It was a picture-perfect day
Sunday for Oregon High
School’s Class of 2014 graduation. Several student speakers
encouraged students to overcome their failures on their way
to success as they leave school.

With the last weeks of
the school year ticking
away, the Oregon School
Board approved the 201314 Collective Bargaining
Agreement with the Oregon Education Association
(OEA) Monday night.
As part of the deal, most
educators will receive
a 2.07 percent wage
increase. The exceptions
are a handful of teachers in
technology education and
agriculture departments
who had already received a
separate supplemental pay
contract for the 2014-15
school year – for some as

high as $10,000 – as their
positions were deemed to
be high demand.
Also, instead of a previous proposal to increase
starting salaries of teachers to $38,000, the board
opted to take that $51,025
and divide it in a flat dollar amount among the educators who worked in the
district this past year who
were hired for the 201213 school year or earlier

Long-time Oregon School District crossing guard Nina
Noyce retires after last 20 spent keeping watch at the
intersection of Soden and Lincoln.

Fond Farewell for Noyce

Long-time Oregon School District
crossing guard Nina Noyce has seen
a lot in her 92 years – with the last
20 spent keeping a watch on students
crossing the intersection of Soden and
The long-time crossing guard said
goodbye Friday afternoon to what
has been a long-time labor of love in
keeping students safe as they walk to
and from school, reminiscing about
the good times – as well as some
close calls.
Patricia Fleming officially replaced
Noyce in mid-March. But Friday,
Noyce had a farewell of sorts with the
dozens of children and parents she’s
befriended as she’s shepherded them
across what can be a busy – even
dangerous – crossroads. A spry and
energetic nonagenarian, Noyce said
she would have kept at the job even
longer except for one recent incident
that convinced her to hang up her stop
“One Friday afternoon I went over

there to pick up that cone,” she said.
“There wasn’t a car around, when I
picked up the cone some woman came
from the school, I think, and knocked
it right out of my hand.
“I said enough is enough.”
Noyce got her start two decades ago
when a friend at the Oregon Police
Department with a young daughter
going to the nearby elementary school
“nominated” her for the job.
“She said, ‘We need a crossing
guard at the corner of Lincoln and
Soden, and I know just the person to
put there,’” Noyce chuckled.
While the corner has thankfully not
been the scene of any major accidents
since Noyce started her watch, there
have unfortunately been plenty of
close calls, she said.
“(Drivers) don’t pay any attention,”
Noyce said. “I should write a book;
they keep telling me that. One woman – she didn’t stop for that intersection, she didn’t’ stop for this one, she
just went right on down to school,
and picked up (her) kid. When she
came back I stopped her, and I said,
‘Are you aware that this is a four-way

stop?’ And she looked at me and
said, ‘I don’t live around here.’ One
woman almost hit me over there, and
I yelled at her and she rolled down
her window and said, ‘I saw you.’
(laughs) I said, ‘Well, why didn’t you
The memories are mostly good,
though – particularly one incident
during the middle of the recent, brutal
“One morning it was so cold, and
a man parked his car and came over
here with a cup of hot chocolate,”
Noyce said.
Since March, Fleming has kept
vigil over the intersection, but she
remains a bit in awe of the popularity
of her predecessor, who always had a
small bag of goodies to give away to
the kids, who showed up Friday with
hugs and goodbyes.
“Everybody keeps asking about
Nina,” Fleming said.
“She has been great helping me,
familiarizing me with the good drivers, and the system. They’ll never forget this lady, that’s for sure.”

This “Man Sale” sign posted on the Netherwood and North Oak
streets was actually for a garage sale, but had many Oregon residents wondering what exactly it meant.

Mystery of ‘Man
Sale’ sign solved
A sign reading “Man
Sale” put on the corner of
Netherwood and North Oak
streets had Oregon a little
puzzled this week.
But don’t worry, former
pastor and Oregon resident Gail Brown didn’t get
sick of her husband, Al, as
the cryptic sign might suggest. The couple put out
the sign to get people to
come to their garage sale
this weekend full of stuff
they thought men might like
such as tools.

like at school.
Yes, I am talking about the
workplace bullies. You know
them, you’ve seen them, and you
may even be one of them!
It seems almost every week I
am talking to someone who is
sharing stories of workplace bullying and the emotional trauma it
is causing. The energetic qualities of bullying can leave a person feeling intimidated, embarrassed, threatened, fearful, disrespected, undermined, harassed
and victimized.  
Our jobs are connected to our
survival instincts, because it’s
how we support ourselves and
families. If we feel threatened
or harassed in the workplace,
the intensity of our feelings can
skyrocket into unhealthy levels
of stress. There is usually no
recourse or support for victims of
workplace bullying. Many times
the only relief is to find a different job.
Much like my first-grade
teacher, many bosses and supervisors either don’t know how to
confront the behaviors of a bully
or aren’t interested in doing so.
This is a significant problem
whose time has come to be confronted and taken into the light.
No longer can we, as a nation,
deny this abusive behavior. We
must seek solutions.
Fortunately there is a growing
number of groups and websites
committed to stopping all forms
of bullying. These organizations
are researching, compiling and
sharing information and assistance for people affected by this
An excerpt from shows how prevalent
the problem is with both men and
“According to the Workplace
Bullying Institute, up to a third
of workers may be the victims
of workplace bullying … The
New York Times found that
about 60 percent of workplace

bullies are men, and they tend to
bully male and female employees
equally. Female bullies, however,
are more likely to bully other
The Workplace Bullying
Institute, a national organization
working to enact employment
legislation aimed to combat that,
also found that “often it is the
least skilled who attack the best
and brightest workers.”
On its website,, it says the United
States is “the last of the western
democracies to introduce a law
forbidding bullying-like conduct in the workplace. … U.S.
employers are loathe to stop bullying, let alone acknowledge its
The result can be traumatic.
“In its more severe forms,
it (bullying) triggers a host of
stress-related health complications – hypertension, autoimmune disorders, depression,
anxiety and PTSD,” the website
One of the roadblocks to creating laws or legislation against
bullying is the subjective nature
of the behavior. It’s a slippery
beast that can be hard to define
with pen and paper. But just
because it’s hard doesn’t mean
we shouldn’t do it.
The more we educate ourselves
and the more we talk about the
subject, the easier this difficult
task will be to solve. It’s important that we get involved, that we
reach out to each other and offer
what support we can.
If someone you know is dealing with a workplace bully,
let them know that they are
not alone and this is not their
fault. Caring is the first step to
solving any problem and it can
mean so much to let someone
know that you care about them.

Rewrite your life
Writing can help us deal with many of life’s problems. Many
teenagers have weathered the storm and stress of those
turbulent years by keeping a journal, and that same practice
can help virtually anyone who can express him or herself
in writing. Writing about our fears and anxieties has a way
of making them a little less scary and often gives us insight
into how to resolve the situation. It can also be helpful to
write about our lives in a way that essentially rewrites the
story. Someone who is feeling a lack of courage might write
about themselves displaying courage. We all have stories
to tell, and in thinking about our lives we have a tendency
to place our lives into an overarching narrative. That is, we
tell ourselves a particular story that makes sense of our life.
The story we tell as a teenager is likely to be very different
from the one we tell in our twenties or thirties, and there is
obviously some wisdom to periodically updating our story.
What is the story that you currently tell about your life, and
how would you like to see it changed? As we get older, and
especially as we approach our “golden years,” we should
think more about whether our story really does fit the life we
have lived, and the story that we hope our life will someday
tell. We should also remember that the final version can’t be
written until our life is complete.

Photography business gets ready for senior picture season

For years, Michelle
Allen-Daubenspeck managed her photography business out of her basement
until she acquired a storefront in Fitchburg in 2007.
But after three years
there, she found the space
“impersonal” for a commercial business that is
about working with people. She then discovered a
building on Market Street
in Oregon, where she lives,
and Michelle Allen Photography has been there for the
three years since.
“It’s going pretty good,”
she said of business.
Allen-Daubenspeck does
a range of photography,
from business and newborn
portraits to senior pictures
and weddings.
“I really like to interact with people, and kids
especially are my favorite,”
she said. “You never know
what you’re going to get.”
Most of her business currently, though, comes from
senior pictures, of which
she does up to 120 per year,
most falling over the summer months.
She’s looking forward to
that part picking back up

A home at The Legend at
Bergamont will be among 27
custom homes in six Dane
County neighborhoods featured in the two-week Parade
of Homes event starting next
Sponsored by the Madison Area Builders Association (MABA), the Parade of
Homes runs June 14-29. It has
been an annual Madison tradition for more than 60 years.
Parade homes showcase
the latest styles, colors, features and accents. They are
also built with a commitment
to the environment, using
green-building techniques,
energy-efficient HVAC systems, appliances and recycled
materials whenever possible.
Other communities in this
year’s Parade of Homes are:
Bristol Gardens (Bristol),
Westbridge (Waunakee),
Savannah Parks (Deerfield),
Kilkenny Farms (Waunakee)
and Rivers Turn at Conservancy Place (DeForest).
Residences at The Legend at Bergamont are built
around the 7,330-yard,
18-hole championship golf
course designed by pro golfer Andy North. 
“It really is an honor for
Oregon and The Legend
at Bergamont to be part of
the Parade of Homes,” said
Jason Kratochwill, co-owner
of Alterra Design Homes,
which has a Parade home at
Bergamont. “Other communities in the area did not get
the votes they needed to be
Alterra Design Homes’
Parade entry is a missionstyle home featuring an open
floor plan with a mix of
trendy color schemes, custom Amish cabinetry, two
laundries, a mudroom, command center, custom craft/
hobby built-ins and even a
moving granite island. 

Oregon home:
857 Alpine Parkway

“We tried to show what
you can do with a house in
an efficient package,” said
The Legend at Bergamont
offers architectural standards
that ensure attractive, wellappointed homes.
“People often think of
Oregon as smaller and
more rural,” Kratochwill
said. “When we bring visitors through for the first time
they are amazed at the neighborhood and the golf course
and the quality of life it represents.”
One of the biggest benefits
of attending the Parade of
Homes is getting quality oneon-one time with the builders
and their staff, who make it a
point to greet visitors.
Kratochwill estimates that
the Parade of Homes will
bring about 5-8,000 people
to Oregon over its two-week
The builders love to talk
shop, so be sure to take pictures, makes notes and ask
“Oregon is a great place
to live and The Legend at
Bergamont deserves a lot
of credit for committing to
Oregon’s long-term growth
and prosperity,” said Kratochwill. 
Advantages to building or owning a Parade
home include discounts or
upgrades on many items that
people want for their homes,
including appliances and
landscaping. Custom details
can sometimes be added at
no extra charge.
Hours are 4-8 p.m. Monday to Friday and 11 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For information, visit

Onesti broke a string on
his first-ever return at the
WIAA Division 1 individual state tennis tournament
inside Nielsen Tennis Stadium.
Rather than dwelling on
what he though was at first
a bad omen, Onesti and No.
1 doubles partner, senior
Dakota Tollakson, went on
to highlight a school-record
three flights at last week’s
state tournament.
“I had to go over to my
bag and grab my backup
racket, which I hadn’t used
for two years,” Onesti said.
“It felt a little different, but
it’s just a racket.”
Onesti and Tollakson
(19-5) ended the opening
round as the only Panthers
to make it out of the first
round Thursday, defeating
Appleton North senior Sam
Moeller and junior David
Booker 6-2, 6-4.
“It was huge for us to
get a win and not go 0-3 as
a team today,” Tollakson
Both teams had their
serve broke in the first three
games, though Onesti and
Tollakson settled down first
and rattled off wins in four
of the next five sets against
Moeller and Booker (13-5)
to closeout the first set.
Onesti floated a beautiful
lob to corner for a winner
to put Oregon up 3-2 in the
second set. The seniors won
three of the next five games
to then take the match.

The Oregon High School girls
soccer team was going to need
to step up on offense in the second half if it was going to win its
second straight regional title last
Saturday against Burlington.
The third-seeded and host Panthers trailed by a goal early in the
second of the Division 2 regional
final, but senior midfielder Eliza
Neidhart and junior midfielder
Kelsey Jahn both stepped up to
give Oregon a 2-1 win and a trip
to sectionals.
“Before (Burlington) scored,

ever gotten a PK, we wanted her
to take it,” Grutzner said.

Torhorst finished the hole

It was a difficult end to the
season for the Oregon High
School baseball team Thursday, June 5, in a WIAA
Division 1 regional final at
Stoughton High School.
Junior pitcher Mitch
Weber retired 13 straight
batters at one point on the
mound and only allowed
one earned run on six hits
in six innings, but it was not
enough in a 3-2 loss to the
second-seeded Vikings.
Oregon (13-15), seeded
seventh, held a 2-1 lead
into the bottom of the sixth,
but an error on the second
baseman ended Weber’s
streak of retired batters.
Weber then over threw the
first baseman on a pick-off
attempt, and catcher Zach
Hasselberger ended up on
third base.
Shortstop Austin Miller
followed with an RBI single
to left field to tie the game
at 2.
After two groundouts
moved Miller to third, senior
PJ Rosowski singled to right
field to score Hasselberger.
“When the catcher calls
a pitch and you shake it off
and go to another pitch and
it ends up being a base hit
scoring the winning run, that
is tough,” said Weber, who
finished with six strikeouts.
“But you have to come back
and keep going. Unfortunately, we just didn’t score
enough runs tonight.”
Oregon took a 2-1 lead in
the top of the second inning
after senior designated hitter
Colin Byron reached base
on an error by the third baseman. Senior shortstop Logan

Laski followed with a single
to left field, and senior first
baseman Tyler Mortensen
had a sacrifice bunt to put
runners on second and third.
Senior outfielder Austin
Adams followed with an
RBI bunt single on a safety
squeeze attempt, scoring
Byron, but Rosowski struck
out the next two batters to
strand Laski at third.
But it looked like that
was all Oregon was going
to need as Weber got into
a groove on the mound.
He had four straight 1-2-3
innings before the sixth.
“I changed my pace and
threw a couple of balls in
a row where I slowed it
down,” he said. ‘I usually
work fast but just slowed it
down and started changing
speeds up and tried to keep
them off balance the best
that I could.”
Oregon grabbed a 1-0 lead
in the top of the first. Senior

third baseman Ross Galloway singled to left, and
senior catcher Jere Bauer
later hit an RBI double to

at 1 in the bottom of the

He struck out nine and

it didn’t take away from

School board president
Dan Krause said he wants
to break the board’s recent
cycle of negotiating with
the OEA for most, if not all
of the school year before
reaching a deal.
“I’m hoping to get a new
bargain done for 2014-15
this month,” he said. “That
would really be wonderful.
We’d like to capitalize on
that momentum.”
Krause said a pending
Supreme Court decision on
Act 10 may come within the
month, which could affect
negotiations, but he said that
outcome wouldn’t affect the
urgency to start negotiations
for the 2014-15 school year.
“The sooner, the better,
anyway for getting these
deals done,” he said. “We
don’t want to be bargaining
all the time, which is what
we’ve been doing the last
few years. It’s frustrating.”

Board disagreements
The board voted 5-2 to
approve the deal, with members Steve Zach and Jeff

Ramin opposed. Zach criticized Human Assets Committee (HAC) members,
who led the negotiations, for
changing the deal in recent
weeks without “having any
input from the board, which
is against all protocol this
board has had in the past.”
“We have not had, as a
board, the opportunity to
have that change in direction discussed by the board
before you agreed to it as a
committee,” he said. “We
were near a deal on this (in
OEA president Mark
Lindsey said Zach “mischaracterized” the nature
of the recent negotiation
between the OEA and HAC.
“We were not close to
an agreement (in March);
I don’t know where you
come up with that,” he said.
“This is a fair agreement
that was reached by two
parties negotiating in good
faith, which was not always
the case in the past. Your
mandate from the voters in
this community was to work
with us – this the first time
you’ve worked with us.”
Zach was also concerned
why the tech ed and agriculture teachers did not also
receive the 2.07 percent
increase along with the rest
of the teachers. Board member Charles Uphoff said
OEA officials felt that was
the most equitable way of
addressing the issue.
“Because of the significant supplemental pay given to a few individuals, they
felt it would sort of rub salt
in the wound to have additional compensation beyond
that, which would essentially come from the remaining
teachers,” he said.
Board member and HAC
member Rae Vogeler said
the agreement was reached
“under budget” and after
negotiations with the previous board had stalled.
“The OEA was very happy with this, we were very
happy with this, (Bill) Houlihan (said) ‘Great job, job
well done,’” she said. “It’s
showing a sense of us working mutually together with
our unionized employees in
a respectful way … and a
fiscally responsible way for
the district.”
Lindsey said the board
for too long has been giving
pay increases to new teachers at the expense of current
“We won’t stand for it
anymore,” he said. “Until
we fix total compensation
in this district, you cannot
(take) from existing teachers to compensate just new
ones. It’s unfair.”
Citing a national shortage
of computer science graduates, the board unanimously
approved reinstating a coding/computer science course
at Oregon High School.
The pilot program will
be based on a Technology
Education and Literacy in
Schools (TEALS) model
and will offer students a
hands-on introduction to
computer science, according
to information provided by
the district.
The course would begin in
the fall as independent study
under the direction of OHS
teacher Bruce Nelson, with
hopes to offer a more official
course in the 2015-16 school
