‘47 million Americans who are uninsured’
Senator Russ Feingold made history in Townsend on August 31, 2009. By holding his Oconto County lis-
tening session there, he became the highest-ranking public official to appear in the County’s northernmost
township. Two hundred people packed the Townsend Town Hall for a chance to ask questions and share
comments. Most agreed something must be done to address runaway health care costs and the 47 million
Americans who are uninsured.

Everyone who attended was asked to fill out a slip if they wished to speak. Senator Feingold then called on
his constituents to stand and address both him and the audience from their places. The exchange was lively
but polite. Only one man did not follow the procedure. He approached the podium aggressively, and when
he got into the Senator’s “space”, the audience told him in no uncertain terms to “Sit Down!” As one at-
tendee put it, “The guy was definitely an outsider who was unaware that Townsend doesn’t do rude.”

About two-thirds of those attending were in favor of reforming health care by adding a “public option”;
the rest ranged from hesitant to hostile to the idea of adding more to the federal government’s already full
plate and the ballooning national deficit. Other questions covered a wide variety of topics: the environment, farming, education, NAFTA,
Afghanistan, pharmaceutical ads, campaign financing reform, and the trade imbalance. Senator Feingold complimented the crowd, telling
them the turnout was much larger than he usually gets in Milwaukee County. “Townsend is truly a beautiful place,” he said in closing. “I
have to say I am very impressed. People here ask intelligent, thoughtful questions, and they do it in a concise and respectful manner.”

When Russ Feingold first ran for a Senate seat in 1992, he promised to hold listening sessions in every Wisconsin county every year.
Unlike some politicians, Feingold has managed to keep his word for 17 years running. He is the poorest of the 100 Senators in Washing-
ton, with a net worth under $250,000. This would suggest that he has not used his almost two decades in Washington to enrich himself.
He is considered a maverick in the tradition of Bill Proxmire, an independent voice who is not afraid to speak truth to power.

Crandon Memorial Vigil to be held October 7th

The Crandon Memorial Garden gazebo is looking really nice. The 2nd anniversary date of Oct. 7th, a small candlelight vigil will be
held. Anyone can come and light a candle, and participate in a short prayer and song

There are still many things to get done, but hopefully most of it will be completed
before winter. We have had so many volunteers doing different things to help us
complete it. I think our children sent us a bunch of angels to help with this. One
man in particular is Gary Mueller, has been coordinating EVERYTHING and get-
ting contractors and volunteers to do what they can. I really think he is an angel
from the kids. Our memorial garden will be BEAUTIFUL when finished, we can’t
wait until it is complete and there for everyone to see. It has been a long road to get
this far, but it will NEVER get rid of our horrible pain we feel everyday. This me-
morial will be something beautiful in the place of something that was horribly ugly.

Thanks you,
Lee Smith

by Kathleen Marsh
Local writers gathered at the meeting of Up North Authors Circle (UNAC) held September 9 at the Lakewood Library. The group
welcomed new member Gus Knollenberg from Oshkosh who has a vacation home on
Bradley Lake (west of Wabeno). Gus declared himself a novice, but got many compli-
ments when he read an essay that was published in an Oshkosh newspaper where he
served as a community columnist.

Townsend author Kathleen Marsh addressed the trials and tribulations of the publishing
process, noting as an example the issues surrounding the publication of infamous Iraq
Abu Grahib prison guard Lyndee England’s biography. “Even with the help of a publi-
cist, an editor, a biographer, and an agent, Ms. England’s tell-all has only sold a few
hundred copies,” Marsh noted. “Unfortunately, sharing even that tiny amount of reve-
nue is being hotly disputed with charges and countercharges of fraud and deceit.” Mem-
bers agreed that the world of book publishing can be a confusing and disturbing place.

Zach Mason read another excerpt from his work “The Fuhrer’s Secret.” The group con-
tinues to comment favorably on Zach’s ability to weave historical details into his work
while telling a first-rate story with realistic dialogue and credible characters.

The next meeting of UNAC is scheduled for Wednesday, October 14, at the Lakewood
Library, from 5:00-7-00 p.m. New members are always welcome to attend.

A Word or Two From Dr. Jason

The Secret of Slim Kids
A study of 5,500 children who agreed to wear a motion sensor device showed that those who exercised
more were less likely to be obese and that short bursts of intense activity seemed to be the most helpful.

Children who did 15 minutes a day of moderate exercise, equivalent to a brisk walk, were 50 percent less
likely than inactive children to be obese; the research
was reported in the Public Library of Science journal
PLoS Medicine in March, 2007.

Andy Ness of the University of Bristol and colleagues

wrote - "Our data suggest that higher intensity physi-
cal activity may be more important than total activ-

Chris Riddoch of Britain's Bath University, who

worked on the study commented - "This study pro-
vides some of the first robust evidence on the link
between physical activity and obesity in children. We
know that diet is important, but what this research
tells us is that we must not forget about activity. It's been really surprising to us how even small
amounts of exercise appear to have dramatic results."

The less the children exercised, the more likely they were to be obese, the study found. These associa-
tions suggest even a modest increase of 15 minutes
of moderate and vigorous physical activity might
result in an important reduction in the prevalence of
overweight and obesity," the researchers wrote.

Small changes made now can make a big difference

in the lives of your children - teach them healthy
habits that can last a lifetime. A quick game of
catch, a short bike ride or shooting a few hoops
everyday is all it takes. A little more activity and
some healthy whole food snacks can make all the
difference in the world.

Historic Logging Camp Serves First Meal in 82 Years to Guests

Forty people dressed like loggers crowded into the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp Museum in Lakewood on September 16 to “Live Like
a Lumberjack” for one night. It proved to be a memorable evening of fun; music, drinks, food and laugher. The evening included tours
by Museum Director Bob Brown, cocktails in McCauslin Golf Course Clubhouse,
dinner in the Cook Shack, and a presentation by Christopher Goetz, who not only
served as “Camp Cook” but performed his critically acclaimed one man show after

Dan Deschinny from Laona brought his banjo and Ray Ehlinger from Wabeno
brought his guitar and harmonica to add a musical flourish as they entertained the
lumberjacks with tunes of the times. Each lumberjack received a nickname, as al-
most all of them had one, which added to the spirit of the evening. All the proceeds
from the event went to the

mother’s death, Evelyn M. DeCleene Brickner, 88, Suring, died peacefully at Woodland Village in Suring. She was born in Klon-
dike on October 21, 1920 to the late Anthony and Johanna (Reynders) DeCleene. Evelyn married Marcellus Brickner on January
28, 1939 at St. Wenceslaus in Klondike. He preceded her in death on June 30, 1991. “The best gift I gave to my children,” Evelyn
stated, “was to have married their father.”

While in her fifties, Evelyn completed her GED, trained as a nurses’ aid, and then worked at St. Joseph Hospital in Milwaukee.
Evelyn sang beautifully and reveled in reciting poetry that she had memorized in her youth. She was always interested in people.
Her spirit of generosity was manifest in giving to others whatever she had to offer them. It was then that she was the happiest.
Very involved in St. Michael’s parish community of Suring, she was an organizer for funeral dinners and a great baker. She dearly
loved her family, and was proud of her nine children as well as her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Halloween—Oct. 31, 2009

The observance of Halloween, which dates back to Celtic rituals thousands of years ago, has long been associated
with images of witches, ghosts, devils and hobgoblins. Over the years, Halloween customs and rituals have
changed dramatically. Today, many of the young and young at heart take a more light-spirited approach. They
don scary disguises or ones that may bring on smiles when they go door to door for treats, or attend or host a
Halloween party.
Cheri (Cheryl) Lee Nolan, age 64, of Appleton, was welcomed into the Lord's kingdom while surrounded by her loved ones on
Saturday afternoon, September 19, 2009. Cheri was born September 7, 1945 in Green Bay, to the late Carroll
and Angeline (Reiland) Nolan. She was formerly married to Jerry Endres, of Sherwood.
Cheri cherished the simple things in life; a good game of Scrabble, playing Bingo, going to the movies with
her good friend Josh, and spending Sundays with her BFF, Jenny. Where ever she went she had her Diet Coke
in hand. Most of all, Cheri treasured the relationships she had with her loving family and friends. She was an
amazing mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother. She demonstrated and taught everyone that knew her un-
conditional love, acceptance, grace, and true friendship.
Cheri is survived by her three children: Scott Endres, Maple Grove, MN, Randy (Cindy) Endres, Appleton,
and Heather (David) Gryboski, Townsend, WI; nine grandchildren: Courtney, Alex, Jessica, Matt, Trentyn,
Megan, Thomas, Abbey, and Molly; three brothers: Robert (Rita) Nolan, Weyauwega, WI, Gary Nolan, Nee-
nah, and David (Chris) Nolan, Cleveland, OH; a sister: Laurie (Randy) Miller, Fremont; nieces, nephews, other relatives, and
many dear and wonderful friends.
In addition to her birth parents, Cheri is preceded in death by her step-father, Loyal Leach, and an infant daughter, Wendy.
A Funeral Service for Cheri will be held at 12:00 NOON Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at WICHMANN TRI-COUNTY

Our Mission Was To Help Our Community… And We Did It Again!

“Our mission at Nobles Chiropractic Wellness Center is to assist as many people in our community as possible with personal service,
compassion and the chiropractic principles of wellness.”

Well, we emphasized compassion in August once again and held our 3rd Annual School Supplies Drive
called “Pack a Backpack”. Held throughout August, our drive was a great success once again. We
know that many teachers dip into their own pockets many times when they see a student in need, so we
decided to help once again. So many people helped with our noble cause and we would like to thank
the Lakewood Supervalu and Nicolet Pharmacy, for letting us set up our boxes as drop off points, it
was greatly appreciated and we thank them for their help.

We would especially like to than our patients, friends, and anonymous donors, without them we not
have had the successful drive that we did. With all their help we were able to supply the Wabeno Ele-
mentary and High School with many packed back packs and miscellaneous school supplies.

Our 3rd annual drive was very successful, and this is no wonder when we live in such a caring commu-
nity. Dr. Nobles delivered our “packed” backpacks to the elementary school principal, Mr. Jay Weck-
ler, on August 26th . Mr. Weckler was very thankful and surprised to see the number of backpacks we
had ready for distribution!

Because our drive has been so successful and the backpacks are so appreciated, we intend on holding it again next year as long as there is
a need in our community.

Again, Dr. Jason and his staff extend a round of applause to everyone who helped, thank you so very much.

Feed the Wild Birds

Birds bring a welcome dash of color, flash of motion and splash of
sound into our lives, particularly during the
gloom of winter. But winter is one of the most
difficult times in much of North America for
birds to survive in the wild.
Natural food supplies have been depleted and
ponds are thick with ice, making it difficult to
forage in the wild. That's why February was
named Wild Bird Feeding Month, to call at-
tention to the birds' need for food and water.
Consider that:
• A typical backyard bird weighs less than two nickels
• Birds spend most of their waking hours searching for food
• In below-freezing temperatures, snow is the only water
birds may find
• Birds can use up 20% of their body weight overnight just
keeping warm
• Like the mailman, they're outside in sleet, snow, wind and
The National Bird-Feeding Society says to offer suet as an extra
energy entree and replenish the water in your birdbath.

Pine Needle Quilters Report

At our regular meeting on Sept. 21, we will have the usual raffle of fat quarters, and distribution of Secret sister gifts. Laurie
Schoenebeck will be doing a presentation on using Paintstiks to embellish your fabrics. She will show some basic techniques such
as stenciling and rubbings. Remember how much fun it was when you were a kid and you did rubbings of leaves and things using
your color crayons? Paintstiks are almost as simple as that, yet the results can be very beautiful. This is a way to add your own per-
sonal touch to your quilting projects.

On Sept. 16, 9am we will begin working on the raffle quilt for our 2010 quilt show. If you have signed up to help paper piece on the
quilt (or if you didn't sign up, you are still welcome to come). Remember to bring your sewing items, a sack lunch and coordinating

A reminder to those of you who have entered the "Home is Where the Heart is Challenge", that it is to be completed before our guild
Christmas party, which is scheduled for Monday Dec.7th. Finished quilts will be displayed at our 2010 quilt show.

The Oct. sewing session will be dedicated to working on community service quilts. It begins at 1:30p.m. at the Breed Town Hall on
Monday, Oct.5th. Bring your tools and a lunch. If you do not want to bring your sewing machine, there are quilts to be tied, and
other tasks to be done. Each month there will be a pattern for a 12-inch block and there will be little brown bags with fabric enough
to make two blocks. Take a bag home with you and sew the two blocks. Pin your name to one of the blocks, as the second block
will go toward making a community service quilt. Each month someone will go home with some blocks, and you will know who
sewed each block.

There will be a quilt show committee meeting at 5pm on October 19, before the regular October meeting. .Anyone who is wanting to
head up a committee such as the demonstrations, program, publicity, white glove, sponsors, hospitality, admissions/information,
quilt entries, decoration, vendors and put up/take down are in need of attending. A reminder to those that purchased the Birchwood
Lane panel at our 2008 quilt show. This challenge will be due at our October Meeting so you might want to pull it out of your stash
and get it started.

On September 21, 1:30p.m., we will have a Pinwheel Class by Sheila Hixon. Members who signed up for the class will find items
needed listed on our web site.

Our regular meetings are held the third Mon. of each month at 7pm, at the Breed Town Hall and Community Center. Our sewing
session is the first Mon. of the month at 1:30 p.m. at the same location. If you are interested in joining our fun group, you will be
made welcome.

October is Healthy Lung Month by Bonnie Vrchota


The flu season is coming early this year. Anyone with an underlying illness that makes breathing difficult, are at a
much greater risk to get the flu. The seasonal flu vaccine doesn’t protect against the type A H1N1 swine flu,
even though it immunizes against a seasonal type A H1N1 virus. If you’ve had multiple vaccinations, or were once
infected with an H1N1 virus, you might have a better immune response to swine flu than younger people with
less exposure to vaccines and/or flu. If you were born before 1957 you might have some degree of protection
against swine flu because an ancestor of the swine flu bug was in seasonal circulation. Those aged 6 months - 19
yrs, pregnant women, adults 50 & over, residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities, anyone with a
chronic medical condition, health-ca re workers and people in close proximity to high-risk individuals should get
a seasonal flu shot now. In mid-October the swine flu vaccine will be out. For the swine flu vaccine, federals
officials have added 19-24 yrs. Older adults have been moved down the swine flu list. For the vast majority the
virus will be mild and most people will recover within five to seven days. Symptoms of swine flu are similar to
the symptoms of seasonal flu and include a fever (more than 100.4) and two or more of the following symptoms:
cough, sore throat, aching muscles, sneezing, fatigue, runny nose, & lack of appetite.
