Out with the old

Make room for a
book drive

Classes have a chance to

win a pizza party
Kohler fifth grader McKenna
Holzrichter is seeking donated
books for a book drive she plans
to hold at Kohler Schools from
Thursday, December 10 through
Friday, January 8.
McKenna was cleaning out the
family playroom of old books and
toys after requesting new books
for Christmas, when she asked if
the used books could be donated
to kids who dont have a lot.
McKennas mother, Molly, used
to volunteer in the Books for Kids
division of the Next Door Foundation, so she recommended donating the books to that
organization. After a few minutes
McKenna said, I bet there are a
lot of kids who have books that
they have outgrown. What if we
collect them all and donate
them? Molly told her that was
called a book drive and said if she
wanted to do one, she would help
her. So, the Out with the old,
make room for the new book
drive was born!
Will-Pemco in Sheboygan donated all of the boxes and printing, and Rita Gast from
Shorewest Realtors (McKennas
Nana) is sponsoring a pizza
party for the class that collects the
most books. A box will also be located in the library for any com-

munity members who would like

to donate.
Books needed include baby
board books, childrens picture
books, childrens fiction and nonfiction, juvenile literature, childrens
cookbooks, childrens books with
universal themes (friendship, animals, science, etc.), parenting
books, and multicultural childrens books.
Books that cannot be accepted
are: textbooks of any kind; withdrawn or discarded library books;
old books with mildew, torn
pages, handwriting, or highlighting; magazines; encyclopedias or
other reference books, adult
The winner of the pizza party
will be calculated by dividing the
total number of qualifying books
a room donates by the number of
students in the room
The Holzrichters would like to
thank Will-Pemco for donating
the boxes and fliers and Rita Gast
at Shorewest Realtors for donating the pizza party!

Finance Committee takes up

rental property complaints

Renee Suscha

Brian Homiston

Village Attorney Mike

Bauer notified the committee of a bill being fasttracked
Republicans and interest
groups that would prohibit a
municipality from requiring
landlords to register with the
city, and from establishing
apartment inspection programs.
Inspections could only be conducted in response to tenant complaints. Assembly Bill 568 also
restricts municipalities from inacting or enforcing ordinances that
prohibit homeowners from renting
out their homes. The bill would,
however, allow a landlord to evict
a tenant for committing certain
criminal activities on the premises,

Meg Trager

Fred Stone

regardless of whether an arrest

or conviction has been made.
Kohler Police Chief William
Rutten said he would meet with
Attorney Bauer to rough out
language for a potential ordinance that the committee could
work off of, that would give the
police department more tools to
help them address problem properties.
Rutten also urged residents to
call the police at the time that they
see suspicious activities taking
place, rather than waiting to discuss it with them casually when
its too late for police to respond
as a complaint.

At their December 7 meeting,

the Village Boards Finance Committee discussed nuisance complaints from Village residents
regarding rental properties. One
rental home in particular was alleged to have drug activities taking place, with visitors coming
and going in some cases squealing their tires and speeding. Some
residents called for a nuisance
abatement ordinance to be enacted, as well as creation of a database of all rental properties located
in the Village that would be updated annually, and require landlords to subject their rental
property to interior and exterior
inspections every two years, or as

John Michael Kohler Arts Center presents offer to

purchase City of Sheboygan land for Art Preserve

The John Michael Kohler

Arts Center has presented an
offer to purchase a section of
the Schuchardt Farm Property
on Indiana Avenue from the
City of Sheboygan for the development of the worlds first
facility dedicated to the study
of art environments and their
preservation, conservation
and presentation. The project,
known as the Art Preserve,
will complement the Arts
Centers New York Avenue
location in downtown Sheboygan, WI.
Approximately 39 acres are
included in the $1,170,000
deal. The Arts Center has
agreed to make a payment in
lieu of taxes as well. Groundbreaking on the multimilliondollar project is expected in
the summer of 2017 with
completion targeted for the
summer of 2020.
The Schuchardt Farm
Property is a perfect setting
for the Art Preserve, said
Sandra Sachse, president of
the John Michael Kohler Arts
Center Board of Directors. It
offers easy access from major
thoroughfares and
connectivity with the Arts
Centers downtown Sheboy-

gan location and existing cultural assets. The semirural

quality is similar to the original locations of most of the art
environments in our collection.
The John Michael Kohler
Arts Center is known worldwide for its collection and
presentation of art environments. This unique field of
art-making involves an individual significantly transforming
surroundingsfor example,
his/her home or yardinto an
work of art.
John Michael Kohler Arts
Center Director Ruth DeYoung Kohler and Kohler
Foundation, Inc. have long
been known as the worlds
major preservationists of
complete artist environments
as well as for bringing together smaller components of
this art form.
The Arts Centers unparalleled collection of works by
art-environment builders is
experiencing ever- increasing
requests for access from
scholars, curators, and the
public, said Karen Patterson,
John Michael Kohler Arts

Center associate curator. We

already have two environments that cannot be shown
until we have permanent outdoor space for them, and we
dont want to decline future
opportunities to grow because
of the lack of space.
The Art Preserve will utilize
the propertys unique natural
qualities for the installation of
art environments in harmony
with land conservancy initiatives related to the area. The
new facility will serve as the
major indoor/outdoor museum of whole environments
as well as of smaller components of this magnificent art
Development of this property into a world renowned,

tourism and economic development asset for the city and

it come to fruition, stated

ter collection that has been

preserved in situ, is open for
viewing year-round at its original location at 5634 Evergreen Drive in the Town of
Wilson, south of Sheboygan.
The Arts Center has always believed that the art environments we preserve
should remain in situ like the
Tellen sculpture garden, but
that is not always possible,
said Ed McKelvey, chair of
the Art Centers Art Preserve
Committee. Our solution is

the Art Preserve, which will

serve as a haven for art environments that no longer have
a home.
Admission to the John
