Oneida Co. Sheriff Takes Oath of OfficeSubmitted: 01/25/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm


RHINELANDER - Grady Hartman can now call himself the new Oneida County Sheriff. Sergeant Hartman took the oath of office this morning in Judge Patrick O'Melia's Courtroom, then went out to start his first full day as Sheriff of Oneida County.

Governor Scott Walker appointed Hartman Tuesday to replace Sheriff Jeff Hoffman, who retired this winter.

He'll hold the position until the next election in 2014.

Hartman has been with the Oneida County Sheriff's Office for 13 years. He was a Sergeant the past seven years.

Hartman serves on the Rhinelander School Board, and as a Town of Crescent supervisor.

"I'm a family man first. I have a nice, young family. I like to get involved with the community, and I will continue to be out serving the community in many different aspects," says Hartman.

Hartman says there will be a brief transition period as he learns the ropes.

MADISON - A convicted sex offender from Rhinelander can keep pictures of children he cut out of magazines.

A state appeals court dismissed new charges against Albert Chagnon Thursday.

Prosecutors charged the 33-year-old last year with 23 counts of intentionally photographing a minor without consent. Chagnon was about to be released from prison when a guard discovered a notebook in his pants containing photographs of fully-clothed young girls cut out of magazines or newspapers, including the Lakeland Times.

Chagnon argued that the charges should be dismissed because he didn't take the photographs. The 4th District Court of Appeals agreed with him Thursday, saying state law doesn't cover Chagnon's conduct.

RHINELANDER - Rhinelander's search for a new city administrator got a little narrower - from nearly two dozen candidates to a handful. Rhinelander has been without a city administrator since the middle of May when Blain Oborn went to Lake Geneva.

The Rhinelander City Council held a meeting last night to go through a list of candidates. At the end of that meeting, they went front from having 22, down to a list of four.

"We have four candidates that we have coming in," said Rhinelander's Mayor Richard Johns. "And the candidates vary, one's from Eau Claire, Antigo, Kewaskum, and Stevens Point. We pretty much have a local area so-to-speak, rather than out of state."

MILWAUKEE - The victims of a plane crash in Milwaukee have been identified as the chief operating officer of a Boston capital investment firm and his daughter.

Summit Partners said in a statement Thursday that the victims of Wednesday's crash are Joseph Trustey and his daughter, Anna.

They were traveling to the Midwest for a college visit.

Federal investigators will try to determine why the single-engine plane crashed and erupted in flames at Timmerman Airport on Milwaukee's northwest side. Neighbors whose houses border the airport witnessed the crash at about 6 p.m. but say the flames and smoke made it impossible for them to help.

Witness Ken Gipp says the plane was flying very low when the right wing hit the ground and a wall of flames ignited.
