Man arrested after accidentally shooting through apartment wall while naked

July 30, 2012 4:37 p.m. | Apparently, practice doesn't make perfect as a 53-year-old Bayside man found out after accidentally shooting through the wall of his apartment in Bayside.

According to a Bayside police report:

The man was arrested for a misdemeanor charge of endangering safety by negligent use of a dangerous weapon after discharging a firearm inside his apartment which went through his wall into the next apartment in the 9100 block of North White Oak Lane at 4:20 p.m. July 22.

The man said he was sitting naked on his living room floor practicing loading and unloading his .45 caliber gun and pulling the trigger to "improve his muscle memory." He thought the gun was empty when he aimed at a picture on the wall in front of him and the gun discharged. His wife was sitting just six feet away from that picture. The bullet went through the wall into the next apartment where it hit a vase, skipped off the ceiling and ended up in another vase. That resident was within a few feet of the flying bullet.

The man said he felt "horrible and embarrassed."

Swimming water quality? There's an app for that

July 27, 2012 11:28 a.m. | An app released by Milwaukee Riverkeeper makes it easy to find a safe beach for swimming.

The Swim Guide uses water quality monitoring data from government authorities. Green marks indicate acceptable water quality, while red marks show where it is unsafe. It also enables users to get directions, view photos and report pollution immediately to Milwaukee Riverkeeper.

Milwaukee Riverkeeper wants to protect beachgoers from getting sick, and raise public awareness about pollution threatening our rights to swimmable waters.

The technology was developed by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and is now managed by Milwaukee Riverkeeper and other member groups of the Waterkeeper Alliance, a network of 200 water protection groups worldwide.

The app can be downloaded at milwaukeeriverkeeper.org/content/swim-guide.

Fox Point-Bayside district sets referendum wheels in motion

July 24, 2012 9:23 a.m. | Fox Point - In an effort to combat past and potential reductions to the district's revenue limit, the Fox Point-Bayside School Board set plans in motion Monday night which could ultimately bring a referendum to voters next spring to supplement the district's operational budget.

The proposed referendum would aim to provide between $500,000 and $600,000 annually to the district over a 10 year period, though School Board members advised the higher figure.

Fox Point-Bayside has seen an approximate $662,000 decrease in its revenue limit since the 2010-2011 school year, and has used its fund balance to cover operational costs. Officials said that, without the referendum money, the fund balance will run out and the district would have to reduce staffing or services to balance the budget.

"The education we provide will change dramatically if we don't find another source of revenue," said School Board President Michael Weiss.

Having received preliminary approval from the School Board, district administrative staff will return with a fleshed out referendum proposal for the board at its August meeting.

The 20-year-old Mequon woman was cited after her car struck the train on Mequon Road, just east of Fond du Lac Avenue at 10:10 a.m. July 18.

Mequon native recovering after being shot in theater

July 20, 2012 2:00 p.m. | Trying to keep his wits about him after being shot during a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," Mequon native Carey Rottman reached out to his sleeping Facebook friends from a hospital emergency room to ask where Batman was when he needed him.

Rottman and a friend were among 59 people injured by a gunman who hurled a gas canister in a crowded Denver-area movie theater and then opened fire during the early Friday morning showing of the new Batman movie. Twelve other moviegoers died.

"Shot in the leg at Batman. Where is he when you need him. Please pray for everyone here," Rottman, 27, typed from his cellphone to his Facebook page around 3 a.m. Mountain time.

An ambulance had whisked Rottman from the Aurora movie theater to a nearby hospital with a single gunshot wound to the left thigh.

Rottman's friend was shot in the arm and foot. He was taken to a different hospital, where he was recovering Friday. The friend, who plans to become a pastor, officiated at Rottman's outdoor wedding in Minnesota last month, when Rottman married his college sweetheart.

Lightning strike ignites Shorewood duplex

July 19, 2012 10:46 a.m. | Shorewood - Firefighters and police were dispatched to 3602 N Murray Avenue around 8:44 p.m. last night, quelling an attic fire which caused an estimated $300,000 in damage, according to a media release.

Fire investigators have concluded that the likely cause of the fire was a lightning strike from the severe storm system in the area at the time of the call. First responders found smoke coming from the roof and eaves of the duplex and upgraded the call to bring in additional companies, which fought the fire from two ladder trucks.

Fire, smoke, and water damage to the attic and third floor of the duplex is reportedly extensive.

Two firefighters were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, and have since been released. No civilian injuries were reported.

Bayside lawyer charged with $737,000 theft

July 19, 2012 7:28 a.m. | A disbarred  Bayside lawyer has been charged with embezzling more than $737,000 from a Milwaukee law firm where he used to work.

Brian Mularski, 37, is named in two counts, one covering a period of more than 20 months in 2006 and 2007, and a second covering a period in 2008 and 2009. Each is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. His first court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.

According to the criminal complaint, Mularski diverted payments from the law firm Eisenberg, Riley and Zimmerman intended for insurance companies into a U.S. Bank account he had created in the name of the Mularski Law Firm.

A firm manager learned of the problem when the companies contacted him while Mularski was on vacation. The manager found copies of canceled checks that appeared to have gone to and been endorsed by the insurance companies, but the companies said they never got them, and the endorsements were fake anyway.

Once confronted with the thefts, Mularski repaid the firm  $238,126. According to complaint, he used the stolen funds for "various personal and business expenses not related to the Eisenberg firm."

Whitefish Bay apartments win Plan Commission approval

July 19, 2012 7:00 a.m. | Mandel Group Inc's proposal to build 103 upscale apartments in Whitefish Bay has been recommended for approval by the village Plan Commission.

The development would be on parking lots behind the Fox Bay Cinema building, 302-334 E. Silver Spring Drive, and other neighboring retail properties, in three separate buildings. Two buildings would have three stories and another would be four stories.

The proposal will be the subject of a July 30 public hearing before the Village Board and Plan Commission. Mandel is seeking over $4 million in public financing to help pay for the $27 million project.

For more on the Plan Commission vote, check out an article at Whitefish Bay Now.com by reporter Michael Meidenbauer. And for more background on the public financing proposal, here's a link to my original May article..

The apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, would rent for about $1,300 to $2,400 a month. The project would target empty nesters looking to move out of their homes in Whitefish Bay and other North Shore communities.

No injuries reported in Shorewood basement fire

July 17, 2012 9:50 a.m. | Shorewood - Police and firefighters responded to a basement fire at 4502 N Wildwood Avenue in Shorewood around 5 a.m., reporting approximately $5,000 in damage and no injuries, according to a North Shore Fire Department media release.

Shorewood police arrived at the property to find fire and heavy smoke in the basement. Once firefighters arrived and confirmed that everyone had been evacuated, the fire was quickly contained and extinguished.

The apparent cause of the fire was the inadvertent mixing of chemicals which had been stored under the basement stairs.

Shorewood fireworks may fly in September

July 17, 2012 8:58 a.m. | Shorewood - The fireworks show postponed at Shorewood's Fourth of July celebration may highlight a community picnic at Atwater Park on Sept. 1.

The Shorewood Foundation -which originally funded the show - along with other local organizations like the Shorewood Men's Club, Friends of Atwater Beach, and Shorewood Seed Foundation have expressed interest in co-hosting the community picnic to accompany the rescheduled fireworks.

Village Manager Chris Swartz told the Village Board Monday that between overtime for police and firefighters and the cost of a band, the event could run somewhere between $800 and $1,500. Cancelling the fireworks outright would incur a $4,100 cancellation fee, though Swartz said it hasn't been worked out who would pay that yet.

Trustees were wary that the Village might need to postpone the fireworks again on September 1 if the dry conditions don't let up.

"I would hate to schedule it and unscheduled it," said Trustee Michael Maher.

Future's not bright for Bayshore sunglass thieves

July 16, 2012 3:12 p.m. | The lure of high-priced sunglasses proved tough to resist last week as three incidents of shoplifting occurred at a Bayshore Town Center store.

In the first, a 24-year-old Mercer, Wis., man was arrested for theft of three pairs of sunglasses valued at $435 from Sunglass Hut, 490 W. Northshore Drive, at 11 a.m. July 10 in Glendale.

The man left the store but was identified because he had purchased a pair of glasses and filled out a warranty card. He was ordered into the station where he admitted taking the glasses saying he did because he had a pair stolen a few days before.

A few hours later, at 7 p.m., an 18-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested for theft of one pair of $150 glasses. He ran from the mall and across a street. When stopped, he said he ran because he thought the police "were going to rob him." Then he said he ran because he was "out for a jog to cool off."

And at 8:40 p.m., a man took three pairs of sunglasses valued at $550 but police were not notified. An officer reported the theft during a follow-up.

Wollersheim resigns as Dominican basketball coach

July 13, 2012 9:04 p.m. | Calling recent allegations against him a nightmare for his family, Paul Wollersheim announced his resignation Friday as boys basketball coach and athletic director at Whitefish Bay Dominican.

Wollersheim, who led the Knights to the Division 4 state championship this past season, was arrested May 25 by Whitefish Bay police after a female teacher at the school accused him of sexual assault. Earlier this week, the Milwaukee County district attorney declined to issue charges against the 50-year-old, who had been placed on leave by the school.

"When you go through a situation like my family and I just went through, you quickly realize what matters in life," Wollersheim said Friday. "I had some real soul-searching to do with regard to the amount of time that I spend away from my family with being the athletic director and basketball coach.

"It just became obvious. To me, the most important thing is to be with my wife and my family."

So after compiling a 352-66 record and winning six state titles in 17 years at Dominican, including three in the now-defunct WISAA, Wollersheim said he is unsure of his career plans.

Bay School Board OKs alterations, clarifications to employee handbooks

July 11, 2012 9:22 p.m. | Whitefish Bay - The Whitefish Bay School Board approved a handful of additions and clarifications to its employee handbooks tonight.

Under previous collective bargaining agreements, the district would layoff employees it couldn't afford. Now, using employee handbooks in place of bargaining, the district non-renews teacher contracts it can't afford.

When collective bargaining was in place, a nonrenewal had a negative connotation and was associated with poor performance, though that isn't the case today, said Director of Human Resources Mark Kapocius.

The School Board approved an addition to the teacher handbook outlining grounds for nonrenewal for economic reasons, so that teachers non-renewed as a result of budget or enrollment constraints wouldn't be viewed negatively.

"We wanted to make it clear that it's for economic reasons and not performance reasons," said Kapocius.

Fox Point wants fire funding package to be doused with time limit

July 10, 2012 11:22 p.m. | Fox Point - If the village has its way, the sun will set over the formula used to determine how much each community pays to support the North Shore Fire Department.

On Tuesday, the Village Board, which has expressed concerns over Fox Point's share of the funding, requested that a three-year sunset clause be added to the latest formula. Village President Michael West will also seek a reduction in the village's share.

The proposed funding formula, an update to a previous version approved in 2007, has been making its way through the seven member communities for approval over the course of the last month. River Hills tabled the proposal in late June to seek a sunset clause, and Shorewood will address the issue in an upcoming meeting.

Less is still more

According to the new formula, as approved by the NSFD Board of Directors in early June, Fox Point would contribute 10.31 percent of the NFSD's operating, maintenance, and capital budgets beginning in the 2013 budget year - down from 10.38 in the previous formula.

Erfourth complete for Homestead

July 10, 2012 9:41 p.m. | Down 1-0 in the top of the second inning, No. 5 seeded Homestead appeared to be staring a 2-0 deficit in the face. That was until Highlanders junior pitcher Jake Erfourth fielded a bunt in front of the mound and fired it to third base, cutting down the lead runner and silencing 12th-seeded Port Washington's threat.

That set the stage for Homestead to plate four runs in the bottom of the third inning, earning three walks and scratching out two hits, paving the way to a 5-2 WIAA summer baseball regional semifinal victory Tuesday night at Rennicke Field.

“My defense had my back and I just tried to keep the ball down,” said Erfourth, who struck out five while walking three, with just a lone earned run against him. “The bunt right back at me was big to get the runner on third. That was a bit of a turning point in the game. It took their momentum.”

The victory earns Homestead a spot in Friday’s regional final at No. 4 seed Arrowhead, which topped Nicolet, 3-1.

The Pirates (10-19) collected a pair of one-out walks off Erfourth in the fourth inning but did not get a runner past first base the rest of the game.

Gaberino, Todarello help Arrowhead top Nicolet

July 10, 2012 9:32 p.m. | When the WIAA summer high school baseball tournament begins, the stakes are high for every school. Win your first game and advance to the regional finals, keeping dreams of playing in the state tournament alive.

Lose that first game, as Arrowhead has discovered the past two seasons, and the season ends with a thud.

Fortunately for Arrowhead, there were no thuds Tuesday night.

Hosting 13th seeded Nicolet, the No. 4 seeded Warhawks scored once in the bottom of the second inning and twice in the sixth as they defeated the host Knights in the regional opener, 3-1. Nicolet finished the season with a 14-17 record.

The Warhawks advanced out of the first round for the first time in three years. After winning the state title in 2009, Arrowhead lost in the opening round the last two summers.

Errors do in Bay in 4-2 regional loss to Slinger

July 10, 2012 9:06 p.m. | Last year, at this point in the season, all the hits fell in and all the catches were made by the Whitefish Bay baseball team.

That level of play led to a WIAA state tournament berth.

But this season, it was kind of hit or miss for the Blue Dukes, and Tuesday night back at Cahill Park, it was a miss night in a big way. Despite a sound pitching performance by team ace Justin Alt, Bay allowed four unearned runs and could not muster enough offense to overcome those kind of mistakes in a season-ending 4-2 WIAA regional semifinal loss to Slinger.

"He (Alt) pitched a great game," said Blue Dukes coach Jay Wojcinski. "We just didn't make a lot of plays behind him. ...It was typical of the season. It was either really good, or really bad. Tonight it was the bad part."

The Blue Dukes, who reached the state semifinals last season, ended their summer with a 15-16 mark while Slinger (13-16) advanced to a regional final at sectional top seed Menomonee Falls (26-4) on Friday.

Wollersheim, who is also the athletic director at the school, was placed on leave shortly after the arrest.

A waitress at the restaurant, who had watched a television news story about the missing couple, recognized them and called authorities, the spokeswoman said.

Ozone advisory for Milwaukee and other counties

July 05, 2012 3:43 p.m. | With continued hot weather, the Department of Natural Resources has again issued an ozone advisory for Milwaukee and other counties along the Lake Michigan coast, from the Illinois line to Door County.

The advisory lasts until 1 a.m. Friday. It’s due to persistent elevated levels of ground-level ozone, which is formed when pollution from power plants, factories and other industrial sources reacts with high temperatures and stagnant air.

The designation is orange, which the DNR says "is considered unhealthy for people in sensitive groups and others, including people who are not in sensitive groups but who are engaged in strenuous outside activities or exposed for prolonged periods of time."

The DNR advises people in these groups to reschedule or cut back on strenuous outside activities.

Here is a recent history of advisories in Wisconsin, showing that the spate of hot weather has been the impetus for more advisories. There have been nine advisories in the state since June 15. Most have included Milwaukee County.

Willowbrook Place to expand care services

July 02, 2012 10:08 p.m. | Thiensville - Senior living community Willowbrook Place will have the ability to offer Residential Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) services to all of its tenants.

RCAC services include support such as housekeeping, personal assistance, health monitoring, and medication management, as well as meal plans.

The Village Board approved the change to Willowbrook Place's conditional use permit tonight, which used to allow up to 40 percent of residents to receive RCAC services, after a joint public hearing before the Village Board and Plan Commission.

President William Arpe of Fiduciary Real Estate Development, which owns Willowbrook Place, said that after the recession hit fewer seniors are willing to sell their homes and move into establishments like Willowbrook, and that 40 percent RCAC service hasn't been enough for all the tenants who need it.

"Our original business plan was to be independent (living)," said Arpe, "but it didn't work."

He left in an Illinois rental car.
