Kohler gets first course permits

(AP) — State regulators have approved the first of several permits for a Kohler Co. golf course opposed by those concerned about its environmental impact in Sheboygan County.

The Department of Natural Resources released documents Wednesday which show wetland losses, potential harm to area waterways, including Lake Michigan, and increased congestion at Kohler-Andrae State Park.

The Journal Sentinel says the DNR has approved a permit to allow the company to destroy more than three acres of wetland. In exchange, Kohler will create wetlands elsewhere in the Sheboygan and Manitowoc watersheds.

Kohler has plans to build a championship-level course on more than 200 acres of forest land, including some in Kohler-Andrae. Kohler also operates the Blackwolf Wolf Run and Whistling Straits courses in the area.

Program to focus on Wade House

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center will continue its 2017-2018 season of Second Saturdays on Saturday, Feb. 10 with Jim Willaert and the topic “Anything and Everything Wade House.”

Willaert is the Wade House curator of interpretation and curator of the Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum.

He will discuss the Wade House site and focus on the old 1848 hotel, but he’ll also talk about the world of plank roads and stagecoach transport, horse-drawn travel and a mid-1800s Wisconsin settlement.

Willaert will take his audience back in time, highlight the Wade House historic site’s growth and accomplishments and talk about the crazy stories that also accompany the real history of the amazing site.

This presentation will take place at the Plymouth Arts Center, located at 520 East Mill St. in Plymouth beginning at 9:30 a.m.

The event is open to the public with no reservations necessary.
