Major change in garbage collection
services coming in spring, 2014
The existing garbage collection
contract for the Village of Kohler
expires at the end of 2013, and the
Village has announced that it has
contracted with Advanced Disposal, which offers cutting edge
new technology for recycling and
hauling waste.
The biggest change residents
will notice is that all waste (with
the exception of special yard waste
and bulk items) will need to be
placed in 35, 65 or 95-gallon
garbage carts. Similar to current
regulations, waste must be separated into recyclable materials,
garbage and yard waste. Garbage
and recycling may be placed in
bags or loose in the carts. No bags
are allowed in the yard waste cart.
The carts will be supplied to residents at no cost, and available in
a choice of sizes. All residents will
be given three color coded carts:
blue = recycling; gray = garbage;
green = yard waste. Carts will be
distributed to residents in February
2014, and the new garbage policy
will be implemented on the March
4, 2014 collection day.
All residents will be given three
65-gallon carts unless a different
size is requested. There are sample
carts on display at Village Hall.
Watch for a special mailing regarding the new collection rules and
forms to request a different size
cart or carts.
Carts should be placed for
pickup on Tuesday by 7:00 a.m.,
compliant with the following instructions from the Village of
Kohler Department of Public
Works:
• Your cart should be within 18
inches of the curb with the arrows
on the lid pointing to the
street/curb. Carts cannot be placed
on the street. If there is snow,
please clear an area in the terrace,
or leave the carts at the end of your
driveway.
• To avoid damage to property,
place the cart at least three-feet

away from mailboxes, lampposts
and other fixed objects.
• Place your cart on as level a surface as possible, but away from
low hanging tree branches.
• Place carts at least three feet
away from each other.
• Close lids prior to pick-up. Lids
should be closed on the carts for
driver identification and in order to
stop material from spilling or
blowing away.
• Carts not properly placed will be
tagged and not picked up.
• All recyclables should be placed
in the cart with the blue cover.
Items do not need to be separated.
Recyclable items include: glass
containers, aluminum cans and
foil, tin and steel cans, plastics # 17, newspapers, junk mail, office
paper, fiberboard (cereal and shoe
boxes), magazines, phone books,
books, paper, and cardboard.
• Yard waste should be placed in
the cart with the green cover. This
includes grass clippings, garden
waste, and branches.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why can’t we keep garbage
collection the way it is? Why are
we going to a different system?
A: There are no vendors available
to provide the same collection as
the Village currently has for
garbage, recycling, yard waste and
bulk items. The automated cart
system is safer for the employees.
Also, the Village will be saving
more than $20,000 by switching to
an automated cart system.
Q: What can I do with my old
garbage cans?
A: Place your old cans in the
garbage cart or call Advanced Disposal, 920-458-6030, to have them
picked up.
Q: All my garbage doesn’t fit in
the cart.
A: All items must be in a cart to be
picked up. No loose items will be
picked up.

Q: I have a 35-gallon cart for recyclables and I would like to change
to a 65-gallon cart?
A: To change the size of any carts
you need to contact Advanced Disposal, 920-458-6030. It may take a
few weeks for a different size cart
to be delivered. Advanced Disposal will not deliver a different

waste?
A: If you need any additional carts
they can be purchased for an annual fee through Advanced Disposal, 920-458-6030.
Q: I have a large amount of yard
waste from spring cleanup of my
yard?
A: On designated Tuesdays in
spring the Village of Kohler will
have Special Yard Waste Collection. On these Tuesdays only, any
amount of yard waste may be
placed by the curb in solid containers. No loose yard waste lying on
the ground is allowed. Brush must
be cut into 4’ lengths and placed
neatly by the curb. The Village
does not have a drop off site or
dumpsters for residents to bring
yard waste or brush.
Q: One of the wheels on my cart
broke?
A: If there are any problems with
a cart (broken wheel, damaged
cover, etc.) call Advanced Disposal, 920-458-6030, to make
arrangements to have the cart repaired or replaced.
Q: I’m moving out of the village
can I take the carts with me?

myself. Can I put construction
material out for pickup?
A: If you can make the materials
fit in the garbage cart, it will be

picked up. Otherwise you must
arrange for a dumpster. Prior to
having a dumpster delivered you
must call the Kohler Police Department, 920-459-3877, for permission. The Police Department
will make sure the dumpster is
property placed, with reflectors
facing traffic.
Q: I have an old couch and chair to
dispose of?
A: If the items can be broken down
and fit into a garbage cart, no problem, they will be picked up. If the
items do not fit into a cart, you will
need to call Advanced Disposal,
920-458-6030, for pickup arrangements and cost of disposal.
Q: What do I do with metal materials?
A: Bikes, lawnmowers, bed
frames, basketball hoops, grills,
metal fences, etc. should be placed
in the recycling cart. The gasoline
and oil must be removed from the
lawn mower and disposed of properly, not in your garbage cart.
Items should be disassembled or
broken down to fit into the recycling cart. Any non-recyclable materials should be placed in the
garbage cart. If the items do not fit
in the appropriate carts you can
call Advanced Disposal for pickup arrangements and cost of disposal, 920-458-6030.

Q: I have an old refrigerator and
air-conditioning unit to dispose of.
A: A licensed hauler must pick up
all Freon containing devices. Call

KOHLER, WI – Kohler Credit
Union has named Joey Buchholz
as Regional Branch Manager for
Ozaukee County. In his role,
Buchholz will manage operations,
relationship development and the
retail aspects at the Saukville and
Grafton branches, and the
Mequon branch scheduled to open
in late 2014.
“My focus is to make Kohler
Credit Union the standard in
world-class member service and
to highlight the credit union way
to the residents of Ozaukee
County. Maintaining a strong
presence in the community and
getting financial education into
our schools are my top priorities.
I am very excited to be a part of
the Kohler Credit Union team,
and look forward to doing great
things for our members and this
community for many years,” remarked Buchholz.
Buchholz has been in the financial industry for over 19 years, beginning while a senior in high
school. Most recently he spent 9
years with UW Credit Union in
Milwaukee where he served as the
traveling/support supervisor since
2009, as well as the trainer for all
the managers and lenders in the
Milwaukee market. His dedication to financial literacy led him to
create a workshop that helped
members better understand how to
manage their accounts and get a
better idea on how finances work.
Buchholz holds several Wisconsin
insurance licenses including life,
health, property and casualty.
Committed to community outreach, Buchholz has been a big
supporter of Habitat for Humanity, and has been involved in charitable events for the American
Heart Association, Susan G.
Komen for the Cure, and Autism
Awareness.
An avid baseball fan and historian, Buchholz is a self-published
author, and released his first book
in 2009, “Two Loves: The Story
of a Baseball Polygamist,” which
documents his love of the Milwaukee Brewers and New York
Mets during the 2008 season. He
also writes a pop culture blog
called “newgazzi.” Buchholz
loves spending time with his wife,
Amber, and daughter, Gracie, as
well as devoting time to reading a
good book.

tree, the village will dispose of
them.

Blue Ribbon Award flag raising ceremony
honors Kohler students and teachers

“The National Blue Ribbon flag
raising ceremony captured the
brilliance of the children, the commitment of the schools, and the
caring of the community,” as
stated on the school’s website.
The ceremony began with a parade through the school led by the
school’s drumline, ending in the
gymnasium where current and retired teachers and staff, students,
school supporters, community
members, distinguished guests and
dignitaries gathered to honor
Kohler students and teachers.
School Board President Marlene

Yang asked students to continue to
do great things with their minds.
Deputy State Superintendent of
Public Instruction, Dr. Mike
Thompson, congratulated the students and school community for
being the only public high school
in the state this year to achieve
recognition, and only one of more
than 200 high schools in the nation. Senator Joe Leibham spoke
of the flag as a meaningful symbol
of excellence. Principal Lori Neurohr spoke about how the raising
of the flag would be completed by
a teacher from each level of the
school to represent the building of
strengths between them.
At the moment the flag reached
the top of the staff, hundreds of
blue and white Bomber balloons
rose into the sky to symbolize the
great heights to which our children
will rise. With the National Blue
Ribbon flag flying high at Kohler
Schools, Superintendent Quynh
Trueblood invited all to look to the
flag with pride for what the school
and community has accomplished
together, and to guide everyone to
new heights.

“We got off to a slow start and

The Random Lake Rams gave
us some sheep thrills in the fourth
quarter to outscore the Kohler

as both teams were able to convert.
The score remained nearly even
until the battering Rams managed
to get out in front with about four

minutes left to go in the game. The
combination
of
turnovers,
mediocre defense and Ram free
throw conversions proved to be
too much for our Bombers to overcome.
Noah Fink sparked Kohler with
four 3-pointers in the third quarter,
while Brett Mueller led the
Bombers with 25 points.
“Once the first couple of shots
went in, I started to get my

Noah Fink. “When the shots fell,
the crowd got energized. When the

Sponsored by Ryan Groh of Guided Path Counseling

Guided Path Counseling offers a helping hand
By Jeff Pederson
Sheboygan
Falls News Editor
___________________________
In today’s increasingly complicated society, everyday life can be
filled with roadblocks, obstacles
and detours that have the potential
to send a person off their intended
track and potentially down a road
to destruction.
When problems mount and the
bumps in the road pile up, Licensed Professional Therapist
Ryan Groh of Guided Path Counseling in Sheboygan Falls is available to help steer a person’s life
back in the right direction.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Concordia University and a master’s
degree in counseling from Lakeland College, the Kiel native
opened Guided Path Counseling at
641 Monroe St., Suite 111 in
downtown Sheboygan Falls within
in the Brickner Woolen Mills Historic Building in February.
“I initially went to Concordia to
study physical therapy, due to
sports injuries in high school, but I
didn’t really connect with the professors, and I thought about dropping out of college,” Groh said. “I
was encouraged to continue, by my
mother who asked me to reflect
upon the high school class I enjoyed the most in high school,
which was human behavior with
Mr. Kuehl,” Groh said. “I decided
to shift my focus onto that path and
four years later, I graduated with a
degree in psychology.
“My wife was very supportive
of me,” Groh said. “She took on a
part-time job in addition to her
full-time job, so I could quit my
full-time job and find a part-time
job in conjunction with earning my
practicum/licensure hours required
for the master’s degree.”
For the past five years, Groh interned at Associated Psychological
Health Service in Sheboygan, obtaining his 360 practicum necessary for completion of his master’s
degree and the 3,000 hours needed
for state licensure.
“While pursuing my master’s
degree in counseling at Lakeland,
I was able to spend time working
with clients at Associated Psychological Health in Sheboygan,
which was a great experience,” he
said. “I got my feet wet there and
formed some good relationships
with clients whom I still work with
today.”
Upon completing his academic
and licensure requirements, Groh

set out to establish his own counseling business.
“When I finished up my master’s degree and my required hours
at Associated Psychological
Health, I knew that I wanted to
have my own business so that I
could put my own personality and
identity to what I represent and believe in as a mental health professional,” Groh said. “I decided to go
out on my own in last December
and by February I opened up shop
in Falls.”
Groh says he culled the name
Guided Path Counseling from one
of his favorite movies.
“I always loved the movie,
‘What Dreams May Come.’” he
said. “The movie inspired me as
the name for my business. It’s a
movie in which a man, played by
Robin Williams, loses his family
and his own life through tragedy,
which includes his wife taking her
own life.
“His love for her is so strong
and believes she is his soul mate,”
he said. “ He is willing to risk his
own eternity to see her again. The
movie illustrates a very vivid depiction of hell, and how fearful,
vulnerable, exposed, and dark of a
journey it is to get through it,
which is very symbolic of therapy.
Cuba Gooding Jr. and Morgan
Freeman are his guides to help him
through hell. My paralleling vision
is to help guide clients through
their hell here on earth.”
After contacting Sheboygan
Falls Chamber-Main Street Executive Director Shirl Breunig, Groh
found suitable office space rather
quickly.
“I got in touch with Shirl at the
Sheboygan Falls Chamber and she
was very helpful and resourceful in
getting me in contact with Jim
Fasse, who she said had professional suites available for rent,” he
said. “I called him and took a tour
of the office that same day. I loved
the scenic view of the river from
my office window, and the great
vibe and support I received from
Mr. Fasse.”
Groh has spent the past nine
months settling into his new surroundings and building his counseling service from the ground up.
“This has really been a blessing
from God,” Groh said. “Sheboygan Falls is a very warm and
friendly community and I couldn’t
be happier to be located here.
“Dr. Toby Watson of Associated
Psychological Health allowed me
to bring my clients from Sheboygan to my new practice in Sheboy-

gan Falls, which was a blessing as
well and definitely made starting
out on my own, a more seamless
transition.”
Groh offers a full range of
counseling and therapy services
for adults, children, couples and
families, including those suffering
from symptoms, diagnoses and
feelings such as abandonment,
anger, anxiety, cutting, bipolar, depression, divorce, eating disorders,
emptiness, grief, inability to fall
and/or stay asleep, panic attacks,
rapid thoughts, rejection, physical
abuse, Post Traumatic Stress, sexual abuse, situational/social anxiety, suicidal ideation and
withdrawal.
Groh assists clients through
standard individual counseling sessions, as well as family therapy,
marital counseling, couples counseling and anger management sessions.
“As a therapist my job is to help
my clients understand their
wounds, to help them become truly
aware of them, help them to understand how they are compensating
for their wounds and to help them
heal, which will help them as a
guide once treatment goals/therapy
has commenced,” Groh said. “We
live in a society where anger is an
accepted emotion, but sadness is
not.
“Since we are not robots we all
have emotions,” he said. “When
we suppress them, it causes problems that only will continue to increase symptomology through
headaches, uncontrollable crying,
sleep problems, lack of motivation. The mind is only capable of
doing so much. If it is overloaded
like a wood chipper for example, it
will start to shut down and symptoms will develop, such as sleeping
problems all the way to thoughts of
suicide.”
Groh also engages in children’s
and behavior modification therapy
to assist with issues such as atten-

tion deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by implementing the
Caregiver’s Skill Program, developed by Dr. David Stein, in conjunction with the Nurtured Heart
Approach developed by Dr.
Howard Glasser.
“I implement the Caregiver’s
Skill Program and the Nurtured
Heart Approach working with parents and their children, which reduces/diminishes unwanted target
behaviors, such as temper
tantrums, dawdling and insubordination, as well as increasing the
emotional connection between
child and parent.”
Groh says a variety of factors
can lead individuals down a dark
path in life, including toxic friends,
peer pressure, bullying, an abusive
relationship, an unstable upbringing/abandonment/neglect, history
of sexual abuse, drugs/alcohol,
sublimation (staying task oriented
to avoid unwanted thoughts/feelings), verbal/physical abuse, as
well as a person’s own negative,
destructive, thoughts.
“It is very normal to repress
feelings, emotions, poor decisions
and bad behavior,” Groh said.
“People have a tendency to want to
push problems to the side and
sweep them underneath the rug.
The path of least resistance may
seem to be the easiest way to go,
but it never is the best way to deal
with problems. It becomes like a
compost pile that has an odor that
never goes away, and one can’t describe the smell/odor.”
Groh says he works closely
with each of his clients to develop
an individualized, goal-driven
treatment plan.
“When a new client comes in, I
do an initial consultation where I
talk with them to get to know them
as a person and then to develop
and understanding of the problems
they are dealing with,” he said.
“Three to four weeks from the initial consult, a treatment plan is created.
“The treatment plan is a set of
objectives and goals that can be
met through actions and behavior
interventions over a certain period
of time. The therapist is the guide
of the treatment. However, success
in treatment is created by the
client, not the therapist. A great
majority of the objectives in treatment are seen in the big and small
steps the client takes outside of
treatment.”
Groh says therapy sessions typically run 50 minutes once a week

Safe Harbor of Sheboygan beneficiary of
“SPA”liday event at Kohler Waters Spa
Kohler Waters Spa held its second annual "Spa"liday event on
Monday, where more than 180 attendees experienced complimentary mini treatments and learned
the latest tips, tricks and techniques for skincare, makeup, hair
care and nail care.
Guests enjoyed refreshments
and hors d’ oeuvres as they strolled
through the spa to meet reps from
Kerstin Florian Skincare, La Bella
Donna Mineral Makeup, Moroccan Oil, NuFace, Deborah Lippman Nail Care and Farmhouse
Fresh.
A portion of the proceeds from
the $20 admission fee was donated
to Safe Harbor of Sheboygan.

for most clients.
“Therapy is a process and
should not have a time limit placed
on it,” Groh said. “A lot of times,
the wounds people are coping with
have been internalized over a long
period of time, therefore it will
take time for their wounds to heal.”
Groh stresses that seeking
counseling is a sign of strength.
“It is a societal myth that therapy is for the weak,” Groh said. “It
takes much more strength to say
you have a problem than to turn
your head and look the other way
in an attempt to ignore it. “
Groh says another obstacle for
potential clients is their readiness
for therapy.
“If you are a parent or if not
simply to ask your own parents if
they were “ready” to have a child,”
Groh said. “If they answer honestly, the answer is ‘no.’
“No matter how much money
you have, how supportive your
family is, how much you have
nested before the birth of a child,
one is never ready for something
they never have had or took part
in,” he said. ‘The same can be said
for therapy. Therapy is a process
in which you may share things that
you never would have imagined
sharing with your best friend.
Which makes it understandable
why the thought of therapy initially
creates anxiety. Further, change is
scary for people. It’s more comfortable to live in one’s filth and
ugliness because the ‘old self’ is
huge, and a comfortable place in
relation to our ‘new self’ being
rather small initially, and scary. It
is the ‘old self’ who attempts to
convince us not to do therapy.
However, it is the ‘new self’ who
makes that gigantic first step to
call.”
