Story By Lyndsey Stemm


RHINELANDER - A woman accused of embezzling close to half a million dollars will go to federal prison. Susan Tatro was sentenced today in federal court.

She used to be the Human Resources Director at the Waukesha Bearings plant in Antigo. Tatro was fired in 2011 when the company discovered financial records didn't add up.

She finally admitted she took money on a number of occasions. She also acknowledged she had a serious gambling problem.

Tatro faced more than 30 counts of federal wire fraud, but reached a deal. She pleaded guilty to two counts.

Tatro will spend 3 years in prison and three years on supervised release. She also has to pay back the nearly half million dollars she stole.

MANITOWISH WATERS - Days like Tuesday make you want to get outside and maybe go for a bike ride.

It's only a matter of time until bicyclists start hitting the trails, and the bike trails in Manitowish Waters are prepared for it.

The Uihlein family established a $2 million trust fund that will pay for the bike trail's maintenance in the town.

"This fund will be available to provide funding probably for forever," said Manitowish Waters Town Chairman John Hanson.

The bike trail starts in Manitowish Waters and connects to Boulder Junction.

That's about a 17-mile ride.

Hanson says tourists love it.

"It brings a lot of people here," Hanson said. "We've had even people fly into the airport, get their collapsible bike out of the airplane and go for a bike ride."

He says the trails will open as soon as the weather allows.
