|Future of Marshfield Transitional Shelter to be discussedWSAU / 2 h. 40 min. ago more|
So what's next for the homeless shelter in Marshfield now that it's been closed amidst allegations of possible child molestation, domestic violence, and even financial mismanagement? Mayor Chris Meyer says the Board of Directors for current shelter operators St. Vincent de Paul will be meeting on Thursday with at least one unnamed entity who may be interested in reopening the shelter. According to Meyer, "They have a meeting coming up on the 21st with the St. Vincent Board of Directors to talk about how they would transition into that facility and take over operations and reopen it." As for the future, Meyer says, "I am optimistic that there'll be positive news about the transitional shelter in the next several weeks, as this other party and the St. Vincent de Paul Board of Directors continue to have discussions about this." There could be some changes even though it seems likely that someone will reopen the facility. "That doesn't mean it would reopen in exactly the same form as a transitional shelter for families," Meyer explained. It may be more focused, for example, on domestic abuse." Among the organizations and groups who have expressed an interest in helping to re-open the shelter at a previous m"eeting are: Marshfield's Personal Development Center, who would use the shelter only for domestic abuse victims; Mary's Place, who currently provides housing for singles and couples, but not families; and Compassion in Action, who wouldn't actually take over the operation of the shelter, but would assist another organization in helping to get it back open. Meyer says the city doesn't have any direct say in how the shelter is run, but that city leaders and organizations including the United Way and the city's Police Department are closely following the issue because of its large impact on the city. "The thing that's been challenging with this whole project is that this is not a city facility nor is it a city service," the mayor said. "The city really has no jurisdiction over this facility." The St. Vincent Board of Directors has said that regardless of who runs the the facility, they're hoping that it can still be maintained as a "transitional shelter".

|Baldwin on taxes, #MeTooWSAU / 7 h. 15 min. ago more|
UNDATED (WSAU-WAOW) -- Wisconsin Democratic senator Tammy Baldwin sat down with Newsline 9’s Daniel Keith over the weekend to address some of last week’s Washington headlines. Baldwin made it clear that she’s not a fan of the GOP tax plan, which should see a vote by mid-week. “First of all I think that we all agree we want a system that is simpler and fairer -- especially for hard working families, small businesses, and manufacturers. [It's a] tax measure that's got even worse, in terms of its tilting toward the wealthy.” Baldwin added that she feels lawmakers are missing an opportunity to level the playing field for everyone. On the issue of sexual assault cases against her colleagues, Baldwin said she feels we’ve reached a turning point in society. “More women have felt like they can speak out. Like they're not necessarily risking their jobs to do so.” She went on to say that she feels those who accused President Trump of sexual assault during the election should have an opportunity to speak out as well. Baldwin closed the conversation by saying everyone should feel concerned about the recent Net Neutrality rollbacks enacted by the FCC.

|Highway patrol begins "Drive Sober" campaignWSAU / 8 h. 59 min. ago more|
MADISON, WI (WSAU) – The Wisconsin Highway Patrol wants to make one thing clear this Christmas week- Drive sober or get pulled over. The annual holiday saturation patrols began this weekend and will run through January 2nd, meaning extra highway patrol officers will be out to crack down on impaired driving in all forms. David Pabst with the DOT's Bureau of Transportation Safety says there’s one surefire way to avoid the consequences of driving impaired, and that’s to plan ahead. “If you are going to be enjoying yourself, make sure you have a designated driver or have made arrangements for a safe ride home,” he said. Pabst adds that with the nature of the holiday season, it just makes sense to be extra cautious. “There’s a lot of extra partying going on. It’s a celebratory type time of year with the holidays and all, so we just want to make sure people arrive home safely.” Pabst encourages holiday partygoers to download the Drove Sober mobile app, which can use GPS location on your phone to help arrange for alternate transportation in case you’ve overindulged. It also comes with a blood alcohol content estimator and a feature that lets users designate a driver in their group. Additionally, ride sharing services like Uber and Lyft are available in many areas as an option for a ride home. And while all the technology of an app is useful, party hosts can also help out by offering an extra bed or a couch to anyone that’s had too much so they can sober up and get home safely in the morning.

|$15,000 bell-ringing donationWSAU / 1 d. 19 h. 53 min. ago more|
MERRILL (WSAU-WAOW) - One generous donation covered almost half of the Salvation Army's fundraising goal in Merrill. A $15,000 check brings the group much closer to its $37,000 goal. Sharon Anderson, the coordinator of the bell-ringing campaign in Lincoln County, said the donation is from a Merrill businessman who wishes to remain anonymous. He also hopes his large gift will encourage others to give. "I pray that with the grace of God you can double this by the end of the bell-ringing period," the man wrote in a note with the check. Until now the single donation during a bell-ringing season was $500. St. Vincent De Paul administers the Salvation Army programs in Merrill that help needy people pay for things like rent and gasoline, Anderson said. As of Friday afternoon, with the big donation, bell ringers had raised $32,000 with just a few days to go before Christmas.

|Board Approves Marshfield Clinic in MinocquaWSAU / 2 d. 12 h. 4 min. ago more|
MINOCQUA, WI (WSAU-WDLB) -- After a year of hearings, arguments, and appeals, Marshfield Clinic finally got what it wanted on Thursday afternoon. The Oneida County Board of Adjustment granted a permit for Marshfield Clinic to build a 12-bed, 35-million dollar hospital in Minocqua. After six hours of arguments and a 4-1 vote in Marshfield Clinic's favor, the Board of Adjustment reversed a June ruling by the county's Planning and Development Committee. The only board member to vote against Marshfield Clinic's permit was Phil Albert. "There would be a destabilizing, if there hasn't been already, of the healthcare provided here in the Lakeland community," said Albert. Ascension, which owns the nearby Howard Young Medical Center, fought Marshfield Clinic's plans every step of the way. President Sandy Anderson said Ascension is disappointed with the decision of the Board of Adjustment, and view the proposed hospital as an unnecessary duplication of healthcare services provided to the community". Four of the five board members agreed with Marshfield Clinic's argument. That argument was made by Marshfield Clinic attorney John Giftos. "That seems like a good thing," Giftos said. "That's a second hospital for the town. It's a new hospital for the town. It adds jobs. It adds care. How can a hospital be bad for a community? How's that even possible for a hospital to be bad for a community?" Marshfield Clinic Regional Medical Director Dr. William Melms said construction would likely begin in the spring. The permit comes with conditions. Marshfield Clinic won't be allowed to build a helipad at the new hospital. It will also need to route the majority of traffic off Highway 70, not Townline Road, which serves as the clinic's current main entrance. Ascension has one option for appeal left. They could file a suit in Oneida County Circuit Court. Howard Young Medical Center gave no indication whether that move could be coming.

|Two arrested after heroin overdoseWSAU / 2 d. 22 h. 4 min. ago more|
FRIENDSHIP, WI (WSAU-WAOW) - The two people who supplied the heroin that led to a fatal overdose are facing criminal charges. Adams County Sheriff Sam Wollin announced the arrest of 46-year-old Krystyne Miller of Friendship and 49-year-old Luis Cruz of Adams. A search of Cruz's home found evidence "related to the use, packaging and sale of drugs," according to an arrest report. The heroin overdose death of a 46-year-old Adams County woman led to the charges. Kathleen Simms was found dead Dec. 6 at Oak Crest Motel in Adams, according to a criminal complaint. Miller was charged Wednesday with first-degree reckless homicide involving drug delivery after she told investigators she bought $46 worth of heroin at a home, gave it and a syringe to Simms, shared some of the heroin with her, watched her fall backwards onto a bed and fled when she realized Simms was not asleep, the complaint said. Her bond was set at $10,000 cash and she is to return to court January 9. No charges had been filed against Cruz by mid-afternoon Thursday. His case is being reviewed by prosecutors.
|Stevens Point Looking for Donations for K9 TrainingWSAU / 3 d. 7 h. 10 min. ago more|
STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) -- The Stevens Point Police Department is adding a K9 division and is asking for help from the community to train their first officer and dog team. The department is looking for donations to help send an officer and dog to a training school. Mike Rottier, Assistant Chief at the Stevens Point Police Department, says one of the main benefits of having a K9 unit will be the fight against heroin and meth in the city. "Those aren't things that police officers can smell. We can smell marijuana, burnt marijuana, or freshly cut marijuana, but we can't smell heroin and we can't smell meth," said Rottier. "But a dog can. It's our intention that the dog will help us stop the transportation of those drugs." He says the K9 they bring in would be able to help with more than just drugs. "Not only can it find drugs and narcotics, but it's also an apprehension dog and a search dog. It can find lost people based on a sent or elderly (people) that may have walked away." Rottier says the department is hoping that this is just the beginning for the K9 unit. "Our goal is, a couple years into it, looking to get a second dog. The life span of a working dog is anywhere from about 8 to 10 years as long as the dog stays healthy," he said. The 6 week training program will cost around $17,000. Donations made can be tax deductible. You can send donations to the Stevens Point Police Department Attn: K-9 Fund, 933 Michigan Avenue Stevens Point, WI 54481.
