Deputies shoot, kill Elkhorn man


Man allegedly stole a squad car, ed and pulled shotgun on law enforcement
ELKHORN An Elkhorn man was shot and killed by Walworth County Sheriffs deputies during the early-morning hours of June 13 after he beat up another man and stole a deputys squad car. According to a sheriffs department statement, Jeremiah B. Krubert, 39, crashed the stolen squad car at the T intersection of Millard and Pierce roads in the town of Sugar Creek. He then allegedly got out of the squad and confronted pursuing deputies with a sheriffs department shotgun he took from the squad. Krubert reportedly ignored deputies demands that he drop the shotgun as he advanced on them. Three deputies red their weapons, dropping Krubert. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Meanwhile, the man Krubert beat up, Michael J. Boyd, 54, was rst taken to Aurora Lakeland Medical Center, Elkhorn. But his injuries were so severe that he was later transferred to Froedtert Hospital, Wauwatosa. According to Walworth County Sheriff David Graves, Boyd is expected to recover. Boyd is suffering from extensive injuries to his face and skull. Krubert is believed to have beaten Boyd with a metal object similar to a length of pipe. Sheriffs deputies were called to N7248 County Road O, town of LaGrange, about 2:45 a.m. June 13 for a report of a home invasion in progress. At the scene, deputies encountered a male subject, later identied as Krubert, who had made entry into the home owned by Boyd, and his girlfriend, Kathleen M. Krubert, 58. Kathleen Krubert is Jeremiah Kruberts mother. One of the responding deputies saw Jeremiah Krubert trying to leave the scene in a truck belonging to Boyd.

THE RACE IS ON for John Eddins during tryouts to make the prestigious mailboat jumping team. The jumpers deliver mail around Geneva Lake for Gage Marine each summer.

Mailboat jumpers try to land coveted job


By John Halverson jbhalverson@lakegenevanews.net Its not just about the jump. Personality counts, too, one of the judges said. And there were personalities galore at the annual Lake Geneva Cruise Line mailboat tryouts last Wednesday. There was Cruise Line Manager Harold Friestad, into his 46th year at Gage, who was piloting the tag-along boat. Next to him was 7-foot-tall Jack Lothian, Harolds protg, who we gured could make the jump from boat to pier without actually jumping. There were two newspaper photographers talking about their cameras and a TV photographer who relayed a tale of how one of his brethren dropped his camera in the water at this same event a few years ago. On the mailboat itself there were nine athletic and brave souls who were trying to land a coveted spot on the Gage mailboat jumping team. Among them was Garrett Robers, a veteran jumper, coaching his sister, Gretchen, who was trying out for the rst time. Another veteran jumper, Shelby Peck, grew up on the lake and recalled watching the jumpers when she was far too young to try out. One participant even brought a towel. One of the judges, Sue Zachary, recalled how she jumped last year after a 25-year retirement. Also trying out this year were Anna and Keith Vogt, Joanie Williams, Zach Aspinall, Dan Sepe and John Eddings. At the helm last Wednesday, as he has been since the trials which started in 1990, was Neill Frame, who has been with Gage for half a century. The tryouts have been covered by media across the globe, and the youthful participants acknowledge its a prestigious job. The mailboat cruise delivers to about 60 lake homes. The nautical letter carriers leap from a moving boat, place the mail in mailboxes located on each pier and then run back to the still-moving boat before it leaves the dock. Last week there were several hard landings as the jumpers grabbed on to the railing at the tail-end of the boat, but no one took a splash landing in Geneva Lake no towel was necessary.

Answers sought in turtle slaying


By Steve Targo steve@lakegenevanews.net A turtle died after it was beaten with a golf club, but people still want to know who did it. The Walworth County Sheriffs Department and the DNR are still investigating the beating. Authorities believe someone used a golf club to beat a female snapping turtle June 10 at Delbrook Golf Course. With a fractured skull and holes in its shell, the turtle was taken to Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital, town of Geneva. On June 11, the turtle was transferred to Pineview Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Fremont. The next day, the turtle died. According to a Wisconsin State Journal article, Pineview Director Jeannie Lord said the injuries were too extensive for the turtle estimated to be between 10 and 13 years old. So far, two groups have put up a total of $6,000 in reward money to help nd the culprit. The People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, is offering $5,000. Thats in addition to the $1,000 offered by Global Conservation Group of Watertown for information leading up to an arrest and conviction.

DNR wants wolf hunt to grow
MADISON Wisconsin wildlife ofcials are asking their board to let hunters and trappers kill more wolves this year. The DNR on Tuesday nalized their proposed kill quotas for the states second wolf season, setting the mark at 275 wolves. The states Chippewa tribes are entitled to half of the quota for the ceded territory, which means nontribal hunters and trappers would be able to kill 160 wolves statewide. The DNR would issue 2,750 permits, up from 2,010 last year. The Natural Resources Board is expected to vote on the quotas at a June 26 meeting in Wausau. Hunters and trappers killed 117 wolves during last falls hunt. The DNR estimates as many as 834 wolves roamed the state last winter.

High-capacity wells provision delayed


MADISON The Republican-controlled state Assembly planned to vote Tuesday on delaying a provision in the state budget that would make it easier for big water users to get permits to drill high-capacity wells as well as remove caps on a property tax credit program beneting disabled veterans. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said while Republicans would make changes to the high-capacity wells and property tax provisions, most of the $70 billion, two-year budget would remain largely the same as when it cleared the Joint Finance Committee earlier this month. While Democrats had more than 200 amendments drafted, none were expected to be adopted. The high capacity wells provision was one of the most controversial items added to the budget by the budget committee. The language would block anyone from challenging high-capacity well applications and permits by arguing the state Department of Natural Resources didnt consider the cumulative impact of the well and surrounding wells on the environment. But the Assembly planned to delay the change until July 1, 2014. Vos said it was his hope that the Legislature would revisit the issue between now and then. High-capacity wells have long been a contentious issue in Wisconsin. Theyve come to the forefront again in recent years with the growth of businesses that use vast amounts of water, such as sand mining and factory farms. Republicans said the budget provision simply reinforces the DNRs position that it has no power to take the effect of multiple wells into account when approving applications. Democrats and environmentalists, though, said the prohibition would leave citizens without a way to force the DNR to consider the big picture of multiple wells depleting groundwater, lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands.

Kerry taps Feingold for Africa post


WASHINGTON Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that he has chosen former Sen. Russ Feingold as the new U.S. special representative for the Great Lakes region of Africa and the ongoing crisis in the Congo. Congos government and rebels, known as the M23, have been negotiating in Uganda since December under a regional bloc, but the talks have often been set back by accusations over who is responsible for rampant violence in Congos North Kivu province. The suffering in the Great Lakes region of Africa and the ongoing crisis in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo continues to trouble all of us greatly, Kerry told reporters. We are convinced that we have to help the parties nd a path to a lasting peace, to a permanent cessation of hostilities and to the disarmament and demobilization of M23, accountability for human rights abuses and, nally, a breaking down of the barriers that are standing between humanitarian aid and the civilians who need it. Feingold, a Democrat from Wisconsin, chaired the Africa subcommittee when Kerry was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Camp kids get on a roll with bowling outing


By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net Way to go, girlfriend, Bruce Siegel shouts as he high ves McKenna Carviou, 13. McKenna just rolled a strike. And Siegel was as excited as she was. McKenna was one of eight youngsters with a medical staff member and a counselor from the One Step at a Time Summer Camp at George Williams College, Williams Bay, who were practicing their bowling chops at Lake Geneva Lanes, 192 E. Main St., on Monday. One Step at a Time has camps around the country for kids who are suffering from cancer or who are in remission. The program is funded and operated through Childrens Oncology Services Inc., a Chicago-based charity. The program offers the usual summer camp activities, swimming, hiking, boating and bowling. But the counseling and care is geared toward the campers special needs. Siegel, of Highland Park, Ill., owns BLPromos, a publicity company and is also a member of the Professional Bowlers Association. Siegel arranged for the group to bowl for free at Lake Geneva Lanes. The camp kids vary in age from 5 to 19. They are divided into age groups, and Siegels group is from the ACEs, ages 13 to 16. The summer camp offers youngsters one to two weeks of summer camp activities. About 300 youngsters are attended by nearly 600 adult counselors and medical staff, Siegel said. Siegel is a bowling dynamo with a voice like Al Pacinos. He reminds the youngsters to take a slow rst step. Siegel told a reporter that hes learned from the kids at the camp that whats going to happen in the future isnt worth worrying about. Its what you have for the moment thats important, Siegel said. This is the fth year of camp for McKenna, of Cottage Grove. Bowling in her group were Katie Bayne, 13, of Roselle, Ill., who is in her fourth summer at camp, and Kylie Jones, 13, of Kenosha. Counselor Fronzie Roemer, Lake Forest, Ill., helped Katie, who needed a special ball guide to bowl. Roemer also rolled a few balls, getting some counseling in turn from Siegel. Roemer said her mother was a counselor at the camp, and she was also a counselor until she took a 13-year hiaitus to raise a family. This is her rst year back as a counselor. With Roemer was Lauryn Abel, Cincinnati, a nurse with the camps volunteer medical staff. Abel said she learned about the program from a friend. This is her rst year volunteering at One Step at a Time. In the next alley, Michael Taylan, 13, made a good approach, but nonetheless watched as his ball found the gutter. What did you do wrong? asked Siegel. I didnt square my shoulders, replied Michael. Sorry. Thats OK, replied Siegel. Bowling with Michael was Philllip Murray, 14, of Evansville, Ind., who didnt seem to have problems knocking down pins. Murray said he doesnt mind coming hundreds of miles from home. In fact, thats a bonus, he said. I can get away from home, said Phillip, who stays at the camp for the full two weeks. An alley over, Maurice McCoy, 16, of Chicago, was piling up strikes. I think its great, said McCoy of the bowling outing. These guys dont need me anymore, Siegel said.

PHILLIP MURPHY, 14, celebrates after a near strike.


Siegel said he started with One Step at a Time taking kids out on the lake with his boat, which he keeps at The Abbey Resort. Then, 16 years ago, at the request of Dr. Edward Baum, former director of One Step at a Time, Siegel began taking the older campers bowling, giving them some bowling advice along the way. For 15 seasons, Siegel took his group to the Two Seasons in Elkhorn. This year, however, Two Seasons closed. Siegel said manager Mike Carstensen was very understanding about letting Siegel bring his group to Lake Geneva Lanes. Mondays are slow anyway, Carstensen said. And its a good community thing to do, he added, while he and co-manager Tom Yanke watched Siegel and the kids bowl. Siegel said the bowling group would be back the next day for a real competition, involving points and prizes. But Siegel hinted that everyone would be a winner.

Supervisors brother-in-law gets 10 years


ST. CHARLES, ILL. The man a town supervisor helped bond out in a homicide case last fall was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Dan Hatyina, 51, of Bartlett, Ill., faced charges after he was involved in a July 28, 2012, boating accident in which a 10-year-old boy died. Geneva Town Supervisor Gene Decker paid $50,000, 5 percent of Hatyinas bond. In an Aug. 23 interview, Decker said Hatyina is his brother-inlaw. In April, Hatyina pleaded guilty to aggravated driving under the inuence of drugs and alcohol, according to the Associated Press. I feel so badly, Hatyina said Friday during a sentencing hearing. So help me God, I am so sorry. Tony Borcia, 10, of Libertyville, Ill., died in the boating accident on Petite Lake, which is part of the Chain O Lakes in northern Illinois. He was riding on an inner tube pulled by a boat when he fell off and was struck by the boat operated by Hatyina. Hatyinas girlfriend, Renee Melbourn, testied Friday that Hatyina cries every single day about Borcias death. But Kane County Judge Clint Hull said Hatyinas remorse came too late. Hull said Hatyina chose to use cocaine, drink alcohol and operate a boat, and now he wants to take those choices back. Unfortunately, we do not have the power to do so, Hull said. Borcias family members wept in court after the sentence was given on the second day of the two-day sentencing hearing. Hatyinas bond initially was $1 million, or a cash bond of $100,000. On Aug. 23, Decker said Randy Johnson vice president of Nameplate and Panel Technology, where Hatyina worked for 18 years also posted $50,000. With $100,000 posted, Hatyina was able to avoid incarceration at Lake County Jail. Our hearts go out to that family (the Borcias), but nevertheless, the worst thing I thought that would happen to (Hatyina) was for him to lose his job, Decker said. Thats why I posted bond. He also spoke candidly with the Regional News about the case against Hatyina. Decker called the claim that Hatyina used cocaine hours before the accident hooey. Decker also said preliminary tests showed Hatyinas blood alcohol content was below the legal limit. They released him and they said if they had any questions theyd get back to him, Decker said. He also said he wouldnt say that Hatyinas being set up, but hes being set up. Immediately after the hearing Friday, Hatyina was taken into custody. On Thursday, June 13, Jim Borcia, Tonys father, testied that he still has nightmares about the day his son was killed. Every time I see a dad playing catch with his kid, its like a knife in my stomach, Jim Borcia said during his victim-impact statement. Tony was not only my son, he was my best friend.

Turtle/Authorities still seeking person responsible for fatal beating


Many are calling for action. The most fervent reactions to the fatal turtle beating can be read online, where people have posted expressions of anger and grief. I am very happy to see the moral outrage being expressed in the form of support in nding and prosecuting the perpetrator of this cruel abuse, said Yvonne Wallace Blane, of Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital, town of Geneva, in an email Friday. On June 10, between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m., the turtle was found beaten at Delbrook Golf Course. State Department of Natural Resources Conservation Warden Juan Gomez called Wallace Blane and took the turtle to Fellow Mortals. It is widely believed the turtle was laying its eggs in a sand trap on the golf course. This turtle is perhaps the most appropriate symbol of innocent suffering because it is often more difcult for people to empathize with a reptile than with a wild mammal or bird, Wallace Blane said. But not everyone sympathizes with mammals or birds, either. She said the same day a DNR warden brought the turtle to Fellow Mortals, a beaten female mallard duck was admitted from a park in Burlington. It had lost an eye and had her skull fractured as a result of rocks being thrown deliberately at her, Wallace Blane said. Another duck is still in that location, unable to walk after having its leg broken. On the Facebook pages of Fellow Mortals and Delbrook, people posted questions about the ongoing investigation and expressed their sadness, anger and disbelief. On the Regional News website, some are questioning why people are putting up so much reward money. Others have asked how the injuries indicate a deliberate beating was inicted. There has been speculation that a lawn mower may have caused the injuries, or even that whoever hit the turtle did so in self-defense. But Wallace Blane didnt think so. I have personally seen close to 40,000 wild animals in my career and know intentional injury when I see it, she said. It is very different from injury caused by collision with a vehicle, power line, window or hunting injury. Has anything good come out of this incident so far? The important lesson here is that every life has value, regardless of whether we consider it beautiful or useless to us, she said. A gentlemans sport? Meanwhile, it would appear not only Delbrook is taking heat for the incident. Some are calling golf courses and golng in general into account. Some have also posted comments on Delbrooks Facebook page asking for the club to shut down for a few days to send a message that this behavior wont be tolerated. Dan Piecha, general manager of Delbrook, said Friday in a phone interview that its hard to tell if the press surrounding the incident has affected business. He said the last few days brought nice weather to the area, so it appears business has been typical and people are still playing golf at Delbrook. The club didnt maintain silence about the incident. On June 11, Peicha posted a six-point statement on the Delbrook page. He stated the club provided the names of every golfer who played that morning to the sheriffs department and the DNR, and if anyone believes Delbrook condones this type of behavior, you are very misguided. Not all the responses to Piechas statement were antiDelbrook. Some praised the club for cooperating with authorities. However, others are urging the club to release the names of the golfers who played at the time of the incident. Piecha said he wouldnt comment on any individual comments posted on Facebook. When asked if he was surprised by the types and number of comments on the Facebook page, he said the level of passion was unexpected. He also said he is worried people will get the wrong impression about golf. I think that, for all the things that golf courses do, with donating to charities and things like that, hopefully people wont get the impression this is common with people in our sport, Piecha said. He said hes not aware of this type of incident ever happening before at Delbrook. This is not indicative of our golfers here, or of golfers anywhere, Piecha said. This is an anomaly. In fact, some Delbrook golfers have donated money toward the reward, he said, and the club is taking up its own collection. All the money that we are collecting, that our golfers are voluntarily donating, we will collect and donate to that reward fund, Piecha said. There is one bit of confusion, however. In his June 11 statement, Piecha stated the incident was caused by the actions of one individual, Not a group of golfers or all golfers. One person. When asked why he stated that, Piecha said he cant be 100 percent certain it was just one person. I was only sending single golfers out to that part of the golf course at the time this occurred, he said. Thats just my opinion. So how is it that one person could presumably beat a turtle with a golf club, midmorning, on a course inhabited by other golfers? This incident took place in one of the furthest places from the clubhouse, Piecha said. He said there are four holes located near Interstate 43 which are isolated. The club features 27 holes for public golf. These four are also near a creek, Piecha said. To get to these four holes where this happened, we have to cross a cart bridge, he said. Will this change the way golf is played at Delbrook? Of course, with something like this, you have to address issues, Piecha said. The important thing, I think, that people need to understand (is) this is an isolated incident.

Krubert/Deputies on administrative leave


The deputy tried to stop Krubert, who then reportedly left the truck and confronted the deputy with an edged weapon. The deputy red his service weapon several times during the encounter. There is no report whether Krubert was hit. Krubert managed to steal the deputys squad car and proceeded south on County O toward Millard. A short pursuit was initiated and Jeremiah crashed the squad car at the T intersection of Millard Road and Pierce Road in the town of Sugar Creek. The state Department of Justice, Ofce of Criminal Investigation, is investigating this incident, with the assistance of the Walworth County Sheriffs Ofce. The four deputies involved have been placed on administrative duties, which is standard practice for these types of incidents.

A TANDOM mail delivery isnt common, but veteran jumpers Keith Vogt and Garrett Robers showed off their skills during the tryouts for the Gage Marine mailboat team.

Mailboat/Jumpers exchange war stories


Once a jumper bypassed the leap back on the boat and stood there looking lonely and a little embarrassed as the boat took another pass to pick her up at the end of the pier. One jumper pointed out that one of the tricks is running with the boat so theres momentum for the leap back. As they sat waiting for their turn, the jumpers exchanged war stories. One of the thrills of being a mail jumper is hearing the roar of the crowd as you make an ascent and landing, several said. Some of the veteran jumpers acknowledged that theyve had a few intentional water landings for dramatic effect. One jumper recalled he opened a mailbox and noted there was a coffee cup inside. A little girl arrived on the scene to take the mail just in time for him to make the leap back. The kids also have to narrate the mailboat tour which points out history of the lake and its mansions. So the tryouts test oration as well as athleticism.

JOHN HALVERSON/REGIONAL NEWS

THE JUMPERS in the annual Gage Marine mailboat competition were, from left, Anna Vogt, Gretchen Robers, Shelby Peck, Joanie Williams, Zach Aspinal, Dan Sepe, John Eddins, Keith Vogt and Garrett Robers. Winners of the tryouts will deliver mail by boat this summer. The tryouts occur every June. The original mailboat dates back to 1873. In those days there was no other way to deliver mail, since there was no easily traversed road. The original mailboat was something they called the Paper Boat for newspaper, not because she was made of paper. Formally known as the Ripple, she delivered newspapers and served as a ferry for 30 years. In 1916, the Walworth took over her mail duty until it was scrapped in 1965. Two years later a new Walworth took her place and has been delivering the mail ever since. The mailboat has been featured in People Magazine, the Wall Street Journal and the prestigious Power and Motor Yacht Magazine. The jump has received plenty of TV coverage, too, and was featured on the Today Show and on the BBC. A few years ago Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channels Bizarre World actually jumped and made it. A public TV show lmed a staged tryout for inclusion in an upcoming show on Lake Geneva. If youre a rider theres no need for a towel, just a willingness for a little vicarious adventure. The season runs from June 15 through Sept. 15.

Bay pier dispute goes to appeals court


By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net WILLIAMS BAY A couple who owns lakeshore property in the village are appealing a recent Walworth County Court decision that supported the villages right to enforce its setbacks on pier-mounted shore stations. At its committees of the whole meeting June 12, the village boards building, zoning and ordinance committee recommended that the village contest the appeal. Christopher and Magdalena Pauly, Roselle, Ill., who own a summer home and pier at 7 N .Walworth St., Williams Bay, led their lawsuit Nov. 15, 2012. The case was heard by Walworth County Judge James L. Carlson, who, in an April 9 decision, rejected arguments that the villages pier setback rules were contrary to law and that enforcement of those laws were arbitrary and capricious. Mara Spring, Elkhorn, the Paulys attorney, led a notice of appeal May 30. A motion to reconsider was led with Carlson on May 31. Carlson rejected the request the next day. The appeal is set for a three-judge review. No date for hearing the appeal has been scheduled. The case started as a dispute over the villages rejection of the Paulys request for a shore station permit for their pier. A shore station is where a boat is parked and usually lifted out of the water. The station protects the boat from other boats and keeps it from banging against the pier. The village denied the permit because drawings showed that it would encroach about 2.5 feet into the southern neighbors 12.5 foot set back. The villages harbor commission set the 12.5-foot setback in 1994 to ensure a 25-foot separation between piers to allow boats to gain access to the lake. However, a number of piers and shore stations were in existence and use before the 1994 regulations, and while they do not comply with the setback, they are grandfathered in and allowed to continue to operate. The Paulys are allowed the use of a shore station on the north end of their pier. It is a south shore station on the south end that has been a bone of contention between the Paulys and the village harbor commission.

THE DENIAL OF a pier permit by the village of Williams Bay has been a legal ght for several years. Walworth County Circuit Court Judge James Carlson ruled in favor of the village, but the pier owner, Christopher and Magdalena Pauly are appealing the decision. The village said Pauly cant place his shorestation at its current location because it violates the villages setback requirements.

Wanted: Volunteer reghters


By Jade Bolack JBolack@lakegenevanews.net FONTANA Residents need not fear of an unstaffed re department, according to Chief Wolfgang Nitsch. The sign requesting volunteer reghters and EMS outside of the safety building in Fontana is just to get the word out. Were always looking for more people to help out, Nitsch said. We keep the sign up in the attic, and about two or three times a year I stick it out. The sign draws people in, he said. People think its a full-time position, Nitsch said. When they walk in, they realize what it is. The sign works. Williams Bay has a similar sign displayed outside its re station. The Regional News was not able to reach anyone from the department regarding its request for volunteers.

The training is not anything (too tough), Nitsch said. Youre not going to be a biochemist. You go through a variety of classroom and hands on training. You learn how to carry and drag people, put up ladders and work re hoses. After the training, a background check and a vote at the department, new members have a one-year probation. Nitsch said a criminal history doesnt automatically preclude a volunteer from joining. Current reghters are required to tell department leaders about any criminal activity if it occurs as well. For getting membership, any serious misdemeanor or felony (would prohibit a volunteer from joining), he said. But something in the past may be OK. There are rules and procedures in the department for deciding on that. Nitsch said his son was just certied in the Level 1 course for the department.

Tour to explore the hidden Yerkes story


By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net WILLIAMS BAY Yerkes Observatory holds a special place in science, history and along Geneva Lake. Its perhaps the only place where the professional paths of Albert Einstein and Keanu Reeves have crossed. Einstein was at the observatory in 1921, rst to see the worlds largest refractory telescope and then to meet with some of the nest minds of astrophysics of their time to nd proofs for Einsteins General Theory of Relativity, which reshaped human understanding of the universe.. Reeves was at Yerkes to make the movie Chain Reaction, a 1996 ick best seen for its seven minutes or so of Yerkes and Geneva Lake area footage, and then quickly forgotten. The observatory, part of the University of Chicago, is now planning a new tour for those who want to see how the science, history and location come together. And more of the interior of the historic observatory than visitors see on the free tours on weekends or the group tours that are booked during the week.. Tentatively called VIP Tours, Dan Koehler will lead the exclusive, 90-minute walk-throughs on Saturdays and Sundays. He said the VIP tours will be for those 12 and older who have a deep interest in astronomy, Yerkes and the history of astronomy in the U.S. Koehler has been a volunteer tour guide at Yerkes since 1994. While conducting the free Saturday Yerkes tours, Koehler said, hes noticed that the same questions arise again and again. Who was Yerkes? Why was the observatory located in Williams Bay? And why are those strange gures carved into the terra cotta columns and panels around the observatory building? There is only so much time to answer questions when guiding anywhere from 30 to 45 people through the observatory on a 45-minute tour, Koehler said. Koehler said he proposed a tour that would take smaller groups of up to 10 people on a 90-minute tour of the observatory. The extra time and smaller size of the tour groups will allow Koehler to take visitors to areas where other tours dont go and to leisurely answer questions that cant be answered in the shorter tours.

Teachers may see insurance premiums increase


Fontana educators will be asked to pay 9 percent of cost, which is a 3 percent increase
By Jade Bolack JBolack@lakegenevanews.net FONTANA The Fontana school board will ask school faculty and staff to pick up some of the increased costs of health insurance in the 2013-14 school year. During a special session, the board agreed to recommend teachers and staff pay 9 percent of the premium. The district will pay the remaining 91 percent. The board will make a nal vote on the recommendation on June 24. Currently, employees pay 6 percent of the premium. The total cost of health insurance will increase nearly 10 percent, or $35,000, for next year, and the board expects increases to continue annually for the foreseeable future. The board agreed to split the total increase of health insurance costs. Board Clerk Lisa Laing said the additional health insurance cost should be seen as a shared burden. Were taking half of the increase, and employees are taking the other half, she said. Well both be paying more. District Administrator Sara Norton said Fontana Elementary School is in the same situation as other districts. We are in the exact same boat that every other disschools salaries. Laing said many employees are attracted to Fontana Elementary School because of their extensive benet package. On principle, you guys started out asking the employees to take a share, she said. Every time its come up (premium increases) since then, weve talked about the tradeoffs, of paying our employees more or maintaining a great benet package. Norton said even with the shared health care increase cost, the budget will be tight. If we continue to be thrifty, we can do it, she said. Mary (Coss, school business manager) has done an amazing job on keeping an eye on things. Board President Jennifer Keefe said the board needs to put money toward what it values. Right now, were saying we value their health care the most, she said. Maybe we should say that were valuing their work (by increasing salaries). Keefe said increases costs for employees isnt an easy thing for the board. This isnt something we enjoy doing, she said. But we (the district) cant afford to pay the total increase ourselves. We should shift away from the benets being the reasons people stay here and instead make the salary the reason people stay here.

trict is in, she said during a special board meeting June 13. Other districts are changing these things, or they were paying a higher (health insurance premium) rate to begin with. I dont know how long it will take for people to acclimate to this kind of change. Norton said the district would have to nd that money somewhere. Its $35,000 that were going to be paying the insurance company, she said. There will denitely be cuts. District employees pay the lowest percentage in the area, Norton said. But theyre always paid well below the state average, she said. I dont know the average of the surrounding

District changes way parents can complain


By Jade Bolack JBolack@lakegenevanews.net WALWORTH Walworth Elementary School is changing the way district residents can submit complaints to the school. Currently, the policy, adopted in 1992, sets a time line for district response to each complaint. The boards policy committee is revising the policy to allow more time for complaint investigation and response. Since 1992 its been revised twice, in 2007 and in February this year. Policy committee members didnt specically say why they decided to revise the policy after only four months. At least 16 parents submitted complaints in February using the pre-February revision of the policy. District Administrator Pam Knorr said she thought the policy should increase the time allowed for compliant investigation. Both pre- and post-February revisions state the disCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1A

trict has 30 days to respond to a compliant. I think it should be 45 days, Knorr said at the June 14 policy committee meeting. The rest of the committee agreed. During the discussion, the committee also said if the administration or board cant meet the 45 day deadline, residents who complained should be notied regarding the status of the investigation. The committee members Principal Pam Larson, Business Manager Kari Bourke, School Board President Kelly Freeman, School Board member Valerie Schmitz and School Board Clerk Mary Heyer, along with Knorr, will return to revising the policy in a future meeting. Its possible the entire policy will be rewritten to allow the board more exibility to deal with different types of complaints. After the committee is satised with its changes, the full board will read the policy and hold a vote on its approval. Other revised policies The policy committee revised and nalized versions

of four other policies on acceleration, background checks, hiring practices and student health care. The acceleration policy outlines how students may advance in individual subjects or entire grade levels. A background check policy has been in place since 1995 and was updated to detail when a check could be done on potential employees and new hires. Recruiting and hiring practices doesnt currently exist in a policy and was suggested by the districts attorney after an incident in the fall when a substitute kitchen employee was hired without administrative approval. Student health care is a Big Foot Area Schools Association policy and individualized at each district. These four policies will be read at the June 24 board meeting, and if the board agrees, will be approved at the July meeting. The policy committee intends to meet again for a daylong session of policy revision in July or August. The agenda for the June 14 meeting had 42 policies for review. The committee discussed six policies.

Volunteers
Along with him, we have two new applicants that will be coming on, provided they pass the background checks, he said. Theyll be off to Fireghter (Level) 1 school as well. Dont let the word volunteer fool you, Nitsch said his department is trained and capable. Thank God we had a volunteer re department (during a May re in the village), he said. My assistant chief was one of the people that was less than a block away. If he had been in a fulltime re house, he would have been four or ve minutes (delayed to the scene). Nitsch credits the location of his assistant chief for saving a resident in the home during that re. That re had been rolling in that basement for a relatively lengthy period of time before she even knew it was happening down there, he said. Not to discredit the fulltime (reghters in other communities), but if the guys a half-block away, he can get their faster to help someone. Nitsch said the department discussed how the re was handled and wouldnt have made any major changes in the way it happened. I think it was handled on the best of circumstances, he said.

Pier Dispute/Paulys want to use the Knitter method


Last year, the Paulys installed the shore station on the south side of their pier without village approval. The village harbor commission ran late in issuing permits and denials. All permits and denials are usually mailed out by March. In 2012, the Paulys claim they did not receive their letter of denial until July. They had already installed the shore station. They appealed their refusal to the village administrative appeals board, an ad hoc body which is appointed by the village president and convened for such purposes. The appeals board upheld the villages decision. The Paulys then appealed to the circuit court. Before both the appeals board and the circuit court, the Paulys asked that the village be required to adopt a new way of determining littoral property lines. Currently, the village simply extends land property lines out into the lake to determine the setbacks between piers. The Paulys want the Knitter method to be used to survey littoral property lines. The Knitter method of surveying follows the curvature of the shore. And the shoreline where the Paulys and their neighbors live curves. Using the Knitter method of determining setbacks would force the Paulys and their neighbors to reposition their piers, but would also make the two shore stations the Paulys requested fall within setback lines. The Paulys rst suggested the Knitter method for determining pier setbacks in 2008. However, the village has a 2008 letter from the state Department of Natural Resources that says the agency prefers the extended lot line method simply because the agency determined it was the fairest method of determining riparian rights along that section of shore. The DNR letter says in part, no single method would make all elements comply with lot lines. In his decision to dismiss the Paulys writ of certiori, Carlson noted the letter and wrote that the DNRs support of using extended lot lines to determine littoral property lines and setbacks was a signicant factor in his decision.

Big Foot wont have furlough days


By Jade Bolack JBolack@lakegenevanews.net WALWORTH The Big Foot School Board had planned to have administrative and custodial staff furlough for 11 days in the 2013-14 school year. The board agreed to rescind the unpaid leave days after Deb Way, administrative assistant, sent a letter to the board requesting that. Way said at the June 17 school board meeting that the work doesnt decrease when hours are cut. Board President Ed Hayden said the furlough days wouldnt help the budget. In looking at these, were talking about $320, $580 and $696 (cut from the budget), he said. Wed have to have a lot

of employees furloughed before it added up to a signicant amount. Board Vice President Bill Grunow said its easy to overlook the cost of lost hours. Its easy to take the furlough days and roll them into the budget savings and not consider that the workload does not change, he said. The point is that were working less hours, but we have the same amount of work. I understand that. It makes sense. Grunow said with the failure of the April referendum asking tax payers if the district could exceed state-set revenue limits, the board made some quick decisions when cutting the budget. That was something that was considered necessary, he said. Now from what I understand, since we were able to make

a (budget) adjustment with the insurance that possibility of rescinding the furlough days is where were at. Rec Dept. faces busy summer Recreation District Director Chuck Thiesenhusen said the department was looking forward to its busiest summer yet. All of our programs seem like theyre lling in quite nicely, he said. Previous programs have been at capacity, and weve had a number of kids sign up for the rst week of day camp already and thats a number of weeks out. In April, the department surveyed tness center users on their experiences and happiness with the center. Thiesenhusen said 70 percent of center users took the survey.

The center has seen 1400 different people since it started an ID use program in 2011. On an average basis, our tness center gets used between 14,000 and 15,000 times each year, he said. We had about 820 users for 2012. The tness center gets used heavily, Thiesenhusen said, and most survey takers said they would pay $20 a month to use it. Currently, the only fee to use the center is a one-time $5 ID card fee. If you look at Anytime Fitness here in town, theyre still struggling to get there rst 100 users registered, he said. Most people indicated they would like to see additional hours. Well be adding later hours during the week and weekend hours this fall.

Yerkes/The new tours aimed toward adults with a deep interest in astronomy
He said Yerkes Director Jim Gee was kind enough to assent to the new tours. Koehler said the tours will be aimed at mostly adults who have a deep interest in astronomy and history of the science. Koehler, a native of Chilton, has also had a long-term love affair with astronomy, the history of astronomy, American history and especially the history of Yerkes. So, of course, he has a degree in nance from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater and an MBA from Marquette University, and a long career in nance and banking. Sometimes the hearts desire takes the long way around. Koehler said he made his rst visit in 1975 with a group of high school students and his high school physics teacher who used astronomy to demonstrate some of the principles of general physics. Koehler said that when he was attending Whitewater, he would hang out at the observatory, doing volunteer work when he could. Sometimes the secret of doing what you really want to do is just being there. If you hang around Yerkes long enough, they give you a job, Koehler joked. Koehler said his love of astronomy is different from that of academics who do pure research. He prefers to share the science and technology with the public. I enjoy showing people things through a telescope that they never knew existed, Koehler said. And while Yerkes focus is outer space, Koehler also takes a keen interest to the buildings inner spaces as well. Yerkes Observatory is seen as the historical dividing line between modern astrophysics and classical astronomy, Koehler said. Simply put, classical astronomy determines where celestial objects are located, he said. Astrophysics tries to gure out how those celestial objects work. Among some of the hidden treasures within the observatory is George Ellery Hales solar telescope. Hale, the observatorys rst director, took a direct hand in designing the buildings layout. Within the observatory, Hale created a horizontal room that allowed mirrors to reect the suns disk onto a far wall. Hale could then safely study the suns surface and the appearance and migration of sunspots. The mirrors of Hales sun observatory are gone. The strange, elongated room is seldom seen by visitors. But that could change with the new tour, Koehler said. Other nooks and crannies within the 326foot long building include second-oor bunk rooms for researchers, long since unused. And basement work spaces and machine shops still used by engineers and technicians to build and maintain research equipment for the University of Chicago. And then, there are the observatory domes. The granddaddy of them all is under a 90-foot-diameter dome on the west wing of the observatory. Yerkes may not have been built at all if the University of Southern California had not run out of cash for what would have been its astronomical centerpiece. The 40-inch lens for the USCs new refracting telescope, the largest lensed telescope to ever be built, was waiting for payment that USC never made. Instead, Hale tapped into the fortune of Charles Tyson Yerkes to pay for them. Yerkes, who nanced Chicagos mass transit system, had spent time in a Pennsylvania prison for fraud. He was again being accused of embezzlement in Chicago. Hale told the transit magnate that his name would live forever if he supported the observatory, said Koehler. Yerkes probably saw the telescope as a way for him to repair his reputation. Hale wanted to keep the observatory within 100 miles of the University of Chicago campus. Williams Bay was selected because it was far enough from Chicago to avoid light pollution and yet close enough for a day-trip by train. It was also close to the Geneva Lake summer homes of wealthy Chicagoans. William Rainey Harper, then president of the University of Chicago, used the proximity of Yerkes to get at donors even during the summer months, Koehler said. Harpers goal was to pick the pockets of the wealthy, Koehler said. Architect Henry Ives Cobb was designing buildings on the University of Chicago campus. He had also designed the sheries building at the Chicago Worlds Fair of 1893. As a result, Cobb was tapped with the mission of creating the observatory. Cobb worked with Hale on the buildings design. What Cobb created can only be described as a neo-classical working monument to modern astronomy. The north and south observatory entrances are echoes of the triple-arched entrances Cobb used for the Chicago fairs sheries building, Koehler said.

DAN KOEHLER, Yerkes Observatory tour guide, stands by a terra cotta pillar covered with symbols and caricatures of those who donated to build the observatory building. Yerkes was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb.

If youre interested:
Where: Yerkes Observatory, 373 W. Geneva St., Williams Bay. What: VIP tours of the observatory building. Who: Dan Koehler. Long-time Yerkes volunteer, historian and tour guide. When: Tentative start date June 29. Tours start at 2 and 4 p.m. Saturdays, and 10 a.m. and noon Sundays. How much?: $25 per head. How long?: Each tour is 90 minutes. For tour information call: Cindy Rademaker, (262) 245-5555 ext. 810 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Above the entrances are copies of friezes and frescoes that adorned ancient temples. Over the south entrance is a copy of a frieze of the Greek god Helios bearing the sun disk on his chariot, a direct reference to Hales research of the sun, Koehler said. And then there are the gargoyles that line the walls and strange little carvings of faces, stars and men-in-the-moon that adorn the terra cotta pillars anking the entrances. The whole effect is one of ancient myth crossing contemporary social commentary. The meanings of some of the images are known, Koehler said. The others are a mystery. Koehler said he wishes he could sit down and talk with Cobb about his design of the observatory. But Cobb died in 1931, and, unfortunately, his wish that all his drawings and notes be burned upon his death was carried out, Koehler said. Hale, meanwhile, never liked the gingerbread Cobb spread on his observatory, Koehler added. Hale believed the money could have been used for more scientic equipment. Koehler is currently working on a book about the history of Yerkes. He has had access to the archives at the University of Chicago and at California Technical Institute, where Hale nished his career and where his papers are stored. Koehler admitted to a weakness, however. He said hes having trouble nishing the book because he cant stop researching the observatory, its history and the lives of those who made it famous.

Warning: Chlorides are on the Rise!


Water Softener Users The Fontana/Walworth Water Pollution Control Commission is asking for your help. Over the last two years we have seen a steady increase in the amount of chlorides being discharged to the sewer. As you might be aware, our facility has a regulated permit limit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources which dictates the amount of chlorides that can be discharged to the environment. At this point you might be asking why the wastewater treatment plant does not remove the chlorides sent to us instead of discharging them to the environment. The answer is we would if we could; but currently there is no economical way to remove these ions from the wastewater. The best method we have to control chlorides is by reducing the amount of chlorides discharged to the sanitary sewer by our customers. The number one source of chlorides in general wastewater is from water softeners. We would like you to check your water softeners to see if they are wasting salt. If your softener regenerates on a timer, consider switching to a high efficiency softener that regenerates with a meter. Metered water softeners track the amount of water you use and will regenerate only when necessary. Another option is to increase the time between regeneration cycles. If your softener uses a timer, increase the settings gradually, a day at a time, until you notice hardness effects, such as less sudsing, for two cycles. Next, set the timer to just below that point. Of course if you are uncomfortable changing the settings on your water softener, we encourage you to consult a qualified water softener representative. By working together, we can make a difference. As a resident, you can save money by using less salt. Your community will benefit by avoiding costly violations that can be imposed by the state and by delaying or eliminating the need for expensive upgrades at your wastewater treatment plant. Also our families will have the continued benefit of our area's natural aquatic resources for years to come. Douglas York, FWWPCC Superintendent

Review the plans and information provided by the applicant. 2. Review the information from public comments. 3. Review the information presented at a public informational hearing if one is requested. 4. Review the information found in natural resource inventories and plans, maps, or data collected by the Department or others using commonly accepted methods. 5.

Mr. Winkler presented the option of the Granville ornamental fixture that would match the other fixtures in the downtown area. He presented a second option for the Post Top fixture, which is similar to the Granville style and costs 15% less. DPW Winkler also presented alternatives for steel or concrete poles. He commented the concrete poles cost less and would require less maintenance than the steel poles. Mayor Connors noted there would be additional costs for installing the new poles and fixtures. Mr. Connors asked if the poles included brackets for mounting planters or banners. DPW Winkler indicated they did not but the brackets could be purchased at a future time at little cost. Hill/Kupsik motion to direct staff to solicit bids for the Post Top LED light fixtures on concrete poles with bases. Alderman Hill said she liked the Post Top fixtures because she couldnt tell them apart from the Granville fixtures and they cost less. Alderman Lyon disagreed, stating he felt the two fixtures look different; he suggested the difference in price wasnt enough to warrant purchasing a fixture that would be different than the rest of downtown. Alderman Mott stated the original idea was to purchase lighting that would match the rest of downtown. Roll Call: Hougen, Wall, Hill, Kehoe and Kupsik voted yes. Mott, Taggart and Lyon voted no.

On motion by Supervisor Stacey, seconded by Supervisor Weber, Ordinance No. 779-05/13 was approved as amended by unanimous consent. Supervisor Grant offered a motion, seconded by Supervisor Weber, to approve Item 2, Ordinance No. 782-05/13. This ordinance replaces Resolution No. 13-05/13, which was listed on the first agenda mailing. Chair Russell stated there was a recommendation for increasing the compensation for the County Board Chair but not for Supervisors. Vice-Chair Grant offered a motion, seconded by Supervisor Schaefer, to increase Supervisors compensation by $100 per month. Supervisor Brellenthin stated he agrees with increasing the compensation for the County Board Chair; however, he would be opposed to increasing compensation for Supervisors. Vice-Chair Grant stated that the Board has not had an increase in at least 10 years. He also stated the work load has increased for Supervisors since the downsizing of the County Board from 25 to 11 Supervisors. Supervisor Schaefer stated he first came on the County Board in 1974 and to his recollection Supervisors were compensated $75 per month for County Board meetings and $50 per committee meeting. He said he was making more money as a Supervisor in the 1970s and 1980s than he is in present time. Administrator Bretl stated that an amount needs to be inserted into the ordinance. Supervisor Kilkenny clarified that they would be inserting the amount of $600.00 per month into the ordinance as compensation for Supervisors. Vice-Chair Grant stated that many constituents believe that Supervisors receive paid health insurance, but Supervisors have no benefits. Bretl stated that the County Board has come in under budget and there are typically extra funds from travel and training. Jessica Lanser, Comptroller, stated the total depart-

WALWORTH COUNTY LEGALS


ment budget for the County Board is approximately $199,000, which includes wages and benefits for employees. Lanser stated in 2012, the County Board returned $10,600 in wages, benefits, and mileage and $4500 in supplies and postage. Supervisor Kilkenny stated that the Board is down 14 members since the downsizing, which has saved taxpayers over $250,000. He said he feels that an increase of $100 per month is reasonable. Supervisor Schiefelbein stated although he declines to be paid for his service as a Supervisor, but agrees with the $100 per month increase for his fellow Supervisors. A roll call vote was taken on the amendment of increasing Supervisors, except the Chair, compensation to $600 per month. Total votes: 10. Ayes: 7 Grant, Kilkenny, Schaefer, Schiefelbein, Stacey, Weber, and Russell; No: 3 Brellenthin, Monroe, and Redenius; Absent: 1 Brandl. Amendment passed.

Generals reload after key losses


Leading rusher, local boy York leaves team, will face Generals this Saturday
By Mike Ramczyk sports@lakegenevanews.net WILLIAMS BAY First, the team folded back in late January. Then, it recovered to have a full tryout.

Hello, summer

Legion squad starts strong


Wilmot-led bunch missing Badger players
By Mike Ramczyk sports@lakegenevanews.net GENOA CITY The hype machine was turned all the way up to 10 for these guys. The Genoa City Senior Legion team was shaping up for a state run this summer. Both feeder schools, Badger and Wilmot, advanced to sectionals in the spring. Top players from both teams, including several allSouthern Lakes performers, would naturally join forces this summer on Genoa City like theyve done for years, right? Wrong. Legion baseball is a big commitment, with games almost every day and multiple weekend tournaments. Some guys committed to work to prepare for college, and some felt it was time to end their baseball careers. Genoa City will be without the services of Badger players Peter Krien, Eric Skipper, Ian Weber and Mitch Jensen, who all starred last year, but some Badgers are sticking around. First team all-conference pitcher and Regional News AllArea Baseball Player of the Year Colton Andresen will be back on the hill, along with fellow Badgers Jonah Zeinert, Trent Bobula and Travis Stahulak. They will join a group of young Wilmot players, several of whom helped take Wilmot to the sectional nal against Kenosha Bradford in the spring. Genoa City coach Gary Cukla said he was disappointed the Badger kids didnt want to play, but he said the door is always open for them to return. The Red Legs advanced to regional nals last year before losing to Beloit. But this season, the teams new crop of players already beat Beloit, its rst time accomplishing that feat in three years. Genoa City will feature a host of newcomers, including Badgers Levi Burnette; Wilmots Cam Loveless, Colin Barry, James Alexander, Kyle Nixon and Nick Van Kampen; and Delavans Byce Davis and Brendan Huber.

The sports dog days are here. With high school sports taking a hiatus until August, its time to improvise and write about pretty much anything that comes along. The creative freedom is awesome. Whether its a feature about water sports on Lake Geneva, a story about a football Hall of Famer or an interview with Dallas Cowboys star Tony Romo, the subject matter is broad and anything can happen. So make sure to send story ideas to sports@lakegenevanews.net if you think of anything interesting. I have time, and I will probably use it. I turned 31 last week, and I am feeling a little old. My softball team in the Lake Geneva YMCA fell through, so Im not doing that on Friday nights. Also, its going to get too hot to do anything besides swim or play golf. This summer, expect plenty of stuff on area legion baseball, the Lake Geneva Generals and hopefully area golf courses. I havent graced the links yet this season, and that is probably a good thing. Last year, I tried to teach General Manager and Editor John Halverson how to play with my limited knowledge. It may have been the start of something, so I will seek out a new co-worker to train this summer. With local sports dying down a bit, Ive been paying attention to the NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Stanley Cup Finals so far this summer. In between weddings, Summerfest and vacations in these next two months, we will witness an NBA and NHL champion along with the improvement or decline of the Brew Crew and Chicago Cubs. Lets start with the NBA. Through Monday, the San Antonio Spurs hold a 3-2 lead over the Miami Heat in the best-of-seven series. No team has won back-to-back games, so it seems natural that the Heat will recover and win game six at home. It should come down to the two most exciting words in sports game 7. Only four teams in NBA history have won the nal two games at home after trailing 3-2, and the Heat could be the fth. I picked Miami to win in seven games, and my prediction still has a chance. Right now, the area has hockey fever. The Chicago Blackhawks, Wisconsins default NHL team, is in the Stanley Cup Finals and looking for their second championship in three years.

SHANE CRAWFORD, shown here at his ofce at the Walworth County Public Works Department in 2011, is returning to the Generals this weekend.

Former county ofcial returns to eld


By Mike Ramczyk sports@lakegenevanews.net WILLIAMS BAY Two summers ago, he was working a 9-to-5 for Walworth County. Donning a suit and tie by day, Shane Crawford was the public works director. By night, Crawford, 35, would turn into an animal. He was a starting outside linebacker for the Lake Geneva Generals. It was his rst time playing football, and he loved it. Crawford lived in the weight room in preparation for the season and was a natural. In January 2012, he moved down to Florida, taking a job as a city manager in Madeira Beach. Crawford is moving up the ladder in the Sunshine State, but he never lost that itch for football. This weekend, when the Generals host the Wauwatosa Spartans in their second preseason game at Williams Bay High School, Crawford will return to the eld. He will be starting at defensive end. Crawford has had to deal with hernia surgery and Crohns disease, which have affected his diet and workout regimen. But he loves the Generals, and he cant wait to get back in the trenches. Crawford plans to visit family and former Walworth County co-workers during his trip to Wisconsin. I have invited all of the Walworth County employees as our guests this Saturday to cheer on Shane, Generals co-owner Jeni Diehl said. I dont know who is more excited, Walworth County or Shane. He is so excited to get back into the camouage and have some fun. The Regional News recently caught up with Crawford to discuss his love of football, his disease and his respect for the Generals.

Generals/30 new guys


Jeni Diehl said some players left to be closer to their hometown teams, and some left to get more playing time. Its OK, she said. Some guys arent willing to make the commitment and dedicate themselves at practice. Derek has made the playoffs every season, and we dont plan to change that. The Diehls have kept busy in the offseason, opening the Walworth Lanes bowling alley in downtown Walworth. It will give players a place to have fun after games, and it will be a gathering place for local school kids, Jeni Diehl said. Overall, she doesnt believe the new business will interfere with the Generals. We have a great group of guys that know how to ball, she said. We have some veterans that continue to lead on and off the field, as well as 30 new players that want to know whats so special about playing here. The new-look Generals lost to the Chicago Thunder, 42-0, in Saturdays preseason opener at Williams Bay. We dont play preseason to win, Derek Diehl said. We see what we have and figure out adjustments we need to make. The Generals host the Wauwatosa Spartans this Saturday at 7 p.m. at Williams Bay High School. Stay tuned for a season preview July 11.

nd themselves tied for last place at 28-40 and in last place of the National League Central entering play Tuesday. I saw this coming for the Cubs, who are in rebuilding mode, but not the Brew Crew. The Brewers have a lot of the same talent from the team that won 96 games in 2011, but they have suffered from the departures of starting pitchers Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and Randy Wolf. The starting staff was dominant in 2011 and decent in 2012, but this year has been a disaster. Milwaukee has the second-worst starting pitching ERA in baseball at 5.29. However, Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez are thriving at the plate, and the bullpen has been solid. The Brewers have

always been able to develop power hitters, but they simply cant produce quality pitching. This year, the organization decided to avoid free agents for the most part and play their own young arms. However, Yovani Gallardo, the supposed staff ace, is struggling, Wily Peralta cant nd the strike zone and Marco Estrada, Hiram Burgos and Chris Narveson have suffered injuries and missed signicant time. And the controversy surrounding superstar Ryan Braun hasnt helped. Major League Baseball is seeking a 100-game suspension for Braun, whose name appeared on a report for Biogenesis, a lab in Miami which sold performance-enhancing drugs. The lab is closed, but Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch has agreed

to cooperate with the MLB in the investigation. Braun was adamant that he is not involved with PEDs. The issue was all over the media a few weeks ago but has died down of late. In 2011, Braun was acquitted on a technicality, and MLB wants to nail him. However, they screwed up back then, and its their fault. If youre going to ban substances, make sure to properly enforce the rules. I dont think Braun will miss any time. In conclusion, go Heat, Brewers and I guess Blackhawks. Since a Wisconsin team cant win the Stanley Cup, I can live with the Hawks taking the title. Chicago fans need something to cheer about. Stay cool, everybody, hit the links and take some time to relax. Its what summer is all about.

Crawford/Crohns disease has affected former directors diet, workouts


Regional News: Why are you coming back to play? Shane Crawford: I miss playing football real bad. That was a great group of guys, and the Diehls do so much as team owners and they do so much for the guys on the team. Its a great organization to be connected with. Im going to be 36 years old in August. I can still play. I stayed in shape despite being diagnosed with Crohns disease in the fall of 2012. RN: What else are you doing in Wisconsin? SC: Im coming up to visit some family and friends in Manitowoc. My cousin has two little boys I dont see a lot of. My grandma wants to know how her oldest grandson is doing. I will see my brother, who has two little girls, and I dont see my nieces nearly enough. And I will see my dad, who drove three hours each way and never missed a game in my only season with the Generals. RN: How has Crohns disease affected your health? SC: Crohns is an immune deciency disease that attacks a part of your intestine. Im avoiding surgery by using heavy doses of prescription steroids and taking injections in my stomach every other week. I have to be extremely careful of what I eat. Ironically for a gym rat, Crohns is tough because anything raw is on the do-not-eat list, which includes salads, fruits, and vegetables. Carbs are easy to digest, so my diet has dramatically changed. I also had hernia surgery and that had a two-month recovery, but Im back in the weight room and running again. Thank God muscle has memory. RN: Are you looking forward to playing with some new faces? SC: The generals lost some players. I know they went through a time where they thought they might have to shut the team down. I think its the name of the game. Good players gravitate to other leagues or teams. Its not disrespectful. It might be a closer commute or the town they live in. Ill always remember that rst-year team. It was a team of all stars. Not sure I belonged out on that rst team defense but it sure was fun. When your teammates are that good, a 34-year-old who never played tackle football in his life can start and be effective. With Derek Diehl at the helm, the Generals will always have a quality team that will be competitive.

Remembering the greatest golfer I ever knew


The golfers are out there now. I see them as I drive by. It doesnt matter what course it is, every time I look I see a ghost of a friend of mine who died two years ago. Near the end hed ask me to drive him past the golf course. Four years earlier, when he had been told he only had six months to live, he said his wish was to golf one more time. He golfed that entire summer, and the one after that. Nothing changed in his demeanor, even when he was forced to move to the ladies tee. He was always complaining about his game, but happy to be playing it. Frank was the most irritating man in the world, and the most loveable.

Mental health gets funding in budget


Following the horric shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, a nationwide call to action was issued to help those who suffer from various mental health issues. This incident along with several others in recent years has given rise to a number of concerns regarding the mental state of these individuals and how future occurrences could hopefully be prevented. Mental health is a complex issue, affecting both children and adults, and resources should be available to them in order to maintain the health and safety of our citizens and communities. According to Wisconsin United for Mental Health, one in ve Wisconsinites will be affected by a mental illness this year, and nearly two-thirds of those with a diagnosable mental disorder do not get the treatment and support they need. Early this year, the governor held a mental health listening session with mental health advocates, consumers, law enforcement and mental health providers, including school psychologists and psychiatrists, who gave recommendations for better addressing this issue in Wisconsin. Many of those recommendations have been included in the 2013-15 state budget bill, which may be acted on by the full legislature in the coming weeks. One such budget provision expands the Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) program, which offers enhanced, individualized services including a mix of access to and maintenance of, psychiatric medication, counseling and supportive education, mental health psychotherapy and case management service. Most CCS services are provided in-home or in the community, as opposed to a clinicians ofce. The program has resulted in reduced psychiatric hospitalizations, improved family and social relationships, access to meaningful employment and improved reports of overall life satisfaction. The budget also creates the state Ofce of Childrens Mental Health to better coordinate federal, state and local services to children with mental health needs. Too often, children with mental health issues are caught in a complicated system of agencies and services, and in many cases, their mental health needs are not served. This new ofce will assure the coordination and integration of services across state agencies in order to ensure services are best meeting the needs of children throughout Wisconsin.

Single mom cares for niece


Dear W.C.,
My brother and his wife have struggled with alcohol for a long time. They live several hours away from me. They have one daughter that is four years old. Over the last two years I have taken in my niece again and again because my brother was not capable of caring for her. Child protective services removed her again this week due to neglect and their addiction. I am a single mother with two of my own children to care for, yet I always take the time to drive to get my niece whenever I can. This time I hope child services and the court let my niece stay with me permanently. I would love to have custody of my niece. My niece has developmental delays that I know I could help her with. I am asking The Time Is Now to help me with my rent and utilities this month. I am very frugal with what little funds I have but the extra expense of driving to get my niece, food, clothing (she came to me with literally the rags on her back and a pair of ip ops), and a medical bill because she was very sick when I picked her up, has strained my budget. My budget will be ne once I receive the state aid provided for the care of my niece. How can I say no when I feel I am her only hope of ever having a normal life? Please help us through this emotionally and nancially difcult time. Aunt Wanting to Help

Dear Readers,
I have seen many children removed and returned to abusive/neglectful homes over and over again. The need to protect our children is great. The decision to return children to a questionable environment is a hard one to make. Have the parents changed enough, recovered from addictions, changed possibly violent behavior, are the children truly at risk? How does the behavior of these parents affect the children for the rest of their lives? While I struggle with all these questions I am glad we can be there to step in and offer a helping hand. Children are a gift from God, and we have to do our part to compassionately protect them. From what I observed of the aunt she was certainly capable of providing a stable loving environment for the niece. Her own two children were happy, clean and well mannered. The aunt said she was horried by what she had seen of the household her niece was living in. The piles of lth, the stench of rotting food and other waste, the lack of clothing and other basic necessities. She said she had gone to the house to try and nd some clothing and shoes for her niece but did not want to even take the few belongings she found due to the state of lth and decay. The aunt said, I cried when I saw how my niece was forced to live. I asked about her brother and sister-in-law. She said she had fought with them both over their alcohol addiction for years. She had offered many times to take her niece when she knew they were in no shape to care for a child. They had declined many times. They then moved up north over a year ago to get away from her watching over them. PLEASE SEE TIME IS NOW PAGE 4D

Good idea in letter


To the Editor
I thought the idea by the letter writer last week about using the post ofce property for parking was really good. In addition, I have this modest suggestion: Build a two-story parking lot in the lot behind Champs. When it is completed, build another one in the lot behind Egg Harbor. If two stories each isnt enough, a third could be added, as long as the top could not be seen from Main Street or Broad Street. This, along with the post ofce, would solve our problem. I know wed be in trouble during construction, but it would only be for one season. Then, we could incentivise people who work downtown to park on the roof for one dollar a day. This would open up street parking. We could use the TIF money to get started. Lets do it! Rick Steinberg Lake Geneva

Sturge gets ribbing


To the Editor
Sturge, you are too funny. Where are you going that you have to drive so fast? And when did you learn to say pain in the groin? I have heard you say that expression before but it was more graphic, if you get my drift. Your little hiss is not worth all that newsprint let alone your picture? Oofda! Slow down, enjoy life and be glad you still are able to drive. Mickey Fielitz Lake Geneva

Try new ideas


To the Editor
The recent letter proposing that the Lake Geneva Post Ofce be located away from the main shopping area is a great idea. Of course, it would require that shop owners who wish to mail things would have to travel a short distance to the new post ofce. However, that is a small inconvenience when one considers that the numbers of customers would likely increase greatly. If we remain stuck in our old thinking, shop owners will not need to worry about the inconvenience, because people will avoid Lake Geneva and go to competing locations where there is convenient customer parking. I personally avoid shopping in Lake Geneva in the summer months. Melita Grunow Lake Geneva

BROAD STREET IDENTITY. Merchants on the 200 block of Broad Street have installed red umbrellas in front of their shops. This is a winner on several levels. First, it was funded by the store owners. No government or BID money was used. Second, its a great start to creating an identity for that portion of Broad Street. Its the type of identity that can tie Broad to Main Streets business district while at the same time giving Broad Street a separate image. John Halverson, editor

HISTORY

Remembering a Lake Geneva hero


He was not a hero in the military sense, but he was a hero as a Lake Geneva High School athletic star and as a pillar of the Lake Geneva community in the late 1940s and 1950s. He was born in Chicago on Feb. 14, 1906 Valetnines Day as the son of a railroad switchman and his wife. His two sisters were born in Chicago in 1908 and 1910-the rst, in the 4100 block of South State Street, and the second at 512 W. 37th Place, which is today the site of the Chicago White Soxs U.S. Cellular Field (formerly Comiskey Park). In 1912, his family moved to Lake Geneva, where his mothers sister Frances had married the owner of the Sherman Livery Stable, then located on the east side of the 300 block of Broad Street. His father took a job driving carriages for the Sherman Livery Stable, including driving Chicago millionaires from their special railroad cars that had arrived at the railroad depot at North and Broad Streets to their regal yachts, moored at the dock at the foot of Broad Street, where the Riviera is today. He and his family lived in rooms above the livery stable until his family was able to buy a small house on Maxwell Street, across the street from the Pioneer Cemetery. He and his two sisters attended the Baptist Church (whose building still exists, but is no longer a church), and Central School. His father soon got a job as an apprentice plumber and was trained as a journeyman plumber by William Hooker, the father-in-law of the legendary Wisconsin state senator and real estate entrepreneur, William F. Trinke. In 1920, he entered Lake Geneva High School. During the previous year, however, as an 8th grader, he had been the starting fullback on the Lake Geneva High School football team. During the 1920, 1921, 1922, and 1923 seasons, he was both a football and basketball star at Lake Geneva High School. He was also the sports editor of the LGHS yearbook, the Kishwauketoe. During his high school years, he became a skilled wood worker, building many pieces of furniture for his family. In 1924, he received a football scholarship to Milton College (which no longer exists) and was a star football player at Milton during the 1924 and 1925 seasons. To earn his room and board at Milton, he slept in the basement of Miltons main building and stoked the coal furnace all night long. But in 1925 he ran out of money and was compelled to drop out of Milton. He moved to Chicago, took a job at the Sherwin-Williams paint factory (SWP Covers the World) and roomed with his cousin Harry Sherman, who had also attended Lake Geneva High School. But in October 1929, the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began. Eventually, he was laid off at Sherwin-Williams and had no choice but to return to Lake Geneva to live with his parents and his sisters. In 1933, however, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected President and organized the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) as one of his rst acts in ofce. The W.P.A. proved to be a godsend for millions of unemployed in the United States (and hundreds of unemployed in Lake Geneva). He got a job with the W.P.A. building the Riviera, the tennis courts in Maple Park, Dunn Field (adjacent to todays Eastview School) where the Lake Geneva High School would play its football games, and beautifying Geneva Lakes shore from Maxwell Street to the Riviera. In 1936 he took a civil service examination and was hired by the Lake Geneva Post Ofce as a letter carrier, a job he would hold (except for service in the military during World War II) for the remainder of his life. In 1942, however, shortly after the U.S. entered World War II, he was drafted (at the age of 36) into the U.S. Army Air Force. Before he left for the service, he got city water extended to his parents home (prior to that, they had had to rely upon a well) and had a bathroom built for the home, replacing the outhouse that his family had shared with two neighboring families. He was rst assigned to Ft. Warren, Wyoming, and then to Drew Field in Tampa, Florida (most of which is now Tampa International Airport, however, the barracks in which he lived still exist). He was rapidly promoted to sergeant in the 3rd Air Force. In September 1945, he was discharged. He took the train from Tampa to Chicago, where he transferred to the train to Lake Geneva. The day after he arrived back in Lake Geneva, he returned to his old job as a letter carrier at the Post Ofce. In November 1945, the younger of his two sisters tragically died, and her husband left for San Francisco. He was compelled to raise, with his parents, his sisters

son, then only three years old, even though he had never married. In 1945 he also commenced his role as a civic leader in Lake Geneva, becoming an active member of the Knights of Pythias and of the Lions Club. He was elected Commander of the Frank Kresen Post 24 of the American Legion. Using the training that he had acquired at Milton College, he began preparing income tax returns for many of Lake Genevas residents. He also became a mentor to many of the young men in Lake Geneva. In August 1959, following a three-year battle with colon cancer, he died at the Woods (now Zablocki) Veterans Hospital in Milwaukee. He was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery with full military honors. His name was Tom J. Wardingle. He was my uncle and the brother of my mother. With his parents, Tom and Lillie Wardingle (my grandparents), he raised me. He was my hero.

Time Is Now/Alcoholic parents hurt child


There was nothing she could do to prevent it. She herself had called child services the rst time she could not reach any of them. She knew they must be on a binge. Child services found the niece locked in her room, crying in lthy soiled clothing, no food, no water and malnourished. She was able to keep her niece for several months after that, but soon found she legally had to hand her back to the alcoholic parents. It was a constant expense for her to drive back and forth as often as she could with her own job and two children to worry about. The cost of gas and caring for her own two children kept her from being able to make the trip more often. The aunt said she would move to be closer but knew they would only move away again, and she did not want to lose her job or move her children. The Time Is Now to Help stepped in to help the aunt with her immediate budget shortcomings. The rent and utilities were brought up to date. We provided some assistance with the basic necessities, a new bed, clothing, an eye exam and of course some toys. As of our last visit there was no permanent resolution for the custody of the niece. The aunt continued to have temporary custody. Both the aunt and I were moved to tears when the niece said, Thank you. Bye. when I left. I had never heard her speak before. The aunt said, See, that is why I need to keep her here with me. She will lose all we have gained. She is laughing, playing and even talking now. Our prayers are needed so this child, and others, are loved, protected and nurtured. Thank you for reading our column and sharing the message of hope.

ANNIVERSARY
Four Seasons Chorus Concert Fundraiser
Area food pantries will benefit from Songs from the Sixties concerts presented by the Four Seasons Chorus. They will be held in two locations. On Sunday, June 23, at 3 p.m., the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 715 Wisconsin St., Lake Geneva, will host the program. All proceeds will go to the nonprofit Lake Geneva Food Pantry. The second concert is Wednesday, June 26, at 7 p.m., at Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church, 420 Read St., Walworth, to benefit the Walworth Food Pantry. The Four Seasons Chorus was formed about five years ago to offer all singers an opportunity to perform a variety of musical concerts throughout the year and raise local awareness and much needed funds for the hungry in our county and beyond. Beginning at the Lake Geneva church for the first few seasons, the chorus now spends equal time in both places, making it more balanced for everyone. The volunteer group meets for about 10 to 12 weeks before shows to prepare, usually having one concert at each church, and do two themed shows per year. The chorus also performs at many care facilities. No auditions are required, only a love of music and some ability to carry a tune. Since the beginning admission has never been charged, but donations of money or nonperishable items for the local food pantries are requested. For more information, contact Rachel West at rachelrita22@gmail.com or call (262) 812-3786.

Kedzie/Mental health gets funding in budget


Another budget initiative expands the use of Coordinated Service Teams (CST) statewide. These teams care for children with behavioral or complex health issues and target children and families involved in two or more systems of care, such as mental health, long term care, juvenile justice, child welfare, substance abuse, or special education. In 2011, more than 700 children were served by CST programs. The budget also invests in the development of Peer Run Respite Centers, which are designed to improve quality of life and reduce emergency room visits. Services can include peer support, a 24/7 hotline, wellness activities, respite, and hospital diversion. The services are delivered by people who themselves have been successful in the recovery process. The budget provides funding to broadly cover inhome counseling services under the Medicaid program. Expanding coverage will allow earlier interventions, particularly for children and families with less acute conditions, and will make it easier for families to access necessary services. In-home counseling services are used to address families where a child is at risk of placement outside the home, or where a child is returning from a placement to a family environment. The nal mental health provision in the budget provides funding and positions to increase the capacity of the state forensic treatment units to meet the growing demand for inpatient evaluation and treatment services at Mendota Mental Health Institute and Winnebago Mental Health Institute. In total, more than $28 million has been dedicated in the state budget to help citizens lead healthier, more stable, and productive lives. The mental health budget provisions are signicant strides toward addressing an on-going health issue in Wisconsin, worthy of our attention. Senator Kedzie can be reached in Madison at P.O. Box 7882, Madison, WI 53707-7882 or by calling toll-free 1 (800) 578-1457. He may be reached in the district at (262) 742-2025.

STRAWBERRY GLAMOUR PIE 1 9-inch pie shell, baked and cooled 2 egg whites 1/2 teaspoon vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/3 c. sugar 1/2 cup mashed fresh strawberries 1/4 cup sugar 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch 1/2 cup cold water Red food coloring 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries Whipped cream Beat egg whites with vinegar and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar, beating to stiff peaks. Spread mixture on bottom and sides of baked pie shell. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes; cool. Meanwhile, combine mashed berries with 1/4 sugar. In saucepan, combine cornstarch and water; add berry mixture. Cook and stir until mixture boils; cook two more minutes. Stir in a few drops of red food coloring and the sliced berries; cool slightly. Spread into meringue-lined pie shell. Chill. Spread with whipped cream when ready to serve and garnish with a few perfect berries. The long-awaited season of Wisconsin-grown strawberries will be here in a week or two, with an approximate ending the first week in July, so now is the time to use them in as many ways as possible. Granted, they do freeze successfully to be enjoyed when there is snow and cold everywhere, but some recipes just arent the same when not using the fresh fruit. Strawberry Glamour Pie has meringue baked in the baked pie shell before it is filled with a cooked mixture containing mashed berries and cornstarch, then sliced berries are stirred in. The filled pie is chilled at least four hours, then topped with whipped cream before serving. Whole perfect berries may be used as garnish. Starting with a frozen pound cake makes Strawberry Torte extra easy, but a homebaked loaf-shaped pound cake would be great. The cake is sliced in three layers the long way and filled with prepared pudding and sliced berries between the layers. Whipped cream and sliced berries are combined to cover the whole cake. It is refrigerated before serving. Strawberry Cream Filling can be used between cake layers or in a jelly roll for bright color and great flavor. Mashed berries are combined with plain gelatin that has been dissolved in water. When the mixture is cooled, whipped cream is folded in and whole or sliced berries are used as garnish. Muffins with breakfast or lunch are always tasty and Fabulous Strawberry Muffins fit the bill, even appearing as a treat with tea or as a simple dessert. Buttermilk adds its flavor and texture to the muffins and each one is sprinkled with sugar before baking for an added special touch. The recipe makes one dozen. STRAWBERRY CREAM FILLING 1 pint ripe strawberries 2 tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon plain gelatin 1 tablespoon cold water 1 cup sweetened whipped cream Mash most of the berries; stir in sugar. Soak gelatin in water; place over hot water and stir until dissolved. Blend gelatin mixture into berry mixture; chill. When partially set, fold in whipped cream. Use to ll layer cake, sliced angel food cake or in a jelly roll. Garnish nished cake with reserved whole berries.

FABULOUS STRAWBERRY MUFFINS 2 1/2 cups four 1/2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups buttermilk 1/3 cup melted butter 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 pint rm fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped Additional sugar for topping Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray or grease mufn tin with 12 cups; set aside. In large bowl, combine dry ingredients and whisk to combine well. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, butter, eggs and vanilla; stir. Make well in dry ingredients; pour liquid mixture and strawberries in. Using a large spoon, gently fold ingredients until just moist. Spoon batter evenly into mufn cups. Sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon sugar, if desired. Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees, until golden and dry to the touch. Remove from pan to cool on wire rack or folded towel. Makes one dozen.

STRAWBERRY TORTE 1 loaf-size all butter pound cake 1 3-ounce package cooked vanilla pudding mix 1 1/4 cup milk 1 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries 1 cup whipping cream 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Thaw cake, if necessary; and slice into three long layers. Prepare pudding according to package mix, using 1 1/4 cup milk. Cool completely. Spread bottom layer with half the pudding; arrange 1/2 cup berries over pudding. Top with middle layer; repeat pudding and strawberries. Top with remaining cake layer. Whip cream with sugar and vanilla; stir in remaining berry slices. Spread on top and sides of torte; refrigerate at least one hour before serving. Serves eight.

Grainger has been in the industry for 20 years and attended Milwaukee technical college where he studied gas and oil forced air heating and air conditioning systems along with hydronic heating systems (boilers) Brian started from the ground up at Donovan Jorgenson Heating and Cooling in New Berlin when they had only 8 employees. He was running jobs after three short months. Six years later and for 10 plus years he was on the board of directors running one of the fastest growing companies in the state. In Brians ten year on the board they grew to a $60M company and had 130 employees. Brian ran several 80 to 100 unit condo projects and ran more than 1300 residential jobs and eventually ended up doing on call service work. He then went into a comfort advisors position and got homeowners happily involved in over $4 million of residential heating and air conditioning systems. He left Donovan in 2011 due to his dads illness. Grainger took a job running a company in Black River Falls where he was planning to reside with his father.

your guide to great golf

Teaching kids to love the game


Adults who play golf know just how fun and frustrating the game can be. Whether youre a veteran golfer or someone just learning the links, golf can be challenging. But as exacting as the game can be, it also can be just as rewarding, even for kids. Children who embrace the game of golf will learn a host of lessons they can apply in all facets of life. A humbling game even for professional golfers, golf can teach kids lessons in humility and the value of persistence even when things arent going your way. Golf is also a great way for parents to get kids off the couch and outdoors for some fun in the sun. Instead of spending summer afternoons in front of the television, kids who play golf are out patrolling pristine golf courses while getting some cardiovascular exercise along the way. Golf can also strengthen a childs hand-eye coordination, which can help them in other activities, including many different sports. Though many people do not begin playing golf until theyve reached adulthood, its never too early for boys and girls to start learning the game of golf. Parents of preschoolers can start their kids off with a toddler play set. Though its just a toy, a play set can help lay a solid foundation for future golfers. Kids who have watched Mom and Dad play golf or practice their swing can develop their own swings on their play set. As kids approach school age, dont overlook the nearby putt-putt or miniature golf range as a valuable teaching tool. Miniature golf clubs are small enough for many children to use comfortably, and kids can use miniature golf courses as a place to put any lessons or advice on putting to good use. Whats more, a miniature golf course is more than just golf, with creative courses and other fun activities, so kids wont feel overwhelmed with golf. When kids move on from preschool to elementary school, some might want to tag along with Mom or Dad to the driving range. You should try to avoid overwhelming kids with too much instruction or information. Instead, keep things as simple as possible, teaching them the basic swing and encouraging them no matter how quickly they adapt. As kids enter middle school and approach high school, those who are enjoying the game of golf can take advantage of the driving range if they havent already begun to. A driving range typically has markers that indicate the distance of a regular hole, regardless of which tee you will play from on an actual golf course. Kids can aim for holes at shorter distances to learn how far their drives are going. You can then adjust the lessons you teach your children based on how far youngsters can drive the ball. As a child gets closer to high school, you might want to buy the child his or her own set of clubs. Look for inexpensive clubs (oftentimes, thrift stores or other secondhand retailers have clubs for sale) because growing children will eventually grow out of their rst set of clubs. When your child nds a set of clubs that suits him or her, teach the proper way to swing and consider signing up your son or daughter for lessons. Those rst few lessons can prove invaluable, turning a pastime into a passion kids will carry with them throughout their lives.

Geneva Lake Shorepath One of the most popular ways to get outdoors in the summer is to take advantage of the famed Geneva Lake shore path that circumnavigates the 5,264 acre spring-fed pond. The genesis of this one-of-a-kind path dates back to the region's earliest settlers who created trails to connect the many Native American camps. Today, these footpaths are part of a 21-mile walking trail that can be explored in seven segments, each between two and three-and-one-half miles long. Walking the shore path s a special experience and one that is truly unique to southern Wisconsin, said George F. Hennerley, executive vice president of the Lake Geneva Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. There is no better way to literally walk through the backyards of majestic estates and view the handiwork of some of the nation's most celebrated landscape architects. According to the Geneva Lake Conservancy, many of the original landowners retained a staff of gardeners or professional landscape designers including Olaf Benson, a landscape architect for the City of Chicago; Jens Jensen, superintendent of Chicago's Humboldt Park and the Olmsted Brothers, designers of Chicago's Grant Park and whose partnership was descended from the practice of Frederick Law Olmsted, "the father of landscape architecture in America," and one of the architects behind Central Park in New York City.

Located in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva, Donian Wetland Preserve is made up of protected flood plain. The White River flows through the preserve.

signs of summer on the shorepath


Sources differ on the mileage of the Geneva Lake shorepath. But everyone agrees the walk is worth it.
The path, which is open to the public, circles the entire lake and affords hikers the chance to experience panoramic views -both of Geneva Lake and the estates that dot its shoreline. From its origins as a trail connecting Native American settlements to its present-day usage as a public hiking attraction, the shore path has timeless appeal. At more than 20 miles, the length can seem intimidating, but there are a number of ways to break the walk up into segments. Access is available at Lake Geneva, Williams Bay and Fontana parks, where hikers can find public parking. Shorepath conditions range from easy, level sidewalks to rougher terrain. Estimated walking time for the entire circuit is between eight and nine hours, depending on pace and weather conditions. Points of interest include Stone Manor, the largest lakeshore home; the Wrigley estate, a home built in the style of Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Waters; and the historic Lake Geneva Yacht Club.

ll in the details: Victorian Houses. Its sometimes used as a catchall term for houses that look old and fancy. But the Victorian era of architecture encompasses a number of distinct trends and hybrid styles, with features that render them recognizable to those in the know. Lake Genevas historic Maple Park and much of the surrounding neighborhoods are home to many examples of the styleds of this era, which spanned from 1860 to 1910. A walk through the area just northwest of downtown will put you in prime Victorian country ... and you might just be able to narrow down what style of Victorian youre looking at, with the help of a few key clues. Hunting the (not-so-elusive) Victorian Because much of the development in Lake Geneva occurred during the Victorian heyday, there are many examples of the various sub-styles. Because there was a great deal of overlap in these mini-eras of Victorian trends, these homes do have some characteristics in common:

Whats the roofline like? The primary Victorian styles tend to have roofs with steep pitches. What is the shape of the structure? An asymmetrical exterior is a predominant feature of many Victorian homes. What are the materials used? A home with a variety of textures reflects the complex Victorian style. Are there details on the facade? Are multiple colors used to highlight them? Victorian era architects borrowed freely from past styles, incorporating stick and spindle work, patterned masonry and eave brackets. story by Jessica Franzene, photos by Sarah Schauf

WHERE THE LOCALS MEET TO EAT!

ictorian Viewing: As the rst residential neighborhood in the then, Village of Lake Geneva, Maple Park centered around a town square (the actual park today) and Pioneer Cemetery. Today, a walk through the 650-some acre national historic district is a chance to view some of the citys earliest homes, including Victorian, Italianate and Revival styles. The earliest homes in the district were built in the 1840s and 1850s, but most of them were constructed between 1870 and 1920. Second Empire Victorians (c. 18551885) 1) Mansard roof 2) Dormer windows 3) Tower or cupola A good (and rare, for the area) example of Second Empire is located at 1003 Main St. The circa-1860 home has been restored and lovingly maintained.

Bridal Guide
Notes on notes
The dos and donts of thank-yous
Once you say, Ill marry you, you may be wearing more than just a ring how about a wrist brace from writing dozens upon dozens of thank-you notes? Gifts are often plentiful from events like your engagement party, bridal shower, and, of course, your wedding day. Unfortunately, telephone calls and e-mail wont t the bill here. Instead, etiquette dictates that you send a handwritten thank-you note to everyone who gives you a gift. If someone gives you a gift for your shower and another for your engagement, you have to send a separate note for each gift. Send one to everyone, even if its your best friend whom youve thanked 1,000 times over. Thank-you notes also arent just for tangible gifts like cash or those steak knives you registered for, though. Send thank-you notes to the person who let you have your engagement party at her home or who helped make your wedding day special, like your band, orist or photographer. Notes should be written on stationery that complements the wedding. They are usually small, fold-over notecards with the words Thank You or your names on the front, and matching envelopes. For less formal notes, you can buy basic thank-you cards or monogrammed or personalized stationery. Just remember to use your maiden name on any notes written before the wedding, since your married name cant be used until after the big day. You should write in blue or black ink, not a pencil or colored pen. Notes should express genuine appreciation and gratitude for the gift. They dont have to be long, but should mention the gift and how youll use it. If you got that gravy boat that was on your registry, say that you cant wait to use it this Thanksgiving. For monetary gifts, you dont have to say,

Warm-weather attire for the men in the party
Weddings are a time to get dolled up. Though some gentlemen may be tempted to wear the suit they wear to work, a formal event necessitates something a bit more remarkable. When the weather is warm, some men may scoff at the idea of wearing a full suit or even a tuxedo. But just because a person is wearing pants and a jacket doesnt mean the suit must be dark and heavy. Although dark colors are traditional for weddings, dark, heavy fabrics will absorb the suns rays, making the groom and his groomsmen uncomfortable. Even when a warm-weather wedding takes place largely indoors where it is climate controlled, many couples choose to have the ceremony outdoors, where they pose for photographs as well. The groom and his groomsmen will want to be comfortable during these times, and the right suit and fabric can make all the difference. Linen and cotton are all-natural fabrics that are made from plant bers. They are much lighter weight than wool, and linen and cotton suits may be more comfortable. But linen and cotton are highly prone to wrinkling, and a wrinkled suit will not present well in a formal setting. Cotton and linen may be best reserved for informal weddings or those that will be taking place outdoors or beachside. Seersucker suits are made from cotton in a unique weaving pattern that lets air ventilate through the material. Seersucker suits may be most popular in the southeastern United States, but they can be worn anywhere the weather is warm. Many of these suits are manufactured in a gray, blue and brown striped pattern. Again, due to the lightweight fabric, you will feel cool. For less formal weddings, a seersucker suit may t. A khaki suit or a tan one may work better if the wedding is more formal. Ensure the accessories are in place to make this look work. The suit should t well and be tailored appropriately. Sharp creases in the pants and a crisp shirt and tie can complete the look. If the groomsmen are in coordinating suits, a tan or khaki color will not look out of place. If a full suit still feels too stiff, a nice blazer paired with a complementary colored trouser may be appropriate for a less formal affair. Some grooms want to err on the side of caution and stick with a classic suit or tuxedo. In such instances, grooms may want to investigate lighter weight wools. Such suits wont be as conning as a heavier suit. Grooms wearing a tuxedo may want to choose a white

tuxedo. A white tuxedo will look pristine and t with a formal theme. And the white will reect the sun and be cooler without looking casual. A groom who does not mind a midday wardrobe change can opt to wear a standard suit or tuxedo and plan to change later on for the reception. He can coordinate with his new bride and step into something more comfortable for dancing and enjoying the ensuing party. This allows for formality when the moments call for it and comfort later on in the day. Dressing for a warm weather wedding may require a bit of ingenuity on the part of the groom. There are different fabrics and styles of suit available to present plenty of wardrobe options.

Bridal Guide
Getting the gown right
From classic to modern, theres a silhouette to t you
Few wardrobe decisions are scrutinized as much as a bride-to-bes choice of wedding gown. Finding the perfect gown that atters the future brides gure while stunning her guests and soon-to-be husband is a labor of love for many brides. The Bridal Association of America estimates a bride-to-be will spend between $1,500 and $2,000 total on her gown, veil and accessories. Brides often spend months, if not years, shoping for the right gown. Finding the right gown means having an understanding of what silhouettes are available and what atters certain body types. After all, you want to look like the best version of yourself when getting married. Here is a look of some of the common types of gown silhouettes and why choosing this shape might be right for you. A ballgown dress is truly a classic style, evoking images of fairy tale princesses. With a tted bodice and full skirt that airs at the waist, this silhouette is usually good for all body types. Because the full skirt, typically poofed-up by crinoline and will hide the hips and thighs, women with a pear shape might gravitate toward this style. The ballgown style may not be ideal for petite women, as the skirt may overwhelm their gures. Another silhouette very forgiving or appropriate for many body types is the Aline gown. A-line cut dresses should be the go-to style for anyone looking to minimize perceived aws. The cut of the dress will t to the waist and gradually fan out from the hips to form the outline of an uppercase A. When in doubt, A-line gowns are classic and sensible and a favorite among brides. Women who prefer something a little more formtting may select a trumpet silhouette. This dress is tted through the body and then the gown ares out at mid-thigh level. Women with taut stomachs and hourglass gures can benet from this

Bridal Guide
Rehearsal dinner basics: who, when and where
One of the nal responsibilities a couple has before they tie the knot is planning their rehearsal dinner. Typically the night before the wedding, the rehearsal dinner is an opportunity for the families of the bride- and groom-to-be and the members of the bridal party to get to know one another over a good meal. Planning a rehearsal dinner is much less complicated than planning the wedding, but couples still must take steps in advance of the dinner to ensure it goes smoothly. Choose the right restaurant. Couples who are having their ceremony and reception at the same venue may be able to have their rehearsal dinner at the venue as well. But many couples still prefer the rehearsal dinner be held at a different restaurant. When choosing the restaurant, be sure to make a reservation several weeks in advance and choose a restaurant thats fully capable of accommodating your party. The restaurant should have a menu thats versatile enough to accommodate guests on special diets or those who are vegetarian or vegan. The rehearsal dinner party can be quite large, so youll want to make your reservation as early as possible so you can get the restaurant of your choice. The larger the group, the earlier you should make the reservation. Invite the right guests. Some couples may be confused as to whom they should invite to their rehearsal dinners. Wedding party members and their signicant others should always make the cut, as should the parents of both the bride and groom and the person ofciating the wedding. Kids who will be in the wedding and their parents also should be invited. Many couples even invite their immediate family members and siblings, even if those relatives are not in the wedding. Determine who is paying in advance. The grooms family traditionally pays for the rehearsal dinner, but that tradition has largely fallen by the wayside. Couples should determine who will be paying for the dinner in advance so theres no confusion once the meal is over. Couples who are handling the bill for their weddings should include the rehearsal dinner in their overall wedding budget. Try to create a relaxed atmosphere. Many of the people invited to the rehearsal dinner may be meeting one another for the rst time, so couples should aim to create a relaxed atmosphere to reduce any nervousness and tension. The

Thank-yous
CONT. FROM PAGE 36

Thank you for your $100 check. Rather, say what you will do with the gift, such as put it toward a payment on a home. Get started on those thank-you notes as soon as possible. You dont have to write all 300 in one day. Pace yourself. The rule of thumb is to mail shower thank-you notes within two to three weeks after the party. Early wedding gifts should be noted before your

wedding day arrives. Old-fashioned etiquette says you have a year to thank everyone else who sends you a wedding gift, but try to get them nished by about three months after the wedding. The process could take a little longer if youre waiting on photo thank-you cards from your photographer. Get the job done in that time frame by staying organized. Make sure no cards get separated from their gifts. Keep a record of all the

gifts you received in a notebook, on your computer or on index cards. Be specic. Dont just say atware say Mikasa atware. Record the givers name, when you got the gift, what it was and the date you sent the thank-you note. By the time you nish that last note, youll be a professional at thank-you note writing.

style gown, but those who do not want anything tight in the hips and thighs will want to select something else. A bit more tted than the trumpet, this silhouette is close to the body from the chest down to the knee. The skirt then ares out slightly by the knee. Tall, thin women generally look best in this type of gown. A balance between a traditional A-line and a more tted gown, the modied A-line does not are out as much. But it does are out enough from the waist to hide areas around the hips and thighs. This is another good choice for a wide array of gures. Brides who do not want a gown that reaches the oor can opt for a tea length dress, on which the skirt generally falls between the ankle and the knee. Lean brides who want simplicity in their gowns can opt for a sheath silhou-

ette. The narrow shape of the gown from the neckline to the hem will denitely accentuate the body shape. Therefore, women who are shy may want to select a different option. Petite women who may be overwhelmed by more fabric can usually wear a sheath gown with success.Although a bride may have a wedding gown style in mind, it is a good idea to try on a number of different silhouettes to nd the one that is most attering. Bridal salon employees are usually well-versed in matching body type to a gown and can prove invaluable when selecting a dress.

rehearsal dinner may also be the only time couples can relax and let their hair down with their family and friends, as the wedding day itself and the ensuing reception can be hectic. So take advantage of the more relaxed atmosphere and share a few laughs with those closest to you. Bring the gifts for members of your wedding party. The rehearsal dinner is when brides- and grooms-

to-be give their bridesmaids and groomsmen their gifts. If the gifts are especially large, then you might want to give them before you enter the restaurant or even back at the hotel. But in many cases, its perfectly alright to give out the bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts at the rehearsal dinner. Allow time for toasts. Toasts are not just a tradition of the wedding reception, but of the rehearsal dinner as well. The couples parents often want to toast

the bride- and groom-to-be, and such a toast may be conducted in tandem. But the groom is also expected to give a toast, most notably to his bride-to-be. In addition, the couple

walking down the aisle can toast their bridal party during the rehearsal dinner, thanking them for being a part of their big day. Rehearsal dinners are typically a fun chance for

couples and their families and friends to enjoy an intimate and relaxing dinner with one another the night before the couples big day. But couples should still follow certain protocols.

Transportation for your wedding guests
Couples have a lot of factors competing for attention when planning their weddings. From nding a reception venue to choosing the menu to pinpointing the perfect honeymoon destination, couples must make many decisions on their way to becoming man and wife. One decision thats easily overlooked is how guests will get around come the weekend of the wedding. This is an especially important consideration for couples whose guest list includes many out-of-town guests that will be ying in for the festivities. Though the bride- and groom-to-be typically will not have to pay for their guests transportation all weekend long, it can be considerate for couples to share a variety of transportation options with their guests prior to the big day. The following are a handful of ways guests might be able to get around town come the weekend of your wedding. Public transportation is arguably the most affordable way for guests to get around.

Bridal Guide
to and from the ceremony and reception for any guests staying at the hotel. This ensures no one gets lost on the way to and from the ceremony or reception to ensure guests make it home safe after a reception where alcohol was being served.

lic transportation is often the most practical option as well. If your wedding will be taking place in a big city, provide a basic rundown of the public transportation options available in that city, including a bus schedule or a map of the subway system. These can be linked to a wedding Web site or included in the welcome bag awaiting guests at the hotel. Couples getting married in a larger city may also want to choose a hotel that is close to public transportation so guests can easily get to and fro throughout the weekend. Major airports all include rental car kiosks where arriving passengers can reserve a vehicle for the duration of their trip. But renting directly from an airport agency is typically more expensive than renting from an off-airport site. Couples who want to save their guests some money can provide their guests with a list of off-airport rental car agencies with more competitive rates. Such agencies may even pick your guests up at the airport. If not, guests might be able to take a shuttle to their hotels before picking up their rental car from a nearby agency. If your wedding reception and Friday night meetup will be taking place in close proximity to each other, then your guests may not even need to arrange for their own transportation. A taxi service to and from the airport might be all the transportation they need for the weekend. When planning activities for the weekend, make an effort to keep everything within walking distance of the hotel so your out-of-town guests wont have to face more expenses. Whether your guests are traveling far and wide to attend your wedding or

live right around the corner from the venue, its best to arrange for shuttle service
