RHINELANDER - Prosecutors think a Rhinelander woman stole almost eight thousand dollars from the Hodag BMX Club.

28 year old Nicole LeMere is accused of taking the money between August 2013 and February 2014.

That was when she was treasurer of the club.

Investigators say LeMere admitted to taking the money.

She told police she was "going through a hard time" and was going to pay the money back.

LeMere allegedly used the money to buy furniture, gas, food, and children's clothes.

She'll be back in court next month.

PHILLIPS - Many parents worry about their children being distracted while driving.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
