Li'l Abner at the Engler Center- VIDEO
"Li'l Abner" is being performed by Calumet County Community Theatre at the Engler Center for the Performing Arts (Chilton High School). Performances took place July 10-11 and additional performances will take place July 16-17 at 7 p.m., and July 18 at 2 p.m. Advanced tickets are $10 and at-the-door are $12. The public may reserve tickets online at: www.engler center.com. Kyle R. Pingel serves as director. Music director is Shawn Postell; choreographer is Miki Wise and vocal director is Aaron Juhl. Li'l Abner is a musical with a book by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, music by Gene De Paul, and lyrics by Johnny Mercer. Based on the comic strip Li'l Abner by Al Capp, the show is, on the surface, a broad spoof of hillbillies but is also a pointed satire taking on any number of topics, ranging from an incompetent United States federal government to standards of masculinity.The plot centers on two things: first, Dogpatch, the town that is the main setting of the comic strip, has been declared the "most unnecessary town" in the U.S. and is set to be turned into a nuclear testing site; second, the baby tonic (Yokumberry Tonic) that Abner has been fed all his life by his mother, Mammy Yokum, is discovered to be a potion that makes men strong and handsome, but also utterly uninterested in romance. The town is ultimately saved when a plaque is discovered declaring that its local hero and Town Founder, the Confederate General Jubilation T. Cornpone was, by virtue of his incompetence, so instrumental in the defeat of his own army as to be a hero of the Republic. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO VIEW THE VIDEO

NH Aquatic Center Open House and Dedication - VIDEO
The first official splashes made into the still waters of the New Holstein Aquatic Center followed its dedication in ceremonies held July 4 at the community pool. The children whose essays caught the eye of the judging committee on why they wanted to be among the first to cascade down the water slides were Teddy Schnell, Janna Meyer and Ronald Balazs. New Holstein Mayor Dianne Reese praised community leaders whose vision made it happen and cited it as a project that was truly doable. New Holstein Kiwanis chairperson Jerry Hallstrom spoke of the history of pool construction in New Holstein. He told how Irwin Heus donated three acres of land and how the city of New Holstein purchased another 3.3 adjacent acres for $1,000 and how the former pool cost $65,000 with Tecumseh Products having donated $25,000 of that. That pool opened in June of 1961. "And now 48 years later you see what we have accomplished," said Hallstrom. Swimming pool committee chairman Gene Woelfel told those gathered for the open house and dedication that in making decisions about the new pool discussion focused about what would best meet the needs of the community, especially the children.

Art in a Suitcase - VIDEO
Mary Tooley, the suitcase lady, says, "I like to think of Art In A Suitcase as a little natural history museum that travels. The young people and I talk about the people, places and animals that make planet earth such a wonderful home."

Mary entertained children and families at the Kiel Community Center on July 1 for an hour long discussion of art, using one's imagination and how an American artist taught elephants how to paint. Mary Tooley taught art to young children for 20 years. She now does Art In A Suitcase full time, presenting her original programs to over 20,000 children each year. She presented a book written by Katya Arnold an artist and a teacher at St. Ann's School in Brooklyn, who wrote "Elephants Can Paint Too!" This work features photographs of both children and elephants painting. (Young readers will be fascinated by how an elephant holds the paintbrush - with a crossbar added to the handle, the animal can hold it in its trunk.) With her husband, the artist Alex Melamid, Arnold became interested in the plight of elephants in Asia that had lost the traditional jobs they once performed. When Thailand cut back on logging, for example, at least 3,000 domesticated elephants were no longer needed for hauling felled trees. What to do with all those elephants no longer earning their keep? Arnold and Melamid got the idea to establish schools to teach elephants to paint, and their foundation sells the pictures on its Web site. Tooley expressed the importance of imagination, nature and art in her presentation. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO VIEW THE VIDEO

DNR representative talks about Emerald Ash Borers - VIDEO
DNR Representative Tracy Salisbury presented information concerning the likelihood of infestation of Emerald Ash Borers to the city of Chilton and surrounding areas. Her presentation and discussion was held during a city council meeting June 2, 2009.

The adult emerald ash borer is a metallic green insect about one-half inch long and one-eighth inch wide. The adult female deposits eggs on the bark of ash trees. The larvae hatching from the eggs chew their way through the bark, and into the soft layer of wood just beneath. There, they eat their way through the tree's vascular system, cutting off the flow of water and nutrients in the tree, leading to decline and eventual death of the tree. EAB is native to Asia and is thought to have arrived in the United States in the early 1990s in suburban Detroit. EAB has also been found in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Illinois, West Virginia, Virginia, Missouri and the Canadian Provinces of Quebec and Ontario.

There are an estimated 765 million ash trees in Wisconsin's forests and, on average, one in five urban trees is a species of ash. Officials with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection and the Department of Natural Resources announced the emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed in Vernon County in April 2009. The tiny, invasive beetle, whose larva destroys North American ash trees, was discovered in Victory, a small community along the banks of the Mississippi River, about 20 miles south of La Crosse. One of the first steps in responding to any infestation will be to quarantine movement of hardwood firewood, ash nursery stock, ash timber or any other article that could spread EAB out of the infested area.

Hedrich goat farm - VIDEO
Larry and Clara Hedrich always wanted to raise their family on a farm. They probably never figured 30 plus years later they'd have over 400 crying kids.

A few months after marrying in the summer of 1978, the couple purchased a home and farm just outside of Chilton's city limits. It came with all of the hopes and dreams an adventurous farming couple could ask for; enough outside room to roam, ample bedrooms to fill with children and an outbuilding with just two goats.

The couple became involved with Quality Dairy Goat Producers Cooperative of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Dairy Goat Association, in addition to their community interests with the Chilton School Board, Calumet County Fair board and the accomplishments of their children. It was a cooperative family initiative to run the farm and household in between the changing seasons. LaClare Farm climbed a few rungs of their own last March with an award from the Wisconsin Cheese Maker's Association. They were awarded second place in the United States Championship Cheese Contest for the category of "hard goat milk cheese". They entered with Team Saxon. The farmers have also been approached by a California based yogurt company to use their milk for frozen yogurt and lactose friendly specialty items. Specialty soaps made from their goat milk are available for purchase through the LaClare farm's website. CLICK THE HEADLINE TO VIEW THE VIDEO
