PRESERVE MEMORIES & MAKE NEW ONES Over 84 years, since 1932, Eagle Tower in Peninsula State Park played a powerful role in the lives of thousands, even millions, of Door County visitors and residents. The Tower had a lifespan much longer than initially expected, and wasn't deconstructed until October 2016. The Friends of Peninsula State Park has now embarked on a community-wide effort to raise the $750,000 required to design and build a new structure at the same location on Eagle Bluff.

A Door County Portfolio The peninsula we know today began with a 1969 National G eographic article.

W

hen Ted Rozumalski photographed something in the 1960s, it was usually a significant occasion. He and his Leica camera were in the motorcade during the JFK assassination, saw Martin Luther King speak, and chronicled the LBJ administration. His historic pictures graced the pages of Time, Life, and Newsweek. When National Geographic published a feature entitled ‘Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula, A Kingdom So Delicious’ in March, 1969, it was Rozumalski’s images that gave gravity to the piece. Sleepy, idyllic Door County was suddenly thrust onto the national stage by one of the leading publications of the time. The effects of that 26-page article on tourism and DC’s hospitality industry were massive and permanent. Hotels and condos were built. A highway was constructed. Goats were placed on a roof. Revisiting “A Kingdom So Delicious” reveals a DC familiar today: camping, hiking, fishing, ship building, cherry harvests, boating, ice fishing, bed & breakfasts, artists, and Packer fandom. Family names featured in the article are still familiar. National Geographic conceived the article two full years before publication. Rozumalski spent weeks at a time over an 18-month period photographing DC — capturing thousands of images — of which only a handful were used. This time-intensive strategy would be too inefficient to pass muster in our modern era. Luckily for us, 250 outtakes survive in the archives of the Ted Rozumalski estate — a handful of which we are pleased to share here, courtesy of his son Robert. They offer a peek into DC’s past, which still appears...oh so familiar. — Larry Majewski doorcounty.net

mo’ blues, please

artisans create items

Local landscape architect Jens Jenson founded this folk art school in 1935 — as a place to reconnect with nature. Hands-on classes in painting, writing, birding, nature study, and paper arts are held in a peaceful, wooded setting.

Blues fans can look forward to another Blues on the Bay Festival. In 2016 the festival featured prominent bluesmen Billy Flynn, Oscar Wilson, Jimmy Burns, Mighty Mouth, and Dirty Deuce. The Ellison Bay Community Park will provide an incomparable outdoor setting for the blues from 3-9pm (Aug. 26).

inspired by the county, a friendly diner serves home-style meals, a coffee shop encourages visitors to linger, and an urban-style restaurant uses locally-grown ingredients and serves hand-crafted drinks. Hotels, resorts, cottages, and B&Bs are within walking distance to the village and shoreline.

The Mink is actually an estuary — river water mixing with lake water — one of the most pristine remaining. It begins in springfed wetlands just east of downtown Ellison Bay (unseen) and ends a few miles downstream at Rowleys Bay, where it meets Lake Michigan. Begin there, at Rowleys Bay Resort, put in a kayak and paddle your way into the quiet wonder.

Ephraim Vintage Festival, Hill Climb & Concours d’Elegance September 8-10, 2017

V

intage auto aficionados take note: the Ephraim Vintage Festival, Hill Climb & Concours d’Elegance on Saturday (Sept. 9) at 11:00 a.m., is a rare opportunity to see a total of 70 seldom-seen pre- and post-war classic automobiles coursing along DC back roads. Just to name a few: a 1917 Detroit Electric, 1927 Bugatti, 1930 Stutz Speedster, 1937 Rolls Royce Phantom III, and a 1937 Packard. It’s enough to make one’s heart flutter. Participants will take part in a Kort Bakkelop, which is Norwegian for “short hill climb”. The first six laps will be ‘parade’ laps, then the climb will continue with single runs until 3:00 p.m. All of the autos will be exhibited along the Eagle Harbor shoreline on Sunday (Sept. 10), starting at 11:00 a.m. and continuing into the afternoon. E ach vehicle will be judged and rated according to Concours d’Elegance’s strict standards. Trained judges will closely inspect the machines and components — with special attention placed upon period correctness and original parts, especially for the oldest cars. “I’ve done major road events since ’72”, says passionate event creator and coordinator John Baker Welch. “Over 100 events later, I thought Ephraim could benefit from combining Road America and Pebble Beach into a fall weekend. Hay bales line the route and every turn has corner workers. There’s no charge and spectators can see the vehicles up close.” The event is hosted by the title sponsor, Arbor Crowne Properties. Hagerty Insurance is presenting sponsor. Registration is at Ephraim’s lovely new inn, Hillside of Door County. — Casey Martin

This old fishing village is reminiscent of the New England coastline with its string of century-old white clapboard buildings, horseshoe-shaped shoreline, and sailboats floating in the bay. Go explore Peninsula State Park! Wander the charming tree-lined streets to discover a variety of shops — souvenir, clothing, jewelry, Irish imports, artwork, bath products, beach stuff, and homemade candy. Great restaurants, eateries, and coffee shops offer many choices — modern American, Asianinspired, tavern food, and fish boils. Inns, cottages, and hotels are within walking distance to the shops, shoreline and parks.

sports and activities

skyway drive-in theater

Hike, bike, golf, fish, canoe, kayak, paddle board, or sail in the bay. Moped, bike and slip rentals, boat tours, and charter fishing are available throughout summer.

Skyway first opened its front gate on July 26, 1950. Movies have lit up the screen every summer since then, making it the second-longest continuously running drive-in in Wisconsin. Once a common sight throughout the state, only nine drive-ins are still in operation. Put this one on your “life list”!

A showing by a local filmmaker will screen following a couple of short intro features. On Saturday, films will be shown from 2- 8 p.m., with brief intermissions, pop-up food, beverages and free popcorn. The 2017 February event showcased 20-plus short films from around the globe – chosen from 150 entries. The feature film was “The Emissary”, by local filmmaker Tim Erskine.

Fragrant Isle’s 3rd Annual “All Things Lavender” Festival Washington Island, July 21-23

A

new highlight of the Washington Island summer season — the “All Things Lavender” Festival — has blossomed over the past three years. Edgar and Martine Anderson debuted the festival in July 2015 as the fields began blooming at their Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm, which they established just five years ago. This year’s festival (July 21-23, 2017) will offer: exhibitions on growing, harvesting and the distillation of lavender plants; lavender edibles and dishes; unique scented lotions; music; local folklore presentations; painting classes and on-site massages — all in a beautiful farm setting. Though not widely known, lavender is the only essential oil that can be applied directly to the skin, helping to reduce stress and induce relaxation and sleep. Lavender also soothes minor cuts, scratches and burns. Lavender oil can be mixed with other ingredients to create heavenly-scented soaps, lotions and shampoos — products long popular for bath and spa. Culinary uses of lavender include jams, honeys, teas, baked goods and confections. Devotion, joy and luck are said to be transmitted through the scent of lavender, thus it is often used to celebrate weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions. Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm & Shop is located on Washington Island, but the Andersons have just opened a new retail store at the Top of the Hill Shops in Fish Creek (Unit A14). Both locations will carry the entire line of Fragrant Isle Lavender Products. Be sure not to miss the “All Things Lavender” Festival. Bring your camera — the blooming fields are stunning! — Casey Martin For more information visit fragrantisle.com. doorcounty.net

This little fishing village sits on the Green Bay shoreline in Southern Door. Increase Claflin, the county’s first settler, built a log cabin here in 1835. Today it is known for walleye, bass, and perch fishing. Its annual festival, ‘Little Sturgeon Days’ has live music, a horseshoe tournament and parade. Go fishing! Located in the town of Gardner. This tranquil spot is easy to miss. There’s an Italian restaurant, a potter, a chiropractor, and Wr i t e O n , D o o r County, a writing-focused arts group that Rock Island offers classes & events – go! see The Coop, a former chicken coop that writer Norb Blei used as a studio Juddville for 40 years! Peninsula 57

Center


This surprising little place, tucked away in the hear t of the county, is surrounded by farmland. There’s a winery that offers tastings and a shop with its own products, a restaurant with a model train that entertains kids and adults alike, a friendly pub, and a pizza place with outdoor dining. Go have fun! Crossroads of Hwy E and Hwy A. This entire island is a rustic state park and popular camping and kayaking destination. One of the island’s most unique features is a summer estate built by Icelandic inventor Chester Thordarson in 1920. Among the buildings is a limestone boathouse decorated with characters from the Norse Runic alphabet and original hand-carved Scandinavian furniture. Go visit the estate! Take the Karfi Ferry from Jackson Harbor on Washington Island.

Writing in the County Published Authors, Lyrical Poets and Ink-Stained Wretches

N

ovelists, biographers, naturalists, poets, songwriters, children’s writers, playwrights, essayists, illustrators, journalists and historians have created thousands of works influenced by this county. The list is long: an economist who built his own cabin on Washington Island and coined the phrase “Invention is the mother of necessity”; a writer working in an old chicken coop near Europe Lake whose short story was published in The New Yorker; a New York Times bestselling romance novelist who set a million-selling page-turner on Cottage Row while writing in a Fish Creek hotel.... If Door County is truly an ethereal place where the boundary between heaven and earth is thin, we know writers sit in that hallowed layer, scribbling in notebooks. Whether locally born, resettled visitors, or tourists looking for unique inspiration, Door County nurtures an incredibly wide variety of known and emerging writing talent. This special section begins with a selection of 40 authors – either from Door County or with the strongest of local ties. Some are nationally known, all are locally loved. It should be added that like any list of this type, ours cannot be entirely complete. There are many additional published and unpublished writers who have written – or continue to write – in and about Door County. — c o n t i n u e d

205


books • reading • writing

Among our 40 authors, some retell old tales of the Peninsula, or capture local characters. Others weave mysteries that capture national audiences, or write words so enchanting that readers return here again and again. Others deftly turn a phrase to draw laughs, or recreate images both haunting and amazing. Their works are found in libraries, in bookstores, online, onstage — each keeping a conversation alive among their many readers. Door County is also a land of poets. The list is surprisingly long, including five who have been named Door County Poet Laureate over the past seven years. Recently appointed Laureate Sharon Auberle will serve in that post until March 2019. Three years ago a new non-profit arts organization was formed – Write On, Door County – whose aim is “to focus on the importance of writing and reading, and the ability of people to connect through stories.” Discover more at writeondoorcounty.org. You can find books about Door County in bookstores and in the book sections of retailers from Washington Island down to Sturgeon Bay and beyond. Peninsula Bookman in Fish Creek is especially dedicated to maintaining an extensive selection of books by Door County authors and poets. We hope this Door County writers section helps bring our heritage alive while pointing to the future. — Cynthia Kraack & Peter Sloma

Poetry Thrives on this Beautiful Peninsula

P

oetry has always been a presence in Door County, but trying to recap the past quarter century of the Peninsula’s poetic activity is especially resonant: since 1990, various Door County poets have founded four writing groups: the Wallace group, Unabridged, Word Women and Belles Lettres. Annually, local poets now organize a Poets Retreat, a Meadows Gallery exhibit at Scandia Village, and Words on Fire (with music). We founded the Poetry Trail at Newport State Park and participate in the occasional art show or Midsummer Music concert. The Dickinson Series is now in its ninth year of monthly readings. Our local poets have won prizes from the Peninsula Pulse’s Hal Prize, the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets (WFOP), the Wisconsin Writers Association (WWA) and the Wisconsin Academy. Several poets have served as officers in WFOP and WWA, and four have been editors of the WFOP Poets Calendar. Among us, we have published as many as 50 chapbooks and books of poems. In 2015, a dozen Sharon Auberle, current local poets formed a collective to Door County Poet Laureate publish Soundings: Door County in Poetry. In short, Door County is not only home to a beautiful landscape of water, trees and stone, it is also home to the beauty of words and meter, artfully expressed. — Estella Lauter 212

The Vision of a Writing Center for Door County

P

eople have long been drawn to Door County’s natural beauty and the vibrancy of the arts that flourish here. We feel a connection with the land and the water and with each other. These connections foster stories, and these stories bring us closer together. Write On, Door County provides writing resources for children, teens, adults and seniors. We are located on 39 acres mid-way up the peninsula with a house for visiting writers to work in a place of beauty and quiet. These writers then give inspiration and instruction to those who live and visit here through workshops, readings, classroom visits, and tutoring throughout the county. Under the direction of Jerod Santek, formerly program director of the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, we have welcomed

more than 70 resident writers in our three-year history. As word has spread, we are forging alliances with writers and writing programs throughout the United States and abroad. We recognize that we can greatly expand the impact of our program — and of Door County’s significance in the writing world — if we can offer more resident opportunities, and provide classroom space to welcome students of all ages and experience levels throughout the year. To that end, we have worked with The Kubala Washatko Architects to develop plans for a new Writers Residence and Writing Center (see architectural plans at writeondoorcounty.org). There is a renaissance of writing in the air, a hunger for authentic voices and stories that capture what is meaningful in our lives. Door County is part of this renaissance. The time to move forward with these building plans is now. Door County is a place of great beauty and mystery, offering a unique setting for people to write and share their stories. We invite you to join us in making this dream come true! — by Anne Emerson doorcounty.net

Goose and Guns by Elaine Johnson, “ S tories f rom Yestery ear”

T

(pub. 2017)

he Sister Bay Bowl was altogether different years ago. Door County has changed these last thirty, forty years. You wouldn’t even think it’s the same place. E arl’s place, where the bowling alley is, was a dance hall. Where the dining area is now was living quarters and the bar ran along the dance hall. It was a pretty wild place. We had turkey shoots and goose shoots, so you’d go to those. They would put like a funnel over the turkey and put him behind a log so the only thing that really stuck up was its head, to see who could shoot them. If nobody shot the thing they’d buy a new goose or they’d buy the turkey. So there was a guy by the name of...I can’t think of that guy’s name. Well it doesn’t matter, you wouldn’t know him anyway. He came in there and he had had a few drinks. He had a goose in a burlap bag. He was telling everyone how he went to this goose shoot. He got this goose first prize, hit the target. They said, “Oh, you never got that goose.” Robbie Kodanko, early 1960s “Yes,” he said, “I got a goose in here.” So he reached down in that bag, held the bag, and pulled out this goose and let her go. That goose was loose, heh, flew one end to the other and E arl was running with a cue stick trying to hit that goose as it went by. He never did hit the goose, Hartman or something like that was his name. He got him again and stuck him in the bag. But they had this machine there that had a bear on it, had a little eye on it. So we thought we would shoot and see who shot 218

the worst, would have to buy a drink. So we all got out there with this gun, this ray gun and we’d shoot and got special marks or whatever it was. So Jerry Burress, he just couldn’t seem to hit that bear at all. So he had to buy and buy and buy and buy. So he said, “I will be right back.” (front, l-r) Elaine Johnson, Gretna Johns; He was gone (back) Lucille Johns, Helen Bergwin-Johns, for a little while Mathilda Johnson-Bergwin, Julia Bergwinand pretty soon Johnson, Anna Bergwin (circa 1933) he came in and said, “Now I’m going to shoot my own gun.” Shot this gun, a thirty aught six. Boom! Went right through the machine, thru the wall. E arl threw the whole bunch of us out. But it was fun. F rom the just-pub lished b ook “ S tories F rom Yestery ear” by E laine Johnson . Av ailab le at A l Johnson’s Sw edish R estaurant & B utik in Sister B ay. Author Elaine Johnson, 92 years old, founded Northern Lights Fish & Caviar with cousin Gretna Johns (d: 2014) in 1953. The partners purchased Rohde’s Grocery Store in 1966 (currently the location of Door County Ice Cream Factory) and sold it in 1973, having operated the two businesses simultaneously for more than eight years. 219 doorcounty.net

merlin ’ s magic calming spray

A blend of organic essential oils to help your dog calm down. . . so everyone can relax. moo - ria the cow

Mrs. Beaster’s Biskits is a family farm-based business that grows the organic fruit and veggies used in its dog treats. The free range and grass-fed meats both come from other Wisconsin family farms. I love that they don’t substitute meals, artificial flavors, fillers or fat instead of nicer natural products, and are preservative- and GMO-free. They’re also excellent for cleaning a dog’s teeth. That’s all very important, but get this: one of the treat flavors is “Wisconsin Fish Boil.” You heard right, that’s Wisconsin Fish Boil! The ingredients are whitefish, potatoes, carrots and cherries. Other treat flavors include Bison Sweet Potato, Elk Sweet Pumpkin, Lamb Plum Puddin’, Lovin’ Liver, Roast Pork Dinner, Sunday Pot Roast, Venison Cranberry, and Wild Boar-B-Que. 240

Her quirky smile is infectious. Made of soft Berber fleece and non-toxic. Moo-ria’s head squeaks, making a crinkly kind of sound. oscar ’ s critter spray

Our Fascination with Lighthouses

T

owers play an essential role in our nation’s maritime history. Active signal towers, watch towers, and light towers once dotted America’s coastlines, including Lake Michigan. These historic maritime structures continue to fascinate us, and those that are still standing are treasured popular visitor destinations. But why? The best known of the historic maritime towers is the light tower, or “lighthouse.” They stand at the entrance of major harbors, atop remote shoals or islands, or looming over the craggy outcroppings of our coastlines. Practically speaking, they are navigation aids. But culturally, they are much more than that, and there is something elusive about lighthouses that fascinates people: they are our direct link to the past, but they also served a truly heroic purpose. Lighthouses saved lives, protecting mariners as they approached rocky shores in the midst of fog and darkness. The open sea can be beautiful, but also eerie and disquieting — thus a flashing light in the distance has always been a symbol of hope and comfort. Adding to the mystique was the stalwart lighthouse keeper, who lived a life of hardship tending the light during foul weather. Yet another element of the magic is the often remote locations — where land meets sea. Door County has some of the best-preserved lighthouses and other maritime navigation structures in the U.S. — each with inspiring tales. Visit the Door County Maritime Museum (dcmm.org) in Sturgeon Bay, where you can explore the Peninsula’s history dominated by ships, shipbuilding, and commercial fishing — essentially the story of a large island in the “big lake” the Ojibwa Indians called Michigami. — Bob Desh (bio on pg. 246) doorcounty.net

Heritage and History:

E nriching the Door Peninsula Experience

V

illage and cemetery walks. Chapel tours. Family history presentations. School reunions. Historic barn events. The creation of a traveling ‘Historymobile’ – these are just some of recent initiatives by local historic entities. While each historic group stands alone, they benefit from collaboration, and the Heritage Alliance of Door County (HADC) has been working to expand that collaboration. HADC is an organization trying to further public awareness of Door County history by sharing information, expertise, and solutions to organizational challenges. Historic tourism has become an integral part of the Door County economy and encompasses more activities each year: sunset cruises on an old Chicago fireboat in Sturgeon Bay, dozens of themed trolley tours with stops at historically significant sites, a class reunion on the 100th anniversary of a grade school – bringing visitors from around the world, tours of renowned dwellings by costumed docents, guided tours of historic village buildings, water-borne group tours on water taxis – featuring extremely knowledgeable historic guides, speakers who organize historic programming for public presentations. History permeates Door County’s much-lauded status as a renowned tourism destination. — c o n t i n u e d doorcounty.net

249


HADC has been collaborating on a wide variety of marketing activities: producing a collective brochure (available at visitor centers and historic sites), maintaining a Facebook presence, helping Wisconsin Public Television produce a DVD as part of the ‘Hometown Stories’ series about Door County’s unique history. HADC has also coordinated speakers from Wisconsin Historic Society to help launch ‘The Wisconsin History Tour’ and the University of Wisconsin to make available their project “Wisconsin 101Our History in Objects. HADC reaches out to local and statewide groups to help further the success of Door County heritage tourism. From south of Brussels to north of Rock Island, every community in Door County has 250

multiple historic entities preserving and sharing their stories. Be it related to maritime, agriculture, religion, ethnicity, art, logging, farming, lighthouses, the cherry industry or tourism, on any given day history-related events are occurring across Door County. Why so much cooperative historic activity in such a relatively small, rural location? Historic enthusiast and HADC member Kristen Peil of Baileys Harbor summed it up best. “Heritage matters. E ach community has its own historic story, but by working together we can share expertise, objects, and stories to a wider public.” Pick up a copy of the new Heritage Alliance brochure at a local visitor center and start exploring Door County’s multilayered history yourself. Whether a first-time visitor or not, it will enrich your Door Peninsula experience. — Casey Martin doorcounty.net

Where “Farm-To -Table” Means Farm-To -Table

W

ouldn’t it be nice if there was a restaurant or market where the phrase ‘farm-to-table’ truly meant “from our farm to our restaurant tables and market shelves”? What if you could even visit that farm, meet the farmer or dairyman, see how goat cheese is made, say ‘Hi!’ to the animals, and really get a true sense of the food you’re about to eat? That’s exactly what Door County Creamery is all about. Their dairy goat farm, located on County Road ZZ, is exactly 1.5 miles from its namesake restaurant and market in downtown Sister Bay. Like other places, you can simply wander in, savor a 258


delicious lunch or dinner with a glass of wine indoors, or enjoy a lazy summer day while dining al fresco on an expansive patio. But you could do one better — The Johnson family Take The Tour! The Creamery’s daily tours are unlike anything else in DC. It all begins at the restaurant parking lot at 9:45 a.m., from where dairyman Jesse Johnson — or his wife Rachael — drive the 14-seat tour bus to the farm. You’ll meet members of their 159-strong family of goats (mommies, daddies, babies) and see and learn how goat milk is turned into fresh chevre and other healthy food and wellness items. After the 45-minute walking tour, it’s back to the Creamery for tastings of homemade goat milk gelato and cheese, and a full bistro lunch on the outdoor patio. Visit doorcountycreamery.com to book online and experience yet another reason Door County is a place like no other. — John Nelson doorcounty.net

Up-and-Coming Artist

Riley Bridenhagen: Door County Autumn Colors

R

aised in an artistic family surrounded with painting, photography, and overall creativity, it’s no wonder Riley Bridenhagen followed suit. Bridenhagen family members Fred, Stacy, and sons Marshal and Riley all offer something unique to the Door County art world. Having recently visited Hawaii and Thailand, avid traveler and photographer Riley notes, “Door County’s natural beauty rivals any photo you’ll see in National Geographic.” Hiking is one of Riley’s favorite Door County pastimes. One autumn day, he and long-time girlfriend, Megan McCloskey came across a stunning maple tree with every color in the spectrum. They collected leaves and his creative wheels began spinning. The result is a series of beautiful leaf art that’s like nothing you’ve seen — aptly titled “Door County Autumn Colors.”

268

Artwork & photos ©2017 Riley Bridenhagen


After researching conventional ways to preserve tree leaves, Riley came up with his own method to maintain both the organic matter and inherent colors. He began arranging the leaves into rows of 10-12 on white background paper, blending from yellows to oranges to reds — accentuating the vibrant colors and venation (vein patterns). The metamorphosis was mesmerizing! Riley won’t reveal his process for stabilizing the contents, but he is excited about the popularity of his framed leaf artwork. While some of the larger pieces are upscale due to his timeconsuming preservation process, he’s begun making smaller framed pieces featuring two or three leaves — as well as beautiful prints — widening access of the new medium to more visitors of the family’s galleries in Fish Creek and Ephraim. See Riley Bridenhagen’s “Door County Autumn Colors” series and his original landscape photography at Art of Door County (Founders Square, 4199 Main Street, Fish Creek; 920-868-1008) and Water Street Gallery (9930 Hwy 42, Ephraim; 920-854-5215). — Laurel Ciohon doorcounty.net

Painting Š2017 Lee Radtke


Lee Radtke:

Impressionistic Views of Sturgeon Bay’s Shipbuilding

S

turgeon Bay has the largest and most active working harbor in DC. Once there were dozens, offering docks and rough amenities for lumbermen, boat builders, commercial fishermen and passenger ships from Chicago and Milwaukee. Today, Gills Rock and Baileys Harbor are still home base – respectively – for commercial fishing by the Weborg clan and the Hickey brothers, while Sister Bay has the Yacht Works boat maintenance and storage facility next to JJ’s. Otherwise, the handful of northern Door County harbors that remain largely service sport fishing charters and recreational boating. But Sturgeon Bay’s waterfront is filled with heavy-duty marine businesses like Bay Shipbuilding and Roen Salvage, and the U.S. Coast Guard maintains a reliable presence. Tugboats, bridges, a 100+ year-old ship canal, pleasure craft, and yearround fishing add to a heady maritime stew of activity. The shifting light, movement and flitting color beg to be painted. Chicago artist Lee Radtke couldn’t agree more. After years of painting in northern Door, his focus has shifted from the challenges of the Peninsula’s annual plein air (painting outdoors) event in July to a series of new oils that feature Sturgeon Bay’s ships and tugs. “For some reason I’ve deeply connected with Sturgeon Bay’s harbor,” said Radtke. “Just this past winter, I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time: a clear day at sundown, the light changing quickly, too cold for plein air painting, so I took some photos and worked off the images.” The new oil paintings are in his recognizable style: bold strokes and yet impressionistic. “Details help to add scale,” said Radtke, “especially for the huge ships I’ve been painting.” — Casey Martin — continued

Always World Class, and Now Available Worldwide After less than ten years, the consensus is in...to hear creative musical artists and great tunes, there are just two local radio stations, FM 106.9 The Lodge and Rewind 97.7. It’s rare in a market of this size to hear a fine-tuned music mix, but station owner Mike Mesic’s handselected programming has the air of a playlist he’s picked just for you. The station’s tagline – “World Class Rock for a World Class County” – sums it all up, but it could have been “Where Door County Discovers New Music.” Both stations creatively range from current pop, classic, and alternative landscapes. For 2017, both stations have new websites (fm1069theLodge.com, and Rewind977.com), making highly-customized programming available not just on the radio dial, but also on online. Jaime Forest, the company’s VP Business Development, noted that both stations can now be accessed wherever a listener is located. “People can literally take us home with them — and they do — because we’re offering an experience they can’t get anywhere else.” — Casey Martin

A ‘Radically Appealing’ Classical Music Experience The new Midsummer’s Music season consists of nine high-impact, energetic, and “radically appealing” classical music programs that will be presented in 34 concerts at venues across Door County. As always, there’s a mix of well-known composers alongside others less familiar, but all will provide an enjoyable and unforgettable experience The intimate, small venue settings of Midsummer’s Music programs allows one to watch as world- class musicians communicate by eye contact, and to revel in the excellent artistic quality of some of the music world’s best performers. Clearly hear the musicians’ spoken comments, which might otherwise be inaudible. Afterwards, mingle with a glass of wine during a post-concert reception. The mixture of instruments unites innovative themes, colorful compositions and interesting arrangements that are varied according to a specific venue.

Community Theater is a Bit ‘Roguish’ Rogue Theater is celebrating its 4th season. The community theater’s goal is to get as many people involved as possible — especially on stage. After the first three years, the count is 200 and growing. The troupe performs at locations throughout the county — from restaurants to churches — but their base camp and main stage is a small, intimate theater space (seating just 40) located at 340 Jaycee Court in Sturgeon Bay. The entertainment ranges from improv, original bits, and revivals of TV comedy skits. The company’s July play is Beer for Breakfast in which a guys’ weekend is invaded by one unlikely wife. The August show is Dixie Swim Club, in which college swim-mates gather for the summer. The play unveils the changing lives of lifelong friends and is told over decades that include family issues, child rearing, and facelifts. Known for fun characters and humorous scripts, Rogue tickets are $15. Performances are at 7:30 pm (Thurs, Fri, Sat), 2 pm (Sun).

omething about Door County exemplifies what it means to ‘live with wellness.’ Three wellness professionals credit the natural beauty, the community and vacation memories as the major draws that caused them to move here. “After our DC honeymoon in 1969, we vacationed here for 10 years, eventually buying a home,” said Carol Hoehn, Tai Chi and dance instructor. “It’s the beauty of nature. We can breathe here.” “I vacationed here as a child and fantasized about moving,” said Maureen Mercier, massage therapist. “Our kids are growing up around family and a community that supports each other.” Amy Jacobs, school nurse and yoga instructor at the YMCA in Fish Creek, echoed those sentiments. “Once we started vacationing here, it became our dream to move,” said Jacobs. “There’s a natural culture for the silent sports, hiking, biking, running, golfing, boating, cross-country skiing and swimming.” “There are so many learning opportunities in Door County,” said Mercier. “Groups for birding, frog counting, the art school, journaling classes at The Clearing. They connect us.” “And there’s a huge social component to taking classes,” Carol Hoehn noted. “It’s how we meet like-minded people.” “The YMCA is a great community that incorporates all ages,” Amy Jacobs said. “Some people struggle just to get there, but then they’re embraced by others and encouraged by that support.” The homegrown culture, environmental sustainability, continuing education, the arts and a sense of community are the elements that make Door County such a unique place for personal wellness. “Take a walk or drive through the parks,” concluded Amy Jacobs. “See something new, take a deep breath, and find your bliss.” — Marise Redmann doorcounty.net
