In order to protect the victim, she will only be referred to by her first name. The first time Julie was beaten by the man she loved, he pulled her down 14 steps by her arm. She heard something snap. The reason for the attack? "He didn't like the shorts I had on," she said. The two had been a couple for six months. After suffering for days, hiding her injured arm under long-sleeved shirts, violence erupted again. Julie came home to find her boyfriend drunk with his friends. She found pills in his drawer and confronted him.
On March 20, 2007, the unthinkable happened. Shelby Kittelson, a mother of two, was shot in the head in the parking lot of St. Mary's Hospital-Superior. The man who shot her, her estranged husband, David Adolphson, ended his own life later that day. Despite a restraining order, despite a pattern developing in law enforcement reports, the shots were fired. "We should have seen this coming," said Superior's Assistant Police Chief Charles LaGesse. Weeks after the accident, Kittelson's family weren't sure if she'd ever walk or talk. Today, she lives with her mother, Carol, in South Range.
Shiny, juicy, tempting apples are closer than you think. For 13 years, David Fritz has been carting crates of apples to the town of Parkland for sale. His roadside stand, less than a mile from the intersection of highways 53 and 13, offers a continuous stream of fresh-picked apples from the beginning of August until Thanksgiving. "The Paula Red, that's our big, popular early apple," he said. "Then of course you get into the Wealthy and the McIntosh and the Cortland, those are kind of the middle season apples.
When his country called, Jack Bellino answered. Leaving behind a wife and 1-year-old son, he went to war. "I spent 29 months in a tent," he said, putting up communications towers along air strips in Australia and the Philippines during World War II. When he returned to Superior, the bus dropped him off in the middle of the night. Without fanfare or cheers, he walked to his house, knocked on the door and was reunited with his family. Decades later, he stood up for his countrymen in another way. As a member of the Thomas F.
From senators to neighbors, everyone wants to know the status of the Twin Ports VA Outpatient Clinic. The thriving clinic, which leases space at St. Mary's Hospital in Superior, provides primary care to 5,450 veterans from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and even Canada. Despite a current bid process, officials say it isn't going anywhere. "At this point we have no plans to leave the Twin Ports area," said Mary Kolosky, clinic operations manager. The clinic's 20-year lease with St. Mary's ends in August 2009 with no more options for renewal.

By MARIA LOCKWOOD Daily Telegram Staff Writer Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton introduced the Wisconsin Covenant to Superior High School freshmen Tuesday with a line straight out of the Godfather. "I'm here to make an offer you can't refuse," she told the ninth-graders filling the school's performing arts center. "We're asking you ... to become a covenant scholar." By signing the covenant, Lawton told students, they enter into "an all-win, no-lose" situation.
A Superior man's alleged work-from-home business has left both he and his mother facing drug charges in Douglas County Circuit Court. Jeffery Paul Linder, 30, and his mother, Emily Marie Linder, 54, are accused of growing 80 marijuana plants in Emily Linder's Allouez home. The two made initial appearances Thursday. Jeffery Linder faces felony charges of manufacturing marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia along with one misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Twenty-five years ago, one woman started an army. These soldiers for peace, most with a touch of gray in their hair, continue to fight on both a local and national level. Superior native Barb Wiedner founded Grandmothers for Peace International in 1982 to protest nuclear weapons. It started with a circle of friends and $11 in pooled change.
Members of the U.S. military serve in all types of weather -- desert heat, snowstorms, downpours and more. When it comes time to honor their service with a flag raising, their loved ones won't have to. Friday, members of the Richard I. Bong American Legion Post 435 and Thomas F. Stein VFW Post 1091 dedicated an indoor flagpole at the Richard I. Bong World War II Heritage Center. The pole rises from the sandy floor of the lower level, near a restored P-38 Lightning plane. A 48-star flag, similar to the one Maj.
