Stoughton has earned a growing

reputation in the area has a great place
for seniors to enjoy their retirement
years. But not many people know
its apparently a great place to live if
youre an area senior center director.
Theres really no rhyme or reason
to it, but Stoughton is home to the
directors of senior centers in Stoughton (Cindy McGlynn), Verona (Mary
Hanson), Fitchburg (Jill McHone),
Fort Atkinson (Chris Nye) and until
her retirement in July, McFarland
(Ingrid Thompson).
And while theyve all come here for
different reasons, these neighbors
are making the most of their association to help each other guide their
communities centers into the future.
We all have the same passion for
helping older adults; people who care
deeply for older adults and want to
do the best for them, said Stoughton
Area Senior Center director Cindy
McGlynn. It doesnt matter where
you live, there are great senior centers
in all these communities.
Hanson she said its hard to
explain the coincidence of several
area senior center directors hailing
from a common community, but she
suspected it might have something to
do with Stoughtons reputation as a
destination for seniors.

Mary Hanson has lived in

Stoughton for more than 40

Cindy McGlynn started working
in Stoughton right out of college.


Ingrid Thompson who retired
in July has lived in Stoughton
for more than two decades.

Jill McHone moved to

Stoughton 18 years ago from her
native Indiana.
Having been a resident for a long
time, its a very warm, welcoming
community, and I think thats the
nature of people interested in working
at a senior center, she said.

First job
McGlynn moved to the city 23
years ago, and she has worked at the
center since she graduated from college.
She started out as a very part-time
volunteer coordinator and steadily
worked her way up to the director
position a decade ago.
I kind of stumbled upon the job,

folks here, the cab service, a senior

have some great nursing homes and

With state budget cuts to

public schools continuing
to dry up familiar funding sources, the Stoughton
Area School District Board
of Education is looking
to be proactive in finding
some financial flexibility.
Monday night, the board
voted unanimously to
adjust its budget to allow
extra revenues from sports
tournaments hosted at the
district to be carried over
for larger expenses, rather
than being used by the end
of the school year.
In an email to the Hub on
Tuesday, district director
of business services Erica
Pickett said the districts
athletic tournaments typically generate profits that
historically have gone back
to the athletic department
for programming.
This change (in technical
terms, moving this money
from the districts Fund 21
to Fund 10) will allow the
department to carry over
funds from one year to the
next, allowing for multiyear planning if desired.
This isnt really giving

us more money, just more

flexibility in how we use
it, she said.

New hires
The board approved four
new hires to replace teachers who recently resigned.
The new teachers are River
Bluff reading teacher Sarah
Miller, River Bluff counselor David Gerszewski, Kegonsa Elementary learning
strategist Kathryn Sannes
and Sandhill Elementary
speech and language teacher Sandra Wagner.
The board also voted
to approve contracts for
more staff additions for this
school year at River Bluff
Middle School a new
sixth-grade teaching position, a learning strategist
position to be split between
the middle school and Kegonsa Elementary School,
and an educational assistant position at the middle
District human resources
director Becky Fjelstad said
the three positions were
added because of 25 additional students at the middle
school, and two interviews

Planning Commission quick hits

Affordable housing,
subdivision plans forwarded
The City of Stoughton
Planning Commission
approved and forwarded a
handful of items following
several public hearings at
its regular meeting held
Monday, Sept. 14.

Affordable housing
A group of three multifamily buildings totaling
around 23 units could get
some renovations after
the commission voted to
allow the Dane County
Housing Authority to purchase and rehabilitate the
Park Vernon apartments.
The goal is to improve
the affordable housing
stock, according to documents filed with the city.
Dane County would
take over ownership of the
properties and make them
more ADA-accessible
and energy-efficient. The
authority plans to make
interior improvements
like new cabinets, flooring and appliances, but
tenants would continue
paying Section 8 housing
rates, limited to 30 percent
of their income. The rest
is covered by the federal

floor of 135 W. Main St.

The conditional use
permit was planned to go
before the Common Council Sept. 22.

Eastwood Estates
Plans to rezone four
lots in Eastwood Estates
garnered support from
the commission. The four
lots would be rezoned as
single-family properties
instead of planned development. The homes will
be similar in price to the
existing condominiums in
the subdivision.
The city will get a
15-foot utility easement
along the easternmost
property, and an undeveloped area north of the
single-family lots would
be rezoned as institutional
use to match the adjacent
lot owned by the city.
The survey maps and
rezone petition will be
reviewed by the Common
Council Oct. 13.

DPI chooses contractor

for new state exam
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction
selected an exam provider
to replace the statewide
Badger Exam.
The Wisconsin Forward
Exam will be administered
in spring 2016 in place of
the Badger Exam, used for
the first time last year to
test Common Core standards.
The Republican-controlled state legislature prohibited the use of the Badger Exam in the state budget. Critics questioned the
Common Core standards
it was aligned to, which
were originally adopted by
almost every state but have
faced backlash in the last
year around the country.
According to a DPI news
release, the state will contract with Data Recognition Corporation, which
has a Wisconsin office,
for the development,

administration and reporting of results for the new

The release said the new
exam will be shorter and
less costly than the Badger Exam, which ran over
expected costs last year and
had components that did
not perform as they were
supposed to.
The Forward Exam will
be administered online and
test third- through eighthgrade students in English,
language arts and math.
It will also test science in
grades four, eight and 10.
High school students grades
nine through 11 will take
the ACT test.
The contract terms still
need to be finalized, and the
test and timing are all contingent on that process, the
news release said.

The Sept. 10 edition of the Stoughton Courier Hub
said that girls tennis player Anna Nelson lost 6-0, 6-0
to Oregons Renee Lewandowski in the third-place

Letters to the editor

Education reform will take a generation

Let us for a moment think large
about education.
We live in an America where
many prize willful ignorance. The
power of this is vast and astonishing.
As it is said, to blame a teacher
for the deeply ingrained ignorance
and resistance to learning of his students is like blaming a doctor in a
leper colony for the diseases of his
We note the career ladder proposed by the board presumably
on the recommendations of school
administrators. Can anyone be surprised that the upper rungs of that
ladder and its monetary rewards
focus on the teachers enhancement
of administrative practice? That
this turns the most highly rewarded
teachers into those who become
lackeys of administration?
Those upper rungs, astonishingly, have nothing to do with the
improvement of teacher skills in the
Forgive me. Perhaps I am nave.
But isnt that what teachers are for?
That means that over the years a
teacher by a constant improvement
of her skills can approach genius as
a teacher of children and never be
rewarded for that wonderful skill!
That is appalling.
I speak here as a retired teacher.

I speak as one whose evaluations

routinely read exceeds expectations, the highest evaluation possible. I have no ball left in this
game. But I will tell you in plain
terms because of Act 10, among
other things, the treatment of this
profession in Stoughton, McFarland
and now all of Wisconsin is nothing
short of shabby.
I will also tell you also in plain
terms, if this state and this country
truly wants to improve education
it will have to give up on all bandaid measures, like constant testing,
and adopt something like the Finnish way of teacher training and
respect for the professionals that
emerge from that training and practice (Finnish educators do not allow
student testing at all, except at the
very end) that a true, long lasting,
reform will be effective, but will
take a generation and be expensive.
Theres no getting around it.
And given the willful anti-intellectualism of our cultureone
of our presidents boasted of having read one book; one governor
refused to finish college and began
his gubernatorial career by attacking teachers I am not very confident of any success here.
Prove me wrong.
Steve Fortney

Thanks for helping turtle cross the road

My husband and I enjoy living
out in the country along with all
its wildlife.
Recently, while on the road
home, I noticed a car pulled over
to the side with the flashers on.
When I stopped to see if I could
assist, the driver said that she
was just helping a turtle across
the road to safety, something my

spouse and myself always do.

It really made my day to see that
there are others around who care
about our outdoor friends as much
as we do and wanted to thank her
for her kindness.

planned for Sept. 27

Doctors told John Anderson he had three months to

live last December, when he
received a diagnosis of stage
4 colon cancer. Although
the 48-year-old longtime
Stoughton resident has beaten those odds, two surgeries
since then have been unsuccessful because there are too
many cancer cells.
His wife, Kathi Anderson,
and stepdaughter Courtney
Normington, a sophomore
and cheerleader at Stoughton
High School, are planning
a benefit on Sept. 27 to help
with the bills and help them
keep their home.
The family only has one
income right now since John
has not been able to work
since his diagnosis, and his
short-term disability ran out
in March.
Kathi said even though her
husband is weak, he plans to
be present at the benefit this
weekend, which will be held
from 1-6 p.m. Sunday at the
VFW post at 301 Cottage
Grove Road in Madison.
The family-friendly event
will include food, DJ and

Be Kind to Everyone
Its easy to be nice to those who are
nice to us. We are designed to respond to
a smile with a smile, and only the hardest
heart is unmoved by the tears of someone who is genuinely suffering. The real
challenge for most of us is to be kind to
someone who is attacking us, or belittling
us, or treating us with contempt. Then we
have to fight against our animal nature
and resist the urge to hit back physically or
verbally, and nothing is more natural than
to hit back when we are being attacked.
But nothing is more Christian than to
turn the other cheek and to counter harsh
words and abuse with kindness and love.
Contrary to the wisdom of the world, turning the other cheek is not weakness but in
reality requires great strength of character
and long-suffering patience. Our duty as
Christians is to be kind to everyone, not
just those who are kind to us. There is no
great merit in being kind to those who are
kind to us. The real test is whether you can
be kind to those who mistreat you. One
way to do this is to realize that everyone is
struggling. There is a popular quote these
days, often misattributed to Plato, which
says it very nicely: Be kind, for everyone
you meet is fighting a hard battle. Indeed,
everyone struggles, and we should look
upon everyone as needing our help, even if
they may not know it.
Christopher Simon,
Metro News Service

John Wilde (1919-2006)

was a surrealist artist who
resided in Evansville and
spent the last 40 years of his
life in Cooksville. He will be
honored with a program and
art exhibit, Wildes Wildes: A Very Private Collection on Sept. 29, at Creekside Place in Evansville.
Graeme Reid, director of
collections and exhibitions
for the Museum of Wisconsin Art, will give the presentation at 6:30 p.m., with an
open bar and informal reminiscences by friends, relatives and associates of Wilde and his late wives, Helen
and Shirley, at 5:45 p.m.
The exhibit includes
around 80 paintings and
drawings, most of which
had hung or been stored in
John and Shirley Wildes
Cooksville area home. Many
of the sketches and paintings depict John himself, as
well as Shirley. There are
also framed pieces of their
beloved corgis Banjo,
Bugs, Beans and Bryn.
John Wilde served on the
Town of Porter Planning and
Zoning Committee and the
Historic Cooksville Trust,
Inc. He was also a respected
professor at UW-Madison

Since Johns death in
2006 and his wife Shirleys
death earlier this year, their
children gathered most of
the artwork that their parents
retained in their home for
themselves and provided the
collection to the MOWA for
this unique exhibit, which
had been on display there
from June to early September.
Six of his works are on
permanent display at UWMadisons Chazen Museum,
and his painting 15 Cooksvillians (1996) has been
donated to the Chazen. His

print 15 Cooksvillians

Junior Sarah Benoy supplied the Stoughton girls tennis with its lone win in a 6-1
loss at Madison Edgewood on Monday.
And while the loss at Quann Park certainly stung, Benoy and the Vikings now must
turn their attention to this weekends Badger Conference tournament where they are
hoping to enact a bit of revenge against the
Benoy defeated junior Jessica Inman 6-0,
6-3 at No. 1 singles to finish the Badger
Conference regular season undefeated.
With the win, head coach Ryan Reischel
said Benoy all but wrapped up the No. 1
seed at 1 singles come this weekend at
Nielsen Tennis Stadium.
It looks like Sarah and Meg Mathison
from Waunakee will be the two girls in that
discussion, Reischel said. Megs a nice
player, but Sarah has some good indirect
wins over Meg, which I think will give her
the edge.

Benoys two losses this season have come

against top-level talent, dropping her first
match of the season against Sun Prairies
Dao Sysouvanh, who was the eighth-seed at
state last year, and Division 2 state champion Claire Czerwonka of Kenosha St. Joseph
Catholic Academy.
Its really exciting to see how far Ive
come, Benoy said. Ive made tons of
improvement, going from 1 doubles as
freshman to No. 1 singles the past two seasons.
It was really nice to be able to reach state
and win a match last year. Im hoping to
earn a seed as Ive already beaten one seeded player from last season already.
With such high aspirations this season,
Benoy admitted its been difficult at times
to focus on the match at hand and not look

Vikings stymied by Warriors

Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

A pair of special teams mistakes and

a poor tackling on a wet and stormy
Friday evening led to a 35-0 loss by
Stoughton Friday in a Badger Conference crossover game at Waunakee.
I thought we looked sluggish in the
first half and once again we struggled
to tackle consistently, head coach Dan
Prahl said. Between that and letting
Waunakee play with a short field for
most of the game, we really dug ourselves into an early hole.
Already trailing 14-0 through two

quarters, Stoughton special teams saw

Waunakee block a punt to setup a second Sam Musso touchdown run.
Musso rushed for 60 yards and
accounted for two of the Warriors five
rushing touchdowns. Waunakee racked
up a total of 221 yards on the ground.
Sophomore running back Javian
Dayne capped the scoring as he ripped
off an 18-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Waunakee is a great program, but I
like where were at, Prahl said. Were
getting better each week.
Offensively, we just need to sustain

Edgewood, she said. That and
working a ton with my dad in the offseason has really made me confident
in my play.
Stoughton was close at two of the
other three singles flights as junior
Gigi Barberino and sophomore Paige
Halverson both forced third sets.
Barberino dropped her No. 3
singles match 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 against
senior Reilly Gerhart. Halverson won
her first set against senior No. 4 singles player Evy Stein only to drop the
next two 3-6, 6-2, 6-4.
Junior Anna Nelson fell 6-1, 6-0 to
Brita Horde at No. 2 singles.
Stoughton also found itself in a
dogfight at No. 1 and 3 doubles, but
were unable to pull either out.
Juniors Payton Kahl and Kendra
Halverson dropped their first set at
No. 1 doubles, but fought back in the
second in a 6-2, 7-5 loss.
Senior No. 3 doubles players Carrie Aide and Marissa Robson fell 7-6

(4), 7-5 against senior Cosette Smith

and junior Grace Drake.
Senior Holly Brickson and junior
Sydney Johnson lost 6-4, 6-1 against
seniors Jojo Munns and Sarah Peterson at No. 2 doubles.
I think theres always a bit of a
mental block when youre not used to
beating a team, Reischel said. Its
something we continue to try and
work on in practice, but you really
cant replicate the big momentum.
Theres a lot of girls on our
team that feel a lot of pressure in
season, and I try to get them to
go play matches in the offseason.
You have to teach yourself to win.
Were good practice and match players, but against teams we havent
had much success against, we need to
believe we can.
It was a similar mentality a couple
of weeks ago when the Vikings got
Brookfield Central and Kenosha St.
Joseph at the Stoughton Invite.
We had limited success, but we
lost some matches where we were

the better team just because we didnt

buy in.
The Badger Conference tournament gets underway at 9 a.m. Friday
and Saturday.
The girls know they can battle
with Edgewood (ranked second in
Division 2) and Waunakee (ranked
fifth), Reischel said. We get a couple of days before we get to do it all
over again. Were only going to have
more success down the road when we
keep putting ourselves in those positions.
Even though Stoughton fell 6-1,
taking Edgewood to three sets at a
couple of flights and playing well at
a couple others has Reischel excited
about conference.
If tonights performance didnt
give the girls a little more confidence
than they had entering the match,
I dont know what will, he said. I
hope we can tonights match and utilize it Saturday morning when we see
Edgewood or Waunakee in a lot the
semifinal matches.

Innovation: Business to expand to rural 16 acres between Waterloo and Marshall

Continued from page 1
Yahara River.
She and her employee
and assistant, Dan M., harvest the seeds by hand and
sell them for as much as
$2,000 per pound to Taylor
Creek Nursery, a wholesale
seed producer and distributor in Brodhead. The nursery helped Romine launch
her business by guiding
decision-making about
what plants to grow and
seeds to harvest (purple
cone flowers, wild bergamot, golden rod, marsh
milkweed and various sedges) and also donating and
delivering 500 larger plants
to the effort.
Romines mother,
Andrea, told the Hub that
Brittany has flourished in
her business as a person.
Its given her a sense of
accomplishment and pride,
Andrea said, and she thinks
the Developmental Disabilities Network and a host
of other organizations and
individuals deserve credit
for seeing her daughters
This whole business
is based on thinking outside the box, Andrea said.

What its about

If you go

Local social innovators and storytellers will bring

surprising innovations to light through stories,
video, banners, song and conversation. A reception
from 4-6:30 p.m. Sept. 30, will include comments
by County Executive Joe Parisi and other Madison
leaders, live music and a special video documenting
Dane County innovations that foster an inclusive
and thriving community.
And thats kind of what
theyre celebrating at this
event thinking of what
can we do thats not standard because people with
disabilities are not standard.
If you just try to shove
them in these holes, theyre
not successful.
Brittanys micro-enterprise business has been
such a success that shes
expanding it, recently
accepting offer on a rural
property between Waterloo
and Marshall. It has a house
and barn on about 16 acres,
where Brittany will be able
to increase her production
and profits.
Some of the land is very
wet, which is good because
she grows wetland plants,
and those are the one that
tend to have the high value

seeds on them, Andrea

She and Brittany are
waiting for the Farm Service Agency to approve the
funding to help finance the
purchase of the farm.
Andrea said Britt and
her older sister, Shameka,
25, are planning to move
out of her home and live
together on the new property. Andrea adopted the two
girls when they were ages
4 and 5, after the pair had
endured 13 foster placements before I got them,
she said. So they are
incredibly resilient.
Brittany graduated from
Stoughton High Schools
transition program in 2010.

the stress to your back. 1. Complete a short warm up prior to gardening including
a brisk 10 min walk followed by stretching back and limbs. 2. Change positions
and activities frequently. 3. Avoid bending over at the back. Instead kneel down or
sit on garden stools or use raised garden beds. 4. Listen to your body. If you start
feeling ache or stiffness, take a break and stretch out. If you have been leaning
forward, stand up and stretch back by leaning backwards. 5. When you have to
