Families took to Main Street last week in a show of support for a young Stoughton girl battling a rare brain tumor. Small crowds wearing pink shirts and waving balloons turned out Wednesday, June 19, to bid farewell to 7-year-old Ella Hembrook, who was bound for Boston to undergo eight weeks of special treatment for a tumor discovered last year. The surprise send-off, in which Hembrook and her family traveled down Main Street amid cheering crowds, was organized by family friend Katie Bridgwater. “We’ve been planning it for weeks,” Bridgwater said. “We wanted to do it before they left (for Boston).” Kevin Hembrook, Ella’s father, said he took both his girls to the eye doctor last year after he switched health insurances. That optometrist noticed swelling in Ella’s optic nerve and referred them to an ophthalmologist, who in
It’s not exactly common knowledge in Stoughton, but the largest fur trading company in North America is located right here, operating quietly in a business park. That piece of trivia is, however, well-known to a radical animal rights group that tracks the mink and fox ranching industry and targets fur farms, hoping to sabotage their operations by releasing animals. The FBI classifies such raids as terrorism, specifically “Animal Enterprise Terrorism.” The Animal Liberation Front on May 31 released its latest “guide to destroying the fur industry.” In a submission to the Hub about that 58-page document, it promised “to spark a wave of attacks and animal liberations at fur farms nationwide.” The publication,
called “The Final Nail,” claims to list all the fur farms and major distributors in the U.S. and Canada. The list includes 71 mink farms in Wisconsin, including North American Fur Auctions in Stoughton, which is not a fur farm but instead collects ranch and wild fur from producers and trappers. Wisconsin is the biggest producer of mink in the country and one of the biggest wild fur producers. The Stoughton company grades the furs for color and quality, among other things, and ships them to Toronto, Canada, for sale at auction. NAFA makes a commission from both pelt producers and buyers. But the Animal Liberation Front wants to put NAFA – along with the entire industry – out of business. Nancy Daigneault, director of communication for NAFA in Toronto, said the company takes the ALF’s threat seriously. “It’s something that you have to be vigilant

turn referred the family to American Family Children’s Hospital, where an MRI found the tumor. Ella has already had two surgeries – the first in February 2012, the second six months later. Kevin Hembrook said three months ago another MRI showed the tumor was growing again. The family has headed to Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital for a special kind of proton beam radiation treatment there. “Nothing is 100 percent, but I am hopeful,” Kevin Hembrook said.
Friends, meanwhile, have been rallying to the family’s support. Three families organized garage sales earlier this month. Teachers and parents from the Stoughton Area School District responded with T-shirts, donations, ribbons and cards of support. St. Ann’s Church also helped. Verona-based Leisure Threads donated T-shirts for the sendoff. Donations have been flowing in from all over, and an account to help the family has been

A redwood bench honoring the memory of two Stoughton teenagers who lost their lives in a drowning accident last year has been installed at LaFollette Park off Williams Drive north of Stoughton. Emma Maurer, 16, and Sydnie Kwiatkowski, 15, died last June while swimming in Lake Kegonsa after the last day of their sophomore year at Stoughton High School. Since the tragedy, friends and family had talked about establishing
a memorial at the park, according to a news release announcing the installation of the bench earlier this month. Dave Bouzek, a lifelong friend of the Maurer family, worked with the Dane County Parks Department to create the memorial bench. With donated materials and workmanship, Bouzek constructed and installed the bench at LaFollette Park in recent weeks and family and friends gathered to remember. Several community businesses and

Crews are expected to finish road construction work on South Fourth Street by the end of the week.
Construction should ease in time for Junior Fair
It’s been a bit of a headache trying to get to Mandt Park while construction crews work on South Fourth Street near the Yahara River. Those woes should end just in time for the Stoughton Junior Fair, city streets superintended Karl Manthe told the Hub this week. “They should be pretty much all done (this week),” Manthe said. The city’s contract with the construction company stipulates that the work was to be done by the time the fair came to town, Manthe said. Crews planned to put down two layers of asphalt this week, he said. That will open up some parking on the west side of the street during the fair, however, the east side will likely still be marked as no parking. Manthe said the city likes to keep that side of the street free from cars during the annual event. - Mark Ignatowski

Letters to the editor
Hall of Fame inductees have done countless good deeds for Stoughton
In response to the letter to the editor of May 23, regarding the Hall of Fame (“Hall of Fame committee should heed suggestions”): The letter said the committee should elect a “mystery” man instead of the last three people – an undertaker, a wealthy widow and an ex-mayor. We all know these people as Paul N. Olson, Janet Bryant and Helen Johnson. These three people spent their lives to better the city and make Stoughton a city to be proud of, as have all the inductees. I’m sure this “mystery” man is well-qualified, but has not done as much as these three citizens. I’m proud to know all three. Donna L. Olson Stoughton

The feasibility hinged on the willingness of the district to make repairs, which could reach up to $100,000. The school board voted to continue a breakfast pilot program at Yahara Elementary School, despite some members holding fast to the idea that providing breakfast is a parental responsibility. Proposed solutions to reduce the amount of suspended sediment in the Mandt Park swimming hole came in over budget and were tabled by the city’s Community Affairs Committee. The plans called for a special liner for the pond and chlorine filtering equipment that were to cost between $60,000 and $75,000.

Stoughton had gone about a month without any measurable rainfall and crops were in need of water. The drought prompted a burning ban, but the city’s water supply remained fine. The rains came late in the month with about 1.7 inches falling. Still, the city did not lift the ban on fireworks as of the Hub ’s June 30 paper.

15 years ago County Executive Kathleen Falk unveiled a countywide growth plan proposal known as “Design Dane.” The initial response from county planning representatives was encouraging but guarded. Plans to annex 11 lots in the Sweetbrair addition failed at the council level after alders failed to secure a two-thirds majority on one of the items related to the annexation. Two weeks later, the council rescinded their action and plans had another chance to move forward.

25 years ago An objection by Hub publisher John Lebeck brought a special meeting of the Town of Pleasant Springs board to a halt in early June. Lebeck said the meeting was not posted properly. The board was to meet in closed session to discuss possible litigation for trailer and sewer violations. Town board chair Irving Quam had instructed the clerk not to notify the Hub of the meeting and said that three publicly posted notices were sufficient. However, clerk Jan Sorenson had not posted the notice because she believed the notice to be improper. The meeting was rescheduled for the following week. The SASD board voted as a committee of the whole to recommend spending $2,500 to study the use of temporary classrooms due to the rapidly

The first twinges of the gasoline “crisis” hit Stoughton in early June. Three local filling stations, including two bearing the Sunoco brand, were given monthly quotas of fuel. The Conrad Elvehjem Award for academic excellence went to four students this year: Robyn Roslak, Melinda Kay Lewis, Catherine Grace Godleski and Catherine Ann Reiser. All four received straight A’s. Four members of a Beloit family suffered serious burns when the aluminum mast of their sailboat contacted a highvoltage power line at La Follette County Park on Lake Kegonsa.

St. Ann School’s 7th Grade hosted their annual Tetrix Robotic Show last month. This year’s robots featured the “Back Buddy 5000” back scratcher, “Macklemore the Mopper 3.0” Swiffer robot and the “Ralph x2000” spy cam robot. While making the robots,
the students studied the engineering process and were required to complete a number of assignments, including keeping a daily engineering journal and preparing a commercial to market their robot. In addition, students created a Google Site website which highlighted the building process with
photos and videos. Students were required to upload their commercials to the site and design the layout of their website. Finally, students learned about QR codes and created one to link to their Google Site. Earlier in May, St. Ann’s received a generous grant from the Bryant Foundation to purchase five Lego

She’s been around for a few months, but Amanda Coppedge Bosky is starting to see some of the programs she’s planned come to life as youth services director at the Stoughton Public Library. As the summer reading program gets into full swing, programs like “Science Explorers” and “Art Explorers” are bringing families into the library for more than just reading. “They’re kind of filling up quickly already,” Bosky said. As of last Wednesday, readers had logged more than 300 hours in the summer reading program. Bosky hasn’t tallied participation numbers, but said turnout for the program has been steady. Bosky, formerly of West Palm Beach, Fla., served as a librarian in that area for about 13 years. She lived in the area for 20 years. “We had been looking to get out of the hot climate,” she said, adding that her husband had visited Madison for a conference and liked the area. She applied to Stoughton and was hired in late February. And while the summer reading program and some of Bosky’s other programs have drawn good attendance, she hopes some more new programs later in the year garner a lot of interest as well. Bosky said she hopes to set up a poetry recital this fall where children can memorize and share a poem and recite their own work. Families would be invited to dress up in costume if
they want and enjoy the show. Bosky also said the library’s teen advisory group has shown interest in starting a literary magazine. Bosky has been involved in libraries her entire life. She started working parttime in college in the children’s section and kept on working full time after she finished her bachelor’s degree in English at Florida Atlantic University. Bosky earned a master’s degree in library science from University of South Florida while working full-time. But even before that, she’d been a familiar face at her local library. “I was always a big reader – I loved storytime and summer library program when I was a child,” Bosky said. “The librarians knew me and pulled the new books or recommended things they’d knew I’d like.” Her love for the written word goes beyond the public library. Bosky is an author of young adult fiction and moderator on message boards for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, a professional organization that serves “people who write, illustrate or share a vital interest in children's literature,” according to the group’s website. Bosky said she’s starting to get active in the group locally and is hoping to network with other writers. When’s she’s not writing or working, Bosky and her husband enjoy long walks with their two dogs near their home in Madison. “We love to go to the Capitol and we love walking around Stoughton,” Bosky said. “We really like Stoughton.”

Thought for the week
Philosophers have almost always touted the connection between wisdom and happiness. Aristotle, by defining us as rational animals, comes close to guaranteeing that through the correct exercise of reason we might become happy. But, Aristotle was aware that our passions and appetites could lead us astray, since they are essentially irrational, and so for Aristotle, the good life requires the correct use of reason in practical matters, what he calls “phronesis” or “practical wisdom.” This practical wisdom is the result of a lifetime of experience. Aristotle says that no young person can be truly wise in the ways of life because he has not experienced enough of it. Likewise, the book of Proverbs is addressed to the moral education of the youth, repeatedly saying such things as “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction,” and “My son, do not forget my teaching.” (Proverbs 1:8 and 3:1) The connection between practical wisdom and well-being has been empirically verified by the psychologists Richard Nisbett, Igor Grossmann and others. They defined practical wisdom as consisting of 5 aspects: 1) willingness to resolve conflict; 2) willingness to search for compromise; 3) recognition of the limits of personal knowledge; 4) awareness that more than one perspective on a problem can exist; and 5) appreciation of the fact that things may get worse before they get better. It turns out that the wiser we are, when judged by these criteria, the happier we are. “For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.” Proverbs 2:10

Digging up dinosaurs
UW-Madison geology students explain how scientists unearth dinosaur fossils at a program at the Stoughton Fire Station training room last week. Guests were treated to a presentation about where dinosaurs fit on the geological time scale, as well as what might have led to their extinction. Audience members were able to handle some of the tools used to dig up fossils, as well as molds of some of the fossils that have been found by the UW-Madison geology department. At left and bottom right, students look over fossils. Bottom left, UW-Madison geology student Mel Reusche shows a rendering of what dinosaur ancestors and descendants might have looked like.

Stoughton Area Senior Center essay contest winners Audrey Killian, left, and Matthew Rude, right, present their essays at the senior center in last month.
Students honored for essays
The Stoughton Area Senior Center sponsored an essay contest for sixthgraders in the Stoughton School District during May, Older Americans Month. Participating students wrote a 300-word essay on “My Grandparents” or “My Best Older Friend.” They were judged on the strong attachment between old and young, originality, organization and cohesion, sixth-grade level work and grammar. The winning essays were by Audrey Killian and Matthew Rude from River Bluff Middle School. Their teacher is Rebecca Meyer. They read their essays at the Stoughton Area Senior Center on May 21 during a celebration luncheon. Here are their entries: Papa and I love to go on adventures together. I convinced him to ride a bike downtown up one of the biggest hills in Stoughton. On the way we explored a stream, and climbed down the bank to find raccoon and deer tracks. We talk about what it was like growing up on a dairy farm and he sent me a milk jug with his family dairy name on it he saved just for me. Papa has always been there for me and now it is my turn. Recently, he was diagnosed with cancer. He is tired and sore so he can't do as much as he used to but he tries. I visit and help him as much a possible. I am so glad he is in my life and I have amazing memories that will last a lifetime.
Papa is my Grandpa. He is kind of like a cactus, all spiky on the outside, but nice and soft on the inside. He was an engineer and still uses those skills to solve problems today. He sees the world in puzzles and gets giddy like a little kid when he finds the solution. When I was a baby Papa couldn’t get enough of me. Now that I’m older, we spend time learning from each other. I like to teach him “new math.” He said that I was doing multiplication wrong until, of course, I proved that it worked. He was fascinated by this new trick. He also likes to teach me about nature. We observe the creatures in his back yard. We became so fascinated by the crows; he gave me my own crow caller. I tell him facts about animals that I have picked up while he sits' there in amazement of how smart I have become.
Grandma Marsha may Reasonably be the best grandma in All the world. She is very Nice and has the best Days when she's cooking. Grandma Marsha loves cooking And gardening. Many times, I've gone to visit her At her house and never wanted to Return to mine. She is Such a good cook, and she taught Her daughter (My Mom) to be as good As her. Once, she Allowed me to gamble chips While playing Kings in the comers. Every day I spend there, I don’t want to leave. She has talents that tower Over all other grandmas, so she May be the best grandma Ever.
It’s all about the details!

Extra effort keeps Nelson in town
TIF, exemptions help stop 130 jobs from moving elsewhere

One of the most significant signs of progress the city has celebrated over the past year was holding on to a company that was already here. Nelson Global Products, a homegrown company that manufactures mufflers and silencers, exhaust tube assemblies and thermal management tubing for emissions systems, moved into its new headquarters at 1650 Williams Drive in Business Park North late last December and early January. The new facility houses the company’s product design engineers, as well as marketing, sales, accounting and administrative support staff. Mayor Donna Olson told the Hub it was important

Chamber welcomes new leadership
Unified Newspaper Group
The last year also brought new leadership to the Stoughton Chamber of Commerce. Erica Dial had been a familiar face at the chamber before she was tabbed to become its executive director in March. She would take over for D a v e P h i l - Dial lips, who left the post after almost four-and-a-half years to become the county’s new director of economic development. Dial herself had spent almost several years with the Stoughton chamber before leaving in mid-July 2012. She and her husband were planning to move out of the area so he could pursue a new business opportunity. When those plans did not pan out, the couple ended up remaining in the area. When the chamber started its search to find a replacement for Phillips, Dial previously said, she thought she “kind of fit the bill.” The chamber was drawn to her because of her previous chamber experience here, the relationships she
had already forged in the community, her marketing background and her high energy. The chamber was also looking to deepen its role in economic development in the community. “Economic development will also be a key focus,” Dial wrote in her first chamber newsletter as executive director. “The recent purchase of 36 acres of land adjacent to the Business Park North provides much needed land to bring new businesses to town. My plan is to partner with the City and other economic development groups to promote this available land. “We all know that the addition of new businesses (and not just in the Business Park North area) benefits everyone in the community.” Dial has both an undergraduate degree in marketing and an MBA from University of Minnesota-Carlson School of Management. She has also previously worked for Honeywell, the Fortune 100 company, in Minnesota before moving to Wisconsin. During her years with the Stoughton chamber, she helped market the city as a tourist destination, including developing a bus tour to bring outsiders to the city to see its Norwegian heritage.

Fab lab gives creativity a new dimension
Unified Newspaper Group
The Stoughton Area School District this year joined the likes of the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry with the creation of its own digital fabrication laboratory. There are only a handful of high schools in the world that have a digital fabrication lab, also known as a “fab lab.” Fab labs started more than a
decade ago as an outreach effort from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Bits and Atoms. Now there are 150 of them in 30 countries, including places like the Chicago museum. In Stoughton, in the span of about a year, the district received a $100,000 grant from Cummins Inc. to create the lab, raised another $100,000 in matching funds and turned the old print shop space at the high school into a place where students next school year will learn how to create pretty much anything. Students and parents got a glimpse of what the lab can offer during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the spring that featured demonstrations with several of the machines. At the lab, students will learn how to use an array of machines, including a three-dimensional printer, laser cutter, milling machine, vinyl cutter and “shopbot” that can cut, carve or drill different kinds of materials. The machines take a digital image created on or by a computer program and then make that object in a process that marries physical science and computer science. The project started

locally when Mike Connor, a now retired engineer from the local Cummins Inc. research and development campus, last year approached the school district about starting a digital fabrication laboratory here. Connor had read about and then seen a similar laboratory at the Mahtomedi, Minn., high school. The Cummins foundation later provided the grant to help fund the project for the next three years. Last semester, three SHS
teachers who will oversee the lab underwent training through the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Stoughton students can use the lab to make anything from chairs to action figures to circuit boards while learning skills in technology, engineering, problem-solving and team leadership, school officials have said. The lab will then be opened up to the community in the 2014-2015 school year.

Pool rebranding leads to acclaim, more attendance
Unified Newspaper Group
More than a year ago, Tom Lynch, the parks and recreation director for the City of Stoughton, had hoped there would be a “wow” factor when people visited the city’s rebranded Troll Beach, which formerly had been known as the Mandt Park Pool and before that the Mud Hole. Turns out he was right. The city opened the popular swimming spot in June 2012 with a new name, theme, inflatable play equipment, pool chairs and umbrella, concessions stand
and shade structure. It was the culmination of work that had started the previous year to rebrand the local landmark and make it stand out. The city had been looking for a new theme for the pool that would reflect Stoughton’s local Norwegian heritage. The branding of the pool was further developed with the help of Leadership Stoughton, a chamber of commerce program that verses participants in different aspects of the community. When complete, the city described the improvements as a “complete makeover.”
The changes helped the city collect the 2012 Wisconsin Parks & Recreation Association Outstanding Aquatic Facility Design Award. And it also helped boost attendance last year. As of July 17, 2012, a total of 8,834 had paid for admission to the beach, according to city documents. And that’s resulted in revenues above what the city budgeted for that year. Through mid-July 2012, the park had collected $23,630 in revenue, nearly $2,000 above what had been budgeted.

Make way for Norway
The Bryant Foundation hopes to build a Norwegian heritage center on the corner of Main and Page streets, where two buildings stood earlier this year. The heritage center would be used to complement existing programs and events, the foundation’s executive director June Bunting said in a letter to the planning department. Nearby organizations include the Stoughton Historical Society Museum and the Sons of Norway lodge, both of which feature Norwegian heritage events. One multifamily housing unit at 305 S. Page St. and a commercial space at 277 W. Main St. were torn down to make room for the site. The lots were combined, but no new plans for a building have been submitted to the city.
The Stoughton Redevelopment Authority made some moves to open more space for infill development in the city’s downtown area this year. With the help of a statewide grant program funded by the National Mortgage Settlement fund, the RDA removed a home at 217 S. Prairie St., adjacent to the former Marathon gas station. This site has been eyed for redevelopment for several years given its high traffic counts and proximity to downtown. The RDA has been advertising and marketing the site in hopes that a developer will find tenants and construct a new building on the site. The RDA is also in the midst of creating a revolving loan fund to make up to $250,000 in loans available to downtown property owners, residents and businesses. The money comes from TIF funds and will likely be used to help property owners make improvements if they’re unable to secure a regular loan through a typical lending institution. In order to create that loan fund, however, the RDA had to amend the area in which they could administer the funds. Through a series of public hearings, meetings with property owners and deliberations by the Common Council, the city approved the expansion of the redevelopment district (the area in which the RDA has authority to make decisions). The redevelopment area now roughly matches the area of Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) district 5. The revolving loan fund hasn’t been set up yet, as RDA members are still trying to decide how to administer the funds and

what sort of terms property owners might need to meet in order to receive the money. The RDA also made a significant move last fall when it took ownership of a building at 503 E. South St. that was previously used by Stoughton Trailers. The City of Stoughton Redevelopment Authority was given permission to purchase the 2.25-acre property in November. The agreement gives the city 10 years before it has to make a payment on the $150,000 property. The land, part of TIF District 5, will be paid for with tax money generated by the redevelopment of the site. The site first came onto the city’s radar as a place to build the Elven Sted residential housing complex. The success of that project bolstered talks between the city and Stoughton Trailers to move forward with a redevelopment plan for the 503 E. South St. site. The future use of the site is unknown but the city has been looking at grants for environmental cleanup and demolition.

City makes plans to expand business park
Unified Newspaper Group
With the city’s Business Park North almost at capacity, local officials took several steps to make more space available should more businesses wish to locate in Stoughton. After making some moves to keep Nelson Global in town, it became apparent that the city needed some more space. Earlier this month, the Common Council voted to approve an annexation agreement for about 36 acres of farmland to the north of the current business park. The city expects to close on the $1.4 million property this summer. The city plans to use funds available in tax increment financing District 3 to pay for the purchase. The land is owned by Moe Family Farms, LLC. City planning and development director Rodney Scheel said there were no specific plans for how the site would be used. There hasn’t been any interest in the site from specific businesses. In order to garner interest in the site, Scheel said the city plans to have the area approved as a Certified in Wisconsin site by the Wisconsin Economic
Development Corporation. The Certified in Wisconsin program lists “shovel-ready” areas that are prime for development. While the certified sites program focuses on areas that have more than 50 contiguous acres, the city received assurances that it could apply to the program, city finance director Laurie Sullivan told the Hub in an email. “There are no immediate plans to expand beyond what we are currently purchasing, but over time that is likely,” Sullivan wrote. “The city will still qualify for a certified site status due to the availability of additional acres adjacent to this site.” The approval process can be arduous – it took Verona nearly 11 months to get its Liberty Business Park approved, for example. The payoff is that the site is marketed worldwide to businesses and there are few obstacles for those businesses to jump through if a certified site is chosen. In the meantime, the city has already approved an agreement with current owner Lyle Moe to continue to farm the land this summer. They have until Dec. 15 to harvest the soybean crop on the land.

Nelson: City offered more than $300,000 in TIF deal
Continued from page 8 to keep Nelson Global in Stoughton because it’s a growing company with highpaying jobs. She noted that a large majority of Nelson Global’s 130-person workforce lives in or close to the city and is an important part of the community. Making that happen took major effort by the city – including getting fellow business park owners to agree on the moving of an arboretum – in addition to more than $300,000 in development grants. Chief executive officer Tom Gosnell thanked the city for its help in securing a site to build in the business park at a news conference and groundbreaking last May. “We are an international company, but Stoughton will always be our home,” Gosnell said. “I appreciate the efforts of the city to help our company and our employees stay here.” Construction of the $3.75 million, 25,000-square-foot headquarters began in May 2012 with an end-of-the-year deadline. Nelson Global executives began looking for a site for a new home in the summer of 2011 and wanted to stay in Stoughton. But they had a hard time finding a suitable site to build on, and for a while company officials considered relocating to another community. When Gosnell told city officials early in 2012 that the only possible site in Stoughton was in Business Park North on a lot that was home

to the city’s crabapple tree arboretum, Mayor Olson and Rodney Scheel, director of planning and development, went to great lengths to make the lot available. In April 2012 the Common Council approved an agreement with Nelson Global that included tax-increment financing (TIF) assistance in the form of two development incentive grants totaling $320,600. The company pays about $81,000 annually in property taxes. The first grant of $171,000 covered the purchase of the land at Outlot 2 in the business park. The second was for the $149,600 cost of public infrastructure improvements to get the lot ready for development.
In return, the company agreed to stay in Stoughton, where it was founded in 1939. The company began as Nelson Industries Inc. in a Buick garage on the corner of Main and North Page streets. It has distribution facilities and manufacturing plants in several states, as well as China, India and Australia. It acquired Universal Silencer in 1971, and the combined company was then purchased by Indiana-based Cummins Inc., in 1997, for $450 million. In 2007, Universal spun off into a separate company, and a derivative of the original Nelson brand was reborn in 2011 after a private equity firm purchased it from Cummins and began running the business in leased space on the Cummins campus.

Utica overcomes errors for win
Utica appeared to have a decided advantage Sunday when it hosted one-win Deerfield. The A’s found a way to make the game much closer than anticipated, however, committing eight errors. Utica (4-3) still managed to find its way into the win column despite a lackluster defensive effort as Christian Stokstad went the distance to secure the 12-8 victory. Deerfield (1-8) collected nine hits, but committed four errors of its own in the loss. Brad Ashmore (2-for-4), Brad Knickmeier (2-for3), Doug Vike (2-for-5) and Matt Ellingson (2-for5) paced the A’s at the plate. Utica hosts Albion this Sunday at 1 p.m. The A’s then travel to Evansville at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 4, before hosting McFarland at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 7.

Stoughton High School graduate and Marquette University recruit Henry Klongland (far right) finished tied for second at the WIAA Division 1 state golf tournament for the second straight year this season, and it helped him land on the first-team All-State squad again.
Vikings begin Legion season
Assistant sports editor
On par with the elite
Already committed to Marquette, Klongland didn’t have much to prove his senior year, but he still stayed consistent. He finished tied for second for the second straight season, and the 2012 year landed him on the first-team All-State for the second straight year, as well. “He is the complete package. He has the length and the short game, and his demeanor is topnotch,” Stoughton head coach Dave Taebel said following the state tournament. “He is so coachable. Even on his last hole of his high school career, he was still talking to me about what he should do.” Klongland was always in the mix for an individual state title during the tournament, and his leadership helped the Vikings make state as a team for the first time in several decades. But besides skill, he always had the mental approach, as well, Taebel continually said all year. And that can also be shown in his Academic All-State award, setting an example for fellow Academic All-State teammates
Klongland earns another first-team state nod in his final SHS season
Assistant sports editor
Stoughton graduate and Marquette University recruit Henry Klongland was the No. 1 golfer on Stoughton since he was a freshman, and in one of the toughest sectionals in Wisconsin, made state the past two years.
Anders Tiffany, Kip Nielsen and Max Fergus – which helped the Vikings also earn an honorable mention for Academic Team AllState. Klongland begins the next chapter in his golf career at Marquette. Taebel said that Klongland is a “special player” and that Marquette is getting a “gem.” The Marquette season begins in September, and it hosts the 54-hole Erin Hills Intercollegiate Oct. 6-8 at Erin Hills golf course, which will host the 2017 U.S. Open.
The 2013 Senior Legion season is under way for Stoughton this year, but it has had to deal with weather just like the high school season this spring. A few games have already been postponed this season. Stoughton continues the summer with a doubleheader at 10 a.m. and noon Saturday, June 29, at Fort Atkinson. The Vikings then host Middleton at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 2.

Home Talent League
Pennekamp’s blasts not enough
Assistant sports editor
All looked well for the Stoughton Home Talent team Sunday against Fort Atkinson. Steve Pennekamp blasted not one but two home runs, one in center field and the other in right-center field, and the Merchants held a 6-3 lead after six innings. But that is when the momentum suddenly shifted and the
Generals scored six unanswered runs to come back for a 9-6 win. “They came out and were hitting the ball,” manager Dale Seffens said. “Sundays, you have to play nine innings. You can’t just play five or six innings. You have to play all the way through. We had them on the ropes, but we just couldn’t finish.” Ben Riffle had a 1-2-3 inning in the top of the fifth
and followed it up with another scoreless frame in the sixth, but that is when the Generals (5-3) made their push. After recording an out, Riffle allowed two singles to put runners on the corners. That was the end of the day for Riffle as Jeremy Dunnihoo came in to relieve him. But Fort Atkinson catcher Bryan Wallace didn’t give him a warm greeting, crushing a high-towering bomb over the
tall fence in right-center to tie the game at six. The Generals came right back in the eighth to add three more runs. Bobby Bastien doubled to lead off the inning, and Michael Knutson dropped in a duck snort over first base to put runners on first and second. Nate Pfeifer hit a fielder’s choice chopper to third base an out later, but the throw came

to home plate. Eric Burrow, who pinch ran for Bastien, collided with Rory Menzer and was called safe as the ball was never controlled. Bastien was injured on the play and helped off the field, but the Generals were far from done in the inning. Lucas Smithyman capped the scoring with a 2-run blooper into right-center. The Merchants only had one baserunner the rest of the game. “They probably only had two to four solid hits all day, and the rest were seeing-eye. But that is part of the game,” Seffens said. The Merchants (5-3) held a 5-0 lead after three innings. After scoring a run on an error in the first, Stoughton added four more runs in the third. Jake Wenzel (2-for-4) started the scoring with an RBI single, and after an out, Pennekamp (2-for-2) smashed his first home run, a 3-run shot well over the fence in center. The Generals came back with three in the fourth. Knutson had an RBI fielder’s choice, and Nick Raether scored on an error by the shortstop to make it 5-2. Pfeifer capped the inning with an RBI sacrifice fly. Pennekamp came back in the bottom of the fifth and hit his second home run of the day. “Pennekamp has been having a good year,” Seffens said. “He has been swinging the bat well.” Dunnihoo picked up the loss. He went 2 2/3 innings and allowed four earned runs on six hits. He walked one. Riffle started and went 6 1/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on seven hits. He struck out two and walked one. Chris Koepke picked up the win. He went eight innings and allowed five earned runs on eight hits. He struck out six and walked five. Stoughton is now a game back of McFarland for second place in the West Division of the Southeast Section. The Generals are tied with Jefferson for first in the East.
Stoughton softball saw five girls selected to the Badger South AllConference team when the squad was released last month. Seniors Emily Auby and Casey Beckwith and freshman Holly Brickson led the way earning second-team selections. Auby was the only Viking to repeat as an all-conference selection, though she did so at a different position this season. First-year head coach Steve Bahrke said Auby jump right in moving from shortstop to catcher. Freshman infielder Brickson stepped in at shortstop and earned Stoughton’s third and final spot on the second team. She also hurled 28 2/3 innings for the Vikings, striking out 14 and walking nine. Beckwith also saw some time in the circle, though her main contribution came in right field. She tossed 22 1/3 innings, fanning 11 and walking one. Auby and Beckwith were quiet leaders for Stoughton. Sophomore pitcher Sarah Seaton and freshman Samantha Tepp were named honorable mentions. Seaton struck out 62 hitters in 70 innings, walking 10 on her way to a 6-5 record. Brickson, Seaton and Auby finished as the team’s leading hitters in average. Monroe placed five girls on the first team, while Fort Atkinson had three. Madison Edgewood and Milton rounded out the first team with two picks apiece. Stoughton finished fourth in the Badger South Conference, six games back of undefeated Monroe (12-0) with a record of 6-6. The Vikings (6-10 overall) saw their season come to a close in the first round of the WIAA tournament in a 12-2 loss against Burlington. With three of the team’s

all-conference selections returning next season, Bahrke said the future looks bright for the Vikings. “Everyone will be expected to perform,” Bahrke said. “We’ll all need to work hard toward the same goal.” Beside the three all-conference underclassmen, Stoughton will also count more on Liz Auby, who played catcher, second base and occasionally ran. No hitting stats were available from coach Bahrke.

Deadline for second tax payment approaches in Dane County
Dane County is reminding property owners that the deadline to pay the second and final installment of 2012 property taxes is Wednesday, July 31. Property owners who have postponed payment of their second installment should have received a reminder notice over the past week and should return the bottom section of the notice with their payment, the Dane County Treasurer Adam Gallagher said in a news release. There are three ways to make payments: 1. Make the check out to Dane County Treasurer, and mail to: PO Box 1299, Madison, WI 53701-1299 2. Pay in person at the City County Building at 210 Martin Luther King Blvd #114 Madison. Office Hours are 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office will be closed July 4-5. 3. Pay online (http:// countyofdane.com/treasurer/) with a credit card or e-check. There are additional charges if you pay electronically. Gallagher in a press release urged taxpayers to not wait until the last day, thereby allowing time to reconcile inadvertent payment situations such as transposed digits or insufficient funds. If they cannot pay the whole amount due, property owners should pay as much as they can to minimize the additional costs from interest and penalty. “The cost of missing the second tax installment is severe,” Gallagher said in that release. “Delinquency charges are retroactive to Feb. 1, 2013, and total 10.5 percent interest and penalty. Our office has almost no legal authority to waive those costs. So, it is imperative to pay property taxes on time to avoid a delinquency.” Property owners mailing payments are reminded to make their checks out properly. Specifically, checks should be made out to Dane County Treasurer for the exact amount due and include the parcel number on the memo line. Be sure to sign the check. Property owners should also use the preaddressed blue envelopes and include the bottom tear-off payment section from the reminder notice. Property owners can go to Access Dane (http:// accessdane.co.dane. wi.us/) to get information such as e-bills, e-receipts, and e-statements that indicate how much is owed on individual parcels. Property owners can email questions to email@example.com or can call the Dane County Treasurer’s Office at 2664151.

Ella: Family grateful for
support from community
Continued from page 1 established at Blackhawk Credit Union. Bridgwater said she has known the Hembrook family for three years through the Stoughton Center for Performing Arts, where Ella dances and Bridgwater’s daughter dances. When she heard of the Hembrook family’s plight, she took to Facebook to start a group to help them. “It just kind of blossomed from there,” she said. She wanted to organize a send-off and fundraiser, she said, to support the family because of how long they will be in Boston. Both before and after the sendoff, supporters sold T-shirts and bracelets to benefit the family and also took donations. All the support has been welcomed, Kevin Hembrook said. “We’ve had just awesome support from the community,” he said. “It does make things just a little easier.”

A redwood bench honoring Emma Maurer and Sydnie Kwiatkowski, two teens who drowned in Lake Kegonsa last year, serves as memorial to the teens at La Follete County Park. The bench was built by Dave Bouzek, a lifelong friend of the Maurer family.
Bench: Family friend builds
permanent memorial to teens
Continued from page 1 organizations contributed materials and labor to the project. “We have created a place where people can take time to reflect on those who are important in their lives,” Bouzek said. “Over the past year, I’ve come to realize how a heart-wrenching tragedy like this can change your life in an instant.” The girls were swimming near the beach on Thursday, June 8, 2012. They had been with three other friends who had left the area for a brief time, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office reported last year. Personal items belonging to the girls were found along the shore, which triggered a search effort by authorities, friends and families. The girls bodies were discovered the next day in the lake and their causes of death were ruled accidental drownings. The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office declined to elaborate on further details, citing medical privacy laws. In the days following the drownings, friends and families constructed makeshift memorials as the park expressing their grief at the loss of teens. Both girls were remembered by family and friends for the humor and laughter the girls brought to the world. Bouzek extended a heartfelt thanks to all of those in the Stoughton community who supported the two families during this difficult year in the wake of their great loss.
The new Girl Scout bridge for Stoughton will be used for the Girl Scout “bridging” ceremony.
Girl Scouts work with community to create new bridge
Community members pitched in to build a new ceremony bridge for Stoughton’s Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts worked with the Stoughton High School Fab Lab to create a new community bridge for troops in the community to use when they bridge to the next level. The idea came from Troop 2797, co-lead by Sandi Loftus and Kelli Krcma, after the last community bridging ceremony two years ago. The community had borrowed one of the bridges from the Badgerland Council in Madison, and found it to be in pretty rough shape. The troop thought it would be nice for the Stoughton community to have its own bridge to use. Stoughton High School teacher Brad Seehafer and student Justin Vinje etched the words on the bridge using the technology in the Fab Lab. Stoughton Lumber helped with lumber costs. Troop 2797 parents Britt and Brett Fankhauser built the bridge. Britt and Lily Wetzel, an Educational Assistant at River Bluff, did the painting. Troop 2797 was the first troop to use it when they bridged to Juniors on May 9.

Fur: Stoughton business listed as a possible target by radical animal liberation group
Continued from page 1 about,” Daigneault told the Hub in a telephone interview. “The Animal Liberation Front are extremists. Their whole purpose in life is to destroy the industry. They encourage criminal acts. They encourage people to break into farms. “This is not a law-abiding group, and as a company – and for fur farmers in general – everybody has to be very aware and vigilant about what they’re doing.” Stoughton Police Chief Greg Leck told the Hub that ALF and its mission is nothing new. The organization was most active in the 1990s, he said. After the first Final Nail was published in 1996, there were 16 farm breakins in the following six months, according to the ALF website, which goes on to say that prior to the publication, there had been only five such break-ins in U.S. history. the anonymous missive says, “activists armed with wire-cutters will visit a farm overnight, strip away the fencing and open the cages.” The ALF claims to have released as many as 14,000 mink in its most successful operation. Leck said NAFA takes its “own precautions” and he is not aware of exactly what those safety measures are. “We’ll respond to anything that occurs and we check that as we do all the other businesses in the community,” he said. “There’s nothing special that we do.” Leck said he was not aware of the company’s internal security measures. “They would have a right to defend their business and contact us if anything goes on,” he said. NAFA is a seasonal business employing 150 to 200 people, Daigneault said. The business operates out of a nondescript, 90,000 square-foot blue metal building on the north side of the city. Daigneault said NAFA is an offshoot of the original Hudson Bay Trading Company, founded in 1670. French explorers and trappers made a living by selling beaver and other pelts in an area that was later to become Wisconsin. NAFA sold 5.3 million mink pelts in 2011, netting some $300 million, according to an article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel . All the mink the company collects comes through the Stoughton facility. Daigneault said NAFA and fur ranching is a humane industry. “The fur farmers work with veterinarians and different animal welfare groups to ensure that they treat their animals with the most humane care possible,” she said. “The fur farmers themselves are very proud of the work that they do.” Leck described NAFA as “a very quiet business.” “You wouldn’t know what they do just driving by, and that’s their intent,” he said. “They’ve been supportive of community efforts just like all the other businesses in the community. They’re no different from the tobacco warehouses and Ortega or any of the other places out there.” Leck said groups like the Animal Liberation Front put out “The Final Nail” and similar documents hoping to advance a cause, adding that it doesn’t leave them legally responsible for anything that might happen. “They’re looking for publicity, hoping they can get somebody from the fringe to come in there and do something,” he said. “They get the publicity they want, and then you’ve got somebody that’s loosely agreeing with their theology and all the sudden they’re the people that are doing something on a different level.”

In the anonymous email to the Hub , the writer – apparently connected with ALF – stated that hundreds of copies of “The Final Nail” were mailed to animal rights groups nationwide. In addition to addresses for mink and fox farms, “the guide contains articles on how to raid farms, how
to avoid leaving evidence, and a hit-list of ‘most wanted’ targets,” including NAFA in Stoughton. “They’ve been on the list for years and years,” Leck said. The 58-page document “aims to provide activists with the hows and wheres of releasing animals from fur farms. In a typical raid,”
