New Berlin police warn of Fire Department solicitation scam

Feb. 08, 2013 2:42 p.m. | The New Berlin Police Department just received information that one of its residents received a phone call soliciting a cash donation that was allegedly on behalf of the New Berlin Fire Department.

According to a news release by the New Berlin Police Department, neither the New Berlin Police nor Fire departments solicit donations by phone, so residents should not fall prey to this recent scam.

Anyone with information on this case, such as names or phone numbers of the caller, please call the New Berlin Police Department at (262) 782-6640. If you have received a call like this, but do not have any pertinent information that would help us solve this case, you do not need to call.

Eisenhower takes charge of Woodland, tops Pewaukee

Feb. 05, 2013 10:24 p.m. | These are the types of plays that have made Reed Timmer so dangerous to Woodland Conference foes over the past three seasons.

The New Berlin Eisenhower senior standout drilled a 3-pointer from the top of hte key with 1:10 to play, giving his team a 57-55 lead over Pewaukee in a huge Woodland Conference battle Tuesday. The Lions went on to win, 59-55, and took a two-game lead over the Pirates in the loss column of the Woodland West Division standings.

"It was a hard fought, typical Eisenhower-Pewaukee type of game," Pewaukee coach Mike Basile said.

"We were right there. Reed made that tough shot, and we had guys right there (on defense). I'm proud of how hard our kids play."

In an entertaining, tense battle, the Lions led for much of the way until Ryan Stepanovich hit a 3-pointer to make it 53-51 with 2:16 to go. After Charlie Sirek answered with a 3-pointer of his own, Eric Lutzen scored with 1:22 to go, but Eisenhower quickly bolted down the floor against Pewaukee's pressure.
