Several thousand people are expected to attend the third annual Festival of Flavors — designed to showcase Wisconsin products, local food and artisans — in Eagle River this Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 27-28. The Festival of Flavors will offer a full plate of tasting events, with participating restaurants, bakeries, cheese producers and wineries presenting an array of foods, specialty items and culinary products of the Badger State. Other major activities will be an art show and sale, cooking demonstrations and contests, health and fitness events, and activities for

youths. Recently declared the Best Downtown Special Event by the Wisconsin Department of Commerce Main Street Program, the Festival of Flavors will be held at Riverview Park near downtown Eagle River with activities running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The theme for this year’s festival is “Celebrate the Taste of Wisconsin,” according to event coordinator Cindy Meinholz. “Wisconsin artisan cheese makers, meat producers, area restaurants, beverage makers and chefs will produce unique flavors available for the public to sample,” said Meinholz. General festival admission will be free to the Riverview Park grounds and the Discov-

er Wisconsin Theatre tent, where there will be displays, demonstrations and contests. When it comes to sampling food items and wine, Meinholz said dozens of booths will be set up inside a second huge tent in the park.

White-tailed bucks still have velvet on their antlers, but they will be losing the antler covering in the next couple of weeks. Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, meaning the fall color change is only a few weeks away. With cooler overnight temperatures, water temperatures are starting to drop and will change the fishing patterns for most species. Weeds are starting to die off in the shallowest water. Green weeds will provide the best fishing. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and windy, with a high of 81 and a low of 64. Thursday there should be blue skies, with a high of 77 and a low of 49.

Time is running out to claim lottery credit
Time is running out to claim the lottery and gaming credit for the 2011 tax bill, according to Vilas County Treasurer Jerri Radtke. Owners of a home in Wisconsin who used that home as their primary residence Jan. 1, 2011, may claim the credit. “An amount after the words ‘Lottery and Gaming Credit’ in the middle section of your 2010 property tax bill indicates you have claimed the credit,” said Radtke. “You may only claim one lottery and gaming credit.” If a homeowner received the credit last year, they will receive the credit again this year. “If not, and you lived in your home Jan. 1, 2010, you have until Oct. 1, 2011, to file a late claim with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue to receive last year’s credit,” said Radtke. Homeowners may obtain the form to send to the state at the Vilas County treasurer’s office or online at co.vilas.wi.us. “Filing a late claim with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue for the 2010 credit does not automatically sign you up for the 2011 credit,” said Radtke. “You will still need to file a claim for 2011 and future years with the Vilas County Treasurer’s Office. “If you moved last year and live in a new home as of Jan. 1, 2011, you will need to sign up for the 2011 lottery and gaming credit,” said Radtke. “To sign up for the credit for this year’s property tax bill, please contact the Vilas County Treasurer’s Office. If you are eligible for the credit and do not sign a claim form, you will not receive the deduction.” The amount of the credit is dependent upon the amount of revenue from lottery and gaming each year and the school district the homeowner lives in. The credits on the 2010 tax bills were as follows: Arbor Vitae, $69.59; Boulder Junction, $35.66; Cloverland, $52.98; Conover, $52.98; Lac du Flambeau, $69.54; Land O’ Lakes, $52.98 or $35.66; Lincoln, $52.98; Manitowish Waters, $35.66; Phelps, $58.75 or $52.98; Plum Lake, $52.98; Presque Isle, $35.66; St. Germain, $52.98; Washington, $52.98; Winchester, $35.66; and city of Eagle River, $52.98. For any questions regarding the lottery and gaming credit, contact the Vilas County Treasurer’s Office at (715) 479-3609.

Pines’ Richie named among top three for national award

Top honor goes to Colorado leader
Mike Richie, Northland Pines School District administrator, was selected as one of the three semifinalists from the National Association of School Superintendents (NASS) for its 2011 Superintendent of the Year award, but the final award went to a Colorado superintendent. Pines school board President Jim Mulleady was still proud of Richie’s accomplishments. “Dr. Richie has done a terrific job as district administrator here at Northland Pines,” said Mulleady. “He inherited some problems and managed to get the ship headed in the right direction. He does a wonderful job with the community and has developed the unique relationship with the YMCA.” Mulleady said Richie helped get a large operating referendum passed and student test scores have improved to the point where Pines is one of the top-performing districts in the state.” “The district recognizes the contributions he has made. We think Mike is very deserving of being nominated as a semifinalist for national Superintendent of the Year,” said Mulleady. Richie said it is an honor to be acknowledged by the national association and fellow superintendents from around the country. “But I would not have been recognized if it weren’t for the collaboration and hard work of the Northland Pines students, staff, board and community to help achieve the goals for which I strive,” said Richie. The NASS panel was impressed by Richie’s leadership and success with referendums, facilities improve-

ments, open-enrollment reversal, community integration and communication, and the improvement to student achievement. Theresa Daem, executive director of NASS, said Richie represents what educational leaders need to be today. “The real answer is leveraging the collective know-how of stellar district superintendents like Dr. Richie,” she added. But after “spirited deliberations,” Daem said the panel finally selected Linda Chapman, superintendent of the Park School District R-3 School District in Estes Park, Colo., as the association’s 2011 Superintendent of the Year. Daem said Richie’s reputation for being a committed professional was a key reason the panel named him a semifinalist. She also noted that the process included an extensive review and assessment of each candidate’s achievement of the selection criteria, which included outstanding achievement as a school district superintendent, a demonstrated belief in continuous improvement, and a commitment to collaboration and mutual support in the profession.

Holperin: over 60% of voters turn out
FROM PAGE 1A
which took collective bargaining rights away from most public workers — by leaving the Senate floor and traveling to Illinois in February. Holperin said it’s time for compromise in Madison. “My opponent tried to make this race a referendum on the single action of leaving the Capitol in order to delay a vote on the governor’s budget repair bill,” said Holperin. “If that’s what this election was about, I think voters spoke out in opposition to the confrontational Capitol politics of the last six months and by their votes are demanding more moderation, more bipartisanship and more compromise.” Vilas and Oneida county voters, like the rest of the 12th District, leaned toward Holperin. In Vilas, traditionally a Republican county, Holperin won 5,242 to 4,693. In Oneida County, Holperin won 8,945 to 6,506. “The hard work of hundreds of volunteers and campaign workers over three months produced a great win that will allow me to finish out my term,” said Holperin. “ I’m grateful for the energy and enthusiasm these dedicated campaigners brought to every aspect of the race and I thank them for all their hard work.” Voters turned out en masse for the single contest, including 66% of the voters in Vilas County and 60% in Oneida County. “I thank the voters, both those who voted for and against me, who turned out in record numbers,” said Holperin. “Their willingness to take time to vote on a beautiful summer day and with only one race on the ballot demonstrates their willingness to make democracy work and shows they care about the serious issues facing this district and the state.” Holperin said the margin of victory shows that 12th District voters endorse the work he’s doing on their behalf and want him to continue with that work for the full term for which he was elected. “I believe voters rejected a candidate who repeatedly refused to discuss the issues in forums where both candidates could answer to voters regarding their views, their experience and their platforms,” said Holperin. “Voters want honesty and transparency and want to compare candidates side by side. They will not support a candidate who won’t show up to face their questions.” Simac, 52, a small-business owner who organized the recall effort, offered a statement about the recall election and the support she received. “I want to thank each and every one of my volunteers and supporters, and the people who voted for me,” said Simac. “There was an unbelievable amount of energy and enthusiasm here, and I hope Jim Holperin remembers that, above all, he is accountable to all the voters of this district.” Simac said special-interest groups played a key role in the

Cellcom activates cell site in Vilas near Eagle River
As part of its continuing efforts to improve customers’ wireless experience, Cellcom recently activated a cell site just south of Eagle River. The new cell tower is located east of Highway 45 in southeast Vilas County and is equipped with EVDO (3G) technology. It provides improved service continuity to customers in or traveling through this area. When a Cellcom customer places a call on a cell phone, the call is sent to the nearest cell site. The site sends the call through the company’s fiber and microwave network to the switch located in Green Bay and then connected to the called telephone. When a new cell site is added to the network, the area will have increased calling capacity and service continuity. This cell site is added to the more than 375 cell sites in northeast and central Wisconsin, as well as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Vilas County Court report

Man, 56, charged with taking over $17,000 from tree service
A 56-year-old St. Germain man, who allegedly took more than $17,000 from a local tree service, was charged with three felony counts of theft in a business setting during his initial appearance in Vilas County Circuit Court last week. Michael L. Burke allegedly deposited business funds in his own bank account while he worked for America’s Best Tree Service in Eagle River. Vilas County Circuit Judge Neal A. Nielsen III released Burke on a $1,000 signature bond and set a preliminary hearing for Sept. 1 at 3:30 p.m. According to the criminal complaint, Burke allegedly received a check from Paul Spiess for $11,877.58 as payment for stumpage removal for America’s Best Tree Service in April and May of 2006. The checks were made out to Burke and not deposited into the America’s Best Tree Service account. The second charge stems from a $2,660 cash payment from wood carver Raymond Harbach, who purchased logs from America’s Best Tree Service, also in the fall of 2006. Burke allegedly took the cash and never deposited the money in the tree service account. The third charge came from a check that was made out to America’s Best Tree Service for $3,227.24 from Ambrosius Forest Products Inc., for the sale of stockpiled logs April 22, 2007. Burke allegedly signed the check, but a financial ledger shows it was not deposited in the America’s Best Tree Service account. The owner of America’s Best Tree Service, John Svabek, told the court he did not give Burke permission to take the money as an employee of the tree service. In other felony cases, Stephan Nicholas Congleton, 36, of Slinger, charged with attempted burglary of a building or dwelling and possession of burglary tools, has a motion hearing set for Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. Congleton allegedly broke into the House of Boos in Eagle River Aug. 24, 2009. He was in Vilas County Court last week for a status hearing. District Attorney Al Moustakis filed a motion to introduce other evidence, including Congleton’s alleged involvement in a burglary at Sheryl’s Club 175 April 15, 2010. Moustakis said investigators have a surveillance video from Sheryl’s Club 175 that includes a male that matches the description of Congleton. David P. Wewasson, 37, of Lac du Flambeau, charged with physical abuse of a child, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct, waived his preliminary hearing, was bound over and entered a plea of not guilty in court last week. Judge Nielsen modified his bond to a $2,500 signature bond and set a pretrial conference for Oct. 4 at 10:30 a.m. He was previously being held on $500 cash bond. Wewasson allegedly pushed his girlfriend to the ground during an incident at 206 Makoons Trail in Lac du Flambeau July 30. The complaint says he then kicked or punched her in the face. He then struck her 16-year-old son, with a closed fist, in the face, causing him to bleed from the mouth area. Conditions of Wewasson’s bond include no contact with the woman or boy, no taverns, not to possess or consume intoxicants and must report to family resources with 24 hours of release for mental health counseling. Robin L. Soulier, 29, of Lac du Flambeau, had a sentence withheld and was placed on probation for 18 months after pleading no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct. A felony charge of battery to a school officer was dismissed. Soulier was involved in an incident with a teacher at the Lac du Flambeau Public School Jan. 20 while attempting to give a sweatshirt to his daughter. In addition to probation, Soulier must get alcohol and other drug-abuse treatment, attend anger-management counseling, serve 75 hours of community service, participate in the Talking Circle at school and must write an apology to the teacher. Judge Nielsen stayed a 90-day jail sentence that can be sanctioned if Soulier would violate his probation. He received credit for one day served in the Vilas County Jail. Arika J. Brownrigg, 20, of Lac du Flambeau, had a felony bail-jumping charge from April 30 amended to a misdemeanor bond violation in Vilas County Court last week. He also had a substantial battery domestic-abuse charge amended to battery. A pretrial conference on the two new charges was set for Oct. 4 at 11 a.m. His $2,000 signature bond was continued with conditions, including no contact with victim, not to possess or consume intoxicants and no taverns. Edward M. Havican, 38, of Lac du Flambeau, charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana Dec. 4, 2010, had a status hearing adjourned to a date to be determined. Havican apparently had significant health problems and could not attend his status hearing last Wednesday.

City OKs project with USDA funding

BIG CROWD — The annual Paul Bunyan Festival was held on Wall and Railroad streets in Eagle River last weekend, attracting several thousand people to the downtown area. The event featured art and craft booths (above) and roast beef sandwich sales (right). In addition, Ken Schels demonstrated chainsaw carving. --Staff Photos By JUSTIN KNITT

Following the recommendation from the city administrator and the utility manager, the Eagle River City Council will approve the Silver Lake Road reconstruction project if federal funding can be secured. The council also agreed to extend sewer and water along Highway 70 West as part of the project, bringing the total cost of about $1.5 million. Two grants have been secured for Silver Lake Road that would pay 47% of the cost — one for $286,000 and another for $186,000. With the two projects combined, the city could be eligible for a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) 40-year loan, according to Laux. “While there is some risk of only a 20-year loan, by tying the projects together with a 40-year loan, it will minimize the impact on the rate payers and city property owners,” Laux said. “They will tell us between January and March of next year about the loan.” Soil borings beneath Silver Lake Road indicated that when it was originally constructed, it didn’t have a gravel base. The infrastructure is approaching 60 years old, and it is recommended the water main be replaced, since it is only six inches and cast with lead joints, according to Pat Weber, utility manager. “The four fire hydrants range from 30 to 70 years old and parts are no longer available,” Weber wrote in a report to the council. “Twenty-two water services, several of them lead, would be replaced.” Engineer Jim Bollmann of MSA Professional Services

(MSA) agreed that combining the two projects would be “big enough for them” for funding by USDA. The interest rate would be 3.375%. “We have to approach local financial institutions as part of the process and ask if they will give us a 40-year loan at 3.375%,” Laux told the council. “Their response has been ‘tell us when you want our letter of rejection.’ ” Councilman Jerry Burkett asked if the city could afford these two projects without raising taxes. “I don’t want to set us up for a fall,” said Burkett. “I’m willing to drive on cobblestones before we raise taxes. To go out 70 West, due to future expansion, is not a reason for me. To service Nero’s and The Wicked Grill, is it fiscally responsible?” Laux responded that he wasn’t absolutely certain of the answer but admitted, with a 40-year loan with USDA, there are a lot of moving parts. “The impact is Highway 70 West and how the USDA can mitigate that,” Laux replied. “If the city did it alone without the utility, we could not get the loan; it’s to our advantage to do both.” “I cannot stress it strongly enough how it will affect taxpayers,” Burkett continued. “Growth is wonderful, but growth without a benefit to taxpayers is unacceptable.” Mayor Jeff Hyslop said, “if the USDA loan is not favorable, it’s the end.” The council can make a further determination on the two projects in 2012 with possible construction affecting the 2014 budget.

School: students required to get vaccinations
FROM PAGE 1A
will begin classes Thursday, Sept. 1. All other Northland Pines High School students will begin classes Friday, Sept. 2. At Northland Pines High School, James Brewer is the new principal. Prior to this year, he was the associate principal at Waukesha South High School. “I’m very excited to get started with this school year and to see the kids back in the building,” said Brewer. “The reason we all went into this profession to begin with is to work with the kids.” Brewer’s mission is to get to know the staff, students and their families and community members. One of the areas he would like to focus on is a district goal of collaboration in both inter- and intra-departmental areas. “Building relationships is important to me to connect with staff and, ultimately, the connection with the kids,” he said. As for new staff in the high school, Joe Grittner will be the new art teacher and Tim Lehman will join the staff as the new building and trades, technical-education teacher. Joining the staff in a new capacity will be Jennifer Weber, who will be the Spanish teacher, and Jeff Jansen will be a paraprofessional working in the at-risk program. Three Lakes ready Something new this year is a six-period day with one-hour classes as school begins Sept. 1 in Three Lakes. “I believe we are the first in the state of Wisconsin to implement this program,” said K-12 principal Bill Greb. “We’re very excited about the six-period class schedule. A lot of thought and energy was put into this by administration, staff and the board. At the end of the day, we decided what’s best for students,” shared Greb. The six-period days will consist of one-hour class lengths and will provide significantly more one-on-one time to work with students as well as additional time for lab work and hands-on work, according to Greb. “We try to be ahead of the curve here at Three Lakes. Students have taken ownership of their education and it has made a significant difference,” he stated. New staff members in the district include Ameris Grapa, seventh- to 12th-grade art teacher and Stacey Stroud will be the new physical education instructor. Greb will serve as the elementary, junior and senior high school principal and Kris Brow will serve as the new technology coordinator and elementary dean of students. Phelps starts Sept. 1 Delnice Hill, district administrator for the Phelps School District, said that school will begin Sept. 1, but will only be a half-day for students, while the staff has an afternoon of in-service. Hill stated that Phelps School District is increasing its partnership with Wisconsin virtual schools, giving students the opportunity to take a wide variety of courses from around the state. Technology will be expanded with the use of i-pods, ipads and laptop computers. According to Hill, the next step will be to phase in electronic textbooks to move to a more blended education. “This means students will have all their classes available to them 24/7,” said Hill. “I am very excited about the direction education is taking in Phelps,” she added. There will be five new staff this year. Andrew Richard will teach technical education and engineering drafting, Todd Riha will teach middle school with an emphasis on science, while Jane Sjostrom will work in the school’s library and RTI center. Jenny Mueller will teach high school science and Jill Mesun will be a teacher’s aide in special education. Parochial school Christ Lutheran School will open its doors to students Wednesday, Aug. 31. School will begin with an opening service to be held at 8:15 a.m. at Christ Lutheran Church in Eagle River. According to school principal Chris Mueller, recent upgrades to technology will assist in teaching and learning at the school. SmartBoards have been installed and will be used in the middle- and upper-grade classrooms, along with a projector in the lower grade room. The computer lab also gained an additional five computers this summer. The school building is getting a facelift with new siding being installed on the school. The project is expected to be completed in early September. A workday is scheduled Saturday, Aug. 27, beginning at 8 a.m. for volunteers to help clean up the school grounds. “We are really looking forward to providing a quality, Christ-centered education again this year. The faculty has all worked hard over the summer in their classrooms and with the curriculum. We can’t wait for the kids to come back and help them learn, grow, and use their God-given abilities to the fullest,” said Mueller. Vaccinations The Vilas County Public Health Department advised that parents should not wait until the last minute to get their child vaccinated. There are two different vaccines — tetanus, diphtheria and pertussus (Tdap) and varicella — that are now required by the Wisconsin Student Immunization Law for middle and high school students. Two doses of varicella are now required unless the child has had the chicken pox. Parents must have their children vaccinated or sign a waiver available at their school. According to the department, parents should review their children’s immunization records regardless of which grade they are entering in the fall to ensure that they are up to date for school. Vaccines are available from private physician or the Vilas County Public Health Department. To schedule an appointment with the health department, call (715) 479-3656.

Superior Street closure debate dominates discourse at meeting
___________

BY ANTHONY DREW
NEWS-REVIEW ASST. EDITOR

___________

A debate over the financial impact of Superior Street closures on businesses during Three Lakes events monopolized last Tuesday night’s board meeting discussion. Three Lakes Town Chairman Don Sidlowski read a string of emailed comments regarding the matter, which he said are available on public record through Town Clerk Sue Harris. While a survey showed many Three Lakes businesses support street closures for events, the board conceded that some festivities could be held on park grounds. “The parks should be looked at for some events,” said Supervisor Jeff Bruss. “Going forward, we might suggest, before you start the planning, a different venue.” Bruss went on to say he is in favor of Superior Street closures for events that draw people to Three Lakes, a sentiment Supervisor Steve Garbowicz agreed with. “The idea is just to get people in town,” said Garbowicz. “I heard a lot of comments from out-of-town people at the block party, amazed that a town our size could do something like this.” Owner of White Deer Wine & Spirits in downtown Three Lakes, John Olkowski Jr., who is the most vocal opponent to Superior Street closures, argued that downtown events like the Single Best Block Party are badly hurting some Three Lakes businesses.

“You diverted all of that traffic away from those of us whose businesses are landlocked,” said Olkowski. “My business, on an average Thursday in the first three weeks of August is $4,000 a day. The day you had an event, it was down to around $700.” During a board member comment period at the meeting, Garbowicz berated Olkowski for recent emails to the town board and his alleged behavior during the block party. “I would like to think that we live in a community where we can sit down and talk about this and not get belittling emails, not have people running up and down the main street of our town swearing, screaming and yelling at people,” said Garbowicz. “I got complaints from people about your language in front of their wives and their children. There is no excuse for that. None.” Olkowski denied using profanities in front of children during the event, saying his comments were made earlier that day. He instead criticized board members for ignoring an invitation to his establishment to see how street closures affect business. “Am I supposed to be embarrassed when I get mad about something like that, when I ask for one public official to spend a half-hour and listen to what I have to say and look at the situation?” he asked. “I think you failed.” Sidlowski then urged the public to request a formal public record of every email the board has received from

Olkowski, which he claimed include profanity, in an effort to prove Olkowski has mistreated the town board. “He sounds real rational right now, but there’s a good reason we don’t walk into his business, folks,” said Sidlowski. “So, read the same emails and get a flavor for what you’re seeing.” Bruss backed up Sidlowski’s statement, offering an explanation to Olkowski for ignoring the invitation. “I’ve been a supervisor for three years and you have never, ever, rationally come in and asked me to do anything,” said Bruss. “You flip-flop from one way to the other. I’m near the point of resignation because of you.” Relating the discussion back to Superior Street closures, Bruss said he agreed with Olkowski about the fundamentals of his argument. “If we’re talking about Superior Street, I agree with you, John,” he said. “You have a good point about moving the parties. Period. I’ve said that. It’s the way you convey your messages.” While some business owners echoed some of Olkowski’s complaints, a significant number were in favor of any event that brings publicity to town. Of the 30 business owners who responded to the survey, 17 supported street closures for events, seven said “it depends,” four were opposed and two expressed no opinion. Sidlowski said the survey responses and ensuing discussion served their purpose and provided the board with enough information for future

consideration. Events on Superior Street this year included the Superior Street Fair, Single Best Block Party, Art on Main, Fourth of July Parade and the one-time Budweiser Clydesdale Parade. Other business In other business, the town board: — decided to defer action on the Gary Post subdivision land dispute to a future agenda following a hearing with involved landowners; — heard a Three Lakes Trails update from Jeff Smith regarding a potential Three Lakes to Eagle River snowmobile trail reroute; — learned that Oneida County had asserted ownership of the Branham Road stub for the portions north and northwest of the gate to the quarter line and had ordered the gate removed; — heard Act 31 Committee Chairman Jim Leatzow explain that the committee is holding off on any comment regarding the s-curve in Laurel Lake until more input is received after the boating season; — denied a preliminary three lot and one outlot certified survey map for property at 972 and 974 Golf Course Loop, referring the matter back to the property owners; and — heard the Budget and Finance Committee make recommendations to hold openmeeting discussions of finances, enhance quarterly reports and increase team structure by adding a committee member.

Library: campaign based on donations
FROM PAGE 1A
tural plan that more than doubles the square footage of Olson Memorial Library, and with a passion they both share for seeing the library as a vital part of the community, both Caz and Jensen look forward to the campaign and working with the people who have volunteered to be part of it. Jensen and Caz stress that the campaign is based upon donations and not additional taxes. When asked how a $3.26 million project would succeed built on public donations, Jensen commented, “Everyone has some capacity to be part of this project. We have been developing campaign informational programs to explain to community members how they can help to make this project successful.” Caz responded, “The library is like a living thing with arms that reach out to all the people. It’s every person’s resource. The limitations of our current building are obvious. Changing those limitations to boundless limits will not get cheaper as we move through these next years.” When asked what the limitations are within the current library building, Jensen listed the checkout desk, which does not provide clear views to the entire facility, and inadequate work space for the staff to catalog new materials or receive interlibrary loan materials. Long waits for computers and a lack of terminals, a meeting room that allows for no more than 35 people, and storage space which is deplorable add to the current problems. Caz added that the book stacks create a claustrophobic atmosphere because there’s nowhere to go with the collection. They noted that interlibrary loan use has expanded because there simply isn’t room for an expanded collection that would provide patrons with what they hope they will find on the book shelves in the facility. Both co-chairpersons commented on the foundation’s hope to change the library from less than the “basic” category in library standards to “enhanced,” while not increasing staff or operating costs. “The library demonstrates what people here value,” said Jensen. “It’s more than art and literature. It’s a sanctuary for ideas, for history and process. And it’s a home base for those who need to use the ever-expanding world of technology.” Caz and Jensen noted that this building project has been on the horizon for some time. When the foundation was led by the late Roger Rieckman, the possibility for expansion was being explored. “Roger was the linchpin to what is happening now as we proceed into the campaign. He was someone truly special,” said Jensen. The foundation and the trustees have studied the limitations of the current building. Those limitations and ways in which to improve the library through a new design were then verified through intensive interviews with more than 60 community members from across the area. “Those interviewed were a good cross section of users and nonusers of the library,” Caz reported. “They were interviewed by an uninvolved questioner. The general consensus was that it is feasible to build a new library, and that the new library is needed in this community.” The foundation and the trustees are excited about features that have been recommended for the new library layout. There will be room to almost double the collection of books and nonbook format materials, a meeting room that will allow groups up to 150, much more dedicated space for a computer technology center and a Wi-Fi broadband system, a circulation desk designed for visibility throughout the library, plus ample storage space. Caz stated the architects and the foundation decided that the construction will include green-friendly building materials and concepts as well as the necessary additions to normal library operation. Jensen added that the foundation used computer modeling to design the most effective and least financially draining utility format. “We have developed an environmentally sustainable design with the help of the LEED-certified firm of Durrant Architects and Engineers,” he said. According to the chairpersons, the drive to obtain $3.26 million is under way. It began with the premiere of a DVD presenting the case and the project to members of the library staff, the Friends of the Library, library volunteers, trustees, foundation members and the drive’s cabinet representing all areas of the community. The drive will continue with speakers who have been asked to appear at various civic and organization meetings. “The generosity of this community through thick and thin as you see in Relay For Life or church projects is astounding,” said Jensen. “We are a caring community. We care about the quality of our lives, about our children. We know the new library will further enrich that quality.” When asked why the foundation would embark upon a building project and fundraising campaign in the current economic climate, Jensen further stated, “We have not come to this campaign in a hasty manner. It’s been growing for more than eight months, and even years before that. No matter when you initiate a campaign, you will always have some questions caused by looking in your rearview mirror, but with costs increasing and the need growing, the people who love the library and its importance to the community will make this happen.” They added that Olson Memorial Library is a place to meet, gather information, relax, find resources and share camaraderie with others. “I truly believe in my heart that this will be a success,” said Caz. “The need is clear and the total is not unreasonable. The domino effect will work.” The Olson Memorial Library Foundation has developed a website focusing on the building campaign.

PROPOSED ATV ROUTE

ATV: board will consider survey from town residents
FROM PAGE 1A
will be limited to two minutes so as many people as possible have an opportunity to speak,” said Snook, referring to town residents. Phelps residents and landowners also will be given a survey, which they will have roughly two weeks to fill out and return. The survey asks Phelps residents and property owners whether they favor ATV routes and offers an open space for suggestions. Only Phelps citizens and property owners are allowed to fill out the survey. The Wisconsin Towns Association deemed the survey legal, according to Snook. The survey documents and results will become public record. “The next step will be to go through that survey and evaluate suggestions and. if we need to tweak the ordinance based on input from the citizens, we will,” said Snook. “We’ll then put it to a board vote.” Copies of the survey, a map of the proposed routes and the draft ordinance are available for download at the town of Phelps website at phelpswi.com or at the Phelps Chamber of Commerce website at phelpscofc.org. ATV route maps also will be posted at the Phelps Community Center, First National BankPhelps Branch and Phelps Convenience Center.

After an attempt was made to freeze wages for certain nonunion employees, the Vilas County Board approved a 3% salary hike for those workers. The county Personnel Committee had recommended the 3% salary increase for certain nonrepresented confidential secretaries in the sheriff’s department, corporation counsel office and the financial manager in the Social Services department. But immediately after the wage increase resolution was introduced, Linda Thorpe, chairwoman of the Personnel Committee, offered an amendment to freeze the current salaries. According to board Chairman Steve Favorite, the positions were grouped together and “the salary range was on the high side.” He said the intent was to “freeze rather than lower” the employees’ current wages. Comments from supervisors, who were committee members for several departments, suggested there were differences in the functions of the confidential secretaries. “The Social Services financial officer requires at least an associate degree (in accounting), and other confidential secretaries do not,” Supervisor Jim Behling pointed out. “The sheriff ’s department confidential secretary is also the department’s financial manager,” noted Supervisor Bob Egan. With that, Thorpe withdrew her motion to amend the resolution to freeze salaries giving way to debate on the 3% raise itself. “In our economy, 3% raise is too high,” declared Supervisor Fred Radtke. “There is a decrease in state pensions, no increase in Social Security; it should be zero. Look at the financial report from the (county) treasurer.” That report shows 2011 delinquent taxes in Vilas County stood at $3,507,231 as of Aug. 11. This was $83,068

higher than last year at this time. Supervisor Jim Behling said the 3% increase was justified. “We have given employees under collective bargaining an increase,” Behling said. “I’m not willing to say that they are more valuable than our management and non-represented employees.” The 3% wage increases were approved on a 16-5 vote. Supervisors voting against the resolution were Charles Rayala, Leon Kukanich, Maynard Bedish, Charles Rayala and Radtke. New districts OK’d After a minor adjustment, the county board approved the redistricting plan for the 21 supervisory districts following the 2010 census. Supervisor Dennis Nielsen requested the community of Sayner not be split between districts 1 and 4. Andrew Faust of the North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission indicated the change would affect less than 17% of the population, so it would be allowable. “There are 26 persons that would switch from District 1 to District 4 on the south shore of Plum Lake,” Faust indicated. “There would be six persons going from District 4 to District 1.” The board approved the adjustment, noting there would also have to be an adjustment in the ward plans submitted by the town of Plum Lake and the town of Land O’ Lakes. In other business, a resolution requesting approval to fill four vacant positions in the Highway Department was withdrawn. The board approved appointments of John Baron to the Board of Adjustment and Fred Indermuehle as first alternate. Other appointments included Mary Kapke and Nikki Reed to the Community Options Program and Merton Jensen to the Veterans Commission.

Pines panel studies teacher evaluation process
___________

BY KEN ANDERSON
NEWS CORRESPONDENT

___________

Teacher evaluations and how they are used — including improving teacher effectiveness — dominated discussion at last week’s meeting of the Northland Pines School Board Policy Committee. St. Germain and Land O’ Lakes elementary schools Principal Scott Foster said a rating scale containing 10 teaching standards is the framework administration uses to evaluate and improve teachers’ performance. “Our number one job is the evaluation process,” Foster told school board President Jim Mulleady, along with board members Holly McCormack and Mike Sealander. “We don’t walk in and observe a teacher (in the classroom) one time and then fill out an evaluation form. We look at items within each standard. Teachers were part of developing the evaluation tool.” The evaluation is geared toward professionalism, according to middle school Principal Jackie Coghlan. “We use what we’ve seen them do and it’s very time consuming,” said Coghlan, pointing out administrators can

now do a running evaluation throughout the year. “It takes me about two hours per teacher to prepare the final printed copy. I don’t have two hours to sit down and do it at school and I always do them at home. The final evaluation is how we document seeing what a teacher does.” Coghlan described the goals the teachers were expected to reach. If a lower score is given in a specific area, they often ask the teacher why they feel a higher rating may be deserved. Areas included in the teacher evaluation are knowledge of their subject matter, knowing student growth and development, and understanding how students differ. Other areas are demonstrating skills to engage students in learning, skills in classroom management, communicating clearly and accurately, quality of lesson plans, ability to assess student progress, ability for selfreflection, and how they foster relationships not only within the school setting but also in the community. Each area has a four-point scale, ranging from one indicating unsatisfactory, to four, distinguished. “We look at workshops and conferences teachers go to and things they do outside the

building to get included,” said Coghlan. “I have many teachers I give a three rating ask what they need to do to reach a four.” Mulleady asked about the possibility of a standard statewide teacher evaluation tool. “Governor Walker is calling a task force together with the Department of Public Instruction for a statewide tool,” Mulleady said. “Teacher associations have decided they won’t participate. Why should we go through great lengths (with our evaluation tool) when there will be a statewide tool?” Coghlan said the local evaluation still helps the teachers and students. “We should not just sit and wait if we can help our staff,” Coghlan responded. New high school Principal Jim Brewer agreed, saying one goal of the evaluation tool is to increase teacher effectiveness. “What are the weaknesses you (the teacher) have that we can help you improve?” Brewer said, pointing out that keeping a running file of notes and observations wasn’t permitted under the former contract. “This year, excluding secretaries and paraprofessionals, I will have 30 evaluations to do. That would double if I had an-

nual evaluations. In the past, evaluations were decorations in terms of being able to hire or fire someone. In this postWalker world, we’ll be letting people go based on evaluations; making decisions on teachers’ futures on the evaluations.” Foster said it’s important the evaluations and results are documented. “The key is not all about hiring and firing, but improving teacher effectiveness,” he said. Mulleady suggested any statewide tool could be useful locally. “If it’s one of the tools used to decide a teacher’s future, we could incorporate elements to make it fit Eagle River and I don’t think that will happen,” he predicted. Board member Mike Sealander said this process was an improvement over past practice. “In the past, they may not have been evaluated effectively,” he said. Administrator Mike Richie agreed that the focus should be on improving instruction. “Every year we need to focus on helping a teacher improve,” he said. “In the past, it was difficult to not renew a teacher based on their evaluations and now it is easier.”

Recognizing 50 years of grouse habitat work
GROUSE FEVER will intensify next week as the organization that does so much for hunters and habitat holds its fifth annual Sportsmen’s Banquet at Whitetail Inn in St. Germain. The continued resurgence of the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) in Wisconsin can be seen on several fronts these days and, locally, it’s the Chain O’ Lakes Chapter that keeps the effort growing. The chapter’s banquet is scheduled next Thursday, Sept. 1, with all the traditional fixings of a fund-raiser — door prizes, raffles, limited-edition prints and carvings, a silent auction and, of course, guns. The proceeds will help the RGS grow as the habitat-minded force you’d expect, weighing in on federal and state topics that affect forest management while improving the science, public awareness and partnerships with the U.S. Forest Service. 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of an entity that has become one of the nation’s most respected conservation organizations. It has been recognized by national and state wildlife agencies for its achievements in forest management and its use of scientific research to improve habitat for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and dozens of other species. For the past seven years, RGS volunteers from Green Bay, the Fox Valley and the North Woods have gathered on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest for workdays, cleaning and mowing game trails used by wildlife and hunters. An ongoing cost-sharing partnership between the two entities is targeting the regeneration of

alder and aspen habitats essential to grouse, American woodcock, snowshoe hare, songbirds and other wildlife. Mike Zagata, RGS executive director and CEO, said the organization has contributed more than $650,000 to fund 90 projects in 40 counties since 1985. One of the leaders on those projects is Gary Zimmer of Wabeno, a former Forest Service biologist who left his position to join RGS many years ago. RGS provides a vital, yet sometimes camouflaged, service in pumping out press statements regarding various forest management issues. The latest, one that is sure to grab headlines for years to come, points to a federal court ruling on the Huron-Manistee National Forest in central Michigan that sets a troubling precedent. In that ruling, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals said the Forest Service must consider banning gun hunting and snowmobiling on 66,000 acres of semiprimitive nonmotorized areas (6.75% of the forest). The ruling questions whether hunting is a compatible use of these areas given that the Forest Plan states that users will find a “high probability of experiencing isolation from the sights and sounds of humans.” RGS quoted this disappointing statement from the court’s ruling:

“And so, in striking a balance between competing uses of the Forests, one might expect the Service seriously to consider whether, say, birdwatchers in fall should be able to enjoy their pastime, in 6.75% of the forests, without ducking for the occasional gunshot.” Where RGS really shined on this issue was in coordinating input from 35 leading wildlife conservation organizations urging the Forest Service to reject the proposal ban on gun hunting and snowmobiling. So effective was its public awareness campaign that the Forest Service received 7,400 comments in a 45-day period — more than four times the 1,400 comments the agency received when it rewrote its massive Forest Plan several years back. The Forest Service is weighing all the input before deciding if any of the forest should be closed to gun hunting and snowmobiling, a process that could take up to a year. Where RGS also shines is in educating federal officials about the importance of aggressive forest management and the benefits of early successional forests following a timber harvest. The lead biologist on the job is Dan Dessecker of Park Falls, who was promoted to director of Conservation Policy several years ago. The title allows Dessecker to weigh in on forest and wildlife management issues involving the national forests. And nothing is dearer to his heart than supporting varied timber management programs that improve the amount of early successional forest on the landscape, habitat that has virtually disappeared on many national forests. While the organization cares

deeply about ruffed grouse and American woodcock, two game species that rely heavily on young successional forest habitat, their work also impacts nongame birds and animals that require similar habitat to survive. Yes, RGS is becoming more visible than ever before on many fronts, and that’s a good thing for biodiversity in an age when some groups want public lands restored to mostly old-growth forest. Anyone wanting a ticket for the

local RGS banquet Sept. 1 can contact Dan Anderson of Eagle River at (715) 479-8511. It’s time to celebrate five decades of work and to keep these habitat-minded organizations going strong. Established in 1961, the Ruffed Grouse Society is the one international wildlife conservation organization dedicated to promoting conditions suitable for grouse, woodcock and related wildlife to sustain our sport hunting tradition.

The National Championship Musky Open continued to reign as one of the most popular fishing tournaments in the Midwest as it attracted 1,057 anglers to 72 Eagle River area lakes Friday through Sunday. Blair Best of Appleton was the top fisherman and Don Pestka of Wausau was the luckiest ticket holder in the 26th annual tournament, headquartered at the Vilas County Fairgrounds. A total of 153 legal-size muskies were registered in the three-day event. While most anglers fished just Saturday and Sunday, fishing on Friday was optional when thunderstorms rolled through the area. The tournament is sponsored by the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center and the Musky Clubs Alliance of Wisconsin. A record 1,109 anglers fished in the tournament in 2007. Top anglers Best won the tournament by catching four muskies, including fish measuring 423/4, 39, 36 and 353/4 inches. He won a first-place trophy for his effort and was proclaimed the national champion by tournament master of ceremonies Steve Heiting of St. Germain, editor of Musky Hunter Magazine. He was one of just two anglers to catch and release four fish in the tournament and won by just 7.75 points over Ken Wienke of Marshfield. Fishing on Little Arbor Vitae Lake, Best said he caught all his muskies Friday and Sunday fishing with Larry Slagoski, president of the Musky Clubs Alliance of Wisconsin. “On Friday, I was casting a perch Bobbie Bait and on Sunday I was throwing a fire tiger Bobbie Bait,” Best told Heiting on the stage in front of more than 1,000 anglers Sunday afternoon, noting he was new to

Water temperatures start annual decline
There is a hint of autumn in the air on many mornings now, though daytime temperatures still are near 80 degrees. It is very comfortable out there in the evenings and a great time to be out fishing. The water temperatures are now making their annual journey down through the 70s, but we will still get some warm fronts going through that will halt that temperature decline. Weed growth is starting to decline also. The shallower weeds die off first, making those fish that have stayed very shallow move out to deeper green weeds. Walleye fishing remains good to very good on the Chain. There are a lot of fish in the weeds now and good numbers are being caught. It has been a good several weeks for walleyes on the Chain. Leeches, minnows and crawlers are working about evenly, so take several different types of bait along. The deeper lakes still aren’t producing as well as they should be at this time of year. Everything is late (calendar wise) this year, so there is still hope the deep-water bite will produce. If it does start, half-crawlers seem to be best. Bass fishing has been very good the last week or so, with both smallies and largemouths hitting quite well. The smallmouths are back on the rocks and now hitting on a daily basis. Leeches are the best live bait for them in the 8- to 12-foot range along hard-bottom areas. Deeper running crankbaits also work quite well in either red or brown colors. The largemouths are still, of course, in the weeds. They are hitting plastics and spinnerbaits with abandon. Muskie action is pretty good and they are hitting better during the daytime now. Anglers will find bigger fish “babysitting” schools of cisco or minnows in deeper water during the daytime. These fish will utilize feeding windows, during which they suddenly become active for an hour or so. You have a good chance at a large fish if you catch one of these feeding periods. Bucktails are probably the best single bait right now, but surface baits also work well. Panfish action has been good, but not quite as good as several weeks ago. The bluegills are still in the weeds right along with the largemouths. Worms or waxworms will work well for these fish. Perch are in the deeper weed areas and hitting quite well on minnows or leeches. Crappies are in the deeper brush piles and hitting minnows as usual. It should be a nice week of fishing with the weather cooperating this week. Good luck and good fishin’.

the sport of muskie fishing. “I would like to thank my fatherin-law for getting me involved in hunting and fishing.” Boat winners Pestka, who has been a supporter of the tournament since 1995 as owner of Super Slayer Tackle Co. in Wausau, won the grand door prize — a Ranger boat, 115-horsepower Mercury motor and Minn Kota electric motor. “I have been involved in the Musky Open since the mid1990s, but my doctor said I couldn’t fish in it this year because I have bad legs,” said Pestka, sitting in his new boat and being congratulated by

many tournament participants. “This is one of the best events that is held in the country because it brings family and friends together year after year to fish muskies.” Heiting noted the tournament attracted anglers from across the state, and the country for that matter, with 12 states represented. While only anglers who entered the tournament for $55 had a chance at the top door prize, a second identical fishing boat package was given away by the Musky Clubs Alliance following a summerlong fundraising raffle. That winner was not at the tournament. Besides a boat as a top door

prize, anglers had a chance to win more than 200 other door prizes Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon — ranging from muskie baits to rods and reels to huge landing nets. All anglers received a free hat and T-shirt. More than $40,000 in prizes were awarded during the tournament.

Pro-MAC tournament slated on Eagle Chain
The Professional Muskie Angler Circuit™ (Pro-MAC) will visit the Eagle River Chain of Lakes this Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 27 and 28, with its fifth of six two-day qualifying tournaments for the 2011 season. Many of the Pro-MAC anglers competing at the Eagle River qualifier will have a chance to be the top 50-point leaders invited to compete at the invitational championship, which features a guaranteed payout of $40,000 to the first-place finishers with a purse of $55,000. “Because the Eagle River Chain has annually produced a great amount of legal muskies for tournament anglers in the past, the Eagle River tournament will play a very important role in how teams will qualify for the championship, giving many teams the necessary points to put them in the championship,” said tournament director Beth Johnson. The Pro-MAC Eagle River qualifier is limited to 125 twoangler teams. With a full field of participants, the Eagle River event will pay out a purse of $28,800, with $15,000 going to the firstplace finishers. As usual, the Pro-MAC will incorporate three ease-out locations (Eagle River Inn on Watersmeet Lake, Wild Eagle Lodge on Duck Lake and Chanticleer Inn just off of Eagle Lake) both Saturday and Sunday, to spread out the competitors and to assure the anglers will get to fishing as soon as possible each day. To fish the Eagle River Chain Pro-MAC event, send in a team entry form or sign up Friday night, Aug. 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Wild Eagle Lodge, located just off of Highway 45 North on Chain O’ Lakes Road.

Early Canada goose hunt starts Sept. 1
As September approaches, so do the first fall hunting opportunities — the early Canada goose and mourning dove seasons. The early Canada goose season in Wisconsin will run Sept. 1-15 statewide. The dove season will run Sept. 1-Nov. 9 statewide. The early Canada goose season is made possible by the historic growth of local giant Canada goose populations. Wisconsin’s breeding population was up 12% this spring with 176,095 geese counted during the spring waterfowl survey. Harvest of Canada geese in the early season now amounts to one-third of the total annual Canada goose harvest in Wisconsin. “The early season provides additional and ample opportunities for our goose hunters and directs harvest pressure toward these locally nesting geese,” said Kent Van Horn, migratory game bird ecologist for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The early season daily bag limit is five birds. In addition to the standard small-game hunting license and state and federal waterfowl stamps, participation requires a $3 early Canada goose permit and Harvest Information Program (HIP) certification. Registering for HIP (the federal Harvest Information Program) is free and can be done at any DNR service center or licensing sales agent. The national HIP registry allows biologists to more accurately survey hunters about important harvest information and participation. There are no zones or subzones during the early season. The hunt is statewide regardless of what area hunters may hold a permit for during the regular goose season. Wisconsin’s resident geese often change feeding and movement patterns this time of year, biologists said. “Hunters who scout prior to the hunt and stay mobile during the season give themselves the best chance for success,” said Van Horn. Dove season details Mourning doves are one of the most abundant and widely distributed birds in Wisconsin and throughout North America and populations are stable and slowly growing, Van Horn said. On average, about 14,000 Wisconsin hunters harvest 140,000 mourning doves each year. As with Canada geese, mourning dove hunters should benefit from scouting to see where birds are flying as they move between roosts, water and feeding areas. With a holiday weekend quickly following the opening of these hunts, there likely will be large numbers of people spending time outdoors. “We encourage everyone to respect each other’s interests,” said Van Horn. Dove hunters also must be HIP certified to be in compliance with state and federal law. This free certification can be requested when purchasing a small-game hunting license. The national HIP registry allows biologists to more accurately survey hunters about harvest information and participation.

`The Plum Creek Chapter of Ducks Unlimited (DU) in Sayner will hold its 2011 fall banquet Tuesday, Aug. 30, at Clearview Supper Club on Big St. Germain Lake. In an effort to make the event more affordable, the chapter has reduced ticket prices to $50 per person, $90 per couple and $275 per sponsor. Tickets includes Clearview’s prime rib dinner, DU membership, door prizes and more. “This year, more than ever, North American waterfowl need the help of DU to conserve, maintain and support habitat on both the northern breeding and southern wintering grounds,” said Plum Creek Chapter member Will Maines. Millions of acres of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands have been withdrawn from the system due to economic and federal budget considerations, making it vitally important that DU supporters contribute toward the preservation of waterfowl habitat, according to Maines. “Especially critical are the

prairie regions of the Dakotas and Canada, where ducks rely heavily on native grass areas for breeding habitat,” he said. “These are the exact type of grasslands being lost with the shrinkage of CRP.” Ducks Unlimited members who attend and support local dinners help ensure a healthy future, not only for waterfowl but more than 900 other species of animals, fish and amphibians which rely on wetlands for survival. This year, the Plum Creek dinner will feature some new raffle items, including a Green Mountain pellet grill donated in part by Earth Sense Energy Systems of Sayner, a handcrafted pine coffee table built and donated by Mark Glander, a DU grandfather clock with built-in gun cabinet, several black powder rifles, the DU gun of the year and more. To reserve tickets, send a check for the appropriate amount to Tom Reed, P.O. Box 5, Sayner, WI 54560. For more information, contact Maines at (715) 542-3501 or Reed at (715) 542-3994.

The Northland Pines football team defeated the Three Lakes Bluejays last Friday night 55-0, making a strong defensive statement in their first game of the season. The Eagles’ defense, which allowed only a single first down the entire game, scored two touchdowns off turnovers in the nonconference contest. “Overall, it was a good win for the boys,” said Pines coach Jason Foster. “We controlled the line of scrimmage and had a lot of blue jerseys around the football. Lucas Ferber led the way and made numerous plays behind the line of scrimmage.” Adam Kresl was the first to score for Pines, running for a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Three Lakes coach Brian Fritz said he was happy with the performance of the Jays’ defense in the first quarter, only giving up one score against the Division 3 Eagles. “We had several plays I thought could have gone our way and changed the complexion of the quarter,” he said. “However, with the doublewing offense Pines runs, you’re always waiting for the big play to happen.” The second quarter saw three Eagles touchdowns. The first came from 67-yard run Austin Ramesh. The next two touchdowns came from Johnny Schwenn, who had an 11yard touchdown run before an 82-yard interception return on defense. A number of Three Lakes injuries in the second quarter forced the Jays to dig into their shallow bench. “We suited up 22 boys, freshmen through senior, and we’re extremely thin regarding depth of positions,” said Fritz. “In total, by the middle of the second quarter, we had five starters out. We couldn’t overcome such a set back.” Schwenn continued to score in the second half, leading things off for the Eagles with a 63-yard touchdown run. Also in the third quarter were a 32yard fumble return from Brian Kubacki and a 6-yard touchdown run from Kresl. Tanner Perry ran 53 yards for the final Eagles touchdown, securing the shutout win against the Bluejays. “Offensively, we rushed for

Y Scramble to benefit Strong Kids Campaign
There is one way to help more youths and adults get involved in YMCA programs. That’s by participating in the YMCA of the Northwoods-Eagle River Branch’s third annual “Y Scramble” golf event. The four-person best-ball scramble will take place Tuesday, Sept. 6, at Eagle River Golf Course. The entry fee is $85 per person, $65 per person if an Eagle River Golf Club member, and will include 18 holes, cart, lunch, and dinner. Participants can register as a team or individually. All proceeds will go to the YMCA’s Strong Kids campaign, a financial assistance program which allows community members to participate in YMCA programs who could not otherwise afford to do so. It has been almost eight years since the YMCA of the Northwoods first brought programming to the Eagle River area. The project that started as a Y program outreach was originally located in the old Tula’s building next to Trig’s on Wall Street in Eagle River. As time passed, more and more services and programs were added and the outreach services turned into a program center. In 2007, the Northland Pines School District and the YMCA of the Northwoods worked together to develop an innovative solution to develop the Y and the collaborative arrangement between the school and the Y was created. This arrangement provided benefits for all involved. The school could share its beautiful and wellequipped fitness center with the public through membership at the Y and, in return, the Y would staff it, maintain the equipment and make certain improvements. Today, the Eagle River Branch of the YMCA of the Northwoods has almost 600 members, not counting Northland Pines students who use the facilities at no charge, Silver Sneakers participants or association members who make the branch their home Y. Registration for the golf tournament and lunch start at 11 a.m., with a shotgun start at noon. The event will include hole-in-one awards, including a $10,000 prize from Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, team prizes and raffle prizes. In addition to the YMCA, the event will be sponsored by Gremban & Gremban Dental of Eagle River and One Prospect of Rhinelander. Registration can be completed at ymcaofthenorthwoods.org, by mail or in person at the YMCA of the Northwoods, 1812 Pleasure Island Road, Eagle River, WI 54521. For more information, call the YMCA at (715) 479-9500.

over 400 yards, with Ramesh and Schwenn leading the way,” said Foster. “Our offensive line did a nice job of opening up holes and finishing blocks downfield.” Ramesh had 12 carries for 139 yards and a single touchdown. Schwenn had nine carries for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Ferber led the way with eight solo tackles, two assists and three sacks. Kubacki followed with four solo tackles, two assists and a fumble return for a touchdown. “We did some things well on both sides of the ball,” said the coach. “We had a few too many miscues on offense, which we will need to improve on as we head into conference play, but overall I was pleased with our effort and happy with how some of our younger players stepped up when given the opportunity.” Fritz said he was pleased with some of the performances from his Three Lakes team. “Our skilled position players, Riley Liebscher, Brent LaDuke, Hunter Mathison, Ben Wales, Patrick Levandoski and Jordan Wales did a good job,” he said. “Our major issues were on the offensive line. We were unable to sustain drives and keep the ball out of Pines’ potent offense.” The Eagles, 1-0, are sched-

Pines boys soccer records three wins during first week
The Northland Pines Eagles boys soccer team recorded three wins in the first week of the 2011 season. Pines opened with a 4-0 win at home against Three Lakes last Tuesday. On Saturday, the Eagles came away with a 5-0 win against Chippewa Falls McDonnell and a 4-0 win over Clintonville. Against Three Lakes, the Eagles got their first goal of the year from Jacob Bozic, just seven minutes into the game. The Bluejays played strong through the first half until late, when the Eagles added two goals in the last three minutes. Trevor Laszczkowski got a pass from Matt Meyer for the second goal of the game. Twenty seconds later, a Laszczkowski-to-Dylan Weber combination produced the third goal. Bozic scored his second goal of the day with two seconds remaining in the second half to round out the scoring. Dominic Caroselli and Evan Hartwig combined to make three saves in the net for the Eagles. On Saturday, McDonnell played well against the Eagles in a scoreless first half. But a penalty-kick goal by Alex Camp three minutes into the second half got the Eagles started. From there, Pines took control of the game, with a goal by Meyer and three by Laszczkowski. Good midfield play by Devin Sauvola, Weber, Leif Offerdahl, Duncan Hosking and Mitch Moline helped set up the scoring. Hartwig made four saves in the net for the Eagles. In the second game Saturday, the Eagles jumped to a 30 lead on scores by Meyer, Bozic and Laszczkowski. Bozic tallied another in the second half, but once again, good midfield play set up many good scoring opportunities, according to Pines coach Larry Favorite. “Guys coming in off the bench gave us some good energy in this game,” said Favorite. “Alex Spiess, Cody Droes, Cooper Anderson and Nick Staege gave us good energy while they gained valuable experience at the same time.” The Eagles’ defense got through the first week without giving up a goal. “While the level of competition was not super high this week, it was still pretty good. Our back four guys did a nice job of playing together as a unit. Greg Chamberlain and Steven Vogel, along with senior captains Alex Camp and Scott Moline, did the lion’s share of the work there this week,” said Favorite. “They take pride in what they do, so I was pleased that they contributed to recording three shutouts for the week.” The Eagles, 3-0, will travel to Marquette, Mich., Tuesday of this week for a nonconference game and will face Great Northern Conference opponent Antigo this Thursday, Aug. 25, at 5 p.m. at Antigo. Pines will return home against nonconference opponents Merrill and Kingsford, Mich., Saturday, Aug. 27, with games starting at 10 a.m.

Speed record, winning streaks broken at Eagle River Speedway last Tuesday
This past Tuesday night at Eagle River Speedway, Robby Resch of Antigo matched Jake Reif’s 14.52-second speed record in the Micro Sprints heat race, which was set a week prior. However, the record didn’t last long. In the Micro Sprints feature race, Eagle River’s Mike Hicks shattered the mark on his way to the checkered flag with a 14.40-second lap, becoming the first driver to hit a speed in excess of 95 milesper-hour. Resch took second and Reif took third. In 2010, Tanner Resch of Antigo went through the season undefeated. Resch started this year off with a Junior Sprints feature win. After that first race, Eagle River’s Ty Springer won every Junior Sprints feature. That is, until this past Tuesday night, when Robby Resch passed Springer halfway through the race. Resch held on to get the win and snapped Springer’s undefeated streak. Wyatt McIntyre of Greenland, Mich., took third, while Springer’s 6-year-old sister, Tommi-Jo, took fourth. Another unbeaten streak that fell at the popular stock car track was in Pure Stocks. Rhinelander’s Dustin Miller of Rhinelander also lost his winning streak after suffering a flat tire. Ryan Valeria of Eagle River was able to hold Miller off to break the streak. Dan Schultz of Rhinelander finished third. One of the best races of the season took place in the Bud Lite Street Stocks feature, where Kevin Hartman of Conover got his first career win in a close finish against Eagle River’s Dennis LaCrosse. Officials agreed that Hartman edged LaCrosse by less then a foot at the finish line. Jason Zdroik of Eagle River raced his way to a third straight track championship in the B-Mods. Pete Paulus of Phillips finished second and Jesse Aho of Michigan took third. Tuesday night will be WRJO night at the track, with gates opening at 6 p.m., hot laps starting at 7 p.m. and racing beginning at 7:30 p.m. In the last event of the season, Eagle River Speedway will feature a special Micro-Sprints Shootout Sunday, Sept. 4.

HALL OF FAMERS — The Eagle River/Northland Pines High School Athletic Hall of Fame held its induction ceremony in the high school auditorium last Friday evening. Individuals inducted included (photo at right) athlete Gene E. Staffen and coach Dave Koller. Two girls basketball teams also were inducted, including the 1980-’81 team (above) and the 1979-’80 team (bottom).

Miller Beer of the Northwoods night at TNT Speedway in Three Lakes had a little of everything — high drama in the races for the track championships, a couple of first-time winners, a couple of big wrecks and even a little rain. At the end of the night, Jerry Grasse of Phelps claimed another win in the WISSOTA AMSOIL Dirt Track Series (WADTS) Midwest Modifieds. Argonne’s Leif Gunderson won a wild scramble to the finish in the WADTS Street Stocks. Dan Schultz of Rhinelander claimed a win in the TNT Bombers and John Barlowski of Rhinelander won for the second straight week in the TNT Stingers. More importantly, following the penultimate pointspaying night of the season, the separation between first and second is three points or less in three of the four classes. Bruce Belland entered the WADTS Midwest Modifieds feature two points ahead of Grasse. Both started in the fourth row for the feature. Belland raced for position while Grasse hung back. Grasse’s strategy rewarded him on lap five when Joe Kin spun out of second place, triggering an eight-car wreck. Belland and Jeff McDonald had nowhere to go as the acci-

dent unfolded, and got the worst of it as their wheels interlocked in the crash. Grasse got hit on the right side, but the damage was cosmetic. He was the first damaged car on and off pit road. Eventually Belland’s and McDonald’s cars were separated, but on the restart, Grasse was in fourth and Belland was in ninth. Grasse picked his way through, passing Dennis Mikkelson for the lead on lap 10 and would not be challenged the rest of the way. A lap 16 caution for a spin by Mike Bukovic helped out Belland, who came to the final restart in fifth and moved up quickly. In the end, Belland got to third, but was unable to pass Mikkelson for second. Grasse picked up his fifth win in the last six features and will enter the final night one point ahead of Belland as he looks to wrap up the championship he let slip away last year. All of TNT’s points battles will be decided next Saturday in what promises to be the most dramatic season championship night in the 17-year existence of the track. Fans can watch the drama unfold as hot laps begin at 7 p.m., with racing scheduled for 7:45 p.m. For more information and the latest points standings, visit tntspeedway.com.

The Three Lakes Bluejays soccer team will return 11 letterwinners to the field for the 2011 season. The returning players include seniors Fritz Campbell, Trenten Stefonek, Ross Thorn and Ben Wales; juniors Josh Boschke, Brent LaDuke, Riley Liebscher and Cory Satterfield; and sophomores Kirk Campbell, Jacob Ribbe and Jordan Wales. Last year, Ben Wales was named first team all-conference in the Northern Lights Soccer Conference, while Stefonek made honorable mention. Three Lakes coach Jack Wales said the two players have great speed, strength and athleticism. The coach also said Thorn’s size in the goal will be an advantage to the Jays this season. Citing speed, strength, athleticism and work ethic as the team strengths, coach Wales said the team hopes to finish

Northland Pines Eagles new volleyball coach Margo Rogers-Anderson will build her team around seven returning letterwinners this fall. The Eagles will open the season with a nonconference match at Crandon this Thursday, Aug. 25, starting with freshmen and junior varsity matches at 5:30 p.m. The returnees include seniors Kelsey Bergum and Nicole Sullivan; and juniors Paige Healy, Claire Decker, Carly Bohnen, Abby Alft and Ellie Zyhowski. “Since we’ve only had six practices, I’m still learning their talents and strengths,” said Rogers-Anderson. “We do have some height and quickness on the team.” While the Eagles volleyball program has struggled in the past, Rogers-Anderson said the team is working hard to improve. “They’ve shown me that they want to be successful and that they are willing to work hard to achieve that success,” she said. Rogers-Anderson said she is making some changes to the Eagles’ style of play, bringing a college-type offense and defense to the court.

“We are making some changes,” she said. “We have our hands full learning the 5-1 formation offense and a rotation defense.” Rogers-Anderson is a former UW-Whitewater National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 3 volleyball player, where she received All-American honors. She previously coached in Minnesota for Fairmont Middle School and the Minnesota Junior Volleyball 16’s team. She also is director of golf instruction at Eagle River Golf Course. Assisting the new coach this season are junior varsity coach Skip Niedfeldt and freshmen coach Jessica Miller. Following the game at Crandon, the Eagles will host a triangular next Tuesday, Aug. 30, against Hurley and Bessemer, Mich., starting at 5 p.m. Pines will host another triangular Thursday, Sept. 1, against Three Lakes and Houghton, Mich., also starting at 5 p.m. The first Great Northern Lakes Conference (GNC) game will be Tuesday, Sept. 6, when the Eagles host Mosinee. Tomahawk and Lakeland are expected to be strong in the GNC this season.

Wimpy’s character was ahead of his time
BACK IN 1932, J. Wellington Wimpy of Popeye fame made the now famous offer: “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” Wimpy was slightly ahead of his time. If Mr. Wimpy was to make that offer today, it might be “I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a super-sized bacon cheeseburger, large order of fries and an extra large soda.” It says two things about current Americans. One: We have an unhealthy diet loaded with fat, sugar, salt, calories and preservatives. Two: We can’t pay our bills until some later time. Americans have an insatiable appetite for food and credit. They can be found everywhere. We can’t control our temptation for food because it is readily available, and we like to celebrate every special occasion with a feast of delicious goodies. We discard more food than billions of people have available. Many Americans are engaged in the battle of the bulge, and they are losing. We have so many tasty options morning, noon and night. We wash all that delicious food down with drinks packed with sugar. As a result, we have enormous, expensive health issues. As a country, we have a high rate of obesity, heart dis-

ease, cancer, diabetes and other life-altering problems. We are blessed to have such an array of foods to choose from, but we make unhealthy choices. Second. Our economy is addicted to easy credit. Make no mistake about it, a reasonable dependence on credit is an acceptable thing. But, a majority of people are allowing themselves to be engulfed in debt, and are suffocated by spending using credit. Maybe that is why we are having such a hard time dealing with the problem as a nation? We see massive debt on the national, state and local levels. It affects individuals, businesses and governments. It is hard to say how much debt is too much debt, but we know we are approaching the tipping point. As with most addictions, it is very hard to change our habits. What if I borrow too much money and can’t pay it back? We love to eat and we like to have good things, now! So what if I put on an extra 20 or 50 pounds? If I develop health problems, my doctor will give me drugs to deal with them. If my joints and organs fail, I can have surgery to replace them. If I can’t pay my credit card bills, I can file bankruptcy and then start all over. After all, we’re Americans and we love to consume. Live for the day. * * * DO YOU KNOW there are about 20,000 registered lobbyists in Washington, D.C., most with offices on K Street, and they are flush with money from nearly every major industry and their mission is to do everything they can to influence our 535 members of Congress, and the party in the White House? Expand the lobby effort nationwide and you’ll find over 40,000 men and women who are paid to sway the votes of elected officials at every level.

Our View
The cancer fight continues, but more teams are needed
The 12th annual Northwoods Relay For Life occurred in some of the toughest financial times this country has ever witnessed, but 22 hardworking teams and event volunteers still raised more than $70,000 in the fight against cancer. Though the fundraising goal of $80,000 was dropped 20% from the previous year, it was still pretty ambitious considering an economic downturn that caused massive layoffs, struggling businesses and even closures. Organizers of the event were probably hoping that more teams would step forward than the 25 of last year, moving back toward the days when there were 40 to 45 teams taking up the community fight. We need more teams! But don’t be disheartened, because raising $70,000 for any cause is something to celebrate. It is a testament to the intense civic pride and generosity that exists in Eagle River and surrounding North Woods communities, including Three Lakes, Sugar Camp, St. Germain, Sayner, Land O’ Lakes, Conover and Phelps. The reasons behind this impressive outpouring of volunteer support become clearer when you consider that cancer has probably touched everyone’s life in some way. And for many, the disease has been life altering. It is incredible that this event has already topped the $1 million mark in fundraising, and that it is now well on its way to raising another million dollars. But maybe we shouldn’t be so surprised, considering that facts provided by the American Cancer Society show that 1.3 million Americans each year hear the words, “You have cancer.” We want the 180 survivors who walked the Survivors’ Victory Lap to know that the event wouldn’t be the same without their courageous faces — which really make the battle against cancer a personal one for all of us.

judge panel at the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York has agreed with the bankruptcy trustee (Irving Picard) in the Bernie Madoff massive fraud case. They said the “net losers” cannot claim phantom profits as losses and they cannot recover the fake gains. Lawyers for the victims were trying to recover the phantom gains that never existed. Say an investor gave Madoff $500,000. They received quarterly statements showing the account balance growing to $3 million after 10 years, an incredible gain during a time when stock markets and savings accounts were losing money. Victims were claiming they lost $3 million, which included the phantom gains. The bankruptcy trustee ruled they lost no more than the $500,000 original investment. The trustee has so far recovered about $11 billion. The trustee says the total amount invested was about $17.3 billion. The investors were led to believe that $17 billion had grown to nearly $65 billion, based on the final statement balances. During the Madoff Ponzi scheme run, there were investors who got their money, plus gains, out before the scam was exposed. The trustee and federal prosecuTo McNUTT, Pg. 17A

My summer vacation on the lake
I SOMETIMES think vacations are harder to take than going to work. When you go to work, you know what you have to do, but you go on vacation to have fun and take a break from your everyday life. Good times are more apt to come unexpectedly rather than by design. I explain this to you because I’ve just come back from my annual vacation in upstate New York. I felt a little guilty going away this year because our country is in such a sorry state. Then, I thought, it will be good for the local economy to spend money enjoying myself. So, off I went in July to my summer cottage on the lake. We drink the water from the lake, make coffee from the lake water, swim in it and take our boat three miles across it to a good restaurant at a country club where we are members. I’m not going to tell you the name of the lake because I’d just as soon no one else went there. It’s a great lake but not one of the Great Lakes. The tradition of going to the lake on vacation started when I was young. My parents took me and my sister to the lake almost every summer until I went off to college. I remember a man named George who came to our cottage every other day to deliver a 25-pound block of ice. He put it in the refrigerator, at that time more accurately called the “icebox.” Companies that made “iceboxes” went out of business, but our icebox lasted for decades and still evokes happy memories. George stammered badly, and my sister and I were mindful to be extra kind to him. On a hot day, I’d often take the ice pick and hack off a chunk from the block to put in my mouth. Four friends, two boys and two girls, hung out together all summer and we’d often make ice cream after dinner. To placate our parents, we’d To ROONEY, Pg. 17A

Slowed economic recovery affecting property values
Lingering recessionary times are beginning to have a greater impact on North Woods property values than previous years, as the third straight year of decline during 2010 also marked the first time that property values in Vilas and Oneida counties dropped faster than the state average. According to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, property values dropped nearly 2.8% in Vilas and 5% in Oneida last year, both higher than the state average decline of 1.8%. That’s in contrast to the past two years, when statewide average declines were higher than counties here. However, price corrections seen in Wisconsin are mild compared to some states. Compared to residential values in many parts of Wisconsin, property values in this recreational hub are still very strong. The fact that the Vilas and Oneida counties region is one of the premier vacation and retirement destinations in the country keeps consumer demand and prices relatively high. Our readers should know that lower equalized values don’t automatically equate to higher taxes, because taxes are based on actual levies.

Buck losing its coat as summer wanes

It’s a sign that the seasons are about to change when a young buck starts losing its red summer coat, to be replaced with fine black guard hair that will eventually become thick, hollow hair for winter. Bucks will soon lose the velvet from their antlers, and they’ll use trees to rub it off and polish those antlers. --Staff Photo By KURT KRUEGER

Watch out for the bear traps
THERE IS an old saying concerning idle hands. It’s so old, in fact, that I cannot recall the exact saying, but giving it my best guess, I would say it probably has something to do with lazy people and idle hands not being a good combination. I am unabashedly lazy and all to willing to go through a day with extremely idle hands, so at this time, lacking the ambition to do so, I have not gotten around to looking up the exact quotation, nor do I expect to find the ambition to do so anytime soon. That said, understanding that idle hands are looked down upon by ambitious, hardworking people, I can say that last weekend, my hands were anything but idle. The weekend started early — on Thursday to be exact —

when I pushed my Old Town out onto a favorite little lake that requires a half-mile walk pulling a canoe on a twowheel carriage to get to it. Once on the lake, I found largemouth bass and bluegills more than willing to do battle. The largemouth, up to 16 inches long, were fun to catch on plastic-tailed jigs, but it was the bluegills, several approaching 10 inches in length, that I was most interested in. Over a span of two hours, I caught perhaps upward of

100 bluegills, keeping a dozen ranging from 8 to 10 inches in length. Once the fish were caught, it was back home for my two non-idle hands, where the fish were cleaned, the hands washed carefully and another mission undertaken posthaste. That second mission, which was repeated on Saturday, involved heading out to what once was a very secret spot filled with blackberry bushes which, this year, are literally overflowing with huge, delicious berries. As most of you know, secret berry patches are held in the strictest confidence, guarded as closely as a honey hole for a jag of prime firewood, a wooded glen filled with morel mushrooms or a To MAINES, Pg. 17A

OP-ED/READER OPINION Anti-ATV movement here Maines FROM PAGE 16A comes from left extremists
Letter to the Editor: Anti-all-terrain vehicle (ATV) activist Sue Drum writes a long letter again, demonizing ATVs and making statements that show how uninformed and out of touch she actually is. The fact that Vilas County sales tax receipts are down 15% for year 2010, under 2008, far outweighs all the data and opinion she wrote while saying, “Vilas County economy isn’t broken.” I don’t believe Vilas County’s economy is broken, but it certainly is hurting and could use some help. The facts are: Vilas County’s economy can use all the help it can get. Ask any business owner. ATV routes work fine in other states and counties and will certainly help the Vilas County economy. Safety of ATV routes is not an issue in other Wisconsin and Michigan counties or other states throughout our country. Bicycles and ATVs are compatible on roads. Only a selfish, disgruntled person could want to “reserve” an entire county for themselves. Roads belong to all the people and no one should dictate which legal activity can or cannot use them with just cause. The letter headline says it all, “Do Vilas County citizens want ATV takeover?” Sounds like fear mongering to me. The letter reflects a farleft extremist viewpoint, pushing fear of ATVs. Farleft extremists are the reason why we have very little activity developing our oil and natural gas resources in this country, resulting in our being hostage to high energy prices. This will need to change before our country’s economy will ever recover. The manmade global warming issue is another example of the fraud created by these extreme activists. It comes down to what motivates these radicals — their passion to remove all petroleum-powered vehicles from the Earth. In my opinion, there is a connection of the far-left movement and the local ATV issue. Roger Flaherty Conover backwoods pond loaded with wood ducks. I used to have such a secret spot, but a couple of years ago, some dastardly persons stumbled upon that spot and, much to my chagrin, picked danged near every berry I was saving until they were at the perfect peak of ripeness. Needless to say, when I returned to do some picking, there was little left but a few wizened, shriveled-up berries about as sweet as the old crone who tried to teach me English poetry my first year of college. Last year, despite close monitoring, those dastardly persons again beat me to picking, hitting the berry patch day after day after day, leaving nothing for this old-timer. Well, this year, I fixed their wagon. I didn’t wait for the berries to reach their peak. I didn’t wait until each bush was practically dripping with knuckle-length blackberries you can fill a No. 3 coffee can with in less than 15 minutes. No sir, this year, I adhered to the old adage that the person who gets there the firstest gets the mostest. And I got plenty. I picked for two hours on Thursday and another two on Saturday, with 12 big jars of freezer jam and a bunch of bags full of whole berries in the freezer to show for it. Now, I didn’t get those berries for nothin’. Like all good things that come from the wild, I had to suffer for my berries. See, blackberries, like most berries, require you to do a due amount of suffering before you fill a bucket. Only they’re worse than most. Even if you wear two sweat shirts — one over the other — wool long johns underneath leather brush pants and goatskin gloves, you are going to get ripped to shreds if you want to pick blackberries. I was lucky last weekend. I only needed two pints of plasma and a quart and a half of

type O by the time I finished picking my first six gallons of berries. By the time I was done, my hands looked like a pair of cross-stitched doodads, and I had more rips, tears and holes in my hide than Carters has pills. Half the hair was torn off my head and one ear was shredded like a bobcat with anger management problems had got hold of it, while the other was merely torn up a little. The important thing was, I got the berries. I beat the interlopers. And speaking of interlopers, though I would never stoop to naming names — Barbie and Bonnie, you know who you are — they may want to be careful about where they pick next time out. I’m not implying I would do anything, but my cousin, the old-timer trapper, lent me a half-dozen bear traps he said he wouldn’t be needing for a while. You know the kind — takes six men and a boy to set them and, when they grab hold of a

body, usually about knee high on the leg, they don’t let go. I’m probably not the kind of guy who would take drastic measures to protect a berry patch, but maybe, if I were you, leetle ladies, I might be purty durn careful about where I set my next foot down were I to be picking in one particular berry patch. Might be there’d be nothing to worry about, but then again . . . I’m just saying. But to get back to my original point, between catching fish, picking berries and making freezer jam, my hands were anything but idle last weekend. In the coming weeks, they’ll probably be even busier. I mean, there will be early season geese to hunt, partridge scouting to do and more berry picking. If I get all that stuff done — and don’t have to pull any bear traps off of unsuspecting berry patch interlopers — I might even find time to look up an old saying about idle hands.

Property values will sink with addition of ATV trails
Dear Editor: The irony of last week’s front page (Aug. 17 edition) is amazing to me. Over morning coffee I read the headline, “Property values dip again” . . . “for the third straight year.” I assume this is because of the recession. To the right of a picture of a beautiful tiger muskie I hope was released, I found “Phelps sets ATV forum for routes.” This set what is left of my mind wondering just how much lower our county property values will sink if ATVs are allowed to take over. In these troubled financial times, banks will be taking a really hard look at this number before granting a home equity loan. If any of this makes sense to you, please show up at the Phelps School gym on Monday, Aug. 29, at 7 p.m. and give your two minutes’ worth. It’s got to be more entertaining than television. Bill Boscamp Land O’ Lakes

Change tax law to build fund
Letter to the Editor: Is the Social Security fund really going broke? Can this fund remain solvent for the next 75 years without reducing benefits or changing the age requirements? Here are the facts reported by the Social Security Administration: 1. The fund has accumulated a surplus up until 2008 of $2.4 trillion. In 2009, it had a surplus of $121 billion. The surplus will continue until about 2030, when income will equal and then become less than money paid out. 2. This fund is paid for from a payroll tax of 12.4%, shared by the employee and the employer. If this tax rate was increased by 1.9% or .95% by the employee and .95% by the employer, the fund would remain solvent for the next 75 years without any benefit changes. Write your congressman and ask them why they do not change the income tax law by increasing revenue very slightly instead of reducing benefits significantly. David L. Sweeney Three Lakes

Safety still an issue with ATVs
Dear Editor: I am adamantly against the use of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) here in the North Woods both on trails and highways. I oppose the use because of the noise, nuisance factor and safety factor. Their small size enables them to go wherever they please, and they do! Let’s not add any more to the equation. I am quite passionate about this issue, and I have spent too much time and money already on this. I believe the Phelps Town Board will be pushing this through regardless of the way the survey turns out. As you have seen, they did not even see fit to have the survey in the paper. We have an ATV forum coming up in Phelps on Aug. 29, but it has been diminished to one night, two minutes per speaker (we had been led to believe we had two nights, one pro-ATV, one con-ATV). The ATV routes haven’t saved businesses in either Land O’ Lakes nor Forest County, and I don’t believe they will do anything but hurt the Phelps area. There is to be a new grocery store, the pharmacy will be taken over by new owners and the nursing home has another breath of air. I have just discovered some pertinent safety issues and statements regarding the negative safety factor of ATV use on paved roads. The Specialty Vehicle Institute of America (SVIA) takes this position: ATVs are not designed, manufactured or in any way intended for use on public streets, roads or highways. The SVIA urges that highway use of ATVs be prohibited and law enforcement efforts be strengthened to eliminate this dangerous practice. The U.S. Consumer Safety Commission opposes the operation of ATVs on paved roads. A commission message states: ATVs should not be driven on paved roads. Please go to ATV safety at https://sites.google.com/northwoodscitizen. These are facts the public should know. Thank you, Rod Whitehead Phelps they fell for the unbelievable claims anyway. Many people believe the whole Wall Street market casino is stacked against the average investor as the huge hedge funds and the computer-generated trades make it impossible to get a fair market. So, we have the circus in Washington and the casino in New York City. Be wary of false promises.

A large crowd of spectators, competitors and volunteers gathered on the north shore of Franklin Lake last weekend to enjoy the fifth annual Franklin Freestyle Wakeboard Tournament hosted by Camp Nicolet. Billed as a five-star grassroots event, the competition was sanctioned by USA Water Ski and the American Water Ski and Wakeboard Association. Spectators participated in active beach games with prizes, as well as raffles and drawings for an array of items donated by area businesses. Meanwhile, the field of wakeboarders took advantage of the outstanding riding conditions on Frankline Lake. The Big Double Up contest was the final competition and featured worldclass rider Jordan Gensler of Three Lakes. The tournament weekend began at Wild Eagle Lodge with a performance provided by the Milwaukee Summerfest group, the Dave Fitzpatrick Band. “We feel so fortunate that musicians of this caliber have repeatedly contributed their time and talent for a worthy cause,” said Anissa Widule, tournament chairwoman. Both the Saturday evening music and the Sunday tournament were fundraising events with all proceeds donated to the Christopher Starz Leadership Memorial. The Starz family established the charitable fund after Christopher’s tragic death in 2006 in order to provide youngsters with outdoor and academic leadership opportunities. “Chris was a nationallevel wakeboarder, alpine ski competitor, scholar, musician and outdoor adventurer who had such a positive impact on people of all ages,” said Georgi Starz, Chris’ mother. “Friends and family wanted

A readers’ theater presentation of the speech “We Can Do It,” written by the National Women’s History Project, a story of the campaign for women’s suffrage, will be presented. “One of the questions in the speech asks how many of us are familiar with the details of the woman suffrage movement in this country,” said Debra Ketchum Jircik, director of Many Ways of Peace. “The answer, unfortunately, is not many which is why we’re dedicated to telling the story of women’s perseverance and determination for more than 72 years to win the right to vote,” she added.

It is within us
It is Sunday and it is hot. I took the dog for a walk at 11 a.m., thinking it would not have heated up yet. But alas, the humidity and the temperatures drove both of us back home to the comfort of our air-conditioned house. I hear people complaining about the heat and in the winter we complain about the cold. In the spring we complain about the rain and mud. I rarely hear people complain about autumn except to mention that winter follows in its tracks. Autumn is perfect as far as I am concerned. Flowers are still blooming. Trees are in full color. The air is crisp and cool, the sky is blue. Now who can complain about that? But if we had four seasons of autumn, wouldn’t we lose our appreciation for its loveliness? It is like too much chocolate or too much of anything. It loses its appeal. We Americans tend to do too much of things. We buy too much, we spend too much, we run around too much, we eat too much, we probably complain too much and I am sure there are many more instances of “too much.” As one ages, one tends to tone that down considerably. We, the older generation, need less, eat less, buy less and hopefully complain less. I guess consuming too much is, in many cases, about trying to fill ourselves with happiness, but that really does not work. The new fancy car, the big house, the new clothes — none of those can bring happiness that is real or that lasts. They only make us feel good for a short while. Nothing in a store can make us truly happy. Nothing. Happy flows from within. We To FRIEDEL-HUNT, Pg. 3B

From offering noon meals to lively bingo nights, Kalmar Senior Community Center has come a long way in the past 25 years. A 25th anniversary celebration will be held Sunday, Aug. 28, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the center, located at 1011 N. Railroad St. in Eagle River. Entertainment will be provided by Brett & Frisk. Refreshments will be served and a 50/50 drawing will be held. A photo display will depict the history of the center, which was originally purchased in April 1986. It all began with the Older American Act of 1965 and the idea of seniors helping seniors. In response to the congressional act, the Vilas County Commission on Aging was formed and a director was hired to carry out the various programs that would be deemed beneficial for North Woods seniors. One of those programs was the nutritional meals site. The noon lunches began in the late 1970s in the lower level of Golden Eagle Restaurant in Eagle River. Seniors took their handcrafted items to the lunches to

share what they made with the other attendees. This prompted an idea to have a place for the seniors to sell these crafts and soon the idea of the Senior Craft Shop was born. It became apparent that the seniors were enjoying the added activities and they were invited to volunteer with other area organizations and activi-

ties. A charter membership was drawn up and Senior Eagle River Volunteer Enterprise Inc. (SERVE) was incorporated in 1980. A board of directors was organized with bylaws. The intent was to increase membership and encourage more seniors to volunteer for activities and services.

The group had a future vision for a building that would provide services and activities for the seniors as well as the community. “We had meals, but not a place to stay after we ate to socialize,” said Marion Schoofs, one of the founding members of To KALMAR, Pg. 4B

Pamida offers back-to-school supply program
Pamida Foundation will hold its Back-to-School program in Pamida stores across the Midwest. The program raises money for schools in Pamida communities. The funds raised will be distributed to schools for the purchase of school supplies for underprivileged children. Throughout August, customers may donate $1 or round up their purchase at their local Pamida store. The Pamida Foundation will match up to $250 per community during the program. The foundation also will donate 5% of sales made Sunday, Aug. 21. The additional funding will go to a local school designated by the store. In 2010, the foundation supported more than 900 charitable organizations and provided more than $1.1 million in funding to local communities, including more than $270,000 toward education.

Huebner receives award for service to 4-H clubs
MaryAnn Huebner was nominated by the UW-Extension 4-H program and was awarded the President’s Call to Service Award, also called the Lifetime Achievement Award, at a ceremony luncheon in June. The President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in their communities and to encourage more people to serve. The council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. This award is presented to individuals who have provided more than 4,000 hours of community service. Huebner was nominated based on her 40-plus years of dedicated service to the youths and adults working with local 4-H clubs and events as a leader and member of the Oneida County 4-H Leader’s Association. Huebner worked with the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, American Cancer Society, the Oneida County Fair and other organizations. Huebner was one of three individuals in the state of Wisconsin to receive the award this year.

Author Lynne Austin of Waukesha will be at Grandma’s Toy Box, in Eagle River Saturday, Sept. 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a book signing of her book, “Edith Ann Marie The Sun is in My Heart.” Austin’s work has been published in spiritual magazines in the Midwest throughout the 1990s. The book is about the relationship between a grandmother and granddaughter. “Since Grandparents Day is Sept. 11, I wanted to honor grandparents and encourage them to step out for the book signing,” said Austin. “I can’t imagine my life without my grandparents. The memories gave me more than just something to think about. It’s the foundation of who I am today,” she said. Grandma’s Toy Box is located at 223 E. Wall St. in downtown Eagle River.

All those new high-tech toys like iPods, flat-screen TVs that take up half the room, iPads and more (and believe me, I like them all) have absolutely no ability to make us happy. We can enjoy them, more at first, but true happiness is deeper than the screen of a flat-screen TV. So what does bring happiness? Well, as I said, happiness comes from within.

Kalmar: senior center opened in June of 1986
FROM PAGE 1B
SERVE. “After looking at several locations, we decided that we wanted a location in the city with conveniences nearby,” she shared. The group began saving money for a building fund and had several fundraising events over the period of a few years. After many months of searching, a factory on Highway 45 North became available for purchase. “The location and size was right and there was parking. With the rough finish and factory setting, we had much to do, but we committed,” said Schoofs. The building was originally a dance hall, became a roller rink, a snowmobile sales and repair service and eventually a factory known as Simpson Electric. Members of the original SERVE group agreed to pledge some of their own money toward the mortgage. There were 21 members at that time who worked practically around the clock to clean and remodel the center. “We saved every piece of wood and straightened nails to be reused. Women worked right along with the men, all volunteers,” Schoofs shared. With the help and generosity of community members, area businesses and work of SERVE members, the present Kalmar Senior Center opened in June 1986. The center was named after Col. Norman and Ethel Kalmar, who were the group’s largest benefactors. Schoofs said that Kalmar had asked the SERVE members what their primary source of income would be to support the center. It was then that it was decided that it would be bingo. “The first Monday night bingo was memorable,” recalled Schoofs. “We had big crowds and everyone was learning.” During the first few years, 250 to 300 people attended the bingo nights, according to Schoofs. The Kalmars, who are both deceased now, presented a check for the balance of the center’s mortgage in May 1989 and a mortgage-burning ceremony was held. In the fall of 2008, SERVE was notified that the center had to be updated to become compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Chuckel, Pines earn ‘Olympics’ awards
Jessica Chuckel of Eagle River will receive the Agency Manager of the Year Award and Northland Pines School District will receive the Organization of the Year Award at the Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) awards ceremony Saturday, Sept. 24, in Wausau. The agency manager award is given each year to an individual who best displays the leadership and organizational skills needed to manage a well-run local Special Olympics program. According to Jerry Lyon, regional director of development for SOWI, Chuckel has led the way for positive growth of the Northern Access agency, recruiting more than 50 volunteers, raising ample funds for the agency, and starting a Young Athletes program. “She also helped organize a ‘Spread the Word to End the Word’ pep rally to build awareness of the harmful effects of using the word ‘retard’ at the local high school,” said Lyon. “Her dedication has made the Northern Access Special Olympics one of the best agencies in the North Central Special Olympics area and they have barely gotten off the ground!” The organization award is given each year to a group that demonstrates great support for the Special Olympics. According to SOWI agency manager Chuckel, the organization’s teachers, staff and students have supported the establishment of their local agency by helping coordinate events, volunteering at sports events, and recruiting athletes. “Northland Pines School

The updates required additional funding and, after applying for a grant which was declined, a major fundraiser was organized with the help of Bill Hassey. Hassey and his orchestra donated the musical entertainment and Friendship House Family Restaurant donated all of the meat that was served that evening. Many other organizations and businesses contributed, as well. The result was a successful fundraiser dance with more than 300 guests in attendance, giving SERVE a great start toward the funds needed for the ADA project, which began in fall 2009 and was completed in April 2010. The Kalmar center is run completely by volunteers who are members of SERVE. There are currently 239 members and the group continues to grow. Money needed to operate the center has always been generated through the many fundraising events, without the benefit of any tax dollars. Fundraisers are held throughout the year, the largest of which is bingo held Mondays from May through October. Other events include flea markets, brat fries, Trash N’ Treasure sales, dances, card parties and more. Some of the activities include movie days, Green Bay Packers football parties, potlucks, members-only bingo during fall and winter months

District has provided athletes, their families and friends, as well as the community at large, the opportunity to recognize and accept differences while experiencing firsthand the true meaning of pure happiness,” said Chuckel. The school district also raises funds for local athletes by holding events such as brat fries and bake sales and participating in the Polar Plunge. Last winter, the school held a pep rally to build awareness of and honor athletes who made it to the state bowling competition. SOWI provides year-round training and competition opportunities through 18 different Olympic-type sports for nearly 10,000 individuals with cognitive disabilities.

buy fruit baskets for shut-ins and goody bags for Head Start children as well as a monetary donation to Warm The Children. Last year’s donation was more than $1,000. In addition, the group awards scholarships annually with funds raised from parking fees collected during the World Championship Snowmobile Derby held in January each year. The Kalmar Visitors group makes its rounds to spend time with the residents at area nursing homes. The center houses the Vilas County Commission on Aging’s nutrition program with meals served Mondays through Fridays at noon. A bus is available for anyone who needs transportation to the center or to shop. “There is usually something going on at Kalmar. This is the purpose of the center — it is a facility that all the community may come in to enjoy,” said Kalmar activities director Sandy Anderson. Anderson and her husband, Don, who is the current president of SERVE, became involved 10 years ago. “If you want to be paid back triplefold, I’d recommend working with all of these people,” said Sandy Anderson. The upcoming anniversary celebration is a culmination of years of all-volunteer work, and SERVE members welcome the entire community to its 25th anniversary celebration.

LIFESTYLE Ministry announces expansion of electronic health record program
Ministry Health Care has announced that the Ministry Medical Group (MMG) clinic locations in Rhinelander have gone live with the Electronic Health Record (EHR), beginning with the women’s health department, followed by family medicine; rheumatology; physical medicine; interventional radiology; internal medicine; pediatrics; neurology; ear, nose and throat; audiology; surgery and radiation oncology. The EHR is scheduled to be fully operational in all Northern Region MMG departments by November. The MMG in Tomahawk was the first site to implement the EHR in November 2009, followed by the MMG in Eagle River, Woodruff, Crandon and Laona in March. There are many electronic health record systems in the market place. The decision to choose CattailsMD™ EHR was made because Ministry said it was in the best interest of the patients it serves throughout north central Wisconsin. CattailsMD EHR will allow MMG, Ministry hospitals and Marshfield Clinic to be fully integrated with a common electronic health record. Collectively, the two organizations provide patient care to many of the same patients and provide service to much of the same geographical area. The combination of Ministry and Marshfield records will create the largest patient database in the state of Wisconsin with 2.5 million patients and more than 1,000 clinicians sharing access to those records. Implementation of the EHR represents the strategic direction of how Ministry Health Care will provide health services in the future. The EHR is one of Ministry’s biggest and singlemost important patient safety initiatives. According to Ministry, following are a few of the most commonly asked questions: Who will have access to information? As always, the privacy of health information is strictly protected. Only medical providers and personnel directly involved will access the EHR. The computer systems routinely audit and monitor if and how information is being accessed. How will information be protected? Many security measures, including routine auditing and monitoring of access, are in place to protect information. These security measures meet or exceed all state and federal laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which mandates that safeguards be implemented to protect patient health information. What happens if records need to be transferred? Health record information may be printed for transfer to a non-Ministry or Marshfield Clinic facility or to a Ministry facility that has not yet transitioned to the new system. Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care facilities that have already starting using the CattailsMD EHR will automatically be able to access the EHR. Will patients be able to access their EHR? Patients can always access their personal health record by contacting their local medical record department at any Ministry hospital or clinic. As the CattailsMD EHR is populated with comprehensive patient information, Ministry plans to provide an online patient portal that would allow secure, confidential access to a patient’s EHR. What is e-prescribing? Electronic prescribing or “eprescribing” is a way of prescribing medications that is paperless. More specifically, it is when a clinician uses a computer with software that has been tested and certified to electronically access the patient’s prescription benefit and prescription history and electronically route the prescription to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. Ministry has used the CattailsMD EHR in central Wisconsin at Ministry Saint Clare’s Hospital and at several MMG offices, as well as Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, for many years. All Ministry Medical Group providers and all Ministry hospitals in north central Wisconsin will be added to the CattailsMD EHR system within the next few years.

Exhibit depicts everyday life in China
Presque Isle Community Library will showcase the work of photographer Stephen Radtke of Shanghai, China, and summer resident of Eagle River. The exhibit will run through Aug. 31. His work features villagers doing everyday activities as they have for thousands of years. The exhibit is a look into China off the tourist path. Radtke stated that he had always had an interest in photography. He took a traditional route of getting an engineering degree in school, worked for a multinational company and moved around the United States with family. He said he never really grabbed the camera to tell a story until the last 10 to 15 years. “With the family relocating several years ago to Shanghai, China, it gave me the opportunity to really concentrate and have fun with photography. After having the opportunity to be in a few exhibits and my work presented at various charity auctions, I decided to teach photography in Shanghai. Soon after I started teaching, I was approached to partner in a photography tour company for China, based in Shanghai. I jumped at the chance to take photographers of all levels to the distant corners of China,” he said. The Presque Isle library, located on School Loop Road in Presque Isle, is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 to noon.

Tuition reciprocity program continues with Minnesota
The Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB) announced Monday that the 2011-’12 administrative memorandum for the MinnesotaWisconsin Interstate Tuition Reciprocity Program has been signed by Minnesota. The Reciprocity Program will continue to serve Wisconsin residents who choose to go to Minnesota for their college education. “This new tuition reciprocity agreement with the state of Minnesota makes college education more affordable for Wisconsin residents,” said Gov. Scott Walker. “Smaller tuition bills widen access to higher education, and that’s a win-win situation for students and Wisconsin.” The Minnesota-Wisconsin Interstate Tuition Reciprocity Program is an agreement between Wisconsin and Minnesota. It allows Wisconsin residents to attend state universities, colleges and technical colleges in Minnesota at in-state rates as specified in the agreement. Minnesota residents have the same opportunities for attending Wisconsin schools. More than 10,000 Wisconsin residents take advantage of this program each year. Participation in this program is not automatic. While all Wisconsin residents are eligible, there is an application form that must be completed and processed by HEAB. The application for the 2011-’12 academic year is available on HEAB’s website: heab.wi.gov. Interested residents should contact their high school, the Minnesota college they are considering, or HEAB to obtain additional information.

Rustic Rhythm Music Jam to return for second year
The group Different Drums of Ireland will return to the North Woods Saturday, Aug. 27, to headline the second annual Rustic Rhythm — A Northwoods Music Jam at the Boulder Junction baseball park. “We’re ecstatic about having Different Drums of Ireland return for another performance,” said Theresa Smith, executive director of the Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce. “For the past three years, Different Drums of Ireland has been a crowdpleaser. This year, we’re excited to see them again, alongside some of our area’s best talent.” Formed in 1991, the group performed around the world, including for U.S. and Irish presidents. But few areas can claim to have influenced Different Drums of Ireland like Boulder Junction has. After visiting for the first time, the band was inspired by the town’s natural beauty to write songs about the area. Along with Different Drums, the groups Blue Winds Dancing and Copper Box also will perform, with shows beginning at 2 p.m. Gates at the Boulder Junction ballpark will open at 1:30 p.m. Also on hand at the event will be native and old-world arts and crafts displays and demonstrations, featuring handmade cultural and historical items, as well as food and beverages. Tickets are available at the chamber office, McGann’s Café & Wine Bar, Camp Holiday and Molly’s Homestead. Preshow tickets cost $20 for adults, $10 for youths 6 to 16 years old, and are free for children 5 and younger. Ticket prices will increase $5 the day of the show. For more information on Rustic Rhythm — A Northwoods Music Jam, contact Smith at (715) 385-2400, email boulderjct@ boulderjct.org or visit boulderjct.org.

Ministry emergency department hosts Haitian medical student
Last year, in the wake of the earthquake that devastated Haiti, two members of the emergency department staff from Howard Young Medical Center took part in a medical mission trip as part of Vision of Hope Ministries in Eagle River. Maria Romanenko, M.D., and Lori Goff, RN, both from the emergency department of the hospital, spent a week to assist with recovery efforts. The hospital sent along medicine, supplies and scrubs to assist with the effort. During their week in Haiti, the two worked in a temporary medical clinic in Berard, a remote area near Cap Haitien on the northern part of the island. The area had become home to many displaced refugees from Port-au-Prince. Working in a tent hospital, the group treated skin infections, urinary tract infections, untreated injuries caused by the earthquake and a number of other health-related issues. It was during their first hours there that they met Kinsly Fidele, a Haitian medical student studying in the Dominican Republic. Fidele volunteered to assist the group as they prepared for their trip across the mountains to Haiti. He served as a translator and made sure their bus transportation was in order for the border crossing. Fidele was in his final year of medical school with plans to return to his hometown in Haiti when his schooling was completed. Romanenko remained in touch with Fidele, sending him medical books written in English and providing some financial assistance so he could continue to finish his studies uninterrupted. Fidele grew up in a small town called Pignon in the northern part of Haiti. With little money but a great desire to help the people around him, he worked as a painter to earn his way through school. His father and the pastor of a local church also contributed what they could. Fidele had to learn Spanish in order to attend medical school and, along the way, he learned to speak English, both languages self-taught. Earlier this year, Romanenko arranged for Fidele to spend 10 days in the United States to experience the emergency department at Howard Young Medical Center to learn more about emergency medicine and clinical practice. During the visit, he also had an opportunity to see many other areas of the hospital to better understand how health-care services are provided in this country. When he completes his studies, Fidele will return to Pignon to set up a medical clinic. One of the first issues he must address is helping the people of his community obtain clean drinking water. The people of his village obtain water from a nearby river and springs, but often the water is not pure, causing health issues. He is devoted to the people of his community and hopes one day to see other improvements to the place where he grew up. The efforts of staff at Howard Young Medical Center will help his vision to be realized.

Freedom 5K Fun Run raises $5,400
The seventh annual Freedom 5K Fun Run was held last month in St. Germain. The event was started in 2005 in an effort to raise money for the St. Germain Bike and Hike Trail. Last week, race officials presented a check to the Bike and Hike Committee in the amount of $5,400. This represented the largest single donation in the history of the event, bringing the seven-year total to $16,082. Funds raised in this year’s event will be used for signage and grass seed for the recently completed Phase II section of the trail. In addition to a recordbreaking donation, course records and participation records were also shattered on race day, with 295 participants representing 17 states and at least three foreign countries. Top male finisher was Brian Begalke of Chicago, Ill., with a new course record of 16 minutes, 33 seconds. The first female across the finish line was Sylvia Bedford of Fairview, Utah, setting a new women’s record of 19:37. Trophies were awarded to the top overall male and female finishers, with medals going to the top three in each of eight age categories. The 1-kilometer Kids’ Run, for children age 12 and younger, saw an increase in participation from 18 runners in 2010 to 66 for the 2011 event. Children ran through the short course along with Uncle Sam and an American eagle, and received ribbons and other prizes at the end of the race. A tie for first place in the boys division went to Ty Gerstenberger of Tomahawk and Jake O’Hara of St. Charles, Ill.; Nicole Cullen of Oxford, Iowa, won the girls division. This year’s sponsors included gold sponsors Eagle Waste & Recycling Inc., Marshfield Clinic, St. Germain Chamber of Commerce and the McGill family. Silver sponsors were Waldmann Construction Inc., Roundy’s Pick ’n Save, and the Sayner-St. Germain Fish and Wildlife Club. Bronze sponsors included Black Bear Lodge, Cathy’s Ice Cream & Candy, Chain of Lakes Cyclery, Cut to Perfection Salon, Eagle Falls Adventure Golf, Fath’s Big Woods Resort, First National Bank, Hawk’s Nest Canoe Outfitters, M&I Bank, Road ID, Northwoods Children’s Museum, Northwoods Shell, Red Canoe Coffee Co., St. Germain Lioness Club, St. Germain Subway, WalkAbout Paddle & Apparel and Whispering Pines Lodge. Complete results can be found at freedom5k.org.

The Demmer Library and Three Lakes Center for the Arts in the Northwoods welcomes the public to experience the beauty of the North Woods set to music through the nature photography of Tom Bredesen. This program will be held Wednesday, Aug. 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the Three Lakes Center for the Arts, located at 1760 Superior St. No registration is required for the free event, and concessions will be available for purchase. The focus of Bredesen’s nature photography is northern Wisconsin, and he specializes in ice images captured along local river shores. His photos are available online at artwanted.com/buckwheat. For more information about this program or to renew or request books, contact the library, located at 6961 W. School St. in Three Lakes, at demmerlibrary.org or (715) 546-3391.

Application forms are being sent to all homes with a notice to parents or guardians. To apply for free or reduced price meals or free milk, households must fill out the application and return it to the school (unless notified at the start of the school year that children are eligible through direct certification). Additional copies are available at the office in each school. The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by agency or other program officials. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year. To obtain free or reduced price meals or free milk for children in a household where one or more household members receive FoodShare, FDPIR, or Wisconsin Works (W-2) cash benefits, list the household member and the FoodShare, FDPIR or W-2 case number, list the names of all schoolchildren, sign the application, and return it to the school office. For the school officials to determine eligibility for free or reduced price meals or free milk of households not receiving FoodShare, FDPIR or W-2 cash benefits, the household must provide the following information requested on the application: names of all household members, and the Social Security number of the adult household member who signs the application. In lieu of a Social Security number, the household may indicate that the signer does not possess a Social Security number. Also, the income received by each household member must be provided by amount and source (wages, welfare, child support, etc.). Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal and free milk policy, Michele Brown, Determining Official, will review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling of the official, he/she may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. If the parent/guardian wishes to make a formal appeal, he/she may make a request either orally or in writing to: Randy Ingram, Board President and Hearing Official, 7660 Lone Pine Road, Eagle River, WI 54521, phone (715) 272-1711. If a hearing is needed to appeal the decision, the policy contains an outline of the hearing procedure. If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the family should contact the school. Such changes may make the household eligible for reduced price meals or free meals or free milk if the household income falls at or below the levels shown above, and they may reapply at that time. Children formally placed in foster care are also eligible for free meal benefits. Foster children may be certified as eligible without a household application. Households with foster children and non-foster children may choose to include the foster child as a household member, as well as any personal income available to the foster child, on the same application that includes their non-foster children. The information provided by the household on the application is confidential. Public Law 103-448 limits the release of student free and reduced price school meal eligibility status to persons directly connected with the administration and enforcement of federal or state educational programs. Consent of the parent/guardian is needed for other purposes such as waiver of textbook fees. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Adjudication, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20250-9410 or call toll free (866) 632-9992 (Voice).

The recent 14th annual Picnic in the Park, a chicken-andrib barbecue sponsored by the Northwoods Living Care Foundation (NLCF) to raise funds for Phelps Ambulance Service, was another success, according to organizers. Nancy Steenport, treasurer of Northwoods Living Care Foundation, said the Aug. 9 event raised approximately $8,000 for the ambulance fund and the volunteer emergency medical technicians (EMTs). “Once again, a wide range of folks, including many of our summer residents, pitched in to help,” said Steenport. “As she did last year, Connie Coccia gave a significant donation in memory of her late husband, Michel Andre ‘Mike’ Coccia.” The $8,000 raised this year brings to $136,700 the total amount raised for the Phelps Ambulance Service. “The hard work of many in our area has really paid off,” said Cathy Grady, president of NLCF. “A little more than a year ago, our town was able to purchase a new high-tech ambulance at a cost of $130,727. Because of Picnic in the Park, NLCF was able to donate $50,727 toward the purchase of the new ambulance, and the town of Phelps paid the balance. That ambulance replaced the old ambulance purchased in 2002. In 2002, we were able to donate $45,053.” In the last decade, through the efforts of all those who pitch in to stage Picnic in the Park, NLCF has given a total of $95,780 to help provide emergency ambulance service to families in Phelps, Alvin, Nelma and Hiles, plus mutual-aid agreements with Conover, Eagle River, Land O’ Lakes and Iron River, Mich. Grady said all 550 tickets for Picnic in the Park were sold. “Unfortunately,” she stated, “we had to turn a few people away simply because our supply of ribs and chicken was depleted. And, as always, we express thanks to our major benefactor, Greg Cousins of Smoky Lake. Greg donates all the meat, and then he and his crew of volunteer chefs do the

The six winners of the $500 cash prizes were Dru Claar, Brian Saucke, Tom Rail and Brett Mutter, all of Phelps, along with Kay Sarauer of Conover, and Arlene Peterson of Wausau. Charles Green of Green Valley, Ariz., won $250. Barry Mohr, owner of Phelps Convenience Center, donated to the Phelps Ambulance Fund $5 for each Picnic in the Park ticket purchased at the convenience center. In all, 106 tickets were sold at the convenience center, and Mohr donated a total of $530. “As is the case every year, there are so many people and organizations to whom we are grateful,” said Grady. “The NorthStar Health System medical center in Iron River put on the best health fair we’ve ever had. Members of their staff issued free blood pressure checks, sugar checks, heel bone density scans and oxygen checks, plus giving out chits for free cholesterol checks. NorthStar also con-

tributed all the paper products we used. “Carole Selin, supervisor of the emergency medical technicians, and her staff of volunteers set up everything to get us ready to open the doors. They and so many of our Phelps volunteer firefighters then stay on late that night to clean up Wavering Park,” added Grady. “The EMTs from Alvin drove over to deliver tables and benches for us to use. All the women’s clubs and auxiliaries in Phelps pitch in to bake and then serve all desserts. The Great Lakes Climbing group did a great job in setting up a variety of games and entertainment for the kids, including a bungee jumper, a climbing wall and an obstacle course.” Grady said there also was other popular entertainment. “No Picnic in the Park event would be complete without the annual appearance of that great musical group, The Hits from Appleton, and without Tutu Cute the clown, who entertains the kids with her face paintings and special balloon twists,” she said.

WNAXLP Largay won her two trophies for the women’s longest drive and her closest to the pin on a par three. Forty-eight golfers participated in the tournament, sponsored by the Big Sand Lake Club, to raise funds for the town of Phelps Ambulance Service and volunteer fire department. Three members of the Vorhees family made the trip north to be present for the golf tournament and to take prat in the trophy presentations. Kep Vorhees’ father, Vance E. Vorhees, and sister, Val Vorhees, both of Palatine, Ill., and Kep Vorhees’ daughter, Kim, of Schaumburg, Ill., were all on hand. Val and Kim each made donations of $500 to the charity fundraiser. According to Tom O’Connell, president of the Big Sand Lake Club, the tournament raised $2,580 for firefighters and emergency medical technicians. “We hope the net will grow as we receive donations from other members of the club,” said O’Connell. “It was a great day, and we hope to keep this annual event going for many years. It is a way for our club members to express thanks to our excellent fire department and ambulance service and all the volunteers who are on call 24 hours a day every day of the year.” Following the conclusion of the golf tournament, all players were guests at an outdoor barbecue at Big Sand Lake Club.
