Five Ironwood meth bust suspects face combined 370 years in prison
IRONWOOD, MI - Five people in the U.P. near Ironwood face a combined 370 years in prison. Police arrested them Monday during two separate methamphetamine busts.

Wendy Hemmings, George Davis and Kristin Carter were all associated with a meth lab on Florence Street in Ironwood.

Hemmings and Davis both face 90 years for their drug charges. Carter faces up to 50 years.

Also on Monday, police arrested Cindi Christensen and Joel Graser, Jr. in Ramsey, which is just east of Ironwood.

Christiensen and Graser both face up to 70 years in prison. Officers evacuated two neighbors during the busts. They wanted to make sure the dangerous meth-making materials didn't injure anyone as they were removed.

Police might not be done yet. The Gogebic Iron Area Narcotic Team thinks they may make more arrests for related crimes.

MINOCQUA -
Starting a new health routine can be intimidating, but easing into the process can do the trick.

Just as balance is key in yoga, it is important to have in your lifestyle, too.

That's a mindset that Laurel Parins lives by.

"Whether that is a twenty minute walk, a class here at the studio… that will make you happier when you're not restricting yourself," says Parins.

She opened Roots Health Studio in Minocqua at the end of May after working in the fitness and nutrition field in Green Bay for some years.

"I really wanted to bring my knowledge of healthy lifestyle-living back to the community I grew up in."

Laurel gets that a new "health journey" can be intimidating, but she says you can't go wrong.

"Once you try it, you'll never regret it."

Laurel offers yoga and barre classes, personal training, and nutrition services at Roots.
