space
“TravStrong,” a benefit supporting Travis Hohensee, will be held Saturday at the Edison Club Event Center in Antigo from 3 p.m. to midnight.

The benefit will include games, prizes, 50/50 raffles, a silent auction, and music will be provided by Northwoods Karaoke and DJ.

On May 20, 2014, Hohensee began experiencing loss of feeling and eventually motion amongst the right side of his body. He was taken to Aspirus Wausau Hospital where numerous tests were performed before he was transported by ambulance to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison.

Upon admission, further testing was performed and it was determined that Hohensee was suffering from a cavernoma hemorrhage of the brain. The most serious complication of a cavernoma is that of a hemorrhage. Fortunately, the team of doctors in Madison reacted promptly and took Hohensee into emergency surgery to repair the hemorrhage on May 21. After just three hours in surgery, the surgeons repaired the hemorrhage and ultimately saved his life.

After weeks of recovery in Madison, Hohensee was transferred closer to home to begin extensive rehabilitation in Wausau. His rehabilitation will consist of,

space
Bail was set at $2,000 cash in Langlade County Circuit Court Monday for an Antigo man arrested on allegations linked to a drunken weekend scuffle.

Jason R. Powell, 36, of 1025 1/2 Fifth Ave. stands charged with five criminal counts in connection with the violent dispute — strangulation or suffocation, battery, domestic disorderly conduct, possession of drug paraphernalia and a felony charge of bail jumping.

A woman alleged that Powell grabbed her and pushed her up against a refrigerator at a local home. He then bit her in the cheek and hand, breaking the skin. The woman then said he plugged her nose with his hands and told her to be quiet, causing her to have trouble breathing.

She said she drove to the Safety Building to report the incident after he had fallen asleep.

As condition of bail, Powell is to refrain from the consumption of alcohol and to stay out of taverns. He also cannot have any contact with the alleged victim while the case is pending. The matter is scheduled to return to court on Aug. 4.

A friend of an Antigo man already convicted of firing shots from his downtown apartment at vehicles and buildings near the CoVantage Credit Union last winter will now also face criminal charges.

Michael Gibney, 24, of W10696 W. Fifth Ave. made an appearance in Langlade County Circuit Court Wednesday where he stood accused of six counts, including a felony charge of endangering safety by reckless use of a firearm. The remaining five charges, one a felony, are for causing criminal damage to property.

Gibney is free from custody on a $1,000 signature bond.

The charges date to November of 2013 when the Antigo Police Department began investigation into a series of damage complaints involving vehicles which had been damaged by .22 caliber gun shots. Glass at the credit union drive-thru was also damaged.

Cory Myers, a 27-year-old Antigo man, was identified as the shooter and in June he was sentenced to serve 90 days in jail in addition to being placed on a term of supervision. During his sentencing, it was revealed that a second man also played a part in the case.

According to court documents, Gibney was identified as joining Myers in firing shots f
