Village loses appeal in tax dispute with Kohler Co.


The Village of Kohler has lost
an appeal in its tax dispute with
Kohler Co. after three appellate
judges ruled unanimously in favor of Kohler Co. in its lawsuit
against the Village.
The companys lawsuit claimed
it overpaid more than $600,000
in 2012 property taxes due to the
over-assessed value of its resort
properties. The Village appealed

after Sheboygan County Circuit


Court Judge Timothy Van Akkeren ruled in favor of the company in February, 2015.
At issue was the method used
by the Villages assessor to include more than just the value
of the land and facilities when
determining assessed value. The
assessor also factored in the value of the companys business op-

erations for The American Club,


Inn on Woodlake, Riverbend, and
Blackwolf Run.
Similar court cases have ruled
that business value may be included in a property assessment if its
determined that the propertys inherent income producing capacity would survive the sale of the
underlying land. Kohler Co. arContinued on page 3

Village tax appeal, continued from page 1


gued that their reputation and success in marketing, branding, and
managing their operations were
unique and unlikely to transfer
to another buyer. The Appellate
Court agreed and Kohler Co. will

reportedly get a property tax refund of $605,908.51 plus interest.


Other court cases are pending for
taxes paid by Kohler Co. in 2011,
2013 and 2014. In 2011, Sheboygan County Circuit Judge Terence

Bourke ordered the Village to reassess the properties. The company is still contesting some of those
reassessments.

Pantry donations to Making Spirits another grant from
Bright provide months of supply for ExxonMobile
those in need locally, cash
contributions to be granted
Collection matches last years total of 73,000 pounds, award for most
pantry items collected by a volunteer group goes to RCS Empowers, up
to $75,000 available for grant requests
SHEBOYGAN, WIThis years
Making Spirits Bright lights show
has passed, but the impact of pantry donations collected is having
a lasting impression. Visitors to
the fourth annual Making Spirits
Bright, by the Sheboygan County
Rotary clubs, contributed 73,000
pounds of items for the ten area
food pantries that comprise the
Sheboygan County Food Bank.
The award for most pantry items
collected at a business location
and contributed to Making Spirits
Bright went to RCS Empowers.
The 73,000 pounds equates
to a four to five month supply
of canned goods and other non
perishable items as an answer to
an ever growing need, said Liz
Kroll, Executive Director of the
Food Bank.
Monetary donations were generous as well so Making Spirits
Bright, Inc. can award grants to

other 501 (c)(3) organizations


from a portion of those contributions. This year that will amount
to a record of up to $75,000.
Those interested in applying by
the April 1 deadline, can find
the application and details at
MakingSpiritsBright.com.
We are extremely grateful to
our sponsors for their commitment to making this relatively
new family tradition a possibility, said Gerry Plehn, Chair of
the event. We want to extend a
special thanks to Dave and Sandy
Sachse, the Grover Family Foundation, the Frank G. and Frieda K.
Brotz Family Foundation, Rockline, and Festival Foods for providing support all four years of
Making Spirits Bright.
The lights display ran from
the Friday after Thanksgiving
through New Years Eve with a
record 21,600 vehicles entering

the gate. Additionally, the Quarryview Center offered visits with


Santa, entertainment from varied
sources, wreath raffles and Discovery Trolley rides.
An award was also garnered
on behalf of the Making Spirits
Bright event. Gerry Plehn, event
chair, was one of two people selected as the individual volunteer
of the year at the first ever Spirit
of Sheboygan Volunteer Awards.
Making Spirits Bright is provided by the three Sheboygan County
Rotary Clubs as a service to the
communities they serve and beyond. The event incorporates the
assistance of over 600 volunteers
from businesses, churches, organizations and individuals throughout the year. For those interested
in becoming involved in 2016,

Kohler Public School, Howards


Grove, Middle School, Cleveland
Elementary School, and Lutheran High School were all awarded
a $500 Grant from ExxonMobil
Educational Alliance Program.
Kristin Guske, owner of the Petro
Centers, worked with the principles of the schools to secure the
grant. The grant is made available by ExxonMobil to schools
across the country. As an Exxon
Mobil retailer, the Petro Centers
are proud to help provide extra funding through the grants to
make it possible to provide cur-

rent technology equipment for


students and intensify the learning
of the students in the area of Science Technology. Exxon Mobil
believes that, as members of the
community, retailers are best qualified to work with local educators
to identify schools that could use
extra funds to make learning more
intriguing for the students. The
Petro Centers had to meet certain
criteria before applying for the
grant. Peter and Kristin Guske
strive to provide great customer
service with competitive pricing
in a friendly atmosphere.

Superintendents Report (Quynh Trueblood)
ISOMORPHISM - what happens in one part of
the organization is mimicked in other parts
of the organization and creates a phenomenon. When an event occurs at the top level,
isomorphism may significantly benefit the
organization. In this case, boards midyear
evaluation of my performance accomplished
three things:
1. Acknowledged and promoted high
leverage actions on clear goals
2. Challenged my mental models and
stimulated divergent thinking
3. Triangulated different perspectives,
ideas and resources to arrive at better
solution.
Playing forward, mimicking throughout the
organization influences how we think, how

we do things, and what we accomplish. It is


clear the board is creating an organizational
phenomena that capitalizes on the capacity
of its people and what Peter Senge, systems
scientist, calls a learning organization.
Triangulating the performance review with the
attention at the 95th State Education Convention sponsored by WIs Associations of School
Boards, District Administrators, and Business
Organizations, the sessions of greatest
importance included: How a Strategic Plan
Supports the Work of School Board, Effective
Governance Processes: Facilitating a Positive
and Productive Board Meeting, and Ramp Up
your School Communication Plans that Works.
Elementary Principals Report
(Lisa Greene)
McKenna Holzrichter, a 5th grader in Mrs.
Bartelts class, organized a book drive. We
collected 2,435 books to give to The Next Door
Foundations Books for Kids program based
in Milwaukee. The winning classes were
Mrs. Roeber and Mrs. Bitter. Both classes
will receive a pizza party for their outstanding
efforts.
The Elementary School has qualified to
continue to move to a Tier II PBIS (Positive
Behavior Intervention and Support) program. The Tier II program will assist us
to give more individualized attention and
strategies to students who may need more
guidance with behavior expectations.
We continue to monitor the learning process
and student progress with our PALS and MAP
testing. Both of these assessments will be
finished by mid February.
MS-HS Principal Report (Timothy Brown)
We had a successful end to the first semester. When comparing the same months in
2014 as 2015, we have seen a total reduction
of 25% of our students that have at least
one tardy and a 41% reduction in the total

number of tardy students. When we have


students to class on time, this lessens reductions to our learning environment, allows
teachers, and students, to begin classes
immediately without disruption the net result
is increased student achievement.
This achievement can clearly be seen in
our Exam Exemption policy. Of the 220 high
school students, 178 qualified for the exam
exemption based on three or fewer tardies,
twenty seven or fewer missed class periods,
and zero unexcused absences. Our goal was
that 80% of our students would earn the
exam exemption, and we have a success rate
of 81% qualifying. Our students and learning
community at the high school should be proud
of our successes.
We will be further digging into the data at the
end of this week when we have final grades
posted, but our preliminary indicators that
we are having a high number of students
passing their classes and are well on track to
graduate. This, again speaks volumes to the
learning environment that everyone, students,
teachers and community members can take
great pride in.
At the middle school we also found great success based on our data collection. As stated
earlier, we firmly believe that when students
are in class at the bell and prepared to learn
that we have set up the correct parameters
to ensure a healthy environment. At the end
of semester 1, 86% of our middle school
students had one or fewer tardies. Only 13
students had 2 or more. This is phenomenal data that demonstrates our successful
climate.
Finally we have begun the task of preparing
our school for success for the 2016-17 school
year. We are in the process of reviewing
our course scope and sequence of our class
offerings and making important modifications

occasions? Please make your arrangements in advance and make sure your
child is fully aware of what to do in
