 By Mary Struck, Publisher/editor 
Beer presenters representing breweries from across the country,as well as tasters seeking samplesof their creations, descended uponKohler over the Memorial Dayweekend to attend DestinationKohler’s newest special event:The Kohler Festival of Beer,which featured beer-themed hap- penings, homebrew competitions,and tastings.I caught up with Scott Silvestri,Director of Marketing for Destina-tion Kohler, as he anxiously ma-neuvered among some of thecrowd of about 450 people who at-tended the Cheers to Beers grandtasting in the Design Center. “Ihaven't seen the final numbersyet,” said Silvestri, “but I think theevent sold out.”I found a more relaxed Silvestrienjoying the Sunday night signa-ture event, Blues, Brews andBBQ, where he confirmed that allfive events did indeed sell out.“You just never know what to ex- pect for an inaugural event, but ithas exceeded our wildest expecta-tions,” Silvestri said. He addedthat many of the festival-goerscame up from Chicago, and eventorganizers just might have to con-sider doubling the offerings nextyear.The lineup for the three-dayevent included: Eggs & Kegs breakfast buffet; Cheers to Beersgrand tasting; Pub Pairings semi-nar; Blackwolf Run Beer Cup goltournament; Homebrewers Com- petition; Blues, Brews and BBQ party; and more.

Greetings,I am pleased to wel-come Brett Edgerle tothe vacant seat on theKohler Village Board.Brett has been a villageresident for over 25years and is active inthe community through the Kohler FireDepartment and KPAL. Brett and Deb,his wife, have a grade school daughter,Asha, who is a great source of pride to both.As a member of the board, Brett will be invaluable. As a civil engineer, he haslearned to assess projects from a prag-matic position and then move ahead andget the job done. Along with this, comeshis ability to deal with people in a posi-tive way. As a member of the PropertyCommittee, Brett’s skills will be highlyvalued. Already, in a positive manner, hehas become a contributing member of that Committee and the Village Board. Iam most appreciative of Brett for accept-ing the appointment to fill the vacancy onthe board.In many communities throughout WI,as well as Kohler, there has been an in-creased concern regarding the Ordinancesfor dealing with sexual offenders. Re-cently, there was a concern in the villagewhich was handled expeditiously by theKohler Police Department. In an attemptto enact general regulations to promotethe health, safety, and welfare, and con-venience of the public pursuant to WIStatute 61.34 and to place a high priorityon the safety of minors within the Villageof Kohler, the Village Board amendedSection 10.36.010, Definitions, and Cre-ating Section 10.36.020 G., Sexual Of-fender Loitering Prohibited, of theMunicipal Code of the Village of Kohler.These approved enhancements to the Or-dinance further restrict movement by sex-ual offenders by restricting loiteringwithin 500 feet of schools or other loca-tions in the village where children areknown to congregate. It is also gratifyingto see the community involvement, net-working and interest in seeing such issuesaddressed in a cooperative manner.THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT!!!Please note that a Decennial Censuswill be conducted in 2010 and the time of the monthly Village Board Meeting has been changed:MONTHLY VILLAGE BOARDMEETINGSTHIRD MONDAY OF THE MONTH5:30 PM – VILLAGE HALLALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTENDUntil next time……..Steve Reinbacher Village Board President
