Man stalked terminally ill teenager
WAUKESHA - Police believe a 30 year old man stalked a terminally ill 13 year old in Waukesha.

Prosecutors say Shannon Bailey found the girl on a website that families use to update friends on the medical conditions of loved ones.

Bailey told investigators he sold all his possessions in West Virginia so he could move to Wisconsin to be near her.

He also sent Facebook messages to the girl's mother saying he needed to see the girl and be with her.

Bailey told police he has no sexual desire for the girl.

He just wanted to befriend her and help her as she waits for a liver transplant.

He faces four charges, one of them is stalking.

RHINELANDER - Chilly fall weather might make you want to curl up next to your space heater or fire place, but those heating sources bring some fire risks with them.

You should never leave space heaters unattended.

That includes when you sleep.

Pets or small children can tip over the unit and start a fire.

This is probably the first time the furnace is on since winter, so you will want to change the filter and check your chimneys, too.

"They've been sitting all summer. You want to make sure those get cleaned. We see a lot of chimney fire this time of year," says firefighter Justin Feaker.

The Rhinelander Fire Department reminds people of daylight saving time coming up on November 5th.

That is a good time to check out smoke alarms.
