Lodi Pride campaign to launch in August District and chamber join forces for promotion By Lauren Anderson Reporter

You can expect to see Lodi storefronts lined with a new type of banner. In partnership with the Lodi and Lake Wisconsin Chueck Pursell Chamber of District Commerce, the administrator school district plans to launch a new Lodi Pride campaign this August. In an effort to promote com-

Lodi electors approved up to $500,000 for the town hall project but officials said the bids skyrocketed because the construction industry is booming now because of the late spring and prevailing wages, set by the state, were more than anticipated.

miunity pride , the school district will create a line of “Lodi Pride” banners that local businesses and organizations can put on display. “What we’re trying to do is pull the community together,” District Administrator Chuck Pursell said. “It’s not just the school district, it’s the business, churches, and organizations. All of those things make the community what it is. It’s all about being proud of being from Lodi.” The concept grew out of observing how residents are proud to wear T-shirts in support of Lodi sports, Pursell said. This campaign will shift the focus to the broader community. Pursell said the school dis-

trict heard about the idea from the Hayward School District, which launched a similar campaign last school year. The district created a line of customizable banWhat’s Next? ners Local businesses will be in asked to display Lodi supPride banners as part of port the promotion. of the district’s mascot, the Hurricanes. For example, a financial advisor made a banner that reads “Invest Like a ‘Cane,” a candy shop made a “Make Fudge Like a ‘Cane” banner and the dentist office made a “Brush, Floss, and Smile Like a ‘Cane” banner. As for Lodi, Pursell said the

banners might use a different school slogan every year or businesses may create their own message. “What is Lodi pride? It’s what you want Lodi pride to be,” Pursell said. Before banners are sold to businesses, Pursell plans to have a prototype on display at the district office. After that, Lodi Pride representatives will begin asking businesses to participate. Pursell said the district isn’t hoping to make money off of the campaign, but simply break even with production costs. Once launched, Pursell said the campaign could expand to include bumper stickers, Tshirts and other memorabilia.

Lodi School District is saying goodbye to a dozen teachers and staff this summer. A total of 12 employees have resigned from the school district, with half in curricular positions and the other half in co-curricular positions. District Administrator Chuck Pursell said the number of curricular resignations is slightly higher than in previous years. The resignations will affect two of the district’s well-known projects. Luke Kloberdanz, who has taught in the district for 13 years and cofounded the Ouisconsing School of Collaboration (OSC) in 2011, has resigned to spend more time with his newborn baby. He will continue to support the charter school by serving on its board, Pursell said. Janel Anderson will also be leaving after 13 years at Lodi High School. In addition to teaching social studies, Anderson founded the district’s International Education Week. “Janel Anderson was an important component of our international program and will be missed in that regard as well as her teaching,” Pursell said. Pursell said other staff will now fill in Anderson’s role to ensure the school’s Thailand and Germany exchange program continues. While both Anderson and Kloberdanz’s positions have been filled, two curricular positions in the district haven’t been filled. Among co-curricular positions, this year saw three resignations in girls’ basketball. The girls’ varsity, JV and assistant basketball coaches have resigned. All three positions have been posted, but none have been filled yet, Pursell said.

Fort Hood Sexual offender moving shooting suspect to Dekorra Law enforcement alerts community By Rachelle Blair Reporter

The Columbia County Sheriff's Department is alerting town of Dekorra Chris Poad residents to a man on the Wisconsin Sex Offender Registration Program. Chris Poad was convicted in 1981 of seconddegree sexual assault. In 1998 he was convicted of second-degree sexual

assault and fourth-degree sexual assault. In 2012 Poad was granted a conditional, supervised release to reside in the On the Web city of Sexual Offender PortRegistry age. www.widocoffendPoad, call the is Columbia County now Sheriff movDepartment at ing (608) 742-4166. to his residence at W8204 Cty.

Now that Dane has a farmers' market its possible to get farm fresh produce almost every day of the week. Modeling off established, successful markets in Waunakee and Lodi, local restaurant/bar owner Mark Hanson recently started Hanson's Farmers' Market every Tuesday from 3-6 p.m. "I like fresh food so I like to see the farmers here," Hanson said. "People have also been really excited about the market. Now they don't have to drive to get fresh produce." The village has a population of about 1,015 with no local grocery store. Since its June debut, the market has expanded the number of vendors who sell vegetables, plants, flowers, art and crafts, all the things that other markets have. But it also has something that most other markets can't boast about – beer. Taking advantage of its spot on the Hanson's bar/restaurant lot, there's a new beer garden If You Go... to help entice market goers.

Hanson picked Tuesday so it wouldn't compete with Waunakee's Wednesday market, Lodi's Friday market and Poynette's Saturday market. He also wants to attract vendors from those markets to come to his. "There is no fee the first year for vendors because we are trying to get this off the ground," he said. The plan is to run the market until late September/early November. Hanson's Farmers' Market is from 3-6 p.m. Tuesdays at 115 E. Main St. in Dane. For more information call Mark Hanson at (608) 849-1111.

GUEST COLUMN The importance of civics By Justice Ann Walsh and State Superintendent Tony Evers

On the “The Tonight Show,” television host Jay Leno frequently includes a segment called “Jaywalking,” where he walks the streets of Los Angeles with a microphone, accompanied by a cameraman. Leno asks random strangers potentially embarrassing questions, which often produces humorous answers. In one example, Leno asks a young person to name the three branches of government. After some hesitation, he answers “Upper, Middle, and Lower...?” Despite the fact we may find these segments humorous, these responses also make us cringe. After all, one of the primary reasons our public school system was formed was to ensure that students would learn about our government, culture and society. It is vital that our students understand our systems of government and economics. We also need them to comprehend topics including civil discourse and how individuals can access and influence the government at the local,

state, tribal and national level. Students need to learn how to meet and talk to people from different backgrounds, and understand that it is acceptable to disagree with diverse opinions in a respectful manner. The annual Gallup/Phi Delta Kappan Poll of the Public’s Attitudes toward the Public Schools has asked Americans the primary goal of schools. Overwhelmingly, people in the United States have said that educating young people for responsible citizenship should be the primary goal of our schools. However, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) test in Civics (2010) has shown a troubling trend. Student scores on this test have not significantly improved since 1998. Although 97 percent of students say they have studied civics or government in high school, the NAEP assessment results show that students are not retaining the information. We are in an era of new technologies, reforms and trends in education. They may seem overwhelming at first, but the tie to civics instruction and learning could be a central string tying them together. The progress toward “college and career ready” graduates across the country

More Americans can name a judge on “American Idol” than a judge on the Supreme Court. We must work together to change that.

could be appended to include “community readiness.” A student body The Challenge of Civics Education prepared for community readiness may help students become productive members of their communities, their state, nation, and potentially the world through civic preparation. The Campaign for the Civic Mission for Schools has outlined several practices for improved civic learning. These include direct classroom instruction, discussion of current events and controversial issues, and service- learning and community service. By incorporating these practices into the existing K-12 curriculum, districts can increase student opportunities in learning civic responsibility and community involvement. Justice O’Connor is doing her part by promoting — an engaging online educational gaming website that she founded to help reinvigorate civics education. As state superintendent of public instruction and the state co-chair of Justice O’Connor’s iCivics program, we believe that civics education is vitally important to the continuation of our country’s government and economic systems. Increasing attention to civics education in the schools will help ensure that students understand not only the meaning behind the recent Independence Day holiday, but how to become college, career, and community ready upon graduation.

During the summer library program it often seems like the Lodi Public Library is laser-focused on our community’s schoolage children. Yet truly, year-round, our library staff is on the look-out for innovative ways to get kids of all ages interested in books – even the ones who can’t read yet themselves. Every day I see kids in the library who will someday be strong readers because their caregivers encourage literacy on a continual basis: these are families who read road signs as they drive, and talk about the recipes used to make that favorite birthday cake. I also know that reading every day can seem daunting. Simply talking and reading your way through the day is a great way to give kids a vocabulary boost. It only takes a bit of practice to recognize how printrich our lives are (even in this digital age). Work to make it a habit and in the future your children will remember the warm, fuzzy feeling of those shared moments without even realizing you were developing the building blocks that made their brains strong.

Paul F. Fisk (left) is seen in 1967 as he listened to Midshipman William Bramley, III, of Pittsford, New York, as he explained the manual of the U.S. Naval Academy Regulations. Fisk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Fisk, Lodi, was one of 1,385 plebes (freshmen) admitted to the Academy at Annapolis, Maryland for the Class of 1971. The class was the largest in the history of the Naval Academy at the time.

Death at the Fair The World’s Fair, Chicago, Ill. has been the scene of a horrible accident as a result of which at least twenty men are dead and twice as many more fearfully injured. The immense cold storage building near the administration building caught fire and proved a veritable death trap. On a funeral pyre nearly nearly 200 feet above the earth a score of men had climbed up to a railed ledge and were getting ready to throw water on the fire which danced about the cap of the dome over their heads. The tower to which they clung was a flimsy uplift of wood built around a smokestack and covered with a deceptive shell of staff. As they watched the smudge of blaze over their heads the treacherous fire crept underneath them. Then 50,000 people, watching saw leaping arms of flame beneath the shelf on which the firemen stood. The hungry fire caught the frame work of kindling. They were cut off. The unfortunate crowd watched their demise.

Board approves $5.3 million budget

Action galore is in store at the fair grounds this weekend when Lodi plays host to the National Championship Rodeo. More than 100 cowboys and cowgirls will be on hand to compete for valuable points that count toward national rodeo championship honors, plus more than $3,000 in prize money. The stakes are high, so the action will be of top-notch caliber. To seat the large crowd expected to view American’s most rugged sport, the Fair Association has purchased and erected additional bleachers that will seat approximately 1500 more people, bringing the total that can be seated on the grounds to nearly 3,000. Some of the events scheduled are: bareback bronc riding, trick and fancy roping by Jackie Rhinehart, saddle broc riding, trick and fancy horse catches by Jackie Rhinehart, steer wrestling contest, ranch girls barrel race, bull whip demonstration, bull riding and Roman riding. The show is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat for a good two hours.

Lodi’s school board adopted a $5.3 million 1988-89 budget requiring a 3.7% local levy hike Monday night in a lengthy and often contentious session that focused more on the legitimate role newly formed adversary groups will have in district matters. Overall budget expenditures for 1988-89 are actually 8.7% greater than in 1987-88. This would have necessitated a levy increase of more than 10%. However, 1987-88 spending was $110,000 less than expected and revenues for the same period were about $90,000 greater than expected. Superintendent John Sauerberg recommended applying surplus revenues to the 1988-89 budget to reduce the levy.

In May, 15 German students along with two teachers from Schwalmgymnasium in Treysa, Hesse, Germany came to spend three weeks in Lodi and attend Lodi High School (LHS). They heard presentations about woodland mound builders of central Illinois, the Native Americans of the West around the Grand Canyon, the Alaskan Native Americans; learned about Native American mythology and created a dream catchers in art class. They also visited the state Capitol and the Wisconsin State Historical Museum, explored State Street, participated in exhibits at the Milwaukee Public Museum, learned about the Native Americans of the Devil’s Lake area. The students learned that Babcock ice cream, Culver’s custard, and cheese curds are staples of the Wisconsin diet. They made new lifetime friends, learned about the similarities and differences in our cultures, and grew more confident with their English skills. In September LHS will send 15 students and three teachers to Treysa to spend three weeks in the surrounding villages of Schwalmstadt. Lodi students will learn about schnitzel, apple kuchen and other German culinary delights along with the experience of a different type of school, visit historical landmarks and learn more about German culture.

A Green Lake area high school youth group visited Lodi to help with Lake Wisconsin Evangelical Free Church’s Vacation Bible School and volunteer at local non-profit organizations during a week-long service trip. As a volunteer project, they offered a helping hand at Prairie Valley Resale Store on June 24, spending the day sorting and moving piles of donated items. They came at just the right time, store manager Jennie Larsen said. Larsen said this is the busiest time of year for a resale shop because of rummage sales and house cleaning. Recently, the shop has been overwhelmed by an influx of donations. Moving and sorting all of the donations would have taken Larsen and another volunteer hours. But with the help of the youth group, it only took 20 minutes. “We had a lobby full of donations and had to lock it up for the weekend, so imagine my surprise when 20 teenagers showed up Monday morning to help,” Larsen said. “It is just overwhelming to have so many energetic, enthusiastic teenagers be so wiling to help.” “We’re just looking for opportunities to serve the community,” he said. “There’s this perception that teenagers are always taking. So this is a good opportunity for them to give back.



That was the goal of the project, youth group pastor Ryan Jingst said.

About a dozen Dane residents and business owners were evacuated the morning of July 10 after gas leak at a home on 108 Dane St.

Celebrating independence By Jean Clausen Lodi Enterprise correspondent

Summertime is when we celebrate our country. We begin at the end of May by honoring those who have served in the military. On July Fourth we honor the founding fathers, who really put together a pretty good set of rules to govern us by if we could only agree now on how they should be interpreted. We close the season by honoring the men and women who labor, doing difficult or boring jobs that make wheels run to keep us housed, fed, and clothed. Early settlers in the Lower Wisconsin River valley were more serious about celebrating July Fourth than most of us today. In 1850 the families living in Cassel Prairie (on the right bank of the river several miles below Sauk Prairie) gathered on top of Leykauf’s Bluff for their first Forth of July celebration. It was treeless at that time, and they erected a tamarack pole for a flag staff, read the Declaration of Independence, heard several speeches, sang songs, and two of the settlers fired a salute with their shotguns. This was followed by a picnic dinner. Many small towns are still celebrating the Fourth of July in more traditional ways than cities. Witwen (seven miles west of Sauk Prairie) is too small to have its own post office but the county road that runs through it is lined with cars for a mile or more on both sides parked for the July Fourth parade and chicken barbecue. This parade has even had national TV coverage. Several years ago we took a cousin from

Denmark, Jette, to that celebration. We found a good place for our folding chairs, and my daughter Karen took the car to the first parking space she could find. A possibility of showers was forecast, and we were prepared for that, but just as the parade ended rain came down in torrents. Jette had had knee surgery in January, and would be having the other one done soon, but she was game; there was nothing to do but follow the crowd to the “tabernacle� where the food would be served. So Karen and I each took an arm and we proceeded slowly. Inside there were no tables, just benches. We found a place to sit and pile our dripping raincoats, and Karen went to fetch the food. The community band was playing the “Stars and Stripes Forever�, and that made all the difference. We were warm, we were relatively dry, and soon we were somehow balancing on our laps plates full of barbecued chicken with all the home-cooked fixings. The park at Witwen is along the banks of little Honey Creek, which eventually finds its way to the Wisconsin River. It was

used as a winter camp by Native Americans, and beginning in the late 19th century became the site for Evangelical Church camp meetings. Families would take two-week vacations camping in tents for sociability and listening daily to inspirational speeches. About that time, in what is now Tower Hill State Park, Unitarians had similar gatherings with speakers and entertainment brought from Chicago by Jenkin Lloyd Jones, grandfather of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since 2003, in addition to the Fourth of July celebration, Witwen has been the scene of outdoor music concerts in July and August. We are invited to “Come and bring your friends for a relaxing summer evening of music in a country setting where early settlers and Native Americans camped near the Honey Creek many years ago. The historic tabernacle is used in the event of rain.� Brats, burgers, and pies are from local eateries, served by Boy Scouts, but the spirit of celebration and of camaraderie with friends and neighbors is the same as it was for all of our predecessors.

VOICE: Childrens’ reading skills

Continued from page 4

in theatrical events to present picture book-based plays during story time. This fun, often silly activity gets older and younger kids interacting together, with literacy and stories as common ground. And let’s not forget the actual reading of books. Books become a great equalizer: because each author has different vocabulary, kids hear new words with each new book. When speaking to children we often limit our vocabulary unconsciously. But by adding the voices of a choir of authors, children hear a range and variety of words and experiences. It’s also fun to read a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction. Some kids really prefer one or the other (as do many parents) and our library staff will help find a just-right book you’ll all enjoy. While your family searches for books, also take the time for free-play in our children’s room. Our back wall offers totes containing book-and-puppet pairings or developmentally appropriate toys. We’ve also added hands-on activi-


ty stations at the ends of our children’s room bookcases, and just outside that doorway our children’s computer stations feature learning-based games that build fine-motor skills too. Speaking of technology, don’t be afraid to include ebooks and digital learning as a part of your literacy children’s skills building. You can download children’s e-books from the library’s Overdrive website to share just as you would a print book. Additionally iTunes and Google Play offer some truly amazing apps for kids that sneak literacy skills into fun and games. Game stations and hand-held devices can be a fun, occasional, treat for kids while still carrying a hidden literacy reward. Lastly, I’d like to mention something new at the Lodi Public Library of which we’re very proud: our “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten� program. As part of the state’s new Growing Wisconsin Readers initiative, libraries are helping parents prepare children for learning at school and beyond. The Lodi Public Library

kicked off our 1,000 Books program in April, and todate about 40 youngsters are enrolled and counting every book read to them. Incentives and prizes make it fun for kids, and parents get the peace of mind knowing they’re making a discernible difference in their kids’ futures. Like the publishers and app writers mentioned above, we are constantly striving for new ways to engage your whole family in reading. There is a constant flow of new information, and variations on favorite stories. Since play is the root of learning, keep watching for even more exciting combinations of it and school readiness at the Lodi Public Library. Kristine Millard is the codirector of the Lodi Public Library and has a post-baccalaureate certificate in family literacy. The library’s jam-packed schedule of fun, learning-based activities for all ages can be found at

Nack, with most of the savings coming from material and labor. Unlike the pole-built construction of the past, Nack said structures are now better quality and more durable but admits minor design changes will be needed to allow for the new type of construction, if the board decides to go that route. In conjunction with the board's efforts, Nack has been discussing ways to reduce costs with the two lowest bidders, Advanced Building Corporation ($542,250) and Cardinal Construction Company ($547,155). He estimates costs could come down $60,000 with value engineering, but still wouldn't be within budget. Design service, consulting fees, well, plumbing and septic are expected to add $59,231 to the project. The kink in plans will mean the Oct. 1 constriction completion deadline won't be met and the town of Lodi will need to vacate its current space and move to 108 Lodi St. under a $1,200 month-tomonth lease agreement. "No matter what we do we can not meet the deadline to be moved out of the current office and into the new building by Oct. 1, " Nack said. Collins said he expects to keep the public involved if the board considers major design changes to the town hall and would like to hold a public meeting to detail the project sometime in

AN OUTDOORMAN’S JOURNAL Resident “Canada goose” update By Mark Walters Special to the Lodi Enterprise

Hello friends, I lucked out when I was visiting the State Game Farm at Poynette and my friend Sara Kehrli, who is the Columbia and Sauk County wildlife biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), invited me to go goose banding in Rock and Green Counties I had very little knowledge of how or exactly why this is done, and after doing field work and then interviewing Mike Foy, a WDNR wildlife biologist in Rock and Green Counties, and Kent Van Horn, a migratory bird ecologist for the WDNR, I consider myself an educated man on the subject.

Wayne Sadek REALTOR



Golf can be a very humbling game. I’ve experienced that feeling many times since I first picked up a club in the 1970s and had more of the same when I played The Oaks Golf Course. Long grass off most of the fairways and lush, thick rough next to all of them tormented me throughout my visit to The Oaks. A well-kept, very appealing course for being just 10 years old, The Oaks has fast, true greens and lots of trouble if you aren’t in the fairway off the tee. I’ve probably played The Oaks a dozen times in the 10 years it has been open, but after spending the day struggling to find the short grass, realized almost every round I played was in a scramble – meaning most of the approaches I had taken at The Oaks were from the fairway. That wasn’t the case when I reviewed the course as I actually birdied the first hole and was even on two of the six par 3s, but barely broke 100 (97) on the par-71 course. The day started innocently enough as I hit a nice drive on the first hole, a dogleg right that is only 311 yards from the white tees. You can cut the corner on this hole, but don’t bite off more than you can chew as the dogleg is likely more mild than you would imagine (probably about 150 degrees) and you’ll have to carry tall trees all the way. Despite hitting into a noticeable wind, I drove to about 30 yards and then drained a 20-foot putt for a birdie after a very average approach. This green tilts left to right, sometimes substantial depending on pin placement. Having played pretty good golf (for me) over the last month, I was very excited to play the next 17 holes. Then I hit my tee shot on No. 2 and slowly but surely began to unravel. A short par 3 surrounded by trees and a trap just right of the green, an accurate tee shot is important. If you do miss left, you have a bit of leeway as the hill left will drop the ball back toward the green. However, if you pull your tee shot as much as I did (into the tree/long grass) and have to drop on the hill, the chances of your short chip staying on the green aren’t very good as it slopes left to right. As with several greens on this course, No. 2 is uphill until about the halfway point before sloping downhill on the back side of the

green. Although it is the 15 handicap, par isn’t bad on this hole. You get a break on the next two holes, a pair of reachable par 5s with relatively open tee shots, but again there is trouble near the greens, which both have a fair amount of slant. The pin has been back every time I’ve played No. 3, which is safer to approach from the right of the green because of the small forest left. However, the green does slant right to left, giving you an awful chip if you do miss right on your approach. There is long grass on both sides of the uphill fairway on No. 4. You’ll have an uphill approach to the green, which slants left to right and starts uphill, but slides back downhill near the halfway point. There are traps on the left side of the manageable par 3 fifth and a hill that drops sharply off to the right. This is another tough green, which slopes right to left and back to front. “My advice would be to do whatever it takes to keep the golf ball in the fairway off the tee and be sure to put yourself on the low side of the hole with your approach or pitch shots,” said pro Jeremy Udovich. “Think lush rough that frames each of the fairways.” Goodness, I can’t stop thinking about that “lush” rough that had me muttering a few other four-letter words for much of the day. If you find the rough – or the long grass – off the tee, you will need strong wrists to make it through the day or the knowledge of how to hit shots in those situations. I can’t tell you how many times I chunked, grounded or skulled shots from the rough. The Koshkonong Creek runs about 80 yards in front of the sixth green, but shouldn’t come into play as it is 300+yards off the tee. Still, after a slight pull into the left rough off the tee, I found it on my approach. No. 7 is a picturesque par 3 in which you have to carry the creek, a marsh and a pond to the wide, but not terribly deep green. If you can avoid the long grass left or right, No. 8 is a reasonable hole though trouble surrounds the green. You close the front with a very cool par 5, which doglegs right and begs you to cut the corner. However, it is very tough to find the fairway with a driver as there is long grass to the right and the uphill drive drops dramatically to the left in the landing area and

will often roll through the fairway into trouble on the left on even straight tee shots. Aim right on your approach shot as the hill will continue to kick shots to the left all the way to the green, which slopes hard back to front and right to left. There are tough greens throughout the course. “We truly have world-class smooth and speedy putting green conditions day in and day out,” Udovich said. The greens were in great shape the day I played, but far too many players didn’t repair their marks on the green, which was frustrating to see. You’ll start the back with a downhill par 3 that is surrounded by trouble, but short enough to play safely. You’ll follow up with a couple of par 4s that have Hwy. 94 on the left and long grass right. Again, both are shorter par 4s, but if you don’t find the fairway, your chances for par aren’t too good. There is trouble left and long grass right of the par 3 13th, but room for error right. The green drifts right to left in front and left to right in back, so be sure to note pin placement. A very interesting hole, No. 14 is visually disturbing with long grass in front of the tee box and only lost balls as a result of tee shots that drift left. Your approach will have to carry the marsh – which has very little room in front of the green if the pin is left – and has trees from 140 yards in right. I love the look from the tee box on 15 as you will need to make a field goal between the tall trees on either side of the fairway not more than 60 yards from the box. A very reachable par 5, you’ll need to deal with three traps right and two left of the green. “Greg Martin signature deepfaced bunkers prevail on this course,” Udovich said. “They are beautiful in terms of how they frame each of the holes esthetically, but avoid being in them at all cost.” Luckily, I avoided traps for the most part – though spending most of my day in long grass and/or “lush” rough – was no picnic. A dogleg right, you can cut the corner on 16 and get close to the green with a long tee shot, however the fairway does narrow as you close in on the green. Shots right of the par 3 17th will likely find one of the three traps awaiting you, but shots left are not much better as the green

slopes left to right and back to front. A dogleg left par 5, longer hitters can cut the corner and hope to end up on the right side of the fairway – which is easier to come in from – on the fun closing hole. You’ll need to carry a marsh on your approach shot and watch for traps front right and back left of the green. If you hit a good tee shot, this is a green definitely worth going for in two, though trouble awaits a poor approach shot. A common theme to the courses I have visited this year has been soggy spots due to all the spring/summer rain. That wasn’t the case at The Oaks. “With a farm background and understanding how detrimental flooding can be to crops, John Blaska encouraged an abnormal amount of large drainage pipe be utilized during the construction of The Oaks and we drain incredibly well from heavy rain and even flooding conditions,” Udovich said. “Unlike many courses in the area, we will be open and have golf carts available despite virtually any amount of rain.” Even though I was miserable off the tee – and then continued that theme from the rough on following shots – The Oaks was a terrific course to play. It will penalize you for poor shots, but if you are straight off the tee you will be able to score. I also really enjoyed the GPSenabled carts which had ball and club-washers – even if it didn’t seem to help me hit straight. Another nice feature was five tee boxes, which ranged in total length from 5,071 to 6,763 yards.

Kayla Morley visits with a resident on the Lodi Good Samaritan Society patio. job done is to promote team work and spend time building trust with her staff before making changes, she says. Morley is also interested in getting out in the community and meeting people and sharing what Lodi Good Sam has to offer. She has plans to work on projects that will continue to encompass Lodi Good Sam residents with the rest of the community. A successful partnering with Lodi school kids will continue and she's looking at having a local Eagle Scout help with a gazebo renovation. She also has some other

fun tricks up her sleeve to liven up the facility, like bringing in a soft-serve ice cream machine to treat residents and guests, and entice more visitors. It's just one of the ways that nursing homes and longcare facilities are reinventing themselves to serve people better. "The face of nursing homes are really changing," she says. "We are promoting a community within itself. Until somebody walks in the door they may not have that experience."


A popular Okee restaurant has been denied a liquor license because of unpaid taxes. The Lodi Town Board said they would grant a liquor license to Anchors Away owner Tammy Miller if she paid $25,255 in personal property taxes, county real estate taxes, license fees and a vendor liquor bill. As of the Monday, July 15 deadline, Miller had not paid the amount and the town did not issue a liquor license. Town chairman Bob Collins said the board had already extended the deadline from Friday, July 12 to give Miller more time. "The board tried to work with her. We need business in the town,” Collins said during a July 15 phone interview. “She

said she would have the money but it's been six weeks of her saying that to us.” Anchors Away, W11579 Cty Road V, has been closed since June 30 when the Department of Revenue revoked its seller's permit. The restaurant was closed May 22 by the DOR and the Columbia County Sheriff's Department after it had been operating without a seller's permit for more than a month. A seller’s permit allow businesses to collect sales tax from customers and report it to the state. Miller reopened the restaurant in early June after her seller’s permit was reinstated. Collins said it was confirmed on Monday with the DOR that the seller's permit for Anchors Away was revoked. The town required Miller to have a seller's permit in order to issue a liquor license. The Okee supper club had employed 25 staff.

Soon-to-be-Famous Lodi Band After five decades, the Soon-to-be-Famous Lodi Band has become a local institution. “They’ve been about to be famous for a long time now,” Unke said. Audience members can expect to see some younger faces in the ensemble this year, since the band started offering scholarships and stipends for high school students who want to participate. “The young students add excitement and energy to the band,” she said. “I see it as the band making an investment in the future.” The band will perform at Lodi United Methodist Church on Aug. 11 at 7 p.m. All concerts are open to the public, with a free will offering to help compensate the musicians. The Lodi United Methodist Church is located at 130 Locust St.

Board votes down contribution increases Employees will see hike in health care costs By Jennifer Fetterly Managing Editor

Lodi school staff will see a big jump in their health care contributions next school year. School district officials said a 10.5 percent increase with Dean Health Plan will take effect this fall bringing the employee's annual portion for a family to $4,700 and $2,716 for an individual. Last school

year, costs were $2,822 for a family and $1,888 for an individual. About 150 staff members will be affected by the change. The school district will continue to make annual contributions of $15,000 for family and $6,000 for single. The Lodi School Board reviewed options to increase the district's contribution but it was voted down. Options included increases from $200-$500 but some school board members said with the budget deficit it wasn't

possible. "We could go with option four (an increase of $500) but we don't have the money to give them," said school board member Adam Steinberg. Increasing district contributions would have added $30,000-$75,000 to the 2013-14 budget. School labor groups chose Dean Health Plan, the current provider, two years ago after considering proposals from Unity and WEA. WEA Trust was the previous provider.

Attendees can also enjoy DJ entertainment from Bucky County 95.9 and bounce houses for the kiddies. Niebuhr says it’s a great opportunity to spend time with friends and neighbors before the fireworks display begins. Niebuhr says although it can be difficult work putting the annual event together it’s all worth it. “There is a lot of exuberance after, as much as you might not want to do it again, after the show is over you can’t wait until next year,” he said. Midsummer Nights in Dekorra Fireworks will begin at noon on Saturday, July 20 with a classic car and tractor show. Bring lawn chairs and blankets to the field at the corner of McMillan and Hall Road, near the Poynette-Dekorra recycling center. The fireworks display will begin at dusk. Rain date is Sunday, July 21. To enter the car show or for vendor booth information call Nola Branton at (608) 617-5513 or Mark Niebuhr at (608) 225-2592.
