Rhinelander High School Gets New Liaison Officer
RHINELANDER - Parents send their children to school expecting a safe environment.

In Rhinelander, someone new will be making sure that happens.

Tyler Young is a new liaison officer at Rhinelander High School.

He is a native of Rhinelander and graduated in 1989.

He has seven children with two of them at the high school right now.

"They're groomed into it because dad's always been in law enforcement and we were able to talk about it more," said Young.

"They were able to talk about with their grandfather because their grandfather was a English teacher, vice principal and principal here."

Getting up for work for most people can be a pain, but Young looks forward to going to work everyday.

"A lot of time when I work patrol, a lot of your contacts with people weren't always positive. The majority were involved in corrective work on somebody's behavior or what they're doing," Young said.

"At the school here, most of my contacts throughout the day are positive. Positive energy. Happy people. And it makes it fun to go to work."

He says the district strives to improve on the safety of the staff and students.

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that loosens fish farm regulations.

Under the Republican bill, fish farms no longer need permits to discharge material into a wetland if the wetland was created for fish farming. Natural water bodies can serve as fish farms and farms wouldn't need permits to construct or enlarge artificial water bodies connected to a navigable waterway. New permit conditions will be prohibited unless needed to meet water quality standards.

ONEIDA COUNTY - Prosecutors think an Oneida County Sheriff's deputy used her job to steal cash, but she could get those charges dropped if she completes a diversion agreement with the court.

Sarah Gardner, 41, also known as Sarah Welcenbach, faces two felony misconduct charges in Oneida County.

According to the criminal complaint, prosecutors believe she paid herself about $1200 from a cash box her office used for drug investigations.

The diversion agreement says Gardner must pay the money back to the Sheriff's Office and complete a six-week accounting course at Nicolet College.

If she does those things, the state can ask to dismiss the case.
