It will be a super weekend for the Super Bowl, and all kinds of other activities across the northwoods.

Chevy receiving care in Appleton, donations continue
space
Due in part to an outpouring of community support, Chevy has been successfully transferred to the Fox Valley Animal Referral Center, which offers the best hope for the dog’s survival following a devastating Tuesday mid-day fire.

The two-year-old German shepherd was brought to Antigo Veterinary Clinic Tuesday afternoon, after Antigo firefighters rescued her from the smoldering Dorr Street home. She had been administered oxygen at the scene, using a specially designed mask donated years before by Joan Mireault of Antigo.

The clinic staff quickly provided medications, oxygen with help from equipment provided by Eastview Medical and Rehabilitation Center, and supportive care, but the complexity of Chevy’s smoke inhalation placed her case beyond the resources of the local facility. The dog was put on a ventilator, which requires sedation and around-the-clock monitoring available only at a critical care facility.

With Chevy’s owners already reeling from the fire, the community has stepped up and donated to the clinic’s Angel Fund, which provides charitable care. And that allowed Chevy to make the trip and gain a fighting chance.

Police name brothers as drivers in pursuits
space
Law officers have identified a pair of Antigo brothers as drivers in separate chases which began within the city limits and ended without an immediate capture earlier this month.

The men, 21-year old Nickolas J. Krimmer of 1230 Nantasket St. and Levi B. Krimmer, 19, of 1021 Lincoln St., both stand accused in Langlade County Circuit Court of felony counts of fleeing an officer.

The elder of the pair additionally faces charges of driving with a revoked license and bail jumping on allegations arising from a Jan. 13 chase which got its start on Forest Avenue east of Highway 45. It continued to the area of Crestwood Road and Highway AA in the town of Norwood where the chase was terminated.

The vehicle’s owner was traced through its license plates. According to court documents, Krimmer had borrowed the vehicle previous to the chase, giving the owner $200 as payment and signing a makeshift contract that he was the user. At the time of the incident, Krimmer was out of jail on bond while awaiting prosecution for a previous alleged offense, triggering the bail jumping charge.

That case dates to Jan. 1 when both he and his brother were identified as susp
