Story By Lane Kimble


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.

LAND O' LAKES - The Land O Lakes Area Artisans (LOLA) Center went through some remodeling for its classroom.

After a few months, the classroom is finally finished, and it's being dedicated to a woman who left a big impact on the community.

Friends and family got together to remember Sandra Brown, who shared her love of art with the Land O Lakes community. She passed away in 2010.

Sandra gave her time and skills to areas that didn't have art programs, and they found a way to show their appreciation.

"The space has been enlarged greatly," said LOLA President Lynn Richie. "It was a coffee shop originally. And it's being dedicated to Sandra Hardy Brown, who was instrumental in bringing us money through a memorial fund when she passed away, and it helped kick start our art classes."
