Big rally, bigger letdown

CHICAGO (AP) One strike away from a five-run victory, the Milwaukee Brewers couldn't finish off the Cubs.

Milwaukee's colossal ninth-inning collapse Wednesday featured two errors and four walks and produced the latest zany chapter in the Brewers' always-eventful rivalry with the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs tied the game with five unearned runs in the ninth and then won it 9-8 on Willie Greene's two-out single in the 11th.

Winter appointed to PFC

Leader Reporter

A Shawano attorney is the newest member of the Police and Fire Commission.

The appointment of David R. Winter, 524 Fairview Way, was approved by the Shawano Common Council Wednesday. He will succeed Ken Hagen for a five-year term ending January 31, 2005.

Mayor Russ Schmidt said he appointed Winter, 48, to the PFC because he always thought it would be a good idea to have an attorney on the commission, not to offer legal advice, but to know the limits of the law and protect the city's rights.

Investigators Wednesday morning continued to search through the burned out wreckage of the home of Kenneth Trepanier of 1379 S. Andrews St., Shawano. The 62-year-old Trepanier was found dead in the sun porch area of his house in which fire investigators were centering their search for the blaze's cause. The front of the home showed little damage, but looking at the rear of the home from Jesse Court, where this picture was taken from, shows just how severe the damage was to the back portion.
