Keshena woman gets time served for taking car

A Keshena woman who took a car and drove it from the Menominee Indian Reservation to New York City was sentenced Friday in federal court to 59 days in jail, the amount of time she spent in custody after her arrest.

Danielle R. Kaquatosh, 34, faced a statutory maximum of five years in prison after taking a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am on Sept. 17. Instead, she was sentenced from the advisory sentencing guidelines, which have far less severe maximum penalties.

After sentencing Kaquatosh to time served, District Judge William Griesbach put her on two years supervised release.

According to court documents:

A man identified by the initials T.H. told a Menominee County sheriff’s deputy on Sept. 23 he had heard that Kaquatosh had taken a vehicle he had borrowed from his boss and was driving it.

The deputy confirmed with the vehicle’s owner that Kaquatosh did not have his consent to take and drive the vehicle, only T.H.

Harley-Davidson wants to teach more to ride

Harley-Davidson is placing a renewed emphasis on teaching people to ride as part of its efforts to attract more customers.

The Milwaukee-based company’s decision to expand the number of dealerships with a Harley “Riding Academy” comes as the industry grapples with years of declining sales and an aging customer base.

The program launched in 2000 with about 50 locations, and now 245 dealerships in the U.S. offer the three- or four-day course. The company says about a quarter of those launched since 2014.

Harley sold 124,777 new motorcycles through nine months in 2017, down from 135,581 during the same period the previous year, according to the company’s most recent earnings report.

The Motorcycle Industry Council says the median age of motorcycle owners increased from 32 to 47 since 1990. About 46 percent of riders are over 50; only about 10 percent are 30-34.

3 nabbed in latest computer sex sting

Three men, including one from Clintonville, were arrested on computer sex crime charges in the last sting operation conducted by the Shawano County Sheriff’s Department earlier this month.

Joshua M. Lapp, 32, of Clintonville; Troy M. Galston, 47, of Madison; and Daniel I. Fulton, 39, of Green Bay, are all facing felony charges of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.

Lapp and Galston are also charged with child enticement, and Galston faces an additional two counts of causing a child to view sexual activity.

The arrests came as a result of a sting operation in which sheriff’s detectives posted ads on the internet posing as a 15-year-old girl.

The men responded and exchanged texts and emails with the supposed child that became sexually graphic in nature.

In Galston’s case, he also sent images of his genitalia, according to the criminal complaint.

County approves up to $15M for lumber building

Shawano County supervisors approved borrowing up to $15 million Wednesday to remodel a property just north of Shawano into a new human services center.

The county purchased the Dennison’s Retail Lumber property at W7327 Anderson Ave. in the town of Wescott for $1.8 million in September.

The borrowing will cover the purchase price, which was initially taken out of the general fund, remodeling of existing buildings and construction of a new building on the site, as well as related demolition and site improvements, according to the resolution.

The resolution needed a supermajority of 21 votes to pass and received 22. Supervisors Deb Noffke, Randy Young and John Ainsworth voted no. Supervisors Roger Miller and Robert Krause were absent.

The county plans to relocate two of its human services centers to the property.
