The Wisconsin Departmentof Justice (DOJ) has obtaineda judgment against Krist OilCo.for allegedly selling orexchanging liquefiedpetroleum (LP) gas cylindersthat were not filled to theproper weight.Krist Oil Co.of Iron River,Mich.,operates 67 gas stationconvenience stores in north-ern Wisconsin,includingEagle River,Three Lakes,Land O’ Lakes and St.Ger-main.Under the terms of the con-sent judgment,Krist Oil Co.isrequired to pay $65,000,which is made up of civil for-feitures,statutory surchargesand attorneys’ fees,accordingto state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.The lawsuit wasfiled on behalf of the Wiscon-sin Department of Agricul-ture,Trade and ConsumerProtection (DATCP).The consent judgmentresolves a lawsuit filed by thestate in Oconto County Cir-cuit Court in October of 2010.The complaint,which com-menced that litigation,alleged that Krist Oil Co.offered for sale or exchangeLP gas cylinders that wererepresented to contain a netweight of 17 pounds of LP gas,but when tested,were foundto be filled to a net weight of less than 17 pounds andwhich underweight conditionexceeded the maximum allow-able variation.In addition,the complaintalleged that certain LP gascylinders offered for sale orexchange did not either pro- vide a declaration of responsi-bility attached to the contain-er or conspicuously post a dec-laration of responsibility atthe location where the con-tainer was offered or dis-played for sale or exchange,asrequired by Wisconsin law.Further,the complaintalleged that certain LP gascylinders did not disclose onthe LP gas cylinders the netquantity of LP gas in eachcontainer,as required by Wis-consin law.Finally,the complaintalleged that certain LP gascylinders were not plainly,clearly and conspicuouslymarked with the container’stare weight,as required byWisconsin law.The judgment also imposesinjunctive relief and directsKrist Oil Co.to submit toDATCP a written statementof the method by which KristOil Co.will ensure that LPgas cylinders offered for saleor exchange in Wisconsindeliver the net weight of LPgas which they are represent-ed to contain.The case was originallyinvestigated and referred tothe DOJ by the DATCP.Thecase was prosecuted by Assis-tant Attorney General PhillipD.Ferris.The consent judg-ment was signed Nov.1 byMarinette County CircuitJudge Tim A.Duket.

Another change in the billallows hunting from “portable”deer blinds,such as those on ahay wagon or trailer of somesort,which was not legal in thepast because those fell underthe definition of a vehicle.The bill establishes that theprohibition of discharging afirearm from a vehicle “doesnot apply to a person legallyhunting from a stationarynonmotorized vehicle that isnot attached to a motor vehi-cle.”The Wisconsin HuntersRights Coalition gave its sup-port to the firearm transporta-tion law.“Placing the firearm on orin the vehicle is often thesafest and most practicalplace,”said a coalitionspokesperson.“Huntersshould not have to put theirfirearm in the snow as theyget out their gun case everytime they get back to their vehicle.” Another bill passed duringthe Legislature’s regular ses-sion,Senate Bill 75,perma-nently ends Earn-A-Buck andmakes October T-zone hunts ararity.The bill was presentedby Sen.Terry Moulton (R-Chippewa Falls) and Rep.TomTiffany (R-Hazelhurst).“We listened to the com-monsense requests of the out-door community and are nowsigning them into law,”saidWalker Friday as he signedthe bills.
