Kohler School Board Approves
2012/2013 Budget
At its Annual Meeting on Octo-
ber 29, 2012, the Kohler School
Board approved a final 2012/2013
school budget and tax levy. The
levy for the year will increase
0.4%. The corresponding levy rate
will drop an estimated 1.6%, due
to an increase in property values of
1.9%. The budget approved by the
Board projects a surplus for a sec-
ond consecutive year. The surplus
is estimated at $7,000.
“I appreciate all of the efforts made
by the staff and administration to
reach a balanced budget. In this
economic environment, it can be
difficult to operate in a fiscally re-
sponsible manner and provide a
“best in state” education. At
Kohler, we have been able to do
both. As a community, we can all
be proud of our school, profes-
sional staff and students.” stated
Board President Marlene Yang.
The total school tax levy for the
2011/2012 school year was
$5,595,000. The total levy for the
2012/2013 school year is
$5,616,000, an increase of $21,000
or 0.4%. The estimated tax levy
rate will fall from $10.82 per
$1,000 of property value to
$10.65, a reduction of 1.6%.
The 2012/2013 budget is not
only balanced but includes signif-
icant investments in teacher and
student technology, professional
development for staff, and long-
term capital improvements. The
long-term capital improvements
fund will be built up over time to
provide for major repairs and im-
provements in the future.
The Treasurer’s report at the An-
nual Meeting included an explana-
tion of the factors comprising the
$21,000 increase in the tax levy.
Factors increasing the levy were 1)
a decrease in state aid of $114,000
and 2) an increase in per pupil rev-
enue of 0.5%, totaling $26,000, al-
lowed by the State of Wisconsin
Department of Public Instruction.
Factors decreasing the levy were
1) a decrease of $80,000 due to a
decline in student membership to-
tals based on a three year average;
2) a decrease of $25,000 in the
amount of payments due under the
schools’ referendum debt that was
approved in 2003; and 3) $14,000
of other items.
The Board is pleased to have a
balanced budget while using all
available resources to support a
high quality education in Kohler
Schools.

School Foundation
What began as a day of educa-
tion ended with team building,
breaking down of barriers, a dec-
laration of Bomber Spirit and the
spontaneous coming together of
community. Thanks to a grant
from the Kohler School and the
Kohler School Foundation, DJ
Suga Ray Day on October 12 was
a way to introduce Kohler youth to
an incredibly talented A-list DJ,
whose skill depends on the ency-
clopedic knowledge of music and
the current use of technology.
Having spun for celebrities like
Tiger Woods, Matt Damon, and
Kenneth Cole, Suga Ray served as
a role model for Kohler’s youth
not only as someone who excels in
their chosen field, but also as a
leader, and someone who has re-
mained close to his family (his fa-
ther came along and is his man-
ager). Suga Ray is also an example
of someone who chose to follow
his passion into a career different
from the field that he had initially
earned a degree in. He infused the
Middle School and High School
students with his enthusiasm, and
educated them during group semi-
nars about the intricate skill of
mashing music and how to
“scratch.” He then presented
school-wide to the Middle School
and High School. The grand finale
was a Gangnam style dance-off
between the middle school/high
school verses the faculty. Those
who were there can attest to the
power of the Bomber Spirit pres-
ent in the room. It was truly a com-
munity experience.
The community spirit continued
onto Ebben Field for the Home-
coming game, then into the
evening at the Homecoming dance
where DJ Suga Ray spun for
Kohler, Lutheran and Christian
High School students who, for the
first time, gathered together for an
amazing Homecoming event.
DJ Suga Ray Day helps build positive
culture, community, climate

Presidential
election draws
high voter
turnout
The Village of Kohler’s voter
turnout for the November 6 presi-
dential election was approximately
89% as 1,357 registered voters cast
their ballots. (There are 1,527 eligi-
ble voters registered in the Village).
Village clerks and poll workers
had to draw on their training and
doublecheck rulebooks when one
voter, who recently moved to the
Village from Canada, came to the
Village Hall to cast his ballot as an
American citizen. Since he hadn’t
been in the U.S. for 28 days, he was
allowed to only vote for president.
Though the nation’s electorate
chose Democratic incumbent
Barack Obama to remain as presi-
dent, 845 Kohler voters preferred
Republican Mitt Romney, while
498 voted for Obama. There were
411 absentee ballots, and 24 write-
in candidates. Some of the names
of write-in candidates included
Santa, Rita Gast, Tony Romo, Bob
Ryan, and “Anybody.” For the first
time in many years, according to
one veteran poll worker, Mickey
Mouse was a no-show as a write-in
candidate.
For Wisconsin’s open U.S. Sen-
ate seat, Kohler voters preferred
Tommy Thompson (R) over the de-
cided winner, Tammy Baldwin (D)
853-458. For the U.S. House race,
Kohler chose the statewide winner,
Tom Petri (R) (894) over Joe Kallas
(D) (397). For the 27th Assembly
District, Kohler chose the winner
Steve Kestell (R) (857) over Steven
Bauer (436). For County Clerk, the
decided winner, Jon Dolson, re-
ceived 827 Kohler votes over Dave
Wehrwein’s 438. For County Reg-
ister of Deeds, Kohler voters
handed 746 votes to Kris Wheeler
and 529 to Ellen Schleicher, who
was the decided winner.

Kohler resident to
hold December book
signing event
Join Elise Cantrell, author of 40 Days
to Enlightened Eating on December 15
at Intentions store in Kohler
Elise Cantrell of Kohler began
practicing yoga 20 years ago to
help relieve stress as a high school
teacher in a difficult school setting.
She also practiced yoga and
Ayurveda as a young mother to
help heal from a chronic illness for
which doctors gave her little hope.
Since that time, yoga and healing
has developed into a passion for
Cantrell.
The happily married mother of
two children is also passionate
about cooking and eating natural
foods, and developed an eating
plan inspired by the sciences of
Yoga and Ayurveda. Feeling pow-
erfully moved to share her plan,
Cantrell authored 40 Days to En-
lightened Eating, which just came
out November 14, 2012.
The book invites readers to rein-
vigorate their metabolism, opti-
mize their weight, awaken their
energy and enliven their spirit by
following the plan, and in just 40
days the body, mind and spirit will
be transformed without having to
count calories, fat, carbs, or points.
The author says that many eating
plans cause weight loss at the ex-
pense of energy and
health, but her plan is
different in that it main-
tains health, energy, and
vitality, rather than being
just about weight loss.
Cantrell also teaches
regular six week courses
based on the book’s eat-
ing plan. The public is
invited to meet the author at a book
signing event on December 15,
2012 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the In-
tentions store located in The Shops
at Woodlake in Kohler.
Cantrell is a former high school
art teacher who holds a Master’s
Degree in Education from The Uni-
versity of South Carolina. She
began teaching yoga in Paris,
France in 2006 and is currently a
yoga studio owner and instructor in
Kohler, Wisconsin. Cantrell com-
bines her teaching background with
her passion for yoga as a profes-
sionally certified yoga instructor.
She has practiced and studied many
lineages of yoga including Ash-
tangha, Anusaura, Bikram, Bap-
tiste, Dru, Hatha, Iyengar, Kripalu,
Sivananda and Vinyasa. Her teach-
ings draw from the well-
spring of each of these
styles. Cantrell received
her 200 hour YTT certi-
fication from White
Lotus Institute in Santa
Barbara, California. She
will complete her 500
hour level Certification
at Kripalu Center for
Yoga and Health in May, 2013.
Cantrell is also a certified
Ayurvedic Health Counselor via
the American Institute of Vedic
Studies in Santa Fe, NM.

honor and raise up to God the lives
of those who have passed away in

those requested. At this service we

on the altar in remembrance of
those God has called into God’s
heavenly kingdom. The public is
welcome to join us, and if they
wish, they can call the church of-
fice (452-6795) and make a re-

Thanksgiving Service
Wednesday, November 21, at
7:30 pm
Grace United Church of Christ,
500 School Street, Kohler, under
the pastoral leadership of Rev.
Thomas M. Schroeder will offer a
special service of worship on
Wednesday evening, November 21
to celebrate and give thanks. The
service will begin at 7:30 p.m.
The service will begin with a
reading of the presidential procla-
mation followed by the singing of
some of the best loved “Thanks-
giving” hymns known. An inspira-
tional message will be given by
Pastor Schroeder detailing our
need to give thanks as influenced
by a reading from the Gospel of
Matthew. The anthem from our
Senior Choir, under that direction
of Audrey Braatz, will be Edward
Broughton’s “We Praise You, O
God.”
The people of Grace UCC in-
vite the public to participate fully
with the congregation.
The Reign of Christ
Sunday
November 25
The Church Year ends with the
celebration of the Reign of Christ
Sunday, honoring Christ who sits
at the right hand of God the Cre-
ator. The celebration helps us to
see the vision of the world that
God created in its full glory as we
live in the midst of its earthly real-
ities and missteps. The vision of
the heavenly reign of Christ has in-
spired countless artists, musicians,
civic leaders, and philosophers to
propel people towards the possibil-
ity of “what could be” compared to
“what is.” On this Sunday we will
once again instill in the hearts of
those who gather an image of what
we could be if we acknowledged
the will and way of God made
known in God’s Son, Jesus. Join
the congregation of Grace UCC on
Sunday morning at 8 or at 10 on
November 25.

KOHLER – The sights and sounds
of the season come alive once
again at the annual Gingerbread
Festival at the Waelderhaus in
Kohler. The community tradition
continues with a gingerbread
house competition and seasonal
tunes sure to inspire holiday cheer.
Festivities begin the day after
Thanksgiving and continue
through the holidays with weekend
musical acts and more than 30 lo-
cally made gingerbread master-
pieces.
Gingerbread Competition
Every year, local pre-school
through high school groups are in-
vited to submit unique gingerbread
houses decorated with candy and
other edible items. These creations
are displayed at the Waelderhaus
(1100 West Riverside Drive,
Kohler), where visitors can cast
their votes for their favorites. The
winners in five age categories will
receive cash prizes for first, second
and third place.
“The originality of our school
kids never fails to amaze me. Each
house is more imaginative than the
last, so make sure to vote daily for
your favorite creation,” said Deb-
bie Weber, manager of the
Waelderhaus.
Visitors may view these amaz-
ing submissions and enjoy compli-
mentary gingerbread cookies
during the extended holiday hours
(see below).
Free Weekend Music
While browsing the gingerbread
masterpieces, Waelderhaus visitors
can listen to classic holiday songs
performed by a myriad of local
acts, from celebrated pianists and
violinists to harmonic choruses, on
Saturdays and Sundays, 2 p.m.
Kicking off the season on Satur-

Chordaliers, a chorus of 20-30 area
