Benefit walk drawsnearly 1,000 participants
Volume 5, Number11
JUNE, 2010
Bus routechangeapproved by Village ontrial basis
The Kohler Village Board approved a re-quest by two senior residents to alter theSheboygan City Transit bus service routefrom Sheboygan Falls through Kohler on atrial basis beginning June 1, 2010 and end-ing October 9.The bus will travel the entire length of School St. through the West 4 area near Aspen Ct., then follow its usual route untilWillow Creek Dr., where the route deviatesslightly again bringing the bus past the con-dominiums on Woodlake Rd. before exitingonto Highland Dr. to return to Sheboygan.The change will provide easier access for many elderly residents and anyone wishingto use alternative transportation. A more di-rect route to Deer Trace Shopping Center isalso being considered for future study.What began as an idea to organize a littlewalk around the school with Kohler schoolclassmates of 5-yr-old Tara Uselding toshow support for her fight with cancer, grewinto a benefit walk around Kohler that drewnearly 1,000 participants to Roosevelt Park in on May 22, 2010. Though the final num- bers weren’t in as of this printing, the benefitis estimated to have raised approximately$21,500, according to organizer, KerriRoeder.A rainy Friday gave way to mild temper-atures and dry weather for the 1- and 3-milewalk, brat fry, bake sale, raffle, and silentauction. Roosevelt Park was awash with asea of yellow as participants in their “TeamTara” T-shirts awaited the kickoff announce-ment by Tara’s 8-yr old brother, Ty. Tarachose the T-shirt design from among contestentries submitted by Kohler school students.In April, the Uselding family was in themidst of preparing for a mid-May move toColorado where Scott, a major in the U.S.Air Force, had started a new job at LowryAir Force Base. Shawna took Tara to thedoctor for what she thought was minior di-gestive issues, but the couple were stunnedto learn that Tara had cancer. She was diag-nosed with a rare fast-growing and highlymalignant form of cancer called rhab-domyosarcoma. Scott flew back and joinedShawna at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukeewhere Tara was immediately put on a 5-dayround of chemotherapy to shrink tumors inher abdomen that were growing by the dayand too large to operate on.When Kohler resident Kerri Roeder heard the devastating news, she jumped intoaction organizing a team of volunteers thatcame to be known as “Team Tara.” Ken An-derson set up a website at TeamTara.netwhere online donations could be acceptedThe site also links to a CaringBridge pagewhere the family keeps everyone updated onTara’s progress.In four weeks time, the team of volun-teers organized an event that normally takesmonths of preparation. Businesses and manyVillage residents donated money, time anditems needed for the benefit walk. Mean-while, Tara had to endure numerous tests,IVs, tubes, a blood transfusion, discomfortfrom the growing tumors pressing againsther lungs, chemotherapy, and being told shewould lose her hair. But she could be seen atthe benefit in her hot pink hat happily weav-ing between adults to chase after her littlefriends, frowning only when she was inter-rupted to pose for yet another photograph.Tara, who is one of a set of triplets, hasmany months of chemotherapy, followed bysurgery and radiation ahead of her. Scott isable to commute between Colorado andWisconsin at two-week intervals, but Village

residents have stepped in to offer help andsupport so mom and dad can focus on help-ing Tara get well enough to make the moveto Colorado along with siblings Dru andDayne, 5, Cameron, 9, and Ty, 8.The team of organizers led by KerriRoeder include Maureen Brunner-Hun-sucker, Gena Gebler, Suzie Barrock, JaimieKurtz, Jerry Baird (and crew), Kayla Tru-man, Amy Zufelt, Ken Anderson, AlvidaGroom, Rich Uselding.

A requirement for the PGAService Award Ceremony is that the event beheld in an air-conditioned facility. Rather than lose this tremendous opportunity to hostthis star-studded event to a Milwaukee loca-tion, which will have an audience of 900 to1000 people, it was unanimous with the Vil-lage Board to move forward with installingair-conditioning in the Memorial Hall The-atre. Noteworthy past recipients of the PGAService Award include George Bush andBob Hope.The funding for this project, which is$139K, will be shared in by the PGA, the

Kohler Company and the Village of Kohler.The PGA has offered to fund $15K of this project. The balance of the cost for this proj-ect will be evenly split between the Kohler Company and the Village of Kohler. Know-ing that this project was not budgeted for inthe Village’s 2010 Budget, the Kohler Com- pany has generously offered to front the vil-lage’s portion which is 62K, and offer 0%financing for five years, with payment com-mencing in 2011. This is a win-win scenariofor the Village of Kohler, Kohler Companyand Kohler Schools. All three entities will benefit from this upgrade to the theatre. Thevillage’s portion is close to the amount theKohler Village Board approved severalyears ago when we were considering split-ting the cost for air-conditioning of the the-atre equally between the Village of Kohler,Kohler Company and Kohler Schools. The project will be completed in time for thePGA Service Award Ceremony and theMen’s PGA Tournament, August 9-15.The ordinance regulating the number of dogs and cats a village resident may have re-siding at their property has recently been up-dated. The update to this ordinance allowsfor an additional dog or cat, with the consentof the adjacent homeowners, and an appli-cation for a variance to the Village of Kohler. The Kohler Village Board believesthis change is responsive to the wants of petowners while respecting the rights of their surrounding neighbors. A homeowner’s con-sent and request for variance form is beingdeveloped and will be available soon in theKohler Village Hall.Until next time……Steve Reinbacher Village President
