genuine residents.
She had formed the Bryant Foundation to
honor her late husband, Edwin, one of the
founders of Nelson Muffler Corp (later Nelson Industries and now Cummins). She and
her husband were dedicated to the Stoughton
community, and after her death, Bunting and
Gryttenholm felt a strong desire to honor her
legacy.

Two weeks ago, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake devastated


Nepal.
A country where people
already are so poor, said
Stoughton resident Beth Tomczyk, is now much worse off.
A lot of those poor people
have now lost everything they
worked their whole lives for,
Tomczyk said.
The disaster led her to start
a fundraising account to help
the people of Nepal get food,
shelter and water. Tomczyks
sister has served as a missionary in the country for 12
years, and Tomczyk said she
simply wanted to find a way
herself to help the people her
sister had grown so close to in
the country.
According to the GoFundMe page, Tomczyks sister
and brother-in-laws house
was spared, though their
neighborhood was hit hard.
Their house has no electricity or water, all broken
pipes and windows, the entry
reads. Many of their close
(Nepali) friends have serious damage or have lost their
homes, as most of them are
made of mud.
When she started the page,
her sister had more than 100
people camping in her yard.
As we sit here in our safe
homes and have clean water,
we want to help, Tomczyk
wrote.
Tomczyk also visited the
country herself two years
ago, and said the earthquake,
which killed more than 7,300,
according to the Associated
Press, has left people there
with even less than the little
they had.
I know (firsthand) how
poor these people are, she
said. It was a life-changing
trip for me.
Tomczyk said the money
goes straight to her sisters
bank account in Nepal, and
her sister has used the money
to help pay for food and other
supplies.

Its a tribute to the late Janet Bryant and a


gift to the Stoughton community.
The new Norwegian heritage center, Livsreise in downtown Stoughton, is the culmination of three-and-a-half years of work, and its
ready for a May 16 grand opening.
Norwegian for lifes journey, Livsreise
(Lifs-rye-sa) is the brainchild of Bryant Foundation managers Jerry Gryttenholm and June
Bunting, who took the project from a concept
on a blank sheet of paper in 2011 to the
realization of a 15,000-square-foot education center that tells the stories of Norwegian
emigrants who arrived in Wisconsin between
1825 and 1910.
Its been under construction for more than a
year and has been the source of much anticipation in the community, both for what will be
inside and the effect some people hope it will
have on downtown, bringing in new visitors.
While some reporters and community leaders have taken tours of the facility, whats
inside has been largely a mystery for the rest
of Stoughton. Thats been saved for the Syttende Mai week grand opening.
The bright, open interior consists of an
exhibition hall, a small seating lounge and

SHS teacher, senior win awards


Benedict, Wendt
honored by Kohl
Foundation
Scott De Laruelle
Unified Newspaper Group

Stoughton High School has


both an educator and scholar
who were among the best in
Wisconsin this school year.
SHS chemistry teacher
Eric Benedict and senior Jessica Wendt were among those
honored when 2015 Herb
Kohl Foundation awards for
students and teachers were
awarded last month. The
foundation provided $3,000
to 101 teachers and their
schools in the form of fellowships, and to 163 graduating high school students as
excellence scholarships.
Award recipients are selected
by a statewide committee
composed of civil leaders,
representatives of educationrelated associations and the
programs co-sponsors.
Education is the key to
the future of Wisconsin and
our nation, Kohl said in
the news release. I am very
proud of the accomplishments of these students and
teachers, and look forward to
the great contributions they
will make in the future.

The educator

The scholar
According to the release
from the Kohl Foundation, excellence scholarship
recipients demonstrated
excellence in the academic
arena and high motivation
to achieve, have displayed a
broad range of activity and
leadership outside the academic setting, and have
shown strong promise for

Kohl Foundation scholarships


The Kohl Foundation Scholarship and Fellowship
program was established by retired U.S. Sen. Herb
Kohl in 1990 and in recognition of the foundations
25th anniversary, Kohl has increased awards to
each scholar and fellow to $3,000, and $3,000
to each fellows school. Previously each award
recipient received $1,000. To date, the foundation
has awarded $9 million to Wisconsin educators,
students and schools.
succeeding in college and
beyond.
That description certainly
applies to the industrious
Wendt, who is planning to
attend UW-Madison this fall
to pursue a degree in agribusiness management.
She said she knew about
the Kohl program from her
father, Jerry, a long-time SHS
teacher, who was a past recipient. But she was pleasantly
surprised to hear there was
also an award for students.
Wendt has held plenty of
offices in the FFA and 4-H
clubs, and also served as a
class officer at SHS, including two stints as class president. She is also involved in
the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes and the National
Honor Society, and a variety
of local clubs and community
service organizations.
Wendt said shes still
shocked she won the award,
considering all the other
deserving students.
Im very blessed to be
given the opportunity to participate in these organizations, she said.
Wendt said shes looking
forward to next month, when
she and her father whos
retiring from teaching in the
district will be retiring
together. He served as her
FFA adviser and a teacher at
SHS.
We really got to work
close together and experience all of my FFA successes
together, she said.
After graduation, Wendt
said she would like to work in
the field of agriculture, either

business or economics, where


she can use her knowledge to
help others.
I would like to develop
more efficient ways to produce and distribute food to
Third World countries, she
said. There's nothing more
gratifying then working
towards a goal to provide better quality of life for people
all around the world.

Teenager arrested at
the scene
A Stoughton man was
hospitalized last week after
being stabbed in his home on
North Page Street.
Stoughton Police chief
Greg Leck said Monday that
the victim, a 42-year-old
man, was treated for nonlife threatening injuries and
released.
The Stoughton Police
Department said in a news
release that it arrested a
17-year-old suspect around
1 a.m. Thursday, April 30,
after being called to a home
on the 600 block of North
Page Street. According to
the release, police and EMS
responded to a report of a
homeowner who had apprehended a prowler.
Police found the homeowner had been stabbed multiple times.
The victim was transported to Stoughton Hospital
by the Stoughton EMS, and
later transferred to a Madison Hospital by Med-Flight

Courier Hub

for further treatment, police


said.
The suspect who was
identified by The McFarland
Thistle and WKOW as Tyler
Bexson of McFarland was
apprehended at the scene and
booked into the Dane County
Jail on felony charges related
to the stabbing. News outlets reported that Bexson
was released from jail on a
$10,000 bond.
The stabbing allegedly
took place after a disagreement about payment for a
$500 prom dress belonging
to the homeowners daughter after plans to attend the
McFarland High School
prom changed last week,
WKOW reported.
Leck told the Hub Monday that no charges had been
filed against the teen, but that
17-year-olds can be charged
as adults in Wisconsin.
Police said the investigation was ongoing. Police said
the incident was not random
and there is no danger to the
public at this time.

According to the release,


fellowship recipients are chosen for their superior ability
to inspire a love of learning
in their students, their ability
to motivate others, and their
leadership and service within
and outside the classroom.
For Benedict, a Lawrence
University graduate in his
10th year teaching at SHS,
teaching is in his blood. His
grandfather and grandmother, both of his parents and a
brother are all fellow teachers. His father also was a
recipient of a Kohl Fellowship award.
Growing up, I loved helping others and knew from
watching my parents that I
wanted to be just like them,
Benedict said. I really
enjoyed school and wanted
to share the knowledge that I
gained during my educational
years with others.
When it came time to
choose a favorite subject,
Benedict said science and
specifically chemistry just
seemed to make sense and
click for him in school.
My father told me that science teachers would always
be in need, so I chose chemistry as a major, he said, noting he also considered medical school.
After college, Benedict taught chemistry at

Mukwonago High School for


two years before enrolling in
a PhD program in Organic
Chemistry at UW-Madison.
But during his second year,
he found he missed teaching
and didnt enjoy the research,
so he left with his Masters Degree to teach math
at McFarland High School
before coming to Stoughton.
I like the smaller high
school environment compared with Mukwonago,
he said. I also really enjoy
working with the phenomenal science department at
SHS. I learn so much from all
of them.
Benedict said the best thing
about teaching chemistry
and science in general is the
excitement in being able to
see students actually observe
or create chemical reactions.
I really enjoy doing
demonstrations so students
can witness how amazing
chemistry can be, he said.
I really enjoy teaching high
school students we can
joke around and have a lot
of fun in the classroom while
working through challenging
material.
As he continues his teaching career, Benedict is trying
to follow in the footsteps of
his father, an educator for 36
years who he calls his main
role model in life.
What impresses me still
about his teaching is that he
was constantly innovating
and keeping up with the latest
technology until the last day
of his career, Benedict said.
His approach to teaching
inspires me every day.

Letters to the editor

New developers agreement for


KPW should be dead on arrival
If the KPW development has
been on your mind, make sure you
stay tuned because the times they
are a changin.
The referendum results showed
a lack of public support for the
Kettle Park West development so
now the developer has decided to
renegotiate the agreement to keep
it alive.
The people have spoken, they
do NOT want the project and
more importantly they do NOT
want the city giving any TIF
money for the project. It should
be DOA - dead on arrival, no bait
and switch scheme to fund it differently should be accepted to circumvent the voice of the people.
The developer had been adamant about needing $5.1 million
in TIF to get this project off the
ground. But now he says can come
up with private funds to complete
the infrastructure 100 percent up
front and then get the TIF money
on a pay as you go schedule. I
dont think so. The people have
spoken, they dont want this project and they dont want to fund it
with tax dollars.
Mayor Olson made comments
in a WSJ article about the people
of Stoughton not really understanding TIF and that may have
led to the results of the election. Well TIF, Tax Incremented
Financing has the word tax in it

and taxes are paid by the people,


whether it is up front or over a 20
year period, taxes are paid by people and the people dont want to
give tax money toward a development anchored by the largest and
richest corporation in the world
to build a ghetto strip mall in the
middle of a corn field on the outskirts of town!
When Wal-Mart tried to build
a SuperCenter here in 2003, there
was large community dissension which resulted in a Big Box
Ordinance that would hold the
big box store accountable for any
infrastructure costs so that the
people of Stoughton would NOT
be financially burdened by the
cost. Former Mayor Johnson was
adamant about the city not subsidizing that project. However,
Mayor Olson and 6 alders agreed
to deviate from that ordinance and
offer TIF so the people of Stoughton will be stuck with the burden
of $5.1 million in infrastructure
costs.
We already have a Wal-Mart
and most of the other stores that
are proposed to go in that development. The KPW project is the
tail end of a trend, like selling
pagers in the world of cell phones,
it needs to be dead on arrival.

and market it.


That would still leave decisions in the hands of the Common Council and it would keep
its recommendations independent
of political struggles.
A more complex solution, but
one worth exploring nonetheless, is making adjustments to the
citys staffing structure, much
like Stoughton did less than two
years ago with its clerks office.
After years of struggling to keep
overloaded clerks, city leaders
finally agreed homegrown staff
brought in to do other functions
did not have the needed expertise
to handle human resources.
Similarly, there are no positions in city government truly
suited for economic development.
The planner takes some of
those duties, the mayor takes
some and the finance director
takes some. But civil engineering
and finance backgrounds arent
ideal for grabbing the attention of
developers and expanding businesses, and an elected official
should never be counted on for
that sort of expertise, because
that job is providing vision and
direction, not advanced analysis
and marketing skills.
Either way, this summer is a
good time to take action.
The most obvious reason is
that KPW has run its course
politically. Its also a good time
in terms of the economy, with
developers all over the area looking for good opportunities.

Taking quick action would


also allow the city to combine its

the school districts update of its
visioning plan, the 21C: Creating

The original plan was built
nearly four years ago, when
the district brought almost 100
community members together
to discuss Stoughtons identity
and plan for the future, and its
planning a smaller review of that
conference later this year. City
leaders should take what theyve
learned from the referendums and
either be part of that discussion
or pay careful attention to what
comes from it.
Hohol, a previously ardent supporter of KPW, deserves credit
for taking the referendums seriously and adhering to the votes
of his constituents, who said yes
to KPW in his district but no to
tax-increment financing of it.
And members of the Redevelopment Authority ought to be commended for continuing to move
ahead on redevelopment plans
quietly while the cacophony of
KPW disagreements grabbed the
spotlight.
But buying and redeveloping Millfab and the area around
it will take years, and the city
should now be able to discuss
growth without a debate about
which side has more support. Its
time to make our priorities clear
and get professional help.

Board approves plan for


teacher compensation

Commission reviews Millfab


rezone, dog boarding laws

The Stoughton School


Board approved an alternative compensation system for educators Monday
night that will allow the
district to recognize professional growth while living
within its financial means.
The alternative compensation system, passed by a 7-2
vote, will be implemented
beginning in the 2015-16
school year and is a product of a year-and-a-half of
work by a committee of educators, administrators and
school board members.
When implemented, no
educator will make less than
they now receive through
contracted pay, although
their future raises will be
based on district-approved
professional learning that
strengthens classroom
instructional practices.
By the 2016-17 school
year, each educator will be
placed in one of four levels,
depending on characteristics
they have already demonstrated as an educator.
Each level will have its
own salary range, although
the ranges will overlap.
Every year, the school board
will determine a general

increase in employee pay


based on the districts budget and collective bargaining requirements.
An educator has an opportunity to move levels when
they are evaluated under the
states new Educator Effectiveness system (standardized evaluations). An educator can move into a higher
salary range if he or she has
demonstrated a set of characteristics and expectations
for an educator in that level.
Characteristics that affect
an educators placement in
a level include the extent
to which the educator:
shares effective educational
practices with colleagues,
conducts research into better instructional methods,
participates in professional
development opportunities, analyzes student performance data, implements
goals for individual schools
and for student learning,
assumes leadership roles
within their respective
schools and fosters a general
school climate conducive to
student achievement.

City of Stoughton Planning Commission.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers inside the Public Safety Building, 321, S. Fourth
St.
Potential agenda items include:
A public hearing to rezone the vacant Millfab
property from heavy industrial use to a more redevelopment-friendly multi-family residential use. The
zoning could be changed again should a developer purchase the property and want a mixed-use development
on the site.
Ordinance changes to allow for a doggy day care in
the central business district. The commission will have
to clarify that while dog boarding would be allowed, a
commercial horse stables would not be allowed in the
city limits.
A public hearing to allow a seven-unit residential
building at 2301 Lincoln Ave. The commission will
also review the site plan and make a recommendation
to the Common Council.
A meeting packet will be uploaded to the citys agenda website stoughtoncitydocs.com when the agenda

As students at St. Ann


School gear up for their
May 8-9 drama club production of The Lion King,
Jr., afternoons in Healy
Hall sound more like life
on the African Savanna
than life in Stoughton.
DeeDee Bouzek, director of the St. Anns drama
program, said there is extra
excitement as the school is
one of the first in the country to put on the musical,
the rights of which were
released in January.
Its very exciting for
the kids and all of us, she
said.
The Lion King, Jr. is
closely based on the 1997
Broadway musical and
1994 Disney film. Bouzek
said staging a show for the
first time presents a lot
of challenges, like creating new costumes, sets,
and choreography, but this
musical has its own unique
task.
One of the hardest
things about this particular show is learning some
of the chants, which are
actually sung in Zulu, she
said. The kids are doing
an amazing job with it.

Observe the Sabbath


Even God had to rest after six days of
labor, and the observance of the Sabbath,
besides commemorating that day of divine
rest, is instituted to give all who labor a rest
from their toil. Notice how in the formulation
from Exodus, the requirement is extended
even to ones servants and animals:
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it
holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your
work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the
Lord your God. On it you shall not do any
work, neither you, nor your son or daughter,
nor your male or female servant, nor your
animals, nor any foreigner residing in your
towns. (Exodus 20:8-10) For those of us
who are inclined to work seven days a week,
this is surely a good rule. Everyone needs
rest, and with work taken out of the picture
we have time to worship, time to spend with
family and friends, and time to recharge lifes
batteries. Throughout the Old Testament, we
see unequivocal statements commanding
us to observe the Sabbath, with plenty of
warnings from the prophets if we dont. In
the New Testament, however, we see a loosening of the particular rules governing the
Sabbath, in essence saying that the Sabbath
was instituted for us and should be observed
as each person or church sees fit.
Christopher Simon
Then he said to them, The Sabbath was
made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
So the Son of Man is Lord even of the
Sabbath.

Depending on the breed and temperament, animals can actually help
reduce stress and increase productivity at work, making the daily grind
more enjoyable.
Dr. Brian Hoelscher, associate veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of
Verona, said animals can be a stress
reliever for employees, as long as the
pet is comfortable, safe and at ease in
the workplace.
While most pets who come to work
go home at night with their owners,
thats not the case at a business in
Fitchburg, where a cat has made an
office his permanent home.
Jim Mandt, owner of Mandt Sandfill, said three years ago, his daughters found a cat they wanted on Craigslist, but he didnt last long in their
house because of his shedding. Now
weighing in at 27 pounds, give or take
a treat, Rocky Mandt is the full-time
office feline at the trucking and excavating company.
Since the office is also open on Saturdays, Rocky spends every day and
night there. He will jump (or roll) off
the counter and greet you at the door,
if he feels like it. Jims sister-in-law,
Debbie Mandt, enjoys working in the
office with Rocky. She believes that
he helps reduce stress in the workplace.
I look forward to having him in
the office every day, she said. All
of our employees love him. Hes kind
of like a permanent fixture here. This
is his home.
Debbie is also responsible for

Zoey

Zoey
Owner name: Scott and
Sara Nachreiner
City/Town of Residence: Stoughton
Pet name: Zoey
Pets age: 4 years old
Breed: Yorkipoo
How long have you
had your pet? Almost
four years. We got her
when she was 8 weeks old.
What makes your
pet special? Zoey is an
8-pound bundle of energy.
She is so tiny yet has more
energy than any dog Ive
ever seen. Whenever she
gets excited about something, she spins around in
circles. She especially gets
excited about trips to the
dog park.
People at the dog park
always comment about
how much energy she has
and how fast she runs.
Shes even been referred
to as a wind-up toy.

When shes not running


around, she loves to cuddle.
Zoey likes people more
than she likes other dogs.
Shell run up to everyone at the dog park or on
walks. Shes also very particular about things and
has to have things a certain way. Shes a creature
of habit.
Funny story about
my pet: Zoey loves to
lie underneath the blankets either on the couch
or in bed. She has learned
that if she paws at either
myself or my husband, we
will let her underneath the
blanket. If you dont let
her under right away, she
will paw at you until you
do. In a last ditch effort,
shell try to nuzzle her
way in but usually cant
get all the way under until
you help her.

Try taking your pet camping this summer


For those who enjoy the
great outdoors, camping
during the springtime can be
a perfect weekend getaway.
However, if you dont want
to leave your four-legged
friends behind while setting
out on your adventure, try
bringing them along.
Many campgrounds
allow pets, with certain
rules and regulations, said
Dr. Mark Stickney, clinical associate professor at
the Texas A&M College
of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical Sciences.
Often, the rules regarding pets can be seen posted
on their website, and if not,
questions can be easily
answered over the phone.
However, it is not advised
that you show up with your
pet without prior research
and consent.
Most rules will include
things such as having your
pet on a leash, making sure
they are supervised at all
times, and requiring proof
of vaccinations, Stickney
said. Even if they dont
require health records or
vaccination certificates, its
a good idea to bring them
along just in case.

Many campgrounds allow pets, with certain rules and regulations.

Just as you need to pack


food and other essentials
for yourself, dont forget
to pack necessities for your
pets as well. Some items
youll need to bring are
plenty of food, a pet first-aid
kit, a harness, and a leash.
Even if the campsite has natural water resources, such as
streams or lakes, you must
still bring plenty of water for
your pet to drink throughout

your stay. There are many


different diseases they can
catch by drinking from a
pond or lake.
Coming into contact with
wild animals is a definite
risk when you are out in
a national forest or grassland. Although most of the
wildlife you run into wants
to keep away from you as
well, you should have a
way of containing your pet

just in case.
If your pet does get into
a tussle with a wild animal,
you do not want to get into
the middle of it, Stickney
said. There is a very good
chance you will be bitten or
harmed. Your best method
of action is calling off your
pet or to try scaring away
the wild animal.
In order to prevent such
situations in the first place,
it is a good idea to keep
your pets close to you
throughout your camping
expedition and to have a
leash or harness available at
all times.
Before setting off on your
camping adventure, make
sure your pets are up-to-date
on all of their vaccinations,
especially rabies. Depending on the campsites location, you may consult with
your veterinarian about any
other vaccinations that your
pet may need, as well as
discuss appropriate flea and
tick control.
To make camping with
your pet an exciting experience for the both of you, be
sure to research the campsite ahead of time, take note
of any restrictions or regulations, and bring the essentials along with you.

Pet name: Kona Topp
Pets age: 11 1/2 years

Breed: Border collie/
black lab
How long have you had
your pet? 10 1/2 years.
What makes your pet
special? Kona is a very wellbehaved dog. Sometimes
we think she is human and
understands everything we
say to her or ask her to do.
She is very affectionate
and always wants her belly
rubbed or takes her nose
and nudges your hand to pet

her.
Her grandparents live
across the street and she
gets very excited when we
ask if she wants to go to
Grandma and Grandpas
house; she sits on the curb
and waits until we tell her
its OK to cross the road.
On April 7, Kona became
a big sister to a very precious, adorable baby girl
,and she has become very
protective of her. Kona constantly wants to be around
the baby and also very close
to whoever is holding her or
laying right next to her bassinet.
As you can see by her
picture, she is a very proud
big furry sister.

Mammary cancer is aggressive in feline friends


Breast cancer is unfortunately
prevalent not only among humans,
but also in our feline friends. Just
like with people, mammary cancer
is very aggressive in cats, and they
have the best chance of survival if
caught early.
Eighty-five percent of mammary
tumors found in cats are malignant,
and more that 80 percent will eventually spread to other locations in
the body, such as the lymph nodes,
lungs, bone and internal organs,
said Dr. Jacqueline Bloch, medical oncology resident at the Texas
A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences.

It is found that Siamese and


domestic shorthair cats are more at
risk for mammary tumors. However,
it is a risk for any cat to develop a
mammary tumor, and like with
other cancers, it is important to get a
proper diagnosis.
Mammary tumors in cats are
best diagnosed by a biopsy; this
helps us to give prognostic information to the owners as well as diagnosis, Bloch said. Sometimes we can
obtain diagnosis by a relatively noninvasive needle biopsy.
Similar to dealing with other
tumors, the best treatment option
is to surgically remove them.

Veterinarians generally recommend


a staged bilateral mastectomy, or the
removal of all the mammary glands
in a staged manner.
Cats have four pairs of mammary glands, and they are intimately associated and share lymphatic
drainage, which is why we recommend removing them all, Bloch
said.
Before executing such an extreme
surgery, Bloch explains that they
will perform what is called staging
tests to look for evidence of cancer
that has spread to other parts of the
body.
This normally means an

abdominal ultrasound to look for


spread to regional lymph nodes or
liver and spleen, and chest radiographs to look for evidence of
spread to the lungs, Bloch said. If
these show no evidence of disease,
we recommend going forward with
the surgery.
Depending on the case, chemotherapy may be recommend following surgery if the tumor is very
aggressive and the patient proves to
be a good candidate.
Although it is impossible to completely prevent mammary cancer,
the early spaying of cats is very
protective against developing these

tumors. Spaying a kitten before six


months of age can ultimately reduce
the risk of developing breast cancer
by 91 percent. Bloch said.
Regularly examining your cats
by rubbing their belly and gently
squeezing the mammary glands,
as well as taking them in for regular check-ups at the veterinarian,
is effective for early detection and
catching the cancer in time, for the
best possible outcome.

Create a Backyard Getaway with the Help of


Moyers Landscape Services and Hometown Nurseries, Inc.!
The anticipation of full-on spring bloom can be very
exciting, as we walk around our yards and watch the
buds of various perennials and shrubs play peek-aboo with one another. Then the thoughts of how we
can further improve our outdoor surroundings come to
the forefront of our minds. Why squeeze into an airline
seat this summer for that vacation? Why not instead,
walk to a staycation in your own backyard? When
that time of making changes does arrive, Moyers can
assist in making the dream a reality.
Founded in 1986, by Dave Moyer, Moyers Landscape
Services & Hometown Nurseries, Inc., is now located on
a former dairy and tobacco farm, and has been proudly serving Stoughton and surrounding communities
since 1990. The second generation of family ownership
is continuing with Jeff (a graduate of Stoughton High
School) and wife, Emily Moyer. The father/son team,
both hold B.S. in Ornamental Horticulture.
Moyers is truly a one stop shop for the maintenance
and beautification of your yard and landscape. They
have hundreds of varieties of shrubs and trees to a
wide selection of pavers and stones to build an outdoor
patio or serene waterfall. The Moyers staff know what
plants will thrive in the harsh elements of the Wisconsin climate too. As you peruse the grounds, the staff
will be right there to answer possible questions about

an emphasis on outdoor hardscapes, or patios that


double as kitchens or gathering places. Many people
are continuing to invest money back into their homes,
Jeff Moyer states. Homeowners often ask the Moyers
staff, were not traveling as much now, so what can
we do to make our home a vacation spot? The process of making that backyard a vacation wonderland
is not that difficult to realize. After deciding on the
types of materials you prefer, our experienced design
staff will create a professional two or three dimensional plan for you. We also prepare a detailed proposal
estimate, broken into convenient phases for your reference. Moyer explains. Then after final approval, our
professional, experienced crews start your project to
make your dreams finally a reality!
Moyers Inc., is celebrating its 29th year in business. Along the way, the hard work and dedication of
the Moyers staff and company as a whole has indeed
paid off. Most recently in 2014, one of the Landscape
Designers was nominated for and won the Wisconsin
Masonry Alliance-Excellence in Hardscaping; Designer of the Year Award (among small to large sale landscaped design/build firms in Wisconsin). For 2015,
types of plants, mulches and hardscape you are interested in using at your home. Moyers Inc. employs
some of the best Green Industry Staff in the Madison
Market! We heavily invest in further training, certification and development of the full-time team. Jeff
Moyer states. We have three wonderfully thoughtful
and professional individuals on our landscape design

team: Matt Hanna, Kevin


Smits, and Brit McCoy. In the

and landscape supply, customers can rely on the educational and professional guidance of Jeff Wood and Dave

Stoughton High School head football coach and assistant wrestling coach Jason Thiry stepped down from his positions on April 28 after accepting an offer on the
Prairie du Chien board of education. Thiry coached the Vikings football team to its first playoff appearance in 16 years this past fall, and he helped coach two state
wrestling champions the past two seasons.

Other opportunities
Thiry helped Vikings end
16-year playoff drought
Jeremy Jones
Sports editor

In two seasons as the Stoughton High School football coach


Jason Thiry led the Vikings to a
7-12 record, but more importantly
helped the program end a 16-year
playoff drought last fall.
Thiry, however, wont be back
for a third season at reins after
announcing his resignation late last
month.
Citing a desire to pursue a new
career opportunity, Thiry officially announced his resignation
Tuesday, April 28, following the
approval of his hiring by the Prairie du Chien board of education.
Thiry, who moved to Stoughton
from Morton, Ill., said he wont be
coaching in Prairie du Chien where
he was hired as Dean of Students.
His wife, who is also an educator, had been a stay-at-home

mother, who was looking to return


to the classroom.
This was a great opportunity
for me to move up in the educational world and for my wife and
me to both have a teaching job
in the same town, Thiry said.
Teaching and education is what
pays the bills. I have goals Id like
to reach professionally and this
seemed like the right opportunity
and the right fit for us.
Thiry said as Dean of Students,
hell oversee day-to-day discipline
similar to an assistant principal in
the Prairie du Chien intermediate
school (2-8 grade).
The Thirys have three children and are expecting another in
November.
The timing was probably
appropriate for me to put my whistle down for awhile, Thiry said.
Being from northeast Iowa,
Thiry is very familiar with the
Prairie du Chien area. He said the
decision to move one wasnt based
on being closer to his hometown,
though.

He and his family will do just


fine, they have a great opportunity as a family, Stoughton athletic director and Prairie du Chien
almunus Mel Dow said. The role
he was hired for he will continue
to teach the same lessons yet to a
different group of kids in a new
setting.
Thiry said since the announcement a lot of the community has
reached out to thank him for the
relationships, time spent and
what was accomplished in a short
amount of time.
Without a doubt Jasons
strength was his relationship with
his student-athletes, Dow said.
The lessons he taught them on
character, leadership, and belief
was valued by the kids and the parents of those kids. He was a players coach, yet had expectations of
the throwback coach of following
leadership.
Thiry said while several of his
players were a little shocked to
hear he wouldnt be coming back,
theyve come around over the last

couple of days.
They understand that in life
your family comes first and thats
what this decision was based off,
he said. We have nothing but
great memories from Stoughton.
Dow said the posting for the
SHS head football coach closes
May 12 with the district looking to
start interviews by the end of the
week and finalize things the week
of the 18th.
Whoever fills the vacancy is
going to be fortunate enough to
have an outstanding senior class
with lots of experience.
Ive had a chance to meet
some great people and coach with
great coaches, Thiry said. Ive
coached great players that Im
lucky to be able to call friends for
the rest of my life. Thats what
football is all about developing
relationships.
Ultimately, thats what lifes
about, surrending yourself with
good people. I know Ive done that
here, and Im fortunate for that.

Anthony Iozzo

The Stoughton High School


lacrosse team improved to 8-1
overall (7-0 in the Madison Area
Lacrosse Association White
Division) with wins over La
Crosse Central and DeForest last
week.

Stoughton 17, Lax. Central 4


Senior Dylan Wenker scored
seven goals and added an assist
in the Vikings 17-4 drubbing of
La Crosse Central on April 28.
Sophomores Tanner Gutche
and Sam Onsager also picked
up multiple goals. Gutche had
three goals and two assists, and
Onsager collected two goals and

two assists.
Sophomore Dylan Gross had
a goal and an assist, while junior
Ethan Olsen collected a goal and
two assists.
Senior Rob Volk, sophomore
Zach Scheel and freshman Quinn
Link all added goals.
Junior Jack Anderson finished
with 10 saves.

Stoughton 7, DeForest 3
Gutche led Stoughton with
three goals and an assist, and
Onsager added two goals in a 7-3
win over DeForest on Friday.
Gross and Wenker both added
goals, and Volk and Link picked
up assists.
Anderson finished with nine
saves.

Stoughton High School senior


Ashli Stolen will
have a busy offseason of golf this
summer before she
heads off to Cardinal Stritch University in the fall to
play collegiately at
the National Asso- Stolen
ciation of Intercollegiate Athletics
level.
Stolen, who was ranked in the
top 10 in 2014 in the Wisconsin
Junior PGA tour, was selected to
be a part of Team Wisconsin in
the annual Ryder Cup type event
against Team Minnesota June
28-29 at StoneRidge Golf Course
in Stillwater, Minn.
Stolen said she watched
Stoughton graduate Becky
Klongland play on the team
and a few other friends over the
years, and it is a big accomplishment for her to finally be able to
play for Team Wisconsin.
Stolen collected 587.17 points
during the 2014 tour, which was
10th best in the state. Since that
time, she qualified for the WIAA
Division 1 state girls golf tournament in October where she
finished tied for 12th place and
has signed a National Letter of
Intent at Cardinal Stritch.
This summer, she will be trying to help Team Wisconsin
retain the Junior Cup against
Team Minnesota. Last year,
Team Wisconsin won 21- 15.
It is going to be a super cool
experience. I hope that we can
keep the cup in Wisconsin, Stolen said. We are a great group
that can work together. Hopefully, I will be one to contribute
to the win.
Besides the pride of playing for
Team Wisconsin, Stolen is also
excited to team up with some of
the best golfers in the state.
Most of the girls on the team,
I have become super close with
them as the years went on, so
being able to be on the team
with them and working together
should be really fun, she said.
Stolen said she will play in
a few tournaments before the
Junior Cup and will also try
and get in a practice round
with another girl on the team at
StoneRidge before the event.
All of that experience should
help her as she gets ready to play
for Cardinal Stritch, Stolen added.
Tournaments really help you
prepare for competition because
you are playing against other
people. So I think as long as I
keep my concentration and I do
well in the tournaments, I think
that should help with the competition I will see at college golf,
she said.
The Junior Cup started in 1998
and has switched from Minnesota and Wisconsin golf courses
every year since.

Vikings slide into second place in Badger Conference

Its a very equal playing field this

We had slow bats to start the game,

Playing back-to-back games continued to be a challenge for local teams

It was an up and d
own
week for the Stoughton
High School baseball
team, which split four
g a m e s t o m o v e t o 8 -9
overall (5-2 Badger South
Conference).
With expectations high
after a top-20 preseason
ranking, the Vikings have
shown signs of how good
they can be at times, but
there have been other
days with uncharacteristic
results.
Stoughton knocked off
conference foe Fort Atkinson 9- 1 Thursday, but it
dropped Mondays game
to Madison Edgewood,
5- 3. The Vikings defeated
DeForest 8- 2 in first game
of a doubleheader Saturday but followed it up with
a 13-3 loss to Madison
West.
What we want to see is
motivation from our players, head coach Jeremy
Dunnihoo said. The guys
came into the season with
a high ranking and havent
lived up to it at this point.
They showed flashes of it,
but at other times, we have
looked like we shouldnt
win any games.
We have to find, as
individuals and as a team,
what is going to motivate
us and carry us the rest of
the season.
Despite the inconsistent
play, the Vikings are still
only a game back of first
place Oregon, which lost
to Stoughton earlier this
season, and is still a team
with a high ceiling when it
comes to the section, head
coach Jeremy Dunnihoo
said.

A surprising turnout of

history descended on the
polls here Tuesday to return
the five city officers to their
present position, endorse
nearly four-to-one the
proposed National Guard
armory, school gymnasium and community building, and unseat three of
four aldermen seeking reelection. Only Mayor G.C.
Siggelko had a close race,
receiving 991 votes to 831
for Jiram Nelson, alderman
of the Second Ward, who
also opposed Mayor Siggelko unsuccessfully in 1936.

contains the gymnasium,
the cafeteria and commons
or dining area, the band
and vocal music rooms, the
multi-use auditorium which
can be divided into three
lecture rooms, and adequate
shop areas to provide a wider and more varied vocational program.
The long and sometimes discouraging struggle
of Stoughton area residents to resolve the current junior and senior high
school problem ended in
victory Tuesday, when
electors voted 1,725 to
1,495 to approve bonds for
a new building. Tuesdays
vote was the third attempt
to secure approval of the
necessary bonds. The vote
reflected the growing concern of parents for the critical lack of classroom space
in the junior and senior high
schools.

Police have not made
an arrest in the murder of

as of press time, but the
Town of Dunn womans
estranged husband, Steven
McConnell-Luer, appears
to be their top suspect. Mrs.
McConnell-Luer, 24, the
mother of two, was found
dead in her Bay View
Heights mobile home Sunday, March 25, by a neighbor who told police she
hadnt seen the victim all
day. Authorities later ruled
she died of strangulation.
Steven McConnell-Luer,
30, has been separated from
his wife since October. He
told police he was at a wedding reception the night of
March 24, when his wife
was apparently murdered.

For the second straight


meeting, the Greig Warehouse east of the railroad
tracks commanded the
attention of the Stoughton
City Council Tuesday. Ald.
James Donnelly reiterated
his call for a solution to
chronic parking problems
near the warehouse, at least
until a use for the structure
is found or until a moratorium expires in April 1991.
The old tobacco warehouse,
owned by Stoughton Trailers, was undergoing demolition to make way for a
parking lot last year, but
owner Don Wahlin halted the demolition to give
members of the Downtown
Revitalization Association
a chance to find a re-adaptive use for the structure.
The pictures of his
grandchildren were gone
from the office wall Tuesday afternoon, and Doug

he said. But Im looking

has been fun. Some of the
changes in the city during
his eight years were headline-makers: Page Street

renovation and restoration of the auditorium and

A view of the Stoughton Heritage Center from Page Street. The center will host a grand opening at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 16, during the Syttende Mai weekend celebrations.

Heritage: Many Norwegian immigrants arrived in the Stoughton area between 1825-1910
Continued from page 1
We thought the heritage
center would be appropriate, Gryttenholm said.
Janet and the foundation
have done so much for the
community, but always
very quietly.
When they started, Gryttenholm and Bunting envisioned a facility that would
tell stories of actual families in the Stoughton area.
They focused on the southern third of Dane County
the Koshkonong prairie
where thousands of Norwegians settled in the 19th
and 20th centuries.
Gryttenholm noted the
city of Stoughton was at
one time 90 percent Norwegian. And although Janet
Bryant was of German
ancestry, she chose to live
her life here and, near the
end of it, to stay at Skaalen
Home.
He and Bunting didnt
want the center to compete
with existing businesses or
other educational projects.
Instead, their focus was on
complementing the good
things that are already here
in the city.
Were not about making money, Gryttenholm
stressed. We want to make
sure that the business community understands that.
Were about telling the
Norwegian story the heritage.

Designing an
institution
Gryttenholm and Bunting
began planning the heritage
center in 2011 by researching similar institutions
around Wisconsin and the
Midwest.
They research took them
to the prestigious Vesterheim Norwegian-American
Museum in Decorah, Iowa,
but also to places closer
to home such as the Swiss
Center in New Glarus.
Their first task was to educate themselves.
We spent about a yearand-a-half wrapping our
arms around what other
people were doing, he
said. We looked at a number of facilities in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa to
find out what other groups
are doing and what they
may have wanted to do differently if they could step
back in time.

partner with the Naeseth
Library in Madison.
Partnering with the
library and other Norwegian heritage entities such
as the Sons of Norway
Mandt Lodge will be a
big part of the centers mission in fostering knowledge
and appreciation of that
heritage.

Mission of Livsreise
(Lifs-rye-sa)
lifes jouney:
To create an experience
that allows visitors to
explore Stoughtons
Norwegian identity and
relate it to the culture
that Stoughton and
surrounding area have
long embraced.
He compared that early
research to going to school
to find out what was going
on out there and learn from
their mistakes.
Once they had a good
sense of what they wanted
the heritage center to be,
the pair began thinking
about building design.
Gryttenholm said in looking around, one architectural firm kept popping up
The Kubala Washatko
Architects Inc. in Cedarburg.
The firm was responsible
for reinventing the Madison
Childrens Museum in 2010
and seemed like it would
be a good fit with what the
Bryant Foundation was
looking for.
In his typically quiet,
methodical fashion, Gryttenholm felt the parties
needed to learn about each
other before we could get
into the building design.
We didnt settle on what
we wanted to do with the
first try, he noted. We
went back and forth three
or four times. While we
wanted it to be Norwegian,
we didnt want it to be like
modern Oslo, which has a
lot of glass and steel.
By the same token, he
added, we didnt want it to
look like a log cabin. Architecturally, we wanted it to
fit into the community.
Gryttenholm praised the
architects for putting their
imaginations into the red
building, which features

gabled roofs with steep


lines and a spacious appearance.
That uncluttered, polished look is retained in the
2,200-square-foot exhibition hall. The room leaves
a lasting impression with its
43-foot-high vaulted ceiling
and timber trusses. At the
far end of exhibition hall is
an 800-square-foot special
exhibits room, where temporary exhibits will be on
display.

A lifes journey
Exhibition Hall features
semi-permanent displays
designed to tell individual
stories of Norwegian emigrants.
The bright, airy room is
tastefully arranged with
Norwegian artifacts some
acquired from Little Norway in Mount Horeb after it
went out of business, others
donated by families with an
interest in history and heritage.
Bunting and Gryttenholm
contracted with Zebradog
of Madison, a collaborative
group of high-tech designers, strategists and storytellers to build computerized vignettes and wall art.
There, condensed immigration stories and images
seem to spring to life with
the touch of a screen.
We had the vision,
Gryttenholm said. Their
job was to help us do it.
The hall has four distinct
stations that combine to

accomplish the mission of


Livsreise.
One station, Emigration
Movement, allows visitors to discover the history
behind the emigration that
brought thousands of Norwegians to American at the
turn of the 20th century.
The mixed-media exhibit
examines the social and
economic conditions that
contributed to the mass
emigration.
A second station, Emigrant Storybooks, immerses
guests in the stories of personal journeys compiled
from first-hand accounts,
letters and family interviews.
The Cultural Heritage
station explores the cultural
roots of Norwegian-American heritage, including the
performing arts and traditional customs at interactive
kiosks.
The final station, Map

Your Journey, allows visitors to virtually create a


scenario and travel from
Norway to the U.S. The
station includes images of
Norwegian landscapes and
maps your route across the
Atlantic in a vessel of your
choosing. Many emigrants
to Wisconsin traveled up
the St. Lawrence Seaway to
the Great Lakes and then on
to Milwaukee or Chicago,
from where they traveled
overland to their destinations.
An exhibit called Sacred
Symbols is on display in
the Special Exhibits room.
On loan from the Vesterheim Norwegian-American
Museum, the exhibit features artifacts including
hand-painted trunks, intricately decorated musical
instruments such as a hardanger fiddle, tools and linens.
The centers small

Gryttenholm said theres


more work to accomplish at
the heritage center.
In what he calls the second phase of the project,
well start on the future
because as people come
and see the stories through
the technology, we want to
have fresh stories available
in the permanent exhibit
area and also start working on what were going to
have for the extemporary
exhibit.
Theres no timeline for
the secondary exhibit, and
it will be a learning experience, but were going to
start working on it right
away, he said.
He sees that has his longterm role at the center.
I wont be there working with the employees on
a day-to-day basis with
people coming through,he
said. My place will be to
make sure that the exhibits or the genealogy or the
auditorium with the media
player with the videos and
all that Ill continue to
work on all of that.
His hope is that the
heritage center will help
Stoughton to become a destination for visitors instead
of a place they simply pass
through on their way to
Madison.
He said Stoughtons businesses can help accomplish
that goal, as well.
I hope the downtown
business community realizes that they have a part to
play in this, too, Gryttenholm said. Part of our success will come from them
stepping up and doing more
themselves.
Thats what weve done
here. Weve stepped up to
the plate in terms of helping the community become
more of a destination place.
But were not the answer
the community itself is the
answer.
