Kids capitalize on Hodag Country Fest
RHINELANDER - Hodag Country Fest sounds good but after camping for days, you may not smell good.

But Rhinelander High Schoolers can get you smelling fresh again.

They open the school's showering facilities to campers at Hodag Fest.

They also offer an all-you-can-eat hot breakfast.

"The best thing is the showers are not timed. They're clean, and spacious, and we have air conditioning if you want to get in from the heat outside. Breakfast is fresh and delicious," Rhinelander High School teacher Allie Johnson says.

This is the high school's seventh year of hosting the Hodag Breakfast and Shower.

The money raised benefits two organizations at the high school.

"We have two student groups that are really involved in this. The Student Council and the FCCLA. And they will be using that money for scholarships for leadership camps and activities, and for different activities around the school to promote the Hodags and school spirit," says Johnson.

They raised about 3,000 dollars last year.

You can shower or get breakfast Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 12pm.

Showers and breakfast cost 5 dollars each.

CRANDON - Forest County Sheriff's Deputy Craig Justice was justified in shooting and killing 31-year-old Brandon Cude on Jan. 4, Forest County District Attorney Chuck Simono ruled Friday.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice released the results of its investigation in the case, and Simono's decision, Friday afternoon.

The DOJ documents detail how Cude swung a shotgun at Justice at close range. The deputy had just learned Cude had felony warrants against him, and Justice was trying to arrest Cude. Justice fired four shots on the scene, a rural road south of Crandon.

"He didn't get a shot off?" a fellow officer asked Justice after the shooting.

"No. He tried, though. Pulled that sucker out and pointed it right at me," Justice replied in an exchange recorded on a body camera.

RHINELANDER - A 27-year-old Rhinelander woman put a down payment on a "hit" to kill her husband, according to police.

Megan Danielczak's down payment was actually taken by an undercover agent of the state Division of Criminal Investigation. Danielczak believed the agent was a "hitman."

Danielczak was arrested Thursday at her workplace in Tomahawk. She's currently in Oneida County Jail, facing charges for solicitation to commit first degree intentional homicide.

"We've had other cases involving domestic violence and things like [that], but this is my first time that I've seen that in 28 years," said Rhinelander Police Chief Lloyd Gauthier.

RHINELANDER - Police think an Oneida County man downloaded hundreds of pornographic pictures of young girls using a private chatroom.

During Danial Smith's preliminary hearing Friday, Smith's attorney asked if police had any way of knowing it was his client who downloaded the more than 700 photos.

The state Department of Justice learned a computer near Rhinelander downloaded the pictures in late 2016 thanks to a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  The internet protocol (IP) addresses from the downloads were linked to Smith's home on County C in the town of Stella.
