“My instructors, Dwane Klostermann and Linda Bau, as well
as my program advisor, Ronaldo Cordeiro, have all been extremely helpful in furthering my
education,” Bubolz said. “They
have made the MLT program
very interesting and exciting. I
received this award because of
their hard work and dedication
to the laboratory profession, as
well as all the hard work I put
into my education.”

be an MLT because I wanted a
career in healthcare so I could
apply science and math to help
patients on the road to recovery,”
Bubolz said. “My motivation to
completing this program came
from my grandmother, who
passed away from cancer. The
laboratory is the first line of defense when it comes to detecting
cancer.”

Beaver Dam, Daily Citizen
LBD grads latest class
The eighth class of Leadership
Beaver Dam held its graduation
May 11, at The Watermark
Community Center.
After a social time with hor
d’oeuvres, the class and guests
were welcomed by Chamber
President Phil Fritsche and
Walmart representative Brian
Gruelke.
Representatives
from
the class, Marie Jacobs and
Shawn Madeiros, addressed
those gathered with words of
appreciation for the program
and for the relationships that
were built during their nine
months together in leadership
training.
Leadership Beaver Dam is a
program of the chamber that
is dedicated to prepare the
next generation of community
leaders. There were 17 students
in this year’s class representing
three generations of leaders.
The seeds for this program
were sown in 2006 when Phil
Fritsche (Chamber), Karen
Coley (Moraine Park Technical
College) and Mark Molldrem
(First
Lutheran
Church)
began a discussion of creating
a leadership development
program for Beaver Dam,
modeled
after
successful
programs in larger communities
in Wisconsin and Michigan.
By 2008, the first class was
assembled and since then 123
students have gone through the
course.
SUBMITTED
In back, from left, are Shawn Madeiros, Green Valley Enterprises; Wayne
Schmitz, Beaver Dam Senior Center; Jennifer Hall, Wal-Mart; Jeremy
Mason, Beaver Dam Community Hospital; JoLene Butler, Mother Earth
Cleaners; Mike Forster, Kraft Heinz Co.; Tekla Wlodarczyk-Nunez, Mother
Earth Cleaners; Amy Patterson, Moraine Park Technical College; Eric
Alvin, Beaver Dam Unified School District; Tim Kelly, Wal-Mart; Chelli
Roeder, Good Karma Broadcasting; Rebecca Droessler, Beaver Dam
Unified School District; Dave Brown, Wal-Mart. In front, from left, are
Paula Daniels, Summit Credit Union, Marie Jacobs, American National
Bank & Mary Fitzgerald, American National Bank.
The program consists of oncea-month, day-long sessions
for nine months wherein the
students explore various aspects
of the community by visiting
the Dodge County Historical
Society, schools, the hospital,
non-profits, City Hall and
businesses for an immersion
experience, and then spending
time in leadership development
activities
centering
on
understanding oneself and
others, communication skills,
project planning and problem
solving.
One of the key components of
the program is the project that
the students choose, design and
implement for the sake of the
community.
This year the students
divided up into three groups to
accomplish:
1) a fund-raiser for the
Skateboard/BMX Track at the
new Patrick Parker Conley Park;
2) a Help Your Neighbor
online platform to connect
people with needs with people
with skills and time to address
those needs; and
3) A health initiative that
partnered with the hospital to
devise ways to promote and
foster healthy living ideas,
including promoting the tenets
of Blue Zone communities.
Joel Winter, chair of the LBD
Steering Committee concluded
the evening with comments of
appreciation not only for the
students’ investment of time
and passion in this program,
but also for the 125 businesses
and individuals who partnered
to make this year’s program
such a success. John Ley,
chair of the LBD Alumni
Board then invited the class
into the continuing journey
of leadership growth in the
community (at home, at work,
in various organizations and
activities).
“This is just the beginning;
and what a great beginning for
greater things to come from
you,” he said, wrapping up the
evening ceremonies.
Applications for the next
LBD class beginning September
2016 are being accepted at the
Chamber. Flyers explaining
the details and schedule of the
program and application forms
are available at the Beaver Dam
Chamber of Commerce, 127 S.

and share your knowledge freely to help build others. Be a mentor
when you can, and be intentional about finding one for yourself.
Use your manners – say thank you, make eye contact and smile a
lot. Know your weaknesses, but focus on your strengths. Take risks
and make mistakes – there’s no better learning opportunity. Have
fun and don’t take yourself too seriously. Above all, whatever it is
that you decide to do with your life – work hard to be your very
best.”

from Horicon and West Bend east and west high schools were judged on three
and Gas Metal Arc Welding.
Clark said the field was strong this year, as the high school students got a hands-on
taste of both the possibilities and pressures that come in the welding field.
“Competitions like this get these students out of the welding labs they are used to,
using equipment they are not familiar with, competing against friends and strangers,
while trying to do their best,” Clark said. “Our competition uses industry standards for
weld prints, welding symbols, weld quality, and weld applications that most high school
students don’t get exposed to during their regular classes at school, showing them a
different level they have the opportunity to explore and aspire to in the MPTC Welding
program.”
West Bend East High School technology education teacher Jacob Gitter said this
provides a valuable platform for his students.
“Welding competitions like this one, provide students with a great opportunity to prove
their skills and interact with professionals in the welding trades,’ Gitter said.
The winners this year were both from West Bend. Senior Rikki Boldt won the SMAW
and GMAW welding processes, while fellow senior Andrew Voss won for GTAW.
“It was a great learning experience that challenged my skills,” Bolt said.
Other participants from West Bend included senior Steven Pfaff and juniors Isaac
Schrage, Leo Miller and Erik Haver.
Horicon High School students competing in the welding competition included seniors
Nick Kufalk, Tytan Gress and Tyler Kirkland, along with junior Alec Langkav.
The welds were scored by area professionals from Mayville Engineering Company. The

Moraine Park connection. They were part of a training class Moraine Park conducted
last fall and this spring to get them ready to take the three-part, six-hour tests with the
American Welding Society to obtain their Certified Welding Inspector credentials. All
four passed.
Crimmings said the students’ work was impressive to see.
“I give all the students who participated a lot of credit. The contest put them into
situations where they were welding out of position, welding around boxes in tight
areas, and correctly applying weld callouts. Many professionals struggle in those
situations,” Crimmings said.
Clark encouraged anyone considering a career in welding to take a look, because jobs
are in demand.
“Welding career opportunities are abundant in the MPTC district, and our Welding and
Metal Fabrication programs are designed to develop the skills necessary to start those
careers. Our instructors have the on-the-job experiences needed to show students
what’s going to be expected of them in the business,” Clark said.

Feingold Says Johnson Flight 93 Comments Distract From Real Issues In The Campaign
Former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold says comments Senator Ron Johnson made comparing the Senate
election to the vote passengers took on United Flight 93 to rush terrorists who took over the flight were ill
chosen. Feingold says there are enough real issues in the campaign to comment on. He says middle
income and working families are having a hard time paying their bills so issues like the minimum wage,
family leave, the cost of a college education and prescription drugs should be discussed. Senator Johnson
later retracted his statements about United Flight 93. Johnson unseated Feingold in the 2010 election and
Feingold is trying to win it back.

Owners Of Wayside Tavern Ordered To Take Down Building And Clean Up Site
Owners of a Fond du Lac tavern destroyed by fire in February have been ordered to take down its remains.
According to the City’s Community Development Department City inspectors sent a notice to the owners of
the Wayside Bar & Grill on West Division Street to clean up the site and remove the fire damaged building
now that the investigation is complete. Investigators determined the blaze was intentionally set and a $5,000
reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest. The Wisconsin Arson Hotline is 1-800-3623005.
Zika Virus Raises Concerns For Pregnant Women
Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says the segment of the population they are most
concerned about becoming infected with the Zika virus is pregnant women or those women planning to have
a baby. The virus can cause problems with the development of the brain in a fetus. She says although it’s
more commonly spread through the bite of a mosquito, it can also be sexually transmitted. She
recommends protecting yourself by using condoms or even abstaining from sex. Wisconsin reported its first
case of the Zika virus this past week.
New NFDL Ambulance Will Be At Fire And EMS Open House Today
North Fond du Lac residents can get a peak at the Village’s new ambulance during an open house Saturday
at the Village’s Fire and EMS Station on Garfield Street. Hours are from 1 to 3 p.m. Randy Stutz is the
Deputy Chief of the Village EMS Division. Stutz says he had a chance to travel to New Jersey where the
ambulance was being assembled. He says a couple weeks ago he flew out there and spent about 10 hours
in the factory as the ambulance was coming off line. Stutz says the open house is part of their celebration of
National EMS Week. He says in addition to the new ambulance people can take tours, get CPR instruction,
get free blood pressure checks, enjoy free food and participate in some raffles.
MPTC Employees Honored
Moraine Park Technical College President Bonnie Baerwald says they are proud of all their employees and
recently showed that appreciation during an event. She says a total of 68 former and current employees
were honored. She says 13 retirees and 55 current employees took part in the recognition event. She says
the 13 retirees put in a combined 272 years of service to Moraine Park. Meanwhile today is about students,
the college will hold its commencement exercises at the Fond du Lac High School Field House at 10 a.m.
About 350 students are expected to take part in the ceremony.

Plymouth Getting Grant For Downtown Project
The City of Plymouth has been awarded a $100,000 state grant to assist in a project to renovate a historic
building in downtown Plymouth. The building, built in 1875, is located at 133 E. Mill Street. Cheesemaking
has long been a part of Plymouth history. The project will consist of bringing the building back to its historic
form. A cheese-themed store and heritage center will be established on the first floor of the building, and
apartments on the second floor. This project is one of three key physical improvement projects for the
downtown area of Plymouth.

Board Will Discuss Dogs In Parks
Fond du Lac’s Advisory Park Board will begin a discussion today about whether to allow dogs in City parks.
The City Council recently referred the matter to the board. It could be the first of multiple discussions before
the board on the subject. At their last meeting the City Council kicked around ideas on whether there should
be a pilot program in just one park, if dogs should be on a leash and limited to walking and bicycling trails,
and other ideas. The board will also elect officers at this meeting, which is at 5:30 p.m. at the City-County
Government Center in Room F and G.
Health Officials Aware Of FDL Drinking Issues
Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says learning Fond du Lac was among the drunkest
cities in America comes as no surprise. She says the fact that 12 Wisconsin cities landed on the list by 24/7
Wall Street was a little surprising. But she says the ranking wasn’t just based on how many people drink to
excess. She says it also had to do with the number of taverns, how far apart they are, and where schools
fall within that radius. She says health officials in the County knew about the drinking problem through a
community health assessment. She says it ranked in their top four priorities so they knew the County has a
big issue with drinking. She says the good news is there are coalitions within the County that are working on
reducing the problem. On that 24/7 Wall Street list, Fond du Lac ranked 7th in the nation.

FDL Housing Authority Will Have To Pay More For Refuse Pickup In NFDL
The North Fond du Lac Village Board recently decided the Fond du Lac Housing Authority should be paying
the village more for refuse pickup in addition to what they pay the village in lieu of taxes. Village
Administrator Chuck Hornung says the discussion evolved out of previous discussions about their pickup up
of refuse from non-owner occupied duplexes. He says the Housing Authority makes payment in lieu of taxes
instead of property taxes on the 12 facilities they own in the Village. He says the question had to do whether
that was fair when to residents who pay property taxes and refuse collection costs. He says the board felt
the Housing Authority should pay more, which will come to about $1,200.

plate. She says it’s unlike your usual government boards and committees because of the make up of its
membership. She says they are helping shape what the future of Fond du Lac will look like. She says
although the committee is in its infancy other cities have taken notice and inquired about how they can form
similar inquiries. She says City Manager Joe Moore informed the Council of that at a recent meeting.

Next month the Moraine Park Technical College District Board will consider approving a $51 million
operating budget. Moraine Park Vice President of Finance and Administration Carrie Kasubaski says tuition
will also be going up by 1.5 percent, which she says is still a very good value at $130 a credit. She says
property values are expected to increase so that will reduce the college’s mill rate and taxes on a $100,000

She says that will include updates for their health and wellness program at the West Bend campus, a new

Moraine Park Technical College recently challenged
area teens to "throw the distance."

a rubber ball. Whatever contraption gets the ball the
furthest is declared the winner.
Four high schools entered teams this year: Mayville, North Fond du Lac, Elkhart
Lake, and GPS Education Partners, a charter school in Jackson.
The college's annual Distance Challenge is a great way for students to learn
collaboration, hone their critical-thinking skills and have fun, said Tom Roehl, process
engineering technology instructor at Moraine Park.
“The competition is held as an opportunity for high school students to design, build and
test a device under the constraints of weight, time and budget in a fun and lowpressure environment,” Roehl said. “Students also win prizes donated by local
manufacturers and are exposed to career opportunities in manufacturing and
engineering."
This year there were six total entrants, four in the slingshot division and two in the
other division, both being catapults. The Distance Challenge was held at MPTC's Fond
du Lac campus.

"Each year that we have held this competition, I've been impressed with the creativity
shown by the students,” Roehl said. “This is an excellent project for high school
students because it requires design, manufacturing and troubleshooting, all of which
are skills that employers look for in skilled labor fields."

Beaver Dam, Daily Citizen
MPTC graduation held
Roughly 350 Moraine Park Technical College students walked up to
the commencement stage on Saturday, soaked in the moment, and
one-by-one wrapped their hands
around a diploma.
“No matter what path led us to
Moraine Park, and no matter what
different challenges all of us have
faced, we have not only become
stronger, but better versions of
ourselves,” said Kayla Ebert, who
was this year’s student speaker at
commencement. Ebert from Burnett, is Moraine Park’s Wisconsin
Technical College System 2015-16
District Student Ambassador, and
she graduated from the College’s
Human Resources program.
A quote by Paul Brandt—“Don’t
tell me the sky’s the limit when
there are footprints on the moon.”—
was the class motto adopted by the
graduates from the College’s Beaver
Dam, Fond du Lac and West Bend
campuses. The class of 2016 had
nearly 800 graduate candidates
complete their studies receiving
associate of applied science degrees
and technical diplomas.
Dr. James Eden, vice president of
academic affairs, presided over the
presentation of candidates with the
conferring of degrees and diplomas
done by Moraine Park President
Bonnie Baerwald. Kristen Finnel,
dean of Health and Human Services, and Dr. Fred Rice, dean of
Applied Technology and Trades,
announced the graduate candidates. From the Moraine Park District Board, Vice Chairperson Mike
Miller, Treasurer Kim Krueger, and
board members Candy Fields and
Lowell Prill recognized the graduates.
Gina Popp, president and CEO
of wisnet.com, in Fond du Lac, was
the 2016 Commencement keynote
speaker. Popp, encouraged the
graduates to find a place they are
appreciated, be passionate both
about what they do and who they
do it with, not take any successes
for granted, and not be afraid of
changes.
“We must be willing to embrace
change as it comes our way. Because
it’s those forks in the road that force
us to make those really important
decisions, leading us on paths that
we never intended to take,” Popp
said.
Miller, who welcomed the class
of 2016 and their guests to the ceremony, expressed to the graduates
how perseverance, determination
and the support of others had gotten them to this point. “This is also
a time to celebrate your successes
and forget your failures, because together they have gotten you where
you are today – earning your degree
or technical diploma.”
Baerwald extended her congratulations to the graduates and wished
each of them success in the great
opportunities and ever-changing
possibilities ahead.
“Whether your new path takes
you to the start of a new career, continued employment in your chosen
field, or continuation of your formal
education at a four-year college or

recognized the graduates.
Gina Popp, president and
CEO of wisnet.com, in Fond
du Lac, was the 2016 Commencement keynote speaker.
Popp, who is from Fond du Lac,
encouraged the graduates to find
a place they are appreciated, be
passionate both about what they
do and who they do it with, not
take any successes for granted,
and not be afraid of changes.
“I heard this statement long
ago, and it has stuck with me:
‘This is not a practice life.’ We
can’t set 5-, 10- and 20-year
plans that lead us on the wrong
path. We must be willing to
embrace change as it comes
our way. Because it’s those
forks in the road that force us
to make those really important
decisions, leading us on paths
that we never intended to take,”
Popp said.
Miller, who welcomed the
Class of 2016 and their guests
to the ceremony, expressed to
the graduates how perseverance,
determination and the support of
others had gotten them to this
point. “This is also a time to celebrate your successes and forget
your failures, because together
they have gotten you where you
are today – earning your degree
or technical diploma.”
Baerwald extended her congratulations to the graduates and
wished each of them success in
the great opportunities and everchanging possibilities ahead.
“Whether your new path takes
you to the start of a new career,
continued employment in your
chosen field, or continuation of
your formal education at a fouryear college or university, you
will be faced with the challenge
of adjusting to a constantly
changing world in the 21st century,” Baerwald said.

bagpiper Gina Crossley, with

by Brassination, a brass quintet
from the Fond du Lac area.

Moraine Park Class of 2016 looks forward to opportunities ahead
Nearly 350 participate in
commencement ceremony
The scene told many stories as
roughly 350 Moraine Park Technical College students walked
up to the commencement stage
on Saturday, May 21, soaked in
the moment, and one by one,
wrapped their hands around a
diploma – their diploma.
Relief. Pride. Validation.
Fulfillment. Gratitude. Pure, unbridled joy. These emotions and
more were readily on display
at Moraine Park’s 2016 Commencement Ceremony in the
Fond du Lac High School Field
House. But amidst an eclectic
mix of smiles and tears – whether seen on the faces of those
on stage or from proud family
members watching – there was
one unifying truth to connect all
these journeys.
“No matter what path led us
to Moraine Park, and no matter what different challenges
all of us have faced, we have
not only become stronger, but
better versions of ourselves,”
said Kayla Ebert, who was this
year’s student speaker at commencement. Ebert from Burnett,
is Moraine Park’s Wisconsin
Technical College System 201516 District Student Ambassador,
and she graduated from the
College’s Human Resources
program.
A quote by Paul Brandt –
“Don’t tell me the sky’s the
limit when there are footprints
on the moon.” – was the class
motto adopted by the graduates
from the College’s Beaver Dam,
Fond du Lac and West Bend
campuses. In all, the Class of
2016 had nearly 800 graduate candidates complete their
studies receiving associate of
applied science degrees and
technical diplomas.
Dr. James Eden, vice president
of Academic Affairs, presided
over the presentation of candidates with the conferring of
degrees and diplomas done by
Moraine Park President Bonnie
Baerwald. Kristen Finnel, dean
of Health and Human Services,
and Dr. Fred Rice, dean of Applied Technology and Trades,
announced the graduate candidates. From the Moraine Park
District Board, Vice Chairper-
son Mike Miller, Treasurer Kim
Krueger, and board members
Candy Fields and Lowell Prill
recognized the graduates.

HHS Students Compete at MPTC Welding Competition
MEC provides scoring
Horicon High School students were among people
who competed at a recent
welding competition at the
Moraine Park Technical
College (MPTC) welding
lab in Beaver Dam.
The competition had students square off in a competition of speed, skill and
accuracy in the college’s
annual high school welding
competition.
Supervised by Moraine
Park welding instructors
Larry Clark and Gary
Watry, students from Horicon and West Bend East
and West Bend West high
schools were judged on
three different welding
processes,
including
shielded metal arc welding
(SMAW), gas tungsten arc
welding (GTAW) and gas
metal
arc
welding
(GMAW).
Clark said the field was
strong this year, as the
high school students got a
hands-on taste of both the
possibilities and pressures
that come in the welding
field.
“Competitions like this
get these students out of
the welding labs they are
used to, using equipment
they are not familiar with,
competing against friends
and strangers, while trying
to do their best,” Clark
said. “Our competition
uses industry standards for
weld prints, welding symbols, weld quality and weld
applications that most high
school students don’t get
exposed to during their
regular classes at school,
showing them a different
level they have the opportunity to explore and aspire
to in the MPTC Welding
program.”
West Bend East High
School technology education teacher Jacob Gitter
said this provides a valuable platform for his students.
“Welding competitions
like this one provide students with a great opportunity to prove their skills and
interact with professionals
in the welding trades,” Gitter said.
The winners this year
were both from West
Bend. Senior Rikki Boldt
won the SMAW and
GMAW welding processes,
while fellow senior Andrew
Voss won for GTAW.
“It was a great learning
experience that challenged
my skills,” Bolt said.
Horicon High School students competing in the
welding competition included seniors Nick Kufalk,
Tytan Gress and Tyler Kirkland, along with junior Alec
Langkau.
The welds were scored
by area professionals from
Mayville Engineering Com-
pany, Inc. (MEC). The
judges – Alex Crimmings,
Chad
Clouse,
Chris
Benike, and Josh Pollesc –
also have a Moraine Park
connection. They were part
of a training class Moraine
Park conducted last fall
and this spring to get them
ready to take the threepart, six-hour tests with the
American Welding Society
to obtain their Certified
Welding Inspector credentials. All four passed.
Crimmings said the students’ work was impres-
sive to see.
“I give all the students
who participated a lot of
credit. The contest put
them into situations where
they were welding out of
position, welding around
boxes in tight areas, and
correctly applying weld
callouts. Many professionals struggle in those situations,” Crimmings said.
Clark encouraged anyone considering a career in
welding to take a look, because jobs are in demand.
“Welding career opportu-
nities are abundant in the
MPTC district, and our
Welding and Metal Fabrication programs are designed to develop the skills
necessary to start those
careers. Our instructors
have the on-the-job experiences needed to show students what’s going to be
expected of them in the
business,” Clark said.

metal fabrication programs,

Getting Out Information On Waupun Referendum
Waupun Schools Superintendent Tonya Gubin says there has been a lot of information about the district’s
proposed $36.8 million referendum already, but they will get more information out this fall. She says first the
school board has to approve having a referendum. She says the feedback they got from a recent survey has
already given them a glimpse of what district voters want and don’t want. She says one of the other things
they found is that district residents are pleased with how much more information the school district has
shared with them over the past four years Gubin has served as superintendent. The Facilities Advisory
Committee will hold another meeting about the referendum at the Rock River Intermediate School next
Monday at 6 p.m.

COURTESY OF MORAINE PARK TECHNICAL COLLEGE
North Fond du Lac took first place in the “Other” Division with a throw of 85 feet. Pictured here are team members Christian Arthers (left) and Dylan Gromacki watching one of their catapult’s
attempts. Also on the team were Tyler Goedderz and Josh Thielke.
STUDENTS CHALLENGED TO
“THROW THE DISTANCE”
FOR USA TODAY NETWORK-WISCONSIN
Moraine Park Technical
College recently challenged
area teens to “throw the distance.”
High school students
were invited to build a device weighing 30 pounds or
less that would hurl or throw
a rubber ball. Whatever contraption gets the ball the furthest is declared the winner.
Four high schools entered teams this year: Mayville, North Fond du Lac,
Elkhart Lake, and GPS Education Partners, a charter
school in Jackson.
The college’s annual Distance Challenge is a great
way for students to learn collaboration, hone their critical-thinking skills and have
fun, said Tom Roehl, process
engineering technology instructor at Moraine Park.
“The competition is held
as an opportunity for high
school students to design,
build and test a device under
the constraints of weight,
time and budget in a fun and
low-pressure environment,”
Roehl said. “Students also
win prizes donated by local
manufacturers and are exposed to career opportunities in manufacturing and
engineering.”
This year there were six
total entrants, four in the
slingshot division and two in
the other division, both being catapults. The Distance
Challenge was held at
MPTC’s Fond du Lac campus.
Elkhart Lake – Glenbeulah’s entry, aptly named
sling-shot, took first place in
the slingshot division with a
throw of 260 feet. Owen Kalbacken designed and built
the contraption.
Mayville’s Wiley Coyote 2
took second place with a
throw of 192 feet. Team
members were Andrew
Nothem and Weston Wiese.
Meanwhile Mayville’s Déjà
Vu took third with a throw of
146 feet and GPS’s Green
Machine took fourth with a
throw of 100 feet. Team
members for Mayville’s
third-place team were Justin Schlender and Nikolas
Giese, while GPS’s team consisted of Ethan Moldenhauer, Collin Kenehan, Austin Johnson and Trevor
Heck.
North Fond du Lac’s One
Shot took first place in the
other division with a throw
of 85 feet. Team members
were Christian Arthurs, Tyler Guedderz, Dylan Gromacki and Josh Thielke.
Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah’s Claw took second place
with a throw of 76 feet. Team
members were Kalbacken
and Jon Roll.
“Each year that we have
held this competition, I’ve
been impressed with the
creativity shown by the students,” Roehl said. “This is
an excellent project for high
school students because it
requires design, manufacturing and troubleshooting,
all of which are skills that
employers look for in skilled
labor fields.”
John Ostermann, Elkhart
Lake-Glenbeulah
High
School Technology Education, said the project provides a great learning tool.
“It forces students to
push themselves beyond
what they know and see in
class. They have unknown
opponents and a set of rules
set by the event rather than a
teacher,” Ostermann said.
“While testing at school,
students often ask ‘Do you
think this is good enough?’
They are typically looking
for approval and someone to
say ‘Good job, it’s done.’ In
this case, I simply ask them
if they think the other team’s
device is “good enough” yet,
or do you think they are still
pushing their design to do
better,” he added.
The event is hosted by
Moraine Park’s Process Engineering Technology and
Mechanical Design programs.

Moraine Park Technical College holds fifth annual Distance Challenge
Moraine Park Technical College
recently held its fifth annual Distance
Challenge at the College’s Fond du Lac
campus.
The event is hosted by Moraine Park’s
Process Engineering Technology and
Mechanical Design programs. High
school students build a device of 30
pounds or less to hurl or throw a rubber ball, with whatever contraptions
getting the furthest “throws” declared
the winner.
Four high schools entered teams this
year: Mayville; North Fond du Lac;
Elkhart Lake; and GPS Education Partners, a charter school in Jackson.
Tom Roehl, process engineering technology instructor at Moraine Park, said
the event is a great way for students to
learn collaboration, hone their criticalthinking skills and have fun.
“The competition is held as an opportunity for high school students to
design, build and test a device under the
constraints of weight, time and budget
in a fun and low-pressure environment,”
Roehl said. “Students also win prizes
donated by local manufacturers and
are exposed to career opportunities in
manufacturing and engineering while at
Moraine Park.”
This year there were six total entrants,
four in the “Slingshot” division and
two in the “Other” division, both being
catapults.
Elkhart Lake–Glenbeulah’s entry
named Sling-Shot took first place in
the “Slingshot” Division with a throw
of 260 feet. Owen Kalbacken designed
and built Sling-Shot.
Mayville’s Wiley Coyote 2 took second place with a throw of 192 feet. Team
members were Andrew Nothem and
Weston Wiese. Meanwhile Mayville’s
Déjà Vu took third with a throw of 146
feet and GPS’s Green Machine took
fourth with a throw of 100 feet. Team
members for Mayville’s third-place
team were Justin Schlender and Nikolas
Giese, while GPS’s team consisted of
Ethan Moldenhauer, Collin Kenehan,
Austin Johnson and Trevor Heck.
North Fond du Lac’s One Shot took
first place in the “Other” Division with
a throw of 85 feet. Team members were
Christian Arthurs, Tyler Guedderz,
Dylan Gromacki and Josh Thielke.
Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah’s Claw took
second place with a throw of 76 feet.
Team members were Kalbacken and
Jon Roll.
“Each year that we have held this competition, I’ve been impressed with the
creativity shown by the students,” Roehl
said. “This is an excellent project for
high school students because it requires
design, manufacturing and troubleshooting, all of which are skills that employers
look for in skilled labor fields.”
In addition to the competition, the students also had opportunities to tour the
college and talk with local employers.
John Ostermann, Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah High School Technology Education, felt Moraine Park’s Distance Challenge provides a great learning tool.
“Events like [this] are a great way for
students to learn beyond the classroom.
It forces students to push themselves
beyond what they know and see in
class. They have unknown opponents
and a set of rules set by the event rather
than a teacher,” Ostermann said. “While
testing at school, students often ask ‘Do
you think this is good enough?’ They
are typically looking for approval and
someone to say ‘Good job, it’s done.’
In this case, I simply ask them if they
think the other team’s device is “good
enough” yet, or do you think they are
still pushing their design to do better?”
he added.

ran 52 lemonade stands
throughout the Fond du
Lac area and raised almost $20,000 as part of an
annual Lemonade Day
event.
Each student received
a Lemonade Day backpack that included educational lessons about how to
market and run a business. Then on May 7 stu-
dents opened and operated their Lemonade business. Through the live experience, they were able
to understand the impact
of the decisions they made
along the way in developing their business plan and
they earned real money.
They used 100 percent
of their profit to spend,
save and share based on
their business goals.
“Lemonade Day in
Fond du Lac motivated a
new generation to understand and appreciate the
hard work and dedication
it takes to operate a busi-
ness,” said Melissa Worthington, vice president of
the Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce.
Over 170 kids from
schools, after-school programs, youth organizations, mentoring programs and more participated in the event.
Awards include: Best
Tasting Lemonade — Tooti
Fruity; Best Overall Stand
— Lemonade Lovers; Best
Business — Dr. Squeezer’s
Lemon-Aid, for the business plan that they developed; Greatest Give Back
— Tropical Lemonade,
who donated 100 percent
of their profits (over $400,
to the MACC Fund); Most
Unique Addition — Jet’s
Sweet Treats, for giving a
piece of Jet’s pizza to every customer who purchased lemonade.
Best Slogan — BNJ’s
Lemonade, who sang their
slogan about a “drink like

Downtown’s Fifth Street
will come alive with color and
imagination next weekend
when more than a dozen chalk
artists plan to work their magic
there.
The artists — coming from
throughout the Midwest — will
each be creating an original
work of chalk art on a 4-by-4foot Masonite panel as they
compete in the Great Lakes
Chalk Art Competition.
The competition is a new
event, held in conjunction
with the Monument Square
Art Festival, which will take
place in Monument Square
Saturday and Sunday, June
11 and 12. Participating chalk
artists will work on their pieces
throughout the day Saturday,
allowing the public to view
their processes, ask questions
and cast votes for their favorite
work. And the finished pieces
will be displayed along Fifth
Street, between Wisconsin
and Main streets, on Sunday,
with an awards ceremony
happening that afternoon.
Animation throwdown
For three of the chalk
artists — all animators by
profession — the competition
might also involve a bit of
a friendly “cartoon war,”

NFDL Woman Pleads NGI To Embezzlement Charges
The 46-year-old North Fond du Lac woman suspected of taking more than $142,000 from the Lomira
business she worked for has changed her plea. Tessa Hilt recently entered not guilty by reason of mental
disease or defect pleas to the charges she’s facing in Dodge County court. She had previously pled not
guilty to five felony theft charges. The thefts allegedly occurred while she was an office manager for Waas
Boring and Cable. According to the criminal complaint she used the money to pay her personal expenses
including her mortgage.
Construction Worker Hurt On New Roland Kampo Bridge
Winnebago County Sheriff’s officials say a 49-year-old Black Creek man was injured while working on the
Roland Kampo Bridge Monday morning. Officials didn’t say how the man was injured, but he suffered
injuries to an arm and his chest. An ambulance took him to ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Neenah.
Hospital officials say he was in serious condition. The accident was reported shortly after 9:30 a.m. Clyman Man Suspected Of Hiding A Corpse
A preliminary hearing will be held Thursday in Dodge County court for a 29-year-old man Clyman man
suspected of taking the body of a dead heroin victim to a Watertown Hospital hours after her death.
According to the criminal complaint Gabriel Joseph Brandl was in the Clyman Park with the 41-year-old
woman on Memorial Day when they bought heroin from a dealer. He told investigators she passed out, but
he didn’t realize she was dead until he was driving her around. He brought her to Watertown Regional
Medical Center 10 hours after her death. Brandl is being held in the Dodge County Jail on a $5,000 cash
bond.

Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says the community has made progress on drug problems
in the 3 ½ years he’s been in office. Doing something about the drug problem was one of the things he
campaigned on. Toney says in addition to the law enforcement and prosecution angle there have been
opioid and heroin forums and an Opiooid Coalition is now merging with Drug Free Communities. He says
those efforts raise community awareness. He says hopefully family and friends recognize someone’s
problem before they commit a serious crime or overdose. He says in the last two years a drug court was
created, which gives low level offenders the chance to get treatment and avoid jail. He says people can help
and it doesn’t always mean a large commitment of time. He says for example you could pass out wristbands
at the Fair to keep underage drinking in check. Toney recently participated in an opioid educational effort in
Ripon.

Mayville, Dodge County Pionier
Mayville Represented At FIRST Robotics World Championship
Mayville High School Student On Team
by Ryan Spoehr
In competition, many
times combatants will
strive to be the best in their
activity at a high level,
whether that is on a state
or national level. However,
one person from Mayville
recently had the chance to
have her team be one of
the best in the world.
Nicole Wenzel, a senior
at Mayville High School,
recently traveled to St.
Louis, MO to compete at
the FIRST Robotics World
Championship at the Edward Jones Dome, the former home of the NFL’s St.
Louis Rams.
Wenzel, who was a senior at Mayville High School
this year, is a part of the
Fondy Fire Robotics team
comprised of students
from high schools from
throughout eastern Wisconsin. In addition to
Mayville, there are also
participants from Fond du
Lac, New Holstein, Kiel
and Rosendale.
This year at the FIRST
Robotics World Champisonships, the team was a
semifinalist in its division.
“We try to go to the world
championship (as much as
possible). Optimistically,
we would go every year. In
our 10 years of existence,
we’ve only gone five times
now. We’ve done very well
at the world championships,” said Fondy Fire
lead
mentor
Mark
Holschuh, who is also an
engineer at John Deere.
Wenzel was one of the
students who attended the
event in St. Louis.
“It was a very unique experience. I don’t think I’d
ever go to anything quite
like that ever again. Since
they were world championships, there were teams
from all over. It was very interesting to network with
various kids and adults
from Australia, China and
Ireland,” Wenzel said. “I
met some kids from California who are involved in
the field that I want to get a
degree in.”
Wenzel also met some
students who are planning
to go to college at the
same place she is planning
to go to the University of
Minnesota-Twin Cities.
There are college recruiters and corporate
sponsors at each championship yearly who meet
with students who participate.
“They’re trying to get
their name out there so the
students remember them
when they graduate,”
Holschuh said.
Participants meet for
practice and mentoring in
engineering at Moraine
Park Technical College’s
Fond du Lac campus.
Fondy Fire meets Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday each week during their build season and
all day on Saturday. Some
students will be there four
days a week, but others
may only attend on Saturdays. However, students
are not necessarily ex-
pected to be at Moraine
Park every day Fondy Fire
meets.
“The students don’t
come every day. Their
homework has to come
first, and they have other
things going on like driver’s
ed
and
confirmation
classes. Homework is a
big thing; they have to
keep their grades up,”
Holschuh said. “I don’t expect them to come every
day we meet, but the more
they come the more they
are going to get out of the
program.”
“I know the students love
doing this and they come
as often as they can,”
Holschuh added. “I understand they have other
things going on in their
lives and other activities,
but hopefully they get a lot
out of the program. They
get a lot of practical handson experience.”
Some students participate in the program for the
stepping stone to engineering in college and/or a
career while others participate for an extracurricular.
“Students are definitely
looking at the STEM value
in it. They get to apply a lot
of what they learn in
school. We don’t really
teach them that much;
that’s the teachers’ job.
We’re
applying
what
they’ve learned. Every now
and then, you see the students have these little
epiphanies where, ‘Oh my
gosh. That’s what the
teacher covered in class.’
A lot of times when students get to college, they
realilze, ‘Yes. We did that
on our robot team.’ I hear
that a lot from a lot of the
students who have graduated through the program
in school and who are
working in the real world,”
Holschuh said.
Wenzel has always been
interested in science and
she thought Fondy Fire
would be a good outlet to
explore her interest.

“I wanted more opportunities not available through
the high school, which now
they are getting more curriculum which is good, but
that’s why I got involved –
to have more opportunities
with CAD and application
of that,” Wenzel said.
Joe Ognenoff, also of
Mayville, has been a part
of Fondy Fire since last
summer. It was the team’s
offseason, so he had the
chance to start out by
working with old robots
that the team still had
around.
Ognenoff also has a
strong interest in technology that he gets to apply
while
participating
in
Fondy Fire.
“I really like the robotic
part. I like to design. I
made a small video game
on a program called
Scratch. I just basically like
all of it,” Ognenoff said.
As for the participation in
the team itself, Holschuh
said it provides a base for
many real-world skills from
actualy engineering to just
basic communication that
is needed throughout most
occupations.
“I keep telling the kids
that the reason why you
take four years of English
in high school is because
communication is the single-most important thing
you’re going to have to do
in the real world – to be
able to communicate to
your supervisor and to
your co-workers your ideas
and things like that,”
Holschuh said. “It’s incredibly important. That’s why
you get hired. To make
sure that you are useful to
your employer, you have to
be able to communicate.”
“They have to be able to
talk to each other, talk to
their mentors and talk to
judges, quite frankly,”
Holschuh added. “Any one
of the judges can walk up
to any one of the students
and start asking them
questions. I see a great improvement in their communication skills the more
they participate on the
team,” Holschuh said.
Involvement in the group
may also give students a
foundation in the engineering field.
“It’s a different set of
skills, too. Some people
come in for programming,
which I know nothing
about. Other people want
to do the electricity or the
machining,” Wenzel said.
Holschuh said part of the
experience
revolves
around
team-building
skills, and many have mutual interests in engineering and education through
STEM, which is an
acronym that stands for
science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“It’s kind of neat. There’s
a great interaction within
our group because the students all come together
and get along with each
other. They don’t see it as
a competition amongst
themselves. They really
have a unique relationship,” Holschuh said.
“They are all interested in
STEM and engineering
and Fondy Fire gives them
an opportunity to actually
do this in a safe environment. But, it’s very hands
on. We have to make parts
for our robots. There’s a lot
of metal fabrication and assembly. There’s a lot of
programming for the robots. There’s a lot of electrical; a lot of wiring. In
addition to all of that, the
students develop communication skills.”
With participating in
Fondy Fire, students are
given the task of building a
robot in six weeks during
the competition season.
“We’re giving the students a real world engineering project to do,
which is to build a big robot
in six weeks. It is very difficult. We meet as often as
we can at Moraine Park,”
Holschuh said.
Working in Fondy Fire
also gives the students a
chance to earn some help
with their education along
the way.
“There’s a lot of scholar-

ship money available to
students who participate in
FIRST Robotics. Nicole is
one of the students who
has applied for some of the
grants. Hopefully she
hears
back
soon,”
Holschuh said.
Holschuh said it is rewarding to see growth in
the students as the work
with Fondy Fire Robotics
more.
“A lot of the students
come in to us and they are
not familiar with how to use
hand tools or any kind of
shop equipment. Those
are things that they will
learn as being a part of our
team,” Holschuh said.
Wenzel has done assembly, machined things,
some CAD and has done
some work on awards.
She has tried to participate
as much as possible, but
she said it can be tough.
“Our main build season
is also during show choir,
which we are both very active in, so I tried to go once
a week at least. Last summer, I went more and went
to offseason competitions,”
Wenzel said.
During the offseason in
the summer, the team generally meets once per
week. The team also does
several demonstrations of
their robot, including at
Walleye Weekend in Fond
du Lac and Summerfest.
The team also does
demonstrations at Fondu
Fest in Fond du Lac in the
fall.
“The students put a lot of
effort into the robot, so we
try to give them lots of opportunties to work on the
robot and actually play with
it and have other students
drive the robot,” Holschuh
said.
Holschuh said a big part
of Fondy Fire Robotics is
preparing students for life
after high school.
“There’s so many applications coming out for robots – the Roomba
vacuum cleaner, at St.
Agnes Hospital they have
a da Vinci robot for operations and they have a robotic line for doing their
blood line analysis. John
Deere, of course, uses a
lot of robots in our plants.
It’s becoming more and
more prevalent in our
world that you see them,”
Holschuh said. “The more
familiar the students become with this technology,
the more opportunities that
they probably will get them
somewhere down the
road. It really applies to almost
all
occupations
nowadays.”

LHS Crowned Junkyard Challenge
Champions At Moraine Park
Sixteen students from
Fond du Lac, Lomira,
Mayville and Slinger High
Schools recently came to
the college’s Fond du Lac
campus for the Junkyard
Challenge event, where
they had just three hours
to turn random scraps of
metal and structural material into elaborate welded
creations.
The students, who competed in teams, were challenged
to
create
sculptures within the
theme of agriculture, farming or ranching.
The teams were supervised by Moraine Park
Welding Instructor Jeff
Beach, who said the students did a remarkable job
creating tractors and skid
loaders from what had
hours earlier literally been
heaps of miscellaneous
junk.
“Students arrived early
in the morning to look over
boxes and bins of oddball
parts and things that were
useful in another life. They
have little time to put together a plan and choose
the parts needed to put
their plan into action,”
Beach said, also praising
the teamwork, skill and effort showcased to make it
all come together.
Moraine Park welding
program students are on
hand to assist with welding
and fabrication equipment
issues and to ensure the
safety of the high school
students. The finished
projects were then judged
on originality, quality, complexity, team participation
and safety.
“The judging criteria is
based on skills critical to
success in the workplace,
which is why they are emphasized in this competition,” Beach said.

sculpture that earned a
perfect score. Students on
this first-place team were
Allan Klink, Aidan Zielicke,
Jacob Adelmeyer and Joe
Adelmeyer. Instructor was
Jon Marx.
Marx said he was
pleased not only with the
result of his team’s efforts
but, more importantly, the
learning that all the students got to experience
through the event.
“The Junkyard Challenge, specifically, is great,
because it makes kids
think outside the box. They
really have to plan and utilize their thinking skills as
a team,” he said.
Students from Slinger
High School were this
year’s runner up followed
by Fond du Lac and
Mayville. Judges this year
were Shawn Justman from
Metalcraft of Mayville,
along with Tom Thiel and
Mitch Schroeder from
Amerequip.
