TV show to highlight Stoughton
A few years ago, Stoughton drew the interest of a Norwegian television station as a director and producer for the foreign channel visited the city looking to get an idea about what life was like in the area. This summer, the community has drawn a local television station in for a closer look at the chamber, local businesses and the community. Madison’s CW57 (WBUW) spent two weeks in July filming for the program “Destination Stoughton.”
The program features seven 3-minute interviews with local businesses and an introduction by the Chamber of Commerce director Erica Dial. The program is set to premiere at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. McFarland State Bank was the

Mission trips open eyes, hearts and minds
As area churches send members on mission trips, participants expect to help those less fortunate. Through their work, however, many Stoughtonites say they’ve grown and changed on a personal level. Bible Baptist Church consists of eight local churches that will combine for 11 mission projects this summer. Luke Steuerwald, a
member of Bible Baptist, has been organizing a trip to Kenora, Canada, every summer since 2004. Five members traveled there in late July, including Nathan Lyle and Luke, Holly, Erin and Cierra Steuerwald, who spent two weeks working with a vacation bible school for teens and preteens. Their responsibilities included directing the camp and programs, counseling, lifeguarding, kitchen help and cabin counseling.

Stoughton Area School District
Board seeks public input before setting referendum
Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group
Eyeing a public referendum next year to offset an expected district shortfall of around $5 million dollars, Stoughton Area School District Board members will first gather public input on plans to put the matter on the ballot. School officials and board members talked Monday night about their “to-do list,” beginning with surveying opinions
from district residents and deciding whether to hold the referendum next February or April. The most recent referendum, passed in 2010, is wrapping up this month after bringing more than $7 million dollars to the district that helped replace the roof at River Bluff Middle School, install a new gym floor at Fox Prairie Elementary School, upgrade heating, air conditioning and ventilation units, re-pave parking lots

Six-year-old Brayden Welhoefer lifts up his T-shirt to show a scar that stretches from one side of his upper belly to the other. It’s a reminder of where he had not one, but four surgeries, including two liver transplants, before he was 2 years old. He doesn’t necessarily know why he needs his liver but senses it’s a vital part of his body. Brayden told the Courier Hub last Wednesday that, after telling his classmates about his condition, most of his peers now “care about my liver.” Likewise, his adoptive parents, Brenda and Ron Welhoefer, are quick to note how fortunate they are that so many people have cared about Brayden and his liver.

Board: More input needed on referendum
Continued from page 1 Kegonsa Elementary and Stoughton High School. Director of Business Services Erica Pickett said staff has been working on the latest referendum for the past month. Preliminary plans call for a referendum to be held next April. In that scenario, the school board would have until Jan. 18 to approve a resolution. If the board moved the referendum to February, they would have to approve the measure by Dec. 7, with public hearings scheduled for January. “Once a final decision is made, we can really move ahead with opportunities to educate the community, whether it be listening sessions, printed materials, those types of things,” she said. Pickett said there is an upcoming school board retreat scheduled to talk more about referendum possibilities. She said based on how the district handled the 2010 referendum, listening sessions in the community could be held in November, when school officials could provide information about past referenda and current plans. “We would want to get that on our calendar sooner than later,” she said. School officials could likely determine the amount needed for the referendum in November or December, Pickett said. “It could be a referendum combined with cost reduction or cuts,” she said.

School board treasurer Donna Tarpinian said board members need to see results from a community survey before firming up referendum plans. “It’s really going to drive whether we do the referendum or not, and what we need to do,” she said. “We have to be armed with information before we make any decisions. We’re talking about doing strategic things before we really know the data.” School board president Liz Menzer asked Pickett to provide members copies of past surveys to be discussed at their next meeting on Aug. 19 to get new members up to speed. She said getting feedback from the community sooner than later is critical to the process. “If we get a big enough sample, it is the indicator we’ve used previously as to whether or not our community is predisposed to support a referendum,” Menzer said. “If they are not, we need every single minute we can to be convincing them otherwise. If it’s favorable, if we knew everyone was feeling pretty positive, the timing becomes less critical. This is a big decision point for the board, and so the more information we have, I think the more responsible a decision we can make on behalf of the district.” Citing an economy that is “still not great in some areas,” she said a lot has happened in the area since the 2010 referendum passed. “This is going to be a
decision point for a lot of community stakeholders, and so we want to make sure we have ample time to really tell the good story,” Menzer said. District Administrator Dr. Tim Onsager suggested that board members discuss the timing of a potential referendum at their next meeting. Onsager said a February referendum is possible, but would “back everything up” in terms of the timeline in getting information out to the public and staff and the board approving the referendum. “There’s pros and cons for a February (referendum) versus April (but) we can certainly do that,” he said. Onsager, who will be talking to staff in November about the referendum, said he didn’t want a situation where district programs would essentially be “pitted against each other” in explaining the possible consequences of a failed referendum to residents. “You’ve heard other districts say, ‘If it doesn’t pass, we’re going to eliminate ‘X,’ and this is gone,’” he said. “It’s a fine line, because our taxpayers want to know some specifics – what happens if the referendum doesn’t (pass)? What information do we provide them without going so specific?”

Letters to the editor
TIF money is corporate welfare
Corporate welfare – that is what a TIF district is. When a TIF district is created the taxpayers forego the property taxes in that district to pay back the loan for the infrastructure improvements. Therefore, money that should be going into the operating budget goes to pay down the TIF loan. The city provides services to the district while not seeing an increase in its revenues to provide those services over the life of the district. This is a subsidy for profit companies or corporate welfare. Since a TIF district is corporate welfare, the public has a right to know who they are subsidizing with their tax dollars. Do the taxpayers want to subsidize WalMart moving from its present site to Kettle West? Is it responsible to subsidize the second most profitable corporation in the world? Should the taxpayers subsidize other Stoughton business moving to Kettle West? Will those moves increase the commercial vacancies in the rest of Stoughton therefore having a negative impact on the community? If taxpayer dollars are being used to promote mostly retail, has there been a study done to look at a) can the community support more retail? b) how much retail square footage do we have in Stoughton per person? c) how many vacant big boxes are there in the United States and what happens if at the end of the TIF district life we have a vacant big box store? Retail re-invents itself every 20 years, so these types of questions are very important to address if taxpayer money is being used. Since there are limited tax dollars available, should we not promote family supporting jobs with our money? Do we have an Economic Development Plan that promotes family supporting jobs? The community needs answers to these questions and more before using our tax dollars for corporate welfare. Denise Duranczyk Stoughton

ith the sunshine, warmer temperatures and kids out of school, there are more outdoor activities … and more opportunities for outdoor accidents. In fact, more people visit an emergency room in summer more than any other time of the year. In Dane County alone, tens of thousands of people visit an emergency room or urgent care facility during a typical summer. More than 23 million kids under 15 are taken to an emergency room in the United States. Deanne EcclesThe Centers for Rotar Disease Control and Prevention estimates roughly 1.7 million of these visits are due to traumatic brain injuries that can happen by doing something as simple as falling off of a bike. Many of those visits are due to head injuries. In fact, the CDC recently reported a 60 percent increase in the number of emergency room visits nationwide caused by mild traumatic injuries. When it comes to head injuries, you always want to err on the side of being safe rather than sorry. The prudent thing to do is be seen by a physician. The physician can then figure out how bad the injury was and if you need further testing or treatment. One thing doctors are likely to look for is whether a concussion occurred – a head injury where the brain function was impacted. While commonly thought to only affect athletes, a surprising number of concussions happen while doing everyday activities. Car accidents, falls, and then sports or outdoor activities are the main causes of concussions that we see. Having a single concussion may or may not be a big deal in the long term – the research on this is inconclusive. But what we do know is that if you have a second head injury without resolution of the symptoms of the first injury, there can be serious long-term consequences. A severe injury called “second impact syndrome” occurs when there’s another blow to the head before the first concussion
Signs of Concussion
Every year, between 1.8 million and 3.8 million concussions go undiagnosed in America. Usually these come and go with little permanent damage, but if a child or adult’s head is reinjured before the original injury heals, coordination, memory and even speech can be affected. If a person is hit in the head, look for signs of concussion: confusion, memory loss, headache, dizziness, ringing in the ears, slurred speech and vomiting. Call a doctor if any of these signs are present. Remember there doesn’t have to be an actual visible sign of contact on a person’s head for them to have a concussion. Keep in mind that while often connected with sports or outdoor activities, those aren’t the only times that a concussion can occur. Even simple falls in the house that involve bumping your head could lead to a concussion. symptoms have gone away. Those who suffer this condition may initially appear a bit dazed or confused. But, within minutes, they may drop to the ground unconscious and even die due to uncontrolled swelling of the brain. That’s why with anyone who has a concussion we ask them to rest the brain and take it easy – limit school, screen time including video games and television, and physical activity until the symptoms have resolved. The younger the person, the longer it takes the brain to heal after a concussion. Concussions sometimes can be hard to diagnose because there’s no actual test that can be done to confirm a brain injury took place. But, to help in the diagnosis, doctors evaluate a patient’s physical and mental abilities and ask questions about the accident that caused the injury. Many athletes can take a neuropsych test such as the computerized ImPACT test. This test establishes an athlete’s cognitive baseline. Then if that athlete hits their head, they would retake the test to see if their cognitive abilities are now different. If they are, it’s possible a concussion occurred. Not only does this help determine if a concussion took place, it also helps us to know when that individual can return to their activities. Until they reach their baseline again and are fully asymptomatic, we would advise them to stay out of any impact sport activity. This type of testing also can reduce the amount of imaging a patient has to undergo, lowering their exposure to radiation and lessening overall treatment costs. Keep in mind, though, that kids aren’t the only ones affected by concussion. Car and bicycle accidents are common causes. But, so are everyday accidents like tripping and falling and bumping your head. If there’s the potential to hit your head, wear a helmet. Whether on a bike, skateboard or scooter, if you’re on pavement you need a helmet to protect your head. Be aware, though, that the purpose of the helmet is to prevent fractures. They don’t prevent concussions but do lessen the risk of severe brain injury. Parents should lead by example and also make helmets a part of their own routine. They should encourage helmet use right from the start so that it becomes habit. If your child does fall and hit their head, you should visit an ER or urgent care facility any time you feel something isn’t quite right. But, you definitely should go under certain circumstances like headache, confusion, or a change in mental state. Sometimes you’ll know it’s a concussion because you hit hard enough to black out. But, that isn’t always the case. Either way, it’s important to be evaluated by a medical professional. And if it is a concussion, allow enough time for the brain to fully heal. Dr. Deanne Eccles-Rotar is a sports medicine physician with Stoughton Hospital.

Christmas in August musical performance planned in Cooksville
The Cooksville Community Center will host a special program for children and adults, titled “The One Room Classroom Christmas Program in August.” The show takes place at 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10. The program is free and open to all age groups, with no advance registration. A group of children have met at the schoolhouse two times a week for the past six weeks to practice puppetry, which will be a main feature of the performance. Their teacher Jeanne JulsethHeinrich, who attended this one room schoolhouse as a child, has shared her fond memories of school with the students. In addition to practicing puppetry, the children have played games from 50 years ago (jump rope and magic tricks), memorized children's poetry of today, written on chalkboards and had the responsibility of keeping the one-room classroom neat and tidy after class. In addition to the students’ performances, several other members of the Cooksville community will be present to entertain: • Dave and Lisa Imhoff will be the fisherman and his wife • Chris Beebe will be the wind, • Emily Beebe will be snow • 10-year-old Kate Elliott as Piccola in the French Christmas folk tale titled “Piccola” from Normandy Steve Ehle will present a one-man performance of “Mark Twain comes to Cooksville.” Mary Kohlman, Patti Prechel, Martha Degner and Diane Mackie will perform music for flute, violin and two violas.

Pedro Reyes is a Mexican artist who turns guns into musical instruments, making everything from guitars to flutes out of confiscated weapons. Since it is virtually impossible to legally purchase a firearm in Mexico, almost all of Mexico’s illegal weapons have come from “straw buyers” in the United States which are then smuggled into Mexico. Reyes puts the gun violence in Mexico into context by comparing it with the United States, noting that while the mass shootings which happen roughly once a month in the United States are a tragedy, they are a daily occurrence in Mexico. Indeed, at the height of the “drug wars” which continue to afflict Mexico, Ciudad Juarez (a city of roughly 1.3 million people) was averaging about 10 gun deaths per day. Reyes came to prominence for a project in 2008 in which he melted down over 1500 guns and made shovels from them, which were then used to plant trees. Perhaps the upshot of his work, and his art, is that we should be investing more in instruments of agriculture and music and less in instruments of death. – Christopher Simon via Metro News Service “They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation,nor will they train for war anymore.” Isaiah 2:4

Stoughton scouts venture to West Virginia
Scouts join group of 50K
Stoughton Scouts and two adult leaders attended the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree on July 15-24 at the new Bechtel Summit Scout Reservation in Southeastern West Virginia adjacent to the New River National River. They joined 50,000 other scouts from around the nation on 10,460-acre base in many activities, including whitewater rafting, technical climbing, shooting sports, mountain biking, zipline and canopy course, kayaking and patch trading. One scout, Dylan Brandt, met a scout from Puerto Rico and traded patch sets and troop T-shirts with him. Scout leader Curtis Brandt reported from the trip that temperatures have been in the 90 to 100 range and it has rained every day, “But the scouts are having a great time,” he said in an email to the Hub. Mike Rowe, star of “Dirty Jobs” addressed the scouts at the arena show and told them to work smart and hard and an emissary from Pope Francis led mass for 12,000 scouts. The arena show included the largest fireworks display on the East coast. Scouting also emphasizes service and giving back to the community and on Monday, July 22nd, the Stoughton Scouts and leaders spent the Message of Peace Day of Service at the Fort McCoy archeological site cleaning priceless artifacts. On this day, 37,000 scouts did community service projects around the state of West Virginia. –Victoria Vlisides

Brayden: Neighbor said taking care of Brayden brought community together
Continued from page 1 normal openings. It would be a long journey before he was healthy. “It all happened so fast,” Brenda recalled. “Now that we’re talking about it I still get that pit in my stomach.” Transplants are more difficult to perform on children, especially those under 1 year old, according to an American Society Transplant brochure found at a-s-t.org. So doctors at UW Health considered other options first. Within days of the diagnosis, Brayden had an unsuccessful Kasai procedure, a surgery that offered no permanent cure but can allow patients to grow and remain in good health for several years. He was placed on the organ donation waiting list. The family watched Brayden grow sicker in the eight months they waited for a liver transplant. Brayden, who weighed just 5-1/3 pounds at birth, needed around-theclock care and was hooked up to a feeding tube from about 4 months old until a short time after the transplant. When he was most sick – a two-to-three month period just before his transplant – he was taking up to 12 medications at a time. Shortly after his first birthday, on April 28, 2008, a liver match was found from a 4-year-old named Dylan who had passed away. The family still honors Dylan’s life. But after the transplant, one of Brayden’s major artery developed a blockage. He needed another transplant. Ten days later, another match was found from a 2-year-old named Jessica who was also deceased. This transplant would take, but Brayden needed reconstructive surgery for the

artery blockage. Brenda and Ron later found out Dr. Luis Fernandez spliced an artery together with one from a donor. “He kind of MacGyvered it together,” Ron said. “He’s our hero.” Brayden was out of the hospital by Memorial Day weekend 2008.
It takes a village
Penny Pollard and her son Matthew Pollard stroll in the Capital City 5K.
It wasn’t easy staying positive while Brayden was sick, Brenda admits. Even with Ron being the rock of the family, they were grateful for members of their church, St. Ann’s Catholic Parish, family and neighbors who helped care for Brayden, allowing Brenda, who works in finance, and Ron, who teaches science at Madison East High School, to continue to work. “They made it possible for us to keep our jobs,” said Brenda, adding that three local nurses, including one from the neighborhood and two from St. Ann’s, were among those who helped. Neighbors Frank and Kathy Parkel, who have lived on Nancy Lane for 40 years, were among other neighbors who would stay with
Brayden while Ron and Brenda were at work. “He was very good through the whole situation,” Frank recalled. “The most miraculous part of it is the neighborhood seemed to really rally around him,” Kathy said. “We love the little guy.” Brayden’s mental growth was not stunted by the trauma, and that has been a blessing. He had speech therapist to help him along, but was able to attend daycare by the time he was 17 months old. Besides being small for his age, Brayden has few lasting side effects. He also has to get monthly blood draws and take anti-rejection medication for life. While Brayden continues to focus on normal first-grader stuff like the whereabouts of the iPad and playing with model trains, his parents said their son’s ordeal has taught them not to stress about the minor problems in life. “It’s changed our lives completely,” Brenda said. “We are better people because of him. It’s a good day because Brayden’s not in the hospital.”

Utica’s Max Gartzke cracks his bat on an inside pitch by Ben Riffle during the sixth inning of Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Stoughton at Utica Fest. Gartzke finished 2-for-4 at the plate with a pair of singles. The loss, however, dropped the host A’s out of the Southeast Section playoff hunt. Utica hasn’t reached the playoffs since 2010.
Menzer helps Merchants clinch
Stoughton drops Utica in season finale to jump past McFarland for final spot
Stoughton catcher Rory Menzer scored the go-ahead run, turned in the play of the year and picked up a save Saturday to help the Merchants remain in the Southeast Section playoff race. Twenty-four hours later Stoughton got a little help, returning to the playoffs when McFarland fell 5-3 at Albion. Knowing they had to win Saturday at Utica and get some help on Sunday, the Merchants took care of their business, avenging an early-season loss to the A’s with a 3-1 win on the road. Menzer cracked a lead-off single past Utica third baseman Matt Ellingson to start the sixth and later came around to score the go-ahead run on Sean Gerber’s RBI blooper at Utica Fest. Teammate Max Fuller drove in an insurance run one batter
later to score TJ DiPrizio. Still it was the hustle of Menzer, following a barehanded by Gerber, that highlighted the win. While Gerber gunned down Christian Stokstad to open the bottom of the sixth, Menzer helped the Merchants turn the most unconventional double play you’re likely to see. Following a Max Gartzke single, Stoughton looked primed to work out of the jam when Curtis Holverson hit a grounder to DiPrizio at short. Though the flip to second for the force on Gartzke was turned easy enough, second baseman Dave Hanson threw wide of first baseman Steve Pennekamp and Holverson digging for second. Trailing the play up the first baseline when he saw the potential for the double play, Menzer slid in front of the Utica dugout, barehanded the ball and nailed Holverson short of second. “That’s ‘just how we drew it up,” Menzer joked after the game. “We’re a pretty tight knit group. We all enjoy playing together and if one guy has a bad play, makes an error, there’s always someone there to pick
him up.” Utica lead-off hitter Andy Martin singled in the seventh and was hit by a pitch in the ninth when Gartzke led off things with a single, but the A’s continued to struggle to drive in runs. Riffle was replaced on the mound for the final two outs by Menzer, who got Ashmore to hit into a fielder’s choice at second and Brad Knickmeier to ground out to end the game. “I’ve just got to bring my best to Utica Fest,” Menzer said. “It’s fun to play for something that has some meaning to it.” Two years ago the Merchants were already in the playoffs and last season both teams had already been eliminated. “It was still fun to play against a lot of the guys you went to school with, but it was more fun to play with something on the line,” Menzer said. The game didn’t go as smoothly for everyone. Playing in his first Utica Fest game, shortstop DiPrizio managed to hold on to a leadoff fly out by Andy Martin in the third despite colliding with teammate Taylor Schmid in left field.
Stoughton appeared to be out of the inning when Knickmeier popped the ball up in right field. Though Hanson appeared to have a bead on the ball from second base, there was some miscommunication with right fielder Max Fuller, who called off Hanson only to dive for the ball at the last second, coming up short – an apparent result of miscommunication due to tractor pull a couple hundred feet away. Back-to-back singles by Kyle Bates and Doug Vike loaded the bases before Stoughton’s Ben Riffle struck out Ellingson to end the threat. DiPrizio helped the Merchants break the scoreless drought, singling to right with one out in the top of the fourth. He later came around to score on a Steve Pennekamp single. Stoughton threatened again in the fifth, but the game remained 1-0 until Doug Vike singled past Pennekamp to score Brad Ashmore in the bottom of the fifth. “If we would have won out we’d have been fine, but oh well,” Utica manager Dale Vike said. “That’s the way it goes.”

Merchants: Southeast Section playoffs begin 1 p.m. Sunday
Continued from page 9 It all left Vike with the feeling that the A’s gave the game away, rather than having it taken from them. “We didn’t get the hits when we needed them,” he said. “We’ve been so inconsistent with the defense and everything this year, I really thought we had turned the corner.” Ben Riffle went 8 1/3 before giving way to Menzer. Riffle allowed one earned run, on nine hits. He struck out five and walked two for the win. “I can’t say enough about Ben Riffle,” Seffens said. “He’s been a workhorse this year. He sucked it up today and got us some major innings.” Still with two losses against top-seeded Orfordville and McFarland, the Merchants’ playoff fate rested solely in the outcome of Sunday’s game between the McFarland and the Tigers in Albion. “I think Albion is a good team,” Menzer said after Utica Fest. “There definitively competitive. Nobody is a bad team in our league. We’ve just got to hope for the best now. “Those two losses to McFarland might come back to hurt us, but hopefully not.” Simply needing a win, McFarland was unable to propel itself into the playoffs, falling 5-3 against the host Tigers. Stoughton (9-6) will travel to East Division top-seed Jefferson (11-3) in the Muskies stead for a 1 p.m. playoff game Sunday, while West Division leading Orfordville (13-1) hosts Fort Atkinson (9-5).
Neil Carney threw a complete-game shut out as the Merchants earned the topseed in the Central Section of the Thursday Night League with a 14-0 shellacking of Rio in five innings last week. Carney struck out five and walked two. Stoughton sent 15 batters to the plate in the first inning, scoring nine runs. Menzer (2), DiPrizio (2), Fuller, Nelson, Campbell and Schmid all drove in runs. Hosts Stoughton kicks off the playoffs against Ashton at 6 p.m. this Thursday. Utica capped its Thursday Night League season with a 12-0 loss against Verona.

Mission: Church trips help people in need, build character in local youth
Continued from page 1 Steuerwald said his years of service have opened his eyes and heart. “My life has been enriched because of my nearly 10 years of serving the children of the Kenora community,” Steuerwald said. “A mission trip not only allows one to see and experience people and their culture from another area of the world but also will broaden the one’s worldview. It allows the person taking the trip to serve others, to adapt to new situations, and to develop a heart for people and their physical and spiritual needs.”
United Methodist Church
Three adults from United Methodist Church are going to the Dominican Republic in September. While the planning meeting for the mission has yet to take place, Roni Christian–one of the participants–said they hope to “gather ideas of how to implement new Hispanic ministry in our congregations, engage and understand another culture’s way of doing ministry and share ideas with each other.”
Lake View Church
Lake View Church had members participate in three different mission trips this summer. A group of nine middleschoolers were accompanied by three leaders during a week in Chicago in late July. In the community of Rogers Park, the group offered neighborhood ministry and gave out free water, hot dogs and other items. They also visited with people in a nursing home and took meals to homeless individuals. A high school team of five boys and two adult leaders went to New Orleans for a week in early July. There, they worked with the organization Urban Impact, a ministry in the central city that reaches out to local kids in low-income neighborhoods. They ran a day camp for kids in the afternoon, and spent evenings at the neighborhood parks playing with the kids. The third trip was to Camp Barnabas in Purdy, Mo., which is designed for those with mental, physical or developmental disabilities. The trip, organized by John and Mary Bowman, has been an annual one for the past five years. Mary, a nurse, serves with other nurses tending to campers’ needs, while John, who said he prefers to be behind the scenes, has worked a gamut of handyman jobs from maintenance to plumbing to Internet networking. Along with them, they take their son Steven, who is a camper there, and a group usually including kids in their mid- to late teens or early 20s. This year, nine other people participated by cleaning up the facilities and working one-on-one with campers. John said the trip had a profound affect on the youth that accompanied him. “The world doesn’t really revolve around us, it revolves around other people,” he said. “It teaches kids that there’s a whole world out there. It changes their lives.”

Participants are: (front row) Peter Dirks, Matt Doll, Meredith Melland, Shae Pigarelli, Alyssa Markuson, Raven Poirier, Sophie Pitney, Erik Hansen, Sam Dirks, Meghann Fougerousse; (middle row) Matt Tarpinian, Chris Doll, Denise Pigarelli, Al Collins, Greg Vodak, Noah Doll, Kevin Proper, Steve Hansen; (back row) Monty Brekken, Richard Shilts, Mark Doll, Jace Carlson, Pastor George Carlson andChristian Doll.
age from 10 to 72, travel to Minot, N.D., in their mission work. The site of a devastating flood in 2011, Minot saw damage to 4,100 homes and the displacement of thousands of people. For a week in mid July, the group from Covenant worked to repair the lingering damage by gutting and rebuilding homes, putting up drywall and even tearing down a garage. Minister of faith and development Mark Doll said the experience gives participants a sense of the need to be servants. “At the end of the week, they feel like they made a difference,” Doll said.
Good Shepherd by the Lake
With an in-state focus, First Lutheran Church is sending a group of 30 people to Green Bay this month to work with the Salvation Army. While most of the group consists of middle school and high school students, there is a range from third grade to adult. For two days, the group will work with the Salvation Army, a nursing home and Paul’s Pantry (a local food pantry). First Lutheran’s pastor, Sara Ehrets, finds the interactions with others are crucial to mission trips. “It’s about helping and learning and growing and seeing other people,” said Ehrets. “(And,) realizing there’s all different kinds of people in the world and we’re connected.”
A couple of college-age students from Good Shepherd by the Lake Lutheran Church ventured to a remote part of Saskatchewan to help at a vacation bible school. For a week in late July, Emma Kitsemble and Courtney Spear participated in the trip, organized by Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots. According to their website, LAMP impacts 5,000 people every year.

In July, six girls, one female chaperone and the pastor from West Koshkonong Church participated in the “Week of Hope” in Minneapolis. All of them were split up into different crews – there were 14 total – where they went to one of 14 project sites. Work at the sites included Covenant Lutheran painting a mobile home, Covenant Lutheran Church working at a disabled youth had 25 members, ranging in camp and leading a summer

school or day care. Britni Cohen-Wichner, a member of the West Koshkonong group, talked often of the bonds she formed with others working there. “I gained a lot of friendships, even with people from the crew,” she said. “Some live 1,000 miles away from me and I still talk to them.” She also said the experience made her more grateful: “It made me realize how lucky I am.”
St. Ann’s Parish
St. Ann’s Parish participated in two missions this summer. Through the Diocese of Madison, a group of 23 middle school youth
and five adult leaders participated in “Love Begins Here.” The program included jobs such as weeding, raking and visiting nursing homes. St. Ann’s participated in the three of the program’s weeks, sending 12 youth to Montello, 10 to Watertown and one to Monroe. The other mission is called “Journey of the Heart.” For one week in late July, 28 teens and 6 adults went to Indianapolis to serve. Work included painting, minor demolition and construction, working at soup kitchens and food pantries and playing with the children of the community.

Project Home helps Stoughton homeowner
Project Home and about 15 people from J.P. Cullen & Sons, Madison Horizons Rotary and other community volunteers helped brighten the life and home of a deserving homeowner in Stoughton during Project Home’s Paint-a-thon. Volunteers worked on the Lowell Street home of 94-year-old Doris Loftus on Saturday, July 27, as part of the 25th anniversary of Project Home in Dane County. Since 1989, thousands of volunteers have worked together to paint more than 500 houses through the Dane County Paint-athon. Each year, volunteers donate their time and talents to paint the homes of low-income elderly and/ or disabled residents in Dane County. All paint was donated by Hallman Lindsay Quality Paints. According to a press release from Project Home, Loftus turned 94 years old on July 9, and she said having volunteers paint her home through Paint-a-thon is one of the best belated birthday presents she’s ever received. She has lived in her Stoughton home for over 33 years and prior to that lived and worked on a farm just outside of Stoughton. Loftus has two children and three grandchildren.

Stoughton Dam part of countywide photography contest
A collaboration of artists, poets and water resource experts invite Dane County photographers to participate in “Beyond the Water’s Edge,” a creative investigation of Dane County lakes, rivers and wetlands, including one in Stoughton. In celebration of 25 years of service from the Dane County Lakes and Watershed Commission, the contest is open until Aug. 22. Photographers are asked to consider a list of 25 special water-related places in Dane County in their contest entries. A map and brief description of those places is linked from the contest web site at dclwc25.org. One of those 25 is the Yahara River downstream of Stoughton Dam. As described on the website, from just below the Stoughton Dam, it’s nine miles (about a six hour paddle) to the confluence with the Rock River in Rock County. If you paddle downstream from here at Mandt Park you can take out at the Dunkirk Dam or Highway N, which are also good viewing places if you're exploring from the road in Dane County. This is a juried photography contest with selected poetry to accompany the contest winners in five categories: beauty and (re-) vision, recreation and tourism, caring for our waters, troubled waters, and water and daily life. Contest details are available at the contest website at dclwc25. org. An exhibition of winning photographs and accompanying poetry is planned for November and December 2013 at the Goodman South Madison Branch of the Madison Public Library. The Lakes and Watershed Commission will rotate the exhibition around the county in 2014.

Pie: Black, red raspberries
make delicious lattice pie
Continued from page 1 lattice pie (featuring black and red raspberries) was again the center of attention. Doyle-Horney, who teaches elementary school music in Madison, said when the competition judges asked for a Doyle-Horney family heritage recipe, he knew exactly what to make. “(It) comes from when I was quite young and would pick raspberries with my dad and granddad,” he said. “What we didn’t eat right off the vine, we brought home to grandmother Lucy, who would make them into a pie.” It’s no surprise that an award-winning recipe would include some outof-the ordinary ingredients, and Doyle-Horney goes all-out for his creations. For instance, he has used duck eggs instead of chicken (richer yolk), vodka instead of water making the crust (doesn’t create gluten when mixed with flour) and handpicked berries from Lake Kegonsa State Park instead of store-bought fruit. To make the tasty crust, he uses Willow Creek leaf lard, which comes from heritage Berkshire pigs raised in Sauk Prairie. While he said winning either of the prizes was an honor, this year’s Kenmore contest was unique because it included presentation and storytelling, and Doyle-Horney was happy to play his part, rehearsing his “performance” several times at home and re-writing his script for dramatic effect. “I had a red-checked tablecloth, pie basket, rolling pin, tin bucket of berries and my granddad’s cane, hat and glasses as props to aid in the storytelling,” he said. “It was an element of theater that went into the presentation. The contest was really hyped – lots of cameras and audience – and the bakers were participants. Usually you just watch and wring your hands nervously.” Surprisingly, Doyle-Horney’s submitted pies at the Stoughton Fair and Wisconsin State Fairs didn’t go as well with the judges this year, so he was happy to win the Kenmore prize, which included a $5,000 kitchen makeover and an all-expenses trip to New York for he and his wife to attend the Food Network’s Wine and Food Festival in October. “We expect to sample some tasty cuisine and hope to meet some of our favorite chefs and food industry personalities,” he said. “This is way cool for us both.”

Volunteers are critical in making this event a success. Volunteers help take the items and organize them into the categories. Wisconsin Public Television is seeking volunteers to help out at our next membership drive, Aug 3-12. Volunteers are needed to answer phones and input pledge information into the computer. Or, you can also show off your culinary skills by serving snacks and refreshments to volunteers and staff. Shifts are approximately 4 hrs and include snacks and a free meal.

Destination: Madison’s CW57 will highlight Stoughton businesses, community
Continued from page 1 driving force behind bringing the program to Stoughton, president Steve Swanson told the Hub this week. The bank had previously worked with CW57 on a similar program in McFarland. Swanson said the program is a great way to highlight what the community has to offer. “There’s no reason that Stoughton shouldn’t be considered one of the top destinations for a business or family to relocate because of all it has to offer,” Swanson said. “We felt like Stoughton is a bit of a hidden gem.” The half-hour program will highlight seven local businesses – McFarland State Bank, Nordic Nook, Deak’s Pub and Grill, Stoughton Tumblers, Stoughton Utilities, Lotus Salon and the Chamber’s Visitor Services department. Each business serves as sponsors of the program by paying $1,000 for their own three-minute segment. Swanson said they were asked to fill out questionnaires which Dial read and directed questions to highlight the business during an on-camera interview. Crews spent a few hours each day during a two-week period in late July filming the interviews and gathering extra footage for the program, Dial said. Being on camera wasn’t easy at first, Dial said, adding that she was surprised about how long it took to shoot the different segments. “It took two hours to get a minute and a half of video,” she said. Swanson said he was impressed with the production value when the bank was part of the program for McFarland. That positive experience, in part, lead bank leaders to try to get a show taped in Stoughton, he said. Another reason, Swanson said, was that the bank wants to be a leader in the Stoughton community. “We feel that it is our role as a community bank to promote Stoughton,” Swanson said. “So many of our employees call Stoughton home. We take pride in the community.” Swanson approached the chamber, the school district and the city, he said. The superintendent, mayor and chamber leadership all seemed to be on the same page about Stoughton needing to do a better job promoting itself. “Stoughton has a lot to offer,” Swanson said. “Why is it that Stoughton doesn’t seem to be on the radar when people are thinking of moving to Dane County? I think part of it is that people don’t understand what Stoughton has to offer.” Both Swanson and Dial said they hope the program will garner some interest in the city. The show will be aired at least 12 times during a four-week period starting Aug. 15. In addition to the air time on CW57, the businesses and chamber will get copies of their threeminute segments and the whole show to use to promote themselves. Dial said the chamber plans to put the video on their YouTube channel, Reveal Stoughton, and on their website, stoughtonwi. com.
