The Romance

I

magine boarding a steam ship in Chicago bound for Door County. Watch the Chicago skyline fade away as the Goodrich Line’s passenger ship, Carolina, chugs along the western shoreline of Lake Michigan. Seagulls are always visible during the day. Lighthouses hand the boat off to one another at night. Perhaps a little shopping is in order at the ports of call: Racine and Sheboygan. If the captain could keep her on schedule, the white steeples of Ephraim would come into view around noon on a Tuesday, otherwise known as “Boat Day” to the locals. A small crowd would gather on Anderson dock to receive the passengers. Short of immediately reboarding, the minimum stay is one week — the next Boat Day. The first vacationers to Door County, around 1900, arrived by boat. This wasn’t a passing fancy, it was simply a necessity. The majority of the peninsula was densely forested. Visitors arriving via passenger ship, like Carolina, couldn’t venture far from whichever village they disembarked. The roads that today link the towns and villages, circumnavigating the peninsula, simply didn’t exist. The logging industry was doing its best to clear all the lovely orchards and farmland we see today throughout Door County’s interior. Eventually logging trails begat roads. In 1914, the rail lines that dead-ended in Sturgeon Bay began carrying passengers. Buses began delivering these railroad passengers up and down the peninsula. Trains and ships competed directly until the automobile made both industries obsolete by 1940. doorcounty.net

The Marina Despite the decline in large scale vacation boat travel, Door County maintained some of its maritime tradition while also reinventing itself. Of course, Sturgeon Bay kept building ships and passing cargo tonnage through her channel. Baileys Harbor and Washington Island continued commercial fishing. However, the local harbors were no longer the only conduit to the outside world. The new hobby of recreational boating created a need for docks and moorings, thus the modern marina was born. A mix of private and village-run marinas now facilitate the aquatic traffic. Most slips are rented through the season to a single tenant with a handful reserved for transient boaters. The permanent slips are a coveted property, like Green Bay Packer season tickets, the rights rarely relinquished. Quite a hubbub was created in 2017 when an unprecedented 5 slips became available in Fish Creek’s marina at one time. 16

Today, the majority of Door County’s visitors arrive by car. It may be worth considering that the best way to visit most villages is amphibiously. Sturgeon Bay, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, and Baileys Harbor have the core of their commercial downtowns directly attached to their marinas. Boaters can arrive by wind or motor and then easily mingle with landlubbers by foot. The economic impact of boaters cannot be denied as they seek 18


out entertainment, supplies, food, drink, and company. Fittingly, the Bayside Tavern in Fish Creek has two entrances: one facing Highway 42 and the other facing the water. Egg Harbor introduced a bike sharing program last year; more often than not those bikes ended up down at the marina, having served as late night land dinghies. doorcounty.net

The Forecast Every boat launch has a sign urging boaters to help stop the spread of zebra mussels and other invasive species. The signs are effective, and boater awareness is high. However, it might be too late. Door County’s relationship to the water is so entwined that it can only be measured on a geological scale involving glaciers and many millennia. However, in a mere century and a half, man has (mostly inadvertently) disturbed the fragile ecosystem of the Great Lakes and jeopardized our future with these life giving waters. This is the focus of Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Dan Egan’s new book, “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes.” Egan, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, has familial connections to Door County. With a blend of science, storytelling, reporting, and personal essay, Egan conveys that the waters of Lake Michigan disguise the pernicious work of zebra and quagga mussels, clinging to rocks, hulls, docks, propellers, basically anything, while they quietly 20

consume every bit of life in the water. These foreign invaders eat everything except the blue-green algae microcystis caused by agricultural run-off. Lake Michigan is three times clearer than it was in the 1980s due to a substantial amount of the bottom-ofthe-food- chain life removed by this bivalve filtration. The mussels are simply the latest (and probably not the last) invaders to hitch a ride across the Atlantic Ocean in the ballast tanks of freighters from the Black or Caspian Sea, then thrive in the Great Lakes. There were the lampreys in the 1940s, which attached themselves to native fish and sucked the blood out, 22


decimating scores of species. Scientists responded by poisoning them. Just as the lampreys were being phased out (though never completely), the ale wives, competing with perch, grew to schools several miles in length. Anybody who spent time along the lakeshore in the 1960s through 1990s can recall innumerable mounds of alewives washed up onto shore creating a foul stench while taking up valuable beach blanket real estate. Half a billion salmon were introduced to combat the ale wives. This turned out to be fantastic news for sport fishermen who relished in the newest trophy fish. doorcounty.net

23


This honeymoon was short-lived, however, as the pesticide DDT was found to be collecting in salmon flesh, another consequence of agricultural run-off. The relationship of lake to land could not be denied. Nonetheless, Egan concludes that there is some hope. The DDT salmon fiasco led to Wisconsin and Michigan being the first states to ban the pesticide. He asserts that there are pragmatic measures that could be taken, especially when it comes to vessels arriving from the Atlantic Ocean. In the meantime, recreational boaters should be mindful of any invaders aboard their watercrafts. On land, we should remember that anything we spray, dump, or pour on the surface will eventually make its way into the lake. 24

The Celebration There’s no time like the present. It’s not coincidental that Dan Egan’s parents, Annie and Dick Egan, are founding board members of Celebrate Water Door County. This year-long initiative hopes to create awareness of the threats to our waters while inspiring people to act and protect them. The organization purposely resembles the very water it is trying protect, amorphous and free-forming. Individuals and organizations are encouraged to lift the Celebrate Water Door County flag and coordinate events or participate any way one sees fit. The events are too numerous for these pages, but are constantly being updated at celebratewaterdoorcounty.org. In an unofficial celebration of water, cruise ships have recently returned to Door County. After a 15-year void, The Grand Mariner will be docking for two nights this August. Another cruise ship line is looking to add 26

Sturgeon Bay as a port of call in 2019. While it is not a wholesale reinvention of the maritime system, it is a pleasant homage to the past when visitors didn’t have any other way to get here. It would be impossible to visit Door County without appreciating the water at some point. Whether it be a swim, a paddle, 28


Weborg Dock, Gills Rock Photo Š2018 Stephen Wolter

a sail, an excursion, a walk on the beach, or a stunning view, the visitor inevitably finds Lake Michigan or Green Bay. The way we use the water may have evolved over time, but the respect it deserves will never change. The currents run strong, the bottom is cold and deep, and the life it holds is delicate. — Larry Majewski doorcounty.net

How to Get Involved? “Celebrate Water”

H

ow can you help protect the quality of fresh water in the Great Lakes? A new initiative from local nonprofit Healthy Water encourages you to: Celebrate, Educate, Advocate. Healthy Water chairperson Ann Egan explains: “The mission of Healthy Water is to protect our community’s human, environmental, and economic health by guarding against threats to our water. Start by visiting the website for our Celebrate Water Door County program (celebratewaterdoorcounty.org).” Healthy Water is a personal issue for Ann Egan and her husband Dick. Their son Dan authored the acclaimed The D eath & Life of the Great Lakes (W.W. Norton & Co.) which documents Lake Michigan’s history — and the threats to its health — in great detail. Current Celebrate Water activities include gallery exhibitions, musical performances, environmental programs, immersive outdoor experiences and other tools that reveal the important role water plays in our lives. “We’re trying to galvanize people,” said Egan, “The final phase — to advocate — is planned for June 2019 with a Water Summit and will include educators, researchers and journalists who will lay out plans for the future.” What else can you do? Take friends on a tour of Sturgeon Bay harbor (John Purves tugboat at Door County Maritime Museum or ride the Chicago Fireboat at sunset; visit a gallery featuring Celebrate Water-related artwork (Edgewood Orchard Galleries, Miller Art Museum’s “Water Works,” Woodwalk Gallery’s “Mystical Waters”) ; tour the Maritime Museum in

Sturgeon Bay and Death’s Door Museum in Gills Rock; ferry to Rock Island and Washington Island; attend the Lighthouse Festivals in June and October. In other words, Celebrate Water! Then educate and advocate friends and family. Ann Egan was born, raised, and continues to live on a Great Lake. “Celebrate Water,” she says, “is an attempt to help others see the value of this great, but limited resource in order to preserve it for ages to come.” — Casey Martin doorcounty.net

6th Annual

“ Roofing

of the Goats Parade”

I

t’s an only-in-Door-County, magical realism kind of thing... every year, towards the end of the first week of June, real live goats parade down Hwy 42 in Sister Bay towards Al Johnson’s in the annual Roofing of the Goats Parade. This year, the 6th annual parade is scheduled for Saturday, June 9th. Comprised of skittish, short-attention-span goats from Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant, Door County Creamery, Northern Door Pet Clinic, and a few local goat farmers, the event has become a lovably eccentric start to the new tourism season. Starting at Mill Rd. and Hwy 42, the parade moves south 1/4 mile to Al Johnson’s, where a handful of goats are led up to the green sod roof (hence the parade name, “Roofing of the Goats”). Highway 42 is closed to all traffic before and during the parade, from 10 am to 11:15 am (Goat-watchers: don’t bring dogs, goats are notoriously terrified of them.) “Goat drop stickers” are available at Hwy 42 roadside booths for $10 each, a fundraiser for a local food pantry. If a goat poops on your sticker during the parade, you’ll win a nice prize. It all started with Al Johnson’s, which, after a birthday prank between Wink Larson and Al Johnson, famously started putting goats on its roof in 1973. Today, Al’s keeps dozens of goats on its farm, where the goat barn features soothing WPR broadcasts. There are also over 100 milk-producing goats on Door County Creamery’s dairy farm, which both produces a widely-praised chèvre and operates popular farm lunch tours (May-October, seethegoat.com). Goat Parade is followed by Al Johnson’s Annual Goat Fest, located at Stabbur Beer Garden. Goat Fest starts at 12 noon and features live music, kids’ games, beverages, special food dishes and a Swedish Pancake-E ating Contest. — John Nelson doorcounty.net

Wander through the local markets, shops, and galleries to find ethnic foods and art. Home-style cafes, offer Belgian and DC inspired dishes. Plus, there are quaint lodges, campgrounds.

A Revealing Look at Southern Door’s Unique History

T

he largest Belgian settlement in the United States is located in Southern Door County, in Brussels. With some notice, or at local events, you can tour the Namur National Historic District, hear the Walloon language, and taste traditional foods. But most importantly, if you’re interested in exploring this unique local sub- culture, you can visit the Belgian Heritage Center (BHC), open to the public on weekends May-October. Descendants of the Belgian settlers still own much of the property in this region of the Door Peninsula. Joe Alexander, a descendant and also the head of the volunteer group that maintains the BHC, actively invites visitors to learn more about Walloon culture and heritage, “Imagine, it took these brave people 50 days to cross the Atlantic Ocean and they didn’t speak any 74


other language than Walloon, which was so unique it was only passed on orally.” In recent years, the University of Wisconsin has been interviewing elders in the Belgian community, thus finally creating a written record. Within this National Historic District, the Belgian Heritage Center is a former 1894 convent and parochial school that now houses artifacts of Belgian and Catholic history. The BHC reopens for the season on May 4th and is open Friday-Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm through October 28. You can also take a tour of Southern Door’s history, in which you’ll see Belgian residential and commercial architecture and some of the 30-plus roadside chapels that dot the landscape. To arrange a tour, call 920-493-5969 or email: tourinfo@belgianheritagecenter.org. Ask to arrange for your group to sample a traditional Belgian lunch: booyah, trippe (brat made with pork and cooked cabbage), jutt (cooked cabbage with bacon bits and potatoes), and the famed Belgian pie. — Casey Martin

Plum Island Offers a Glimpse of Maritime History

P

lum and Pilot Islands are located in the Death’s Door Passage that separates the northern tip of the Door Peninsula from Washington Island. The islands are part of the Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge and are under the jurisdiction of the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). fws.gov/refuge/green_bay Since 2007, the Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands (FOPPI) has been partnering with the USFWS to stabilize and restore the historic maritime structures found on the islands. A trip to Plum Island allows visitors to experience the area’s pristine natural beauty and unique maritime history. Bald eagles nest here. Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids and the endangered Dwarf Lake Iris grow in hidden pockets of the forest. A spectacular view of the Death’s Door Passage can be savored from the top of the rear range light, while imagining what it was like to have been a lighthouse keeper.

Like A Phoenix, Shipwrecked Arises Renewed

T

he Shipwrecked Brew Pub & Inn fire last August was one of the biggest Door County news stories of 2017. The spectators who gathered to watch firefighters battle the blaze all day had conversation fodder to last them through the winter. News affiliates across the country picked up the story. Nationwide, anyone with ties to Door County was curious about the calamity — and the future of this iconic landmark. Since its inception, the building has operated as an inn. Some guests were infamous (Al Capone), while others of the spectral variety (ghosts) never left! 2017 had marked Shipwrecked’s 20th anniversary of operating as a brewery and restaurant — with statewide beer distribution. On nice days, the restaurant’s patio was packed and buzzed with activity. Through the years, the mix of history, legend, and intrigue maintained Shipwrecked’s status as a truly meaningful Door County destination. 114


With careful consideration to its past, the owners of Shipwrecked have envisioned a new building for a new era — minus the inn. Instead, the focus is on a new experience for restaurant guests. While it may look very similar to its former self on the outside, the interior will have vaulted ceilings and two floors instead of three. All this space will afford more seating and a bigger kitchen, while retaining the original structure’s footprint — and its welcoming charm. The most noticeable improvement is the second floor dining room, which maximizes Shipwrecked’s ideal perch above the Egg Harbor Marina. Guests will enjoy harbor and sunset views with handcrafted beer and tasty burgers. The brewery’s kettles, tanks, and paraphernalia miraculously survived the fire unscathed. Once installed in their new home, brewing capacity will be increased. This means more seasonal beers and one-off experimental batches by the brewmaster. The beers should be flowing from the facility by early summer — about the time Shipwrecked is slated to reopen bigger, better, and perhaps less haunted by ghosts of the past! — Nathan Zuckerman

Fish Boil with a Beautiful Lake View

Fresh whitefish caught daily… from the same waters outside our doors!

Fish boils are Door County’s only indigenous dish, brought to the Peninsula by Scandinavian immigrants. Our Masterboiler slices fresh fish into chunks, then boils it with baby red potatoes and sweet onions. The fish boil kettle is brought to a boil over an open fire… when the fish is cooked to perfection, a small amount of kerosene is poured into the base of the fire. The result? A spectacular burst of flames and the famous boil-over that leaves the food ready to be immediately served at your table inside the restaurant. Fish, potatoes, and onions served with fresh lemons, melted butter, coleslaw, homemade sweet breads and Door County cherry pie. Not crazy about fish? Try our chicken parmesan, bbq ribs or vegetarian options.

Art + Beer at New Liberty Tap Room

W

hile a wide selection of draft beers from around the world is the main attraction, the new Liberty Tap Room (at the Liberty Square complex of shops and restaurants in Egg Harbor) is also becoming known for its artistic interior. Seeking to distinguish the Tap Room from other Peninsula quaffing spots, owners Richard and Pam Wegner hired local artist Brian Pier to paint three murals across its walls. The Wegners asked Brian to portray iconic Peninsula scenes: the red John Purves tugboat next to Door County Maritime Museum; an Ephraim view of E agle Harbor; and sailboats dotting the Egg Harbor public dock. Pier’s unique story began in Kenosha, where he worked as a heavy equipment operator. One Christmas, he gifted friends with an oil painting. “I’m self-taught and had just started painting as a 140


hobby. It was a quaint image of a house on a hill in the springtime. Nothing dramatic, but my friends loved it. That was nine years ago and I just can’t stop painting.” Pier notes that although he is self-taught, he is influenced by the 19th and 20th century masters, and has studied how they dealt with changing light, “the way it plays on landscapes and people,” he said. Pier works daily on original oil paintings and commissions in his gallery at 4633 Market St., across from Main Street Market in Egg Harbor. Next door, Brian’s partner Bonnie Mirkiewicz operates Forever Grateful Resale Boutique. The couple moved to Door County four years ago. In 2016, the Huffington Post named Brian “One of the World’s Best Artists of Human Impression,” and in 2017 he received a jury award during Miller Art Museum’s 42nd Juried Show. You can see more of Brian Pier’s current works at Sister Bay’s Door County Festival of Fine Arts on August 11. — Casey Martin doorcounty.net

Accessories for the Discerning Drinker Do people who occasionally like to imbibe also enjoy the various accessories that accompany this highly popular leisure-time activity? That’s the bet of The Bayside Shop, which the MacDonald family has opened behind its renowned Bayside Tavern in Fish Creek. Filled with an assortment of fun drinking paraphernalia, glasses, cocktail recipe books, and nautically-themed accessories, plus jewelry, scarves, and totes, the mix in the little cabin is both broad and narrow. The initial concept was to feature the Tavern’s branded glassware and clothing (t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies), but quickly expanded to offer a wider variety. Go shopping for a new t-shirt or branded shot glass in the time it takes the bartender inside to pour you a fresh cold one! — Casey Martin 154

Spot Creates a Perfect “ Space ” Downtown Sister Bay has gotten a lot more colorful and fun since Space opened in the spring of 2017. Now going into its second season, Space is filled with not-so-serious yet fabulous gifts for weddings, birthdays, and, well, just because!

We must caution you – a sense of humor is a MUST before entering this distinctive shop. Hilarious greeting cards, comical dish towels, amusing coffee table books, darling pet items, quirky kid’s stuff, unique candles and kitchenware, and everything in-between. If you need a memorable gift that will be sure to make its recipient LOL, Space will not disappoint. Located below its “sister” store, Spot, in downtown Sister Bay, Space resides in a 105-year-old building that owner Jennie Bexell creatively and lovingly renovated throughout the past six years. Much of the building’s unique characteristics have been preserved, including the whitewashed log ceilings and cement flooring that make Space a stand-out space for shopping. — Laurel Ciohon 176

Maxwell’s House Expands...Next Door Maxwell’s House has expanded its store space without moving an inch. When the business next door moved to a new location, owners Shawn and Karen Peterson simply knocked down the dividing wall and expanded their showroom and offerings. The lively home interiors shop is known for astute buying and merchandising, and the added space has allowed a deeper product selection, more color choices, and a new flow to the store. Owner Karen describes the change as both uplifting and refreshing: “Customers will notice more breathing space and a new area where our sales consultants can show samples, catalogs, and options.” Any trends for 2018? “It’s the end of the gray period, people will notice more color options!” maxwellshousedc.com; 920-868-2989. — Casey Martin 228

Connected by Place Eight Disparate Writers

S

omehow the ability to read skipped over my desk in St. Mary’s Catholic School in Luxemburg. A family move and a kind elderly woman brought words to life and started a love of reading that would eventually lead to writing and publishing. I read while we drove to the cottage in Dyckesville, picnicked at Chaudoir’s Dock, shopped in Brussels, visited Potawatomi State Park. For decades I dreamt about finding a writing studio in Northern Door County and when we finally owned our own place I began spending time alone with my laptop and fiction. Door County continues to be the home or muse for writers across the genres. Poets, journalists, naturalists, children’s writers, memoirists, playwrights, singer/songwriters, fiction writers, historians, academics have crafted works well worth reading, hearing, or watching in cottages, hotel rooms, tents and homes from Southern Door to Rock Island. The eight contemporary writers featured offer eight unique insights into Door County. There is a wealth of words from a serious investigation of the state of the Great Lakes to imaginary mice playing in Door County’s lighthouses, beautiful magazine journalism to beautiful lyrics, history of the area’s settlers to high-octane documentaries and freelancing about today, a poet laureate and an award-winning murder mystery writer. Two of our writers are also photographers with professional recognition for that art as well. All of these writers have walked in Lake Michigan and watched at least one sunset over the bay. From scientific subject to magical inspiration or the perfect watery grave, there is little doubt that Door County attracts and nourishes wonderful writing. — Cynthia Kraack doorcounty.net

books • reading • writing poet laureate sharon auberle

Sharon Auberle, Door County’s current Poet Laureate, is a creative source known for her photography and painting as well as poetry. Born in Ohio, she lived in the South, Southwest, Chicago and Flagstaff before moving to Door County in 2008. The late Norb Blei was instrumental in her development as a poet and published her first book, Saturday Nights at the C rystal Ball. C row Ink followed. She has been honored by the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets, and her poems have appeared in numerous publications. Her works include collaborations with three other poets that combine poetry and images. Her plans for promoting poetry in the county include workshops and readings for beginning poets, opportunities for pairing poetry with other art forms and poetry potlucks. Check out her work at sharonauberle.blogspot.com. historian paul burton

Door County homes that frequently host vacationing guests have a book or two by Paul Burton waiting for visitors curious about this region’s history. Ephraim Stories, Door County Stories and Stories from a B elgian Settlement, Ephraim’s Founding Father: The Story of the Rev. A.M. Iverson bring the true voices of Door County’s founders to the page with the fine control of Paul’s devotion to historic preservation. Before retirement, this Kansas City University professor of physiology and cell biology wrote and published 70 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals. That mixture of research strength and writing skill means a page on how Belgian wooden shoes differ from Scandinavian is good reading. His books are available in many local stores. 242


books • reading • writing songwriter katie dahl

One of the best parts of Northern Door’s season is Katie Dahl singing at multiple locations weekly. Door County is her home, her muse, her comfort zone. She is nationally recognized as a folk singer/ songwriter. When the County becomes quiet, she tours. Forty hours in a Prius driven by husband Rich Higden, with his bass, her acoustic guitar, luggage and a toddler son, isn’t the most romantic life, but might sound droll, realistic and incredibly lovely if captured by Katie in song. From Lombardi Avenue to Hometown Tables, she fills a quiet place people protect. Her recordings regularly crack the upper echelons of national folk radio charts. Attend Northern Sky Theater’s Victory Farm and enjoy the book and lyrics co-written with Emilie Coulson. Her four studio albums are available online. chronicler myles dannhausen, jr.

Myles Dannhausen was not the first journalism graduate with dreams of becoming a sportswriter to change paths. Fortunately for Door County, Myles’ change of heart brought him home and to The Peninsula Pulse. A relationship had begun years earlier when Myles and his brother Daniel exchanged pizza from their restaurant for ad space in Dave Elliot’s young publication. Pressing against the Door County Advocate’s long-standing dominance of the market, Myles found himself having to explain the Pulse to people. He began writing a sports column then was paid to write news stories. As the Pulse grew, Myles became the News Editor. After time in Chicago, he returned to his home county and Peninsula Pulse Publishing. He is a writer, editor, producer, photographer and special events coordinator. doorcounty.net

books • r sh eo ap dp in in gg• w r i t i n g journalist dan egan

Dan Egan’s The D eath and Life of the Great Lakes has been popular reading in Door County and as an offering in The Maritime Museum’s Great Lakes/ Great Books Club. The New York Times Book Review credits this Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter with bringing together history, science, reporting and personal experience into a cautiously hopeful narrative. A native of Green Bay, Dan grew to love Lake Michigan by spending summer weekends and vacations on the Door Peninsula. He has covered the Great Lakes issues for 15 years. In a past interview Dan said “I started telling people in a class Great Lake stories and they just became rapt. It was really eye-opening to me, because of what we take for granted here.” Twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Dan’s book remains a best seller in numerous categories. editor heidi hodges

Visitors and residents who read the Door County Advocate know about Heidi Hodges’ life. She’s shared the good times when her sons thought she was pretty cool, the mediocre times when winter crud hung around too long, and the bad times when cancer threatened life. For almost 17 years her column has talked to regular people about a regular life. Now she is editor-in- chief of Door County Magazine. It is a good life. A Wisconsin native, Heidi accepted a photography internship at the Door County Advocate. Her work won awards. She could have gone elsewhere, but she stayed at the paper and in the community she loved. In addition to being a journalist, she is a popular wedding photographer. In Heidi’s own words: “I live in Door County, Wisconsin. I love it here. LOVE it.” 244

She and her husband Joe were elementary teachers in Dubuque and spent summers in Door County where they operated Jacksonport Craft Cottage Gifts until 2015.

Her second book, Baileys Harbor Range Lights Rascal, was published in 2018. The stories are fictitious but include historical facts and photos from the time the lighthouses were in operation. Sue’s digitally altered photos provide illustrations. Her books are available at doorcountypolarbearpress.com and in stores. mystery writer patricia skalka

Patricia Skalka is the author of D eath Stalks Door County, D eath at Gills Rock, and D eath in Cold Water, winner of the Edna Ferber Fiction Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers.

An Excerpt from M.L. Collins’ Out The D oor! Door County, Wisconsin

W

hat else can you say about a state that to most people is defined by its production of cheese and the vicissitudes of a football team? Not unlike other places, Wisconsin is a rich and varied dish of gun advocates, tree huggers, rednecks, socialists, meatheads, lesbian separatist chicken farmers, tourists, fundamentalists, vegan Buddhist bicyclists, and nice people. The not-so-tiny peninsula of Door County, a 70-mile spit of land that sticks out into one of the world’s largest bodies of fresh water, Lake Michigan, is a microcosm of that same Wisconsin, along with a history that mirrors the spectrum of human endeavor in the New World — colonialism, ethnic cleansing, environmental degradation and over-development. Door County has experienced versions of it all, beginning with a French interloper named Jean Nicolet who in 1634 landed his canoe near the present city of Green Bay (he was searching for a route to China, not Lambeau Field) and claimed territory for France that inconveniently belonged to the Winnebago. E arly European immigrants found the land for the most part inhospitable, the glaciated soil rocky and mean, the precipitous limestone cliffs and strong currents at the peninsula’s northern tip no picnic for sailors or fishermen, especially after the French had named it Porte des Morts or Death’s Door. That had made it seem like anything but a tourist destination.

246


Even for those of us who are always ready to claim constancy of love for Door County — such as author M.L. Collins — there are of course moments when its abundant absurdities are truly provoking. In her 2017 novel Out The Door, Collins explores the hilarious flights of fancy released when a Chicagoan tries on part-time Peninsula residency.

For the nature-starved in the modern world, it became a beckoning paradise, a region now recognized as one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the Midwest. Its quixotic beauty attracts almost two million visitors annually. Some are lured by the mesmerizing landscape, others by the kitsch and flotsam peddled to travelers everywhere. For the rest who pass through the Door, it is a refuge from an obscene and chaotic world, a place that feeds the soul and seduces the spirit. Published by Eckhartz Press. Available in Door County at Piggly Wiggly, Base Camp, Door County Bakery (Sister Bay); Main Street Market (Egg Harbor), Fish Creek Bookshop & Gallery. Online: Amazon.com, eckhartzpress.com, and thepartysjustbegun.com. doorcounty.net

Growth Is A Beautiful Thing But It Always Comes with Responsibilities

For decades, the Sister Bay Historical Society has worked to sustain our village's stories, artifacts and archives for generations to come. In fact, we may have been TOO successful — our inventory of artifacts has grown far beyond our ability to properly store and protect them. As a result, we plan to build what we're calling The New Barn, a building that will house our archives and provide the space to store small and large artifacts, make repairs to our antique farm implements and create new exhibits. Because it's a barn — a really big barn — it will also provide a heated multi-use area for meetings and enhanced exhibits.

Those Beautiful Door County Sled Dogs

T

he Discovery Center and Museum north of Ephraim on Hwy 42 is where you’ll meet founders Bonnie & Rick Ulrich-Desotelle, their team of sled dogs and the volunteers who train and care for the beautiful animals. Intending to adopt a Labrador Retriever from the DC Humane Society in 2005, the retired educators instead brought home a Siberian Husky — sparking a determination to learn the art of sledding. The couple next rescued locally-famous lead dog “Beautiful,” who taught the other dogs in his team. As their dedication grew, Rick and Bonnie attended a mushing boot camp in Minnesota and formed a vision to educate others on dog rescue through sledding. Volunteerism became the heart and soul of Door County Sled Dogs, said Bonnie. “We kept finding dogs who needed homes, and volunteers kept coming forth to help.” The winter of 2008-09 brought a contract with Milwaukee Parks to run sled rides on weekends, attracting both kids and adults. Dozens of dogs have now been rescued and situated through the network of volunteers. Twelve dogs reside with Bonnie and Rick, and the remaining 25 now live with volunteers. Several hundred have been ‘re-homed,’ and Bonnie says 99% are perfectly matched. The volunteers are a huge boost, and the organization’s 501(c)3 status provides much of the funding. Young people learn teamwork, leadership skills and training at exhibitions in Milwaukee and Door County, where UlrichDesotelle’s fifth generation farm allows the dogs room to run. A donated log building in Ephraim opened in June of 2016. The summer of 2018 will be an even bigger year, Bonnie noted, with a planned exhibit on “The Real Story of Balko.” — Jude Genereaux For more info, call the Sled Dog Hot Line at 414-967-9677, visit doorcountysleddogs.com, or “like” the group’s Facebook page of the same name. 275 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 286


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 — 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

rtist and craftsman Michael Doerr expresses this sentiment throughout his work, his teaching and his connection to nature. “What excites me is to take raw lumber and turn it into a finished, quality product,” Doerr said. “To take 13 blocks of wood and create a flowing, cohesive chair.” Doerr credits Ferdinand Nimphius, Master Shipwright, with teaching him about flowing curves. “It was boatbuilding where I learned about the flowing lines, and it was Sam Maloof who taught me a distinctive way of assembling a chair.” The past and the future are connected in the flow of life, he believes. “My father’s family had a business in Sturgeon Bay,” Doerr said. “Because of this connection, my wife Bobbi and I bought some property in a quaint part of Southern Door, where we created our home and shop with our daughter Lydia.”

From that studio he created a small line of furniture of chairs, tables and cabinets, and travelled to craft shows showing his furniture line and taking orders. “There is this relationship where I am going to make this item personally,” Doerr said. With the touch of a human hand on an artwork — whether a clay pot, a woven rug or a chair — Doerr says the artist touches the life of the user and advances itself into time. “What we create is a connection to the past and into the future,” Doerr said. “As one ages in one’s craft, we create ‘artifacts.’ And as we leave an object behind, we are reaching through time.” The next adventure for Doerr is learning the art and craft of wood-turning. “I purchased a wood-turning studio and am now taking classes. It’s a new direction that’s very exciting.” Doerr continues to pass on his skills to students through workshops and classes. His work is shown locally at Martinez Gallery in Jacksonport.

AD COURTESY OF ARTIST CONNIE GLOWACKI

Shakespeare’s Plays Come to Life in Magical Björklunden Garden Door Shakespeare’s 2018 summer season features two of William Shakespeare’s best-loved comedies, “Much Ado About Nothing” and “The Comedy of Errors.” From June 28 – August 18, professional actors, directors, designers and musicians from around the country come together to share these classic and timeless plays with audiences in the magical Garden at Björklunden in Baileys Harbor. You’ll be up close and personal to the action while the productions unfold before your eyes. As dusk falls over the course of the evening, you may take on the role of a confidante or a voyeur. By the end of the evening, when the stars are out and the actors take their final bow, you’ll feel as though you have come to know this talented ensemble of players. Such is the magic of live theatre when performed in an outdoor setting so enchanting that many in attendance come back year after year, some since Door Shakespeare’s inception in 1995 ! Door Shakespeare has a series of add-on events throughout the calendar year. For the complete summer season performance schedule [Mon.–Sat.] and additional info, please visit doorshakespeare.com, or call 920-839-1500.

A ‘Radically Appealing’ Classical Music Experience The Midsummer’s Music 2018 summer season consists of nine high-impact, energetic, and “radically appealing” classical music programs that will be presented in 37 concerts at venues across Door County. One of Midsummer’s greatest strengths is the tradition of presenting pieces by well-known composers alongside others who are less familiar, but all of whom provide the basis for an unforgettable and enjoyable experience The nature of the small venues means you can sit close to the worldclass musicians and watch as they communicate by eye contact, all while reveling in the excellent artistic quality of some of the music world’s best. Afterwards, mingle with a glass of wine during the post- concert reception with the musicians. The mixture of instruments unites innovative themes, colorful compositions and interesting arrangements that are varied according to the specific venue. Midsummer’s Music presents additional off-season concerts, too. See complete schedule at midsummersmusic.com, or call 920-854-7088.

BOX OFFICE: 920.854.6117 NORTHERNSKYTHEATER.COM

Northern Sky Does It Again When it comes to regional theater companies, Northern Sky is like no other. You might think their most unique feature is performing their summer season in a state park, beneath red pine trees and the night sky (6/13-8/25). But that’s not the most unusual thing about this popular destination. The company’s mission is to produce new musicals year after year, tailored for multi-generation audiences at prices that encourage the whole family to attend. As a result, the company has developed over 50 new shows and will add two more this season. One show is a modern-day “moosical” comedy, Dairy Heirs. The other is an inspiring 1930s-era musical, Boxcar. Plus, there’s a singalong version of the beloved Lumberjacks in Love. Marketing Director Ann Birnschien said Lumberjacks will feature a pre-show costume contest — lyrics will be available for the entire audience to join in. This fall, Northern Sky moves indoors to the Door Community Auditorium with Muskie Love. Due to growing fall ticket demand, the schedule (8/31-10/20) has already been extended! doorcounty.net

Rogue Theater: “Beer For Breakfast,” Anyone? Rogue Theater is celebrating its 6th season. An award-winning community theater, the group is a testament to the county’s acting talent — over 200 performers have been on the Rogue’s stage! The troupe first began with dinner theater productions, but over the past three years has ably grown into an intimate theater setting at the Jaycee Clubhouse in Sturgeon Bay, located at 340 Jaycee Court. Headlining shows this season include “Beer for Breakfast” in May and June. Author Sean Grennan will be in attendance as a guys’ weekend is invaded by an unlikely woman. For July, it’s Paul Sills’ Tony Award-winning “Story Theater,” a collection based on Grimms Fairy Tales for all ages. In August the group is reprising their smash hit “The Dixie Swim Club,” which, after a successful run last fall, has received continuous requests for its return. The comedy reveals the changing lives of lifelong friends, told over decades, and includes family issues, child rearing debacles, and facelifts!

Lodge Activity Board Daily at 7:50 & 11:50 a.m. Where to go. What to do. Who to see.

10 Big Years of World Class Rock “Has it been ten years already?” quipped Mike Mesic, station owner and program director at fm 106.9 the Lodge. “Some days it seems much longer than that, and others, like we just signed on.” The process to create the dial position with the FCC started in 1999. It was April 26th of 2008 when WLGE powered up both the tower in Baileys Harbor and studio (the blue shoebox) in Ephraim. It soon became Door County’s go-to station to discover new music, reminiscence with singer-songwriters and enjoy the local characters of the community. “Before I became a part of the station, I remember tuning in and hearing only construction noises, part of the ‘building of the station’ before they started playing music,” said Jaime Forest, VP. “I’ve been a fan ever since.” Everyone that is or was part of the Lodge team has a similar story on how they discovered the station, and continue to be a part of the Lodge listeners or “Lodgevertisers.” “The Lodge is a more than what I put on air,” said Mesic. “It’s a companion and a feeling that connects us to Door County, which is why we still say, the soundtrack to the Door County lifestyle.” You can take the Lodge with you where ever you go with their free online audio stream at fm1069theLodge.com. doorcounty.net

Wellness in Door County: A State of Mind and Place

I

must admit...there really IS something special about Door County. Born and raised here, I couldn’t wait to leave as a young adult, and thus quickly moved to New York City. Through my travels, as I compared new locales to my home, I honestly never found anything better and so returned to raise my family. As I reminisce about my decades of life on this Peninsula and how I’ve remained healthy, there are three things that really stand out: the community, the opportunities and the natural environment.

326


Having grown up on a Montmorency cherry orchard in Fish Creek, my immediate environment included stepping outside the door and eating ripe red cherries right off the tree. Most of us were then farm families and “organic farm-fresh� eggs were simply the norm. We jumped off the town dock and swam at the beach. My first 10-speed bicycle was purchased at the house of a family friend who also sold us homemade granola. Our friends and neighbors were a massage therapist, a chiropractor, a yoga instructor and many musicians and artists. We learned by supporting each other in this tight-knit community. I studied dance at Peninsula Dance and took art classes at Peninsula School of Art. I enjoyed concerts at Peninsula Music Festival and Birch Creek. I climbed every park tower, slid down Hill 17, ice skated at the Fish Creek Beach and rode the waves at Whitefish Dunes State Park. The only thing that has changed significantly since my youth is that there is seemingly more of everything that makes Door County such a great place. Now, in my 50s, I realize my luck in being a product of this wonderful environment. As current generations advance in age, I truly hope to be able to pass on my love of the arts and healing through the extensive opportunities around us (Door County has over 300 nonprofits, among other vehicles for expression) and the compelling friendships, all of this enveloped in these beautiful, awe-inspiring surroundings. — Marise Redmann doorcounty.net
