JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Growing up east of Janesville’s Traxler Park, Rob Bier, 51, explored the city by bike, stopping to hike along the banks of the Rock River downtown where the foundations of a brick building stood, or trek wooded lots dotted with old bottles behind Mercy Hospital or the ice arena.

Years later, as he learned more about the city’s past, he realized his childhood adventures shared a common denominator.

TOWN OF LYONS — It’s a dueling exercise of labor and love. Kayaking creates a physically challenging activity but offers a soothing mental break from work and life’s daily grind.

Several Walworth County residents said that combination is what keeps them searching for any excuse to hit area waterways.

Lyons Township resident Jack Hawkins turns 80 in July and isn’t about to quit paddling.

“I started kayaking in the early 1990s before it really became a popular sport in the Midwest,” Hawkins said.He has been active all of his life, whether downhill skiing, sailboating, hiking, fly fishing or working as a ski patroller, a role he played for 15 years at the American Birkebeiner and at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

The Illinois native moved to Walworth County nearly 20 years ago and owns a place in Door County, a frequent destination to quench his kayaking thirst.

However, much of his time is spent on Geneva Lake.

“ClearWater Outdoor does a social paddle Monday mornings … we usually hit the water by 8 and are off the lake by 10,” Hawkins said of beating the heavy boat traffic of the county’s largest and busiest lake. “Sometimes I’ll start at Big Foot Beach and go to the north shore and back, about a 7-mile roundtrip. You get quite a workout.”

But that’s nothing new for Hawkins.

“I’ve always been a ‘quiet’ sports kind of guy,” Hawkins said of his many outdoor recreational pursuits. “I was trying to decide which kind of watercraft that I would get more use out of.”

Kayaking it was. And now Hawkins proudly talks about the three wooden kayaks — 12-, 14- and 18-footers — he has built himself.

“I like the idea of using something that’s self-propelled but light enough that, unlike a canoe, I can maneuver myself,” he said. “Although, it feels at least 5 pounds heavier every time.

“It’s fun zipping around to all the different places, maybe stopping somewhere for lunch,” he said of his many Geneva Lake excursions.

“It gives you different looks and perspectives. They’re all challenging, but yet they’re refreshing. It’s nice to have something close by like this.”

Picking up the paddles

Polly Marzahl and her husband, Jim, took up kayaking about three years ago thanks to CSI Media co-worker Katie Busateri.

“Katie posted a picture on Facebook with her feet sticking up with lily pads and everything in the background … it was such a pretty picture, and the next day I said, ‘I can do that. I want to do that,’” Marzahl said.

“We went out with them and floated around Lake Comus and loved it … then we bought our own kayaks, a cheaper set,” she said. “But we quickly realized we wanted something better and bought new ones the next year.”

And Marzahl can be found paddling somewhere every chance she gets from spring through fall.

“I try to get out every weekend, sometimes twice, and sometimes even during the week,” she said. “So that’s probably at least 30 times a summer.”

Busateri got her first taste of kayaking during a trip to Maine in 2002, enjoying a sea kayaking adventure in the Atlantic Ocean.

“I fell in love with it on that first trip,” said Busateri, who tools around in her 12-foot Wilderness Systems kayak, nicknamed “The Hulkster” because it’s big and green.

She used to kayak on a lot of lakes and has enjoyed the waters of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with relatives and her late husband, Jason Chase, including a short jaunt on Lake Superior.

“Polly really got me into doing the creeks and rivers around here,” Busateri said. “I still do Geneva Lake, but you have to get out early to avoid all of the boats. We have seen more and more people, but it’s still not as busy on the creeks.”

She enjoys Turtle Creek and the Yahara River and has traveled sections of the Sugar and Kickapoo rivers.

The Marzahls, Sugar Creek Township residents, own 13-1/2-foot Jackson Journeys.

“They could be overkill … they’re like a sea kayak, which start at about 14 feet long,” she said. “So ours are on the edge of being too long for creeks.”

But as far as she’s concerned, there is no going back.

“A lot of people think about the little hole (cockpit) and if they capsize they’ll not get out and drown, but gravity usually sucks you right out,” Marzahl said. “If you take the proper precautions and are all geared up you’ll be completely safe. But it’s always safety in numbers — I never go alone because crazy things can happen.”

Turtle Creek and the Yahara River are Marzahl’s favorite destinations, although she has navigated the Sugar River near Brodhead and has tackled the Fox River in Waukesha County, the Kickapoo River and even a section of the Wisconsin River.

“Turtle Creek is a favorite because it has a lot of different sections you can do,” she said of its great scenic and natural variety. “You can do the School Road section, the Oriley Road section, the Highway 140 section to Sweet Allyn Park. Each part offers something a little different.

“Sometimes we go from County C to Oriley Road, what some people call the Fairfield section. We always see a lot of wildlife, birds and turtles.”

They also typically run into one of their special acquaintances, a customer they’ve nicknamed Larry the Heron.

An important thing for novices to know is that kayaking can be time consuming because of loading, unloading, transferring to vehicles, etc.

Many of the Marzahls’ escapades cover about four hours, but they’ve done six-hour adventures.

“I just love it,” said Marzahl, who when properly fitted for inclement weather has paddled in the rain.

She also enjoys the Yahara, often doing a stretch north of Janesville from Stebbinsville Road to Fulton.

“The Yahara is our favorite,” Marzahl said. “It’s so beautiful and more secluded, and it’s wider, faster and the water is clearer. We often see multiple eagles along that stretch.”

Marzahl recommends that veteran and novice kayakers alike check out Timothy Bauer’s website www.milespaddled.com or www.usgs.gov for detailed information about whatever waterway you’ll be using.

She keeps a diary of her outings, jotting down such information as where they went, what they encountered as far as downed trees, what they saw, water levels, etc., to use as reference the next time.

But the main thing is getting away and communing with nature.

“It’s like an emotional de-fragmenting of your hard drive,” Marzahl said. “Your mind needs to get out where you can listen to everything going on around you … like the sound of your paddle going through the water. It’s so peaceful and soothing. It’s therapy.”

Busateri couldn’t agree more.

“I would recommend the Kickapoo because it’s the most scenic with all of the rock formations,” Busateri said. “But regardless of where you go, you see all kinds of birds … like the time we went on Cravath Lake in Whitewater. I didn’t even know what it was at first, but it was a huge crane. You see duck hunters, who stir up different birds and things. But you see different kinds of nature every time. All of the places we go have their own little attractions.

“And it’s so relaxing and takes away all of the stress,” she added. “We’ve seen more and more people on the various streams, but it’s still a pretty peaceful experience.”

STATELINE NEWS -- Life has come full circle for Dana and Matt Brandl, at least when it comes to their families and dairy breakfasts.

Their parents were in the spotlight in 2007 as the Karlens hosted the Green County affair while the Brandls entertained at the Rock County event.

However, Dana and Matt are doing the honors for the latter gathering this year.

The Rock County Dairy Promotion Council’s annual celebration is scheduled for Saturday, June 10, 2017,  from 6:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the farm at 10817 E. Lake Shore Road in Clinton. Cost is $6 for adults and $2 for children 10 and younger.

Several thousand people are expected to visit the property located on East Lake Shore Road just southeast of Clinton, which his parents, Dave and Anne, bought in 1985.

“They came to us last fall about hosting, which is kind of neat because it’s 10 years since our families did it,” Dana said. “The council has been unbelievable to work with. They have experience and have an outline of everything that’s scheduled. They do all of the set-up, and they are in charge of lining up the specialists, like a nutritionist and a veterinarian. But they’re flexible and open to other ideas.”

Meanwhile, Matt and Dana, who have been married for three years, remain in partnership with his folks but took over daily operation of the farm last year.

They have about 315 acres, 300 of them planted in corn and hay, which stays on the farm to feed a herd of 250 milking cows. They produce nearly 650,000 pounds -- 75,500 gallons -- of milk every month.

They spend about 12 hours daily milking, including cleanup, with shifts starting at 4 a.m., noon and 8 p.m.

“The people who get here early enough (for the dairy breakfast) should get to see us finish up our first milking that day,” Matt said of their parallel parlor that features eight cows on each side and involves three people, one on each side and one to move the animals in and out and clean barns.

Every ounce of that milk is accounted for, and technology has helped tremendously.

“Dad used to keep track of everything in paper notebooks,” Matt said, remembering how tough it was to find the right information sometimes. “Now, everything is computerized and much faster.”

The Brandls’ operation features a crew of about 10 full- and part-time workers, mostly family members and a couple of good friends. However, Dave endured open-heart surgery on Easter Day and isn’t back to 100 percent yet, a situation that doesn’t suit someone who enjoys the rigors of farm life.

Families like the Brandls know nothing else other than working and farming. That even applies to Matt and Dana’s 2-year-old son, Max, who takes his job seriously, hauling feed for the cows back and forth in his Little Tikes red wagon.

“I can’t imagine Matt doing anything else,” Dana said. “In farming, you need experience in so many areas … crop production, the veterinary field, fixing equipment.”

Matt responds: “When we’ve got a sick cow, I call Dana and ask her what I should do.”

That’s because she does lab work at Stateline Veterinary Service in Darien on a part-time basis.

Dana is from near Monticello, about 10 miles north of Monroe, where she and her siblings were the fourth generation to live on the land that has been in the family of Swiss ancestry since 1926.

“I helped feed calves pretty much since I started to walk,” she said.

They met at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where Matt was taking a short course in agriculture after studying business at UW-Whitewater for a year.

His yearning to return to the farm had proven to be too strong, so he followed his heart.

“It involves long days, but I love farming,” Matt said. “And I love working for myself.”

And that means, among many factors, keeping abreast of changing technology and the sometimes-volatile financial markets.

The Brandls were not affected by the recent drama involving Wisconsin milk producers and trade issues with Canada.

“Anytime you have so much milk on the market, it can affect the whole system more long term or indirectly,” he said.

They belong to the Rolling Hills Dairy Cooperative, which started in 2006 with 13 members, including Dave Brandl. Today it includes 170 farmers throughout southern Wisconsin.

And some of them no doubt were among the estimated 3,800 people who attended the previous event at the Brandl farm despite the fact Janesville and other parts of the county received rain that morning in June 2007.

“We’re anticipating around 4,500 to attend, but we’re preparing for 5,000,” Matt said.

But he and Dana are looking forward to playing host again.

“Many people still don’t know a lot about how a family farm works or where their milk comes from,” Dana said. “We treat these 300 (calves) like they’re our babies. It’s good for people to see that these families are committed to farming.”

The dairy promotions council will have a large tent and tables set up in a green space adjacent to the house, and parking will be in the field to the west. The Rock County event is one of the more than 72 breakfasts across Wisconsin promoting June Dairy Month.

The all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast includes ham patties, yogurt, cheese sticks, applesauce, ice cream, milk and coffee. Activities include tours, a crafty cow contest, music from the band Heatwave and the Rock County 4-H choir, a small animal display, tractor wagon rides and the Rock County ag ambassador leading an educational game area for children.

But the event is about much more than that.

“I like hosting the dairy breakfast because it means cleaning up some things you normally don’t get to,” Dana said, to which her husband responded, jokingly, of course, “I don’t like it because you have to clean up things you normally don’t get to.”
