Gary Dulmes, Chairman of the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC), was very pleased with the announcement stating, “The SCEDC is extremely pleased to have played a role in the collaborative effort to restore freight rail from Plymouth to Kohler.

Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program projects for Kohler slated to start next summer
Construction of the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program projects earmarked for Kohler will begin in July, 2013. Projects include five foot paved shoulders added to each side of CTH Y between Greenfield Drive and State Hwy 23; in-ground crosswalk lighting added to Greenfield Dr. and Orchard Ct. along with restricted vehicle access to create a safer crossing to and from Ebben Field, where a multi-use pathway will be installed to connect with Forest Rd.; and paved shoulders added to both sides of Twin Oaks Rd. between Kohler Co. and CTH Y, providing bicyclists a connection to Kohler Co. and the Old Plank Road Trail from CTH Y. In July 2005, the US Congress adopted the new transportation budget which included special provisions to create a Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program. With the help of Rep. Thomas Petri, Sheboygan County was one of four communities in the country selected to participate in this pilot program, and received $25 million over four years to develop a network of non-motorized transportation facilities that connect neighborhoods, retail centers, schools, recreation amenities, and employment centers and will allow people to change the way they choose to move around through their daily lives. For more information on this project, visit the County website at www.co.sheboygan.wi.us (click “Departments,” then “Planning.”)

Bomber Basketball Club selling raffle calendars
Submitted by the Bomber Basketball  Club As the joy of the holidays gives way to the deep chill of winter, nothing warms the hearts of Kohler basketball fans like the glow of gym lights through school windows, the squeak of high tops on hardwood, and the swishing sound of a game-winning shot at the buzzer! What better time to formally introduce the Bomber Basketball Club… Currently a small group of Kohler elementary and middle school parents, the Bomber Basketball Club has a simple mission: To support Kohler boys’ and girls’ youth basketball programs and volunteer coaches by providing leadership and funding for equipment, uniforms, tournaments and coaching guidance at all levels. Our ultimate goal is a sustained, successful basketball program that promotes sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership and school spirit in our youth and the greater Kohler community. Of course to achieve this lofty goal takes money. To raise the needed funds, the Club has been hosting weekly youth basketball leagues throughout the season, and in November we asked players at all grade levels to sell raffle calendars that feature photos of Kohler students competing in a variety of athletic and academic activities. Not only are these calendars functional and attractive, they offer 365 chances to win cash prizes totaling nearly $10,000! Proceeds earned by the Club will go toward offsetting costs related to basketballs, uniforms, tournament fees and more beginning already this spring. If you’d like to learn more about the Bomber Basketball Club, or you’d like to purchase a calendar, please contact Jeff Romanoski, Marcus Knuth or Jason Keller, or email us at bomberbasketballclub@gmail.com. Calendars are just $20 and sales conclude January 31st. Please watch the Kohler Villager for more information about the Bomber Basketball Club. Thank you for your continued support and GO BOMBERS!

Work of four artist-environment builders on display at John Michael Kohler Arts Center
The recent installation of Ernest Hüpeden’s Beyond the Forest at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center joins three other exhibitions that dip into the riches of the Art Center’s world-renowned collection of works by self-taught artists and artist-environment builders.

Now celebrating its 45th anniversary year, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center has built a reputation as a visionary leader in this area. The New York Times praised the Arts Center recently, noting “it has been building a reputation in the art world for exhibiting outsider or self-taught art with the kind of single-minded passion and depth of vision typically associated with the artists themselves.” The self-taught artists featured produced works of art that transformed homes, yards, meeting halls, churchyards, and other spaces into otherworldly realms. The Art Center will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. The Arts Center will be closedcx New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Snow Emergency To find out if a snow emergency is in effect for the Village, call 459-3881, or visit the village website at www.kohlervillage.org. There is no parking on village streets during a snow emergency. A snow emergency is called when accumulation is expected to exceed six inches. Snow emergencies are typically called from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM to give the snowplows an opportunity to clear the streets with no cars in the way. Snow Removal Winter is upon us. Here are some reminders on Village snow removal ordinances and policies. 1. Please remember to shovel your sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowfall event. 2. Do not blow or shovel snow back into the street. 3. Please remove vehicles from the street when the plows are in operation. 4. Please do not put garbage cans in the street when it is snowing and plows are in operation. Snow Removal Around Kiosks It is the residents’ responsibility to have the snow removed around the kiosks/NDCBU (neighborhood delivery and collection box unit)/cluster boxes. The Postal Service will not deliver mail if the carrier is not able to reach the unit – the front as well as the backside. Someone in the unit/neighborhood needs to take the initiative to remove the snow; or maybe the responsibility can be shared within the unit. The Village is not responsible to keep these areas clear of snow. Christmas Tree Pickup Christmas trees will be picked up curbside during scheduled garbage pick-ups. Actions taken by the Village Board during their October 29, November 12, 19 and 29 meetings: • Appointed Nathan Eastway to the Planning Commission. • Approved the annual Joint Power Agreement with the Sheboygan County Sherriff’s Dept. • Approved Temporary Class B beer & wine license for Kohler Foundation, Inc. for 12/6/12. • Approved Class B beer license for Century Buffet. • Approved health insurance policy renewal and fund health savings account. • Approved changes to the employee handbook regarding health insurance opt out. • Approved labor contract for Kohler Police Assoc.

If you want to know if one of the Village Parks is available you can now check that online. Just click on the calendar of events and you will be linked to the Kohler School District Calendar. Select the date that you are interested in and a list will be generated of all the reservations for that day. This will also show reservations for the Kohler Memorial Theater, Village Gym and Kirkpatrick Center.

From Police Chief Bill Rutten
Identity Theft Have you or someone you know been a victim of Identity Theft. Statistics show that over 8 million Americans have been a victim of identity theft. The perpetrators are looking for victims without criminal records and good credit ratings, that’s you! Protect yourself with some easy to do steps. Shredding your confidential mail is very important. Remove unnecessary identifying information from your checks, such as phone number and Driver’s License number (a retailer will ask if they need it). Check your credit report annually for free at www.annualcreditreport.com. You do not need to sign up for anything at the site to get the report. Stop unsolicited pre-approved credit cards from being mailed by calling 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1888-567-8688), you can opt-out for life. Also, never answer questions about your identity on the phone or by unsolicited emails. Your bank or other financial institutions have all your information, they don’t need you to tell them again by e-mail or phone. The Kohler Police Department has a link about other ways to protect yourself at www.kohlerpolice.com. Other Scams There are residents in the Village that have been targeted by other scam artists. Many of them prey on your good intentions of helping those in need. If you get a phone call that someone you know is stuck in a foreign country and can’t leave until they are wired money, don’t believe it. Any time that a sweepstakes calls and says that you won and just need to be wired some money for any reason, don’t believe it. If someone is planning on buying something from you and “accidentally” makes the check out for too much, and asks to either keep it or send them the difference, don’t believe them. You’ll be out the check amount and the extra that you sent back. These are some of the most common ways for you to get talked out of your hard earned cash. The wired money can be retrieved from anywhere, and usually it is out of the country, so you don’t have much recourse. Also, any time you cash a check which bounces, or is fraudulent, you are on the hook. Your bank will make you reimburse them. If you get targeted by one of these or another attempt to swindle you of your money, call our department for advice, 459-3877.

• Approved hiring four seasonal part-time DPW employees. • Approved non-represented employee wages for 2013. • Approved replacement of Village Gymnasium lights, $5,609. • Approved the 2013 General Fund, Capital Outlay & Special Funds budgets. • Approved purchase of 100’ aerial ladder truck, cost not to exceed $950,000. • Adopted Ordinance 2012-11, 2013 Budget Adoption & Tax Levy Ordinance. • Adopted the following Resolutions: 2012-7, An Official Statement of Intent for Issuing Debt for 2012 Capital Outlay Purchased & Projects. 2012-8, Authorizing Borrowing $950,000 from the State Trust Fund Loan Program for purchase of an aerial ladder truck. 2012-9, Authorizing Borrowing $150,000 from the State Trust Fund Loan Program for 2012 Capital Outlay Projects.
