FDL Woman Bound Over For Trial On Felony Theft Charge


The 61-year-old Fond du Lac woman suspected of taking nearly $2,900 from the Brothertown Nation’s Bingo Hall in Fond du Lac was recently bound over for trial. Donna Shady was in Fond du Lac County Court for a preliminary hearing. She was arraigned immediately afterwards and pled not guilty to a felony theft charge. According to police reports Donna Shady volunteered at the bingo hall and the money was taken last December and during the early part of January. Purchases Shady made on a credit card for the hall were supposed to be for food and other necessities used at the hall. However it was discovered that she was taking cash advances out of ATMs in Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Bowler, and Keshena at casinos and Kwik Trip stores.


Safe In the Woods


If you are hunting public land this week Officer Steve Olson of the Fond du Lac Police Department says you need to be extra careful with lots of unfamiliar hunters around you. He says lots of public land is marshy and visibility is low so you should make sure you know what is behind a potential target.



Gudex Fast Forward Bills Should Be Signed Into Law Soon


Two bills State Senator Rick Gudex authored as part of the Governor’s Wisconsin Fast Forward initiative should be signed into law soon. Both bills are tied to technical education and it is hoped will help to fill the skills gap for Wisconsin employers. The state lawmaker from Fond du Lac says one creates grants for high schools that create accredited programs like welding giving them $1,000 per student to offset their costs. The other bill creates up to six scholarships per school of $2,250 each for students who will be furthering their education in a trade after high school graduation. He says that could apply to nursing, welding, fabrication and other trades.



District Approach To City Will Be Slowly Incorporated


Fond du Lac Area Convention and Visitors Bureau President Craig Molitor says a districting approach to the community known as wayfinding will benefit visitors to the Fond du Lac area. He says the City will be divided into districts such as the campus, downtown and lakeside districts. A new signage effort with welcome and destinations signs will also help visitors. He says it’s an effort they will slowly break in to get people used to it. The City will chip in $50,000 for the wayfinding effort next year that will tie into the Fond du Lac Area Convention and Visitors Bureau’s “C’mon In” theme. The Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership will also be doing its part with welcome to downtown signs, banners and more.
