TOMAHAWK - Thieves probably went looking for guns this weekend. They broke into Statton's General Store in Tomahawk not once, but twice.
The first attempt this weekend was early Friday morning, around 3 a.m.
This isn't the first time the owners have dealt with this either. Thieves stole several guns from Statton's just this last October.
Friday morning the alarm company called the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office. When police got there they saw a window had been pried out.
Saturday night around 9:30 the same thing happened. But that time a witness saw a person climbing out of a window.
"They have firearms, they have antique collectibles, they have a wide variety of what an old general store would have. What those people are after... one would assume guns, but we don't know that without talking to our suspects," says Lt. Tim Fischer, from the Lincoln Co. Sheriff's Office.
Owner Dick Statton says he has no doubt what they were after. The same thing that's already been stolen from him before-- guns.
"I've been doing this 18 years. I've never heard of, or never experienced one business get hit so many times," says Lt. Fischer.
Police ask you to call the Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers if you have any information.
The Boulder Junction Town Board voted two to one Tuesday night to move forward with a town plaza plan. The plan will now go to a design phase.
The board estimated the cost of the design phase to be between $30,000 to $50,000, but it was dropped to about $25,000 at the meeting.
Town Chairman Dennis Reuss and Town Supervisor Dennis Duke voted in favor, with Town Supervisor Denny McGann voting against the plan.
A little more than $1 million may not seem like a lot of money to a city like Madison or Milwaukee. But for a town of fewer than one thousand people, it's a lot. The Boulder Junction Town Board could vote Tuesday whether or not to move onto the next phase of a $1.26 million town plaza project.
Dennis Duke has a vision of what Boulder Junction could look like in a few years.
"This one has a much more artistic flair, this has a more engineering flair if you will," said Duke while looking at potential design plans.
THREE LAKES - The DNR hopes it won't find more Northwoods deer with chronic wasting disease.
Last year, a deer on a game farm near Three Lakes tested positive for the deadly disease. Although it hopes that incident is isolated, the DNR wants more data on the health of the Northwoods deer herd.
The agency is urging hunters near Three Lakes to give their deer heads to the DNR for CWD testing.
