Chiropractor sees increase in injuries due to ice
RHINELANDER - Tuesday's icy sidewalks can create dangerous walkways for people.

Some slips and falls can cause serious damage.

Dr. Earl Roth of Roth Family Chiropractic in Rhinelander says it's important to treat those injuries as soon as possible.

Slips and falls due to icy conditions have kept his clinic busy.


"Most commonly we see people with soft tissue injury, bruises, subluxation, and that results in pain and inflammation," said Dr. Roth.
Roth Family Chiropractic has different options for treating injuries.

If you do slip, seeking medical help is important.

"If something should happen to you whether it be a slip and fall or a small fender bender, do have it checked because often I see people who have let something go, an injury go, and by the time they come in, it's much more challenging to help them and it takes longer," said Dr. Roth.

To prevent accidents on the ice, Dr. Roth suggests walking on snow and wearing proper footwear.

WAUPUN - The remains of an unidentified woman found in a frozen creek in Fond du Lac County nearly 10 years ago will be exhumed this week at a cemetery in Waupun.

Sheriff's officials say forensic anthropologists will examine the remains of "Jane Doe" using techniques that weren't available when her body was found. Through chemical isotope analysis, investigators may learn where the woman lived and her approximate age. DNA testing can determine eye, skin and hair color, as well as genetic ancestry and face shape.

SUGAR CAMP - Students in the Three Lakes District practice a new form of discipline. Instead of punishments students learn how to calm down by practicing the art of mindfulness. 

"When you're mindful you're in the present moment," said eight- year-old Brooke Neumann.
 
Students from Pre- K to 6th grade in the Three Lakes School District took a few time outs from life this month. 

"[They're] learning how to accept life and take life as it comes and enjoy the present moments," said Sugar Camp third grade teacher Ali Pichowski.

This time out isn't a punishment. It gives students time to reflect on themselves.
The schools wanted a new and effective way to keep kids focused so it brought Mindfulness Practitioner Janele Dupuis in twice a week for four weeks.

"They'll share with me, 'my little sister was just bothering me this weekend and I remembered to use my breath'," said Dupuis. 

Dupuis uses breathing exercises and meditation to show kids different tools to deal with life. 

"They're in control of how they react or respond to something," said Dupuis. 

The project goes beyond the classroom.

"I was able to get angry easily," said Neumann. 

It's also helped Neumann deal with nagging siblings.

"Now I try breathing," said Neumann.
