Success
and
struggle
TIF districts bring a mix
of results, opinions
BILL LIVICK
Unified Newspaper Group
Looking at the numbers, two of
Stoughton’s three tax-increment
financing districts don’t appear to
be doing very well.
But city finance director Laurie
Sullivan told the Hub those num-
bers are misleading.
Collectively, the city’s three
TIF districts show an increase of
$769,800 from 2012 to 2013.
The Hub decided to take a
look at the health of the city’s
TIF districts after the newspaper
published a letter from city resi-
dent Roger Thompson pointing
out that TIF 5 shows a loss of
$2.7 million in value from 2012
to 2013. Auditors will present
‘One of
a kind’
Sampson plans
to deliver 70th
Gettysburg Address
BILL LIVICK
Unified Newspaper Group
Di gni f i ed, gr aci ous, and
eccentric in a good way.
That’s how Stoughton resi-
dents have come to think of
Carl Sampson – the tall man in
a three-piece suit who undoubt-
edly has walked more miles in
the city than anyone.
He’s regarded as Stoughton’s
elder statesman. So it’s only fit-
ting than on Monday, May 26,
Sampson will deliver the Get-
tysburg Address at the city’s
Memorial Day ceremony at
Mandt Park – for the 70th con-
secutive year.

Carl was first asked to
recite President Abraham
Lincoln’s famous two-min-
ute oratory when he was
a high school junior, and
he’s been asked to repeat
that performance every year
since 1944.
“A high school boy used
t o gi ve i t every year, ”
Sampson recalled in an
interview with the Hub.
“I did it when I was a
junior, and the following
year they thought I did it so
well they asked me to do it
again – and then again and
again, and again,” he said,
with a laugh. “They must
have liked me because they
kept asking me to do it. I do
consider it an honor.”
Sampson, who turns 88
on June 16, is a lifelong city
resident who still lives in
the house in which he grew
up on Hillside Avenue.
He’s never driven a car and
doesn’t even know how.
And because he’s walked
almost exclusively to get
around, almost everyone in
Stoughton knows who he is.
It’s hard to miss his lanky
frame, always dressed in
that suit.
Another thing about Carl:
He eats most of his meals in
a restaurant. He frequents
the Koffee Kup and the
Main Street Kitchen, along
with others.
Another place he vis-
its regularly is the public
library, where he loves to
read newspapers. “I read
the Hub once a week and I
read the State Journal every
day,” Sampson said. “I read
them from front to back;
everything seems to be of
interest.
“Most of the ads aren’t
too interesting,” he added,
“but the rest of the paper is
very interesting.”
Sa mp s o n h a s b e e n
staying at the Nazareth
House since early Decem-
ber, so he’s not been around
hi s usual haunt s much.
People have noticed his
absence.
Tri sh Gul set h, who’s
owned and operated the
Kof f ee Kup wi t h her
husband, Ken, for the past
25 years, said Carl often
hasn’t had to pay for his
meals.
“He came in almost every
night,” she said. “A lot of
the customers knew who he
was, and in their kind hearts
would always quietly buy
his meal whenever he was
here. People would do that
because he’s so well known
in the community.”
Gul set h offered some
other insights about Carl:
He’s fri endl y but very
reserved.
“He’s kind of a personal
person, but yet to himself,”
she said, adding that he’s
“pleasant and kind.”
When Sampson sits down
at a table in the restaurant,
he al ways removes hi s
wristwatch and places it
where he can keep track of
the time. He always drink
milk with his meal and usu-
ally has ice cream for des-
sert.
“People know that he’s a
very distinguished person
in the community and they
take care of him,” Gulseth
observed. “We take care of
our elders. He is one of a
kind.”
‘No need’ for a car
Sampson’s father, born
in 1883, had also lived
in Stoughton all his life.
Carl’s mother was from
Janesville. Along with their
one son, the Sampsons also
had a daughter, who’s now
deceased.
Carl never married.
“I’ve run out of rela-
tives,” he said. “All the rest
are friends. I graduated in
1945, and so many of my
classmates are deceased.”
After high school, he
landed a job at the Badger
Theater, across from the
city Post Office. He did
everything from running
the film projectors to taking
tickets.
After that, he worked for
a long time at a bookstore
in Madison. He used to take
the train to get to work and
back. Once train service
ended in Stoughton, he rode
a Greyhound bus.
Like a lot of things from
his past, that, too, has end-
ed.
“Now I’m isolated unless
someone will give me a
ride,” Carl said. “If I really
have to go to the doctor in
Madison or something like
that, there’s always some-
body who will take me.”
His most recent job was
working at St. Vincent de
Paul, which he left when he
retired at age 80.
Carl said aside from a
recent setback, which he
didn’t want addressed in
print, his health has always
been good. He figures that
has something to do with all
the walking he’s done over
the years.
“Walking is good for
everybody,” he said. “For
me it was a necessity, when
it was 20 degrees below or
120 degrees above.
“I never even applied
for a driver’s license,” he
added. “There was no need,
really.”
Stoughton was a small
community of about 4,000
when he was growing up,
Carl said. He could easily
walk from one end of town
to the other.
Mental exercise
Sampson’s days of long
walks are about over, he
said. But just as he has kept
fit for many years by walk-
ing everywhere, he has kept
his mind sharp, too.
He is quick to point out
that he doesn’t read the
Gettysburg Address, he
recites it – and he always
has.
“I’l l keep reci t i ng i t
unless I get Alzheimer’s
and can’t remember it,” he
said, with his characteristi-
cally mild laugh.
“It’s a wonderful piece
of literature. Lincoln was
always one of my favorite
people.”
Carl said he’s always
loved to study history –
American history as well as
world history.
When he was in school,
students used to have to
memorize poetry and prose,
which is how he learned the
Gettysburg Address.
Sampson, who has an
encyclopedic knowledge of
the city’s history, is not sure
if kids memorize things
in school much anymore,
because they’re learning on
computers.
“We di dn’t have any
computers,” he noted.
A man of faith
Local realtor Larry Eifert
grew up in Stoughton and
said he’s known Carl “since
I was old enough to recog-
nize people.”
In t he past coupl e of
years, however, he’s gotten
to know the man on a more
personal basis.
Anyone wel l i nt o hi s
80s is going to occasion-
ally need a hand maintain-
ing a house and property.
And Eifert helped Sampson
when his furnace went out
and some pipes froze and
burst a few years ago.
“I would do things like
put in his A/C in the sum-
mer and take it out in the
fal l , ” Ei fert sai d. “We
installed an outside light on
his porch, and we fixed up
the stairs in his basement.”
He not e d t ha t Ca r l
“remembers everything and
everyone,” including the
Gettysburg Address.
Eifert said in addition to
Carl’s “great mind,” he’s a
man of faith.
“Every time we talked
he’d say, ‘What are you?’
And I’d say, ‘a follower of
Jesus,’” Eifert recalled. “It
brings a smile to his face.
He really embodies what
Jesus told us to do: to love
everybody.”
In his own way, “that’s
what Carl kind of does,”
Eifert said. “He treats peo-
ple the way he wants to be
treated, and he does that
even if they don’t treat him
well. That’s really the defi-
nition of Carl.”
Eifert said he tries to
emulate Sampson’s gentle-
ness and kindness.
“He’s an amazing man,”
he said. UN348705

Police to step up seat belt
enforcement laws
The Stoughton Police
Department will increase its
seat belt enforcement dur-
ing the Click It or Ticket
campaign.
The campaign, which
lasts from May 19 to June 1,
focuses on helping drivers
understand the importance
of wearing a seat belt.
“We don’ t want t o
stop and ticket drivers or
passengers for not wear-
ing a safety belt,” Sgt. Pat-
rick Frisch said in a press
release. “But we also never
want to tell families that
their son, daughter, par-
ent or other loved one was
ejected from a vehicle or
tossed around violently
inside it during a crash
because they did not buckle
up.”
City of Stoughton
City to hire new HR director
Alders unanimously agree with mayor’s
choice
BILL LIVICK
Unified Newspaper Group
The Common Coun-
cil last week unanimously
approved Mayor Donna
Ol son’s request t o hi re
the city’s first Director of
Human Resources/ Ri sk
Manager.
Amy Jo Gillingham is
expected to begin working
for the city in late June. She
will earn an annual salary
of $63,000, with full ben-
efits.
Olson said Gillingham
was selected in the second
round of accepting applica-
tions and conducting inter-
views. She had applied a
little late for the first round,
Olson said, and when the
hiring committee wasn’t
satisfied with the first group
of candidates, Gillingham’s
application was near the top
of the pack.
Olson said she was an
obvious choice and will be
a good fit with the city.
“I’m exci t ed t o have
her joining our leadership
team,” Olson said.
Gillingham is a Village of
Oregon resident who served
as Di r ect or of Human
Resources and Adminis-
tration at Shared Medical
Services in Cottage Grove
from 2004 to February this
year.
Prior to that, she held a
few positions at Electronic
Theatre Controls (ETC) in
Middleton, where she was
Director of Administration
from 2001-04.
Gillingham holds a Bach-
elor of Science degree from
Warren National Univer-
sity at Cheyenne, Wyo., and
an Associates of Applied
Sciences-Marketing degree
from MATC.
She wi l l be t he fi rst
Human Resources direc-
tor in the city, after the
Common Council last year
approved creating the HR
position and a reorganiza-
tion of staffing at City Hall.
In other business:
• The counci l unani -
mously approved the 2014
special assessments plan,
which will replace side-
walk, curb and gutter, and
some dr i veway apr ons
on parts of almost a doz-
en streets in the city and
charge property owners for
the cost of improvements.
The council adopted a
resolution stipulating that
the amount assessed against
any parcel “shall not be
greater than the benefits”
that a property derives from
the work.
The work will begin in
late June or early July at
properties on Church Street,
Forton Street, Sundt Lane,
Oakwood Court, Smedal
Drive, Palmer Drive, Lin-
coln Avenue, Chapin Lane,
East Main Street, North
Page St reet and Ri dge
Street.
Street and Parks Depart-
ment director Karl Man-
the said Church Street and
Ridge Street will receive
the most improvements.
Most of Church Street will
be widened and angle park-
ing on the street will be
eliminated, he said.
Manthe said the work
planned for this summer is
nothing out of the ordinary.
“It’s a typical year,” he
said. “It’s our basic pulveri-
zation project for most of it.
Some are a full reconstruc-
tion project like Ridge and
Church Street.”
The city allows property
owners to pay for most
of the work on or before
Nov. 1. If a property has
more than $200 worth of
improvements, the prop-
erty owner can makes pay-
ments in five installments,
at 3.75 percent interest. If
the assessment is more than
$1,500, a property owner
can make 10 annual install-
ments at the same interest
rate. The council also has
the ability to defer pay-
ments.
• The council approved
the annexation of 19.5 acres
north of Kettle Park West.
The proposed annexation
area is along the east side
Hwy. 51, between Jackson
St reet and Bucki ngham
Road. The site is home to
Dane County Auto, Stark
Automotive and a vacant
car deal ershi p nort h of
Jackson Street.
A small sliver of land
near Jackson Street will be
transferred to the city for
future road improvements
on Jackson Street. Busi-
nesses will be able to use
Hult Road for access. The
city will make an effort to
bring water and sewer ser-
vice to the area.
The ci t y wi l l col l ect
about $10,725 related to
costs for bring the proper-
ties into the Urban Services
Area. The property own-
ers will be assessed for any
future sewer and water con-
nections that benefit their
properties. Costs for those
projects could be about
$775,000, city documents
show. Some of the costs
would also be assessed to
Kettle Park West develop-
ers.
Hougan
resigns as
city clerk
City clerk Pili Hougan
resigned from her posi-
tion Tuesday morning
after being
promot ed
t o i t i n
January.
Hougan,
a 1 9 8 2

t on Hi gh
S c h o o l

ate, joined
the city in April 2006 as
a part-time reception-
ist. In January 2008, she
was promoted to deputy
clerk. Her sudden resig-
nation came as a surprise
to the staff working at
City Hall.
Mayor Donna Olson
said she and her staff are
“restructuring to make
things better here” at
City Hall, but declined to
comment further on Hou-
gan’s resignation.
Rewarding ‘great ideas’
SASD innovation grants may be a new trend
SCOTT DE LARUELLE
Unified Newspaper Group
From learning new tech-
nology to using movement
in the classroom to help
students’ achievement, the
Stoughton Area School Dis-
trict is looking to innovate.
At Monday night’s board
meeting, district superinten-
dent Tim Onsager announced
“Innovation Grant” funding
for pilot programs developed
by district teachers looking
for better ways to reach their
students, citing “some excep-
tional staff with some excep-
tional ideas.”
“We did (these) with the
premise that there are some
great ideas out there that if
our staff had a little bit extra
resources, we could pilot,
and they could try to give
back to the district,” he said.
“And it might be something
that affects the whole district
eventually.”
Four applications were
chosen from 14 submissions
by teachers to district offi-
cials. A Fox Prairie teaching
team of Cassie Perkins, Mary
Scott, Nancy Ahnnortwen,
Tara Hutchins and Trish Ror-
vig received $4,000 toward
a pilot program to enhance
learning by using things
like adjustable height desks
and exercise balls to replace
some of the students’ chairs.
“Research shows that
movement, when channeled
correctly, will enhance learn-
ing,” Onsager said. “The
hope is … these tools will
allow students to stimulate
their brains and allow to bet-
ter take in and process infor-
mation.”
Stoughton High School
family and consumer science
teacher Sarah Quinn received
$3,000 to increase student
engagement in cross-curricu-
lar learning.
“Students in culinary arts
are fascinated with shows
such as ‘Marcel’s Quantum
Kitchen,’ that illustrate how
professional chefs and food
scientists manipulate food
to create innovative and cut-
ting-edge dishes,” Onsager
said.
SHS science teacher Eric
Benedict received $1,200 to
develop technology to use
in the school and train other
teachers on using technology
in their classrooms.
“If staff is not comfortable
with the use of technology;
if they don’t know how to
integrate technology, these
devices just become expen-
sive toys,” Onsager said.
Fox Prairie Elementary
School kindergarten teacher
Courtney Woods received
$1,200 to attend the “Educa-
tion for Sustainability Insti-
tute” workshop this summer,
which includes training on
incorporating the next gen-
eration of science standards
into the classroom, and how
to use the schoolyard and
surrounding community to
make learning more hands-
on and inquiry-based.
Onsager said he would
like the teachers to return to
the school board in a year to
report on how the pilot pro-
grams went, “what worked
and what didn’t work.”
“That’s part of the Inno-
vat i on Grant s, because
sometimes failure is as big a
teacher as success,” he said.
“It is our hope that we can
award these grants every
year, and as our staff comes
up with innovative ideas, we
can tap into their strengths.”

Self-publishing worries
have become outdated
R
ichard MacDonald, the
director of the Stoughton
Public Library, was origi-
nally going to write a column
titled “Thumbs Down on Self-
Publishing.” When he attended
my creative writing session
on “Traditional Publishing vs.
Self-Publishing,” he changed his
mind and asked me to share my
thoughts instead.
It certainly
isn’t for every-
one, but some
authors will
find self-pub-
lishing more
appropriate than
going the tra-
ditional route.
It depends
mostly on how
you want to
go about your
career.
Before electronic publishing
and ebooks became popular,
self-publishing was a very risky
and expensive endeavor. Most
librarians and booksellers held a
strong anti self-publishing stance
because they saw so many writ-
ers getting scammed for thou-
sands of dollars.
E-publishing has created a new
arena for writers, however, and a
lot of those old conceptions are
now outdated.
• Concern 1: You’ll never
make any money self-publishing.
If authors publish in E-book
format only, there is no cost asso-
ciated with printing and shipping
books. That lowers the overhead,
which means more profit for the
books you do sell.
• Concern 2: Self-publishing
and vanity publishing are the
same thing.
There are still plenty of van-
ity press scammers out there,
but writers now have many
legitimate ways to pursue self-
publication.
A vanity press will promise
you fame and fortune if you just
keep writing them checks. Self-
publishing may cost you money
– but you decide how to spend
it and you receive goods or ser-
vices in return (a professionally-
designed cover, a well-edited
manuscript, advertisements, etc.).
• Concern 3: You’ll never
break out if you self-publish.
The average self-published
book may earn the author a mod-
est amount of money in sales.
Many books fizzle and burn out.
But some self-published
authors enjoy success – dedicated
fans, steady sales and attention
from major publishers.
• Concern 4: You need an edi-
tor and a publishing house to get
your book publication-ready.
There are many talented and
reputable freelance editors who
provide services for self-pub-
lished authors, as well as graphic
designers to create covers, for-
matters who prepare ebooks for
upload, and publicists to handle
advertising.
The main difference: tradition-
ally published authors receive
these services for free from their
publisher, while self-published
authors pay for it themselves.
• Concern 5: If you self-
publish, you won’t get as much
exposure as traditionally pub-
lished authors.
It is difficult to find review
sources for self-published books,
but word of mouth and discounts
from popular E-book retailers
may give self-published books
good exposure.
• Concern 6: Don’t expect to
see your self-published book in
bookstores or libraries.
This statement is still true.
Hundreds of thousands of self-
published books come out every
year, many of them poorly writ-
ten and poorly edited.
Librarians and bookstore buy-
ers simply don’t have the time or
resources to evaluate and select
self-published books. Instead,
they rely on a high volume of
customer requests or they will
purchase formerly self-published
books after they are picked up by
a traditional publisher.
No matter what path to pub-
lication you seek, spend time
in online writing forums and
become part of a professional
organization.
Mystery Writers of America,
Romance Writers of America and
the Society of Children’s Book
Writers and Illustrators are just
a few examples. Attend work-
shops, conferences and critique
sessions to hone your skills and
learn the basics of publishing.
The path to becoming a pub-
lished writer is not easy, no mat-
ter which route you take. Just
remember, if something sounds
too good to be true, it probably
is. Be cautious, do your home-
work and put in the hard work
that produces a well-edited book
people will want to read.

Stoughton Public Library offers

Services Librarian at the Stough-
ton Public Library, and has been

The Good News
Imagine a newscast every evening with head-
lines such as “Crime Is Down” and “Charitable
Giving Is Up” and “People Are Helping Others
Everywhere.” Miracle of Miracles, that is indeed
the case in many places around the world, but
you wouldn’t know it from watching the news.
But, perhaps one way to put all of this good
news in perspective is to realize that people
helping others is such a commonplace prac-
tice that it doesn’t make the news unless it’s
something really extraordinary. Likewise, the
millionaires and billionaires who give generously
have become so commonplace that they even
have their own club and well over a hundred
have signed onto a pledge, the so-called “Giving
Pledge,” which commits them to give away the
bulk of their fortunes. People who perform hor-
rific acts of cruelty or commit heinous crimes
are pretty much the exception to the rule of
people acting decently, and that is why their hei-
nous crimes make the news. It’s just too shock-
ing to ignore. So, perhaps we should remind
ourselves every day of the Good News that is all
around and spread the word to others.
- Christopher Simon via Metro News Service
From the fruit of his mouth a man eats what is
good, but the desire of the treacherous is for
violence.

information on the state
of the TIF districts to the
Common Council at a May
27 meeting.
During the same period, TIF
4 lost $800,900 in value,
according to figures provided
by the city.
TIF 3 – Business Park
North – is the only district
that increased in value that
year. That district opened
in 1992 with a base value of
$94,000. It was valued last
year at $20.1 million, an
increase of $4.3 million from
2012, when it was assessed
at $15,827,200.
The base value is the
assessment of taxable prop-
erty in the district at the time
it was established. Those
property taxes continue to
be paid to the four taxing
jurisdictions – the city, the
county, the school district
and MATC – during the life
of the TIF district. But any
increase in property value,
what’s known as the incre-
ment, is held in a separate
account to pay for the cost
of spending as laid out in the
TIF project plan.
TIF 4, a redevelopment
district downtown, still has a
strong increment. It opened
in 1999 with a base value
of $9.7 million. Last year it
was valued at $20,143,000
– an $800,900 decrease from
2012, when it was valued at
$20,944,200.
TIF 5, the downtown
redevelopment district that
was established in 2010, has
actually lost value since it
opened, however. With a
base value of $19.2 million,
it was assessed in 2012 at
$20,488,400. But that value
dropped to $17,726,600 in
2013, a $2,761,800 decrease
despite the addition of the
Elven Sted housing project.
Sullivan said $2 million of
that loss is due to a change in
the way a business in the dis-
trict is reporting its personal
property taxes.
Records show that Mill-
fab Inc., 433 E. South St.,
dropped in value, reportedly
because it had previously not
been taking a tax deduction
for manufacturing equipment
that it owns. Sullivan and
Mayor Donna Olson said the
company for years had been
paying taxes for manufactur-
ing equipment that should
have been exempt.
The company paying taxes
on tax-exempt personal prop-
erty had the effect of “arti-
ficially inflating” the base
value of TIF 5, Olson said.
Sullivan told the Hub she’s
been trying to persuade the
Department of Revenue that
“it was reported as base val-
ue in error, and we should be
able to change our base val-
ue. That’s an ongoing con-
versation.”
The Hub’s phone messag-
es left with Millfab’s man-
ager were not returned before
press time Tuesday.
KPW opposition
The losses in the two dis-
tricts have alarmed critics
of the proposed Kettle Park
West commercial develop-
ment at the intersection of
State Hwy. 138 and U.S.
Hwy. 51 on the city’s west
side.
Alds. Tim Swadley and
Tom Selsor (along with
Alds. Tom Majewski, David
Kneebone and council presi-
dent Mike Engelberger) have
been staunch opponents of
the KPW proposal. Both said
they weren’t aware of Mill-
fab’s change in tax filing, but
added they don’t support cre-
ating a new TIF district for
the KPW project, regardless.
Creating that TIF district
is a primary condition of the
city’s deal with the develop-
er. It calls for spending $5.1
million, mostly on roadway
and intersection improve-
ments but about 10 percent
of it could assist with grading
the site.
Swadley (D-1) said there
are “conditions when TIF is
appropriate and beneficial to
the long-term viability of the
community.”
He noted that TIF districts
were initially designed to
help economic development
in blighted areas or in busi-
ness parks, but not in green-
field developments like the
one proposed at Kettle Park
West.
“I do have concerns having
a TIF district in a commer-
cial/retail development,” he
said. “That wasn’t the main
purpose in creating TIFs, and
I don’t know if that’s the best
use of TIF money.”
The developer, he said,
should be responsible for the
main cost of the project.
Many other communities
have been able to grow com-
mercially in Dane County
without using TIF, Swadley
said, citing Sun Prairie as an
example.
“Their TIF policy does
not allow a Kettle Park
West-type development to
use TIF funding,” he said.
“I don’t think public money
should be used for commer-
cial developments, or to pay
for state highway improve-
ments.”
Patience is key
Sullivan said the use of
TIF isn’t the problem – its
value fluctuates with the
gains and losses in the econ-
omy, the same as any other
assessed building in the com-
munity.
“We have strong districts
that can pay back the invest-
ments made,” she explained.
“Even in this economy of
falling real estate assess-
ments, all of Stoughton’s TIF
districts have the means to
fund their debt service, and
TIF 3 and TIF 4 are so suc-
cessful that they are also able
to fund new projects.”
The city has created TIF
districts in the past that did
not have immediate develop-
ment or increment value to
support the debt service for
the investment, Sullivan said.
TIF 3 and TIF 4 have both
needed increment sharing
either from a more successful
TIF or from city funds.
But over time, both dis-
tricts have generated enough
increment to not only repay
debt but also support new
projects, Sullivan said.
“For example, TIF 3 now
has generated enough incre-
ment to pay off its debt and
to fund both the 2013 pur-
chase of the Moe Property
– $1.4 million – and the
2014 Williams Drive street
reconstruction ($1.25 mil-
lion),” She said. “These are
both large expenses that were
funded through the success
of TIF 3 and did not increase
the tax burden of the citizens
of Stoughton.”
Sullivan said a downtown
TIF, like TIF 4, is “a difficult
undertaking” because most
of the value is already there
at the start, so it’s hard to
generate increment.
“Stoughton’s downtown
TIF, like most, struggled for
years,” she said. “It has just
been the last few years that
the value is such that the TIF
is able to finish paying off its
debt and also fund the new
downtown Revolving Loan
Fund.”
Additions to the TIF proj-
ect plan, like redeveloping
the (former) Marathon Sta-
tion area, could add to the
success of the district.
TIF 5, meanwhile, is a new
redevelopment district with
only one project so far – the
Elven Sted housing develop-
ment. But Sullivan said the
TIF and developer agree-
ment “ensures that the city’s
investment will be paid back
over time.”
Favorable
comparisons
Sullivan delivered presen-
tations at Common Council
meetings in January and Feb-
ruary about the proposed Ket-
tle Park West TIF district and
its planned TIF expenditures.
She said the district, if cre-
ated, would have the advan-
tage of immediate build-
out. That would fulfill the
increment value needed to
pay back debt service with-
out having to borrow from
another TIF district or the
city’s general fund. That
is a guarantee in the devel-
oper agreement, Sullivan
explained.
“I was trying to show
how this proposed district
would begin with incre-
ment strength and the ability
to increase increment with
any increase in buildings”
beyond the first four build-
ings required in the project,
she said.
Ol s on t ol d t he Hub
that when the city used
TI F t o bui l d Busi ness
Par k Nor t h, of f i ci al s
“acknowledged the fact that
we needed a business park,
and they bought the land and
put in the infrastructure and
created the TIF district, and
then they waited and waited.
They hoped somebody was
going to buy that land, but
they didn’t know for sure.”
Some 22 years later, Busi-
ness Park North has devel-
oped into a prime example
of how a city can use TIF to
spur economic development.
In the case of Kettle Park
West, “we have a developer
and are working through
them,” Olson said.
“So we already have the
‘what,’ – what’s happening
inside – and we’re creating
the TIF to provide that infra-
structure and those safety
improvements on the out-
side,” she said, adding that
Business Park North was
“a riskier proposition” than
what’s being proposed at
Kettle Park West.
“So there are two very
large TIFs in Stoughton’s
history,” Olson said. “I think
it’s important to note that the
city has used TIF successful-
ly throughout the years.”
Some trepidation
Despite the mayor’s opti-
mism, Russ Reppen, a retired
real estate specialist of the
Wisconsin Department of
Revenue, has his doubts.
The Pleasant Springs resi-
dent wrote in a recent let-
ter to the editor that “before
spending more taxpayer dol-
lars on a risky retail TIF that
includes one of the world’s
largest and wealthiest cor-
porations, Wal-Mart, the
city should work on getting
the existing TIFs healthy.
The Department of Revenue
makes very clear that taxpay-
ers are ultimately account-
able for failing TIFs.”
Reppen thinks if Wal-Mart
wants a new Supercenter, it
should build the store on its
own dime.
“They could finance it for
less than 3.5 percent” (which
is the interest rate the city is
projecting to pay for borrow-
ing), he said. “Heck, they
could finance it themselves.”
It’s a point that Engelberg-
er (D-2) has made repeatedly
since the project was first
proposed.
Selsor (D-4) agrees that
creating a TIF district for
KPW is not worth the risk to
Stoughton taxpayers. He said
while he doesn’t understand
all there is to know about
tax-increment financing, “I
have no confidence that it’s
being fully and totally pre-
sented in all of its nuances to
us.”
Selsor reasons it would
“take years for Stoughton to
recover” a TIF district for
KPW were fail.
He’s come to the conclu-
sion that it is “too risky for
the city of Stoughton to take
this on.”
“Ther e’ s enough not
under st ood, and t her e
is enough risk, that we
shouldn’t put the whole
future on the city on the line
for this development,” he
said. “I don’t think we can
withstand a mistake here. I
don’t think the potential gain
is worth the risk, even if the
risk is only 10 percent.”

Every year at this time in the spring, we pause in our busy lives
and remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. It is a time
for us to take the time and reflect upon the people we know and love
and how much they meant to us when they were still alive. It is the
time when we go to the graves of our loved ones and tidy them up
while we reminisce about the past and how much we miss them. It is
also the time when we honor all of our war dead on Memorial Day.
It is a small thing that we do to take time and honor our brave
military members of all the branches of service for the sacrifice they
gave so we can enjoy our lives.
Our local veterans work together to present a parade, weather
permitting, in honor of local and all veterans, at 10 a.m., Monday,
May 26. Following the parade there will be a program at the Mandt
Center at 11 a.m., rain or shine. It is a wonderful way to take a bit
of your time and share it with the rest of us. Planning a parade and
a program is a lot of work; however, it is worth every minute when
someone comes up and says how much they enjoyed the parade or
were moved by the program. It is a true labor of love for us to do this
for the Stoughton area.
We honor the dead by supporting the living. If you have a family
member, friend or neighbor in the military, thank them for their
service. It can mean so much to that person and will brighten their
day. Take time out of your day on this Memorial Day and look back
to those who have gone before us, leaving behind only the memories
of them. Let’s keep those memories fresh in our hearts as long as we
live.

Vikings clinch Badger South
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
Th e St o u g h t o n Hi g h
S c h o o l b a s e b a l l t e a m
clinched the Badger South
Conference for the second
straight season with wins
over Monroe Monday (6-4)
and Tuesday (13-5).
Stoughton continues the
regular season by hosting
Fort Atkinson Thursday and
Waunakee next Tuesday.
Both games are at 5 p.m.
Stoughton also earned a
No. 2 seed and a first-round
bye for sectional 5 in the
WIAA Division 1 baseball
playoffs Sunday.
The Vikings will play the
winner of No. 7 Oregon and
No. 10 Monona Grove on
June 5 in the regional final.

Senior PJ Rosowski fell

Vikings bounced back with
t hree runs i n t he bot t om
of the first last Thursday
against Milton.
That cushion was all Roso-
wski needed, as he settled in
to finish with 13 strikeouts
in a complete game. Eight
of those strikeouts came in
the final three innings. He
allowed two earned runs on
four hits. He walked two.
Head coach Jeremy Dun-
nihoo said when Rosowski
fl i ps a swi t ch and st art s
throwing strikes, it is usually
game over.
“I started locating more
throughout the game,” Roso-
wski said. “The first couple
of innings, I wasn’t really
hitting my spot, especially
when I was getting up in the
counts. Later in the game,
I was starting to locate my
curveball and my fastball a
little more when I was deep
in the counts.
Once I got the first couple
of guys down, I knew it was
working so I stuck with the
game plan and locations I
originally planned for.”
Vikings claim fourth
straight Badger South
crown, 4x400 sets meet
record in big finish
ANTHONY IOZZO
Assistant sports editor
Don’t tell the Stoughton High
School girls track and field 4x400
relay that the Badger South Confer-
ence title was already theirs prior to
the final race of the night.
The Vikings (193 1/2 points)
were already running away with
their fourth-straight Badger South
Conference crown after the 3,200,
but the 4x400 relay of senior Kath-
erine Rude, junior Nikki Staffen,
sophomore Maren Gryttenholm and
freshman Aly Weum put the “cherry
on top” of the night by winning the
relay in a meet-record time of 4 min-
utes, 4.91 seconds.
“It was really an insane ride the
whole race,” said Weum, who ran
the final leg of the race. “We were
just thinking that we could do it and
that it was a possibility. We knew
if we put it to our potential that we
could.”
Weum added that it was also
something she and the girls wanted
to accomplish with Rude, who ran
the second leg. This was Rude’s
final race on the SHS track, and she
was speechless after the race.
Gryttenholm ran the third leg
of the race and spoke on behalf of
Rude.
“Katherine is one of my big-
gest idols,” Gryttenholm said. “She
worked so hard this season, and we
all worked so hard. We all put forth
our best effort, and we did it.”
Staffen added, “We have been
preparing for it all season long, and
we performed exactly like we knew
we could. It was the best race we
ever ran.”
Stoughton had two other winners
on the night. Junior Savanna Smith
won the discus with a throw of 115
feet, 8 inches, and freshman Mya
Lonnebotn took the triple jump with
a distance of 33-8 1/4.

It also helped that Alex
Zacharias came up big at
the plate. Zacharias was
2-for-4 with three RBIs.
He roped a two-run single
in the sixth to give Stough-
ton some insurance runs,
putting them up 6-2. He
also had an RBI double in
the first inning that gave
Stoughton a 2-1 lead at the
time.
“It was pretty good to seal
the deal, but PJ is a great
pitcher and he would have
shut them down anyway,”
Zacharias said.
Stoughton fell behind 1-0
early after a bloop double
by Justin Lynch that fell
due to the sun temporarily
blinding the right fielder.
Lynch later scored on an
error.
The Vi ki ngs bounced
back with three in the bot-
tom of the first. Cade Bun-
nell singled and reached
third on a Chris Lund single
with the hit-and-run on.
Bunnel l scor ed on a
passed ball, and Zacha-
rias doubled in Lund. Alec
Showers then walked to
load the bases, and Michael
Gerber picked up an RBI
walk, scoring courtesy run-
ner Brett Byrne, to make it
3-1.
“We felt we would be fine
and would bounce back, and
we did with those three runs
right away,” Dunnihoo said.
“Any time when we have a
lead with PJ on the mound,
we feel really confident.”
Stoughton’s other run
came wi t h t wo out s i n
the third. Braden Poirier
walked, and Zach Hassel-
berger reached on an infield
single. Austin Miller fol-
lowed with an RBI single to
make it 4-2.
Milton’s other run came
in the second with two outs.
Drew Hermanson doubled
to right, and Lynch hit an
RBI single.
Zacharias’s 2-run double
in the sixth scored Lund and
Byrne.
Drew Rust picked up the
loss for Milton. He went
five innings and allowed
four earned runs on six
hits. He struck out two and
walked five.
Stoughton 3, Portage 2
The Vikings traveled to
Jones Park for the Badger
Challenge last Saturday and
pulled out a 3-2 win over
Portage.
Rosowski (2-for-4) hit
the game-winning RBI dou-
ble in the seventh inning,
and Sam Ripp (2-for-4),
Bunnell (2-for-4), Byrne
(3-for-3) and Lund (2-for-3)
led Stoughton at the plate.
Josh Eugster pitched a
complete game and allowed
two earned runs on five
hits. He struck out five and
walked four.
Jack Nelson picked up
the loss for Portage. He
allowed a run on three hits
and walked two.
Stoughton 6, Monroe 4
Stoughton hosted Mon-
roe Monday and pulled out
a 6-4 win in a game that
featured a lengthy rain and
lightning delay.
Bunnell led the offense
(2-for-4, t wo doubl es),
while Lund and Zacharias
both hit home runs. Roso-
wski was also 2-for-4, and
he added a double.
Zacharias picked up the
win. He went five innings
and allowed an earned run
on four hits. He walked
three and struck out five.
Brady Wanniger finished

Vikings collect back-to-back victories
JEREMY JONES
Sports editor
Stoughton softball had already
played fourth-ranked Monroe down to
the wire earlier this season and Thurs-
day evening they did it again.
Stoughton had the Badger South
Conference frontrunner visiting Chee-
semakers on the ropes until the top of
the seventh inning.
The Vikings, leading by a run up to
that point, watched Monroe’s Kirsten
Vetterli connect on a two-run home run
that dropped the Vikings in a 2-1 loss.
Natalie Dillon allowed four hits and
two walks for the Cheesemakers (21-3
overall, 9-1 conference). Sarah Seaton
also allowed four hits and walked none
in the loss.
Liz Auby was 2-for-3 with a pair
of doubles in the loss, while Seaton
(1-2) knocked in Stoughton’s lone run.
Stoughton 4, Milton 1
Seaton went the distance, tossing
a two-hitter Friday en route to a 4-1
conference win at Milton. She struck-
out six over seven innings.
Holly Brickson went 1-for-2 with
an RBI and Samantha Tepp finished
1-for-2 with a triple in a 4-1 victory at
Milton on Friday.
Stoughton 4, Monona Grove 1
Moved from Monday to Tuesday
because of rain and lightning, the
Vikings collected a second-straight
conference win by the score of 4-1.
Seaton struck out 12 and once again
held the opposition to two hits, while
Tepp went 1-for-2 with a double
against MG. Cassie Adams and Beth-
any Veum both went 1-for-3 with an
RBI.

Wenzel, Merchants ride the long ball in rivalry win
JEREMY JONES
Sports editor
Stoughton Home Talent
League first baseman Sean
Gerber hit a pair of home runs
Saturday at Norse Park, but it
was the long ball of the other
corner infielder that sealed the
rival Utica A’s fate.
Following two walks, a
couple wild pitches and an
RBI single from Max Fuller,
third baseman Jake Wenzel
launched a two-run walk-off
home run off reliever Dane
Schultz that capped a 14-12
comeback win over the rival
Utica A’s.
“It was just a belt-high fast-
ball,” Wenzel said. “I was just
sitting on that pitch and hop-
ing to put a good swing on it.
“That one felt all right off
the bat.”
The back-and-forth, inten-
sity on every pitch, was noth-
ing new when the rivals get
together Wenzel said.
“The last three years it’s
been like that,” he said. “We
just hung around and found a
way to pull it out in the end.”
Sean Gerber went deep the
first time in the home half of
the first, scoring his brother
Eric, who tripled past a diving
Mike Lund in right field.
As was the case all day,
however, Utica fought back
to take the lead when Aus-
tin Mades doubled off the
left-field fence. Stoughton
miscues helped the A’s take
their first lead in the second.
A Merchant error knotted the
score before a balk by Rory
Menzer, who was making his
season debut, pushed Utica
ahead 3-2.
An RBI ground out in the
fourth once again tied the
game before a solo home run
by Sean Gerber and two more
Kyle Bates wild pitches gave
the Merchants a 6-4 lead.
Utica lead-off hitter Andy
Martin pulled the A’s even
with a two-run double in the
sixth.
Stoughton finally looked
like it had some breathing
room, plating three runs in
the bottom of the sixth only to
have the A’s scratch out two
runs in the eighth.
In a game featuring four
lead changes, Utica second
baseman Doug Vike high-
lighted a four-run ninth with a
two-run single that pushed the
A’s ahead 12-9 and led to one
of the most dramatic finishes
in the coaching stead of Dale
Seffens.
“No doubt about it,” Sef-
fens said. “You got your mon-
ey’s worth today.”
Stoughton travels to Fort
Atkinson at 1 p.m. Sunday,
while Utica is at Clinton.
Night League
Sean Gerber had a three-
run home run two days prior
in a 10-4 victory over Utica in
both team’s Thursday Night
League debut.
Knotted at 3-all, Sean Ger-
ber doubled and later scored
on a Kris Rosholt single.
Steve Pennekamp added a
second-straight RBI single to
plate Wenzel, who walked,
before Si mon Mauri ce
doubled home a pair of runs.
Sean Gerber capped the
victory with a three run-run
shot in the sixth.
Eric Gerber tossed four
innings for the win, while
Jeremy Dunnihoo worked the
last three.
Sean and Skip Gerber
each finished 2-for-3, as did
Rosholt. Maurice finished
1-for-3 with three RBIs.
Vike (2-for-3) and Mades
doubled to pace the A’s.
Stoughton travels to Mid-
dleton at 7 p.m. this Thursday,
while Utica host Sun Prairie at
Stoughton High School (7:30
p.m.).

Madison International Speedway
It’s back to Friday Nights
It’s back to Friday nights
so turn on the lights at Madi-
son International Speedway
when the racing season begins
on May 23. The action on
Fridays will run all summer
long culminating with Season
Championship night on Aug.
29.
After moving to a special
event schedule on Sunday
afternoons last year, MIS offi-
cials realized that the “Friday
Night Tradition” had to return.
“We’re a Friday night track
and that’s what our fans are
used to and what they want,”
said MIS General Manager
Dave Grueneberg.
Highlighting the weekly
racing action will be the Super
Late Models who will be tak-
ing on Wisconsin’s Fastest
Half-Mile.
“This is what our fans have
been asking for and it’s what
racing at Madison is best
known for over the years,”
added Grueneberg.
A quick glance at the past
champions at Madison proves
this to be true as Matt Kens-
eth won a title in 1994 and
legendary stars such as Dick
Trickle, Joe Shear, and Rich
Bickle Jr. won multiple cham-
pionships.
The Super Late Models
will be in action on nine nights
that also include the three
events of the Triple Crown
Challenge. The Triple Crown
Challenge events will include
a 100-lap feature and will
pay the winner $2500. Casey
Johnson was the Triple Crown
Challenge winner in 2013.
When the Super Late Mod-
els are not in action the Lim-
ited Late Models/Late Models
will be in action for three
events plus the Big 8 Late
Model race on June 27 that
will include our Salute to
America fireworks extrava-
ganza.
The American Ethanol
Super Trucks and Dave’s
White Rock Sportsman will
also be racing on the half-
mile in 2014. Both divi-
sions are expected to be
highly competitive, with
close racing action guar-
anteed. Jerry Wood is the
defending champion in the
Super Trucks, while the
Sportsman did not race in
2013.
Two divisions will be in
action on the quarter mile
infield track this year with
the Pellitteri Waste Systems
Legends and Roto Rooter
Bandits taking on one of the
Midwest’s most challeng-
ing ovals. Defending cham-
pion in the Legends divi-
sion is Cory Talaska, while
the Bandits did not
Pit gates for Friday night

Adult admission is $12,
with students (12-17) and
senior citizens (60+) $10.
Kids 11 and under are free.

Obituary
Virginia (Ginny) H.
Goplen
Vi r gi ni a ( Gi nny) H.
Goplen, age 88, of Madi-
son passed away peace-
fully at Agrace HospiceC-
are on May 12, 2014, sur-
rounded by family.
She was born on April
13, 1926, t o Kar l and
Almyra Helwig of South
Wayne, the oldest of four
children (Bill, Karl and
Bet h). She grew up i n
Waupaca and later Supe-
rior. She attended the UW-
Madison where she met
Lesl i e (Les) J. Gopl en.
They were married in June
1948. Ginny graduated in
1949 with a B.S. in Home
Economics.
Gi nny and Les wer e
founding members of the
Monona Methodist Church
and active in the choir and
bible study groups. Ginny
taught home economics
and adult education classes
while raising three chil-
dren, Gary, Pamela and
Bruce in Monona. In 1970,
she returned to UW-Madi-
son for her MS in Counsel-
ing, becoming a counselor
at McFarland High School
for ten years. After two
years of advanced training,
she became a marriage and
family psychotherapist for
the remainder of her career
(20 years), working at the
Madison Holistic Health
Center and founding the
Birch Springs Center in
Monona.
Ginny constantly studied
nutrition, wholeness and
health. She kept up a rig-
orous daily yoga routine
for 50 years, contributing
to her overall youthful-
ness and energy. Some of
Ginny’s passions included:
singing (with Les in the
church and Ruth Harris
Gospel choirs), sewing,
kni t t i ng, gui t ar, accor -
dion and piano. She was
always exploring new cre-
ative artistic expressions;
sculpting, creative stitch-
ery, watercolors and oil
painting. She loved gar-
dening, camping, biking,
swimming, cross country
skiing and hiking.
One of her greatest chal-
lenges was a five week
trip to Europe alone; vis-
iting 12 countries, stay-
ing in hostels and meeting
new people. In later years,
Ginny and Les traveled
the world together, often
camping, hiking or liv-
ing out of a backpack. Les
passed away in April 2005.
Ginny was always very
generous to a wide variety
of charities, including for
decades continually sup-
porting the Christian Chil-
dren’s Fund.
In 2009, Gi nny mar -
ried Frank Anderson (her
first boyfriend from Supe-
rior). They enjoyed visiting
friends and family and get-
ting “lost” on afternoon car
rides exploring the coun-
tryside. Frank and Ginny
have spent many winters
escaping the cold weather
in Florida. Frank has made
Ginny very happy in their
“golden years” of retire-
ment together and provided
tremendous love and sup-
port during her recent chal-
lenges.
Gi nny i s survi ved by
her loving husband, Frank
Anderson; three children,

A regular meeting of the Board of
Education of the Stoughton Area School
District was called to order Monday,
April 7, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in the Adminis-
trative and Educational Services Center
Board Room by Vice President, Pat Volk.
BOARD MEMBERS PRESENT: Bev
Fergus, Joe Freye, Wanda Grasse, Tina

livan, Donna Tarpinian, and Pat Volk.
Excused: Liz Menzer.
PUBLIC COMMENT: None.
COMMUNI CATI ONS/ RECOGNI -
TIONS/ANNOUNCEMENTS: None.

SUPERINTENDENT/PRINCIPAL/
STUDENT REPORTS: Dr. Onsager re-
minded members tomorrow is the third
grade Sons of Norway heritage event at
their lodge. He then thanked the Stough-
ton community by saying: This last week
was a big for our school district and our
community. As a result, there are a lot
of people to thank. Thank you to Strong
Schools Strong Community organiza-
tion for all your support. Thank you to
our Working for Kids and Parent groups
for everything they do for our schools
and our kids. Thank you to our staff for
all their hard work these past four years
and for the work they will continue to do.
Thank you to the Board for your leader-
ship. Thank you to our students for mak-
ing us proud to be Vikings, whether it’s
in the classroom, on the playing feld or
in the concert hall. Lastly and perhaps
most importantly, thank you to the com-
munity for all your support – not just
over this last week but over the years as
well. Together, we have accomplished a
great deal. We will need to work together
to continue that work and keep Stough-
ton vibrant. The community has done its
part, and it’s important that we continue
to do our part here in the district as well.
We are also making another pledge: we
will keep reaching out to our community
to let them know how our school district
is doing both academically and fnan-
cially. One thing we heard during our
referendum presentations it that people
only seem to hear from us when there
is a referendum election; that must and
will change. We will continue to make
ourselves available to our community
in convenient public locations where
they can share their ideas and ask
questions. We will be more proactive in
keeping people apprised of our goals
for our schools and our progress on
the strategic plan that the communities
help devise to guide us. We are here to
serve, and we want this to be a school
district of which all can be proud. Thank
you again for everything you have done
for our kids. As a school administra-
tor and as a parent, I can tell you that
your support does make a difference in
a child’s life. Pat Volk also thanked Tim,
Erica and all the staff for their efforts. He
also thanked Scott Dirks, Gary Tarpin-
ian, Katie Freye and Krista Westerberg
and all others who donated their time to
continuously support our schools.

COMMITTEE REPORTS: None.
DISCUSSION/ACTION: None.
DISCUSSION:
A. Breakfast and Lunch Fee In-
crease
Annually, USDA regulation requires
all schools participating in the National
School Lunch Program to increase pric-
es to ensure suffcient funds are pro-
vided to the non-proft food service ac-
count for meals to students who do not
qualify for free/reduced priced meals.
The Finance Committee recommends a
student lunch fee increase of $0.10, a
student breakfast fee increase of $0.05,
and an adult lunch fee increase of $0.50
for the 2014-15 school year. This item
will be placed on the April 21 agenda for
Board action.
B. Pool Timing System Fee Increase
Erica Pickett reviewed the annual
facility fee review based on a formula
to recover cost. The Finance Commit-
tee recommends increasing the timing
system user fat fee to $50.00 for district
residents and $100.00 for non-residents.
This item will be place on the April 21
agenda for Board action.
C. Pool Program Fee Increase
The Finance Committee reviews
facility fees annually. Erica Pickett ex-
plained the annual pool program fee
review. The Finance Committee recom-
mends increasing pool program fees
(swim lessons) by $0.25 per lesson
effective 2014 summer swim season.
This item will be placed on the April 21
agenda for Board action.
D. Pool Party Fee Increase
Erica Pickett provided a review of
the annual pool party fee. The Finance
Committee recommends increasing
pool party fees by $5.00 ($40.00/resi-
dents - $50.00/nonresidents). This fee
has not been increased since 2009. This
item will be placed on the April 21 agen-
da for Board action.
E. 2014-15 Enrollment Driven Staff-
ing Recommendation
Annually administrators review
enrollments for the coming school year
and develop enrollment driven reduc-
tions/increases using class size policy,
test results and student special needs.
Tim Onsager reviewed the 2014-15 en-
rollment driven staffng increase and
reduction recommendations. These rec-
ommendations result in a net decrease
of approximately 3.0 FTE (increases:
.5 HS Math teacher (1 yr. temp), .5 RB
Math teacher (1 yr. temp), 1.0 RB Read-
ing teacher, 2.0 Sandhill interpreter, and
.05 HS school to work coordinator)(de-
creases: 1.0 Kegonsa classroom teach-
er, 1.0 RB English teacher, .5 HS English
teacher, .5 HS social studies teacher,
1.0 HS special ed. teacher, 1.0 district
educational assistant, .5 HS business
education teacher, 1.0 Kegonsa kinder-
garten teacher). River Bluff math inter-
ventions will be identifed using testing,
staff recommendation. All reductions
will be increased/decreased using the
one year temporary positions and at-
trition (retirement/resignation). SASD
does not use “blended” grades. Dr. On-
sager reminded the Board we communi-
cated to the community the district will
decrease an average of 2.0 FTE annually
to accommodate declining enrollment.
This item will be placed on the April 21
agenda for Board action.
FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS: Staff
Handbook (Employee Relations Com-
mittee will review proposed chang-
es/employee feedback and make
recommendation(s) to the full Board).
Curriculum Updates: Math/May, Read-
ing/June and Science/July. Al Jaegar
will provide a Health Insurance and Af-
fordable Care Act update at the April 21
meeting.

mittee

Board Retreat June 9.
DISCUSSION/ACTION:
A. District Health Insurance Update
President Menzer introduced dis-
trict health insurance consultant, Al Jae-
gar of Associated Financial Group. He
reviewed: Health Care Reform; Health
Care Exchanges/Marketplace; Cadillac
Tax; health insurance defnitions; em-
ployer response to
Health Care Reform; Peer Group
Plan comparison; suggested plan
changes for SASD; future consider-
ations (wellness initiatives; plan design,
contribution/eligibility); and develop-
ment of a future Health Insurance Stra-
tegic Planning Committee with area pro-
viders. Al Jaegar works with the district
Health Insurance Committee comprised
of representatives from each employee
group. As a group, they review data,
look for ways to keep health insurance
offerings adequate for district staff and
control costs. At the last Health Insur-
ance committee meeting, the commit-
tee agreed to recommend plan design
changes to keep premium increases be-
low 8% as follows: increasing drug co-
pays at each tier by $5 (from $0/$15/$25
to $5/$20/$30) and increasing HMO of-
fce visit copays by $5 (from $10 to $15).
Becky Fjelstad and Erica Pickett are also
exploring a “clinic
model” for district staff which
would provide on-site health supports.
Erica Pickett explained about 6 years
ago the district moved from a self-fund-
ed insurance plan, then to a point of ser-
vice plan and last year moved to HMO
service plans for employees. These ser-
vice plan changes resulted in cost sav-
ings for the district while maintaining
health services for employees. The dis-
trict now pays 90% of HMO plans for em-
ployees. Employees can opt for a point
of service plan but are required to pay
the difference above the 90% HMO plan
cost. The district has not conducted an
employee health insurance satisfac-
tion survey recently. Employees are in-
formed of Flex Plan options throughout
the year through district email, building
newsletters and staff meetings.
B. Summer School Course Offering

Summer School principal, Chris
Keenan reviewed 2014 Summer Excel

pinian, seconded by Brent Schumacher,

2014-15 school year.
B. Pool Timing System Fee Increase

pinian, seconded by Pat Volk, and car-
ried unanimously to increase the timing
