MARSHFIELD - The Marshfield Police Department wants to find three suspects it believes used counterfeit money at an area business.

According to a release from MPD and the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network, the suspects used two fake $100 bills to buy gas and food.


The suspects went to the convenience store on Sunday night, January 20. They arrived in a silver Mazda CX-9 that did not have license plates. Two women first went in the store and bought gas and food with the first $100 bill. Minutes later, the male suspect entered and bought more food with a second bill.

The male suspect was wearing a fur hat and coat. They also went to a large retail store in the general vicinity.

You can report tips anonymously to the Wood County Crimestoppers at 1-877-325-STOP (7861).

ANTIGO - Normally you need to do research to learn about historical figures. Friday, community members could go to Peace Lutheran in Antigo to meet live impersonators.

Planning for the event began last August. Students picked out a historical figure and researched the life of that person. They summarized that figure's life within the span of a minute. This is the event's first year. People were so excited they decided to show up early.

"We had people here lined up to come in and unfortunately I had to say, sorry the doors don't open until 1:30 [PM]," said Peace Lutheran School Administrator David Reineke. "We had a lot of people waiting and excited to see what the kids were going to do and they could learn from it."

RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Area Food Pantry has been holding classes on nutrition, but now it will be going in a different, more practical, direction. Through its new partnership with Feeding America, the shelves are being stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables. But that's not as easy as a quick burger and fries.

Karly Harrison's FoodWIse program has partnered with the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry for years, mostly by teaching nutrition classes. 

"If I didn't have the skills to prep it and somebody told me [about a nutritional meal,] I probably wouldn't go home and make it," said Karly Harrison of FoodWIse. "So being able to provide the skills - that they can go home and cook healthy foods for themselves and their family."
