It's been a quarter of a century since Douglas County has had a contested district attorney election. And, as with the 1990 contest, this year's race between challenger Mark Fruehauf and incumbent Dan Blank will effectively be decided during the primary Aug. 9. Both men are running as Democrats. For Superior native Fruehauf, it would be a return to his roots. He went to law school to be a prosecutor. "I have a passion for criminal law," Fruehauf said. "I've always wanted to serve this community."
When Chris Wagner reached the middle of the Blatnik Bridge on Tuesday, she found the kitten. "I thought I was going to pick up a carcass," said Wagner, community service officer with the Superior Police Department. "There she was, huddled against the median." The 2-pound kitten, about 12 weeks old, couldn't use her right front paw. The animal's shoulder had been pulled out of its socket, causing permanent nerve damage. "We'll have to amputate," said Sheila Keup, shelter director for the Humane Society of Douglas County.

Many of the facts that will be presented to Douglas County jurors this week in the murder trial of Dallas Eugene Robinson are not contested. The 20-year-old is one of five young adults who traveled from a Duluth residence to Superior's Allouez neighborhood on Sept. 30, 2014. By the time they returned, a Superior man was dead. "It was a terrible day," Robinson's attorney, Tracy Eichhorn-Hicks, told the jury Tuesday afternoon. "A young man was killed who should not have been killed." But, he told them, the blame rests with Chance William Andrews.
