Fall Ride accidents

Three crashes involving motorcycles marred an otherwise summer-like Tomahawk Fall Ride in Tomahawk. Flight-for-life helicopter traffic was heavy at times in the skies above.

Four people were injured Friday evening, Sept. 14, in a crash on County Road A involving two motorcycles and a passenger car. One man was from Clyman, and a man and two women were from Fort Atkinson. The driver of the car, an 81-year-old Tomahawk woman was not injured.
Early Saturday morning, a crash involving three motorcycles and a parked pickup truck caused injuries to four people, two of whom were critical.

Packer Number One fan

The Chicago Bears probably thought they had a pretty good shot of sneaking out of Lambeau Field with a season opening statement win after taking a 17-0 lead into the half.
Heck, maybe even a few of the cheeseheads scattered amongst the crowd and watching at home thought heading into intermission that they were witnessing the start of the take over of the NFC North by the Kahlil Mack Show. But little did they know the Pack had more to play for, as not only was their number one fan (Mugs Bachhuber, formerly of Tomahawk, voted into the Green Bay Packers Fan Fall of Fame either this year) in attendance at Lambeau that Sunday night, but she brought with her a few of her diehard Packer Backer family members who needed the team to win to make their birthday wishes come true. Read the entire story in the Sept. 18 Leader, available on newsstands and through an Online Edition right here.
