BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. (WXOW) – The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday night that they continue to look for the man accused of shooting at a deputy Thursday night.
Chief Deputy Adam Olson said that on Saturday morning around 9 a.m., a person on Taylor Road in the Town of Springfield said they believed that Gary Hughes was on their property.
The sheriff’s office said that Hughes shot at a deputy who was trying to take Hughes into custody at a residence Thursday night. The deputy was not hurt. After a 15-hour standoff, authorities entered the residence and found that Hughes wasn’t there.
Chief Deputy Olson said that officers went to the Taylor Road area and spent the rest of the day looking for Hughes. They weren’t able to find him.

Property valuations are going up for eight out of 10 Wichita-area homeowners, so you’re wealthier and could probably sell your house in a heartbeat.

But taxpayers concerned about postal delays can download and print their bills now, said Stark County Treasurer Alex Zumbar.
First-half property tax payments are due by Feb. 17. Taxpayers paying by mail meet the deadline if their payment is postmarked by Feb. 17.
State law usually sets a payment deadline of the third Wednesday of February.
But last year, Zumbar with approval of the Ohio Department of Taxation extended the deadline to March 4 due to delays in the installation of new finance software in the county auditor’s and treasurer’s offices. So some people may not realize this year the deadline has reverted to its typical time in February. By law, failure to pay on time incurs a 10% penalty.
Property tax bills must be mailed at least 20 days before the
