Rummage Sale will be held Saturday, May 24th from 8:00
a.m. and Sunday, May 25th, 8:00 a.m. until noon.

needed to keep things running smooth.
Great deals can be found by filling a brown bag

your budget, and is fun as well.

deals on items that can be hard to find elsewhere.
This year, we have added a raffle with items
donated by local artists.
If you have items to donate or want to volunteer to

Festival Committee. It has been in existence for the past
33 years.. All of the money is raised through food and
beverage sales and some donations from businesses.
The town has never been asked to donate tax payers
money.
Through the years we have put in field lights,
bleachers, and built the concession stand, score booth
and dugouts. We have built a play area, which this year is
being updated with another piece of playground
equipment. The dugouts were updated and lowered so
that it is easier to see the score board,.
We start the season with Little League teams in
the first part of May. Then starting on the 4th of June and
following every Wednesday night with Jack and Jill
baseball teams. These generally consist of 8 to 10 teams.
From 6:00 to 10:00 we have two teams play off every hour..
June 28th and 29th will be our mens' softball tournament.
On the Fourth of July we hold the parade and a
craft fair. And in the evening we have children' games
before the very popular fireworks display.
In July we help out the baseball teams from Mardi
Gras by sharing our field and workers.
In August we have our Jack and Jill Tournament.,
which this year will be August 16th.
In September we start planning for the next
season.
We are always
looking for more people
interested in joining us and working for the community
The summer activities of the Festival committee

County Forest Sales bring
great return to county coffers
By Mike Monte
The Forest County Forestry Department has just
sold seven timber sales, to the highest bidder, with a record
amount of revenue. The total of the seven sales is
$264,935. The seven sales total 309 acres, and this puts
the average return on the timber lands at $857.40 per acre.
The Forest County Forestry Department has been
working on adding to the amount of timber lands in the
county as mentioned in an article recently published on
these pages. The idea behind adding to the acreage of

Antique map event on May 24th
by Forest County Historical Society
Map-making has gone from art to space-age
technology. Maps provide a visual journey through
history and chronicle our development.
On Saturday, May 24th, the Forest County
Historical and Genealogical Society will be hosting an
event that highlights this journey. Among the items
featured are nearly 100 antique maps of Wisconsin and
Forest County from Territorial times to the present. These
maps trace the somewhat tumultuous formation of our
counties and the development of the Northwoods. They
include hand-colored maps of Wisconsin as part of the
“Northwest Territory”, sportsmans’ maps from the 50’s
and 60’s, and a huge map of Forest County from the 1920’s
showing the locations of the rural schools. Atlas maps
from a century ago that served as a window on the world
for isolated rural Americans and provided challenging
geography lessons for their children.
Forest Service
maps from the 1950’s, complete with local rangers’
handwritten notes concerning timber conditions and
beaver dams, that served as resource management tools.
Antique surveying equipment and materials will
be on display, alongside demonstrations on today’s
cutting-edge mapping and surveying technologies.
Information on the use of on-line map collections for
genealogical and historic research will be presented
through live computer navigation of these sites. Visitors
can browse through a large collection of National
Geographic maps spanning over 60 years from the 1930’s
to the 1990’s.
The event will be held from 10:00-4:00 at the
Crandon City Hall, 601 W. Washington, two blocks south of
Hwy 8 on Boulevard Ave. or four blocks west of Lake Ave
(main street) on Washington. The event is free of charge
but donations are greatly appreciated and will be used for
upcoming museum projects.

Seekers of Light - Date Change
It's that time again - but there is a slight change to our
Saturday get-together. As many of you know, I have begun a
group for those of us who are grieving or are in a dark place
that wants to hinder us from living. We have been meeting the
last Saturday of each month to eat breakfast and talk. It has
been a great time and we have all enjoyed the time - however,
because of Memorial Day, we will meet on the 24th instead.
We will meet at the Hotel Café this time so mark it down on
your calendar: Saturday, the 24th at the Hotel Café in

Ag Land Easements
Cont. from pg 1
District Conservationist, Rhinelander. "We
encourage state and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, tribal organizations, and
private landowners to contact the local NRCS office to find
out more details."
The ACEP, created through the 2014 Farm Bill,
funds easements for agricultural lands and for wetland
reserves.
• Approved agricultural easements would prevent
productive working lands from being converted to nonagricultural uses and maximize protection of land devoted
to food production. Cropland, rangeland, grassland,
pastureland and nonindustrial private forestland are
eligible.
• Wetland reserve easements would restore and enhance
wetlands and improve habitat. Eligible lands include
farmed or converted wetlands that can be successfully
and cost-effectively restored.Applications are currently
being accepted for wetlands reserve easements and will
be rated according to the easement's potential for
protecting and enhancing habitat for migratory birds, fish
and other wildlife. Applications must be submitted to
Wisconsin NRCS by June 6.
The ACEP combines NRCS' former Farm and
Ranch Lands Protection, Grassland Reserve and
Wetlands Reserve programs.
Learn more about ACEP and other Farm Bill programs at
www.nrcs.usda.gov/farmbill.
To get started with NRCS, visit your local USDA
Service Center or www.nrcs.usda.gov/GetStarted. Learn

Wabeno Elementary Penny War
Wa b e n
o Elementary
recently held
a penny war
sponsored
b y
t h e
Elementary
S t u d e n t
Council. The
proceeds of
the penny
war went to
the March of
Dimes Walk
for Babies
that took
place in
Green Bay on
April 26th.
The money
we raised
w e n t t o
support Team
Blondheim.
M r s .
Blondheim
was our Four
Ye a r O l d
Kindergarten
teacher who had to leave us earlier in the year because of complications of her pregnancy with twins.
The object of a penny war is to have more pennies in your class' bucket than silver coins and
dollars. The silver and dollars count against the pennies that you have. For example, if you have 100
pennies in your bucket and another class comes along and puts a dollar bill in your bucket, you are at zero
because that canceled out your pennies. The class that won the penny war had a balance that was to the
good of $36.97. The winning class was Mrs. Jakubiec's Fifth Graders.
We raised a total of $576.47 for the March of Dimes that Mrs. Blondheim and her family turned in
when they took part in the walk on the 26th. Way to Step It Up Wabeno Elementary for a very worthwhile
cause. Pictured is Mrs. Blondheim with her twins, Bentley and Karley, with the student council and advisors
and the winning class.

Al Peters-Support Staff Person
of the Year at Wabeno Schools
HELP WANTED
Experienced Full Time Bartender
Al Peters was first nominated and then selected
as Support Staff Person of the Year at the Wabeno Schools
for the 2013-2014 school year. Mr. Peters is in his first year
of working at the elementary school as a Special
Education Aide. His primary job is to work with one of our
special needs children. As stated in the nomination form
for Al, he is calm, caring, gentle, and compassionate to
this child and every child he comes in contact with. His
voice is so gentle and calming that it helps the students
that he is talking to also stay calm and respond in a
positive manner. He takes time to interact with other
students. He may be seen on the playground watching his
student and giving pushes on the swings to other
students. During his lunchtime he eats mainly in the
luchroom with the students. He will sit at a far table and it
won't be long before he has a whole cluster of children
sitting around him. They will all be carrying on a nice,
polite conversation with Mr. Peters interjecting bits of
wisdom about getting along and other pearls of social life.
He treats everyone, adults and students, with respect and
honesty.
Al was involved with the Home and School
Organization at the Wabeno Elementary even before he
was on staff. He helps in planning and working special
events such as Open House School Supply table, staffing
the Home and School and Family Engagement Team's
table at conferences, and helping with the Carnival Night
(which this year is June 3rd). One of the things that Mr.
Peters does is to wait for the bus to arrive with his students
in the morning. While he is waiting, Al is opening the door
for everyone that comes and greets them with a smile and
a very friendly 'Good Morning'.
It sure is a great way to start your day and it sure
is great having Mr. Peters be a part of our staff.
Congratulations on your recognition and your award, Al!
You are very deserving of it.

MATTHEW S. THERRIEN,
26, resident of Hilo, Hawaii,
son of long-time
Lakewood, WI residents
Mark and Rae Therrien,
was killed in a car accident
in Hawaii on April 6, 2014.
Matthew was born on July
21, 1987, in Bangkok,
Thailand and was adopted
by the Therrien family at
the age of 2. He attended
local Wabeno schools,
where he particularly
e n j o y e d M o c k Tr i a l ,
Forensics, Drama, Band,
and playing in a variety of
sports. He graduated as
president of his WHS Class of 2006 and was a member of
St. John Lutheran Church in Townsend.
Matt attended UW Madison for two years and
then served as an AmeriCorps volunteer in Seattle, where
his passion for mentoring youth was amplified.He moved
to Hawaii in 2011, where he worked as the mentoring
coordinator and then programming director for Boys and
Girls Club of Hawaii before returning to school full-time as
an English major at University of Hawaii - Hilo (UHH). He
also served on the regional board of Big Brothers Big
Sisters of Hawaii Island while completing his education.
He was described as a “once in 20 years kind of student”
by Kenith Simmons, a professor of English and performing
arts at UHH. Simmons said that Therrien, who would have
graduated May 17, will be awarded his English degree
posthumously. Matthew Therrien received the 2012
Droste Award for outstanding work in poetry from the
university. Matt had a “very deep passion for social
injustice and working towards a world that is more
inclusive and equitable.” (his words) and that was
reflected in his relationships and writings.
Matthew is survived by his parents, Mark and Rae
Therrien of Laupahoehoe, HI, sisters Mari (Michelle)
Therrien of State College, PA, and Kate (Claude) Betene of
St. Paul, MN, and partner Vicky Chung of San Francisco,
CA. He was a proud uncle of Abigail Betene and Avery,
Ellie, and Isaiah Matthew Therrien, and many other family
and friends. He was preceded in death by his maternal
grandparents Jeannine and LeRoy White of Mountain, WI,
and his paternal grandparents Loretta and Norman
Therrien of Fitchburg, MA.
Celebrations of Matthew’s life have taken place at
Laupahoehoe Point on the beautiful Hamakua Coast of
Hawaii, at Alki Beach in Seattle, in Yaounde, Cameroon, in
New York City, and there will be one on Saturday, May 24 in
Lakewood, WI, at the McCauslin Brook Golf Course at 5
p.m.
A memorial fund has been set up in Matt’s name
(celebratingmatthew.blogspot.com). Anyone who knew
him knew he loved books and writing, helping others, and
most of all, finally having become “Uncle Matt”. He looked
forward to having children of his own someday and to
publishing some of his poems and his novel. The family is
very appreciative of the education he received from the
Wabeno Area School District and for all the support and
love that continues to be shown from friends far and near.

service in Hawaii, visit weloveMatthew.shutterfly.com and

The Committee, which represents a wide range of
stakeholder interests, will review the proposals and make
project recommendations to the CNNF Forest Supervisor,
Paul Strong.
Funds for the projects come from Title II of the
reauthorized Secure Rural Schools and Community SelfDetermination Act (Public Law 110-343). The Title II funds
are made available by Florence, Forest and Oconto
counties, which receive these federal funds based on the
percentage of land within the county under federal
ownership, federal receipts collected on the forest –
including timber sales -- and county per capita income.
Project funds will be dedicated to road, trail and
infrastructure maintenance or obliteration; soil productivity
improvement; improvements in forest ecosystem health;
watershed restoration and maintenance; restoration,
maintenance, and improvement of wildlife and fish habitat;
control of noxious and exotic weeds; and, re-establishment
of native species.
Projects must be located on the Nicolet portion of
the CNNF, or directly benefit National Forest lands or
resources.
Work can be completed by Forest Service
employees, through partnerships or by open-bid
contracting with individuals and corporations. The funds
for approved projects are available for 2014 and/or 2015
project initiation. Project proposals of any dollar amount
are encouraged.
Members of the public, non-profit organizations
and local governments can submit project proposals.
Project application forms and instructions, information
about the RAC process and committee member contact
information are available on the Nicolet RAC site.

On Tuesday, April 8th the Goodman-Armstrong
Creek School District hosted a pep rally in honor of those
students in grades 3-8 and 10 who earned an advanced or
proficient rating on the 2013-2014 Wisconsin Knowledge
and Competencies Examination. Also honored at the pep
rally were the district's students who grew thirty points or
more from their previous year's exam.
As an additional incentive for student growth and
achievement, the Goodman-Armstrong Creek PTO
donated an ipad mini to one lucky student. To earn entries
into the ipad mini drawing, students had to score
advanced or proficient on the test subjects assessed on
the Wisconsin Knowledge and Competencies
Examination. Students could also earn additional entries
by growing more than thirty points in math or reading in
one year, regardless of their score on the examination.
The Goodman-Armstrong Creek School District
tested 63 students this year. Between those 63 students,
163 entries for the ipad mini raffle were earned! The school
district staff and board of education are extremely proud of
the achievement and the growth of their students.
Fifth grade student Christopher Franks won the
drawing for the ipad mini. Here are some photos of one
very excited young man and Goodman-Armstrong Creek
School Board President Carl Frydrych.
Congratulations Christopher!

Forest County Humane Society
The Forest County Humane Society met on
Monday, April 28th at the Crandon Library. Items
discussed were: the 4 camera system donated by the
Crandon Lions and the installation by Oliver Miotke. The
system is not to deter people from bringing animals to the
shelter, but rather protect the volunteers and resident
animals from harm when unexpected animals are simply
dropped over the fence without proper registration.
New shelter hours were implemented. They are
7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The
retail shop at 301 E. Pioneer Street is open 9:00 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 2:00
p.m. on Saturday. The sales at the shop are a major factor
in helping the shelter operate. Help is needed to now to
organize and move donations for the shelter to the shop.
Contact Kevin Danielczak at 715-889-0678 if you can help.
New resalable items are always welcome at the shelter.
First quarter numbers were presented. 27 dogs
were received and 22 were adopted. 28 cats were received
and 15 were adopted. 40 percent came from the Town of
Lincoln, 34 percent were from the City of Crandon, 17

from Argonne and 4 percent was from Laona. The shelter
currently has 9 dogs and 28 cats, call 715-478-2098 to set
up an appointment for Becky to show you the animals.
Contracts with the city and towns were
discussed. Only 7 of the 14 townships have contracts with
the humane society. Of those 3 are late in their payments.
The Potawatomi and Mole Lake have made great
donations to the shelter as well.

FamilyWize, United Way Worldwide partner
to offer prescription assistance for
Northwoods families
Northwoods United Way, United Way Worldwide
and FamilyWize Community Service Partnership—a unique
national grassroots social enterprise that is improving the
health and financial stability of millions of Americans who are
uninsured or underinsured—today announced a new local
partnership. Through a national education campaign and the
distribution of free prescription savings cards, FamilyWize
and United Way are on a mission to help individuals and
families get the medicines they need, and ultimately ensure
that everyone has access to affordable prescription
medications
“We are proud to join forces with FamilyWize to help
protect the health and well-being of our community,” said
Nancy Sattler, Executive Director, Northwoods United Way.
“The consequences of skipping medications can be
devastating from disease progression to large medical bills
and bankruptcy, which is why making prescriptions
affordable and accessible for families is a top priority for
United Way.”
According to Consumer Reports, Americans who
are struggling financially tend to skip their medicines or lower
their dosages. A Commonwealth Fund Biennial Health
Insurance Survey in 2012 shows 46% of adults in the
U.S.—representing more than 80 million people—have either
no prescription coverage or inadequate coverage, making
medication unaffordable. Anywhere from 29 million to 44
million people annually will remain without insurance and
prescription benefits over the next 10 years—as projected by
the Congressional Budget Office (Kaiser Family Foundation,
and Urban Institute).
“The FamilyWize card is the primary prescription
benefit for millions without health insurance and a critical
backup benefit for the underinsured when medicine isn’t
covered by their health plan—which, sadly, statistics show
the majority of American families struggle to pay for
prescriptions,” said Dan Barnes, president and CEO of
FamilyWize. “Without prescription assistance, families are
left making difficult decisions between getting medications
and buying food. The United Way national partnership will
mean we can reach deep into communities across the
country to help tens of millions of people afford the
medications they need and deserve.”
"United Way is focusing on creating opportunity for
all by improving health, education and financial stability,"
added Stacey Stewart, U.S. president of United Way
Worldwide. "Our Partnership with FamilyWize helps us
advance that cause, and 1,000 United Ways across America
are helping people be healthier and more productive."
“Working with nearly 1,000 United Ways, the
partnership promotes a variety of grassroots initiatives,” said
Susan Gilmore, executive director of community
engagement, FamilyWize. “These initiatives include health
and financial resources for families and individuals through
FamilyWize.org, which features links to local health
departments, community centers, food banks and pantries,
utility companies and housing assistance organizations.”
Additionally, FamilyWize and United Way work with
both large and small companies to reach employees and
customers who do not have access to prescription benefits
or choose to opt out of these benefits, providing them with an
alternate access to affordable prescription medicine.
As the only prescription assistance service of its
kind to pass 100% of its savings directly to its members,
FamilyWize brings together millions of uninsured and
underinsured individuals and families into one umbrellabuying group to offer savings. The average discount is 40%
and is sometimes as much as 75% or more, similar to what
pharmacies give the largest insurance companies and
employers. Since 2005, FamilyWize has helped more than six
million people get the medicine they otherwise could not
afford, which accounts for more than $600 million in direct
savings on prescriptions.
The FamilyWize prescription card is accepted at
more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide, including CVS,
Rite Aid, Walgreens, K-Mart, Target and Walmart. For more
information, or to download a free prescription card or
compare the discounted price of prescriptions at nearby
pharmacies, visit FamilyWize.org.
For information on how to get your free FamilyWize
prescription drug discount card, please visit their site at

Menominee, Oconto, Oneida, Shawano, and Vilas
Counties. County supervisors and the county Land
Conservation Committees sponsor the Lumberjack
RC&D Council, which meets quarterly to make decisions
and identify projects to assist local projects and
communities. The mission of Lumberjack RC&D is to
**
enhance area natural resources, promote a
higher standard of living and improve the quality of life.
**
foster partnerships between public and private
sectors for the benefit of area citizens.
Lumberjack RC&D belongs to the communities it
serves and can assist
with procurement and
administration of grants; award financial assistance;
serve as a fiscal sponsor for developing non-profits;
coordinate research, technical assistance, and events;
and provide a range of project support.
This past fall, Teresa Romprey and Terri Brauer,
two Wabeno Elementary teachers, started the Wabeno
Lego League (WLL). Wabeno Lego League is part of Junior
First Lego League (Jr.FLL), an international initiative that
supports and expands the imaginations of children and
increases their interests in science and technology through
hands on activities. In addition, it offers children a way to
practice literacy skills in fun, interactive, and creative ways.
Jr. FLL is part of FIRST, which stands for Foundation for
Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.
Teams are divided by age brackets: K-3; 4th-8th,
7th-12th; 9th-12th. Initially, teams focus on team building,
problem solving and simple machines. As the children
progress they are introduced to more advanced concepts,
such as robotics and computer programming.
The students that test piloted the Junior FIRST
Lego League were: Adisun Romprey, Braden Brauer,
Cameron Sefcik, Ryan Roy, Joseph Lampereur and Nate
Gilpin.
Wabeno Lego League was made possible this
year by four local generous partners. The businesses have
committed to partnering with Wabeno Lego League to
support science and technology and give the children this
wonderful opportunity.
We were supported by the
following businesses: Infinity Wood Floors, Nicolet Plastics
and Northern Lakes Service. Wabeno Home and School
Association provided support for this endeavor also.
The Wabeno Lego League has and will continue to
provide children with real life applications. In order to do
this, we need continued support. If you or your business
are interested in being a partner with Wabeno Lego League
or you are interested in volunteering, please contact Teresa
Romprey at [email protected] or Terri Brauer at
[email protected] or 715-616-2159.

Home Remedies to Cure
and Prevent Sunburn
Avoid lotions that contain topical anesthetic
medications because you can become sensitized and
then allergic to that medicine.
Make a paste of Barley, turmeric and yogurt in
equal proportions. Apply it over the area of sunburns for
sunburn relief.
Sunscreen should be generously applied. If out
in the sun for a prolonged period of time during the day,
wearing a hat and other protective clothing is
recommended. Light clothing reflects the sun most
effectively.
If the sunburn is not localized to one area, you
may want to soak in the tun instead. First, clean the tub
with hydrogen peroxide or a small amount of bleach and
be sure to rinse the tub thoroughly. For this bath you will
need tons of tea bags. Brew the tea with boiling water until
it is very strong and you can cool this down with half cold
water. You should not get in until the water is no longer
warm, and be sure to get out when the tea water gets too
cold. You will need to either lie down in the tub or have the
tub filled high enough to cover all the sunburned areas.
Apply cold aloe vera gel, apple cider vinegar, or
plantain to help heal sunburn.
Another effective remedy for sunburn. Dip some
gauze into milk and apply it to your sunburned skin. The
tannic acid in the tea draws the burn out of the skin and
heals it. After just one application, most sunburns are no
longer painful and are much less red. However, this
treatment will act on the pain but may not prevent peeling.
Sunburn Home Remedies
In cases of over-exposure, tanning and sunburn,
here are a few excellent remedies.
Coconut oil is very gentle for skin. Massage
whole body with coconut oil before going out in sun. It
helps in sunburn prevention. Milk is also a good food
remedy for sun burns. To get relief apply on affected area
using a cloth.
Applying ice to the burned area is beneficial.
Using cold tea bags will remove tanning from the
sunburns.
Sliced small pieces of raw cucumber or potato
and applying to affected area will reduce redness and
inflammation caused by sunburn. Application of sandal
wood paste also provide relief from the burning sensation.
Mix wheat, flour, milk, olive oil, or barley flour,
honey and raw egg white paste to make a mixture. Use this
mixture for treating sunburn. It will be proven best home
remedy for sunburn skin. Taking a bath of tide laundry
detergent will provide relief from sunburn blisters.
Take 2 tomatoes puree, cucumber puree and mix
with lemon juice. Apply this paste all over the suntanned
and sunburnt skin. Let it dry. Dab the puree again. Repeat
3 times and let it dry thoroughly, then rinse off. Use this
treatment for a week and see the difference. It not only
helps to soothe the burnt area, it adds a glow to the skin
too.
Boil and mash some cabbage leaves. Apply the
pulp all over the tanned and sunburnt areas. Leave on for
15 minutes before washing off with cold water. Repeat this
sunburn treatment for at least a week. This remedy acts as
a protective and soothing balm. Use whenever you have
been exposed to the hot sun.
Rub green gourd all over the affected areas.
Repeat 3-4 times. Helps in curing sunburn and soothes
skin.
Aloe Vera is a natural and soothing treatment
option for sunburn and tan. Just pluck a few leaves of the
plant, mash them and mix with lemon juice. Apply all over
the affected areas. It cleanses, clears and nourishes the
skin.
Honey and lime juice is also used in treating
sunburn. Mix 2 spoons of honey with lemon juice and
apply over the sunburned or tanned skin areas. Helps to
lighten and soothe the skin.
Homemade Sunburn Treatment using Tumeric
Powder and Milk
Take 3 tablespoons of milk and add to it one
tablespoon of turmeric powder. Apply all over the face or
affected areas. Leave it to dry. Rub in circular motions and
then rinse off. It not only helps to remove tan it also helps
remove fine facial hair.

Purple
Loosestrife
Beetle Rearing
workshop on
May 21
in Antigo
Purple loosestrife is an extremely invasive wetland
perennial plant with purple flowers from Europe that was
introduced to Wisconsin in the early 1900's. Unfortunately, it
is extremely aggressive and can easily overtake a wetland,
becoming the dominant plant. It originally made its way here
as a popular garden plant and quickly spread. A mature
loosestrife plant can produce over one million seeds
annually. It provides poor habitat for wetland animals and
most populations decline once the plant invades. The plant
is not invasive in its native range because native insects keep
the populations in check. The DNR and UW Extension
started a program in Wisconsin raising Galerucella beetles,
which eat purple loosestrife plants. From there the program
grew and volunteer groups can now grow these beetles to
release into area wetlands.
On May 21st, 2014, a purple loosestrife beetle
rearing workshop will be held at the Antigo DNR Service
Center at 1:00 p.m. Last year the workshop was extremely
successful with over 70 plants potted and 70,000 beetles
raised. During the workshop you will learn about purple
loosestrife and the beetles that control them, pot some plants
and take some home with you. During this workshop expect
to get a little dirty! Refreshments will be provided. Please
join myself and the Langlade County Waterways Association
in protecting Langlade County wetlands!
If you are
interested in this opportunity, please RSVP by May 20th,
2014.

Cont. from pg. 1
know, timber is like growing a garden, but with a lot longer
wait between harvests.
For those who don't understand how proper
forest management works, it should be noted that different
species require different management. Hardwood stands
are usually managed on a 15-year cycle. To be more
precise, about every 15 years a forester, armed with a paint
gun and a tally sheet and diameter tape can cruise a stand
and paint hardwood trees that have reached the end of
their prime growing cycle or that have been damaged by
storms, lightning or even porcupines eating from the top.
A forester has to use prudence when marking hardwoods,
as shade is important to the young trees growing under
the mature trees. Species like maple, ash, basswood, oak
and other hardwood species are termed "shade tolerant."
These saplings can grow under mature trees in a shaded
area. When logged carefully, that forest can be harvested
again in 15 years. If too much sunlight is let in, aspen will
start to grow in the understory.
Tree species like aspen and balsam are almost
always clearcut, often bringing looks of horror to the faces
of those who don't understand the way different forest
species grow. But, if a select or marked harvest is
attempted in an aspen stand, it invariably doesn't work, as
wind will tip over much of the timber not cut. However, new
aspen stands interspersed with balsam have their place in
a well-balanced forest plan. Besides being a very useful,
fast-growing species, aspen stands also provide homes to
numerous species that need young, emerging forests to
prosper. Many of the warblers that nest in the North
require young forests, and their numbers have shown
declines in recent decades.
In addition, grouse,
woodcock and deer love the food and cover provided by a
new aspen forest, just ask any hunter where they find the
best hunting. Other hunters, like goshawks and other
predator birds also like to eat these game species. It is a
good idea to remember that when there is an aspen
clearcut, the forest isn't gone, it just got younger, it doesn't
have to be re-planted, and in 45 to 50 years, it will be
mature and can be harvested again.
With this new batch of timber sales, all selling for
top dollar, the county has reaped some profit from their
land holdings, jobs and resources are made available, and
some species of wildlife will look at the new forests with
appreciation.
The acreage of county forest lands is increasing
with judicious buying of properties that will add to the
timber base and in some instances tie in with recreational
needs as well as supply timber for sale in the future. To
date, Forest County has 14,089 acres of county forest, with
the addition of 3,249 acres purchased in recent years
using DNR project loan Then the county applies for a
Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Grant to pay half the costs,
reducing the purchase price by half to the county. The
Stewardship grant/loan is then paid back by the county
using 20% of their annual total timber income. This is an
interest-free loan.
Dave Ziolkowski is the County Forester, and his
office is staffed by Mary Torgerson, who does secretarial
work and Dan Peters, a forester who does field work and
number crunching in the office.
Setting up a timber sale is a time-consuming
process. Boundary lines have to be painted and maps of
the sale have to be created. Timber volumes have to be
computed from measurements made in the field. A
knowledge of standing timber has to include the value of
each species and what each individual tree will be when
logged. Smaller trees are measured and counted as
pulpwood cords, while larger tree volume is in board feet
and is judged to make sawtimber and/or veneer. On select
cut timber sales, each tree is marked with paint, and on
clearcut sales, an estimate is made on the standing timber
using proper tools for estimating size.
After the field work is done, more time is added to
the job of creating a timber sale for bid. And that part of the
task is crunching the huge amount of data that is compiled
to give the potential bidder an idea of what he is bidding
on, and what he will be willing to bid and make a profit.
Up to four weeks of work are needed for many of
the timber sales offered by the county, and sometimes,
with help from DNR Foresters Craig Williams, Todd
Pulvermacher and Jason Headson, they can be done
quicker, but with the same man hours.
Add in the recreation duties also performed by
the office, and it can be a busy place. It will be even busier
with the addition of more timberlands available to provide
more sales and more county revenue. Oh, and I almost
forgot the hunting opportunities!
Congratulations to the Forest County Forestry
and Recreation Dept. for a job well-done.
