STO P IN
NATURALLY SPEAKING
By Jerry Davis
Now is the time to think
about spring flowers. No, not buying seeds and plantlets, but spring
flowers that begin bursting forth
from woody branches when the
weather warms in a month.
One of Wisconsin’s early flowering plants is willow, whose fuzzy
catkins (clusters of tiny flowers) appear on the upper branches
of pussy willow shrubs.
The catkins are groups of either pollen or seed flowers.
The two types occur on different pussy willow shrubs.
But since the flowers do not have large, showy petals, the
catkins look pretty much the same. At least they do when they
first develop.
Forcing willow’s flower buds to open a month or two ahead
is relatively easy to do by removing a few flower bud branches.
Once indoors, place the foot-long branches in a container of
water near a heat and light source and let them open in their
new, warm environment.
If the flowers open in time, they could be a Valentine’s
Day gift.
Once open, the water can be removed and the catkins
will dry and last for a month or more.

Cook Time: 7 Hours
Ready In: 7 Hours 15 Minutes
Servings: 8
“A hearty combination of beans, corn, tomatoes, and taco seasonings, slow cooked with shredded chicken. Top each bowl with Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips. Made mostly of
canned ingredients, this tasty soup lets the slow cooker do the work
so you don’t have to!”
INGREDIENTS:
1 onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can black beans
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
2 (10 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts
shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
sour cream (optional)
crushed tortilla chips (optional)
DIRECTIONS:
1.
Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato

2.
Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool
long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into
the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with
shredded Cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed
tortilla chips, if desired.

Lynx Take on the Warbirds
By: Carolyn Karls
Edited by: Samantha Schult
On Saturday January 17th the Middleton Metro
Lynx had a home game against the evenly matched Fond
du Lac Warbirds. The Lynx came out strong in the first
period and where taking a lot of shots on the Warbird’s
goalie and where trying to put home a lot of rebounds that
the goalie put out. The rebounds finally went in for the
Lynx when Samantha Dingle a junior from Verona put her
own rebound in the back of the net. The Lynx went up 1-0
at the end of the first period. The Lynx came out strong
again in the third period playing a majority of the period
in the offensive zone. However neither team was able to
put the puck in the back of the net in the second period and
the score was still 1-0 Lynx. The third period came around
and the Lynx knew they had to keep the momentum up in
the third period and that’s when Lizzy Conybear a junior
from Edgewood blocked a shot and got a breakaway to
scored just under three minutes into the period. The
Warbirds tried to tie up the game by adding an extra skater
and pulling their goalie but would only score once with
two second left in the game and the Lynx won it 2-1.

Amanda Roberts Senior Profile
By : Kassy Bauman
Edited by : Maggie Oimoen
After graduating this year, Amanda Roberts
plans on attending UW Platteville and majoring in
Human Resources. Amanda’s two favorite teachers
in high school (she couldn’t decide between them)
are Ms. Bosch and Mr. Draper. She likes Ms. Bosch
because the assignment choices made her reflect on
her life and how she will grow in the future; this
made her more comfortable in moving on to the
real world. She likes Mr. Draper because of his fun
and crazy teacher skills; his unique ways to teach
his students makes the learning more memorable.
Amanda’s favorite high school class was Advanced
Composition. This class pushed her out of her
comfort zone and allowed her to reach her full
writing potential, and of course all of the laughs
and cries she enjoyed with Ms. Bosch along the
way. Outside of school, Amanda plays basketball,
softball, practices and competes for forensics, and
makes crazy memorable moments with her family
and friends. Her favorite high school memory
is winning State Basketball with the team. For
Amanda, it was an unbelievable feeling to share
that moment with a group of girls who feel like a
second family to her. Good luck Amanda in college!
A big thank you goes to Quantum Devices
for allowing the “Solid Works Master,” Scott
Phillips, to co-teach with Mr. Elfering teaching
Solid Works to the Solid Modeling class this past
semester. Scott’s expertise was a great addition.

Lynx Big Conference Game
Against Rock County
By: Carolyn Karls
Edited by: Samantha Schult
On Friday January 16th the Middleton Metro
Lynx took on the Rock County Fury at home. This game
was a must win for the Lynx to stay in the running for
conference champs. The Lynx came out with a chip on
their shoulders after tying the Fury early in the season.
The Lynx came out strong playing good offensive zone
hockey but the Fury were the ones who would score first,
they got a rush up the ice and the first period ended 1-0
Fury. The Lynx came out strong in the second period
and were getting a lot of shots on the Rock County
goalie. With only two minutes left in the period the shots
finally paid off for the Lynx and Maegan Sheehan a
senior from Middleton put the puck past the Fury goalie.
The second period ended 1-1. Coming into the third
period the Lynx knew they could not have another tie
and had to win the game in order to be in the running
for conference champs and that is just what they did.
A freshman from Edgewood, Allie Conybear took
a shot from the point and scored halfway through the
third period. The Lynx kept the 2-1 lead through the
end of the period beating the Rock County Fury 2-1.
The Lady Eagles Take
Down the Edgewood Crusaders
By: Amanda Roberts
Edited by: Samantha Schult
In the first quarter the Lady Eagles came out
confident and ready to dominate their division two
opponent, Edgewood. Scoring nineteen points to the
Crusaders six in the first quarter gave the Lady Eagles
a quick lead. The crowd was roaring with excitement
knowing that the Lady Eagles were not going to allow the
Crusaders to come into their house without a fight. The
second quarter was an even battle, with the Crusaders
scoring eleven and the Lady Eagles scoring ten. After half
time the Lady Eagles knew they had to stretch their lead
and came out stronger than the first quarter outscoring
the Crusaders fourteen to seven. Rachel Slaney was the
leading scorer with twenty and Hannah Whitish not far
behind with fifteen. The Lady Eagles finished with a
big win against the division two Edgewood Crusaders.

Eagles Take Out The Orioles
By: Wes Williams
Edited By: Samantha Schult
The three finalist from the spelling bee. (left to right)
Libby Oimoen, Iris Boehm, Jadon Wagabaza.
The Eagles made the short trip to Argyle
Tuesday night. The game was helping raise awareness
for Melanoma; so both teams wore Melanoma shirts
in warm ups to help support the cause. Once the game
started, the Eagles went to work on defense; which only
allowed the double digit quarters in the first half, resulting
in a 32-21 halftime score. The 3rd quarter was sloppy for
the Eagles, only managing 10 points, but there defense
picked up the slack and held Argyle to just 8 points.
The Eagles were just too much for the Orioles as they
pulled away for good in the 4th quarter sealing the 64-35
win. The leading scorers for the Eagles were Matthew
Myers with 21 points and Brycen Sorensen with 17.

Town of Brigham Farming Years Ago
by Jerry Davis
It has now been 125 years since voters in the large Town of Ridgeway gave
approval to split their town into two
smaller towns.
As the Town officials and Town
residents plan for a Quasqui-centennial Celebration, here’s a look back at one
of the most important activities in the
Town of Brigham, then and now.
John Helmenstine’s book, A History of the Village of Barneveld and the
Town of Brigham, Vol. One, 1976, gives
us a glimpse of land use practices, some
dating back 125 years, and more.
Of course farming has changed
considerably during this period, moving
from horse and human power to human
and tractor power.
The main crops changed, too, from
wheat and tobacco to corn, oats and hay
and now to corn, alfalfa, and soybeans,
with winter wheat and oats being important minor crops.
Crop diseases and weeds, while
controlled mostly by weeding in the
past, are often controlled by chemicals
today.
Animals on the farm were once
mainly hogs, chickens and beef, then
moving to almost exclusively dairy and
now dairy and beef, with chickens and
pigs being minor components.
Oil lamps and lanterns gave way
to electricity and now some electricity is
provided through solar collecting systems.
One thing that has not changed
is that farming, particularly caring for
the livestock, is a daily chore, often a
twice-daily job.
Even before there was a Brigham
Town, farming the land occurred on the
wide ridges and valley bottoms. Many
of the first buildings were log, chinked
with mud. Then sawed lumber entered
the picture about 1850.
Land disputes, while still occurring from time to time, were numerous
in the early days, with vigilante methods
used occasionally to prevent speculators from buying squatters’ land, with a
Claim Protective Association springing
up in the Arena area in1849.
Hogs grew fat on acorns in Brigham
areas known as Adamsville, Pokerville
and Walnut Hollow in the late 1850s.
Helmenstine writes that the Theobalds
and McCutchins became skilled at raising huge porkers for market, while more
than 600 acres of tobacco were planted
around Pokerville.
Farmers often left the area to earn
money during winter, traveling to Kentucky and Tennessee to work making
shoes and traveling north to cut lumber.
Threshing machines began to appear about 1850; one of the first being
called the groundhog because it was
built so low to the ground.
The threshing crew stories are
still told today, explaining that regular
circuits of neighborhood farms were
visited by surrounding neighbors who
threshed the oats, and ate grand meals
fixed by the women. These crews sometimes numbered close to 50 farmers.
The author let his mind wander
when describing those farmers, saying
there were big men like the Theobald’s,
slender men like the Jab’s and Owen’s.
An occasional farmer who wasn’t able
to put bundles of oats in the conveyor
had a strange smell on his breath, which
was attributed to the “boys passing the
bottle.”
Wheat declined as a main crop in
the Town of Brigham in the 1870s because of the cinch bugs and competition
from the Great Plains.
Dairying brought the need for
education about a new venture, and
cheese factories were built, too. It was
written that Fred Theobald of Middlebury, while speaking at an Iowa County
Grange convention started his speech
with “Cheese it.”
Too bad he didn’t put a patent on
that phase before a modern day cracker
company got hold of it.
At the start of the 20th century,
there were 20 cheese factories in the
Town of Brigham.
The John Deere was said to be the
most distinctive of the early tractors. It
was started by opening petcocks to reduce the compression when turning the
flywheel by hand.
Many other brands, including a
few Averys, a type of coop tractor, were
seen, too.
Looking ahead, the author writes
that farming has been good to the people of Brigham and the future (after
1976) looks even more promising as the
world population increases.

BMAP CONSERVATION CONVERSATIONS
7PM February 5, 2015
Talk Title: “The river that flows uphill: landscape
evolution, stream piracy, and the history of the lower
Wisconsin River”
Speaker: Eric Carson of the Wisconsin Geological
and Natural History Survey
Location: Wisconsin Geological and Natural History’s Research Collections and Education Center, 211
S. Blue Mounds St. in Mt. Horeb
See www.bluemounds.org for a map.
Eric will fill us in with new information on the history of the Lower Wisconsin River Valley. A series of
geologic features indicates that the lower Wisconsin
River valley was carved by a river that flowed east,
in the opposite direction of the modern river. This
river, informally referred to as the Wyalusing River,
drained the entire area of the modern Wisconsin
and upper Mississippi Rivers into the St. Lawrence
drainage basin. Come hear how this happened and
how things changed.
Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be
available.
The Blue Mounds Area Project is a community-based organization that seeks to inspire, inform
and empower private landowners in the Southwestern Wisconsin region to enjoy, protect and restore
native biodiversity and ecosystem health.

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES ARE
USUALLY CONSISTENT
AND AGGRESSIVE ADVERTISERS
A common excuse from small business owners is “The BIG
businesses can afford to advertise, but we’re just a small
company. Sure, some of these big businesses started out
with large investment capital, but consider this perspective—Perhaps they were small, gained momentum, and
continued to grow because they understood the importance
of and utilized their advertising. They out-advertised their
competition in order to gain their position, and then have
continued to advertise to maintain that position.
