Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Paula Patton, Josh Holloway, Michael Nyqvist, Vladimir Mashkov ; This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization’s name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence

In September 2011, a group of committed parents and teachers convened to form a new and dynamic group: the Wabeno Home and School Association. The association is an organization of parents, guardians, and faculty members who are working together to make our school a better, richer environment. The association members recognize that with active cooperation between our families and faculties, we can make our great school even better, while building community. The organization continues to grow in membership and has already sponsored several great events. In November, Home and School sponsored a bake sale in conjunction with musical storyteller, Randy Peterson’s presentation. The association netted $252. In January, Home and School sponsored a family movie night and raffle fundraiser. Over 200 people attended and had a great time. Also, as a result $532 was raised. In January, Home and School hosted a special appreciation luncheon for the teachers, staff, and school board members at Wabeno Elementary. In February, a second bake sale was held during the parent-teachers conferences and netted $260. Friday, March 2nd, we will be having a cake walk preceding a presentation by singer/storyteller, Stuart Stotts. This event will be held in the Wabeno Elementary gym at 5:15 PM. Thus far, through generous donations, fun fundraising events, and a lot of effort on the part of the members, the Wabeno Home and School Association has raised $1,044. All the funds raised by the Association will be supporting the needs of the students, teachers and school. So far, Home and School donated $200 for the yearly Holiday Book Exchange. This is just the beginning. Future ideas for Home and School funds include partial funding for the June end of the school year carnival, family nights, and teacher appreciation luncheon. The Home and School Association needs your help. The more community involvement we have, the stronger and more vibrant our school will be. Parents, guardians, and community members are welcome and encouraged to get involved. We meet the first Monday of each month in the Wabeno Elementary library. Our next meeting is Monday, March 5 at 6 PM. For more information, contact Principal Allison Space at (715) 473-3633.

The first UNAC (Up North Authors Circle) meeting of 2012 was held at the Lakewood Library on February 8. Facilitator Kathleen Marsh welcomed members back to begin the group’s seventh year of sharing their writings. Nancy Jo Garner began by reading her newest poem, “Familiar Stranger.” Nancy Jo said she intends to make the poem into a song, which met with nods of enthusiastic approval from the group. Her poem is written in autobiographical quatrains with a “pay it forward” theme. In explaining why she wrote it, Nancy Jo elicited big smiles: “Kathleen Marsh and UNAC changed my life. She deserves so much credit for getting me started on a musical career that has evolved over the past year, far beyond anything I could have imagined. At the first meeting I attended, she and other UNAC members convinced me to perform at the Townsend Variety Show, and now I am entertaining on weekends at the Big Easel Restaurant in Wabeno.” Townsend writer George Arentz was next. He blew away the group with a short story he entitles: “In the Marvel of Miracles.” This lengthy piece is yet another of those richly composed mosaic narratives that George is noted for. This time the setting is the Fox Valley, where the protagonist experiences unspeakable tragedy while finding true love. George’s story is a tale of human beings battling the worst of themselves, only to be saved by the power of love that they so desperately need. The meeting ended with Shari Posselt reading a thought-provoking poem, “Bursting.” Shari’s rhymed verse is a wonderfully emotional piece in which the narrator stuffs his feelings and puts on a happy face. He does it for so long that he loses sight on his true self and then bursts, losing it and himself in a tragic meltdown. Everyone agreed that Shari has a way of packing her work with colorful language that really communicates an important message. UNAC will meet again on March 13 at 5:00 at the Lakewood Library. New members are always welcome.

“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. Dental-Picture-Show.com explains the dental flossing technique pretty good.

Ellie Donaldson and Laney Peters were the February winners of the Lakewood Super Valu “I got caught going green” t-shirts. The students where caught doing a "green" deed during the month of January.

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam How to Select Athletic Shoes
Because footwear plays such an important role in the function of bones and joints— especially for runners and other athletes—choosing the right shoe can help prevent pain in your back, hips, knees, and feet. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as the very best athletic shoe—every pair of feet is different, every shoe has different features, and overall comfort is a very personal decision. For this reason, it is recommended that you first determine your foot type: normal, flat, or high-arched.

The Normal Foot
Normal feet have a normal-sized arch and will leave a wet footprint that has a flare, but shows the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band. A normal foot lands on the outside of the heel and rolls slightly inward to absorb shock. Best shoes: Stability shoes with a slightly curved shape.

The Flat Foot
This type of foot has a low arch and leaves a print that looks like the whole sole of the foot. It usually indicates an over-pronated foot—one that strikes on the outside of the heel and rolls excessively inward (pronates). Over time, this can cause overuse injuries. Best shoes: Motion-control shoes or high-stability shoes with firm midsoles. These shoes should be fairly resistant to twisting or bending. Stay away from highly cushioned, highly curved shoes, which lack stability features.

The High-Arched Foot
The high-arched foot leaves a print showing a very narrow band—or no band at all—between the forefoot and the heel. A curved, highly arched foot is generally supinated or under-pronated. Because the foot doesn’t pronate enough, usually it’s not an effective shock absorber. Best shoes: Cushioned shoes with plenty of flexibility to encourage foot motion. Stay away from motion-control or stability shoes, which reduce foot mobility.

Mudslingers' Pub and Grill at the intersection of Hwy's 8 and 139 in Cavour has their patrons "slinging bucks" to raise money for the Forest County Humane Society. This strange activity has folks tossing dollar bills at the ceiling until they stick! Owners Karen and Jay De Jarden say that for their newly opened establishment, they wanted to do a little something different from the traditional "good luck" signing of dollar bills tacked on the wall. Stop in, meet the owners, have a bite to eat, see this strange new craze and "sling a buck" for our Shelter! From now until Mudslinger’s Pub and Grills Grand Opening to be held in June, customers will be ‘slinging buck’s’. To have a little fun and to help raise needed funding for the Forest County Humane Society, stop in Mudslinger’s to see how many dollars you can help stick to the ceiling.
