Stoughton Area School District

Referendum looms as board reviews finances

Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group

While things are improving in the Stoughton School District, an expiring referendum looms like a ticking time bomb over the districts recent progress and financial picture. That was the stark message delivered Monday night by

superintendent Dr. Tim Onsager, who said the district and community are approaching a crossroads without some financial help. When the 2010 referendum expires at the end of June, we will face a $3.3 million shortfall in the next fiscal year alone without a replacement referendum, he said. Weve been resourceful, reduced

expenses by millions of dollars over the years and done more with less. Yet we cannot continue the progress of the last few years and cut $3.3 million at the same time. We cant do both. Onsager said if district officials have to cut their way out of the shortfall, the result will be lost staff and programs, and lost opportunity for our kids.

So this is the time to have a conversation about wheat kind of school district and what kind of community we want to have; because we are linked, he said. Were grateful for the support the community has already given us, and have been proud to pay it back. Now we have to decide what

SHS senior followed asteroids in summer

While many ambitious high schoolers graduate with hopes and dreams of saving the planet, Stoughton High School senior Amara McCune is gaining the skills to someday do just that. 1999KX4 is not a household name well, maybe it is in the McCune household and it wont be anywhere McCune else around these parts for millions of years, when the asteroid could possibly crash into the Earth. But McCune can tell you all about it, because this summer she wrote the software that precisely measured its position, calculated its orbit around the sun and operated a telescope to take images of 1999-KX4. It was part of a recent six-week program at the campus of Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Calif., run by such prestigious academic institutions as the California Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The program, started in 1959, is attended by only 35 high school students a year. They must pass a

When Don Dillman and the folks at Stoughtons Stark Automotive heard the terrible news about the death of Michael Iverson in a car crash earlier this month, they didnt know what to do. They just knew they wanted to help out somehow. The tragedy was not distant to them, either, as Iversons father, Matt (who was seriously injured in the crash) used to work there and still had many friends on staff. Their first thought was simple, but fitting the family was going to need a new vehicle to replace the damaged one, and they were going to do all they could to make it happen. And perhaps as surprising as it was heartwarming

Bright hike
The fire was warm on a cold October Saturday night at the candle light hike at Lake Kegonsa State Park. The annual event featured lighted plastic jack-o-lanterns to light up the hiking experience.

A local family is doing well after a fire left them homeless earlier this month. A kitchen fire on the 200 block of Jefferson Street on Saturday, Oct. 12, displaced a group of residents living in the duplex building. One of the residents, Steven Swenson, said that the fire started from a small grease fire. It started with the pan being on fire, and the fan above the stove melting into it, Swenson said. I did everything in my power to save the house. The house is now uninhabitable, according to Swenson; the smoke damage from the fire ruined everything in the house and some of the items in the other side of the duplex, such as his niece and nephews

Clowns, blood and gore, or a classic haunted house? If you're not sure which one you'd choose, you're in luck because the revamped Screamin Acres haunted attraction has all of them. In its third year, the haunted house at Eugster's Farm Market between Oregon and Stoughton features three different types of scares for a $15 admission. Jacob Eugster, a Stoughton High School junior, leads the project with help from parents Carol and Joe. The haunted attraction is spread over 6,000 square feet, lasts around 35 minutes and is broken up into three main parts: The Slaughter House, The Manor and The Psycho Circus in 3D, each with its own spooky theme. For the Psycho 3D circus, visitors wear 3D glasses and walk though a black-light maze, while the Slaughter House is the most gory of the three. Or, as Jacob put it, "It's the most aggressive attraction." Jacob built and designed

a lot of the sets, along with his dad and Nathan McGree, a designer and builder. A lot of the work to update the attraction is done in the winter, though Jacob said its becoming a year-round project. He takes pride in the crews attention to detail, saying thats one of the ways Screamin' Acres competes favorably with other area haunted houses. For example, he designed one of the rooms in The Manor with wooden tobacco laths lining the walls. He said it took him about a month to build the room, but it was worth it for the eerie look. And it incorporates most of the five senses. Eugster

uses smell and temperature with some rooms hot like the incinerator room as part of the experience. Good props and actors are an important part of the show. One of Screamin Acres props, for example a dummy that he converted into a bloody, decapitated corpse was originally used on one of the "Crime Scene Investigation" shows that airs on CBS. Another is a set of loose fake teeth in the dentist's room that was once used by people, Eugster said. The scare actors are paid, and many of them come from area theater groups. In total, it has around 45-50 staff members. On a busy night, Eugster said, lines can get as long as an hour-and-a-half wait, but not only does he think it's worth it, hes added a new waiting area with a light show. Screamin Acres is open from 7-11 p.m. for three more dates in 2013: Oct. 25-26 and Oct. 31 at 3865 State Hwy. 138 in Stoughton.

Committee to discuss City Hall staffing, personnel budget

The Common Council will meet as a committee Thursday to discuss the proposed 2014 personnel budget and a study that recommended restructuring City Hall staffing. Also on the agenda is a review of this years health insurance costs. Earlier this year the council approved Mayor Donna Olsons request to have the consulting firm Baker Tilly look into the organizational structure at City Hall and recommend improvements to it. The study concluded that to improve operations and create a better working environment, the city should have a human resources director to handle personnel issues and probably also an information technology director. The council commissioned the study in hopes of ending a pattern of city clerk/personnel directors resigning after just months on the job. The final report presented three models the city could consider, with options ranging from the lowest fiscal impact to a mid-level cost to the most expensive. The most expensive model called for not only creating positions for an IT director and HR director but also adding a city administrator to the organizational structure. That idea has been discussed a few times in past years and was rejected by the council each time. The least expensive model envisioned creating an HR position and adding some IT support. Baker Tilly estimated the cost for switching to that could be as much $125,000 or as low as $55,000, if the city were to take advantage of potential funding sources identified in the report. At Thursdays meeting, alders are expected to make recommendations for the Common Council to consider in its budget meetings next month.

Board to hold budget hearing

Citizens can offer feedback on the 2014 proposed budget for Dane County at a special meeting held by Dane County supervisors Thursday. The meeting takes place at 7 p.m., Oct. 24, in room 201 of the City-County Building in Madison. The public is invited to testify for or against items in the county executives proposed budget. Comments are also welcome on any amendments to that proposal. The proposed budget authorizes a total of $553.1 million for capital and operating expenditures. The budget is financed by $358.5 million in outside revenues and borrowing, $48.0 million of sales tax, and $147.9 million in county tax levy funds. The proposed budget increases the countys net property tax rate from $3.01 per $1,000 in assessed home value in 2013 to $3.10 for 2014. Some of the larger items are $8 million toward replacement or remodeling of county jail facilities, a $2 million SMART fund for sustainability projects projected to save $5 million in operating costs and an expansion of the current manure digester program. County Board committees will complete their consideration of amendments to the proposed budget over the next few weeks. The full board will take up the budget Nov. 18.

Online survey aims to gauge future development goals

Mark Ignatowski
Unified Newspaper Group

This week is the last chance for area residents to weigh in on how regional growth might shape the Stoughton area during the next few decades. The Capital Area Regional Planning Commission is using an online survey to gather public feedback on future growth areas in the Stoughton region. It is open through Oct. 29. The survey was also available to residents who attended three open house meetings earlier this month. The survey asks about what types of growth area

residents would like to see based on existing conditions and projections put together by staff and local leaders. In the next two-and-ahalf decades, planners estimate about 7,000 new residents will move to Stoughton, creating a demand for nearly 1,200 acres of developed land. The survey asks respondents to weigh in on what types of growth theyd like to see and where, as well as how those decisions will impact such things as natural areas, commercial development and transportation options. The survey is part of the

Its a good thing that cats have nine lives, because the one found in a car engine during a donation drop-off at St. Vinnys has likely used a few. On Sept. 30, an unidentified female donor was dropping off items when employee Mike German heard a meowing coming from the engine of the car. The cat was found curled up next to the heat shield in the engine. The owners claimed that she was not inadvertently donating a cat, because she did not own one. It was a missing cat, said Brooke Trick, another employee of St. Vinnys who was involved with the animal rescue. We had just hung up posters for it earlier in the day. Trick stated that returning the cat to the owner was a unique way for St. Vinnys to give back to the community. Gary and Penny Schumacher, owners of the cat, named Gander, were overjoyed to have him back and consider his return an answered prayer. Back in June of this year, the Schumachers found Gander at the Gander Mountain sporting goods store near DeForest after returning from a church camping trip. They did not end up buying the tent they needed

that day, but instead rescued the cat whose name is now a memory of how they brought him into their lives. We brought him home, and found out that he has a huge personality, Penny Schumacher said, adding that Gander will sometimes think hes a dog and will eat and sleep with them. The Schumachers found out in the months after adopting him into their home that Gander will climb up into the engine of cars when hes spooked, which is how they assume Gander found his way to Gander Mountain in the first place, and how he managed to get to St. Vinnys. Gander most likely got out when our granddaughter was here, seeing that kids go in and out of the house all the time, Schumacher said. He must have traveled around the neighborhood before getting spooked and climbing into a random car engine. And thats where he was found the next day during the donation. St. Vinnys employees initially refused the $100 reward, but finally accepted it as a donation to their food pantry. I really appreciate how they were paying attention, Schumacher said. Sometimes things like this end up being negative Im really glad this had the happy ending it did.

WIAAs golf format is missing the cut

It was even worse in Division 2, where Madison Edgewood was ranked with D1 schools all year won by 21 strokes and had 50 strokes on the third-place finisher. Edgewoods score would have been fifth in Division 1. While it is great that teams from around the state have a chance to make the field, theres something wrong when the sectional is more difficult to win than state itself. Sure, rankings are subjective, but it is no fluke that the Madison West sectional had the best teams in the state. These teams battled it out all season in different tournaments and posted low scores on difficult golf courses all year. While there can be a plus-or-minus based on who is voting, there should be no question whether these teams deserved their ranking. That sectional had some tough stories this year. No. 4 Stoughton, for instance, would have made state in four other sectionals based on its score, but it missed out by five strokes. Individual qualifiers are even more of a problem. Veronas Jessica Reinecke and Stoughtons Becky Klongland both made state out of the Madison West sectional, which was expected with their low scoring averages. But that left only one other spot open for a state berth in that sectional. Oregons Morgan McCorkle missed state, and based on her score, she would have made the cut in two different sectionals this year Hartford Union and La Crosse Central. McCorkle was tied for 29th at state when Oregon went as a team in 2011 but never had an opportunity to get back. There have been several ideas floating around to fix this, but its not as easy as simply breaking up ranked teams at the end of the year. The WIAA groups teams based on region to reduce travel, and the logistics of making a change are extremely difficult. Golf courses need to be reserved, which is why groupings are out before the

Courier Hub

season even starts. The WIAA could guess and split up teams, but that could backfire. And some years, that would mean sending teams to the Milwaukee or far north courses. But there are two other ideas I can get excited for reducing divisions and creating a wildcard qualifying system. Some believe that going back to one division, at least in girls golf, could help. There would be more qualifiers and there would be more regionals, reducing the chance of having several ranked teams in one tournament. But smaller schools would likely lose out. A school with 300 students has a more difficult time building a program than one with 1,500. Something must be done, however to avoid rewarding mediocrity. Talent rises, and hard work should pay off in the end. If a school, regardless of its size, puts in the effort and starts junior golf programs, it will be able to have quality teams vie for a state berth most years. As for individuals, wildcards appear to be the best option. If you reduce the number of automatic qualifiers and allow a wildcard selection based on season average for the rest of the field, then add sectional scores as a tiebreaker, there would be no question of who deserves what. The best golfers would go to state. Period. Maybe these ideas based on conversations with coaches and media in the state arent the answer, but spreading awareness of this problem is important. Left unchecked, this system will continue to leave deserving athletes off the state golf courses. I hope the WIAA realizes that something must be done to make sure those who deserve the rewards are the ones receiving it. Anthony Iozzo has been covering high school golf for four years with Unified Newspaper Group and two years before that at the Wisconsin State Journal.

Fire: Red Cross helps out

Continued from page 1 school clothes and toys, were destroyed. The duplex has since been gutted out like a pumpkin. (All I could think was) OMG, my house is gone! Swenson said. In a phone interview on Tuesday, Swenson said that he and his roommate Nate Ytzen have only two more nights in a hotel, and are not sure what do to from there. Im trying to find a house, but I cant come up with the cash, Swenson said. Ytzen had renters insurance before the fire, but Swenson did not. According to Fire Marshal Scott Wegner, the fire department was alerted of the fire at 1:30 in the morning and had the fire put out by 1:58 a.m. There were 23 volunteer firefighters in attendance to fight the blaze, with two engines and a rescue squad also at the scene. After the fire was put out, aid started to come to the family in their time of need. Katie Gaynor, disaster program specialist for the American Red Cross, said four Red Cross on-call disaster responders were on scene to evaluate the situation and the amount of need at around 2:15 a.m. From there the Red Cross provided the residents with two or three nights in a hotel and $100 to buy clothes to stay warm. We also provided comfort kits to each individual which includes basic hygienic products like a toothbrush, shampoo/ conditioner, washcloth, deodorant, etc., Gaynor said. Each individual (also) received a backpack to hold their belongings in. Wegner hopes that the community can learn something from the incident, so that it doesnt happen again. The fire is just a reminder of how important fire detectors are for catching fires, Wegner said.

Thought for the week

The Value of Fasting
There are lots of good reasons to limit our intake of food, ranging from health and financial reasons to emotional and spiritual benefits. An ancient idea that has recently gained traction is the practice of fasting. Instead of trying to limit ones calories each and every day, some scientists are proposing the idea of Alternate-Day Fasting or ADF. ADF regimens typically allow the person (or animal, lots of experiments have been done using rats and mice) to eat whatever he or she wants one day and then requires them to fast or consume a very limited number of calories the next day. More research needs to be done, but preliminary findings are promising, suggesting that ADF may reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Some are even suggesting we could live longer if we followed an ADF regimen. But, how might such a regimen benefit us emotionally and spiritually? Fasting and self-mortification can obviously be taken to extremes where they become unhealthy and even life-threatening. But, most of us suffer from the opposite problem: we are too selfindulgent. Delayed gratification and a sense of accomplishment is one of the byproducts of a successful fast. Eating can bring momentary pleasure but controlling ones appetites gives a deeper sense of lasting joy. Christopher Simon via Metro News Service When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Matthew 6: 16

Stoughtons silvery success

Vikings place four girls on all-conference team, settle for second place
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor
Junior Nikki Staffen and freshman Aly Weum helped the Stoughton girls cross country team place four runners in the top 15 and on the Badger South All-Conference team, but the Vikings were still unable to overcome Madison Edgewood at Saturdays conference meet. The Crusaders, led by the 1-2 finish of Amy Davis (14 minutes, 37.8 seconds) and Courtney Link (15:17.3) saw their top four run to first team all-conference honors, while the teams fifth runner secured the final second-team spot in 16th place as Edgewood ran away with the title with a team-best 32 points. Stoughton finished a distant second with 60, paced by the fourthand fifth-place finishes of Staffen and Weum. There is no shame in placing second to the top-ranked team in Division II, and I am proud of their performance, Vikings head coach Patrick Schneider said. All but one of the top seven finishers Saturday at the Yahara Hills Running Course were from either Edgewood or Stoughton. Milton junior Michelle Kraus (15:28) was the only girl breaking up the Edgewood/Stoughton pack at the finish line, taking third. Staffen, a returning first-team all-conference runner, was emotional after her fourth place finish in 15:29.4. I really wanted to get out and beat Amy and Courtney for our team, Staffen said. I feel like every Edgewood girl was one less point. I was bummed that I couldnt do that for our team. Still, the Vikings are among the favorites to win this Saturdays WIAA Division 1 sectional meet in Verona. We probably have a better shot to win our sectional than conference, Staffen said. Weve beat everybody weve raced in out sectional so far, and I think well do really well.

Senior Ashley Harnack battles Milton sophomore Brynn Lunaas (9490) Saturday at the Badger South Conference meet. Harnack finished 11th overall to secure second team all-conference honors in 16 minutes, 13.2 seconds. Stoughton (60) finished second overall as a team behind Madison Edgewood (32).

The top two teams at sectionals automatically advanced to the WIAA state meet Saturday, Nov. 2. It would mean the world for me to get to state as a team, Staffen said. It would be an experience that Ive always dreamed about, having my team on the line with me at state. Stoughton freshman Aly Weum had yet another impressive showing in her first season, taking fifth, cracking 16 minutes for the first time this season with a 15:51.6 a PR of more than 16 seconds. She is now the seventh-fastest 4K runner in school history. Knowing exactly what was on the line for their teams, Madison Edgewood juniors Ave Grosenheider and Abby Kothe were locked in a battle with Weum throughout much of the race. The last 800, those two Edgewood girls were cutting me off, every move I made, Weum said. A comment was made and I ended up getting spiked, but I knew I could get past them. They werent going to

Reese took 15th in a lifetime best 16:24.1. Fellow junior Kelsey Jenny was the Vikings final varsity scorer, placing 25th in 16:55.2. Freshman Clea Roe and seniors

Hannah Sonsalla and Serena Schimelpfenig also competed on varsity, but did not score. Stoughtons JV team dominated their race behind the 1-2-3 finishes of Augustyna Brestar, Samantha Nelson and Olivia Nortwen. Brestars time would have made her Stoughtons fifth varsity runner at conference. She will be running varsity for only the second time at sectionals. Roe will also run varsity at sectionals. I think we have a very solid team going into sectionals, Schneider said.We have a deep enough team that even if someone is a bit off, someone is there to take their step up. The girlshave worked very hard together to put themselvesin the position to make it to state. They are one of the hardest-working teams I have coached.

Benoy, Kahl excited just to make state

Stoughton freshmen Payton Kahl and Sarah Benoy entered Thursdays WIAA Division 1 state tennis tournament without any expectations. After all, other than Kahl neither had so much as watched a state tennis match. I was kind of nervous, but if went away after the first couple games, Kahl said. Kahl and Benoy, who earned a special qualifier, entered the tournament with a 16-7 record and faced Racine Case senior Jordan Schaefer and sophomore Kaylene Quirk (23-4) in the first round, where they fell 6-1, 6-0. We got better with every match, but there is still a lot more to learn, Benoy said. The Vikings girls tennis program hadnt had a state qualifier since 2002.

Playing at the state tournament is definitely something for our team to build on, Vikings head coach Ryan Reischel said. The goal is to keep the energy up. Top-seeded twins Shelby and Tilly Chorney (19-1) lived up to their billing becoming the first area doubles team since Annie Nelson and Emily Appen in 1994 to win a state title, with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory against senior Mardee Merar and freshman Katya Mikhailanko (322). West Bend West freshman No. 1 singles player Lexi Keberle, entered the tournament as the second seed with a 25-0 record but went on to add five more victories on her way to knocking off defending state champion Emily Konon of Homestead 6-4, 0-6, 6-3 in the championship match. The loss snapped a 108-match winning streak for Konon, who battled leg cramps for most of the third set.

XC: Sarthou runs to second team all-conference

Continued from page 9 at 11 a.m. this Saturday for the WIAA Division 1 Verona sectional meet. Weve beat every team in our sectional, Weum said. Ive heard good things about Lake Geneva Badger. A lot of coaches from other teams are saying were the team to beat, and we all believe so.

Final standings
Team Monona Grove Edgewood Milton Stoughton Oregon Monroe

Stoughton football had everything lined up its way to end a 15-year playoff drought, but the Vikings were unable to seal the deal Friday at Milton. In a winner-take-all game, it was the host Red Hawks and not the Vikings who improved to .500 within the Badger South with a 6-3 victory. We had a great group of seniors that was a joy to coach, Stoughton head coach Jason Thiry said. We are disappointed with the outcome, but not with the effort. Milton advanced to the WIAA Division 3 playoffs despite finishing the year 3-6 overall, while the loss dropped Stoughton to 4-5 (2-4 conference) on the year. Milton has been getting better each week during the year, Thiry said. They had a good plan to slow us down. The Vikings struck first, thanks to the 43-yard field

goal of senior P.J. Rosowski. Taylor Snells 11-yard touchdown early in the third quarter provided all the breathing room the Red Hawks would need. Stoughton senior quarterback Luke Logan finished 2-of-6 for 17 yards with an interception in the loss. Senior receiver Cole Spangler caught one pass from Logan for 11 of those yards. Viking junior Zach Hasselberger carried the ball 13 times for a team-high 40 yards. The goal for 2014 is simple Thiry said, We must get more physical and stronger before 2014.

Santiago Sarthou finished one spots shy of earning second-team all-conference honors a year ago. The senior wasnt about to let the same thing happen again this season however, finishing 15th overall Saturday at the Yahara Hills Running Course in 17:29 a PR of about 16 seconds. Being all-conference is something that I really wanted all season and while I was training over the summer, Sarthou said. While there was frost on the ground early Saturday morning, Sarthou said it was pretty good running weather. I just had to make sure my warm-up was nice and long (around 20 minutes), he said. Fellow senior Max Fergus finished three spots shy of earned second team honors, finishing 19th in 17:56.2 the first time hes gone under 18 minutes all season. Freshman Owen Roe, Tristan Jenny and Garrett Model formed a nice pack 17 seconds apart as the teams final three varsity scorers.

Senior Santiago Sarthou runs to a 15th-place finish at Saturdays Badger South Conference meet at the Yahara Hills Running Course. Sarthous finish secured him second-team all-conference honors in 17 minutes, 29 seconds.

Roe came away just behind Fergus in 18:01.1 in 21st place while Jenny crossed the finish line 23rd overall in 18:04.6. Model rounded out the scoring in 27th place with a time of 18:18. Sophomore Gabe Ross and juniors Giles France and Ryan Sperle all competed on varsity but did not score. Ross set a lifetime PR on the course. Defending champion Monroe was unable to retain its title despite the teams top three runners, finishing 1-2-3 as Madison Edgewood stole the title away 37-38. The Crusaders finished 5, 6, 7, 9 and 10 while Monroes fourth and fifth runners finished 14th and 18th overall.

A young Stoughton team appeared unfazed before the race, doing the hokey pokey before going on to finish fourth overall with 105. As a team I was happy with our finish, Vikings head coach Susan Zaemisch said.I would have liked third but the team is a very young one and this was great experience for us to run against two of the top teams in the entire state. The Vikings JV teams finished fourth overall behind the ninth-place finish of sophomore Ed Zeichert. Verona hosts sectionals Saturday where the gun will fire on the boys race at 11:45 a.m. I think Santiago has a chance of making individual

state if he races with a fearless strategy, Zaemisch said. There will be a lot of competition, but he has done everything we have asked. The top two teams from sectionals automatically advance to the WIAA state meet at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday, Nov. 2. The top five individuals not on either of the state qualifying teams also advance. Im not sure if I have a shot, but Ill make sure I give it my best, Sarthou said. Knowing I gave it my all, even if I wanted more, my body couldnt give more that will allow me to leave next week happy no matter what happens.

The Spartans, ranked fourth on the Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association Division 2 state poll, showed their depth dominating the rest of the meet. We knew going into this meet that we were up against the team that is going to win the Badger South, Vikings head coach Elise McLaury said. With no pressure to win, some of the girls tried brand new events, such as Annie Hudkins, Olivia Lenz and Bella Lenz in the 200 IM. Stoughton was also down two varsity swimmers again

in Averie Ness (illness) and Sophie Pitney (back), so even the teams relays were affected. We want them both healthy for our meet on Thursday, but Sophie is still questionable, McLaury said. The Vikings travel to Portage on Thursday for a 6 p.m. Badger Conference crossover dual against the Warriors. It would have been great to end the conference dual meet season with a win and have momentum going into Thursday, but I hope we can bounce right back and end the season on a great note, McLaury said.

District: Levy to be set at next meeting

Continued from page 1 path we want to take. Onsager said the district has made tremendous improvements during recent years. If you go back about eight years, some of our data was not so good, he said. The graduation rate was less than 85 percent, the special needs was less than 70 percent, and the composite ACT score was a little more than 21.7. In recent years, the districts data has been moving in the right direction, Onsager said. Our graduation rate for the last few years has never been less than 97 percent and is one of the best in the county, he said. The rate for our special needs

Our ACT score last year exceeded 23.4. We now have national education centers coming here to learn how we teach kids so that they can share our successes with other school districts. One thing that hasnt

changed, however, is the schools funding situation, Onsager said. We are still a lowspending school district, he said. We are at the bottom of Dane County. Yet we have never used our low funding as an excuse, we still expect to compete and we are holding our own. We have never limited our dreams for our kids because of limited funds, and I dont think we start now.

Donation: Local businesses, groups pitch in

Continued from page 1 at every turn, when Dillman asked businesses Stark works with to help out, people pulled out all the stops. Now, thanks to the efforts of many area businesses, the Iversons will have at least one less thing to take care of, as a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer is primed and ready for their use. Stark took the vehicle in on trade, and when the sales staff heard of the plight of the Iversons, they immediately made the connection. They said, Its in really clean shape, they took it in for the right dollar amount and it just needed an alternator, Dillman said. They said, Well get it here, and if its what we think, thats your vehicle to donate. From there, it just spiderwebbed. One call to Schmidts Towing, and the vehicle was on its way from Middleton, no charge. Bumper to Bumper Automotive provided some parts, D&M Service provided a full tank of gas, Morrison Auto Salvage donated a front bumper, and Stark technicians donated time and parts to complete the project. In the meantime, Aslesons Hardware loaned the family a vehicle to drive. We were just looking for some help here and there to keep costs down but provide Matt and his family with a vehicle that is more than safe to drive that he doesnt have to worry about, and

How to help
To donate to the family, visit Michael Iversons memorial page at facebook.com/ inmemoryof MichaelIverson. everybody stepped right up to the plate, Dillman said. It just kind of snowballed. Its been a great, fantastic thing to be a part of. Dillman said the episode just proves that Stoughton is old school when it comes to taking care of their own. Every time somebody heard about it, they were willing to jump in, he said. Its been enlightening.

Asteroid: SHS student became interested in science starting in middle school

Continued from page 1 rigorous testing process and receive recommendations to participate. Coursework includes college-level lectures, nights spent imaging and measuring light from distant asteroids and behindthe-scenes tours of NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech and the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics. for science and how the program sounded really cool because I would get to do original research, McCune said. Its a rigorous program and it sounded like something I like doing. Growing up with a basic curiosity with stuff but not necessarily a science person, McCune found herself gravitating toward science during middle school, specifically reading books on physics. I found it to be a really interesting subject, and I just went further and further, she said. Despite the beautiful Southern California scenery in Santa Barbara, the students quickly got down to work. Splitting various nighttime shifts didnt help anyones sleep schedule. We would stay up until 4 or 5 a.m., McCune said. It was a really intense schedule; we didnt get a lot of sleep. Mostly it was either staying up late doing homework or working on a

Once in a lifetime

McCune was looking for a science camp to attend over the summer, and simply Googled the subject and applied to a few that sounded interesting. The Summer Science Program was a bit different, though, and it sought plenty of background information and answers about why she wanted to be in the program, as well as a test requiring several essays. She dove in and gave it her best. I wrote about my passion

computer program that takes a lot of time to do. Writing computer code was relatively new for McCune and was another thing to learn on the go. We had a few lectures on the basics and then got into (the project), she said. When you think of doing

homework for high school, its more guiding you through something. Here, its something youve never done before go figure it out.

wrote orbital determination programs, which they had previously worked out by hand. You have to work out a few orbital elements, and Major math you have to go through every The groups started out single step, McCune said. doing basic stuff and later Learning the syntax of writing the program was kind of

difficult, but you go through and find a different method. Students took images of asteroids with a special program and checked the data with subsequent readings. What I wrote allows you to enter the date and time and it gives you the position of the asteroid at that time, she said Whats really cool is the programs not specific to the asteroid you can enter another and figure out where that object would be.

By the time 1999-KX4 gets near the planet, its going to be millions of years from now. Or maybe not. Probability plays a large role in trying to guess about a potential impact with Earth. When determining orbit, if you tweak one little thing, one position where the asteroids orbit is off.... she said. We ran a simulation and found in a few scenarios it would end up hitting the Earth. Aside from the scary scenarios studied by the students, McCune said the camp experience helped make it the best summer of her life. The really cool thing about the program is you get to meet people from all over the world and share an interest in science, and you become best friends, she said. One of my team partners was from Spain, and we had people from Pakistan, Egypt, Venezuela all over the world.

McCune plans to apply to Stanford, one of the top schools in the nation. Its a tall order gaining admission to a institution like that, but after her summer experience working among the countrys best and brightest, shes moving forward with confidence. We had a college round table at the program and (there was) a list where previous alumni had gone, and its very, very, very impressive, she said. A lot of MIT, Ivy League schools, which is kind of intimidating, but it helps me take that extra step to apply to (top) schools. When pressed on which type of physics shes most interested in, its a tough choice between astrophysics the focus of the summer program and theoretical and quantum physics. I want to go into some kind of physics maybe doing research, McCune said. I want to travel a lot and either work with a particle accelerator or just be contributing to science and continuing to do research.
