From the Editor-news and notes


Since Hurricane Sandy landed on the U.S. east coast on Oct. 29th, the nation was shocked and sadden on December 14th by the loss of so many young children and teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. The young mentally ill man shot and killed the students and teachers as he wandered the school. Today in memory of them all we have on page 17 a ribbon which you may cut out and tape to a book, a window or wherever you would like to show that you remember them too. Rainbow House: Toiletries are needed for men, women, children and infants who find shelter at the Rainbow House Shelter. Please drop your donation at Tantalizing Tanning, Pour Haus or at Timberline Breakfast Restaurant. This is one way we can help them to feel better. Get Well Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors. Richard PIntsch who is in the hospital resting. UPCOMING EVENTS; See page 19 for all of the monthly events scheduled.

The Christmas Party for the Nicolet AARP Chapter 1191 was well attended by 61 members who enjoyed an evening of fun and fellowship at Waubee Lodge in Lakewood. Members brought gifts of food to be given to the Christian Food Pantry in Townsend. The dinner with a main course of prime rib and chicken was excellent. With a festive atmosphere and music provided by Robert Mengel the AARP members enjoyed the singing of Christmas carols and some dancing. Several new officers and board members were officially sworn in to their new positions. Karen Prueter took over the position of President for the Nicolet AARP Chapter 1191 and Jim Kingsbury is the new Vice President. Mike Grotefend, a representative from AARP Wisconsin, swore in the new board members. Mr. Grotefend read a letter from the AARP National Office which recognized the Nicolet AARP Group for forty years as an active AARP group providing service to its members and the community.

One of the questions that have been heard is Why would anyone do this? Several of the Christmas trees were decorated by volunteer organizations, families and friends who live in the areas in and surrounding Riverview. No one has come forward with any tips or information regarding who it was either one or more persons who was involved in the destruction of the trees. For some of those who decorated a tree it has become a first time event or one that they have been doing since the town offered to the public to bring holiday cheer to passers by. If you know who did this or have some information, please contact the Town of Riverview.

Did you know that vitamins contain synthetic vitamin powders, even if listed as natural. The pharmaceutical companies make most of these vitamin powders. So, what's the difference between natural and synthetic? Natural brands don't contain artificial chemical colors (a good thing). Synthetic vitamins work pretty good. A vitamin made in a lab can be labeled natural. Almost all brands need a filler to hold the pill together. Magnesium stearate, stearic acid, sodium citrate, dicalcium phosphate, cellulose and silica are among the harmless, standard fillers. The real question is, does the vitamin prevent and cure disease. I think vitamins fill a need. We can't possibly get ALL of our vitamins from the foods we eat. Americans typically eat only one-third of the recommended daily intake (three servings instead of nine) of fruits and vegetables. Fresh fruits and veggies lose some of their vitamins as soon as they are picked, during shipping, and sit on the store shelves. Canned veggies lose their nutrients during the preservation process, except tomatoes & pumpkin. Frozen fruits & veggies actually contain more vitamins because they are processed at their peak ripeness & flash-frozen, whichs locks in the nutrients. Choose packages marked with a USDA "U.S. Fancy" shield, which designates produce of the best size, shape and color. Steam your veggies to minimize loss of water-soluble vitamins. Eat ripe fruits & veggies that are in-season. Take your vitamins daily. Next month: vitamins to supplement your diet.

The Pine Needle Quilters met Nov. 12, with 31 members and 3 guest. We were reminded of the Christmas Party Dec. 3, at Waters Edge on Andersen Lake. An ornament exchange will be done, and also a gift exchange. If you bring a gift, you will receive one in exchange. The president's challenge is a children's stocking complete with a stuffed animal. These will go to our local hospitals, to be given to children who are either in the hospital during the holidays/ or brought to the emergency room. Also bring a canned or non-perishable item. These will be donated to the food pantry in Townsend. After a short business meeting, there were six short demo's for possible Christmas gifts. Demo's were given by Laurie Schoenebeck, Diana Napier, Joan Hansen, Sandi Liebl, Sheila Hixon, and Deanna Tachick.

Lawrence E. Mauritz, May 27, 1945 - January 6, 2013 age 67, Suring passed away at home on Sunday, January 6, 2013 following a 2 year battle with cancer. He was born May 27, 1945 to the late Lawrence E. and Mildred (Christensen) Mauritz. Larry graduated with the Suring High School Class of 1963. Larry married Linda Westphal on July 3, 1965 at St. Michaels Catholic Church in Suring. He did construction work in Milwaukee until an accident forced him to retire in 2006. Larry enjoyed his mini farm in the Town of Breed and enjoyed traveling to South Dakota and Virginia. Larry is survived by his wife, Linda of Suring; 2 daughters, Lisa (Cody) Schaal of Mountain, Lynn (Jack) Sperberg of Mountain; 2 sons, Lawrence (Lanita) Mauritz III of Mountain, Lance (Deborah) Mauritz of Milwaukee; 2 sisters, Sharon Davis of Green Bay, Linda (Richard) Jankowski of Brillion; 19 grandchildren and 5 great-grand children. Larry was preceded in death by his granddaughter. Gathering of family and friends will be held at Gruetzmacher Funeral Home in Suring on Saturday, January 12, 2013 from 11 AM until the memorial service at 2 PM with Father David Barrett officiating.

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam


Got Stress?
A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, How heavy is this glass of water? Answers called out ranged from 20 grams to 500 grams. The lecturer replied, The absolute weight doesnt matter it depends on how long you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, thats not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, Ill have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, youll have to call an ambulance. In each case, its the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. He continued, And thats the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens with us all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we wont be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When were refreshed, we can carry on with the burden. So before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Dont carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens youre carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax pick them up later after youve rested. Life is short enjoy it! Society has subtly trained us that our security and wellbeing depend on vigilance. Our lives have become so complex, that we have a constant din in our minds about what we need to do, what we should have already done, what we want to do but havent the time or resources to do its a jumble of intentions that heaps stress on top of feelings of lack. Some stresses come from issues that need to be confronted, resolved, forgiven or just moved past, but some stresses are ongoing, as a byproduct of daily life. Smart, healthy people take some time to clear their minds, whether through meditation, an absorbing hobby, devoting time to family, ethnicity or spirituality, or simply decompressing, alone or with friends. The absence of some respite or break knocks us out of our natural rhythms, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Learn to create balance by spelling yourself occasionally, and not letting your challenges consume you. In The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Steven Coveys seventh habit is called sharpening the saw and it simply refers to the concept of resting and rejuvenating periodically, so you can bring fresh energy and drive to your tasks at hand. Youll work more effectively and get more done if you just take a breather every now and then.

The Wabeno Elementary Student Leadership Group sponsored a food drive during the week of November 12-16. The food drive had a twist; each item brought in had different point values. The participation was GREAT!!! There were over 750 items collected for the Christian Food Pantry in Townsend. The grade with the most points at the end of the week was awarded ice cream sundaes. In the end it was the fourth graders with the most points! Great job to all of the classes. It is wonderful to see the students work together to make a difference in our community. Great way to STEP IT UP WABENO ELEMENTARY!!!

The Baldwin company is no longer in business and repair parts are no longer available. Quotations were requested from three organ suppliers and four sound system suppliers. Our committee went to several different churches to listen to each individual organ and associated sound system. After bid analysis and evaluation, we contracted for a sound system and an Allen organ with Brookfield Organ and Piano Co. in December 2011. All equipment is American made. The sound system installation began in mid-February 2012, with organ installation completed by March 2012. In November, 2011, we started our Organ Fundraising Drive to pay the approximately $50,000 cost. Generous donations by the congregation raised the total amount needed by December 2012. We paid off the total required without having to borrow money and pay interest.
