LAND O' LAKES - A Northwoods woman's idea for potato chips could make her one million dollars richer. But she needs your help to do it.
Last fall Karen Weber-Mendham of Land O Lakes saw an ad for the Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" contest, and decided to enter.
Weber-Mendham chose cheesy garlic bread as her flavor.
In October, she found out she was a finalist in the top 3 of the competition.
She and the two other finalists went to the Lays headquarters in Dallas to taste their flavors.
"I got to see these chefs make actual cheesy garlic bread," Weber-Mendham said. "They perfect that recipe first. And then they had me take a bite of this cheesy garlic bread, and then hand me a potato chip. And I tasted the cheesy garlic bread potato chip."
The cheesy garlic bread flavor is up against Sriracha-- and chicken and waffles.
Karen is in New York City this week to promote her flavor.
Monday, she appeared on Good Morning America. Tuesday, she rang the opening bell for the New York Stock Exchange.
All three flavors are in stores now, and voting is open, although they're not in Rhinelander yet.
You can vote for the flavor by following the link below.
MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee mother whose car was stolen with her infant strapped in the back seat says she held onto the vehicle for as long as she could as the carjackers drove away.
The woman was dragged down the street in Milwaukee Monday and eventually lost her grip. But what happened next was unexpected. The car stopped about a block away. And, one of the two carjackers got out, removed the 1-month-old baby, still in his car seat, and left him at the curb.
Surveillance video from a nearby house shows the mother running to retrieve her baby, who wasn't hurt.
Police are looking for the carjackers and the vehicle.
EAGLE RIVER - Some schools give out movie tickets, pizza parties, or ice cream coupons for students with good grades and good behavior. We do things a little differently here in the Northwoods.
Twenty-two students from Northland Pines Middle School will enjoy a half-day of fishing with a local guide as a reward for their success in school. The "Guides for Grades" program rewarded students on Monday for setting a good example in the classroom.
