Two former city employees face felonies By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net Multiple felony and misdemeanor charges were filed Tuesday afternoon by the state Attorney General’s office against the former head of the Lake Geneva Street Department and the street department foreman, who until last week, was the interim department head. The charges come directly from an investigation into the

street department by the Lake Geneva Police Department and the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office that started in October. According to City Attorney Dan Draper, the Attorney General’s office is still investigating. Ronald M. Carstensen, 55, of Lake Geneva, was charged in Walworth County Circuit Court with three counts of theft from a business setting between $2,500 and $5,000; one count of theft from a business setting $5,000

to $10,000 and one count of theft from a business setting of $10,000 or more, and two counts of misconduct in office, all felonies. According to the Attorney General’s office, Carstensen is accused of giving away more than $25,000 worth of salt and sand to private companies between 2009 and 2013 while working as street superintendent.

Kedzie takes lobbying job By John Halverson jhalverson@lakegenevanews.net MADISON — Neal Kedzie wasn’t unemployed for very long. It was announced Tuesday that Kedzie will become president of the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association effective July 1. Last week, Kedzie announced his resignation from the Wisconsin State Senate. At the time Kedzie indicated that he needed to resign in order to take advantage of “a new opportunity.” It was presumed at the time that he was resigning before the end of his term in January because he couldn’t accept a lobbying job while still serving in the legislature. In April Kedzie had announced

he was running for re-election. A month later he changed his mind saying that he’d retire after the end of his current term. Kedzie was Kedzie first elected to the State Assembly in 1997 and later to the State Senate in 2002. His 11th Senate District includes portions of Jefferson, Waukesha, Rock, Walworth and Kenosha counties. The Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association is a trade group, which represents truck and bus companies. The organization has more than 1,000

members. In addition to representing the interests of trucking companies, the association has divisions for the Wisconsin Towing Association, the Wisconsin Motor Coach Association and the Wisconsin Milk Haulers Association. “I am delighted to take on the role of president and build upon WMCA’s recognized status as the leading voice of the commercial motor vehicle operators in this state,” Kedzie said in a press release. “Growing a strong economy is dependent on a vibrant trucking industry and I welcome the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead moving this organization forward.” He took over for Tom Howells, who led the organization for 35 years.

Leading up to Guerrero’s murder

DELAVAN — Recently released documents from the Delavan Police Department reveal a possible motive in the homicide death of 31-year-old Ivan Guerrero. Guer rero’s cousin by marriage, Rafael Olivarez, is in custody and has been charged with f i r st- deg re e intentional homicide in Walwor th Olivarez County Circuit Court. According to the recently released reports, Olivarez held suspicions that Guerrero was responsible for the death of his cousin, Jesse Perez. According to reports, Perez’s death in 2000 was ruled a suicide, but Olivarez and others were suspicious that Guerrero was somehow responsible. While in custody, Olivarez allegedly told Delavan Police Officer James Berlin “something to the effect that Ivan killed Rafael’s cousin and that he had to defend himself,” the reports states. When police questioned Ivan Guerrero’s wife, Brenda Garcia, she said in the early morning hours of her husband’s death she heard Olivarez become “belligerent and mad at Ivan.” “Garcia said Rafael was yelling statements accusing Ivan of involvement in his cousin’s death, then started swinging and fighting with Ivan,” the police reports state.

On May 3, Olivarez and his aunt, Rebecca Perez, went to Guerrero and Garcia’s apartment to watch the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana. At the apartment, Guerrero, Garcia and Olivarez drank, “but in Garcia’s opinion (were) not extremely intoxicated.” Perez went home and arrangements were made for Olivarez to spend the night at the apartment. Perez told police that she left the apartment on May 4 at about 1:30 a.m., and when she left everyone was getting along. At some point after Garcia left, Olivarez and Guerrero began arguing. Garcia said she attempted to intervene, but Olivarez hit her, and police saw her right wrist and thumb were badly swollen, according to the reports. Garcia said that she saw Olivarez grab a knife from the kitchen. “Garcia clearly attributed this attack to past bad feelings about this other cousin being killed years ago, and felt Rafael stabbed Ivan as (a) mistaken act of revenge/retaliation,” police reports state. When police arrived on the scene, at about 3:17 a.m., Berlin located Olivarez waiving him down in front of the apartments on Lawson School Road. Berlin reports that Olivarez was covered in blood. Police also report seeing Guerreo lying on the ground covered in blood.

COMING ATTRACTIONS Concert in the Park July 3 “Project Two” will entertain the public in Lake Geneva’s Flat Iron Park, Wrigley Drive, from 6 to 8 p.m. The 12-person ensemble performs everything from Broadway songs to ‘80s rock anthems.

Trostel cuts ribbon on new addition By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net Twenty-five thousand square feet of open space easily swallowed up the 75 or so guests and officials who showed up for ribbon cutting ceremonies at the new Trostel building addition, 901 Maxwell St., Lake Geneva. That addition will also be expected to swallow up new equipment and up to 20 new employees involved in manufacturing new products and processes, an essential part of Trostel’s business. The new structure replaces a 67,800-square-foot warehousemanufacturing building that the company no longer used to capacity. In addition, the company remodeled about 17,000 square feet of office space to encourage collaboration and idea sharing among its engineers, according to a company press release. In a brief statement at the ribbon cutting, Alan Larsen, president of the Walworth County Economic Development Alliance board of directors, said the alliance was pleased that Trostel decided to remain and expand in Walworth County. Trostel CEO Steve Dyer opened the ribbon cutting ceremony and was master of ceremonies. Officials from Trostel and Everett Smith Group, the Milwaukee-based investment firm that owns Trostel, also took part in the grand opening. Dyer gave special thanks to lead contractor Scherrer Construction Co., Burlington, for

He expressed admiration for construction crews who worked through some brutal winter temperatures to get the roof up on the building. He also lauded the state and the county for their assistance in the building process. Dyer called the addition a “field of dreams concept, if we build it, they will come.” A company spokesman said Trostel began moving machinery into the addition after the open house. Among the machines to be set up in the addition are two

German-made custom injection molding machines. The process of tearing down the old manufacturing plant started in August. It was supposed to be completed by February, but difficult winter conditions delayed completion. Total cost of renovations aof the Lake Geneva plant are estimated at $3 million, according to the press release. In an October Regional News story, Dyer said the Lake Geneva work was part of a $7 million investment in Trostel’s Walworth County facilities.

Trostel also added 30,000 square feet to its plant in Whitewater. The remodeled Lake Geneva plant and its connected offices will remain Trostel’s world headquarters. The company is officially described as a manufacturer of custom seals, precision-molded rubber products and custom rubber compounds. Trostel makes products on which most people and businesses rely, but few ever think of. Trostel makes customdesigned seals for a wide variety of uses in cars, construction

equipment, appliances, for the oil industry, mining and boats. The new Lake Geneva manufacturing space will be used to create new products and prototypes for customers. Trostel doesn’t just manufacture the seals, its engineers also design and build the manufacturing process. Sometimes the company also invents the materials from which its products are made. Albert Trostel & Sons Co. started with Albert Gottlieb Trostel, a German immigrant who came to Milwaukee in the 1850s. Trostel opened a hide tanning company, which made its fortune during the Civil War. The leather-maker supplied the Union Army with boots, leather straps and reins for horsedrawn caissons. During peace time, Trostel’s Milwaukee-based company made leather boots and calfskin gloves along with leather grease seals for carriages and wagons. Military needs for leather products in World Wars I and II added to Trostel’s profitability. Trostel opened its Lake Geneva facility in 1952. As Trostel’s business evolved from calfskin gloves to plastic seals and gaskets, it began to pull away from its beginnings in tanning hides. Lake Geneva became Trostel’s world headquarters in 1969, when the company finally cut ties with its Milwaukee operations. In addition to Whitewater, Trostel also has facilities in McAllen, Texas, and Reynosa, Mexico.

Car show will benefit St. Mary’s food pantry Organizer has built dune buggies out of ‘just junk’

Car show one part of Bloomfield’s Fourth of July The Pell Lake Car and Bike Show is just one of the activities in store for this year’s Independence Day festivities in Bloomfield. There are also: • The 20th annual Fourth of July parade. This is Monroe’s last stint as parade organizer (see future story for more information). The parade lineup begins at 11 a.m. at the beach, corner of North Lakeshore and Orchid drives. The parade begins at noon, traveling from North Lakeshore Drive to Clover Road, to the park at the town/ village hall. • Fireworks display at dusk (usually around 9:30 p.m.) over Pell Lake.

By Steve Targo steve@lakegenevanews.net BLOOMFIELD — “It’s like building a big model,” said Bill Steinhoff. He estimates that he’s built between 20 and 25 vehicles. Among them are a 1965 Volkswagen trike and a 1968 dune buggy, both of which might be on display at the July 4 Pell Lake Car and Bike Show, which he’s organizing, at the town/village hall park, N1100 Town Hall Road. “My wife used to yell at me,” he said. “I had 22 cars on our property at one time.” Bill’s wife, Sandy, also helps out on these projects. She said she helped scrape off six layers of paint from an old Beetle that Bill was rebuilding about 15 years ago. “It’s amazing because some of these things are just junk,” she said. “By the time he’s done with them, they’re truly beautiful vehicles.” It’s not just his vehicles that will be on display at the July 4 car show. Bill said there could be up to 100 vehicles there. “If everybody shows who said they’ll try to make it, we’re in trouble,” he laughed. “They were even passing out fliers for it in the Dells, we found out,” said Sandy. Ken Monroe, Bloomfield village president, gave a nervous chuckle when asked what if that many vehicles arrive. “But if we could get 50, that would be great to start with,” he said. It’s the first time that the show is part of the village’s Fourth of July festivities. “I’m glad to see it,” said Monroe, who’s a bit of a car guy himself, as well as owner of Monroe’s Automotive, Pell Lake. “It’s great. I really hope it blossoms into something big for the Fourth of July.” The show is also a fundraiser for the St. Mary’s Memorial Food Pantry. Sandy volunteers at the pantry with Jeanne Cizon. “We still feed 40 to 50 families a week,” said Sandy. Cizon said it is the pantry’s third car show and “the only real fundraiser we have.” The pantry

IT ONLY HAS 79 miles on it, said Bill Steinhoff, of his 1965 Volkswagen trike. Expect to see it, his dune buggy and a lot more vehicles July 4 at the Pell Lake Car and Bike Show. Bill said he’s expecting about 100 vehicles.

What you need to know about the Show • It’s July 4 (with a July 6 rain date), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the park at the town/village hall, N1100 Town Hall Road. • It’s free admission, and there will be raffles and door prizes throughout the event, featuring prizes donated by local businesses. • Dash plaques and goodie bags will be handed out to the first 50 who attend. • 100 percent of the proceeds go to St. Mary’s Memorial Food Pantry.

THIS 1968 DUNE BUGGY, left, is one that Bill Steinhoff built with his friend, Al Shouse. It has a handmade frame and a 2,100cc motor. “It’s a little too fast,” Bill said, noting that it “starts to float” when it reaches 85 mph. “But the speed limit’s 65,” he said. receives no government funding, she said, but it has a thrift shop. It’s Bill’s first crack at organizing a car show, and he said he’s had no problems convincing people to help because the pantry’s reputation precedes itself. “All I have to do is ask people and they’re right on board, which makes my job easier.”

Car guy Why did Bill get the job of organizing the car show? Because

he’s a “car guy,” he said, in the “car network.” He often buys parts from places like Summit Racing, Jeg’s Racing and Speedway. Originally from the north side of Chicago, Bill lived in a neighborhood where everyone had hot rods, such as Novas and Chevelles. “My garage was kind of the hang out.” He took automotive classes at Gordon Tech, then in his late teens, moved to Pell Lake. His new neighbor was Bob Bobula,

“another old-school car guy,” said Bill. He said Bobula was “like a mentor” to him because he taught him a lot about cars. Bill went to Lewis University, Romeoville, Ill. “I went there to play ball and learn aviation maintenance.” When he broke his hand, he couldn’t play ball anymore. “Then, I was working in a custom fabrication shop, and a guy who was a little older than me started building a dune buggy,” Bill said.

He met Al Shouse. “He got me hooked. I helped him build his dune buggy and, once I drove it, I had to have one.” By the time he got hooked, it was “that era when everybody had a Volkswagen” as a second vehicle. “Everybody wanted to get rid of one, and I could never say no.” Twenty or 25 vehicles later, Bill said he builds, often with Shouse, because it’s the sense of accomplishment from taking “loads of junk” and creating something. “But what I enjoy most is the look on my wife’s face when I’m done with it, and she’s shocked by how good it looks,” he said.

Linn 4-H’ers have volunteered for decades By Steve Targo steve@lakegenevanews.net LINN — “The kids, it’s phenomenal, the projects they come up with.” So said Sandi Pillman, general leader of the Linn 4-H Club, which turns 100 this year. Pillman has been involved in the club for 22 years — not as long as fellow leader Donna Kundert, who has been involved in it at least 42 years. On June 10, they went through the club’s list of 100th anniversary activities. Pillman said it’s hard “trying to keep our regular stuff, in conjunction with the anniversary stuff,” but it begged the question why are they still holding down active roles at the helm, along with two other general leaders — Lisa Lasch and Dan Kundert, Donna’s husband? Pillman and Donna Kundert share the belief that 4-H helps children grow. “Anybody who is a leader in 4-H, they need to be commended because they are helping children in so many ways,” said Kundert. They told a story of one member who joined 4-H because a friend encouraged her. That friend “turned on her,” said Kundert, and became her enemy. But when the member approached Kundert about quitting, she encouraged her to follow her interests. In the process, that member made some new friends. She didn’t quit, said Kundert. Perhaps it’s that kind of attitude that’s kept the Linn 4-H Club alive so long. “We have 59 members now, from 33 families, and I believe we have 21 project leaders,” Pillman said. “The membership goes up and down.

Linn 4-H Club turns 100 There are several activities the club has completed and are still working on. That was the focus of a story in last week’s Regional News. The club is raising funds to complete other activities. The next one — a freewill donation car wash — is Saturday, June 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Woodhill Farms Nursery, N1445 Highway 120. The club is also seeking out alumni to attend an ice cream social Aug. 8 at Fireman’s Park. For more information or to connect with 4-H leaders, visit www.linn4-hclub.com.

SANDI PILLMAN (left) and Donna Kundert stand at the Linn 4-H historical marker on South Lake Shore Drive. Recently, the Linn 4-H Club redid the landscaping around the marker, which may appear in a future episode of “Discover Wisconsin” along with interviews of club members. It’s all because the Linn club turns 100 this year. of the club, largely based on how many people are involved in it, was uncertain. When Pillman was asked to become a leader, Kundert said, “We didn’t want the club to fold, as so many of them often do.” Pillman said she was “a city girl,” originally from Flint, Mich., who moved to Linn about 25 years ago. “I had no affiliation with 4-H growing up. It started with my oldest boy.” That’s Carlin, who was 8 when he joined 4-H because, as Sandi said, “it was like the thing to do” for local children. Sandi said she stayed involved because Kundert had asked her.

But her first encounter with 4-H was back in Flint. “I had a friend who was in 4-H,” Sandi said. “I helped her wash a cow. You don’t want to wear flipflops when you clean a cow.” A common misconception about 4-H today is that it’s all about agriculture. Pillman and Kundert agreed that the animal shows are a big part of the Walworth County Fair for many. Despite Pillman’s remarks about how she learns interesting things from member projects, such as how the color of a chicken’s ear lobes helps determine the color of its eggs, there are other areas of 4-H, including crafts, food and

nutrition, photography, woodworking and robotics. “There’s opportunities to go to Space Camp,” said Pillman.

Didn’t bleed green at first Kundert said she “didn’t bleed green” when she first joined 4-H. She said she knows she was involved in the club at least since 1972, because of a club picture. “I wasn’t one of your true-blue 4-H’ers, as I see kids now, how they are.” Originally from Harvard, Ill., Kundert has lived in Linn since she was in third-grade. She said what kept her involved in the club, at first, was her love of

horses. She’s still a horseless horse leader. When asked why she became a general leader, Kundert told a story about her first experience chaperoning a club trip to the state 4-H conference in Madison. She said the club needed her to chaperone, otherwise they couldn’t make the trip. About 500 4-H’ers usually attend the conference. They go to seminars, stay in dorms, and “it was a college experience, to me.” When the Linn 4-H club returned home, as they were leaving the bus, Kundert heard one boy say he didn’t think he’d be afraid to go to college anymore. “It just hit me (that) he wouldn’t be able to have gone if I didn’t chaperone,” said Kundert. “I told myself I’d do it again.” Perhaps it’s efforts such as these, by people like Pillman and Kundert, that have kept the club going strong for 100 years. “I think it speaks volumes of what the program is,” said Pillman.

Short-term rental advertisements illegal New ordinance allows town to levy ďŹ nes of between $1,000 and $35,000 By Steve Targo steve@lakegenevanews.net GENEVA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Short-term rentals are against state law and prohibited by a Walworth County ordinance, but some town ofďŹ cials believed there still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough teeth for enforcement. Now, the town has a new ordinance which prohibits advertising short-term rentals. The penalty is a ďŹ ne â&#x20AC;&#x153;not less than $1,000, nor more than $35,000 and the costs of prosecution,â&#x20AC;? states the ordinance. On June 9, on a 3-2 vote, the town board adopted the ordinance. Town chairman Joe Kopecky and supervisors Merle Loomer and Mike Mumford voted in favor of it. Supervisors Gene Decker and Keith Millard opposed it. In a June 16 email, supervisor Gene Decker said he will not comment on the issue. Attempts to reach Millard and Kopecky were

unsuccessful by press time. But in a June 17 phone interview, Loomer said town police can now address the problem of shortterm rentals with the property owners ďŹ rsthand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason I voted for it is because the county really has no teeth in their ordinance. We kind of had our hands tied because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any way to enforce it.â&#x20AC;? In an email Friday, Mumford said it provides the town with a tool to ďŹ ght illegal, short-term rentals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite the state law and county ordinance, illegal shortterm rentals exist because, up to this moment in time, the laws havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been strictly enforced. Now, the town can at least eliminate the solicitation, which will hopefully put an end to this practice, Mumford said.â&#x20AC;?

Supervisor Mike Mumford said. calendar month â&#x20AC;&#x153;or 30 consecutive days, whichever is less.â&#x20AC;? Loomer and Mumford said there are still advertisements online for short-term rentals in the town of Geneva. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you pull up â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;summer rentalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;Ś apparently, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spelled out that you can rent in the town for a week,â&#x20AC;? said Loomer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still out there, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re accessible, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still legal in some places.â&#x20AC;?

Too loose He said when the debate over short-term rentals ďŹ rst occurred at a board meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really against it, but the more I heard about it, the more I realized itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good thing because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not regulated.â&#x20AC;? Why the need for regulation?

Mumford said residents have often complained about shortterm rentals â&#x20AC;&#x153;in terms of increased trafďŹ c, noisy parties and general disregard for full-time residents. I personally enjoy the tranquility of my residential neighborhood on McDonald Road and would not like to have this type of activity going on close by.â&#x20AC;? Loomer and Mumford pointed out that hotels, motels and resorts are required to obtain licenses and pay the town rental taxes. Short-term rentals are not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Illegal short-term rentals take business away from legitimate resorts, cottages, motels, hotels, etc., that are properly zoned, insured, state-licensed and inspected and pay room taxes to the town of Geneva.

Fireboat may launch on Geneva Lake this summer Geneva Lake Association raising money for vessel By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net LINN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Members of the Geneva Lake Association hope to have enough money raised this summer so the town of Linn can buy a ďŹ reboat and have crews trained in its operation before fall. Dianna Colman, a member of the GLAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors and who is heading the ďŹ reboat project, said the association has raised about 60 percent of the $425,000 to buy and equip the boat and train crew members from each of the ďŹ re departments that serve the shore areas of Geneva Lake. The funds are coming entirely from private donations, Colman said. The boat should beneďŹ t homes even one or two streets away from the lakefront, Colman said. Colman said the GLA is preparing a big push to ďŹ nish the fundraising so the town can buy the boat and start training crews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hopeful to have the boat in the water by later this summer. It would be good to get the ďŹ reďŹ ghters trained,â&#x20AC;? Colman said. The GLA has an agreement with the town of Linn that it will turn over money when it has between 80 and 90 percent of the cash raised, Colman said. Association members and residents living along the lake have donated toward the boat, she said. The boat will be built by Lake Assault, a division of Fraser Shipyards, Superior. According to information provided by Colman, the aluminum-hulled boat will be 32 feet long and about 10.5 feet wide, with a front drop ramp. Dry hull weight will be about 11,000 pounds. While the boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary operating time will be during late spring through fall, the boat is heavy enough to cut its way through six inches of ice, Colman said. The boat is able to pump 1,500 gallons of water a minute. And while the boat will have a ďŹ re hose, the ďŹ reboatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main

The boatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pumps will be powerful enough to ďŹ ll ďŹ re tankers at the scene of the ďŹ re The boat will be stationed with the Linn Fire Department and kept on a lift at the end of Shadow Lane on the south shore of Geneva Lake and would be available to all lake municipalities. The town of Linn is particularly interested in the ďŹ reboat, because there are no ďŹ re hydrants in the entire town, said Jim Gee, president of the GLA board of directors. And the town of Linn is divided by Geneva Lake. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ re station is on the south side of the lake, making it difďŹ cult to provide ďŹ re protection services to the north side. The Linn Fire Department is dependent on tankers to provide the water necessary to ďŹ ght ďŹ res, and sometimes sources of water are distant from the ďŹ re scene, requiring tankers to make lengthy trips to reďŹ ll. According to a presentation made by the Lake Geneva Police and Fire Commission last year by Tom Nichols, a member of the GLA, many of the lakeside homes have restricted access by land. Often the lakeside landscape is steep and driveways into the area narrow. Getting a ďŹ re truck to some ďŹ res have been difďŹ cult. And some of the lakeside homes are very close to each other, making a ďŹ re at one residence a threat to its neighbors. Lake Geneva Fire Chief Brent Connelly has said that a ďŹ reboat could assist the Lake Geneva Fire Department in the case of a downtown ďŹ re. FireďŹ ghters from lakefront ďŹ re departments were invited to the Line Fire Department in April to view a ďŹ reboat similar to the one the association wants to buy, Colman said. The boat can be operated by a single operator, but two or three serve on the boat for safety reasons, Colman said. She said ďŹ re department tanker drivers would also need some training about how to reďŹ ll their tanks on the ďŹ reboat. The GLA was established to improve the conservation, preservation, environmental integrity and general welfare of Geneva Lake and its surrounding area. Members pay annual dues and participate in projects and special events sponsored by the association.

term renters do not adhere to any of those requirements,â&#x20AC;? said Mumford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the main reason I was against short-term rentals in the end,â&#x20AC;? said Loomer. He also said it ties up the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important part was the police department was being kept busy (by) some of those weekend, short-term rentals.â&#x20AC;? Is 30 days or a calendar month, whichever is less, a good way to deďŹ ne a short-term rental? Loomer thought so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you rent for that length of time (or longer), youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably going to get families. You probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get weekend partiers that are going to get out of hand.â&#x20AC;? Mumford also said it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a good limitation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, a renter staying in an establishment for a longer period of time is more likely to have more respect for the neighbors, accommodations, and everything else in general. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in and out in a weekend, one, two or three weeks, or in between, there may be an attitude of, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What the heck? Who cares?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Street/City Administrator says he never gave permission to give away salt Carstensen also is charged with cashing and keeping a $20.06 sales tax refund check meant for the city after buying a scanner for the street department, a misdemeanor. Carstensen resigned from the street department in December. If convicted on all counts, Carstensen faces a maximum of 34 years and three months in prison and fines totaling $95,000.

Hoeft charges Donald A. Hoeft Jr., 64, Lake Geneva, is facing two felony counts of misconduct in office and one felony count of theft from a business setting between $2,500 and $5,000. He was also charged with three misdemeanors, two of theft from a business setting of $2,500 or less and one misdemeanor count of encouraging a parole or probation violation. The charges against Hoeft are based on incidents occurring between March 2012 and May 2013. Hoeft was removed as interim superintendent after a closed meeting of the city council’s personnel committee on June 16. If convicted on all counts, Hoeft faces a maximum of 12 years and nine months in prison. Hoeft retired from city employment on Friday. Carstensen had been a Lake Geneva Street Department employee since 1996 and was street superintendent from 2006 through 2013. Hoeft has been a street department employee for 18 years. He’s been the second-in-charge of the street department for the past seven years. Hoeft is charged with not turning over proceeds from recycling city oil and scrap metal. According to the complaint, Hoeft sent city employees on scrap metal runs in city vehicles on work time. He is also charged for falsifying a woman’s public service record in order to get a break on the price of her pickup truck. The woman was on probation for an OWI. She was selling her pickup for $2,000. Part her sentence was to complete 45 hours of public service. By claiming that the woman worked more public service hours at the street department than she actually did, Hoeft was able to buy the truck from her for $1,000. When confronted, Hoeft reportedly insisted that the times on the woman’s time sheet were correct. When he was told that the woman had already told authorities she did not work all of her required hours, Hoeft then said he believed that the woman worked three days and that he signed off on three more days she did not work. “It teaches you not to help people,” Hoeft allegedly told authorities. “Was I wrong? Probably, yeah,” he also reportedly said.

Summonses issued Lake Geneva Police Lt. Edward Gritzner said neither Carstensen nor Hoeft were arrested. They were issued summonses to appear in court to hear the charges. Their initial appearances before Judge David N. Reddy are scheduled for July 22. Assistant Attorney General Annie Jay is representing the AG’s office in this case. According to the formal complaint against Carstensen, the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department was contacted by a confidential informant, who suggested the department look into Carstensen’s activities at the Lake Geneva Street Department. Detective Robert Schiltz met with the informant, who said that Carstensen had been providing city salt and sand to local landscaping companies. The street department is under the direction of City Administrator Dennis Jordan and Public Works Director Dan Winkler.

The city buys a mixture of 20 perSee page 8A for cent salt and 80 a story about the percent sand for reaction from winter road traction through Walworth city officials County. about the County officials alleged theft. told investigators that there is a county policy, issued June 2008, that forbids sale of salt to private businesses or individuals. Lake Geneva Police Detective Joseph Ecklund interviewed Jordan on Jan. 22. Jordan provided police with three contracts between the city and county for salt and sand. A contract dated March 9, 2009, with Carstensen’s signature on it, says that “salt will not be resold for private purposes per Wisconsin state statute 83.018.” Jordan said the last signed salt contract between Lake Geneva and the county was from 2009. Carstensen later told police that he had not read the contract before he signed it.

More coverage

Went on trust Salt and sand was allegedly being sent to C&D Landscaping & Design Inc., N4819 Bowers Road, Elkhorn, and B&J Tree & Landscape, W2795 Krueger Road, Lake Geneva. Jordan said Carstensen approached him in 2010 and asked permission to sell its leftover salt to C&D. The amount was seven or eight tons at $55 a ton. Jordan said the city invoiced C&D for the sale and C&D paid for it. Jordan said he never gave the street department permission to give away the city’s sand and salt. Interviewed on Jan. 20, Winkler told investigators he never saw what Carstensen was doing and “mostly went on trust.” Winkler also said he never gave Carstensen permission to give away city sand or salt to private companies. On Jan. 2, at the request of investigators, City Comptroller Peg Pollitt provided invoices showing C&D paid the city $6,991 in two installments for “salt usage” in February 2013. Invoices also show that the city has paid both B&J and C&D landscaping companies for services, including tree plantings, snow removal and hauling. According to the complaint, a B&J representative told investigators that Carstensen went to work for B&J shortly after he resigned from the city, but then resigned from B&J shortly after that. When interviewed by detectives, Carstensen said that the practice of providing salt to private businesses started before he became superintendent. He said as an employee, when Lynn Allen was superintendent, he was ordered to load private trucks with city sand and salt. Allen told investigators in a Jan. 15 interview that street department employees never dropped off city salt and sand to private residents and businesses. He also said he was never approached by private businesses when he was street superintendent. Carstensen also said he was also told by Winkler to load up a truck for Schiller Landscape one time. He said he probably loaded up Schiller trucks three or four times. Carstensen reportedly told the investigators that he didn’t see a problem because “one hand washes the other.” He also said that Winkler and Jordan were probably not aware that he was providing city salt and sand to private companies. Carstensen told police that he started sending salt and sand to B&J Landscape on a barter system four or five years previous. He said that things later got out of hand. Bill Hill, a B&J employee, told police that the city had become B&J’s sole pro-

vider of salt and sand for the previous three years. Carstensen later told investigators that he didn’t know that. Carstensen said that in the year previous to his leaving the city, B&J was calling Hoeft instead of him. He said he had no idea that the city was sending out so much salt and sand. He said he would take “partial” blame because he did not stay on top of the salt and sand going to B&J and C&D. Carstensen said he didn’t get any personal benefit from supplying B&J with salt and sand. Carstensen told investigators he believed he was being “set up because of what he knows,” the complaint says. On Feb. 5, B&J Landscaping was charged $19,903 for salt and sand from the city. B&J paid the bill to the city in full on Feb. 19.

Scrap scheme In addition to participating in the theft of sand and salt, Hoeft is also charged with scrapping city property for cash and not turning over all the cash to the city. Jerry Kutsch, an official of Heritage Crystal Clean, Spring Grove, Ill., told investigators on Jan. 17 that company records showed two oil pick ups from the Lake Geneva Street Department and both checked were written to Hoeft personally, one for $240 on March 19, 2012 and another for $240 on June 18, 2013. “Kutsch stated that he thought it was

‘a little weird’ that a municipality would have a check written out to an individual,” the complaint record states. Comptroller Pollitt told authorities that the city never received money from oil recycling companies. City scrap metal was also sold to area recycling companies, but not all of the money was turned over to the city. According to the complaint, Jared Gabiner, owner of Chicago Surplus and Recycling, told investigators that in 2010 he recorded 10 recycling drop offs by the city of Lake Geneva. Nine of the deliveries were from city-owned vehicles, and one from Hoeft’s personal vehicle (license plate HOEFT). Of the nine deliveries in city vehicles, Chicago Surplus and Recycling issued checks totaling $8,096.71. The city received two checks totaling $2,310.40. The remaining seven checks, totaling $5,786.31 were not turned over to the city, the complaint said. Street department employees told investigators that they hauled scrap metal, ballasts, street lights and the interiors from street light heads to Chicago Surplus and Recycling. Employees said they brought the money back to either Carstensen or Hoeft. That money supposedly went into a “slush fund,” kept in a lock box in Carstensen’s office that paid for parties and food for street department employees and for Carstensen’s cell phone bills, Hoeft told authorities.

Charges leave bad feelings for officials By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net A bad taste and a feeling of betrayal are lingering in the wake of charges filed against former Street Supervisor Ron Carstensen and former Street Department foreman Don Hoeft. “I feel hurt,” said City Administrator Dennis Jordan. Carstensen and Hoeft are charged in connection with a salt and sand barter deal with two companies, B&J Tree and Landscape, W2795 Krueger Road, Lake Geneva, and C&D Landscaping and Design, N4819 Bowers Road, Elkhorn.

The two companies received truckloads of salt and sand in a deal with Carstensen that city hall was not told about. Carstensen and Hoeft also reportedly kept a “slush fund” in Carstensen’s office Jordan Winkler from money collected by street department employees who took recyclable metals and used oil to recycling companies in Wisconsin and Illinois. City Attorney Dan Draper said the slush fund was recovered by investigators and was returned to the city. The amount in the slush fund was not immediately available. Mayor Jim Connors was traveling on business and could not be contacted before deadline. Lake Geneva buys a mixture of 20 percent salt and 80 percent sand from Walworth County for winter road traction. State law and county policy prohibit municipalities from selling sand and salt to private businesses and individuals. Jordan was one of the persons interviewed by police in connection with the charges against Carstensen and Hoeft. The street department is under the direct super-

vision of Jordan and Public Works Director Dan Winkler. Winkler did not return a phone call from the Regional News before deadline. According to complaint, Jordan gave Carstensen permisDraper Kordus sion to sell one load of sand and salt to B&J in 2010. The seven or eight tons of road mix was sold to B&J for $55 a ton. In a telephone interview, Jordan confirmed that he did give Carstensen permission to sell the leftover sand and salt. The city received the money for the sale. Jordan said that, at the time, he didn’t know that it was against county policy and state law to sell the salt and sand. However, Jordan said he told Carstensen that it was a one-time only deal. Jordan said he was also unaware that Carstensen had allegedly been sending sand and salt to B&J and C&D landscaping companies before and after he asked Jordan permission. In February this year, B&J was billed $19,000 for the salt and sand, which the company paid. Jordan said the charge was to balance the books for the salt and sand the city gave to B&J. “They knew they should have paid for it,” he said. In fact, he said, they never should have received the salt and sand in the first place. C&D did not return a call from the Regional News before deadline Tuesday. Robert D. Castleman, owner of B&J, said it is not uncommon for his company to barter with other companies. “I guess we won’t be bartering with municipalities anymore,” Castleman said in a telephone interview. The salt and sand was in exchange for services and materials that the city streets department would request in exchange, Castleman said. The idea was “one hand washes the other,” he said. Castleman said his company was conscientious about paying the $19,000 bill from Lake Geneva. He said the way he understood it, that covered the costs of all the salt and sand the city delivered to his company. “Our plate is clean,” he said. Castleman said his foreman was in charge of keeping the records and did not do a good job of it. He said the bartering eventually got out of hand Castleman said he’d like to keep a good relationship with Lake Geneva. City Attorney Dan Draper acknowledged that Jordan did in fact give Carstensen permission to sell a load of sand and salt to B&J. However, the investigation by the state Attorney General’s office apparently determined that the act was not intended to violate the law, he said. Alderman Bob Kordus, who chairs the city council’s public works committee, said he’s keeping an eye on what’s transpiring with the complaints. Kordus said he doesn’t recall seeing any bills from B&J and C&D crossing the committee’s table over the past few months. Kordus did not join the city council until this year. “I’m not aware of anything we’ve done with either company this year,” he said, referring to B&J and C&D landscaping companies. On the other hand, there is no indication of any action pending against either business, Kordus added. The situation is wait and see, he said. “I wouldn’t disqualify or prequalify them for anything,” Kordus said of the two landscaping firms.

Olivarez/ Newly released police reports Berlin attempted to talk to Guerrero, who was breathing short shallow breaths, and Walworth County Sheriff Deputy Edgar Resendez ran to his squad car to retrieve a medical bag. When Berlin was tending to Guerrero, Garcia came out of the home and was crying. When Resendez returned with the medical bag, Garcia began screaming at Olivarez in Spanish. Resendez, who speaks Spanish, told Berlin “that’s our supsect, pointing to Rafael,” the reports state. While in police custody, Olivarez told Berlin that “he has people that can take care of me and my family if I don’t help him, but it’s already too late for me, but my family may still have a chance...I might be in prison for the rest of my life but I got Mexicans that will take care of things for me out here.” When Berlin told Olivarez that he was being arrested for homicide, he asked who died. “I told him Ivan and he just stared at me while his eyes started tearing up,” the report states.

Reddy won’t rule on motion to dismiss By Robert Ireland RIreland@lakegenevanews.net ELKHORN — Judge David Reddy refused to rule on a motion to dismiss a homicide case until he could review the transcripts from the preliminary hearing. Travis Schwantes, the defense attorney for Rafael Olivarez, filed a motion to dismiss the charge of firstdegree intentional homicide because comments made by a key witness conflict in police reports and the criminal complaint. On May 4, Olivarez, 39, of Delavan, is accused of stabbing and killing his cousin, 31-year-old Ivan Guerrero, also of Delavan. In the early morning hours of Guerrero’s death, his wife, Brenda Garcia, told police Olivarez became belligerent with Guerrero. She also said she sawOlivarez covered in blood and holding a knife. According to the motion to dismiss, the criminal complaint states

that Garcia saw Olivarez stab her husband. Later Walworth County Detective Michael Lambert interviewed Garcia and, stated “she did not see the actual stabbing.” Garcia was also interviewed at the scene by Delavan Police Officer Richard Kendall. “The highlighted statement in the criminal complaint and the highlighted statement in Lambert’s report are diametrically opposed,” Schwantes wrote in a motion. “There is no way that both statements can be true.” During the motion hearing, Assistant District Attorney Haley Rea said that Delavan Police Det. Joaquin Alonzo recently interviewed Garcia. During that interview, which occurred after Schwantes filed his motion, Garcia said she didn’t see the actual stabbing but witnessed a number of events leading up to the incident. Schwantes said that the inaccurate statement was a key factor that

Court Commissioner Daniel Johnson considered when he found probable cause to bind Olivarez over for trial during a May 14 preliminary hearing. During a preliminary hearing, a judge or court commissioner must rule that a felony was committed and that the defendant probably committed it. Hearings in front of court commissioners are electronically recorded and Schwantes ordered a transcript from that hearing. Rea argued that without the inaccurate statement in the criminal complaint the state still had provided enough probable cause at the preliminary hearing to bind Olivarez over. “We are left with a preliminary hearing decision solely based on the fact that Mrs. Garcia saw the stabbing,” Schwantes said. Rea said she couldn’t comment on what factors lead to Johnson finding probable cause because she wasn’t part of that hearing. District Attorney Daniel Necci handled that hearing and was at a

conference during the motion hearing. Reddy said without testimony from Kendall and the transcript from the hearing he didn’t have enough information to make a ruling. “I want Mr. Necci here, officer Kendall here and a transcript from the preliminary hearing,” Reddy said before setting the matter over for July 10. During the hearing, Schwantes acknowledge that even if Reddy ruled in his client’s favor it wouldn’t end his client’s legal troubles. Had Reddy ruled to dismiss the case because of a defective criminal complaint, Schwantes said the state could have asked Reddy to keep Olivarez in custody while it prepared a new complaint. During the hearing, Rea said she did have a new complaint prepared. Schwantes said that coming into the hearing he was expecting the state to simply file a new complaint. Olivarez is in custody in the Walworth County jail in lieu of a $1 million cash bond.

Possible motive On May 9, Rebecca Perez went to the Delavan Police Department to talk about Guerrero’s death. Perez had learned that the argument between Olivarez and Guerrero began because of the death of her son, Jesse Perez. Rebecca Perez said that her son’s death was ruled a suicide by the Milwaukee Police Department. Police questioned Rebecca Perez on whether she had doubts on that ruling. “Perez said that her husband, who died in 2005, was mad at the situation and believed that Guerrero and Jesse may have had an argument and something happened,” the police reports state. On May 15, a friend of Guerrero, Robert Covarrubias, was interviewed by police. During that interview, Covarrubias said he was friends with Guerrero and said their friendship was so close that they were “brothers.” He said at the time of Jesse Perez’s death, he was at a party in Crystal City, Texas. He said Olivarez, who he had met previously through Guerrero, was also there. At this party, Olivarez questioned Covarrubias about Perez’s death. “Robert said that Olivarez was acting like a ‘detective,’” the police reports state.

Windmill Prairie finds new developer C&C Technologies Corp. buys 30 acres which had been approved for residential housing By Jade Bolack jbolack@lakegenevanews.net WALWORTH — It started with a conversation about real estate in Village President David Rasmussen’s office. “I kind of talked up how great Walworth is,” Rasmussen said. “He drove through the subdivision and liked it.” Carl Trent of Williams Bay, for C&C Technologies Corp., bought the Windmill Prairie subdivision, a defunct development owned by Talmer Bank. The subdivision is west of Walworth Elementary School and south of Beloit Street. “We looked at a few different areas,” Trent said in a phone interview June 23. “We thought it was time to get this developed. It’s a shame the way it was left.”

The property has about 65 single-family lots and four partially constructed duplexes. Trent said his priority is to finish the roads through the subdivision. “We need to finish the roads,” he said. “Then we need to finish those four duplexes.” Trent said he would probably maintain a similar project plan as what was originally planned for in the subdivision. Former plans for the subdivision included 69 family homes, 56 homes for the elderly and 34 row homes. Trent, who said he owns other similar developments, said he thinks he was the strongest bid on the subdivision of three potential buyers. He bought the 30-acre develop-

ment for about $800,000. Rasmussen said because of his relationship with Trent, he won’t be voting on any of the development proposals as Rasmussen they come to the village board. “Yes, I won’t be voting, but so what?” he asked. “Who’s going to have any opposition to the development?” Windmill Prairie construction was approved by the village board in early 2007. By 2010, construction had stopped and the subdivision was eventually foreclosed on. In October 2011, the Regional

News reported that a majority of revenue from the tax increment financing district would be used to improve the subdivision. Any future developer would have to

make the road, sewer and storm water improvements. Part of the former development plans included nearly 5 acres for a fire station.

Gordy’s celebrates 60 years By Jade Bolack jbolack@lakegenevanews.net FONTANA — It started with one boat. Effie, a 1948 Chris Craft 25-foot Sportsman, was captained by Gordon Whowell. He charged $1 for a cruise around the lake in the boat. According to Gordy’s Marine website, Gordon would tell stories of his love of boats and pursuits of having a good time while showing riders the lake. That was in 1955. Now, nearly 60 years later, Gordy’s Marine rents boats and watercraft all summer and serves food in the Boathouse and the Bait Shop Deli. The Gordy’s fleet includes all types of watercraft and a third generation of the Whowell family. Tom Whowell, Gordon’s son, called the days of Effie “humble beginnings.” “Effie was our first commercial boat,” Whowell said in a phone interview June 23. “She’s really one-of-a-kind. There were only about 250 of the boats made, and Effie is by far the best boat in the class. She’s been completely restored.” Effie is still on the dock in front of Gordy’s, but the business now rents speedboats and personal watercraft. Whowell worked at the marina during the summers he was in high school and college. “My brother did the mechanical operations,” he said. “I taught the skiing. My mother and father were down there.” The family slowly grew the business into what it is today. “The first 40 years were the boat rentals,” Whowell said. “Gordy had his own goals when he was running it. Now my kids have taken over and expanded their divisions. We’re working together, all with the best interest of the business in mind.” While in school, Whowell said

TOM WHOWELL, son of Gordy’s Marine founder Gordon Whowell, said the family’s boat, Effie, is part of the Gordy’s tradition. The boat often wins at classic boat shows because the Whowell family keeps it in such great condition.

“Effie was our first commercial boat,” Tom Whowell said. “She’s really one-of-a-kind. There were only about 250 of the boats made, and Effie is by far the best boat in the class. She’s been completely restored.” he wasn’t thinking about working full-time at Gordy’s. “Out of college, I was in the Navy, then I went to grad school,” he said. “At 27 or 28 (years old), I was just deciding then what to do. I have a master’s degree in English. My intention was to teach.” But Gordy’s called him back.

“There wasn’t any time to teach,” Whowell said. “I’ve worked here since, and I’ve never regretted it.” Education is a part of the Gordy’s philosophy, too. “Gordy’s hires a great number of people, and our managers spend a great deal of time teaching people how to tie up boats, how to interact with customers, how to treat people well,” Whowell said. “That education constantly continues.” Whowell estimated that Gordy’s hires an additional 125 employees for seasonal help on the piers and in the restaurants.

WALWORTH — The Walworth Elementary School Board approved one-year contracts for the interim administrative team during the June 23 board meeting. P a m Larson and Brent Wilson will return as interim administrator and principal for the 2014-15 school year while the board delays a Larson search to find permanent replacements. In May, District Administrator Pam Knorr resigned from the position after being on medical leave since Oct. 7, 2013. Wilson Larson, principal, was moved to the administrator position, and Wilson, sixthgrade math teacher, was moved to the principal position. “I don’t Freeman know what we would have done without you two,” School Board President Kelly Freeman said. “We’re so happy to have you on board for another year.” The Regional News received Larson and Wilson’s contracts through an open records request. The board reapproved Larson’s two-year contract for the

principal position from July 1, 2013, until June 30, 2015, with an addendum for the district administrator duties. Larson’s salary is set at $86,246.90 for the 2014-15 school year, and she’ll be paid an additional $100 per day she serves as administrator. Wilson’s contract is also for the principal position, from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015, and his salary is set at $80,293. Wilson has until Jan. 15, 2015, to notify the school board if he’d like to return to a full-time teaching position. The board also approved a collective bargaining agreement with the Walworth teachers’ union and raises for the district’s support staff. Larson said the collective bargaining agreement process was “delightful.” In recent years, the agreement hasn’t been approved until late in the school year and any raises were given retroactively. The Regional News requested copies of the collective bargaining agreement and the support staff raises. Larson responded to the records request that she would send these two documents “within the 10 working days window.”

Highway 14 Freeman said someone asked her earlier Monday what the school board was doing about the Department of Transportation plans for Highway 14 through the village. Freeman said she suggested the resident attend some village or school board meetings to have his voice heard. Board Clerk Mary Heyer said she was parked on the square recently with her car windows open. PLEASE SEE WALWORTH PAGE 5B

Bay women’s banquet raises $7,500 Money donated to fire department WILLIAMS BAY — In the near future, firefighters who get relief from the extremes of summer and winter weather while battling fires can thank the Williams Bay Women’s Banquet for the quick warm up or cool down. About 290 women attended an exclusive dinner, an annual event first celebrated 87 years ago, said Halina Marra, who was chairwoman for this year’s banquet. On May 6, the women met for good food, fellowship and some fun at the Lake Lawn Lodge. And along with all that, a silent auction and raffle helped the women raise $7,500, which the Williams Bay Civic League then donated to the Williams Bay Fire Department. Fire Chief Doug Smith said the Williams Bay department will use that money, along with a $100 donation from the Dr. Mark Brower family, to convert a fire department equipment truck into a relief vehicle. Smith said the department will add one or more misting fans to cool down firefighters on hot days and a heating chair to drive away the chill during cold weather. In the 87 years of the banquet, each banquet has had a unique theme that has never been repeated. Marra said this year’s

on an autumn morning in 1926 in the home of Mrs. Hazel Bjorge. She and Mrs. Hilda Hollister, Mrs. Oetjen, Mrs. Oscar Waterbury and Mrs. Eric Werner commis-

erated about how sad it was that they didn’t get together as often as they liked. Finally, Mrs. Hollister suggested setting aside one night a

year, when the women could get dressed up, go out with friends and have someone cook and serve them a meal. Mrs. Bjorge was immediately elected the first chairwoman of the Williams Bay Women’s Banquet. The first banquet was at the Rose Lane Lodge. Tickets were $1 each. Included with the meal were entertainment and speakers. The first banquet drew 101 Williams Bay women. Music was provided by Mrs. Rydell and Mrs. Theo Johnson, and the speakers that evening were Mrs. Ebba Beckus of Beloit, who was the principal of a girl’s school in China, and Mrs. John Blodgett of Lake Geneva, the National Women’s Club Wisconsin State Officer. At the end of the night, the committee asked those gathered for a 10-cent donation to purchase a white elm tree to plant in Edgewater Park. The committee also took a vote of all present and decided to make the banquet an annual affair. And so it has been, except for a period from 1943 to 1945, when the banquets were held in abeyance until the end of World War II. The banquet resumed in the spring of 1946 and has continued annually since. Julie Poplar is chairwoman for the 88th Williams Bay Women’s Banquet.

WILLIAMS BAY — It is said that every dog has its day. But this year, there will be no Dog Day in the Bay. Usually scheduled for the third Saturday in June, (last year’s was June 22) for the past five years, the Williams Bay Business Association, with the cooperation of the Williams Bay Recreation Department, the Williams Bay Civic League, Elkhorn Vet Clinic and the Lakeland Animal Shelter, sponsored a special day at Edgewater Park where humans celebrated their canine companions with a parade, costume contests and prizes. Jim D’Alessandro, president of the Williams Bay Business Association, said that this year, too many events in mid-June were drawing away volunteer time, making it difficult to schedule volunteer help for Dog Day. One of the events was a cancer walk at the George Williams College campus last week, he said. While this year’s Dog Day was cancelled, D’Alessandro said the business association is determined to bring it back next year with improvements.

Patriotic celebration at Calvary Community Church Calvary Community Church’s 2014 Patriotic Celebrations will be Saturday, June 28 at 7 p.m, Sunday, June 29 at 4 p.m. and Monday, June 30 at 7 p.m. The celebrations will feature the Cavalry Choir and Brass with special guest artist Tim Zimmerman and the King’s Brass.

Chicken Barbecue Saturday

Some kayaks launching into lake illegally

Fundraiser for fire department

Village may extend existing piers and build a new one on lakefront

By Jade Bolack jbolack@lakegenevanews.net WALWORTH — Part fundraiser, part sign of summer, the Walworth Fire Department will host its annual chicken barbecue Saturday, June 28 at 11 a.m. The chicken barbecue kicks off the cookout season at Heyer Park, a preview of the other fundraisers held there over the summer. Walworth Fire Chief Andy Long said visitors shouldn’t expect anything new at this year’s barbecue, and that’s a good thing. “We keep it simple,” he said. “Simple works for us.” This year, money raised will contribute to the department’s goal of a new fire truck. “We hope to order the truck by the end of the year,” Long said.

The department begins selling chicken at 11 a.m. ers but hasn’t reached its goal of $120,000 to purchase the truck. The truck will carry five firefighters and personal protective equipment, Long said. For the barbecue, firefighters and their families serve more than 1,000 chickens to residents and visitors in the park or with drive-thru service. Department volunteers are also willing to make local deliveries. To set up a delivery, call (262) 215-9908. The meal costs $8, featuring half a chicken, a baked potato, a roll, drink and ice cream. The firefighters will serve dinners until the chicken is gone.

Long said it typically ends around 6 or 7 p.m. The department has several firefighters designated to go if an emergency call comes in during the barbecue.

jbolack@lakegenevanews.net FONTANA — Some kayak users are launching into the Geneva Lake at Fontana illegally. Village Administrator Dennis Martin said a club of kayak users drove up and launched near the municipal boat launch without paying. The daily fee to launch a kayak or other nonmotorized boat is $7.50, and even when the launch ramp isn’t manned the village expects users to deposit money into the honor box. Lakefront and Harbor Committee Chairman David Prudden said he’s seen large groups of people and individuals launch without paying. During the June 18 committee meeting, Prudden said the first step is to call the kayak group that came and tell them to use the launch ramp. Martin said the Police Department has already placed a sign near the launch ramp telling users to pay.

Pier expansion The committee also requested Austin Pier Service bring cost estimates for expanding two municipal piers and building a third. Currently, piers two and three are shorter than the 200

Gordy’s/‘Lake Geneva tends to stay in people’s blood’ And those employees keep returning, too. During the June 21 anniversary celebration, Whowell said about 300 former employees returned to celebrate. “Lake Geneva tends to stay in people’s blood,” he said. “Our alumni are a part of the Lake Geneva area anyway, they have family here, other ties here. It wasn’t hard to get their attention about the event.” And some former employees have children working at Gordy’s now. “There are a lot of second-generation employees,” Whowell said. “We’re probably working on third generation soon.” The Whowell generations work hard to keep the family ties strong. “There has been some tension along the way,” Whowell said. “We have family meetings once a week. We take the time to organize the family and the business, so we can still go have dinner at someone’s house and it’s not always about work.” For Whowell, it’s hardly been work anyway. “I plan to stay at Gordy’s as long as I’m breathing,” he said. “I enjoy what I do. ... I try to spend a little time every day with the restaurant, with the sales and with our different divisions, but I don’t have a set schedule.” Whowell said there’s only one thing he’d really like to change about the job: the weather. “The weather is something we can’t fix,” he said. “Our business is really dependent on the weather, and when you set up for a great summer, sometimes it can be a disappointment and sometimes it turns out great.”

feet allowed by the DNR. M a r t i n said expanding those piers could add space for up to six slip rentals. Prudden called the expansion a Prudden “no -brainer” decision. Committee members said the best place for a new pier is between piers one and two, near the north end of the beach and the Lake Geneva Marine buildMartin ing. A new pier could hold nine or 10 slip rental spaces. Martin said the village closed last summer without renting all of its buoys, and more buoys are open this season as well. The village has trouble renting all the buoys, though there’s a waiting list for slip rentals. Building an additional pier, Martin said, would allow the village to get rid of some of the buoys, clearing the view for drivers going toward the lake on Fontana Boulevard.

Newpaper man’s photography on display By Jade Bolack jbolack@lakegenevanews.net WALWORTH — Fred Noer admits that his photography is a hobby, and he’s OK with that. It doesn’t stop him from bringing his camera with him every where he goes. “I was just driving by and saw the way the sunset was hitting the water,” he said of one photo of Delavan Lake. “I just stopped and took some photos.” Noer said he could dedicate more time to the business and marketing side of photography to move his hobby to a profession. “Art photography is challenging,” he said. “You have to get the work out there.” Former publisher of the Walworth Times, Noer still calls himself a newspaper man at heart. “I grew up using black and white photos for the paper, and that’s what I still use,” he said. His parents bought the Times in 1957, and Noer published the paper from 1980 to 1986. Several of Noer’s photos are currently on display at the Good Earth Church of the Divine at the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in East Troy. The display opened June 21, and Noer said there were 40 to 50 people there. His photos are part of the church’s sacred earth celebration, with rotating art shows for each season. Noer’s photos are quiet. The black and white film freezes a moment more than a color photo would. Instead of facial expression, there are silhouettes. Instead of movement, there is peace. The

Photo show To see Noer’s photos, visit the Michael Fields Institute, W2493 County Highway ES, East Troy, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

FRED NOER stands near some of his photos, part of the Good Earth Church’s celebration of the season. The gallery is open to the public at the Michael Fields Institute in East Troy. photos capture the stillness of the Geneva Lake area. He used a manual 1960s-era film camera, a relic from his years at the Times. “It’s a 35 mm,” he said. “It’s the same camera as from the paper. It was built to last.” Noer said the Leica brand camera, a German company founded in 1849, allows him to buy film in 100-feet rolls and use reloadable film cassettes.

The film is the cheapest part of photography, Noer said. It takes much more time developing the film than taking the photos. “Black and white processing is more forgiving than color developing,” he said. Noer said the most-used part of his dark room is the garbage can. “I often develop a photo and find I need to do it again,” he said. “But I stick with what I know. I

know how to develop photos. I don’t know how to (use) Photoshop.” He said he uses dodging and burning techniques to lighten or darken areas of photos, depending on what image he’s trying to achieve.

Short history Noer said he started taking photographs at racing events.

“I was taking photos for national and regional publications for drag racing events,” he said. “I used film for that, and I decided to not upgrade to digital. Digital photographers took over, and I had more time to do writing.” Now most of his photos are of Geneva Lake, though he said there is one drawback to it. “You can always see the far shoreline on the lake,” he said. “I like to look for foggy days. The fog obscures the far shore, so the foreground is accentuated.” Noer didn’t have formal training in photography. He learned as he went. “My father served as editor at the Daily Cardinal, a student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the 1930s,” he said. “His stepfather had a photography business.” When his parents bought the Times, Noer said he was “pressed into service” to take photos. Like a digital photographer, Noer said he always takes more than one photo when he’s shooting. “Because it’s manual, I set the f-stop, then go up and down steps,” he said. “I take a few shots at the different settings up and down. Most of the work is in the editing, after those photos are taken.”

COUNTY REPORT

Wisconsin faces population shortage By Chris Schultz cschultz@lakegenevanews.net Demography is destiny. Todd Berry, president of the Wisconsin Taxpayer Alliance, presented members of the Walworth County Economic Development Alliance with some stark figures that show the state will be on the slow end of population growth over the next 35 years. Berry was the featured speaker at WCEDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly breakfast meeting on Friday. Meanwhile, the population within the state will trend toward older ages, as the baby boomers push past retirement into the Social Security years. The nonprofit Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance usually concerns itself with levys, rates and budgets. Berry said delving into population and census data is not the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usual line of research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different issue for the alliance,â&#x20AC;? Berry told the 25 or so who gathered for the meeting. However, larger populations usually mean larger economies, he said. And population growth, or the lack of it, will impact tax revenues for the state and local governments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look back, you can see a tight link between population growth and the economy,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. Essentially, graphs showing economic growth and contraction usually follow the same general trends as population growth and contraction, he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wisconsin is on the cusp of an unprecedented period of workplace change,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. W i sc on si n is projected to be on the slow Berry end of population growth, Berry warned. According to information provided by Berry, demographers estimate that between 2010 and 2040 Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population will increase by 14.5 percent. By comparison, Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population grew 14.5 percent between 1992 and 2010. So, it will take another 30 years to match the population growth of the previous 18 years. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population makeup will also shift dramatically. Persons 65 and older will increase from 13.7 percent of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population in 2010 to 23.7 percent in 2040, Berry said. In 2010, Wisconsin had 23 seniors for every 100 workers, in 2040, that ratio will be 45 to 100, according to The Wisconsin Taxpayer, the allianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazine. Some good news is that Walworth is expected to experience moderate growth between now and 2030 (under 10 percent) along with 17 other counties, including Milwaukee, Dane, Rock and Waukesha counties. The big gainers will be St. Croix, Sauk, Brown and Kenosha coun-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sound from the trucks is so loud,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can really see the impact (of changing the highway layout) until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right there.â&#x20AC;? Heyer suggested that the next DOT meeting about the highway plans be held at the village square so everyone can experience the trucks driving around them.

Educator effectiveness Interim Principal Brent Wilson said all teachers are required to create a student learning objective for the 2014-15 school year, which rates the effectiveness of each teacher based on teacher practices and student results. During the 2013-14 school year, Wilson said the teachers appreciated having time to complete a test student learning objective to learn how the program worked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a lot of professional development at the beginning of the year to go over the requirements,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. The student learning objectives are mandated by the Department of Public Instruction. Teachers are evaluated based on the student learning objective at least every three years. According to the DPI website, results from these evaluations will only be available to the teachers and the district administration.

to come out of recession before most of the country. However, compared to the national economy, Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy has been underperforming since 2001. Part of that trend started more than 30 years ago, when the state suffered through two recessions, both which were worse for the state than the more recent Great Recession of 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One-seventh of the manufacturing jobs were lost and 100,000 people left the state,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. He said it was an emigration that the state had never experienced before. While Wisconsin has since made up the raw number of people who left, it has not been able to make up the impact those people would have had if they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t left the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy, Berry said. Wisconsin is not going to grow out of this alone. The predictor of future population, the statewide schools census, has remained nearly flat since 1997, Barry said. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deceptive, since the state initiated incentives for schools to create 4-year-old kindergartens. As the population ages and more leave the workforce than nter it, fewer will be buying houses, and more people will be buying things that are exempt from state sales taxes. There will be labor shortages. Household formation will go down. Consumer behavior will change.

And it will affect tax revenues. If the workforce isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t growing and consumer behavior is changing, it will mean that sales, income and property tax revenues probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow, either, Berry said. Dave Bretl, Walworth County administrator, asked Berry what local governments can do to compensate for the coming reduction in local tax collections. Berry said that the state has pretty much frozen its income tax distributions to local governments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It appears local governments are responding by doing two things,â&#x20AC;? said Berry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are incentives for local governments to borrow. Or, they look for ways to end run the tax system, and implement user fees.â&#x20AC;? Berry said there are opportunities for creating efficiencies through consolidation. That may face some resistance, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People give up their local authority with great reluctance in this state,â&#x20AC;? he said. Berry is also an advocate of giving more local control to cities, villages and towns. If counties wish to dissolve and leave local control to municipalities, they should have the ability to do that, he said. In the meantime, Berry offered some direct, personal and tongue-in-cheek advice: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think of ways to get your kids to stay in Wisconsin and be very smart,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ties, according to taxpayer alliance figures. St. Croix and Kenosha counties are on the borders with Minnesota and Illinois respectively, and are expected to gain inmigration as population leaves the heavily urbanized areas of Minneapolis and Chicago. Sauk and Brown counties have young populations and they are also expecting some in-migration from surrounding counties that are projected to lose population. While Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population challenge has been known for nearly a decade, the political debate has frozen around jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our office, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very frustrated listening to the political dialogue in the state,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. Both sides of the aisle are cherry picking facts to make their points, when the picture is more complex than that, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have all the politicos fighting over jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Berry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can create jobs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til the cows come home, but if they all pay $4 an hour, you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accomplished much.â&#x20AC;? And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fill jobs if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have people, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To paraphrase Barbra Streisand, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;People, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need people,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Berry said. Berry gave some background on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic trends. Wisconsinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy pretty much follows the national economy, he said. Wisconsin tends to go into recession before the rest of the country, and it tends

WALWORTH COUNTY COURT

Sex offender faces child porn charges A registered sex offender was charged June 4 with six counts of possession of child pornography. Matthew S. Rollie, 19, town of Geneva, was convicted in November of exposing a child to harmful materials and misdemeanor impersonating a peace officer. In that case, Rollie was charged after he chatted with a 12-year-old boy on Facebook, and, during that conversation, Rollie asked the boy to take and send him naked pictures. During the chat, Rollie told the boy that he was a Delavan police officer and was off of work because he was hurt during an on-duty accident. In that case, Rollie, who according to the sex offender reg-

istry also goes by “No Bark Riley,” was sentenced to probation and nine-months in jail with workrelease privileges. Police began investigating Rollie for possession of child pornography during those cases. Each count of possession of child pornography, carries a maximum sentence of 25 years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines. He also faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three years of initial confinement for each charge. Rollie is currently being held in the Walworth County jail on the previous sentence and a cash bond. According to the criminal complaint on the child porn charges: During the investigation into

the case of exposing a child to harmful materials, police searched Rollie’s home in the town of Geneva. During that search police Rollie seized a cell phone and obtained another cell phone from Rollie’s probation agent. Both of those phones were linked to a Google email address and the cell phone number was linked to Rollie’s Facebook account. Police located another Google email address on Rollie’s Facebook account.

The Department of Homeland Security obtained information from an image sharing website, which reported that child pornography was downloaded to both Google email addresses. A special agent with the Department of Homeland Security learned that Rollie’s account with the image sharing account was disabled for distributing child pornography. According to the criminal complaint: On June 3, police interviewed a boy about his relationship with Rollie. The child told police that he and Rollie regularly chatted on Facebook and Rollie asked the child to send him pictures of his penis.

The boy said Rollie has sent him pictures of marijuana and offered to get the child the drug. The child told police that Rollie offered to videotape himself having sex with his girlfriend and that he would send the child the video. On June 23, the boy told police that he met Rollie on Facebook in January or February. The two met face-to-face at the McDonald’s in Lake Geneva in April or May. After hanging out at the McDonald’s, the boy and Rollie walked to the bathroom at Library Park. At the park, Rollie unsuccessfully attempted to call someone to buy marijuana. Rollie also asked the child to expose himself, but the boy refused.

Instead of jury, Judge Reddy will decide outcome By Robert Ireland RIreland@lakegenevanews.net A 51-year-old Whitewater man, who allegedly told police during questioning on a child sexual assault that he found soiled diapers sexually gratifying, is set for an Oct 13 and 14 court trial. Jay E. Zabel, 445 N. Jefferson St., is accused of sexually assaulting two young children and exposing himself to a third. He’s officially charged with three felonies, and if convicted of all the charges he faces up to 123 1/2 years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines. A court trial is held in front of a judge instead of a jury. The judge, in this case Judge David Reddy, determines the verdict after listening to testimony and reviewing evidence. The court trial was requested by Zabel’s attorney, James Duquette.

Prosecutors didn’t object to Duquette’s request. Zabel has pleaded not guilty by reason of mentally disease or defect to all three charges. Zabel After evaluating Zabel, a state-appointed doctor didn’t support his plea of not guilty by mental disease or defect request. However, Duquette has since hired a private doctor to complete a second evaluation. There are two parts to trials in which defendants enter pleas of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. During the first part of the trial, a jury — or in this case Reddy — determines whether the defendant is guilty or not guilty of the charged crimes. If the defendant is found guilty, a second part of the trial ensues and the jury or judge determine whether the defendant can be held accountable for the crimes because of the

mental disease or defect. According to the criminal complaint: A Whitewater police detective interviewed Zabel during a child sexual assault investigation. During that interview, Zabel told the detective that he is sexually attracted to children who are between the ages of infant and 3-years-old and that he wants help for this problem. Zabel was the babysitter for the boys he was allegedly molesting. A child identified, as Victim 1 in court reports, is a boy born in 2012, and he was allegedly sexually touched by Zabel while Zabel changed the baby’s diaper. Victim 2, a boy that was born in 2010, was also allegedly molested by Zabel. Victim 3, who was born in 2008, walked in on Zabel while he was masturbating in an unlocked bathroom. Zabel also told police that he was purchasing diapers for two different families, and trading the new diapers for soiled ones. Zabel told police he found soiled diapers sexually gratifying.

spoke to Schmidt’s sister, who said Schmidt had an altercation with their brother. She said Schmidt had since locked herself in the home. When police spoke to Schmidt, she smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and glassy eyes. The officer asked Schmidt about her missing tooth, and the woman felt inside her mouth and said “oh God, I lost a tooth?” The wife of Schmidt’s brother told police that Schmidt had attacked her husband. The officer could see bite wounds on the man’s body. Inside of Auora Lakeland Medical Center, Schmidt blew her nose on her hand. She then flung her hand

toward the deputy, and the mucus landed on the deputy.

COURT REPORTS Fontana woman faces felony theft charge A 63-year-old Fontana woman is accused of pocketing cash she obtained from booking rooms at the Lake Lawn Resort. Leslie V. Beukena has been charged with theft from a business setting in an amount greater than $10,000. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years imprisonment and $25,000 in fines. According to the criminal complaint: When Lake Lawn Resort reviewed its records, it learned that Beukena would charge a customer for a room, but would go into the computer and refund the charge.

The resort was able to collect information on deleted records. The deleted records showed a number of transactions in which Beukena would book a room, refund it and delete the reservation completely. There were also rooms listed at no charge. A representative at the resort indicated to police that the money taken exceeded $10,000. On Nov. 24, 2013, Beukena met with police. She admitted to taking money from the resort. She said she wasn’t sure how much she took, but she said it was more than $1,000 but less than $10,000. Beukena told police she took money the entire time she worked there, from between 2008 and 2013. She also said she gave out at least 50 free rooms.

AROUND THE COMMUNITY

Battle with cancer turns into performance By Jade Bolack jbolack@lakegenevanews.net GENEVA — Rex Wilkinson has written music before. A retired middle school music teacher, Wilkinson often wrote graduation songs as his students moved to high school. Since 2011, his songs have become more personal. “While I was in the ICU, I felt this call to tell my story,” Wilkinson said. The story he readily shares starts the day before Thanksgiving in 2011. Wilkinson said he thought he might have depression. His friends and family told him he wasn’t acting like himself. “I was in the shower and felt really dizzy,” he said. “I ended up fainting, and I was out for a few seconds. My doctor told me to go to the emergency room, where I had a CAT scan.” The scan showed Wilkinson had a golfball-sized brain tumor. Wilkinson documented his journey from the shower through treatment to recovery, with music and story. He’s per-

formed the stories and music a few times, and now he’s coming to the Chapel on the Hill. “I was completely shocked,” Wilkinson said. “Shortly after that, my reaction was to pray, and that’s what I’ve been doing the whole journey Wilkinson since then.” The tumor was removed at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, but Wilkinson’s troubles didn’t end. “The area where the staples were started bleeding,” he said. “(The doctors) went back in and cleaned out an infection. I was on antibiotics for six months. In the summer of 2012, I noticed bleeding again.” Doctors removed part of his skull, cleaned it and replaced it. The infection returned. “They (eventually) replaced the bone flap with a composite piece,” Wilkinson said. He then completed rounds of chemo-

therapy for about a year. “Since then, I’ve gone in about every three months for blood tests and an MRI,” he said. “They’re just monitoring the status.” Now, Wilkinson is using his fight with and treatment of the cancer as a way to give hope to others in similar situations. “I wrote the narrative while I was recovering,” he said. “My wife and daughter helped with the editing.” His wife, Carol, cries when she hears him tell the story. “It’s been well-received,” Wilkinson said. “I hope that people will be inspired and uplifted. My wife cries every time. My daughter has cried.” Carol, and Wilkinson’s daughters, Amy and Elizabeth, are also part of the performance. “I’ve presented this as a talk at church, but I wanted to try other venues,” he said. Now, it’s nine of his original songs, three of which were written while he was in recovery, and Wilkinson sharing the journey from the slip in the shower to now. “Since the cancer diagnosis, I’ve really

One of the songs, titled ‘Let God be God,’ really encapsulates the entire story in one song.” Wilkinson and Carol were both teachers in the Chicago suburbs. After 34 years, they retired and live in downtown Chicago, but Wilkinson said he’s spent most of his weekends in the Lake Geneva area. During the summer, he plays piano on Wednesday and Sunday nights at the Mars Resort on Lake Como.

Local organization makes an impact in Africa Breaking the cycle of poverty may seem like a daunting task, but one local organization has made it their mission and is reaping great results from their efforts. Children’s World Impact (CWI), an organization founded in 2006 by Tyson & Jenny Ray of Elkhorn, is committed to taking care of orphans and widows in their distress, and to impact the lives of the neglected. Most recently, that impact has carried their focus to the Ullo village in Ghana, Africa, where CWI has partnered with a local organization called the Ullo Widows Associaton in Development (UWAID). This organization, along with CWI’s involvement, is helping dozens of widows

in the Ullo area provide a source of sustainable income for their families and education for their children. Currently, CWI is raising money to build a kindergarten/preschool/daycare facility for the children of these widows so they can continue earning a living to sustain their families. Nearly $20,000 was raised and construction has already begun. An additional $20,000 is needed to complete the project. For more information on Children’s World Impact or to learn how you can get involved, visit their website at www.ChildrensWorldImpact.org or contact the CWI office at (262) 686-3131.

Health Information Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s safe drinking water hotline (800-426-4791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population.

To obtain a summary of the source water assessment please contact, Tim Boss at (262) 275-6648.

Educational Information The sources of drinking water, both tap water and bottled water, include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: • Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations and wildlife. • Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally- occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming. • Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and residential uses. • Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff and septic systems. • Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which shall provide the same protection for public health.

Health effects for any contaminants with MCL violations/Action Level Exceedances Contaminant LEAD

Health Effects Infants and children who drink water containing lead in excess of the action level could experience delays in their physical or mental development. Children could show slight deficits in attention span and learning abilities. Adults who drink this water over many years could develop kidney problems or high blood pressure.

Additional Health Information Nitrate in drinking water at levels above 10 ppm is a health risk for infants of less than 6 months of age. High nitrate levels in drinking water can cause blue baby syndrome. Nitrate levels may rise quickly for short periods of time because of rainfall or agricultural activity. If you are caring for an infant you should ask advice from your health care provider. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Walworth Waterworks is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Information on Monitoring for Cryptosporidium and Radon Our water system did not monitor our water for cryptosporidium or radon during 2013. We are not required by State or Federal drinking water regulations to do so.

Lake Geneva Regional News Featuring Badger, Big Foot and Williams Bay High Schools

Freshman a star in the classroom and on the links

C

It’s kickball season

And his brother is following in his footsteps By John Halverson jhalverson@lakegenevanews.net A picture ran in the Regional News in 2008 that is a precursor to what’s happened since. The caption read: LAKE GENEVA BROTHERS Jonathan Duggan, 9, and his 7-year-old brother, Connor, are tearing up the links this summer as members of the Wisconsin PGA Junior Pepsi Golf Tour. A year later, the Regional News featured a story about the brothers. “Every once in a while, you see kids who can compete at the same level as adults,” the story said. “John and Debbie Duggan are able to witness that firsthand with their two sons, Jonathan, 10 and Connor, 9.” At the time, Jonathan and Connor could drive the ball off the tee nearly a whopping 200 yards. They’ve grown a lot since then, not only in stature but in talent — Jonathan can now drive it 260 yards. The only thing that hasn’t grown is their golf score. That keeps on going down. Jonathan, now a freshman at Badger High School, was recently named to the 1st team all-conference golf team. It’s a noteworthy honor for any high school student, but it’s downright amazing for someone so young. His average for the year 80.75, despite some tough weather conditions for most of the spring.

JONATHAN DUGGAN, a freshman at Badger High School, was recently named to the 1st team all-conference golf team. As a freshman, he broke his previous low score four times including shooting a 74 at Hawk’s View, a 75 at Geneva National and a 76 at Riverside Golf Club in Janesville. What makes Jonathan, who started the game when he was 3, even more special is that he has been mentioned even more in the Regional News for his academic accomplishments. Scrolling through the Regional News electronic files, there are also streams of Honor Rolls with Jonathan’s name on them. Back in 2011, when he was in sixth grade, Jonathan was among eight math whizzes from Lake Geneva Schools, who were winners at the Regional Math Meet. Both Duggan boys took home first in their age groups at that event, which involved hours of after-school preparation. Both Duggan boys have been lucky enough to be chosen to represent Lake Geneva Schools in both the math meet and academic bowl every year their grade level was involved. Just last month Connor won first place in the individual and his team took first at the state math meet in Madison. Connor exceeded the 300 mark in the math maps testing and actually

takes a high school math class even though he’s not yet a freshman. Connor also won the Fuller Boutelle Award. The student receiving this award has shown “outstanding citizenship, scholarship, and community service” along with academic excellence. Jonathan’s GPA was as stellar as his golf score last year, 4.2 first semester and 4.3 second. How does he manage to juggle school and golf and his other sport, basketball? “There’s a lot of time management involved,” he told the Regional News in an email. “I know that school always comes first and that there’s time for all the other stuff once I get my school work done.” It was especially difficult for Jonathan this spring as he missed more than 10 days of school to take part in golf tournaments. “It was quite chaotic, but it definitely helped that my teachers were flexible,” he said. “I had golf practice after school for two hours every day that I didn’t have a tournament, so I would always get my work in on the course, too.” PLEASE SEE GOLF STAR PAGE 2C

Cactus League team records first win By John Halverson jhalverson@lakegenevanews.net “How sweet it is.” That’s how Legion Cactus League manager Rick Schiltz characterized his team’s first win of the year against Hebron. Playing at Molitor Field Monday, night Lake Geneva won 7-6. It put the team’s record at 1-5 for the year. “It was almost a perfect game,” Schiltz said. The home team knocked out 13 hits and held Hebron to 3. Errors hurt them as they have all year, but this time they overcame three of them and their opponent helped with four of their own. “The bats are coming alive,” Schiltz said. “All that hard work is starting to pay off.” Jeremy Stenger and Mason Krede teamed up on the mound.

Krede had the game winning hit, one of three on the day. Stenger had two hits including a double and John Keefe led the team with three hits. As Schiltz said, “everyone hit.” The Cactus League team will play Big Foot at Molitor Field again on Friday. Lake Geneva opened the season on May 14 with a 13-1 loss to Big Foot 2 at Molitor Field in Lake Geneva. They were held to two hits, one by Tim Weisse and the other by Dawson Comer. Stenger gave up 10 runs in two innings but only five were earned as Lake Geneva committed five errors. They lost to Clinton 15-3 on May 19. Lake Geneva was down 6-1 after the first inning. Weisse had two hits and Rob Potter one for the only two hits against Clinton, but they drew three walks. PLEASE SEE LEGION PAGE 2C

Legion/1st win features solid hits Caleb Johnson had a tough time on the mound giving up 11 runs in 1 2/3 innings. Ten of the runs were earned and he walked nine while striking out three. Krede fared better giving up only one run in 2 1/3 innings. Stenger, Krede, Logan Cudlip and Ben Weise were credited with some good plays in the field by Schiltz. On May 21, Lake Geneva lost 19-3 against North Boone, but the game could have been different had Lake Geneva not left the bases loaded with one out twice and failed to score. Nick Pavlicek went 2 for 3 with a run scored and the local team had six hits all together. Stenger came in relief and gave up only two earned runs in three innings. Unfortunately, four Lake Geneva errors led to 10 unearned runs. Last Monday, Lake Geneva lost to Delavan Township 19-1 giving up only 11 hits but committing five errors. Lake Geneva was held hitless despite scoring a run; it drew five walks. Stenger gave up six hits over three innings while striking out seven.

and Jordan Spieth, he doesn’t really pattern his game after any individual golfer. “I mainly focus on making all aspects of my game positive,” he said. Is he a cautious or risktaking golfer? “I try to always play smart, he said. “I will be aggressive though when a pin location is attackable and allows for birdies to be made. Otherwise, I just aim for the approximate center of the green, sometimes favoring the side that the pin is on.” Jonathan praises Connor’s game. “His game is always in good shape, whether he’s hitting the ball good or not, because he’s so good at chipping and putting,” he said of his younger sibling, who will be a freshman next year. Jonathan is excited about having his brother on the team next year along with Big Foot transfer Luke Bourneuf and the returning members of the golf team including Alec Jacobsen, Grant Fogt and Jackson Rademaker. “Our golf team has enormous potential and is going to be really competitive. Between me and Connor though, we don’t really compete with each other,” he said. “We enjoy practicing, often more than five hours a day at Hawk’s View Golf Club. We also like to assist each other and make each other better because nothing makes us happier than seeing each other succeed.”

automatic inside seven feet last year. Jonathan’s tournament experience when he was younger has paid off in high school golf as he doesn’t seem to have the nervousness that most freshmen experience. “I stayed much more optimistic this year on the course, even when things weren’t going my way,” he said. “There were some rounds where I had a bad hole and/or a big number right away in my first three or four holes where I could have given up and let the round shoot upward toward 90 really fast but I kept my mind together and contained them to low 80s rounds.” He even had a round at Abbey Springs where he had a triple bogey 7 to start out the day and had another 7 midway through the round, but was two under par the other 16 holes, including three birdies en route to a three-over-par 75. Jonathan knows he’s not yet a finished product. “I would like to improve my iron play, which kind of lacked this year compared to other years. My long irons in particular were just not working for me this spring,” he said. “I’m also working on my course management as that is a key factor in shooting low scores. I got a lot of help with my course management from Coach DeShambo this spring in the tournaments and I expect to keep improving it over the summer.” While he’s a fan of professionals Steve Stricker

Former Central-Denison teacher, now Lake Geneva Middle School teacher Aaron Zorn, who coached the team while teaching at Central-Denison, said the work ethic of those involved was a key to their success. That same work ethic helps explain Jonathan’s golf success. After a tournament win last year, Badger head coach Dave DeShambo praised his prodigy. “He’s been really good this year. His finishes in the big tournaments have been really, really good. There’s a lot of teams and a lot of players who are older and have a little more experience, but he’s gone out to every big tournament and played well. He’s just rock solid and he fights. He just keeps battling and doesn’t make a lot of mistakes.” Before the season, DeShambo said he wasn’t sure Duggan and his other freshman star, Jackson Rademaker, would be able to compete against the more experienced upper-classmen on opponents’ teams. “But they’ve been really good,” DeShambo said. “I’ve got a great group of guys. They love to play golf they love to practice. Which makes it a whole lot easier.” What’s the best part of Jonathan’s game? “I thought my driver and short putting were really good for me this year, and the driver helped me especially because that always used to be the worst club in my bag for me,” he said. Putting was almost

TWO SWIMMERS UNITE. Area architect and former swimmer Tom Kincaid and Adolph Kiefer, once a world renowned swimmer, were pictured when they got together a year or so ago. Kincaid met Kiefer when Kincaid was a young swimmer and diver on the University of Iowa swim team. Kiefer was one of his heroes having once held 17 world records. Kiefer invented the “flip turn” still used by swimmers today. They met when Kincaid was in college and reconnected later when Kincaid was designing pools and Kiefer was inventing state of the art pool equipment. Kiefer is 96 and still swims for an hour each day. He was recently featured in the Chicago Tribune. As for Kincaid, he cracked that the only time he swims anymore is “when I fall off my boat.”

Lake Geneva Regional News Featuring Letters to the Editor, Obituaries and Community Matters

D

District can’t be blamed for security measures He’s damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t. Local school district Superintendent Jim Gottinger recently received some bad publicity from a parent. The parent wanted to chaperone his child to an event, but discovered he needed to provide his Social Security number to the district so they could perform a proper background check. He felt that an alternative means of identification ought to suffice. The parent’s ire was shared with a wildeyed website called wisconsindailyindependent.com. When we contacted Gottinger for a comment, he seemed a bit defensive — and understandably so. Anyone who watches the news knows that school security is a hot button issue. Every time some horrible event occurs, fingers get pointed at what could be done better, and rules tighten up. That’s the case in Lake Geneva, too. Last year a parent wanting to be involved in an organization called Watch D.O.G.S. was found to be a registered sex offender.

D.O.G.S. is an acronym We don’t apologize for Dads of Great Students, a for running stories on the national organization designed events, but they no doubt in part to provide schools with created angst on the part of male role models who greet the district administration students at school and help in as well.

However, he was still track down an abuse allegation in Washington required to notify the sex offender registry of state, especially because the man was never his participation in the program. He failed to convicted. Even the county District Attorney’s do so and was punished with probation as a Office didn’t immediately get details of that result. case. Then, several weeks ago a janitor at Badger Following the D.O.G.S. incident, the district High School was charged with a sexual offense has contracted with a national security orgatoward a student. nization to expand In that case, a “Most of us grew up in an era when background checks background check from just employparents could walk into schools had been done but ees to volunteers as without drawing anything more failed to turn up a well.That organizathan a friendly greeting.” prior sexual abuse tion requires a Social allegation in another Security number to state. ensure a complete investigation. Understandably, Gottinger is a little touchy It’s unfortunate to be sure. You wouldn’t about all the publicity these two events gener- think you’d need NSA-level clearance for an ated. innocent program like D.O.G.S., and you

wouldn’t think you’d need to do a nationwide search to discover if an allegation was made about someone even if they weren’t convicted. But that’s the way it is these days. Most of us grew up in an era when parents could walk into schools without drawing anything more than a friendly greeting. But each time an incident occurs more bullet proof windows get installed and more people undergo security checks. I think Gottinger is doing what he needs to do. If it takes a Social Security number to ensure the safety of kids, so be it. I understand the parent’s concern. So does Gottinger. But Gottinger’s first responsibility is the safety of children under his custodial care, not the privacy concerns of a parent. It’s hard to argue that a superintendent has gone too far in making sure students are safe. Parents have a choice. They can trust that a school district and a security company will keep their Social Security number secure. Or they can choose not to go on a field trip. It’s a reality we all have to deal with. Halverson is editor and general manager of the Regional News.

When Social Security isn’t enough Dear W.C., I was told by someone at my church to contact you about my current situation. I am a 77-year-old senior citizen living on Social Security. I was doing handy man work here and there to make ends meet before I had my stroke six months ago. It has been a long recovery. I am able to drive again, but I do not have enough money for gas. I can barely pay for rent, and I am behind in my utilities. I had a little saved for my retirement, but that was used up in a few months. I hope I can return to doing my handy man work soon, but I am afraid my utilities will be disconnected by then. All this stress and worry over my financial situation makes me feel sick and anxious.

Dear readers, I have found many senior citizens unable to get by on their Social Security. My own mother would never have been able to get by on her own for so many years without my help.

I watched her struggle to stand for hours as a beautician on her arthritic knees and hips just because she knew she needed the little bit of extra income she earned from her job. She had so much pride she would not even ask her own son for help, but I always made sure she was well cared for without her having to ask. One day I finally convinced her to retire after 52 years as a beautician. My mother never made a lot of money but she loved those she served. I have found many of our senior citizens have this same pride and do not easily ask for our assistance. When they do ask, their situation is often times worse

than they tell me. This was the situation I walked into with this senior gentleman. I arrived for my visit and found this senior gentleman living in a terribly run-down home. The front stoop and stairs were falling away from the house and tilted so badly I wondered how he even navigated them after a stroke. Several windows were cracked and the front door did not even latch properly. I knocked and waited as I heard someone shuffling slowly to the door. The door was opened a crack and then thrown open as the gentleman evidently recognized who I was. He smiled and said, “Well I’ll be. You are for real. I always see your face in the paper but never thought I would see you at my front door.” I accepted his invitation into the small dimly lit home. After a quick tour of the small home, and noting the condition of the home, we sat down to talk. I asked him how his recovery was coming along. He shared with me how he had not known he was even having a stroke and waited

medical bills and utility bills were taking most of his Social Security. He did not have enough to cover the rent that seemed high for the rundown home he was living in. I asked who his landlord was and once I heard the familiar name I suggested we find a better rental. The man said his “lady friend” had told him she had a room he could rent whenever he was able to move. He said, “She told me I could stay there for free but I know she has her own financial struggles. I would pay her a fair rent for that room and we could split the utilities. It would be great for both of us.” I offered to call his landlord to see about getting out of the lease. It took some persuading on my part, and I offered to pay the one month overdue rent the elderly gentleman owed. Looking around I could see very few belongings but knew he would need help with moving these items. I had some volunteers I knew could help him with this move. PLEASE SEE TIME IS NOW PAGE 4D

COMMUNITY & COMMENTARY

High school memories: From typing class to football This column is another “slice of life” of one aspect of Lake Geneva’s history almost a half century ago. I think that it is important to prepare these “slices of life” for the edification of current residents and future generations who might have some interest in Lake Geneva’s history. As I was doing research on Lake Geneva’s history in the 19th century, I very much regretted that almost no firsthand accounts of what life was like then have survived except for James Simmons’ brilliant recollections that form the basis of his superb Annals of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, 1835-1897. Indeed, one can today stand in front of the “new” high school component of the CentralDenison School complex and wonder what it was like when it was the city’s high school a half century ago. Unfortunately, the “old” Lake Geneva High School just to the east of the “new” high school no longer exists. The “new” Lake Geneva High School, con-

structed by the local firm of Reinert and Malsch, opened its doors in 1929. It served faithfully as Lake Geneva’s High School until 1958 when Badger High School opened. A few of the teachers in the “new” high school still survive, including Clyde Boutelle who lives in Beloit, and Doug Gerber, who lives in Lake Geneva. Both had been star football players when they attended LG High. The last principal of Lake Geneva High, who was also the first principal of Badger High School, Karl Reinke, lives on Clover Street in Lake Geneva. Over the past few years, several other teachers at LGHS have passed away, including Duane Morris, Byron Bell and Bob Petranek. I should state “up front” where my perspective on Lake Geneva High School is coming from. Put quite simply, I loved Lake Geneva High School. My parents, uncle, and aunt had all graduated from LGHS, but only my father had attended the “new” high School. LGHS was

only three blocks from my house and I walked “hunting and pecking.” I received a “D” and to and from the high school every morning and never learned to touch type. My general science class, taught by David afternoon and also walked home for lunch at noon and returned to school at 1 p.m. for the Benedict, was excellent. He was a very good afternoon classes. I was also a member of the teacher, and I greatly enjoyed the class. I managed to survive LGHS football and baseball teams and still have the “let- “I recall staring out the my algebra class, taught by Eugene Joyce, who had been ters” that I won. window at Madison an officer in the U.S. Army The LGHS principal in Street in Mrs. Kline’s Air Force during World War 1956-1957 was Theodore Kitze typing class, wishing II.

LETTER

Opening doors to higher education It’s working? The benefits of education after high school are numerous. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, increased educational achievement is directly correlated to higher earnings and a lower likelihood of unemployment. I have supported several initiatives undertaken during the most recent legislative session to help make the cost of higher education more f lexible, accessible and affordable. Earlier this month, the University of Wisconsin System and the Wisconsin Technical College System signed the Universal Transfer Agreement, which allows students to transfer up to 48 core general education credits between the two systems starting on July 1, 2014. This historic agreement will allow students to continue on their degree path instead of being forced to retake classes that did not transfer between the institutions. It also lowers costs by allowing students to start at a technical col-

lege, where tuition costs are lower, and finish their bachelor’s degree at a four-year university. The UW Flex Option is a new, innovative program through the UW-System and UW-Extension. It allows for a more personalized and convenient way for adults and non-traditional students to earn a degree while balancing other aspects of a busy life. The Flex Option focuses on what a person knows, not the time they spent learning. This unique focus allows progress to be made on a degree by using what is already known from work experience, military training, previous coursework and other training experiences. In this program, participants draw on their knowledge to pass assessments at a pace based on what works best for them. Additionally, for the first time in the history of the UW-System, a two-year tuition freeze was enacted.

This was accomplished during the 2013-2015 state budget, and it is very likely that another tuition freeze will be considered in the 2015-2017 state budget. Tuition freezes provide needed predictability and affordability for students and their families. I will continue to support initiatives that increase the f lexibility, accessibility and affordability of higher education in Wisconsin. Representative Amy Loudenbeck (R-Clinton) represents eastern Rock and western Walworth counties in the Wisconsin State Assembly. She can be reached at rep.loudenbeck@legis.wi.gov and (608) 266-9967.

Maybe not so much The Americans for Prosperity Foundation is blanketing Wisconsin with $900,000 in media ads to convince Wisconsinites that Gov. Walker’s policies are making us better off. If you are a supporter of local schools, the largest funding cut in the nation is not working out so well for your school. If you are unemployed, this governor’s jobs policies are not working for you. If you are employed at a minimum wage, this governor seeks no wage adjustment for you. If you are a woman who wants to make her own healthcare decisions, this governor does not support you. If you are one of those 70,000 who lost their Badgercare health coverage, this governor turned away $1 million per day in federal funds that would have helped you. If you are a public employee who lost on average $5,000 in take-home pay, this governor has little concern for your well being. If you believe that all Wisconsin’s waters belong to the citizens of this state, this governor sides with corporate entities, not you. If you believe that voting should be an easy and accessible right of all Wisconsinites, this governor seeks to restrict voting. If you believe in equality in both marriage and equal pay for women this governor doesn’t share your view. If you believe that increasing Wisconsin’s long-term debt to historic levels is not wise government, this governor is definitely not working for you or Wisconsin. $900,000 dollars can buy a lot of advertising, but it cannot buy the truth!

OBITUARIES

Gerald W. Gillaspie August 29, 1926 – June 21, 2014 Gerald Whiteman Gillaspie found release from the shackles of his failing earthly body on June 21 — a body fully spent in service to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Gerald was born August 29, 1926, in Worcester, N.Y. to William and Ruth (Whiteman) Gillaspie as the younger of their two sons. He grew up in Oneonta, N.Y. An inquisitive lad, he was intrigued by small engines, cars and new-fangled gadgets. As a boy, he fueled these interests with a full-time job at a local filling station in the summer earning the royal sum of 10 cents an hour. During WWII, Gerald served in the U.S. Navy as a Pharmacist Mate second class. He so wanted to see active duty but was laid up by an ankle injury the day before he was to ship out. After the war, he enrolled at Providence Bible College where he met Ruth Barbara Hoyt. On August 20, 1949, they married in Plainville, Conn. Gerald wanted to help people in need and saw the role of funeral director as a key opportunity to do just that. Early in their marriage, Gerald graduated from the Cincinnati College of Embalming. However, as a young man he had committed his life to serve and follow God wherever He would choose to lead him and Gerald soon felt God’s call to further his education in the areas of Bible and theology. Graduating from Southeastern Bible College, Birmingham, Ala., and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, then in Chicago, he followed the moving of God’s Spirit into full-time ministry. Ordained by the Evangelical Free Church of America, Gerald pastored churches in New Haven and West Haven, Conn., Williams Bay, Waukegan, Ill. and St. Petersburg, Fla. Then for 17 years, he and Barbara traveled around the world together, serving as a pastor to missionaries before retiring from full time ministry in 1991. In the years that followed, they continued to serve God by encourag-

ing retired missionaries here in the US. His passion for knowing God and sharing Him with others never waned, so by the time Gerald left this earth, he had accumulated four earned degrees, one honorary degree, had authored two books, as well as an unpublished manuscript for a third – all focused on deepening his love for, and understanding of, the God who had given him life and had guided him through it. Gerald spent his last years at Golden Years Retirement Village in Walworth, and eventually Rolling Hills Place and Manor, Zion, Ill., surrounded by his family. Gerald was preceded into the presence of His Savior by his older brother, Leon, on Jan. 16, 2013. His legacy lives on in the lives of his wife Ruth “Barbara,” his four children, Donald, Ruth, Douglas and David, his 11 grandchildren, and his seven great grandchildren. Gerald is remembered with respect and admiration as a pastor, parent and friend, who lived a life of integrity, passionately following his God and lovingly encouraging others to do so. He will be missed on many levels by the wide spectrum of people whose lives he touched. Visitation will be at the Toynton Funeral Home, Walworth, from 6 to 8 p.m., July 1. Celebration of Life service will be held at Calvary Community Church, Williams Bay, July 2 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to Immanuel Church, 2300 Dillys Road, Gurnee, Ill. or Calvary Community Church, Williams Bay.

COMMUNITY & COMMENTARY

Change through cooperation is best If an organizational expert was given a free hand to devise a plan to deliver critical services to state residents, it is unlikely that our current system of local government would be proposed. Our current system has evolved over nearly 200 years, and though each unit of government and elected office probably made sense at the time it was created, the myriad of town, municipal and school governments that exist today could, undoubtedly, be streamlined. While a better mousetrap could be invented today, changing the basic structure is easier said than done. At the state level, politicians have sparred for years as to whether certain offices, such as the secretary of state or state treasurer, should even exist. At the end of each legislative session, however, the status quo is almost always preserved. Even when an office is gutted of nearly all of its functions, as is the case with the state secretary of state, the elected office still remains. Because of its age, county government can be even more unwieldy than most other forms of local government. Some county offices can trace their origins back to the shires of medieval England. While attempts have been made, over the years, to impose some sort of central control over the organization, nearly all of the elected offices that were ever created still exist today. Eleven county board supervisors hold the purse strings, while eleven independently elected officers and numerous appointed officials deliver programs. Like the bumblebee that, according to engineers, shouldn’t be able to fly, serious hurdles have been built into the system of county government. Autonomy provides the various players with the opportunity to blame others for poor results. Unfortunately, this is precisely what is happening in many counties across the country. The only chance the system has to succeed is through cooperation. When officials are able to keep their egos in check and respect the roles of other offices, an efficiency that was never designed into the system can nevertheless occur. Walworth County is fortunate to be served by the kind of elected officials that I just described, leaders whose primary motivation is to serve the public. It is probably because of this high level of cooperation that I never saw the need for a criminal justice coordinating committee. A criminal justice coordinating committee (CJCC) brings key players in the criminal justice system to the table to develop programs that will utilize tax dollars in the most efficient way, while protecting public safety. Given the goodwill that already existed among criminal justice stakeholders, including our judges, sheriff and clerk of courts, district attorney and county board, I questioned the point of adding another meeting to our calendar.

A second concern of mine pertained to the autonomy of each member. A CJCC cannot order the county board to appropriate money or a circuit court judge to issue a particular sentence; a committee that had only persuasive authority over the actions of its members seemed like a questionable expenditure of time. I never got in the way of its formation, but I was hardly a cheerleader for the effort when, in 2004, county board supervisor Joyce Ketchpaw had the vision to establish a CJCC in Walworth County and championed its creation. In my defense, I was not alone in my skepticism. The early meetings of our fledgling CJCC seemed to bear out my concerns. The participants were too polite to skip the meetings, but there seemed to be little to show for all of the time that was being spent. Tenacity usually pays off, and in this case, those early meetings actually sowed the seeds for later success. Today, our county’s CJCC meetings not only draw a sizable crowd, but the committee has implemented a number of important initiatives. A similar court for drunk drivers, that attempts to break the cycle of addiction that leads to repeat violations, has been in effect now for several years. A treatment court to address drug abuse will be rolled out in the near future. Another interesting program for which Walworth County was recently awarded a state grant addresses early intervention. Rather than waiting until children get into serious trouble with the law, this most recent juvenile justice initiative will make social workers available in selected municipal courts. By determining why these juveniles run afoul of the law, it may be possible to prevent the behavior from escalating. The program has been working well in the East Troy municipal court according to the judge there, Michael Cotter. The state grant will allow the pilot program to be expanded to an additional municipal court. The success of the CJCC, in my opinion, can be attributed to the way in which the committee has improved communication. While leaders were always willing to cooperate, communication among so many stakeholders was difficult and, in many cases, not taking place. I am happy that I was wrong about the CJCC. Programs initiated by the committee are showing promising results. Breaking the cycle of criminal behavior holds the promise of improving public safety while saving millions in jail costs. Those leaders, who had the vision to create the CJCC and the tenacity to improve it, over the years, deserve our thanks. The opinions expressed in this column are those of the author and not necessarily those of the Walworth County Board of Supervisors.

Time Is Now/Social Security not enough When I offered to send volunteers to pack and move his items he was again close to tears. I gave him a hug and said, “Let’s give your lady friend a call and tell her she has a new roommate.” This brought a smile back to his face as he hugged me in return. After listening to their happy phone conversation I could see they shared a special friendship that had helped them both through good times and bad. It was a relief to know he would not be alone and had a trusted friend. After his move he would be able to afford his expenses going forward, even if he was not able to return to his handy man job. I could see this was a goal for him that had helped with his determined recovery and something he really enjoyed. Thanks to your help this elderly gentleman was able to live independently, without the constant financial stress that was impeding his health. He and his friend continue to happily share a rental. They have both been able to now afford healthier food and share a car, allowing the gentleman to sell his car and use the money to pay off his medical bills and save a little bit for emergencies.

Quinn/LG high school memories Mr. Jonas was a very tough teacher. In order to pass the gym class, we had to be able to do 15 “chin-ups,” which I was barely able to do, and climb up a rope to the top of the gym, which I did not learn to do until the final examination. As a member of the LGHS football team, I was the thirdstring quarterback on the “B” squad (Junior Varsity) in 1956, but I did manage to throw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Bobby DeGraff in a game against Wilmot. Coach Morris cut me from the basketball team because I had forgotten to wear an athletic supporter at its first practice. I was the starting first baseman on the “B” squad baseball team. During a practice, I was leading off second base when the pitcher, Mike Hackett, whirled and threw to the shortstop, Richie Kahn, trying to pick me off base. The throw was high. Richie had to jump up for it. Just as my hand touched the bag, Richie’s cleats ripped a gash in my left hand. I was taken to Dr. Charles Brady’s office, where he sewed up my hand with 39 stitches. I still have an “L”-shaped scar on the back of my left hand. My sophomore year, 19571958, was infinitely better. I was the only sophomore in the all-seniors world history course taught by Clyde Boutelle. My biology class was well taught by Duane Morris. I loved dissecting a frog. My geometry class was taught by Mrs. “Ma” Helding, who lived in Rochester. Mrs. Held-

ing required students to do an enormous amount of “extra credit” work, which I never did and was graded accordingly. My Speech class was taught by Robert Wiese, who had been in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific during World War II. I thoroughly enjoyed his class. My classes in “Junior Business” and World Geography were taught by Roger McCaffrey. Gym class was again taught by Walter Jonas. But it was on the gridiron in my sophomore year is where I excelled. Doug Gerber was the new football coach. Beginning with the first game, I was the starting middle linebacker on the Varsity and was made the defensive captain. I had a great season until the penultimate game against Elkhorn when I was kneed in the back on a kickoff, got a contused kidney and was taken to Lakeland Hospital where I was hospitalized for a week. Because of my contused kidney, Coach Morris refused to let me play on the basketball team. I was again the starting first baseman on the “B” squad baseball team. During the years 19561958, classes were held in both the “new” high school and the “old” high school, which were connected by a long hallway. The most notable feature of the “new” high school was its auditorium and gym. The auditorium, with its balcony, faced north toward the gym, where gym classes were

held, basketball games were played, and assemblies, the annual Christmas program, concert band performances, plays and lectures were held. It was a unique, useful arrangement. Memories come flooding back, far too many to recount here. A few will suffice. The school’s secretary was Evelyn Pahl. Mrs. Ruth Gerber had a great deal of trouble controlling a rambunctious group of male students in her study hall on the second floor of the old school. The musicals “South Pacific” and “Oklahoma” were directed by Robert Wiese. Dick Burnett scored 42 points in a basketball game, establishing a school record. I recall staring out the window at Madison Street in Mrs. Kline’s typing class, wishing that the bell would ring, releasing the students for lunch. I saw Carole Parsons receiving her high school diploma in an iron lung (she had polio). The final two years, 19561958, of Lake Geneva High School could not foretell the sterility of the next two years to come in the brand new Badger High School being built at the southern outskirts of the city. Quinn has just published a book of poetry called “Midwinter Muse” and other poems. It can be purchased at Global Exchange (Broad and Geneva Streets) and at the Breadloaf Bookstore in the former Baptist Church.

This is the framework of what we understand to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;correctâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;appropriate.â&#x20AC;? It is our internalized social and cultural GPS mechanism. And there is compelling reason to think it needs to be both reexamined and made over. The proposal is this: From want to need. From price to cost. From chasing supply to curbing demand. And, above all, from profligacy to parsimony. From want to need. There was a lady pushing her grocery cart ahead of me in the parking lot at Aldis. It was none of my business, except she and I were apparently only a car or two apart, so I noticed more that I otherwise would have. She had been in front of me in the check-out line and that is why we now shared the same time and place. There were three children. One at each side clung to their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jacket and pant leg. The other was held in the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arms, while her free hand guided the perilously heaped grocery cart towards its destination. I do not think the cart could have held even so much more as a package of Jello. I pulled up short at the rear of my vehicle and raised the hatch to empty my own goods into the back of my Ford Escort. As I looked up, the lady I was walking behind reached her own conveyance. I was taken aback. Towering before her was the largest Humvee I had ever seen. I remembered that she had used food stamps to pay her grocery bill and from what I knew about vehicles, I was pretty sure hers was on â&#x20AC;&#x153;loanâ&#x20AC;? from the bank. She had a family, and it is clear that a subcompact would not have worked out very well for the size of her family, but, whether or not she and her husband wanted a megalith like the Humvee, it became very clear to any observer that it was most assuredly not what they needed.

COMMUNITY & COMMENTARY MANHATTAN MEATBALLS

Recipes for appetizers come in handy for special events, family cookouts and casual entertaining of several kinds. Many can be made a day or two ahead of serving, making them convenient whether being served at home or going to a shared meal event. Hot varieties can help stave off hunger while more substantial food is being prepared. Manhattan Meatballs can be prepared, browned and baked in their sauce on the day they are to be served, or the meatballs can be prepared, browned and frozen in a single layer. Transfer to tightly sealed containers and return to freezer. When serving day has arrived, thaw the meatballs, prepare the sauce and proceed as the recipe directs. Cream cheese, butter, finely chopped radishes and chopped green onion are combined with seasonings to become Radish Spread. Refrigerate it a few hours or a day ahead of serving for the best flavor and serve it after it has warmed up 30 minutes or so. It goes well on rye bread or crackers, or stuff it into some celery stalks. Black-Eyed Pea Caviar benefits with several hours of storage before serving. Canned black-eyed peas and hominy are drained and combined with remaining ingredients. Picante sauce is a main ingredient and can be as hot or mild as the cook chooses. Braunsweiger is combined with chili sauce, horseradish and green onion to form the ball, then covered with a layer of cream cheese combined with mayonnaise. Serve it with a variety of crackers or pita chips.

1 pound ground beef 1 pound ground veal 2 cups soft bread crumbs 2 eggs 1/2 cup finely chopped onion 2 tablespoons chopped parsley 2 teaspoons salt 2 tablespoons butter 1 10-ounce jar apricot preserves 1/2 cup barbecue sauce Combine meats, crumbs, eggs, onion, parsley and salt. Using 1 tablespoon of mixture, form meat balls. Allow to stand at room temperature 30minutes before browning in butter. Place in two-quart casserole. Combine preserves and sauce; pour over meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes about six dozen. Serve hot from chafing dish or slow cooker.

1 15-ounce can black-eyed peas 1 15-ounce can white hominy 2 medium tomatoes 4 green onions 1 large clove garlic 1 pepper, any color 1/4 cup chopped cilantro 2 tablespoons parsley 1 cup picante sauce, mild, medium or hot Drain peas and hominy and combine in mixing bowl. Slice tomato, remove seeds and chop into small pieces. Using just the white and green tender bases of the green onion, slice into small thin slivers. Crush garlic clove. Dice pepper. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl. Mix well, chill several hours. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers or raw vegetables. Makes at least eight servings.
