Council keeps TIF

By John Halverson TIF 4 lives. The controversial Tax Incremental Finance District was approved for another year by the Lake Geneva City Council on Monday night. It was not, however, without debate. Gary Hougan and Jeff Wall were the only council members who wanted the district to be closed. TIF 4 has done a fantastic job and on balance its helped the city, Hougan said. However, times have changed. He suggested that further improvements could be funded from the citys own budget or borrowed at what are record-low interest rates. Wall credited his election to the council, in part, on his desire to close TIF 4. The TIF was designed to eliminate blight and improve downtown trafc, he noted, but he questioned whether recent TIF expenditures, like those for a skate park, fullled that goal. Hougan added, I get the impression were looking for projects to spend it on. Council members Sarah Hill and Alan Kupsik expressed their strong support for TIF.

Group says Hennerleys time at the city violated chamber comes to an end meeting law
THE FARMERS MARKET opened last Thursday in front of Horticultural Hall on Broad Street. Unlike previous years, parking in front of the market is no longer free. Sitting next to George Hennerley at a meeting was usually the best seat in the house. He was smart, funny, informed and always uplifted the meeting with a joke or wisecrack. Yet his jabbing always seemed to fall short of malice, a nonvisible wink just a few seconds behind each comment. And he could always take as much as he gave. As president of the Geneva Lake Area Chamber of Commerce hes been a constant presence for the last 33 years. In meetings. At events. In the public eye. Last Friday, it was announced that Hennerley, 61, had resigned his position effective the previous day. A press release said that Hennerley has stepped down as chamber President and has retired from the Chamber, effective May 9, 2013. The Chamber Board of Directors expresses their appreciation to Hennerley for his years of service and dedication, the press release added. Hennerley No further information was available at presstime regarding any change in the direction of the chamber or about plans for replacing Hennerley. In some ways, Hennerley was the chamber. In some ways, he was as much a Lake Geneva mainstay as the Riviera.

How do you become a valedictorian?

Badger Highs valedictorians know the secret and it turns out to be no secret at all
By John Halverson Overall grade point average (GPA). Cumulative GPA semesters 5, 6, 7. Cumulative GPA in core subjects (math, science, English, social studies, world languages). Composite ACT score. Those are the tie-breakers for who becomes the valedictorian at Badger High School in Lake Geneva. And there are four students who made the grade this year. Nicole Johnson, Ian Weber, Jamie Mikrut and Drew Antle. We sat around a table a few weeks ago and asked them how they did it. One answer came through loud and clear hard work. Apparently, the secret to being at the top of your class is easier than you might think and a lot harder. Jamie, for instance, has worked at the family business, Upper Crust Pizza in Pell Lake, since she was in sixth grade. And there were a lot of 3 a.m. dates with her textbooks as she tried to balance work, homework and her social life. Their parents get a lot of credit. Other common denominators? All of them are involved in activities outside of the classroom. Hard work. Good parents. Outsidethe-classroom involvement. Clichs? Apparently the secret to their success, besides natural aptitude of course, isnt so secret after all. They prove there are no shortcuts. Following is a brief profile of each valedictorian, culled from forms they filled out a few weeks ago.

Nicole Johnson
Nicole, Lake Geneva, is the daughter of Angela and Ken Johnson. She will attend Minnesota State University-Mankato, where she plans to study elementary education or child psychology.

Local radio station wins top honors

By John Halverson Youll need a new wall to hang up all of your awards, the visitor said. One wall of WLKG is lled up with awards, the latest are 17 awards received at the Annual Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Awards Banquet held in Madison at the Alliant Center. Among the honors was being named Wisconsins small market Station of the Year for the third year in a row, the highest honor awarded to Wisconsin radio and TV stations from the state association. I believe my staff deserves recognition more than I do, station owner Tom Kwiatkowski told the Regional News. General Manager Nancy Douglass said, We are very proud to be recognized for the third year in a row. We work hard every day to entertain and inform the community, to help our advertisers reach goals, and to bring our listeners the best experience we can. We are so lucky to get to work in such a beautiful area, and its nice to be recognized, but even nicer to work for, and in, such a loyal and supportive community. Its nice to be recognized, but even nicer to work for, and in, such a loyal and supportive community. What sets them apart? In talking with those at the station, a couple things come across. Creativity thats what the contest measures. Being able to survive and ourish being surrounded by much larger stations which reach Walworth County. Were a small market station in a large market, Douglass said. The trick, she said, is to sound like a big market station while remaining local. Everyone on the staff at the station comes from the area, which gives them ties to whats going on and an understanding of what the station needs, she said. The award is especially gratifying, Douglass said, because were one of the few single stand-alone stations owned locally. Like most newspapers these days, most radio stations are owned by larger companies. Program director and morning show host Dave Michaels pointed out that the awards are determined each year by other, out-of-the-state radio stations on a rotating basis. To win the station-of-the-year award three years in a row, judged by different people, shows that the award is hardly a blip, he said. Lake 96.1 FM, covering southeastern Wisconsin and a portion of northern Illinois, also received seven rst place awards, including Best Morning Show for Life Matters with Dave and Nancy, Best Radio Show for Saturday at the 70s, Best ClientRecorded Commercial for Popeyes Lake Geneva, and Best Election Coverage; six second place awards, and three third place awards. Lake 96.1 programming also includes John Tesh in the evenings, Michaels in the Morning, and Sports Jam, live every Saturday at 7am. Next June the station will celebrate its 20th year.


Authorities investigate the scene following a shootout between FBI agents and three suspects allegedly intending to rob the Associated Bank branch in Richmond, Ill., Friday, May 10, 2013. One of the suspects was killed and the other two were arrested. Joan Hyde, special agent with the Chicago division of the FBI, said the FBI was in Richmond as part of an ongoing investigation. No agents were injured during the confrontation.

FBI shoots, kills suspected bank robber in Richmond

RICHMOND, Ill.(AP) Two men were charged Saturday with trying to rob a northern Illinois bank in a foiled heist that left an alleged accomplice dead. Roberto Favela, 34, of Chicago and Aaron Russell, 40, of Orland Hills appeared before a federal judge on Saturday, the FBI said. Neither has a listed phone number, and their attorney at Saturdays hearing, federal defender MiAngel Cody, didnt immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment. The two were arrested Friday outside of an Associated Bank branch in Richmond after FBI agents who had been tracking them surrounded their vehicle and another driven by 45-year-old Tony Starnes, of Chicago, after they pulled into the parking lot. Authorities say that instead of surrendering, Starnes drove into an agents vehicle, and that an ofcer shot and killed him. No agents were injured. FBI agents had been tracking Russell in connection with Chicago-area jewelry store robberies. It was investigating Russell and Starnes for a Feb. 2 bank robbery in Poplar Grove. They were in Richmond, a community of about 1,900 residents near Wisconsin, as part of their investigation of the suspects. Authorities say Russell had a mask around his neck and gloves on when they arrested him. Russell has two previous armed robbery convictions in 2004 and 1991, according to the FBI.

Police week honors ofcers who died on duty

By Chris Schultz his week is Police Week, and Thursday is Peace Ofcer Memorial Day. Created in 1961 by Congress and President Kennedy, this week is intended to honor those who wear a badge and swear to defend the law and public every day theyre on the beat. Peace Ofcer Memorial Day is to honor those law enforcement ofcers who fell in the line of duty. The National Law Enforcement Ofcers Memorial in Washington, D.C., bears the names of police, deputies and agents who have died while upholding the law. Walworth County counts three of its peace ofcers among those whose names are now on that memorial. Elkhorn Police Ofcer Hans Lindstrom, Lake Geneva Police Ofcer Al C. Exner and Walworth County Sheriffs Deputy Patrick R. Bolton gave their lives to protect and serve. Hans Lindstrom Lindstrom had been hired by the Elkhorn Police Department just four years earlier. It was a Sunday, June 12, 1927, and Lindstrom was on duty as a speed cop, a motorcycle-mounted trafc patrolman charged with enforcing local speed limits. When a small Ford coupe sped into Elkhorn that warm spring evening, its engine racing and tires squealing, Lindstrom immediately gave chase. Not only was this car speeding, but it had no license plate. Inside, Earl Williams and Norman Wallis were driving a stolen car, and were planning to rob a gas station near Lauderdale Lakes. Wallis tried to evade the pursuit. Lindstrom was a wily ofcer, however. He stayed on his quarrys tail until they reached a rural road off Highway 20, just outside Elkhorn. Lindstrom, then 30, served in combat with the U.S. Army during World War I. He had been born in Sweden just before his parents immigrated to the U.S. His parents lived in Racine. He had two brothers, John and Lester. Lindstrom, who was unmarried, lived in a boarding house in Elkhorn. He sent a portion of his check home every month because his mother was ill. When the coupe nally stopped, Lindstrom ordered the driver to follow him back to the police station in Elkhorn. Lindstrom probably recognized the driver. Lindstrom pulled his motorcycle next to the driver side window. In a later statement to authorities, Wallis said Williams then reached to the back seat and pulled out Wallis .32 caliber pistol and red four shots at Lindstrom. One struck Lindstrom in the head, killing him instantly. After the shooting, the two assailants drove off. Later, Wallis tried to get rid of the car by burning it. Lindstroms body was found a few hours later by a couple who were out walking along the road. His body was about a mile northeast of Elkhorn. It took nearly a year of investigation by authorities to nd Lindstroms killer. A Walworth County Board supervisor offered a reward of $1,500, quite a sum in 1927, for the arrest and conviction of the shooter. In the end, the break up of a car theft ring in Beloit and Rockford led police to Wallis and Williams. According to a 1929 edition of the Elkhorn Independent, Williams was already in federal prison for drug peddling. Wallis, in custody for burglary and arson, decided to talk and talk fast. In Walworth County Court, Wallis pleaded guilty to being an accessory to murder, admitting to being the driver of the Ford coupe, and implicating Williams in the shooting of Lindstrom. A jury found Williams guilty. Judge E.B. Belden sentenced both Wallis and Williams to life in prison. Lindstroms devotion to duty that warm June evening may have cost him his life. It may also have prevented a robbery later in that evening. In 2004, when Elkhorn Police Chief Joel Christenson submitted Lindstroms name for the national peace ofcers

memorial in Washington, D.C., he noted that Lindstroms police certication, the original police report of his shooting, and court documents pertaining to the trial of Williams and Wallis had all disappeared. No living relatives could be located, either. Al C. Exner Exner was a law enforcement two-fer. He was both a Lake Geneva police ofcer and a Walworth County Sheriffs deputy. He was also a tough cop with a tender heart. At 28 years old in 1931, he was already a hero. According to a Milwaukee Sentinel story that ran in May 1930, Exner rescued a kidnapped 10-year-old girl from an addled child molester after a high speed chase near Williams Bay that crossed at least one corneld before Exner was able to pull the eeing fugitive over. The kidnapper surrendered immediately, and the girl was returned to her family in Indiana. In May 1931, Exner and his partner, Lake Geneva Police Ofcer Herb Gebler, were in hot pursuit of a speeding car with Kansas license plates, when two shots from the eeing auto hit the ofcers pursuing squad, shattering the cars windshield. Neither ofcer was hurt, but they had to give up the pursuit. About 11 p.m. June 19, 1931, Exner heard shooting coming from neighbor Wallace Morgans garage. Exner, who was at home, told his wife to call Gebler. But Exner didnt wait for backup. He went to investigate and found Morgan and some of his friends drinking beer and shooting at the empty bottles. It was still Prohibition, and beer was illegal, as was shooting in the city limits. According to testimony taken at a coroners inquest, Exner reportedly went up to Morgan and said whoever was shooting had better confess, or hed run everyone in the garage to jail. Morgan reportedly pulled a .38 caliber pistol from his under his overalls and shot Exner just above the heart. Gebler arrived at just that moment, and red his service revolver at Morgan, killing him. The coroners jury ruled Exners death a murder, and Geblers shooting of Morgan justiable. Exner left behind a widow and 5year-old son. Years later, Albert Exner Jr., then 79 and living in Waukesha, told the Janesville Gazette that as part of his job, his father was tasked with catching stray dogs and taking them to the city dump to be shot. But the young ofcer often couldnt pull the trigger. Instead, hed take the dogs home and try to set up adoptions. We always had dogs running around the in backyard, which didnt make mom very happy, the younger Exner told the newspaper. Patrick R. Bolton Jr. Boltons tragic death in the early morning hours of Aug. 26, 1961, proves that a law enforcement ofcers job is dangerous, even if there are no bad guys around. Bolton, 31, had been on the Walworth County Sheriffs Department for less than a year when he and his partner for the evening, Deputy Jan Van Dreser, received the call of a one-car crash on County Highway J near Obrien Road, about 5 miles west of East Troy. The deputies responded and shortly after 2 a.m., they found a Chevy sedan in the ditch. The car had failed to negotiate a turn and hit a power pole. Van Dreser, in a recent telephone interview, said he remembered that the pole was broken, but lines were still suspended about 18 inches off the ground. Van Dreser said he didnt know whether the driver got out of his car on his own, or was assisted by Bolton. Van Dreser said he was in the car, treating the driver for minor injuries, when Bolton decided to make one more check of the accident scene. It was 2:45 a.m. Van Dreser said 1966 was a different world for sheriffs deputies. Back then we didnt have that many deputies and the training requirements were not as stringent, Van Dreser said. Still, Bolton

THE PATRICK R. BOLTON JR. memorial at the Walworth County Law Enforcement Center. Lake Geneva Ofcer Al C. Exner was an experienced ofcer. A U.S. Army veteran, he had been a village of Walworth police ofcer for two years before joining the sheriffs department. Van Dreser said he and Bolton had been friends at the former Walworth High School. Bolton lived in the Fontana area, Van Dreser lived in Walworth area. In high school, we ran around a little bit, Van Dreser said. Later, Van Dreser said he got to know Bolton as a police ofcer, and it inspired him to join the sheriffs department about six months after Bolton joined. He sure made a good example, he was very proud of his profession, Van Dreser said. I thought Id give it a try. Van Dreser said that as far as he can tell, his partner and friend left the squad car to make one more measurement of the skid marks. The deputies knew about the power lines being down and they knew where the wires were, Van Dreser said. Either Bolton slipped on wet grass or he became disoriented, Van Dreser said. According to the coroners report, Boltons arm apparently brushed against a live power line, and he was hit with 4,800 volts. Van Dreser said he saw a ash and heard someone cry out. He got out of the squad car and saw Bolton on the ground. An electric power company employee arrived on the scene just at that time, and the two men pulled Bolton away from the power lines. Van Dreser said they both did articial resuscitation on Bolton, as did members of the East Troy Rescue Squad, but to no avail. Bolton left a widow and three children. None of the survivors wished to talk to the press. Van Dreser said Boltons death led to changes in how the sheriffs deputies approached downed electrical wires. The deputies received in-house training from the electric company. And Van Dreser, who was deputy until he retired in 1991, made sure to remind younger deputies of the dangers of downed wires. Van Dreser, who lives in the Walworth area, said he still thinks of his fallen friend. It was just a warm summer night and he was out taking measurements, he said.

What to do with Linton welding shop

Linn commission expected to tackle zoning issue May 28
By Steve Targo LINN The property has lost its luster, said Jim Weiss, chairman of both the town and its plan commission, on the phone Friday. He was talking about a former welding shop in Linton, located on W4070 and W4062 Linton Road. Recently, Jon and Jeff Reed, of Reeds Construction and Pier Service, purchased the property. Operating as J&J Fabricating Real Estate LLC, theyre asking town and Walworth County ofcials to approve a rezone and conditional use permit request. If approved, it would allow them to remove the existing buildings on the property, replace them with two pole barns used for welding, equipment maintenance and construction and mechanical work. The permit would also allow Reeds to store piers and boat lifts outside. Right now, theyre running out of space for fabricating and storage at their South Shore Drive location, Weiss said. They felt (the Linton Road property) would be a better place for that operation. To authorize this type of use, the 0.65-acre parcel needs to be rezoned from R-1, which is a single-family residential zoning classication, to M-1, which is light industrial. Thats what the plan commission is expected to discuss at its May 28 meeting. Typically, the commission makes a recommendation to the town board. Then, the board would send its recommendation to county zoning ofcials, who have the nal say. At the an information-only commission meeting April 8. Weiss said some people who spoke in favor of the request, and others expressed concerns. Some are in favor because the property could use some sprucing. But the concerns lie within the existing character of that area a character which seems to have a split personality. Currently, residential and agricultural uses surround the former welding shop. Houses line the corner of Linton and Maple Ridge roads to the east. To the west is farmland. The west part of the property, which abuts the residential area, has been used as a welding shop for as long as I can remember, Weiss said. Now that ownership has changed hands, the issue comes before town and county ofcials. A similar request was turned down last year. In July, commission and town board members denied John Trossens request to rezone residential property near his business, The Pier, N1806 Linn Road, to commercial. He wanted to build a storage shed to house commercial vehicles, boats, ice shanties and other equipment.

Puppet show Peaceful place for Pell Lake Trinitys comes to garden helps the hungry, plant sale teaches value
LINN Tiny Tempest Farm, W4355 Mohawk Road, will host its organic vegetable and herb plant sale and a family-oriented puppet show Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18. Although the farm has held an annual plant sale since 2009, The Selsh Giant will make its local debut. Recently, the show created by puppeteer Blair Thomas and singer-songwriter Michael Peter Smith was presented at the Milwaukee Art Museum. According to a press release, the 35-minute show is based on a tale by Oscar Wilde. The Selsh Giant is about a grumpy old giant who forbids children in his village from playing in his beautiful garden. After the children are locked out, the trees and owers refuse to grow. The garden plunges into an eternal winter. But one morning, the children sneak back into the garden and bring with them the joyous rebirth of spring. Originally, the production was commissioned by the Chicago Childrens Theater. In January 2008, the theater held the world premiere of The Selsh Giant. Thomas is an award-winning puppeteer who has started puppet companies. He was the rst artist to ll the Jim Henson Artist-inResidence position at the University of Maryland in 2006. Thomas lives on the farm with his wife, Sheri Doyel, and their twin sons. Smith began his musical career in his teens. In the late 1980s, he wrote the music for the Steppenwolf production of John Steinbecks The Grapes of Wrath and won two Antoinette Perry Awards for that production. He went on to win awards and create, perform and record music for other productions, as well as sharing the stage with Pete Seeger. As for the Tiny Tempest Farm plant sale, all plants are grown on the farm, using organic potting soil, seeds and fertilizers. Expect to see everything from arugula to zucchini and anise to zinnias. Organic eggs also will be sold. Patrons can make purchases directly from the greenhouse, ask for gardening advice and pet Gracie and Delight, the farms Nubian goat twins. Suggest donation to see The Selsh Giant is $5 for adults and children. Limited seating, reservations recommended. Email or call (262) 3744903.

of going green
By Steve Targo BLOOMFIELD Chris Roth went green a long time ago. On the phone Friday, Roth said he and his wife have a geothermally heated, Energy Star-built home. And he and his wife grow most of the food they eat. My family always had a garden when I was growing up, Roth said. I guess its just the way I was brought up, to conserve what we have, to try to use it in the most efcient way possible. Theres also the element of healthy eating when growing your own food. You cant really live on junk food very well, Roth said. Some of Roths food was grown on his plots in the community garden at Trinity Church. But Roth, the garden coordinator, said it wasnt his idea to create the garden. He said that came from his brother-inlaw, Trinity pastor Brian Metke. It all started back in 2008, Roth said. Pastor Brian went on sabbatical, saw gardens like this in other congregations and approached me with the idea. He wanted to make Trinity more green. That fall, they plowed about an acre of land near the church that had been fallow for approximately two years, Roth said.

Tips from Trinitys garden coordinator

Every year is different, Chris Roth, coordinator of Trinitys community garden, said Friday. Thats one of the biggest challenges, the weather. Its something you cant control. But heres some tips Roth provided via email Sunday which may help in sustaining a bountiful garden. Maintenance: Keep up on your garden. Things like weeding and garden insect pests can get out of control if you dont stay on top of things. Spending just a little time in the garden every couple days really can make a big difference. Mulch: I like using grass clippings. They help hold moisture in the ground, create a dense blanket which helps act like a weed barrier, keep your shoes from getting muddy and adds to the soil when tilled in at the end of the season. If you do decide to use grass clippings, make sure that they are from a lawn that has not been treated with any chemicals like a Weed-and-Feed because residues from some of these chemicals can be detrimental to sensitive garden plants. Tomato cages: The best tomato cages Ive used are the ones that I made myself from concrete remesh material, the wire fencing that is used to reinforce concrete.

Plots became open to the public during the 2009 growing season. There are about 32, according to Roth, and each year, between 13 and 18 participants take over about 20 plots on average. I think it just provides people who maybe live in apartments or have a house with a real shady yard a chance to do their own gardening, he said. Roth said the all-organic, pesticide-free garden gives people the chance to garden without having to till or perform routine maintenance. The work is done for the gardeners, Roth said. We maintain the grounds and the garden. A lot of people come there and say its almost like a park. Its a peaceful place that they enjoy being in. Apparently, Trinity gardeners have also been helping those less fortunate. Roth said produce from the garden plots takes up a free will offering table at church. If people need food, they can take it, he said. Or, people can donate money. Proceeds go to the W.C. Resource Center Food Pantry in the town of Geneva. Since 2010, (when) we began the free will offering table, weve been able to donate about $564 to the W.C. Resource Center, Roth said. The community garden also provides the public with educational opportunities. Roth said Chrissy Wen, from the UW-Extension ofce, has given presentations on ways to keep garden pests under control. He said sometimes, extra plants arrive to the garden courtesy of Badger High Schools greenhouse program. And if people dont know much about gardening but want to learn, Roth said theyve got them covered. We do try, if theres a new gardener, to match them up with a mentor, he said. According to Roth, they denitely reinforce the community aspect of a community garden. I always hear people talking about how theyre growing, what theyre growing, pest control, he said. Its really neat how people share their time and knowledge out there. Roth said being coordinator, having to maintain the garden, is a lot of work. But the appreciative feedback he said he has received makes it, for him, a labor of love. People really appreciate the garden being there, he said. To get started with a plot in the garden, call Roth at (262) 617-1929. Standard plots are 20-by-20 feet. Half plots of 10-by20 also are available.

Good tales to tell in Brookwood

Linn/Reeds wants to use old welding shop

Weiss said the Reeds and Trossen requests share a similarity. Both involve changing the zoning of land to uses contrary to what was stated in the towns Comprehensive Plan. John Trossen wanted to expand business or commercial (use) into an area deemed residential, Weiss said. Reeds wants to expand manufacturing into an area slotted agricultural in the Comprehensive Plan. But theres a difference. He said Trossen has two separate parcels one zoned for business, which is where The Pier is located, and one zoned for residential use. He wanted to expand his business on the residentially zoned property. This Reeds property is one parcel, currently with split zoning, (which is) two zoning classications on one parcel. The county doesnt like split zoning on same parcels, Weiss said. If the land used on this parcel were split into separate lots, these lots would be substandard, he said. Rest assured, there are a number of substandard lots throughout the county, and throughout the town of Linn, but the county frowns upon creating new ones, Weiss said. The split zoning makes it not so clear of a case between whether allowing the new owners to clean up the property versus the potential for impacting the existing use in that area. How does Weiss feel about it? He said ofcials should look at how the Reeds request would affect the surrounding area. Is this an area where they increase manufacturing zoning? He said he will not comment on that at this time, but he offered this bit of advice to fellow ofcials. We need to look real hard, going forward, what is the appropriate zoning classication, Weiss said.

Police award citizens, ofcers for service

Citizens and ofcers were recognized by the Lake Geneva Police Department for their service and courage during the annual police awards ceremony May 9. n This years Civilian Gallantry Award went to Janet A. Hammarstrom. According to the award presentation, on Aug. 10, 2012, at about 8:25 a.m., while driving on Wells Street, Hammarstrom saw a small child walking along the street unattended. Hammarstrom pulled over into a nearby parking lot. She sat the child in her car while she called police. When police arrived, the child was wearing no socks or shoes and was very dirty. Ofcers later learned that the mother had left the child unattended on several other occasions in which the child walked out of the residence and into the nearby parking lots. The child went to child protective services and arrangements were made to provide the child and her siblings with a safe home. According to the awards citiation, Hammarstroms decision to take the time to show concern and care led to the child being rescued from neglect. n Ofcer William Walser was awarded the Police Star for his actions that saved a man in the throes of a violent, drug-induced dementia. Walser was called to the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa on July 2, 2012 to assist a Walworth County Sheriffs deputy who was attempting to subdue a naked man who jumped from a second oor window. The man attacked the deputy and also smashed the windshield on the deputys car. As Walser was responding the call, he met a security guard running the other way. The man had also smashed the windshield on the security guards vehicle. The security guard warned Walser that the naked assailant was out of control. When Walser arrived at the scene, he confronted an out-of-control man, who exhibited signs of excited delirium, which is bizarre behavior resulting from elevated body temperature caused by the use of stimulant drugs. Walser identied himself as an ofcer and ordered the man to stop resisting.


JANET A. HAMMARSTROM (middle) received the Civilian Gallantry Award at the Lake Geneva Police Departments awards ceremony on May 9. Hammarstrom is anked by Assistant Chief Mike Reuss and Police Chief Michael Rasmussen. (Top left, middle) Courtney Bonk was named employee of the year. (Bottom left, middle) William Walser received a Police Star for his actions that saved a man in the throes of a violent, drug-induced dementia. The man made an aggressive motion toward Walser who then used his Taser to take the attacker to the ground. The man refused to stop resisting, and Walser had to use his Taser two more times to gain control. Because of Walsers quick actions, no bystanders were injured, and the arrested man was able to get medical attention for a condition that might have otherwise caused his death. n Courtney Bonk was named employee of the year. Described as someone with a great work ethic, Bonk started with the department ve years ago as a date entry/ records clerk. Courtney played a key role working with department supervisors, detectives and patrol staff to ensure that all of the changes needed in the departments records procedures to increase the quality and accuracy of records.

The award caught Bonk by surprise. She wiped tears away several times as the citation for her award was read out loud. Then, accepting the Employee of the Year plaque, she whispered to Chief Mike Rasmussen and Assistant Chief Michael Reuss: You guys are really sneaky. n City Clerk Mike Hawes swore in new reserve ofcers Caleb Tracy, Zachary Smith, Russ Vogt, Taylor Bass, Shawn Goetschow, Michael Algiers, Daniel Kallman and Hannah Hooper.

Retired eduacators give out grant

Southern Lakes United Educators-Retired recently awarded more than $1,000 in grants to six teachers whose proposals would benet a number of students over an extended period of time. Teachers in Kenosha, Walworth and Racine counties were awarded these grants for projects designed to enhance the learning opportunities of their students. Third-grade students at Brookwood Elementary School in Genoa City are experiencing the joy of reading. Teacher Jaime Juchems wrote the grant application for three MP3 players and 11 audio books. She also chose to share the materials with her third grade colleagues. Other recipients were Erin Miner; Bristol Elementary School; Vicki Vieau, Salem Elementary; Jill Brede, Union Grove Elementary; Elaine Calouette, Raymond School in Franksville; and Sarah Lindh, Riverview School in Silver Lake. There were nine applications for grants. SLUE-R members wanted to help everyone with their excellent projects but were limited by the available funds. The membership of SLUE-Retired includes educators and support staff members who remain involved in education. Proceeds from the sale of donated lunches at meetings, contributions from active and inactive members and the annual silent auction provided funds for the grants.

The Lake Como Sanitary District Commission meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. The meetings take place at the District Administration Building at N3420 Dell Place. Health Information Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agencys safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune systems disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers.

Parking study begins this week

Rich & Associates started its parking study in Lake Geneva this week. The city hired the consultants for $26,325 in November last year to do a comprehensive parking study. Rich & Associates of Southeld, Mich. were the lowest bidder of three nalists. The city staff had its kick-off meeting with Annaka Norris, Richs project manager, at 8 a.m. Tuesday. Richs consultants then did a walkthrough of city public parking facilities. At 8 a.m. Wednesday, the consultants met with business owners and in the eveing, an open house is scheduled for the senior room at city hall from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. All members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in discussion about the comprehensive downtown parking study being conducted by Rich & Associates. The consulting engineers will continue to collect parking data on Thursday. Friday will be a free day, but data collection will resume on Saturday. Alderwoman Sarah Hill, who sits on the city parking commission, said the city wants the engineers to meet with residents from the Maple Park District and with

representatives from the company that maintains the citys parking kiosks. The parking study will also rely on a survey of parking users and eld research and analysis of data generated by the new kiosk parking station system. Hill The study will take a comprehensive approach to parking in Lake Geneva, including the following areas: Parking policy, such as time limits, permits, fees and nes; parking allocation for visitors, employees and residents; loading zones, handicap accessible spaces, and nancing and capital improvements in the form of new parking, repairs to existing areas and signage. Rich & Associates will evaluate each public lot to determine whether the lots need to be redesigned to increase capacity and improve trafc ow. The study will be done over a 16-week period. The project will conclude with a nal report document and public presentation.

To obtain a summary of the source water assessment please contact Neal Kolb at (262) 248-2077 Educational Information The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally- occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems. Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health. Number of Contaminants Required to be Tested This table displays the number of contaminants that were required to be tested in the last ve years. The CCR may contain up to ve years worth of water quality results. If a water system tests annually, or more frequently, the results from the most recent year are shown on the CCR.

Hennerley/He is down-to-earth
Hennerley was no stranger to the area even before he came to Lake Geneva. He graduated from Delavan-Darien High School in 1969 and from UW-Whitewater with a political science degree in 1977. For awhile, he was a lobbyist in Madison for the Wisconsin Wholesale Beer Distributors. In April, 1980, he was hired to manage the convention and visitors bureau for the Lake Geneva chamber. Shortly thereafter, Hennerley took over the role he held until last Thursday. He was seen at local events from Venetian Fest to Winterfest to the art shows held in downtown Lake Geneva each summer. He lobbied for the chamber in front of the city council and was the citys tour guide for dignitaries from governors to businessmen. Yet he was also downto-earth enough to talk to the less well-heeled and important, even reporters. Hennerley could smell out the disingenuous and was usually up for a good political debate. Some might say that he was a bit old-fashioned and set in his ways; he grew up in an era when a handshake was bond. His view of Lake Geneva was more informal than slick or stuffy. Some may have criticized him, but none doubted his affability or his love for the community. He was a xture, as was his silver pickup truck that could be found parked at the back of the chamber parking lot. Hennerley was the master of ceremonies for the annual chamber meeting held, in recent years, at Grand Geneva. There, he willingly ribbed everyone and anyone especially himself. Publicly, at least, that twinkle in the eye will be missed by the city he championed. Privately, nothing will change. George doesnt need a title to be George.

Victoria House to be razed

Interior of former bed and breakfast in sad shape
It may well be the oldest standing building on Lake Genevas Main Street. For now. A demolition permit is pending for Victorian Lodging, 1105 Main St., (at the corner of Main and Warren streets), according to Barney Brugger, Lake Geneva building and zoning administrator. He said the new owner plans to build a single-family residence on the site. An architectural salvage company is now going through the building, pulling out old woodworking, staircases, xtures and lumber for reuse elsewhere. According to a history of 1105 Main St., written by area historian Ginny Hall, the house was built in 1869. The white exterior of the building seems little changed from the late 19th century when it was home to a local banker. But the interior is in sad shape. The 5,000-square-foot building has been divided into 19 separate units. lists it as a bed and breakfast providing economy/ limited service. Price of the rooms was not listed. Fred Gahl, owner of Architectural Artisans, the company that is salvaging interior architectural details, said the inside looks like an old-fashioned ophouse. The carpeting, where it isnt bare, is in riotous hues of red and orange. Beautifully decorated replaces have been closed off and cooking ranges have been installed in some of the rooms. Space in the rooms upstairs is severely limited by the slanting


TIF/How it works
We are incredibly fortunate to have such a strong financial tool thats fully funded, Hill said. To walk in today and say TIF should be closed is ridiculous, said Kupsik. Hill pointed out that some projects, like replacing lights on north Broad Street, could be funded by TIF. Kupsik said TIF should continue until all the projects are completed. In the public comment portion of the meeting, longtime TIF critic Ed Yaeger was among those advocating closing the district. He, too, agreed that it had served the city well early in its existence, but emphasized that TIF is a tax, even if it isnt stated as such on city tax documents. Former Mayor Spyro Speedo Condos said he respected the concerns of Yaeger and others, but said the improvements that the city has made by using TIF couldnt have been done without it. He suggested that the council should look long-term and said TIF should be kept open as long as possible. He added that he felt TIF has helped the entire community. TIF 4 currently has about $6 million in its fund, but $2 million more is expected by the end of 2013. Among projects already done: The Highway 120 bypass, the Edwards Boulevard extension and a variety of lake front improvements. Among the possibilities for future spending is a parking lot and upgrading current lots. By law, spending in TIF 4 must end by 2017 and the district must close by 2022. How TIF works TIF funds are tax dollars generated through development or improvements within the district. When a district is created, a base value is established. All the taxing bodies from the district continue to collect money from the base value throughout the life of the district. However, any taxes collected above the base value go to the TIF fund. The underlying assumption of a TIF district is that no new development would have taken place if the district had not been created. Public improvement costs would have been too prohibitive for the community or a developer to do alone. As the number indicates, this is the citys fourth TIF district. The other three have since been closed, their projects either completed or folded into TIF 4.


AWAITING REMOVAL. Fred Gahl, left, and Dennis Dahl, right, of Architectural Artisans, Lake Geneva, stand by a staircase the salvage team hopes to remove from the former Victorian Lodging, 1105 W. Main St., Lake Geneva, before the building is demolished. Built in 1869, the former boys school and private home is one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city. rooine of the house, but it appears that upstairs rooms, some no wider than 6 or 7 feet, were rented out to single occupants. The two-story structure includes a turret room that overlooks Library Park and Geneva Lake. The bottom quarter of the outside door to the tower is broken off. The repairs consisted of taking an old dresser drawer and wedging it up against the locked door to keep out the drafts. Can you imagine trying to sleep up here when the weather outside was three below zero? Gahl asked. The house was originally built as a boys boarding school by the Rev. C.A. Williams and called the Geneva Home School for Boys. The boarding school lasted for ve-and-a-half years, when poor health forced Williams to close it down. Alvin E. Tyler, president of First National Bank of Lake Geneva then bought the building in 1886 and turned it into a single-family residence. Bathrooms were added in the 1920s when the house was converted to a tourist hostel.

Public parking meeting

Downtown parking in Lake Geneva will be the subject of a meeting this Wednesday, May 15, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the second oor senior center at city hall. Its billed as an opportunity to learn about the city of Lake Geneva Parking Study conducted by consultants Rich & Associates. Participants will be able to ll out a parking survey and ask questions.

Meeting law
Schiche said Care for Lake Geneva is not looking for damages or punishment (the ne for an elected ofcial violating the open meetings law is $25. Instead, Schiche said the group just wants the city to acknowledge that it made a secret deal with the developer. In the court document led in circuit court, CLG claims that the city council discussed the agreement during a June 13, 2011, closed meeting. The complaint alleges that during the closed meeting, the city council considered and voted to enter into the memorandum with Geneva Ridge, which bound the city to amend the citys comprehensive plan. But City Attorney Dan Draper said the group is looking for something that isnt there. I dont know what document theyre talking about, said Draper. He said the group already has the settlement document, signed by a federal judge, in which the city agreed to amend its master plan for the 718 acres that Geneva Ridge Development planned to develop. That, said Draper, is the only document between the city and Geneva Ridge Joint Venture that refers to the citys master plan. The memorandum of understanding between the city and Geneva Ridge Joint Venture plotted out steps the city was to take to have a multi-million dollar lawsuit dismissed by the developer. The memorandum was released to the public on Dec. 10, after a Milwaukee law rm, hired by Care for Lake Geneva Inc., a local citizens group, led a writ of mandamus demanding its release. The memos release was one day before the scheduled hearing on the writ of mandamus in Walworth County Circuit Court. Under the memorandum, the city was to redesignate nine contiguous parcels totaling 718 acres of land on the citys south side from agricultural to planned neighborhood (PN) and planned mixed use (PMU) in the citys Smart Growth master plan by Aug. 31, 2011. The master plan was amended to redesignate those properties to PN and PMU on Aug. 30, 2011. In return, shortly thereafter, Geneva Ridge Joint Venture dropped its lawsuit against the city.

Ornate map shows details of Geneva Lake

By Robert Ireland WILLIAMS BAY Its a map with a lot of history and a little bit of mystery, and as far as anyone knows only three copies were ever made. At 5-by-9 feet, the hand-drawn map shows in ornate detail property lines around Geneva Lake. Not only does the map indicate the locations of the property lines, but it also lists who owns the land. The map was made in 1930 by Q.A. Hagmen, Delavan. The map shows trails for stage coaches and it even identies where Chief Big Foots wife is buried. There are also numerous pieces of artwork scattered across the map, which includes everything from stage coaches to sh. All three known copies of the map are in William Bay and in private ownership, and one of those owners is hoping someone will see this story and maybe have some more insight on why the map was created. How the Casellis came to own two copies of the map? Before coming to Williams Bay, Nick and JoAnn Caselli were jewelers in Illinois. When they moved to Williams Bay, they wanted to buy a commercial building and went to Hotton Real Estate, on Geneva Street, and asked if there were any commercial buildings for sale. The real estate agent immediately said that the Hotton building was on the market. The couple has an afnity for history, and the Hotton Building was erected in 1890. They also saw the map displayed in the lobby. JoAnn told Nick that she didnt want to buy the building, but she wanted the map. The real estate agent overheard her and immediately said the map was included in the sale.

GLW Chamber names the areas best citizens

By Jade Bolack FONTANA Its rare to meet someone who inuences a huge lifestyle change. Its rarer often to speak with three of those inuential powerhouses on the same day. May 1, the Geneva Lake West Chamber of Commerce announced the winners of its 39th annual Citizen of the Year award. Three winners are chosen, one from each community on the west end of the lake Williams Bay, Fontana and Walworth. Jacob Ries, chairman of the chambers award committee, said they received so many worthy nominations for the award. It was hard to limit it to just three, Ries said. Its good to know that we have so many caring and giving individuals in our community. harlie Mestek didnt really want to share the news of his award with everyone. The Williams Bay teacher said he was honored and grateful, but he didnt want to make a big deal out of it. I just feel very fortunate to be surrounded by supportive staff and great kids, he said. Im grateful that I get to be a part of this school system and the community. While he walks through the hallways at the school, he signals a timeout to the students he approaches and asks them all the same question. Who are you? First, they said their names. Mestek asked again. Who are you really? Then students share their stories. One student was on the baseball team. One student acted in school plays. Mestek said he urges his students and theyre all his students to join extracurricular clubs at school. It gets them invested in this place, more than academics, he said. Mestek is involved with every extracurricular event, too. I try to go to all the games, the dances, the concerts, the plays, he said. I like all the students, and I hope they say the same thing about me. With the bond he has with the students, Mestek is changing the way they learn and live. He was inuential in bringing the Operation Click program to the high school. The program has willing students sign a contract that they will not text while driving, will always wear their seat belts and will not drive after drinking alcohol. Students who sign and stay out of trouble for the year are eligible to win a car. Mestek said hes had numerous students come back to the school after graduation to thank him, and many students send him mementos of their successes in life. Their success in life is an award in itself, he said. Its what makes this worth it. Mestek has taught in Williams Bay for 10 years and 35 years prior in Illinois schools. Hes the at-risk coordinator for the junior and senior high school, and he works with students in core subjects like English, math and history.

Bay board, residents review school options

By Chris Schultz WILLIAMS BAY Construction consultants working for the Williams Bay School District revealed three possible congurations for a new elementary school that would be built on the 88-acre site that is now the home of the districts junior and senior high school. The three options, labeled A, B and C, were developed by Eppstein-Uhen Architects, Milwaukee. Cost estimates were developed by Scherrer Construction Co., Burlington. Eric Dufek, architect with Uhen, said the concept is to build an elementary school with a capacity of 400. The schools enrollment is now 309. He said the plan is also to have a junior-senior high school with a capacity of 400. The junior-senior high building now has 269 students. To balance the schools enrollments, Dufek proposed moving the sixth grade into the junior high and turning the elementary school into a 4K-fth grade building. In all three options, the new building would have a gym twice the size of the current elementary school gym to create safety zones away from the basketball courts. Also in all three options, the architects are also proposing a 600-seat auditorium, considered adequate to handle all school concerts and programs. Now, the auditorium spaces in both the junior-senior high and elementary school buildings are not sufcient to include all parents during a school performance or event. Dufek said the site has topological issues, and new DNR rules require that storm water remain on site. It cannot be allowed to ow on neighboring properties. n Option A calls for a two-story elementary school connected to the junior-senior high building. The new elementary school would have a cafeteria, media center and art and music center. The elementary school would have a separate entrance from the junior-senior high building. The two schools would share a 600-seat auditorium. The access drive would be relocated further east and bus trafc for the two schools would be kept separate. Estimated cost: $23 million to $25 million. n Option B also features a two-story elementary school building, but detached from the junior-senior high school. The access drive would remain where it is, but bus loading and unloading to the two schools would still be separated. The auditorium would be attached to the junior-senior high building. The two buildings would also share a kitchen at

Gahl got the nal look at the house. Architectural Artisans secured the interior salvage rights to the building, removing 110year-old architectural artifacts and items, including wavyglassed windows, cabinets, moldings, electrical xtures and even the ornate, hand-carved staircases. Books, furniture and medicine cabinets and an old 1930s-era stove and range were rescued from the condemned building, he said. Even the wood ooring, made of evergreen shipped in from Washington state and marked with the year 1902, were pulled up and saved from the wrecker. All of the materials will be offered for sale or repurposed so a piece of Lake Genevas past can be preserved, Gahl said. The new owner plans to build new on the property, he said. Architectural Artisans not only saves classic architectural details for future generations, but it also minimizes the impact on local landlls, Gahl said.

the junior-senior high building. Dufek said the two-story conguration for the elementary building was for energy efciency. Most heat from a building escapes through the roof. A two story building has the same roof area as a single-story building half its size. Estimated cost: $24 million to $26 million. n Option C would turn the junior-senior high building into a 4K-12 building. The entire building would remain one story. A new wing would house the elementary grades, and portions of what is now the junior-senior high school would be turned over to the elementary grades. What the junior-senior highs would lose to the lower grades would be made up for with a new addition at the junior-senior high school. It would also include the 600seat auditorium. The schools would share a cafeteria, a media center and an art and music center. Estimated cost: $20.5 million to $22.5 million. Cost of the auditorium, included in all estimates, is about $5.5 million, said Ben Templin, vice president of preconstruction for Scherrer Construction. Those ideas were then turned over to 92 district residents who showed for a special school district workshop at the elementary school gym on Monday evening. Eleven round tables were set up and the participants sat around them, listening to the options. In the end, the least expensive option seemed to have the least support. While it seemed that many in the room wouldnt mind seeing their property taxes increase by $100 per $1,000 of equalized assessed valuation per year to pay for the new building. What to do with the old building should a new structure be built didnt receive quite the same consensus. Some would sell it. Others would raze it and use the land as open space. Others would do selective demolition and use parts of the building for community recreation or the arts. There was at least one suggestion that the old building be converted to a K-3, while another table raised the suggestion that Williams Bay School District should go to a K-8 district and send its high school students elsewhere. Superintendent Vance Dalzin said the district is not seeking to build a new school because of population growth, but rather because the building is outdated. A recent study through the Applied Population Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, found that Williams Bay School Districts enrollment will increase only by about 100 over the next 10 years.

Map/Why was the map drawn? Why were only three maps created?
The Casellis decided to buy the building in 1993, and they made sure that ownership of map was also written into the contract. At that time, the real estate agent told the Casellis the little bit she knew about the map. They were told that there were only three copies of the map in existence, and only two were accounted for. Nick is a Lions Club member and is the owner of the other map. Nick talked with the other owner who also heard that there were three copies made but only two accounted for. After they bought the building, a woman cleaning out the back ofce came up to JoAnn and presented her with a giant folded copy of the nal map. It had been led away. JoAnn immediately called a museum to learn how to preserve the map and how to handle paper that was made in the 1930s. She followed the instructions, and Nick built a large frame to display the map. The third map is in overall good condition. It has one tear and a few marks of white paint. To the Casellis, the map is a priceless treasure and they believe that in the future it should be enjoyed by the public. The couple wrote into their will that one of the maps will go to the village of Williams Bay and the other to the Geneva Lake Museum. After the third map was discovered, they searched their building high and low hoping to nd more historical treasurers. They found a blueprint of the building, which showed that the post ofce was originally suppose to be built there. However, other than the map and blueprint, they found nothing else. The mystery The map shows in detail property lines around the entire lake, and the names property owners. People will call us up and ask to look up someone, Nick said. Without fail, if that person owned lakefront property in the 1930s their name is on the maps. Now, what the Casellis want to know is why did Q.A. Hagmen draw the map? Why was it done, it must have been a labor of love, JoAnn said. The amount of time taken to draw each map must have been incredible, JoAnn said. The art work is off the charts, she said. To do the background checks to authenticate it (most have been time consuming). There is literally hundreds of names. Who is Q.A. Hagmen? How long was he in Delavan? Why were only three maps created? Im hoping someone will read this and know why, JoAnn said. On the third map, the one found in the real estate ofce, there are numbers written in pencil around the shore. The pencil marks on the shore we rst thought were pier numbers, but they are not pier numbers, JoAnn said. What are they and why were they written is another question the Casellis hope to have answered. The Casellis hope to nd answers to these questions, but in the meantime they just plan on enjoying the maps.

Walworth school retains Pheasant Ridge

By Jade Bolack WALWORTH The Pheasant Ridge subdivision will remain within the Walworth Elementary School District, despite parents appealing to the Department of Public Instruction to join the Fontana School District. Many residents within the subdivision had sent petitions to both Walworth and Fontana school districts to detach from Walworth and attach to Fontana. The subdivision is within the village of Fontana but within the Walworth school district. Fontana Elementary approved the attachment, but Walworth Elementary denied the request. The residents needed approval from both school districts. Parents appealed to the DPI and argued their case in front of a three-person panel Friday, May 10. Walworth District Administrator Pam Knorr said the panel voted to maintain the district as is. Knorr said Walworth would lose a large part of its tax base if the subdivision was detached from the district. Thats about $12.2 million in property value, Knorr said in a phone interview May 13. We estimated that with the houses that it would be $16.3 million. Our attorney did a bit of calculation for us. Thats the amount the school district can levy against. We estimated that it would be $79,000 (in revenue to the district).

Going forward, we will investigate other options that we may have to try to detach. The majority of our residents are still in favor of it, and no one in our neighborhood is opposed to making the switch, Eric Nyman said.
Knorr presented the tax information to the DPI panel, along with other supporting information. I presented 12 exhibits, Knorr said. Kelly Freeman (school board president) spoke of the tradition of the district and the history. Knorrs exhibits included boundary maps of the districts and municipalities. The subdivision, north of County Highway B on Indian Hills Road, is right on the border of the village of Fontana and the town of Walworth. Eric Nyman, acting spokesman for the Pheasant Ridge residents seeking detachment, said he was disappointed with the decision of the panel. We feel we were able to demonstrate that the nancial impact on the Walworth district would have been minimal, Nyman said. However the panel did not feel that our arguments for a smaller school and better alignment with community boundaries were compelling enough to switch districts. Nyman said the redestricting process is designed to maintain the status quo. The boundaries will remain where they currently stand, he said. Going forward, we

McKinley/I convinced myself that it was OK because he convinced me that it was OK

Men dont have sex with children, she said. Both of Victim 1s parents said the case, including the media coverage, has caused emotional turmoil in their lives. Her life shattered like a greenhouse in a hurricane, Victim 1s mother said. If there is something I could offer to God to erase this event I would, Victim 1s father said. Victim 1s father asked the judge for the maximum sentence of 25 years initial connement. This way he would be released from prison when he is in his 50s. A man in his 50s approaching teenage girls will be immediately seen for what he is a pervert, Victim 1s father said. He said a lengthy sentence was also necessary to protect other children from McKinley. I ask that you sentence him not only to punish him, I ask that you sentence him to protect the other 15-year-old girls he wishes to molest, Victim 1s father said. Grube asked for a lengthy prison sentence, but didnt make a specic recommendation to the judge. girls hair and skin while she was asleep. No girl his age would like him, Victim 2 said. The third girl During the hearing, Grube said McKinley was in the process of grooming a third 15-year-old girl. When police checked McKinleys Facebook page, McKinley posted that he was considering moving to Texas. A 15-yearold responded that she didnt want to see her boyfriend leave. Police investigated the relationship that McKinley had with that girl, and discovered sexual messages in which McKinley talked to the child about sex and asked her to send pictures of her naked. The defense Dr. Melissa Westndorf, a clinical and forensic psychologist, evaluated McKinley in February and found that he had a low to a low-moderate risk to reoffend. She said McKinely suffers from depression and has some characteristics of borderline personality disorder. However, she was careful not to say he has borderline personality disorder. Westndorf said McKinley also isnt considered sexually deviant by actuarial purposes. During a cross-examination, Grube asked Westndorf how much she was paid to perform her evaluation. She responded $3,500, but said her payment didnt inuence her diagnoses. McKinleys attorney Jeff Koepke asked Race to place McKinley on a period of probation. He asked that a prison sentence be imposed and stayed, which means McKinley would only serve the sentence if he violated the terms of his probation. Koepke said that McKinley, according to Westndorfs diagnoses, is not sexually deviant nor a pedophile. He is immature and has bad judgement, Koepke said. Koepke said McKinley has a good work history, and volunteers with numerous charitable organizations. He also read a letter of apology that McKinley had written to his family and Victim 1. out the hearing and also shed tears as his attorney read his statement. When given a chance to speak, McKinleys voice was shaky, and he again apologized. Im deeply sorry for everyone who is involved, and I hope to be able to nd the treatment to help me move on and deal with everything that has happened, McKinley said. After Race announced the sentence, McKinley was placed in handcuffs and escorted out of the courtroom. He will likely spend four to six weeks in the Walworth County jail before he is transported to the Dodge Correctional Institution, Waupun. All male inmates are rst sent to the Dodge Correctional Institution, a maximum-security prison, where they are processed. After about a month, McKinley will likely be transported to another state prison. Race said McKinley had a good life as a child. He lived in one of the best communities in Walworth County, Race said. McKinley graduated from Badger High School in 2003 and was on the prom court. He also was on the golf team. He grew up in a gated community with private golf courses, Race said. Now, for the next 10 years, McKinley will live in a different kind of gated community.

How he groomed his victims McKinley met Victim 1 when she was a freshman in high school. He took a special interest in Victim 1, and sent her text messages and messages on Facebook. However, he also showed a temper and when he didnt get his way he would threaten to commit suicide. One night McKinley made suicidal threats and the next day he came to basketball practice with bandages on his wrist, Victim 1 said. McKinley also took a photograph of an engagement ring, and he emailed the picture to the girl with a promise that they would get married in the future. In its simplest form, he became her coach and he groomed her, Grube said. This case is all about manipulation. When the court proceedings with Victim 1 were occurring, McKinley was sending Facebook messages to Victim 2 urging her to visit him in Texas. At that point, the girl was over 18, but his relationship with her began when she was a child. I convinced myself that it was OK because he convinced me that it was OK, McKinley McKinley cried several times throughshe said. Victim 2 said McKinley had tied her down and taken nude photographs of her when she was underage. He also would send her repeated text messages and when she didnt respond he started text messaging her sister asking why she wasnt responding.

Citizens: Pagel, Ackman give back to community


CHERIE ACKMAN, of Williams Bay, won the Geneva Lake West Chamber of Commerce award. Ackman is involved in a number of charities including Dining for Women. herie Ackman got advance notice about her recognition. Ive been in California for part of the winter, she said during a phone interview May 2. My girlfriend called me last week to tell me ... they didnt want me to be completely surprised. After she accepted her award, Ackman started crying. They wanted me to say a few words, so they thought it would be nice to have time to think about what I wanted to say, she said. I was very surprised to get the award. I dont do any of the volunteer work to get awards. I was completely overwhelmed, really taken aback. Ackman is active in many charity groups, and she even started a local chapter of Dining for Women. I started the chapter in Fontana, she said. I called a few friends and asked what they thought ... I think our rst meeting we might have had ve women. That was about two and a half years ago. Since then weve met almost every month. Weve had as little as ve and as many as fourteen or fteen women. The women gather for a potluck dinner and donate the money saved from dining

out at a restaurant to a specic charity each month. The chapter does seem to keep growing, Ackman said. If I forget to set up a meeting, my girlfriends are calling me to ask when were getting together. Her volunteer and charity work goes back many years. Ackman said it was easy to be involved when her children were younger and still in school. I did a lot when the kids were little, she said. It was just kind of fun being involved in school ... when they get out of school, you have to work harder at nding things that suit you and best t the needs of the community. Ackman is on the board of directors with VIP Services Inc. and is always doing something. I hope that Im setting an example for my children, she said. Were in a small community, and the opportunity does come up to do a lot of volunteer work. oyce Pagel invited some of her friends to the award ceremony May 1. I dont know if it was supposed to be a surprise or not, she said. My friend Trudy (Schubert) told me. Shes the one that nominated me. Pagel was surprised that she won, even more so after she heard the other award recipients. I dont feel like I do that


JOYCE PAGEL was named a Citizen of the Year by the Geneva Lake West Chamber of Commerce. Pagel has volunteered on the villages Plan Commission since 1976. much, Pagel said. Those other winners ... they do a whole lot more than I do. Pagel has been active in local government for many years. I was the co-chairman for the 175th anniversary celebration for the village of Walworth, she said. We worked all summer on that. She has also been on the village plan commission since 1976. I dont know if thats why I was nominated, Pagel said. Its not really volunteer work. Over the years, though, Ive done a lot of different things. Pagel is active in her church, Immanuel United Church of Christ in Walworth, and she was active in the schools while her children were younger. We do a lot of different fundraisers (at the church), she said. I do the agging for the triathatlons, and we do a cream puff sale. We drive the people-mover at the county fair. Pagel said she volunteers wherever there is a need. I guess I just pitch in whenever someone needs me, she said. I like helping people and doing things. You meet a lot of great people. Currently, Pagel works part time as the administrative assistant at the Linn Police Department, and she was a secretary for the church for 10 years. I ring the bells in our hand bell choir, she said. I like it. Its fun. Weve had it for years in our church, and they were looking for new ringers. I thought Id try it, and Ive been doing it ever since.

Thank you so much to all who participated in the Johnson Family Benefit at The Pier 290 restaurant in Williams Bay on May 5. It was much larger and more fulfilling then we could have ever imagined, a fitting tribute to our beloved Sally.

CONFERENCE TENNIS: Badgers take second

Peaking at the right time

Badger 2, 3 dubs nab conference titles, team breaks three-way tie

By Mike Ramczyk BURLINGTON Doubles teams have been up for grabs for the Badger tennis team this season. After No. 1 doubles, eight athletes have vied for spots on the teams Nos. 2 and 3 squads. Last weekend, the No. 2 doubles team of Mike Cordes and Connor Schaid playing only their fourth, fth and sixth matches together of the season proved they are here to stay. Cordes and Schaid nabbed rst place at the Southern Lakes Conference tournament, held Friday and Saturday at Waterford and Burlington high schools. Badgers No. 3 doubles team of Josh Bakken and Alex Kulik also won conference. Overall, Badger took second place as a team one year after placing fourth in conference. The local netters entered the meet in a three-way tie for second place in the regular season at 5-2. Elkhorn, who went 7-0 during the regular season, won the SLC meet as well. With 36 total points, it was the Elks rst conference tennis title in 26 years. Badger nished with 30 points. Badger coach Paul Lauterbach, in his rst season back with the boys after coaching the club in the 1990s, couldnt have been happier with the outcome. We exceeded our team goal, Lauterbach said Monday night. Our players had to step up and they did. Everyone contributed, and we played our best tennis of the season. We really had to work for it.

Wedig wins conference

By Mike Ramczyk BRODHEAD The Big Foot track squads had off days at Saturdays Rock Valley Conference meet. The boys, who coach Greg Lueck hoped would nish in the top three of the 12-team meet, placed sixth with 53 points. The Big Foot girls took 12th. A major factor in the outcome was the injury of senior Matt Ripkey, who was hurt during an early relay race. He then was forced to miss the 400 relay and the long jump. Matts injury really set us back, Lueck said. It was serious enough for him to have to come off. Hopefully, the week off will give him some time to rest. Big Foot opens postseason play with regionals Monday, May 20, at Clinton.

Bay senior Sam Storms is 9-2 on the season with a 1.75 ERA.

Bay cruises into playoffs

Storms leads the way
By Mike Ramczyk WILLIAMS BAY The Williams Bay softball team keeps winning, but the WIAA doesnt seem too impressed. Last week, the Lady Bulldogs were given a No. 3 seed in their Division 4 regional, which begins Thursday in Williams Bay. Despite a 12-2 record and a No. 19 ranking in the Division 4 state poll, the Bay was seeded below top seed Barneveld and second-seeded Monticello, two unranked clubs. I am not happy with our seed, Bay coach Jeff Kuespert said. I feel like we are a No. 1 seed and that because of the way the WIAA set our regional, we got shafted on our seed. Our regional consists of six teams from the same conference and us, which doesnt seem real fair. On Monday, the Bulldogs took out their frustrations against Johnson Creek, Division 4s 14th-ranked squad. The Bulldogs held strong to second place in the Trailways South Conference with a doubleheader sweep of the Bluejays, 7-0 and 4-3. We played extremely well, Kuespert said. We came out focused and ready to play. The defense was outstanding, and offensively we sprayed the ball to all parts of the park. In the 7-0 victory, the Bay dominated all facets of game. The girls smashed 12 hits, led by Sam Storms three. Alex Schintgen and Lizzy Smith each added two hits. Smith and Storms had two RBIs apiece.

Second again
By Mike Ramczyk JANESVILLE They may be 40 miles apart, but Big Foot and Edgerton are becoming intense rivals in boys golf. For the second straight year, the Tigers knocked off the Chiefs at the Rock Valley Conference meet to win the overall conference title. Playing at Riverside Golf Course Saturday, Big Foot took second with a score of 331, 13 strokes behind Edgertons 318. Edgertons Andrew Morrison led all players with a 1-under par 71. Big Foots Craig Halma was third overall with a 78. Halma was Big Foots lone golfer in the 70s. Edgerton also beneted from Brooks Johnsons 79, which was good for fth overall. I had hoped to not nish worse than second, and while we had Edgerton in our sights, we just werent able to close strong in our rounds, Big Foot coach Bob Sullivan said. Im pleased with our conference season.

Big Foot forces 3-way tie atop RVC

By Mike Ramczyk WALWORTH With a win Monday night, the Big Foot/Williams Bay boys tennis squad had a chance to join conference leaders Jefferson and East Troy atop the Rock Valley standings. However, the Chief Dogs had to knock off unbeaten East Troy at home. While top players Seb Lauterbach and Adam Kolnik did their part, it was the doubles that came through for Big Foot. The Chief Dogs got victories from both the No. 2 and 3 doubles squad to win, 4-3, and tie for rst place heading into this weeks Rock Valley Conference tournament. I am very pleased with where my team is headed this week as we prepare for the conference tournament, Big Foot coach Jim Karedes said Monday. Were peaking at the right time. The Rock Valley regular season wrapped up with Big Foot, East Troy and Jefferson all having 5-1 records in rst place. Big Foot beat East Troy, which knocked off Jefferson, which beat Big Foot. Karedes said these three will battle it out at Thursdays RVC meet, which will take place at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. We should nish top three in the conference, and were obviously trying for No. 1, Karedes said. More importantly, I would like to see a lot of the boys medal at their respective ights. Edgewood to get things done, though. Its tough, but then again, if it was easy everybody would be doing it. Stiff competition On Friday at the Fort Atkinson quad, Big Foot went 5-9 in matches designed to give the Chief Dogs some additional playing time considering this springs treacherous weather. The same theory applied to Saturdays Racine Prairie Invite. Facing some of the states best players, the records werent great, but the Chief Dogs gained valuable experience. The teams that we saw on Saturday were of elite caliber, Karedes said. While our scores may not express the way we played, being there and watching our athletes compete was impressive. We look forward to taking what we learned this past weekend into both conference tournament and post-season play. In conference duals last week, Big Foot fell to Jefferson, 4-3, but beat Whitewater, 5-2. In the victory against the Whippets, Lauterbach and Kolnik won in straight sets at singles. All three doubles teams won, including DJaelen Evans and Jacob Waro, Huerth and Klesmith and Stilin and Jared Schnupp. Stilin and Schnupp lost the rst set, 3-6, but recovered to win the next two sets, 6-3, 6-3.

ADRIAN GONZALEZ has found his niche at No. 3 doubles. On Monday, Lauterbach and Kolnik won easily at No. 1 and 2 singles, respectively. At No. 2 doubles, the team of Nick Klesmith and Will Huerth knocked off East Troys Joe Zess and Paul DAmico, 6-0, 6-2. At No. 3 doubles, Adrian Hernandez and Neil Stilin beat Brett Harper and John Brehm, 7-5, 6-3. While Lauterbach and Kolnik, both juniors, are the most seasoned Chiefs with their state experience, Karedes has been impressed by his doubles players. Our doubles have grown a lot this season, he said. I look forward to each of our doubles teams to improve and knock off some teams that they lost to early in the season at the conference meet. They are extremely talented, and I believe they are only beginning to believe they are as good as I have been telling them they are. At the conference tournament, which runs Thursday and Friday, Lauterbach will enter as the No. 1 seed at No. 1 singles. Kolnik could be the No. 2 seed at No. 2 singles, Karedes said. Seb needs to hold onto that position, Karedes said. Adam should be able to win conference. Big Foot turns right around with WIAA Division 2 subsectionals Monday, May 20, and sectionals Wednesday, May 22. We hope to make a deep run in the tournament, Karedes said. Well have to compete with East Troy, Monroe and Madison

Big Foot picture perfect
Nobody can stop the soccer girls from Walworth. On Saturday, the Big Foot/Williams Bay club improved to 11-0-1 overall with a hard-fought, 1-0 home win over McFarland. The Lady Chiefs lead the Rock Valley Conference by three games over secondplace Palmyra-Eagle. We struggled a bit, Big Foot coach Annie Isham said. Fatigue was denitely a factor. We had many great opportunities but did not nish one until the 74-minute mark when Schyler Isham scored in the upper right corner. With a young club, Annie Isham didnt foresee this much success. I knew at the beginning of the season that we had some good potential, she said. I did not expect to be undefeated. On May 9 at Whitewater, Big Foot cruised to a 4-0 victory. Maggie Kivlin, Mari Hubanks, Morgan Courier and Schyler Isham each tallied goals. Annie Isham said her team dominated. Big Foot enjoyed another blowout May 7 with a 5-1 win over East Troy. We were really working well offensively, Annie Isham said. Schyler Isham, Rachel Heidenreich, and Annalise Floody added goals. Maggie Kivlin assisted on Hubanks rst goal and Morgan Courier assisted on Floodys score. Natalie Boldger is incredibly solid in the net for us, Annie Isham said. And the duo in the central mideld of Courier and Isham are driving our attack. Big Foot travels to McFarland Thursday. These last two and half weeks of the regular season are always very tough, Annie Isham said. Players are banged up, tired, and this year the make-up games are taxing all the teams.

Badgers still atop SLC

The Badgers avenged an earlier loss to Southern Lakes Conference rival Burlington with a 2-1 triumph May 7 at Badger. After a 10-5 loss to Janesville Craig Monday, Badger is now 11-4 overall and ranked No. 7 in the Division 1 Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association state rankings. In the win over the Demons, senior southpaw Colton Andresen was masterful on the mound, tossing a three-hit shutout with ve strikeouts and only one walk. Andresen improved to 4-1 on the season with a 1.53 ERA. At the plate, Badger only managed ve hits, but small ball lifted the local boys. Jonah Zeinerts sacrice y in the fth proved to be the difference. Zeinert accounted for both Badger RBIs. Peter Krien went 2-for-2 for the Badgers, and Andresen, Derek Denecke and Mitch Jensen added one hit each. Denecke leads the team with a .556 batting average. On Monday, the Badger jumped out to a 4-3 lead against Craig, but the visiting Cougars scored runs in the nal four innings to pull away. On the mound, Donald Schnurer, Eric Skipper, Tom Ritzman and Gunner Losch allowed six earned runs combined. Losch, Skipper, Jensen, Travis Stahulak and Kevin Murray each had hits for Badger. As a team, Badger committed seven errors. Badger hosts SLC rival Wilmot Thursday.


THE GENOA CITY XPLOSION is 42-8 overall.

Xplosion take two

By Rick Koehn Special to the Regional News GENOA CITY The Xplosion recently took care of two of the nations top youth softball teams. What was expected to be a highlycontested affair wasnt even close. The Naperville, Ill., Diamonds threw their ace pitcher in hopes of stifling the Xplosion offense. However, she couldnt make it out of the first inning as the Xplosion fired on all cylinders with 15 runs on 14 hits in a 20-3 thrashing. The Xplosion got six extra-base hits from OBrien, Kira Mickelson, Kalissa Koehn and Riley Regnier. Koehn silenced the Diamond offense from the mound, allowing only three hits over five innings with five strikeouts. The victory was only an appetizer for the main course, a rematch between last years NSA state champion Genoa City Xplosion and the USSSA No. 2-ranked team in the nation, Wasco, Ill., Diamonds. The teams lived up to the hype. Hailey Bakers seventh-inning single with two outs plated Koehn and gave the XPlosion a dramatic, 5-4 victory. Genoa City is now 42-8 overall. Genoa Citys Maddie Schillinger walked to start the game and advanced to third on a single to center by Koehn. Mickelson followed with a single to center scoring Schillinger. The Xplosion sent another run across in the second when Alanna Malchin singled to center, scoring Kira Allen. Wasco answered with two in the fourth to take a 3-2 lead. In the fifth, Schillinger walked and stole second. Then, Koehn scored Schillinger with an RBI single. With Koehn in scoring position, OBrien singled to center, giving the Xplosion a 4-3 lead. Wasco tied the game in the top of the seventh with a two-out single to center, setting the table for the dramatic finish. In the bottom of the seventh, Koehn singled. With one out and a hit-and-run on, Koehn moved into scoring position on the OBriens fielders choice groundout. With two outs and two strikes, Baker smashed a 1-2 curve ball down the rightfield line for the game winner. With some offseason changes to improve the coaching staff and the addition of two quality hitters to the lineup, the Xplosion will continue to play up in competition. At the 13U age division, the Xplosion boasts a 7-1 record against 16U teams. Genoa City boasts a 31-7 record against 14U teams.

Chiefs break out of slump with sweep

By Mike Ramczyk WALWORTH Things were going downhill fast for the Big Foot baseball team. Losers of six straight, the Chiefs found themselves at 8-7 after starting the season 8-1. That all changed Saturday. Big Foot broke out of its slump in a big way, sweeping Rock Valley South rival Brodhead, 13-1, and 9-7. Ace pitcher Austin Hoey got the win in the 13-1 decision for the Chiefs. He allowed one earned run, two hits, ve walks and struck out 10 over ve innings. The Chiefs busted out the bats as well, exploding for 12 hits including home runs from Carter Hehr and Alex Landers. Landers led the way with a 3-for-3 performance and three RBIs. Hehr and Nate Freytag each collected two hits. It was great to nally get run support for our pitching staff, Big Foot coach Steve Bochat said. I felt that this game earlier in the season where it was originally placed could have really helped us. I hope it gets us going now. The key was Hoeys ability to control game one and a number of hitters in our lineup. Zak Greco, Tim Long, Brett Morris, Billy Landers and Marshall Strenger all had one hit. In the second game, a back-and-forth battle saw Big Foot fall into a 4-1 hole in the second. The Chiefs answered with four runs in the third, but Brodhead tied the game at 55 in the fourth. In the seventh, Big Foot put up another four spot, led by an RBI triple from Alex Landers. Brodhead scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but it wasnt enough.


BILLY LANDERS took the loss Monday. On the hill, Brandon Hausner, Morris and Billy Landers combined to give up only four earned runs. Landers shut the door in the seventh, earning the win. That was key in the seventh, Bochat said. We havent had a strong No. 2 pitcher all season, and we have been piecing games together and it worked Saturday. Big Foot has ve regular season games left, including one more RVC doubleheader against Clinton. At 10-8 overall, Bochat is hoping the Chiefs can nish strong. We have had some great nishes in the past two seasons, and I hope to continue that this week, he said. We play every night except Wednesday so it should be exciting. We have a great chance to go far


BRETT MORRIS prepares to re a pitch Monday. in regionals again. Big Foot returns home to battle Clinton Thursday. Edgerton 4, Big Foot 1 The Chiefs win streak was short-lived thanks to a strong pitching performance Monday night in Walworth. Edgerton left-hander Lucas Gregory was stellar, tossing seven innings and striking out eight while surrendering only three hits. The Tigers took a 4-0 lead after three innings and cruised the rest of the way. Big Foots only run came in the bottom of the fourth. Brian Wolski, Morris and Freytag collected the only hits for the Chiefs. Billy Landers started and allowed four earned runs in ve innings. Morris relieved him and red two hitless innings.

Lady Badgers fall


Passing the baton

FRANKIE BOBULA hustles to rst in a recent game. The Badger softball team is 2-13 overall this season after a 15-5 loss to Oconomowoc Saturday. Bobula is hitting .348 this season. Catcher Jamie Mikrut leads the team with a .448 average.


Softball/Bulldogs open playoffs

Emmalyn Meyers, Claudia Wautlet, Taylor Scott, Haley Shea and Jamie Sitter all tallied one hit. For the season, the Bay is hitting .361. Storms paces the girls with a .609 clip. On the mound, Storms struck out 10 and scattered four hits in seven innings. She only gave up one walk. Storms improved to 9-2 on the season and lowered her earned-run average to 1.75. She has struck out 92 batters in 68 innings. The Bay jumped out to a 4-0 lead and held on in the 4-3 victory. Creek scored two runs in the sixth and one in the seventh but couldnt catch up. The Bay only mustered four hits but capitalized off four Johnson Creek errors. Scott belted a triple and nished with two RBIs. Storms, Meyers and Sitter also had hits. Storms went the distance again on the mound, allowing three earned runs and scattering six hits while striking out seven. The Bay hosts sixthseeded Pecatonica Thursday in a playoff opener. The rst pitch is slated for 5 p.m. In the playoffs we can go as far as our defense will take us, Kuespert said. We are going to hit, score, run, and pitch. Our defense will be key in our run. Horicon 4, Williams Bay 2 The Bulldogs suffered a rare loss at home May 10. All of the games runs came in the rst inning. In the top of the frame, the Bay committed two errors with two outs, which set up a three-run home run by Cheyenne Czerwinski. The Bay came back with two runs in the bottom of the rst. Storms and Shea each tallied RBIs. It was a pitchers duel the rest of the way, with both pitchers settling down and mowing down batter after batter. The Bay only totaled ve hits, and Horicon nished with four hits. It was a strong performance against Division 3s third-ranked team. I was very pleased with the teams performance, Kuespert said. The rst inning was not good but overall the team played very well. To hold the No. 3-ranked team in the state to four unearned runs, all coming in the rst, is a positive that needs to be taken away from that game.

Lauterbach gave credit to Elkhorn as well. He said Badger players beat Elkhorn last weekend in four of ve matches. Badger also beat Waterford in two matches, so overall the local boys exacted revenge from the regular season in six matches, according to Lauterbach. Badger found its strength in doubles last weekend. The No. 1 doubles team of Max Gilbertson and Riley Nocek placed second, falling 6-2, 6-2 in the championship match against Elkhorn. Cordes and Schaid made quick work of Waterford and Westosha Central before facing Elkhorn in the nals. The duo wasnt seeded in the top four teams in the tournament and only had a 2-1 record as a team. In the nal, Elkhorn won the rst set, 7-5, but Badger stormed back to win, 63, in both the second and third sets. I told the boys that they have to believe they can win, Lauterbach said. They really turned it up in the second and third sets. We started playing like the favorite. At No. 3 doubles, Bakken, a freshman, and Kulik, a sophomore, played well beyond their years. The No. 4 seed with a 3-2 record entering the meet, the young tandem easily knocked off Westosha Central and Burlington. In the nal against Elkhorn, they fell into a 5-2 hole in the rst set. After a pep talk from Lauterbach, Bakken and Kulik went on a 5-0 run to win the rst set, 7-5. They nished off the Elks, 6-2, in the second set. They played with condence, Lauterbach said. At No. 3 singles, Dan Weiner took fourth place. Also, Badger had two consolation champions, or fth-place nishers, Liam Bailey at No. 1 singles and Eric Heinz at No. 4 singles. Badger will enjoy a week off before postseason play begins with subsectionals Monday, May 20. Lauterbach hopes several players can advance to sectionals, which will be held at Badger High School Wednesday, May 22. He said Gilbertson and Nocek (16-6) could have the best shot of advancing in the postseason. It will be very difcult to get someone to state, he said. We have continued to improve throughout the season. In the playoffs, you either produce or you dont. Im hoping we can turn some heads. I think we will have a nice team presence at sectionals.


MATT RIPKEY, far right, suffered an injury at conference. He may be back for regionals May 20. have an opportunity to advance to sectionals. However, the regional is loaded. Opponents East Troy, Jefferson and Whitewater, all Rock Valley North teams, finished above Big Foot in the conference meet standings. We have to switch from team mode to individual mode, he said. The two-mile relay teams for both the boys and girls should do well. I could see Wedig and Dixon having a shot at winning regionals. Our regional is as difficult as it gets. Walworth County Invite At the Walworth County Invite May 7 at Elkhorn High School, the Big Foot boys took third out of six teams with 121 points. The Badger boys and East Troy girls were team winners. Dixon won the 100 meter dash with an 11.4, edging out Badgers Mike Mann (11.5). Wedig nabbed first in the 110 hurdles with a time of 16.10. Big Foots other winner was Dan Pearce, who won the long jump with a leap of 39-5. The Big Foot girls took fourth with 47 points. Brooks was second in the 3,200 run with a 12:40.00, and the 3,200 relay team of Edinger, Gillingham, Kazey-Gary and Carlie ODonnell was third with a time of 11:21.00.

On the front porch with Steinbeck

This story started a few springs ago, when I was sitting on a friends front porch. I was reading John Steinbecks Travels with Charley the authors nonction travelogue about his trip across America. Steinbeck was a cozy curmudgeon when he wrote the book, seemingly bruised but unbowed. I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness, he wrote. Ive lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment. The observations in Travels were folksy and wise. He wrote about the simple pleasures of eating and sleeping outdoors, visiting unpretentious diners and meeting people who never read The Grapes of Wrath or East of Eden. He wrote about how America was changing, becoming too homogenous, and losing its way. Most of all, he wrote about people the substance, the root of all his writing. She wasnt happy, but then she wasnt unhappy. She wasnt anything. But I dont believe anyone is a nothing. There has to be something inside, if only to keep the skin from collapsing. This vacant eye, listless hand, this damask cheek dusted like a doughnut with plastic powder, had to have a memory or a dream. Steinbeck in a nutshell: ... I dont believe anyone is a nothing. When I was reading the book on my friends front porch that spring, I was about the same age as Steinbeck was when he rigged up his camper, grabbed his dog, Charley, and started cross country to rediscover America. I was also at a crossroads searching for a road map. In fact the book had a map. It was sketched in a primitive style, as though drawn by a child the type of map that speaks to boys in their 60s who are looking to hitch a ride. I contemplated getting in my SUV and heading west to nd something new about myself. For years after, when I sat on that front porch, I couldnt help but think of that spring when Travels was on my mind. Then a few years ago, that fond memory was colored by a harsh reality. A writer tried to retrace Steinbecks travels only to discover the author couldnt have been at places he said he was at, couldnt have had the conversations he said he had because the people couldnt have been where he said they were. In other words, at least some of this non-ction travelogue was made up. Steinbecks last ction works didnt get favorable reviews, so maybe he thought hed have better luck by claiming he was writing a true account. Or, maybe, he started off with good intentions and the novelist in him took over. His defenders point out that he was also sick and depressed, and saw the trip as a way to recapture his youth, rediscover grace usually a fruitless pursuit. A couple years after Travels, Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for his lifetime achievements. At the time, a reporter asked him if he deserved it and Steinbeck replied, Frankly, no.

I never took that road trip. But I found my way anyway on that porch and around the corner. Nearby, where most truths abide.

Postmaster has suggestions

Are you or someone you know planning a special event or wedding? Did you know USPS has a variety of postage for weddings, family gatherings and other special events? For your special invitations this year we have Wedding Roses which shows two elegant white roses, Sealed with Love stamp which shows an envelope that shows a heart impressed into a wax seal, we have the Neon Celebrate stamp which is like reworks in the night sky and the Where Dreams Blossom stamp which shows a stylized drawing of a oral bouquet. We still can order in a supply of the Love Ribbons stamps which spells out love with a ribbon. All of these stamps are forever stamps good for the rst ounce. It is always a wise idea to bring the invitation you have chosen to use to your local post ofce so they can weigh it and let you know what you will need for postage. Some invitations are heavier than the one ounce and would therefore need additional postage. If this is the case USPS has two choices of 66-cent stamps that are suitable for weddings. Some invitations are square in shape and these also require additional postage. If letter-sized they need a nonmachinable surcharge and if large envelope-sized may need considerable more postage than a letter. This will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of mailing off invitations postage due to your guests. Next time you are planning a special event, make your local post ofce your rst stop. Valerie Heth is the Pell Lake Postmaster.

Battered daughter needs help

Dear W.C.,
My daughter is in desperate need of your help. Her husband was just sentenced to 10 years in prison for beating a man nearly to death at a bar. His going to prison was the best thing that could have happened to my daughter. Maybe now she can move on with her life and my grandchildren can grow up without his terrible anger. I know he was abusing my daughter and keeping her in his control for years. I was not allowed to see her or my two grandchildren for the last two years as he became more and more controlling. I tried to sneak to see her and was threatened by her husband that he would beat the grandchildren if I tried to see them again. Now my daughter has come to me for help. I am barely getting by and living in a subsidized studio apartment. Her husband always had control of all their nances, making her work two jobs as a waitress, counting all her tip money. My daughter said he took all the money she had for rent and food out of their account. He sold their car for cash before going into prison. She does not know where he put the money. She is stranded unable to pay her rent and does not have a car to get to work. She has been riding a bike at all hours, in all weather, for miles in the dark after work. It breaks my heart that she has been living this harsh life and raising my grandchildren in this harsh life for so long. Please help her.

Dear Readers,
We can all ask the question why this woman did not leave her husband years ago. I have seen so many women take years of abuse living in fear. I do my best to stop the abuse when I see it. This mother did not know how to help her daughter or grandchildren. I do not know why she did not go to the authorities. Many times people do go to the authorities, but without proof of the abuse it is hard to accuse someone of the crime. And then the abuse gets even worse. That is what this mother was afraid of. Our mission was to help this woman and her children move on from the abuse and regain their independent lives. When I met the woman at her mothers apartment I saw a woman that looked tired and worn from the stress of her life. When I spoke to her she would not look me in the eye, instead staring at the oor. We spoke for a few minutes about the children and her husbands prison sentence. I asked her if she was ready to move on from her previous lifestyle, if not for herself for her children. With this she looked up and I nally saw a light of her spirit inside her. She said, That man will never come near me or my children again. That was the ghting spirit I wanted to see, not the beaten down depressed person I had seen just a minute ago. I told her she needed to use that drive to move on with her life. I asked about her income from her two waitressing jobs. She earned enough money to care for herself and two children. The lease on the apartment they were renting was nearly up and she hoped to nd something more reasonable, along with getting rid of the bad memories of her past life in those rooms.

Thinking about aging

It is always in season for old men to learn. Aeschylus To celebrate the anniversary of my four score and six years, I decided to investigate what others have said or written about the business of age and aging. I hadnt given much thought to this ever-deepening life process until certain physical inrmities cascaded simultaneously. A knee, lower back, an ornery circumstance of aging called plantar fasciitis (a foot problem that affects balance among other things) these and myriad other assorted aches and pains keep life interesting.

Libertarians not the answer

To the Editor:
Is Libertarianism the next big thing? Politicians, such as Rand Paul, would have us believe so. They protest taxes and gun control. The Libertarians claim the government is depriving us of our constitutionally guaranteed liberties. It is true that the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees our right to bear arms, but only if we serve in the militia (National Guard). The 16th Amendment gives the government the right to tax our income and at a higher rate for the rich than for the rest of us. We owe something to our countrymen who make our lives safer, more comfortable and more enjoyable. If we can not meet that obligation, then it is time to leave society and become hermits. Just keep in mind what Thomas Hobbes, the famous Scottish philosopher, said, Without a government, life would be nasty, brutish and short. Marvin Hersko Lake Geneva

Against law school decision on class

To the Editor:
This month we celebrate National Crime Victims Rights Week a week when we turn our awareness toward crime victims and the rights they deserve. This years theme is New Challenges, New Solutions. In the wake of the tragedy that befell the city of Boston, this theme is particularly signicant. I, like many others, watched in horror as the events surrounding the Boston Marathon unfolded. After the bombs exploded, the rst responders performed heroically, getting help to victims almost instantaneously. There is little doubt that this rapid response saved many, many lives. As the criminal investigation in Boston continues, and the prosecution commences, it is time for the second and third responders those who work in the criminal justice system to do their part. The criminal justice professionals will assist the victims in countless ways. They rst must identify all of those affected. Then, they will provide notice of court hearings, assist with compensation claims, explain the complicated criminal justice process and ensure that the victims voices are heard. We know that rst responders, as part of their formal training, learn how to help victims. We nd comfort in the fact that when they complete their education, they will know how to apply a tourniquet, perform CPR and triage in the face of a mass tragedy. Unfortunately, the same does not hold true for the second and third responders. The truth is that many criminal justice professionals graduate from school without ever learning about victims and their rights. For the past few years, a former colleague and I have taught a course at the University of Wisconsin Law School called Victims in the Criminal Justice System. We developed this course because we wanted to give law students the chance to develop a rm understanding of the issues surrounding crime victims, which are often complex and nuanced, and are best addressed initially in the classroom rather than in a real-world setting. This class is one of a handful of courses in the country that focuses on victims. We trace the journey of victims from the point they are victimized through the entire legal process from investigation and charging to post-sentencing. We have speakers from all different disciplines, including prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, survivors, victim advocates, victim/witness specialists, law enforcement and the media. The feedback we receive from the students is overwhelmingly positive with many students commenting that ours was the best class they took while in law school. Unfortunately, the University of Wisconsin Law School has chosen to drop this class for the 2013-14 academic year. We have been told that it will only be offered every other year due to budgetary constraints even though we would teach it for free. The decision to cut this class for next year will have a detrimental impact on the course because it will stymie the momentum in enrollment we have gained from past years. In addition, the class is mostly comprised of third-year law students, those in their nal year. Offering it every other year will mean, realistically, that half the student body will lose the opportunity to take the course. More than 30 individuals, including the Dane County Sheriff, Dane County District Attorney, circuit and appellate court judges, defense attorneys, survivors of crime and victim advocates have contacted the Law School dean asking that this course be reinstated on an annual basis. Former students have done the same. The new challenges sparked by the realities of the world in which we live today demand new solutions, such as teaching about crime victims during the formal education process. After all, a law school that instructs students about criminal law without teaching them about crime victims is like a medical school teaching about diseases and their causes without focusing on patient care. The University of Wisconsin Law School is a public institution funded with taxpayer dollars. The publics voice should matter. I invite you to contact University of Wisconsin Law School Dean Margaret Raymond at and ask her to reconsider her decision. Jill J. Karofsky Ofce of Crime Victim Services at the Wisconsin Department of Justice Executive Director UW Law School Adjunct Professor

Poppy not for sale

To the Editor:
The American Legion Auxiliary adopted the poppy as its memorial ower in 1921, and in 1924 instituted the national poppy program to protect the memorial poppy from becoming commercialized and ensuring every auxiliary poppy is made by a disabled or hospitalized veteran. Each year American Legion Auxiliary members, American Legion veterans and Sons of the Legion members distribute more than 30 million red crepe paper poppies in exchange for contributions to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans. All of the donations received by the auxiliary volunteers for poppies and other contributions to the poppy fund are used exclusively to assist and support veterans and their families. In addition, poppy making provides veterans with rehabilitation activity and a small personal income. The physical and mental activity of poppy making provides therapeutic benets for these veterans. The auxiliary provides all the material for poppy making free of charge. Then the auxiliary buys the poppies back and distributes them. The auxiliary, legion and sons take donations for the poppies and 100 percent goes back to the veterans. When you see us standing on corners and in front of stores, please make a donation for the poppy reminds us of the sacrices our sons and daughters have made for our freedom. Please wear the poppy. May God be with you all. Barb Braden Lake Geneva Poppy Chairman P.S. We dont sell, we take donations.

Whats wrong with cooker concept?

To the Editor:
I write this letter to express my utter dismay at the ruling of the Plan Commission that the cooker in front of the new Wilsons Meat Market on Center Street is not aesthetically pleasing enough to be in downtown Lake Geneva! Do we want the downtown to look like a theme park? The cooker is eye catching, unique and looks like what its function is. Dont we want Lake Geneva to be a fun place to come, with lots of unusual attractions? Our city is engaging because each building is different and unique. Sameness and conformity are boring. Sometimes our commissions show that they are too full of themselves by imposing their own opinions on private merchants who might be a little too out of the box for them. Save the cooker! Rick Steinberg Lake Geneva

Up to about a year ago I was of the same mind as Bernard Baruch: To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am. The American statesman and adviser to U.S. presidents lived to be 95. Now I spend more time thinking about aging, but Ill let others have their say. The jazz pianist Eubie Blake at age 100 proclaimed, If Id known I was gonna live this long, Id have taken better care of myself. If 86 is any kind of a milestone, Id say health and attitude are the major ingredients. One thing for sure, the middle 80s can be lonely, the kind that physician S. Weir Mitchell described: The arctic loneliness of age. I am truly a survivor: my wife passed on over two years ago, brother and sister are gone, rst cousins in my fathers family (14) are down to three, and the other two live far away and are not very good communicators. No rst cousins survive in Mothers family. It is children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who keep it all going, and most of them are far away. Maybe Ogden Nash anticipated the whole thing: Senescence begins/And middle age ends,/ The day your descendants/Outnumber your friends. And playwright Tom Stoppard would add: Age is a high price to pay for maturity. Perspective is clearly the advantage of age. The problem is, no one listens. I can look back and forward and see seven generations, and I lived through a lot of history. My grandparents were of the missionary generation. I can recall seeing my maternal grandfather in a hospital bed just before his death. That is the sum total of grandparent remembrance. My parents were part of the lost generation. My father was a veteran of World War I. Artillery, France, 1918. I am at the leading edge of the silent generation. My children are boomers. The next generation we cant seem to nd a name for 13ers, reactives, whatever. These are my grandchildren. Then come the millennials, the next civic generation, which means they will probably save us Americans from something, much as the Depression-World War II generation did. (No member of my family line were of that generation because my father was 40 years older than I.). Some of my grandchildren are of this generation, the millennials. And four great-grandchildren who will be of the next generation, which apparently has not been named. The events of the last 86 years are astounding. If there is a wisdom in all this, it probably can be classied as accidental or incidental. But Jonathan Swift, 18th century satirist, stated better what I would say next: No wise man ever wished to be younger. There are ironies in aging. To wit: If you live long enough the venerability factor creeps in; you get accused of things you never did and praised for virtues you never had. (I.F. Stone) They tell you that youll lose your mind when you grow older. What they dont tell you is that you wont miss it very much. (Malcolm Cowley) Is it not strange that desire should so many years outlive performance: (Shakespeare) Attitude can be as important as health. The age-old relating of elderhood with the season of autumn can still be instructive. How beautifully the leaves grow old. How full of light and colour are their last days. (John Burrows) And about that Shakespeare line: Its never too late to have a ing/For autumn is just as nice as spring/And its never to late to fall in love. Theres probably irony in the fact that the author of that thought is Sandy Wilson (who could be male or female). My research produced nothing to prove either way. Ive learned something from these folks, and Ill settle for what 17th century French classical writer Francois La Rochefoucauld concluded, Few people know how to be old. Johnson is a former Badger High School teacher.

Time Is Now/Husband threatened wife, landlord

One of the women she worked with wanted her to share a house with her and share child care duties. This would be a big help as they could work different shifts and care for each others children. The reduction in rent and childcare costs would make her budget work. What the mother needed for immediate help was her overdue utilities. We also helped with food and toiletries. The mother offered her car to her daughter to use to get to work until we could have a donated vehicle serviced and ready for her. I spoke with the landlord and was able to receive the security deposit back even though I asked to get her out of the lease two months early. The landlord was very understanding and actually said he was glad she was moving on as he had often felt sorry for her. He had often seen abuse but was afraid to call the police. The landlord told me, Her violent husband told me if I called the police he would break both my legs. At my visit I asked some questions I would not have asked in front of the children. I asked if she planned to stay married. I could see these questions hurt, but I had to voice my opinion about the abuse I felt she had sustained over the years. She began to cry and told me some things she said she hadnt shared with anyone. How her husband had repeatedly threatened to kill her and the children if she called the police. She told me she was ending her marriage. After that conversation she wiped her tears and shared how the move had changed all their lives. Her roommate had two children as well and they all were getting along great. The childcare arrangement was ideal. The mother was enthusiastic with her praise of the car we provided. She said it was the rst car she had called her own in years. While we often do not see abuse in our communities, it is going on around us. Often people say they had no idea that this was going on and are shocked when they hear of it. Other times people are aware of it but do not know what to do. The effects on the women and children are devastating. Whatever the reason may be for people to continue to live in these conditions, we at The Time Is Now to Help are there to help. Thank you for your caring and sharing. Together we do good works, as we continue to remove the pains of poverty for those in desperate need. Together we restore hope and faith in the goodness of creation.

Halverson/ On the porch with Steinbeck

I took the quote as an example of candor and humility, but maybe there was also a tinge of guilt. Or maybe he revealed himself in Travels: I am happy to report that in the war between reality and romance, reality is not the stronger. In Steinbecks Nobel acceptance speech, he said: The writer is delegated to declare and to celebrate mans proven capacity for greatness of heart and spirit for gallantry in defeat, for courage, compassion and love. Everyone is searching for certainty these days and most are stretching the truth to prove their version of it. Id hope for better from Steinbeck, who died in 1968, unable to defend himself against the charges leveled decades later. But as another porch sitting season haltingly arrives, Ive chosen to forgive Steinbeck. Ill accept his stretching of the facts in the service of a truth that involves so much humanity. Halverson is editor and general manager of the Regional News.

RHUBARB TORTE A sure sign of spring is the appearance of rhubarb plants in the garden or showing up at early farmers markets. In some instances, it is purchased from the produce counter, having grown in a warmer climate. In any event, these recipes use the pinkish-red stalks in desserts and preserves. Rhubarb Torte has a crumble crust patted into the pan and baked before the lling, a mixture of rhubarb, egg yolks, milk, sugar and our, is poured over it. The whole thing bakes again. Cool before serving or serve it slightly warm, with whipped topping or ice cream, if desired. Using a combination of fruits, Apple Rhubarb Crisp calls for a graham cracker crumb mixture in the pan under the fruit and as topping. The lling uses rhubarb stalks that bake in foil for a few minutes before combining with sliced apples. The dessert is nished after 30 minutes in the oven. Rhubarb and Ginger Jam uses preserved ginger and its syrup, lemon juice and rind with the cut up rhubarb and sugar. After it cooks about 20 minutes, the ginger pieces are stirred in and the jam is put into jars. The twopiece lids seal as the mixture cools. Popular as a pie lling, strawberries and rhubarb also combine to make Strawberry-Rhubarb Refrigerator Jam. Crushed pineapple and avored gelatin mix, the strawberry source, are the other ingredients. The bright pink mixture is stored in the refrigerator for use later in the season. 1 cup flour 1/2 cup margarine 2 tablespoons sugar Pinch of salt 1 1/4 cups sugar 3 beaten egg yolks 1/3 cup milk 2 1/2 cups finely chopped rhubarb 2 tablespoons flour Heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix first four ingredients well and press mixture onto bottom of an 8-by-8-inch baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Combine remaining ingredients, mixing well, and spread over baked crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes. Cool. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. RHUBARB AND GINGER JAM 4 pounds rhubarb 6 cups sugar 3 to 4 lemons 2 ounces preserved ginger, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons syrup from ginger Cut rhubarb into small pieces. Put in layers in large glass or plastic container alternately with sugar. Let stand until the next day. Put rhubarb and sugar mixture and all the juice into a heavy saucepan. Peel off zest of lemons, cut into thin strips and add to fruit. Stir in ginger syrup and bring mixture slowly to a boil. Stir frequently until sugar has dissolved; boil rapidly for 15 to 20 minutes, until it thickens a little. Skim foam from the surface. Stir in sliced ginger. Spoon into warm jars; top with sterilized lids that are hot. Put rings on jars, turning just until tight. Set on folded towel as they cool overnight. Store in cool dark area.

APPLE RHUBARB CRISP 1/2 cup melted butter 1 cup graham cracker crumbs 1/4 cup brown sugar 6 rhubarb stalks 2 peeled thinly-sliced McIntosh apples 1 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup raisins 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine melted butter, crumbs and 1/4 cup brown sugar; divide. Trim rhubarb stalks; wrap in aluminum foil and bake five minutes at 350 degrees. Cool and cut into 1-inch chunks. Combine with apples. Mix remaining brown sugar, currants, vanilla and nutmeg; stir into fruit mixture. Spread half of crumb mixture over bottom of 1-quart casserole. Add fruit mixture; top with remaining crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool slightly. Makes six servings. STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB REFRIGERATOR JAM 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple 4 cups rhubarb, sliced into 1/4-inch pieces 4 cups sugar 1 3-ounce package strawberry gelatin mix Place pineapple with its juice, rhubarb and sugar in sauce pan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until well blended. Add the gelatin mix and stir and cook until it is dissolved. Pour into pint jars, cool. Cover and keep refrigerated. Makes three pints.

ources differ on the mileage of the Geneva Lake shore path. But everyone agrees that the walk is worth it. The path, which is open to the public, circles the entire lake and affords hikers the chance to experience panoramic views, both of Geneva Lake and the grand estates that dot its shoreline. From its origins as a trail connecting Native American settlements to its present-day usage as a public hiking attraction, the shore path has timeless appeal. At over 21 miles, the length can seem intimidating, but there are a number of ways to break the walk up into smaller segments. Path access is available from downtown Lake Geneva to the south shore near the intersection of Campbell St. and Wrigley Dr. and to the north shore through Library Park. Shore path conditions range from easy, level sidewalks to steeper, rougher terrain. Estimated walking time for the entire circuit is between eight and nine hours, depending on pace and weather conditions. Points of interest include Stone Manor, the largest lakeshore home; the Wrigley estate, a home built in the style of Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Waters; and the historic Lake Geneva Yacht Club.

Lake Geneva
You can take in the sights on foot or on the water; either way, the shoreline of Geneva Bay affords breathtaking views of some of the lakes most historicand preservedestates. Many of the original mansions have been razed, but others retain their original dignity. Two homes dominate the opposite sides of Geneva Bay: Stone Manor, originally Younglands, and Wadsworth Hall, originally The Stenning. Dozens of other Geneva Bay properties draw the eye, but these two provide the most vivid images of a bygone era. The Italian marble palace is best known as Stone Manor, but the structure was originally named Younglands. Otto Young built it on the Moorings estate site as the 19th century turned to the 20th as a dream home for his wife. The Manor remains the largest home on the lakeshore. It has a storied legacy: a private residence, an Episcopal Church school for girls, a rooming house and a sheriffs auction property. It nally was converted to hold more than a half-dozen residential condominiums. Follow the southern segment of the lakeshore path to reach Stone Manor, which is only a few minutes walk from downtown. Past Stone Manor, Geneva Bay properties continue to just beyond the Lake Geneva Country Club. Head west on the path from the library and Riviera to get a look at Wadsworth Hall, which is located about 2 1/2 miles from town. Wadsworth Hall has also been named the Stenning and the Driehaus Estate/ Glanworth Gardens. The Roman Neoclassic structure was built in the early 1900s and the current owner, Richard Driehaus, has renovated both the mansion and its grounds and revived the estates social calendar with extravagant parties and charitable fundraisers.

he rich history of the shore path and the residences, parks, camps and burial mounds along it has been well chronicled. Selfguided tour pamphlets and books abound. Its very gratifying to walk and match the booklets description to the mansion in front of you, or say to yourself, The Elgin Club is next, and have it conrmed by a sign a few steps later. Its even more gratifying to have walked the path enough times to be able to predict what mansion lies around the bend, and remember bits of its history. With a pedometer, a bag packed with a camera, guidebook, pen and paper and you can set out on your own journey around the lake. The following is an excerpt from Resorter editor Jessica Franzenes

Step 1: The Geneva Lake Association sign: a marker on every public entrance to the lake shore path. Step 89: Hard to chronicle a journey when youve forgotten a pen. I had to park all the way back at Maxwell and Dodge streets, and I really dont want to go back to the car. Fortunately, its Labor Day weekend there are lots of lakeshore families using their properties for the last party of the season. I ask a group if I can borrow a pen. Bob Aspinall hunts one down and reminds me to do a write-up on the antique boat show on the weekend of Sept. 25 to 27 at the Abbey Resort. Before I leave, Im offered: 1) a beer; 2) my choice of two pens; and 3) ham, if I come back later when its ready. Step 501: The original mansion at Maple Lawn (right) was built in 1871 and torn down a few years ago. The Sturges family, Chicago, owned the estate and made good use of the expansive lawns that now sweep up to the new residence, with parties and games. (photo from Lake Geneva in Vintage Postcards.) Steps 5681250: These are the grounds of former estates: Fairelds, Linden Lodge (now the Geneva Manor subdivision) and Rehoboth. The houses now range from Victorian to Prairie Style and are pretty close together. 1250-1500: Covenant Harbor Bible Camp. Originally the estate Snug Harbor (owned by the George Sturges family), this property gives you a good feel for

ends. Ive always noticed a lot of people turning around at this point, probably because an expanse of lawn lies ahead, with no clear path. Somewhere around here there was an estate called Butternuts. Id never heard of it before today and would have denied its existence if asked.* 1870: Geneva Bay Association. Many of the old estates have been parceled off, so that miles of shoreline property are taken up by associations, clubs or subdivisions. 2064: The more ower species I know, the older I feel. Here, weve got some hydrangeas, hostas, coneowers and black-eyed susans, which makes me almost 40. On this path you stop to admire both natural and man-made beauty. Do the estates carefully cultivated owerbeds fall into the former or latter category?

2180: This stretch is the rst remotely rigorous part of the walk. The path becomes more rustic and hilly. I cant believe I used to bike this. (Biking is no longer allowed on the path. It may never have been, come to think of it.) 2583: A good view of the lake from this little bluff. Im standing on a bowling-ball sized rock thats embedded in the middle of the dirt path. Walkers have to either step over it or on it, because the path is only about a foot wide at this point. So, ever since this rock emerged from the soil, every person who has walked this path has noted it and made a decision: step over this rock, or on it? Its not quite Blarney Stone- or Ayers Rock-level fame, but still a respectable showing, especially in a state where icebergs deposited billions of boulders. 2604: Northwoodside This house was built in 1876 by Henry Strong and to be frank, Ive always thought it was Green Gables.* Upon reection, it appears that I was wrong about the homes name due to being wrong about what a gable is (see illustration at left). Northwoodside was one of the many lakeshore properties purchased by the Wrigley family from 1911 to today. 2890: The stairway with the stag statues (one facing the lake, one the home) leads to Hillcroft. The property was used for hunting in the 1800s. A man is out on the lawn and I think about asking him why the stags face different ways, but I dont want to be nosy. 2965: This is Green Gables. (You can see why I was confused. The original, gabled mansion was torn down in 1955 and replaced with the current residence.) The estate, previously known as Blyth Bonnie, was built in the late 1800s by J.M. Horton. William Wrigley Jr. purchased the property in 1911, after interim owners had renamed it and renovated the home. 3215: A great blue heron. 3360: The Green Gables boathouse. This is one of the original Green Gables outbuildings. 3427: Lakewood is the white stucco home between the Green Gables boathouse and Deadwood (see step 3481). Built in 1892, the home was originally named Waldeck. 3481: The structure at Deadwood is a boathouse (and now a residence, too), rst built to accommodate the owners and his neighbors vessels. 3579: Every time I walk here I hear an intermittent, high-frequency sound. It must be from something electrical like lighting or an alarm system. I cant pinpoint its source. If anyone has heard it and/or knows what it is, give me a call. 3600-3750: Wychwood. The standing home is what remains of the original 1901 Tudor manor, which rose three stories, the better to overlook the little cove and island that make this my favorite property on the lake. The Wrigleys have owned Wychwood since 1957. 3750: Met the Whiting and Roe families from Elgin, Ill. They were taking the Harrisons, from Liverpool, England, for a walk along the shore. Theyd gone from Lake Geneva to Williams Bay and were heading back when I stopped them for a picture.

3860: Villa Hortensia. It was built in 1906 for Edward Swift, who named it for his wife Hortense. This place has its own microclimate; it seems to me the path is always about 10 degrees hotter here than before or after it. Maybe its power of suggestion due to the Italian renaissance architecture, red tile roof and the villa in the name. This is a traditional turning-around point for me, mostly because the heat makes me think about the long walk back to Library Park, past stuff Ive already looked at. This time around, I keep going, with a borrowed pen, my $5 pedometer and the assurance that my dad will give me a ride back to my car when I get to my destination.

A new outdoor laser tag eld opens in Lake Geneva

Southeastern Wisconsins premier laser tag provider, CMP Tactical Lazer Tag is opening its massive outdoor eld for the rst full summer season in Lake Geneva on May 4, 2013. The eld will be located at 2567 State Rd 120 in Lake Geneva behind Showboat of Lyons theater. This location will be open from 2pm until 8pm on Fridays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sundays, and any other day for private reservations. Play time is broken down into two hour sessions, and the cost is $30 per person. CMP Tactical Lazer Tag is a new evolution in laser tag featuring high tech, realistic simulated weapons, and objective based game play. The Milwaukee arena, which features multiple huge multi-level buildings, has been open and serving laser tag enthusiasts for over three years. Last year, CMP took its laser tag knowledge outdoor when it opened in Lake Geneva later in the summer season. The new eld is approximately twenty times bigger than their indoor arena. The open landscape of this new eld, aptly named The Wasteland, is dotted with countless buildings made of railroad ties. Natural cover from wild brush and dirt piles add to the realism of an outdoor battleeld. The arsenal at CMP includes the Stinger SMG, AK-47s, M4s, sniper ries, and many more. To bring an even more unique feel to the game, CMP Tactical Lazer Tag has created many custom props. Combatants can set or defuse a realistic looking briefcase bomb, take control of command points, and capture specialized cubes. All of these props add a multitude of gameplay options inspired both by real life combat and video games. If you are familiar with almost any popular rst person shooter video game, youll be familiar with how this type of tactical laser tag feels. In addition to walk-in play, CMP Tactical Lazer Tag specializes in birthdays/ bachelor(ette) parties, corporate team building, and can handle groups large and small. This new breed of laser tag appeals to multiple groups of people, from veterans and new enlistees having fun using their skills in a different, much more fun setting to teenagers and entire families. Additional information on CMP can be found at their website at Reservations can be made by calling (414) 429-2735.

Geneva Lake Museum, 255 Mill St., Lake Geneva
Want to get your hands on history? The Geneva Lake Museum offers a chance to walk right into the past -- down Main Street, into a pioneer log cabin, a general store, family homes and more. Located in Lake Genevas former Power and Light Company building, the museum holds a wealth of treasures, artifacts and relics that tell the story of locals. From the Potowatomi tribe to the rst European settlers, to turn-of-the-century city dwellers, the museum captures moments both important and everyday. Families can walk down Main Street and visit the dentist, the post ofce and a schoolroom -- and thats just for starters. Exhibits on the railroad that once brought tourists to town include hands-on toy train fun for enthusiasts of all age, and kid-friendly displays make the past come alive. Now in its 30th year, the museum is experiencing a renaissance, say Curator Helen Brandt and Director Karen Jo Walsh. Gone are the velvet ropes and plexiglass dividers -- theres room to roam and plenty of opportunity to get up close to the treasures of history.

If you go
The Geneva Lake Museums 30th anniversary celebration is slated for Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18.

On Saturday, the public is invited for a free-admission celebration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Held in conjunction with International Museum Day, the event will feature fun for the whole family. The History Loves Company themed-day will include games, entertainment and demonstrations, along with special displays and the unveiling of two new exhibits. Woodland People and the Crane Windows display will be opened. The museum is located at 255 Mill St., in downtown Lake Geneva. Visit for more information.

Call Us Today To Find Out How You Can Benefit From All of Our Unique Seller Performance Services!

Good Morning from The Narrows on beautiful Geneva Lake! It is quiet, the water is calm, smooth as glass. There is no wind, as yet, this morning, just peacefulness! Spring has arrived and now we prepare and wait for the Golden Summer of Lake Geneva to begin. What is it about Lake Geneva that speaks of Golden Summers....the sounds of the motorboats, the graceful Lady of the Lake gliding along the shorelines, the sounds of the hustle and bustle in the quaint little towns, the sounds of the children on the beaches, the historic mansions, meandering Lake Shore Path or a sundowner with family and friends relaxing in the traditional Lake Geneva fashion , porch swings and lakeside hammocks. Spring also marks the arrival of our very unique Lake Geneva Real Estate Market.While it is true that stories and history are packed into each property and area around the lake, other parts of the modern day Lake Geneva life dove tails quite tastefully with the historical. Our Real Estate market has seen lakefront homes SOLD over the $2M price point. Every spring brings renewed interest in Lake Geneva Real Estate. Summer is just as much a state of mind as it is a season. Summers arrival is something to celebrate! In our experience the phrase Where there is communication, there is a way has become proven and paramount. When considering selling your home, it is important to realize the actual process of preparing your home. Arriving at a comfortable asking price, negotiating the sale price and finally coming to the close ,is a Business Transaction. The other aspect of the transaction, is the realization and acceptance that your well tended, carefully manicured and nurtured home, filled with memories and history, is now in transition. It needs to transition from one loving family to the next. The business transaction of the process is where the Melges Team is valuable to you.We are here to guide, assist, and review with you the most current market statistics and trends. On a personal note: Years ago, on quiet, calm, early mornings, like this, wed look to the east and see the lazy early morning of the town of Lake Geneva, look a bit north and catch the morning mist in Williams Bay and look due west and see the curve of Black Point, heading down into Fontana. Anywhere on Geneva Lake has countless memories of quiet, still mornings, and beautiful sunsets. While the market changes and trends evolve the investment of a property on Geneva Lake is more than just a house We understand the value of a pier that has withstood generations of kids and grandkids. Thats why we are here and will always be on the water, living in the reality of the market, but always honoring the traditions that have gotten all of us to this place.

What is it about Lake Geneva that speaks of Golden Summers....the sounds of the motorboats, the graceful Lady of the Lake gliding along the shorelines, the sounds of the hustle and bustle in the quaint little towns, the sounds of the children on the beaches, the historic mansions, meandering Lake Shore Path or a sundowner with family and friends relaxing in the traditional Lake Geneva fashion , porch swings and lakeside hammocks. Spring also marks the arrival of our very unique Lake Geneva Real Estate Market. While it is true that stories and history are packed into each property and area around the lake, other parts of the modern day Lake Geneva life dove tails quite tastefully with the historical. Our Real Estate market has seen lakefront homes sold over the $2 million price point. Every spring brings renewed interest in Lake Geneva Real Estate. Summer is just as much a state of mind as it is a season. Summers arrival is something to celebrate! In our experience the phrase Where there is communication, there is a way has become proven and paramount. When considering selling your home, it is important to realize the actual process of preparing your home. Arriving at a comfortable asking price, negotiating the sale price and nally coming to the close ,is a Business Transaction. The other aspect of the transaction, is the realization and acceptance that your well tended, carefully manicured and nurtured home, lled with memories and history, is now in transition. It needs to transition from one loving family to the next. The business transaction of the process is where the Melges Team is valuable to you. We are here to guide, assist, and review with you the most current market statistics and trends. On a personal note: Years ago, on quiet, calm, early mornings, like this, wed look to the east and see the lazy early morning of the town of Lake Geneva, look a bit north and catch the morning mist in Williams Bay and look due est and see the curve of Black Point, heading down into Fontana. Anywhere on Geneva Lake has countless memories of quiet, still mornings, and beautiful sunsets. While the market changes and trends evolve the investment of a property on Geneva Lake is more than just a house I understand the value of a pier that has withstood generations of kids and grandkids. Thats why I am here and will always be on the water, living in the reality of the market, but always honoring the traditions that have gotten all of us to this place. See the Melges team ad on page 27 of this issue for contact information.

Prepare your outdoor entertaining spaces

Few things are better than having a functional and beautiful outdoor space to entertain guests. Having a great outdoor space enables a person to host parties or intimate gatherings all year long. Establishing an entertaining space and maintaining that space are essential when planning another year of fun in the sun. There are many things homeowners can do to ensure their entertaining space is safe and functional. As the season approaches, include some landscaping and decorating components to your preparatory plans to make the space as comfortable and aesthetically appealing as possible. Here are a few key tips for readying your yard for entertaining possibilities. Expand on these basics to customize an area for your unique needs. Check the area for any needed repairs. Prior to your rst entertaining session, look over the deck or patio to take note of any aws that may present safety hazards. Are there any loose railings? Are all screws and nails ush so they do not cause tripping? Hire a reputable contractor. If you are just laying the groundwork for a new patio or deck, it is important to get the necessary permits and then hire a person who has been properly vetted. Check qualications and licensing before hiring a contractor and ask to view a portfolio of his or her previous work. Think about closing in a portion of a deck or patio. The use of a canopy, netting or even greenery to protect an entertaining space can help minimize weather-related damage to outdoor furniture. Netting will keep a good number of biting insects at bay when the weather is warm and humid. Having a bit of concealment also means you can create a private space that isnt easily viewed by neighbors or passersby. Plan well-dened areas. Just as rooms serve different purposes inside of the home, outdoor areas can be separated according to usage. Establish a sitting nook where guests can gather and talk. Have a bar or serving area where refreshments are made and served. Make sure there is a shaded area for when the sun is too uncomfortable to make sitting outside enjoyable. Similarly, have a sunny area where people can soak up a few rays or dry off after a dip in the spa or pool. Dont forget to establish a spot for the kids to converge with scaleddown amenities. Consider a replace or re pit. For centuries man (and woman) has gathered around re for socialization and a means to warming up. Having a backyard replace, pit or chiminea is a conversation-starter, a decorative focal point, and a functional tool to extend the number of seasons in which outdoor entertaining can take place. Place the re wisely and with concern for safety. It should be out of the way of foot trafc, but central enough so that it can be a gathering point. Invest in quality outdoor furniture. Todays yards are extensions of a homes interior. Guests no longer want to sit on uncomfortable metal or plastic furniture. There are many different outdoor sofas and chairs that are as stylish as they are comfortable. These pieces can be matched to the decor inside your home for a cohesive look. Accessorize. Consider the creature comforts of indoors and mimic that outdoors. Dont shy away from hanging artwork on an exterior wall or using urns or pottery to decorate the space. Weather-resistant materials ensure everything from clocks to televisions can be used outdoors. Think about having an entire set of serving dishes and other entertaining items for the outdoors.
