Evgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(RACINE, Wisc.) — A reward to help catch the gunman who killed an off-duty Wisconsin police officer has climbed to $37,000 .Officer John Hetland, a 24-year veteran of the Racine Police Department, was at Teezers Tavern in Racine Monday night when he saw an armed robbery unfolding, police said. He tried to intervene and was shot, police said.As authorities continue to search for his killer, Racine Police Chief Art Howell said Thursday that a local business has provided a $15,000 reward.The FBI has already offered a $20,000 reward, while Racine Crime Stoppers has provided a $2,000 reward, the chief said.Though tips have been pouring in, Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth said he hopes the large reward convinces more people to come forward.“Help us catch this person and get him off the streets,” Beth urged at a news conference Thursday.Meanwhile, the shocking slaying has been “extremely traumatic” for Howell’s fellow officers, Howell said.But the chief added, “they are a resilient group of people. They are bruised but they are not broken.”“They are doing what John would want them to do,” he said. “They are serving the public.”Hetland is survived by two children, Racine Mayor Cory Mason told reporters on Tuesday.“I’ve ordered the flags to be flown at half-staff today and until his burial,” said the mayor, who had met Hetland before his death. “I just really can’t express how deeply we feel the loss of this officer. It’s been more than 40 decades since we’ve had a loss in this city.”Hetland will be laid to rest on June 26, the chief said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
IS IT TRUE that the fireworks were poised to light up the Evansville City Council meeting last night with a host of controversial issues all coming to a head in the beginning of what promises to be a long hot summer?…A request to move $100,000 in local income taxes into the Affordable Housing Trust Fund was voted down 5-4 by City Council after the people of Evansville had spoken their piece against favoritism when it comes to reduced rent in taxpayer subsidized housing?…it is beginning to dawn on the people of Evansville and 5 members of the City Council that the time for lavish handouts is over and the time for responsible financial management is long overdue?…the elected officials in favor of the subsidies to those deemed to be special and deserving were Jonathan Weaver, D-At-Large; Connie Robinson, D-4th Ward; Jim Brinkmeyer, D-6th Ward; Dan Adams, D-At-Large and Republican Mayor Lloyd Winnecke?…this one may come back to haunt a few of these elected officials when it comes time to run again? IS IT TRUE that the police and fire unions for the City of Evansville are apparently so fed up with the way the city is being mis-managed that they have ceased communication with the Winnecke Administration?…all we can say is that the obsession with fun, games, and the downtown have distorted the sense of reality in Evansville to the point of ridiculousness? Todays “READERS POLL” question is: If the election were held today for Republican nomination for Mayor of Evansville who would you vote for? EDITORS FOOTNOTES: If you would like to advertise or submit and article in the CCO please contact us City-County [email protected] . IS IT TRUE we wonder why officials at Henderson Methodist Hospital and officials of a Evansville Hospital are discussing issue of economic concerns? …if members of the local main stream media would had attended last weeks Board of Directors meeting of Henderson Methodist Hospital they would know the answer to this question? …if you read tomorrows IS IT TRUE you just might get a better idea of what we are talking about?…this is a developing story? IS IT TRUE the City Council has also voted to allow pot bellied pigs as pets in the city limits?…we are wondering what will be allowed next since there are already homes in the city limits with cows, chickens, and at least one donkey?…we are looking forward to hearing a member of the city council bray like a donkey to approve East Side Jack as a household pet? …if Council President Missy Mosby would spend more time on things like how to stop run away deficit spending instead of a “pot bellied pigs” issue we wouldn’t be in such a financial mess? IS IT TRUE that every time the Evansville DMD Director speaks in public his know it all attitude is becoming a serious liability for the Winnecke Administration? …a great example is how he snubbed Rev Steve Ary during last nights Council meeting when Rev Ary was asking some pointed questions about the North main street design problems? IS IT TRUE we continue to stick by our 2016 predictions that the City of Evansville has major financial problems? …we predict that this coming budget hearings will be the beginning of the undoing of Mayor Winnecke’s tax and spend away of doing business?
