Community gives input onEbben Fields future
Submitted by Dr. Robert Kobylski, Kohler School District Administrator 
On behalf of the Board of Education,the Ebben Field Master Planning SteeringCommittee wishes to thank local citizensfor sharing their thoughts and vision for the future of Ebben Field during the re-cent Community Input sessions. Many in-novative and exciting ideas were offeredfor consideration.Currently, the Steering Committee isanalyzing data related to student partici- pation in extracurricular activities withthe aim of forecasting present and futurefacility needs. Once complete, the needsassessment will allow our Project Man-ager/Architect to begin the developmentof the actual master plan and/or layout for the new Ebben Field. This is a complex process as a number of decision variablesexist such as style, type and color of thetrack, grandstands and press box, conces-sion and restroom facilities, fencing, lo-cation and orientation of athletic fields,etc.We anticipate providing our stakehold-ers with a project construction timeline atthe same time a master plan is presentedto the Board of Education. Once again,the community will have an opportunityto share their input as the actual master  plan is taken under consideration by theBoard.The Steering Committee is committedto the continuity of athletic programmingas we move from one phase of the projectto the next. As the master plan takesshape, know that athletic events will con-tinue to be held at Ebben Field. For the2009-2010 season, pedestrian traffic to-and-from the portable bleachers will bemore fluid now that the drainage and basetrack work has been completed. We real-ize that many constituents were hopefulthat the final track surface and permanentgrandstands would be available for theupcoming school year; however, a projectof this magnitude requires a high degreeof due diligence and research to ensure afinal product that meets, and even ex-ceeds, community expectations. We ap- preciate your patience!The Steering Committee wishes to em- phasize that community input is a

 process, not an event, and hopes that allstakeholders will continue to voice their ideas as the project moves forward. Com-ments can be forwarded directly to thedistrict office, or in person at a monthlymeeting of the Board of Education. Thisis an exciting time for our community as,in the coming months we look forward tosharing the vision for the new EbbenField.

Greetings,School is out, familyvacations are being planned, and theweather has shownsigns of being summer-like. Your VillageBoard recognizes theneed to provide “entertainment-type” ac-tivities throughout the Village. One of these is the traditional July 4th SousaConcert and Fireworks in Ravine Park.The Sousa Concert starts at 8:30 p.m., fol-lowed by fireworks. Please mark this pop-ular event on your calendar – and bethere!!!Continuing with the concert theme, itis exciting to report that the Village Boardhas accepted the recommendation of theTourism Committee for sponsorship of aVillage of Kohler Concert Series. This isfunded with American Club and Inn onWoodlake room tax dollars, which meansthat there are no expenses for the localtaxpayers. Details on the venues, sched-ules and types of music are being final-ized. Please check the future editions of 
The Kohler Villager 
and other local newsmedia for details.This spring, as in the past, many Vil-lage residents received yard mulch, whichwas derived from the tree trimmings andremoval. For 2009, approximately 279cubic yards were delivered to local resi-dents. The mulch was delivered by theDepartment of Public Works. Due to theresources expended in the processing andthe related costs for delivery of the mulch,the Village Board of Kohler has imple-mented a five-dollar nominal fee per cubic yard to cover expenses. For thespring of 2010, please contact NoellMachata, DPW Administrative Secretary,if you would like your name placed on thelist. Distribution is on a first-come first-serve basis.In today’s challenging economy, it’sencouraging for any community to see theaddition of new businesses. At the JuneBoard Meeting, the Village Board ap- proved a special use permit for “M” at theDeer Trace Shopping Center. “M” is a giftand home décor emporium. Thank you for stopping to welcome them as you con-sider some of those “home décor” possi- bilities.In the past, along with the VillageBoard, I have shared much information onthe Lost Woods Park Shelter. The re-sponses have been extremely positive,followed by much excitement and enthu-siasm. Very soon, the plans will be final-ized and submitted for public bids.Shortly thereafter, the Village Board willselect a contractor and the project should begin during the month of July. In work-ing with the Kohler Co., we were able tomaintain the aesthetic character and de-sign of the current “pump house.” At thesame time, the new Lost Woods Park Shelter will be a facility that will serve theneeds of our sporting youth and thosewho want to gather there for a celebration.Presently, the Village Board BuildingCommittee is studying the need to up-grade the two children’s outdoor pools atthe Youth Center. The present pools haveserved the Village of Kohler for close to50 years. As an improvement to the pres-ent structures and in addressing the inher-ent safety issues, the preliminary planscall for a zero-entry to three- foot depth pool with several water park features.These upgrades will greatly increase thechildren’s pools functionality and create amuch safer environment for the children.Please feel free to contact me or any Vil-lage Board member with your commentsregarding this project.Best of wishes to you and our familiesfor an enjoyable and safe 4th of July!!!

Village residents encouraged to reserve tennis courts
Kelsey Wright advancesto national finals inWashington D.C.
Kelsey Wright, an eighth-grader at Kohler School, was selected as a second alternate fromWisconsin to participate in the National HistoryDay competition in Washington, D.C. Kelsey,shown in her “Rosie the Riveter” costume alongwith the poster she made based on hours of re-search, was among ten Kohler School studentswho participated in the competition on the statelevel. Her one-person performance was giventwice in Madison in mid-May during the prelim-inaries and again in the finals in front of differentsets of adult judges.In her entry entitled “Rosie the Riveter, Doc-tor, Lawyer, Farmer, Oh My,” Kelsey imperson-ated Rosie the Riveter, one of the hundreds of thousands of women who went to work in ship-yards and airplane factories during World War IIand who forever changed American attitudes to-ward women in the workplace. Rosie and thoselike her opened the doors of opportunity for women everywhere, and that is why Kelsey choseRosie as “a significant figure in American his-tory” for her presentation.
