Possible Dolowy Murder Suspect Still Being Studied
A new 'person of interest' was scheduled to be interviewed this past fall about a cold-case murder in La Crosse County...
Sheriff's Captain Kurt Papenfuss says an interview has been done, and a DNA sample could be obtained to see if the man is connected to Terry Dolowy's death. But they're not much closer to charging anyone with the 1985 murder of Dolowy. Her headless body was found burning in a ditch, and DNA was taken from her remains a few years ago. Papenfuss tells us that in order to bring a new perspective to the case, an investigator in the D-A's office is reviewing the files on Dolowy's death.
After the revelry of New Year's Eve many of us will settle down to set goals for 2012. And rather than hitting those weight-loss resolutions full tilt in the new year, Mayo Health System's Marianne Fritz suggests starting small and working from there...
By making small, manageable changes, the Health Promotion Consulting says, you won't be making the same resolution, to lose weight or quit smoking, again this time next year.
No Snow Means No Dough
Not getting your sledding, snowmobiling and skiing in yet due to a lack of snow? Danielle Johnson with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism says when the state does see a lack of snow.......some people just move their winter activities....indoors.
She says places like the Dells......MIlwaukee and Lake Geneva don't really have to use much of their advertising dollars this time of the year either......people know with no snow........there's no play.
Voted ID Events To Be Held
4 events will be held next week to shed some light on the state's new voter ID law that went into effect Sunday. As Jane Klekamp tells us, The League of Women Voters, AARP & the La Crosse County Aging Unit are all in on the educational sessions.
In addition to education about the law the League, AARP and the Aging Unit will be available to offer assistance to voters who want to get the ID to vote but may not quite understand how, when and where to begin. La Crosse County Clerk, Ginny Dankmeyer will attend each event to offer advice about the new law and to answer questions. They will be held in Onalaska, Holmen, La Crosse and West Salem.
More On Fake Pot Bust
An Alma woman, busted this week for running a synthetic marijuana business that netted over a million dollars this year, will be back in court next week. Police says they had their eyes on 40 year old Tamara Schrock and 25 year old Blake Dennis, also of Alma, for the past 6 months. Both face charges of possessing synthetic marijuana and running a drug trafficking place.
Buffalo County deputy's raided a home in Alma on December 21st, after police in Winona were tipped off to a package for Dennis delivered to a UPS facility and it was later found to have synthetic marijuana. Officers said nobody was home when the raid began, and they found drugs that were packaged for sale plus a manufacturing operation hidden above the rafters in a garage.
An estimated 200 thousand dollars worth of synthetic pot was seized that day along with a car and a shotgun. Schrock returned home while the raid was taking place, and she implicated Dennis. Schrock is free on bond, while authorities have yet to find Dennis.
