Defending WIAA Division 1 champion Arrowhead boasts a strong core of returning players, including (from left) offensive guard George Panos, linebacker Matt Seitz, wide receiver Ricky Finco, linebacker Sam Seonbuchner and defensive lineman Billy Hirschfeld.

Arrowhead keeps its sharp edge By MARK STEWART

Town of Merton — Success, the Arrowhead Warhawks insist, will not change them. Three all-state players return to the defending Division 1 state champion. There are also three Division I recruits (and counting) and nine players who received mention on the Classic 8’s all-conference team. The Warhawks are the top team in the Journal Sentinel’s area rankings and most likely will hold a No. 1

Talent-rich Warhawks on a mission to defend their Division 1 state championship

ranking when the Associated Press state poll is released next week. They’re really good and a lot of their players already have accomplished so much. So at the start of the 2013 season the question for the Warhawks is simple: How will you maintain your edge?

“We just focus on having a perfect game,” senior linebacker Matt Seitz said. “Every time the offense gets the ball, we want to score. Every time the defense is out there, we want a stop. We want a three-andout every time, so that is what we put our energy to and focus on and forget about the state title even

though sometimes it’s hard.” To be honest, who would want to completely forget a campaign like 2012? Not only did Arrowhead go 13-0, but it really wasn’t challenged after opening the season with a come-from-behind victory over Minnetonka (Minn). Yet last week after the Warhawks had a strong showing in a scrimmage with Wisconsin Lutheran, Kenosha Indian Trail and Madison MePlease see ARROWHEAD, 7C

La Crosse got its first riverboat stop of the year Thursday — more than six weeks late. The Queen of the Mississippi docked for about six hours at Riverside Park. The boat, christened in 2012, is the first new overnight sternwheeler to sail the Mississippi River in two decades, according to American Cruise Lines. The 125 visitors provide a welcome economic boost for downtown businesses, said Dave Clements, executive director of the La Crosse Area Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.“We’re not putting heads in beds,” he said, “but they’re spending money.”High water and river conditions were blamed for the cancellation of six previous riverboat stops in July and August. But with a dozen more stops scheduled between now and Oct. 28, it likely won’t be the last. The Queen of the Mississippi is set to dock again Monday as it sails back downriver. The larger American Queen is scheduled to stop in La Crosse on Wednesday.

County refutes employment discrimination claim By Jonathan Anderson OF THE LAKELAND TIMES

Lawyers for Oneida County have issued a forceful, point-by-point rebuttal to allegations that the director of the county’s Forestry Department discriminated against a former seasonal employee.

Carrier details charter service pla UP North Airways announces intentions to airport commission By PENNY MULLINS EagleHerald news/online editor MENOMINEE – The first of what planners hope will be a succession of businesses has announced its intention to provide aviation ser-

Chad Kubick and Andy Hay, principals in UP North Airways, told the airport commission Tuesday of their plans to provide charter services at the local airport from their home base in Iron Mountain, Mich. If business is lucrative enough, they could eventually house aircraft locally to accommodate area travelers. Nancy Douglas, executive director of the Menominee Business

Development Corp. who has been working with the airport, counties and Explorer Solutions to develop more airport-based business and industry, introduced the two men at the commission meeting. Kubick, who has been involved in Kubick Aviation in Iron Mountain for 12 years, has joined forces with Hay, a representative of Integrated First Response, Great Lakes, an air ambulance provider. Together, they have formulated a

Chady Named LMASD Business Manager Comes From School District of Merton By Matt Gardner Leader Managing Editor Former business manager Wendy Brockert left the Lake Mills Area School District in late July, leaving a void in the District for the upcoming school year. That void was filled at Monday night’s School Board meeting, as the Board approved the contract of Robert Chady to be the new business manager for the District. Chady comes from the Merton School District, where

he served as the business manager for a year. Chady’s foray into school administration hasn’t been long, as he was involved with a few different non-profit organizations for 20 years after earning his undergraduate degree in public policy and administration from UW-Whitewater. Upon graduation, he got involved with the Boy Scouts of America (doing some work in Lake Mills, actually), then moved on to CHADY be a campaign director for United Way in Janesville and was also a club

director at the Boys and Girls Club in Fort Atkinson. Eventually, he decided that the non-profit business wasn’t for him, and part of that reason was because of his involvement with the Fort Atkinson School District Board, where he is currently president. He’s in his third term with the Fort Atkinson School District Board, and finishes up his current term in 2015. Coming out of college, Chady though that he was going to end up in city or county government, but found that the opportunities in the nonprofit organizations were a little more lucrative. “It was very rewarding on the heart, but wasn’t all that stimulating on the mind and in

the pocketbook,” Chady said. With a wife and two children, Chady decided he need to so something different and headed back to UWWhitewater to get a Master’s degree in school business management. He received that degree in 2012. “My school board experience in Fort Atkinson helped make these connections with the whole management side of school operations,” Chady said. “My undergraduate degree also aligned very well.” District Administrator Dean Sanders said one of the biggest qualities Chady had that set him apart from other candidates for the position was see CHADY, page 15

By Donovan Slack Gannett Washington Bureau Corresponent for Action Reporter Media

WASHINGTON — Members of Wisconsin’s congressional delegation applauded the decision announced by President Obama Saturday to let Congress vote on authorizing military action in Syria. Several members, including Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson, had urged him to take such action this past week. Republican Reps. Reid Ribble, Sean Duffy, Jim Sensenbrenner and Tom Petri and Democratic Rep. Mark Pocan all signed letters to Obama asking for a vote. “I’m glad the president made the right decision to consult Congress before taking military action in Syria,” Petri said after the president’s announcement. “I will be carefully reviewing what the president puts forward to Congress next

Researcher: La Crosse area Lyme disease reporting is more accurate than nationally By MIKE TIGHE

A new federal report’s contention that Lyme disease is as much as 10 times more common than reported doesn’t ring true in the La Crosse area, according to a Gundersen Health System researcher. As many as 300,000 Americans are diagnosed

As many as 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with tick-borne Lyme disease each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. But only 20,000 to 30,000 illnesses are reported annually. with tick-borne Lyme disease each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Monday. But

only 20,000 to 30,000 illnesses are reported annually, according to the CDC. “I’m absolutely not

surprised,” said Steve Callister, director of Gundersen’s microbiology research lab. “We’ve suspected for years that there was under reporting.” Although Wisconsin and Minnesota are two of 13 states leading the nation in diagnoses, the reporting lag is most common in the Northeast, Callister said.

“There are many, many more cases (in the Northeast) because of the higher populations,” but many go unreported, he said. Clinicians in those areas may not report cases because the process is so labor-intensive and they tire of it, he said. “Around the La Crosse See LYME, A5

A new day dawns through the fog on the Mill Race and Pearl Island near Putnam Park (left) Tuesday, Sept. 3, in Brodhead. A restoration project underway on the Mill Race and Pearl Island will offer more recreational opportunities for residents and visitors.

Mill Race restoration underway Pearl Island land will be cleaned up for more recreational opportunities By Tere Dunlap tdunlap@ BRODHEAD — Brodhead’s Mill Race, a manmade canal bordering the city’s west side, is awakening to a new life. Now in its 150th year, the Race and 160 acres of publicly owned land on Pearl Island, the resulting stretch of land between the canal and the Sugar River, are getting cleaned up, buffed up and dressed up for visitors and residents looking for hiking,

biking, canoeing, tubing and fishing adventure. A citizen group overseeing the improvements is now a subcommittee of Brodhead’s new economic development committee. The committee is hoping the restoration project, besides creating a recreational facility, will contribute to the city’s economic development and bring in more retail and commercial opportunities, said Kari Newcomer, a member of the Pearl Island Restoration project committee. “This will be a life-long

project” for the community, Newcomer added. The Pearl Island Recreation Corridor Project now has a $350,000 matching grant, received in November 2012, for a number of improvements. To meet the obligations of the grant, the committee needs to raise $350,000, which can be in the form of donated use of equipment, volunteer labor, cash donations or other matching grants. “This is not a city project,” Newcomer said. “City taxpayers’ money is not going into it.” Even before money was available, groups of volunteers had started digging into the work, and local companies have been making dona-

tions. Rich Vogel and Jeff Peterson climbed aboard to do cleanup work early in the project and now also steer volunteer talent and donated equipment to their most effective uses. Newcomer and Ric Genthe have taken on roles in marketing and public relations. Jerry Elmer and Amber Nelson-Foster round out the sub-committee. Dr. Dick L. Benesh has been pegged to be named the group’s head organizer and advisor, according to Newcomer. The Mill Race has been cleared and cleaned, making it safe for canoeing and tubing.

DNR hears testimony to proposed changes by Danielle Moe Register staff writer SPOONER - DNR representatives appeared in Spooner on Thursday, Aug. 15, for a public hearing on proposed amendments regarding shoreland zoning in NR 115, or Wisconsin’s Water Resources Act.   “When the rule went into effect in 2010, counties had a number of concerns about administration and implementation of the current standards,” explained Heidi Kennedy, water regulations and zoning specialist with the DNR. The proposed changes are an effort by the DNR to clarify and reduce the administrative burden produced from the current rule.   The proposed changes will affect four different sections of NR 115.  The impervious surface limits, the nonconforming structures standards, the vegetative management standards and reporting standards all have proposed changes. “In the end, shoreland zoning is a partnership ... between the state, DNR, the county, local

government and private property owners, to set the minimum standards for development near valuable waterways,” stated Kennedy.  Opposition to the rule changes permeated the testimonials of individuals that offered their comments to the DNR. The unknown long-term effects of increasing the allowance for impervious surface standards received the most criticism.  “We are simply giving approval to destroy the lakes and the environment in our area,” stated Carol Breck of Barnes. Robert Drayer of Bayfield County pointed out that highly developed lakes such as those in the southern portion of the state would not be negatively impacted by the changes compared to the lakes in northern Wisconsin  “What would be OK on Winnebago would destroy the Great Divide lakes,” stated Drayer. The DNR defines impervious surfaces as driveways, rooftops, patios and other hard surfaces.  The more impervious surfaces on a prop-

Attorney general defends lawmaker’s immunity claim STEVEN VERBURG, 608-252-6118

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said Tuesday that he believes in the open records law, but that doesn’t mean legislators can be forced into court to make them comply with the statute. Van Hollen’s state Department of Justice filed a motion in Dane County Circuit Court last week claiming that state Sen. Leah Vukmir, R-Wauwatosa, is immune from lawsuits — including a pending open records suit — while she is in office. But open records advocates said Vukmir and Van Hollen are trying to expand the reach of a state constitutional provision

consin Freedom of Information Council. “The framers of the Constitution inserted this provision — com- Vukmir mon among state constitutions — to give temporary protection to lawmakers from civil suits while they are doing the people’s work,” Van Hollen said in a statement. “Whether the framers’ decision to provide this unique protection to legislators was a proper balancing of interests is a debatable question. What is not debatable is my responsibility to defend its application when it is invoked.” Van Hollen has fallen under

counsel Brendan Fischer. It’s not plausible that Vukmir has no documents related to the model legislation or other matters discussed at the conference, Fischer said. At the time the lawsuit was filed, ALEC began claiming that its documents weren’t subject to state records laws because they were stamped with a disclaimer claiming they were exempt and because they were distributed through Internet file sharing sites called “drop boxes.” Vukmir has not commented, and she didn’t return an email Tuesday. State Department of Justice spokeswoman Dana September 18, 2013 7:09 pm / Brueck wouldn’t say whether Van Hollen accepts ALEC’s claims.

BRIEFS Woman followed from store, mugged A man stole cash Saturday night from a woman he had seen with a bank envelope in the checkout line at a Kenosha supermarket, according to police. The Kenosha woman, born in 1959, said she was checking out in the liquor line at the store in the 5700 block of 75th Street while two men were talking together in the line behind her. She paid with cash from a large amount in a Johnson Bank envelope. After she left the store about 10 p.m., she loaded her purchases into a stroller and started to walk home. She was headed north on 57th Avenue when the bald man who had been behind her in line started to act like he was sick. The woman said she offered to call a rescue squad, and he then snatched her purse and ran off. He took the bank envelope out and threw the purse on the ground. Witnesses were able to give police a description of the car he got into before leaving the area, but no arrests had been made.

Driver accused of drinking hits pole A Kenosha man who crashed into a utility pole after speeding away from a stop sign Saturday evening was cited for driving drunk, according to police. Jason Potenberg, 26, squealed his tires as he pulled away from a stop sign to make a left turn from 61st Street onto Seventh Avenue about 7:15

Lawyer wants new DNA check Trial in 2012 death might be delayed until next year BY JANINE ANDERSON


A Kenosha County sheriff’s deputy escorts Javier Garcia from court earlier this year. Garcia’s attorney wants a review of DNA evidence from the clothing of the victim, Lisa Marie Mezera. The man charged with killing Lisa Marie Mezera last summer wants more work done on DNA found on her clothes. Mezera was found dead in August 2012 in B’nai Zedek Cemetery, 1760 Sheridan Road. She had been beaten and strangled, and evidence suggested her killer tried to sexually assault her. Police charged Javier

Garcia, 53, of Kenosha, with the crime. He had been set to go to trial this month, but that has been pushed back, possibly into early 2014. Garcia was the last person seen with MeLisa Marie zera. He pleadMezera ed not guilty to first-degree intentional homicide and felony battery,

among other crimes. He is in prison in Waupun, after his supervision was revoked late last year. If convicted, he faces life in prison. Defense attorney Terry Rose wants a closer look taken at DNA found on Mezera’s underwear. Garcia’s DNA was found on the waistband, Rose said, but testing showed DNA was also found from three other male subjects. He wants those profiles to be isolated and matched against the state DNA database, to see if there are any matches. Rose, who was appointed to represent Garcia by the State Public Defender’s Office, has asked permission to bring an expert in to testify about how those DNA profiles could be

matched with the database. The State Crime Lab has not done that, Rose said, because the samples are from a mixture of DNA. “I’m saying you can take the DNA, separate out the three males whose DNA was found, compare that to the index and see what turns up,” he said. “Maybe it’s nothing. Maybe it’s something. If something turns up, we don’t have an incomplete investigation in the Garcia case.” The expert Rose wants to bring in has created software which can help this kind of DNA analysis. He hopes to have word this week from the Public Defender’s Office on whether or not the expert will be allowed.

Man, 84, convicted of abusing girl 20 years ago BY JANINE ANDERSON An 84-year-old man was convicted Friday of molesting a child, for abuse dating back to 1989. Everett Sennholz, of Kenosha, faces up to 100 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of four counts of sexual assault of a child under the age of 13. Each charge has the pos-

sibility of 25 years in prison and 15 years on supervised release, and he could be required to register as a sex offender. Sennholz’s victim told police the abuse started when she was 5 years old, and happened regularly until she was 12 years old, and she said she realized that what he was doing was wrong. The four charges were for

specific instances the girl recalled. Sennholz knew the girl’s family. The girl said Sennholz touched her genitals, and forced her to touch his penis. The incidents she reported to police happened in a house that was about to be torn down, a service station, and at Sennholz’s home. The girl also told police that in August 2010 she called him, and he

denied doing some of the things of which she accused him, but did admit to kissing her belly. He told the girl that he did not know why he did “those things,” that he was sorry and wished he could take it back. Sennholz was taken into custody after his conviction; he had been out of custody on bond. His sentencing is set for Oct. 17.

Rice Lake senior linebacker Austin Roberts has committed to play football in the Big Ten for Illinois. For more prep football photos, visit

Roberts’ work ethic makes him leader of Rice Lake defense, future Division I player By Jason Cox Leader-Telegram staff RICE LAKE — Austin Roberts is big, fast and strong. But that alone wasn’t enough to get him a spot on a Big Ten football team. He got that because he wanted it — badly. And when the senior linebacker from Rice Lake sets his mind to something, there’s not much that can stop him.

After a standout junior year last season, Roberts set his sights this offseason on getting an offer to play college football, preferably from a Big Ten school. Northwestern and Minnesota were out of the question because they weren’t look“Whatever he’s doing, he grinding to ing for linebackers, so he narrowed down make sure he’s got it,” Rice Lake coach his options.

He’s got the impressed at a camp in June, the Fighting physical tools, intelligence and a burning Illini offered him a spot, which he gladly accepted. desire.”

“That was honestly my dream come true,” Roberts said. “I’ve wanted to play college football ever since I could hold a football when I was a little baby. It was spectacular. (Illinois) was everything I look for in a school. From the academic counselors to the football staff to the football itself. They have a young team, so if I stay healthy and things work out right, God-willing I’ll play my freshman year.” Earning a spot at a Division I school in a BCS power conference isn’t an easy thing to do for someone from Rice Lake.

Dunn-St. Croix title race will be one to watch What’s up in the Dunn-St. Criox Conference? It already boasts the defending Division 7 state champion, but it looks like there are four or more teams in the neighborhood ready to challenge for the driver’s seat. In fact, the WIAA may have to forego bringing Division 7 teams to Camp Randall and just declare the D-SC winner state champion and save a lot of gas money. For instance, the Vikings — Colfax that is — won only two games last year, none in the conference. That was last year.

Attempted homicide charged in drug-de BY JANINE ANDERSON A Kenosha man police say stabbed someone trying to buy drugs in June has been charged with attempted homicide. Nicholas E. Delaney, 25, could spend up to 45 years in prison if convicted. He appeared in court this week on the case. Police went to Kenosha

Hospital on June 13, after staff reported a stabbing victim had come in for treatment. The victim’s nurses said the male patient had a puncture wound to the left side, in his rib cage area, according to court records. The victim told police he and a friend had been communicating with Delaney about buying marijuana, according to the criminal

complaint, and that at 9:30 p.m. they picked Delaney up and drove to the area of 63rd Street and 17th Avenue to buy the drugs. When they got back to the HarborPark area, the victim said his friend and Delaney began to argue, and Delaney accused the victim of “ripping him off,” and became very angry.

Kimberly junior Spencer Hermus, a starting safety, attempts to make a tackle on Menasha running back Dylan Szews during the opening half of the Papermakers' 45-30 win over the Bluejays in the opening week of the prep football season at Calder Stadium in Menasha.

Kimberly passes early season test By Michael Graber Sports Editor MENASHA – It wasn’t pretty by any means, or that picture perfect outing most have come to expect. But, in the end, it got the job done, and was good enough for week one. The Kimberly football team scratched and clawed their way past Menasha on Friday night, surviving a rather sluggish first half and then opening it up in the second half to earn a 45-30 victory over the Bluejays inside Calder Stadium. After a stiff test from a quality opponent, and a few hiccups along the way – maybe more than expected – head coach Steve Jones felt the outing might be just what his Papermakers needed from their season opener. “I think they were tested early and we had a great opponent the

Papermakers shored things up, started to make plays at – or beyond – the line of scrimmage and allowed just one fourth-quarter touchdown. Senior Matt Weinhold believed the difference in the two halves was his teammates playing mistake free football, reading their assignments, and executing a game plan. “We changed up our scheme a little bit,” he said. “We started to read our keys and they started to smash that iso, and they were doing a great job in the second half. It showed, we scored 20 points and they only scored six. It was good.” Tyler Johnson was certainly good in the opening half of play, scoring three times on runs of four, six, and 80 yards. The Bluejays’ junior signal-caller rolled up 312 yards of total offense, with 181 coming on the ground and

Next week: Fond du Lac Next week’s game isn’t so much about the opponent coming to town, but who is on their sideline. It’s just another game for the Kimberly football program, according to head coach Steve Jones, and they will obviously take that approach into the week of preparation. But the game will receive a little more hype with Steve Jorgensen returning as part of the coaching staff for Fond du Lac. In his second season with the Cardinals, Jorgensen’s team didn’t fare well in the season opener, falling to Appleton North 37-12 at home.

UP FRONT NORTHWEST WISCONSIN - With the hottest days of summer here and temps in the humid 90s, do not leave your pets out in a car, even with the window cracked or with air conditioning on. It can take only five minutes for an animal to die of heat stroke. You wouldn’t leave your kids in the car, and you shouldn’t leave your pets in the car, either. Also, be sensitive to your outdoor pet’s needs. Make sure that any pets that are housed outside have access to shade, and be sure to put out extra water for them during these extremely hot days. Older animals that have a thick coat and tend to soil themselves can get maggot strike, so check your old dogs often to make sure that they are handling the heat OK. - from Tammi’s Wildlife Rescue and Wellness Center, Frederic

Laid-off housekeepers say county denying job transfers Privatization cost them their positions By STEVE SCHULTZE

Milwaukee County housekeepers laid off more than 31⁄2 years ago say they have been unfairly denied transfers to other county jobs. Few of the nearly 90 former county housekeepers landed other county positions, despite multiple applications made. Under county and union contract rules, the three-year time frame for special consideration for

those posts. The housekeepers were paid between $13.95 and $15.75 an hour at the county. They received a chance to apply for jobs with the private company hired to replace the county janitors, and at least two did that. Putaraksa and many others did not go that route because they said the pay and benefits were inferior — $5 to $8 an hour less. That was not enough to live on, said Clairette Riley, who worked nearly nine years as a county janitor. “That pay was too low,” she said. She’s only worked sporadically since the layoff at private employers and has been

There is much treasure to be had THIS IS THE season to harvest the treasures of the North Woods. Granted, many of us have been gathering and eating and storing treasures like walleye, perch and bluegill for several months, and for the most part blueberry and raspberry pickers have done their thing as well. But the real harvesting of the treasures is just beginning, starting with what looks to be a bumper crop of blackberries. I say a bumper crop, even though my honey hole of last year, which from an area
