JANESVILLE — Irish culture and heritage will take center stage next weekend during Janesville Irish Fest. The festival, in its second year, will be held Thursday through Sunday, Oct. 2 through Oct. 5, at various locations throughout Janesville. The festivities begin from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, with the Piper’s Ball, which will be held at the Janesville Performing Arts Center, 408 S. Main St. The ball will include an opening ceremony, food, drinks, raffle drawings and music by Borderlands. There also will be a CD release party, featuring music from local artists. “We are doing a commemorative CD for Irish Fest with local bands,” said Dan Fredricks, cochair for the Irish Fest Committee. “The nine acts that contributed a song will come that night and play their songs.” The Irish Family Reunion will be held from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 3, at the Pontiac Convention Center, 2809 N. Pontiac Drive in Janesville, and will include an Irish buffet, costume contest and music from Tallymoore. The Rock County
Dancers share a slice of culture during last year’s Janesville Irish Fest. You can catch some Irish dancing at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, in downtown Janesville or from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, during a pancake breakfast at Rotary Botanical Gardens. Find more festival details at JanesvilleIrishFest.com. Historical Society will offer free genealogy research assistance and have members of local Irish families sharing their stories about Ireland. “There will be 13 Irishmen on stage telling stories and jokes about Ireland, including the Ryans, Fitzgeralds, Sheridans and Cullens, so that will be a lot of fun,” Fredricks said. Several activities will be held in
downtown Janesville on Saturday, Oct. 4, including the Leprechaun Run/Walk with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. in the municipal parking lot at 20 W. Main St. The Irish Hooley will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring nine bands performing on three stages in downtown Janesville. Gray Brewery Co., 2424 W. Court St., will be offering tours, and Blackhawk Credit Union will be
hosting a family picnic with Irish entertainment. Gaelic Storm will make a return appearance to Janesville at 7:30 p.m. at the Janesville Performing Arts Center. The festival continues on Sunday with Irish dancers and a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Rotary Botanical

IN BRIEF JANESVILLE ■ Kmart will close in December: The Kmart store at Milton Avenue and U.S. Highway 14 in Janesville is set to close in December. A liquidation sale is scheduled to begin Sunday, Sept. 28. About 70 part-time and hourly employees are expected to lose their jobs. Eligible employees will receive severance and will have the opportunity to apply for jobs at area Kmart or Sears stores. The Kmart store has been open since 1968. A second Kmart store opened on Janesville’s south side in 1981 but closed in 1990. ■ City man allegedly shot at ex-girlfriend: A 37-year-old Janesville man has been charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety and false imprisonment after allegedly shooting at his ex-girlfriend. Police responded to the 1100 block of Hoover Street for a report of two intruders being held at gunpoint in the backyard. When officers arrived, they learned that the intruders were two women who came to confront the man over the fact that he was in a relationship with both of them at the same time. Police said they determined the man had ordered the women to the ground behind his home and fired a shot from a semi-automatic handgun at one of them. The women were not injured during the incident. ■ Body discovered in car fire: A woman’s body was found in a burned vehicle on Tuesday, Sept. 23. About 9:23 a.m., Janesville police officers responded to a vehicle fire at Arbor Ridge Drive and Silver Maple Trace. Janesville Water Department employees noticed smoke coming from the area and located a vehicle engulfed in flames. The Janesville Fire Department responded to the scene and extinguished the flames. Firefighters then discovered a female’s body in the back seat. The body had not been identified and the incident was under investigation at press time.

A SECOND CHANCE Change of pace suits former racehorse and his therapy riders BY IAN GRONAU STAFF
LINTON — The racehorse known as He’s So Hot was on track for a stunning career until an injury put a sudden stop to his racing days. The Standardbred gelding was born in Illinois to a proud lineage, the offspring of prized horses Sportsmaster and She’s Redhot. He’s So Hot was purchased in 2009 and trained for harness racing by the DeLong family of Clinton and had all the makings of a future champion. At the height of his career in 2010, the then 2-year-old racehorse had earned $70,500 at the Mini Me Final at Balmoral Park in Crete, Illinois; $22,500 at the Governor’s Cup at Du Quoin, Illinois; $60,350 at the Cardinal Final at Maywood Park in Melrose Park, Illinois, and finished second in the $127,000 American-National Final at Balmoral Park. But after his injury, and despite concerted efforts by the DeLongs and their trainers, He’s So Hot’s career as a racehorse was officially over. But his career, it turns out, was not. In much the same way hundreds of individuals with special needs find hope at S.M.I.L.E.S. in the town of Darien, He’s So Hot, now 6 years old, found purpose, belonging and a new job. “He was a very successful pacer for Bo DeLong for a few years before he got injured and was unable to return to racing,” said Katey McClymont, an instructor at S.M.I.L.E.S. “Luckily for me, at the time I’d been working with the DeLongs over at their barn on the weekends, so I got to know him through that whole process of healing and trying to get him back into racing. When he was unable to go back we started discussing other options for him, and that’s when S.M.I.L.E.S. came up.” S.M.I.L.E.S., an equineassisted therapy program, has transcended traditional therapeutic methods by offering individuals with special needs the joy of participating in horsemanship activities for almost 30 years. The nonprofit program provides social, emotional, physical and personal rewards to its clients. As fate would have it, McClymont, who had been working with S.M.I.L.E.S. and the DeLongs at the time, brokered a donation between the two, giving He’s So Hot a new lease on life and S.M.I.L.E.S. a
Faith Bonney, 9, of Janesville, rides the former racehorse He’s So Hot, now known as Del, with program coordinator Katie Boss. The horse began a new career at the S.M.I.L.E.S. therapeutic riding program after injury cut his successful racing career short. terrific addition to its team. Bo DeLong and McClymont could see the horse’s potential for the work. “He’s very calm, and he loves people,” DeLong said. “He’s very nice to be around, he has a lot of common sense and he doesn’t get nervous. Also he’s not a very big or tall horse and he doesn’t bite or have any bad habits like that. So really he was perfect for this kind of work.” McClymont agreed that He’s So Hot’s temperament makes him ideal for work at S.M.I.L.E.S. and finds that his calmness occasionally surprises clients. “The clients are sometimes surprised I think,” McClymont said. “We try to get the new students excited by telling them that he used to be a racehorse and we show them his racehorse brand and all that, but once they get on and ride they find out that he’s actually really calm and mild mannered.” It took a considerable amount of re-training once He’s So Hot arrived. Starting last year around this time, McClymont and other trainers put the horse through all exercises necessary, and after a short time he passed all of the requisite tests and his trial period with S.M.I.L.E.S. and is now an official member of its team. In addition to the new job, he also sports a new name. Because staff felt that the clients of S.M.I.L.E.S. could be easily confused by the literal meaning of He’s So Hot, a barn name was chosen to help the riders identify and communicate with their new therapy partner. Trainers chose the name Del to honor and to recognize the DeLongs. By all accounts, Del has taken to the work quite nicely. Gay Stran, S.M.I.L.E.S. executive director, also credits
the horse’s calm demeanor for his success. Stran, who is the mother of a former client, knows firsthand just how beneficial working with a horse of Del’s caliber can be for a person with special needs. “Horsemanship is a very athletic activity and obviously there are very physical benefits to it and those are some of the same benefits that our clients are looking for,” Stran said. “They can see increased posture and improved balance, core strength and muscular strengthening or flexibility as well. In addition to that, our clients are in a therapeutic environment that is enjoyable, motivating, recreational and social. The benefits are multifaceted.” Faith Bonney of Janesville, who turned 9 last weekend, is one of the many riders already enjoying her time with Del. Bonney has been a client of S.M.I.L.E.S for two years through the Wisconsin Center for the Blind and Visually
Impaired in Janesville, and her father, Andrew Bonney, said that she always is smiling at S.M.I.L.E.S. “She loves being with the horses; it really helps her develop her sense of control and command,” Andrew Bonney said. “It also really helps her socially. She always opens up afterward and tells me all about it. She’s made friends with the trainers there and also enjoys riding with one of the kids from the school that she goes there with.” If you ask DeLong, he couldn’t be happier how things worked out for Del. Even though he can’t race, the DeLong family takes comfort in the fact that Del is helping people. “It’s the best that we could have hoped for him,” DeLong said. “Not only does he help out S.M.I.L.E.S., but S.M.I.L.E.S. is good to him. He’s got a good home, he’s taken care of and he is able to help people and make a difference. We’re very happy with that.”

Tuck pointing work recently was completed at the chapel at Oakhill Cemetery in Janesville. Apprentices from throughout the state worked with volunteer bricklayers on the project. Some apprentices came from as far as Rice Lake, La Crosse and Madison to work on the chapel. Earlier in the year, Friends of Oakhill Chapel raised enough money and received approval from the Janesville City Council to restore the chapel. The first phase of the project is about 80 percent complete.

JANESVILLE — Mercy Health System, the Janesville police and fire departments and the Janesville School District have teamed up to provide life-saving Casualty Care Classroom Kits and related training to all teachers in the Janesville School District. Training begins this fall. The Casualty Care in the Classroom Task Force was formed in January in response to an active shooter tabletop drill mediated by the FBI last winter with participants from all city services and other local agencies. “While we never want to see it happen, we must be prepared for mass casualties created by criminal activity and natural disasters,” Yolanda Cargile, director of student services for the Janesville
School District, said in a news release. “These kits will help our teachers render aid to injured students while sheltering in place.” Sgt. Mike Blaser, SWAT assistant team leader with the Janesville Police Department, emphasizes the importance of teacher first aid training. “When we respond to a mass casualty incident, our priority is a rapid and aggressive response to locating and stopping criminal threats,” Blaser said. “Until we’ve assessed the situation and secured a safe environment — which could take up to a halfhour — teachers and students must remain in the classroom without professional medical assistance.” In cases of bleeding, time is of the essence. “Rapid blood loss can lead to

We want our teachers to feel confident in hemorrhage control,” said Christopher Wistrom, emergency medicine physician and associate emergency medical services medical director for Mercy Health System. “Training them to be confident on-site first responders can buy time, and potentially save lives, until EMTs or paramedics can safely reach the classroom.” Casualty Care Classroom Kits include an information card and hemorrhage control supplies. Mercy Health System supplies the bags and information cards and purchases kit supplies at cost. Mercy physicians, along with members of the Janesville Police Department and Janesville Fire Department, serve as trainers.

Use these strategies to help your retirement investments weather ups and downs Investors are aware that the financial markets always move up and down. During your working years, you may feel that you have time to overcome this volatility. And you’d be basing these feelings on actual evidence: The longer the investment period, the greater the tendency of the markets to “smooth out” their performance. But what happens when you retire? Won’t you be more susceptible to market movements? You may not be as vulnerable as you might think. In the first place, given our growing awareness of healthier lifestyles, you could easily spend two, or even three, decades in retirement — so your investment time frame isn’t necessarily going to be that compressed. Nonetheless, it’s still true that time may well be a more important consideration to you during your retirement years, so you may want to be particularly vigilant about

taking steps to help smooth out the effects of market volatility. ■ Allocate your investments among a variety of asset classes. Proper asset allocation is a good investment move at any age, but when you’re retired, you want to be especially careful that you don’t overconcentrate your investment dollars among just a few assets. Spreading your money among a range of vehicles — stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, government securities and so on — can help you avoid taking the full brunt of a downturn that may hit

just one type of investment. ■ Be sure to choose investments that have demonstrated solid performance across market cycles. As you’ve probably heard, past performance is no guarantee of future results. Nonetheless, you can help improve your outlook by owning quality investments. So when investing in stocks, choose those that have actual earnings and a track record of earnings growth. If you invest in fixed-income vehicles, pick those that are considered investment grade. ■ Don’t make emotional decisions. At various times during your retirement, you will, in all likelihood, witness sharp drops in the market. Try to avoid overreacting to these downturns, which probably will be normal market corrections. If you can keep your emotions out of investing, you will be less likely to make moves such as selling quality investments merely because their
price is temporarily down. ■ Don’t try to time the market. You may be tempted to take advantage of volatility by looking for opportunities to buy low and sell high. In theory, this is a fine idea — but unfortunately, no one can really predict market highs or lows. You’ll probably be better off by consistently investing the same amount of money into the same investments. Over time, this method of investing may result in lower per-share costs. However, as is the case with diversification, this type of systematic investing won’t guarantee results; you’ll need to be willing to keep investing when share prices are declining.

Evaluations will be based on a number of factors including SAT or ACT scores, class rank, grade point average, school records, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, motivation, recommendations and interviews. “The academies are known for providing a top-quality education as well as preparing graduates for leadership in both military and civilian life,” Ryan said in a news release. “Young people who want to study hard and serve our country should consider applying to a U.S. service academy.” All applicants to a U.S. service academy must have a nomination from an authorized nominating source. Members of Congress can nominate candidates, as can the president, the vice president and the secretaries of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

YOUR VIEWS D AVID H AYNES YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW
Openness would deter misdeeds When state employees misbehave, does the public have a right to know who they are? Two state agencies are answering that question in different ways. Both the state Department of Justice and Department of Natural Resources have in the recent past blacked out the names of state workers from records of disciplinary actions released to the media. The agencies claimed the public interest was “sufficiently served” by releasing these redacted records. The jousting began in 2013 when The Associated Press requested disciplinary records for DOJ employees. The agency released the records but not the names. Earlier this year, the AP made a similar request to the DNR and received a similar result. But the DNR has had a change of heart. In late August, after an open-records request by the Lakeland Times of Minocqua, the agency released the names of management and law enforcement employees disciplined in 2013 and those engaged in “more serious misconduct.” It has since signaled plans to release the rest. The Justice Department, though, stands by its decision to withhold the names of employees found to be breaking the rules. “When a disciplined employee’s name is not released, the public is still informed about what the discipline was and why it was imposed,” said DOJ spokeswoman Dana Brueck. The released information, she continued, “allows the public to see that its government is holding line staff employees accountable for their actions and taking steps to correct those situations, without stigmatizing the employees for minor violations.” In its February 2013 letter to the AP, the Justice Department said none of the disciplined workers was “highly placed,” all were cited for work rule violations and that publicizing their names “would embarrass them” and be “counterproductive” in persuading employees to correct their behavior. The letter also claimed that supervisors would be less likely to mete out discipline if the names of employees were routinely released. I’m not convinced. First of all, rank shouldn’t matter. Whether the workers are line workers or top management, the same rules should apply. And even minor work rule violations can have a serious impact on morale, especially if there is a pattern of abuse. Without the names, it is harder for the public to know about patterns of conduct — or if the state responded promptly and fairly. I’m no advocate of public shaming, but knowing there is a possibility your name will become public might be a deterrent to bad behavior. And as for supervisors who are reluctant to discipline employees for fear of disclosure, I’d argue that management is no place for the faint-hearted. Finally, working in the public eye always has meant giving up a small amount of privacy. Current state law requires a “balancing test” to determine whether information can be shared with the public. The test begins with a strong presumption of openness that must be weighed against arguments favoring secrecy. In a 2006 decision, Kroeplin vs. DNR, a state appeals court ruled against a conservation warden who tried to keep his disciplinary record secret. The court concluded “the public’s strong interest in accessing these records is not outweighed in any way by the reasons offered by the DNR for preventing disclosure.” The DOJ, which cited the Kroeplin case in its letter to the AP, seems to have relied on a narrow reading of the case while ignoring its overriding theme: openness trumps secrecy. This could all be simpler. State law could require that every public worker who is disciplined be named. That might deter misbehavior. It certainly would guarantee a better informed public.
This could all be simpler. State law could require that every public worker who is disciplined be named.

Clear choice in race for governor To the editor, Democrats continue to repeat debunked talking points. The Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which was repealed, never was used in Wisconsin for a lawsuit. The state still has a Fair Employment Act and federal protections. The 2009 law was a duplicative law that the left is using to scare women. The left distorts the truth to win elections. A severe budget shortfall is not looming. Gov. Scott Walker paid
off the $3.6 billion deficit Gov. Jim Doyle and Mary Burke left us. Republicans provided $2 billion in tax relief for middle class families through property tax and income tax cuts. Compare that to the ever-increasing taxes under Doyle/Burke that still left us with unprecedented debt. The left’s claim that voter ID laws and stand-your-ground laws are racist have been disproven. Examples in Tennessee, Texas, Indiana and Georgia show that black turnout increased after voter ID laws were implemented. The left’s ruse of “racism” and “voter suppression” is a continuous attempt to ensure we do not
improve the security of our election process. What is the left afraid of? The charge that Republicans prevent women from making their own health decisions? How is the left’s radical abortion agenda empowering for women or the children that abortion kills? When Democrats controlled the legislature in 2009, they passed the largest tax increase in state history, totaling more than $3 billion. Republicans lowered taxes by $2 billion. Property taxes will be lower in 2014 than they were in 2010. The choice is clear. Mike Hanus Milton
Study analyzes Wisconsin’s competitive position MADISON — As schools open and thoughts return to tests and grades, the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance, or WISTAX, has released the only “report card” that annually benchmarks the state’s performance. Among the report’s findings, employment has grown steadily since 2010 and the unemployment rate is down about two points since peaking in 2009. WISTAX is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to public policy research and citizen education since 1932. On other economic measures, the WISTAX report notes that: • Wisconsin manufacturing jobs as a share of total employment increased for the third straight year, reaching 16.4 percent in 2013. That figure was still 0.8 points below pre-recession levels. • For the five years ending in 2013, per capita personal income growth has outpaced the U.S. (11.4 percent vs. 9 percent) and closed the gap by which the state has long trailed the U.S. to 3.1 percent ($43,149 vs. $44,543). • Private firm creation was up 1.1 percent in 2012 after growing 1.6 percent in 2011, the first back-to-back years of increase since 2004-’05. The number of private businesses now equal levels reported five years earlier. These economic indicators are among 33 performance measures contained in Measuring Success: Benchmarks for a Competitive Wisconsin (Benchmarks), the only assessment of the state’s competitive position. WISTAX has prepared the report card

annually for Competitive Wisconsin Inc. since 1998. Competitive Wisconsin Inc. is a nonpartisan consortium of statewide leaders on business, labor, education and agriculture. Other trends examined in Benchmarks compare workforce excellence, quality of life, business climate, government performance and environmental conditions with surrounding states and the nation. On workforce excellence, WISTAX found that: • High school graduation rates for entering ninth-graders are higher here (86.2 percent) than nationally (70.1 percent) and surpass rates in all four surrounding states. • Wisconsin produces more PhDs per million residents in science, technology, engineering and math than the country (88 vs. 79.6) and Minnesota. However, it trails Illinois and Michigan slightly and Iowa (125.2) by a larger margin. • Average college entrance exam scores reported for 2013 are about 7 percent higher here than nationally. Quality of life has long been a

competitive advantage for the Badger state, and on many of the relevant measures that remains true: • Health insurance coverage remains higher in Wisconsin than in the U.S. and in the region (save Minnesota). • Wisconsin’s violent crime rate per 100,000 residents (281) was well below the U.S., though it was up from 250 in 2011. • Home ownership in Wisconsin remains higher here than the U.S. average (68.5 percent vs. 65.1 percent), but trails Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota. The state’s business climate has long been a part of debate in Wisconsin. The Benchmarks report analyzed this issue, as well: • Capital availability for firm start-ups and expansions has long been a shortcoming. Wisconsin’s disbursement of venture capital in 2013 ($12.75 per worker) was lower than the nation’s ($215.34) and the four surrounding states, where rates ranged from $14.74 per worker in Iowa to $96.85 in Minnesota. • As a share of state output, Wisconsin’s investment in research and development per worker (2.21 percent) lags the nation (2.86 percent) and the surrounding states, except Iowa (2.15 percent). • The number of Wisconsin patents per million residents (436) has increased over the past five years but still trails the U.S. (467), as well as Michigan and Minnesota. Wisconsin has an edge over Illinois and Iowa.

■ IRISH Continued from page 1 Gardens. Members of the Kinsella Academy of Irish Dancers will be performing during the breakfast, and the proceeds will benefit Independent Disability Services and Rotary Botanical Gardens. The Emerald City Children’s Fest will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, at Palmer Park and will include games, prizes, children’s activities and music. “You can start at the pancake breakfast and then go to Palmer Park with the kids and have lots of fun,” Fredricks said. Gaelic Storm closes out the festival with a second Janesville performance at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 5, at JPAC. Several Janesville businesses will be hosting events and activities during the four-day festival. “This year, there’s going to be a lot more to do,” Fredricks said. “The community wants something fun to do, so here’s an opportunity. People will have an opportunity to get outside and participate in fun activities before winter starts.” The Rock County Historical Society will host several activities during Irish Fest, said Michael Reuter, the society’s executive director. “We’re going Reuter to be looking at the genealogy and ancestry of the Irish culture in Janesville,” Reuter said. “We’re going to be showing the documentary ‘Irish in Janesville,’ and we’re going to be offering free genealogy research during the Irish Family Reunion on Friday.” Members of the Irish Fest committee have been working on the event for the better part of the past year, Fredricks said. “We’re meeting more often than before, but ever since last year’s event we had a wrap-up meeting and then we began planning again,” he said. “Now that it’s the second year, it’s a little easier.” Finding and scheduling Irish bands has taken a lot of work, Fredricks said. “We’ve developed a list of area Irish bands in Milwaukee, Madison and Rockford,” he said. “Last year it was a little harder to find out who could play and who we could afford. Now that we have a list and that we’re getting our name out there, a lot of bands are contacting us.” The idea of having an Irish festival really took shape after Gaelic Storm was booked for 2013, Fredricks said. “Once Gaelic Storm got booked, we said, ‘We should have an Irish Fest in Janesville because there’s so many Irish people,’” he said. “So, that’s how that happened.” Response to the festival has been favorable among residents and business owners, Fredricks said. “Venues that held activities were really happy. Basically, all of them came back this year,” he said. “Some of the venues

Reuter said the festival gives residents an opportunity to recognize Janesville’s Irish heritage. “It’s always great when we have the opportunity to promote the rich heritage of Janesville’s culture,” Reuter said. “There’s a strong Irish heritage in Janesville.” For more information about Irish Fest, go online to JanesvilleIrishFest.com.

HOME & LEISURE
Summer and fall fruits are the stars of homemade pies LYNN G REENE LYNN’S PLACE
ccording to the American Pie Council, pie has been around since the ancient Egyptians. The first pies were made by early Romans who may have learned about it through the Greeks. The Romans must have spread the word about pies around Europe as the Oxford English Dictionary notes that the word pie was a popular word in the 14th century. The first pie recipe was published by the Romans and was for a rye-crusted goat cheese and honey pie. The early pies were predominately meat pies. Pyes (pies) originally appeared in England as early as the 12th century. The crust of the pie was referred to as “coffyn,” and actually there was more crust than filling. Often these pies were made using fowl and the legs were left to hang over the side of the dish and used as handles. Think about your old nursery rhymes and you’ll get the picture: “Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye, Four and 20 blackbirds, baked in a pie.” The pocket full of rye was used to attract the blackbirds so they could be caught and cooked. I’d rather think about this rhyme: Little Jack Horner sat in the corner, Eating a Christmas pie; He put in his thumb, and pulled out a plum, and said, “What a good boy am I!” This transition to fruit pies or tarts, also called pasties, probably first occurred in the 1500s. English tradition credits making the first cherry pie to Queen
Elizabeth I. Pie came to America with the first English settlers. The early colonists cooked their pies in long, narrow pans calling them “coffins” like the crust in England. As in the Roman times, the early American pie crusts often were not eaten, but simply designed to hold the filling during baking. It was during the American Revolution that the term crust was used instead of coffyn. First lady Martha Washington included several pie recipes in her personal cookbook called “Martha Washington’s Booke of Cookery.” Author Mark Twain, in his book “A Tramp Abroad,” mentions missing pies, listing “Apple pie ... Peach pie. American mince pie. Pumpkin pie. Squash pie. All sorts of American pastry.” Even though cupcakes have been the big trend lately, even taking the place of wedding cakes, I’m thinking pies will once again be the next big thing. It’s just the best way to cook up fruit in a satisfying dessert. Over the years, pie has evolved to become what it is today. Now, “American as apple pie” is a common expression that we take for granted as being absolutely truthful. And maybe it is, but we had some help getting started. If you need help getting started with your first pie, try a recipe using granulated, quickcooking tapioca as the thickener. I like using this because you need a thickener to keep the fruit pie from being too runny. Flour, cornstarch and tapioca are the thickeners commonly used in fruit pies. Flour gives the filling an opaque appearance, cornstarch gives a clear to almost gel-like appearance. Tapioca is more like cornstarch,
and equal amounts of quickcooking tapioca and cornstarch can be substituted for each other in a fruit pie recipe. When replacing flour in a recipe, use half the amount of cornstarch or use two teaspoons of quick-cooking tapioca for every one tablespoon of flour. When using tapioca, mix it with the filling ingredients and allow the mixture to stand for 15 minutes before proceeding with the recipe. Pick up a box of Minute tapioca and you’ll see a recipe for your favorite fruit pie, with the correct proportions of fruit to sugar to tapioca. Using a prepared crust makes it easy.
❑ CALLING ALL BAKERS: PIE CONTEST
Plum pie — Little Jack Horner would be happy with this pie. 1 lb. plums, sliced 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup Minute tapioca Prepared pie crusts, 2 crusts 1 Tbsp. butter Mix plums with sugar and tapioca in large bowl. Let stand 15 minutes before pouring into prepared 9-inch pie crust. Cut butter into tiny bits and scatter over the filling. Cover with remaining crust; seal and flute edge. Cut several slits in top crust to permit steam to escape. Bake in a preheated 400 F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until crust is nicely browned and filling is bubbling. Let cool before slicing and serving. Lynn Greene is senior editor for CSI Media, which publishes this paper.

Wildflowers, long and short hikes offer something for every participant R USS H ELWIG WEEKLY WALK
n Tuesday, Sept. 16, 10 of us hiked around Lake LaGrange. We had a nice walk, nice views and nice weather. Marvin Herman reports on the Sept. 17 long hike: On a beautiful and sunny late summer day with temperatures in the low 70s, 15 hikers left the U.S. Highway 12 meeting place and regrouped at the Emma Carlin Trails near Palmyra. The group hiked 7.3 miles starting on the Ice Age Trail and then cutting over to Department of Natural Resources headquarters on Wisconsin Highway 59 for a rest stop. Then we walked the adjacent nature trail, the Stony Ridge Ice Age Trail segment and then took the horse trail to Stute Springs and finally along the road back to Emma Carlin parking lot. We saw various plants of the aster family including smooth, heath, sky blue and calico asters. We came upon a Viceroy butterfly
feeding on trace elements in a small pile of animal scat. Later, we saw a leopard frog. Most of the hikers then regrouped for lunch at Edge of Town restaurant in Palmyra, where one or more kayak outings were planned. On Wednesday, Jake Gerlach led a short walk of 3.2 miles on the white ski trail from the Nordic trailhead. Ellen Davis and I were at the end and after a mile or so, after we got out of dense woods, we began getting farther behind as we stopped often to observe and attempt to take photos of butterflies and wildflowers. We observed many varieties of butterflies and were amazed at the number of monarchs we saw near patches of milkweeds. We found several small patches of Japanese hedge parsley along the part of the trail about two-thirds of the way around. This is an invasive plant that spreads by attaching its seed to anything that touches them. The seeds are wheat-berry size and covered with little curved spikes that work like Velcro. They stick so well that they are very difficult to get out of fleece. Afterward, Ellen and I went to
the LaGrange General Store to find that the other short distance hikers already had eaten and left before we arrived. One has to walk slowly and look around to really enjoy the scenery. On the other hand, it is good to walk steady and faster for aerobic exercise on a regular basis. A flower walk was enjoyed by regular hikers Bonnie Nommensen and Lynn Larson, who joined Barb Neumann on the Palmyra-Eagle School District nature trail. Barb had described geocaching and cold caching as a way to get youth outside to enjoy the great outdoors at our Tuesday Ice Age Trail Alliance meeting. Bonnie gives the following report on this walk: Lynn and I had a fantastic time doing our first geocaching with Barb Neumann, who was the speaker at the IAT meeting last night. We decided to visit the closest place to my house, which had five geocaches within a two-mile trail that none of us had ever been on, or were even aware of. It is by Palmyra-Eagle Middle/High School. We came across the most beau-
Japanese hedge parsley is an invasive plant that spreads when its sticky seeds hitch a ride on animals or clothing. tiful gentians we had ever seen — and there were so many of them. Happy trekking, Russ

JANESVILLE MESSENGER ■ Sunday, September 28, 2014
UW-W WELCOMES NEW CLASS TO HALL OF FAME The University of WisconsinWhitewater will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its athletic Hall of Fame with recognition of a golden group of nine. Activities will be Saturday, Oct. 4. A tailgate, open to the public (food not included), will start at 11 a.m. at the Coulthart Pavilion. The 2014 class will be introduced at halftime of the Warhawks’ game against UW-La Crosse. The reception begins at 4:30 p.m. in the James R. Connor University Center concourse, with dinner at 5:45 p.m. in the Hamilton Center. Here is a look at career accomplishments of the new inductees: Running to daylight John Damato played football from 1995-’97. The running back helped the team to a conference title as a senior after writing his name into the record book. A two-time first team all-WSUC honoree, Damato was an all-region Damato pick by the Football Gazette and team MVP after a final season in which he gained 1,474 yards (7.8 average). He finished his UW-W career with 2,852 yards and a 6.35 average. Acting like an ace Laura (Hering) Granger was a member of the softball team from 1996-’99. The four-year letter winner graduated with a league record 67 victories (against 18 losses), a mark that still Granger sits sixth in WIAC annals and second at UWWhitewater. She led the Warhawks to two conference titles and three NCAA tourna-
ment berths. She was a threetime all-region pick and earned all-tournament accolades in the 1999 regional. Granger was selected to the all-WIAC teams four times, including the first unit her last two seasons. When she graduated, Granger held the top spot in the record book in season win-loss record (20-4 in 1998), strikeouts in a season (72 in 1998), career wins (67) and career strikeouts (229). Hitting machine Valerie (Kerkman) Auseth played alongside Granger from 1996-’99. A four-year letter winner and firstteam National Fastpitch Coaches Association AllAmerican, Auseth was named the WIAC Auseth East Division Player of the Year twice and earned all-conference recognition three seasons. She garnered first team Great Lakes Region in 1996 and 1999, third-team honors in 1998 and was named to the regional tourney team in 1999. Auseth topped the season list in at bats (153), hits (69), doubles (15) and RBI (48), all in 1999. Auseth also had the top marks in career at bats (536), hits (218), runs (157), RBI (125) and batting average (.407) — all are still in the top 10. All-America thrower Andreas Klotz was on the men’s track team from 1987-1990. He was named the team’s top thrower his first three years. He competed in six NCAA Division Klotz III championships, earning All-America honors four times. Outdoors,
Bob Berezowitz was named to the UW-Whitewater Hall of Fame as an athlete in 1982, and after 22 seasons as head coach from 1985 to 2006, he also has been named in the athletic department personnel category in the class of 2014. Klotz was the national runnerup in the discus in 1990 after taking fifth the year before. Klotz earned two All-America accolades in indoor championships in the shot put with a fourth in 1989 and third in 1990. He bested the competition in the 1990 WSUC indoor championship with a toss of 16.78 meters (55-0.75). As a captain in 1989, he was named the team’s MVP for his performance during the indoor season. Saving his best for last Todd Lamberty, who competed from 1983-86, is the first representative from men’s soccer in the school’s Hall of Fame. The goalie recorded a school record 309 career saves. He received the Hustle Award as a sophomore, was named a captain as a sen- Lamberty ior and earned MVP honors both years. Lamberty remains atop the list in multiple season and career record categories, including season marks for fewest goals allowed (nine in 1986) and best save percentage (92.2 percent in 1986). He led the Warhawks to their first D-III tournament appearance in 1986. Middle of the action Lynn (Olsen) Krueger earned
four letters as a middle hitter on the women’s volleyball team from 1996-’99. Krueger is the only Warhawk in the history of UW-Whitewater athletics to earn three CoSIDA Academic AllAmerica honors. In addition, she was recognized on the dean’s list Krueger all four years, was a Chancellor Scholar-Athlete, earned the WIAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award in 1999 and received the NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship Award. Her performance on the court was equally impressive. Krueger earned first-team All-America honors from the American Volleyball Coaches Association and Successful Farming in 1998 and 1999. Up and down the mat Rich Straub wrestled in three weight classes throughout his four-year career. Straub led the Warhawks to conference titles from 1989-’91, compiling a record of 116-44-1, including 59 by pin. His 44 wins (44-9) in 1992 are a school record. As a freshman in 1989, Straub took third in the WSUC at 142 pounds. After moving weight classes, Straub captured the WSUC title at 134 pounds in
1991. His senior season, Straub battled back after losing his first bout of the regional to pin four of his next six opponents Straub and finish second. In the D-III championships, Straub, the eighth seed, won his first two bouts before falling to the top seed. He worked through wrestlebacks and finished fifth, ending his career with a pin to gain All-America honors. Lifetime of achievements Dennis Salverson has been a longtime supporter of UW-W athletics. During his college years at UW-Whitewater, Salverson was chairman of the University Center Activities Board, where he helped fundraising for Warhawk Stadium and was a member of the homecoming Salverson committee in 1966-1968. As a founder and president of the Tipoff Club, charter member of the Dugout Club and a member of the Quarterback Club for more than 50 years, Salverson has shown his support for UW-Whitewater athletics in attendance and in financial support.
Hunting seasons opening soon for a variety of prey Now that fall officially has arrived, even more outdoor opportunities are available, including some great trophy fishing. But let’s start with hunting. A special deer hunt, open to people with disabilities who have a permit, is held in conjunction with landowners who have agreed to sponsor the hunters on their property. This year’s hunt will be from Oct. 4 through Oct. 12. Woodcock season opened Sept. 20 and runs through Nov. 3. Duck season opened Saturday (Sept. 27). In the northern zone, it runs through Nov. 25; in the Mississippi River Zone it runs through Oct. 5, then reopens Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 7. Canada goose season in the Mississippi River subzone opened Sept. 27 and runs through Oct. 5, reopens Oct. 18 and runs through Jan. 8. Pheasant season opens at noon Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 31. Ruffed grouse
J IM C HEADLE SCALES AND TAILS in Zone B also opens Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 8. In 2013, sharp-tailed grouse season was suspended. But this year it opens Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 10. Hungarian partridge season opens at noon Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 31 (closed in Clark, Marathon and Taylor counties). Cottontail rabbit opens at noon Oct. 18 in the southern zone and runs through Feb. 28. Raccoon gun and trapping opens Oct. 18 and runs through Feb. 15. Red and gray fox hunting and trapping opens Oct. 18 and runs through Feb. 15. The same
dates apply for coyote trapping season. Fisher trapping season opens in various zones Oct. 18 and runs through Dec. 31. Oct. 25 openings include muskrat season in the north, south and Winnebago zones through March 8. Also mink season opens in the north, and Lake Michigan and its tributaries and runs through March 8. • Oct. 31 is the deadline to purchase Lake Winnebago system sturgeon spearing licenses. • On Lake Michigan, Chinook salmon are gathering around harbor mouths and many brown trout already are in the rivers. Bright-colored spoons and white twister tails are producing fish. For trollers, work J Plugs behind Dipsey Divers, lead core line and flashers. Once again it’s a time of great opportunity for shore anglers. • Even after last year’s severe winter, the 2014 brood survey results show an
increase in the number and size of wild turkey and pheasant numbers compared to last year. This is great news, but I don’t think pheasants ever will be what they were in previous decades simply due to the loss of natural grasslands and the Conservation Reserve Program. • This past week some nice bucks were coming in from bow hunters. I was out for turkey and learned the most vicious creatures in the woods were the mosquitoes. The wild goose says: Don’t put the hummingbird feeders away too soon, because even though some have left, those migrating through the area will enjoy a refueling stop.
