MINOCQUA, Wis. (WAOW) -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Kirk Bangstad, the owner of Minocqua Brewing Company, in connection with a 2021 defamation case.

According to WSAU Radio, Bangstad was found to be in contempt after failing to appear in court in Rhinelander for a hearing on Wednesday. The hearing was in connection with a defamation case where Bangstad was found guilty of making false statements against Lakeland Times Publisher Gregg Walker's family.

Bangstad was ordered to pay Walker nearly $760,000. The Minocqua Brewing Company was also named in the suit and ordered to pay an additional $329,000.

According to court records, neither debt has been paid. Further court action is scheduled for May 22 and 23.

Madison.com suffers from a bad ad problem. Even if you pay to subscribe, and you should, the site's ads are intrusive, ranging from flashy app store games to pop-ups and even reports of malicious javascripts embedded within ad iframes.

If you block the ads, the paywall pops up and yells at you for doing so, even though you are a paying subscriber and should NOT be subjected to abusive, intrusive, obtusive ads. Lee Enterprises doesn't get it, so let this guide serve as your instruction manual for allowing madison.com paid-for content without the visual cancer.

So, how do you get 'round the ad-block and get yo' fix o' Rickerts?

Step 0. Determine which web browser you are using. If it looks like a beachball of sorts, it's Chrome. If it's a orange circle with a purplish center, that's a Firefox (or Foxfire as some of my clients call it. I don't correct them I liken it to a toddler who says 'pa-sketti' instead of 'spaghetti'. It's cute, 'til it's not). If it has a blue-green swirl to it in the vague shape of an e, you are using Edge, and I will probably have to go really, really slow for you.

Step 1. Click on the link of your browser above. If yours is listed, you're likely already reading the next step after having installed the uBlock Origin add-in/extension/plug-in. If your browser isn't listed above, Google {name of web browser} and "ublock origin". Follow the steps to install the add-in/plug-in/extansion-on/brwoser-extensible-store-app

Step 2. Open the uBlock Origin Dashboard:

Step 3. Add the filter https://madison.com/tncms/access/ to a blank line:

Step 4: Enjoy your ad-free subscription.
