CRANDON - A Wabeno man could face up to 100 years in prison after being charged with two felony counts of sexual assaulting a 9-year-old.
Michael George touched and penetrated the girl at least 20 times between last Thanksgiving and Christmas, she told a Sheriff's Deputy.
"A gentleman advised our dispatch center that his daughter reported that she had been touched inappropriately," testified Forest County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Mullis. "I had her use an anatomically correct drawing and she circled the anal region."
The girl told the Sheriff's Deputy the incidents happened when another adult was either asleep or not at home.
George was arrested December 31st.
Forest County Judge Leon Stenz decided there was enough evidence to move forward with the case Wednesday afternoon.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
