A deer hunter was injured in Taylor County on Monday, due to treacherous icy conditions in the woods.  Just before 11 A.M. the Taylor County dispatch was called indicating that a hunter had fallen and was unable to get up.  The Medford Ambulance, Medevac, Taylor County Sheriff’s officers and Medford Area Fire Department responded to the scene on Martin Drive, ½ mile south of Highway 64 in the town of Goodrich.   The male hunter indicated he had slipped on a large patch of ice and the fall resulted in injuries which prevented him from being able to get up.  After a period of time another hunter found him and called 911.  The Medford Area Fire department’s off-road rescue vehicle retrieved the hunter who was about ½ mile back in the woods.  

Judge Anne Knox Bauer’s slate of court cases Thursday included the question of constitutionality regarding admission of evidence.
In a case involving Michelle Thompson, detective Aemus Balsis testified that he made a traffic stop in Medford when he observed a driver operating without a valid license.  Thompson was a passenger in the vehicle which was being driven by a known drug abuser.  When Thompson became squirmish in the front seat she was removed from the vehicle, handcuffed and in her purse methamphetamine was found.  District attorney Kristi Tlusty said the state was relying on the automobile exception law to allow an officer to check the defendant’s purse without a warrant.  Judge Knox Bauer told the court she would make a determination as to whether the Automobile Exception law does apply and allow the evidence to be allowed.
Next, a motion to suppress evidence was introduced by Karl Kelz, attorney for Heidi Mann of Rib Lake.  Kelz felt that a recorded interview with Heidi Mann, Human Services Child Protective Counselor Julie Clarkson and Detective Aemus Balsis should not be allowed as evidence in Mann’s Case.  Heidi Mann had requested that sheriff’s officers not come to her home and subsequently agreed to detective Balsis being present for the interview which took place at human services.  Kelz argued that a lack of Miranda should render the hour and twenty minute interview inadmissible.  Judge Knox Bauer ruled that Mann’s dialogue was of her own free will.  The judge said that Mann’s dialogue told what happened, how she felt and why she did what she did.  The interview was accepted for evidence.  A status conference was set for December 16th at 10 A.M.
