F-16 flyover Thursday marks Veterans Day

To mark the 11/11/11 Golden Veteran's Day, the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon will be flying over
Plymouth and Kiel on Nov. 10 at approximately 10 a.m. This F-16 flyby will mark the first dedicated
fighter flyover of this type of aircraft in Sheboygan and Manitowoc Counties.
Ret. Navy Lieutenant Commander Ron Roen worked with Sheboygan County Board Chairman Mike
Vandersteen and Manitowoc County Board Chairman Paul Tittl to request the flyover.
The flyover has been scheduled in conjunction with the Wisconsin Naval Ship Association’s (WINSA)
second annual Land Sea Air Military Ball at Amore in Plymouth on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11.
Funds raised assist WINSA as they continue to make progress establishing the Naval Museum and
Education Center in the previous Alliant Energy operations building at 824 S. Eighth St. in Sheboygan.
WINSA is in the process of bringing the USS Canon PG-90 to be placed on display at a prominent position
on the Sheboygan River in the city of Sheboygan just west of the Eighth Street bridge. They also plan an
Education Center along with the Naval Museum which will highlight Sheboygan’s maritime and patriotic
heritage. It will include a museum to honor combatants, veterans of all services and Wisconsin’s Naval
In Plymouth, the American Legion and VFW will be celebrating the birthday of the US Marine Corps.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m., the Legion and VFW Honor Squads will be at the Veterans Trail. After the flyover,
the gathering will then be invited to the Legion clubhouse for a statement from Mayor Donald Pohlman and
Veterans Service Commission member Konrad Kaczkowski on the significance of Veterans Day. Cake and
coffee will be served.
The flyover of the city of Kiel is to honor all veterans and to commemorate the memory and sacrifice of
SSG. Amy Krueger, a Kiel native, who was killed in the Ft. Hood shootings almost two years ago.
Ron Roen assisted Sheboygan and Manitowoc Counties to apply for and request this Flyover. After his
retirement from military service, he has continued to serve multiple communities in Wisconsin and Arizona
with aviation support. In addition he will be on site for the Plymouth flyover and will provide radio
communication with USAF F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft.

Literacy training volunteers sought

The Literacy Council Project of the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County is looking for volunteers
to provide literacy tutoring to adults.
As part of the annual 1200 Tutors in 12 Weeks campaign, the Literacy Council Project will provide free
training for new volunteer literacy tutors Nov. 10 and 15. The training will take place in Sheboygan from
5:30 to 9 p.m. each evening.
Volunteer tutors provide one-on-one tutoring for adults who wish to improve their literacy skills, or learn to
read, write, and speak English. Literacy Council tutors help adult learners gain the literacy skills they need
to achieve their individual goals, such as getting a job or promotion, advancing their education, helping
their child with homework, and communicating with service and health care providers.
If you have a couple of hours a week to devote to helping an adult improve his or her literacy skills, please
consider becoming a volunteer tutor. Literacy tutors are needed throughout Sheboygan County. No prior
experience is needed and the Literacy Council provides tutors with all the necessary training and tutoring
The Literacy Council has collaborated with Wisconsin Literacy for its annual 1200 Tutors in 12 Weeks
campaign. The campaign, sponsored by Verizon and Alliant Energy Foundation, aims to recruit 1,200 new
literacy tutors across Wisconsin.
The Literacy Council Project will receive funds from Wisconsin Literacy based on the number of new
volunteer tutors recruited and trained from Sept. 8 through Dec. 1.
