Serving Columbus and Fall River

SATURDAY, APRIL 2, 2016 | www.wiscnews.com/columbusjournal


A huge crowd turned out for the Columbus Rec Department’s annual Easter
egg hunt and children’s activities at Fireman’s Park last Saturday. The snow
had melted just in time for the egg hunt to be held outdoors as planned.
Other highlights included games and prizes, crafts, pony rides and a visit
from Doodlebug the Clown. For more pictures, see Page 9.

City buys Countryside property for future fire station
Columbus Journal

Two years after beginning his
quest to find a new home for the
Columbus Fire Department, Chief
Randy Koehn finally has something to celebrate.
The Columbus City Council
agreed to make an offer to purchase the 3.25-acre Countryside
Ford property at 1149 W. James St.



Volume 161, Issue 17

for $700,000, for future development as a fire station.
“I couldn’t be happier that the
city is considering making the
purchase,” Koehn said.
Mayor Kelly Crombie said there
are no imminent plans for the new
“That’s a whole separate process from securing land,” he said.
Countryside Ford plans to move


to a new, yet-to-be-built site on
the west side of the city.
Koehn and city officials looked
at eight different sites, before
settling on Countryside’s James
Street property.
“To me, of all the ones we’ve
looked at, it’s the most ideal location,” Koehn said. “It’s the most
centrally located of the eight sites we
looked at, it’s right on the main thor-

oughfare, it’s close to the center interchange of the three interchanges
of the city, so it’s easy access for us to
get out to wherever we need to go.”
The current station, built in
1974, has no off-street parking
and is too small for everything it
houses today, Koehn said.
“We have two doors in front and
one to the rear, so we have trucks
that are blocked in that we can’t

even get them out the back door if
something happens to the vehicle
in front,” he said.
There is at most four feet of
space between trucks in the current station, and the lockers are

Sidewalks vs.
trees debate
Charles Street
residents protest
council decision
Columbus Journal‌

Residents who own

homes on the south and
east sides of Charles Street
turned out at the Columbus City Council meeting
Monday to voice their opposition to the city’s plan
to uproot mature trees and
put in sidewalks as part of a
street reconstruction project this summer.
“I graduated from Columbus High School 60
years ago, and at that
time it was already known
that South Charles Street
was the prettiest street in
town, and it sure won’t be
the prettiest street in town
if you take 20 trees down,”
said Roger Haag, who lives
at 647 W. Charles St. and
was one of six residents to
complain about the council’s decision to add sidewalks in the old neighborhood.
The group also presented
a petition to the council,
stating its opposition to
the sidewalks.
awarded a contract for the
overall street construction project and an alternate bid for the addition
of sidewalks on Charles
Street at a meeting March
14. Council members were
not able to take any action
on the issue on Monday,
as it was not listed on the
agenda, but they discussed
their options when the
Committee of the Whole
met afterward.
City engineer Jason
Lietha and city attorney
Paul Johnson both advised
the council that if they
wanted to revisit the decision, they should do so
sooner rather than later.
The contract with the contractor, A1-Excavating of
Bloomer, has already been
written up and, except for
a few signatures, is ready
to go.

In order to keep the project on schedule, Lietha and
Johnson recommended
that the council continue
to move forward with the
current contract and, if it
decides to drop the Charles
Street sidewalks, to deal
with that as a change order.
Lietha said he could
also talk to the contractor, which had originally
planned to start the project with the Charles Street
portion of it, about changing the sequence that the
work is done, in order to
give the council time to
make a decision.
Aldermen Rick Royem,
who represents District
1, where Charles Street is
located, and District 2 Alderman Rod Melotte both
spoke in favor of rescinding
the previous decision.
Alderman Regan Rule,
who also represents District 1, said he was a little
frustrated by the process.
“I was under the impression that there was going
to be time to pull that alternate bid out,” he said.
“That’s partly why I supported this idea going forward.”
At least one council
member is opposed to
reversing course — but
he won’t be voting on the
issue. District 3 Alderman
Michael Clark, whose
term will come to an
end next week and is not
running for re-election,
said this was the council’s chance to enforce a
uniform sidewalk policy
across the city.
“Part of our job is to
make decisions that are
right for the city, and
sometimes you’re going to
be at odds with some of the
constituents,” he said.
The council is expected
to take up the issue at its
next meeting, scheduled
for April 19.
In a related matter, the
council set a date for a
public hearing on the special assessments for the
2016 street improvements
for 6:30 p.m. on Monday,
May 2.

Mystery author at April 21 Books & Beer
For its one-year anni‌
versary the Books & Beer
monthly gathering is
pleased to welcome bestselling mystery author
DeSmet to
on April 21
at 7 p.m. at
the Black
Kettle, 139
Ludington St.
DeSmet will
talk about
“ F i ve Alarm Fudge,” the latest
novel in her Fudge Shop
Mystery series set in Door
“Five-Alarm Fudge” is
set in the fictional town
of Fishers’ Harbor, Wis-

consin, where fudge shop
owner Ava Oosterling is
busy preparing for the harvest festival and a visit from
some royal relatives who
live in Belgium. According
to Ava’s grandpa, a famous
divinity fudge recipe from
the 1860s is hidden somewhere in a local historical
church — a treat fit for a
prince. But when a fire in
the church reveals the body
of a murdered man, it looks
like someone is willing to go
to any length to possess the
valuable secret to the divinity fudge. As Ava searches
for the killer — and the
recipe — she could use a
little divine intervention,
because she may have bitten off more than she can
chew …

In addition to writing
mysteries, DeSmet is the
author of an award-winning, romantic suspense
novel “Spirit Lake” as well
as a number of short
scripts and
stage plays.
She teaches
writing in
Continuing Studies division
of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where
she’s the director of the
annual “Write-by-theLake Writer’s Workshop
& Retreat” and “Weekend
with Your Novel.” You can

Road construction around the corner


omeone, somewhere at some
point in time said, “In Wisconsin, we don’t have four
seasons, but two: winter and
road construction season.” One
of the things I love
about our state
is the distinct
change in seasons,
but I can’t argue
with the honesty
of that sentiment.
In Columbus,
been spared the
harshness of the
past couple of
winters, but road construction
is coming full force. As I shared
in this column last fall, the city
will be updating street and utility infrastructure in 2016. The
2016 Street Project list includes:
Mill Street (from Lewis Street

to Ludington Street); two areas
of Charles Street (Dix Street to
Richmond Street; then ½ block
of Selden to a ½ block of Fountain to connect work already
done there in recent years); West
Prairie Street (from Ludington
Street to Dickason Boulevard);
West Church Street (North
Dickason Boulevard to Ludington Street) and North Birdsey
(James Street to Mill Street).
With such a long list of streets
to be address, the key where
and when you’ll see activity will
be what order or approach the
construction contractor will
take with the project. This week
I sat in on the “pre-construction” meeting with representatives from the contractor on the
project, A-1 Excavating out of
Bloomer, Wisconsin, as well as
personnel from various utilities

and City/Columbus Water &
Light staff. A main focus of the
meeting was to talk about the
schedule. You should be seeing
work beginning this coming
Monday, April 4. As of now, the
workers will begin on Charles
Street, but will also make their
presence on Church Street and
Prairie Street in April. In May,
they will start on Mill Street,
and finally will get to Birdsey in
July. Each street will take varying lengths of time to complete
(the Mill Street piece is considerably longer than the rest), but
all is expected to be finished up
in late September or early October. The weather will play a vital
role in how the actual schedule
plays out.
The city intends to be vigilant
on updating the community on
that schedule and informing

of Columbus website: www.
cityofcolumbuswi.com. On the
front page, there is a link that
says, “Street Projects.” Click that
and be sent to another page with
information on the 2016 street
project, and next year’s 2017
James Street project.
Again, the presence of dump
trucks, jackhammers and orange
barrels may create some annoyances, but the end result begins
to address critical needs for our
city. The team at City Hall and I
stand by to do our best to get us
through “Orange Barrel Season.”
If you have any questions on
this or any other issue before city
government, please contact me
down at City Hall at 623-5900
or via email at pvandersanden@

Legal Notice
Notice of Spring Election and
Presidential Preference Vote
and Sample Ballots
April 5, 2016
Notice is hereby given of a spring
election and a Presidential Preference
Vote to be held in Columbia County
on April 5, 2016, at which the officers
named below shall be chosen. The
names of the candidates for each office
to be voted for, whose nominations have
been certified to or filed in this office,
are given under the title of the office,
each in its proper column, together with
the questions submitted to a vote, for a
referendum, if any, in the sample ballot
Upon entering the polling place, a
voter shall state his or her name and
address, show an acceptable form of
photo identification and sign the poll
book before being permitted to vote. If
a voter is not registered to vote, a voter
may register to vote at the polling place
serving his or her residence, if the voter
presents proof of residence in a form
specified by law. Where ballots are
distributed to voters, the initials of two
inspectors must appear on the ballot.
Upon being permitted to vote, the voter
shall retire alone to a voting booth and
cast his or her ballot, except that a voter
who is a parent or guardian may be
accompanied by the voter’s minor child
or minor ward. An election official may
inform the voter of the proper manner
for casting a vote, but the official may
not in any manner advise or indicate a
particular voting choice.
Where Optical Scan Voting is Used
The voter shall fill in the oval next to the
name of the candidate of his or her choice
for each office for which he or she intends
to vote. To vote for a person whose name
does not appear on the ballot, the voter
shall write in the name of the person of
his or her choice in the space provided,
and fill in the oval next to the write-in line.
On referendum questions, the voter shall
fill in the oval next to “yes” if in favor of
the question, or fill in the oval next to “no”
if opposed to the question.
When using an electronic ballot marking
device (“Automark”) to mark an optical
scan ballot, the voter shall touch the
screen at the name of the candidate of
his or her choice for each office for which
he or she intends to vote. To vote for a
person whose name does not appear
on the ballot, the voter shall type in the
name of the person of his or her choice
in the space provided for a write-in vote.
On referendum questions, the voter shall
touch the screen at “yes” if in favor of
the question, or the voter shall touch the
screen at “no” if opposed to the question.
Where Optical Scan Voting is Used
Within the party of his or her choice, the
voter shall fill in the oval next to the name
of the candidate of his or her choice or
shall, in the alternative, fill in the oval next
to the words “Uninstructed Delegation,”
or write in the name of a person of his or
her choice for a candidate in the space
provided for a write-in vote and fill in the
oval next to the write-in line.
When using an electronic ballot marking
device (“Automark”) to mark an optical
scan ballot, the voter shall touch the
screen at the party of his or her choice.
Within the party of his or her choice,
the voter shall then touch the screen at
the name of the candidate of his or her
choice or shall, in the alternative, touch
the screen at the words “Uninstructed
Delegation,” or type in the name of a
person of his or her choice in the space
provided for a write-in vote.
A voter may cast only one vote in the
presidential preference primary.
The vote shall not be cast in any other
manner. Not more than five minutes’
time shall be allowed inside a voting
booth. Sample ballots or other materials
to assist the voter in marking his or her
ballot may be taken into the booth and
copied. The sample ballot shall not be
shown to anyone so as to reveal how the
ballot is marked.
If a voter spoils an optical scan ballot,
he or she shall return it to an election
official who shall issue another ballot
in its place, but not more than three
ballots shall be issued to any one voter.
If the ballot has not been initialed by
two inspectors or is defective in any
other way, the voter shall return it to the
election official who shall issue a proper
ballot in its place.
After Voting the Ballot
After an official optical scan ballot
is marked, it shall be inserted in the
security sleeve so the marks do not
show. After casting his or her vote, the
voter shall insert the ballot in the voting
device and return the sleeve to the
designated location, or deposit the ballot

residents (particularly those
who are seeing work in front of
their properties) of key events
and timelines with the project. A
large road construction project
inevitably brings frustration and
inconvenience to those near it,
but with clear and concise communication, we can do our best
to manage it.
When the plans for the project
were first shared at a public information meeting back in January, I asked those in attendance
to share their email addresses
so that I could personally email
the group on information and
developments with the project. If
you are interested in seeing these
email updates, please email me at
so you can be put on the list too.
Another source of information
relative to the project is the city

in the ballot box, or deliver the ballot to
an inspector for deposit. The voter shall
leave the polling place promptly.
A voter may select an individual to assist in
casting his or her vote if the voter declares
to the presiding official that he or she is
unable to read, has difficulty reading,
writing, or understanding English, or that
due to disability is unable to cast his or her
ballot. The selected individual rendering
assistance may not be the voter’s
employer or an agent of that employer or
an officer or agent of a labor organization
which represents the voter.

Workshop artist gets
creative with ‘Leftovers’
The Workshop welcomes
Tina Lainberger and her show
“Leftovers” to the gallery for the
months of March and April. An
artist’s reception will be held
on Saturday, April 9 from 4 to
7 p.m. to celebrate Lainberger’s
show. The artist reception is a
free event. The show is titled
“Leftovers” because many of the
pieces were made using leftovers
from other projects Lainberger
was working on. If you would
like to make your own “leftover”
art at this time there is a $5 project fee. Work on an 8 x 10-inch
canvas or board to create a oneof-a-kind project in the style of
Lainberger’s work.
At Teen Night on Saturday,
April 9, the guided project will
be printmaking. Participants
will learn how to carve and print
a linoleum block, along with the
basics of monoprinting. Teens
can follow along with the guided
project or create a project of their
own design. The class will be held
from 7 to 9 p.m. The class fee is
$15 or 2 for $25. Ages 12-18 years.
Whimsical Wind Chimes is
the Exploring Creativity class
for the week on Thursday, April
7 and Friday, April 8 from 3:30 to
5 p.m. In this fun class children
will create a one-of-a-kind wind
chime. They will paint the top
portion of the projects, pound
and texture the chimes and add
beads to decorate. The cost is $12
or one punch on a six-class pass.
Open Studio times at The
Workshop are Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to noon and 3:30 to
5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to noon;

Tina Lainberger’s art will be

from other projects.

If we keep our eyes on Jesus
at all times, it will help to keep
us from being distracted by the
ways of the world. Modern technology is wonderful, but Jesus
is even more wonderful and
teaches us to love one another by
the things we say and the things
we do. So let’s always keep our
eyes on that which is most important.
