Use of dogs in bear season, management of bass among topics to be discussed at WCC session April 11 in Cedarburg

Ozaukee County residents will have the chance to express their views on a variety of natural-resources issues during an annual spring meeting of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress on Monday, April 11.

The 7 p.m. event will be at Webster Transitional School, W75 N624 Wauwatosa Rd., Cedarburg.

Similar Conservation Congress meetings are held throughout the state in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources’ spring hearings.

This year, the Congress is seeking public input on 38 advisory questions. Among the proposals to be discussed are the following:

•  To allow bear hunting with dogs statewide.

•  To allow the use of rifles for deer hunting statewide.

•  To legalize crossbows during the archery season.

•  To change the definition  of a vehicle used to transport weapons.

•  To modify the open-water rule for disabled hunters.

•  To exempt all buildings from the 100-yard firearm discharge prohibition for hunters using public lands.

•  To manage largemouth and smallmouth bass as separate species.

•  Suggestions to enhance fishing opportunities on lakes and rivers. 

“Citizens have the opportunity to weigh  in on natural-resources issues that may affect them,” said David Grisar, chairman of the Conservation Congress’ Ozaukee County delegation.

“The Congress asks these questions to gauge the public’s support, or lack thereof, on any given issue.”

Residents’ input on the advisory questions will be presented to the Natural Resources Board in May. If there is significant support for a proposal, the question could become a DNR rule change proposal.

“Conservation Congress advisory questions generally originate from citizens’ ideas,” said Ed Harvey, Congress chairman.

“If resolutions presented at the county-level meetings are supported, the resolution is advanced to one of the Congress’ study committees and the Congress Executive Council for consideration.”

Each year more than 200 resolutions are introduced at local levels, Harvey said.

“Not all pass, but the ones that do begin their journey to become a rule, policy or legislative change in the subsequent years,” he said.

“It is a true grassroots process that empowers the citizens of this state to shape natural-resources policy.”

Residents who present resolutions must submit two copies typed or neatly printed on 8-1/2-by-11-inch white paper.

In addition to discussing advisory questions, the county meeting is held to elect Conservation Congress delegates. To vote for delegates or serve as one, residents must be 18 years old and provide identification and proof of county residency.

There are two delegate seats up for election in Ozaukee County this year. Delegates serve two or three-year terms and must be willing to volunteer their time and represent local residents on natural-resources issues.

For  more information, call Grisar at 268-1461.

Coaches single out CG-B’s von Heimburg and Ruppel, Ozaukee’s Kesselring

Steady veteran leadership paved the way for the Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ basketball team to have one of its best finishes in recent memory this season.

Not surprisingly, the Rockets’ top two senior players earned high honors in All-Central Lakeshore Conference recognition.

Abi von Heimburg, who led Cedar Grove-Belgium in scoring and rebounding, was a unanimous first-team selection in the coaches’ voting, and Steph Ruppel was named to the second team.

Among other local players, Ozaukee senior Ashley Kesselring also received second-team honors.

Von Heimburg was named to the first team for the second straight season, this time as one of four unanimous selections. She led the Rockets by averaging 13.8 points per CLC game, third best in the league.

A 5-foot-9-inch forward, von Heimburg also averaged a conference-best 7.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals, 2.2 assists and 1.8 blocks. She shot 47% from the field.

“Abi just had an outstanding year. She did everything well for us,” said Cedar Grove-Belgium coach Josh Ketterhagen, whose team finished third in the conference with a 13-5 record and was 17-7 overall.

A four-year varsity player, von Heimburg topped the 1,000-point mark for her career. She showed her versatility by combining strong front-line play with outside shooting ability.

“Abi was a numbers cruncher,” Ketterhagen said. “Whenever we needed a key basket or a rebound, she was usually the one to get it for us.

“She definitely will be missed.”

Ruppel, a 5-9 forward, emerged as a go-to-player for the Rockets after filling supporting roles in her two previous varsity seasons.

She averaged 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds in conference games, shot 73% at the free-throw line and was one of Cedar Grove-Belgium’s top threats from three-point range.

“Steph really stepped up for us this year,” Ketterhagen said. “We knew we would need someone besides Abi to help carry the scoring load, and she did that.”

Kesselring emerged as the backcourt leader on a young Ozaukee team that went 6-12 in the league during a rebuilding season.

A 5-5 point guard, she averaged 9.7 points in CLC play and shot 71% at the free-throw line. She led the Warriors in scoring and assists.

“Ashley had a very strong second half of the season,” Ozaukee coach Lee LeMahieu said. “She shot better from the perimeter and did a good job of getting to the free-throw line.

“We improved during the season, and a big reason for that was Ashley’s play at point guard.”

The other players who were unanimous first-team selections in the coaches’ voting were Alexis Lindstrom of Howards Grove, Maddie Landgraf of Elkhart Lake and Allie Paluchniak of champion Oostburg.

Rounding out the top team were Oostburg’s Allie VanStelle and Sheboygan Lutheran’s Ashley Steele.

Greisch-led Port girls post five top-10 finishes during strong showing at invitational


Strength in running events carried the Port Washington girls’ track and field team to an 11th-place finish in the Large Schools Division at the Oshkosh Invitational on Monday.


Senior Payton Greisch led the Pirates by taking second in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1 minute, 2.72 seconds. She trailed only Ashwaubenon’s Cassie Dax, who won in 1:02.04.

Port scored 21.5 points to finish in the middle of the 20-team standings at the Kolf Sports Center. Kimberly won the meet with 89 points, and Neenah was second with 67.

The Pirates had four other top-10 finishes — a third by Diana Seer in the 3,200 run (12:15.79), fifth by Bianca Benkley in the 1,600 run (5:26.46) and sevenths by Claire Kinzer in the pole vault (8 feet) and 1,600 relay team of Sydney Greisch, Anna Pierringer, Benkley and
Payton Greisch (4:28.38).

Port also got an 11th-place finish from Marly Trier in the shot put (33-1).

“We were really looking at individual efforts rather than the team finish,” Pirates coach Joe Adamak said. “We had some very good performances.

“It was our only opportunity to run on a 200-meter track indoors this season. It was a great to run in a facility like that.”

Pirates take 4th at Wilson Invite 

Led by three winning finishes, Port placed fourth in the annual Chris Wilson Invitational at Milwaukee Lutheran last Saturday.

The Pirates got victories from Trier in the shot put (33-8-3/4), Pierringer in the high jump (5-1) and the 3,200-meter relay team of Benkley, Anna Bartlein, Payton Greisch and Seer (10:37.37).

Port’s other top finishes included a second by Seer in the 800 run (2:37.97); thirds by Sydney Greisch in the high jump (4-8) and the 660 relay of Payton Greisch, Sydney Greisch, Pierringer and Kristen Smith (1:34.46); a fourth by Kristina Rossi in the 800 run (2:42.39); and a
fifth by Abby Kotecki in the 1,600 run (6:19.44).

The Pirates finished with 69 points.

Milwaukee Lutheran won the team title with 121.5 points, and Wauwatosa West was second with 104.5.

“We had some very good performances,” Adamak said. “I didn’t run Bianca or Payton in open events, but we still did pretty well.”

Underscoring the Pirates’ young talent were scoring contributions from four freshmen — Sydney Greisch, Pierringer, Smith and Kotecki.

On Thursday, Port will participate in the North Shore Conference indoor meet at Homestead High School. Competition starts at 4 p.m.
