Ghost Deer Meets its End

Middleton Police responded Tuesday, July 14 to a report of a deer killed by a car on Airport Road at Quisling Park. That, in itself, was nothing unusual in a region where deer are ubiquitous. But this was no ordinary buck – it was a rare white deer. These ghostly creatures held special meaning for ancient cultures ranging all the way from Celts to Native Americans. 
 
Middleton resident Mike Bauerle said he and his 13-year-old daughter, Megan, observed the deer just hours before its demise, spotting it at approximately 5:30 a.m. on the corner of Evergreen and Airport roads. “I had to look twice,” Bauerle stated. “It still had all white felt on its antlers, which really made me look.”
 
“I was driving, and by the time I could reach for my phone and pull over, it was gone,” he added.

Middleton's best of the best

Several state tournament appearances — again.
Numerous conference championships — again.
Remarkable consistency throughout the athletic department — again.
It was another sensational year for the sports teams at Middleton High School, where the Cardinals continue to match — and exceed — past performances
Of course, some achievements rank as the best of the best. Here’s one person’s opinion of that list.
 
Girls team of the year: Track and field
There was so scoreboard watching. No number crunching.
Middleton’s girls track and field team simply stuck to the plan, performed at a remarkably high level and finished second at the WIAA Division 1 state meet in June.
The Cardinals weren’t expected to finish inside the top-three at state, but nearly came away with a title.

Ring Finding is a Family Affair

When I asked Dan Roekle how he and his family got started as metal detectors, his answer spoke volumes, “We got hooked on the stories!” 

While on vacation in Florida several years ago, Dan and his son saw some retired fellows walking the beach with metal detectors.  The stories that those men told about their “finds” led the Roekles to purchase a basic detector when they got home.

For the first year, Dan and his two children went to area parks.  While his daughter played on the park equipment, Dan and his son took turns detecting. They felt like it was a good day when they found a quarter.

Then Dan discovered a website by a group called The Ring Finders.  It was created to help people get reconnected to lost wedding or other special rings.

The Ring Finders offers a directory of people who love going out with their detectors to help in those recoveries.  There is a small fee for the service to cover time and gas.

Hard Times

Middleton resident Michelle Shamsee is asking the community for support to help get her life back on track after her car was hit by a man who allegedly robbed the BP gas station on University Ave and fled from police in a stolen car.  

According to Middleton Police, the robbery suspect led three officers on a chase through the residential area near Tiedeman’s Pond, just off Gammon Road on May 31.

Shamsee’s car sustained $10,000 in damages and her insurance had lapsed at the time of the incident.  The auto owner’s insurance of the stolen vehicle will not pay anything because damages caused by theft are not covered in their policy.  Shamsee is entitled to restitution but will not likely receive anything from the defendant.

“Getting restitution from a person who isn’t working and is stealing a car is like getting blood from a turnip, it’s not going to happen, and meanwhile I’m still without a car,” Shamsee said.

Norregaard picks Appalachian State

Elizabeth Norregaard wasn’t expecting to continue her basketball career in Boone, N.C.

But when the former Middleton High School standout added everything up, the 850-mile journey east made the most sense.

Norregaard announced last week that she’ll play collegiately at Division 1 Appalachian State, where she’ll receive a full scholarship. The last player from Middleton to receive a Division 1 scholarship was Krissy Marco who went to Akron in 2002.

The Mountaineers, who play in the Southern Conference, went 14-16 a year ago.

“I picked Appalachian State because the coaches are super nice and just seemed really interested, which made me feel special,” Norregaard said. “Also, I think the role I would have on the team would be great and it seems like a really good fit for me with their style of play as well.”
