After Herbert V. Kohler, Jr. observed the
creation of chocolates in a nearby commu-
nity, it sparked his recollection that taste
seldom matches anticipation. He decided
that the world needed a better Turtle. He
discussed the idea with Ulrich Koberstein,
Director of Culinary Arts at the American
Club and together they set out to create the
best in the world. After experimenting with
hundreds of flavor combinations, most of
which were tasted by both Mr. Kohler and
his director, KOHLER Original Recipe
Chocolates was launched in 2004 with a
batch of chocolate turtles. The word
Turtles was later changed to Terrapins,
(a species of the turtle family), after it was
discovered Turtles was a Nestl trademark.
When demand for KOHLER Original
Recipe Chocolates began to outpace sup-
ply, Chef Koberstein and his staff saw the
perfect opportunity to expand their work
environment beyond their cozy, dark work-
place in the lower level of the American
Club to one of the vacant storefronts locat-
ed in The Shops at Woodlake. The shop was
transformed into a dazzling chocolate spe-
cialty shop/caf with glass cases, chande-
liers, mirrors, and an open kitchen, and
Kohlers newest innovation, the Craverie,
opened its doors to the public on November
16.
Located between Cucina and Silk Road,
the Craverie also offers banquette seating
as well as a deep seating room located in
the back that is reminiscent of The
American Club, with comfortable, over-
stuffed leather chairs, a warm fireplace,
bookcase, and a view of Wood Lake.
Besides an impressive variety of unique
chocolates, from Asian Spice to Earl Grey
Tea Truffles, and Cherry Almond chocolate
bars, the Craverie also offers a menu that
promises a new concept in the presentation
of food. The menu is divided between an
INDULGENCE listing on the left half of
the menu with an assortment of exotic pas-
tries, sandwiches, churned gelatos and other
exquisite desserts, and a LEAN listing on
the right half with breakfast items, kettle
soups, salads, savories, sorbet and desserts
that are big on taste and texture, but light on
calories and sodium. Each generous portion
contains less than 200 calories and 150 mg
of sodium per serving. The numbers are
presented for each menu item, for example,
the Mushroom Chicken Quiche served
warm or cold with balsamic and mixed
greens is listed as having only 46 calories
and 29 milligrams of salt. Also available is
a delightful selection of beverages, includ-
ing signature coffees, hot chocolates and
some of the best wine and beer.
At the Craverie ribbon cutting on the
evening of November 15, Herbert Kohler
explained that his own dietary changes
were the inspiration for the lean half of the
menu. This caf is really a new idea in the
presentation of food, Kohler said.
Depending on where you are in life, if you
are really fitness-focused, if you are reluc-
tantly aging, like me, Im going to the lean
side. But if youre young and vigorous and
can burn the calories, that left side is mar-
velous.
The Craverie will be open from 7 am to
7 p.m. seven days a week.
Katie Schaub, a third-generation
baker, recently rejoined Kohler Co. to
support KOHLER Original Recipe
Chocolates in new product development,
chocolate innovation and production.
While Katies specialty is baking, she is
dedicated to the creation of new and
interesting chocolate concepts to help
build the KOHLER Original Recipe
Chocolates business.
During her studies at The Culinary
Institute of America (CIA) in New York,
Katie was invited to assist with the writ-
ing of a technical manual for chocolate
production: Chocolates and Confections:
Formula, Theory and Technique for the
Artisan Confectioner by Peter
Greweling, CIA. This experience
exposed Katie to a wealth of chocolate
production knowledge, which she uses to
develop unique and new concepts in
chocolate.
In 2006, Katie was a member of the
CIAs Culinary Culture Exchange dele-
gation to Tokyo, Japan. During this
exclusive experience, Katie was honored
to work with Japanese kitchen staff at the
U.S. Atsugi Navy base. She prepared
baking and pastry menus, desserts and
breads for buffets, and a gala dinner, as
well as a dessert demonstration for mili-

Katie began her culinary career as a
line cook at Antoinettes in Plymouth,
Wisconsin, before joining the bakery at
The American Club for an Externship.
Katie also honed her chocolate talents
as a baker and barista at Taste Budds
Coffee and Chocolate Caf in Red Hook,
New York and at Whole Foods Market in
Columbus, Ohio, as a Bakery Supervisor

Kohler Schools mill
rate higher, Village
of Kohler property
loses value
The mill rate for the 2007-08 school year
was set by the Board of Education at the
Annual Meeting held in October. The mill
rate was set using the State of Wisconsin
revenue cap formula. This years mill rate
is 10.16 up seven-tenths of a mill from
the previous year.
The District continues to grow. The total
number of students enrolled at Kohler
Schools this year is 612. Since the 2004-05
school year, the school has seen a 20 per-
cent increase in students who are residents
of the Village, and an 11 percent increase in
Open Enrollment students. Open enroll-
ment students continue to be 15 percent of
the total student population, which brings
in over $550,000 for District operations.
Individual tax bills may vary due to the
growth or decline of property value in each
municipality located within the District.
For example, the Village of Kohlers worth
decreased 0.3 percent this year while the
property in the Town of Wilson that is locat-
ed within the School District boundaries
grew at 7.9 percent. See the second chart
below for Municipality Equalized Value
comparisons.
The District received over $150,000 of
extra state aid this year than what was pro-
jected due to the late biennium budget by
the State of Wisconsin. School
Superintendent Jeff Dickert reported at the
Annual Meeting of the District that state aid
had been decreasing 15 percent annually
since 2003. He noted that this change due to
the lateness of the budget process will net
the taxpayers of Kohler Schools over
$800,000 in tax relief over the next decade.
Kohler was one of the few Districts affect-
ed positively by the late budget process
according to Dickert.
The first graph below shows the contin-
ued downward trend of the Districts mill
rate over the last 20 years.

Jan Gebhart receiving a retirement gift at the library board meeting from jen Vallo, (left)
library board president and Erin Coopersmith, who will be the new librarian.
Kohler Public Library Director Jan
Gebhart retired last month after 13 years as
the Librarys director. She and her husband
are looking forward to traveling and spend-
ing more time with their children and their
hobbies. She said the kind support and
friendship from everyone meant so much to
her throughout the years. She will continue
to stay active with the library through scrap
booking and special programs.
Erin Coppersmith was appointed to the
position of Library Director at the
November meeting of the Kohler Library
Board. She was born and raised in the
Plymouth area. Right out of high school she
joined the Army National Guard and served
for nine years in the West Bend Air Medical
Unit. She has been married for 10 years and
she and her husband have three children.
Shes been at the Kohler Public Library for
nine years. Erin said shes lucky enough to
have a job that she loves and plans to be at
Kohler Public Library for the rest of her
career. She said that while there are certain-
ly challenges working inside of a K-12/pub-
lic library, she thinks it makes the job much
more interesting. Her plans for the future
are to continue to improve the Librarys
presence in the Kohler community and
expand its involvement in system-wide
projects.

Sheboygan, November 20, 2007 -
Kohler Foundation, Inc. has awarded
Kohler Public Schools a grant in the
amount of $3,375, providing significant
relief for some of the music departments
current needs. Aproposal was submitted to
the Foundation in September requesting
assistance in the purchase of a digital
piano, percussion equipment, and record-
ing and video equipment. In October, the
Foundations Grants Committee met and
designated the substantial gift to the
school.
Rich Tengowski, Director of Bands at
Kohler Public Schools, said of the award,
The timing of this grant could not have
been any better. The funds will help pur-
chase a new digital camcorder and will
replace the old analog recorder. This equip-
ment will provide us with the opportunity
to record student rehearsals and perform-
ances. The new camcorder will allow
vocal students to better assess themselves,
as well as to document various music per-
formances.
Also included in the proposal was a
request for funding for a digital piano and
percussion equipment. We will also be
purchasing a new keyboard for the music
department, as well as some new drum
equipment for our new Blue Bomber Drum
Line. These new instruments will allow us
to provide more performing opportunities

The Art of Kohler Cooking cook-
books are available once again for pur-
chase. Cookbooks may be purchased at the

for our students, said Tengowski. One of the
benefits of the keyboard will be its portabili-
ty, which will allow it to be transported to dif-
ferent locations throughout the school. In
addition, the music department will now be
able to acquire its own concert toms, elimi-
nating the need for the school to borrow this
equipment from other institutions during per-
formances.
Tengowski was appreciative of the
response from Kohler Foundation. We are
very grateful to receive this grant, he said.
The Kohler Schools music department has
created a state of the art comprehensive and
sequential curriculum that is regarded by
many as one of the finest in Wisconsin, sur-
passing state and national standards in music
and providing opportunities for nearly 600
students to study and perform music of the
highest quality.

Atrium Tea Room Now
Open in Richardsons
Furniture Emporium
As more and more people are making
healthier beverage choices today, yet still
require high standards in taste and variety,
the tea industry, and mainly specialty tea
rooms, are booming to meet those demands.
Enter the Atrium Tea Room located within
Richardsons Furniture Emporium. The
space that connects two 100 year-old build-
ings, the Atrium Tea Room is a one of a
kind destination designed so customers can
enjoy conversation with friends at the ever
evolving table assortments, or sit by one of
the soothing fountains and take some pri-
vate time.
The Atrium Tea Room offers premium
loose leaf teas from Teavana, Octavia,
Rishi, and Mighty Leaf. Offered are white,
green, oolong, and black teas, as well as
mates, rooibos (red), herbal infusions, and
pu-erh. Each pot of tea is brewed by one of
the trained tea artisans who use precise
steeping techniques, coordinating correct
water temperatures and steeping times in
order to avoid burning the tea, which results
in the perfect pot every time.
To enhance the tea experience, the
Atrium Tea Room offers a small tea lunch-
eon menu. A variety of tea plates including
cheese, quiche, soup and salad are offered.
In addition to the luncheon fare, desserts,
including a Sweet of the Day, Heavenly Tea
Infused Brownies, and one of Oprahs
favorite picks, Rum Fairy Cakes, are avail-
able. Muffins, scones, and Biscot-Tea short-
bread are other additions.
Since 1989, tea rooms in the United
States have grown from 300 to over 700. As
tea has become the second most popular
beverage across the world, tea rooms con-
tinue to grow on a daily basis. From reduc-
ing heart attacks by 44 percent, to aiding in
weight loss and burning fat, to lowering the
risk of cancer, the benefits of tea are many.

Rediscover a healthy, youthful glow
for the Holidays
Diamonds became my skins best friend at Quintessa Medical Spa
By Mary Struck, Publisher/Editor
This is the first in a two-part series about
cosmetic surgery services offered in
Sheboygan. The January issue will cover
the more invasive procedures.
When I noticed my complexion starting
to become dull, blotchy, and rough textured,
I tried over-the-counter Alpha-Hydroxy
Acid treatments, but they seemed to cause
even more redness and bumpiness. Plus, it
can take weeks before seeing noticeable
improvement and I found myself losing
interest in maintaining the daily regimen. I
considered microdermabrasion but was a bit
apprehensive about the abrasion part. I
envisioned the practitioner coming at my
face with a slightly smaller version of a
Craftsman belt sander. After doing some
online research, I learned that the technique
is actually done using a small wand that
gently abrades the skin surface using micro-
crystals and air suction.
I visited the website of Quintessa
Medical Spa in Sheboygan and found they
use a new crystal free system called the
DiamondTome System, which actually
has diamonds imbedded in the wand. Its
regarded as a gentler resurfacing system
that provides more dramatic results as it
gently exfoliates the skin with natural dia-
mond chips, while at the same time vacu-
uming the dead skin cells away in a sterile
and controlled manner. The degree of effec-
tiveness can be controlled by varying the
coarseness of the DiamondTome wand.
While treatment series vary from four to ten
sessions depending on the condition being
treated and type of skin, the literature prom-
ises that patients experience softer,
smoother, and cleaner skin after the first
treatment. I decided to give the procedure a
try while also learning more about the rap-
idly growing medical spa industry.
Not too many years ago, facial surgical
procedures were associated with famous
celebrities who did all they could to conceal
the fact that any work had been done on
them. Gossip tabloids paid big money to
answer the biggest question in Hollywood:
Did she or didnt she? Famous male
actors using pseudonyms descreetly
checked into hospitals for cosmetic surgery
under the guise of needing common med-
ical procedures like cyst removal. But the
popularity of plastic surgery reality shows
on television has mainstreamed the notion
of cosmetic surgery in the past few years.
Nearly 11 million cosmetic plastic surgery
procedures were performed in the United
States in 2006, up 7 percent from 2005,
according to the American Society of
Plastic Surgeons. Males accounted for 1.1
million of those procedures.
Surgical advances and baby boomers
under pressure to stay competitive in their
careers have fueled demand for minimally
invasive procedures that require little or no
downtime. This phenomenon has con-
tributed to a boom in medical spas that
blend the creature comforts of a day spa
with elective cosmetic procedures that, until
recently, were performed almost exclusive-
ly in a plastic surgeons clinic or a dermatol-
ogists office. A medical spa is a facility
where the medical program is run under the
strict supervision of a licensed healthcare
professional, according to the International
Medical Spa Association. Services in these
facilities go beyond those of traditional day
spas in that medical spas offer medical-
grade skin care products and treatments,
administered by highly trained specialists
under the supervision of medical profes-
sionals.
Quintessa Medical Spa, located in the
Paragon Medical Center at 1411 North
Taylor Drive, was opened in 2006 in con-
junction with the services offered by plastic
surgeon Dr. Andrew Campbell, M.D. and
his staff at Campbell Facial Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Campbell and his wife, Heidi, an R.N.
and director of Quintessa, envisioned creat-
ing a total facial rejuvenation center that
would be a premier destination between
Milwaukee and Green Bay. Dr. Campbell is
already widely known for his facial plastic
surgical skill and takes referrals from all
over the state, particularly for complex
rhinoplasty cases. Combining surgical and
nonsurgical facial care in one tranquil, wel-
coming facility gives patients the best pos-
sible experience and allows for a more cus-
tomized treatment plan. Dr. Campbell
shares the Paragon Surgical Center facility
with Dermatologist Aloys L. Tauscheck.
I met with Hiedi Campbell, who
explained that as we age we lose the ability
to turn over dead skin cells. Up to the age of
14, the skin on the face exfoliates naturally
every 14 days. By the age of 25 and beyond
the skin will exfoliate every 28 days or so.
As the dead skin cells build up on the sur-
face of the skin, our complexions become
dull, wrinkles may appear deeper, drier, and
more recessed, and the thickening layer of
dead cells have the potential to act as a bar-
rier to absorption of nutrients from creams
and lotions. This dead cell layer may also
trap dirt, oil, and make-up, and block sweat
glands, which can result in acne. Sun dam-
age, pollutants, irritants, acne, and the grad-
ual loss of collagen with age also con-
tributes to skin conditions associated with
looking older.
Microdermabrasion works by gently
abrading the epidermis layer of the skin to
remove unwanted dead surface cells. Not
only does the process polish the skin, but the
body interprets it as a mild injury and rushes
to bring forward plump, fresh, healthy new
cells in conjunction with collagen & elastin
tissue, leading to a more youthful, even skin
tone. Repeat treatments actually force your
skin to get stronger and firmer as it reacts to
protect itself from the process by building
more collagen and elastin.
Microdermabrasion resurfacing is a great
alternative to laser or chemical peels because
its non-invasive, non-surgical, and requires
no downtime after treatment. Normal activi-
ties may be resumed immediately. Thats why
the procedure is commonly called the lunch-
time peel.
The DiamondTome System microder-
mabrasion treatment at Quintessa Medical
Spa is recommended for sun damaged skin
on face, neck, and shoulders; age spots on
hands and face; reduction of minor to mod-
erate early aging fine lines on eyes and fore-
head; reduction of acne scarring; extraction
of blackheads and whiteheads; minor scar
revision; hyperpigmentation reduction; oily
skin; and rejuvenation of skin health.
Renee Meyer, the medical aesthetician
who performs the microdermabrasion treat-
ment, led me to a comfortable hospital type
bed where I was asked to lie down. To my
surprise there was no gown, mask, or protec-
tive glasses to put on, just a cloth that Renee
wrapped around my hairline to protect the
hair. She then smoothed a facial cream onto
my face while explaining the procedure. The
microdermabrasion procedure is commonly
described as similar to the feeling of a cats
tongue on your skin. I mostly felt the suction
from the vacuum, but I experienced no pain
or discomfort whatsoever.
After the procedure, which took about 15
minutes, Renee applied the Oxy-Mist treat-
ment, which promises to breathe new life
into your skin. Delivered with 100 percent
medical grade oxygen, the treatment infuses
over 100 beneficial ingredients deep into the
skin, including amino acids, minerals, and
vitamins to replenish the skin and make it
hydrated, smooth, and radiant. The Oxy-Mist
treatment has been proven to help skin heal in
half the time after cosmetic surgery and deep
resurfacing procedures such as laser resurfac-
ing and chemical peels. Quintessa also pro-
vides Oxy-Mist home care kits for patients
who have more invasive procedures done.
As I looked in the mirror, I immediately
noticed my skin looked and felt smoother and
more vibrant. There was a slight flushed
look, but that returns to normal after about
10-30 minutes and makeup can be applied to
cover the redness. For the next two days, my
skin was slightly red and mildly irritated,
similar to a mild sunburn or windburn.
Moisturizing cream and tinted facial powder
was all I needed to sooth the skin and tone
down the redness. On days 3 and 4, I could
feel a rough texture, similar to chafing,
caused by the sloughing of the dead skin
layer. But unlike peeling after sunburn, this
peeling was barely visible to the naked eye.
Im assuming this was due the micro part
of microdermabrasion. I continued with a
moisturizer twice a day to alleviate the dry-
ness. By day five, the peeling was done and
I noticed my complexion was soft, more
firm, and the blotchy redness and some mild
acne scarring were eliminated. Being a per-
son who doesnt like to wear makeup, or as
little as possible if I do, I can now return to
the light applications I was accustomed to
before my complexion became blotchy and
required heavier applications.
Heidi said the medical spa procedures
focus on quality results with no downtime
in a beautiful, soothing environment. All
procedures are performed by licensed med-
ical professionals, under the direct supervi-
sion of Dr. Campbell. Besides microder-
mabrasion, there are many options available
at Quintessa to treat the effects of aging that
are non-surgical, medical-grade treatments,
such as laser hair removal and vein
removal; BOTOX Cosmetic; wrinkle
fillers such as Radiesse and Restylane;
and permanent makeup. Complimentary
consultations are provided, and Dr.
Campbell and his staff will customize a skin
care plan to restore a healthy appearance
and reduce the effects of aging.
Following my treatment, Heidi and
Renee went over some of the medical-grade
skin care treatments offered at Quintessa.
Medical-grade products are superior in
quality and more concentrated than over-
the-counter products. They told me that
Microdermabrasion actually helps these
products work more effectively because the
removal of the dead skin cell layer that may
act as a barrior allows the products to
absorb into the deeper layers of skin where
they work.
According to Heidi, many clients come
from Milwaukee and other parts of the state
and even Chicago, through word of mouth
and Internet research. A Quintessa Club
with discounts and a refer-a-friend program
is available, as well as gift cards for a
unique gift of rejuvenation for the holidays
and new year.

The mood at the first annual Fall Follies
was a festive one as more than 270 guests
gathered in the new gymnasium at Kohler
Public Schools for an evening of good
company, delicious food, and lively enter-
tainment hosted by the Kohler School
Foundation.
Over 100 volunteers came together to
make the evening a fun and memorable one.
The Blue Bomber Drum Line, Jeff
Armstrong of Sound Art Production, and
the Bomber Polka Band are just a few of the
acts that kept guests amused throughout the
evening. The event also featured live and
silent auctions, with over 150 impressive
offerings as diverse as vacation packages to
Chicago, Orlando, and Telluride, Colorado,
to Wisconsin Badger football tickets to a
handmade quilt created by the schools first
grade class.
The Kohler School Foundation would
like to thank all those who attended and par-
ticipated in Fall Follies, making the inaugu-
ral event an overwhelming success that
engaged the entire Kohler community and
generated over $35,000 that will ultimately
go right back to the school. Students and
faculty are the direct beneficiaries of Fall
Follies, as all monies raised work to enrich
both the learning and teaching experiences.
The Kohler School Foundation exists to
take the Kohler School experience beyond
the basics of public education. The
Foundation was established in 1997 and
strives to ease the tax burden on Village res-
idents by providing much needed assistance
to Kohler Public Schools aside from the
restricted and often challenged public fund-
ing.

Sheboygan As
seek skipper for
2008 Season
The Sheboygan As are asking persons
interested in managing the semi-pro base-
ball club next summer to send in resumes
after learning this week that Brian
Bengtson is unable to return to the post.
Bengtson, who led the As to a 29-27
season in a rugged Wisconsin State and
Northeastern Wisconsin League schedule,
is one of only 750 players from across the
nation invited to a combine that will stock
the rosters of a new professional softball
league. He feels his status is too uncertain
to make the commitment to the As.
Persons interested in the position should
send their resume to Sheboygan Athletic
Club, P. O. Box 32, Sheboygan, WI 53082-
0032.
A reception was held at Woodlake
Market November 8 in honor of Martha
Hill, who is one of only 12 Special
Olympics athletes from around the world
(one of three from the USA) to serve as a
Global Messenger for the 2007 World
Games.
Every two years, 12 athletes are selected
from 300 Special Olympics athletes from
60 Special Olympics Programs around the
world to train through the Sargent Shriver
International Global Messenger program
and serve as primary spokespeople on
behalf of Special Olympics. While main-
taining their regular sports training and
competition schedules, Global Messengers
serve a two-year term and address audi-
ences of government officials, business
executives, and the general public. They
make appearances in national and interna-
tional media outlets and deliver addresses
before large audiences. Martha, 28, of
Sheboygan, is an accomplished athlete in
Aquatics, Basketball, and Bocce and has
been active in Special Olympics for 12
years. She has spent the past seven as a
Special Olympics Wisconsin Global
Messenger. She recently attended the
Special Olympics World Games in
Shanghai, China on October 2, where 7,500
athletes from 160 countries competed
before an audience of 80,000 at Chinas
Shanghai Stadium.
Martha, who is cognitively disabled,
cites Special Olympics founder Eunice
Kennedy Shriver as her personal hero and
said she wants to lead a parade of athletes
to change the way people feel about indi-
viduals with intellectual disability. While
in China, Martha had the opportunity to
speak to an audience that included Kennedy
Shriver, as well as such notables as NBA
star Yao Ming, actress Vanessa Williams,
actor Colin Farrell, and numerous world
leaders.
Woodlake Market associate
honored for roll in Special Olympics
Global Messengers are evaluated on their
history of advocacy, public speaking apti-
tude, sportsmanship, personality, willing-
ness to travel, and enthusiasm for the
Special Olympics movement. Martha has
participated in an Athlete Leadership
Conference, taken sign language courses to
better communicate with deaf customers at
her place of employment, conducted inter-
views used in Special Olympics Wisconsin
newsletters, and participated in a selective
team-building exercise for Kohler Co.
Intellectual disability is NOT who we
are, its just something we have, like blond
hair and a pretty smile. We are different in
some ways, but the things that make us dif-
ferent have little meaning compared to all
the things that are just the same as you.
Andheres a little secret, being different
is NOT a bad thing. Martha Hill, Global
Policy Summit speech.
Martha Hill, Global Messenger for Special Olympics
Thirty kids from Kohler competed on 12

Summary
The Committee Members of the Kohler School
Friends Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair would like to
thank all of you who participated in this year's
event. Without the support of the community,
school staff, and volunteers this show would not
be possible. This year we were able to raise
$22,500 to aid in the enhancement of the curricu-
lum of Kohler Schools. Here are several exam-
ples of how some of these funds are spent:
Kohler School Friends spends over $5,000.00
annually on busses for field trips, elementary
through high school students, provides over
$5,000 in curriculum enhancement materials for
classroom use each year, and spends approxi-
mately $3500 per year on outside programs
brought in to the school. In addition we provide
staff appreciation week & luncheons, a directory
to each family in the district, allocate an annual
scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing a
career working with children, and much more.
You can see why this is such a great event for
the school-thanks to all of you who helped to
make it that way! Thanks for another big year-

C&I Committee Reviews
UW-Madison Admission
The Curriculum and Instruction Committee of the Board
of Education reviewed at their last meeting a concern
regarding Grade Point Average (GPA) and acceptance into
UW-Madison. This concern was brought up during the
Committee's listening session last spring. The feeling
among several parents was that Kohler High's lack of
weighted grading was giving an entrance advantage to stu-
dents from schools using a 5.0 weighted grading system
when entering UW-Madison.
Superintendent Dickert reported that he spoke with Mr.
Rob Selzer, Director of Admissions at UW-Madison. The
top indicators for Madison are ACT, GPA, and rigor of
course work. The University uses a chart of admissions that
compares the applicants ACT score and their GPA. This
creates the first cut line. The University takes all GPAs and
figures them to a 4.0 system giving an "A" a 4.0, an "A-" a
3.7, a "B+" a 3.3, and a "B" a 3.0, and so on when recalcu-
lating the GPA. No weighted grades are considered in the
GPA. Everyone is on an even playing field. The admissions
department then looks at rigor of courses in honors or AP
courses taken by the student that are available at your
school. The same admissions associate reads the applica-
tions from the same geographical area each year. They get
to know the various schools in their regions.
The C&I Committee has directed administration to fur-
ther research private college entrance criteria to make sure
our students are not penalized in that arena by the current
4.0 system and also the current practice of not using
weighted grades at Kohler High School.

As we begin another year, it is once again time to review the
procedures for school closings due to inclement weather.
As in the past, we ask parents to discuss this issue with their
children NOW before the actual emergency occurs. If you are
generally not home during the day, be sure your child knows
NOWwhere they are to go if school closed early (Will they go
home with a classmate? Older sibling? A relative? Have you
made prior arrangements with this individual to be on "stand
by" for these occasions?) In emergency closing situations, forty
or fifty children wanting to call home/work to find out where to
go seriously delays the entire closing process. Please make sure
your arrangements are made in advance and be sure your child
is fully aware of what to do.
Any decision to close schools for all or any portion of a
school day will be made as early as possible in order to afford
parents the opportunity to make alternate child care transporta-
tion plans. All closing announcements or early dismissals will
be made on the following area radio stations:

Win prizes by showing your spirit
The Kohler High School Cheerleaders are having a spirit competition. There is no
form to fill out; all you have to do to win is get involved.
Come to the basketball games and follow your team. We are looking for our most
spirited fans. Wear your school colors, cheer at the games, show us how much you love
your team.
You do not have to know a basketball team member or have a student at Kohler High
School. We want to fill the stands and show the young people of our community that
what they do in life matters. Help us support our team and school. Get involved.
We went to local businesses, asked for donations, and had a huge response. There are
gift certificates for restaurants, hair salons, tanning, and manicures. We have jewelry,
workout and sports equipment, as well as gift baskets, gift cards and much, much more.
We said it before and well say it again, get involved! Show us your spirit!
See you at the games.

Kohler High receives $500 grant
from ExxonMobil Educational
Alliance program
Kohler High School has received a $500 grant from the ExxonMobil Educational
Alliance program to support the schools math program. Both Connie Schmidt and
Jerry Fenn of Kohler Q-Mart worked with Lance Northey, Principal at Kohler Schools,
to secure the grant, which is one of 4,000 available to schools across the country
served by ExxonMobil stations. The grants were made possible by funding from the
ExxonMobil Corporation.
Kohler High School works hard to make learning interesting and fun, said Jerry
Fenn, manager. As an ExxonMobil retailer, I am proud to help young people in the
Village of Kohler.
The ExxonMobil Educational Alliance program is designed to provide ExxonMobil
retailers with an opportunity to invest in the future of their communities through edu-
cational grants to neighborhood schools. ExxonMobil believes that as members of the
community local retailers are best qualified to work with local educators to help identi-
fy schools and programs most in need of support.
Kohler Q-MART and Jerry Fenn met stringent eligibility criteria before applying for
and being awarded this grant, including having a commitment to provide a superior
buying experience for customers.

ANNOUNCEMENT:
NEWLIBRARY DIRECTOR!!!
Jan Gebhart has made the difficult but excit-
ing decision to retire last month. She and
her husband are looking forward to travel-
ing and spending more time with their chil-
dren and their hobbies. She wishes to thank
everyone for their kind support and friend-
shipit has meant so much to her through-
out the years. She will continue to stay
active with the library through scrap book-
ing and special programs.
I was appointed to the position of Library
Director at the November meeting of the
Kohler Library Board. I was born and raised
in the Plymouth area. Right out of high
school I joined the Army National Guard
and served for nine years in the West Bend
Air Medical Unit. I have been married for
10 years. My husband and I have three
children. Ive been at the Kohler Public
Library for nine years. Im lucky enough to
have a job that I love and plan to be here for
the rest of my career. While there are cer-
tainly challenges working inside of a K-
12/public library, I think that it makes the
job much more interesting. My plans for
the future are to continue to improve our
presence in the Kohler community and
expand our involvement in system-wide
projects. I look forward to many more years
of working with all of you.
Thank you,
Erin Coppersmith

Hi, my name is Lara. I was caught in a trap as a stray. It was very frightening but then I was brought to the
humane society where I got food, vet care and a warm, cozy bed. The people who take care of me here say my
greatest asset is that I love people. Love, loyalty and a home for the holidays...that's my wish.

lage on Halloween night. The glow neck-
laces went fast and many good comments
were received from the residents about this
program. The police department wants
Halloween to be a fun and safe activity for
the families of the Village of Kohler and this
helped that cause. We will be handing out
the glow necklaces again next year. I also
heard comments about it being very light
out this year. Due to the later Day Light
Savings Time, we may look into moving the
time back some, possibly a half-hour.
Driving Conditions
Now that winter is back upon us, we all
have to remember to drive more carefully.
Even though some vehicles seem to handle
better in the snowy conditions, remember to
give yourself more distance between vehi-
cles when stopping. Big SUVs can get going
faster with 4-wheel drive, but have the same
problems stopping on slick roads. Snow
banks can reduce visibility, so be aware of
pedestrians. If a vehicle is parked outside,
remember to clear the windows. Proper visi-
bility is extremely important, especially with
children crossing the streets early in the
morning. Also, remember that getting ready
in the winter takes more time, so to avoid
having to rush, plan ahead.
Snow is on the Way
The Village of Kohler doesnt have winter
parking regulations like many other commu-
nities with parking on the even or odd side
of the street throughout the winter months.
That is typically done so if it snows the
communities can completely clear the
streets after the snowstorms over two days.
Instead, we just rely on residents moving
their vehicles promptly after snowstorms.
Also, just a reminder that it is illegal to
blow snow into the Village streets. Helping
out in these areas makes our streets cleaner
and safer during the winter season.
FROM PUBLIC WORKS SUPERIN-
TENDENT BRUCE NEERHOF
Snow Emergency
To find out if a snow emergency is in effect
for the Village, call 459-3881 anytime, or
watch Kohler Cable Channel 20. There is no
parking on village streets during a snow
emergency. A snow emergency is called
when accumulation is expected to exceed
six inches. Snow emergencies are typically
called from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm to give
the snowplows an opportunity to clear the
streets with no cars in the way.
Salt
Village residents are welcome to obtain salt
from the containers located at Valley Road
and Upper Road; Church Street and School
Street; and Lower Road and West Riverside
Drive.
Snow Removal
Winter is here. Here are some reminders
on Village snow removal ordinances and
policies.
1. Please remember to shovel your side-
walks within 24 hours after a snowfall
event.
2. Do not blow or shovel snow back into
the street.
3. Please remove vehicles from the street
when the plows are in operation.
Snow Removal Around Kiosks
It is the residents responsibility to have the
snow removed around the kiosks/NDCBU
(neighborhood delivery and collection box
unit)/cluster boxes. The Postal Service will
