Caution removed at Paddock-Hooker Lake Assoc. beach on Paddock Lake

A swimming caution for elevated E.coli levels at the beach at Paddock-Hooker Lake Association beach on Paddock Lake has been removed after a follow-up test showed safe levels.

The re-test on Wednesday showed a result of 46 E.coli/100 mL.

The State Department of Health recommends posting warnings at beaches when the test results indicate a E.coli level of 300/100ml or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100ml. Wheatland (Lilly Lake) has a policy of posting an advisory for a level of E.coli 235/100 mL or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100 mL.

Rain/storm possible this morning, likely tonight

Graphic by Agata Urbaniak

The latest local National Weather Service forecast says there’s a 20 percent chance of showers, mostly between 7 and 9 a.m. Then there’s a 40 percent to 80 percent chance of a thunderstorm later, peaking between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday.

The high temperature Thursday should reach 86.

County clerk mailing suspension notices to dormant voters

If you have not voted in an election in a while, you may be getting some mail from Kenosha County soon.

Here’s an announcement from County Clerk Mary T. Kubicki regarding Notices of Suspension:

“Notice of Suspension” postcards are on their way to the mailboxes of 12,738 registered Kenosha County voters who have not voted in the past four years. This mailing from the Wisconsin Elections Commission is not a scam, advised Kenosha County Clerk Mary T. Kubicki. It’s part of a regular purge of inactive voters, required by state law. “If you haven’t voted since the 2012 presidential election, you’ll be getting one of these cards,” Kubicki said. “If you want to remain an active registrant, all you need to do is mail the card back to your municipal clerk.” Voters have one month to return the card to their city, village or town clerk. Those who do not respond will be marked as inactive. Voters will also be inactivated if the post card is undeliverable by the post office. “This mailing helps make sure every voter’s name and address is correct and current, and removes names of voters who no longer wish to vote,” said Michael Haas, administrator of the Wisconsin Elections Commission. “It is not designed to keep any active voter’s name off the poll list.” Voters who have changed their name or address should not return the postcard, but rather must re-register under their new name or address. Voters who have an up-to- date Wisconsin driver’s license or ID card may now register online up to 20 days before an election at www.myvote.wi.gov. They may also register by mail up to 20 days before an election, after which they may register at their municipal clerk’s office until the Friday before the election, or at their polling place on Election Day. Those who receive a postcard but believe they have voted in Wisconsin in the past four years are asked to contact their local municipal clerk. A directory of municipal clerks is available at http://elections.wi.gov/clerks/directory. “Those records are kept by the city, town and village clerks who administer elections, not the County Clerk’s Office,” Kubicki said. The 12,738 postcards mailed in Kenosha County are out of a total of 381,495 sent statewide. Wisconsin has a voting-age population of 4,461,159 people, 3,707,701 of whom were actively registered to vote as of June 1, 2017. Kenosha County had 98,985 registered voters, out of a voting-age population of 125,834.

A word from our sponsors: Kaleigh Fulmer, DDS joins Fulmer Dentistry

Dr. Kaleigh Fulmer DDS

Note: Fulmer Dentistry is a westofthei.com sponsor. This is a paid announcement. — DH

Jim Fulmer, DDS has announced the hiring of his daughter, Kaleigh Fulmer, DDS, as a full-service dentist to continue the tradition of outstanding dental care at his Kenosha and Paddock Lake offices.

Kaleigh was indoctrinated into the quality dental care environment at an early age, having been a regular at Fulmer Dentistry throughout her childhood. A 2007 graduate of Tremper High School in Kenosha, Kaleigh received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From there, she followed in her father’s footsteps and graduated magna cum laude with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the Marquette University School of Dentistry this spring.

“I am excited to be able to provide dental care for the entire family in a comfortable and friendly environment, building bonds that will last a lifetime (pun intended),” she said. “I believe that the foundation for excellent dentistry begins with trust and developing a strong patient-dentist relationship.”

She added that without that relationship “no dentist can deliver the highest quality dentistry and provide an excellent patient experience.”

Kaleigh said that as the daughter of a very successful dentist with an outstanding reputation it was a dream come true to go to work alongside her father and continue in his tradition of providing excellent dental services for Fulmer Dentistry patients.

Kaleigh also joins her father in her professional affiliations, including the Kenosha Dental Society, the Wisconsin Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

“It is my mission to listen to and understand each patient’s individual needs and concerns,” Kaleigh stated. “I will make sure they are aware of any and all treatment options.”

Dr. Jim said he was extremely proud to be the first dentist in Kenosha to have his daughter join in his practice and continue in the Fulmer tradition of providing outstanding dentistry to Kenosha County families. “Kaleigh has always been passionate about improving people’s lives. The fact that she has decided to do that through dentistry at Fulmer Dentistry could not make me any prouder.”

Like her father, Kaleigh puts a premium on continuing education. “Although I’ve learned from two of the best (Marquette Dental and my dad), I know it is important to never stop learning. I’m excited to network, to learn best practices from others in the industry, and to continually embrace and work with the latest trends in dental technology.”

To make an appointment with Dr. Kaleigh Fulmer, call the Fulmer Dentistry office in the Kenosha area at 262-324-1370 or Paddock Lake at 262-843-4643.
