     Police work, police science, has changed dramatically in recent decades.
Those changes are clearly demonstrated in the memorabilia on display
in the Appleton police department museum. 
     The public gets a chance to see those changes Tuesday, August 5th, when
police hold  an open house in the lower-level of the police department from
9 a.m. until noon. 
     There's an extradition order for a Wisconsin man, signed by then-New York
Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt; a replica of a machine gun, used by
Appleton police in the 1930s; and a collage of pictures of men and women
who served the city in public service roles.
     Retired officer Arnie Nettekoven, who served from 1960 to 1990, is
custodian of the collection.  His badge, number 186, is on display.
     History buff or not, it's a collection you should see.  We have a sneak
preview of the memorabilia on our home page, whby.com., under
photo galleries.
     Enjoy!

     Matt Reynebeau has retired after 37 years at Xavier High School.  Twelve
years as a math teacher, 25 as principal.  But you won't find him sitting in a
backyard chaise lounge.
     In retirement, you'll find Reynebeau in a kitchen, making what have become
his famous Mr. Reyenbeau chocolate chip cookies.  Initially, the cookies were
sold at fund-raising events for ACES, the area's Catholic education system,
and during Catholic Education Week.
     If you have had one you know they are a chocolate-lovers delight.
     Matt Reynebeau and the cookies are the subject of an Assignment
Fox Cities, posted on our website, whby. com.   You'll find the program
under Audio Vault.

     Hugh Holly of Appleton had struggled with alcohol abuse for several
years, but that's in his past.  Now Holly can boast of four decades of
absolute sobriety.
     Holly grew-up in Pennsylvania, enrolled at Lawrence University,
planning a career in medicine.  But bars along College Avenue were a
distraction.  He left the university after a few semesters.
     Because he had roots in Waupaca, Wisconsin, Holly moved to a cottage
and became what he calls "a grease monkey."    Finally admitting he had
a problem, Holly called a "hotline," seeking help for the addiction.
     The help came, along with a new job opportunity, as an alcohol and
drug counselor, first of all for Waupaca county.  That training catapulted
Holly into his current position; executive director of Nova Counseling
Services in Oshkosh.
     Hear Holly's heart-warming story on Assignment Fox Cities.  You'll
find it on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault.

     The update on the Court-Appointed Special Advocates Fox Cities program has
been posted on our website, whby.com.   Executive Director Maria Turner says the
program is going well.  One of the advocates, Susan Sykes, shares a few moments
about her match.  It's a treasure to listen to.
     Newly-approved Advocate Sherry Olson Rogers is anxious to get started.   Rogers
retired recently and was looking for an opportunity to give back to the community.
     You'll find the AFC on our website, whby.com, under the category Audio Vault..
Perhaps  if you listen, you, too, may be inspired to volunteer.  
     The inspiration comes from loving kids and having compassion for those who
were abused or neglected. 
     Enjoy.
