Kettle Park West

Phase 2
gets smaller
City concerns, access issues
prompt limitations
BILL LIVICK
Unified Newspaper Group

Kettle Park Wests second phase will be a


bit smaller than previously planned.
During a committee meeting last Thursday, city alders learned Forward Development Group had removed part of that project, an area north of Hwy. 138.
Alders also discussed other changes the
developer is proposing for Phase 2 of the
development, including highway access
points, issues around a proposed 16-acre
park and the timing for approvals and starting construction.
The group the full council, meeting as
a committee of the whole also met in a
closed session to talk about the developers
request for more tax-increment financing
assistance, which officials expect to be in
the range of $6 million to $7 million.
Even with the reduction, the residentialheavy Phase 2 is likely to be much larger
than the controversial Wal-Mart Supercenter
commercial project. The original plan comprised 82 acres for a total of 460 residential
units, plus a hotel and a park.

The situation could be an illness that

that person may be missing days of work,

their job, getting evicted and eventually

Stoughton Courier Hub
launched a new website this week.
While its still at
ConnectStoughton.com, the new
site should offer an improved
web experience for the our online

The change comes as all of Unified Newspaper Groups papers
aim to foster a web-first mentality, to bring news to our readers
faster. The new site will help us
improve our digital-first practices,
and includes options to feature or
highlight certain topics, like the
recent Stoughton High School

KPW: Developer has sense of urgency to get approvals


Continued from page 1
Ald. Scott Truehl (Dist.
4), a member of the Planning Commission, urged his
colleagues to get prepared
and educated about the
project.
He said the developer
has agreed to much of what
city officials have requested, including reducing the
number of residential units
to provide more parkland,
and also removing the area
near Hwy. 138 because of
highway access concerns.
By statute, the city has
to make a decision on the
preliminary plat the planning document that lays out
the basic development plan
by early June unless the
developer agrees to grant it
more time.
This is a huge project,
and it is important to the
community, Truehl said.
The council needs to do
its homework and know
whats in the plan.

Reducing the size


FDG manager Dennis
Steinkraus told the committee he had pulled the
area south of Oak Opening
Drive and north of Hwy.
138 from the preliminary
plat hes submitted for the
citys approval.
Steinkraus said the decision was in response to
concerns hed heard during a March 14 Planning
Commission meeting. Several commissioners were
concerned that the developer would not receive the
Wisconsin Department of
Transportations approval
to create a street access
to KPWs second phase
area from Hwy 138. They
felt without that access
point they couldnt support
developing the area for residential homes.
Steinkraus didnt say
how many acres had been
removed from the original
82-acre preliminary plat.
Phone calls to Steinkraus
and city planner Rodney
Scheel this week about the
number of acres removed
were not returned.
But Truehl noted there
are about 34 fewer homes
near the now expanded
park.

Highway issues
So far, there is only one
certain entry to the second phase area which
is north and west of the
32-acre commercial center at the corner of Hwys.
51/138. But the Jackson
Street entrance to Phase 2 is
not enough to satisfy most
alders.
The developer has proposed creating a secondary access north of Phase
2 at Roby Road, Deer
Point Road and Hwy. 51
and is discussing the plan
with Town of Rutland officials and the DOT. That

intersection would have to


be signalized and turn lanes
would need to be built, said
the developers engineer,
Bill Dunlap of JSD Professional Services.
The same is true with the
Jackson Street intersection,
he said.
Dunlap, who has conducted a traffic impact analysis for the development,
said the Jackson Street
access would perform at
an acceptable level until
2035 if its improved now,
according to his analysis
based on computer modeling.
For traffic purposes, this
one intersection is all thats
required, he said. Jackson
Street will serve the needs
for traffic, but not necessarily for public safety and
future residents needs.
He said the plan is to
extend Oak Opening Drive
north of KPW to Deer Point
Road in Rutland, and then
improve Deer Point where
it would intersect Hwy. 51
and Roby Road.
Dunlap said creating
a second access point on
Hwy. 138 is more challenging. The DOT has approved
a roundabout on Hwy. 138
near the Hwys. 51/138
intersection to serve the
commercial center.
But it would require
the removal of an existing access to the highway
before allowing one to be
created for Phase 2.
The developer and city
alders say the access point
would ideally be created
by extending Oak Opening Road (which essentially
dissects Phase 2 from north
to south) to the highway.
The DOT said we have

Park plans
Parks and Recreation
director Tom Lynch
explained the citys ongoing discussions with the
developer related to creating a park in the Phase 2
area.
He noted FDG has
increased its allocation of
land from about 10 to 16
acres.
The city roughly
$323,000 from so-called
impact fees for developing
parks and trails in the project.
Lynch said the city has
not developed a new park
since 2000, and the developers proposal meets the
needs that are in our (Parks
and Open Space) plan.
This gives us a large sports
field.
Lynch added the city has
about five parks that are
similar to what the developer has proposed for
Phase 2. But he said the
map included in the Phase 2
plan is only a guide and that

A sense of urgency
By state law, the city is
required to make a decision on the preliminary plat
by June 3 90 days after it
was submitted to the city.
The plat establishes the
framework for the development and a final plat, which
must conform to the preliminary plat and also meet
any conditions required by
the city.
OCallaghan told the
group the developer would
not force a vote if youre
not ready, regardless of
the June deadline.
But, he added, we have
a sense of urgency because
we stand to lose potential
tenants and builders if this
process drags out too long.
OCallaghan said developers and builders have
expressed interest in a hotel,
a senior housing complex
and residential housing.
There are developers
who want to come and build
here, he said. Theres
demand now.
FDG would like a decision on the preliminary plat
next month, he said.
If that were to happen,
we still have to negotiate
with the city on plans and
TIF, he said.

to prove that putting an


intersection on 138 would
improve the traffic flow,
Dunlap said. They say
the only way you can do
that is by removing an
access point on that corridor. Theyre looking to
space out the access points,
and Dane County feels the
same.
He added that the DOT
has said no to another
access to Hwy. 138 from
the development, and
the developers have little
recourse but to continue to
try to persuade the agency.

the city is responsible for


designing and developing
the park.
As shown in the map, the
park has residential homes
on two sides with about 600
feet of access to a street.
Ald. Tom Majewski
(D-3), a former parks planning analyst in Milwaukee,
said hes not happy with the
developers proposal for the
park. He acknowledged the
developer removed some
proposed homes that would
have been next to the park,
but said its not enough.
Having housing abutting
the park makes it feel like
a quasi-public park, like
youre in someones backyard, he said.
Ald. Regina Hirsch
agreed, but Lynch said he
didnt see any negatives
with homes next to a park.
Having houses next to a
park might make the park
safer, Lynch said.
Steinkraus told the committee his preliminary plan
for the park is similar to a
Detailed Neighborhood
Plan the city approved in
2012. But Majewski disagreed, saying there was
little similarity and that
an enclosed park like this
would limit public safety
providers from easy access
to it.
The developers attorney,
Dan OCallaghan, told the
committee the developer
had dedicated 16.7 acres
for parks and trails, more
than the city ordinance
requires.

Commission advances
Deaks expansion
Owner encouraged
to reach parking
deal with neighbor
BILL LIVICK
Unified Newspaper Group

The Planning Commission gave its blessing last


week for the expansion of
a Nygaard Street restaurant.
At its
March 14
meeting,
the commission
unanimously recomm e n d e d Bush
the Common Council approve a conditional
use permit application to
expand Deaks Pub and
Grill.
The expansion includes
a patio for outdoor dining
on the southern end of the
building, at 1017 Nygaard
St.
As part of the permit,
commissioners required
that there be no music on
the outdoor patio after
10:30 p.m., and commissioners also suggested he
work out an arrangement
to improve its parking situation.
Deaks owner Jamie
Bush explained that he
bought the building several years ago and transformed it from a rowdy
tavern that had a reputation for hard drinking
and brawling to a familyfriendly restaurant.
During a public hearing, some residents living nearby confirmed that
Bush had improved the
business considerably.
One, however, complained about the overflow parking, and another
said she was worried
about noise that might be
generated from an outside
dining area.
Planning director Rodney Scheel told the commission Bush would need
a variance approved by
the Board of Appeals to
add to the building, and a
site and layout plan would
have to come back to the

commission prior to construction for its approval.


The expansion, Bush
said, would allow Deaks
to have a full dining room.
Our goal with this
expansion was to make
this more of a familyfriendly restaurant, Bush
said. This would enhance
the neighborhood.
The commission generally favored Bushs
request.
Commissioner Scott
Truehl said, I think what
Jamie has done with the
site has all been positive.
Fellow commissioner
Matt Hanna agreed, saying the expansion would
be a great addition to this
site and the community.
I would like to make this
happen.

Parking concerns
Scheel said the expansion would normally
require Bush to have 20
to 25 more parking stalls,
which would be a problem
because his customers are
already using the parking
lot of the neighboring UW
Health Clinic during peak
times.
Jerry McGuire, facility
manager at UW Health,
said eight to 10 cars often
use the clinics parking
lot after regular business
hours.
More building size
would exacerbate the
parking problem, he said.
The overflow parking is
encroaching on our lot.
Bush responded that
his restaurant isnt busy
during the clinics normal operating hours. He
said the clinic lot is empty when his restaurant
becomes so busy that his
parking lot fills up.
Bush added that parking
has always been a struggle because the building and site were poorly
designed.
McGuire said UW
Health had no issue with
the expansion and outdoor
seating, but we have to do
something about parking.
Thats our concern.
Commission members
suggested that Bush reach
out to UW Health to craft
a parking agreement.

Letters to the editor

Bradley not fit for Supreme Court


The last thing any judge
should do is to create the image
that political agendas are more
important than giving people
fair and balanced justice.
That is exactly what Justice
Rebecca Bradley did on Feb.
24 when she left oral arguments
before the Supreme Court to
deliver a talk to the Wisconsin
Manufacturers and Commerce
in Madison, a powerful political group that supports her and
represents the lobbying needs of
Wisconsin businesses.
Justice Bradley is a young,
neo-conservative judge who has
been given the royal treatment
by Gov. Walker with three successive judicial appointments
since 2012, with two in the same
year!
An open records request of
her daily schedule as circuit
and appellate court judges in
Milwaukee showed no judicial
meetings for two-and-a-half
years. How is that possible?

Either she was very sloppy with


her time management, or met
with people and organizations
that she did not want the public to know about. What do you
think the answer is?
Supreme Court justices must
be held to the highest of standards. That Rebecca Bradley
shows little concern for how
a justice appears, and cares
more for her political friends
and their needs, suggests someone who cannot fairly address
the legal concerns of hard-working people.
That is why I am voting for
Judge JoAnn Kloppenberg on
April 5. She has nearly 30 years
of judicial experience, showing
good judgement and independence along the way and demonstrating keen sensitivity to the
needs of average citizens.
Roger Springman,
City of Stoughton

Elect Tass Johnson to council


Electing Kathleen Tass Johnson would provide a fresh perspective on our city council.
Tass is one of the first people I
met when I moved to Stoughton,
and I know her very well.
She will promote growth that
is fiscally responsible, innovative and sustainable. Tass has
the vision and talent to think
beyond the status quo and urban
sprawl.
She understands that city leadership does not operate in a bubble, but instead collaborates with
and is accountable to the people
who live in the community.

Tass is trustworthy. She will


listen to the citizens of Stoughton, and she respects the democratic process.
Perhaps most importantly,
Tass will represent the voices of
our community with transparency and integrity.
Its time for a change on our
city council, so please join me in
voting on April 5th for Kathleen
Tass Johnson for District 2 alder
person.

Legislative Opinion

Be prepared before
visiting the polls April 5
W
isconsins spring election
is fast approaching. On
April 5 of this year, citizens across the state will be able to
cast their vote for the next Supreme
Court Justice, as
well as choose
who they think
would best represent them as
President of the
United States.
There are a
number of issues
that I want to
Hebl
remind voters
and potential
voters of the make your day at the
polls much easier. First, make sure
that you are registered by visiting
myvote.wi.gov. If you are not yet
registered, you can use that site to
register.
You can also register at your polling place in the weeks leading up
to the election; however, you may
want to check with your polling
place to make sure that the window
for pre-election registration is still
open. If it is not, you can still register to vote in person at your polling
place on Election Day. Polls will be
open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election

Day. As long as you are in the voting line no later than 8 p.m., you
will be allowed to cast your vote.
Second, check your photo ID.
There are a number of different
IDs that you may use when you
vote. Some of the acceptable forms
of photo ID include a Wisconsin
drivers license or a U.S. passport.
Student ID cards from a Wisconsinaccredited institution are acceptable, as long as they contain the
following information on them:
the date the card was issued, your
signature, and an expiration date no
later than two years after date you
got the card. You will also need
proof of enrollment.
Please note that these are not the
only acceptable forms of ID. For
a more comprehensive list, and to
find out how to get a free voter ID
card, go to bringit.wi.gov. UWMadison students that do not have a
card can get a free voter ID card at
the Wiscard Office at Union South.
There is a great resource for student
voters at vote.wisc.edu.
If you wish to avoid long lines
on Election Day, you can also participate in early voting by casting
in-person absentee ballots at your
local clerks office on weekdays

in the two weeks leading up to the


election. You can begin to vote
early this year on Monday, March
21. Early voting goes until the
Friday before the election, ending
Friday, April 1 for the spring election. Check with your local clerks
office to find out their hours. Unfortunately, there is no early voting on
weekends.
Whether we like it or not, new
voter ID rules are in effect in the
state of Wisconsin. I want to make
sure that everyone has enough
information that they know what
is expected of them at the polls,
because every Wisconsinite has the
right to be heard.
Rep. Gary Hebl represents the
46th Assembly District, which
includes the cities of Sun Prairie
and Stoughton, the village of Cottage Grove, and the townships of
Cottage Grove, Dunkirk, Pleasant
Springs, and Sun Prairie.

Support Christianson for re-election on April 5


I am writing to the residents of the Second Ward
today to encourage their support of Ron Christianson
in his re-election campaign as your representative on
our City Council.
Ron has worked diligently over the last 15 years
with other council members, having met head-on the
many challenges that have faced our community, and
in a cooperative effort, found resolution to them.
Realizing that Stoughton has essentially been
stuck in neutral and in a stagnant condition detrimental to both the city and our school system Ron
has taken a lead in working with the new developments to start moving this community forward again.
His vision is that in working hand-in-hand with

developers, we may finally see progress in a 10-year


effort by Ron, which is transitioning our Riverfront
from an eyesore industrial site to a new and vibrant
residential/business neighborhood.
This is the type of leader our city needs: members of the city council with purpose and conviction towards the future of Stoughton. Please join me
in my support of Ron Christianson in his efforts to
move forward together.
Rudy Silbaugh,
Former member of the Wis. State Legislature
and Stoughton resident

Tass Johnson would bring fresh voice to council


Tass Johnson is exactly the kind of person we
need representing the people of Stoughton in District 2. She is passionate about the historic value
and close community bonds we share in Stoughton, but understands the need for promoting smart
and sustainable growth and redevelopment within
our city.
She has the formal education and work experience in landscape architecture, community and
land use development, as well as environmental
conservation all which can contribute valuable
input regarding development and wise decisions
within city hall. Tass also believes in keeping open
lines of communication between her constituents

and city government so there are no surprises


when decisions are made that affect us all.
The incumbent has been the alder in District
2 for 15 years, and redevelopment has remained
stagnant for those 15 years. Tass Johnson is the
new kind of person we need to represent the people of Stoughton in District 2! She will work hard
towards preserving what we have and enhance
what we will have in the future. Please vote for
Tass Johnson April 5.

District 2 residents

Church of Albion

The sixth chapter of Ephesians advises us to be strong in the


Lord, and to protect ourselves from the evils of this world by putting on Gods armor. And while there is both natural and moral
evil in this world, natural evil being such things as famine, natural
disasters and illness, this armor is intended more as a protection
against moral evil, the kind of evil carried out by human beings of
their own volition. We dont have to look far to see human beings
taking advantage of their fellow human beings, kidnapping,
enslaving and even killing them. The worst of these actions are
the ones done in the name of God. When you see someone killing innocent men, women and even children in the name of God,
you can be sure that you are in the presence of Gods enemies.
Notice how Pauls description of the armor serves also as a
criterion of what is good. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth
buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness
in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes
from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield
of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of
the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the
Spirit, which is the word of God.Ephesians 6:14-17 NIV

Green Thursdays program features bats


Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources conservation biologist Jennifer Redell presented a talk on the
importance of bats last Thursday at Sustainable Stoughtons monthly Green Thursdays program.
Redell is also consulting with the city to determine
the best way to keep bats from roosting in the Stoughton
Opera House attic.
Opera House director Bill Brehm said that with Redells
help, hes confirmed there is a small colony of large
brown bats that hibernate in the attic during the winter.
Brehm said he would work with Redell this spring or
early summer to set up a day when we will have volunteer

observers present at sunset to identify entry points.


Once we get the full picture we will know what if any
steps should be taken, he said.
Redell recommended that the city install temporary
one-way doors that would allow bats to escape the building but not return.
In a Hub interview, she noted that bats in Wisconsin are
listed as a threatened species, and that it is illegal to kill
or harm them.

Q. Is There Help For My Dads Hearing Loss?


A. About one-third of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have hearing problems.

About half the people who are 85 and older have hearing loss. Whether a hearing loss is
small (missing certain sounds) or large (being profoundly deaf), it is a serious concern.
If left untreated, problems can get worse. Hearing loss can affect your life in many ways.
You may miss out on talks with friends and family. On the telephone, you may find it hard
to hear what the caller is saying. At the doctors office, you may not catch the doctors
Stephen Rudolph
words. Sometimes hearing problems can make you feel embarrassed, upset, and lonely.
FACHE, CSA
Its easy to withdraw when you cant follow a conversation at the dinner table or in a restaurant.
Its also easy for friends and family to think you are confused, uncaring, or difficult, when the problem may be that
you just cant hear well. If you have trouble hearing, there is help. Start by seeing your doctor. Depending on the
type and extent of your hearing loss, there are many treatment choices that may help. Technology has come a long
way! Hearing loss does not have to get in the way of your ability to enjoy life. - Steve Rudolph - 01.2015

A. The amortization period refers to the number of years it will


take to pay off your entire mortgage. Your mortgage term is the
length of time you have agreed to a certain interest rate type (for
example, fixed or variable) and a specified payment schedule.
When the term expires, the balance of the principal is either repaid
in full or the mortgage is renegotiated at then-current market rates
and conditions.

People can learn more about poverty and


homelessness in rural Wisconsin during a
discussion and film screening Thursday,
March 31, in the Stoughton High School
multipurpose room, 600 Lincoln Ave.
The Small Town Poverty and Homelessness community event will begin at 5:30
p.m. with light refreshments. At 6 p.m., Dr.
Leann Tigges, a professor of community
and environmental sociology at UW-Madison, will discuss poverty, interventions and
prevention efforts for the future.
Im really looking forward to the event
and getting a chance to talk to community
members about their perceptions and the
problems (of poverty), Tigges said.
At 6:30 p.m., two films about the impact
of homelessness on children and families
will be screened. The first video through
Wisconsin Public Television is called The
Hidden Homeless, which can be viewed
online. The second video will be a clip from
a 60 Minutes segment called Hard Times
Generation that aired March 6, 2011.
At 7:15 p.m., local agency representatives will talk about current efforts in housing the homeless and ways people can help.

Sociologist Tigges explains factors of rural poverty

Q&

Tigges

Stoughton Courier Hub: What are


some of the topics you will discuss during
your presentation in Stoughton?
Dr. Leann Tigges: Ive been asked to
talk about some of the poverty that is typical of rural Wisconsin (or outside of the
cities). The focus of the event is on small
town homelessness, but my talk will be
mostly about the conditions of low wages
and high housing costs that tend to create
the circumstances that people have trouble
kind of keeping everything in balance.
I want to talk about the differences
between our perceptions of what we think
poverty is and who we think are poor, and
what the data tell us about the risks and
about the factors that contribute to greater
risks of poverty.

poverty increased nationally and in the


state throughout the first decade of this
century, but since 2010, it pretty much
leveled off. So the most recent data really
dont show very much improvement (if
any its tiny), but weve stabilized at a fairly high rate of poverty.
In the state, since 2010 the poverty rate
has been right around 13 percent and its
just not moving. So things essentially have
not gotten better since the official end of
the recession.
Hub: What are some of the contributing
factors of poverty that often lead to homelessness?
Tigges: Inadequate income for housing
and inadequate affordable housing supply.
(The talk will) focus more on this general
problem of low-income, and then looking at who falls into that. The problem of
wages and escalating housing costs those
kinds of fixed costs that families can do
very little to adjust their budgets for, like
transportation costs and housing.
Hub: Why is it important for communities to acknowledge that small town poverty is an issue?
Tigges: There are an awful lot of people
who are in a very vulnerable zone, in terms
of their incomes and the sort of problem of
the wage structure, for those who cant get
to jobs in higher-waged areas. Like if you
can get into Madison, you have a chance
to get a better return for your education in
terms of a higher-paying job relative to your
skills.
But the sort of problems for those who
are more isolated from these higher-waged
areas of the state is, I think, a really important topic for community discussion.

START also works
closely with Joining Forces for Families as well
as school social workers. Thompson explained
why there is some overlap in services offered in
Stoughton. JFF is designed
to help families with children, the senior center is
for adults 55 and older,
and START is for anyone
between the ages of 18-55,
such as single adults or
couples without children.
All of these groups serve
a common demographic:
those facing homelessness.

Essay questions
What is the most pressing issue facing Stoughton in the
coming three years?
The most controversial is the KPW Development Project
Phase I. Phase II is now before the Council for approval and
an additional $6 million is wanted to continue for development. They have yet to start structural building for Phase I.
In my opinion, Phase II is not a cohesive plan as of yet for
the alderpersons to be able to vote for it confidently. This
was evidenced in the March 17th COW meeting when the
developer presented the Phase II plan.
What other issues should be among the Common
Councils top priorities?
The Common Council needs to work in collaboration with
the Stoughton School Board to strengthen the appeal for
families to locate to the area. In this coming decade due to
the decreasing enrollment in the schools, the school board
will have to eliminate educational opportunities due to reduction in funding for the school district.
What makes you qualified to serve on the Common
Council?
I will work towards representing the voice of the 2nd
district on Stoughtons City Council. The key values I will
represent are government transparency, sustainably enhancing our historic identity, fiscally responsible government and
supporting and strengthening our community and schools.
I am a fresh voice that has over 25 years in business, real
estate and budgets that are into the millions of dollars. I have
many times been described as the person who will get things
done.
Given the councils recent divisiveness, with the mayor
often voting to break deadlocks among alders, what can
the council do to achieve consensus on a more regular
basis?
It is the voters of Stoughton who can achieve a consensus
on a more regular basis in the council by who they vote for
in the upcoming April 5th election. The next election is going
to be the most decisive factor on the changing the deadlocks. If some of the incumbents are replaced with new representatives this will render the Mayors vote immaterial. The
Mayor will not have the ability to use only her vote for the
deciding factor of direction of the council and city. At times
when the mayor has used her vote, it has been in defiance to
the expressed wishes of the community.

What accomplishment(s)

school board member?
Over the past six years
SASD has added a state-ofthe-art Fab Lab, created youth
options courses for CNAs and
EMTs, offered staff innovation grants, developed youth
apprenticeship opportunities,
and added middle school
STEM and robotics courses.
These all occurred while keeping the focus on students,
maintaining balance between
academic, athletic and fine
arts programming, consistently exceeding state averages in
test scores and having one of
the highest graduation rates in
Dane County. We have a lot to
be proud of, and it has been
rewarding to be a part of the
district during this time.

Essay questions
What are the Stoughton
school boards most pressing
challenges or opportunities
in the short- and long-term?
The board faces many challenges going forward. In the
short term we must address
the compensation model
for district staff. Long term
challenges include declining
enrollment, growing poverty
in our district and a serious
lack of support and funding at
the state level.
There are already discussions about another operations referendum in the next
five years. What do you
think about this?
It is clear that by the 201819 school year, if nothing
changes, our district will again
face a serious deficit, even
with the generous support
our community provided with
the latest referendum. I would
absolutely support a new
referendum if the state fails to
fully fund our schools. If they
will not ask taxpayers to support public education, then we
must decide as a community to do so on our own.
Do you see the districts
ongoing budget and enrollment issues as separate or
connected? What can be
done to fix them?
These issues are absolutely
linked. We receive what state
aid we do receive based on
our student population. This
is a great town with a great
school district. I would say
that the chamber of commerce, the city council and
the school board must work
together to attract new families with young children.
What accomplishment(s)
are you most proud of as a
school board member?
I am proud of having been
involved with passing a generous ongoing operating referendum to preserve the quality
of education in this district. I
am also proud to have been
a member of the policy committee when we passed the
non-discrimination policy
including LGBT and transgender students. I am proud as
the chairperson of the facilities committee that we have
enabled energetic community
members to have a voice concerning the future of the 1892
high school building.

David Hults

David F. Hults went to


be with the Lord on March
15, 2016, surrounded by
the love of his family and
friends. He passed away
peacefully at home under
the care of Agrace HospiceCare.
David was born Dec.
2, 1938, to Palmer and
Karisma Hults in LaCrosse,
Wis. Karisma later remarried Chuck Mudtzel, who
Dave considered his father.
Dave graduated from East
High School in the class of
1958. After high school, he
attended Madison Business
College, and was united
in marriage to Pat (Karen
Friedland) on May 16,
1964. They had 51 wonderful years together.
Dave spent most of his
professional life in the automobile business. He first
started at Hult Chevrolet
as a salesman. From there,
he went to Green Bay to
work with VanBoxtel Ford
as a used car manager. For
a short period of time, he
wholesaled cars then went
to work with Middleton
Motors as a general manager. His goal was always to
have his own dealership by
the age of 40; in 1977, he
achieved his goal and started Hults Ford Mercury in
Stoughton. Daves passion
to succeed and provide for
his family allowed him to
expand his dealership to the
Incredible Hults Chrysler
Ford Mercury, Plymouth
Dodge Chevy Geo on the
Madison side of beautiful
Stoughton. After 23 years,
Dave was able to sell his
dealerships and retire.
Dave served in the Air
National Guard Reserves.
He was a long time member
of Christ Lutheran Church,
a loyal Badger fan and
financial supporter of UW
athletics. He enjoyed being
very active and was an
avid runner and racquetball
player. Most recently, he

enjoyed playing pickleball


and Texas holdem.
Dave and Pat loved to
travel: a few of their favorites were Ireland, Bachelor Gulch
in Colorado,
islands of
Hawaii, California and
Spain. Dave and Pat owned
a beachfront condo in San
Key, Fla. for 12 years,
where they enjoyed many
good times with family and
friends. In 2013, they purchased a second home in
Las Vegas, Nev. where they
enjoyed spending their winters.
Dave is survived by his
wife, Pat; son, Brad (Ana);
daughter, Chris (Andy)
Thompson of Sun Prairie;
five grandchildren, Mitch,
Matt, Cole, Taylor and
Luke; brother; Paul (Jane);
sister, Carol Bottoms of
Texas; uncle, Emrick
(Joyce) Espelien; aunt,
Esther Hayes; cousins;
brother-in-law, Bill (Merly)
Friedland of Mascoutah,
Ill.; brother-in-law, Pete
(Cathy) Friedland of Madison; sister-in-law, Cheryl
(Bob) Lytle of Poynette;
and nieces and nephews.
Dave also had a special
place and love in his heart
for the family pets.
He was preceded in death
by his parents; mother-inlaw, Carol and father-inlaw, Red Friedland; aunt,
JoAnn Peterson; and nephew, Greg Schultz and his
grandparents, Selma and
Eric Espelien.
Visitation was held Friday, March 18 at Gunderson Stoughton Funeral
Home, followed by funeral services on Saturday,
March 19 at Christ Lutheran Church and a celebration of life at the Stoughton Country Club. In lieu
of flowers, donations can
be made to the American
Lung Association or Christ
Lutheran Church.
He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather,
brother, uncle and friend
who will live forever in our
hearts and will be missed
dearly. Love you, Dave.

Scouting for food


Local troops collect 3,350 pounds
Stoughton Cub Scouts from Packs 161
and 162 and Boy Scouts from Troop 164
and 167 went door-to-door this month to
collect food for area families in need. Part
of the annual Scouting for Food, scouts
went around the community to solicit food
donations for the Stoughton Food Pantry.
On Saturday, March 5, scouts distributed
fliers to neighborhood homes in Stoughton. The following Saturday, March 12,
scouts returned to those home to pick up
and deliver the food to the Stoughton Food
Pantry.
After the food was delivered to the food
pantry, scouts helped weigh and sort the
food for the food pantry. Scouts helped
load some of the food that the Stoughton
Food Pantry delivered to Stoughton United
Methodist Church.
The scouts collected just over 3,350
pounds of food, which will be distributed
to Stoughton families in need.
