Stroebel says intolerance shows Liebham, Grothman don’t belong in Washington

    Two of the four Republican candidates vying to be the next representative for the 6th Congressional District refused to participated in a candidate forum held Monday by the Ozaukee County League of Women Voters at Milwaukee Area Technical College in Mequon.

    The two most conservative candidates — Glenn Grothman of West Bend and Joe Liebham of Sheboygan — initially said they did not commit to the forum, then said they would not participate because the League of Women Voters challenged the state’s voter ID law.

    That law was recently struck down by the federal court as being unconstitutional. Judge Lynn Adelman stated the law will keep more legitimate ballots than fraudulent votes from being cast.

    Grothman’s and Liebham’s absence opened the door for the other two candidates — Duey Stroebel of Saukville and Tom Denow of Oshkosh — to criticize career politicians, saying new people are needed to break the gridlock in Washington.

DA, cops target Milwaukee dealers who sell to Ozaukee buyers just across county line

    A 33-year-old Milwaukee man who allegedly sold drugs to an undercover sheriff’s deputy in Glendale has been charged — in Ozaukee County — with conspiring to deal heroin.

    Why Ozaukee County? Because law enforcement officers and prosecutors here are taking their fight against heroin and other drugs across the border.

    Three felony charges of conspiracy to manufacture/deliver heroin against Antonio Green Sr., who according to court records is a felon who lives on North 39th Street in Milwaukee, are the result of the latest tactic Ozaukee County is using in its campaign against drug dealers who have become too savvy to pedal their product on Ozaukee soil but nonetheless are still willing to supply local distributors.

    “We’re trying something new because Lord knows what we’ve been doing hasn’t solved the problem,” Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol said. “You’ll be seeing more of these cases in the future because we realize the other side of the border is just a short drive away, and what we’ve seen recently is a concerted effort by drug dealers to consummate their deals on the other side of the border.”

 
Mother who subjected daughter to sex assault gets 221/2 years PDF Print E-mail

Fredonia woman’s plea for leniency rejected by judge who calls crimes committed against 12-year-old repulsive

The lawyer representing a Fredonia woman who subjected her 12-year-old daughter to a sexual assault at the hands of her husband didn’t try to explain his client’s crimes but argued last week that she certainly didn’t deserve the 20-year prison sentence recommended by Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol.

    “I think this is a prison case, but attorney Gerol gives short shrift to the type of individual she was at the time,” said William Mayer, the woman’s attorney, adding that she suffered a “verbal and mental beat-down” at the hands of her husband and exhibited symptoms of domestic abuse. A sentence of 7-1/2 years in prison would be more appropriate, he said.


    Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams disagreed.


    “This is one of those cases that, quite frankly, is repulsive,” Williams said. “Repulsive is the only way to describe it.”


    Williams sentenced the woman, who Ozaukee Press is not naming to protect the victim, to 22-1/2 years in prison followed by 15 years of extended supervision.


    “A person gives birth to a child and society expects that person to provide shelter, basic necessities, food, education, love and protection,” the judge said. “You might have provided some of those things, but your actions show you didn’t provide the love or the protection.”


    Instead, the woman “sat on the bed while her husband sexually assaulted her 12-year-old daughter and didn’t do a thing,” Williams said.


    The woman, 37, pleaded no contest in May to felony crimes of failure to protect a child from sexual assault, being party to the crime of first-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 13 and child enticement-sexual contact.


    A week earlier, Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Malloy sentenced the woman’s 45-year-old husband to 35 years in prison followed by 20 years of extended supervision for sexually assaulting his stepdaughter, who was “served up” to him by her mother as some sort of perverse birthday gift, Gerol said.


    “This was a 12-year-old girl,” Gerol said. “She should never have been exposed to something like this.”


    A jury deliberated less than two hours in February before finding the man guilty  of first-degree sexual assault of a child and incest with a child by a stepparent. Gerol called the trial remarkable not only because of the testimony provided by the young victim but because her mother also testified against her husband.


    During the trial, the girl told jurors that on April 1, 2013 — her stepfather’s 44th birthday — her mother led her into the master bedroom of the family’s Fredonia apartment, where her stepfather was waiting.


    “She (her mother) said, ‘We’re going to give your daddy a special birthday gift,’” the girl, now 13, told jurors. “I said, ‘I don’t want to, mommy,’ but she said, ‘Do this just for once.’”

Federal funding would help with purchase if group can negotiate deal

    The Ozaukee Washington Land Trust has been awarded $300,000 in federal funding to purchase, restore and preserve more than 600 acres along Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River in Ozaukee and Washington counties, including parcels in the City of Port Washington and Town of Grafton.

    Land Trust Executive Director Shawn Graff declined to discuss specific details of the two parcels or comment on whether they are part of the former VK Development holdings on Port’s far south side because of ongoing negotiations, but he said the properties are on and near the lakefront and important to the organization’s efforts to preserve migratory bird habitat.

    The grant, which is being awarded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under its Great Lakes Watershed Habitat and Species Restoration Initiative Grants Program using funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, is intended to fund the preservation of migratory bird habitat, which is one of the priorities of the Land Trust.

Some Port officials reject Coal Dock Parkway, say street name should recognize We Energies contribution

    What should the road running through Coal Dock Park be called?

    Port Washington aldermen debated that subject Tuesday night, but they didn’t come to a resolution before their meeting ended.

    The Coal Dock Committee suggested the road should be called Coal Dock Parkway, but that recommendation didn’t sit well with all the aldermen.

    “The name’s horrible,” Ald. Dave Larson said. “It’s not very imaginative. It’s not very creative.”

    He didn’t like it when the city named the park Coal Dock Park, Larson added, noting it’s too similar to Kolbach Park on the city’s north side.

    He suggested the city call the road Energy Way.

    “I like the idea of tying energy into it,” Larson said.

    But Ald. Kevin Rudser asked, “Is that because there’s a power plant there?”

    The name would pay homage to the fact We Energies essentially donated the land for the park, Larson said.
