The Stanley-Boyd Top Ten for 2011 (photos) Valedictorian Lyndsey Thorpe addressed graduates of Stanley-Boyd High School during commencement ceremonies Saturday afternoon.

Salutatorian Shelby Mahr gave her speech Saturday afternoon at the Stanley-Boyd graduation.

The other eight: Samantha Barr; Mara Bichanich; Zoey Czech; Tyler Mahal; Marissa Mahr; Taylor Paramoure; Rick Peggar; Daniel Williams III Stanley Police Chief retiring after 26 years on the force By Daniel Williams The Stanley Police Department will be losing its driving force at the end of August with the retirement of Police Chief Roy Fredrickson.

Fredrickson joined the Stanley Police Department on October 31, 1985 and has never served as an officer on any other

public service department other than Stanley. He has served his community for 19 years as police chief and worked for several mayors and many common council members.

(Mayor David Jankoski decides not to run again, tribute follows) Letters to Editor: To The Citizens of Stanley I picked up the paper and was very surprised His honor is retiring, you.

I can’t believe Jocko is hangin ‘em up Then a great idea came to me.

He served you faithfully for many a year It’s time to give him his due When I left this town a long time ago It was dying—It’s sad but it’s true.

But he dug new well, and brought in new business You should name something to honor him.

For he breathed new life in, and reversed the trend.

This is more than an old man’s whim.

He done a lot for the museum, and there’s always the wells The business par—and the list goes on But I’d cast my vote for the dam (if I had one) I’ll explain, this isn’t a con All politicians no matter how great Will have those who’ll never agree So a compromise is needed to get this thing through And the dam is just perfect you see.

So for those that adore him, it’s ‘Jankoski Dam’ And now here is the middle ground Those that don’t think quite as highly of him Can just say (something else. The dam at Chapman Lake was rebuilt starting in 2009).

57 Years Ago May 28, 1964 Rev. Willkom to Be Ordained In LaCrosse REV. JERRY H. Willkom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roman Willkom of Boyd, will be among the six young men ordained to the priesthood at the Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman in LaCrosse on Saturday, May 30 at 10:30 a.m.

Bishop John P. Treacy will ordain these men for work in the 19-county area of the diocese which includes 162 parishes.

The Sacrament of Holy Orders, one of the seven Sacraments of the Catholic church, empowers the young men to celebrate the Eucharistic liturgy (Mass) and administer Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation* in

some cases, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction

(last anointing) and officiate at

Matrimony (as witness to the love of the couple).

This will be the third ordination in the new Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman. Traditionally the bishop ordains his priests in the Cathedral which is the Mother Church of the diocese.

REV. WILLKOM was born in Boyd on January 8, 1939. He has two sisters and two brothers: Donna (Mrs. Ben Burish) of Peshtigo; Colleen (Mrs. William Schmitz) of Milwaukee; Duane of Milwaukee; and William of Rice Lake.

He attended elementary school at St. Joseph’s in Boyd before taking both his high school and college studies at Holy Cross Seminary in LaCrosse. During the past four years he has taken his theological studies at St. Francis Major Seminary in Milwaukee.

FATHER WILL offer his First Solemn Mass on Sunday, May 31 at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph’s church in Boyd with his pastor, the Rt. Msgr. Hilary A. Leuther as assistant priest. Father Kenneth Hennessy, OMI, will deliver the sermon. Deacon of the Mass is Father John Melloh; sub-deacon Father Thomas Etten; master of ceremonies Father Joseph Sullivan. Thurifer is Brother Dominic, OFM (Order of Franciscans Minor), and the two acolytes, his brothers, William and Duane.

A reception will be held in St. Josephs’ parish hall that same day from 2 to 5:30 p.m.

*Confirmation is ordinarily

reserved to the bishop, while in some cases where it is not possible for the bishop to be present he will designate a priest who does this for him.

that another might have it).

Virginia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Davis, Anson, was married to Carl Wagner of Delmar, at the Methodist Church in Delmar on Thursday May 29.

90 Years Ago June 12, 1931 CLARK COUNTY RURAL SCHOOLS HAVE GRADUATION Exercises Were Held at Neillsville on Friday and at Owen on Saturday Last Week.

Graduating exercises for eighth grade pupils of the rural schools in Clark County were held at the high school room in Neillsville last Friday and for the norther half of the county at Owen on Saturday.

Prof. Neale of the Steven’s Point Teacher’s College delivered a fine address

covering the history of public schools. He also urged students to attend high school the coming year… (The vestige of this has come down in tradition as middle school “Promotion.”) Elsewhere: the British submarine Poiseidon sank on Tuesday off the coast of Chine in the Yellow Sea in 20 fathoms (121.6 feet) of water with eight men imprisoned in one compartment and it has been impossible to raise the ship or rescue the men.

100 Years Ago June 3, 1921 SCHUBEL-MCCAFFERY A very happy consummation of a romance which their friends had watched with much interest occurred on Tuesday morning at St. Mary’s Church when Dorcas, daughter of Mrs. Anna McCaffery, was united in marriage to Charles, son of John Schubel of the Town of Edson.

110 Years Ago June 3, 1911 THE GAME By Bullock The local base ball season opened in Stanley Sunday and the game was enjoyed by a good crowd of fans. The playing of the game on a day that threatened rain all afternoon kept down the attendance, but no doubt the games will be well patronized this summer. As in the past, the management expects to give the town just as good games as the gate receipts will pay for. It is strictly a business proposition so far as the quality of games is concerned.

As to the game played Sunday, there was excitement aplenty. It was a free-hitting game such as we all like, both teams making more hits and runs than they ever did playing together before…then, sorrowful to relate, the Stars won the game in the ninth on a single and some raw fielding

and bunched errors. This put three runs over for them and except for a big scare in Stanley’s half wound up the game.


Carsten Olson Hauge was born at Tune Sogn in Nortway, June 28, 1854 and died at Luther hospital in Eau Claire May 25, 1911. The funeral services were conducted from the U.L. church in this city, Thursday afternoon, May 30, 1911. He is survived by his widow, Sophia Christianson and by four children, Mrs. Chas. L. Solie, Mrs. P. E. Moen. Einar C. and Victor Olson. One son, Charles Oscar, died in 1895 at the age of 16 years.

120 Years Ago May 25, 1901 (Continued from last week) …Another feature adopted by Supt. Davies and approved by the Board of Education this year, is the charging of a small admission fee of 10 and 15 cents and the selling of reserved seats to pay expenses.

The Opera House affords seating room for the average adult audience which assembles there, but last year, fully half of the seats were occupied by children who had no comprehension of the exercises and who caused noise and confusion which greatly marred the beauty and impressiveness of the exercises.
