Inaugural Northland Pines fundraiser a big success
EAGLE RIVER - The cost of sports equipment keeps rising. In order to make sure student athletes stay safe, it's important to make upgrades often. So where does that money come from?

Today the Northland Pines football program hosted their first ever golf tournament fundraiser.

80 golfers hit the links in Eagle River to compete in the scramble.

It was a huge success, bringing in close to $10,000. 75 percent of that is going to football and the other 25 will go to the booster club.

The Pines coaches were thrilled with the result and are happy to be able to provide new equipment for their players.

RHINELANDER - DNA evidence from a pair of sweatpants could link a Northwoods man to a violent sexual assault. Prosecutors offered up some of that evidence against Richard Loppnow in Oneida County court on Wednesday morning.

The victim accuses Loppnow, 38, of forcing her into several sexual activities twice on his property south of Eagle River back on October 28 and 29th of 2017.  

The criminal complaint shows the first assault happened in a building on Loppnow's property.  Testimony revealed claims that Loppnow held a gun to the victim's head.

"[Loppnow was] advising that she could either be humiliated or shot in the head," Oneida County Detective Sergeant Ryan Rossing testified.  "She chose to be humiliated due to not wanting to be harmed."
