Three Lakes Badminton Tournament FundraiserSubmitted: 03/10/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


THREE LAKES - Raising money for an entire classroom to take a trip out of state might seem like a daunting task, but that's what one local junior high school is trying to do.

Students at Three Lakes Junior High School are raising money for eighth graders to go to Washington D.C.

It will take $40,000 for all 37 students to go.

The class is just $1000 short of its goal.

"The three lakes community and the sugar camp community support this program," said eighth grade teacher, Donna Welhoefer.

"They support the school to an incredible extent and if we didn't have community members, staff members here at school like we do, we would have never been able to achieve this goal."

One of the students says he's gotten to know his community better and is grateful for all the support.

"It's great to see all the community decide to chip in, come out here and have some fun," said eighth grade student, Tommy Stuckart.

"I couldn't ask for more from the whole community to help us out."

They're also collecting aluminum cans to raise money.

That will go until March 21st.

PIEHL - The home of Ashlee Martinson and Thomas and Jennifer Ayers remains an active crime scene. But sheriff's deputies think an 18-year-old broke into it last week.

Martinson is charged with killing the Ayers couple at the home last month.

Last Thursday, Oneida County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Dan Mohr for burglary and theft at the home. He said he was a friend of Martinson.

According to the criminal complaint, Oneida County dispatch received a complaint that a car was between the storage shed and garage at the victim's house in Piehl.

Mohr was in the driveway when police arrived. Mohr said he got in through an unlocked front door. He said he didn't take anything, but after police searched him, they found three pocket knives, seven small pieces of paper with sketches, a pair of latex gloves, and black cloth gloves.

NORTHWOODS - Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin may be one step closer to being able to hunt deer at night again.

Last year, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Federal Judge Barbara Crabb to reconsider a ban on night deer hunting. In 1991, she ruled against night hunting in ceded territory for safety reasons.

The state of Wisconsin asked the U.S. Supreme Court to look at that decision, but on Monday the court decided not to take up the case.
