Eau Claire Leader Telegram (Newspaper) - February 2, 1983, Eau Claire, Wisconsin Wednesday feb. 2, 1983 Leader Tel Gramch a redial airline tries incentives to get fliers to use county Airport by Jeff Schurman Leader Telegram staff Inocal air travellers who drive to Minneapolis to begin their trips Are costing eau Claire county a lot of Money. In v in 1982, for example the county Airport applied for a $100,000 Federal Grant to pay for the Purchase of a 51-acre piece of land the Airport needed for expansion. The county paid for the land in 1981, and the Grant Money would have reimbursed the general fund. The Grant based on a complicated formula that includes passenger boardings was not awarded because the Airport recorded too few boardings during 1981. A study of local airline traffic commissioned by the greater eau Claire area chamber of Commerce and completed last fall revealed that about one half of area residents travelling by air departed from Minneapolis because it was less expensive. Airport manager Guy Wood said monday that if about 1,000 More passengers had departed from the county Airport the passenger quota would have been met and the county would have been repaid for the land. To prevent that from happening again Airport management the air Augusta police officer s wife suspected in shoplifting Case officers of the eau Claire county sheriffs department thursday executed a search warrant at the Home of an Augusta police officer. A the warrant was filed monday with the eau Claire county clerk of courts. V recovered from the Home were Memerous items that police believe there stolen by the Augusta officers wife. The list of recovered items is six and one half pages Long. Julie Zimmerman 34, of 1008 w. Lincoln St., Augusta was charged oct. 14 with one count each of felony Abd Misdemeanour shoplifting in connection with incidents sept. 15 at the get Jau Claire Shopkow store 955 w. Clairemont ave. Zimmerman is the wife of Augusta police officer Evan Zimmerman. According to the warrant Evan Zimmerman called the Augusta police department to report that his wife had stolen his car. Fellow Augusta officer David Burch went to Zimmerman a Home where Zimmerman showed Burch numerous items that he said his wife had stolen. Most of the recovered items were clothes according to the warrant. As Zimmerman was showing Burch the items he said a look at this stuff they Haven to even caught up with her on this stuff a the War rant states. Zimmerman later showed Burch a sweater at the Home and said a this is genuine silk handmade it Cost $195. She has 60 District attorney Rodney Zemke was out of town today and was not available for comment on what charges will be filed against mrs. Zimmerman. Mrs. Zimmerman remains free on a signature Bond on the first two shoplifting charges. She has not been jailed on the pending charges. One High ranking member of the sheriffs department who refused to be identified said today a a it a the damnedest thing in be Ever lines and members of the chamber of Commerce have developed a plan to provide financial incentives to those who begin their trips from eau Claire. Republic airlines now is offering round trip tickets Between eau Claire and Minneapolis for $20 to those passengers who connect onto a Republic flight in Minneapolis. The round trip fare is called an a add on and has been offered off and on for about a year said Bob Perry republics station manager in eau Claire. However until Jan. 15, those who bought the add on tickets usually were not entitled to other special or gimmick fares the airline offered its customers who boarded in Minneapolis. Now they Are. For example Republic is offering a round trip from Minneapolis to selected cities in Florida for $198. To depart from and return to eau Claire would Cost $218. Lakeland aviation working with Northwest Orient airlines offers a fare Structure similar to republics. Lakeland passengers can to Fly to Minneapolis for $10 round trip if they connect with a Northwest Orient airlines flight there. Again the passenger can take advantage of most special fares that Northwest Orient offers. Airport officials and chamber of Commerce members Are excited about the add on fares now that passengers can also take advantage of special fares. They Are hoping the new rate Structure will encourage local air travellers to use the county Airport More which will prevent the county from losing More Grant Money. The airlines also Are encouraged because the passengers who use the add on fares Promise to connect with another of their flights. The Grant the county lost comes from the aviation Trust fund which is built from taxes airline passengers pay through ticket purchases. The fund is administered by the Federal aviation administration. The Grant is for capital improvement projects Only. Wood said that about 28,000 passengers boarded flights in eau Claire during fiscal year 1981, which runs from oct. I 1980, to sept. 30, 1981. Had the passenger quota been met the county would have received $6 per passenger from the fund. Wood said the county could reapply for the $100,000 Grant. Even though the county did not receive the capital improvement funds from the Faa it did receive some discretionary funds. The difference Between the discretionary funds and the capital improvement Grant is about $100,000, Wood said. Winter going Strong in area Altoona policeman suspended by Scott Lautenschlager Leader Telegram staff Altoona a the police and fire commission tuesday suspended patrolman Michael q. Lambert for 90 Days without pay for allegedly falsifying a police report in a Drunken driving Case. Lambert said this morning he will consult his attorney about either appealing the decision to circuit court or filing a labor grievance. A ninety Days for something that Wasny to done is a Long time a he said adding that the suspension would cause him to lose about $4,000 in wages. Lambert 25, 2427 Lynn ave., Altoona was charged with falsifying police reports in three cases where he arrested men for driving while intoxicated. Two of the arrests were made in May 1982, the other in january 1982. But the four members of the commission were Able to agree that a charge should be upheld in Only one Case said commission Secretary Donald Gillett. The Drivers in All three cases were found to be legally intoxicated according to testimony and evidence. The commission deliberated on the charges for about 3v hours in closed session after hearing prosecution and defense attorneys present closing arguments. The commission reached tie votes on two of the charges Gillett said. State Law says a tie vote should go in favor of the defendant thereby exonerating him of those two charges Gillett explained. The vote was unanimous to uphold the charge in the third Case Gillett said. He pointed out physical evidence that contradicted lamberts report in that Case As a significant Factor in the unanimous decision. According to the charge filed with the commission lamberts report states that the Driver drove Over a Cement divider in the Road at highways 12 and a. Altoona police chief David of Donahoe testified tuesday that he inspected the Road divider the Day after the arrest and found no Marks in the Snow to indicate a vehicle had driven Over it. The arrest was made Jan. 17, 1982. Prosecutor Charles Jordan also submitted As evidence information from the National weather service showing that Only a Trace of Snow fell Between the time of the arrest and when of Donahoe inspected the scene. Gillett called the commissions decision a Compromise. Earlier he had described the situation As Black and White Lambert would either be fired or allowed to return to duty. Lambert has been suspended with pay since last november. A i suppose our compassion Rose for the Young fellow a Gillett said. He pointed out testimony by of Donahoe that Lambert has the potential to be a Good police officer As a key Factor in suspending Lambert rather than firing him. A this a entered into our deliberations considerably a Gillett said adding that fining him would have amounted to an a life sentence by killing lamberts chances of having a Law enforcement career. But Lambert sees the suspension As being a life sentence of sorts anyhow. A i could probably kiss any Job goodbye outside this department because of the blemish to his record he said. Special prosecutor Charles Jordan an eau Claire attorney said this morning he is a a pleased with the commissions decision. The commission apparently was convinced that Lambert can be rehabilitated Jordan said but a whether that pans out will depend on the attitude of the courthouse he was referring to whether the District attorney and judges will regard Lambert As trustworthy in making arrests. While making his final argument to the commission Jordan said a we Are talking about something of the greatest Gravity because judges depend heavily on what police officers put in their reports. A your freedoms As citizens Are in bad shape if the police can to be believed a Jordan said. Donald fast the Baldwin attorney representing Lambert told the commission it would be a a travesty of Justice to prevent Lambert from pursuing a this life a chosen Lambert has been an Altoona police officer since april 1980. He said he has been involved in Law enforcement since the age of 15 when he joined the police explorer scouts in St. Louis Park Minn.
