Project GRILL to be
unveiled at Road
America vintage race
Active, reserve and retired military
will receive free admission to the
Saturday, May 19 race
ELKHART LAKE, Wis.
(April 3, 2012) – As part of
its commitment to honoring
America’s heroes, Road
America announced that all
active, reserve-duty military
and veterans will receive
free admission to the Spring
Vintage Races at Road
America on Saturday, May
19, which is Armed Forces
Day. The Spring Vintage
Weekend is a three-day
event that runs from May
18-20 and features exciting wheel-
to-wheel racing of vintage and his-
torical cars. More than 300
participants are expected to race in
ten separate groups – from produc-
tion and grand touring cars to
sports racers, prototypes and for-
mula cars.
“Our brave women and men of
the military are called upon to sac-
rifice in countless ways. Now, all
of us at Road America want to
show our appreciation for their
service on Armed Forces Day with
free admission to enjoy the Spring
Vintage Races,” said George
Bruggenthies, Road America track
president and general manager.
“This is a small gesture of appre-
ciation for the women and men
who have given so much to defend
our liberty and freedom, and con-
tinues Road America’s long-stand-
ing commitment to our nation’s
active and retired military. We
hope everyone has a great time
during the Spring Vintage Week-
end.”
Admission for Saturday, May
19, is waived for all active duty
members of the armed forces in-
cluding activated reservists and
veterans, regardless of their state
of residency. To receive the free
admission, veterans must either
have a retired military identifica-
tion card or a standard discharge
form known as a DD214. Active
duty personnel must have their
photo identification card issued by
the Department of Defense.
In addition to the events on the
track, Project GRILL will cele-
brate its fifth anniversary with a
live unveiling celebration in the
paddock area where participating
high school teams will unveil their
grills. Project GRILL is a commu-
nity run program, paring high
school teams in Sheboygan
County with manufacturing
partners in the community
to build a customized grill
from scratch. By building
the grills, high school stu-
dents are exposed to excit-
ing technology and skills
while learning that a career
in manufacturing can be
very rewarding. This year,
five high school teams, in-
cluding one from Kohler,
are participating in the
countywide program. An-
nually, Project GRILL touches the
lives of more than 70 high school
students, 20 Sheboygan County
corporations and numerous educa-
tors. To learn more about Project
GRILL visit www.projectgrill.org.
During the Spring Vintage
Weekend, Road America’s park-
like setting will provide fantastic
views of these rare vintage vehi-
cles as they race throughout the
undulating circuit while its fan-
friendly paddock allows spectators
to get close to the cars and talk to
the racers. Gates will open to the
public each day at 7:00 a.m. Ad-
vanced admission is $40 for the 3-
day weekend, $10 Friday, $20
Saturday and $20 Sunday until
May 9. Kids 12 and under are al-
ways free with a paying adult. All
races will run rain or shine. A ten-
tative event schedule is available
online at www.roadamerica.com.

The Sheboygan River, which
travels through Kohler, will soon
be removed from the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency’s list as one
of the most polluted areas in the
Great Lakes region, as the final
projects in the multi-phase cleanup
program are expected to be com-
pleted this summer.
Aside from removing health
hazards to people, fish and wildlife,
beneficiaries of the dredging proj-
ect include sportfishermen and
recreational boaters, the charter
fishing industry, tourists, busi-
nesses located along the waterway,
and the shipping industry. Civic
leaders hope the cleanup will lead
to economic boon, with the cre-
ation of jobs and increase in the tax
base as the riverfront and adjacent
areas become more attractive to
businesses and tourism. Dredging
of Sheboygan’s harbor and a sec-
tion of the river to a depth of 14 to
16 feet will be deep enough to han-
dle most boats, including cruise
ships. The 138-passenger York-
town cruise ship has scheduled
seven stops in Sheboygan from
June through August. Sheboygan
will be the ship’s only Wisconsin
Area’s underwater
makeover could
help boost local
tourism, economy

Located on land adjacent to the
middle river section are Kohler
Co., properties including Kohler
Stables, a tree nursery, the historic
Riverbend mansion and property,
Blackwolf Run golf course, and the
800-acre River Wildlife private
hunting and fishing area, which is
on the south side of the river adja-
cent to the upper and middle river.
City of Sheboygan residents and
visitors are being notified that in
order for the projects to be com-
pleted by the target date of Septem-
ber 30, 2012, the work may be a
24-hour per day, seven days per
week operation with dust, noise,
bright lights and significant
amounts of truck traffic (An esti-
mated 300 trucks per day will be
moving in and out of Sheboygan).
There will also be some disruptions
to boating traffic as docks boat
slips are removed or relocated, and
the 14th Street boat launch will be
closed during dredging. City of
Sheboygan Development Manager,
Chad Pelishek said there may be
inconveniences in the City of She-
boygan’s downtown for guests

Dear readers,
By now, most are aware of the
picketing around Kohler and in
front of my home led by Job Hou-
seye of Sheboygan and his family.
While I hesitate to use this publica-
tion to give the Hou-seyes any
more of the attention they seem to
crave from Kohler residents, I feel
I must defend myself from a few of
the many slanderous accusations
being disseminated by Hou-seye.
I allow a “child molester” to
attack the Hou-seye family on
an Internet message board that
I moderate.
FALSE. I allow someone who has
been the victim of unsubstantiated
child molestation accusations to
defend himself after those accusa-
tions were posted by Hou-seye on
that message board and others.
(The accused is a former member
of Hou-seye’s powerlifting organi-
zation who claims the child mo-
lestation accusations were
fabricated after he was made state
chair of a rival organization that
works with kids). A recently ob-
tained police report from the city
where the alleged incident took
place (the victims are not related to
the Hou-seyes), shows that the po-
lice conducted a six-month investi-
gation in 2007, and the case was
closed with district attorney declin-
ing to press charges. Neither par-
ents of the alleged victims (both
friends of the Hou-seyes), nor the
alleged victims (one or both of
whom are now 18 or over) have
come forward to confirm that the
accusations are true.
I use advertising dollars from
conservative businessmen to
“secretly” run a “liberal hate
forum.”
FALSE: The political debate forum
(which has never been declared a
“liberal” forum) has never been as-
sociated with The Kohler Villager
From the editor . . .
The Hou-seyes and friends picket the Struck residence and elsewhere in Kohler, Sheboy-
gan and Sheboygan Falls, while a family member captures it for uploading to YouTube.
nor its advertisers. Hou-seye, who
has himself participated on the
message board since 2004, has
posted his share of controversial
comments, as have many other
others who debate there. Most who
engage in sparring on these online
message boards understand that
much of the political rhetoric ex-
changed back and forth is just
opinion and hyperbole much like
political talk radio shows. Any who
find the comments on these forums
offensive are not obligated to con-
tinue visiting or participating in the
discussions.
I may be a Scientologist.
FALSE. This was one of the more
bizarre accusations that was shared
with a Kohler resident. I have
never been interested in Scientol-
ogy, nor have I ever said anything
to indicate that I ever had an inter-
est in Scientology.
Many have urged me to contact
the Kohler Police Department. I
did file a complaint, and an officer
asked Hou-seye to not have direct
contact with me via mail, email,
phone, or by knocking on my door,
however, the Kohler Police De-
partment determined that Hou-
seye’s actions have not risen to the
level of criminal conduct, and they
cannot prevent him from exercis-
ing his First Amendment right to
assemble and protest in public
places, which includes sidewalks
in front of private residences.
After Hou-seye and his friends
picketed my residence, he later
posted on the discussion board that
three of them had been armed at
the time. There is no law prevent-
ing holders of concealed carry per-
mits from being armed while
protesting in front of private resi-
dences. Hou-seye is claiming that
his next “phase” of his of his “ON
STRUCK” operation involves
leaving door hangers on Kohler
homes. Residents should be aware
that he usually carries a concealed
firearm.
While it would take an entire
page in this publication to dispel all
of Hou-seye’s accusations, I sim-
ply am not interested in using the
time and resources to do so, and
most residents are not interested in
a powerlifting feud between two
men who don’t live in Kohler. If
anyone does have concerns or
questions, feel free to contact me at
kohlervillager@charter.net or 920-
331-4904 and I will gladly provide
the facts.
The Kohler Villager
relies on residents
to submit events,
accolades
By Mary Struck, Publisher/Editor
Sometimes residents ask why
certain school or community
events aren’t covered in The
Kohler Villager. More often than
not it’s because I’m not made
aware of the events, or I because
I’m only one person and am unable
to attend every event that takes
place, especially school events.
The school doesn’t have an official
reporter and teachers don’t always
have time to write up articles about
all their students accomplishments,
so Village residents who send me
announcements and photos of their
children’s school activities and
awards are invaluable.
Some residents are shy about
sharing their student’s accomplish-
ments (or their own) because they
feel it will be seen as bragging. I
tell them it’s not bragging, it’s
news! Judging by how quickly
copies of The Kohler Villager dis-
appear from the newsstand at
Woodlake Market, I can confi-
dently say that articles featuring a
resident or student are the most
popular!
Now that The Kohler Villager is
published twice monthly, human
interest articles and photos can be
sent at any time without worrying
about meeting a deadline.
Dredging, continued
staying at Sheboygan hotels during
the LPGA Championship in
Kohler in August, but the City of
Sheboygan and the project team,
along with the Sheboygan Cham-
ber of Commerce, have been work-
ing with local businesses in
addressing those issues.
Area residents have been wait-
ing a long time for this cleanup. In
1977, the Wisconsin Department
of Natural Resources detected
PCBs during routine sampling of
fish in Sheboygan Harbor and the
lower Sheboygan River. Highest
concentrations of PCBs were de-
tected in sediment immediately
downstream from Tecumseh Prod-
ucts, a die-casting plant, with PCB
amounts decreasing farther down-
stream from the plant. In 1986, the
EPA declared the lower 14 mile
section of the Sheboygan River
and harbor a hazardous waste site
under the EPA Superfund legisla-
tion. The site begins at the Sheboy-
gan Falls Dam and flows
downstream through Sheboygan
Falls, Kohler and Sheboygan be-
fore entering Lake Michigan. Soil
and surface water was also con-
taminated with heavy metals in-
cluding arsenic, chromium, copper,
lead and zinc. In 1987, a PCB-con-
taminated fish, and fish and water-
fowl consumption advisory went
into effect.
A Sheboygan River Dredging
Workgroup was established in Au-
gust of 2009 to assist in coordinat-
ing the cleanup projects, and is
represented by officials from the
EPA Region 5, Great Lakes Na-
tional Program Office (GLNPO),
Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources (DNR), United States
Army Corps of Engineers, City of
Sheboygan, Sheboygan County,
Wisconsin Public Service Corpora-
tion, Pollution Risk Services
(PRS), and Tecumseh Corporation.
The first phase of the cleanup,
from August to October, 2004 fo-
cused on stopping PCB-soil and
ground water contamination at the
former Tecumseh facility in She-
boygan Falls. The second phase
was completed in 2007, with
cleanup of the upper river from the
Tecumseh site to the Waelderhaus
Dam in Kohler. Dredging of Camp
Marina in Sheboygan was com-
pleted in 2011.
Several projects are currently
underway including the Lower
River Superfund Dredging Project
in the area between the Chicago &
Northwestern railroad bridge and
the Pennsylvania Street Bridge in
the City of Sheboygan; the Legacy
Act Dredging Project Feasibility
Study & Design which will lead to
additional dredging in the Lower
River project area; the US Army
Corps Dredging Project from the
8th Street Bridge east to the She-
boygan Harbor. The Sheboygan
River AOC Fish & Wildlife
Restoration Projects will also be
implemented in 2012 for shoreline
restoration stabilization, fish and
wildlife habitat restoration and as-
sessment, Wildwood Island
restoration, eroding river bank sta-
bilization, and invasive species
control in the Sheboygan River.
Total cost of all projects will be
nearly $100 million, with funds
coming from the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency’s Super-
fund program and its Great Lakes
Legacy Act through the Great
Lakes Restoration Initiative
(GLRI) Program. ( At least 35 per-
cent of Legacy Act project costs
must come from state, local or pri-
vate sponsors). Non-federal funds
are coming from the Wisconsin
DNR, City of Sheboygan, Sheboy-
gan County and Wisconsin Public
Service Corporation, who are each
contributing $100,000. The City
and County of Sheboygan will
need to contribute an additional
$250,000 each. As a major source
of PCBs in the Sheboygan River,
Tecumseh Products and Pollution
Risk Services are paying an esti-
mated $12.5-$15 million through
its insurance carrier to remove the
pollutants.
Some of the sediment will be
taken to landfills near Hilbert and
Whitelaw, while more heavily pol-
luted sediment will be taken to
hazardous landfills in Michigan or
Oklahoma.

Patti Ann (Comstock) McClary, a
part-time resident of Tucson, Arizona
and formerly of Kohler, Wisconsin, as-
cended to her heavenly home on Mon-
day, April 23, 2012. She was preceded
in death by her parents, Fred and Ade-
line Comstock, beloved daughter
Katherine, infant niece Sarah, mother-
in-law Delores and special friend Barb
Woodrum with whom she is now
united in God's Kingdom for all eter-
nity.
Born on December 31, 1953 in
Evanston, IL, she married John A
McClary, Jr. in Green Bay, WI on June
4, 1977. In 1979, the family moved to
Sheboygan, WI and to Kohler in 1985.
Patti was very involved in Kohler Pub-
lic Schools as a member of School
Board, cheerleading coach and later
employed in the Student Services Of-
fice. Other previous employment in-
cluded positions at First Wisconsin
Bank, Shorewest Realtors and First
United Lutheran Church. While raising
her family, Patti was active as a volun-
teer with Sheboygan Service Club,
Readers' Theater, FULC Council,
Meals on Wheels and as an advocate
for a variety of cancer research initia-
tives.
In addition to her husband, John,
she is survived by daughters Meagan
(Shawn) Strehlow of Green Bay and
Erin McClary of Novato, CA; sister
Lori (Jim) Nelson of Cedar River, MI;

ther survived by half-sister Dale Com-
stock; father-in-law Jack McClary;
sister-of-the-heart Sally Olivieri;
beloved nieces and nephews; “4th
daughter” Dara Rodziewicz and “son”
Omar Bell.
Patti was a 12 year survivor of
leiomyosarcoma (LMS) cancer which
ultimately claimed her life despite
fighting it with all her might. She never
gave up! The family would like to
thank all of her special LMS friends,
whose website provided both support
and an abundance of valuable informa-
tion; the medical staff at the Vince
Lombardi Clinics in Milwaukee and
Green Bay; the surgical team at UCSF
led by Dr. David Jablons; and the UMC
Arizona sarcoma team led by Dr. Lee
Cranmer. A special thank you goes out
to Patti Dexter at UMC for her undying
devotion to Patti's medical care and
special bond they formed.
In lieu of flowers, the family en-
courages donations in her honor to
Kohler Public Schools designated for
the Katherine A. McClary Scholarship
Fund.
Patti was laid to rest at Woodland
Cemetery in Kohler.

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

Looking back . . .
Kohler’s first lifeguards
Neil F. Payne
The Kohler swimming pool was
built in 1956 and opened 6 January
1957. No lifeguards were available
from Kohler, so the Kohler High
School coach and athletic director,
Leroy (Andy) Anderson, contacted
the local Red Cross to learn who
had completed their life-saving
swimming program recently. He
learned that only my brother
Glenn, my close friend Sam Lev,
and I had done so. Glenn was a
sophomore and Sam and I seniors
at Sheboygan Falls High School.
Andy had been a coach and teacher
at Falls, and we knew each other.
Sam’s father worked at Kohler and
Glenn’s and my father used to
work there.
The three of us, and a girl from
Sheboygan, were absolutely
thrilled to be hired for $2.50/hour
as the first lifeguards of the glam-
orous brand new state-of-the-art
Kohler pool. It was pleasant ob-
serving Kohler residents file in for
the first time, wading through the
foot bath, awestruck at their gor-
geous new pool. Underwater
lights, one-meter and three-meter
diving boards, large sliding doors
that opened to the outside—heady
stuff for young folks like us. We
felt fortunate and privileged, took
our job seriously, and were consci-
entious and good at it. We had
some prestige. We also were stand-
ing on the pool deck watching all
the girls go by (humming the old
Four Lads song).
We had the privilege of swim-
ming before and after residents
could swim, and could bring
friends during regular hours when
we weren’t on duty. Off duty we
taught ourselves some fancy dives,
mostly from the one-meter board
but some from the three-meter
board: jackknife, jackknife with a
half twist, forward one-and-a-half,
half gainer with a half twist, full
gainer with a full twist. I trained
myself to swim underwater two
and a half lengths of the pool. We
gave swimming lessons to kids on
Saturday mornings.
The job lasted only a few
months, to the end of the school
year, until people from Kohler
were trained. Out of a job, that
summer I washed windows for
$1.00/hour in Kohler, Sheboygan,
and Sheboygan Falls for
Kretschmer’s Clean Window Serv-
ice, to earn money for college. But
we were grateful and proud to have
been the first lifeguards for the
Kohler swimming pool.
Epilogue: Sam Lev, married, 3
kids, 3 grandkids, flew combat
missions in Vietnam with the Navy
and is now a retired pilot with
Northwest Airlines, living in Shel-
ton, Washington. Glenn Payne,
married, 2 kids, 4 grandkids, was
in the Army in Germany and is
now retired from the U.S. Postal
Service, living in College Station,
Texas. Neil Payne, married, 3 kids,
3 stepkids, 9 grandkids, saw com-
bat in Vietnam with the Marine
Corps and is now an author and re-
tired professor of wildlife with the
University of Wisconsin-Stevens
Point, living in Plover, WI, Daven-
port, FL, and Campbellton, New-
foundland and Labrador where he
had been a wildlife biologist. All
three remain close friends. Neil’s
son Adam Payne is the county ad-
ministrator for Sheboygan County.
Neil Payne retired from the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin-Stevens Point
in 1998 and currently resides in
Florida where he continues to
write and publish books as a
hobby. He has three children:
Adam, who is currently the She-
boygan County Administrator,
Mark, a park ranger in Bay Beach
Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay,
and Erin of Madison, former vice
president of the firm that built Blue
Harbor Resort in Sheboygan. Neil
plans to return to Wisconsin after
Neil’s mother, age 96, still lives in
the area.
Photo taken circa 1957. On the left side of the photo, author Niel Payne talks with fellow lifeguard Sam Lev.
(with his back to the camera). Niel’s brother, Glenn Payne also lifeguarded.

Wendy Tauscheck receives
Coach of the Year honor
Tennis coach Wendy Tauscheck
was chosen as 2011 Division 2
Girls Coach of the Year by the
Wisconsin High School Tennis
Coaches Association. Since Kohler
was not the Sectional winner
(those coaches are automatically
nominated), another coach had
nominated her and wrote a nice
“bio” saying “Tauschek has built a
program at Kohler HS from the
ground up. Every year, even with
losing seniors, they get stronger
and stronger. This year, for the first
time in my six year tenure, she
won the conference, posting
VERY significant wins over in-
credibly strong teams like Ron-
calli, Plymouth (D1), and Sheboy-
gan Falls.” Online voting by the
member coaches took place re-
cently and Coach Tauscheck was
selected from a group of six nomi-
nees. She will be recognized at the
Coaches Clinic in Nov 2012.
Village residents may now reg-
ister and pay online for some of the
activities offered by the Village of
Kohler Recreation Department by
visiting KohlerRecreation.com.
Payments may be made via credit
card or PayPal. Registration begins
May 7.
Forms are also available on the
website in pdf format for printing
and dropping off at the Village Hall
with payment. The forms are for-
matted so that they can be filled
out while open on the computer,
then printed. Or they can be printed
and completed by hand.

selves. The service will be a serv-
ice of the Rite of Confirmation and
the celebration of the Sacrament of
Holy Communion. The people of
Grace UCC celebrate "open" com-
munion, inviting everyone who
wishes to enhance their relation-
ship with God to come to the table
of the Lord and fully participate in
the receiving of the elements of
Holy Communion.

The Kohler Triad Swim team
has completed their second official
year. They consist of four schools:
Kohler, Lutheran High School,
Sheboygan Falls High School, and
Sheboygan Christian. They are
relatively new team, having only
been started in 2009, but have
come a long way. The season starts
in early August and lasts until mid
November. The girls swim hard at
practice and swim about thirteen
hours a week, not including meets.
•We•ve really come a long way
and with the help of the commu-
nity we can go even further•, said
Erin Lammers. We have a great
team atmosphere and we have fun
together. The team motto is •Atti-
tude is everything• and it certainly
shows in the team. The girls are al-
ways ready to do anything pre-
sented to them at practice or a meet
and the whole team is down at the
end of the pool cheering the swim-
mers on. The girls came in second
in Conference this year, only be-
hind Plymouth. They also came in
9th of 12 swimming Div. 1 at sec-
tionals. The team is looking for-
ward to another great season and
hopes to host some meets in the fu-
ture.

ciation of America (NSCAA) Aca-
demic Award.

age of 3.25 for the entire academic
school year. A total of 386 teams
(144 boys, 242 girls) claimed the
award for the 2009-10 school year,
including six boys teams and 11
girls sides from Wisconsin.

Soccer program•s success
extends beyond high school
Everyone in the village is aware
of the success of the boys high
school soccer program. The Blue
Bomber boys have racked up many
awards over the past five years in-
cluding three conference champi-
onships, five regional champion-
ships, a sectional championship
and state runner up last year. What
you may not know is that several
players have taken their high
school experience and success
with them into college. Currently
there are four soccer alumni play-
ing college ball:
AJ Armstrong (Class of 2007)
plays defender for Wisconsin
Lutheran College. He was a team
captain and key player when the
Blue Bombers went an undefeated
14-0 to win the Central Lakeshore
Conference (CLC) in 2007.
Kevin Beine (Class of 2009)
plays for St. Norbert•s College. He
was a team captain and second
team All Conference defender for
Kohler in last year•s run to state.
Jimmy Mani (Class of 2007)
plays for UW Sheboygan and was
recently named 2nd team All Con-
ference in the Wisconsin Colle-
giate Conference. Jimmy was the
CLC leading scorer in 2007 for the
Bombers. He also received 1st
team All Conference and All State
(Honorable Mention) honors.
Austin Van Treeck (Class of
2009) plays for Ripon College and
has two goals and an assist in his
first year playing college ball.
Austin was the conference leading
scorer last year and an All Confer-
ence selection for the Blue
Bombers.
Austin recently sat down to
feild some questions about his col-
lege experience so far:
What is it like to play soccer at
the college level?
•Playing soccer at the college
level is everything I dreamed it
would be and more. It is a lot more
physical and the amount of time
and effort put into it becomes your
lifestyle.•
What was the biggest difference
from high school?
•I would say the biggest differ-
ence between high school soccer
and college soccer is the overall
pace of the game. You need to an-
ticipate your next move and your
opponent•s moves even more than
in high school.•
Did you feel well prepared
when you went out for the team?
•When I arrived at our first day
of practice I felt lost and out of
sync. It took some time to transi-
tion and get used to the speed of
play. Also my conditioning need
much improvement.•
I see you were moved from for-
ward to midfielder/defender. How
was that transition?
•Yes, my first time on the field
in a game I played outside mid-
fielder. I was just told to work hard
and run until I couldn't anymore.
The transition was brutal but gave
me a better perception of what it
took to play that position and what
players had done in that position in
order to get the ball up to the for-
wards.•
What was it like to score your
first college goal?
•My first college goal was in-
credible. It was an overtime game
winning shot from about 30 yards.
I actually didn•t' get to see it be-
cause I was immediately knocked
over after I took the shot. It was
not a realistic first goal but either
way it felt incredible to have a goal
and know that I did something to
benefit the team.•
What advice would you give to
kids in the village dreaming about
playing college soccer?
•To all those who dream of the
chance to play college soccer or
even those who want to play high
school soccer, my advice to them
is keep working hard consistently
and don't let anyone tell you are in-
adequate and you won't make it. If
you give it your all you will be
happy with the outcome.•

sponds to medical calls in the Village and
provides the first level of care until a para-
medic arrives. The Kohler Police Depart-
ment takes this role very seriously and
invests in training and equipment to pro-
vide the best First Responder services it
can. I’m proud of our officers and their
commitment to this service and I hope that
you are too.

KOHLER VILLAGER 11
Kohler Blue Bombers do it again -
state champions in 1999
By Bruce Erickson
It would be 16 years before the
Kohler boys basketball team
would return to the State Tourna-
ment in Madison. Over those 16
years Kohler had made it to the
sectionals in 1993, 1994, and 1996
only to be taken out by perennial
power house, Randolph. There had
been some significant changes in
high school basketball and in tour-
nament format over those years.
The three point play was added in
the early nineties, and beginning in
1990, there were four divisions
competing for the championship
instead of the previous three. The
State tournament was moved to the
Kohl Center in 1998, and fifteen
players were now allowed to make
up the tournament roster. Private
high schools were still playing in
their own tournament.
The Kohler Blue Bombers in
the 1999 championship year were
coached by Jeff Wolf. He was in
his sixth year of coaching Kohler.
Jeff had starred on the 1976 Kohler
state tournament team.
Coach Wolf was looking for-
ward to the 1998-99 season with
great anticipation. He had all his
returning players from a team that
finished 14-9, won its last six
games of the season and took
eventual state champion Randolph
to overtime in the regional finals.
Letter winners from the previ-
ous year were Casey Maki, Danny
Robbins, Greg Gottsaker, Mark
Schumacher, Greg Pierce, Kevin
Jensen, Lee Haugen, Zach Pethan,
and Mike Reilly. Other players
adding to a strong bench were
Chris Adkins, Tim Gumm, Tobi
Gopon, Paul Gordon, David
Campbell, and Aaron Nonhof.
Kohler was a tall and talented team
with all starters over six feet tall
with sophomore center Zach
Pethan at 6' 5''.
Kohler opened the season on a
tough note dropping a non-confer-
ence game to Sheboygan Lutheran.
Lutheran tied the game with a
buzzer beating three point shot that
sent the game into overtime.
Kohler had two easy wins over
Cedar Grove and Brillion before
they headed into their match with
Oostburg. Oostburg was gunning
for its 41st conference win in a
row. It was a tough battle but Oost-
burg came out on top 61-57. An in-
teresting follow-up to that game is
that Oostburg had their streak bro-
ken a week later by Cedar Grove
who had lost 26 games in a row.
Kohler at one time had 27 confer-
ence wins in a row.
Kohler righted themselves and
would win their next five confer-
ence games before they had their
rematch with Oostburg. This time
they lost the season series by a
score of 50-42. Along the way they
lost two non-conference games to
St. Mary’s Springs and New Hol-
stein. With a conference record of
9-2 they would go into the last
weekend of the season with a
chance at a tie for the conference
championship. They needed a win
at Ozaukee. Kohler lost by a score
of 51-41 and finished the regular
season with a record of 13 and 7.
Coach Wolf had a difficult task
of getting his team up for the tour-
nament. They had lost their last
two games of the season and no
doubt their spirits were down. The
coach did a great job of turning
things around and the Kohler Blue
Bombers made a fantastic run to
the State Championship.
Kohler opened their tourney run
with a home game against Oak-
field. They won going away by a
score of 75-44. Fifteen players
were in the game for Kohler and
eleven of them scored. Next up
would be a game with Green Lake
played at Hilbert. It was a one
point game at half-time but Kohler
pulled away to win 48-36. Cody
Maki scored 16 points with 10
boards and Zach Pethan added 10
points and 8 rebounds.
Kohler would face Princeton in
the regional finals. Pete Barth of
the Sheboygan Press described the
Blue Bomber team the best when
he reported “Coach Jeff Wolf can
only start five players but minutes
after tip off the line between
starters and his reserves can be-
come blurred in a hurry. When the
Bombers are on their game, they
come in waves of blue, substitut-
ing throughout and hardly missing
a beat.” This strategy worked to
perfection as Kohler rolled over
Princeton 67-40 to move on to the
sectionals.
For years the sectional tourna-
ment was held in West Bend and
the games were played there for
two nights. In 1999 things had
changed and Kohler was in for
some long bus rides. The first sec-
tional game was played at Water-
town and their opponent would be
Fall River. After a tight first quar-
ter where Kohler held a 11-10 lead
the Blue Bombers lived up to their
name as they hit a barrage of three
pointers in the 2nd and 3rd quar-
ters to earn a convincing win 71-
50. Casey Maki ended up with 16
points which included 3 three
pointers, Lee Haugen 10 points
which included 2 three pointers.
Next it was a long bus ride to
Janesville to take on Pecatonica for
the right to go to Madison.
Pecatonica came into the game
with an impressive 19-5 record and
was a tall team. Pete Barth of the
Sheboygan Press described the
Kohler performance. “Cohesive,
balanced, patient, and poised. Oh,
and tack one more complimentary
description to the collective backs
of the team: state bound.” Kohler
stunned Pecatonica with a 14-2
second quarter run that gave them
a 31-14 half-time lead.
Pecatonica cut the lead to 47-43
with two minutes to play but
Kohler made 10 of 14 free throws
down the stretch to win the game
58-46. Greg Pierce had an out-
standing first half and Greg Gott-
sacker a fine second. Again it was
balance scoring with Zach Pethan,
Mark Schumacher and Greg Gott-
sacker ending with double digit
scoring. Kohler was returning to
Madison for the first time in 16
years.
Kohler would play Prentice in
the first game. They were a team
that had a perfect 25-0 record and
had won most of their games by
wide margins. Kohler got off to a
20-10 lead with Casey Maki
calmly hitting on 3 three point bas-
kets. But Kohler only led at half-
time 30-26. The third quarter was
low scoring and Kohler clung to a
one point lead 36-35. The game
came down to the wire as the game
was tied at 38 with five minutes to
go. Kohler played some outstand-
ing defense and outscored Prentice
17-4 the rest of the way for a 55-
42 win. Keys to the game: Cody
Maki with 17 points and great de-
fense on Prentice’s Kyle Lord
holding the star to 12 points. Greg
Pierce who is holding Prentice star
Nikki Heikkinen to a 0-9 shooting
in the first half. Greg also pulled
down 9 rebounds. Lee Haugen was
outstanding off the bench with
some key shooting and passing. He
ended up with 11 points. D a n
Robbins with his clutch free-throw
shooting and Mark Schumacher
with a stellar rebounding game
aided in the victory. Now it was on
to play Cassville for the champi-
onship.
Cassville came into the final
game with a 19-5 record. They had
a tall front line of 6-4,6-5 and 6-6
players. They also had a great
shooting guard in Clint Nemitz.
Kohler used a pressing zone de-
fense the whole game and forced 9
first half turnovers. The amazing
thing about Kohler’s defense is
they were not fouling. Cassville
only got to the free throw line 2
times the entire game. Kohler
started out with some hot shooting
which included 3 first half three
pointers by Casey Maki. Two long
range bombs by Cassville kept the
game close at half time 30-25.
Kohler used just seven players for
the game and all were contributors
in the victory. Sophomore Zach
Pethan had played only 10 minutes
against Prentice but on this day he
would have the game of his life.
He scored 18 points on 7 for 10
from the field and added 6 re-
bounds. Casey Maki had his usual
stellar game adding 17 points. Dan
Robbins ran the show from the
point position and hit all three of
his shots which included 2 three
pointers. Greg Pierce was a demon
on defense and added some great
rebounding against the tall
Cassville team. Mark Schumacher
and Lee Haugen filled their roles
with fine defense and adding key
baskets. And then there was “Mr.
Clutch” Greg Gottsacker who
calmly dropped in 5 free throws in
the last minute to put the game
away 61-55. Kohler took the lead
after the first 4 minutes and never
lost it. Cassville stayed in the game
with some long range shooting
which include 5 three pointers by
Nemitz. Kohler broke a Division 4
record with 60 % shooting from
the field.
As the final horn sounded the
Kohler team erupted in celebra-
tion. They jumped and hugged and
gave the number one sign to the
Kohl Center crowd. The Kohler
fans in their blue and white were in
a frenzy. Minutes later Coach Jeff
Wolf was awarded the gold trophy
and lifted it to the Kohler fans. He
gave it to his team and they re-
peated showing it to their loyal fol-
lowing resulting in even louder
cheering.
The next day the team had their
honorary breakfast with the gover-
nor and then it was on to Kohler
for their triumphant return. The
team was met at highway Y by two
fire trucks and many cars bearing
balloons, streamers, and Go
Bomber signs. They guided the
team through the village passing
cheering on-lookers. This was fol-
lowed by a huge pep-rally in the
gym. The gold ball was back home
again.
I would like to thank Joyce and
John Pethan for sharing their won-
derful scrapbook and the dvds of
the games in Madison.
Basketball History-
An Epilogue
By Bruce Erickson
In 2010 I thought it would be
interesting to document the first
time Kohler High School earned
its way to the state tournament in
1950. Two years and nine articles
later I have written about the en-
tire basketball history of Kolher’s
trips to Madison. I hope the read-
ers enjoyed reminiscing as much
as I did. Kohler High School has
fielded basketball teams since
1929. It is important to remember
that in these 84 years there have
been many outstanding teams
and players that never got the
privilege of going to state.
In reviewing my notes I no-
ticed that I had neglected the fine
assistant coaches that helped the
teams in their earning their way
to state. Glen Funk in 1950 and
56,
Ted Frostman in 1972 and 76,
Larry Kampman in 1980, 82, 83,
and 99. Ken Roeder also assisted
in 1999. Gary Dietzo assisted the
girls in 1982. Also over the years
Kohler has been fortunate to have
many volunteer coaches for play-
ers at the younger levels.
There is no doubt in my mind
that the boys and girls teams will
once again ake it to the state tour-
nament. It takes dedication on the
future players part with much in-
dividual work during the off sea-
son. The old adage basketball
players are developed in the sum-
mer and teams during the season
still holds true. Practice in shoot-
ing is most important and pick up
games when the chance arises re-
ally helps build basketball skills.
One more word of advice for all
the young players in Kohler:
GROW!
