Shawano water rate hike takes effect Saturday

Shawano Water and Sewer Utility residential customers will soon pay 13 percent, or about $2.85 per month, more for water, according to an order issued Monday by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.

Residential customers currently paying $22 monthly for 3,750 gallons of water will pay $24.85 for the same amount of water when the new rates take effect Saturday, according to Nancy Schauer, financial manager for Shawano utilities.

The $24.85 includes the $8.50 monthly meter charge applicable to most residential customers and the public fire protection charge, which reimburses the utility for hydrant maintenance and other firefighting costs the utility incurs.

The utility sought an overall 22 percent rate increase in the application it filed in July. However, that was based on the 6.5 percent rate of return on the value of the utility’s infrastructure the PSC granted in 2007, the last time the city increased water rates, Schauer said.

3 charged after Bowler search warrant

Three Bowler men are facing various felony charges after authorities executed a search warrant at their residence last week.

The search warrant followed an undercover operation involving one of the men conducted by Stockbridge-Munsee Police and Shawano County sheriff’s deputies last summer.

DC Walker Welch, 36, is accused of selling prescription drugs to a confidential informant on two occasions in July and once in August, according to the criminal complaint.

He was arrested and charged after authorities executed the search warrant Feb. 17 at the residence he shares with two other family members.

Welch is charged with delivery of narcotics, which carries a maximum possible penalty of 15 years in prison and a $50,000 fine, and two counts of possession with intent to deliver a prescription drug, which carries a maximum six years and a $10,000 fine.

With casino nixed, Menominee tribe considers growing marijuana

If the Menominee tribe can’t open a casino in Kenosha, maybe it’ll grow marijuana instead.

Tribal legislator Craig Corn opened the door Friday to growing marijuana on tribe’s impoverished reservation near Shawano.

The question of tribes entering the marijuana business has been smoldering since last year, when the U.S. Department of Justice told federal prosecutors not to prevent tribes from growing or selling pot on their reservations, even in states such as Wisconsin that ban it.

Indian law experts say the Justice Department memo left many questions unanswered.

Still, interest has grown since Gov. Scott Walker last month rejected the tribe’s proposal for an off-reservation in Kenosha.

In a tweet Corn sent out Friday, the former tribal chairman said: “Now we embark on a new economic endeavor, it is time to progress forward. We are gonna fast track a effort to legalize marijuana.”

Clintonville council OKs investigation of mayor

The Clintonville Common Council recently voted unanimously to hire a law firm to investigate a resident’s complaint filed against Mayor Judith Magee.

Magee declined to comment on the investigation or the council’s vote.

Trica Rose, publisher of the Clintonville Chronicle, filed the complaint accusing Magee of misconduct in office, abuse of power, theft of property, willfully destroying public property, releasing confidential information and concealing a crime.

Rose ran unsuccessfully against Magee in the April mayoral election. Rose’s husband, Greg, was removed from office as a District 4 alderman following a recall election — the first in city history — in November.

Tracks in snow lead to domestic abuse suspect

A domestic violence suspect located after his tracks were spotted in the snow is due in court Monday on a felony charge of strangulation and suffocation.

David A. Hohensee, 30, of rural Shawano, was the subject of a police search after a disturbance in the town of Richmond Feb. 13.

A woman who was the victim of the alleged incident fled the residence where it took place and called Shawano County authorities from a nearby tavern, according to the criminal complaint.

The complaint alleges Hohensee pinned his forearm against the woman’s throat during the incident, then broke her cell phone and threw it at her when she tried to call 911.

Hohensee was not located during an initial search of the residence, but authorities were called again a short time later and were told Hohensee was at the house. The complaint states the victim’s mother told authorities that Hohensee had come down the stairs from the upstairs where he had apparently been hiding.
