Relay For Life

The Stoughton-Oregon-McFarland Relay For
Life group held its annual walk Friday, June 17,
to Saturday, June 18. The
event, which raised more
than $77,000 for cancer
research this year, allows
cancer survivors, caregivers and other supporters to

come together to support

ending the disease. Participants set up games and
activities along a walking
lap route while others walk
around the loop.

Pig: Replaced by 4-H Olympics

Continued from page 1
payment to cover lost revenues. The boards statement
about its decision indicated
strong objections remain
and said the Common
Council forced the cancellation of this event just
two weeks before it was to
occur (July 1).
The statement called pig
wrestling a signature part
of the Stoughton Fair for
seven years.
We expect to lose a lot
more in revenue than the
$6,000 donation from the
city, the fairs statement
said. This will not only
hurt the thousands of people in Stoughton that look
forward to this event each
year, but also the agricultural community in our area as
a whole.
Fa i r b o a r d p r e s i d e n t
Luther Sperle declined to
discuss the boards decision. Im not going to
comment at all about it, he
told the Hub on Monday,
June 20.
The fairs official Facebook page on Sunday, June
19 posted an unusual photo
of pigs lying on the backs
of motorcycles. The post
was taken down by Monday, June 20.
Sperle said that the board
decided to find another
event for July 1, moving the
lighthearted 4-H Olympics
from Thursday, June 30, to
the grandstand on Friday,
July 1.
A Madisons Alliance
for Animals petition generated more than 10,000
signatures online to protest the fairs pig wrestling
event, and the group said
it would protest at the fair
if pig wrestling were held.

Locally, an alder vowed to

introduce an ordinance to
ban the practice, and the
Common Council showed
some support for the potential action during a threehour debate Tuesday night
before offering the $6,000
as a compromise, based on
the fair boards estimate of
its income from the event.
Mayor Donna Olson told
the Hub on that the fair
boards attorney informed
her of the decision 28 minutes before the noon deadline on Thursday, June 16.
It provides a peaceful
environment for the fair,
Olson said of the canceling
the event, which involves
teams of people placing a
pig on a barrel. (The fair
has) always been a great
event for Stoughton for 91
Olson said she received
a call last Thursday morning from a resident asking
about using $6,000 in city
tax money to stop pig wrestling.
The answer is its a
council decision, Olson
said, adding that the Council voted 9-0 to approve the
one-time donation. Its
good to have resolution to
this so that our businesses
can feel comfortable as well
as those visiting the fair.
The Alliance for Animals board president Lynn
Pauly expressed slight frustration to the Hub Sunday,
June 19, at the fair boards
stern statement.
People will still come to
the fair, Pauly said, but
it wont culminate with a
cruel and aggressive event,
which in my mind, is a
good thing.

Pig wrestling debate

leads to compromise
City to pay fair to end event
Unified Newspaper Group

Dist. 2 Ald. Michael Engelberger

led the Common Councils opposition
to pig wrestling last week, arguing the
controversial Stoughton Junior Fair
event was giving the city a bad reputation and had the potential to harm
local business.
Engelberger, who had written a letter to the board the previous week
promising to outlaw pig wrestling in
Stoughton, requested the council add a
discussion of such an ordinance to its
agenda. He argued the event is probably illegal under state law, doesnt
teach children proper values that
conform to 4H principles and could
even be a public health problem.
This is an emotional issue, he said
during the debate Tuesday, June 14.
I didnt bring this forward to create
a conflict or step on anybodys toes,
but I feel its an event that doesnt put
Stoughton in a good light as a community.
Ultimately, alders decided to hold
off on creating an ordinance, but
instead offered the Stoughton Fair
Association $6,000 if the organization
would cancel the event.
Engelbergers motion had the

support of a majority of the council,

but four alders Lawrence, Majewski,
Jenson and Dennis Kittleson (D-1)
voted against for various reasons.
Lawrence said he was ready and
able to pass an ordinance banning the
event, but he felt forcing the cancellation this year would be unfair because
it was coming at the 11th hour and
that last-minute legislation was not the
way to develop public policy.
My point is respect and due process, he said. We dont push people
around, in general.
He also objected to paying the Fair
Association with tax money from the
citys contingency fund, and Mayor
Donna Olson agreed. However, his
motion to postpone discussion of the
offer failed for lack of a second.
That point also resonated with Jenson and Kittleson.
Jenson said it almost feels like
bribery. Kittleson said the city should
find a way to help the organization but
should not pay tax dollars to stop the
Kittleson was also critical of the
council being always reactive
instead of out in front of such issues.
Alds. Regina Hirsch (D-3) and Sid
Boersma (D-1) countered that they
had approached the Fair Board last
year and had asked that it consider
ending pig wrestling. They said the
board rejected the request.

We said wed like to help, Boersma said. The response we had last
year was forget it were not going to
Boersma told the council he grew up
on a farm raising animals and that he
was taught to love animals and treat
them with respect.
Hirsch called pig wrestling animal
cruelty and said the event sent a bad
message to young people.
There are many more ways for the
kids to learn teamwork and strategy,
she said.
She agreed with the majority that the
city should make up for any financial
loss for one year until an ordinance is
in place.
Ald. Tass Johnson (D-1) said pig
wrestling seems absurd and agreed
the city should help the fair by compensating it for any lost revenue.
Ald. Tom Selsor (D-4) said he
opposed the event but also thought it
unfair to stop it two weeks before it
was planned to take place.
Any reduction in gate entrance revenue should be covered by the city,
Selsor said.
Twenty-three people spoke during a
public comment section of Tuesdays
meeting, with 10 many of them fair
board members speaking in support
of the event, and 13 opposed.

Council clears way for training course

Zoning amendment
allows outdoor use
in business park
Unified Newspaper Group

the process of building an

outdoor (nonpermanent fixture) obstacle course in the
spring of 2016, Brooks
wrote in his application
requesting the amendment.
This expansion will occupy
approximately 5,000 square
feet behind the building.
Brooks plans to use the
obstacle course to work
with Wisconsin veterans
and create a safe haven

course will be specifically designed in a military
style, Brooks wrote, to
allow veterans to practice

We hope to pride ourselves on becoming a center for military veterans to

On June 15, 2016, the Stoughton City Council

passed a motion stating that, if the Stoughton Fair
cancels its pig wrestling event for 2016, then the City
will make a $6,000 donation to the Stoughton Fair.
The City Council also threatened to pass a new ordinance in the next two weeks banning pig wrestling if
the Fair Board rejected their proposal.
While the Stoughton Fair appreciates the offer of a
donation from the City Council, the Fair is still disappointed the Council forced the cancellation of this
event just two weeks before it was scheduled to occur.
The City Council threatened to pass an ordinance
banning pig wrestling, effective the day of the event,
despite the fact that this event has been held for the
past seven years without incident.
The Pig Wrestling event has been a signature part
of the Stoughton Fair for seven years. There havent
been any injuries, human or animal, in the almost
decade long tradition. A lot of kids and adults are
going to be highly disappointed by this decision, but
the City Council forced our hand and in the process left us absolutely no time to find an adequate
replacement for the Fair in two weeks. We expect to
lose a lot more in revenue than the $6,000 donation
from the City. This will not only hurt the thousands
of people in Stoughton that look forward to this event
each year, but also the agricultural community in our
area as a whole.
While were disappointed, we hope citizens of
Stoughton and Southern Wisconsin still come out to
support our farmers and enjoy the other festivities the
fair has to offer.

Community Voices

Mission work is about

both giving and receiving

ove Begins Here is here.

This program is a mission of love by middle
and h
igh school students. An
apostolate of the Catholic Diocese of Madison, it works to
provide youth with an opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ
in a life-changing way through
a weeklong, local mission trip
where they live in a community
and continue His work.
St. Ann
Church is
hosting one of
these trips this
week with high
school teens.
It involves 100
high school
students and
from parishes in the Diocese of Madison,
which covers 11 counties in
south central Wisconsin.
These students didnt go to
another country or another state.
They came right here to Stoughton. Theyre serving our neighbors and ourlocal community,
giving attention to and helping
During this service mission,
the group is reaching out to and
helping shut-insand the elderly.
Examples of work being done
are painting, cleaning and yard
St. Anns will also reach out to
local organizations and charities

to help them in their mission to

help others. The organizations
that are serving include Skaalen,
Nazareth House, VFW, Youth
Center, Holly House and MARC.
Neither the teens nor the chaperones will receive any monetary
compensation for their work.
The purpose of their work is to
serve God and His people, do
small things with great love,
discover the great joy that comes
from caring and helping, bring
Gods love to all whom they
meet and be with other high
school teens who are on fire with
their faith.
I know personally how
life-changing and valuable these
missions can be, and not just for
those receiving the help.
I have known people who have
gone on many missions. Some
have been to far-away places like
China, Africa, Mexico and South
America, and others have been
closer, such as the Carolinas,
Missouri, Alabama, Minnesota
or other places in Wisconsin. I
have done some myself.
The people who go on these
missions give up vacation time,
often pay for their own travel
expenses and living expenses.
They could have used their time
and money to go on a nice vacation, but they did not. They went
on a mission.
It is easy to see what they give.
It could be health care, building
houses, bringing and distributing
much-needed supplies, education

or faith in God. They all give

But the missionaries also
receive. They receive gratitude,
respect and an understanding of
other ways of life and thinking.
Their minds and their hearts
open up and get bigger.
They often see a simpler way
of life. They see a happiness that
has nothing to do with possessions. They see people who are
happy just to be alive.
When they return from these
missions whether three years
or a week most people are
changed. They deepen their
appreciation for what they have
and for whom they love. They
start to live simpler lives.
If you talk to someone who
has come back from a mission,
they will often tell you, I
received more than I gave.
The presence of these teens in
Stoughton showsus how God
loves every town,every place
and everyone. Missionaries show
us that God does care, that high
school students are living the
faith and that, with God, our
future is bright.
If you see them around town,
let them know that you are
glad they are here, and that you
appreciate the work they are
freely giving.

County to recycle clean wood

Unified Newspaper Group

Flooded with clean wood

waste due to the advance
of the Emerald Ash Borer,
Dane County plans to begin
recycling the materials at
the county landfill starting
next month.
Dane County Executive
Joe Parisi announced the
decision Monday, noting
that local private and public
facilities have become overwhelmed and have stopped
taking wood waste. Clean
wood can be recycled to
turn into landscaping mulch
or even alternative fuel.
This is a common sense
solution and we are uniquely able to recycle wood
waste, he said. Opening
up the recycling facility to
process clean wood will
help local municipalities,
businesses and residents in
Dane County with a need
no other entity is filling.
Once the program starts
in late July, the county
will charge $40 per ton for
wood waste and will work
with the operators of its
new Construction and Demolition Recycling Facility
to include wood recycling.

Wisconsin county to develop a comprehensive plan to

battle the emerald ash borer.
An ordinance was introduced last week at the Dane
County Board to create
a tipping fee for the purpose of clean wood waste

recycling. It will need

board approval before Dane
County can implement the
new clean wood recycling
program. If approved, the
new wood recycling program could start as soon as
July 18.

I-39/90 bridge replacement projects has begun,
with bridges at County BN,
Church Street and Williams

use for four months each as
new bridges will be built in
the same locations. The $7
million project is expected
to be completed in mid-December, according to a Wisconsin Department of Transportation press release
Reconstruction has
started on the County BN
bridge, and starting in late
June, it will be removed for
four months. Motorists are
required to use alternate
local routes.
Similarly, the Church

to be removed in mid-July, and the Williams Drive
bridge (near the County
Hwy. N interchange) in

Brehm said he is especially excited about bringing The Gomers to the festival. The bands wacky stage
show and stellar musical
chops have made them a
perennial Madison favorite.
Theyve gained local adoration for their appearances at
High Noon Saloon, where
for years theyve staged a
weekly Gomeroke show.
(Its similar to karaoke but
with The Gomers playing
live from their repertoire of
thousands of hits.)
Brehm said The Gomers
appearance at Catfish River should be memorable
because the band is about to
go on hiatus.
Theyre not going to
play a lot after July, he
said. Theyll play an hour
and a half and will do about

Theyll also do some original tunes.

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, Lord, how many times
shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to
seven times? Jesus answered, I tell you, not seven times, but
seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22 NIV

Mike Smits Dale Holzhuter

Martha Paton, Administrative Manager
Sara Paton, Administrative Assistant
Paul Selbo, Funeral Assistant



1358 Hwy 51, Stoughton

An important theme which runs through the Bible is the inability

of humankind, both individually and collectively, to keep our promises. The Israelites are chastised again and again for stubbornly
pursuing their own selfish interests and breaking the covenant
they had with God. God continues to forgive them, and in the New
Testament when Peter asks Jesus how many times he should forgive his neighbor, Jesus tells him that he should forgive him not
just seven times, but seventy-seven times, reflecting the divine
patience for human weakness. We are all prone to breaking our
promises and to sinning against God and our fellow man, and
should be comforted by His everlasting mercy. Our sinning will
someday come to an end, but His mercy and forgiveness will last
forever. Strive to be more faithful in your own life and to mirror
Gods everlasting mercy when those around you fall short.

Sperle residence is
June Yard of the Month
The Stoughton Heritage Garden Club has chosen the
residence of Shirley Sperle at 604 Severson Dr. as the
June Yard of the Month.
Seasonal highlights that provide vivid color in her
front yard include lupines, mandevilla, geraniums and
peonies, while verdant shrubs such as boxwood and holly enhance the garden year-round.
Since moving here in 2011, Sperle has also put in nearly a dozen trees and a rock garden that covers the entire
length of the backyard. She said that it is not uncommon
to see cranes, foxes and deer from her patio door, adding
to her love for the neighborhood.
Stoughton Heritage Garden Club meets the third Tuesday of the month, and guests are welcome anytime.

Q. Why is an appraisal necessary? Cant I just use the tax

value of the home?

Kathleen C. Aiken

A. An appraisal compares the current market value of the home youd like to buy
to other homes in the area that have recently been sold. Tax values can sometimes
be higher or lower and may not reflect the actual appraised value of the home. A
recent appraisal is necessary to confirm the propertys current value. You should not,
however, rely on the appraisal as a warranty for assurance about the condition of the
home or its value.

maintain independence rather than receive care in a nursing home or other long-term facility.
According to the AARP, nine out of ten members polled state that it is very important to extremely
important to have access to services that will allow elders to live independently within their own
homes for as long as possible.
Thanks to home based elder care, this desire is absolutely attainable. Elder care providers such as
Comfort Keepers offer a wide array of services geared toward the elder living at home. Because
of the services provided, elder care continues to grow in popularity, and is projected to do so over

the next several years.

With modern advancements in technology and healthcare, new options for receiving care become more prominent and
accessible to elders.
With cost benefits as well as benefits to elders overall well-being, it is no surprise that the popularity of elder care has
grown exponentially. Recognizing these things, it demonstrates that the value of comfort and independence is priceless.

Local teen promotes message of

self-confidence after hair donation
Unified Newspaper Group

When 17-year-old Charles

Ree began growing out his
hair in February 2015, the
decision held little weight
and seemed like an easy way
to change up his appearance.
More than a year later, his
head may be feeling weightless, as well, after cutting
off eight inches of his shoulder-length locks. The choice
to do so, though, carries a little more significance.
Last fall, Ree began considering how those either
undergoing chemotherapy
or experiencing other illnesses might suffer a loss in
self-confidence as they lose
their hair, experience lack
of hair growth or try to cope
with a change in their appearance that they cant control.
As much fun as I was having with my shoulder length
hair, I realized that not everybody gets the opportunity to

Utica had several generations in the dugout during its Fathers Day game against Lake Mills, including manager Dale Vike grandson Dierks (right) and the
son of third baseman Christian Stokstad Harvey (center).

A family tradition

Utica piles up runs early

against Lake Mills
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

Utica did most of its damage in

the first four innings Sunday, scoring 10 runs en route to 14-4 victory
over the visiting Lake Mills Grays.
In a much-needed win to keep
pace in the Southeast Section playoff race, it was lead-off hitter Andy
Martin a 21-year Home Talent
League veteran who stole the
show in front of his children on
Fathers Day.
It is special. I know my kids

wanted me to play the last couple

of years. They love coming here,
he said. It made my decision pretty
Martin drove in two runs and
scored the game-winner, but perhaps more importantly, the outfielder led a Utica defense that had
struggled in recent games.
Utica (5-3) and Lake Mills (5-2)
entered the game separated by half
a game in third place in each others
side of the Southeast Section.
Fort Atkinson (8-0) and Clinton
(6-3) lead the East Division, while
Albion (7-2) is pacing the West
Utica is tied with McFarland
(6-3) after the Muskies lost 4-1 to

Clinton last weekend. Both McFarland and Albion have beaten Utica
head-to-head this season, though.
Im glad that theyre scoring
runs, but I was more glad to see us
playing good defense, manager
Dale Vike said. We had eight or
nine errors against Deerfield and we
were lucky to beat them. Once we
started committing a few errors we
got in our own heads.
The top two from each division
advance to the playoffs, however,
if the third-place team on one side
has an equal or better record and
a head-to-head win over the second-place team on the other, then
that team can steal the last playoff
spot. That is exactly what happened

last season as Lake Mills kept Utica

out of the playoffs.
We have some really good teams
in our division and Lake Mills has
been a rivalry game the past couple
of years, Martin said. Every loss
is big. Every win is big. Weve got
to try and stick with those teams
ahead of us. It will be tight at the
end of the season no matter what.
Doug Vike walked to lead off
the bottom of the third inning and
advanced to third base on a Chris
Lund double before Schultz singled
him home. Lund was thrown out
at the plate trying to score behind

Fair: Tractor pull, fireworks will close out event

the public opening will be
Wednesday. And since the
Fourth of July falls on a Monday this year, the fair will be
extended until that evening
and end with its annual fireworks display at 9:30p.m.
The sudden elimination
of pig wrestling from Friday
evenings grandstand lineup left fair board members
scrambling to fill the void,
Sperle said. But members
met Monday evening and
decided to switch the time
and place of the 4-H Olympics (which would have been
held Thursday evening at the
arena) to the grandstand on
Friday since it was too short
of notice to book a paid act,
said board member Rob
Board vice president Trevor Dybevik described the 4-H
Olympics as a longtime tradition with family-reunion
type of fun. All of the 4-H
clubs form teams and participate in a variety of games
that change annually, such as
tug-of-war and balloon or egg
Its something the kids
look forward to and have a
ball, Dybevik said of the
friendly competition, which
will be free to watch.
The 4-H Olympics also
focus on team-building exercises, Dybevik said, and Level Up Fitness will be back
to help organize the event
and come up with ideas for
games. Last year, activities
included rolling a round bale
across the ring and being the
first team to dress a sheep
with clothes.
White said given everything thats happened recently, the fair will probably
steer clear of dressing animals.
The grandstand will still
host other animal activities
throughout the week, though.
The horse pull will be back
on Thursday, June 30, and a
rodeo featuring sheep and
bull riding and barrel racing
with horses will be held Saturday, July 2. Sperle said its
been about nine years since
the fair has held a rodeo.
Engines will also rev up
the grandstand. Vehicles from
local fire, police and EMS
departments, as well as Med
Flight and possibly Jaws of
Life, will be available for
families to check out during
Safety Night at 7p.m.
Wednesday, June 29. Then
the Antique Tractor Pullers
will make their fair debut at
noon Saturday, July 2, a new

to pop some balloons will be

James Craig

Dr. James Jim L. Craig,

of New Richmond, passed
away on Wednesday, June
15, 2016, at Westfields Hospital, surrounded by loving
family. He was 88 years old.
James was born July 10,
1927, in Baraboo, Wis., at
St. Mary Ringling Hospital. He was the son of Harold and Marcia (Langemo)
Craig. Most of his childhood
years were spent in Stoughton, where his family owned
and operated the Stoughton
Shoe and Leather Company.
After graduating from high
school in 1945, he attended
the University of Wisconsin
as an undergrad, followed by
medical school. He became a
Doctor of Medicine on June
20, 1952.
D r. C r a i g c o n t i n u e d
his medical studies in
Youngstown, Ohio, with a
residency in internal medicine. This was put on hold
when he served his country
as a 1st Lieutenant in the
Army at a battalion aid station in Korea. Upon return,
he completed his residency
with the goal of preparing
well for the challenges of
becoming a family doctor
(or general practitioner as
it was known then).

Send it here
In 1957, Dr. Craig traveled the state of Wisconsin
searching for an ideal location to practice medicine.
He was happy to find a
job opening
at the New
Richmond Clinic, where
he joined Dr. Joshua Armstrong and Dr. Louis Weisbrod to pursue his career. It
was New Richmonds proximity to the Twin Cities and
the opportunities there for
postgraduate studies that
appealed to him.
On December 27, 1961,
Jim was united in marriage
to the county nurse, Carolyn
Jean Adams, at the Methodist Church in Lake Delton,
Wis. They were blessed
with two children, Paul
Douglas and Dana Lynne.
He was a loving husband
and a devoted father, who
truly enjoyed guiding and
watching his children grow
to adulthood. Recently, he
attended the college graduation of his granddaughter,
Michelle, at North Dakota
State University. He was so
proud of her accomplishments as a student of agriculture sciences and business.
Opera buff, wine connoisseur, avid reader, lifelong scholar, stock watcher, philanthropist: These
are just a few of the words
that describe Jims many
interests. He also enjoyed
hunting, fishing, camping,
hiking, archery, skiing and
gardening. After retiring
in 1995, Jim and Carolyn
traveled throughout much
of the country. Their adventures took them from coast
to coast and to Canada and
Mexico on multiple occasions with family and close
friends. Hawaii, Steamboat


Springs, Colo., and Branson, Mo. were among his

favorite places.
Jim was a charter director
of the New Richmond Area
Community Foundation,
and served the foundation in
many capacities from 1980
to 2008, including board
chairman. He was a member
of the Pierce-St. Croix Medical Society and the Wisconsin Medical Society. He
also served on the St. Croix
County Health and Human
Services Board for many
James is survived by his
wife of nearly 55 years, Carolyn Adams Craig; his son,
Paul D. Craig and his wife,
Kimberly, of Menomonie;
his daughter, Dana L. Craig
of New Richmond; and his
granddaughter, Michelle
L. Craig of Ladysmith. His
sister-in-law Lois Droes
of Marion; brother-in-law
Mackey Adams of Berlin,
N.J.; five nieces and nephews and five great-nieces
and nephews also survive
A Celebration of Life
for Dr. Craig will be held
at 11a.m. Friday, June
24 at the United Methodist Church, 209 East 2nd
Street, New Richmond, with
Pastor Cathy Hamblin officiating. Visitation starts at
10a.m. There will also be
a visitation from 4-8p.m.
Thursday, June 23 at the
Bakken Young Beebe Chapel at 112 West 3rd Street in
New Richmond.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the
New Richmond Area Community Foundation or to
a charity of your choice.
Arrangements are with
Bakken-Young Funeral &
Cremation Services Beebe

In late June 1941, Virgil and Mary Lou Lamb went on a brief
honeymoon to Green Lake.

In 2012, they sold their

home in Brooklyn and
moved to a duplex near
Skaalen Retirement Services
in Stoughton.
In the last decade, their
two oldest daughters died

from illness. The Lambs

have 10 grandchildren and
even more great-grandchildren.
Theyve celebrated prominent anniversaries.
We had a party over at
Stoughton Country Club.
Which one was that? Fifty?
Mary Lou asked her husband.
I think so, Virgil said.
A private, small celebration for the 75th anniversary
will happen later this summer with immediate family. The Lambs dont have a
wedding photo, and Mary
Lous wedding ring small
and beautiful, she said
was lost several years ago.
The couple reflected on
their 75th anniversary and,
if their health holds, a few
more could happen. Mary

Oh, yes. Virgil said.

There were difficult times.
