Acuity crane jumper sentenced

Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco has announced that a man who bungee-jumped off the boom of a construction crane approximately 138 feet high located on the Acuity Insurance property on July 4 was convicted of criminal entry onto a construction site and sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Nicholas Propson, 26, pled no contest to the charge Monday and was sentenced by Sheboygan County Circuit Court Judge Angela Sutkiewicz to the 30-day term. Propson had previously provided restitution to Acuity of $3,406.40 to cover the cost of re-certification of the two high-rise on-site cranes to ensure the unauthorized access to the fenced and locked construction site did not compromise the safe operation of the cranes.

Propson was one of several people who performed the stunt, but police were able to identify only one other of them, Benjamin Shibler, who was also charged with the unlawful entry and who has a jury trial set for Dec. 10 in Sheboygan County. Neither Propson nor Shibler would identify others who participated.

The primary evidence for both charges was a YouTube video of the stunt posted by Propson.

Free Thanksgiving dinner returns

Immaculate Conception Parish in Sheboygan is set to hold a free Ecumenical Community Thanksgiving Dinner Thursday, Nov. 27.

All community members are invited to join in a celebration of friendship while enjoying a home cooked Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.

In addition, Culver’s will be providing the frozen custard.

In 2012, the free community Thanksgiving dinner served 750 people. With the help of 135 volunteers, 500 meals were served at Immaculate Conception and approximately 250 meals were delivered to the elderly and disabled who were homebound

Tragedy stuck in 2013 as the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Dinner was unable to raise the needed funds to continue the event.

This year, 2014, thanks to new leadership and and a major response from community leaders, the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Dinner will once again open its doors on Thanksgiving Day.

Immaculate Conception Parish is located at 2722 Henry Ave. in Sheboygan.

Snowplow drivers recognized

Gov. Scott Walker has proclaimed Thursday, Nov. 20, as Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day in Wisconsin.

The governor’s proclamation highlights the important role snowplow operators play in keeping people and commerce moving throughout Wisconsin during the winter season. The proclamation also asks motorists to be cautious when they encounter snowplows and to limit driving during severe storms to avoid becoming stranded which impedes snow removal efforts.

“When Wisconsin’s weather is at its worst, our snowplow operators are at their best, often working long hours in challenging conditions to keep roadways open for commuters and commerce,” said Wisconsin Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb in a press release announcing the proclamation. “Our department has a long-standing and valued partnership with county and municipal highway departments to keep our state highway system free of snow and ice.”

To enhance public safety and assist plow operators, DOT offers the following winter driving tips:

· Before traveling, call 511 or go online to Wisconsin 511 (www.511wi. gov) to check road conditions.

· If there’s ice and snow, take it slow. Posted speed limits apply when travel conditions are ideal, and such speeds may be hazardous when roads are slick or visibility is reduced. Most traffic crashes in winter are caused by drivers going too fast for conditions.

· When travel conditions become especially hazardous, postpone or cancel your trip.

· Stay at least 200 feet behind a working snowplow. Make sure that you can see the plow’s mirrors to ensure the driver is able to see you.

· If you must pass, be careful. Snowplows often create a cloud of snow that can obscure vision. Remember that road conditions in front of the plow will likely be worse.
