End in sight for State 23 projects

All work on road projects on State 23 in Sheboygan County will be completed this week, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

Crews will complete the remaining outstanding contract items (punch list) at the County O, County E, Pleasant View Road and County M intersections with State 23 that was not completed last week. There are no plans to perform work after Nov. 21, according to the DOT.

At the State 23 intersections with County O, E and Pleasant View Road, work consisted of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating the intersections.

Left turn lanes were constructed in the median of State 23 at each of these locations. These turn lanes will restrict the traffic that will be able to cross State 23. Traffic approaching from the north or south (attempting to cross State 23) will only be allowed to make a right hand turn movement onto State 23.

The intersections are open to the public. However, State 23 turn lanes maybe temporarily closed as needed to complete contract work.

At these intersections traffic is able to access east bound State 23 from the south and west bound State 23 from the north, right turn only. Traffic on State 23 is allowed to exit north or south at these two intersections.

Various lane closures east bound and west bound on State 23 may take place this week.

State 23 turn lanes maybe temporarily closed as needed to complete contract work. Traffic can utilize Willow Road to the west or Hillside Road to the east of County M as temporary alternate routes.

Rainbow Kids adopt new strategy

For the first time in 26 years, Rainbow Kids of Sheboygan has unveiled a new brand strategy to increase understanding of the impact the nonprofit makes in communities.

Through its new community impact brand strategy, Rainbow Kids will extend its reach into communities to nurture youth, adults and families who are going through a significant loss due to death, divorce, abandonment, incarceration or deployment.

“This is an exciting time for Rainbow Kids,” Michele Hemb, executive director of Rainbow Kids of Sheboygan, said in a press release announcing the new strategy. “Our commitment to building greater awareness for the important work we do in our community will enable us to expand our efforts and strengthen our community.”

As a part of the strategy, Rainbow Kids unveiled a new logo that reflects the care and hope a grieving person can expect from the free services they offer. With the subtle family reference within the heart shape and the emphasis on the word “Hope” their purpose is to convey an inviting and safe place to discuss and cope with the realities of their personal struggles with loss.

The refreshed logo, with its softer colors and new, contemporary look, better reflects the safety and hope of Rainbow Kids in helping grieving families deal with their losses. The new logo’s safe and welcoming shape symbolizes Rainbow Kids’ commitment to personal progress and healthy families.

Rainbow Kids is a nonprofit, community-based ecumenical group of Sheboygan County churches that have banded together to provide a peer support program for families who have experienced significant loss.

When a death, divorce, separation, or abandonment occurs, it deeply affects everyone in the family. Rainbow Kids provides peer support groups for ages four through adult led by trained volunteers who will guide participants through the grieving process.
