Door County artists continue making big money for the economy

By Terry Kovarik              

A musical at Northern Sky Theater, jazz or classical music at the Birch Creek Music Performance Center, a performance at Midsummer's Music, and an exhibition at the Hardy Gallery share one thing in common. They're big money makers for Door
County. An economic impact study released last summer found the arts generated nearly $25-million in business annually. That generated a lot of publicity in outside publications. Mona Christensen, Executive Director of the Birch Creek Music Performance Center, can't say whether those articles have attracted more people. But she says some recent jazz concerts have become increasingly popular.

 



 

Those concerts were free. But according to the Arts and Economic Prosperity Study", each person attending such events spent an average of $77 each on meals, lodging and souvenirs and gifts.

Food trucks give new spin on dining

By Tim Kowols       

Scat's Got Your Tongue may not move as much as some food trucks, but it is still giving the same unique experience for diners in Sturgeon Bay. This summer marks the first full season for the food truck operated by Rob Scaturo of Scaturo's Baking Company and Cafe, who debuted Scat's Got Your Tongue last July. The food truck offers different menu items than its bricks and mortar counterpart and changes with its customer's tastes. Scaturo says any business selling food is competing with each other but believes he has been sensitive to other competitors.



Other than its Wednesday residency at Martin Park for city events, Scat's Got Your Tongue is open Thursday-Sunday on the corner of Michigan and 2nd Avenue.

Why be a Musician and an Artist? -- A Career Series

By Terry Kovarik              

Jeanne Kuhns has what some may consider a dream career. She's a singer-songwriter and painter, who owns Door County's Lost Moth Gallery. Jeanne Kuhns's family fueled her artistic side. Her grandmother, who knew Georgia O'Keefe, inspired her to paint. Her parents were folk music fans who played and listened to songs by Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Pete Segar and others. Kuhns has had to put aside her artistic pursuits to meet life's challenges. But she adds that's what's great about having artistic abilities.



 

Jeanne Kuhns's career path started at art school, changed to zoological studies and finally ended in nursing school to support her family but art and music remain her life's passions.

Teen classical music composer writes for Door County listeners

By Terry Kovarik              

SISTER BAY, WI (Terry Kovarik) -- Jacob Beranek :: buh-RON-neck :: has accomplished much in 19 short years. The composer in residence at the Midsummer's Music Festival in Sister Bay has written and published eight original compositions. A new composition debuts at Midsummer's Music's "A  Czech's Life" concert series. The Oconomowoc-native says when he writes a piece he has listeners in Sister Bay or wherever he's performing close to his heart.

 



Beranek is in his second summer as the composer in residence at Midsummer's Music Festival and will return for two more seasons. He'll also be performing at Prague Castle in Prague with the Band of the Castle Guards & Police of the Czech
Republic on November 18, 2018.

By Terry Kovarik              

New sidewalks and driveway aprons have been completed along County Highway C-Duluth Avenue south of West Oak Street. Similar work is underway south of West Oak Street to Highway 42 and 57. And Sturgeon Bay City Engineer Chad Shefchik says a final key portion of the project is nearing completion.



Shefchik says contractors have been able to keep the County Highway C-Duluth Avenue project on time, despite a later winter storm in April. While it's looking like the project is almost done, he urges people to be patient when driving through the area. But by mid-August everything should be done.

New Northern Sky Theater facility taking shape

By Tim Kowols       

Northern Sky Theater's new facility is still expected to open in time for 2019's fall season. After breaking ground on the two-building campus in May, crews have been working hard to complete its production and storage facility in time to be a staging area for winter work. Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst says it has been a long time since something of this scope has been built in northern Door County and believes people are excited for the progress being made.



The other building, which will house the administrative offices and a 250-seat theater, is expected to be open in time for the cast and crew to begin working on its fall 2019 shows next summer. Northern Sky Theater still has two weeks of shows at its stage inside Peninsula State Park before heading inside for its fall and winter season.

Door County light houses go from navigational to living historical aids

By Terry Kovarik              

Eagle Bluff Light House has served as a beacon to navigation through rough surf and dangerous shoals since the State of Wisconsin was only 20-years old. Like all light houses, it's long been automated. But visitors to Eagle Bluff and other Door County light houses come to learn more about the days when men and their families tended the light houses. Door County Maritime Museum Marketing and Events Coordinator Carrie Dorski says people just love to wonder what stories light houses, like those at Eagle Bluff and Cana Island, could tell.

 



 

The Door County Maritime Museum's Light House Festivals have become a prime event for Door County. The spring festival nearly sold out. The fall light house festival runs from October6-7. Tickets are on sale now.

Big Mouth and Power Tool Horns featured in Sturgeon Bay Wednesday night

By Paul Schmitt    

A popular band with local roots that has been playing together for over 27 years is still going strong.  Big Mouth and the Power Tool Horns are featured at festivals, private parties and establishments in the state. Bass guitarist Paul Sowinski of Fish Creek says the band started out in 1992 as a small Jazz and R & B group of college buddies wanting to play weekly.  He says within three years it evolved into a nine-piece band featuring a horn section that performed five to six nights a week.



 

Sowinski says most of the musicians in the band are area music teachers including the keyboardist, Matthew Buchman, who is the professor of Jazz at U.W. Stevens Point. Big Mouth and the Power Tool Horns will be playing at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay this Wednesday evening as part of the Harmony by the Bay concert series.

Some rare Paleo-Indian stone tools found in Sturgeon Bay become a permanent museum exhibit

By Terry Kovarik              

Darrel Cardy's family legacy will soon become a permanent exhibit at the Door County Historical Society Museum. For over four-generations his family found various stone spear points, flake tools and other artifacts on their farm. Darrel was certain they were similar to some 10-thousand to 12-thousand year old artifacts found in Clovis, New Mexico. In 1959, the Wisconsin State Historical Museum said Cardy's spear points couldn't be from the same time frame. Wisconsin would have been at the end of the Ice Age. Still, researchers made some pencil drawings of Cardy's spear points. During a 2003 dig on the property, archaeologist David Overstreet came to a different conclusion.

 



The Cardy site exhibit opens August 18th at the Door County Historical Museum. Darrel Cardy will be on hand to answer questions about his family'sunique, multi-generational finds.

Southern Door teacher opts to incorporate, not #disrupttexts

By Tim Kowols       

While others in her field are challenging the canons of high school literature classes on Twitter this summer, a Southern Door High School teacher has a different approach. The #disrupttexts movement began a month ago when four teachers took to Twitter with a hashtag to discuss the relevancy of some books that have been a part of high school curriculums for decades. Some of the books that have been featured in discussions include The Crucible and The Great Gatsby. Literature teacher Beth Huntley likes that the books are stimulating conversation and uses them to connect students to other more contemporary texts. She believes some of the themes in the books, no matter how old they may be, still have importance today.



Huntley says teachers consider the text's themes, where they live and the strength of their students when choosing a book for their curriculum.
