Authorities
have released the identity of a man who drowned in Shawano Lake in Northeast
Wisconsin. The Shawano County sheriff's office say 26-year-old Steven Olewinski
of West Allis drowned on Friday when he jumped in the lake from a boat to save
his dog. Authorities say his wife threw a life preserver, but Olewinski was
unable to reach it and he disappeared under water when she swam to him.
Olewinski's wife and the dog made it out safely.

A
watchdog report from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel shows state regulators are
failing to verify the income for individuals collecting taxpayer-supported
benefits. In one example, the Journal-Sentinel reported a Milwaukee woman with
six children received more than 150-thousand dollars in benefits over the last
five years, yet failed to tell the state she collected rent from properties
valued at least 4-million dollars. When asked about the properties, the woman
claimed they were her mothers, who is also reportedly receives
taxpayer-supported benefits, and she doesn't receive money from them. The report
indicates people who claim to be self-employed are usually excluded from
cross-referencing of reported income to the I-R-S and other regulators.
One-point-one million people are receiving taxpayer-supported benefits from the
state. According to the report, it is unknown how many are claiming to be
self-employed.
