Greenwood sets Feb. 3 and Feb. 23 referendum meetings

The Greenwood School District Board of Education
will hold three public information meetings in the next
several weeks to inform residents of the details of an
April 5 referendum to exceed the state revenue cap over
the next five years. The Board will be asking voters in
April to allow it to collect $850,000 in additional taxes
for the 2016-17 fiscal year and $750,000 per year over the
following four years, and the informational meetings will
be part of its process of educating the public of the need
for the additional money.
One meeting will be held on Feb. 3, at 6:30 p.m., in the
high school cafetorium. The second session is set for Feb.
23, at 6:30 p.m., at the Willard Community Center (Athletic
Club). Board members and school administrators will
be present at both meetings to discuss the referendum

amount, why the Board has proposed it, and how local
taxes will be affected.
A third meeting will be held but has not been scheduled yet.
District Administrator Todd Felhofer is preparing an
informational packet that will be mailed to all district
residents soon. They will have it in time to review the
material so they can ask any questions regarding it at
one of the public meetings.
A district referendum to exceed the state-imposed
revenue limits that was approved by voters in 2010 will
be expiring at the end of this fiscal year. It allowed the
district to collect $500,000 more in local taxes each year
for six years. That referendum length of six years was
timed to coincide with the end of the districts loan pay-

April, the district will make the final $498,000 payment
to completely retire that debt.
Even with the end of the loan repayment, financial
projections show the district will not be able to balance its
annual budget beginning next year, if current expenses
and revenues remain as they are, without a revenue cap
According to projections from Baird Inc., a financial
consultant working with the district, the district will
see a projected budget shortfall of $637,000 already in
the 2016-17 year, if no changes are made, and that figure
would balloon to more than $1 million by 2020-21.
If approved, property owners would actually see a
decline in school taxes. According to Baird projections,
property taxes in the first year of the referendum would
drop approximately $180 on a $100,000 home, because the
district will no longer be making the annual debt payment on the high school addition. The districts property
tax rate this year is $13.07 per $1,000 of property value,
but would fall to $11.27 in 2016-17, and then bounce back
to $11.36 the following year and $11.33 in 2018-19. Those
projections are based on current conditions, and would
be subject to change based on state legislative action, etc.

Senate passes bill to toughen OWI laws

A bill to toughen Wisconsins drunk
driving laws is getting unanimous approval.
On Jan. 20, the State Senate unanimously approved a bill to toughen state
laws against repeat drunk drivers. The
bill is authored by State Senator Alberta
Darling (R, River Hills) and State Representative Jim Ott (R, Mequon). Ott says
too often there are examples about why
tougher drunk driving laws are needed.
I was reminded today of how necessary this bill is after a Milwaukee police
officer was hospitalized by a drunk driver,
who is currently on parole for 4th offense
OWI, Ott said, I thank Senator Darling
for her leadership and tireless tenacity
against drunk driving, and thank Leader
Fitzgerald for bringing SB 455 to the floor.
I look forward to voting on this bill in the
State Assembly.

Student debt problems continue to worsen

The late H. Edwin Young, the University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor
who led the campus during the turbulent
Vietnam War years, would quip there are
unexpected dangers lurking in going
to college.
Its more than just your childs tuition
payment. Your son or daughter might just
fall in love and get married to another
student who also has a large tuition loan,
explained Young, who later served as
president of the University of Wisconsin
It was Youngs way of trying to focus
attention on the students financial plight
as tuition and collegiate living costs rose
The problem continues to grow.
A national report showed that those
who got a college degree in 2014 have an
average student loan indebtedness of
nearly $29,000. Nationally, student loan indebtedness is now put at $1.3 trillion. Unlike some other kinds of debt, bankruptcy
wont eliminate repaying the money.
The graduates debt load has become a
major issue in Wisconsins state government. Republicans and Democrats are
proposing different kinds of answers to
the issue.
Republicans, led by Gov. Scott Walker,
want to modify Wisconsins personal income tax laws to allow a total deduction
for annual interest payments made on the
outstanding student debt.
Fiscal experts put the cost to the state
treasury at $5.2 million annually. Walker
said those with annual incomes between
$30,000 and $70,000 would be the major
Among other items in the Republican
approach is a $500,000 package for tech-

nical school grants, efforts to promote

internships, and requiring colleges during the first semester of enrollment to
provide full financial information about
the overall costs to families.
Walker is asking for a program of
emergency grants to help students
complete their degree. It would provide
$130,000 for the UW System and $300,000
for technical schools.
The focus on technical colleges reflects
Republican efforts to help train a Wisconsin work force. The
governor has said there
are thousands of unfilled
jobs in the state because
of the lack of trained,
qualified personnel for
technical jobs.
Democrats are focusing on allowing the student borrowers to refinance their loans at
lower interest rates. That
would impact the lenders
Pommer but not the state treasury.
State Sen. Dave Hansen, D-Green Bay, notes that three states
including Minnesota are opting for the
refinance approach to the issue. Hansen
says 60 percent of those with outstanding
student loans in Wisconsin are over the
age of 30.
Minnesota officials suggest that a person with a $40,000 loan at 8 percent might
save between $200 and $300 in monthly
payments with refinancing.
Hansen suggests the savings in refinancing might push Wisconsin residents
to move to Minnesota and worsen a brain
Some solutions to the loan crisis are

can reduce the overall costs of a higher
education if they take the first two years
of school at one of the UW Colleges twoyear campuses while living at home.
They could then transfer to a four-year
institution if they were to seek a bachelors degree.

Getting it to run and getting accustomed to my old files was yet another
matter. Thats when it pays to know the
right people. Also, spending the winter
down here are Charlie Forss and his wife,
Sandy, from Little Falls, Minn. Charlie is
Florences nephew and Jackies cousin.
I explained to the man in the Lap Top
Shop and to Charlie, that I have used computers for 30 years. I learned how to turn
them on, find the document or program I
needed to write my stories and/or column,
and then turn it off. It got me this far, but
dont ask me how they work or try to fix
something that isnt right.
So far, Charlie has spent a couple of
hours trying to make everything match
and he assured me I could write my column. You know he was right if you are
reading this.
Fortunately for us, the football season
is over and we dont have to promise to be
a good Viking fan from now on. It seems
Charlie has also taken up fishing down
here and managed somehow to put a picture on our Facebook pages of himself
and a 35-pound drum he had just caught
one afternoon this week.

The other unfortunate incident last

week involved Florence. As many of you
know, she has been suffering a loss of
memory ever since she was hospitalized
in 2013. While that loss has continued to
deteriorate over the last couple of years
she has also had problems walking, especially outside.
We have managed, but last Saturday
when we had driven over to Jackie and
Rupes place to watch the Packer game,
things went from bad to worse. Thanks to
a friendly gentleman who just happened
to be there, I was able to get her out of the
elevator and to a bench. From there I got
Rupe, Jackie, Charlie and Sandy to help
get her to their apartment.
On Sunday, Jackie and Sandy went
wheelchair shopping and found a small
collapsible wheelchair that seems to be
doing the trick. She manages to get around
the apartment since there is always something to reach out and touch.

If that wasnt enough, we received an

e-mail from Florences brother and sisterin-law who live in Denver. They informed
us of the death of Florences sister-in-law
who lived in Davenport, Iowa. I have written about several trips down to see her a
time or two.
But, other than our handicaps, we are
both in good health and are truly enjoying
life on the Gulf of Mexico. We awoke this
morning to a very low tide, which made
the beach appear different than we are
accustomed to. Life is still good in spite
of our problems.


It was a nice week weatherwise in Port

Aransas. Temperatures were always in the
high 60s or even 70s. Then a chill hit on
Friday (today). It did hit 60, but the wind
from the northwest was sort of a reminder
of what is supposed to arrive tonight. They
are saying maybe 36 for a low. Then next
week another chill is coming with even
talk of a frost.
We had driven over to Aransas Pass
this afternoon and noticed that Walmart
was starting to stock their garden center. I
guess its OK as in the store valentine displays are reminding us that the special day
isnt that far away. Its hard to believe we
are down to counting days left in January.

This week will go down in history as

not one of the most pleasant for us. I was
explaining to someone that I still write
a column for our local newspaper. He
wanted to know what I write about. I said,
just about anything that comes to mind,
and this week it will probably be about my
search for another computer to replace the
one that got destroyed.
The worst part is that it was destroyed
by my own hands. I cant even call it an
accident. Call it a mishap, which is defined
as an unfortunate accident. You see, accidents in our family are another matter.
We always explained to our daughter, Sue,
when she was small, if something happened and it was an accident, she wouldnt
get scolded. Well, do you how many times
we heard her say, It was an accident, it
was an accident. She just wanted to make
sure she was covered.
The unfortunate accident was my own
doing. I should have known better. I was
drinking a cup of coffee and accidentally
tipped it over, some spilling onto the computer keyboard. We wiped up what we
could and left the machine turned on hoping it would dry out and all would be well.
Not the case. The next morning I tried
sending a few e-mails to let people know
what had happened and had problems
coming up with words that didnt have a
lot of letters that are found in the row of
keys that didnt work.
Thanks to a good memory, I remember
a small Lap Top Computer Shop in Corpus
Christi, where Jan Schmidt had taken us
one time. It was back in the days of my
first computer, which came in the size of
a small television. It also required a separate power tower. It was a bulky mess to
try and haul all the way from Wisconsin
to Texas and back.
So I had my first introduction to a laptop computer. Then, thanks to a friendly
thunderstorm the following summer, my
first computer became history and I ended
up with two laptops. Several years ago,
wed given one to one of Florences nieces
and she continued to use it for several
more years.

States public school open enrollment

period runs from Feb.1- April 29
Wisconsins public school open enrollment application period, which allows
parents an opportunity to send their
children to any public school district in
the state, runs from Feb. 1 to April 29 for
the 2016-17 school year.
Traditionally, children in Wisconsin
are assigned to public school districts
based on the location of their parents
home. Open enrollment is a tuition-free
opportunity for parents to apply for
their children to attend a public school
in a school district other than the one in
which they live.
The states open enrollment program
is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and began
in the 1998-99 school year with 2,464
students transferring from their home
district to a nonresident district. The
Loyal Chamber welcomes new business owners

their open enrollment applications have

been approved or denied. Although an
alternate application procedure allows
parents to apply for open enrollment
outside of the three-month application
period, there are more restrictions associated with the alternate procedure.
Transportation to and from a nonresident school, in most circumstances, is the
responsibility of the parent. However,
some school districts may provide partial
transportation. Parents with questions
should call the nonresident school district office to find out if any transportation will be provided. Reimbursement
of a portion of transportation costs is
available for families whose children
are eligible for free or reduced-price
school meals based on federal income
This is the first year provisions are
in place to improve access to open enrollment for students with disabilities.
Those changes include a new transfer
amount of $12,000 for students with
disabilities. The regular education
student transfer amount is calculated
on a formula based on the prior years
amount. For the 2015-16 school year, the
transfer amount was $6,639 per student.
Along with the higher transfer payment
for special education students, resident
districts will no longer be able to deny a
students open enrollment application
for cost reasons.
To assist parents in submitting open
enrollment applications, a directory of
public school districts is available on the
DPI website at http://dpi.wi.gov/directories. To find additional information on
open enrollment, visit http://dpi.wi.gov/
open-enrollment. More information also
is available from local school districts or
from an open enrollment consultant at

Jackie was born on March 9, 1958, in Marshfield, to
Jean and Spencer Graves. She graduated from Spencer
High School in 1976. Jackie had a wonderful and subtle
sense of humor, and was empathetic and caring; so caring,
at times she would sacrifice her own comfort for someone
less fortunate. She loved music and spent many hours
listening to her radio. Her culinary specialty was fudge
and she was ever ready to whip you up a batch.
Jackie is survived by her siblings, April Weaver, Spencer, Spence (Mary) Graves,
Spencer, Greg (Val) Graves, Crystal, Minn., Jeff (Julie) Graves, Hewitt, and Sarah
(Patrick) Kraus, Pittsville; and her nieces and nephews, Michelle Apsey, Elliot

and Timothy Kraus. Jackie was also a great-aunt to 12 energetic and loving children.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and her grandparents, Bernice and

Jackie was at peace with God and prepared to enter Heaven. The Graves family
would like to thank the wonderful staff at the House of the Dove they are truly
special individuals.

Red Cross cites emergency need for blood donations

The American Red Cross has an emergency need for blood and platelet donors.
Severe winter weather since Jan. 1 has
forced the cancellation of more than 300
blood drives across 20 states, resulting in

supply. Blood donation appointments can
be quickly and easily scheduled by using
the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting

redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED

CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Blood products are being delivered to
hospitals as quickly as donations are coming in, said Todd Kulman of the BadgerHawkeye Blood Services Region. Eligible
donors are urged to make an appointment
to give blood or platelets now and help
ensure blood products are available for
patients locally, and across the country,

Because of generous donors, the Red
Cross is able to provide blood products
to patients like 2-year-old Charlie Stephens. Charlie has received both blood
and platelets during treatment for acute
lymphoblastic leukemia. Her mother, Michelle Stephens, donates blood regularly.
I want to help supply blood for someone
else, because others have provided for my
family, she said.
The Red Cross must collect approximately 14,000 blood and platelet donations
every day for the patients at about 2,600
hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide. Blood and platelets are needed to
respond to patient emergencies, including
accident and burn victims, heart surgery
and organ transplant patients, and those
receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer

or sickle cell disease.

How to donate blood
A blood donor card or drivers license
or two other forms of identification are
required at check-in. Individuals who are
17 years of age (16 with parental consent
in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds
and are in generally good health may be
eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and
younger also have to meet certain height
and weight requirements.
Blood donors can now save time at
their next donation by using RapidPass
to complete their pre-donation reading
and health history questionnaire online,
on the day of their donation, from a home
or work computer prior to arriving at the
blood drive. To get started and learn more,
visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and
follow the instructions on the site.

My life is based on a true story, well, most of it

by a belligerent bear, left for dead on a mountainside by a band of trappers, flies off a cliff on the
back of a stolen horse, is swept down an icy river
as he is chased by irate Indians, and is forced to
eat an assortment of roots, raw fish and uncooked
buffalo guts, and all this, believe it or not, without
wearing a gram of Thinsulate. If you thought
DiCaprio looked a little chilly while drowning in
the North Atlantic after the Titanic tipped over,
you should have seen him when he stripped
naked just before crawling inside the body cavity
of a freshly dead and disemboweled horse for an
evening snooze. I mean, that took guts.
As the Revenant tale goes, Glass and his son
are guiding a band of beaver trappers through the
Wyoming wilderness when an angry gang of Arikara Indians attacks their camp and drives them
helter-skelter into the wilderness. As Glass is leading the group back to civilization, he is attacked
by a grizzly bear about the size of a Toyota Camry
and is bitten and beaten, mauled and maimed,
but manages to live. His trapping comrades try to
carry him to safety, but he is too much of a load to
lug through the peaks. Two men -- Fitzgerald and
Bridger -- are left behind to tend to Glass until he
dies. Instead, Fitzgerald grows impatient, knifes
the son, throws Glass' still-live body in a shallow
hole, and hikes away. Of course, moviegoers by
this time are not even finished with their Milk
Duds, so Glass miraculously pulls himself out
of his erstwhile grave and drags himself for the
next 20 minutes seemingly across the whole of
the Northwest Territories.
Upon reaching a river, where Glass fashions a
crutch to aid his broken leg, the Arikara spot him
and force him to jump into the torrent, which, by
Movie-Making Rule 206 (b), has a waterfall. Glass
obligingly plunges over it and then floats for some

Walleye on Metonga
Hello friends,
This weeks field/lake work took place on Forest Countys
Lake Metonga. Lake Metonga covers just under 2,200 acres, has
a maximum depth of 79 feet, and is highly respected for quality in the size and numbers department of its perch, walleye,
northern pike and smallmouth bass.
Friday, Jan. 15 -- high 26, low minus 12
Until today, I had never seen Metonga, which on its north
end borders Crandon. I am a lucky guy and had my good buddy,
Edward Smith, who owns Northwoods Insurance Agency, which
is located right in Crandon, as a major helper on where to put
my Eskimo ice shack.
At this point people still were not driving trucks on Metonga,
so I would be hauling all of my gear behind my four-wheeler in
a nine-foot enclosed trailer.
There was a sense of urgency for me as I only had about two
hours of daylight left and one heck of a cold spell was just hours
away from hitting my home on Metonga.
Our camp would be by itself, in other words, no neighbors
and the first thing I did was pull out my Jiffy Pro 4, drill three
holes, and put out three tip ups for walleye.
Then I went to work building a camp, which is a pretty good
size job. I said our camp because my old buddy, Jeff Moll,
would show up soon after the work was done for a weekend on
the ice as well.
So it is dark, I have not had a flag, and Ed, who is in his shack
about 400 yards away, is texting that he is catching some walleye.
Then magic happened and I noticed I had a flag on my tip up
that was only 20 feet from my cabin on the lake, even better yet,
the line was being steadily pulled out at a slow but steady pace.
When I set the hook a good fight took place and soon after I
iced an extremely FAT 21 1/2-inch walleye, I was so happy I felt
like doing a cartwheel.

by TRG Editor Dean Lesar
time to relative safety, expect that by this time --if
a true story were at all in play -- would have had a
body temperature of ice cream. Luckily, though,
Glass has a flintstone -- which has somehow not
fallen out of his pocket during neither the vicious
bear mauling nor the somersault over the waterfall
-- and he strikes a fire as if had a stack of dry pine
kindling and a Bic.
Not yet fully healed, with a gaping wound to
his throat, Glass now stuffs a plug of gunpowder
-- which again has stayed with him through
every imaginable physical travail -- in the cavity,
takes a handful of burning tinder from his fire,
and sets the gunpowder ablaze so as to cauterize
his oozing hole. Not since Dr. Quinn, Medicine
Woman sewed a frontiersman's arm back on with
a chicken bone and moose sinew have I seen such
a dramatic medical procedure captured on film.
Moving ahead -- to about the time I began to
wish that I had not drank so much of my large
soda so quickly -- Glass is stumbling through the
bush when he chances across a lone Pawnee Indian who gives him a horse ride. The lone warrior
shares some fresh bison entrails with Glass -- you
just gotta' admire that -- and provides him with
Native American medical care, though I doubt

it was covered by Glass' group Aetna

policy (you know how fussy they are
about alternative treatments). Anyway,
Glass makes it back to the fur trappers'
fort, where he tells the captain how
Fitzgerald left him for the crows, and
then -- in his best Dirty Harry voice -says he's going along to find Fitzgerald,
who has snuck like a scared weasel into
the wilderness.
Soon, the captain and Glass find
Fitzgerald, but the rotten scoundrel
kills the captain to set up the inevitable,
climactic confrontation of the hero
versus the villain. They meet along a river, Glass
armed with a hatchet, Fitzgerald with a knife.
For several minutes, they hack and saw at each
other, splattering enough of their blood in the
Wyoming snow to spray paint the fort walls.
Finally, Fitzgerald is spent and Glass slides his
nearly-dead body into the water, and he floats
to a waiting band of Arikara, who scalp him.
Oh, yeah, sorry, I probably should have said
something about a spoiler alert a few graphs
ago. At least I didn't tell you about the ending
where Glass sees a vision of his dead wife and
we hear nothing but heavy breaths as the credits
began to roll.
So, there you have it, another inspired-by-atrue-story blockbuster. Just you wait, someday,
somebody is going to sell Hollywood a similar
script about my life and cast Tom Hanks in the
role of me in the time I outwitted a rogue cop
(Denzel Washington) and teamed up with a dying Mafia boss (Johnny Depp) to rescue a helpless
dame (sure, let's go with Nicole Kidman again
as long as I've already ruined her career) from a
serial killer (Robert Downey Jr.).
I'll get the popcorn.

Minutes after every bit of work was completed I got the call
from my buddy Moll that he needed his taxi to come and get him.
Jeff and I visited with Ed in his shack and then went to camp
and put out Jeffs three tip ups. What happened between 7 p.m.
and 3:30 a.m. was a classic for Jeff and I. We caught four more
walleye with the smallest being 20 1/2 inches and at 1 a.m I
caught a very obese 28-inch northern pike.
Mr. Moll was highly energetic tonight and we laughed a lot.
Saturday, Jan. 16 -- high 3, low minus 14 lots a wind
Jeff and I gave catching eyes and gators our full attention
during daylight hours and the weather was brutal (spit froze
when it hit the ice). We did not come close to catching a fish,
that is, until the sun said bye bye!
This night was a true classic, we listened to the Packers
and the Cardinals from inside of the shack and every time we
thought we could warm up, another light on a tip up told us
that we were wrong.
We iced five walleye with the smallest being 19 1/2 inches
and the largest being 23 1/2.
The next day the high was minus two. My four-wheeler would
not start so we hiked a mile to our trucks. Jeffs Suburban
would not start and had to be left in Crandon and we were the
first yahoos to drive a truck on Metonga this winter. Since
we had our lets sink a truck hats on we hooked my trailer
to the truck, loaded the ATV and 5,000 pounds of gear into it,
and drove off Metonga with a, we just had a great weekend in
subzero conditions smile on both of our faces.
I promise you this. Unless I die soon, I will be back to Metonga!

WE CARRY the #1 selling

mattress in America

When Hollywood finally wises up and makes

a "based-on-a-true-story" movie about me, it
will star Liam Neeson as yours truly and tell
the tale of the time I rescued a beautiful lady -played by Nicole Kidman, I'm thinking -- who
was kidnapped by a ruthless drug lord (Danny
DeVito) who's secretly in cahoots with the
President of the United States (George Clooney
or Cate Blanchett -- we'll cast that part after we
see how the election turns out). Well, yeah, of
course, it'll be pure fiction, except the part about
me dreaming about carrying a barely-clothed
Nicole Kidman out of the drug lord's torture
chamber, but that's close enough for the movies.
You know the script, one part fact, a thousand
parts falsehood, and you've got yourself a box
office smash. Sell enough popcorn, and it might
even get an Oscar nod, as long, of course, as all
the actors and actresses have less skin pigmentation than an albino seagull.
Over the weekend, I went to see "The Revenant," a movie supposedly based "loosely" on
a true story about an 1820s wilderness guide
who somehow survives every horror known to
mankind except junior high facial pimples to
get revenge on the outlaw who killed his son.
Put it this way, JJ Watt's football jersey would
fit less "loosely" over Kelly Ripa's scrawny
shoulders than any semblance of reality did on
this script. From the opening scene, in which
star Leonardo DiCaprio is stalking elk, to the
end, when he's about to finally die alone in the
frozen mountains after losing enough blood to
stock a major hospital transfusion department
for a month, about the only thing that seems
real is that it's cold in Wyoming in winter. But
we already knew that.
DiCaprio plays the role of Hugh Glass, who
proves to be quite unbreakable as he is battered

Schaefer family hosts 33rd annual progressive dinner

The 33rd annual Schaefer Family Progressive Dinner
was recently attended by 55 members of the extended family of the late Werner and Christine Schaefer. This years
extravaganza included a menu of seven stops, beginning
in Owen and ending in Wausau. The dinner has become a
tradition that originated as a time saving device, allowing
families to visit each others homes during the holidays,
see what gifts had been exchanged and to visit, while still
having time to enjoy their individual familys Christmas
parties. The event is always held after Christmas and before the new year gets too old. Each family is assigned a
category and asked not to augment the menu with auxiliary
dishes. The challenge to each guest is to pace themselves
with small samples, knowing the fare at each stop is more
tempting than the last, and the day is long.
Jo and Mike Lullof were the first hosts of this years
event, kicking off the day with ham and egg sandwiches,
cheese, banana bread, pretzels and punch. With individual
intentions to lightly sample already sorely tested, the
