According to Officer Mike Ashbeck, the Wabeno Police Dept. would like your help in naming their new Police Dog. The two-year old German Shepherd is an immigrant of the Netherlands where he was born and trained by the British Royal Brigade. If you would like to help name their new dog, stop in at any one of the libraries in Forest County and Lakewood. If you would like to send your suggestion via email please send it to: There are four categories that their new dog will be assisting the Department with: 1. keeping drugs out of our schools, 2. Will be used to sniff out drug and narcotic’s in a response to a call 3. to assist in locating lost children and adults and 4. Assist officer’s by utilizing article searches. These ‘article searches’ may consist of an article of clothing or an item that would carry a persons scent. Having their new canine officer, the Dept. will be able to relieve other county departments use of their canine’s when needed. But in return, they may be called upon to assist one of those depts. as well. Officer’s Steve and Mike Ashbeck spoke before members of the Lakewood Area Chamber of Commerce recently explaining their need for funds to care for and continue their training of their new canine officer. To continue the program the dept will need $47,000 a year. Grants have been applied for but know that if awarded, will not be the entire amount per year needed. If you would like to donate to this new program, please contact the non-emergency phone number, 715-473-3121, for the Wabeno Police Dept..

Townsend author Kathleen Marie Marsh announces that Volume II of The Truth About Townsend: Poor Man’s Paradise (19401980) is now available! This is her second book on the history of Oconto County’s northernmost township. “Volume II contains over 200 photographs, 65,000 words, and at least a quarter million bits of information in 216 carefully researched pages,” says Marsh. “I have spent four years researching and writing the Town of Townsend’s history, and I believe both books paint an accurate portrait of what life was like here during the years covered.” Marsh added, “I am sure people will be delighted to read the many interesting narratives that the new book contains. I worked hard to research every single lead or verify every interesting tidbit of information people gave me while I was working on the book. Of course, there are two stories about town residents: Julia Lauder, who was a worldwide celebrity, and Andrew Bagocus who mysteriously disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 1947, which will gain immediate attention, but there are dozens of others that will be just as eye-opening, interesting, and entertaining to readers.” Soft-cover copies of Volume II sell for $25.00, tax included. A very limited number of hard cover copies are available for $35.00. Books may be ordered by calling 715-276-6515 or by emailing kathiemarsh@yahoo.com. For mail orders, send a check to Otter Run Books; 16965 Nicolet Road, Townsend, WI 54175. Please add $4.95 for each book to cover the cost of shipping.

UNAC by Kathleen Marsh
A dozen writers gathered to discuss and share their work at the June meeting of Up North Authors Circle (UNAC) held on June17 at the Lakewood Library. A very enthusiastic “welcome back” was extended to summer resident Lynn Burlingham and Townsend poet Jim Adamczyk. Townsend author Kathleen Marsh led the meeting as she showed off her latest book, Poor Man’s Paradise, Volume II of The Truth About Townsend. Marsh noted that the book has been selling well and early reviews have been excellent. Tom Thielke of Crandon then informed the group that his comprehensive history of Lakewood will be ready on July 26. This is Tom’s first book, a definitive and meticulously researched local history book on Lakewood that is a must-read for anyone in northern Oconto County. Next up was Kansan Lynn Burlingham, who shared a short story. Lynn received much helpful feedback as she is pushing herself to explore via fiction the depth and despair of people suffering from mental illness. Group co-founder Evelyn Gaede, who writes as Jamie Pilant, then read a revised introduction of her second book, Jenny’s Destiny. Evelyn has been working hard to complete the novel, a sequel to her first book, Chelsea’s Doom. As always, Townsend poet Jim Adamczyk, got a round of applause and kudos as he read one of his delightful poems. The next meeting of UNAC is scheduled for Wednesday, July 15, at the Lakewood Library, from 6:00-8-00 p.m. New members are always welcome to attend.

Can Chiropractic Help Me?
by Bonnie Vrchota E: LifeCoach2@aol.com Back pain doesn't have to be permanent. With X-rays to see where the problem is and a consultation on the best strategy to get your back healthy, managing your spinal health through chiropractic care just might keep you off prescription or overthe-counter drugs. Not all chiropractors are alike. These tips might help you decide if it's time to change doctors. How did you find your chiropractor? Ask friends, relatives, neighbors and health care facilities. Does your chiropractor make you feel comfortable? Take the time to explain your managed care, how long it might take & how insurance might help? Explain how he/she can help you through manipulation, traction, electrical stimulation, massage and/or rehab? Offer a rehabilitative component to his/her practice such as stretching, strength training exercises and/or massage? Refer out to physicians if he/she doesn't feel they can help you? If you feel your chiropractor isn't interested in you, is too pushy, sells you on the idea you need to be there weekly the rest of your life, takes too many Xrays, isn't helping your problem after a few months or tells you without manipulation you could be harming yourself; consider changing chiropractors. Find a good chiropractor then tell your family and friends. Decide for yourself if it's time for a change.

A Word or Two From Dr. Jason Where's The Fruit?
Over half of the most aggressively advertised children's foods that prominently feature fruit on their packaging contain no fruit at all, according to a study released by the Strategic Alliance for Healthy Food and Activity Environments. The study - Where's the Fruit? reveals that 51 percent of these products do not contain fruit, and another 16 percent contain only minimal amounts of fruit despite prominent fruit promotions on the packaging. "Parents drawn to products that seem healthier for their children based on references to fruit on the packaging are being deceived," explains Leslie Mikkelsen, a registered dietician with the Strategic Alliance and lead author of the study. "Food and beverage companies are some of the most sophisticated communicators in the world and are clearly capable of accurately reflecting what is in their products if they wanted to." The Where's the Fruit? study identifies the most heavily advertised children's food products that include words and images of fruit and/or fruit ingredients on the packaging. A total of 37 products were included in the final study, and their ingredient lists were analyzed to determine the presence of fruit ingredients. A full 51% of the products contained no fruit ingredients at all despite the images of fruits and use of words such as "fruity," "fruit flavors" and "berry" on the packaging. "The nation is facing a staggering epidemic of chronic diseases that result from poor eating and physical inactivity," cautions Dr. Andria Ruth, a pediatrician for the Diabetes Resource Center of Santa Barbara. "Children are particularly affected and these food companies are making parents' jobs even harder by using misleading packaging to lead them to think that they are making a healthy choice when they are not."

Gill Finishes 5th Grade with Top Score in Math
6th Graders to Share Action Plan Benefits of Being Drug Free with Painted Mural
A group of 6th graders attended Rural Middle School Teen Institute this past March. While at the institute, the students decided on an action plan for their community. They wanted to make a mural showing the benefits of being drug free. They raised the money for the mural and were able to accomplish their goal. With the help of Connie and Tim Friesen, the students painted the mural and are hoping to have it hanging in the community soon. Shown are Lily Bath, Autumn Huettl, Colby Harrison, Jake Kroll, Holly Spaude, and Cecelia Harrison. Alissa Gill is the seventh 5th grader to pass all 44 levels of Math Facts in a Flash. Math Facts in a Flash is a computer program that gives students at all levels valuable practice on their addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and more. Alissa also finished fifth grade with the top score in math.

The fifth grade from Wabeno Elementary have been participating in the D.A.R.E. program. On May 21st, they took a field trip to Crandon to celebrate the conclusion of the D.A.R.E. program. They started with root beer floats and listened to Tanesha Burba, Tiara Thompson, Nacie Calarco, Teagen Bodoh, Clayton Ehlers, and Ryan Brauer read their speeches. Afterwards, they toured the jail, played games, and had snacks. It was an educational and fun trip. The fifth grade would like to thank the veterans at the VFW hall for the snacks and allowing us to play games and Sergeant Marvin for setting up the jail tour.

Sue Geneske has created a Spreadsheet to keep track of the miles. They are starting out slow but will eventually need to walk 2 miles a day to get the miles in before their Paducah trip. She is encouraging everyone to get exercising even if your not going to Paducah next April. A good way to get in shape for Paducah, or otherwise.

Before 1881, we can only wonder what the northern portion of Oconto County was like. A good guess would be ‘wilderness’. That ‘wilderness’ changed drastically when the Holt & Balcolm company set up camp on the McCaslin Brook. This camp, named Depot Camp, is still sitting on its original site on the grounds of the McCauslin Brook Golf Course. Logging brought men to the area which brought settlement. Side note; there are two spellings of McCaslin/McCauslin Brook, next issue! In 1889, the Mountain Post Office was established. Andrew Frost served as its first postmaster. In 1894, Potawatomi Indians groups settled in the northern edge of Oconto County and southern areas of Forest County. In 1896, John Frye settled on 40 acres of land in the Lakewood area under the Homestead Act signed by Pres. Theodore Roosevelt. The railroad was coming through Lakewood which gave the local economy a boost. J.G. Anderson built a home on the west end of town. This building stands today and is now known as the Olde Homestead Gift Shop. 1897 saw the completion of the railroad through Lakewood and also the establishment of the Post Office which was housed in the Anderson home with J.G. Anderson as the first postmaster. In fall of 1905, the Lakewood schoolhouse was completed. In the Spring of 1907 a fire caused by a steam loader at The Oconto County Works in Lakewood claimed one of five carloads of logs that were standing on the tracks despite the efforts of many to douse the flames. June 23, 1909, John P. Schultz becomes postmaster of the newly established Townsend Post Office. Also in 1909, Albert Anderson and Bernard Mosling start up the Lakewood Mercantile Co. across from the railroad station in Lakewood. 1912 saw the last log drive down the Oconto River, bringing an end to the big lumber era in our area. Oscar S. Isaacson, who worked with Albert Anderson in the Lakewood Mercantile was named postmaster and held Post

Back In The Day…
Before Lakewood was a tourist mecca, it was home to loggers and farmers and a scattering of businesses that thrived in our beautiful northwoods. Some familiar names of the era were; Holt & Balcolm, ‘the’ name in logging for the Lakewood area. The company had several camps in the area on both the McCaslin Brook and Oconto River. Originating in 1881, the Holt & Balcolm Lumber Company had a long run, ceasing operations in 1938. Farming was, in general, what loggers did for a living during the summer months. Some farming family names still exist in the area today, maybe you’ll recognize a few; Jeranek, Smith, Jackson, Keesler, Smyth, Rosio, Chalender, Lowery, Finsky, Kuss, Christenson, Rasmussen, Redinger, Greasby, Conley, Anderson, Marshall, Bohm, Bowman, Fuller, Fenn, Coles and Haessley. Assuredly, there are many more, as farming was not only a living but a way of life. In any town, be it large or small, there is always that certain family that seemed to get the town going. Lakewood’s ‘first family’ is John G. and Stacy Anderson. Their home, which stands yet today as the Olde Homestead Gift Shop, is noted as the first ‘real’ house in Lakewood. Mr. Anderson is also credited with building the brick structure that houses the Lakewood Area Chamber of Commerce and the Pie Shoppe, it was originally a laundry for the railroad and loggers. John’s brother, Albert, was one of the original owner/operators of the Lakewood Mercantile Co.

Early Bird Shoppers
During the logging era, shopping was a one stop affair with lumber camps operating stores at their larger sites. Anything a lumberjack needed, he could get at the camp store. But as lumberjacks began to actually settle in the area and start families, the opportunity arose for other stores to be built. The first in the area was the trading post at Waubee Lake. Built around 1884 by Able, Abram and Henry Tourtilott, the post served settlers, loggers and Indians that frequented the area. The post was sold to the Langlois’, then to Hick McConley. The business was believed to be located on the shore of Waubee Lake near what is Powers Lane today. It is said that the first store in Lakewood was built by Delbert Baker and was later sold to the Gehling Brothers. After some time, the building became a tavern. Ike Young built both a hotel and a store in Lakewood which were consumed by the 1914 fire that devastated the town. On July 12, 1905, the Western Town Lot Co. of Iowa, sold a small parcel of land to Albert O. Anderson and Bernard Mosling. In 1909 the two men put up a wood frame building that would become the Lakewood Mercantile Co. Anderson and Mosling soon found the mercantile business too confining and hired Oscar S. Isaacson to run it for them. In 1919, Oscar purchased the business.

Lakewood Meal Site Cookout
A cookout for seniors is planned at the Lakewood Town Hall on Wednesday July 22, 2009. The cookout will include games, good food and socializing with a suggested donation of $3.50. The doors will open at 10:00 A.M. Participants are asked to bring non-perishable items which will be donated to the Townsend Food Pantry. The workers at the meal site hope to see a large turnout for this event. The meal site is sponsored by the Oconto County Commission on Aging. Reservations should be made at least one day before the cookout. For reservations contact Judy Lewins 850-1451, Joyce West 850-0336 or Rose Photos: (L-R) Ladies of the north Hannah Hauser (Kathy Moerman); Lucy Holt (Kathleen Marsh); and Henrietta Hooker (Beth Hartman) at the Holt and Balcom Logging Camp Museum after their first performance on July 2.

McCaslin Lions Host Kids Fishing Outing
The McCaslin lions club hosted their annual fishing outing for 29 special needs children from Wabeno Elementary School. The outing was at Silver Moon Springs trout pond in Elton. Fishing was good. Trophies were awarded to boys and girls that caught the first, second and third largest fish. For the boys trophies were awarded for the largest fish to Jordan Buski, the second largest fish to Gage Micoley and the third largest to Austin Pratt. For the girls trophies were awarded to Trina Leonard for the largest fish, Ryann Mason for the second largest and Alice Reininger for the third largest fish. A lunch was served before departing back to school. The McCaslin Lions thank John & Ryan Nickel, the memorial to Edward Edds and Pintsch’s Hardware for their contributions making this outing the success that it was.

MYSTERY IN THE MUSEUM
In the last month, members of the historical society have been busy getting the museum ready for opening for the season. One of things that must be done is to catalog any artifacts. In the process of sorting through items, an unidentified picture was found. There was no paperwork to indicate who had donated the picture or what the relationship to Forest County is. On the back of the picture, the individuals are identified as follows: Left rear: Adela Goller - mother Right rear: Clara Schroeder - grandmother Right front: Wilbur Goller - son Left front: Louis Liprold (maiden name Knaack) In the 1930 Federal census, Milwaukee, District 336, an Adela Goller with her husband Christ J. and sons Wilbur and Robert are listed under the household of Ludwig SCHRVEDER, wife Clara, sons Erwin and Herbert. Adela is listed as daughter of Ludwig and Clara. The information provided by the census seems to indicate that this is a good possible identification with the exception of the spelling of the last name of Schroeder/Schrveder. However, it is well known that census takers didn't not always spell names correctly. The surname of LIPROLD could not be found on any searchs. It is very possible that the name was not spelled correctly when written on the picture. In addition, the first name of Louis is normally a man's name, not a woman's. The first name should probably be Louise. The question is, what relationship do these women have to Forest County? If anyone is familiar with these names or you recognize anyone in the picture, please let us know at the historical society.

Local Pilots Help Young People Discover Flight Through EAA
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (June 26, 2009) — An area pilot has now given more than 900 young people a free demonstration airplane ride as part of the EAA “Young Eagles” program, which is introducing a new generation to the world of flight. Among the more than 40,000 pilots around the world who have donated their time and aircraft to the effort is Ed Jeziorny of Lakewood, Wis. All pilots in the Young Eagles program explain the safe operation of airplanes and principles of flight before the short trips. Participating young people become official Young Eagles with the flight, receiving a certificate signed by the pilot and Young Eagles chairman Harrison Ford. The names of the pilots and the participants are also included in the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on permanent display in the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wis., and online through the Young Eagles web site. The Young Eagles Program was unveiled by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in July 1992 and has now flown more than 1.4 million young people, primarily between the ages of 8 and 17. EAA is a worldwide organization with 160,000 members who enjoy all facets of recreational flight. The Young Eagles program goal is to allow young people to experience positive activities and discover the possibilities available to them within the world of aviation. For more information, visit www.youngeagles.org. You can contact Ed at the Pour Haus in Lakewood, WI to arrange for a flight.

A Gift of Time & Talents
Troy Hoffman of Hoffman Landscaping and Construction LLC of Townsend, recently donated some of his considerable talent to the residents at Nu-Roc Community Healthcare. Troy’s wife, Valerie, is the Director of Nursing at Nu-Roc. She was watching with amusement one afternoon as the Maintenance Department was laying brick pavers to form a sidewalk around a newly constructed water fountain. They repeatedly kept digging the pavers up to make them perfect. Val made a phone call and like all good husbands, Troy did as he was asked. He brought some of his crew to Nu-Roc, and with a captive audience, had the sidewalk completed in no time. The new patio and fountain is sure to bring much pleasure to the residents this summer. Thank you so much Troy, for your generous gift of time and talent!
