The city of Medford will pay up to $1.

5 mil-
lion for road and utility improvements as part
of a developers agreement with a Medford-
based mink food processing rm.
After more than 40 minutes in closed ses-
sion at a special city council meeting Monday
evening, aldermen came back into open ses-
sion and unanimously approved the 10-page
developers agreement with Matador America
LLC. Aldermen Greg Knight and Pat DeChat-
elets were absent. The special meeting was
needed to allow the company to proceed with
plans to break ground this week on an approxi-
mately 127,000 square foot building located in
the city industrial park south of CTH O.
Jorn Mogensen signed the agreement on
Sept. 26 as manager for the company. State
records indicate Matador America was or-
ganized on February 18 of this year. State
nancial records also list Mogensen as the
primary agent for A&M Dittrich Mink Ranch,
American Feeds, Norpol USA, and Van Ansem
USA. All the companies are related to the mink
Under terms of the developers agreement,
the city will sell the 10-acre parcel to Matador
America at a cost of $1,500 an acre. This pur-
chase price will be refunded to Matador as a
business incentive when the project is com-
Matador America will be
responsible for the cost of

North Breeze Dairy developers have halted their
current attempts for a high capacity well in the town
of Little Black by withdrawing the application from the
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Taylor County Land Conservationist Ashly Steinke
said he received news of the move earlier this week. The
request to DNR ofcials to withdraw the application
said North Breeze Dairy planned to review its options
for developing the large dairy farm in southeastern
Taylor County. The DNR response said withdrawing
the application means developers would have to submit
a new application and pay the $500 application fee again
to proceed. North Breeze Dairy was originally planning
a spring 2015 construction schedule at the farm site.
Brian Gerrits, chief executive ofcer and chief nan-
cial ofcer of Breeze Dairy Group said in a statement
on Wednesday, We have withdrawn our high-capacity
well permit application as a result of an ongoing dis-
crepancy between WDNR and our professional engi-

Time Federal Savings Bank will cele-
brate its 80th anniversary this week with
a visit from a direct link to the earliest
days of the nancial institution. Ursula
Scharrschmidt, the daughter of founder
L.D. Russell, and the widow of longtime
president Bill Scharrschmidt, stopped by
the Medford branch on Monday morning
and plans to return Friday for the last
day of the celebration.
Ursula was a teenager when her fa-
ther began Medford Federal Savings and
Loan. He was cashier of the First Na-
tional Bank of Medford for a number of
years until it closed in 1932, at the height
of the national banking crisis and Great
Depression. Despite the hard times, he
was approached to lead the new venture.
He convinced the required 25 investors
to believe in the savings and loan, and it
was ofcially started on October 22, 1934
with 30 subscribers and $25,000 in assets.
The business was rst operated at the
courthouse before moving to the Russell
home. Its assets grew to $300,000 by 1940.
The bank closed in 1932 and he was
part of that. The Federal Loan Bank had
condence in him and I think it restored
his condence, Ursula said. Dad did
not have a high school education. He
quit as a sophomore to work for the rail-
road. He was quite young when he went
to work in California and the National
Bank called him back in 1914.
He was an only child who married a
school teacher when he was 38 years old.
His independent life would then be lled
with four daughters. He raised all four
of us to be independent. We all ended up
as accountants, even though we started
with four different backgrounds, Ursula
Ursula said as a 17-year-old high
school graduate, she couldnt wait to
leave the small town of Medford in 1936.
She went to business college and found
jobs in Milwaukee, California, and Ash-
land. I was a teenager. I had more im-
portant things to do, Ursula said of her
role in the founding of the venerable in-
Her father, Lyman Davis, a name rare-
ly used by the nancial pioneer who pre-
ferred L.D., was the only employee when
his wife, and Ursulas mother, was killed
in a 1940 automobile-train accident. Ur-
sula had a 12-year-old sister at home, and
she returned to help raise her, manage
the Russell home, and become the next
employee. The business was conducted
out of their home and her adding ma-
chine was a piece of furniture where she
stood to operate it while guring interest
with just a pencil and her brain.
Ursulas memories came Monday dur-
ing an interview in the new headquarters
building in Medford. I think Dad would
be really proud of what it has become,
she said. He thought Bill would be bet-
ter than him at the business.
Bill Scharrschmidt died on April 28
this year at the age of 92. He remained in-
volved in the health of the organization
he led for so many years. Ursulas father
also worked until he was 91.
She married Bill Scharrschmidt in
1946 after his outstanding service in the
United States Army Air Force during
World War II. He was attending the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin for civil engineer-
ing and a weekend marriage was not
working, so she left her job and moved
to Madison. Her sister, Nancy Doriot, be-
came the third employee of the nancial
Ursula said a lifetime of solid nancial
planning, including putting savings rst,
was always a value Bill cherished. Bill
lived his own life that way, she said.
We started on the G.I. Bill and even then
we put $10 every month into savings. He
taught me the value of savings, but oh,
I wanted to
buck him
and spend
The stay
in Madison would be short lived as L.D.
contacted Bill in November 1947 for a
meeting. They drove home and her father
offered Bill a job with the organization
which would eventually lead to running
it. By December 1, they decided Medford
would be a good place to raise a family
and Bill began learning the business. Ur-
sula taught him all she knew about the
savings and loan, including how to take
shorthand so he could make notes while
learning from her father.
He knew Bills family and knew it
was a good family. I think he wanted to
keep it in the family, Ursula said. On
the way from the parsonage to the church
on our wedding day, my dad said he was
glad I chose the one I did. He was sold
from the start. He wasnt sold on some of
the men I dated.
Ursula said Bill would sometimes
ask her opinion on decisions and some-
times prefer to make them himself. Her
extensive background in the business
afforded her respect. Debra Kapfhamer,
the current vice president for admin-
istration, remembers the respect, and
committed to skills she rst learned
from Bill and Ursula. When you went
into his ofce to talk about an idea, he
never said it wouldnt work, she said.
The Scharrschmidts daughter, Jini
Mortensen, said he had the same touch
at home. As a kid, he was very patient
with me when I didnt understand some-
thing, she said. They let me choose my
path. I couldnt tell you a good day from a
bad day. He was such an even man.
Respect went a long way for both men
in the business. Your handshake was
your contract. Thats all you needed,
Ursula said of the era.
The business was growing and so was
the Scharrschmidt family. Three more
employees were added while the busi-
ness was still located in the Russell home.
The men eventually planned a new ofce,
including building a wooden model, and
Bob Brehl (now Houtari Construction)
built the Wisconsin Avenue ofce that
was ready for a May 1963 grand opening.
Ursula said if the two men ever had
major disagreements on the business,
they kept their complaints to themselves.
When Dad decided to turn it over, he
backed off and became an employee. I
dont think he ever bucked Bill on a de-
cision, she said. He gave Bill the front
ofce and he took the back ofce.
Ursula went back to work part time
that year and remained until 1984. She
lled a number of roles, including now
guring interest with an electric calcu-
lator. The business grew into other com-
munities, with Phillips being the rst
branch. Opening the Phillips branch
was a good, hard swallow, but we had so
much business there. Once we did it, it
was easier to open the other branches,
Ursula said.
Its known as a solid, conservative,
secure bank, Kapfhamer said. Weve
had the ofce in Phillips for 40 years and
some of the rst customers still have
those accounts.
Expansion was always calculated as
well as the interest and she remembers
long nights for the staff in developing the
client base in Phillips, Wausau, Owen
and Marsheld, as well as maintaining
a growing venture here. The last night
of each month was always a long one as
calculations and bookwork needed to be
The anniversary celebration began
October 1 and continues through Friday
with refreshments, giveaways and draw-
ings for prizes.

America. The city will construct a new roadway in the
industrial park along the east portion of the property at
no cost to Matador America.
The city agreed to pay for a phase-one environmental
assessment to determine the property is clear of environ-
mental contamination, and agreed to clean the property
if contamination was found.
Matador America agreed to install a grease intercep-
tor and to provide an access point at the discharge for
purposes of wastewater analysis sampling, including a
120 volt power supply for a composite sampler.
The citys cost for utilities and road upgrades are es-
timated to be about $1.5 million. This price includes en-
gineering costs. Matador America and the city agreed to
equally cost share the public capital improvements up to
$1 million.
Anything more than that would be the citys respon-
Upon occupancy of the property, Matador America
shall be reimbursed their actual expenditures as a busi-
ness incentive. The nancial obligation of Matador
America is capped at a total of $500,000.
Matador America has a few deadlines in the agree-
ment. The rst is to have the building substantially com-
pleted by Dec. 31, 2016. A second deadline hits at 2017.
Matador America agreed for property tax purposes
the building will have a fair market value of $6 million,
regardless of whether the land and actual improvements
support that value. If Matador America backs off the
project and does not have it built by Dec. 31, 2017, the
property, including all improvements, will revert to the
city unless Matador America makes a one-time payment
to the city in the amount of $500,000 by Dec. 31, 2018.
Future property taxes on the facility will be deter-
mined by the normal assessment process.
Matador America also agreed it would not sell or
transfer the property to any tax exempt entity prior to
Dec. 31, 2032. This corresponds with the closing date for
Tax Incremental District 12.
The parcel where the plant will be located is in TID
12, and the road will be funded through taxes paid on im-
provements in the district.
Mayor Mike Wellner noted the new building will open
the door for additional development on the currently-
vacant industrial park land. He explained the road and
utilities are an investment not just for this project, but
for additional growth in the area in the future.
City coordinator John Fales said the city already has
existing mink food processors located within its bound-
aries, and other than water ow issues on the north side
of the city, has not had any nuisance issues with them.
Wellner said the city had not talked with the company
about the number of jobs that will be created from the
project, but he said he expected there would be jobs gen-
erated with the new plant.

Matador America entered an agreement with the city
of Medford to build a $6 million facility to process mink
food. The plant will be located south of CTH O on a new

Brian Gerrits, chief executive of-
cer and chief nancial ofcer of Breeze
Dairy Group said in a statement on
Wednesday, We have withdrawn our
high capacity well permit application
as a result of an ongoing discrepancy
between WDNR and our professional
engineers over the potential impact to lo-
cal wells around the North Breeze Dairy
site. At this point in time we are review-
ing all of our options to move forward.
We have been anxiously awaiting
the opportunity to become a part of the
amazing, agricultural community. Over
the past several years we have been in-
troduced to many people in the area who
are very supportive of our project which
will bring much needed jobs and revenue
to area communities, the statement con-
Eric Eversberger, water use section
chief at DNR, said it would be several
months before any permit could be pro-
cessed for North Breeze Dairy. Evers-
berger said if an application is submit-
ted for the same location and with the
same factors effecting the process, there
would be issues with a permit being is-
sued. We raised a number of issues re-
garding the potential impact on village
of Stetsonville wells and nearby private
wells, Eversberger said. We brought
up the problems to Mr. Gerrits and gave
them a chance to alleviate the concerns.
We had serious doubts if we could issue
a permit for this site. Mr. Gerrits elected
to withdraw the application. They will
have the same issues at this same site if
they reapply for the permit.
Steinke said he spoke with Gerrits
on Monday. Steinke said options for the
dairy development included looking at
other water conservation options which
could make the plan viable, or selling the
property to another party to develop a
smaller dairy.
Breeze Dairy has been looking at
the town of Little Black site for several
years. The latest plan called for starting
with 2,700 cows, with an expectation to
increase to 4,000 if the water resources
were available. Development of the dairy
hinged on the ability to build a high-
capacity well, while not harming the
output of neighboring wells. The under-
lying bedrock of the area does not read-
ily produce conditions needed for those
I really think science won out, Stein-
ke said. I think the lesson is we have to
utilize science to protect our environ-
ment. If our kids and grandkids cant
swim in our lakes and use water from
our wells, will Taylor County be a better
place to live? By no means is this county
against agriculture or dairy farming, but
we just want to help by being the best
stewards of the environment we can be.
Gerrits statement said North Breeze
Dairy has agreed to be responsible for
neighboring wells in the unlikely event
they are impacted. He said the ve wells
included in the application have a total
pumping capacity of 225 gallons per min-
ute. Gerrits said the rst permit applica-
tion requested a pumping capacity of 140
gallons per minute.
The last permit application only asked
for a pumping capacity of 75 gallons per
minute, (1/3 the total capacity).
Gerrits statement said a high-capaci-
ty well permit is required when a well, or
series of wells, exceeds pumping capaci-
ties of 70 gallons per minute. It is only
ve gallons per minute less than what is
asked for.
He said two pump tests were conduct-
ed (at a rate of 140 gallons per minute,
signicantly higher than the last permit
application rate of 75 gallons) by North
Breeze engineers, with oversight and
involvement by the WDNR. He said data
collected by the tests indicate no impacts
to neighboring wells or the village of
Stetsonville wells, according to a profes-
sional hydrogeologist. He said the data
was reviewed by a second professional
hydrogeologist who agrees with the pro-
fessional opinion of the North Breeze hy-

Bomb scare
A bomb scare at Medford Area Senior High
interrupted classes Wednesday afternoon as stu-
dents, staff and visitors were removed from the
building and sheltered at the Simek Center and
Medford Area Elementary School.
The Medford Police Department would not release vehicles from the senior high
parking lot, so those students who drove to school either had to be picked up or they
rode the school bus home.
Earlier this year, the conclusion of a high school football game was postponed
when an active shooter threat in the community led moving the crowd, teams and
others attending the game into the gymnasium and locker rooms. There was no threat
of violence directed at the school during the incident.
The high school was the scene of a scare in early 2013 when a threat, written on
a bathroom wall, for the next school day was discovered near the end of the school
day. During that incident, the building was searched during the evening and classes
where held under tight security the next day, with many students choosing not to

of 10,620 patrons this summer, an aver-
age of 156 people every day. Total revenue
collected was $23,426.05. In the past, pool
revenue was about $17,000 a year. The
fees collected from pool users only covers
a portion of the total cost of operating and
maintaining the facility.
For alderman Mike Bub, who, as chair-
man of the pool committee, has been a
driving force behind the pool project,
the usage numbers
show the project
was worth the ef-
Bub and other
members of the
committee re-
viewed the year
end report and
looked at projects
for the coming year
at a committee
meeting held Mon-
day afternoon.
Pat Chariton noted
chemical costs for
the pool were also
higher this year.
We were told by Newman Pools to ex-
pect that the rst year, Chariton said. He
noted as the new plaster in the pool cured
this summer, it absorbed some of the
pool chemicals. With the curing process
complete, next summers chemical usage
should be lower.
Committee member Tom Gebert also
noted with more people using the pool,
more chemicals will be needed to keep the
water clean. Bub said it makes sense the
pool would use more chemicals because
it is about 30 percent larger than it was
before, and the water is ltered more fre-
quently due to changes to bring the pool
into compliance with state rules.
Bub described this season as a learn-
ing one for the pool. He noted there
were some situations that arose over the
course of the summer they did not antici-
pate, primarily due to lifeguards being
unwilling to assert authority, especially
with older youth in the pool.
There were incidents of kids throw-
ing basketballs and pool rubber ducks at
other children. You cant have a 17-year-
old telling other 17-year-olds what to do,
Bub said.
Mayor Mike Wellner agreed, noting
years ago when he and Larry Conner ran
the summer recreation program, they
would even run into problems with col-
lege kids being unwilling to discipline
other youth. Wellner suggested having an
adult serve in a pool supervisor position
to oversee the lifeguards and ensure pool
rules are being followed. If nothing else,
he said it would give back-up to a decision
made by a lifeguard.
Chariton noted in the past there had al-
ways been an adult in charge of the pool,
but in recent years the city has gotten
away from it because they havent gotten
the applicants. Wellner noted he has been
approached by a few individuals who are
interested in the position and who said
they were willing to work on a stipend.
Committee members agreed to recom-
mend creation of the position for next
summer, with a job description and pay
to be determined at a future meeting.
The cost of the position for the rst year
would come from leftover money from
the pool renovation project.
In other business, committee mem-
Recommended the $32,000 re-
maining from project funds and dona-
tions be retained in a nonlapsing reserve
fund for future pool needs. City coordina-
tor John Fales objected to the move, say-
ing he felt it should go back to the capital
projects account. According to Fales, the
donations made to the pool project should
have offset the amount the city was
spending. Committee members and Well-
ner disagreed, not-
ing people donated
to the pool project
thinking it would be
in addition to what
the city was plan-
ning to spend. The
will go to the full
city council next
month for nal ac-
R e c -
ommended using
pool project reserve
funds to purchase
about 25 additional
stackable chairs for
the pool area. Chari-
ton was instructed to get prices from local
retailers for the chairs. It was also noted
patrons are welcome to bring their own
chairs to the pool area.
Recommended creating two
designated sunscreen spraying stations.
These areas located on either side of the
pool will have a rubber mat for people to
stand on while applying spray-on sun-
screen to their children. The popular
spray-on sunscreen stains the concrete
deck areas. You can still see the little
footprints on the concrete, Chariton
said. The rubber mats will help protect
the concrete.
Discussed opening the door to
licensing a third-party vendor to sell con-
cessions at the park through the summer.
The committee will advertise for propos-
als for those who are interested in provid-
ing the service. Bub said he felt whoever
the vendor is should also be allowed to
sell during special events in the park,
such as the 4th of July or the car show.
Both events currently run their own con-
cessions, which are used as fundraisers,
and concern was raised about being seen
as competing against civic organizations.
Agreed to work with the Med-
ford Area Senior High School Key Club
to design a mural for the north side of
the changing building. The students will
work with an area artist to design a mural
to be painted next spring. Design options
will be presented to the city council who
will select the nal design. Committee
members also approved having Chariton
look into different options for repainting
or applying a coating to changing rooms
to clean them up.
Tabled action on getting a sound
system installed at the pool and city park
area until they can get a vendor in to pres-
ent them with options about how it could
be done and what the cost would be.

Taylor County, like many other levels
of government, is facing a budget crisis.
The countys budget committee has
had to make some tough choices about
where cuts can or should be made. Bring-
ing the budget in line is a matter of set-
ting priorities and guring out how to get
done what needs to be done, with the re-
sources available.
Unfortunately, one of the areas identi-
ed by a majority of members of the bud-
get committee as being nonessential is the
countys support of the libraries.
Taylor County levies a special property
tax on municipalities that do not support
their own library, with this money go-
ing to support the ve county libraries
in Westboro, Rib Lake, Medford, Stetson-
ville and Gilman. The communities that
already pay to support those libraries at
the municipal level are exempted from the
tax. The idea is that the libraries are re-
sources for everyone and everyone should
share in the cost of maintaining them.
The county has traditionally used a
cost-per-circulation model for non-res-
ident borrowers to determine each li-
brarys portion of resources. For example,
if someone from the town of Browning
goes to the Frances L. Simek Library and
checks out a book, that counts as a non-
resident circulation. If someone from the
city of Medford checks out a book, that
number is not counted toward the amount
used for determining county funding.
The challenge facing libraries, with the
exception of Gilman, is circulation num-
bers have declined. With the expansion of
e-books and online resources, people are
not checking out as many books as they
have in the past.
This trend will likely continue as tech-
nology use spreads.
Libraries are much more than places
to check out books. They are information
and cultural hubs in the communities.
Banks of public access computer termi-
nals provide resources for job seekers and
students. The meeting rooms and activity
spaces provide platforms for public gath-
erings, political forums and community
learning events.
The value of a library goes far beyond
how many books are checked out in any
given year. A new measurement is needed
to determine how library resources are
allocated that reects the overall usage,
rather than just how many items were cir-
At the same time, libraries need to
work more closely together to share re-
sources and expenses. This is especially
true for Westboro and Rib Lake. Westboro
is facing the sharpest cuts under the coun-
ty library budget because of its small size,
and Rib Lake is not doing much better.
The two communities should look at the
possibility of a joint library with shared
staff between the two facilities. Operat-
ing both Rib Lake and Westboro locations
under a joint agreement could allow both
locations to remain open to serve their
residents for years to come.
As budgets continue to get stretched
thinner, libraries need to work to ensure
voters and decision makers in their com-
munities are aware of what an important
resource they are. There needs to be a new
funding formula less reliant on the tradi-
tional circulation model and one that fo-
cuses on the librarys abilities to serve the
needs of the community.
What comes after asphalt?
For Taylor County, there is a very real possibility it
will return to gravel roads on the highways. Highway
Commissioner Jess Sackmann gave that warning to
members of the budget committee at their September
18 meeting.
His warning was not an idle threat or an exaggera-
tion. Instead, it was based on simple math. Taking the
money available to repave the roads and dividing it by
the cost per mile for roads, gives the number of road
miles that can be replaced each year. The simple math
results in about ve miles of paving each year. For a
city or town, this would be a sizable amount of work,
however, for the 250 mile county highway network, this
requires a road to be able to go 50 years before being
Last winters harsh weather and snow and ice condi-
tions that stretched into April left many roads damaged
throughout the state. Last winter was especially hard
on county and town roads. It is impossible to imagine
what condition a road would be in after 50 winters.
Most town boards have shelved any plans to pave ad-
ditional miles. Board members are closely following the
county and would likely follow the countys lead and re-
turn the paved roads that do exist back to gravel if faced
with that option. The money just isnt there to maintain
Road maintenance is an essential service at the coun-
ty and town level. It is the primary function of local gov-
ernment and is vital for ensuring not only commerce
and industry, but also public safety.
While virtually everyone recognizes the value of a
well-maintained road system, the million dollar ques-
tion is, how do we pay for it.
Road construction costs have spiraled upward in
recent years. This has been driven in part by the cost
of asphalt, which in turn is driven by the market price
of oil. It is hard to plan for future needs when material
costs have doubled in price in the past few years.
The traditional model has been to raise taxes in or-
der to cover the increasing expense. Without expensive
borrowing or a referendum, that option is off the table
for most local governments. This leaves governments
with trying to do more with less resources.
More research needs to be done at the university
level for durable alternatives to asphalt. There needs to
be road pavement options that are not subject to steep
price increases. Asphalt has been the road material of
choice for decades, it is time to look at ways to either
extend its lifespan or replace it as the go-to road surface.
At the same time, local government needs to have the
power to react to changing conditions and the ability
to maintain road infrastructure. Unless there are dras-
tic changes, referendums for road projects are likely to
appear in the coming years. Voters should be ready to
support those efforts to maintain the investment in the
road system.

The City of Medford Planning Commission will get
one more kick at the cat Monday night when Mitch
Mertens will appear before the body to request a condi-
tional use permit for a wider than normal driveway.
Rather than continuing to punish someone for want-
ing to follow the rules while building a home in the city,
Medford leaders need to approve the permit and let the
project proceed.
The ongoing saga of the oversized driveway apron
started a few months ago when Mertens came to the city
asking for a building permit for his new home. City plan-
ner Bob Christensen denied the request for a driveway
wider than the standard 24-foot width based on the zon-
ing code limits.
Mertens then appealed Christensens decision to the
zoning board of appeals. Despite many people on the
board thinking it was much ado about nothing, the board
could not agree on whether there were enough reasons
to grant a variance, noting perhaps the zoning rule itself
needed to be changed.
Mertens then took his cause to the planning com-
mission and city council, asking those bodies to make a
change in the zoning codes. After a public hearing and
a couple meetings and a lengthy discussion on if any
of the driveway rules still made sense, the commission
members voted to recommend opening the door for wider
than standard driveways for situations such as Mertens.
In August, the Medford City Council agreed to add
some exibility for duplexes and multi-family dwellings
to accommodate wider than standard driveway aprons.
Throughout the process, Mertens request for a wider
driveway has been discussed and discussed some more.
At this point, the soup is getting pretty thin, and by all
rights Mondays planning commission meeting should
take only long enough to call for a motion and the vote.
The silly thing about this whole process is that Mertens
has been essentially punished for doing the correct thing.
There are a number of newer driveways in the city wider
than the default 24-feet, but the difference is those prop-
erty owners didnt ask permission. Considering it would
be ludicrous not to mention political suicide for the
city to force people to tear up noncomplying driveways,
it is likewise ludicrous to punish those who bother to ask
permission rst.
It is these bureaucratic quagmires that make many
people hesitant to want to build in the city rather than
the town. At the very least, city residents can rest assured
even prominent business owners get caught in the slow-
moving gears of government as much as any other city
Considering the amount of time Mertens has spent at
city hall the last few months, perhaps he should consider
running for city council next spring. Incumbent alder-
man Arlene Parent has already announced she will not
be seeking reelection. Mertens new residence is in her
district and it will be an open seat. Nomination papers
can be circulated after hunting season.

Says Star News, Medford police need to do their homework
Vox Pop
I was stunned to read the re-
marks by Ken Coyer in last weeks
edition of The Star News. Mr. Coyer
may be a brilliant chief of police,
but when it comes to the law, he
is utterly clueless. Yes, there have
been many challenges to restric-
tions on sex offender residency. Al-
most all challenges have failed. The
only time a court has found that re-
strictions on where sex offenders
can live are an unconstitutional
restraint is where the restrictions
were not for public safety, but were
intended to be punitive. Isnt there
a city attorney who should be con-
sulted on these matters?
I was not surprised to nd that
Mayor Wellner wants to run to
Madison for help, but it is a short-
sighted position that is almost as
uninformed as Ken Coyers. If
Madison is allowed to set policy
for rural areas, it is the smaller
communities like Westboro, Chel-
sea, and Rib Lake that will suf-
fer. Populated areas with many
schools, parks, and churches will
naturally be protected, but small
and unincorporated communities
will become the dumping grounds
of choice. In short, this is a county
issue. Surely, there is someone on
the county board with enough fore-
sight and critical thinking ability
to tackle this issue.
Perhaps, the city of Medford or
The Star News should invest in a
subscription to Westlaw Next or
Lexis Nexus. The facts matter, and
one would think the mayor, the
chief of police, and the local pa-
per would want to check the facts
before making statements that are
at best misleading, and at worst pa-
tently false.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary
Tom Vilsack this week unveiled highly anticipated new
programs to help farmers better manage risk, ushering
in one of the most signicant reforms to U.S. farm pro-
grams in decades.
Vilsack also announced new tools are now available
to help provide farmers with the information they need
to choose the new safety net program that is right for
their business.
The 2014 Farm Bill represented some of the largest
farm policy reforms in decades. One of the Farm Bills
most signicant reforms is nally taking effect, said
Vilsack. Farming is one of the riskiest businesses in
the world. These new programs help ensure risk can
be effectively managed so families dont lose farms that
have been passed down through generations because of
events beyond their control. But unlike the old direct
payment program, which paid farmers in good years
and bad, these new initiatives are based on market
forces and include county and individual coverage
options. These reforms provide a much more rational
approach to helping farmers manage risk.
The new programs, Agricultural Risk Coverage
(ARC) and Price Loss Coverage (PLC), are cornerstones
of the commodity farm safety net programs in the 2014
Farm Bill, legislation that ended direct payments. Both
programs offer farmers protection when market forces
cause substantial drops in crop prices and/or revenues.
Producers will have through early spring of 2015 to se-
lect which program works best for their business.
To help farmers choose between ARC and PLC, USDA
helped create online tools that allow farmers to enter
information about their operation and see projections
about what each program will mean for them under pos-
sible future scenarios. The new tools are now available
at USDA provided $3 million
to the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute
(FAPRI) at the University of Missouri and the Agricul-
tural and Food Policy Center (AFPC) at Texas A&M (co-
leads for the National Association of Agricultural and
Food Policy), along with the University of Illinois (lead
for the National Coalition for Producer Education) to
develop the new programs.
Were committed to giving farmers as much infor-
mation as we can so they can make an informed deci-
sion between these programs, said Vilsack. These
resources will help farm owners and producers boil the
information down, understand what their options are,
and ultimately make the best decision on which choice
is right for them. We are very grateful to our partners
for their phenomenal work in developing these new
tools within a very short time frame.
Starting Monday, Sept. 29, farm owners may begin
visiting their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) ofces
if they want to update their yield history and/or real-
locate base acres, the rst step before choosing which
new program best serves their risk management needs.
Letters sent this summer enabled farm owners and pro-
ducers to analyze their crop planting history in order
to decide whether to keep their base acres or reallocate
them according to recent

St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in Medford
will formally welcome its new spiritual leader on Sun-
day, as Rev. Brian Mundt is installed as the congrega-
tions senior pastor during the 10:15 a.m. worship ser-
Mundt comes to the community from a role as inten-
tional interim pastor in four different Twin Cities con-
gregations. His time in Minnesota has included studies
which led to a doctorate degree. Prior to those stops, he
served a Rice Lake congregation.
I have my vision, but as a congregation we need to
ask where God is calling us and what God is up to in the
community, Mundt said. Its a shared discernment, we
need to do it as a community and thats the fun part.
Mundts doctoral work looked at the question of how
to get people immersed in scripture. He said a focus on
discipleship will be in his call to this community.
St. Pauls was most recently served by interim pastor
Kelly Taylor-Schaus and visitation pastor
Nancy Amacher. Its last ministerial call
was lled by Rev. Pete Warmanen, who
led the congregation for almost a
Mundt served in a variety of ca-
pacities in the United States Air
Force before pursuing a second
career in the ministry. He said
hes felt a call toward the min-
istry since his grade school
days, and like many oth-
ers, he pursued it after
serving his country.
Mundt is married and has
a grown son. The couple has
a pair of border collies,
Chance and Thunder. He
enjoys watching mov-
ies, hiking and walks,
reading and continuing
education. He has done
rie and trap shooting
and said curling in-
trigues him.

The Never Forgotten Honor Flight organization
based in Wausau, and the many organizations, busi-
nesses and individuals who fund it, will y two World
War II veterans, 93 Korean War veterans and one
Vietnam War veteran to Washington, D.C. to see the
memorials that honor their service on Monday, Oct.6.
Fifty-ve guardians will accompany the vets on the trip
to assist them on their whirlwind one-day round trip
that departs Central Wisconsin Airport at 7 a.m. and is
scheduled to return at approximately 10 p.m. The public
is invited to the Central Wisconsin Airport to welcome
the veterans home Monday night, and Honor Flight of-
cials recommend arriving by 8:30 p.m. Free parking for
those welcoming the veterans home will be provided.
Local veterans going on the Oct. 6 trip include:
Henry Brushaber of Medford, a Korean War veteran
who served in the Army from July 1953 to May 1955. He
was a Corporal working in eld wire.
Alton Cain of Medford, a Korean War veteran who
served in the Navy from February 1951 to February
1955. He was a 3rd Class Gunner Mate.
Neal Olkives of Medford, a Korean War veteran who
served in the Army infantry from January 12, 1954 to
May 18, 1958. He was a SP4 who also was stationed in
Germany and Fort Riley, Kan.
George Buksa of Rib Lake, a Korean War veteran
who served in the Navy from 1949-1955. He was a sea-
man who served on the carrier USS Coral Sea, seeing
duty in the Mediterranean Sea.
Richard Gordon of Rib Lake, a Korean War veteran
who served in the Army from November 1951 to Novem-
ber 1953. He was a Corporal who set up smoke cover to
retrieve the wounded and other GIs.
Charles Strebel of Rib Lake, a Korean War veteran
who served in the Marines from October 1948 to March
1956. He was a S/Sgt. participating in the Inchon land-
ing in January 1951. He worked as a radio operator for
eld artillery.
Melvin Hultman of Ogema, a Korean War veteran,
who served in the Army from October 1951 to October
1953. He was stationed in Germany.
Norbert Daniels of Athens, a Korean War veteran
who served in the Army infantry from December 2, 1952
to December 1, 1954. He served as a Tech. Sgt.
William Benzschawel of Owen, a Korean War vet-
eran, who served in the Air Force from May 3, 1950 to
Sept. 3 1953. He was an A/C. He was stationed in the U.S.
and Korea and worked as a record keeper.
After Mondays trip, the Never Forgotten Honor
Flight will have taken 1,666 veterans to Washington,
D.C. since the rst ight on April 27, 2010. Two more
trips are scheduled for April and May 2015. Any veter-
ans from World War II, the Korean War and the Viet-
nam War are encouraged to submit an application as
soon as possible.
Recent honor ight participants from this area in-
clude: Lewis Berlyn of Westboro, Chester Brahmer of
Rib Lake, Delbert Wells of Medford and Patrick Schae-
fer of Lublin.
Veterans receive a free round-trip ight, and guard-
ians pay $500 for the opportunity to accompany one or
two veterans on the trip. Veterans and guardians inter-
ested in taking a future Honor Flight must complete an
application at: or
contact the organization at 715-573-8519. Veterans are
selected based upon the order in which their applica-
tions are received and the conict they served in. Pref-
erence is given to World War II veterans, then Korea
veterans and then Vietnam veterans. Veterans who are
terminally ill, regardless of when they served, are also
given preference. Guardians should be 18-69 years old
and able to lend physical assistance to the veterans.
Completed applications for veterans and guardians also
can be mailed to Never Forgotten Honor Flight, P.O.
Box 5056 Wausau, WI 54402-5056.

In his annual State of Education address, State Su-
perintendent Tony Evers called for nding common
ground to move education forward for Wisconsin stu-
Were doing more in this single year than in any
of my previous 37 years in public education, he said.
Lets work together to nd common ground that unites
us and stand strong on behalf of our kids.
His speech included a long list of initiatives educa-
tors have been working on for several years, a spotlight
on his Achievement Gap Task Force and its work to ad-
vance strategies to close achievement gaps, and a push
to x the states school funding inequalities by reintro-
ducing Fair Funding for Our Future.
Following through on initiatives
Evers stressed the importance of the daily steps go-
ing on in the states public schools to transform teach-
ing and learning. He noted educators are working on
higher, rigorous new academic standards; better as-
sessments; a new educator evaluation system; new in-
vestments in career readiness; and continued improve-
ments in the states accountability system.
This year, thanks to higher academic standards,
embraced by Wisconsin educators, our students are
learning more in mathematics, English language arts,
and reading.
Thanks to partnerships between K-12 and higher
education, more high school students are earning col-
lege credits. And this year, our new incentive program
gives more students the chance to earn industry certi-
[T]he Education Commission of the States rated
Wisconsins school report cards as among the nations
Promoting excellence for all
Evers shared his pride in Wisconsins nation leading
ACT scores and Advanced Placement results. However,
he cautioned the state has much more to do to reach the
Agenda 2017 goals to have every child graduate college
and be career ready.
Its unacceptable that Wisconsin is worst in the na-
tion when it comes to the well-being of African Ameri-
can children. Its unacceptable when Hispanic and
American Indian students drop out of school at a rate of
one in four, and African American students at a rate of
one in three. Its unacceptable that wide gaps still per-
sist for students with disabilities, English learners, and
students in poverty.
Big year for Wisconsin public schools
Today, our task force released its nal report and
we launched a website resources developed by Wis-
consin educators, for Wisconsin educators.
This group did not disappoint they zeroed in on
the real issues and proposed real solutions to classroom
life with diverse groups of kids. They clearly under-
stood that poverty matters. However, and this is very
important, the task force concluded that if we dont ad-
dress the issue of race head on, we will have failed. I
Many of their recommendations revolve around
the importance of relationships: between educator and
student, and among adults, as well as honoring cultures
that are not our own. These are changes of heart and
mind and will be the most difcult to navigate. But, if
we follow our moral compasses, we can change.
The task force also reinforced the importance of
meaningful family engagement. Families must be more
than informed they must be involved and invested
in their childs learning on a daily basis from the class-
room, school, and district level. We can all do better at
What mattered was the common ground they found
in their daily work to help all children reach their full
potential. Their focus was right where it belongs on
the kids, on the classroom, on achievement. Heading
into the next legislative session, this is a lesson we can
all take to heart. There certainly will be proposals that
will divide and distract us. But, we can accomplish so
much more when we tackle the harder work of nding
common ground.
Funding our schools
Evers commended the work of the Speakers Task
Force on Rural Schools, comprised of rural legisla-
tors from both parties. He noted the group heard loud
and clear what educators have long known: the states
school funding system is broken. He said the toll of cuts,
freezes, caps, and a failure to reform the school funding
system is an increasing divide among rural, suburban,
and urban school districts. And, he suggested the school
funding system is threatening Wisconsin students fun-
damental right to an equal opportunity for a sound ba-
sic education.
In its 2000 Vincent v. Voight decision, Wisconsins
Supreme Court found our school nance system consti-
tutionally sound, so long as it met certain conditions.
Yet, school funding decisions since have gone the other
He cited data that showed state aid hasnt kept pace
with ination; frozen special education aid only covers
about a quarter of district special education costs; state
funding for English learners is lower now than it was
in 2005, covering only 8.5 percent of eligible costs for a
growing population; increases in student poverty, with
43 percent eligible for free and reduced-price school
meals; and more districts experiencing declining enroll-
ment, leaving rural districts poorer, with fewer kids.
We can no longer ignore these realities, and what
they mean for our students. This November, I will
again propose Fair Funding for Our Future a com-
prehensive school funding reform package. Ill propose
increases in general aid and revenue limits and more
support for special needs students, English learners,
students in poverty, and rural schools.
I call on our governor and Legislature to nally
tackle this issue and adopt these long overdue reforms.
Lets ght for and nally achieve meaningful school
nance reform that provides all students from all parts
of the state the equal opportunities they deserve.

Consumers look to newspapers when theyre in the market for products and services,
making newspapers their primary advertising and information source.
The familiar green John Deere equipment along Hwy
13 south of Medford will soon be going away.
Riesterer & Schnell recently announced plans to
close its Taylor County location and merge with the
dealership in Stratford.
Our organization recently worked with the Central
Wisconsin Co-op (CWC) group to sign a letter of intent
to purchase the John Deere dealership in Stratford,
stated general manager Waldo Riesterer in a letter an-
nouncing the change. The deal is expected to be com-
pleted by November 1.
After much consideration, the CWC Board has
come to the decision to separate the cooperative from
the John Deere dealership. In talking with them, they
believe this will allow them to refocus their efforts on
the cooperative side of the business. In their decision-
making process, they wanted to partner with a compa-
ny that values their customers and employees as much
as they do. Both parties agreed that Riesterer & Schnell
shares those same values, Riesterer stated.
According to Riesterer, John Deeres long-term strat-
egy for their Wisconsin territory has been to have one
dealership located west of Wausau on the Hwy 29 corri-
dor. This will result in the Medford and Stratford loca-
tions being merged into the existing Stratford location.
By bringing these two teams of people together,
we believe we will be able to better serve our custom-
ers and offer them the convenience and resources of a
multi-store dealership, he said.
Our intention is to work with the existing staff from
Medford and Stratford to maintain the level of experi-
ence youve grown to expect from John Deere in that
area, he said. When you call or walk into the store,
you will notice that many of the same people that have
served your needs for years will still be there.
According to Riesterer, they will be establishing a
dedicated parts and service route in Taylor County to
help customers with on-site parts needs.

Firewood cutting permits
available for national forest
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest has forest
products removal permits available for the gathering of
rewood for local use.
This time-honored tradition provides an opportunity
for local residents to cut rewood for the winter and also
reduces the ammable material in the National Forest.
The early September storms have created an am-
ple supply of rewood in some of the harder hit areas
including the Great Divide and Medford-Park Falls
districts, said Paul Strong, forest supervisor for the
Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Other parts
of the forest also have rewood cutting opportunities
along roads open for motor vehicle use.
Firewood cutting permits are available for purchase
at all Forest Service district ofce locations for $20 ($5
per cord, four cord minimum). More information can be
found at
To help facilitate additional storm damage clean-up
efforts and reduce the ammable materials on the for-
est, there is an addendum to the forest product removal
permits allowing permit holders to use ATVs to collect
rewood along portions of the Flambeau Trail. This op-
portunity only applies to specic locations which will
be outlined when rewood cutters receive their permit,
the addendum and associated map. Firewood cutters
are required to have their permit and addendum with
them while cutting. The rewood addendum permits
will expire October 31. If current permit holders are
interested in the addendum there will be no additional
charge, however they do need to come into the Park
Falls Forest Service ofce to receive the addendum.
It is anticipated additional rewood cutting through
an addendum will be available on the Great Divide Dis-
trict. More information will be posted to the website
when available.
For more information regarding rewood cutting in
the national forest and the addendum, contact the Park
Falls District at 715-762-2461.

The Gilman Pirates had upset on their mind but
couldnt nish the job and fell 18-0 against the Owen-
Withee Blackhawks on homecoming night Friday.
The Blackhawks entered the game 5-0 in the
Cloverwood and with the top-ranked offense and de-
fense in the conference, the Pirates knew they would
face a stern challenge.
The rst half was a battle between the defenses. The
Blackhawks received the opening kickoff and drove the
length of the eld to score the only points of the half
when the Cloverwoods leading rusher Bryce Neimi
dove in from the one.
The Pirates defense responded to the early touch-
down. They didnt give up any points for the rest of the
half and Owen-Withee only mustered ve rst downs in
the half. While the defense was stiing the Blackhawks
offense, the Pirates attack couldnt nd ways to close
out drives. Following the early Blackhawks touch-
down, Gilman drove the length of the eld before fail-
ing to convert on fourth down inside Owen-Withees 10-
Blackhawks turn back Gilmans upset bid
yard line. The offense stalled again on fourth down on
its next drive, this time from the Blackhawks 21-yard
line. The defense forced an Owen-Withee fumble and
the Pirates powered their way to the three before being
stuffed once again.
We need to do a better job of nishing drives.
That really killed us tonight, Pirates coach Robin
Rosemeyer said after the game.
The defensive battle continued in the early stages of
the third quarter. The Pirates received the kickoff and
again went three and out. The Blackhawks answered
with a three and out of their own. Gilman still couldnt
muster anything on offense and punted the ball back
to Owen-Withee. The Blackhawks surprisingly went to
the passing game to break the deadlock, and quarter-
back Preston Shelton found Kolton Kaduce on a huge
pass to put the offense inside the Pirates 10-yard line.
They do what good teams do. We were doing a good
job shutting down their running game and they altered
their game plan, Rosemeyer said.

It will show up in the standings as a draw, but it de-
nitely felt like a win. The Medford Raiders soccer team
scored in the 81st minute to secure a 1-1 draw with the
visiting Northland Pines Eagles on Tuesday.
The game started on a sour note for the home side.
Pines forward Stephen Chamberlain grabbed his sev-
enth goal of the season when he scored in the fth min-
ute off a perfectly-struck free kick from 25 yards out to
put the Eagles in front 1-0.
After that early concession, the Raiders defense
tightened up. Both teams had several big chances go to
waste in the rst half, but Medford had the most close
calls. In the 21st minute, the Raiders caught the Eagles
defenders out of position, but keeper Gabe Hartwig
charged off his line to deny Medford the equalizing goal
on the three-on-one chance. Just before the end of the
half, the Raiders narrowly missed a tie game when Osy
Ekwuemes shot from 12 yards out was miraculously
saved by a ngertip dive from Hartwig.
After absorbing pressure in the rst half, the Eagles
were no longer content to sit on their one-goal lead and
began to push forward.
They sat back and took the pressure, we had to keep
attacking and knew that eventually we would succeed,
Raiders coach Dan Felix said after the game.
Both teams were quick on the counterattacks after
gaining possession and there were opportunities for
both sides, but great plays by Medford keeper Jacob
Geiger and Hartwig kept both teams from notching
another goal for the rst 35 minutes of the second half.
Finally, in the 81st minute, on yet another counterat-
tack, the Raiders broke through. Medford pushed men
forward in a furious attempt to tie the game, and AJ
Felix was able to break away from his defender inside
the Eagles penalty area, where he played a crisp pass to
Ekwueme who tapped the ball past the keeper to reward
the Raiders for their continuous pressure. The goal was
Ekwuemes sixth of the year. The game turned free-
owing as both teams made bids for the win, but it was
to no avail, the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
It was only a tie, but you could tell from the players
faces it meant much more than the one point they had
secured. They had fought back and for the most part,
controlled the game against a traditional GNC power.
Coach Felix was impressed with the ght of his team
and saw this as a big condence boost for his squad.
I made a few substitutions after the early goal, and
those guys really played well. Preston Carlson, Carter
Ray, and Jared Armbrust all had great games, he said.
The Raiders take their GNC record of 4-4-1 into
Rhinelander tonight, Thursday, to take on the Hodags,
who also drew their game on Tuesday with Lakeland.
Those two teams lead the GNC with 7-1-1 records.
Rhinelander is strong, it will be a tough environ-
ment but we have the ability to get a result, Felix said.

Lots of competitive matches
in Medford volleyball invite
It seemed tting a volleyball tourna-
ment that featured little separation be-
tween the squads came down to an extra
Oshkosh Lourdes won the tiebreaking
game of Saturdays Medford Invitational,
beating Ashland 15-12 after both squads
had gone 4-1 in the six-team, round-rob-
in tournament. Lourdes swept Ashland
earlier in the day, but Medfords 2-1 win
over Lourdes in round four forced the
tiebreaking game.
The host Raiders went the full three
sets in three of their ve matches, dem-
onstrating how closely contested the
tournament was. They nished 2-3 to tie
Bloomer for fourth place. Stanley-Boyd
beat Medford and Bloomer to climb into
third place at 3-2.
The Gilman Pirates put up some good
battles, particularly in second games of
matches, but they fell short each time
and nished 0-5.
For Medford, game-three losses to
Stanley-Boyd and Ashland spelled the
difference between 4-1 and a chance to
play for the title and its ultimate 2-3 n-
Head coach Dave Vaara said a three-
game loss to Stanley-Boyd in the second
round was one he felt the Raiders let get
away. The Orioles, who currently lead
the Western Cloverbelt Conference, were
without standout athlete Jamie Reit.
After losing game one 25-22, Medford
grabbed momentum by taking several
six-point leads in game two, the last of
which was 19-13 on a tip kill by Sophia
Pernsteiner. Victoria Lammar pounded
back-to-back kills to push the lead to 22-
17, but the Orioles stormed back, scor-
ing six straight points to grab the lead.
Medford responded with three straight
points to win the game 25-23 with Jen
Stolp and Pernsteiner getting the last
two winners.
Unfortunately, the Raiders werent
able to carry the momentum into game
three. Stanley-Boyd jumped out to a 5-1
lead. Medford pulled within 7-6, then the
Orioles went on another run to close out
the match 15-8.
Lammar and Lainey Brunner had ve
attack kills each in the loss, while Stolp
had four. McKenzie Dahl had three at-
tack kills and two tips. Lammar had 10
assists and two aces.
The win over Lourdes was the high-
light for the Raiders. The Knights fea-
tured a young but tall squad that had
won three-set matches over Bloomer and
Stanley-Boyd. Medfords young front line
stood tall in this one with Pernsteiner
and Lammar getting ve kills each,
Vanessa Laher adding four and Jenna
Klemm dishing out 12 assists.
The Raiders led game one up until the
Knights tied it at 19-19. Lammar got a
kill, but Lourdes ripped off three straight
points, capped by a big kill from Kelli
Calkins. Brunner stopped the run with a
kill, and Pernsteiner got a block to tie it
up. Kaitlin Walshs kill tied it again at 23-
23 and the Raiders got the last two points
including a clinching ace from Klemm to
win 25-23.
Lourdes dominated game two 25-17.
The Raiders jumped ahead 3-0 in game
three and never let the lead go. It was 10-9
when Medford nished with a 5-1 surge.
Laher had two big kills and a block, while
Maddy Higgins served a key ace to ice it.
Vaara said Lahers play was encour-
aging. The sophomore got an extensive
look on the outside during the tourna-
ment and responded with 17 attack kills
and a block kill in 10 games played.
Medford played Ashland in the fth
and nal round. A Medford win wouldve
made Lourdes the undisputed champi-
ons. But Ashland answered a game one
loss and won the match in three sets to
force the tiebreaker.
The Raiders were 21 of 22 in serving in
game one and got two aces from Maggie
Baker and another from Higgins in a
25-19 win. Ashland, though, grabbed mo-
mentum quickly in game two and kept
it throughout, rolling to a 25-17 win. The
Oredockers got key points late to take
game three 15-12.
Laher had ve more kills in this
match. Stolp, Lammar, Brunner and
Pernsteiner had three apiece. Lammar
added a tip and Pernsteiner had a block.
Lammar had 10 assists and Klemm added
Medford opened the tournament with
a convincing 2-0 win over Gilman. Game
one was a 25-7 blowout, but the Pirates
gained some footing in the second set
and made a game of it, pulling within
18-17 and 19-18. A block kill by Taylor
Hendricks made it 19-18. Brunner and
Stolp came back with kills for Medford.
Lammar added an ace to make it 24-19
and Dahl surprised Gilmans defense
with a tip to clinch it at 25-19.
Brunner had six kills to lead Medford
in the win. Dahl had four kills and four
assists. Lammar had seven assists and
Klemm added four.
The low point of the day for the Raiders
was a 2-0 loss to Bloomer in round three.
They never led in the rst set and fell 25-
21. Medford rallied from a 12-3 decit in
the second set and took leads of 18-16 and
20-17. But the Blackhawks rallied and
won 25-22. Brunner went on a big serving
run during Medfords comeback and had
four aces.
Lammar was the attack kill leader
for the day with 18. Brunner had 17,
Pernsteiner had 16 and Stolp and Dahl
each had 15. Klemm had 36 assists,
Lammar had 35 and Dahl had 14. Brunner
had ve aces, while Baker, Klemm and
Lammar had four each. Higgins had 19
digs, Baker had 17 and Lammar had 15.
Competition good for Pirates
Slow starts hurt Gilman throughout
the tournament. The trend started in the
Pirates opening loss to Medford and con-
tinued in round two against Bloomer. The
Blackhawks took a 17-5 lead in game one
en route to a 25-15 win. Gilman responded
in game two and took a 12-7 lead follow-
ing a Kayla Chause push, a Hendricks
kill and a key save by Shannon Draeger.
Bloomer went on an 11-5 surge to take an
18-17 lead. It went back and forth from
there with the Blackhawks prevailing
Set one against Ashland was tied 14-14
when the Oredockers went on an 11-3 run
to win 25-17. The Pirates had a chance in
game two, pulling ahead 22-20 on a Brooke
Webster kill. Draegers tap tied it at 23-
23, but a bad set and a Molly Richardson
block kill iced it for the Dockers.
Stanley-Boyd crushed Gilman 25-10 in
set one, but Gilman started well in game
two, taking a 10-8 lead on a Hendricks
kill. But the momentum died after that
and the Orioles won 25-15. Lourdes swept
Gilman 25-16, 25-17 in round ve. The
Pirates were within 18-16 in the second
set before a couple of big kills by Vanessa
Buyarski sparked the Knights.
Websters 12 kills led Gilman for the
day, while Emily Johnson added 10 and
Makaylen Skabroud had six. Skabroud
served three aces. Draeger had sev-
en blocks, including a kill. Morgan
Birkenholz led Gilman with 12 digs.
Eyes on the ball
Gilmans Kayla Chause has an idea of where shes going to set the volleyball, while
Medfords Vanessa Laher (14) and Maggie Baker (11) are ready to react during the rst
match of Saturdays Medford Invitational at Medford Area Middle School. Medford
won this match 2-0 and nished 2-3 for the day. Gilman wound up 0-5.

The Rib Lake volleyball team contin-
ued to make itself at home in other teams
gyms Tuesday, sweeping Chequamegon
3-0 to record its fourth straight road win.
This one counted as a Marawood North
win, Rib Lakes rst of the fall. At 1-2 in
league play, the Lady Redmen are tied
with Prentice for fth place with three
conference matches to go. Chequamegon
fell to 0-5 in the North with Tuesdays
We came out ready to play, Rib Lake
head coach Barb Anderson said. We
were passing well and communicating.
The sweep didnt come easily. The
Lady Redmen cruised in game one, win-
ning 25-12. Rib Lake led game two 19-13,
but the Screaming Eagles closed the gap
before the Lady Redmen closed it out at
25-22. The third game was even closer.
Chequamegon led early 7-3. Rib Lake
forced ties at 14-14 and 21-21 before nudg-
ing ahead to win 25-23.
We had to keep pushing one point at a
time, Anderson said.
Offensive leaders for Rib Lake includ-
ed Katie Cardey, who had 12 kills and two
ace serves. She added 10 digs on the de-
fensive side. Rachel Wilhelm added eight
kills and Regan Dobbs had seven kills
and two blocks.
Rachel moved the ball around and re-
ally found the holes, Anderson said.
Zoe Reissner had a good night with
four kills and 11 digs. Setter Rachel Hoyt
added four kills to her 28 assists.
Mariah Thums served as a second set-
ter and nished with four assists, an ace
and 11 digs. Ciara Scheithauer had three
kills and four digs. Grace Weinke had a
team-high 17 digs.
Grace really ran through the ball,
Anderson said.
Now 6-14 overall, Rib Lake will next
host a solid squad from Phillips on
Tuesday. Then its on to Prentice October
9. Both conference matches start at 7 p.m.
Cardey shines in win
Cardey had 24 kills and nine digs and
Hoyt was outstanding as well, leading
Rib Lake to a four-game non-conference
win at Northland Lutheran on Thursday.

Rudolph and Kakes rule again; girls an impressive 2nd at Edgar
Three top-ve nishes put the Medford
boys in second place and three top-eight
nishes also put the girls in second place
during Tuesdays Edgar Cross Country
Invitational held at the 9 Mile Recreation
Area just outside of Wausau.
Raider junior Jarod Rudolph made
it a perfect six for six in the boys race,
winning by another convincing margin.
This time, the runner-up was his team-
mate Josh Kakes.
The girls had an impressive day, gain-
ing their highest team nish of the fall,
led by Mackenzie Carey, who took second
out of 61 varsity girls in a time of 21:29.9.
Kara Rudolph was fourth in 21:54.8 and
Hannah Brandner had a solid outing as
well, taking eighth in 22:13.9.
The only runner to beat Carey was
Eileen Endress of Eau Claire Regis,
who nished in 20:50.1 Pittsvilles Jenna
Hughes was 12.2 seconds behind Carey
and 12.7 seconds ahead of Rudolph to
claim third place. Rudolph got the fourth
spot by nishing 2.5 seconds ahead of
Mosinees Sam Kaczor.
Freshman Cassandra Mravik nished
16th for Medford in 22:46.1, missing the
top 15 by 8.2 seconds. Taylor Adleman
was the fth scorer, nishing 33rd in
23:52.7. Freshman Myranda Baker was
40th in 24:21.1 and junior Cassandra
Meyer was 41st in 24:26 for the Raiders.
The majority of the girls team set
new personal record times, head coach
Kevin Wellman said. Kara and Taylor
both had great kicks to the nish, pass-
ing four or ve runners in the last 100
yards. Cassandra Mravik and Myranda
Baker both set great times and really
lowered their personal times. The girls
team is really doing great, having placed
in the top three in the last three meets.
Medford fell 13 points behind Eau
Claire Regis in the team standings,
46-59. The Ramblers had four runners
in the top 12 places and all ve scor-
ers in the top 17 to secure the victory.
Medfords Great Northern Conference
rival Mosinee nished third, eight points
behind the Raiders. Edgar was fourth
with 108 points, followed by Pittsville
(128), Westeld (131), Columbus Catholic
(159) and Colby-Abbotsford (182). Loyal-
Greenwood-Granton, Neillsville and
Owen-Withee were incomplete.
Westeld was the only boys team bet-
ter than Medford, outscoring the Raiders
49-65, but no one was better than the
duo of Rudolph and Kakes. Rudolphs
winning time was 16:35.3, while Kakes
comfortably settled into second place at
17:28.9, 17.6 seconds ahead of Mosinees
Erik Jass.
Freshman Sam Hallgren set a person-
al-best time and cracked the top ve at
18:09.3. He was 6.4 seconds behind fourth-
place runner Ben Behling of Columbus
Catholic. Junior Mike Knight returned
to good health and to the varsity lineup
Tuesday. He was 20th out of 63 varsity
runners with a time of 19:11.2. Trey
Ulrich was the fth scorer, taking 39th
in 19:56.1. Michael Cypher was 58th in
The Raiders were without senior Elliot
Marshall and sophomore Joe Tomandl,
who were attending a state FFA event.
Many of the runners set new person-
al-record times, Wellman said of the
boys. Sam Hallgren, Mike Knight and
Trey Ulrich all ran extremely well and
lowered their best times of the season.
Jarod kept his streak alive, winning all
six races this season. Josh Kakes also ran
his best race of the season.
Medford held a nine-point advantage
over Columbus Catholic. Mosinee was a
distant fourth with 115 points, followed
by Edgar (141), Neillsville (154), Loyal-
Greenwood-Granton (157), Pittsville
(162), Eau Claire Regis (209) and Owen-
Withee (incomplete).
Margaret Hamann led Medford in the
girls JV race, taking third out of 20 run-
ners in 25:22.1. Charlie Faude was ninth
in 27:32.5, Makayla Hanson was 18th
in 33:17.8 and Carlye Baker was 20th in
40:26.7. Hamann was 29.4 seconds behind
winner Cheyenne Gunseor of Mosinee.
Faude cut three minutes off her previous
best 5,000-meter time.
The JV boys were fourth out of ve
teams that were able to eld full scoring
squads, beating Mosinee by ve points.
Carter Sapinski led that crew with an
11th-place time of 20:55.1, just ahead of
teammate Jon Wiegel, who nished in
20:55.9. Victor Rinaldi was 21st in the 48-
man eld with a time of 21:58.8. Colton
Werner was 32nd in 22:58.7 and Brett
Hedlund was 42nd in 25:32.4.
Home meet in next stretch
A stretch of three meets in eight days
includes Medfords rst home meet in
several seasons. On Monday, the Raiders
will host a ve-team meet at the Black
River Golf Course, starting at 4 p.m.
There also will be a middle school race.
Prentice-Rib Lake, Stanley-Boyd,
Thorp and Marathon are scheduled to
compete in the high school race.
The Raiders also are at the Merrill
Invitational Saturday, a meet they did
well at a year ago. The rst race is at
9 a.m. at the Merrill Area Recreation
Center (MARC). Their last pre-confer-
ence tune-up will come October 9 when
they go to the Don Chase Relays hosted
by Weyauwega-Fremont.
Anderson said. Rachel Hoyt did a great
job of getting her the ball when she was
on. Rachel ended the night with 45 as-
sists and nine digs.
The teams split the rst two games
with Rib Lake taking set one 25-17 and
the Wildcats taking a close second set 26-
24. From there, Rib Lake took over, win-
ning 25-17 and 25-21.
It was a good win for us, Anderson
said. We really needed to gain our com-
posure after losing the second set. I was
happy with how the girls regrouped.
Dobbs and Rachel Wilhelm each had
six kills. Scheithauer had a good night
with 11 kills. Megan Beard added three
Grace led the team with 14 digs, while
Thums added 13. Reissner, ghting off a
minor injury, had seven digs and Sam
Staab and Tiffany Peterson each had one.

The Medford Raiders traveled to
Antigo Saturday to nish off the reg-
ular season in the Great Northern
Conferences girls tennis meet.
As a team Medford totaled 20 points,
good enough for third place at the sea-
son-ending GNC tournament and almost
enough to pass Lakeland for third place
overall in the nal standings.
Early-round success was common
for the Raiders, but they were unable to
break through into the late stages of all
brackets save one, as conference power-
houses Rhinelander and Antigo domi-
nated the meet.
The Raiders made their deepest run
at number-three doubles. The pair of
Keysha Firnstahl and Jori Brandner ad-
vanced all the way to the nals, where
they lost to the eventual champions
from Rhinelander, Bri DeNamur and
Kianna Meyer, 6-2 and 6-2. To get to the
nals they defeated the Antigo pair of
Tara Grall and Nikole Houdek in three

third-place match.
Overall, the Hodags took home the
conference title, scoring 38 points in the
meet to nish with a season total of 170.
Antigo was right behind the Hodags with
30 points. The Red Robins nished with
132 total points. Medford followed with

Sweep at Phillips
Medford completed its rain-altered
dual meet schedule in the GNC with a 7-0
sweep at Phillips last Wednesday. It was
Medfords second sweep of the Loggers
this fall.
The closest match came at number-
one doubles, where Danen and Rhyner
held off Langfoss and Holan 6-4,7-5.
Medford won the other ve contested

Upset bid runs out of steam in fourth
Once again, Gilmans defense rose to the challenge,
forcing and recovering a fumble to halt Owen-Withees
attack. The offense couldnt keep up the momentum. On
second down Pirates quarterback Chance Rosemeyer
threw the rst of his three interceptions to give the
ball back to the opposition. The defense held rm yet
again, aided by two holding penalties to force another
punt. After Owen-Withees second interception, the
Pirates defense began to wear down. Dormant for three
quarters, Niemi, the conference-leading rusher, broke
through. His second touchdown of the game came on
a 69-yard sprint off left end. The conversion failed but
the damage had been done, and the Blackhawks led 12-0
with nine minutes to play.
Niemi grabbed his touchdown hat-trick on a run
from 6 yards out to put the game on ice at 18-0.
After an impressive opening three quarters, the
Pirates defense was unable to contain the ground pow-
er of the Blackhawks. Owen-Withee nished the game
with 302 yards of offense, with 221 coming via the run,
behind Niemis 146 yards. The big rushing game made
Niemi the conferences rst 1,000-yard rusher this sea-
son. He now sits at 1,041 yards. Austin Milliren added 69

The Gilman Pirates went into Tuesdays volleyball
match thinking their time had come to knock off their
neighbors from Owen-Withee. Instead, the Blackhawks
continued their recent mastery of the Pirates, eking out
close wins in games three and four to earn a 3-1 Eastern
Cloverbelt Conference victory.
With the win, Owen-Withee climbed out of the con-
ference cellar, while Gilman fell to 0-5, still seeking to
break a two-year conference losing streak. Since a ve-
game win at Columbus Catholic on September 27, 2012,
Gilman has dropped 15 straight ECC matches.
Momentum was the key, as it usually is in volleyball,
according to Gilman head coach Janice Komanec.
We couldnt gain the momentum to take control,
Komanec said. In game two, we gained control right
away and held on to it. In games one, three and four,
we let them take control and then followed. This has
been a struggle of ours throughout the season nding
the tenacity to start strong, get the lead and keep that
lead. We tend to nd ourselves always just behind our
competition regardless of who it is.
The Blackhawks took the rst set 25-19, but Gilman
answered with a solid 25-15 win in the second set. Owen-
Withee improved to 1-3 in the ECC
by taking the next two games 25-23
and 25-21.
Emily Johnson had an out-
standing night for Gilman with
15 kills. Brooke Webster added
10, Taylor Hendricks had seven,
Makaylen Skabroud added three
and Morgan Birkenholz had two.
Kayla Chause set up the hitters
with 30 assists.
Johnson added six blocks.
Hendricks had three and Shannon
Draeger had three, plus a kill.
Skabroud had four aces, while
Webster and Johnson had three apiece. Birkenholz and
Johnson each had nine digs.
This was a tough loss for us, Komanec said. This
weekend we have our home tournament. This will be
a good chance for us to earn some wins and gain some
momentum going in to a very busy next week.
Gilman will get another shot at Owen-Withee
Saturday in the ve-team Gilman Invitational, which
starts at 9 a.m. Bruce, Phillips and Cornell also will at-
From there, Gilman heads to Abbotsford for a tough
non-conference match Monday that starts at 7 p.m.
Conference matches follow at Loyal-Granton Tuesday
and at home against Columbus Catholic on October 9.
Those matches start at 7:15 p.m.
Rockets just too good
Eastern Cloverbelt co-leader Spencer did what a
championship contender is supposed to do Thursday,
sweeping host Gilman 25-12, 25-16 and 25-10. The Rockets
are currently 5-0 in league play, tied with Greenwood
atop the ECC standings. Those two teams square off in
Spencer this coming Tuesday.
Overall we did some good things against Spencer,
Komanec said. They are ranked fth in the state for
Division 3 and their program has been strong for some
years now, so we knew they would be a very tough team.
The girls came out ready to play hard. Our communica-
tion was strong. We were able to get some big digs and
put some kills away. Overall, we can be proud of the
way we played them.
Webster was the kill leader with ve. Johnson had
four and Skabroud added three.
Owen-Withee tips
Gilman in last two
sets; Spencer sweeps
in receiving, catching two balls for 61 yards. Niemi add-
ed one catch for four yards and John Schmelzer had one
catch for 16 yards.
Jesse Ogle led the Pirates on offense, totaling 92 yards
on 18 carries. James Copenhaver added 45 yards on his
18 carries.
Rosemeyer nished seven of 19 passing, for 52 yards.
Copenhaver also attempted two passes, but both were
incomplete. In total, the Pirates gained 191 yards of
offense. The inability to nish
drives in the end zone ultimately
doomed the Pirates in their upset
Coach Rosemeyer was quick to

The defense has progressed
greatly as the seasons gone on,
he said.

The loss drops the Pirates to 1-5 on the season and
eliminates them from eligibility for the playoffs. The
Blackhawks remain a perfect 6-0. This Friday the
Pirates continue their Cloverwood schedule when they

Raiders rout Rhinelander for
second straight GNC win
For the rst time this season, the
Medford Raiders went into a football
game as the clear favorite on Friday
and they played like one, dominating
the Rhinelander Hodags 42-20 at Mike
Webster Stadium.
While bottling up Rhinelanders
pass-oriented attack in the rst three
quarters, the offense ran on all cylin-
ders for the rst time this season, rack-
ing up 338 rushing yards and getting
ve touchdowns combined from Dalton
Hildebrandt and Conrad Bolz.
Medford built a 42-0 lead before the
Hodags scored three fourth-quarter
touchdowns against the Raiders re-
We played very well on the offensive
line, head coach Ted Wilson said. We
were getting to second level, which is
something weve kinda been missing. We
had 338 yards rushing, two players went
over 100 yards rushing and got some big
plays. The kids just played very well.
Medfords second straight win
bumped the teams record to 2-4 overall
and 2-2 in the Great Northern Conference.
Rhinelander fell to 0-3 in the GNC. The
Hodags are 2-4 overall after winning
the completion of a suspended game at
Wittenberg-Birnamwood Monday.
Bolz broke two big touchdown runs in
the third quarter and nished with 176
yards in just 17 carries. Hildebrandt did
most of his damage early, racking up 111
yards in 15 attempts.
The Raiders work on defense was a
major highlight. The Hodags use their
best athletes in the passing game, look-
ing for the home run quite often. Wilson
said the Raiders did a great job of pre-
venting the deep balls from being com-
plete and keeping the short passes from
becoming big plays.
In the run game, they didnt gain
much of anything, Wilson said. With
the passing game, they like to go over the
top on you. But in the rst three quar-
ters, that was really non-existent. When
they completed passes, we made the tack-
le right away and prevented them from
getting any huge gains.
Two bad long snaps in the rst half
by the Hodags hurt their rushing total,
but even without those they did next to
nothing. Medford held them to minus-17
rushing yards. Rhinelander gained 264
yards through the air. The Hodags three
fourth-quarter scoring drives accounted
for 161 of their 247 total yards.
The defense got the games rst big
stop when the rst of those bad snaps
cost Rhinelander on fourth and eight
from Medfords 10. The 26-yard loss gave
Medford the ball at its 36. Seven plays
later, a 64-yard scoring drive was com-
pleted when Hildebrandt busted through
about three tackles and scored from 22
yards out to make it 6-0 with 6:24 left in
the opening quarter.
The Raiders forced a three and out and
went right back to work, going 80 yards
in 16 plays to put their second touchdown
on the board. Hildebrandt had an 18-yard
carry on the drive and caught a pass from
Ben Meier for a key 16-yard completion
on third and 10 from Rhinelanders 27
on the drive. On third and one from the
two, Bolz plowed into the end zone for his
second varsity touchdown of the season.
Meiers two-point pass to Mikel Delzer
made it 14-0 with 10:49 left in the second
The second bad snap resulted in
a 24-yard loss and quickly ended
Rhinelanders next drive. Taking over
at Rhinelanders 41, Medford needed
just seven plays to score again with
Hildebrandts 16-yard run and a 9-yard

completion to Delzer on third and six be-
ing the key plays. Hildebrandts 8-yard
run put the points on the board. Bolzs
two-point conversion run made it 22-0 at
the 6:53 mark.
The Raiders stuffed a fake punt for a
yard loss and took over at their own 39
and needed just three plays to make it
28-0. Bolz broke loose for 26. After a loss,
fullback Josh Thiede found room to run
and scored from 14 yards out with 4:23
still left in the half.
We ran 19 plays in the rst quarter,
Wilson said. We were getting after it,
gaining yards on every play, which was
nice. Dalton broke about three tackles on
his 22-yard touchdown run. He had an 18-
yard run that helped that drive. Conrad
had a big 26-yard run in the second quar-
ter to set up a touchdown. It was good.
We were getting 4 or 5 yards a carry ear-
ly, then we started getting more 14-yard,
10-yard and 20-yard runs.
Medfords defense ended the half with
a stop on downs after Rhinelander had
pushed into Raiders territory and an in-
terception by Meier in the nal seconds.
The offensive line sprung Bolz loose
for a 65-yard scoring jaunt just over a
minute into the third quarter. Jed Miller
scored on the two-point run for a 36-0 lead.
Miller forced a fumble that was recov-
ered by Caleb Dietzman at Rhinelanders
36. Two plays later, Bolz was off to the
races again, this time from 35 yards out
to make it 42-0 with 7:15 left in the third
Reinthaler scored two rushing touch-
downs from 2 yards out and completed a
20-yard touchdown pass to Bryce White as
time expired to account for Rhinelanders
scoring. White, Rhinelanders most
feared receiver was limited to three
catches for 86 yards. Mason Shallow
caught six balls for 97 yards. Reinthaler
was 16 of 33 for 264 yards and the inter-
ception by Meier. Meier, conversely, was
an efcient two for three for 23 yards and
two third-down conversions.
With two straight wins and some
momentum, the Raiders head to Berlin
Friday for a non-conference game
against the 3-3 Indians who appear to
have made solid strides since nishing
3-6 a year ago. Berlins head coach is Joe
Stellmacher, a standout safety for the
Wisconsin Badgers from 2003-06.
Theyve been in every game theyve
played, Wilson said. Theyve won
the games theyre supposed to win and
theyll win a few more. They have a real
good shot at making the playoffs.
The Indians run the traditional
Wing-T offense, using a fair share of pow-
er runs, sweeps and traps, Wilson said.
Running backs Mitchell Kramer and
Nick Reinsbach both average over 100
yards per game. Dakota Ross completes
45 percent of his passes and averages just
over 100 yards per game as well.
Berlin rallied from a 21-7 halftime
decit to pull within 21-20 at Waupaca
Friday before the Comets scored late to
hold on 27-20. They also lost close games
to Eastern Valley Conference co-leaders
Appleton Xavier (40-32) and Freedom
(28-20) earlier in the season. Berlin led
Xavier 32-8 before giving up 32 points in
the last 13 minutes. Xavier had 541 to-
tal yards in that game. Other than that,
Berlin has been solid defensively.
Fridays game kicks off at 7 p.m. at
Berlin High School.

Marathon uses big plays in rst
half to run away from Hawks
Marathon running back Ethan
Seubert avoided tackler after tackler in
the rst half ,and two early turnovers
were quite costly for the Rib Lake-
Prentice Hawks, who dropped a 43-6 deci-
sion to the visiting Red Raiders Friday in
Rib Lake.
Seubert racked up 213 yards in 20
carries and scored three times for the
Red Raiders, who improved to 3-1 in the
Marawood Conference and 3-2 overall.
The Hawks fell to 0-4 in league play
and 1-5 overall and were ofcially elimi-
nated from post-season consideration.
We were playing fairly well in the
rst quarter, co-head coach Kevin
Weiss said after the loss. I think we had
a good plan offensively and defensively.
Those two turnovers hurt us a little bit
there in the rst quarter and changed
momentum a little bit near the end of the
Despite being without starting backs
Carter Hopkins and Austin Zondlo, the
Hawks gained some offensive traction
in the early going. The turnovers, a fum-
ble and an interception, led to 12 quick
points for the Red Raiders, who didnt
need much offensive help and built a 37-6
halftime lead.
Hunter Swan had the big play of the
rst half, taking a pitch from quarter-
back Taylor Brayton and racing 46 yards
down the right sideline to Marathons
two. Two plays later, Swan scored from
the three behind the left side of his offen-
sive line, pulling the Hawks within 12-6
with 4:59 left in the opening quarter. The
touchdown capped a six-play, 63-yard
scoring drive.
We ran the same play twice in a
row, co-head coach Jeremy Brayton
said of the big option play that set up the
touchdown. Taylor felt like he should
have pulled it on the rst one and he gave
it, which may have opened it up for the
second one. Hes the one that said, run
it again. I said all right, go ahead. They
ran it and he read it nicely. He forced the
guy to take him and made the pitch to
Hunter. Hunter cut inside one guy and
made a guy miss.
Swan, however, had to leave the game
at halftime due to injury, depleting the
Hawks of another key weapon in the
arsenal. The offense had no chance, par-
ticularly after Brandon Karlens 87-yard
punt return with 12 seconds left in the
rst half broke the game wide open.
It turned into one of those nights
where Rib Lake-Prentices coaches were
lling holes as best as they could when
bumps and bruises piled up.
I think were pretty banged up,
Weiss said.
Marathon had a 387-137 advantage in
total yardage with 271 of its yards com-
ing in the running game. Seubert set the
tone by zigzagging through at least four
missed tackles for 39 yards on the games
opening snap. On just the third offen-
sive play, Marathon quarterback Kellen
Vetter red a 13-yard touchdown pass
over the middle to Preston Wirkus to put
the visitors up 6-0.
A fumbled snap gave the Red Raiders
just 35 yards to go on their next posses-
sion. Five plays later, Andre Carriveau
scored from the six to make it 12-0.
The Hawks answered with their
touchdown and then stopped Marathons
next drive on downs at the 18. But on sec-
ond down, Seubert jumped a slant pass
and intercepted it, returning it to the 13.
He scored on the next play, which was
the last play of the rst quarter, to make
it 18-6.
The Hawks got one rst down before
punting. Four plays later, Seubert start-
ed right, cut back to the left and was gone
for a 59-yard scoring jaunt. He scored
from 10 yards out with 2:08 left, starting
up the middle and then bouncing it to the
left corner. Karlens punt return was the
killer as he went to his left and got a wall
of blocking that allowed him to acceler-
ate up the sideline.
The poor tackling of the rst half was
one of the major post-game topics for the
Theres got to be a learning experi-
ence for the kids, Weiss said. They need
to watch the lm. Theyre there, ready to
make the tackles. Why didnt they make
the tackles?
What were
they doing
wise wrong?

Were they overrunning the play? They
have to see it happen and get it in their
minds now. I dont think its as much
physical as it is mental.
Defensively, the Hawks stiffened in
the second half and made a handful of
plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Marathons only scoring drive of the half
covered just 33 yards after the Hawks
had to punt while being pinned deep in
their own territory. That was a positive
the team could take from the loss.
The guys we put in there, they held
their own, Weiss said.

in 11 attempts. Drew Rohde ran for 24
yards in nine carries for the Hawks, who

Medfords girls swim team showed no
letdown from its big win over Lakeland
the previous week while overpowering
Colby-Abbotsford 101-62 Thursday at the
MASH pool.
The Raiders had the top nisher in
each of the 11 varsity races and, in ve
cases, had the top three nishers. With
the meet well in hand, the Raiders con-
ceded most of the points in the last three
races to the visiting Hornets.
Its the point of the season where the
practice yards increase, which can make
for somewhat slower times in the meet.
Head coach Anne Burghaus said the
Raiders where right where they need to
be in this meet.
They picked up right where they left
off from the Lakeland meet, she said.
Weve been working them hard, and
you could tell tonight. Theyre doing
great. Well just keep pushing forward.
We have Antigo next week, then the big
ones at the end.
The tone was set with top-three sweeps
in the rst three events.
Mara Schumacher, Samantha Bowe,
Abbie Bergman and Alyssa Loertscher
easily won the 200-yard medley relay
in 2:03.68, while Makenzie Gingras,
Samantha Poehler, Allison Lynch and
Daryian Doberstein took second in
2:17.53. Though Colby-Abbotsford got
the third-place points, Medfords team of
Makenna Drost, Jordan Brost, Markki
Farmer and Hallie Schumacher was ac-
tually 3.18 seconds faster in 2:18.59.
Paige Olson (2:13), Bailey Brandner
(2:24.56) and Maria Neubauer (2:39.97)
swept the top three spots in the 200-
yard freestyle. Then, Mara Schumacher
(2:38.7), Farmer (2:44.53) and Josie Brost
(2:48.45) grabbed the top three spots in
the 200-yard individual medley to quick-
ly make it 36-8.
From there, Medford got individ-
ual wins from Bergman, Bowe, Mara
Schumacher and Olson. Josie Brost,
Bowe, Mara Schumacher and Bergman
added an easy win in the 200-yard free-
style relay at 1:52.6, 5.87 seconds ahead
of Medfords team of Hallie Schumacher,
Farmer, Poehler and Brandner.
Olson, Doberstein, Loertscher and
Brost had the top time in the 400-yard free-
style at 4:13.02, while Hallie Schumacher,
Lynch, Brandner and Brianna Martin

Wrage, Martin, Gingras and Jordan
Brost added a fourth-place time of 2:09.44
in the 200-yard freestyle relay.
Rhinelander had some heavier hit-
ters, but Medfords attacks were more
consistent, resulting in a 3-1 win for the
home team Tuesday at Raider Hall.
The win was Medfords third of the fall
over their Great Northern Conference
rivals, two of which have come in GNC
competition. This one bumped the
Raiders league record to 3-4, while
Rhinelander fell to 1-6 to start the second
half of GNC play.
The Raiders got six or more attack
kills from four different sources, missed
just three of 92 serves in the match and
served up 12 aces to pick up a relatively
solid win, save for a shaky second game,
which the Hodags won 25-20.
Seniors Jen Stolp and McKenzie Dahl
had strong outings, notching seven and
six kills, respectively. Dahl had just
two errors in 21 attack attempts. Stolp
was Medfords go-to hitter early, catch-
ing re in the middle of the rst set.
The Hodags had just pulled within 13-11
when Medford got a sideout. Stolp con-
nected on four attacks during Victoria
Lammars seven-point serving run to
push Medfords lead to 21-11. Maddy
Higgins save found an open spot in
Rhinelanders defense for a 22-13 lead,
Brynn Dahlby served her second ace of
game one, Dahl punished a cross-court
kill that just stayed inside the sideline
and Vanessa Laher got the clinching kill
to end a 25-13 rst set.
Laher tipped things in Medfords favor
in the pivotal third game, recording ve
of her team-high 10 kills with no errors
in the set. After giving up the rst two
points, the Raiders rolled, using a couple
more kills from Stolp and one from Dahl
to vault into the lead. Senior Carlie Rau,
returning from injury, saw her rst sig-
nicant action in the set and seemed to
be a steadying inuence as well, getting
a tap at the net early and a block midway
through. Raus block kill sparked a ve-
point serving run by Dahlby that includ-
ed two kills from Laher, one from Dahl
and a quick push from Lammar that sur-
prised the at-footed Hodags. Medford
led 21-11 and went on to win by another
25-13 count.
Rhinelanders top hitter, senior Riley
Aschenbrenner, got a couple of big kills
to pull the Hodags within 10-9 early in

The Wisconsin Department
of Transportation is celebrat-
ing the 40th anniversary of
its Rustic Roads Program
with a photo contest
Amateur photographers throughout
Wisconsin are invited to grab their cam-
eras and head out to some of the states
most scenic back roads and start snap-
ping away. The Wisconsin Department
of Transportation (WisDOT) is celebrat-
ing the 40th anniversary of the Rustic
Roads Program, one of the states most
successful and longest-lasting state/lo-
cal partnership programs, with a photo
contest. Photos must be taken between
June 16 and December 31 and submis-
sions will be accepted through January
15, 2015. The Rustic Roads Board will
select winning photos in six categories
and will be looking for photos that best
highlight the natural qualities, fea-
tures and vistas commonly found on
Wisconsins ofcially-designated Rustic
Since the rst Rustic Road was
designated in Taylor County in 1975, the
Rustic Roads Program has helped iden-
tify and preserve some of Wisconsins
most scenic country roadways, while
enhancing the state and local tourism
economies, noted WisDOT Scenic
Byways and Rustic Roads Coordinator
Jane Carrola. The photo contest will
help capture the spirit of this extremely
successful and popular partnership.
Currently, there are 115 Rustic Roads
spanning some 665 miles through 59
counties. To qualify as a Rustic Road,
a route must have outstanding natural
features such as rugged terrain, native
vegetation, abundant wildlife, open ar-
eas or agricultural vistas. Rustic roads
range from under two miles long to 37
miles in length and have speed limits of
no more than 45 miles per hour.
Complete contest information, rules
and submission guidelines can be found

Rudolph pushes past Koski
at Colby to stay unbeaten
The Medford Raiders cross country
team traveled to Colby last Thursday.
For the boys, Jared Rudolph continued
his amazing season by claiming rst
overall with his time of 16:40.88. The team
nished third overall behind Rudolphs
strong performance.
Raiders coach Kevin Wellman re-
counted his star runners victory.
Jarod knew going in he would have
great competition from Kevin Koski
(Chequamegon) and he didnt disappoint.
They both ran shoulder to shoulder the
whole race until Jarod pulled away in the
nal 100 meters to win by six seconds,
he said.
Finishing right behind the two top
runners was Medfords Josh Kakes in
third, with his time of 17:36.53. Elliot
Marshall nished in 20th with a time of
19:03.87. Joe Tomandl (20:28.04) came in
51st, Trey Ulrich (20:46.29) placed 58th,
and Carter Sapinski (22:43.36) nished
84th to round out the squad.
Weve been dealing with some in-
juries to Sam Hallgren (hip) and Mike
Knight (shin splints). Even with those
losses we managed third overall,
Wellman said.
Chequamegon took the top team
spot with 47 points, followed by
Colby-Abbotsford (50), Medford (133),
Wittenberg-Birnamwood (137), Stratford
(144), Phillips (186), Prentice-Rib Lake
(206), Athens (238), Loyal (254), Edgar
(268), Pittsville in tenth (290), Augusta
(293), Spencer (320), Marathon (337),
Auburndale (349) and Thorp (401).
Chequamegon rode top-10 perfor-
mances by Koski (second, 16:46.89),
by Sports reporter Bryan Wegter
Cameron Pearson (fourth, 17:42.85) and
Sam Belanger (eighth, 18:13.83) to take
the team win.
The girls team placed sixth overall.
Makenzie Carey paced the Raiders in
seventh place, with a time of 22:00.54.
Kara Rudolph nished 15th with a time
of 22:32. Hannah Brandner came in 37th
with a time of 24:12.87. Cassandra Mravik
(24:50.29) nished 43rd, Taylor Adleman
(25:38.13) placed 52nd, and Margaret
Hamann (27:07.63) placed 61st.
Kara and Taylor both nished with
great kicks, passing several girls on the
nal stretch, Wellman said. Taylors
been battling a cold so it was a good n-
ish for her.
The Phillips Loggers took home the
win by a 19-point margin over second
place Wittenberg-Birnamwood, 45-66. The
top two were followed by Chequamegon
(89), Stratford (127), Prentice-Rib Lake
(133), Medford (154), Colby-Abbotsford
(215), Pittsville (226), Spencer (233),
Auburndale (241), Loyal (250), Athens
(278) and Augusta (333).
Phillips was led by rst-place nisher
Ellie Lochner, with a time of 21:20.99.
Carolyn Neerdaels (sixth), Kristin Belan
(ninth), and Annika Neerdaels (tenth)
also recorded top-10 nishes.
In the boys JV race, Medfords Michael
Cypher was 13th out of 50 runners in
21:37.19, Jon Wiegel was 16th in 21:50.01,
Colton Werner was 36th in 24:03.29 and
Brett Hedlund was 46th at 27:02.91.
Myranda Baker was seventh out of
49 JV girls in 25:40.2, while Cassandra
Meyer was ninth in 25:49.3. Jessica Pai
was 28th at 29:19.87, Charlie Faude was
38th at 32:37.22 and Makayla Hanson was
44th at 34:37.72.
The search for consistency contin-
ued Thursday for the Prentice-Rib Lake
Hawks boys cross country team dur-
ing its seventh-place nish at the Colby
Invitational last Thursday.
Consistency is what were looking
for. Its been elusive so far, Hawks co-
head coach Lee Clendenning said.
The Hawks did have a solid pack con-
sisting of its top four runners. They all
nished within 12 seconds of each other.
Leading the way on the boys side
was Troy Komarek, who nished 32nd
with his time of 19:49.50. Hunter Gedde
came in three seconds later in 35th po-
sition. Nick Eisner was six seconds be-
hind Gedde in 38th place. Donald Dums
nished in 41st with a time of 20:01.75.
Damon Lueck (20:59.24) came in 60th,
Adam Dums (21:42.62) nished 73rd, and
Josh Probst (21:57.38) took 77th.
Were in a spot right now where were
opping spots, Clendenning said. Guys
could be anywhere from rst to fth.
Thats a good problem to have because it
means ve guys have the potential to be
right up there.
The Hawks nished with a team to-
tal of 206 points. Chequamegon placed
rst with a score of 47. Medfords Jarod
Rudolph (16:40.28), Chequamegons
Kevin Koski (16:46.89) and Medfords
Josh Kakes were the top three runners
Hawks nish in middle of the
pack at Colby Invitational
by Sports reporter Bryan Wegter and
Sports Editor Matt Frey
Aidan Anderson was the boys lone JV
entrant. He took 31st out of 50 runners in
Adam Dums took a nice little step for
the boys, Clendenning said. He cut his
time by about 30 seconds. Nick Eisner
has been coming on. He decided he want-
ed to go out with Josh Langteau of Athens
(sixth in 17:54.24) and see how well he
could stick with him. It was good to see
him challenge himself like that.
The Lady Hawks had another solid
meet, taking fth as a team.
Cassy Kurth led the Hawks, nish-
ing in 20th place with a time of 22:56.46.
Kimberly Cummings wasnt far behind
in 23rd place (23:23.64). Sierra Lake took
24th at 23:24.13. Sheridan Kalander placed
31st with a time of 23:51.38. Erin Probst
(24:04.82) came in 35th, while Hailey Wudi
(24:54.60) took 44th and Rachel Filipiak
(25:24.46) claimed 48th.
We have a few health problems with
the girls right now, but its nothing they
cant overcome, Clendenning added
about the girls team.
The Hawks had a team score of 133.
Phillips won the girls team title.
Katie Strobach placed 18th out of 49 JV
girls with a time of 27:40.76.
Kimberly Cummings is really com-
ing along nicely. Were really happy with
how she is doing, Clendenning said.
Katie Strobach has been taking time
off consistently in each meet. Shes im-
proved her time in every race.
The Hawks are at Athens tonight,
Thursday, for a 4:30 race start.

The Gilman Pirates tested themselves
against runners from the big schools
Tuesday at the Chippewa Falls cross
country invitational.
In the meet, which featured several
Division 1 programs in each of the var-
sity races, Bryce Sromek led the Gilman
boys with a 27th-place nish out of 45
runners. He posted a solid time of 19:42.3
at Lake Wissota Golf Course, beating
his time from a year ago by more than a
minute. Ryan Tkachuk came in 40th at
21:46.5, more than two minutes ahead of
last years pace. Tony Guentner was 44th
at 22:37.5, beating Baldwin-Woodvilles
John Stiller by 19.7 seconds.
These were the fastest times of the
season for all three Pirates.
Kendall Skabroud was the nal n-
isher in the girls race, taking 33rd place
in 26:26.8, also her quickest time of the
season, a split-second ahead of her pace
a week earlier at Cadott.
Hanna Guckenberg of Eau Claire
North was the girls champion in 20:11.4.
Baldwin-Woodvilles Bailey Meyer was
almost a minute behind at 21:10.1. Elli
Daniels of Chippewa Falls was exactly 10
seconds behind Meyer. Chippewa Falls
easily won the team title with 22 points,
followed by Marsheld (55), Baldwin-
Woodville (57), Rice Lake (110) and the
incomplete teams from Gilman and Eau
Claire North.
Eau Claire Memorials Patrick Treacy
won the boys race in 16:38, nishing
ahead of three Chi-Hi Cardinals Parker
Lehmann (17:22.7), Erik Sworski (18:05.7)
and Breaden Michael (18:11.3). Chippewa
Falls completed the team sweep with 43
points, outscoring Menomonie (64), Rice
Lake (82), Eau Claire Memorial (83) and
Marsheld (86). Gilman and Baldwin-
Woodville were incomplete.
Gilman will compete at the ve-team

Youth deer hunt provides opportunity to introduce young hunters to the outdoors
We did paddle to a nearby creek, set up our decoys
and Selina made an excellent shot on a mallard (her
only shot at a duck). Fire made a rusty but completed
blind retrieve.
I knew by 9 a.m. if Selina was going to get some
shooting, we were going to have to hunt somewhere
else. I made some calls and was told about a marsh by
Marsheld that can be a duck factory. So we pulled the
decoys, loaded everything up and headed to duck para-
Bad luck came our way when after one hour of wad-
ing through ankle to waist deep water; it became com-
pletely overgrown with brush and totally canoe inacces-
So now it is 2 p.m. and I have to come up with a plan
for the afternoon hunt. I made some calls, looked at
my map and made a 50-mile drive over to a marsh in
Monroe County that requires a long but beautiful canoe
trip down a creek.
As Selina and I entered duck paradise, we watched
dozens, if not hundreds, of wood ducks. We set out our
decoys and had two hours to hunt (remember, only
Selina is shooting). Selina only red four shells and
connected twice on a pair of woodies. I believe Fire will
have an excellent fall. If you are interested, I will be hav-
ing her bred this late fall when she comes into heat. On
that same matter, I am looking for a good stud.
Tonight, we had no idea where we were going to pull
our rig and sleep as we were going to return for the
morning hunt. Well after dark, I backed our house on

Youth duck hunt 2014
Hello friends,
Here is the scoop. My daughter Selina is 13, her gold-
en retriever Fire is four and the three of us are off for a
three-day adventure for Wisconsins youth duck hunt.
Friday, Sept. 19
High 73, Low 44
Life is good. The three of us are riding in a nice truck,
I am pulling an enclosed trailer that is loaded with gear
and our 17-foot canoe is on top of the truck. Yesterday, I
purchased a 12-gauge shotgun for Selina, which will re-
place my dads old Remington 1100. It was a great gun for
her, but its worn out and only shoots 2.75-inch shells.
Our destination is Sportsmans Lake, which is locat-
ed near Owen in Clark County. It is a beautiful piece of
water where I have had very good luck duck hunting in
past years.
Late today, we went scouting by canoe and stayed on
the water until dark. We did not really see any ducks
until dark, but we had high hopes there would be plenty
of action in the morning.
Tonight, we were both tired. Dinner consisted of a
jar of homemade salsa and granola bars while watching
a sky that was literally lled with lightning bolts from
storms that were just to the north.
Saturday, Sept. 20
High 72, Low 53
Selina can wake up in any outdoor situation, dress
properly for the conditions and enjoy her day. This
morning the two of us, along with Fire, were paddling
our canoe long before daylight and had decoys set up
with plenty of time to relax before legal shooting.
On a bit of a side note, Wisconsin had an early teal
season, which was held the rst week of September.
This teal season was a rst and many duck hunters have
been wondering how it might affect the traditional late
September opener.
Here is what Selina and I witnessed: the unmistak-
able and pleasant sound of waterfowl ying overhead,
long before night became day. When legal shooting be-
gan Selina did not come close to getting a shot.
Youth hunters and those interested in mentoring
young hunters are reminded to mark their calendars
for this years youth deer hunt. This special hunt takes
place October 11-12 and state wildlife ofcials say it pro-
vides a valuable learning experience and great oppor-
tunity to introduce young hunters to one of the many
outdoor opportunities Wisconsin has to offer.
The youth hunt allows boys and girls ages 10-15 to
hunt with a gun or other legal weapon prior to the regu-
lar rearm seasons. The youth hunt is open to all resi-
dent and non-resident youth hunters with a gun deer
license and appropriate tags.
Deer hunting in Wisconsin is an exciting time of
year, and the youth hunt is a perfect way to get young
folks interested in the outdoors with an adult close
by, said Keith Warnke, hunting and shooting sports
coordinator for the Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources. Experienced hunters provide important
guidance, advice and instruction to help build a frame-
work for constant safety improvement.
It is important to note that buck and antlerless deer
permit tags included with a junior gun deer license are
valid statewide for youth hunters.
All youth hunters must be accompanied by a mentor
18 years of age or older. Youth ages 12-15 with a hunter
education certicate may hunt within visual and voice
range of a mentor. When accompanying one or two
youth ages 12-15 that have successfully completed hunt-
er education, a mentor is not required to possess a hunt-
er education certicate or a current hunting license.
Hunters ages 10 and 11, as well as those ages 12-15
that have not completed hunter education, may gain
hunting experience under the Hunting Mentorship
Program. This program requires youth to hunt within
arms reach of a qualied mentor who has completed
hunter education and holds a current hunting license.
Only one weapon may be possessed jointly between
youth and mentor. Mentors may not hunt using a re-
arm during the youth deer hunt weekend and must pos-
sess a valid Wisconsin hunting license for the current
hunting season.
License type does not matter, unless the mentor will
be hunting other game.
Hunters of all ages are reminded to follow the four
rules of rearm safety:
Treat every gun as if it were loaded.
Always point the muzzle in a safe direction.
Be sure of your target and beyond.
Keep your nger out of the trigger guard until you
are ready to shoot.
First-time hunters and those who have not purchased
a license in at least 10 years are eligible for a discounted
rst-time buyer license. Visit and search
keyword license for more information.
As in previous years, those new to hunting can cel-
ebrate their rst harvest with the ofcial rst deer cer-
ticate. Simply follow the instructions on the page to
upload a photo of your rst deer and describe your ex-
perience. For more information, and to create your own
rst deer certicate, search keywords rst deer.
To learn more about youth hunting and general deer
season regulations, search keywords youth hunt and
deer respectively.
All deer hunters are encouraged to check out the fre-
quently asked questions page (
wildlifehabitat/dtrfaq.html) for more information re-
garding several rule changes for 2014. The FAQ feature
provides brief responses to a wide variety of deer hunt-
ing questions, ranging from deer management unit
boundaries to antlerless permits.

Eating Well with Diabetes
With Kate Bromann, County Market Nutritionist
Starting this November, County Market will be
providing an educational program for people
with diabetes that will focus on improving blood
sugar control by keeping track of carbohydrate
intake and making better food choices.
Eating Well with Diabetes is a two session
class led by Kate Bromann, County Markets
Nutritionist. Kate has over 20 years of experience
working with diabetes in a hospital and nursing
home setting. The cost for this program is $25
for both sessions and will meet from 5:30-7:30pm.
Dates are: November 6 & 13, January 3 & 10, and
February 26 & March 5.
Class participants will learn how to achieve
better blood sugar control by being aware of
how much and what type of carbohydrate foods
theyre eating and how these foods affect blood
sugar levels. Carbohydrate counting, or carb
counting is a meal planning technique for
managing blood sugar levels. Our focus will be
on creating a meal plan using the carb counting
method to help prevent the highs and lows in
blood sugar that can happen when carb intake is
inconsistent or sugar intake is excessive.
There are three types of carbohydrates found in
foods: Starches are found in grain-based foods like
breads, rice, pastas & cereals, starchy vegetables
like corn, peas, potatoes and beans. Sugars can be
naturally occurring sugars like those in milk or
fruit, and added sugars like white sugar, brown
sugar, molasses, honey, maple syrup and high
fructose corn syrup. Fiber is the indigestible part
of plant foods found in fruits, vegetables, whole
grains, nuts & legumes. Starches and sugars have
the greatest effect on blood sugar levels. Fiber is
not absorbed or converted into glucose and can
be helpful in achieving better blood sugar control
and managing hunger. How much and what type
of carbohydrates are eaten is a very important
factor in managing diabetes. An individualized
meal plan can help serve as a road map for your
carb food intake and will be a main focus of this
Cooking demonstrations and a supermarket tour
will also be a part of this program. Participants
will learn how to make healthy substitutions
in baked goods, how to incorporate more high
ber carbs into meals and how to avoid empty
calories high sugar, low nutrient foods that can
throw blood sugar control off. Learn to choose
instead the healthiest carbs with the highest
nutrient content. During the supermarket tour,
well scan the store shelves and read the Nutrition
Facts labels, zeroing in on the most important
information for making healthier choices. There
are LOTS of healthy choices and a wide variety
of carb foods that can be included in a meal plan
for controlling diabetes.

at 715-748-8561 and leave a voicemail, or send an
email to:

Rib lake and Gilman from the county
Each year, Taylor County Sheriffs
Department grants both Rib Lake and
Gilman $6,500 each in return for those
villages maintaining a police depart-
ment with the ability to respond to
county calls that are dispatched. This
benets the Sheriffs Department with
faster response times. Often the sher-
iffs deputies on patrol at the time of
a call may be on the other side of the
county and the Rib Lake or Gilman of-
cer could respond much faster.
The aid payments from the county
to the villages are nothing new and
have been going on for many years.
However, this year they came under
attack from Supervisor Paul Hoffmann
who represents District 6 including the
Town of Chelsea. Hoffmann is also the
former police chief for the Village of

minutes against the Antigo Red Robins
as the Medford Raiders boys soccer team
claimed a 4-0 victory last Thursday.
Forward Ben Nelson opened the scor-
ing for Medford in the rst minute of the
game, taking advantage of poor defend-
ing by the Robins back line.
Felix tallied his 10th goal of the GNC
season in the second minute of the game,
putting home a volley from inside the
6-yard box. He struck again one minute
later after dribbling around several de-
fenders to make it 3-0 for the Raiders af-
ter three minutes.
Wanting to get valuable minutes for
the younger players, coach Felix put
most of the starters on the bench with
the game already well in hand. The
youngsters played well, controlling most
of the possession against the Robins and
didnt concede a goal.
After getting a good chance to rest,
Felix bagged his hat trick in the 73rd
minute after linking on the end of a loft-
ed pass over the top of the defense. The
three goals put him at 12 for the year in
the GNC, good enough for second in the
Coach Felix was happy with his teams

game four, but Sophia Pernsteiner got a
shot to roll off the tape and fall, sparking
a mini three-point run that ended with a
Maggie Baker ace and a 13-9 lead. After
Rhinelander got within 17-15, Laher and
Dahl got kills and Rau served an ace to
make it 20-15. The Hodags pulled with-
in 21-19 with a block and a push from
Aschenbrenner, but Dahls off-speed shot
was unable to be returned, the Hodags
hit into two more errors and Lammar
ended things at 25-19 with a resounding
block against Aschenbrenner.
Pernsteiner had eight kills for the
Raiders in the win, Lammar had two
and Jenna Klemm had one. Lammar
added four tip kills, while Rau had two.
Lammar led the team with 11 assists,
while Klemm added six. Baker had 11
digs, while Dahlby and Higgins had six.
Dahlby was a perfect 28 for 28 in serv-
