The two incumbents survived a four-way race for village trustee in Tuesday's election.
Bayside voters chose Mike Barth and Eido Walny to continue to represent them on the Village Board for the next three years. Incumbents Barth and Walny survived a four-way challenge from former Nicolet School Board member Kelly Herda and political newcomer Tom Noble in Tuesday's spring election. When reached by phone Tuesday night, Barth said he appreciates the continued support from village residents. “I’m just glad to see the support for what we’ve accomplished as a board,” Barth said. “I’m glad to see that’s recognized, and I look forward to continue to work toward improving Bayside.” Barth, 55, was first elected to a partial term in 2003 and has been re-elected in 2004, 2007 and 2010. Barth has lived in the village for 18 years and is a…

Dr. Rick Monroe served as head of the Nicolet School District since 2007.
Nicolet High School District Superintendent Rick Monroe, who surprised the community Tuesday by announcing his retirement, told Patch in an afternoon interview that the decision was based on an “accumulation” of factors and largely was a lifestyle choice because he wants more time for other pursuits. Those pursuits include his volunteer work for St. Vincent De Paul – he said that he and his wife visited three people who needed assistance last weekend alone – and his desire to spend more time in New York visiting his adult children, playing piano, and being involved in church. “To me, this hasn’t been a job or career. It’s been a lifestyle,” he said – a lifestyle that means he is stopped by people while “buying paint at Home Depot” and that…

Costs to maintain well water in Bayside continue to balloon, but switching to municipal water carries a large, long-term price tag.
Bayside residents looking to make the switch from maintaining private wells to the lesser responsibility of having city water may each face up to a $13,000 bill for constructing the mains over the next two decades. About 70 percent of Bayside residents currently have well water, whether individual, private or shared. Those wells are coupled with continually increasing costs for maintenance and Howard Feiges, trustee for Northway Water co-op No. 1, is making the push to get residents to switch to city water with Mequon Water Utilty. Feiges contends a homeowner on a private well can expect to pay $10,000 on repair costs during a 10-year period and a switch to municipal water would mean Mequon is responsible for the repairs. Currently, …

Memorial Day parades in Fox Point and Bayside have been sporadic for the past couple of decades but local veterans and their families hope even without a parade this year, those who have fought for our freedom will not be forgotten.
Every year, families pack up their minivans and children's PF Flyers with goodies, stake out their spot with blankets and wait for the Memorial Day parade — a humbling reminder of why we have the freedoms we do in America. But in Fox Point and Bayside, there will be no parades this year. "It's really a shame that the Scouts or American Legion or someone doesn't step up and keep it going," Tink Linhart of Fox Point said. "As the daughter, daughter-in-law, wife, and mother of Veterans, I think it's real important that we honor all who have served." Linhart's son was in the Marines for the re-taking of Falluja in November 2004 through February 2005. She said people just don't realize what military members have to go through. "Most people …

Kelly Herda is organizing women across Wisconsin to march on the state Capitol, one of 50 coordinated national efforts
On Saturday, women in all 50 states are uniting against the War on Women and marching on their state capitols. Among them is a Bayside mom who is spearheading a minivan brigade to Madison, where women plan to hold hands and surround the Capitol from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Kelly Herda said recent legislative changes and what she calls outright sexist comments from local politicians are driving her to fight for the rights of her daughters. "I have three daughters who, right now, are being told they’re second-class citizens," Herda said. Earlier this month, Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) sponsored legislation that repealed the state's 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which gave victims of wage discrimination a better chance in court. Grothman was…

A Bayside mom has a call to action for any parents looking to keep their kids safe while passing through on their way to school.
Dear Parents of Maple Dale Students: Last Spring my kids wanted to ride their bikes to school, but I wouldn't let them because I didn't feel that the Regent Road and Brown Deer Road intersection was safe. I witnessed adults being nearly run down while in that crosswalk. Needless to say, my kids were pretty upset with me, so I called the Bayside Police Department and asked about the possibility of "volunteering" to act as a crossing guard for that intersection. Lt. Tom Henkel advised me that we would first have to get an ordinance passed by the Village Board that would allow for crossing guards, then volunteers would need to be recruited and trained. This summer, Lt. Henkel was able to get the ordinance passed and is now offering to email…

Submissions from residents showcasing a day-in-the-life in Fox Point and Bayside.
Kelly Herda, of Bayside, submitted this picture of her children while they work their own lemonade stand where buyers even get free peaches if they purchase lemonade! "The peaches are homegrown in my yard and the lemonade is 25 cents a cup," Herda said. "Every summer this tree grows hundreds of peaches and we harvest them in August. We share with our neighbors and donate boxes of them to a small food pantry in the inner city." Editor's Note: Do you have a picture showcasing you or your family (pets included)? We want to paint a picture of what it's like to be a Bayside or Fox Point resident. If you have a picture you'd like us to use in our Village Scrapbook, email editor Sarah Worthman at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
