Board approves preliminary
school budget – school tax levy
to decline slightly
On Monday, June 13, 2011 the
Kohler School Board approved a
preliminary 2011-2012 (FY12)
balanced budget in the amount of
$8,697,259. The final budget will
be approved by the Board at its an-
nual meeting in October. The pre-
liminary FY12 budget is
$2,021,202 or 18.86% less than
the FY11 adopted budget. This
preliminary budget includes a pro-
jected reduction in the school tax
levy of $157,688.
The change in the overall budget
is primarily due to three factors:
1) The completion of one-time
capital projects totaling
$1,616,000, which included the
roof replacement, Ebben Field ren-
ovations and replacing an anti-
quated phone system.
2) A 5.5% reduction in the per stu-
dent revenue limit, which amounts
to $308,422.
3) The elimination of the $217,000
structural deficit included in the
FY11 budget.
The FY12 budget was devel-
oped with an eye on the priorities
set by the Board and shaped
through community listening ses-
sions. The Kohler Schools FY12
budget is balanced and includes re-
ductions, as well as investments,
designed to prepare students with
21st century learning skills. The
budget maximizes revenue to sup-
port learning, while making reduc-
tions to address the changing fiscal
realities.
The reductions in revenue will
also have an impact on the staffing
plan for the coming school year.
The school district will have fewer
administrators, teachers, and other
support positions in FY12.
Food service is also undergoing
changes for the coming school
year. Currently, we offer one meal
price for all students. In FY12 the
lunch price will remain the same
for secondary students and adults,
but will be reduced to $2.95 for
students in elementary grades.
Our food service program will also
be providing meals for Christ
Child Academy. These changes
will allow our food service con-
tractor to provide more options
and increase lunch participation as
well.
Changes in the proposed budget
will include an increase in the ath-
letic and activity fees from $37 to
$41. All other fees will remain the
same. The budget includes a tran-
sition in the drama club funding,
moving it from district-underwrit-
ten to self sustaining, over a period
of four to five years.
The preliminary budget also
prepares Kohler Schools for what
lies beyond the horizon. The
budget includes an investment in
professional learning and develop-
ment for our teachers and staff. All
of this is necessary as we move to-
ward blended instructional models
and new courses with greater stu-
dent engagement in learning.
New courses being considered
or currently under development in-
clude: Applied Facility Mainte-
nance and Management, Applied
Social Science Research and Writ-
ing, Applied Scientific Research,
and Advanced Placement Human
Geography. New learning opportu-
nities will include the development
and implementation of a senior
year exit project and portfolio.
The FY12 budget also includes
$40,000 for new technology,
$30,000 for professional learning,
and $30,000 for long-term capital
improvements.
So what does all this mean to the
property tax payer? The good
news is that the Board will levy
less in property taxes to support
the schools compared to a year
earlier. However, because of sev-
eral adjustments, the reduction in
the levy is less than the $308,422
reduction in the revenue limit. The
two largest adjustments are: an in-
crease of $72,465 in payments for
the referendum debt issued in 2003
used to finance the building reno-
vation and expansion, and a de-
crease in state aid of $48,272.
Given the factors above, the
2010-2011 school tax levy of
$5,798,324 is projected to de-
crease to $5,640,636 for a reduc-
tion of $157,688 in the FY12
budget. Property tax payers should
keep in mind that the school tax
levy is only one element of how
tax bills are determined. For exam-
ple, the value of individual proper-
ties and all properties combined
also influence individual property
tax bills. Even though the Board is
decreasing the school tax levy,
changes in property values within
the community could cause prop-
erty tax bills to increase.
Overall, the preliminary budget
for the 2011-2012 school year
maintains a commitment to chil-
dren, while looking toward the fu-
ture. Appropriate reductions have
been made to adjust to challenging
fiscal times. The district will use
all available revenue to provide
our children with the type of edu-
cation the 21st century demands.

Arts Center
presents A
Rising Wind:
The Lady Elgin
Story
Sheboygan’s founder
among the souls lost
on ill-fated 1860s
steamship
The wreck of the steamship
Lady Elgin will be relived at the
John Michael Kohler Arts Center
in the riveting production A Rising
Wind: The Lady Elgin Story from
July 6-10. Step back in time and
journey through the ill-fated voy-
age with a German reporter, an
Irish patriot, a runaway slave, an
idealistic sailor and a young Mil-
waukee girl.
In 1860, Wisconsin, like the rest
of the nation, was in turmoil over
the issues of slavery and secession.
The state’s anti-slavery governor
even proposed leaving the Union.
Returning from an excursion to
hear presidential candidate
Stephen A. Douglas speak, many
members of Milwaukee's Irish
community were lost when the
Lady Elgin foundered. Also
among the souls lost was William
Farnsworth, the founder of She-
boygan.
Over 150 years ago, the ship-
wreck changed the cultural land-
scape of Milwaukee, and the
drama still resonates today.
Through a tapestry of characters,
humor and suspense, audience
members will revisit the night the
Lady Elgin never returned to shore
and hundreds of souls were lost.
As the shipwreck claiming the
most lives in the history of the
Great Lakes, this intriguing drama
is a vital part of Wisconsin’s his-
tory.
“The Lady Elgin disaster is a
great story. It brings together a
host of topics and themes that lead
to the heart of America's conflicts
in the mid-19th century, conflicts
which are still not fully resolved,”
said Edward Morgan, playwright.
“At the same time, the story can be
distilled to a battle of wills be-
tween two stubborn men, both act-
ing from a strong belief in their
country's promise.“
Written by John Kishline and
Edward Morgan and produced by
Theatre MXT, the performances
open the Summer Theatre season,
running July 6-9 at 7:30 p.m. and
July 10 at 2 p.m.
Summer Theatre guests may
come early to enjoy live music, a
cash bar and light refreshments an
hour prior to the show. Following
the opening night performance,
audience members will have the
opportunity to meet the artists in a
talk-back session.
Tickets are on sale now for A
Rising Wind: The Lady Elgin
Story. Call the Arts Center at (920)

for more information. The ART-
cafe in the Arts Center offers a spe-

Sheboygan County property
taxes due July 31
Residents encouraged to make payments
at one of eleven local banks
Laura Henning-Lorenz, She-
boygan County Treasurer is re-
minding Sheboygan County
residents who postponed the sec-
ond installment of their 2010 real
estate taxes that the balance is due
on or before July 31, 2011. Notices
were mailed on Friday, June 10th
and residents should expect to
have received their notice.
Lorenz said their office has
some very exciting news to share
with residents. “We have added
two banks, having four additional
bank branch locations for our resi-
dents to pay their second install-
ment taxes.” Those additions
include two branches with Associ-
ated Bank and two branches with
Oostburg State Bank. “Community
Bank and Trust assisted our office
last year during the second install-
ment tax collection season and all
seven of their bank branch loca-
tions will be assisting our office
again this year,”said Lorenz. In
total, there are 11 bank branches
throughout Sheboygan County that
will be able to process second in-
stallment property tax payments.
“Residents will find this option
very convenient in that they may
not have to travel as far to pay in
person, parking will be convenient,
there will be bank tellers at every
branch to handle the volume of
payments efficiently, and several
banks have Saturday hours,” said
Lorenz. Residents do not have to
have an account with the bank
branch where they pay their sec-
ond installment property taxes and
will receive a receipt immediately.

are as follows:

ond installment amount is not the

mainly due to residents who qual-
ify for the Lottery and Gaming

ing of mailed payments it is a good
idea to enclose the second install-
ment stub, along with the check,
and self-addressed stamped enve-
lope.

taxes or their eligibility for receiv-
ing the Lottery and Gaming Credit

Local Harvard Student Brings ACT
Prep to Sheboygan
As high school students around
the receive their score report from
the ACT, or worry about taking it
next season, one college student
has made it her mission to make
the process less stressful – and
more rewarding – for local high
school students.
For her second summer, Ashley
Schneider, a 2009 graduate of
Elkhart Lake high school and ris-
ing junior at Harvard College, is
working with Revolution Prep to
bring ACT courses to anyone who
would like to score higher on the
exam.
When she attended high school
three years ago, test prep was un-
heard of. “I was at a huge disad-
vantage and I didn’t even know it,”
she says, speaking about the in-
escapable culture of test prep she
found on the East Coast. “Because
I didn’t really know what to do and
had to pick up the strategies on my
own, the whole process was a lot
more difficult than it needed to
be.”
Now, Schneider is spending her
summer trying to change that for
Sheboygan County students. She
has already held a free workshop
and practice exam at North, during
which she offered strategies and
tips to over 40 students before the
ACT. She is continuing this by of-
fering another workshop on July
11th and exam July 13th in Kohler
high school.
The workshop is open for par-
ents and students to learn more
about the ACT and receive an ini-
tial ‘crash course’ in the strategies
that she will be teaching in the
summer class, and the exam is a
chance for students to take a prac-
tice exam under real ACT condi-
tions, as well as receive free score
consultation to discuss student’s
results and ways to improve. You
can contact Ashley at
Ashley_Schneider@ivyinsiders.co
m or by phone at (920)377-6352
for more information.
In addition to free workshops
and exams, she is offering a com-
prehensive three-week class. The
earliest starts June 27th with an-
other mid-July class beginning the
16th. Last year’s course was met
with success. The program helped
over 20 students improve their
composite ACT score by as many
as 7 points, as measured by the
practice exams taken during the
class. Average improvements were
not bad, though, with 4.6 more
points in English, 4.1 in math, 4 in
reading, and 3.1 in science.
While she was impressed by all
of the students she met, she “can
see why science likely had the
lowest improvement,” Schneider
admits. “Although 3 points isn’t
bad at all, I taught that subject last
so I think my students just didn’t
have enough time to practice the
strategies that I showed them.”
This year, with an integrated cur-
riculum and more experience, she
is confident that “we can do even
better!”
Also new this year is that the Ivy
Insiders program has teamed up
with Revolution Prep. In addition
to the extra resources and support,
they also offer an extensive schol-
arship program, giving out $1.6
million of need-based financial aid
to students taking their courses in
2009. This exemplifies Ashley’s
belief that the cost of the program
should not be a barrier to any stu-
dent or family. “I really want this
to be accessible to anyone,” she
stresses. “It’s a great program with
plenty of resources and opportuni-
ties that should be taken advantage
of.”
Her enthusiasm for the program
is understandable. Prepping for the
ACT can provide students the most
improvement on their college ad-
mission success in the least
amount of time. Students spend on
average over 8,000 hours in class,
working on homework, and partic-
ipating in extracurricular and other
application-building activities, but
most spend less than 15 prepping
for, and taking, the ACT. This
makes raising ACT scores rela-
tively much easier than increasing
GPA or committing to another
club.
“Since the ACT is a standard-
ized test,” Schneider says, “it gives
colleges a way to compare students
from different schools and back-
grounds, but it also means that it
tests the same subjects in the same
format every time the test is ad-
ministered. If students practice the
right things, and know what to ex-
pect, they can do a lot better.” She
stresses that he ACT does not test
intelligence, preparedness for col-
lege, aptitude, or anything like
that. “All it tests is how good you
are at taking the ACT.”
Ashley is committed to all of her
students’ success. There may be a
lot of unfair things about the col-
lege admissions process, but the
most unfortunate is perhaps the
fact that the playing field isn’t
level. “In other places, there’s an
inescapable culture of test prep
that leaves those kids, regardless of
their true merit, in a much better
position to get into the college of
their choice. I really want to
change that for kids around here. If
I can help just one student be ac-
cepted into his or her dream col-
lege, like I was, then my summer
will be complete.”
Ivy Insiders courses will be of-
fered in late June, July and August,
and private tutoring will be avail-
able throughout the summer. For
more information, email
Ashley_schneider@ivyinsiders.co

Two scholarships
awarded by Women

SportsLife Camps to
bring its “outrageous
fun” back to Kohler
SportsLife Camps, a week long
summer program that helps
churches develop children’s faith
through energetic sports and multi-

mer. Bethany Lutheran Church in
Kohler has again teamed up with
St. Paul Lutheran Church in She-
boygan Falls to bring you Sport-
sLife Camps for the third year. It
will take place July 25 - 28 from
5:30 – 8:30pm and is for children
entering 1st through 5th grade the

three hours packed full of “outra-
geous fun” and Bible-based learn-
ing through high-energy activities
and sports, singing, obstacle
courses, art, videos and more.

School by allowing each camper to
customize the camp experience by
choosing a preferred sport or art,
and developing real skills in those
chosen areas through innovative,
quality programming. The camp
brings its own equipment and pro-
fessional, devout staff. The staff
also works with local church vol-
unteers to reach out to campers
with faith-based messages.
The camp will again be held at
Bethany Lutheran Church located
at 222 Church Street in Kohler.
The cost of the camp is free.

Kohler WIAA State tournament roundup
Three Kohler sophomores made
their second trip to the WIAA
State Tennis Tournament in Madi-
son in June: No. 1 singles Tyler
Lewis fell ill during sectionals
forcing him to retire his match, but
his season record allowed him a
special qualifier for state. Also re-
ceiving special qualifiers were No.
1 doubles Kyle Struck & Tim Val-
icenti. The Blue Bombers received
a tough draw in the first round los-
ing to University School of Mil-
waukee. Coach Wendy Tauscheck
expects the three sophomores,
(who have competed against
mostly juniors and seniors the past
two seasons), to continue to im-
prove their record in their junior
and senior years. Photos and
video can be viewed at kohlervil-
lager.com.
State results:
No. 1 singles Tyler Lewis (15-4)
fell to senior Sam Walker Univer-
sity School of Milwaukee (22-8)
7-5, 6-2.
No. 1 doubles Kyle Struck & Tim
Valicenti (14-5) fell to junior To-
pher McGee and senior Andrew
Stewart, University School of Mil-
waukee (19-8) 7-6(4), 6-2.
Seven Kohler boys and one girl
qualified for the Division 3 WIAA
State Track & Field Meet in
LaCrosse in June. The boys 1,600
relay team came in fifteenth place
with a time of 3:41.68. Team mem-
bers include: Christian Ertel (Sr.),
Garrett Griswold (Jr.), Nick Tes-
mer (Sr.), Joe Pellowski (Fr.), Ryan
Zittel (Jr.), and Brett Mueller (Fr.)
The boys 3,200 relay team came in
12th with a time of 8:32.48. Team
members include: Joe Pellowski
(Fr.) and juniors Eric Mehoke,
Garrett Griswold, and Ryan Zittel.
For Girls Discus Throw, Kohler’s
Rachel Maggi (So.) took 16th
place with a throw of 86-06.
Kohler golf team wins
first state title
Kohler’s two girl
golfers, Jenna Peters
and Logan Willis, led
the Kohler High School
boys golf team to its
first Division 3 state
title at the WIAA State
Boys Golf Champi-
onships at University
Ridge in Madison in
June. With the temperature topping
at 95 degrees, the Blue
Bombers defeated Cuba
City by 13 strokes.
The Kohler boys golf
team has made three
trips to the state tourna-
ment in the last seven
years, taking second
and third place. Last
year, the team just
missed a trip to state by one stroke
at sectionals. Coach Dirk Willis
said the team began the season this
year with the expectation that they
would go to state and do well, and
worked hard to achieve that goal.
He said the win makes up for last
year’s heart-breaker, and the play-
ers were excited and happy, while
also learning a valuable lesson in
what hard work can achieve.
Peters, Willis named
Academic All-State
“The Golf Coaches Association
of Wisconsin (GCAW) is pleased to
announce that
Logan Willis
and Jenna Pe-
ters of Kohler
High School
are Academic
All-State hon-
orees for the
boys’ golf season that just con-
cluded. Students are nominated by
GCAW member coaches if they
meet the following criteria: 1) A cu-
mulative grade point average of at
least 3.5, 2) participation in at least
75% of their team’s varsity
matches, and 3) are at least a soph-
omore in high school. Logan and
Jenna are student-athletes who
serve as great examples to others,
proving that academic and athletic
successes are not mutually exclu-
sive.
The coaches association believes
it is noteworthy that 198 male
golfers from around the state have
been honored this year for main-
taining high academic standards in
the classroom while competing in
varsity golf. In fact, the average cu-
mulative GPA of this year’s 189
golfers is an exceptional 3.820.
The GCAW
was formed by
high school golf
coaches in 1986
to help build
Wisconsin’s rep-
utation for devel-
oping quality
junior players by promoting golf in
our schools and communities. Be-
sides honoring both boys and girls
who succeed as student athletes, the
association also selects an annual
All-State team for boys and girls
based on their playing ability.

From Police Chief
Bill Rutten:
Bike Safety Day: On June 4, 2011 the
Kohler Police Department held a bike safety
day in the parking lot adjacent to the Village
Hall buildings. We had approximately 50
participants this year with perfect weather.
Officer Matthew Hocevar and Administra-
tive Assistant Jodie Kuklinski did a good job
in preparing for the event this year. Harley
from Wolf’s Cycle was present and did a
safety inspection on each bicycle. Each at-
tendee received a new bicycle helmet and a
bike accessory along with a beverage and a
bag of chips. The bicycle helmets were gen-
erously donated by the Habush, Habush &
Rottier Foundation out of Milwaukee, who
also assisted with the fitting of the helmets.
The chips were donated by Frito Lay of
Oostburg and the soda was donated by Lake-
side Pepsi out of Sheboygan Falls. We all
look forward to doing it again next year. Pic-
tures of the event are posted on the Kohler
Police Department website at www.kohler-
police.com.
Intern: The Kohler Police Department has
a college intern again this year, Ashley Bo-
genschuetz, who is in her second year of
school at Lakeshore Technical College. Ash-
ley will be riding with the officers and assist-
ing the police department throughout the
summer. College interns that work for the
police department are unpaid and earn col-
lege credits based upon the number of hours
worked. You may have met her already, as
Ashley assisted at the Bike Safety Day and
will be working a total of 216 hours for the
department. Our interns get utilized for as
many special events as possible, including
the Bike Safety Day, 4
th
of July Fireworks,
Brat Trot and other special events. The more
that they can get involved in, the better their
understanding of what is expected from law
enforcement officers, especially in a smaller
department like Kohler’s.
Parking issues: This is just a reminder that
the Village has a 24 hour restriction on park-
ing of trailers, campers and RV’s on any Vil-
lage street for longer than a 24 hour period.
If an owner of an RV needs longer than that
for preparation for a trip, contact the police
department. The ordinance (11.20.030) was
enacted to limit the amount of boats and
other types of trailers on the streets for sev-
eral reasons, including esthetics.
From Public Works
Superintendent
Bruce Neerhof:
Please be aware of the weather when leaving
containers with grass in them out for pick up.
If it rains, the grass becomes very heavy to
lift. Please cover your containers or store
yard waste in a sheltered area. Containers
exceeding 50 lbs. will not be picked up.
WATER USAGE FOR SPRINKLERS:
The Village does not have separate meters to
hook up to for running sprinklers. From June
15 to September 15, water use above your
fourth quarter usage will not be charged
sewer rates.
NOXIOUS WEEDS/GRASS LENGTH:
According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is
the duty of every homeowner to destroy all
noxious weeds on their property before they
go to seed. Examples of noxious weeds are
Canadian thistle, English charlock, wild
mustard, creeping jenny, goatsbeard and cot-
ton-bearing trees.
Also, grass that exceeds (9) nine inches in
height is in violation of this ordinance. The
Village gives three days notice to the
homeowner to mow their grass. Otherwise,
the Village will do it at the expense of the
homeowner.
GARAGE SALE SIGNS: One temporary
“garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be
permitted on each lot or parcel. Signs lo-
cated on public property will be removed
by the Public Works or Police Department.
HOLIDAY TRASH COLLECTION
SCHEDULE: Due to the 4

Kohler Times deadline:
20th of every month
Throughout the month of May,
Kohler High School’s newly
formed club called Making a Dif-
ference (MAD) has been fund-rais-
ing in order to provide school
supplies for children living in
Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Ms.
Bratz, a former Kohler teacher,
visits to the area annually spending
time with the children and working
with an organization called So-
ciedad Amigos de los Niños. She
will be bringing all of the money
we have raised directly to Hon-
duras to purchase school supplies
for children who are in need. MAD
was formed with the intention to
bring about global awareness
through discussion. As we began
looking at the multitude of issues
surrounding our world today, edu-
cation stood out as not only a
major issue, but also as something
that we, as high school students,
could easily identify with. Through
babysitting and bake sales, we
have surpassed our goal of raising
$500 by raising a total of $562.42!
As a group of about 35 students,
MAD offers exciting possibilities
for Kohler High School as it pro-
vides students with an opportunity
to reach out beyond Kohler. We
thank everyone who has helped
and supported us to reach our goal.

KOHLER PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEWSLETTER
By Danielle Olejniczak,
NHS Adviser
Kohler High School's National
Honor Society (NHS) was hon-
ored to induct many new members
this year. NHS is a premier, na-
tional organization established to
recognize outstanding high school
students. More than just an honor
roll, NHS serves to honor those
