CRANDON -
(Suspects identified clockwise, beginning with upper-left: Robert Daniels, Andrew Phillips, Richard Harris, Geraldine Dubray, Allyssa Wamego, Tammy Mann)

A report of a noisy house party and fight near Crandon led to six drug-related arrests earlier this month.  Officers eventually found heroin, cocaine, and guns along with other drug items inside, but getting there took some extra work.

According to a release from the Forest County Sheriff's Office, police responded to a home at 7840 Love Knot Lane in the Town of Lincoln, which is east of Crandon, on March 7 around 7:15 p.m.


Officers found a man trying to jump out of a window when they arrived. The man refused commands to comply and went back inside. Police then found a woman hiding in a basement window well.

The homeowner, Robert Daniels, told police he was the only person home at the time. Deputies went inside the home and found four other people hiding inside, along with the woman in the window well, later identified as Tammy Mann, 23, of Lac du Flambeau.  During those arrests, police noticed white powder substance and drug items.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for the home with help from the district attorney's office. Around 11 p.m. that same night, officers went inside the home and found heroin, cocaine, marijuana, prescription pills, guns, digital scales, and other drug-related items.

Police arrested Daniels, Mann, Andrew Phillips, 44, of Laona, Richard Harris, 43, of Wabeno, Allyssa Wamego, 26, of Wabeno, and Geraldine Dubray, 45, of Fargo, North Dakota.

All six were booked into the Forest County Jail, but they have not yet been charged in the case.

"I am aware that all individuals will be charged in some capacity but it is unclear as to what extent each was involved at this time," Forest County DA Chuck Simono told news media in a follow up email.

Simono expects to file charges by Friday afternoon.

MADISON - A new report puts Wisconsin among the states with the largest decline in higher education spending per student between 2013 and 2018.

The analysis by the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association shows that Wisconsin's higher education funding per student fell by more than 8% during that period. Only Mississippi, West Virginia and Oklahoma saw larger declines.

Wisconsin Public Radio reports that Wisconsin is bucking the national trend. The United States overall saw a more than 15% increase in state spending per student between 2013 and 2018.

The group's senior policy analyst, Sophia Laderman, says Wisconsin spent about $1,500 less per student last year than the national average of $7,853.

MADISON - A new report says Wisconsin has seen a steep decline in net migration of families with children who could help replace the state's aging workforce.

The Wisconsin Counties Association's research arm, Forward Analytics, recently released a study that raises concerns about migration patterns. The report says Wisconsin doesn't have enough young people to take over jobs from retiring baby boomers in the coming 10 to 15 years.

Wisconsin Public Radio reports that migration of children dropped below 10,000 from 2010 to 2015. Before 2010, Wisconsin added 40,000 children from outside the state over a five-year period.

Wisconsin's birthrate has also declined to its lowest in four decades.

RHINELANDER - Guitar strings lose their rich sound whether they're being played or just sitting in an attic. The Northland Music Center gave their customers a fresh set Saturday for free to celebrate Earth Day a little early. 

Co-owner Will Roffers had a busy Saturday morning.

"I would say we're probably in the twenties at this point an hour and a half in," said Roffers working on a guitar inside Northland Music Center in Rhinelander.

He and his co-workers have been re-stringing guitars and recycling the old strings.

It's part of string company D'Addario's international effort to keep highly-recyclable metal guitar strings out of the landfill. 

"The amount of strings that go in the garbage is phenomenal so this is really taking a dent out of that," said Roffers.

RHINELANDER - Whether you like a fruity wine, a hoppy beer, or something a little different, you were likely able to find it at the ninth annual Hodag Hops & Vines event in Rhinelander Saturday. The event brings in wineries and microbreweries from around Wisconsin and nearby states.

"There's always a new beer or wine. [People] can come and check out what they might have for their new summer flavor," said Sackett.

MADISON -  The Wisconsin Supreme Court will take over the appeal in a second lawsuit challenging Republican-backed laws passed in a lame-duck session to restrict the powers of the newly elected Democratic governor and attorney general.

The decision Friday bypasses the state Appeals Court in the case involving the Service Employees International Union Local 1 and other unions. They're arguing the laws passed last year to limit some of the powers of Gov. Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul violate constitutional separation of powers between the legislative and executive branches.

The State Journal reports the conservative-led court said Friday the state's interests "would be best served by the appeal bypassing the court of appeals."
