A Vilas County family's 12-hundred pound memorial to a man killed last year disappeared 2 months ago, and now, the family wants anyone with information to come forward. We talk to the widow, the contractor and a deputy about this mystery.

Volunteers will walk the streets of the Northwoods late at night this week looking for homeless people, hoping their count gets people the help they need. We talk to the program facilitator about why homeless people are hard to find in the Northwoods.

And an Eagle River man hasn't missed the EAA in 15 years, and now he has gifted all three of his children with a trip. We talk to him about why the event is important to him.
