Fritsch, Stevens, Schinners prevail in School Board race; Didier, Rychtik win in town

    Port Washington-Saukville School District residents went with the familiar Tuesday, re-electing the incumbents on the School Board.

    Aaron Paulin lost his bid to join the board, garnering only 1,613 votes while incumbent Brenda Fritsch received 2,085 votes, Brian Stevens, 1,967, and Michelle Schinners, 1,790. They represent the City of Port Washington on the board.

    Fritsch and Shinners were elected to their first terms on the board in 2012. Stevens was appointed in February 2014 to fill a vacancy left by the resignation of Jim Olsen.

    Carey Gremminger, who received 2,479 votes, will again represent the Village of Saukville and Paul Krechel received 2,396 votes to again represent the towns of Grafton and Port Washington.

    Both were unopposed.

    The trend of returning incumbents to office continued in the Town of Port Washington, where voters re-elected town supervisors Mike Didier and Jim Rychtik.

    Didier and Rychtik, who received 282 and 244 votes, respectively, easily outdrew challengers Greg Welton and T. Andrew Anewenter, who received 135 and 85 votes.

    Rounding out the Town Board will be Chairman Jim Melichar, who received 371 votes, and Treasurer Mary Sampont, who got 366.

    This was the first election cycle in which the town clerk’s position was not on the ballot. Town voters decided last year to make the position an appointed one.

    In the City of Port Washington, a full slate of incumbents was re-elected Tuesday. They include Mayor Tom Mlada, 2,128 votes; 1st District Ald. Mike Ehrlich, 357; 3rd District Ald. Bill Driscoll, 256; 5th District Ald. Kevin Rudser, 345; and 7th District Ald. Dan Becker, 333.

    Mid Moraine Municipal Judge Steve Cain was re-elected to his post with Ozaukee County voters casting 10,275 votes for him. Circuit Court Judges Paul Malloy and Sandy Williams were also re-elected with 14,016 votes and 13,960 votes, respectively.

    Ozaukee County voters, unlike their counterparts throughout the state, chose James Daley over incumbent Supreme Court Justice Ann Bradley, 11,103 to 7,820, but they voted with the majority on a statewide referendum calling for the Justice in Chief to be selected by the State Supreme Court, approving the measure 13,031 to 6,447.


 

New faces earn village, school board positions

There will be two new trustees in the Village of Belgium and three School Board members in the Cedar Grove-Belgium School District.

Incumbent Village of Belgium Trustee Vickie Boehnlein was the only declared candidate for three seats.

Boehnlein received 223 votes and 68 write-in votes were cast.

It was unclear what candidates received the most write-in votes.

Trustees Jason Acevedo and John Hise did not seek re-election.

Rich Howells ran unopposed for Village President and received 239 votes.

In the Cedar Grove-Belgium School District, Laura Schieffer received 688 votes and 255 write-in votes were cast.

As of Wednesday morning, it was unknown who received the write-in votes,

Administrative Assistant Sue Voskuil said.

School Board members Jim

Lautenschlaeger, Todd Bucher and Jeff Thiel did not seek re-election.

In the Town of Belgium, incumbent Chairman Tom Winker, Suprs. Jim Blick and Bill Janeshek and Clerk Ginger

Murphy ran unopposed for their seats.

Winker received 173 votes, Blick earned 148 and Janeshek had 145. Murphy earned 195 votes.

The town elected a new treasurer, Dayle Parks, who ran unopposed for Karen Wolfe’s seat.


Dickmann, Hamm earn new terms

The story lines were different but the results were the same in Tuesday’s spring elections in the village and town of Saukville.

Former municipal engineer Roy Wilhelm failed in his two-prong bid to gain election in the Village of Saukville.

Incumbent Village President Barb Dickmann withstood a challenge from Wilhelm, winning a seventh term in office by a vote of 249 to 117.

Wilhelm also ran for village trustee, but the three seats on the ballot were retained by incumbents.

Gaining re-election were trustees Mike Krocka with 243 votes, Dave Maglio with 216 and Joe Caban with 195.

Wilhelm garnered 159 votes for trustee.

Although he did not leave his position with the village voluntarily, Wilhelm said he had no hidden agenda that was driving his bids for village office.

In the Town of Saukville, Town Chairman Don Hamm won a full term in office after being appointed to the position last year following the resignation of Barb Jobs.

Hamm was challenged by lifelong resident Marvin Hoffmann, who served as town chairman from 1975 to 1995.

Hamm won the tightly contested showdown with 223 votes, compared to Hoffmann’s 219 votes.

Incumbent town supervisors Curt Rutkowski and Michael Denzien were unopposed in the election, garnering 297 and 253 votes, respectively.

Town Treasurer Gloria Arredondo was unchallenged and received 331 votes.


Krueger tops field in village trustees race

There will be a new face on the Grafton Village Board this spring.

Challenger Tom Krueger and incumbents Dave Antoine and Dean Proefrock emerged as the top vote getters in a five-person race for three trustee seats in Tuesday’s general election.

Krueger led the field with 1,005 votes, followed by Antoine with 986 and Proefrock with 838.

Losing their bids for election were longtime incumbent Jim Grant (752) and challenger Eric Lusty (478).

Krueger, 745 Over- land Tr., is a former utility employee who oversaw the village’s water and wastewater plant operations for 27 years. He was making his first try for elected office.

Village President Jim Brunnquell was unopposed in a re-election bid. He received 1,332 votes.

All board members serve two-year terms.

In the Town of Grafton, incumbent supervisors Karron Stockwell and Steve Schaefer were re-elected in a four-person race.

Stockwell received 578 votes, and Schaefer got 421. Trailing the field were  challengers Doug Johnson and Aaron Schmanski with 342 and 317 votes, respectively.

Town Chairman Lester Bartel was unopposed in a re-election bid. He received 741 votes.

Town Board members serve two-year terms.

Two candidates for Grafton School Board were unopposed in their bids for three-year terms.

Incumbent Terry Ziegler received 1,794 votes, and Julia McNally got 1,532.

McNally, 568 Starboard Ct., was making her first try for a board seat.


 

Write-in positions remain unresolved

The voting is complete, but Fredonia area officials were still uncertain Wednesday morning about the outcome of two local races with no declared candidates.

Village of Fredonia officials had not yet heard from Fritz Buchholtz, who was the top write-in candidate for one of three village trustee posts on Tuesday’s ballot.

Buchholtz, who chose not to seek re-election, received three votes.

If he declines the position, the vacancy will be filled by the Village Board.

Don Dohrwardt was elected village president, with 215 votes. He succeeds Chuck Lapicola, who did not seek re-election.

Incumbent trustee John Long won re-election with 200 votes, and newcomer Neil Wagner was elected with 209 votes.

As of Wednesday morning, write-in candidates Peter Lenz and Tom Miller appeared to be tied for the Village of Fredonia seat on the Northern Ozaukee School Board.

Incumbents Tim Burmesch and Steve Burmesch were unopposed in their bids for new terms on the board.Daily-Press

PW-S district’s $49.4 million improvement plan on minds of incumbents, challenger in Tuesday election

    Three Port Washington-Saukville School Board incumbents face a challenger who is no stranger to education in the Tuesday, April 7, election — and it should come as no surprise that the district’s $49.4 million referendum, also on next week’s ballot, is on their minds.

    Aaron Paulin, a social studies teacher at West Bend West High School, is challenging incumbents Brenda Fritsch and Michelle Shinners, who were elected to their first term in 2012, and Brian Stevens, who was appointed to the board in February 2014 to fill a vacancy left by the resignation of Jim Olson.

    The top three vote-getters will represent the City of Port Washington on the nine-member board.

    If there’s one thing all the candidates agree on, it’s that the district needs to invest $45.6 million in its high school, which dates to 1931, and $3.8 million in Dunwiddie Elementary School, where an addition would be built to alleviate overcrowding.

    Noting that the current school improvement plan is a pared version of an initial proposal to spend between $86 million and $97 million on facilities, Stevens said, “That initial amount probably struck people pretty hard. Now we’ve come up with something that meets the needs of today’s students and our future students.”

    The improvements, he said, will benefit generations of students.

    “This is a reasonable amount of money to invest in the long-term future of our schools,” said Stevens, whose children attend Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Port Washington High School.

    Shinners said the board’s initial plan to spend at least $86 million on schools, which was modified after a majority of residents who responded to a district survey indicated that was too much money, was not unreasonable. The projects called for in the current plan are the least that should be done to improve schools, she said.

    “When I look at our original proposal, none of it was over the top or frivolous. There was nothing crazy about it,” Shinners, whose children attend the middle and high school, said. “It was what we needed.

    “I’m doing this for future generations, and I’m finding it disheartening that people don’t have the same vision to pay it forward.”

    The candidates agreed that the space crunch at elementary schools and the age and antiquated design of the high school make a convincing case in support of the referendum.

    “When I took a tour of the high school, I was devastated,” Shinners said. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s where I send my son.’

    “There are a lot of things that should have been dealt with a long time ago but weren’t.”

    Paulin said one of the primary reasons he and his family moved from Belgium to Port Washington in August was because of the Port-Saukville school system, but it has become apparent to him that the district facilities are in need of improvements.

    “This plan is absolutely affordable,” said Paulin, whose only school-age child attends Dunwiddie Elementary School. “It comes down to what we value. I sense there’s a lot of pride in Port, and I want to see that pride reflected in our schools.

    “The schools are the centerpiece of our community. They shouldn’t be armpits.”

    Fritsch, who has children at Lincoln Elementary School, the middle school and high school, said not only are improvements needed, but now is a critical time to make them.

    “I know you sometimes have to swallow hard when you look at the dollar amount, but now is the time to be doing something about our facilities,” she said. “I know some people ask why now if we’re getting by, but the question is why not now.”

    Low interest rates and the fact the district does not have referendum debt make the timing right, Fritsch said, but so too does what’s happening around the schools.

    “We’re at a turning point in Port Washington,” she said. “We have people who are making investments in our city, and the school district couples with economic development.

    “If we (the city) continue to grow — and I certainly hope we do to provide new opportunities and new jobs — we can’t be so far behind in our schools that we end up rushing to catch up.”

    In addition to either overseeing a four-year construction project if the referendum passes or revising the school improvement plan if it fails, the school board will soon be faced with what could be the most challenging budget in a decade because of Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed state budget.      

     Fritsch said the district has made great strides in curriculum development and elective course offerings, and it must protect student programs from budget cuts.

    “We have to maintain our options for students and continue to support our staff,” she said. “I hate to see anything for our students lost.”

    Stevens agreed that maintaining student programs is a priority and noted that the district has done a good job phasing out unpopular or antiquated high school elective classes and replacing them with ones that are not only more popular but better prepare students for life after high school.

    He said the district should continue its emphasis on technology education and its partnerships with area industries to ensure Port High graduates have the qualifications employers expect.

    Paulin said the district’s priority should be its teachers.

    “If you want to do what’s best for students, you have to do what’s best for teachers,” he said. “What parent, administrator or school board member wouldn’t think that’s appropriate?”

    Shinners said the priority should be preserving programs, even if it means making tough choices when it come to class sizes.

    “The key is not making any radical moves,” she said.

    Paulin said he would bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the board. One of those ideas, he said, is to eliminate or at least reduce the number of early-release days during the school year. He noted that in March, a month in which students have three full days of vacation, there were three early-release days.

    “As a teacher, I believe that many half-days aren’t good for students, parents or teachers,” he said. “They’re just not useful for anybody.”

    But the other candidates said while early release days may complicate the schedules of parents, they provide valuable time for teachers to plan, collaborate and fulfill educator effectiveness requirements.

    “As a parent, it does seem like there are a lot of half days, but as a board member, I’ve learned how important they are in terms of a direct benefit for teachers,” Stevens said.

    School board members running unopposed are Carey Gremminger, who represents the Village of Saukville, and Paul Krechel, who was appointed to the board in July to represent the towns of Grafton and Saukville after longtime board member Jim Eden resigned.

    Although board members represent specific communities within the district, they are elected at large, which means all voters can vote for all candidates.

Incumbents Didier and Rychtik face challenges from Welton, Anewenter in supervisory election

    Port Washington Town Chairman Jim Melichar and Treasurer Mary Sampont are unopposed on Tuesday’s ballot, but town voters will have a choice of four candidates to fill the two supervisory seats.

    Incumbents Mike Didier and Jim Rychtik are being challenged by Greg Welton, a builder and member of the Board of Appeals, and T. Andrew Anewenter — better known as Terry — a farm owner and former Plan Commission member.

    Didier, Rychtik and Welton said they are pleased with the way things are running in the town, while Anewenter said he is running to give voters a choice.

    Unlike the other candidates, Anewenter said, he was not born and raised in the town but grew up in urban areas that give him a different perspective.

    Welton said his experience as a builder who developed Lange Estates would be invaluable as the town grows.

    “The town is starting to grow, and I’d like to keep it going in the right direction,” he said. “I’d also like to see the town get a little more of a business base.”

    Rychtik said the current board’s done a good job, and that’s evidenced by the fact taxes have been lowered and services improved.

    For example, he said, the town was the first in the county to privatize its roadwork, especially snowplowing, instead of hiring Ozaukee County.

    “During a snowstorm, I used to get calls all the time from people saying, ‘I can’t get to work. My road’s not plowed,’” Rychtik said. “I don’t get those anymore.”

    The town’s roads are generally in good shape, he said, noting Highland Road is being reconstructed this year and Green Bay Road and Northwoods Road will be addressed in coming years.

    Didier and Welton concurred, while Anewenter said more needs to be done to maintain roads.

    “I think it’s been neglected,” Anewenter said.     

    He also said the town should seek more bids for projects and be flexible enough to alter projects if bidders have alternate ideas.

    Some residents have questioned the board’s responsiveness to residents in light of continuing complaints of excessive noise from the Briggs & Stratton proving grounds on Highway LL that neighbors say disturbs them day and night.

    Anewenter questioned how seriously the board has taken the complaints, saying the town has to find a middle ground that will allow the company to continue operations while meeting the needs of residents.

    “Perhaps the town hasn’t been vigorous enough in negotiations,” he said. “There hasn’t been a lot of investigation.”

    But both Didier and Rychtik said they have been to the property many times and found the company conforms to town ordinances.

    “I hear what the people are saying,” Rychtik said. “The sheriff’s department has been there numerous times investigating the noise and haven’t found any violations.

    “I’d like to see them do something with a privacy fence that would block the noise, and that’s something the town chairman is working on. But I can’t in good faith spend taxpayer dollars fighting a battle on something I think we’re going to lose.”

    Company officials recently said they are working on a buffer to reduce the noise, Didier said.

    He’s said he’s been to the property when residents have complained several times and found the noise readings were less than the decibel level permitted by town ordinances.

    Welton noted that, just because residents don’t get the results they seek, it doesn’t mean the board isn’t responsive.

    “When I’ve seen people come in, they (the board) have heard their issues and started research or investigation,” he said. “It doesn’t always end the way the person may want. You have to look at both sides and see what’s best for everyone.”

    Growth is always an issue in the town, and Welton said he would like to help guide it, especially along the I-43 interchange.

    “Is it going to become stores or businesses, and how do we mesh residential development with it?” he asked.

    The area between Port and Saukville is becoming more dense, Welton said, and will fill in during the next decade or so, as are the lakefront properties.

    “The key is to keep rural areas rural,” he said.

    Welton said he would also like to see the town create pedestrian paths to connect isolated subdivisions along highways 33 and LL to each other as well as areas such as Norport Drive to the rest of the township.

    Both Didier and Rychtik said the I-43 interchange is important, but growth there isn’t likely to occur until water service is brought to the area.

    That won’t happen anytime soon, they predicted, because it is very expensive.

    Rychtik said the proposed Cedar Vineyard subdivision in the City of Port could put additional pressure on the south side of the town, which will likely transition from rural uses.

    But Didier predicted that with the Cedar Vineyard development, the town stands to lose the homes it has in the area to annexation.

Port High junior takes aim at $25,000 goal for Justice Center soccer pavilion

Soccer fans who have been to matches at the Ozaukee Justice Center fields in Port Washington over the years would probably agree that a shelter is a much-needed upgrade.

If Eagle Scout candidate Ian Tyree has his way, that dream will soon become a reality.


Tyree, a junior at Port Washington High School, has been trying to raise $25,000 to build the pavilion for about two years as part of his Eagle project.


“I actually started out by wanting to build a storage shed in the community garden,” he said.


“Someone else took that one, so my sister, who plays for the club, had always talked about them needing this.


“The (Port Washington Soccer Club) president (Lynn Fyhrlund) is a good friend of ours.”


Tyree, a member of Boy Scout Troop 855, needs to raise another $10,000 before his 18th birthday Nov. 15 to meet his goal.


“The pavilion will happen, it’s just a matter of whether or not I get my Eagle out of it,” he said.


He is hoping to complete fundraising later this spring with construction to start in the summer.


Plans for the pavilion call for a 30-by-50-foot complex that would include a concessions stand and picnic table seating.


It would be built in the middle of the soccer field complex.


Currently, tents are set up to sell concessions during matches and there is no place for those watching and playing to go if severe weather strikes.


“The pavilion will benefit the club in many ways, particularly if there is an emergency weather situation,” Erica Roller, Port Soccer Club co-vice president said.


“It also represents a permanent structure at the fields, which solidifies the club’s commitment to the community and our soccer families that the club will continue to offer affordable soccer now and for years to come.”


The soccer club leases the fields from Ozaukee County. The lease runs through 2040, Fyhrlund said.


To support Tyree’s Eagle project, a fundraiser is planned for Friday, April 10, at Memories Ballroom in the Town of Port.


A fish fry and broasted chicken dinner will be served at 6 p.m., followed by a silent auction and entertainment by Comedy Sportz for $40.


Auction items up for bid include a $300 gift card to Stefans Soccer, Milwaukee Admirals hockey tickets and gift certificates to local restaurants.


“We are still accepting donations,” Tyree said, adding he is hoping to sell all 280 tickets for the event which could raise $7,000.


The club is also selling personalized bricks that will be on display at the pavilion.


Tyree also ran a concessions booth during a tournament that “generated a lot of money.”


He said the club has sold apparel and has gotten donations from companies for the shelter.


Roller said the project is important not just for the future of the club, but also for Tyree’s Eagle award.


“We want to see Ian succeed as an Eagle Scout,” she said. “Most of the initial fundraising efforts were done by Ian and his family through letter-writing campaigns and word of mouth.”


Fyhrlund agreed, saying he was “taken aback” by Tyree’s generosity to help build the pavilion.


“What a huge project for this Scout to undertake,” he said.


“It is something he wants to do and something that will make a big impact.


“Once built, Ian will have left his mark on our community, and it will be something he can proud of and will be able to see every time he comes back into the area.”

Grafton resident had blood alcohol level nearly three times legal threshold, coroner says

    The 70-year-old Town of Grafton woman whose body was found in a minivan outside her house last month froze to death because she was intoxicated, according to a coroner’s report released Tuesday.

    Mary Ann Schuerman, who had celebrated her birthday the night before her body was found by her husband, died of hypothermia due to acute ethyl alcohol intoxication, the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office determined.

    Schuerman’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.223%, nearly three times greater than the legal threshold for intoxication, according to the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department.

    The body of Schuerman, a security specialist for US Bank and local artist, was found by her husband Michael in the passenger seat of the family minivan parked outside their house on Riverview Drive at about 2:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, according to the sheriff’s department.

    The night before, Schuerman and her husband went out to celebrate her birthday. They returned home shortly after 10 p.m., Mr. Schuerman said.

    Mr. Schuerman said during an interview earlier this month that he went to an upstairs bedroom “and just crashed.” He said he assumed his wife came into the house.

    “I really don’t know what happened,” he said. “Now it looks like she never left the car, and I don’t know why.”

    When he awoke the next morning, Mr. Schuerman said, he noticed his wife was not in the house but assumed she had already left for work.

    “I texted my wife to see if she fed and let the dog out, but she didn’t respond,” he said. “That happens sometimes when she’s at work, so I didn’t think anything of it.Daily-Press

    “It wasn’t until later that afternoon when I went out to the car that I found her.”

    Mr. Schuerman called the sheriff’s department. Deputies and emergency medical technicians arrived to find Mrs. Schuerman dead.
