Bill Livick
Unified Newspaper Group

A Verona-based company is proposing to develop


a hotel on the villages
south side and is seeking
$1 million in tax increment financing assistance
from the village to help
fund the project.
Village officials have
hoped for a hotel for several years, but despite

some interest, nothing has


happened so far.
Eric Lund, owner of
Verona-based S&L Hospitality, appeared briefly
before the Village Board
Monday to discuss his
proposal. The plan first
came to the village in the
form of a letter sent to
administrator Mike Gracz
on Oct. 6.
Lund is proposing to
build a 75-room Sleep

Birds of prey
Dianne Moller of Hoos Woods Raptor Center visited the senior center on Oct. 17, to show off
three birds of prey.

Above, Moller discusses the features of a spectacled owl while showing Oakley to the audience. She also
explained to the group of 20 how the three birds (a spectacled owl, a snowy owl and a merlin falcon) came into
her groups care. Moller and other representatives from the center visit locations around Wisconsin to share
knowledge about the raptor birds and their habitats.

Hotel: Village asked developer to pay for TIF study


Continued from page 1
development on or near
Park Street, east of Headquarters Bar and Restaurant.
The entire developer incentive would be payable once
the hotel is up and running,
and borrowing for it would
be paid back by recaptured
taxes.
This assistance will
allow us to have a couple
of years to ramp up the rate
and occupancy and allow
for our investors to get small
returns, Lund wrote.
He told the Village Board
the TIF assistance would
help get the attention of an
investor or otherwise sustain us until we stabilize the
project.
The board then went into
closed session to discuss the
request.
On Tuesday, Gracz told
the Observer the board had

authorized him to inform


Lund the village would like
to go forward with the TIF
analysis whats called
a gap analysis but S&L
would have to pay for the
analysis.
The analysis, which
Gracz said would cost about
$2,500, would evaluate
whether the project merits
TIF assistance by passing
the state-mandated but for
test of whether it could or
would happen without the
taxpayer money or without
the full amount.
The analysis would tell
us when the hotel would
start to help pay the debt
service on the loan, Gracz
explained. A lot of times,
if you dont do a pay-asyou-go TIF loan, then the
village is fronting the first
couple of years until the
hotel value hits the full
assessed value.

TIF is a public financing method that is used as a


subsidy for redevelopment,
infrastructure, and other
community-improvement
projects by capturing property tax revenue from all
underlying taxing jurisdictions (the city, county, state,
technical college and the
school district) of the newly
developed property.
Village officials would
like to see a hotel built
here to provide rooms for
visitors and because a hotel
room tax would help fund
tourism promotion efforts.
Gracz said developers have
shown interest in developing
a hotel in Oregon numerous
times, but so far nothing has
come of their inquiries.
Its hard to say how long
it will take to complete the
TIF analysis, Gracz said.
Hes working with Lund
to gather the necessary

information to begin working on it.


A hotel feasibility study
that the village commissioned in November 2012
reported that a 70-room
hotel in the Village of Oregon could bring in nearly
$2.4 million in room and
food and beverage revenues
in its third year of operation and could generate
$130,000 annually in room
taxes, though the majority
of room taxes must be spent
promoting tourism.
Inn Development and
Management Group LLC
estimated in its report that
within five years after
opening, a hotel could draw
approximately 17,370
lodging room-nights,
create 25 to 33 full-time
equivalent jobs and have an
overall positive economic impact to Oregon from
retail sales.

Lease: Developer, village differ on who is at fault


It will connect East Netherwood Street with East Richards Road, running behind
Walgreens, the State Bank
of Cross Plains and other
Main Street businesses.
Developer Jim Lease,
owner of Lease Construction, expects the street to be
completed this year. He met
with the Village Board at its
Oct. 5 meeting and again
Monday to discuss the cost
overruns.
Public works director
Jeff Rau explained that
Leases engineer neglected
to consider stormwater outlets at Walgreens and the
State Bank of Cross Plains
when designing Thompson
Drive. The engineer also
was not aware of a curb
cut behind the bank, which
was intended to become
a driveway to the rear of
the bank once Thompson
Drive is completed. And
the engineer did not plan
for a stormwater connection
for two commercial lots on
the west side of Thompson Drive, lots that Lease
Development (Jim Leases
mother, Mary Jo Lease)
does not own.
Rau recommended the
village pay the estimated
$10,000 cost of bringing storm sewer to the two
commercial lots.
These lots are not owned
by the developer and may
be developed in the future,
requiring stormwater measures and a connection to
the storm sewer system,
Rau wrote in a memo to the
board. When these lots are
developed, the village may
consider recouping some of
the cost at that time.
Lease asked the village
to pay for some of the extra
expense, he said, because
his engineer had asked
about all this stuff earlier
and nobody could give us a
good answer.
Rau explained that the
stormwater outlets, curb cut

and connections needed for


the commercial lots were
discovered when Capital
Underground the company
building the road cleared
the site for construction.
Lease requested the village to pay $12,000 toward
the project, but said he was
pleased with the boards
responsiveness.
Rau said he and Lease
differed on who was
responsible for the oversights, but recommended
the village pay $10,000 to
offset the extra expense.
You deal with water
entering your property, on
your property and leaving
your property, Rau said
in explaining the situation
to village trustees. Thats
part of development.
In his memo to the board,
Rau wrote, Mr. Lease and
his family have contributed
significantly to the development of this area, and
his continued development
of this and other lands will
continue to benefit the village in the future.
He added that the remaining costs should be paid
by Lease as part of regular improvements through
development of Thompson
Drive.

developed the area from


North Perry Parkway to
Thompson Drive (looking at it from east to west)
and from East Netherwood
Street to East Richards
Road (going south to north)
about 80 lots in all, Lease
estimated.
The property was part of
the Lease Family Farm. Jim
Lease began developing
sites about 20 years ago, he
said.
My mom owns the land,
and were developing it
gradually, Lease said. My
business (Lease Construction) is building the homes
and I handle things for her
on the development end of
it.
He plans to build eight
duplexes along Thompson
Drive some of the lots
may be sold to other builders and said his family
has property about the size
of whats already been
developed in the Merri-Hill
subdivision that could be
developed in the future.
He was uncertain about
the total acreage already
developed, but guessed it
could be around 40 acres.
Most of our development has been rather selfcontained on our own land,
but then when you get to

Socialization is crucial to
having a happy, healthy dog
Dog ownership affords many
benefits to people and dogs alike.
Stroking a dog lowers the
blood pressure and heart rate and
releases oxytocin in both
species, claims
renowned animal behaviorist
Dr. Patricia
McConnell.
Spending just
five minutes
with a dog has
Antolec
been shown
to increase
immune system antibodies in
people, she says, and even gazing
into one another eyes increases
oxytocin levels.
It seems like a magical relationship, but there is a problem.
Each year 2 million dogs die in
dog shelters. Most were given up
due to behavioral problems. And
thats the leading cause of death
in dogs 3 and younger. Of dogs
that are adopted, too many are
returned to repeat the cycle.
There are several basic reasons
for this failure.
One, explains Dr. Ian Dunbar,
is there are already too many
dogs and not enough people who
want them.
Breeders fail to socialize and
train puppies before selling them.
Veterinarians fail to emphasize to
owners the urgent need to socialize them. Trainers fail to help
owners complete the socialization process or fix training and
behavior problems. Shelters fail
to prepare dogs for successful
adoption.
Perhaps worst of all, we tend to
blame dog owners.
I remember when my wife and
I brought home our puppy; we

knew nothing about socialization


or training -- and nobody told us
what had to be done.
I have spent years since then
studying training and behavior,
and I just hope I can help other
dog owners avoid the mistakes
we made then.
Before you get a dog, be sure
you evaluate your lifestyle and
write a list of pros and cons to
honestly determine whether
keeping a pet dog is a good fit
for you.
Always keep in mind that lack
of socialization is a greater threat
to the life of your dog than any
other factor.
If you want a puppy, seriously
consider how very much time,
effort and work that requires.
The puppy brain develops in 16
weeks, and the primary socialization process ends then. Most
people neither understand it nor
devote themselves to the effort.
If youre not up to that sort of
commitment, consider adopting
a dog in foster care with a rescue
organization. You can visit the
dog in a family environment, see
how it behaves and learn from
them far more about the dog
than if you were to visit a typical
shelter. We adopted our last four
dogs from 18-24 months of age
and saw exactly what we were
getting, with great success.
If you do get a dog or already
have one, here are some tips to
set you and your dog up for success:
Prepare for the arrival of
your dog as you would prepare
for the arrival of a new infant.
Dunbar offers Before Getting
Your Puppy and After Getting
Your Puppy as free eBook PDF
downloads from DogStarDaily.

com. You will learn all you need


to know.
Establish relationships with
a veterinarian and a force-free
trainer prior to getting your dog.
A qualified trainer can help you
select your dog, and you will be
off to a running start from Day 1.
Get a complete medical
examination as soon as you have
your dog, and begin the process
of socialization and training. It
is never too soon, but it is often
too late.
Fall and winter are the worst
seasons to get a puppy; spring
and summer are the best. People
are more socially active in nice
weather.
Engage your dog as a full
member of the family, involved
in car rides, visits to social activities, daily exercise and play time,
and all sorts of things you would
do with a new human member of
the family.
Dogs that are well socialized,
have basic training and live as
full members of the family have
been proven to be stable, predictable and happy. They will be prepared to spend an entire lifetime
gazing into your eyes, snuggling
with you and sharing a loving
relationship.

Pedro and Lorenzo Cruz Sunu will be on hand Saturday for an artist reception as part of a three-day art
sale of Lorenzos Mayan paintings. The reception is 2-6 p.m. Saturday, and the sale is Oct. 23-25 at the
home of Robin and Bob Postel, 3636 Casara Road, Oregon.

had told his father that he


wanted to become an artist.
Because of his familys
poor financial situation,
Cruz Sunu did not attend
school. By the time he was
13, he had left home to
work on farms to help support his family.
With a bit of cash hed
earned, Lorenzo started to
paint during his free time.
It was soon apparent that
he had a remarkable talent,
and before long he was selling his art in the galleries of
Lake Atitlan.

Meanwhile, his brother,


Pedro, had gone on to study
and earn a masters degree
in elementary education.
But rather than pursue his
own career, Pedro decided
to help his brother sell his
paintings and achieve a
lifelong goal of becoming a
successful artist.
Lorenzo Cruz Sunus oilon-canvas paintings feature
the bright, bold colors of
his culture while depicting
various aspects of Mayan
heritage and way of life.
Through translator Victor
Ortega, Cruz Sunu said he
had always been interested
in colored pencils and all
he ever wanted to do was
draw. He is the only artist in his large family of
eight siblings and had never
received instruction.
Its a gift from God,
Cruz Sunu said, who paints
a little bit of everything
landscapes, the people and
things about the Mayan culture.
One of his favorite subjects is portraying Mayan

people in native clothing.


Often, those paintings show
people from behind because
the back is where the most
interesting designs are on
the clothing, he said.
He also likes to play
with different perspectives.
Many of his paintings are
done in what he called a
birds eye view from
the top looking down on
the action. Others are done
from an ants perspective,
looking up.
Cruz Sunu said he likes
to represent Mayan culture and people, particularly women, because its a
way to preserve the culture
for future generations and
introduce it to the outside
world. He typically sketches his subject first in pencil,
and then begins applying
the paint, he said. He often
paints 10 or 11 hours per
day.
I would like to do more
but I must rest my eyes,

Robin Postel traveled


to Guatemala in 2008 and
recalls being smitten with
the brightly colored indigenous artwork that she
encountered, particularly
in highland Mayan villages. When Postel saw some
paintings online about five
years later, she recognized
their Mayan origin and
decided to contact the artist, Lorenzo Cruz Sunu,
through his Facebook page.
I got in touch with him,
and he and his brother
asked if it would be possible to come here to show
his work, Postel recalled.
Lorenzo had never been
out of the country, but his
brother, Pedro, had been to
the U.S. before.
That chance online
encounter led to a friendship that ultimately brought
Lorenzo and Pedro Cruz
Sunu to Dane County two
years ago for a visit and art
sale at Wisconsin Brewing
Company in Verona.
The brothers are coming back this week and
will show Lorenzos paintings at an event over three
afternoons in Robin and
Bob Postels barn, 3636
Casara Road, located a few
miles north of Cooksville
and about halfway between
Stoughton and Oregon.
The Postels and a friend
on the Wisconsin Brewing
Company board of directors
are sponsoring the event,
which will feature an afternoon open house Friday
through Sunday, including
a Mayan blessing ceremony
around 2 p.m. Saturday.
The paintings reflect
a way of life for the Family Cruz and others living
around Lake Atitlan, Robin Postel said.
In a 2013 telephone interview from his home in Guatemala, Lorenzo Cruz Sunu
explained he was attracted
to drawing at an early age,
and by the time he was 10

Things We Dont Know


There is very little that we know with certainty. We
often think we know why others do what they do,
but when we reflect honestly about how unsure we
often are of our own motives, it should be obvious
that we dont really know the motives of others. The
more that we know about how the universe works,
both on the largest and the smallest scales, from
subatomic particles to the formation of galaxies, the
more we realize how little we know. No one but God
was there at the creation of the universe. There is a
sense in which the world is intelligible: things can
be understood well enough to build functioning cars
and spaceships and medical devices which do indeed
work, but they dont work so perfectly as to give us
the illusion of certainty. There is plenty that we know,
or can know, but our collective knowledge is like a
drop in a veritable ocean of ignorance. We do well to
remain humble in the face of all that we do not know.
Christopher Simon, Metro News Service
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;
then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

Oregon takes runner-up
at Badger South meet
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

A crisp fall breeze and a slight


frost greeted athletes and spectators
to a beautiful Lake Farm Park in
Madison on Saturday morning.
Despite the brisk conditions to
start the day the Oregon girls cross
country team tore up the course as
sophomores Taylor Schmidt and
Bree Bastian both earned first-team
all-conference honors en route to a
second place team finish.
Schmidt covered the 5,000-meter
course at Lake Farm Park in a teambest 20 minutes, 19 seconds for fifth
place.
It feels great, Schmidt said of
earning first all-conference honors.

Honestly, the team did great today.


Enough though we finished second,
its incredible.
Bastian followed 12 seconds later
in 20:31, taking eighth place.
A mere 34.7 seconds separated
Oregons top five scorers, while
Stoughton sported a 1:15.8 gap.
It didnt matter, though, as the
Vikings held off the Panthers 43-48.
Our girls raced their hearts out,
Panthers head coach Doug Debroux
said. We really stayed focused on
us and how we were getting practice everyday. It was all about us
competing our best today.
Head-to-head ,Stoughton finished
in front of Oregon through four
runners. The Panthers cut into the
Vikings lead with the finish of their
fifth runner Madelynn St. Clair,
however, who finished five spots
ahead of Vikings junior Aly Weum.

Hansen posted a 20:38 for 10th

LeBrun and St. Clair who clocked
a 20:52.9 and 20:53.7 for 12th and
13th place, respectively.
Freshman Lauren Beauchaine,
senior Bree Paddock and freshman
Kaity Kliminski also competed on
varsity, but did not score.
The girls are working so well
together everyday in practice,
Debroux said. They inspire one

another and its really an inspiring


thing to watch. Connie, Maddie and
Bree those three seniors in that pack
of eight have been great leaders.
Oregon was without one of its
top runners once again in Emma
Hughes.
I kind of worked my way into
the top spot, Schmidt said. The
same thing kind of happened to
me in basketball too. Someone just
needed to step up and help out.
The Vikings final varsity scorer
was junior Aly Weum, who finished 18th overall in 21:26.
Saturdays conference meet was
dominated by underclassmen as
nine of the top 10 were either freshmen or sophomores.
Fort Atkinson sophomore Arianna Mansavage won the meet in
19:58, while Milton sophomore
Lauren Talabec finished runner-up
in 20:04.

Fellow freshmen Anna Wozniak

Wozniak posted a time of 20:21

the course in 20:25 for seventh
place. The top eight earned firstteam honors.
Stoughton junior Clea Roe was
the only upperclassmen to crack the
top 10, earning the first spot on the
second team, taking ninth place in
20:36.

Cutter earns second-team honors again Panthers chosen as No. 1


Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

For the fourth straight year, Oregon


cross country runner Chris Cutter was
able to earn Badger South All-Conference. And for the fourth straight year, he
wasnt quite able to crack the top eight
for first-team honors.
Cutter covered Saturdays
5,000-meter conference at Lake Farm
Park in Madison in a team-best 17 minutes, 13 seconds.
Still, the finish left the Oregon senior
three places and 11 seconds behind of
Monona Grove freshman James Giftos
for the final first-team spot.
I was hoping to make the first team
just because I had been on the second
team the last three years, Cutter said.
Its my senior season so I wanted to go
out with a bang.
Despite ending up on the second
team again, its still a privilege to be
on the second team. This year was kind
of a surprise because MG came out of
nowhere with their underclassmen. I

think it just shows how great the Badger


Conference is.
For his part, Panthers head coach
Erik Haakenson said, Chris works year
round to become a better athlete, but
the Badger South has become more and
more competitive as teams have become
stronger overall. Runners on the first and
second all-conference team have come
and gone, but Chris has remained one of
the best runners in the conference in the
past four years.
Six seconds separated Oregons next
three runners. Juniors Joshua Klahn and
Ben Lokuta reached the finish line seven
seconds apart in 17:54 and 18:00 for
24th and 27th place, respectively. Senior
Ben Janes then added a 28th-place finish
in 18:01.
Fellow senior Jonas Temte rounded
out the Panthers pack in 18:30 good
for 41st place.

With a win Friday night at


DeForest, the Oregon football
team likely would wind up
hosting a WIAA Division 2
playoff game.
Instead the Panthers (6-3)
fell 36-15 against the host
Norskies (6-3) and ended up
with the sixth seed. Oregon
takes to the road Friday at 7
p.m. in the Level 1 game at
third-seeded Milton.
Jadon Sackman gouged
the Panthers defense for 407
yards and four touchdowns on
32 carries, including runs of
1 and 9 yards to seal the Panthers fate in the fourth quarter.
We handled him pretty
well in the first half and we
had some injuries to our
defense which killed us a bit,
he is a good runner, Panthers
head coach Dan Kissling
said. They handled us pretty
well up front and their line
got up to our linebackers,
which hasnt happened all
season.We had some injuries
which forced us to play some
kids who didnt have a lot of
experience and they capitalized.
Oregon and DeForest
exchanged touchdowns in the

first half as Sackman raced


72 yards for the games first
score. Shortly after, Trent
Ricker found Alex Duff for
another long strike, knotting the score at 7-all with an
83-yard touchdown pass.
The Panthers rushed for
167 yards, including 102
from Matt Yates on 17 carries). Sophomore Brett Wannabo came in and rushed for
37 yards after Lucas Matthews got injured early in the
first quarter.
DeForest went on to take
control of the game with 17
unanswered points. The Norskies added a 21-yard field
goal for a 10-7 lead at halftime and then added a pair of
third quarter rushing touchdowns.
Ricker found Duff on a
14-yard yard strike late in the
third to pull Oregon with a
touchdown and 2-point conversion, 23-15.
It was as close as the Panthers would get as the Norskies added a pair of fourth
quarter Sackman touchdowns.
We moved the ball pretty
good both passing and running, but we struggled rushing in the red zone, with
silly mistakes andpenalties,
Kissling said. We have been

pretty good all season, we just


lost our focus which isunusualfor us.
With the loss, the Panthers
earned the sixth seed in the
playoffs and will head to Milton at 7 p.m. Friday for their
Division 2 Level 1 game.
The Red Hawks (7-2)
defeated Oregon two weeks
ago 16-7 on an 85-yard touchdown run with just under 10
minutes left in the game.
Milton is coming off a
35-32 loss against Monona
Grove, which caused the
teams to share the conference
title for the second straight
year.
We need to get some guys
healthy and we need to get
some of our younger kids
ready to step up, Kissling
said.It will be a challenge if
a couple kids cant play this
Friday because of injuries.
Milton has an excellent
defense and we will need to
be ready for their speed up
front.
Waunakee was awarded
the No. 1 seed and will host
eighth-seeded Tomah. Second-seeded Badger hosts seventh-seeded Watertown.
Fourth-seeded Holmen
welcomes fifth-seeded
DeForest.

score.
Oregon finished the day
taking fifth place out of seven,
with 131 points.
Talent comes and goes
over the years, I just focus
on improve the times of each
individual runner on the
team, Haakenson said. On
Saturday 17 of the 28 boys
on the team had the best race
of their lives, and a few more
missing it by just seconds.
This tells me that they
were ready to race and that
many runners on the team performed their absolute best.
Monroe took home the trophy with 47 points behind the
2-3 finish of junior Nick Baumann and sophomore Dylan
Scace. Madison Edgewood
finished 14 points back behind
the first-place finish of senior
Nathaniel Langlie (16:26).
With Monroe, and Edgewood both being ranked by
the WCCCA coaches poll,
and not beating Stoughton
this year in other races, we
knew the conference meet

was going to be challenging,


Haakenson said. Each year
we set out goals at a conference title. Some years we
come closer than others.
The Panthers travel to Ripp
Park in Waunakee for the
WIAA Division 1 sectional
meet at 11:45 a.m. Saturday.
The meet features topranked Madison West, as
well as Middleton, Madison

Memorial and Baraboo all


ranked in the top 20 of the
Division 1 coaches poll.
Each sectional around the
state is competitive, ours is no
different, Haakenson said.
We will set our sights on
performing our absolute best
at sectionals and see if we can
get a team member to state.
Anything can happen.

Tim Andrews Horticulturist LLC

Madelyn, 2, left, and Abby Remington, 5, brave the cold with


Megan Bloyer, 11, to get their candy during trick-or-treating last
Halloween.

The Oregon Police


Department suggests the
following tips to be safe
and seen on Halloween:
Go trick-or-treating
with a grown-up
Visit only people you
know and houses that are
well-lit
Make sure your costume lets you see and hear
perfectly to watch and listen for cars

Make sure your costume fits, because it is easy


to trip on costumes that are
too big
Wear brightly colored
clothing or put glow-in-thedark patches or strips on
your costume so drivers can
see you
Cross the street at intersections with an adult
Carry a flashlight
Drive slowly
Never eat the candy
received until a parent or
grown-up has inspected it
Report any suspicious
candy, vehicles or persons
to the police department at
835-3111.
