Salms invite all to anniversary
space
It started out small, a dinner with family and a few friends, but by the time Nick and Jeanette Salm got done planning, it had gotten big.

Really big.

It just kind of snowballed, Mrs. Salm said.

That’s an understatement.

In celebration of their golden wedding anniversary on Saturday, the Salms are throwing a bash for the entire community, featuring the music of Monroe Crossing, at one of the couple’s favorite locations, the Antigo City Park bandstand. The couple was instrumental in restoring and expanding the structure and establishing the acclaimed summer Music in the Park series that is now being copied across the northwoods.

The free concert will run from 2 to 4 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs and dancing shoes. If it rains, the fun will continue at a sheltered location in the livestock pavilion at the Langlade County Fairgrounds.

The band promised they’d play plenty of 60s-era tunes for us, Salm said. It should be a lot of fun.

Monroe Crossing, a bluegrass band and regular performer at the Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield, has performed for enthusiastic Music in the Park crowds in the past, Salm explained, but co

With weather expert predicting that rainfall would be south of Langlade County, the big pivots were up and watering down the thousands of acres of potatoes in the county Wednesday afternoon. Only a few miles from the irrigation site, two young men were baling hay on a field east of Antigo, a practice that should be done with the crop is dry. The weather guessers were wrong, and the original showers predicted for this area came early this morning.

White Lake garden moves ahead
space
The White Lake Community Garden has taken on a centennial theme.

As part of the town’s year-long centennial celebration, garden volunteers have added a new sign, created and constructed by Colleen Kupfer, along with four benches.

The garden efforts are being coordinated by Patsy Listle with help from a long list of volunteers who spend their days mulching, pulling weeds, planting and harvesting the bounty. Much of the extra produce is distributed free to the community and the White Lake School food service program.

Country Store in Antigo provided the seeds, while materials for the sign were donated by Brent Hipke and Kupfer. Julie Rose and Listle donated two small benches, which were constructed by John Rose. The two larger benches were donated by the Frisch families in memory of Carl and Marcella Olson.

Jim Popelka keeps the garden tilled.

Much of the garden work has been funded through a grant from Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

Karl, Jil Schulz honored by veterans
space
Karl’s Transport showed its appreciation to the nation’s veterans over the weekend, and got a thank you back in return.

Karl and Jil Schulz who own the rapidly-growing transportation business, hosted their fifth annual Clifford Hausmann Memorial Vietnam Vet Cookout at Lake Park, drawing veterans from across the armed forces for an afternoon of dining and camaraderie.

The couple explained that the cookout is in honor of a 19-year employee and friend, Clifford Hausmann, who shared many stories about his time in Vietnam and his return home to a very chilly reception from the nation.

After Clifford passed, we wanted to do something that would not only honor him, but also show how much we love and appreciate veterans, Jil Schulz said. We wanted to give them the homecoming they deserve and show our gratitude for all they have done for our great nation.

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2653 Commander Mike Piller and Senior Vice Commander Jim Diestler presented the couple with a token of appreciation.

It really has grown into a very nice event and it gets larger every year, Piller said. They have done a lot for the veterans of this area.

Board honors retiring employee
space
Dave Solin, chairman of the Langlade County Board of Supervisors, presented a plaque and praised the dedication of Joy S. Pecha, who is retiring after 38 1/2 years of holding assignments at the courthouse.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the county board, Solin offered kind word’s about Pecha’s long-term performance and she thanked the board, saying it was a privilege.

For much of that time she served as register in probate, probate court commissioner and clerk of juvenile court.

The June session was held in a large and comfortable room at the Wood Technology Center, a facility built as a cooperative effort between Northcentral Technical College and Langlade County.

Bobbi Damrow, who serves as dean for the college’s eastern campus in Antigo, welcomed the supervisors and guests, explaining the name of wood center is being changed by dropping the word technologies, and substituting sciences.

She explained a number of activities on the east campus, which now has 235 full-time equivalency students. Because of other education and work requirements, the actual number of people using the facilities is between 300 and 350, she said.
