Last week was Bus Driver Appreciation Week. We appreciate our bus drivers each and every day, but they received special attention this past week. We had our drivers join us at our Assembly so we could give them a few tokens of our appreciation. The first picture is of our Transportation Director, Paul Ehlinger. We appreciate Mr. Ehlinger for all the trips he makes in the middle of the day for numerous reasons, for all the care he gives to our buses, and the ones that ride the 'little' bus with him. The other bus drivers have different areas of our district to cover. They are in the second picture. Back row from left to right: Troy Hoffmann, Big John Pakulski, and Lorna Weyenberg. Front row from left to right, Vicky Pirus, Lori Exferd and Linda McEwen. As is the custom at our school when we are recognizing someone, we give them a trip around the gym in a 'wheelie' chair (AKA an office chair). So you see Mr. Pakulski and some of his bus riders. We also had a bus driver that just retired in January. Mr. Curt Kroll, we hope you are loving sunny Florida. We miss you. We truly do appreciate our bus drivers!

Students at Wabeno Jr. High recently participated in two levels of Forensics competition. Forensics is a public speaking activity in which students choose from a variety of categories to demonstrate their skills. Public speaking has long been considered a dreaded task and one that many people avoid. Forensics allows kids the opportunity to overcome fear, hone their skills, and prepare for future speaking activities. Events range from play acting and poetry to radio announcing and demonstration. It is a challenging activity that builds teamwork, and a lot of credit goes out to those who try it. Students at Wabeno participated in the Level 1 contest held in Crandon on Feb. 1. A solid performance by the students earned them the opportunity to perform at the Level 2 contest held in Tomahawk on Feb. 10. All of the students performed well and earned blue ribbons for their efforts. Congratulations to the team on a job well done.

March is here! That means one step closer to Spring!! What a Wisconsin Winter it has been!! I wont complain because this IS Wisconsin, and it IS Winter, and there is nothing I can do to change it. Complaining about i t would just make it feel colder and longer than it is. With Our School: Our Rebel Girls and Boys Basketball and Rebel Wrestling teams had pretty good seasons this year. Our Boys Varsity was coached by Bill Taylor, Junior Varsity was coached by Mike Chrisman and Pete Liptack. Girls Varsity was coached by Andrew Harrison and Junior Varsity was coached by Scott Vanlanen. Rebels Wrestling was coached by John Twardowski. Coaching is often a thankless job so I would like to say THANK YOU to all of the coaches for all their hard work, countless hours and loads of patience. I cant say it enough, we need to keep our kids involved in extra curricular school activities like sports or forensics or dr ama- anything. Keeping them active helps keep them out of trouble and actually helps keep their grades up. Phones, video games and jobs can wait- this is the only time they get to participate in school activities. Speaking of grades- Congratulations to all our Wabeno students making the honor roll this past quarter. With Our Chamber of Commerce: We have chosen a new Board of Directors and will be voting on officers at our March meeting. If you have questions you can call Dawn at the bank 715-473-2311. Support our local businesses. PRINCESS CLOSET NOW OPEN AT FLOWERS GALORE!! Flowers Galore is once again offering a place for girls to bring in their prom dresses to sell. There is no charge to the girls for selling their dresses. This is Flowers Galores way of Paying It Forward. We give them a place to try and make a few dollars on a gently us ed gown as well as helping girls who dont want to spend hundreds of dollars at a retail store. Words of Wisdom : Be Positive, Be Patient, Be Persistent. You've done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.

At the beginning of a new year, the media spends much time reviewing major events of the previous one. Most of these stories are on a national/international level, such as the death of significant individuals like Nelson Mandela. But 2013 saw the loss of two leaders at the local level, men who are not going to garner much media attention but are no less important to us. I belong to a writers group, Up North Authors Circle (UNAC), facilitated by Kathleen Marsh of Townsend. We meet at the public library in Lakewood, which is my hometown. Both Kathleen and I have written local history books about our communities. This past year saw the passing of one relatively young, dynamic community leader from each of these small towns: Richard Pintsch of Townsend and Terry Rank of Lakewood. Neither was an elected political leader. Each served his community in the retail business. But Rich and Terry were giants in the vital area of community service, supporting our fire departments, rescue squads, community events, veterans groups, and yes, even UNAC. Richard Pintsch was an important resource for Kathleen, who was not originally from Townsend, as she researched Townsends history to write her three books. He also provided much support in her efforts to save the Holt & Balcolm Logging Camp Museum in Lakewood. Terry Rank eagerly shared with me whatever information he had about Lakewood. To show his pride in a town he loved, he named different areas of his SuperValu grocery store after people who had played a part in Lakewoods history. Terry chose to sell the books written by local authors without taking any percentage of the sales price to cover his costs. That was a significant factor in these authors being able to afford the high cost of publishing a book. Family and friends of Rich and Terry, UNAC members, and all of northern Oconto County continue to mourn the loss of these two irreplaceable human beings. Fortunately, both left behind strong families that are stepping forward to fill the void and maintain their legacies. This is critical as we live in a time when nearly all of our top local graduates must leave us in order to pursue their dreams. But as Rich and Terry would say, We will endure; we always do.

It is time to start make preparations for the Town Hall Players annual Variety show. This year's show will take place on the 26th of April. There are so many talented people in this area, that it would be a shame not to showcase them. This is a fundraiser for the local food pantry. All admission ticket sales are donated to St. John's church in Townsend. Last year, we were abe to help many people with a $1500.00 donation. We could not do this without the many talented performers and volunteers that make this a success each year. We will have two shows 1:30 and 7:00pm. Plan on coming early because the shows are always sell outs. We had an organizational meeting in early February and have chosen this year's theme to be Musical Memories. Songs and skits will be taken from past and present famous Musicals, from which there were many. If you can sing, dance, play an instrument or just want to help, join us for fun and a truly satisfying experience. Our First meeting will be held at the Townsend Town Hall. On March 1st at 1:00. If you can not attend a Sat. afternoon, we will also have several Friday evenings. For information call: Ruth 715 276 9563 for Sue 715 276 7317

"Red Arrow Snowmobile ATV Club, headquartered in Townsend, is in the process of writing its history," says newly-elected Red Arrow President Joseph Kamp. "In that regard, I have directed our Secretary Mary Stehula to assemble an ad hoc committee." Mary has recruited Rhonda Kroll, Kathleen Marsh, and Therese Erler. The group met June 27 to establish goals, procedures, and assign duties. "Red Arrow turns 45 this year," said Stehula. "So much has happened since the club was officially founded in 1968. Our committee's goal is to gather information to document our past 45 years and then update each year going forward. We would like to publish a detailed accounting of Red Arrow's first 50 years in 2018." Our guest practitioner weekend with Tina and Rose March 14th and March 16th is almost fully booked, so if you haven't called us to reserve a time slot, do so ASAP there are only a few spots left open!

A Word or Two From Dr. Adam

Hello everyone. My name is Michael Rzepka. I used to be the Humane Officer for six towns in Northern Oconto County. I was asked by the editor if I wanted to write an article for this paper. Well, here goes. Have you all had enough of this winter yet? I certainly have. But do you know who else is sick of this weather too. Your four legged furry friends. Your fidos are running out of places to do their duty. They are also tired of getting cold feet. They dont like the cold frigid wind either. Remember, if you are cold and your feet and hands get cold, their feet can get frostbite also. When the weatherman says windchills are a factor for us humans, it goes for them too. So, watch that you dont have to make a trip to the Veterinarian for your four legged furry friends. My little Dachshund Porchia hates the winter cold weather. When it is time to go out, she runs, finds her spot and is quick to come back inside. Another thing about this winter. The banks are very high. Dont let your fido run at large. Not only is it against State Statute, but vehicles might not see them and they could get hit. So, take care of yourself this winter. And take care that your fido or fluffy doesnt get hurt from this frigid weather either. Porchia says hi to everyone out there too. Have a nice remaining day.

How to Select Athletic Shoes

Because footwear plays such an important role in the function of bones and jointsespecially for runners and other athleteschoosing the right shoe can help prevent pain in your back, hips, knees, and feet. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as the very best athletic shoeevery pair of feet is different, every shoe has different features, and overall comfort is a very personal decision. For this reason, it is recommended that you first determine your foot type: normal, flat, or high-arched.

The Normal Foot

Normal feet have a normal-sized arch and will leave a wet footprint that has a flare, but shows the forefoot and heel connected by a broad band. A normal foot lands on the outside of the heel and rolls slightly inward to absorb shock. Best shoes: Stability shoes with a slightly curved shape.

The Flat Foot

This type of foot has a low arch and leaves a print that looks like the whole sole of the foot. It usually indicates an over-pronated footone that strikes on the outside of the heel and rolls excessively inward (pronates). Over time, this can cause overuse injuries. Best shoes: Motion-control shoes or high-stability shoes with firm midsoles. These shoes should be fairly resistant to twisting or bending. Stay away from highly cushioned, highly curved shoes, which lack stability features.

Bring the family and Celebrate the First Tap Festivities kicking off the 2014 Maple Syrup Season for the State of Wisconsin at Bear Paw Sugar Bush, Bear Paw Scout Camp. Key Information: $7.50 per person (Breakfast Included from 8am - 11am) Pancake Breakfast with Bear Paw Sugar Bush Maple Syrup Dozens of Activities for all ages (Most activities are free) Silent Auction Trading Post Brat Fry Directions: Hwy 32 North to Mountain, Right on County Hwy W, Drive 3 mi to Bear Paw Road, Keep right on Bear Paw Camp Lane Activities for the day include: Archery, BB Guns, Bit and Brace, Branding, Leaf Coloring, Ice Skating, Outdoor cooking (Dutch Ovens and Pudgy Pies), Marshmallow roasting, Pioneer Village\Story Telling, Sledding, Sleigh Rides, Silent Auction, Tapping Demonstrations, Tubing Demonstrations, Throwing Hawks, Tours of Camp, Tours of Sugar Bush, Tours of Sugar Shack,Turkey Bowling, Two-man Saw, Other Activities TBD Activities will have volunteer staff. Most activities are free however due to costs of some activities a nominal fee of $0.50 may be charged. *Activities are subject to change based on weather conditions. Schedule: 7:30am Gates Open 8:00am Breakfast Begins, Silent Auction Opens

The purpose is to teach the history and methods of maple syrup production as well as provide another Scouting activity in the Spring to spend the day at one of the Bay-Lakes Councils beautiful facilities. As the operation has grown into collecting several thousand gallons of sap through several hundred taps, one thing has remained as the key tenant, Education.

The High-Arched Foot

The high-arched foot leaves a print showing a very narrow bandor no band at allbetween the forefoot and the heel. A curved, highly arched foot is generally supinated or under-pronated. Because the foot doesnt pronate enough, usually its not an effective shock absorber. Best shoes: Cushioned shoes with plenty of flexibility to encourage foot motion. Stay away from motion-control or stability shoes, which reduce foot mobility.

We had some fun math activities to celebrate our 100th Day of School. Kindergarten cut out 100 hearts, took 100 steps, made a 100th Day trailmix by bringing in 100 pieces of something, and journaled about what we'd do with $100.00. First Grade counted and graphed, by 10s, 100 pieces of different snack foods to mix together for trailmix. Student Council sold a snack during lunch recess for 50 cents or 2/$1.00 to raise money for their dance.
