses for next school year. Eighth grade students are offered Freshman Transition in place of Junior High Study Skills. There are additional advanced placement (AP) courses in Government and World History. Other new courses include Criminal Law, Protest and Change, and Robotics. Jennifer Bowers, Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, presented for the purchase of Illuminate Data and Assessment software package, which the board passed. Illuminate allows teachers to perform assessments on the students in real time and adjust the lessons to reflect how the students are learning. The software has been tested in the elementary and high school and there are nine teachers willing to train and utilize the software this year. These assessments through the software are in line with the learning standards. The software package includes a science assessment add-on. The board plans to take the cost from the textbook budget. Bowers also presented the 2017-

2018 student data assessment. Parkview utilizes FORWARD testing for elementary thru 10th grade, ACT ASPIRE for 9th and 10th grades and ACT testing for 11th grade.

UW-Extension Master Gardeners donate to Monroe Clinic Hospice Home Green County Master Gardeners in collaboration with the Monroe Clinic Hospice and Monroe Chamber of Commerce coordinated a Garden Walk event this past summer in Monroe to showcase six beautiful garden locations. Included in the Garden Tours were: • Marilyn Sandin-Ross and Bill Ross, who showed us a cottage style garden with raised beds for perennials and roses. Beds surrounded the house and back fence. There were window boxes, planters, hanging baskets and a vertical garden under a pergola. • Kathleen Rinear and John Jewell, exhibited a garden consisting of pe-

rennials and annuals that do not attract bees. The gardens enticed over 200 visitors who generously donated to the Monroe Clinic Hospice Home Garden fundraising project. At the recent Green County Master Gardeners Meeting, a check for over $2,500 was presented to Jane Sybors and Diana Boysen, representing the Monroe Clinic Hospice Home. The Green County Master Gardeners Association was formed in 2004 to provide Master Gardeners with opportunities for professional development and community service. Over 135 people have been trained since that time. The Green County Master Gardeners Association meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from February through October. Association officers for 2019 include Tamma McKeon, President; Tamara Schulte, Vice President; Linda Boll, Secretary; and Lynn Lokken as Treasurer. Anyone interested in horticulture and gardening is welcome to join the association.

Letter to the Editor Say NO to Wind Turbines Make your voice heard. Listed are a few of the problems: Setbacks: The taller the tower, the greater the setback should be, and should always be from the property line, never from the residential property structure. Property Values: Property values of non-participating landowners, even within a mile or more of turbines WILL decrease. No one wants to live anywhere near them. Jobs: No one in our county is going to be qualified for the few permanent jobs that’ll be available. They usually hire union workers from 50 plus miles away. Community Partnership: In other areas, at first the companies usually gave sizable donations to various non-profits, but after that, they were absent from the community. Studies taken show, contrary to marketing information, wind projects are a

Right now is that time between meetings, like the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and between Christmas and New Year when there is a lull. There is much to be done and time seems to wane quickly, but there still is a sense of a lull. Added to that is the anticipation and questions about changes that may be coming due to the results of the election. It’s that odd time between the election and when the changes of our elected officials take place. It is both a bit exciting and a bit awkward feeling. This time of year is also when some of the committee meetings change a bit to accommodate the holidays and office schedules. Upcoming meetings are listed on the Green County website so you can still attend and view agendas; please take special note of times and dates. The next meeting of the Green County Board is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. Should there not be enough business to hold the meeting, Jan. 8 will be the next meeting date. You can find the agenda on the county website when the meeting announcement is posted, about one week before the meeting. If you are ever unable to attend a committee meeting in which you are interested, you can contact your County Board Supervisor or a member of that committee so you can convey your thoughts. All contact information is on the Green County website at I represent District 24 - the Town of Albany and the southeast portion of the Town of Brooklyn. I can be reached at 608-371-9074 or eroth@ I look forward to hearing from you.

NET negative economic burden on their host community. And you know it’s really bad when even the landowners who agreed to have them on their property after a few years, begin to sue the developers. Why? Twenty-three farmers in Texas said wind developers “carelessly and negligently failed to adequately disclose the true nature and affect the turbines would have on the community and their own homes.” Sooner or later the truth comes out. We need to consider what the experiences of people in Texas, and other areas including those in our own state, have been before it’s too late. A friend and I drove to the Fon du Lac area and talked to people living there. Their stories will scare the heck out of you. They told us repeatedly, “DO NOT believe a single word these developers tell you!” The $10,000 to $14,000 they pay the farmer for each tower, is not worth what has happened to our people

and once beautiful countryside. Join us by attending the Green County Zoning Committee meeting on Monday, Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. in the old courthouse on the second floor. Also, plan to attend the Jefferson Township Board meeting in Juda at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12. It is held in the Juda Community Center. Add to all the disadvantages of having these 500-foot monstrosities in our county the fact that EDF Renewables, of the top six energy supply companies, has one of the worst records when it comes to the number of complaints they receive. They also have the most dissatisfies customers when it comes to how problems are handled. Does any of this look like a win-win situation to you?

Residences in the Town of Decatur are receiving delivery of their garbage and recycling bins starting this week and Badgerland Disposal begins curbside pick-up in January. If residents have not received their bins by Dec. 31, they are asked to contact Badgerland Disposal at 608-580-0580. Badgerland is preparing a welcome packet with information on the collection, including a calendar of collection dates. This is being mailed to each dwelling that receives a set of bins. Voters in the Town passed a referendum in November to allow the town to exceed the levy limit for one year to implement the curbside pick-up. Beginning with the 2019 tax bill, the charge for this pick-up is placed on the tax bill as a special charge. The Town negotiated a contract with Badgerland Disposal to provide the curbside pick-up for all dwellings in the Town. They are providing pick-up of large items, and will have the Town host an electronics drop-off for town residents to dispose of electronic items they no longer use. Information on this is forthcoming. The cost for the first year of the seven-year contract is $12.55 per month. The cost increases a small amount each year throughout the seven-year contract. Feel free to contact Badgerland Disposal or any of the Town Board members if you have any questions.

Parkview receives abundance of grants Parkview girls unable to conquer Argyle By Trent Scheidegger SPORTS CORRESPONDENT

The Vikings traveled to Argyle last Tuesday for their third game of the season. Kristine Mumm and Taylor Burrell led the way for Parkview through the first half as they combined for 14 points, having seven each. The Vikings trailed by three points at halftime with a score of 28-25. The second half was much of the same as Mumm and Burrell continued to be the driving force for the Viking offense. Mumm went a perfect four for four from the line in the second half, while Burrell had an impressive 9 points of her own. The Viking defense struggled to keep Argyle’s top scorers off the board as they managed to get three players into double digits. Parkview went 9 for 20 from the free throw line, while Argyle hit six out of eight on their own free throw attempts. Taylor Burrell finished with 16 points, as the leading scorer for Parkview. Kristine Mumm followed with an impressive 11 points, and Hunter Baars was close behind with 7 points of her own. The Vikings fell by a final score of 59-46 as they moved on to just 0-3 on the year. The Vikings hosted Abundant Life yesterday.

Lady Panthers fall short of win in overtime By Trenten Scheidegger


vided most of the teams offense as she had three first half points. Libby Beck and Payton Zurfluh had impressive starts for the Comets. Beck had 9 points in the half, while Zurfluh dropped 5 three pointers in the first half alone. The Comets had the game well in control at halftime, as they headed into the break up 41-13. Albany’s defense kept the Panthers in check once again in the second half; as Juda had to completely rely on Steinmann once again. Steinmann had 9 of Juda’s 13 points in the 2nd, 7 of which came from the free throw line. Steinmann practically lived at the free throw line last Friday as she went 11/20 on the evening. The Comets finished with an impressive 66-26 victory over the Juda Panthers, largely in thanks to the teams 6 three pointers. Montanna Steinmann finished with 15 points for the Panthers. Juda’s next highest scorer was Hannah Powers with 4. Paige Price had 3 on the night. Albany’s Payton Zurfluh, finished with 21 points and Libby Beck had 11. Brianna Dahl, Lily Brewer, and Sydney Mortaloni each had six points apiece. Montana Steinmann attempts a 3-point shot.

The Lady Panthers traveled to Madison last Tuesday to face off with Abundant Life, a Madison Christian School. Montanna Steinmann hit two three-point shots in the first half, which helped keep things close. Lady Panthers went into halftime down by 5 at 26-21. Hannah Powers provided the Panthers with five points in the first half. The Panthers evened things out in the second half. Juda lived at the line in the second half as Powers hit six free throws, while Maddie Smith and Montanna Steinmann each made three free throws of their own. The strong free throw shooting and a pair of three-point shots from Paige Price allowed the Panthers to erase the point deficit in the second half. They were unable to take the lead, as the teams headed into overtime tied at 48. The only Juda points in overtime came from a Maddie Smith triple. Abundant Life took advantage of some fouls in overtime, allowing them to put up 9 points in the extended period. Montanna Steinmann led the way for Juda with 16 points, Hannah Powers finished with 10, and Paige Price was close behind with 9 as the Panthers fell by a score of 57-51.

Monroe Clinic Hospice Pleasant View open house set for Dec. 7 Nurse receives DAISY Award Fred back home, Deb says Kelly’s visits, and the time she spent with Fred, made her one of the family. Sadly, Fred passed away in January 2018. Deb says, “We feel Kelly is so deserving of a DAISY Award. Anyone can go to school and earn a degree in nursing, but not everyone has a caring compassionate heart like she does. We feel God placed her in Fred’s and our family’s lives for a reason, an ‘angel’ to care for him here on Earth before he had to leave us.” The DAISY Award is a national initiative through the DAISY Foundation. The Foundation was established in 1999 in memory of Patrick Barnes, a 33-year old who passed away from an autoimmune disease. Barnes’ family wanted to use the foundation and the award to honor nurses for the extraordinary care they provide to patients and families every day. Kelly is one of three million nurses nationwide who represent the largest healthcare profession.


Kelly Johnson, a Registered Nurse with Monroe Clinic Hospice, was recently awarded the DAISY Award based on a nomination from a patient’s family. Kelly has been a Hospice nurse for almost three years. Kelly’s award nomination was written by fellow Monroe Clinic nurse, Deb Wolff of Lena, Ill. Deb described the relationship between Kelly, Kelly’s patient and Deb’s father-in-law, Fred, and the Wolff family. Deb says, “Fred instantly loved Kelly. Her smile won him over, besides her open, honest, positive nature that made him feel so comfortable.” Diagnosed with lung cancer in 2017, Fred had several months of chemotherapy but ultimately made the decision to end treatment “so he could enjoy the rest of his life with his family.” Kelly helped the family realize Fred’s wish to spend his last months at home on his farm.

CWD spreads on deer and elk farms as Wisconsin’s control efforts stumble WISCONSIN PUBLIC RADIO RELEASE

Rapidly growing numbers of cases of chronic wasting disease are appearing on deer and elk farms and hunting ranches in Wisconsin at the same time the state has pulled back on rules and procedures designed to limit the spread of the fatal brain disease among its captive and wild deer. Since 2013, when the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection began to let some captive deer facilities with infected animals continue operating, additional cases of CWD have developed within those facilities, according to interviews and documents obtained under the state’s Open Records Law. After Gov. Scott Walker announced “aggressive new actions” against CWD, lawmakers rejected an emergency rule to limit hunters from moving deer carcasses from counties affected by the fatal brain disorder. Meanwhile, enhanced fencing requirements are under consideration for captive white-tailed deer and other cervids including elk — but those proposals face heavy opposition from facility owners who say such a requirement is not guaranteed to halt CWD spread and could put them out of business. National CWD expert Bryan Richards said Wisconsin’s current approach of allowing facilities with CWD-infected animals to continue operating poses a serious threat to the state’s wild deer population, which has seen more than 4,400 infected deer since the first CWD case in 2002. Wisconsin now has more CWD-positive deer farms in operation than any other state in the nation, said Richards, who works for the U.S. Geological Survey at the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wisconsin. There are nine CWD-positive deer facilities still in business — seven of which have seen additional cases of CWD on their properties, according to DATCP records “The existence of CWD in these facilities constitutes a clear, persistent and likely escalating risk to the integrity of the wild deer on the other side of the fence,” Richards said. But a top DATCP official said the goal of the approach is to keep CWD contained and away from the wild deer population. Until 2013, herds at CWD-positive facilities in Wisconsin

were killed and the sites were disinfected. The new approach “is meant to mitigate risk of moving the disease ... outside of the fence,” said Amy Horn-Delzer, veterinary program manager. Horn-Delzer added that it is up to facility owners to manage the spread of the disease within their own properties. “We don’t want to put any other breeding farms at risk,” she said. “We don’t want to put the wild deer population at risk. So, that’s the risk that we look at.” The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is unclear whether this always-fatal disease can be passed to humans, although research has shown eating meat from CWD-positive deer can infect macaque monkeys. Signs of the disease, which affects deer and elk, include weight loss, stumbling, drooling and aggression. There are 380 registered commercial deer and elk operations in Wisconsin spread across nearly every county in the state. Some of them have been in operation since the 1970s and are generally broken down into two categories: breeding farms and hunting ranches. Breeding farms raise deer to sell to slaughter and to ranches that sell hunting experiences at fenced-in properties. They also sell deer to other breeding farms looking to introduce new genetic lines into their herd. The industry has long been the subject of criticism from some hunters who feel keeping and hunting animals behind a fence gives hunters an unfair advantage over their prey. There have been 300 CWD-positive tests at 24 deer farms and hunting ranches in Wisconsin, according to state records. Most of those have been found since 2013 — the same year that DATCP, which shares regulation of deer farms with the state Department of Natural Resources, began allowing hunting ranches and breeding farms to continue operating despite having the disease on their premises. Prior to 2013, all animals on commercial deer operations testing positive for CWD were killed. State law allows authorities to test animals and, DATCP PHOTO Brodhead Independent-Register if warranted, kill the herd to avoid the A map of 380 registered deer and elk farms and hunting ranches in Wisconsin shows 23 deer farms

and hunting ranches that have been infected with chronic wasting disease as of October 2018. A 24th farm was found to be CWD positive in November.

spread of disease. Owners can receive up to $3,000 in state and federal funding for each animal that is euthanized. DATCP acting state veterinarian Darlene Konkle said the agency has decided to take an individualized approach rather than a blanket policy of depopulating entire herds after detection. “Since 2013, we have been looking at each of these (CWD) positive facilities on a case-by-case basis and just looking at risk,” Konkle said. Konkle said her agency keeps close tabs on them. “In any of these cases in a positive CWD facility, they’re immediately quarantined as soon as we have confirmation of the disease,” she said. “So, they are not allowed to move live animals on or off. So, there’s that method of control that’s put into place immediately.” Hunting Ranch Open Despite 84 CWD Cases But there are exceptions to the rule. Wilderness Game Farm Inc. operates two breeding farms and a hunting ranch in Portage County, and hunting ranches in Marathon and Shawano counties. Since 2013, there have been 84 cases of CWD on the Marathon County hunting ranch called Wilderness North. Despite having more positive cases than any other captive deer operation in Wisconsin, the ranch continues to sell hunts priced at between $4,000 and $9,000 each, with an option for a “Gold Hunt” — no price listed — that promises deer with antlers measuring 200 inches, including all points. Emails from Wilderness Game Farm owner Greg Flees, then-DATCP state veterinarian Paul McGraw and program manager Horn-Delzer show mandatory quarantines issued after the 2013 detection allow Flees to move deer from his breeding farms, which had no CWD detections, to his hunting ranches. One of them, Comet Creek in Shawano County, has had six deer test positive for CWD since 2017. This April, McGraw and Horn-Delzer also approved Flees’ request to move deer that he said carried markers for genetic resistance to CWD to the heavily infected Wilderness North property to test whether they develop the disease. It is part of a research project in collaboration with a researcher from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. DATCP’s quarantine policy change was celebrated by Whitetails of Wisconsin, WOW, the state’s deer farming lobby group. On Jan. 21, 2014, thenWOW president Shannon Thiex alerted members that their lobbying on the matter had paid off. “Last week we felt we had a case to fight to get the herds in this state reduced from herd quarantines to individual animal quarantines,” wrote Thiex. “After some great teamwork on the quarantine issue we were notified today that DATCP would indeed be working this week to change these quarantines to individual animals only.” Flees is a second-generation deer farmer. He said his family has been breeding whitetails since the 1970s. Since then, Flees has become one of the best-known names in the deer farming industry both in Wisconsin and nationwide. Flees said when test results came back positive from his Marathon County hunting ranch, he did not believe it. “OK, we fenced in that property and we moved a bunch of these deer, we never took a deer from anywhere else other than this farm that’s never had a positive,” Flees said. “We put them onto that property, and once they were on that landscape, for awhile all of a

sudden we started getting some positives.” Flees said it is possible that CWD was already on the property or that it was brought in by scavengers, birds or feed products such as corn or alfalfa. A 2015 study shows that the misfolded protein that causes CWD, known as a prion, can be taken up from the soil into plants and infect deer. Another potential method of transmission is deer that escape from CWD-positive facilities. DATCP records show that 67 deer escaped from Fairchild Whitetails in Eau Claire County between 2009 and 2015, before the 228-head herd was killed. Among the escapees were two bucks shot by hunters that tested positive for CWD, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reported. Owner Rick Vojtik, who is also the president of Whitetails of Wisconsin, was paid $298,770 by DATCP for the animals that were killed; he told the Leader-Telegram the herd was worth about $1 million. In all, 34 animals tested positive for CWD. According to USGS figures, nearly a quarter of all deer farms that have tested positive for CWD nationwide have been in Wisconsin. Richards said the state set a precedent five years ago when it allowed Flees’ Wilderness North hunting preserve to continue operating after deer started getting sick. “So that was a very interesting change in philosophy and quite different to what had been done previously across the rest of the country,” he said. Emergency Rules Proposed, Then Dropped In May, Walker announced a series of actions aimed at slowing the spread of CWD. He called on DATCP to draw up an emergency rule requiring enhanced fencing and banning the movement of live deer from the state’s 55 counties listed as CWD affected, meaning either an infected deer had been detected there or within 10 miles of the county. The Republican governor also called on the state DNR to create emergency rules that would have banned hunters from transporting deer carcasses out of counties listed as CWD affected to non-affected counties. Walker issued his directives just before speaking to the Wisconsin Conservation Congress, the state’s official citizen advisory group on natural resource issues. At the time, he said the goal was to safeguard whitetail deer hunting. “We need to protect Wisconsin’s hunting traditions and long-standing heritage by working together to contain the spread of chronic wasting disease in deer,” Walker said. Despite that, DATCP’s citizen board, made up of Walker appointees, voted to take no action on the governor’s request for emergency rules. Now, the agency is pursuing the longer, regular rulemaking process to require double or enhanced fencing for elk and other non-whitetail farms and prohibiting farms from transporting live animals out of CWD-affected counties. The Natural Resources Board, also staffed by Walker appointees, did proceed with an emergency rule to require enhanced fencing, including a second 8-foot tall fence or an electric fence for whitetail deer farms. In October, the Legislature’s Republican-controlled Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules, which reviews agency regulations, voted to keep fencing requirements for deer farms but eliminated the DNR’s emergency rule that would have limited the movement of deer carcasses from CWD affected counties this hunting season.

While it survived the committee, the DNR fencing rule had already been amended by the agency’s citizen board to give the industry until September 2019 comply with the new regulation. That timing is significant because the emergency rule is set to expire Feb. 27, 2019. When DNR staff were asked whether that means deer farmers could simply wait until the rule expires to avoid enhanced fencing requirements, DNR policy initiatives advisor Scott Loomans said in an email that the agency is working on a permanent rule to avoid that. “We are working on a companion permanent version of the CWD rule, and the goal is to have that rule in effect before or very close to when the emergency rule expires,” Loomans wrote. “Yes, the longer period of time that people have to come into compliance, under the amendment, does make the timeline for the permanent rule more important.” The state DNR has estimated the total cost for all deer farms currently without double or enhanced fencing to be about $2.1 million. Whitetails of Wisconsin, whose members strongly oppose the requirement, has estimated the cost at more than 10 times that. Woods and Meadow Hunting Preserve owner Scott Goetzka of Warrens, Wisconsin, said the cost of complying is too much for him and other deer farmers in the state. “Because I feel this is politically driven — not science or veterinary science driven — two years from now, if they don’t like it or CWD keeps spreading, they’re going to come up with something else that you have to do,” Goetzka said. “They basically legislate you out of business.” Even if farms are required to install additional fencing, that may not stop the spread, Richards said. He noted that CWD has been detected in Wisconsin inside a double-fenced facility. “So, it’s pretty clear that even a double fence does not constitute a complete barrier to the movement of an infectious agent with CWD,” Richards said. “So, if that infectious agent can move from the outside into a captive facility across two fences, I see no reason to suspect that it could not move the other direction as well.” Counties Step In As the state debates how to slow the spread of CWD, some local governments in Wisconsin are taking action. This year, Bayfield and Douglas counties passed moratoriums that block new captive deer operations for one year while local officials study the industry and consider new rules. Al Horvath of Superior, a lifelong hunter and delegate to the Wisconsin Conservation Congress, said the moratoriums were written after a deer farm in Bayfield County was found to have been stocked with animals from a farm

Bryan Richards, an expert on chronic wasting disease with the U.S. Geological Survey, says Wisconsin’s decision to allow CWD infected deer farms to continue operating puts the state’s wild deer herd at risk.

that tested positive for the disease. Horvath said it has been frustrating to see the lack of cooperation between DNR and DATCP — which share regulation of deer facilities — in attacking chronic wasting disease. “It’s a state issue,” Horvath said. “They’re state entities. Yet, they’re each operating independently and acting like they’re only responsible for a certain part of it. They’re responsible to the citizens of the state for all of it. And if they can’t get together, if they can’t work with one another, they’re not going to work efficiently and get things done they need.” Horvath, who considers himself pro-business, said he understands that many families have poured their entire life savings into the operations. “I think that someone’s profit potential — their individual profit potential — is not sufficient to jeopardize a tradition and an entire population of animals,” Horvath said. “I just think it’s wrong.” Hunter Paul Boehnlein of Madison was registering two deer for testing for CWD on Nov. 17, the first day of the gun-deer season, at the self-service station in Fitchburg, Wisconsin. The young doe and buck were taken in Iowa County, which has been ground zero for CWD in the state. He favors double fencing for deer farms, adding, “I don’t really understand why people are farming deer in the first place.” Deer Farmers Seek Answers No matter how it got to his hunting ranches — or the state for that matter — Flees said he and other deer farmers in Wisconsin are looking to genet-

ics to combat chronic wasting disease. For the past year, Flees said he has been working with a researcher to breed deer with genetic markers that show resistance to CWD. Flees hopes in five years, he could have a resistant herd. “Let us deer farmers do our work, and if we nail this resistance thing, let’s figure out how the state can maybe do the same thing in their herd.” Other research suggests it could be quite a while until such answers are available. “We don’t know how the CWD prion proteins might change over time to influence both the infection and mortality of different genotypes and deer populations,” according to an article co-written in June by Michael Samuel, an emeritus professor of wildlife ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “There are still many unknowns that make clear predictions about the longer-term evolution of CWD resistance difficult.” Meanwhile, the spread of CWD across Wisconsin continues. On Nov. 15, another deer hunting ranch tested positive for the disease in Portage County, bringing the total number of facilities that have tested positive since 2002 to 24. “I think the challenge with CWD is it’s been found both in the wild and on farms,” said Konkle, the acting state veterinarian. “We don’t know which came first and, at this point, I’m not sure it necessarily matters. It’s a challenge for both our agencies that deal with farm-raised deer and wild deer to try to manage.

Albany receives funds for ‘Fuel Up To Play 60’ Albany was chosen to receive $500 to support its ‘Fuel Up to Play 60’ initiative. Albany was selected from several schools that applied for funding across the state to help them jump-start and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Funding for this competitive program is provided by the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. ‘Fuel Up to Play 60’ is an in-school nutrition and physical

activity program launched by the National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL), with additional partnership support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains) and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
