After doing his part to keep a 100-year-old family tradition going for 66 of his 85 years, Crivitz icon Jerry Kapalczynski, better known to the community as "Jerry the Barber," has decided to put down his clippers, retire and enjoy life.

Jerry has been cutting hair out of the same location in downtown Crivitz for 44 years and has served thousands of satisfied customers.

"Wish I'd put a dime away for every hair cut I did," Jerry commented. But perhaps more than money, he values the friendships that were built over the years. He will miss seeing those people, but will not miss the long hours on his feet that barbering requires.

The decision to close the shop he has operated at 604 Main Street in Crivitz since1976 didn't come easily for Jerry. He had a knee replaced in January, after which his legs started giving out. He hasn't held regular hours since then. Then came the coronavirus, which shut everyone down. "My body and my wife told me it was time," Jerry said. "My wife Clara and I have been married for 64 years and I knew I'd better listen to her." The shop remains closed and is now for sale.

Wednesday, June 3 at noon a group of approximately 200 protestors gathered on the Interstate Bridge between Marinette and Menominee to voice their support of the Black Lives Matter movement. With Wednesday’s protest, Marinette and Mennonite join a long list of American towns and cities that have joined together in solidarity over the killing of George Floyd by the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. Though some protests around the country have erupted into violence, Marinette and Menominee’s display turned out to be an extremely peaceful affair. Those who participated were allowed to take to the sidewalks of the bridge where they displayed signs, which held messages such as "Black Lives Matter" and "I can’t breathe," a reference to the pleas for help from Mr. Floyd during the incident, which many have viewed as a lynching, that took his life.

The crowd was primarily composed of local citizens from Marinette and Menominee, as well as people from the surrounding area to Green Bay. One protester, Travis Dory, said, “We need to change the hearts and minds of everyone across the world in order to end the systemic racism that is plaguing our American system. We must change the way people feel and think about race.” An overwhelming amount of motorists crossing the bridge Wednesday afternoon showed their support for the protesters by honking their horns with peace signs and raised fists out windows.

Pictures show some of the protestors on the Interstate Bridge.

Thursday, June 4th, was a day for students and teachers from Peshtigo Elementary Learning Center to get some closure on the 2019-2020 school year. The year started off pretty normal but ended with students and teachers quarantined from each other and leaning on parents to help end the school year.

After seeing how other school districts ended their year, Elementary Intervention Specialist Rebecca Gensler went into action. Gensler put out a survey to see who would be interested. Everyone seemed to think that this would be a great way to get a bit of closure on an awkward school year. After the survey results, Mrs. Gensler had to get the go-ahead from the administration.

Teachers were ready to say goodbye to students with signs and dance moves. Some teachers even brought bubbles and water wands to squirt their students.

Is fishing open now from the social distancing?
Newcap, Inc. Closes Physical Offices due to Public Health Emergency 
 This is an urgent update to the Public Health Emergency COVID-19. In conversation with our board and public health as well as the Governor’s pronouncement, we are advancing to a Level 3 Public Health Emergency based on our plan. In this time of public health emergency with the COVID-19 virus, Newcap has closed its physical offices to all staff with the exception of our normal food pantry days and our community health clinics from at least close of business, Wednesday, March 18th until Monday, April 6th. Our staff is still being paid during this time. Depending on the public health situation and orders of the government and public health officials, that may be extended. Please follow the recommendations of public health officials and our Governor and shelter in place as much as possible so that we can flatten the curve of infection, save lives, and return to our regular pattern of life as soon as possible. If you have a food insecurity issue, please let us know, we can help. Our staff are still available to our clients and our communities. Those staff with a job function that allows them to work remotely are doing so and if you reach out to them will get back to you as soon as possible. You may still call 1-800-242-7334 and someone will get you in touch with who you need to talk to. We are doing this in the hopes of stopping this virus from turning into a major health reality in our communities. There is still no reason to panic. This is all out of an abundance of caution and so we can stop the spread of this virus. If we all take the next 18 days and follow the recommended protocols, we can flatten the curve of infection and cross-infection considerably and be through this faster. During this time we remember, especially now during this stressful time for everyone, that our clients and neighbors in need are under even more stress and worry than usual. The promise that guides our work is, Community action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other. We at Newcap let that promise guide our work with our clients in this extraordinary time; nay, we let it guide in all our interactions with everyone we come in contact - community members, our neighbors, and even our family - it is all community action; we are all community action.

Ok here's the scoop on the canoe trip. I'll be meeting Dawn and Jwin at Stevenson Island bout 8 am on Wednesday. We will then head up to the raised garden bed/burial mound site by the boat landing. From there we will launch and start our trip. I'm going to pay respects to our ancestors, hang some tobacco, smudge the river. Everyday on our trip we are going to smudge and offer tobacco. Praying for a safe trip. We are going to do this! Water Protectors against the BACK 40 MINE!
Ok here is an update on the upcoming canoe trip down the Menominee river. I plan on leaving the morning of July 3rd. I've given myself 4 days but it could take less. Me and my paddle buddy are going to conduct on river interviews along the way in order to spread awareness concerning the BACK 40 MINE. The starting point is going to be at the raised Garden beds/burial mound and end at Stevenson Island in Marinette. Along the way I'll also be collecting birch bark for baskets I plan on making in the future and Diamond Willow for canes and walking sticks. I've been checking out the river and it has remained calm and serene. I cannot wait to begin this adventure. It has been in the planning stages for a couple of years now with my paddle buddy (Dawn Wilber). We are going to do this. If anyone would like to join us for this trip either full or partial, you are welcome and I encourage it. I'm doing this trip not only to spread awareness concerning this mine but to experience what it was like back in the day to travel by waterways since there was no highways or vehicles. The way our ancestors did. And I will be landing at Stevenson Island wearing my ribbon shirt as a proud member of the Wolf Pack and Shinaabe. Depending on WiFi I'll be making daily posts along the way. That is all.
We had this last year in April too. The last blast, soon in the past. Poets talk in rhyme, sometimes. LOL
Who is the editor of the newspaper? Is it a relation of John Gorden?
Thank you so much for the great article concerning the Aquila Resources amendment request to expand their mining project on the Menominee River. You do a great job at reporting the facts!
I do not want to receive your mailings. You're wasting paper. Please, for the love of all things holy, stop sending me your trash or I will start sending you my trash in return.
Good paper--we read in Florida. Only complaint is that the Country Cousin is too political and knows very little about politics and fact. The cousin should stick to recipes. Walker is leaving Wisconsin and the office with a $4 billion debt to Foxconn that will never get a return on investment. New York got Amazon for only $2.4 billion without the toxic waste that Foxconn will generate.
