Karlen Family to host Green Co. Breakfast on the Farm May 26 The 2018 Green County Breakfast on the Farm will be hosted Saturday, May 26, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Danance Karlen Farm, located at W4876 County Road C, Monticello, Wis. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $7 for adults (ages 11 and older), $4 for children 5 – 10 years of age and children 4 years and under are free. This year marks the 39th edition of this annual event, featuring a delicious farm breakfast including Yodelay Yogurt, live musical entertainment by the Jimmys and fabulous educational displays, including a special bovine reproduction services area, sponsored by Stateline Veterinary Services. The Green County Agricultural Chest organizes the celebration with generous support from area businesses and individuals, including Platinum Sponsors, Badger State Propane, Colony Brands, Compeer Financial, Green County Ag Chest, Greenwoods State Bank, Hycite LLC, Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Yodelay Yogurt and busing sponsors, Bank of New Glarus/Sugar River Branches, First Community Credit Union, First National Bank and Trust, Town Bank Monroe, Wisconsin Bank and Trust Monroe and Woodford State Bank Monroe.

The third annual Mr. Parkview was held on Friday, April 13 in the JR/SR High Commons. Ten young men vied for the title of Mr. Parkview.

The candidates each performed a dance routine either solo or with their partners. Sewing was the mystery challenge. Each contestant was given a t-shirt which had some cuts and seams ripped, a needle, thread, scissors and buttons if they wanted to dress the shirt up. They were given five minutes to make the shirt presentable and it was then modeled by their escort while the contestant commented on what they had done to the shirt. The talent portion of the contest included singing, fitness coaching and milking a goat as some of the entries. Following the talent portion of the contest was the formal contest. Each contestant was able to choose formal wear that they felt fit them best courtesy of Nedrebo’s. The last part of the competition was the question – a deep philosophical question. There were fourteen questions that

Sugar River Clean-Up planned for Saturday 608-862-1698 or 773-418-7123. Leave a message including your name & phone number and we will return your call. Come on out and help us clean up while enjoying the great outdoors after a long dull winter. Food & refreshments will be served to all volunteers as a token of our appreciation. Hope to see you there.

COURTESY PHOTOS Brodhead Independent-Register

(Top Right) Pictured are volunteers from the Albany Harvest Center with some of the trash they removed from the river in 2011 including a bicycle. This year will mark the 25th annual Sugar River Cleanup and we are sure to find some interesting items in the river, especially after last winter’s ice floods.

(Bottom Right) This photo was taken 15 years ago at the 2003 SugarRiver Cleanup, of volunteering working to clear a blockage in the Little Sugar River near Ruben’s Cave. Work is available in the water – you’ll be provided a canoe, trash bags and a snack. If you prefer to be on land, you will get shuttled to bridges and other areas in need of attention. If you want to cut wood, you will be signed up with the tree crews. Motorized jon boats and chainsaws are always needed.

Letter to the Editor

Albany referendum does no pass muster Dear Editor, In response to the Albany School District that is considering a referendum. I would like to thank Mr. Paul Garvoille for his information that he presented. After, I read his article, I spent a full-day examining the district report card in more detail, where our overall score falls out of 423 districts throughout WI, open enrollment transfers out of our district, and the money it costs our small district. I even contacted Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to clarify a few of my own questions. I can affirm that Mr. Garvoille is accurate. More powerfully spoken, I was disheartened to learn that 1/3 of our students that were tested are at grade level and 2/3

are below. Based on current information provided, this has been the trend for the past two years. That is unacceptable to me as a taxpayer. Has the Albany school district received preliminary data on this year’s testing results? I sincerely hope for the sake of the students that receive an education here in Albany, the current school board and administration direct immediate attention and resources to help struggling students. The importance of a quality education in this very competitive world we live in is so important for this generation of students. My other concern is the amount of families that have left the district through open enrollment due to negative experiences. Including mine! We don’t need a referendum, we need interventions with educa-

tion, effective leadership, improving family connections, and ways to build relationships and maintain relationships. When can we expect that? The heart of this community is not the Albany School District, relationships and making memorable experiences as a community is. How many more “unfortunate negative experiences” can this district afford? Before spending any further tax dollars for improvements, as taxpayers we need to make sure that the school is indeed improving these areas of need. Pouring money into a failing school district that is contemplating consolidation, does not make financial sense to me. Without a quality school, we have no community. Karen Henry Albany, WI

The Lake Winnetka Sugar River Improvement Association Inc. will hold its annual Sugar River cleanup in Albany WI. On Saturday May 19, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will meet at the Albany American Legion Hall @ 300 N Water St. across from the Boat Ramp near the Police/Fire station. Our goal is to remove as much garbage as possible from the river and its banks. We also want to clear a path through fallen trees that totally block navigation of canoes & create hazards. The type of work varies from walking the banks or riding in canoes & picking up trash to cutting tree branches and handing them to people on shore. Equipment needed is canoes or small boats, chain saws, bow saws & waders. The association will provide trash bags and local businesses will provide food & refreshments. We will get organized at 9 a.m. and begin cleaning up at 10 a.m. or sooner; however, a representative will be on-premise at the Albany American Legion to direct those who want to come later. Our clean-up is registered with the American Rivers National River Cleanup. Scout groups can earn community service points by helping out. Please volunteer your help or equipment.

Pastor’s Corner


The Christian tradition to which I belong (Lutheran) has a long history of engaging in public life. As our namesake, Martin Luther, said often, we are set free in Christ to serve our neighbor. Our baptismal identity and the joy of living in God’s grace means we are able and empowered to serve the world, to care for the needs of others and of creation. We understand our salvation through Jesus as a life devoted to this holy calling. Set free in Christ to serve the world, our church devotes much of its ministry to participating in the shared life of our world, discerning the important issues of our time, and advocating for public policies that reflect the justice of God’s promised future. For the curious, you can find much more about this at Faith-and-Society At its churchwide assembly in 1993, our church adopted a social statement on Caring for Creation. Despite being 25 years old, this document remains a relevant witness today, and a source of encouragement for me. It acknowledged then, as it does now, that the two greatest threats to God’s good earth are excessive consumption and relentless growth of the human population. We recognize further that both of these threats spring from and are intensified by social injustices such as poor education, lack of employment, economic disparity, poor health care, and human rights. It is complicated, to be sure. Under no illusions that we alone possess the answers to our environmental challenges or that we alone can solve them, we as a church are committed to doing all we can as a full participant in our shared life for the sake of the earth. Given our claimed identity as the baptized, we know that this isn’t just a good and responsible thing to do (to leave a healthy planet for future generations), it is our job as human beings. It is for this purpose that God created humanity and sets us free by grace. Earth-keeping is perhaps the oldest of our callings as created beings, and as our scriptural witness makes abundantly clear, it is a matter of justice not only to God’s creation, but to our neighbor. When we support unsustainable agricultural and industrial practices

that deplete the earth’s resources and/ or distribute them in ways that are unfair and unjust, we diminish the life of others. When we allow and perpetuate catastrophic pollution of water and air, we diminish life further for those who have no choice but to drink it and breathe it. When we place our trust in the profits-driven environmental decisions of our civic leaders and economically powerful over the “prophets-driven” vision of a harmonious creation, with equity and justice for all people, we diminish life for everyone. This is true globally and locally. Now if you are reading between the lines and wondering whether I oppose the development of the CAFO being constructed outside of Brodhead, you would be correct. I am deeply concerned, as are so many in our communities, about the potential for harm that CAFOs such as this impose upon the environment. For me, it is a concern not of personal opinion, political ideology, or even my own well-being as a “downwind” and “downstream” neighbor, but rather, a concern born out of my faith and calling as a child of God, set free for the work and ministry of a divine mission that includes ecological and economical justice. I know that this ongoing struggle

within our county and state is complicated. I don’t deny my own complicity in it, nor do I presume to have solutions to all the issues that have made this our reality. And of course, by no means will I claim expertise in largescale agriculture. But I do know that this profits-driven project poses a risk to God’s earth and to my neighbors, and I know my identity as a member of Christ’s church. I know my role as a leader within my faith tradition and as a human being created in large part for the care and protection of God’s earth and its creatures. I know the vital importance of water and air to sustain life and I know the responsibilities for which Christ has set me – and indeed, all of us – free. There is one earth, and we have one life to use it and share it well. It remains my hope and prayer that more people of faith will enter these discussions about the environment and our stewardship of it (locally and globally), that they will engage our shared life and the policies that shape it, and that they’d do so with the courage and joy that flow from the promise of God’s future to all creation. Our earth and our neighbors most in need of protection and justice need our collective, faithful voice to be heard. v

businesses booming

Consumers’ appetites for local foods are growing, and restaurants have taken notice. Today, many local businesses, including farms and restaurants, have mutually exclusive relationships that make it possible for local residents to enjoy nutritious, locally produced meals. According to the market research firm Packaged Facts, local foods generated $11.7 billion in sales in 2014 and will climb to $20.2 billion by 2019. Farm-to-table remains a growing trend that benefits farmers, restaurateurs and consumers. This is evidenced by the rising number of farmers markets cropping up in neighborhoods all across the country, as well as the niche offerings by regional food purveyors. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that, in the last 20 years, the number of farmers markets has grown by more than 350 percent. Many consumers are now choosing “local” for dining at home and when dining out, and this is making a major impact on the nation’s food systems. Foodies as well as industry experts predict that the local foods movement is a permanent and mainstream trend. In 2014, the National Restaurant Association found the desire for local foods dominated its “Top Food Trends.” The most in-demand foods include locally sourced meats and seafood as well as locally sourced produce. Consumers also are interested in farm/estate-branded foods. Some restaurants are even producing “hyper-local” food, or herbs and produce grown right on the property. As the demand for local foods has evolved, so has the term “local foods.” “Local” can be a wideranging term that refers to foods produced in a particular town, state or even region. The 2008 Farm Act defines a “locally or regionally produced agricultural food product” as one that is marketed less than

400 miles from its origin. However, a few states have established more stringent rules that indicate “local” constitutes food produced within the borders of a state or within a small perimeter of the state. The growing preference for locally produced foods is great news for the farmers and small food producers that have long fought for footing among the mega-importers. According to the trade publication “Produce Business,” even though “local” does not place limits on the size of the farm, the growing desire among consumers to go local is benefiting many small and midsized farms because consumers are increasingly buying foods grown closer to where they live. In addition to meats, fruits and vegetables, consumers can find many locally made items that expand the potential for farm-to-table. These include, but are not limited to, artisan cheeses, wines, beer, baked goods, milk and other dairy, and honey.






Herb gardens can be grown in compact spaces, which means you can fit your favorites in no matter how much space you have-or don’t have- for growing your own.

Young Farmers

People who live in cities, exurbs or suburbs may not come across farms very frequently. But millions of people, including children, still live on farms. In fact, in 2009 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention noted that more than 1 million of those under the age of 20 lived, worked or had a regular presence on farms in the United States. Protecting children from injury on farms, especially those who perform work on farms, is of paramount

importance. The American Society of Safety Engineers offers the following safety tips to parents of children who will be spending time on farms. Know and obey the laws Various state and federal laws are in place to protect young children from farm-related accidents and injuries. Age requirements dictate which jobs children can perform on a farm,


and parents should adhere to those requirements. Asking children to do more than they’re physically capable of can lead to accident, injury or even death.

Review equipment operation instructions Before assigning children a task on the farm, parents should review Inspect equipment Before children perform any tasks the equipment operation instructions. Doing so can help parents reacquaint on the farm, parents should inspect the equipment their children are likely to use to make sure each tool is safe. Make sure tools are in proper working order because broken or poorly working equipment increases the risk of accident or injury.


camps. The ASSE recommends that parents contact their local Cooperative Extension and Farm Bureau offices to enroll children in farm safety camps. Such camps can teach kids safe farming techniques and the proper ways to use age-appropriate tools.

Set a positive example Another way for parents to protect their children on the farm is to set a positive example. Parents can do so in various ways. Using equipment properly, removing tractor keys from ignitions when tractors are not in use and exercising caution when using hazardous materials shows kids the importance of caution when working Have kids take lessons Enroll children in farm safety on farms.

Many people rely on the agriculture industry for their foods but think little of the impact that agriculture has on the larger economy. However, data indicates that agriculture can serve a significant role in the process of solidifying the economy of a country, particularly developing nations. Agriculture also can contribute to the economic prosperity of advanced countries. IPP Media points out that the economic history of many developed countries indicates that agricultural prosperity contributed heavily to their economic advancement. When the basic food supply is strong, the national economy can be strong as well. Particularly in the early days of the United States, farming held a crucial place in establishing the American economy and culture, and it still shapes the country today. Many states find that farming and other agricultural pursuits contribute much to the local and national economy. For example, new research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and University of Wisconsin-Extension show that agriculture is a powerful economic force in Wisconsin. Agricultural businesses help generate more than $83 billion in activity and have created more than 400,000 jobs in that state. The public should not disregard how strong a factor agriculture can be in establishing a strong economic environment. Safeguarding agricultural jobs and the agricultural industry is crucial to economic stability.

Rep. Spreitzer statement on UW-System funding for agriculture educators Today, State Rep. Mark Spreitzer (D-Beloit), along with his Democratic colleagues in the legislature, sent letters to Governor Walker and UW System President Ray Cross expressing their concerns with recent cuts to UW-Extension agriculture educator position funding in

Wisconsin. “Only three years after Governor Walker slashed UW System funding, rural communities and farmers are seeing the negative effects,” said

ty of Green, State of Wisconsin, for a Class “B” Beer License for Professional Property Management, Richard C. Josephson for Sweet Minihaha Campground, located at N4697 County E, Brodhead, WI, for a period from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019. Ann L. Schwartz Clerk/Treasurer The Independent Register 5/9, 5/16/2018 WNAXLP 314670

As you are surely aware, underage drinking is illegal. Not only does it produce long-term, adverse effects on one’s health, it is also one of the leading causes of death among youth. We’re committed to keeping everyone safe during prom and graduation celebrations; won’t you join us? Please contact us to get your yard sign, banner, poster or static decal today. Those who purchase, provide, or pour alcohol for underage drinkers, and the people they injure, can sue you.

Better Brodhead IR Legal Notices handing out decals to combat TOWN OF DECATUR NOTICE Notice is hereby given that application has been received by the youth drinking Town Clerk, Town of Decatur, Coun-

Rep. Spreitzer. “By reducing the availability of local agriculture educators, farmers stand to lose a valuable source of research and expertise to enhance their output. These cuts were at best shortsighted, and at worst, an attempt to further erode the Wisconsin Idea by preventing research done at the University of Wisconsin from being available to our local communities and farmers.” In his 2015-17 budget, Governor

Walker cut $250 million from the UW-System. In response, UW System announced they would restructure their organization as a means of cost savings. Unfortunately, UW System did not adequately sound the alarm on some of the practical effects of its restructuring. UW System waited until after counties completed their budget process, and until after the legislature had adjourned, before notifying multiple counties

in Southwest Wisconsin that they would not be receiving full-time agriculture educators this year. “These positions are vital in rural communities, but with county budgets wrapped up and the legislature having concluded its work for the session, we may be out of options to ensure additional funding,” Spreitzer added. “Sadly, this could have all been prevented by sounding the alarm earlier.”
