Going back to school for Campus 4
Epic’s next set conjures visions of Hogwarts
Verona Press editor
A few years from now, Epic’s fourth campus will be tucked away from the main roads, obscured from view, not just from the
highway, but even from Northern Lights Road. With a huge berm behind it and Campus 5 and Campus 2 blocking the view elsewhere, it won’t have the same high profile as its other buildings.
Too bad, because they could be even more fun to look at than the much more obvious, visually stunning Farm Campus. On Monday, Epic will present its plans for the Wizards Academy Campus – located just north of Campus 2 – to the city’s Plan Commission. According to
documents submitted with the city planning department, the 478,000-square-foot complex will have five buildings that feature a mix of styles resembling old English architecture and that blend in nicely with the recently approved food service

The Verona Area Community Theater is looking to build a new building, but it apparently won’t be near Westridge Estates. The group, which has outgrown its current space on Bruce Street, has been looking for months for a new place to hold classes, rehearsals and small performances and store its props and costumes. And city staff saw an opportunity for a partnership – buying the current building, next to its bulging public works facility and sharing the new space

VACT: Children’s troupe needs more space
Continued from page 1 with VACT, for recreational programs. But neighbors of one of the locations that were being considered gave the group and parks department a resounding “no” last week, prompting VACT to pull its plans for that site. The group said they will look elsewhere as the city begins its budget process. Residents of the Meister Addition to Westridge Estates subdivision voiced their concerns at a neighborhood meeting on the proposed site near Meister Drive last Tuesday. The take-home message was that they don’t want a community building in what they dubbed a neighborhood park. About 40 residents showed up near the future park, and a dozen or so were vocal in their opposition to the VACT proposal and cited traffic and a large building in the park as their main concerns. Some considered the park a “consolation prize” of sorts for allowing Epic to realign Northern Lights Road and eat up future residential development with its expanded campus. Others thought having additional traffic coming to the park for rehearsals and performances would pose a safety risk to families in the subdivision. There were also concerns about the having a large building in the park. Still, VACT needs to find a bigger space somewhere, said member Dick Vock, who had been heading up the building plans for the group. “The needs are immediate but not urgent,” Vock told the Verona Press. “We need to expand for the children’s theater.” Each year, about 30 to 40 kids are turned away from the children’s theater program, he said. “It’s kind of traumatic to have them audition and turn them away,” Vock said. “A lot of them never come back.” The group needs more space – as much as 9,000 square feet – for rehearsals, performances and storage, Vock said. He said the group would need to wait and see what sort of agreement it can make with the city before getting into details about what a building might look like. Its space needs will determine the amount of funding it needs, too. “Until we can close the deal on (the current) building, we don’t know the size of the new building),” Vock said. Parks director Dave Walker said the city has a few other sites in mind – including a space just across Bruce Street in Fireman’s Park – but he added that no decision has been made on where to look next. Walker said the city could probably get a site picked out and ready in the next 4-6 months, but he was waiting to see what sort of plans VACT brought to the city. “The ball is kind of in their court,” Walker said, adding that VACT’s space needs might determine where the building could go. “They’ve go to figure out what they want, but we’re committed to working with them.” The city meanwhile, would have to develop a new parks plan that includes the VACT’s desires and the needs of the rest of the community. The public could review that plan at the Parks Commission level, and the building would go through the Plan Commission and Common Council, Walker said. VACT has housed its props, equipment, costumes and other items at 405 Bruce St. for the past nine years. The land was leased to the group by the city and is adjacent to the city’s parks and streets building on Bruce Street. The city’s park’s department could use the current space and the new space could be shared with the city’s recreation department for their dance classes, Vock said. Walker said the city is interested in the current space used by VACT because it’s essentially a heated workspace with bathrooms and offices. “We’re not tapped on space yet, but someday that’s going to happen,” Walker said. “It has some potential.” Because VACT is looking to collaborate with the city, Vock said the group would wait and see what comes from the budget discussions for the city and what sort of fundraising the group would be able to do for a new building. Vock said the group raised most of the money from members last time it needed to build. “There are a lot of steps to go,” Vock said. “We need to do some homework.”

Restaurant, new buildings on agenda
Verona Press editor
Even though Epic’s Campus 4 presentation likely will dominate Monday’s Plan Commission meeting, it will feature several other items of interest, including a large restaurant on Paoli Street. Another could be coming soon, as a plan for a 5,700-square-foot res taurant on East Verona Avenue was submitted and then withdrawn Tuesday. The commission already has seen initial plans for the Paoli Street restaurant, which is attached to an apartment complex along the bike trail. Monday’s discussion would be on the crucial second stage of a three-stage approval process, called the general development plan. It would be a recommendation to the Common Council. The commission could give final approval to the AgSource building Monday, as well as a 30,000-square-foot “spec” building that would be the first construction in Liberty Business Park and a storage tank for Pure Sweet Honey in the city’s original industrial park. It also will consider a recommendation for more than
200 housing units in Prairie Oaks. “The interest in developing in Verona right now is extremely high,” city planning director Adam Sayre pointed out in an email to the Verona Press. No names or owners have been associated with either restaurant, though city planning director Adam Sayre suggested developers might announce them for the Paoli Street restaurant Monday to help commissioners better visualize the type of establishment that’s planned. It is slightly smaller than in previous plans but still quite large at 4,660 square feet. It would cater to visitors along the Military Ridge State Trail and the inhabitants of the adjoining 24-unit apartment complex. The locally built project, going under the bicyclethemed name VeloCity, got some positive feedback and a few points of criticism from the commission when it first presented its plans, in July, and has returned with a bit more parking and few other changes. Representatives told the commission in July the clientele for the apartments would include active empty-nesters and young professionals and probably
start construction in the spring. The commission meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday, and it is televised on VHAT-98 and later uploaded to the city’s YouTube channel.
Under a proposed new initiative, Dane County will give $90,000 to the Verona Area School District next year to assist with handling students’ mental health situations. Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, along with VASD superintendent Dean Gorrell and other representatives from the Verona area, announced the policy at a press conference Monday at Verona Area High School. “This need exists across our county, across our state and across our nation,” Gorrell said of funding to work with students who face mental health issues. The program will provide a master’s level professional and a bachelor’s level case manager to both VASD and the Sun Prairie School District. The two will form a Children’s Mental Health Stabilization Team that will offer multiple services, including assistance in de-escalating crisis mental health situations, training school staff and law enforcement on appropriate intervention techniques and supporting families as needed to ensure
continuity at home and at school, among others. The program would total $180,000 from the 2014-15 budget, and Parisi called it his “number one” priority, as far as new budget items. He announced his proposed budget Tuesday. “Governing is about priorities,” he said Monday in Verona. “These are very well-spent dollars.” The county’s Department of Human Services will also look to generate additional revenues for the program through the Medicaid Crisis Stabilization for Medicaid-eligble children. The exact amount is unknown, but DHS “conservatively” estimates an additional $16,000. According to a recent survey from the Dane County Education Task Force, a majority of the county’s superintendents cited mental health services as the “most significant unmet need of children and families in their district,” according to a news release from Parisi’s office. Parisi said he first learned of the issue school districts faced this summer when he met with Joining Forces for Families, a county program with offices in many communities, including Verona, to learn about problems like
this one. The key to the program’s success, Parisi said, will be “constant communication” between the school district and the county to evaluate how things are going. He hopes it improves the situation for law enforcement officials and those in the schools on a daily basis. “It’s important that law enforcement has the proper resources to refer that child to,” Parisi said. “Right now, sometimes law enforcement may get a referral and they have to show up and … the resources might not be there readily available for them.” If the program works as planned, Parisi said it will save money long-term by helping the district intervene with potential issues early, therefore preventing the costs that can be associated with a major incident down the road. County Sup. Erika Hotchkiss, who serves the Verona area and has three children of her own in VASD schools, said the initiative should help all students, regardless of their mental health. “It creates an environment more conducive for all students, teachers and staff,” she said.

Letters to the editor
Letters about firefighter decision were disrespectful to elected officials
I, too, would like to weigh in on the recent brouhaha regarding the PFC, the firefighters and the open hiring issue. While I certainly understand the need for open hiring, I hope that, when the PFC gives Chief Giver the list of qualified candidates, he gives our current firefighters credit for their past loyalty and service to our community. In addition, despite the use of GPSs to locate addresses, I can’t help but feel that, when seconds count, familiarity with our community is a plus. And while I agreed with Dan Tischendorf’s basic premise that alders need to follow state law, I found his letter highly offensive. In the first line, he compared our Council to a third-grade playground, then, by the third paragraph, was calling people names, making fun of one alder for his concern about taxpayers’ money, then trashing another for his loyalty toward our existing firefighters (all the while accusing our newest alders of disrespect)! Pardon me, but whether we’re talking about $4,500 or $45,000, I’m pleased that Mr. Bare is thinking about the budget. And Mr. Tischendorf implied, in his letter, that our current firefighters cannot be trusted with the safety of the Verona citizens. I beg to differ. And, unlike Mr. Tischendorf, I do know a Verona firefigher (and, in the past, knew another). Finally, I’m really sick of people whining because an election that occurred six months ago didn’t go their way. Perhaps if the incumbents who lost their seats had bothered to campaign, rather than simply assuming they’d be re-elected, things might have turned out differently. And Mr. Tischendorf calls our newest alders arrogant! Our newer members of the Council, by contrast, were out knocking on doors, talking to prospective voters – and finding out that residents, in some cases, didn’t know who represented them and, in many others, didn’t feel their alders particularly cared about their concerns. And now Steve Reinen has described our newest alders as ‘incompetent’ – but hasn’t offered a single example of their so-called incompetence. He also mentioned discord on the Council. Well, as I often told our two sons when they were small, it takes two to argue, yet somehow, Mr. Reinen blames only one side for the discord. I also haven’t seen any examples of the newer members’ socalled partisanship, yet those who criticize them (some of whom apparently didn’t even bother to vote!) persist in making that accusation. And I say, if you’re too lazy to put down your chips and drag yourself off the couch to go vote, you’ve lost the right to ‘lament’ about the outcome. I, too, have lived in Verona for more than 30 years and, frankly, I think it was high time for a change recently met with a lovely on our City Council. lady who had recently lost I’m very happy with our famiher husband and was strugly’s representation there, and look forward to an ongoing productive gling financially.

The benefit amount is Oregon Observer • Stoughton Courier Hub
Social Security isn’t just about retirement
calculated based on your earnings record, and perhaps surprisingly, the monthly benefit the claimant receives is not reduced if benefits are also paid to one or more children. After receiving SSDI for 24 months an individual may also be eligible for Medicare coverage, regardless of age. Additionally, SSDI is not means tested – like Social Security retirement benefits, you receive SSDI if you qualify for them, regardless of what other non-work sources of income or assets that you have. An important thing to remember is that SSDI is different from most individual or group disability insurance plans. In order to qualify, you have to pass two earnings-related tests and be deemed disabled based on the Social Security Administration’s strict definition of disability. To pass the earnings tests, you must have both “recent work” and enough “duration of work,” according to the age based tables. There are many aspects to the definition of disability, but generally speaking, the disability must be long-term or expected to result in death and it must preclude you from gainful work in any occupation. For those who are born disabled and therefore cannot meet the earnings tests, there is another program called Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which can provide benefits to disabled individuals (and in some cases indigent seniors) regardless of whether they have an earnings history. Unlike SSDI, however, SSI imposes financial limits on both other sources of income and available assets. Social Security can also provide monthly survivor income benefits regardless of whether the deceased individual was receiving any type of Social Security benefits prior to death. Generally, these benefits are for minor children, but in special circumstances they can extend beyond that. These benefits are also subject to an earnings test in the form of a required number of earnings credits needed based on the individual’s age at the time of death. Spouses have a number of potential ways that they can receive benefits, as well. For example, married individuals are eligible to receive the higher of their own calculated retirement benefit or 50 percent of their spouse’s calculated retirement benefit while they are both living. When one passes away, the survivor can receive the higher earner’s benefit instead of their own. In addition, qualifying widows/widowers like the lady I referred to earlier have the ability to begin receiving Social Security benefits as early as age 60. What I find fascinating is that divorced spouses may also qualify for all of the above referenced spousal benefits as long as they were married at least 10 years and are not excluded for any other reason (remarriage can end the right to some spousal benefits, for example). Interestingly, a current spouse and former spouse (or spouses) can each be entitled to an unreduced benefit at the same time. For example, if Tom were married for 12 years to Susan, then remarried Mary for 13 years and was married to Joan when he died, all three could be eligible for his full monthly retirement income benefit. The main lesson to be learned here is to be aware that Social Security can provide a safety net for a variety of circumstances. If you would like more information about one of the programs mentioned, you can visit socialsecurity.gov, talk to the Social Security Agency in person at a local office (listed in the phone book) or can call them at (800) 772-1213. .

Mortenson said 11 students showed up at the group’s first informational session, with many more interested. She is taking charge of the senior center sessions, while librarian Teresa Voss works on the library sessions. The senior center sessions begin Thursday, Oct. 10, and will take place from 4-5 p.m. Sessions will follow Oct. 17, Nov. 7 and 21 and Dec. 12. The library will host classes from 6-7 p.m. beginning Oct. 21. Other classes will take place Oct. 28, Nov. 11 and 18 and Dec. 4. All sessions will be limited to 10 participants to ensure personalized and hands-on learning. Mortenson said she is excited students will have the “intergenerational” opportunity to offer the community, and thinks sending students out rather than having people come to the school to learn is a key. “I don’t really think that coming to the school for a class is appealing to many adults in our community,” she said. “It got me thinking well why aren’t we going to them? Now that things are mobile.” The program may expand in the spring, depending on how much interest there is this fall. “I think it’s a really simple idea, but I just don’t think communities are doing it,” Mortenson said.
Trivia night returns Saturday at VPL
Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group
A group of Verona Area High School students will learn volunteer skills only fit for the 21st century with technology classes they will offer to the Verona community this fall. Rita Mortenson, a business education instructor and educational technology coordinator at the high school, had the idea last year when she was giving blood at the library and saw the “massive” numbers of people filing in and out to help and applied for an Innovation Grant from the school district. She understood students’ “passion” for helping and being involved in the community, but wanted to find a special skill students could use. “I totally embrace stocking shelves at the food pantry and things like that … but being good at technology and Twitter and the iPad apps, that’s kind of a niche that the students have,” she said. “We really just want to show the community that the students have a lot to offer.” There will be a total of 10 classes throughout the fall split between the Verona Senior Center and the Verona Public Library, with lessons focused on basic and intermediate uses for iPads and Google Chromebooks. The $1,500 grant from the district, part of more than $80,000 given to

Simons said a Deerfield librarian who is wellpracticed at participating and running trivia contests put together all the questions. “Star Wars” trivia will be used as a tie-breaker, if needed. Teams are limited to 10 adults, but he encouraged people to come out with smaller teams or just individually, and combine forces with others they meet before the event. “The more people you have, the better depth and breadth of knowledge you’re have, because this literally covers any kind of subject; it’s pretty amazing,” Simons
Get ready to show your stuff, trivia buffs. The Friends of the Verona Public Library are hosting their second annual “Trivia Night” at the library Saturday night, with plenty of good times, food, beverages, medals and of course – lots and lots of good trivia questions. Are you and your friends game enough to take on the challenge? The inaugural event was held at Wildcat Lanes last year, but Verona Public Library director Brian Simons said organizers decided to keep things at the library to save on costs. The game consists of three halfhour rounds in which team members can discuss and debate 25 questions. Rounds will be split up by two 10-minute “snack” breaks, when food and beverages will be available. The top three teams will receive gold, silver and bronze medals for their participation. A panel of judges from the Friends will arbitrate any gray area, such as spelling of names in teams’ answers. Though each team turns in one answer sheet, everyone gets their own to write down their answers, and figuring out who’s right or wrong can be interesting to listen to, both before and after the rounds. “The questions themselves are challenging, so it’s fun
said. “It’s a good opportunity to meet new people and a fun fundraiser for the Friends. We thought it was a good way to allow more people to participate and have more of a community building event.” Debbie Bass of the Friends of the Verona Public Library said the group provides needed money for library programs to help supplement the good work already being done, and fundraisers like this are a fun way for members to replenish the funds. “Because the library has a budget, they can’t always afford to do everything they want, so the Friends pay for the summer reading program, for instance, that’s between $7,000 and $10,000, because every few days they have an event, and that’s all expensive,” she said. The entry fee is $15 per person and teams are limited to 10 adults. Only the first 100 people will be registered, and there is not an area for audience members; people should come to play. The event will take place in the Community Room, and the rest of the library will not be open. For more information, visit veronapubliclibrary. org or call 845-7180.

I have been teaching defensive driving classes as a part-time job for more than a decade and I am amazed at how seemingly friendly people can become mean and spiteful behind the wheel. I ask almost every class I teach how it feels to be “tailgated” (having someone drive too closely behind you). The answer is always the same: it feels very aggressive and dangerous and no one likes to be tailgated. When I follow up that question and ask them if they sometimes tailgate others, most of the hands go up. Most people hate to be tailgated but admit tailgating themselves, a clear violation of the golden rule. Something seems to come over us while driving whereby we interpret the actions of others as aggressive and hostile and then we lash out at them. Our driving behavior, as well as our state of mind while driving says something about the kind of people we are, and points to aspects of our character that we need to work on. Do we give others the benefit of the doubt when driving and try to be considerate of them, letting them into our lane, for instance, when we see their blinker is on and they are trying to get over, or do we think only of ourselves when driving? We should consider what our style of driving says about us and the areas of our life we may need to work on. – Christopher Simon for Metro News Service “The driving is like that of Jehu son of Nimshi, he drives like a maniac.” 2 Kings 9: 20

Epic’s wind turbines on line
Unified Newspaper Group
Campus: ‘Wizards Academy’ features old English style, oval courtyard
Continued from page 1 building, which mimics London’s Kings Cross railroad station. The campus clearly looks like something out of a Harry Potter movie, but Epic representatives and Cuningham Group, which has designed the entire Verona facility, declined to confirm the basis of any architectural themes or discuss the project until after it is presented to the Plan Commission. Looks aside, the new campus also continues the company’s return to the original 300-offices-onthree-floors philosophy it espoused in its first set of office buildings, which opened in 2005. That campus opened with around 1,600 offices in five buildings (plus a food service building), and company representatives around that time explained that limiting the size of office buildings fostered improved communication and teamwork and made people more likely to meet face to face. But the four buildings in Campus 2, which opened in 2009, averaged about 450 offices apiece. Epic returned to smaller buildings with the much smaller Farm Campus, which opened this summer with a total of just under 1,000 offices in three buildings, and it continues that theme in the larger Campus 4. “We find that employees like the smaller buildings better because they have a more human scale and provide a more comfortable, creative and productive work environment,” a letter accompanying the submission explains. “Our employees like the campus arrangement since it allows teams to be located in close proximity to other teams they work with on a daily basis.” That letter also explains why “aesthetically unique office spaces” are so important to the company, which seems to up the ante with every new building or set of buildings. “Epic competes against companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and other major high tech companies for talent,” it explained, noting that administrators get continual input from employees on themes, names and designs. “In order to be competitive,

The architectural themes in Campus 4 resemble some modernized Victorian styles and are intended to be reminiscent of an old, traditional college campus such as Oxford.
Windy fall days usually bring blowing leaves and call for a jacket, but this year they’ll also help to power Epic’s Verona campus with the company’s wind turbines officially going on line last month. The turbines, built in the Town of Springfield, were commissioned in December 2012, but they were not used until recently because of a limited amount of power the company could feed back to Verona before seeking the ability to run an underground line to the campus, Epic facilities director Bruce Richards explained. The company had to work with Madison Gas and Electric to get the power to the campus, including upsizing conductors and changing protection systems. The six turbines are each rated for 1.6 megawatts of power, for a total of almost 10 megawatts. That roughly equates to the average energy usage of the facility, though they are likely to produce only a fraction of that on average. The turbines were originally approved in 2007 for a project with a different developer, but sold as an unfinished project multiple times until Epic came into ownership, according to media reports. A 2010 Daily Reporter story cited a disparity in prices MG&E would pay for the electricity, but Richards said the company was “very helpful” throughout the process, which included “many engineering strategy sessions” to come up with an alternative to past proposals. Earlier this year, Epic submitted a proposal to the Town of Verona to run power lines along a town right-of-way, but it eventually withdrew the proposal. Epic has made waves with its alternative energy projects since it moved to Verona, including a large solar field, a second solar field providing cover to an outdoor parking lot and now the wind turbines. For a time, some Verona residents worried the company had planned to put up turbines on its Verona campus after the company’s alternative energy contractor, Morse Company, applied for a hazard determination from the Federal Aviation Administration for four towers in Verona. However, Richards has said the company has no plans to build turbines on its campus for a variety of reasons, including the compromised view from its buildings and its unpredictable growth.
our facilities need to be as good as or better than our competitors.” In addition to world-class aesthetics, the buildings will include the same highend features as the other campuses. They will be connected to one another and the already approved 1,500-stall underground garage through a series of tunnels. They all also will be connected to the geothermal climate control system and each have several individually themed conference rooms. In Epic’s other campuses, each building has a name, with many of them going through alphabetical order. And each building has its own decor theme. Those in the first campus, for example, are celestial objects lettered A through G (including the mythical “Return of the Jedi” planet of Endor), with themes ranging from Scandinavian to New York metro. The Farm Campus has the more simply named Barn, Stable and Shed, with matching interior themes. Names and themes have not been identified for Campus 4, other than what was unveiled at the Users’ Group Meetings in Verona last month. The submission letter indicates that the exterior design is “traditional and similar to the design of classroom buildings found on many of the older university campuses in United States and university cities in England such as Cambridge and Oxford.” That’s true to a point,
especially with the modernized Victorian styles prevalent in Buildings 1, 2 and 5. Buildings 3 and 4, however, located in the middle of the campus, also feature medieval-style castle walls and turrets that rise as high as 102 feet off the already elevated ground. An earlier plan, for the Kings Cross Dining Hall next door, showed five names in Campus 4 – Library, Fortress, Classroom, Observatory and Great Hall – and though those names would match the visual themes in the proposal, no such names are on it. The building themes, the turrets and the eventually secluded, high-elevation location of Campus 4 conjure images of Hogwarts, the academy in the “Harry Potter” fantasy book series. And indeed, the last three buildings on the plan share an oval-shaped courtyard that resembles a quidditch pitch – the playing field from the magical-broom sport in the J.K. Rowling novels. Another notable point is that those three will be built directly atop the company’s fourth underground parking structure. That is not the case with the other three campuses, although parts of Campus 1 covered the first parking garage, known as Zodiac. Nathan Lockwood, the civil engineer for the project, acknowledged that building on top of the garage can be complicated in terms of phasing and that excavation has not yet begun on
the already approved parking structure. But the layout clearly would allow the first two buildings to be erected while the garage is being completed. He also said it’s significantly more expensive to build on top of the garage because of the structural requirements. No official cost estimates are available for the new campus, and Epic rarely releases such numbers, but the first campus, with roughly the same square footage, was valued at $109 million when it was built. An initial estimate for work on the 60,000-squarefoot food service building, which includes connections to both Campus 2 and Campus 4, is $34 million. City building inspector Brian Flannery said Tuesday
he figures the buildings in the new campus will cost around $30 million each on average, and the garage another $35 million or so. The entire complex is valued at $460 million by the state Department of Revenue, though neither the Farm Campus nor the 11,400-seat Deep Space auditorium were complete at the time of the latest valuation, Jan. 1. Though it’s not uncommon for the assessed value of Epic buildings to be significantly less than their cost, documents submitted to the city show the cost of Deep Space to be about $430 million and the Farm Campus to be around $150 million, suggesting the value of the campus could be approaching $1 billion by next year.

Right, King Arthur (Bryn Rourke) holds up the grail he got from the Lady of the Lake (Zoe Hansen) while singing “Find Your Grail” as other cast members hold up lighters and signs as if at a concert or a vigil during the Verona Area High School theatre arts performance of “Spamalot” on Saturday night. The show, which went for three performances last weekend, is a musical adaptation of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” a farcical take on the King Arthur legend. Below, Sir Bedevere (Will Schroeder, right) leads the Knights of the Round Table in a dramatic leap forward as he explains how they will jump out of the Trojan rabbit that’s already inside the hostile French castle.

Team Score Middleton 323 Verona 326 Madison Memorial 348 Janesville Parker 355 Madison West 391 Sun Prairie 396 Janesville Craig 435 When junior Jessica Reinecke parred the par-3 10th hole Thursday, Sept. 26, at Evansville Golf Course during a playoff with Middleton’s Meggie Acker to fall short of an individual Big Eight Conference title, it could have upset her. But Reinecke, who shot a 74 to finish second overall for the Verona girls golf team, wasn’t going to let her score or that Verona fell 323-326 to Middleton for a bid at its first Big Eight title in school history get her down. “My goal is never to beat people. It is always to just play the best I can, and I did that today,” Reinecke said. “I consider it a success if I can come off the course and say that I played well. Winning doesn’t mean much to me or my team in general. We all feel good about how we played.” And it is that type of mindset that helps keep No. 2 Verona calm during these tournaments and why the girls believe they can be on top at regionals and sectionals, when they will again have to knock off No. 1 Middleton. “We always talk to each other before we play, and we say, ‘Don’t pay any attention to what they are doing. Just play your own game and focus,’” Reinecke said. “It really helps me personally, and I think it helps my team too.” It also helps to stay in the moment, and that is something that helped senior Rachel Hernandez bounce back from a 97 at the NDA Triton invite on Sept. 23

Hernandez said she was just trying to forget that tournament and focus on leaving conference with momentum heading into regionals and sectionals. “I started off not how I wanted to on the first hole, but I was able to come back and just play my game and just keep positive thoughts in my head and take more time to make sure what you are doing is right,” Hernandez said. “I feel like it is an awesome feeling to score well at this meet and keep going after this. I remember that in past years I didn’t really do well at conference and it kind of carried into sectionals and regionals. So I feel that this is a nice boost.” Hernandez also was not thinking about it being her final high school conference meet until she reached the 18th hole and

Verona/Mount Horeb traveled to Big Eight Conference rival Middleton in a battle of top ranked teams last Friday, though in the end the host Cardinals simply had too much depth. The Wildcats, ranked fourth on the Wisconsin Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association Division 1 state poll, picked up wins from sophomore Beata Nelson and junior Shelby Rozeboom in the 99-71 loss. Beata Nelson opened the meet by showing her versatility in swimming to the 200yard individual medley crown in 2 minutes, 05.29 seconds. Later she added the 100 backstroke in 56.44. Rozeboom added the only other victory for V/MH, securing the 50 free title in 25.08. “Middleton is always a great team to compete against, and I think their swimmers did an amazing job,” said V/MH head coach Halley Johnson. Fourth ranked Middleton won the eight other events, including all three relay events. “Both teams went in not knowing what the end result was going to be, and knew one of us had to come out on top,” Johnson said. “We had a really tough week of practices, having double practices every day, when we’ve only been having them three of the five days.” Defending Division 1 state champion Waukesha South/ Mukwonago remained ahead of last year’s runner-up Arrowhead on the WISCA state poll.

Wildcats fall at home against West
Sophomores Greta Schmitz and Lauren Supanich were the only Wildcats to add wins last Thursday in Verona’s 5-2 home loss against Big Eight Conference rival Madison West. Schmitz survived a scare against freshman Karolina Lungova in the first round before rolling to close out her No. 2 singles match 7-5, 6-2. Supanich struggled through a tough first set loss against senior Ryan Hanson before turning the tide over the course of the next two sets 4-6, 6-3, 6-0. Verona No. 1 singles player Anna Maria Hadjiev had a chance to add a third singles win, but was unable to close out her match against senior Siggy Ohnesorge 2-6, 6-2, 6-0. Seniors Karen Wong and Rachel Nachreiner dropped their No. 3 doubles match 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3. “Both teams are so evenly matched it could really got everyway everytime we play,” Wildcats head coach Mark Happel said. “We had our opportunities at all seven flights. It just depends on the day and today just wasn’t our day.” The Wildcats head to the Nielsen Tennis Stadium on Thursday and Friday for the Big Eight Conference tournament. Play gets underway both days at 10:30 a.m. Schmitz and Supanich, who only have one loss (against the Cardinals) within the conference should get No. 2 seeds, while everyone else should be a 3 or 4, Happel said. “Middleton is good enough to win everything,” Happel said. “They are clearly not only the best team in our conference, but in the state right now. Hopefully we can sneak in there some place to get a title.” Senior Bridget Bellisimo returns to defend the 1 singles title she won as a sophomore after a year of playing in the USTA tournament. Supanich finished runner-up at 3 singles a year ago to Middleton’s Madison Krigbaum, who is playing Photo by Jeremy Jones 4 singles this season. Subsectionals are set for Monday, Oct. 7, Sophomore Greta Schmitz returns a shot against Karolina Lungova during their No. 2 singles back at Nielsen. Play starts at 8 a.m. match last Thursday.

Nameth runs to another first place at Midwest Invitational
Loss means Cats need three straight
Assistant sports editor
Junior Ryan Nameth became the first boys cross country runner to run to victory at the at the 76th annual Midwest Invitational at Blackhawk Golf Course in Janesville on Saturday. Nameth finished with a meet-best 5K time of 15 minutes, 46 seconds to guide the Wildcats to a sixth place finish out of 38 teams. Verona’s pack was simply too spread out to make a run at a top five finish as it was more than a minute before senior Ben Feller reached the finish line in 27th place with a time of 16:49. Fellow senior Luke Waschbusch followed in 36th with a 17:02. Sophomore Brady Traeder took 73rd place in 17:31, while senior Jonah Tollefson was the Wildcats’ final scorer, finishing 111th in 17:54.
With 52 seconds between the team’s second and fifth runners, including 23 seconds between your fourth and fifth runners, head coach Randy Marks knows those numbers will need to come down in order to finish as a top three team at the Big 8 Conference meet. “If we can’t do that, then third (or maybe not even that) is about the best we can expect in conference with Memorial snapping at our heels,” Marks said. “As we get into our taper, I expect their times to drop and have some significant PR’s.” Chris Williams and Nick Stigsell both competed on varsity, but did not score. Verona had five personal bests in the meet, which Marks said is unusual as the course usually runs

It has been a long time since the Verona Area High School football team has been in a position to potentially miss the playoffs, but a 35-28 loss at Middleton last Friday means the Wildcats need three straight wins to not miss the playoffs for the first time since 2003. The good news: Verona (2-4) plays Janesville Parker, Madison East and Madison West which all combine for a 4-14 record. But head coach Dave Richardson said he isn’t worried about what teams Verona will face. He feels that if the Wildcats play like they did against Middleton, they should be able to win out and make the playoffs. Richardson said Verona needs to get four to five yards on offense on first downs, and it needs to force second-andlongs on defense. That way the Wildcats are in a comfort zone with play calling. “We have worked on that hard, first downs on both sides of the ball,” Richardson said. “If we can stay in secondand-shorts on offense and second-andlongs on defense, then we are in great shape and are battling the game and not so much the opponent.” Despite the loss at Middleton, Verona did show signs it was improving from the previous losses. One mistake by senior quarterback John Tackett with under two minutes to go clinched the game for Middleton. Tackett helped drive Verona to the Cardinal 41-yard line but had a thirdand-3 and was forced to make a pass with time winding down. That pass was picked off by junior linebacker Brian Chapman, and Middleton was able to run out the clock. “It was a difficult situation,” Richardson said. “You try to get a play you setup, and they stayed home.” The Wildcats did hold two leads in the first half, the second after trailing 20-7 with 4 minutes, 45 seconds left before halftime. A late-hit penalty on Middleton kept a drive alive, and Tackett found senior split send Mitch Flora on an 18-yard pass. Senior defensive lineman Kenny Keyes then recovered a fumbled snap on the next drive, and Verona once again caught break after a late-hit on Tackett on fourth down. Tackett found Flora once again on a 14-yard touchdown pass with five seconds left in the first half to give Verona a 21-20 lead. “I thought we really got off to a good start,” Tackett said. “I mean if we can keep the ball moving and not shoot ourselves in the foot with penalties, holding and jumping offsides, and keep our

Junior Eric Schmid breaks a tackle on his way to a first down last Friday at Middleton. Schmid finished with 100 yards on 20 carries, but the Wildcats fell short in a 35-28 loss. Verona is now 2-4 on the season and needs to win three straight to make the playoffs.
momentum, then we are really something to watch out for.” The first lead for the Wildcats was on the opening drive. Richardson got the team fired up with a new cheer between the crowd and the team before kickoff. Verona went 58 yards on 10 plays on that opening drive, capped by junior Eric Schmid’s 5-yard touchdown run. Verona finished its scoring in the fourth quarter when Schmid ran two yards for a score, tying the game at 28. Middleton senior running back Charles Braxton, who finished with 221 yards on 29 carries, was too much to handle on the next drive, however. Braxton ran all seven plays and scored on a 1-yard touchdown for the eventual game-winner. “Close games are on the coaches, and that is on me,” Richardson said. “We have to pull these games out, and we have taken great pride in pulling these games out since we have been here. “For whatever reason, this year, I am just not able to solve the puzzle, but we will keep working our tail off.” Junior running back Adam Frye was the other big weapon for the Cardinals’ running attack. He gave Middleton its first second-half lead with a 1-yard run with 50 seconds left in the third quarter, and he scored the first two touchdowns for Middleton – a 1-yard run in the first and a 5-yard run at the start of the second. Middleton’s other score came in the second quarter with a 10-yard pass from senior quarterback Kasey Miller to junior Kellan Schulz. The Cardinals did try for a 2-point conversion after that touchdown and didn’t

Tackett finished 9-for-13 with 105 yards. Schmid had 100 yards on 20 carries, and he added two catches for 30 yards. Flora finished with three catches for 30 yards, while senior running back Travis Murray had three catches for 36 yards. Junior defensive back Grant Smith and Flora added interceptions. Miller was 12-for-13 with 164 yards. Junior wide receiver Mitchell Herl had three catches for 46 yards. Verona hosts Janesville Parker (2-4) at 7:30 p.m. Friday for homecoming. “We have to get it going. We can’t take a week, a day, a practice off,” Tackett said. “We have to come everyday ready to go.”
Cats shocked by East to fall to 5-2 in the Big Eight Conference
The Verona Area High School boys soccer team was upset 3-1 at Madison East Tuesday. The Purgolders came into the game with only one Big Eight Conference win but put up three-unanswered goals after junior Kye Hanson put the Wildcats up 1-0 in the 13th minute. Madison East junior midfielder Sasa Yodkerepauprai scored twice in the second half, with the first assisted by junior midfielder Declan Schlichting. Senior forward Gavin Huismann had the equalizer in the first half with an assist to senior defender Ian Nielsen-Fox. Senior goalie Connor Rortvedt had nine saves for Verona. Conor Schlichting had 11 for Madison East. The loss drops the Wildcats to 5-2 in the Big Eight, while Madison East improves to 2-5. Verona hosts Beaver Dam at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Reddan Park, and it hosts Madison West at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Reddan. Janesville Parker 8-0 last Thursday in a Big Eight Conference matchup.

Murphy: Third all-time in scoring in state
Continued from page 1 then, but that wasn’t the only difference. The culture of the game was also different for girls. Murphy said she grew up only watching the Badger men, never watching a Middleton High School game or a women’s basketball game until she made the varsity team in 1990. There was also only one top AAU team in the area compared with the myriad choices girls have today. So it was moments like that state championship game that grew the brand of the sport locally. “Just to see these girls now look up to my players. Our little neighbor kids pretend they are Lexi Richardson in the backyard shooting around on their hoop,” Murphy said. “It has come so far. I don’t think we realized at that point that just putting girls basketball more on the map, what that did. That was just a special year.” That moment is also a big part of why she will be inducted as a player into the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame this weekend. The ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells. Murphy, in her 10th year with Verona, doesn’t remember all the wins and losses from her Middleton days, but she does remember what a great time she had. And that is something more important to her to pass down to her players and one reason she would love to get back to the state tournament as a coach. “It was fun, and going to the state tournament really capped that for us,” she said. “That is why I want to get back there every year to share a little bit of that experience with my players. “I don’t want to go for me. I want to go for them.”
Swim: Verona drops dual at Middleton
Continued from page 9 season where the Wildcats ramp up their yardage, Johnson said, unfortunately fell on the week of her team’s biggest meet. “The one question everyone has asked me is, ‘why this week, why not just wait another week?’ and every time my answer was, because although this was a big meet for us, our dual meets are practices to see our competition. “We have half of the season left and our main goal is the championship season.” Verona travels back to Middleton at 10 a.m. Saturday for the Middleton Invitational. “As the coaches we definitely saw what we still need to work on and how we are going to plan out the rest of the season,” Johnson said.
Angie (Halbleib) Murphy scored 2,378 points at Middleton High School and led the Cardinals to the state title game in 1993. She is being inducted into the WBCA Hall of Fame as a player Saturday.

don’t, you have a lifetime of memories that you have created with a bunch of girls.” Murphy even had a chance to go on the college track and be a graduate assistant after college, but instead she chose to return home to coach the Middleton sophomores during the 1999-2000 season. She remained there for four years before taking the reins in Verona beginning with the 2003-04 season. “I really wanted to be with high school kids, because I really didn’t see very many female coaches at that level and I wanted to pursue that route,” she said.
Senior Mallory Olson swims to a second-place finish in Friday at Middleton. The fourth-ranked Wildcats lost the dual to the thirdranked Cardinals, 99-71.
“We have had a lot of injuries come into the season and sickness is also a factor, so my main goal until championship season is to get us

A coach and a mentor
Murphy is flattered for being inducted in her first year of eligibility as a player, but she said she is more concerned with coaching at this stage in her life. That stems from the lessons she learned while playing basketball. She said sports for girls are important because it takes pressure off of them, especially in a society that stresses a certain way to look or act. And for her, basketball was that outlet. “The kids have an outlet like basketball, which is a physical sport where they can feel good about their accomplishments other than always the way they look and the way they dress,” she said. “The self-esteem and confidence you get for just being part of a team. Basketball has just given me so much more. The leadership I have gotten from it. The good times, the bad times, winning and losing, you experience all of it through sports.” She wants to pass that on to her players – not stories of her accomplishments but to learn with them and try to give the players best experience she can give. “Not everybody is a star, and no matter how hard you work, you aren’t always going to get to play a lot,” Murphy said. “Those are life lessons that kids need to learn. I learn every year just like the players do.”
237 (school record) out on the journey through the recruiting process. Murphy went on to play Division I basketball at Kansas University after high school and ended up 14th in school history in scoring (1,429 points). She still holds the school record for 3-pointers (237). “I knew I would reach that goal at some level. I just didn’t know where, so I just enjoyed the experience,” Murphy said. “I worked hard and let the chips fall where they may. I had my ups and my downs, but Kansas ended up being the right place for me in the long run.” She was with the Jayhawks when they won the last Big Eight championship, when they won the first Big 12 championship and when they went to a Sweet 16. She was in the NCAA tournament every year, but because of the WIAA state tournament, she still looks at high school as her best basketball experience. “I don’t want kids to overlook the high school basketball experience,” Murphy said. “If you get to take it to the next level, great. If you

Experience of a lifetime
Murphy graduated from Middleton as the all-time leading scorer in Wisconsin with 2,378 points, and she also held the single-season record for the 1992-93 season with 789 points. She remains still third alltime in both categories. “I am really happy to see her getting inducted,” Middleton head coach Jeff Kind – who coached Murphy in her senior year – said. “Obviously, she was a great player. She was such a fantastic scorer but also a team player at the same time. It was about her leading the team. … It was a pretty magical season.” Division I basketball was always a goal for her while in high school, but she said that her parents – Bob and Leenar – and her brother Scott all helped her to realize her goal without missing

XC: Harriers aim to move up the ranks
Continued from page 10 fast as it is pretty flat. Feller and Waschbusch had personal bests along with Josh Wampfler, T.J. Manning and Jack Kleese on junior varsity. “Times overall in the field did not seem very fast this year,” he said. “It got very hot for the JV races so that was a factor.” Only 10 points separated last year’s fourth-place finisher at the WIAA Division 2 state cross country meet, Monroe (150), D1 sixth-place finisher La Crosse Logan (156) and D2 third-place finisher Wisconsin Lutheran (160). Last season’s D1 runner-up, Madison La Follette, were close behind finishing fourth with a 167. Verona placed sixth (out of 38 teams) with a team score of 242. “We saw some great competition, though too many schools for the size of the course,” Marks said. Tuesday saw the boys send their JV team back at the Yahara Hills Running Course for the Big Eight 5 Team Challenge where the Wildcats followed suit with Madison West, Madison Memorial and Madison La Follette and held their top runners out of the meet. The Wildcats travel to the Stoughton Invitational at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Felicia ran a season PR, which closed our 1-5 split, but not in a good way,” Nelson said. “It was encouraging to see that Kayleigh Hannifan’s time would have put her as our fourth runner. I am convinced that she must play an important role in our team’s success at sectionals.” Senior Aylise GrosenbacherMcLamery (17:11) and Sarah Guy (17:17) rounded out the Wildcats’ varsity five in 116th and 124th place, respectively. Sarah Butler and McCabe also competed on varsity. Verona finished 20th overall out of 33 schools with a team score of 527. The Wildcats were fifth out of the nine Big Eight Schools competing. Defending state champion Arrowhead (90) edged last season’s runner-up Neenah (92) while Big Eight rival Sun Prairie (123) leapfrogged last year’s third-place finisher for the first time this season to round out the top three. Madison Edgewood was the top Badger South Conference school finishing sixth behind Amy Davis’ first-place finish in 14:18. University Lake School senior Isabel Seidel ran her way to a top time of 14:06, though she wasn’t part of a team. “Our team is entering the phase of the season in which we have been training for a while, and it is easy to let the burdens of workouts and school demands bring down our enthusiasm,” Nelson said. “We must continue to work hard and take care of ourselves in order to be able to reach our goal at sectionals. “The meet results from last weekend prove that there are many teams that could qualify for state from our sectional. Ultimately, the girls will have to work together and encourage each other because every place will be critical during the meet.”
Wildcats honor teammate
The Freshman heavyweight and lightweight teams showed their support for teammate Santi Garrido (bottom row in center) by wearing white wrist wrap with his initials during a 40-26 win over Madison Memorial. Garrido has Osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer) and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. His teammates miss him as excellent player and wish him a full recovery.
Senior Jenni LaCroix finished 88th overall to lead Verona with a 16:45. “The Midwest Invite is typically a PR course, but after conferring with many coaches on Saturday, for some reason it ran much slower than normal,” Wildcats head coach Dave Nelson said. Junior Felicia Retrum placed seven spots later in 16:52, while Erica Higgins crossed the finish line six spots later in 104th place. “Jenni was battling a foot injury and

Junior Jessica Reinecke tees off on the 12th hole in the Big Eight Conference meet. She finished second overall with a 74, falling in a playoff to Middleton’s Meggie Acker.
Wildcats: Sectionals is Monday
Continued from page 9 had a conversation with her senior friend from Middleton, Kelly Wassarman. Hernandez is still not thinking too much about these final few weeks of her high school golf career, but she is definitely proud of how far her and her teammates have come this season. Sophomore Bailey Smith also finished in the top 10 for Verona with an 83 to take fifth. Sophomore Hanna Rebholz finished Verona’s scoring with an 88. Head coach Bailey Hildebrandt said that the girls are steady right now, and that is what she wants to see as the playoffs come around. “They are in that real reliable range of this is what I can expect,” Hildebrandt said. “We need dependable, reliable scores right now, not up-and-down. So it is nice that they are honing in.” Middleton’s Acker (74) was first overall, and Loren Skibba was third with an 80. Sheenagh Cleary shot an 84 to take eighth, while Hunter Schultz shot an 85 to finish 10th overall. “We can all look back and find three strokes, but when your No. 5 shoots a 74, you have to throw it up to Middleton,” Hildebrandt said. “They did a great job

But I am really proud of our girls. They played well, and it was a good day.” Madison West’s Anna Buna (84) was sixth, while Janesville Parker’s Micayla Richards (84) was seventh. Madison Memorial’s Tatum Jones (84) was ninth. No. 5 Madison Memorial was third overall with a 348, while Janesville Parker
was fourth with a 355. Madison West (391), Sun Prairie (396) and Janesville Craig (435) rounded out the places. Beloit Memorial, Madison East and Madison La Follette did not have full teams. Verona played in the Middleton regional at Pleasant View Golf Course Wednesday, and it did not meet the Verona Press’ Tuesday deadline. Look for results on ConnectVerona. com. The Madison West sectional is at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 7, at Odana Hills Golf Course. Verona, which was No. 1 for much of the season, will be looking for a state berth but will have to face Middleton and Madison Memorial, as well as No. 6 Stoughton and an improved Oregon team and only two spots available for state. But Hildebrandt is confident the girls will be ready. “We have a tough road, a lot harder than some of the paths that we could have been in,” Hildebrandt said. “We have to just keep our focus and play our best and throw it all out there and see what happens.” Reinecke is the defending WIAA Division 1 state champion, and she said the team can definitely go to state if it continues on the path it has been this season.
