Applications to transfer out of the Stoughton Area School District have fallen sharply, to their lowest level in several years, according to a report presented last week. The district has received 104 applications, representing 85 students, from families who live in the district but would like to attend school elsewhere next school year through the states open enrollment system, superintendent Tim Onsager told the school board June 3. Last year, the district received 162 applications for 119 students. The applications can outnumber actual students because those students can apply to multiple school districts. The number of outside

students applying to come to Stoughton was also down, but near the midpoint of the past five years. The district received applications from 43 students, down from the 54 it received last year. The district wont know for sure how many students will come or go until the start of next school year, but the applications to transfer out are the lowest since the 2009-2010 school year, while the gap between applications into and out of the district has shrunk to its lowest level since 2007-08, according to a Hub review of figures previously supplied by the district. Onsager told the Hub after the board meeting he thought the numbers showed the district was on a good trajectory in general, citing initiatives such as the creation of the high schools new digital fabrication laboratory.

Cancer survivors to share stories this weekend

For Craig Bloyer, last weeks Stoughton High School graduation ceremonies held particular meaning. Diagnosed at age 44 with colon cancer that spread to his liver, Bloyer went through weekly bouts of chemotherapy for almost three years. He has recently restarted his treatment regime for a cancer that his doctor said is controllable but not curable. I needed to feel good for his graduation and his party, Bloyer said. That perseverance will be part of the story that Bloyer will share at this weekends annual

Stoughton-Oregon-McFarland Relay for Life, the local fundraiser for the American Cancer Society at Mandt Park. Bloyer will one be one of the events three honorary survivors, along with Renee Gray, of McFarland, and Colleen Williams, of Oregon. Part of Bloyers message this weekend is being a survivor is a very active, ongoing process for some. It has been for Bloyer, now 48. Bloyer had been battling some digestive issues several years ago and rationalizing the symptoms until he finally decided to the doctor, who recommended a colonoscopy.

City of Stoughton

Department of Administration review causes annexation delay

Mark Ignatowski
Unified Newspaper Group

Annexing 142 acres into the city to create the Kettle Park West development was delayed Monday after a letter from the Department of Administration found the move would not be in the public interest.

The citys Planning Commission was set to approve the annexation of land near Hwys. 51 and 138, however a letter from the DOA dated June 7 noted that adding this area to the city would create a 1.3-acre island property in the Town of Rutland off McComb Road. Although the subject

petition is for territory that is reasonably shaped and contiguous reference maps indicated that the annexation would render a parcel of land in the Town of Rutland entirely surrounded by the City of Stoughton, the letter stated. City maps show that

several properties surrounding the 1.3-acre parcel are part of the city. Annexing land to the north would cut that parcels continuity with the town. City planning and development director Rodney Scheel said Tuesday that

Officers Kellogg, Sargent, save lives last month

Unified Newspaper Group

Its uncommon in the career of a patrol officer to ever revive a person whos not breathing and has no pulse. Last month it happened not once but twice. Stoughton Police Officer Joe Kellogg is credited with being part of a team that saved the life of a 56-year-old woman on May 12 after shed had a cardiac arrest and was what the police and emergency medical service call a pulseless non-breather. Then one week later, on May 19, Kellogg and fellow patrol officer Cole Sargent responded to another 911 dispatch to find a 72-year-old man in the same condition. Once again, the pairs emergency response training kicked in and, with the help of Stoughton Area Emergency Medical Services personnel, they were able to revive the man.



Kellogg has been an officer with the Stoughton Police Department for more than four years, and Sargent for about five years. In separate interviews, both police officers said they were glad to be able to help and credited EMS personnel for their role in the life-saving events. But neither officer thought of himself as a hero. Instead, each seemed to take it in stride as part of what they do as a police

officer and public servant.

since 1984, said she was grateful to be alive. Im fairly vague on what happened, but my husband thought I was losing consciousness and called 911, she said. Id had a cardiac arrest and my heart had stopped beating. I was apparently a goner and Im not a goner any more. Im grateful, most definitely. Kellogg, for his part, was grateful too. Youre lucky if you have one (lifesaving event) in your entire career, he said.

The first case

Scientists estimate that over 50,000,000,000 people have been born on this earth, and no two are exactly alike.

If you are suffering with chronic health conditions, you need a health care provider who will look at you as the unique person that you are, no cookie-cutter approaches. At Puckette Chiropractic and Kinesiology, we test people metabolically, neurologically and structurally, then tailor a treatment plan specic to their individual needs and history. Find out what is possible for you

At 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 12, Kellogg was the first-responder to a page for an emergency assist at 201 Van Buren St. in Stoughton. There he discovered Gillian Reedy on the floor, unconscious and not breathing. Reedys husband, David, had called 911. Kellogg said he checked for a pulse and found none. He then began to administer CCR (cardiocerebral resuscitation), an alternative to the better known CPR, in which continuous chest compressions are administered, eliminat ing the need for mouth-tomouth resuscitation. Kellogg said within a minute or two other officers and then EMS personnel arrived to take over. He applied the pads of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to Reedys chest and administered a shock to get her heart pumping. Seconds later, he helped lift Reedy and get her to a waiting ambulance. She was transported to Stoughton Hospital and then medflighted to St. Marys Hospital in Madison, where she recovered. At her home on Monday, Reedy, a Stoughton resident and music teacher

The second case

At 7:39 p.m. on Sunday May 19, Kellogg and Sargent were on patrol individually when they were dispatched to 532 Kensington Square, where Harlan Elvekrog had suffered a cardiac arrest. Elevkrog and his family had earlier attended the Syttende Mai parade and had returned home for a meal. Elevkrog, a lifelong Stoughton resident, said Tuesday hed come in the house from the garage and thats about all he can remember. He fell to the floor, hitting his head. His daughter, Amy, called 911. Kellogg was again first on the scene, with Sargent just seconds behind. Sargent had been on patrol in his squad car when he received the emergency radio dispatch. Officer Kellogg got there probably five seconds before I did, Sargent recalled. I arrived as he was exiting his car. We ran in and one of the family members was performing CPR. I took over and started doing chest compressions, and Officer Kellogg hooked up the AED. Then we shock advised and delivered the shock, and then members of the

EMS/Fire showed up and we kind of just worked as a team and went from there. The police report stated that Elvekrogs lips had begun to turn a bluish color. Stoughton Firefighter Mike Lamberty was the next responder to arrive on scene. He assisted Sargent in administering CCR. Stoughton EMS then arrived and took over with their equipment. Elvekrog was lifted, placed on a cot and put in an ambulance. He was transported to Stoughton Hospital and later to St. Marys Hospital. Elvekrog said he remained unconscious for a couple of day and then woke up. Im sort of a miracle person, he said. Most people didnt think Id make it up at St. Marys. He said hes had a heart murmur for quite a few years, but this was his first heart attack. Im feeling great now, he said. So far, everything is good. I would like to thank everybody. They did a tremendous job. Sargent said events unfold so quickly during a medical emergency that theres not much time to think. He said its hard to know whether a patient will survive anthing can happen in the ambulance and everyone on the scene is a bit shocked. Youve got family members there who are pretty traumatized by what just happened, he explained. And everybody is kind of stunned. Weve been trained a lot on it, so when you get there you just kind of fall back on your training. EMS gets there pretty quick, so a lot of times they get there and theyre more trained than we are. It was definitely a feel-good moment. Elvekrog said hell have to take it easy for a week or two but hopes to return to work soon. He works parttime for a moving company in Madison, but he doesnt do the heavy lifting. He works more in the administrative part of the business, he said.

Many hands help save lives

Stoughton Area Emergency Medical Services director Cathy Rigdon says police officers often provide exceptional help with their first response to the scene prior to EMS arrival. Stoughton Area EMS is a volunteer department and has the highest annual call volume for a volunteer service in Dane County. We respond on average to four calls per day, Rigdon said. With that being said, Stoughton Police Department is often a big part of that process. When a 911 call is paged, Rigdon said, the Stoughton PD Dispatcher notifies SPD officers of the call type and location. SPD routinely will respond directly to the scene prior to EMS going in route. SPD will provide assistance, oxygen, secure the scene and obtain patient information. In addition, they help in patient lifts and transfers. On the most serious calls, such as a PNB (pulseless non-breather), their role as the first response agency to the scene is critical for helping to strengthen the chain of survival in victims of cardiac arrest, Rigdon wrote in an email to the Hub. They arrive on scene, complete a quick assessment, start CPR/CCR. They will have their oxygen bag with equipment and their AED (Automatic External Defibrillator). They will apply the pads of the AED on the patient and provide shocks, when indicated. In the meantime, there are other members of EMS who will hear the page and respond to the incident. At times, Stoughton Fire is also alerted and they will come to provide assistance. The point is, these are challenging calls with only minutes to spare, many things to get done, many hands needed and transport. The patients in sudden cardiac arrest need three things: CPR/ CCR, defibrillation (when acceptable) and rapid transport to Stoughton Hospital for additional extensive medical treatment, interventions and care. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of the assistance given by the members of Stoughton Police Department, Rigdon wrote.

Norse Star racks up awards

Its been a banner year for the Stoughton High School newspaper, The Norse Star. The newspaper and its staff collected a total of 20 awards in two different high school newspaper competitions, including a first place in a General Excellence Category (Classroom-based publication, Group B, enrollment of 500 or more) at the Wisconsin Newspaper Association Foundations of High School Better Newspaper Contest. First, The Norse Star collected 12 awards in the Northeastern Wisconsin Scholastic Press Association Conference April 17 at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, according to a news release. In the writing division, Tim Melland took second for Editorial; Amy Chart took second and Tanner Novotny took third for Column-Humorous; Chart took first and Cassi Ott took second for Column-Serious; Nisrine Taamallah and Annalise Panthofer took first for InDepth Reporting I; and the Norse Star Staff took first and second for In-Depth Reporting II. In the design division, Danny Mork took first for Editorial Cartoons; and the Norse Star Staff took second and Quinn Wermuth took third for Page Design/Layout. In the publication division, the Norse Star staff received Blue Ribbon Honors for medium schools published through a journalism class. The NEWSPA conference is held each spring and brings more than 400 high school journalists and their advisers to the UW Oshkosh campus to learn from more than 40 professionals. The staff followed that up with eight more awards, including the General Excellence honor, in the WNA awards. In that competition, Mork took home a thirdplace award in graphics for CSI: Madison. Chart captured a third place in Investigative Reporting for The view from behind bars, while Ott took a third award in Column Writing for Gray Matter: The Truth About Living With Cancer. Ellie Greenlergot an honorable mention in in Photography for Melting Metal, while the pairs of Ott and Erica Keenan and Amara McCune and Annalise Panthofergot honorable mentions in the Investigative Reporting category for Spooked at school and To the end of the earth, respectively. Taamallah also took an honorable mention in Investigative Reporting for Starving for perfection.

Annexation: Plan would create town island WERE

Continued from page 1 the annexation petition was prepared by the developer and the petitioners, and that the map submitted to the DOA didnt show the property being cut off from the rest of the town. The city reviewed the petition and didnt see any problems with the legal description or map that was included in the petition, Scheel said. On the map, it doesnt look like there are any deficiencies, Scheel said. Scheel said there might have been a misunderstanding based on the tax description of the island property and adjacent properties about how far the parcels extended into the Hwy. 138 right of way. Scheel said its possible that the properties extend into the center of the right of way, rather than the edge, and therefore the annexation would cut off a thin sliver of land that would keep the island parcel contiguous to the town. Scheel said after the meeting that he was unsure how or when the city might adjust the annexation plans to comply with the state standards. Were trying to understand what the process might be and what direction people want to go, Scheel said. Theres a lot of trying to figure out what steps make the most sense to go forward. The letter from the DOA states that the petition could be approved as-is if the city and Town of Rutland have an intergovernmental agreement regrading land use plans beyond the city borders. However, no such agreement exists for the two municipalities despite some previous discussions, Town of Rutland clerk Dawn George told the Hub. Once the petition has been amended to meet state standards, it will have to go through the Planning Commission approval process. That could be at the next commission meeting in July, or at a special meeting if the changes are made sooner. If the planning commission recommends approving the petition, the Common Council would then weigh in on the matter. A two-thirds majority is required to approve the annexation petition. The Kettle Park West project, led by Forward Development Group, is planned to be a mixture of commercial, office and residential properties. The detailed neighborhood plan calls for the first phase to include a large anchor retail space with several outlots for other businesses. Later phases could include office space and residential lots. The city approved a preannexation agreement with the developer that called for about $12.6 million in public improvements over the course of three phases. The developer is seeking up to $7 million in Tax Incremental Financing to facilitate those improvements. Big ticket items include intersection and road improvements along Hwy. 138 and Hwy. 51, storm water management and professional service fees.

Letters to the editor

Olsons death is a loss for many

On May 28, many Stoughtonites lost a dear friend. I personally knew Paul Olson for more than 65 wonderful years. We had a mutual interest in antiques and a true friendship. He was first of all, a Christian a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. Secondly, he was the best funeral director any family could want in a time of sorrow. My family and myself were blessed and touched by his love of all our needs. He was always willing to help. His love of gardening was apparent by many a bouquet that found its way to my mothers parlor table from his garden in the summer. He kept my dad busy refinishing beautiful antique pieces of furniture. He kept me busy looking for choice antique pieces of furniture, porcelain and glassware. I knew in advance just what Paul would like in an antique it had to be the quality. Paul was so kind and cheerful and always willing to pay good prices for his choice pieces. He made sure his family members patronized our trade and sent many antique lovers to our door by his referral. I will miss him but someday soon we shall be reunited in the heavenly kingdom for eternity. I wrote a letter to the Hub in mid-April. Paul read it and called me to tell me how much he enjoyed its message. He asked me to come and see him. He passed away just a few days after his phone call, yet my message is Gods message today and forever. Neal Larson Stoughton

Special assessments are double charges

As you might know, some residents are being charged with a special assessment to pay for half of the damages done to our curbs, gutters, sidewalks and driveway aprons by the city while work is being done on the roads in front of our homes. We already pay into a fund to the Stoughton Utilities to cover any costs like this. We are being charged twice by our city for the same work that is being done. This special assessment has to be stopped because we should not have to pay twice for the same work to be done to our streets. How can our city council even think that this special

Better sleep makes for a healthier life

the weekend unless you sleep 20 hours and thats not going to happen! So how do you know if you suffer from just sleep debt or a sleep disorder? Your best bet is to ask your spouse or friends (assuming youre sharing sleeping quarters) if you were snoring or restless overnight. Another way is to pay attention to how your bed looks when you wake up. Generally, if your bed covers are askew in the morning, chances are you are moving around a lot and could be restless. If your body is constantly aching, or maybe youre not getting over illness as quickly as you once did, those are also signs youre not getting the restorative sleep you need. Blood pressure is also an indicator. If your blood pressure always has been in the normal range but starts to creep up or is uncontrollable with medication, you could have a sleep disorder. If you are taking medications for diabetes, reflux or atrial fibrillation and they are not being controlled, this could be an indication of untreated sleep apnea. Additionally, if you feel fatigued even after a good nights sleep you might be waking up throughout the night without even knowing it. If you or your spouse suspects you have a sleep disorder, talk with your family physician or call a Sleep Disorders Center. A sleep specialist can further evaluate your problem and can suggest a treatment or may prescribe a machine called a CPAP to help you sleep better. Diane Reed is a sleep technologist at Stoughton Hospital Sleep Disorders Center.

The keys to more Zs

1. Set regular times for going to bed and for getting up (including weekends). 2. If you nap during the day, dont allow yourself more than 30 minutes of sleep time. 3. Stop consuming alcoholic beverages 4 hours before bedtime and dont smoke at all. Alcohol does have an immediate sleep inducing effect, but once the effect wears off the effect turns into a stimulant meaning you wake up again! 4. Avoid caffeine beginning 6 hours before bedtime. This includes not only coffee and tea, but many soft drinks and chocolate. 5. Avoid heavy, spicy, or sugary foods starting 4 hours before bedtime. A light snack just before retiring is okay. 6. Exercise regularly, but not right before bed. 7. Use comfortable bedding and a good quality mattress. The mattress should be large enough to share with your bed partner. Pets should sleep in their own beds at night. 8. Find a comfortable temperature setting for your bedroom (around 68 degrees) and keep the room well ventilated. 9. Block out all distracting noise and eliminate as much light as possible. 10. Reserve your bed for sleep. It is not an office, a workroom, a movie theater, or TV viewing venue.

Film screening to benefit Badger Honor Flight

The Stoughton Opera House will host a fundraising benefit showing of the renowned documentary film Honor Flight: One Last Mission, at 7 p.m. Friday, June 14. The Honor Flight Network a nonprofit organization started in Springfield, Ohio in 2005 aims to give veterans a final mission: fly them to Washington, D.C. to see the WWII memorial that was built in 2004. The film follows a Milwaukee affiliate as they rally to make these flights a reality for their heroes. Many local veterans have traveled to Washington, D.C. as part of this program, but many more still have the opportunity to go. Katherine Christenson of Stoughton helped her 89-year-old father, William Ashley, fly on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial in 2012. Ashley served in the Army Air Force 1944-46 repairing P-52's at a Florida air base. It was such a powerful and wonderful experience

A resource fair June 20 will offer help for those who identify themselves as homeless and give tips on how community members can help. One organizer of the event Sherri Schroeder, a social worker for Stoughton United Ministries (SUM), said the organization felt the best way to use their small amount of funding was to hold a community event to increase awareness about homelessness in Stoughton. We wanted to reach people who are homeless, are facing homelessness in the near future, and those who want to help their neighbors, Schroeder said. Schroeder said that at any given time there are 20-30 students in the Stoughton Area School District that are homeless. According to the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, homelessness is defined as an individual whose primary residence is in a supervised public or private facility or is in transitional housing. SUM is a nonprofit organization that was formed as a resource for struggling community members to go to for assistance. The organizations strategy for giving help to those in need is a two-part system. There is an Affordable Transport

been an ongoing problem for more than 30 years, Schroeder said. The recent spike in need for services is what prompted SUM to hold the resource fair. The resource fair is organized by Stoughton United Ministries and Stoughton Area Resource Team (START). Representatives from organizations that are located all around Dane County will provide information booths at the resource fair, with the ultimate goal being an increased awareness of types of assistance available. Organizations like Porchlight and Salvation Army, the organizations that run shelters in Madison, and START are a few of those expected to be in attendance. The resource fair, held noon to 3 p.m. at the Stoughton Fire Department, will offer individuals and families information and guidance on how they can get help with financial budgeting, apply for emergency assistance and get information on many other services. Schroeder encouraged anyone and everyone to attend, especially those who are looking to help others. There will also be a follow-up meeting to further discuss the problem of homelessness, with the time and place yet to be determined.

Thought for the week

Shame and fear are the twin enemies of feeling worthy. Most of us feel that there are certain things that we dare not share with others, dark secrets so shameful that were we to reveal them no one would accept us. But, all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and we should not doubt that God loves us even so. Gods making us was no mistake, and he certainly knew the many ways in which we would fall short. Gods only requirement for us is that we have the courage to confess our sins and own up to our shortcomings. Confessing those sins and shortcomings to our fellow man takes even more courage than confessing them to God, but the payoff is worth it. We will thereby discover which of our friends and family members will accept us just as we are. One of the earliest meanings of the word courage is to speak ones mind, or literally to tell ones heart. And indeed, courage is required to tell ones heart. Remember, though, that being worthy is less about being blameless and more about opening our heart to others and trusting that they will accept us. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. James 5:16

Relay: Survivors tout support

system in fight against cancer
Continued from page 1 beat this, Bloyer said. Yet he was not alone in his journey. He had his wife, Pat, and his two children his son, Connor, who will be attending Winona State University in the fall, and his daughter, Caitlin, a student at Carroll University. Part of the story he can tell is what challenges caregivers face. The caregivers a lot of time get forgotten, he said, although the caregivers also can face a tough road, too, in part because they can sometimes get frustrated because they feel like there is nothing they can do. Yet Bloyer can testify to the importance of the support they provide. Ive had a great support system, he said. That, too, is part of his story. Another part is what he has learned and the perspective he has gained during his battle with cancer. He re-established friendships that he had let slip. He learned to worry less about things like work. His advice to others: Try to find happiness in every day. Live your life, not your cancer, he said. Talk with someone a counselor or a therapist about your fears. Bloyer, along with Gray and Williams, will help launch Fridays opening ceremonies for the Relay. The event raises tens of thousands of dollars for cancer research and is expected to draw more than 1,000 people between Friday and Saturday. Opening ceremonies start at 6 p.m. Friday, June 14. The survivors lap, where the honorary survivors speak and then walk around the trail, follows. The caregivers lap, where anyone who ever cared for someone with cancer walks a lap, comes afterward. The luminaria ceremony, where the walking path is lined with decorated white paper bags containing candles that are lit Friday evening, is to start at 10 p.m. The ceremony is to remember those who have battled cancer and those who were lost to the disease. Teams then walk the path throughout the night and into Saturday. Activities are ongoing through the night for those who want to head out to the park. The fundraiser culminates with closing ceremonies that start at 9 a.m. Saturday. I hope people come out to the Relay, Bloyer said. I hate to say it is a fun event, but it is fun. And its another way to show support that those who battle the disease need. That support helps, he said. It makes a big difference.

Weve also introduced natural burial and cremation products to our offerings, Cress said. Bill Cress believes that the benefits of being a business owner in the Stoughton community are the Stoughton residents themselves. They are active in their community, take pride in the city, and the city government is responsive to its citizens and to small business. The families in the Stoughton area are kind and are appreciative of good and compassionate service, Cress said. Sherry and I have lived in Stoughton since 1992 and have raised our three boys here. We are members of Christ Lutheran Church, Im a member of the Stoughton Lions Club, and Sherry is a 23 year cancer survivor and has been active with the Stoughton-Oregon-McFarland Relay for Life for 19 years. Cress Funeral Service has been proud sponsors of the event for many years. Cress commented. Our son Matthew followed in his fathers and grandfathers footsteps and became the third generation funeral director graduating from Worsham Collage of Mortuary Science in 2011 and became a licensed funeral director with Cress in 2012. Several of my staff live here also. We have a good and active school system, excellent city services and library, friendly and caring neighbors and a diverse group of businesses serving our community, Cress added. We are just a few minutes from your door, said Cress. We live here, we are your neighbor. We are here to provide answers and solutions, ideas and education about funeral possibilities and beyond. Our Circle of Care is in place and designed to give every piece of our expertise to all of the communities we serve

Cress completed a multi-year remodeling project several years ago that included a completely redecorated interior to fit the 1906 period in which it was built, as well as a new parking lot and freshly painted exterior. Our crematories are the only ones that are certified by the Cremation Association of North America and are operated by a certified cremationist and licensed funeral director, Cress added. The cremation areas are family rooms that allow for gathering, reflection and engagement in whatever way that is comforting and supportive of the healing process each person must move through. Cress is the only funeral and cremation service provider in this area that has facilities that are designed to allow families to care for their loved one until the process is complete. The death of someone you love will be one of worst moments in your life, said Cress. At Cress we realize this and thats why we are here for you and your family. You can lean on us, well walk with you and help you anyway we can. Funerals have changed quite a bit over the years, but the importance of memorializing our loved ones, both as individuals and as a community, has never been greater. We know the value of listening, and that every family is different. Service means understanding a familys needs and responding to them in a caring and creative way. It has been an honor for us to have served Stoughtons families over the years. said Cress. As a locally owned and operated business, we are able to offer a greater level of service and understanding to Stoughton families. We know Stoughton, and Stoughton knows us.

A Badger South Conference championship, a regional title, the first state berth since 1986 and a trip to the semifinals to tie the best finish by a Stoughton baseball team. It will be in memories of the players and coaches and be placed on plaques and walls forever. Although the season came to a crashing halt with a 15-5 loss in five innings to Sun Prairie in the WIAA Division 1 state semifinals in Grand Chute, senior third baseman Zach Bower said he believes the accomplishment raises the bar for future players on the team. It is great to make history, to come back to school, look up on the wall and see that 13 up there, Bower said. I hope they can keep doing it and keep that tradition alive at Stoughton. But to put a trip to state at Time Warner Cable Field in Fox Cities Stadium in perspective, one must pause, take a deep breath and look around. Assistant athletic director and Stoughton wrestling co-head coach Bob Empey told baseball head coach Jeremy Dunnihoo to do just that as the players hugged and said their goodbyes as a member of the team. Coming in, there are photos in the newspaper, videos on the Web, chatter by bubblers and at the local high school hangout. People are tweeting, retweeting and sharing. But still, all the hype doesnt prepare you for the experience, Dunnihoo said. The field is beautiful. There are big crowds cheering. What every little play means you cant prepare

Senior Zach Bower (10) waves to the crowd after Stoughton executed a game-winning suicide squeeze in the WIAA Division 1 state quarterfinal against Neenah to win 4-3. The win was the second state win in school history, and the first since its only other appearance in 1986.

So it seemed fitting that in the bottom of the inning, he would be up with the bases loaded and one out with a chance to win the game. As Gerber took off for home, Rosowski put down a picture-perfect bunt to the first-base side to send him in safely and start a chain Vikings squeeze Neenah reaction of dogpiles that traveled Rosowski struck out Neenah from home plate all the way to first

I have been up in a couple of situations where we needed to get a base hit or I needed to get a bunt down, so I had a feeling during the game that I would get my chance to get a winning run or a big play, Rosowski said. The strikeout kind of fueled it, and then coach always

State: 2013 Vikings join the 1986 baseball team as the only ones with state wins
Continued from page 10 has that trick up his sleeve. It felt good to execute and get the job done. Neenah (12-17) got itself in trouble in the seventh when an error by second baseman Alex Nicholson to put Gerber on first for the Vikings (15-10). Bower then bunted him over to second. Both runners were safe, however, when Rockets pitcher Brett Grafmeier threw the ball into center field. Dunnihoo then began to contemplate his options, and he said he had a feeling Rosowski would get up to the plate with a chance to win it. I was kind of going through my head when (sophomore Cade Bunnell) came up with first and second to bunt them over, and I figured they would walk (senior first baseman Tony Volk), Dunnihoo said. And then PJ is a good bunter, and he did what he needed to do. Gerber (2-for-3) didnt go on the first pitch, but he said he kept nudging Dunnihoo to give him the sign. Once Dunnihoo did, Gerber was off and running and looked to have home stolen, regardless of the bunt by Rosowski. Dunnihoo said it was a good feeling to see the Vikings execute a play they practice everyday. You see all 16 guys surrounding me and patting me on the head and its awesome, Gerber added. Then you go down to Pete and patting him on the head there is nothing better. They were fortunate to avoid some potential drama, though. After the suicide squeeze, neither Bower nor Volk (2-for-2) touched the next base. So if Neenah had thrown the ball to third and then second, the run would not have counted and the Vikings and Rockets would and two in the fourth to make it 13-3. Sun Prairie is a team you cant give extra outs to, Dunnihoo said. We battled back once, but we didnt battle back enough bounce back from those mistakes and walks. They are a great team, and they are here for a reason. Stoughton did have a twoout rally in the fourth when Gerber reached on a bunt single and Bower hit a bloop single to center field. Bunnell followed with a high chopper over Sun Prairie first baseman Mike Garvey to score Gerber. The Cardinals came right back with two runs in the fifth, however, to push the score to 15-4. That meant Stoughton needed two runs in the bottom of the fifth to extend its season. Senior center fielder Connor Bloyer, junior second baseman Austin Miller and senior right fielder Nick Krantz reached to load the bases with two outs. Gerber then roped an RBI single into right field to cut the score to 15-5, but that was all the Vikings could muster in the final inning as Sun Prairie 10-runned them. We just battle back-andforth and fight for everything, Bower said. Hopefully, they can bring it back next year, come back here and win it all.

have gone to extra innings. Luckily for Stoughton, Neenah walked off the field while the umpires remained in case there was an appeal, and the game was eventually made official. Neenah struck first in the top of the second inning with an RBI groundout by first baseman Sam Erickson to score right fielder Spencer Miller. Stoughton came back with two runs in the bottom of the inning to take a lead it wouldnt relinquish until the sixth inning. Junior center fielder Chris Lund stole second with one out, and senior second baseman Dane Schultz singled to put runners on the corners with one out. Gerber followed with an RBI double to tie the game, and Bower reached on an error to score Schultz. The Vikings added a run in the fourth. Schultz walked with one out, and Gerber

reached safely on an error by the pitcher that moved Schultz to third. Bower followed with an RBI groundout to make it 3-1. Neenah cut the lead to 3-2 in the fifth with a lead-off triple by Erickson and an RBI sacrifice fly by third baseman AJ Rustick. Neenah then tied the game in the sixth with a single by shortstop Matt Gruse, who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt. After a groundout moved Gruse to third and Miller was walked, left fielder Nate Penn roped an RBI single to center to make it 3-all. Lund was able throw out Miller at third to end the inning and the threat, however.

Rosowski picked up the win on the mound. He went seven innings and allowed three earned runs on five hits. He struck out four and walked one. Grafmeier picked up the loss for Neenah. He went 6 1/3 innings and allowed one earned run on seven hits. He struck out six and walked three.

Historical season ends

Things didnt start well later in the night in the state semifinal against defending state champion Sun Prairie (24-2). A couple of errors spotted the Cardinals an early 2-0 lead. But Stoughton was ready to answer in the bottom of the first. Gerber reached on an error, and Bower was safe on a fielders choice that put two runners on base with no

outs. Bunnell followed with a sacrifice bunt attempt that turned into a single to load the bases. Volk then hit an RBI single, and Rosowski and senior designated hitter Zach Nyhagen both added RBI groundouts to give Stoughton a 3-2 advantage after one inning. But that momentum quickly faded as an error, three walks and a hit batter in the second led Sun Prairie to three runs and a lead it would never relinquish. The Cardinals added six in the third

decreases for Stoughton
Continued from page 1 program) captured some (students), he also said. In years past, the McFarland and Oregon school districts, especially the McFarland virtual school, have often accounted for the highest number of applications to open enroll out of Stoughton. Of the 85 students who applied to open enroll out of Stoughton next year, half applied to virtual schools, and a majority of those were for McFarlands virtual academy. The district this year joined the JEDI Network, a nonprofit consortium of Wisconsin school districts that offers both a full virtual high school and individual online courses for members, in part to recapture some of those students who were applying elsewhere. Student enrollment has funding implications for school districts under the states current finance scheme. Erica Pickett, the districts director of business services, noted in an email to the Hub that for every student who leaves the district, Stoughton pays the nonresident district a tuition set by the state, and vice-versa. For the current school year, that tuition came to $6,335 per student. Next years estimate is $6,448, Pickett wrote. The district earlier this school year surveyed families who live inside the school district but either homeschool their children or send them to school elsewhere. That survey found 49 percent of the families who responded said they would not consider sending their child to Stoughton schools, while 45 percent said they would and another 6 percent said they either did not know or had no opinion.

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

BOARD OF EDUCATION Stoughton Area School District REGULAR MEETING May 6, 2013


Facilities Committee chair, Brett Schumacher reported the committee met Monday, April 29. The committee discussed, HS exterior and District Safety Study. The Athletic Facilities study was tabled until a later date. Policy Committee Meeting - May 13, 2013, 5:30 p.m. Policy Committee Chair, Amy McFarland reported the next Policy Committee meeting will take place Monday, May 13 at 5:30 p.m. in the upper conference room. DISCUSSION/ACTION: Pool Wages A motion was made by Donna Tarpinian, seconded by Brett Schumacher, and carried unanimously to approve pool employee wages increasing by $0.15 (fifteen cents) across the board effective July 1, 2013. DISCUSSION: High School Exterior Concept Brett Schumacher and Dennis Barkenhagen reviewed high school exterior concepts presented to the Facilities Committee April 29. Dennis briefly reviewed the 10 year maintenance plan presented to the Board February 4, 2013. The ten year plan includes updating the exterior of the high school over the next 3-5 years. Parts of the exterior facade are falling away and need to be replaced. This will be addressed this summer. Dennis is bringing the Facilities Committee high school front entrance recommendation of option A to the board. All planned maintenance items fall within the budgeted allocations for district building maintenance. Safety Recommendations Earlier this year, a team made up of three members of the Stoughton Police Department and three school administrators, toured every building to review the safety and security of all district buildings. Dennis Barkenhagen, who also serves as the district safety administrator, reviewed this joint task forces recommendations presented to the Facilities Committee. They are: 1. Construct secure entrance with a check window at River Bluff, Fox Prairie, Kegonsa and Sandhill $168,000 2. Construct secure entrance with a doorway entrance to the main office at River Bluff, Sandhill, Kegonsa and Fox Prairie $174,000, 3. Install voice/video intercom system in all facilities main entrances $15,000, 4. Install video surveillance system at all schools $90,000, 5. Install audio/ video intercom with door release at receiving doors for Fox Prairie, Kegonsa, Sandhill and River Bluff $14,000, and, 6. Install numbers on all exterior building windows and master keys in each office for all rooms $900. Options 5 and 6 are being installed this summer within the maintenance budget. The Facilities Committee recommended also installing option 3. Dennis also reviewed some recent training changes for lock down situations. Staff will need additional training to identify people coming into the building and how to let them in. If option 3 is approved parents and families will need to be informed of the changes to gain entry into buildings. We need to be careful not to unduly inconvenience those coming to our schools during the school day. Option 3 does not include a recording option this would add $3 to $4 thousand dollars to each building expense. The high school entrance windows will be replaced this summer with a stronger glass and pass through window for the attendance window. Dennis also reviewed after hour building access. President Menzer asked Principal Fred Trotter to respond to concerns raised by board members. He reiterated safety is very important, training and informing parents will ease transition to this new precaution. All building doors are marked inside and outside. We regularly conduct safety drills in all buildings. After considerable discussion this item will come back to the Board at

a later date for a decision on which of the first four options will be installed/ approved. Board members want time to think about restricting entryways in all buildings. Common Core and Smarter Balanced Assessments Judy Singletary, Director of Curriculum and Instruction presented Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Smarter Balanced Assessments information to the Board. The CCSS new standards will be implemented statewide for the 2014-15 school year. The Smarter Balanced Assessments will replace the WKCE tests in 2014-15 also. Judy reviewed the differences in how we will teach subjects and how we will test in these subjects. Educator Effectiveness Governor Walker and State Superintendent Tony Evers formed a joint task force to research and develop new educator evaluation standards and tools. Districts are mandated to implement these new standards by the 201415 school year. SASD will join districts across the state to pilot the new educator evaluation system next year. This will enable Stoughton to better understand and assist in shaping this evaluation tool before the mandatory implementation deadline. These new measures will be used for the school report cards also. We will use Teachscape as the evaluation tool. Each evaluator will be required to become a certified Teachscape evaluator. Teachscape is web based. Stoughton will attend a Teachscape training scheduled in June. This evaluation requirement will be funded by each district, no state funding available to pay for this. A Board Management Team meeting may be scheduled this summer to further understand this required evaluation mandate. FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS: Board Retreat will likely be scheduled in June, Board Management Team meeting in July - Teacher Effectiveness, Review of the WASB referendum timeline we have been using, and Teacher appreciation week will be recognized with the annual delivery of cookies to each building Wednesday. A motion was made by Brett Schumacher, seconded by Joe Freye, and carried unanimously to adjourn at 9:14 p.m. Tina Hunter, Clerk Published: June 13, 2013 WNAXLP
