Boyd Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Corn Feed & Street Dance Friday, August 19th More info on page 5 Kollmansberger chosen as new city chief Neither personnel nor police committee chair cast a

vote for local officer

By Daniel Williams Stanley Police Department

Officer Russell L. Kollmans berger was chosen as the city’s net police chief Monday night after what was apparently a contentious hourlong closed session meeting of the Police and Fire Committee and Personnel Com- mittee. Kollmansberger will

replace retiring Police Chief

Roy Fredrickson (retiring

chief’s picture with David

Jankoski and Duane Booth on front page from 2011).

During the joint committee meeting, which the public wasn’t allowed to attend, raised voices could be heard outside the city council chambers in the Stanley Fire Station in what was a heated debate.

The committees and council handed down non-unanimous

decisions to pick Kollsmans –

berger over the other finalist, Christopher Dearth, an officer

with the Town of Grand Chute

near Appleton.

See “Chief” on page 3 City aims to purchase Hoffstatter property By Daniel Williams The City of Stanley, in an effort to solve the wetlands restoration headache caused by violating the permit issued for the lake dredging project,

voted to purchase 30 acres of

land from Peter Hoffstatter.

The purchase allows for the city to place the spoils from the wetlands area on the new- ly acquired land than make a deal with Hoffstatter or truck the spoils to another location, which would have cost the city around $300,000.

At the first August city council meeting, the council

quickly convened into closed

session and did not come out of closed session until 9:30

p.m. to discuss the land pur chase agreement being drafted between the city and Hoffstat- ter.

The city clerk has repeat edly refused to release the agreement while the city attorney, William Thiel, is revising several portions within the contract. There has been

no word yet on when exactly

the city plans to have the final

copy of the agreement made

available (saga continues).

Chief, from page 1 The committees forwarded a recommendation to the full common council, with just Personnel Committee Chair Jeanne Gates casting a "no" vote. The overall coun cil approved the committee’s recommendation by a vote of 5-1-1, with Gates voting “no” and Police and Fire Committee Chairman Duane Booth abstaining. Council member

Jeremiah Taylor was absent

from the meeting.

Letters To The Editor

Stop blaming the teachers!

In May, the Superintendent and the school board approved the expenditure for the hiring of a new administrator and $238,600 for pool repairs. In the Aug. 4 article in the Stanley Republican, instead of being honest and saying the taxes are being raised for two unpopular items, the tax increase is blamed on the teachers. And I

quote, “The increase will help

us be nicer to the teachers."

This tax increase is not for the

teachers…..And in the name of decency, STOP BLAM – ING THE TEACHERS! Sharon Roberge 20 Years Ago August 16, 2001 New Arrivals

Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome a Disease? Within the last few years, a condition referred to as “chronic fatigue syndrome” has been described in the med- ical literature. According to re cent articles, there is a debate as to whether or not this is a disease. The debate revolves

around its cause, how to diagnose it, and how it should be

treated. On one side are ex perts who claim that the con-

dition may not exist at all. An

equal number of experts seem to point to a health problem with sudden onset in previously otherwise healthy indi- viduals. According to these

experts, people of all ages, occupations, and income are affected, with women experiencing the condition more of- ten than men or children…The

fatigue may be so severe as to cause the person’s normal activity level to be less than half of what it was for the previ- ous six months. There may be

mild fever, sore throat, muscle

weakness, joint pain, and sleep disturbances. One of the most

common symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome is mental de-

pression. Treatment of chronic

fatigue syndrome varies with

symptoms. Prescription an tidepressant medicines have helped a number of individ- uals. Other treatments may

become apparent as we learn more about this interesting, yet

poorly described condition.

Madison has spoken! DPI Disallows Detachments From S-B School District The Department of Public Instruction’s State Appeal Board denied the detachment of five families from the Stan ley-Boyd School district in hearings in Madison on Mon- day.

The appeals board disallowed the detachment of the

Edwin Barth property from the district on a 4-1 vote. This

decision overturned a June decision by the School Com-

mittee, CESA 6, which would

have allowed the family to become part of the Thorp school


The board upheld the School Committee’s decision to disallow the detachment of Phillip Miller, Leo Hedler, Larry Kasziubowski and Rich ard Alger properties form the

district. The board voted 3-2 to

disallow their detachment into

the Thorp school district.

Bob Ebben, Al Brown, Lloyd Berseth and Charles Poulter represented the

school district in the hearings.

The vote was 11-2 for denial, with two members not voting.

Speaking in favor of the petition was Norval Boie and Walter Aumann, both of whom pointed out that the Stanley bus goes right by their farms and their children have always gone to high school there.

Opposing the move were Harvery Boie, Alvin Kuber-

sa, Robert Wagner, Arnold Anderson and Eugene Oberle.

Boie, Anderson and Oberle are members of the district 6

school board.

Boie, treasurer of the board, said the school had a teacher hired for next year, the budget is set, and the board was following the wishes of the majority as expressed in a meeting in June.

Wagner said he would want to go in the Stanley district, but not until the end of the next school year. He said he

couldn’t see any advantage in closing the school this year, as they have a good school and a good teacher.

The judge declared the weight-restricting vault ordinance unconstitutional, invalid, illegal and void, and ordered that the city be “restrained and enjoined from en- forcing such ordinance."

A conference of great histor-

ic importance took place last week at sea between Presi – dent Roosevelt and Winston

Churchill, Premier of Great

Britain. They revised the old

declaration of the World War that peace after this war shall be permanent, that this is a war to end wars.


After two years of nowyou- see-him-now-you -don’t and an incredible confusion of rumors as to whether he would make "The Great Dictator" and then, if after making it the film would have to be remade, the news is that “The Great Dictator” will open at the Stanley Theater on Sunday for a three day showing, at popular prices.

In “The Great Dictator” Chaplin is seen not only as the little tramp with the derby, the cane and the awkwardly fitting shoes, but in another role as well—that of a mighty dictator of a war-made pow- er. There are two stories that

converge—the story of the little barber of the ghetto and the

story of the palace.

TEXT OF STALWART CALL The following is the official call issued by the stalwart or-

ganization formed in Milwau –

kee last week: To the Republicans of Wis –

consin: The undersigned, Re –

publican members of the Leg islature of 1901, are convinced

that the Republican part of

Wisconsin is upon the verge of a crisis which can only be

averted by organized effort on the part of all Republicans

who consider party welfare

above personal ambition.

As representatives of the people, we view with alarm the persistent effort to strengthen the executive at the expense of the legislative department of the states.

The constitution says: “The legislative power shall be vest-

ed in senate and assembly."

The perpetuity of our institution depends upon the independence and integrity of each of the co-ordinate branches of our government. Neither is

responsible to the other, but each is responsible to the peo-

ple. Neither should submit to dictation from the other. Any

attempt to subordinate the legislative department to the control of the executive is revolutionary and deserves prompt and emphatic rebuke…
