From the Editor-news and notes
My daughter and I made our way up to Rhinelander to share our dollars to do our holiday shopping on Black Friday. I haven’t been a part of this annual event for several years. I found it, oh somewhat like a store over-filled with crazy middle of the night shoppers like us. Lines were scattered throughout the store for the one item everyone wanted. We found what was on our lists and escaped to the nearest all-night McDonalds. That was an experience in itself. The line was long, they were well under-staffed, and their menu selection was limited. I felt sorry for the cashier who was elderly working her first night shift that was filled with Black Friday starving shoppers. We made our way home in the drizzle that covered the area. Come Cyber Monday my daughter was one of the millions that helped to drive up the annual online sales to 1.25 BILLIONS dollars, a 33% online sales. Will I ever do a Black Friday shopping spree again, I think about it next year. Are we done shopping for the items we didn’t get, nope. Not yet. When the thermostat says its 68 one day and 66 the next you would think someone was changing it behind your back. Not in our house, it just did it on its own. We called to the rescue John’s Repair from Suring to help fix the problem. It wasn’t the furnace but the thermostat that was wacky. Now if it were only 70 deg’s outside again that would make everyone happy this time of the year. It’s winter in the Northwoods which means COLD. Get Well Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors. UPCOMING EVENTS; See page 19 for all of the monthly events scheduled. The weather– It is now but a few days until the first day of winter. Lately our weather has been colder at night and comfy for sleeping, with the heat set at 68 degree’s. The temperature outside, however, in the 20’s at night and in the mid-low 30’s during the day. Reports of snow fall in the farther northwoods have come in but none in the Lakes Territory as of printing. Birthday Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors; Happy Birthday to my eldest sister Nancy in IL. My brother-in-law David in CO; cousin Kayla Bailey; cousin Christine in IL; to our friend at Flowers Galore in Wabeno; Ed-the owner of Lakewood Pour Haus, Keri Kaster and her mother-in-law Jeanne; Jeff Shaw-owner of Golden Eagle Pizza in Townsend, WI; Lloyd Baumgartner of Mountain, WI; and to my special teenage friend Brandon Reed of IL. Gas prices have gone down actually but not as much as they were a year ago. They’ve gone from $4 plus down to $3.35 and a penny or two of more or less.

Christmas Heart Tree Serves the Community
A joint effort by the fine folks at the Christian Pantry and the Lakewood Supervalu is underway. Located in the Triple Play Café inside the Lakewood Supervalu you will find a tiny Christmas tree festooned with red heart decorations. Each heart has information regarding a local child participating in the program. You can choose the heart ‘child’ you want to purchase a gift for, wrap the gift, please remember to secure the heart to the gift so it will get to the correct child, and return it to the Lakewood SuperValu by December 4th. The distribution of the gifts is taken care of by some of Santa’s finest helpers here in the northwoods. So join in the joyous nature of the Season and stop in and choose a heart today!

The Mission/Evangelism Committee of Forest Larger Parish Presbyterian Church began the celebration of Thanksgiving and Christmas on Tuesday, November 15. They delivered Christmas Child Shoeboxes to the drop-off site at Praise Chapel in Crandon, hams to the New Hope Homeless Shelter, hams to Mike’s in Townsend (with coupons for the hams going to the Christian Food Pantry at St. John’s), and hams to New-Cap in Crandon. Also being delivered to New-Cap were two bags of hand-knit caps, gloves and scarves for children that were made by female inmates who knit for others while they are incarcerated. The Homeless Shelter also received a bag of hand-knit scarves and wraps from the same women that could be used as welcoming gifts for new residents.

The McCauslin's Lions and Lioness Organizations continue to realize the importance and value of getting books into children's hands. They understand that the only book some students receive is the one donated by them. Every child treasures receiving a book. You may think in this time of high tech toys a book would hold no value, but come for a visit the day the books are delivered and you will realize how important a book is to every one of our students. For years, along with the Wabeno Lion's Club, these organizations have strived to donate money to the Wabeno Elementary school toward the purchase of a book for each and every student. This year the organization donated $1,136.50 for this cause. We would like to extend our greatest thanks for encouraging our students to read. It is truly a gift.

“My Journey” By Bonnie Vrchota
Around the age of 50, those of us who were sun worshippers or never wore sunscreen, start to see those nasty age spots appearing on the left side of face (from driving) and on the tops of our hands, along with any exposed skin we abused to the sun. We also see the start of wrinkles around our eyes, lips and neck! I have the scoop from my dermatologist on what to do & use. I went to Ulta and Drugstore.com, to find the ingredients she suggested. They both had what I was looking for at a reasonable price. The product Alpha Hydrox offers the ingredients needed: Hydroquinone 2% (a lightening agent) and Alpha Hydroxy acids (10%-12%) to exfoliate the skin and help quicken the lightening process. Similar to a chemical peel and microderm abrasion, these products will give your skin a smoother appearance. Use at night after cleansing your skin. You will need a good moisturizer without alpha hydroxy acids to reduce skin irritation. Your skin might be more sensitive and you’ll need to wear a sunscreen, SPF 30, to keep the spots and wrinkles at bay. However, the results will make you happy, especially if you have dehydrated skin, dark pigmentation or freckles. Start slow to see how your skin reacts to these products. Try to avoid them during the late spring to early fall months. I talked about lightening dark skin spots and smoothing wrinkles using Alpha Hydrox products. Add a moisturizer base with AHA to apply over your face after using Alpha Hydrox AHA products. Products with beta hydroxy acid or salicylic acid are better used on oily skin with blackheads and whiteheads. Alph Hydroxy acids are better used on thickened, sun-damaged skin where breakouts are not a problem. Some simple guidelines to use when using Alpha Hydroxy Acid products. Choose skin care products/ cosmetics that don’t contain AHA to help reduce further skin irritation while using Alpha Hydrox products. Cleansers with AHA are simply washed off before absorption occurs, so they aren’t very effective. Baby shampoo or baby wash as a cleanser are very gentle on your skin & eyes. Use a sunscreen with at least SPF 15, but 30 is better. It should contain avobenzone, titanium dioxide, or zinc oxide for UVA protection. I use Coppertone oil free faces 30 SPF and Neutrogena Age Shield Hand cream SPF 30. When starting an AHA skin regime, start with a lower concentrations (5%, 8% and a pH of 3-4). If the AHA is listed as the 2nd or 3rd ingredient on the list, it probably has the proper concentration. Remember, Drugstore.com & Ulta both carry Alpha Hydrox products. Enjoy your mini-microderm abrasion regimen. Next month: Microderm abrasion machines.

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam
Osteoporosis: Not Just an Elderly Disease
It used to be that osteoporosis was considered a disease that affected only the elderly. We particularly associated osteoporosis with older women. Today, the truth is that an estimated 20 million American women suffer from osteoporosis, and 80 percent of them don't even know it. Many people confuse osteoporosis with arthritis, and wait for swollen joints and discomfort before being tested. Even though osteoporosis is painless until a bone fracture occurs, it is important to find out how healthy your bones are now and if need be, adjust your lifestyle to avoid this brittle bone disease. The following tips may help to maintain healthy bones:

Start a regular exercise program. Walking, skipping rope, jogging, playing racquet sports, swimming and aerobics are all helpful in reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Exercising for 20 minutes, three times a week, is helpful.

Although weight lifting exercises are generally recommended, the National Osteoporosis Foundation says those suffering from osteoporosis should consult their health care practitioner before beginning a weight lifting program because excessive strain on the bones could result.

Those with severe osteoporosis and who have suffered from fractures may find Tai Chi, a form of martial arts, to be a beneficial strength training exercise system.

If you are looking for a calcium supplement, try one that's highly absorbable, such as microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC), or one of the malates, fumarates, succinates, glutarates, or citrates. But don't overdo it. Taking more than the recommended amount of calcium may cause kidney stones. Consider taking additional nutritional supplements, such as vitamin D, C, magnesium, zinc and silica after consulting with your doctor.

Sheri Calewarts and Jeff Hersh of the Wabeno Fire Dept. came Wabeno Head Start to show all the kids how to be safe during a fire. The children were able to see what they looked like with their uniforms and equipment on just in case they ever had a fire. Celewarts and Hersh are real people in their uniforms and the kids should not be scared even though they could not see their face with the masks on. The kids really enjoyed learning everything they were told and loved look in in the fire truck! Photo’s by Yana Holdener

Announces Web Hosting Contract Awarded to Inflection Washington, DC. . . The National Archives today announced its selection of Inflection, parent company to family history website Archives.com, to design and host a free website for the April 2, 2012, at 9 AM (EST) launch of the 1940 U.S. Census. This is the first time that the National Archives has released a U.S. Census online. On April 2, 2012, users will be able to search, browse, and download the 1940 Census schedules from their own computers or from the public computers at National Archives locations nationwide through the new 1940 Census website, free of charge. A NOTE OF CAUTION TO RESEARCHERS: A name index does not exist for the 1940 Census. However, the National Archives has indexed the schedules by state, county, city, township or minor civil division, and enumeration district. Researchers can prepare for the launch by searching the 1940 Census maps and enumeration district descriptions in the National Archives’ Online Public Access catalog at http://www.archives.gov/research/search/, then browse the 1940 Census population schedules for that enumeration district. For the release of the 1940 Census online, the National Archives has digitized the entire census, creating more than 3.8 million digital images of census schedules, maps, and enumeration district descriptions. For more information about the 1940 Census visit the website: http://www.archives.gov/research/census/1940/ or email: 1940Census@nara.gov; subscribe to NARAtions Blog posts: http://blogs.archives.gov/online-public-access/?cat=163; follow the 1940 Census on Twitter using hashtag #1940Census; or like the National Archives on Facebook (USNationalArchives). While the original intent of the Census was to determine how many representatives each state was entitled to send to the U.S. Congress, it is also a key research tool for sociologists, demographers, historians, political scientists and genealogists. Questions on the 1940 Census include standard ones such as: name, age, gender, race, education, and place of birth. It also asks new questions, reflecting concerns of the Great Depression. The instructions ask the enumerator to enter an X after the name of the person furnishing the information about the family; to note whether the person worked for the CCC, WPA, or NYA the week of March 24-30, 1940; and to list where they lived on April 1, 1935. The 1940 Census also has a supplemental schedule for preselected lines on each page. This schedule asks the place of birth of the person's father and mother, and the person's usual occupation, not just what they were doing the week of March 2430, 1940. All women included in the supplemental form were asked if they had ever been married, how many times, and at what age did the first marriage take place. About the National Archives The National Archives and Records Administration is an independent Federal agency that preserves and shares with the public records that trace the story of our nation, government, and the American people.

The McCaslin Lions Club invited all of the local area children 10 and under to its annual children’s Christmas party which was held on December 3, 2011. The party was held in the Townsend Town Hall. Twenty tricycles and bicycles were given away appropriate for 4 age groups from 0 to 10 years old. Activities included games, face painting and a visit from Santa. Pictures were taken of the children with Santa. Lunch was also served.

Wintry weather means work on the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp Museum in Lakewood will be halted this week to resume in spring as weather permits. The Restoration Committee, a subgroup of the Oconto County Historical Society, had hoped to finish the project this fall, but work has been proceeding too slowly. One bright spot is that this gives the Restoration Committee more time to raise desperately needed funds to finish the project. “Unfortunately, the estimated cost of completing the renovation will be twice what we previously anticipated,” says Kathleen Marsh, Fundraising Chair. “I have done everything possible to raise the money, and I thought we had enough, but the bottom line is we are $20,000 short of what is needed.” “To clear up a misconception in the community, not a single dollar of taxpayer money has been used to restore the Museum. All of our funds have come from private sources: individuals, families, community organizations, businesses, and Museum fees/events.” “Jerry Dewane (Astro Log Homes) and his partner Bob Kleinhaus are doing an excellent job, with meticulous attention to detail. But the building is badly deteriorated; many of the logs the men work on crumble in their hands. Thus it is going to cost a lot more than what we thought, and we are counting on people to once again respond generously.” If you would like to help save the oldest logging camp still standing on its original site, please send a donation to Holt and Balcom Logging Camp Museum; 16965 Nicolet Road; Townsend, WI 54175. Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated. Donors who make a hundred dollar contribution are eligible for a $1000 appreciation award to be given at the Second Annual Lumberjack Links Golf Outing on June 10, 2012 at the McCauslin Country Club and Golf Course in Lakewood. Call 715-276-6515 for more details. “When the Museum is finished next year, the site will be an historical treasure that our entire community can point to with pride,” says Marsh. “I promise we are doing our best to make sure the logging camp will be there for at least another hundred years, but we need your help to get this done.”

Papa Smurf and Smurfette may be small (three apples tall, to be exact), but they and the rest of the Smurfs will take over the big screen with this animated-live action hybrid. Length: 103 minutes, Rating: PG (MPAA)
THE HELP: A 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black servants behind some of her community's most prominent families. Skeeter (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college, and she's eager to launch her career as a writer. In a moment of inspiration, Skeeter decides to focus her attention on the black female servants who work in her community. Her first subject is Aibileen (Viola Davis), the devoted housekeeper who has been employed by Skeeter's best friend's family for years. By speaking with Aibileen, Skeeter becomes an object of scorn to the wealthy locals, who view her actions as directly challenging to the established social order. Before long, even more servants are coming forward to tell their stories, and Skeeter discovers that friendship can blossom under the most unlikely of circumstances. Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in a touching tale of race relations based on author Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel of the same name.
