The Cornell Area Fire Department responded to

a shed fire at the
Jaramillo residence on
County Highway EE late
Thursday morning, Jan.
7. The call came in as a
barn fire in the Township
of Arthur, but once on
scene, crews discovered
it was a 30x15 shed that
housed three sheep. The
structure was a total
loss, and only one sheep
escaped, said fire chief
Denny Klass, who attributed the start of the fire
as coming from a heat
lamp. About 3,400 gallons of water were used
to supress the fire, and
crews were on scene
about an hour and a

Exciting changes
at Gordys Market
By Kayla Peche
The expression new year, new you isnt just for people
anymore, because Gordys Market, including the Cornell
store, is making some changes for the New Year.
Its very exciting, said Lance Modl, Gordys manager in
Gordys and Mega Co-op reached an agreement early January that will bring the two businesses together Mega grocery stores will become Gordys Markets, and Gordys
Express convenience stores and fuel centers will become
Mega Holidays. When this transaction is complete (late-February), Gordys will own and operate 24 grocery stores and
Mega Co-op will own and operate 33 gas stations.
Over a few discussions we decided the partnership on the
gas and grocery just seemed natural, said Jeff Shafer, president of Gordys.
As far as the Cornell gas station, Shafer said Gordys will
still operate the liquor and beer department, but Mega will
own the gas portion, with Gordys running it.
Modl said hes unsure if Gordys Express will change into
a Mega Holiday as far as appearance goes, and its still unclear if there will be any effect on the current Holiday station
across the street. Schafer says appearance and construction
will be decided later.
Both companies will be bigger and stronger as a result of
this agreement, said Mike Buck, president of Mega Co-op.
This helps ensure a positive future for both our businesses
and will allow us to focus on reinvestment, grow in a highly
competitive environment and return patronage to our cooperative
While each company remains
separate, they plan to collaborate
on new future locations and support each other with joint loyalty
programs, including the Pump
Perks and Gas Rewards program.
Customers may redeem rewards at
either a Gordys or Mega location.
Gordys is also changing their
primary wholesaler by mid-February to SpartanNash, which Shafer
says replaces Everyday Essentials
with the Our Family brand.
Our Family is a national brand,
quality product, said Shafer.
They have a very good value.
He said SpartanNash could also
add natural and/or organic brands
to stores which, depending on
space availability and demand,
could come to Cornell.
If the request is there, Schafer
said, we will definitely look into


County asks Do you want a bridge?

By Kayla Peche
If the bridge is not replaced and the old bridge is left to
stand until it falls down, the county is solely responsible for
the cost of removal, said Bruce Stelzner, Chippewa County
highway commissioner, at the Cobban Bridge public discussion Jan. 5 in Cornell. It is not funded.

The bridge as it
stands today is really
deteriorated and a liability of the county,
said Fred Anderson,
Chippewa County project manager. The
structure doesnt have
the capacity to rehabil-

itate it.
Anderson spoke to over 80 community members and explained that the bridge, built in 1908 and rehabilitated in
1995, was over 10 years past its time. He says it is in poor
structural condition because of pack rust (corrosion damage
to joints, metallic plates and other components).
After determining rehabilitation wasnt an option, Anderson and Bruce Gerland, project manager of AECOM, the engineering company working on the project, along with their
colleagues, developed four alternatives after performing a
study of the bridge and area.
Alternative 1 connects 180th Avenue to County Road TT,
extending the bridge over the Old Abe Trail and carries an
$11.2 million price tag. Because a bridge over the trail would
raise the intersection, the agency also made a modified version of this, Alternative 1b, which would cost less and minimize area impact.
Alternative 3 would be at the existing bridge location and
costs the least at $4.7 million. Gerland said although this alternative is better for schools and emergency vehicles (concluded from public comments), it would cause some wetland
and stream impacts.
Alternative 5 extends County Road R with the intersection
of 200th Avenue and County Road K. Gerland said this
would be a longer, higher and wider structure, costing the
county $7.4 million.
The study analyzed issues and impact to homes, businesses
and natural resources, concluding that Alternative 1b, modified with DNRrecommendations, was the preferred alternative.
This would connect 180th Avenue to County Road TT, and
would not affect the Old Abe Trail. The cost for this plan is

I hope they have free meals in heaven for you

By Monique Westaby
Managing Editor
Can I do a story on
you yet?
It was a familiar question at the Courier Sentinel office for the last
two years. But now, with
the loss of a Holcombe icon, those words
will no longer be said.
Late last week one of my coworkers said
Judy Teske was in the hospital with pneumonia, again, and wasnt doing well. The
following day, Judy was no longer suffering.
As I read the message, a flurry of memories came back and I immediately thought,
now I really wont be able to do a story on
her. I had tried, believe me. Every time she
walked into the office I asked, Can I do a
story on you yet?
Judy would smile, chuckle and say,
When I retire. Although she said she was
retiring in 2014 when she moved to
Chippewa Falls, she never truly did and
would never give me the scoop on Judy.
It got close, we even had a date picked out
and I was going to meet her at her Holcombe home. But a few days prior she
called and said she wanted to reschedule;
but she never let me reschedule.
I kept trying, asking every time I saw her.
As much of an integral part of the community as she was, I knew our readers would
love every word about Teske. Yearbooks
were dedicated to her, everyone knew her,
she was at everything in Holcombe. I reminded her of that but nothing seemed to
coax her into telling me her life story.
Whether it was out of annoyance or courtesy, she finally conceded to let me ask two
questions each time she came in, and I
jumped on the opportunity. Unfortunately,

the opportunities came few and far between,

and the remainder of my page of questions
will now be left unanswered.
What I learned in my short time at the
paper, is Judy began taking pictures for
Lake Holcombe School in 1989. She
quickly became a staple at home (and even
some away) games, snapping perfectly
timed photos of the athletes. She also took
pictures for the paper, attending countless
community events, not just for the school.
I met Judy in 2005, when I started my
junior year at Lake Holcombe. Id seen her
at my brothers games, carrying around her
big black camera, always in a Chieftain-purple sweatshirt. Although we had never met,
I felt like home when she was around.
You always knew she was there, yet
somehow she blended into the scenery, able
to capture that flawless moment. You would
have thought she grew up here as much as

some years of children crossed her mind.

What is your favorite part of taking pictures at Lake Holcombe? I asked, expecting some deep, profound statement that
would bring tears to my eyes.
Without a second thought, and a glimmer
of mischief in her eye, she said, When they
gave me a free meal.
Lake Holcombe lost an amazing woman
in 2014, when Judy decided to pass the lens
to me. I had big shoes to fill, and as much
as I may try, I dont know if I ever will.
Now, in 2016, the world lost an amazing
woman, but her memory will always be
there. Like a photograph printed and
framed, Judys life will forever be remembered. Her smile, her kind heart, her willingness to help will never be forgotten.
Rest in peace Judy, and if you get a
chance, send us down a photo from heaven;
I know youve already taken several.

Im not convinced Avery is guilty or innocent

Spoiler Alert.
Im an avid Netflix
watcher. Most nights,
after the kids go to bed, I
find myself flipping
through the movies for
something to watch until I
fall into a deep slumber.
I kept hearing people talk about the Making a Murderer series, so one night, as I
looked for something to watch, I came across
it. I decided to watch the documentary to see
what the hype was about.
Once Istarted the 10-part series, Icouldnt
stop. Id come home from work and have to
put it on to see what happened next; the
whole thing frustrated me.
The documentary is about Steven Avery,

she loved the people and the area.

But Judy and her husband, Dave, moved
to Lake Holcombe from the Madison area
in 1988 on a search for good fishing.
Why Lake Holcombe? I asked one day.
When Dave and I got married, we got
out a map and saw where the Chippewa
River, Flambeau River and Jump River
flowed into the Holcombe flowage, she
said. We were looking for a place to fish
and thought it would be a good spot.
Bringing only a tent, Judy said she and
Dave camped at Sportsmans Park (now the

from Manitowoc County, who served 18

years in prison for a sexual assault conviction but was exonerated when a DNA analysis proved him innocent.
Avery was released from the Stanley
prison Sept. 11, 2003, and filed a $36 million
civil lawsuit against Manitowoc County. In
2005, Avery was arrested and convicted of
the murder of Theresa Halbach, which he
claims he is framed for by the Manitowoc
Sheriffs Department.
Averys 16-year-old nephew, Brendan
Dassey, confessed to the sheriffs department
that he helped Avery murder Halbach. But
after watching the interrogation on the documentary, Im convinced they coerced his
Dassey recanted his confession later, saying they got to his head. With an IQ of 70,
Dassey believed he was going back to school
after his confession,which makes me believe he had no understanding of what was
truly going on.
Im not convinced they are guilty, but Im
not convinced they are innocent either. There
are so many things with the case that make
absolutely no sense.
For example, in Dasseys confession, he
tells the police where the supposed murder
happened and how it happened, but there
was no blood or DNA from Halbach found
If the crime was as bad as Dassey said it
was, there should have been evidence of her
blood and DNA all over that room, regardless of whether they tried to clean it up or
not. But there was not a single drop found.
I also wonder if Avery was framed because
of the key found that went to Halbachs vehicle. Her vehicle was found on his familys
property, which is also a junk yard. The key
to her vehicle was found in Averys bed-

room; not on the first initial search, but on

the sixth, and had only Averys DNAon it.
If the key was Halbachs, wouldnt her
DNA be on her own key? It makes no sense.
And then theres Averys blood vial that
was in evidence from his 1985 arrest. When
Halbachs vehicle was found on Averys
property, there were a few blood stains inside
the vehicle that turned out to be Averys.
Averys defense team found that the styrofoam packaging which contained Averys
blood vial was tampered with. The outside
and inside containers were sealed, but the
seal had been broken and resealed with
scotch tape.
There was also a hole at the top of the vial,
as if someone had inserted a hypodermic
needle into it.
Since the documentary has been released
on Netflix and has become so popular, tens
of thousands of people have signed a petition
for Avery to be exonerated.
President Barack Obama cant pardon
Avery because it isnt a federal crime, and
Gov. Scott Walker tweeted that documentary
viewers should read unanimous Court of Appeals opinions before jumping to conclusions.
Neither Avery or Dassey got a fair trial.
There was definitely some sort of set up
because theres too much that doesnt add
There are many articles going around that
the documentary was put on by people on the
defense side, that it is one-sided and that a
lot of evidence was left out.
People will have their opinions on the case
either way.
So if youre home one night and searching
for something to watch, look up Making a
Murderer on Netflix and come to your own
conclusion on what happened or didnt.

Recruits begin training

bridge could look like.

Do you want a bridge?

approximately $7 million, but a federal bridge fund will cover
80 percent of engineering and construction.
Stelzner said the cost of removing the Cobban Bridge if
left standing until it falls would be equal to the cost of a new
bridge and removal of the bridge combined ($1.5 million).
We are responsible for 20 percent of the cost, said
Stelzner. So the question really doesnt come down to, Are
you going to spend the money? The question comes down
to, Do you want a bridge?
With a map and an artists rendition of the alternative
bridge, a few people at the meeting said it was not as attractive as the current historic bridge.
Its a beautiful bridge to look at, said Stelzner of the current structure. But when you get up close and really take a
look at it, its questionable whether or not it will stay in operation until a new bridge is built.
Stelzner says for now, the county wants opinions on alternatives for the bridge; design and construction will be decided later, with earliest construction of a new bridge not for
another four years.

Bruce Gerland, project manager of AECOM, the engineering company working on the Cobban Bridge
project, discusses detailed alternatives for replacing the bridge, which crosses the Chippewa River
between Cornell and Jim Falls. Over 80 community
members attended the public hearing in Cornell
Jan. 5. After analyzing the issues and impact on
surrounding areas, the agency preferred Alternative 1b, connecting 180th Avenue and County Road

The Wisconsin State Patrol initiated 49 recruits to the State

Patrol Academy at Fort McCoy, Jan. 10, to begin an intense
25-week training program that will culminate in their graduation as troopers or inspectors July 1.
Locals Alan L. Diede, Jim Falls, and David W. Ecklor,
Timothy M. Knutson, Brock A. Rizzo and Aaron C. Rouland,
all of Eau Claire, join the 61st Recruit Class made up of 13
cadets with military service and nine female cadets.
The cadets will train full time at the State Patrol Academy
in areas such as firearms proficiency, defensive and arrest
tactics, traffic stop contacts, emergency vehicle operations
and police pursuits, said Capt. Paul Matl, director of training
at the academy. They also will receive training in communication skills, ethics, crash investigations, criminal and traffic law, as well as emergency lifesaving techniques. Their
physical, academic and hands-on training will prepare them
for law enforcement careers as either State Patrol troopers or
inspectors in one of five regions in the state.
Troopers generally patrol highways to enforce traffic safety
and criminal laws while inspectors focus primarily on enforcement of motor carrier (large trucks, buses and other
commercial motor vehicles) safety laws and regulations.

Cornell City Council

Elections headline first 2016 meeting

By Ginna Young
The new year for the Cornell City Council began Jan. 7,
with discussion of the upcoming spring elections.
Mayor Judy Talbot, and aldermen Steve Turany and Terry
Smith, are in the race as incumbents, while Glen Logan has
filed as a write-in candidate after Eb Ballinger signed his
non-candidacy papers.
Although the deadline for filing is past, city administrator
Dave DeJongh says those wishing to run can still get their
name in the mix, but write-in candidates must register prior
to the election for any votes to count.
They need to make the clerks office aware that they are
a write-in, said DeJongh.
On other agenda, DeJongh reported the city has received
quite a bit of interest from engineering companies to prepare a facility plan for Cornells wastewater treatment plant.
After touring the wastewater treatment plant in Cornell, the
interested companies talked with him.
So, start thinking how you want to go through them,
said DeJongh to the board. It doesnt have to be solely

based on price.
In talking with all of them, Ive learned something of
what they might have done in this community how they
did this one or how they rehabbed that one. You have the
ability to pick the company you best feel would take whatever approach you think is best for Cornell.
Talbot also informed council members that Al and Sue
Potaczek have applied to the Board of Zoning Appeals for
a Conditional Use Permit to construct a 30x20 storage shed
on their parcel of land on Riverside Drive. The couple previously planned to use the property to build a store to sell
firewood, antique farm implements and primitive items.
They changed their minds, said Talbot.
Acknowledging the Cornell Fire Department, council
member Jim Hodowanic complimented them for touring the
new Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative offices and
They walked through and looked at stuff in the event
there is a fire, so they knew their way around, said
Hodowanic, which is good to see.

Letter to the Editor

Letter to the editor:
Just wanted to send out a special Thank You to Shirley
Vlach for all her many years of dedicated service to all her
area readers of the Crescent Cadott news.
She took over writing the Crescent Commiseque back in
1954 when she took over from the then reporter Edna Siverling.
She then would call the local folks in the area or they
would call her and inform her of all the happenings in the
area. With that we kept up on all the new arrivals, visiting,
anniversaries, bingo and card parties, weddings and deaths
in the community.
She later took over for Edith Couey for Cadott news. Her
news will be missed by all who followed it weekly.
Thanks again, Shirley for your faithful service. You did a
great job! Your news will be missed.
Linda Dahm,
A Crescent-Cadott news follower and friend,

Lake Holcombe students in Pat Talbots third-grade class received an autographed photo of Speaker of
the House Paul Ryan and Congressman Sean Duffy. Talbot has autographed pictures of government liaisons on his classroom wall, and teaches an American Government unit each year. Because he didnt
have a photo of Ryan, Talbot contacted Duffys office and requested a copy. Duffy and Ryan obliged, and
took the photograph just for the class. Talbot says its cool of them to do that and is grateful to them.

Basketball was introduced to the Cornell School in 1916 and
games were played in the Lyric Theatre. They eventually moved
to the elementary gym in 1920. From 1936-40, Cornell won
seven district tournaments, six in a row under Lauren (L.K.
Mac) McChesney as coach.
McChesney coached for 19 years, resigning and moving into
the athletic directors position in 1956. New coach Tom
Schoonover took over the team, and led Cornell in a playoff victory over Eau Claire. The feat was overwhelming, coming from
a school of about 200 overtaking the largest school in the state
with an enrollment of about 2,000.
A Squad Coach
In an excerpt from the article Chiefs upset Abes in 56 ClasMr.
Tom Schoonover
sic, Barry Selmer writes: From overhead the floodlights beat
down on the polished oak floor of the arena at Eau Claires State Teachers College. Tension was
mounting. Voices rose as one trembling roar. Players were spread out across the floor.
The Eau Claire Old Abes led the Cornell Chiefs most of the first half, at times keeping a sevenpoint margin. At the end of the first quarter the score was 22-15. Cornell came back with 22 points
in the second quarter and at half time, the Old Abes were ahead by one point
Cornell took the lead in the first minute of the second half and kept it until the final minute
The fourth quarter score was like a horse race.
Duane Dude Helgerson knew how to stall, and he did. An exhibition of dribbling that brought
the house to its feet brought Helgerson around Eau Claire player Jack Rada
The game continued and with 30 seconds to go, Eau Claire was ahead, 65-64. An Eau Claire
player backed into Helgerson and was charged with a foul. Helgerson made both free throws with
11 seconds remaining. With one chance left, Rada dribbled up the court, shot and missed.
The final horn sounded and the Old Abes, champs of 1955, were dethroned. Pandemonium
broke loose.
The cheerleaders were out on the floor. The fans were out on the floor. Feet pounded the bleachers, the balconies. The steel beam rafters shookYvonne Reali, Sue Mittermeyer, were laughing,
sobbing, hugging.
Following the win, the Chiefs took on Osseo the next night, but were defeated, as Selmer
writes They had peaked on Friday night. Everything had gone into that game. Nothing was left
for Saturday. Team, fans, cheerleaders all were a little off, the energy level was down. And Cornell lost to Osseo 51-46. And Osseo went to state.
The 1956 team consisted of seniors Jim Payne, Jim Tyler, Vern Billiard, Bill Biss, Duane Helgerson, Tom Miller, David McChesney, Roger Webster and Bill Finses, and juniors Alden Webster,
Dick Zinsli and Raymond Miller.

Zimmerman says the program is flexible, and volunteers
can sign up for whatever days work, or have a set routine.
Volunteers need to own their own vehicle, and new participants will receive training.

seniors who may be homebound, but Zimmerman says volunteers do more than just deliver meals.

notice anything out of the ordinary, said Zimmerman. Its

Peterson steps down as

general manager of JREC
Ed Wollwert, president of the Jump River Electric Cooperative Inc. (JREC) board of directors, has announced that
current general manager Scott Peterson has requested reassignment because of health reasons.
I have made great progress in my recovery, said Peterson. However, my doctors strongly encouraged a reduction
of stress levels. Therefore, I requested that the board of directors return me to the CFO position.
Peterson will return to the CFO postion, a post he has held
in the past.
Wollwert said a regional/national search for a new general
manager has already begun, and that he and the board will
do whatever is needed to make the transition smooth and responsive to employees needs.
In recent months members have questioned a number of
existing JREC policies and on Dec. 11, five members filed a
civil lawsuit in Rusk County against eight members of the
board, asking for the reinstatement of Bill van Doorn of Ladysmith.
Van Doorn was advised in writing by the JREC attorney at
the time of his candidacy that because he had a sister-in-law
employed at JREC, the nepotism policy would be in violation
if he won. Wollwert said after van Doorn won the election,
he subsequently resigned, but the lawsuit seeks his reinstatement.
The board sought an immediate top-to-bottom legal review
of the current nepotism policy, and with the advice of legal
counsel reaffirmed Board Policy 30A; a full explanation of
the policy appears in the January 2016 issue of the Wisconsin
Energy Cooperative News.
Wollwert says it is the goal of the board and management
to become more transparent in their policies, procedures and
We want members to know they have the right to access
information about their co-op, said Wollwert. And to that
end, we will work to ensure information is released and
shared timely, including more information on the JREC website.

Cadott senior Austin Anderson donates dual reds

(red blood cells only) at an FBLAsponsored blood
drive Jan. 7. The double red cell donation uses a
special machine to collect units of red blood cells
during one donation, while returning plasma and
platelets to the donor. (Photo by Heather Dekan)

The machine used for the double red cell donation

takes 30 minutes, compared to a normal whole
blood donation which takes eight minutes. Red
blood cells are the most frequently used cells for
organ transplants, surgeries and transfusions. The
double red cell donation can be done every 16
weeks, versus the whole blood donation every
eight weeks.

Holcombe Happenings
By Janice Craig 715-595-4380
The community has lost two of its long-time residents this
past week. Judy Teske, who used to take pictures for the
Courier Sentinel, was well-known and always there whenever something was happening. Pete Guthman has been ill
for quite some time and was an active member of the Holcombe area. Sympathy is extended to each family and their
loved ones.
Many from Holcombe attended the Cornell gun show this
past weekend. There was a good turnout I understand.
Most of us are just trying to stay in and keep warm as the
temperature has been around minus 20 in the morning. We
put off doing things outside until after lunch when it is
warmer. Those who had to go to work put on lots of layers
and dressed warm.

St. Joseph School

First and second graders from Karen Roses class at St. Joseph School take a ride on the Polar Express.
The unit was created and implemented by Rose as a week-long unit involving activities and lessons using
the Polar Express. During the lesson, the students picked a noun and came up with four adjectives for
each. For example, one student had the word steam and one of their adjectives was hot. Sitting in
front of their nouns and adjectives, left to right, are Kennedy Giza, Hailey Ann Pelkey, Lucy Pries, Isabella
Giza, Chapman Eslinger, Jacob Gundlach and John Enestvedt.

Better to win at home

By Kayla Peche
It was another successful tournament week for Cadott Hornets Wrestling as they secured a fourth-place spot with two
athletes reaching the championship podium.
It is way better than winning somewhere else because you
know the people at home, said Andrew Gunderson, 126pound sophomore who won at the Jan. 9 Hornet tournament.
And its your home gym so it makes you want to win more.
Gunderson had four pinfall victories in his first matches,
one of which was in 35 seconds, advancing him to the title
match. In the title match, Gunderson defeated Melrose-Mindoro/Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeaus Les Lakey by a 13-7 decision.
Senior Brandon Pederson was also a champion in the 138pound weight class, and set up his final match after pinning
four opponents to the mat. Then, he defeated Preston Carlson,
Medford, by a 5-1 decision for his first tournament win in his
high school career.
As for the other Hornets, head coach Josh Spaeth says his
team is young, but they are gaining confidence and getting
better each week.
Bailey Gillett, sophomore, took second place in the 120pound class with a long battle in his first round against Thorps
Quade Webster, which Gillett won by major decision 10-1.
Freshmen James Pfeiffer and Mitchell Gunderson also placed
second in their weight classes, each losing to pinfalls in the
final round.
Senior Tyler Gillett finished out the top wrestlers for Cadott
when he won the third-place match by a pin in 27 seconds.
I felt the team did very good, said A. Gunderson. And
we went against good teams.
The Hornets will host Stanely-Boyd/Owen-Withee Jan. 14
for Parents Night, then will travel to Spencer Jan. 21.

By Kayla Peche
The Cornell-Lake Holcombe-Gilman wrestling team traveled for their matches this week, starting with duals against
Bruce and Shell Lake, then moving on to a tournament in
Jan. 7 vs. Bruce (W 30-14), Shell Lake (L 48-18)
Head coach Greg Sonnentag said the Wolfpack didnt
wrestle to their full potential during the Jan. 7 matchup.
It was not a good day for us, he said. We had two varsity wrestlers out sick.
There were only three matches against Bruce during the
battle at Shell Lake. Junior Matt Kostka bumped up to the
220-pound weight class and lost by decision (5-4) to Cordell
Freshman Robert Fasbender won by fall against Spencer
Keeble, and Sonnentag said sophomore Alex Gehrt fought
hard to give a technical fall vs. Walker Golubiff to defeat
Bruce, 30-14.
It was then against Shell Lake that Cornell-Lake Holcombe-Gilman began to fall to the Lakers strong team.
The boys did not wrestle to their potential as a team
against Shell Lake, said Sonnentag of the 48-18 loss. We
made too many major mistakes leading not only to loss decisions but pin falls. The boys wrestled hard, but we have to
limit those mistakes if we want to beat good teams.
Jan. 9 Cadott Tournament
During a weekend tournament in Cadott Jan. 9, the Wolfpack limited some of those mistakes, gaining a sixth-place
finish for the day.
All the wrestlers left with some success, said Sonnentag.
Junior Takoda Lee led his team in first place at 285 pounds
by pinning his way through the tournament. Lees day ended

Defensive intensity wins

game for Lake Holcombe
By Kayla Peche
The Lake Holcombe boys basketball team
spent the week on the road, starting strong
against non-conference Shell Lake, but losing momentum in the battle against conference Birchwood.
Jan. 5 vs. Shell Lake (W 67-37, non-conference)
Lake Holcombe held a large lead throughout the Jan. 5 victory against Shell Lake,
jumping ahead in the second half by over 20
I would say that the team as a whole last
night shot very well on offense, said Reece
Kinney, junior. We were also able to really
apply pressure on defense when we needed
Leading the team was junior Jeremiah
Reedy with 24 points, including a slam dunk
after a steal from half court. Senior Nick
Seng wasnt far behind, bringing in 22
Reedy says the defensive intensity is what
won them this non-conference competition,

Jan. 8 vs. Birchwood (L 74-54, conference)

After a 30-point victory against Shell
Lake, the Chieftains faced the conference
Birchwood Bobcats, who put a press on
Lake Holcombe right away, gaining an early
Sophomore Trent Novak said the team
didnt handle the pressure very well.
We continued to kill ourselves with
turnovers and didnt get rebounds like we are
capable of doing, said Novak. We got into
foul trouble which gave up a lot of points.
Despite scoring 15, Novak acquired four
fouls and his sophomore teammate Andrew
Brosted fouled out of the game.
Seng led Lake Holcombe with 19 points,
but it wasnt enough to stop the Bobcats offensive power, and the Chieftains lost 74-54,
dropping them to 2-2 in conference standings.
To get back in the conference chase,
Novak said the team needs to fix the mistakes of this game for their next match Jan.
5 against New Auburn.

Final half sparks victories for Cornell Chiefs basketball

By Kayla Peche
The Cornell boys basketball team made sparks fly during
the second half of the games this week, leading to two victories. But the teams abilities were tested Jan. 11 as they took
on Cadott in a non-conference battle.
Jan. 7 vs. Bruce (W 54-49, conference)
Cornell head coach Shawn Schoelzel said the match
against the Bruce Red Raiders Jan. 7 was tight throughout,
with nobody getting more than a five-point lead.
They (Bruce) took a lead about seven minutes left in the
game, said Schoelzel. We came back and were fortunate
enough to take a lead with about two minutes to go and held
Junior Colton Hetke led the team with 21 points, five rebounds, four assists and four steals. Juniors Noah Nohr and
Trenton Glaus each added 11 points, with Nohr leading with
nine rebounds.
Schoelzel says the Chiefs created 15 turnovers, earning a
54-49 East Lakeland Conference victory. He said sophomore
Dakota Popp did a nice job of causing those turnovers.
He had three steals, but I felt his energy jump started our
defense, said Schoelzel, who added Cornell didnt turn the
ball over very much.
Jan. 9 vs. Greenwood (W 59-52, non-conference)
The Chiefs continued the winning streak with another victory Jan. 9 against Greenwood.
We started the game out pretty flat, which can be expected
on an early Saturday afternoon game, said Schoelzel. But
we started to move the ball around well against their zone
and found Noah for a lot of easy shots. He really sparked us
in the first half with 14 points.
In the second half, Greenwood put a stop to Nohrs shooting, but Schoelzel says Popp hit two three-pointers and senior
Cortland Spletter nailed another three to jump ahead.
Greenwood responded with shots of their own, tieing the
score and moving the game into overtime.
We had a nice lead coming out of halftime, said Nohr,
who led the Chiefs with 19 points. We just started slow and
eventually picked it back up. But it took overtime to finish
them off.
Schoelzel says the defense stepped up in overtime, holding
Greenwood to two points on freethrows. After scoring the
first five points of overtime, Cornell had the game in the bag,
securing a 59-52 win.
We could have made it easier on ourselves, said
Schoelzel. We went five of 13 on the freethrow line in overtime, including missing six straight at one point. That needs

to get better.
Jan. 11 vs. Cadott (L 77-51, non-conference)
The morning before, Schoelzel said the Jan. 11 game
against Cadott would be a tough non-conference game for
the Chiefs.
It will be a good test for us to see where we sit, he said.
As the game began, Cornell started out slow, while the
Hornets began dropping their three-point shots and gaining
a large lead.
When we came out in the first half we just werent strong
enough against the zone, said Mitch Swanson, junior. But
at halftime we made some adjustments and it worked well.
Cornell closed the gap in the second half with 11 consecutive points, but were again stopped by a three-point shot

from Cadotts Nicky Nesvacil.

Every time we tried to do anything theyd hit a three
pointer, said Schoelzel. Even shots with hands in their face.
There were a lot of times where we just couldnt do anything
about it. They made a lot of good shots.
Nohr led the Chiefs with 22 points and Hetke added 15 for
the night, including three three-pointers. Both teams held the
game tight behind the outside line.
We kept the game closer but we just didnt have enough
time to get back into it, said Swanson of the 77-51 loss for
The Chiefs, who lead the East Lakeland Conference, will
host second-place ranked Birchwood Jan. 15, then travel to
Gilman Jan. 18.

Hornets focus on long-term solutions

By Kayla Peche
The Cadott Hornets Boys Basketball team may have stung
two opponents down this week, but head coach Brandon Mittermeyer said the team needs to be tougher.
Our team needs to improve on our strength and our height,
he said. One of those we can control, so we should focus on
Jan. 5 vs. McDonell Central (L 99-63, conference)
Coming off Christmas break, the Hornets took on the No. 1
ranked McDonell Central Jan. 5. The Hornets fell behind early
in the first half, as junior Drew Sonnentag said the team lacked
toughness and a drive to win.
We needed our best performance and didnt have it last
night, Sonnentag said.
Mittermeyer said he was happy that sophomore Matt
Drilling improved and performed very well. However, he
said McDonell players from Rice Lake and Cornell played
competitive, leading to a 99-63 loss.
Along with losing a Cloverbelt Conference game, Cadott
lost their junior point guard Bryce Boyea after he ruptured ligaments in his ankle during practice. Boyea says he hopes to
recover by basketball playoffs but is unsure of the prognosis.
We had to change a couple things with him being our starting point guard, said Sonnentag. But I think we finally have
it figured out. Still going to miss not having him out there
Jan. 8 vs. Osseo-Fairchild (W 61-54, conference)
The Hornets had only a few days to recover from losing a
game and player as they took on Osseo-Fairchild Jan. 8. The
game was close throughout, with the lead going back and forth

between the two rivals.

Mittermeyer said Osseo-Fairchild was very physical with
Cadott, which is a goal he wants the team to work on.
We didnt handle it as well as Id hoped, but that can only
come with time, said Mittermeyer. We really need to focus
on that as a long-term solution rather than a next game sort
of objective.
Cadott held on with nine three-pointers against the Thunder,
earning a 61-54 Western Cloverbelt Conference victory.
Junior Payton Freagon led the Hornets with six of the threepoint shots in his 20-point total. Also adding double-digit figures were Drilling, with 15 points, and sophomore Bryce
McChesney, with 14 points.
Our passing stood out in this game, Mittermeyer added.
We also created a quick tempo which was in our favor.
Jan. 11 vs. Cornell (W 77-51, non-conference)
The Hornets kept the momentum up for their Jan. 11 game
in Cornell, adding 30 points from 10 three-point shots.
I was really happy how we got to the basket, said Mittermeyer. Thats the difference between last night and how
weve been playing.
Cadott began the game with a 21-point run. The Chiefs tried
to come back in the second half, but the Hornets outside shots
fell, leading them to a 77-51 victory.
McChesney scored 22 points including two three-pointers,
and senior Shawn Sedlacek added 15. Drilling contributed 11
points for the night, while Freagon had the most outside shots
with three three-pointers.
Jumping back to conference competition, the Hornets will
face Fall Creek Jan. 14 and Stanley-Boyd Jan. 19.

Cadott creates wins in non-conference play

In a Dec. 8 matchup
against Cornell, junior Hannah Lee kept
things clean, and
tallied no fouls and
four points for her
teams 53-21 win.

Chieftains fly past

last years hardship
By Kayla Peche
Coming off only three wins last year, the Lake Holcombe
girls basketball team rang in the new year (and season) with a
conference victory that put them ahead of last years schedule.
Jan. 5 vs. Shell Lake (L 51-38, non-conference)
The week started with a Jan. 5 non-conference game against
Shell Lake. Unfortunately, the game wasnt the best, said senior
Kayla Vavra.
I think we just have to communicate a little more, shoot
some more and get the shots to fall, said Vavra. Then we will
be OK.
Junior Hannah Lee said the girls started the night with intensity and a desire to win, and at halftime, the Chieftains were
only behind the Lakers by a point.
We came out strong for just coming off Christmas break,
said Lee, and played a great first half.
In the second half, Lee suffered a calf injury/cramp and
couldnt re-enter the game. On average, Lee is the Chieftains
lead scorer, and scored 14 points alone this game.
With her out, along with seniors Bailey Viegut and Sara Stender, and sophomore Carly Yeager, in foul trouble, Lake Holcombe began to fall behind.
We were unable to connect throughout the end of the second
half, said Lee. We started to lose our momentum and got frustrated which caused us to fall short (51-38) in the end.
Jan. 8 vs. Birchwood (W 36-17, conference)
After a loss, Lake Holcombe charged forward against the
Birchwood Bobcats Jan. 8. Stender says usually when playing
in Birchwood, the Chieftains lose focus.
This year we played at our level and played our game, she
Lee came in and led Lake Holcombe with 14 points, despite
a slight injury in the previous game. With herself and Stender
earning double-digit figures, the Chieftains defeated the Bobcats, 36-17.
This win put Lake Holcombe in the right direction, overcoming last years three-win record. Stender said having pretty
much the same team as last year has been helping them this
We all know the plays, Stender said. So all we had to do
was improve our confidence and thats exactly what we did.
We are hitting shots, taking chances and playing the game we
know we can play.
Lake Holcombe will continue against East Lakeland Conference competitors Jan. 12 when they face New Auburn at home.

By Kayla Peche
The Cadott girls basketball team may have a poor conference record, but their success at non-conference competition
keeps moving upward as they nabbed another victory this
Jan. 7 vs. Stanley-Boyd (L 63-40, conference)
Despite another loss for the Hornets record, the players say
they are staying positive and learning from each match.
The game went good last night, said Autumn Dembowski, Hornet junior. I think to improve we need to work
better as a team and communicate with each other. We are
working at practice on that.
The Stanley-Boyd Orioles led the game by 10 points at
halftime, with high scoring from two of their players, Jenna
Hoffstatter and Jamie Reit, putting pressure on Cadott offensively.
Seniors Chelsey Goettl and Elizabeth Kyes led the Hornets
with 16 and nine points, respectively. However, the second
half went similar to the first as far as scoring, leading to a
63-40 Cadott loss in the Western Cloverbelt Conference.
Jan. 11 vs. Cornell (W 54-38, non-conference)
Cadott traveled just up the highway to take on non-conference rival Cornell Jan. 11. The girls used their defensive effort, causing the Chiefs to turnover the ball and leading to
points in the Hornets direction.
The girls jumped to an early 10-point lead with 11 consecutive points, eight from Kyes who made 17 points for the
night. Goettl had another high-scoring game with 20, while
sophomore Cailin Rineck added six.
Hazuga said he is proud of Kyes and Goettl for leading the
team but wants the other players to create plays as well.
I want them (Kyes and Goettl) to do their thing thats
what they do and its fun to watch, he said. But as other
players begin to develop more within the system, thats the
only way were going to start winning.
In the second half, the Hornets pulled away with a 14-2
run, bringing the final score to 54-38 for a non-conference

The win felt pretty great for the team, said Goettl. It
feels good to know that we can all come together and play
like we should. We still have a few things to work on but we
are progressing.
Cadott returned to play the following day against McDonell Jan. 12, and will travel to Osseo-Fairchild Jan. 15.

Cornell learns to rebound from losses

By Kayla Peche
The Cornell girls basketball team is showing their head
coach Marcus Leland what they can do defensively, but he
says after this week he wants to build confidence on offense,
so the shots begin to fall.
We just need to find a way to put some points on the scoreboard, said Leland.
Jan. 7 vs. Bruce (L 40-18, conference)
Back on the court Jan. 7 after winter break, the Cornell girls
basketball team struggled against East Lakeland Conference
competitor Bruce.
The score was 17-9 at halftime, and Leland said the Chiefs
struggled to put the ball into the hoop.
We did a much better job of being strong with the basketball and not hurting ourselves with turnovers, he said.
For individual scores, senior Lexi Moussette and sophomore
Danielle Fasbender contributed the same, bringing in six points
and four rebounds. Junior Abby Klein added three for Cornell
while sophomore Cheyan Shackleton added a basket.
As a team I think we did well, said Shackleton. I just
think we need to work on being more confident in shooting
the ball more and boxing out. Otherwise, I think we are improving a lot.
Although the team only scored another nine points in the
second half, Leland says he was happy with their defensive effort. Even with Cornells pressure, the Red Raiders responded
with baskets of their own, leading to a 40-18 loss for the
Jan. 9 vs. Greenwood (L 72-32, non-conference)
At a weekend contest in Greenwood Jan. 9, the Chiefs stumbled again offensively, said Leland. He says the girls were not
prepared to take on a team from the East Cloverbelt Conference.
They (Greenwood) did a good job of breaking down our
defense, he said.
Without their defense, Cornell fell behind quickly and Fasbenders 17 points, four rebounds and two steals, and Moussettes 13 points, three rebounds and four steals werent enough

to win.
Despite the duo in double-digits, the Chiefs couldnt catch
Greenwood, trailing at the buzzer 72-32.
Jan. 11 vs. Cadott (L 54-38, non-conference)
On Monday, Jan. 11, the Cornell girls were right back on
the court, hosting another Cloverbelt team from the west side,
The Chiefs fell behind quickly as the Hornets nailed 11
points in a row, jumping to a 10-point lead. From there, Cornell
battled back with Fasbender contributing six of her 21 points
in the first half.

Its a Girls Hunting Life

By: Monique Westaby

The Second Week

I didnt hit the woods again
until the final weekend of
deer season. With work and a baby there just wasnt time
to sit and wait for squirrels and birds.
In our group, the second weekend is filled with drives.
We have several areas we walk and one day, usually Saturday, is dedicated to drives around home.
Each year I offer my short-legged slow-moving self to
walking all of the knee-deep grass swamps and thickbrushed areas. And each year I get put on stand duty.
I barely wrote that with a straight face
In reality, as my husband, Scott, dresses lightly for walking through the worst of the worst, I put on just as many
clothes as I did to sit in subzero temperatures. I am a selfproclaimed designated stander. Actually, nobody wants to
listen to me complain.
Im too hot. The brush is too thick. The pricker bushes
hurt me. The swamp is too wet. The beaver dam is too narrow. The lake is too deep. The sun is too bright. The sky is
too blue.
Now, when the boys (Im the only girl in our crew) return with their jackets over their shoulder and sweat on
their brow, I say, My toes are cold, just to get a reaction.
We did all the normal drives and I actually got away
with standing the entire day. (Usually I give in and do at
least one drive.) Since we really didnt need the meat, I
passed up several does. By the end of Saturday, as I stood
on the second-to-last drive, I was getting bored.
I pulled out my phone and was about to take a picture
when Boom! Boom! Boomboomboom! When I finally got
back into the skin I had jumped out of, I looked toward my
cousins direction and a herd of deer made their way along
the bottom of the ridge.
They were far enough away that it would be a poke and
hope shot for me, and the scope resulted in zero antlers.
Along with that, after two-three more booms, I wasnt sure
how many deer my cousin had lying on the ground.
Then the deer stopped. All of them. They just stood there
for about 10 minutes.
Are you kidding me?!
I watched the does and fawns bob their heads until I
couldnt take it anymore.
I rested my 7mm 08 on the edge of the stand and pulled
up on one of the nice does. Its head was perfectly positioned between two trees. I was going to take home either
a deer or a

Ice and snow conditions continue to vary widely across

the state. Smaller northern lakes have been frozen over
longer than some of the larger lakes. Many lakes in the
south remain open or have just minimal ice cover.
The entire state is snow covered, but snow depths range
from just 2 to 3 inches in the south, to 8 to 10 inches in
areas of the far north.
Snowmobile trails are open or partially open in the northern tier of counties and in some central counties, with conditions generally poor to fair.
Cross-country ski trails are open across much of the state,
including most state parks and forests. However, conditions
vary, with many properties in the south not able to set track.
On lakes with ice in the north, walleye action has been
sporadic. Northern pike have provided some action for the
walleye anglers during slow periods. Panfish anglers arent
out in any numbers yet.
Biologists have counted high numbers of Canada geese,
large rafts of mallards and diving duck species including
goldeneyes, buffleheads, mergansers and scaup on larger

open waters.
Even though many winter enthusiasts would like to see
more snow, wildlife biologists say the mild winter has
helped the deer population.
Deer were still eating
greens into December.

First Ice? Fishing Trip!

Joey Dushek, Preston Johnson and Paul Bucher

enjoying a January evening on Lake Chetac.
Hello friends,
Generally in Wisconsin, ice fishermen hit our frozen
lakes between mid-November and early December. For
most Wisconsin hard-water enthusiasts first ice was not
until after Christmas.
My first ice fishing getaway was just completed and by
all accounts it was extremely successful. Please read further
for details on how to have a really good time in Wisconsin
when there is ice.
Friday, Jan. 1 High 27, Low 16
Chetac Lake in Sawyer County covers 1,920 acres and
has an abundant supply of 8-10 inch crappie, as well as
northern pike, walleye, perch and bluegill.
Paul Bucher is my good buddy from Cumberland and we
try to have one or two fun outings a year together. Preston
Johnson lives in Rice Lake, is a lot of fun and a hardcore
fisherman. Chris Schiefelbein lives on Lake Chetac and is
very into catching fish and socializing with his pals. Chris
was our informant and found the fish for us the first day
there was somewhat safe ice on Chetac.
Joey Dushek, my 22-year-old stepson, is the young guy
in the group and like the other guys is very good at catching
crappie with electronics in 26 feet of water.
My official position is that of Head Fun Master. I come
up with a date each year that everyone works around for
this trip, and I kind of suck at catching crappie in deep
We stayed at a really nice home on the water, whose very
kind owners are snowbirds (Thank you). We use fourwheelers to travel. There is 4-5 inches of ice so we are fishing in my Eskimo Fatfish, which is about 13 feet by 8
feet, and literally a cabin on the ice.
For this trip we are breaking in a brand new Fatfish that
is insulated. Everyone is impressed.

After a three-hour drive, and settling in, we hit the ice

about 1 p.m. with a plan of fishing until somewhere around
Today it is Paul, Joey, Chris and me in the shack with
plenty of friends in nearby shacks. The crappie action is
steady but it is not a slaughter. Most of the action is about
6 feet off the bottom in 26 feet of water.
We also have tip ups out that are set for gators, but as the
day became night we switched over for walleye. Over the
course of the weekend we caught five snakes and no
Our comfortable abode is lit with propane lights that run
off 20-pound cylinders and later in the night, Paul heated
up scalloped potatoes and ham.
At dark we had about 35 crappies between the four of us
that were all in the 9 inch range. Mr. Schiefelbein likes to
call them lobsters of the lake.
When we pulled tip ups and headed to camp we had about
70 extremely tasty crappies between the four of us.
If you were outside our shack and listening, you would
pretty much hear non-stop laughter.
Saturday, Jan. 2 High 32, Low 19
Today Preston joined our ranks. I probably should have
charged the battery on my Vexilar (it showed the pretty colors but not my jig), but we caught a lot of fish and we
laughed a lot.
At one time I had a flag and missed a small fish right at
the hole. Chris Bein watched the experience and, as usual,
verbally abused me. Lo and behold I had a line hooked onto
my tip up and though I had to pull really hard, I broke it off
from the tree that it must have been snagged on.
Chris started pulling in the other end and there was about
a 24-inch snake on it; and all the line from someones tip
up. No flags went up so we figured it was a fish that had
been hooked a day or two earlier.
When we showed the guys the set up, Joey claimed it was
his rig and I may have put the entire spool into a large mess.
Joeys flag never went up and there was some debate as
to why that may have happened.
After dark I burned a precooked hot dish that had kind of
frozen; even my dog would not eat it.
This trip is so much fun that we must return next year!

Cadott Library Board

Library fines half-off for one day

By Kayla Peche
All fines must go, said Paula Stanton, Cadott Public
Library director during a Jan. 11 regular board meeting.
Stanton suggested the library host a day where members
can pay 50 percent of their library fines, and erase the rest
of their fines completely.
So they just come in and pay half their fines, she said.
Then we are getting something, which is better than nothing, and they (library members) get to use their account
again. So its a win-win.
After researching, Stanton says when other libraries held
a half-off fines day, they took in three times their weekly
fine amount.

It was really successful for them, Stanton said about a

library in New Richmond. Idont know how it would be
for us but we can try it.
The board of trustees approved a Fines Sale for Jan.
During the directors report, from January through
March, the library will hold a pet photo contest for all ages.
Stanton says people can bring in a picture of their pet, along
with a few sentences about why they have the best pet in
the world. People can also post their favorite pets on the
librarys Facebook page.
We will post the pictures in the library on the bulletin
board and award prizes to the winners and their owners,
Stanton said.
Along with the pet theme,
the librarys next family
night is Feb. 19, from 4:305:30 p.m. with a PJ party
and stuffed animals theme.
Kids can come in their pajamas, read bedtime stories to
their animals, make crafts
for their animals and eat
milk and cookies.
This is on a day that
Cadott doesnt have school
so hopefully we will have
better attendance with the
kids, Stanton said.

Marv Kraus Productions held their annual gun

show at the Cornell High School Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 9-10. Organizers say attendance was similar to the last few years, with about 1,500 people in
attendance for both days. Along with the typical
pistols and rifles, this 20 mm Vulcan M103 ANZIO
was also on site. The large artillary piece takes a
1,600 grain bullet and shoots 4,236 feet per second,
with a max range of 11.5 miles. With the silencer,
the gun weighs 150 pounds and ammunition costs
$13 per round.

Gun Show

For those less interested in guns, Jeneane Root, Holcombe, was on hand, making and selling her handmade jewelry and wine charms. Root says she gets
most of her beads online, and after seeing so much camo at another gun show
she attended, decided to make some that looked like the traditional hunter
wear; but those sold right away. Roots jewelry uses gems like jasper,
turquoise, quartz and onyx, to name a few.
