Kohler Boy Scout Troop 831 completes community service project
The Boy Scouts of Troop 831 in Kohler recently completed a community service project at Point Beach State Forest, just north of Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The Troop was there to enjoy a weekend camping trip when a park ranger asked if they might be interested to help prepare the park for the summer. “We weren’t planning a service project for the boys on this trip,” remarked Scoutmaster Steve Schneider. “However, the Boy Scout slogan is ‘Do a good turn daily’ and they were more than willing to lend a hand.” The Scouts and their adult leaders pitched in to clean and rake approximately 1.5 miles of bike trail in a wooded section of the park. All were rewarded with a delicious hot lunch provided by the grateful park staff. The Scouting program helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership abilities, and citizenship skills while having fun in the outdoors. To find out more about Cub Scouting or Boy Scouting or to inquire about membership, please contact Mike Baka at 920-452-2112.

Kohler Brownie Troop #8048 donates entire 2011 cookie-sale profits to childrens’ cancer research fund

The Future Home of Bullard Children’s Dentistry...Designed by Kids...For Kids!
By: Megan Conklin, student writer Renovation is underway for the new location of Bullard Children's Dentistry. I have a unique perspective on this project that I would like to share. My name is Megan Conklin and I am 14 years old. I am a member of the Building Advisory Board. The Building Advisory Board is a group of 10 local students ages 10-18. We have been meeting since November to discuss the new building: the exterior, the interior, the décor, EVERYTHING. This meeting of creative minds has brought new and sometimes a few crazy ideas for a unique building and business. This has been a neat experience for me and the rest of the board. We have helped with the architecture, interior design, writing and visual arts. This sounds like a lot of work, and it is. But we have fun, too. Our meetings have been filled with pizza and desserts. During our February meeting, we “graffiti-ed” the new building to kick off the renovation and left messages for the builders. There were even a few sledgehammers involved! Over spring break, the interior decorating sub-committee met to select furniture, and décor for the child and teen waiting areas. In April, the technology committee voted on the selection of games and entertainment (via e-mail, of course). After the final cement was poured in May, we invited the Board of Directors (made up of children aged 5-10) to join us and put their handprints into the sidewalk. We thought they should get to leave their mark, too, because they helped with decisions like carpet, paint colors for walls and toys for the waiting room. And if that wasn’t enough, the Bullards allowed us to create a huge Jackson Pollock-style action painting (outside, of course) which will proudly hang for all to see. Overall, it’s been a terrific learning experience. We believe that Bullard Children’s Dentistry and Sheboygan County together have a bright and exciting future. The future office is located across the street from the Sheboygan Marcus Cinema at 3304 Wilgus Ave. in Sheboygan and will be open for business in July. Members of the Building Advisory Board include: Meg Biznek (age 10), Hank Biznek (age 13), Aaron Cantleberry (student photographer, age 18), Megan Conklin (age 14), Sam Kohler (age 12), Abby Lee (age 15), Tyler Lewis (age 15), Alex Romanoski (age 17), Kendall Wolf (age 17), and Sydney Yang (student director, age 16). Junior Board Members include Sam Biznek (age 9), Bridget Bullard (age 9) and Eddie Bullard (age 7).

The 3rd grade Kohler Girl Scout Brownie Troop #8048 decided to donate their entire 2011 cookie-sale profits to a childrens' cancer research fund. The check for $624 was forwarded to the Uselding family, former Kohler residents, for them to direct to the charity of their choice. Troop co-advisor Lisa Morrissett said, "My co-advisor, Susan Senti, and I are so proud of the girls. It was their idea completely of what to do with the profits." Shawna Uselding sent a message back to the girls: "Your package was the highlight of my week! It felt so good to be able to post that donation to CureSearch, and every penny brings me hope that one day a cure will be found. I hope the girls understand what a great thing they did! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Cindy Bleuel

With a combined 107 years of service to Kohler Schools, Cindy Bleuel, Len Hucke, and Joel Somerville will retire at the end of the 2010-2011 school year. Cindy Bleuel joined Kohler Schools in 1972. She initially taught social studies, then mathematics. Bleuel, who expected much from her students, is known for spending many hours helping them achieve the level of expectation she had for them. Len Hucke joined Kohler Schools in 1974. Most recently he has taught the sixth grade. Hucke

is known for his creative and involved lessons, and for involving parents and classroom partners. Hucke coached girl’s basketball and boys football, and was also the district student detention facilitator. Joel Somerville started with Kohler Schools in 1980. He is retiring after 31 years of service in education. He coached Future Problem Solvers for 29 years and recently received the Marian Carr Award, along with fellow teacher Mike Dellger, for recognition of this effort.

Judge urges common sense at graduation time
Parents, commencement season is almost here. This annual rite of passage is one of the major events of the high school experience. I write to urge you to do whatever you can to make sure the memories your children take from graduation are all good. Please make sure your child's graduation is safe and at the same time, be sure that you obey the law as well. In the past, some parents have hosted graduation parties where alcohol has been provided to underage individuals. This is against the law. Police Departments throughout Sheboygan County enforce this law. Violating it may lead to fines of hundreds of dollars. The law in Wisconsin is clear: No one younger than 21 can legally consume alcoholic beverages without their parent or legal guardian being present. Further, adults may not purchase, pour or provide alcohol to underage persons, nor may they knowingly permit underage consumption or possession of alcohol in the home or any other property under their control. The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that if a person is injured as a result of conduct by an underage person who drank alcohol at a party hosted or known about by parents, the hosting parents may be held liable for the harm that results. For the safety of our children, as well as for your own protection, please follow the law. Do not permit any alcohol to be served or accessible to underage partiers on your property. In addition, please talk with your children about the dangers associated with underage drinking. Make sure your child understands Wisconsin's Zero Tolerance Law, which is vigorously enforced here in Sheboygan County. This law clearly states that an underage person cannot operate a motor vehicle with any amount of alcohol in the blood. If caught driving after consuming any alcohol whatsoever, the underage driver faces a minimum of several hundred dollars in fines and a mandatory suspension of their driving privilege. Penalties for driving while intoxicated are even higher. There are many options for fun, safe, alcohol-free activities. Information about these activities may be obtained from your student's high school office. Please consider the safety of your child and your child's friends this graduation season and set a proper example for them by obeying Wisconsin's drinking laws. Honorable Catherine Q.

Art Center announces summer theatre lineup
Now entering its 41st season, Summer Theatre at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center will present two captivating productions in July—A Rising Wind: The Lady Elgin Story and Ben Franklin: Unplugged. “Audiences can expect another summer season of high quality entertainment,” said Ann Brusky, Arts Center performing arts coordinator. “Each of these superb productions invites us to look back on historic events with a fresh perspective, something that marvelously ties in with the Arts Center’s upcoming exhibitions and programming theme of memory.” A Rising Wind: The Lady Elgin Story, playing July 6-9 at 7:30 p.m. and July 10 at 2 p.m., opens the Summer Theatre season. Produced and written by John Kishline and Edward Morgan, A Rising Wind: The Lady Elgin Story recounts a momentous shipwreck that changed the cultural landscape of the region. Five voices from the past shed light on the night the Lady Elgin never returned to shore, bringing alive the political and social turmoil in Wisconsin on the eve of the Civil War. A German reporter, an Irish patriot, a runaway slave, an idealistic sailor, and a young Milwaukee girl each tell their version of the event in a rich tapestry of character, humor and suspense. Humor of historic proportions will be offered up in the second Summer Theatre production, Ben Franklin: Unplugged, playing July 27–30 at 7:30 p.m. and July 31 at 2 p.m. Written and performed by Josh Kornbluth, in collaboration with director David Dower, this witty one-man show tracks Kornbluth’s pursuit of an American icon after he realizes his remarkable resemblance to Benjamin Franklin. As it moves from the halls of academia to richly comic interactions with Kornbluth’s mother, Bunny, and his Aunt Birdie, Ben Franklin: Unplugged weaves an engaging tale of foibles to be found both in our families and the man on the $100 bill. Tickets for Summer Theatre are now on sale. Call the Arts Center at (920) 458-6144 or visit www.jmkac.org for more information. The ARTcafe in the Arts Center offers a special dining menu before the evening shows. Call for reservations and menu information.

The Village of Kohler Centennial Committee is planning to publish a book to commemorate next year’s centennial of the Village of Kohler. They are asking young and old alike to be part of it by inviting people to tell true-life stories — personal reminiscences of life in Kohler; interesting descriptions of events, adventures, and family anecdotes; seasonal or holiday memories; memorable people who affected the lives of others; recollections of life “back when;” littleknown historical items; etc. They are especially seeking humorous anecdotes as they would like to help residents bring back the good times through true stories and vintage photographs. Any appropriate memory or photo is welcome. The editorial style will be relaxed and conversational with a first-person “I remember when” approach, so contributers are asked to write memories the way they would relate it to a friend. Stories should be kept to more than 500 words. For more information, see the “Village News” section on page 17 of this publication.

Soccer talent runs deep in Vroom family
Most everyone in the village is aware of Shawn Vroom, who was the first soccer player from Kohler High School to be awarded a NCAA Division I soccer scholarship. Shawn led the Blue Bombers to three conference championships, four regional championships and a WIAA state final appearance in his four years at Kohler. You may not know that soccer talent runs deep in the Vroom family as evidenced by Shawn's older brother Steffen. Steffen Vroom currently plays professional soccer in Australia for the Brisbane Wolves of the Brisbane Premier League, the second tier of professional soccer in Australia. He currently leads the league in scoring with eleven goals in ten games. Steffen played High School soccer at Libertyville (Illinois) High where he was a three year varsity starter. He was All Conference, All Area and an All State Honorable mention in high school. He received a soccer scholarship to DePaul University where he was a First Team All-Big East selection in 2009. Vroom played as an outside player his freshman and sophomore seasons before manning the forward line for DePaul. Along with his First Team All-Big East recognition, Vroom received 2nd Team All Great Lakes honors while leading DePaul in scoring his senior season in 2009. As a junior in 2008, Steffen contributed to DePaul’s NCAA National Tournament appearance with 4 goals, 2 assists and collected 2nd Team AllBig East and 3rd Team All-Great Lakes honors. “Steffen was in the Village last fall and I asked him to help out at soccer practice so I got to know him a little bit. Not only is he a very good player but he is a very nice guy.” said Kohler Soccer Coach Scott Feltner. “We've got several high school soccer alumni playing college ball right now, but to know there is a guy with roots in the village playing pro soccer is pretty cool.” Vroom has been getting attention from coaches in the A-League, the top tier of pro soccer in Australia. If he keeps on scoring goals it won't be long before he will be plying his trade in the top league.

1980 Blue Bombers Bring Home The Gold
By Bruce Erickson Coach Dan Buhr was highly anticipating the 1979-80 basketball season. He would have most of his players back from the previous year who missed going to State in a one point loss in the sectional finals. That year Kohler was improving every game and made an outstanding tournament run. In the first game in sectionals at West Bend they would pull off one of the biggest upsets in Kohler tournament history. Their opponent was Pardeeville that was ranked number one in the State in Class C and sported a record of 22-0. They were led by 6-6 center Mark Bortz who a few years later would be playing in the 1985 Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears. Other starters were 6-5, 6-2- and 6-2 and were complimented by a fine shooting guard in Hammond. Kohler was not given much of a chance but Dwight Pelkin of the Sheboygan Press described it this way- “Kohler won in might be described as one of the finest prep games of the season. They won it in a hairy and convincing fashion. It was hairy because it was a point swapper all the way- but it was convincing in that in the final minute or so when it got down to the nitty gritty, the Bombers showed their stuff in refusing to panic and played with authority to actually wind up a solid 64-59 victor.” They would play Palmyra the next night for the right to go to Madison. They fell in a heart breaker 48-47. Mark Strenger was the only starter being lost to graduation. Coach Buhr was excited as his team coming back had an outstanding point guard in 5-11 Doug Bocchini and a sharpshooter from the outside in 6-0 Paul Prange. The front line was impressive with 6-4 Jim Wolf, 6-3 Curt Scheppmann,and 6-3 Tim Collins set to control the boards and give them excellent inside shooting. First off the bench was promising freshman 6-6 Joe Wolf. Other team members were Dan Biwan, Tim Mauer, Mike Gier, Artie Perry, Jeff Molenda, and Jim Strenger. Kohler started the season a little shakey dropping two of its first four games. They would finish the season sharing the conference championship with Howards Grove each with a 13-1 record After their early season losses Kohler would reel off 22 wins in a row. The team was getting better with every game and freshman Joe Wolf was getting more and more playing time and showed signs of the super player that he would become. Kohler had three hard tests before they could get to Madison in 1980. A rematch with arch-rival Howards Grove, a surprising game from Oostburg and another show down with Pardeeville. Kohler started tounnament play with a game at home against Cedar Grove and won 63-51. They would next face Howards Grove who had split with the Bombers during the year. That was their only loss as they came into the tournament with a record of 171. Before a packed house in the Kohler gym the home team put on a defensive show as they buried the Tigers 53-38. Next it was on to Howards Grove to face Oostburg in the regional opener. Kohler had overwhelmed Oostburg in the last game of the sea-

1980 Blue Bombers

son by 41 points. Oostburg Coach John Moriarity made a decision- if he could not keep up with the Bombers in a normal way he would have his team play a delay game. Oostburg started the game with a planned tip off play that almost worked but the Oostburg player missed the lay-up. Kohler managed 6 points in the first quarter and led 6-0. Oostburg held the ball for the entire 2nd quarter and took a shot at the buzzer that missed. Kohler stayed in its zone defense. Oostburg got the 2nd half tip and again held the ball for five more minutes. Although the Kohler fans were restless the team kept its cool. Doug Bocchini stole the ball near the end of the third quarter and scored on a layup to make the score 8-0. Oostburg did not have a point after three quarters. In the fourth quarter Oostburg decided it was time to play regular baskeball and did get the game to 18-12 but their game plan did not work as Kohler won the game 23-13. The Bombers made 8 out of 9 field goal attempts for the game. The next night they would face Gibralter and won easily 66-47 to move on to the West Bend sectionals. The first game at West Bend was against Pardeeville who had posted a season record of 20-2. They lost the the tall Bortz brothers from a year before but had outstanding guard Hammond returning. He had blistered Kohler with 28 points the year before and that was his average for the 79-80 season. In this game the job of guarding Hammond was given to Doug Bocchini who did a masterful job. Hammond did end up with 21 points but he had to earn every one of them. Meanwhile Kohler was hitting on all cylinders- Curt Scheppmann had 18 points and 13 rebounds, Joe Wolf 18 points and 7 boards, Paul Prange was hitting from long range and added 18 points and Jim Wolf scored

14. Kohler won by a score of 72-60. The sectional championship game against Waterloo was not close as Kohler won 70-51 to get them to State. Paul Prange led the team with 22 points. First up in Madison would be the Altoona Railroaders who were coming in with a 19-4 record. This was their first trip to State in 27 years. Kohler got off to a slow and shaky start in the game with nine turnovers in the first quarter- tournament jitters maybe. They did settle down after being behind 20-18 at the end of the first quarter. Altoona went up 30 to 22 before the Bombers went to work and took the lead 40-37 at halftime. Kohler pulled away in the second half and won the game 73-60. Joe Wolf had 16 points and 12 rebounds, Jim Wolf had 19 points, Curt Scheppmann 16 and Paul Prange 18. Doug Bocchini had another stellar floor game. Kohler would play Edgar for the championship. Edger had not been in the state tournament for 43 years but had a team that posted a record of 24-1 and had won a state football championship the previous fall. They were led by 6-7 center

First place trophy for 1980.

Larry Brown and had a tough pressing defense. After an even first quarter in which Kohler held a 19-17 lead the Bombers would slowly pull away during the rest of the game. They were up 57-38 with six minutes to go when Edgar made a 16-3 run to make the score 62-56 with 1:28 left. But Paul Prange knocked in a fifteen footer and Jim Wolf added two free throws to put the game away. The Kohler fans and team went berserk as the final seconds ticked down and the Blue Bombers were about to earn the first s state basketball championship in the history of Kohler High School.

Jim Wolf had 23 points, Paul Prange 20 and Joe Wolf 12. Jim Wolf would be named to the all tourney team and was the top scorer in Class C with 42 points. The gold trophy was awarded right after the game and the celebration was on. A victory celebration was held for the team and fans at the Mapledale Country Club in Madison after the game. Three senior players addressed the crowd- Tim Collins mentioned “class.” Curt Scheppmann said he would like to see the winning streak hit 70 and Doug Boccinni talked about “teamwork.” On Sunday the team was met near Plymouth by a caravan of 80-100 cars and a Kohler fire truck. They made their way through the village to cheering crowds and ended in a huge pep rally in the gym. Village President Wes Prange spoke for the community and lauded the team and fans for their fine example shown during the exciting days in Madison. “THOSE WERE THE DAYS MY FRIENDS- WE THOUGHT THEY WOULD NEVER END.” Next we will look at the year of double gold1982.

Habush Habush & Rottier continues statewide helmet-fitting tour at Kohler Bicycle Safety Day
Helmet fitting specialists from Habush Habush & Rottier to offer free bike helmets and fittings to 75 local children
Kohler, Wis. – June 4, 2011 – The Habush Habush & Rottier Charitable Foundation will continue its statewide tour to provide and fit children with free bike helmets at the Kohler Bicycle Safety Day. Seventy-five local children will receive a free, specially-fit helmet on a first-come, first-served basis from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 at the Kohler Police Department, located at 319 Highland Dr. in Kohler. Thirty-nine Habush Habush & Rottier employees have been trained by Safe Kids USA, an organization dedicated to preventing accidental childhood injury, to offer specialized fitting services along with their annual bike helmet donations. Since 1999, the Habush firm’s charitable funds have distributed more than 81,500 bicycle helmets to children throughout the State of Wisconsin and plan to donate an additional 10,000 this summer. Researchers have found that wearing a helmet can reduce the severity of brain injury by as much as 88%. Most of the helmets are distributed at bike safety rodeos and summer safety programs run by police departments and community organizations throughout Wisconsin. In addition, many police officers around the state distribute bicycle helmets to neighborhood children while on patrol, helping to promote positive, open relationships between local authorities and youth. The Habush Habush & Rottier Charitable Foundation was established in 1999 to allow the law firm to give back to the communities in which its attorneys practice. The Habush Habush & Rottier law firm has been a Wisconsin personal injury law firm for over 75 years. Thirteen offices are located throughout the State of Wisconsin and are located in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Madison, Appleton, Green Bay, Racine, Kenosha, Lake Geneva, Wausau, Rhinelander, Sheboygan, West Bend and Stevens Point.

Share your memories of Kohler Village Nothing brings a smile to your face — and your heart — like a good memory. That’s why we’re publishing a book to commemorate the centennial of the Village of Kohler. We’d love everyone — young and old — to be part of it. We’re inviting people to tell true-life stories — personal reminiscences of life in Kohler; interesting descriptions of events, adventures, and family anecdotes; seasonal or holiday memories; memorable people who affected the lives of others; recollections of life “back when”; little-known historical items; etc. We’re especially glad to get humorous anecdotes. We’d like to help residents bring back the good times through true stories and vintage photographs. Any appropriate memory or photo is welcome. The editorial style will be relaxed and conversational with a firstperson “I remember when” approach, so please write your memory the way you’d relate it to a friend. Because we would like to include as many memories as possible in the book, please keep longer stories to no more than 500 words. If you would like us to consider your story, short memory, photos, illustrations, or other miscellaneous materials, please read the complete list of Contributor’s Guidelines. To be considered, email your submission to: angie@horizondesign.biz Or mail your submission to: Angie Packer 517 Audubon Road Kohler, WI 53044 Contributor’s Guidelines By submitting material for publication, you grant the Village of Kohler unrestricted use of the material, including your name and current city/state. We reserve the right to modify, reproduce, and distribute the material in any medium and in any manner. We may contact you via phone or email regarding your submission. Be sure your submission contains your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address, if available. Don’t forget to include the year (can be approximate) in which your memory took place. In an effort to involve as many contributors as possible in this “reader-written” book, we may edit or excerpt longer stories to fit within our publication’s constraints. We prefer using high-resolution (300dpi) scans sent via email. If sending photos, please make sure your name and address appear on the back of each photo, and identify any information you know regarding who, what, where, and when. You’re welcome to send a photocopy of an original photo (for reference only, since photocopies cannot be reproduced in the actual publication). Or, we suggest that you first have a reprint made of cherished family photos before sending them. If we use the memory, we may ask to borrow the original or a sharp reprint. Photos are returned upon publication. If you’re sending photos you’d like to have returned, be sure to enclose a self-addressed return envelope with the proper return postage.

From Clerk/ Treasurer Laurie Lindow:
Open Book and Board of Review The Village Assessor will be holding Open Book session at the Village Hall on Monday, June 13th. To schedule an appointment with the assessor, please call Associated Appraisal at 920-749-1995. Open Book is an opportunity for property owners to meet with the assessor and examine the records for their property and discuss how the assessment was made. Time spent discussing your assessment with the assessor may eliminate the need for a formal appeal to the Board of Review. At open book, the assessor is allowed to make any changes that are necessary to perfect the assessment roll. The Village of Kohler Board of Review will meet Tuesday, June 28th beginning at 5:00 p.m. Property owners that want to appear before the Board of Review to appeal their assessment must provide the clerktreasurer with written or oral notice of your intent to file an objection at least 48 hours before the meeting of the Board. Also, a written and signed Form of Objection to Property Assessment must be filled out and filed with the clerk within the first 2 hours of the Board’s first scheduled meeting. E-mail addresses The Village of Kohler wants your e-mail address. We started collecting e-mail addresses to send out notices for our Recreation Department. Along with Recreation Department information we will be sending out e-mails regarding changes in garbage collection dates, reminders, etc. If you would like to be included in this information please send an e-mail to the Village Office to cgamb@kohlervillage.org. Village Directory The Kohler Civic Club has completed the 2011 Village of Kohler directory. Volunteers will be delivering the directories to all homes in the Village. If you do not receive one or would like additional ones, directories are available at Village Hall.

From Public Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof:
Just a reminder that Larry’s Hauling has an industrial site for yard waste only. It is located in the Sheboygan Falls Industrial Park at 113 Balsam Road. Dumpsters are located between the Hagemeir Construction and New Dawn buildings. Residents may dump all materials into the dumpsters. Please take any containers with you. BE LEAK SEEKER: 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 toilets are the reason for unusual water usage 90% of the time. GARAGE SALE SIGNS One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be permitted on each lot or parcel. Signs located on public property will be removed by the Public Works Department or Police Department. REPORTING OF ILLICIT DISCHARGE: It is a requirement in the Village of Kohler Storm water permit with the to educate the Public on illicit discharges to the storm water system. An illicit discharge would be the dumping of any chemical, pet waste, or hazardous substance into the street or a storm basin inlet. The substance would eventually make its way into the Sheboygan River causing a pollution hazard. To report an illicit discharge, please call the Public Works office at 459-3881.

Benefits of Aquatics
Each summer, parks and recreation professionals unlock the gates to community pools, hiring lifeguards and preparing programs. Running aquatic facilities can be hard work, but for residents, summer, especially, marks the beginning of warm days relaxing on the pool deck, pool parties, and swim teams. What is the appeal of these crystal clear waters? Research indicates that there is more participation in aquatic based recreation and sport than any other activity. Why? What does an aquatic facility really mean to a community? In essence, what are the benefits? Physical Benefits = Improves posture, flexibility, muscular endurance, strength and balance. = Stimulates circulation. = Creates muscle tone.

Why are there so many runners on the road when there’s a perfectly good sidewalk?
By guest writer Kate Marventano Let’s get something straight: I do not enjoy running. I am not one of those cute women you see running around Kohler wearing a great matching outfit and running lightly. No – I’m the one out there lumbering slowly down your street, dressed in all black (hoping to cover any jiggle factor…), looking as though I’m being tortured. They keep telling me that running is easy because it’s convenient. All I need are sneakers. And they keep telling me that eventually I’ll grow to love it. I’m not sure when that moment will strike, but I keep hoping for it. Running in Wisconsin is not as easy as we’d like to believe – snow, ice, rain, wind and the resulting potholes and upheavals of sidewalk and road are all impediments to running in our fair state. Why would I run if I don’t enjoy it, and the Wisconsin weather beckons me to the couch with a bowl of popcorn? Despite the fact that I don’t like it, it’s become something of a meditation time for me. I need it. Not a single run happens without my feeling a sense of dread at the start. But at the end, I can’t believe I made it. I can’t believe I survived. Out on my runs, I listen to music because I need something to cover the sound of my chokes and gasps for breath. I’m also looking around, taking in the birds, the beautiful swaying trees, and the fabulous yards and gardens that my neighbors keep in our lovely little village. I’m thinking it all through. My hobby (aside from running in misery) is overthinking everything. I need that time to work out problems in my mind. I need it to set my goals, to list my upcoming projects. I need it to feel as though I’m contributing to my overall health and resulting happiness. I thought of this article because I’ve noticed more and more runners out there as the weather gets better. When a car drives past me on the road, I can always identify a fellow runner – they give me a wide berth in which to safely run. And in turn, I try to do the same for them when I’m in my car. Runners choose to run on the road rather than the sidewalk for myriad reasons. Here are four of mine: 1. Asphalt road is actually softer than concrete sidewalks. The difference may seem negligible, but my screaming knees and back can certainly feel it in the long run. 2. For those of us that are coordination-challenged, the sidewalk provides 100x the opportunity to trip and fall. Sidewalks have a crack approximately every three feet. They have dips and slopes and curbs. I don’t know about other runners, but after a few miles, lifting my foot even a bit further to run up onto the curb seems like a treacherous undertaking. Getting lost in thought is easy to do while running. Noticing every crack and upheaval isn’t. 3. For tracking reasons, I prefer to stick to the road rather than a trail. I use a GPS to figure out how far I’ve gone. I start checking that GPS pretty consistently around mile five when I’m getting rather tired. If the GPS fails, I track my mileage in my car. Actually, I track my mileage in my car every single time I run because I’m so amazed that I made it that far. Tempting as it is, I can’t go off road to check my mileage when I use a trail. 4. This spring several of our sidewalks and trails have been washed out as a result of our lovely weather. Running is hard enough without having to navigate around an impromptu pond. I’m guessing we’ll be getting more runners out on the road as summer rolls around. Please consider giving us room on the road. We’re grateful for it, and we appreciate every foot of space you can grant us. A 3,000 pound vehicle moving towards us even as slow as 35 mph is pretty scary to an exhausted runner. Thanks for keeping an eye out for us. Wave hi to me when you see me out there. You’ll know which one I am right away – I’m wearing all black and looking unhappy. But I’m actually celebrating life, health, and I’m thankful I have such a safe village in which to run.

Kohler Friends Meet-and-Greet Park Schedule
By Kate Marventano

How does the summer slip away so fast? I always intend to plan great activities and then the days seem to get away from me…or I end up taking my kids to the same places over and over again! Here’s an easy way to meet other people from Kohler and experience more of the area! This summer we’re going to try a different park every Wednesday – we’re looking for friends and neighbors to come join us and help make the experience fun! We’ll be at most of the parks anywhere between 12 – 3 and bringing a picnic lunch. Come to one, some, or all of the park dates – there’s no obligation or commitment. (I’m sure we’ll be missing some of the dates!) We won’t be meeting in the event of rain. Most of the parks have a bathroom available. Hope you can join us! Date Wed. June 15 Wed. June 22 Wed.

Recent milestones at Kohler Co.

Kohler associate celebrates 50-year service anniversary
Sheboygan County native Gordy Horneck is 75th associate to accomplish this milestone
KOHLER, Wis. – May 25, 2011 – Gordy Horneck, maintenance foreman in the Wisconsin Pottery, expressed that after 50 years at Kohler Co. he is retiring with “a sweet taste in his mouth.” He spoke these words at a special ceremony, on Wednesday, April 20, at the Kohler Design Center, in honor of this rare milestone. Attendees included Horneck’s family, current and retired colleagues, and members of the Kohler family. Horneck started his Kohler career in 1961 on the Kohler Farms, where he had worked since he was 16. After spending a short time in the metal pattern shop, he participated in a management training program, which led him to leadership roles in the maintenance division. Starting in 1983, he spent his final 28 years in the Wisconsin Pottery, a place he calls “home.” Horneck joined just 74 other Kohler associates who have reached their 50th service anniversaries, but longevity at a company isn’t new to the Horneck family. Between his father, brother, son and himself, the Horneck family has dedicated more than 150 years to Kohler Co. Horneck retired shortly after his anniversary date, April 20. He plans to spend his retirement years fishing, hunting and spending time with his wife, Sandy, three adult children and grandson.

National History Day a Success!!
Submitted by Heather Reader-Schubert This year was yet another successful year at the National History Day (NHD) competitions. More than 8500 Wisconsin students participated in NHD this year. The Northeastern Wisconsin regional event was held on April 9th at UW-Green Bay. All of the Kohler 8th grade students participated as part of Mrs. LaBudde’s social studies class. For NHD students create a history project around a theme. This year’s theme was “Debate & Diplomacy: Successes, Failures, Consequences”. Altogether 11 students moved on to the state competition. Also, one group performance done by Megan Conklin, Katie Lindow, and John Tengowski won the Labor History Award, along with a $50 cash prize. Their performance was entitled “Pickets, Potties, and Possibilities: The Kohler Strike of 1954”. The following students moved on to the state competition: = Andrew Bryce—Individual documentary—“The Panama Canal: Building Success” = Marisa Adams—Individual exhibit—“Sight in Black and White: Integration of American Schools” = Katie Ruelle—Individual exhibit—“The Road to Greatness: The Good Roads Movement” = Carson Schneider—Individual exhibit—“The Stamp Act of 1765: The Price to Pay for Unity” = Megan Conklin, Katie Lindow, John Tengowski—Group performance—“Pickets, Potties, and Possibilities: The Kohler Strike of 1954” = Elizabeth Weber, Mara Todd—Group performance—“Men Use Brains, Women Wear Chains” = Sarah Sutherland—Individual website—“There’s More Than Meets the Eye: The Walleye War” = Hank Biznek—Individual website—“The Cuban Missile Crisis: The Cold War Heats Up” The National History Day state competition was held on Saturday, May 7th.

Launching June 1, Complete Harmony incorporates the latest in therapeutic
Pioneering experiential water experiences, Kohler Waters Spa again leads the way in capturing the relaxation and detoxifying benefits of water with its newest experience, Complete Harmony, available June 1 in Kohler.

Once the guest is in the ultimate state of relaxation, the experience moves to the Harmony Room where a detoxifying body exfoliation is performed under the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower, providing a continuous showering of warm water in varying sequences. The Vichy Shower body scrub includes several Olavie Chardonnay products with a leave-in hair and scalp treatment. This hydrotherapy treatment culminates with a KOHLER signature bathing service in the Teafor-Two® bath by Kohler, complete with Olavie and Kerstin Florian products, which have restorative benefits to the entire body.

Kohler Co. Unveils Blackwolf Run River and Meadow Valleys Courses After Major Maintenance Project
Pete Dye’s first Kohler masterpiece restored to showcase original characteristics of the course
Kohler Co. is proud to unveil the Blackwolf Run River and Meadow Valleys courses after completing a major maintenance project to all 36 holes. The twoyear undertaking resulted in new grasses on greens, tees, fairways and selected rough areas, as well as extending the yardage of the courses, all aimed to bring back some of the original playing characteristics that Pete Dye intended when Blackwolf Run was first built more than 20 years ago. One of Pete Dye’s crowning achievements, Blackwolf Run opened for play in June 1988 and was named that year’s “Best New Public Course” by Golf Digest. It has continued to accumulate awards and honors including regularly being ranked on the list of “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” by Golf Digest and the “Top 100 You Can Play” by GOLF Magazine. “The new black tees, as well as the new length of the other five sets of tees gives the River course a fresh feel for golfers who have played it in the past,” comments Jim Richerson, General Manager & Group Director of Kohler Golf. “The improved playing surfaces will provide major championshipcaliber conditions for our everyday amateurs, as well as provide a stiff challenge for the best professionals at the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open.” This is the first time since 2008 that both courses are open for play. The 2010 season showcased the Original Championship Course, the same course that will be played during the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open, July 2-8. The maintenance initiative was supervised by Pete Dye and managed by the Kohler golf maintenance team, headed by Jim Richerson and Michael Lee, Manager of Grounds Maintenance for Kohler Co. Specific improvements include: Greens and Fairways Replaced a mixture of grass types with a single improved variety of the overall course yardage by 400 yards on the River course and 200 yards on the Meadow Valleys course. Created five distinctive teeing options on each hole for golfers to choose from. Roughs Rough grass was replaced in selected areas around the putting greens to improve chip shots. The turf is more uniform and dense allowing more accurate chip shots. Bunkers The Bunker margins were reestablished to their original shape. In addition, the sand and drainage was replaced to provide a more uniform sand shot and will play dryer immediately after rain events. Practice area The practice area was expanded and the turf on the primary practice tee replaced, offering golfers more options to practice chipping and a higher quality of turf to practice on.

Creeping Bentgrass. This improved variety is hardy in Wisconsin winters, allowing significant improvement in spring and late fall playing conditions. The new grass variety has a deeper, more vigorous root system so it requires less water, which provides golfers with faster and firmer fairways and putting surfaces. The fairways and putting surfaces are also consider-

ably more uniform because of the extreme density of the turf. A more uniform surface supports a faster and firmer fairway surface as well as fewer ball marks and more accurate putts. Tees Re-leveled and replaced turf on tees for an improved tee firmness and level golf stance, in turn improving golfers tee shots. Added several new tees to expand
