Lodger Allegedly Killed 82-Year-Old Middleton Woman

On Wednesday of last week, 82-year-old Agnes Bram was at the Middleton Senior Center, playing euchre with her friends, as she often did. It was the last time she was seen alive.

Also at the senior center that day was a man named John “Jack” Hamann, who investigators believe later murdered Bram, from whom he was renting a room.

While police say the motive was unclear, news of the alleged homicide sent shockwaves through a community that is, both in terms of perception and crime statistics, usually remarkably safe.

While the story pieced together by authorities seemed ripped from the opening pages of Crime and Punishment, those who knew the victim were quick to share fond memories about the friendly woman known to her friends simply as “Aggie.”

The woman, whose body was discovered in her garage by a family member, was remembered for being active in the community, for enjoying and telling jokes, and for caring for others.

Tennis Cardinals start out strong

Middleton’s boys tennis team is off to a rip-roaring start.

The Cardinals won the Madison Memorial Invite last weekend, defeating Oshkosh West, 6-1, in the championship match on Saturday.

Middleton cruised past Sun Prairie, 6-1, in the semifinals Saturday. In Friday’s matches, the Cardinals nipped Madison Memorial and Homestead by identical 4-3 scores.

“These were our first matches of the season and a lot of teams already had four-plus matches under their belt,” Middleton coach Kalla Schaefer said. “You never know how those first couple of matches are going to go, but players came through right from the first match.”

In the title match, Middleton got singles wins from Ryan Gold at No. 2, Haiwen Dai at No. 3 and Nitin Somersanderam at No. 4.

Softball team wins four of five

Last week marked an exciting one for the Hibner Family.

First, Middleton softball coach Perry Hibner watched his team win four of five games during an action packed week. Then, Hibner’s oldest son got married last Saturday.

The Cardinals defeated Madison West, 11-2, last Monday and rolled past Madison La Follette, 15-4, last Tuesday. Middleton dropped a 10-5 decision to Sun Prairie last Wednesday, but rebounded with a 12-5 win over Beloit Memorial on Thursday and an 8-3 victory over Janesville Parker on Friday.

“I was pleased that we focused on the task at hand each day and didn't look too far ahead,” Hibner said. “After all the inclement weather we've had this spring, I think the girls were just excited to be playing every day.”

Here’s a recap of the Cardinals’ week:

• Middleton 11, Madison West 2 — Senior Makenzie Kopp struck out 11 as the Cardinals beat the Regents last Monday at Jefferson Middle School.

Middleton golfers in rebuilding mode

Tom Cabalka, Middleton’s ultra-successful boys golf coach, pictured the scenario before it even took place.

Cabalka, like most golf coaches, drives his team to their meets. And Cabalka knew this year rides would be substantially different than recent seasons.

“I think I’m going to get in the Suburban and look in the rearview mirror,” Cabalka said. “And then I’m going to say, ‘Who are you guys?’ ”

That’s a fair question.

Middleton lost more firepower than any team in the state. And Cabalka can be forgiven if he begins feeling nostalgic from time to time.

Gone are the trio of Emmet Herb, Joey Levin and Brady Thomas, who left an indelible stamp on the program. That threesome played varsity four straight seasons and led Middleton to top-five finishes at state each of the past three years, including a second place finish in 2016.

Tennis Cardinals thinking big

The pieces still need to be assembled.

Lineup positioning will be determined in the days ahead.

When that happens, Middleton’s boys tennis team believes big things are in store in 2017.

Middleton begins its season Tuesday at Sun Prairie. And the Cardinals have high hopes that great things await.

“This team has a strong tennis background, with players who train year-round and work on their games in the offseason,” Middleton first-year coach Kalla Schaefer said. “They are coachable and enthusiastic. My main concern right now is getting a lineup set.”

Middleton returns seven players who were part of last year’s team that reached the semifinals of the WIAA Division 1 state team tournament.
