SABA works to promote Stockbridge businesses By Faye Burg Founded in 2002, the Stockbridge Area Business Association (SABA) strives to get the word out on the many businesses and events happening in and around the Stockbridge area. The close knit community of Stockbridge is located just off the east shore of Lake Winnebago with many well established businesses and new businesses for residents and visitors alike. Long time manufacturing companies Stockbridge Engineering and Stockbridge Manufacturing form the backbone of the area companies along with numerous construction companies that are part of SABA and have anchored in the Stockbridge community for decades. J & E Construction Company, Inc., Karls Mechanical contractors, Luchterhand Builders, Mike’s Electric, Parsons Bros.

Official’s Den puts focus on youths By Mark Sherry If it is true that children are the future, then the future looks very bright at Official’s Den Bowl & Spirits in Hilbert. Owners Jim and JoAnn Schmidt have fostered an atmosphere at Official’s Den which puts a lot of emphasis on youth bowlers while still taking very good care of their adult customers. Jim said youth bowling increased 20 percent in the past year while open bowling rose about 40 percent, with youths once again being a big part of that latter percentage. Those increases have not come by accident but through investments of time and money by the Schmidt family and their employees. “You can’t be afraid to work,” Jim said one recent morning as he was interviewed while at the same time changing out the deep fryer oil in preparation for food service later that day. Hilbert area supportive Jim also was quick to commend the Hilbert area which they have come to know over the last couple years of owning the business. “It’s a great community to be in,” he said. “We appreciate the support the community gives to us. We do more fundraisers every year.” Jim said he has long had a passion for introducing youths to bowling and brought that with him to Hilbert when the couple purchased Official’s Den. This past year was his second coaching middle school teams from Hilbert, and it was a very memorable season. The girls team took first place and the boys were

co-champions, with both teams advancing to the State Tournament. He said the teams had success despite competing against youth bowlers from larger cities such as Appleton, Oshkosh, and Neenah. “I’m very proud of them,” Jim said. He said he and his assistant coaches take a somewhat different approach with their young bowlers. If some of the youths just want to come out to have fun bowling and not be concerned with improving their skills or being competitive, the coaches are fine with that. But Jim said an interesting thing sometimes happens along the way. The youths see their classmates improving and having success in competitions and some of them decide to take a stronger interest in the sport. Offering free open bowling to team members is another perk for participating. Youth bowling at Official’s Den in Hilbert also provides a way for youngsters to start building scholarship funds for college. Official’s Den takes part in the Grand Prix Scholarship Program. Youths are asked to work at events held at the business throughout the year, with a percentage of profits from those events going back into the program. Jim said the average scholarship designated per youth this year was $1,000, and youths who start young and take part every year can have a nice start on funding college by the time they reach that age. Employing local youths The Official’s Den also benefits Hilbert area youths by providing a place

The pizza, wings, and tator tots buffet on Thursdays continues to be popular, and Fridays features all-you-can-eat white fish. An addition to the menu in the past year is sub sandwiches, and on Mondays diners can get $1 off those eight-inch subs. The subs are made to order using bread baked in Appleton and brought to Official’s Den. People also are being drawn to Official’s Den because the Schmidt family continues to make other upgrades to the facility. In the past year a new bowling scoring system was installed, along with a system in which bumpers on all lanes go up and down automatically once they are programmed into the system. In other words, parents can be bowling with their two young children on the same lane and the bumpers will be in place when the kids bowl but not when the parents bowl if they do not want them.

continued from page 3

The seating area in the lanes also was refinished, including taking away the step up to the lanes. Jim said he should be able to find time yet this year to remodel an existing room into a pro shop in which bowling balls will be sold and drilled and shoes and other bowling equipment will be sold. Horseshoe and volleyball leagues are full at Official’s Den, Jim said, as people continue to use the outdoor features—including a deck—which they have worked to improve since owning the business. On Tuesdays in the wintertime, Official’s Den offers an indoor bean bag league with participants tossing the bags down the lanes and youths retrieving them. From Hilbert to Brillion to Stockbridge and many points in between, people of all ages are making Official’s Den in Hilbert their destination of choice for bowling, food, and fun.

New owners now piloting Harbor Bar By Mark Sherry Kimberly Halbach is maintaining a pretty strong annual average of buying into ownership of hospitality businesses in northeast Wisconsin, but she said she does not plan to keep that average up. “I’m averaging about one a year,” Halbach said with a smile recently while multitasking at her newest acquisition— Harbor Bar & Grill in Stockbridge. Halbach became part owner of the establishment located on the shores of Lake Winnebago on Jan. 16 of this year, teaming with Curt Semph—owner of the popular Chester’s drive-in in Plymouth—and Steve Van Fossen of Appleton. They have worked together in the past to purchase and operate two Menasha establishments, one in 2015 and another in 2017. “I’ve always wanted to own my own place,” Halbach said, but she can add an “s” on the end of “place.” New Holstein native She gained a little bit of bartending experience while working at an establishment in New Holstein, which is where she graduated high school from in 2000. Her strong work ethic, meanwhile, was learned from parents Dan and Karen. Kimberly went on to earn her master’s degree in business and managed an ear, nose, and throat clinic in Appleton for 10 years. She said she eventually tired of the office setting and decided to move into the hospitality ownership business. As for her third acquisition of Harbor Bar & Grill, Halbach said, “This kind of came up, and there’s only so many locations on the water.” Now she is spending at least 40 hours per week as a hands-on owner at Harbor Bar—making and delivering drinks, sending food orders to the kitchen, processing payments from customers, working with vendors, managing the books, and doing whatever else needs to be done to make the business successful. That includes already making some needed improvements at Harbor Bar & Grill and using her business background to start planning the next steps. After closing the business for just one day to sign the papers which turned over ownership to the new group, they went to work purchasing and installing new dishwashing equipment in the two bars and the kitchen, changed the tap lines, installed all new kitchen equipment, updated the menu, and improved the quality of the food being served. Popular fish fry Their Friday fish fry has been popular, offering perch, haddock, walleye, and shrimp. But Halbach said they also sell a lot of burgers, and other popular menu items have been fish tacos and their Philly, Cuban, and Reuben sandwiches. With a dining room which seats up to 80 people, Halbach said they are planning to take the menu up another notch starting this fall and serve more supper club fare including steaks, soups, and pastas. She said she eventually would like to have Harbor Bar make its own pizzas and offer delivery in the local area. Other future changes discussed are an expansion of the kitchen and the dream of adding a rooftop bar. That is just part of the vision Halbach and her partners have for Harbor Bar & Grill. With beautiful views of Lake Winnebago from the main bar area, the dining room, and a large deck, she said she would like the business to become known as a destination for events. That could include weddings, rehearsal din-

ners, showers, and other parties of all sorts. She said they have acquired some buffet tables to assist with that growing aspect of the business, and encourages anyone planning an event to call her at the business, (920) 439-1450. They have already gained some experience hosting events there, including pitching a 30-foot tent outside and doing a brat fry on the opening weekend of sturgeon spearing in February. Live music offered Harbor Bar & Grill also offers live music on most Sundays and a number of Saturdays from 2 to 5 p.m. throughout the summer. Upcoming performers include Jim & Nancy on Saturday, July 28, and Kaukauna Johnny on Sunday, July 29. Halbach said they are fortunate to have Mary Hauser continuing to work at Harbor Bar & Grill, having moved out of the kitchen to do serving and hostessing. Joining Hauser—a 15-year employee of Harbor Bar & Grill—are some new cooks and servers whom Halbach said may eventually allow her to focus more on the business aspect of Harbor Bar & Grill. The busy woman also is pursuing her degree in accounting both to help her manage the books of her three establishments and to someday provide outside accounting services for other businesses and individuals. She already has a good head for business on her shoulders as witnessed back in 2007 when she was featured in a USA Today article as a college student who already had a 401K plan. For now there is plenty to do at Harbor Bar & Grill. During the busy boating and fishing season, many people dock their boats at Stockbridge Harbor and take the short walk up the hill to Harbor Bar. In addition to the food items mentioned earlier, patrons are commenting positively about the muddled old fashioneds still served there. To muddle a drink means to press the ingredients against the side of the glass with a muddler, thus releasing the flavors of the fresh ingredients

so that they bind with the alcohol better. The business is open seven days per week in the summer, starting at 3 p.m. Mondays and 11 a.m. every other day of

CACHF provides strong support for community By Faye Burg Health care has a strong supporting partnership in the greater Calumet County area. The partner is a community-supported public trust known as the Calumet Area Community Health Foundation. Through community contributions the Calumet Area Community Health Foundation continues to support medical training, education, and health care equipment/facilities needs for the benefit of the wider Calumet area, most recently completing a $3 million pledge for the renovation at Ascension Calumet Hospital. Since the foundation was created in 1998, the Calumet Area Community Health Foundation has served its mission statement well. That statement reads, “Promoting the health, welfare and health related education which indirectly or directly support and benefit Calumet Medical Center and the health of citizens residing within the Chilton, New Holstein, Kiel, Hilbert, Potter, Stockbridge and Brillion

Zip Codes.” To date, approximately 90 percent of all grant money awarded by the foundation has gone to support Ascension Calumet Hospital, in conjunction with its mission. Largely, the fiscal backing has supporting infrastructure needed for continued excellence in health care through services provided at Ascension Calumet Hospital. Such generosity requires a solid financial base. Calumet Area Community Health Foundation currently has approximately $5.4 million in its base fund. The Calumet Area Community Health Foundation continues to reach out to individuals and groups in the community to request their help in building up the fund’s balance. “We truly rely on the community to keep this fund working properly to pay dividends back to the health care community,” Calumet Area Community Health Foundation President Glen Calnin said.

Foundation (CACHF) is a tax exempt public charity trust, operating exclusively within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. The Calumet Area Community Health Foundation was created in 1997 with the same spirit and sense of community, as when Ascension Calumet Hospital began in 1954. Prior to Ascension Calumet

Hospital’s decision to affiliate with Affinity Health System almost 20 years ago, Calumet Medical Center’s Board of Directors had the foresight to establish the foundation. They accomplished that task as a means of maintaining the presence of the hospital in Chilton for the community’s long term future. Turn to cachf/page 8

Rippn-Lips expands

500 square feet added to growing local business By Mark Sherry In response to ever growing customer traffic of fishermen and hunters, RippnLips Tackle Company has completed a 500 square foot expansion of its retail facility in Stockbridge. Located in the same Stockbridge Square shopping center at 106 S. Military Rd. (STH 55) in which Mud Creek Coffee Cafe is located, Rippn-Lips has been busting at the seams for several years as outdoorsmen have come to know it as the place to go for anything they need on nearby Lake Winnebago and much more. At one time owner Bill Lodi considered converting space in the rear of his store into an indoor archery range, but that idea had to be shelved as customer demand for fishing and hunting gear continues to grow. Parsons Brothers Construction Co. of Stockbridge completed renovation of the retail addition within the past two months. The last step in the five-week process was cutting away the wall on which Rippn-Lips’ painted lures had been hung to reveal the additional retail space. More hunting supplies Now those lures take up most of a wall in the new addition. Much of the rest of that space holds the growing selection of hunting supplies including a selection of crossbows, ammunition, scents, calls, broadheads, and much more. Not surprisingly, the new addition is decorated with some impressive trophy fish, deer, and other animals. Lodi said he is continuing to order more inventory and encourages local outdoorsmen to let him know what they want and need. He said this past year has been a good one, helped by a “phenomenal” ice fishing and spearing season. “It gets crazy in here,” Lodi said about sturgeon spearing season in the Sturgeon Capital of the World. While temperatures are in the 80s and 90s this summer, Lodi is already preparing for the next ice fishing season by painting lures. Hand-painted lures have become a huge part of his business, both with over-the-counter sales and to customers worldwide via the internet.

Bill Lodi of Rippn-Lips Tackle Company in Stockbridge stands in front of the newly expanded retail area at his business.

While Lodi said his lure painting process has become streamlined, he also added, “I’m always reinventing myself with colors.” He introduced 20 new colors in the past year, taking input from fishermen on what colors and designs work or do not work. Water clarity can impact that, Lodi said, so conditions are always changing—part of the challenge and fun of fishing. He said he tends to sell lures painted with purple the most, followed by pink. “Sometimes stuff just comes in my head,” he said of his mixtures of colors and designs. Other painters, experts The work of other lure painters also is for sale at Rippn-Lips. The company’s connections with experts on the local fishing and hunting scenes is a definite plus for customers. Part-time employees


Through an agreement with Ascension Health care and its affiliations, the Calumet Area Community Health Foundations gives assurances to the community that Ascension Calumet Hospital will always be part of the area’s health care provider systems. When the foundation was created, its base of funds stemmed from a portion of community investments that had previously supported the hospital. Over time, other contributors both small and large, have continued to help the fund grow. The foundation’s presence provides community members with a reliable entity though which their contributions support continued, quality-driven health care facilities and professionals in the Calumet area. The Calumet Area Community Health Foundation is governed by a local board of directors. Current directors include

Scott Schwarz of Sherwood and Dennis Totzke of Pipe are avid fishermen who know the Lake Winnebago system well. People come from states away to enjoy the Winnebago system, and at RippnLips Tackle Company expert advice is always in stock. Some of those experts will be on hand on Sunday, Aug. 5 as Rippn-Lips hosts a meet-and-greet and swap meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the entire parking lot of the shopping center. Lodi said vendors will be coming from all sides of the lake. Rippn-Lips’ pro staff will be on hand with their boats to do hands-on seminars and demonstrations, and the Quinney Fishing Club is lined up to add to the festival feel of the day. Another addition to the marketing effort of Rippn-Lips Tackle Company in the past year is the addition of a Facebook group known as the Lake Winnebago Junkies. While the group just started around March 1 it already has

over 4,000 members, Lodi said. He said the group is family friendly and there are very strict rules about not using profanity on the site. “It’s been very good,” Lodi said of the Facebook group. “There’s a lot of good guys in the group. We’re all about sharing and helping each other out.” Shirts, hats, and decals have been produced for members of the group to purchase in the store. They join other clothing items in the store which have been a growing part of the Rippn-Lips business as well, including new sturgeon hoodies. Stop in at the newly expanded RippnLips Tackle Company which is open during the summer on Mondays through Wednesdays, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Fridays, 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 5 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays, 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Also find out more at

Foundation President Glen Calnin looks forward to working together with Ascension Calumet Hospital and the community at large to advance health care in the greater Calumet County area. “We are very fortunate to have the hospital we have right here in the heart of our county,” he said. “The foresight of the Foundation’s founders was a gift to us all as we collectively work toward even better health care for Calumet County. The new facilities combined with the dedicated staff of Ascension Calumet Hospital is truly an asset that adds to the quality of life in our communities.” “Donations to the foundation have the ability to make all of our lives better for generations to come,” he added.

Hardware Plus expands offerings By Mike Mathes Lawn and garden products have always been a staple at Brillion’s Hardware Plus location. This year, Hardware Plus gave that department a boost, expanding into a full Lawn and Garden Center. The internal reconfiguration has enabled Hardware Plus to expand its lawn and garden offerings, while making them more accessible to the customer. “We devoted almost 1,000 square feet from our addition to the project. By knocking down a wall that separated our warehouse from our store, we loosened the area up,” owner Mike Bubolz said. “As a result we have really been able to expand all of our lines,” he added. In addition to handling all its traditional lawn and gardening offerings, this allowed Hardware Plus to expand into wider offerings in patio and lawn furniture sets, and a greater selection of grilling options. Hardware Plus offers the entire range of grills, including the popular Traeger pellet grills. “We also have a full variety of marinades, rubs and sauces to go along with our grills and accessories,” Bubolz added. Sporting goods options Expanding the space for the Lawn and Garden Center has created positive ripple effects in other departments. Product categories have been added in sporting goods and housewares, thanks to the extra space created by the expansion. “These are categories our customers have been asking about, and now we are able to offer them,” Bubolz added. Items like footballs, basketballs, fishing accessories, kids sandbox and sand toys, water pistols, kids pools and pool accessories are all available on site at Hardware Plus. “Fishing is popular around here with all our small lakes,” Bubolz said. “We are also starting to add in our bicycles category.” Paint department shift Always sporting a strong paint center, Hardware Plus has now shifted its paint center space to a central location in the store. “We given it some room to grow, and we intend to spend more space on paint displays,” Bubolz noted. Hardware Plus features the Valspar paint line—offering quality paints for both interior and exterior needs. Other changes on the horizon include an opportunity to grow the plumbing and electrical product lines. Hardware Plus remains committed to serving the needs of local contractors along side the do-it-yourselfers who want to make quick fixes to their homes. Growth is also projected in the fasteners segment of the store. Do It Best Center Buboltz, his wife Joy, and their team of employees pride themselves in top notch service as a Do It Best Hardware Center. For the past six years, they have served the Brillion-Hilbert area in the best way they know how—taking care of the hardware and service needs of their customers. Their hometown service mentality permeates all departments at Hardware Plus because they believe in giving their neighbors something they won’t find in big box stores. “We like to offer hands-on service in the retail aisle. Our staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of the hardware industry, and they area good at helping our

Fuhrmann a service giant for over 38 years By Faye Burg After providing the area with heating and cooling services for the past 38-plus years, Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. is extending its quality service to include all plumbing needs as well. Jarred Ellman joined the partnership in June of 2015 to allow Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. to begin serving the area’s plumbing needs. Plumbing services offered include new construction, remodels, sales, repairs, water heaters, and water softeners. Demand for plumbing services continues to grow so Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. added another plumber, Greg Van Lanen, to the company along with a plumbing helper. Coming from the Brillion area, Van Lanen has been a journeyman plumber for eight years. Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. also continues to be available 24/7 to provide residential and business heating and cooling needs. Residential and commercial From new home and business needs to existing homeowners and owners of small commercial buildings who would like to replace, upgrade or repair their heating and cooling equipment, Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. thrives on their busy schedule of providing quality service to their clients. Service tune-ups have been strong through fall and winter with additions and remodeling work keeping the firm busy along with new commercial construction projects, such as Country Visions Co-op.

While they service most heating and cooling products, Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. is primarily a Carrier dealership receiving numerous awards over the years from Carrier acknowledging their quality workmanship. Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. specializes in commercial and residential heating, air conditioning, boiler systems, radiant in-floor heating, forced air heating and cooling, wood, and oil. Fuhrmann does a lot of work in new construction and existing homes, performing a nice mix of retrofits and remodeling work. Approximately 80 percent of its business is forced air heating and cooling. With the expansion of natural gas into more rural areas, system conversions have also kept the employees busy to ready their customers for spring hook-ups to the natural gas lines. Ductless AC systems installed Central air is now standard in nearly every new home and also can be added to existing homes. Homes that have hot water heat and are without duct work can be a bit tricky to air condition and can be costly. The ductless split system air conditioners work well—and is very affordable—in those situations if duct work is not feasible. Popular in today’s homes is radiant or in-floor heat, which is often called for in basements of new home construction projects even if the owners do not plan on using it. Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. does a large number of in-floor retrofits in cold floor areas and warms the area with radiant tubing either under the sub floor or in a concrete slab. It is most efficient if tubing is installed

With today’s new home construction built tight and insulated well, indoor air needs to be exchanged with outside air to prevent health problems and other issues such as excess moisture and mold. Air exchange units are very common today and highly recommended. Fuhrmann installs many units along with performing duct cleaning and appliance and bath fan venting to improve indoor air quality. Fuhrmann Plumbing, Heating & Cool-

ing Inc. offers residential customers the opportunity to join an annual computerized list where annual check-ups are performed and they also offer free estimates for customer projects.

People make difference at St. Vincent By Mark Sherry There are a lot of things throughout the aisles of the St. Vincent de Paul store in Hilbert, but more important than the items are the people. That includes the shoppers, volunteers who help operate the store, Manager Susan Wittmann, and the volunteer Board of Directors—and one other very important group. Critical to the primary mission of the St. Vincent de Paul organization are the people in need who benefit from the variety of services provided. At one of their recent monthly meetings, board members said they believe there are more of those people out there but that they may be too proud to ask for help or that there is a stigma attached to needing assistance. Board members said they want people to know that assistance is given with a high degree of confidentiality. “I know there are a lot of people out there who need help,” said Rita Burns, the board’s treasurer. She added the reminder that people in need are the reason St. Vincent de Paul exists—they need each other. Sometimes the need arises after a disaster such as a fire or a storm; other times it could be the loss of a job or the passing of a family member. Whatever the reason someone needs help, they are encouraged to stop in the Hilbert store to pick up a simple application form. Assistance can come in the form of rental assistance, clothing, furniture, gas cards, energy assistance, food cards, and other items a person might need to operate a household. In addition to having a need for people

Constantly looking to continue to be innovative with products and services, Sosa is looking forward to bringing new products including new drinks and flavors to his retail outlets as well as for his wholesale clients. “Terra Verde is a little company that has grown due to the support of the surrounding communities,” Sosa said, adding Terra Verde has stayed true to its original vision to become a coffee house for people to gather for conversation, congregation and to exchange experiences. Great food and company can be found when you visit Terra Verde as staff members strive to continue to offer a true coffee shop essence to all customers. “Shop, stay and relax,” Sosa said. “Enjoy food, drink, coffee.” Sosa said he is most grateful for the support of the community that embraced Terra Verde and the Sosa family. “Our doors are open to everyone and anyone,” Sosa said. “We want all to feel welcome.” More information on Terra Verde can be found by visiting their website at or by calling (920) 849-9050.

St. Vincent

continued from page 13 began volunteering at the store. There is always plenty to do as donations of items—accepted only during the store’s open hours—continue to pour in, especially during the warmer months when rummage sales are held. There are no set hours for volunteers as Wittmann and board members said they will take people whenever they can help. Burns started volunteering when St. Vincent de Paul was located in downtown Hilbert in a former hardware store. The store—which has been open for 20 years— has been at its location along STH 32/57 on the village’s south side for about 18 years. She has been on the board for at least 10 years. The current main store building was constructed for St. Vincent de Paul, but about half a dozen years ago the organization saw the need for expansion and purchased the former meat market building next door. That building houses furniture which has been donated to St. Vincent de Paul. Just this past winter, that building was expanded again with an addition measuring 20 feet by 70 feet. The new addition blended very well with the existing structure so many people may not have even recognized that the Hilbert store has grown once again. The new addition provides a place for donated furniture to be kept before it can be processed and put out on the sales floor. Wittmann and board members said people often express how impressed they are with both the volume and quality of furniture available at the store. St. Vincent de Paul has volunteers who will pick up furniture from garages or first-floor structures anywhere in Calumet County, and they will do the same for delivery of furniture purchased there. The patronage from another group of people—thrift store shoppers—helps make those projects happen, and the Hilbert store has a lot to offer those shoppers. From clothing to housewares and toys to knick-knacks—and a whole lot more—the Hilbert St. Vincent de Paul store has it, all at thrift store prices. While St. Vincent de Paul is a church-based organization, the board members stress that it is open to everyone—and that includes shoppers, new board members, volunteers, and especially people in need.

Thrivent helps connect faith, finances By Faye Burg Paul Yancy and his team at Thrivent Financial in Brillion enjoys serving the Christian community by helping members make wise choices with their money and live generously. The office has recently moved from 422 W Ryan Street to 428 W Ryan Street. “The move provided us with more room and efficient office space to better serve our clients.” Yancy said. A Thrivent Financial consultant for 18 years, Yancy provides a vast array of financial planning products and services to Calumet County and the surrounding areas to help members meet their lifestyle goals. New to the office is Financial Associate Nicholas Euler, who has been working with Yancy for about a year. Euler is excited to be a part of a business he loves and said time truly flies while he is at the office. “It is hard to see people in hard financial circumstances,” Euler said, adding it is personally rewarding for him to be able to help others make wise decisions with their money and create personal financial road maps. “Whether you are just starting our in your career or are preparing for retirement, I’ll assess your situation and develop a financial strategy designed exclusively for you,” he said. Retirement income strategies, financial needs analysis, asset allocation, accumulation strategies, estate protection, and fee based financial planning are part of the financial services the team provides for members. Educational funding options are also a part of the offerings as well as mutual funds, annuities, insurance, and charitable giving options.

Thrivent to be wise with money and live generously. “We believe that all that we have is a gift from God and that generosity is an expression of faith,� Yancy said. “We succeed when our members and their communities thrive. We value our relationships.� Thrivent Financial strives to connect faith and finances for good, and shows members how to make an impact in their communities. Thrivent Action Teams is a volunteer project opportunity that makes it easy for members to support a cause in their community. Adult Thrivent Benefit members are eligible to lead up to two action teams per year. Thrivent provides those that lead with invitation cards for volunteers, a “Live Generously� t-shirt for each volunteer, promotional banners for the event, a $250 gift card to use for expenses, and thank you cards. Since the program’s inception in 2015, more than $669,000 has been raised in Calumet County alone. Thrivent Builds with Habitat for Humanity connects members with opportunities to share their time and talents on construction and building repair projects in area communities and other states and countries. In July of 2015 Yancy traveled to Guatemala City to participate in a Thrivent Builds project where a home was constructed for a deserving family.

Both Yancy and Euler agree that money is a tool, not a goal. “If people are comfortable where they are at, it’s easier for them to be generous.� Yancy said he loves coming to work every day and working with people to create a plan and make wise choices with their money. “I work with really nice people and I really enjoy it,� he said. “I love helping people with their finances which helps their families and their Christian communities.� Yancy said the common question since Euler joined the office is if he will be retiring soon. “Only the good Lord knows what our future holds,� he said. “I love what I do and plan to continue working indefinitely.� Helping people be better with their finances allows them to live more generously, Yancy said, adding his office works with other Thrivent offices in Calumet County to help people achieve their financial goals.

Dr. Dellaria to join clinic staff By Faye Burg Dr. Ben Dellaria is set to join the clinic staff of Ascension Calumet Hospital as a family medicine physician later this year. Ben is a native of Lindenhurst, Illinois, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, graduating Magna Cum Laude. While at St. Thomas, Ben played for the men’s soccer team, was a resident advisor for the Catholic Men’s Floor and volunteered weekly with the Missionaries of Charity. He furthered his education by attending the Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska where he earned his Doctor of Medicine degree. Upon entering medical school, Ben immediately knew he would pursue family medicine as it satisfied his passion for both service and relational care. During his time at Creighton, Ben became very involved in a student-run free clinic and the Catholic Medical Association. He also tutored and mentored younger medical students and took part in intramurals as often as he could. Ben’s tutoring including teaching anatomy and neuroscience.

Dr. Ben Dellaria will soon join the clinic staff at Ascension Calumet Hospital as a family medicine physician.

He was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, Gold Humanism Society and Alpha Sigma Nu, an honor society for Jesuit colleges. During his time in medical school, Ben served as clinic manager at Magis Clinic where he realized there was a

need to help connect patients in the psychiatry clinic to broader care and worked to increase the level of care provided to the patients. Ben was also active with the Catholic Medical Student Association and the St. Thomas Irresistible Revolution, a service group oriented to finding Christ in the poor that were served by the group. As coach for the Urban Starz, Ben helped get kids interested in soccer with the inner city soccer team in Minneapolis. In his free time, Ben and his wife Molly love hosting friends and family for dinner or games. They also take their daughter Lena on many walks and Ben hopes to teach her how to fish someday. “I enjoy improving my camping and fly fishing skills with my wife,” he said, adding the couple will welcome another child soon. In addition to reading recreational books, Ben still enjoys playing soccer when he can. With roots in Illinois, Ben is an avid Chicago Bears fan, and can be spotted in blue and orange almost year-round. He is excited to be part of the program and is looking forward to learning more about being a full-spectrum physician.

Managers share same goals at Vogel By Mark Sherry Managers at Vogel Chevrolet in Kiel have varying lengths of tenure with the business, but all of them share something in common—the desire to do quality work with as little hassle as possible for the customer. From three-year veteran Joel Noordyk in service and 30-year employee Kelly Johnson in sales to 21-year employee Brian Hruby in the body shop, all of them talk about making life as easy as possible for the customer while providing the best possible service. It is the Vogel Chevrolet way of doing things. In the showroom, sales representatives Kelly Johnson and Ed Hartmann know all about quality—they look at it everyday in the new vehicles being produced by Chevrolet. Johnson said there is a lot of excitement already about the all-new 2019 Silverado pick-up truck which will be hitting the lots this fall. “It’s a whole new truck,” Johnson said of Chevrolet’s number-one seller. “Doing all the research on it, it’s amazing what they put in this truck.” A lot to look at From technology to fuel efficiency to style, the 2019 Silverado will have plenty of new things for truck enthusiasts to explore. Just one example, Johnson said, is the return of the square box interior for the first time since 1987. “That’s just the tip of the iceberg,” he said. While people wait for the new Silverado to arrive, they can check out the all-new 2018 Equinox. Customers are liking the changes on this tremendous-selling crossover, including increased fuel efficiency while maintaining all the power drivers need. The Chevrolet Traverse also is new for 2018. Johnson called the Traverse a “good, solid vehicle” which serves a broad range of drivers as a mid-size SUV. There are plenty of other quality new vehicles on the sales lot at Vogel Chevrolet, and now there will be a greater emphasis on quality pre-owned vehicles as well. Vogel Chevrolet is enrolled in GM’s Certified Pre-Owned Program. The program gives customers some peace of mind knowing that the vehicles went through a more in-depth safety inspection—a 172-point inspection, to be exact—and also have an extended bumper-to-bumper warranty as well as an extended power train warranty through GM. “We just enrolled at the beginning of February, and are just receiving the supplies to get going on the inspections,” said Tara Vogel of Vogel Chevrolet. The daughter of owner Mike Vogel, Tara is carrying on the longtime Vogel traditions at the dealership. No hassle, low pressure With 24 years in sales at Vogel Chevrolet and six more in service and detailing before that, Johnson said his sales philosophy has not changed. “We stay with the same approach we’ve always had—no hassle, low pressure,” he said. “We look at you not as a sale but as a member of the family.” Helping to get certified used vehicles ready for the sales lot will be Vogel’s service department led by Noordyk. He said the department recently acquired a new Road Force wheel balancer to help in the wheel and tire balancing process. Vogel Chevrolet services all makes and models of vehicles, providing pick-up and delivery of vehicles at businesses and residences in the Kiel and New Holstein areas. From oil changes to engine rebuilds, transmission work and everything in between, Vogel Chevrolet can do it. It also has a fleet of loaner vehicles, use of which is available to service customers free of charge. What Vogel Chevrolet does is important, but so is how it does it. Noordyk said, “We want to be as fair as possible and give them options. Sometimes some repairs can wait. We are low pressure. We want to treat them the way we would want to be treated.” Hruby knows all about how things are done at Vogel Chevrolet. Even though he is just starting his tenure as the body shop manager, he worked in the shop for 21 years before leaving briefly. Now he is back and said he is “very excited for coming back and working with the guys.” Those guys have a lot of years of experience at Vogel, led by Gary Zahorik with 44 years, Paul Schmitz with 25 years, and Dave Kapellen with 30 years of body shop experience. They work on all makes, models, and years of vehicles, fixing anything from the most minor of “dings” to major collision damage. They also do a lot of price matching to get new parts, not after-market knockoffs.

Brian Hruby is a 21-year veteran of Vogel Chevrolet but just recently became the body shop manager.

Hruby said as he gets more comfortable with the body shop management he hopes to free up more time to get back out in the shop doing the things he has enjoyed doing since he was a kid. Raised in the Meeme area, Hruby is a 1994 graduate of Kiel High School and lives

Celebrity 20 Questions The Chilton Furniture Twins Today’s Celebrity 20 Questions features two well-known local advertising personalities—a pair of twins from Chilton Furniture, located in the Southside Shopping Center in Chilton. You have seen them in newspaper ads and in TV commercials talking about their rather simple but unique concept of being “really laid back.” They call themselves Business Jerry and Casual Jerry. So we thought we’d give you a chance to meet the twins in up-close-and-personal fashion. They have never been seen together in public, and with the exception of the newspaper, it is rare that you will ever find them on the same page. But here are some of their answers to the pressing questions of the day. What’s the deal with the number 90? Is it your favorite number? Business Jerry: I never had an opinion one way or another. But it is really starting to grow on me. Casual Jerry: To me it sounds substantial and exciting. It seems the number 90 makes people sit up and pay attention. And besides, we do always have at least 90 recliners on our showroom floor. Do people ever come in and ask to count the recliners? Casual Jerry: Yep, can you believe it? Some people can be such skeptics! Business Jerry: They sure do. When I get the question, “Are you sure there are 90 chairs?,” I offer to give them a personal guided counting tour. I’ve never had to give one of those tours. Do you really have 90 on the floor at all times? Or is that just a gimmick? Business Jerry: Actually, we usually have over 100. Casual Jerry: 90 fits really nicely on my jersey. And I’m not about to gain more weight just to fit the number 100 on my chest! So with all of this recliner talk, can we assume that recliners are your favorite department in the store? Casual Jerry: The only place that I could possibly be more laid back would be the Mattress Department. Business Jerry: Just like a good parent, it’s never wise to pick favorites. We are really proud of every department in our store. And they are all very important to our business. But just between you and me, I do have a slight leaning toward the recliners. Which one of these recliners is the favorite? Business Jerry: I’m going to have to let you ask him! (pointing to Casual) Casual Jerry: Whichever one I can fall asleep in the quickest. Did I say that out loud? Why so many recliner styles? Business Jerry: Every one of our

customers is different, so we need to have the right chair for each of them. Casual Jerry: I hate to sound like that Bubba guy in the movie, but we have recliners for big guys and recliners for little ladies. We have recliners in sofas and recliners in loveseats. We have recliners that lift you and recliners that massage you; power recliners and recliners with tilting headrests; recliners in leather and fabric recliners that look like leather. Yep, we have a recliner for just about anyone! What’s your favorite brand of living room furniture in the Chilton Furniture showroom? Business Jerry: That’s kind of a loaded question, because there are so many options to consider. But I really love the quality of our Smith Brothers upholstered furniture. Handcrafted and bench made, it’s as close to heirloom quality that you can find in today’s market place. But to be honest, we have a wide variety of brands to fit everyone’s style and budget. Casual Jerry: I have to be honest. Me and my La-Z-Boy have a very tight relationship, if you know what I mean. What’s your favorite color? Casual Jerry: I think they’re all great. That’s why rainbows are so beautiful. Business Jerry: I would say it’s the color that makes each of my customers the most comfortable in their home. So you could say my favorite color changes with every customer! Will you ever wear those Hawaiian shirts again? Casual Jerry: I wouldn’t mind shaking things up a bit on occasion. But those decisions are made by Mr. Serious over there! Business Jerry: For me? Probably not. The New Year’s hat and kazoo have already moved me out of my comfort zone. I’ll leave the Hawaiian stuff to him. How do you feel about sharing the spotlight with a twin? Business Jerry: The day that I introduced my twin brother is the day that things started hopping around here. As

laid back as he is, people really seem to like him. Casual Jerry: Hey, thanks brother. I was always told that my reclining skills and laid back attitude wouldn’t get me anywhere. Look who’s laughing now! Can you think of anything nice to say about your twin brother? Business Jerry: Casual has a way of keeping things light around here. He helps make this a relaxing place to be. Casual Jerry: Someone has to be the adult in the room. He’s the best man for the job. So...How laid back are you really? Casual Jerry: Just like you see in the commercials. No more. No less. Business Jerry: Never judge a book by its cover. Its always better to look inside and see for yourself. The same is true for us and our staff. You have to come and visit us to find out for sure. What’s the best time to shop at Chilton Furniture? Casual Jerry: Hmm...whenever the doors are unlocked? Business Jerry: How about: Mondays and Tuesdays, 9-5; Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 9-8; Saturdays, 9-3. But not on Sundays. We all need that day to spend time with our faith and our families. So tell me why I should trust you guys to teach me about how I can get a better and healthier night’s sleep? And why I should buy my new mattress from you? Business Jerry: Great question. First and foremost, you should always consider purchasing from someone who earns your trust. That reigns true for your groceries, your car, your clothes, and yes, your mattress. Second, we have a very wide selection of sleep systems to offer from the best brands. And we know how to match their features and benefits to the needs of our customers. Personally, I would love to teach you about the features of our new Tempur-pedic mattresses with adjustable power bases. They are awesome! Casual Jerry: It’s simple. I have a lot of experience in the rest and sleep departments.


We, the undersigned, hard-working staff of Chilton Furniture, who have to serve under the self-proclaimed celebrity presence of the two Jerrys hereby give permission for said Jerrys to serve as celebrity representatives of Chilton Furniture on our behalf.

What sets you apart from other home furnishing stores? Business Jerry: That question requires a multi-faceted answer. First, we are a full-service furniture and flooring retailer. That allows our customers to work with the same sales and design associate for an entire decorating project, under the same roof. Kind of a one-stop shopping experience. Second, our staff has tons of experience. It’s that experience that helps point our customers toward their goal of a beautiful and comfortable home. Casual Jerry: Is he done talking yet? It’s simple. We are really laid back. And we let our customers do the same! When they are in our store, the stress of the high-pressure salesman goes away. Why should people come to shop at Chilton Furniture? Business Jerry: Seriously, we offer a completely different shopping experience. No salesman following you around with a clipboard. No high Turn to TWINS/page 21

Chilton Furniture does indeed have more than 90 recliners on their showroom floor. And they really are laid back. And by the time I finished this interview, so was I!

Stockbridge has much to offer

Village of Stockbridge officials said they believe the lyrics of the John Cougar Mellencamp song “Small Town” go a long way to describing how they think of their community. Some of those lyrics are these: “Educated in a small town Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town Used to daydream in that small town Another boring romantic that’s me.” In other words, they said the “Sturgeon Center of the World” continues to be a great community. The village of Stockbridge has inherited a rich cultural history and contains some the most beautiful landscape in Calumet County, village officials said. Consider the breathtaking sunsets over the shores of Lake Winnebago, the Niagara Escarpment that runs through its fields, and its quaint downtown. Although it is small, the village of


Stockbridge has the infrastructure to support an excellent quality of life for any family—an award winning public school system, great park and recreation areas, public water and sewer services, first-rate Fire Department and First Responder units, and a wide variety of restaurants, a café, and shops. For the conscientious developers, there is over 2.5 square miles of vacant, developable land readily served by public water and sewer and a large volume of commuter and tourist traffic on the STH 55 thoroughfare. To say that we are a community with untapped potential is an understatement. If it has been a while since you have taken the scenic drive to Stockbridge, what are you waiting for? You will be glad that you came! “No I cannot forget where it is that I come from I cannot forget the people who love me Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town And people let me be just what I want to be.” —John Cougar Mellencamp

Am. “That one didn’t get driven much,” he said, adding, “I was the one customizing the inside.” He graduated from the Auto Body program at Lakeshore Technical College in Cleveland in 1995, and less than two years after that had landed a job at Vogel Chevrolet. “We always pride ourselves on the quality of work and the integrity,” Hruby said of the body shop. That includes

making sure they have quality, modern equipment in the shop to handle everything, such as the new aluminum welder Vogel acquired and the new puller which can handle both steel and aluminum. In some instances they also employ an outside paintless dent repair service which has the tools, methods, and experience to best serve Vogel Chevrolet’s customers—something every department there puts at the forefront.

Best choice in stone is Buechel

If you want quality and a company that will be there from concept to completion, then the only real choice in stone is Buechel Stone. Buechel Stone provides the best, most dependable experience in the natural stone industry—guaranteed. 2017 was an eventful year. What started with big ideas turned into a year of risks, growth, and triumph for Buechel

Stone. The company kicked off 2017 by opening a fabrication facility in North Carolina to support the launch of 28 new stone veneer products. It proved to be one of the most ambitious endeavors in Buechel Stone’s 53-plus year history. An interior remodel of their Fond du Lac Showroom produced wall panel displays for creating high-quality imagery to showcase on a newly revamped Web site and updated product literature. But ultimately, the company credits its successes to an incredible staff at all locations. Because no accomplishments would

have been possible without Team Buechel, the company continued its Extreme Anniversary Program. Don Fesing celebrated his 40-year anniversary with a well-deserved seven-day all-inclusive trip to Mexico for two. A DeWalt drill, TV, kayak/bike package, charter fishing expedition, stove/fridge combo, and $500 to $2,000 cash were just some of the other gifts dedicated to honoring tenured team members. Buechel Stone continued their commitment to a healthy workplace with an onsite garden plot, nutrition awareness,

corporate yoga classes, and wellness challenges. They closed out the year with team building and safety training. As the company enters 2018, Buechel Stone is preparing for even more growth by raising their investment in talent with an increased referral bonus ($300 after six months and $600 after a year for both the referrer and the new person).

What sets Farm & Home apart?

It’s the people!

Each year when I am contacted by Delta Publications to participate in the Progress special editions I go through the same process—a reflection of what changes we have made to our business within the last year. There are the additions of new product lines, a bit of remodeling, and even the dropping of some product lines that have just outlived their usefulness. Which of these changes had the greatest impact on my business and which meant the most to our customers? Then it came to me—our people make the difference. My wife Nancy and I have had the privilege of working with some pretty fantastic people in the nearly 22 years that we have owned Farm & Home. We have one associate who has been here well over 20 years, five who have been here over 15 years, and three more who have been here over 10 years. Our staff are not just sales associates but members of the community. They are your neighbors and friends and are eager to assist with your project. Our mission statement has always been this: At Farm & Home we are here to help! We at Farm & Home are very proud of expanded product lines, the beefing up of our inventory levels, the roll-out of our overhauled Web site (, the many postings on our new Facebook page, our new ship to store program that allows you to shop from the convenience of your home, and our new cooperative effort with the Eastshore Humane Association that offers you a one-time 10 percent discount on pet supplies when you adopt a new pet. All of these changes are useful, helpful, appreciated, and some are just downright neat, but what makes the greatest impact is the staff. —Kim McKeen
