Happy New Year!
2010 lies in front of us as a fresh canvas
on a painter’s easel. As individuals we may
ask: What will I add to this painting? Will
I be a part of accomplishing the goals that
have been laid out? Will I be a part of the
solution of accomplishing these goals? As
Village Board members we may ask: Will
our constituents be satisfied with our efforts
to move the Village of Kohler a bit more
into the future??? These are the type of
things that your Village Board wrestles with
on a regular basis.
Your Village Board is convinced that it
has approved a very sensible budget for
2010. Easily, we could have increased the
mill rate by a percentage point here or there,
without any criticism from the residents.
But, we knew that it made more sense to
save the local taxpayer as many dollars as
possible in light of the present economy.
Much uncertainty remains in regards to
the nation’s economic recovery. Recently,
the market indicators have been positive,
but there is no guarantee that this will con-
tinue – and it will take a period of time be-
fore any of us are made whole again. Our
2010 budget is indicative of this philosophy.
Yet, we believe that this philosophy will
allow the village to move forward and con-
tinue to maintain, enhance and add to the
amenities provided.
As your Village Board President I
strongly believe that we are all stakeholders
of the Village of Kohler. And our question
has to be: “If it was our business and we
were writing the checks for its operation,
what would we do?” By applying an own-
ership philosophy, we collectively insure
that we will receive a sound value for the
goods and services that we pay for. This is
the same philosophy that is applied to our
personal lives.
Many of the challenges that face us in the
future are unknown. To the surprise of no
one, the revenue that is raised from the room
taxes at the American Club and Inn on
Woodlake will be less than it has in the past.
A significant portion of this tax has been re-
turned to the Village Board for offsetting the
taxes of the Village of Kohler. This will cre-
ate a negative effect on the Village’s Gen-
eral Fund for 2011 and the Tourism Budget
for 2011. I am confident the Village Board
will arrive at the right solutions in dealing
with this decline as the year unfolds and the
impact is fully understood.
The challenges of the future are un-
From the Village Board President . . .
known, but not overwhelming. Your Village
Board members will deal with these con-
cerns as they arise. As in the past, the prob-
lems will be addressed in a calm and
effective manner. Challenges present oppor-
tunities – and it is the manner in which we
address those opportunities that will make
the difference.
This is an exciting time to be your Village
Board President. I look forward to 2010
with great anticipation. May the picture that
each one of us paints for 2010 be the mosaic
that we will admire in the future.
My personal best wishes to you and your
family for all the best in 2010!
Until next time…

Meet the members of the
Kohler Fire Department
Message from the president . . .
Dear Village of Kohler residents,
With the main part of winter upon us, I
would like to talk about the safety of ice both
on Woodlake and the Sheboygan River. Win­
ter activities such as ice skating, hiking, and
cross country skiing may lead you to cross
the lake or river. I would like to remind every­
one that weather can change rapidly in Wis­
consin so please be aware of your
surroundings. The ice may seem safe, but
the moving river waters and changes in tem­
perature can deteriorate conditions over
time. Always double­check the thickness be­
fore venturing across the ice.
Hypothermia and frostbite are also two
concerns while engaging in winter activities.
They can creep up quickly if you are not
properly dressed for conditions. Factors that
can make you susceptible include: prolonged
exposure to a cold or wet environment, being
very old or very young, underlying medical
conditions, alcohol use, and certain medica­
tions or drugs. Signs and symptoms of gen­
eral hypothermia are cold skin temperature,
shivering, decreasing mental status and
motor function and dizziness. Frostbite can
be prevented easily by covering all exposed
skin in below freezing temperatures. If you
suspect you or someone you are with is in
danger of a cold weather injury, move in­
doors and seek appropriate medical atten­
Lastly, the Fire Department would also
like to ask residents that live near a fire hy­
drant to “adopt” that fire hydrant. This
means that you help clear snow from around
the hydrant after a snowfall. The Fire De­
partment and Village of Kohler would
greatly appreciate the help, as it will ensure
safety and save time and tax dollars. Many
of you have assisted with this in the past and
it has been a tremendous help.

The Kohler Police Athletic League
(KPAL) will be holding its brat fry on Sun-
day, February 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
at the Kohler firehouse on Highland Drive.
The mission of KPAL is to sponsor and
support local programs involving Kohler
youth in sports and programs promoting
good citizenship. This past year KPAL do-
nations included the Kohler scouting pro-
gram and awards of two high school
scholarships to encourage our kids to grow
to reach their potential. KPAL also sponsors
the Kohler Pool Summer Swim Meet,
Kohler Soccer Club, youth baseball and flag
football leagues, summer soccer and basket-
ball programs. This year they were a major
contributor toward startup costs and ongoing
expenses for the newly formed 6th, 7th and
8th grade football league. For the year 2009,
the KPAL donated in excess of $12,000 to
the youth of the Village.
KPAL members will be going door-to-
door in the Village selling tickets for this im-
portant event, or contact your favorite KPAL
member if you were missed. Better yet, join
the KPAL and become involved with their
projects to improve opportunities for Kohler
Though many KPAL functions are held
at the firehouse, they’re not to be confused
with the Kohler Fire Department. KPAL is
separate from the Fire Department, but the
two organizations cooperate in many ways.
The KPAL uses the firehouse for meetings,
the brat fry, and Bingo night, which is held
in the evening on the fourth Sunday of the
month, March through November.
See a KPAL member for advance tickets
for the brat fry at one dollar each, and be-
come eligible for door prize drawings,
which include gift certificates as well as
many other prizes. The grand prize this year
is a $250 Kohler Hospitality certificate. The
tickets are also good for one dollar in trade
on the purchase of food and drink the day of
the brat fry. They include discount coupons
redeemable at Quiznos Subs, Bread & Bean
Eatery, Falls Firehouse Pizza and Cousins
KPAL is proud of what they do for the
youth in the Village and appreciate all sup-
porters previously mentioned, and hope res-
idents will help support their programs this
year by attending the brat fry. Anyone who
would like to join KPAL or needs tickets to
the brat fry may call Jim Tesmer at 457-
4722. For more information about this
event, please call Rob Vander Schaaf at
(920) 467-4657.

Kohler Elementary School third grade
Girl Scout Troop 8415 made a ginger-
bread structure for the 12th Annual Gin-
gerbread Village Festival held at the
Waelderhaus through the month of De-
cember. The troop created a gingerbread
house modeled after a historic site they
hope to visit in the future – the birthplace
of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the
Girl Scout movement in the United States.
Built in 1821, the house has been ele-
gantly restored to reflect the 1880s and is
a National Historic Landmark. Saved
from demolition by the Girl Scouts, the
Regency-style house has now been re-
turned to its 1886 glory and is open to the
public for tours. Girl Scout troops travel
from across the United States year-round
to take part in programs and learn more
the organization’s founder.

AJ Bocchini presented with
dedication award/scholarship
By Mary Struck, Editor/Publisher
The Bocchini family was taken by surprise
prior to the December 21 varsity boys basket-
ball game when AJ was presented with an
“Our Rudy” award and a college scholarship
check for $2,025.
Kohler football coach Matt Zavada had
nominated AJ for the national High School
Football Rudy Award named after Daniel
“Rudy” Ruettiger, a former collegiate football
player whose passion for football drove him
to overcome repeated obstacles to finally ful-
fill his dream of playing for Notre Dame. “I've
always told others that if I put A.J.’s heart in
every single one of my players then we would
be state champs every year,” wrote Zavada in
his nomination on the official website at
www.highschoolrudyawards.com. AJ re-
ceived more than 5,600 supportive votes.
The Bocchinis initially thought AJ quali-
fied as a semi-finalist but discovered they had
been mistaken, and thanked everyone for their
votes. Someone on the Bocchini’s email list
suggested to Lisa’s sister, Cindy Howley, that
it would be great if everyone contributed to-
ward putting together their own “Rudy
Award.” Cindy fired off the email to everyone
but the Bocchinis, and ten days later, a check
for $2,025 and a trophy donated by Crown
Trophy (owned by Kohler residents Aaron
and Jeanne Chorowicz) awaited AJ’s accept-
ance in a ceremony before the December 21
varsity game between Kohler and Sheboygan
Lutheran. The Bocchinis were in the dark
about the whole thing up until the time AJ was
called out onto the court amid standing ova-
tions from the players and crowd.
The words of former Kohler Schools EEN
Aide Susan Dexheimer in her nomination
story sums up sentiments felt by all who’ve
watched AJ grow up. She wrote: “I have had
the pleasure of knowing AJ Bocchini since he
entered four-year-old Kindergarten . . . and
watching him grow from a scared little four
year old, just coming off of one of his many
surgeries and growing into the strong, deter-
mined, committed, young man he is today. . .
. Wherever he goes he spreads sunshine and
exemplifies the true meaning of what I believe
a “Rudy” award winner is made of: Character,
Courage, Contribution, Commitment; this
truly defines AJ Bocchini.”

arship check.

state tournament.
A Special Thank You from the Family of
“our Rudy”
We would like to thank everyone who
made Monday, December 21 a night we will
remember forever. It wouldn't have been
possible if Coach Matt Zavada hadn't nom-
inated AJ for the Rudy Award. After that, it
became a mission for so many from all over
the community and family around the world.
It is a little scary that this secret was kept
from us by our family, friends, and the Vil-
Over the years we have felt blessed by
this wonderful community. It seems to have
taken AJ under its wing. We know that when
he walks to and from school or is in the
school, he is never alone.
Every time we left him at football or bas-
ketball practice, we knew that he was there
as part of the team and part of a family that
watches out for each other.
When we looked around the gym that
night, it was overwhelming to see the love
for our son. We saw people that have been
involved in his life from day one and many
more that have touched his life for 18 years.
It was perfect to have this celebration with
his teammates and family from Sheboygan
Lutheran, as they have been such a huge
part of AJ's life and memories.
AJ wants everyone to know that this
award should not be about him, but about
all his teams, coaches, and teammates.
We know that there were many people
who were unable to attend but were there in
spirit and celebration. We hope they too
know how much we appreciate them.
AJ asked that he keep the award in his
room so that every morning he can wake up
and look at it.
Thank you to everyone who helped make
him "Our Rudy".
Thank you and God Bless You

Road America
Expands Vintage
Motorcycle Weekend
Elkhart Lake, Wis.–Road America is adding
new event features to its annual vintage mo-
torcycle weekend. The Road America Vin-
tage Motorcycle Classic, June 11-13, 2010,
will mark the return of the American His-
toric Racing Motorcycle Association
(AHRMA) with the addition of motocross
and cross country and trials on courses built
specifically for vintage racing. “Road Amer-
ica is acknowledged as a world-class road
racing facility. When we discovered that the
property had hundreds of acres of prime off-
road terrain, we were pleased to add
AHRMA National Off-Road events to the
traditional schedule of road racing,” said
AHRMA Executive Director David Lam-
berth. Road America has a large motorcycle
racing fan base and always encourages vin-
tage motorsports enthusiasm. Track presi-
dent George Bruggenthies is pleased with
the expanded event, “The world of vintage
motorcycling is a vibrant, diverse family that
includes, collectors, restorers and enthusiasts
who just love to ride old bikes, as well as
racers. Road America is a great place to cel-
ebrate that spirit,” he stated.
Other race-weekend features are being
added through a partnership with longtime
motorcycle events producer Will Stoner.
Stoner is coordinating a swap meet, club cor-
rals and a moving bike show. “I’m excited
to have the opportunity to do a swap meet
and bike show in such a fantastic location.
The swap meet area is one of the best I’ve
seen, the roads are fantastic and Wisconsin
hospitality is great,” Stoner said. The swap
meet is open to all brands of motorcycles,
but is limited to bikes, parts, memorabilia
and tools. The on-site bike show will include
judging with awards presented in 13 classes
and a leisurely 40-mile ride through the sce-
nic Wisconsin countryside. Club Corrals will
be open to all vintage motorcycle clubs and
organizations wishing to have a corral spot
on Club Row. The spaces will be free to any
club that registers by June 2, 2010. Clubs
will be able to park their bikes, sell member-
ships and club regalia, as well as have a pic-
nic for club members. Participants only need
to purchase an advance event ticket to use
the Club Corrals.
Participant information for the swap
meet, bike show and club corral is available
by contacting Will Stoner: 440-591-5099,
willstoner@classicswapmeets.com. Other
event details will be posted as they become
available, at www.roadamerica.com.
Road America is a 640-acre, year-round
motorsports facility entering its 55th race
season. In addition to major race events,
Road America offers motorcycle and super-
moto schools, corporate ATV and karting
programs, and top-of-the-line hospitality.

listed above, are $370 through Feb. 15,

Series to race Road
America June 19, 2010
NASCAR announced that the Road
America course in Elkhart Lake has been
added to the 2010 Nationwide Series sched-
ule replacing the event at the Milwaukee
Mile, which has been struggling with finding
a new promoter for the financially troubled
track. The Road America 200 will take place
on June 19, 2010 at the 4.048-mile road
“We’re excited to be staying in Wisconsin
and racing in front of the passionate fans
there at a historic venue that’s new to our
NASCAR Nationwide Series,” said Steve
O’Donnell, NASCAR’s vice president of
racing operations. Director of the NASCAR
Nationwide Series, Joe Balash, said the race
will go on rain or shine. “Road America is a
very unique track that will provide great rac-
ing and will test driver skill and ability on
what is a very large course. And yes, we’ll
be prepared to race in the rain if necessary,”

Former Kohler
Quiznos reopens
as “Lettuce Eat”
By Mary Struck, editor/publisher
After eight years of operation, the Quiznos
Sub Shop, located at The Shops at Woodlake,
was closed and reopened on November 30,
2009 as “Lettuce Eat.” Owner of the former
Quiznos, Allan Loeffler, closed the Quiznos
store in he wake of pending issues the franchise
is having with franchisees around the country.
Loeffler had to scramble to reopen under a new
name with nothing but a lighted neon “Open”
sign above the door as he awaits new logo de-
sign and signage. Previous employees have
been retained, and Loeffler is hoping to get the
word out that he’s back in business as he
serves up a new menu of wraps, pitas, flat-
breads, premium salads and fresh soups, in-
cluding “meals in a bread bowl,” which
features daily hearty soups served in bowls
made of bread.
I had Loeffler make up four of his most
popular sandwiches, the Classic Grecian Gyro,
which is also a favorite among my family. (Be-
cause they’re not a common menu item in this
area, we usually settle for the frozen kits sold
at grocery stores). The Gyros received the
Struck family seal of approval, and I will def-
initely order one again. The freshness of the
chopped cucumber, tomato and red onion es-
pecially stood out. The prices will also keep me
coming back, with wraps going for $4.99 while
flatbreads are $5.49.
A big screen television has also been in-
stalled at Lettuce Eat to broadcast news and
sports stations, and Loeffler plans on adding an
Alto Shaam slow cook/hold oven which will
allow him to offer hot pork and beef. Daily spe-
cials are also being planned, including meat
loaf sandwiches and more.
Loeffler’s new menu has the approval of
his wife, Laura, who is a registered nurse in the
cardiac rehabilitation department at the Aurora
Health Center in Fond du Lac. Wraps and flat-
breads are low in fat, cholesterol and carbohy-
drates making them a healthier choice over loaf
breads. The abundant menu at Lettuce Eat also
offers vegetarian and seafood items, and salads
are served on a spring greens and lettuce blend.
Menus with fax forms are available at the store
for lunch orders, and Lettuce Eat also provides
catering, party trays and box lunches.

16 Teams to
compete in
Rotary Survey
Says... event
Sheboygan, WI -- All 16 teams for
the upcoming Rotary Survey Says...
event are signed up. The event,
being organized by the Sheboygan
Rotary Club will take place on Sat-
urday, February 6, 2010 at Kohler
Public School (333 Upper Road in
Kohler) in the gym, theater, and
cafeteria areas of the building. The
competition will be patterned after
the popular “Family Feud” televi-
sion game show.
Teams are made up of five play-
ers and include local companies
(Bemis, Maritime Insurance, May-
line, and Rockline), non-profit or-
ganizations (churches, Great
Marriages for Sheboygan County,
Sheboygan County Chamber of
Commerce, and United Way),
schools (Lakeland College, North
High, Pigeon River 5th graders,
South High), and professionals (at-
torneys, bankers, dentists, and ob-
gyn’s). In the Rotary Survey Says...
event, contestants will identify the
most popular responses to survey
questions posed to 100 county resi-
dents. Questions will be general in-
terest as in the original show and
Sheboygan area specific. A sample
question is “name a part of a fish
you don’t eat:” eyeballs - 46, bones
- 21, gills - 18, scales - 10, and head
- 5 to total the 100 people surveyed.
The competition is a single elim-
ination format with the first three
rounds to take place in the gym
with four matches going on simul-
taneously. The first matches begin
at 4:00 p.m.
Bleachers will allow attendees to
view all four matches. The final
three rounds of play will take place
in the theater.
In keeping with the 70’s game
show theme for the event, an adult
and kids plate dinner will be avail-
able for purchase. Final details of
the menu are being determined.
Available ala carte throughout
the evening will be desserts, snack
type items, and beverages.
Entertainment will be offered in
the cafeteria area to encourage both
players and event attendees to make
this a family outing. Bean bag toss,
face painting, balloon creations,
and a coloring contest have already
been confirmed.
Tickets for the Rotary Survey
Says... event are $5 and can be pur-
chased by calling 208-1343.
Monies raised from the Rotary
Survey Says... event will fund local
and global projects. The club sup-
ports local and international proj-
ects and has contributed in excess
of $600,000 to date. Locally, they
have supported: the new Taylor
Drive park renovation, Rotary
Riverfront Park, Harbor Center Ma-
rina promenade, student scholar-
ships, Rebuilding Together, Meals
on Wheels; and internationally;
polio eradication, equipment to pro-
vide safe drinking water, and Shel-
ter Boxes in response to natural
disasters. The Sheboygan Rotary
Club is Sheboygan area’s largest
Rotary club with approximately
140 members.
The club meets at the Elks Club
in Sheboygan every Monday at
noon for a buffet luncheon that also
includes a business meeting and
speaker. For more information

Deer Abatement update
The Kohler Police Department is continuing its
program of controlling the deer population in the
Village of Kohler. The department has again re-
ceived a DNR permit to control the herd and will
hopefully be able to keep the population in check
this winter. In addition, several years ago the Vil-
lage Board enacted an ordinance prohibiting the
feeding of deer anywhere in the Village of
Kohler. The ordinance is an attempt at keeping
the deer out of the residential areas of the village.
The ordinance prohibits the artificial feeding of
deer with corn or grains, salt or minerals, or fruits
and vegetables placed there for the purpose of
feeding or attracting deer. By not feeding the
deer, hopefully they will stay in their normal
habitat and not encroach on the residential areas.
The Kohler Police Department continues to sup-
ply Masterlock trigger locks to any Village Res-
ident that would like one. In addition to the
trigger locks provided, the Kohler Police Depart-
ment also is participating with the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice gunlock grant program, Project
Childsafe. These gunlocks are the cable style and
anyone may request up to three gunlocks from
the Kohler Police Department through that pro-

The Rivers Beneath Our Feet
Storm Sewers Storm Sewers
Where does the
Storm Sewer Go?
The water that enters
storm drains typically
carries pollutants such
as fertilizers, oil,
and leaves. Where
does it all go? . . .
It goes into your
nearby lake,
stream or wet-
f you look in the street outside of your home or office and search the
parking lots around town, you will probably find storm sewer inlets. Did
you ever wonder where they go?
A common misconception about storm sewers is that they go to a waste-
water treatment plant. This is not the case. Storm sewers transport stormwater
(rain and melting snow) to the nearest river, lake, stream or wetland.
Stormwater often contains materials found on streets and parking lots such
as oil, antifreeze, gasoline, soil, litter, pet wastes, fertilizers, pesticides, leaves
and grass clippings. When these materials enter lakes
and streams, they become pollutants that pollute the
water, kill fish and close beaches.
Let’s follow STORMIE and see how storm sewers
provide a direct link between our daily
activities and water pollution in lakes,
streams, rivers and wetlands.
Follow the simple clean-water tips inside
and become part of the solution to
water quality problems.

With thousands of storm sewer inlets around town, stormwater is a major contibutor to
water pollution in urban areas. Although each storm sewer inlet contributes only a small
number of pollutants, when added together, pollution concentrations often exceed the
limits established for industries and wastewater treatment plants. If the pollutants entering
each of these inlets can be reduced, so will the pollution in local streams and lakes.

ccording to federal regulations, many cities and industries must reduce
water pollution from storm sewers. We can help by taking steps around
the home to increase the amount of water that soaks into the ground.
This reduces the amount of water flowing into the street. Here’s what
you can do:
For more information about stormwater pollution and what you can
do to reduce it, contact the Deparment of Natural Resources or your
county UW-Extension or Land Conservation office.
Plant trees, shrubs or ground covers.
Maintain a healthy lawn.
Redirect down spouts from paved areas to vegetated areas.
Install gravel trenches along driveways or patios.
Use porous materials such as wooden planks or bricks for
walkways and patios.
If building a new home, have the driveway and walkways
graded so water flows onto lawn areas.
Use a rain barrel to catch and store water for gardens.
Wash your car on the lawn, not the driveway, or take your
car to a commercial car wash.

Preschool open house
and registration January
10 at the John Michael
Kohler Arts Center
Imagine your young child learning and
exploring the world through an arts-based
curriculum in a nurturing, creative environ-
ment. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center
Preschool offers that and so much more.
Plan now to attend the open house 1-3 p.m.,
Sunday, Jan. 10, to meet with teachers, see
the classrooms, and learn more about this
state-certified and licensed program.
“Our Preschool offers an early-childhood
experience like no other.” said Joe Madeira,
deputy director for external affairs. “The
Arts Center’s exhibitions and performing
arts programs offer unique opportunities to
engage, inspire and teach young children.
Furthermore, while we are uniquely situated
to offer an arts experience that is beyond
compare, we also offer a fundamental skills
development curriculum that exceeds state
Separate programs for 3- to 4-year olds
and 4- to 5-year-olds are offered. The cur-
riculum for the younger students supports
early learning through the arts and fosters
children’s understanding of themselves,
their friends, and the world. Students can at-
tend either two or three mornings per week.
The curriculum for the 4- and 5-year-olds
builds on elements contained in the first year
and further emphasizes critical thinking and
kindergarten readiness. This older group of
students attends four mornings a week.
John Michael Kohler Arts Center Pre-
school teachers have diverse backgrounds in
the arts and education. Students enjoy light-
filled classrooms, art galleries, a performing
arts theater, ceramics and printmaking stu-
dios, a caterer’s kitchen, the historic John M.
Kohler house, and more. Special guests, in-
cluding performing and visual artists and
naturalists, and field trips such as visits to an
outdoor sculpture site, an apple orchard, the
farmers’ market, and other locations in our
communities, further complement the Arts
Center Preschool experience.
The John Michael Kohler Arts Center
Preschool is a curriculum-based private pre-
school, certified and licensed through the
State of Wisconsin, Department of Children
and Families.
Children currently enrolled in the Pre-
school and their younger siblings may be

How to Let
Kids be Kids
By Principal Susan Jaberg
The tendency of parents to organize
their children’s lives like Admiral Ram-
say plotting the invasion of Normandy is
a phenomenon that Alvin Rosenfeld,
M.D., the former head of the child psy-
chiatry training program at Stanford Uni-
versity in California and author of The
Overscheduled Child, calls hyper-parent-
ing. It’s a form of “childrearing mad-
ness,” Rosenfeld says, with no proven
scientific advantages. Even the central
tenet of this parenting-the idea that par-
ents ought to accelerate children’s per-
formance at everything from reading to
swinging a bat- may be incorrect: Some
World’s most prominent talents have
emerged at a very human pace from de-
cidedly average or even troubled begin-
nings. Did you know that Michael
Jordan didn’t make his high school’s J.V.
basketball team? Leonard Bernstein did-
n’t start piano lessons until he was ten
and George Gershwin was a hoodlum in
How can you let your kids just be
kids? There’s a good chance that your
child is, right now, making his own Harry
Potter broomstick out of a stick he found
in the yard….and he might prefer it to the
plastic version you purchased for him.
Childhood experts and those who have
studied the stressed-out are weighing in
on the ways we can help our children
enjoy like. Here are a few suggestions to
help get a little balance back into kids’
1. Embrace the joy of goofing around.
It’s my favorite! If you live in a safe
area (That’s Kohler!) where you can
let your child run amok with his/her
friends outdoors, let them!
2. Limit kids to one or two activities
per season. Kids may have lots of en-
ergy, but they get as tense as adults
would when they’re overscheduled.
Don’t just
sign your kids up for stuff. Ask them
first! They may have an opinion!
3. Eat dinner together. If you really
want your children to thrive, break
bread with
them. Turn off the T.V. and make it an
enjoyable event. Did you know that for
young children, mealtime at home is a
stronger predictor of academic achieve-
ment and psychological adjustment than
time spent in school, studying, sports and
4. Encourage more human time, less
screen and toy time. Our children are
spending larger and larger chunks of time
with stuff and less time with people.
A good toy is 90% child and only 10%
toy. Great toys are play dough, paints,
building blocks and a baby doll.
5. Introduce computers with caution.
Computers can be awesome teaching
But they can become an avenue that lim-
its human contact.
6. Reclaim summer. Maybe it’s time for
all of us to stop thinking of summer
vacation as an opportunity to burnish
a resume. Children and parents need
that hiatus to recharge. If you relax
over the summer, you’re going to be
rejuvenated in time for back-to-school.
7. Be outnumbered. Many of us can’t
or don’t want to have more than one or
two children, but there are lots of ways
to give your kids more time with other
kids and less time with you. Don’t
confuse loving with hovering.
8. Learn to trust your child. This may
be the most important parenting rule
of all. Children are self-directed learn-
ers – they are naturally curious – and
how they learn is through play.
Students given
opportunity to
recite pledge
By Susan Jaberg
Every day the students of the Kohler Public
School System join together and recite the Pledge
to the flag of the United States. Did you know
your child has the opportunity to recite the Pledge
for their classmates via the public address sys-
tem? Yes, all students in 3rd-8th grade get the op-
portunity to lead their classmates in the Pledge.
It’s an honor for students to lead their peers and
doing so also gives them practice speaking in
front of a large group. If you want to hear your
child lead the Pledge, ask their classroom teacher
when they are assigned this opportunity.

The cold weather is upon us!! Please send
your children to school with winter attire.
Winter attire should include: mittens, coat,
boots, hat and a scarf. All kids go outside
prior to 7:53a.m. and during their scheduled
recesses. If you do not wish to have your
child go outside, they must come to school
with a doctor’s excuse or you are free to pick
them up during their scheduled lunch-recess
We at the Kohler Public School believe
that fresh air and outside play is good for
children. If you prefer to pick up your chil-
dren during lunch, the following is their
lunch-recess schedule.
SK-1 Grade Recess: 11:40 a.m. - Noon
(11:20a.m.-11:40a.m. lunch)
Grade Recess: 11:50 a.m. - 12:10

We ask parents to discuss this issue with
their children now – before the actual emer-
gency occurs. If you are generally not home
during the day, be sure your child knows
where they are to go if school closed early:
will they go home with a classmate; an older
sibling; or a relative? Have you made prior
arrangements with this individual to be on
“stand by” for these occasions? Please make
your arrangements in advance and make sure
your child is fully aware of what to do in
case school closes early.
Any decision to close school for all or any
portion of a school day will be made as early
as possible in order to afford parents the op-

On November 24, 2009, Kohler hosted a tri-
angular choral festival. Oostburg and
Howards Grove brought their top high
school choirs to Kohler to perform. Each
choir performed two selections and worked
with clinicians Candie Douglas from Sun
Prairie and Steve Vepraskas from Grafton.
Each choir also had the opportunity to listen
to another choir and assess their perform-
ance. Everyone enjoyed the day and learned
a lot!

On Sunday, December 6, a small group of

Fairy Tea Party
benefits spring
drama production
A fairy tea party recently hosted by the
fairies from the KHS production of A Mid-
summer ight’s Dream will benefit the high
school drama department. Due to generous
donations and tickets purchased, all income
from the tea party will go directly to funding
the upcoming production of Alice in Won-
derland. Over thirty children, dressed in
their fairy best, enjoyed a party before the
Sunday matinee. Guests met Titania, the
Queen of the Fairies and the entire cast of
fairies, along with other actors from the
show. The party, coordinated by Amy
Gutschow, featured backstage tours, face
painting, and a choreography lesson teaching
the guests the fairy dance from the show. In
addition there were refreshments, activities,
photos and fun for all.
Alice in Wonderland will open the second
week in April. The musical will feature
imaginative costumes, memorable songs and
a cast of very talented actors and singers.
This production is a student-run production,

Santa chef fries up
some bratwurst
Santa took a break from his busy sched-
ule to drop by and help Chef Ted fry up
some brats for the for the Candlelight Din-

Ted was mysteriously unavailable for com-

Trees for Tomorrow
Trees for Tomorrow was founded in 1944
to replant the trees of northern Wisconsin
that had been harvested. Later, the program
became focused on education for young peo-
Four Kohler students attended this year:
Lily Zehfus, Lily Proudman, Kelsey Long,
and Levi Boy. We had an amazing experi-
ence. We learned about the ecology of our
northern forests and the wildlife that thrives
We got to identify and measure different
aspects of trees as a logger would. Every
day, our counselors gave informative presen-
tations about different things. One day we
had a presentation on birds of prey with a
live Red-Tail Hawk and a Great Horned
Owl. Another day we had a contest to see
which group could light a fire and boil water
for five minutes with the smallest fire.
We also spent a day trip in the Porcupine
Mountains. Our hike was six miles long. The
scenery everywhere was incredible, and we
also got to see Bond Falls first-hand.
On one day, we got hands-on experience
with a GPS. We also got to use a cross-cut
saw, and we all attempted to light a match
with a hatchet.
The four of use thoroughly enjoyed this
experience. We learned a lot and met new
people from the Sheboygan County area.
This trip gave us an entirely new perspective
on Wisconsin's forests.

Persons Requesting to Address Members of the Board of Education —
Board President’s Report— The December 14th meeting will be held earlier
because of the Winter Choral concert. Tuesday, January 26
, is next board
workshop. The Memorial Hall Theater Committee met to discuss the lights.
It will cost $150,000 in order to repair them, get them to code, and increase
capacity. The school’s share is $50,000. November 30 is the next Memorial
Hall Theater Committee meeting to discuss the lights and the pink agreement.
Quarterly Ebben Field Update—Lee Benish talked about conceptual plans and
public input. This is a work in progress and we want to make sure we do this
correctly. The Ebben Field Committee prioritizes “needs versus wants.” Fi-
nancing is a key element in the construction.
Kohler School Garden Club—Residents who volunteer time and labor to keep
up school grounds. Laura Drew contacted Lee Benish to get this program up
and running. The club’s vision of the village is a garden atmosphere, espe-
cially on Upper Road. Sue Maki and Arlene Kraus were present to represent
the group. The club consulted Kohler Landscape/Kohler Botanic Gardens and
received advice on what to plant in the hostile environment. Fundraising ef-
forts are underway. The club relies on the village for fall clean up, top soil,
wheel barrows, mulch, and waste containers. The Dramm Corporation will
donate portable watering containers. Matt Magle will trim all the trees gratis.
The club wants to divide up the work in teams of 2 or 3. Students may be as-
signed flower beds for service hours. Jane Bishop thanked the club for taking
on the leadership and making the property so beautiful. They truly do love
the community.
Review of District Finances— Bob reported that we just finished the annual
meeting. Everything went well. We are working with RW Baird in the applica-
tion process and should have information by mid-January. Hopefully, will
have dollars by June. The payback period is up to 14 years at zero percent
interest. The district will have to budget for the dollars to make the principal
payments. The village wants to start as early as mid-June to work on the
Superintendent’s Report— Kara Saemann and Jenna Peters each one the
first round in the state competition for tennis. Kohler HS Boys Soccer team
went to state. Moved onto finals and lost in double overtime 1-0. Coach
Scott Feltner and John Schad and each soccer player are congratulated for a
season well done. Jane Bishop said it certainly was the right decision to
make soccer a varsity sport. WKCE testing is set this week for 3-8 & 10
grade students. WKCE will be phased out within the next 5 years. The state
is looking at new model that will tie school performance to teacher dollars.
NWEA is formative testing and identifies issues & concerns. Bob and Susan
are looking at a reading and writing program in the middle school that will
begin in second semester. The Astronomy Club has 15 members. The Engi-
neering Club has over 20 students. The 1
project is “Project Grill” spon-
sored by Curt Joa and competing at Lakeshore Technical College. The
students will build a BBQ grill that looks like a B-17 bomber. Kohler High
School is a charter member and certified by National Honor Society. The
High School will need to refine the criteria and build an infra-structure so the
students can succeed.

The Breadmaster’s Touch
featured at Woodlake Market
It’s morning again in
Kohler, and Chef Douglas is
handcrafting another fresh-
baked masterpiece. Step in-
side his cozy kitchen, and
you’ll witness the lost art of
bread making. Absent from
this scene are machines, con-
veyor belts and harsh chemi-
cals. That’s because Chef
Douglas follows a special bread making tradi-
tion from centuries past, in which he uniquely
shapes each loaf by hand and bakes it in a stone
hearth until it reaches golden perfection. It’s a
meticulous process, but Chef Douglas would
have it no other way.
In his mind, fresh-baked bread can serve a
higher purpose than sustenance. It can also
warm the soul. That’s why he chooses only the
finest natural flours for his customers—no
preservatives, no bleaching, no chemicals. And
with no trans fats or added sugars, you’ll enjoy
wholesome goodness in every bite. It’s the taste
of Europe at home. And you can find these
fresh-baked breads every day at Woodlake
Pain de Campagne - The
right choice for every occa-
sion. Literally translated
“country bread,” this French
selection is naturally fer-
mented for 18 hours, giving it
a pronounced tangy wheat fla-
Rustic Baguette - The or-
ganic option. This French
baguette is laden with flax seeds and sesame
seeds for diverse, textured flavor.
Ciabatta - The ultimate appetizer. A delicious
Italian hearth bread with a crisp crust and an
open, porous texture.
French Bread - The European classic. An elon-
gated baguette with an irresistible aroma; crisp
crust and a soft, pillowy center.
Multi-Grain Sandwich Bread - The hoagie
helper. Naturally leavened and flavored, this
hearty bread features a variety of whole grains
and seeds for an incredible, organic taste.
Sour Dough Multi-Grain Bread - The versatile
companion. Created using a special yeast starter,
this tangy bread undergoes a slow fermentation
process and is loaded with hearty grains for a vi-
brant, complex flavor.

Celebrate the season during Taste of the
Alps – A Winterfest Celebration on Saturday,
January 30, in the quaint Village of Kohler. This
year’s celebration will feature massive snow
sculptures, demonstrations and activities that
pay homage to the Austrian heritage of the
Kohler family.
The highlight of this year’s enhanced cele-
bration of the winter season is the creation of
large-scale snow sculptures designed by interna-
tionally renowned artists that will be showcased
throughout the village. Eight massive snow
masterpieces will be sculpted entirely out of
snow to represent customary Bavarian castles,
winter sports and scenes from Austria. Seven
artists that have travelled the world creating
snow sculptures will each design their own cre-
ations as well as collaborate on the 2010 Taste
of the Alps Signature Snow Piece towering 10
feet cubed located in the ARTspace Plaza. The
community is invited to watch as the artists
work the week prior to the event starting Janu-
ary 26. The giant snow sculptures will be lo-
cated in front of the Horse & Plow, Kohler
Design Center, corner of Highland and Green-
field, and throughout The Shops at Woodlake.
The Taste of the Alps – A Winterfest Celebration
money for Safe Harbor in chilly Wood Lake.
Guests can get involved in the Snowman Building
Competition, the interactive nature exhibit and
many more activities.
“This event features activities for a variety of
interests combining Western European heritage, art
and winter classics,” said Kim Morris, Special
Events Manager for Destination Kohler. “It’s not
often that we wish for wintery conditions, but
many of the festivities require chilly temperatures
and snow.”
Event attendees are encouraged to enjoy a com-
plimentary tour of The Waelderhaus during their
Winterfest experience. The home was built in 1931
to pay tribute to the tradition of Bregenzerwald
Provence of Austria, the village that John Michael
Kohler, who founded Kohler Co. in 1873, came
when he was 10 years old. It faithfully reproduces
the architecture peculiar to this Alpine area and
stands as a museum of minute details in the perfect
marriage of artistry and superb craftsmanship.
Complimentary tours of The Waelderhaus are
available daily at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
