LOST AND FOUND--In 1911, Mary (Lindquist) Miller graduated from Peshtigo High School, and the event was formalized with diplomas signed by then-Principal George Michael Murphy. In 2001, the diplomas were found by in a dumpster when the Steenberg Homes office in Marinette was being moved. On Aug. 18, Lindquist’s nieces, Mary R. (Lindquist) Wolcanski, left, of Schacht Road, Peshtigo, and her sister, Alice (Lindquist) McDonald mailed the diplomas to Miller’s daughter, Jean (Miller) Mays, in Fort Smith, Ark.

Epic Journey Ends For Old Diplomas

Diplomas earned by Edna Lindquist in Peshtigo over 100 years ago are finally back with her descendants, thanks to a bit of dumpster diving and some old fashioned sleuthing started by Ruby Griffin in 2001. The saga of the diplomas ended on Monday, Aug. 18, when Lindquist relatives Mary (Lindquist) Wolcanski and her sister Alice (Lindquist) McDonald packed them carefully and sent them to Edna’s daughter, Jean (Miller) Mays, in Fort Smith, Ark.

Modern technology like e-mails, computers and cell phones entered the education, but in the end ...

Wastewater Treatment Plant Electric Bills Show Savings

Reconstruction of Peshtigo’s Wastewater Treatment Plant seem to be paying off in terms of reduced utility bills, according to information presented at the Water and Sewer Committee meeting Monday, Aug. 25.

Financial reports show electric use dropped significantly since the installation of new blowers and other changes involved with the Wastewater Treatment Plant rebuild completed earlier this year. In May of this year, electricity cost $5,467, and in May of 2013 the cost was $11,166. That compares with $9,047 for the same month in 2012...

Crivitz School Gets $170,000 Sparsity Aid, Gives 2% Raise

A happy superintendent Patrick Mans reported to Crivitz School Board on Wednesday, Aug. 20 that this year, for the first time since 2008, the district qualified for “Sparsity Aid” from the state, and would be receiving $170,000 that had not been anticipated, and that would not affect revenue limits. As a result, the board agreed to give 2 percent raises to staff members, which adds approximately $47,850 to the 2014 budget. The district had a pay freeze for the entire staff last year.

The personnel committee had previously recommended th...

County Removes Squad Cars, BearCat From Borrowing List

Marinette County Board appears to have made an about face on its intentions to go forward with the 5-year capital improvement plan and the $37,335,000 they had planned to borrow to finance it. At its meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 26 the board reversed its approval of plans to buy a $225,000 BearCat armored vehicle for the Sheriff’s Department and approved a motion removing two additional squad cars from the proposed 2015 list of planned purchases.

After those decisions were narrowly approved, County Board Chair Vilas Schroeder announced he w...

25,000 Attend Marinette County Fair Aug. 21-25

Attendance at the Marinette County Fair Aug. 21-25 was down about 5,000 from last year, according to Fair Board Secretary Lisa Witak. She said evening attendance was superior, but felt there were fewer daytime fairgoers than usual due to rain or threatening rain. Nevertheless, the 4-day annual event, now in its 87th consecutive year at Wausaukee, drew crowds totaling about 25,000 to ride the rides, admire the exhibits, and otherwise enjoy games, food and fun.

Highlight of Thursday evening was coronation of Rebecca Wickman as Fair Queen,...
