11 Years Ago January 5, 2011

Several public office posi tions open School Board, Stanley Council looking for newcomers this time around By Daniel Williams The deadline to run for public office within the City of Stanley, Village of Boyd, and the Stanley-Boyd School District is nearing with some positions open for political newcomers. January 4th is the deadline for filing nomination papers to run for the four council positions in Stanley, three trustee and village pres- ident positions in Boyd, and three school board positions open for this election season.

For the City of Stanley, the four council positions open are: First Ward, Eugene Hodowanic; Second Ward, Jeanne Gates; Third Ward, Mike Henke; and Fourth and Fifth Ward, Jeremiah Taylor. All council members except for Hodowa nic have taken out nomina- tion papers. Henke is the only member that had returned papers as of last week with Hodowanic having already filed non-candidacy papers. The Village of Boyd has four positions open, three trust ee positions and the Village President position. Village President, Randy Setzer, has taken nomination papers but has not returned them yet. The three trustee positions open for election are currently held by: Dale Isaacs, Dick Schara and Robert Zwielhofer. No trustee positions have had nomination papers filed yet. Zwielhofer has declared can didacy but has not returned his papers yet. Schara has neither taken nor returned papers for his position.

High School student to en ter Catholic seminary Daniel Williams, a senior at Stanley-Boyd High School and a parishioner at St Ber- nard=-St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorp, was recent ly accepted to be a seminarian for the Diocese of LaCrosse. Williams, 17, was accept – ed by the Diocesan Board of Admissions and His Excel – lency, Bishop William Patrick Callahan, at Holy Cross Dioc esan Center in La Crosse on December 22nd. "I am excited for the new adventure God has taken me on," said Williams. "The call – ing from God that I received to enter seminary is humbling in the fact that I will be dis – cerning the Holy Priesthood for the next eight years." The process for beig a Catholic priest takes eight years if entering at the beginning of college. Four years of studying Philosophy withy another four years, also called 'Major Seminary" studying Theology.

Williams will be double majoring in Philosophy and Catholic studies at the University of St. Thomas while attending St. John Vianney Seminary on campus in St. Paul, MN. For major semi – nary, there are many choices for locations, which will be worked out once Williams gets to that level of discernment.

Williams asks for prayers as he continues to learn more about this possible vocation. "I ask for the prayers of the faithful," said Williams. "I also would like to thank all of those who have given me the support I have needed through the past few years." Daniel is the son of Dan – iel and Tina Williams. His grandparents are Bill and Millie Mickett, Stanley, and Daniel and Pat Williams of New Bern, NC. His sisters are Sadie, 15; Grace, 10; and Me – lissa, 27. Daniel's pastor in Thorp is Fr. Keith Apfelbeck, who Williams says has been very supportive through the ac- ceptance process. Daniel will graduate from Stanley-Boyd in May.

Bits and Pieces aside A Letter to Santa From Mom Dear Santa, …Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room drawer. I think he wants his crayon back. Have a safe trip and remem ber to leave your wet boots by the chimney and come in and dry off by the fire so you don't catch a cold. Help yourself to cookies on the table but don't eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet.

Yours Always…Mom. P.S. – One more thing… you can cancel all my requests if you can keep my children young enough to be- lieve in (Nicholas of Myra, a man known and remembered for his generosity).

Health Tips from VMC and VMG Doctors All Together Now! One! Two! One ! Two!

By Dale Bergeson, PA Regular exercise is good for you.

(As my kids would say, "Well, Duh!") Of course, so are liver, lima beans, and getting a root canal. That doesn't mean we enjoy them. (If you enjoy liv –

er and lima beans, bon appe – tit. If you enjoy getting a root canal, lack of exercise isn't your biggest problem).

If making excuses quali – fied as aerobic exercise, we'd all be in much better shape.

But it doesn't. So how do we motivate ourselves to exercise regularly?

First, choose an exercise program that's right for you. It should be appropriate for your age, health, and abilities. It should be reasonably con –

venient. It should be some – thing you enjoy doing… Law of the Month… In Winter, Give Yourself Some Space: Don't Follow Too Closely Not leaving enough space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you this winter could mean a new grille on your car and a hike in insurance rates. It could also put a dent in your wallet.

“Following too closely is putting yourself and your passengers in unnecessary dan- ger," said Major Sandra Hux table of the Wisconsin State Patrol. “Should the vehicle in front of you have to stop suddenly on a slippery road, you won't have enough space to stop your vehicle, and that could lead to a crash."
