First and Foremost!

Stanley giving its geese away Committee also learns that Mahr won’t be able to take over deer park Want some geese? The City of Stanley wants to get rid of some.

These aren't the flocks of geese that descend upon Chapman Lake each summer, creating a nuisance. These are nine domesticated geese that are fenced in the deer park.

At a parks committee meeting prior to the Stanley City Council meeting Monday night, chairman Norm Christianson asked the opinion of others around the able.

“I think we should get rid of them,” said Carl Edwardson.

“There’s enough geese to be seen in Chapman,” said Mayor Jankoski.

During a presentation at the last council meeting by Dean Mahr, who had hoped to take over the city’s deer park and raise trophy whitetails, city officials were warned that the domestic geese create problems for the deer, because their waste can get mixed in with the feed.

The consensus was unanimous to give the geese away.

40 years ago March 18, 1982 City Council Takes First Step On Road To Land Acqui sition Appraisals Now Needed, Negotiation Period Begins With the approval of the land relocation order Tuesday night, the Stanley City Coun- cil has taken the first step to ward the acquisition of land needed to build the proposed aerated lagoon system.

The relocation order is the first step in what could be a lengthy proce3ss. And the issue became more confused after an erroneous report in the Wednesday, March 10 issue of the Chippewa Herald-Telegram.

The headline read “City of Stanley reaches out to condemn 55 acres of farmland for waste lagoon,” and the story said, in part, “The Stanley City Council voted 5 – 0 in a special session Tuesday to condemn approximately 55 acres of the John and Dorothy Wozniak farm in the town of Edson.

“They never should have gone that far," said Mayor Les Janisewski. “We didn’t vote to condemn the land.”

Lester Johnson called the Republican to say that the Department of the Interior had given permission for the bird to be returned to the high school Later, a telegram from Rep. Henry S. Reuss con- firmed the action. Rep. Reuss' wire, addressed to the editor of the Republican, said “Delighted to report that Department of Interior has agreed promptly to return bald eagle to Stanley high school. Thank you for patriotic cooperation in enabling me to help you.”

The bird, obtained for the SHS display in what was believed to be an entirely legal manner, was confiscated late last month by Lyman Reyn oldsen, an agent of the federal fish and wildlife service under the strict laws applying to the “American Emblem bird.”

70 years ago March 13, 1952 Plan 'Living Memorial' in Earl Maves’ honor Plans for a ‘living memorial here, in honor and memory of Earl Maves, who died Monday morning at Eau Claire of Hodgkin’s Disease, were announced by Mel Steivang, president of a Maves Memorial Fund committee, which was organized organized Tuesday night, on the eve of Maves’ funeral here.

Steivang, high school classmate and close friend of the “Stanley Steamer”,” said that it is hoped that enough contributions will be received to build an Earl Maves Memorial Pavillion at Chapman Park here – where Maves served as recreational director one summer, and he participated in organized city baseball activities in recent years.

The group decided on the memorial pavilion plan as the primary objective because of its utility, its need, its benefits to both Stanley citizens and people throughout the area.

The ‘Game Is Over’ For Earl Maves Death scored the final touchdown in the battel for life so valiantly waged by Earl Maves, during his two-year illness with Hodgkin’s disease. The former University of Wisconsin fullback died at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire, Monday, at 9:30 a.m.

The rare courage displayed by Maves during his illness was typical of the man. That courage, coupled with an in- nate fitness and a modest, friendly demeanor, made him the much-loved hero in his athletic days, and the tragedy of his untimely death brought forth expressions of sympathy from near and far.

(Funeral at First Presbyterian, burial in Oakland Cemetery. Survived by wife Claudia, his parents Mr. and Mrs. Emil Maves, and two sisters, Sharon of Stanley and Mrs. Lionel (Margery) Strand, of Hixton).
