  • 11/05/18--01:49: Training Camp For Road Crews
  • BROWN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - With winter's approach comes preparation for the storms to come, and Brown County Public Works Operations Manager Mike Piacenti tells FOX 11 they're already busy preparing for the first flakes.

    "It can take eight to ten weeks to get our entire fleet ready."

    Plows installed onto trucks, road salt stored and at the ready, and the latest way to melt hitting the roads: a homemade brine.

    "The idea of putting brine with the salt," Piacenti told us, "is that it will activate the salt faster, clean the roads, and use a lot less salt."

    Unlike road salt, they are not going to run out brine anytime soon thanks to numerous 6,500-gallon storage tanks ready to go for the winter season.

    "Right now though, Wisconsin is the second-leading user of road salt in the United States, only behind New York."

    So using less salt will be helpful to our environment.

    "We can reduce salt usage by 20 to 30 percent," said Brown County Public Works Director Paul Fontecchio.

    "Because we are using less salt, less salt gets into the lakes and waterways."

    So they are out learning the routes now, to be ready for the first storm, and to get drivers around them used to seeing them back on the roads.

    "You really want to just give us the room to get over, to do what we have to do -- to do our jobs."

    Because storms like last April's blizzard can have them working round the clock.

    "We had trucks that didn't shut off for a week straight," Fontecchio said. "As soon as a guy gets out, a guy gets in it, and that truck keeps going."

    But Piacenti says it's not always the big storms that cause the most concern.

    "That one-inch snowstorm that goes for eight hours, because it's dropping a little bit of snow down there, making it slippery. People think 'it's only an inch, I can drive 70 miles per hour on it' when actually they can't."

    And while they try to keep the roads as clear as possible, persistent precipitation can cause problems.

    "It takes an hour and a half or two hours to make a circuit," says Fontecchio,

    "So if I plow this piece of Highway 41 right now, it's going to be an hour and a half until I get back to it. When it's snowing at two inches per hour, there's going to be snow on the road. You do the best you can with the resources you have."

    So give them space, and let them help keep travelers safe.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - Rain or shine, the midterm election is just a day away.

    Republicans and Democrats, in Brown County, spent the weekend trying to sway voters.

    “A huge 'get out the vote' effort,” Kelly Ruh, the Republican Party of Brown County Co-Chairperson, called it.

    With just a couple more chances they couldn't let a little rain- or Daylight Saving Time- stand in their way.

    “Now it's going to get darker an hour earlier, we even have flashlights to help people if they're still out canvassing and knocking on doors once it gets dark,” said Mary Ginnebaugh, Chairperson for the Democratic Party of Brown County.

    Volunteers on both sides spread their message in multiple ways.

    “We are calling to make sure people have voted and that they have a plan to vote,” said Ginnebaugh.

    And by heading door to door.

    “Our goal is to knock 15 thousand doors in Brown County in these four days,” said Ginnebaugh. “It’s a big number.”

    Republicans were also going door to door and stuffing mailboxes.

    “The key for us is personal voter contact so we have a lot of people knocking on doors,” said Ruh.

    The light at the end of the campaign trail is finally in sight. Now, it's just last-minute questions.

    “Really in Brown County the 'get out and vote' effort started at the last election,” said Ruh.

    “Where do they vote? …Pass out info on candidates, point them to, if they need a ride to the poll, so we’re here to assist the voter.”

    With record absentee voter turnout in Green Bay and in cities across the country, there are still more people to get to the polls.

    “Making sure they understand what is at stake,” said Ginnebaugh.

    Just one more day to see if their efforts will prove successful.

    STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - A $1 million can bond has been set for a Michigan man accused of killing his wife in 1975 in Door County.

    He is charged in the murder of his wife, Carol Jean, although her body has never been found.

  • 11/05/18--07:41: Garage Fires Keep Crews Busy
  • APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Appleton firefighters had a busy Monday morning as they battled two detached garage fires.

    The first happened shortly after midnight in the 100 block of E. Harris St.

    Power lines came down at the scene. The garage and the vehicle inside are total losses.

    The second garage fire was reported about 90 minutes later, just a few blocks away, in the 700 block of N. Clark Street.

    When firefighters arrived, the garage was fully engulfed.

    The garage and everything inside, including motorcycles, a snowblower, and generator were destroyed.

    No injuries were reported.

    The causes of both fires are being investigated.

  • 11/05/18--09:48: Election Day Reminders
  • GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - With an important mid-term election, local officials are reminding voters of things to remember for a quick and easy experience.

    Significant seats on the ballot have election workers expecting big crowds and Sandy Juno, the Brown County Clerk, says the process will go more smoothly if people bring the correct documentation.

    "People who aren't registered can register at the polls," explains Juno. "They just need to make sure that they bring proof of residency."

    That proof of residency could include a state driver's license or a utility bill that includes a current address.

    "In order to get a ballot they would need to have an acceptable form of photo I.D.," says Juno. "Probably the most common ones would be if you have a state driver's license, or an I.D. card, or passport."

    Those working the election are expecting a big turnout with state seats such as governor and attorney general up for grabs and a number of local positions also on the ballot. Another reason for expecting big numbers is that they haven't seen signs that would point to an increase in early voting.

    "From the county clerk's office, we haven't seen a huge increase in the absentee voting," she says. "Ours is based upon the number of ballots that are ordered."

    And with a busy day expected, there is a high importance placed on meeting those demands, while keeping ballots secure.

    "One thing we have in Brown County is that we print ballots in-house," explains Juno. "Should some of the clerks be running low on ballot stock, we can print additional ballots to make sure that everyone gets one."

    And with those many ballots being cast, they can start to pile up.

    "Throughout the day if the bins get full, several of the poll workers will remove the ballots from the bin and secure them in ballot boxes," says Juno. "That following the end of the night gets transported back to the municipality."

    The polls are open until 8 PM and WTAQ will have live coverage of the election throughout the evening.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Northeast Wisconsin Technical College is asserting that when they stopped a student from distributing religious-themed Valentine's cards on campus they did not violate her Constitutional rights.

    Following the incident earlier this year, Polly Olson filed a federal lawsuit claiming that she was not being disruptive and was not a threat.

    NWTC asked for the suit to be dismissed in their formal response that was filed with the court on Friday.

    No hearings have been set in the case.

    APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - The first weekend of driving the new diverging diamond interchange in Appleton was a success as no crashes were reported by Appleton Police.

    The first such interchange in the area opened on Saturday morning at the interchange at Highway 441 and Oneida Street.

    Police also say that no citations were issued in the area this past weekend. 

    According to Captain Todd Freeman, police could deploy extra patrols in the area if problems do develop.

    MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court heard arguments regarding whether a Sister Bay condo association will be allowed to sue the village about noise from the municipal band shell on Monday.

    The Yacht Club at Sister Bay Condominium Association is claiming the noise constitutes a public nuisance and has sued the village.

    The high court is examining if the lawsuit was filed in a timely manner and should be allowed to continue, not the merits of the noise complaint.

    Concert performances began in August of 2014 after the pavilion was built in 2013. The condo association filed suit to stop the performances in March of 2016. The court ruled that the condo association didn't provide notice within the 120-day window from when the nuisance began, which the condo association appealed claiming that they filed within 120-days of the most recent concert.

    A ruling from the Wisconsin Supreme Court will be released in a few months.

  • 11/05/18--13:15: Next Concert To Be Discussed
  • ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - A special meeting of The Green Bay-Brown County Professional Football Stadium District has been scheduled for Tuesday.

    The group is responsible for administering Lambeau Field sales tax and offering grants which support tourism activity.

    The agenda item for the closed session on Tuesday is for negotiation strategy regarding possible support of an event at Lambeau Field through District Special Events and Economic Development Fund and/or Ticket Tax.

    There is speculation that this could be for a concert in 2019 at the field, but the Packers have made no announcement at this time.

    OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - The first man charged by evidence from old sexual assault kit tests has a trial date set. 

    30-year-old Aaron Heiden of Eau Claire is charged in the 2008 sexual assault of a Fox Crossing woman. 

    The sexual assault kit testing was done nearly a decade after the crime and the DNA profile of the suspect was put in a database and led to a match.

    Officials say the two met a bar and eventually ended up at the woman's home where the sexual assault occurred, according to the complaint.

  • 11/05/18--17:45: Bond Set For YouTube Threat
  • GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A man accused of threatening a Green Bay Police officer has a cash bond of $50,000.

    33-year-old Elliot Wilber posted a video on YouTube in which he threatened the life and safety of a Green Bay Police officer who was involved in the shooting of Jonathan Tubby last month at the Brown County Jail.

    In court Monday, Wilber said he wants to find an attorney from out of state.

    DE PERE, WI (WTAQ) - On the night before the election Governor Scott Walker was in De Pere making one last effort to rally support amongst voters. 

    Amerilux International in De Pere was the final stop on the Governor's statewide tour as he took the opportunity to highlight Wisconsin's thriving workforce and dispel, what he called, slanderous claims made by opponent Tony Evers about him.

    He thinks those negative claims are a big reason why polls have the race neck-and-neck.

    "Unfortunately it shows you just how effective attack ads that repeat the same lie over and over again [are]," says Walker.

    At the top of the list of false claims, according to Walker, is the notion that he won't cover pre-existing conditions.

    "I think the biggest thing keeping us from a sizeable win, right now, has been the big lie about pre-existing conditions," he says. "We will always, always, cover people with pre-existing conditions in this state."

    According to him, that's a claim that his opponent can't make.

    "My message to Tony Evers is he should be ashamed of himself for what he has done to people facing serious diseases and ailments in this state," says Walker. "They should never have to worry about coverage."

    That isn't the only fundamental difference between himself and Evers though, according to Walker.

    "Tony Evers plan would be higher property, higher income, and higher gas taxes, and that would cost us jobs," he says. "We don't want to go back to those days, we want to keep moving Wisconsin forward."

    And according to Walker, that's exactly what the state workforce has been doing while he's been in office.

    "It's all about educating and training the workforce, it's why we put more actual dollars into our schools than ever before," says Walker. "It's why we nearly tripled the youth apprenticeships."

    Walker highlighted recent statistics to showcase the state's strong workforce.

    "In 2018, there are more people employed in the state of Wisconsin than ever before in the history of this state," he says. "In fact, we've had eight months in a row of record unemployment."

    Come Tuesday morning where will the Governor be? Well, that's a personal tradition.

    "We'll be at Kroll's West where every election day I get deep-fried cheese curds."

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Nation-Wide Vigil and Service Project in honor of the Girl Scouts who died Saturday in Chippewa Falls was started in Green Bay.

    Girl Scouts from all around the country will join for a moment of silence Saturday to remember the three girl scouts and a mother killed by an impaired driver while doing roadwork for a service project.

    "I was getting tons of messages from parents who were saying we really need to do something for these people."

    Elizabeth Steffel, a Troop Leader in Green Bay says it was an activity that they were going to do locally, and it spread fast.

    "I was getting requests from people all around the county asking to join in and it soon became the beast that it is where I have over 4,000 people asking to be in this."

    The event has turned international as Troops in Canada and Italy are also participating.

    "All I could think about is if that would have happened to my troops or my daughter, how alone and scary that would be."

    In Green Bay, a vigil will be held at the Brown County Courthouse at 3 pm on Saturday.

    Steffel says it is a way to let the families know that people are thinking of them and to teach girl scouts a life-changing lesson.

    "There are Girl Scouts who are in pain and we need to help them somehow."

    Steffel says they are also turning this into an educational experience.

    "A leader from a different troop had the idea of making a badge or a patch."

    Steffel says they are creating a badge that girls will earn for doing service projects in honor of the girls killed.

    Steffel says it is a way to let the families know that people are thinking of them and to teach girl scouts a life-changing lesson on the importance of helping those in need.

    "We just want to help those girls, we just want to help those girls families, that is all we care about."

    She says while it is the driver that is to blame for making a decision to drive impaired, it also goes to show that every decision has a consequence.

    All proceeds from the badges will be given to the families. 

    This badge fundraiser for the families was organized by Girl Scout Troop 4029 in Green Bay.

    All Proceeds will be sent to a bank account that was set up for the families.CCF Bank2727 Commercial BoulevardLake Hallie, WI 54729And checks were written to GS troop 3055 Benefit

    On Saturday, Mayor Jim Schmitt will be offering words of love and support to the families affected by this tragedy. 

    The Girl Scouts will be collecting canned food items for Paul's Pantry.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A weekend roadside cleanup tragedy in Wisconsin with a group of girl scouts and and a mother has area law enforcement reminding organizations to plan projects carefully.

    What happened could not have been predicted.

    The Girl Scouts were far enough away from the road and wearing proper attire for the job.

    Even though the fault is believed to lie with the driver the vehicle, Brown County Sheriff Captain Jody Lemmens says they urge organizations to work with law enforcement before going out to do the work roadside.

    "There are roads that are maybe a little more safe for pedestrian traffic."

    Lemmens says you can never be too cautious when it comes to people driving.

    "The interstates you have multiple lanes traveling at a high rate of speed. We would be a little reluctant to have especially younger children out on those roadways."

    Even though an accident can happen anywhere, Lemmens says they are willing to recommend areas with better visibility that has less curves and hills to deal with.

    She says there are roads that may be a little more safe for pedestrian traffic and says organizations can contact them to learn of areas that may have less curves and hills for drivers to deal with.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - The penalties are going down in Green Bay for a person caught with an ounce of pot or less.

    After discussing the possibility for about two months, Green Bay's city council voted to lower the maximum possible fine for pot possession from $1,000 to $500.

    “That number came by with a lot of hands, talked to the police staff, judge, community,” said Randy Scannell, the Green Bay alderman who proposed a change to the current ordinance.

    Besides dropping the fine, the new ordinance also no longer requires the referral of a criminal charge for repeat offenders. Community service can also be substituted or paired with a fine for the punishment.

    Green Bay alderman Andy Nicholson dug in his heels in opposition.

    “It's an illegal substance. If it's legal, that's a different story, but it's illegal. I can't comprehend this.”

    “We know it's illegal. That's not the issue,” said Brian Johnson, a Green Bay alderman.

    “The issue is whether the penalty fits the crime. Speeding is illegal. We don't give out $1,000 penalties for speeding.”

    Only two members of the public spoke on the issue. One asking the council to drop the fine completely.

    “The MS Society supports a patient's right to use cannabis in legal states,” said Wendy Coriell of Green Bay.

    “Since we don't have one of those yet, it's up to the Green Bay City Council to protect the people like me from suffering negative consequences for trying to reduce our suffering.”

    One thing the council took out of the original proposal was to have the maximum fine only be $250 if someone was caught with pot in their private home. Instead, no matter, where you are it will be up to a $500 fine.

    The measure passed on an 8 to 4 vote.

    The new ordinance is expected to take effect before the end of the year.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - For months the state Department of Veteran Affairs has worked to expand services for military veterans living here in Northeast Wisconsin.

    Monday, it finally unveiled one of its new programs.

    With more veteran services available for those here in Wisconsin, veterans like Jeff Pemberton are able to get the help they need.

    "Sometimes people have problems with employment or substance abuse issues and they find housing and employment difficult and even mental health issues where they need help and professional resources."

    In August, the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs was awarded a grant to expand the state's Veterans Housing and Recovery Program to Green Bay.

    Ken Grant works as a division administrator for the state's Department of Veteran Affairs.

    He tells FOX 11 the grant will provide mental health services, substance abuse treatment and temporary housing for a veteran in the area.

    "We have clinician to help them deal with mental health, PTSD and anxiety issues, like a lot of veterans face. And then we bring in the treatment programs and use our nonprofit organizations and be one big community to give the veterans what they need."

    Making sure veterans are in good mental and physical health is something Grant says is necessary to help find them jobs and get them back functioning in society.

    "Green Bay, like a lot of areas, have and right now employers want to hire veterans. So we partner with the local job center and they will come over and meet with the veteran to get them job ready."

    That's a service Pemberton says he looks forward to using when the program officially opens up at the end of November.

    For more information on the program or to submit an application, you can contact the director at (920)-391-4370.

    OCONTO, WI (WTAQ- WLUK) - A woman who was allegedly driving drunk when she and her boyfriend got into a physical fight -- causing the vehicle to cross into oncoming traffic, striking another car and killing the driver -- waived a preliminary hearing Monday and pleaded not guilty.

    26-year-old Kelly Crispin is charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle, and second-degree reckless homicide for the death of Cory Folts in the Sept. 11 crash in the town of Abrams.

    No trial date was set. She returns to court December 13th for a pre-trial conference.

    Her boyfriend, 31-year-old Eric Solomon, is charged with being party to homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle, second-degree reckless homicide, hit-and-run resulting in death, recklessly endangering safety and obstruction. He returns to court Thursday.

    In the criminal complaint:

    “Crispin told police she told Solomon that she did not want to date anymore as they were in a 'toxic relationship.' Crispin stated Solomon got upset and punched her in the right temple. Solomon then grabbed the steering wheel and jerked the wheel. Crispin said the next thing she knew they were heading straight for another vehicle on the other side of the highway and then the airbag hit her in the chest. Crispin stated she believed that Solomon’s intention was to kill her and him when he grabbed the steering wheel and jerked it.”

    The complaint goes on to say Solomon told police he did not remember striking Crispin or grabbing the wheel.

    And preliminary breath tests, which are not admissible in court, showed both had blood alcohol levels above the legal driving limit.

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ-WLUK) - Green Bay's city council has passed the city’s budget for next year.

    Staffing an ambulance at Fire Station 7, on the corner of Humboldt Road and Huron Road on the city’s far east side, was on the chopping block.

    However, the council agreed to shift money in the fire department's budget and take $156,000 from its reserve fund to keep the ambulance.

    Removing the ambulance was expected to increase response times by an average of two and a half minutes in that area, according to numbers Fire Chief David Litton shared last week.

    Overall, property taxes are going up. For a $150,000 home, the increase will be about $21.

    City leaders have blamed the increase on lost revenue sources and previous budgets being filled with one-time money sources, including excess Lambeau Field sales tax money.

    The Green Bay Packers have signed CB Will Redmond to the active roster from the practice squad, signed LB Brady Sheldon to the practice squad, placed WR Geronimo Allison on injured reserve and released S Jermaine Whitehead. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Tuesday.   Whitehead (5-11, 195), played in 19 games with two starts since joining the Packers in 2016, seeing action on special teams and defense. He was originally signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of Auburn in 2015. Whitehead spent most of his rookie season on the 49ers’ practice squad before being signed to the Baltimore Ravens’ active roster on Dec. 23, 2015, and was inactive for the final two games. He was waived by Baltimore on May 13, 2016, and signed with Green Bay a few days later.   Redmond, a 5-foot-11, 186-pound third-year player, was signed to the Packers’ practice squad on Sept. 11. He was originally selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round (No. 68 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State.   Sheldon, a 6-foot-5, 231-pound first-year player out of Ferris State, was originally signed by the Oakland Raiders as an undrafted free agent on July 14, 2017.
