Wal-Mart
asks for
feedback

Three professional consultants will answer
questions from the public at an informational
open house next week about Stoughton’s proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is hosting the event to
display plans and solicit feedback on the proposal, spokeswoman Delia Garcia explained.
“The purpose of the open house is for our
team to present some concepts to the community and to get the feedback on what we’re
proposing for the new Supercenter in Stoughton,” she said.

plans and respond to
comments about the
anchor tenant of the multimillion-dollar Kettle Park West development. The development
has drawn criticism from some in the community both for its proposed use of tax-increment financing (TIF) and for the presence of a
Supercenter.
“We’ll have our team of consultants (an
architect, civil engineer and a public affairs
director) on hand to meet one-on-one, answer
questions, present our ideas and get feedback from the community,” Garcia said. “We
designed the open house to encourage that
dialogue.”
Those attending will have an opportunity to
view renderings of the proposed building and
the site plan, talk with the experts and express
ideas or concerns.
Wal-Mart has proposed building an approximately 152,000-square-foot store to replace an
existing 41,000-square-foot Wal-Mart on U.S.
Hwy. 51 in the city. That store was built in 1988.
“We’ve outgrown the ability to serve our
customers with all of the products and services that they want and need,” Garcia said.
She noted that the nearest Supercenter is in
Monona, and she added that Wal-Mart wants
to make “one-stop shopping more convenient
for our Stoughton customers.”
The Supercenter would carry a full line of
groceries, a pharmacy and general merchandise.
She estimated it would create about 85 new
jobs, in addition to the jobs already provided
at the existing store.
“It’s about job growth – that’s full and

Downtown Stoughton has an “old”
look that provides it with much of its
charm and unique personality. In the
next few weeks, though, that look will
be infused with some businesses sure to
bring some new looks – and tastes – to
the area.
The most prominent is the Viking
Brew Pub, which has been in the works
for more than a year and takes over a
spot next to the Yahara River Grocery
Co-op. It will eventually feature its
own in-house brewery, with a modest
selection of craft beers.
The Main Street Pour House closed
its doors earlier this year, in essence
making way for two new businesses –
one in its old location (Wendigo) and
the other created by a former general
manager (Fahrenheit 364). Wendigo,
operated by the owners of Famous
Yeti’s Pizza, is scheduled to open later
this month, and will continue Yeti’s
fun, monster-style theme. Fahrenheit
364, set to open next month, is located

Vik’s side of the family came from

“Sometimes it’s been more trouble

Besides eventually brewing its own

The bulk of the work is
at the high school, including removal of tiles and
improvements to the cafeteria. The “Fab Lab” has been
moved, and school’s former
darkroom has been renovated to make room for gifted
and talented programming.
“It was a messy place,
and we reconverted that to a
really nice office area, and
we did that internally,” he
said.
Adams and his crew created re-seeding plans for
each school and created a
germination chamber to
help reduce germination
time to five days, but the
summer weather has prevented full-scale implementation.
“Unfortunately the
weather has been horrible,”
he said. “We had a great

start of the (summer), but
mid-summer has been pretty bad.

fall or early next year to

A plan to make improvements to the Norse Park
shelter will need some
tweaking after bids for the
project were higher than
budgeted.
City Parks and Recreation director Tom Lynch
said staff members planned
to meet this week to discuss
how to move forward with
the plan.
The city had originally
budgeted about $138,000
for the project with hopes
that it would be completed
by volunteers. But Lynch
said as they began to plan
more, staff realized the
project should be professionally bid and built.
The shelter, originally
built in 1979, is in need of
repair and is not compliant
with the Americans with
Disabilities Act standards,
Lynch told the Hub. The
new shelter designs that
were bid out would have
nearly doubled the shelter size to a total of about
3,400 square feet. The new
space would have room for
up to 18 picnic tables under
the canopy and twice as
many bathroom facilities.

Dane County races

The new shelter design
also updated the bathroom
areas to be more accessible.
Specifically, the doors were
moved to the outside of
the building to allow park
users to access the restrooms without having to
go through the middle of a
group that had reserved the
main shelter building. Plans
also called for the addition
of a family restroom.
Staff also included a bid
option that would extend

the park shelter by about
12 feet to give groups even
more space.
Lynch said the project
would be a complement
to other plans for the park.
The Stoughton Inclusive
Dream Park group is raising
money to make a park that
is accessible to people of all
ability levels. Lynch said
the shelter improvements
are necessary on their own,
and wouldn’t affect plans
for the dream park.

District administrator
Tim Onsager noted that the
district and city of Stoughton will be featured in the
September issue of “In

“It’s a good issue to be

Summer vacation may be
in its third month for many
Stoughton Area School
District students, but construction workers have been
plenty busy in the meantime, helping to build or
upgrade a variety of facilities in preparation for the
new school year to start
next month.
From remodeling the
Stoughton High School
facade and improving lighting on the football field
to reconfiguring rooms at
River Bluff Middle School,
work has been ongoing
since students’ last day of
the season in June.
District buildings and
grounds supervisor Scott
Adams updated the school
board Monday night on a
variety of projects; most
finished, and some nearing
completion.
“It’s been a busy summer; a very productive
summer,” he said.
Traffic marking is underway at the schools, as workers re-stripe the pavement,
and about 30 new projectors are being installed in
various schools. Rooms
were re-configured at River
Bluff Middle School after
much planning.
“We’re really smashed
for space there,” Adams
said. “We took three rooms
and converted it to two
counselor areas, a meeting
room and a conference area.
That allows more accommodations that make logical sense in the front office
area, and prepares us for a
secured entrance, and we
want to do that.”

Letters to the editor

More community discussion
needed about sex offender release
I find it strange that there has
been no discussion regarding the
release of a “violent sex offender”
into Stoughton.
It is not simply that this man
has served his time and has come
to live in Stoughton. He is still
considered a “sexually violent
person” and will have DHS supervision for one year along with a
GPS monitor for life.
He has moved to a property in
Stoughton that has been purchased
by the government to house violent sex offenders who will be
released from a Mauston facility.
He is the only person there now,
but there is room for more.
Over the last few years we have
had endless debate in Stoughton
over the addition of “big box”
stores and a radio tower to our
community. Yet, the purchase of
a property with taxpayer money
to house “violent sex offenders” gets a small notice in the

paper on the day that this criminal is moving into Stoughton.
Who is paying for this house and
this man to live comfortably in it?
I do not mind my tax dollars going to keep this man
incarcerated, but I do mind
paying when he is free to roam. A
GPS monitor lets you know where
he, but not what he is doing.
I am disgusted that this can happen without any community conversation.

The CJCC consists of the Attorney General, the Secretary of the

Hebl
the wide array
of actors within
the statewide criminal justice
system and provide recommendations about how to improve
the system. I believe that this is
a worthy model that should be
enacted into law.
In addition to the CJCC’s other
responsibilities, AB 789 would
require the CJCC to comprehensively review Wisconsin’s current OWI policies and make specific OWI-related policy recommendations to the governor and
the legislature within 18 months
of the council’s creation. This
review would include essential
information about what existing
Wisconsin policies actually work
and what current policies need to
be changed. It would also include

important data about effective
policies implemented by other
states and countries. This data
would inform the CJCC’s recommendations to the legislature and
the governor. The legislature and
governor would then be responsible to take the necessary actions
to implement OWI policies that
efficiently spend taxpayer money
to enhance public safety and
reduce recidivism.
This model is designed to
ensure that the legislature begins
to approach the very serious
problem of drunk driving in a
deliberative, comprehensive and
non-politicized manner.
I believe that members of the
legislature have a duty to our
constituents to get these important policies right and that it is
worth taking our time so we can
make informed decisions.
Given the massive amounts of
taxpayer dollars that are allocated
to our criminal justice and corrections systems to combat drunk
driving, I believe that it is certainly worthwhile to expand the
CJCC’s current role so that it can
provide much-needed coordination and guidance to policymakers.

Letter to the editor

TIF district will hurt other businesses, homeowners
Tax Incremental Financing
(TIF) districts have been around
for many years.
Cities have traditionally used
them to invest in redevelopment
of blighted areas, or to create
industrial parks. The idea is that
when the property is made more
valuable, the increased taxes on
the property can be used to pay
for the expense of improvements
made by the city.
But there are down sides to TIF
districts.
The Kettle Park West developer
is asking the city to create a TIF district, and have the city pay for more
than $5 million of the developments cost. This is a great deal for
the developer and owners of businesses that move into Kettle Park
West. The developer can provide
cheaper leasing rates, and cheaper

ownership costs for businesses.
However, these cheaper costs
give Kettle Park businesses an
unfair advantage over existing
retail businesses in Stoughton.
Many cities will not use TIF’s
for retail developments because
of this unfair advantage over
existing retail establishments.
Pick ‘n Save, Stoughton Lumber,
Asselson’s and other retail establishments, that have paid taxes
for years, will be hurt because
Kettle Park West businesses will
have cheaper operating costs.
This advantage will cause some
existing tax-paying businesses to
close.
It will also drive down the
value of existing retail property
throughout the city, reducing
the taxes paid on these properties, and increasing taxes for

homeowners.
In addition, the city, school
district, county and technical college are all being short changed
by not being able to collect taxes
on these properties until the TIF
is paid off. This means they lose
out on millions of tax dollars that
should be used to educate our
kids and keep our taxes down.
The Walton family, which still
controls Wal-Mart, is the richest
family in the world, with assets
of over $150 billion. They don’t
need Stoughton taxpayers to foot
the bill for their new store. They
do it because they can, and getting someone else to pay your
bills is one of the easiest ways to
make money.

that space I first walked into
again,” Stanton told the Hub.
“And I’m looking forward to
meeting the kids and reminiscing back.”
After she discusses her
newest book and sharing her
journey to authorhood, participants will craft map necklaces using Mod podge, old
maps and beads.
Registration is not

toward teens entering grades
6-12, though it is open for
anyone interested.

Close to home
While Stanton’s most
recent book is set in Europe,
most of them take place in
the Midwest.
Having spent first grade
through high school in
Stoughton, Stanton based the
town in one of her popular
novels, “Rock and a Hard
Place,” off of Stoughton.
“While it’s called Rockville, in my mind it was
Stoughton,” Stanton
explained. “I had in mind the
A&W Drive-In where the
waitresses wore rollerskates,
and the movie theater and all
that kind of stuff.”
Other Wisconsin places
that have made subtle and
not-so-subtle debuts in Stanton’s works include Parfrey’s
Glen in Devil’s Lake State
Park and Moon Beach Camp
in Wisconsin’s Northwoods.

written six contemporary
romance young adult novels. Her best-selling titles
include “Snapshot” and
“Snowed Over.”
Her most recent book,
“Royally Lost,” was published on May 6 by HarperTeen and follows teenage girl Becca as she is
dragged throughout Europe
on a bothersome family
trip. Becca’s boring vacation takes a wild turn when
she unwittingly finds herself
with a runaway prince.
Like “Rock and a Hard
Place,” the locales used in
the book were places familiar to Stanton, given that
they were modeled off one
of Stanton’s own European
trips.
“My husband and I took a
riverboat cruise in Europe,”
explained Stanton. “It started in Budapest and ended in
Germany, with a side trip to
Prague.”
Throughout the trip,
Stanton kept asking herself, “What if I were a teenager who didn’t want to be
there?” in order to best create a believable character.
While Stanton admittedly did not take any crazy
motorcycle rides or run off
with a prince, personally
experiencing each location
allowed her to realistically
depict them as she wrote,
she said.

Former Stoughton resident Angie Stanton will speak about her new
book ‘Royally Lost’ Aug. 12, at the Stoughton Public Library.

Despite lacking a natural
inclination toward writing,
Stanton was always an avid
reader and daydreamer.
“That stuck with me into
adulthood,” Stanton said. “I
got to a point where I had
a story in my head and it
wouldn’t go away, so I tried
to write it down.”
It took a few failed
attempts but eventually she
wrote her first story.
Since then her imagination

has continued to reel.
“One of the most fun parts
about being an author is
being able to dream up new
people and new adventures
for them to be on,” Stanton
said.
Stanton’s advice for aspiring writers draws from her
own experience.
She calls it simple and
silly but, “the most useful”
advice she has is, “just sit
down and write.”

Writing roots

While Stanton has proven
to be a successful author,
her journey to becoming a
young adult novelist was far
from simple.
According to her website,
“Stanton never planned on
writing books – she wanted
to be a Rockette. However,
growing up in rural America
with her brothers’ 4-H pigs
as pets, she found that dance
didn’t quite work out.”

Ultimately, there are only two
basic motives which animate us,
kindness or cruelty. On the side of
kindness is everything that unites
and uplifts us: the kind or encouraging word, the helping or healing
hand, the invitation to join the group
and to be a part of the great family of God. On the side of cruelty is
everything that divides and debases:
the mean or cutting remark, the
discouraging word, the clenched fist
and the hand which pushes away,
the barrier to inclusion which says
you aren’t welcome here. There is
love and there is strife. Love unites;
strife divides. Love is kind; strife
is cruel. There is no third option
here. You cannot be indifferent to
the choice between kindness and
cruelty. We should pray that we
steadfastly choose to be on the side
of kindness.
- Christopher Simon via Metro
News Service
I expect to pass through this
world but once. Any good therefore
that I can do, or any kindness that I
can show to any fellow creature, let
me do it now. Let me not defer it or
neglect it, for I shall not pass this
way again.

Firing on all cylinders

Merchants lock up homefield advantage with win
over A’s at Utica Fest
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

Stoughton ace Jeremy Dunnihoo
went the distance while Dave Hanson, Rory Menzer and TJ DiPrizio
each drove in a pair of runs Saturday as the Merchants locked up
home field advantage throughout the
Southeast Section playoffs.
Dunnihoo, one of only a handful of players new to the Merchants
rivalry with Utica (growing up in the
Fox Cities), allowed nine hits and
walked six, but only allowed one
earned run en route to the 8-2 victory.
“I’ve kind of learned about the
rivalry the past two years,” said Dunnihoo, who made his pitching debut
in Utica on Saturday.
A unique field with only a backstop and an outfield fence pushed
up against a cornfield – the up-closeand-personal fans enjoyed the rivalry
with a combination of cheers and
jeers rivaling that of the players – all
amidst the smoke and continuous
tractor pulls that signify Utica Fest.
“Everyone told me that the sidelines would be packed, but I guess I
didn’t really put much into it,” Dunnihoo said. “But it’s a great rivalry.”
That’s what is nice about playing
Utica in the final game of the year,
Dunnihoo continued. “Both teams
come to play no matter what their
records are.”
With the win, top-seeded Stoughton (14-2) hosts Albion, who they
defeated twice during the regular season, in the first round of the
playoffs at 1 p.m. Sunday at Norse
Park. Despite finishing third in the
West Division with an identical 12-4
record, the Tigers were able to steal
second-place Clinton’s playoffs
spot via tiebreaker (WHICH TIEBREAKER?).
“To get home field throughout (the
playoffs), it’s kind of big,” Stoughton manager Dale Seffens said.
Though Stoughton was on the
road throughout its run to the Final
Four last year, Seffens said, “It’ll be
nice to play in front of our fans and
make a few dollars in our concession
stand.”

The winner of Stoughton/Albion

“I’ll think we’re a little more solid
than last year,” Seffens said. “Last
year we came on a little at the end of

in the bottom of the second and
advanced to second after Chris Lund
hit a one-out ground ball to short that
was mishandled by DiPrizio. With

everyone to show up to the

a tough out.”
Menzer led off the inning,
lining a shot up the box off
second baseman Doug Vike.
Gerber then legged out an
infield single before Eric Gerber sacrificed the runners up
to second and third.
Following a single to center
by eldest brother Sean Gerber,
DiPrizio sacrificed in a third
Stoughton run.
The Merchants, who never
trailed from that point, added
another two runs in the fourth
and one more in the sixth
thanks to a Menzer RBI double single and a wild pitch by
Kyle Bates leading into the
ninth inning.
“We need to start hitting
the ball,” Utica manager Dale
Vike said. “We didn’t need
to really play small-ball early
with the lead and then we dug
ourselves into too big of a
hole to get back out.”
Utica left 10 runners on
base, including six in scoring
position in the loss.
“If I hold the opposition
under seven runs, I feel we
have a good shot to win,”
Dunnihoo said. “We have
a good offense and we play
good defense too. We have a

few guys that can make some
unbelievable plays, and everyone is steady.
“It’s a very comfortable
feeling as soon as we get a
lead, or even if we go down,
that we can bounce back.”
Though Bates didn’t have
his best stuff on the mound,
allowing five earned runs on
10 hits, Utica didn’t make the
switch to reliever Dane Schultz until the eight inning.

team,” Vike said. “But we
also had a couple defensive
errors that hurt us.”
Schultz sat Stoughton
down in order for just the second time in the eighth inning
before the Merchants capped
the win with a pair of superfluous runs in the top of the
ninth as Ben Gerber cracked
a one-out home run into the
right-field cornfield. Following a ground out by brother
Eric Gerber, the Merchants
strung together their final
three hits, culminating with an
RBI single to DiPrizio.
Despite cruising throughout
most of the game, Dunnihoo
ran into a bit of trouble after
getting lead-off hitter Andy
Martin and Brad Ashmore
to ground out to DiPrizio at
shortstop. Dunnihoo followed
that up by walking Doug Vike
before Bates hit safely back
up the middle before Merchants manager Dale Seffens
called timeout.
Nearly as soon as Seffens
took a step toward the infield,
however, Dunnihoo motioned
his skipper back to the bench.
After a short talk on the
mound, Dunnihoo remained
in the game and got Ben Hildebrandt to hit a soft chopper
back to him for the final out.
Stoughton’s goal in the
playoffs this year is a simple
one this season, Dunnihoo
said, “We want one more win
than last year. We made it all
the way to the Final Four and
had a shot at the championship. We just came up short
in that last game. This year we
want to get over the hump and
seal the deal.”

benefits and competitive
pay, including affordable
health care, a companyfunded 401K, 10 percent
merchandise discount and
education assistance,” Garcia said.
She said Wal-Mart covers about two-thirds of an
employee’s health-care premium.
“That enables Wal-Mart
to lower the cost to all our
associates,” Gracia said.
“The most affordable health
care coverage starts at
about $18 per pay period –
about the price of a movie
ticket.”
She declined to say what
Wal-Mart pays for a starting wage.
“It depends on the particular person and their experience and the position,”
she said, but she added that
the average hourly full-time
wage for Wal-Mart associates in Wisconsin is $12.74
per hour.
The company has been
flirting with the idea of
building a Supercenter for
more than 10 years, and has
met considerable opposition, all the while steadily
gaining approvals from city
government.

Liquor request to get more review
The city got a first look at a request for a liquor
license at Wal-Mart’s proposed new store but no
approval was given after city officials requested more
details.
The city’s Public Safety Committee didn’t vote on
the proposed liquor license because officials wanted
more information about the plans, Ald. Paul Lawrence
(Dist. 3) told the Hub.
The company had submitted the request for the committee’s July 23 meeting.
City of Stoughton police chief Greg Leck wrote in a
memo that staff would recommend a conceptual approval at this point because no store has been approved yet.
Leck wrote that the store should require that the liquor
section be under 24-hour-per-day surveillance and that
it be able to lock the area off when carryout sales are
prohibited.
In a letter with the request, a lawyer for the company
said gates would be installed at the ends of the aisles to
restrict sales during certain times of the day.
Leck also requested in his memo that the store
“restrict the display and sale of small individual serve
liquor containers to reduce the likelihood of retail theft
by underage individuals.
Lawrence said the company will likely come back
with more detailed plans at the next meeting.
– Mark Ignatowski
in January that its anchor
tenant in the first phase of
the proposed development
would be Wal-Mart.
The Common Council
narrowly approved a development agreement with
FDG in late January featuring up to $5.1 million in
taxpayer funding, but it has
yet to approve the creation
of a TIF district or a TIF
project plan. The council
put those required steps on
hold until it sees the results
of an economic impact
study that’s currently in

progress.
Opposition to a new WalMart store ranges from
those who feel it would put
a strain on locally owned
businesses to some who
think the business would
have a competitive advantage to those who oppose
the company’s wage and
benefits policies.
Company officials project a store opening in late
2016, Garcia said.

NOW!

Something about handmade tu-tus hanging above
a bar table adorned with
beer bottlecaps next to
books on Reiki, crystal
healing and the paranormal
seems right at place along
Stoughton’s colorful Main
St.
Deborah Myren and Darlynn Hoare have lived in
Stoughton for decades, and
operate “Believe,” (155 W.
Main St.), a “metaphysical
gift shop” and much more.
The store has morphed from
an art gallery of the same
name to include a variety
of products and services
– everything from incense,
oils and crystals to books,
music and bird feeders.
There is also plenty of
artwork and other items
for sale from nearly 50
local artists, including a
wide spectrum of paintings,
clothing and more.
“We’ve got a little bit of
everything, and everything
that our consigners bring
in is hand-made,” Myren
said. “One of the reasons
we started this is to give
people an opportunity to get
the things they make out to
the public. A lot of people
make some really cool
stuff, and they just didn’t
have an outlet.”
The store also offers
classes and workshops on
topics like Reiki healing,
ionic foot baths, soul ray
colors, pendulum classes,
how to douse, medita tion, how to use essential
oils and more. The store
has a contracted psychic
who also conducts past-life
regressions and pet readings, and Myren and Hoare
are always looking for more
options for customers.
“Were still setting up the
store and trying to figure
out how to get in this one
room, all of these things we
want to have done,” Myren
said. “If people go to our
website, they can leave suggestions – ‘I’m looking how
to do this, or I have these
issues, can you help me
some way?’ We’re looking

for more people to come
and do more services.”

Not by accident
Hoare said she’s been “on
the path” to all things metaphysical, in part thanks to
her genetics, and also to her
first husband, who introduced to her to a psychic in
the 1980s, changing her life
forever.
“I was very parochial –
there was no life after death,
and anything like that was
kind of ‘woo-woo’ and he
was very holistic minded,”
she said. “Our son was born
in ‘93 and I really got into
the oils and how they were
healing and beneficial to
children, versus antibiotics
and vaccinations.”
Meeting that first psychic
really “opened the gate,”
Hoare said, as she learned
more about the abilities
passed along in her family.
“My mother was a psychic and my grandmother
- it’s like four or five generations,” she said. “At first
I was like, ‘No, it can’t be,’
but I got to thinking about
it. My great-grandmother
was very open about it.
My grandma, who got into
organized religion, was
more sequestered about
it but would say things,
and my mother was really guarded, because she
thought she would be
damned for life if she said,
‘I know what kind of baby
you’re going to have.’
“It’s been a lifestyle; it’s
just being a truth-seeker.”
As a non-denominational
minister since 2002, Hoare
offers spiritual counseling and performs weddings
and civil unions. She also
blesses and “clears” areas
as needed.
“People sometimes have
paranormal things going on

Visitors to Believe on Main Street can find a wide variety of products and services – everything from incense and oils to books and
bird feeders.

in their homes, and not only
do they want it cleared,
they want it blessed after
that,” Hoare said.
Hoare said she’s always
been a teacher at heart, and
is motivated to “lead people
to greatness.”
“I’ve always taught some
kind class or workshop,”
she said. “I’ve always
wanted to let people know
there’s more than what you
can see - gravity works,
you know – you jump off
the garage, and you can
count on it every time, and
you cant put it in a test
tube.”

New beginning
Hoare, who was friends
with the previous owner
who had an art gallery
in the store (also called
“Believe”) moved into
the back of the building in
January 2013 to do organic
hair coloring, manicures
and pedicures. The two met
when Myren took classes
from her, and before long
they started talking about
expanding things.
“I had always wanted to
have a store, and Darlynn
had always wanted a store,
but neither one of us knew
the other thought that way,”
Myren said. “It just clicked,
and we kept talking how it
would be really nice if we
could open the store again.”
In April, the two visited
the Rose Gallery in Lake
Mills, where they learned
a lot during an all-day factfinding mission.

“We said we’re thinking about this what do you
think, and (the staff) were
so wonderful,” she said.
“They said, ‘Let us show
you how we do it,’ they
gave us copies of their contacts, showed us the software they use – they gave
us all this information.
“When we got done, we
walked out and we were
both kinds of dazed, but we
both said at the same time,
‘I think we can do this.’”
With some hard work,
they had the store ready and
open for business for last
year’s Syttende Mai celebration.
“We really felt we were
divinely guided to do this,”
Myren said.
As the year has gone
along, the pace has picked
up at Believe, as well as
the amount of customers,
Myren said. Some know
what they’re getting into
when they open the door,
while others are in for a bit
of a surprise.
“Some people hit the door
and ‘Oh, my head hurts,
what is this place?’ and
there are others who come
in and say, Oh, we needed a
place like this,” she chuckled. “Every month our sales
get better, so we really feel
wonderful about the whole
thing. The winter was not
kind to us, but we hung
in there, and now that the
weather is nicer, people are
finding us, which is wonderful.”

Samantha Lee Cannady

Samantha Lee Cannady, age 4 of Stoughton,
passed peacefully at home
with family by her side
on Wednesday, July 30,
2014. She has courageously
fought brain cancer since
January of 2013.
Samantha, the daughter of Kevin and Jennifer
(Ott) Cannady was born
Nov. 17, 2009. In addition
to her parents, Samantha
is survived by her brother,
Jackson and half-sister,
Lainee; her grandparents,
Edward and Karen Ott; her
great-grandparents, Elton
and Rachel Ott; her aunt
Michelle Ott-Harbort; cousins Cassondra and Ashley;
aunt Kelly (Cannady) and
Gary Dvorak; cousin Cody
and Dystiny; and Godfather
Jesse Mason. Samantha was
preceded in death by her
grandparents Michael Cannady and Jan Cannady.
Samantha’s life on the
earth was too short but it
was filled with many special adventures.
Samantha became a Wish
Child when the Make-AWish Foundation provided
for her and her family a trip
to Disney World last July.
The Badgers Childhood
Cancer Network sponsors
many activities. One of
Sammy’s favorites was to
go fishing with her Daddy
on Lake Waubesa.
Samantha’s dream to be
a ballerina came true when
she participated in her first
ballet recital last April with
the Stoughton Center of

Performing Arts.
Samantha attended Martin Luther Child Care Center and was loved by all.
She enjoyed spending time
with her friends and always
came home sharing all that
she had learned.
Covenant Lutheran
Church was one of her
favorite places to go; in
fact, it became her second
home. The congregation
and Pastor Mark Petersen
have been an instrumental
part of Sammy’s life since
the day she was born.
One of Sammy’s favorite pastimes was creating
songs and then singing
them to her Mommy.
Samantha’s smile could
light up a room. Anyone
who has had the opportunity to meet Sammy, have
become better people. She
had a way of touching
everyone’s heart and soul.
Samantha will be dearly
missed. She will want you
to remember her infectious
giggle and kind heart.
Memorial services will be
held at Covenant Lutheran
Church, 1525 N Van Buren
Street, Stoughton, at 6 p.m.
on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014,
with Pastor Mark Petersen
officiating and a dinner to
follow. Visitation will be

Wendigo, 121 E. Main St., plans to open by mid-to-late August and
will feature products from local farmers and meat producers.

ConnectStoughton.com

Viking Brew Pub, 515 E. Main St., was scheduled to open its Nordic
pub the first week of August.

Fahrenheit 364, 364 E. Main St., is slated to open in September as
a cocktail bar with craft beers.

Brewing: New Main Street bars opening soon; aim to offer craft drinks, local ingredients
Continued from page 1
bar. Lori’s brother, Mitchell Brickson, was the artist who created it all, using
soft butternut wood.
“He’s a master craftsman
who moved from Florida and I had been thinking about a u-shaped bar
and different things, and
bounced an idea off him
about a longship; a dragon
ship,” Malling said. “He
didn’t say no, so I told him
to basically build it. He’s
extremely talented.”
Malling first got the idea
for starting a brew pub from

taking trips to area breweries with family members.
“I would travel with
my father-in-law to The
Grumpy Troll in Mount
Horeb or Madison, and one
day he said, ‘Somebody in
Stoughton is going to build
a craft brewery so we won’t
have to drive so far to have
a beer and a sandwich,’”
Malling said.
The Main Street location
is “the best” in Stoughton
for foot traffic, he said, and
he hopes to get plenty of
it this week; the pub was
scheduled to open Wednesday, Aug. 6.

“We’re relying on a lot
of people’s help,” said Lori
Malling, who hopes to open
the kitchen sometime in
September.
A brew house in Oconomowoc is making the
kettles for the pub and a
Ho-Chunk artist is creating taps. Later this fall, the
pub will start brewing its
own beer, which it so far
has been contracting out to
brewers in Madison. It will
offer three Viking-themed
brews to start – a Nordic Blond lager, Midnight
Sun cream ale and Soot
in My Eye IPA (a twist on

Syttende Mai), with more to
come.
“They cover a broad
spectrum of craft beers,”
Vik Malling said of the first
three. “Eventually, we’ll
have six or seven of our
own, and they will change
through the season – a winter beer, Oktoberfest, something for summer.”

Wendigo
Cale Ryan and Caitlin
Way are some busy people. The owners of Famous
Yeti’s Pizza (971 E. Page
St.) not only just got married in July, the couple is
planning to open a new restaurant next month called
“Wendigo,” in the building
vacated by the closing earlier this year of Main Street
Pour House, 121 E. Main
St.
Ryan said the last few
weeks and months have
been busy with renovations.
Plaster has been removed
down to the exposed brick,
among other changes.
“We’re just trying to
brighten it up and make it
more ours,” he said.
While Famous Yeti’s has
been successful, the couple
had always talked about
opening a second place,
Ryan said.
“We wanted to do a rustic Wisconsin deal, and
we always liked the name
‘Wendigo’ – it’s like a
monster that lived in the

woods; a famed mythical
creature that’s a little more
local and backwoodsy,
more local Wisconsin.”
The restaurant, which the
two hope to have open and
ready for customers by midto-late August, will feature
lots of products from local
farmers and meat producers.
“If anyone is interested,
contact us, even if it’s to
sell a couple herbs or veggies,” Ryan said. “We hope
to be known for the variety, and also an interesting
take on things. It’s just the
comfort, a Wisconsin feel,
and hopefully stuff people
haven’t had in town before,
like sauces, cheeses and
combinations.”
Ryan and Way can be
reached at Famous Yeti’s
Pizza at 877-1544.

Fahrenheit 364
After the Main Street
Pour House closed its
familiar location at 121 E.
Main St., general manager
Scott Sowlles was looking
to start and own his own
business.
He found the answer in
the former fire station on
364 E. Main St., a former
tattoo parlor that is slated
to open in September as
“Fahrenheit 364.” The
name is both a reference
to the site’s history and a
takeoff on Ray Bradbury’s
famous book-burning sci-fi

novel “Fahrenheit 451.”
“I wanted to stay with the
firehouse theme,” Sowlles
said.
The establishment will
start off as a “cocktail bar
with craft beers,” he said,
with hopes to add a kitchen
in the near future. Sowlles,
who worked for years as the
bar manager of the Madison
Club, said he has a strong
background in wine, as
well, so that will also be a
staple on the menu.
“I’m going to try to bring
that all together,” he said.
“I don’t want to step on any
toes, because I’m sure the
(Viking) brew pub will take
a lot of the craft beer market, but I look forward to a
synergy between the three
of these new places opening at the same time. Hopefully it will bring people to
town.”
Sowlles said he hopes the
new pubs can be the start of
a “renaissance” in downtown Stoughton, citing how
Cambridge used to be a dining destination.
