Harvest Home is committed to providing seniors individualized and dignified care in a Christian, family setting where they can be strengthened and encouraged to live purpose-filled lives.

All be safely gathered in Ere the winter storms begin; God our Maker, doth provide For our wants to be supplied. Come to God’s own temple, come; Raise the song of Harvest-home. Harvest Home is a Christian-based community that not only cares for our residents’ physical and mental welfare, but also for their spiritual welfare. We

Happy Tails expands grooming services By Mark Sherry Life has a way of throwing people curveballs. Randy and Diana Schmidt of Happy Tails Pet Grooming & Boarding in Howards Grove are planning to take a curveball tossed their way and hit it out of the park. Last year at this time the Schmidts thought things were settling down after finishing a major expansion project at their business located at N7894 STH 42 just southeast of the village. A new, large room was rented out to a dog training business. Additional boarding room had been added as well, and the grooming business remained brisk. Everything was in place to run smoothly as planned. But between then and now, several area pet groomers either retired or left the business. The grooming business at Happy Tails exploded. That might seem like a good problem to have, but the Schmidts said they found themselves having to turn away new customers because they did not have the room or the staff to accommodate them in a timely fashion, and that did not sit well with them. Expanding grooming area In mid-July the couple made the decision to take back the space in which the training was being done. They have purchased two new grooming tables and dryers, hired two new groomers, and they have a third groomer on the way. Sometime in September they will be occupying the additional room, providing much-needed relief to the somewhat cramped existing grooming area. At this time Happy Tails is again tak-

ing new grooming customers who are invited to stop in, call (920) 912-6066, or e-mail Additional information is available at the website The other changes made in 2017 continue to be a big hit with customers— both the furry kind and the human kind. That includes the four new kennels in the rear of the facility which allows dogs to wander inside or outside as they wish. Not to ignore the feline friends of Happy Tails, in the past year the Schmidts’ son Jason built a new indoor cat kennel which also allows cats plenty of space to roam. Randy said there are times when all the cat kennels are filled as cat owners travel, too, and they know their pet will be well taken care of at Happy Tails.

Busy times for kennels The same goes for the dog kennels which are often full in the summertime and around holidays. Christmastime kennel space is often booked up by Halloween, Randy said. Happy Tails welcomes dogs of all shapes and sizes. Diana leads the grooming area which also sees all types of pets. She said she enjoys the diversity, adding, “You learn about the breeds—their quirks, the personalities.” Asked about the grooming services provided at Happy Tails, Diana provided the simple summary, “Whatever they need.” That includes baths, nails, anal glands, pads and feet, quick face trims, ears, and teeth. Advantages of regular grooming include the following: n control shedding—cats and dogs shed more when they spend time indoors

A generous service of Happy Tails Pet Grooming & Boarding is its offer to have customers walk in without an appointment and for $10 have an “ala carte� item done on their pet, such as nails, a quick face trim, or expressing anal glands. That revenue is in turn donated to the Illinois Bird Dog Rescue, an organization which Randy continues to serve. He recently helped rescue another dog. “I like the dogs,� Randy said, adding that English setters are his breed of choice. “I relate well to dogs.� The Schmidts have helped another cause by employing a person from RCS Empowers, Inc. of Sheboygan, a non-

The RCS employee works two days per week cleaning floors, washing dishes, etc., and is part of an employee staff at Happy Tails which now numbers nine.

Randy said one project which is being considered for the future is the addition of solar panels, but for now they will focus on taking care of their many four-legged friends coming through the front door.

CSB’s relationships last for generations The mission statement of Cleveland State Bank (CSB) is what drives employees on a daily basis: “Building financial foundations for successful client relationships that continue for generations.” It is how they operate the bank, who they are as individuals, and how they live their own lives. A large percentage of CSB’s client base spans multiple generations. As they grow, so does their staff, which also extends many generations. This allows CSB to serve all generations and diverse needs equally. The dedication CSB staff has to the community is apparent in the employee’s relationships to the clients and the time taken to fulfill their financial needs. Cleveland State Bank staff emphasizes that their first consideration is client service in everything they do. To reach their best, CSB has a core of seven guiding principles on which they focus. They are undoubtedly visible throughout the bank—Be the Solution, Reflect What You Expect, Learn and Grow, Bring Joy, Believe to Achieve, No Excuses, and Commitment to our Communities. CSB’s commitment to communities is instrumental to the success of their clients and to the surrounding communities. It begins with CSB lenders who are cognizant of their client’s demanding schedules, and the importance of the time it takes to run a successful business. For that reason, Branden Boerner, a familiar commercial lender to the area, recently joined the Cleveland State Bank team. Branden, along with the existing strong team of lenders, is unique to the financial industry for the reason that they live here, know the communities,

and understand the financial needs of their clients. CSB’s commitment to communities is also evident by the employee charity squads created to serve local nonprofit organizations. CSB management supports and encourages the charity squads to utilize work time to commit to the chosen charities, such as local food banks, veteran organizations, children’s cancer and nutrition organizations, and a local hospice center. The main initiative of CSB is to provide value to clients through financial

education and support the area’s education system. For over 10 years, CSB has been the recipient of the Wisconsin Bankers Association’s Educator of the Year award by providing resources and talented staff to teach financial literacy in area schools. In addition, the Bonzai Financial Literacy Program is available to Howards Grove Northview Elementary teaching staff, as well as many other local school districts, on behalf of Cleveland State Bank to utilize in their own classrooms. CSB also encourages individual education for the staff to be-

come experts in the banking field. Enhanced technology is available, including mobile products and personto-person payments, as well as instant issue debit cards to effectively and immediately protect clients from fraud or lost and stolen cards. Cleveland State Bank was a 2017 recipient of the Institute’s Banky™ Award for their commitment to excellence in banking and to their community. This recognition is given exclusively to the top 1 percent of community banks.

GB oncologists serving Chilton hospital By Faye Burg Green Bay Oncology got its start 42 years ago when the first cancer specialist in northeastern Wisconsin, Dr. Paul Koch, decided to focus on medical oncology. A new medical specialty at the time, Koch worked to build the practice from a single physician service to one that includes 10 medical oncologists and three radiation oncologists. He was an early adopter of electronic medical records with an emphasis on preserving the old-fashioned collegial partnership philosophy Koch first pioneered. GBO physicians do not compete with each other for patients or revenue, and put a high premium on keeping each other accountable to consistent quality work, intellectual and medical excellence, and superior interpersonal and patient relational skills. They are servants first and foremost to their patients, to the communities and health systems they serve, and to each other. Today, Tony Jaslowski, MD, FACP, and Bradley Heraly, MD, of Green Bay Oncology are proud to offer their services to patients at Ascension Calumet Hospital. Dr. Jaslowski is board certified in hematology, medical oncology and internal medicine. He was born in Chicago, Illinois and received his Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Air Force Academy. Jaslowski attended medical school at the Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and completed his internship residency and his hematology and oncology fellowship at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force

Base in Texas. He is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. “New cancer treatments continue to bring increasing promise,” Jaslowski said. “My goal is to ensure that my patients are given the very best choices to fight this disease.” Dr. Heraly is board certified in hematology, medical oncology, and internal medicine. He was raised in Casco, Wisconsin, and completed his residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a fellowship at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis. Cancer care is very rewarding for Dr. Heraly and he strives to be attentive and genuinely caring while focusing on creating strong relationships with patients. “I’m here to help shoulder the burden of your diagnosis with you and your family, and share what you’re experiencing,” he said. “Count on me to be patient and we’ll walk through this together.” Both doctors offer medical treatment for all types of cancer, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormone therapy, and provide consultation for blood cancers and non-cancer blood disorders. While providing management of blood and cancer-related symptoms, they also offer end-of-life care in terminal cancer and blood diseases. “We really value our work in the Fox Valley and Chilton areas. Getting to engage in the community is one of the most rewarding parts of our work. We especially like being able to work in close physical proximity to the primary care clinics and providers at the Chilton location.” The physicians at Green Bay Oncology

Dr. Tony Jaslowski

Dr. Bradley Heraly

practice a philosophy, which has four core components. They share a belief that cancer patients are best served by getting care as close to home as possible, so GBO doctors work hard to maintain expertise, and are dedicated to delivering that care to patients in their communities rather than patients having to drive a very long way for that care and expertise. GBO doctors believe that several minds applied to the care of a patient will give better results than a single doctor working in isolation. They share responsibility for our patients. The doctors constantly collaborate with each other, and with tertiary experts at academic centers. GBO doctors believe that patients deserve to have their priorities respected, and that honesty is always the best policy, even when the truth is sometimes scary.

Doctors work for patients, not the other way around. Cancer care is only as good as the healthcare system it is delivered in, so it is GBO’s job to give good service to the hospitals and clinics with which they work. Everyone has an important job to do, from the person scheduling the appointments to the person maintaining the generator and furnace. They strive to be good “citizens” of the healthcare system, and help things run smoothly. Dr. Jaslowski and Dr. Heraly are available Fridays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Ascension Calumet Hospital located at 614 Memorial Drive in Chilton. They can be reached by calling (920) 831-8900.

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 tremendousselling 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.

Pieper Indoor Aire grows in first 5 years By Mark Sherry When Jason Pieper began his Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care business, his biggest concern was finding enough work to keep himself busy. Five years later, Pieper has a full-time employee, assistance from several other part-timers, and he is looking for another full-timer to keep up with demand. That is a good indication that Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care is accomplishing what Pieper originally set out to do—provide quality service at a fair price. “I think I do quality work because I do things the right way, not the quickest, easiest way,” Pieper said. “I never say, ‘It’s good enough.’” New home market up An aspect of Pieper’s Indoor AireCare which will be keeping employees busy in 2018 is installation of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) in new homes. Pieper said he has installations lined up in seven or eight new homes this year, with the possibility of more bids being awarded. Helping Pieper get the work done is full-time employee Adam Raquet. The Kiel resident was in charge of the pellet stove area of Lulloff Hardware which provided him with valuable insights into the heating business. He began working full time for Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care this past March. Tom Prange helps Pieper on a parttime basis with sheet metal work, a necessity for duct work installation especially in new homes. Pieper mentioned that his business will do other “odd” sheet metal jobs when called upon as it

has the materials, the equipment, and the person to do it in Prange. Local roofers have used his services on made-to-order flashing projects. Among the several people who help Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care on a part-time basis is Jason’s girlfriend Jaime Otto, who handles the office and secretarial aspects of the business.

May need more people In addition to advertising for another full-time technician with HVAC experience, Pieper said it is possible he might need two or three more people this spring if his business is awarded more bids on doing the HVAC work in new home construction. While Pieper said he prefers doing the HVAC installations on new homes, he and his crew also do service work on all types of HVAC equipment. “It’s a big portion of the business,” he said, adding that he keeps his Monday schedule free knowing he will have 10 to 14 hours of service work come in from over the weekend. That does not mean he is not called out on weekends and nights. One of the reasons his business has grown so rapidly in its first five years is his willingness to answer the call regardless of the day or time. It is an understatement to say people are relieved to have a qualified HVAC technician show up at their door on a cold winter’s night when the furnace has stopped working. Having a created a good working relationship with some area builders, Pieper said he and his crew are doing more multiple zone, in-floor hydronic tube heating systems in new homes. In sim-

Jason Pieper, owner of Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care, stands next to one of the hydronic in-floor heating systems he recently installed. Pieper said the systems are very popular in new-construction homes these days.

plest terms, today’s hydronic heating is an energy efficient home heating system that uses tubing to run a hot liquid beneath the floor, along base board heaters, or through radiators to heat homes. Also referred to as radiant heating, this type of system has become increasingly popular among families that want added comfort and control in their heating zones, savings through lower heating bills, and a decrease in their environmental impact by making smart green building choices. While Pieper Indoor Aire-Care will service all makes and models of HVAC equipment, its installation work in new homes and system replacements tends to focus on Carrier furnaces and air conditioners, Burnham boilers, Mitsubishi split systems, and Reznor garage heaters.

In addition to heating and air conditioning work, Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care also continues to do duct cleaning. With spring right around the corner, now would be a great time to make sure ducts are clear of dust and anything else which might get in the way of having the cleanest possible air in a home. The service area for Pieper’s Indoor Aire-Care seems to have expanded over the years as well. He said when he first started most of his jobs were in the Kiel and Howards Grove areas, but he also has traveled to communities such as Fond du Lac and Menasha to do work.

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. 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 in the School Hill area with his wife of 18 years and their

two children. Hruby said the first car he owned was a 1987 Trans 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.
