Man accused of shooting his cat
MARATHON COUNTY - On Tuesday night, Patrick Wolf's cat peed on the rug.

Then, he took the cat into the garage and shot it.

That's what his wife told police.

They found the cat buried in a shoebox in the yard.

Wolf now faces felony charges in Marathon County.

His wife told police that he's a convicted felon because of a cocaine bust 30 years ago.

That means he legally can't have firearms, but police found three in his house.

Wolf was arrested, but later released on a two thousand dollar bond.

Wolf will be back in court September 4th.

MINOCQUA -
Schools across the Northwoods and the state received millions of dollars in grant money to make their buildings safer this year. But a huge safety risk happens before your children even get to their schools.

Children have been hurt and killed in crashes at bus stops across the country, and drivers in the area say it's a problem here, too.

During one Lakeland Area bus's last stops of the day, a car zoomed by on Highway 47, completely disregarding the bus's stop sign. Apparently that violation isn't uncommon. 

"As bus drivers in the United States, children are at danger every day," said Lakeland Area Bus Terminal Manager Kim Hazelett.

Hazelett was horrified when she heard three children in Indiana were killed after being hit by a car at their bus stop.

"It kind of hit a sore sport with me," said Hazelett.

RHINELANDER - Not many people like to drive in the winter. A vehicle break-down can add more to the headache. With snow already beginning to fall, auto shops are busy. People are bringing their vehicles in to have them checked and to be ready for the season. Some of the most common things people should have checked include the battery, windshield wipers, and windshield washer fluid. However, the most common issue that actually causes a car to have problems is actually with the heat itself.

"People start to have a no heat condition which could be related to a faulty thermostat; or also when you get a no heat condition, it could have been that the coolant is low and you never would have known that you didn't have heat during the warmer months so that would…could signify an internal engine problem or just an external leak," says James Maze, Owner of Maze Certified Auto Repair.
