i my name is Katja and I am 10 years old. Welcome to Door County! As you all know, there has been a lot going on because of this whole Covid-19 outbreak. So I have been home since March 17, 2020. And I am writing this from home in Sister Bay after I finished my online school. A lot has changed, like the person who runs this magazine. He is my grandpa but now I barely get to see him. But now that it is summer I will be outside and running and having lots of fun. And I hope you will be having as much fun as I will now that you are in Death’s Door. We have much to offer. We have mini-golf, festivals, the fair, and much more. This is how we are going to rise from the dead and do it. So GO! Have some Fun! 2

Silent Sports in Door County: Propel yourself into Nature A r ticl e b y M aris e R e dm a n n

I

t’s so quiet I can hear my heart beat. I haven’t been this alone in ages. I paddle gently so as not to disturb the peace. I slip through the bulrushes, feeling them standing rigidly, protesting my entry. I can hear the frogs chirping in the distance but as I approach they stop. When looking into the water I see the earth’s surface, it’s undulating ripples of sand carved out by waves gone before me. I look up and see a pileated woodpecker enjoying a morsel from a holed cedar. I am reminded of my soul and all the goodness that surrounds me in life. Whether you are a beginning kayaker, taking a cave tour for the first time, or a seasoned paddler here for the paddling symposium, Door County has so much to offer the adventurous spirit, the competitive sports enthusiast, the conservationist, the winter lover, the wanderer, the game-player. Venturing beyond the traditional boundaries of silent sports as defined by the late Greg Marr, who described it as “those activities powered by human propulsion—biking, kayaking, swimming, skiing, climbing, running—and leave minimal or no adverse impact on the environment behind them.” My story is expanded silent sports. “Silent sports is a healthy lifestyle that offers camaraderie,” said Deb Neuville, Door County Silent Sports Alliance board member. “Our whole family gets involved and everyone feels better when they’re outside in nature.” Silent does not mean that it is done only in seclusion. Many groups are formed to share the love of a sport, offer support, and have a gang to hang out 12

with. “We offer group rides for biking three nights a week,” said Neuville. “People will bring food and snacks and hang out after the ride. Everybody’s welcome to join in.” For those with an adventurous spirit, seeking to express their love for the outdoors, there are a number of opportunities within this luscious landscape. Bicycling is of course readily available. There are off-road paths in Peninsula State Park, Potawatomi, Newport, the Ahnapee Trail, and many quiet back roads to explore. There are three group century bicycle tours. But you don’t have to do the entire 100 miles. Shorter courses are offered, too, that are family friendly, noncompetitive events. For the paddling community there are 30+ boat launches all over the county. Those just starting out can rent at several outfitters. Or choose a kayaking tour, where seasoned guides take you to amazing places. For complete immersion 15


in the kayak lifestyle, you can attend the Rutabaga Sea Kayak Symposium for an entire weekend of classes and events. For those more interested in stand up paddle (SUP) boarding, bring your own board and explore 52 beaches, some more secluded than others. Or rent from Egg Harbor Beach and Whitefish Dunes. There are also yoga SUP classes available for a different kind of adventure. 16

For the extreme boarder, the bay in Baileys Harbor, including Anclam Beach, is the place for kite surfing and wing-surfing. “Wing-surfing is a hand-held wing that you can use with a foil board,” Chris Miller, kite surfing enthusiast, said. “Locally, it’s the new fast-growing experience.” Miller said there is a community of kite surfers that are always welcoming, but as yet there is no school or rentals. “And it does take training, strength and skill to doorcounty.net

be safe out on the water,” Miller added. Sailing Door County’s 300 miles of shoreline was necessary transportation for our Indian and pioneer forbears, but it’s now a very popular recreation. You can rent and charter a sailboat and other craft at multiple locations throughout the county, especially in Sturgeon Bay and Ephraim. Scuba diving the local shipwrecks has been a public sport for decades and was even featured in the National Geographic article that put the county on the world tourism map in March 1969 (“A Kingdom So Delicious”). Even surfing has its adherents, with a dedicated contingent that surfs the waves out of Baileys Harbor on the Lake Michigan side of the Peninsula. For competitive sports enthusiasts, Door County today boasts a half-marathon, a triathalon/half ironman, Fall 50 run and 11 other, smaller competitions. With some truly challenging silent sport competitions, Door County is also becoming a destination for serious athletes. “We bring in thousands of people each 18

year,” said Brian Fitzgerald, co-owner of Peninsula Pacers, a local company that organizes events. “We’ve found that the economic benefits attract people to the shoulder seasons. It allows us to showcase what we have.” What we have are five beautiful state parks, quiet secondary roads, plus hotels, restaurants and quaintness. “We have a perfect infrastructure,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve raced all over the world and The Door County Half Marathon is one of my favorites,” Jenn Hadfield, Runner’s World, said. “It’s very well organized, it’s in the heart of beautiful and 20


peaceful Door County, and the course rolls through some of the most picturesque half marathon miles in the world.” There is a social component to these events too. Many running clubs will enter together and run in groups. “There is a strong network in running clubs,” Fitzgerald said. “They are creating a bond, not wanting to let teammates down. Most are going for the experience, their personal best. It’s about completing the race and being a part of it.” For the quieter, less competitive soul, the conservationist, there are many more attractions. The Door peninsula and its 21

surrounding islands boast five state parks, 19 county parks, dozens of local parks and four dog parks. From Forestville to Rock Island there are innumerable opportunities to commune with nature while hiking, cross- country skiing, snowshoeing, birding, hunting and fishing. The Land Trust is a nonprofit organization that works to preserve, maintain and enhance lands that contribute significantly to the scenic beauty, open space and ecological integrity of Door County. With a strong community commitment and partnership with the Nature Conservancy, the Ridges Sanctuary, Crossroads at Big Creek and The Clearing Folk School, the Door County Land Trust has protected more than 8,000 acres.

“We have 14 featured nature preserves with trails and parking areas that are great for outdoor silent sports enthusiasts,” Terrie Cooper, Community Conservation Director, said. “Look to the Land Trust hiking map for best trails for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, bird-watching and other no-impact sports.” If learning is more your style you can participate in yearround guided programs. You can also take an active interest in supporting conservation efforts. “We continue to create new nature preserves in the county and encourage folks to become supporters of the Land Trust through an annual membership,” Cooper said. “They receive breaking news about local conservation and invitations to a host of events that support our work and connect people with our protected lands.” In addition to the Land Trust properties, you must visit the Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor and Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay for doorcounty.net

also sports the first lighthouse built by the U.S. government on Lake Michigan (1846), Pottawatomi. The ferry dock on this unbelievably unique and beautiful island getaway features a hand-built stone boathouse and other stone buildings from a century ago. For winter adventurers, a growing audience among the Peninsula’s visitors, there is the Door County Pond Hockey Tournament, and Sister Bay has a rousing broomball league and skating rink, brightly lit at night and with an outdoor fire pit to quickly warm up. The five state parks feature cross- country skiing, snowshoeing, and candlelight ski evenings on specific dates. If thrill with no skill is what you’re looking for, sledding at Hill 17 in Peninsula State Park is popular with locals and visitors alike. When the waters of Green Bay are reliably iced over, some adventurers turn to kite skiing or skating, using the often powerful wind to propel doorcounty.net

them over the snow. Ice fishing abounds on Green Bay, with a number of experienced local guides to guarantee a good catch. Fat tire biking has been a growing sport for years, for which snowmobile trails, closed park roads, and lake ice are all open to biking. Finally, love a good game? Door County is home to 12 golf courses, four mini golf courses, seven public tennis courts, outdoor pickleball at the Northern Door YMCA, indoor pickleball at the Northern Door and Sturgeon Bay YMCA locations, and three bowling alleys.

This classic DC village sits on the bay. Legend says its unusual name may be from a friendly egg battle between early fur traders as they raced to shore — or from a nest of duck eggs found by the county’s first settler. Go swimming! Historic buildings, such as the old town hall, drug store, and feed mill are now home to great shops — home decor, clothing and jewelry boutiques, souvenirs, confectioneries, olive oils, galleries and books. There’s also a health food store and gourmet grocery store.

This pretty little hamlet is reminiscent of old DC. Wide, tree-lined streets without sidewalks, an oldfashioned general store, clapboard buildings, and neighborly folks who ride bikes around town add to its timeless quaintness. Go for a stroll! Imaginative potters and artisans create items 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.

BINKHAVEN: D espite Amazing Architecture and D esign, Still Solidly Under the Radar

E

ven for the many people who have lived and traveled within Door County for decades, the name “Binkhaven” may not quite register. That will likely end soon, since this once very private Ephraim estate is about to go public. A 1950s dream mission of Dean and Marilynn (“Bink”) Madden, Binkhaven was envisioned when Dean became deeply interested in his wife’s Norwegian heritage and travels to Norway. Re- creating a spot of their own to reflect that heritage required a landscape similar to Scandinavian fjord country, eventually leading them to purchase land in Door County. 54

Bink’s brother, architect Russell Amdal, designed the original cottage based on Norwegian peasant design; the project soon engaged Sigmund Aarseth, master of the art of rosemaling. The intricate details used for the house, furnishings and décor continued well beyond completion of the main house in 1962, expanding until the estate contained numerous Stabburs, farm buildings and a treasure trove of artifacts. Bedrooms, bunks, ceilings, bathrooms, staircases – every nook and cranny of Binkhaven is copiously decorated in Aarseth’s distinctive, world-renowned rosemaling.

doorcounty.net

55


Interest in Scandinavian design expanded in the 1980s, and the estate gained national attention by being featured in the July 1984 issue of House Beautiful Magazine. The property also served as a site for rosemaling classes in 2003.

56


In 2010, both Dean Madden and Sigmund Aarseth were honored by the King of Norway, awarding them the St. Olav medal for “Outstanding service in strengthening the bond between expatriate Norwegians and their home country.”

October 2018 brought the sale of the estate to Elliot Taillon, whose goal is to restore and preserve Binkhaven with as little change as possible. Binkhaven will remain part of Door County’s Scandinavian heritage, he said, offered to the public as lodging and respite. As engaging an attraction as Binkhaven promises to be, Mr. Taillon will occasionally offer guided tours of the property’s buildings in the summer. To assure the privacy of guests, interested parties are asked to contact www.binkhaven.com to make reservations. — Jude Genereaux

White Gull Inn Celebrates its 125th Anniversary 60


L

oyal guests and visitors returning to Door County expect to find two things each year: the assurance that it never changes, and the joy of new discovery. Blending those expectations has been a goal well met at the White Gull Inn, poised to celebrate its 125th year in Fish Creek. Under the stewardship of the Coulson family, the Gull was originally built in the 1890s as part of Welckers Resort by German-born Dr. Herman Welcker. Initially dubbed the “Henriette Inn,” it was part of an ambitious project created to reflect a European health spa. Welcker’s vision included new cottages around the Inn, and also a casino, as it became a thriving destination. The resort later split into separate establishments. Andy Redmann of Madison purchased the Inn in 1959. Changes were made to the dining room décor and menu, notably adding the popular Fish Boil (possibly the first commercial fish boil in Door County!). Andy and Jan Coulson purchased the Inn in 1972. In 2018, daughter Meredith and her husband Chris Kanter continued the family’s involvement by buying it from the previous generation. Raised within the warm ambience of the White Gull, Meredith’s commitment to maintain its allure equals her wish to continue the feeling of community found among both staff and visitors. “There is a feeling of family returning, when our guests arrive each year,” Meredith said recently. “Our visitors count on a consistent experience, so revamping to maintain modern comfort, yet maintaining tradition, can be a delicate balance.” What’s on tap for this 125th Anniversary summer? Meredith notes a focus on getting past the effects on tourism from the coronavirus crisis, a possible take-out food menu, new ideas for sandwiches, and continued emphasis on local produce. “Partnering with Waseda Farms resulted in our very popular tacos — we want to continue that involvement. Being creative has always been part of the White Gull, and our125th Anniversary will honor that as we offer consistent experiences.” — Jude Genereaux 61


This authentic fishing village lies at the northernmost tip of the peninsula — known as the ‘top of the thumb.’ Island ferries, weathered fishing sheds, and an old fishing boat that sits on dry land reflect its historic maritime heritage. Go fishing! A fine restaurant with panoramic views, a few souvenir shops, and cottages occupy old buildings along the village’s only street and waterfront. Scandinavian imports, nautical items, jewelry, locally made jams, jellies, and pies can be found here. Watch the incredible

For its 80th Anniversary, Ferry Line launches new “Madonna”

T

his year marks the 80th anniversary of the Island transportation company, founded in 1940 when Carl and Arni Richter, father and son, purchased assets of the Jepson ferry line. William Jepson’s two wooden-hulled vessels, NORTH SHORE and WELCOME, continued their service under the new company. 78


2020 also marks a new ferry addition to the Ferry Line fleet. Like the other ferries in service, the new MADONNA was designed and constructed in Door County. The new ferry, like the ARNI J. RICHTER (built 2003), will have winter ice capabilities, with heavy framing and plating, substantial diesel power, and stainless, ice-class propellers. At 140 ft. x 40 ft. x 10 ft., the ferry becomes the largest in service between Washington Island and Northport Pier, with a capacity for 28 automobiles and 150 passengers.

doorcounty.net

79


To date, each Washington Island Ferry Line vessel has been a local shipyard product. The quality of work found at the Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding yard in Sturgeon Bay was once again a primary consideration for choosing the local shipyard and its skilled workforce. Seacraft Design, the naval architecture firm in Sturgeon Bay, provided design concepts and construction drawings. The MADONNA’s steel plating was first cut in August 2019, and by September its framing and hull plating were underway inside Bay Shipbuilding’s largest fabrication building. By January, the two hull sections were completed, turned upright and joined together. Superstructure was added, along with mechanical equipment. The MADONNA’s painting, piping, wiring and fitting-out continued into spring, followed by sea trials, Coast Guard certification and owner acceptance. 80


The new ferry name is a departure from the names of the Ferry Line’s other ferries. MADONNA is a unique, feminine name, but it also comes with historical and cultural ties to an Island schooner of the same name, owned and sailed by Norwegian immigrant Ole Christiansen. Christiansen transported Island lumber products to ports along the Lake Michigan shoreline like Milwaukee. In 1871, the Aylward shipyard of Milwaukee was the MADONNA’s builder, and Christiansen became the schooner’s second owner in late 1894. The last year Christiansen sailed the MADONNA was 1914, after which she was abandoned in the shallow mud of Detroit Harbor. The new MADONNA will contribute to regular and dependable ferry service for Island residents and travelers.

The business center for the Southern Door area of the Door Peninsula is rich with a life that most visitors never experience. Agriculturally driven, but just as naturally beautiful as the county’s northern region, it offers a quiet peace, and access to outdoor adventure, while also providing a gateway to a unique, surprisingly unchanged Belgian heritage. What looks like a simple country crossroads is actually also the home to a renowned potter, the Write On, Door County arts organization (mission: everyone has a story to tell!), a chiropractor, a Lutheran church, and, as of this writing, an Italian restaurant. Initial appearances can be deceiving in Door County, so go ahead, slow down and explore… Featuring easy land and water access to Mink River Basin, a watershed and flowage with excellent fishing, and a respectedyet-hidden lodging facility/ restaurant/bakery/fish boil site called (what else?) Rowleys Bay Resort, it’s hard to exaggerate the beauty of the view that spills out from the resort shoreline towards the Basin and out to greater Lake Michigan. 82


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 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 mo st u n iq ue 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 a Walk on the Wine Side

W

hen people think about wineries and vineyards, they usually think of California, France, or Italy. Many visitors to Door County are surprised to hear we have a winery on the peninsula...and even more surprised to hear we have eight. These eight wineries comprise the Door County Wine Trail, an association focused on bringing awareness and support to the Door County wine industry, thereby supporting local industry, agriculture, tourism, and education. The peninsula wineries include the Door Peninsula Winery, Harbor Ridge Winery, Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery, Red Oak Winery, Simon Creek Vineyard, Stone’s Throw and Von Stiehl Winery. Visitors to Door County are encouraged to visit each stop on the “Wine Trail,” and in doing so, sample some of their unique wines, explore their often-breathtaking vineyards, and learn more about what makes every winery unique. Some of the wineries have their own vineyards and orchards, some buy from local orchards and suppliers, and some do a combination thereof. Visitors will find delicious fruit wines, especially cherry and apple, with many of the wineries producing estate-grown grape wines. With such different wine selections and ambiance, each stop on the “Wine Trail” feels like a completely different experience. Beginners to wine tasting will find their visit welcoming and educational, and even the most cultivated palates are sure to find new, unique wines they will love. Those exploring the “Wine Trail” will also find cuisine created by chefs that feature locally grown produce and may even find live music featured throughout the day. E ach summer, the Door County Wine Trail holds the Door County Wine Festival, where you can sample all of the wines in one place. Tasting times and tours vary, so it’s best to contact each winery in advance. A “Wine Trail” map can be found at the group’s informative website: www.doorcountywinetrail.com — Kate Rispens

Dick Purinton’s new journal delivers verities of island life

192

Photo ©2020 Christian McWhinney


books • reading • writing

R

etired ferry captain and CEO of the Washington Island Ferry Line, Richard ‘Dick’ Purinton has published his second intimate look at life on Washington Island. In Words on Water II, Purinton describes key factors for successfully living on an island: “When we...travel, it’s essential that we use every minute of time away, time that’s ultimately dictated by the ferry schedule and our ability to return home.” This sums up what drives some people to choose a happy island existence. Purinton shares the idyllic and the rugged factors of making this place a long-term home— a balancing act that centers on the quality of one’s life and what we want from it. He contrasts beauty of place with challenges: store closings that limit access to heating oil and lumber, and weather that impact ferry runs. His profiles of family and neighbors, and the activities that enhance their days, provide an uplifting view to those not privy to living at a slower pace. Washington Island families share bonds that are more intense due to the realities of island life. Cooperation and the kindness of neighbors become critical to living. Purinton’s journal is interwoven with snapshots of these experiences, as well as his own memories of travel and some personal history – from a trek to the Antarctic with his son Thor, to an historic preservation effort resulting in the construction of the local Stavkirke, a reproduction of an ancient Norwegian church. Purinton’s memories of ice fishing, especially when he and friend Tom Wilson fell through the ice, are gripping in the extreme. Purinton recounts his decades of “ferry life” filled with daily weather negotiations and challenging decisions — hair-raising stories for the less hardy and more indecisive. Purinton’s new book delivers a steady reverence towards the powerful pull that drives some of us to choose a different way of living than modern life usually affords. — Jude Genereaux doorcounty.net

Pets In Memoriam

W

e’ve all been hearing the same thing: the current coronavirus crisis has been accompanied by a huge surge in pet adoptions. But is it any wonder why? Many people in the U.S. live alone, without partners, and often without family nearby. They have their jobs and some hobbies. But without those distracting jobs, and with their friends presently quarantined...many people are also a little lonely. That’s the vacuum filled by a loving pet, of course. Those long quarantine hours, spent alone without job or friends or much to do, are suddenly very...occupied. When this crisis is over, there will still be pets who need loving owners. If you’re not doing so already, you should think about becoming one. And when you go on vacation to Door County, you might even bring your pet with you, of course. For all of the above reasons and more, Door County loves animals. While you’re here, go on a hike at one of our many parks (with a leash, please), or at a dog park, and see how quickly you make new friends as you go. And as a new pet owner, remember to support the Wisconsin Humane Society. They’re doing the heavy lifting, 365 days a year, so we can all have a bit of love in our lives, no matter who we are. — John Nelson doorcounty.net

O

n a gloriously warm day in May 2018, my wife Colleen, and I leisurely strolled through a one man art exhibition at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay that featured the work of impressionist painter Lee Radtke. I had admired Radtke’s modern take on the 19th century representational art movement for some time. His mastery of seamlessly blending the dichotomy of soft, glowing light against a backdrop of harsh industrial grit was appealing. Never was this more superbly defined than in Lee’s unique paintings of Fincantieri Bay Shipyard during winter lay-up. While studying one intricate piece, a voice chirped behind me: “That’s the Tregurtha. The Paul Tregurtha, largest ship on the Great Lakes. You see here?” An index finger darted close, past my temple. “Yes, I know. I love it,” I replied, a bit perturbed by his gesture. I turned around and immediately recognized Lee Radtke, a warm smile washing over his cherubic face. Behind oversized wire-rimmed frames his eyes danced across the painting as if he had just seen it for the first time. He was shorter than I had imagined, and distinguished looking. We exchanged introductions and pleasantries. Like long-lost friends we spoke about art, music, and ore boats for over an hour. I bought a shipyard painting, the first of many of his works. A week later, Lee called to chat. It was again a bout of mutual admiration. The phone calls became a weekly thing. On his many visits to Door County, Lee always made time to stop by. He eventually would stay with us in Clay Banks whenever he came north for business or painting. What developed over the next two years, until his tragic death in an auto accident this past December 23, was a friendship that outpaced any I’d experienced. Lee would bemoan the fact that we had not met earlier, since we had so much in common, knew many of the same people, socialized in many of the same 230


circles, and lived for years within a few miles of each other, before Colleen and I settled into Door County retirement. Over some 60 years we never once crossed paths. It was as if we were making up for lost time. Although Lee had no formal art training, he had taken the most difficult path for a beginning artist, as a plein air painter. He learned to paint quickly, capturing the essence of scenes by creating an impression of what he saw. Lee’s compositions are visually elusive. Avoiding realism, what appears to be very detailed is in fact a few colorful and intuitively placed brush strokes. His goal was to not interfere with the viewer’s imagination. Many of Lee’s works were selected in juried exhibits, including two prestigious national organizations, the Oil Painters of America (OPA) and American Impressionist Society (API). He attained the rarified status of Photo ©2020 Kevin O’Donnell becoming an elected signature member of the latter. 2020 was going to be Lee’s break-out year. He was hitting his artistic stride, the recipient of growing respect, recognition and consignments. He said it took him 81 years to become an overnight success. Lee never made friends in passing. He made friends for life, a diverse collection of people who were as loyal to him as he was to them: painters, fishing and army buddies, architects, businessmen, childhood friends from the Chicago of his youth…astonishing, since he had been gone from the city since the early 1970s. They all loved Lee for his honesty, humility, kindness. What unified them was his art, vivid reminders of his talent, love of family, loyalty to friends. — by Kevin O’Donnell doorcounty.net

DCA’s ‘Best Line-up Ever’ Reschedules for 2021 “Our best line-up ever,” Executive Director Cari Lewis recently said of the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) 2020-21 season calendar. Featuring performances by the old-time string band Old Crow Medicine Show, jazz icon Chick Corea, comedian Paula Poundstone, and reggae legends The Wailers, the 2020-21 season is rich and eclectic, full of beloved repeat DCA performers like bluesman Keb’ Mo’ and DCA newcomers like country music great Tanya Tucker. It’s also true, of course, that the 2020 season is nothing like what Lewis expected it to be. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of DCA’s summer 2020 performances have been rescheduled for 2021, and Lewis and her staff have revamped the fall and winter seating chart to accommodate social distancing recommendations. DCA is exploring the possibility of presenting a series of outdoor concerts featuring local and regional talent this summer. In the fall, Lewis and the rest of Tanya Tucker the team at DCA hope they’ll be back to sharing music at the state-of-the-art facility, starting Sept. 12 with country music torchbearer Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives. doorcounty.net

A Message from Steve Ellmann of Fishstock “I had my tech crew up here this past weekend to do our annual maintenance on all of our gear. When we were checking out the equipment at Fishstock, we had the system running and it almost brought me to tears thinking about all of the wonderful people that come to the shows and hear great music and go home feeling good about the experience. I also thought how terrible it would be if this venue was the cause for getting even one of those great people sick. I was very excited about our lineup for this year and am happy to announce that all of the artists are coming back for the 2021 season.

Peninsula Players: A Brief Intermission DC’s professional theatrical treasure has presented Broadway-quality comedies, dramas and musicals for 85 seasons in a captivating setting. Generations of local and visiting playgoers have made Peninsula Players Theatre a “must-see.” Peninsula Players’ renowned artistic company provides a truly unforgettable theatrical experience. The stellar artistic quality enthralls, the all-weather pavilion charms and ‘the theatre-in-agarden’s’ picturesque shoreline location enchants. Over the decades, the not-for-profit professional theatre troupe has presented more than 500 staged works and has grown from a theater under the stars, to under a tented-canopy to a fully enclosable 621-seat audience pavilion. In consideration of the ongoing global pandemic, Peninsula Players has cancelled its summer shows and closed until its planned re-opening in September. At the time of this printing, Peninsula Players intends to produce Richard Dresser’s “Rounding Third,” a delightful comedy about two odd-couple little league coaches from September 9 to October 18. During this brief intermission, the theatre looks forward to the time it can welcome visitors back to its cedar forest canopy on the shores of Green Bay. doorcounty.net

Rogue Theater – Part of Theater Fabric in DC 2020 marks Rogue Theater’s 8th season. This Door County treasure is a testament to the talent that abounds here through years of fund raising, ticket sales, generous donations, and community support. This October, Rogue Theater will move into a permanent space in Sturgeon Bay where they’ll continue delighting audiences with fun, laughter, and drama in their high-quality and affordable shows. Headline shows this season include Zoo Story and Ages of the Moon in June. Zoo Story explores themes of isolation, loneliness, and miscommunication as two men meet and converse in Central Park. Ages of the Moon re-unites two friends who reflect and bicker until fifty years of love, friendship and rivalry are put to the test. Late July into August, the stage is set for A Bad Year for Tomatoes, in which Myra escapes the pressures and demands of her acting career to write her autobiography, but nosy neighbors intervene. Local writer Stanley Eisenhammer brings laughs and murder to Fish Creek this September with Murder on Cottage Row. Watch for details about Rogue Theater’s New Home opening this fall with On Golden Pond. Rogue Theater tickets are $15. Performances are at 7:30 (Thurs., Fri., Sat.) and 2pm (Sun).

Radio: ‘Comfort Food’ from Door County From travel concerns among Americans to more people choosing to work from home, it’s no surprise media consumption in the home has increased. Yet amid the various options including podcasts, streaming platforms and connected TVs, Nielsen found that 83% of consumers are listening to more radio. FM 106.9 The Lodge has noticed the increase locally too. For 12 years, the Lodge has been the soundtrack to the Door County experience for locals and visitors alike, providing a unique mix of music and relevant community information. Their audio stream, accessed at fm1069thelodge.com, has seen a 50-60% increase since last year. Those listening digitally are keeping connected to the peninsula, and finding comfort with the memories and nostalgia radio brings them as they ‘feel’ like they’re in Door County again. If you remember visiting Thumb Fun, Aqualand, or spending time at the roller rink – The Lodge’s sister station, Rewind 97.7, might be for you! Seeing similar interest out of the area, the station’s deep pop-rock favorites and up-tempo entertainment is sought out. Stream online at www.Rewind977.com or ask Alexa to tune in WQDC.

Success: Is it Attainable?

260


A

s humans we are driven to want success. With all the striving and wanting, are we going to know when we’ve arrived? And do we find satisfaction when we get there? Finding success is not always easy. For some there are blocks to overcome. According to Carrie Green, author of She Means Business, “Fear, doubt, worry, bad decisions, negative thoughts and confusion can be self-defeating.” She says one needs “to program your mind for what you want to be, do and have. Think thoughts that empower you.” For Scott Geller, Director of the Center for Applied Behavior Systems, Virginia Tech, feeling empowered is a step to self-motivation. “Ask yourself, can you do it, will it work and is it worth it? If you feel competent, have a choice and social support, you can have the power of self-motivation.” It’s all in how you look at it. Do you see the task as an opportunity or a requirement? This is the difference between success-seeking vs. failure avoidance. Once we get a handle on the thought process, we are driven by basic human needs, including physiological, safety, affection, esteem and self-actualization, according to A.H. Maslow in A Theory of Human Motivation. “We are motivated by the desire to achieve or maintain these basic needs, thus, man is a perpetually wanting animal.” However, once satisfied, the desire is gone and other needs emerge, making the attainment of success short-lived. If it’s not about gaining an end goal, perhaps success is the way we run our lives. The Dalai Lama’s ten rules for success include helping others, not caring what others say, following inner values, being calm when irritated, having unbiased compassion, being determined, meditating, keeping things in perspective, developing friendships and sharing funny stories. As Dalai Lama said, “Success is relative. All human life is some part failure, some part achievement.” Perhaps the satisfaction is in the process and not the final product, and success is simply a life well-lived. — Marise Redmann doorcounty.net

Northern Haus Expands Wedding Options into New High-Level Territory

I

magine driving down a tree- covered country road, dotted with wildflowers and farmhouses, the sun peaking out from the trees. You pull up to an expansive 30-acre property in the midst of it all. The beauty of this striking farm setting, nestled in the middle of a large field, is breathtaking. You immediately realize that it’s not just any old barn, but something brand new. You feel as though you’re far from the hustle and bustle of downtown Sister Bay, but in reality you’re just minutes away from it. You’ve reached Northern Haus, Door County’s premier event destination. Northern Haus specializes in weddings, but also in family reunions, corporate events, retreats, classes and much more. Nick and Sara Anderson, the owners and masterminds behind Northern Haus, have brought you “modern luxury meets Midwestern chic” in this incredible new venue. With plenty of parking, Northern Haus is suited for all event sizes and is designed to set the perfect backdrop for your vision. There are multiple options for indoor and outdoor parties – but indoor, in our opinion, is the showstopper. Walking into Northern Haus, you’re greeted with a modern, chic foyer with seating and mingling space. Looking down a wide hall, you see a 36 ft. tall soaring ceiling, complete with beams and chandeliers.

270


To the left, you can’t miss the glamorous yet sleek and modern 24 ft. bar with cozy barstools and a smooth wood top. It’s easy to imagine your party guests sipping champagne as they saunter from the beautiful indoor space and through one of six sets of doors to picturesque scenery beyond. In summer, enjoy a perfectly manicured lawn and covered porch with Adirondack chairs. Open year round, Northern Haus is climate- controlled and comfortable. Want to say your wedding vows outside? Northern Haus offers a “Forest Retreat” just steps from the barn for staging ceremonies. Back inside, walk upstairs to discover an additional lofted space for more seating and lounging. Down the hall are prep quarters to prepare for your event in luxury and comfort. The restrooms are elegant and spacious – guests will never worry about waiting in line. Envisioning your perfect event, what’s more important than food? Downstairs, just off the bar, the catering kitchen awaits for your caterer of choice. Northern Haus partners with a range of great local restaurants to bring your needs to life, including the culinary talents and expertise of Alexander’s, Parador, McEvoy’s Culinaria, Door County Creamery, Flourgirl Patissier, and Seaquist Orchards. — Laurel Ciohon
