Sheboygan Falls
offers fun for all
ages on July 3rd
with Ducktona 500
If you’re looking for fun before Kohler’s July 4th celebration,
head over to neighboring Sheboygan Falls on Sunday, July 3 from
7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. for the 28th
Annual Ducktona 500 duck race,
classic car show, and antique boat
show at River Park in Sheboygan
Falls (behind the YMCA).
The highlight of the event is
the rubber duck race at 3:00 p.m.
on the Sheboygan River. Participants put their money on a duck
(or more) by purchasing tickets,
which are $5 each or six tickets for
$20. The ducks are released into
the river where the current takes
them to the finish line for a chance
to win $1,000, $500, $250 or $100.
Tickets are available in Sheboygan Falls at Chamber-Main Street,
Kennedy Ford, Blattner’s Piggly
Wiggly, Depke Shoe, Franklin
House, Kettle Lakes Coop, M.T.
Wooden Washtub, Minit Mart,
Rick’s House of Flowers, Falls
Ace Hardware, Meadowland
Credit Union and Sheboygan Falls
YMCA.

There are plenty of other fun
events happening throughout
the day as well. A children’s Big
Wheel race takes place at noon
for ages 3-6 (registration at 11:00
a.m. Bikes provided). There will
be a Dunk Tank Challenge, music by DJ, Dr. Rock, and a play
land and kid zone for kids offering
ten bounce houses, pony rides, a
chance to have pictures taken with
monkeys, and more. New this year
are remote-controlled boat demonstrations and a child safety area
for kids featuring Sheboygan Falls
firefighters, EMT workers, and the
diving demonstrations by the Sheboygan County Dive Team.
Classic cars will also be on display on the grounds, along with
antique boats.
Lots of food and drinks will be
available for purchase, including a
pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. until noon.

Kohler Credit Union donates $2000
to Stars and Stripes Honor Flight
KOHLER, WI — Stars and
Stripes Honor Flight will receive
a $2000 donation from Kohler
Credit Union thanks to the success of the Sheboygan County
Memorial Day brat fry. The Memorial Day brat fry was made
possible due to donations from
several local businesses including
the newest sponsor, Miesfeld’s
Meat Market. Other brat fry sponsors included Johnson’s Bakery,
Sargento Cheese, Lakeside Pepsi
and Festival Foods.
Stars and Stripes Honor Flight,
located in Port Washington, is a
nonprofit organization that honors
veterans by flying them to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials. Kevin Kirst, spokesman for
Stars and Stripe Honor Flight, was
one of the speakers at the Sheboygan County Memorial Day ceremony and also brought along honor flight participant and activist,
Joe Demler, a WWII veteran that
stated the honor flight “was the
best day of his life.”
“We are so grateful to Kohler
Credit Union and the attendees of
their Memorial Day brat fry for

raising enough money to give four
more veterans their day of honor,”
said Karyn Roelke, vice president
of public relations at Stars and
Stripes Honor Flight. “An Honor
Flight day not only thanks a veteran; it also brings families and
communities together to celebrate
the service of our oldest veterans
and thank them for the freedoms
we enjoy. We are thrilled that four
more veterans will take this trip of
a lifetime, thanks to the support of

this great event.”

Rotary Clubs’ Making Spirits
Bright program seeks sponsors
for 2016 show
SHEBOYGAN, WI – The Making
Spirits Bright Steering Committee
and their teams of dedicated volunteers have started planning the
fifth annual Making Spirits Bright
drive-through holiday lights
show, opening November 25 in
Evergreen Park. This year, organizers hope to secure $70,000 in
sponsorship commitments for the
creation and presentation of the
electrical light displays that make
up this unique holiday entertainment event.
Some of the returning sponsors
include Ms. Brenda Potter, the
Grover Family Foundation, Rockline Industries, Festival Foods and
the Frank G. & Frieda K. Brotz
Family Foundation. Organizers
are pleased to have already se-

cured 80% of the sponsorship
goal, but opportunities for show
sponsors and advertisers still exist.
Sponsors receive a variety of
high value benefits, including
logo and name recognition in all
promotions within the park and
all external communication efforts. In addition to sponsorships,
advertising opportunities are
available in the event’s multipage
booklet, offered free of charge to
each visitor, as well as in-kind donations of goods and services.
In 2015, over 600 volunteers
from area businesses, churches,
and organizations assisted in all
aspects of organizing and staging
this event. More than 21,000 vehicles entered the park and pan-

Robert “Bob” Domann (1942-2016)
Robert John Domann,
73, of Howards Grove,
passed away at home
on Wednesday, June
22, 2016 with his loving wife at his side. He
was born September 13,
1942 in Kohler, to Robert and Dolores (Stieber)
Behrens. Sadly, Robert Behrens
was killed in the Pacific Arena in
WWII and never got to meet his
infant son. Several years later Dolores married Alton Domann and
he adopted “Bobby.” Bob married
the love of his life, Mary Ann Beninger in 1968. Together Bob and
Mary Ann had two beautiful children, Lori and Jeff. After 35 years
together Mary Ann passed away
to cancer. Several years later, Bob
married Denise Cook of Pewaukee. They enjoyed nine happy
years together until Bob’s death.
Bob graduated from Kohler
High School and went on to graduate from Ripon College. His
working life started at the Garton
Toy Company and after 12 years
Bob moved to the Kohler Company, and ended his career at Eclipse
Manufacturing.
Bob enjoyed many things, but at
the top of his list was New Orleans
Jazz music. He endlessly supported jazz music, and even produced
two CDs featuring some of America’s top New Orleans jazz musicians. You could find him in New
Orleans every April at the French
Quarter Festival. Bob was also an
avid golfer, playing with more enthusiasm than skill, but still managing to shoot two holes-in-one
including one at Black Wolf Run.
Bob and Denise enjoyed traveling
immensely. They cruised extensively to the Caribbean, Alaska,
and a river cruise in Europe. They
also enjoyed trips to London, Nova
Scotia, and Charleston. They even
attended the annual balloon festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

An avid sports fan, Bob
was also a Brewers “nut,”
and rarely missed a Packers, Badgers, or Bucks
game on TV. He was also
a member of the Sheboygan Noon Lions for many
years.
In 2012 Bob was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an
incurable blood cancer. He underwent a stem cell transplant, but
relapsed after 18 months. Shortly
after that he was diagnosed with
melanoma, another incurable cancer. Bob was inspirational fighting
his cancers. He took everything in
stride and remained the nicest man
you’d ever want to meet. He will
be missed not only by his family,
but also by many friends including
his golf gang at Town & Country,
and his McDonald’s coffee group.
Bob is survived by his mother, Dolores Domann of Sheboygan; his loving wife Denise of
Howards Grove; and his children
Lori Smith of Green Bay and Jeff
(Kirsten Lund) Domann of Madison. Bob was preceded in death
by his wife Mary Ann, his father
and step-father, two Uncles Donald (Val) Stieber and Jack (Katie)
Stieber, and son-in-law Steven
Smith.
It was Bob’s wish to have his
body donated to the Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee,
and to have a celebration of his
life.
The celebration was held on
Sunday, June 26, 2016 at Zimmer
Westview Funeral & Cremation
Care Center in Sheboygan.
The family would like to express
their deep gratitude to all of Bob’s
doctors and nurses at Froedtert’s
Cancer Center in Milwaukee, the
Vince Lombardi Cancer Center in
Sheboygan and Aurora At Home
Hospice.

Elementary Principal’s Report (Lisa
Greene)
Simran Bhatia participated in the National
Elementary Chess Championship that took
place in Nashville, Tennessee. She took
2nd place at this tournament! We are so
incredibly proud of her!
Our Science fair was outstanding! Mrs.
LaDuke did a wonderful job with organizing
131 displays and we had 165 kids involved.
Best of Class winners:
Kindergarten : Kipton Andrews
First Grade: Oscar Gumm
Second Grade: Alyssa Schubert
Third Grade: Taylor Bergham
Fourth Grade : Cole Anderson
Fifth Grade: Grant Cassady
Our PBIS celebration will take place on June
8th and will involve a trivia contest, raffle
drawings (including a Chromebook and Kids
Nook) and a dunk tank.
Our Elementary Spring concert was
fantastic! Mrs. Kukla did an amazing job with
the kids. The energy of the kids is just what
we needed to energize us all for the next 3
weeks!
After the JK and SK spring concert on
Friday, we had a little photo op for the JK
kids with little caps and gowns. (As you
can imagine, they were very cute!) As the
JK kids were walking through the cafeteria
in their caps and gowns returning to their
classroom, the middle school students burst
into spontaneous applause and a standing
ovation for our 4 and 5 year olds. This type
of community caring just does not happen
in any other school and what makes Kohler
schools truly amazing. It was such a sweet
moment,and really demonstrates why we
are so proud of our students.
MS-HS Principal Report (Timothy Brown)
Kohler Public Schools Strategic Plan
This past month the high school addressed
how we approach student balance from
a staff perspective. To these ends, we
have created a collective philosophy on
the purpose of homework and we have
created a task force to study and present
best practices and current pedagogy for
the 2016-17 school year. We have targeted
individuals to lead our in-house professional
learning, and have engaged with CESA 7
to bring in outside support towards these
goals. In this way we can all agree, support,
and document those ways we can help all
students in our learning community become
inspired, engaged and achieve.
Classroom Highlights
This year our middle school created and
hosted Workshop Wednesday. Workshop
Wednesday was organized by Heather
Sheets, middle/high school english
teacher and Laura Multer, elementary and
middle school counselor. They organized
professionals to come into our learning
environment and speak to students based
on a career inventory they took as part of our
Academic and Career Planning framework.
Students, based on interest, were assigned
to sectionals where over 13 presenters gave
talks as to their career choices and vocation
duties. This was well received by our entire
learning community and was created by our
strong professionals.
We are also very pleased to announce that
one of our students, Lily Montes, received
the Exemplary State Soloist Award for her
performance at the Wisconsin School Music
Association Music Festival. Congratulations
to Lily, her family and our educators for
helping to bring out the finest in our students.
Graduation
Graduation season is well underway.
We will be hosting our Honors Night this
Wednesday in the Memorial Theater
where we will be honoring those receiving
scholarships and stipends from generous
donors and grants. On Sunday, May 29th
we will be hosting Baccalaureate at the
Waulderhaus, Wednesday June 1 will be our
Scroll Night ceremony followed by the Class
of 2016 Dinner and the culminating event,
Graduation on Sunday June 5, where we will
celebrate our outgoing senior class as they

transition beyond our learning community.
Special athank you to Lynn Vander Schaaf,
administrative assistant and Christine Voice,
high school counselor for their hours and
dedication to our graduating seniors.
Staffing
Before the board we offer two excellent
candidates. We recognized, early in the
hiring process that our mission to attract,
retain and retain the finest staff possible is
not possible over the summer months. We
actively searched candidates early in the
process and we believe we have found the
best fit for our learning community.
Our only position this month is that of our
Middle and High School Choir Director. Our
candidate, Eva Stokes comes highly
recommended from all of her former
teachers and co-workers. We were looking
for an educator that has the capacity to grow
in this position behind two very talented
teachers to help us replace the retiring Lori
Hucke. Not small shoes to fill. We were
also looking for someone who could be
molded into the image of what our Fine Arts
department looks like. Eva was the most
mature candidate, even at her young age
and experience. We interviewed her in the
choir room and she moved about the space
as if it was her own, even making us sing for
her. We believe she will be a perfect fit for
our learning environment for years to come.
Review of District Finances
The District renewed health insurance
coverage with Prevea for the period July
1, 2016 – June 30, 2017. The goal was to
continue to provide quality and competitive
medical coverage, while balancing this
with limited resources. The result is that
the District continues to offer quality and
competitive medical coverage, with costsharing continuing to be part of the strategy.
The 2015-16 school year is projected to be
under budget, largely as a result of vacant
positions being filled with lower cost longterm substitutes. These positions will be
filled with permanent staff for the 2016-17
school year.
The Finance Committee reviewed staffing
updates for the 2016-17 school year and the
preliminary/balanced budget for 2016-17.
This preliminary budget will be presented to
the Board for approval in June.

FROM DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
BRETT EDGERLE

Cross Connection Control (Backflow) Program
The Village of Kohler is required to move forward
with a cross connection control (backflow preventer)
program. WDNR Regulations require every water
supplier develop and implement a comprehensive
cross connection control program for the elimination
of existing cross connections and prevention, and
protection from all future cross connections.
Residential backflow preventers may exist or
be required on lawn irrigation systems, wet fire
protection systems, hot water heating (boiler)
systems, swimming pool fills, water features, etc.
Backflow preventers may also be required if there is
another water source on the site such as a well, pond,
river, etc.
Backflow preventers are the property of the water
customer and the responsibility lies with the
customer for annual testing and maintenance. The
water customer must contract with a licensed tester
to perform the required annual tests. Most local
plumbers are certified to test backflow preventers.
The contractor hired to oversee Kohler’s backflow
program is the firm of Aqua Backflow, a national firm
located in Elgin, IL, specializing in cross connection
control management. Aqua Backflow can be reached
at 847-742-2296 with any questions. Your Village of
Kohler contact, Brett Edgerle, can be reached at 920459-3881.
All water customers will be contacted by Aqua
Backflow at some point over the next few years to
perform a site survey. Inspectors will be surveying
your property to be sure that your water systems are
protected from existing or potential cross connections.
The Kohler Cross Connection Control Program is
designed to safeguard public health. We ask for your
cooperation with our program, its enforcement, and
any requests for access or information that come
from Aqua Backflow or Village staff.
The Village will host an Open House at the Village
Hall on July 14th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. This will
give you an opportunity to ask any questions you
may have with the program with representatives from
Aqua Backflow and the Village.
Yard Waste Carts
All grass clippings, leafy and loose yard waste, and
small sticks must be put in the Yard Waste Container
with the green lid. Do not rake or place yard waste in
the street. Branches may be placed at the curb for
chipping. Containers will be picked up and chipping
will performed on Tuesdays.
Garage Sale Signs
One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall
be permitted on each lot or parcel. Signs located on
public property will be removed by the Public Works
Department or Police Department.
Storable Swimming Pools
Storable swimming pools, located within the Village
limits of the Village of Kohler, require an annual
$50 permit. A storable pool is any pool, which holds
1000 gallons of water or more. Storable pools must
be located 35 feet from all lot lines and meet ALL
electrical codes for the pump.
Landscape Mulch
Residents looking for landscape mulch are
encouraged to call the Public Works Department at
459-3881. Mulch will be delivered to your home for

$10/Cubic Yard plus tax. Deliveries will be on Fridays
only.

Noxious Weeds/Grass Length
According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is the duty
of every homeowner to destroy all noxious weeds
on their property before they go to seed. Examples
of noxious weeds are Canadian thistle, English
charlock, wild mustard, creeping jenny, goatsbeard
and cotton-bearing trees. Also, grass that exceeds
nine-inches in height is in violation of this ordinance.
The Village gives a five-day notice to the homeowner
to mow their grass. Otherwise, the Village will do it at
the expense of the homeowner.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO
THIS SUMMER?

Stormwater Pollution Prevention
It is a requirement in the Village of Kohler Storm
water permit with the DNR to educate the public on
illicit discharges to the storm water system. An illicit
discharge would be the dumping of any chemical, pet
waste, or hazardous substance into the street or a
storm basin inlet. The substance would eventually
make its way into the Sheboygan River causing a
pollution hazard. To report an illicit discharge, please
call the Public Works office at 459-3881.
Road Work
Road work will continue through July. The road work
will consist of new asphalt on East Park Lane, South
Road, Grafton Court, Market Street, Church Street
(south of School Street), Sunset Road and Hawthorn
Lane. The road work will also replace some curbing,
driveway approaches, and sidewalks. Expect some
disruptions to your normal routines, and please
drive courteously and safely. Please contact the
Department of Public Works at 459-3881 for more
details. Thank you for your cooperation.

Bike Safety Day
On June 11, 2016 the Kohler Police Department held
a bike safety day in the parking lot adjacent to the
Village Hall. We had approximately 40 attendees
with the weather a bit on the hot side. Officer
Matthew Hocevar and Administrative Assistant Jodie
Kuklinski did a good job in preparing for the event
this year. Harley from Wolf’s Cycle was present
and did a safety inspection on each bicycle. Each
attendee received a new bicycle helmet and a bike
accessory along with a beverage and a bag of chips.
The bicycle helmets were provided at a discount and
fitted by Aurora Memorial Medical Center. The chips
were donated by Frito Lay of Oostburg and the soda
was donated by Lakeside Pepsi out of Sheboygan
Falls. We all look forward to doing it again next year.
Pictures of the event are posted on the Kohler Police
Department website at www.kohlerpolice.com.
