After discussing matters for about an hour and a half in closed session, the PFC agreed unanimously to hire an interim chief for the Shawano Police Department.

Mayor Russ Schmidt has been serving as the chief of police since the Wisconsin State Court of Appeals last month upheld the settlement agreement with then Chief Norm Jahn, which required him to resign. Capt. Scott Otto is the next in command.

The Brewers, not Junior, hit the homers and Milwaukee's pitchers did another impressive job of avoiding disaster Wednesday night, setting up an 8-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Kevin Barker, Tyler Houston and Geoff Jenkins each homered and seven different Brewers scored as Milwaukee improved to 2-0 under first-year manager Davey Lopes.
