Look out for fake checksSubmitted: 07/31/2014

ANTIGO - You should look out for fake checks if you live in the Antigo.

Police believe a white man, a white woman and a black man are trying to use the checks in the area.

The group is driving a white four door Mercury Cougar. There should be damage on the driver's side hood above the headlight.

Police say the checks have business names of Grainger, Viking Electric and Northwoods fire protection. They also may be written out to Renee Reefer, Renee Rewler or Joseph Norris.

You shouldn't cash the checks.

If you have any information, contact Detective Daniel Duley at the Antigo Police Department.

Lake levels across the Northwoods were down. Way down.

"I'd get on my dock, I step off, and I walk another 20 feet, and I still haven't hit water yet," Watras says, echoing the situation of many other Northwoods lakefront property owners.

Early this decade, many Northwoods lake levels were down not simply by a matter of inches, but in some cases, several feet.
