Sports.jpg

01/21/2020- The Menominee City Police Department has received numerous reports of a string of recent auto break-ins in the city. While officials say this type of crime usually occurs in a “spree” type fashion and suspects are typically quickly apprehended, residents should take care to remove any valuables from their vehicles and keep the doors locked. In addition, people are encouraged to report any suspicious persons or behavior to the police or utilize the local Crime Stoppers tip line.

New HOPE Bills Advance

01/21/2020- Another round of legislation authored by a local lawmaker aimed at combating opioid abuse and rehabilitating addicts is moving forward. The newest package of bills in Representative John Nygren’s HOPE Agenda were unanimously approved at the committee level last week. Nygren says these bills build upon prior work, while at the same time expanding the scope of the HOPE agenda to address addiction in multiple facets. The legislation proposes expanded access to recovery housing, protection for state employees undergoing medication-assisted treatment, extending the prescription drug monitoring program requirements, and extending the 911 Good Samaritan Law. Nygren’s HOPE bills now head to the full Assembly floor.

Red Cross Puts Out Urgent Call for Donors

Sports.jpg

01/21/2020- The American Red Cross has extended its urgent call for donors of all blood types to give blood or platelets. With influenza escalating across the country and preventing some donors from giving, and winter weather threatening to cancel blood drives, the Red Cross now has a critical shortage of type O blood and urgently needs donors to restock the shelves.

Currently, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of type O blood available for patient emergencies and medical treatments. Type O positive blood is the most transfused blood type and can be given to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. While just 7% of the U.S. population has type O negative blood, it can be transfused to patients with any blood type and is what hospital staff reach for during emergencies when there isn’t time to determine a patient’s blood type.

Donors of all blood types – especially types O positive and O negative – are urged to make an appointment to give blood or platelets now using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.

There is a blood drive today in Marinette from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.at Holy Family Parish Center, 2735 Taylor Street and next Monday January 27th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.at Pine Tree Mall.

He also says the two hardware stores in the city will have available for sale receptacles that can be used for curbside pickup: green 32- gallon containers for trash, and blue 32- gallon containers for recycling. There will also be 14- gallon tote containers available for recycling. Graff says the city’s recycling center will remain open Until May 1st during the transition to the curbside recycling.

Sheriff’s Department to Purchase Bearcat

Sports.jpg

01/17/2020- Seven years after the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office first made the request, the County has finally approved the purchase of an armored rescue vehicle. Tuesday the County Board signed off on the acquisition of a refurbished 2004 Lenco ARV. That vehicle can be deployed for any number of potentially dangerous situations including those involving armed suspects, hostages, or for evacuation or prisoner transport. The Department has previously called on Brown County’s Bearcat in these types of events, but Sheriff Jerry Sauve says that reliance is a gamble that puts his officers and citizens at risk.
The price of a refurbished model is around $180000, while the cost of a new one is closer to $300000. Marinette County Patrol Lieutenant Jason Ducane says although the ARV they’re purchasing is already 16 years old, a complete refurbishment means it will likely remain operational for another twenty years or longer.
In addition to the purchase, the County Board also approved an MOU with the City of Marinette Police Department for joint operation of the Bearcat. The City is the only other law enforcement agency in the County with a Special Response Team trained to operate an ARV. That agreement will remain in effect for the life of the vehicle.

01/17/2020- Wisconsin’s Spring Primary is just over a month away and there are a few things local voters will need to keep in mind when they head to the polls.

Voters can check whether they are currently registered to vote online by visiting myvotewi.gov and those who wish to register on election day will need to provide a proof of residence document and photo ID. Absentee ballot requests for the Spring Primary can also be downloaded from the myvotewi.gov website or residents can vote absentee at the City Clerk’s Office February 3rd through the 14th.

Marinette County ADRC Stresses Scam Safety

Sports.jpg

01/17/2020- They contact you by phone, email, and can even go so far as stopping by your home- scammers looking to take advantage of your personal information and finances are becoming more common and more persistent. Nicole Albrecht works with Marinette County’s Adult Protective Services and says the elderly population are most at-risk of falling victim to these scam attempts, and oftentimes, once these people get ahold of your money, there’s no getting it back.
Albrecht says, when it comes to protecting yourself from these scams, the best defense is a good offense.
It’s estimated only about one in every four scam victims report what’s happened to them. For more information about scams or if you feel you may have fallen victim to one, call Marinette County Aging and Disability Resource Center at 715-732-3850.
