After repeated incidents at Park Arthur and Lake Denoon Park, the park board looks for ways to prevent damage.
Beyond a youthful escapade with a truck, the tire marks on the Park Arthur sledding hill have caused some delays and required dollars to fix, and this is before the official opening of hill this coming winter. Similarly, vandalism has been reported at Lake Denoon Park and occasionally at Bluhm Farm Park in past years, and it's apparently come to a point where the Parks and Recreation board will be discussing prevention at its meeting on Monday at 5:30 p.m. One of the incidents at Park Arthur did result in the arrest of a Pewaukee man in 2011, but concern has been raised over what can be done to protect the parks, or to deter vandals. Parks Director Craig Anderson has said while Park Arthur in particular was under development, the placement…

Police say the expletive marked the third such incident for the tenant of an apartment complex, but have no leads.
Maybe stronger fences would make good neighbors in a case at a Muskego apartment complex. A report from an apartment manager in Muskego had police investigating the source of an expletive written on the front door of a woman's apartment.

Telltale tire ruts appeared sometime between Monday and Tuesday, but sledding is expected to go on in winter.
It appears the sledding hill at Park Arthur looks too enticing for off-roaders, as vandalism to the hill was discovered Wednesday, according to park officials. Parks Director Craig Anderson told Muskego Patch in an email, "I believe this was done Monday or Tuesday night with all the recent rains. It will not derail winter sledding unless the hill sloughs dirt in the area where all this damage was done." This marks the second such damage to the park in the past year with the hills slated to open this coming winter. No word yet on any possible suspects but we will update the story as more information becomes available.

Muskego Police have taken on the case of the missing brass emblem, which was part of a commemorative bench donated by the American Legion, and are asking for its return.
Earlier this week, it was reported by Fred Korth, commander of Muskego's American Legion Post 356 that a brass emblem was taken off of a commemorative bench in the Old Settlement Center, which the post donated to the city. Muskego Police have since taken on the case and forwarded the information to Waukesha County CrimeStoppers, which is an organization that awards citizens with information that leads to an arrest. According to police, the emblem was last seen on the bench before the Muskego Community Festival, the weekend of August 24-26. The theft was discovered during the legion’s flag lowering ceremony on September 11th, in remembrance of the lives lost. "As I prepared to lower the flag in honor of 9-11 disaster, I noticed that the …
