Lake Holcombe Town Board

Board members see an increase in salaries,

updated winter parking ordinance violations
By Ginna Young
At a Lake Holcombe Town Board public meeting prior to
the regular meeting Dec. 11, members voted to raise board
salaries. Amounts are determined by population and equalized value.
The chairmans salary was raised from $3,960 to $5,100;
supervisor, $2,390 to $3,000; clerk, $9,024 to $10,500; and
treasurer, $4,200 to $5,100.
I think the salary I get is low, said Chairman Robert
Bayerl, and I think for the next person coming up, an average of $5,100 is kind of a middle of the road suggestion.
During the regular meeting, the board heard an update on
the Wayside Park addition thats been discussed with
Chippewa County.
I talked to a county board member and his feelings are
the committee wants nothing to do with it at this time, said
Supervisor John Bell.
The board intended to buy the property to expand the current park.
Personally, I would sooner it be made into something like
a park, not be a residential development, said Bayerl. I
think we need to make sure we get our chance to express
our feelings that its put into a park situation. Its just going
to take a little more time.
Also on the agenda, the winter parking ordinance received
an update from the board. If a fine for a vehicle left on the
street goes unpaid, the owner will be given two warnings,

after which time, the matter will be turned over to the DMV
and the vehicles registration will be suspended.
What this is going to do now, Bayerl said, is the person
who gets the parking ticket or fine, is going to also get a
statement along with it saying if you dont pay for this, this
is whats going to happen.
On recommendation of Bruce Jones, Lake Holcombe
roadman, the board voted to purchase a Boss snowplow for
$5,391 from Monroe Truck Equipment in Marshfield. To
save the town money, Jones will install the plow himself on
the small city pick-up truck.
Last year there were a few things that came to our attention about our equipment, said Bayerl. Our big truck is
too big for alleys and cul de sacs. The board feels if we have
a smaller rig and the truck to mount it on, itll work very
In addition to setting the Jan. 20 caucus for the town board
and constable positions, Bayerl, Bell and Supervisor Barry
Hoke officially filed their non-candidacy papers. Bayerl has
served on the town board for 20 years, Bell for at least 12
years and Hoke has served about 10 years.
The people here have treated me very well and Im not
unhappy with the experience, Bayerl said, but its time for
someone else to step up to the plate and do it, and I think
thats how John and Barry feel, too. Weve had a good working team, and weve gotten the job done pretty nicely. Im
pleased with the accomplishments weve made in the town.

Cadott Village Board

Village approves go ahead for business permit,

explores option of park surveillance cameras
By Ginna Young
The Cadott Village Board met for its regular meeting Dec.
15, where members approved the go ahead for a conditional
use permit in a B-2 Highway Commercial District. The matter will be open for a public hearing Jan. 5.
Ryan Irish and Kurt Prosecky intend to open KXR Motors,
at 109 South Highway 27 in Cadott, sometime in March.
The business will provide sales, service and repair of cars,
trucks and power sports vehicles, and a retail store of parts
and accessories.
Anytime we get business in Cadott, its a good thing,
said Randy Kuehni.
Also on the agenda, the board heard a Lions Club proposal
for a Riverview Park project from board and Cadott Lions
Club member Terry Licht.
Members of the Lions Club obviously expressed a concern with whats been going on at the lower park, said
Licht. The Lions Club is willing to come forth with some
dollars, basically for the purchase of cameras if the village
would like to put some up in the park for surveillance purposes.

The suggestion for surveillance comes after vandals once

again damaged holiday decorations at Riverview Park in
Cadott. This year alone, the Chamber of Commerce has incurred approximately $150 of damage since the first of November.
The proposal was referred to the Park Committee and law
enforcement officials to explore options for security measures at the park.
The board also agreed to open the yard waste site for
Christmas tree and bough disposal Monday, Jan. 12, 7:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. No artificial trees will be accepted, and all
tinsel, plastic, decorations and wires must be removed before disposal.
Board President Anson Albarado informed members the
Village of Cadott received a congratulatory letter from an
RN/public nurse, to Cadott businesses on not selling tobacco
to minors. The letter comes after underage teens posed as
buyers in an attempt to purchase cigarettes from DJs Mart,
Dollar General, Last Call and Country Plaza.
We congratulate them for keeping tobacco products out
of the hands of our youth, Albarado said.

He who buys the most doesnt win, but he who donates the most does
By Monique Westaby
Managing Editor
Its that time of year
when we think about giving; when those extra pennies are scrimped and
saved to buy that perfect
gift for that special someone. The lights are hung, the tree is decorated
and the fridge is ever filling with food for
Christmas Day.
Youve taken the afternoon off to finish up
your last minute shopping and your wallet is
slowly reaching its last few dollars. Do you
get the extra tie for great uncle Bill? Or
should you use your change for another
knick knack for aunt Barb? What about your
distant cousin Phil who shows up every year
to guzzle down the eggnog? Does he need
Well, two local girls have challenged the
community to use those extra pennies to give
back to someone who might not have crossed
their mind. Kayla Peche and Ginna Young
have implemented a diaper drive during December, and what better way to give this holiday season?
With 65 percent of elementary students on
free or reduced lunch in Cornell, and 56 percent of elementary students on free or reduced lunch in Lake Holcombe, its obvious
the communities are struggling to make ends
Food and clothing are the logical thoughts
of things to donate to the local food pantries,
but have you thought of diapers? Ann Sonderegger, with the Cornell Food Pantry, says
there are several families who visit the organization with newborns.
Diapers can range anywhere from $5.97
for 42, to $47.17 for 174, or more depending
on brands. On average, until potty trained,

children go through about eight diapers a

day, at minimum. This means even the
cheapest pack of diapers will only last five
days, if even.
And thats if you want to use the cheapest
brand out there. Most likely youll get what
you pay for in diapers, and end up spending
twice the amount you would have by going
with the cheap ones.
Other studies suggest parents will spend
about $100 a month on diapers. In Wisconsin, the federal nutrition program for women,
infants and children (WIC) does not include
diapers, according to juniorleague-ec.org.
The site also says there is no federal social
safety net program that includes the purchase
of diapers.
In Cadott, where 42 percent of elementary
students are on free or reduced lunch, at least
half a dozen families who visit the pantry are
in need of diapers.
With an estimated 13.42 births per 1,000
people, this year in the Cadott, Cornell,Lake

presents for uncle Joe.

Kayla and Ginna have set up drop off locations at the Courier Sentinel offices in Cornell and Cadott, and both locations have
already received several donations from
community members.
Diaper or monetary donations are welcome, and everything received will be split
between the Cadott and Cornell food
pantries. Because the Lake Holcombe Food
Pantry has limited storage space, diaper donations to Lake Holcombe will be based on
available room.
The Cadott and Cornell Courier Sentinel
offices open Monday through Friday at 8:30
a.m., with the Cornell office closing at 5
p.m., and the Cadott office closing at 3:30
If you want to donate, but are unable to
meet any of those times, or are unable to drop
off donations, feel free to call Kayla or Ginna
at 715-239-6688 to make other arrangements
for your generosity.

What is your limit on Christmas gifts?

By Heather Dekan
How much is enough
or too much to spend on
a child for Christmas?
Thats a question Iran
across while looking on
my Facebook news feed
one day. Iwas very curious as to what people answered, as Ialways
wonder the same thing.
A couple of people answered $200, one
said $450 and my favorite was the one who
commented that more family time and less
presents was more important.

were born.
National statistics suggest 50 percent of
newborns are eligible for WIC, and averaging the schools free or reduced elementary
lunch percentages (54 percent), its safe to
say about 30 area families will need help in
one way or another with their child.
So why not take that extra money you
would have spent on yourself, or to get another present for someone who doesnt need
it, and pick up some diapers to donate?
Even if you dont have enough to buy an
entire pack, ask a friend to go in on one with
you. Or, make a monetary donation to the
pantry. Any little bit you can give will help a
neighbor in need.
You dont need to buy the best, biggest or
the most expensive gift. Sometimes the
smallest gesture will make a persons day
over the holiday season. And believe me,
youll feel better knowing you helped someone in need, rather than bought the most

search Group, shoppers say they plan to

spend an average of $861 on gifts this season, up 8 percent from last year.
As Iwrite this, there are 10 days left until
Christmas and I am only about half done
with my Christmas shopping. Idont keep
track of what Ispend until its all over. Ikeep
all my receipts and add them up after Christmas is over so Ihave an idea of what Ispent.
Iasked the kids to start writing their
Christmas lists about the beginning of November. I received three lists with about five
things on each, and they were mostly very
expensive items. Not to my surprise, on the
top of all three lists was an iPod, which they
have been asking for for the past two years.
I did get them a tablet last Christmas, hoping that would fill that iPod want, but apparently it did not. I dont understand why
because the tablet does the same things, except hold an insane amount of music. So I
bought each of the girls an MP3 player, so
they had the best of both worlds. Iguess that
didnt work either.
As Iwas typing up the Santa letters that are
featured in The Courier Sentinel this week, I
was in awe at what some of these elementary
kids asked for. An iPod was asked for most,
but there were a few who asked for the simplest of things, like a notebook, hat or shirt.
It made me ask myself if Ihad spoiled my
kids to the point where all they wanted were
the fancy, very expensive things for Christmas. Would they even appreciate the smaller
things they will receive, not only from me,
but Santa and other family members? Im
sure hoping so, otherwise I have some damage control to do.
As I sit here and think about it, I remember
my oldest daughter coming to me a few

weeks ago and telling me she wanted to donate some of the presents she gets to children
who dont get anything for Christmas. My
heart completely melted and Ihad tears in
my eyes. Anyone who really knows me,
knows it takes a lot for me to even come
close to crying. (Iblame it on my bloodline,
we are all a bunch of stubborn old mules.)
So as Iplan on trying to finish up most of
my Christmas shopping this weekend, Iwill
keep these things in the back of my mind. Of
course Iam going to get my kids some of the
things they asked for because I love the excitement in their faces and happiness in their
eyes Christmas morning when they rip that
paper off the packages. But at the same time,
Iwant to make sure they appreciate what
they get, even if its a pack of new socks.
Too many parents strive to give their children whatever they want to make them happy
and, in turn, the childs appreciation level
plummets. As parents, we need to instill in
our children to be happy with what they have
and realize these spendy electronics, or
whatever they have on their lists, isnt what
makes the holidays.
Christmas is about spending time with
family, being thankful for what we have, and
not getting disappointed over unnecessary
things we may not get.
In the end, Idont think there is a right or
wrong price tag that should determine what
should be spent on Christmas. As long as the
receiving person appreciates what they are
given, thats the winning answer.
Imay have splurged a little on one big gift
for my kids, and all Im thinking to myself is
they better be happy with it otherwise, they
are all getting nothing but underwear next

Lake Holcombe School

Ranger Jesse, from the Homestead National Monument inNebraska, visits Lake Holcombe After School
students for a virtual field trip via Polycom. Jesse told students he had a time machine, and planned to
take students back to 1872 so they could see what a day in the life of a student was like during that time.
Jesse said students days started much earlier, and included morning chores, walking to school and
evening chores. Students seemed surprised when Jesse told them schools were made out of flowers
(sod) in that time inNebraska, and that punishment included dunce hats, putting their nose to the chalkboard, or even a swat on the wrist or back with a ruler. At the end of the trip, one student asked if they
were really going back to 1872, then wiped his brow and sighed with a phew of relief when Jesse said
the time machine was only imaginary.

Public asked for help with

hit and run identification
The Chippewa County Sheriffs Office is asking for the
publics help in locating the driver of a vehicle that struck a
17-year-old female.
The incident happened around 6:30 p.m., Dec. 9, in the
roundabout of County Highway X and County Highway J
in the Lake Wissota area.
A press release from the department says the pedestrian
was crossing the road when she was struck. Witnesses described the vehicle as a smaller white pickup truck, occupied
by a male driver and female passenger.
The male driver was described as 20-30 years old with a
beard and dark hair. The driver did stop and help the pedestrian off the roadway before leaving the scene, and the injured pedestrian was treated and released from a local
If you have any information on this case, contact Lt. Mitch
Gibson at the Chippewa County Sheriffs office, 715-7267826. Information can also be shared by using the online tipster at co.chippewa.wi.us/government/sheriff.

From The Professional

Insurance Agents of Wisconsin
The holiday season can be incredibly busy with gifts to
buy, homes to decorate and parties to plan. In Wisconsin,
those parties include plenty of fun, food and beverages.
While no one wants to think the worst during the holidays,
the statistics are sobering. In 2012, 33,579 people were arrested for Operating While Intoxicated, including 385 people
under the age of 18. According to the Wisconsin DOT, alcohol-related crashes killed 223 people and injured nearly
3,000 in 2012.
In addition, approximately 36 percent of all fatal traffic
crashes, and 33 percent of all fatal motorcycle crashes, in
Wisconsin, in 2012 were alcohol-related.
As a party host, you are responsible for your guests behavior, said Ron Von Haden, CIC, executive vice president
of the Professional Insurance Agents of Wisconsin (PIAW).
Before your next party, review your homeowners or renters
insurance with your professional independent agent to ensure that you are properly covered for property damage and
personal liability.
Be sure your policy doesnt exclude incidents that arise
from serving alcohol. Depending on your situation, you
might also consider adding a personal liability umbrella policy for additional coverage. Your professional independent
agent can help you determine whether or not this is necessary.
The PIAW recommends if you choose to serve alcohol,

stay sober so you are aware of your guests condition. Dont

serve guests if theyve had too much to drink, and make sure
everyone has a designated driver. Be sure to have food to
munch on and stop serving alcohol at least one hour before
the end of the party.
Companies can also be held liable when they host parties
where alcohol is served, says Von Haden.
To limit their liability at events where alcohol is served,
the PIAW says, companies should:
Monitor alcohol consumption; dont have an unsupervised bar. Hire professional bartenders and issue a small
quantity of drink tickets for each guest. After that, make
guests pay for their drinks. Offer a wide selection of non-alcoholic drinks. Be sure there is food to munch on. Close the
bar at least an hour before the event ends.
Determine whether guests are intoxicated; make reasonable assumptions about whether a guest is impaired based
on how many drinks he/shes had.
Prevent intoxicated guests from driving; adopt a zero tolerance policy for drinking and driving. Have a list of designated drivers you can call for each employee if they have
had too much, or supply vans or cabs to give guests a ride
As a final tip, the PIAW recommends reminding everyone
to wear their seatbelts on the way home.

Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
The Chippewa County Highway Department would like to
remind everyone that it is not only dangerous, but unlawful
to plow or push snow onto, or across, a public highway. Section 346.94(5), Wisconsin Statutes prohibits this action.
Snow left in ridges or piles on the highway creates a hazard
for vehicles. Snow piled on the shoulders may also create
problems for equipment during normal plowing operations
and increases the possibility of snow drifting across the highway in these areas.
We encourage your cooperation for the safety of all who
travel the Chippewa County road and highway system.

Dinner wasnt the only thing served at the Madrigal performance, as the quips
were many in number to entertain guests. The royal court made sure to include
the audience in the evening, and visited the tables during the main course of
pork and vegetables. Sharing a laugh while the servers ready the meal, left to
right, in front, are, Sir Robert (Bob Boller) and Marquessa Musicale (Rhonda
Matazcynski); in back, are, Archbishop Richard of St. Platteville (Rich EstremFuller), Gracious Queen Karen (Karen Stimeling) and Good King William (Bill

Although the royal court and select

guests who lent their sword arms prevailed over the strong and fearsome
pillagers from the north during the
Madrigal Dinner, junior pillager Brendan Anders frightened the court by
proclaiming that when he grew up, the
realm should beware.

Military News
Olson completes basic
Air Force Reserve Airman Alexis A. Olson, daughter of
Sherry L. and Andrew J. Olson, and 2014 graduate of Cadott
High School, graduated from basic military training at Joint
Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas.
Olson completed an eight-week program that includes
training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.
Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

The Madrigal performers serenaded visitors with an

array of Christmas songs, such as Gloucester Wassail, The Boars Head, Deck the Halls, Away in a
Manager and Silent Night. As the evening drew to a
close, Joseph (Lucas Hering) and Mary (Amber
Ross) presented a still-life image portraying the
birth of Jesus. In recognition of the advent season,
King William, who is known to be quite fond of his
crown, nonetheless laid it on the child in tribute to
the one true King.

Holcombe Happenings
By Janice Craig 715-595-4380
The Madrigal Dinner performance Saturday and Sunday
nights at the Holcombe United Methodist Church was sold
out and well attended in spite of the fog. Everyone enjoyed
the meal and tomfoolery.
The community has been saddened at the death of Don
Tiny Albrect who passed away last week. He and his wife,
Sharon, owned and operated Albrechts Cheese House for
many years. A summer day without stopping to get one of
their ice cream cones was not complete.
Many cheese packages were shipped out of their shop during the holidays. I personally shipped a package and asked
them to include a styrofoam snowball which I had provided
to a friend in Florida. He got a smile out of that.
Visitation and service were Tuesday beginning at 10 a.m.,
at the Holcombe United Methodist Church.
The Helping Hands Club will have their annual Christmas
Party at Giggles Bed and Breakfast Thursday beginning at
12:30 p.m. It has been beautifully decorated for the occasion
by owner Carol Severson.
Ramona Scharf attended the graduation of her granddaughter at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Sunday. She
graduated with highest honors. Congratulations, that is great

A number of people enjoyed the New York
steak at Crescent Tavern Sunday, Dec. 7.
There was a nice crowd that attended the
Nascar party Saturday afternoon at J&Js
Sports Bar and Grill on Highway X. In the
evening, they listened to D.J. Dave for entertainment.
A friend called me from Florida and we
had an enjoyable visit.
Friends and family attended the jr./senior
high band Christmas concert at Cadott High
School Dec. 8.
There were about a dozen or so ladies who
attended the Womans Club Christmas party
at Kathys Diner Tuesday afternoon and had
an enjoyable time.

Sure is really foggy, hope everyone is driving carefully.

Some of the churches are decorated pretty
for the Christmas season.
There are some nice decorations at the
homes in the area.

Hornets better with each passing game

By Kayla Peche
The Cadott Hornets Girls Basketball team had two conference competitors this week. The games were set to make or
break their West Cloverbelt Conference record quickly.
Dec. 9 vs. Altoona (Conference)
Cadott began their week with a loss against the Altoona
Railroads, 24-38, but Dave Hazuga, Cadott head coach, said
this was the best defense the girls have played.
We rebounded better and we covered the basket better,
Hazuga said, and our defense gave us a chance.
Sophomore Jessa Raether had six points to lead a balanced
scoring effort by the Hornets.
In a Dec. 4 game against Fall Creek, junior Tory Crank had
a knee injury that took her out of the last two games.
I probably wont play at all this week, Crank said. But

Cornell shoots for

more consistency
By Kayla Peche
The Cornell Chiefs Girls Basketball team jumped to an
early 10-6 lead after the first quarter, but Gilman rallied to
come from behind and top the Chiefs, 45-36.
It was the second half of the Dec. 15 game where the
Chiefs were outscored, 23-16, leading to the non-conference
Cornell Head Coach Marcus Leland says the team needs
to start becoming more consistent with the level of play.
Overall, we played pretty well, Leland said. We need
to clean up our mistakes.
Junior Elizabeth Sproul had a team-high 14 points for the
Chiefs, followed by seniors Kammey Kendall and Makenzie
Ewings, each with eight points.

Crank said the young team is still trying to figure out their
roles, but the main goal is to get better with every game.
As the year goes on, I am hoping people will become
more comfortable with each other, says Crank.
Dec. 12 vs. Regis (Conference)
Hazuga says the Hornets played their best first half of the
season against Regis, with a 22-39 halftime scoreboard.
We are starting to play better, Hazuga said. Our defense
and rebounding is getting better, and turnovers are still our
biggest problem that we need to continue to work on.
Cadott only scored seven additional points during the second half of the game, losing to Regis, 29-81.
Freshman Kallie Patrie led the Hornets with nine, followed
by junior Elizabeth Kyes with seven. Freshman Alexis
Kramer had six, senior Leah Pilgrim scored five and Kyla
Nichols, also a senior, added two.
Hazuga said that Kyes and Pilgrim were huge contributors
to the best first half.
Elizabeth is running our offense and getting better with
each game, Hazuga said. Leah has had a lot of responsibility having to guard the basket and really battled a lot of strong
The Hornets host their next game Dec. 18, against the Cornell Chiefs.

Girls stay aggressive until final buzzer

Sophomore Hannah Lee led Lake Holcombe with five
points, followed by senior Breanna Ducommun wth three.
Dec. 11 vs. Clear Lake (Non-Conference)
Lake Holcombe upped the intensity on defense against
Clear Lake, using a full court press in the first half.
Providing the Chieftains with some steals and also some
fouls, Lake Holcombe had a small lead, 19-16, to start the
third quarter.
Geist says the team was very aggressive, but needed to
score more points.
We just need to put the ball in the basket a few more
times, Geist said. A few more free
throws would have helped a lot. We
played tough defense, we hustled and we
played hard, weve just got to put the ball
in the basket.
By the fourth quarter, the Chieftains
trailed, 24-27, and found themselves in
foul trouble, with Jordan Geist and Sara
Stender, juniors, fouling out of the game.
Junior Kayla Vavra led the team with
10 points. Jordan Geist had nine points
and Stender scored six points before leaving the game in the last six seconds.
Coach Geist said he was still pleased
with a number of things in the loss. He
said the offense was able to handle the
Warriors defense and the team remained
aggressive until the final buzzer.
They are coming into their own, Geist
said. Theyre all brand new (to varsity)
basically so its still kind of a learning

The Lake Holcombe Chieftains Girls Basketball team
played two aggressive games this week. Jay Geist, Lake Holcombe head coach, said it was the little things that made the
biggest difference this week.
Dec. 9 vs. Bruce (Conference)
In an East Lakeland Conference game, the Chieftains had
a low scoring game against Bruce.
With a halftime score of 6-12, neither team dominated on
the board. Bruce used the third quarter to take the significant
lead to the end, and Lake Holcombe was defeated, 13-35.

Defensive breakdown hurts Lake

Holcombe in second half Dec. 11
By Kayla Peche
The Lake Holcombe Chieftains Boys Basketball team went
on a roller coaster ride this week. The team fell in their first
conference match up of the season, then gained a halftime
lead against Clear Lake, only to be brought back down in the
last seconds.
Dec. 9 vs. Bruce (conference)
The Chieftains traveled to Bruce for their first conference
game of the 2014-15 season, but were defeated by the Red
Raiders, 37-46.
Senior Jay Kent led the Chieftains with 10 points, followed
by junior Nick Seng with nine points and senior John Stender
Jr. with seven.
Dec. 11 vs. Clear Lake (non-conference)
Lake Holcombe had their ups and downs against Clear
Lake at home, leading 24-15 at the half but surrendering 38
second-half points. The Warriors defeated Lake Holcombe,
52-53, in the non-conference match.
I think we played a really disciplined first half, said Dave
Engel, Lake Holcombe head coach. Halfway through the
third quarter, we got flustered and broke down defensively.
Everything comes back to us defensively. If we break down
defensively, we break down just about everywhere.
Senior Jay Kent led Lake Holcombe with 15 points. Junior
Nick Seng followed with 14 points and senior John Stender
Jr. added 11 for the Chieftains.
Engel says there were breakdowns in the second half, but
communication was up and the Chieftains didnt allow themselves to give up despite the lead late in the game.
That comes with playing year round, Engel said of his
teams comfort level together. Over the last two years Ive
had this core group playing year round and theyve really put
in the time, that shows on the court. But with that, were still

Wolfpack wrestlers get

three podium finishes
By Kayla Peche
Over the weekend, the Cornell-Gilman-Lake Holcombe Wolfpack
Wrestling team traveled to Barron High School Dec. 13, for a tournament.
Even though the Wolfpack took eighth out of 10 teams, they had three individuals who were successful at making it to the podium.
Greg Sonnentag, Wolfpack head coach, said it was senior Spencer Gibsons
first match of the year. Gibson ended the weekend in first.
He started off strong by pinning his way through the tournament, Sonnentag said.
Senior Eric Nedland had a second place finish at Barron. Sonnentags says
Nedland had a tough opponent, Mitch Hustad from Osceola, and lost the hard
match, 10-5.
Takoda Lee, a sophomore, lost one match in his pool, finishing strong with
a pin over Barrons Ben Sinclair for third place.
The rest of the team took some bumps and bruises, Sonnentag said. But
most ended the day with some success.

and wrestlers did a great job, said Spaeth.

We have not had cheerleaders for over 10
years. It was nice to see cheerleaders in the
gym again.
Cole Hanson, senior, was given fast pin for
the evening, for his 51 second fall over Josh
Zupanc. Freshman Bailey Gillett earned best
takedown against Kyle Gurney, earning six
points for the team.
Best effort was awarded to Dominick
Grimm, sophomore, for his win over
Neillsville/Loyal/Greenwood wrestler Austin
Dominick wrestled a great match, said
Spaeth. He believed in himself and never
quit scoring points. He won his match with a
14-4 major decision.
Dec. 13 Eau Claire North Invitational
Coming off a 21st place finish last year,
the Hornets improved 14 places and earned
a seventh place title at the Eau Claire North
Invitational Dec. 13.
Our team goal this year is to improve
each and every match, and to never quit,
said Spaeth following the meet. Our
wrestlers have been doing this. Nice job
guys. Keep working hard.
Senior wrestler Austin Najbrt placed the
highest for the varsity team, taking home a
second place finish and earning best takedown. Gillett came in third, earning best effort at the Saturday invitational.
Bailey has been working very hard this
year, said Spaeth. His confidence is building and he is relentless on the mat.
Coming in fourth was senior Cole Hanson,
a 220 pound wrestler. Wyatt Cote, a 145
pound sophomore, was given fastest pin with
a 25 second win.
The JV team also placed well at the meet,
with sophomore Adam Shakal coming in
first, and Bennett Bowe, freshman, and Hayden Thompson, junior, both taking second.
Bowe also earned fastest pin, while Shakal
took best takedown and best effort for JV.
We still need 195 pound and heavyweight
wrestlers, says Spaeth. This would greatly
help the team improve even more. We have
capable athletes walking our halls.

Team Varsity

Cadott boys basketball earns

fourth quarter win at Falcons
By Kayla Peche
The Cadott Hornets Boys Basketball team came up short in a conference game Thursday
night, but then led the charge for a victory against Abbotsford.
Dec. 11 vs. Stanley-Boyd (conference)
The Hornets ended the game behind by three in Stanley, 47-50. Brandon Mittermeyer,
Cadott head coach, said the game was back and forth, but the substitutes did well, keeping
the Hornets in the game.
We had to claw back a few times, Mittermeyer said. Stanley shot the ball really well
and we didnt. We also dealt with some foul issues.
Senior Brett McChesney scored 24 points for Cadott and drilled five of Cadotts seven 3pointers, while his classmate, Ezra Michael, added 19 and the other two Hornet threes.
Dec. 12 vs. Abbotsford (non-conference)
Cadott pulled ahead of the Falcons for good after being tied, 34-34, entering the fourth
quarter. The Hornets outscored Abbotsford to secure the win, 49-40.
Mittermeyer says changing the defense in the second quarter really got them going.
Abby slowed us down with their style of play which limited our possessions, Mittermeyer
said. They forced us into shots that we didnt want to take. Fortunately, our defense was
able to pull this one out.
McChesney led the Hornets with 16 points, adding four of his teams nine 3-pointers. Junior
Shawn Sedlacek added three more 3-pointers, finishing with 11 points against the Falcons.

DNR Outdoor Report

Portions of northern Wisconsin have received an additional
2 to 3 inches of snow, but most of the state has seen diminishing snow levels.
Some counties in northern Wisconsin have open snowmobile trails, but with warmer temperatures and rain, trail conditions could change quickly.
The warm-up will likely lead to highly variable ice conditions. While smaller lakes in the northwoods have several
inches of ice, larger lakes or bodies of water are much harder
to predict.
Those ice anglers already out report sporadic walleye
catches, with some success for panfish and crappie. As always, notify others of your intent to fish and where you will
be, dont go alone and take a spud, throw rope and solid set
of ice picks.
Pheasant season remains open and select properties will

be stocked until near the end of the season Dec. 31.

The late turkey season also remains open in Zones 1-5
through the end of the month.
For those areas with snow cover, this is a great time to get
out and do some mammal tracking. DNR crews have found
deer, otter, beaver, fox, grouse, coyote and fisher tracks while
grooming trails in the northwoods.
Snowy owls continue to dominate the winter birding scene.
The statewide tally now stands at 127 birds, compared to 71
by this date last year.
Eagles have begun to show up in large numbers below the
Petenwell Dam on the Wisconsin River.
There is still quite a bit of open water on Lake Mendota,
Monona, Lower Mud Lake and along the Yahara River in
Dane County, with tundra swans easily viewable at many of
these locations.

An Outdoorsmans Journal By Mark Walters
The Red Brush Gang! The Best Stories of 2014
Hello friends,
We are wild, crazy, hunt harder than a lot of people I know
and seldom go to bed before 3 a.m. What I am talking about
is the deer camp my father, the late Robert Walters, started
in the late 50s in northern Juneau County and that well over
20 of us call home at some point during Wisconsins nineday deer gun season.
Tuesday, Nov. 25 High 26, Low 12
This part of the world received a horizontal snowstorm
yesterday that dumped 7 inches of snow and would make
deer hunting conditions brutal for several days.
Visibility in the woods and marshes was 5 feet to 100 yards
because of every tree and willow bush holding onto the snow.
The Red Brush Gang does deer drives the entire last seven
days of the season and, because the snow was often falling
onto our rifles, the actions on our rifles were freezing up and
often could only be thawed at the end of the day by our trucks
exhaust so we could unload them.
Today, my buddy, Doug Cibulka (who fished the same
stream as me when we were kids), and I were the only two
people in camp. Our plan was to check out some new country
that we had received a tip on that was in The Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, and adjacent to land we have hunted
for over 50 years.
In this situation, I was wearing hip boots, as was Doug; we
both carry packs and we walk away from the truck all day,
living by the compass. At dark, we work our way back to the
The snow and warm temperatures before the snowstorm
have created the worst problem of all the dreaded half
ice! Half ice sometimes supports the person walking on it,
and sometimes does not. This years added bonus is that the
water table is up in a big way so what is generally knee deep,
is waist deep.
Doug and I are walking 50 yards abreast of each other, and
hoping to kick up a buck so we can eat venison and look at
it on the buck pole.
Our adventure is maybe 20 minutes long when I take a

hard fall through the ice and fill my right hip boot. Ten minutes later I fall face first as Im going through the ice I am
Twenty minutes later and still working away from the
truck, I watch Doug go through the ice and even see his rifle
completely go underwater.
We love deer camp!
Friday, Nov. 28 High 34, Low 22
We number roughly 12 hunters today, ranging from the age
of 13 to 62. Our day is spent doing drives and, as usual, working away from the truck. It is 3:45 p.m. and we are setting up
our final drive of the day; it is a 1 mile square of marsh and
scrub oak forest.
We are running out of daylight and we must hurry. First,
13-year-old Dylan Walters misses a buck. Then, at least one
other buck is kicked up late in the drive. Daylight is fading,
shots are fired. I am the end driver and am exactly 3 miles
from the trucks. I see a rocket sailing over the marsh grass
its a buck. My first potential shot in seven days. I put a bullet
in the 5-pointer and one very physical drag back to the truck
The next two nights:
Travis Dushek brags about how much he loves deer heart
and shows everyone how much by kind of cooking my
bucks heart on the campfire. After a few minutes the bucks
heart erupts from Travs belly.
I hide parts of my humongous bucks anatomy in my 26year-old nephew Riley Schusters pillowcase. Riley catches
me and for no real reason attacks me. We wrestle and fall
onto Chris Grindes sleeping bag in a rather hard way. Chris
is in his sleeping bag and takes his new head injury well.
There are 12 kids between 19 and 26 in this camp. Many
of us hide in the woods after dark and throw snowballs at the
guys hanging around the campfire watching Trav consume
my monster bucks heart.
We have so much fun that I
think we will return next year!

Its a Girls Hunting

By: Monique Westaby

A Hop, Skip and a Jump

Blaze, Grace and Cordellia remained treed in the
middle of a large swamp for a good half hour as our friend,
Brandon, my husband, Scott, and I tried to determine the
best course of action to take.
The girls would move from tree to tree, staying at each
one for a few minutes, then move on to the next. They
made circles, hitting the same trees several times, but
never staying at one long enough for us to feel confident
in their choice.
We parked along the west side and took the first few
steps into the swamp. Before long, maybe 10 yards off the
road, it got wet. No, wet isnt the right word. It got deep.
No, it got bottomless.
The mounds where the small trees grew were our only
hope for getting to the dogs. We hopped from one to the
other, knowing wed lose a leg, if not more, if we tried the
spots in between.
Brandon and Scott moved quite a bit ahead of me. Apparently my 5-foot-3-inch height makes for short legs that
those boys just didnt want to wait for. They moved in farther while I followed the GPS to where the three dogs had
started this swamp treeing adventure. Maybe thered still
be a coon up that first tree. Plus, it was closer to the road.
I maneuvered around one tree, grasping it for support
as I stretched my waterlogged boot to the next mound. Realizing the following mound was not as close as the last, I
carefully balanced across an old rotten log that cracked
and crumbled under me.
Another jump, hop and balancing act, and I was nearly
there. But the brush got thick and the water grew. I stopped
for a few moments and leaned against a small tree, listening to the dogs bark intermittently about 80 yards away as
I plotted my next move.
I heard a rustle above me.
The light proved my guess and there it was, a blob of
fur. I carefully moved around the tree to determine what
type of blob this fur might belong to and sure enough,
there it was, the perfect brown and black ringtail. Looking
at the GPS, the dogs hadnt chosen this tree, it was pure
luck Id stumbled on it.
Scott! I yelled across the swamp. I found one.
Good, he responded. It sucks over here and the dogs
moved north.
The guys maneuvered their way to me, and I guided
them to balance on that log, jump to those knolls and grab
this branch for support. We found a decent spot to take a
shot and down the coon went. Not huge, but it made our
efforts through the death swamp a little more worthwhile.
Our dogs were still north, but we knew coming in from
the field side would be considerably easier than this.
A truck drove by, reminding us we were only about 30
yards away from the road we had parked on. There was
just one problem. The road might be 30 yards away, but
those 30 yards held about 25 yards of bottomless swamp

I didnt take any pictures while I was in the swamp since I

was too busy worrying about losing myself in the bottomless water. This picture is from last year and makes me
laugh everytime. Since she was little, Blaze has been, aside
from a walker, a jumper and climber. Cordellia is the
black and tan, and prefers to keep her feet on the ground.

By Heather Dekan
WQOW News 18 was at Cadott Elementary School Dec.
4, for the Weather Academy, a program started in 2005 to
show area school children how weather works and how to
stay safe when severe weather threatens.
We average about six schools a year for the weather academy, said WQOW chief meteorologist Nick Grunseth. And
we go to different communities around the Chippewa Valley.
The program consists of two parts an assembly during
the day to show students weather processes and severe
weather through visual aids and experiments, and an open
house for family and community members.
The open house was held from 5-6:30 p.m., where students, family and other members of the community could see
experiments, play weather games, win door prizes, color pictures for the Daybreak show and be a part of a live weather
The Cadott Weather Academy was one of the best turn
outs we have had,said Grunseth. Everyone was very involved, the kids were excited and they listened well.
At the open house, you could tell how involved the community is, as well as the staff. It was a great time and we had
a lot of fun too. We are just so thankful to have had the opportunity to have the Weather Academy in Cadott.
There are videos of the live weather forecasts featuring
Cadott students posted on WQOWs website (wqow.com)
under the weather academy link.

cleared previously of larger timber in 2013-2014.
1. The village has a current WI DNR WRAPP
permit which requires erosion control to be installed
prior to grubbing/earth disturbing activities, in order
to prevent erosion from leaving the site. See attached map for proposed silt fence installation locations. The contractor will be responsible for
installing and maintaining all silt fence in accordance with the permit. Silt fence will be left in place
after the work is completed.
2. Cut and remove, and dispose of all cleared
trees, brush, tops, and all stumps and debris on the
site in appropriate piles at a location(s) in the south
west corner of the lot designated by the village.
These piles will be burned by the village in the future. All stumps should be removed by excavation
to include the root ball. All stumps will be hauled
to a separate pile from brush and tree tops. Nothing will be buried.
3. Rake, remove debris which will prevent the
land from being farmed, and grade the remaining
topsoil surface so that the land can be plowed and
disked for planting crops.
The village would like to have the work completed during the winter months so that any restoration or agricultural field preparation can be
completed in the spring of 2015 as soon as the
ground thaws.
See attached map of the area of work and
for general lot dimensions. Contractors must travel
to the site and look at the site before submitting a
bid quote for the work
Access to Tower Drive will be limited for
heavy machinery. Access shall not be across curb
and gutter. Access can be obtained by unloading
equipment in the cul-de-sac with village supervision; same with loading equipment after the work
is completed.
Quotations for the above work shall include
all materials, all equipment, all labor, and all miscellaneous costs required to accomplish the work
in a timely and workmanlike manner. The costs for
the work should be separated into the scope items
#1 - #3 listed above. Any credits for lumber kept by
the contractor should be shown as a deduct in the
total costs of the work.
Sealed quotes should be submitted in writing to: Village of Cadott, 110 E. Central Street,

Iron Horse Steakhouse pulls back into the station

Trenton Kron, Parker Miller, Cead Ewer and Clayton

Roscoe, Lake Holcombe fourth graders, check out
the jewelry table at the Holiday Shoppe Dec. 12. Donations were given to the school, and students
could choose two items for their family or friends.
Other gifts included candles, canteens, decorative
items and stuffed animals.

All aboard!
After being closed for several years, the Iron Horse Steakhouse between Holcombe and Ladysmith has re-opened
under new ownership. Owners Andrew Johnson and Joshua
Tyznik got the idea to re-open the train themed supper club
when they drove by and saw a for sale sign.
We jumped at the opportunity, said Tyznik. Dorothy
Haraburda, former owner, wanted to make sure the right people were coming in to take care of the legacy.
Iron Horse has been in existence since 1932, and the decor
reflects that time period. A telegraph office is posted at the
main entrance, railroad signs and photographs are displayed
on the walls, and a model train runs on a track around the
dining room.
Weve done a little painting, and we plan on some cosmetic updating and a facelift for the outside of the building,
said Johnson, but well still keep the iconic train feel.
In addition to normal supper fare, Iron Horse serves homemade pizza, blackboard specials and may add wild game to
the menu.
Nothing is frozen, everything is made fresh, said Johnson. You get a burger here, youre gonna like it.
The supper club is open Thursday through Sunday, from 4
p.m. to bar close, and offers private bookings or offsite catering. The owners also have begun to plan special parties, with
local talent which includes a harpist, guitar player and polka
We have about 12 employees, all local; we call them the
dirty dozen, said Tyznik. People seem very happy to see
the business open as a supper club, not a sports bar. Weve

had people come from as far away as Cadott, Gilman, Ladysmith and Medford.
We usually take property, get it up and running, then sell
it, but we kind of like this one and its a perfect location,
Johnson said. I think well be here a long time; its a good

Lake Holcombe Elementary School Christmas Program

Elves Ramona Scharf and Rosie Mohr help wrap

presents Lake Holcombe students chose for special people in their lives. Students had $2 to spend
at the Holiday Shoppe Dec. 12, and could choose
two items. The volunteers wrapped presents, then
returned them to the classrooms so students had
gifts for their friends or family on Christmas.

Lake Holcombe Elementary students conclude A Martian Christmas by singing Celebrate Out of This
World Dec. 8. All grades sang select numbers with their class, then joined with the rest of the elementary
for the final number, dancing and sharing holiday cheer to family and friends in the audience. Other songs
for the bleezbot holiday fantasy included Jingle Bells, A Reason for the Season and Christmas Cookies.

Martians invade Lake

Holcombe School, with
plans to freeze-dry students for fuel for their

of) for the trip back to
their home planet.
