TOWN OF GENEVA -- A utility company finished clearing trees along a power line route in Geneva Township before town officials had a chance to stop them in court.

Instead, the town issued citations to American Transmission Company for violating ordinance No. 58. The ordinance says a building permit from the town's building inspector is required before removing any trees or brush and prohibits "clear-cutting" trees.

The town filed the suit Oct. 28, 2016, and was going to ask a Walworth County judge to issue a temporary restraining order Nov. 21, 2016, but that hearing was cancelled, according to town attorney Richard Torhorst.

ATC maintains it was never "clear-cutting" the trees, according to an affidavit from Joe Benzschawel, an ATC Vegetation Management Specialist. An ATC Spokeswoman, Jackie Olson, previously said in an email to The Gazette that ATC told local officials "on several occasions" the company believes the local ordinance does not apply to public utilities.

"ATC will not be able to achieve clearances necessary to assure safety and reliability if stopped from performing tree trimming and removals on the X-55 transmission line," Benzschawel wrote. "The close proximity of trees to the X-55 line puts the public, including landowners and non-certified tree workers, at risk of electrocution should they touch such a tree."

Part of ATC's X-55 line, the power line in question, runs north along County Highway H from County NN, then along Palmer Road to Wisconsin Highway 67. The X-55 line is also located in Elkhorn and the town of Delavan.

Walworth County Judge Daniel Johnson ruled Oct. 13 that ATC could trim or remove trees near the Fellow Mortals Wildlife Hospital. The ruling came in a case filed in June by Fellow Mortals, owned by Yvonne and Steven Blane, in an attempt to block the tree cutting, saying the removal would harm injured animals.

The citations against ATC will be held before a municipal court judgement, Torhorst said.

Because ATC filed a request for substitution of judge with the town of Geneva Municipal Court, the date the citations will be reviewed is not yet known, Torhorst said.

ELKHORN—An Elkhorn man is accused in Walworth County Court of delivering methamphetamine while he was released on bond for charges of making the drug.

1201 methBryan Tidwell, 32, of 21 West St., pleaded not guilty Nov. 14 to charges that he made meth in his apartment. Walworth County sheriff's deputies picked him up just days later on suspicion of dealing meth, according to a new criminal complaint.

Tidwell now faces additional charges of party to delivery of meth, possession of meth and materials for making meth, and bail jumping, all felonies. He was charged Oct. 27 with manufacturing meth, possession of waste from making meth and drug paraphernalia, charges for which he was released on signature bond.

A Walworth County Drug Unit deputy reported he was conducting surveillance Nov. 20 in the town of Delavan on Tidwell, whom the unit had learned was still involved in making meth, according to the complaint. Court records say the alleged incident occurred Nov. 17, but a Walworth County dispatcher could not clarify the correct date Wednesday night.

At about 9:52 a.m., the deputy observed Tidwell being picked up by a red Cadillac and dropped off in the town of Sugar Creek at Highway 12 and Hawk Road, according to the complaint. The deputy continued to follow the vehicle for about 15 minutes when it returned and picked Tidwell back up.

Police stopped the Cadillac and found Tidwell with a small plastic vial with meth inside, according to the complaint. Tidwell told police he delivered two bottles of water to another person for those bottles to be used to make meth.

Tidwell appeared in court Wednesday while in custody on a motion to modify his $5,000 cash bond, which was denied by Judge Kristine Drettwan, according to court records.

Tidwell is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on the new charges at 2 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12 and for a status conference on the original charges at 1:15 p.m. Jan. 18.

ELKHORN—A man pleaded not guilty to charges he stole a car, ran naked near the UW-Whitewater campus and attempted to sexually assault a woman who gave him clothes, all while high on acid. 

1201 acid trip

Chidiebele P. Ozodi, 20, of South Milwaukee, pleaded not guilty to felonies attempted second-degree sexual assault and operating a vehicle without owner consent and misdemeanor disorderly conduct, according to the criminal complaint filed in Walworth County Court.

On Oct. 4, Whitewater police responded to a report of a car hitting a tree on Starin Road. The driver, later identified as Ozodi, left on foot and began punching parked cars while naked, according to the complaint.

Ozodi forced himself on top of a woman who gave him shorts and a T-shirt and told her he was going to rape her before the woman and a nearby man were able to get him off, according to the complaint.

Ozodi told police he had taken two tablets of acid.

Ozodi is next due in court at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 1 for a final pretrial hearing.

ELKHORN—A Whitewater man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to shooting and killing his brother-in-law.

1130 alan johnson

Alan M. Johnson, 31, is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 43-year-old Kenneth Myszkewicz, who is married to Johnson's sister, at Myszkewicz's home on the 900 block of West Peck Street in Whitewater on Oct. 25.

After Johnson denied knowing how Myszkewicz died, police said they received a call from Johnson's father, Eric Johnson, a retired police officer, who said "come over right away," according to the complaint.

When police entered the home, Johnson stood up and said, "Arrest me. I killed him," according to the complaint. Eric told police rounds of ammunition for his .40-caliber Smith and Wesson pistol were missing and the gun had not been cleaned since it was last fired.

Assistant District Attorney Diane Donohoo would not specify a motive for the shooting, but alluded to family problems as a possibility.

Defense attorney Scott McCarthy filed a demand for discovery and inspection Nov. 21 asking for copies of child pornography and other photos from Myszkewicz's computer.
The demand includes requests for:

-- "Copies of more than 5,500 photographs, which will be found on his (Myszkewicz's) computer, of school age, neighborhood girls taken by Kenneth Myszkewicz from the front window of his home as those young girls were walking home from school."

-- "Copies of Kenneth Myszkewicz's categorization of those school age, neighborhood girls into groups such as "Blondes", which will be found on his computer."

-- "Copies of all child pornography found on any computer or device owned or utilized by Kenneth Myszkewicz."

McCarthy declined to comment on how those materials might be relevant to his client's case.
Johnson is set to appear in court next at 1:15 p.m. Jan. 27.
