CRANDON - Remember the unlucky beagle who needed surgery? We brought you his story yesterday.

Well thanks to you his surgery is paid for and Lucky seems to be on a "fortunate-run" for once.

Forest County Humane Society Manager Marin Herbert says overwhelming support came in from the Northwoods for Lucky.

He needed to raise seven hundred and fifty dollars for surgery to have his broken leg amputated and because of all the Northwoods support he's ready to go.

He's set for surgery next Tuesday. We'll check back in on him next week.

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. He said he found the sketches in Martinson's room.

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.

GOODMAN - Many Northwoods communities keep pushing for better broadband internet. Last year, a $90,000 grant from the state Public Service Commission helped the Lakeland area improve broadband. Now, the state pot of money for similar grants could grow.

The legislature's budget committee voted to approve a plan last week. It would make an extra $1.5 million available for grants over the next four years.

"(Broadband) has a huge importance," said Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), who sits on the Joint Finance Committee. "We need to roll more out. If we could, I would have liked to have put more money toward broadband grants."
