Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Four men have been cited for allegedly shooting paintball guns that looked like real assault rifles at a vehicle in Madison.

Police say they received a report Friday afternoon that two men were using assault rifles to shoot at a vehicle in front of them. Police later talked to four men, who said they were in a consensual paintball gun war with the other vehicle.

Police found three paintball rifles and a paintball handgun in the men's vehicle. A sergeant on the scene said one of the rifles was ``very realistic looking'' and resembled a camouflage AR rifle.

The men were cited with misdemeanor disorderly conduct while armed.

LAC DU FLAMBEAU - People die from heroin overdoses every day throughout the U.S., and it's a problem we see here in the Northwoods as well. 

That's why Lac Du Flambeau hosted it's first Overdose Awareness Day to help people learn more about drug addiction.

"Having lost my sister last year, and other families that lost loved ones like that, an awareness and education needs to be done in Indian Communities," said organizer Jeanne Wolfe. 
 
A special agent gave a presentation about heroin.

Afterwards the people at the event could talk about ways to prevent drug use in the community.

The event was also a way to deal with grief.

"Nothing has really been done to recognize or talk about our sorrow and the loss a person goes through when somebody dies unexpectedly like that," Wolfe said. 

Wolfe hopes to host the event again next year.

MANITOWISH WATERS - If you don't like getting your hands dirty you might want to avoid Manitowish Waters this weekend.

"Right away we're getting them nice and muddy and dirty and then they continue their jaunt for four miles," chamber director Sarah Pischer said.

Wednesday, workers created 12 obstacles -- some high in the air, some low to the ground -- for the fifth-annual Northwoods Bad Dash Mud Run.  Pischer says volunteers build new challenges for racers every year.

"We wouldn't be able to do things like this, we're not carpenters and we really appreciate all the help we've had in past years from all our volunteers," Pischer said.
