Homebrew bill signed into law
MADISON, Wis. - Homebrew legislation was signed into state law on Monday, updating current laws regulating the home brewing of fermented malt beverages. The bill allows people who homebrew as a hobby to make and share their homebrew outside of their homes and to hold tasting events and competitions.
“This is common sense legislation that will allow home brewers to continue to pursue a hobby that has been around for decades,” Rep. Dan Kaufert (R-Neenah) said. “The bill will simply allow home brewers to share their homebrew with friends, family members, and club members.”
In other news, raw milk and marijuana are still illegal in the state of Wisconsin.

Ozaukee County no longer the healthiest in Wisconsin
St. Croix County, which borders the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, has unseated Ozaukee County as the healthiest county in Wisconsin in an annual health ranking released Tuesday.
But I’m sure Ozaukee will just throw some money at it and be back on top again in no time.

Nyjer Morgan (and Toonces the Driving Cat) launch creepiest campaign ever for pet adoption
Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a beautiful thing that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer “Tony Plush” Morgan is supporting animal rights and the adoption of pets by lending his likeness to PETA’s ‘Adopt, Don’t Buy' campaign. Really, I do.
But this is the creepiest photo of a hockey-turned-baseball player holding a demonic cat that I have ever seen.
(That’s actually Morgan’s adopted cat Slick Willie pictured above. Not Toonces the Driving Cat.)

Ancient woman lands plane after pilot passes out at wheel
STURGEON BAY, Wis. - An 80-year-old woman with virtually no flying experience took control of a small plane from her unconscious husband which was dangerously low on fuel and landed it on a runway in northeastern Wisconsin.
Seriously. That happened.
Helen Collins’ 81-year-old husband passed out due to some sort of medical condition (read: he was old as shit), and was pronounced dead a few hours later at a nearby hospital.
Hats off to Ms. Collins for keeping her shit together to land that plane. I don’t know that I would have been able to do it.

Future Jeffrey Dahmer arrested on suspicion of illegally hunting 100 deer
RICHLAND COUNTY, Wis. - Nathan Blaha, 20, and his three friends were arrested last week for what prosecutors call an unprecedented “thrill-kill.”
Blaha faces up to six months in jail for the nocturnal deer-killing spree, in which he and his buddies wandered the back roads of Richland County in a pickup truck, stunned deer with a powerful flood light, and then shot them, leaving their carcasses to rot. According to court documents, the men were competing to “get the most deer,” a contest which Blaha reportedly won by a landslide.
In Wisconsin, deer hunting is a time-honored institution with regulations and ethical rules, all of which Blaha seems to have broken. 
Blaha is facing three counts which, if convicted, could land him 18 months in jail, thousands of dollars in fines, and the revocation of his hunting rights for the next nine years. Punishment which I’m sure will show him the error of his ways, and will lead him down the path toward a successful and fulfilling life as a contributing member of society. As opposed to his current path, which is the most direct route to Serial Killersville, USA.

Troubled JetBlue pilot from Mequon is USM alum
You know what airlines don’t like? They don’t like pilots using the radio to broadcast their mental breakdowns. Especially when their mid-flight babbling includes such statements as “things don’t matter,” or "we need to take a leap of faith," or "we’re not going to Vegas." No, they don’t appreciate that. Nor do they appreciate their pilots sprinting through the cabin hollering about terrorism, religion, and explosives. They tend to frown on that sort of thing. Another thing they don’t like is when vigilante passengers are forced to apprehend unstable pilots mid-flight with seat belt extensions and zip ties. Yeah, they’re not real big on that.
I think we’ve all heard about the JetBlue pilot (pictured above) who went bananas on a flight from New York to Las Vegas a few days ago. For those of us who haven’t, his name is Clayton Osbon, 49, and he’s facing federal charges for reportedly running through the cabin of of the New York-to-Las Vegas flight screaming about terrorists, al-Qaida, Jesus, and 9/11. 
But wait, there’s more. The guy is from Mequon, Wisconsin, born and raised. Oh, you knew that already? Did you also know that he went to University School of Milwaukee? Apparently rich people go crazy every once in a while, too.
Fun fact: His father, Ronald O. Osbon, was killed in 1995 plane crash with his business partner on their way to the Bahamas where they were going on an expedition for a sunken treasure. And Ronald was flying the plane.
