Thanksgiving has always

been a time to celebrate
with friends and family
on the Parisi farm, located
on Halverson Road a few
miles north of Stoughton.
The holiday marks the
end of the growing and
harvesting season. Its a
time to get some rest after
long workdays and enjoy
good company and the food

going to be tough for Terry
Parisi, her three adult children and extended family
and friends.
Her husband of 35 years,
Ron, died at age 60 in July
after a four-year battle with

with a lot of integrity,
and it was hard to continue
the farming operation as
his health declined and his
death became imminent.
He loved Thanksgiving,

Thanksgiving was
always a really big holiday
for Ron, she said. Ironically and sadly, the type of
cancer that Ron had prevented him from eating
with his mouth. He was
pretty much on a feeding
tube for the last four years.
And even with that,
he still wanted to have a
big Thanksgiving gathering here with all the food
and the smells and all the
people, because he wanted
to continue to have that
camaraderie and that familial tradition, even though
he couldnt eat any of the
So the Parisi tradition of
celebrating with family and
friends will continue.

squash dishes and pumpkin
pies comes off the farm.

raised and processed their

from the Bryant Foundation, matching money

The last I heard, the City Council represents the wishes of the

Stoughton is trying to build as a

The small Wal-Mart store near

purpose, but its national reputation suggests it is aggressive in
competing with local businesses
and does not treat employees with
the respect they should receive.
The impression I get is that

people object to enticements

from the city to build that particular store. Is there not information that states that people would

been disregarded?

City of Stoughton

Wal-Mart debate can be decided in the spring election

While an advisory referendum
sounds good and democratic, it
would still represent input from a
relatively small percentage of the
population in a local spring election.Besides, it is a local election.
People should choose their representatives on the council based
on their view on the KPW development if they consider it a matter
of the highest priority. This will
also clearly send a message to the
council members and the mayor.
If there was real concern for
community input, the city would
do a high-quality survey by a
reputable organization such as the
University of Wisconsin Survey
Mail return surveys or surveys
with loaded or biased questions which are inserted in newspapers or other forms of distribution with voluntary returns are

more likely to represent views on

the extremes rather than those of
the general population since the
people who return such forms are
those with relatively strong feelings on the matter in one direction
or the other. That is why they are
used by political organizations
and special interest groups and
commercial businesses.
I would suggest that the Courier Hub could help to bring some
better light on to the KPW debate
and on the future direction for
the city by not just running letters from people but by asking
a prominent representative of
each side (the mayor, the Council President, a spokesperson for
the anti-KPW folk like Christa
Westerberg) of the KPW debate
to respond to a series of questions
related to KPW and development
in general.

Responses could be side-byside, similar to what Ive seen in

some big city papers. The respondents could each suggest questions to be included and the final
decision on questions determined
by your editorial board perhaps
expanded to include a few more
public folk.
You could also limit the number of words in the response to
each question. You could also
allow for expanded info on your
web page and references to source
You could also do this as a
series with one of more questions
covered each week.

With one goal accomplished, this spring, Brooks
attained another when he
moved his own personal
gym out of his house to
form his dream business,
Primal Strength and Fitness (1060 W. Main St.).
Last summer, I had a
lot of this equipment in my
garage, and people would
train with me, Brooks said.
Some of my friends were
saying, You should just

thanks to a word-of-mouth
approach that he seeks to
include people and athlete
types of all ages. Despite
the savage-sounding name,
Primal is much more than
just a place where big guys
grunt and put heavy things
up and down.
P.R.I.M.A.L. is an acronym, Brooks explains.
I know it sounds like
youre a caveman spearing
an elk, but its the pillars of
what we believe in Powerful, Respectful, Intense,
Muscular, Athletic Lifestyle. Youre going to get
powerful. When you come
here, youre respected, no
matter if you can bench
press the bar or 500 pounds.
Its an intense muscular
athletic lifestyle.
Brooks said many people
are realizing the positives
that working with weights
can bring to their everyday
Theres a lot of benefits
to being stronger, he said.
It increases your bone density, which as you get older,
starts to decline, so youre
less likely to break bones
if you take a spill, because
your bones are a lot denser
and thicker.
Brooks said when lifting
weights, its all about proper technique, and what you
dont know can hurt you.
I hear people say squattings bad for the knees,
he said. My response is,
Squatting is one of the
best thing you can do for
your knees, to building the
muscle around your knee
to protect it, but only if
you squat correctly. If you
half-squat, you put pressure
on your patella which is not
good for your knees.
While the gym has plenty
of massive equipment for
heavy lifting This is not
something you can get at
Dicks Sporting Goods,
Brooks said there are fitness classes for kids that
he teaches and several for
women led by personal
trainer and powerlifter Becca Abrahams, who said Primals challenge fitness is
catching on.
Crossfit has brought

the mainstream for women,

Brooks, who competed in
the inaugural strongman
event at this years Syttende
Mai inaugural celebration,
said hes enjoying learning
Stoughtons unique culture.
He said powerlifters tend to
have their own culture, too,
and hes looking forward to
sharing that with the community, and perhaps dispel
a myth or two.
They are some of the
nicest people youll find,
Brooks said of lifters. If
you show up to a meet,
youll find guys with flame
tattoos on their arms, big
burly beard, bald head they look like someone you
wouldnt want to meet up in
a dark alley with but they
are some of the most lovable, kind people you will
Brooks said the powerlifting community is very
supportive, which is something he takes full advantage of to help others, and
We get to know each
other really well, we trade
notes on what were doing

not like I keep everything a

secret Im doing - I share it

way they can also get stronger and then that makes a
better competition for me

Idolatry is usually thought of as the worship of idols, idols being things or forms
which are not God. Idolatry can take many
forms, from worshipping creatures rather
than the Creator, to worshipping an image.
The original Greek word, eidololatres, is a
simple combination of two Greek words,
eidos, meaning form, and latreia, meaning service, suggesting that the term
originally entailed worshipping (or serving)
an image or form. For whatever reason,
human beings are strangely disposed to
this grave sin, perhaps because we are
material beings and our minds and hearts
are so easily drawn to images and material
things which can then seem by their power
or beauty to be divine. The history of the
early Israelites is replete with examples of
idolatry, most notably the worship of the
golden calf in the 32nd chapter of Exodus,
but also earlier in Genesis 31:19, where we
are informed When Laban had gone to
shear his sheep, Rachel stole her fathers
household gods. Household gods is a
translation of the Hebrew word teraphim
and in this passage there is barely a
hint of Gods disapproval. In Exodus 32,
however, three-thousand of the Israelites
were struck down by the sword for their
sin of worshipping the golden calf. Shortly
thereafter the Lord struck the people with
a plague because of what they did with the
calf Aaron had made. (Exodus 32:35) We
would all do well to remember Gods first

Parisi: Family farm has 45 CSA members in year one, hopes to grow to 80 families
Continued from page 1
When we moved to this
farmhouse, all we had was a
push lawnmower without a
motor on it, Terry recalled.
Our yard in Madison was
The family had to acquire
lots of stuff chainsaws, riding mowers, and eventually a
tractor to survive those early
years on the farm, she said.
For the first 14 years, they
used about half the land for
conventional crop rotation,
growing corn, soybeans and
wheat. They provided the
land for a neighboring farmer
to use, and split the cost and
the harvest.
That arrangement is ongoing, but about 11 years ago,
Franco Parisi, 33, decided he
wanted to begin growing produce organically.
He did some research and
began growing vegetables on
an acre. Each year, he learned
more about growing organically and efficiently.
Ron and Terry helped, as
well, despite the fact that each
had their own career.
Ron worked as a maintenance technician at the UW
Hospital until completing an
MATC nursing program in
1994. Nursing then became
his passion, and he worked
for adults with developmental
disabilities, caring for them
in the comfort of their own
Terry taught in the Oregon
School District, where she
still works.

Becoming a CSA
In the early years of growing produce, Franco and
Terry sold organic vegetables
at farmers markets in Stoughton, Oregon and Evansville.
They did most of the work
by hand and spent long hours
laboring in the garden especially Franco.
He is the brains and the
grunt work of this operation,
and I am stoop labor, Terry
Franco orchestrates what
were planting and how were
going to locate it to meet the
specifications to be organic.
He researches and does all the
best practices.
Within a couple of years,
they were supplying produce
for grocery co-ops and restaurants in Madison and Stoughton, including The Weary
Traveler, Alchemy, Hotel Red
and, more recently, Wendigo.
In 2007, they decided
to become a CSA farm.

Ron Parisi, who died in July, proudly displays an organic megabeet grown on the farm.

The children of neighbors Beth and Rick Melner gather around their CSA share at Parisi Family Farm.

Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular

model for consumers who
want to know where and how
their food is grown. Its beneficial to producers as well,
because CSA members or
subscribers pay at the onset
of the growing season for a
share of the anticipated harvest. Once harvesting begins,
they receive weekly shares of
produce in a vegetable box.
We have probably 45
CSA members this year that
we delivered to in Madison
and Stoughton, Terry said.
Now we have four or five
acres that are certified organic, but some of that is hay that
we grow for our goats. The
organic vegetables we grow
on a little more than an acre. I
think we counted 43 different
kinds of vegetables.
Beyond the veggies, the
Parisis also raise goats and
chickens. And this year, Francos girlfriend, Janelle Burnham, started a beehive.
They had their first live
birth of a kid on the farm
this year and are in the process of breeding goats again.
The family drinks the
raw milk and also uses it for
cheese and goat milk soap.
Weve had a few processed at a place in Albany,
Terry said. Weve sold some
goat meat and we eat it ourselves. So it would be pasteurized goat meat from animals that are fed organically.

start to see the numbers make
it worthwhile, Terry said.
We are just at the breaking
As the main laborer, Franco
has just passed another long
season of 12- to 16-hour days.
He said in order to continue
at that pace, the operation
is going to have to become
more mechanized.
I enjoy growing but were
trying to get more machineoriented its the only way to
go, he said. Right now, its

They raise chickens for

eggs and have had some meat
chickens as well.
Franco estimated that about
75 percent of the profit he and
Terry earn comes from CSA
members, with another 25
percent in sales to restaurants
and co-ops.

Finding balance
In order for the produce
operation to become financially viable long-term, Terry
said she and Franco are going
to have to enlist more CSA
Its a difficult balance of
producing enough food for all
those people and not working
themselves into the ground.
Were kind of at a crossroads right now, Terry said.
Were just not even sure
because this year has been so
incredibly difficult with my
husbands illness and then his
ultimate passing, and we had
to keep it going without him.
So were kind of re-evaluating, she continued. If we
were to do the CSA again next
year, we certainly would say
were in for more members.
She and Franco figure they
have the land, and the only
way they can make the CSA
work is by getting to a threshold where the sweat and equity starts to pay off.
They think that sweet number is 70 or 80 members.
Were hearing from other
farms that once you get to 80,

of the spring is crucial to

Q. What is influenza and why is it more dangerous for seniors?

A. Influenza, also known as the flu, is caused by a virus, or a germ. While most people

A. No. A fair amount of builders have extremely talented designers on staff resulting in the

Q. What are you doing to protect my loved one in a skilled nursing facility against this disease called Ebola?
A. Ebola is transmitted by someone with the disease via contact with their blood or other bodily fluids. Currently,


there is no proven treatment for this virus. A person can become infected with Ebola if they have been exposed to the
bodily fluids of someone infected with the virus. The infected person may not show symptoms of the virus for 21 days.
Nazareth Health and Rehabilitation Center has adapted Health Dimensions Groups Policy on Ebola preparedness; we
are screening patients carefully prior to admission into the facility for signs and symptoms of Ebola. Our admission
coordinator is working to ensure that new residents do not have a fever of unknown origin and have not come into
contact with someone with Ebola. They also are focused on determining if someone has been potentially exposed to
Lauren Hartlaub RN, Ebola which could occur if they have visited Western Africa in the last 21 days. Employee illnesses are also being
carefully monitored for these same scenarios.
Nazareth has also educated their staff on the disease as well as WHAT IFs. The facility has equipment including
policies and procedures in place if an outbreak were to occur at the facility.
Good hand hygiene is important all the time. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol sanitizer frequently is important. Disease
prevention always starts with good hand washing.

recover in 1-2 weeks from the flu, others develop serious lung infections. This type of
flu complication can land one in the hospital, and also lead to Pneumonia, Bronchitis
and other serious infections. More than 60% of seasonal flu-related hospitalizations and
90% of related deaths occur in people 65 years and older. The flu is a greater concern for
the elderly because, as we get older, our immune system becomes weaker. This makes it
easier for seniors to get the flu, and much more difficult to fight off complications from
it. Ask your doctor if you should get a flu shot and when to get it. You can go to your
local clinic or even the local pharmacy to receive your flu shot. Nows the time to set up
your flu shot appointment because most medical experts recommend you get a flu shot
in November. In general the flu season begins in December and can last until spring.
If you wait until the midst of flu season to get a shot, these antibodies in the flu shot
wont have enough time to develop immunity from the flu. According to the National
Institution on Aging, Medicare will pay for a flu shot.

Q. What is the difference between silver and white fillings?

A. Most people recognize amalgam fillings as silver fillings. Amalgam is a mix of
mercury, silver, tin and copper. Since the mercury is combined with other materials, its
chemical nature changes, rendering it harmless and making them a safe and affordable
choice. Amalgam fillings are often chosen for their durability and strength, especially
in teeth where chewing and grinding result in heavy wear.
Resin composite fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds. Because resins
are tooth-colored, these fillings are often used on front teeth. Initially, resin fillings
Thor J. Anderson, DDS
were not strong enough to use in areas of high-pressure grinding and chewing.
However, over the past decade, technology has greatly improved to allow the use of
resin materials in back teeth. Resins are often chosen for teeth with cracks in them as they actually bond the
tooth together, making it stronger. To determine what type of restoration is best for you, ask your dentist.

Goals could

Jeremy Jones

Both Michael Gerber and Zach

Kirby moved on for All-Region
Consideration, as well.
It shows the other players in
the program, and the supporters
of our program that we have good
football players in this town,
Thiry said. It also shows people
that success is not something that
you stumble across, you have to
work for everything.
As I tell the players, there is no
elevator for success ... you must
take the stairs. Alex bought into
that, and his hard work has put him
in a situation where he is getting
post-season recognition.

Stoughton senior Alex Zacharias was named to the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All State team as an honorable mention linebacker. Zacharias, a two-time firstteam Badger South All-Conference linebacker, was also named the conference Defensive Player of the Year this season.

Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

To say senior Alex Zacharias

was the heart and soul of this seasons Stoughton football team
wouldnt be far from the truth.
One of three senior captains
who helped the Vikings reach the
WIAA playoffs for the first time
in 16 years, Zacharias repeated as
a first-team Badger South Conference linebacker and was also
named the Defensive Player of the

My teammates helped
push me in practice, and
my coaches helped push
me. ... Im just honored to
be mentioned.
Andrew Zacharias, SHS
football linebacker
Earlier this month he found out
from head coach Jason Thiry that
hed been recognized for an even
more impressive accolade, being
named honorable mention on the
Wisconsin Football Coaches Associations All-State team.

My teammates helped push me

in practice, and my coaches helped
push me, Zacharias said. I put
in the extra work in the offseason (lifting, going to combine and
going to camps) to really achieve
what I wanted to achieve. Im just
honored to be mentioned.
For a player to get that far the
following needs to happen Thiry
said: First, they must be named
first-team all-conference. Second,
conference schools must agree to
players being moved on to AllRegion voting.
The Region coach representatives then get together and vote an
All-Region team before the AllRegion players move on to the AllState coaches committee.


Stoughton grad leads MATC to

second straight championship
Anthony Iozzo
Assistant sports editor

Stoughton graduate and Madison Area Technical College

sophomore volleyball player
Katlynn Wirag suffered a concussion as a freshman, limiting
her minutes.
Wirag rejoined MATC in time
for its first NJCAA Division III
championship in 2013, but she
had to take it slow.
She was healthy in 2014, and
she was able to lead MATC to
its second straight national title,
earning tournament MVP honors
in the process with 25 kills and
25 digs in the tournament.
To be able to repeat was

absolutely incredible, Wirag

said. Not too many people can
say they won a nation title, especially winning two years in a
row. Its a good feeling to be able
to be a part of a program that
accomplish such big things.
Wirag was in a car accident
with her sister Maggie Jo, a
sophomore volleyball player for
Stoughton High School, during
the Stoughton homecoming during her freshman year and didnt
know she had suffered a concussion.
Later during the season, she
was hit in the head with a volleyball, and she noticed something was wrong. Wirag went to
the doctor and was told she had

suffered not one but two concussions.

Going from some playing
time and practicing everyday to
not being able to practice or suit
up for games was really tough,
Wirag said. Once I was fully
healthy, I knew I had to work
really hard to earn my spot back
and be able to play this season.
She did earn her spot back, and
she was key in the championship
run that ended in back-to-back
That is something that has built

Icebergs struggle to score goals in Earlybird tournament

Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

The Icebergs dropped the

puck on the 2014-15 winter
season going 0-2-1 at the
Early Bird tournament in
Waupun last weekend.
Stoughton bookended a
2-1 loss against Fond du
Lac and a 5-1 defeat at the
hands of Northland Pines
around a 1-1 tie against
Appleton United.
The Icebergs, who were
outscored 8-3 for the tournament, did not net a

third-period goal.
Freshman forward Sydney Urso scored two of the
teams three goals. Junior
defenseman Maddy Hess
scored the seasons first
goal on the power play. She
also added an assist over
the weekend.
The Icebergs allowed a
pair of short-handed goals,
including the game-winner
in the opening game to
the Warbirds Kendalynn
Stoughton pulled its
goalie with 1 minute, 30

seconds left in the game for

the extra attacker. Though
the Icebergs managed six
shots over that span, they
were unable to come up
with an equalizer.
Urso and Appleton
Uniteds Natalie West
exchanged goals in the first
period of what Jochmann
called a great back-andforth game. Neither team
was able to find the back
of the net again, however,
as Torpy stopped 35 shots
on goal and Appleton netminder Emily Fischer

turned away 18 of 19.

Torpy, who turned away
49 of 54 shots against
Northland Pines on Saturday afternoon, finished the
weekend with a 2.55-goals
against average and .937
save percentage.
The Icebergs open the
Badger Conference season
Friday against the Badger
Thunder inside the Sauk
Prairie Area Rec Center at
7 p.m.
They host the Metro

All-State: Zacharias proud

to be a part of playoff-squad
Continued from page 9
of Wisconsin recruit P.J.
Rosowski, who was named
to the second-team Associated Press squad last season as a punter.
I think it says a lot
about the support they get
from their homes, especially their parents, Thiry
said.Both of those players
are three sport athletes, and
it takes time and patience to
support all three areas from
the home.They both have a
lot in common in regards to
being athletic and great students in the classroom.
For all of the individual
accolades, Zacharias said
he was most proud to be
part of the senior class that
helped Stoughton get back
to the playoffs.
That was indescribable,
how special that was to this
group of guys, he said.
That was our goal the
entire season.
The highlight of the season, Zacharias said, had to
be the Vikings victory at
Badger South rival Oregon a victory that made
Stoughton playoff eligible. It was also a game in
which Zacharias, who also
doubled as a running back,
carried the ball 14 straight
times on the same drive for
the go-ahead touchdown.
The first couple times
I was really excited to run
the ball, he said. Then I
started getting kind of tired,
but coach just kept calling
the same play. I just wanted to get into the end zone
to put my team ahead.
That touchdown was
both a source of elation and
relief for Zacharias.
I was kind of relieved I

scored because I was tired,

but I knew we werent in
the playoffs yet. We still
needed to make a stop on
defense, he said.
A clutch interception
at the end of the game
by safety John McCune
sealed the win.
Zacharias, who tentatively plans to major
in biology, said he has
received limited contact
up to this point about
playing football.
I think I am better
defensively, but I enjoy
playing on both sides of
the ball, he said. Linebacker would probably be
my preference in college.
For now, the 17-yearold he plans to turn his
attention to help the
Vikings boys basketball
team find continued success on the hardwood
before returning to the
baseball diamond in the
Football has always
probably been my best
sport and my favorite,
though baseball is pretty
close, he said. I like basketball, but its kind of my
third sport.
Thiry said Zacharias
simply has a natural ability on the gridiron that is
not coachable.
His instincts of getting
off the block and finding
the football is what separates him from other high
school players, Thiry
said. In addition, his
drive to desire to be the
best player on the field
and have the best work
ethic off the field is why
he was the high school
football player and person
he is today.

Wirag: Stoughton grad wins tournament MVP

Continued from page 9
Winning MVP was surreal, Wirag said. It is
everything I have worked
for; everything I dream for.
Those were my intentions
going in to the season.
Schools Wirag is interested in include the University
of Wisconsin-Whitewater
and Madison Edgewood

been decided yet, she plans
on contacting schools now

Stoughton roots
Wirag played her final
high school years at
Stoughton under now head
coach Kelly Sorensen, and

she said Sorensen was a big

help preparing her for the
college level.
Sorensen, who helped
lead the UW-Whitewater
volleyball team to the Division III final four in 2005
and 2006, has also helped
to guide Wirag on where
she will play volleyball
next, Wirag said.
I talked to (Sorensen)
a week ago at the Stoughton volleyball banquet,
and she told me her experience in the Final Four in

Whitewater and how proud

she was, Wirag said. She
is glad that I got to experience such a feeling that she
did, as well.
Wirag also said that
Sorensen has helped with
advice on what college to
attend, telling her to add
UW-Stevens Point and
UW-Eau Claire as potential
colleges to go to.
Time will tell where
Wirag will end up, but she
said she definitely wants
volleyball in her future.

Host-A-Family seeks holiday

donations, volunteers

Stuff the Truck

Stoughton Pick n Save recently matched a pair of $750 customer donations to the Stoughton Food
Pantry and United Methodist Church Food Pantry , part of the stores Stuff the Truck Thanksgiving
food drive of offering bags of food for customers to purchase for area families in need. Assistant
manager Chris Flannery said this year, the store has sold more than 1,000 bags, which available
throughout the year. We will keep selling the bags until nobody in Stoughton is having to go without
meals, Flannery said.

Call 1-877-301-DEAN (3326)

TTY users dial: 711 or 1-877-733-6456

The Host-A-Family
(HAF) organization is looking for businesses and individuals who could provide
gifts anonymously for more
than 300 families in need
during the holiday season.
The group is short of covering gifts for nearly 125
families, organizer Lisa
Clark told the Hub.
Last year, the group
helped close to 160 families
in Stoughton. The nonprofit
Host a Family organization
has been in operation for
about 20 years.

hosts for this years Christmas giving event should

so they can get their family wish list and gifts delivered to HAF for the early
December delivery to the
Although we still need
hosts, with the holidays
upon us, the best thing people could do right now is to
purchase gift cards which
can be redistributed to families in need, Clark said
in an email. Some of the
most requested items have
included household goods,

How to help
Purchase gift cards that will be distributed to
families in need in Stoughton. Send cards to:
Host-A-Family Program, P.O. Box 295, Stoughton,
WI 53589
Or you can shop online and donate proceeds to

warm clothing, and toys for
the little ones so gift cards
that can be used for these
would be greatly appreciated.
Many families struggling
today are also requesting
items like food, gas cards
and clothing to help them
make ends meet, Host-AFamily coordinator Sue
Schadewald said in a news
release. The groups mission has evolved over the
years from one gift-giving
event to helping families in
crisis throughout the year.
In most cases, help from
HAF allows families to
regain stability in their lives
and locate more long-term
assistance from other organizations and resources.
The need in the community has never been greater,

so Im hoping that, those

who can, will give, said
Schadewald. We always
have families referred to us
at the last minute, so it is
critical that we have a supply of gift cards or chamber
bucks to ensure that everyone will receive something
this holiday season.
Gift cards can be mailed
to Host-A-Family Program,
P.O. Box 295, Stoughton,
WI 53589. Tax receipts are
available upon request.
Another way to help
HAF is to go through and designate Host-A-Family as
their charity of choice. A
percentage of the buyers
eligible purchases will be
donated to HAF.

Mildred T. Gjertson

She married her high school

sweetheart, Chester Gjertson, on July 5, 1942.
She attended the UWMadison and then worked
for the Wisconsin State
Journal while her husband
was away serving in World
War II. Mildred and Chet
made Madison their home
and raised their three children. She assisted as a Girl
Scout and Boy Scout leader, served as a member of
the P.T.A., Dane Co. Dental
Auxiliary, Eastside Businessmens Association and
Olbrich Botanical Gardens,
and also taught Sunday
school. Once her children
had grown, Mildred worked
alongside her husband at
his dental office until their
She liked going up to
their cabin in Solon Springs
to fish, swim, hike and pick
blueberries. Mildred was a
sports enthusiast and loved
watching the Brewers,
Packers and Badger basketball and football. She and
Chet enjoyed many trips to
the Black Hills and Minnesota, and came to love the
Minnesota landscape. They
were also members of the
Badger Antique Auto Club
and attended many parades.
Most of all Mildred was
devoted to her family; her
children remember her
infectious laughter, so loud
that Chet would threaten to
close the windows so as not
to disturb the neighbors. As
a grandma she was one of
her grandchildrens biggest
fans, supporting them in all
of their activities.

Caidyn: Food delivered for

Thanksgiving this week
Continued from page 1
concept about the importance of volunteering.
The most important
thing to me for Caidyn was
that this has been planned
for a month, she said. Not
once did he ever back out
and say he wanted presents
instead. He has always been
extremely excited.
With his age it is a
good, little start to do
something like that.
While collecting the food,
Caidyn made it very clear he
knows how lucky he is to have

a roof over his head and food

on his table. Leading up to the
party, he investigated the types
of foods the pantry was in
need of (pointing out it didnt
have enough juice boxes).
Caidyn personally delivered the food to the pantry
this week just in time for
Thanksgiving. He and his
family hope word of his
party will spark a new trend
within the community to
give back in creative ways.
Its like having a birthday party with the whole
community, Caidyn said
with a smile.

Its your paper, too

consideration, e-mail
Food Pantry. About 272 pounds of food, along with some cash donations, was collected earlier this month.

Switch and well

Then, well give you
