Man sentenced to 25 years in robbery heart attack death Submitted: 11/17/2018
MADISON - A man whose armed robbery of a Madison Culver's restaurant led to a bystander's fatal heart attack has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Nicholas Ivy and Xavier Fleming pleaded guilty in August to causing the death of 56-year-old Chris Kneubuehl, of Twin Lakes, during the robbery last year.

Judge Jill Karofsky said at Ivy's sentencing Friday that he caused Kneubuehl's death by refusing to let others call for help when the victim fell ill.

Kneubuehl was in a crew that was replacing a tile floor when the robbers arrived. He agreed to cut open the safe with a grinder to try to end the incident, then suffered a heart attack that a medical examiner said he could have survived with prompt medical attention.

Fleming's sentencing is Dec. 17.

RHINELANDER - The day before gun deer season sends dozens of people into Mel's Trading Post in Rhinelander.

Over the past several decades, store owner Mitch Mode has seen one particular group of customers drop off: kids.

"When I grew up, hunting was the only game in town," Mode said. "Now you've got a lot of youth sport activities, you've got a lot of things going on in a young person's life."

Mentored gun deer license sales have dropped from nearly 15,000 last year to under 13,000 this year with the bulk of license sales over.

That means fewer kids under 11 are going out with their parents.

RHINELANDER -
It doesn't matter if you plan to travel through the air or on the roads for Thanksgiving... you're bound to see a lot more traffic than usual. The Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport hopes to make that traffic flow smoothly.

Airport Director Matthew Leitner wants people to get to the airport an hour and 15 minutes before takeoff. TSA screening will begin forty-five minutes prior to take-off. The same liquid carry-on rules from years ago still apply.

"Things go very smoothly here typically, it's a beautiful airport, we have a lot of amenities, we've got a great crew, airline, TSA and airport."

"We're dealing with aircraft that are 50 seats so typically there aren't a lot of congestion with passengers cues and things of that nature which is very nice. That is a very decided advantage for our airport." says Airport Director Matthew Leitner.

CRANDON - Jackie Shepherd hopes some of the money in deer hunters' pockets this weekend goes into her red kettle.

Shepherd coordinates Salvation Army bell ringing in Crandon.

Until she started setting up at Schaefer's grocery store six or seven years ago, no one rang bells in Crandon. She stays motivated by thinking of the people the Salvation Army helps.

"A woman came to me and said, 'If it hadn't been for the Salvation Army, my children wouldn't have Christmas.' She put a $20 bill into my bucket, and from then on, I've been hooked on the Salvation Army," Shepherd said.
