Skybox options and group ticket/ badge bulk orders offered
Kohler Co. and the United States Golf Association (USGA) are pleased to announce a strong surge in corporate sales over recent weeks, leading to Blackwolf Run’s clubhouse and premium hospitality venues for the upcoming U.S. Women’s Open to be sold out for the July 2-8 event in Kohler, Wisconsin. Only a limited number of all-inclusive, two and four-day skyboxes options remain along the 18th fairway. Perched above all the action, these coveted packages enjoy all the inclusive amenities, from nearby paved guest parking with air-conditioned motor-coach transportation to and from the main admissions gate, food and beverage services, dual-logoed corporate and championship commemorative merchandise opportunities, to the best shaded stadium seating on the final hole of the championship. Due to growing interest and demand, the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open has introduced a final corporate savings incentive program for Group Ticket/Badge bulk orders. Benefiting organizations, alumni, social, and/or professional groups, clubs, and companies small or large, this program rewards them for a simpler investment beyond the all-inclusive nature of larger corporate hospitality packages.

“We’ve heard from a number of companies and clubs who were eager to be a part of the championship, but on a more daily or more mass level as a way to enjoy fellowship and reward their members, employees and others within their networking circles,” explained Jackie Endsley, Account Manager for Corporate Programs for the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open. “The Group Ticket/Badge bulk order program has been well received in this manner, especially for those groups who were eager to activate in either a simpler, or in a mass way, with one such organization coming in and purchasing

Kohler Schools Superintendent Martin Lexmond was named as one of two finalists vying for a superintendent opening at the Shorewood, Wisconsin School District. The other candidate is Kirk Juffer, principal at Lake Bluff Elementary School. Lexmond, who has been with Kohler Schools for two years, said in a statement sent out to parents of Kohler Schools students that he applied for the position because “it presents an opportunity for me to pursue my aspirations as an educational leader and to serve young people in ways that matter deeply to me. It is a unique opportunity, one which will not likely come along again within my career.” Lexmond made it clear that he was very happy in Kohler Schools. “The School Board is strong, cohesive, and supportive. I could not ask for a better working relationship or for a more committed group of individuals to make up the Board. The work we have pursued in the past two years put the district on a focused and sustainable path and all of us can be proud of these efforts,” said Lexmond. “During the past two years we closed a budget deficit, implemented a plan to provide for long-term building improvements, developed a forward-learning strategic plan, and focused on expanding a positive school culture which attracts students and high quality teachers alike. The evidence that these ef-

By Mary Struck, publisher/editor Some non-resident subscribers of The Kohler Villager have asked why they don’t receive the midmonth issue. This is due to the expense and labor involved in mailing out appropriately 160 copies via first class mail. (A mailing label and two or three stamps have to be affixed by hand to each copy that goes outside of the 53044 zip code). Important school news and announcements remain in The Kohler Times section in the first of the month issue so open families won’t miss them. Copies of the mid-month issue can also be found on newsstands at Woodlake Market and Blattner’s Piggly Wiggly in Sheboygan Falls, or online at kohlervillager.com. If you are a non-resident subscriber with no Internet access, and you don’t want to miss the midmonth issue, you might consider arranging to have a family member or friend in Kohler pick up a copy from newsstands and mail them to you. If you are a non-resident who no longer has students enrolled in Kohler Schools, or you are receiving The Kohler Villager without paying a yearly subscription, or you no longer want to receive The Kohler Villager via first class mail, please contact me to remove your name and address from the mailing database (or to pay for a subscription).

Kohler resident and brainchild behind Bucky Badger mascot passes
William Richard Sachse, age 85, of Kohler, died unexpectedly Sunday evening, May 20, 2012 after a brief illness. Bill was born April 27, 1927 in Sheboygan to Erwin George and Eleanora (Wiemann) Sachse. He was a graduate of Sheboygan North High School, Class of 1945. After serving in the US Navy, he attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating with a business degree in 1950. While a junior at UW-Madison, he served as pep chairman and developed the idea of placing a papier mache Badger head on a cheerleader, replacing the live, uncooperative badgers previously used. It was his idea to name the new mascot Buckingham U. Badger, “Bucky.” In 1999, in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the birth of Bucky Badger, the university honored Bill as their Grand Marshall for the homecoming parade. While at the university he lettered three times as a varsity oarsman. He was a member of the National “W” Club, the Bascom Hill Society, and Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. On September 12, 1953 Bill and Mary Young were united in marriage in Madison. For many years Bill was a VicePresident of Robert W. Baird & Co. and managed its Sheboygan office. He was a founding partner of Milwaukee-based Capital Investment Services of America until his retirement.

In addition to his wife, Mary, he is survived by his son, William Sachse, Jr. of Whitefish Bay, WI, his daughter, Anne Sachse of Fox Point, WI, and his daughter-in-law, Susan Sachse of Scottsdale, AZ; three grandchildren, Taylor, Lisa, and Jackson Sachse of Scottsdale, AZ. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Sachse and his son, Stephen Sachse. A Memorial Mass was celebrated on May 24, 2012 at St. John Evangelist Catholic Church in Kohler.

Kohler graduate demonstrates extraordinary achievements in academics, sports and community service
SHEBOYGAN, WIS. — Melyssa Louwagie, daughter of Randy and Cheri Louwagie of Kohler, is the recipient of the 2012 Sheboygan Rotary Club scholarship of $8,000. Her award was announced at the club’s annual Good Citizenship and Scholarship Awards Night on April 26 at the Sheboygan Yacht Club. An accomplished soprano soloist, Ms. Louwagie entertained the Yacht Club audience after dinner with the Black Swan by Gian Carlo Menotti from The Medium. Ms. Louwagie currently is completing her senior year at Kohler High School, carrying a 4.0 out of 4.0 grade point average. She plans to attend Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio next fall, where she plans to major in biology and eventually pursue a career as a physician. Among her academic awards are Highest Honor Roll, Academic Certificates of Honor, Davidson Young Scholar, AP Scholar, National Merit Program Scholar, Coca-Cola Scholars Program Semi-Finalist, Kohl Excellence Scholarship Award and National Honor Society Member. Ms. Louwagie participates on the Kohler High School Math Team, Forensics Team, and as a team leader in Testing the Waters, an extracurricular science enrichment program. She has attended the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine, and was a speaker at the Wisconsin Association for Gifted and Talented Conference. Ms. Louwagie’s exemplary service credentials include her conceptualizing and launching of the Walk a Mile Without Shoes Walkathon for Haiti, which took place in October 2011 in Sheboygan County, gathering more than 300 pairs of shoes for the needy. Ms. Louwagie brought the shoes to Haiti herself, as part of her second eight-day mission trip to this poverty-stricken Caribbean country in January 2012. She serves as a volunteer at Sheboygan County YMCA, tutors biology, is an American Red Cross blood drive volunteer, and has performed with the Sheboygan Theatre Company Singers to raise funds for the organization. Her athletic credentials include Wendy’s Heisman Female School Winner and Triple Varsity Letter Winner in a Single School Year; she serves on the Kohler High School tennis team, cheerleading team, track team and dance team. Ms. Louwagie is a YMCA gymnastics instructor who has coached classes and team gymnasts ages 3 to 16, including at a national meet. Moreover, Ms. Louwagie’s time at Kohler High School has had a strong focus in the performing arts, where she has performed as a member of the CLC Honors Choir and CLC Honors Band. She has performed in multiple musical productions, served on the drama club, in the swing choir and Kohler Madrigals, in the jazz band and concert choir, the symphony honors band and pep band, and sang the National Anthem at the YMCA National Gymnastics Championship. The Sheboygan Rotary Foundation funds the Sheboygan Rotary Club scholarship. Major factors in the selection of recipients are involvement in school activities, academic achievement, record of community service and/or work experience, and career interests as expressed in a brief essay. Sheboygan Rotary Club members engage in fund raising activities in order to support this and other projects in the Sheboygan area.

Falls Lions, KpAL team up to stage Oktoberfest
by Jeff Pederson Sheboygan Falls News Editor For those looking to have a good time and support the community while doing so, River Park in Sheboygan Falls will be the place to be during the first weekend of fall. The Sheboygan Falls Lions Club and Kohler Police Athletic League (KPAL) have joined forces to hold the first annual Oktoberfest event Friday, Sept. 21 and Saturday, Sept. 22. Sheboygan Falls Lions Club Vice President and Oktoberfest Co-Chairperson Al Mayer said the event has been in the works for over a year. “Ever since the Sheboygan Falls Jaycees disbanded and Falls Fest ended, we felt that it was important to bring back a large-scale community festival type of event that would have a little bit of something for everyone,” Mayer said. “We felt fall was a perfect time to do it. The weather is generally a little cooler and more comfortable that it is in July or August and we also wanted to draw on the Oktoberfest theme.” Mayer said partnering with KPAL has helped to transform the event from an idea into a reality. “The Lions Club has been thinking about this for quite a while, but we felt we needed more help to make it happen,” Mayer said. “Getting together with KPAL has been the key to it all. As partners, I'm confident we can make this into a special event year in and year out.” Activity is slated to begin Friday, Sept. 21 at 5 p.m. with the highly popular Pat McCurdy Band slated to perform. “We are really excited to have Pat McCurdy come to perform,” he said. “They are a really good draw and have a great following throughout the area. We think that will be a good way to kick off the weekend. “We are hoping to have one more band on Friday night and five bands on Saturday, so there will be no lack of music.” On Saturday, Sept. 22, Oktoberfest will run in conjunction with the annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising event for individuals coping with type 1 diabetes. “We are also very excited to join with the JDRF organization for their Walk to Cure Diabetes event on Saturday,” Mayer said. “That event always draws a nice crowd of 500 to 800 people, so we think it will be of great benefit to both organizations to run our events simultaneously. “In addition to the walk, we are hoping to put together some type of running event as well, which we hope can draw even more interest,” he said. In addition to the live music and JDRF walk, Oktoberfest will feature a wide range of other activities, events and contests. Inflatable activities for kids will be offered free of charge, along with other youth-oriented events. “We want this to be a family event, so we have been focusing on offering things that everyone in the family can do,” KPAL member and Oktoberfest Co-Chair Jeff Romanoski said. “We will have all kinds of free inflatables for small kids right up through adults. “We are also planning to have kids' games and face painting, as well as a bean bag toss competition,” he said. “Our goal is to be as price-conscious as possible, so everyone can come and take part.” Mayer is hoping to offer a hole-inone golf contest, but has yet to receive clearance from the city. “Our hope is to have a floating green in the lagoon that people can shoot at to try for a hole in one,” Mayer said. “We are talking to the city about doing that, but we haven't had that approved yet. If we do get to do it, I think it would be a big hit.” In keeping with the Oktoberfest theme, a home brewing demonstration and contest is also in the works. “We want to have all the home brewers in the area get together for a demonstration and for taste testing,” Mayer said. “We would also like to do a contest with judging.” Mayer also hopes to get local businesses involved in the bean bag toss competition. “We want to do a bean bag toss contest for all age levels,” he said. “Our goal is to get the business community involved, so that we have a corporate division where businesses will form teams and compete against each other.” The Pine Haven men's organization will serve a pancake breakfast in the large pavilion on Saturday morning. The pavilion area is also tentatively scheduled to bingo and polka bands later in the day on Saturday. The Sheboygan Falls Lions Club, which boasts approximately 70 members, hopes to use the proceeds from the event to raise funds for the new westside park project KAPL, which features 75 mem-

Kohler High School Freshmen Lily Hart and Annika Lee were among the finalists in the 2012 Wisconsin History Day State Event held on May 5, 2012, and will advance to the national competition in Washington DC June 10-14. The first round of competition took place at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Northeastern Wisconsin Region’s National History Day competition on April 14, 2012, where nearly 400 high school and middle school students from 19 schools from around Northeast Wisconsin competed for a chance to advance to the national competition. The students worked individually or in small teams to submit history projects for this year’s theme, “Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History.” Students research their chosen topic by using diaries, letters, film footage, photos, and oral histories, then have the option of submitting their findings as papers, documentaries, exhibits, websites,

or performances, State finalists from Kohler middle school included two individual competitors: Hank Biznek and Isabelle Heins, and four teams: Sam Wenberg/Brendan Pellegrino; Amanda Egbert/Hannah Coppersmith; Sam Pfrang/Ben Tures/Hunter Lewinski; Lani Chung/Allie Bryce; and Jamie Pagelow/Amanda Meyer/Larissa Paseta. Quinn Zufelt of Kohler, who attends the sixth grade at Lake Country Academy, also qualified for the state competition. Kohler high school individual competitors qualifying for state included freshmen Hannah Cantrell, Halle Kolling, John Tengowski, Andrew Bryce, and Mara Todd. Teams qualifying included Ben Madigan/Connor Sbrocco, and Annika Lee/Lily Hart. A performance in the Senior Group Performances category titled “Making History from 9-5, Come


On Ladies Look Alive: Women in the Workforce” earned the team of Lily Hart and Annika Lee a trip to Washington DC for the national competition. Team Pagelow/Meyer/Paseta earned First Honorable Mention for their documentary titled “The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire,” and team Madigan/Sbrocco earned Second Honorable Mention for their documentary titled, “Nelson Mandela and the ANC’s Revolution to a Democracy.” Quinn Zufelt earned Third Honorable Mention for his exhibit titled, “Lincoln and Liberty.” This is the first time in the five year history of the event that Kohler students have qualified for nationals. Hart’s and Lee’s trip will be funded in part by a scholarship from Kohler School Friends, and funds from the Kohler Schools Talented and gifted program. Kohler Middle School social studies teacher Monica LaBudde will accompany them.

bers, will use funds from Oktoberfest to support various youth programs and activities in Kohler. “All of the money we raise goes back to our youth in Kohler,” Romanoski said. “That includes youth sports, Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts, scholarships and really anything having to do with youth activities.” Mayer and Romanoski invite other organizations and individuals to assist with the event. “We would like to make this event as successful as we can,” Mayer said. “To do that, we need to find as much support as we can from other service organizations, businesses, individuals and volunteers. We certainly won't turn anyone away that wants to help.” “We are very excited about this,” he said. “We have a very good core group of individuals working hard to make sure we start off strong. The goal is also to sustain things going forward, so we can continue to have a successful event for many years to come.” For more information on Oktoberfest, contact Al Mayer at 467-8166 or Jeff Romanoski at 918-0352.

Time spent discussing your assessment with the assessor may eliminate the need for a formal appeal to the Board of Review.

The Village of Kohler Board of Review will meet Tuesday, July 17th 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 their intent to file an objection at least 48 hours before the meeting of the Board.

police Intern: The Kohler Police Department has a college intern again this year, Natalie VanDyke, who will be starting her second year of school at Lakeshore Technical College this fall. Natalie will be riding with the officers and assisting the police department throughout the summer. College interns that work for the police department are unpaid and earn college credits based upon the number of hours worked. If you recognize the name, it’s because Natalie attended Kohler High School, graduating in 2010. Our interns get utilized for as many special events as possible, including the Bike Safety Day, 4th of July Fireworks, Brat Trot and other special events. This summer will require some extra work on Natalie’s part during the USWO and the Centennial events for the Village.

New part-time Officer: The Kohler Police Department recently hired Bradley Robinson to be its newest part-time officer. Brad has been working as a full time Deputy for the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Dept. since 2003 and will be patrolling the Village soon. The main reason for the additional part-time officer is to add to the officers available to work during the US Women’s Open in July. The Village will be a busy place that week, and we want to be able to respond to all the calls that we would normally be able to deal with.

College prep Biology students complete biotechnology unit
College Prep Biology students at Kohler High School have recently completed the biotechnology component of the biology curriculum. Biotechnology is the technology of using living things to create useful products. Biotechnology has historically been used in the making of bread, wine, soap, the treatment of waste, and the production of cheese. Selective breeding of agricultural animals and selective practices in crop planting have occurred for hundreds of years. Biotechnology has changed due to the advancements of technologies such as computers and software in the 1970’s to include the development of human insulin for the treatment of diabetes, human growth hormone for children, and identification of specific genes responsible for genetic disorders, and in some cases treatment for those disorders. College Prep Biology students learn and then use the steps necessary to move a gene from one organism to another. The process

The Kohler Performing Arts Organization would like to thank the donors, attendees and volunteers for making the 2012 "On Broadway" Dinner and Auction a tremendous success! The event realized a profit of over $33,800! All proceeds are used to fund summer music camp scholarships for middle school band and chorus students and the high school band and chorus performance trips. Plans are already underway for the 2013 Auction. Anyone interested in participating on the Auction Committee should contact one of the Kohler music teachers or PAO committee members. Thank you to all who made the 2012 "On Broadway" Dinner and Auction such a wonderful success.

The Kohler Performing Arts Organization would like to congratulate their 2012 summer music camp scholarship winners. After filling out their application materials, the following students were selected to receive summer camp scholarship: Catherine Coulson, Kellie Hoekstra, Caliey Warren, Kara Friske and Evelyn Heun. Congratulations Kohler music students.

GLOBE is a worldwide program composed of students, teachers, and scientists that work together to investigate and learn more about the environment. Students and their teachers across the globe are in charge of collecting and sharing data with other scientists and programs. Students in over 111 countries participate in GLOBE data collection led by over 54,000 trained teachers. The Kohler GLOBE Program is among 24,000 other schools that also collect data across the globe. The GLOBE program in Kohler is made up of students in College Prep Biology and General Biology. These students share the responsibilities of collecting and recording atmospheric data every school day. Older students in College Prep Chemistry, Advanced Honors Biology, and College Prep Physics contribute to the collection of hydrology data during the fall and spring. These students make up the Kohler Testing the Waters Team. The atmospheric data collected by

students in GLOBE is entered onto an international web-site data base. Students enter measurements like high and low temperatures, amounts of precipitation and pH, cloud type, and relative humidity.

CP Biology students end unit with field trip to Maywood
College Prep Biology students recently completed an environmental ecology unit with a field trip to Maywood Environmental Park. A hike through several biomes and collection and identification of aquatic macroinvertebrates allowed all students to practice the concepts they had presented on in group presentations.

involves the isolation of plasmid DNA, using endonuclease restriction enzymes to cut DNA at specific sites in the DNA sequence, ligation of the plasmid fragments, transformation of bacteria, preparation and casting of agarous gel, electrophoresis of restriction enzyme digested DNA, staining,

viewing, and photographing the gel, and learning the process by which scientists determine DNA fragment size. Ask any College Prep Biology student for more information on this experiment. They will be happy to share details of their successful experience!

testing the Water program recap
The Testing the Waters Program is a science enrichment program that allows students to participate in a community service project and also encourages them to use some of their biology and chemistry skills. The students listed participated in this year’s water testing program at Kohler High School. These students were actively involved in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting biology and chemistry data related to the water quality of the Sheboygan River. The Kohler group was responsible for testing the river near Black Wolf Run Golf Course. Some of the tests included dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, total phosphates, nitrates, turbidity, total solids, fecal coliform, and macroinvertebrates. The water test results were sent to the Maywood Environmental Center, and also to the local Department of Natural Resources. The Kohler students also participated in an Earth Day Program at Maywood in April, and a Water Quality Forum in May. Students had the opportunity to 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. Ms. Krejcarek is the science teacher leading this group.
