A model character
Nettles-Bey wins Inspirational Player of the Year award
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
When Verona Area High School
junior Ebony Nettles-Bey was diag-
nosed with Stage 4 rhabdomyosarcoma
last September, she knew right away
that she would defy the odds.
It didn’t take long for people to see
her determination and drive and cheer
her on. All around the state, people were
amazed at how a 16-year-old could deal
with the burden of cancer so well.
And last Thursday, Nettles-Bey was
honored with the Associated Bank
Inspirational Player of the Year Award
at the Wisconsin Sports Awards at the
Kern Center in Milwaukee. It commem-
orated a year in which she helped the
Wildcats to a 20-3 record while under-
going chemotherapy and radiation treat-
ment.
Despite the fatigue brought on by the
treatment, Nettles-Bey, who was unable
to be reached for comment Tuesday,
still managed to smile during games and
checked herself in and out of hospitals
to join her varsity teammates on the
court.
That resiliency set an example for
those who heard her story, and that is
what helped her earn the award.
“There were only two video pieces
on the night, one on Aaron Rodgers and
one on her. That is why it is a big deal,”
VAHS girls basketball head coach
Angie Murphy said. “After the awards
were over, people were coming up to
her left and right and telling her what an
inspiration she was.
“What she is doing and what she did
Verona Fire Department
Union prevails in hiring lawsuit
Judge: City must keep union, can’t start from scratch
MARK IGNATOWSKI
Unified Newspaper Group
After nearly four months of
legal proceedings, the Local 311
firefighters union has won a law-
suit that will keep its current full-
time members on the Verona Fire
Department.
How that decision will affect
the department’s hiring plans
remains to be decided. The Com-
mon Council was briefed on the
issue in closed session Monday,
city administrator Bill Burns told
the Press. Details about the city’s
options were not disclosed but
could likely be revealed in the
next six months.
Dane County Circuit Court
Judge Peter Anderson issued an
oral ruling April 24 that the city
could not change the employ-
ment of the current union mem-
bers without bargaining with
them. Anderson said the city was
essentially acting as an “alter
ego” of the firefighters’ previous
employer, the Verona Fire Dis-
trict. Anderson said he believed
a majority of people would agree
that the city should not have tried
to change the department struc-
ture without bargaining with the
unionized firefighters.
“If you asked 100 people who
didn’t know anything about this
case … I think at least 90 would
say that’s really unfair,” Ander-
son said.
Attorneys for the firefight-
ers union will file a draft written
order in the next two weeks or
so, Burns said. The city will then
have a chance to review that draft

A year away
from a century
Warren Webster got a big birth-
day surprise as more than 15 Mount
Horeb, Verona and Mount Vernon
friends showed up to say “Happy
99th birthday” Thursday morning.
Webster, who turned 99 years old
on Friday, is as spry as ever. The
well-known jokester lives in Verona
and regularly works out at Anytime
Fitness.
That included a group of area
men who meet each Tuesday and
Thursday at the Mount Vernon Fam-
ily Auto Shop to – well – tell a few
lies, and not just about their ages.
The weekly coffee group threw the
birthday party for Warren, who was
surprised by the cake, donuts and
friends who showed up.
“I didn’t expect this,” said Web-
ster, who was wearing a T-shirt that
had his own photo on the front which
was from his 95th birthday.
And how does 99 feel?
“Just like when I was 98,” he said.
“Not many things have improved or
gone downhill.”

City of Verona
Commission sorts through pile of projects
JIM FEROLIE
Verona Press editor
If you need a sign that the
economy is starting to wake
up, look no further than the
city’s Plan Commission.
Monday’s meeting is full
of new projects for busi-
ness creation and expan-
sion. It also has a few items
that could provoke a bit of
a reaction at either the com-
mission or Common Coun-
cil level.
The biggest items are
Epic’s new 1,500-vehicle
parking garage, its move
and expansion of its con-
t r act or annex bui l di ng
(to assist with its endless
expansion), a 62-unit apart-
ment complex and a second
multi-tenant building at
Liberty Business Park.
But also notable are the
possible move of Sugar
Ri ver Uni t ed Met hod-
ist Church from the city’s
former library building off
Main Street to the Wildcat
Lanes building on West
Verona Avenue; a plan to
put a 65-foot-tall flagpole
in front of Wisconsin Brew-
ing Company and a review
for the city’s new fire sta-
tion.
The commi ssi on wi l l
also hold public hearings
for Orange Leaf Yogurt to
move into the new Home-
town Circle building and a
request for a construction
company to store equip-
ment in and behind the old
Holmquest Motors building
on Bruce Street.
The meeting begins at
6:30 p.m.
Big projects
Epic’s garage got an ini-
tial review last month, and
it’s the fifth such park-
ing structure the company
has built, so there’s little
left but formality. Much
more intriguing will be the
plans for Campus 5, which
are likely to appear before
the Plan Commission well
before Campus 4 is finished
– maybe even before the
first building is completed.
Campus 4 is butting up
against its contractor annex
building, so the plan there
is to tear down the existing
structure and build a new,
permanent one between
the reservoir and the solar
fields with a barn theme
that will be two stories and
double the overall square
footage (36,000). It is not
planned to go in the city’s
urban servi ce area and
would be run on well and
septic.
The 62-unit apartment
complex and the Liberty
Park building are both pre-
dictable developments that
show promise for the econ-
omy. Developers have been
telling the city for the past
couple of years that there
aren’t enough apartments,
and the 5-acre multifam-
ily lot has been part of the
Scenic Ridge plan from the
beginning.
Scenic Ridge is already
beginning to build out its
sixth and final phase of
single-family homes there,
leaving Cathedral Point as
the only undeveloped sin-
gle-family housing area in
the city (aside from a newly
replatted 7-acre section in
Hometown Grove).
The apartments, on one
of two apartment lots in the
neighborhood, will need to
go to the Common Coun-
cil for a permit to have
two 31-unit buildings (a
single building would not
require the permit). They
are not subject to the city’s
apartment phasing policy
as long as they stay within
all codes and don’t ask for
any exemptions, which city
planning director Adam
Sayre said they have not.
He described the building
materials, rife with brick
and other high-quality ele-
ments, as comparable to the
recently built Siena Ridge
apart ment s i n Harmony
Hills.
Liberty Park’s spec build-
ing is a 26,500-square-foot
“spec” building like the one
just west of it that drew a
brief groundbreaking cere-
mony Monday. Landowner
David Reinke said when his
team started filling up its
30,000-square-foot cousin,
he found it had more ten-
ants than spaces and quick-
ly made plans for another.
The plans look similar,
except it will end up being
more hidden away from the
main roads of County High-
way M and Liberty Drive.
Church move
Sugar River’s move to
West Verona Avenue is the
first test of an 18-month-
old city policy that requires
any institutional use, such
as a church or school, to go
through a permit review.
While the Plan Commis-
sion might not have a lot to
say about a church inhabit-
ing an existing building, it’s
exactly the sort of thing that
a few alders were concerned
about when the policy was
instituted as a reaction to St.
Vincent de Paul’s move into
the old Erickson Chevrolet
dealership a couple blocks
away.
Even though the Erick-
son building sat dormant for
more than three years and
the city declined opportuni-
ties to invest in the land, the
area was considered a high-
value commercial district
along a well-traveled road
and the thrift store was seen
as a spoiler to the possibility
of turning the larger overall
area, including the former
truck stop, into a more com-
prehensive development.
The same could be said of
Wildcat Lanes, which has
been in receivership for
more than two years and
was initially valued at more
than $1 million.
Sugar Ri ver has pro-
posed several changes to
the building to freshen it up
and mask some of its less
desirable features, including
new entry points, new exte-
rior materials and a drive-up
canopy.
The city policy requires
churches, schools and simi-
lar “indoor institutional”-
zoned facilities to obtain a
conditional use permit to
locate in the downtown dis-
trict, which includes most
of Verona Avenue. At one
point, the city had consid-
ered prohibiting such uses or
requiring most commercial
uses to go through a permit-
ting process, but the council
considered those options too
strict.
Verona Area School District
VAHS named top-10
Wisconsin high school
Ve r ona Ar e a Hi gh
School is a top 10 high
school i n Wi sconsi n,
accordi ng t o ranki ngs
recently released by U.S.
News and World Report.
VAHS officially came
in at No. 6 in the state
out of 374 high schools
ranked, behind Middle-
ton, Ronald Wilson Rea-
gan College Preparatory
and King International
high schools in Milwau-
kee, Wauwatosa East and
Marshfield.
VAHS Principal Pam
Hammen said in an email
she was “delighted” by the
ranking.
“It is in recognition of
the outstanding work of
our staff and students,”
Hammen said.
The publication looked
at a “Col l ege Readi -
ness Index, ” based on
Advanced Placement sta-
tistics from the 2011-12
school year, along with
math and reading profi-
ciency and the student-to-
teacher ratio in developing
the rankings.
The school was ranked
nationally at 809 out of
4,707 that performed well
enough to have a spot on
the list.
U.S. News also awarded
gold, silver and bronze
“medal s ” t o s chool s
around the country based
on the College Readiness
Index. VAHS was one of
32 Wisconsin high schools
and 1,519 nationally to
receive a silver.
U.S. News worked with
the American Institutes for
Research to develop the
rankings using a method-
ology that looked beyond
how a school served its
hi ghest -achi evi ng st u-
dents.
“AIR implemented the
U.S. News comprehen-
sive rankings methodol-
ogy, which is based on the
key principles that a great
high school must serve all
of its students well, not
just those who are college
bound, and that it must be
able to produce measur-
able academic outcomes
to show the school is suc-
cessfully educating its stu-
dent body across a range
of performance indica-
tors,” U.S. News wrote in
its explanation of the rank-
ings.

Stay or go? Don’t
decide in a panic
The question of whether to con-
tinue a struggling relationship is one
we all know. It’s been the subject of
countless movies, advice columns,
sermons and gossip sessions and
always will be.
I have observed numerous people
struggling with doubts about their
relationships not
only as clients,
but also dear
friends. Chances
are, you, too,
have been
through a tough
time in your
relationship or
have had friends
or relatives ques-
tioning whether
they should stay
or go.
It is painful to experience either
way.
Sometimes it is so painful, in fact,
that friends and family, in wanting
the best for their loved ones, encour-
age them to cut to the chase and just
leave. That’s normal, but it is also
risky, as people facing such agoniz-
ing relationship decisions will tend
to fluctuate rapidly in their thinking
and emotions.
By the time couples get profes-
sional help with this quandary, one
or both partners are usually close to
ending the relationship. But even
when one has clearly stated he or
she is through trying, there is work
to be done.
Couples therapy should be an
extended evaluation, rather than a
drive to save the relationship at all
costs.
In general, it should have the
mission of both partners growing
healthier and stronger, and only then
making major decisions. The goal
is to make such decisions out of a
position of strength rather than panic
and pain.
The evaluation of a damaged
relationship has several parts. It is
not just to decide whether to stay
together or not but also to better
understand what has happened
between you.
Most often, partners nearing sepa-
ration or divorce feel overwhelmed
by events and confused. They ques-
tion how something that started so
good now seems so difficult and
painful.
Repeated injuries often put
couples in a state of hopelessness.
They feel they have tried everything
to please one another or repair the
relationship and “nothing I do will
ever be enough.” Each new disap-
pointment adds to their certainty.
When couples are able to disrupt
these repetitive patterns and recog-
nize their own negative arousal, they
are often able to behave differently
and begin building trust.
Evaluation and treatment offers
the opportunity for greater under-
standing and perhaps even the
ability to forgive each other and
truly move on to something better
-- whether the couple stays together
or not.
It should also help prevent similar
errors in the future. Fighting is prim-
itively based in old learning, so if no
corrective action is taken, you likely
will eventually find yourself in some
of the same difficulties.
That’s why the initial goal of ther-
apy should not be to simply press a
couple to stay together or fix things.
It shouldn’t even be for them to be
nicer to one another. It should be for
each partner to slow down their own
thinking and try to entertain a wider
range of views of their situation.
Even when one or both partners
say they are fully committed to
divorce, they often see other options
when their combative, injured states
are reduced and they are able to
view each other in a more dispas-
sionate and creative fashion. Stress,
after all, reduces creativity, so dis-
tressed couples tend to see the world
in a black-and-white fashion.
Sometimes divorce is necessary,
although not as often as it actually
occurs. The urgency to self-protect
and to get away from the partner
may be misplaced and needless, if
you are able to engage your higher
brain and redesign your relationship.
Notice this discussion focuses
completely on couples, and not
families. Staying together just for
the children or to appease family
or friends is only reasonable if you
can reduce the tension and rebuild
a sense of partnership and family.
Otherwise, the continued stress will
only do further harm.
A sense of partnership and col-
laboration, as opposed to battling
or avoiding each other can be tre-
mendously relieving and is a first
step toward a better discussion. If
you stay together, you may then
move on from simple partnership
to greater ability to trust each other
and play together and this in turn
can lead to intimacy. If you do part
ways, perhaps you can do so in a
healthy way.
It’s also important to note that any
couple doing this should not put too
much stock in opinions of friends
and family.
When partners are struggling,
they must contend not only with
their own pain and fear, but often
also with the fantasies, projections
and “insights” of those around
them. Friends, family members and
colleagues, well-intentioned and
concerned for them, will react from
their own black-and-white, emotion-
ally driven thinking and say things
that are perhaps unhelpful for the
specific situation.
It’s one thing if a person is being
harmed and friends or family offer
help to prevent further harm. But
when they encourage you to get out
fast to relieve their own distress or
to stay due to their own values, slow
everything way down.
Even therapists fall into this trap
of feeling protective and urging
divorce without knowing the whole
story.
If you’re evaluating your own
relationship, assess whether you
have tried everything, whether you
are unsafe in your current situation,
whether you could be happy again
with your partner or if you would be
better off alone, and whether there
is anything you could get from your
partner that would provide a little
hope.
If you feel there is no hope, my
first questions would be about the
willingness each of you has to even
wish for hope and be willing to try
new behaviors in that pursuit.
And if you are a friend or family
member, you can be most helpful
by maintaining your support for the
person and the couple, regardless of
their decisions.
They need to know that you want
the best for them, that you will
remain there for them and that you
respect them enough to respect their
decisions.

Letters to the editor
Bundy case shows how far
conservatives will push their ideology
Attention: White Supremacists,
underground racists, Posse comi-
tatus members, those suffering
from Obama derangement syn-
drome, bigots, Fox News watch-
ers, Republicans and other igno-
rant, fearful people.
When Cliven Bundy refused to
pay the federal government fees
for having his cattle graze on
federal land, he became a hero
to those listed above. Deadbeat
Bundy owed a million dollars
in back fees and when the Feds
were going to collect, he amassed
armed local supporters in Nevada
and threatened violence to any
agents attempting to collect the
money he owed. Bundy stated he
does not recognize the authority of
the federal government and stated
he only recognizes the authority
of the local Sheriff.
Sean Hannity, Fox News and
other right wing radio commenta-
tors plus a number of Republican
Senators proclaimed Bundy a hero
and patriot. Fox News gave exten-
sive coverage to Bundy as a Patri-
ot fighting big government
Bundy then went on several
rants proclaiming that “Negroes
would be better off as slaves” and
other racist comments.
Sean Hannity and his politi-
cal cohorts responded to Bundy’s
hateful comments by trying to dis-
avow themselves as Bundy allies
saying that his comments were
“racist and beyond repugnant.”
This episode exhibits how the
extreme right will go to absurd
l engt hs t o make i deol ogi cal
points. When their idiotic rea-
soning blows up in their face, it
becomes clear they will do any-
thing in trying to reinforce their
radical, mind boggling group
think.

been the shortest such cer-
emony ever held in Verona.
Under a chilly rain that
couldn’t be blocked out by
tents because the darn things
wouldn’t stay in the ground,
the two men made a quick
announcement of four ten-
ants for the new building and
alluded to plans for a second
one to come later this year.
A 26,500-square-foot struc-
ture similar to the one started
Monday is set for a Plan
Commission review next
week.
Those first four tenants
included none other than
KSW, a Fitchburg company
that has taken an increasingly
larger role in Verona devel-
opment in the past couple
of years and will inhabit the
largest portion of the new
building, at about 10,000
square feet. Slaby, the compa-
ny president, lives in Verona
and coaches youth football
here.
Another big chunk of the
building will house Com-
mercial Recreation Special-
ists, which will be expanding
from its home in the Bruce
Street Industrial Park to a
7,000-square-foot buildout.
CRS president Ron Romens,
a Town of Verona resident,
was on hand for the brief cer-
emony.
Two other tenants taking
about 2,500 square feet each
will be Budget Blinds – one
of three existing Madison-
area franchises of the national
chain – and Cooper Plumb-
ing, which will expand from
its space on Horizon Drive.
That leaves about 6,000
square feet for two other ten-
ants, Slaby told the Press on
Monday, adding that current
discussions involve compa-
nies involved in the build-
ing trades. And, as Reinke
told the small crowd earlier
that morning, that’s only the
beginning.
“This is the first of many
projects we’ve got planned,”
Reinke said at Monday’s
groundbreaking, adding that
there could be “four, five or
six” this year alone.
If true, that could help the
development pick up some
of the pace that it has lost in
its race against the clock as
it relates to the tax-increment
financing district it’s located
on.
The TIF district, which also
includes Verona Technology
Park to the south, was cre-
ated in 2000 and must close
by 2023, so Reinke’s por-
tion is getting a bit of a late
start. Reinke bought the land
more than a decade ago, and
he and city leaders could not
agree on its use until 2009.
Since then, the development
has been fraught with delays,
some internal, some external
and some just a normal, but
slow part of the process.
Three years ago, the city
cleared the way for the park’s
first construction by approv-
ing a developer agreement
with a $6 million TIF pack-
age. Only $1.7 million of that
has been spent so far, with
the city installing utility lines
along Whalen Road in 2011
and then reworking the deal
in 2012 to change the collat-
eral and adjust the financing
structure.
Liberty Park needs to gen-
erate property value quickly
to avoid penalties in its deal
with the city, which requires
$16.6 million in increased
taxable value – known as
increment – by its next valu-
ation date, Jan. 1, 2015. The
change in the land value
from agriculture will account
for some of that, but the two
buildings going in this year
could be a stretch to meet
that number, particularly
if one is not finished, as is
likely.
Reinke told the Press on
Monday there could be a
third flex building closer to
County Highway M this year
that would have retail spaces
on the bottom and office on
the top, and that a hotel is
also possible in that same
area.
“Now that we’ve got the
road in, now it seems like
tenants are coming out of the
woodwork,” he said.
The long winter remains
an issue, however, with Rein-
ke estimating a November
opening for its first building
a best-case scenario. It hasn’t
just been the visible weather,
which finally eased up a cou-
ple of weeks ago, but the fact
that there is still quite a bit of
frost in the ground.
“The ground issue has
been problematic for any
builder this year,” Reinke
said. “Those big piles (of dirt
on the site) are frozen in the
middle.”
Slaby, who got a broker’s
license in November, was
involved in one of the newer
Verona buildings, the chiro-
practic office that opened last
year on West Verona Ave-
nue, but he also has seen two
other projects on East Vero-
na Avenue run into snags.
He told the Press last week
he got a broker’s license in
November and was happy
Liberty Park has been keep-
ing him busy with it.
“We’re really excited
about this,” he said.

Town of Verona
Officials look to future at annual meeting
New town hall, municipal court on horizon
SCOTT GIRARD
Unified Newspaper Group
The Town of Ver o-
na’s annual meeting was
uneventful as far as imme-
diate decisions, but the
town’s leadership and citi-
zens in attendance outlined
some changes that could
come in the future.
That includes a potential
new town hall location, as
the current spot is “really
an island within the city (of
Verona),” said town plan-
ner/administrator Amanda
Arnold.
“The town board is inter-
ested in getting us off that
island,” Arnold told the
Press.
She said such a move
woul d ha ve be ne f i t s
beyond simple location,
though, including the abili-
ty to provide more services
such as brush collection
or mulch and getting pub-
lic works vehicles to the
town roads they’re meant
for more quickly, instead
of spending a mile driving
on city roads to get to the
town roads.
Arnold said the 20 or
so citizens in attendance
agreed with Town Chair
David Combs that a new
hall would make sense.
The pot ent i al move
doesn’t have a timeline or
a site yet, Arnold noted, so
it’s likely a long-term proj-
ect.
The town is also “very
close” to joining a munici-
pal court with the towns of
Middleton and Madison,
Arnold said, and “there
was some support in the
crowd for that.”
Arnold said the town
currently uses the Dane
County Sheriff’s Office
for police service, but sher-
iff’s officers aren’t always
available. The partnership
would involve having a
sheriff’s officer dedicated
to town patrol for around
eight hours per week, said
town clerk John Wright.
“Right now we use the
Dane Count y Sheri ff’s
Office, but if they’re busy
they’re not dedicated to
us,” Arnold said.
The meeting also fea-
t ured “general di scus-
sions” about how the town
handles negotiations and
discussions with the cities
of Fitchburg and Verona
as they develop around the
town.
“We’re continuing to
work with our neighbors
and trying to find some sort
of balance there,” Arnold
said of Combs’ message to
concerned citizens.

Admit When You’re Wrong
One of the barriers to good relations is when people dig their
heels in and refuse to admit when they are wrong. Many an
argument could be shortened by the offending party simply
admitting his offense and sincerely asking for forgiveness.
In fact, many arguments could be avoided by apologizing
or admitting ahead of time that you might be wrong. It is
always a good disarming tactic to let people know that you
could be wrong about something, or to offer your apologies
in advance for what you are about to do. Moreover, people
who refuse to apologize even when they know they are
wrong, or who offer insincere apologies are seen as pride-
filled, dishonest, and not interested in smooth relations.
If you want to get along with your family, friends and col-
leagues, be quick to admit when you’re wrong. This advice
also applies to your relationship with God. That is, admit to
God when you have sinned and accept His forgiveness just
as readily.
–Christopher Simon via Metro News Service
Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but
he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.

Softball
Boys lacrosse
Keyes heads to DII Wheeling Jesuit
VAHS senior signs
National Letter of Intent to
play lacrosse
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
Senior Verona Area High School
boys lacrosse midfielder Kenny
Keyes is a four-year varsity player,
but he didn’t even think about play-
ing in college until the end of his
junior year.
Keyes, who became the first Vero-
na Area High School lacrosse player
to sign a National Letter of Intent
last Wednesday to play at Wheeling
(W.V.) Jesuit University, found out
colleges were looking at him when
he went to a Ohio State University
lacrosse camp last summer.
Keyes played in a few games at the
camp, despite not being on a camp
roster. He was asked to play in the
local All-Star game and scored two
goals and picked up an assist.
It was then that Keyes realized he
could play college lacrosse.
“I just knew that I could play and
compete on the East Coast,” said
Keyes, who will major in business/
sports management.
The choice to pick Wheeling Jesuit
came after seeing the competitive
program and talking to coach Kevin
Dugan.
Dugan just got back from a mission
where he taught children in Africa
how to play lacrosse, and Keyes said
he likes that Dugan is both a deep
thinker and spiritual.
It also doesn’t hurt that the program
is having one of its best seasons.
Wheeling Jesuit was ranked in the
top 10 in the nation in Division II this
season and is 9-1 overall.
“I always wanted to play in a
tough conference, and the main thing
I looked for in a college was that I
wanted to find a challenge to push me
to the limit,” Keyes said.
Prepared at Verona
Keyes has played for the VAHS
boys lacrosse team since he was
a freshman and had collected 96
groundballs, 22 goals and seven
assists for the Wildcats.
He also has 43 faceoff wins (not
including Tuesday’s 9-8 win over
Middleton).
He was on the 2011 state champi-
onship team as a freshman, helped
Verona go to the state semifinals as
a sophomore and also helped Verona
finish state runner-up last season as a
junior.
So far in 2014, Keyes has helped
the Wildcats to a 5-0 start. Keyes and
the rest of the team have high hopes
to not just get back to the state title
game, but to also win it.
“I am just trying to win a state
championship for the team,” he said.
“If we won this year, it would be
another state title to build up the pro-
gram.”
Keyes also mentioned having goals
to make the all-conference team and
scoring two to three goals per game
in his final year.

Persistent rains dogged the
Verona softball team last week,
forcing the postponed of two Big
Eight Conference games and a
non-conference cancellation.
Verona, Turner (canceled)
Monday’s game at Beloit Turn-
er was canceled due to persistent
rains. While Verona head coach
Todd Anderson said the team
would like to makeup the game
he acknowledged it might not be
possible for the Wildcats to do so.
Verona, Middleton (PPD)
Twenty-four hours later and the
story was the same for the Wild-
cats on Tuesday when Verona
was supposed to host Middleton.
That game has been moved to 5
p.m. Friday.
Verona, La Follette (PPD)
Earlier in the week the Wildcats
saw last Thursday’s game against
Madison La Follette at Olbrich
Park postponed. That game has
been rescheduled for May 5.
Verona 11, Parker 0 (5 inn.)
The only game Verona man-
aged to get in last week was yet
another convincing conference
win over a Janesville school.
Three days after shutting out
Craig, senior ace Emma Ray
tossed a one-hit shutout in last
Friday’s make-up game at the
Janesville Youth Sports Complex.
Ray struck out 11 and walked
no one in the 11-0 blowout over
five innings.
Verona scored two runs in the
top of the first inning and kept
rolling from there, adding two
more runs in the second and three
more in the third. The visitors
eventually closed out the 10-run
victory with another run in the
fourth and fifth.
Bea Kealy and Kori Keyes dou-
bled, while Alyssa Erdman tripled
for the Wildcats.
Breanna Diehls tossed three
innings for Parker, allowing four
runs on four hits and five walks.
Johnson took the loss for the
Vikings, giving up seven runs on
three walks and four hits.
Verona, which is ranked fourth
on the Wisconsin Fastpitch Soft-
ball Coaches Association Divi-
sion 1 state poll, will not play
Xavier in the Poynette Jamboree
tournament as originally sched-
uled. Instead, the Wildcats will
makeup their conference game
against Middleton.
Union Grove, an honorable
mention on the most recent WFS-
CA poll, will be Verona’s oppo-
nent in Poynette on Saturday at
11 a.m.
The Wildcats face Westosha
Central later that day at 3 p.m.
Cats win two
Big 8 games
last week
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
The Verona Area High
School girls soccer team went
2-1 last week with two Big
Eight Conference wins to
improve to 4-2 overall (2-0
conference).
Verona continues the sea-
son at Madison La Follette at
7 p.m. Thursday and it travels
to the University of Wiscon-
sin-Eau Claire for an invita-
tional May 2-3. Times are to
be announced.
The Wildcats finish up the
week at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May
6, against Madison Memorial
at Reddan Soccer Park.
Verona 7, Craig 1
Verona exploded for 35
shots on goal last Thursday
in a 7-1 win over Janesville
Craig.
The host Wildcats scored
five times in the first half,
led by senior forward Felicia
Retrum. Retrum picked up the
first three goals of the game,
the first with an assist from
sophomore midfielder Emily
Krogman and the last with an
assist credited to sophomore
forward Ellery Rourke.
Retrum also picked up an
assist on a Rourke goal in the
second half. Krogman add-
ed two goals, with the first
having an assist by Rourke.
Senior goalie Madison West-
fall finished with two saves.
DSHA 1, Verona 0
The Wildcats fell 1-0 to
Divine Savior Holy Angel last
Friday.
The lone goal came in the
75th minute by sophomore
midfielder Emily Crevoiserat
with an assist to sophomore
forward Delany Hughes.
Westfall finished with 10
saves. Sophomore goalie
Olivia Myszewski had eight
for DSHA.
Verona 1, Sun Prairie 0
Verona traveled to Sun
Prairie Tuesday and won 1-0.
Krogman scored an unas-
sisted goal in the 55th minute
and Westfall finished with
three saves. Sun Prairie’s
Courtney Craighead had four
saves.

is really remarkable. … Peo-
ple really gravitated toward
that.”
Starstruck
In the course of just a few
weeks, Nettles-Bey has met
two of the biggest names in
professional sports.
She had her wish to meet
NBA All-Star LeBron James
fulfilled March 29 when the
Miami Heat visited the Mil-
waukee Bucks, and she has
now met Aaron Rodgers,
who presented her with the
award Thursday.
Even though she had hung
out with the entire Miami
Heat team during warmups
and got her face on ESPN,
Nettles-Bey still was clearly
starstruck being next to Rod-
gers and looking out at the
Wisconsin men’s basketball
Final Four team.
“Aaron Rodgers was just
wonderful with her,” Murphy
said. “He spent time talking
to her and sat by her on the
couch in the front row a little
bit and really made her feel
special.”
The ceremony honored
athletes like Super Bowl
champion quarterback Rus-
sell Wilson and NFL hope-
ful Chris Borland (both for-
mer University of Wisconsin
football players) and Green
Bay Packers running back
Eddy Lacy. It honored UW-
Whitewater football coach
Lance Leipold and NAS-
CAR driver Matt Kenseth.
All are popular names in
Wisconsin, and now, so is
Nettles-Bey.
“I couldn’t imagine any-
one else getting the award, to
be honest with you,” Murphy
said. “There isn’t even any-
one else in the conversation.”
A humble smile
Net t l es- Bey br ought
the basketball community
together this past season,
and young and old Verona
residents came out to see her
play.
Despite being humble
through all the media cover-
age and granted wishes to
help her get through her fight,
the night was special to Net-
tles-Bey, shown by the large
smile she had on her face,
Murphy said.
“I am so proud of her. I
was grinning ear-to-ear too,”
Murphy said. “That is why
we coach. It is for the kids,
and to see her get an award
like this is really special. I am
glad to be a part of it.”

Clutch hits don’t come in
shutout loss to Parker
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
The Verona Area High School baseball
team hosted Janesville Parker last Friday
but the offense was unable to get going in
a 4-0 loss.
It was the first time Verona didn’t have
a lead in all season, but there were some
chances.
The Wildcats stranded five runners
in scoring position, including the bases
loaded with one out in the fifth inning
and runners on second and third and one
out in the sixth.
Head coach Brad D’Orazio said it was
just a matter of not being able to get the
clutch hit, but he feels confident they will
come as the season progresses.
Juni or short st op Davi d Rogowski
(2-for-3) singled to center field to lead
off the sixth, and sophomore catcher
Ben Rortvedt followed with a walk. Both
players moved up after a groundout, but
no one was able to score.
Verona had a similar chance in the
fifth. Knueppel singled to center, and
junior designated hitter Connor Volker
reached on an error. Senior Ryan Pyn-
nonen sacrificed both runners over, and
senior second baseman Tony Granick
was hit by a pitch to load the bases.
However, senior center fielder Mitch
Flora grounded in a double play to end
the inning. Flora led off the fourth with
a double but was thrown out at third on a
passed ball.
One thing D’Orazio felt was great in
the game was the Wildcats’ pitching.
Sophomore starter Keaton Knueppel
and senior reliever John Moynihan both
excelled against a Parker team expected
to compete at the top of the conference
this year.
Knueppel allowed two earned runs on
seven hits in five innings. Only two of
those hits were really hit hard and that
was from Parker’s Cullen Osmond, who
was 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, a run
scored and an RBI. Knueppel also struck
out three and walked one.
Moyni han f i ni shed t he f i nal t wo
innings. He allowed one earned run on
two hits and a walk.
D’Orazio said that the pitching will be
huge this season if the Wildcats are going
to have success.
Parker’s Darin Brewster pitched all
seven innings and allowed four hits. He
struck out three and walked three.
Verona hosts Madison West at 5 p.m.
Thursday, Oregon at 5 p. m. Fri day,
Janesville Craig at 11 a.m. Saturday and
Beloit Memorial at 5 p.m. Tuesday, May
6.
Verona, Milton (canceled)
The Wildcats’ game against Milton was
canceled so the Parker game could be
moved to Friday after Thursday rains.
Verona, Madison East (PPD)
Verona was supposed to travel to War-
ner Park to take on Madison East last
Tuesday, but rainy conditions and wet
fields forced the postponement of the
game. No makeup date was announced by
the Verona Press’ Tuesday deadline.

Cats look to improve short game
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
The Verona Area High School boys golf
team has been around the 330s in most meets
this season, including Saturday’s Waunakee
Invitational at the Meadows of Sixmile Creek
(337).
Head coach Jon Rebholz said he sees the
possibilities of the team with senior John
Tackett already shooting in the 70s this sea-
son and seven others showing the potential to
be in the 70s, but he said the short game must
improve to get consistently lower.
“You talk about getting up-and-down with
one chip and one putt,” Rebholz said. “We
struggled with that, and to be honest on a
day like today, if you are chipping next to the
green – whether it is rainy or cold or whatever
– it doesn’t make a difference.
“We have to get better around the green
and get more efficient by the green and some
of the older guys need to start stepping up
more.”
Rebholz added that the solution will come
with more practice and more confidence. The
Wildcats take two days a week to practice
their short game.
“By putting in a little bit of time and
practicing with a purpose, you would think
we will become more effective around the
green,” Rebholz said. “It will take time for the
guys to improve at that, and when they see the
results, the confidence will grow.”
Verona travels to Portage Country Club for
an invite at 10 a.m. Friday and goes to Lake
Wisconsin Country Club at 11 a.m. Saturday
for an invite. Verona finishes the week at 2
p.m. Tuesday, May 6, in a triple dual against
Sun Prairie and Beloit Memorial at Sun
Prairie Country Club.
La Follette triple dual
The Wildcats (337) traveled to Yahara
Golf Course April 22 and split with Middle-
ton (302) and Madison La Follette (382) in a
triple dual.
Tackett shot a 73 to lead Verona, while
senior Riley Schmitz shot an 84. Sophomore
Nick Meland followed with an 86, and senior
John Stevens finished the scoring with an 87.
Waunakee invite
Verona finished eighth out of 18 teams last
Saturday.
Meland led the Wildcats with an 80. Tack-
ett shot an 83, while Schmitz followed with
an 84. Junior Joey McCormick finished the
scoring with a 90.
Lodi won the invite with a 323, while Edg-
erton finished second with a 324. Waunakee’s
first team was third with a 328.
Janesville triple dual
The Wildcats (361) traveled to Janesville
Country Club Monday and split with Janes-
ville Parker (360) and Janesville Craig (382).
Meland shot an 85, while Tackett followed
with an 86. Schmitz finished with a 94, and
freshman Will Zunker finished the scoring
with a 96.
Parker was led by John Milner and Bobby
Wyss who each shot 85s, while Craig was led
by Nolan Moran who shot an 84.
“On days like this, it is going to be the
toughest golfers that win, not necessarily the
best,” Rebholz said. “You just have to be
mentally tough and know you are not going to
shoot as good as you normally would.”
Verona edges Parker in dual
JEREMY JONES
Sports Editor
Senior Aylise Grossen-
bacher-McGlamery took the
300 hurdles in 52.7 seconds
Tuesday and later capped the
Wildcats’ 75-66 victory over
Janesville Parker by help-
ing the 4x400 relay team of
Nicole Noltemeyer, Emily
Ford and Asia Christoffel to
victory in 4:36.4.
Freshman Sie’anna Mitch-
ell (13.5) and senior Lexy
Richardson (28.0) won the
100 and 200-meter dash,
respectively. They then joined
freshman Kristi Larsen and
sophomore Lexy Alt to take
the 4x100 relay in 53.7.
The underclassmen con-
tinued to rack up points for
Verona as sophomore Kirsten
Queoff cleared 8 feet to win
the pole vault.
Freshman Kailey Olson
then claimed the long jump
(15 feet) and high jump (4-8),
while fellow underclassmen
Preston Ploc added the 400
(1:10.6).
Parker invite
Senior Dajah Jones helped
the Wildcats dominate the
sprint events once against
last Friday as Verona brought
home the 16
th
annual Janes-
ville Parker Invitational title.
Jones was the first of three
Wildcats in the top four of
the 100-meter dash, winning
the event in 13.33, as Verona
finished with 233 points – 19
ahead of the Big Eight Con-
ference rival Vikings.
Jones teamed up with Shan-
non Kerrigan, Richardson
and Alt to add the 400-meter
relay title in 53.20. Jones later
joined Mitchell, Larsen and
Richardson to help Verona
secure the 4x200 meter relay
in a meet-best 1:50.20 – more
than six-and-a-half seconds
ahead of Janesville Parker.
Mitchell (27.82) and Rich-
ardson added a 1-2 finish in
the 200, while Larson fin-
ished fourth.
Junior Hannah Miller led
Waukesha West’s Libby
Horan to the finish line of
the 400 by five-hundredths in
1:04.47.
Olson edged teammate
Stephanie Lease on attempts
to win the high jump at 4-8.
Meanwhile, fellow freshman
Ellie Heinzen leapt 15-1 to
pace a 1-2-3 sweep by Vero-
na in the long jump.
Verona travels to the com-
petitive Lake Geneva Invita-
tional at 4 p.m. Friday.

the Verona boys to an 86-60

hurdles (42.8) and made the
school’s all-time list despite
wet conditions, posting a PR.
The Wildcats posted anoth-
er head-turning time in the
4x200 relay where Carson

Zingler and Cameron Tin-
dall posted a 1:33 despite one

Wildcats bury competition at East invite

Verona boys tennis went undefeated last
weekend despite only having eight players for
their final two matches at the Madison East
invitational.
“We were missing a lot of players due to
the band state competition in Platteville, and
our JV were hosting a tournament Saturday
at the VAHS courts,” head coach Rick Engen
said.
As a result, Verona played all of Saturday’s
matches without a No. 3 doubles team, half of
its 1 doubles team (Johnny Yan) and without
No. 1 singles player Phillip Rudnitzky.
Jackson Hutchcroft went 2-0 on Saturday at
4 singles, while he and Yan went 2-0 on Fri-
day at 1 doubles.
Rudnitzky paced a dominant singles lineup
early Friday afternoon as the Wildcats cruised
to a 6-1 win over Stoughton.
Verona followed that up with the first of
three-straight 4-3 wins, knocking off Monona
Grove later Friday afternoon.
The Wildcats knocked off Madison East
4-3 in the championship match.
Sophomore Alex Pletta added a pair of vic-
tories over Pewaukee and the host Purgolders
on Saturday to help Verona win both duals
4-3.

before it is filed with the
court. If approved, the city
would have a 45 or 90-day
window to file an appeal.
No action was taken in
closed session Monday,
Burns said, so it is unclear
whether the council will
choose to appeal the ruling.
The firefighters union
had filed the lawsuit in
December while the city
was in the midst of a hir-
ing process that would have
changed the structure of the
department. On Dec. 16,
Anderson issued a tempo-
rary restraining order that
kept the city from making
employment offers to any
full-time firefighters in the
new department – regard-
less of whether they were
outside hires or had worked
for the district.
The city had sought to
dismiss the case as early as
January, arguing that the
city-run department was a
different employer from the
Verona Fire District that
had been jointly overseen
by the city and town until
Dec. 31. The union con-
tended that while the name
was di fferent , t he geo-
graphic area and services
provided were substantially
similar.
The move to restructure
the department followed a
decision by the town to dis-
solve the fire district.
With the district at one
point, now the city, plan-
ning for a new $10 million
fire station, the town would
have been responsible for
half the cost. That price tag
was too much for the town,
so it sought to leave the dis-
trict and form a long-term
contract for services with
the city.
In court last week, attor-
neys for the city argued that
the city had a responsibility
to re-evaluate the staffing
as it formed the new depart-
ment in order to provide the
possible services for the
city.
Judge Anderson said the
city saw the dissolution
as an “opportunity” rather
than a “responsibility” to
change the department and
possibly hire new firefight-
ers, and that that left the
current employees without
much protection.
“On this record, it comes
across that the word oppor-
tunity is an appropriate
wor d, ” Ander son sai d.
“Thi s i s t hei r opport u-
nity to restructure the fire
department and who works
there – which is a really
big thing that people bar-
gain for. That’s probably
the most important thing
that employees bargain for
– that is, the right to work
there.”
City attorneys argued
Thursday that they believed
the city wasn’t trying to
force out the union and that
the new full-time firefight-
ers would likely join Local
311 and collectively bar-
gain with the city.
St i l l , Ander son sai d
those types of assumptions
offered little comfort to the
current employees who had
bargained for their employ-
ment with the Verona Fire
District.
“There’s not hi ng t hat
they can take home if I rule
(in the city’s favor) to say,
‘We are in any way protect-
ed,’” Anderson said. “All
they did was collectively
bargain, which was their
right; they formed a union,
which was their right; they
entered into an agreement
… and it said this agree-
ment will remain in effect
unless somebody asks to
renegotiate it by the end of
June – nobody did.
“They’re just being cast
about on the winds of this
entity change.”
Burns said no specific
date had been set for when
the council would discuss
the lawsuit again, but a
meeting would likely occur
within the next six weeks.
Lawsuit: No action taken at
council Monday night

superintendent Dean Gor-
rell explained Thursday
to the Press that the hiring
committee had decided to
repost the position to get
more applicants.
“Good candidates for
sure, al l of t hem, but
you’ve got to find the right
fit,” Gorrell said.
There were 108 appli-
cants for the job, and a
committee that included
parents and district admin-
istrators narrowed that field
to four finalists, including a
current VASD administra-
tor.
Those four finalists were:
• Paul Chr i st i ansen,
associate principal at Fort
Atkinson Middle School
• Sandy Eskrich, associ-
ate principal at Savanna
Oaks Middle School
• Mary Kramer, associate
principal at Oregon High
School
• Todd DeBruin, princi-
pal at Farnsworth Middle
School in Sheboygan
Gorrell said all of the
candidates were well quali-
fied, but that the process
brings out certain charac-
teristics that make someone
a good fit for a position.
“There’s an assumption
of qualification level…but
then the vetting process,
the interviews, (through)
that we kind of get a sense
for what that fit is,” he said.
The deadline for new
applications is 4 p.m. on
May 12, and Gorrell said
he expects to have a candi-
date to the board for final
approval by the June 2
board meeting.
Commi t t ee member s
who served on the commit-
tee through the first round
have been invited to par-
ticipate in the process again
if they choose, Gorrell said,
and those who applied in
the first round do not have
to reapply to be considered.
