 In an effort to showcase the area and what local businesses do, business owners in Stock-holm have come together to create the first annual "Eventive Stockholm" day on April 26. From 9:30 to 5:30, with time for lunch, visitors from near and far will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on, creative, engaging, and enjoyable experi-ences in Stockholm.

"We're just going to see what happens." Three total events are sched-uled for the year, starting with the first on Saturday. Events will is against the law, and the action was not properly noticed. James Goss was appointed as Pepin/Buffalo County Veterans Service Officer. The Board ap-proved the appointment. Six can-didates were interviewed for the position. Pat Poeschel, from the Land Conservation Department, spoke to the Board regarding the Out-door Recreation Aids resolu-tion. She explained the State is requiring counties that receive snowmobile trail aids adopt a resolution. She said the County isn't acquiring land, but is going to continue to receive money to maintain the trails. Poeschel said they have approximately a year to get the resolution on file to satisfy the State's requirement. The Board tabled the resolution after discussion in order to more thoroughly notice the action. The resolution will go back to committee, and return to the full Board next month. The annual Land Conservation report was postponed for the next meeting. An amendment to Ordinance No. 179-Pepin County Code of Ordinances, revisions to Chapter 6 Emergency Management was approved.

 In office since January 1987, John Andrews, Pepin County Sheriff, announced that he will not seek re-election earlier this month. Andrews' law enforcement career began in the early 1970s, when he worked as a dispatcher in Pepin County for three years. He then worked in Grundy Cen-ter, Iowa, for a short period of time before moving back to Minnesota. Andrews returned to Pepin County in 1978, and worked in Plum City for eight years before running for sheriff. "At that time, several people were running for sheriff, so I put my name out there as an option," Andrews said. "There was some controversy in the department at the time, and I ran on the Demo-cratic ticket." Andrews said five were in the running for sheriff that year, and he campaigned, and won the election. "I had a plan to be here for 10 years," he said. "That would have been 18 years ago. I just never quit." Andrews described his time as sheriff as a good run. He an-nounced his retirement three weeks ago. "I knew there was other inter-est, so I decided to make a career change," Andrews said. He said he is looking at differ-ent business ventures, and plans to travel, and spend more time with family and friends. Andrews said one of the big-gest changes he has witnessed is the increase in the amount of drugs, and because of that, an increase in mental health issues, and deterioration of families. "That causes problems for not only law enforcement, but for society in general," he said. "We keep putting bandaids on peo-ple with programming, but the real problem is never really ad-dressed." Andrews said he can remem-ber when he was studying at the University of Minnesota, no-fault divorces were common, and chil-dren were not, and should not, be a part of the divorce, which al-lowed people to go their separate ways. "Now we have children who grow up without supervision or direction in their life," he said. "They get into the judicial sys-tem, and most make it through, but some don't. They then deal with law enforcement, and the  jails deal with them." Andrews said in the 1970s, it was unusual to have anyone in  jail, other than maybe one or two people. "Now, our average just in Pepin County is 16 or 17, plus those we hold from outside the county," he said. "We have more

Durand BOE recognizes Radle for years of service
Tammy Hoyt and Bill Yingst took an oath of office after being re-elected to the school board this month.
 In a regular meeting held pril 16, the Durand Board of ducation reviewed results of he facilities study, and thanked alen Radle for his many years f service on the school board, as he meeting was the last one for adle. The consent agenda, including he agenda, minutes of the regu-ar meeting March 19, vouchers, nd the treasurer’s report, was pproved. The junior class president and ice president appeared before he board to report on student ac-ivities. They reported on the Ac-demic Decathlon Team, foren-sics, the musical, reality check, nd other events and activities. Principals Bill Clouse and Eri-a Johnson reported on Educator ffectiveness. Educator Effec-iveness will go into effect for he 2014-15 school year, and im-acts how teachers are evaluated. Johnson reported they have spent the last two years trying o gague educator effectiveness. he said one of the biggest af-ects for administrators and eachers have been SLOs, or Stu-ent Learning Objectives written y the teachers. Administrators omplete School Learning Ob-ectives. Johnson reported this helps he staff do a better job of taking eaningful data. Each teacher oes two SLOs per year. Johnson said many teachers already com-lete SLOs, but Educator Effec-iveness will make the objectives ore thorough. Clouse reported educators are scored on a four-point scale, and said the district wants twos and hrees, but not ones. He said twos nd threes are quality educators, nd a four-rating is a place teach-rs will visit, but can’t maintain n a day-to-day basis. Clouse said there is a rated year, then wo non-rated years. Clouse said the Department f Public Instruction determines he years. First-year teachers au-omatically get rated in their first nd second year. Clouse said a lot of time is nvolved, and he is interested to see the impact the program has n learning. Board members Bill Yingst nd Tammy Hoyt took an oath f office after being re-elected arlier this month, and Superin-endent Greg Doverspike shared 014 election results. An out-of-state travel request as made by Mrs. Johnson and he 3rd grade team to travel to he Minnesota Science Muse-m. The trip will be funded by students, the third grade budget, nd the fundraiser account. The undraiser account through the TO will also help offset any ost shortages for students that re unable to afford the trip. The oard approved the request. Doverspike reported no hange in the summer school fferings, and the requests were pproved as presented. Representatives from SDS Ar-hitects and Market & Johnson were present at the meeting to present the findings of the facil-ities study. The study started in February. Data collection and documentation was completed in February and March, recommen-dations and budgets are being worked on in April, and concepts and approach will be completed in May through July, with option refinement in August. The representatives reported that the facilities are well-main-tained, and there were no major surprises, though some issues were reported in the original part of the high school building. A number of issues were pointed out at Caddie Woodlawn, and the representative said the building is outdated and un-der-utilized. A pitched parking lot was recommended at Arkansaw Ele-mentary School to allow water to drain, and to replace well equip-ment. 2015 high school classes un-der the policy minimum were presented by Clouse. Many of the classes are either combined with another class, transcripted credit with CVTC, AP, or taught via distance learning. The class list was approved. Mrs. Johnson, along with Ryan Miller, Kathy Forster, and Wendy Arneson proposed the creation of a summer reading program throughout the district. The teachers presented to the Board, and sought approval for use of a school van for a book-mobile. They stated there is a reading loss in the summer, and hope with a summer bookmo-bile, the loss will be curbed. The teachers stated the pro-gram would focus on 4K through fifth grade, and 14 teachers have already volunteered their time to help over the summer. The pro-gram will offer read-aloud time, book check-out, and snacks. The program is hoped to be offered at Memorial Park, AES, Eau Galle Park, Rock Falls park, and Tarrant Park every Tuesday. Funding will come from the Title I budget, and the Scholas-tic Literacy Partnership program. When done with the books, they get handed out to students. One teacher reported talking to students about the potential program, and they were very excited. Doverspike thanked the teachers for coming, and said he thought the cost of gas was a good investment. He said ad-ministration supports the idea, and noted it was commendable for the 14 or so teachers who had volunteered their time over the summer. The Board approved. A contract with MJ Care for SBS and MAC was approved at a cost of approximately $5,000. The Curriculum, Instruction, and Technology Committee met March 26, and recommended a middle school/high school En-glish textbook adoption. The goal is to purchase as many grades this year as the budget allows, and to purchase the remaining materials in future years. The Board approved. The Facilities, Finance, and Transportation Committee met April 10. Doverspike reported the purchase of a new scoreboard for the main gym was approved using advertising dollars. The current scoreboards will go to the new gym. A new sound system is hoped to be installed in the main gym by graduation, and it will be used for all events. The committee also recom-mended a lunch and breakfast price increase of 10 cents for students, a 25 cent lunch increase for staff, and 15 cent breakfast increase for staff. Doverspike said the school is seeing a dras-tic decline, and is serving 14,500 less meals now than two or three years ago. The Board approved. Doverspike reported the net defecit is currently at $160,000 for the 2014-15 budget. The CVTC Academy Program meeting was postponed until Thursday. Doverspike reminded the Board Durand is hosting the WASB new board meeting on April 17 in the high school caf-eteria. Doverspike reported the new bill regarding minute require-ments was signed into law, which means there is no longer a 180 day requirement for school. Doverspike said this gives the school some more flexibility in calculating summer school min-utes for state aid purposes. The WIAA is keeping con-ference realignment responsi-bilities. The private school mul-tiplier was pushed to an ad-hoc committee. Recommendations will be presented to the WIAA by September 1, and to the Board of Control by December 1. Clouse reminded the Board that graduation is May 23 at 7 p.m. The next meeting will be held May 21.
Local couple opening fitness center in Pepin
Brad and Danni Noel, pictured with their son, Landon, are opening “Forever Fit” in Pepin. A grand opening will be held this weekend, and the 24/7 hours of operation will begin Wednesday, April 30.

 Brad and Danni Noel, who have lived in Pepin all their lives, said they remember the fitness center in Pepin, but never used it. “I believe it hasn’t been a fit-ness center since we were still in high school, or close to it,” Danni said. The Noels are reopening the center, Forever Fit, this weekend. “Brad has always wanted to do something like this, and has looked into different businesses,” Danni said. “We’re more into fit-ness now ourselves, and we think this is a good thing for the com-munity.” “About two months ago, I called the owner of the building to see what his plan was for it,” Brad said. “He told me he want-ed to see it become a fitness cen-ter, and wanted someone in the area to run and manage it.” The goal of Forever Fit is to encourage healthy lifestyles in the community, Danni said. “It’s family-friendly, open 24 hours, and will offer a supervised play room on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings,” she said. The 24/7 fitness facility will offer Zumba for kids and adults, reflexology by appointment, and a full range of cardio training and strength training equipment. “We’re hoping to eventually incorporate a trainer,” Brad said. “That would be ideal.” “There’s something for every age group,” Danni said. “We have something everyone can use, whether they’re training for a marathon or just want to be heart healthy. Both the Noels plan to main-tain their full-time jobs—Danni is a counselor in the Plum City School District, and Brad works construction. Brad said they hope to provide a positive place the community can use. “There’s more and more re-search about being heart healthy,”Danni said. “We want to encour-age healthy lifestyles, and want to offer an environment for peo-ple to exercise and destress.” The Noels said they are open to suggestions on how to im-prove and create a place that fitspeoples’ needs. A grand opening will be heldSaturday and Sunday from 9 a.m.to 5 p.m., and Monday and Tue-sady from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Freereflexology will be offered onSunday from 10-5. Danni saidpeople are welcome to comethose four days to work out for free, check the facility out, and sign up for memberships. Free zumba classes will alsobe offered for adults on Satur-day from 9-9:30, Sunday from1-1:30, and Monday and Tuesdayfrom 6-6:30. Free kids Zumbaclasses will be offered Saturdayfrom 9:30-10, and Sunday from1:30-2. 24/7 facility hours beginWednesday, April 30.

y larger industry, and the pop-lation makeup has changed. Not ll change is bad." Andrews said he doesn't feel he bandaid approach is correct. "Problems need to be proper-y dealt with," he said. "I believe he answer is supporting family structure." Andrews said the biggest issue the department will be facing is monies and budgetary issues. "For the last 10 years, jail staff-ing has been an issue," he said. "The State wants us to increase staffing. We've had success keep-ing the staff at a status quo, but an increase will be difficult." Andrews said Pepin County has a very fine staff in its jail. "They're excellent," he said. They know their jobs and are well-trained, and very profes-sional." On the patrol side, Andrews said the largest issue will be to stay trained on issues relating to technology and cyber crimes. "I know there are a lot of them going on," he said. "A lot will be taken out by state agencies. We can just take the reports and for-ward them on." Andrews said he has never believed having an investigator in Pepin County has been some-thing to discuss. "We have five patrol deputies, and if you take investigations away from them, they become very stagnant," Andrews said. "A special team is brought in for major crimes, but any one of our deputies are very capable of in-vestigating." The Pepin County Sheriff's Department has 18 members on staff, including 10 in the jail and dispatch center, five deputies, the chief deputy, a secretary, and the sheriff. "I can't say enough about the people who work here," Andrews said. "The department is a well-oiled machine. They're the ones who make the department." Working in a small commu-nity, Andrews said one of the most important things is working closely with other agencies in the county. "The size of your organization doesn't matter," he said. "You still have the same kinds of crimes as larger organizations, but the vol-ume isn't as high. We operate dif-ferently and have to learn how to deal with people better." Andrews said if an officer re-sponds to a situation that has escalated, the officer has to talk their way through. "I think our officers have more tact in dealing with people," he said. "It may not be the safest  job, but our officers are more capable. It's basically a survival thing." Another benefit to working in a small community is knowing everyone. "Especially with people we've dealt with before, we know how they will act or react," Andrews said. "We are able to have a good read on who they are. We never pretend to have all the answers, but we can respond in a positive way." Andrews also offered some advice to the next Pepin County Sheriff. "Don't micromanage the de-partment," he said. "You need to recognize the staff's capability,and put the staff first." Andrews said it is important for the next sheriff to remember what their job really is. "You are here to protect and serve the people of Pepin Coun-ty," he said. "Don't make it all about you and your legacy. It's about your department and the people you serve." Andrews said he really val-ues the staff in the Pepin County Sheriff's Department. "They've been my law en-forcement family, and we've had a good relationship through theyears," he said. "I want to thank the people of Pepin County for supporting me in my 28 years as sheriff, and my wife, Vicki, for standing by my side for all these years."

 Beth Anderson was appointed as a citizen member to the Board of Health. Dorothy Peters was appointed as a citizen member to the Human Services Board. Chairman Pete Adler stated he wanted to keep the two seats on the ADRC open for now to give the committee time to look over their options. He said he felt at least one member should be someone on the Human Services Board. No other public comments were offered. Adler notified the Board of the Wisconsin Counties Association Meeting in Eau Claire April 24. He said he was unable to attend, but the meeting is for new and old members. Supervisor Sean Scallon gave a brief Land Conservation Com-mittee update, and said a con-tract for park maintenance was approved. The committee is also discussing a washout by a dock in one of the parks. The meeting was adjourned after a brief discussion regarding committee reports.calls. Sinz said previously, the am-bulance has canceled, went back to the fire hall, did their paper-work, and were done. Now, the state is recommending going to the scene, making contact, and getting a waiver signed. Six to-tal policies were presented to be approved. The Council requested time to review the policies, and will bring questions back to the next meeting. Milliren reported the Council agreed that another major project following the Washington Street
Project may be pushed further than two years due to the major funding needed. A discussion was also held regarding the re-placement of all old water meters in the City, and making payments on the purchase, rather than set-ting aside money to purchasemeters in sections. A meeting was held April 23.

"I've already been pproached by a couple."Starting late last fall, Nugent aid he had a chat with a few wners of businesses that are pen year-round."We tried to think of what we ould do to keep things going," e said. "We came up with this dea, and started with the April ate. The idea is to not just create sale or shopping experience, ut to offer something you can't et anywhere else."Nugent said businesses that re open year-round have been nstrumental in this event. "There are about five of us pen all year, and a couple eren't able to participate in the rst event, but want to in the fu-ure," he said. "It's been exciting o see the response so far."Nugent said market research as completed to get feedback rom guests to find out what they ould like to do other than just rive through or shop.The first Eventive Stockholm ill offer nine experiences to hoose from, with the opportuni-y to participate in any number of he sessions throughout the day.

Or ou can select the ones that stand ut."A break is built into the day or lunch."It was up to the individual usinesses to create their experi-nce," Nugent said. "We had the aveat to do hands-on, creative hings. People will have the op-ortunity to learn to do some-hing different and exciting."Nugent said all of the sessions re taught by local artists or are ocal-inspired. "One thing, the Saami histo-y session, isn't local, but it has n interesting historical tie," he aid. Stockholm's typical "busy sea-on" is May through November, nd the village is especially bus-ling in October when people are ut to see the colorful leaves.While a one of the sessions is ree, most require a small fee to over the cost of materials. Nu-gent said nothing is built into the fee for profit. "We wanted to keep it afford-able so everything is approach-able," he said. "We don't want this to be unattainable to anyone. The cool thing about Stockholm, from the Gallery to Hugga Bug-ga, is that there is every type of experience available." The sessions begin with an apple tree planting, grafting, and growing experience at Maiden Rock Winery Cidery. Particpants will learn about basic spring care for apple trees, and how to pre-pare trees for the year. Orchard staff will provide considerations on apples to grow, how to pro-ceed with selecting varieties, and when/if you would want to con-sider grafting. The session is lim-ited to 15 people, and runs from 9:30-10:15. Next is the sampling event at The Stockholm Pie Company from 10:15-10:45, featuring two of the newest pies, Markus' Ap-ple Beer and Lar's Layered Choc-olate Cream, as well as the most famous pie, the Double Lemon. Participants will also learn how the recipe for the beer pie came about. The sampling event is lim-ited to 10 people. An interior design session will be held at the Abode Gal-lery from 10:45-11:15 to talk about the current hottest trends in fabrics, flooring, and tile.

Participants will learn the history of hard ap-ple cider, sample cider, and tour the production area and cider or-chard. The session is limited to 15 people. "Only one session repeats, while the others are unique," Nugent said. "Some people may choose to participate in all of the sessions, while others will choose three or four and take time to explore the village." Nugent said the event has some really cool people coming in. "I hope people will walk away with a sense of appreciation for learning new things for creativi-ty, and how exciting taking a step out of their day-to-day lives can be," he said. Nugent said they are encourag-ing sign-ups, and those interested in a session can call the business at which the session will be held. Nugent also said the Widespot will be offering a free event, "Shakes on the Lake," for Shake-speare's 450th birthday.
