Kohler grad Tyler Lewis steps into the
limelight with half-court shot
By Mary Struck, Publisher/editor
Tyler Lewis, a 2013 Kohler
graduate and second-year student
at the University of Virginia, sank
a half-court shot to win $18,000
from State Farm during ESPN’s
College GameDay pregame show
hosted by the university on January 31.
Tyler had 18 seconds to win, but
only needed 11, making the shot
on his fourth try which sent the capacity crowd of fellow students
and the ESPN crew into a frenzy.
Tyler, who was only the fifth person to make the shot during the
show’s history, bolted around the
gym and jumped on the scorer’s
table. Visit kohlervillager.com or
facebook.com/kohlervillager to
see videos.
Tyler was chosen from among
12,000 students for the contest as
a member of the “Hoo Crew” committee, which is UVa’s student section spirit group. It was left up to
the Hoo Crew to pick the contestant, and they chose Tyler because
he had played well for them in intramural basketball. 
Tyler’s parents, Jim and Linda
Lewis, were on a plane in Orange
County, California preparing for
takeoff when Tyler was scheduled
to shoot. Linda said they were able
to see the shot on their iPad using
an ESPN app literally seconds before they were required to turn off
electronic devices.
The Lewis’s then had a layover
at Dallas Fort Worth airport and as
they were approaching the gate,

saw Tyler on a big screen television. Linda said it was all surreal.
Jim’s advice to Tyler that morning before the contest was to be
gracious no matter what happened.
Within minutes of sinking the
shot, the Internet and social media
lit up with videos of Tyler’s moment. It even made ESPN Sports
Center’s Top Ten Plays of the Day.
One of the ESPN analysts asked
Tyler what his plans were for the
prize money, and Tyler responded
“Tuition, I guess . . .”

lowed the show, and the announcers mentioned that Tyler was from
Kohler, Wisconsin as the cameras
switched to Badgers player Sam
Dekker (from Sheboygan) warming up. The announcers didn’t
know that Tyler and Sam had actually played against each other in
local basketball tournaments and
in high school games.
I had a chance to send Tyler a
few questions about his experience
and here are his responses:
On a scale of 1-10, how nervous
were you?
I was definitely nervous, but at
the end of the day, I was shooting
a basketball in front of all my
classmates. So it wasn’t a job interview or a final exam or anything
like that. I was doing something
that I loved, and it just happened to
be on national television. That
morning, while I was waiting in
the stands to take the shot, I’d say
my nervousness level was around
a 9. But when I walked out onto
the court, my nerves were overcome by excitement. While I was
taking the shot, my nervousness
was probably around level 5 or 6.
How did you celebrate?
Before taking the shot, I watched
some videos of the other students
who had made the shot in the past.

I found out that they really didn’t
celebrate the way I would have expected from college students who
just won $18K. So I knew if I
made the shot, I would go crazy
and try to embrace the moment
with the fans. After the shot went
in, I was overflowing with emotion. The crowd was so loud that I
didn’t even realize that Jay
Williams came in to give me a bro
hug. I just felt like taking a lap
around the court. I saw the scorer’s
table was empty and figured it
would be cool to get as close to my
classmates as possible.
Were you able to get any sleep
that night after all the excitement?
I got very little sleep that night.
My phone was ringing off the
hook, and social media was exploding. That night, I went downtown and one of my buddies
thought it would be fun to introduce me to every person who
walked by. He actually didn’t have
to do much introducing, as suddenly lots of people recognized
me. So my night consisted of taking pictures with lots of random
girls.
What were the strangest things
to happen to you after all the
publicity?

The strangest thing was that
somebody made a fake Twitter account pretending to be me. I didn’t
have a Twitter account, but when I
realized someone was impersonating me, I quickly created one. I just
found it odd that someone would
actually do that.
To what do you credit your halfcourt shooting prowess? Have
you been able to do some court
time at UVa?
I remember back at Kohler High
School, when I would jokingly
shoot half-court shots after lunch
with Kyle Struck and some others.
Well, I guess that “practice” really
paid off. I actually found out that I
would be taking the shot the night
before, so I was able to go to the
gym and practice about 30 halfcourt shots. I only made like 2 or 3
of them, so I definitely was not expecting to make the shot on game
day. I also think that playing basketball in high school helped me
not get too intimidated by a crowd.

Great Marriages Service Club, raises
more than $152,000
The Sheboygan Service Club,
along with their partner charity
Great Marriages, raised over
$152,000 in one evening to benefit
not only Great Marriages, but also
27 other charities in our County.
In addition, the contributions donated provide college scholarships
to high school graduates who have
demonstrated a commitment to
their education and community
service work.
Dana Bemis, President of the
Sheboygan Service Club said,
“This is the highest level of support we have ever raised in one
night at our Gala event. Because of
the efforts of all the women in our
organization, our honored guests,
and the efforts of Great Marriages,
we were able to give to other organizations that were selected at
record levels as well.”
The Sheboygan Service Club is
a not-for-profit group whose members each volunteer for a six-year
term to give back to the commu-

nity. The group has affected multiple organizations in our County
throughout its 83-year history
through service to improve the
lives of citizens in Sheboygan
County. Since its inception, the
SSC has involved more than 600
women and raised over $1 Million
dollars with over 2,500 hours a
year in service and fundraising activities.
Great Marriages was selected
for its proven work with the community to support marriages and
help reduce the divorce rate. Deb
Wolniak, Executive Director, said
“Although the divorce rate occurs
in 53% of marriages in our County,
couples who come to Great Marriages and complete the Prepare
and Enrich Mentoring Program report not only that they are staying
together, but they are finding renewed hope and growth in their relationship. We hear it over and
over again. So many couples
headed to divorce court, or just

looking for enrichment (even after
45 plus years of marriage) are now
seeing renewed hope, passion and
growth in their marital relationship.
The grant awarded to Great
Marriages will go directly toward
programming. The updated schedule for 2015 includes new ways to
date your spouse (Date Nights),
social programming, classes and
retreats. Wolniak continues, “Our
hope is that people from all ages
and stages join us to grow their relationships, including singles, dating, engaged, and married. We
even have a conference for those
who have blended families due to
remarriage or marrying again after
the loss of a spouse.” The schedule can be viewed on the website
at
www.great-marriages.org,
Events tab.
Dana Bemis invites others who
want to apply for the 2015 grant to
submit their proposals by March
31, 2015 to qualify for considera-

tion. “It is wonderful to be able to
serve with women from around
our County who care so deeply for

those in need, support causes that
create positive social change, and
encourage generosity.”

Sheboygan County seeking thoughts
and suggestions regarding
recreational amenities
Sheboygan County, with the
help of its Recreational Facilities
Management Advisory Committee, is interested in gathering the
thoughts and suggestions of the
public relating to the parks, trails,
and outdoor recreation areas
throughout the County. The
County is asking for the help of its
residents to provide their perspective by taking a short survey.
Survey takers are asked questions such as how satisfied they are
with the recreation opportunities in
their own communities and Sheboygan County, as well as what
they think can be improved. These

opportunities can include the park
next door, the lake used for fishing,
the supply of preservation areas for
bird watching, or the multi-use
trails for bicycling, among others.
The results will be incorporated
into the 2015 Sheboygan County
Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation and Open Space Plan. The
Plan is an important tool for the
County since it is a requirement for
certain grant funding, which can
be used to help pay for new recreational opportunities or maintain
existing opportunities. Based on
the public’s viewpoints gathered
from the survey results, goals and

specific projects will be incorporated into the 2015 Plan.
The survey is available online at
www.sheboygancounty.com on the
Planning & Conservation Department page. They are also available
in hard copy form, which can be
mailed upon request.
The survey should take approximately five to ten minutes to complete. For any questions, contact
the Sheboygan County Planning &
Conservation Department at 920459-3060
or
plancon@sheboygancounty.com.

Kohler resident celebrated fifth year
of launching state’s only free,
children’s book festival
By Stephanie Dlugopolski
For much of her adult life,
Kohler resident Jo Ann Dent has
been immersed in books – physically and professionally. But when
she started putting her own
thoughts together five years ago
about creating a local children’s
book festival, she didn’t realize
she was crafting her own next
chapter. This article takes a look at
the early development of the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival
and the inspiration behind Wisconsin’s only free children’s book festival, which celebrated its fifth
anniversary this past October.
The idea. And plenty of
questions
Jo Ann recalled how inspired
her young students became after
they interacted with a professional
author or illustrator. “It was a great
thing to witness, seeing the power
these book creators had in inspiring the students to read, imagine,
write, or draw,” she recalled.
But those author visits were taking place in Milwaukee, at a private school where she served as
assistant librarian. When she later
became the coordinator at the Literary Council in Sheboygan
County, Jo Ann gained a new appreciation for the links between
family literacy and reading development in young children. “In that
role I really identified how critical
the connection is for children to
develop a life-long love of reading. And I realized that nothing
like a large-scale community book
festival existed here, which I felt
was a large gap.”
Then she asked herself, what
was the likelihood someone else
might organize a children’s book
festival in Sheboygan? “We don’t
have an independent book store,
which is usually the organization
that brings authors into town. Sheboygan really didn’t have many
opportunities to bring youth and
families together in celebration of
books and reading.”
Her husband, Tom, could see
how passionate Jo Ann was about
the idea of a children’s book festival, and shared his wife’s curiosity: Would this make sense outside
their home?
Gaining Steam & Support
Inspired by the Wisconsin Book
Festival in Madison, Jo Ann met
with their leadership to understand
what might be involved in organizing a children’s book festival in
her community. She was advised
to talk to other Sheboygan County
organizations that shared her mission of encouraging young readers. Jo Ann met with the Eastern
Shores Library System, the Sheboygan Area School District,

Children’s Book Festival CoChairs Karin Menzer, Tom Dent (festival steering
committee) and Jo Ann Dent (festival founder and co-chair).

Mead Public Library, Bookworm
Gardens and the John Michael
Kohler Arts Center. She wrote a
concept paper and shared it with
her potential collaborators. She
was told by each of these organizations, that her idea to create a
free children’s book festival was a
fit with their respective missions,
and how could they help?
So in 2009, planning for the first
Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival began, with great support from
many areas: a major grant from the
Wisconsin Humanities Council,
monetary and staff marketing support from the JMKAC, funding
from the Mead Public Library
Foundation and a half dozen local
family and corporate foundations.
Numerous individuals and local
professionals also volunteered
their time. Karin Menzer, youth
services manager at Mead Public
Library, agreed to serve as co-chair
with Jo Ann. And her husband,
Tom, shares his marketing and
digital expertise, and ongoing encouragement.
“This is what we feel makes the
Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival so successful,” says Jo Ann.
“It’s a true collaboration among all
who share a mission. This festival
doesn’t live with any single organization, and we’re all committed to
efficiency in sharing our areas of
expertise.”
A Recipe for Success
Some of the best and brightest
authors and illustrators have presented at the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival. The festival
brings 12-15 award-winning authors and illustrators to the festival
each year.
Five Caldecott Award-winning
illustrators presented at the 2013
festival, while Newbery Award
and National Book Award winning
authors have also appeared. The
significant increases in attendance
each year tell the festival’s planning members that they’re on the
right track. The festival attracted

3,200 attendees in its first year
(2010) and that number jumped to
7,100 in 2013. In addition to more
than 50 public festival events over
three days many of the authors
also visit local schools. In 2013,
eight of the festival’s authors and
illustrators visited 16 schools
throughout the county, reaching
nearly 4,000 students. For the
2014 festival, a group of homeschooled students will have this
opportunity as well, with the historical Wade House hosting the
visiting author and students.
Funding from the SCBF’s sponsors and donors makes it possible
for the festival to fund most of the
costs for these school visits. Sheboygan County schools pay about
$450 for an author/illustrator visit,
which is far less cost than if the
school organized an author/illustrator visit independently. And, because the festival organizes all
aspects of the visit, schools can
participate without a big investment of their staff time. For the
families taking part in any of the
3-day activities, no fees are
charged. “Our goal is to always
keep this festival accessible to
anyone and free of charge,” said Jo
Ann.
More than two dozen activities –
from art and writing workshops,
storytelling, bedtime concerts, and
author/illustrator collectible trading cards – fill the weekend
agenda. The festival’s activities
take place at three beautiful venues: the botanical garden built
around children’s literature called
Bookworm Gardens, Mead Public
Library in the city’s downtown,
and at the John Michael Kohler
Arts Center, also downtown.
“The SCBF has many great
things going for it,” said Matthew
Cordell, a children’s author and illustrator. He and Julie Halpern –
his wife, who’s also an author –
presented in 2012 and since then,
have returned as participants with
their children. “Sheboygan is

small and quaint but also has so
much happening culturally. The
participating venues are of exceptional quality and every year, the
guest authors and illustrators are
top notch. And the planning and
organization are so well tailored.
It’s incredibly heart-warming to
see the community and surrounding communities rally around this
festival and children's books.”
Tom couldn’t agree more with
Matthew’s comments. He’s not
only proud of the collaborative
spirit that’s made the festival what
it is today, he’s quite proud of Jo
Ann. “It’s been so fun to see her
grow,” says Tom. “She had an idea
and sold it, which was really outside her comfort zone. Now, she’s
a project manager, strategic
thinker, grant writer, event planner,
and making wonderful community
connections. She’s acquired all
these new skills and I’m proud of
her.”
The Next Chapters
As the festival’s momentum
continues to build, Jo Ann, Karin,
and Tom have extended their vision. How do they sustain a volunteer-driven, free book festival for
children in Sheboygan County,
and perhaps broaden the reach?
They called together a strategic
planning committee, established a
mission and vision, and are applying for IRS 501 (c) (3) non-profit
status, which will also allow the
festival to apply for and accept
new funding sources.
It’s important to Jo Ann, Karin
and Tom, and everyone involved
with the festival, that Sheboygan
is seen as a community that supports children and reading. “It’s
gratifying to see so many others
get behind this and see youth get
excited about reading and imagining. I feel very fortunate this festival has had the support it has. It’s
very rewarding to be involved in
something that has this type of impact.”
Author Amy Timberlake echoed
Jo Ann’s enthusiasm. “Festivals
are great reasons to come into an
area and be reminded that there's
fun stuff to do in your own community. Not only does this festival
put authors and illustrators in front
of kids in their schools, it gets kids
excited about – and involved in –
the weekend activities.”
Planning is underway for the 6th
annual SCBF. The theme will be
“A World of Wonders,” highlighting invention, imagination, and
the scientific spirit in books for
children and teens. Mark your calendars now for October 9-11, 2015
and visit sheboyganchildrensbookfestival.org for more information.

KOHLERVILLAGER.COM

For the 30th Year, American Club is
Given AAA Five-Diamond Award

The Midwest’s only recipient of Association’s top honor for three
straight decades
The American Club has once
again been awarded the American
Automobile Association’s highest
honor, its famous Five-Diamond
rating, a distinction described as
signifying “the ultimate in luxury
and sophistication.” This is the
30th consecutive year The American Club has received AAA’s premier prize, and it remains the only
resort-hotel in the Midwest to receive the accolade.
The American Club is one of
two resorts in the Kohler Co.
Global Hospitality Group, and it
provides guests with a wellrounded selection of worldrenowned championship golf
courses, outstanding spa experiences and myriad superb dining
options. The Immigrant Restaurant, located within The American
Club and known for its intimate
setting and creative use of locally
grown ingredients, was granted the
Association’s prestigious Four Diamond Award.
“We aspire to provide every
guest with an outstanding, memorable experience,” said Michael
Belot, General Manager of Destination Kohler. “To do that day in
and day out since 1985 is a real accomplishment, and we are very
proud to have maintained such a

consistently high level of service
for so long.”
The American Club was initially
built in 1918 as a dorm for immigrants who had come to work at
the Kohler factory across the
street. On an imaginative leap of
faith, the Kohler Company set out
to transform the red-brick Tutor
property into a luxurious resort
hotel in 1981, and today it is recognized as one of the most premier
resort destinations in the country.
Offering elegant rooms outfitted
with the finest KOHLER plumbing
products, along with tile and furnishings from the Kohler-owned
companies of Ann Sacks, McGuire
and Baker, The American Club
maintains what AAA recognized as
“impeccable standards of excellence.”
In addition to myriad dining options and sophisticated conference
facility, the resort also boasts the
luxurious Kohler Waters Spa. This
soothing sanctuary offers an extensive menu of unique treatments
that make use of the company’s
state-of-the-art plumbing technologies, as well as a relaxation pool
and glass-enclosed rooftop deck.
In addition, The American Club is
renowned for its award-winning
championship
golf
courses,

Whistling Straits and Blackwolf
Run, which have hosted two PGA
Championships, the U.S. Senior
Open, two U.S. Women’s Opens
and is home to the upcoming 2015
PGA Championship and 2020
Ryder Cup.
The Immigrant Restaurant was
also highly regarded by AAA and
secured a Four-Diamond rating, a
distinction awarded to only 2.5
percent of the nearly 30,000 AAAapproved restaurants. The American Club’s flagship restaurant, The
Immigrant Restaurant, is renowned
for its modern cuisine and the
unique intimacy provided by its six
small dining rooms, each one decorated in the distinctive style of the
first Europeans to settle Wisconsin:
French, Dutch, German, Normandy, Danish and English.
The AAA Diamond ratings
started in 1937 as a way to provide
accurate travel information to
members; today it rates more properties than any other ratings entity.
Each year, AAA sends professionally trained inspectors out to conduct unscheduled evaluations and
anonymously assess over 59,000
properties. Those properties
awarded Five-Diamonds represent
less than half of one percent of all
hotels visited by these inspectors;

an elite club with fewer than 200
members throughout the United
States, Canada, Mexico and the
Caribbean. The American Club is
one of only 2 establishments that
has maintained its Five-Diamond
rating for 30 years or more.
