New construction or remodeling
plans in your future?
Be sure to allow time for approval process
Village property owners are advised that
building permits from the Village of Kohler
are required for construction projects that
include, but are not limited to, home remod-
eling, garages and sheds, signs, fences, and
satellite dishes. The Village Plan
Commission approves building permits for
all such projects, as well as for new home
construction and zoning changes.
Plan Commission meetings are held the
first Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at
the Village Hall. Since most projects are
time-sensitive, it is important for applicants
to note that all plans must be submitted by
Wednesday of the week prior to the meeting
date to be included on the Plan Commission
agenda for the upcoming meeting. Contact
the Village Clerk/Treasurer for more infor-
mation at (920) 459-3873.
In addition to the requirements listed
above, which apply to all property owners
within the Kohler Village limits, most prop-
erties within the Village are also subject to
deed restrictions and design guidelines
administered by Kohler Co. If this is the
case for a particular property, the property
owner will be asked by the Village Plan
Commission to receive approval from
Kohler Co. for all plans prior to final
approval by the Plan Commission.
Property owners can find out whether
their property is subject to Kohler Co.
review by examining their deed language
regarding home modifications. Property
owners who do not have a copy of their
deed on hand can obtain one from the
Sheboygan County Register of Deeds
Office, 518 New York Avenue, Sheboygan.
In most cases, the deed language will
require that Kohler Co. approve plans for
modification that change the exterior of the
home or footprints of buildings. Changes to
driveways and the removal of trees will also
likely be covered.
Kohler High Commencement will be June 10
According to Kohler Co., the following
items should be submitted for review:
1. Site plan of existing and proposed. This
is required if changes are proposed to
the footprint of a home, driveway loca-
tion or removal of trees, or if adding an
accessory building, fence, or building
addition. The site plan must indicate the
first floor elevation of building addi-
tions, grades, dimensions to property
lines, and dimension to other structures
on the property.
2. Pictures of areas of the home being
impacted.
3. If applicable, blueprints of proposed
changes.
4. If the proposed changes involve chang-
ing the outside material of a home, or
adding a new material, samples of the
material should be submitted.
5. Homeowner contact information, includ-
ing name, phone number, address of
property for modification, and address
for owner communication.
Plans should be submitted to:
Jamie Walters
President-Hospitality and Real Estate Group
Mail Stop 000

An applicant will receive a formal writ-
ten response to his or her request after
review by Kohler Co. A copy of the
response letter will also be sent to the
Village of Kohler Public Works
Superintendent. Applicants are advised to
allow up to 60 days for the Kohler Co.

Garbage collection
and yard waste
Spring/summer schedule and guidelines
Friday garbage collection to resume
In addition to the regular Tuesday
garbage collection, Friday collections of
garbage only will begin again on May 4 and
end September 28, according to Public
Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof.
Residents are asked to have garbage to the
curb by 7:00 am. Garbage should be tied
and in clear bags.
Recyclables go out with Tuesday’s
garbage
Plastic, glass, and aluminum and steel
cans should be placed in the Village’s desig-
nated blue recycling bins and placed out
with garbage on Tuesdays. Cardboard,
newspapers and magazines should be bun-
dled or put in paper bags next to the recy-
cling bin. Residents in need of a recycling
bin should contact the Public Works
Department at 459-3881.
Yard waste pickup guidelines
Yard waste should also be placed out on
Tuesdays along with garbage and recy-
clables. The yard waste must be placed in
solid containers (no plastic bags allowed),
and brush should be neatly piled in five-foot
lengths. Residents are also asked to not rake
spring yard waste such as grass, leaves or
debris into the street. Raking of leaves into
the street is only allowed during the desig-
nated fall leaf collection program.
Industrial site available for yard waste
Larry's Hauling now has an industrial
site for yard waste only located in the
Sheboygan Falls Industrial Park at 113A
Balsam Road. Dumpsters are located
between the Hagemeir Construction and
New Dawn buildings. Residents may dump
all materials into the dumpsters and should
remember to take any containers back with
them.
Time to remove
Christmas wreaths
from cemetery!
April showers came in the form of snow
showers and temperatures more befitting of
Christmas, but spring has finally sprung in
earnest and the Department of Public
Works asks that all Christmas wreaths be
removed from the cemetery by May 11.
Garage sale sign
guidelines
Village residents should be aware that
Village ordinances permit the placement of
only one temporary “garage sale” or “for
sale” sign on each private lot or parcel.
Placement of signs on public property is not
permitted, and those signs will be removed
by the Public Works Department or Police
Department.

Elkhart Lake, Wis., April 12, 2007 -
Road America has announced the creation
of its Road America Motorcycle School.
The Road America Motorcycle School is
endorsed by the Motorcycle Safety
Foundation (MSF) and the Wisconsin
Department of Transportation (WisDOT).
Successful completion of the school's basic
rider course enables participants to obtain a
Class M endorsement on their driver's
license from the WisDOT.
Two MSF-designed courses will be
offered by Road America: the Basic Rider
Course (BRC) and the Experienced Rider
Course (ERC). The BRC consists of 16
hours of combined classroom and practical
riding instruction. Participants in this
course learn basic riding techniques along
with important safety skills to minimize the
risks of motorcycling. Participants will use
Suzuki GZ250s which are supplied by Road
America. The course fee is $250.00. The
ERC is for riders looking to sharpen and
build on the skills learned in the BRC. It
consists of one hour of classroom and five
hours of practical instruction. Riders must
use their own motorcycles. The course fee
is $125.00. Road America provides the
instruction for both courses in its con-
trolled, off-street environment. The courses
are offered April through November. Acur-
rent schedule of courses is available by call-

Safety Administration (NHTSA), state gov-
ernments, the military and other organiza-
tions to improve motorcyclist education,
training and operator licensing.
Located between Green Bay and

America is a 628-acre, year-round motor-
sports facility entering its 52nd race season.
In addition to major race events, Road

Kohler Executives Host Junior
Achievement Students
“If you haven’t made any mistakes,
you're probably not doing something worth-
while,” Karl Lubke of Kohler Co. shared
with students from Sheboygan Falls High
School last Tuesday when they met with six
senior executives at Kohler. The students
are participating in the Junior Achievement
Company program this semester in their
Business Management class with Mr. Graig
Stone. The JA Company program allows
students to start and run their own company
for a semester. As part of their organization-
al process, students must create bylaws,
apply for positions in one of five depart-
ments, and elect a company CEO.
Sheboygan Falls students came up with the
company name, Innovation Unlimited,
which they feel captures their creative abil-
ities.
JAcompany program volunteers Nathan
Matson and Rohit Thali, both Kohler asso-
ciates, have been working with the class
since February. “It's important for kids to
get a real world perspective on what they
are doing in school,” Matson explained,
“What I like about the JA program is that
the kids have ownership in the entire com-
pany process. It’s really a unique opportu-
nity.”
Matson and Thali arranged for the stu-
dents to meet with Ron Pace, President of
Plumbing Americas, Laura Kohler, Vice
President of Human Resources, Cynthia
Bachmann, Vice President of Engineering,
Gordon Wuthrich, Director of Marketing,
Jeff Cheney, Vice President of Finance, and
Karl Lubke, Director of Operations -
Plastics. Students came prepared with
questions about market research, motivat-
ing employees, product development, and
what a “normal” day might look like for
each executive. “We got to hear about the
broad spectrum of Kohler, not just the spe-
cific stuff,” said Cody Bohn, an 11th grade
student at Sheboygan Falls High School.
Ashley Lorge, President of Innovation
Unlimited recalled that “they told us that
communication and problem solving are
huge, and we have to listen to our target
consumer, not just what we think might
sell.”
The purpose of the visit was for the stu-
dents to hear first-hand what it takes to be
in leadership positions. Pace shared with
the students that he had been involved with
the JA Company program when he was in
high school and learned some valuable les-
sons. “At the time, our product orders ran
much higher than we thought and we ran
out of stock quickly. As the VP of
Production, I had to figure out how to fill
orders quickly.”
“It was very informative,” said Ashley
Nelson, VP of Human Resources in
Innovation Unlimited, “It was really neat to
hear all the different aspects of business.”
Maghan Kuehl, a member of Nelson's
human resource team added that “we really
appreciated the effort that [the executives]
made.”

Achievement, contact Meg Roman at 458-

Junior Achievement Board of
Directors meet at Kohler
The Sheboygan County Junior
Achievement Board of Directors held their
annual meeting at the Kohler Public
Schools on Wednesday, April 11th. “It was
exciting to have an impressive group of
community leaders in our school environ-
ment,” said Kohler Elementary Dean of
Students Susan Jaberg.
The J.A. Board received presentations
from various Kohler students. Ann Marie

Feline Lifeline Program
to begin at SCHS
Are you looking for that PURRRRFECT
feline friend? In an effort to find as many
homes possible for our cats, the Sheboygan
County Humane Society is throwing a
Feline Lifeline to our cats over eight
months old and that have been at the shelter
for more than one month. This lifeline is a
reduced adoption fee of $25.00, which
includes a veterinary exam, spay or neuter,
a microchip with registration, all vaccina-
tions and testing for FIV and Feline
Leukemia. Also, our senior cats (over 5
years old) are being adopted for just $15.00.
This is a savings on our regular adoption
fees of $20-$60.00 and a value of over
$300.00! All adopters must be qualified
and should consider the fact that cats can
live 15-20 years or longer and you should
plan on annual costs of approximately
$500.00 for food, litter, and veterinary care.
We hope that you will opt to adopt! For
more information, call (920) 458-2012 or
come visit us at 3107 N. 20th Street. Our
hours are: Mon., Wed. & Fri. from Noon to
4:30 p.m., Tues. and Thurs. from Noon to
6:30 p.m. and Sat. from Noon to 4 p.m..

Global Learning and
Observations to Benefit the
Environment
Written by the 8th grade GLOBE Team
GLOBE (Global Learning and
Observations to Benefit the Environment)
is when students collect environmental data
and interact with the scientific community.
Kids around the world collect and enter
data like the Kohler GLOBE members do.
GLOBE supports students, teachers, and
scientists as they investigate the Earth sys-
tem while working with NASA (National
Air and Space Administration), NOAA
(National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Adminstration), and the U.S. Department of
State. It is the first and only international
environmental monitoring program that
involves students around the world.
Who participates in GLOBE? Students
in over 109 countries participate in the
GLOBE Program. There are more than
36,000 GLOBE-trained teachers represent-
ing 19,000 schools around the world.
Students enter about 16 million measure-
ments to the GLOBE database for use in
their science projects and for scientists’ use.
GLOBE brings together students, teachers,
and scientists through learning and
research.
The team of eighth graders collects
atmospheric data daily while the juniors
and seniors in College Prep. Chemistry,
Advanced Honors Biology, and Physics,
collect hydrology data during the fall and
spring. Some of the atmospheric protocols
include: cloud type, water vapor, relative
humidity, precipitation measurement and
pH, current, maximum, and minimum tem-
perature, and more. Each week we enter the
data into the international GLOBE website
database.
The atmospheric data that is collected
by participants in the GLOBE Program is
used by scientists to help them in their
research. It is important because we need to
know what is going on in our atmosphere so
that we can predict the weather and learn
more about our Earth. When we know
more about our atmosphere and how it
changes throughout time, we can find ways
to protect, monitor, and understand our
atmosphere.
Students involved in the GLOBE
Program this year are: Maren Bogard,
Kaitlin Esche, Meghan Falconer, Emma
Fulop, Carissa Gartman, Lauren Gray,
Danielle Hart, Lauren Henderson, Brenna
Hogan, Christine Leffel, Alex Mauer, Mary
Molepske, Austin Neerhof, Tori Porter,
Kara Saemann, and Michaela Tures.
Biotechnology and
Molecular Biology
Biology students at Kohler High School
have recently completed the biotechnology
component of the biology curriculum.
Biotechnology is the technology of using
living things to create useful products.
Biotechnology has historically been used in
the making of bread, wine, soap, the treat-
ment of waste, and the production of
cheese. Selective breeding of agricultural
animals and selective practices in crop
planting have occurred for hundreds of
years. Biotechnology has changed due to
the advancements of technologies such as
computers and software in the 1970’s to
include the development of human insulin
for the treatment of diabetes, human growth
hormone for children, and identification of
specific genes responsible for genetic disor-
ders, and in some cases treatment for those
disorders.
Biology students learn and then use the
steps necessary to move a gene from one
organism to another. The process involves
the isolation of plasmid DNA, using
endonuclease restriction enzymes to cut
DNAat specific sites in the DNAsequence,
ligation of the plasmid fragments, transfor-
mation of bacteria, preparation and casting
of agarous gel, electrophoresis of restriction
enzyme digested DNA, staining, viewing,
and photographing the gel, and learning the
process by which scientists determine DNA
fragment size. Ask any biology student for
more information on this experiment. They
will be happy to share details of their suc-
cessful experience!

You try to do a few pushups and discover that certain body parts refuse to leave the

Your children look through your wedding album and want to know who mom's first

You get winded just saying the words “10 kilometer run”.
You come to the conclusion that if God really wanted you to touch your toes each
morning He would have put them somewhere around your knees.
You analyze your body honestly and decide what you should develop first is your
sense of humor.

On April 17th, the State
Assembly took up and
passed Assembly Joint
Resolution 41, designating
April as Donate Life Month
in Wisconsin. Every April
is, also, National Donate
Life Month. As a cospon-
sor of the Wisconsin reso-
lution, I wanted to take this
week's column to discuss
the importance of becom-
ing an organ donor and
encourage family discussion on this
issue.
AJR 41 was introduced this ses-
sion by Representative Joan
Balweg (R-Markesan). In her
cosponsorship memo and in her
floor speech, Representative
Balweg noted that she had been
inspired to author the resolution fol-
lowing the sudden death of a
nephew. When the time had come,
the young man's parents agreed to
"donate life" and, weeks later,
learned that eight of his organs were
successfully transplanted. Their
tragedy had given hope to others.
Unfortunately, due the nature of
the situation, families need to make
the decision about organ donation
at, what is likely, one of the most dif-
ficult and painful times in their lives.
In that light, I encourage families to
talk about the issue…before they
actually need to make such a deci-
sion.
Today, there are over 1,500
Wisconsinites on the list of people
waiting for an organ transplant.
Nationally, over 95,000 people are
awaiting organ donations. And,
every 13 minutes, another name is
added to that list.
The reality is that organ donation
saves lives! But, unfortunately, due
to a shortage of donated organs,
each day between 17 and 19 people
die waiting on that list.
That's the bad news. But the
good news is that we can do some-
thing to change that. And what we
can do to help is as easy as signing
your name…. literally. Wisconsin's
anatomical gift law provides us the
ability to become an organ donor on
our state's driver's license or identifi-
cation card.
To indicate you would like to
become an organ donor simply
mark "yes" to the organ donor ques-
tion while you are completing an
application for a Wisconsin driver's
license/identification card. Then
sign and date the back of your dri-
ver's license/identification card. You
may specify all or only specific
organs you wish to donate. Also,
remember to discuss your intentions
with your family to ensure your wish-
es are carried out.
Most people, when asked, are in
favor of donating organs, but many
fail to follow through on the steps
above. According to the Department
of Health and Family Services, 49.5
Donate Life
Do you know someone
who currently resides in a
nursing home facility in the
State of Wisconsin? If the
answer is "Yes" you may
want to inform them that
Governor Jim Doyle has pro-
posed to increase the state
tax placed on the bed that
they sleep in by $624 a year.
That's right, under a provi-
sion included in his 2007-09
state budget plan, Governor Doyle
increases the current state tax that is
assessed on every nursing home bed
in the State of Wisconsin by $52 per
month - an unbelievable 69% monthly
increase.
Under the Governor's plan, every
nursing home bed in the state is
assessed this new $127 per month
"bed tax." If the bed is located at a
privately owned facility like the
Sheboygan Senior Community, Pine
Haven or North Ridge Medical &
Rehabilitation Center - it is taxed.
Beds that are located at publicly fund-
ed facilities like Rocky Knoll, the
Manitowoc Health Care Center and
the Calumet County Homestead are
also taxed. Even the 841 beds that
are located at our state's two
Veterans' Nursing Homes are
assessed this monthly tax.
It doesn't even make a difference if
the bed is occupied or not occupied,
under the Governor's plan - it is taxed!
For beds that are occupied by individ-
uals who privately pay for their nurs-
ing home care, this new tax will be
added on to their monthly bill. For
beds that are occupied by individuals
who receive taxpayer support, like
Medicare/Medicaid, to cover their
nursing home costs, this new tax will
also have to be paid for by taxpayers.
The tax on unoccupied beds will be
passed on to all residents that occupy
beds, thus, further increasing long-
term health care costs.
As your State Senator and as a cit-
izen, I have never understood why we
Taxing Nursing Home Beds??
Updates From Our State Representatives
percent of people in
Sheboygan County have
indicated on their driver's
license/identification card
that they would like to be an
organ donor. While this num-
ber is higher than the State of
Wisconsin average, there is
still room for improvement.
If you are one of the
many people who have left
the organ donation question
blank on your driver's
license/identification card and wish to
donate your organs, there are steps
you can take today to change that.
Simply sign and date the back of your
driver's license/identification card and
indicate the specific organs you wish to
donate. That's it!!
To help increase the amount of
organ donations in Wisconsin, a cou-
ple of legislative proposals have been
introduced on that issue.
Senate Bill 62 was introduced by
Senator Carol Roessler in February.
The bill will allow a person to request
his/her organs to be donated (or not to
be donated) as part of their living will.
Following its introduction, SB 62 was
referred to the Senate Committee on
Health and Human Services for review.
At this time, no further action has been
taken on the bill.
In the Assembly, legislation was
introduced by Representative Tony
Staskunas to ensure that anatomical
gift decisions are honored. The bill,
Assembly Bill 240, would prohibit oth-
ers, including a donor's family, from
refusing to honor the donor's wish to
donate their organs. Upon its introduc-
tion, AB 240 was referred to the
Assembly Committee on Judiciary and
Ethics for review. At this time, it
appears that no action has been taken
on the bill.
You can find additional information
on organ donation on the Wisconsin
Heath and Human Services website,
http://www.dhfs.state.wi.us. On the
website you will be able to view statis-

donation.
Organ donation is a topic that
requires our full participation in order to
make a difference. Clearly there is a
need for more donors in both
Sheboygan County and throughout the
nation. So, please take some time to
think about this issue and to decide if
you want to become an organ donor…
and encourage others to do so, too.
Contact Me:
If you would like to contact me regard-
ing this or any other issue, you may
call my office at 1-888-529-0026 or you
can e-mail me at:
Rep.VanAkkeren@legis.wi.gov. And,

tax nursing home beds.
During the 2005-07 state
budget deliberations, I
worked to eliminate a pro-
posal by Governor Doyle to
increase the bed tax by $43
per month. I was successful
in that effort and was able to
save the nursing home resi-
dents of Wisconsin from
being asked to pay almost
$50 million in new taxes.
The new $52 per month increase is
currently being reviewed and debated
by the legislature along with the entire
$57 billion two-year expenditure plan.
I am, once again, very concerned with
this bed tax increase proposal and
plan to vote against it as a part of the
budget. I would however appreciate
your thoughts on this budget initiative.
When asked in my recent budget sur-
vey whether area residents supported
or opposed the bed tax proposal, 83
percent of respondents said they
oppose such a plan.
Again, your input is appreciated as
I work to make proper decisions on
the pending state budget. To date, the
non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau
has determined that the Governor's
budget would place nearly $3 billion in
new taxes and fees on Wisconsin res-
idents including this increased bed
tax. Over the next couple of weeks, I
will try to focus on and inform you
about a number of the Governor's tax
increase initiatives.
As always, it has been a pleasure
communicating with you. Please
remember to communicate with me
and share your input by calling 888-
295-8750, writing to me at P.O. Box
7882, Madison, WI 53707-7882, or by
e-mailing me at
Sen.Leibham@legis.state.wi.us. You
can also log on to the 9th Senate
District on-line office at www.leibham-
senate.com.
It is an honor representing the resi-
dents of the 9th District in the State
Senate!

Bike Safety Day: The Kohler Police
Department in conjunction with the Village
of Kohler Recreation Department is again
sponsoring the Bike Safety Day on
Saturday June 9
th
at 12:30 pm. The event
is being held at the Village Hall. Licenses
are required and are available for $2.50 for
any bikes with wheels larger than 16”.
Anyone that needs a license can download
the bike license form from www.kohlerpo-
lice.com and have it filled out before you
arrive. There will be forms available the
day of, but it would make that portion go
more quickly. All participants will receive
an inspection of their bike, a free helmet
and a bike accessory. We will also be sup-
plying free soda and chips after the day’s
events.
FEMATraining: As the Village of
Kohler Emergency Management Director,
I was recently sent to attend FEMA train-
ing at Emmitsburg Maryland. The training
was fully funded by the Federal
Government and held at the Emergency
Management Institute. Village President
Tom Leonhardt also attended, as one of the
duties of the Village President is to declare
a State of Emergency when needed. The
flooding of portions of the Village in 1998
would be an example of that. The training
will help the Village if/when it needs to
respond to such situations. Every year the
Village’s Emergency Operations Plan is
updated to assist those responding during
an emergency. Aspects of that plan are:
when and who to call during an emergency
to assist in clean up or special response
teams. Other aspects of the training were
finding ways as a community to lessen the
impact that a disaster may have on your
community by using hazard mitigation
techniques. The Village of Kohler has
already instituted some of the more com-
mon techniques, like having buried
power/communication lines. The Village
will continue to look for ways to improve
on mitigating potential problems.
Are you prepared for an Emergency?
Another aspect of emergency planning for
a community is trying to get the message
out that each family have a plan if an
emergency affects their home. Are you
prepared for a short power outage, or loss
of water pressure? Does your sump pump
have battery backup if you lose power for
several hours? Do you have a kit at home
to provide food and water for three days in
the event of a major disaster? The nation
seems to be getting hit with natural disas-
ters all the time, assistance for large areas
may take time to have power grids
restored or water systems repaired. For
more information on how to prepare your-
self or your home, go to www.kohlerpo-
lice.com and click on our link to the
“Emergency Preparedness” site.
