Two benefits to help defray medical-related expenses, the annual Fly into Fall fund-raiser for the Raptor Education Group and the big fall festival at St. Wencel Church in Neva are all crowding the calendar on this autumn weekend.

A look at activities across the area, taken from the Antigo Daily Journal’s advertising columns, follows:

CARLEY BENEFIT

The public is invited to show their support for Pat Carley at a benefit in his honor Saturday at Vickie and the Vets.

The event will run from 2 to 8 p.m. and include food, raffles and a bake sale. There will be live music by the Deleglise Street Band beginning at 6 p.m.

Carley, longtime auto mechanic for Charlie’s Automotive in the town of Norwood, suffered a massive stroke earlier this year. Although he has made great progress toward recovery, he still suffers from memory issues and has lost strength on his left side. He will never be able to return to work.

Carley and his wife, Theresa, have one daughter.

An account has been set up in his name at CoVantage Credit Union labeled Pat Carley Benefit.

#JULIESTRONG

A benefit will be held on Sunday at North Sta

Police allege Weed Street home had the makings for meth
space
When Antigo police responded to a Weed Street home last week on the report of a disturbance, they found a battered man overturned from his wheelchair in the living quarters and the apparent makings for a meth lab in the garage.

On Monday, 40-year-old Paul D. Mitchell appeared in Langlade County Circuit Court to face charges in connection with the incident which led up to his Sept. 13 arrest.

He’s charged with battery and disorderly conduct on allegations he punched a disabled man multiple times in an outburst which left items damaged within the home. A window was broken and a dresser was flipped over.

A count of obstructing an officer was added on allegations Mitchell attempted to evade police by fleeing the house on foot. He was caught but before being taken to jail, he was taken to Aspirus Langlade Hospital for medical clearance due to an alleged high level of intoxication.

Released from there, and while being escorted back to a squad car in handcuffs, he tried to run from police again. And as Mitchell ran, he allegedly grabbed a box of surgical masks, leading to additional charges of escape and theft. He later explained he believed the box t

Motorcycle in crash will face charges
space
A man who crashed his motorcycle near Post Lake Sunday night will face charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Langlade County sheriff’s officials advise that it is the 54-year-old Elcho area man’s third such offense.

The crash occurred at about 8 p.m. at the intersection of Highways Z and K in the town of Elcho.

According to reports, the man told emergency responders that the cycle landed on his ankle and he believed his ribs may have been broken. He was transported to Aspirus Langlade Hospital by Elcho EMS.

In addition to drunken driving, he is expected to be charged with driving without a motorcycle license, failing to maintain control of his cycle and failure to stop at a stop sign.

Law officers visited the hospital emergency room on Sunday afternoon on the report a female patient was causing a ruckus, evidently because she was not happy with the service provided. Police stood by at the scene until she was discharged.

A 16-year-old male escaped arrest, but was given a stiff warning, following his Saturday afternoon antics. His trick? Climbing the water tower near North Elementary School.

space
K-9 Natscho assisted police in the arrest of a 23-year-old Antigo man in a traffic stop near Second Avenue and Arctic Street late Wednesday.

Officials said a bag containing a small amount of marijuana was found concealed inside a pool cue case. The driver was also cited for driving with a revoked license.

Reports indicated that the man’s vehicle didn’t have a front bumper and had an inadequate muffler, triggering the stop.

A 16-year-old boy is being referred to juvenile corrections for allegedly bringing a knife to school. Officials said the teen was the resident of an area group home.
