Volume 6, Number 9

APRIL, 2011
On November 13, 2012, the
Village of Kohler will celebrate its
Centennial. In preparation for this
one hundred year celebration, the
Village Board has established a
Centennial Committee. The mem-
bers are the Village Board Presi-
dent along with Sheryl Lindstrom,
Thomas Leonhardt, Amy Biznek,
Peter Fetterer, and Cindy Howley.
Since the beginning of the New
Year, the Committee has been
meeting on a bi-weekly basis to
plan for the 2012 Centennial. Prior
to this, Steve Reinbacher had
begun the initial work with the
Centennial Committee. If anyone
would like to assist with the plan-
ning of this major event, please
contact the Village Clerk/Trea-
surer’s Office at 920-459-3873
or email cgamb@kohlervillage.org.
The next Centennial Committee
meeting is scheduled for Wednes-
day, April 6, 4:00 p.m., at the
Kohler Village Hall and is open to
the public.
Kohler School Board
approves one-year
teacher contract extension
On March 17, 2011, the Kohler
School Board approved a Memo-
randum of Understanding with
teachers to extend the current con-
tract for a period of one year. The
contract extension includes signif-
icant reductions in pay and bene-
fits for teachers as well as work
rule changes providing the Board
with greater flexibility.
Under the Governor’s proposed
budget and expenditure projections
based on the current school year,
Kohler Schools will have an esti-
mated $600,000 to $650,000
budget shortfall in the 2011-2012
school year. Kohler teachers have
agreed to historic reductions, help-
ing to significantly close this gap.
These reductions exceed those that
would be realized under the
Budget Repair Bill. The reductions
also exceed those offered in sur-
rounding districts with similar
agreements.
Kohler Schools shaped a one-
year contract extension with teach-
ers to provide time to thoughtfully
move into the landscape required
by the Budget Repair Bill. The
Board is working to ensure teach-
ers remain focused on educating
children. This extension provides
that focus and also provides the
time for the Board to create the
new relationships and working
rules needed in July 2012.
= The extension includes the fol-
lowing:
= A salary freeze at the current
rate (the right to bargain wages,
as stated in the Budget Repair
Bill, is waived for one year).
= All salary lane and step in-
creases are frozen.
= Employees who participate in
the health insurance plan will
contribute 15 percent towards
the premium.
= Employees who do not partici-
pate in the health insurance plan
and receive a contribution to a
tax sheltered annuity instead of
health care will see the maxi-
mum contribution reduced from
$7,900 to $4,000.
= Employees will be responsible
for the employee portion of the
Wisconsin Retirement System
contribution.
= The top tier of the longevity pay
chart is eliminated.
= Teachers in middle and high
school will move from two
preparation periods per day to
one period and either teach an
additional section or be as-
signed a professional or super-
visory responsibility.
= Teachers who retire at the end
of the 2011-2012 school year
will receive a benefit that is half
of the current benefit (tax shel-
tered annuity from $10,000 to
$5,000 or health care from
$20,000 to $10,000).
= A provision that allows the
Board to reduce or layoff a
teacher with 30-day notice pro-
vides greater flexibility in man-
aging district finances
The Board and the Administra-
tion believe this contract extension
is an opportunity for Kohler
Schools to provide needed finan-
cial savings to the district and pro-
vide stability and focus for
teachers in these uncertain times.
The extension provides the district
with approximately $112,000 in
savings over and above what
would likely be achieved through
the Budget Repair Bill. The con-
tract extension means teachers’
take home pay will be reduced be-
tween 8% - 11%. According to dis-
trict analysis, the extension
provides the potential for $462,000
in savings in the coming school
year. Under the Budget Repair
Bill, those savings would likely be
$349,000.
The Kohler Board would like to
extend deep appreciation to our
teachers and staff working together
to shape a framework in the best
interest of Kohler students.
Kohler Schools
to hold listening
session on budget
shortfall
On March 17, 2011, the Kohler
School Board approved a one-year
contract extension with its teachers
for the 2011-12 school year.
Teachers agreed to a salary freeze,
a 15 percent contribution to health
care premiums and to one-half of
the total required contribution to
the Wisconsin Retirement System.
This amounts to a savings of
roughly $462,000. Additional con-
cessions pertain to work rule
changes.
The $462,000 in savings re-
duces the projected budget
$600,000-$650,000 shortfall.
However, there is still a budget
gap. The budget shortfall includes
a structural deficit being carried
forward and a 5.5 percent cut in the
revenue limit as proposed in Gov-
ernor Walker’s state budget.
In the coming months, the
Kohler School Board will cau-
tiously decide what to reduce,
change, or eliminate in the budget
in order to close the budget short-
fall. The following ideas are under
consideration:
= Reducing some electives at the
high school level
= Offering some high school elec-
tives on an every other year
cycle
= Expanding the middle school
model to include grades 6
through 8
= Combining 6th grade band with
the 7th and 8th grade band
= Reducing or eliminating 6th
grade summer band lessons
= Driving full enrollment capacity
at each grade level
= Limiting expenditures on stu-
dent workbooks in early ele-
mentary grades
= Reducing secretarial and/or
other support positions
= Combining facility/operations
management with other admin-
istrative positions
= Increasing athletic and other
extra curricular fees
= Charging a fee for athletic trans-
portation
= Reducing or eliminating funding
for performing arts and funding
it on ticket sales
= Increasing meal prices
= Adding additional layoffs or po-
sition reductions in the future
= Considering a wage freeze for
administrator and other posi-
tions consistent with teacher
concessions
The community will have an
opportunity to provide input and
share their thoughts about the
budget during three superintendent
listening sessions: Thursday,
March 31 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. in the district conference
room; Saturday, April 2 from 9:00
a.m. -10:30 a.m. in Woodlake Mar-
ket; and Thursday, April 7 from
7:00 p.m. -8:30 p.m. in the district
conference room.
The district budget is built on
the per-pupil amount the state al-
lows the district to raise through
local property taxes or state aid,
and other voter approved spending.
The revenue limit is the amount
raised through property taxes or
state aid as defined by the state.
The Kohler School Board uses the
full amount of the allowed revenue
limit to fund Kohler Schools at the
maximum level. At the risk of un-
dermining a quality education for
the students, which in time could
reduce property values, the School
Board has the power to reduce
taxes by not funding at the full rev-
enue limit.
The challenge each school
board faces is maximizing revenue,
balancing the budget, and honoring
the contribution property owners
make through taxes. When overall
property value in a community de-
creases, each property owner pays
more to the school district for each
$1000 of property value. Think of
Kohler property value as a pie,
when the pie shrinks, each portion
of the pie must contribute more to
raise the same amount of money to
fund the school district.
Because the Kohler School Dis-
tric is challenged by the need to
balance its budget, to maximize
revenue, and to minimize property
tax impact, community input is
needed. Please attend one of the
listening sessions to recommend to
the Board ways to balance the
budget and, at the same time, main-
tain a high quality school district.

The

The past sev-
eral weeks
have created
much turmoil
for WI, both
at the state
and local lev-
els. As Gov-
ernor Scott
Walker’s budget bill winds itself
through the courts and the legisla-
tive process, concerns still remain
at the local level. In the end,
though, it should be realized that
communities will have to respond
to the budget as approved by the
House, the Senate and the Gover-
nor. In any case, it can be safely
said that all of us are ready to bring
the divisive issues to rest and move
on…as the rights and dignities of
all are respected.
With the inevitability that com-
munities will be receiving less
State aid for their schools, less
shared revenue for community
services, and a freeze on tax levy
increases, your local governments
and school boards will experience
severe limitations on their upcom-
ing budgets. It is almost certain
that communities will have to
tighten their belts as the 2012
budgets are put in place.
Through all of this, however,
the education of our young people
cannot be abrogated and the youth
of today cannot be viewed as ex-
pendable commodities. The viable
future of any nation rests in its
young people. Mr. Marty Lex-
mond, District Superintendent,
definitely walks a “tight rope” in
working with the School Board,
the district staff, the students, and
the community while attempting to
maintain the strength of the Kohler
School District’s overall programs.
All of us have our personal beliefs
and agendas as to how it should be
done. In the end, though, we
should be unified on one front: the
future of our nation rests with the
youth of today. My personal best
wishes are extended to Mr. Marty
Lexmond, School Board President
Dr. Jane Bishop, and the other four
School Board members, and the
school staff as they pull together to
offer the best possible educational
programs for the youth of our com-
munity.
The Kohler Civic Club was or-
ganized one year ago and meets at
noon on the first and third Thurs-
day of each month. Meetings rotate
between Blackwolf Run Restau-
rant and Pine Hills Country Club.
In early May, the Village of Kohler
2011-12 Directory will be deliv-
ered to your homes and/or places
of business. The Club members are
working feverishly on the plans for
a Village of Kohler Cemetery Vet-
erans’ Memorial. A view of the
proposed plans will be forthcom-
ing soon; it is anticipated that an
architectural design will be dis-
played at the Kohler Cemetery for
the 2011 annual Memorial Day Pa-
rade. Plans include the unveiling
of the Veterans’ Memorial at the
2012 Memorial Day Parade, which
would be a highlight for the Vil-
lage of Kohler Centennial. If you
are interested in becoming a mem-
ber of this illustrious club, please
contact President Richard Balge
(920-694-1918).
The Village Centennial Com-
mittee continues to meet regularly.
We are pleased to welcome Cindy
Howley, Kohler Co. Representa-
tive, to the committee. Cindy is an
important addition, since her input
will bring to the table the history of
the Village of Kohler from the per-
spective of the Kohler Co. Other
Committee members are the Vil-
lage Board President, Amy Biznek,
Tom Leonhardt, Sheryl Lindstrom,
and Peter Fetterer.
The April 11th Board Meeting
will conclude my eight years as a
Village Board member – including
my last eight months as “interim
Board President.” A personal void
is still felt with the untimely death
of Steve Reinbacher. Sincere con-
dolences continue to be with Ann
Reinbacher and her family.
During these eight years, I have
had the privilege of serving on the
Board in several different capaci-
ties. My primary role for several
years was Chairperson of the Prop-
erty Committee. In looking back,
several projects were completed
during that time. Among those
were the new roof on Kohler Me-
morial Hall Building, construction
of the Village Children’s Swim-
ming Pool, and the Lost Woods
Park Pavilion. Included are the up-
keep and replacement of several
streets – including School Street,
renovation of Kohler Memorial
Hall/Theatre/Gym, extension of
sewer/water line on Woodland
Road, and the list goes on. Sincere
thanks are extended to Bruce Neer-
hof, DPW Superintendent, with
whom I worked closely for ad-
dressing the property agendas for
the Village; Laurie Lindow, Village
Clerk/Treasurer; and Cindi Gamb,
Deputy Clerk/Treasurer. Also, it
was an honor to serve with past
Presidents Oscar Ward and
Thomas Leonhardt.
My best of wishes are extended
to your anticipated new Board
President, Thomas Schnettler, and
the successful three of the four
candidates for trustee positions:
Thomas Gast, William Kunst,
Brian Post, and Dietmar Wohlge-
muth.
Again, thanks to all who have
made my position on the board
possible and to those with whom I
have worked. It has been an honor
in having served on the Kohler Vil-
lage Board!!!
Best of wishes…
John Egan

Good day,
I am Brian Post. I am seeking your support as a candidate for Village
Trustee in order to continue to represent you in our community’s
government.

My wife, Kim, and I carefully chose the Village of Kohler to buy our first
home. We cherish living in Kohler with our children, Noah and Hannah. We
are proudly a part of our neighborhood, the Kohler School District, and the
Village of Kohler community. I am currently a member of the Village of
Kohler Board, the Kohler Credit Union Board, and I participate in Kohler Boy
Scouts. I have also had the pleasure of working with Kohler youth baseball.

I received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Marquette
University. After a few years as an accountant, I sought to improve my
abilities by attending Cardinal Stritch University to complete a Master of
Business Administration degree.

Currently, I am employed at Kohler Co. as a Senior Accounting Analyst in
the Corporate Accounting group. I have grown through my professional and
personal experiences, including increasingly challenging roles in accounting,
information technology, consulting, project management, and management
roles.

My goals as your representative are to promote reasonable policies and to
practice responsible management. I will passionately fulfill my commitment
to you through personal integrity, consistent
decision-making, community communication
and involvement, and the application of my
experience and education.

The Village of Kohler election will be on
Tuesday, April 5th. Please consider voting
for me as you go to the poll that day.

Your support is greatly appreciated,

An open letter
to the Kohler
Community
From Kohler Schools Superinten-
dent Marty Lexmond.
Dear Kohler Schools Community:
Recent days in Madison have
generated excitement, confusion,
and an enormous amount of uncer-
tainty for educators. Circum-
stances are changing and what the
future holds for education in Wis-
consin at this point is unclear. I
want to assure the Kohler Commu-
nity that as we face the difficult
budgetary decisions ahead, we will
do so with the best interest of the
children in mind, balanced by the
needs of property owners who
fund our schools. We will adjust
our expenditures based on student
enrollment, learning needs, and a
commitment to achievement and
growth for all students. Over the
past few days we have been poring
over the information available try-
ing to determine what will likely
be the impact to our school district
in the years ahead. One thing is
clear at this point, nothing is en-
tirely clear.
The benefit of moments such as
these is that the character of the ed-
ucators in Kohler has shown
through the fog. I am impressed,
but not at all surprised, by the pro-
fessionalism of our teachers and
staff, and by the concern each per-
son has for our students and for
one another. We will continue to
work together to create a landscape
where employees are valued and
our future is clear.
No matter the outcome of the
events in Madison, our community
can be confident that we will con-
tinue to treat each other and the
children we serve with dignity and
respect. This is and will be a
Kohler Schools tradition.
On behalf of the school board
and the administrative team, I want
to thank Kohler educators for all
you do for our students and for
your friends and colleagues. Dur-
ing these times we all need to re-
member to take deep breaths, step
back to assess the facts before lis-
tening to the rumors, and seek to
understand. In all challenge there
is an opportunity, we will find that
opportunity because of our shared
commitment to serving students
and our commitment to one an-
other.
Sincerely,
Marty Lexmond
Superintendent of Schools
ally at bringing an open mind to
every board meeting in order to
collaborate and problem solve as
effectively as possible. I also bring
this same approach to the Board,
HR, Policy and Curriculum/In-
struction subcommittees that I’ve
been proud to serve on.
“Our challenge at Kohler
Schools continues to be consis-
tently delivering an energizing, rig-
orous learning environment where
all our students can learn, grow
and graduate with confidence to
contribute to a global society. What
does that require? It requires that
all of us are focused on that goal so
that every teacher helps every child
experience growth in learning. It
requires providing an environment
where teachers and staff get to do
their best work every day. It re-
quires all of us working together to
fill our classrooms with students so
that our halls, our plays, our choirs,
and sports teams are filled with
laughing, interactive, energized
and kind, young people.
“What will it take for Kohler to
be one of the best schools in this
country? What will it take for
Kohler to be a place that has a
waiting list for every grade? What
will it take for Kohler to be the
place where teachers from other
parts of the country want to teach
because they can do their best
work and be a part of an engaged
community of learning? I don’t
know all the answers. But I do be-
lieve all this is possible with a sup-
portive and active community, a
strong and effective school board,
a visionary and high-performing
administrative team, and an amaz-
ing group of teachers who are en-
ergized and step up to new
challenges because they see the
impact they can have on each and
every student. And all of this
needs to be managed within the
ever-challenging confines of our
budget.
“I want to continue to be a part
of that team. This team can take
Kohler Schools to new heights de-
spite the challenging times we are
going through. Challenge can en-
ergize and bring needed change.
What matters is how we all handle
these transitions. I want to help
where I can and strengthen this
great school district.
“We all need to do what we can
to deliver the very best learning ex-
perience for every child who
chooses Kohler Schools. And then,
when the time comes, we need to
pass on that school, that great
teaching team, that strong positive
culture, that rigorous and effective
curriculum to the next generation
of leaders, who just might be our
children. Let’s all take this mission
forward.”
Laura has a BA from Duke Uni-

“Friends of Education” Award in

Pride Committee in 2004; Chair of
the Kohler Trust for Arts and Edu-
cation; John Michael Kohler Arts
Center Board Member; Director of
Friendship House, a group home

the Advisory Board of the Center

Laura and her husband, Steve
Proudman, have three children
ages 16, 14 and 10.
Statement from Lisa Kraus:
“My name is Lisa Kraus. My
husband David and I have lived in
the village of Kohler since May
1996. We are the very proud par-
ents of one son, Andrew, who has
attended the Kohler School District
since age three in the Early Child-
hood program. He is now 12 years
old and in the 5th grade.
“I have been employed as a
teacher by the Sheboygan Area
School District for the past 18
years.I am certified in German
(grades 7-12) and in ESL (English
as a Second Language) for grades
pre-K-12. I earned my Bachelor's
Degree from UW-Eau Claire in
December 1992. I graduated with
a Masters Degree in Teaching from
Aurora University in Aurora, Illi-
nois in the summer of 1999.
“During the course of my ca-
reer, I have taken on many leader-
ship roles ranging from ELL
Middle School Department Chair
to ELL Curriculum and Assess-
ment Specialist. About 5 years ago,
I held a part time administrative
position for the Sheboygan Area
School District. For two years I
served as the coordinator of the
ELL program for the Sheboygan
Area School District.At that time I
served the SASD in this capacity,
the program included over 2,000
ELL students, 70 ELL teachers,
and between 35-40 bilingual assis-
tants. My duties included teach-
ing/EA assignments, curricu-
lum, assessments, programming,
budget, state reports, knowledge of
state and federal law, etc....
“I believe I would be an invalu-
able asset to the Kohler School
Board as I am a teacher, have ad-
ministrative experience, and pe-
haps most importantly of all, I am
a parent. As such, I can view issues
facing the Board from all perspec-
tives (i.e teacher, administrator,
and parent) and provide valuable
input and insight as I am very
knowledgeable and experienced in
the field of education.
“My son Andrew has been in
the special education program
since the age of three and I have
been his strongest advocate. I
firmly believe that we can (and
should) do a great deal more in the
Kohler School District to better
meet the needs of our special edu-
cation students. The Kohler School
District has taken steps towards
improving special education in re-
cent years, but, in my opinion, we
have room to grow. In addition, the
parents of special needs children
need someone to act as an advo-
cate. Their voices need to be heard
and they need to know that some-
one on the Board truly knows and
understands their concerns. I do.
“I have devoted my entire life
to the field of education. I have a
great deal of knowledge and expe-
rience that I can bring to the table
that will benefit everyone (stu-
dents, teaching staff, administra-
tive staff, and parents). If elected,
I look forward to working together
with the other members of the
Kohler School Board and to serv-
ing the district as well as the vil-
lage. I have a vested interest in
doing so. I look forward to the op-
portuntity to serve in this new
role.”

Dear Village Resident:
My name is Dietmar Wohlgemuth and I’m running for Vil-
lage Trustee. I have lived in the Village for nearly a decade.
I am a volunteer firefighter for our community and am rais-
ing my family here. My wife and I have come to love Kohler
and hope to spend the rest of our days here. The reason
that I would like to become a trustee is simple, I love the
Village and want to help it maintain its beauty and integrity
for years to come.
I have a vision that in 100 years it will still be family-
friendly, with the same beautiful green spaces and oppor-
tunities for a great education. For me it’s about making a
commitment…
a commitment to the Village,
a commitment to the residents I call friends,
and a commitment to doing what I can to insure the sta-
bility of our homes and workplaces. I respectfully ask for
your trust and your vote on April 5th.

with her by a therapist. She had so
much left over, she ordered tubes
from the Internet that she filled and
gave away to friends. Brotz also
searched the Internet for alcohol-
free lotions and oils for her friend’s
grafted skin, which led her to dis-
cover the abundant world of home-
made cosmetics.
According to Brotz, her home-
made products eventually helped
her friend’s burns heal “mar-
velously,” but as he was set to head
to Colorado to compete in the
Snow-Cross X-games, he tragically
died in a single car accident July
29th, 2005. Brotz decided to leave
town for awhile and moved in with
an aunt in Dallas, Texas, where she
attended Collin County Commu-
nity College to obtain an entrepre-
neurship certification.
Brotz eventually made her way
back to Sheboygan with a vision of
starting a new enterprise, and Olivü
was born. Inspiration for the busi-
ness name came from the store’s
most used product, olive oil, which
Brotz refashioned into Olivü, “be-
cause it sounds like “I love you,”
said Brotz. The 426 is a tribute to
Adam’s snowmobile racing num-
ber.
Olivü, located at 511 North 8th
Street in Sheboygan, also hosts par-
ties for little girls and adults, where
guests mix up their own balms, lo-
tions, soaps and more. Products are
also available for ordering online at
olivu426.com.
Brotz’s vision of starting her
own enterprise was consummated
with the Business of the Year
award. “I truly am speechless, I'm
going to be jumping up and down
for the next week,” Brotz said dur-
ing her acceptance speech.

KOHLER VILLAGER KOHLERVILLAGER.COM 12
By Bruce Erickson
It would be 15 years before
Kohler would get back to the state
tournament in Madison. Not that
they did not have some good teams
during these years, but they ended
up being ousted from the tourna-
ment by schools with larger enroll-
ments. The 1964 team played
Sheboygan North in the subsec-
tional tournament and fell by the
score of 49-44. Led by Paul Maki
and Jim Dickleman, Kohler was
ahead for most of the game before
losing. The 1967-68 team was one
of the Kohler High School’s
strongest ever. With a starting
lineup of John Wolf, Jack Capelle,
Tom Gordon, Mike Rademacher
and John Hammer, they posted a
record of 19 and 2. That team av-
eraged 90 points a game during the
regular season topping 100 points
in six games and 90 points in six
others. They eventually lost to
Sheboygan South in the tourna-
ment with star forward Jack
Capelle missing the game with the
flu. From 1967 through 1971
Kohler posted a record of 76 wins
an 10 losses. They made good runs
in the tournaments, but lost to
Manitowoc three years in a row.
Manitowoc’s enrollment was over
1,900 students in three grades
compared to Kohler’s 150. In-
equality such as this led to the
WIAA making a drastic change in
tournament play during the 1971-
72 season. A class system was es-
tablished for the first time since
1938. There would be two classes
competing for trips to Madison
with eight teams from Class A and
four teams from Class B. The en-
rollment cut off was 600 students.
The 1971-72 team posted a
record of 15 and 3 during the reg-
ular season. They were tied for the
conference championship by JFK
Prep, who beat the Bombers in the
last game of the season. That loss
snapped a 27 game conference
winning streak. They were led by
6'2'' senior Joe Kleefisch, who was
a great leaper and scorer. During
his senior season he joined the elite
1,000 point club. Other starters
were Dave Miller, Dennis Terry,
Mike Ehren, Dave Hammer and
Russ TenPas. Jack Regan played
an outstanding role in the team
success and was nicknamed
“Super Sub.” Other team members
were John Keller, Steve Schepp-
mann, Jeff Prange, Harry Shaw,
John Rademacher, and Bob
Klauck. The team started the tour-
nament with victories over
Howards Grove and Elkhart Lake.
Then it was on to Regionals at
Howards Grove, where they would
face their most challenging games
in their march to state.
First up was Gibralter and
Kohler got off to a great start lead-
ing at half-time by a score of 49-
35. Gibralter put up a valiant
second half battle as Dennis Terrt’s
tip-in sent the game into overtime.
Kohler outscored Gibralter in the
extra period and won 84-80. After
the exciting Friday game, Kohler
was not given much of a chance
against a tall and talented team
from Brillion. Brillion was so con-
fident that they had already sched-
uled their practice time for the
Sectional Tournament at West
Bend. Lady Luck smiled on the
Bombers though as a March bliz-
zard roared through Wisconsin on
Saturday postponing the game
until Monday. This gave them the
extra rest the Bombers needed.
Kohler played even with Brillion
in the first half and trailed 39-37 at
intermission. In the second half
Kohler went into a full court press
and countered Brillion’s collapsing
defense with some brilliant outside
shooting by Ehren, Hammer and
Miller. Mike Ehren hit six long
shots in a row in the third quarter
helping Kohler to a 17-2 run.
Kohler had four players in double
figures for the game: Kleefisch had
28, Hammer 20, Miller 18 and
Ehren 15.
Now it was on to the sectionals
in West Bend. The first opponent
was McFarland, who was led by
6'5'' center Bill Pierson, who
would later play for the Badgers.
Joe Kleefisch was outstanding in
this game, as he went around and
over Pierson for a 20-point first
half. Dave Miller had an excellent
second half and finished with 24
points. Kohler won 85-72. Next up
was Oakfield and Kohler won
going away 72-57. Kohler would
join three other high schools as the
last ones standing in Class B.
As the player bus headed north
on Hwy. 57 that night, and was
turning on Hwy 28, the hero’s pa-
rade headed back to the Village.
Celebrating went late into the
night. Kohler had made it back to
State for the first time since 1956.
The next week brought great ex-
citement to the school and commu-
nity. Kohler resident Jack Stillwell
provided all fans with white straw
hats that would be a signature item
for 1972 and other state tourna-
ment appearances to come.
Their first opponent in Madison
was a talented Bloomington team,
which had lost only one game all
year. It was appropriate that Kohler
would play in the first class basket-
ball game held in Madison since
1938. The Bombers put up a gal-
lant fight, but fell by a score of 79-
64. The game was tight for three
quarters, but Bloomington pulled
away with the win. The thrills and
excitement will long be remem-
bered by all who were involved in
the spring of 1972.
In addition to his great basket-
ball career, Joe Kleefisch was a
state champion in track and starred
in football. After graduation from
high school Joe entered the United
States Naval Academy. After grad-
uation, Joe became a naval pilot
and was chosen to be a Top Gun
member and instructor. Joe accu-
mulated more than 4,000 hours of
jet flight time during his land and
sea tours. He rose to the rank of
commander and became com-
manding officer of the Strike
Fighter Squadron V-25 known as
the Fist of the Fleet of 1964. He
was a rising star in the Navy, when
he tragically lost his life in a jet
crash in May of 1995. He was 41
years old.
Joe Kleefisch soaring.

to honor and appreciate Kohler
Schools’ staff. Teachers and ad-

complimentary drinks and hors
d'oeuvres at Sweet Potato’s. This

with a Vera Bradley token of ap-
preciation from the store as a thank
you for all they do for the students
and community.
While some shopped around for
gifts for family and friends using a
special Kohler Staff discount, oth-
ers enjoyed trying on the latest
fashions. Teachers agreed it was
nice to visit with each other in a
different atmosphere. “It was a
wonderful opportunity to share
laughter and positive ideas about
all the wonderful things going on
in our lives, our school, and our
community. Sometimes we forget
about the great people all around
us. The atmosphere was very
warm and inviting to let go of
some daily "stress,” said Kohler
High School Chemistry & Physics
Teacher Dana Krejcarek. “How
nice to feel so appreciated as a
teacher,” added Jessie Good, the
high school physical science & bi-
ology teacher.
Employees had a great time as
well. “It was rewarding to be able
to give back to those who make
such a selfless effort every day to
help educate,” store manager Teri
Mattek said. Sweet Potato’s has
had a longstanding tradition of
supporting Sheboygan County
Schools and holds Kohler Schools,
their fine faculty and students near
and dear to their hearts.
On March 5, Junior Achieve-
ment (JA) held its annual Business
Challenge competition at Acuity.
The Business Challenge is a com-
petition where teams compete
against each other as CEO's of
their own companies. Two stu-
dents and a JA business volunteer
make up each team. A total of
fifty-six teams divided into seven
groups of eight teams then run
their companies over the JA Titan
computer business simulation pro-
gram. Teams must decide on the
price to charge for their product,
how much to advertise, how much
product to make, how big of a fac-
tory to build, and how much to
spend on research and new fea-
tures. The simulation creates an
interactive environment between
the companies and also randomly
introduces varying economic con-
ditions. The teams competed in
the morning for seeding into the
afternoon round. Final winners are
selected based on overall perform-
ance in the afternoon round of ap-
proximately ten financial periods.
Kohler High School led all She-
boygan area schools with a total of
22 participants that won 4 out of
the 7 possible groups. Christian
Ertel and Garrett Griswold won the
overall competition and will ad-
vance to the Wisconsin State JA
Business Challenge in April. They
each also received a $1500 Schol-
arship to the school of their choice
from the Albinger Charitable Fund
and a $50 gift card from Johnson
Bank. James Misfeldt and Nick
Pfrang won Group B and $50 gift
cards from Community Bank and
Trust. Kara Seamann and Jenna
Peters won Group D and $50 gift
cards from HSA Bank. Hannah
Fenton and Kaylie Ladwig won
Group F and $50 gift cards from
Discovery Coach Lines and Rural
America OnShore Outsourcing.
Jodi Grossen, Kohler Business
Teacher and Heather Reader-Schu-
bert, Kohler Social Studies
Teacher both are strong supporters
of the JA Business Challenge. Ac-
cording to Mrs. Grossen, “we both
try to instill the importance of a
good, basic understanding of busi-
ness and economic principles – es-
pecially considering the global
connectedness and competition
that exist in the 21st century. We
feel it is our job to help ‘build’ the
leaders of tomorrow by making
available to them programs such as
Junior Achievement and the Acu-
ity Business Challenge. The
Kohler students have always
shown a great deal of enthusiasm
for this particular challenge.”

Biotechnology and Molecular
Biology
College Prep Biology students
at Kohler High School have re-
cently completed the biotechnol-
ogy component of the biology
curriculum. Biotechnology is the
technology of using living things
to create useful products. Biotech-
nology has historically been used
in the making of bread, wine, soap,
the treatment of waste, and the pro-
duction of cheese. Selective
breeding of agricultural animals
and selective practices in crop
planting have occurred for hun-
dreds of years. Biotechnology has
changed due to the advancements
of technologies such as computers
and software in the 1970’s to in-
clude the development of human
insulin for the treatment of dia-
betes, human growth hormone for
children, and identification of spe-
cific genes responsible for genetic
disorders, and in some cases treat-
ment for those disorders.
College Prep Biology students
learn and then use the steps neces-
sary to move a gene from one or-
ganism to another. The process in-
volves the isolation of plasmid
DNA, using endonuclease restric-
tion enzymes to cut DNA at spe-
cific sites in the DNA sequence,
ligation of the plasmid fragments,
transformation of bacteria, prepa-
ration and casting of agarous gel,
electrophoresis of restriction en-
zyme digested DNA, staining,
viewing, and photographing the
gel, and learning the process by
which scientists determine DNA
fragment size. Ask any College
Prep Biology student for more in-
formation on this experiment.
They will be happy to share details
of their successful experience!
Students Sarah Conze, Tim Valicenti, Sydney Yang prepare DNA for elec-
trophoresis.
Blessed Trinity,
St. John parishes
to hold community
pizza party
Blessed Trinity Church in
Sheboygan Falls and St. John
Evangelist parish in Kohler will
hold a community pizza party on
Sunday, April 17, 11 a.m. to 3
p.m. at Falls Firehouse Pizza. A
percentage of the sales will ben-
efit a summer youth mission trip
to Greensboro, North Carolina in
July. Reservations are welcomed
and take outs are available.
The team traveling to Greens-
boro include Jacob Rogers and
Ryan Tengowski (St. John’s),
and Clayton Ottman, Baylor
Bachmann, Natasha Bilkey, and
Taylor Mehan (Blessed Trinity).

From Police Chief
Bill Rutten:
Soliciting without permits: The Village of
Kohler has been experiencing an increase in
door-to-door salespersons soliciting without first
obtaining permits. The fees for the permits are
nominal, but the important aspect is that the Vil-
lage is aware of exactly who is soliciting. Back-
ground checks can be run and only legitimate
organizations are allowed to solicit. If someone
is soliciting legally, they will not be upset if they
are asked to see their permit. If no permit has
been issued, please send them on their way and
contact the police department immediately. Non-
profit organizations and established local busi-
nesses (i.e. Sears, etc.) that may be going
door-to-door are exempt from the permits issued
by the Village.
Just a reminder: Drivers should be aware that
the warmer weather will allow more and more
bicycles and scooters to be out and about. Please
be aware of the children when driving through
the village. Bikes and scooters are allowed on
the sidewalks. Scooters are not allowed on the
streets. Also, the newer motorized scooters are
not allowed on the streets or sidewalks. Those
are allowed on private property only.

Board of Education Regular Meeting Minutes
February 14, 2011
By Phillip Samuels and
Katie Anderson
January and February have been
about launch off for the Kohler En-
gineering Club. Members worked
hard on constructing a full scale
model for the Project GRILL. We
began by using Auto CAD, a pro-
gram that helped us create a de-
tailed drawing of our grill. By
working with this program we
made our first mockup out of card-
board and wood. We were also ex-
cited to visit our sponsor
Johnsonville, who comes by
weekly to give us advice. We con-
tinue to meet with even more ex-
perts and learn so this year’s grill
can be even better than last year’s
bomber.
Working on the grill is not all the
club has accomplished. A broken
recliner chair with a built-in lift
seat and heating was donated to the
club. The remote connected to the
chair was broken, rendering the
chair useless. We decided to try to
give back to the community by re-
pairing the chair and donating it to
Meadow View Manor. We hope it
warms up Elaine Rautmann’s life
at the nursing home. Also a special
thanks to Pam Rickmerer, the em-
ployee that set up the delivery.

Music Notes
Kohler musicians perform, record at Disney studios
On Thursday, March 30, 121
students and chaperones will be
embarking on a Band and Choir
trip to Florida. The students were
selected and invited to perform at
Walt Disney World. In addition to
their two performances at Walt
Disney World, both the band and
choir students will have the oppor-
tunity to work in the Walt Disney
recording studios while using a
click track and wireless headset to
produce their very own version of
a Disney film. While in the stu-
dios, Disney music professionals
will teach the students important
performance concepts and skills,
and what it is like to work in the
music industry. Kohler students
will be working with composers,
arrangers, conductors and studio
musicians, each with Disney credit
to their name. In addition to the ed-
ucational opportunities provided
by Walt Disney World, the stu-
dents will also take a day trip to
Cape Canaveral and visit the
NASA Kennedy Space Center.
Half of the tour expense was
paid for and sponsored by the Per-
forming Arts Organization through
their annual dinner and auction.
On behalf of all the students and
chaperones, we appreciate all the
moral and financial support you
have given to the performing arts
students of Kohler. We know the
students are excited about per-
forming and recording in the Walt
Disney studios. Educational expe-
riences like this will truly provide
many memories that will last a
lifetime.

Yin Yoga Workshop w/ Pam
LaBouve
Yoga on the Lake

Yin yoga is a practice of long‐held,

that open and energize the “meridi‐
ans,” or energy pathways of the
body, restoring youthful joint mobil‐
ity as you quietly activate and
gather your chi, your prana–your
life force. The asanas combined
with deep, focused breathing en‐
courage you to tune in and listen to
your body and surrender to your
feelings rather than trying to push
them down or control them. Yin
enables you to heal yourself, move
negative emotions out, prevent
injury and find a deep sense of
peace in your body, mind and spirit.
Replenish, revive, balance and
restore – all levels welcome.
