RHINELANDER - A Marathon County man who drove to Rhinelander to meet up with a 15-year-old girl for sex told police he nearly turned around.
Instead, Dustin Zernicke pulled into the Shopko parking lot Friday night and found officers waiting for him.
The 35-year-old Zernicke made his initial appearance in Oneida County Court Monday afternoon. Undercover officers posted an ad on Craigslist pretending to be a 15-year-old girl. The post said "Mom sent me [to] Rhinelander for the weekend and I have nothing to do."
GREEN BAY - Newly released emails show Green Bay's city clerk refused to set up an early voting site on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus in part because she feared the site would help Democrats.
One Wisconsin Institute, a liberal advocacy group, obtained emails from City Clerk Kris Teske that show state Rep. Eric Genrich, a Green Bay Democrat, was pressing her in August to open an early voting site on the campus. Teske refused, citing budget constraints, ballot security and staffing issues.
MILWAUKEE - Authorities say three women from Chicago were killed when a vehicle ran a red light and slammed their Uber ride in Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office released a statement Monday identifying the victims as 32-year-old Amy Taylor, 30-year-old Ashley Sawatzke and 35-year-old Lindsey Cohen. Autopsies are expected Monday.
MILWAUKEE - The backlog of needed repairs in the University of Wisconsin System has grown to an estimated cost of $2 billion.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the system is asking for $713.3 million in the next two-year state budget, and also asking the state to give the Board of Regents authority to manage projects that are funded by program revenues. Projects such as residence halls, recreational facilities and student unions that generate their own money don't involve state funding.
