From Stoughton to stand-up


SHS grad delivers laughter in comedy business

Unified Newspaper Group

At the University of Minnesota, Natasha Pearl Hansen majored in pre-med,


but ended up turning from
health to humor quicker
than tapping the funny
bone.
During a college theater
class, the Stoughton native
often delivered spontaneous mockery of some pretentious classmates. That
prompted an astute professor, with an eye for comedy,

to offer advice: You need


to look into doing improv.
Hansen was puzzled. She
asked, Whats improv?
Now, a decade after leaving college, Hansen, 31,
still performs as a stand-up
comic and works developing TV shows and humorous short films. Appearing at the Comedy Club on
State in Madison March
18 and 19, Hansen gave a

oddities in Los Angeles, her


home for the past six years.
Learning about the quickwit improv comedy style
prompted Hansen to leave
Minnesota for Chicago
and to attend classes at the
comedy mecca Second
City. She also performed
in countless Second City
shows from 2006 to 2010.
After Chicago, she was
ready for new challenges:
moving to Los Angeles,
shifting into stand-up comedy and developing sitcoms.
I had done the best
thing, in terms of comedy,
in Chicago, Hansen said.
Theres a wide-eyed Midwestern sensibility to her
work, including a sitcom
pitch to NBC that mocks
West Coast life coaches,
bumbling in their attempts
to help others organize their
lives.
That ability to step back
and find humor in quirky
details came from storytelling Stoughton-area family
and friends, she said.
And when stepping into
stand-up comedy, Hansen
wasnt fazed. Improv gave
her armor against barbs.

she said. Because of my
improv background, Ill try
a different way if a crowd
doesnt respond. Its fun.
Its exciting. Its a challenge.
Hansen spent time recently pitching jokes to Fox TV
producers for a new show.
She has a deal with NBC
that gives the network first
rights to programs she produces. That includes the
life coaches sitcom and
another comedy about personal assistants to celebrities.

Stoughton Area School District

City of Stoughton

Proposed budget: Cuts offset


addition of 11 permanent positions

Committee recommends
approval of KPW park plan

With growing budget deficits still a year or so away,


recommended enrollmentdriven cuts to Stoughton
Area School District staffing
costs were modest Monday
night.
How long that can continue, however, is a larger
question, as decisions will
undoubtedly be more difficult than the proposed
$72,500 reduction in staffing costs for next year.
Those were the numbers
presented to school board
members Monday night by
district superintendent Tim
Onsager, who recommended
a handful of additions and
subtractions to staff for the
2015-16 school year that
starts July 1.
Board president Liz Menzer said the board will discuss the recommendations at
its next meeting, April 4.
A total of 11.21 full-time
additions, including current
temporary positions already
paid for in the budget, would
cost the district $327,000,
but it would be more than
negated by a proposed 6.25
full-time subtractions, cutting $399,500 in costs.
If Onsagers repeated
emphasis did not make it
plain enough, the title of the
document given to board
members Enrollment
Driven Staffing Recommendations made it clear the
districts declining enrollment is driving the decision
making.
Despite the modest
request for cutting costs next
year, Onsager was frank
about the budget difficulties that lie ahead for the
district and huge enrollment decline expected in
a few years at Stoughton
High School mantras he
is increasingly taking up as
those times draw closer.
Were facing over a
million-dollar budget deficit looming in our future,
and we cannot keep reducing just in the buildings,
and reducing positions that
affect our students, he said.

Onsager recommended

at Sandhill Elementary in
August due to increased

full-time district-wide English as a Second Language
teacher, citing an increase
of 24 ESL students this year,
not including more than a
dozen district 4K students
who would next year be in

Onsager said a 4K student

The Parks and Recreation Committee last week


voted to recommend the
city accept the dedication
of the land and general
layout of a park in the second phase of the Kettle
Park West development.
On a 3-1 vote, the committee recommended that
the Planning Commission
accept 16.7 acres of park
land for Phase 2.
Ald. Regina Hirsch cast
the only vote against the
motion,
while Paul
Lawrence,
Tom Selsor
and Sonny
Swangstu voted in
favor.
T h e Hirsch
d e v e l oper has
increased the allocation of
land from about 10 to 16.7
acres, most of which will
be in a large area dedicated for the new park.
The developer added a
wooded lot and proposed
trail on the southwest corner of the park area when
he increased the amount
of land hes dedicating to
the city.
Parks and recreation
director Tom Lynch said
the land and general layout for the park seems to
meet what we were looking for and our needs for
the Parks and Open Space
study. This gives us a
large sports field.

The developers plan


includes the park with
residential homes on two
sides and about 600 feet of
access to a street, as well
as a full-sized soccer field
with room for three junior
fields.
Alds. Tom Majewski
and Hirsch had said they
were not satisfied with
the proposed park during a Planning Commission meeting earlier this
month. They didnt like
having homes along two
sides of the park.
But other than Hirsch,
alders on the Parks and
Rec committee felt the
developers general layout
and plan for the park met
the citys wants and needs.
Lynch said the city has
not developed a new park
since 2000, and he added
the city has about five
parks that are similar to
what the developer has
proposed for Phase 2.
Virgin Lake Park has
homes on three sides, he
said. We can still change
whats in the park and
where the trails are put. I
dont think we lose in any
way with this.
Lynch said he doesnt
disagree with alders who
have a different vision for
the park, but I shouldnt
be pushing hard for something that I dont think is
absolutely necessary.
He noted the Planning
Commission and Common
Council will have the final
say in the development
of the park. The commissions next meeting is
Monday, April 11.
The city has roughly
$323,000 from so-called
impact fees for developing parks and trails in the
project.

Stoughton Opera House

Rare a cappella ensemble to make Opera House debut


Bill Livick

If you go

Unified Newspaper Group

Cantus, a nine-member male vocal a


cappella ensemble based in Minneapolis,
makes its debut at the Opera House Saturday with a wide-ranging repertoire of
songs.
The group is self-produced, with programming and musical direction coming
from within the ensemble itself.
Cantus is known for its moving, innovative concerts that often tie together works
of diverse genres to explore a selected
theme. The ensembles repertoire includes
classical music, orchestral-vocal, folk
music, art song, popular songs, spirituals
and newly commissioned works.
Cantus maintains a schedule of around
70 live concert performances each year in
the United States and abroad. It is also an
active proponent of music education and
will perform Saturday with the Stoughton
High School Concert Choir.
Cantus began as a student-run organization at St. Olaf College in 1995. After
a successful northeast tour in the summer
of 1998, the ensemble transitioned into
a professional group and nonprofit organization by 1999. The Washington Post
has hailed Cantus music as having both
exalting finesse and expressive power,
and refers to the spontaneous grace of its
music.
Last week the Courier Hub spoke in a
telephone interview with baritone Matthew
Tintes, a member of Cantus since 2009, about how
the ensemble functions
without a conductor or
artistic director.

Q&

Hub: I read that every


piece Cantus does has nine
fingerprints on it. Is that

accurate?
Tintes: Yes, Cantus operates as a chamber ensemble, which differs from a typical
choral group in that we dont have a conductor or an artistic director.

Who: Cantus, a nine-member all-male


vocal ensemble

also be able to say how the artistic product
unfolds is really unique and pretty awesome.
Also, we like to operate by consensus. If we can all agree on something
thats great. And in fact a lot of times,
especially when it comes to musical
decisions, the correct decision sort of
makes itself obvious once its presented, and so we just go forward with that.

Cantus, a nine member vocal chamber ensemble from Minneapolis, is scheduled to perform at the
Stoughton Opera House on Saturday, April 2.

All nine of us are involved in all of those


decisions. The easiest way to describe how
logistically we do what we do is that very
song that we sing is assigned to a singer in
the ensemble to be the producer of that song.
That singer does all of the pre-work that a
normal conductor would do for a song. He
researches how they want it to sound, tempos, dynamics, any language pronunciation
research that needs to happen if its in a foreign language, and any other research that
would need to go into producing a piece.
And then the producer in the first rehearsal or so with the piece kind of teaches the
ensemble how they envision the song going.

Once we have it up on its feet, then everybody else begins to chime in with their suggestions about changing things or reinforcing ideas the producer brought up, maybe
sometimes expanding on them.
And so by the time a piece reaches the
stage, everybody in the ensemble really has
had some kind of a say in what the final
product would be.
One of the reasons its so much fun to be
able to participate in that process is it really
is a unique thing. Usually there is an artistic director or a conductor making all those
decisions.
So to be a singer in the ensemble but

Hub: How do you select the music?


Tintes: We like to tell a story with our
programs, and so the first thing that we
decide on is what our narrative thrust for the
program is going to be. For this year, the title
of our program is The Four Loves, and we
decided that Cantus had never really done
any loves song programs, and so we thought
that would be interesting, but what could we
do to make it more interesting than just, you
know, love songs? Whats a way into that?
As we were looking at the concept of love
and doing some research, we came upon the
Greek idea of the four loves: love for family, friends, romantic love and a sort of all
encompassing love, which also can be seen
as spiritual love.
We thought that was a really interesting
way to break down such a complicated emotion, because just on its surface, if you think
of love songs you think romantic love songs.
But really love has so many different aspects
in our lives, and theyre not all positive or all
negative. Using the framework of the four
Greek loves to break that down was very
interesting to us.

Singer-songwriter Aoife ODonovan returns to the


Opera House tonight with her trio and on the strength
of her sophomore album, In the Magic Hour.
The album includes nine original songs and one traditional folk tune featuring the singers silky vocals
mixed with gauzy sounds of splashing cymbals, airy
harmonies and the leisurely baritone musings
of an electric guitar.
ODonovan described
the magic hour as the
time in the summers

That time of day
was the most magical
for me as a child because it was after dinner and
nighttime, but we were allowed to stay up and sort
of run around the beach and just be wild children,
she explained in a telephone interview from her
home in Florida.
It was the longing for that time the nostalgia
for that hour that brought a lot of these songs out.
ODonovan said she was also thinking of her late
grandfather, who died in 2013, as she was writing
the songs for the new album.
The whole circle of life was heavy on my mind,
she said.
The music on the collection is restrained and
mostly stripped down to acoustic instruments and
ODonovans honeyed voice.
ODonovan grew up in a musical family and as a
child spent many summers in Ireland visiting family, where music was always in the mix. She graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music
in 2003 and began making a name for herself as lead
singer of the Boston-based progressive string band
Crooked Still around the same time.
She was a featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo
Sessions, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo

$3,000 award are honored for their superior ability to inspire a love of learning
in their students, their ability to motivate Koenecke
others, and their leadership and service
within and outside the classroom.
Recipients are selected by a statewide
committee composed of civic leaders and
representatives of education-related associations and the programs co-sponsors:
The Wisconsin Newspaper Association
Foundation, Wisconsin Department of
Public Instruction, Wisconsin Council

Association of Wisconsin School Administrators.
District superintendent Tim Onsager said the educators awards are well-deserved.

of these students, teachers, and principals and look
forward to the great contributions they will make in the
future.

Dane County

County sues towns association


Scott Girard
Unified Newspaper Group

Dane County is suing the local


towns association over the results
of a recently approved state law that
could change how towns zone their
land.
In February, the state legislature
passed a law supported by the Dane
County Towns Association (DCTA)
that would allow towns to opt out of
county zoning regulations in 2017.
Towns that opted out would create a
set of ordinances to use in place of
the countys.
The suit is over whether or not
towns that opt out would receive any
money from the countys tax revenue
to help pay for the planning process.

The DCTA told towns while the


law was being debated that it would
receive part of the countys tax revenue to cover its expenses for planning and zoning. The county, though,
disputes that there would be any tax
shift.
If a town voluntarily elects to
withdraw from county zoning, the
county is not transferring responsibility for providing a service, a
memo from a lawyer for the county
earlier this month read. Therefore,
it is my opinion that no levy shift
will occur if a town withdraws from
county zoning.
The suit asks for a declaratory
judgment from the circuit court on
the levy shift. Even if money shifted
to towns, some local town officials
questioned if it would be enough to
cover planning and zoning on their
own.
Mark Hazelbaker, who represents

DCTA in the lawsuit, told the Hub


the countys decision to sue is
unfortunate and without merit.
Its a poor way to show an interest in cooperation, Hazelbaker said.
In the suit, the county said a decision is needed before the county
budgeting process begins for 2017.
Hazelbaker noted that although
towns will decide whether theyre
opting out in 2017, the earliest it
would affect any potential budget
would be 2018.
Some town officials said the
countys rules are too favorable for
cities and villages, which can exercise extraterritorial jurisdiction
on a towns land. County officials
have maintained they simply want
to ensure the rural character of the
county is preserved.
Online court records show a scheduling conference is scheduled for
May 24.

Chamber: Recruitment beginning immediately for position


Continued from page 1
Housner said leading the chamber
was a good experience, and that
its been nice to be part of the community. She said the chamber is
doing a good job at meeting its mission of promoting local business and
marketing the community.

What Ive been trying to do at the


chamber is to partner with the city,
with Mayor Olson and the school
district superintendent Dr. Onsager,
to get a greater focus on marketing
the city, she said. Theres always
been a strong focus but we were trying partner to get an even greater
focus.

The chambers Board of Directors


is going to start recruiting for a new
director immediately, Housner said,
beginning with an ad in the Hub this
week. The executive committee of
the Board of Directors or members of
the board will be part of the resume
review and interview process.

If you want to live and be well, then you should be generous, calm,
and virtuous. Being generous can be difficult for those of us who have
the virtues of the squirrel, storing up food for the winter by burying our acorns. Its good to save some of what we earn, but its also
important to be generous with what we have. It can be difficult to be
calm in the noisy, jangling disarray of modern life. We live in a technological pandemonium of buzzers and bells that seem designed to
sabotage our equanimity. There are many ways to cultivate calmness,
from prayer and meditation, to time management and a firm resolve
to practice patience. And while we have to cultivate and practice that
inner quietude of spirit in order to be truly calm, it really does help to
quiet the outer bells and whistles. Turn off the television and silence
the cell phone, and you will begin to understand why silence is
golden. Finally, the surest and most direct route to living well and
truly being well is by living virtuously. Only those who are kind, and
generous, and genuinely trying to be the best that they can be are
truly living well.

A career of service, sacrifice


Former Hanoi Hilton POW was honored last fall

Scott De Laruelle

You can never truly feel


how great this country is
until you have missed it.
Thats how Don Heiliger
summed up spending six
years of his life as a prisoner
of war in North Vietnams
infamous Hanoi Hilton.
Before that, he served his
country by shouldering the
awesome burden of piloting
a nucleararmed jet.
Heiliger,
a longtime
Stoughton
area resident
died March
23 at age
79, but not Heiliger, during his
b e f o r e h e active service days
was recognized for a career of notable
service and great personal
sacrifice.
Flags around the state
flew at half-staff Monday
in his honor by decree of
Gov. Scott Walker, who
helped recognize him Nov.
2 at Don Heiliger Day at
Stoughton VFW Post 328.
The event was a part of a
Wisconsin Department of
Veterans Affairs initiative to
honor Vietnam veterans during the 50th anniversary of
the war.
Aside from his time spent
in service, the Madison-born
Heiliger spent his whole
life in Dane County. He
attended Air Force Reserve
Officers Training Corps at
UW-Madison, finishing at
the top of his class as both
a navigator and pilot and,
upon earning his wings
in 1965, was assigned to
Yokoto Air Base, Japan.
There, he learned to harness the supersonic power
of the F-105 Thunderchief, a
fighter-bomber designed to
deliver nuclear weapons to
targets either in North Korea
or southern Russia.
Every other week for several years, Heiliger would
fly from Japan to U.S. bases
in South Korea, sitting on
nuke waiting for a call he
prayed hed never get.
Once you took off, you
were on your way, you
couldnt come back, Heiliger told the Hub in November. If we dropped em,
there probably wouldnt be a
place to come back. It was a
one-way mission.

File photo by Scott De Laruelle

Don Heiliger shows a photo of his F-105 Thunderchief in action in


the book The MiG Killers at his home on Lake Kegonsa in 2015.

By late 1966, Heiligers


nuclear watch duty was broken up by pressing matters
in nearby Vietnam, where
pilots were needed. Flying
from a base in Thailand so
far away he required in-air
refueling, Heiligers luck
ran out on his 44th mission
May 15, 1967 when he
and a co-pilot were flying
alone to bomb railroad yards
northeast of Hanoi. As they
began their bombing run,
their F-105 was struck by
something fired from the
ground.
Within a day, the aviators
joined hundreds of captured
U.S. service members in
the so-called Hanoi Hilton complex with other
P.O.W.s, including future
U.S. senator and presidential candidate John McCain,
who Heiliger didnt see
much. The men were
released on Feb. 18, 1973,
and Heiliger said when they
got the news, they tried to
not show any emotions to
their captors.
(It was), Oh, good,
were going home, and then
we walked back into our
rooms, Heiliger said. We
tried to (take it in stride). We
didnt want to show em.
Back in the U.S., Heiliger
continued to serve, both
inside the military and out.
He earned a masters degree
in Latin American studies
and in 1975, started training for assignments in South
America as an attache.
He was later appointed to
the Madison Area Technical College Board of Trustees and Wisconsin Board
of Veterans Affairs and was

elected to serve 12 years on


the Dane County Board of
Supervisors and also as clerk
of the Town of Dunkirk.
Heiliger was also a member
of Stoughton Rotary, American Legion Post No. 59 and
VFW Post No. 328.
Funeral services were
held at Holy Cross Lutheran
Church in Madison on Monday, followed by burial with
military honors at Roselawn
Memorial Park.
VFW Post 328 Commander Pat Nowlin told the
Hub on Tuesday that Heiliger was honored by the
Air Force at the burial with
a missing man formation
flyover of fighter jets from
Madisons Truax Field.
Nowlin said he was proud
to say I was his friend.
I got to know him quite
well, and it was an honor
knowing him, because I
kind of knew who he was
for a long time, Nowlin
said. He didnt talk about

honor him last November
for his bravery and devotion to our country.
The sacrifices Colonel Heiliger endured to
ensure freedom for all
in the United States will
certainly never be forgotten.
Scocos said Heiligers
legacy represents the
very best of America in
the toughest of personal
times.
Even while a prisoner
of war, under the cruelest
treatment and when anyone would have forgiven
him for doing otherwise,
he maintained the highest sense of loyalty, duty,
and respect for his country, never breaking to the
will of his captors, Scocos said.
In honor of Heiliger,
Walker issued Executive
Order #191 to lower the
flags of the United States
and of the State of Wisconsin on Monday.

were sitting around, it was
more the weather. He tried
to leave the past in the past,
like a lot of us.

deductible. He pointed out
that contributions to SOHFA
are separate from the revenue
stream that Opera House
show ticket sales generate
for the city, which owns and
operates the venue.
It didnt make sense to
tap into that funding source
for an endowment, because
we would just be taking
money away from the city,
Lewis said.
He added the SOHFA
board of directors is in the
early stages of planning for
the endowment and is still
discussing fundraising methods and possible events it
could hold to raise money
for the endowment. Lewis
explained that once the $1
million endowment goal has
been reached and the fund
established, you have to
spend 5 percent of it each
year. You draw down on the
endowment, but try to keep it
at that level.
SOHFA is partnering with
the Stoughton Area Community Foundation to manage
the endowment, Lewis said,
because we dont have the
accounting to do that.
The endowment would
allow the Opera House director and events coordinator
Bill Brehm and Christina
Dollhausen, respectively to
possibly book more expensive performers. And it
would guarantee a solid base

of support in case the SOHFA board of directors was to
go away for some reason.
It would still go on
because the Community
Foundation is much more
broad based than SOHFA,
Lewis explained. We want
to become the Bryant Foundation of the Opera House.
To provide continuity
between the friends association and the Community
Foundation, Lewis recently
joined the foundations board
of directors.
As we collect money,
well have an account within the community foundation a designated spending
account and the money has
to go to the Opera House,
Lewis said.
A $1 million endowment
might allow Brehm and Dollhausen to bring bigger stars
to the 490-seat theater, Lewis
said. Maybe we could bring
Bonnie Raitt to the Opera
House, or how about an evening of acoustic guitar with
Mark Knopfler?

Candidates agree at
StoughtonCARES forum
Event focused on
preventing drug and
alcohol problems
Bill Livick
Unified Newspaper Group

There was little daylight


between the responses of
three candidates running for
seats on the Common Council who participated in a candidates forum last Thursday.
The event was organized
by the StoughtonCARES
Coalition, and it highlighted
the candidates positions on
various issues relating to
drugs, alcohol and the misuse of prescription drugs,
as well as laws, ordinances
and best practices related to
maintaining a safer, healthier
community for city residents.
StoughtonCARES member Sharon Mason-Boersma
moderated the forum and
posed seven questions to
each candidate: Dennis Kittleson, Kathleen Tass Johnson and Tom Majewski.
The three are among six
candidates running for seats
on the Common Council,
all of whom were invited
to the forum. There is only
one contested race Johnson against incumbent Ron
Christianson in District 2 for
a three-year seat.
Kittleson is running unopposed for a seat representing District 1, and Majewski is running unopposed
as a write-in candidate for
District 3. Also on the ballot are Scott Truehl and Pat
OConnor, who are running
unopposed in District 4.
Municipal Judge Matthew
Roethe did not attend but did
respond with written answers
to the questionnaire, which
Mason-Boersma read aloud
at the event.
One question was about
how to best deal with the
current heroin epidemic.
Kittleson, Majewski and
Johnson all stressed the
importance of education and
providing alternative outlets
that are positive for young
people, such as more sports
and recreation opportunities.
Those responses also
applied to questions about
marijuana use and underage
drinking. Majewski mentioned the importance of
school resource officers several times.
In response to a question about legalizing marijuana for recreational use,
Kittleson and Johnson said
they didnt feel strongly for
or against, although both

stressed that
legalizing
medical use
of the drug
should come
before considering recreational use.
Majewski
Majewski said the
question was
more a state
and federal
issue than
local. But,
he added, I
would support a personKittleson
al and recreational use
for adults.
I believe it
(marijuana) is less
destructive
than alcohol.
The canJohnson
didates all
agreed that
a second offense for marijuana possession should not
be a felony, as it currently is
under state law.
Johnson said society
should be more concerned
with drunken driving than
marijuana possession, and
Kittleson agreed.
The candidates also
responded to a question
about issuing licenses to sell
alcohol, saying the city needs
to check applicants backgrounds closely. Majewski
said the city has a good policy and practice in place for
considering servers licenses.
The police chief makes
a recommendation and the
council decides, he said.
We need to evaluate applications on all levels to make
sure its a fair process.
The only question not
related to drugs, alcohol or
community safety asked why
the candidates wish to serve
on the Common Council.
Kittleson said his main
goal was to create more
transparency in city government so that people know
whats being discussed.
Johnson said she loves
the historical aspects of the
citys downtown and surrounding homes.
I would concentrate on
trying to accentuate the
downtown and its businesses, she said, and would
work to promote local businesses.
Majewski said his biggest concern is quality of life
in this community, a theme
he said hes concentrated on
since first running for council four years ago.

Election: Development emerges as prominent issue for candidates


Continued from page 1
development or stagnation.
Ive worked very hard
to get our riverfront put
together, he said. Ive also
worked in the downtown
renovation project finished
out in the beginnings of my
alderships, and now Im
working on the western side
of town.
So Ive worked full circle. Our city can choose to
do that or they can choose
to focus on the inner city
and to maintain our borders
where they are today.
Christianson was first
elected in 2000 and was
defeated in his re-election
bid in 2003, but ran again
in 2004 to regain his seat
in District 2. He chairs the
Planning Commission and
serves on the Redevelopment Authority.
Johnson works for a
healthcare organization
and previously worked as a
Realtor for 13 years.
She said her concern is
not only with KPW, but
sees it as emblematic of misguided priorities and false
assumptions.
Building a super WalMart and building more
strip malls, when we already
have other strip malls and
stores empty, is not going to
bring people here, she said.
We have a real big issue
with our schools, and I
dont see anybody getting
on board to help the schools
out. I dont think families
are going to come here for
the Wal-Mart. I dont know
very many people who want
to be in the back door of
Super Wal-Mart.
Christianson has said
from the beginning that hes
less interested in seeing a
new Supercenter built than
in attracting new families
to the city. He believes that
developing KPW will spur
new home construction,
which would result in new
residents and also expand
the citys tax base.
Thats what its about,
he said.
Alders are elected for
three-year terms on the
council.

Veterans ID now accepted


Gov. Scott Walker recently signed a bill that allows
a veterans ID card as an acceptable form of photo ID
to vote.
The change begins with the April 5 election.
The state legislature first passed the voter ID law in
2011, and it was in place for a single spring primary
election in 2012 before court challenges delayed its
implementation.
It was back in place for the February primary this
year, but veterans ID cards were not accepted at that
point.
For more information on the Voter ID law, and to
find a list of the acceptable forms of ID, visit bringit.
wisconsin.gov.
Other Common Council
candidates are Dennis Kittleson, Tom Majewski, Pat
OConnor and Scott Truehl
all running unopposed.

Towns
Town of Rutland voters
can choose two of the four
candidates for town supervisor.
Incumbent supervisor
Jim Lunde is running for
re-election against challengers Richard Zentner, Gary
Howards and Nancy Nedveck for two seats. The other
supervisor seat opened since
the last election when Mark
Porter moved up to fill an
opening as town chairman.
The supervisor positions are
at large and terms last two
years.
Lunde, who has been
on the board for around
15 years, said his main

concern is taking care of


town roads.
Its a huge thing, Lunde
said. Were always nine
dollars short of 10, but other
than that, we dont have any
serious issues going on right
now.
Howards, who has a bachelors degree in education
and a masters degree in
counseling, said now that
hes retired from working
at UW Hospital, he has the
time and the will to give
back to Rutland, where his
family has lived since 1979,
and would utilize his past
experience serving on the
board of the Dane County
Conservation League.
While he said he doesnt
have any particular interest
in politics, he said addressing the town hall issue and
keeping taxes low are priorities for the town

Zentner, who ran unsuccessfully for a supervisor


position in 2013, told the
Hub Monday that its time
for new blood on the town
board.
Sometimes, we get set in
our ways, he said, noting
the constant recent discussion about building a new
town hall. Thats on the
board agenda all the time.
We need a new town hall,
but not a Taj Mahal.
Zentner said keeping the
towns budget balanced is a
top priority.
Nancy Nedveck told the
Observer her time on the
town zoning board and as
an area business owner has
given her a perspective on
town governance. She said
her primary reasons for running are trying to maintain
a rural flavor of our community, as well as creating thoughtful commercial
development to increase the
tax base.
Its a real conundrum,
with our tax base being lost
and increased costs, she
added. Weve got to balance that.
In the Town of Pleasant
Springs, Town Board incumbent Sups. Jay Damkoehler
and Janiece Bolender are
running unopposed.

School board
Three candidates are running for three open seats,
after incumbent Wanda
Grasse did not seek re-election.
Incumbents Donna Tarpinian and Joe Freye are
running again, along with
newcomer Dr. Sara Rabe,
an ordained minister for the
United Church of Christ.
Tarpinian, an office manager
with InterWorks LLC, is the
school boards vice-president
and has been a member since
2010. Freye, a fine art printmaker with UW-Madisons
Tandem Press, is finishing
his first term on the board.
School board terms are three
years.

highest turnout in a presidential primary since 1980,


according to a GAB news
release, when 45 percent of
voters went to the polls.
Kevin Kennedy, Wisconsins chief elections
official, said the high projection is largely due to the
presidential primaries that
have drawn historic turnout in other states, especially on the Republican
side.

We expect Donald
Trump to bring new voters to the polls for and
against in the Republican Presidential Preference
Primary, Kennedy said.
We also expect the battle
between Bernie Sanders
and Hillary Clinton to continue to generate interest in
the Democratic Presidential Preference Primary.
While many candidates in the Republican

primary have dropped out,


as has Democrat Martin
OMalley, their names will
still appear on the ballots
because of when they had
to be printed.
On the Republican side,
only Donald Trump, Ted
Cruz and John Kasich are
still actively campaigning.
The remaining Democrats are Hillary Clinton
and Bernie Sanders.

State Supreme Court seat contested


Incumbent state Supreme Court justice
Rebecca Bradley faces challenger Joanne
Kloppenburg for a 10-year term.
Gov. Scott Walker appointed Bradley to
the court to succeed justice Patrick Crooks,
who died in September 2015.
Kloppenburg previously ran for a seat on

the court in a 2012 race against current justice David Prosser in what many saw as a
referendum on Walkers controversial Act
10.
She and Bradley emerged as the top two
vote getters in the February primary election, beating out Joe Donald.

Junior Troy Slaby led the


Stoughton High School boys

per game, while Schipper finished with 240 points, averaging
10.9 per game.
Schipper moved over to point

more opportunities to score, and
they both grew into their new
roles to help lead the Vikings to a
fifth straight conference title.

Irene Sveum

Irene Sveum, 96, passed


away peacefully at home
on March 23, 2016.
Irene was born in
Stoughton on January
22, 1920, the daughter of
Carl and Marie (Olson)
Seamonson. She graduated from Stoughton High
School in 1938 and went
on to attend Columbia
Hospital School of Nursing in Milwaukee, graduating in 1941. Irene married
Arthur Sveum on Nov. 25,
1945, and the couple made
their home in Stoughton,
where they raised their
children and were active
in Covenant Lutheran
Church. Together, they
were honored for their
service to the community
when they were selected to
be the 1985 Stoughton Syttende Mai King and Queen.
Irene enjoyed an interesting and varied nursing career, beginning at
U W H o s p i t a l i n M a d ison. She later became an
office nurse for Dr. Carl
Harper, an obstetrician.
She spent a summer as a
nurse at Camp Manitowish in Boulder Junction and

with 17 years at Skaalen
Nursing and Rehabilitation
Home in Stoughton. Irene
was very active in both

Scouts learn about cars


For several weeks, Joe Conant, owner of Conant Automotive in
Stoughton, and Keaton Miller, local mechanic and Troop 167 Eagle
Scout, volunteered to teach the Scouts of Stoughton Troop 167 for
their automotive maintenance merit badge. Scouts met Thursdays
from Feb. 4 to March 10 at Conant Automotive to learn about cooling, brake, electric and fuel systems, the drive train, checking fluids,
belts and hoses, and changing fuses, flat tires and oil.
