EAGLE RIVER - Eagle River Mayor Jeff Hyslop knows some of the streets, water lines, and sewers in his city have been on "life support" for years, as he puts it.

A multi-million-dollar construction project will help fix some of the areas in the worst trouble.

Eagle River replaced pipes, roads, and sidewalks on part of Division Street over the last two years.

"After decades, it was work that needed to be done," Hyslop said. "This project is going to continue on and finish Division Street all the way to Silver Lake Road."

EAGLE RIVER - A 40,000 square-foot addition designed to last 100 years opens up in less than two weeks.  A number of Vilas County offices are set to move into the courthouse expansion in Eagle River on August 24th and 25th.

Construction on the building started in August 2016.  The $11 million project stayed on budget and had just one week's worth of delays.  That was due to getting a proper air handling unit shipped and installed.

"There was a lot of common sense and practicality that went into the design, but we've also designed for the future," county clerk Dave Alleman said.  "We all certainly hope that there needs to be no more additions like this for Vilas County government."

MERRILL - In July, 24-year-old Cody Jenson told his ex-fiancee he planned to slit another man's throat, according to text messages read by police.

Later on, prosecutors believe Jenson stabbed that man 11 times near Tomahawk, sending the victim to the hospital.

On Monday, we heard from one of the officers investigating the case. Lincoln County Sheriff's Lt. Chad Collinsworth said Jenson went to the victim's Tomahawk-area home in a dispute over a woman, Jenson's ex-fiancee. Jenson sent text messages to his ex-fiancee that gave clues about what he might do.
