Oneida County Gets Permanent New Jail Admin.
RHINELANDER - We met Oneida County's new permanent jail administrator today. The appointment came after long-time jail administrator Kaye Juel passed away in February.

Sheriff Grady Hartman welcomed Sandra La Du-Ives to the post today. La Du-Ives started filling in as jail admin. in February. She was the assistant jail admin. for the past nine years. She brings 14 years of experience in corrections to the job, as well as mentorship from Juel.

La Du-Ives already has ideas for improvements to the Oneida County Jail. She wants the public to know they're working for them.

"We get up and we put on our badges and we come to work every single day with pride. And we want to really work for the citizens of Oneida County, and the state of Wisconsin and do our very best to put a positive spin on things that are generally negative," says La Du-Ives.

Two others were also promoted today. Deputy Nate Ouimette is now a patrol sergeant.

Ken Kortenhof was head of Oneida County's Emergency Management. But now that it's merged with the Sheriff's Office, Kortenhof is now the Support Services Director and Emergency Management Director.
