New direction needed at DNR Dick Ellis Candidate for governor Tim Michels indicated in October that if elected he would break up the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to serve 1) business and 2 ) the hunting and fishing, or sporting community. “It’s not my opinion that the DNR is broken,” Michels said. “It’s what I hear everywhere I go.” Better days.

OWO Experts Kiesow, Luthens, offer books

On Wisconsin Outdoors

John Luthens, left, and Jerry Kiesow at the Cedarburg Library these week signing their books.

Jerry Kiesow, a regular writer for On Wisconsin Outdoors, has written his second book: “Photos, Poems, and a Little Bit of Prose,” and what a book.  Not that it is large, it isn’t, only 58 pages, but all is all  four-color, with 59 photos, not including the covers and epilogue, to go with and illustrate 27 poems.  Poems from the epic “A Story of a River,” 1400 words, or the short, “A Cow, WOW!” only 13 words, all have at least one image to accompany the words and enhance the entire content - remember a photo is worth 1000 words.  Then, at the end of each composition, there are a few words of prose to explain the whys, and/or wherefores of each offering – thus the title, “Photos, Poetry, and a Little Bit of Prose.”

This is not a book you will read once and then put on the shelf.  It is pretty enough to be a coffee table book and that is exactly where it should stay.  Why?  For example: what if you are feeling down and need a smile, maybe the photo and words of “Frogs and Fences” will bring that up-turn to the corners of your mouth.  Or, if you hunt, “Up A Tree” certainly will. 

Ever wonder about the big bang theory?  Check out how Kiesow looks at Creation and God.  Like kids?  They are here.  Fishing?  It’s here too.  You name a subject; Kiesow has probably touched on it.

 If you are looking for something new to read, for a book that can be read in one setting or in short spurts (over and over again).  For a book that shows and tells you the many ways this man has/does enjoy/sees God’s world.  In other words, a book that is different, give a look at this one.
“Photos, Poems, and a Little Bit of Prose,” published by Orange Hat Publishing in Waukesha, combines three forms of artistry - photography, poetry, and prose.  I do not believe any other book has ever done that before.

You can order books online from: amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and books-a-million.com .  Or, you can look at portions of this book on his website: www.jerrykiesowoc.com .  Then, if you want an autographed copy, email him.  The book costs $15.00 if he hands it to you and $19.56 if he mails it.  All prices include the personally signed book, tax, shipping and handling.

If you email, please use the word “book” in the subject line.  Thanks.    

Keep a good thought!

A quick glance into the waters of Taconite Creek:

Fishing is like reading a novel. The reader and the fisherman set out to catch a piece of enjoyment from life. It can be nothing more than a cane pole and a length of line, the sun sparkling on a backyard pond and the rising of a bass beneath shaded willows. But it can just as quickly gravitate into a lifetime of specialized equipment and a search for the deep-rooted meaning hidden in uncharted trout waters.

Taconite Creek is a story of opening an iron mine in a virgin wilderness. It about man versus nature, but more importantly, it is about man versus life. Taconite Creek explores the balance between passion and obsession.

Fishing, like reading a novel, is about exploring for yourself instead of settling for what others tell you. Two memorable characters in the book tell it like it is:

“Uncle Jack and Ernie: arguing in dizzying circles about political direction and iron – about anything and everything really. But mostly, it was about fly fishing, mostly, it was about Taconite Creek.”

Reading a novel, like fishing and like life itself, is meant to be an adventure.

Taconite Creek is available on Amazon, at CablePublishing.com., or by contacting the author at Luthens@hotmail.com.
