PARK FALLS - A dog being trained to hunt bears was killed by wolves on July 1 near Merrill in southwestern Lincoln County.

I would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and affection my family is still receiving after the loss of my son, Joe Fern. There was a very large turnout at his funeral. What a great tribute it was to Joe and what a wonderful acknowledgement to the kind of person he was. I also want to thank everyone for all the beautiful flowers and generous donations. I am making donations in the memory of Joe to Lifesource and Organ Donation in St. Paul. There will be masses at St.
TO THE EDITOR: The Ellsworth School Administration is working hard to address the efforts needed to keep existing personnel and programs in place. Opportunities for improvement are being identified by the administration and shared with the electorate (voters). The identified areas of improvement need financial support from us, the public. Our school board members represent us and they need our support. We need each other. We also need a financial plan approved by Ellsworth community (referendum).
TO THE EDITOR: In the Jan. 12 Herald, Harlan Menk submitted a true-false quiz claiming Obamacare will not increase the deficit and recent insurance premium increases are not because of Obamacare. So it was instructive to get a mailing from U.S. Rep. Ron Kind titled "Health Care Reform in 2011--How the law will affect you this year," listing the new rights of folks who have health insurance. Insurers cannot drop coverage if you get sick. Lifetime limits on coverage are prohibited. You may be able to keep your children on your plan until age 26.
As many of you know, my brother Carl Schneider became ill in February and has been diagnosed with Alexander disease. It is a degeneration of the brain stem that has left him immobile, but he is still fully alert and receptive. He was recently moved from Ellsworth to Red Wing Health Center at 1412 W. Fourth St./Red Wing, MN 55066. Carl would love a visit from recent and past friends to help pass the days. Please pass the word. More information on Carl can be found at www.caringbridge.org (type in carlschneider).
