- Driver’s beware: If you use Highway 32 in Caledonia to get around, you’ll want to know that the resurfacing project starts next week.
2. Racine man faces attempted homicide charges after running over a 20-year-old West Allis woman with his car.
3. Unwanted electronics? You don’t want those in the landfill. So the City of Racine is having a free eWaste recycling event. Here’s what you need to know.
4. A Kenosha man is facing charges after deputies with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department searched his car and found over 200 viles of marijuana.
5. If you need relief from certain ailments, a local resident has opened a CBD oil store called Your CBD Store.
CBD is extracted from the male hemp plant, which has been grown for industrial uses for decades. The oil can also be extracted from the female marijuana plant, but only legally processed in a handful of states; Wisconsin is not one of them. It is described as a non-psychoactive substance, as opposed to the highly psychoactive relative, THC.
