This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
A public hearing was convened by the
Village of Kohler plan commission on
August 18 for the purpose of gathering
input from the public on the proposed Tax
Incremental District (TID) No. 3. Over 100
interested persons attended the approxi-
mately two-hour meeting held in the Kohler
Memorial Theatre. The meeting began with
a presentation by Michael Harrigan from
Ehlers & Associates, Inc., the consultant
The Board of Education voted unani-
mously at their August 15th meeting to
direct administration to work with the
Village of Kohler Police Department to end
toilet papering of school property. The
Board took into consideration numerous
complaints the administration and Board of
Education received from neighbors con-
cerning the continual mess that blew into
their yards for at least a month after the inci-
dents. They also took into consideration a
newly added activity which involves writ-
ing inappropriate language on the building
and windows using shaving cream and gels,
or spray painting the grass.
Beginning August 16, 2005, the School
District will consider toilet papering school
property a violation of Village trespassing
and vandalism ordinances, which the police
will be contacted to enforce. If toilet paper-
ing occurs, the School District will hire a
firm to immediately clean it up from the
ground and trees and will seek restitution
for the cost from the individuals responsible
Toilet papering school property banned
for the incident.
The Board debated long and hard con-
cerning the pros and cons of this action. In
the end, they felt they had a responsibility

retained by the village to assist with the
financial aspects of the TID. Harrigan
explained the fundamentals of how tax
incremental financing works and showed
some of the financial projections for TID
Harrigan's presentation was followed by
a presentation from Alice Edland, group
vice president, hospitality and real estate for
Kohler Company, the developer associated
with TID No. 3. Edland filled in more
details about the elements of TID No. 3 and
addressed a list of questions and issues that
had recently been brought to her attention
by the plan commission and others.
Plan commission chairman Wes Prange
then invited the public to ask questions or
provide comments. About a dozen village
residents approached the microphone to ask
for more information or voice their opin-
ions. Edland responded to several questions,
assisted occasionally by input from
Harrigan, Village of Kohler public works
superintendent Bruce Neerhof, and Kohler
Public Schools superintendent Jeff Dickert.
After the conclusion of the public hear-
ing, the plan commission voted to table a
decision on the TID No. 3 proposal until its
September 8 meeting, so that its members
would have time to consider the input
received during the hearing.

This Labor Day display, with the words “It has begun” spelled out in toilet paper, heralded the 2004-05 school year for Kohler Schools. Such displays
are now considered a violation of trespassing and vandalism ordinances and perpetrators will be required to compensate the school for cleanup costs.

Kohler Public Schools
In honor of the start of the 2005-06 school year at Kohler Public Schools, this
month’s historical photo features pictures of Kohler school students and the school
building from the 1920s.
New additions were added in the mid-1950s and late 1960s that included the
theatre and pool building. The most recent addition was added in 2004.
Each month’s issue of The Kohler Villager will feature a historic photo taken by Jacob Kopf (and
other Kohler Company photographers) as well as free-lance photographer Arthur Schaaf. Photos
taken after 1974 are by Darryl Gumm.
A DVD featuring all the photos, accompanied by piano music by composer and performer Vicky
Emerson, can be purchased by calling Darryl Gumm at 920-254-6517, by visiting the website at:
Thanks to the many readers who
responded to the call in the August issue to
help solve the mystery of Riverside House!
Darryl Gumm zoomed in to an original,
higher resolution photo and noticed the
words “Dance Hall” and “Saloon” painted
on the windows of Riverside House, operat-
ed at the time by WM. Schumann. Sometime
in the 1920s, after change of ownership, the
house became the Greenleaf Tavern (pic-
tured below – right photo).
A neighbor of Gumm’s, Dorothy
Sanderson, believed the first floor once served
as a tea house, and the second floor was used
for music lessons given by Henry Winsauer,
who was the director of the Kohler Company
Band from the 1920s to the 1940s.
Kurt Miller, a resident who has lived next
to the house for 24 years, reported that he
heard from a grandson of one of the original
owners that the house was once used by
Kohler Company as a medical facility, a
meeting place for the Girl Scouts, and a music
conservatory. A number of readers reported
that the building was rumored to
have housed a brothel sometime
during its long history!
Pamela Schumann-Hubert, great
granddaughter of the original
owner, William Schumann, was
kind enough to
Update on last month’s photo
as well as information she has gleaned from
the book History of Sheboygan County,
Wisconsin Past and Present, Vol. II
(published in 1912), and a newspaper article
by the Sheboygan Press history columnist
According to Pamela Schumann-Hubert,
the man in the photo wearing the white shirt
without a jacket was owner William
Schumann himself, and his wife, Emma
(Wimmler), who assisted her husband in
running the establishment, stands on the far
right of the group. During the 1900s, the
house served as a combined entertainment
hall, restaurant and buffet. It was originally
located on Riverside Road (believed to be
the current County Trunk PP) in the Village
of Riverside, which was later renamed
Kohler. William Schumann purchased the
property in 1908 when it was already a
well-known road house. Five of the
Schumann children also assisted in helping
to run the establishment. One of those
children, Oscar, told of hauling pails of beer
to the Kohler Company to sell to the thirsty
employees on their break time!
The house was later moved to its current
location at 527 Washington Walk, where it
now serves as a duplex residence.
Many thanks again go out to all readers
who provided this valuable information!
Kohler’s population change
Kohler resident Harold Lang wrote to
The Kohler Villager pointing out that his
1956 Columbian encyclopedia lists
Kohler’s population as being 1,789, based
on the 1950 census. The 2000 census
shows the population as 1,926. Mr. Lang
wonders how it’s possible the population
has only grown by 137 in the 50-year
The U.S. Census Bureau lists Kohler’s
1950 population as being 1,716, which
means the growth between 1950 and 2000
was actually 210.
Kohler Census data also shows that
from 1940 to 1950, the population dropped
by 73, then it dropped another 192 from
1950 to 1960. Kohler regained 214 by
1970, only to lose 87 by 1980. By 1990,
the population rose by 166, and another
108 by 2,000. It has been this gain/loss
fluctuation that makes it appear the popula-
tion has only grown 210 since 1950.
While population loss is unusual in most
communities, company towns tend to be
more vulnerable to population fluctuations.
After seeing a population loss in 1970-
1980, Kohler experienced its largest ever
20-year gain from1980-2000, perhaps
reflecting the broadening of Kohler into a
resort community beginning in the early

The Kohler Police Department is currently staffed by 7
full-time, and 3 part-time law enforcement officers. Each
month, an officer will be featured in this section.
Lieutenant David Darin
David Darin was appointed Lieutenant of the
Kohler Police Department on September 17, 2001.
Lieutenant Darin has over twenty years of sworn law
enforcement experience, and holds a Bachelor of
Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin -
Milwaukee with a Criminal Justice major and a minor
in Political Science. Prior to his appointment as
Lieutenant, he held positions with the Wisconsin
Department of Natural Resources, the University of
Wisconsin - Milwaukee Police Department, the City of
West Bend Police Department, and the Federal Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
Lieutenant Darin hails from New Buffalo,
Michigan which is located near the border of Michigan
and Indiana. Asked what inspired him to go into the
law enforcement profession, Lieutenant Darin said, "In
Michigan, every young boy wants to grow up to be a
Michigan State Trooper. My father was a volunteer
firefighter and was also a councilman and later Mayor
of New Buffalo. Because of this, I had lots of opportu-
nities to see and talk with police officers. The first
competitive sports team that I played on was coached
by the police chief. This was probably the start of my
interest. Later in life, I was a volunteer Emergency
Medical Technician (EMT) starting my senior year in
high school (Hartford, WI class of 1980). I worked
with police officers all the time. Law enforcement was
a natural transition."
Lieutenant Darin said that some of the most memo-
rable calls as a police officer were, unfortunately, also
the most tragic. They included auto accidents involving
fatalities, SIDS deaths, etc. Also memorable was the
time when Lieutenant Darin was assigned to Secret
Service protective details during campaign years and
traveled back and forth across the country. He was also
at Waco, Texas as part of an ATF Tactical Team after the
initial raid and stayed there until after the siege ended.
Lieutenant Darin's most memorable calls in Kohler
include the Church Street arson fire that happened
roughly one month after he was hired, the tragic fatal
drowning that occurred last Father's Day at the
Riverbend Dam, and many serious medical calls where
both he and other officers helped preserve life. Most
recently, the Kohler Police Department responded to the
discovery of a Sheboygan man who had been missing
for three weeks, and was found on the grounds of
Lieutenant Darin is a nationally registered and state
licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), a certi-
fied American Heart Association CPR Instructor, and is
also a certified Outdoor Emergency Care Instructor for
the National Ski Patrol. The Kohler Police Department
is actually a state licensed First Responder Unit,
responding to all medical calls in the village, and
Lieutenant Darin coordinates the training and certifica-
tion/licensure issues relating to Emergency Medical
Services. Lieutenant Darin is currently in the process of
upgrading his EMT licensure to the next level of EMT-
Lieutenant Darin spends off time with his wife and
three sons in family activities such as boating, skiing,
youth soccer, and little league baseball.
Lieutenant Darin is a member of the National Ski
Patrol, the Wisconsin EMS Association, the National
Registry of EMTs and the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police

The Kohler School Friends
Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair
is only two months away!
Kohler School Friends is gearing up for
the return of its annual Holiday Arts & Crafts
Fair on Saturday, November, 15, 2005. The
craft fair was not held in 2004 due to the con-
struction of the new school addition. Many
past fair-goers and crafters alike expressed
disappointment last year when learning that
the fair would be postponed, but the event
promises to be better than ever this year!
The 2004 Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair
brought in a record $15,747, and the event
saw an increase in attendance, concessions,
bake sale, raffle and compliments from
crafters and attendees alike!
Proceeds from the craft fair are directed
towards much needed classroom supplies for
the school, and supplementation of various
parental fees such as field trip transportation.
Kohler School Friends will also hold its
raffle in conjunction with the Holiday Arts &
Crafts Fair. Once again, great raffle prizes
will be featured in this year’s raffle including
two tickets to a Green Bay Packers game
which comes with a basket filled with game-
Kohler School Friends is also looking for
someone who would like to be the chairper-
son for next year’s 2006 arts and crafts fair.
This person would shadow the current co-
chairs so they may smoothly transition into
the chairperson position next year.

It's Sunday morning and as you open up the
paper you notice a beautiful Craftsman style
home in the real estate section. Sure, you've
been thinking about upgrading your home but
now it seems like the time to get serious. Just
then, doubt starts to creep in. Can we afford a
new home? How much can we spend on a new
home? We would surely be approved for the
loan. Wouldn't we?
The truth is that no matter if this is your
first home purchase or fifteenth, buying a
home is complicated and stressful. However,
you can make it easier for yourself. Seeking
out a pre-approval before you start shopping
can eliminate a lot of the questions. A pre-
approval will help you understand what your
monthly payments would be at various loan
amounts. You can determine the payment you
are comfortable with and narrow your housing
search to home that fall within your price
In a hot real estate market a pre-approval
could improve your chances of a seller accept-
ing your offer. If competing buyer has not had
the insight to get pre-approved you would
look more serious about purchasing the home.
This very fact can put you in the drivers' seat
as you negotiate your purchase.
During the pre-approval process your cred-
it worthiness is determined. While you may
know you have great credit, the stories of
credit histories being destroyed by scammers
are on the rise. The pre-approval can eliminate
the long and frustrating process of straighten-
ing out your credit while worrying about if the
home you fell in love with will still be avail-
As you can see, a pre-approval can simpli-
fy the home buying process, but perhaps the
best reason to get pre-approved is the peace of
mind you'll feel know that all the possible
challenges and pitfalls you can control have

The Sheboygan Falls School Board
voted to approve a co-op agreement with
Kohler Schools that will allow Kohler stu-
dents to play freshmen and junior varsity
football in Sheboygan Falls. Kohler admin-
istration had worked behind the scenes since
June when it became obvious that football
was no longer an independent option at
Kohler Schools due to lack of interest by
enough players. Kohler Schools superinten-
dent Jeff Dickert stated, "We had a core
group of interested athletes for football, but
could not get enough to fill out either a var-
sity or junior varsity team. We did, however,
want to continue to offer the sport to the
core group due to their interest, and for
some of the team dynamics that only foot-
ball can teach."
Two years ago, administration at Kohler
Schools began to investigate a co-op pro-
gram with other schools after concerns were
raised about lack of numbers and younger
students being forced to play against other
school's senior athletes. Kohler Schools
contacted every team in the Central
Lakeshore Conference but were turned
down. Superintendent Dickert conducted a
personal visit with officials from Sheboygan
Lutheran to try to persuade them that Kohler
and Lutheran would be a good fit, as
Lutheran did not have a playing field. But
the visit was to no avail. Kohler administra-
tion then visited with administration at
Sheboygan Falls, after Sheboygan Falls
expressed some informal interest after being
contacted. More formal discussions ensued
and in August the Sheboygan Falls Board of
Education took up the matter at two meet-
ings before approving the pilot co-op. In
September, administration from both
schools will begin the four month process of
applying for a varsity co-op team for the
2006 football season.
According to the Sheboygan Falls News,
some Sheboygan Falls board members were
reluctant to approve the agreement, as they
were concerned that with additional players
from Kohler, Sheboygan Falls players
would get less playing time. Concerns were
also raised that the WIAA and Eastern
Wisconsin Conference would not approve
the co-op effort, and the process of varsity
co-oping would involve a longer process.
But Sheboygan Falls District Administrator
Dr. Lee Riter felt that enrollment concerns at
other conference schools mitigated those
Superintendent Dickert also announced
that Kohler would no longer sponsor a mid-
dle school football team and instead opted to
have Kohler 6th-8th graders play in the
Sheboygan Falls United Youth Football
League. Dickert noted that the Falls United
Football League has been in existence over
35 years and plays 8 games a season, com-
pared to three games that Kohler played pre-
viously. Dickert stated, "Obviously, our kids
will get more instruction in football skills
and teamwork at the Falls youth program,
and it is a natural fit for the co-op. Thirteen
Kohler 6th-8th graders are participating.
Dickert concluded, "While everyone in
Kohler would like to have our own football
team, I feel that Falls has extended the wel-
come mat, and our football athletes will
blaze new territory that could lead to more
joint ventures with Falls in the future."

I recently spoke to a concerned citizen
about nearly being hit by a bicycle on
a sidewalk. The Village of Kohler has

on the sidewalks within the village.
The operators of bicycles must yield
the right of way to the pedestrians on
the sidewalks. Please be courteous to

School is back in Session
Now that school is back in session,
please remember to drive carefully on
the streets around the school. The
speed limit is 15 mph when children
are present in the school zones. There
is no stopping or standing of vehicles
for the westbound traffic on School
Street. Also, parents that drop children
off in the morning should do so close
to the crosswalk so the students can
be helped across the street. Students
that are crossing in mid-block amongst
the vehicles are harder to see and are
not as safe. Also, remember that stu-
dents can now be dropped off on the

Looking to add an interesting plant to your land-
scape? Consider planting Hydrangea quercifolia, or
Oakleaf Hydrangea. Oakleaf Hydrangea is a handsome,
mounded plant with deeply lobed, oak like leaves and a
profusion of large white blooms that flower in June. An
added bonus is that the leaves turn a brilliant crimson in
fall. The plant does best in full sun to partial shade, and
grows rapidly if adequate moisture and fertilizer are pro-
vided. It grows 4 to 6 feet tall, and equal or greater in
spread. Oakleaf Hydrangeas are great in mass plantings
or along the border of your yard. It's one of the best
plants to use along the edge of a woodland.
There are several different varieties of Oakleaf
Hydrangea. “Snowflake” has multiple blooms on each
stem, and a longer bloom season than most of the other
Oakleaf Hydrangea. “Snow Queen” has large white
blooms, and a deep burgundy fall color. “Pee Wee” is a
good choice for small spaces, needing only an area of
about 3 by 4 feet, but still displays the white blooms and
fall color of the larger varieties. “Allison” is a large,
mounded form with leathery leaves and white flowers.
So consider adding an Oakleaf Hydrangea to your
landscape. They are a hardy, versatile plant that will pro-
vide you with elegant, white blossoms during the sum-
mer and a fabulous burgundy color in the fall. Consider
planting them near other fall coloring plants such as
Burning Bush or Fragrant Sumac for a spectacular dis-
play of fall color.

THE KOHLER VILLAGER
Where the Green
By Mark Roehrig - Landscape Maintenance Foreman
Grass Going Dormant During the
One of the driest summers on record has caused many
lawns in our area to turn brown over the last several
weeks. This condition is called “summer dormancy.”
When exposed to extended periods of heat and moisture
stress during midsummer, the leaves of the grass plants
actually turn brown and die. The individual grass plants
are still alive and capable of initiating new growth as soon
as more favorable conditions return.
There are two strategies that you can use when faced
with a lawn that has gone into summer dormancy. If you
can live with the sight of a brown, lifeless looking lawn,
just leave it alone. You may have to occasionally mow the
area to cut back any weeds that are able to survive the dry
and hot conditions. Avoid applying fertilizer or weed con-
trol products until the grass has completely come out of
The other option is to water your lawn at least once a
week, applying a total of 1" or more of water. Deep water-
ing accomplished by letting the water run for several hours
is better than applying water for short intervals over sever-
al days. Deep watering will allow the entire root zone to be
saturated, and will help promote deeper rooting so that the
turf will be better able to survive the next drought.
So it's really a matter of what your preference is for the
look of your lawn during a dry spell.
By Dave Longmeyer - Superintendent Landscape
Marquette, WI - August 18, 2005 – U.S.
Senator Russ Feingold today, at a local
Listening Session in
proposed a target time-
frame for the completion
of the military mission
in Iraq and suggested
December 31, 2006 as
the target date for the
completion of the with-
drawal of American
troops from Iraq.
In June, Feingold
introduced a resolution
calling for the President
to clarify the military mission in Iraq, lay out a
plan and timeframe for accomplishing that mis-
sion, and publicly articulate a plan for subse-
quent troop withdrawal. Because of the
Administration's recent flurry of conflicting
signals about the duration of U.S. troop deploy-
ments, Feingold said he feels obligated to help
jump start that process by proposing a specific
goal for bringing U.S. forces home from Iraq.
The former chief of Australia's armed
forces, General Peter Cosgrove, recently
argued that the foreign troop presence was fuel-
ing terrorist activity in Iraq, and called for for-
eign troops to be out of Iraq by the end of 2006.
"Those remarks were constructive, and we need
to be having this discussion here at home. I am
putting a vision of when this ends on the table
in the hope that we can get the focus back on
our top priority and that is keeping America and
the American people safe," Feingold said.
Feingold has argued that this kind of clarity,
combined with an effective reconstruction
effort and constructive assistance to the politi-
cal process, could help the U.S. to:
Feingold Proposes Target Time For
Completion Of Military Mission In Iraq
Says Senators Must Break "Taboo"On Discussing Timing Of End Of Mission
Madison - August 17, 2005 – In a morning
ceremony, two bills authored by State
Senator Joe Leibham
signed into law by
Governor Jim Doyle.
The bills, Senate Bill
(SB) 39 and
Assembly Bill (AB)
79, had been passed
both houses of the
State Legislature ear-
lier this year.
The first bill, SB
39, creates an incentive for local school dis-
tricts to use cleaner-burning biodiesel fuel in
their school buses at virtually no expense to
the school district. The bill directs the state
Department of Public Instruction to apply
for a Clean School Bus USA Grant, a pro-
gram administered and funded by the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This grant program would be available to all
school districts in Wisconsin and would
allow a participating district to recover any
increased costs associated with introducing
and using biodiesel as a supplement or
replacement for petroleum diesel fuel. The
new law is optional for school districts and
does not create a new state mandate.
“According to the EPA, 24 million chil-
dren ride the bus to school every day and
school buses drive more than 4 billion miles
on America’s roads every year. In our con-
tinuing effort to reduce emissions and
improve our environment and the health of
our fellow citizens, the use of biodiesel is a
viable option,” said Senator Leibham. “In
addition, this effort should help school dis-
tricts reduce their transportation costs. This
Two Leibham Bills Become Law
Governor Signs Biodiesel and Consolidated Law Enforcement Initiatives
Updates From Our State And National Senators
Wisconsin State Senator
United States Senator
• Undermine the recruiting efforts and the
unity of insurgents;
• Encourage Iraqi ownership of the transition
process and bolster the legitimacy of the Iraqi
• Reassure the American people that our Iraq
policy is not directionless; and
• Most importantly, create space for a broader
discussion of our real national security priori-
"Intense American diplomatic and political
engagement in and support for Iraq will likely
last long after the troops' mission is accom-
plished and they are withdrawn. I expect that
we will continue some important degree of
military and security cooperation with the
Iraqis, as we work with them and with others
around the world to combat terrorist networks,
whether they are operating in Iraq or
Afghanistan or England," said Feingold.
"But it's almost as if talking about complet-
ing the mission in Iraq has become 'taboo,'"
said Feingold. "It's time for senators and
Members of Congress, especially those from
my own party, to be less timid while this
Administration neglects urgent national secu-
rity priorities in favor of staying a flawed pol-
icy course in Iraq. We need to refocus on fight-
ing and defeating the terrorist network that
attacked this country on September 11, 2001,
and that means placing our Iraq policy in the
context of a global effort, rather than letting it
dominate our security strategy and drain vital
security resources for an unlimited amount of
is good news for all taxpayers.”
The second bill, AB 79, allows local
municipalities to discontinue their local law
enforcement services and, instead, contract
for these services with their county govern-
ment. In an effort to reduce costs, some
counties and municipalities have already
expressed the desire to enter into such an
arrangement. Yet it is not clear under cur-
rent law whether a municipality and a coun-
ty can legally consolidate their law enforce-
ment departments. As such, this new law
creates a legal mechanism by which munic-
ipalities and counties may adopt the desired
The proposal also provides that if a city
or village and a county enter into such a
contract, a sheriff must hire, when possible,
from the ranks of former officers who lost
their positions when the departments were
consolidated. This provision should pre-
vent any serious problems arising as a
result of job loss due to consolidation.
Even though AB 79 is not state law, no
community will be required to restructure
or change the way in which they deliver
their law enforcement services. Nor does it
allow any community to simply abandon its
police department without arranging for
services to come from elsewhere.
“Allowing cities and villages to com-
bine law enforcement services with coun-
ties should serve as a vehicle to save tax-
payer dollars,” added Senator Leibham.
“The state should not stand in the way of
cooperation and cost consolidation.”

The hanging baskets along Highland Drive have been
one of Kohler Landscape's most noticeable beautification
projects. The plants used this year are Begonia “Angel
Wing Red,” Asparagus Fern, Lantana “'Lucky Lemon
Cream,” Lysimachia “Goldilocks,” trailing purple
Verbena, and Petunia “Blue Wave.” They are watered 3
times/week with a water truck and watering wand designed
to clean gutters. A granular hydrogel was added to the
growing media to increase water holding capacity and aer-
ation. A slow release fertilizer was also incorporated into
the media to slowly release nutrients throughout the sea-
son. The Village of Kohler has requested 13 more to line
School Street. Watch for more to come!

You're Invited... FALL EQUINOX CELEBRATION
Fall is the time when nature reaches fulfillment
with the ripening of her fruits. It is also symbolic of
the fusion of opposites. On the day of the fall solstice,
the sun enters the sign of Libra – the constellation of
balance or scales. The month of September marks the
beginning of fall and also the "wine moon," the lunar
cycle when grapes are harvested from arbors, pressed
and put away to become wine. The full moon closest
to the autumn equinox is known as the "Harvest
Moon," since farmers would harvest their crops dur-
ing the night with the light of the moon to aid them.
The beginning of shorter days and longer nights is
also marked by the autumnal equinox.
At Sports Core, you are welcome to gather with friends (new and old alike) to strengthen
spirits in preparation of the passage into winter. In honor of the fall equinox, please join us for
an evening of yoga and celebration as we enjoy the last rays of summer:
