Headwaters Council for the Performing Arts (HCPA) will bring the fourth of its season’s performances Thursday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m. to the auditorium at Northland Pines High School in Eagle River. The international group Voces8 will perform a cappella. The group has toured the United States since January. According to Steve Kolling, HCPA president, “This international award-winning octet has established itself at the forefront of British a cappella.” “Performing a repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony to unique jazz and pop arrangements, the group has been praised for stunning performance, exquisite singing and creating a sound that spans the entire range of vocal color,” he shared. The octet is made up of six men and two women, who have extensive musical backgrounds: Dingle Yandell’s singing career began at the Westminster Abbey as a chorister. He is a founding member of Voces8. Paul Smith’s musical life

Phelps student wins awards at Milwaukee art ceremony

Reflections

Real happiness
On the drive north from Janesville to Madison last week, I passed a gambling casino. The entire parking lot was packed with cars. Last month I visited a friend in Prairie du Chien. She suggested we have lunch at the restaurant attached to the nearby gambling casino on the Mississippi River. When we arrived, I was shocked to see a full parking lot on a weekday at 2 p.m. When we lived in Ouray, Colo., Bill and I decided one day to drive over to Las Vegas to see what it was all about. The 600-mile drive seemed doable in a day, so off we went. Admittedly we were naive tourists who were shocked by the number of people gambling in the lobby, in the rooms off the lobby, at restaurants — everywhere. We stayed up late that night and walked the main drag to see what Vegas was like at midnight and at 2 a.m. Of course, the gambling continued — I would guess it went on all night. Bill and I had put $25 each to gamble. I laugh now. I lost mine on day two. He still had a quarter left when we were preparing to leave on Monday morning. He tossed it in a machine and out came To FRIEDEL-HUNT, Pg. 3B

Pines students get ski training at Trees
Northland Pines High School students recently participated in a day of highactivity ski instruction with Trees For Tomorrow staff on campus grounds, located in Eagle River. Following training, the group was given the opportunity to practice their skiing prowess on Norge Trails at the Eagle River Golf Course. The students received support from Eagle River Dairy Queen, who has sponsored education efforts at Trees For Tomorrow. “Dairy Queen is proud to help Northland Pines students experience the outdoors,” said Dan Anderson, owner and operator of Eagle River Dairy Queen. Trees For Tomorrow encourages students to spend time outdoors and gain an appreciation for nature, which can influence them for life. One student stated, “This is a very important experience for kids because it not only provides them with social and learning opportunities, but experiences that will be extremely crucial in the workplace.” “These days, kids are not always given these types of opportunities, and they are something we must always remember to appreciate and

Many people were instrumental in teaching Jonathon Rulseh from Three Lakes how to crosscountry ski. He has come a long way. This 27-year-old will ski the American Birkebeiner in Cable for the eighth time Saturday. “With great patience and always making it fun, my parents taught me at age 2 how to ski at my grandfather’s home in Phelps,” Rulseh recalled. “Then two Three Lakes teachers, Len Larson and Rob Peterson, who is a longtime Birkie skier and cross-country running coach, introduced me to freestyle (skate) skiing. We’d ski Anvil Lake trails after school. “I didn’t race until my junior year in high school and probably wouldn’t have started if it hadn’t been for these teachers,” he reminisced. Rulseh joined the UWStevens Point Nordic Ski Club and entered local races while attending college. Now he is a member of Wisconsin Nordic Racing and skis for Madshus, the world’s oldest Nordic ski manufacturer.

He competes in nine to 12 races per year across northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Has Rulseh always had the need for speed? “It wasn’t until I was about 13 years old that I realized what it was like to ski fast. Up to that point, I was just plodding along through the woods enjoying nature, which I still try to do at least once a week. It was the speed that really got me to love ski racing. It’s like flying,” he mused. The American Birkebeiner is the largest ski race in North America and draws more than 8,000 competitors. To hear him speak of the Birkie, one can tell Rulseh loves everything about this long-distance competition. “The best thing about Nordic skiing is being able to get out and exercise in the depth of winter,” Rulseh stated. “Once you get into shape, it is relatively easy to just cruise along. Whether it’s racing or simply exploring your own backyard. Get out there and have fun!”

$25. We stopped for a nice lunch on the way home. I am not opposed to anyone gambling once in a while, though I choose not to spend my time or money that way. It just makes no sense to me. And except from working with a few clients who were in recovery elsewhere for their gambling addictions, I have little experience with gambling. What I do know is how sad I felt when I saw elderly men and women throwing what seemed like an endless amount of money into machines. They sat, often with a cigarette in one hand and free alcoholic beverage in the other. Knowing a bit about their chances of winning, I felt sad that they were throwing away their hard-earned dollars, their Social Security checks and perhaps their savings in hopes of winning big. It is estimated that there are 15 million people in our country alone with problem gambling issues. Motivated by the excitement (the adrenaline rush), the numbing of unpleasant feelings, boredom and loneliness, relaxation, or the solution to money problems, gambling controls their lives. Instead of choosing constructive and potentially successful solutions, gamblers spend their hours and dollars betting on machines, sporting events and more. Most will lose. Like any addiction, the gambler must come to the place where he or she is ready to let go of his or her habit. If you know someone with a gambling problem, Gamblers Anonymous (www.gamblersanonymous.org) can help. Anything can become an addiction — alcohol, drugs, shopping, gambling, hoarding, another person, eating — anything. If you are struggling with an addiction or a behavior that is out of control, hopefully you will seek assistance and find a healthier way to deal with your life. It takes a commitment made to yourself. Real happiness awaits.

All-class reunion to feature seven decades of music
All former students of Eagle River Union High School and Northland Pines High School, along with former and current faculty, staff, spouses and significant others are welcome to attend the all-class reunion scheduled Friday through Sunday, Aug. 10-12.

In return for relaying information to individuals in their graduating class, class representatives will receive a free ticket to the reunion. Pete Rondello Sr. and Joe Devereaux have signed on to be disc jockeys for the all-class reunion. Not only do the two men have years of experience, but according to Rondello, they collectively have more than 12,000 songs. With interest in the reunion coming in from those who graduated in the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and 2000s, the DJs plan to have something for everyone and plan to play popular music from all seven decades, from The Andrews Sisters to Adele.

2012 FIT FOR LIFE
WEEK 7

PRESENTED BY:

Watch the group’s weight loss here weekly.

The group lost a total of 15 pounds.
W SPOTLIGHT W
Bobbie Hall Eagle River Week’s loss: 2 lbs.
Total loss: 8 lbs.
It should be noted that Bobbie has already lost 57 lbs. previous to this competition, so it is more common to plateau.
“The most surprising thing for me has been, I have done exercises I would have thought impossible for me. I have to have some things modified, but for the most part I feel that I am doing things I would never have tried on my own. Also, that the restaurants in this area have been very supportive in working with me and changing orders so they are lower calorie, lowfat, and healthier for me. So thank you, Leif’s and Riverstone, for making it easier for me to continue to eat out and lose weight. It can be done.”

WHAT IS THE MOST SURPRISING OR BENEFICIAL THING YOU HAVE LEARNED THUS FAR?
John Schuh Phelps
Week’s loss: 4 lbs. Total loss: 25 lbs.

“The most beneficial things I’ve learned so far are looking at labels when shopping. I’m also learning new ways to work out. You don’t need to go to the gym all the time. You can get a good workout at home.”

Margaret Rainer Three Lakes
Week’s loss: 3 lbs. Total loss: 10 lbs.

Tabitha Avery Eagle River

“I’ve learned it is never too late to start exercising. I am discovering another side of me.”

Week’s loss: 1 lb. Total loss: 9 lbs.

“So far I have been surprised to know that I have been building my stamina that I didn’t know I had before. The 90-minute classes are ending sooner than they did when we first started the 90-minute classes that seemed like they never would end. Everything we are doing in classes, I am taking outside of the class and using it to benefit me later after the classes have ended: the workouts, the types of exercises and what we talk about with the food and nutrition part.”

Rochelle Frank Eagle River
Week’s loss: 1 lb. Total loss: 10 lbs.

“The most beneficial thing that I have learned so far, is that I CAN DO IT! I know that this may not seem like a lot to most people, but just getting yourself off your butt and going into the gym every day is one of the hardest things that someone could ever do. I am changing my life and doing it in a healthy way. The first step is telling yourself that you can and that you will. And, as one of my trainers said this week, “YOU ARE WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE!” These words come from someone who I truly look up to and hope to work up to be like someday.”

Michele Jacobson Eagle River
Week’s loss: 4 lbs. Total loss: 16 lbs.

“The most surprising thing so far is that a healthy diet and exercise, hand in hand, is the winning combination to lose weight. I have heard it so often, but now am seeing the results! It really works.”

In the spirit of mixing it up, we invited two different trainers to lead exercise classes, which meant the participants experienced a wide array of activity and teaching styles for their workouts, forcing them to go outside of their norm. Tuesday, our Power Beats instructor, Sarah, led the class through a routine that required beating a stability ball with drumsticks to a series of lively songs. Thursday, YMCA legendary trainer, Tara, led the class through a killer kickboxing workout. The introduction of these new experiences opened the mind to trying new things and finding something active and fun. That’s how to keep active your entire life. Find what you truly enjoy.

Julia’s Fitness Tip
Weight loss and strength gain don’t have to be achieved only in a traditional sense. Think outside the box. If you don’t like the treadmill, don’t do it! Find a fun activity or exercise class that achieves cardiovascular improvement while keeping your mind focused on the fun. A little-known fact is that there are infinite ways to achieve your fitness goals and many of them are more effective than just running and weight lifting. The Y offers a wide array of group exercise classes led by instructors with differing techniques and personal style. We invite everyone to experiment with classes at the Y that start this week to find their niche and keep active. Classes are listed at www.ymcaotn.org. Julia John

Don’t be rotten to the core.
Many people loathe doing sit-ups, so they just don’t do them. What they’re missing out on is core strength. Without it, people have back problems, poor posture and probably a bad golf game. What these people may not realize is that we don’t have to do sit-ups to get a stronger core. Here are some alternatives to situps that will strengthen the abs and back. Pelvic Push Down: Lie on the floor on your back. Press your spine down so that it’s entirely flat on the floor and hold for 30 seconds. Rest 10 seconds and repeat five times. Bent Arm Plank: Lie face down on the floor. Raise upper body on bent arms and balance lower body weight on your toes. Hold position for 20 seconds and rest 10 seconds. Repeat five times and increase duration on subsequent days. Add a rear straight leg lift as a challenge! “Walk” on elbows as another challenge! For those of us who don’t mind a crunch here or there, there are variations. Try a reverse crunch, curling your hips up off the floor. Heels to Heaven are a challenge — lie on the floor on your back with your legs extended straight up. Now, lift your hips up and keep legs straight, as if there were a string pulling your heels to Heaven. Another one is a combo move — Spiderman pushup. Do a pushup and on the up, draw in one bent knee out to the side and repeat for other leg. For demonstrations and many, many more core-strength exercises, stop in at the Eagle River YMCA. Our qualified certified personal trainers will be happy to assist you!

Nutrition Tip of the Week
We tend to be creatures of habit, eating the same 5-10 recipes over and over. If we can figure out a way to make those recipes healthier, we are more likely to stay on course. Find ways to reduce, eliminate or substitute highcalorie, high-fat items. A good cookbook can do wonders at helping you figure this out. I like the “Cooking Light” ones, as they also teach you different cooking methods and how to reduce the fat and keep the flavor. The “Biggest Loser” series also has some good tips and even sample menu plans. Julie LaCrosse, RDCD

Marshfield Clinic, Eagle River announces expanded hours
Over the past year, Marshfield Clinic has listened to patients and developed new systems and processes to respond to their needs. Some of the resulting improvements are same-day appointments as well as expanded hours for appointments before and after work or school hours. Marshfield Clinic Eagle River Center, as well as other clinic sites, have implemented a process called patient-centered medical home. The National Committee for Quality Assurance recently recognized Marshfield Clinic Eagle River Center, as well as 33 other Marshfield Clinic centers, for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on coordinated care and long-term health relationships. One of the benefits of the patient-centered medical home model is that it utilizes a team approach. Medical assistants, nursing staff, nurse practitioners and physician assistants work as a cohesive team with the physician. “It means having the right person doing the right work, matching each person’s skill sets to the tasks to meet a patient’s needs,” said Diane Hrdina, Marshfield Clinic Eagle River Center family practice physician. “The results are that we’ve now been able to open up time for patient appointments that we just didn’t have before.” “There is much data to support the fact that prevention is much less expensive than critical medical care. Putting off routine screenings, immunizations or management of chronic conditions like diabetes can result in very serious consequences,” Hrdina said. “We want to be sure our patients are able to take care of their health before it gets urgent, before their health deteriorates to the point that they need extensive hospitalization and have expensive medical bills,” she said. “Ultimately, this is how we can reduce the cost of health care for our patients.” For more information about same-day or expanded-hours appointments, call Marshfield Clinic Eagle River Center at (715) 479-0400.

The St.Germain Lions Club will host a blood drive Thursday, March 1, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the firehouse, located at 553 Highway 155 in St. Germain. “If you’re looking for a way to help others, consider donating blood,” said Jan Hadsell of the Community Blood Center. “Every day, area-hospital patients receive blood transfusions that are made possible by volunteer blood donors with the Community Blood Center.” Blood donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with parental permission, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health and have photo identification. Donors should eat a regular meal and drink fluids prior to donating. Walk-in donors are welcome, but scheduling an appointment keeps the total time required for a donation to less than an hour, according to blood-drive coordinators. Donation appointments may be made by calling Larry at (715) 479-7605 or the blood center at 1-(800) 280-4102 or visit save3lives.org.

Karen Altamore was crowned the 2012 Ice Shack Queen.

Club totaled more than $2,100, with Altamore being crowned queen. Food was prepared and served by the Plum Lake Volunteer Fire Department. Major raffle winners took home such items as gas-powered ice augers, fish cameras, Otter sleds, a portable ice fishing shack, meat platters, gift certificates from various local businesses and ice chippers. The Lions Club raised approximately $7,000 from the event.

Internet service, trail concerns bring standing-room-only crowd to board meeting
The St. Germain town boardroom recently held a standing-room-only crowd of 49 citizens and four town board members. Two items were responsible for the turnout. The first item was a presentation by SonicNet’s owner and CEO, Lori Collins, and Adam Holroyd, who laid out plans for a fixed-wireless broadband service for the community. “Our service would make broadband Internet available to people who want to have high-speed broadband Internet in their homes. The system would bring new business to the community, increase local employment and be available to homes and businesses on a full-time or seasonal basis,” said Collins who is also a member of the Vilas County Economic Development Corp. “The speed and bandwidth we are offering would make videoconferencing available to people who want to conduct long-distance board meetings,” added Holroyd who is SonicNet’s technical specialist. The plan will require a 150foot tower to be built on town land from which SonicNet would lease antenna space. “We could conceivably have this service by May and funding for it could come from room tax monies because they can be used for community development,” said Walt Camp, town chairman. Camp continued, “The cost of the tower, $7,399, would be reimbursed to the town by the lease and room tax funds are not based on property tax.” Plans should be finalized at the next town board meeting. Word of an anti-snowmobiling ordinance was the second item discussed at the meeting. Camp acknowledged that the issue was not on the agenda, but that word was going around the community regarding a possible ordinance. He introduced the subject saying, “We are not looking to close any snowmobile trails or do anything like that.” Ed Siergiej, one of the attendees at the meeting, expressed concern that the town may draft an ordinance against snowmobiles that ride on the highway right of way or on the blacktop. “This town board supports the snowmobiles and snowmobile industry 100%,” Camp stated. It was noted that potential damage to the blacktop on the St. Germain Bike & Hike trail that runs through the town, as well as the safety of walkers and bikers on the trail are items of concern. Camp summarized the intended goal of a proposed ordinance by saying, “When we opened up the trail this fall, we saw ATVs, cars, trucks, motorcycles, SUVs and golf carts on the trail.” He went on, “The intent is that we create an enforceable ordinance. Right now we have nothing on the books, nothing in writing. It’s all in the discussion stage. So, it’s good this has come out so we can take everyone’s comments into consideration.” “There will be an ordinance that will enhance the safety of walkers and bikers on the trail from the danger of being run over by trucks and other motorized vehicles,” said Camp. Tom Christensen added, “If such an ordinance said ‘motorized, wheeled vehicles,’ people would not be so upset.” Supervisor John Bates agreed. “This is a summer issue and we will have no trouble making the wording ‘wheeled vehicle’,” he said. Camp commented, “I have no problem with an ordinance saying ‘motorized, wheeled vehicles.’ ” Other business before the board included a request by Fire Chief Tim Clark to be granted permission to sell fire equipment that is no longer used or needed. All proceeds would come back to the town treasury because this is townowned equipment. Road limits also were discussed and will be put off until the next meeting. Neighborhood Watch studies are under way. Camp reported that interest in the program is high. “We need an additional town to partner with us so we can apply for a grant,” said Camp. “We have our Community Development Fund and I have also been contacted by some of the different lake associations wanting to participate and fund their part of the program.” Vilas County Chief of Detectives Joe Fath and Sheriff Gary Peske were in attendance. Fath spoke about available grants and Peske commented that the types of crime St. Germain has been seeing come in cycles. An explanation of the impact of changes in the election laws on St. Germain was provided by Camp.
