State law to affect spring election write-in votes

By Ginna Young
Voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for officials in the coming weeks, but some may not know of voting changes for 2015. Those who intend to run as a write-in
candidate, now need to file registration papers with the clerk
in order to be counted.

33rd alumni weekend

set for Feb. 14 & 15
The 33rd annual Lake Holcombe mens basketball and
womens volleyball tournaments, sponsored by the Lake Holcombe Alumni Tournament Committee, will be held Saturday, Feb. 14, and Sunday, Feb. 15, at Lake Holcombe School.
Mens basketball games are set to start at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, with 10 games scheduled.
Women participating in the volleyball tournament should
meet in the small gym Saturday, 9 a.m., to determine teams.
A group photo will also be taken at that time, and a roundrobin tournament will follow.
Four mens basketball games are scheduled for Sunday,
starting at 11 a.m. A championship game, starting at 2:15
p.m., will conclude the weekends activities. Graduates from
2008-2009 are the returning champions.
One Lake Holcombe school supporter will receive the
Honorary Sports Fan award during halftime of the championship game.
The Lake Holcombe PRIDE committee will also hold their
Super Raffle drawing Sunday, following the completion of
games. Tickets, if any are left, will be available throughout
the weekend and support Lake Holcombe Schools. For more
information about the raffle, contact Bruce Anderson at 715579-0734.

The act went into effect April 2, 2014, for Wisconsin as

part of the 2013 Assembly Bill 419.
It helps that you dont have to count and record Mickey
Mouse and Donald Duck, and everybody else who wants to
fill a write-in, said Judy Talbot, Cornell mayor. It also
means if you want to be a serious write-in candidate and you
put flyers up, but dont come to the city office, your votes
dont count.
If a write-in candidate has not registered, the vote will only
be eligible if there is an open position where no certified candidates appear on the ballot.
Residents may vote for officials at the following dates and
In Cadott: The Cadott School Board will hold a primary
election Tuesday, Feb. 17, at the Cadott Fire Hall, Town of
Arthur and Town of Sigel. In the running are incumbents P.

Charlotte Seibel and Terri Goettl.

Full-sports co-op something Cornell wants to look at

By Monique Westaby
Right now, the basketball numbers are down for both
school districts, said Dave Elliott, Cornell principal, of Cornell and Lake Holcombe. Both boys and girls. Volleyball
has been high in both districts.
Elliott gave that information in response to a question from
board member Paul Wallerius, at a regular Cornell School
Board meeting Jan. 26. Wallerius had asked Elliott if he had
talked to Lake Holcombe about co-oping the sports, following an administrative report that had been sent to board members before the meeting.

Mr. (Greg) Sonnentag (Cornells AD) was supposed to

talk to Cindy Miller (Lake Holcombes AD) on Friday, said
Elliott. I didnt get a chance to talk to him about that so I
didnt bring it up in my report here (at the meeting), other
than in there (emailed report).
Elliott says while numbers for volleyball have been high,
they may be lower in the future, judging by predicted upcoming numbers.
Its getting kind of foolish to have just a couple not (cooped), Elliott said. We should really buy in and get that
taken care of.
With a basketball and volleyball co-op between the two
schools, all sports from Cornell and Lake Holcombe would
then be combined. Elliott says with the higher numbers, it
could mean two JV teams, where freshmen would play their
own games, and games could be scheduled for them.
The problem with having even JV sometimes in the Lakeland Conference is some of them dont even have JV teams,
says Elliott. Were getting to the point now where our injuries, with the boys and with the girls, that we have to drop
a couple JV games ourselves.
Its something I want to look at.
Paul Schley, Cornell superintendent, said for a basketball
and volleyball co-op, student and community support would
be crucial.
I wish it would happen, said Schley. Then, if were in
the conference that has no JV teams a lot of times, maybe it
makes sense to look at the Cloverbelt Conference together.
Ive mentioned that to Greg and Cindy as well. Id love it
if we were co-oped in everything. Lets get in the Cloverbelt,
have some good competition. And youve got teams for JV,

On the third potato, I realized I dont always know, but moms do
Thursday, February 5, 2015


By Monique Westaby
Managing Editor
Since learning Ihave a
tiny human growing inside me, Ive spent a lot
of time thinking about
motherhood. Many of my
friends have been more
than willing to offer their advice on the
topic, and my mother has been no exception.
Although I say this with appreciation at
all the words of direction Ive received, Ive
always been a little, lets say, uncomfortable,
with guidance, especially from my parents.
To explain, lets go back a few years. OK,
maybe a few decades.
As a small child, mom would warn me to
scream if anyone talked to me or even
looked at me. Id giggle and say, I know
Mom. Shed told me before I shouldnt talk
to strangers, but I always questioned if Id
actually scream if the situation happened. It
never did, so I guess Ill never know.
During my driving age, kind words of direction bounced off my eye rolls as I walked
out the door while my mom said, Drive
safe, watch out for deer.
Mom, Id respond. I know.
Shed smile and Id close the door behind
me, with teenage annoyance oozing from
my veins.
The years went on, and Mom and I grew
closer as I finally realized her suggestions
were there to help, not nag. The stubborn in
my blood would still come out in sarcasm
now and again, but I tried to keep it under
I knew the be safe was just another way
of her saying I love you, and the dont hit
any deer was merely a reminder to watch
the ditches. Although Im sure she still doesnt appreciate the sarcastic I was planning
on it, but now that you told me not to I wont

hit any deer, response I give now and then.

Now, while I sit with child, I often reminisce about the advice my parents gave me.
I remember those moments where Id be
told something I didnt want to hear, and
think, When I have kids, Im never going to
do that.
I chuckle at the thought, and my husband
laughs when I tell him what rules this little
kid will have once its born. He reminds me
every time what I said just a few years ago,
before parenthood was actually a reality.
And then this weekend happened.
My mom had just returned from vacation
and was getting over not feeling well, so I
offered to make her and my dad dinner for
the big game. They gladly accepted and I
brought all the supplies needed for a delicious, health conscious meal.
We talked about the baby, and how sick
Ive been, while I prepared the seasoning for
a perfect pork tenderloin. Mom offered her
advice on eating correctly, so her grandchild
would be healthy.

and nutrition, and I cut the first few potatoes

with ease and dropped them into the bowl.
And then, on the third potato, as if God was
saying, Im sick of you acting like you
know everything when it comes to your
mother, the knife slid through the potato
and into my finger.
Owww, I moaned and walked to the
Are you OK? Mom asked.
Even with my back turned and finger
throbbing, I could almost feel the I told you
so smile on her face. While she denies it,
Im about positive she whispered those four
words under her breath as she got me a
The next several minutes were a blur as I
tried to numb my finger and stop the bleeding, but one thing came through clear as

Im kidding. In reality, after 26 years,
maybe I should finally admit I dont know
everything, but apparently, mothers do. If
only Id realized that 10 minutes sooner.

I know Mom, I said, using my response

for nearly everything.
In fact, I didnt, and dont know. Ive
never been pregnant before and shes a
three-time expert. But, since a child, Ive
known everything, so its become a reflex.
The pork was ready for the oven, and it
was time to cut up the baby red potatoes. I
washed and scrubbed each one, then asked
for a knife to quarter them. Mom dug
through the drawer and pulled out what
looked like a serrated samurai sword.
Whoa, I said. I just need a little knife.
She grabbed a smaller one and I reached
past her and picked up the littlest one still in
the drawer. I pulled it out of the sheath and
determined this would be the perfect size.
Be careful honey, she told me as I
turned back toward the cutting board with
my weapon. That knife is sharp. Ive only
used it once or twice.
Mom, I said, I know. Im 26 years old.
I know how to operate a knife.
We continued our conversation on babies

While crutches are sometimes necessary,
relying on them for too long weakens you.
When we find ourselves in tough situations, we take whatever help we can get. The
problem is we often take more than we ought
to. If youre the one helping your friend get
back on their feet, make sure to help them in
a way that actually helps.
Being supportive is helping someone help

helping them as if they couldnt help themselves.
Do your best to rely on other people as little as possible. If you can avoid relying on
someone, youre better off doing so.
This doesnt stem from the thought people
shouldnt be trusted, or we should do our
best to live our lives in solitude, instead, at

Toxic Charity, by Robert D. Lupton, is
about an author who does charity work for

After years of charity work, he realizes
how useless, and even counterproductive,
traditional charity actually is. Instead of

leaving them worse off.
Lupton found giving people handouts only

people learn to expect these handouts as if
they were entitled to them, fully relying on
them for their livelihood, with no plans for
making life changes.
If people can avoid doing work to get
what they need in life; they will. If you decide to become someones crutch, you may
very well find that person sucking you dry.

WisDOT cautions drivers

on winter driving speeds
From the WisDOT
Vehicles in a ditch along a highway or stuck in a snow
bank on the side of a street are a familiar part of Wisconsins winter landscape. Although drivers try to blame slippery roads for losing control of their vehicles, frequently
the truth is they are driving too fast for conditions.
Driving at the posted speed limit often will be too fast
for conditions when theres ice, snow and slick spots on
roadways or when visibility is reduced by snow, sleet and
fog, says Wisconsin State Patrol Captain Jeffrey J.
Frenette. The speed limit is set for safe driving on dry
pavement with good visibility. You might not be able to
stop or control your vehicle at the posted speed limit on a
slippery road or during hazardous weather.
It is illegal to drive at speeds that exceed what is reasonable and prudent under existing road conditions. Drivers
are required to adjust their speeds to take into account the
actual, and potential, hazards because of weather, highway
conditions or other traffic.
A violation of the state law is $213.10, with four demerit
points added to the drivers record. A second offense within
a 12-month period is $263.50, with four additional points.
The slogan Snow Means Slow also applies to fourwheel drive and other heavy-duty vehicles, which can still
slide, skid and fish tail while trying to slow down or stop
on slippery roads, says Frenette. If you drive too fast for
conditions and slide off the road or crash, you likely will
have to pay for an expensive traffic ticket, plus towing and
vehicle repair bills. Its much cheaper, safer and certainly
less frightening to maintain control of your vehicle by
slowing down.

From The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture,

Trade and Consumer Protection
Imagine going to your tax office with all of your paperwork and finding out that a return had already been submitted and paid out in your name. Or receiving a letter in
the mail that a tax return using your information was filed
in multiple states without your knowledge.
These are only a couple of examples of tax identity theft
that have been reported to the Wisconsin Department of
Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). Tax
ID theft causes delays in victims tax returns and costs victims significant time and money in repairing the damage to
their identities.
The DATCP asks consumers to review the security
around their personal information, but also to be on the
lookout for tax-related scams throughout the tax season.
Criminals love tax season because it presents so many
opportunities for theft and fraud, said Sandy Chalmers, division administrator for the DATCP. Tax ID theft is the
most commonly reported form of ID theft nationally.
Tax identity theft usually involves a criminal using your
stolen Social Security number (SSN) to file fraudulent tax
returns to obtain a refund. It can also happen when someone uses your SSN to get a job or claims your child as a
dependent on a tax return.
Tax identity thieves get your personal information in a
number of ways, including going through your trash or
stealing mail from your home or car; sending phony emails
that look like theyre from the IRS asking for personal information; employees at hospitals, nursing homes, banks

Expectant mothers urged to enroll in WIC program

From the Chippewa County Department
of Public Health
The Wisconsin Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program encourages all pregnant mothers to take advantage of services during the first trimester of pregnancy
to improve birth outcomes and the overall health of mom
and baby.
Serving over 100,000 participants monthly throughout
Wisconsins 72 counties, WICs goal is to provide nutrition
education, breastfeeding support, nutritious supplemental
foods, and health care referrals to low and moderate-income mothers.
Mothers who seek prenatal care earlier in pregnancy consume more key nutrients such as iron, folic acid, protein,
calcium, and other vitamins and minerals. WIC also improves the dietary intake of pregnant and postpartum
women. Studies have shown that WIC mothers have a reduced rate of premature birth and low birth-weight babies.
Pregnant mothers should schedule an appointment immediately with a family doctor to receive medical advice
and childbirth education, said Judy Fedie, registered dietitian and Chippewa County WIC program director. We
advise that prenatal nutrition is implemented as soon as
possible to prevent nutrition deficiencies and ensure

or dishonest tax preparers misusing their clients information or passing it along to identity thieves.
To reduce your risk of identity theft, the DATCP suggests
filing your tax return early in the tax season before identity
thieves do, and using a secure internet connection if you
file electronically. Dont use unsecure, publicly available
Wi-Fi hot spots at places like coffee shops or hotel lobbies.
The DATCPalso says you should mail your tax return
directly from the post office; shred copies of tax returns,
drafts or calculation sheets you no longer need; respond to
all mail from the IRS as soon as possible; and know that
the IRS wont contact you by email, text or social media.

Even if a mother has already delivered a baby, its not

Tales of our Beginnings

Cadott Cornell Lake Holcombe areas

Baker School

The Baker School was built in 1887 for a total of $25 by Carl Spaeth. It was located
at the southeast corner of County Highway XX and County Highway O. In 1892, it was
ordered that school was to begin the first Monday of October for a six month term. The
teacher was paid $25/month.
In 1961, the school was vacated as consolidation moved students to the Cadott Community School system. In May 1962, the building was moved to the upper Riverview
Park. In August 2010, the school building found its current resting place, when it was
moved across State Highway 27 to the Cadott Area Historical Society Grounds.
Tours can be arranged at the Historical Society, which is open Mondays, 9 a.m. to 4
p.m., except holidays.

Borderline Rebels 4-H club

meeting, workshop, pizzas

Commodity program has

openings for senior citizens

Submitted By Quinn Sikora, club reporter

The Borderline Rebels 4-H Club met Saturday, Jan. 10, to
hold their first meeting of 2015. This meeting of the Rebels
was a little different than most as it also included an arts and
crafts workshop, and pizza-making.
Before the meeting began, club members and advisers
fashioned themselves the crust of their own personal pizzas.
After tossing the crusts in the oven, Matt Irwin, Rebels Club
president, called the meeting to order.
Quentin Muska and Quinn Sikora led the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Pledge.
Saige Sikora, secretary, gave a re-cap of the December
Christmas caroling. She made a thank-you card for all members to sign for Bill Olson, of Huffcutt Concrete, who donated FFA fruit for the cheer baskets.
Quinn Sikora reported on the 4-H On-The-Air program
with Bob Bosold. Quinn also explained the start of the 4-H
Archery Program with 4-H Bow check day, which took place
in December. The first shoot at the Stanley Rod & Gun Club
was held Jan. 4.
Zach Irwin was officially installed as club treasurer by
Mary Muska.
As the group moved on to new business, members were
reminded to sign up for the Arts & Crafts Festival, to be held
March 7 at the Augusta Community Center.
A Box Lunch Auction will be held during the next meeting,
and the club also agreed to send care packages to military
persons stationed overseas on the motion of Quentin Muska.
After the conclusion of the meeting, everyone finished
preparing their pizzas and began to bake them. While they
were baking, members began their arts and crafts projects.
Several members made fleece blankets.
The next meeting is set for 6 p.m., Feb. 15, at the Delmar
Town Hall.

The Cornell Food Pantry is looking for seniors 60 and
older who meet income requirements to sign up for a monthly
food supplemental program. The pantry started the program
in the fall of last year, and quickly filled the quota.
Since that time, their have been some openings, said Ann
Sonderegger, with the Cornell Food Pantry. We just want to
get the word out to the elderly that there is help available.
The senior program, as part of the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, is designed to help seniors on a fixed income in Chippewa County.
Those who qualify receive a monthly supplemental package of foods such as canned fruits, vegetables and meat,
peanut butter, dried beans, cheese, juice, grains, rice and
Household Size:
Monthly Income:
(Add an additional $440 for each household member.)
Income requirements are before tax deductions of lesser or
equal guidelines.
Sonderegger says the pantry delivers the packages of food
to those who otherwise would not be able to visit the pantry.
Often, I take them some supplies from the food pantry, in
addition to the commodity boxes, Sonderegger said. Its a
good way to get help to those who need it, and I think its really opened some doors.
To register for the program, contact Ann Sonderegger at

Briggs receives recognition

of 20 years on school board
Cornell School District School Board member Lyle Briggs
was recognized Jan. 22, by the Wisconsin Association of
School Boards (WASB) for serving 20 years on the Cornell
School Board. Briggs was honored onstage at the general session of the 94th State Education Convention in Milwaukee,
in front of hundreds of school board members and school district administrators from around the state.
Briggs was notified that he was to be recognized for his
school board service prior to the convention and made the
trip to Milwaukee to participate in the ceremony.
I was brought up with a couple of other school board
members who have served 30 years, so that was nice, said
Briggs. It doesnt seem like its been that long 20 years. I
just want to thank the community for their support.
WASB Executive Director John Ashley congratulated
Briggs on his outstanding commitment to public education,
and presented him with a certificate of appreciation.
I commend Lyle Briggs for his efforts to improve educational opportunities for the young people in the Cornell community, and to diligently work at ensuring an effective
governing body, said Ashley. I thank Lyle for his work on
behalf of public education in Wisconsin.
Briggs says he hopes to extend his years on the board and
is running as an incumbent at this years Cornell School

Pastors Corner
Words of inspiration for these modern times from
members of our Religious communities
By Dr. Jim Brandli
New Life Alliance Church Cornell, Wis.
Our citizenship is in heaven.
Philippians 3:20

Where are you from?

Not long ago, I went to my city hall to vote. When
I walked in, there were some friendly ladies sitting at
tables. They had lists in front of them with names on
them. If my name was on the list, I could vote. The lists
were names of registered voters. And my name was on
the list so I got to vote. I am a citizen of the town so
I am eligible to vote.
Across the street from city hall is the post office.
I walked over there to check the mail. I have a little post
office box and thats where they put my mail. I am a
citizen of the town so this is where my mail gets sent.
Where are you from? Where are you going?
Sometimes our lives are very short-sighted. Our lives
revolve around our families, our homes, our jobs and
our possessions. Now those things are important. But
this life is not all there is. Where you are from now is
not where you will be in the end. Even the gravesite
with your name on it will not be your final resting place.
Not long ago, a good friend of mine died. He was
from my town. Everyone in town knew him. He had a
big funeral. But hes not from this town anymore. Sure,
hes buried in the city cemetery. But hes not really
there. Hes living in another city now.
You know the more I think about it, this friend of
mine was not really from here. Yes, he lived here. But
this world was not his home. He was just a passn
Now hes a citizen of heaven.
But he knew that for a long time. He could say as the
Apostle Paul did, Our citizenship is in heaven. So
who does OUR refer to? Everyone? No. The only
ones who can say, OUR citizenship is in heaven, are
the children of God. Those who have repented of their
sins and believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
My friend knew he was a citizen of heaven even before he was there. And he lived his life on this earth as
though he was a citizen of heaven already.

Two Cornell students join

ranks with published poets
By Ginna Young
Move over Emily Dickinson, there are two newcomers on
the scene!
Cornell High School junior Crystal Smith and eighth
grader McKenna Marek have joined the ranks of published
poets, after they entered a Creative Communications contest
and were chosen to have their works published in an anthology of poems. They learned about the opportunity through
their English teacher, Caroline Hickethier, who received information on the contest and forwarded it to her students.
This is really new for me; I usually dont get to write poetry, said Marek.
Marek, who chose to write about the Dr. Who television
science fiction series, says the hardest thing was to stay
within the 21 line limit.
I really wanted to write so much more, said Marek. Im
fascinated by the concept of the show, the history and drama
of it.
Marek might not spend a lot of time composing poetry, but
Smith says she is just the opposite and even has her own blog
where she posts original works.
I wrote mine to be really dark, said Smith. Its about
depression, how it stays inside and you continue to go
through it every day. You think youre out, and then something pulls you back in to go through it all over again.
The girls were invited to have their poems published with
students from all over the country, with less than 50 percent
of entries accepted.
I think its a terrific honor for the students to be selected
from a nationwide contest and published, Hickethier said.
It helps to build confidence and demonstrates the importance of communication.
The anthology, available for pre-order at,
will be printed in April, and shipped in September.
Smith, who plans to double major in English and journalism, says it will boost her application to have a published
work listed and help further her education. Its been an absolutely amazing experience to show people what I write,
she said.
Marek agrees, and encourages people to be confident and
not let others hold you back.
It just proves that I have the power to do something great
and creative, and that people actually like it, said Marek.
Honestly, if you enjoy writing poetry, go for it. Get rid of
negativity and reach for the stars; you never know what you
can do and you just might make it.

school spirit t-shirts they received from PACE at Christmas. Weiss says the
class has spent time silent reading at the school forest to build excitement
of reading for enjoyment. They have also been working toward monthly popcorn parties for reading 70 minutes each week. Grandparents visited their
grandchilds classroom, and the students held interviews to see how things
were different from when their grandparents were in grade school, and
learned there were no technology toys like there are today. The second graders worked on data collecting,
and graphed how many teeth students have lost and compared it to other grades. In this class, most students have lost six teeth so far. The children also work with Nick Kotek on their community inquiry projects, seeing how certain jobs are needed in the community. The students say they look forward to putting
the information in an iPad presentation, and that they have enjoyed second grade.

Cadott Village Board

ATV Mud Bog event scheduled for approval

By Kayla Peche
Cadott holds their annual Nabor Days celebration in
Riverview Park this July 30 through Aug. 2, and an ATVorganization would like to have an ATV mud bog event, preceding the annual Firemens Mud Bog.
Prior to the Feb. 2 regular Cadott Village Board meeting,
John Bourget, Cadott resident, asked approval from the village
board to use the mud bog area for an ATV event during Fridays festivities (July 31).
Anson Albarado, village president, spoke with Bourget and
said he should get permission from the Cadott Fire Department
because they are in charge of the regular mud bog.
As far as insurance on the event goes, Bart Chapek, board
member, says Bourget should talk to the Cadott Chamber of
Commerce as well since they will cover the event.
I think its probably covered, but its another thing they
would have to ask, Chapek said at the Feb. 2 meeting.
The fire department makes that mud pit the way it is, said
Randy Kuehni, board member. So, I would say the fire department has control over the pit itself.
The board approved allowing the ATVgroup to use the villages property, pending disscusion with and permission from
the fire department and chamber of commerce.
Those two entities have to make the final call, Kuehni said.

During committee reports, a few of the board members attending the Fire and Ambulance meeting said concerns about
a water meter charge had been brought up.
The Cadott Fire Department is charged monthly from the
village for the water meter, but the department says they only
use the meter after a fire to fill up the tanks. Chapek says the
department requests not using the meter at that large capacity
because of its incompetency.
If its just sitting there and they arent really using it,
Chapek said, either we put a smaller meter on it and charge
them less or we figure something else out.
Sandy Buetow, village clerk, said the village charges the department $126 per month for the meter.
Charles Sedivy, board member, said he suggests they take
the meter out and put in a piece of straight pipe.
Whats going to happen is youre going to have a 40 below
zero night and they are going to want to fill the truck fast, he
said. Then, when you have to run it through a two inch meter,
they are going to be there for longer.
Albarado said they would have Rolly Tichy, public works
director, talk to the fire department and have a look at it to
figure out what needs to be done.
Rolly should have some insight on it, Kuehni said. He
was the fire chief.

current coach Lee Swanson, who stepped down from his position because of his job.
Carol Hakes was also approved for the archery coach position after Ryan Weed resigned because he didnt have time
to designate toward the position.
Teacher/support staff compensation was also unanimously
approved (with Eileen Sikora abstaining because a relative
works for the district). The increase for full-time teachers and
support staff was discussed at the December meeting to keep
the district competing with other schools in the area.

different areas.
No further discussion on co-oping basketball and volleyball with Lake Holcombe happened, and the board moved on
to Schleys administrative report.
The big thing, (Erica) Dietelhoff got another $10,000 for
SMART tables, said Schley. Theyre going to be in for the
younger grades.
Dietelhoff says the grants are through the Wisconsin Technology Initiative for schools, and funding goes toward
SMART technology for the classrooms.
(The technology) allows for differentiated instruction for
all students from advanced to struggling learners, and shortens lesson preparation, says Dietelhoff.
The tables are interactive with muti-touch screens for student learning activities and reading books. Two tables will
be on each floor of the elementary school for teachers and
students PreK-5.
For funding, Dietelhoff says she and the students made
videos. They are not professional, but the students did a
great job, she said.
Prior to this grant, the school also received enough funding
for 12 SMART boards, and SMART document cameras for
all of the classrooms. These have already been in play with
the district, and how they are used can be viewed at:
The technology is not needed to have a successful classroom, said Dietelhoff. But it definitely increases student

Competition fierce
for Cadott Hornets

By Kayla Peche
As they prepare for tournament time, the Cadott Hornets
Boys Basketball team played two fast-paced conference
games, finishing up with a non-conference game against
Bloomer. Brandon Mittermeyer, Cadott head coach, says
each game had its exciting moments.
Jan. 27 vs. Osseo-Fairchild (76-66 W, conference)
The Hornets started the week tied with Osseo-Fairchild (35) in the West Cloverbelt Conference, but after Jan. 27, the
Thunder were knocked down and the Hornets moved up.
The Osseo game was very fun to watch for us as a coaching staff, Mittermeyer said. I think the pace of the game really stood out as it was very fast.
The two teams went back and forth, scoring baskets with
each possession. After the first quarter, the score was tied,
25-25. Going into the second half, Cadott was up by only five
points, and the Thunder brought the game to two points for
the final frame.
Our entire team ran the floor very well, and our shooting
was good, Mittermeyer said. I think the best thing was our
management of time and shot selection in the last few minutes.
Cadott used their time wisely in the fourth quarter, gaining Bruces Conner Kopias

the lead and winning the game, 76-66.

Jan. 29 vs. Regis (53-78 L, conference)
Cadott is known for their three-pointers, but against the
Eau Claire Ramblers Jan. 29, they truly outdid themselves, drilling 13 three-pointers.
Mittermeyer says the Hornets may have lost by 25, but it was a 10 point game most of the
way, and Regis has yet to be defeated in the West Cloverbelt Conference.
We played very well
again, said Mittermeyer. I
think Regis is a very good
team. They really tightened
up defensively and put the
pressure on us.

Still in the competition for the East Lakeland Conference top spot, the Lake Holcombe Chieftains Boys team defeated Bruce
to be tied, 5-2, for second place this week.
The Chieftains trail New Auburn by three
games for first, and only five more conference games are scheduled in the regular season.
Jan. 27 vs. Bruce (55-48 W, conference)
Beginning the game with a little foul trouble, Lake Holcombe came back to defeat
Bruce, 55-48, in a Jan. 27 conference game.
Juniors Nick Seng and William Hattamer
came close to fouling out with four fouls,
but stayed clean to keep playing for the

Engel. But we were good from the line.
In the first quarter, Lake Holcombe had a
big lead, 18-6, and kept it up to halftime, 3221.
It was in the third quarter when the Red
Raiders closed the gap to a two point game.
Lake Holcombe outscored them, 12-7, in
the final frame to grab the East Lakeland
Conference victory.

Seng led the charge with 18 points, while

senior Jay Kent had 13 and sophomore Jeremiah Reedy had 11.
Jan. 30 vs. Lincoln (42-56 L, non-conference)
It was a close game for the Chieftains Jan.
30, against the Alma Center-Lincoln Hornets.
Going into the second half of the game,
Lake Holcombe was only down by five
points. A slow third quarter, scoring only
eight points, was where the Chieftains fell
behind and couldnt catch up.
In the final quarter, Lake Holcombe
scored 10 to Lincolns 16, falling 42-56, in
non-conference play.
Reedy led for the Chieftains with 18
points, while Seng added 10.
Feb. 2 vs. Gilman (45-46 L, non-conference)
The Feb. 2 game came down to the final
minutes, but the Chieftains fell just shy of a
victory over the Gilman Pirates.

Lake Holcombe kept the game close then,

Offensive trouble led to losses for the Cornell Chiefs Boys Basketball team this week
and Shawn Schoelzel, Cornell head coach,
says the Chiefs are going to continue to work
on their offensive game to be ready for tournament time.
I think that if we get a little bit more efficient on offense, we will be OK, he said.
Jan. 27 vs. Birchwood (52-62 L, conference)
Without two starters, Cortland Spletter and
Mitch Thompson (who was out with an ankle
injury) Cornell played a close game against
Birchwood Jan. 27.
We missed some easy shots at the end,
Schoelzel said. And they made their free
throws to pull away.
The Chiefs scored 38 points in the second
half, but the Bobcats secured the lead, 62-52,
for the win.
I was happy with our effort, Schoelzel
said. We just made too many mistakes in the
second half of the game to win it.
Noah Nohr, Cornell sophomore, led the
team with 23 points and 19 rebounds. Colton
Hetke, also a sophomore, was right behind
with 20 points, four of which were threepointers. Finishing up scoring for the Chiefs
was Trenton Glaus, a sophomore, with nine.
Jan. 29 vs. Boyceville (30-63 L, non-conference)
In a Jan. 29 game against Boyceville,
Schoelzel says he was very disappointed

in Cornells showing.
We were flat from start to finish, he said.
During the first half, the Chiefs suffered
from 17 turnovers, which allowed Boyceville
some easy baskets. This continued into the
last two quarters of the game with five consecutive turnovers.
Cornell was defeated in the non-conference match up, 30-63.
Spletter, junior, was back in the game with
eight points, along with Nohr scoring the
same. Glaus and sophomore Mitchell Swanson each added four to Cornells total score.
Jan. 30 vs. New Auburn (41-56 L, conference)
The second half of the game is when Cornell started to fall behind against undefeated
New Auburn in a Jan. 30 conference
We were right there until the end of the
third quarter when they (New Auburn) began
to pull away, said Schoelzel. We missed a
few shots and they made them.
After the third quarter, the Chiefs were
down, 26-35. Cornell was then outscored in
the final quarter, putting them down by 15,
losing to the Trojans, 41-56.
Nohr had another high-scoring game with
20 points.
He had a real nice second quarter with
three three-pointers, Schoelzel said.
Cornell traveled to play their rivals, Lake
Holcombe, Feb. 5, and bring it home to play
Winter, Feb. 10.

Chiefs continue work on offense

Working on the basics to move up

By Kayla Peche
The Cornell Chiefs Girls Basketball team only has four
more conference games before the regular season is over, and
sitting in the number two spot puts a huge target on their
Jan. 27 vs. Birchwood (47-28 W, conference)
Defensive pressure was the key element to the win, 47-28,
against Birchwood for the Chiefs, said Marcus Leland, Cornell head coach.
The girls played well, he said. We need to continue to
work on our defensive positioning.
The positioning cost them 23 fouls that Leland says could
have been avoided during the Jan. 27 game. We did not have
the right positioning and didnt move our feet.
This victory moved the girls to second place in the East
Lakeland Conference, only a few games away from the defending first place spot, Flambeau.
Senior Makenzie Ewings led for the Chiefs with 16 points.
Alexis Short, a sophomore, scored nine, while senior Kaitlin
Peterson had seven and Kammey Kendall, also a senior, had
Jan. 30 vs. Eau Claire Immanuel (39-57 L, non-conference)
Cornell put up a fight against the Eau Claire Immanuel
Lutheran Lancers Jan. 30, but nine three-pointers from them
slowed the Chiefs from catching up.
We executed our offense fairly well, which forced Immauel to switch their defense three different times, Leland
said. But in the end, we just did not make enough shots in
the fourth quarter.
The Chiefs were defeated by the Lancers, 39-57, in the
non-conference play.
Ewings scored 14 points for Cornell while freshman
Danielle Fasbender added nine.
Even though this adds a loss for the Chiefs, they are still
second for the East Lakeland Conference, with Winter and
Bruce following close behind.
With only four more conference games to go, the Chiefs
will have to keep up the winning momentum to end toward
the top.
Feb. 2 vs. Siren (37-42 L, non-conference)
The Cornell girls basketball team had Siren on the ropes,
but the Dragons responded with an intense fourth quarter
rally to come from behind in the Feb. 2 game.
Siren has only lost one game this season, so Leland said
he was proud of how the girls played.
We did an excellent job breaking the press and handling
their pressure, he said.
The Chiefs led for most of the second half, including entering the fourth quarter, 30-26. In the final frame, Cornell
was outscored by Siren, 16-7, leading to the five point loss,
Senior Jane Hickethier and Kendall each had 13 points for

Frustrating losses
for the Chieftains
By Kayla Peche
The Lake Holcombe Chieftains Girls Basketball team
keeps playing hard, says Jay Geist, Lake Holcombe head
coach, but its beginning to get frustrating with scoring percentages.
Not to sound bad, but its getting bad, its getting old,
Geist said. But what are you going to do? You just keep
shooting and keep going.
Jan. 27 vs. Bruce (27-46 L, conference)
Lake Holcombe couldnt hit any baskets in the first quarter of the Jan. 27 game against Bruce, and finally gained
six points before halftime, but the Red Raiders were already up by 20 points.
Starting the second half of the game, Lake Holcombe
kicked up their aggressive defense and held Bruce to only
four points.
In the final quarter, the baskets started to fall for the
Chieftains, keeping up with Bruce, 14-16, but it was too
little, too late, for Lake Holcombe, who fell, 27-46.
Sophomore Hannah Lee and junior Bailey Viegut took
charge for Lake Holcombe, scoring eight points each. Junior Jordan Geist followed with six points during the game.
Jan. 30 vs. Lincoln (37-48 L, non-conference)
The Chieftains traveled to Lincoln High School Jan. 30,
to play the Hornets in a non-conference matchup.
Falling behind in the first half of the game, 14-21, the
Chieftains used a 15 point third quarter to bring the game
Lake Holcombe brought the game to a three point difference going in the final frame of the game, but lost momentum in the final minutes when the Hornets took charge,
outscoring the Chieftains and securing the win, 48-37.
Lee was the high scorer with nine points for Lake Holcombe, followed by Geist with seven. Senior Haylee Hennekens and junior Sara Stender each added six for the
Feb. 2 vs. Gilman (28-46 L, non-conference)
Because of the Gilman Pirates man-to-man defense Feb.
2, Geist says the Chieftains struggled again to have their
shots go in.
We got into a little bit of foul trouble, Geist said.
Then, they (Gilman) hit quite a few of their free throws.
Geist says Lake Holcombe had a difficult time on second-hand shots because of Gilmans rebounds, but overall
it was a good game to watch.
The girls played well and they played hard, he said.
Its just those little diffferences.
After getting down by the double-digits, the Chieftains
couldnt close the gap, losing 28-46.
Lake Holcombe plays rival Cornell Feb. 5, at home,
while also celebrating 100 years of boys basketball. The
girls then take on Flambeau for another conference game
Feb. 10.

Improvement key
to Cadott success
By Kayla Peche
Dave Hazuga, Cadott girls basketball head coach, says he
is proud of his teams success this season not in wins, but
in how far they have come.
Some of the girls are starting to do things they werent
doing earlier in the year, Hazuga said. That improvement
is the key to us having success.
Jan. 27 vs. Osseo-Fairchild (37-52 L, conference)
To start out the West Cloverbelt conference games this
week, the Cadott girls basketball team took on OsseoFairchild Jan. 27.
The Thunder took charge of the game quickly and didnt
give in. The Hornets fell behind early, 10-23, after the first
quarter, leading to the loss, 37-52, against Osseo-Fairchild.
Junior Elizabeth Kyes and senior Leah Pilgrim each scored
11 points for Cadott. Charlene Holte, a junior, contributed
seven points to the Hornets final score.
Jan. 30 vs. Altoona
(29-43 L, conference)
Cadott had a strong conference challenger Jan. 30,
in a game against the Altoona Railroaders.
Altoonas game was
very competitive, Hazuga
said. There was good defense by both teams.
The Hornets were
outscored in the first quarter, 4-12, but followed
with a powerful second
quarter to be within four
They had to work hard
the whole game, Hazuga
says of his teams ambition. And they did.
Despite Cadotts effort,
in the second half of the
game Altoona took the
lead and held on, defeating
the Hornets, 43-29.

One tournament left for Cadott Hornets after 57-16 win

By Monique Westaby
It was a short but productive week for the Cadott Hornets
Wrestling team, as they hosted Osseo-Fairchild/Altoona/Augusta their only meet of the week.
Only two forfeits and one major decision gave points to

the Thunder, and head coach Josh Spaeth says the major decision loss to senior Blake Borntrager was still a good match.
Blake moved up a weight class and wrestled a great
match, said Spaeth. He may have lost, but he never quit.
Borntrager earned best effort for the Jan. 29 meet, and fell
to Jeffrey Breaker by a 3-11 major decision.
While 18 of the 57 points for the Hornets came from forfeits, the rest came from the five falls by Ethan Haider,
Mitchell Hazard, Brandon Pederson, Tyler Gillett and Wyatt
Cote; one technical fall by Austin Najbrt; and a 19-6 major
decision from Dominick Grimm.
Grimm was also given best takedown, and Pederson earned
fast pin for his 32 second fall over Andrew Fenner, gaining 6
points toward the 57-16 winning meet for the Hornets.
The Jr. high team also placed well at the home meet, earning an 87-18 win against Osseo-Fairchild/Augusta/Fall
Brady Spaeth was awarded fastest pin with 21 seconds, and
Jene Hudack earned best takedown against his Thunder opponent. James Pfeiffer took the best effort award, and coach
Spaeth says Pfeiffer wrestled three great matches.
He always worked for the pin and got three pins for the
team, said coach Spaeth.
With only one tournament left, Saturday, Feb. 7, regional

Conference match results in win for Wolfpack

By Kayla Peche
The end of the regular season is fast approaching for the
Cornell-Lake Holcombe-Gilman Wolfpack Wrestling team.
They played their final home meet against Flambeau Jan. 29,
then fought some tough competition during a quad tournament in Black River Falls.
Jan. 29 vs. Flambeau (33-24 W, conference)
In a Jan. 29 Lakeland Conference battle, the Wolfpack
wrestling team brought down the Flambeau Falcons.
Greg Sonnentag, Wolfpack head coach, says it was a tough
match, especially with senior Eric Nedland out sick and sophomore Peyton Bowe out with an injury.
Both should be wrestling next weekend, Sonnentag said.
At 138 pounds, Spencer Gibson, a senior, won his match
by a fall over Flambeaus Brandon Wilson to add points for
the Wolfpack. Sophomores Matt Kostka and Takoda Lee also
won by a fall over their opponents.
Micah Raatz, sophomore, defeated his opponent, Falcon
Shannon Fye, by an 8-4 decision in the 160 pound class.
Sophomore Jake Hillebrand and freshman Zach Person
each received forfeit wins in their weight classes.
Cornell-Lake Holcombe-Gilman was even with Flambeau
in forfeits, but also took some losses with senior Dusty
Boehm and freshman Paul Nedland losing their matches by

play begins the following weekend on Valentines Day, Feb.

14. The Hornets are ranked fourth in the Cloverbelt Conference.

With the Wolfpack victories, the team held their lead, winning, 33-24, over Flambeau.
Jan. 30 vs. Black River Falls Quad Tournament
The Wolfpack traveled to Black River Falls for a tournament, taking on Tri-County, Regis and Black River Falls.
The team came into the tournament strong with a victory
over Tri-County, 30-19.
Sonnentag says the lineups against Regis and Black River
Falls were very close matches, but Cornell-Lake Holcombe-Gilman lost to Regis, 30-33, and Black River Falls,
There were a few swing matches that could have gone either way, Sonnentag said. We were also down three
wrestlers for the dual meet, including varsity starters Peyton
Bowe and Eric Nedland.
With new team member Manuel Granado, a sophomore,
ineligible, and Bowe and Nedland still gone, the Wolfpack
had a few more matches for wrestlers who missed out early
in the season. One of which was Kostka, whose first match
back was the Jan. 29 meet against Flambeau.
He is 4-0 since his return, Sonnentag said. Those were
very valuable matches for that young man.
With the end of the regular season, the Wolfpack travels to
Cameron Feb. 7, for a Lakeland Conference tournament. Regionals are set for Feb. 14, at Ellsworth High School.

Cadott - Cont. from Page 11

Despite high three-pointers and tight defense, the Hornets
lost to Eau Claire, 53-78.
Michael led Cadott with 15 points on five three-pointers.
McChesney scored 13 points and made four three-pointers
while Kyes added 12 points.
Ithink things are coming together well right now, said
Mittermeyer. We hope to continue to improve to get ready
for the tournament.
Feb. 2 vs. Bloomer (46-60 L, non-conference)
The Hornets began their Feb. 2 game in a zone defense,
but after Bloomer knocked down 21 points early in the first
quarter, the Hornets changed to a man-to-man, which led to
their seven point run. The Blackhawks quickly responded
with an 11 point run of their own, which kept them in the lead
by double digits.
The game was a struggle, Mittermeyer said. Bloomer
shot the ball very well due to our lack of physicality on defense.
Mittermeyer says the Hornets took a stand and wait approach against Bloomer, which was ineffective against powerful shooting skills. Unable to get closer than seven points
the rest of the game, Cadott fell to Bloomer, 46-60, in the
non-conference match up.
We couldnt quite get over the hump, Mittermeyer said.
We just have to keep getting better.
Michael scored 11 points for the Hornets, drilling three of
his teams six three-pointers. Sedlacek added 10 and McChesney added nine points for the game.
Cadott travels to Altoona Feb. 6, for a West Cloverbelt
Conference game, then brings it to Hornet territory Feb. 12,
against McDonell.

Funds for new uniforms come from local support

By Kayla Peche
Doing a little paid off a lot for the Lake Holcombe boys
basketball team as they raised enough funding to buy new
uniforms and practice jerseys.
The outstanding support our close knit community has
shown our program makes me extremely proud to be a member of it, said Dave Engel, Lake Holcombe boys basketball
head coach. I would like to express my gratitude to our players and assistant coaches for all their hard work and fundraising. Also, to our parents and most of all, our community for
their unwavering support.
Engel says the team was in need of uniforms after having
the same ones since 2003, and they were starting to look a
bit old.
Unlike most programs, we were not able to allocate any
of our yearly budget to uniforms, Engel said, leaving it
rather to fundraising and the generosity of our community.
Carrie Ably, Holcombe resident, helped Engel find donators and organize events the boys team could contribute toward to find funding.
Icouldnt have done it without her, Engel said.
The team helped during the summer with Swinging Fore a
Cause, put on by the Lake Holcombe Golfers committee.
Sarah Sauerwein, Lake Holcombe Golfers coordinator,
says the annual event provides scholarships, field trips, camp
opportunities, educational events, sports equipment and uniforms, school supplies and much more to the Lake Holcombe
students. She said it was a no brainer when Engel asked to
participate during the event.
It was only fitting that, after the team showed up to help
with some physical labor, we presented our first check of the
new season to him (Engel)at the event, Sauerwein said. I
think he was surprised and very pleased to receive $1,000 for
help in purchasing their new uniforms.
Along with this event, the basketball team helped the Lake
Holcombe Lions Club with their ice fishing contest by selling
tickets and moving around equipment. Also, the Holcombe

Charlie Ably) for the clubs $1,000 contribution to
the team for new jerseys.

Alumni Association holds an annual Alumni Basketball Tournament, where Engel says the boys will also fundraise. The
tournament is set for Feb. 14 and 15 this year.
It is a nice interaction with the community, Engel said
of the different events the team participated in.
The Lake Holcombe Lions Club donated $1,000 toward
the new uniforms, while Mrs. and Dr. Tom Tozer not only
donated $300, but Engel said also donated time with medical
and basketball guidance throughout the year. Sue Sutor, who
in the memory of former American Basketball Association
players and New Jersey basketball legends George Sutor Sr.
and George Sutor Jr., donated $1,000.
With all of the donations, the team was able to purchase
the new uniforms and practice jerseys for for the 2014-15
Thanks to all who have helped carry on this great tradition
of Holcombe basketball, said Engel.

Its a Girls Hunting

By: Monique Westaby
Its a bird, its a plane,
its a meerkat?
We were well into coon season and a friend of ours decided to join us for the evening. He
brought a friend, and the four of us hopped in the Chevy and
headed for a creek bottom.
It was prime coon hunting and the stars were out. We were
still looking to find the biggest coon for our Big Coon Competition wed entered, and the last few runs had produced
some good video, but not much for coon size.
A friend of ours was leading the state-wide contest, and although we couldnt hunt every weeknight like he could, we
knew we had to hunt on the weekends every chance we could.
The creek runs along the edge of a cornfield, and the dogs
were more than willing to follow the corn edge, down the trail
and into the water. We didnt need the GPS to know where
their splish-splosh feet were, and in just a few minutes Blaze,
our Walker, sounded treed.
Chaos was several hundred yards away and showed little
interest in the tree Blaze had determined was the one. Since
Cordellia mostly goes with the flow, she put her front paws
on the bark next to Blaze and let out her own treeing howl.
The mud and water got deep quick, so I stayed on the trailside and let Scott, my husband, cross with his high waders.
Blaze, he said to the mostly white dog, I dont think
theres anything up there.
We lit up the tree tops and only stars glittered back at us.
Scott told Blaze nothing was up there, and several more minutes of searching still left us empty-handed.
Scott finally convinced Blaze to head out with her sister,
and Cordellia followed, ears bouncing and feet sploshing. The
three produced nothing so we caught them up and tried another run which again put nothing up a tree.
Maybe we got all the coon last weekend, someone joked.
I wouldnt doubt it, came a response.
The dogs barked all the way to the next drop site, and we
let them out in the freshly cleared field. It took awhile, but
eventually the three showed treed.
We started walking toward them and they moved about 100
yards. We stopped, and they headed back to the tree. About
half way there, they did it again.
We knew something was up, so we followed the GPS to the
squiggles of where
they had been.
Afraid we were
going to be fooled
again, we looked at
every branch.
An old stand was
bolted at the top of
some tree spikes, so
Scott carefully made
his way up the spikes
to get a better look.
He shouted back to
us that he thought it
was a cat. I found it

looked too skinny.
I think its a weasel or something, I said.
Its bigger than a weasel, said Scott from up the tree.
Maybe its a fisher.
No, its too small for a fisher, I said. And its not dark
enough. I think its ameerkat.
Meerkats dont live in Wisconsin, Scott said with a, dont
be ridiculous, tone.
Nope, definitely a meerkat, I said, laughing. But really,
I think its something with an M name.
We determined it definitely wasnt a coon so we left it alone,
led up the dogs, and headed back to the truck. I googled weasel
family and a martin popped up on my screen.
Thats what it was! I said, showing everyone in the truck
my find. They agreed, and although it wasnt a meerkat, I was
still right that its name started with an M.
It had gotten late, and we decided to call it a night. We may
have gotten skunked, or should I say, martined, but we still
had a fun story to tell. On to the next night.

DNR Outdoor Report

Snowmobile trails remain open in about a dozen northern
counties and cross-country ski trails are in very good condition.
Ice thickness on most lakes across the northwoods varies
from 12 to 16 inches. Snows have added 2 to 3 inches on top
of the 6 inches that was already on the ice, making ice travel
more difficult.
For fishing action, it seems mid-winter doldrums have set
in and success has tapered off for most species in the north.
Walleye action could be considered fair for this time and
most anglers experience just enough action to keep them interested. Panfish action has been inconsistent and anglers
have moved around searching for active fish.
With warmer weather there have been wildlife sightings
of porcupines in trees, otters out and coyotes active. The majority of white-tailed bucks have lost their antlers.
Squirrel season has closed, but rabbit hunting remains open
through Feb. 28.
Statewide Birding Report
Winter bird patterns have set in, though northbound
spring movement of some species may only be weeks

Snowy owls remain in high numbers and short-eared owls
have also put in good showings.
Pine siskins, purple finches and common redpolls continue
to dominate the landbird scene. Tree sparrows, dark-eyed
juncos, cardinals, black-capped chickadees, woodpeckers,
horned larks, white-breasted nuthatches, blue jays, American
goldfinches and tufted titmice are also active.
Small numbers of evening and pine grosbeaks, and red
crossbills are reported in the far north, as well as more than
300 Bohemian waxwings in northern Bayfield County.
Small numbers of waterfowl can be found wherever open
water remains. Diving ducks such as common goldeneye and
common mergansers, dabblers including mallards, American
black duck and Canada goose are most numerous.
Trumpeter swans have overwintered at Hudson and tundra
swans are at McFarland.
The rarest find is no doubt the common eider seen in Superior, Douglas County. The sea duck is very rarely found in
the interior United States and marks only the second known
to have frequented Wisconsin waters since 1968.

An Outdoorsmans Journal By Mark Walters

Bloomers Northland Houndsmen
Hello friends,
This week and next I will write to you about the excellent experiences I had while trying to fill my bobcat
tag, under the guidance of an incredible bunch of guys
and gals who call themselves The Northland Houndsmen.
This group began back in the late 50s, when there
were not many deer in the area, or coyote, or GPS. They
used to load their hounds in the trunks of their cars and
chase fox.
The unofficial leaders of this group are Don and Dale
Naset, and Robby Turner. Several of the gangs members
are Mark Tomally Tomasovich, Mitch Poier, Mark
Pierce, Sonny Marek, Rolly Naset and Diane Mitchell (I
am sure I have missed several.)
Tuesday, Jan. 20 High 6, Low -25
I am basing out of Flaters Resort, which is possibly
the coolest place on earth, and is located where the
Chippewa and Flambeau Rivers meet.
This morning, long before daylight, my connection to
this group, Tomally, picked me up and we began our job
which, like the four other trucks working the area, was
to find a fresh bobcat track.
Sounds simple. Well, it is not. We are working big
country in Rusk and Chippewa Counties, and each driver
covers about 15 to 25 miles of remote roads. Most of the
time your window is down or you are getting out of the
truck and trying to figure out if a track is made by a
fisher, coyote, fox or bobcat.
Generally you see deer tracks. Sometimes they are
wolf or coyote, but the most common thing to remember
is when a deer or coyote lifts their feet, there is a slight
drag mark between tracks. Bobcat do not drag their feet.
Usually, these guys are hunting coyote and, as each
member of the gang works their stretch of road, they talk
on marine band radios. They relay their info and a plan
is made on when to meet, and which hounds to put on
the coyote that will be
For myself, I was actually being honored by a
bunch of guys who did not
even know me. Yesterday

and today we were ignoring coyote and it was bobcat or

nothing. I had the only cat/short tail tag and running a
cat was the only goal.
Two days of frigid temps kept us from seeing a single
cat track.
Wednesday, Jan. 21 High 34, Low 17
Today was the second day of my second trip to hunt
In the time between hunts we had to cancel twice.
Once because of frigid temps and blowing snow that covers all tracks. The other time because the only snow on
the ground was hard pack that did not make a track, and
there was not much of it.
As usual, I am riding shotgun with Tomally in his 2003
Chevy Avalanche. The Avalanche is a beast that does not
get stuck, even though all of Tomallys buddies want him
to get stuck so they can give him a hard time.
There are five trucks on this hunt and everyone knows
I have to go home today. Both today and yesterday it
snowed after midnight, so finding cat tracks is not at all
There are hounds in the back of these trucks that go by
the names of Ellwood, a redbone; Conway, a plott; and
Sailor, a walker that I really want to see hunt.
Each dog is fitted with a GPS collar and the hunters
have hand held GPS in their trucks that they can track
the hounds once they are on the hunt. The GPS is crucial
in keeping track of the dogs, which helps to keep them
off private land, and lets hunters know if they are near a
road, helping avoid catastrophe with car/hound collisions.
The bobcat season is down to 10 days.
I cannot return for five, and the clock is ticking.
The weather forecast is perfect for cat to move tonight.
After a big day of hunting I have to go home and be a
dad, a KAMO president and feed cattle. I get home at
8:30 p.m.
The game is on, to heck
with the five day wait.
I am back at Flaters the
next morning; I have a cat
tag to fill!

it down the Brunet hill,

hill unharmed, then
donned another sled to
try again.

Apps to keep inventories for insurance

While no one wants to dwell on the negative,
disasters such as fires, floods, tornadoes and other
severe storms do occur in Wisconsin. The best defense is to be prepared, which means creating a
home inventory to help with reimbursement for

any lost possessions.

When you dont have a home inventory and try
to reconstruct what you owned, it can be quite a
challenge, said Ron Von Haden, executive vice
president of the Professional Insurance Agents of
Wisconsin. Its very possible to overlook or forget things, so you may get
less of a settlement than if you had an
up-to-date inventory.
The following apps have been created to help ease the stress of creating
Know Your Stuff Home Inventory This app is from the Insurance
Information Institute and backs up data
to The Cloud, for ensured access if disaster strikes. The program is available
for desktop, but also has an app for
iPhone and Android. Online inventory
can be modified or added, and photos
can be included directly from a phone.
The program and app are free at
MyStuff2 Lite Everything from
electronics and appliances to jewelry
and movie collections can be tracked
with this iPhone only app. Barcode
scanning and Amazon integration is in-

cluded, but the free version is limited to 15 items.

The Pro version, which has no limit, is available
for purchase on iTunes.
NM Home Inventory This software captures photos, description and receipts, and can be
used in conjunction with a desktop version. This
free app is for Android only and is available in the
app store.
Encircle Homeowners, landlords and property managers can inventory all properties with
Encircle using a smartphone, tablet or the web.
This app is free and can be found online at, and in app stores.
Another good tip is to check with your local,
independent, professional insurance agent before
you start your inventory. said Von Haden. Your
agent can tell you whether your insurance company has any specific reimbursement requirements
and whether they offer an app you can use.
Your agent can also advise you about expensive or rare items such as your grandmothers diamond engagement ring, pricey electronics, a
piece of artwork or collectible that may exceed the
limits of standard homeowners or renters insurance. To ensure this property is protected, you may
need extra coverage, called a rider, that covers the
true replacement value of these items.
