As You See It

Water level

To the Editor,

The city of Plymouth needs to get the Mill Pond water level back up to normal this fall or we will lose all the fish from a winter freeze-out.

At the public unveiling of the corridor plan on August 19, people found out that the dam spillway needs to be repaired by the city immediately, and boards were removed from the dam to lessen the pressure.

Fishing had been improving the last few years; some de- cent Northern Pike have been caught on spinner baits along with some Bass and a mixed bag of others.

Last summer the Mill Pond Lake Association planted $1,000 worth of Perch and Bluegills. The low water level, besides being unsightly, also limits the recreational use for canoeists and kayakers.

Getting the water level back to normal should be high on the City’s list.

Plymouth, Wisconsin, shows what it means to be Midwestern Friendly!

Last Saturday, we were on our way to a former colleague’s funeral in Plymouth, Wisconsin. Not always trusting the GPS, we left Watertown early to be sure to make it on time. Sure enough, the highway was blocked and the detour did no go past the funeral home.

Out of panic that we would miss the funeral, we stopped a man who was cutting his grass to ask if he could help us.

Since we were not from the area, directions would be impossible, he said. But then he added, “Just a minute. Let me go in and let my wife know that I am leaving and I will lead you to the funeral home.”

He pulled out his white truck, led us for about 5 miles along country roads, and got us there just in time. When we thanked him, he just said he needed a break from cutting his grass anyway.

Our thanks go out to this man who showed us that Plymouth is really Midwestern Friendly!

To the Editor,

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County recently held its 2nd annual Chowdown in Cheesetown fundraiser at the Plymouth Arts Center.

It was a wonderful evening of food, fun, and music. Sixteen chefs prepared a delicious range of grilled dishes for the guests. Congratulations to Dennis Erdly for winning the Big Cheese award for most popular dish, cedar planked grilled salmon. A special thanks to our many sponsors including Sargento Cheese, Van Horn Auto, Johnsonville, Masters Gallery, and Vollrath Company.

This great event would not have been possible without each organization’s generous support.

Also, thanks to the chefs who donated their time, talent, and energy to make each dish appealing. The food was amazing!

Finally, thank you to all those who attended and made the event a success. We are fortunate to have such generous supporters of our mission to provide mentors for children. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing everyone next year.
