THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Check for New Dog
Thanks to the Karl Zeitler Memorial, the Oconto County Sheriff's Department will be getting a new patrol dog. A check for $13,500 was presented Saturday, March 25 at Little Creek Lodge in Suring during the Annual Karl Zeitler Memorial Fundraiser. Julie Zeitler, wife of the late Karl Zeitler, presented the check. Karl passed away suddenly in 2010 and the family continues to honor him with the annual fundraiser at Little Creek Lodge. Karl loved dogs and hunting and this is the perfect way to keep his legacy alive, his wife stated. In 2016 the City of Marinette Police Department was able to purchase a patrol dog courtesy of the fund raiser.

Deputy Skarban stated no taxpayer money is used for the purchase of the dog and it is a great and appreciated partnership that we have with the Zeitler family.
