Listening sessions
share budget
Approximately 65 community
members participated in three com-
munity listening sessions hosted by
Kohler Schools regarding its 2011-
2012 budget. Current challenges
facing the school in light of re-
duced revenue provided the oppor-
tunity for the school and
community members to think care-
fully about the future of Kohler
Schools, and what is desired from
and for the school.
The School Board reports that its
goal is to develop a balanced
budget which supports learning for
all students, and one which also in-
cludes investments in building the
schools needed for the future.
Each session was unique in
terms of the focus, feedback and
conversations. However, common
themes emerged from all three lis-
tening sessions:
= support for making 6th grade
part of the middle school model
= maintaining the music program
and using it as a means to attract
= recognizing the need to make
difficult choices to ensure a bal-
anced budget
= maximizing grade and section
enrollment through tight man-
agement of open enrollment re-
= expanding and increasing fees
such as parking and/or athletics
The Board also received feed-
back on investing in professional
learning for teachers, the use of up-
to-date technology to offer new
courses, and to invest in maintain-
ing a quality building. The Board
will consider the proposed 2011-
2012 school budget at the May and
June regular board meetings which
usually takes place on the second
Monday of the month.
The Village of Kohler had a bet-
ter than expected turnout of 59%

Delahunt also challenged in-
cumbent Angela Sutkiewicz in a
sometimes contentious race for
Sheboygan County Circuit Court
Judge, Branch 3. Sutkiewicz was
appointed to the position in July,
2010 by former Governor Jim
Doyle. In Kohler, Delahunt edged
past Sutkiewicz 443-408, but coun-
tywide totals had Sutkiewicz edg-
ing past Delahunt, 15,187-15,059.
There were 55 write-ins. Delahunt
requested a recount, but her num-
bers remained the same while
Sutkiewicz picked up nine votes.
For State Justice of the Supreme
Court, Kohler voters cast 589 votes

Challenge Day inspires school and community
day-long program promotes compassion and
For millions of young people in
America, bullying, violence, and
other forms of oppression are a
part of a typical day at school.
Many students are afraid to walk
down the halls for fear of being
teased or humiliated. In Kohler,
the Kind Matters effort was
launched to create schools and a
community that cares.
Imagine a school where every
child feels safe, loved, and cele-
brated. This is the vision behind
Challenge Day, an award-winning
day-long experiential program for
middle and high school students.
On April 5th and 6th the ac-
claimed day-long Challenge Day
program took place at for students
in grades 7 through 12. Approxi-
mately 200 students and 50 adults
experienced the innovative work-
shop, designed to break down bar-
riers and promote school and
community environments based
on understanding and acceptance.
At Challenge Day, teenage stu-
dents, teachers, school counselors,
parents, and members of the com-
munity were challenged to step out
of their comfort zones, open their
hearts, and build connections with
others. Two trained Challenge Day
Leaders guided participants
through a carefully-designed se-
ries of games, activities, and trust-
building exercises that break down
walls and create new levels of em-
pathy and respect.
Superintendent Marty Lex-
mond shared that, “seeing our stu-
dents, teachers, and community
members, dancing, galloping,
clapping, and laughing together is
inspirational. To experience the
outpouring of support as we
shared both the challenges and
joys of our lives is beyond words.
The tears and hugs following that
moment are minor in comparison
to the remaining connections and
Our next steps will include
meeting and planning with stu-
dents who volunteered to “Be the
Change”. The high school will
add an advisory period next year
to continue small group celebra-
tions and conversations. In these
meetings we will discuss our
shared challenges and also focus
on the shared joys and the pride
we take in our families and
friends. Together we will build and
share a vision of a caring school
and community.
Challenge Day was
formed as a 501(c)3 nonprofit or-
ganization in 2001. Today, its pro-
grams have reached hundreds of
thousands of young people across
North America and around the
The Challenge Day program
has received numerous awards
from the Juvenile Justice System,
the D.A.R.E. Officers Association,
government officials, and many
school districts and cities nation-
wide. Challenge Day has also been
featured in the New York Times
best-seller Chicken Soup for the
Teenage Soul, in the Emmy-win-
ning documentary Teen Files: Sur-
viving High School, and on The
Oprah Winfrey Show.
“Thank you for bringing Chal-
lenge Day to our school,” said one
Challenge Day teen participant. “It
has changed my life forever. It
hurt me to see how many people
have a problem in their lives, but
it is also comforting to know that
others are going through the same
thing I am. I feel this day has
changed the way I view others.”
One parent remarked, after receiv-
ing a thank you letter for being
part of the day, “I just received my
Challenge Day “thank you for par-
ticipating” letter in the mail. Ac-
tually, I’m the one who’s thankful

Gang graffiti
found on school
building, homes
Kohler residents awoke on Sun-
day, April 10 to find the school and
a couple of nearby homes defaced
with blue spray-painted gang sym-
bols and curse words. The symbols
were similar to those used by a street
gang called the Gangster Disciples,
whose origins go back to the 1960s
and the south side of Chicago.
A homeowner’s garage door next
to the school was also defaced, as
well as the back of a garage on the
corner of East Park Lane and School
Investigations have not turned up
a suspect yet, according to school of-

America welcomes

Community Cinema,
presented at the John

Center in partnership
with Independent Tele-
vision Service (ITVS),
invites all to a free
screening of Welcome
to Shelbyville, a rare,
inside look at America
at a crossroads Tuesday, May 3, at
12:30 and 7 p.m.
The film focuses on a small Ten-
nessee town in the heart of the
Bible Belt grappling with rapidly
changing demographics. Just a
stone’s throw away from Pulaski,
Tenn., (the birthplace of the Ku
Klux Klan), Shelbyville’s longtime
African American and white resi-
dents face the challenge of how
best to integrate with a burgeoning
Latino population and the more re-
cent arrival of hundreds of Somali
refugees of Muslim faith. Set on the
eve of the 2008 presidential elec-
tion, the film captures the search by
old and new residents for a way to
live together during a tumultuous,
history-changing year.
Each showing of the film will be
followed by a discussion of the is-
sues faced by Shelbyville’s resi-
The film’s director, Kim Snyder, di-
rected and produced the award-
winning documentary I Remember
Me (Best Documentary, Denver In-
ternational Film Festival, Honor-
able Mention Hamptons
International Film Festival, Audi-

Dear friends, family and those con-
nected by caring,
I have the honor this year of being
chosen to dance as a “celebrity”
dancer in the 2011 Movers &
Shakers Gala on Saturday, May
21st. It is an evening of dancing,
music and fund-raising that bene-
fits Lakeland College and the She-

The recipient charity receives 50%
of the proceeds of all votes cast;
the remaining 50% is shared by
Lakeland College and the Sheboy-

been nothing that has touched my
heart more this past year, however,
than the tragic, untimely death of
my dear friend’s son, Kyle Neurohr.
Kyle was killed in an auto accident
on October 16, 2010.
I would like to ask you to buy a
vote or votes for me in this worthy,

By Steve Steinhardt
July 18th, 2010, 3:34 p.m. –
Myself and a majority of Sheboy-
gan County are enjoying a beauti-
ful afternoon. However, over
Howards Grove a small storm de-
velops a funnel cloud that drops
from the sky as a group of people
are outside having a graduation
party. They watch the funnel touch
the ground now becoming a tor-
nado. They call 911 to report.
Dispatch relays the information
to the National Weather Service
(NWS). Three meteorologists have
a quick conference as they can see
a very small storm, only a mile or
2 in size, but they cannot pick up
any signs of rotation. Distance and
line-of-sight prevent the radar from
Sullivan and the radar from Green
Bay to pick up the tornado. Given
the information they have avail-
able, a tornado warning is issued at
If you have a NOAA weather
radio it is at this moment you know
of the tornado warning, exactly
where the tornado is, and where it
is heading.
Meanwhile, back at the Sheboy-
gan County Sheriff’s Department,
dispatch has not yet activated the
weather sirens. We will not activate
based on a citizen report without
confirmation from the NWS or a
trained spotter. If we did activate
based on citizen reports, the sirens
would be activated for most storms
that roll through the County and
eventually they would just be ig-
About the time the warning is
issued, the tornado is crossing I-43
and overturning a camper. Every-
one passing the incident on I-43 is
calling 911 to report the accident.
We only have 2 dispatchers on
duty and all of the 911 calls have
to be answered. Eventually a dis-
patcher is freed up to activate the
sirens. Approximately half of the
weather sirens in the county are ac-
tivated by a page, the remaining
sirens require a member of the
local fire department to run to the
station and start the siren manually.
The storm was well out over
Lake Michigan before a single
weather siren went off.
Nobody should be relying on
outdoor sirens as their primary
source of notification for a tornado.
This is a prime example of why
you should have a weather radio in
your house and at work.
Today we will be participating
in the Statewide drill. At 1:00, the
NWS will be issuing a mock tor-
nado watch for Sheboygan County.
At approximately 1:20, they will
be issuing a mock tornado warn-
ing. Follow your tornado sheltering
plan and when your Department
Head and/or Supervisor completes
their headcount and clears you, you
can return to work. I know this can
be an inconvenience, but I appre-
ciate your participation and leading
by example in the community.

Emergency Management of the

Keeping young professionals
in Sheboygan County
By Kevin Struck
UW-Extension Sheboygan County
A total of 629 young, single,
college-educated people moved
out of Sheboygan County during
the last half of the 1990s, accord-
ing to a 2003 report based on Cen-
sus 2000 data, the most recent
such report available. Popularly
characterized as a “brain drain,”
this loss is a critical one, says the
report, because young, single, col-
lege-educated people provide the
influx of highly skilled workers
that existing companies need to
stay strong and expand. The report
adds that, "The relative influence
of this small population is far
greater than its size would suggest.
. . . When the young people mov-
ing into an area are also college
educated, they provide a measure
of economic opportunity in the
area. . . .” (The Census report de-
fined “young” as ages 25 to 39.)
Numbers may tell part of a
story, but not all of it. What do
young, college-educated people
who have moved out of – or into –
Sheboygan County have to say
about their decisions? I asked a
number of young professionals for
their opinions.
One young, single woman from
a small Sheboygan area commu-
nity the size of Kohler, who took a
job on the East Coast following
graduation from college, ex-
plained that over half of her
friends had moved to Milwaukee
or Minneapolis for “Job opportu-
nities, school opportunities, and
social and cultural opportunities
that were not available in Sheboy-
gan County. They consider She-
boygan County a place where their
family is, but not a place of action
and events.”
A recently married, college-ed-
ucated individual in his late 20s,
who moved to Texas after gradu-
ating, said the main reason he left
the Sheboygan County area was
“There were more readily avail-
able jobs in my field in other parts
of the country. Other reasons for
the decision to move included the
variety of shopping, entertain-
ment, and restaurant choices avail-
able in larger metro areas
compared to Sheboygan County.”
When asked about his friends who
had also left the area, he added,
"Even though there is family,
friends, and familiarity with the
Sheboygan County area, those are
not strong enough reasons to lure
them back.”
A recent UW-Madison graduate
from Sheboygan County intended
to leave the area and “See the
world while I have the chance.”
However, when asked whether she
would consider moving back to
the area by age 30, she nodded and
said, “Yes, definitely.”
Improvements such as the John
Michael Kohler Art Center, the
Stefanie Weill Center, new restau-
rants, and new stores like Pier 1
Imports and Target at Deer Trace
made a difference in the relocation
decision of a young professional
from the West Coast I spoke with.
He saw a vitality in Sheboygan
that surprised him and was a deter-
mining factor in his decision to
take a job here instead of else-
To address the issue of attract-
ing and retaining young profes-
sionals, the Sheboygan County
Chamber of Commerce started
Coastal Connections in 2005. The
group has grown to over 100
members, and includes account-
ants, lawyers, dentists, and small
business owners, among others.
Building on this momentum,
the Sheboygan County Economic
Development Corporation held a
young professionals retreat earlier
this year. A total of 62 profession-
als ranging in age from 25-45 par-
ticipated. Some of the key themes
that came out of the group discus-
sion included:
• The need for career growth op-
• Challenges faced by newcomers
trying to “fit in” to the area
• A low awareness of the area’s
assets, even among existing resi-
• The need for quality downtown
rental housing and an accompany-
ing entertainment district and
events that would connect to the
lakefront, which is a great commu-
nity asset
It was even suggested that an
artificial reef be built in Lake
Michigan for better surfing! While
this suggestion might seem out of
the norm, it is these types of
unique amenities that make a place
interesting to young people.
Besides the lakefront, the group
listed other distinctive attributes of
Sheboygan County such as the
Kohler-owned golf courses, Road
America, local restaurants, the
many small events that take place
throughout the year, and the “Mid-
west friendly” attitude.
Recommendations from the
group focused on the need to cre-
ate a centralized hub for young
professionals, preferably one that
connected shops and entertain-
ment opportunities downtown
with the lakefront. Rental housing
was preferred (young people want
to “test” an area before they buy).
This centralized hub should be
connected to the Internet via WiFi
hotspots and serviced by transit
options connecting the hub with
UW-Sheboygan, Lakeland Col-
lege, and Lakeshore Technical
Of course, none of this happens
without economic development,
and that means satisfying jobs for
young professionals at growing
local companies or opportunities
to develop their own businesses.
Participants at the retreat identi-
fied a number of ways to encour-
age both of these options,
including 1) “seed” capital to help
support a business start-up, 2)
mentoring from economic devel-
opment professionals and success-
ful business leaders, 3) a research
& technology park or at least a
business incubator, 4) programs to
help existing companies better re-
late to the next generation of pro-
Most of the young professionals
attending the retreat were eager to
get involved trying to implement
some of the ideas brought forward
and wanted to see the momentum
from the event continue.
A young professional with a
master’s degree told me, “I took a
job here in 1999. If Sheboygan
had still been like what I hear it
was like in the 1980s, I would
have kept on looking somewhere
else.” She recently married and
bought a home within the county.
Perhaps, with the continued efforts
of the Chamber of Commerce and
the Economic Development Cor-
poration, along with local business
leaders, developers, and elected
officials, as well as the input of
young professionals already here,
Sheboygan County can slow the
“brain drain.”

animals, careers, hobbies, states
and more. The staff at Kacia is
trained in the product line and can

isting one. Bracelets can range in

‘76 Bombers bring home silver trophy
By Bruce Erickson
The Kohler High School team
would make it back to Madison in
1976. Once again, WIAA tourna-
ment rules were changed. After two
years of Class A and B divisions,
middle-sized high schools com-
plained that they were being neg-
lected, so three classes were
established in 1975 -- Class A, B,
and C.
The 1975-76 Bombers posted a
season record of 16 and 2. Their
two losses came to Class A school
Milwaukee Marshall and a late sea-
son loss to Oostburg, who went on
to become conference champions.
That year’s team was led by 6'11’
star center Jeff Wolf. Other starters
were Jim Reilly, Bob Weeden, Joe
Erickson, Rob Gier and Jack Ehren.
Other important members of the
team were Danny Miller, Dennis
Weeden, Scott Stillwell, Phil
Berger, Jeff Strenger, and Brian
Going down one of the hardest
tournament trails imaginable,
Kohler had a hard road to travel.
Kohler started with Oostburg (15-
3), then Cedar Grove (19-2), Sev-
astapol (19-3), Rio (21-0), Oakfield
20-2, North Crawford 23-1, and
Marathon 24-0. Kohler’s opponents
in the tournament had a combined
record of 141 victories and 11
losses. In their first game they faced
their old nemesis Oostburg. In Feb-
ruary that year Oostburg had upset
the Bombers 68-64. Kohler played
an outstanding defensive game
holding Oostburg to 17 points in the
first three quarters and won 55-38.
Jeff Wolf pulled down 19 rebounds.
Then it was on to the second round,
where they were matched up with
Cedar Grove. The game was close
through three quarters and Kohler
pulled away to win 82-64. Jeff Wolf
had 27 points and 23 rebounds. Jim
Reilly had 21 points and Joe Erick-
son added 16 with some hot corner
shooting. They would face Sev-
astapol in the regional finals and
play some their best basketball of
the year. Kohler got off to a first
quarter lead of 29-13 and were
never threatened. Bob Weeden
scored 12 points in the first quarter
with some beautiful fast break bas-
kets. Four players ended in double
figures -- Wolf 26, Ehren 20, Reilly
19, and Weeden 18.
Now it was on to the Sectionals
in West Bend, where Kohler would
play undefeated Rio in the first
game. Kohler played outstanding
defense and won 64-45. Jeff Wolf
was devastating as he blocked
shots, pulled down rebounds and
scored 21 points, Kohler went on to
face another tough team in Oakfield
the next night. Oakfield got off to a
good start and led 16 to 4. Then
some hot shooting by Jeff Wolf and
Joe Erickson with five baskets each
in the second quarter helped Kohler
pull ahead 39-37 at half time. Kolh-
ler outscored Oakfield 22 to 8 in the
third quarter to ice the victory. Wolf
had 23 and Erickson 20 for the
game. The celebration was on and
plans were made for the trip to
At State Kohler would play
North Crawford in the first game.
They were ranked number two in
the State behind Marathon. Kohler
had heard about their delay game,
but not until they played against it
did they find out how frustrating it
was. Kohler prided itself on its high
powered offense, but in the first half
it was a nightmare as North Craw-
ford pulled out in front and led 12-
5 at half-time. Kohler had only
eight shots from the field and made
two. As Jim Reilly commented after
the game, "Everytime you shot you
wondered if you would ever see the
ball again." Kohler changed tactics
in the second half and went into a
pressing defense to disrupt the
delay game. It worked and they
climbed back into the game. With
25 seconds to play, North Crawford
was up by a score of 27 the 26.
Kohler got the ball and called a
timeout in front of their bench.
Coach Erickson reached into his
play book and decided it would be
a good time for the “Ace.” North
Crawford was counting on Jeff
Wolf getting the ball for the last
shot, so a little deception would be
in order and this play was designed
just for that. Guard Jack Ehren re-
ceived a back screen and looped
around the defense and was wide
open. Jim Reilly made a perfect
pass and Jack Ehren made the per-
fect clutch shot to give Kohler the
lead. The Kohler fans were in a
frenzy. North Crawford advanced
the ball up the court, but turned it
over with seven seconds to go. On
the Kohler inbound Jeff Wolf was
fouled. He went to the line and
calmly dropped in both free throws
to ice the game making it 30 to 27.
Kohler was in the championship
game for the first time in school his-
Their next opponent was be
Marathon, who had a 49 game win-
ning streak and a record of 73 and 1
over three years. Marathon was in
the midst of an amazing run. They
were in the championship game in
1974, and won Class C in 1975.
Kohler was cold in this game, espe-
cially from the free throw line
where they made only 7 of 20 tries.
Kohler made a run at the Raiders in
the third quarter, when they nar-
rowed the gap to four points. That
was as close as they got and they
went down by a score of 76 to 59.
Not only was Marathon the cham-
pions in 1976, but would win it
again in 1977 for a threepeat.
Kohler would have to settle for the
trophy with the big silver ball in-
stead of the the gold one. The
school and community honored
them with a parade into town, a
huge pep rally, and a banquet at the
American Club.
The 1975-76 season had added
excitement as the school and com-
munity found itself in the midst of
their first experience with high
powered college basketball recruit-
ing. As the season progressed, more
and more interest in Jeff Wolf was
being shown by college coaches. In
fact, he was contacted by 80 schools
who were excited about his college
playing potential. Jeff was an ex-
ceptional talent. He was an excel-
lent ball handler, rebounder and
shooter. Recruiters began showing
up at school and for family visits.
Throughout the latter part of the
season the team played in front of
numerous scouts. Bobby Knight
visited the school, and Dean Smith
from North Carolina sent his assis-
tant coaches Don Guthridge and
Eddie Folger to Kohler numerous
The Badgers and Marquette
Warriors were in hot pursuit of
Wolf. Recent basketball hall of
fame inductee Tex Winter talked to
the team at a practice. Wolf's final
choices came down to Utah and
North Carolina. Wolf made his de-
cision in May after numerous col-
lege visits. He announced his
decision on Awards Night that he
would play at North Carolina.
Coach Dean Smith was there to
welcome his decision. Wolf played
four years for the Tar Heels.
Some have asked when the first
high school basketball game was
played in the first new high school
gym. The 1956-57 team played the
first part of their season in the recre-
ation hall, and played the first game
in the first new gym on January 7,
1957. The game was part of a week-
long celebration of the dedication of
the Kohler Memorial Theatre,
swimming pool, youth center and
gymnasium. Kohler played Nicolet
in the first game and won handily.
And finally, some interesting
history about the “Ace” play. Coach
Erickson learned the play from his
basketball coach at tiny Grand
Marais High School in the Upper
Peninsula of Michigan. The high
school had an enrollment of 35 stu-
dents. This out-of-bounds play was
always in his playbook during his
21 years of coaching basketball. Al-
though he had used it a few times
during his career, it seemed that fate
had a hand in his opportunity to call
this play in the last seconds of the
North Crawford game. This play
helped his team earn him his last
win as a high school coach. He re-
tired in 1976.

Initial Tea on Tuesdays Class to
Focus on Emerging Tea Culture
Sheboygan Falls, WI -- Varying
from the traditional Saturday
morning schedule, the Atrium
Team Room is moving upcoming
classes to Tuesday evenings. Tues-
day, May 10 marks the date for the
first class which is titled “The New
Tea Culture” and runs from 6:00-
7:00 p.m.
“We’ve gained a loyal following
for classes on Saturday mornings
but want to ensure all emphasis is
on class participants. Since the
store closes at 6:00 p.m. we’ll ded-
icate ourselves to making each
class an even greater experience.
This will also make it possible for
those who had weekend schedul-
ing conflicts to attend,” says
Kathryn Schwark, co-leader of tea
And what is tea culture you
might ask? Commonly it is defined
as the way tea is made and con-
sumed, by the way people interact
with tea, and by the aesthetics sur-
rounding tea drinking. That sums
up part of what this class will
cover. Other questions to be ad-
dressed: what is considered “good”
tea, differences of loose and bag
tea, how has production been af-
fected since the tsunami in Japan.
Essentially, all the hot topics of
today’s tea world will be touched
In addition to the ever-increas-
ing reports of tea’s health benefits,
nationally tea is emerging in a sig-
nificant way for other attributes
like slowing down, relaxing, and
sharing the experience. The new
tea culture is about warmth and
hospitality that have been passed
up in the rush to produce more and
acquire more.
Cost for the May 10 tea class is
$25 per person; reservations are re-
quired. Attendees will sample a
minimum of three teas along with
afternoon-style tea service of foods
to accompany them. Handouts and
recipes are also provided. Partici-
pants receive a discount on their
purchases in the tea room and en-
tire store the night of the class.
Tea artisans Martha Vande Leest
and Kathryn Schwark, trained by
STI, the leader in the tea industry,
will be instructors. Both have also
received enhanced training from
International Tea Specialists at the
World Tea Conference.
“The New Tea Culture” class
will be held Tuesday, May 10 start-
ing at 6:00 p.m. at the Atrium Tea
Room located in Richardson’s Fur-
niture Emporium at 202 Pine Street
in Sheboygan Falls. For more in-
formation or to reserve your spot,

From Police Chief
Bill Rutten:
EMS Week May 15
: The Kohler
Police Department is the Village of
Kohler’s First Responder Unit. The police
officers are either First Responders or
Emergency Medical Technicians. The
Kohler Police Department routinely re-
sponds to medical calls in the Village and
provides the first level of care until a para-
medic arrives. Officer Jeff Sass deployed
an Automatic External Defibrillation unit
to an adult male having a heart attack in
December which resulted in a complete re-
covery. This was one of 120 medical calls
that we responded to in 2010, not counting
accidents. The Kohler Police Department
takes this role very seriously and invests in
training and equipment to provide the best
First Responder services it can. I’m proud
of our officers and their commitment to
this service and I hope that you are too.
Bike Safety Day: The Kohler Police De-
partment in conjunction with the Village of
Kohler Recreation Department is again
sponsoring the Bike Safety Day on Satur-
day June 4
at 12:30 pm. The event is
being held at the Village Hall. Licenses are
required and are available for $2.50 for any
bikes with wheels larger than 16”. Anyone
that needs a license can download the bike
license form from ww.kohlerpolice.com
and have it filled out before you arrive.
There will be forms available the day of,
but it would make that portion go more
quickly. All participants will receive an in-
spection of their bike, a free helmet and a
bike accessory. We will also be supplying
free soda and chips after the day’s events.
Last year we had a good turn out with great
weather. We hope to see you again this
From Public Works
Bruce Neerhof:
Just a reminder that Larry’s Hauling has an
industrial site for yard waste only. It is lo-
cated in the Sheboygan Falls Industrial
Park at 111 Balsam Road. Dumpsters are
located between the Hagemeir Construc-
tion and New Dawn buildings. It will be
necessary to have the office open the
locked gate for you. Office hours are from
6:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Fri-
day. Residents may dump all materials
into the dumpsters. Please take any con-
tainers with you.
All Christmas wreaths should be removed
from the cemetery by May 13.
Yard waste is picked up on Tuesdays and
must be placed in solid containers. Brush
should be neatly piled in five foot lengths.
residents are allowed to rake their leaves in
the street during the designated fall leaf
collection program only.
Water bill higher than usual? Check all
faucets for leaks. Just a slow drip can
waste 15-29 gallons per day.
Put a drop of food coloring in the toilet
tank to see if it leaks into the bowl. Based
on experience, it is found that leaking toi-
lets are the reason for unusual water usage
90% of the time. If you believe this is the
cause you may contact our department and
our crew can detect leaks with a special lis-
tening device.
One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale”
sign shall be permitted on each lot or par-
cel. Signs located on public property will
be removed by the Public Works or Police
A reminder that building permits are re-
quired for new structures, additions, re-
modeling, accessory structures, pools,
plumbing, electrical, HVAC, siding, roof-
ing, fences, signs and driveways that en-
croach on right-of-way. Any questions
about building permits and/or permit fees
can be directed to Bruce Neerhof, Village
Building Inspector, at 459-6469, or the
Public Works Department at 459-3881.

Each student who purchases a
ticket for prom will receive two
complimentary tickets to be used
by their parents or other members
of their family to view the crown-
ing ceremony. Due to the neces-
sary restrictions on numbers in the
Waelderhaus balcony, we must ask
that parents honor this two ticket
limit so that we don’t jeopardize
our ability to use this beautiful
prom facility.
Parents may begin to enter and
proceed to the balcony 15 minutes
before crowning ceremony (9:15).
House lights will be brought up for
an intermission following the pres-
entation of the court and parents
will be invited down to the main
floor to take pictures. When the
house lights are dimmed, approxi-
mately 10 minutes after court pres-
entation, all parents will be asked
to exit.
Once students arrive at Prom,
they will not be allowed to leave
and return. If the dance area be-
comes warm, students may walk
outside but must remain in the su-
pervised flagstone area immedi-
ately fronting the entrance.
Students who are not attending

Members of the Kohler
High School Future Problem

ents to Green Lake April 14-

Chen, Charles Olmsted, and
Kendall Wolf. Individual
winners in scenario writing
were Lily Zehfus and

The Future Problem
Solvers Program is an inter-
national organization in
which students are presented
future scenes about various
potential problems. Team
members apply the FPS
process in order to create so-
lutions. Those teams with the
best solutions are then invited
to participate at the State
Bowl. Following the State
Bowl, those winners are then
invited to participate at the
International Conference.
This year the IC happens to
be held at La Crosse.
This year the Wisconsin
Chapter of FPS celebrated its
30th year as an organization.
Kohler High, under the lead-
ership of Joel Somerville, has
been a part of this program
for 27 years. Mr. Somerville
and scenario writing coach
Mike Dellger were honored at
the 2011 State Bowl by being
presented with the Marian Carr
Award. This award, named for a
woman who was instrumental in
helping to get FPS started in
Wisconsin, is awarded to those
individuals who have played a
significant role in Future Prob-
lem Solvers through their dedi-
cation, skill, and commitment to
the program. Although this will
be Mr. Somerville’s final year as
coach, the program will con-
tinue to be carried on at Kohler
for years to come.

Boar d of Educat i on Regul ar Meet i ng Mi nut es
Mar ch 11, 2011
To insure the best educational climate for our students, it is nec-
essary to have an orderly and educationally sound policy for
placement of students in elementary classrooms. We feel this
annual process of grouping should be completed with the follow-
ing goals in mind:
Each room should be grouped as heterogeneously as possible. If
possible, each group should contain an equal number of boys
and girls and should be balanced in regard to leadership, learning
ability, behavior and special problems.
If possible, students should be rotated from year-to-year to in-
sure a social mixing in each grade.
Those students who have been identified for the Children with
Disabilities Program will receive special consideration based on
their needs.
Parental input into the process should only be made when it is
felt that there is strong educational evidence that their child will
benefit by placement with a certain classroom teacher.
It is very important that rooms in the elementary grades be or-
ganized in the best groupings possible.
Procedures for requests are as follows:
Parents must submit their request that their daughter/son be
placed in a specific classroom in writing to the Elementary
Principal by May 1.
*The above date of May 1st will be extended until May
, 2011 to allow for time to consider new classroom
(Neither e-mails nor phone calls will be accepted; only
written requests will be considered.)
*Parents are not required to request for
combination/looping classrooms.
The Elementary Principal will consider the parent request and
may review all necessary data (test records, health records, be-
havioral records, teacher progress reports, etc.) as well as con-
sulting with the sending and/or receiving teachers. Parents will
be limited to two teacher requests per child’s JK-5th grade ca-
Students whose parents are making specific teacher requests
for the first time are given priority.
Requests may be denied if granting the request leads to unbal-
anced classes in areas of gifted and talented, special needs, gen-
der, etc.

Classroom lists cannot be considered permanently estab-
lished until the beginning of the new school year.
