Good to Know... Before You Enroll! What Do These Symbols Mean? First Time Offered, give it a try! A Cooperative Program agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

Spectators

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 61) Enrollment Forms (pages 62 & 63)

Ages Indicated

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care “Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be cancelled. Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status, call

329-5370

(M-F 9 AM-6 PM). Remember to bring your receipt to first class for verification.

Special Refund Note

Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary. Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Waiting Areas

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor.

• Parent/Child Classes

T he spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas.

• Adult Classes

 lease make arrangements for your children P as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorships

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

Greenfield High School Pool 18 AQUATICS

101010-01 101010-02

Participants must furnish their own suits, locks, and towels. Patrons are allowed to bring towels & bags on the deck. The Department of Parks & Recreation and School Districts are not responsible for any lost or damaged articles. Showers must be taken before swimming. NO FOOD OR DRINKS are permitted. Locker room attendants are NOT on duty... However, locker room checks will be made periodically by pool staff. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the genderappropriate locker room. Prior to the start of the class and once dismissed from the pool, participants are not supervised by the swim staff. Please plan accordingly.

Pool Temperature & Maintenance

Water and air temperature is regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment, the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.

Pool Location & Locker Rooms

• Whitnall High School Pool Located at 5000 South 116th Street (116th Street between Layton & Edgerton Aves). Use the entrance to the far left when you face the building. Enter, turn to your right, and proceed down the hall to the locker rooms. The only pool entrance is through the locker rooms. • Greenfield High School Pool Located at 4800 South 60th Street (South 60th & Layton Aves). Use door #11 located on the south side of the building. Upon entering, turn to your left to walk towards the pool doors. Locker room entrances are also to your left down a hallway. Please enter the pool from the locker rooms. The Greenfield High School Pool does offer a Family locker room.

Lesson Observation

Please be advised, once lessons start, only participants and staff may be in the pool area. Parents may observe on the first and last lesson only, as spectators are a distraction to the young swimmers.

Swimming & Water Safety Levels The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child, based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

Parent and Child Aquatics Parent/Child Swim Ratio 1:10

Ages 1-4 Years Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is fun-filled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

Preschool Aquatics (Ages 4-6) Preschool Level 1 (Starfish) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 2 (Seahorse) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 3 (Goldfish) Ratio 1:6

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Child must be age 4 on or before first class and be able to submerge head under water

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Starfish

Ages 5-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Seahorse

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back, floats, glides, leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. .

Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions on front and back are the focus.

Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, and independent swimming with front and back strokes are the primary focus.

Learn-to-Swim (Ages 6-teens) Level 1 Ratio 1:6

Level 2 Ratio 1:6

Level 3 Ratio 1:6

Level 4 Ratio 1:8

Level 5 Ratio 1:8

Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Beyond Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Ages 6-9 Years There are no prerequisites for this level

Ages 6-9 Years Prerequisite: Level 1, 7 years old and completed Seahorse

Ages 7-10 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 2 or Goldfish

Ages 7-12 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 3

Ages 8-12 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 4

Ages 9-13 Years

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age-appropriate water safety topics are reviewed.

Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recovering to a vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick, swimming in deep water, and basic diving skills.

Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke.

Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 5

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 6

This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, and fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover, based upon the interest of the class.


Swimming is a recreational activity that will last a lifetime. Learning to swim happens with swim lessons and spending time in the water during Open Swim for water exploration and play. As a benefit of enrolling your children in the Greenfield Parks & Recreation Departments Learn to Swim program, you are automatically able to attend our Open Swim time at no additional cost during the dates of your class, by showing your Learn to Swim receipt at the door. This benefit is for both you and your child who is in lessons (other family members will be charged our regular admission). You and your child can come to the pool to have fun while providing time for them to practice and develop their skills.

Private Swim Lessons Youth (Ages 6+)- Adult

Private swim lessons are designed to help meet the needs of participants who are seeking more individualized instruction. Teens and adults seeking to improve their swim strokes are welcome. One of our swim instructors will be assigned to work one-on-one with you or your child to accomplish specific strokes or skills during the class. Note: After the "Time Out" date, due to the scheduling of staff, there are no credits or refunds.

Continuing Option To facilitate proper placement of children who do enroll in more than one semester, this is our process: 1) Y  our first session: Enroll in the specific level class. 2) Y  our second session of the semester: Enroll as a “continuing student” and indicate the registration number appropriate for the session. Remember to submit both your form and fee prior to the "Time Out" date given for the session. This will place you on the waiting list. At the second to last lesson, when testing takes place, your child(ren’s) instructor will update the coordinators of their progress. Classes are adjusted to accommodate as many children as possible, also factoring siblings. At the last lesson, participants will receive a slip with placement.

Tae Kwon Do

Youth - Adult Classes will be conducted by Joe Peterson & Staff, Chosun Black Belt Academy LITTLE NINJAS (Ages 3-5 years) Little Ninjas is an easy-to understand class for the younger child to gain the benefits of Tae Kwon Do. There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost- in-the-store safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only. TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet.

OPEN HOUSE (New Students) Wednesday 5:10 PM January 4, February 22 and April 12

Take this opportunity to meet the instructor and learn what takes place in the classroom — activities, Korean customs, and rules of etiquette. Pick up literature that will help your child feel more comfortable as he/she takes part in this exciting program designed to develop stronger students and responsible citizens.

Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn lifesaving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goalsetting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich.

Basic Structural Techniques of the Human Face

Just like anything else, the key to drawing the face is to know its structure. The basic structure of the head is the skull and studying it can help you to understand the masses of the face. At its most basic level, the skull is a large round cranium attached to a pair of jaws, but once the features are added, things get a little more complicated. Jodi will help you develop a better understanding of how to break down the features into their basic shapes as well. Using an ebony pencil, learn how to map out the proportion of the facial features using shading to develop depth to create a convincing portrait!

General Information Program Information The Department of Parks and Recreation directly mails three seasonal “Recreator” activity guides per year to Greenfield residents and businesses. Mailing schedule: SUMMER (May) FALL (August) WINTER/SPRING (December) In addition, specific program flyers are periodically distributed to public and private schools located within the corporate limits of the City of Greenfield. As a public service, timely program information can be found on a regular basis in the CNI Greenfield NOW, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel “Neighbors,” Suburban and Sports sections, Warner Community Access Channel, and the department web site at www.ci.greenfield.wi.us/parksrec. Nondiscrimination Policy It is the policy of the City of Greenfield Department of Parks and Recreation that no person shall, on the basis of race, color, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any City of Greenfield sponsored program, activity, or employment. Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City of Greenfield will make every reasonable effort to accommodate persons with disabilities in the provision of City services, programs, or activities. If you require special accommodation in order to participate, please inform us when you register. School District Cooperation The Department of Parks & Recreation would like to thank both the Greenfield School District and the Whitnall School District for their support and cooperation with facility scheduling. However, due to school athletic and education programming, some recreation activities may need to be cancelled or rescheduled. The community’s understanding during these times is appreciated. Insurance/Liability The City of Greenfield does not provide hospital/medical insurance coverage for persons participating in sponsored activities and cannot assume responsibility for injury to any participants in its recreation programs. Participants are encouraged to obtain their own insurance coverage prior to the start of the program, and to consult with a physician before participating in any strenuous activity. Photographs For program promotion purposes, photographs will be taken of participants from time to time. If you do not wish to have your photo taken, please tell the photographer and/or class instructor.

58 GENERAL INFORMATION

Lesson Observation/ Visitors Day In an effort to better promote a positive learning environment for programs, only registered participants are permitted in the classroom area. Our instructors welcome the opportunity to discuss participants’ progress with parents after class. The final instructional class may be observed by parents, unless special dates are scheduled by the instructors. Cooperative Programming What does this mean? When you see this symbol, it means this program is being made available as part of a cooperative programming agreement with other local departments or agencies. Individually, each department or agency may not have the facility or instructor or enrollment necessary to offer the program. In working together, the cooperative departments are able to better serve the needs of their residents by expanded program opportunities. New Program Ideas The Department of Parks and Recreation is always receptive to suggestions for the development of new program offerings. Please feel free to give us a call with your ideas. Lost and Found If you have lost or misplaced an item in one of our parks or program facilities, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department office. Articles that are found and turned into the office are kept for 60 days. After that period of time, the items are donated to a local charitable organization. The Department of Parks and Recreation and related facility providers are not responsible for any lost or stolen items. TYPO, We Goofed? Occasionally, there may be an error in days, times, registration requirements, locations, or fees. When such errors occur, our staff will do everything possible to correct the situation promptly. The department reserves the right to change program schedules as needed to accommodate demand or school use conflicts. Read your receipt carefully, as any changes since the printing of this RECREATOR will be noted there. Employment Opportunities Persons interested in obtaining part-time/ seasonal employment with the Department of Parks and Recreation should complete an employment application form at the department office. Openings for positions as lifeguards, officials, program supervisors, and instructors for various programs are usually filled from current applications on file. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview as openings become available.

Park & Recreation Board Meetings The City of Greenfield Department of Parks and Recreation is a governmental agency established for the purpose of providing and managing public recreation programs, facilities, and park/open spaces for the community. The Department is governed by appointed board members who serve as a policy-making body. Regular Park and Recreation Board meetings are generally held on the LAST Thursday of each month (exception: November

and December regular meetings are held on the THIRD Thursday of the month) at 7:00 PM

at the Greenfield City Hall, 7325 West Forest Home Avenue. Agendas and minutes are available at www.greenfieldwi.us. Click on “calendars/meetings/agendas” for information on meeting dates, times and location. Residents are invited to attend, and are welcome to make suggestions or comments. Non-resident Policy Definition: In the case of non-resident participation, it is generally accepted that non-resident users should contribute an additional fee to offset their non-tax status. A non-resident is defined as a person who does not reside or own property within the corporate limits of the City of Greenfield (in general, does

not directly contribute to City of Greenfield property taxes).

User Fee Surcharge: Persons defined as a nonresident of the City of Greenfield are required to remit double (100% surcharge) the adopted resident program/service fee (i.e. resident fee of $10 = non-resident fee of $20). Nonresidents who falsely register shall forfeit their privilege to participate, and any related fees collected will be retained by the Department (no refund given). Exception to non-resident user fee/surcharge: • N  on-resident youth who attend either a Greenfield or Whitnall School District School will be assessed at the resident rate. • N  on-residents employed by the City of Greenfield (and spouse; children within immediate household) are exempt from any non-resident related surcharges. • P  ersons who pay partial City of Greenfield property taxes are entitled to a prorated non-resident surcharge based on the percentage of their City of Greenfield tax contribution in relation to their overall property tax bill (payment to other City/Village/ Township entities). For example: If 20% of your overall property tax bill is paid to the City of Greenfield, your non-resident surcharge rate would be 80% (i.e., resident fee of $10 = adjusted non-resident fee of $18).

Winter/Spring 2017 Recreator | www.ci.greenfield.wi.us/parksrec

Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity (i.e. unemployment, long term illness or other hardships) may apply for a reduction or waiver of fee and should contact the Parks & Recreation Office prior to program registration.

GENERAL INFORMATION 59


Become part of the legacy of the parks As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Celebrate a special occasion/event

• Remember a loved one • Recognize an achievement • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

Mayor’s Message Michael J. Neitzke, Mayor Welcome to the Winter/Spring Edition of the GREENfield SHEET! While at the time of this writing the weather has turned cold, activity within the City of Greenfield remains hot. My commitment to make the City a Better Place, the BEST place, has never been stronger. The flurry of positive economic development within the City is continuing. Construction crews are at work throughout the winter months in the City’s largest commercial development, 84 South. That work will continue to accelerate as Spring approaches. New announcements are expected throughout the coming months, as well. It’s expected that the entire project will have a value in excess of $150 million. The final touches are also being applied at the new Meijer’s store on 60th & Layton, with a Spring 2017 opening anticipated. Additional interest from the development community has been expressed at the underutilized Spring Mall, at the Park N’ Ride lot at 894 & Loomis, and within the 76th Street/Layton Avenue corridors. These significant commitments are a testament to the vibrancy of Greenfield. The Renaissance in Greenfield speaks wonders to what we have to offer-great people, great access, great location! Creating a sense of place in Greenfield is a priority. Creating a “Main Street” on Layton helps in that regard. You probably have seen the rehabilitation and pedestrian safety enhancements between 60th and 51st Streets, and new access to Greenfield High School among other things. Konkel Park continues to be the epicenter of community activity and interaction. The amphitheater (“the Amp”) will have a number of events in 2017, including a number of ‘Food Truck Fridays,’ laid back Tuesday night music in the Park, the return of the D.A.R.E. Car Show, and a Fall Run--see the preliminary schedule in this Recreator, and watch for updates on our website and social media. The Farmers’ Market set new attendance records this year despite the reconstruction on Layton. It will be even better next year. The road and utility projects for 2016 wrapped up. They were complicated projects. Next year has one major project: Edgerton Avenue between 27th Street and Loomis. Although the contract to do Edgerton is let by the State of Wisconsin, we will do everything we can to limit its significant impact. Continued patience is requested. If you have questions about any project, always feel free to stop by the Department of Neighborhood Services at City Hall. They would love to help. We believe that cooperation and coordination with our school districts is essential to making a better community. The biggest cooperative endeavor has been the installation of a shared fiber optic network, one of just a handful of such networks nationally. Working together saved us all money, improved technology for our schools, and enhanced the City’s public safety and delivery of services. There are more opportunities to work together, and we’re aggressively pursuing them. Finally, tax season is here as we speak. While the City collects all of the taxes, we actually only keep about 30 cents out of every dollar—the rest going to the other taxing jurisdictions. I’m proud that Greenfield continues to provide the best cutting edge services at costs at or below what other communities do according to the Taxpayers’ Alliance-an independent group that looks at these things. We run the City like a business. We make decisions and investments based upon what’s in the long-term interest of the City and its citizens. I know that money does not grow on trees. We run the City knowing that every dollar that flows into the City was hard-earned by somebody, and needs to be spent wisely. Citizens expect that. I do too. In closing, have a great holiday season. Your family and friends are precious. Enjoy your time with them! — Mike

Crime Reports We’re proud to bring-near real-time reporting and statistics to our community to keep you informed and prevent crime. We’ve partnered with Motorola and CrimeReports.com to bring you incident maps and data and more importantly, integrate with our social media platforms to connect citizens, neighbors and our police department. In the coming months, we’ll be updating some incredible features like the ability to submit a tip with one click, right from the map! One of the amazing features that’s available right now is the ability to register your surveillance camera. Knowing where cameras are located will help us seek out video of incidents that correlate to map locations. The presence of your camera is known only to us and we’ll never share the info! http://tinyurl.com/zpl6x9c

Crime Prevention

The Greenfield Police Department offers many crime prevention and community outreach services. Dozens of useful links are available at the Police Department’s Community Service Page on the web at: http://www.greenfieldpolice.org/ community/community.html Community Service Officers are available to help in forming block watch groups, and attend neighborhood meetings and community events. To contact our Community Service staff call (414) 761-5337.

Snow Emergency

When a Snow Emergency is declared, the City notifies the media outlets in the Milwaukee area. Watch and listen for snow emergency announcements and be aware of the times indicated. During a snow emergency, parking is completely prohibited on major streets and any cars found on these streets are cited and towed. Snow emergency streets include: 27th Street, 35th Street, 43rd Street, 51st Street, 60th Street, 68th Street, 76th Street, 84th Street, 92nd Street, 104th Street, 112th Street, 116th Street, 124th Street, Morgan Avenue, Howard Avenue, Cold Spring Road, Layton Avenue, Edgerton Avenue, Grange Avenue, Ramsey Avenue, College Avenue, Loomis Road, Forest Home Avenue, Beloit Road, and 31st Street between Edgerton Avenue and Grange Avenue

Holiday Scams

Since the holidays, the scammers are setting their sights on you to finance their New Year. They are hoping that your finances are tight enough that you would believe you are an instant winner of a contest you never entered and all you have to do is cash the check they sent you and wire it back to them to cover the taxes. Needless to say, it is a bad check and your bank will hold you responsible for cashing it. These notices will come in the mail, e-mail, or text messages and they may even be on letterhead and they will look legitimate. Do not fall for it! BEFORE SENDING MONEY, DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? * Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize? * Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country? * Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help? * Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan? * Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally? * Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America? These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5301 for advice.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 3 out of 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. If you are in need of a smoke detector or cannot afford one, please contact Battalion Chief Dan Weber at 414-545-7946 / daniel.weber@gffd.us

Adopt A Fire Hydrant Please keep your hydrant clear of snow this winter. The Greenfield Fire Department needs your help. As snow piles up and driveways get plowed, fire hydrants are often buried. If a fire occurs, firefighters need water to rescue occupants and put out the fire. If a fire hydrant is not shoveled, it may take several firefighters to locate and shovel the hydrant, wasting precious resources and time. So, “adopt a hydrant” and make sure it is clear of obstructions (debris, shrubs, etc) and snow. Seconds count and we are counting on you to help.

10 things to do to make your family safe • Make sure your fire hydrant is clear of debris and snow. • Make sure your address is visible from the street. • In a medical emergency, turn on your front light and if someone is available have them wait at the door. • Change your smoke detector battery when you change your clocks. • Replace your smoke detector if it’s 10 years old or older. • Create and practice a home fire escape plan for your family. • Clean the lint out from around your clothes dryer and dryer vent pipe. • Have your natural gas appliances maintained and checked. • Purchase a carbon monoxide detector. • Have your fireplace and chimney inspected.

We Want You Back @ the Library!

January 3-31, 2017 If you have been reluctant to visit the Greenfield Library due to fines for overdue items that have not been returned or late fees, this program is for you! During January, donate non-perishable food items to Hunger Task Force and have eligible fines waived. Anyone who returns an overdue book, DVD, or CD owned by the Greenfield Public Library can have eligible fines forgiven in exchange for donating food items to Hunger Task Force. For each long overdue Greenfield Library item returned, the Library will waive the charges in exchange for the donation of two nonperishable food items. A maximum of 5 long overdue items are eligible for the program and all fine forgiveness must take place in person at the Library during one visit. If you have long overdue items, but can no longer find the items, the Library will waive fines with donations of non-perishable food items to Hunger Task Force up to a maximum of $25.00. Each item donated will reduce your outstanding fines by $2.50. Late fees will also be waived, up to maximum of $25.00, with the donation of non-perishable food items. Each item will reduce your fines account by $2.50. Only materials owned by the Greenfield Library are eligible for this program, so fine forgiveness does not apply to items owned by other libraries within the Milwaukee County Federated Library System. The maximum amount of eligible fines waived will be for the return of 5 long overdue items or $25.00 in overdue fines, or $25.00 in fines associated with long overdue items not returned.

Greenfield’s Health Priorities Through a community engaged process in early 2016, the Greenfield community identified three health priorities through a Community Health Assessment process. These priorities include (1) Physical Activity and Nutrition, (2) Behavioral Health, including issues related to substance abuse and mental health, and, (3) Healthy Aging. Final draft plans of the Community Health Assessment will be available for public comment on the City website in early 2017. The Healthiest Greenfield Coalition, who led the efforts on this process, will also meet in early 2017 to endorse and finalize the Assessment. Final approval is anticipated by the Greenfield Board of Health in March 2017. Workgroups for the three priority areas met in Fall 2015 to identify key strategies and objectives to improve these health indicators. These workgroups are key to the development of the Greenfield Community Health Improvement Plan. New members are still needed for these groups. Please contact Lisa or Darren at the Greenfield Health Department, 414-329-5275, for further information.

Have you Tested Your Home for Radon?

Call-A-Nurse

Radon gas may be an unwelcome visitor in your home. Radon is an invisible, radioactive, odorless, tasteless, colorless gas produced during the natural decay of uranium in the soil. Radon gas permeates from the soil into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the number one cause among non-smokers. Radon test kits are available within the Health Department at a reduced price of $3.00; this price is significantly better than home improvements stores or online. Testing for radon is easy and takes only minutes of your time. The testing process takes at least 72 hours and the results are sent directly to your home. The Health Department has compiled all radon surveillance data since 2010 to create a map identifying areas in the City at higher risk of radon. This map will be available on the City website in January, and will also be available in the Health Department. For more information on radon, or to obtain a test kit, call the Greenfield Health Department at 329-5275 or visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website at https://www.dhs.wisconsin. gov/radon/index.htm.

The Greenfield Health Department staff is available to answer your health related questions. Please call between 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Greenfield Sheet | Community Newsletter

As cold and influenza season continues, it is important to remember that covering your cough or sneeze is the most important way you can prevent spreading illness to others. Thorough hand washing after coughing or sneezing is important to prevent contamination of shared surfaces such as doorknobs, since research indicates that bacteria and viruses may live for two hours or more on surfaces. To stop the spread of germs, you should: · Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow · You may also cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, throwing away the tissue after use · Wash your hands Keys to good hand washing include: · Wet hands under warm running water and apply soap · While washing, pay extra attention to the front and back, between your fingers, around your wrists and under your nails · The appropriate length of time to wash your hands is the time taken to sing “Happy Birthday” or the “A, B, C Song” (approximately 15-20 seconds) · Rinse your hands well under warm water · Dry your hands completely using paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet · Alcohol hand gels or sanitizers may also be used to clean your hands when soap and water are unavailable The Greenfield Health Department wishes you health and safety this winter. By following the information presented above, you will increase your chances of being healthy during the winter months. For more information, contact the Greenfield Health Department at 329-5275.

The Buzz on Beekeeping In January 2016, the Greenfield Common Council accepted the Board of Health’s recommendation to permit beekeeping in the City. Four Greenfield families kept honeybees last year, and by all accounts it was successful on many levels. If you are interested in keeping bees, applications are available from the Health Department. Residents are encouraged to become knowledgeable about beekeeping from other local beekeepers, a membership organization like the MilwaukeeWaukesha Beekeeper’s Association (http:// mwbeekeepers.org/), courses through the UW-Extension (https://milwaukee.uwex. edu/agriculture/beekeeping/). For further information, please contact the Health Department at 414-329-5275.

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Clinic Women, Infant and Children (WIC) clinic services are provided at the Greenfield Health Department through an agreement with the West Allis WIC Program. WIC services are available for residents of Greenfield and surrounding areas, and clinic dates are every Monday and Tuesday. WIC provides food vouchers, nutrition information, and referrals to other providers to help keep pregnant women, breastfeeding women, infants and children less than five years of age healthy and strong. WIC vouchers are used to purchase foods such as milk, fruit juice, cheese, peanut butter, tuna fish, carrots, cereal, dried or canned beans and peas, eggs, fruits and vegetables, whole grain bread or tortillas, brown rice and infant formula. You are eligible for WIC if: • You live in Wisconsin • |You are pregnant, breastfeeding or a new mother • You have an infant or children under 5 years of age • You or your children have a health or nutrition need • You have a household income (before tax deductions) that is less than or equal to WIC income guidelines. Many working families qualify. A pregnant woman counts as two family members. For more information or to apply, please call the Greenfield WIC Project at (414) 302-8642.

Child Safety Seats, and Installation, Available Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in children ages two to 14, and the leading cause of injury-related death for children younger than two. When installed and used correctly, child safety seats and safety belts can prevent injuries and save lives. Young children restrained in child safety seats have an 80 percent lower risk of fatal injury than those who are unrestrained. In partnership with the Fire Department, the Health Department secured a child safety seat grant through the Wisconsin Department of Transportation for 2016-17. Child safety seats are available for Greenfield families that meet certain income guidelines. Please contact the Health Department at 414-329-5275 to determine eligibility for a car seat or for other questions. Car seat installation is available through the Greenfield Fire Department. Please contact the Fire Department at 414-545-7946 to schedule a car seat check or installation. The department will check and/or install car seats purchased as part of the grant or those purchased directly by families. Greenfield residents can check out child safety seat laws in Wisconsin at the Department of Transportation site: http://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/safety/education/child-safety/default.aspx.

Expired Medication Collection Expired medications should be disposed safely at the Greenfield Law Enforcement Center (5300 W. Layton Ave). Please check in at the reception window. This collection site is available for Greenfield residents only; non-Greenfield residents can contact their local police department for more information. Medications ACCEPTED include Prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, Vitamins, and Pet Medications in leakproof containers. These items must be left in their original containers. You may cover your name or personal information on the container if you wish. This collection site WILL NOT ACCEPT Liquid Medications, Lotions, Needles or Sharp objects (see below for sharps collection), Medical devices, Infectious waste, Aerosols, Inhalers, Hydrogen Peroxide.

Collection of Sharps and Used Needles Sharps include medical needles, syringes, lancets (finger-stick devices), and other sharp medical instruments. If you have these devices and need to safely dispose of them, please read further. Many Greenfield residents may need daily injections for diabetes or other medical problems. Disposal of used needles and other sharps is often limited. Sharps should not be placed into the regular garbage, but should instead be placed into approved red “sharps” containers and disposed at a sharps collection site. Sharps containers are available for purchase at local pharmacies and at the Greenfield Health Department. Two sizes are available: Large = $7.00 and Small = $6.00. When the container is full, it can be brought to the Health Department (City Hall, 7325 W. Forest Home Ave.) for safe disposal.

Focus on Carbon Monoxide Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced when fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, wood, coal, oil, natural gas and charcoal do not have enough oxygen to burn completely. The potential for Carbon Monoxide exposure increases during the fall and winter months as the temperature decreases, and homeowners supplement their home’s heat with the use of fireplaces and portable heaters. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure are headache, fatigue dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, and mental confusion. Continued exposure may lead to more serious health problems, including death. The Greenfield Health Department encourages the use of carbon monoxide detectors in homes. Carbon monoxide detectors function like smoke detectors and sound an alarm if carbon monoxide levels are high enough to cause illness; these detectors are available at most retail and hardware stores. Regular inspections of combustion appliances such as gas appliances, fireplaces, furnaces, water heaters and chimneys will ensure they are working properly and have adequate ventilation. For more information on carbon monoxide, call the Greenfield Health Department at 329-5275 or visit the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website at https://www.dhs. wisconsin.gov/air/co.htm.

Restaurant Inspections Available Online The Greenfield Health Department is responsible for enforcement of local and state codes related to the inspection and licensure of all food-related businesses. Inspection reports for both Retail Food Establishments and Restaurants and Food Service may be found at: http://healthspace.com/Clients/WI/Greenfield/ Web.nsf/home.xsp. While these reports provide information on the conditions observed by the Environmental Health Specialist at the time of inspection, they may not reflect corrective actions or current conditions. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term operation of the facility. Therefore, visitors to this site are cautioned against making interpretations regarding a particular facility based on only one report. While every effort is made to keep the information accurate, the City of Greenfield is not responsible for discrepancies between posted information and the actual inspection reports provided to the licensed establishment. Please contact the Health Department at 414329-5275 if you have questions regarding an inspection report, or to notify the health department of concerns you may have at a licensed facility.

Whitnall High School’s DECA Collects 30,000 Pounds of Food for Food Drive

At the start of November, Whitnall High School’s DECA delivered a grocery bag to each residence in the district. Attached to each bag was a letter requesting that the recipient fill the bag with food, which would, in turn, be donated to Hunger Task Force. On November 12th, the students in DECA collected the filled bags from homes throughout the community. At the end of their collection, they discovered that they had reached their goal of collecting 30,000 pounds of food. DECA’s advisor, Jim Rumage, said, “We have been trying to hit this goal for the last three years.” In collecting this impressive amount of food, Whitnall High School’s DECA both reached their longstanding goal and made a significant contribution to feeding the hungry men, women and children in the Greater Milwaukee Area.

Whitnall School District Teaching Students through Land Restoration

Seventh graders at Whitnall Middle School will seed the northeast corner of the Whitnall School Forest on Thursday, December 1st, as part of a science project aimed to rehabilitate local land. This past summer, fiber optic cables were laid through a portion of the school forest, disturbing the land. Whitnall’s staff saw this as an opportunity to teach students how to solve a real-world environmental problem using science. After securing a Wisconsin Environmental Education Board grant, the seventh graders researched the land’s history and current state, traveled to sites that have undergone restoration, and developed plans for restoring the area of the school forest that has been disturbed. It was decided that the area would become an oak savanna, as the area had been originally. Now, the rehabilitation is underway, and the next step is a seeding that will be carried out by the students themselves. This project allows Whitnall students to have hands-on experience in environmental science, which deepens their learning, their regard for the environment, and their ownership in the health of natural areas in their community.

Greenfield Beautification Committee

announces their 2017 Spring ProGRAMS!

The Greenfield Beautification Committee will again sponsor several Spring events in 2017.

Landscape Seminar - April 8, 2017 Kick off the season with an informative seminar from a gardening expert held at the Greenfield Library. See our website for details. Greenfield’s 26th Arbor Day Celebration

Preparing Trees & Plants for Winter The quality of rest (dormancy) for trees and plants affects their health and production. Let’s take a few minutes to talk about preparing them for winter. Each year is divided into four seasons: winter, spring, summer, and fall. Plants and trees experience life cycles through these seasons. For human beings, life cycles occur every day. We require a certain amount of rest each day (we call it sleep) to function the following day. The amount and quality of our rest helps to determine how healthy and productive we are. Most trees “sleep” each winter (we call it their dormancy period). The amount and quality of their rest also determines how healthy and productive they are! Let’s take a few minutes to talk about preparing for winter and making this dormancy period the best it can be for your plants and trees.

Outdoor Plants and Trees Insulation

It is important to protect the root systems

80

of young plants and trees. This can easily be achieved by applying a layer of mulch on top of the soil around the root system*. Mulch, which can be comprised of natural things like wood chips, leaf/yard compost, sawdust, or straw, acts as an insulator that protects the roots when the temperature drops in late fall/winter/early spring. Mulch also acts as a weed deterrent and helps retain moisture during the growing season. Laying down a weed-mat barrier, like tree circles, and covering the barrier with mulch is a simple means to avoid a number of problems at the root level all year long. *Be sure not to pile mulch around the trunk, to avoid potentially harmful issues like creating an environment for rot or nibbling-critter damage.

Depredation

As summer comes to a close, the grass and ground-covers toughen, moving rabbits to chew on tree bark. This destructive threat increases with cold weather and snow cover. On the farm, outbuildings, clutter

Greenfield Sheet | Community Newsletter

and ground-cover provide adequate cover to house this animal. In urban settings, landscaping, hedges, and ground-cover provide the same housing and can be even worse than the rural setting. It’s heartbreaking to grow and nurture plants and trees along, only to wake one morning to find them girdled to death or impaired for life by hungry critters. Rabbits can chew trees way up into their fifth and sixth season. Simple and inexpensive solutions that can be applied in mere seconds are tree guards. These wraps also afford protection to the trunk by reflecting the winter sun’s rays. Most winter damage to the tree’s trunk is from getting warmed up on bright, sunny winter days. At nightfall, the trunk often doesn’t adjust to the sudden temperature drop. Trunk-protecting tree guards are a must! “Visit the Greenfield Forestry information booth at the Farmers Market”
