Plea Agreement in 2021 Oneida County Homicide Case Ahead of Trial
Published on 08/15/2022 under News Just days before an Oneida County homicide trial was set to begin, a plea deal was reached and the case settled. That last minute plea hearing was called on Friday afternoon. Christopher Terrell Anderson was facing a single count of 1st degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of Hannah Miller last summer. At Friday's hearing, the 31 year old pleaded guilty. Last June, Miller's body was discovered along side a rural road outside Rhinelander. She was shot multiple times. Miller and Anderson had formally been involved in a relationship and shared a child. Anderson was quickly identified as a person of interest in the case. He fled the area and was located nearly two months later in Illinois. Anderson's trial was originally set to begin today, and motions hearings continued as recently as last week. With a plea agreement now in place, a sentencing hearing was scheduled for August 23. The homicide charge carries mandatory life in prison. The sentencing will determine whether Anderson can extended supervision at some point during his incarceration.

Thrilla on the Grilla Teams Dodge Rain Drops for Annual Cook-Off
Published on 08/15/2022 under News A little rain didn't stop a rib cook-off in downtown Tomahawk this weekend. The Tomahawk Lion's Club hosted their annual Thrilla on the Grilla rib competition on Saturday. The grill-masters competed to see who had the best ribs in town. While it was an overcast day with a continuous light rain, the teams made good use of tents to turn out hundreds of racks of mouthwatering ribs for the public to enjoy while also raising money for a good cause. Perhaps using their home-field advantage, it was the Tomahawk Main Street entry that swept the people's choice and the judge's awards. They beat out LP on both scorecards. Geiss Meats placed third from the judges, while the Symonds Family was third in the fan vote. In addition to the ribs, they also had a side category where Geiss Meats took first. Century 21 and LP followed in the category. Of course the event doubles as a fundraiser for the Tomahawk Lion's Club, and organizer Kevin Koth thanked all the teams and everyone who came out.

Milwaukee City Council Votes to Explore New Youth Corrections Site
Published on 08/15/2022 under News Milwaukee city leaders gave their blessing for the state to further explore a potential new youth prison in the city, which would ultimately lead to the closure of Lincoln Hills. Early last week, Governor Evers announced a possible site for the juvenile correctional facility in Milwaukee. For years, officials have sought to move the incarcerated youth closer to their homes, families and support networks. That means a location in southern Wisconsin where a majority of the Lincoln Hills population comes from. A bipartisan bill was passed by state leaders earlier this year which would provide $42 million for a project. The resolution requires support from whichever local community the facility would be located. With a potential site identified on Clifton Avenue in Milwaukee, the Common Council called a special meeting Friday. At that meeting the Council voted 11-1 to continue planning at this site. There are still a number of steps in what is expected to be a lengthy process. That includes public hearings, zoning changes, and formal project approval at both the local and state level. Once a new facility has been built and youth relocated, Lincoln Hills is expected to be re-purposed as an adult correctional facility.
