Cadott Village Board

Residents question
new business impact

After an unseasonably warm December with highs reaching near 50 degrees, 2015 came in with an arctic
chill, dropping temperatures well below zero most nights and some days. The Wisconsin Department of
Military Affairs (DMA) predicts dangerously cold wind chills for the week, with high temperatures in the
single digits, and low temperatures falling to -15 degrees. The DMA says bitterly cold overnight wind chill
readings of -20 to -35 degrees should be widespread across the state from Tuesday morning through
Thursday morning. A late January warm-up is expected, with highs reaching the mid-30s for several
days, then dropping back to the low teens.

Lake Holcombe Town Board

Business Development Project discontinued

By Ginna Young
At the monthly Lake Holcombe Town Board meeting Jan.
5, the board voted to discontinue the Lake Holcombe Business Development Project.
A statement from Lake Holcombe Town attorney Brian
Nodolf recommended no action be taken at this time after the
project failed to produce a developer policy, and a dedicated
marketing development team.
I guess Id have to agree thats the best way to go, said
Robert Bayerl, board chairman. Those were two demands
Brian (Nodolf) had talked to them about and they didnt
come up with it. If the new board coming in wants to take it
on, thats up to them.
The project, spearheaded by J.D. Kirkman, and Paul and
Julie Gilbertson, was intended to bring retail and manufacturing to the area.
I certainly would have liked to have seen it happen, but
they didnt come through, Bayerl said. It would have been
up to the town to be responsible for up to $1 million in loans
and grants, and it had to be safe and in order.
The board also acted on the purchase of a floor scrubber
for the Lake Holcombe Town Hall. The current scrubber is
30 years old, and parts are no longer available for repair of
the machine.

On the recommendation of Bruce Jones, Lake Holcombe

Town roadman, the board discussed the purchase of an Advance walk-behind scrubber for $6,135, which includes delivery, set-up and instructional use.
According to reports on the machine, the Advance scrubber
will maneuver closer to the wall and registers, and remove
wax build-up better than older models.
This is what Tom Hayden and the guys up at the school
use and theyve had really good luck with theirs, said Jones.
All in all I think its a very good investment for the town; if
we can get 15 years out of this or better, its a good investment.
I think it sounds like a pretty good machine, said Barry
Hoke, board supervisor. Ill make a motion we buy it.
After a unanimous vote, the board agreed to purchase the
machine from Hill Yard cleaning resources in Eau Claire.
As a notice to the public, there is no February board meeting, and the next monthly meeting will be held Thursday,
March 19.
A town caucus is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 20, with the
primary election set for Feb. 19. All five board positions are
on the ballot, which includes chairman, supervisors, clerk
and treasurer. Chairman Bayerl, and supervisors Hoke and
John Bell have filed non-candidacy papers for their positions.

A Cadott Village Board public hearing Jan. 5, for a zone
change request at 531 N. Main Street, led to some uproar
from surrounding neighbors who said they didnt feel comfortable putting a business in their residential area.
I bought my home in a residential area thinking that it
would continue to be a residential neighborhood, said Jeremy Nawrocki, Cadott resident.
In a previous board meeting, Nov. 17, Melinda Murkley
and Liz Pitsch, Cadott residents, discussed plans to put in a
full spa and salon, including a community room and above
apartments at the vacant lot on Main Street. In order to begin
the initial plans for the business, the area needed to be
changed from single family residential to business.
The surrounding neighbors to the vacant lot, including
Nawrocki, said they felt an increase in traffic and cars would
be an issue to an already congested area.
With all the extra traffic and stuff, its going to make it a
nightmare for everybody, said Jordon Vizer, Cadott resident.
The vacant double lot is 120x120, and Murkley says the
building is going to be 40x80, allowing a 25 foot set back
from the surrounding property lines and alley ways.
Ithink this is going to be awesome for our town,
Murkley said. It is going to bring a lot of business.
Linda Travaglio, Cadott resident, said the nearby Leiser
Funeral Home already has their own traffic and parking issues, so another business would be too much.
Murkley says she assures the neighbors there will be
enough room for parking, and they will do whatever they can
to accommodate the community.
Bart Chapek, board member, asked Murkley if she would

working on city projects around town. Among the
new faces is Derek Braun (left) of Greenwood, who
started his first official day, Jan. 5. On the right, Ben
Modl, city employee since 2013, has just completed
a Merchant Job Training and Safety Program for
power line personnel. John Westaby, Cornell utility/public works supervisor, says the newest employees will be instructed on the workings of the
city to prepare for retiring workers in the near future.

Discrimination isnt the right way, but its the only way we know
Thursday, January 8, 2015


By Monique Westaby
Managing Editor
Black man shot by
white officer.
Female politician wins
Store accused of racism
after posting sign.
Over the past several years, and especially
the last few months, it seems the world has
become over-obsessed with labeling. Adjectives are used to describe everything from
the color of someones clothes, to a persons
race, gender and lifestyle choices.
Some scenarios warrant detailed descriptions. If a person robs a bank, details are
needed to apprehend the suspect. Listing
things such as race and gender help law enforcement identify the person responsible.
But what about elections? News stories?
Every day life? Is it necessary to make the
distinction if someone is black or white,
male or female?
When Pres. Barack Obama was elected to
office, it not only made headlines that he
was elected as the new president, but rather
that a black president had been elected. Voters checked his box because he was black.
Phrases like, Its time we have a black
president, and We need a black president
to show how far weve come with racism,
were slung around before and after the election. Even John McCain, Obamas opponent, referenced in his concession speech
how far America had come from its racial injustices.
As the impending elections loom in the
near future, the same concept has been said
for Hilary Clinton and other females expressing interest in a presidential position.
Voters have expressed choosing a female
candidate merely because they are female.
While overcoming racism (and sexism)

has come a long way, and unfortunately we

still have a long way to go, making the distinction between one person over another because of something they cannot change, like
race or gender, only drags us back to where
we were.
In the article Racism is the problem, not
seeing colors or difference, E.J.R. David argues that seeing color is not the reason
racism exists.
David goes on to say: Seeing color is not
racism. Racism is when we regard one color
as superior, better, more acceptable, more
desirable and ideal than other colors. So,
pretending or choosing to not see color will
not solve racism; colorblindness will just ignore racism and maintain it.
By definition, David is correct on racism.
But continuing to distinguish someone just
because of their skin color, like recent media
has done with shootings and other stories, is
the beginning of a path weve tried so hard
to veer away from.
No matter their political views, a person
should not be elected merely because they
are black, white, male, or female. When
George W. Bush was elected, did headlines
read White President defeats white Incumbent? Or, when Obama was elected, was the
distinction made he was male? Because it

In response, other online users questioned
how requesting everyone to remove hoodies
was considered racism. The IJReview article
went on to note: Americans have been subjected to dress codes for entering nearly
every store and restaurant: no shirt, no
shoes, no service.
Clearly the store made no direct comments toward one race over another, but
our over-labeling society turned it into discrimination. Regardless of the arguments
surrounding the sign, the maelstrom surrounding the Family Dollar store policy
seemingly forced the local store owners
hands: The signs in question have been
taken down, according to IJReview.
The race/gender debate continues, and
most likely always will. When any newsworthy, or not newsworthy, event happens,
and more than one race or gender is involved, it unfortunately will always be an
If America could get past labeling, past
choosing someone over another because of
race or gender, then maybe we can move
forward into a world without discrimination.
Until then, racism and sexism will remain
the only pathway we, and future generations,
will know.

What would you change for the New Year?

With Jan. 1 come and

money, getting more organized or quitting a

bad habit, but according to the University of
Scranton, Journal of Psychology, only 8 percent accomplish their resolutions.
The data also found the number one resolution is losing weight, meaning physical appearance is something people most often
want to change.
A short promotional video posted on Facebook asked: If you could change one thing
about your body, what would it be?
The question had several answers from 50
adults and children in the video.
Nearly every grown up answered with a
physical trait. Only one? asked one
In the four minute video, Comfortable, the
adults said they would have clearer skin, a
smaller forehead, bigger eyes, or remove
pregnancy-related stretch marks.
The kids, meanwhile, struggled to even
think of an answer as they shrugged and answered with hmm
One boy said he would like a shark mouth
so he could eat a lot of stuff, another
wanted legs like a cheetah so he could run
faster, and one girl thought teleportation
would be nice.
Yet another girl provided the answer many
adults wish they had the courage to say: I
dont think theres anything to change.
The video is intended to point out how
easy it is to feel self-conscious and insecure
about personal appearances, said Jason Y.
Lee, co-founder of Jubliee Project, the nonprofit organization that made the clip.
We just wanted to make a film that really
encourages you to be comfortable and confident in your own skin, he says in the
I like my body actually, said one child,
who added she wouldnt change nothing
else just having a mermaid tail.
If you were asked this question, would
you answer with more than one physical
trait? When and where do we get our body

image insecurities?
According to dosomething.org, 91 percent
of women are unhappy with their bodies and
resort to dieting to achieve their ideal body
shape. The website also says only 5 percent
of women naturally possess the body type
often portrayed by Americans in the media.
Media, social and peer pressures influence
the way people see themselves. Their mental
perception of what they look like can become distorted, leading them to engage in
risky behaviors when they think they dont
measure up to the impossible goal set in
front of them.
Innocent children become insecure teens,
then worry about their appearance as adults.
What do we do to stop this?
Like the video, we must be comfortable
and confident in our own skin. Dont compare to the bodies on the big screen or even
the next door neighbor.
Appreciate the good in you.
The new year has already begun, and
many of you have probably already chosen
a resolution. But heres a thought, instead of
picking a resolution with unrealistic expectations, or choosing one that changes something about your outside appearance, make
one that will make you a better person, help
someone else or make the world a better
Outside appearance is only one aspect of
a person. If you only focus on a physical trait
you want to change about yourself, is it really going to be helpful?
Volunteer to help others, manage your finances better, take a vacation or get a better
education. The possibilities are endless on
how you can improve yourself in 2015. It
doesnt have to mean changing your looks,
maybe you could just be healthier in other
Its easier said than done, but going back
to only wishing we could run fast like a
cheetah, sounds way better than hating a part
of our appearance.

letter to the editor;

I am appalled at the way people have no respect for our police force throughout the country which includes of course our
own Chippewa County.
How many other professions that people have chosen where
they go to work and some one may be shooting at them or trying to run them down?
I have the privilege of having a police scanner. I pray when
the calls come in for the EMTs and the police calls for someone who is threatening to take their life or they have an accident where people are seriously injured.
aside when they deal with these serious situations.
I realize that much of the unrest is caused by communist
agitators in our country who are paid to act the way they are.
Because someone jumps off a bridge does not mean we have
to do the same!

well as the EMTs. When I see a soldier, I tell him THANK
YOU FOR SERVING. These same people are serving our
communities to keep us safe as is possible to be safe in these
trying days.

Tow truck operator killed while working on the Interstate.

Troopers cruiser hit by out-of-control vehicle.
The Wisconsin State Patrol wants to put an end to tragic
headlines like these, which is why the Move Over Law is in
existence. Drivers must provide a safety zone for stopped law
enforcement and other emergency vehicles
Drivers have a legal and moral responsibility to help protect those who must work on the side of busy roads while
fast-moving vehicles pass by just a few feet away, says Wisconsin State Patrol Captain Jeffrey J. Frenette, Northwest Region Eau Claire Post. To prevent needless deaths and
injuries, drivers must comply with Wisconsins Move Over
Law, which provides a safety zone for workers on the side of
By law, drivers are required to shift lanes if possible, or
slow down when encountering a law enforcement vehicle,
ambulance, fire truck, tow truck, highway maintenance vehicle or utility vehicle with its warning lights flashing.
On Interstate highways and other divided roads with multiple directional lanes, drivers must vacate the lane closest to
the vehicles if safe to do so.
If the road has a single directional lane or you cant safely
move over because of traffic, says Frenette, you must reduce your speed until safely past the vehicle.
A citation for a Move Over Law violation costs $263.50,
with three demerit points added to your drivers license.
During winter months, law enforcement officers, tow
truck operators and others frequently must respond to crashes

State ends 14 with least

traffic deaths in 82 years
Wisconsin ended 2014 with 491 traffic fatalities, the lowest
number of deaths and the first time below 500 fatalities since
1943, according to preliminary statistics from the WisDOT.
State traffic deaths in 2014 were also down approximately
7 percent from 2013, when 527 people died.
There is no single factor that led to this reduction in traffic
fatalities to the lowest total since 1943 when the number of
vehicles and the miles traveled on Wisconsin roads were a
fraction of what they are today, said WisDOT Secretary
Mark Gottlieb. We know that the majority of serious crashes
are caused by bad driving habits and irresponsible decisions.
Therefore, motorists deserve a great deal of credit for saving
their own lives and lives of others by slowing down, paying
attention, buckling up and driving sober.
David Pabst, director of the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety, says one factor that contributed to the reduction was the use of safety belts, which reached an all-time
high in 2014, with nearly 85 percent of drivers and passengers buckling up. However, Wisconsins safety belt use rate
still lags behind the national average of 87 percent and is
below neighboring states, all of which have safety belt use
rates of more than 90 percent.
Although the figures for alcohol-related fatal crashes in
2014 wont be available for a few months, Pabst says deaths
because of alcohol-related crashes in Wisconsin have declined dramatically in the past 10 years, from 348 fatalities
in 2003, to 185 in 2013.
Another major traffic safety improvement last year was
the reduction in motorcyclists fatalities, Pabst said. There
were 74 motorcyclists killed in crashes last year, which was
the lowest number since 2001.

Frenette said. Officers and other workers are in danger of

highways from serious injuries and deaths.

Heart Healthy Tips to

Prevent Heart Disease

By Jenny Nereng, physical therapist,

Cornell Area Care Center

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and

women, and approximately 600,000 people in America die
yearly as a result of it. You can protect your heart by
regularly monitoring your blood pressure and becoming educated on how to interpret blood pressure readings.
Normal blood pressure: Systolic (top number) less
than 120 and diastolic (bottom number) less than 80.
Pre-hypertension (pre-curser to being diagnosed
with high blood pressure): Systolic 120-139 and diastolic 80-89.
Hypertension (High blood pressure): Systolic greater
than 140 and diastolic greater than 90.
Blood pressure readings of 180 or greater for the systolic and 110 or greater for the diastolic are considered a hypertensive crisis and emergency medical
care should be sought immediately.
scheduling yearly physicals with your doctor and following your doctors instructions regarding medication.
Also, have your cholesterol checked regularly as elevated
cholesterol can cause blocking of arteries and increase risk
of heart attack and stroke.
eating a healthy diet low in salt, fat and cholesterol,
and rich in fruits and vegetables. Contact your doctor with
questions regarding a healthy, balanced diet.
exercising regularly. Thirty minutes a day of exercise,
five times a week, will decrease your risk of developing
heart disease. If you are unable to tolerate 30 minutes of
continuous exercise, it is OK to exercise for shorter durations, and increase frequency (10 minutes of walking three
times a day, or 15 minutes of bike riding two times a day).
If you have heart problems, contact your doctor prior to
beginning any exercise routine.
stopping smoking. Smoking increases blocking in your
arteries and decreases your bodys oxygen supply, which
your body needs to function correctly.
knowing the warning signs.
Heart Attack: chest discomfort, discomfort in other
areas of the upper body, shortness of breath with or
without chest discomfort, cold sweats, nausea, light
headedness and/or back or jaw pain.
Stroke: face drooping, arm weakness/numbness
and/or difficulties with speech.
Contact 911 immediately if you notice any of these
symptoms. It could be the difference between life
and death.

Holcombe Happenings

of the
Heather Frisingers
First Grade

To end 2014 Heather Frisinger said her first grade Cadott class enjoyed an all-school sing-along in the
new gym, a class party with book exchange, as well as other activities with the Cadott High School Student Council. The students returned to school the first week in January, and said they are excited to start
learning about interesting and funny penguins in science. Frisinger says in language arts, the class
has been learning about what makes a community. If you ask the class what their favorite part of the day
is, they will probably say recess. Students say they are hoping for more snow in the new year to build
forts and make snowmen. The first graders wish everyone a happy and healthy 2015.

I hear reports of great fishing at the mouth of the Jump
River. I cant imagine with minus 20 degrees anyone out in
an ice shack. Whatever happened to all the global warming?
Many are sick with colds, flu and strep throat.
Janice Craig had the pleasure of ministering to the residents
of the Cornell Area Care Center Dec. 31. Her pastor was sick
and didnt want to give it to any one. It is easy to sing the old
hymns they all like and everyone knows. It was such an
honor to give back to the residents as she knows having been
in a nursing home two times what days are like.
The next monthly meeting of the Holcombe Seniors Club
will be held Jan. 14. They will meet at the Holcombe United
Methodist Church at noon, with potluck. The theme this
month will be snowball and snowmen. Come and join them;
they have so much fun.
The Holcombe Helping Hands Club will meet at 1:30 p.m.,
Jan. 15, at Ruby Gettings home to tie quilts and discuss their
plans for the year, and how they can be of a greater benefit
to the county.

Words of inspiration for these modern times from
members of our Religious communities
By Pastor Dan Gilboy
New Hope Assembly of God Cornell, Wis.

New year, New plan

Do you ever feel like you go through life spinning your
wheels? You are barely surviving, much less getting
ahead. As we enter a new year, its a good time for reflection and planning. Ask yourself, What are some areas in
my life that I could focus on and improve? If we never
set any goals then we probably arent going to improve
in any areas. We dont accidentally get better at something or accidentally work through a problem we focus
on an area and overcome it. What are your goals for
2015? We should all have something we are working toward. Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision the people perish.
Most of us make New Years resolutions. They are
some sort of vague ideas that will help us, but usually
they are too lofty and we give up on them by Jan. 3. Be
specific. Rather than saying I want to exercise more or
I want to spend more time reading the Bible set a specific goal like I want to exercise twice a week for 30
minutes or I want to spend at least 15 minutes a day
reading the Bible. Whatever you are doing now, increase
what you are doing today or did in 2014. Maybe your
goal is to stop doing something that is hurting you or
those around you. Tell someone. Find a friend or tell your
spouse, I dont want to keep doing ___ and I see that its
hurting our family. I want to change. When we tell
someone it really helps solidify our decisions and can
help us bring change into our life. They can encourage
you and check up on you. Pray and ask God to help you
change. With his help we can overcome any obstacle in
our life. He can help us overcome or accomplish things
we never could on our own strength. (1st John 5:14-15)
May 2015 find us passionate about the things that will
outlast this lifetime.

Life On The Family Farm

A Disappointing Surprise Under the Christmas Tree


Dumb and
Dumber To

gifts under the Christmas tree. So as the days go by in December, more and more gifts get put under the tree.
Since I had a blower bought, and Joshua was so looking forward to the new blower because of all the troubles he had had
with the old one, I decided to put a picture of it into a box.
I put a note in with it telling him it was for him to use and
then wrapped it up. I knew this would really bless him. Then
over time, I put more gifts under the tree for him.
The pile of presents under the tree continued to grow. Now
a lot of the gifts under our tree dont cost a lot, but its the love
with them that counts. We all love to give gifts and we all love
to open them.
Everything was going fine, until a few days before Christmas.
The dealer called me on the phone early one morning and said
he couldnt sell me the blower at that price. I was shocked.
I said, What? We had agreed on the price and you told me,
Yes, he said, but I cant keep that deal. You see I cant get
that blower for the price I thought I could. Somehow theres
been a mistake in the computer and its going to cost me more,
so I have to have $400 more from you.
I was shocked that he wouldnt keep his word and said,
To my amazement, a few hours later he drove into my yard
with a bunch of invoice sheets. He told me he thought he had
better stop in and explain the situation to me.
With that he showed me on the papers that the blower was
costing him $400 more than what he originally figured. As I
quickly glanced at his sheets I was absolutely amazed.
He told me originally that he was only making $200-$300
over the invoice price. Now, as I looked at his sheets I saw that
he was making well over $1,000 more.
I quickly pointed this out to him and his face turned color.
He realized in trying to justify himself, he had made a big mistake in showing me his paperwork. He said a few more words

By Tom Heck
For many years, we had a forage blower we used to blow
chopped hay into our big silo. Over the last several years, we
had a lot of problems with it.
We finally decided it was time to get rid of it and get a new
blower. All four of us were in favor of that, especially Joshua,
since he was the one who used it the most.
Joshua had already been looking at machinery advertisements
and reading up on the different blowers on the market. He had
his selection narrowed down to two different ones.
So with that, I got a lot more information on the two and
priced them at local machinery dealerships. Men from the dealerships came out to our farm
last year in early December,
and looked at our old blower
that we were trading in and
gave us price quotes.
The one that we liked best
turned out to be a little
cheaper than the other one,
which really surprised us. But
its OK to be surprised that
way once in a while. So we set
our focus on getting that one.
I called that dealer up a few
days later and told him I
would take it for the agreed
upon price. He said, Sold.
Well deliver it in the spring.
Rated PG-13
So we were all really happy
here that we were getting what

a good price.

Now, in our family, we love
to give each other lots of good

bye. With that, he left.

Now I couldve paid the extra money, but I refused to do so.
The man had outright lied to me and he broke his word. The
Bible says a man ought to keep his word and not break it, even
if its to his own hurt.
Needless to say, I havent done any business with him since,
nor do I intend to in the future. For if a man will lie and break
his word over a little bit of money, how can you trust him at all?
So now I was faced with a problem: in a Christmas present
under the tree, I had a note to Joshua telling him that I had gotten
a new blower for him to use this next year. And I had no idea
what present it was in. So I couldnt go under the tree and get
rid of it.
Well, Christmas came and we opened our presents. When
Joshua opened the blower present he was surprised and super
happy. He had no idea that I was going to put that under the tree
for him. But then I had to tell him the whole story.
The expression on his face just fell. I went on to tell him I
was going to try and get that model blower from some other
dealer. I told him I couldnt guarantee that I could get one, but
that I would do my best. Joshua understood and took it well.
It wasnt long after that Joshua started looking for other dealers that carried that line of equipment. He found one close by
that I didnt know even carried it.
I called him up and shortly thereafter he came to our farm.
He looked at our old blower and gave me a price quote for a
new one. Now was I ever in for a surprise.
He quoted me $850 less than what the other dealer originally
quoted me. I bought it right there on the spot. And true to his
word, when spring came he delivered us our new blower.
Joshua was all smiles, he got his big Christmas present after
all, and I must say that the new blower worked excellently. Since
then he has thanked me a number of times for getting it and we
are all thankful that we didnt get it from a man we couldnt

Wrestlers take sixth at Northern Badger Classic

By Kayla Peche
The Cadott Hornets Wrestling team placed sixth in Division 3 and 17th overall at the Northern Badger Classic held
in River Falls.
The boys wrestled hard and keep getting better, said Josh
Spaeth, Cadott head coach.
Cadotts Austin Najbrt, a senior, grabbed a third-place
finish at 126 pounds, and defeated the No. 1 ranked
wrestler in Division 2.
Austin wrestled with a lot of heart and determination
this weekend, Spaeth said. Austin lost a heartbreaking match to two-time state champion Cal
Gerber by the score of 4-0. In my eyes he
dominated most of the match.
Najbrt finished the tournament with

game against the Prairie Farm Panthers. Seng led
the team with points for the night, banking 23 of 74.

It was guys just not hitting the right

Tournament gives
Chiefs good outlook
By Kayla Peche
The Glenwood City Classic basketball tournament may not
have brought the Cornell boys basketball team a win, but junior Cortland Spletter says the first game showed the team
what they are capable of.
If we can play every game like we played on Monday,
Spletter said, we will be hard to beat.
Dec. 29 vs. Somerset (Glenwood City Classic)
At Glenwood City, the Chiefs took on Somerset, for part
one of the holiday tournament.
Spletter says Cornell played well against this tough team,
and they need to keep that momentum.
Cornell fought hard but Somerset senior Heaven Hunt was
too much for the Chiefs to handle, scoring 31 points himself.
The Chiefs were defeated by Somerset, 54-72.
Sophomore Noah Nohr scored 21 points for Cornell with
Spletter adding 15.
Dec. 30 vs. Osceola (Glenwood City Classic)
Spletter said game two against Osceola was not as positive
for the team.
After the first quarter, Cornell was only down by seven
points, but the next few quarters the Osceola defense kept
them under three baskets each period.
I think overall we played alright, but we couldve been
better, Spletter said.
With only 25 total points, Cornell was defeated by Osceola,
who scored 63 during the game.
Sophomore Colton Hetke led the Chiefs with five points
while Spletter and sophomore Trenton Glaus each had four.

Season high score with double points

By Kayla Peche
The Lake Holcombe Chieftain Girls Basketball team received another shot against Prairie Farm Jan. 5, and this time
they had home court advantage.

Unfortunately, the Chieftains still havent found the winning formula, but put up a season-high point total in the loss,
32-59, and doubled their output from their last game, a 1631 fall against Prairie Farm.
Lake Holcombe jumped to an early lead on the Panthers,
using baskets from junior Sara Stender and sophomore Hannah Lee to lead 4-2 early. Prairie Farm responded with a 150 run that stretched into the second quarter.
We couldnt get a good run to go and last long enough,
said Jay Geist, Lake Holcombe head coach.
The Chieftains reduced the Panthers lead to fewer than 10
points late in the second quarter when junior Jordan Geist
came away with a steal and a layup to bring the Chieftains
within nine points at 24-15.
We just started hustling and we hit a few shots while running the offense right, Geist said. We made just a few adjustments on defense at the end of the first quarter to start
helping them out.
After trading baskets in the beginning of the third, Prairie
Farm put the game out of reach and didnt trail by fewer than
20 points the rest of the way.
Jordan Geist had a team-high 12 points for Lake Holcombe
while Lee, who fouled out late in the fourth quarter, finished
in double figures at 11. Stender followed with four points.
Geist says that going forward the Chieftains focus is simple putting more points on the board.
Weve just got to put the ball in the basket, its that simple, Geist said. We had opportunities, we didnt put it in.

Cornell girls take on Glenwood City Classic

By Kayla Peche
Marcus Leland, Cornell Chiefs Girls Basketball head
coach, says although the team didnt get a win during a twoday tournament in Glenwood City Dec. 29 and 30, they still
played really well.

I am still proud of how the girls played overall, Leland

Dec. 29 vs. McDonell Central (Glenwood City Classic)
The Chiefs suffered defeat during their first game of the
tournament against McDonell Central, 52-64.
We played really well against them, said Leland. But
McDonell shot the ball really well.
Junior Elizabeth Sproul led Cornell with 21 points. Seniors
Jane Hickethier and Makenzie Ewings each had nine points.
Dec. 30 vs. Glenwood City (Glenwood City Classic)
Cornell took on the hosting team, Glenwood City, during
the second day of the classic.
The Chiefs kept the score close throughout the game, but
fell, 41-54, to end the tournament.
Leland says the team just couldnt handle the pressure very
well and thats what led to the loss.
Sophomore Alexis Short led the team with eight points,
followed by Sproul with six. Seniors Samantha Sippy and
Ewings each had five.
The girls traveled to Winter Jan. 8, for an East Lakeland
Conference game, before bringing it back home Jan. 13, to
take on Flambeau.

Its a Girls Hunting

By: Monique Westaby
A Youths Curiosity
It was the second night of
coon season, and following
the 15 coon adventure from the night before, our spirits
were high. I messaged our friend Jerry to join my husband
and me, and told him to be at the homestead by dark.
His car pulled into the driveway just as night fell, and
I, of course, was still in my pajamas on the couch.
After finally getting everything together GPS, goodie
bag, shock collars, tracking collars, lights, gloves, knives,
scale and camera I pulled my brand new boots over my
jeans, buttoned up my flannel, and gave the boys a
thumbs up. I was ready.
We headed to the neighbors to pick up two more passengers, including Kendra, a nine-year-old who was more
than excited to join the hunting crew. They followed us
down the road and we pulled off next to a small field.
Just a month or so prior, we had been in this same field,
helping look for a black bear a hunter thought he had shot.
Wisconsin law allows the use of a dog to track a shot bear
at night, as long as the dog remains on a leash and no guns
are carried.
Cordellia, our black and tan bear hound, tried her best
but the mud and cornfield proved too much and we never
found the bear. In her defense, there was no blood trail either, so the bear lived to be seen another day. We only
hoped tonight wasnt that day.
Blaze and Chaos, our two strictly coon dogs, jumped
out of the truck and took off into the small field. After
turning Cordellias collar on and off several times, we finally picked it up and off she went, barking with her sisters.
Kendra asked question after question about what was
happening. More than happy to respond, I explained what
the dogs were doing, why they were barking and what we
wanted them to do.
Several questions later, the three dogs crossed the desert
town road and headed to a bean field, just a few yards
down from where we parked.
I showed Kendra the GPS, and explained we had permission to be on both sides of the road. After a short run,
the three dogs started showing treed on the GPS, but their
barking said otherwise.
How do you know by their barking if they have a raccoon or not, our young passenger asked.
They bark different, Scott explained.
The dogs were only about 100 yards away, but sounded
400 yards in the distance. And then, someone mentioned
the unsafe fallen down barn in that area, a perfect coon
havenand dog trap

The Cadott Hornets Girls Fourth Grade Basketball team finished play in Bloomer for the last three
games of the season. Coach Karen Moldrem says the team made some great strides and worked hard
all season. The fourth grade team, left to right, in front, are, Hannah Woodford, Holly Nesvacil, Anna
Shakal, Breanna Check, Lauryn Goettl, Anna Glenz and Madison Mayry; in the back, are, coach Kari

An Outdoorsmans Journal By Mark Walters

2014 and Beyond
Hello friends,
This is my annual summary of the past years highlights, and
some thoughts on what I will do in 2015.
I participate in camping trips every month of the year, and last
winter was brutal for man, beast and fish. In the 25 years I have
been writing this column, last winter was the first time I saw
massive amounts of outdoorsmen say to heck with it by midJanuary, and spend more time inside than they normally would
Because of the 40 inches of ice, and 2 to 4 feet of snow on the
ice, there was very little oxygen left in the water, which shuts
down fish feeding. Simply put, when the lake you are fishing is
running out of oxygen, the fish in it quit feeding. If the oxygen
level gets too low (shallow lakes are hit hardest), the fish in it
die. The warm spell we just experienced should keep a good bite
going well into the winter of 2015.
Last June I returned to Shultz Lake in northwest Ontario,
Canada, where I have flown to, and fished with family and
friends since 1982. There is a portage lake that can be reached
by walking from Shultz, and it has lake trout in it. Until the summer of 2013, no one in our gang had ever caught one.
I was fishing with my 13-year-old daughter, Selina, when we
broke ice on that subject. Last year I watched my nephew, Riley
Schuster, net a beautiful 30 inch laker for Selina.
The story behind the story is that I had a surprise for Selina; I
was having it mounted for her for a Christmas present. I was at
deer camp when my taxidermist called and said my laker was
not a laker, but actually a brook trout. My friends, the state record
brook trout is 24 inches.
I contacted some friends in early December and was told if
this was a brookie, it was going to be huge news. My taxidermist,
who is a very respected man, put his guarantee on it that Selina
had a world-class trophy. I made some calls and had a good
friend with the WisDNR work with another. They
determined that Selinas brookie was a laker.
On Christmas day, I gave
Selina her mount, which is
truly beautiful. As of this writing, she has never heard the
story I just wrote.

I watched my 21-year-old stepson, Joey Dushek, go through

the grueling and expensive sport of bear baiting last May through
early September as he had his first bear tag.
I helped Joey early in the game, but he soon proved he didnt
need me. Once the season rolled around, I was Joeys cameraman and filmed him harvesting a 260 pound bear with his bow.
The footage is awesome, as is the memory.
Mid-October, I had my first wolf tag. My buddy, Jody Bigalke, and I spent six days beating the heck out of my truck and
our bodies. On the last day of the season, as I pulled traps, one
of them had a beautiful wolf in it. Unless you pursue these critters, you cannot even describe the emotion and satisfaction of
harvesting a wolf.
About all I can say about the loss of our wolf hunting and trapping seasons this past December is, I do not trust our current
president or anyone in his administration. They ignored biology.
If you think Wisconsin has dwindling numbers of grey wolf, you
are mistaken.
This past week I hunted bobcat for the first time, as I received
my first bobcat tag. I will hunt them until I put a tag on one, or
the season closes January 31. I am hunting with The Bloomer
Houndsmen, and am very impressed.
Selinas, or mine, well, our golden retriever, Fire, is bred and
due around January 10.
Fire looks to have a belly full of pups and no matter what the
numbers are, we are going to have a really cool January and February as we watch the pups next to the woodstove in our living
On the matter of the wolf hunting and trapping season removal for those of you who think it is cool that hunters and
trappers cannot harvest a limited number of grey wolf, what our
WisDNR biologists determine works in each zone. I have spent
more time camping in more locations in Wisconsins forests and
marshes than most people.
Grey wolf numbers have to
be managed by hunters and
Common sense does not always rule the day.

A real deer story? Ithink?

A guest outdoor column by Chuck Peterlik, Cadott
This past deer hunting season was quite historical, or at
least hysterical.
Iwas back up on the old deer stand on the hill north of
Drywood. After missing at least a half dozen deer, Idecided
Imust be crowned the worlds worst deer hunter. It was so
bad I decided there must be something wrong with my deer
rifle an old 30-30 Ive had 100 years.
So, I went and got a target and put it down where Iwas
shooting at the deer. Naturally, when Ishot at it, Ihit right
next to the bullseye. Now, what does that tell you? Youre
right, something is wrong with the shooter, not the gun.
One morning Icalled my brother Kenny and asked him to
come up and sit with me on the hill.
I think the neighbors are going to drive our brothers
woods and Ican use all the help I can get, I said.
Sure,he said. Ill be right up there.
Shortly after Ken showed up, his son-in-law, Allen, from
Tomahawk, also showed up; the more the merrier.
Its 10:30 in the morning and Allen is complaining about
over sleeping at Kennys place.
Hey, whats wrong with the clock in that bedroom I was
in? Allen asks.
Oh,said Kenny. That clock dont work.
I give Allen a chair and he sits there awhile and I says,
Hey Allen, what kind of gun you got there?
Its a little 44 Magnum,he says.
Im thinking its not too good a gun to shoot a couple hundred yards, but it must be a good brush gun. Ipoint down
the in the creek bottom by my brother Dannys old farm machinery graveyard and tell Allen, Why dont you go down
there by that old green corn planter? You can see down in
the brush over the creek and maybe get a shot at one down
Sure, he says, and goes down there.
All of a sudden we hear a shot. Pretty soon we dont see
Allen anymore; he must be down in the brush and Ken says,
Hey, Ibet Allen shot and maybe he got one down there.
Pretty soon, here comes Allen out of the brush and back
up the hill.
Anybody got a knife? he asks.I shot a big doe across
the creek in Dannys corn field. Ya, I could hardly see her
through the brush, but Iwhistled and she stopped and I got
a bead on her and down she went right there.
Ken and Allen go back down there and Iradio my son,
Lance, who has the four-wheeler. I tell him to go down in
the cornfield, behind the barn by the creek. Allen just shot
a big doe and you can drag it out for him.
Pretty soon I see him dragging the deer across the cornfield into brother Dans yard and after a bit, I see Allen and
Kenny go down the road with Allens deer on the back of
Kens car. Theyre going over to Allens mother-in-laws
place for Thanksgiving dinner.
Now, Ilook at my watch and its not even noon yet, and
Im thinking, hey, he wasnt even here an hour and a half.
He didnt get here until 10:30 and he shoots a nice deer and
his hunting season is over just that quick.
Now what is the moral of this story? Or is there one? All
these years, Ive been told to get the bigs ones, you got to
get up early, 5 a.m., get your business done and get out there
at the crack of dawn. Is it all BS or what?
Brother Ken tells me the deer Allen shot was the same one
I missed the day before.
Thanks Kenny.

Ventriloquist makes an
appearance through FVAA

Continued from Front

The Flambeau Valley Arts Association will host a performance by ventriloquist Lynn Trefzger Friday, Jan. 16, at 7:30
p.m., at the Ladysmith High School.
Trefzger has been featured on the NBC Universal comedy/documentary Im No dummy, along with Jay Johnson
and Jeff Dunham. Trefzger also has appeared throughout the
country on cruise ships at the Atlantis Resort and Casino, and
other events.
When she is not performing for audiences, she is the managing director for her family of five children and a husband.
The event is sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the state of Wisconsin
and the National Endowment for the Arts, ticket holders and
a grant from Xcel Energy.
Tickets can be purchased at the door.

be willing to not have the apartments to make more room,

and she agreed to make changes that are needed.
I want to be neighbor friendly for sure, said Murkley.
And Iknow Liz does too.
Before adjourning the public hearing, the board requested
a layout of the business with the neighboring buildings to see
exact plans.
Once Murkley brings the plans, the board can decide on
how they want to move forward.
Also on the agenda, the board received two bids for the
clearing and grubbing of trees and stumps on the land on
Tower Drive.
In a previous meeting, the board asked Rolly Tichy, public
works director, and Jeff Nussbaum, village engineer, to make
a work description for the contractors. The village recommended the project to clear up the land and make it presentable for potential business prospects.
The board approved the lower bid of $9,948 from Bowe
Trucking and Excavating, Inc., with the contingency that
Tichy reviews the bids and the engineers receive an amendment for erosion control.
