The Straits awaits:

PGA Championship returns to Whistling Straits

KOHLER, Wis. – The PGA Cham- pionship, the annual culmination of golf’s four major champi- onships, celebrates its 92nd an- niversary in 2010, with its second visit to Whistling Straits in Kohler. Hundreds of thou- sands of golf fans lined the fair- ways during the 2004 PGA Championship to view the strongest, all-professional international field in major championship golf. This month all eyes will be focused on the shores of Lake Michigan, as past champions Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, and Padraig Harrington descend upon Whistling Straits to compete for the coveted Wanamaker Trophy. To purchase tickets to the 92nd PGA Championship visit www.pga2010.com or call (800) PGA-GOLF. For the first time ever at a PGA Champi- onship, each paid adult admission will receive up to four complimentary junior admissions, for chil- dren age 17 and under. The family-friendly ticket option for the season’s final major at Whistling Straits focuses on attracting more youth to the ex- citement of professional golf. Complimentary junior tickets are available onsite at the Will Call Office at the Championship entrance on the day of admission. Practice rounds, run Monday through Wednes- day, offer spectators the only opportunity to bring cameras and to seek autographs from the players. Practice Round Tickets start at $30. Looking for a first-class experience at the Championship? Each Wanamaker Club Package will give its holder access to all seven days of the Championship, a copy of the official PGA Cham- pionship Journal, parking, and access to the Wanamaker Club. This lively, air-conditioned pavilion will be located within the Championship Village at Whistling Straits. Televisions, an expansive patio and a spirited atmosphere make the Wanamaker Club a fantastic spot to take in the Championship experience. Wis- consin themed food and beverages are available at an additional cost inside the Wanamaker Club. Ticket price is $450. Event information is included at right, and for more information visit www.pga2010.com or call the championship office at 920-565-4300. Follow the event on Facebook at

From the Village Board President

VILLAGER KOHLERVILLAGER.COM From the Village Board President Greetings, The new zero depth entrance children’s pool,

Greetings, The new zero depth entrance children’s pool, which opened in June, is seeing heavy use due to the many warm summer days we’ve had. If you have youngsters and haven’t used the new children’s pool, I’d encourage you to do so. Your Kohler Village Board has received nothing but positive comments about the new children’s pool. One only has to be in the vicinity of School Street to see the pop- ularity and enjoyment it brings to all who use it. Recently, a neighbor of mine told me his wife and daughter utilized the pool eight days in a row. Wow, this is fantastic! The finishing touch for the pool project will be the planting of trees and shrubs next to the perimeter fence. Included in this plan, ap- proved unanimously by the Kohler Village Board, are arborvitaes, dwarf Lilacs and alpine currents. This will enhance the pool curb appeal, which is already a great addi- tion to the Memorial Hall complex. I’m happy to report that the installation of the air conditioning system in the Memo- rial Hall Theater has been completed. Spe- cial thanks are extended to those contractors who worked diligently to make this become a reality. This will insure a comfortable cli-

mate for the 900-1000 guests expected for the PGA Distinguished Service Award Cer- emony on the evening of August 11th. The benefits of the air conditioned theater will serve the needs of the Village, the Kohler School District, The Kohler Company and other entities for many years to come. This is only the first of many events which will benefit from this enhancement which has been talked about for many years and is now finally a reality. Along with the Village Board, it is my hope that you and your families are having an enjoyable summer. The weather has been advantageous for outdoor activities, such as the numerous programs offered by our recre- ation department, 4th of July festivities, fam- ily outings and vacations. It’s hard to believe that August is upon us with thoughts of the youth heading back to school shortly. Enjoy the rest pf the summer – knowing that it always passes too quickly! Don’t forget to attend the PGA Village of Kohler Concert at the Ravine Park bowl on Friday, August 13th.

Ask Rocky
I am entering a facility
for short term rehab.
What rights am I giving
up during my stay?
Residents in nursing homes have no
fewer rights than anyone else. In 1987,
Congress enacted the Nursing Home Re-
form Law that has since been incorporated
into the Medicare and Medicaid regula-
tions.
When you enter a facility, whether it be
for short term rehab, long term care or a
respite stay, you have rights guaranteed to
you by state and federal laws.
Your rights strongly emphasize individ-
ual dignity and self-determination, promot-
ing your independence and enhancing your
quality of life.
The resident’s rights must be displayed
in the nursing facility along with a contact
number for the state’s Long Term Care Om-
budsman (a third-party resident advocate).
Each county has an Ombudsman Program
with trained ombudsmen who can help with
questions or problems encountered during
your nursing home stay, and to assist you
in exercising your rights.
The resident council and family council
also play an important part in promoting
and protecting residents' rights in long term
care facilities. These councils usually meet
monthly with involvement from key per-
sonnel from the facility.
Nursing home residents have the free-
dom to exercise their rights as residents,
and as a citizen of the United States without
fear of discrimination, restraint, interfer-
ence, coercion or reprisal. If an individual
is unable to act on their own behalf, those
rights can be exercised by whoever is ap-
pointed under state law to act on their be-
half.

The Literacy Council Project of the Fam-
ily Resource Center is seeking volunteers in
Sheboygan County to tutor adults in basic
literacy and English language.
“Tutoring adults in basic literacy and
English language skills helps those people
who need communication survival skills to
gain employment, enroll in school, and oth-
erwise succeed in their adopted community,”
says Jo Ann Dent, Coordinator of the Liter-
acy Council Project. Research shows that
an estimated 7,000 Sheboygan County
adults lack the necessary literacy skills to
read the paper or get information from a
brochure. “Economic self-sufficiency is be-
yond the reach of low-literacy individuals
who can’t read, write, or perform basic
math. A continual cycle of low literacy re-
sults in low-paying jobs and inter-genera-
tional poverty,” says Dent.
No prior tutoring or teaching experience
is needed to become a volunteer tutor and tu-
toring times are flexible, to suit tutor and stu-
dent schedules. The Literacy Council will
provide a training session for new tutors on
August 16 and 18, from 5:30-9:30 each
evening. Training sessions are free and pro-
vide new tutors with the resources and infor-
mation they need to get started tutoring an
adult learner.
The Literacy Council Project of the Fam-
ily Resource Center is a volunteer-based
program that provides free, one-on-one lit-
eracy tutoring in Sheboygan County for
adults 18 years old or older. To learn more
about volunteer opportunities or to register
for training, contact the Literacy Council at
frcliteracy@excel.net or 920-457-1888 or

James Scott Weeden

James Scott Weeden passed away peacefully at his Sheboygan home the morning of May 12, 2010, following a brief ill- ness with pneumonia. He was the fifth of five chil- dren born to Eugene “Pat” and the late Mary Ann (Kistner) Weeden, arriving on May 29, 1955. As a child with Down syndrome, Jim was raised at home on Summit Road in Kohler at a time when community acceptance and parental support were just evolving. It truly did take a vil- lage to keep up with Jim during his childhood and adolescent years. Open-hearted neighbors ac- commodated his strong will for independence and a caring Kohler community welcomed him at vil- lage events.

Mary Ann and Pat relied on the emerging She- boygan County Association for Retarded Citizens (now RCS Empowers) for special knowledge and parenting skills. During his childhood, Jim en-

joyed swimming at the Kohler pool, camping with dad and his three brothers, and sharing in their Cub and Boy Scout adventures.

As a young adult, Jim moved to the Sheboy- gan County Comprehensive Health Center, his ver- sion of going away to college just like his four older siblings. His dad took an early retirement and reopened the “Comp” woodworking shop, where

residents attentively cut, sanded (and sanded), glued and painted toy trucks, cars, planes, and the very popular Sheboygan County Holstein dairy cows. In 2002 Sheboygan County closed the Comp. Jim and a few of his friends moved to the smaller Woodland Village, a wing added onto Rocky Knoll Health Care Center. Four years later he was the last resident to leave this new facility when it

closed on October 31, 2006. Jim had developed numerous health and emotional problems over the past few years. Jim then shared a home on West Prospect Avenue in Plymouth until recently when mobility became a problem, and he relocated to 28th Street in Sheboygan. In addition to his father, Jim is survived by his sister Jan Blooming (John Ronayne) of Greenfield; three brothers, Jerome (Ruth) of Valparaiso, Jon (Ann) of Plymouth, and Joel (Ron Holehouse) of

Sacramento; six nieces and nephews; and four grand nieces and nephews; uncle Alan Weeden of

West Bend; and three aunts, Ruth Kistner and Jean Kistner of Sheboygan, and Joan Weeden of Kohler.

BABYSITTING FOR A GOOD CAUSE

By Sydney Yang

I am a highly responsible 15 year old that is raising money for the people of Qaqaqullo, Peru. During the month of Au- gust I will be donating 75% of babysit- ting proceeds to help this community that was devastated by floods.

Please call me for your babysitting needs at 920-912-2052 and help a good cause!

County officials to seek federal funding

By Kevin Struck The Plymouth-to-Kohler rail line reha- bilitation that was reported in the Novem- ber 2009 issue of The Kohler Villager has run into funding difficulties, putting its fu- ture in doubt. To cover the $15 million cost of the reconstruction, officials had been counting on $12 million from the state and $3 million from the City of Plymouth, which had intended to recoup its invest- ment through rail car fees paid by Wiscon- sin & Southern Railroad. While the state money is likely still available, Wisconsin & Southern has decided to allocate more of its capital spending to other projects. As an alternative, Sheboygan County of- ficials are now trying to obtain grant fund- ing from federal sources that would lower the local matching obligation from $3 mil-

lion to a more manageable $600,000. Ply- mouth Mayor Donald Pohlman said other area communities and businesses that would benefit from the reconstructed rail line would be asked to help the City of Ply- mouth come up with the $600,000 match. Because a revitalized rail line would likely help nearby companies reduce ship- ping costs, the project is considered to be a significant economic development initia- tive for the county. There is also the poten- tial for new companies to be attracted to the corridor. The rail line is 14.95 miles long and crosses Highland Avenue in Kohler a few feet north of Highland’s intersection with Lower Falls Road.

Ebben Field renovation back on track

The renovation of Ebben Field has re- sumed this summer with a number of proj- ects in the works projected to be completed in time for the first high school football game on August 27. The drainage system has been over- hauled, and the track will be expanded from six runners lanes to eight. New bleachers for visitors will hold 748 spectators for football and soccer games. A new press box with new public address system will be con- structed, as well as a new concession stand. The new home stadium will have a water tight enclosure beneath it to accommodate storage of school and Village equipment. As- phalt paved walking paths will lead to con- cessions from the stands, and another 12-foot path will be paved from Greenfield Drive through Ebben Field to Woodlake Road. All new lights and light polls will be installed for the football field. Decorative fences, green space, and an asphalt crosswalk to visitors seating are scheduled for the second phase. The project is being financed with the help of a $1 million pledge that was ex- tended by Chair, CEO and President Herbert V. Kohler, Jr. in 2008.

Jenna Peters qualified to advance to the United States Golf Association Girls Junior Championship in Pinehurst, SC, after tying for first with two other golfers in a qualifier at Naperville (Ill) Country Club in June. The USGA Girls Junior Championship, which was held July 19-24 at The Country Club of North Carolina in Pinehurst, is the biggest event that juniors will play in any- where in the country. Jenna wasn’t able to qualify after the second round, with a score of 79-79-158. Peters also played for the U.S. team at the World Youth Team Challenge in Boling- brook, IL, which is styled after the Ryder Cup. The U.S. team took third.

Jenna Peters and Logan Willis both re- ceived All-state recognition by the Wiscon- sin High School Golf Coaches Association. Peters, who will be a senior in the fall, earned second-team All-State honors. It was Jenna’s second time to win an All-State award. Sophomore-to-be Logan Willis was awarded honorable mention. Both also earned Academic All-State recognition. Because the two girls play on the boys team, their All-State honors were added retroactively to the girls’ 2009 fall team. Only three other girls in the history of the All-State awards have earned the honors while playing on a boys team.

Tour de Road America Returns to Elkhart Lake’s Road America on August 20

7th Annual “Bike Ride to Fight Cancer” is a Favorite Among Race Fans and Local

Elkhart Lake, WI – Auto racing fans and cyclists from around the Midwest are anxiously awaiting the return of the Tour de Road America “Bike Ride to Fight Cancer” on August 20, when American Le Mans Se- ries drivers and their teams, fans and fami- lies, local cyclists, and cancer survivors take to the famous 14 turns and hills of the scenic 4.0 mile Road America auto racing circuit to do their part in the fight against cancer. The family-friendly fundraising ride be- gins at approximately 6:15 P.M., following the day’s auto racing activities. The ride is open to cyclists of all abilities, and all kinds of bikes. It’s the highlight of many cyclists’ summer – the chance to pedal a smooth track, with no traffic, as the sun sets over the scenic Kettle Moraine countryside of Elkhart Lake. Professional race car drivers rank Road America circuit as their track, whether they’re competing in their cars, or pedaling for a great cause. The “Bike Ride to Fight Cancer” benefits the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, the official charity of the American Le Mans Series, as well as the Lance Arm- strong Foundation and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. The track challenges drivers and cyclists with its turns and hills, but is still kid and be- ginner-friendly enough for the entire family to participate.

ginner-friendly enough for the entire family to participate. “Some of our fundraisers are just starting out,

“Some of our fundraisers are just starting out, and they might do just half a lap, or maybe just one four-mile lap,” remarked George Siegle, co-founder of the Tour de Road America Foundation. “But the experi- enced cyclists like it too because it’s a good physical challenge, and they try to see if they can make it to ten laps (40 miles) before sun- set.” “Last year a dozen members of Robert- son Racing participated in Tour de Road America in support of the Austin Hatcher Foundation,” recalled American Le Mans Series driver David Robertson. “I physically turned some laps and began to see was how many of the areas around the track are uphill, more uphill than I could feel in the car. We all are looking forward to riding again.” A silent auction of one-of-a-kind motor- sports memorabilia, cycling gear, and local items will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, culminating just before the start of the American Le Mans Series feature race on Sunday afternoon. Although there are no advanced fundrais- ing requirements, participants are strongly encouraged to do so, and can earn exciting incentives for reaching various fundraising levels. For more information, to register for the ride, or to make a contribution, visit www.pelotonride.org.

Don’t let a teen summer romance go bad

by Mary Fontanazza, Director of Advocacy Safe Harbor of Sheboygan County It’s summer! Summertime and young love go together. Teens are meeting new people at summer jobs, parties, at the beach and on family vacations. The result can be a summer romance. Sometimes, what seems idyllic becomes an abusive, controlling rela- tionship where one person is afraid of and intimidated by the other. Usually before there is physical violence in a relationship, a pattern of verbal, emo- tional and sexual abuse is already estab- lished. If a victim attempts to slow things down or expresses feeling uncomfortable with their partner’s behavior, expectations and demands, the abuser rationalizes, justi- fies and increases the abuse and control. Abusers do not accept responsibility for what they do. They blame the victim (what they said, did or did not do), other people (boss, coach, parents, etc.) or other factors (alcohol, drugs, depression, etc.) as the rea- son for the abuse. After an incident, the abuser may apolo- gize profusely, minimize what happened, or deny it occurred. The abuser may say jeal- ousy and possessiveness are signs of love, a sexual assault is justified because they were “turned on” or owed something or minimize physical violence because it was not hitting or did not leave bruises. They may even deny any of their behavior is abusive at all. Abusers can be the quintessential Eddie Haskell, very charming and polite in public, cruel, threatening and controlling when they are alone with their partner. To friends and family they may appear to be friendly, polite and considerate of others, the ideal boyfriend or girlfriend. All of this is confusing for the victim who believes the apologies and excuses. The vic- tim may believe changing themselves or doing things differently (spending more time with their partner, not talking to other girls or guys, having sex, etc.) would make their relationship better. The victim may believe they are at fault, not the abuser, because the person does not act that way with anyone else, only them. Victims may be reluctant to tell anyone because they think no one will believe them because of the abuser’s good public face. Is abuse a part of your teen’s dating rela-

public face. Is abuse a part of your teen’s dating rela- tionship? If your immediate response

tionship? If your immediate response is “no,” it is important to know dating violence can happen to any teen, regardless of the “kind of family” they come from, and it hap- pens in gay and lesbian relationships as well as heterosexual ones. Even if you have a close relationship, there may be things your teen has not shared. Pay attention to their behavior, appearance and their relationships with friends. It might indicate your teen is involved in an abusive relationship if you notice any of the follow- ing.

= Your teen has a friend who constantly checks on them (calls, texts, comes to your home asking where your teen is).

= Your teen shows undue concern about up- setting a friend or makes excuses for a friend’s behavior.

= Your teen gives up activities, interests and friends that had been important to them.

= Your teen shows radical changes in their eating or sleeping habits or school per- formance

= Your teen has a sudden change in appear- ance - eyes are often red and puffy, uses a lot of makeup, wears clothing or changes hair style to conceal injuries

= Your teen has unexplained injuries, bruises or scratches. Now that you are aware of some warning signs, it’s time to have a conversation with your teen about relationships.

First annual Kohler Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome

A walk benefitting Down Syndrome will be held in Kohler on Saturday, September 11, 2010 beginning at Lost Woods Park, 496 Valley Road in Kohler. There will be a one mile walk, with a half mile option. Pre-reg- istration takes place at 10:00 a.m. The walk will begin at 11:00 a.m. The Buddy Walk® was developed by the National Down Syndrome Society in 1995 to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month, which is October, and to promote ac- ceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome. The Buddy Walk® has grown from 17 walks in 1995 to nearly 300 walks planned for 2010 worldwide. In 2009 more than $9.5 million was raised nationwide to benefit local programs and services, as well as the national advocacy and public aware- ness initiatives of NDSS that benefit all in- dividuals with Down Syndrome.

Kohler’s Favorite Band To Benefit School Music

Kohler’s favorite garage band, The Scal- lions, are back together and ready to play a benefit concert for the Kohler Schools music department. The pavilion at Lost Woods Park will be the site of the concert on Satur- day evening, August 7 at 5:00 pm. Dona- tions will be accepted in lieu of admission ($5.00 per person recommended) and atten- dees are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic dinners. In the event of rain, the start time may be delayed to as late as 7 p.m. If the weather is bad all night, the concert will be cancelled. Singer/guitarist Charlie Reinertsen, who attends St. Olaf University in Minnesota, was ready to rock the moment he arrived home. “After spending a year away from the guys, I was really excited to get the band back together and do something that might benefit aspiring musicians,” said Reinertsen. “All four of us have had such a great musical experience in Kohler Schools and some- times it takes time away to fully realize the impact that had on our lives. We’re hoping to raise enough to modify two of the band practice rooms into a recording studio. But whatever we raise will go directly toward the music programs.” “Having recording technology readily available to students gives them greater free- dom in exploring music on their own, which is an entirely different aspect of music,” said singer/guitarist Jordan Kusel. “Recording and technology are ideas that kids can easily relate to, and are a fun way to promote hands-on learning outside of the larger en- sembles.” Kusel will major in Music Com- position at University of North Texas. The band members haven’t lost a step, according to bassist and UW-Milwaukee student Mark Nebel: “We knew when we parted ways for the school year last Septem- ber that we had a good groove going. I was

again reminded of this feeling when we played for the first time in the summer. It re- ally was like we had picked up the guitars right from where we had set them down.” Nebel says they’ll be playing a lot of Scal- lions’ favorites along with some new origi- nals and covers. Drummer Dominic Gischia is also fol- lowing his musical dreams, majoring in Music Education at UW-Whitewater. “I hope people come to this concert not just to support the music department at Kohler High School, but to help kids in the future

get the most they can out of their musical talent,” said Gischia. “All of us have bene- fited greatly from what we have learned through Mr. Tengowski, Mrs. Hucke, and Mrs. Kukla and we want to do our part to help their mission of giving kids the best in music education.” If you can’t make it to the concert, you can still support the cause. Drop a donation in the box in the Kohler High school office during office hours, Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.

Host a foreign exchange student

Sheboygan, WI, Jennifer Watts, an IEC for EF Foundation for Foreign Study, is cur- rently looking for families in the Sheboy- gan/Kohler area to open their hearts and homes to high school foreign exchange stu- dents. As an International Exchange Coordina- tor, Watts matches host families and ex- change students with similar interests and supports both students and families through- out the year. Watts is always available to share in the lives of students and their new families as they experience the life-changing power of cultural exchange. "I can't wait to share these great students with families in town," says Watts. "Having exchange students at our high school will re- ally benefit our kids and the whole commu- nity, as well". EF Foundation students take part in an extensive application process and are se- lected based on their academic achievement, maturity, and adaptability. Students accepted to the EF Foundation program are fully in- sured, speak English, and bring their own spending money. Since 1979, EF Foundation's dedicated team of local coordinators, volunteers, and staff has helped over 100,000 students from nearly 40 countries live and learn in Amer- ica. EF Foundation's unique combination of local support and global reach has made it the largest facilitator of high school ex- change for students coming to the United States. To learn more about hosting an exchange student, please contact Jennifer Watts at 920-248-0072 or Tom or Ann at 866-332-

From Police Chief Bill Rutten:

PGA Championship: The Kohler Police Department again will be quite involved with the upcoming PGA Championship that is being held at Whistling Straits Au- gust 9-15. Despite the actual event being held several miles outside our community, we will be busy with being part of the traf- fic plan, special events being held here, as well as having an influx of tourists due to some famous people being amongst us. The police department has asked for and received additional funds from the Tourism

Committee to pay for our extra expenses during this tournament. You will see extra officers out and about, especially during the events in the Village. The Kohler Po- lice Department’s normal operations will continue during this event, and as always, if you have an issue, call us.

Play Vehicles: The Wisconsin statutes pro- hibits “play vehicles” from being on the roadways in Wisconsin. These include:

skateboards, ripsticks, and scooters. Also, state statutes prohibit any motorized vehicle from being operated on the sidewalks. That would include motorized scooters. This ba- sically leaves only private property where permission has been granted. Please under- stand that the state statutes cannot be changed by Village ordinance, therefore we cannot permit someone to operate in viola- tion. Many of these items are not cheap to purchase. Please be cognizant of the rules prior to purchasing one for the family.

From Public Works Superintendent Bruce Neerhof:

Noxious Weeds/Grass Length: According to Village Ordinance 8.24, it is the duty of every homeowner to destroy all noxious weeds on their property before they go to seed. Examples of noxious weeds are Canadian thistle, English charlock, wild mustard, creeping jenny, goatsbeard and cotton-bearing trees.

Also, grass that exceeds nine inches in height is in violation of this ordinance. The Village gives five days notice to the home- owner to mow their grass. Otherwise, the Village will do it at the expense of the home- owner.

Holiday Garbage Pick-up: When a holiday falls on a Monday all garbage pick-ups will be one day later than scheduled. For exam- ple, Labor Day falls on Monday, September 6; therefore garbage pick-up for that week will be on Wednesday, September 8th.

Recycling: As a reminder, all plastics, glass, aluminum and tin cans should be mixed to- gether and placed in your blue recycling bin. Newspapers and magazines should be placed in a brown paper bag or bundled and tied together. Cardboard should be flattened and cut into 3’ x 3’ pieces. If you have any questions regarding recycling please contact the Department of Public Works at 459-

3881.

Garage Sale Signs: One temporary “garage sale” or “for sale” sign shall be permitted on each lot or parcel. Signs located on public property will be removed by the Public Works or Police Department.

Fire Hydrant Flushing And Water Valve Exercising: During the months of August and September, the Village Public Works Department will be exercising water valves. The Department will also be performing maintenance on fire hydrants and flushing the mains. The work will be performed Monday through Thursday. Residents should be aware that there will be periods of cloudy and discolored water as sediment and mineral deposits in the water-mains are dis- turbed.

2010-2011Middle School/High School Schedules and Locker/Combinations

Middle School and High School parents can access their child’s schedule, locker number and combination through the “Family/Student Access” portion of our website.

1. Go to the school website @ www.kohlerpublicschools.org

2. Click on the family & student access tab on the right

3. Enter your user name and password

4. To view your child’s schedule, click on schedule under general information on the left. Select “Current Year” at the top of the page.

5. Locker numbers and combinations can be found on the student information tab.

Because lockers and combinations are available on-line, locker cards will not be distributed to returning students in Gr. 9-12. Students in Mid- dle School will receive locker cards during MS Orientation on August 31. They will have the opportunity to practice opening their locks at that time. New High School students will receive locker cards during the High School New Student Orientation on August 30.

Please remind your child to write down his/her combination and keep it in their wallet, purse, or in their pocket until they memorize it. Back- packs are not allowed in the classroom and must be locked in the student’s locker during class, SO A BACKPACK IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO KEEP THE COMBINATION! Students should also be reminded not to share their combination with friends!

Parents who are having trouble accessing their child’s information on-line should contact the District Office, 920-459-2920 x 1100, to make sure you are using the correct name and password. Also, families who do not have access to a computer are asked to contact the office to request a locker card and schedule after August 20.

Target School Fundraiser

Did you know that you could be a bene- factor for Kohler Schools just by doing your regular shopping? Target has a great school fundraising program called School Fundraising Made Simple. It works in conjunction with the Target VISA and Target Guest Card. When you use your card to pay for your purchases at Target, Kohler Schools will receive an amount equal to 1 % of your total purchase amount. If you use your Target VISA out- side of Target, the school receives ½ % of your total purchase amount. We will re- ceive a check twice a year for all accumu- lated donations and our school can use the money for field trips, equipment or anything else that our school may need. In addition to free money for our school, there are rewards to you! There is no annual fee with either card and upon approval, you’ll be able to shop for an entire day and receive an additional 10 % off everything you buy! If you use the Target VISA, you’ll be eligible for additional 10% off shopping days, electronic coupons, and special offers. Through the Target VISA pharmacy reward program, you’ll earn additional 10 % off shopping days just by paying for your reg- ular Target pharmacy prescriptions with your Target VISA. Be sure to designate Kohler High School or Kohler Elementary School by calling the toll-free number on the back of your card. If you already have a card and no school designated, please make sure you designate our school by calling 1-800-316-6142 or logging on to Target.com. Thank you for supporting Kohler Schools!

Publishing of honor roll to be studied

Discussion took place at the July 12, 2010 school board meeting re- garding whether the school should continue publishing the quarterly honor roll in The Kohler Villager newspaper. The Curriculum and In- struction Committee raised the issue after hearing concerns from parents that because approximately 75% of of middle-school and high school students are listed in the honor roll, it’s too easy for the approximately 25% who didn’t make the honor roll

to be singled out in a school as small as Kohler. It was also pointed out students are often excluded from the listing for simply missing one assign- ment, or turning it in late. The School Board approved a rec- ommendation for Superintendent Marty Lexmond to research other schools that discontinued publishing its honor roll, to determine what ef- fect it had on grades one way or an- other. A decision will be made before the first quarter honor roll is released.

Students receive President’s Education Awards

by Principal Susan Jaberg

America is a country where people can dream big and reach their full poten- tial through effort and determination. Education helps young people prepare for the opportunities ahead and realize the promise of our great Nation. Since 1983, this award has recognized stu- dents whose outstanding efforts have helped them develop their skills and im- prove their academic performance. To qualify for the President's Award for Educational Excellence, students must have a cumulative grade point av- erage close to 4.0 (one B is allowed), have good attendance, and high achievement test scores. To qualify for the President's Award for Educational Achievement, the students show signif- icant effort and improvement over the course of the school year. Kohler Elementary School had a spe- cial awards presentation in June, 2010 to honor these students. Each student, ranging in grades 5-6, received a certifi- cate signed by President Barack Obama , the Secretary of Education Arne Dun- can, and the Elementary/Middle School Principal, Susan Jaberg. The award winners for the President's

Award for Educational Excellence are:

Acclaimed Kohler Waters Spa launches new signature water therapy rooms

Kohler Waters Spa continues to set the standard in hydrotherapy with innovative water treatments

Kohler Waters Spa upholds its status as a leader in hydrotherapy with the unveiling of new signature wet therapy rooms and pioneering water treatments. Keeping with the focus on the healing properties of water, the Kohler Waters Spa rooms offer experiences that incorporate the latest KOHLER Bathing Products including VibraAcoustic technology that is proprietary to Kohler, KOHLER Custom Vichy shower with hydromassage and a rejuvenated focus on couples services. “Since we are part of Kohler Co. and Kohler has been pioneering the experiential water business for over 135 years, it was only natural that the focus of our new treatments continue to be on the therapeutic and relaxation benefits of water,” said Jean Kolb, Director of Wellness for Kohler Co. and International Spa Association (ISPA) Chairperson. “We are also focusing on the increasing demand by couples to spend more time together and have launched a couples bathing treatment.” The new treatment rooms are appropriately named to match the design and experience – Harmony, Acoustic and Riverbath. The décor of these new spa suites evokes the soothing effects of water with the blue and natural-slate color palate, and each incorporates state-of-the art features that enhance guests’ experiences along with new signature treatments. A few highlights of the renovation and new menu launching July 1, 2010 include:

= With technology that is only available at the Kohler Waters Spa, the Acoustic Room features the KOHLER Fountainhead VibrAcoustic Bath that treats guests to a one-of-a-kind bathing experience with a unique blend of sound vibrations from underwater music that results in an experience that is both invigorating and relaxing.

= For guests who would like to try the healing powers of color with chromatherapy, the Riverbath Room provides a warm environment of eight soft-color hues along with invigorating whirlpool jets that mimic the flow of a river. The Kohler Waters Spa also offers for the first time a couples bathing

A service in this room includes an exfoliation and massage coupled with free time to enjoy the bath and shower – solo or with a significant other – with the Riverbath or Riverbath for

Two services.

= The KOHLER Tea for Two Bath featuring effervescent champagne-like bubble massage is the focus of the Harmony Room. The bath fills from the ceiling with a solid stream of water using Laminar Flow technology.

= The Harmony Room and the Acoustic Room feature the new, KOHLER

Custom Vichy Shower that is only available at the Kohler Waters Spa. The horizontal arm of water features six KOHLER WaterTiles that provide a constant showering of warm water in varying sequences throughout the service. The design of the KOHLER Custom Vichy Shower is sleek, modern and

programmable using the KOHLER DTV (Digital Thermostatic Valve) Digital Interface to preprogram the service settings. This pioneering product is scheduled to be available for purchase to the spa industry.

= The new signature water treatment is Lavender Rain, which incorporates a lavender and eucalyptus exfoliation

followed by a soothing, warm Vichy shower with hydromassage, lavenderinfused wrap and relaxing foot and scalp massages. This treatment is the perfect way for guests to experience this advancement in spa water therapy. The 50-

minute treatment is available for $155 and $175 on Saturday.

= Guests who are looking for new treatments in addition to hydrotherapy will enjoy the new Stillness Room, where they can try additional Kohler Waters Spa Two- gether Couples Treatments and enjoy more relaxation together with massage treatments including the Kohler Massage and Stretch & Flex for Two. The couples

water experiences include the new RiverBath for Two and H2O Inspiration for Two Signature Treatment. “We designed these rooms and new signature treatments to further enhance the health and relaxation benefits for which

Kohler Waters Spa has long been known,” stated Kolb. “Our goal is to provide guests with the latest in spa therapy while continuing the traditions that have made the Kohler Waters Spa one of the best in the country.” Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the 25,000 square-foot Kohler Waters Spa offers 21 treatment rooms, including the new signature rooms. Focused on the therapeutic powers of water, the award

winning Spa features men’s and women’s respite rooms, each with whirlpool, plunge pool, steam room and sauna, as well as a spacious relaxation room. Guests can also lounge in the coed whirlpool on the enclosed rooftop patio with 16-foot fireplace or work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center.
