THE AWARD WINNING OFFICIAL LEGAL NEWSPAPER OF JUNEAU COUNTY THURSDAY, JULY 18, 2013

$1.00

Shadowland Operating addresses county board, opponents BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD

Dan Coughlin

Mistrial in Coughlin trial BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD Days into intense, and at times disturbing, testimony from witnesses Juneau County District Court Judge John Roemer declared a mistrial in the State of Wisconsin's case against 50 year old Dan Coughlin of Lyndon Station. According to online court records and reports, the move came after Assistant Attorney General, Winn Collins, informed the court that video testimony existed of two witnesses. The videos were taken during interviews with the alleged victims in the case and were conducted by the Juneau County Sheriff's Department. Prior to the trial, attorneys only had audio portions of the interviews. Defense attorney Michael Ganzer reportedly told the court that he had based his case on transcripts and the audio portions of the interviews and that had he known about the videos his defense may have taken a different route including additional expert testimony. Ganzer motioned the court for a dismissal, however Collins objected to the motion. Roemer ruled that a mistrial had occurred and an October 15th hearing is now scheduled for arguments on possible sanctions. Earlier in the week a juror, Timothy Shanahan, was removed after the court learned that he had made statements about the on-going case on his Facebook page. Those statements included critiques of the attorneys handling the case. Coughlin was charged with three counts each of First degree child sexual and Second degree child sexual assault for alleged incidents that occurred over a period of time from 1989 through 1992. Coughlin's brother Donald has also been charged and is facing 23 felony counts relating to child sexual assault. His trial was scheduled to begin later this month on July 29th however, last week a postponement was granted and a motion hearing has been scheduled for July 29th. He is being represented by defense attorney Daniel Berkos.

The question Juneau County Board Supervisors are considering is whether or not to be a conduit for $65 million in bonds so that Shadowland Operating, LLC can move forward with a sand mining operation in the Township of Orange. Should the county approve the measure it would be at no risk to the county. It was a question that was first addressed at the May meeting of the Juneau County Board of Supervisors where at the Representatives from Shadowland Operating spoke with opponents after time, with a vote of 14 to the county board meeting. 7 supervisors moved forward in the multi-step Supervisors for tackling lished in December of track record.

SIX RIVERS TOASTMASTERS CHARTERS

Toastmasters was first introduced to the Mauston community less than one year ago and in that time a lot of hard work has been put into getting a club formed. The Six Rivers Toastmasters have been holding regular meetings since September of 2012 and reached charter status this past month. This milestone is a huge accomplishment for Six Rivers Toastmasters and signifies that the club is recognized by Toastmasters International. Six Rivers Toastmasters meets on a regular basis for members to practice various skills useful in public speaking, including giving speeches, speaking extemporaneously, listening, and providing each other with feedback and evaluation. Six Rivers Toastmasters meets the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month at 7 p.m. sharp on the top floor of Mauston City Hall. Guests are always welcome so plan to come and check out how easily Toastmasters can fit into your self-development plan.

Heat advisory and tips As summer heat builds in many parts of Wisconsin Emergency Management and Public Health agencies are urging everyone to be aware of the dangers associated with extreme heat and to take protective safety measures. Sustained temperatures near or in excess of 90 degrees pose a risk of heat-related illness and death, especially when humidity levels exceed 65 percent. The risk is highest for older adults and individuals with chronic illnesses, or for individuals taking medications that inhibit perspiration and the body’s natural cooling process. General symptoms of heat exhaustion include fainting, rash, fatigue and nausea. Skin may become clammy and moist or hot and dry. The onset of heat stroke can be rapid and may progress to life-threatening illness within minutes. If heatrelated symptoms appear, immediate actions should be taken to reduce body temperature. The following actions are recommended when temperatures are above 90 degrees:

* Drink more fluids during hot weather to avoid dehydration. Rapid weight loss may be a sign of dehydration. * Spend the hottest part of the day in a cool, preferably air-conditioned place * Do not plan strenuous activities during the warmest part of the day. * Use fans to increase ventilation unless temperatures exceed 90° (at which point fans become ineffective in reducing heat-related illness) * Take a cool shower, bath or sponge bath to reduce body temperatures. In addition, wet clothing has a cooling effect. * Make frequent checks on the status of elderly or ill relatives or neighbors and move them to an air-conditioned environment during the hottest part of the day. * Make sure animals have cover from the sun and have plenty of water available.

The Elroy Family Restaurant has been sitting empty for a while and now it has reopened under new ownership. "Uncle Mike", Mike Aliu, has taken over from the previous owner. Uncle Mike has been the restaurant business for 30 years. He has owned a few other restaurants in Wisconsin and spent time here in Elroy a year ago helping with the Elroy Family Restaurant. Mike said he loved the Elroy area and the small town feel of Elroy. When he found out he could come back to the area and be a part of the community, he jumped at the opportunity to be an Elroy business owner. The Elroy Family restaurant is serving Italian foods such as Pizza, Pasta, and Calzones. Mike is from Italy and has a real flare for his native dishes. The Elroy Family Restaurant is open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Uncle Mike would like to welcome all Elroy citizens and surrounding communities to come and try his cuisine and judge for themselves.

Mauston School Board fills two positions BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD Last Tuesday evening the Mauston School Board tackled filling an open position due to a recent resignation. That position was for the opening left after former Director of Instruction and Curriculum, Lynette Livingston, accepted a position in Chippewa Valley. The decision on her replacement was made official after a closed session when the board approved a two year contact for David McGuire with an annual salary of $87,000. McGuire comes from the Columbus School District where he was principal and also the Director of Curriculum and Technology. McGuire's new title at the Mauston School District will be Director of Teaching and Learning. Members also filled a vacancy on the board due to former

board member, Neal McIntire, resigning as he was moving out of the district. Members have appointed Lynda Vinopal to fill the vacancy. According to the district, Vinopal is a long time resident of the Mauston area and had formerly served as the district's Library Director. She will serve in that position until the Spring 2014 School Board Election at which time voters will make the next selection for the three year term. The Board met on July 9th in a Special School Board Meeting and interviewed two applicants who had submitted letters of interest for the board seat. The second candidate was Mrs. Pam Holmes. The Board of Education and Superintendent, Christine M. Weymouth, expressed appreciation for the interest of these two district residents in serving the school district, and the students of Mauston.

SAND, from page 1 eliminate the concern of emissions in the area. Latest technology will also be utilized, which according to Cross would also eliminate concerns about an over abundance of dust in the air when loading that sand onto the train cars. "I understand your comments and concern - they don't fall on deaf ears," he said. He then stated that is why

his company was working hard in making sure the latest of technology was being used. He spoke about also working closely with Volk Field and successfully addressing any concerns they had. Board supervisor Margaret Marchetti questioned the representative from Shadowland by stating, "If you have so much money why then do you want us?"

Bates responded to her question by stating that it wasn't a matter of them having money, but that Shadowland Operating was a Wisconsin based business, "This is the first way - the good way," he stated. According to Cross the area in Juneau County slated to be mined could produce upwards of 75 million tons of sand, however, Shadowland plans on min-

ing out 55 to 65 million tons. After Tuesday's board meeting, representatives of Shadowland met with the members of the press for a press conference to address the background of the company, it's offers, and the topic of sand mining. Look to next week's issue of The Messenger for an article on that conference.

Red Cross issues tips to stay safe Summer is here, bringing with it dangerous excessive heat. The American Red Cross has steps people can follow to stay safe as the temperatures soar. NEVER LEAVE CHILDREN, PETS IN THE CAR, the inside temperature of the car can quickly reach 120 degrees. Other heat safety steps include: § Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. § Avoid extreme temperature changes. § Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays. § Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. § Postpone outdoor games and activities. § Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat. Take frequent breaks if working outdoors. § Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. § Check on animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat. Make sure they have plenty of cool water. § If someone doesn’t have air conditioning, they should choose places to go to for relief from the heat during the warmest part of the day (schools, libraries, theaters, malls).

HEAT EXHAUSTION Excessive heat can lead to sunburn, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. If someone is experiencing heat cramps in the legs or abdomen, get them to a cooler place, have them rest, lightly stretch the affected muscle, and replenish their fluids with a half a glass (about 4 ounces) of cool water every 15 minutes. If someone is exhibiting signs of heat exhaustion (cool, moist, pale or flushed skin, heavy sweating, headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness exhaustion), move them to a cooler place, remove or loosen tight clothing and spray the person with water or apply cool, wet clothes or towels to the skin. Fan the person. If they are conscious, give small amounts of cool water to drink. Make sure the person drinks slowly. Watch for changes in condition. If the person refuses water, vomits or begins to lose consciousness, call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number. HEAT STROKE IS LIFE-THREATENING. Signs include hot, red skin which may be dry or moist; changes in consciousness; vomiting and high body temperature. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number immediately if someone shows signs of heat stroke. Move the person to a cooler place. Quickly cool the person’s body by immersing them up to their neck in cold water if possible. Otherwise, douse or spray the person with cold water, or cover the person with cold, wet towels or bags of ice.

Blood drive upcoming at Mile Bluff Throughout the year, Mile Bluff Medical Center hosts a number of community blood drives. The events are a partnership between the medical center and the Blood Center of Wisconsin - the sole supplier of blood products to Mile Bluff. Join your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors, and do your part to help save lives by coming to the next blood drive at Mile Bluff. The event is scheduled for Monday, July 29 and Tuesday, July 30 from 9 am to 2 pm both days. Each blood donation made at Mile Bluff could touch the lives of up to three people in the community. At this drive, you will have the option to make a whole blood donation (which is made up of red blood cells, platelets, plasma and white blood cells), or you can give a dual red or platelet-only donation. While a whole blood donation will yield red blood cells and platelets, it would take two whole blood donations to equal the same amount of red blood cells that can be found in a single dual red cell donation. It would take six units of whole blood to equal the same amount of platelets that are in a single platelet-only donation. You can help someone in need. Make a blood donation on July 29 and 30 during the drive at Mile Bluff Medical Center

in Mauston. To reserve your spot, call the Blood Center of Wisconsin at 1-888-310-7555 to make an appointment. Requirements for being a blood donor: * Must be 17 years or older (16-year-olds can donate with parental consent) * Must weigh at least 110 pounds * Should be free of any cold, flu or allergy symptoms the day of donation * Must not have had hepatitis after age 11 * Should not have any risk factors associated with HIV or AIDS * Must know the names and doses of all medications (most prescriptions are acceptable) Tips to remember the day you donate: * Bring along a photo ID such as a driver’s license. * Drink plenty of fluids prior to and following your donation. * Avoid strenuous physical exercise until the day following your donation. * Eat a nutritious meal prior to and following donating.

Mauston has gas scare BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD Residents in a neighborhood on Mauston's south side experienced a little scare last week when on Wednesday morning at approximately 8:30 a.m. they were evacuated to Lion's Park. According to a press release issued by Mauston Police Officer Mike Zilisch, the Mauston Public Works Department had struck a high pressure line in the road construction area of South Union and Milwaukee Streets. The area was blocked and residents were evacuated until Alliant Energy was able to shut off the natural gas. Alliant checked the homes within the vicinity of the accident to ensure that there were no signs of gas pooling in any of the residences. Once the area was secured and deemed safe, residents were allowed to return to their homes. Responding to the scene were the Mauston Police Department, Juneau County Sheriff's Department, and the Mauston Fire Department.

Visit the Messenger facebook page for daily news updates!

BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD This past Sunday a large crowd attending the annual 40 et 8 Picnic in Germantown gathered. The attendees came out to help the Mauston VFW raise funds for their nursing scholarship program. Those who did come out for the event included over 80 bikers from a Wausau area motorcycle club. As in previous years those who attended the 40 et 8 dined on grilled chicken, while they listened to live music from Shitz and Giggles. Children remained entertained with games and a chance to ride the famous VFW train engine car. A bake sale, bingo, silent auction, and raffles were also held in an effort to raise funds. The picnic is held on private land owned by the Mauston VFW. Land that is cooled under an umbrella created by the towering pine trees that call it home. No matter the reason or activity one attended the 40 et 8 for, all left knowing that their time spent on a hot summer day in July was for a good cause. Helping those who help others is a deep and rich history of the 40 et 8. The organization is named after the WW I soldiers who were transported to the front lines in french railway cars that could fit either 40 men or eight horses. It was formed over 90 years ago and since the onset the purpose was to help charitable organizations, including ones that help children and the disabled. The story detailing the origins can be found in detail on the national organization's website, www.fortyandeight.org. Below is a summary of the history: The organization was named La Societe des Quarente Hommes et Huit Chevaux (the Society of Forty Men and Eight Horses).

Steffen family celebrates 75 years of family reunions BY MARY PETROWITZ “It was thought by a few of the local Steffens that it would be nice to have a gathering of all the Steffen families, so it was decided to call a meeting of the clan on July 16, 1939, said meeting to be held at the Elroy City Park, Elroy, Wisconsin.” Taken from the meeting minutes of the very first Steffen reunion, the 75th annual Steffen reunion was held on Sunday, July 14th, 2013, at the Elroy American Legion Hall. In attendance were 87 cousins who traveled from Arizona, Texas, Florida, Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The tradition of an annual family picnic has kept the Steffen clan close and in touch with distant cousins over the years. Tracking the genealogy as far back as the birth of Ludwig Christian Steffen in 1744 in Pomerania, Germany, through today has created a record of 2,611 people, 753 surnames, 913 marriages, and 9 generations. The 4th generation of our tracking began with the birth of Albert Herman Steffen, born April 24th, 1853 in Arnswalde, Brandenburg, Pomerania, Germany. He immigrated to the Wonewoc, Wisconsin area in 1870 and married Matilda “Tillie” Neumann three years later in Hillsboro. This marriage was blessed with 12 children: Agnes Fredricka (Albert “Bert” or “Bud” Steffen), Theodore Trogot (Nellie E. Cox), Louisa “Lizzie” (George Joseph Nerud), Cora Lena Matilda (Ernest Claire Betts), Rudolph Peter (Ada Cornelia Mutch), Samuel Herman (Izora Stafford), Elnora Adelia (August A. Daberkow), Hugo Ferdinand (Ona Edith McKittrick and Flora M. Sampson), Edward Charles (Gertrude “Gertie” Blum), Ferdinand Albert “Ferd” (Winnie Margaret Schaefer and Elizabeth E. Sosinski), Mathilda Amelia “Tillie M.” (Edward Francis Gross), and Herman Guy (Freida Raese and Celia Harris). Many of these families have stayed in the Hillsboro and Elroy areas. You may recall that “Ferd” Steffen was Sheriff of Juneau County from 1941 to 1944. Or you may have bought a Chevy or a Buick from the Steffen Garage in Elroy in the 1950s or 1960s. The second Sunday of July is the day reserved for the annual Steffen picnic. We gather at noon for a delicious potluck lunch and sharing of old family pictures, followed by a meeting that honors marriages, births, and passings from the past year. The person who traveled the farthest this year was Bernice “Bea” Steffen, formerly of Elroy, and recently relocated to Arizona; the oldest attendee was Vera “Aunt Dale” Peters, daughter of Mathilda, 92 years old. Chuck Tremain, grandson of Ferd, and family Historian, created an updated Steffen Family

The Steffen family celebrated their 75th annual family reunion picnic on Sunday at the Elroy Legion. The 87 Steffen cousins that attended enjoyed an afternoon of looking through the updated Steffen family genealogical records in a recently published book that dates back through nine generations. The annual event gathers family members from all over the country. Also, the family honored yearly highlights of births, marriages, and passings during their meeting. Many enjoyed the day catching up with one another and displaying their family heritage with a crest-emblem design on matching t-shirts. Genealogical Record for the family in book or CD form. Jennifer Steffen, great granddaughter of Edward, designed a 75th Annual Steffen Family Picnic t-shirt. We enjoyed the traditional ice cream cones for dessert, a softball game for the children and the usual wealth of picture taking, memories and sto-

Elroy Public Library BY MARY WAARVIK LIBRARIAN Our Summer Reading patrons are really digging into the library’s reading projects. First off, the Elroy Library was one of the lucky libraries that received 4 tickets to the Green Bay Packers Family Game Night, to be held on August 3! We will hold a drawing for these tickets on July 27. Entry is limited to people 13 years and under, who are in Elroy’s Summer Reading Program. When kids come in to record their reading time, they can enter their name. One entry a week, please. Also, check out the very inventive bulletin board that is across from the Circ Desk. Sara, our Library Assistant, has created a fascinating underground cartoon world. Each

week new characters may pop up; what allusions do you see? What else? Last Thursday, kids heard a bunch of goofy stories while munching lunch under the trees. We went inside and created caterpillars from egg cartons. Then we decorated flower pots, filled them with dirt and seeds, and put everything in the display case. Will they grow? What will pop out? Check the Display Case when you come to the library – and keep your fingers crossed. We also found a few ants to populate our Ant Camp. Will they eat the blue goo and dig tunnels? Will they escape? This week, our Junior Book & Movie Club will be eating pizza, talking about “The Ant Bully” and watching the movie. Thursday is our Pool Party at the Elroy Park (my apologies for having an incorrect date on

Teen dance and swimming kicked off Wa Du Shuda Days in New Lisbon BY EVA MARIE WOYWOD On Friday evening the New Lisbon Community Pool kicked off Wa Du Shuda Days with a Mardi Gras Teen Dance. The event was sponsored by the Oakdale Credit Union and teens attending paid just $5 for a night of swimming, games, and music. Music was provided by DJ Chris

Ingles. In between taking part in volleyball games and water activities, party goers dined on pizza. The party started at 7 p.m. and lasted through the night until 11 p.m. According to New Lisbon Community Pool Director Denise Fleming, well over 65 had come out for the party within the first half an hour of it starting. She said

that she expected those numbers to grow as the evening progressed. Oakdale Credit Union representative and party committee member Colleen Woggon said the annual party has turned into a tradition and that organizers for the event worked hard to ensure a fun and safe evening for the area's youth.

The teen dance at the New Lisbon Pool had a great turnout.

DJ Chris Ingles handled the music for the evening.

Volleyball games were just another activity that was featured for the teens.

Cooling off in the pool attracted many during the event and lifeguards made sure everyone was safe.

New Lisbon Library Challenge BY DEANNA ROSIER LIBRARIAN A couple of days ago the Library received a call from Barbara (Crawford) Patterson, who was in the 1957 New Lisbon class. She stated that she was talking to her brother, Richard Crawford, from the class of 1960, about her donating $5,000 to the Library Building Fund. Her brother said he would put another $5,000 in if she would put up hers and this would make it a $10,000 challenge for the Library to get

matches for. Both of them agreed and are making this a sister and brother team challenge to everyone. One of the $5,000 is for minimum donations of $100 or more that add up to $5,000. One sum of $5,000 donated by a person, group, or business will be matched. All of these efforts will give a grand total of $20,000 towards the New Lisbon Memorial Library Remodeling and Expansion Fund. For more information on this and other events please call the Library at 608-562-3213 or email nlploff@wrlsweb.org.

Osprey nesting pole should help keep the power on at Necedah factory BY STEVE NORLING On Wednesday July 10th, a crew from AT&T arrived in Necedah to install a new osprey pole. This pole went behind the Freudenberg building, at the edge of their property near the Yellow River. Ospreys have a tendency to nest on top of electric poles and near to water, as they live pretty much on fish that they catch. For the past two years a pair have been attempting to build their nest

on the double crossbars of one of the poles carrying the line behind the Freudenberg building. Each time they attempted to do this they managed to short out the line and cause a power outage in the plant. After coming to Necedah several times to get the nesting material off the lines and get the power back on, it was decided between AT&T and Freudenberg that the ideal solution would be to install a nesting pole with a nesting platform on top of it.

The pole was a donated pole, which had been previously retired from use by a replacement. The nesting platform was donated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The labor was provided by AT&T, who provided the people and the bucket truck to drill the hole and lift the pole. Mary Eiler Radl from the Tomah office of AT&T was there to observe, as were Charles Spurrell and Daniel

Hildebrand of Freudenberg. Kathy Theys and Dan Weber were the crew from AT&T that did the actual setting of the pole. Other than having three feet of water in the first seven feet of hole and having to get a sleeve to keep the water away from the pole, the event went off great. Freudenberg is happy, AT&T is happy and now they both hope that the

Works Chris Woda accompanied her to the trail leading to the school. This is where the trees are planted and Eiler Radl was very impressed as to the size and health of the trees. She felt that Necedah put them in an excellent location and that they would add a lot of color to the area starting next spring.

ospreys will be happy and use the nesting platform. After the pole setting Mary Eiler Radl requested that she would like to see the trees which AT&T had donated to the village. Earlier this year AT&T donated three Japanese Lilac trees and two Red Jewel flowering crabapple trees to the village. Village Administrator Roger Herried and Head of Public

Hillsboro Farmers Co-Op to merge with United Co-Op On July 11, 2013, the Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative Board of Directors, Hillsboro, Wis., signed a letter of intent to pursue a merger with United Cooperative, based in Beaver Dam, Wis. “This is a very positive move for the Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative members,” stated Larry Swalheim, Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative General Manager. “Merging with United Cooperative will give us the best solution to modernize our facilities, be competitive in the marketplace, protect our members equity, and generate excellent earnings to our members. United Cooperative is very financially successful, and they have experience merging with other cooperatives.” In the coming months, there will be a series of meetings with Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative employees and patron members about the proposed merger. Ballots will be mailed to the Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative voting members in August. If approved, the merger will take effect October 1, 2013. Hillsboro Farmers Cooperative is projecting revenues for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013, to be near $60 million. They have feed, grain, agronomy, energy, and retail locations in Hillsboro, Kendall, Wilton, Yuba, Wonewoc, Ontario, and Cazenovia. Formed in 1936, United Cooperative is a full-service cooperative with feed, grain, agronomy, fuel, lubricant, and propane locations throughout Wisconsin. They documented $643 million in sales in 2012, up $120 million from 2011 due to internal growth and three mergers in northern Wisconsin.

W-C looks at 15% cut in budget BY TASHA MUELLER “State aid will go down approximately $270,000 to our district,” explained Business Manager Linda Dallman during Monday night’s regular school board meeting. The lowered number will have to be put on the upcoming levy after board members asked on how the upcoming budget will be looking for the school year. “Pretty much everything has been cut,” continued Dallman. “We can use some of our flow-through dollars along with school wide dollars.” The district will be working together in order to get the most out of how the money is used throughout the year. The cut will be affecting all public school systems throughout Wisconsin. A Fund 80 total of $14,000 will be staying the same due to the school board not being able to increase the number due to DPI regulations. The Community Service Fund budget has been increased at W-C in 2011 from $12,000 with more purchases needed, such as items for the Summer Rec program. Through the new DPI requirements, the district must have a concrete plan in writing and have the fund published on the school’s website by August 30. The board looks to making a consistent agreement on sig-

nature cards when dealing with all of the different bank accounts the district holds. Some uniformity will be addressed with the signatures of three board members decided on, along with the Business Manager or District Administrator. Cleaning up the accounts will also be done so that all accounts will be FDIC regulated. The annual audit will be held on August 1 and 2 as well as preliminary budget numbers will become available next month. New improvements to the main office are taking shape. Drywall has been getting finished, along with new carpet, lowering of the ceiling and dry coating on the walls have been accomplished after a mere eight coats of paint have been removed. Countertops still need to be put in and the board approved of a direction of where the staff would like to be placed in the new office arrangements. A wall will be removed from room 214 to make room for extra office space that will occupy a new classroom or a meeting room. The occupants of the space can make the decisions ongoing the process, but the project overall is looking good. Few changes will be made to the overall handbook, which includes admit slips can now be obtained from the main office, not just the principal, along with blue slips and others.

The main office will be used for much of the contact listings. No changes will be made to the athletic handbook. Cell phone language was reviewed and renewed for teachers that will or won’t allow them to be used in specific classrooms. Next month, an approval on any updates to the handbook will be made as it is currently being reviewed for the next school year. The board approved the fall athletic contracts for the upcoming school year and is leaving the winter and spring sports to be approved when it gets closer to each season. The next regular Wonewoc-Center school board meeting will be on Monday, August 19 at 7 p.m. The board also welcomed Dr. Lozeau to the district and will serve as the new District Administrator. Lozeau will be busy on getting the projects completed before school begins and to get everything in order for the students.

Wonewoc Library Expansion taking shape BY KIM DEARTH If you’ve driven through Wonewoc lately you’re sure to have noticed a change in the landscape. It is truly exciting to see the progress every day as we watch our new library grow before our eyes. But, as you can see from our thermometer out front, our fundraising efforts are far from over. While the project is proceeding on schedule, there are still many expenses involved with finishing our addition. The Friends of the Wonewoc Library have been steadfast in their quest to build a library the community deserves, but they need your help. Please consider donating to the Friends—you’ll become a piece of Wonewoc’s history, and future!

Slicing it for Sports BY TASHA MUELLER

In the Loop... with the Friends of the LaValle Library CONTRIBUTED BY PEGG CONDERMAN Are you ready for a Zombie Apocalypse? Does anyone besides me wonder about how things would be in a post-apocalyptic world? I was first introduced to this idea in the Kurt Vonnegut book titled "Fahrenheit 454" that described a world where books were outlawed. Society was controlled and the population was expected to do what they were told. History was rewritten to fit the aims of the government, creative thinking was discouraged. Then there was a society of revolutionaries. These people would memorize whole books such as "Moby Dick", "Little Women", "Bible", "Torah", etc. They "became" their book to preserve it for the next generation. Although it may be hard to imagine the mind-bending possibility of Vonnegut's world, his

At the 2013 State FFA Convention in Madison, the Wonewoc-Center received the P.R.I.D.E Award from the State Association. The P.R.I.D.E. Award was designed to increase chapter membership participation by encouraging chapters to continually recruit and retain members in hopes that every chapter would increase by ten members each year. P.R.I.D.E. stands for Promote, Recruit, Inspire, Develop, and Educate. Our FFA Chapter reached this recruitment goal in the 2012-2013 school year. The Wisconsin Association of FFA is a leading student organization due to the efforts of more than 18,000 students across the state. With a focus on premier leadership, personal growth and career success, students’ FFA activities complement agricultural classroom instruction by giving them an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge while gaining real-world experience. The Wonewoc-Center FFA Chapter hopes to continue in the growth of our organization and promoting student success.

The outing will take place on Saturday, July 27 at the Spring Valley Golf Course in Union Center.

Review the information presented at a public informational hearing if one is requested. 4. Review the information found in natural resource inventories and plans, maps, or data collected by the Department or others using commonly accepted methods. 5.

same time slot on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Later they dropped the Saturday Hornet. The radio station must have been a buy place in those days, with a crew or writers pounding out scripts for five or six days a week for the two programs, and radio actors barely having time to read them over before going on the air. One thing I never knew until I looked up the Lone Ranger was that the Green Hornet was the Lone Ranger's nephew and thus there was a connection between the two seemingly different programs. The Lone Ranger cast did a great job of creating illusion, so it was easy to feel you could see the story as it unfolded. One thing that bothered me, however, was that weapons were often "harmlessly discharged into the air." I kept wondering what happened to the bullets, and felt they had to come down somewhere. Much later in life I learned that bullets in the air can be quite a problem, in situations where large number of firearms are discharged into the air as a means of celebration, and they come down nearby. The concept of the Lone Ranger created a possibility for numerous stories, first for radio, then for TV, and I am sure there are many more that can be told. I hope someone has the opportunity to keep up the tradition.

Apparently the Disney organization's attempt to continue the saga of the Lone Ranger with yet another telling has flopped at the box office, failing to draw crowds large enough to pay the big bucks that were spent making it. I was sorry to hear that news. I had rather hoped the Lone Ranger would just keep going on seemingly forever, as has Superman. And, of course, this may not be the end. Someone else may come up with yet another telling that will better suit the public's fancy. The Lone Ranger has had quite a run anyway, starting as a radio series, then going on to a TV series, and later to several feature films. The radio series became very popular, with the first program broadcast m in January of 1933. It is entirely possible that as a toddler I heard the first broadcast. My Dad was a devoted Lone Ranger fan in those radio days, and every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we heard the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver, followed by what originally was a bit of the William Tell overture, and then another story of daring in the old west. The same radio actors who did the Lone Ranger in the studios of WXYZ in Detroit also did the Green Hornet in the

BY NANCY J SCHNEIDER As any of my loyal readers know, I’m a dog lover. I find myself looking for interesting articles or any such thing that is dog related and I read it. Some of the stuff is funny, some is sad, some is informative but all are about some kind of dog or dog related issues. Once in a while an article about a cat might sneak in but they are mostly dogs. Almost all my facebook “friends” have something to do with dogs. I came across this small article on the internet and just about split my pants laughing. What caused me to stop and read was the headline: “In Madrid, dog poo left in public places is mailed back to owners.” Now I will admit that before I read the article I had a lot of questions. After I got done laughing about it I thought I better check it out to find the answers to some of my questions. Questions like how did they know where to mail it? Who were the lucky people who were on “poop detail” and had to scoop it up, package it, and get it to the post office? How did the post office respond to having to handle such wonderful cargo? So yes, I had to read the article. It was actually quite short. First they tried to offer an incentive and the other option was to use negative reinforcement. “The council had previously worked with advertising agency McCann on a scheme that sent a motorized plastic dog poo around the municipal region with a message to encourage the cleaning up of pet waste.” Ok so now we have a piece of plastic dog poo running around with a message to owners to clean up after their pets. Did it work? Apparently not as well as they hoped for. “Noting that the campaign only saw temporary success, the local authority once again hired the agency for its new initiative. 20 agents were hired to follow citizens around the region to catch those who were letting their dogs foul in public places without clearing it up.” This sounds like a fun job. Twenty agents following dogs around to see if anyone cleaned up their mess. Hopefully the weather wasn’t too hot, too cold, or too rainy for the agents. But I still don’t know how these agents knew where to send the package even if they saw it left behind. I mean, unless they

know everyone in town, where they live and what kind of dog they owned, how on earth would they know where to send the darn mess? I guess I had to keep reading to find out. “The agents boxed the poo then approached the culprits and started a friendly conversation to determine the dog’s name and breed. This information was later crossreferenced with the town’s registered pet database to find out the name and address of the owner.” You gotta be kidding. You walk up to a stranger (with a box of dog poo hidden somewhere) and start a conversation. Right. What if the person wasn’t in a friendly, talkative mood? What then, send it to “occupant” somewhere in the near area? They never did answer this question in the article. However it went on to state: “The poo was then delivered to them as property from the ‘Lost & Found Department’, along with a notice informing them that next time there would be a fine.” Did it work? Did all this fussing over dog poop help clean up the area? Let’s return to the article: “According to the team behind the stunt, dog fouling has actually decreased by 70 percent in the region.” So is it worth it for a mere 70 percent? And what about the other 30 percent? Maybe they have not yet received their poop in mail. Which makes me have to mention I’m glad I’m not a letter carrier in Madrid. I certainly wouldn’t want to be walking door to door in the hot sun with a mail bag filled with poo! Bottom line is I just don’t understand why they don’t just ticket the offenders when they are observed. They’ve hired 20 agents to watch, let them hand out tickets and maybe that would end the whole thing, or at least match the 70 percent I bet. Hopefully folks will learn to take care of their pet refuse no matter what the incentive is. Till next week I’ll leave you with this NO-nonsense thought: A person must be big enough to admit their mistakes, smart enough to benefit from them and strong enough to correct them. n Nancy J Schneider is a member of The Wisconsin Regional Writers Association and writes freelance.

Nature of Things BY MARK DAHLKE A death, a torn black and white photograph, and the magic of technology; all connected by a common thread sewn through the fabric of time, stitching together the innocence of youth. The death of a childhood friend’s dad brought to light the oftquoted idiom, “it seems like the only things that bring people together are weddings and funerals”. As I walked up the sidewalk to the funeral home, my stomach fluttered with nervous anticipation of seeing my friend, Kevin, after so many years. We had been constant companions throughout childhood, adolescence, and our waning teenage years sharing adventures of all kinds. However, as happens so frequently with friendships, life has a way of turning years into decades. He had gained weight. I had lost most of my hair. He moved to the east coast after a stint in the service. I stayed in Wisconsin, never living any further away than a couple of hours from our hometown. He is raising kids from a second marriage. My wife and I are empty nesters. My mother passed away two years ago, his father, just this spring. Life has marched onward. We muddled through the awkward and uncomfortable small talk that takes place at these things. The back and forth of mindless biographical facts and idle chatter is common when life’s circumstances create chasms, whose bottoms are littered with the remains of the bonds of friendship. Our conversation at the funeral home flowed through me like fog, never penetrating or sticking in my consciousness. Instead, my mind flipped through memories like pages in a photo album: campouts in backyards, inventing enemies to battle in the woods, pranks, Kool-aid and chip-fueled all-night card games, canoe trips down the Namekogan River. As I left the visitation, I felt empty. While it was good seeing Kevin again, I wanted to scratch the itch of time and relive pieces from our past. My wife, Ellen gently reminded me that we

were there for Kevin and his family, not for a reunion of the old gang from Wonewoc. A few days later, Ellen dug out a worn black and white photo of ten kids between the ages of 3 and 11, who stood straight as sticks in two lines. Stamped on the border around the picture is the date: Sept. 1969. The kids donned swimming suits, except for one dorky-looking one (me), who came unprepared and had to roll up his pant legs. With the look of youthful innocence, we posed with wet, tamped down hair after a water fight or running through a sprinkler. Excluding me, the nine of them were from three different families in the neighborhood known as North Town. Kevin and his younger sister were there along with Opie, the third leg of our friendship stool, and his sisters and brother. The other three (two cute girls and their little brother), ended up being my future wife, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law. Unbeknownst to us, the thread of life had begun to stitch us together. However, we were too young to understand that or see any farther than the next day. All that mattered to us was running through sprinklers, water fights, and building forts on hot summer days. Ellen posted that picture on Facebook©, drawing attention from those in the picture and others who knew us from Wonewoc. Soon other photos from that era began popping up in the cyber-world. One such picture caught my eye that showed Kevin and me striding down the sidewalk in front of the Wonewoc Legion Hall. Kevin, tall and lean, sported an out of control Afro head of hair. I peeked out from behind round wire-rimmed glasses and long, straight hair. We both wore tuxedos and smiles as proud groomsmen in Opie’s wedding. Opie, had always been the steady, loyal friend to Kevin and me. He was the Tonto to our Lone Ranger and the faithful Mingo

Taking Refuge

An Outdoorsman’s Journal

BY STEVE NORLING Well the crane count is semi-official; there is one crane colt on the refuge. Sometimes the parents act like they are feeding two but the second one has never been observed. That includes from a flyover by a DNR plane, which took and excellent picture of the parents and the one colt. The nest on Meadow valley did not have as good of luck. When the parents had been sitting on the nest for five days longer than normal gestation period a crew went and checked the eggs and found that they were inviolable. However, we did learn one thing and that is that the cranes in this area will stay on the nest until the young hatch. There are a lot of theories as to why we have such a large amount of nest abandonments, and that is exactly what they are, theories. While a certain group swears that it is strictly a black fly problem, no one has been able to prove it. There are so many variables that no one really can know what the problem is without a lot more study. We will be getting four colts from Patuxent in the parentrearing project. This project will tell us a little more about the reintroduction of whooping cranes. Will these cranes that were raised by other cranes and released directly into the wild act different that the ones that were costume raised and let south by ultra-light? Another thing we need to learn is what the carrying capacity of any area is. We already know that whooping cranes need a large area when they nest and that they are very protective of their territory. With over one hundred cranes in the general area of the refuge, are we already over our ideal carrying capacity? We still have a lot of those unanswered questions. I personally do not believe that just continuing to lead more and more cranes south with ultra-lights is the answer. Just continuing to hand raise and lead cranes does not mean they are reintroduced. All it means is that you can hand raise them and lead them. Until we find out why the cranes are not producing young, we need to step back and do some real biological study. That was what Rich King attempted last year and what Brad Strobel is continuing with this year. We all want this project to succeed, but let’s do it scientifically. There is another endangered species on the refuge that should be flying by the time you read this. That species is the Karner Blue butterfly and their second flight of the year is about to begin. This flight is a couple of weeks late this year due to the late spring. They will be in the same areas where they were this spring. Just go out along the Karner Trail from the visitor center or the Lupine Loop north of Sprague Pool and stop, stand real still and watch the grass and flowers. They may be small but they are beautiful. By the time you read this, the blueberries should be just about at their peak. As with everything, they are late this year due to the late spring. If you find a good patch you will note that there are a lot of berries and they are a little bigger because of all the rain. Remember, you can walk anyplace on the refuge in your search for blueberries. There is a one gallon per day per person limit on the berries. That is to give everyone a fair chance to get some berries. This year’s day camp is filled up and a bunch of kids are looking forward to spending some time at the refuge. I am not sure about it because I volunteered to assist Kara and Katie as many days as they need me. I know for sure I am assisting with the fishing day. There are ten scouts signed up for the “Environmental Science” merit badge program on Saturday July 20th. Refuge Manager Doug Staller has said that there are room for five more scouts, so if you know any that would want to earn that merit badge there still may be a chance to get into the class. You cannot find a much better place to learn about environmental science than at a National Wildlife Refuge. The roads through the refuge are finally getting back to normal. The townships are finally able to get some of them graded. If it does not rain too much we should be good for the rest of the summer. Until next week, “See you at the refuge.”

to our Daniel Boone. Not only did he play those roles when the three of us conjured up fights with renegade Indians in the woods around Wonewoc, but he lived it as our friend. Quiet and soft-spoken, he remained unquestionable and stood steadfast to decisions Kevin and I made (no matter how dumb they sometimes were). Although Opie was probably never in a fight, he would have been the first into a fray to defend a friend. An undersized lineman on the football team, he played as he lived life: protecting his friends and sacrificed his own interests for others. And, he did it with a heart bigger than any of us could ever hope to possess. The picture from was a reminder to me that this was about when the thread began to loosen in our lives. Kevin was about to head off to the military. I was in the midst of college. Opie was marrying a high school sweetheart. We no longer traveled the same path, but now were veering off in our own directions. The broad, cocky smiles Kevin and I sported that day would have quickly disappeared had we known that the next time the three of us would be together would be at Opie’s funeral. Five short years after his wedding, Opie died unexpectedly from a blood clot. Shocked, I returned to Wonewoc and served as a pallbearer, along with Kevin and other close friends. The ugly irony was; I finally felt I did something for him after all the years of his faithful friendship. I do not remember many details from that day-who I talked with or topics discussed-but I felt the threads relax even more and our interwoven lives began to unravel. Death, careers, miles, and marriages had now become a part of our lives. Sadly, perhaps the adage about weddings funerals bringing people together is mostly true. However, these occasions help us savor the past and be more vigilant of the present and future.

Resident “Canada Goose” Update BY MARK WALTERS Hello friends, I lucked out when I was visiting the State Game Farm at Poynette and my friend Sara Kehrli, who is the Columbia and Sauk County wildlife biologist for the WDNR, invited me to go goose banding in Rock and Green Counties I had very little knowledge of how or exactly why this is done, and after doing field work and then interviewing Mike Foy, who is a WDNR wildlife biologist in Rock and Green Counties, and Kent Van Horn, who is a migratory bird ecologist for the WDNR, I consider myself an educated man on the subject. Monday, July 1st High 82, low 54 Here is the scoop, there are maybe ten WDNR employees and as many volunteers. Our first stop is a marshy pond near Albany and there are maybe 30 adult and this year’s young “resident” Canada geese on the water and grassy, brushy shoreline. The adults are molting, cannot fly and will not abandon their young. The technique to capture as many geese as possible is unique and affective. Three people in canoes and kayaks slowly work the geese, that are on the water, towards a predetermined location.. Biologists, technicians, LTE’s “limited term employees” and volunteers walk on each shoreline and slowly push the geese in the same direction. Eight people with 8-foot panels are waiting and when the geese arrive, they slowly come together and literally close a square around the geese. Resident Canada geese are a subspecies of the northern Ontario, Canada goose and are the largest of the species, and because of their body size are able to winter in much more difficult conditions. As Kent Van Horn explained to me, it is kind of like quail and pheasant, “small bodies”, hard winters, does not work. Large, bodied geese like residents or “maximus”, as they are also referred to, do very well in harsh climates and if they migrate at all, they only go to northern Illinois. Resident geese, Mississippi Valley or Maximus, were rediscovered in the early 60’s near Rochester, Minnesota and a small population was soon found in southern Wisconsin. Translocating adults with young took place until the mid 80’s when the population of residents hit a point (currently about 139,000 in Wisconsin) where they were not popular at all due to the messes that they leave on beaches, golf courses, and lawns. A hunting season to regulate the population was developed but that was not as simple as it sounds. While residents are growing in number, the northern Ontario birds are shrinking due to habitat destruction by snow geese. Cold, wet springs also have an affect on the Ontario birds The feds wanted documentation so that we were not harvesting too many of the birds from north of the border. That system is accomplished by banding birds in the upper Midwest and then sending money to Canada to band birds in the Hudson Bay area. When a hunter shoots a banded bird, which for us waterfowler hunters of which I am very proud to be one is a trophy, we send the band numbers into the feds and they complete their data, which allows them to determine the birds banding date and location. This is one of the ways that season bag limits are set. Another factor that works is Wisconsin’s Early Goose Season

which is held the first 15 days of September and the vast majority of birds that are harvested are residents, long before the northern birds have migrated south. (Is there anything prettier than a flock of big honkers coming into your dekes, feet down and you know you are going to get some shooting)? On this experience, I learned how to handle and band a Canada goose. I learned how to identify this years young by their tail feathers, especially the end half a dozen. Juvenile Canada geese have a v at the end of the feather, the adults are pointed. I learned that there was a lot of re-nesting this spring due to high water, which basically puts eggs under water. I once again learned that controlling populations of residents is not easy, they learn to fly over hunters and drop out of gun range to safe landings, which can often be residential areas. All means of controlling the population other then by hunting (oiling eggs, hazing with dogs, and actual elimination) just do not work in the political climate that we live in. So I say, come on hunters, teach them kids to hunt, learn how to make jerky, sausage or roast goose and knock some geese out of the sky this fall. Thanks for reading! Sunset
