Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford, Nicole Beharie, Christopher Meloni, T.R. Knight, Alan Tudyk, John C. McGinley Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. "42" tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and trailblazing Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. Rated PG-13 for thematic elements including language

Seeing a black bear can be one of the most memorable experiences of a wilderness vacation. Bears seem almost human at times, partly because of their high intelligence and partly because they can stand and sit like we do. Their diet is also somewhat like ours, so fruit and nut shortages are problems for them just as they were for primitive people. In years of crop failure, black bears are almost as quick as chipmunks to overcome their fear of people and seek out food. And they are extremely adept at getting it. They have color vision, acute hearing, and a keen sense of smell. They learn quickly and can remember feeding locations for years. They can climb trees, bend open car doors, and pry out windshields. They readily swim to island campsites. They adapt their lifestyles to the availability of food, often becoming nocturnal to avoid confrontations with us rather than sleeping at night like they usually do.

and rush to no nearer than 15 feet of the bear. This is especially effective when several people do it together. If alone, a person might create the illusion of numbers by throwing sticks through the underbrush. Don't feed the bears or try to pet them. Touching a wild bear can elicit a nip or cuff. A recent study by the National Park Service showed that bears sometimes are harder to chase after they have begun eating. Some bears in that study gave low intensity threats when people slowly approached closer than 15 feet, but all bears that were chased retreated. No visitors were attacked. People are often more timid at night, but bears retreat at night as well as by day. Capsaicin spray repellent usually persuades black bears to leave when it is sprayed into their eyes. Capsaicin, the active ingredient of cayenne peppers, has long been used by mailmen as a dog repellent. In more than 200 trials, no bear gave any sign of anger after being sprayed, sometimes repeatedly. Most immediately turned and ran, stopping eventually to rub their eyes. The repellent irritates the eyes for several minutes but causes no injury. Black bears can injure or kill people, but they rarely do.

The June meeting of UNAC (Up North Authors Circle) was held at the Lakewood Library on June 12. It was a busy evening as members who summer in the area came to reconnect and share their winter writing experiences with the regulars. Townsend author and group facilitator Kathleen Marie Marsh began the meeting by sharing a just off-the-press copy of her brand new release, The Truth About Townsend, Volume III: Bust to Boomers (1980-2010. Members were impressed with Marsh's seventh book, this one the result of four years of research. In keeping with their commitment to support other local authors, several eagerly purchased a copy to read before the next meeting.

Fran Melton reported she is working on a new book featuring her delightful Baxter the Frog character. Fran drew moans of approval when she told the group she spent most of the winter editing a science fiction book her daughter is authoring. Zach Mason read the 24th installment of his Duty and Honor series, a sequel to Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice. Each post is under 1000 words, and Zach says he is at about the halfway point. He encouraged members and the general public to visit his literary website to check it out:

Drum roll please.....  Except for a bit of minor painting, I am more than ecstatic
Monday, June 24th, the McCaslin Lioness initiated five new members into the club. We are sure that their experiences with Lioness will enrich their lives through serving others. to report that the restoration of the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp Museum is now complete. It has taken six years, and the entire project cost approaches $100,000, not any of it coming from taxpayer funds. All the money was raised from Holt family members, Friends of the Logging Camp, fundraisers, public programs, OCHS, corporate donors, and hundreds of small private donations.  I thank you for your amazing generosity. Whether you donated money or prizes for fundraisers, invested precious time/ effort, let us use your equipment, or just provided moral support, I could not have done this without you. It has been quite an experience for a naive and inexperienced retired school teacher, but that just makes the satisfaction of getting the job done all that much sweeter. And being sort of "adopted" by the Holt family is a perk Jon and I will cherish forever.  I will schedule a re-dedication ceremony at a time when Holt family members Marcia Wahoske and Bill and Sue Holt are in the area and able to attend. That may not be until Fall or perhaps even next year. I also envision a grand reopening, maybe a Lumberjack Breakfast for June of next year in place of the golf outing. By that time, the lawn should be well -established and able to withstand what I hope is a lot of foot-traffic. Stay tuned for details.  I am in desperate need of guides to staff our Saturday tours (11:00 - 3:00) at the camp. If you could donate even one day this summer, it would really help. It's easy, it's fun, and you will meet some extraordinary people. Maybe the spirits of the lumberjacks will visit you too!

Continued from page 1. Dozens of minor injuries, some requiring stitches, have occurred across North America when people petted or crowded black bears they were feeding or photographing. Under those circumstances, black bears may react to people as they do to bears with bad manners, by nipping or cuffing with little or no warning. Also, people who tease bears with food have been accidentally injured when the bear quickly tried to take it. Fortunately, black bears usually use at least as much restraint with people as they do with each other. Unlike domestic dogs, which often are territorial and aggressive toward strangers, black bears typically behave as the subordinate toward people when escape is possible. Black bears that want our food sometimes use threats or bluffs to get it, as has been reported by campers, picnickers, and backpackers. The most common behavior of this sort is blowing, which may be accompanied by clacking teeth, lunging, laid back ears, slapping the ground or trees, and/or a short rush. The same behavior is used to scare other bears from feeding areas. The sounds and actions are all done explosively, with effective results. However, it is rare for a black bear to attack a person during or after such a demonstration. All blowing bears observed by the author retreated when pursued. A less common sound is the resonant "voice" of a bear. This is used to express intense emotions (fear, pain, and pleasure), including strong threats. Black bears with ready escape routes seldom use this threat toward people. Grunts are used in nonthreatening communication to cubs, familiar bears, and sometimes people. Encounters with bears are remembered and retold for years to come. Most campers in black bear country never see a bear. Seeing one is proof that we still have extensive enough forests for this wide-ranging animal. Keeping a clean camp helps to insulate bears from the effects of our increasing use of the wilderness for recreation and helps prevent bears from being needlessly relocated or killed as nuisances.

The Wabeno Library will once again be holding “Tuesdays at Two,” hands-on art and other activities for children ages 5 and up starting Tuesday, July 2 and throughout the month of July. Local artist Connie Friesen and her husband Tim have once again graciously agreed to bring the big easels back to the library for kids to create art projects they can keep, as well as artwork for the community. The events are free and open to the public, but it is wise to call and indicate the number of children you expect to bring. Children do not have to participate every week, but the project will run through early August. The goal is to make art, and leave with a book that will count towards the children’s summer reading challenge at the library. Teens are welcome both as artist participants, and volunteers to work with the younger children. Some of the artwork may be on display at the Bistro Café and Art Gallery in Wabeno, as part of their on-going summer activities as well. The staff invites you to come enjoy a public story-telling event July 10 at 11 a.m. to be held at the American Legion Hall, 4494 North Branch Street. Storyteller Tracy Chipman of Menominee, WI. will have interactive stories with ties to Wisconsin and world. This event is free and open to the public. The library director recommends that you call for further information. Reservations are not

required. Come in and pick up entry forms for the “Leap Into Reading” Program too. The deadline for mailing your entry is July 11; the entry must be postmarked no later than July 11, for arrival no later than July 18th. Children and teens enter to win tickets to a Packers Game, and a savings certificate for college at the library too The contest and program are co-sponsored by Ed-Vest, The Green Bay Packers, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The program was created to create awareness of the EdVest Program, an affordable way for families to save for college education. One student will be chosen from each of the regional library system areas; Wabeno is a member of the Wisconsin Valley Library System. Entry is free with no purchases required. Students who join the summer reading challenge are also invited to our end-of-summer pizza party to be held at the library in August. For further information, contact the Wabeno Library, 4556 North Branch St., Wabeno: 715-473-4131.

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam
Headaches & Chiropractic
If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Nine out of ten Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. Research shows that spinal manipulation – the primary form of care provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. A report released in 2001 by researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for those headaches that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longerlasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication. Also, a 2002 study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that spinal manipulative therapy is an effective treatment for tension headaches and that those who ceased chiropractic treatment after four weeks experienced a sustained therapeutic benefit in contrast with those patients who received a commonly prescribed medication. What Can a Doctor of Chiropractic Do? •Perform spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system. •Provide nutritional advice, recommending a change in diet and perhaps the addition of B complex vitamins. •Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and upper back.
