Onsager backs April referendum

District still awaits final budget from state
Derek Spellman
Unified Newspaper Group

Superintendent Tim Onsager on Monday night recommended an April 2014 election for an expected referendum issue. The school board has not yet voted on whether to seek one, although it is expected to do in December under a broader, preliminary timeline outlined by Onsager during Monday nights board meeting. Under a worst-case scenario, the district could face a shortfall of around $5 million once a referendum backed by voters in 2010 expires next year. The size of the hole will depend on the states next biennial budget, which is expected to pass this summer. Onsager recommended the district pose a referendum to voters in the April 1, 2014, election, acknowledging that scenario only gives us one shot before the 2010 referendum measure expires but that it also

Despite a downpour as the parade wound down Sunday, Stoughtons Syttende Mai heritage festival was a success, said coordinator Laura Trotter. To see the weekend come together with all the volunteers, it was overwhelming to know how much support there was from the community, Trotter said. Trotter credited all the volunteers and city staff who helped out with organizing and running the event. I was just amazed at how much the city helps with this festival, Trotter said, citing the work of the police, fire, EMS, streets and city hall. It was just a joy to work with everyone. They do so much behind the scenes. Trotter said that there were a few minor glitches throughout the weekend, but a few

Courier Hub 2 Brew pub plans still tentative

May 23, 2013
Derek Spellman
Unified Newspaper Group

Despite last weeks backing from the Common Council, plans for starting a new brew pub in the former Stellas Speakeasy still remain tentative. The council on May 14 unanimously approved a conditional-use permit for the Viking Brew Pub to set up inside the Tobacco Junction Building at 515 E. Main St. But the owner of Viking Brew Pub, Vik Malling, told the Hub on Tuesday that plans remain tentative and depend on the final lease arrangement with the building owner. If those plans dont pan out, Malling said he would look for a different place in town, although he probably would have to undergo the application process

through the city again for a different location. Plans previously presented to the citys Plan Commission, which unanimously recommended approval, stated Malling hoped to sell craft beer brewed on the premises, as well as wine and pub food. Those plans had also called for an 800-squarefoot expansion to the existing spot, located on the buildings east side, by extending out an existing wall. The space is currently about 2,200 square feet. Malling said he was drawn to the buildings location and history. Situated on Main Street, Stellas had been a popular local watering hole before it closed down several years ago. Malling said that space has been vacant ever since.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! (608) 257-4285

Msgr. Gerard Healy has been giving to the Stoughton community for 24 years as the parish pastor at St. Anns Catholic Church. On Monday, the community will get a chance to say thanks. St. Anns will host a celebration for Healy from 3:306:30 p.m. Monday at the parish grounds. Healy will be stepping down as the parish pastor in July, although he will still be available to help in the area. Im not retiring from being a priest, he said. According to the Madison diocese website, retired priests often continue to serve in their home diocese. Many of the retired priests in the Diocese of Madison assist our active clergy with weekday and weekend Mass obligations, and other duties as their schedules allow, the website stated. The churchs canon law says a priest must retire after reaching 75 years old. After successfully requesting to stay on a year past that, Healy said its time. He has been a priest with St. Anns and five other parishes in southwestern Wisconsin for a total of 52 years. Raised in County Longford in Ireland, he was ordained a priest in 1961. He had committed to the Diocese of Madison and after his ordination he flew to

Wisconsin and began serving as an associate at Our Lady of Assumption in Beloit. I grew up in a different day and age, Healy recalled in a May 20 phone interview with the Hub. Growing up in rural Ireland, he saw how much people relied on God and saw a culture of vocations around him. I grew up in that atmosphere, he said. After serving in Beloit for several years, Healy moved to St. Dennis in Madison, and then a few years after that, was asked to return to the Beloit area to help build a new church and parish in Clinton named St. Stephens, according to information provided by a St. Anns parishioner. From there, Healy moved to Bloomington, Wis., and served at St. Marys Parish. Following that, he served for 10 years in Cross Plains at St. Francis Xavier. He came to St. Anns in June 1989. During the early 1990s,

the population of Stoughton was about 12,000 and St. Anns was bursting at the seams with a waiting list to get into the school, local historian and St. Anns member Carl Sampson said. Fr. Healy conducted many listening sessions with parishioners to find a way to accommodate the growing needs of the church, school and the parish community.

After a parish survey was conducted, a long-range planning commission formed and pledges made to finance half the cost of a new church, the Diocese gave approval to construct a St. Anns new church. The new location doubled the size of its previous facility, while remaining within the available land. Permission to work on the lower level began shortly after and was immediately put to use for retreats, funeral luncheons and religious education. It was officially dedicated in 2005. Yet church members have also cited Healys work beyond just building projects. Eileen Heinrichs noted Healys work forming a committee to get Stoughtons St. Vincent De Paul thrift store, popularly known as St. Vinnys, up and running. Healy cited measures to promote spiritual growth -- the Renew Faith program in 2000, religious education programs at St. Ann School, teen participation in World Youth Day and church members participation in Christian Experience Weekends. With Gods help, people can accomplish some pretty amazing things, Healy said. Plenty of parishioners and community members likewise have high praise for Healy. Sharon Mason-Boersma, a community social worker at Dane County Department of Human Services, described Healy as a genuine person (who) has been (an) invaluable resource to help those in need in our community. Pastor Jim Koza, Skaalen chaplain, said Healy is the most gracious, gentle, flexible, dedicated, and witty priest I have ever known. And Healy has kind words for the community. I enjoy what I do, and I enjoyed Stoughton. Im very grateful, he said. Editors note: Some of the information in this article came from a submitted article from St. Anns parishioner Lisa Clark.

Residents asked to guide parks, open space planning

$31K agreement for Kettle West gets councils OK

Mark Ignatowski
Unified Newspaper Group

The citys Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of revising its Parks and Open Space Plan, and in order to help guide the process, the department is conducting a survey of area residents. Parks and Recreation supervisor Tom Lynch said the city revises its plan every five years the last survey was in 2007 and is using essentially the same survey as it the past. We wanted it the same so that we could compare to see if people still feel the same about the parks, he explained. The plan makes the city eligible for grant funding, and Lynch want to make sure that we get good public input. The last time we did this we had 667 responses, and that was considered really well, he said. We hope we can exceed that and make it a better survey. The city has had almost 400 completed surveys returned so far, Lynch said. He hopes to have the surveying done by the late summer or fall. Once its completed, city staff will begin discussing what to include in the plan. The city is using a program called Survey Monkey, which is designed to compile data and facilitate the process. Staff and committee members are working together to complete much of the update in-house, Lynch wrote in an email to the Hub. The plan acts as a roadmap for future decisions regarding how parkland is developed. The citizen surveys are available at various locations around the city: the senior center, the library,

Progress is being made on development plans for Kettle Park West, as the city just approved a preannexation agreement with the developer last week. The city agreed to the pre-annexation agreement, a document that spells out some of the improvements that will be made to the property. The plan calls for up to $7 million in taxpayer assistance. In approving the agreement, the city also agreed to pay the developer,

Kettle Park West, LLC, $31,300 for costs associated with completing the urban service area agreement in 2011. That ended with a regional planning bodys approval to extend sewer lines to the property, a necessary step for most urban development. City planning and development director Rodney Scheel previously said that the city had several existing properties approved to be in the USA that were not part of the developers plan. If those properties wish to connect to metropolitan sewer services

in the future, they would repay the city for the costs to make those improvements. The city paid the $31,300 out of its economic development fund. Scheel told the council the city received an annexation petition for the area and that the council will likely discuss it at their next meeting, May 28.

planned to be used for the expansion of a subdivision north of the land. The annexation petition states that the developer will have to pay to have sewer and water connections made to the citys system. The area will be zoned as rural holding. The state Department of Administration found no issues with the request, Scheel previously told the Dunkirk annexation citys planning commisT h e c o u n c i l a l s o sion. The property will be in approved the annexation of 10.5 acres from the Town Ward 4 of the city. of Dunkirk near Race Track Park. The land is

City Hall, and the Chamber of Commerce office. The survey is designed to help city staff understand the publics opinions about facilities and recreational activities offered in existing parks, as well as serve as a blueprint for the types of facilities that might be built in the future, Lynch said. Responses to questions tell Lynch and his staff which parks are used the most and what amenities residents would like to see in the parks. The survey also asks residents opinions about their priorities for the parks and such issues as overall satisfaction, cleanliness, and the maintenance of equipment and turfgrass. In the past we had a consultant to help with this, but we just decided that we could do most of this ourselves, Lynch said. We were doing a lot of it anyway. So well do as much as we can inhouse, but Ill have to get some information from some people and pay for it. Well also have to have some really good mapping done that we cant do. For more information, call 873-6746.

Letters to the editor

Council has done little to ease assessment pain

I was first struck with much cynicism when I saw the headline in the May 2 issue of the Hub regarding public reaction to yet another special assessment to property owners for street repairs in their neighborhoods. Reading the article just reinforced that reaction. The city council claims to be sympathetic and agrees that changes should be made, yet isnt able to come up with anything else. The only mitigation option is a financing plan allowing homeowners to pay the assessment in installments, plus 3.75 percent interest. If the city council is as sympathetic as they claim to be, why isnt the interest rate lower? For that matter, why is there interest at all? Reducing or eliminating the interest would be a good first step from a council that states changes should be made. Terry Anschutz Stoughton

Hall of Fame committee should heed suggestions

Several years ago I suggested the name of a local boy to the committee (whoever they are) for the Hall of Fame. He was president of his senior class at West Point and went on to a distinguished career as a Major General during World War II. The committee chose an undertaker, a wealthy widow, and now an ex-mayor. I am sorry, General. I thought you deserved to be recognized for your service. Duane W. Thorsen Oconomowoc

A runners lesson: You get what you pay for I

a week, I was dead set against plopping down a lot of money for running shoes. I bought shoes from wherever I had a gift card. I sure as heck was not about to spend $80 for shoes any shoes. That turned out to be a really, really bad decision. Of course, being resilient (or stubborn as my wife says), I tried to gut it out through the first few months. First came the knee pains. Then the ankle pains. Then the back pains. Then some weird looking blisters formed under and then cracked my toenails. And then it just became too painful to run. So, reluctantly, I decided to go to an actual running shoe store instead of the big box store with the cheap shoes sold at a discount. I painfully parted with my $80, and to my horror I learned that, no, you cant get two years out of a pair of running shoes. Two years and a half-dozen pairs later, I still wince whenever I have to shell out money for running shoes. That does beat wincing because my back aches or pain shoots through my knees. It also reinforced one of the most important lessons I have learned as a journalist: Life is about tradeoffs. I spend a lot more money than I want on running; in exchange, I am able to continue running, and so I have more energy, a healthier heart and better self-image. I give up in one area but I get something else in another. Its the same dynamic when governments and businesses wrestle with whether and how to invest in a time of austerity. Im a Missouri native, and we are known for being tight-fisted with our money. Some of you know I lived in Joplin for more than seven years before I moved to Wisconsin. Ill be honest: our taxes were lower than they are here. But Ill be honest on this front: although Joplin was a nice place to live, we didnt have the fine libraries that you see in Stoughton and across Dane County. We didnt have the nice parks and green spaces. We had little in the way of hike and bike trails. The graduation rate at our local high school was in the high seventies; the graduation rate here is in the high 90s. Its not for me to say whether one place or approach is better than the other. They both carry their own advantages and disadvantages. Yet in any endeavor, it is important to know the cost of what you do or dont do. In the endeavor of running, it turns out that someone was right: You get what you pay for. As for my wife being right in other areas, well, of course she is.

Merger could bring more access

Studio 184, a new Stoughton business, focuses on upcycling tired or old items by giving them new life. Owner Cindy Gazso uses special paint to freshen up chairs, beds, tables, dressers, mirror frames, walls and more.

A pending merger between SSM Health Care and Dean Health Systems will not change Stoughton Hospitals relationship with SSM, although the merger is expected to provide more access to primary care and specialist physicians, Stoughton Hospital said. Last month SSM Health Care, one of the largest Catholic health systems in the country, and Dean Health Systems, a large multi-specialty physician group, announced that they had an agreement under which the physician-owned Dean and its subsidiaries would become part of SSM Health Care, pending the approval of Dean physician shareholders, the Wisconsin Insurance Office of the Commissioner of Insurance and other regulatory agencies. Stoughton Hospital is an independent community hospital owned and operated by the Stoughton Hospital Association but it also an affiliate of SSM Healthcare of Wisconsin.

Its all about upcycling in Stoughtons Studio 184. Upcycling means taking something tired or old that you already own furniture, for example and breathing new life into it, said Studio 184 owner Cindy Gazso. Inside one of Stoughtons newest businesses, that means using Chalk Paint decorative paint by Annie Sloan, a kind of paint developed in the United Kingdom, to freshen up chairs, beds, tables, dressers, mirror frames, walls and more. The Studio 184 website bills the paint as the best paint in the world for furniture and cabinetry. You dont need to go out and buy new furniture, Gazso said in her shop at 184 W. Main St. recently. Studio 184 opened its doors Feb. 1 in the space vacated by Midnight Moon Beads and Robert Rae Gallery. Its been helping customers transform kitchens, bathrooms, furnishings and more ever since. Its better than we could have ever anticipated, Gazso said of the business, which has an open studio model where visitors can actually see Gazso and her husband painting away. The studio itself is open, airy and fragrant from candles. Displays of colorful furniture chests, beds, mirrors and more decorated with the paints the store sells are arrayed about the front of the store. Beyond those displays are shelves of the paint itself, as well as swatches of fabric, jewelry and more. In the back is the studio, where visitors can actually see the couple at work or, depending on the day, walk into a workshop the couple offer to those with a do it yourself inclination.

Cindy Gazso said she discovered the paint several years ago through the blogosphere. The paint has been making inroads here since. Gazso and her husband have lived in Janesville for the last eight years and selected Stoughton as the site of their business because its residents embraced local businesses and because of the citys vibrant downtown, the couple previously said.

The business has several components to it, including the chalk paint itself, along with books, brushes and fabrics; workshops; and commission pieces. Studio 184 also sells body lotion, cotton scarfs, artwork and silpada silver jewelry in addition to the paint itself. It has also recently added a line of decorative paint mediums.

Thought for the week

The gospels of Mark and Luke both tell the story of the poor widow who gives two small copper coins to the temple treasury. This would have been the rough equivalent of putting in two pennies, but Jesus tells his disciples that she has actually given more than all the others. They have given from their abundance while she has given from what she had to live on. With income inequality growing in many countries we have a much larger number of both impoverished and wealthy people and consequently a hollowing out of the middle class. In the United States, the U. S. Census Bureau reports that 15.9 per cent, 48.5 million Americans, fell below the poverty line in 2011, while the Wall Street Journal reports that the wealthiest 1% of Americans saw their income increase by 275% over the last three decades. What income growth there has been in the United States during the last few years has been reaped mostly by the wealthiest of us. The poor are indeed getting poorer, the rich are getting richer, and more middle class folks are falling into poverty. It is certainly nice when the wealthy share their riches, but when billionaires donate a million dollars they are literally giving one thousandth of their wealth away. When someone living below the poverty line, whose net worth may be less than zero, gives a single dollar, they are literally giving of their very life. How many of us, whether rich or poor, can actually heed the call of the gospels to give of our substance, not just our abundance? Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; for they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all the living that she had. Luke 21:3-4

National Memorial Day traditions honor veterans

Visiting Gravesites
Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day because it was a time to honor the nations dead by decorating their graves with flowers. Many Americans make special flower arrangements and deliver them as a family to gravesites of their loved ones and ancestors. National Moment of Remembrance: In accordance with a congressional resolution passed in 2000, Americans pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time for a moment of silence to remember and honor the fallen. In Flanders Fields by John McCrea. Seeing the poem and its colorful illustration in a magazine, Georgia teacher and volunteer war worker to Moina Michael made a personal pledge always wear red silk poppies as an emblem for keeping the faith with all who died. She also began a campaign to make the poppy a universal symbol of tribute and support for veterans. Through her efforts, the idea was adopted in the United States and spread to England, France, Australia and more than 50 other countries.


Displaying the Flag

4600 Rome Corners Road, Brooklyn, WI 53521

The Memorial Day parade is a time-honored tradition in cities and towns across America, where neighbors come together to remember with pride those who sacrificed so much for our country.


The tradition of red poppies on Memorial Day was Source: by the 1915 poem concert/meaning/traditions.html

On Memorial Day, the U.S. flag should be displayed at half-staff until noon. In the morning, the flag should be raised momentarily to the top, then lowered to half-staff. Americans can also honor prisoners of war and those missing in action by flying the POW/MIA flag.

Students and parents alike once again will get a good look at much of our solar system next week during an annual Star Party organized by River Bluff Middle School. This years Star Party is set for 8:30 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, and will again take place outside Sandhill Elementary School. Telescopes will again be available for participants to use, said River Bluff science teacher Tom Palmer, who helps put on the event. Jim Lattis, a University of Wisconsin-Madison astronomer and director of the UW Space Place, also will be on hand during the evening and bring a computerized telescope that will be used to view the planets and the moon. The Star Party is my personal highlight of the year in 8th grade science, Palmer wrote in an email to the Hub. I cant tell you how many students over the years have said when viewing Saturn with its amazing rings through a telescope for the very first time that thats the coolest thing Ive ever seen. Thats why I do these Star Parties. This year, Star Partygoers will be able to look at Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn and Venus. Last years event had a total of nine different telescopes that were used, including some previously built from kits, Palmer said. Although organized by River Bluff, the party always takes place at Sandhill because the location presents a clear view and is on the edge of the city so

it has less light pollution. Its parking lot is also large enough to accommodate the expected crowd, the expected parking and the telescopes that will be on hand for people to use. The Star Party goes back to the late 1990s, when Palmer and fellow science teacher Melissa Maag began hosting them. The party presented River Bluff with an opportunity to use the telescopes it had built from kits provided through the University of Wisconsin-Madisons Scopes for Schools program. There are two backup dates for the party is the weather proves bad or too cloudy on May 29: the first is Thursday, May 30, while the second is Monday, June 3. The back-up parties would also take place at Sandhill and at the same time as the original date. As always, the party is free and open to students, families and residents of the Stoughton Area School District. For more information, call Palmer at 877-5574.

Stoughton high schoolers once again will be available to help senior citizens with technology questions on Friday at the Stoughton Senior Center.

During our great Civil War, Mothers and widows of those young men who were killed and buried on the battlefield visited and tended to the graves of their loved ones. As they did so, they also looked after the other graves, including those of soldiers from the other side. Every spring they returned to decorate the graves until the battlefield became a cemetery. As tributes and monuments were placed, it became a tradition to honor all our war dead. In 1967, the U.S. Congress passed a bill declaring that a national holiday shall be created to be called Memorial Day. Now every year on a Monday, in the spring when the flowers are blooming, our country celebrates with picnics and parades featuring American flags, floats and a brass band. Many communities have a special Memorial Ceremony in tribute to those who made it possible to live and enjoy the great freedom we have in the United States. Veterans have always honored the dead by serving the living. A person returning from a tour of duty in a war zone must start his or her life over. There is no picking up where you left off. Unfortunately for many, this re-adjustment becomes a struggle, and for some, it becomes impossible. More of our veterans take their own lives today than are killed in combat. It is a tragedy that has long been a part of war. All of us who served and survived to tell about it left part of our life in that far-away land. We also brought what happened there, home with us. It is a memory that can be more easily forgotten by some than others. Let us all welcome home our troops in a special way that lets them know they are indeed welcome and hope they will remain with us. To welcome home a loved one only to lose them in this way can be prevented by letting them know we care. Bring on the brats and strike up the band because the big parade starts at 10:00 AM with a wonderful program to follow at Mandt Park. Come one, come all as we celebrate our freedom and pay tribute to all those who made in possible.

A sincere Thank You to all those who served

Sharing the Badger South

Vikings share conference title for first time in over a decade

Track and field

Boys, girls advance several to sectionals

Severe thunderstorms might have never happened, but the Stoughton boys and girls track teams still stormed past the competition Monday in the WIAA Division 1 Verona regional at Verona Area High School. The Stoughton girls advanced to sectionals in three relays and nine other events, while the boys advanced two relays and four other events. Sectionals are Thursday at Waterford High School. Field events begin at 3:30 p.m., while track events start at 4:155 p.m.


One of the more impressive finishes on the night came by the legs of the boys 4x800 relay (senior Jacob Roe, junior Santiago Sarthou, sophomore Giles France and sophomore John McCune). The relay shaved nine seconds off their season best to finish first in 8 minutes, 22.83 seconds. Going in on paper, this regional was tougher than the

Senior Henry Klongland came into the Badger South Conference meet Wednesday at The House on the Rock Golf Resort as the two-time defending champion. Klongland didnt win his third, but he still finished third overall with a 76 to lead the Vikings to second place in the tournament with a 331, four strokes behind Madison Edgewood. That finish, however, still clinched a share of the first conference title in over a decade as the Vikings (4-1-1) and Edgewood (3-2-1) finished with 10 1/2 points with the addition of their conference records. But for Klongland, he felt he could have done better. He shot a 41 on the back nine after a couple of penalty strokes on the tough course that includes swirling winds, trees and many water hazards. It is kind of bittersweet to have to share the title with Edgewood, he said. We kind of wanted to come in here and win this, but that is how it goes sometimes. Klonglands sentiment was felt by the rest of the team, as well, but head coach Dave Taebel said it was due to the guys second guessing shots knowing they were so close to winning the title outright. Taebel added that it might not have been the perfect scenario, but he will take this any day. These kids are going to be able to put a number up on the wall and follow in the footsteps of some of the other programs that did that this year boys basketball and girls track. It is awesome, he said. They are going to be able to come in the gym for the rest of their lives and see a 13 up there under boys golf. And the best part of the feat for Taebel is how the team battled after a slow start. Three of the five Stoughton golfers were four- or five-over par after the first four holes, including senior Anders Tiffany who was four over after four holes. But Tiffany (81), senior Peter Campbell (87), junior Max Fergus (87) and senior Kip Nielsen (89) made lots of pars the rest of the way to not let the day get out of hand, which could have ended without a conference title at all with Fort Atkinson behind them (333).

They could have Senior Henry Klongland tees off on the 16th hole Wednesday in the Badger South Conference Golf meet at the

Junior Tanner Kahl (facing camera) celebrates a point with senior No. 2 doubles partner Elijah Thunell at Saturdays Badger Conference tennis tournament inside Nielsen Tennis Stadium. Kahl and Thunnel, the top seed in their flight, defeated second-seeded Tommy Wiesler and Connor AustriaKemble 6-1, 7-6 (6) of Edgewood in the championship match.

Vikings crown first champ in decade

Youll have to forgive junior Tanner Kahl and senior Elijah Thunell if they dont remember where they were the last time Stoughton boys tennis won a Badger Conference title. I was probably still watching cartoons or something, Kahl said when asked what we was doing back in 2003. Its pretty amazing. I didnt realize it had really been that long since Stoughton won a title here. Despite earning a top seed and rolling to a 6-2, 6-0 win over Monona Grove in their first match, conference proved anything but easy for Kahl and Thunell, who defeated secondseeded Tommy Wiesler and Connor Austria-Kemble, 6-1, 7-6 (6) to secure the championship. One of four matches going on the second day of the

tournament, the finish helped Stoughton come in a surprising second overall (24 points) in the Badger South results behind Madison Edgewood (41), who picked up titles at No. 3 and 4 singles. Northern Badger Waunakee scored the most points, crowing champions at No. 2 singles and 1 doubles. Starting the season out at No. 1 and 2 singles, respectively, Kahl and Thunell could have never imagined things playing out this way in a number of regards. First approached with the idea of moving to No. 2 doubles by head coach Ryan Reischel to give themselves a better shot of advancing further into the postseason tournament, both Kahl and Thunell had apprehension after working so hard to play atop the Vikings singles lineup over the offseason. Kahl even gave up soccer to focus more time on

tennis. For Thunell, things really started to click at 2 doubles in the duos fifth match at the Stoughton Invitational against Big Foot. We got down early against a good team and we came back and beat them, he said. That really helped get us over the hump and even communicating better on the court. Earning a first-round bye and a quick victory on Friday, Stoughton faced fourseeded Madison Edgewood early Saturday morning and needed some time to get things in order, coming back with straight-set wins to closeout the match 46-, 6-1, 6-3. Despite running their record to 12-0 as the Vikings 2 doubles team, Thunell and Kahl said coach Ryan Reischel never thought about switching the doubles lineup and they

The relay finished with a time of 8 minutes, 22.83 seconds; (below) Junior Maren Schultz reacts after clearing 5 feet. Though she cleared the bar for third place, she slipped on the mat getting back up.

The Stoughton baseball team was given a No. 4 seed in the WIAA Division 1 playoffs last weekend. Head coach Jeremy Dunnihoo did challenge the seeding, attempting to be a No. 3 seed. Janesville Craig was voted for, however, and remains the No. 3 seed. Madison West earned the No. 1 seed, while Beloit Memorial is the No. 2 seed. Stoughton hosts the winner of No. 5 Fort Atkinson/ No. 12 Delevan-Darien at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 30.

Continued from page 12 other regional. So we thought if we could make it through, we would have a really good chance to make state, boys head coach Nate Nelson said. ... To see all of our kids peaking right at the same time is awesome. Nelson did try to tell McCune to shut it down on the last 200 because it was apparent the they were going to win, but he said that isnt in Johns nature. McCune also helped the 4x400 relay move on with a third place finish. He joined junior Will Clark, sophomore Derek Schultz and junior Luke Logan to reach the finish line in 3:35.08. McCune added a third place in the 800 with a time of 2:03, a new personal record. Senior Jalen Clark also made sectionals with a fourth place in the 100 (11.58). Jalen has really been coming on strong, Nelson said. He was injured for the first half of the season and was only medically cleared in the last month, so I think he is starting to turn some heads now. Logan finished tied for second in the high jump (6-0) and also took third in the pole vault (11-6). Stoughton boys finished seventh of nine teams with 53 1/3 points. Janesville Craig won the regional (142).

Waunakee 12, Stoughton 2 (5 inn.)

The Vikings traveled to Waunakee, which is ranked No. 9 in the Wisconsin High School Baseball Coaches Association poll, Monday and lost 12-2 in five innings. Senior Zach Bower led the team at the plate (2-for-3), while senior Zach Nyhagen and junior Chris Lund added doubles. Sophomore pitcher Cade Bunell took the loss. He allowed four earned runs on seven hits in 2 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out one. Stoughton hosted Monroe

Tuesday and clinched at least a share of the Badger South Conference title with a 9-6 win. The Vikings trailed by one until scoring four runs in the fourth. Senior Tony Volk hit an RBI single, and Nyhagen smacked a three-run home run. Stoughton started the scoring with an RBI double by Volk in the first. Senior Ben Gerber added an RBI single in the second. In the third, Volk scored on a double steal, and seniors Zach Krueger and Dane Schultz hit and RBI double and an RBI single, respectively. Sophomore Alex Zacharias picked up the win, allowing six earned runs on five hits in four innings. He struck out five and walked three. Volk picked up the save. He allowed a hit and no runs in three innings. He struck out five and walked one. The Vikings played Madison Edgewood Wednesday in the Badger South finale but results did not meet the Courier Hubs Tuesday deadline. Look for them in next weeks paper. Stoughton travels to Portage at 5 p.m. Thursday and closes the regular season at 11 a.m. Saturday against Janesville Craig at home.


do good at conference and throughout the year and come here and perform the way I have been and peak at the right moment, Deutsch said. Posick continued her success at the pole vault with a top finish (10-0). She said she is happy with the height but has a goal of 11 feet by the end of the year. I felt like I had some of my best vaults ever tonight, Posick said. It was a great night to vault and a great night to do well. Sophomore Nikki Staffen is also moving on with a second-place finish in the mile and third place in the 800. Staffen was runner-up in the 1,600 with a time of 5:37.83, behind Janesville Parker senior Miranda Slabeck

(5:30.31). She was third in the 800 with a time of 2:30, a little under a second behind Verona junior Jenni La Croix and five and a half seconds behind Oregon junior Valerie Jones. Junior Hannah Sonsalla also made it to sectionals in multiple events. She was second in the 300 low hurdles (48.39) and second in the 200 (27.04). She was about 51 hundredths of a second behind Verona senior Katy Miller in the 300 hurdles. Junior Maren Schultz and sophomore Alexus Crockett also made sectionals. Schultz took third in the high jump with a height of 5-0, while Crockett was fourth in the shot put with a distance of 35-11 1/2.

Stoughton also moved three of four relays on. The 4x800 relay (senior Devan Montgomery, junior Katherine Rude, sophomore Katie Roe and junior Ashley Harnack) had the best finish with a second-place time of 10:12.87. The 4x400 (Montgomery, sophomore Jordyn Weum, senior Josie Logan and junior Katherine Rude) closed the night out with a third place (4:16.26). The 4x200 (freshman Maren Gryttenholm, Sonsalla, Weum and sophomore Kezia Miller) also made sectionals with a fourth-place finish (1:50.86). Stoughton girls finished with 129 points, behind Verona (134 1/2).

Rosholt named new hockey coach Utica drops Stoughton

Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

Home Talent League

Kris Rosholt was announced as the new Stoughton boys hockey coach to parents and student/athletes on Thursday, May 16. During that meeting the 25-year-old Rosholt touched on his Rosholt vision for the future of Vikings hockey. It starts with academics, followed by discipline and sportsmanship, he said. After that, it gets more into how I want them to play. Were going to play fast. Were going to play physical. Were going to be the hardest working team every time we step on the ice. Rosholt replaces Chris Bradford, who stepped down earlier this spring after two seasons with the Vikings. Though he said hes always been fairly familiar with Stoughton, especially the athletic side after playing crossover games in the Badger North Conference in every sport, Rosholt said he was blown away during the interview process. I was blown out of the water, from the administration down by how they go about the athletic side of the high school sports, he said. Its almost run like a Division III sports program. I was extremely impressed. Meeting with Stoughton players and parents two weeks ago, Rosholt said he could tell everyone was really passionate about the game of hockey. To see that through the kids and the parents on the first day was a really exciting moment, he said. I can tell its going to be a great atmosphere to be

a part. I feel with the talent offered in hockey, the community, the administration support and the youth program, Stoughton could be a powerhouse. They have been in the past and I just want to get that tradition going every year. Though he has no prior full-time experience as an assistant or head coaching at the varsity hockey level, Rosholt worked with youth level hockey and baseball at Reedsburg since his junior year. Stoughton Athletic Director Mel Dow said just in sitting down to talk with Rosholt It became evident Kris is going to be a great coach. He understands the direction a program needs to go by being a leader, Dow continued. Hes extremely motivated and prepared himself for this position long before being hired. While at UW-Whitewater he would return home each December through January to help out with the Beavers varsity hockey team. My former coach (Neil Mattson) kind of took me under his wing and taught me the ins and outs of the game and the behind the scenes aspects that you dont always see as a player, said Rosholt, who graduated from Reedsburg in 2006. A varsity athlete in football, hockey and baseball, Rosholt said hockey has always been his true passion. Its always been the sport thats come the most natural to me, he said. Its a large reason why he was the captain of the Beavers for three years while he played in Reedsburg, winning the Hobey Baker award as a senior. The game of hockey and the strategy behind it has always been a passion of mine, he said. Since I graduated high school, coaching has kind of taken

over. Rosholt, and former UW-W teammate Matt Weber also coached the Belleville varsity football team this past fall. He continues to be involved in the community athletically as well, playing infielder/pitcher on the Reedsburg Home Talent team. Having already landed a physical education and health teaching position at River Bluff Middle School for the fall, Rosholt said applying for the varsity heading coaching position when it became available was the obvious next move. Hockey is definitely my passion and I knew Id already be teaching in Stoughton, he said. Ill be able build relationships coming up through middle school and continue that into the high school level. Between my leadership skills, my motivation, the fact that Im in the district and my love for the game of hockey I just figured it would be perfect fit. The perfect fit for Rosholt following high school was UW-Whitewater where he was a key part of Warhawks football team that posted a 58-2 record, earning three NCAA Division III championships and one runner-up finish in his four years. Rosholt continued to pursue his NFL dream throughout last summer, receiving an invitation to attend the Green Bay Packers rookie camp last year. Following that however, he didnt receive any phone calls and decided to finish his student teaching last fall. All the while though he was still training and working hard in case he got a call from January through April. Once I got the teaching position and the head coaching position in Stoughton

If you arrived late to the annual Syttende Mai tilt between Utica and Stoughton late last Saturday, you didnt miss much. Both teams struggled to generate any kind of offense through 7 innings before the host Merchants finally pushed a pair of runs across in the home half of eighth. The visiting As made sure the lead was short lived, however, taking their only lead of the game with four runs in the top of the ninth. It was all ace Kyle Bates needed, however, taking the 4-2 victory behind a seventhstrike out, complete game effort in which he allowed seven hints and walked five. Its hard enough to get runs off Kyle anyway, you certainly cant give runs away, Merchants manager Dale Seffens said. Following back-to-back singles by Uticas Christian Stokstad and Max Gartzke, the Merchants threw away the sac bunt attempt of Curtis Holverson, which plated a run. Lead-off hitter Andy Martin officially broke the game open one batter later, lining a two-run double in the left-field corner. While both teams entered the game undefeated, another Stoughton (2-1) error allowed the As (3-0) to plate their fourth run of the inning.

Kyle Bates (29) celebrates Uticas 4-2 win over host Stoughton with catcher Christian Stokstad on Saturday at Norse Park.

A crucial baserunning error stifled the Merchants chances in the bottom of the ninth as Scott Nachreiner smoked a shot to the fence, but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Bates then induced Stoughtons final two batters to fly out following a walk to Tanner Klitzke to end the game. Stoughton hosts Deerfield (0-3) and Cambridge (1-2) in a pair of section crossover games at 1 p.m. Sunday and Monday. The As travel to Jefferson (2-1) at 1 p.m. on Sunday, but have a bye on Memorial Day. The Vikings and Utica opened Central Section Night League play last Thursday at Stoughton High School.

Tennis: Vikings advance two onto sectionals

Continued from page 12 certainly understood why. We beat them at a few drills in practice and let them hear about it, Thunell said. But they were undefeated during the conference dual meet season. They are our 1 doubles team. The Vikings finished fourth overall in the final Badger South team standings, which calculate dual meets and conference results with seven points. Madison Edgewood won its fifth straight title with 12 points, while Oregon (8 ) and Monroe (7 ) rounded out the top three. It was really indicative of how hard everyone worked over the offseason, head coach Ryan Reischel said. Seniors John Evans and Justin Shaffer entered the conference tournament with the Vikings second best seed but ended up taking fourth after back-to-back losses to Madison Edgewood 7-6 (5), 6-3 and 6-1, 3-6, 6-2 to top seeded Sauk Prairie in the third-place match. The second-seeded duo, defeated Reedsburg 7-6 (6), 6-3 for their only win. Manny Calzada and Austin Scheel, meanwhile, outplayed their seed, moving up from sixth to third at No. 3 doubles. Opening the tournament with 6-2, 6-1 and 6-3, 6-2 wins over Sauk Prairie and third-seeded Monona Grove, respectively, the Vikings fell 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 against secondseeded Madison Edgewood. Calzada and Scheel fought back to third though, defeating Waunakees Mitch Ernest and Josh Cordell 6-4, 4-6, 6-4. Sixth-seeded Gabe Rowley played to a third-place finish at No. 4 singles, rolling 6-2, 6-3 over Monona Groves Christian Docter in his final match. Rowley defeated Reedsburg before upsetting third-seeded Drew Christofferson of Oregon, 0-6, 6-1, 6-4 to advance on to Saturday where he fell 6-2, 6-2 against second-seeded Sam Skaaland, 6-2, 6-2. Freshman Asher McMullin picked up a 7-6 (6), 6-2 win over Reedsburgs Kevin Hinz at No. 2 singles before falling to second-seeded Billy OBrien of Edgewood, 6-0, 6-1. With Stoughtons Kahl and Thunell moving over to doubles, Matthew Gharrity stepped up to No. 1 singles where he fell 6-0, 7-5 to Portages Matt Peterson. Nathan Lawlor also bowed out in the opening round, losing 7-5, 6-0 to Monona Groves Alex McDade.

Golf: Stoughton earns sectional berth

Continued from page 12 given up, but they just battled and battled. Klongland, who finished tied for second at the WIAA Division 1 state tournament last year, also earned No. 1 All-Badger South Conference honors at the meet. he accidentally hit the wrong ball on hole 12. That error cost him a couple of strokes, but despite the mistake, he said his play definitely gives him confidence moving on. I was striking the ball well, and if everyone is playing good on the same day, we can shoot just as good as some of the other teams, Fergus said. It always helps to player like Henry who can go so low. But if we are all on, then it helps out a lot. Klongland led the team with a 75, while Campbell finished the scoring with a 90. Madison Memorial (312), Verona (319) and Middleton (320) also advanced as a team. Sauk Prairies RJ Budd (75), Oregons Grant ODonnell (78), Waunakees Max Murphy (78) and Madison Wests Lake Larson (79) all advanced as individuals. Sectionals are at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 28, at River Run Golf Course in Sparta. Onalaska, Holmen, Tomah and Baraboo advanced out of the Baraboo regional and will also join Stoughton at sectionals.


Klongland might be the Stoughton No. 1, but the Vikings needed others to step up Tuesday at Pleasant View Golf Course in the WIAA Division 1 Middleton regional. And this time it was big rounds by Fergus (78) and Tiffany (82) that put Stoughton ahead of Waunakee for the fourth and final sectional spot with a 325-332 advantage. Some of us had some rough holes and couple of loose shots but kept battling and kept doing what it takes, Taebel said. It is all about surviving and advancing this time of year. Fergus might have shot even lower, but

Freshman Sam Tepp singled twice and junior Sarah Seaton helped her cause with an RBI double in the sixth inning, but it wasnt enough. Hosting the teams first playoff game in well over a decade, eighth-seeded Stoughton hosted ninth-seeded Burlington on Tuesday and fell 3-1 in the opening round of the WIAA regionals. Tepps one-out single to center field in the bottom of the sixth inning resulted in the Vikings only run when Seaton doubled the opposite way into the left-field corner. I just wanted to attack the ball, said Tepp, who collected half of Stoughtons hits. In pressure situations, I didnt want to think about the score. I just wanted to get on base.

Stoughton left four runners on base in the loss, while striking out 15 times against sophomore Danielle Koenen. Burlington freshman Chyanne Onstad singled in the go-ahead run in the fifth before the Demons iced the game in the top of the sixth as Randee Jackson singled, stole second and eventually came home on a pair of wild pitches. The last playoff game the Vikings hosted in was in 2011, only because higher seeded Mukwonago didnt have an outfield fence. Stoughton graduates right fielder/pitcher Casey Beckwith, catcher Emily Auby and flex/second baseman Amy Hansen. I asked everyone of these girls to be part of this team, whatever their role might be, head coach Steve Bahrke said. Everyone one of them stepped up and slid into those roles.

HTL: Utica takes annual rivalry game

Continued from page 14 Stoughton, the visiting team, took the game 8-6. A back-and-forth game through five innings, Stoughton put up four runs in the top of the seventh thanks to an RBI sacrifice fly off the bat of Jake Wenzel and RBI singles from T.J. DiPrizio and Nachreiner. DiPrizio finished 2-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs and a double. Brad Ashmore and Doug Vike each had two hits for Utica. Erick Sperloen went the distance for the Merchants, striking out five and walking just as many. Jason Hougan got the start for Utica, taking the loss after tossing 6 innings before giving way to Gartzke.

Police: Burglaries, OWI cases drop while theft increases

Continued from page 1 incident report data toward the end of the year, chief Greg Leck told the Hub . Still, some crime categories decreased while the total number of calls continued to grow in 2012. The department handled 22,468 incidents in 2012, compared to 18,719 in 2011 and 13,195 in 2010. Despite the increase in calls, arrests for OWIs decreased and burglary cases dropped. The department saw an increase in person crimes such as battery arrests, sex crimes and drug arrests. Leck said those increases are part of the ebb and flow of crime cases and can vary greatly because theyre usually singular incidents. If you have increased activities, your chances of having more of these increases, Leck said. Weve seen a steady climb in these activities. Meanwhile, crimes like burglaries tend to be committed by a small group of people, Leck said. We can end up with vast


Arrests 2009 2010 2011 2012 Battery 34 36 38 47 Sex Crimes 25 22 34 46 Fraud 14 12 15 36 Drug offenses 115 133 130 205 reductions when we arrest just a few people, he said. The number of burglaries in Stoughton dropped by more than half from 2011 to 2012; 69 cases were logged in 2011 compared to just 26 in 2012. Those numbers are more in line with previous years data the city saw 40 burglary cases in 2010 and 32 in 2009. The number of theft incidents in 2012 was similar to 2011 341 cases were logged in 2012 compared to 324 in 2011. Those numbers, however, are still higher than the 202 cases seen in 2010. The severity and number of OWI incidents has decreased in Stoughton, reversing a trend the department saw during the past few years. In 2012, 122 OWI arrests were made in the city, down from 131 in 2011 and 155 in 2010. The average bloodalcohol content of OWI drivers was down to 0.15 percent, compared to 0.17 percent reported in 2011. The amount is still nearly double the states legal limit of .08 percent. The department participated in several traffic enforcement grants in 2012, including the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign and the Booze and Belts OWI enforcement program. The department plans to continue special enforcement programs this year. In 2013, the department will continue to carry on OWI enforcement with three to four specialized OWI

patrols throughout the year, the report reads. The police department will be a member of the Capitol Area OWI Task Force again in 2013. Despite the drop in some types of cases, Leck said the department is still in need of additional staff because of the increase in number of calls. The department has 20 sworn officers, all of whom are fulltime staff. Leck said additional staff would allow officers to respond to more calls in a timely manner and would give officers a chance to follow up on cases more something that could lead to more crime prevention. The departments new reporting system will give better data of how long certain calls have to wait for an officer to respond. That will give the department a clear idea of how much additional staff is needed. Its such a reoccurring theme, Leck said of the need for more staff. Its not going to go away until addressed.

Referendum: District still needs to see state budget

Continued from page 1 provides our best bet at passing it. The April election should have a higher turnout than the February 2014 primary election, and there are no regular elections scheduled for this coming fall. Board member Donna Tarpinian noted that the April election day would come soon after spring break, a period when many families and students might be out of town. But Onsager also said that if the district sought one in February and it failed, there would not be enough time to pose the measure again in April. Under state law, the district must approve a resolution authorizing the referendum at least 73 days before the Election Day. The school district has been using several different timelines one recommended by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, another based on its successful 2010 measure to guide its preparation for the next one. The board which has three new members since the April school board elections from this year saw and briefly discussed those timelines Monday. Were right on the timelines, Onsager said. It is expected that the district will finalize a timeline for this pending referendum by August. The results of a community survey are expected to be presented to the school board in October, the same month the district would use to determine the referendums final costs and needs. The following months would be used to solicit input from parents, staff and community groups and educate the electorate about the issue, according to one of the timelines. For now, however, the district awaits the final state budget. Gov. Scott Walkers initial proposal called for modest increases in funding for schools but a freeze in their spending limits meaning the additional funding would go toward property tax relief instead of new revenue for school districts. Some lawmakers including fellow Republicans have balked at that freeze and called for some increase in schools spending limits. That call could gather momentum considering that the most recent projections show the state is expected to take in $500 million more in revenue than expected over the next two years. Erica Pickett, the districts director of business services, told the districts Finance committee on Monday that Stoughton did not want to start talking in-depth about numbers for the referendum before the state budget is passed. She renewed warnings that some school officials voiced in recent months: that putting out a number now runs the risk of having to revise it, up or down, later. If your numbers start to change by hundreds of thousands of dollars that could affect credibility, she said.

resentatives from all employee groups are working together to control costs, Changes need to be made to comply with the Affordable Health Care Act., Starting next year, administrative employees will also be paying a co-pay premium equal to that paid by other employee groups. 3. Discharge of staff (rumor is that we are terminating people for no reason). When in fact: No staff member has been terminated in the last 13 years, Under new standards, a majority of Dane County School Districts have or will terminate staff this year, we will not! In addition to the handbook, Staff have state and federal protections 4. Referendum Planning (rumor is that the District has not begun planning for the next referendum). The fact is: The District actually started the day after the last referendum was passed The Board continually looks at the financial landscape of the District, The Board refinanced debt to save taxpayer money We have sought outside funding for programs (i.e Fab Lab, donations for CNA program), I foreshadowed in the HUB over two years ago the need to go to future referendum, The Board brought in Dale Knapp, and Bambi Statz to discuss school funding, The District has done two Applied Population studies since the last referendum, I continually work with city and towns on economic development (I am on the Stoughton, Area Future Urban Development Area (FUDA) Planning Steering Committee), We have surveyed staff, students, parents, and will again survey the entire community late summer early fall, The Board uses the Baird model (the district runs multiple financial scenarios several times during the year.), The Board adopted a resolution supporting fair funding for our schools, The Board has met with legislators several times over the last two years., We are keeping a close eye on the state budget and will formally determine the referendum dollar amount when we know the information (presently it is our best estimation on dollar amount) 5. Open enrollment (Rumor is that we do not care about the number of students we are losing to open enrollment). The fact is: If a neighboring district does not have a 4K program students from that district cannot open enroll into Stoughton for our 4K program (This is state law, in fact every year we have to deny students based on this), The current Parent Enrolled-out Survey (which we began working with School Perceptions to draft the survey in October) is not the first survey the district has conducted (Mary Gavigan did a survey and I have done several informal surveys calling some families personally over the last two years), Only 31% answered our survey conducted by an independent firm. They contacted everyone on the list a minimum of 4 times., The open enrollment window is now longer and the District has denied several exception applications to open enroll out outside the window. (The Board has denied several applications based on the fact that we offer the program and did not believe it was in the best interest of the student to approve the open enrollment) CONSENT AGENDA: A motion was made by Tina Hunter, seconded by John Pundt, and carried unanimously to approve the March 18, 2013 regular board meeting minutes; approval of the March 14 April 3, 2013 check register as presented; We would like to say thank you to the following individuals and groups and move approval of the following donations to the District: $12,500.00 for the high school FABLAB from the Wahlin Foundation; $100.00 for high school senior awards from The Garment Shop; $22,060.76 for high school girls hockey from the Power Play Hockey Club; $7,892.50 for high school boys hockey from the Center Ice Club; $100.00 for a trainers bench at the high school from UW Madison School of Medicine; $675.00 for Fox Prairie music program from donations received at the 5th grade Alice in Wonderland performance; $188.09 for high school choir tour expenses from Buffalo Wild Wings; $25.00 for high school scholarships from Margaret Larson Scholarship Fund; $100.00 for high school FFA expenses from MinnTex Citrus Inc.; and, related budget adjustments totaling $43,641.35; approval of first semester 2013-14 Youth Options Requests totaling $4,495.00; approval of a high school Girls Hockey Coop Agreement for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years at no cost to the district; approval of administrator contracts with salary increases not to exceed $35,500.00, to be distributed by the District Administrator, and changing administrative contracts to include health insurance premium copay equal to other district employees; and, approval of salary increases for nonrepresented employees as follows: Special Services $24,302.00; Administrative Assistants $16,453.00 and Bus Drivers $8,550.00.
