The 4-year-old Racine boy who was found in Browns Lake Monday evening has been identified as Tyrice B. Creed by the Racine County Sheriff's Office.

Racine County sheriff's squads were called to Fisher Park at Browns Lake about 5:30 p.m. for a report of a missing boy. Tyrice was at the park with a caregiver and other children, including his brother and sister, according to the sheriff's office.

As authorities searched the grounds the Racine County Sheriff's Dive Team was dispatched as well as the Town of Burlington Fire/Rescue Department.

A patron who was assisting with the search saw Tyrice under water by a pier and called for the deputies. Dive team members retrieved the boy and started CPR.

The Packers were ranked the fourth least dateable team by other fan bases in a We Are Fanatics survey. According to the survey, Bears fans won't even date a Packers fan much less touch one. Mike De Sisti/Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Dating is hard.

It's even harder when others see you as undateable.

And if you're a Packers fan, that's exactly what you are. So, you might as well forget about the dating scene altogether because apparently, no one wants to date a cheesehead.

We Are Fanatics conducted a survey to figure out just how a person's NFL fandom might affect who they date.

SUPERIOR - Authorities Tuesday released the name of a 63-year-old maintenance worker who died when he fell down an elevator shaft at a Superior hotel.

Police identified the victim as Michael Steven Grigoni. Authorities say Grigoni had lived in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Police say Grigoni was trying to fix a malfunctioning elevator at The Androy Hotel on Aug. 15 when he apparently opened the elevator door and walked through, falling about 15 to 20 feet to the basement. He died at the scene.

Superior police and the Douglas County medical examiner’s office spent a week trying to identify and locate his next of kin before releasing his name, but could not find any living relatives.

ETRICK - Authorities say a western Wisconsin man has died in a rotary mower accident.

The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Department says 47-year-old Brady Olson of Ettrick was operating a tractor with a rotary mower attached. A preliminary investigation found the tractor was heading downhill when Olson somehow became entangled between the tractor and the mower.

The accident was reported just before 7:30 p.m. Monday. Olson died at the scene.

A government inspector general Tuesday called for an expert panel to review the opioid prescribing practices of a physician at the Clement J. Zablocki Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

The unnamed physician is a psychiatrist who treats some of the most complex cases of addiction and has a proven track record of success, a Zablocki VA spokesman said.

"We have reviewed his practices and we are confident that he is providing outstanding care to our veterans," said Gary Kunich, the spokesman.

"We make every effort to treat all our veterans with the best and most-safe and most-effective care anywhere," he added.

The VA inspector general conducted an investigation from January 2015 through March 2016 after receiving requests from Wisconsin lawmakers U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore of Milwaukee and U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin.

"Some of the findings in this report are two years old and while some changes have already occurred at the facility, a provider with questionable prescribing practices is only now coming to light — this is unacceptable," Baldwin said in a statement.
