A Final Everyone Can
Enjoy
By Malia North
As the New Year
starts the students are
busy everywhere finishing
up work before the end
of the semester. Things
are a little different in
Mrs. Kasinski’s Food
Service class. They are
already working on their
finals. Each student in
the class has to choose
a certain type of meal
to prepare and serve to
costumers. With a total
of seven students, they
all have very different
meals. Forrest Howk
who prepared his meal
before Christmas break,
made New Orleans
food. Josi Montano will
be making traditional
Native American food.
Matt Gordon will be
making Mexican. Kasey
Thornburg is making
Italian food. John Burg
is making Indian food.
Zach Boutin is preparing
Northwestern Territory
food and Kevin Wiggins
will be preparing Chinese
food. They charge about
$7 for a full three course
meal. Junior Joe DePerry
who ate at Forrest’s
New Orleans restaurant
said, “It was really good
service, but I just don’t
like sea food. I do plan to
eat at others though.”
It’s a way for the
students to learn what
a real restaurant is like.
They have to treat the
students and teachers not
like students and teachers,
but like customers at an
actual restaurant.

Girl’s Basketball
By Alison Erickson
Low numbers is definitely the greatest weakness of the high school girls’ basketball team. With
an already beginning few number of girls who started
playing basketball, the team is struggling to keep players due to injury, academics, and other issues. However, the team is doing a good job on the court with what
they’ve got. The girls are matched well with several
teams in the conference. Bayfield has played extremely well during various quarters of certain games,
but they are having a hard time giving all four quarters
100%. That aspect has given the girls only one conference win; however, the talented group of girls has a
lot to show for themselves.
Italy
By Alison Erickson
Bayfield and Washburn High School students
were given the opportunity to partake in a trip to
Italy this June. The trip is being organized by Kathy
Radtke through EF Educational tours. The entire cost
of the trip is $2,484. Most of the students planning
on going to Italy this spring are from Washburn High
School. Alison Erickson is the only student from
Bayfield going on the trip. The group of kids will be
leaving Thursday, June 12 and spending eight nights
in various parts of Italy. The first two nights will be
spent in classical Rome. Florence is the destination
for the following two nights. Following Florence,
is a two night stay in picturesque Venice. The group
circles back to Rome for the remaining nights. The
trip includes visits to St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine
Chapel, the Colosseum, Duomo, and Doges’ Palace.
Overall, it should be an educational and exceptionally
enjoyable trip.

Poetry Celebration
By:Camille Bohnert
On Friday January 18th,
K-8 students read poetry
pieces over the intercom
throughout the day.
This poetry celebration
in honor of Edgar
Allan Poe’s birthday
was organized by Mrs.
Boulley. At the beginning
of each high school hour,
four or five kids read a
poem that they either
had found or written
themselves. Overall about
thirty five students read,
ranging from kindergarten
to eighth grade. “I think
they loved it” said Mrs.
Boulley “more kids kept
coming down during
the day asking if they
could read.” Along with
Bayfield students who
read, the K-8 principal
Mr. Malyuk, the mayor,
and Parent Ted Gephart
also read a poem of
their choice. The poetry
reading seemed to be
a fun experience for
everyone, and it helped
the kids learn a little
about memorization.
There should be more to
come for K-8 kids soon.
The poetry celebration
kicked off the start of
The North Woods Young
Author’s Conference also
started by Mrs. Boulley.
Homecoming Events
By: S. Montano
Every year high school
students look forward to
homecoming and the fun
events that go along with
it. Most of these events remain the same year after
year, but this year we have
a few changes. Some of the
changes are that students will
not be decorating the hallways as they have in the past,
in place of this they will be
constructing a free-standing
structure. Another change is
that students are not allowed
to choose their Air Band music. Faculty members wrote
up a list of songs that they felt
were appropriate for Air Band
and then representatives from
each class decided the songs
that their class would perform. The fallowing is a list
if events that will occur starting Monday Jan. 28th- Friday

Seniors and the primary elections
by K. Williams
The 2008
elections are not
like others, with the
possibility of a madam
president, an African
American president, and
a television actor, Fred
Thomson. Some of the
2008 graduates will be
voting for the first time.
To the right, the graph
shows each senior and
the response they have
for the 2008 primary
elections. Because some
of the seniors don’t turn
eight-teen before the
primary elections or they
didn’t want to comment,
they answered no to the
survey; however, they
were able to put who they
would want as president
and or what party they
would support. Here are
their results.

Second Semester!!!
By: Camille Bohnert
The year is already half
over. First semester
down, and just one to
go for us lucky seniors.
Second semester always
seems to pass faster than
the first. This might be
because the spring is
usually a busy time. We
have a lot in store for 3rd
and 4th quarter, especially
the seniors. We can look
forward to Valentines
Day, St. Patrick’s Day,
April Fools Day, Easter,
and don’t forget spring

break! We have baseball,
girls soccer, forensics,
homecoming, and
toothpick bridges to keep
us busy. Then finally in
June, there’s the last day
of school and Graduation.
School ends on June 10th
and graduation for the
class of 2008 will be on
June 7th. In March we
have spring break from
the 21st to the 28th, that’s
more than a week of no
school! We also have
early release on March
7th, April 25th, and May
9th. Hopefully second
semester will be exciting
here at Bayfield. “I think
probably Valentines Day
and spring break are my
favorite things about
second semester,” said
Caitlin Gorman. “I really
like second semester
because I get to teach fun
classes like geography
and psychology” said Mr.
Hay “and, I like spring
break because usually I
get to go somewhere.”
Jesse Flores said his
favorite part about second
semester is homecoming
week. “It’s a new start,”
said Juliet Duffy “and
I like break.” Steven
Bresette said “Valentine’s
Day is pretty cool.”
Packer Predictions

The Green Bay Packers finished the regular season at 13-3 and won their divisional playoff
contest 42-20 last Sunday vs. the Seattle Seahawks. On Sunday they played the New York Giants

Music at Dances
By Alison Erickson
People are often unsatisfied with the music
played at school dances. It is difficult for the student
council to pick Disc Jockeys that we can afford and
that the dance participants will enjoy. Everyone has
different music taste, which makes it almost impossible to find a disc jockey for a dance that will be liked
by everyone. “We try to get the same D.J. every year,
because we know he’s done good in the past,” says
student council president, Malia North. The following
survey was taken to see what music students prefer to
hear at dances.

Parent & Child class visits hospital
By S. Cadotte
On Friday, January 18, Mrs. K’s Parent
and Child class went to
Memorial Medical Center in Ashland to tour the
birthing center there. Before we walked down to
the center we had to wait
in the waiting room for a
lady to give us a tour of
the rooms. The first room
was a room that a woman
goes in when she first
gets to the hospital so the
nurses can check to see
if the woman has started
to dialate. If there’s no
progress in the dialation, then they’ll send the
woman home. If there
is progress they’ll put
the woman in a laboring
room.
In the laboring
room there is a bed were

Are You Going to College?
By: Camille Bohnert
I asked this question
to twenty seven of
Bayfield’s seniors just
out of curiosity. I was
just trying to figure out
where everybody else is
as far as college goes.
Do they plan to go at all?
Have they started doing
anything about it yet? It
takes some time and a
lot of thought to figure
these things out. Most
kids aren’t quite sure
yet about what they’re
doing. In fact, only five
of the twenty seven have
decided on a school.
Some others are close
behind. Five students
have applied to schools
and have been accepted to
one or more, but haven’t
yet decided on where they
want to go. Four students
have applied to schools
and are waiting to hear
back, and only two out of
twenty seven seniors told
me that they don’t plan to

In the bathroom
there is a whirlpool tub so
the pregnant woman can
relax. Also in the room
there’s a baby warmer
which looks like a little
crib.
After we left the
room we looked at the

sixteen seniors. Sixteen
kids are in the process
of figuring out their next
step in life. What about
the other Eleven? There
are eleven students who
told me they plan to go to
college but have not yet
applied to any schools.
A couple of those kids
said they had started to
fill out an application
or they have an idea
of where they want to
go. Well, deadlines are
coming up fast now.
It’s already the end of
January, so if you plan to
attend college next fall,
your time is running out.
Don’t underestimate how
long it takes to apply and
hear back from a school.
Good luck to the kids
who are going to apply,
and also to the few who
are waiting to hear back.
Congratulations to the
kids who have already
been accepted.

public image at this time.
The world of imagination,
fantasy, arts, music,
or mysticism is very
appealing to you now, and
if you have talent in any
of these areas, this can
be a creative and fruitful
time for you. However,
the negative possibilities
for you now are being
undisciplined, slack,
indefinite, or wasting time
and energy. .
There may be a lot of
activity surrounding work
and professional pursuits
at this time. You may
feel obsessed with getting
some work accomplished;
however, you may
discover you only run
around in circles and get
very little done. Your
daily work routine might
need to be rearranged or
reorganized.
Aries
Taurus
Pay close attention to
preserving the respect,
dignity, and commitment
in relationships. Try to
avoid acting and instead
attempt to be more
tolerant of individual
needs at this time. It
is best not to allow
too much pride to get
in the way of coming
to an agreement or
compromise.
Gemini
Your enthusiasm and
knowledge can draw new
people and experiences
into your life now. Your
most constructive efforts
will most likely be
successful when you join
forces with others on a
common goal, project, or
creative interest.
Cancer
Your friendly concern
for others and your
willingness to meet
people half way benefits
your career, reputation, or
Leo
Virgo
You will have a clearer
awareness for you life’s
goals and objectives,
as well as your public
image and reputation. If
you take advantage of
this favorable time, you
can effectively pursue
your ambitions with
zeal, perseverance and
dedication.
Libra
This can be quite an
enjoyable period when
you express your love to
others through thoughtful
and caring ways. Giving
in a generous manner
and being attentive to the
needs of others makes
people want to confide
in you now or seek your
guidance.
Scorpio
At this time, you put your
faith and trust in hard
work and determination
to accomplish your ideals
and aspirations. Utilizing
your knowledge, planning
ahead, and making the
most of opportunities will
be of most concern to
you.
Sagittarius
The challenges that you
face now can be greatly
relieved if you search
for more suitable outlets
to release negative
tendencies and emotions.
Capricorn
This is a freewheeling,
enterprising, and
creative time. Fortunate
opportunities arise. A
new wave of optimism
lifts your spirits, and
career matters make this
an enjoyable time. Your
creative efforts find a
successful outlet, and you
receive an enthusiastic
response from others.
This is a time of harmony
and well-being. Aquarius
A blending of similar
interests and attitudes can
help establish closer tiesin
relationships. Pledges of
love, commitment, and
loyalty can be exchanged.
Pisces
Projects that have been in
the planning stages can be
successfully implemented
or brought forth at this
time. Creative and
intellectual endeavors
are favored now, and you
will most likely gain the
support and appreciation
from important and
influential people.

IMPROVEMENTS MADE TO THE CARS IN HOPES OF WINNING ANOTHER
GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP
By. Joe Newago
The Bayfield electrathon team is making
improvements to all the
cars to make them faster,
more efficient, and bigger, so some of the other
team members can drive.
For example, the 07 car
was cut right behind the
driver compartment and
is having a rear swing
arm suspension built to
match the A arm suspension built last year which
is also being changed a
little bit. The team would
also like to build a cool
new shell for the car. All
of this will help the car be
more efficient and handle
better on bumpy tracks
and tracks with lot of
sharp curves. The team
members working on it
are Joe Newago, Shawn
Hanson, Sandy Gokee,

The 06 car had all
of the roll bar cut off and
is in the process of having
a new roll cage built for
it. Team members also
want to make a new shell
for that car. The team
members working on this
car are Christine Silvernail, Lee Balber, and
David Lagrew. The 08 car is also
going through some big
changes. It has a tricycle
design which is going to
be rebuilt out of aluminum and the whole car
is going to be shortened
up. A new rear axel is
being designed to make a
smaller, more aerodynamic new carbon fiber shell.
This will lighten this
vehicle up a lot, making it
very efficient. The team
members working on this
car are Tanner Bresette,
Kahlil Burst, Jimmy Bresette, and Austin Basina. The team has just
finished up a compact
fluorescent light bulb
and LED Christmas light
sale to raise money to go
on the two trips to Fox
Valley Technical College
and Road America in the
spring. They would also
like to buy new helmets
and race communications
like in helmet radios and
vehicle parts. In addition to this they have had
cookouts and had bingos
to raise money. The
team is looking forward
to finishing and racing
the cars and hope that
they can regain the grand
championship which was
lost by just four points
last year.

Web Browsing Mix-up
By A. Bresette
In the past, students have
been able to use the Internet at
school for research and other
learning activities. Though many
of them use their time to learn
about new topics, many students
are not able to get into their desired
websites because of the web
blockers. This can create problems
for students because certain phrases
or keywords are blocked when they
try to communicate or research
topics during classes. Some
students become frantic when they
realize they aren’t allowed to access
their email content or myspace
pages and others don’t care because
they think the content should be
accessed on their own time. In the
past few months the complaints
have risen and the number of
websites blocked has doubled,
but why do students insist on
wasting their time? The answer to
that question is simple, they don’t
follow the rules and guidelines
set by the administration. Before
students log onto their server they
are required to read a message.
That message says that using the
contents of the server is a privilege
not a right, which means it can be
taken away. The main problem here
is that no one gets their privilege
taken away, but instead the websites
they visit get blocked, allowing
them to access the website again
through other websites. This circle
creates a negative atmosphere for
both students and teachers because
it’s getting the students to try
harder to get into websites, but also
having the teachers try harder to
get the students to pay attention,
and though some of the students
use their privileges to do the work,
there are always going to be those
students who use their class time
for their personal life which will
continue to keep the circle full and
the ball rolling leading to no where
but more websites blocked.

The Travestee
by Weston Thier
For most high
school students looking to form a musical
band of their own,
the radio is a distant
goal that takes years
to ascend to. But if
you want to know
what it feels like to be
featured on the radio,
just ask a member of
the Travestee, a threemember rock group
founded by high
school students Ian
Atkins, Travis Thier,
and Peter Atkins. In
December they played
on Ted Gephart’s
radio show, on 92.3,
which is based out of
Red Cliff. The show,
which airs on Saturday morning at 10:00,
contains a little bit of
everything, from poetry to politics to live
Since so many people listen to different music I than
asked what THEIR favorite song of 2007 was.
• Sunday Best- Augustana
• No One- Alicia Keys
• Sexual Eruption- Snoop Dog
• Blueberry Yum Yum- Ludacris
• Three Little Birds- Bob Marley
• Cemetery Gates- Pantera
• Dooms Day Clock- Smashing Pumpkins
music. The Travestee
performed three
songs, two of which
were original compositions. The band
has been working on
some new material
and plan to do more
shows this winter as
well.
“I think that we have
a good start . Hopefully we can catch on
locally and make a
name for ourselves,”
said guitarist Ian
Atkins. If you want to hear
more of the band’s
music, you can visit
their myspace page by
typing in “Travestee”
in Myspace Music.
Ski Team
P. Atkins
The Ashwabay ski team is made up of speedy skiers from the Washburn
and Bayfield school districts. Skiing combines reckless speeds with precision and
control. It is a sport where milliseconds matter, and a mere second could be the
difference between first and last. This year the competition is stiff, the top teams in
the region are very evenly matched. The Ashwabay ski team is right up there, with
good finishes in the first few conference meets.
On January, 10 they started their regular season with a ski meet at
Indianhead Ski Area near Bessemer, MI. The Ashwabay boys narrowly took first in
the meet, getting 132 points for the win. In the girls division, Ashwabay took third
with 122 points. Individual results for the Bayfield team members were as follows:

Note: Skiing is a sport of perfection. Small mistakes can lead to disaster, crashes,
missed gates, or a slower time. DNFs (Did not finish) and DQs (Disqualified)
mean the skier missed a gate or lost a ski, resulting in a last place ranking. Crashes
hurt individual ranking, but the skier can still contribute to the team in the other
races.
The second Northern Ski League meet took place at Mount Christi, near
Rice Lake, WI. Again, the Ashwabay teams did well; both placing in the top three.
The boys took second with 111 points and the girls had 135 points to take third.

The ski meet scheduled for January 19 at Brule Mountain was rescheduled
to February 2 due to extremely cold weather. Temperatures below zero and thin
speed suits are a dangerous combination. However, next NSL meet will take
place at Mount Ashwabay on January 31. The races will start about 9:30 am and
continue until mid afternoon. Spectators are encouraged to come witness the
awe inspiring spectacle of ski racing. Even though there is school, students are
welcome to come and cheer on Bayfield schools’ most successful sports program.

Cell Phone Mania
By A. Bresette
Cell phones
have been used for
communicating with
others and in the past six
months students have
kept their phones on
during school despite the
warning that says that
they can get them taken
away. Students wonder
why they get them taken
away and the simplest
answer to that is that they
are distracting to classes
and they will not help you
with your work. Many
of the students say they
bring their phones to
school because it allows
them to communicate
with their friends before,
after, or during class
periods. Since it’s so
distracting, teachers are
supposed to take phones
away from students the
moment they hear a
phone or see a student
using one. They usually
do get taken away, but
why do so many students
bring their phones to
school if they know they
are taking a risk of getting
them taken away? The
only way to get out of the
phones being taken away
is to leave your phones
off, or just don’t bring
them to school unless you
don’t care either way.
Riddle Me This

1. A murderer is
condemned to death. He
has to choose between
three rooms. The first is
full of raging fires, the
second is full of assassins
with loaded guns, and the
third is full of lions that
haven’t eaten in 3 years.
Which room is safest for
him?
2. If one child has 6 2/3

3 1/3, and you combine
them, how many sand
piles do you have?
3. Ten pears hanging

Is it cold outside?
By A. Bresette
It started out warm but
slowly began to drop.
The temperature outside
has changed very quickly
this winter season. When
people think of winter
they think of December as
the month when it can’t
get any colder. But then
January comes around the
corner and that’s when
everyone really begins
to notice that it is a lot
colder than the month
before the New Year.

eyes than one. I can be
very nice when I am
done. What am I?
1.The room with the lions
- if they have not eaten
in 3 years, they would be
dead and thus not be a
danger to anyone!

cold can affect how you
work at school or at your
job. Many of the people
affected by the cold stay
home either because
they can’t deal with the

low temperatures. So
what can we expect from

Who’s the
electronic bandit?
By: Christine Silvernail
Is it controllable
or are we all in danger
of having personal items
being stolen. Within a
two week time period
four items have been
stolen. Mrs. Peterson’s
school mass media
camera was been stolen
before Christmas. The
week after we came back
from break three more
items were stolen: Mr.
Rogers’ Nintendo DS and
two games, Jered Rogers
Defoe’s PSP (play station
portable) and Christine
Silvernail’s Nintendo DS
and one game.
In the past we
have had I-pods, cell
phones and many other
personal items stolen.
I suppose it’s our own
faults for bringing the
items to school, but things
that can’t be avoided, like
Mrs. Peterson’s camera,
it’s school property, come
on! I suggest the best
answer is to keep them
home people, or at least
keep them on your body
at all times because all
of the items that were
stolen recently have been
invasion of personal
property.
Jered’s PSP was in his
jacket, Mrs. Peterson’s
camera was taken off her
desk, Mr. Rogers’ DS was
stolen out of his briefcase,
and Christine’s DS was
stolen out of her purse.
