Rhinelander mother, son arrested on bath salts charges
RHINELANDER - Police believe a Rhinelander mother and son used bath salts.

They arrested the two on Wednesday.

The mother is also charged with dealing bath salts.

Police arrested 48-year-old Elizabeth Tietsort and her son, 28-year-old Jeremy Raznick at the home they share on Thayer Street.

A postal inspector noticed some packages addressed to Tietsort from a jewelry company.

That jewelry business is a known front for bath salts distribution.

Tietsort told investigators she ordered the jewelry, not the bath salts.

But she later admitted to ordering drugs from the company three times.

She also admitted to giving bath salts to another woman.

Raznick told investigators he smoked bath salts three weeks ago.

He also told them he knew his mother was buying bath salts online.

Tietsort is out on a $5,000 signature bond.

Raznick is out on a $2,500 signature bond.

Tietsort will be back in court next week.

Raznick will be in court at the end of March.

MADISON - Republican legislators are circulating a bill aimed at ending the federal requirement to use reformulated gas in six southeastern Wisconsin counties.

The legislation asks President Donald Trump's administration to grant a reprieve from use of the specially formulated gas that reduces ozone pollution. The requirement was implemented in 1995 in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington, Racine and Kenosha counties. Supporters say the gas is no longer needed because of advancements in emission control equipment.

RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander facility helps people shake drug addictions, counsel families, and get their lives back together after things like a drunk driving arrest.

The human service center saw a 36 percent increase in the number of people it's helped this year.

However, financial changes could dramatically impact those services.

Center Director Tamara Feest sees the good her facility can do on a daily basis.

"We know that people need these services," said Feest.

The center helps people with drug and alcohol problems, developmental disabilities and mental health disorders.

"Not only are we having more people come in, but they are also needing to stay longer," explained Feest.

But the latest state budget could impact the center's ability to help those people.

"That was an unexpected cut," said Feest.

WASHINGTON - An inscrutable provision in the Republican health care bill would apparently steer extra cash to Wisconsin. That's the home state of GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, a co-sponsor of the bill.

One health care consultant says the language could mean hundreds of millions of dollars for Wisconsin, though others say it's hard to tell how much money is at stake. Several analysts said they weren't aware the provision would apply to any states but Wisconsin.

RHINELANDER - An Oneida County detective believes that if a toddler hadn't been left in the care of his stepmother, 28-year-old Ellen Tran, he might still be alive.

Twenty-month-old Avery Edwards died in April of blunt force trauma at a Rhinelander home, and Tran is charged with first-degree reckless homicide in the death. She said the child slipped in the shower, but evidence pointed to an intentional act.

On Wednesday, Ellen Tran's husband, Trung, was also charged in the death of his son. Prosecutors say he knew leaving the toddler with his wife was dangerous, and he deserves some of the blame.
