Harlan grew up in Granton and has been married to Judy since 1973. They have two children and four grandchildren. At one time a milk hauler, Harlan rolled a truck and decided to change occupations. Following his education, he was office manager for Thomas Electric and then went to DataFlow in 1983 where he became a partner and is now an owner. He soon became involved with the Wisconsin Association of Accountants, first as a board member, then as President. A member of the National Society of Accountants since 1994, Harlan has served as Second Vice-President and First Vice-President of NSA before becoming President, the first ever from Wisconsin.

Creating Gluten Free Bakery Goods in Marshfield
Jan Rasmussen is well known to most of us as the former proprietor of Janís Optical. Her latest venture is JJís Bakery, located right next to the optical shop on West Doege. Jan is modest about her own baking skills but hires good people, she says, including Joy Messerschmidt who is her gluten-free baker. Gluten-free flour is challenging to work with, and expensive, three times the cost of regular flour. Jan became interested in gluten-free because of a family member with celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by consuming gluten, a form of protein found in wheat, barley, & rye. There is a long list of symptoms including abdominal pain, anemia, and diarrhea. (See for information.) Jan emphasizes the importance of contacting your physician if you think you may have the disease.

Jan actually has two bakeries, one regular and one gluten-free. It is necessary to go to great lengths to isolate the two from each other. They have separate air filtering systems, separate packaging, and even a separate sewer system to avoid any possible cross contamination. Joy changes shoes and puts on special clothing when entering the gluten-free bakery. Jan is working towards certification from the National Celiac Foundation. Her primary goal is to make tasty gluten-free foods that donít taste like cardboard. To demonstrate, Jan gave us gluten-free cookie samples. They were a great success. Very tasty. Jan invited us in to see her bakery.
