Anton J. Del Bianco, 92,
of Sheboygan, passed away
Thursday morning, July 16,
2015 at the Sheboygan Progressive Care Center where
he had been residing.
Born December 1, 1922
in Meduno, Italy, Anton
was a son of the late Peter and
Adela Bredolo Del Bianco. The
family moved to Sheboygan in
1923. He attended area schools and
graduated from Kohler High
School in 1941. He then went on to
serve his country in the U.S. Army
Air Force in 1943. He was assigned for duty as a B-17 Flying
Fortress bomb toggler and chin
turret gunner to the 34th Bomb
Group for participation in Eighth
Air Force bombing attacks on targets in Nazi Germany. Sergeant
Del Bianco was awarded the Air
Medal with four oak leaf clusters
along with the European Theater of
Operations, American Defense. He
was honorably discharged in 1945.
Anton was an armature winder
at the Kohler Company for many
years. He was a member of St.
John Evangelist Catholic Church
in Kohler. He was a member of the
Kohler Quarter Century Club, the
Local 833, the American Legion
Post No. 149 in Sheboygan Falls,

and the Old Timers Baseball association. He enjoyed watching the Green
Bay Packers and going
up north. One of his
greatest joys was placing
flags at the Kohler Cemetery for Veteran’s Day.
He is survived by his sister Mary
Taubenheim, Sheboygan; brotherin-law Gilbert Gilbertson, Sheboygan; nieces nephews, other
relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by three sisters, Angeline (John) Diener, Jeannie
(Francis) Junk and Rena Gilbertson, and his brother-in-law, Bill
Taubenheim.
A Mass of Christian Burial was
celebrated at St. John Evangelist
Catholic Church, Kohler. The Rev.
Bob Lotz celebrated that Mass. Interment took place in Woodland
Cemetery.
A memorial fund has been established in his name.
The Olson Funeral Home &
Cremation Service was entrusted
with Anton’s arrangements.
The family would like to thank
the nurses and staff of Sheboygan
Progressive Care Center along
with Sarah Wassink for all of their
loving care and support.

Kohler alum to conduct
research on dairy cattle
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Michael
Krueger, a junior from Kohler,
Wisconsin studying animal science, has received a grant from
the University of Wisconsin-Platteville office of Undergraduate
Research and Creative Endeavors.
With the help of Dr. James Hampton, an assistant professor in the
animal science department who
teaches reproductive physiology
and anatomy and physiology,
Krueger hopes to study the hormone FGF21 and its effects on the
reproductive system of dairy cattle.
FGF21 is a hormone that is only
expressed when an animal is experiencing a time of nutrient deprivation. When cattle eat, their
energy is first put toward maintenance, then toward growth if it is
not fully mature, then if the animal is lactating the energy is then
put toward its lactation. The last
function the animal’s energy is put
toward is reproduction, which
only occurs if the animal has
enough energy left over to put toward it. When FGF21 is expressed, reproduction is the first
thing that an animal will cease to
do because it isn’t a main function
of survival for any animal. In the
research that Krueger plans to do,
he will be editing the cattle’s diet
in order to limit the expression of
FGF21.
By changing levels of protein in
the diet of dairy cattle, Krueger
hopes he will be able to limit the
expression of FGF21. His hypothesis is that limiting the expression

Krueger and Provost Den Herder

of FGF21 could potentially improve reproduction by limiting the
time that cows spend without carrying a pregnancy. Having cows
spend more time in pregnancy
saves farmers in expenses from artificial insemination costs and also
helps the cows produce more
milk.
Although the research has not
been started, Krueger has been
working with Hampton to organize the details. The research will
begin next fall and will take place
on UW-Platteville’s Pioneer Farm.
Hampton is currently applying for
a second grant with the hope that
Krueger will be able to perform
the same research with the swine
department.
Hampton came up with the idea
for this research after corresponding with a professor at another
university and reading about some
studies done on lab mice that
showed effects of FGF21 on the

reproductive efficiency of the
mice.
After graduation Krueger is
planning to attend vet school and
aims to become a large animal
veterinarian. “The most intriguing
part is the complexity of the animals,” he said. “Each animal has
different nutrient requirements depending on whether they are
growing or what stage of their lactation they are in and it is so intriguing that the nutrient
requirements of one animal can be
entirely different from the one
standing next to her even though
they are both full grown animals.
Basically every day that the cow
isn’t pregnant, the farmer is losing
money. The only way that they
can make money on the cow is if
it is lactating.”

Hennes, UW-Platteville University Information and Communications.

lifestyle paintings are collected internationally, created two original paintings for the 2015 PGA Championship.
Both golf masterpieces display her signature relief-painting style, with threedimensional texture that incorporates
sand from the golf course. Metallic
and iridescent paint impart a warm
light, honoring the rich architecture
and colorful landscape.

the powerful par-3 hole and its dramatic sand bunkers overlooking the
glittering expanse of Lake Michigan.
Reproductions of the original painting
will be available at the championship
as 24”x 36” posters for $25.
Whistling Straits – Hole #18,
features the energy of the 18th
green, where a new champion
will sink their decisive final
shot. This panoramic piece will
be available as a Cassy Tully
signed commemorative print
on 12”x 24” paper, bearing the 2015
PGA Championship logo for $50.
“Cassy’s 2015 PGA Championship
paintings and prints are perfect for golf
enthusiasts world- wide,” said Jason

Mengel, 2015 PGA Championship Director. “She honored the spirit in which
Pete Dye designed this championship
course, and the prestige of this historic
event.”
During the 2015 PGA
Championship, which will be
played August 10-16, guests are
encouraged to visit the Championship Shops, a 36,000 squarefoot merchandise shopping
experience located at the Main Entrance to the course, where they will
have the opportunity to visit with the
artist and take home the artwork. And

This past June several Kohler High School students
were selected as representatives to attend the 2015
Badger Girls and Boys State programs. Criteria for selection included leadership, scholarship, service, and participation in school activities.
The Delegates selected for Badger Girls State which

Jennifer Rutten, daughter of William and Katherine Rutten
Badger Girls State is a week of learning about local,
county and state government. American Legion Auxiliary
Badger Girls State is not a recreational or sports program.
Citizens are divided into two political parties—the Federalists and Nationalists. They develop their own party
platforms and formulate their own issues. Citizens “learn
by doing” as they function on city, county and state levels
by electing officials in the manner prescribed by regular
election procedures and conducting business on those
levels. Every girl is encouraged to participate in some
level of the governmental process.

The Delegates selected for Badger Boys State which
is held on the Ripon College Campus in June are:
Hank Biznek, son of Mark and Amy Biznek
Dennis Kanz, son of Jeffrey and Erin
Kanz Memorial
Kohler
Sam Pfrang, son of Charles and Deborah Pfrang
Sam Wenberg, son of Robert and Patti Wenberg
Badger Boys State participants develop their own party
platforms, pass local ordinances and utilize a state patrol
and judicial system to enforce the laws and constitution
of the 51st state. Additionally, citizens choose from a series of schools of instruction such as: law, peace officer,
leadership, public speaking, parliamentary procedure,
and lobbying and campaign strategies, among others.
Badger Boys State citizens also have an opportunity to
participate in a variety of team sports that compete
throughout the week, a band and choir, or write for the
Badger Bugle Citizen, the official newspaper of Badger
Boys State.
The Prescott-Bayens Post N. 83 of the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary sponsor these
programs to foster an understanding of American government. Students from throughout the state learn the
principles of democracy by living together as self-governing citizens, studying the Constitution and sharing experiences that demonstrate both the privileges and
responsibilities of citizenship.

our schools.  I wish to thank members of the board, com-

Elementary News
It has been a very busy year for our elementary teachers.  Students and teachers now have a year of experience
with our new math series, Envision. The program seeks to
help students develop an understanding of math concepts
through problem-based instruction, small-group interaction, and visual learning with a focus on reasoning and
modeling. Differentiated instruction and ongoing assessment are used to meet the needs of students at all ability
levels.
The elementary students wrapped up the end of the school
year by earning tickets for positive behavior.  A store was
opened up where items could be purchased with the tickets, which included toys, gum, Gatorade, books, etc. The
most coveted prize was being able to purchase a certificate to dunk a teacher or principal in the dunk tank on the
last day of school.  The energy around that dunk tank was
incredible!  I couldn’t help but think - that is exactly what
the last day of school should be - a celebration of all we’ve
accomplished and a whole lot of fun.
Middle School News
The seventh and eighth grade students finished their first
year with our new English/Language Arts curriculum, Pearson Common Core Literature.  This program prepares students for college and professional texts with a flexible,
gradual release instructional model.  Students develop the
systematic and analytical habits for good readers—habits
called for by the Common Core and build a solid foundation for writing success while integrated assessments ensure they’re developing deep understanding.
Students in grades six through eight wrapped up a year
with a new social studies curriculum as well.  The
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Social Studies programs inspire
students to explore the cultures that make up our world
today, as well as the events that shaped it. With rich content and hands-on activities, our programs encourage students to not only learn, but grow.
A new math curriculum, Big Ideas from Houghton Mifflin,
has been purchased for use in the 2015-16 school year.
This math program  utilizes a research-based balanced instructional approach that includes both discovery learning
and direct instruction lessons. The program’s Dynamic
Technology supports and enhances the multiple pathways
available from sixth-grade mathematics through Algebra 2.
I am proud to report our middle school teams have arrived
safely in Washington D.C., along with Mrs. LaBudde and
Mr. Bayens and are anxious to present their National History Day projects.  I wish them success but regardless of
the outcome, I am so proud of all their hard work!

Appraisal at 1-800-721-4157. Open Book is an opportunity for property owners to meet with the assessor and
examine the records for their property and discuss how
the assessment was made. Time spent discussing your
assessment with the assessor may eliminate the need for
a formal appeal to the Board of Review. At open book,
the assessor is allowed to make any changes that are
necessary to perfect the assessment roll.

FROM POLICE CHIEF
BILL RUTTEN
PGA Championship
The Kohler Police Department again will be quite involved with the upcoming PGA Championship that is
being held at Whistling Straits August 10th-16th. Despite the actual event being held several miles outside
our community, we will be busy with being part of the
traffic plan, special events being held here, as well as
having an influx of tourists due to some famous people
being amongst us. The police department has asked for
and received additional funds from the Tourism Committee to pay for our extra expenses during this tournament. You will see extra officers out and about,
especially during the events in the Village. The Kohler
Police Department’s normal operations will continue
during this event, and as always, if you have an issue,
call us.
Play Vehicles
The Wisconsin statutes prohibit “play vehicles” from
being on the roadways in Wisconsin. These include:
skateboards, ripsticks, and scooters. Also, state statutes
prohibit any motorized vehicle from being operated on
the sidewalks. That would include motorized scooters.
For the motorized scooters, this basically leaves only
private property where permission has been granted.
Please understand that the state statutes cannot be
changed by Village ordinance, therefore we cannot permit someone to operate in violation. Many of these
items are not cheap to purchase. Please be cognizant of
the rules prior to purchasing one for the family.

Work Out at the Pool
Water in Motion is Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:00 – 8:00 am.
Lap swim is available Monday – Thursday from
8:00 – 9:00 am.
Come and start your day at the Pool!!!
