Angel camps provide support to families affected by cancer
Angel On My Shoulder, a charitable organization, has scheduled two winter camps for young people affected by cancer through loved ones, such as parents, siblings or grandparents. The camps are offered costfree to the campers, with coach transportation available from locations throughout the state. Camp Angel for youths age 8 to 12 is scheduled Friday to Sunday, Jan. 20-22, in Boulder Junction. Angel Adventures is a winter camp for youth aged 16 to 18 and is scheduled Friday through Monday, Feb. 1720. These one-of-a-kind cancer support camps are offered through a partnership between Angel On My Shoulder and Marshfield Clinic. Corporate sponsors and individual donors also support the camps. Camp Angel was first offered in July 1997. The enrollment and response has been so great that it was expanded into the winter months. This is the third year of Angel Adventures. Both camp experiences still have openings. Angel On My Shoulder was founded in 1995 by Eagle River resident Lolly Rose, in memory of her husband, Dick Rose. The goal of the organization is to provide assistance not only to cancer patients, but to the family members surrounding the patient. “Children are just one focus of our programs,” said to Rose, founder and executive director. “These camps are designed to give them a safe place to have fun, bond and provide relief from the stresses at home.” For more information or to register for winter camps, contact angelonmyshoulder.org, 1 (800) 860-3431 or info@angel onmyshoulder.org.

Public interest in Bethlehem Star shines brightly at Kovac Planetarium
___________

Threshold of a new year
We stand at the threshold of another year. None of us knows what lies beyond that doorway. We hope the year brings with it peace, health, prosperity and more, but we are wise enough and have lived long enough to know that the year will be filled with a mix of events and experiences including joy, confusion, life, death, excitement, poverty, wars somewhere, peace, strife, sadness, grief, laughter and more. Maybe someone reading this column will cross death’s threshold this year. New babies will be born. Soldiers will come home from wars and many won’t. Life is a series of ups and downs. We know that. The unknown can be threatening to most. We have little to no control over much of what happens, but we do have the ability to take charge of our own lives and attitudes. We can make certain that our intentions are pure, that we do all we can to continue to grow into people of loving-kindness and that we do our best each day to be people of integrity. That we can control. As we move into 2012, there will be lessons for us to learn, opportunities to grow, fun to be enjoyed, hellos and goodbyes, ups and downs. Through it all we can choose to be grateful — something that is tough to do when the news is bad. How does one say thank you when a job is lost, a loved one dies, sickness comes?

A favorite subject this time of year at planetarium shows — including the Kovac Planetarium in Monico — continues to be the Star of Bethlehem, also called the Christmas star or Star of Wonder, which is said to mark the spot where Christ was born. Scientists, astrologers and religious-minded people have been fascinated over the years by the possibility of this occurrence. As far back as 1614, German astronomer Johannes Kepler determined that a series of three conjunctions — where two or more objects appear very close together in the sky — of the planets Jupiter and Saturn occurred in the year 7 B.C. Although this was a routine conjunction, dates and years vary, as some believe it to have occurred anywhere from 1 to To KOVAC, Pg. 2B

Now we're waiting for individual donations to help us reach the goal. If you've not donated before, now is the time. Your help is needed more than ever.” With funds raised this fall, the United Way will help fund 37 human service progams that help residents in the North Woods.

Free yoga classes offered
Vicki Potrykus, a certified yoga instructor, will offer free introductory yoga classes for new students throughout January. Classes will be held Mondays, Jan. 9, 16, 23 and 30, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Reiter Center in Three Lakes. The classes also will be offered Tuesdays, Jan. 10, 24 and 31, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. at Prince of Peace Church in Eagle River. The classes will be very gentle, according to Potrykus, and will be for anyone new to yoga, seniors or those who have health challenges. Potrykus said that many of the exercises can be done while sitting in a chair. “Students who have taken the class in the past have reported increased flexibility, better sleep and relief from symptoms of arthritis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, depression, headaches and other health challenges,” she said. A freewill donation will be taken for various charities. An additional class will be offered Tuesdays from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. at Prince of Peace Church. This class is for all levels and will be $27 for the month. The January classes will be followed by optional, ongoing classes February through May. Scholarships are available for high school students and others with financial need. Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing. Yoga sticky mats are recommended and will be available for use. Registration is highly recommended, since space is limited. Workshops and private instruction also are available. For more information, contact Potrykus at (715) 8912002.

Nicolet Foundation receives $3,000 grant
The Nicolet College Foundation recently received a $3,000 grant from Plum Creek Foundation to purchase equipment to help create a state-ofthe-art environmental science learning laboratory. The donation was used to purchase three new microscopes to benefit both Nicolet College students and high school students who participate in the pre-college program, by providing them with greater access to current science technology, according to Heather Schallock, executive director of the Nicolet College Foundation. The laboratory will assist in teaching areas of environmental science, including aquatic invasive species. “An updated lab will provide our students with an opportunity to experience environmental studies with improved technology and current information,” said Schallock. “Plum Creek’s grant is providing our students with resources and equipment that will help shape their educational experience.” The Nicolet College Foundation is the part of Nicolet College that provides scholarships and supports programs for students, including one for local, at-risk high school students. This program encourages students to consider postsecondary education and teaches students about environmental sciences through hands-on projects involving technology and natural resources. “The Plum Creek Foundation prides itself on community involvement,” said Mark Sherman, senior resource manager for the Plum Creek Lake States Region. “It’s important to us and our company to make a positive impact in the places we live, work and do business.” For more information, visit the plumcreek.com.

Kovac: stars shine brightly at Monico planetarium
FROM PAGE 1B
6 B.C. Others believe that the star was a unique conjunction, which occurs only once every 40 million years to form a starlike figure of a hexagram or two triangles. This geometric pattern consisted of Jupiter, Venus, Earth, Uranus, Mercury and Neptune. This shape resembles the Seal of Solomon, believed to occur on March 2, 5 B.C. While the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn may seem to be the likely explanation, there is still debate about whether the Bethlehem Star occurred and when it did, as some people believe it to have happened shortly after Jesus’ birth. References in the Bible to celestial events are found in the Psalms, “the stars speak” (King David) and Chapter 2 of the Gospel of Matthew, in which it states that the Star was visible only to the wise men, or Magi, who were highly advanced astrologer priests. They came from east of Jerusalem to follow the Star and find the very young Christ child. They were probably not Jewish because they weren’t aware of a prophecy stating that the king of the Jews was to be born in Bethlehem. Later tradition called the wise men kings and listed them as three: Caspar, Melchior and Balthazaar. Frank Kovac, owner and operator the past four years of the Kovac Planetarium in Monico, believes that the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus caused the Bethlehem Star. “In 1980, astronomers programmed a planetarium projector to show the sky during the year of Christ’s birth,” said Kovak. “Using historical data as well as modern technology, celestial events during that time were astounding!” Kovak’s daily programs are well attended by individuals and groups of all ages, some of whom have questioned him about the likelihood of the star’s existence. “For centuries, mankind has gazed into the heavens for guidance and believed that there was a connection to terrestrial events,” he said. “In our modern age, with its many distractions, a lot of people have lost their connection to the universe around us. This planet on which we live is just a tiny speck in an incredibly vast universe which we can hardly comprehend.” Kovac admits that stargazers have an advantage in the northern Wisconsin. “Here in the North Woods, the beauty of the night sky can still be seen due to the greater distance that lies between here and larger population centers,” he said. “Also, just as the wise men gazed into the heavens and followed a bright-shining star, you too can see the stars in all their glory at the Kovac Planetarium.” Kovac dedicated his planetarium to his father, Frank Kovac Sr., who taught him a love of the stars during his formative years. The planetarium took Frank Jr. five years to research, design and build. It has hand-painted stars on the ceiling and is billed as the largest mechanical planetarium in the world. During a recent program, Kovac continued his practice of narrating a fascinating presentation that was more than an hour long from memory without skipping a beat. The Kovac Planetarium is located four and one-half miles east of Monico, just off U.S. Highway 8. Reservations are required as seating is limited. Visitors can call (715) 487-4411 for a reservation or visit the website at kovacplanetarium.com.

YMCA to waive joiners fee
The YMCA of the Northwoods has announced its New Year-New You special; no joiners fee Friday, Dec. 30, from noon to close. During the entire month of January, new members may pay the day joiners fee. A variety of programs and activities will be offered for individuals and their families. Activities include youth and teen programs, recreational swimming and lessons, beginning and advanced workouts, health and wellness programs, daycamp and after-school programs, adult sports leagues and active older adult programs. These programs are designed for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. For more information, including scholarship programs, call or stop at the Y.

Arthritis program to be offered at Y
YMCA of the Northwoods – Eagle River Program Center will offer the Arthritis Foundation Walk With Ease class beginning Monday, Jan. 6. Participants will be taught how to safely make physical activity part of their everyday life. The evidence-based program is designed for people with or without arthritis— young and old, male and female, fit and not-so-fit. According to the YMCA, the class is based on research and tested programs in exercise science, behavior change and arthritis management. Walk With Ease is shown to: • increase balance, strength and walking pace; • reduce pain and discomfort of arthritis; • improve overall health; and • build confidence to be physically active. The class will be taught by Jolene Schirmacher, who is a certified Walk With Ease leader. During the program, participants will learn proper stretching and pain management techniques, as well as build stamina and walking pace. The program can be modified to meet the needs of individual participants and their unique goals. “Research shows that walking is not only good for joints but also helps improve the health of the heart, lungs and bones,” said Alison Eschweiler of the Arthritis Foundation, Upper Midwest Region, Wisconsin Chapter. “Walking can also help manage weight, which can reduce one’s risk for arthritis in the knee, heart disease and diabetes. If you can be on your feet for 10 minutes without increased pain, you will most likely have success with Walk With Ease,” she added. The six-week program also will be offered on Mondays and Wednesdays for six weeks, from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. beginning Monday, Jan. 2, at the Y facility in Rhinelander. The cost is $10 for YMCA members and $15 for the general public and will include the class, a Walk With Ease book and incentives.

UW-Extension offers tips to avoid winter weight gain
The UW-Extension has recommended some thoughtful planning to stay on track for those trying to maintain a healthy weight. According to the UWExtension, holiday parties and cold weather can sabotage good intentions. “Research shows that many adults gain a pound or two during the winter and the extra weight tends to stick around all year,” said Susan Nitzke, Extension nutrition specialist and professor emerita of nutritional sciences at UW-Madison. Nitzke added that it is much easier to avoid gaining weight than it is to take it off and keep it off later on. The following tips were offered to help avoid weight gain during the cold winter months: — Keep active. Don’t turn into a couch potato when the weather is cold. Walk the dog an extra few blocks each day, play active games with the children, take the stairs whenever you can, and add a few minutes of brisk walking when at the mall. — Keep a log of food intake. “Writing down everything you eat and drink is a good way to spot potential problems such as late-night snacking or eating a bag of chips while watching TV,” said Nitzke. — Monitor your beverages. Drinks such as coffee treats, hot chocolate, eggnog and super-sized soft drinks can have as many calories as a cheeseburger. For example, a 16-ounce peppermint mocha can have 400 calories or more. — Start and end meals with low-calorie foods that fill you up. For example, a first course of a small salad or soup helps you stick to small portions of calorie-rich foods like meat dishes or potatoes with gravy. Savor a sugar-free cup of coffee or tea after the meal, or have a piece of fruit for dessert instead of rich cakes, cookies and pastries. — Use a small plate. A small serving looks larger and seems more satisfying when it takes up more space on the dinner plate. The same principle applies to glasses, bowls and dishes for beverages and snacks. — Plan ahead for healthy eating at special occasions. If the winter calendar includes family feasts, office celebrations, football parties and holiday events, stick to strategies that can help you enjoy your favorite foods in moderation. With a personal party plan, it’s easier to enjoy the gathering without being tempted to overindulge, according to Nitzke. For more information, visit extension.org or contact Teresa Arnold, UW-Extension nutrition educator, at vilascounty.uwex.edu.

Recovery group to host event
The Woods & Waters Area of Narcotics Anonymous will host its annual New Year’s Eve Resolutions celebration Saturday, Dec. 31, at Nativity of Our Lord, formerly St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, in Rhinelander. There will be a pot luck dinner at 5 p.m., an open speaker meeting at 7 p.m., followed by the Resolutions New Year’s disc jockey dance. Refreshments will be available, as well as prizes, a raffle and auction. This is a drug- and alcoholfree event. Anyone with an interest in recovery is welcome to attend. Admission is by donation, although no one will be turned away. For more information, call (715) 614-9450 or visit woodsandwatersna.org.

Ministry donates ambulance to Nicolet
Ministry Howard Young Health Care (MHYHC) recently donated an ambulance to Nicolet Area Technical College (NATC) in Rhinelander. The ambulance will allow NATC students in the Protective Services program the opportunity to train in a simulated classroom to prepare for emergency events which occur during transport situations. “We have a great relationship with Nicolet Area Technical College and are excited to show our support of their Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program by donating the ambulance,” said Jeff Freese, MHYHC EMS manager.

Friedel-Hunt:
struggle with that also. I am able to be grateful for the jobs I have had, the loved ones I shared life with, the health I have enjoyed. But saying thank you when life is tough seems to be an advanced and illusive course in living for me, though I try. Many are busy creating a long list of resolutions this week. That list will most likely be forgotten within the month of January. Why? Certainly not because the author intended to forget the promises he or she made to him- or herself. Usually those resolutions are forgotten because there are just too many. Consider the most important change you wish to make this year. Perhaps you want to be more present, kinder, slimmer or calmer. Choose the one that is really important to you. Work on that one, no more. Once that is in place

FROM PAGE 1B

(and that could take all year), then try another one. Over time, the changes get easier as the snowball effect takes place. We are good people trying to do our best. Those whose behavior falls short of honesty and integrity, kindness and love have probably dealt with tough times of some sort in the past and have been unable or unwilling to grow from those lessons. But we all want to be happy and each day is an opportunity to create happiness for someone. When we do that, we become happy also. It is like magic. Enjoy each moment. They fly by very quickly. Let us be the best we can be in 2012. Happy New Year! Mary Friedel-Hunt can be reached at mfriedelhunt@ charter.net or P.O. Box 1036, Spring Green, WI 53588.

Humane officer offers safety tips
The Vilas County Humane Officer Candy Grambow has recommended that extra care should be taken with pets during the winter season. According to the officer, these steps should be followed to keep pets healthy and safe: If a dog is an outdoor-only dog, make sure that he has shelter from all weather— rain, snow, wind and cold temperatures. A doghouse, especially one that is insulated, is best. Igloo-type doghouses work well, too. Lining it with straw will keep a pet safe in cold temperatures. — Make sure the dog has access to water at all times. This is a state law. A heated water bowl may be required to keep the water from freezing. — When taking a dog for walks, or when the dog is kept outside for longer periods of time, be sure to monitor thedog’s feet. Paws are susceptible to frostbite easily in colder weather especially with short-haired breeds. — If the dog has a long and thick coat, such as a Saint Bernard or Great Pyrenees, keep them free of mats yearround. It is vital to their health. Mats can keep any dog from keeping warm or cool. It is not recommended to ever shave a long- or thickcoated dog, even in the summer, for this reason. To report animal cruelty, neglect or abuse, call the Vilas County Sheriff’s Department at (715) 479-4441.

New service to broaden options for veterans
The Iron Mountain Veterans Administration Affairs (VA) Medical Center will launch its new Veterans Transportation Service (VTS) Wednesday, Jan. 4. Organizers stated that this service is designed to improve the quality of life for veterans by overcoming transportation barriers and increasing their access to health care through efficient transportation assistance to the VA medical center and its community based outpatient clinics. VTS will start with one route to transport veterans round trip from the Escanaba area to Iron Mountain VA Medical Center and will include several stops along the way. The program will add more routes across the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan and into Wisconsin. All veterans will qualify for this free service. The VTS will strive to accommodate any veterans who need transportation to and from their scheduled appointments. Presently, this service is only available to ambulatory patients without special needs. In spring the VA medical center will receive two 16- passenger, wheelchair-accessible buses and the VTS will expand to accommodate nearly all patients, to include those using wheelchairs, oxygen tanks and walkers. In addition, nursing assistant escorts will be available to assist patients during transport. The VTS in no way replaces the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) vans currently being used throughout the UP and northern Wisconsin, but will complement them. For more information contact VA transportation coordinator Isaac Armstrong at 1-(800) 215-8262, ext. 33849, or isaac.armstrong@va.gov.

Marshfield offers solution for top dieting mistake
Health educator Renee Trapp with Marshfield Clinic’s Weight Management Program in Minocqua stated that there’s one popular diet strategy that’s almost certainly doomed to fail. As millions of dieters resolve to lose weight in the New Year, it can be helpful to know what not to do as you start a new diet, according to Trapp. “The idea of eating less in order to lose weight is one of the biggest dieting myths that exist today,” Trapp said. “If you follow that advice, chances are you’re going to feel deprived and hungry. And when people are hungry, they go for the quickest food they can find, which, in most cases, will be higher calorie.” “It may be possible to muscle through being really hungry and stick to your diet, but for every time someone does stare down the cookies, or the chips, pizza, candy, etc., there are countless times when the cookies will win,” she said. “When you let yourself get hungry, all bets are off and, for that moment, the diet is over.” Trapp said the good news is that dieting doesn’t have to be that way. The research is clear — instead of simply trying to eat less, dieters can eat more lower calorie, higher volume foods such as fruits and vegetables that can them fill up without the calories adding up. Trapp shared that being full makes it a lot easier to resist temptations to eat off the diet and, as a result, lose more weight. “In our HMR weight-loss program, we tell our dieters that it’s possible to eat a lot of food and still lose weight,” Trapp said. “It’s much more important to change what you’re eating than it is to try to change how much you’re allowing yourself to eat.” Trapp shared the following examples: Breakfast: Instead of a 3ounce doughnut for about 350 calories, have a weight-loss shake with a cup of strawberries blended in. A person can feel fuller with almost a halfpound of food, for only 200 calories. Lunch: Instead of a fast-food burger and fries (940 calories and about 14 ounces of food), have a low-calorie packaged entree with two cups of vegetables for 20 ounces of food and only 320 calories. Trapp pointed out that losing weight has far-reaching health benefits, like reducing heart disease and diabetes. “We look at weight management as one of the keys to controlling the soaring diabetes epidemic that’s sweeping the country,” Trapp said. “When you look at the long-term costs in both dollars and quality of life for people with Type 2 diabetes, weight-loss programs save both dollars and lives.” “The truth is that Type 2 diabetes is something that can be prevented, reversed or managed if people would invest in themselves and adopt a healthier lifestyle,” she said. “We want to help people add years to their lives and improve the quality of those years by helping them lose the weight.” To learn more, contact (715) 358-1036, 1-(800) 347-0673 or marshfieldclinic.hmrdiet.com.

at Eagle River Inn Conference Center “Turn Resolutions into Reality” LEARN HOW HYPNOSIS WORKS! • Lose Weight • Stop Smoking • Reduce Stress • Study & Test Taking • Exercise Motivation & More! 9943 Call (888) 392-0188 for information.

Meeting to offer assistance with New Year’s resolutions
Wendy Schaetz of Lasting Effects Hypnosis will provide a free informational meeting Sunday, Jan. 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Eagle River Inn & Resort in Eagle River. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in demonstrations of how hypnosis works. All attendees will receive discount coupons toward individual or group hypnosis sessions. “This time of year everyone wants to make healthy life changes. We start with excellent intentions, but by Jan. 3 we fizzle out and everything falls apart,” said Schaetz. “Hypnosis could be your answer to overcoming blocks and challenges that keep you from achieving your goals.” she exclaimed. According to Schaetz, hypnosis changes old, unwanted patterns that are deeply ingrained, and replaces them with positive new beliefs. Schaetz said that hypnosis may help with weight loss, smoking cessation, stress reduction, motivation to exercise and eat healthier, overcoming fears, sleeping better and more. Participants can learn about fee-based weight-loss and stop-smoking groups that will begin Sunday, Jan. 15. “Even if you are currently in a weight-loss program or you’re using the patch or gum to stop smoking, know that hypnosis is a boost to other programs,” stated Schaetz. Upcoming group sessions are planned Thursdays at noon, Saturday mornings or Sunday evenings in Eagle River and Minocqua/Woodruff locations. For more information, contact Schaetz at 1- (888) 3920188 or wschaetz@gmail.com.

Aspirus to offer heart program
Aspirus recently received a $20,000 grant to continue offering a potentially lifesaving heart valve screening program to people in north central Wisconsin. The Edwards Lifesciences Fund awarded the grant to Aspirus Wausau Hospital and the Aspirus Heart & Vascular Institute to provide free valve screenings for qualified people age 55 and older. According to Aspirus, heart valve heart disease occurs when one or more of the heart’s valves do not work properly, preventing the heart from providing adequate circulation. If left untreated, this condition can greatly reduce quality of life or even be lifethreatening. Many people who have heart valve defects or disease don't have symptoms. To be eligible, participants must be between 55 and 85 years; have had no previous heart surgery; have no previous diagnosis of valve disease; not currently be seeing a cardiologist; and must not be having regular echocardiograms (“echoes”). For more information or to schedule a screening, contact the Aspirus information center at 1- (800) 847-4707.

Ruthie’s Kountry Kitchen opens for breakfast, lunch
Residents of Conover and the surrounding area now have a new setting for breakfast and lunch, as Ruthie’s Kountry Kitchen opened for business in mid-December at 554 Highway 45. Owner and manager Ruthie Olson will lease the former location of Jeri Queen for her new establishment, which will feature daily breakfast and lunch specials along with regular Saturday night all-you-can-eat family buffets from 5 to 8 p.m. Customers can appreciate Olson’s home-style cooking and homemade soups in a cozy indoor diner environment. For the summer months, Ruthie’s Kountry Kitchen plans to offer additional outdoor seating. Olson said she comes from a family of restaurant owners, and has managed more than one restaurant in Washington state. “I started waiting tables at age 11,” she said. “I was working at my mom’s first restaurant in Round Lake, Ill.” Winter hours for the new restaurant are Wednesdays through Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ruthie’s also will be open Saturday nights for family buffets. Olson added that summer hours are yet to be determined, but she will likely open at 7 a.m.

The Department will follow the steps below to reach its final decision on the application. 1. Review the plans and information provided by the applicant. 2. Review the information from public comments. 3. Review the information presented at a public informational hearing if one is requested. 4.

Town Board holds special meeting
A special meeting of the St. Germain Town Board held last week considered two topics. Past President, Tom Christensen, of The Bo-Boen Snowmobile Club, attended the meeting on behalf of the club. The club recently lost a portion of a major north/south trail route when a property owner denied access across his property. Safety issues along Highway 155, Wisconsin Department of Transportation rules regarding snowmobile trails, and proposed new routes for the trail were discussed. Town Chairman Walt Camp offered his assistance to the club in rearranging the route. The board went into closed session to discuss the new employee handbook with town employees. There are four full-time employees. When a new golf pro is hired, the number of employees will be five. McNaughton Correctional Center also provides workers for the town. They do not fall under the Terms of Employment document.
