Anita Brouwer had only lived
in her Kettle Woods Drive home
for three weeks before last Tuesday’s tornado sent a tree through
her basement window and tore off
shingles on her roof.
She and her husband Ken had
woken up around midnight to find
their dog cowering in their bedroom closet.
“It was really strange,” Brouwer
said.
That prompted the two to head
downstairs, the suggested but
often disregarded safety precaution during a big storm, especially
in the middle of the night.
“(Ken) will not normally go
down to the basement, but he
decided to when he saw the dog
doing that, because it’s like animals can sense the weather,”
Brouwer said.
It was a matter of minutes before
the EF3-rated twister touched
down in Verona, and when it
reached her neighborhood, it made
a sound “like baseballs pounding
against the house.”
The Brouwers were one of 84
families in the Verona area that
reported some sort of damage to
their homes, according to city
administrator Bill Burns’ report to
the Common Council on Monday.

which sustained up to $4 million
in damage.
Dane County Emergency Management has estimated the total
damage to Verona and the west
side of Madison between Tuesday
morning’s storm and the one that
followed about 24 hours later to
be more than $15 million, spread
among more than 250 homes and
businesses.
That included 19 homes with
major damage, according to a June
19 news release, though amazingly, no injuries were reported.
Plenty of other houses has debris
and trees strewn about their yards,
removal of which most insurance
policies likely won’t cover, Verona-based American Family Insurance agent Brian Wagner told the
Verona Press.
While the Verona community
initially got almost more help than
it could use – emergency responders from about 25 public agencies
often found themselves waiting in
“staging areas” to be deployed –
the cleanup and recovery will take
extended efforts lasting weeks or
even months.
Burns reported that the disaster doesn’t meet the threshold for
intervention by the Federal Emergency Management Agency but
that the federal Small Business

The city approved four

as the first part of a package that will allow for construction of a roughly $10

under budget, but their total
amounts to just $1.5 million.

did not see until midway
through Monday’s meeting,

Heartland Farm Sanctuary applied for a conditional use permit May 1 with
the Town of Verona.
While it’s been on the
agenda multiple times since
then and the Plan Commission has approved its application for a rezoning and certified survey map, the permit
has yet to be voted on.
So the commission held

a special meeting last
Wednesday to work out
some of the issues, specifically discussing what conditions might be necessary
on the permit.
And although the commission did not give official
approval at the meeting, it

was a “good conversation,”
said town administrator/
planner Amanda Arnold.
Heartland’s plan is to
have camps for children
with challenges to work
with animals, and the
property, at 7713 Midtown Road, would likely
hold fundraisers and other
events, as well, Arnold said.
The discussion Wednesday included what conditions to put on lighting,
driveway design, parking
and other general operations to ensure Heartland’s
use “wouldn’t have (a) negative impact on adjoining
properties,” Arnold said.
Only one neighbor has

expressed any concerns,
and those were focused
on finding compromises
for issues such as lighting,
Arnold said. She added
“they could probably be
(addressed) by the conditions put on the conditional
use permit.”
The issue will now go
back to the commission at
its meeting Thursday, June
26, and Arnold said she
expected the commission to
vote on conditions and send
it to the Town Board for its
July 1 meeting.
Heartland Farm Sanctuary executive director Dana
Barre did not return a call
seeking comment.

Exec reaches deal
with employees

Program set to
begin in 2014-15
Thanks to a $19,093
state grant, New Century
School’s Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM) will
take another step forward
for the 2014-15 school year.
According to a press
release last week from the
Wisconsin Department of
Public Instruction, the district was one of 15 chosen
to receive the one-time
funding, which will help
enhance STEM offerings
for students in grades K-5,
said state superintendent
Tony Evers.
“STEM education
is vital to our students
and the future,” he said.
“These courses take an
innovative approach to
engage, motivate and
inspire students to spark
their interest in careers in
science technology, engineering and mathematics.
These fields hold so much
potential as the source
of innovation and entrepreneurship that drive
economic development
and the knowledge-based
economy.”

Three phases
NCS director Jim Ruder sent an email to parents Tuesday stating the
school would implement
the grant in three phases:
Assessment and purchase

of a STEM curriculum;
Professional development
for teachers; and Assess
the ability of a STEM
curriculum to impact students’ understanding of
STEM subjects.
“With nationwide
momentum behind the
STEM movement, working toward a STEMschool designation is a
natural next step in our
evolution of engaged
learning,” Ruder wrote.
“NCS has always been
about expanding ideas–a
place where change rises
up through our children,
parents, and staff seeking
the best education possible.”
Ruder said NCS will
share what it learns with
the rest of the district.
The program requires
that the districts provide
a matching amount equal
to 25 percent of the grant,
and evidence of sustainability beyond the grant
was also part of the evaluation process, Evers said,
with 70 districts applying
for funding.
Grant applications were
based on a needs assessment and included measurable objectives and a
process for identifying
school and student participants.
“Demand for funding
to expand student access
to STEM coursework was
strong,” he said.

County Board
could approve deal
Thursday
Dane County has reached
a tentative collective bargaining agreement with its
largest employees union for
2016. The county board is
set to vote on the matter at
its Thursday meeting.
According to a press
release from Dane County
Executive Joe Parisi, the
agreement will include a
focus on workplace diversity, a modest wage increase
for workers and will help
control the county’s longterm health insurance premium costs.
“Dane County’s employees work hard to deliver
critical services to our
residents every day – from
keeping our communities
safe to taking care of the
most vulnerable among
us,” he said. “We are
proud to partner with them
once again and provide an
example of how collective
bargaining works in Dane
County.”
Parisi said he’s worked
with the county’s union
workforce to find nearly $4
million in savings in the past
three years through voluntary leave, wage reductions
and furlough days to “assist
with budget challenges and
help protect funding for the
vital services county government provides.”
Shannon Maier, president

of the joint council of
AFSCME locals 705 and
720, said the agreement
shows the “wisdom of
working together and honors Dane County values.”
“The vast majority of
Dane County citizens support collective bargaining
and quality public services,” Maier said.
County board chairperson Sharon Corrigan said
the agreement improves
wages and respects workers.
“Our workforce has
helped us through difficult
budget times,” she said.
“I’m glad we could recognize their contribution to
the well-being of the residents of Dane County.”
According to the press
release, the agreement
includes the creation of a
joint labor/management
committee that will strive
to increase minority recruitment and retention in the
county’s represented workforce – a key focus of Parisi, county board members
and labor leaders. It also
provides employees with a
raise in 2016 of .22 cents
per hour, paid for in part
by savings the county will
receive from changes in the
employees’ health insurance plans.

Letters to the editor

Virginia election highlights lack of compromise
Viewing the political chaos on
the TV news regarding the Cantor/Brat primary sends a shudder
up your spine. It is clear we have
reached a point in politics where it
is hard to imagine what absurdity
will come next.
Every society has to look for a
balance between the competing
philosophies of individual freedom and the idea of the “greatest good for the greatest number”
which is attained by maintaining a just and competent government. Between the 1930’s and the
1960’s we spent much effort using
government programs to mitigate individual greed and avarice.
Since then we have tilted toward
excessive individual freedom with
a new definition of corporations
as individuals.
A healthy economy with a fair
distribution of equality of wealth
helps maintain a culture of justice
enabling all a chance for a successful material existence. Collectivism for the common good
and individual freedom has the
possibility of being a positive
partnership in creating a just and

free society. The challenge is to
find a proper balance.
We have currently descended
into the depths by falsifying a
myth that a completely free market economy with no restraints(a
la Ayn Rand) is the end all and
the be all. In doing so we have
demonized government as the
great satan. We have polarized ourselves into two groups
with eternal opposition being our
expressive mode. With a religious
zealotry compromise is forbidden
and viewed as a mortal sin.
The election of Dave Brat, an
advocate of Ayn Rand over Congressman Eric Cantor in the Virginia GOP primary is an example
of how Republicans are so afraid
of compromise that they can never achieve an acceptable level of
purity no matter how far right they
advance.
How far will we go with this
insanity? When will we come to
our senses?

Church approval for former Wildcat
Lanes could open door for others
Thank you for taking a moment
to consider my note. My thoughts
are concerned for future religious
residents.
I would like to remind you that
once you allow a church to take
such a valuable place on the very
face of Verona, you are opening
the town to further such places
right on the main street. I’m not
sure that you would like to subject
Verona to a “Holy Roller” type of
town in the future?
This is a possibility because

you won’t be able to decide which
denomination can take residence
that would open for a suit of discrimination.
This truly is a prime location – I would hate to think that
you would be opening the possibility to future placements of
“churches,” like Westboro Baptist
Church.
Please use caution.

extremely sensitive or sore, you
probably need good support in
your shoes and minimalist shoes
may not be for you. If you aren’t
sure about your arches or have
other feet issues, you may want
to talk with your doctor or see a
podiatrist.
Then, consider how much of a
runner you are. My brother is a
physical therapist and he sees a
lot of runners who use and who
don’t use minimalist. He has seen
several common things people do
that lead to injuries.
In general, one of the most
common is when they try to do
too much too fast. This especially
happens after New Years.
“It’s only running,” you may
think.
“I’ve been doing it since I was
a kid,” you might say.
But if you are a novice, you
might go from not running at all
to trying to run five miles in a
day, and then spend the next few
weeks in agony. Seasoned runners know that’s a silly way to
start and will take a more gradual
approach.
However, even seasoned runners might forget this when
transitioning to minimalist shoes.
You might be able to run 10
miles without a problem in normal shoes, but when transitioning
to minimalist shoes, those 10
miles need to be built up again.
The reason: Different muscles
groups are being used.
Another way is to transition
your shoes slowly so you can be
sure that minimalist shoes are
truly for you. This could mean
buying an extra pair of shoes
or two -- perhaps a type that is
semi-minimalist or some other
kind of transitional shoe -- until
you are comfortable in minimalist shoes. It could take several
more months to get there.
One of the common reasons

my brother sees a lot of runners
in need of physical therapy from
minimalist shoes is because the
shoes amplify their weaknesses.
The weaknesses that cause
injury (either strength or flexibility) are specifically in the
hip muscles and core muscles. A
normal running shoe might compensate and cushion these areas
so they are less strained, but a
minimalist shoe won’t.
Minimalist shoes often lead to
a common runner’s injury called
IT band syndrome, or inflammation of the illiotibial band.
Poor gluteal muscle strength
can cause a pelvic imbalance,
which in turn causes the IT band
(muscles on the outside part of
the thigh) to either rub against
other muscles or to pull where
the muscle attaches. Imbalanced
leg muscles cause the more common knee pains that people experience.
Minimalist shoes will amplify
these conditions if your form and
imbalance is not corrected prior
to running.
All that said, running in minimalist shoes can be very satisfying for some people. If you’re
thinking about getting your own
minimalist shoes, I don’t want to
discourage you.
What I do advise new runners,
experienced runners, and multimarathon Iron Man runners is
to remember the basics: have a
good foundation (running form),
know your body (your strength,
flexibility and anatomy), start
slow and build up, and ask for
help when in doubt.

Fairfield Inn hurdle cleared
Nine months ago, Lee Fischl was ready to start building a second West Verona
Avenue hotel a block away
from the Holiday Inn Express
his company built in 2008.
But lingering right-ofway issues with the state
have delayed the project
and made financing impossible.
Monday the city approved
a “quit claim deed” with
Fischl’s group, Nine Mound

Development, that he hopes
will clear the way for construction as early as “midJuly.”
The unanimous decision
transfers land as part of a
three-way agreement with
Nine Mound and the state
Department of Transportation to provide enough
space for parking on the
oddly shaped parcel on
Half-Mile Road.
Fischl told the Common

Council the deed and property use agreement (which
allows for both public and
hotel parking on Half-Mile)
was “one of the last challenges” the hotel faced,
after coming to an agreement with the state. He added that it is contingent on
financing, which could not
happen while the right-ofway issue was outstanding.
– Jim Ferolie

Fire: New process has many subcontractors
bids instead went through
construction manager Bill
Pennoyer, a hired expert
from Fitchburg’s Tri-North
Builders, which is not
allowed to bid on any of the
35 individual projects.
Previous projects
required extensive staff
time. Public works director
Ron Rieder, for example,
had to oversee the work of
Verona City Center contractor Fischl Construction
throughout that nearly oneyear project, which included an unexpected teardown
and rebuild of the administration wing after a storm
knocked down the roof.
In that case, Fischl won
the contract with a single
low bid and a handful of
options, called “alternates.”
This time, Pennoyer guided alders through four separate projects, the biggest of
which he then split into two
projects through two different companies to get a better price. Another project,
for asphalt, he recommended the council delay until it
has decided how much concrete it will use.
That last bit was probably the most difficult
decision alders faced so
far, with the optional larger concrete area costing
more than $100,000 extra
up front but possibly less
in maintenance, given the
extraordinary weight of fire

But the way the bids
worked out, Verona was
able to choose the same
contractor for any of the
three concrete options
(apron only, rear and side
added, colored rear and
side) knowing it would be
the lowest cost no matter
what.
Ald. Evan Touchett (Dist.
4) was skeptical of a nearly 50 percent difference
between two bids for earthwork and site demolition,
but Pennoyer explained that
those bids can vary widely
because of availability and
distance from the site to
whatever dumping area the
contractor would use.
Ald. Heather Reekie
(D-4) urged fellow alders to
consider going with colored
concrete to make it easier
for the general public to
recognize restricted parking
areas, particularly given the
potential shared space with
Verona Area Community
Theater.
And Ald. Brad Stiner
(D-3) called up fire chief
Joe Giver to make sure he
felt good about the bids
and was being consulted
throughout the process.

“I don’t have a problem with anything,” Giver
replied.
Getting those bids out
of the way allows the project to get going during the
prime construction season
while providing some time
for alders to hash out costsaving options. In addition
to the question of concrete,
which won’t need to be
decided for a few weeks,
alders are also likely to
debate whether to include
a sixth apparatus bay, a fire
pole and certain kinds of
bay doors.
The city has already
chipped away close to a
half-million dollars from
the original estimate, with
Monday’s bids more than
$100,000 less than budgeted and some previous
changes to materials and
design shaving another
$300,000 or so. Several
alternates have been set
up to allow the council to
shave even more.
As it stands, the overall construction project is
anticipated to be $9.2 million in contracts plus another $1.2 million in “soft
costs,” such as architect
fees and furnishings for the
building.

What is the root of all evil? Some say selfishness, and Saint
Paul said it was the love of money, but perhaps it is really
just fear, since fear is at bottom the unwillingness or inability to trust God. While we should be a bit dubious about
reducing everything, especially something as complicated as
sin or evil, to one simple thing, the more we reflect on this
the more we see that fear does indeed reside at the basis
of many sins. Consider how greed (or the love of money)
derives from a fear that our future will be destitute and that
money will somehow guarantee our security. Negative emotions like jealousy and envy are often borne of the fear that
we will lose our loved ones to more attractive or talented
rivals. Anger is quite often just fear that has turned outward:
the startled response to a slammed door is quickly replaced
by anger directed at the door slammer. But, perhaps this is
as it should be: anger and fear are appropriate at the right
time and place, and when tempered by reason and mercy.
Perhaps no one thing is the root of all evil and perhaps there
are many roots of many evils. Greed is one thing, while fear
and anger are another, or to quote Joseph Butler, “everything is what it is and not another thing.”
- Christopher Simon via Metro News Service
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for
I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will
uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Association might be
able to help and that the
state’s disaster fund – created in the wake of the 2005
Stoughton tornado that
killed one person and did
$44 million in damage –
should be able to help cover
municipal expenses.
Gov. Scott Walker, who
toured the damage hours
after the storm, last week
declared a state of emergency for the counties of
Dane, Grant and Green in
response to the storms.
“The damage caused by
the tornadoes and severe
storms, which hit southern Wisconsin has the full
attention and resources of
the State,” Walker said in a
news release.
That includes Country
View, though most of its
damage – including replacing the entire roof – will
be covered by the district’s
insurance policy.
Demolition on a few
destroyed classrooms on
the northwest side of the
school began late last week
as crews assessed the damage, and Verona Area
School District superintendent Dean Gorrell remained
optimistic Monday the
school would open in time
for the beginning of the
school year.

Cathleen Morland’s home on Tamarack Way had the side of the garage ripped off by the storm, along
with having a window or two damaged.

Homes take a hit
One of the hardest-hit
homes was Suzanne Qualia’s, on a property just west
of Country View.
Qualia realized that the
top part of her house had
been ripped away when
she felt the rain on her face
while standing in her basement, where she and her
son had taken shelter.
She knew what to expect
when she managed to get
out after the storm passed.

their lives that night by
coming upstairs to wake
them up and telling them to
get to the basement.
Gus said he doesn’t feel
like a hero, as his actions
were similar to many of his
neighbors’.
“I thought there might
be storms, and I don’t like
storms, anyways, so I went
down to the basement to
sleep,” he said. “My phone
alert went off, and I woke
up and didn’t think much
of it because it was from 10
minutes ago.
“Then the sirens went
off, and I told my parents
to come downstairs. I felt it
might be something.”
That’s a sentiment many,
like the Brouwers, likely
shared in response to the
weather Monday night. But
apparently many people
heeded the warnings that
were delivered on newer
cellular phones and by the
county’s storm sirens –
which some people said
they couldn’t hear but the
county reported all operated
correctly.
Gus’ parents added
another common sentiment, at least among people
in their neighborhood: the
annoyance they had in the
aftermath of the many people who walked around to
gawk at the damage.
Though at least for the
first day, police were turning away onlookers with no
official business from the
neighborhood, there still
appeared to be plenty of loiterers. And some, they said,
got in the way of clean-up
crews as they took photos
with their smartphone cameras.
“After everything, we just

was destroyed, exposing
interior walls and that stairwell to the life-saving basement.
“Just based on how
it sounded, I was not
shocked,” she said. “It felt
that bad as I was going
through it. I was surprised
that as much of it is still
here as it is.”
By Tuesday night, less
than 24 hours after the
storm, clean-up crews
could be seen placing tarps
over places where the roof
had been in preparation
for another storm that was
anticipated to hit later that
night.
But perhaps surprisingly,
the home – built in 2008
by the Verona Area High
School’s student building
trades program – will not
need to be torn down.
That will shorten the
amount of time it will take
to get Qualia into her home
and into daily life. She and
her son were relocated to
the Holiday Inn Express,
which she said took them in
despite being at full capacity.
“They just made space
for us,” she said. “A couple
of the area hotels wouldn’t
take us because we had
a dog, but they made an
exception. It really worked
out.”
Qualia’s neighbors also
suffered severe damage to
their home. Next door, a
garage was almost totally
torn off its foundation. And
another home down the
street had most of its roof
ripped away.
The owners of the home,
who agreed to talk only
after being assured their
names wouldn’t be printed,
said it was their teenage
son, Gus, who had saved

probably be spooked for
a while when big storms

Scary experience
Even for those who managed to escape with minor
damage to their property,
being in the path of the
tornado was a frightening
experience.
Cathleen Morland, who
had the side of her Tamarack Way garage ripped
off and one of her windows
broken, says she will never

forget the sounds she heard
that night. She had a hard
time finding the words to
describe it during her interview.
“The whole house started
to shake,” she said. “I’ve
never seen anything like
it, ever. The noise was like
a train. That’s the nearest
thing I can think of.”
Morland never made
it to her basement, and
instead watched the storm
unfold from the top of her
stairs. As she ventured

CV PTO raising funds
Members of the Country
View Elementary School
parent-teacher organization were inundated with
emails last week from parents looking to help in the
aftermath of the tornado
that severely damaged the
school Tuesday.
Rachel Cannistraro, the
organization’s vice president, said the group had to
ask itself “How can we as
an organization help?”
“Our first reaction was
just heartbreak for the families and also for our staff,”
Cannistraro said. “It’s a
home away from home.”
She said while many
“immediately … wanted to
just jump up and run to the
school,” they recognized
they needed to help in other
ways as professional crews
handled the clean-up at
the school and even posted
security to prevent trespassers into what they called a
dangerous area.
Instead, the group decided to fundraise for anything
the school district’s insurance might not cover – even
though superintendent Dean
Gorrell told the Press insurance would cover any supplies that could be inventoried from the damaged

rooms.
The PTO held a meeting
Thursday night and discussed ideas for the children
to help, as well, including
bake sales, lemonade stands
and a T-shirt sale.
“We anticipate a great
response, because our community … is a really great
community,” Cannistraro
said. “This is a Verona thing.
This is our school district.
Whatever we can do to make
somebody’s life easier.”
The fundraisers will also
provide money to neighborhood families who need
new school supplies, whether they attend Country View
or not, Cannistraro said.
“You get the community
together and every little bit
adds up,” she said.

Although some houses
did not sustain much, if any
direct damage, a walk down
Tamarack Lane late Tuesday night revealed obvious
damage to trees on many
properties.
Throughout the week,
despite seemingly constant trips ferrying the
debris away, leftover trees
and brush were lining the
streets, and especially on
the first day, it made getting
around the neighborhood a
challenge.
Darryl and Lisa Graham
had some scratched siding
and had a shingle or two
disappear with the storm,
but the majority of their
property damage was their
trees. To them, that was a
relief.
“It’s pretty minimal considering other houses in the
neighborhood,” Darryl said.
“Literally across the driveway, they’ve got a tree in
their house. We’ve seen it
all.”
But Wagner said insurance policies likely don’t
cover tree removal in the
case of a tornado other than
removing it from a house or
fence if it lands on either.
Once that tree is placed on
the ground, he said, further
removal is usually up to the
homeowner.
“Unfortunately, because
(insurance) can’t pay for
every branch that blows off
every tree in the world,”
Wagner said. “It’s pretty
much universal (among
policies).”
Wagner, who said he
personally has “about 30
or 40 claims” in the neighborhood, estimated the cost
of damage to the neighborhood in the millions.
Cindy Bong was forced
to cut down a dozen trees
off of her Cross Country
Road property due to the
damage caused to them by
the storm, and now has an
unwanted view of the street
she didn’t have before.
On Thursday, half a dozen people could be seen on
or near Bong’s Town of
Verona property, helping
clean up the debris.
In addition to the tree
losses, Bong’s recently
remodeled home sustained
minor structural damage,
as water started coming
through the roof.
Jane Knudsen’s home on
Nine Mound Road lost a
barn where six classic cars
were stored, as well as sustaining damage to her roof
and having her pickup truck
totaled. All six stored cars
were destroyed when the
barn’s roof came off and
the they were strewn about
the property.
“It was terrible,” she
said. “I watched the whole
damn thing (from the basement). … They were flying
around, just going in circles
and circles and circles.”
Knudsen said she never
had to leave her home and
all the damage will be covered by insurance, except
for the gigantic tree off
Nine Mound Road that was
literally torn limb from
limb.
Though she said as a
farmer’s daughter, her
dad “trained” her about

of damage the storm had
done, her thoughts immediately turned to her daughter
Katherine and her grandson
Justin, who live right down
the road from her.
“I saw my daughter come
down the street running, no
jacket on, in the pouring
rain,” she said. “She wanted
to know how I was doing; I
was worried about her.”
A commonly used word
in the tornado-ravaged area
among people whose homes
had only have minor damage was “lucky.”
Bob Volkman is one of
them.
He had a satellite dish
taken out during the storm,
but he was thankful his
television service was the
only causality for his family. Three trees landed in
his daughter’s room on
Kettle Woods Drive, but
fortunately for her, she had
been at a friend’s house for
a sleepover.
It’s hard to tell yet how
long it will take for the
emotional or psychological
scars to heal after a traumatic event that affected
nearly everyone in the
neighborhood in one way or
another.
According to the National Institute of Mental
Health, it’s not uncommon
for people to experience
post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) “after living
through or seeing a dangerous event,” including a tornado.
“It’s natural to be afraid

Trio makes All-State team
JEREMY JONES
Sports editor

Senior pitcher Emma Ray,
sophomore center fielder Heather
Rudnicki and junior shortstop Kori
Keyes were linchpins for a Verona
Area softball team that recaptured
the Big Eight Conference title and
returned to the WIAA state tournament for the first time in four years
this season.
Earlier this month the trio was
named to the Wisconsin Fastpitch
Softball Coaches Association’s
2014 All-State team.
Ray, a Northern Illinois University recruit who posted a 20-2
record on the season, led the way,

being selected to the second team.
She struck out 150 in 139 innings
and walked 33.
Batting third in the order, Ray
also did plenty of damage with her
bat this season, leading the team
in batting average (.519), hits (43)
and RBIs (30).
Rudnicki, the Verona lead-off
hitter, earned a spot on the second
third team after scoring a teambest 37 runs and finishing second
on the team with 41 hits. She hit
.471.
Keyes earned honorable mention
All-State honors, hitting .366 with
eight doubles and 15 RBIs.
Ray, Keyes and Rudnicki
were also named first-team Big

Eight All-Conference. Madison La Follette pitcher Nicole
Newman and Ray shared coPlayer of the Year honors.
Newman and Sun Prairie senior
catcher Cheyenne Holmes were
the only Big Eight Conference
players to be tabbed for first-team
honors.
Newman, who is headed for
Drake University, was last year’s
Gatorade Wisconsin Player of the
Year. This year, she had a 22-5
record and 0.42 earned-run average, recording 391 strikeouts and
19 walks in 185 innings.
She had one five-inning perfect game against Oregon in the
playoffs in which all 15 outs she

recorded were by strikeout. Newman also led the Lancers in hitting
with a .534 average, seven home
runs and 19 RBIs.
Ray split head-to-head against the
Lancers to help the Wildcats (171) wrap up their first conference
title since 2010. Verona defeated
Newman in the sectional finals 2-0
to advance to the team’s first state
tournament in four years.
Senior corner infielder Bea Kealy
joined Keyes on the infield. Kealy
hit .472 and was the only girl on
the team to collect double-digit
extra basehits with 10 doubles and
one triple. She scored 23 runs to go

Q and A: Toomey earns Big Ten Medal of Honor for top male athlete
Former Verona
Area High School
and University of
swimming standout Derek Toomey
was named a winner of this year’s
B1G Medal of
Honor, represent- Toomey
ing the top male
athlete.
The Big Ten, the nation’s oldest collegiate conference, commemorates the 100th anniversary
of a very unique tradition – the
Big Ten Medal of Honor.
The conference’s most exclusive award was the first of its
kind in intercollegiate athletics to

recognize academic and athletic
excellence.
The Big Ten Medal of Honor
was first awarded in 1915 to one
student-athlete from the graduating class of each university who
had “attained the greatest proficiency in athletics and scholastic
work.”
Big Ten schools currently feature more than 8,200 student-athletes, but only 24 earn this prestigious award on an annual basis.
In the 99 years of the Medal of
Honor, more than 1,300 studentathletes have earned the distinction.
Toomey’s list of accomplishments is long, and his swimming

career is far from over, including
the school’s 50 free (18.95) and
100 free record (42.42). He was
also part of the school’s 200 free
relay record (1:16.78).
Toomey was a 15-time AllAmerican, including a threetime, first-team All-American)
and a three-time Academic AllBig Ten selection
A co-captain his junior and
senior year, he also earned firstteam All-Big Ten selection (2013
and 2014).
Below is a Q-and-A session
with Toomey from the University
of Minnesota.
UM: What does receiving the
Big Ten Medal of Honor mean

to you?

Minnesota?

DT: Receiving this award is quite
an honor, and means a lot to me.
It feels great that I’ve been
able to bring this award back to
the men’s swimming and diving team, since the last male on
this team to win it was in the late
90’s.
I have always put a lot of
emphasis on hard work in the
pool, in the classroom, and in the
community, and I’m very glad
my hard work has paid off in so
many ways.

DT: That’s a tough question,
there are so many to choose
from. Living in Pioneer Hall
freshmen year, meeting new people and exploring the college life,
certainly provided me with great
memories.
As being part of the team for
four years, I’ve been to countless
championship meets, an international meet, training trips to
Hawaii and even joined in on the
Harlem Shake craze as we danced
in the snow ... in our speedos.

credits his 22 employees for
that atmosphere, and said
that while there have been
issues here and there (their
ticket system went down
one day and they mixed up
plenty of orders), he’s glad
to say he’s learning from
them.
“We’ve had 99 percent

live and you learn from it.” Below, Orange Leaf frozen yogurt brings a brighter atmosphere to the Hometown Circle complex with its orange-themed seats and plenty
of flavors.

The pizza chain brought
a new feature to Verona – a
drive-through window.
It’s the first of its kind for
the chain in Dane County,
and something store manager Ryan Jones expects
will be especially useful
“once weather is inclement” in the unpredictable
Wisconsin winter.
“It’s going to be a fabulous thing once it starts
snowing,” Jones said.
Owner Joe Vancik said
he’s worked the drivethrough often since the
June 3 opening and heard
extremely positive feedback.
“They just can’t believe
how cool it is to get pizza
through the drive-through
window,” Vancik said.
Jones said business since
the June 3 opening has been
“right in line” with other
stores around the county,
and the new location had
been in “large demand”
before it opened.
He also echoed Day’s
sentiments about the new

business neighbors, saying he knows about 60 percent of the Brews Brothers
staff and around 30 percent
of Orange Leaf’s staff, in
addition to having worked
with U.S. Cellular for the
store’s grand opening.
“It’s really cool,” he said.

Orange Leaf
Whether after pizza or a
burger, Orange Leaf’s location right next door offers a
quick stop for dessert or a
frozen summer treat.
The frozen yogurt store
opened June 18, and store
manager David Beach said
it’s been successful in its
first week, especially with
the baseball fields right
across East Verona Avenue
bringing plenty of families to the area. The store
is open from 11 a.m. to 11
p.m. for the summer and
has 24 employees.

U.S. Cellular
The new location for the
Quality Cellular branch
of U.S. Cellular offers a

bigger, cleaner space with
improved natural light and
better energy, said marketing manager Rachel Perry.
“(This) is a million times
better,” she said.
Quality Cellular owner
Kris Roehrig, a Verona resident, said customers have
echoed that sentiment.
“You don’t always know
how much your customer reacts to a store that’s
smaller, in an older part of
town but we’ve had customers at the new store
say ‘we really like the new
one,’” Roehrig said. “They
didn’t always like the parking at the old one.”
The store was previously
located at 600 W. Verona
Ave.
Perry said a recent grand
opening event and advertising through social media
and the Press had helped
inform customers of the
new location. She added
that the location, with three
restaurants and a Great
Clips to come, should help
drive customers their way.

what they’ve each dealt with during the process.

Helping hands
From the first minutes
after the tornado to several
days later, volunteers and
neighbors have been helping out with the cleanup
and recovery. In many cases, they’ve been around for
hours each day.
Immediately following
the tornado, homeowners like Qualia called 911
for help, and emergency
responders were on the
scene “within minutes.”
At Monday’s Common
Council meeting, Mayor

Jon Hochkammer commended and thanked the
many first responders and
volunteers who helped out,
as well as “those of you
who stayed away” for not
getting in the way.
Town of Verona administrator Amanda Arnold
called the week since the
tornado “hectic,” but said
crews from the town had
helped residents by picking
up debris that was placed at
the curb.
“We don’t normally do
brush pick up in the town,”

she said. “This was something we cobbled together
for this situation.”
The town also put Dumpsters at Town Hall for brush
and building debris, plus
another at the top of Hula
Drive. Arnold said the
Dumpsters would remain
through Friday, when the
Public Works staff would
have to return to its normal
activities.

help they received.

INVITATION TO BID
2014 BITUMINOUS SEAL
COAT PROJECT
CITY OF VERONA, WI

If you have looked on
the Internet for information
about last week’s tornado,
you could have come across
some confusing information.
Verona, N.Y. – the city
Verona, Wis., was named
after – also experienced a
tornado last Tuesday.

In that case, according
to a story on syracuse.com,
an EF0 twister tore through
11 miles of land outside
the city, damaging several
sheds, a barn, trees, homes
and buildings. There were
no injuries reported.

people out there,” Knudsen
said. “All of them were so
helpful. It was just wonderful.”
And when Brouwer
began speaking about what
the volunteers had done for
her, she lost her previously
strong composure and let
her emotions out.
“It was just overwhelming,” she explained as a
tear rolled down her face.
“There were so many volunteers. People you don’t
know bringing food by...
The (Memorial) Baptist
Church made us leave
because they wanted to
make sure everything was
safe before they let us back
in.”
In addition to assistance
from local churches, companies such as Home Depot

sent out crews of volunteers
to assist with the clean-up
over a span of days, and
nearby restaurant owners
stopped by to hand out gift
cards to those impacted by
the storm.
Country View’s ParentTeacher Organization also
decided to put its efforts
toward recovery and helping those affected, using
Facebook and its website to
start fundraisers and discuss
what exactly it could do to
help.
The city did its part in
serving the community, as
well, with Brouwer’s neighbors receiving help clearing
out tree and brush debris
from “serious tree guys”
who had been asked to help
by the city.

In the midst of the tragedy that the community

Summer days are here
The Wisconsin Brewing Company held its first annual Summer
Solstice Celebration Saturday, June 21.
People gathered, despite rain dampening the first half of the
event, outside and played bean bags, floated on inner tubes in the
retention pond and took horse rides in a Belgian Horse Carriage.
There was also live music and a bonfire in a donated fire pit
where families roasted marshmallows.
