Bloody items found in search for missing D.C. Everest gradSubmitted: 03/22/2013
ST. PAUL, MN - We might be one step closer to finding out what happened to a D.C. Everest grad who disappeared last month.

People looking for Kira Steger-Trevino found a bloody pillow during a search last weekend.

Investigators say the blood matches the DNA of Steger-Trevino. A volunteer searcher found the pillow, along with a pillow case, sports bra, shirt and sponge near Keller Lake, Minnesota.

They started looking there after a woman told police she was driving by Keller Lake early on Feb. 22 when she saw two men struggling with something the size of a person.

The new evidence will add to the complaint against Steger-Trevino's husband, Jeffery Trevino. He remains charged with second-degree murder.

Steger-Trevnio vanished February 21st. Her husband was charged after blood was found in their St. Paul home.

LAKE TOMAHAWK - All around you witness goodwill gestures. It could be as simple as a smile and wave or opening a door for someone. In Lake Tomahawk, it's making a pie.

"I made a pretzel crust with butter and sugar, " explains Sheila Punches. Sharon Hilgendorf adds, "Flour, for the thickening."

Snowshoe baseball's been entertaining crowds since the 1960's. But over at the concession stand, the pie takes center stage.

Strawberry rhubarb, banana butterscotch pie, blueberry pie, rocky road and coconut cream are just a few of the creations. "I like making ones that I think will appeal to the crowd," says Linda Penno.

Supreme Court rules against convicted conspirator of shooting in Stevens PointSubmitted: 07/24/2014

MADISON - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled against a man convicted for his role in plotting to kill his lover's husband.

The court said Thursday that Carlos Cummings did not invoke his right to remain silent when he told police during an interrogation to ``take me to my cell.''

A state appeals court last year upheld Cummings' conviction, saying his comment about wanting to be put in a cell was unclear.

The Supreme Court agreed. It also ruled that Cummings' 24-year prison sentence was not unduly harsh.

Antigo Mayor vetoes ambulance purchase, wants to see city buy from local companySubmitted: 07/23/2014

ANTIGO - The Antigo City Council will vote again to decide from which company they'll buy the city's newest ambulance.

The city council voted earlier this month to buy the cheapest ambulance.

Antigo's mayor vetoed that because he thinks buying a local ambulance is a better decision.

The Antigo City Council voted earlier in July to buy an ambulance from a company based out of Ohio.

The ambulance from Ohio was $66 cheaper than the bid from a company in Antigo, but the local ambulance would come with an extra year's warranty.

Antigo's mayor felt it was worth it to spend a little extra, that's why he vetoed the council's decision.
