Mayor, staff, work to restore threatened services

In the past couple of

weeks, Mayor Donna Olson
and her staff have met,
scoured the citys 2015
budget and eliminated a
$306,000 funding gap.
We were able to work
with each department, and

each has really stepped to

the table to bridge the gap
again this year, Olson said
told the Hub on Monday.
It was a lot of collaboration and cooperation by all
to make it work.
The next day, the mayor
presented her proposed
budget with a little more
detail for the Common
Council to review. Between
Oct. 21-30, council has

accomplishment was in
bringing most of what
was below the line back up
above the line, with help
from those departments by
cutting in some other areas,
or taking advantage of
some additional revenues,
Olson said.
I cant point to one big

Expo is hit with area seniors, Elvis fans

The Sixth Annual Senior Expo, held at the Stoughton Wellness and Athletic Center on Wednesday, Oct.
8, featured exhibits, vendors, lunch, music, bingo and door prizes.
Below, the event was full of colorful Wisconsin Badger spirit thanks to Ann Femrite, Vi Bergum and
Caroline Erickson, who drove from Madison. Femrite and Bergum have been fixtures at the event in
recent years, with their colorful sports-themed outfits (they have a surprise for next year), and were
joined this year by Erickson, who attended for the first time.

Letters to the editor

There are two sides to the Wal-Mart debate

As I read the Letters to the Editor section in the Sept. 26 issue,
I find it odd that all three letters
were written on how bad WalMart is for Stoughton.
In all three letters it was all the
negatives that were mentioned. I
like to approach a situation or an
issue with the fact that there are
two sides to them.
Lets start with the first inaccurate statement low wages compared to what? A doctor? A lawyer? Or to other retail employees
in Stoughton. Take a survey and
do some comparisons and see if
this point is valid.
Next item that was mentioned
Products. Wal-Mart products
are low quality, unhealthy, made
overseas. So you are implying
that the products in all the other
stores in Stoughton are of a superior quality and only made in the
United States. Go buy 10 items in
Ace Hardware, Aslesons and all
the shops on Main Street, and lets
compare where they were made.
Wal-Marts reputation as a
large corporation with huge profits. Finally, I have one that I can
agree with you. But to what did
you compare it too to the little
shops on main street, or to Target,
Boston Store, Sears. These may

Submit a letter

not have as big of sales that WalMart has, but the profit ratio to
sales determines the success and
will show that these corporations
are making huge profits.
And if they did not make a
profit, they will not have growth.
Thats why Kwik Trip can put two
and three stores in a community.
Do we need another Kwik Trip?
Not really, but they feel they can
better serve Stoughton.
And Wal-Mart just might be
thinking that with a new store,
that not only the 82 percent will
be served, but everybody. I know
the aisles will be wider and more
products will be offered and
that will benefit all residents of
Stoughton. I know nobody has
ever shopped at the existing WalMart at a busy period, so they
cant imagine how a person in a
wheel chair feels or a senior with
a walker feels like trying to navigate in those aisles. And lets not
forget the veterans, which there
are many, confined to a wheel
I could go on and address other
issues in the letter, but there are
rules when submitting a letter.

choices than most cities our

size do.

The citys current budgeting model, Budgeting for Outcomes, or BFO, has some nice
features, focusing on priorities
rather than percentage increases
and providing an automatic
public outreach component with
focus groups. That emphasizes
efficiency and helps keep the
lines of communications clear.
But its still a year-by-year
budget process and it still
doesnt solve any long-term
problems; it only helps push
immediate priorities to the top
or the bottom of the list. And
BFO really can only address
discretionary priorities, of
which there simply arent many
to go around.
What Stoughton really needs
in the next couple of years is
some long-range thinking that
follows a similar approach to
It might very well be that the
general citizenry would rather
let things go as they are than
take the chance of investing
money into improving known
problems, such as roads, limited
industrial park space, limited
housing growth potential and a
downtown that simply isnt as
vital as it could or should be.
But its a conversation we
should have.
Yes, there are ways of finding money to do such things if
the public wills it. As with the
school district, there could be
a referendum, or the city could
simply opt to borrow for capital
investments if theres a reason
to believe theyll pay off in a
few years. It could even tinker
with its accounting, putting
extra weight on funds that are
not state-limited.
But all involve making a
choice of whether investing
in the city in improving services, encouraging development, upgrading aesthetics
or infrastructure will reap
rewards before that credit card
bill comes due. And that means

having a discussion with voters,

a frank and open debate about
priorities for the next several
years perhaps a decade and
not just about next years.
Its easy for most citizens to
sit back and say 10 years is a
long time and that our own situations will change, as will the
overall economy, but most of us
probably would have said the
same thing in 2004, when we
were having the same argument
about Wal-Mart and the possible development of the Linnerud property as an economic
stimulus. The choices made or
avoided 10 years ago are affecting the choices that we have
today, and those are not likely
to change in the future unless
we will it.
Would things be different
today if Stoughton schools had
been better funded at that time?
If Stoughton roads had been
better funded?
If Stoughton had put more
resources into growth and
aggressive economic development?
Would we instead be choked
with taxes to the point where
people left the city because of
Its one thing for the city to
have Budgeting for Outcomes
focus groups that determine
theyd rather cut $5,000 here
than $5,000 there, but if there is
any inkling that voters wish to
invest in quality-of-life or longterm goals, well need a different sort of discussion.
Its something our community
editorial board will consider
in the upcoming months and
something all community-minded people should think about in
the meantime.
Next month, the editorial
board will discuss Kettle Park
West and what the city can
do to make the most out of its
existing commitments.

Asking Questions and

Accepting Answers
How often do you ask someone
a question when you already know
the answer and just want to be reassured that you are on the right track?
Sometimes we need feedback from our
boss or our teacher that we are completing a task or doing our work correctly. Getting feedback is prudent if
we think we might be going down the
wrong path, but having to be constantly
reassured is tiresome and frustrating
to those who are being asked the same
question over and over again. When we
really dont know the answer to important questions we should be quick to
ask, but also willing to accept that we
might not like the answer we get. If we
are genuinely interested in knowing how
we look, or how we are doing at work
or at school, we should accept the bitter
truth that we might not look so great,
or that were performing below par in
certain areas of our lives. Knowledge
can be a bitter pill, but if we want to
improve, and all of us should certainly
want this, we should ask questions of
those who will tell us the truth. We can
always ask ourselves these hard questions, but we should realize that we are
usually our easiest critics. Its easy to
see the speck in someone elses eye
while missing the log in our own.

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but
the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

City native Ken Wahlin

needs little introduction in
Stoughton. He, of course,
is a member of the family that founded and operates Stoughton Trailers,
the citys largest employer.
His parents, Don and Carol Wahlin, launched the
company that would later
become Stoughton Trailers
in 1961.
Kens role is managing
director of STI Holdings,
the company that owns
Stoughton Trailers.
For the past seven years,
Ken Wahlin has also served
on the governing board
and Executive committee
of stoughton Hospital. He
was a board trustee his first
five years on the Governing Board and became its
chairman two years ago.
His tenure on the board
will end next month; after
that, hell become an ex
officio member.
Wahlin was surprised at
the governing boards last
meeting Sept. 23, when he
learned that the Wisconsin
Hospital Association had
named him 2014 Trustee of
the Year.
The prestigious award
is presented to only one
community hospital board

that Monday.
The draft plan calls for
about $7.4 million, much
of which would go toward
improvements to the commercial sites and roadways
surrounding the area.
The on-site costs or
roughly $1.6 million are all
slated to be used for stormwater management. Off-site
costs totaling about $3 million include improvements
to U.S. Hwy. 51, Hwy. 138
and Jackson Street. Another $2.8 million would be
used for interest expense,
a developer cash grant and
other administrative costs.
That includes a $550,000
cash grant to be used as
incentive to have the first
phase completely built out
instead of just the first four
Sullivan said city staff
believe the development
will be able to cover those
costs, even if the citys mill
rate remains the same as
this year throughout the life
of the TIF district.
She said that if only the
first four buildings are
built including Wal-Mart
and Kwik Trip the development would add about
$18.1 million in new value.
If the entire phase 1 development is built, the new
value would be about $34.3
million by the year 2020.

the general development
plan would alter where
stormwater is held and
would remove one developable lot from the west side
of the project.
The first major change to
the approved general development plan would be to
move a stormwater pond
that was proposed between
Wal-Mart and Jackson
Street, siting it more to the
west and slightly further
north. This would create
another developable lot
along Jackson Street that
would be about 2.5 acres.
Meanwhile, a lot along
Hwy. 138 west of the
Wal-Mart lot will likely
not be developed, Scheel
said. This is because the
Wisconsin Department of
Transportation was reluctant to approve an access
point along the highway, he
told the commission Monday night. The land would
be left undeveloped and
would likely be used as a
natural space that might
count toward the landscape

City attorney Matt

to have a clear delineation between the old and

also expects a stormwater

performance next weekend

Rumor has it
The Stoughton Village Players entertain audiences with Neil Simons
Rumors last weekend. The show continues this Thursday through
Saturday. Above, Ken (Dan Prueher), left, tells Lenny (Patrick Fernan),
center, and Claire (Angy Gaglian), right, that their friend Charlie was
shot - but not fatally - prior to a dinner party at Charlies house.

Lenny (Patrick Fernan), left and Ken (Dan Prueher), right, discuss wether they should call the police after gunshots are heard
at the start of a dinner party.

A movie will come to

life on the Stoughton High
School stage as students
perform Shrek the Musical, based off of the popular
Dreamworks movie, Shrek.
For those not familiar with
the plot, Shrek is about an
ogre whose home, a swamp,
has been taken from him by
King Farquaad. Shrek sets out
for the castle to confront King
Along the way, he meets
a character by the name of
Donkey who refuses to leave
his side. Once this comical
pair reaches the castle and
confronts the king, he sends
them on another journey to
save Princess Fiona, whom
the king wishes to marry.
The two manage to save the
princess from a fire-breathing
dragon and find love along
the way, which creates a conflict for Shrek.
The play will feature Leo
Endres as Shrek, Jack Greenwood as Donkey, Thomas
Greenler as Lord Farquaad,
and Bethany Kelly as Princess Fiona.
For the dragon and the
gingerbread man, there are
puppets created by DeeDee
Bouzek, director of the play,
and Kyra Carbone, a student
at SHS. The dragon will be
controlled by Kirsten Nett as
well as five other SHS students, while the gingerbread
man will be controlled by
Maddie Jensen.
Throughout the whole
adventure, the cast will be
singing and dancing to songs
from the movie such as Im
a believer and Welcome to
Duloc. They will also perform songs that were written just for the play such as

That should make it even more fun.
Having been friends for so long,
both agreed it helped the transition to
playing doubles together for the first

I think we just slowly progressed,

but I think when we played Edgewood at conference (for the second

time), we really picked up our communication skills, Kahl said.
Halverson and Kahl added a 6-0,

Senior Ashli Stolen (purple hat) tries to keep focus while waiting near
the second tee during a rainstorm Tuesday, Oct. 14, during the WIAA
Division 1 state girls golf tournament. Stolen finished tied for 12th with a
161 (77-84).

Senior Ashli Stolen battled

through the toughest conditions
of the year Tuesday at the WIAA
Division 1 state girls golf meet.
As chaotic 35-mph winds and
sheets of rain wreaked havoc at
University Ridge Golf Course, Stolen kept calm and focused on her
back nine parring the second hole
and getting a birdie on the third.
Despite a triple bogey on her last
hole, Stolen finished tied for 12th
overall with a 161 (77-84).
I know that I have potential to
be in the top eight or even the top
five, but the conditions were really
tough today, and I battled it out and
am happy with my score, she said.

For much of the day, the fairways

and greens felt like walking on wet
sponges, and the high winds forced
the field to slow down causing
40-minute waits between some
But Stolen was still able to finish
with nine pars and a birdie in round
2. She just missed the heavy rains
in the first round, Monday. Stolen
had 10 pars and two birdies in that
I am super proud with how she
played, head coach Dave Taebel
said. She hit the ball great, and she
controlled her emotions. She was
just a rock out there.
She represented our team and
our school and our town tremendously.
Stolen was a letterwinner all four

years of her high school career, and

she came a long way from then to
this years state tournament.
In her first year, she shot triple
digits several times, but she worked
every summer and was able to bring
that average down to the low 80s/
high 70s.
She is a model of improvement,
Taebel said. To see how far she
has come as a player and where she
is at now, it shows she put in the
time and effort to get better.
That improvement also means
that colleges started to take notice
in Stolen. She said that she plans on
playing golf at the next level.
I am hoping that now that the
golf season is done, I can focus
more on picking a college, Stolen

Senior Nikki Staffen won the Baertschi Invitational in Albany on Saturday

and in doing so led the Stoughton girls
cross country team to victory as well.
Staffen, who hadnt won a race prior
to securing the last two Verona sectional
titles, finished seven seconds ahead of
Boscobel senior Keely Foley on the 5k
course in a meet-best 19 minutes, 24 seconds.
The Vikings went on to place all five
of their varsity scorers in the top 34 to
take top honors with 80 points out of the
12 teams competing.
Deerfield/Cambridge (95) finished
15 points behind the Vikings in second
place, while Mount Horeb (119) rounded
out the top three.
Senior Megan Reese followed Staffen

to the line in 20:54, finishing eighth overall as the teams second runner.
Nikki and Megan are running the best
they have in four years and our runners
are motivated by them, Stoughton head
coach Susan Zaemisch said.
Sophomore Augustyna Brestar (21:21)
stepped up to finish as the Vikings third
runner in 11th place with Aly Weum out
of the lineup.
Freshman Paige Halverson also continued to ascend the ranks, finishing 26th
with a time of 21:29.
Senior Ellen Janda rounded out the
varsity scoring on Saturday, finishing
34th in 22:24. Fellow senior Katie Roe
also competed, but did not score.
The Vikings JV team was also victorious, placing all five runners in the top
nine to edge Oregon 35-40. Sophomore
Maya Lonnebotn finished fifth to lead
the pack in 22:52.

Stoughton was without Clea Roe, who

had other commitments out of town over
the weekend, and Weum, who Stoughton
head coach Susan Zaemisch decided to
rest due to sickness earlier in the season
and a tight hamstring.
Aly is a tough competitor and will be

Kelsey Jenny will also be running at
Lake Farm Park along Lake Waubesa
for the Badger South Conference meet
at 10:10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 18. Stoughton

to battle for the conference title.
I like where our team stands right
now, Zaemisch said. They are focused
and determined to win conference. The
last three weeks workouts have had a
purpose and the girls look really fast.
They have pulled together as a team
and they know they are stronger as a

children and helped out

her work with energy and

efficiency while learning
how to use early versions
of IBM desktop computers. She was proud of her
professional achievements.

Monitoring Requirements Not Met

for Stoughton Waterworks
We are required to monitor your
drinking water for specific contaminants
on a regular basis. Results of regular
monitoring are an indicator of whether
or not your drinking water meets health
standards. Between 07/01/2014 and
09/30/2014, we did not monitor at any of
the wells for coliform bacteria contaminants, and therefore cannot be sure of
the quality of your drinking water during
that time.
What precautions should be taken
at this time?
There are no special precautions
you need to take at this time. However, it
is important to remember that the quality of your drinking water is not known
at this time.
What was the cause of the missed
monitoring requirements?
Monitoring assignments were misinterpreted.
What is being done to correct the
Monitoring schedules have been
placed on a 12-month electronic calendar and are included in our work order
system that is available to all operators.
When will the problem be resolved?
Full resolution has been achieved
as all monitoring occurred on October 3,
2014 and the safe results was reported
on October 4, 2014.
If you have questions regarding
the safety of our drinking water, please
