Most Bizarre Local News Story

1st Place: Sexual assault with a snake

2nd Place: The case of Keith Urban’s missing hand

3rd Place: Local dude pours beer from head, gets on Letterman

While there is absolutely nothing to be celebrated in the disturbing news that involved a sexual assault with a serpent, it’s undoubtedly one of the most shocking headlines to originate in the Chippewa Valley this past year. Equally eyebrow-raising was the tale of the missing Hands Across Eau Claire sculpture that attracted a consolation from Keith Urban himself, and eventually was returned from all the way down in Milwaukee. But Douglas Stelzer’s second invitation to pour beer from cans stuck to his head on national television (David Letterman, no less!) is undoubtedly a local party trick we can all be proud of. — MDL
