Cameras, buzzers installed at school entrances

Starting this week, visitors to several Oregon schools have to appear on camera to receive permission to enter the buildings. In January, the Oregon School Board approved spending up to $40,000 to add a variety of security cameras and intercom sys- tems that would require building staff to “buzz in” visitors during normal school hours. The new systems were installed in recent weeks and went live Monday. Of the district’s six schools, three – Oregon High School, Oregon Middle School and Brooklyn Ele- mentary School – now have surveillance cameras mount- ed near building entrances to allow office staff to see visi- tors before letting them in. The other three schools – Prairie View and Neth- erwood Knoll elementary schools and Rome Corners

A buzzer at the entrance of Oregon Middle School is part a push for better security in the district.

Intermediate School – are set up so staff could see visitors and press a switch to unlock the office door. Camera-and-buzzer sys- tems were also installed at the district’s central office

and the community pool, said business manager Andy Weiland. Total costs exceeded pro- jections and were roughly $50,000, Weiland said Mon- day, mostly because of a

decision to add a system at the pool and because of tech- nical glitches when install- ing the systems at the high school’s two main entrances. The board approved the changes by a 4-2 vote in January, one month after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., that killed 20 young children and six educators. Some members questioned if the changes would make schools more secure, while others felt it was a necessary step following the Connecti- cut shooting. Other security changes are coming this summer. For an estimated $48,145, Prairie View will get a new, secure vestibule, and a hallway will be reconfigured to allow kids to get to the cafeteria without passing through the vestibule. OHS will get card- activated locks on 15 interior doors for $17,500, according to a capital maintenance plan approved by the board last month.

Proposed insurance changes stir outrage

Seth Jovaag

Unified Newspaper Group

Faced with an $850,000 spike in health insurance costs next school year, Oregon School District officials recently proposed hiking how much employ- ees pay for health care. But after a tense, nearly two-hour discussion, that change was postponed Monday by the Oregon School Board on a split, 4-3 vote that exposed fissures in a group that recently added two new members. Most district staff cur- rently pay a 10 percent share of health insurance premiums and no deduct- ibles beyond that. The new proposal would hike deductibles to $500 annu- ally for individuals and $1,000 for families and impose higher co-pays on prescription drugs,

emergency room visits and CT or MRI scans. The changes would nearly wipe out the $850,000 increase, offi- cials said, and would help the board offer salary increases while avoiding layoffs, higher class sizes or program cuts. Board member Steve Zach said the changes are unfortunate but necessary, given the district’s budget- ary constraints. “We all recognize that this is not something we

officials seek more downtown area parking

Several nights a week, people form a long line out- side Señor Peppers Mexican Restaurant waiting to get into the newly expanded business. And with a new 100- seat restaurant set to open soon on South Main Street, downtown Oregon has sud- denly emerged as a vibrant small-town business district. But with the increased

activity comes a need for more parking. In an attempt to address the need, the Village Board last week authorized village administrator Mike Gracz to make an offer to purchase a property at 146 S. Main St. in hopes of building a new parking lot. The property owners, Deb Bossingham and Steve Newton, have made a coun- ter offer, and the two parties are negotiating on a pur- chase price for the historic home. Gracz said he’s not sure but expects that if the deal goes through, the village

Agency’s opposition clouds recreation trail’s future

Fish and Wildlife Service refuses to allow a boardwalk

Bill livick

Unified Newspaper Group

Village leaders were unpleasantly surprised last week when an official from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser- vice said the village would not be allowed to build a boardwalk across the

agency’s property. That news put the brakes on a plan to build a new recreation path just north and west of the village – and left offi- cials wondering how to accomplish their goal. For much of the past year, village administrator Mike Gracz and Village President Steve Staton believed that Fish and Wildlife was supportive of a plan to construct a boardwalk across part of the Swan Pond Waterfowl

Production area in order to establish a bicycle/pedestrian trail from the Alpine Business Park to Fish Hatchery Road. But Gracz told the Village Board last Monday that Steve Lenz, district man- ager of the Fish and Wildlife Service, informed him that the agency would not approve the boardwalk because the construction could interfere with the area’s delicate ecosystem.

Teacher resigns after accusation

Seth Jovaag

Unified Newspaper Group

An Oregon High School math teacher accused in

April of accosting a student has resigned. The teacher, who is not being named by the Observ- er because he has not been charged with a crime, was on paid leave since mid- April until he submitted

a letter of resignation last

week, said superintendent Brian Busler. Busler, citing employee confidentiality, declined to name the employee or say whether the accusation played a role in his resigna- tion. An April 10 entry in the Oregon Police Department log book said a 16-year-old student accused the teacher of grabbing him by the arm and pulling his fingers back to take a ball, then twisting his arm in a way that caused

him to fall. Police Lt. Karey Clark denied a request from the Observer to see the full police report because the Dane County District’s Attorney’s office has not yet decided whether to press charges. The Observer obtained a copy of a May 4 letter sent by OHS principal Kelly Meyers to parents and stu-

dents in the teacher’s class. It said the teacher will be on leave “for the balance of the school year and will no lon- ger teach your son/daugh- ter’s math class.” The letter also apologized “for the challenges associat- ed with the absence of your child’s teachers” and said a certified math teacher will fill in and other OHS math teachers will be available for “additional instruction and support.”

“Please bear in mind that wetland preservation is among the highest of pri- orities for Wetland Manage- ment Districts, so the U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service sets the bar pretty high when it comes to projects and practices that concern wet- lands,” Lenz wrote in a letter to the village.

Staton, who has pushed hard to acquire the ease- ments and funding needed to create a trail, said Fish and Wildlife’s decision, coupled with the Alpine Dairy’s

refusal to grant the village an easement to cross its proper- ty with the path, has sudden- ly cast doubt on the project’s feasibility. “U.S. Fish and Wildlife has been on board the whole time with the project, but they now told us they don’t want a boardwalk over the wetland,” Staton said. “And we can’t get the easement for the Keller property, so we’re stalled right now.” Staton said Lenz offered to talk with sisters Dorothy and Betty Keller, owners of the Alpine Dairy, on behalf of the village in an attempt to acquire an easement on their property. The Observer’s phone calls to the Kellers were not returned. For the past year, Staton and village staff have been planning to build a $1.2 mil- lion trail that would extend from the business park to Fish Hatchery Road, with a long-term goal of the county later extending the path west to the Badger State Trail. That would give cyclists the opportunity to pedal from

If the Alpine Dairy owners

would allow the village to

build part of the path on their property, that would elimi- nate the need for a board- walk, Staton said.

$300,000.

It would also increase the

value of the Alpine Dairy’s property, Staton said. He noted that future resi- dential development of the Alpine Dairy property “probably won’t happen in the next 20 to 25 years at least, because the property would have to be annexed by the village. Dane County won’t grant an unsewered development out there, so if they (the Keller fam- ily) want to put residential development on that prop- erty, they’re going to have to become part of the village, and that’s going to require sewer and water,” Staton explained. “That would be a long ways off.” The property is within the village’s 3-mile extraterrito- rial jurisdiction, “so the vil- lage will control that devel- opment, no matter when it happens,” Staton said. “Given that, whenever it’s

developed – if it is – the vil- lage will require a bike trail anyhow. It would be really

nice to get the bike trail in there now so it could be used the next number of years.” The trail would be built along the northern edge of the property and wouldn’t

“change the dynamics out there very much,” Staton said.

Without a boardwalk, vil- lage officials estimate the total cost of the trail at about $895,700; with the board- walk, the trail would cost an estimated $1,219,600 to build. Last month, the board directed village staff to apply for a second Dane County PARC matching grant of $250,000, as well as a $480,000 Department of Natural Resources Knowles- Nelson Stewardship grant. Gracz said upon learning of Fish and Wildlife’s deci- sion, he waited to submit the grant applications until dis- cussing the situation with the board. So far, the village has been given an easement donation for the path from the Har- ris family on Fish Hatchery Road and planned on buying an easement from the Wis- consin Department of Cor- rections for about $10,000. Last Monday, the Vil- lage Board delayed action on the DOC easement until it knows for sure the Keller sisters’ final decision. “If they grant the ease- ment, then it gets all done,” Staton said. “We can go into their woods and don’t need a boardwalk – and that makes it much more appeal- ing because the cost to build goes down dramatically.”

would relocate the house and convert the property into a parking lot. He and the board have set aside something in the range of $400,000 to buy the property and build the lot. And the board is check- ing into other properties as well, including a house on Jefferson Street, next to the Jefferson Street parking lot behind the row of businesses on South Main Street, that’s owned by local developer Paul Lynch. Lynch responded to the vil- lage’s inquiry about his prop- erty this week, saying he is not interested in selling at this point in time. The village is also look- ing to refurbish the Jeffer- son Street parking lot, which business owners and village officials alike have described as “an eyesore.” The lot has not been resurfaced since the

mid-1970s.

“That parking lot needs to come up to the standard of the rest of the downtown,” Village President Steve Sta- ton said at last week’s Vil- lage Board meeting. The board asked Public Works director Mark Below to request the engineering firm MSA Professional Ser- vices to provide a proposal for designing improvements to the village-owned lot behind the South Main Street businesses. Village officials have budgeted about $50,000 for the improvements, which could include resurfacing the pavement and redesigning the layout of the lot. “We want to do that lot this year,” Gracz said.

Downtown parking

The Village Board spent a long time last week discuss- ing what to do about down- town parking. Everyone

agreed that the Jefferson Street lot needs improve- ments. Trustee Phil Harms stressed that “time is of the essence” to get more parking downtown. “We could be sitting here at this time next year with nothing,” he warned. “That is not acceptable. If we can move in an expeditious man- ner, maybe by fall we can have a lot that folks can use.” He said until more park- ing is established, business owners ought to encourage their employees to park a few blocks away and walk to work. After hearing Harms and trustee David Donovan endorse spending money to create more parking down- town, trustee Jerry Bollig asked, “What do we tell business owners who aren’t downtown why we provide money for parking there but

not for them? How do we justify that?” Donovan responded that the board ought to listen to all requests for local government assistance and then “deal with it on a case-by-case basis.” “I’m not willing to say I won’t help out one part of town just because I’m wor- ried about what I might have to do in another part of town,” he said. “That just doesn’t make any sense.” Donovan added, “If we buy property for a parking lot, that’s an asset for future economic development.” Staton noted the downtown is the “hub of the commu- nity,” and the village should continue the revitalization that it started in 2008. “It’s a small area, but it’s a multi-faceted downtown,” he said. “Not all communities have that.” Trustee Jeanne Carpenter

asserted that a “vibrant downtown is directly related to a vibrant community.” She said everyone wants Oregon to be a vibrant com- munity, and there currently is not enough available parking. “I don’t want people to not go downtown because there’s no parking,” she said. In an email to village offi- cials and also at last week’s meeting, business owner Bonnie Thiel said she has concerns about the village buying the historic home on South Main Street to create more parking. She and her husband, Jerry, have spent well over $100,000 restoring historic buildings on South Main Street, and Thiel said she would not support destroying or moving the house. “As one of the first resi- dences with substantial his- toric significance, I would hope it would remain in

its current location,” Thiel wrote. “Additional parking gained by the destruction

of the site/trees would be a

shame, and I oppose this type

of ‘progress.’” But Thiel’s view was

a minority opinion. The

board’s unanimous decision

to offer to buy the Bossing-

ham/Newton property was supported by Chamber of Commerce director Brett Fra- zier and downtown property owner Scott MacWilliams. “I only hope that you look long-term,” MacWilliams told the board. “We’ve only got about one-third of the number of parking stalls that we need.” Then, referring to Dono- van’s earlier comment, he said, “If you acquire an asset, it’s an asset.”

Business Improvement District idea lacks support

Trustee Phil Harms last Monday pitched the con- cept of creating a Business Improvement District down- town but didn’t get much support for the idea. “I know there’s not a busi- ness owner in town that likes the idea, but we’re here tonight to give down- town Oregon a rebirth,” Harms said. “We’re all in this together.” Harms was mostly correct about others’ opinions of the idea, but not entirely. Business and property owner John Deits said he would support a Business Improvement District if the money it generated were used for things like hiring a service to provide uniform sidewalk shoveling or maintaining the planters downtown, but not for establishing and maintain- ing a new parking lot. Downtown property and business owner Bon- nie Thiel said she wouldn’t support establishing a Busi- ness Improvement District because there had been too much “deferred main- tenance” of the village’s municipal lot on Jefferson Street. Chamber of Commerce director Brett Frazier called the idea a “nonstarter.” He noted that a Business Improvement District would cost downtown business owners money that many can’t afford. “I’ve been in many con- versations about that and the downtown property owners are not in support of it,” he told the Observer. “They’re looking to see the village refurbish the parking lot and maybe build another. “The business owners feel they’re investing substan- tially in their buildings and businesses, and it will be reflected in increased prop- erty values, which go on the tax roll. They’re asking for adequate municipal parking in the lot that already exists, and we support the addition of new or improved parking downtown.” Trustee David Donovan said he would rather levy special assessments against downtown business and property owners than create a BID, an idea that Jerry and Bonnie Thiel also rejected. “I have no idea of what

specific projects we would do,” Donovan said. “All I’m saying is if we do something downtown that spends public funds to benefit private busi- ness, there has to be some give back to the community.” Jerry Thiel responded that by pouring their own money into historic buildings and making other investments downtown, business owners

are already giving back to the community. Deits asserted that a new or refurbished parking lot would benefit everyone who uses the downtown – not only the property and business own- ers. “It’s part of the social fabric of the community,”

he said. – Bill Livick

Man seeks return of iPad with sentimental value

I was at the Firefly last Saturday morning for a meeting.

I left around 12:30 p.m. after

talking with a friend and later, to

my dismay, discovered that I had left my iPad on a stool at the back of the coffeehouse. When I discovered that my iPad wasn’t with the other things I had picked up, I returned to the Fire- fly and checked with the staff but someone had apparently taken it, because nobody had turned it in. This iPad is very special to me.

It belonged to my wife who passed

away from brain cancer nearly two years ago. It was given to her by her mother and sister, and it has

a lot of photos and a video from

my wife’s memorial service along

that someone could think that it is OK to take and keep something

so personal that doesn’t belong to them. The Firefly has been a very friendly and welcoming place. It is disturbing to think that some- one who frequents this wonder- ful establishment would steal my iPad.

I haven’t reported the loss of my

iPad to the police, yet, and would

greatly appreciate help in recover- ing it. Someone who frequents the

Firefly has to have it or may have seen the person who took it.

I am hopeful that someone who

has or finds my iPad will return it

to the Firefly, no questions asked.

May is National Bike Month—

a perfect time for our community

to recognize and celebrate all the benefits of bicycling. Bicycling keeps us healthy, car- ries us efficiently from point A to point B, saves us from high gas prices, and makes our air cleaner and our roads less congested. Bicycling is good for our com- munity and helps address many of our most pressing societal and environmental problems. Bicy- cling is fun! Americans spend $81 billion on bicycling annually, generat- ing 770,000 jobs and $10 billion in taxes, according to the Outdoor Industry Association.

From 1990 to 2009, the num-

ber of U.S. bike trips doubled, from 1.8 to 4 billion trips per year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Adolescents who bike are 48 percent less likely to be over- weight as adults, as found in a 2009 study. If more people in our commu- nity bike, even just once a week or once a month, we’ll all be better off (even those who don’t ride). This month, dust off your bike and give two wheels a try!

Making good choices is everyone’s responsibility

R ecent debates and discus-

sion regarding health care

costs and the growing

amounts of sickness and disease in this country have raised ques- tions about our personal respon- sibility to the larger group of society. Is my health or lack of health

a national concern? Yes it is,

and so is yours. One can argue that America is lag- ging behind the progressive efforts of other countries that currently pro- vide universal

health care for their citizens.

I feel strongly that all people

have a right to health care, but we do have to confront the fact that America is also considered the sickest nation in the world. If we don’t reduce the amount of disease and illness in our society, there is no way that America or ANY country can be expected to financially support so many sick people. America’s biggest avoidable health care plague is obesity. Sugar, salt, fat – too much of this makes too much of us. We all know the key ingredients of moderate exercise, clean water, eating your veggies and staying away from the junk food. Michelle Obama, Jaime Oli- ver, The Biggest Loser and many others have been promot- ing the fight against obesity and the illness it creates for years. And yet, the obesity rates con- tinue to rise and our nation’s

yet, the obesity rates con- tinue to rise and our nation’s Deits health continues to decline.

Deits

health continues to decline. But we here in America love our freedom and we love our addictions. Sugar is my drug of choice – if it’s dipped in chocolate, I probably need to eat it. Even though I don’t have a weight issue, I know that if I don’t keep

this addiction in check I will create problems with the func- tion of my pancreas, hardening of artery tissue along with a million other destructive side effects of too much sugar in the body. But even if I do eat too much sugar, so what? This is America and if I want to kill myself with sugar, that’s my choice! The only problem with my freedom of “death by chocolate”

scenario is that I probably won’t die suddenly. I will die slowly as my organs begin to fail to function properly, I feel sick, I get pills, etc. Now my choices have created illness with the potential of long-term medical dependency. It’s not just about me any- more. Perhaps I am hiding from the responsibility of my abusive behavior behind a flawed belief of freedom. Let’s face it: People don’t really want “freedom.” We want freedom from being responsible for the consequences of our actions. We see this reflected when our kids break a lamp or when a mining company strips the land of all its resources and leaves behind a toxic wasteland for the surrounding community to deal with or when I eat too many cookies. Perhaps we all have a

bigger responsibility to society to make healthier choices. People want complete free- dom to own guns, but they don’t want to accept the inherent dangers of living in a society that has complete access to guns. Wall Street wants com- plete freedom to run the stock exchange without responsibility to those who lose retirement savings in their rigged games. Corporations want freedom to create food addictions without a care as to its contribution to the nation’s obesity problems. We like freedom, not respon- sibility. This unwillingness to act responsibly is impacting our nation in a destructive way. We must begin to define our person- al responsibilities to the greater whole of our society if we are to move forward in a progressive way. We all want certain things from our communities, but we need to ask what we are willing to contribute so that all of us can have a better quality of life. The time has come for all of us to pull our heads out of the denial sandbox and have lots of meaningful discussion over Freedom vs. Responsibility. The reality of life is that you can’t have one without the oth- er, and we as a society must be willing to embrace this attitude and make progressive, healthy choices and decisions for the good of our communities.

How Failure Makes Us Stronger

We have the capacity to learn from our mistakes, and thus there is a great advantage in making some big mistakes early in life. Most people have a number of failed relationships before they find the love of their life. Those failed relationships help them to know what they are looking for in a mate. Failures in business may be costly, but they often lead to more profitable and better-run businesses in the future. Even in the realm of health, we see that getting sick often immunizes us against that particular disease in the future and broken bones heal themselves to become stronger than the original. It seems that we live in a universe that thrives on adversity. Stressing a muscle makes it stronger, and the bones attached to that muscle become stronger too. Character works on the same principle. Those who have been profoundly tested are usually the most robust and resilient. People born before the Great Depression and who then lived through it have a lower risk of becoming depressed than people born after the depression. Perhaps the stress and strain that many are living through now will bring out the best in them. Don’t seek an easy life for you or your children. If you want them to be robust and resilient, let them expe- rience a loss or failure every now and then. They just might thank you for it someday.

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4

New signs to go up after board amends village code

Bill livick

Unified Newspaper Group

Community service orga- nizations will be allowed to place messages on signs that are not on the organi- zations’ own property after the Village Board last week unanimously approved an amendment to Chapter 17 of the village code. Previously, organiza- tions could not place signs “off-site,” explained Mark Below, director of Public Works. Now, with a property owner’s permission, service groups will be able to place message signs elsewhere in the village.

The change was adopted after Oregon Area Cham- ber of Commerce execu- tive director Brett Frazier brought the measure for- ward. The chamber is erect- ing new message signs at the north and south ends of the village and replac- ing old signs that welcomed visitors to the village and announced community ser- vice groups’ events. The new signs will be placed on 4-inch by 4-inch poles and will be larger than the ones they’re replacing, Frazier explained. “These are community service signs,” he said. “They’ll be very similar to those trailer signs but

will look 100 percent bet- ter. They’ll be on 4-by- 4-inch posts, and the signs are about 8-feet wide and 6-feet tall, with four lines of channels for the letters to go in. We’ll get all new letters too, so it’ll be much nicer for the nonprofits and community organizations that use those signs on an almost constant basis.” One sign will go up on the north side at 833 N. Main St. on Union Bank and Trust land, between Dorn’s True Value Hard- ware and the bank. The other sign will be on village right-of-way at 981 Park St., near the Sienna Crest Assisted Living facility.

Frazier said the signs will be installed this week or next and will “hold up bet- ter” than the signs they’re replacing. “These are not for busi- ness advertising but for community service events,” Frazier told the Village Board. He said two business members of the chamber donated a good deal of money to purchase the new signs, which will replace the existing signs on rusted trailers that occasionally have a flat tire. The signs will present a much better image of the village as visitors come to town, Frazier said.

OHS team fares well in auto competition

Seth Jovaag

Unified Newspaper Group

Facing some stiff com- petition, Seb Goplin and Shane Walford proved last week that they know a thing or two about cars. The Oregon High School students earned scholar- ships and other prizes last Wednesday when they finished second in Wis- consin’s 2013 Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills Com- petition at the Milwaukee Area Technical College in Mequon. The competition required 10, two-student teams from around the state to diagnose and repair identical “bugs” in 2013 Ford Focus sedans in under 90 minutes. Goplin, a junior, and Walford, a senior, were one of just two teams to fix their car in the time allot- ted. The other team, from Grafton High School, won only because they were slightly faster, said OHS technology and engineering teacher Ned Lease. “It’s a really big honor,”

Lease said. The team of Goplin and Walford qualified for the competition by collectively scoring in the top 10 state- wide on a written exam in February. Both students won their choice of scholarships – $8,000 to attend Universal Technical Institute, $5,000 to attend Ohio Techni- cal College or $2,000 for MATC – plus about $300 in tools. Goplin, a junior, has tak- en two years of auto tech- nology classes at OHS and said he likes to work on vehicles in his spare time, such as the 1987 Chevrolet K20 pickup truck he recent- ly rebuilt with his cousin. He’s considering studying diesel equipment technol- ogy after high school. Wal- ford could not be reached. T h e G r a f t o n t e a m advances to the national competition in Dearborn, Mich., in June. Last year, an OHS team finished eighth at the state competition, Lease said.

Racing to individual titles

Girls finish third as boys grab fifth tuesday at the Badger South meet

Anthony Iozzo

Assistant sports editor

Junior Jawon Turner never expected to be a conference cham- pion for the Oregon boys track and field team. So it would make sense that he was surprised to jump a foot ahead of Milton senior Brock Krebs to claim the triple jump title Tuesday at the Badger South Conference meet at Oregon High School.

“I was very shocked,” said Turner, who reached 42 feet, 6

1/2 inches. “I came out jumping not too well at first but somehow

managed to pull it

believe it at first.” Turner hadn’t done the triple jump before this year, and he had to not only learn the event, but also had to get better every week in order to compete. Turner had to go through long hours of practices with coaches. “They were very specific drills to help get our feet forward, head back and not up too high,” he said. “It was a lot of technical stuff but was also mental.”

Boys golf

Postseason hopes depend on season- best scores

Anthony Iozzo

Assistant sports editor

The Oregon boys golf team must shoot much lower than its season average if it expects to advance beyond the Mid- dleton regional at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 21, at Pleasant View Golf Course. The Panthers will need to shoot well below the 330s, most likely below 317 if they expect to get past teams that have shot in the low 300s. Oregon must contend with Madison Memorial, ranked No. 4 according to the Wis- consin High School Golf Association, Verona, ranked No. 8, Middleton, ranked No. 10, Stoughton, an honorable mention, Waunakee, Sauk Prairie and Madison West. But as head coach Ben Cowan has said this sea- son, there are no expecta- tions beyond having fun and improving in a season meant to be a rebuilding year, with only two seniors on the team. An example of what the Panthers will need to shoot to move on can be seen from last week’s Morgan Stanley Shootout at Hawks Landing Golf Course. Regional opponent Verona shot back-to-back 310s to win, while Madison Memorial

One goal down, several to go. A first-half goal by fresh- man Jen Brien was the only offense the Oregon girls soccer team needed Mon- day, as the Panthers shut out Madison Edgewood 1-0 and clinched its second straight Badger South Conference title. Freshman midfielder Tay- lor Martin collected the assist on the goal in the 17th minute, and the Oregon defense did the rest, holding the Crusaders to just one shot on goal. Senior goalie Brit Peck- ham was able to save that

The Oregon softball team’s struggles to put the bat on the ball continued last Friday at Taylor Prairie Elementary school in Cottage Grove as the team was nearly no-hit once again in a game-short- ened 10-0 loss to Monona Grove. Silver Eagles freshman ace Kelsey Stinson held Oregon to one hit over five innings, striking out eight.

Hailey Morey took the loss for the Panthers, allowing six earned runs on seven hits in 2 1/3. Mackenzie Kressin worked the final 1 1/3, giving up four runs on six hits. Oregon found out its seed for the WIAA postseason on Wednesday – after the Observer went to press. The Panthers (1-13 overall, 1-10 conference) expect to open the playoffs on the road.

The two then joined the 4x400 along with freshman Maddie LeBrun and senior Danielle Steinberg to win in

4:09.21.

Girls head coach Kathy Mentink said the 4x400 title was an exclamation point on the night. “It is always a fun race to watch,” she said. “Those girls are the cheerleaders on the team and are setting examples of how to work hard and race hard.” The runners of the 4x4 added a few other top fin- ishes at the meet. Wood took second in the 200 (26.7) and second in the long jump (16-5), while Jones was third in the high jump (4-10) and fourth in the mile (5:30.71).

Steinberg added a third in the mile (5:30.38), was tied for fifth in the high jump (4-8) and took seventh in the 800 (2:33.94). LeBrun was fourth in the

Slow start dooms Panthers in home dual against Edgewood

Jeremy JoneS

Sports editor

“Now we’ll have to get them at confer- ence.” That was the message Oregon boys tennis coach Ben Conklin kept trying to reinforce to his players Monday eve- ning following a 5-2 loss at home against Badger South Conference rival Madison Edgewood. “We were counting on 1, 2 and 3 sin- gles for wins, but it just didn’t happen,” Conklin said. “I think we can get them there at conference. That’s our theme.” While the Crusaders have had a stran- glehold on the conference ever since Verona left for the Big Eight five years ago, Conklin and the Panthers finally thought this was their season. Following Monday’s loss, in which Oregon was only able to pick up wins at No. 1 singles and No. 3 doubles, the Pan- thers will have to outperform Madison Edgewood at conference on Friday and Saturday. Junior Jackson Schneider cruised to

a first-set victory, but Edgewood’s Pat- rick McKenna proved to be anything but easy to put away, dragging the match into three sets. “It was frustrating that we couldn’t get the team win tonight because that’s what we said our goal was all season,” said Schneider, who fought back to win 6-1,

6-7 (7), 7-5. “I was really frustrated after being so close in that second set. I knew

I had to slow down, play a little bit and I

was glad I could pull it off.” From a personal standpoint, Schneider knew the win was big for seeding after he had already lost to Waunakee, Fort Atkinson and Monroe. “I know I can dig deep and get the job done late,” Schneider said of his expecta- tions when the Panthers travel to Nielsen Tennis Stadium this Friday and Saturday

Number 1 singles player Jackson Schneider returns a shot against Madison Edgewood’s Patrick McKenna on Monday. Schneider fought back for a 6-1, 6-7 (7), 7-5 win, but Oregon lost 5-2.

for the Badger Conference tournament. “I’m not going be seeded as high as I want to. I’m going to have to pull through in matches sooner.” Jackson Wilhelm and Brady Behrend were the only other spot where the Pan- thers picked up a win Monday, taking their No. 3 doubles match 3-6, 6-4, 6-4. Seniors Adam Bessemer and Alex- ander Nasserjah also forced a third set, but lost 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 at 2 doubles. Junior Alec Onesti dropped a rare No. 2 sin- gles match, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 against Billy O’Brien.

Memorial 4, Oregon 3

The Panthers looked to be in prime position to knock off host Madison Memorial last Wednesday after sweep- ing the top three singles spots. Oregon struggled to sneak out a vic- tory at the other four flights, however, falling 4-3. Despite forcing a third set in a decisive No. 1 doubles match between seniors Brian Johnson and Nick Hepner and the Spartans’ team of William Xiang and Jamy Dennis, the Panthers lost the match 6-1, 4-6, 6-2. Schneider, Onesti and Dakota Tollak- son cruised to wins at No. 1 through 3

singles. Schneider nearly blanked Memo-

rial’s Andrew Liu, 6-0, 6-1, while Onesti cruised, 6-1, 6-1, over Chris Diaczun at

2 singles. Tollakson capped the evening with a 6-4, 6-0 win over Connor Koval. Oregon’s JV team fell 5-2.

Oregon 6, Milton 1

Oregon fell one match shy of the sweep Friday in Milton, rolling 6-1 against the conference rival Red Hawks. Onesti and Tollakson breezed through their No. 2 and 3 singles matches, 6-0, 6-1, and 6-2, 6-2, respectively. Schneider faced by far the toughest singles match of the evening in taking Ken Yap to three sets, where he finally wore down his Red Hawk opponent, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. Drew Christofferson, meanwhile, con- tinued to improve at 4 singles since mak- ing the move from 3 doubles a couple weeks ago, winning 7-5, 6-1 against Sam Miller. Johnson and Hepner took their No. 1 doubles match 6-2, 6-2, while Behrend and Wilhelm continued to click after a first-set hiccup, wining 1-6, 6-1, 6-4. Nasserjah and Bessemer lost a highly- competitive No. 2 doubles match, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4.

Oregon 7, Reedsburg 0

Oregon took out its frustrations after its loss to Edgewood, blanking Reedsburg 7-0 in a Badger Conference crossover dual. Schneider and Tollakson both cruised 6-0, 6-0, while Onesti won 6-1, 6-0 at 2 singles. Christofferson capped the single sweep 6-1, 6-3 at 4 singles. Johnson and Hepner took their No.

1 doubles match by a score of 6-1, 6-2, while Nasserjah and Bessemer rolled 6-2, 6-2 at 2 doubles and Wilhelm and Beh- rend took their 3 dubs match, 6-1, 6-0.

shot a 318 and a 305 to take second. Middleton was third with a 317 and a 319, and Waunakee took fifth with a

320 and a 334.

Oregon shot a 337 and a

330 to finish seventh.

Do not forget Sauk Prairie, which shot a 317 at its season finale at the Reedsburg Invi- tational at Reedsburg Coun- try Club, and Stoughton, which has scored below 320 several times this season. Based on those scores, Oregon needs to drop 10-15 strokes to be in contention. Individually, if Oregon doesn’t make it as a team, the challenge is just as diffi- cult. The primary opponents would be from Stoughton, Sauk Prairie or Waunakee. Oregon sophomore Car- son Torhorst, freshman Grant O’Donnell and sophomore Collin Bundy all shot 81s on the first day of the Shootout and have been around that number all year. Torhorst and O’Donnell have a few rounds in the upper 70s as well. Sauk Prairie’s finale fea- tured RJ Budd, who shot a 70, and Jack Rauner, who shot a 79. Sauk Prairie also has Darrin Pulsfus and Ben Baker who shot in the mid- to-low 80s at the meet. Waunakee has Max Mur- phy, with a low round of 72 at the Morgan Stanley Shoot-

out, and Kyle Connors, with

a low round of 79. No. 1

Warriors’ golfer Devin Lynse shot in the low 80s both days. Stoughton senior Henry Klongland, who has shot from the low 70s to the upper 60s all year, junior Max

Fergus, who has averaged in

the low 80s, and seniors Kip Nielsen and Anders Tiffany, shooting in the mid-to-low 80s most of the season, are also contenders. So based on statistics, no one is really guaranteed

a berth, but Torhorst and

O’Donnell both look to have a shot, Cowan said last week.

want to do, that it will cost our young teachers money,” he said. But new board member Dan Krause – who, with Rae Vogeler, bested two incumbents in the April 2 election – shot back that the district was using “scare tactics” to balance the bud- get on the backs of teachers. Krause said that over the past three years, too much has been taken from “the pockets of teachers and school employees. That’s the wrong place to look for the money it costs to edu- cate our kids.”

Teachers in the audience applauded that line and the eventual vote by Krause, Jeff Ramin, Wayne Mix- dorf and Rae Vogeler to table the motion. Vogeler said the deduct- ible hike amounted to a pay decrease for teachers and argued that the board need- ed more time to mull such a momentous decision. Krause also suggested the board dip into its reserve fund or hold a referendum asking residents to pony up more in taxes for the esca- lating costs of education. Both suggestions stirred opposition.

And board member Lee Chris- tensen said dipping into district reserves is a “bad practice” that would set up problems down the road. “Do you want to start (the next budget cycle) four or five hundred thousand dol- lars in the hole?” he asked.

Deficit looms

District officials have been worrying for months

about a bleak 2013-14 bud- get picture that forecasts

a $1 million deficit even

without staff salary increas- es. Complicating matters is a state budget plan from Gov. Scott Walker that freezes districts’ spending limits.

If those limits are increased

– as many legislators have

called for – Oregon’s short- fall could be reduced by $380,000 or more. But meanwhile, rates from the district’s health insurance plans, Unity and Dean, are set to skyrocket 16 percent next year. That

prompted a district commit-

tee last fall to investigate options. The committee – which included several staff mem- bers but no union represen- tatives – concluded that it didn’t want to change insur- ance plans this late in the

year and decided that sav- ings from the new deduct- ibles should go toward wage increases, explained district human resources director Jina Jonen. About 70 percent of staff receive health insurance through the district. Monday’s postponement could carry a cost. The district hoped to wrap up the new health insurance contracts by the end of the month, with the changes taking effect July 1. If changes are pushed back a month or two, district sav- ings could decline. Each extra month, theoretically, could cost one-twelfth of the $850,000 increase, though superintendent Brian Busler on Tuesday

As of Tuesday, Busler said any decision on health insurance is still “up in the air.” No new meetings have been set, though he thinks the board will “regroup” and find a solution. (A sep- arate motion Monday by Vogeler to start a new com- mittee to study the issue was voted down, 5-2, with Krause and Vogeler voting yes.) Asked if “doing nothing” could force the district to lay off employees, Busler said that’s “an absolute last resort” and that he believes a solution will arise first. “I believe there’s a solu- tion out there and we will find that solution,” he said.

Union option

Leaders of the local teachers’ union on Mon- day called for the district to reimburse part of the deductibles so staff would pay $200 annually for indi- viduals and $400 for fami- lies. Officials indicated they weren’t certain if that was a viable option. In a May 10 letter to the board, union president Jon Fishwild chastised officials for asking teachers to swal- low the $850,000 premium increases “with no guaran- tee that any of those savings will go back to the employ- ees in the form of increased wages.” Teachers’ wages have been frozen for three years, he said, and their take- home pay has dipped after a 2011 state law – commonly known as Act 10 – forced them to pay roughly 6 per- cent of their annual pension contribution. “I have young teachers saying, ‘How am I sup- posed to get ahead, when I’m only going backwards?’ If they are taking health insurance with this district, they have just gone back- wards, big time, if this pass- es.” Moreover, he later said that teachers for years accepted smaller wage increases in exchange for good health benefits. This plan jeopardizes those gains, he said. He also aired concerns that the district’s reserve fund has grown at a time when staff compensa- tion has dwindled. Busi- ness manager Andy Wei- land countered Fishwild’s contention, however, and offered to meet with Fish- wild – or anyone else – to explain the details. Monday’s dispute over health care comes after months of tense interactions between the union and dis- trict leaders. Staff last fall were offered a 2.75 percent wage increase retroactive to last July. Negotiations remain stalled, however, as the union has asked to negoti- ate issues other than wages, something prohibited under Act 10, which is facing legal challenges. A second mediation session between both sides has been tenta- tively slated for later this month.

Paul Shedivy

Paul J. Shedivy passed away peacefully on Nov. 3,

2012 from congestive heart

failure, just three weeks

after his 91st birthday and 69th wedding anniversary. Paul was born on Oct. 12,

1921 in Two Rivers, to Car-

olyn (Stangel) and Adolf Shedivy. When he was 2 years old, his mother died during surgery, so Paul and brothers Archie and Melvin went to live with three sep- arate families, while Addy and Marcy continued to live with their father. Paul’s father changed careers from policeman to tavern keeper in order to spend more time with his family, although he died when Paul was 9. Paul was raised lovingly by Aunt Anna and Uncle Rudy Pru- cha, whose children Butch, Helen, Gladys, and Roger became sisters and broth- ers to Paul in addition to his original siblings. Paul con- tinued to have close bonds with all of his siblings and their families. Family was important to him. Paul graduated from Two Rivers High School in 1939. He was a talented athlete, excelling in track, and basketball. He played competitive basketball for the Air Force. He played community league softball through his 60’s and man- aged a community softball team in Whitefish Bay, WI until age 70. He was a big fan of the Packers, Brewers, Bucks, and Badgers. At 21, Paul ventured west on Route 66 to attend tech- nical school in California. Soon Mildred Ouradnik (from Kewaunee) joined him and they roomed in houses across the street from each other. Together they rode their bicycles seven miles to work the swing shift at Lockheed Aircraft Company in Bur- bank, where Lockheed was producing the Constellation aircraft. Paul and Mildred took a bus to Las Vegas to be married in a Catholic Mass on Paul’s 22nd birth- day in 1943. Soon, Paul joined the U.S. Air Force, where he spent two years in Officer Candidate School and Navigation School. He served in Okinawa follow- ing WWII and later flew many bombing missions over Korea. Much later, while stationed in England and France, he flew recon- naissance flights over East Germany. During his 20- year career in the Air Force, Paul moved Mildred to Glendale, CA; Itazuke, Japan; Shreveport, LA; Tucseon, AZ; San Antonio, TX; Orlando, FL; Wichita, KS; Chelveston, England; Toul-Rosieres, France; and Sacramento, CA. Four children were born along the way. When Paul retired from the Air Force in 1964, the family moved back to their Wisconsin roots, set- tling in Whitefish Bay. He started his second career as a stock broker for the Mil- waukee Company, then Robert W. Baird Co. where he retired in 1999 at age 78. One of Paul’s greatest sources of pride was pro- viding a college education for each of his children. He encouraged them to work hard and follow their dreams. He was a great

with Mil - dred. He loved visiting extended family members and friends. He loved cod- dling his grand children. He loved fishing, hunting, playing cards, watching his favorite sports, hearing a good joke, and drinking a cold beer. Paul was an eter- nal optimist, a stable pres- ence, a kind soul, an honor- able gentleman, a patriot. Paul and Mildred moved to Oregon, in July 2004 to live near their daugh- ters. Unfortunately, that December he suffered a brain injury when knocked to the pavement at a pedes- trian crosswalk by a motor- ist following an Oregon High School basketball game. Surrendering his driver’s license because of the brain injury hurt him deeply. Through physical, occupational, and speech therapies, he regained some of his abilities. Paul gra- ciously accepted help from his children as needed. He appreciated rides to the Oregon Senior Center for exercise classes, bridge games, sheepshead, and special events. He enjoyed the company of Romeo, the cat, and the 2 shihtzus, Har-

ley and Shadow. He ben- efitted from the services of Agrace Hospice. On May 19, 2012, Paul was accom- panied by his daughter, Susan, on the Badger Honor Flight to Washington D.C., truly an uplifting experi- ence for him. Paul is survived by his wife, Mildred (Millie); his children Jane Sheffy, Susan, Paul (Sandy) and Steve Shedivy; his eight grandchildren, Sara Shef- fy (Jon) Hawkins, John

(Holly) Sheffy, Kelly (Chris) Calvelli, Dan, Pete, Ali, Maddy, and Walker Shedivy; his four great- grandchildren, Sienna and William Calvelli, Eli Hawkins and Indigo Shef- fy; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; his Aunt Anna and Uncle Rudy Prucha; his sister, Marcella (Al) Gospodarek; and his brothers, Adolph, Archie (Ann), and Melvin (Gert and Jo). Funeral services were held Nov. 10, 2013 at Holy Mother of Consolation Church, Oregon.

Mildred Shedivy

Mildred M. Shedivy, age 93, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 5, 2013, from Alzheimer’s Disease. Mildred was born on Jan. 8, 1920, near Kewaunee, to Katherine Rose (Boushek)

and Joseph W. Ouradnik. A m e r i c a n - b o r n a n d raised, Rose and Joe taught their children to speak Bohemian as a second lan- guage. Mildred was the third of seven children. Her mother operated a country store, grew a huge vegetable garden, baked bread, canned, butchered her own chickens, and was

a caretaker for the Rosebud School across the street. Mildred’s father operated

a cheese factory and later

became a night watchman for the Leyse Aluminum Company in Kewaunee. Mildred’s childhood home had no indoor bath- room, and the drinking water needed to be carried in a pail from an outdoor well and pump. Mildred would walk two miles for catechism class in Slovan. She attended the one-room Rosebud School through eighth grade and graduated from Casco High School in 1938. She attended two years of Business College in Two Rivers. As a working girl at Hamilton Manufacturing Co. in Two Rivers, Mildred met Paul Shedivy at a dance at the Waverly Hotel. Paul wooed her and won her love. After Paul drove west with a buddy on Route 66 to California for technical school, Mildred informed her employer that she too would be leaving for Cali- fornia. Her kind employ- er told her to rethink this decision, as jobs were hard

When Paul retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1964, the family moved back to their Wisconsin roots, set- tling in Whitefish Bay, where Paul started his sec- ond career as a stock broker and Mildred kept the home- fires burning. “Grandma Millie” was a great cook, preparing everything from

common meatloaf to Bohe- mian dishes and Japanese sukiyaki; she was especial-

ly known for her rotisserie chicken and sweet and sour cabbage. She served a hot family meal every night. She had a great sense of humor. She enjoyed gar- dening, dancing, and cards. She taught her children to be healthy, responsible, respectful and resourceful, and to have an interest and excitement about the world and about learning. It is no wonder that three of four children became teachers. She inspired her children to do well in school, insist- ing that they do their home- work each night instead of washing the dinner dishes. She typed several lengthy college papers for daugh- ter, Susan. She babysat her grandchildren and pro- vided loyal assistance to her elderly neighbors, Julia and Violet Maves. Mildred and Paul moved to Oregon, Wisc., in July 2004 to live near their daughters. Mil- dred frequented the Oregon Senior Center for exercise classes and special events. She enjoyed the company

New board members make mark

seth Jovaag

Unified Newspaper Group

Any doubts that April’s election changed how the Oregon School Board oper- ates were erased in about five minutes Monday. New members Rae Vogel- er and Dan Krause, who easi- ly topped two incumbents on the April 2 ballot, came out firing Monday and rarely let up during the nearly 5-hour meeting, which board presi- dent Courtney Odorico said was the longest in her 9-year tenure. The newcomers began the meeting by voting not to approve the agenda – a pro- cedural step that’s rarely, if ever, challenged. Each ques- tioned whether certain agenda items were properly worded to let the public know what the board was to discuss. By meeting’s end, they’d helped shoot down a com- mittee’s recommendation to increase health care costs for staff, revisited a controver- sial 2012 board decision that made it easier to discipline or terminate teachers and lob- bied for giving the teachers’ union more of a voice in dis- trict decisions. As candidates, both cam- paigned on similar issues and had union backing. Krause noted they each won the elec- tion “fairly handily,” which he saw as a reason to push for changes. “The key is the teachers,” Krause said. “Let’s start treat- ing the teachers like they are special. They’ve sacrificed a lot for this district over the last three years.” Specifically, Krause requested data supporting a

move last year that allowed the district to discipline, fire or not renew a teacher’s con- tract so long as its decision was deemed “good and suf- ficient,” a legal standard less stringent than the former “just cause” standard. As a resident, Krause spoke out last year about keep- ing “just cause.” As a board member, he said he wanted to “keep (the issue) on the table” and verify board claims last year that the higher standard had driven up legal costs. Superintendent Brian Busler told Krause he would share that information with the board in closed session later that night because it con- tained personal information. Attempts to reach Krause Tuesday were unsuccessful. Likewise, Vogeler was vocal Monday, particularly during the debate over health insurance costs. For example, she succeeded – after about a half-dozen attempts – in get- ting OEA president Jon Fish- wild to speak to the board about a May 10 letter he wrote criticizing the proposed changes. Vogeler also thanked teachers and residents who criticized the board during the public comment portion of the meeting. In an exchange after that statement, Odorico said that, as the meeting’s chair, Vogeler should “ask (me) at the appropriate time” before making such state- ments. “I know that that was appropriate by public meet- ing law, so thank you very much, but I will ask in the future,” Vogeler said.
