Belle of the ball


Contributed Photo Synergy Always A Stunner-Red, a red and white registered Holstein, won the seventh annual Shawano County Futurity at the Shawano County Fair. She was shown by Mikayla Haack, who also won the award as Best Dressed Junior.

There was a hint of a dynasty at the seventh annual Shawano County Futurity at the Shawano County Fair on Saturday.

A 3-year-old cow, Synergy Always A Stunner-Red, won the event, which drew a class of 14, giving the Jauquet and Haack families their fifth consecutive win at the fair’s most formal event.

“I think she‘s a beautiful uddered cow,” Heather Jauquet said. “She’s a hard-working milk cow. I think that showed.”

The Jauquets and Haacks also received the second-place award with Synergy Always Smokin-Red.

The animals come from Synergy Dairy in the town of Angleica.

The cows are owned by Mason, Carter and Evan Jauquet, and their cousins, Carmen, Mikayla and Spencer Haack. The owners’ ages range from 13 to 19. They are the children of Jay and Heather Jauquet and Pete and Vonnie Haack.

Shawano officer taking over as Bonduel police chief

Shawano police officer Tony Escalante has been named Bonduel’s new police chief, taking over the post from retiring chief Todd Chaney as of Sunday.

“I feel pretty good about it,” Escalante said. “It’s a good opportunity.”

Escalante was already spending anywhere from 15 to 30 hours a week as a part-time officer in Bonduel in addition to his full-time Shawano duties.

Shawano allows its officers to work additional jobs.

Late last year, Escalante said, Chaney reached out to other departments for any assistance that could be provided with the staffing shortage in Bonduel.

“I put my name in the basket,” said Escalante, who has been part time with the Bonduel department since December.

Between the two jobs, he has been working seven days a week, some of those 20-hour days, but his family was supportive of his decision, he said.

SACF tries ‘high-end’ fundraiser

The Shawano Area Community Foundation is trying something a little different — and a bit more ambitious — with its next fundraiser.

The SACF will host its first Harvest Moon Soirée, which the foundation hopes will become an annual event, Sept. 30 at Camp Tekakwitha.

The soirée will feature craft cocktails, cuisine from a nationally renowned chef and entertainment provided by a string quartet; not typical hallmarks of a SACF fundraiser.

“We’ve done golf outings and things like that,” said board member Jon Meyers, who chairs the committee organizing the event. “We wanted to take a different approach.”

Meyers said the foundation wanted to try something with “a high-end feel” to it, and acknowledged it was more ambitious than the usual fundraiser.

“That’s a good word for it,” he said.

The ticket price for the event is $250 per person.

Clintonville council to review sewer lateral assessments

The Clintonville Common Council is expected to decide at its Sept. 12 meeting whether to approve the sanitary sewer lateral assessments for the Main Street reconstruction project.

Eight property owners attended a public hearing Aug. 24 regarding the assessments from 13th Street to state Highway 156. Following the hearing, the utility board voted to recommend approval of the assessments to the council.

Assessments are expected to be $1,631.45 for the 6-inch sanitary sewer lateral replacement and $65.15 for the cost of the temporary pedestrian surface. Sixty-six property owners are affected.

Property owners will have three options for paying the assessment. The bill can be paid in full upon receipt, put on the tax roll or paid in a five-year installment plan with interest.

If property owners fail to select a payment option, the assessment will go on the tax bill.
