MENOMONEE FALLS - Police are hoping to find evidence in a Menomonee Falls landfill about the disappearance of a Milwaukee woman who has been missing for over two weeks.
Because the investigation is ongoing, the Milwaukee Police Department is releasing few details. Police found nothing in the landfill on Saturday, but Lt. Mark Stanmeyer says the search resumed Sunday.
Twenty-seven-year-old Kelly Dwyer's mother reported her missing Oct. 12 after she failed to show up for work. She hadn't been back to her apartment and hadn't been using her cellphone.
Dwyer's boyfriend has been arrested twice in recent days, once on drug charges and another for possession of child pornography. He has told police he and Dwyer snorted cocaine together Oct. 10, but he has denied involvement in her disappearance.
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander student made it onto her school bus and to class unhurt last Tuesday, but she almost didn't. A recent close call left Bowen Bus Service employees wondering if Rhinelander will be the next to see a student killed while simply trying to get to and from school.
On Hwy 8 last week a student was nearly hit by a truck at her bus stop, leaving the bus driver in disbelief. In a surveillance video from the bus, you can hear the bus driver say "That car like just missed you. That truck just missed her."
RHINELANDER - It's easy to slip on ice, skid on roads, or get stuck in the snow.
One thing that also happens is joint pain from common winter activities.
Shoveling heavy snow is one of the biggest problems Rhinelander Chiropractor Dr. Tony Lowenberg sees causing this pain.
He said shoveling is a physical activity that can cause excessive stress on the body; especially for people who don't lift heavy often.
"Lifting and the twisting creates wear and tear on their body. Then [people] feel it as pain and then their muscles get tight because they are not used to lifting stuff," said Dr. Lowenberg. "It's more people that are not used a physical job, shoveling can be [troublesome]."
TOMAHAWK - After a bitterly cold November, road crews in Tomahawk enjoyed a warm up on Monday. But temperatures shifting above and below freezing this week will create perfect conditions for a lot more work. John Cole is the Director of Public Works for the City of Tomahawk. He says that pothole issues are something that his crew fights all season long.
"It's job security, it's not a good job security, but it is job security for sure because you always have potholes to fill," said Cole. "When you get that expansion and contraction, we get water in those cracks, and when you get the traffic and people driving on them."
In Tomahawk, Cole sends crews out every week to look for potholes and fill them. He also sends out crews whenever they get a call about a bad pothole.
