MERRILL - Ask yourself if you've seen this man. 36-year-old Christopher Meindel is on the run. Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputies want to catch him.

Meindel was convicted of making and selling methamphetamine. He had been living on probation in Merrill.

Meindel went in for a regular meeting with his parole agent yesterday. When asked to provide a urine sample, Meindel refused and ran away.

Police think he might have cut off his electronic monitoring bracelet. He might have fled to the Baraboo area where he was traveling for work.

If you have any information about Meindel's location, please call the Lincoln County Crime Stoppers anonymous tipline at 715-536-3726.

WISCONSIN - Gogebic Taconite will no longer pursue mining in northern Wisconsin. The company scrapped its plans for a huge iron ore mine in Iron and Ashland Counties this spring.

But state Democrats aren't forgetting about the mining issue. They're proposing a bill which they say would close a loophole in the state's 2013 mining law. That law relaxed the permitting process for iron mines.

The Democrats' bill would make it illegal to fill or destroy the bed of a lake, stream, reservoir, or flowage to mine the materials underneath. Bill author Rep. Dana Wachs (D-Eau Claire) said right now, mining could be done legally under flowages and reservoirs.
