It is an opportunity to tell the voters why you are running, goals if elected, etc. It is not a forum for bashing an opponent, and there is no charge. Nancy Schuhart-Candidate for Wabeno Town Board I Nancy Schuhart am a candidate for the Wabeno Town Board Supervisor. My 10+ years of experience on the town board and dedication to the Town of Wabeno will be very helpful in once again creating a positive environment to live in. While on the town board I applied for and received grant money for the Town of Wabeno, including two LRIP projects (local road improvement program) and a large housing grant. If elected I will continue to seek any grant money available. I have attended all the town board meetings since being off the town board, so I am well aware of the decisions that have been made good or bad. I am a lifelong resident, property owner and taxpayer. I believe in accountability no matter what the consequences are. You know the saying, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Well it's broke and I can help fix it! Vote Nancy Schuhart on April 7th for a positive new outlook! Wesley Ginter-Candidate for Town Supervisor in Nashville I am a candidate for Town Supervisor in the Town of Nashville. I am a lifetime resident of Nashville. My wife and I raised our family here. I graduated from Crandon High School, and then attended Antigo Vocational and graduated from the machine tool operation class. I worked as a machinist most of my working years, with the last 20 plus in the defense industry. I have some experience serving on committees. I was on the A.S.C.S. agriculture committee that dealt with farm programs. I was on the union committee as a chief steward. That job dealt with contract problems and contract negotiations. I am seeking this office to help maintain the best interests of the township. All votes will be appreciated.

The St. Patrick's Day Parade last Saturday in Pickerel Seniors, beware of this scam It was brought to my attention of a potential scam. The caller identifies themselves as taking a medical research survey. They ask about a doctor’s name that they cannot pronounce and care you received from him or her. It appears they may start this conversation in this manner. They may ask many personal questions before asking for personal information. DO NOT GIVE ANY. BE VERY CAREFUL. I am looking into this and will update you with any further information. PLEASE DO NOT continue a conversation with anyone that you do not know regarding your health, home or general life. It is unfortunate there are people out there who are scammers but the more we know, the more we can protect ourselves. BE SAFE and keep sharing information that will protect all of us! Guest Editorial Earth Day 2015 Commentary by Joe Hovel The Northwoods of Wisconsin is defined by its most abundant and rewarding resource, a resource that impacts the region’s economy, its residents, its visitors, and its image. This resource is the forestland that makes up the majority of the Northwoods. These forests are plentiful with opportunities and natural wealth. As a dominant fixture of the Northwoods economy, the forestlands are the sustainable foundation of forest products industries in the region. Many Northwoods residents have work closely tied to the forest, in silviculture, logging operations, on sawmill crews, or wood processing. Timber or finished products are shipped out of the area, drawing revenue from outside of the region. The public forests, for the most part managed for multiple uses, are vital to the timber industry and tend to attract much higher stumpage prices than do private sales. This is a benefit to all by relieving state-wide tax burden. Our public forests are a source of recreation for people enjoying a variety of activities, and feature abundant trails and terrain, acreage accessible for The Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Pickerel had a big turnout. Yes, the winds were a little brisk and the temperature could have been a little warmer, but weather never stops this event. The parade has had a great turnout in cold and in snowstorms. It is the area's first fling after the cold and short days of winter, and people love it. In the picture above, an energetic dancer also played the violin/electric guitar with an archer's bow. "What do you do with a drunken sailor?" was a good tune, and it almost sounded like a recording! The float was the Norwegian/Irish Folk Band, and while we thought that kilts were worn by Scotsmen, we also know this is America, and we do tend to blend cultures. Besides, everybody is an Irishman in this event. This is the front view of the Norwegian/Irish Folk Band Continued on page 07 They will work for syrup and a little beer On a recent visit to the Davison Timber Ranch, near Lake Lucerne, I observed a group of people who will do anything for a little maple syrup. The clever Pete Davison had this bunch of sugar craving people wading the snow to empty the bags of sap into buckets, then transfer the sap to a sleigh that was pushed by hand to the waiting sap barrels. Hard work to satisfy a sweet tooth! Oh sure, there was beer, sausage and cheese, plenty of cakes and other treats, but the whole plan is to cook the sap into maple syrup that Pete will disseminate to the workers. A lot of work! It is that time of year. Maple trees are being tapped all across the Northwoods, and steam is rising from countless cookers, both amateur and commercial. The Pearson-Pickerel Lions had a very nice float. The Pickerel-Pearson Business Association reminded us of all the year-round activities available in the area. The winners of the parade were: 1st Sing Into Spring, 2nd Pickerel/Pearson Lions Club and a tie for 3rd, St. Johns Lutheran and Dvorak's Docks. Congratulations to the winners!

Currently, I’m the treasurer of the Red Arrow Snowmobile ATV Club, Inc. and an active member of the McCaslin Lioness. What will it mean to me to be Town Clerk….the privilege to serve in a community that I’ve grown to love, the desire to implement operational effectiveness, and the pleasure to interact with the people who live and vacation in Townsend. I will use my personal and professional experiences and my dedication to the community to serve as the Town Clerk with pride. Please vote for me, Terry DeMoulin, for Townsend Town Clerk on April 7th. Dawn Jakubiec-Candidate for Wabeno School Board I live at 5815 State Highway 52, in the Township of Freedom, only a mile down the road from where I grew up. I am the second of four generations that have or are attending the Wabeno School, graduating in 1971. My father, myself, and my two children all graduated from Wabeno High, and I currently have two grandchildren in Wabeno Elementary. I have been in banking since I graduated, and I have 43 years at the bank in Wabeno, where I am currently the Bank Secrecy Officer and Wabeno Branch Supervisor. I have college credits in many aspects of banking and a degree in principles of banking. My community involvement consists of currently being on the school board, secretary/treasurer of the Wabeno Area Chamber of Commerce, member of Wabeno Lions Club and the Roller Booster Club. The most pressing need for the district is, of course, money. Madison forgets about the rural schools up North. We as a board have the difficult task of making the best choices possible for our students education while maintaining a reasonable budget. With all of my banking experience and knowledge in accounting, budgeting, investments, etc., I feel that I am a great asset to the board, and I hope to continue to receive your support in the upcoming election.

I was truly born within 100 yard of where I live now, how many people can say that in these times? Many people in our area look down on our Town and feel that we have nothing to offer, myself, I am proud to have gone off for higher education and returned here to raise my family. Our people are our greatest asset, that is why we remain here! It has been my pleasure to serve on the Laona Town Board since 2003 and the last six years as Town Chairman. Since being on the Town board, I have worked with other board members to keep the Town Tax levy flat while providing opportunity for many changes. While many people do not realize it, the Town portion of the tax levy has not gone up more than the 2% state limit annually in more than 12 years, we have maintained and improved services and we have seen major changes in what the Town offers. Changes that I have witnessed in the last 12 years include the following: 1. Finalization and establishment of the Nicolet State Trail that brings tourism dollars directly through the heart of Laona. Although most do not recognize it, this trail was promoted by the Town board through negotiations with the prior owner. This negotiation also provided the Town with the land on which the recycling center is now located. 2. Completion of the Laona Comprehensive Land Use Plan and negotiation with County Zoning to maintain the development rights of Laona Taxpayers. 3. Building of Centennial Park and Playground at no costs to the taxpayers. This park was built on land donated by the Baltus family and improvements were through donations from the Connor Foundation and the Laona VFW. 4. Establishment of the Town shooting range on Klasna Lane- with assistance from local residents and local contractors in construction and maintenance. 5. Building of the downtown ball park. This project was a cooperative project completed by the Laona Quarterback Club and the Town itself. The Town provided the land and the costs of the engineered plan and the Quarterback Club provided funding for construction. Additional funding was provided by the Forest County Potawatomi Community and Plum Creek with donations of labor for construction of the dug-outs from local contractors. The area now provides a legal sized ballpark for high school athletics, softball leagues, and also a site for our annual Fourth of July fireworks, which have become a premier show in the Forest County area. 6. Expansion of businesses in Laona- While we CONTINUED ON PG. 8 Death Notices Cherie A. LaSage, age 63, of Townsend, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Saturday, March 14, 2015.

Nicolet College’s two-week Graphic Novel class to run June 1 - 12 Three college credits in two weeks? It’s possible at Nicolet College for students who enroll in the Graphic Novel class which will meet weekdays June 1 to 12. Laid out in a style similar to a comic book, graphic novels cover all literary genres found in traditional fiction and non-fiction books. Topics range from memoirs and historical events to love stories, fantasy, and religion, said Shane Teter, Nicolet College English instructor. Teter first taught the Graphic Novel class in 2008, making Nicolet one of the first colleges in the state to teach the new genre. “Now, just about every college offers a comics and graphic novel class,” he said. The class will meet from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Because of the extended time in class each day, sessions will be broken up into a lecture and discussion portion, small-group work, and student presentations. “One of the things that make graphic novels and comics work so well in an accelerated class is you can accomplish a full read in a relatively short period of time,” Teter explained. “It makes the reading load much more manageable and workable.” Taking the class outside of the normal academic year many reduce the number of credits students need to take in future semesters or catch up on credits, if necessary. The credits transfer to most other colleges, including every campus in the University of Wisconsin System. This makes it perfect for students who attend other colleges and are in northern Wisconsin for the summer. To register, visit nicoletcollege.edu or call the Welcome Center at (715) 365-4493; TDD 711 or 1-800-947-3539. Registration is also open for regular Summer Semester classes, which run June 5 to July 31.

With this draw, public lands attract dollars to the Northwoods when vacationers are lured by the charm of the Northwoods. They come to enjoy the natural character of the Northwoods, not the development that has overtaken the forests and lakes in recent decades. While either publicly or privately owned lands can demonstrate Northwoods appeal, public lands are unique in offering these benefits to everyone, while not acting as a tax burden on any individuals. These commonly owned lands also insure the preservation of our Northwoods atmosphere. While many private lands have been divided into smaller tracts in a trend of forest fragmentation, public lands are assured to remain viable forest and continue contributing to our Northwoods economy and way of life. In an environmental context, public lands are much less vulnerable to fragmentation and deforestation than are private lands, and are invaluable habitats for the abundant wildlife of the Northwoods. Maintaining low population densities preserves lakes and streams and surface and ground water quality. As large, contiguous tracts of land, these forests create expanses of undeveloped ecosystems that preserve connectivity and well-functioning environments. The number of threats to the environment and our Northwoods grows each year. At the same time, many of our elected officials have attempted to erode the many benefits of the public lands, by hampering the State’s ability to purchase land, and even encouraging the sale of public lands as we have recently seen in Vilas County. They use the false argument that these resources are a burden to own. Maybe they are unaware of the revenue these forests generate or perhaps these ill-guided folks do not recognize the fact that a forest does not demand services, and requires neither black-top roads nor new schools. Or possibly they are beholden to an interest other than the common good. The budget currently under consideration in the state legislature would eliminate any Stewardship program funding for state and county land purchases and would even halt state funding for Forest Legacy easements. These easements are a unique publicprivate partnership, maintaining a privately owned timber base but preventing fragmentation or development and allowing for public recreation. I consider these lands ‘public’ in my comments here. I have always thought this partnership would be a compromise that all could agree to, protecting both our timber industry and our way of life. Today there are timely opportunities to continue to conserve much of the vast timber investment lands, which for decades were owned by industry. Land values are greatly reduced from only a few years ago, and these investment owner funds turn over quickly. To protect some of these lands requires diligence and available funding, such as that from the Stewardship program. The second-home economy in the area has proven a bust, but the timber industry is thriving and offers hope for expansion of economic activity and a long-term sustainable future in our region. Failure to protect our working forestlands will be catastrophic to the future of the industry as well as tourism. Forestlands have demonstrated their remarkable value to our state and all of its citizens. An endorsement of public lands is an endorsement of our Northwoods as a legacy for future generations. Because of the great sacrifices of our predecessors, these publicly owned lands and the riches they hold belong to us all. For this we can be very proud. Will future generations judge our stewardship of this resource with pride? The School District of Laona is hiring substitute teachers for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year.

P49 Pre-College Academy for 9th, 10th graders coming to Nicolet Students who will be high school freshmen or sophomores next year will have the opportunity to explore careers and learn new skills in environmental science, engineering, and health care over five Saturdays this spring at Nicolet College. The Pre-College Academy will focus on the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) aspects of each career path. “Careers in STEM are some of the fastest growing and highest paying career sectors in the state and nation,” said Kelly Anunson, Nicolet College dual credit coordinator. “By attending the academy, students will have a much better understanding of these high-demand fields and what it takes to enter them.” Cost is $487, which covers all five Saturdays. A grant from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will cover the tuition for any student who is eligible for free or reduced lunch. Each session will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and lunch will be provided each day. Nicolet will provide bus transportation to and from meeting points in area communities. The scheduled Saturdays and topics are as follow: April 11 – Health Sciences April 18 – Manufacturing April 25 – Design Process May 2 – Environmental Science May 9 – Digital Video Editing Along with learning about careers, students will also enjoy developing a wide variety of valuable skills. “Everything will be designed around hands-on activities that are fun for students,” Anunson added. “Activities will focus on problem-solving and analytical thinking – key skills for success in high school, college, and the workplace.” For more information, or to register, contact Anunson at (715) 365-4407, 1-800-544-3039, ext. 4407: TDD 711 or 1-800-947-3529; or by email at [email protected] W8792 County Road W, Antigo, WI (715) 627-4616 • (715) 219-3546 Candidate Spotlight CONT FROM PG 4 have witnessed loss of some businesses since 2003, we have also witnessed the building of T-Bob’s,the Family Dollar store, Northern Motor Sports, expansion of the Flooring mills, Collins Service and building of a small sawmill in Laona. New this year will be opening of an ATV accessible campground. Major credit for these developments go to the owners and other businesses that assisted, however the Town provided assistance where it could. The Town also provided assistance in obtaining Federal grant funding which improved the rail line for the Lumberjack Special which provides many youth with jobs in the summer. 7. Upgrading town equipment- through the last 12 years, the Town has replaced two dump trucks, an endloader, two police vehicles and obtained equipment for snow-removal on sidewalks. 8. Upgrading of fire department equipment and stabilization of fire department staffing. In 2003 the Town bought the first new fire truck since 1964. This was the beginning of equipment replacement that was required to insure that younger members would join the fire department. In 2008 an additional fire truck was purchased and an additional replacement was purchased in January 2015. In 2013, personal protective equipment was replaced through a grant from the Forest County Potawatomi Community. This truck and equipment upgrade plan has resulted in new fire department members, in fact the Laona Fire Department was named volunteer fire department of the year in 2014. 9. Cooperative trail establishment with local snowmobile clubs- the Town assisted with movement of trails off roadways to allow trails to be maintained longer into the spring. 10. Opening of town roadways to ATV traffic through cooperation with the Forest County ATV Association. 11. Installation of playground equipment at Silver Lake Beach with a generous donation of funding by the Forest County Potawatomi Community. 12. Improved relationships with, upgrading and expansion of the Laona Rescue Unit including replacement of 2 squads. 13. Upgrading of curbside garbage pick-up to include recyclables. I do not take credit for these changes, but I do commend the taxpayers of Laona for their support in making these changes a reality. While many taxpayers question their tax rates, I always ask, what do I get for my tax money? I believe what we have accomplished with our limited resources in the last 12 years is amazing. Town government provides service including road maintenance, road replacement, snow plowing, fire protection, police protection, rescue and ambulance services, park and cemetery maintenance, public library services and business development assistance. Through the years the Town Board has worked to hold the line on taxes while making changes and improvements where we could, I believe that is all that can be asked for? I commend the many groups that work hard to provide services which we could not otherwise afford, these include groups such as the Laona Rescue Unit, the Laona Volunteer Fire Department, the 100 Mile Snow Safari, the Lumberjack Memorial Trails, the Forest County ATV Association, the Forest County Chamber of Commerce and the Forest County Economic Development Partnership. Appreciation also needs to go out to groups such as the Laona VFW, VFW Ladies Auxillary, the Laona Lions Club, the Laona Quarterback Club, Laona Alumni Club, and the PTA which complete fund raising events and support many efforts and events to improve our community. The people and businesses that support these efforts also deserve recognition, without financial support and donations these efforts could not succeed! I appreciate all the readers for their time, the taxpayers of Laona, and I would appreciate your support at the polls to continue our improvements into the future. In any event, I hope all voting aged people make sure to get out and vote on April 7th, many of our citizens, past and present, sacrificed to provide you that right!

P49 All cruelty springs from weakness. The Lowdown on Fructose What is fructose? Fructose is a small sugar molecule that's naturally found in honey, fruit and sweet vegetables, such as beets and corn. It also can be paired with glucose and processed into high-fructose corn syrup (HFC S), a sugar additive popular with food manufacturers. High-fructose corn syrup is a corn-based sweetener that's widely used in processed foods, especially soft drinks. It's been the subject of lively debates among nutrition pundits. Some believe it contributes to the obesity epidemic, while others think it's just another sugar -- no different than what's in your sugar bowl. Some studies suggest excessive consumption of added sugars is linked to insulin resistance, high triglycerides, heart disease and liver damage, but more research is needed. With no consensus on either side of the debate, nutrition experts do agree on one thing: Most North Americans consume too many added sugars and not enough fruit. Per person, consumption of fructose added as HFCS to foods has risen five-fold during the past 100 years. Is sugar in fruit safe to eat? Yes. In fact, guidelines suggest eating at least 2 cups of fruit every day (more or less depending on your individual needs). At this intake level, your fructose consumption will be relatively low -- and it's naturally occurring, not added, sugar. Plus, the fiber, vitamins and antioxidants in fruit are part of a healthy diet. Learn more at ChooseMyPlate.gov. Consider this: An average 16-ounce soft drink has 53 grams of sugar, while a pear or an apple has just 12 grams. Bottom line: If you consume sugar, it's better to get it from fruit than from processed foods.

Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest trail closures RHINELANDER, Wis. (March 11, 2015) – The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest’s snowmobile, allterrain vehicle (ATV), utility-terrain vehicle (UTV), horse and bicycle trails are now closed and will remain closed until further notice. During this time period, the use of wheeled motorized vehicles, mountain bikes, horses or other pack or saddle animals is prohibited on National Forest System trails. This seasonal closure of trails during spring break-up reduces rutting and erosion of trails which often occurs when the soil is saturated. Protecting recreation trails during this time period reduces the likelihood of trail closures during the high use season to repair damaged segments. ATV routes and other trails designated by towns under state law are not affected by this closure. Trail users should check local regulations for trails they plan to use. ATV, horse and mountain bike enthusiasts are encouraged to do their part in helping to protect everyone’s recreation opportunities by honoring this closure. To check the status of recreational trails in your area go to , follow us on Twitter at , or call your local Forest Service Ranger District office.
