space
Nationally acclaimed folk singer Bill Staines will return to Antigo Saturday for an evening performance at Hoffman House, 1015 Fifth Avenue, Antigo. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m.

Like a troubadour, Staines is touring the nation from his home in New Hampshire. Many of his songs have originated from the places and people he has encountered during his 40 plus years of touring the United States and Canada.

The noted folk singer has produced 26 albums and seven books. His latest CD, Beneath Some Lucky Star, was released in 2012 by Red House Records. Staines book, The Tour: A Life Between The Lines, is an excellent recounting of his experiences as a troubadour.

Moira Scupien, who arranges Staines’ Antigo concert each year, says that the folk singer is a favorite with local persons who enjoy his songs and singing.

He paints pictures of real people through storytelling and music, she added.

For Staines, that is what folk music is all about--music rich in the human experience and spirit.

A cover charge of $10 per person will be collected at the door. Many of Staines’ albums and books, including The Tour: A Life Between The

Police allege woman had both methamphetamine, marijuana
space
A Wausau woman remains jailed here today facing drug-related charges, accused of possessing both methamphetamine, marijuana and associated paraphernalia including a meth pipe found concealed in an infant’s sock.

Paulitta M. Sedillo, 26, was ordered held in the Langlade County Jail Monday on a $2,500 cash bond during the continuation of her cases through the court system. A probation hold also remains in effect, keeping her behind bars should she post bail.

Documents drawn by Special Prosecutor Galen Bayne-Allison detail the allegations which stem from separate contacts with Antigo police during a seven hour span on May 5.

The meth counts developed first when she was questioned as an occupant of a vehicle whose driver was wanted in another investigation. Officials removed a glass pipe from the vehicle and when Sedillo’s purse was searched, police found additional pipes and jewel bags, one with .62 grams of methamphetamine and other with trace amounts of the drug. The sock and pipe were also found.

Authorities said during the investigation, Sedillo developed a medical emergency and was transported to the hospital, curtailing her arrest.

Local driver learns it doesn't pay to tailgate

A tailgater picked the wrong vehicle to follow Monday afternoon.

A 22-year-old Antigo man is facing criminal charges today after learning that the auto he had been closely following, and then passing along Highway 64, was actually an unmarked squad driven by a Langlade County sheriff’s deputy.

According to reports, the driver was deviating in his lane and traveling at varying speeds, slower to allow space between he and the squad ahead of him and then faster, coming within a foot of the cruiser’s bumper. The deputy pulled to the side of the road, allowing the driver to pass, and as he did, the officer noticed that the vehicle’s exhaust system appeared to have been altered, making it louder than necessary.

The driver was subsequently stopped and according to the deputy, he showed signs of impairment. The motorist admitted to having a pot pipe in his car and he said he had smoked marijuana hours earlier, explaining he was still high.

Officials went to his home and were allowed to search his room for contraband but nothing was located.

He was arrested and is being referred to the district attorney’s office for possession of d
