Fight ends in shots fired

A landlord and tenant got into a fight Thursday night, resulting in the landlord firing a handgun at the tenant, but no one was hit, according to Lake Geneva police. Officers were called to the residence in the 700 block of North Street at about 11:53 p.m. Thursday and arrested Kevin Aumuller, 49, on charges of battery, criminal trespass to a dwelling, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer, according to a police statement released Friday night.

Walker promotes tax credit

The give-back is an acknowledgment that “the government took more of your money than it was supposed to, and now it’s giving it back to you,” Walker said.
