Pulaski News

By Laura Dahms In the sixth grade, Joey Christensen transferred from John F. Kennedy Elementary School to Pulaski Community Middle School. This was a difficult transition because Christensen did not know anyone, and he felt especially uncomfortable because he had disabilities that prevented him from doing many things that the other sixth graders did. Christensen had dealt with difficult

situations before. When he was born, no one thought he would survive, let alone sit or walk on his own. Yet, he has survived and has learned to walk and sit on his own. Using the same determination, Christensen got through middle school and eventually made friends whom he could relate to and rely on. Of his friends, Christensen said, Once I met them, middle school got better. I met people who took me for me. With these friends, he advanced to Pulaski High School, where he further developed his strength of mind and body. During high school, he experienced many difficulties that few people can claim. He constantly battled within himself between his need to be independent and the fact that he also needs help sometimes.

Since 1991, N.E.W. Curative Rehabilitation, Inc., and the Center for Childhood Safety have teamed up to promote bicycle safety through our annual Winners Wear Helmets event. This years event celebrated our 20th Anniversary! More than 1,000 Head Start and third grade students from at risk schools participated in a bike rodeo and interactive educational demonstrations about traffic safety and brain injury prevention. All of the participants were also fitted with a new helmet, courtesy of area sponsors. We rely heavily on volunteers to assist with this huge event. This year, we were again privileged to have a group of middle school students volunteer for the two-day event. Not only did these students assist as needed throughout the day, but also they reinforced the importance of safety and wearing a helmet. Our staff members were very impressed by the quality of their work and the sincerity and maturity with which they performed their tasks. We look forward to their participation again next year. We would like to acknowledge this wonderful group of young people and the Pulaski Community Middle School teachers for their assistance in making

Wisconsin are in trouble

By Graham Severson Turtles are commonly-seen reptiles in Wisconsin, but in truth many turtle species are actually endangered or threatened. Wisconsin has about 12 species of turtles currently in the state, and many of those species are endangered, threatened, or species of concern. Many more turtle species are in danger around the world as well. The underlying cause of this is habitat loss. Much of the turtles wetland habitat has been lost and has been replaced by roads or buildings. Some other causes are common household pets, vehicles, and colonization around turtle territory. Even though the painted turtle numbers are relatively strong, other turtles such as the Ornate Box turtle, Blanding turtle, Wood turtle, and False Map turtle numbers are all inadequate. The Ornate Box turtle is especially in danger. Although turtles have a long life span, reproduction is rare and too far in between because of a slow maturing rate for turtles. When turtles do reproduce in the mating season of early summer, around a dozen eggs will be laid in a turtle-made hole in the ground. The temperature around the egg in the first trimester can determine the gender of that turtle. It is suggested that if a person finds turtle eggs, they should leave them
A turtle gets photogenic.

Dear Editor,

alone. If an egg makes it to hatching time, it will take several years for that new hatched turtle to fully mature. A turtles shell is made up of 60 bones connected together, covered in hard plates called scutes to protect the turtle. The shell has nerve endings so a turtle is able to feel with its shell. If one ever touches the shell of a turtle, he/she should wash his/her hands immediately afterwards because many turtle shells carry salmo-

nella. Turtles have inhabited Wisconsin before any humans and deserve their place in this state. They are never guilty of attacking a human by any other means but self defense and are regular victims of urbanization. Help is needed to protect the reptile from extreme endangerment by all people. The next time you see a turtle crossing the road, drive around it.

Armstrong The Very Hungry Caterpillar visits the library Creek celebrates

L.I.F.E. Youth Group attends Camp

By Timothy Frisch The youth group, L.I.F.E., attended their bible camp at Lake Helen Bible Camp in Wausaukee from June 20 to June 25. Lake Helen Bible Camp has been serving numerous groups like L.I.F.E. for years now. The camp includes a lake, swimming docks, a lodge, a cafeteria, numerous cabins, basketball and volleyball courts, and a chapel. The camp has a dear place in the lives it has helped change, including the members of L.I.F.E. youth group. My favorite part of L.I.F.E. Camp was the chapel services because it was just generally a great time, and everyone came together as a family, said Nikki Wied, a member of L.I.F.E. youth group. Chapel was held twice a day, a morning service after breakfast, and an afternoon service after dinner. These chapels offered attendees a chance to reflect on life. Sermons were given by various members of the L.I.F.E. youth group staff, including Dave and Jamie Jackson, Pastor Bob Wied, John Sharp, and others. Each of the sermons reflected around a central theme. The week ended with testimonials around a campfire, where each of the attendees had the opportunity to speak about what God has done for them. The theme of the week was a Mountaintop Experience. Each of the sermons mentioned earlier played off of a central passage

Brenna and Maya Newdiger stand by the very hungry caterpillar at the Pulaski Library.

By Tim Frisch Pulaski Library held the Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar event on June 17. There was an enormous turn out of young children. The primary goal of this event was to teach kids basic functions of everyday life and to count and rhyme. They started out the event by handing out fruit cards that related to the story, and when the instructor told the kids to hold up

the right fruit card, the caterpillar puppet would come over and gobble up their card. After all the cards were gobbled up, they all moved on to sing songs, such as If Youre Happy and You Know It. These songs were promptly followed by the arrival of a giant mascot of the hungry, hungry caterpillar, which kids were jubilant to greet and to take pictures with.

from the Bible. Each of these Bible passages contained something about a mountain, such as the transfiguration of Christ, and the mountaintop that was involved in that passage. The purpose of this theme was for many of the youth members to consider this camp a Mountaintop Experience. L.I.F.E. youth group has been attending Lake Helens camp over the past three years. Each year has had a unique theme and unique messages. The attendees have been left with numerous memories, including this years pudding race. My most memorable experience from this year was the pudding race, said Nikki Wied. It was messy and good fun. The pudding races objective was for two team members to dig out gummy worms out of chocolate pudding with their mouths and then to transfer them to a pan on another table. The team which completed this first was dubbed the winners. L.I.F.E. youth group has been operating over the past four years to reach the youth of Pulaski and the surrounding areas. They currently meet in the Teen Hope Center on 127 S. St. Augustine Street, Pulaski. They hold youth group from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday nights. For more information on the Teen Hope Center or L.I.F.E. youth group, call (920) 822-7117.

Pets have story time at library

By Taylor Maccoux As part of the summer program at the Pulaski library, children and families could bring in their pets for story day. A wide array of pets including gerbils, stuffed animals, a husky, a Chihuahua, and other dogs were brought to the library on June 30. My kids have been preparing for today by brushing the dog and have really been looking forward to it, said Brigid Molony. Librarian Anne Mead welcomed all of the events partici-

pants and read them stories about pets. The book Duck and Cover was widely received by all who listened. After story time, those who had brought their pets could introduce them to the whole audience, describing the animal and sharing an interesting aspect about it. Then, if the owners were comfortable, children could go around meeting and petting every animal. I thought today was fun to see different kinds of dogs, said Helen Treankler.

An audience member at the Pet Story Time event at the library pets the husky named Indy.

Little Suamico Fire honors dedication

By Laura Szela The Little Suamico Fire Department will be having a parade, open house, and dedication service on July 17. Starting in 1957, the Little Suamico Fire Department has been active for 53 years. Prior to this, Suamico had serviced the Township of Little Suamico with its fire department needs until 1957.

It will go through the village of Little Suamico and Sobieski, throughout populated areas in the township. The parade will be led by motorcycles driven by members of Fire and Iron, a motorcycle club for firemen. Following the motorcycles will be all of the fire trucks belonging to the Little Suamico Fire Department as well as other firefighters who choose to drive their vehicles in the parade. The parade is expected to take approximately an hour and 15 minutes. After the parade, there will

be a memorial dedication around noon, after which the Length of Service Awards will be presented to firefighters to honor their years of dedication. There will be an open house to show the public the new addition of the Little Suamico Fire Department added in 2008. Inside there will be equipment on display, hands-on fire extinguisher demonstrations, and free soda and ice cream. Also, a landing of the Eagle Three Rescue helicopter will be presented. The Oconto County canine unit will also be there later with demonstrations of how their dogs operate in the community. The Little Suamico Fire Department invites all to come and check out the department and facility on July 17 and enjoy the parade and other activities. The Little Suamico Fire Department would like to send special thanks to the following for their donations toward the memorial: JC Santy Construction LLC, Hugo Bramschrieber, Pomps Service Inc., Ben Bukowiec & Robinson Metal, and Steve Szymanski of Truss Systems. As an individual effort of funding for the memorial at the fire department, you may want to purchase a stone with your name on it!

One of the accomplishments that Christensen takes the most pride in is his ability to be so independent. Recently, he has acquired part-time jobs such as at Ashwaubenon Bowling Lanes, Western Lanes, and Verns Hardware. It is difficult but necessary for him to ask for help more often than others. His teachers and counselors at the high school helped him deal with this inner strife when they suggested that he advocate for himself. This idea helped Christensen immensely because advocating is not a sign of helplessness; it is simply a vocalization of his need of support from others. He wanted people to be aware that he is able to do almost anythingit just takes him more time than average. Christensen graduated from Pulaski High School in 2005. High school was great! Because of the acceptance from the people that helped or acknowledged me, it was a great four years! These people in school, staff and students, looked past my physical looks and took me for me. They knew I was handicapped, but they treated me as a normal person. They respected me, and they earned my respect, said Christensen. After graduating, an idea came to him, which grew into a huge dream over the course of several years. He wanted to give to Pulaski students what many of his teachers gave to himan environment where handicapped students are constantly challenged, respected, and safe. In order to do so, Christensen knew that he needed to not only motivate the disabled students, but also their peers, teachers, and parents. For now, Christensen is planning to speak at teacher inservices at many of the schools in the Pulaski Community School District. I want to get everyone in the same mindset and with the same goals. I want to put non-disabled people in disabled peoples shoes, said Christensen. Christensen does not want the subject of handicapped people to be quiet. He would like everyone from young to old to understand handicapped students points of view. Christensen said, My focus point is in the Pulaski District right now, but eventually Id like to visit other districts and make a difference there as well. My mission statement goes back to the saying that everyone knows: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Superintendant Dr. Mel Lightner and PACE Director Mark Heck show their support for Joey Christensens goals to give back to the community.

to the Pulaski community for their gracious support, said Royer. DQ gave out a free blizzard for each toy donated to the drive. It was a huge success, said store manager Karen Birr. We had a lot of toys brought in this year. I hope next year is even bigger.

into this event really paid off. Chris Jaworski, president of the Pulaski Area Historical Society and member of the Pulaski Tractor Cruisers (PTC), pulled hay wagons filled with community members. During the rides, Jaworski gave a brief history about the barns unique style and the land. The town bought the barn from a developer in 2007, and since then, the barn has become a staple and landmark to the Town of Chase. The barn will be a historical park used as a gathering place for events such as weddings, farm shows, auctions, workshops, and more. The stable area will be a rustic museum, showcasing the lifestyles of the early settlers from this area. The stone barn was built in 1903 and is on the State and National Register of Historic Places because it is one of the last surviving all-fieldstone barns in the country. Efforts began in 2009 to raise $430,000 for the restorations of the stone barn. If the town can raise $287,000 of this amount by June of 2012, then they will receive a Challenge Grant from the Jeffris Family Foundation for $143,000. To date, the town has raised around $100,000 in pledges and donations. For more information about the Stone Barn and how you can make a tax-deductible donation, please visit www.townofchase. org, or call Kris at (920) 8225447.

DNR gives boating safety reminder

By Tim Frisch and Andy Lundin, Conservation Warden Even though the boating season has already begun, one must keep in mind that there are numerous laws and safety recommendations that go along with boating and that the boater shares the waters with over 635,000 other registered boaters in the state of Wisconsin. First of all, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has provided statistics of 2009 and 2010s injuries, fatalities, and other boat-related accidents to date. There have been at least seven fatal boating accidents this year alone. In 2009, there were a total of 16 fatal boating accidents. Of those fatalities, 88 percent were drownings, and none of those 88 percent wear wearing a PFD (Personal Floatation Device). Also, 38 percent of fatalities were OWIs (Operating While Intoxicated) with an average blood alcohol content level of 0.227, over three times the legal limit for Wisconsin. Finally, of the fatalities of 2009, 79 percent of them had not taken any form of boating safety instruction courses. Furthermore, the WDNR requires that certain equipment be on board and stowed appropriately on the vessel. First and foremost, every person must have a readily accessible PFD on board; this PFD must be wearable. Also, this PFD must be in a good and serviceable condition, and it must be of the proper size intended for the boater. Additionally, if a boat is 16 feet or longer, there must be a Type IV also on board, which is considered to be a throwable device. This throwable device must be available immediately to the boaters present. Secondly, if the boat has any enclosed compartments, regardless of the vessels size, you must have a fire extinguisher on board the boat, and it must be mounted where it is easily and readily able to be retrieved. If your boat is smaller than 26 feet, then it is required that you carry a Type B-1 fire extinguisher. If your boat is larger than 26 feet, you may be required to carry more extinguishers; check the boating regulation PDF link at the bottom of this article. Thirdly, the WDNR also requires that you have fully-functional navigational lights. Lights are required by law to be on from sunset to sunrise, and during periods of restricted visibility. If youre going boating during the daytime and plan to stay out long enough so that it will become dusk, check your boat lights prior to departing. The federal government requires that every boater on federal water ways, such as Lake Michigan, the Bay of Green Bay, the Fox River, or Lake Winnebago, carry at least three flares that arent past their expiration dates, and some sort of noise making device. Also, federal law requires that children under the age of 13 must wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejacket while underway in an open vessel on federallycontrolled waters. Next, the WDNR has a series of safety precautions that are recommended for boaters. Check your local weather prior to departing; this is especially vital if you are embarking on a larger body of water. Also, if you have a marine band radio, you can receive constant weather updates with that device while you are out boating.

By Kevin Ripley While many people believe that there isnt anything better than a hot farm-style breakfast, the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board came up with something better: breakfast on the farm for everyone. Every June throughout the state, farmers serve homecooked breakfasts to celebrate June Dairy Month. For Pulaski, the closest breakfast was held June 27 by Green Valley Dairy of Krakow, selected by the Shawano County Farm Bureau. Nearly 7,000 people showed up to the event, lining the streets to purchase their food or just walking in for the tour. An inch of rain the day before almost hindered the parking space, but it worked out, and people were even

bused in. We were delighted with the turnout, said Green Valley Dairy owner John Jacobs. However, food wasnt the only reason people showed up; Green Valley Dairy is an ecologicallyfriendly farm with plenty of technological advances to impress visitors. It is one of the largest operations in the area and also one of the newest, having begun in 2000. Guided tours were conducted throughout the event, taking wagons of visitors through the cow and nursery barns, past methane digesters, nutrient storage ponds, and feed storage mounds. We tried to make it a fun, educational event, said Jacobs.

Children and adults alike could attest to that as they enjoyed miniature horse and cart rides, a petting zoo, a pedal tractor pull, and fire truck and emergency vehicle demonstrations. Also, the KNX Party Band entertained the crowd with live music in one of the seven tents. A speaker tent featured guests who educated listeners about agriculture issues such as sustainability, methane, cow care, and the environment. The actual breakfast included diced ham in scrambled eggs, pork sausage, hash browns, cheese, cinnamon bread, milk, juice, and ice cream sundaes. Overall, 4,700 breakfasts were purchased, and children ate free.

If youre going to an unfamiliar boating location, it is recommended that you let someone you trust know where you are headed and for how long you plan to be boating there. Furthermore, in case of a passenger falling overboard, it isnt a bad idea to carry a wool blanket to quickly re-heat the victim. Lastly, the WDNR states that anyone born after January 1 of 1989 is required by law to complete a state-approved boater safety course in order to operate a motor boat or personal watercraft. This course is available either online or by attending a classroom version. The online version can be found at www. boatexam.com or www.boat-ed. com. You can also consult the WDNR website boating safety page at http://dnr.wi.gov/org/es/ enforcement/safety/boatsaf.htm., for classroom locations or links to the safety course websites. If you or a friend know of any illegal boating activity or sight such an event, the WDNR can be contacted at 1-800-TIPWDNR (847-9367), or text us a tip beginning with TIPWDNR followed by a space to TIP411 (847411). For further information or questions contact the Brown County Conservation Warden, Andy Lundin, at (920) 662-5434 or e-mail him at Andrew.lundin@ wi.gov. Be safe, and enjoy the rest of the 2010 boating season.

School Updates
Students get creative

Educations purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one. ~ Malcolm S. Forbes

Thursday, July 15, 2010

By Candice Matuszak In the Building with Tools class at PCMS, teacher Lynn Kabat helps summer school students construct bean bag toss boards using tools. The class gives children the opportunity to construct with their own hands. Kabat has been teaching summer school for two years, and this year she has two classes with 24 students in each class. The students in this class put together boards, measure, saw,

Page 12

Students build with tools

sand, paint, design patterns, and sew bean bags. The different things that the students are learning in the class are basic tool awareness, they learn how to make corrections, remove nails, make measurements, and learn safety rules. On the last day of class, the class is having a bean bag tournament with the bean bag toss game they made. We get to use spray paint. We get to make stuff with wood and tools. Its fun to use tools to build stuff, said Ethan King.

Isaac Haskelle, Megan Aumann, Janelle Berna, Chris Jones, Faith Hicks, Emmalyn Bestul, Emillee Hendricks, Marisa Paque, Mitchelle Girtz, teacher Amy Demo, Sylvia Ragland, Alexis Payette, Kayla Norton, Alyssa Wareham, Alexandra Carmichael, and Robyn Gehri show off their work in the Ceramics and Art Metals summer school class.

By Taylor Maccoux Teacher Amy Demo helps students get creative in handson activities in the Ceramics and Art Metals Courses at PHS summer school. The classes, one for ceramics and the other for art metals, have 15 to 17 students from grades seven to eleven. This is Demos first year teaching at Pulaski High School and in summer school. I think its been a great success to meet some students that do not get a chance to take extracurricular courses during the school year and also meet some of the middle school students,

said Demo. Hopefully, summer school provides a sample of some of the great high school art courses we have to offer that students may further explore during the school year. The students in the ceramics class practiced hand building with clay and created a variety of projects using slabs and coils. Furthermore, they worked on wheel throwing, which is a new technique for middle school art students. Finally, the students could glaze and paint their final ceramic pieces. I had a lot of fun, and I got to meet others students who were

younger and older. It was a great experience, said student Alyssa Wareham. Those in the art metals class worked on a soldering project where they used a variety of original-design images to make magnets, necklaces, or key chains. Then, the students sawed, filed, sanded, soldered, and polished their pieces. Getting first-hand experience, they learned about different tools and equipment and how to use them properly. Ethan King said, I liked the projects we got to make in metals because they were different.

Students from the Building with Tools class stand by the boards they made and painted for a bean bag toss game.

Throughout the years, it has been the tradition that the Red Raider Marching Band and the Pulaski Community Middle School band perform Concert on the Concourse in front of the Pulaski High School. On June 24, the tradition continued as the band marched onto the concourse to cadences played by percussion. The middle school band, under the direction of Tim Kozlovsky, performed first in the concert. Songs performed by the middle school band included Do You Love Me? Bang the Drum All memorated Pulaskis 100-year anniversary. Afterwards, the high school band and color guard, directed by drum majors Colin Duke and Tamara Deneys, played a wide variety of songs including On Wisconsin, Thats a Plenty, Mr. Roboto, and many others.

Lacera, a graduated percussion player. The band also played some Latin tunes in honor of Seymour High Schools band, which will be joining the band on its trip in July to Colorado. The audience also enjoyed pie and ice cream during the performance, which was a fundraiser for the Pulaski Music Boosters. Jake Leigh, a graduated tuba player, said, I enjoy Concert on the Concourse every year. The pie and ice cream is great to have after we perform.

In the All About Dogs class, students mold clay to make ornaments for their dogs.

By Candice Matuszak This summer, there is a summer school class called All About Dogs that takes place at the middle school. In this class, students participate in activities such as making ornaments out of clay, making bandanas, picture frames, homemade dog biscuits, and puppy chow. They also have had dog visitors which have included a safety dog, a therapy dog, and Raider the drug dog. This class will also be taking a field trip to the veterinarian office in Pulaski. The students learn about dogs, safety, the different breeds of

dogs, dog jobs, and they do a lot of crafts that enhance their creativity. My favorite part would be when we made bandanas and when the dogs visit. I have two dogs, so its really cool to make stuff for them, said Alysse Urcavich. The teacher of this class is Jodie Walker, and she has been teaching summer school for about two years. There are about 24 to 30 students in each class, and there are two classes total, with students from grades third through sixth.

The Pulaski Red Raider Marching Band waits for drum major Colin Duke and drum majorette Tamara Deneys to begin the song Rebel Yell.

Touch it up

Students hop on the Magic School Bus

Sandra Schmidt and her students use IPod Touches in their summer school class.

By Taylor Maccoux and Laura Dahms As technology becomes more prominent in schools, summer school helps educate students in the new advances of their generation. In the IPod Touch summer school class, Sandra Schmidt directs students how to work

10-digit dialing procedure to debut

Residents and Businesses Prepare for Area Code Overlay; Current 715 Phone Numbers to Keep Area Code Residential and business customers within the existing 715 area code should be prepared for the introduction of the 534 area code. Cellcom reminded customers today that as of July 17, 2010, all customers located in the 715 area code will be required to dial the area code + seven-digit number (10-digit dialing) when making local calls from both landline and wireless phones. The most important facts that consumers and businesses need to know about the upcoming 534 area code overlay are: -Beginning on July 17, 2010, customers in the 715 area code must use the new 10-digit dialing procedure for all local calls. After this date, local calls made without the area code will not complete and a recording will instruct callers to hang up and dial again. -The dialing procedure for long distance or operator assisted calls will not change. -All customers with a 715 area code telephone number today will keep the 715 area code for that number. -Phone numbers with the new 534 area code may be assigned after August 14, 2010. -The price of a call, local and long-distance calling areas and other rates and services of your provider will not change as a result of the area code overlay. What is a local call now will remain a local call regardless of the number of digits dialed. -You will still dial three digits to reach 911. If 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711 and 811 are currently available in your community, or from your provider, you will still dial them with just three digits. In addition to changing their local dialing procedure, customers in the 715 area code will need to reprogram their automatic dialing equipment and any other equipment that is currently programmed to dial a 7-digit local number.

with the IPod Touch and make it useful for their educational activities. This is Schmidts fourth year teaching summer school but her first year with this class. There are two classes a day with between 20 and 30 students in each class. Students from grades second to ninth participate in learning the technology. Every day, each student gets his/her own IPod to use during the class. They are then instructed in activities, which can fit into the following categories: school, challenge, group, or free time. This allows them to get first-hand experience with technology while reviewing school subjects such as math and language. The students really seem to enjoy the brain challenge games, said Schmidt. I like playing the games, said student Jacob Wittman. Learning about IPods is fun.

By Laura Dahms and Taylor Maccoux Take a ride on the Magic School Bus in Tracy Wiedemans summer school class at Pulaski Community Middle School. With about 20 students in each class, Wiedeman teaches 2 classes of second through fifth graders. Wiedeman has taught summer school for the past 10 years. She decided to teach the Hop on the Magic School Bus class simply because she loved the educational series. This class was my idea, said Wiedeman. I love Magic School Bus. It has something new and fun every day. Ms. Frizzle and the gang take the summer school students on new adventures into space, the rainforest, the ocean, and more every class period. Along with viewing a new episode each day, students make a project that relates to the topic they learned, followed by a corresponding snack. Overall, the students learn little bits of information from a variety of important topics, mostly relating to science and its application in history. A participant in the class said, I really like the Magic School Bus class. We get snacks every day.

Children from the Hop on the Magic School Bus class show off the paper airplanes they made during the dynamics of flight unit.

POLKA into SAVINGS with our advertisers

The Hofa Park Panthers traveled to Shawano on June 10 to take on the Lobos in an exhibition game and dropped a 1-0 decision in nine innings in a game scheduled for seven. The winning run scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth with two out. The batter reached on a walk, moved to second on a passed ball and third on an infield ground out. The Panthers managed only two hits in the contest with Tyler Jacobson and Troy Leiskau each singling. The Lobos only managed one hit off of Hofa Park pitching but still came away with the victory. Matt Zittlow started the game and pitched three innings, allowing the only hit in the second inning while walking two and striking out two. Jacobson then threw the next five innings, not allowing a hit while walking two and striking out five. Jeff Lajeunesse took the loss in the game, walking two batters, hitting one, and striking out two. June 13 had the Navarino Rangers visit Krumrai Memorial Field in Hofa Park for a Dairyland League contest. The Panthers came away with a 5-1 victory to even their league record to 3-3. The Rangers struck first in the sixth inning with their only run, but Hofa Park answered with a run of its own to tie it. Matt Zittlow singled to open the inning, and Tyler Jacobson followed with a single. Jon Rupnos sacrifice bunt was thrown away to first base and allowed Zittlow to score. The Panthers added three more runs in the seventh inning. Trevor Gaura singled with one out, and Jake Pamperin followed with a single of his own. John Jarosinski then singled in Gaura and Rupno , followed with a two out single to score two more runs. Hofa Park finished the scoring in the eighth when Gaura hit a two single and AJ Crooks followed with a single. Mitch Socha then doubled in Gaura for the final margin of victory. Jarosinski, Rupno, and Gaura each had two hits as the Panthers totaled 13 in the game. Jeff Luedke picked up his third victory of the season, pitching eight and two-third innings, allowing one run on six hits while not walking a batter and striking out seven. June 19 had the Panthers travel to Nichols to take on the undefeated Nitros and came away with a hard fought 5-4 victory in 11 innings. Nichols jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the contest by plating two runs in the second inning and single runs in both the fourth and fifth innings. Hofa Park tied the game in the sixth inning; Chandler Hunkins lead off the inning with a single, and with one out John Jarosinski walked. Brent Belaire then hit a run, scoring double with two out and Ryan Rozmiarek followed with a three

Panthers are victorious

run home run to tie the game. Belaire then lead off the eleventh inning with another double and later scored on a fielders choice with no outs to plate the go ahead and eventual winning run. Belaire finished the game with two hits as did Hunkins and Rozmiarek. Dave Landers pitched the Panthers to victory throwing five and one-third innings of relief of Jeff Luedke. Landers allowed no runs on three hits and struck out four. Hofa Parks upcoming schedule includes a Dairyland League contest against the Bonduel Broncos on July 1 at 7:30 p.m., followed by the Bonduel Tournament held the week of July 5 to 9. The New London Merchants will then visit Hofa Park for an exhibition game on July 10 at 1:30 p.m., and the Panthers will then travel to Cecil on July 11 for a league game at 1:30 p.m. The Hofa Park Panthers finished second in the Pulaski Reds tournament held June 14 thru the 18. The Panthers started the tournament on Monday night with a 7-0 victory over the Navarino Rangers. Tyler Jacobson was the story of the game pitching a one hit shut-out. Jacobson walked one hitter in the fifth inning and allowed an infield single in the sixth for the only base runners allowed in the contest. He also struck out eight in seven innings. Hofa Park scored a single run in the first, two in the second, one in the third and three in the fourth to put the game out of reach. Jon Rupno ended the game three for four with an RBI, and Matt Zittlow, Jacobson, Troy Leiskau, Jeff Lajeuness,e and Ryan Rozmiarek each had one hit. The second round of the tournament had the Panthers taking on the Cecil Mudhens on Wednesday night.

Tyler Jacobson was three for four in the contest and John Jarosinski, Jeff Lajeunesse, Preston Hunkins, and Cody Haase each had two hits. The Panthers then took on the Bonduel Broncos in the Championship game on Thursday night and were defeated 14-10.

Bonduel then plated four runs in the fourth, but the Panthers fought back and retook the lead 10-8 after the fifth inning. The Broncos scored four more runs in the sixth and two in the seventh, and Hofa Park could not answer. Zittlow, Jacobson, Leiskau, and Rozmiarek had two hits each. Jacobson took the loss on the mound, allowing one earned run on five hits in three innings of relief.

Reyment helps bring scouting to Pulaski

By Taylor Maccoux Every year, hundreds of accomplished high school athletes go unnoticed by university coaches looking for new recruits. However, the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) strives to educate high school athletes on the recruiting process, as well as giving strategies to help get them noticed. As a National Collegiate Scout, Andy Reyment gives guidance to families of the Pulaski School District and surrounding areas. His main focus is to educate high school athletes and their families about the process to better that athletes chances of getting recognized and recruited. Its important for kids to know more about the rules, the regulations, and the process of recruiting, said Reyment. Reyment decided to help the Pulaski area because he grew up in Pulaski and still lives there. Pulaski is near and dear to my heart, said Reyment. It means more to me than any other district. Reyment drives to help young athletes live up to their sporting potential because he was once an athlete looking for a scholarship opportunity. At Pulaski High School, Reyment participated in football and track, receiving a scholarship for track at UW Parkside; he is the current holder of the 4 x 4 record in track at PHS. Besides working for NCSA, he also owns a remodeling business called Bath Renewal. The NCSA website provides the opportunity for athletes to begin building their recruiting resume for college coaches and to get evaluated by an NCSA Scout. In talking to families, Reyment offers advice and instruction as to best present an athlete to different colleges and coaches in his/her resume. A lot of kids who are really great athletes get overlooked, said Reyment. People need to stay informed. For more information from Reyment, contact (920) 9654575 or areyment@ncsasports. org.

Old Timers game held

The Pulaski 11U Baseball team recently won second place playing in the Oconto Baseball Tournament. Their record for the tournament consisted of four wins and one loss, which came in the championship game against De Pere. Members standing with their trophies are Dave Brant, Dominick Hendricks, Logan Zastrow, Jack Anderson, Logan George, Isaac Vandehei, Joel Vandehei, Jonah Wesoloski, Austin Smith, and Joe Franks. Not pictured is Griffin Robaidek. Participants, young and old, in the 2010 Old Timers game had lots of fun playing on Fathers Day.

Submitted by Dale Krumrai The annual Old Timers game

was held in Hofa Park on June 20 in conjunction with the church

picnic. A good-sized crowd came down to watch the old timers beat up on the young guy in a game with a lot of laughter and fun for all. Participants included Ralph Rozmiarek, Ron Kryger, Dick McDermid, Paul Rozmiarek, Joe Adamski, Scott Gueller, Bob Adamski, Dick Lajeunesse, Nate Kemp, Jay Robaidek, Joe Alger, Dave Jashinski and Josh Zablocki. A handful of some of the ballplayers children and grandchildren did the base running to save on some weary legs. Pitching for the old timers were Scott Gueller, Jay Robaidek, Dick McDermid and Dale Krumrai. No one got injured and everyone had a lot of fun. This was the 21st annual Old Timers game held on Fathers Day in Hofa Park.

New BMX track provides fun

Drew McDermid flies over the first jump of the BMX course in Pulaski as Logan Lom, Brayden Lom, and Ryan McDermid look on.


By Kevin Ripley While driving down St. Augustine, one will notice something very different at Memorial Park: a dirt BMX track filled with jumps. Anyone can use the course from sunrise to sunset, under the condition that protective equipment is definitely required. Tom Holewinski of the Village of Pulaski Publics Works department came up with the idea. I had seen kids riding their bikes where they shouldnt be, so I thought it would be a good idea to put dirt piles out there [at Memorial Park]. The dirt and gravel actually came from the past South St. Augustine Street construction project. The Village had been permitted to keep the excavated road; it was stored in the Pulaski compost area and hauled to the park to form the ramps. Brayden and Logan Lom and Drew and Ryan McDermid were first-timers at the track. This is the only bike place, and Im glad they made it, said Drew McDermid. Brayden Lom said, I like how I can get high on the jumps. People dont even have to always be in on the action to enjoy the track. Ryan Lom said that even watching the bikers is pretty fun. Among young public, the track has been a popular go-to spot for recreation. Its fun to have something to do instead of sitting at home, said Logan Lom. Its our first time here, and they seem to really enjoy it, said Cathy Lom about her two boys. The area that the track is located on used to have volleyball courts. However, the sand became too overgrown with weeds to be appealing. This winter, Public Works Department plans to use the Memorial Park parking lot for the ice rink. A liner will be installed with a barrier around the edges. Holewinski said, If police problems arise, the bike track will be turned into a parking lot, and we will use it as the ice rink.

What does September 1 mean for recruiting?

Submitted by Andy Reyment, National Collegiate Scout September 1 is right around the corner. Do you know the significance of that date in the recruiting world? If not, you need to take a step back from the process and educate yourself on the rules and regulations regarding your graduation class and sport. Below are a few simple guidelines for student athletes to review before moving forward in the fall. Seniors: September 1 should serve as a significant benchmark recruiting date for seniors. The reality is that for many sports, a majority of Division I scholarship offers have been given out and final evaluations will be completed. Division II and Division III recruiting will start to pick up. Although the actual timelines will vary slightly based on sport, every recruit should evaluate where he/ she stands. Are you happy with your recruiting situation? Official visits will be taken by thousands of senior recruits around the country over the next few months, and those are allowed on the first day of classes. Also, September 1 marks the beginning of an Evaluation Period for the football players, and other sports will soon follow. If youre not sure what an Evaluation Period is, then you havent read The Guide of College Bound Student Athletes published by the NCAA, and you should consider yourself behind with the recruiting process. The level of contact between recruits and coaches will soon start to pick back up from the lull in the later summer months. If you are not in close communication with several colleges by the end of September, you should re-evaluate your recruiting strategy. As a smart recruit you should look to match this rise in the level of communication with coaches by reaching out to more and more schools. If you havent already started to inquire about applications and visits, now is the time to do so. Be more direct with coaches about where you stand. If a school is going to be an option for you, great! However, if you sense that the school is not interested in you or it is not a good fit, take that school off your list and move on. Its important to note that DII, DIII, and NAIA coaches often wait until senior year before showing significant interest. Juniors: On this date, DI and DII college coaches are allowed to send written recruiting information (the date is different for mens basketball and mens ice hockey.) For many athletes this is the first point where a college coach can show serious interest. If youve taken the proper steps of researching schools during your freshman and sophomore years, you should have a target list of programs put together that you can reach out to. DI and DII coaches are now allowed to respond to your e-mails, so be sure to include questions. For some athletes, this will mark the first point where they start receiving written scholarship offers from schools. Remember to be on your toes, and respond to any information you receive, regardless of your initial interest in the school. The more options you have on the table, the better. Its important to note that recruiting does not start on September 1 of your junior year. Freshmen and Sophomores: Many experts have pointed out that the majority of recruits separate themselves from their recruiting competition during the freshman and sophomore years. The recruits who actively put together a serious recruiting game plan ultimately will have more success than those who wait until junior or senior year. While recruits cannot technically receive official recruiting letters or phone calls for the most part, they can take several important steps: -Receive an initial third party evaluation to determine what you need to improve to reach your ideal level of play. -Begin building an online athletic and academic resume. -Start researching colleges and universities. -Proactively reach out to college coaches through letters, phone calls, and unofficial visits. Make sure you understand how to do this properly so you dont hurt

your chances! -Educate yourself about the recruiting process. The reality is that in some sports, college coaches begin putting their recruiting lists together in seventh and eighth grade. Even more coaches will compile those lists when prospects are freshmen and sophomores. The work that freshmen and sophomores put into the recruiting process will dictate their position junior and senior year. Remember, this process will affect the rest of your lifewhy wait to get started? If you have any questions regarding recruiting please contact Andy Reyment at (920) 965-4574 or at areyment@ncsasports.org.

Parents Signature__________________________________

Even though the boating season has already begun, one must keep in mind that there are numerous laws and safety recommendations that go along with boating and that the boater shares the waters with over 635,000 other registered boaters in the state of Wisconsin. First of all, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has provided statistics of 2009 and 2010s injuries, fatalities, and other boat-related accidents to date. There have been at least seven fatal boating accidents this year alone. In 2009, there were a total of 16 fatal boating accidents. Of those fatalities, 88 percent were drownings, and none of those 88 percent wear wearing a PFD (Personal Floatation Device). Also, 38 percent of fatalities were OWIs (Operating While Intoxicated) with an average blood alcohol content level of 0.227, over three times the legal limit for Wisconsin. Finally, of the fatalities of 2009, 79 percent of them had not taken any form of boating safety instruction courses. Furthermore, the WDNR requires that certain equipment be on board and stowed appropriately on the vessel. First and foremost, every person must have a readily accessible PFD on board; this PFD must be wearable. Also, this PFD must be in a good and serviceable condition, and it must be of the proper size intended for the boater. Additionally, if a boat is 16 feet or longer, there must be a Type IV also on board, which is considered to be a throwable device. This throwable device must be available immediately to the boaters present. Secondly, if the boat has any enclosed compartments, regardless of the vessels size, you must have a fire extinguisher on board the boat, and it must be mounted where it is easily and readily able to be retrieved. If your boat is smaller than 26 feet, then it is required that you carry a Type B-1 fire extinguisher. If your boat is larger than 26 feet, you may be required to carry more extinguishers; check the boating regulation PDF link at the bottom of this article. The WDNR also requires that

you have fully-functional navigational lights. Lights are required by law to be on from sunset to sunrise, and during periods of restricted visibility. If youre going boating during the daytime and plan to stay out until dusk, check your boat lights prior to departing. The federal government requires that every boater on federal water ways, such as Lake Michigan, the Bay of Green Bay, the Fox River, or Lake Winnebago, carry at least three flares that arent past their expiration dates, and some sort of noise making device. Also, federal law requires that children under the age of 13 must wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved lifejacket while underway in an open vessel on federallycontrolled waters. Next, the WDNR has a series of safety precautions that are recommended for boaters. Check your local weather prior to departing; this is especially vital if you are embarking on a larger body of water. Also, if you have a marine band radio, you can receive constant weather updates with that device while you are out boating. If youre going to an unfamiliar boating location, it is recommended that you let someone you trust know where you are headed

and for how long you plan to be boating there. Furthermore, in case of a passenger falling overboard, it isnt a bad idea to carry a wool blanket to quickly re-heat the victim. Lastly, the WDNR states that anyone born after January 1 of 1989 is required by law to complete a state-approved boater safety course in order to operate a motor boat or personal watercraft. This course is available either online or by attending a classroom version. The online version can be found at www. boatexam.com or www.boat-ed. com. You can also consult the WDNR website boating safety page at http://dnr.wi.gov/org/es/ enforcement/safety/boatsaf.htm., for classroom locations or links to the safety course websites. If you or a friend know of any illegal boating activity or sight such an event, the WDNR can be contacted at 1-800-TIPWDNR (847-9367), or text us a tip beginning with TIPWDNR followed by a space to TIP411 (847411). For further information or questions contact the Brown County Conservation Warden, Andy Lundin, at (920) 662-5434 or e-mail him at Andrew.lundin@ wi.gov. Be safe, and enjoy the rest of the 2010 boating season.

China Wok burglarized

Submitted by Chief of Police Randal Dunford The Pulaski Police Department and Brown County Sheriffs Department is investigating the burglary at China Wok Restaurant located at 1170 Mountain Bay Road. Due to installed surveillance cameras located at the business next door, detailed pictures were obtained of a car believed to be a GM product, possibly Buick mid 90s to early 2000, maroon color, pulled in front of the restaurant, and parked without its lights on. The front glass door was broken with a large rock, which gave the subject entry. Approximately $350 to $400 dollars was taken from a cash jar. We believe this person is a white male with a beard, white baseball hat with unknown logo, approximately 190 to 225 pounds, and about six feet tall. The burglary occurred sometime from 1:30 to 2 a.m. on July 1. We believe this crime is also related to a burglary that occurred at Tammys Tack & Feed located at 14500 Velp Ave, Village of Suamico on June 30 around 12:34 a.m. Another burglary happened the same night at Sportswear Outlet located at 1566 Lineville Road, Village of Suamico on June 30 at 1:19 a.m. If anyone has any information related to this crime that will assist the Pulaski Police Department and Brown County Sheriffs Department in this investigation, he/she is urged to call Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers at (920) 432-STOP (7867) or contact the Pulaski Police Department at (920) 822-5613 or Brown County Sheriffs Department at (920) 448-4210.

China Wok, a local Pulaski business, was broken into and robbed in the early morning hours of July 1. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken and the front door was smashed in by a rock to gain entry to the business.

Sobieski resident to lead Ag Innovation Center

The Central Wisconsin Agribusiness Innovation Center (CWAIC), a non-profit group that is establishing an agricultural business incubator near Owen, Wisconsin, has hired Sobieski resident Mike Kawleski as its first executive director. Kawleski, formerly the agriculture market leader at Wisconsin Public Service, will lead fundraising, tenant recruitment, and marketing for the Center. The Central Wisconsin Agribusiness Innovation Center (www.agribusinessinnovation. org) will be a multi-purpose facility with 48,586 square feet of business incubator space for agricultural entrepreneurs, large- and small-group classrooms, public meeting and event space, a commercial test/classroom kitchen, laboratory space, offices for lease, and a distance learning lab. It is a key component of a 71-acre agribusiness complex, the Clark County Agribusiness Technology Park, located just south of Highway 29. This facility is designed to foster education, training, research and business development in the fields of agribusiness, biotechnology, renewable energy and related industries, said Kawleski. Im pleased to be associated with the Center, because it ultimately will strengthen the regional economy, create new jobs in agriculture and green technologies, and train people for those careers. In addition, the state-of-theart building itself will be a learning tool, using sustainable design concepts for both the Innovation Center and the surrounding site. CWAIC will be seeking LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum rating from the U.S. Green Building Council, designating the building as green and environmentally-friendly as possible. The Center facility will cost approximately $9.8 million to construct, with funding coming from a variety of sources, such as cash and in-kind donations from individuals, companies, and foundations, as well as grants and loans from municipal, state, and federal entities. The federal Economic Development Administration has already awarded a $4 million grant for the design and construction of the building. Kawleski was raised on a family-owned dairy farm and sawmill operation near Junction City in Portage County. In 1976 to 1977, he served as the Wisconsin FFA President. He and his wife Jeanne have been married 25 years and have three children, Dan, Laura, and Amy. For more information, visit www.agribusinessinnovation.org.

Dealing with conflict in business

same pagejust listen first. The way to become a better listener is to practice active listening. This is where you make a conscious effort to hear not only the words that another person is saying but, more importantly, to try and understand the total message being sent. In order to do this you must pay attention to the other person very carefully. You cannot allow yourself to become distracted by what else may be going on around you, or by forming counter arguments that youll make when the other person stops speaking. Nor can you allow yourself to lose focus on what the other person is saying. All of these barriers contribute to a lack of listening and understanding. Dont jump to conclusions; get the facts straight first. Sometimes you just need to look into the situation. Sometimes you need to walk away or just take a breather before you determine what you need to do or how you need to approach the scenario; take a little time to think. When we have a conflict with a customer, what we like to do is find out what is wrong, and then check into things. In our business, we like to get the facts first. We will pull the entire work order, find out what might have happened, determine who may be at fault, and then figure out what we are going to do to make the situation right. Do what is right. If you are wrong or right, come to an agreement that you both can accept. If you are wrong, if you made a mistake, deal with it. Apologize to the customer, and ask your customer what you can do to make the situation right. If it means printing shirts overthen print them over. If it means giving a discount to them for a cheeseburger that should have been a hamburgerthen give them a discount. Do what you need to do to make the situation right. You may loose a little money upfront, but in the end the customer will remember what you did to make them happy, and youve increased your chance of keeping that customer. Even if you are right in the situation and the customer is wrong, try to come up with a workable agreement. Remember, you really do not want the customer to go away angry. Meet Face to face. Most recently, I had a situation on the phone with a vendor, and to put it mildly I was extremely upset by the end of our conversation. I told my vendor I would check into things and call him back in the morning. I knew what I had to do. It was the morning after, and I jumped in my car and drove 30 miles right to my vendors door. We met directly, face to face with my vendor, whom was the president of the company as well. This was the best thing that I could have done. Sometimes just looking the person in the eye is what you need to do. It turned out that we both had a bad day prior to the phone call. We probably should never have picked up the phone that day, but we resolved the situation by the time I had left. All in all, confrontation is inevitable in business or even in your personal life. People are different and so are their personalities; conflict will happen. Each one of us must learn how to deal with it in a positive manner. Following some of these basic tips will help you do just that, and believe me, you will learn from every situation. Most importantly you will become a better person and as a result, a better business person. Conflictmeet it head on! Tammy Brzeczkowski has over 20 years in the marketing and advertising field.

Submitted by Tammy Brzeczkowski, co-owner of Dynamic Designs In all of my years as a business person, one of the things I hate most is conflict. Ive certainly had my share of it. From dealing with vendors that are jerks to dealing with sticky family situations Ive seen a lot. I believe that Ive learned to deal with it too. Most importantly, from every situation that Ive dealt with conflict in my business, with volunteer organizations, and even with friends and family, I must say that Ive become a better person from every encounter Ive had. H ere are some tips for dealing with conflict: Listen. One of the most important skills is listening. People remember only 25 to 50 percent of what we hear. That means that when you talk to your boss, colleagues, customers, spouse, or children for 10 minutes, they only really hear 2.5 to 5 minutes of the conversation. Talking back, screaming, or yelling doesnt cut it either. A good example of this is having a customer upset with you because the product they received isnt exactly what they wanted. Take the time to actually hear what the customer is saying and how they are saying it. Repeat back to them what you think you are hearing, so you are both on the

Learn investing tips from Earhart

Submitted By Andy Sulskis You may not realize it, but July 24 is Amelia Earhart Day. July 24 was chosen because its the birthday of perhaps the most famous female aviator in history. Earharts story ended tragically when she became lost in the Pacific Ocean in 1937 on her voyage around the world, but she is still celebrated for her bravery and pioneer spirit. As an investor, you can learn a lot from Earharts career. Here are a few lessons to consider: Plan ahead. After a lengthy analysis of Earharts final flight, decades after it occurred, a noted aviation expert came to one succinct conclusion: poor planning, worse execution. Yet on her successful flights, Earhart was known to have produced, and followed, detailed flight plans. As an investor, you, too, must plan your journey toward your financial goals. First, you need to identify your destination, such as a comfortable retirement. Next, you must create a map to reach your goal, in the form of a detailed financial strategy based on an investment portfolio tailored to your risk tolerance and time horizon. And along the way, you must chart your progress via regular reviews of your investments performance. Use the right tools. Some sources have noted that, on the fateful flight, Earhart did not appear to fully understand how to use her planes directionfinding loop antenna, which at the time was a new technology. If you dont fully understand the tools that is, the investments you need to help achieve your goals, you may run into difficulties. Always know exactly what youre investing in and why youve chosen those specific investments. Without this information, you could end up with investments that are either too risky for your comfort or too conservative for your goals. Follow your vision. On the day they disappeared, Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were scheduled to land on Howland Island. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day; some researchers speculate that the clouds dark shadows on the ocean surface may have camouflaged Howland and confused the aviators. As an investor, you need a clear view of what you want to accomplish in the long term and you need to avoid having your vision clouded over by short-term events such as price drops and recessions. Put sufficient power in your portfolio. Many aviation scholars and researchers believe Earharts plane simply ran out of gas before she could land on Howland Island. Does you portfolio have sufficient fuel to help you go the distance? Specifically, do you have the right mix of growthand income-oriented vehicles to power you toward college for your kids, a comfortable retirement and your other goals? If youre not sure, you may want to work with a professional financial advisor to get the assistance you need. You probably will never try to circumnavigate the globe in a small plane. But if you can emulate the best features of Amelia Earhart such as her courage, perseverance and faith in the future while taking steps to help focus on what you can control, your investment journey may be rewarding.

What is there to do in a small community like Pulaski?

By Lori Stephan Broker/ Owner since 1999 ABR, CRB, CRS, GRI Country Pride Realty, Inc.
It is a small town! Thats one of the nice things about Pulaski. Residents are attracted to the heart of this small town and the surrounding areas. It has small town coziness and old-fashioned character which draws people to live here. But there is still a lot of stuff to do! You can choose from

all kinds of activities (or none at all if you want to be left alone). We have a great library and music program (for adults and children) and garden clubs and churches and cable television and fabulous biking on the bike trail and a very active senior center. We have an awesome Historical Society and Chamber of Commerce. Then theres polka dancing and hiking and shopping and gambling and tennis and swimming and golf (four nearby courses within 30 minutes).and lets not forget horseback riding, fishing, boating, skydiving and the New Zoo. Is there a Saks Fifth Avenue nearby? UhNot within walking distance. But on the other hand, we have some of the best shopping opportunities within a 45 minute drive. Lots of small local shops, coffee shops and restaurants and several food chain stores as well and a newer Super Value grocery store and hardware stores. All of them are staffed by friendly, local people who havent forgotten how to care. More? Ok. We have good builders and plumbers and electricians and barbers and beauty shops. And we have good mechanics and lawyers and just about any service youll find in any other fair sized town. There are several good insurance agencies and a really good real estate brokerage company in town (thatd be us at Country Pride). We also have excellent banks, mortgage lenders and an investment company. Add to the list is a great police and fire department and caring Village Board officials and employees. Oh yeah, lets not forget our super Pulaski Schools and their staff! Go Red Raiders! Plus, we must mention our fabulous programs like PACE and Positively Pulaski! So how are the people? Mainly nice (with a few grouches mixed in for contrast). Suppose to be about 3,382 of us in the Village. About 18,002 of us live within the area of the Pulaski School District. Its a pleasure? If you ever find yourself thinking about moving to the rural Pulaski area, I can point you in the right direction. Why just the other day, I met a young couple from Green Bay and sort of on a whim showed them a really lovely three bedroom home. They fell in love with the place. It had some really nice updates and wonderful landscaping. And wouldnt you know, they bought the place. Just like that. I can put you in touch with numerous properties for sale. Right now is an excellent time to buy! Rates are low and there are a lot of awesome deals out there! Youd be surprised how much home you can buy for the money. So if you ever think about a move, please feel free to contact me.

Willy Wonka cast visits three hospitals

The directors and cast of Willy Wonka visit the Skydeck Ledge in Chicago.

By Laura Dahms and Taylor Maccoux Instead of visiting the world of pure imagination, members of the cast of the middle school musical Willy Wonka visited and performed at hospitals in Madison and Chicago. However, the trip did not lack in sweetness. Initially, Willy Wonka was performed on April 30, May 1, and May 2 for friends and family at Pulaski Community Middle School. The musical was codirected by Sarah Kohls for her fifth year and by Amy Wright for her ninth year. For his ninth year,

Joe Diefenthaler served as technical director, and for her first year, Molly Suehs served as assistant director. The directors wanted to take the musical beyond the community to benefit others. We wanted the cast members to realize how fortunate they are. We also wanted them to learn the value of serviceto give to those less fortunate. Our goal was that they would see that service is a great thing. I hope they learned that giving smiles is service too, said co-director Kohls. To prepare for the hospital per-

formances, directors condensed the 200 cast and crew members to just 15 and the musical itself to just 35 minutes long. It was a lot of work, but cast, crew, and directors looked forward to the upcoming shows. Kohls said, We went to hospitals with Suessical the Musical. It was so amazing that we decided to do it again with Willy Wonka. Besides performing for the patients, they hoped to raise a generous amount of money to donate to the hospitals. On May 22, they held a fundraising event

Co-director Sarah Kohls gives representatives from Shriners hospital for Children a donation of $2,000 from the Willy Wonka proceeds.

The cast of the musical Willy Wonka perform at the Shriners Hospital for Children.

with a scrumpdidilyumptious dinner and a performance of Willy Wonka to follow. Volunteers who made the dinner theater possible were Trina Townsend, Ken Hall, Cindy Egnarski, Laurie Olson, and Arlene Zuleger. Also, the directors give a huge thank you to the many people and businesses who contributed hard work, help, and donations to the show. The directors said, The dinner theater event would not have happened if it werent for these very special people. Without their help, planning, and expertise, we would have never been able to host such a fantastic event. Through the dinner theater, the cast was able to collect $4,000 to donate to the hospitals. The directors and 15-member cast traveled to Madison to perform at the UW Hospital and the American Family Childrens Hospital on June 7. They were the first members of a musical to ever perform at the adult UW Hospital. In Chicago the next day, the group visited Shriners hospital. The cast members were very excited to visit the hospitals. Many said it was the greatest experience of their lives so far, said

Kohls. They loved having time to mingle with patients. They realized just how lucky they are to be healthy. Even though the stage and audience were different at each hospital, the magic, creativity, and energy of the musical remained. Together, patients and cast members experienced the enchantment of Willy Wonka, Charlie, Oompa Loompas, and the chocolate factory, where all troubles fade away. The patients were happy to see kids their age. They were so grateful. We brightened their day. That was just what we wanted to give them happiness, joy, and an extra smile, said Kohls. We also wanted to brighten the day for the families, doctors, and nurses as well. Through the cast of Willy Wonka, hospital patients could forget everyday life as they got a first-class golden ticket into the world of pure imagination. Next years middle school musical will begin on April 14, 2011. Also, be sure to check out members of the cast on their very own Willy Wonka float during the Polka Days Parade.

After visiting the UW Hospital and the American Family Childrens Hospital in Madison, the cast of Willy Wonka visited the Shriners Hospital for Children.
