RHINELANDER - Police believe a Rhinelander mother and son used bath salts.

They arrested the two on Wednesday.

The mother is also charged with dealing bath salts.

Police arrested 48-year-old Elizabeth Tietsort and her son, 28-year-old Jeremy Raznick at the home they share on Thayer Street.

A postal inspector noticed some packages addressed to Tietsort from a jewelry company.

That jewelry business is a known front for bath salts distribution.

Tietsort told investigators she ordered the jewelry, not the bath salts.

But she later admitted to ordering drugs from the company three times.

She also admitted to giving bath salts to another woman.

Raznick told investigators he smoked bath salts three weeks ago.

He also told them he knew his mother was buying bath salts online.

Tietsort is out on a $5,000 signature bond.

Raznick is out on a $2,500 signature bond.

Tietsort will be back in court next week.

Raznick will be in court at the end of March.

Gov. Walker warns Potawatomi it could lose gamesSubmitted: 08/29/2014

MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker's administration has warned the Forest County Potawatomi tribe that it could lose about 2,000 slot machines if it succeeds in withholding its $25 million annual payment to the state.

The Potawatomi say they're withholding the money because the state may end up owing the tribe money if Walker approves the Menominee tribe's proposed Kenosha casino. The Potawatomi fear a Kenosha casino would significantly cut into their Milwaukee casino profits.
