The Edith Evans Community Library of Laona opened their doors to the history of Ellis Island in late January to the students and residents of the surrounding communities. A presentation of the history was made via informational wall hangings and a 15 minute video. Laona School Librarian, Carol Bartlein explained the history of “Ellis Island; The Golden Age of Immigration and Beyond” to the 4th grade class using examples of their own heritage whether is was Polish, German, Norwegian, Dutch, or Irish. Many of the students ancestors were those who settled the northern portion of Forest County. Many of the first settlers of the County were transported by train and wagon to help with the production of logging, farming, and mining. Names such as Connor, McKinley, Antis, Spencer, Johnson, are a few of the early settler’s of the Laona area. To learn more about the early settler’s and the building of the community of residents of Laona, go to;

From the Editor-news and notes
February is heart health month, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, and another month closer to spring!!! January has just about walked out the door leaving us with unusual cold temperatures and some snowy days off of school
OCONTO COUNTY For details see:

Welcome Jeff Mahon (the mayor) back to our pages this month. Be sure you read what he has to say this month. I just love how he escapes to Florida where it is nice and warm while we count the days til Spring. The release of the 1940 U.S. Census will be released in April which for many of us historical and family researchers will hopefully hold answers to many puzzles. As a professional genealogist I am among many who are fighting to keep our access to the Social Security Death Index (SSDI). We are not out to use these numbers but to be able to help us identify our earlier ancestors as proof for citations in our research. Get Well Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors. UPCOMING EVENTS; See page 19 for all of the monthly events scheduled. The weather– It is now WINTER in the northwoods but someone better tell Mother Nature. Lately our weather has been colder at night and a tad warmer during the day. The temperature outside, however, has been in the minus temp’s at night and in the mid-low teens during the day. Reports of snow fall in the farther northwoods have come in but none in the Lakes Territory as of printing. Birthday Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors; Happy Birthday to Tessa Ray Wagner (IL), Tawny Booth, cousin Megan Bailey, Nick Lowery, Rick Challoner, Prof. Genealogist Mrs. Myra Vanderpool Gormley (WA), cousin Thomas Murphy, niece Rhiannon Hooper, Rita Blazewicz, Mary Walker Rieder, Jennifer Ducey, niece Rita Steiger, nephew Max Bailey (Leap Year) Gas prices have gone up actually but not as much as they were a year ago. They’ve gone from $4 plus down to $3.35 and a penny or two of more or less.

The January meeting of the Nicolet AARP Chapter 1191 was attended by 30 members who enjoyed a pot luck dinner and a presentation by Flip and Beth Hartman on how to stay fit and healthy with exercise that can be done at home at low cost. Flip and Beth Hartman are the owner operators of Tri Fitness located in Lakewood. Several members take advantage of fitness programs at their facility. The Hartman’s showed the group how to get fit with simple exercises which can be done by those with limited cost, time, or physical ability. The presentation was interesting, helpful and loaded with a good amount of levity. As members arrived at the meeting each one was given a pin which said “The Good AARP”. This is a reminder to the members to volunteer to help others and to do good deeds for others as suggested by the Good AARP Program which was recently launched. The Spring Valentines Party this year will be at Mulligans Sports & Grill in Lakewood on February 13th starting at 4:30 p.m. with dinner at 5:30 p.m. Members will order from the menu. Contact Joyce West at 715-2769409 to make reservations. Beth and Flip Hartman presenting how to stay fit and healthy with exercise at home

If you are a ‘baby boomer’ you had Presidents’ Lincoln and Washington’s birthday off of school. Today, it is celebrated as a combined day remembering all of the U..S. Presidents from George Washington to our current President, Obama. However, some school districts over the years, have elected to not give the day off but spend a part of their students day teaching them about the Presidents. With this being yet another election year there may be more of a focus in some schools on who the students would elect. Do they go back into their history books to learn how preceding Presidents say from the 1800 or early 1900’s stood on their political believe’s. Or, would they hold mock elections to see who would have become President based on historical facts. To learn more about President Lincoln go to: Also, visit the U.S. National Archives to learn more about Presidential history at; Originally instated in 1880, this was the first federal holiday to honor an American citizen, George Washington, on his birthday. In 1971, the federal holiday was shifted to the third Monday in February, and in the mid-1980s advertisers pushed to coin “Presidents Day” publicly as opposed to “Washington’s Birthday” to celebrates all past and current Presidents.

Hello Wisconsin! I’ve always wanted to start this column with “That 70’s Show” iconic salutation, and it’s appropriate this month because of how far away from you I am at this moment. And that would be Daytona Beach, Florida … where the weather has been almost flawless since we arrived just over a week ago. Nope, not going to rub it in, since I’ve been keeping an eye on your weather since we arrived, as well as our own, back in Ohio. Frankly, if I could figure out a way to transplant myself here, right now … you get the picture, I’m sure. However, I have a very good reason for bringing up where I am. I’ll get to that in a moment. While you are salivating over what that reason might be, another topic may be on your mind. You may have noticed my absence here within these august pages the last couple of months. The very good reason for that is this: I’ve been very, very deeply involved in my new job. And we will get to that pretty quickly, too. Before we get started, here’s the agenda! I’m going to break all the journalistic rules here … political commentary? Yup. Blatant commercial pitch? You got it. Voting advice? Fer sure, Dr. Bob! Let’s get going, OK? Perhaps a little background would be helpful. Without belaboring it, I have worked part time only for the last several years, for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the state of our national economy. Other big reasons include, but are not limited to, my wife’s health, my health and age, coupled with a real absence of jobs in the fields in which I chose to make a living over the last 40 years.

the top. Sneaking into the mix was this quote from another politico, Ronald Reagan: “I believe the best social program is a job.“ And that quote was cited by the founder of the non-profit organization by which I was trained, at no cost to me, to become certified as a customer service representative, specifically trained to be hired by at least a half dozen national companies actively seeking same. How about that, folks? Now, the meat and potatoes of why I am writing this month. I am up to my ears with all the political talk about unemployment, the economy, who is to blame, who can, who can’t do anything about it … in the midst of the worst do-nothing Congress in over half a century. The Presidential candidates are arguing about who is capable of being the best President, while the President is busy setting up his campaign to keep his job. These folks all have jobs, paid for by us, but they are all more worried about keeping their jobs or getting a new, more powerful job, than they are about doing the ones they already have. Ditto that for every Senator or Congressperson up for election this fall. And while there are hundreds of millions of dollars being spent on these political campaigns, not one cent of which does anything of real value for our ailing economy, there is a little non-profit organization call Virtual Training Systems ( that does this: Virtual Training Systems is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing free job skills training and job placement assistance to individuals with disabilities and other economically disadvantaged Americans preparing them for a secure and independent future.

In a nutshell, “Virtual Training Systems offers online customer service job training for at-home call center agents.” That is my blatant commercialism. Seriously, though, this organization is doing something positive, while a whole lot of politicos and pundits are spending our time and money telling us what they are GOING to do, once they are The above is important for one main reason: I am able to write to you elected. Think back to every politician you ever voted for, and try to from Daytona Beach, Florida, in the middle of Winter, substantially write down on a piece of paper the economic benefit you personally because of my new job. Now, this new job is nothing I thought I would derived from that person getting elected. be doing, ever, while climbing the so-called Corporate Ladder of Success. It does, however, utilize virtually every real skill I ever developed VTSystems trained me, provided a list of companies for me to apply to, in my entire business and social career. And I can be here, in no small and the rest was up to me. There are two people I know of working for part, due to the part time income generated by this new job. the same company I do from Wisconsin … and the company we work for has employees coast to coast. We are caregivers, disabled, veterans, What prompted me to answer our intrepid publisher’s request for veteran dependents, young, old and in-between … People who are typi‘words’ this month is twofold: First, the unemployment rate in our fine cally unable to work a traditional full time job. Check them out, and U.S. of A. is still around 10%. It is worse, I believe, in Wisconsin. tell someone you know who is in a similar position. There are counties in Ohio where it is still about 15%. And the steel girder that broke THIS camel’s back, was something I read just a few My political commentary you’ve already put up with. Voting advice? days ago on Face Book: Unemployment for returning veterans is at Vote for someone who is actually going to do something other than bad 30%. Seriously, folks … THIRTY PERCENT! ! ! For a segment of -mouth an opponent. That includes newbies, first time incumbents and our population, men and women, who have placed their lives on the the old pros that have been in office since you were a kid.

If they aren’t doing you and yours any good, then get To suffer that indignity is just criminal. someone into office that will. Voting is always important, but maybe this year even more so.

“My Journey” By Bonnie Vrchota
Part of your good hygiene regime is good dental care. Poor dental care leads to tooth decay, gum disease, and gives you bad breath. Gum disease and tooth decay leads to ill health via infection. Tooth decay happens when an infectionlike disease causes the tooth to deteriorate and rot. Plaque sticks to your teeth and is the biggest source of gum disease and tooth decay. Eating healthy, flossing & brushing your teeth after meals and before bed helps prevent tooth decay. Avoiding sugary foods and drinks helps keep tooth decay at bay. Flossing reaches deeper into the crevices to remove tartar and keeps your teeth healthy and strong (and cheaper dental bills in the long run). If you don't floss, you let plaque build cavities to form in between your teeth. Flossing also makes your teeth have nice, finished edges. See your dentist at least once a year (twice is better) for a check-up. Get a good teeth cleaning to remove plaque, stains & food debris. explains the dental flossing technique pretty good.

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam
Spinal Stenosis
What is stenosis? Spinal stenosis is created by the narrowing of the spinal canal. This narrowing may be caused by mechanical problems or by abnormalities in the aging spine. It may or may not result in low-back pain, limping, and a lack of feeling in the legs. Stenosis is often a degenerative condition. It may exist for years without causing pain or discomfort, but a fall or an accident can trigger characteristic stenotic pain. Numerous factors can cause stenosis, such as thickened ligaments, expanding infection, abscess, a congenital or developmental anomaly, degenerative changes, vertebral fractures or dislocations, or a spinal cord tumor. How is stenosis diagnosed? Spinal stenosis can be diagnosed based on the history of symptoms, a physical examination, and imaging tests. An electrodiagnostic study is more dependable for information on a stenotic spine. To diagnose stenosis caused by an abscess or an infection, blood work analyzed by a laboratory may be required, while vertebral tumors and spinal tumors require finely tuned imaging. How is stenosis treated? There are three basic treatment approaches to spinal stenosis: the conservative medical approach, which frequently involves bed rest, analgesics, local heat, and muscle relaxants; the conservative chiropractic approach, which includes manipulation, exercise and selfcare techniques; and surgery. The source of the stenosis often dictates the treatment. Ultimately, stenosis is a chronic condition that cannot be “cured,” but it often can be improved, and improvement can be maintained over the long term. Patients can work with a health care provider to reduce symptoms and improve their quality of life. Signs and Symptoms of Stenosis

• Pseudoclaudication—pain triggered by walking or prolonged standing, which is usually improved by sitting in a forward leaning flexed position • Numbness, tingling, and hot or cold feelings in the legs • Muscle weakness and spasms
