A new look is slowly but surely emerging at Oregon High School and its adjoining parking lot, which have been the scene
of a major construction project for the past several weeks. The school is getting more attention than any other district
building, with construction projects having started in spring of 2015 and slated to continue through the fall of 2017.

Building for the future


Unified Newspaper Group

For Oregon School District officials, Nov. 4, 2014, is a date that


wont be forgotten anytime soon.
Less than three years after district
voters soundly rejected a $33 million
referendum to upgrade the districts
athletic fields, they easily approved
$54.6 million in capital projects referendums to improve the schools.
District superintendent Brian Busler
said a day doesnt go by when
he doesnt think about that date,
the success of the referendums and
what it means for our students and
our community.
We have achieved the important goal of staff, student and community involvement to ensure the
final designs reflect the educational

priorities of the district and make


the best use of every single dollar
invested by residents in our schools,
he said in an email to the Observer.
This investment by the residents of
the Oregon School District will be
utilized for generations of students.
After eight years of discussion
and community engagement on capital project needs, including a district-wide survey and several focus
groups, three top construction priorities were identified, Busler said:
Safety and security improvements,
learning environments and capital maintenance/energy efficiency.
Nearly 100 district staff, parents, and
students served on the design teams
to finalize the building layouts within the construction budgets, which
Busler said he was pleased to report
are on time and within budget.

Together we have balanced the


needs of the community while providing our students, future students
and staff members with safe buildings that will facilitate modern learning, he said.
The plan covered improvements
to all of the districts schools except
the newest building, Rome Corners
Intermediate School, built in 2001.
Construction projects at Oregon
High School and Oregon Middle
School started the first phase last
spring, with projects also beginning
at Netherwood Knoll, Prairie View
and Brooklyn elementary schools
this past school year. The final stage
of work at OHS scheduled for completion in August 2017.

After 31 years as a Dane


County Sheriff s Department deputy, Town of Dunn
resident Joseph Carril experienced enough unusual
cases to fill several seasons
of various police TV shows.
But Carril, who retired
in late April, remains tight
lipped about bizarre incidents except for one traffic stop.
He pulled over a car driven by a woman in her early
80s for speeding. The elderly driver looked at Carril
and said directly: I always

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat panel build completed for Oregon family


It was a cloudy, windy day in
June, but that didnt stop nearly
80 people from trading in their
desk jobs for hard hats and hammers to build a home for Elvira Rodriguez and her family.
National Guardian Life Insurance
Company (NGL) partnered with
Alliant Energy to build a Habitat
for Humanity of Dane County,
Inc. home that will eventually be
located on Janesville Street in the
Village of Oregon.
Rodriguez is a single mother
who is excited to have a home
where her three children can run
and have a pet. Before she can
move into her home, she will
learn about house maintenance,
finance and put in 325 sweat equity hours, including volunteering
at the Habitat store and participating in builds.
Alliant Energy hosted the panel
build and took the first shift of the
day. NGL arrived for the second
shift to finish building the panels
and assemble the walls. Rodriguez took pictures of her future
home and the messages that people wrote for her family.
The panel build held special
meaning for one volunteer, NGL
customer service specialist Charity MacLeod, who purchased a
Habitat home in 2005.
Helping with the panel build
brought back a lot of good memories. It was a liberating time to
be able to provide a better home

April authorized a $75,000

Sheriff speaks about


Carrils long career
Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney spoke glowingly about Dunns Joe Carril at a ceremony on May
19. These are excerpts from Mahoneys speech:
While the law enforcement profession can leave
some bitter and disgruntled, Deputy Carril came to
work everyday with a positive attitude.
There are countless letters in his personal file from
citizens expressing their appreciation for Deputy Carrils help. The overwhelming theme when you talk
about Joe is his integrity. He always wants to do what
is right.
... Deputy Carril was never one to sit idly by in his
squad car waiting to be assigned to a call. He readily would track down suspects who escaped arrest on
other shifts, and never hesitated to help other deputies
whenever he could. He served as part of the Crime
Scene Unit, and was called upon to assist with investigations.
Without even realizing it, Joe was a teacher, mentor and leader; without a doubt, someone to measure
other another deputys performance by.

Barger.
police chief James Barger
said.
Bargers interest in the
Belleville program initially emerged after he noticed
nearby communities running programs like the
Citizens Academy, where
people could see for themselves how police operated
and could improve their own
ability to be more safe.
It helps them be a little
bit more observant, better
citizens in regard to reporting crime and probably a
little bit more wary of their
surrounding, he said.

Barger plans to continue


the joint Belleville-Brooklyn program next year. Hultine said the program will
likely run on either Wednesday nights or Saturday afternoons, depending on the
volunteers schedules. She
said that she wants to create a similar, but softer version of the program for high
school students.

It gave me a better understanding of what they do


when theyre out on patrol,
what they have to look for
and safety aspects, Kuhlman said. It just gave me
a new appreciation of what
they have to go through
every day to stay safe and to
keep everyone else safe.
Though she didnt volunteer to get Tased, she found
her niche elsewhere.
For me, the best weeks
were the ones with the driving and firearms courses,

The program ran its
first session in 2012, after
now-retired Belleville police
chief Roger Hillebrand
decided to create a way
for citizens to expand their
understanding of the local

said.
He went and asked several people in the community, trying to get people from
different areas, different
walks of life, she said.
A variety of people
answered the call, including
a bartender, a teacher and a
reporter.
And then its word of

said. They go and talk to

Sometimes, the real story goes beyond the headlines or the TV news sound
bytes. When it comes to the
often-controversial work
police officers do, thats no
exception.
To break down what they
view as false depictions of
police officers, the Belleville
and Brooklyn police departments just finished a nineweek-long program that
gave people a glimpse into
the law enforcement profession. The sessions were
attended by two Brooklyn
and four Belleville residents.
During the Belleville/
Brooklyn Police Citizens
Academy program, six volunteers visited a 911 call
center, drove emergency
vehicles, fired weapons,
experienced a field-sobriety test, met a drug dog and
even had the chance to get
Tased. The volunteers also
sat down for a Q&A session with Belleville police
officers, where they had
the chance to ask what its
like to be a cop, especially
amid sometimes heated tension between citizens and
law enforcement across the
country, and controversial
depictions of cops by the
media.
Molly Hultine, the Belleville police officer who
has run the program for
the last several years, said
the program is important
because most people dont
know what we do.
Were just trying to get
out there saying, Hey, were
here to work for you guys,
we want to help you guys,
we want to teach you what
it is that we do so that you
have some understanding of
whats going on, she said.
Linda Kuhlman, Brooklyns deputy clerk-treasurer,
decided to attend the program because she thought
it would be interesting to try
it. She said it seemed to live
up to expectations.

Letters to the editor

Assisted living facility too big for Oregon


I am one of the outraged Oregon
citizens who objects to having a
3-story, 87,000 square-foot monstrosity built in my backyard.
I wonder which members of the
Oregon Planning Commission or
Village Board would choose to
have this huge commercial building
butting up against their property.
A building of this size does not
belong in the middle of a residential neighborhood, plunked tightly
between 22 single-family homes.
In addition to the towering physical
invasion of privacy, each of the 106
apartment units will have its own
window air conditioner humming
through the air. What new construction installs window air conditioners? Cheap construction, maybe?
I just do not see anything good
about this project. The proposed
building is way too big for the
neighborhood. It would be noisy,
with air conditioners and garbage
and delivery trucks. Mature trees
would be cut down and over half of
the ground area would be covered
with impermeable surfaces, creating flooding issues from runoff.
There would be little area to push
snow in a heavy winter.
The developer has estimated

that residents would average 85


years of age and reside at the facility for two years before needing
more advanced care. However,
that would require these elderly
people to move to a different city,
as Oregon does not have enough
nursing home or memory care for
that many people. The developer
has said that the elderly residents
could walk to the downtown businesses, but there is too much traffic
on Main Street to make that a safe
possibility.
Oregon seems like an unnatural
choice for such an enterprise. It has
no hospital to meet the frequent
needs of elderly residents. Oregon
has no public transportation for
potential employees to get to work.
I dont imagine that this for-profit
facility would provide quality care
or quality jobs. And it will certainly
ruin my neighborhood.
I encourage any Oregon citizens
who feel the way I do to attend the
Planning Commission Meeting at
6:30p.m. Thursday, July 14 at Village Hall.

Dog training can be


as simple as A-B-C

nimal training can serve


useful purposes, be great
fun and strengthen the
human-animal bond. It can also
frustrate folks, especially if
they have not formally studied
learning theory.
Training is as simple as
A-B- C. The A stands for
antecedent, and that is what
occurs before a
behavior. B
stands for the
behavior that
you observe,
and C is the
consequence
of that behavior.
It is the conAntolec
sequence of
behavior that
drives the learning process, but
many people tend to think the
antecedent is what drives behavior. And this is where folks run
into trouble when training dogs.
In other words, because dogs
figure things out by experimenting with cause and effect, the
consequence of their behavior
choice determines whether they
repeat that choice or abandon it.
If I ask my dog Buddha to sit
using a word, that verbal cue is
the antecedent. It gives Buddha
a prompt. I prefer to think of it
as an invitation: I invite him to
enjoy a reward if he offers me
the correct behavior response.
But lets say that Buddha lies
down instead. He was not sure
what my word meant because
English is not the native language of dogs, and he offered
a behavior that had been previously rewarded. He did not
know what I wanted, but he
took a guess.
Sorry buddy, that was an
incorrect choice.
Some folks would respond
with punishment, but that is not
instructional and would only
increase Buddhas stress. Stress
triggers the sympathetic nervous
system to release hormones like
adrenaline and cortisol, which
block the learning process. I do
not want Buddhas brain to float
around in a soup of stress hormones; I just want him to sit.
Seeing confusion on his furry black face, I start over and
give him a new antecedent: a

hand signal for sit. Buddha


responds by promptly placing
his wiggly Labrador butt on
the floor with a look of happy
anticipation on his face. Dogs
can learn hand signals far more
easily, and then they have a
behavior response to associate
with the word cue, which we
may add later.
In consequence of sitting
down, I reward Buddha with
sing-song praises of his high
intellect and tell him that he is
the joy of my life. His tail wags.
I then cue him to lie down and
coax him into a belly rub, which
he loves.
Buddhas brain is now happily dog paddling in dopamine
and oxytocin, the bonding
hormones. The pleasure center
of his brain is firing gleeful
electrons hither and yon like a
canine Fourth of July display.
Wow! All kinds of great stuff
happen to me when I put my
butt on the floor. Im gonna do
that again next time! Buddha
chuckles to himself.
Whatever behavior is rewarded becomes stronger in a process called positive reinforcement. Behaviors that are not
rewarded become weaker and
eventually stop.
With repetition, Buddha
learns that sitting on cue works
for him and other behavior
choices do not. He also learns
the antecedent is an opportunity
to make a choice that earns a
reward and is eager to continue
working with me.
What people need to remember is that they use words all
the time. It makes sense to us
to give commands, and we
expect a dog to comprehend like
an English major and perform
a perfectly-positioned sitting
maneuver in turn.
He did it before, so he must
know what I am saying, is
something I often hear. Folks
also tend to repeat word cues
relentlessly until they finally see
the response they seek.
Bowser, sit. Sit. Sit, sit, sit!
Bowser looks up at his person
hearing Bowser, blah. Blah.
Blah, blah, blah! He thinks to
himself, I dunno what my person wants from me, so I guess I
will just sit here and wait until I

see a cue that I can understand.


Consider a human behavior
we call driving a car. You are
cruising along in the Big City
and approach a busy intersection with traffic control signals. You see a green light and
keep going forward. The lights
change to yellow and then red.
Your car stops.
The color of the signal did
not cease the forward motion
of your vehicle; you chose to
put your foot on the brake.
You could have made another
choice.
As a consequence of stopping,
you avoided collision with traffic on the intersecting street,
and that is a pretty positive reinforcement of your behavior.
A moment later, the light you
face turns green, but your car
does not suddenly lurch ahead.
As a defensive driver you look
to your left and right before putting your foot on the gas pedal
and see a giant red dump truck
blasting through the red signals
on the cross-street at 30 mph
with a police car following. The
truck driver saw a red light and
chose to keep going forward.
Your choice to hesitate and
look for hazards was richly
rewarded, and you will likely
repeat the behavior choices you
made at the intersection because
of the consequences of those
choices.
People and dogs develop
behaviors according to the same
learning theory. When we apply
the principles of science based
learning theory to teaching our
dogs, it becomes simple and
fun. Work with your dog and
have fun with it. The results will
be mutually positive and reinforcing.

band also won a recording
session at Madisons Blast
House Studios.
Distant Cuzins was one
of 12 bands picked from 30
Wisconsin acts to perform a
20-minute set at Summerfest on June 30. They had
previously sent in their video-taped live performance
of three originals and one
cover to the judges, and
had been practicing hard
up until the concert, Lokuta
said.
It felt amazing, and it
always does, because we

worked and worked, and we


practiced those songs, and
we played the set over and
over again, he said.
Playing at Summerfest
wasnt all about winning,
Lokuta said.
When you get on stage
at Summerfest, the amount
of energy that comes back
at the band while were
playing is just incredible,
Lokuta said. Thats what
we feed off of.
Lokuta said Distant Cuzins has played about 70
shows now, and they plan
on continuing to make
music. But instead of writing new material, the band
plans on prioritizing getting our name out there and
playing shows, he said.
Distant Cuzins also has a
single, Need Someone (To
Break My Heart), that can
be purchased on iTunes and
Amazon.

Allyson Norland struck a pose during the OHS track season. She died in a February 2015 car
crash, but her memory continues in a scholarship run and walk Saturday, July 9.

Norland: Community helps others after tragedy


Continued from page 1
Norland was an OHS
track and cross country runner. She also performed in
choir and participated in tug
of war. The latter prompted
a tug of war element to the
FANS event.
Aaron and Krysta Norland, Allysons parents,
supported FANS, and they
will participate in the second annual event, Homme
said.
They think its a great
way to keep her memory
alive, Homme said.
Nearly 300 people joined
the FANS Run/Walk last
year. Another 60 participated in the tug of war event.
Saturdays FANS Run/

Get

Walk has almost 200 people


signed up in advance and
dozens are expected to register on the day of the race.
This years event will be
timed and awards will be
given to top three participants in each age division.
In addition, all participants
will be entered into a drawing from numerous prizes, including Charlies On
Main gift certificates and a
Bucky Badger wall decor
piece.
The community was
unbelievable last year,
Homme said, and it is
unbelievable this year.
Homme said Norlands
parents continue to grieve.
I t s b e e n r e a l l y
rough, she said. But the

community support has


helped.
Norlands family also suffered when Bailey Connery,
also a member of OHS
Class of 2016, died in a car
crash April 14. The families
have been in contact to give
each other support.
Homme wants Saturdays
event to be a celebration.
A DJ will be there and the
post-race drawings should
boost interest, she said.
The 5K walk has been
r e d u c e d t o a t wo - m i l e
one, and Homme expects
an upbeat atmosphere to
remember her niece.
Its a super fun run, she
said.

The art cart is rolling


through Dane County again,
with a stop in Oregon in July.
With expert instruction
through the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, the
Art Cart EXTRA! program
offers children ages 3 and
older a variety of opportunities for creative expressions
outdoors.
Art Cart EXTRA! will be
held from 10a.m. to noon
Saturday, July 16, at the Triangle Park shelter at the corner of Janesville and Spring
streets.
Participants can work on
projects such as relief printmaking, art journals and
found-object sculptures.
Families are invited to
drop in, but organized summer camps and other childcare programs must pre-register for weekday sessions by
calling 204-3021. All children should be accompanied
by a supervising adult.

Bound for Adventure


Humans are made for adventure. We all love a good
adventure story, and if you are a student of history, you
know that human beings have been seeking adventure from
the dawn of history, and probably before, if the prehistoric
cave paintings are any indic tion. What prompts one person
to set off on foot over the range of mountains and another
to fashion a boat or raft and set off across the ocean must
be some sort of innate wanderlust. Whatever it is, we all
have a hankering for adventure. This can be satisfied in big
or small ways. Sometimes we set off on a path through the
woods in our own backyard or decide to take our bicycle
somewhere weve never been. Other times we opt for the
adventure vacation, perhaps hiking in a remote wilderness
or exploring an unfamiliar city. Of course the notion of
adventure is relative. What one person considers wildly
adventurous another may consider childs play. In any
case, we should all indulge our spirit of adventuresafely,
of course. Its not for nothing that the Bible is filled with
great stories of adventure, from Noahs ark to Pauls shipwreck in the Mediterranean. God favors the bold.
Christopher Simon, Metro News Service
I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my
fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city,
in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger
from false believers.
2 Corinthians 11:26 NIV

south end by the end of
the 2016-17 school year.
Next summer the renovation phase will begin,
slated for completion by
Sept. 1, 2017.
OHS principal Jim
Pliner said the new spaces will create a state-ofthe-art high school, with
an emphasis on flexible
learning spaces and collaborative areas will allow
us to expand our belief
in the value of student
engaged and student driven learning.

Projected cost: $5 million


Completion date: Summer 2016
BKE has been the site of numerous
improvements in the past school year,
including a secure entrance, new, separate student and bus drop off areas (completed by April 1) and a new cafeteria, all
of which left BKE parents impressed,
said district superintendent Brian Busler.

Other ongoing projects include new principal/student services offices, new kindergarten classrooms, new music classrooms, two new special education classrooms and a remodeled library as part of
serious interior work, said Busler.
The project also includes solar panels

Orioles future showcased


after starter Riffle leaves
for Stoughton
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor

Ben Riffle was the starter for the


Oregon Home Talent team since it
reformed three years ago, but Riffle decided to leave the Orioles to
return to the Stoughton Merchants
for the rest of the season. Riffle
pitched for the Merchants for six
seasons before joining Oregon.
With Eric Engler out for the season and several veterans unavailable on the Fourth of July, Oregon
was given a chance to showcase
what the future might hold.
Adam Heath, who graduated from Oregon High School in
June, was asked to start in his first
appearance in the Home Talent
League against Shullsburg/Benton
and there were several other players

that graduated from OHS in the past
three years in the lineup as well.
Although the Orioles lost 8-5,
there were signs of a potential turnaround in the future.
It was a moral victory maybe for
us. We are building our team. We
got the young guys and had to try
something new after Ben left, Will

Third baseman Pat Sommers scored on an error in
the ninth, and the Orioles
had the tying run on first

to end the inning.
Center fielder Sam
Schretenthaler (2-for-5)
knocked in courtesy runner Ben Prew, who ran for
Hoodjer after a walk, on
an RBI double in the third.
Abe Maurice (1-for-3)
added two walks, a double

Prew finished the game
on the mound. He allowed
two runs on four hits in
two innings.
We are close. We are
getting runs and hitting
the ball finally. There are

all these young guys, and I


think it takes a lot of pressure off having younger
guys here, Reinicke said.
It is nice to have the veterans here too, but we are
just chipping away and
trying to have something
happen.
It is not really about
winning anymore. It is
more about getting these
guys playing time and
getting comfortable in the
league.

Youth center grows


garden with grant
The Oregon Youth Center, Inc. is growing its garden space after it received
a $1,400 grant from The
Capital Times Kids Fund.
Director Diane Newlin
said the money will go
toward the purchase of a
rain barrel, two more raised
garden beds, two cherry
trees and garden supplies.
For the last year, the
Rotary Club and Al Miller and Uriah Carpenter
have generously loaned
us both their expertise and

equipment for our gardening needs, Newlin said


in a news release. We are
so happy to have our own
equipment moving forward.
Newlin also thanked Sharon Eveland, who spent
countless hours writing this
grant for the OYC.
The center has already
purchased the supplies
and used the new spigot to
water its existing gardens.
So far the kids are watering and weeding the garden

The annual Brooklyn


Fire/EMS pancake breakfast was held June 26, and
it was also a celebration of
20 years of EMS service to
the Brooklyn area. The day
included the meal, an open
house, silent auction, scavenger hunt, fire truck rides,
visit from a K-9 dog and
tour of Med Flight.

daily.
Once the plants start
fruiting we will be weeding, watering and harvesting daily, Newlin said.
Since many of the OYC
kids live in town, the nonprofits board of directors
thought it would be a good
idea to introduce gardening
at the OYC last spring as
both a learning opportunity
and to provide healthy food
options.
