Benefit walk draws

nearly 1,000 participants

Bus route
approved by
Village on
trial basis
The Kohler Village Board approved a re-
quest by two senior residents to alter the
Sheboygan City Transit bus service route
from Sheboygan Falls through Kohler on a
trial basis beginning June 1, 2010 and end-
ing October 9.
The bus will travel the entire length of
School St. through the West 4 area near
Aspen Ct., then follow its usual route until
Willow Creek Dr., where the route deviates
slightly again bringing the bus past the con-
dominiums on Woodlake Rd. before exiting
onto Highland Dr. to return to Sheboygan.
The change will provide easier access for
many elderly residents and anyone wishing
to use alternative transportation. A more di-
rect route to Deer Trace Shopping Center is
also being considered for future study.
What began as an idea to organize a little
walk around the school with Kohler school
classmates of 5-yr-old Tara Uselding to
show support for her fight with cancer, grew
into a benefit walk around Kohler that drew
nearly 1,000 participants to Roosevelt Park
in on May 22, 2010. Though the final num-
bers weren’t in as of this printing, the benefit
is estimated to have raised approximately
$21,500, according to organizer, Kerri
A rainy Friday gave way to mild temper-
atures and dry weather for the 1- and 3-mile
walk, brat fry, bake sale, raffle, and silent
auction. Roosevelt Park was awash with a
sea of yellow as participants in their “Team
Tara” T-shirts awaited the kickoff announce-
ment by Tara’s 8-yr old brother, Ty. Tara
chose the T-shirt design from among contest
entries submitted by Kohler school students.
In April, the Uselding family was in the
midst of preparing for a mid-May move to
Colorado where Scott, a major in the U.S.
Air Force, had started a new job at Lowry
Air Force Base. Shawna took Tara to the
doctor for what she thought was minior di-
gestive issues, but the couple were stunned
to learn that Tara had cancer. She was diag-
nosed with a rare fast-growing and highly
malignant form of cancer called rhab-
domyosarcoma. Scott flew back and joined
Shawna at Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee
where Tara was immediately put on a 5-day
round of chemotherapy to shrink tumors in
her abdomen that were growing by the day
and too large to operate on.
When Kohler resident Kerri Roeder
heard the devastating news, she jumped into
action organizing a team of volunteers that
came to be known as “Team Tara.” Ken An-
derson set up a website at
where online donations could be accepted
The site also links to a CaringBridge page
where the family keeps everyone updated on
Tara’s progress.
In four weeks time, the team of volun-
teers organized an event that normally takes
months of preparation. Businesses and many
Village residents donated money, time and
items needed for the benefit walk. Mean-
while, Tara had to endure numerous tests,
IVs, tubes, a blood transfusion, discomfort
from the growing tumors pressing against
her lungs, chemotherapy, and being told she
would lose her hair. But she could be seen at
the benefit in her hot pink hat happily weav-
ing between adults to chase after her little
friends, frowning only when she was inter-
rupted to pose for yet another photograph.
Tara, who is one of a set of triplets, has
many months of chemotherapy, followed by
surgery and radiation ahead of her. Scott is
able to commute between Colorado and
Wisconsin at two-week intervals, but Village
Tara Uselding (middle) and friendsElyse Reinbacher and Sam Cooper pose for a photo during the
benefit walk event held for her on May 22.
residents have stepped in to offer help and
support so mom and dad can focus on help-
ing Tara get well enough to make the move
to Colorado along with siblings Dru and
Dayne, 5, Cameron, 9, and Ty, 8.
The team of organizers led by Kerri
Roeder include Maureen Brunner-Hun-
sucker, Gena Gebler, Suzie Barrock, Jaimie
Kurtz, Jerry Baird (and crew), Kayla Tru-
man, Amy Zufelt, Ken Anderson, Alvida
Groom, Rich Uselding.

Message from the Useldings:
Words cannot express our gratitude to
all of you who have sacrificed your per-
sonal time and resources to put together
this benefit for our daughter, Tara. It was
an incredible experience for us to see and
feel the love and support of this community,
and a true joy to watch Tara have such a
great time!
We would like to thank everyone who
played a role in making this event such a
huge success, from our dear friends who
planned and coordinated every last detail,
the volunteers who worked tirelessly at the
benefit, the vendors who donated food, the
individuals and companies who donated
wonderful items for the raffle and bake
sale, and everybody who came to partici-
pate and support us during this difficult
We are also incredibly grateful to every-
one who has reached out to us in so many
different ways. We have had meals deliv-
ered to our home, our dog walked, errands
run, the fire department cutting our grass
when Scott is away, and great friends help-
ing to take care of our other kids while we
tend to Tara’s health. It is because of all of
you that the weight on our shoulders is
lighter, and we are able to focus more of
our attention to Tara and her brothers and
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank
you all!

New kids
pool opens
June 16
Construction of the new Kohler kids pool
is moving along as scheduled and Recre-
ation Director, Susie Wandschneider said the
pool will open June 16, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.
following a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The new pool, which will have a zero
depth entrance and water feature, will re-
place the old pool, which was more than 60
years old and had to be shut down last sum-
mer because the pumps were not working
correctly and repairs were too expensive.
The old pool also was not code compliant.
Village Board members felt the kids pool
is one of the important amenities that makes
Kohler a desirable community for attracting
new families to the Village.

The second concert in
the Village Concert Se-
ries, presented by the
Village of Kohler and
Destination Kohler, is
scheduled for Wednes-
day, June 17th, at
7:30PM in the Ravine
Park Bowl. Featured is “The Mr. Lucky
Syndicate” whose horn-powered sound elec-
trifies the audience with rhythm & blues,
swing, Latin and even some ballroom dance
styles. You’ll find pop tunes that really
swing, and classic tunes that warm the night
like fine cognac. Bring your blanket and
lawn chairs for an evening that promises
something for everyone and will create a
memorable summer experience. Conces-
sions will be available beginning at 6:30PM.
Brats, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the
cob, cotton candy and beverages will be of-
fered for your enjoyment. I hope to see
everyone there!
At its May 11th monthly board meeting,
the Kohler Village Board was presented with
an opportunity to air-condition the Memorial
Hall Theatre. A requirement for the PGA
Service Award Ceremony is that the event be
held in an air-conditioned facility. Rather
than lose this tremendous opportunity to host
this star-studded event to a Milwaukee loca-
tion, which will have an audience of 900 to
1000 people, it was unanimous with the Vil-
lage Board to move forward with installing
air-conditioning in the Memorial Hall The-
atre. Noteworthy past recipients of the PGA
Service Award include George Bush and
Bob Hope.
The funding for this project, which is
$139K, will be shared in by the PGA, the
From the Village Board President . . .
Kohler Company and the Village of Kohler.
The PGA has offered to fund $15K of this
project. The balance of the cost for this proj-
ect will be evenly split between the Kohler
Company and the Village of Kohler. Know-
ing that this project was not budgeted for in
the Village’s 2010 Budget, the Kohler Com-
pany has generously offered to front the vil-
lage’s portion which is 62K, and offer 0%
financing for five years, with payment com-
mencing in 2011. This is a win-win scenario
for the Village of Kohler, Kohler Company
and Kohler Schools. All three entities will
benefit from this upgrade to the theatre. The
village’s portion is close to the amount the
Kohler Village Board approved several
years ago when we were considering split-
ting the cost for air-conditioning of the the-
atre equally between the Village of Kohler,
Kohler Company and Kohler Schools. The
project will be completed in time for the
PGA Service Award Ceremony and the
Men’s PGA Tournament, August 9-15.
The ordinance regulating the number of
dogs and cats a village resident may have re-
siding at their property has recently been up-
dated. The update to this ordinance allows
for an additional dog or cat, with the consent
of the adjacent homeowners, and an appli-
cation for a variance to the Village of
Kohler. The Kohler Village Board believes
this change is responsive to the wants of pet
owners while respecting the rights of their
surrounding neighbors. A homeowner’s con-
sent and request for variance form is being
developed and will be available soon in the
Kohler Village Hall.
Until next time……

Hello Village Residents:
I would first like to say “Thank You” to
all who supported our Annual Brat Fry.
With your support, we had one of the best
events ever, taking in a terrific amount of
money that will enhance our community’s
fire protection and rescue services. And to
those who put money in the boot for Tara,
I’m sure the Uselding family appreciates
your thoughtfulness.
I would also like to say thank you to all
the members, spouses and other friends for
the great selection of baked goods we re-
ceived this year and for all the hours of hard
work put in on the day of the fry. The family
support we receive every year is the back-
bone of this effort and a simple thank you
can’t express my gratitude.
Also, I extend a very special thank you to
the Mascipinto Family for the time they do-
nated to enhance our brat fry with their
lovely music. It was a special treat that was
enjoyed by all. Thank you Tony, Bonnie and
Lastly, I would like to thank the member-
ship of the Kohler Fire Department for the
hard work you all put in. It’s never easy but
you made this year’s fry a hugely successful
one and I have high hopes for next year.
I hope to see you all there again, enjoying
the food and camaraderie. We truly have
one of the best communities around. Thank
you, Kohler.
Thank you for
supporting your fire

New website promotes
county’s economic
development resources
and opportunities
The newly formed Sheboygan County
Economic Development Corporation
(SCEDC) recently launched a website that
will connect a worldwide audience of corpo-
rate investors and entrepreneurs to the
county’s available economic resources. The
new website, at,
provides convenient, around-the-clock ac-
cess to information regarding financial re-
sources, workforce statistics, available sites
and buildings, business and industrial parks,
entrepreneur resources, and municipal pro-
files. “The new website will serve as our per-
manent online platform for information,
communications, and promotions. We will
highlight Sheboygan County’s attributes to
the world, promote resources to retain local
companies, and attract new investment to the
county,” said SCEDC Executive Director
Patrick Drinan. “A vast majority of research
regarding corporate investment decisions is
conducted online, and the SCEDC is now an
active player in the business retention, ex-
pansion, and relocation game.”
The new website, designed by Jon Rost
Brand Development in Sheboygan, gives
local and international investors instant,
query-based access to data for available sites
(like Kohler’s Industrial Park) that normally
required a call or visit county offices during
working hours, and a waiting period while
county employees searched for and retrieved
the requested information. “The website
serves as a 24/7 option for accessing infor-
mation and will allow staff to focus efforts
on assisting local businesses and driving job
creation,” said SCEDC Chairman Gary Dul-
mes. “We want to make sure our business
community members are aware of the re-
sources available to them, and that the
SCEDC is playing an integral part in retain-
ing, expanding, and attracting investment
throughout the county,” he added.

If you are not comfortable in a pool, but would like to be able
to go in the water with your children, your grandchildren, or just
to cool off on a warm summer day, this class may be for you.
Limited participation enables the nervous swimmer to try out
the pool without splashing, getting you head wet, feeling awk-
ward or embarrassed. The goal of the class is to provide individu-
als with skills to successfully get from one side of the pool to the
other without feeling anxious.
A more advanced goal could be to provide additional skills for
non-swimmers. Putting your face in the water, blowing bubbles,
opening your eyes under water, kicking using a board/noodle.
Learn just how buoyant the body is. Bounce you way to safety
from 4 ft of water. Knowing what you should do if you get out
too deep is a significant confidence builder. Having a chance to
practice will improve your skills in the water.

Fourth Grade Students
Connect to the Past with
the Smithsonian
Carolyn Eickholt’s fourth-grade class re-
cently discovered that you don’t always need
to visit a museum to learn how art can con-
nect us to the past. Just a few blocks away
from school in the lobby of the General Of-
fice building at Kohler Co., artist Arthur
Covey painted numerous larger-than-life
size murals that were completed in 1925.
When parent Lisa Madeira discovered
that these works are documented in archives
of the Smithsonian Institution, it spawned an
idea for a project to connect the students
with our past, and with the Smithsonian, via
the new Distance Learning Lab.
First the students viewed the murals at
Kohler Co. and learned about how they re-
flect the rise of industry and inventions in
the early part of the 20th century. They stud-
ied how the images of the foundry workers
have become symbolic “heroes” for both the
company and the community. Then, back at
Kohler School in the Distance Learning Lab,
an Educator from the Smithsonian American
Art Museum continued the conversation
with the fourth graders by showing works
from the museum’s collection that use sym-
bols to communicate ideas about our na-
tional identity and collective American
experience. Using these images as inspira-
tion and incorporating concepts from their
Social Studies curriculum, the students then
created their own collaborative class mural.
Like a quilt, the images in this colorful
work of art weave together symbols that rep-
resent our Nation and celebrate the diverse
country in which we live. The culmination
of the multiple-visit program included one
more visit to the Distance Learning Lab
where the students again connected to the
Smithsonian and viewed majestic landscape
paintings in a thematic lesson called “Lure
of the West.” Carolyn Eickholt commented,
“What an opportunity for us – we were
transported back in time through art, tech-
nology and our imaginations.
This private presentation was so inspiring
and gave such a different insight into a sim-
pler time and way of communicating. As the
title suggests, these paintings were used to
lure early settlers westward. The message
was the same for our class as we can imag-
ine it was for the pioneers. We were ready to
saddle –up!” The fourth-grade collaborative
mural will be on display outside Mrs. Eick-
holt’s classroom through the last day of
school, June 10th, and when school resumes
in September.
High school Engineering Club
project takes flight
By guest writer Julia Hart
Mr. DeBruin had big ideas when
he started Kohler High School’s first
Engineering Club for the 2009/2010
school year. Those big ideas took
flight on May 15 at Road America
with the unveiling of a super-sized
charcoal grill in the shape of a B-17
Bomber plane designed, manufac-
tured and built in collaboration with
Curt G. Joa, partners with Project
Grill and 17 members of the first
year’s Engineering club.
“We had so many student’s show
up for our first meeting of our Engi-
neering Club that I had to limit it to
Sophomores and up,” said Mr. De-
Bruin, instructor of Technology Ed-
Project G.R.I.L.L. is a community
program started four years ago to
highlight local, large manufacturers.
“GRILL” stands for “Growing in
Readiness In Learning and Leading”
and is designed to challenge high
school students to learn more about
the advanced skills needed in manu-
facturing. Six area high schools
were paired up with six local manu-
factures, including Curt G. Joa, JL
French, Sargento, Vollrath, John-
sonville and Masters Gallery and
given the task of designing and
building a charcoal grill.
Said Mr. DeBruin, “This project
teaches more than traditional engi-
neering and design class. The under-
standing of working parts and hands
on experience in building is invalu-
able.” Students got the opportunity to
learn and explore a new environ-
ment, use advanced equipment and
make industry connections. Corpo-
rate sponsors, who funded the proj-
ect, mentored students and enhanced
their knowledge about their business
and manufacturing careers. Students,
working in teams with their corpo-
rate partners, met regularly for 30
weeks on project management, de-
sign, fabrication, finishing, quality
control and testing. In the end, the
grills had to pass one test: perfectly
grill 24 brats within one hour.
Kohler School was up to the chal-
The Kohler B-17 Bomber grill
was inspired by the school’s mascot
and at the unveiling of all the grills
on May 15 at Road America, was
dedicated to all American Veterans.
Mr. Art Winkler, a WWII Veteran
and family friend of sophomore
Jacob Hart, had been invited to sev-
eral Project Grill meetings and
shared his first hand knowledge of
being a gunner in a B-17 Bomber for
33 missions during WWII. Mr. Win-
kler brought along scale drawings of
planes and details that were useful on
the planning and painting of the fin-
ished grill. Mr. Winkler was an inspi-
ration to the students and Joa
employees, who put his birth date as
the call-numbers on the tail of the
plane. The students called their plane
the Midnight Marauder. It features
two working charcoal grills, one on
each wing. The fuselage serves a
double purpose as well. It has two
segments that serve as coolers and a
dry storage area for charcoal and
lighter fluid. The plane is completely
street legal and has a hitch on the
back to attach to any normal trailer
hitch on a truck.
Junior Mary Molepske, who put
together most of the drawings using
CAD (computer assisted drawing)
said Project Grill was”a life changing
experience. Before, I thought I
wanted to go into engineering but
wasn’t sure, now I’m 100% sure that
I want to be a mechanical engineer.”
Said Molepske, “I learned so much
getting to work with the profession-
als (at Joa) doing stuff that I wouldn’t
be doing in a school environment.”
Organizations that are interested in
renting the Kohler Bomber Grill can
contact Mr. DeBruin for more infor-
Douwe Vander Schaaf and Adam Kellner watch WWII veteran Art Winkler christen the grill with its
inaugural lighting.

teachers working in schools today.
In a profile of Hilke in the Lakeland Col-
lege Mirror, she said, “I love working with
future teachers. They are so enthusiastic and
eager to learn about the teaching profession.
And I am so filled with pride as I watch their
skills when working with children and young
She chaired Lakeland’s Curriculum Com-
mittee and served on the Faculty Develop-

served as the faculty representative to the
Lakeland Board of Trustees.
She served as president of the Wisconsin
Association of Colleges of Teacher Educa-
tion, the Wisconsin Independent Colleges for
Teacher Education, the Interlake Reading
Association and the Sheboygan chapter of
the Phi Delta Kappa. In 1989 she was named

Association and Sheboygan Theatre Com-
pany boards, a teacher for Junior Achieve-
ment and a volunteer with Theatre for Young
Audiences and at the John Michael Kohler

study in China, Japan and Yugoslavia.
Hilke earned a bachelor’s degree in ele-
mentary education from the University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire, a master of education
from Marquette University and a doctorate
in urban education from the University of
She taught first and second grade in She-

Junior Achievement
and Our City
Sheboygan, WI – During one of the Junior
Achievement classes at Kohler Elementary
School, third graders in Mrs. Roeber’s class
learned about our city. They program, “JA
Our City”, was divided into five lessons: In-
side Cities; Building a City; Dining Out;
Making Headlines; and You can Bank on It.
Junior Achievement volunteer, Laura Con-
klin, Vice President of Business Consulting
at ACUITY, helped students produce a news-
paper during the Making Headlines portion
of the curriculum. Pictured is Mrs. Roeber
and her class showing off the newspaper
they created.

Bethany Lutheran Church in Kohler has
teamed up with St. Paul Lutheran Church
in Sheboygan Falls to bring SportsLife
Camps to Kohler. The week-long camp is a
summer program that helps churches de-
velop children’s faith through energetic
sports and multi-sensory arts programs. It
will take place July 26 - 29 from 5:30 - 8:30
p.m. and is for children entering 1st through
5th grade the fall of 2010.
The camp promises to provide three
hours packed full of “outrageous fun” and
Bible-based learning through high-energy
activities and sports, singing, obstacle
courses, break dancing, videos and more.
The camp differentiates itself from the
traditional Vacation Bible School by allow-
ing each camper to customize the camp ex-
perience by choosing a preferred sport or
art, and developing real skills in those cho-
sen areas through innovative, quality pro-
gramming. The camp brings its own
equipment and professional, devout staff.
The staff also works with local church vol-
unteers to reach out to campers with faith-
based messages.
The camp will again be held at Bethany
Lutheran Church, located at 222 Church
Street in Kohler and campers will have ac-
cess to the Kohler School basketball courts
and soccer field for the week.
The cost of the camp is free. Registra-
forms as well as medical release forms can
be found at either Bethany or St. Paul
Churches or online at: Space

Be a Leak Seeker: Water bill higher than
usual? Check all faucets for leaks. Just a
slow drip can waste 15-29 gallons per day.
Put a drop of food coloring in the toilet
tank to see if it leaks into the bowl. Based
on experience, it is found that leaking toi-
lets are the reason for unusual water usage
90% of the time. If you believe this is the
cause you may contact our department and
our crew can detect leaks with a special lis-
tening device.
Garage Sale Signs: One temporary
“garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be
permitted on each lot or parcel. Signs lo-
cated on public property will be removed

dents at Kohler Elementary School. Instead
of their regular classes, students took part in
workshops presented by professionals from
within the community. The event was full of
educational options for students of each
grade level ranging from braille to Zumba,
guitar and geocaching. “The day provides
students with an opportunity to explore
classes they may not otherwise had been
given a chance to try,” said Suzanne Fink,
the event organizer.

Rediscover Cucina: Kohler
restaurant adds flare and flame
Cucina features a new Italian menu with wood-fire grilled steaks, a fresh
seafood bar and an unforgettable setting and new look
The Kitchens of Kohler unveils an Italian
steakhouse experience at Cucina Italian Restau-
rant with wood-fire grilled steaks, a fresh
seafood bar and an unforgettable setting and
new look. Cucina is celebrating its 20th an-
niversary with a chef-inspired menu that incor-
porates traditional Italian influences and the
flavor accents from the new wood-fired grill.
The interior design of the restaurant is as haute
as the flames of the new grill. Enhancing the
dining options in the Village of Kohler, Cucina
serves as a restaurant destination for a relaxed
casual dining experience in a bold setting.
The menu now offers entrees from the Wood
Fire Grill located in the kitchen that is fired
with a trilogy of woods – Oak, Ash and Maple.
Entrée selections include 21-day aged Black
Angus Tenderloin and Apple Cider-Brined Dou-
ble Bone Pork Chop hand-rubbed from The
Good Earth and Coldwater Atlantic Salmon and
Line Caught Block Island Swordfish from The
Open Sea using sustainable practices. True to a
steakhouse concept, diners select a salse (sauce)
to accompany the protein and have the option to
add hearty verdure per la tavola (vegetables for
the table).
“The new wood fire grill uses the high heat
temperature from the wood to add a char-
smoked flavor to the protein,” said Kohler Co.
Director of Culinary Arts Ulrich Koberstein.
“The pairing of three woods adds a flavor
punch and keeps the moisture level high creat-
ing an unmatched combination of flavor and
The menu offers classic Italian cuisine from
the good earth and open sea. Careful considera-
tion was taken to keep long-standing favorite
traditional menu items on the Cucina menu in-
cluding the Calamari Fritti and Capellini Pasta
while highlighting new offerings to create an
Italian steakhouse-style dining experience.
In addition to the wood fire grill entrees the
menu includes antipasti (appetizers), zuppa e
insalata (soup and salad), barra di greggio (raw
bar), pasta and dolci (dessert).
A chef-designed Menu Degustazione (tast-
ing menu) is featured with a four-course dinner
that can be enhanced by electing the sommelier-
paired wines with each course.
In line with the focus of healthy dining op-
tions at all of The Kitchens of Kohler Restau-
rants, the Cucina menu notes Lean Serving
selections that are less than 250 calories and
150 mg of sodium with great texture and taste.
Cucina now offers Sheboygan County’s only
raw bar – Barra Di Greggio – featuring fresh
seafood flown in daily from the Atlantic and Pa-
cific Oceans. Gulf Shrimp, Massachusetts Well-
fleet Oysters, Long Island Blue Point Oysters
and Florida Stone Crab Claws are featured on
the raw bar.
The wine list is as expansive as the views of

Fame include:
= Three patented golf clubs he designed in-

Wood Lake. Participating in the resort’s wine
program, Cucina offers wine selections rated 88
points and above on the Robert Parker Wine
Advocate or Wine Spectator ranking. No matter
the price point for a glass or bottle of wine,
guests are assured to have delightful wines. In
addition, servers are knowledgeable in the
wines from the regions of Italy to offer perfect
pairings for each menu selection.
Guests are encouraged to try the somme-

Completely redesigned from the inside and
out, the décor of the dining establishment is an
eclectic mix of rich draperies adorned with siz-
able tassels, haphazardly painted stucco walls
decorated with art pieces from the Kohler Co.
Arts/Industry program, dark wood accents and a
glass chandelier.
“The glass chandelier is the focal point of
the restaurant that will certainly offer a conver-
sation starter for diners,” said Jack Reese,
Kohler Co. Interior Designer. “This piece was
the ‘find of a lifetime’ and sets the stage for a
restaurant design full of flare.”
Purchased at a California artist auction, the
art piece appears as if a hot flame was put to the
fixture and that each piece of the chandelier is
perpetually melting. The purple hue of this
glass lighting fixture is eye-catching and is ac-
cented by a hand-painted wrought iron caging
in the original restaurant’s dome ceiling painted
with airy clouds.
The expansive views of Wood Lake can be
enjoyed throughout the establishment as a result
of opening the space by removing walls and the
hostess station wine-cellar backdrop.
