Page 2 Golden Valley News July 13, 2017 Jerilyn "Jeri" CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. - Jeff- lyn "Jeff" Hanson Brost of Chippewa Falls passed away Friday, June 30, 2017, following complications from posterior cortical atrophy, a rare form of Alzheimer's disease. She was born Jan. 3, 1946, the start of the Baby Boom. Her parents were Arthur "Art" Hanson, who died before her birth, and Evangeline "Vangie" (Uelman) Hanson of Beach. In her prime, Jeri was wildly ir- reverent, outrageous and sarcastic but without being unkind, vulgar or cyn- ical. She was wicked smart, laugh out loud funny, and her heart was as big as the North Dakota sky. Jeri loved stories in all forms - reading, going to movies, listening to the radio, watching television and, above all, a good conversation. She saw the world through an au- thor's eyes. Her husband, Gerald "Jerry" Brost, was her great love story. They met as students at North Dakota State University. He majored in engineering; she majored in "arts and flowers." She had a boyfriend but Jerry had a guitar and boldly sere- naded her with "That Boy's No Good for You" in front of the unsuspecting guy. For the rest of her life she would be "crazy mad" for him, only willing to leave him for Elvis or Paul New- man. They were children of the sixties, leaning more to social justice than free love. In college, she did social work at an Indian reservation and graduated with a degree in sociology and psychology. The couple married and lived in North Dakota, New Jer- sey and New York before settling in Wisconsin. Together they had four children; Jeffrey Arthur, Jason, Kirstin and Josh. All four believe themselves to be her favorite and all four are likely right. Their home was filled with happy chaos; a mix of love, laughter, good food and naughty pets. In the difficult years since her diagnosis, Jerry devoted himself to ensuring she had the best possible life. Jeri believed in serving the com- munity. From 1984 to 2014 she was a member of the Chippewa County Board of Supervisors, one of a hand- ful of women. Over the years, her fel- low board members elected her to serve in a number of leadership posi- tions. She was most interested in county programs that helped those in greatest need. She was proud to vol- unteer for the Chippewa Area Men- tor Program and loved delivering Meals on Wheels. Jeri was a loyal Democrat. Her passion for politics was motivated by a very real, personal understanding of the impact government policies have on individual lives. Her mother raised four daughters and a stepsister as a single morn. Vangie always worked multiple exhausting jobs but consid- ered New Deal programs her salva- tion. Each night's prayers ended with "God bless Art and God bless FDR." Jeri was the smartest person in the room and had an infectious enthusi- asm for learning. She was a voracious reader and public radio addict. She always appreciated the beauty in the world around her. Her home is filled with thrift store finds. Her heaven was Christiansen's florist in February or Klinger's gardens in spring. "If ever you doubt the exis- tence of God, visit a greenhouse," she said. Hanson Brost She made the best chocolate chip cookies. People would line up at bake sales waiting for her apple pies. Hol- idays at her house were magical - the decorations, the food, the mountains of Betty Crocker cookies - and every- one was invited to her table. Jeff's core motivation was love. If she knew you, she mothered you. Her door was always open if you needed to talk, ask advice, get a pep talk, or a eat cookie. When Jeff believed in you, you felt like you could do any- thing. When misfortune hit, she would show up with a little some- thing and a big hug that said you were loved. And her love was returned. Jeri's friends stood by her through thick and thin. Long after it was easy, they would show up to visit, and today they console her grateful family. For the last 10 years, Jeff did well to live her best life even as Alzheimer's stole so much from her. She still insisted she was luckier than others. Faced with the catastrophic diagnosis, she would trek to Rochester for a study to help Mayo Clinic find answers for fighting the disease. And she never failed to enjoy a beautiful day, a pretty flower, Diet Pepsi, Olson's ice cream, or Sokup's fresh corn. Until the end, she found joy in her husband, children and grandchildren. She is survived by her husband Jerry; sisters Helen (Leroy) Adams of Lake Arrowhead, Calif.; Harriett (Jack) B]0tk of TacOma, Wash.; and Ardi (Maynard) Bury of Kent, Wash.; and children and grandchildren Jef- frey Arthur Brost of New York, N.Y. ; Jason, Anne Marie, Henry and Tommy Brost of Falls Church, Va.; Kirstin, Chris and Iris Grantham of Hugo, Minn.; and Josh Brost and fi- ancee Maggie Abernathy of Wash- ington D.C. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband's parents Ray and Elizabeth (Sickler) Brost of Dickinson; and grandson Elliott Grantham. A visitation was held Friday evening, July 7, from 4-8 p.m. at Horan Funeral Home in Chippewa Falls. There was a Christian vigil ser- vice at 7:30 plm. on Friday at the fu- neral home. The funeral was held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday at St. Charles Catholic Church The Rev. Dan Oudenhoven was the celebrant of the funeral Mass. Interment was in Hope Cemetery in Chippewa Falls. Lunch at the Heyde Center for the Arts followed. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to the Heyde Center or the Alzheimer's Association.

The fam- ily was notified the last part of May. He lived alone so the exact time of his death is unknown. Edward was born in Beach on April 6, 1931, the son of Fredwin and Lizzie (Omley) Crook. He attended Trotters School in his elementary years and graduated from the Beach High School with the class of 1951. He served in the Korean Conflict and went on to graduate with honors from Cal Poly in California. He spent the last 30 years working, and retir- ing in Hawaii. He is survived by one son in Cedar Creek, Texas, and sibling Fred Crook of Hereford, Texas, and Joyce Fjelstad of Watford City. He also had numerous nephews and nieces. Please local support your merchants Start planning for next year Mother Nature has changed everything - again. The upper Midwest's dry to drought conditions have changed stocking rates, challenged pasture rotation schedules, hastened the end-grazing date, and limited cow and calf condition scores. Producers need to work through the present and take steps to minimize the ef- fects of this year's drought on next year's production. By weaning and pregnancy checking early, thin, pregnant cows have a chance to improve condition once the calves are weaned. Move out any open or late-bred cows. Wean the calf early, and pay atten- tion to the markets for a good time for selling the calf. An important point still remains: Much of the country is not short on feed, and timely marketing in re- sponse to the broader market trends is important. Finding a way to hold the calves to allow for a good mar- ket strategy is good common sense. But keeping the calves gaining in a dry lot takes some homework. For now, focus on the cow and wisely stretch the feed on the good keeper COWS. The cows will not come off in normal condition, and do not put off what is inevitable - thin pregnant cows. So start looking at feed re- sources, and once the calves are weaned - earlier than later this fall - the dry cow needs to put back on some condition. The nutritional requirements of a cow whose calf was weaned are lower when milk production ceases. So the thought for the day is: If one buys feed, why not plan on feeding when the cow can better use the feed? Waiting to add condition to a thin cow is difficult. The cow ad- vances daily in fetal growth. The third trimester of pregnancy will be here soon and the cow will need to be eating to support the accelerated growth of the calf. Plus, the poten- tial harshness of the upcoming win- ter will demand more thermal output to survive. Her daily feed in- take will be needed to keep the un- born calf growing and stoking her interna! furnace for'heat, To make matters worse, as soon as she calves next spring, all hands on deck because milk production kicks in as the cow turns into a per- petual milking machine. Feed in, milk out is not a time to be in poor condition. So when hay is expen- sive, feed it when it will do the most good - this coming fall. And do not rule out additional pasture supple- ments, or dry lot the cows and add grain to the ration this fall. Again, the point is: Thin cows gain weight in the fall with less feed. The cow is pregnant, but the fetus is not quite so demanding. In the fall, the cow does not have to set aside some of what she eats to sim- ply keep warm. She feels good, not like in late pregnancy, when she has to carry well in excess of 100 to 200 pounds of extra weight balanced on legs and pelvis meant to come apart on short notice. The bottom line: Be nice to the cow and let her gain a little weight and put some flesh on this fall. Tra- ditional timing and the business of upcoming fall work can cause one to miss this point. Skimping, skimp- ing and skimping some more, and hoping the cows will survive until grass next spring, is poor planning. Thin cows always have that same look while walking single file, looking for feed where none is available, cautious with slight anx- iety. Early weaned, those thin cows have a chance to gain some easy weight. Cuntrary tu th~ tendency to l~t the cows rough it a little more in the nice weather, saving feed for win- ter, is not a good idea. While some think every week of saving feed is money in the pocket, that is not ex- actly true once a producer has made the needed cuts in inventory. In summary, cows calving in March and April enter the third trimester in December and January, respectively. One can feed to the nutritional requirements of the beef cow; however, the many extenuat- ing circumstances in late pregnancy and winter simply may not allow the replenishing of condition and muscle lost during a very dry sum- mer. This process starts a vicious cycle, where if the cows are calved too thin, the calves will be deprived of adequate colostrum, calves get sick and the cows do not rebreed on time to maintain a 365-day calving interval. If this cycle repeats itself next year, the culling rate goes up and the overall health of the cow, and particularly the calf, is put in jeop- ardy. So do not skimp in hopes of saving a few dollars. Reduce the qow numbers to meet the current es- timated feed inventory. This all seems to be rather com- plicated, but Mother Nature is tough, and running a business with Mother Nature as the primary part- ner is not easy. Passive planning and response is not the answer. Decide today to visit your local Extension agent or nutritionist. In- vest in feed cautiously, and target feed for the best cow response. Ag- gressively deal with inventory num- bers, plan for next spring now and remember that when the weather is nice and the cows are thin, feed them.

Stark Co. Bison injures visitor in TRNP THEODORE ROOSEVELT NA- TIONAL PARK - A visitor was in- jured by a bison in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park on Friday, June 30. Michael Turk, 65, from Juneau, Alaska, was hiking on the Buckhorn Trail between 9-10:30 p.m. CDT to take photos of the sunset. He had en- countered a bison on the way to his photo location and 2ave it a wide berth. He stopped to take additional photos of another bison he encoun- tered while returning to Juniper Campground. Turk recalled that sometime while he was photograph- ing the bison, it turned toward him and charged. He lost consciousness and sustained a large laceration on his left inner thigh in addition to other cuts and bruises, according to a July 7 statement from park head- quarters in Medora. Turk was able to hike to the trail- head, where he saw another bison. He climbed a short distance up a nearby butte and began calling for help. Hearing Turk's calls for help, seven campers arrived at the trail- head and found Turk about 50 yards away, with a bison between them. Unable to haze the bison away, one of the campers discharged a handgun into the ground, scaring the bison out of the area. The group helped Turk to the trailhead, dressed his wound, and drove him to meet emergency re- sponders. McKenzie County Sheriffs Office and park rangers met the group near the park entrance. A McKenzie County ambulance transported Turk to the hospital. He vCas'Jfred~d at McKenzie County Hospital and.later The deadline for submitted copy and stories and all ad orders is noon on Fridays.
