Thirty-seven years of KPAL
Bingo comes to an end
The August 30, 2011 Bingo nite
hosted by the Kohler Police Ath-
letic League (KPAL) ended a 37-
year tradition in Kohler, as
declining attendance led KPAL to
make the tough decision to discon-
tinue the event.
Held on the fourth Sunday of
the month from March through
November, “Bingo Nite” began in
1974 when Wes Prange felt the
KPAL needed to raise additional
funds for youth activities in the
Village of Kohler. Originally,
Bingo was held in the “Tap Room”
of the American Club, and then
moved to the Kohler Firehouse,
where the event has been held for
the past 30 or more years.
In the beginning, Bingo cost $3
per game. Most recently, it was
still a great value at $10 for regular
bingo and $5 for the early bird
Over the years, KPAL members
enjoyed the camaraderie at “Bingo
Nite” and got to know many of the
attendees who came from through-
out Sheboygan County. The first
Bingo coordinator or “Czar” was
Henry Fricke; then came Marvin
Verhelst, who took over for many
years; followed by Gary Wight-
man, Jeff Simon, and finally Cam
Litt. The funds raised from Bingo
have helped pay for the two annual
$1,000 scholarships given to a
male and female Kohler High
School graduate each year. In ad-
dition, proceeds helped pay for
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts activ-
ities, and recreation activities like
baseball, soccer, and basketball, to
name a few.
“As we all know, good things
must come to an end,” said Cam
Litt. “Due to continued decline in
attendance the last few years, it
was decided to no longer do
Bingo. It was a tough decision for
the organization, but one that had
to be made since we can now use
our efforts in other areas that will
help generate additional funds for
youth activities. The KPAL organ-
ization would like to thank all
Kohler residents and the greater
Sheboygan area community that
supported bingo in the past.”
Some of the long-time players
expressed their sadness that the 37-
year tradition was ending, stating
that it was one of the few activities
that gave the elderly a chance to
get out of the house. “Everything
is being taken away from the eld-
erly,” said Sheboygan Falls resi-
dent Bertha Cook, 98, who has
attended the KPAL Bingo night for
25 years. “There isn’t much for the
elderly to do but sit at home.”
While some churches in the
City of Sheboygan and around the
county have also discontinued
their Bingo, avid players still have
some options. The following is a
list of churches and organizations
that still hold Bingo events:
Blessed Trinity Parish, 327 Gid- •

Sports Core lobby, tennis courts getting makeover
If you’ve been to the Sports
Core in Kohler recently, you’ve
noticed major construction taking
place. The lobby and tennis courts
are undergoing some exciting ren-
ovations that are expected to be
completed around December 16,
2011. The annual anniversary party
that normally takes place in Sep-
tember was postponed until after
the renovations are complete, and
will be combined with an open
house celebration.
Plans include a new reception
desk located closer to the entrance,
which will also free up more space
for viewing the tennis courts. A
new stairway will feature much
brighter lighting and an artistic fab-
ric centerpiece. New flooring in the
lobby area will be a combination of
wood grain vinyl plank, carpet and
walk off mats near the entrance for
messy weather.
In the tennis viewing area,
chairs will be reupholstered along
with tennis benches adjacent to the
courts. New café tables and café
stools will be added for viewing
while enjoying a favorite snack or
beverage from Take 5 Café. Com-
fortable seating areas with flat
screen televisions will be located
on the north and south end of the
lobby with additional accent light-
ing for reading.
All six tennis courts will be
resurfaced to match the outdoor
courts. State-of-the-art lighting,
heating and ceiling insulation will
make the court area more efficient
and brighter for players. The ceil-
ing over the courts will extend over
the viewing area, allowing specta-
tors a more open and enhanced
view of court play.

Kohler School Foundation’s
Fall Follies is great fun! The
evening includes silent and live
auctions as well as dinner and
dancing. The auction is a commu-
nity-wide effort and a great way to
support and get involved with the
school. Fall Follies is scheduled
for Saturday, October 15, 2011, in
the Main Stage tent centrally lo-
cated at The Shops at Woodlake.
Since 2007, the event has
helped to raise over $150,000 that
has directly supported the Kohler
School Foundation’s Annual Fund
and Student Scholarships. The An-
nual Fund provides for items not
otherwise funded by the school
budget. To date funding has pro-
vided many technology related en-
hancements including the
construction of the Distance Learn-
ing Center, overhead projection
units for each classroom, and a
mobile laptop lab. Last year, the
Annual Fund reached beyond tech-
nology and into the intangible as-
pects of developing the student
through Challenge Day, a program
that focused on developing an
awareness of the social challenges
of the Middle School and High
School. Together with the Kohler
School Friends PTO, the Kohler
School Foundation also supported
the Kind Matters campaign
throughout the school and into the
This year’s entertainment will
be an ensemble student perform-
ance of Carrie Underwood’s
“There’s a Place for Us,” the
Kohler High School Drum Line is
to make an appearance, followed
by a lively auction hosted by
emcee’s David Kohler, Superinten-
dent Marty Lexmond and auction-
eer extraordinare Daven Claerbout.
There will be a scrumptious Tail-
gate Buffet and Dancing to follow.
Special items that will be on the
auction block this year are club
seating for the Super Bowl Cham-
pion Green Bay Packers, a Sum-
mer Jeep or convertible rental, a
romantic Door County bed and
breakfast weekend and much,
much more.
“Fall Follies is truly about the
strength in numbers, when talented
volunteers, engaged faculty, gener-
ous community and business lead-
ers and enthusiastic parents and
alumni come together for the bet-
terment of our school and the ben-
efit of our children. There is no end
to what we, together, can accom-
plish.” said Kohler School Founda-
tion President Nina Kohler. “I am
so proud of our school and believe
this year’s event is a wonderful op-
portunity to support all of the great
initiatives on the horizon.”
Invitations are in the mail (ex-
tras for pickup are found in the
District Office). New this year is
the option to place table reserva-
tions, purchase tickets, and even

Kohler senior named
semifinalists in the 2012
National Merit Scholarship
Melyssa Louwagie, daughter
of Cheryl and Randal Louwagie
of Kohler has been named a 2012
National Merit Scholarship Semi-
finalist. On September 14, 2011
officials of the National Merit
Scholarship Corporation an-
nounced the names of approxi-
mately 16,000 Semifinalists in the
57th annual National Merit Schol-
arship Program. These academi-
cally talented high school seniors
continue to compete for 8,300 Na-
tional Merit Scholarships worth
more than $34 million. These
scholarships will be offered next
spring. Semifinalists must fulfill
several requirements in order to
advance to the Finalist level.
About 90 percent of the Semifi-
nalists are expected to attain Fi-
nalist standing. More than half of
the Finalists will receive a Na-
tional Merit Scholarship; thus,
earning the title of Merit Scholar.
The National Merit Scholar-
ship Corporation (NMSC) is a
not-for-profit organization that op-
erates without government assis-
tance and was established in 1955
specifically to conduct the annual
National Merit Scholarship Pro-
gram. Scholarships are underwrit-
ten by NMSC with its own funds.
Approximately 440 business or-
ganizations and higher education
institutions share NMSC’s goals
of honoring the nation’s scholastic
champions and encouraging the
pursuit of academic excellence.
More that 1.5 million juniors in
over 22, 000 high schools entered
the 2012 National Merit Program
by taking the 2010 Preliminary
SAT/National Merit Scholarship
Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

The national wide pool of Semifi-
nalists, which represents less than
one percent of U.S. high school
seniors, includes the highest scor-
ing entrants in each state. The
number of Semifinalists in a state
is proportional to the state’s per-
centage of the national total of
graduating seniors.
To become a Finalist, a Semifi-
nalist must have an outstanding ac-
ademic record throughout high
school, be endorsed and recom-
mended by the high school princi-
pal, and earn SAT scores that
confirm the student’s earlier per-
formance on the qualifying PSAT.
The Semifinalist and a high school
official must submit a detailed
scholarship application, which in-
cludes the student’s self-descrip-
tive essay and information about
the Semifinalist’s participation and
leadership in school and commu-
nity activities.
Approximately 16, 000 Semifi-
nalists are expected to advance to
the Finalist level and will be noti-
fied in February. All National
Merit Scholarship winners will be
selected from this Finalist group.
Merit Scholar designees are se-
lected on the basis of their skills,
accomplishments, and potential
for success in rigorous college
studies, without regard to gender,
race, ethnic origin, or religious

Kohler resident’s new
business offers help
in enhancing home
appeal and efficiency
For more than two decades,
Kohler resident Lisa Scheppmann’s
passion and talents for the home de-
sign field has continued to grow
and manifest itself in a variety of
ways. After graduating from the
University of Minnesota, Lisa’s
journey into home design and décor
began with the building of their
first home. Highlights since then
include playing an integral role in
the floor plan designs and décor of
each of her family’s two subsequent
homes, along with working for a
popular Window Treatment Design
Center and a leading Home Design
Studio – both in the Twin Cities
area. She also started a home win-
dow treatment business, creating
custom designs for numerous
homes in the Sheboygan and
Kohler areas. Lisa believes in the
vital importance and value of home
functionality and efficiency (floor
plan layout, storage and organiza-
tion) and along those lines created
a customizable home filing system,
The Home File Manager, as an aid
in combating paper chaos. She has
just recently launched a new ven-
ture bringing together her assorted
expertise under a single roof called
House to HAVEN Designs (part of
Lakeshore Creations, LLC.) Its
customers will be offered a collec-
tion of useful services sure to ap-
peal to home sellers, buyers, and
existing home owners alike.
Lisa said the mission of House
to HAVEN Designs is to work with
her clients to transform the style
and functionality of their homes.
She prefers to take a holistic ap-
proach to every project with the
goal of creating a cohesive look
throughout the customer’s home
while optimizing its overall flow,
efficiency, and value.
Lisa believes that given the
ultra-competitive state of today’s
realty market, it is critical for home
sellers to leverage the full potential
(style and space) of their homes.
This will give the seller their best
chance to get noticed and stand out
from the crowd. Conversely, for
those planning to stay in their
homes awhile, Lisa said that House
to HAVEN Designs seeks to create
the type of comfortable and inviting
environment that would make the
home owner never want to leave.
Her unique range of offerings en-
compass Home Staging Plans,
Home Transformation Plans, Cus-
tom Window Treatments, Home
Paper Management Systems, along
with providing a variety of project
related services as requested.
Whether you are a do-it-yourself
type or would rather leave the work
to others, Lisa’s approach is to de-
liver creative style and/or storage
solutions that fit her clients’ budg-
ets. She can be reached at 920/457-
7175 or by visiting her informative
and attractive new website –

NOURISH Farm to Family
Philanthropy hosts annual
Harvest Celebration on
October 8
Sheboygan, Wis. – NOURISH
Farm to Family Philanthropy is
planning its third annual Harvest
Celebration event on Saturday,
October 8, 2011 from 6-9 pm at
the new Generations building (an
intergenerational center) in Ply-
mouth. There will be locally in-
spired appetizers and desserts
prepared by NOURISH volunteer
chefs. Two special guest speakers
will give comments about NOUR-
ISH and its collaboration with
local organizations: Michael
Lanser, President of Lakeshore
Technical College, and Laura
Roenitz, Executive Director at
Safe Harbor. In addition to these
speakers, NOURISH is pleased to
announce a Live Auction with auc-
tioneer Daven Claerbout. Some of
the auction items include a French
culinary dinner for 8, Vollrath

dren’s kayak. There will also be
an opportunity to bid on tickets to
participate as sous chefs for the
opening event at the Kohler Food

tober 20.
NOURISH Farm to Family
Philanthropy is an educational
program which serves our com-
munity’s fundamental need for
healthy food by linking local farm-
ers with individuals through expe-
riences that ultimately change
behaviors. Founded in 2009,
NOURISH partners with 5 local
farms in order to furnish food for
meal programs at The Salvation
Army, Safe Harbor, Bridgeway
and Beyond TLP, and Generations
in conjunction with Head Start. In
addition, NOURISH brings
healthy snacks and education to
underprivileged children through-
out the year in collaboration with
the Boys & Girls Clubs, explain-
ing where food comes from and
inspiring them to try new healthy
foods. NOURISH is a program of
Sheboygan County Interfaith Or-
ganization (SCIO), an agency of
United Way.
As one way to raise funds for
its programs, NOURISH hosts an
annual event for the entire com-
munity. This year’s Harvest Cel-
ebration will be held at
Generations located at 1500 Dou-
glas Drive in Plymouth. Appetiz-
ers, desserts, and wine will be
served with an opportunity to par-
ticipate in both the silent and live
auctions. Tickets are available for
$10/person. There are also a lim-
ited number of reserved tables
available for $200. Contact Linda
Goodine, Director of NOURISH,

ing in the art of Reiki to enhance
their patient care skills. Reiki is a
Japanese form of stress reduction
and deep relaxation which helps
strengthen the immune systems
and promotes healing.
The University of Wisconsin-
Sheboygan Continuing Education
Office will offer two programs
this fall devoted to training every-
one and health care professionals
in this emerging whole-health fo-
cused healing art.
“Reiki Level I” training for
health care professionals and oth-
ers will be offered Saturday, Octo-
ber 1st from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
on the UW-Sheboygan campus.
The program is offered to those
who wish to become Reiki level I
practitioners and/or those who
want to utilize Reiki’s self-treat-
ment method to be active partici-
pants in their own healing.
Students in this workshop learn
Reiki attunement, how to perform
Reiki to a client and the art of self-
healing. Cost for this workshop is
$165 plus $20 for a training man-
“Reiki Level II” will be offered
Saturday, October 8th from 7:30
a.m. to 4 p.m. on the UW-Sheboy-
gan campus. This course is de-
signed for those individuals who
wish to become Reiki Level II
practitioners. Students in this
workshop receive level II attune-
ment, which increases their ability
to receive and utilize the Reiki en-
ergy. Students will fine tune their
skills as practitioners, learn to feel
high and low energy frequencies,
practice distance healing, under-
stand the use of symbols and per-
form body scanning and beaming.
Cost of this workshop is $250.
Both courses offer CEU credit
along with a certificate of comple-
According to instructor John
Oestreicher, registered Reiki mas-
ter/teacher and owner of Hands on
Healing Energy of Kohler, the
practice of Reiki in the health care
setting is gaining acceptance as a
meaningful and cost effective way
to improve patient care.
“This training is a wonderful
complement to a health care pro-
fessional’s practice and will bring
them up to date on what’s going
on in the rest of the world,”
Oestreicher said. “Reiki is benefi-
cial for mental, emotional and
physical conditions. Its wide range
of uses is endless. Many students
learn Reiki for self-healing tech-
niques, while others such as
healthcare professionals, such as
those in chiropractic, counseling,
medicine, nursing, dental care,
etc., use it to calm and accelerate
healing in their patients.”
Oestreicher added that Reiki is
becoming part of mainstream
healthcare in some foreign coun-
tries, such as England, where the
practice is part of the country’s
National Healthcare Service. In
England, anyone can go to one of
the country’s 300 hospitals as a
day patient and have a Reiki ses-
Some U.S. hospitals are also
adding Reiki to their regular care
options, including Tucson Medical
Center, Portsmouth Regional Hos-
pital in New Hampshire, Univer-
sity of Michigan Hospital in Ann
Arbor, MI, and the California Pa-
cific Medical Center in northern

Annual Sheboygan
Area CROP Walk Set
for October 16
Sheboygan, WI – The annual She-
boygan Area CROP Walk for
Hunger will take place Sunday,
October 16. This will be the 29th
anniversary of the event in this
area. Registration will begin at
12:45 p.m. at First Congregational
Church, 310 Bluff Avenue, She-
boygan. The walk will begin at
1:00 pm. and follows a designated
three mile route.
This walk combines the greater
Plymouth and Sheboygan areas
and continues the tradition of the
one larger event.
The 2010 CROP Walk in She-
boygan included 221 walkers who
raised $13,734. As with every year,
25% of the money raised stays in
Sheboygan County. Last year just
over $2,764 went to the Sheboy-
gan Food Bank and $651 was
given to the Plymouth Food Bank.
The remaining funds are sent to
Church World Service and used
globally in eighty plus countries to
empower hunger-stricken people
to produce food through sustain-
able efforts as well as through di-
rect food donations.
Prior to the start of the walk,
awards from the 2010 walk will be
presented. The golden tennis shoe
for raising the most money will go
to First Congregational Church of
Sheboygan and their top
fundraiser, Leaty Harris; the silver
sandal will be presented to First
United Lutheran Church of She-
boygan, and the bronze boot will
be awarded to Saron United
Church of Christ of Sheboygan
The CROP (Communities Re-
sponding to Overcome Poverty)
Walk is an annual event that raises
funds to fight hunger. The theme
for this year is “Ending hunger one
step at a time.” In addition to the
fight against hunger, Church
World Service utilizes CROP Walk
funds to improve living conditions
by providing safe drinking water,
preventive health services and
other humanitarian aid to some of
the world’s poorest populations.

KHS To Perform “You’re A Good
Man, Charlie Brown”
Most of the actors in the cast of
“You're A Good Man, Charlie
Brown" aren’t old enough to have
read Charles M. Schulz’s famous
cartoon strip while it still appeared
in newspapers. But 30 Kohler
High students are getting a crash
course in all of the Peanuts mythol-
ogy as they rehearse the songs,
scenes and dances from the popu-
lar musical based on fifty years of
Schulz cartoons.
“You're A Good Man, Charlie
Brown” will hit the stage at Kohler
Memorial Theatre on Friday, No-

as Charlie Brown, and his trusty
sidekick, Snoopy, will be played by
Kathryn Anderson. His arch neme-
sis, Lucy Van Pelt, is played by
Rachel O'Keefe, and Lucy's love
interest, Schroeder, is played by
Greg Suralik. Sarah Leick and
Logan Wright round out the leads
as Sally Brown and Linus Van Pelt.
“Every person in the cast will
play a specific character from the
comic strip," says director Peggy
Hoffmann. "From recurring char-
acters like Pigpen and Marcie and
Peppermint Patty to featured char-
acters like Cormac and Royanne
and Joe Agate. We even have
Woodstock and her troop of birds.”
The cast is hard at work learn-
ing choreography from Katie
Schmidt, who choreographed last
year's successful production of
"Thoroughly Modern Millie." A
pit orchestra featuring Kohler High
musicians along with pianist
Wendy Kukla will provide the ac-
companiment for the songs. Light-
ing will be designed by Ryan
The cast also includes Jessie
Dyksterhouse (Frieda), Elyse
Gutschow (Eudora), Grace Lof-
gren (Woodstock), Zach Neil (Pig-
pen), John Tengowski (Shermy),
Kelsey Wright (Peppermint Patty),
Seerena Yaj (Marcie), Sara Ertel

Warrior Dash success for Kohler Warriors!
By Kate Marventano
On September 17, a group of
Kohler villagers participated in the
Warrior Dash in Twin Lakes, WI.
The event included a 5k run and 12
obstacles that included climbing or
descending sheer walls, traversing
cargo nets, leaping over fire, and
swimming through mud under
barbed wire! The Warriors’ chal-
lenge gear showed great imagina-
tion with group themes, including
“Soda and Beer”, “Camo”, and a
“Black and Red” theme. Three
standouts from the Village of
Kohler: the first male finisher in
the group was Josh Andrews; the
first female finisher was Kim Post;
and the prize for the toughest war-
rior goes to Cassandra Wohlge-
muth for completing the entire
course in high heels! Warrior re-
wards included t-shirts, medals,
and a warrior hat. Warriors had the
opportunity to donate their sneak-
ers to the Green Sneakers program,
which gives shoes to people
around the world that need
footwear. The warriors were
treated to a huge after-party sport-
ing turkey legs, Warrior Dash beer
steins, and live music.

Father/Daughter Awarded
Silver Medals
In August, Sarah and Mike
Molepske competed at the 2011
U.S. National Barefoot Tournament
held in Waco, Texas. Both came
away with Silver Medals. Sarah re-
ceived two Silver Medals in the
Girls III category in both Tricks and
Slalom, and Mike received a Silver
Medal for Slalom in the Mens IV
This is the fifth year that they
have qualified and competed to-
gether at a National Barefoot Tour-
nament which is held at various
locations around the U.S. Their goal
as a Father/ Daughter team is to see
just how many national tourna-
ments they can do together. They
train together throughout the sum-
mer and also attend Ron Scarpa
Watersports in Florida for winter
training. They are both very active
in the sport by offering countless
volunteer hours. Mike is a senior
judge and Sarah an Appointed
Scorer representing the Midwest
Region at Nationals. They also host
an end of the season tournament ti-
tled “Cooler by the Lake” at their

Three from Kohler
compete in grueling
Wisconsin Ironman
Two Kohler residents were
among the nearly 2,500 athletes to
run, bike, and swim as part of the
Ironman Wisconsin triathlon,
which took place in Madison on
September 11. Participants from as
far away as Sweden, Germany, Ar-
gentina, France, South Africa, and
Canada converged on the state’s
capital to take part in the grueling
140.6 mile event, which includes a
2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and
26.2 mile run. Participants have
from 7 a.m. until midnight to fin-
ish the race.
The Ironman Wisconsin is
known for its huge crowd support.
The more than 45,000 spectators
line the streets to watch the event.
The swim takes place in Lake
Monona, near the Monona Ter-
race, the bike route has a reputa-
tion of being hilly and challenging,
and the run takes two loops
through the UW-Madison campus,
Camp Randal Stadium, and State
Street, finishing in front of the
state capitol.
It was the first full Ironman
triathlon for Sara Hess, 36, of
Kohler, who placed 33rd in the
event for the female 35 - 39 age
group, 159 in her gender (all ages),
and 901 overall. Over the summer
she did two half Ironman events
and a few other Olympic distance
triathlons to help prepare for the
Ironman Wisconsin race. To train
for the event, Hess began a nine-
month, six-day-a-week training
program in January. An easy week
required eight to ten hours of train-
ing, and a hard week reached 15 to
17 hours. “My husband and I
would study the training schedule
each week and arrange my work-
outs so that they could be organ-
ized around my job and family life.
I typically tried to get at least part
of my training done before going
into work in the morning.” (Sara
and her husband, Dr. George Hess,
III, have a dental practice in She-
boygan. They
have a five-
year-old daugh-
ter, Amber, who
is in senior
kindergarten at
Kohler Elemen-
tary). Hess said
training was
more difficult during the cold,
winter months when she would
typically swim laps in the pool at
the Sports Core, and tried to run
outside as often as possible. Her
indoor bike trainer was used pre-
dominantly when the weather did-
n't allow outdoor biking. Her
spring and summer training con-
sisted of running in Kohler and
Sheboygan Falls, biking in the
Kettles, and open water swim-
ming. “It was common for my hus-
band and 5-year old daughter to
kayak next to me in Elkhart Lake
during my 2-2.5 mile swims,” said
When asked if she plans to
enter another Ironman in the fu-
ture, Hess said she will certainly
do many more triathlons, but does-
n’t have plans to do another full
Ironman in the near future. “It was
a fantastic experience. Every mo-
ment of the day is so vivid in my
memory. The volunteers were
wonderful and crowd support in
Madison was unbelievable. I
couldn't have trained for such a
long event without the help and
support of my husband, family,
and friends!” Hess said. Her times
were: Swim: 1:18:26; Transition:
9:44; Bike: 6:45:24; Transition:
6:36; Run: 4:30:24 for a total of 12
hrs., 50 min., 33 sec.
It was also the first full Ironman
for Brett Edgerle, 51, who placed
40th in the male 50-54 age group,
620 in his gender (all ages), and
773 overall. He has done four half
Ironman distance races in the past.
What did his training ritual in-
volve? “Mile, miles and more
miles, good nu-
trition, and a
very supportive
f a mi l y, ”  s a i d
Edgerle, who is
Supervisor of
Civil Engineer-
ing at Kohler Co.
and serves as a
Village Board Trustee. His wife,
Deb, is co-owner of Salon 511 in
Sheboygan Falls. They have a
daughter, Asha, attending fourth
grade at Kohler Elementary. As for
whether Edgerle plans to attempt
another one in the future: “I
thought this would be a ‘one and
done’ deal, but within a week, I
started surfing the Internet for
races in 2012. I will do another
Ironman only if I can put the train-
ing in to perform at a respectable
level,” Edgerle said. “ I think any-
one is capable of doing an Ironman
distance race, if they really want it.
At some point it is as much mental
as physical.” His times were:
Swim: 1:14:36; Transition: 11:26;
Bike: 6:14:56; Transition: 7:19;
Run: 4:47:51 for a total of 12 hrs.,
36 min., 7 sec. Kohler resident
and attorney Dennis Melowski, 42,
qualified for the world Ironman
championship to be held in Kailua-
Kona, Hawaii on October 8.
Melowski is a veteran participant
in the Ironman. The Kohler Vil-
lager was unable to reach him for
an interview, but according to the
the Ironman website, he has partic-
ipated in the Ironman in different
cities and countries every year
since 2002. He qualified for the
world championship six of those
years, including this year, where
he came in 16th overall at the Iron-
man 70.3 in Buffalo Springs Lake,
Texas. (He placed second in his
age group, 15th in his gender (all
ages). He is also a four-time USA
Triathlon All-American.

Village of Kohler Centennial: In 2012 the
Village will be celebrating its Centennial.
Plans are already being made for a parade,
village picnic, fireworks, and more activi-
ties the weekend of August 3-5, 2012. The
committee is also working on publishing a
book to commemorate the centennial, but
we need your help. We are looking for
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 espe-
cially glad to get humorous anecdotes.
Any appropriate memory or photo is wel-
come. The editorial style will be relaxed
and conversational with a first-person “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.
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 Vil-
lage of Kohler unrestricted use of the ma-
terial, 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 regard-
ing who, what, where, and when. You’re
welcome to send a photocopy of an origi-
nal photo (for reference only, since photo-
copies 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 origi-
nal or a sharp reprint. Photos are returned
upon publication.
From Police Chief
Bill Rutten:
Trick-or-Treat: The Kohler Police Depart-
ment wants trick-or-treating to be fun and
safe for everyone. To help that cause, Offi-
cer Sass will be holding a Safe Trick-or-
Treat Awareness Program in the school for
the younger students. He will be passing
out trick-or-treat bags from the Police De-
partment. During Trick-or-Treating, which
will be on October 31
from 5:00 to 7:00
pm, officers will hand out the glow neck-
laces to any child that wants one. The glow
necklaces will make the children more vis-
ible as they are enjoying the night out.
Choosing a costume where the kids are
able to maintain good vision is also a very
good idea.
Carrying Concealed Weapons: As many
of you know, the State of Wisconsin will
have a new law going into effect on No-
vember 1, 2011, which allows carrying a
concealed weapon with a permit. The law
requires a background check and training.
In addition, the law still prohibits carrying
a concealed weapon in certain specific lo-
cations, such as Schools, Police Depart-
ments, and anywhere the premises are
posted. It is the responsibility of the permit
holder to know where they can carry. It is
advised that those that have a permit and
are carrying concealed to state that fact to a
law enforcement officer if you are having

Children with disabilities procedure
The school district must locate, identify, and eval-
uate all children with disabilities, including chil-
dren with disabilities attending private schools in
the school district, regardless of the severity of
their disabilities. The school district has a special
education screening program to evaluate all chil-
dren with suspected disabilities and are at least
three years old. Upon request, the school district
will screen a child who has not graduated high
school to determine whether a special education
referral is appropriate. A request may be made
by contacting Jackie Schira, Special Education
Director at 459-2920 x1200.
As the new school year settles
in, attention turns to what is new in
the learning experience in our
schools. Kohler High School has
added a number of new options
and activities to the educational ex-
On the academic side, Kohler
High School added new online
course providers and significantly
expanded Advanced Placement
(AP) offerings. In the fall of 2010,
Kohler High School offered 3 AP
courses, all face-to-face instruc-
tion. In the fall of 2011, the school
is offering 6 AP classes, four of
which are face-to-face courses and
2 are online. This significant in-
crease in students taking more rig-
orous courses supports the effort to
ensure that all students are college
Also on the academic side, the
high school added a new type of
study hall called Resource Study
Hall. This study hall provides a
small group setting where the
teacher provides additional moni-
toring and follow up for students
who are not staying on the college
readiness path. Students are as-
signed to the study hall if they had
course grades in the previous se-
mester not on the college readiness
path or show signs of falling be-
hind in current courses. These are
highly supportive experiences
where each student is provided
with the follow up needed to be
successful in high school.
Kohler High School Adds
New Opportunities
Kohler Staff Prepare to Welcome
Students for the 2011-2012 School Year
On the student development
side, Kohler High School launched
an advisory model through which
students in grades 9-12 meet twice
monthly with their high school ad-
visor. The purpose of advisory is
to build community across all
grade levels and teachers, to mon-
itor and support student progress,
and to hold important character de-
velopment conversations through
planned activities. The character
development conversations in-
clude discussion about making and
keeping friends, making ethical
decisions, and setting and meeting
Also on the student develop-
ment side, the Board recently ap-
proved a new, entry-level
administrative position. The Di-
rector of Student Life will serve as
the leader of the "lived" experience
in Kohler Schools with the school
principals focusing more energy
on the academic or learning expe-
rience. The Director of Student
Life will serve as the athletic direc-
tor, provide leadership for all
extra-curricular activities, support
online learners, support advisory,
and manage high school student
leadership development activities.
This position is budget neutral
given the recent departure of a dis-
trict administrator. This new posi-
tion became a possibility through
thoughtful redistribution of re-
sponsibilities within the organiza-
Finally and most importantly,
the high school welcomed 10 stu-
dents new to Kohler Schools.
These students are in each grade in
the high school with new district
families, new open enrolled stu-
dents, and international students
coming to Kohler High School for
the first time. The students were
paired with a Student Council Am-
bassador to welcome them to high
school and the district. Ambassa-
dors provide tours for the students,
make sure the new students are
connecting socially and academi-
cally, and help make Kohler High
School the best place to receive a
high school education.

Testing Program
The students listed will participate in this year’s water testing program
at Kohler High School.
This science enrichment program allows students to participate in a
community service project and also encourages them to use some of
their biology and chemistry skills.
The students will be actively involved in collecting, analyzing, and in-
terpreting biology and chemistry data related to the water quality of
the Sheboygan River. The Kohler group is responsible for testing the
river near Black Wolf Run Golf Course. Some of the tests include dis-
solved oxygen, biological oxygen demand, pH, temperature, total
phosphates, nitrates, turbidity, total solids, fecal coliform, and
macroinvertebrates. The water test results are sent to the Maywood
Environmental Center, and also to the local Department of Natural Re-
sources. Other Sheboygan County schools test different parts of the
river. All of the results are shared at a forum in the spring at May-
wood. Along with presenting the data, students suggest explanations
for their findings, and work together to explore possible action plans
that might have a positive impact on the area’s land conservation and
the environment. Students attend sessions where water quality experts
provide needed information. Students involved in the program are cur-
rently taking physics, advanced honors biology, or chemistry. Ms.
Krejcarek is the science teacher leading this group.

If you don’t have an elementary student but would like to support our school, please give your items to an
elementary student or teacher (they’ll be happy to take them off your hands!)
VERY IMPORTANT! Please cut along the dashed line and save the coupon only

Pennies for
4th & 5th Grade Book
Discussion Group
raises money for
School Supplies for
Students in Honduras
This past spring Mrs. Multer,
Kohler School Counselor invited
4th and 5th Grade students to par-
ticipate in book discussion groups
led by 7th grade students and a
high school volunteer. The seven-
teen elementary students along
with their ten 7th grade and high
school student leaders read the
book Three Cups of Tea.
The students learned how many
young people and especially girls
do not have the educational oppor-
tunities that many students in the
United States take for granted.
After reading and discussing the
book in their groups over several
weeks, the students all wanted to
find a way to help students in an-
other part of the world.
The students shared what they
had learned with the other Ele-
mentary students by reading the
book Listen to the Wind. Then
with the help of Mrs. Multer, they
arranged for a Pennies for Pencils
drive to take place during the
month of May at Kohler Elemen-
tary School.
The students donated $137.73
to buy supplies for students in
Honduras. These funds were com-
bined with money raised by
Kohler High School students to
total nearly $700 that was given to
former Kohler teacher, Mary Jo
Braatz. Mrs. Braatz will use the
money to buy school supplies for
the students in the village in Hon-
duras she visits every winter.

improves muscular strength. Join

stretching that can drastically help

physical pain as well as risk for cer‐
tain injuries.
