Three Lakes Badminton Tournament Fundraiser
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.

RHINELANDER - For the first time on Friday people heard the voice of the woman accused of killing her 1-year-old step-son in Rhinelander.

Avery Edwards died from blunt force trauma earlier this year.

Most preliminary hearings get waived, or you hear from one witness. But on Friday, the court heard from a responding officer, a medical expert, and Ellen Tran herself.

Tran claimed she was trying to protect Edwards. 
 
Prosecutors played recordings from Tran's 9-1-1 call.

"Something's wrong with my stepson, I just got him out of the bath and he's not acting right," said Tran in the call. 

Edwards died soon after that call. 

Oneida County District Attorney Michael Schiek argued. 

Tran changed her story and never mentioned Edwards fell when she first called 9-1-1.

 Schiek played tapes of investigator interviews with Tran.
