“An unfortunate misunderstanding, “say Juneau County authorities.  Thursday afternoon Mauston Police Chief Mark Messer and Juneau County Sheriff Brent Oleson jointly advised Juneau County parents to walk their children to and from bus stops as a result of an incident in the City of Mauston Thursday morning.  “As a result of information and extensive cooperation with the parents and Mauston School District, the investigation found no merit to the complaint that an unknown male individual had approached an 8-year old girl walking to school yesterday,” said both Chief Messer and Sheriff Oleson.  They wish to thank the citizens for all the tips and information provided to authorities.
