‘Big Band’ to swing at park

The Howard Stoll Family Pavillion will be jumping when the Plymouth Municipal Band’s “Big Band” performs Thursday, July 18, starting at 7 p.m.

The “Big Band” will feature such favorites as “April in Paris,” written by Vernon Duke with lyrics by E.Y. Harburg. “April in Paris” has been a huge success for the Count Basie Orchestra.

“Pennsylvania 6-5000,” the telephone number of the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City, became the inspiration for the 1940 Glenn Miller hit. The music was written by Jerry Gray with lyrics by Carl Sigman.

“Hot Java Jump” is an up-tempo swinger in the big band tradition that really cooks. It was written by internationally recognized composer Larry Neeck. In addition to composing, Neeck teaches instrumental music in the Webster (NY) Central School District.

“Big Band” personnel includes: trumpets - Carrie, Scott and Michael Winkler, Michael Collard; trombones - Jason Sebranek, Greg Heberlein, Payden Beyer, Branden Mueller; saxophones - Eunice Frey, Andrea Pannier, Karen Hansen, Gary Rosche, Tammy Bassuener, Michelle Adams; rhythm section: Val Kaat, piano, Carl Laack, drums, Al Schefsky, bass.

Fox and Branch at Plymouth Library

The Plymouth Public Library will host performers over the summer as part of the Summer Library Program. The next performance at the library will be by Fox and Branch, one of Wisconsin’s most famous children’s bands.

Well water tests offered in Mitchell

The Sheboygan County UW-Extension Office has teamed up with the County’s Land and Water Conservation Office and the certified lab at UW-Stevens Point to offer a drinking water testing program for residents of the town of Mitchell who obtain their water from a private well.

This is not a Department of Natural Resources program. Poor test results will not require a well to be shut down.

For a $20 fee (normally $48), well owners can participate in the “Homeowners Package,” which includes tests for bacteria and nitratenitrogen, two of the most common health related water concerns. In addition, pH, hardness, alkalinity, conductivity, chloride, and corrosivity will also be measured.

Other test packages will also be available, including a “Metals Package” that tests for arsenic, lead, and nine other metals ($21), and a “Triazine Screen” that tests for atrazine pesticides ($27). If all three tests are selected, the cost is discounted to $60.

Sample bottle pickup will be at the Mitchell Town Hall, W8095 Parnell Rd., Saturday, July 27 anytime between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Each participant will be given instructions for sampling his or her well water and will need to return the sample bottle to the Mitchell Town Hall Monday, July 29 sometime between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Due to the heavy workload at the lab, the number of participants in Mitchell is limited to 50. Sample bottles will therefore be handed out on a first-come-first-served basis. Payment will be expected at bottle pickup.

At 7 p.m. Aug. 29 a groundwater specialist will hold an educational session at the Osceola Town Hall, W1475 County F (four miles west of Dundee) to help residents understand their confidential test results and offer possible solutions to any problems.

For more information, contact Kevin Struck or Mike Ballweg in the UW-Extension office at (920) 459-5900.
