When an administrative position
recently opened up at Kohler
Schools, the district reworked staff
assignments among current em-
ployees to create a new position
called the Director of Student Life.
This position oversees online stu-
dent learning, marketing and pro-
motion of school, advisory group
development, volunteer develop-
ment, athletics, and school spirit
and pride, as well as a number of
other responsibilities.
Long-time Village resident and
Kohler Schools alumnus Doug
Bocchini accepted the position this
past October. Bocchini and his
wife, Lisa, also a KHS alumnus,
are known around the Village as
passionate supporters of Kohler
Schools.
Bocchini leaves behind a 25-
year career at Kohler Co., where
he began in 1986, working in sales.
He soon joined the marketing team
where he worked for the com-
panys faucet division for nearly
twelve years, before moving to the
fixture team as Director of Chan-
nel Marketing. In Channel Mar-
keting our main focus was to work
with customers across the United
States developing programs, pro-
motions, showrooms, literature
and merchandising, said Boc-
chini. The focus of Bocchinis past
three years at the company was on
the retail end, working with Home
Depot and Lowes. By coinci-
dence, Bocchinis last day at
Kohler Co. was the day of his 25th
anniversary of employment at the
company. I thank Kohler Co. all
the time for the opportunities they
gave to me and my family, said
Bocchini. It was a fantastic run!
Bocchini said Kohler Co. and the
Kohler Family were extremely
supportive of his decision to pur-
sue an opportunity to do something
totally different and something he
has always had a passion for
working with young adults.
In his role as Director of Student
Life, Bocchini oversees the follow-
ing programs:
Online Learning Program
Currently, there are 27 students
enrolled in a variety of online
learning courses from a number of
providers. Most of the classes stu-
dents take are classes that are not
currently offered at Kohler
Schools. Bocchini works with stu-
dents to make sure they are on task
and up to speed with the classes.
Bocchini said most of the students
are going through the process for
the first time, so some need more
support than others. Hes working
on developing a student/parent
handbook, as well as a variety of
other materials to help the students
stay on top of online classes. Since
online learning is becoming so
prevalent in the workplace, the
school plans to evaluate whether
every student should be taking at
least one online class over the 4
years of high school.
Marketing of the School
Working with a team of teach-
ers, staff, parents, and students, the
school is in the process of develop-
ing a long term sustainable market-
ing plan that will include literature,
merchandising, website upgrade,
and internal marketing to students.
The team is currently working on
materials for the Open Enrollment
Fairs to be held on January 14 for
the high school, and January 26 for
the elementary/middle school.
Plans are also in the works to give
a facelift to many of the school
hallways with ideas and work from
the students in an effort to market
the school to current students to
help them feel that they made the
right choice in being part of Kohler
Schools.
Advisory development
Advisory meetings consisting of
groups of 12-14 students take
place every two weeks. During this
time, the students meet with one or
two advisors to discuss issues and
topics that affect students and so-
ciety. In November and December,
each advisory team was part of a
half-day Advisory Retreat, where
the goal was to encourage students
to begin taking on leadership roles
within the advisory group, and lead
in the development of the subject
matter for future advisory sessions.
This in turn will allow each advi-
sory group the opportunity to cre-
ate their own identity and develop
ownership for the success of the
advisories. The retreat was part of
the leadership development train-
ing funds that were generously do-
nated by the Kohler School
Foundation
Athletic Director
Overseeing 16 high school ath-
letic teams and several middle
school teams is a challenge, said
Bocchini. During his first few
weeks on the job in October, Boc-
chini was thrust into overseeing
the hosting of girls sectional ten-
nis, boys regional and sectional
soccer, girls Central Lakeshore
Conference volleyball tournament,
girls middle school basketball, and
preparations for boys and girls
high school basketball. Bocchini
said the school has a great group
of coaches at both high school and
middle school, who are very dedi-
cated to our daughters and sons.
He said the key to the long-term
success of the schools athletics is
the development of youth pro-
grams, some are in great shape, but
others still need work.
Kind Matters initiative
The school is dedicating a great
deal of effort in collaborating with
teachers, parents, and students in
creating educational programs and
events that the school hopes will
build a more caring school and
community. Last years kick-off
event included the internationally
recognized Kind Campaign, which
included a Challenge Day and We
are the Drum program. These
events helped to open up conver-
sations between students and
adults with regard to kindness, ap-
preciation of differences, and heal-
ing. As the Kind Campaign
develops, it will divert to what we
refer to internally as Bomber
Pride, said Bocchini. This will
focus on expectations of our stu-
dents in a variety of environments
from classroom, to lunchroom, on
buses, and everywhere in be-
tween. Several legs of this team
are working on a variety of as-
pects, including Positive Behav-
ioral Interventions and Supports
(PBIS), Be The Change Team, and
Cyber-bullying, just to name a few.
Bocchini is also working on de-
velopment of a student volunteer
program, mentoring program, and
plans for clubs and other extra-cur-
ricular activities. He said his new
position has led him to an even
greater passion toward the school
than he had before, and he has
grown to love the school, the stu-
dents, and the people who work
within the building. The passion I
thought I had before is even larger
after being in the school. The over-
all support I have received has
been fantastic. Teachers, staff, par-
ents and students have all been
willing to help out, give ideas, and
give a hand into initiatives we are
trying to accomplish. No doubt
people were wondering what I was
going to be doing. I hope they can
see the things we are putting to-
gether can have a long-term impact
for the school. So much of what
were trying to do is new or fairly
new, so were all learning together.

Open Enrollment Information
Fair to be held by Kohler High
School on January 14
Wisconsins open enrollment
deadline for the 2012-2013 school
year is quickly approaching, and
Kohler High School invites all area
parents and students to attend its
Open Enrollment Information Fair
on Saturday, January 14, from
11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. TheFair
will feature booths manned by cur-
rent students, teachers, and
coaches providing information
about the opportunities at Kohler
Schools. There will also be a live
demonstration of Kohlers state-of-
the-art distance learning center,
which allows on and off-campus
students to interact in a classroom
setting via video conference. Tours
of the school will be available
throughout the fair, along with
complimentary samples of
Kohlers fresh lunch menu options.
The state of Wisconsin allows
families the option to choose the
school that best fits the needs of in-
dividual students, but the time-
frame during which students may
apply is strictly enforced. For the
2012-2013 school year, the online
application will only be available
from midnight February 6, 2012,
until 4:00 p.m. on February 24,
2012. (Visit the Wisconsin Depart-
ment of Public Instruction website
at dpi.wi.gov/sms/psctoc.html for
more information).
With the open enrollment period
quickly approaching, it is vital for
parents and students to obtain all
necessary information needed to
make the best decision. Kohlers
Information Fair on January 14 is
a great way to gather information
about the opportunities that Kohler
High School has to offer.
With 18 extracurricular clubs, 16
athletic teams, an outstanding per-
forming arts program, and nation-
ally-recognized award-winning
teachers, Kohler High School has
something to offer every high
school student. Kohler Schools Su-
perintendent and High School Prin-
cipal Marty Lexmond has led the
school toward a renewed focus on
the development of 21st century
skills. Kohler has a lot of tradition
and strong values when it comes to
education. We want to build upon
these strengths and utilize the spirit
within the current student popula-
tion as we evolve to meet the needs
of the future, Lexmond said.
Committed to continuing the excel-
lent academic outcomes of Kohler
Schools, Mr. Lexmond works
closely with community members,
parents, students, and staff in order
to develop a curriculum that en-
gages and inspires its students.
One of Mr. Lexmonds first ini-
tiatives was to create the new posi-
tion of Director of Student Life,
which focuses on all aspects of the
academic experience at Kohler
Schools. The position was filled in
October, 2011, by Doug Bocchini,
a Kohler alumnus and long-time
supporter of Kohler Schools, who
is brimming with ideas. Bocchini,
is passionate about his new respon-
sibilities and looks forward to wel-
coming new students into the
Kohler school community. It is
exciting to be a part of the lives of
these Kohler students. I enjoy hear-
ing their ideas and creating oppor-
tunities for them to express
themselves during their academic
careers at Kohler, said Bocchini.
Mr. Bocchini is confident that the
Open Enrollment Information Fair
will showcase the strengths and
spirit of Kohler High School, and
he personally invites everyone to
attend on Saturday, January 14,
2012, from 11 a.m.-1.00 p.m.

The Kohler Police Athletic
League (KPAL) will hold its an-
nual brat fry on Sunday, February
19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the
Kohler firehouse on Highland
Drive.
KPAL sponsors and supports
local sports programs for Kohler
youth, and other programs that
promote good citizenship. For the
year 2011, KPAL donated nearly
$10,000 to the youth of the Village.
The organization awarded two
high school scholarships, donated
to the Kohler scouting program,
sponsored the summer swim meet
at the Kohler pool, Kohler Soccer
Club, youth baseball and flag foot-
ball leagues, and summer soccer
and basketball programs. KPAL
was very excited to once again be
a major contributor to the very suc-
cessful junior fall football league,
which consisted of players from
sixth, seventh and eighth grade.
KPAL members and youth who
benefit from some of the major
programs will be going door-to-
door in the Village selling tickets
for this most important event. If
you miss the sale, contact your fa-
vorite KPAL member for tickets.
Better yet, join the KPAL and be-
come involved with projects that
benefit Kohler youth.
Tickets purchased in advance are
one dollar each, and will be en-
tered in a drawing for many door
prizes, including gift certificates
and other fine items. The grand
prize this year is a $250 Kohler
Hospitality certificate. The tickets
are also good for one dollar in
trade toward the purchase of food
and drink on the day of the brat fry.
They include discount coupons re-
deemable at Eat At The Lake,
Bread & Bean Eatery, Falls Fire-
house Pizza, and Cousins Subs.
Though KPAL functions are
held at the firehouse, including the
brat fry and regular meetings, they
are not to be confused with the
Kohler Fire Department, though
the two organizations often coop-
erate in a number of ways. KPAL
is currently exploring additional
fundraising activities to replace
revenue lost from the discontinua-
tion of their monthly Sunday
Bingo night.
KPAL is proud of their support
of Village youth and appreciate the
support of all its contributors. They
hope for a large turnout at the brat
fry so they can continue their mis-
sion of promoting good citizenship
and encouraging youth to grow to-
ward reaching their potential. Any-
one in need of tickets or wishing to
join KPAL may call Jim Tesmer at

Kohler Girl Scout Troop 45 will
be holding a Sweater and Sweat-
shirt Drive the week of January 9-
13 at the school and Village Hall.
Troop 45, made up of seventh
graders and their leaders, came up
with the idea after reading a plea
from a local parent looking for
warm clothing for students at a
high school in Sheboygan. The
plea, which came on behalf of the
South High School Clothing
Pantry, brought to the attention of
the girls that over 50% of the stu-
dents at that school fall below
poverty levels. This leaves many
without warm clothes to make
going to school comfortable,
something the girls of Troop 45 re-
alized they have usually taken for
granted.
The Girl Scouts recognized that
most of them had at least one
sweater or sweatshirt in their closet
that was gently used, and could
likely mean more to someone in
need. They decided to see how
many others in the school and
community would feel the same.
So if you find yourself receiving
a new sweater for Christmas, and
believe there is one that you likely
wont wear anymore, bring it in!
Or, if your New Years Resolution
is to clean out your closets and
streamline your wardrobe, con-
sider bringing your gently used,
large child or adult sized items in
to the collection boxes at the
school or Village Hall.
Thanks in advance from the
Kohler Girl Scouts of troop 45!

Being a Chicago Bears fan
in the Land of Cheeseheads
can be frustrating to say the
least. Being a Bears fan
when your most hated rival is
chasing history (again) can
be downright intolerable.
Thankfully, Kohler is home
to more than a dozen families
of Bears fans who recog-
nized an opportunity to make
history of their own during
the Fall Follies last October.
The first item up for auc-
tion: Hang the flag of your
choice over the school for a
week.
Before the countless Pack-
ers fans in attendance could
say, Super Bowl Shuffle,
the plucky bunch stunned
everyone by pooling their re-
sources to win the auction
and pull off the coup of the
evening.
Frankly, we were sur-
prised how easily it came to-
gether, one contributor
quipped. We expected Pack-
ers fans to put up more of a
fight. But Im sure theyll be
more for us prepared next
year!
Eight weeks later, not even
a gray, rainy December
morning could dampen the
spirit of the more than 20
parents and children who
turned out in full Bear-
aphenalia to cheer as the
colors of their beloved Bears
sent graciously from Halas
Hall in Chicago was raised
over Kohler School.
It doesnt compare to
winning the Super Bowl,
noted one fan. But seeing
that flag flying high will sure
bring a smile to my face for
the next seven days!

Kohler fifth grader Christian
Pieper was a winner of the tra-
ditional Be A Green Bay Pack-
ers Water Boy/Water Girl
promotional sponsored by
Nicolet Water, which has been
the official water of the Green
Bay Packers for 19 years. The
winners are introduced to the
home-game crowd as they race
across Lambeau Field before
kickoff carrying an empty bot-
tle of Nicolet Natural Artesian
Water bottled water,
Children ages 8 years through
14 years are eligible to partici-
pate by entering at participating
retail stores throughout Wis-
consin that carry Nicolet Natu-
ral bottled water. Christians
winning entry was chosen at
Woodlake Market in Kohler.
When Christian was later
asked what he thought the best
part of the December 11 game
against the Oakland Raiders
was, without hestitation he
replied, The Packers win-
ning!
The Kohler High School boys
soccer team was awarded the Team
Academic Award by the National
Soccer Coaches Association of
America. This award is given to high
school soccer teams who maintain a
team GPA of 3.25 for the entire aca-
demic year. Kohler was one of 135
boys teams in the country and one of
only five teams in the state to receive
the award. This is the fifth year in a
row the team has won this award.

Get Ready Now for Wisconsins New Voter
Photo ID Rules
We urge voters to plan now to make sure they
have the right photo ID to vote starting in Feb-
ruary 2012. Voter Photo ID became law in Wis-
consin in June, and most people already have
the photo ID required to vote. In addition to re-
quiring voters to show an acceptable photo ID
to receive a ballot, the law contains other im-
portant changes to the voting process. Here are
the new rules for voting at the polls on Election
Day and by absentee ballot:
Election Day On Election Day, voters must
show one of eight different kinds of photo ID to
receive a ballot. Four of the most common
types of acceptable photo IDs are a Wisconsin
driver license, a Wisconsin state ID card, a mili-
tary ID card or a U.S. Passport. These photo
IDs are valid even if theyve expired after the
most recent general election which was Novem-
ber 2, 2010.
Four other kinds of photo ID are also accept-
able, if they have not expired: A Certificate of
Naturalization; a driver license or state ID card
receipt issued by the DMW; an ID issued by a
Federally recognized Wisconsin Indian tribe; or,
a photo ID issued by a Wisconsin accredited
university or college that meets certain require-
ments, and is accompanied by proof of enroll-
ment.
Note that many Wisconsin colleges and univer-
sities are issuing special student ID cards that
comply with the Voter Photo ID Law, while a
few are modifying existing student ID cards.
Students who do not have one of the other ac-
ceptable forms of ID should check with their
school for more information about getting an ID
card.
It is important for voters to know that their
photo ID is not required to include a current ad-
dress. The purpose of requiring a photo ID is to
prove your identity, not where you live. Also,
the name on your photo ID does not have to
match your name on the poll list exactly, so Jim
is perfectly acceptable for James, Sue for
Susan, etc.
If you do not have a valid Wisconsin driver li-
cense or state ID card, you can receive a free
state ID card from your local DMV if you
specifically request a free ID for voting pur-
poses. Please contact your local DMV or the
clerks office for more information.
Another important change on Election Day is
that voters must sign the poll book next to their
name to receive a ballot. Voters should sign the
poll book as they would normally sign any
other document, i.e. a check, the back of a
credit card, etc. Voters with physical disabilities
may be exempt from signing.
You can still register to vote on Election Day,
but voter registration requirements have
changed. A person must now be a resident of
the jurisdiction in which they wish to vote for
28 consecutive days instead of the previous 10-
day residency requirement.
Absentee Voting The Voter Photo ID Law also
made important changes to absentee voting.
During in-person absentee voting at the clerks
office, voters must present a photo ID, just like
on Election Day. The period for in-person ab-
sentee voting has been shortened. It now begins
the third Monday before the election, and ends
at 5 p.m. or the close of business, whichever is
later, the Friday before the election.
Photo ID will also be required for mail-in ab-
sentee voting, and most absentee voters must
provide a photocopy of their photo ID card with
their absentee ballot request. Voters who fax or
email the clerk to request an absentee ballot
may return a photocopy of their photo ID with
their completed ballot.
There is an important exception for voters in
nursing homes and care facilities, as well as
those at home who are indefinitely confined
due to age, physical illness or infirmity, or who
are disabled for an indefinite period. Instead of
providing a copy of their photo ID, they may
have their absentee witness verify their identity.
If you meet the definition of an indefinitely
confined voter, please contact the clerks office
for specific information about voting rights in
nursing homes and care facilities.
For specific questions on how the new Voter ID
law affects you, please contact the Clerks Of-
fice at 920-459-3873,
LLindow@kohlervillage.org or
CGamb@kohlervillage.org. Voters are also
encouraged to visit the Wisconsin Government
Accountabilitys Voter ID website,
http://gab.wi.gov/elections-voting/photo-id,
for additional information about the new law.
Property Tax Bills
Tax bills were mailed on December 15. Tax
payments can be paid in person. Taxes will be

land Drive. Drop off - 4-hour access drop box is

installments. Payments in full are due January
31, 2012. Installments are due: first half due
January 31, 2012; second half due July 31,
2012.
Real Estate property owners that need a copy of
a prior year property tax receipt will need to
contact the Sheboygan County Treasurers Of-
fice at 920-459-3015.
Dog and Cat Licenses
All dogs and cats over 5 months of age require
licensing. Rabies vaccination certificate is re-
quired at time of licensing. Dogs and cats must
be licensed by April 1 of each year. The fees
are:
Unaltered dog/cat $12.00
Altered dog/cat $ 5.00
Late fee $ 5.00
A reminder about restraining
regulations for pets:
Any person owning or having such charge, cus-
tody, care or control of any cat or dog shall
keep such animal exclusively upon his or her
own premises by personal and direct supervi-
sion, such as:
A. By voice command of the person physically
present;
B. By keeping the animal upon an appropriate
chain or tie no longer than fifteen (15) feet in
length;
C. By keeping the animal in an enclosed yard,
either walled or fenced, including by under-
ground electrical fence; or
D. When taken off the premises, the cat or dog
must be kept in an appropriate retaining enclo-
sure, or be restrained by a substantial leash or
chain not exceeding six feet in length in the
hands of the person directly controlling the
movement of the cat or dog.
From Kohler Police Chief
Bill Rutten
Identity Theft: Have you or someone you
know been a victim of Identity Theft. Statistics
show that over 8 million Americans have been a
victim of identity theft. The perpetrators are
looking for victims without criminal records
and good credit ratings, thats you! Protect
yourself with some easy to do steps. Shredding
your confidential mail is very important. Re-
move unnecessary identifying information from
your checks, such as phone number and Drivers
License number (a retailer will ask if they need
it). Check your credit report annually for free at
www.annualcreditreport.com. You do not need
to sign up for anything at the site to get the re-
port. Stop unsolicited pre-approved credit cards
from being mailed by calling 1-888-5-OPTOUT
(1-888-567-8688); you can opt-out for life.
Also, never answer questions about your iden-
tity on the phone or by unsolicited e-mails. Your
bank or other financial institutions have all your
information, they dont need you to tell them
again by e-mail or phone. The Kohler Police
Department has a link about other ways to pro-
tect yourself at www.kohlerpolice.com.
Other Scams: There are residents in the Village
that have been targeted by other scam artists.
Many of them prey on your good intentions of
helping those in need. If you get a phone call
that someone you know is stuck in a foreign
country and cant leave until they are wired
money, dont believe it. Any time that a sweep-
stakes calls and says that you won and just need
to be wired some money for any reason, dont
believe it. If someone is planning on buying
something from you and accidentally makes
the check out for too much, and asks to either
keep it or send them the difference, dont be-
lieve them. Youll be out the check amount and
the extra that you sent back. These are some of
the most common ways for you to get talked
out of your hard earned cash. The wired money
can be retrieved from anywhere, and usually it
is out of the country, so you dont have much
recourse. Also, any time you cash a check
which bounces, or is fraudulent, you are on the
hook. Your bank will make you reimburse them.
If you get targeted by one of these or another at-
tempt to swindle you of your money, call our
department for advice, 459-3877.
From Public Works
Superintendent Bruce
Neerhof
Snow Emergencies
To find out if a snow emergency is in effect for
the Village, call 459-3881. There is no parking
on village streets during a snow emergency. A
snow emergency is called when accumulation is
expected to exceed four inches. Snow emergen-
cies are typically called from 8:00 AM until
12:00 PM to give the snowplows an opportunity
to clear the streets with no cars in the way.
SNOW REMOVAL:
Winter is upon us. Here are some reminders on
Village snow removal ordinances and policies.
1. Please remember to shovel your sidewalks
within 24 hours after a snowfall event.
2. Do not blow or shovel snow back into the
street.
3. Please remove vehicles from the street when
the plows are in operation.
4. Please do not put garbage cans in the street
when it is snowing and plows are in operation.
CHRISTMAS TREE PICKUP:
Christmas trees are considered garbage and will
be picked up curbside on Tuesdays
SNOW REMOVAL AROUND KIOSKS:
It is the residents responsibility to have the
snow removed around the kiosks/NDCBU
(neighborhood delivery and collection box
unit)/cluster boxes. The Postal Service will not
deliver mail if the carrier is not able to reach the
unit the front as well as the backside. Some-
one in the unit/neighborhood needs to take the
initiative to remove the snow; or maybe the re-
sponsibility can be shared within the unit. The
Village is not responsible to keep these areas
clear of snow.
From Interim Rec
Director Bruce Neerhof
The Pool is closed for the season. We
will keep you posted about a reopen-
ing date in the Kohler Villager.

Students are required to attend school only for scheduled exams.
Teachers in physical education, art and music classes will not give se-
mester exams because their elementary school classes conflict with the
semester test schedule. Students will not attend these classes nor will

CLASS IS SCHEDULED TO MEET FOR THE ENTIRE TIME PE-
RIOD INDICATED. Students may use the library for supervised study
on both days from 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM.
Buses
School buses will follow regular schedules. If students decide to come
only for scheduled tests, responsibility for transportation belongs to the
parents and the student.
Procedures for school
closings due to
inclement weather:
We ask parents to discuss this issue with
their children now before the actual emer-
gency occurs. If you are generally not home
during the day, be sure your child knows
where they are to go if school closed early:
will they go home with a classmate; an older
sibling; or a relative? Have you made prior
arrangements with this individual to be on
stand by for these occasions? Please make
your arrangements in advance and make sure
your child is fully aware of what to do in
case school closes early.
Any decision to close school for all or any
portion of a school day will be made as early
as possible in order to afford parents the op-
portunity to make alternate child care trans-
portation plans. All closing announcements
or early dismissals will be made on the
Kohler School web site www.kohlerpublic-
schools.org and the following area radio/tele-
vision stations:

Eighth graders attend Junior
Achievement Finance Park
On Monday, November 28, the 8th
graders attended JA Finance Park in Mil-
waukee. Taking students into the world of
business, JA Finance Park is a month-long
economics education program that intro-
duces personal financial planning and ca-
reer exploration. It is designed to be taught
to middle grade and high school students
by classroom teachers. At the culmination
of this program, students visit JA Finance
Park to put into practice what theyve
learned about economic options and the
principles of budgeting. Assisted by their
teachers and a staff of trained volunteers,
they have the opportunity to actually de-
velop and commit to a personal budget.
This year, the JA Finance Park program
was sponsored by Karl Linck. Other vol-
unteers and chaperones for this field trip
were Ken Roeder, Matt Baynes, Tom
Beane, Larry Bryce, and Scott Misfeldt,
Sue Jaberg, and Lori Ollmann. This pro-
gram would not have been so successful
without the help of these volunteers!

Ring in the New Year with the new look of
Sports Core Health & Racquet Club
Sports Core Health & Racquet
Club unveiled today an exten-
sive renovation of more than
50,000 square-feet of the facility,
improving the lobby and indoor
tennis courts. New flooring,
paint, furniture and more than 60
lights provide a modern and wel-
coming atmosphere for guests.
Two of the most notable
changes in the lobby are the ren-
ovation of the main stairway
connecting the lobby level with
the lower level, and the reloca-
tion of the reception desk. The new
staircase allows for easier access to
locker rooms and workout facilities,
while the reception desk is now
closer to the front entrance, providing
high-visibility and ease at
check-in. Additionally, the in-
door tennis courts have been
resurfaced and new lighting has
been added to enhance the guest
viewing areas.
We have been over -
whelmed with the positive re-
sponse from the community,
said Garrett Mersberger, Man-
ager of Sports Core Health &
Racquet Club. This is the per-
fect time of year to get into
healthier habits and the Sports
Cores new look and improved in-
door tennis courts provide a welcom-
ing atmosphere for our new and ex-
isting guests.
The Sports Core Health & Racquet
Club now boasts more efficient elec-
trical and heating energy, using more
than 10 percent less energy as it pre-
viously consumed.

book, www.facebook.com/sportscore.

sort, for more than 30 years. The fa-
cility is located on the shore of Wood
