Tackling the winter trails on fat tire bikes

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY --  If you’ve been looking past the couch lately for your lost New Year's resolution about getting in shape, you’re not alone. According a study from the University of Scranton Journal of Clinical Psychology, only one in 10 resolution-making souls achieve their goals by Feb. 1, if at all. Equally adding to the misery for those in the Midwest is the bone-chilling, snow-laden landscape we face each winter.

One of your best bets for braving the outdoors while getting some exercise may be a bicycle.

BELOIT -- Lori Curtis Luther describes her first seven months as Beloit’s city manager as "uniquely challenging."

Just this week, she's helped calm a grieving city following the shooting death of 5-year-old Austin Ramos Jr.

That follows months-long maneuvering to remove the police chief, and next up is a tough city budget.

UPDATE -- Jan. 29, 2016. Beloit police today announced the arrest of Hugo Martinez, 18, in connection with the shooting death Jan. 22, 2016 of 5-year-old Austin Ramos Jr.

Martinez had been identified as a fourth person of interest in Ramos Jr.'s death.  

Eric Salazar-Mota and Sergio Ortiz-Raygoza are currently are wanted and police say the face charges of homicide party to a crime.

A fourth man, Isaac W. Torres, was picked up by authorities in McHenry County, Illinois on an unrelated warrant of substantial battery. He is being returned to Rock County.
