State's first Walmart Neighborhood Market targets June opening

April 27, 2012 9:34 a.m. | The first Walmart Neighborhood Market in Wisconsin will soon be opening its doors in Wauwatosa, and it has begun searching for about 75 people to work there.

Prosecutors, defense spar over evidence in Brookfield slaying

April 24, 2012 3:06 p.m. | Waukesha - Prosecutors say they have evidence including a notebook, letters, emails and statements that implicate Lynn M. Hajny in the June murder of Brookfield businessman John C. Aegerter and want to use it at her trial next month.

Some evidence was discovered in a search of Hajny's New Berlin home after the killing and some was found at the home of a Wauwatosa Police Department clerk who authorities say was involved in the plan to kill Aegerter. The clerk, Mark Finken, 43, shot and killed himself in his garage July 23, shortly after he was interviewed by Brookfield police.

But Hajny's attorney, Michael F. Hart, has filed a motion that seeks to prevent that evidence from being used at the trial, scheduled to begin May 3.

The motion was discussed Tuesday during a hearing before Waukesha County Circuit Judge Patrick C. Haughney, but no decisions were made to give prosecutors more time to respond to Hart's motion.

Hajny, 49, and Tommy Douyette, 42, are accused of killing Aegerter, who was found dead in the garage of his Brookfield residence on June 22.

Final count does not change election results

April 11, 2012 10:26 a.m. | The City of Wauwatosa Clerk's Office Tuesday released the final tally for the April 3 spring election after tallying fewer than 20 at-deadline absentee ballots.

Final numbers did not change the outcome of any local race. Final numbers can be seen on the city's website, www.wauwatosa.net.

City Clerk Carla Ledesma said she has not received a request for a recount in any of the races. The recount-request deadline is 5 p.m. April 12.

Ledesma said the city's election turnout of just under 43 percent of between 32,000 and 34,000 registered voters was surprisingly low. Two previous mayoral races each generated about a 50 percent turnout, she said.

"I thought it would have been higher," she said, "because the election also included the Presidential primary vote."

"It is with mixed emotion that I inform constituents of the 2nd District and fellow council members that I will not be able to serve another full term as alderman of the 2nd District," he wrote in a letter dated April 5. "I thank you for your support of confidence and it has been a privilege to represent your interests over the years. However, our family will be moving from the aldermanic district by the end of June, 2012, as a result of an employment change."

Meaux was elected to another four-year aldermanic term April 3 in an uncontested race. He currently serves on the Community Development Committee and chairs the Traffic and Safety Committee, and is council president.

City to raze home and put in a parking lot at 69th and North

April 03, 2012 10:46 p.m. | The owners of the home behind Voline Garage on North Avenue spent thousands of dollars renovating the property in hopes of finding a buyer and making some profit.

But the new owner won't be enjoying meals in the new kitchen or decorating any of the three bedrooms. The Common Council on Tuesday agreed to purchase the property at 2323 N. 69th St. with plans to demolish it and build a parking lot.

"They understand it's the buyer's right to do what they want with it," said George Levin, the real estate agent with First Weber who is handling the deal. "They feel they got a fair and equitable arrangement."

The house has been vacant since his clients purchased the home in December, 2010, Levin said.

While a parking lot may seem less than glamorous, it's an important first step to implementing the master plan for North Avenue in East Tosa, city staff said.

Police: Foursome at Taco Bell 'void of clothing'

April 02, 2012 2:40 p.m. | Four people, including a 20-year-old Wauwatosa woman, decided late March 29 they were going to heed Taco Bell's slogan of "live más" by wearing less. But in the end they will wind up paying much más than their food bill.

According to the village of Pewaukee police report:

Before this foursome made a run for the border, they were playing a gamed called "padiddle." The game calls for each person in a vehicle to hit the roof of the vehicle and yell "padiddle" after seeing a vehicle with one headlight out. In this group's version, the last one to hit the roof then removed a piece of clothing.

As the foursome was driving about they apparently started to think outside the bun.

The foursome told police that the game "got out of hand" and they thought it would be funny to go to Taco Bell, 1355 Capitol Drive, Pewaukee. About 10:10 p.m. police received a complaint about indecent exposure in the drive-thru lane. A Taco Bell employee told police that when the order was taken the employee heard "an unusual amount of laughing and giggling" and "child's play."
