Break-ins Reported in Nasewaupee

• The Door County Sheriff’s Department has received several reports of break-ins in Nasewaupee Township, in Southern Door County. The suspects gained entry by going through unlocked doors or windows and also damaged doors to get inside; some entries were made while the homeowners were asleep in their homes. The suspects stole sporting equipment and firearms.

The Door County Sheriff’s Department reminds residents to lock their homes and garages. Items of significant value should be locked away in their homes or elsewhere. Anyone with information about these break-ins is asked to contact Investigative Sergeant Connie Schuster at 920.746.2428.

 

• Lieutenant Jeff Farley announced his candidacy for Door County Sheriff, as a Republican.

Farley has been working in law enforcement for 30 years. He was hired in Door County in 1986 and has served in multiple roles. He is currently the department’s field service lieutenant.

“The training and experience that I have gained over the years has given me a solid foundation and a working understanding of Law Enforcement, the Door County Sheriff’s Department and the Door County community,” Farley said. “It would be my honor to continue to serve you, the people of Door County as your next sheriff.”

 

• The recently introduced Senate Bill 542 would allow chiropractors to perform acupuncture with only 100 hours of training and no requirement for clinical observation. This is in stark contrast to the 1,900 hours – 660 of which are supervised clinical hours – currently required by the State of Wisconsin for certified acupuncturists. Wisconsin statute defines acupuncture as a means of promoting, diagnosing, preventing and treating disease based on traditional Oriental medical concepts of treating the specific areas of the body, known as acupuncture points or meridians. “The State of Wisconsin must uphold the current standards and requirements for practicing acupuncture to ensure consumer safety and protection,” said Sarah Atkinson, president of the Wisconsin Society of Certified Acupuncturists. “Any legislation that waters down current standards to practice acupuncture is irresponsible and creates a significant safety risk for the citizens of the State of Wisconsin and should not be enacted.”
