MARTY ON DRINKING and WISCONSIN

Rural Cadott woman gets five years' prison for driving drunk, killing beloved Stanley dentist

*********

I didn’t become a heavy drinker till I was 24…Why? I didn’t live in Wisconsin 'til I joined TV11 in Green Bay 1966…Those who worked with me then know I was an easy person to get drunk.

Wisconsin encouraged drinking.  I bought in. I drove home many nights back then. IMPAIRED. The worse was the night we celebrated JIM IRWIN getting the job at WTMJ.

I could have killed someone that night.  I swore off heavy drinking after that.  I now have a BEER a week.  If you know someone who drinks too much tell them this story.
