Animal Mistreatment Case Before Judge in Marathon CountySubmitted: 12/04/2012
Story By Associated Press

WAUSAU - Protestors hope a Wausau woman gets the maximum sentence in a dog abuse case there.

20 year old Sean Janas was in court Monday.

She entered a plea of not guilty to two felony counts for the mistreatment of animals.

Prosecutors say Janas poisoned her boyfriend's dog, a German shepherd-Labrador mix named Mary, and tortured the animal before the 4-year-old dog died in June.


A group of protesters, some with their dogs, gathered outside the courthouse yesterday.

The protesters have called on prosecutors to seek the maximum penalties against the woman.

Janas remains in jail with bond set at 25-hundred dollars.

No charges in Milwaukee Police shootingSubmitted: 12/22/2014

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County district attorney says he's confident the public will see he made a fair decision in not charging a white Milwaukee police officer in the shooting death of a black man.

John Chisholm said the officer, Christopher Manney, was justified in using deadly force when his encounter with Dontre Hamilton turned into a fight last April. Manney shot Hamilton 14 times after Hamilton got control of the officer's baton.

Chisholm said the release of the full investigative file will help people understand what went into the decision.

WXPR: One of only a few public radio stations in the NorthwoodsSubmitted: 12/22/2014

RHINELANDER - You can't find public radio stations as easily as you can find commercial radio stations in the Northwoods. That's because they're funded mostly by donations. However, one Rhinelander radio station has found a way to make it work for more than 30 years.

"The station came about as the result of a dream, really, of a fella named Peter Nordgrin who came from northern Minnesota at a station very similar to this one," said Ken Krall, news director and interim station manager at 91.7 WXPR in Rhinelander. "He realized that there was a hole in northern Wisconsin for public radio."
